The recent spill of Bunker C oil from the former pulp mill isn’t likely to affect the City of Prince Rupert’s already-tight budget. As the owner of the site, the City of Prince Rupert is responsible for maintaining the old Skeena Cellulose pulp mill while the ownership of the site is under legal dispute. The provincial government can recover cleanup costs when it takes action under the - David Karn environmental management act, as it did with the recent Watson Island fuel spill. The cost of the cleanup is unknown at this time, but a B.C. Ministry of Environment spokesperson said the province will be paying for the cleanup and will consider cost recovery if appropriate, meaning the city may be given a bill for the work.

Food, sport fishery closed for first time ever Low sockeye return impacting every sector BY SHAUN THOMAS PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

The First Nations food fishery and the recreational fishery are the latest victims of the low Skeena River sockeye returns. Mel Kotyk, North Coast area director with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, confirmed the First Nations food fishery was closed as of midnight last Monday until Aug. 23 for an area covering the marine water right up to the Babine fence. For the recreational sockeye fishery, the closure extends from the Pacific to the Skeena River, its tributaries and right through to the Babine River and Babine Lake. The reason for the closure is due to the extremely low number of salmon returning to

“To the best of my knowledge this has never been implemented on the Skeena.” - Mel Kotyk the system. The DFO estimates that only 408,000 fish have returned, well below initial estimates of between 600,000 and 800,000. Kotyk said this is the first time these steps have hit the Skeena. “There have been food restrictions on the Fraser River and in some other localized circumstances, however ... to the best of my knowledge this has

never been implemented for the Skeena River,” he said. The closure of the recreational sockeye fishery will be felt on the pocketbooks of charter operators in the region, but Stan Doll with Skeena Wilderness Adventures, a charter company that runs on the river, said the low numbers make the closure understandable. “We like fishing them, they put up a good fight and are a good-tasting fish, and we don’t have that much of an impact on the numbers, but if they’re going to close every other fishery, then it is fair that they close us down too. We understand, that the lack of sockeye is evident to those on the river. “Normally you see them jumping and flipping everywhere. We’re just not seeing them.”

Legal dispute Crime severity lowest in five years delays billing Case clearance Watson from Page A1 Corinne Bomben, the city’s acting chief financial officer, said the city hasn’t been in discussions with the province about a potential bill for the cleanup and isn’t expecting to have to pay for it. The province still hasn’t charged the city for the cleanup of sulphuric acid from a spill that took place at Watson Island last year. “There remains ongoing litigation around ownership of the site and the tanks, as such the province has not yet pursued cost recovery,” B.C. Ministry of Environment spokesperson David Karn said via email. While a temporary patch was applied to the leaking pipe on Aug. 2, a Ministry of Environment spokesperson told the Northern View the patch job didn’t completely stop the leak but “reduced it to a fraction of what it was previously”. The Coast Guard put down an oil boom, which the spokesperson said has been containing the oil. Prior to the patch job, an estimated one to 1.5 litres of Bunker C oil was spilling into the ocean every day. The ministry has decided to permanently resolve the issue and remove the pipeline from along the dock, with Karn saying the plan will take more than a week to be put in action. The Watson Island site pipe had been leaking intermittently for 11 days on Aug. 6, with the ministry being aware of the leak since July 27.

not keeping pace


Prince Rupert crime is on the decline, according to numbers released by Stats Canada on Aug. 7. In 2012, Prince Rupert’s Crime Severity Index (CSI), which examines both the amount of crime and the relative seriousness of the crimes responded to by RCMP, was the lowest in five years and down 12 per cent from the 2011 figures. The CSI includes all Criminal Code violations including traffic, as well as drug violations and all federal statutes. As well as the overall CSI, both the violent crime severity index, which looks only at violent crimes such as assault, uttering threats, criminal harassment and forcible confinement, and the non-violent crime severity index were the lowest in five years. In particular, the violent crime severity index was down 22 per cent from 2011. Const. Matt Ericson said the decrease in crime severity shows steps being taken at the detachment are working. “Our general investigation team has been increased, with the recent

placement of a new sergeant to oversee the section. In turn this has allowed the team’s corporal to be readily available for operations instead of fulfilling administrative duties. In addition to this, the crime reduction position has continued to be very successful with the regular monitoring of Prince Rupert’s more prolific offenders. The Prince Rupert Bar Watch Program has also continued to increase licensee accountability and has demonstrated a reduction in civil disobedience and a reduction of harm to Prince Rupert’s citizens,” he explained. “It is our belief that the city of Prince Rupert is and will continue to be a safe community and that this has been demonstrated in the downward

trend in crime. The Prince Rupert RCMP is committed to promoting safe homes and safe communities and that we can build on our current success by being proactive with this strategy by preventing crime in the onset rather than the outset.” But the news is not all good for the local detachment. The weighted clearance rate, which looks at the number of cases cleared by police, and the violent weighted clearance rate were the lowest in five years and were down from 2011 numbers 13.86 per cent and 15.88 per cent respectively. The non-violent weighted clearance rate was the second highest in five years, but was also down 9.4 per cent from 2011.

Tsimshian in Ministers tout LNG potential charge of hotel development By Shaun Thomas

PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

By Shaun Thomas PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

The future of a massive hotel in downtown Prince Rupert now rests in the hands of the Coast Tsimshian. Geoff Greenwell of the 2G Group, the company that announced plans to construct an office and hotel building at the site of the old Elizabeth Apartments in April, confirmed that the location has been turned over to a partnership of the Lax Kw’alaams and Metlakatla First Nations. However, he said the company would continue to assist the Coast Tsimshian with zoning applications or in any other way necessary. Metlakatla Chief Harold Leighton said the deal was finalized late last week, and the Tsimshian are eager to move forward with developing the property. “The next steps will be to plan for the development, and we’re hopeful that in the next two years we will have something built on the site ... we’re hoping it will move fast,” he said, adding that the group will be looking at a request for proposals in the near future. “We would be looking at some possibly high-end mixed-use development with condos, a restaurant, a hotel and that type of thing ... we’re looking at the 2G Group concept. Whether it will be the same we don’t know yet, but that is the idea we are looking at.”

The development of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the province will result in a bright and prosperous future for the Northwest, two visiting provincial ministers said. Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development Coralee Oakes and Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation John Rustad were in Prince Rupert on Aug. 7 to meet with elected officials and the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce, and spoke to how large the opportunities are with LNG. “We have 15 proposals across the province right now. If five of these projects go forward, we would need a workforce of approximately 135,000 people ... companies like Shell and Petronas are spending $1 billion just to get to the point where they can make a decision. They haven’t even decided yet and are spending that much money because they believe in the opportunity in B.C.,” explained Rustad, noting there is a window of time to make the most of the opportunities. “It is up to us if we want to seize it, because the opportunity is there ... but we are in a race, a race with the rest of the world. If we stumble, these companies will look at opportunities elsewhere.”

Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development Coralee Oakes listens as Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation John Rustad speaks to members of the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce.

But for the community to see the most benefit from the industry, Rustad said First Nations in the region need to see benefits as well. “You cannot have a prosperous Prince Rupert if you don’t have prosperous communities around you. It just can’t happen,” he said, adding First Nations involvement will only help with project development. “These companies need to ensure they have certainty on the land, and we are working with First Nations to provide them that.” For her part, Oakes said she was in town to hear from businesses and people about what is needed to make the industry on the North Coast a reality. “I understand the fears, the

concerns and understand the business community questioning how they are going to prepare for this opportunity ... I understand how difficult it is to get the infrastructure in place needed by rural communities,” she said. “LNG can’t be successful if communities are not successful. We understand that.” Former mayor and former B.C. Liberal candidate Herb Pond echoed the need for the government to get involved in bringing these industries to town. “I am hoping the province is keenly aware that the City of Prince Rupert is still on wobbly knees from the last goaround and will not be in a position to provide infrastructure needed for these companies,” he said.

Fishermen deserve answers


omething is fishy with the Skeena River sockeye, and somebody needs to come up with answers. In a river that is world renowned for its fishery, where guides talk about the millions of sockeye that can be found in the river year in and year out, just over 400,000 sockeye made their way back to the Skeena. The DFO warned that this could be a bad year for the fishery, estimating between 600,000 and 800,000 sockeye would be returning to the spawning beds. The upper figure, 800,000, is low but not that far off of the 963,000 salmon that were estimated to have returned back in 2010. But only half of that number have Shaun Thomas found their way back to the northwest after spawning in 2009. Clearly, it’s not quite the collapse experienced on the Fraser River back in 2009, when only 1.4 million sockeye of an estimated 10 million returned. But when the numbers are so low that recreational fishermen and First Nations are not allowed to retain a single sockeye on the Skeena River for sustenance purposes for the first time in history, there is clearly an issue that needs to be examined. Is it, as environmental groups contend, overfishing by the Alaskan fleet? Is it an issue of government cutback and habitat deterioration as groups such as the Babine First Nation contend? Is there something else at play that hasn’t been considered? The sockeye returns have closed the commercial fishery, taking money out of the community, and left First Nations elders without a source of traditional food for the winter. And, as alluded to by Joy Thorkelson of the UFAWU, the low numbers paint a grim picture for the returns four years from now. While it would be easy to simply put this drop in sockeye stocks down to a natural cycle, that seems fairly simplistic and does a great disservice to those who have had their livelihoods impacted. The government owes the people more than that.

Artist thanks Rupert Editor: Support and spirit is what makes a community strong, and Prince Rupert, you’ve got a lot of it! During my time painting murals around Prince Rupert people have always made me feel welcome. The level of support and friendliness continued during the time I painted my most recent mural on McBride Street. First and foremost, I’ve got to thank Mastermind behind all this colour and craziness ... Glen Saunders. Without you, none of this would’ve happened and I wouldn’t have met all these wonderful people. I was actually planning on retiring from the mural business when you got ahold of me three years ago, but I’m thankful you got me into this mess! I feel so at home here, and it’s because of you. Especially considering you’ve opened your home to me and my drooly beast. Not many would! Prince Rupert, you’re extremely friendly! So many people stopped to give me words of encouragement while I was working on the mural. But not everyone offering me words of encouragement actually stopped; There were also people yelling from the side of the road, and drivers honking, waving and smiling. Apparently you guys liked it. That, or I must’ve been in your way. I’ve gotta give gratitude to the people who bought me coffee out of the blue while I was

working to keep me energized. I also am grateful to the taxi driver who gave me a tip to buy a sixpack of beer. You’re awesome, man! I’m appreciative to the people that helped keep me and my dog, Nuke, fed, including the two little girls that brought Nuke a little present, some treats. For those who I have missed, you know who you are. Or at least you’ll make sure I know who you are! I only have so much room here, but thank you to everyone whose helped me with my many murals in Prince Rupert. And last but not least, I want to thank Nuke my dog for being so well-behaved and not doing anything stupid. My loyal supporter Nuke, who never leaves my side. It’s probably because I feed you. Keep your eyes open Prince Rupert, there’s more to come! I hope to make your town as beautiful as I can! Jeff King and Nuke the dog

Editor: The final hearings for the Joint Review Panel on the Northern Gateway Pipeline proposal concluded in Terrace with a masterful rebuttal of opposition by Enbridge’s lawyer. However, that lawyer neglected the greatest problem of the proposal: global warming’s increasingly deleterious effect on the present and for the future. That neglect was evident in three ways: the emphasis on revenue, the narrow view on job creation, and the narrower view still on public interest. On revenue, the emphasis on quick return for as much export as possible means that much more carbon in the atmosphere and that much more mean weather rather than gradual, longerterm accrual of income from slower, more conscientious exploitation.

On jobs, the quantity nowhere near matches what would be possible if we began, now, to convert from carbon-dependent transport to advanced rail. The spin-off benefits from that alone would dwarf tar-sand exploitation. On public interest, the short-term tax and royalty generation nowhere near compensates for the disaster that global warming and climate change have in store, if not for us immediately, then absolutely for future generations. Calgary has now become emblematic of the climate threat we face. An act of God, insurers say, has devastated the city. One has to ask, what has Calgary done to upset God so much? You don’t need religion to answer that. Dr. David Heinimann, Terrace, B.C.

s business at the Port of Prince Rupert has grown, so too has the need to keep a vigilant watch over harbour activity. The Port Security Operations Centre (PSOC) is responsible for monitoring the entirety of the Port of Prince Rupert through a network of surveillance cameras and security personnel. But it requires the support of a capable vessel and experienced crew on the water to investigate and respond to harbour incidents in-person. In 2010, the Prince Rupert Port Authority commissioned a new harbour patrol vessel to be built locally by Broadwater Industries to replace the aging M.V. Charles Hays port vessel—which served for 22 years. The new and improved Charles Hays was launched in April 2011. It was the largest boat that Broadwater had built to date. The 12-metre vessel is equipped with twin Volvo Penta diesel 330 horsepower D6 engines, has a maximum speed of 35 knots and a range of 300 nautical miles. The Charles Hays is responsible for enforcing the Canada Marine Act and its regulations within harbour limits. Duties of the patrol vessel and its crew include: q monitoring infrastructure across the 366 kilometres of coastline the Port Authority is mandated to steward; q performing escorts of inbound and outbound container ships, ensuring environmental compliance by port terminals and ships at anchor; q monitoring the harbour anchorages to maintain the safety and security of ships waiting to berth at port terminals; q enforcing designated speed zones; and q providing port orientations for corporate and government officials visiting Prince Rupert. “We can be out on the water at all hours of night if required,” said Steve Robin, Supervisor of Marine Operations for the Prince Rupert Port Authority. “Just recently the Charles Hays responded to significant incidents— including a tsunami warning and a container vessel grounding, both of which saw us at station throughout the night. We’ve dealt with fires on the water, assisted mariners in distress, performed perimeter security on the waterfront during a bomb threat, and the list goes on. “We’ve doubled our staff over the last year to meet the growing demand for the services we provide on a daily basis.” The four full-time crew members of the Charles Hays and the Port Authority’s Operations department work closely with marine stakeholders like the RCMP, Canada Border Service Agency, Canadian Coast Guard and Western Canada Marine Response Corporation (WCMR) to coordinate safe and efficient activity in Prince Rupert’s coastal waters. “The Charles Hays is just one of the many well-fitted vessels in Prince Rupert,” said Robin. “The Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue’s Orme G. Stuart, WCMR’s Eagle Bay and the Coast Guard’s environmental response vessel are all examples of the capacity that exists to orchestrate coordinated response to marine situations of every kind. We’re very fortunate to have such extensive resources and support in Prince Rupert to keep our harbour one of the safest in North America.” Re:port is a collaborative promotional venture by the Prince Rupert Port Authority and The Northern View.

PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

The Prince Rupert Fire Department was called out to a fire on 8th Ave. West in the late morning hours of Aug. 8. “We responded to a call of a kitchen fire on the top floor. When we arrived we were told there may be people still on the middle floor, but we were able to confirm everyone was out of the building and there were no injuries,” reported deputy fire chief Jeff Beckwith. “The fire was contained to

the kitchen, but the upper floor suffered heat and smoke damage. The other floors suffered water damaged from the suppression efforts. “It was a pretty quick put down, I’m really proud of how the guys handled it, but the top floor is a complete write-off.” This is the second kitchen fire for the department in the last three days, with a fire on Eagle Drive requiring the rescue of four individuals from an upper balcony while the flames were being doused.

You will want to look to sky this afternoon as the Canadian Forces Snowbirds put their acrobatic flying skills on display. The show, which gets underway at 4 p.m. over the harbour, will include music, play-by-play that can be heard at Rotary Waterfront Park or on CFNR at 98.1 FM. The best place to watch the show is either at Waterfront Park, Mariner’s Park or the Rupert Square parking lot. The Snowbirds are returning after weather forced the cancellation of the show in 2011. Major Denis Bandet was one of those pilots who were unable to perform that year, and said the entire team is looking forward to giving fans a chance to see what they missed last time. “It was truly heartbreaking for all of the guys to have to leave without putting on a show last year. There are things out of our

What we do is to demonstrate the precision and skill the pilots in the Canadian Forces are capable of ... our intent is that after 40 minutes people will say, ‘that was 40 minutes

and that was awesome!’ We want people to lose track of that time and just be in awe.” But more than being in the air, Bandet said one of the things he enjoys about being a Snowbird is being meeting Canadians across the country. Look for complete coverage of the Snowbirds performance online at www.

PRFC second in tournament BY MARTINA PERRY PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

The Prince Rupert Football Club (PRFC) placed second in a soccer tournament held at the beginning of the month, bringing the team’s record to four tournament titles and two runnerup wins. PRFC played six games over the two-day tournament, which included the Kispiox Eagles, Kitwanga Young Guns, Hazelton Strikers, Glen Vowell, Nisga’a and Gitsegukla Tigers. Prince Rupert’s team pushed themselves hard on the second day of the tournament, having to go through the back door to make it to the final match. The team ran out of steam in the final against the Hazelton Strikers - Kendall Wing after playing three consecutive games in a row. The final score of the game was 4-0 for the Strikers. This came after beating the Kispiox Eagles 1-0 in their first game of the day, with PRFC’s Marc Montelone scoring the team’s deciding goal, and edging Nisga’a 6-4 on goals from Montelone, Nathan Paolinelli, David Sandhu and Micheal Yeomans. On the first day of the tournament, PRFC won two of the three games they competed in, beating the Kispiox Eagles and Kitwanga Young Guns. However the team was unable to overtake their fierce competitors, the Hazelton Strikers, losing their second game of the tournament 1-0. The team took a brief break from practice last week and are now preparing for the next tournament, which PRFC is hosting along with the Nisga’a team over the Labour Day weekend. “We want fans to come out and watch us and help cheer us on. We’re doing good this year, we’re No. 1 from here to Prince George. We’re the team to look out for,” Kendall Wing, who took over coaching duties after being injured earlier this season. Wing said seven to 10 teams from around northern British Columbia will be competing at the Prince Rupert tournament for a top cash prize of $6,000. Games will begin on Sat., Aug. 31 and will wrap up on Sept. 1. Prince Rupert players will be coming out in full force, with an A and B team planning to compete.

Skateboarder Tanner Tsuji was one of many to compete in the Extreme Tour’s skateboard demonstration and competition last week. The Extreme Tour held the skateboarding event, as well as a free concert in Prince Rupert. The tour was created in the U.S. in 1994 as a way to reach out to at-risk and counter-culture youth and encourage them to make positive choices.

Drag racers in tight race for first BY MARTINA PERRY PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

Engines were revving and tires were smoking during the Hot August Nites Drag Races in Terrace over the Victoria Day weekend. For the first day of Hot August Nites, drivers were racing for points as part of the season’s points series. In the Junior Dragster Class, Prince Rupert’s Shelby Peterson raced his way to third place beating out five other northwest drivers. This is Peterson’s first year racing and he is currently in a tie for third place in the season’s standings with 128 points. Kitimat’s Lou Ribeiro took the top spot in the Junior Dragster Class race over the weekend and in overall points with 182, closely followed by fellow Kitimat racer Tanner Daum who placed second at the race and overall with 181 points.

Prince Rupert’s Ed Evans dominated in the Pro Class, which pushed his total points throughout the season to 210, putting him in the lead in his class from third. Following Evans was Kitimat’s Randy Baker and Terrace’s Tony DeMelo. In overall points, Kitimat’s Dana Amado is in second with 177 points, with Smithers’ Ken Kaperlari in third with 147 points. Rupertites didn’t place well in the Super Pro Class category, consisting of the fastest cars. Prince Rupert’s Gord Hidber tied for fourth place, with Terry Frizzell and Aaron McIntyre both being eliminated in the first round. Bruce Daum from Kitimat took the top spot in the Super Pro Class, and is also first in the season’s standings with 178 points. Kitimat’s Kory Botz placed second, followed by Burns Lake’s Mike Weinhardt in third. Following Daum in overall points

this season is Kris Barnett from Terrace with 167 points and Harley Bell from Kitimat with 156 points. The last opportunity for racers to gain points will be at the Terrace Drags on Aug. 24 and 25. Drivers from all over the Northwest are expected to compete at the final event of the year. Prince Rupert racers weren’t so lucky on the second day of Hot August Nites, when the Quick 8, Gambler and King races were held. In the King of the YXT race, Smithers’ Matt Marshall taking the top spot, with Kitimat’s Quinn Amado winning the Junior King race. Rory Boyko from Smithers tested his luck and was successful in the Gambler Race. Bruce Daum was not only the fastest in the Super Pro Class in the first day of racing, but also sped his way to number one in the MacCarthy GM Quick 8 race the following day.

Northern Industrial Sales grand opening tomorrow BY SHAUN THOMAS PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

As industrial activity picks up on the North Coast, a familiar business is re-opening its doors in Cow Bay. Northern Industrial Sales will be celebrating the grand opening of its new storefront location at 205 3rd Ave. East, next to Rupert Meats, tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. that will include tool giveaways, prize draws, a live radio broadcast and food and refreshments. According to Tim Lepp, regional manager for Northern Industrial Sales, it only made sense for the business to increase its presence in the community. “We never really left, we had a warehouse up on Chamberlain and we had a local account executive. But our business has grown so much in the last 12 to 18 months with new industry coming to town and, because of that, we have the opportunity to open a retail outlet in town,” he said. “We have been closed for about five years, but we’re excited to be coming back into the Prince Rupert market with the store ... people we have heard from seem happy that there will be more options for industrial supplies in town.” While the store carries the products

“Northern Industrial Sales has a wide enough selection to meet everyone’s needs.”

Shaun Thomas / The Northern View

In addition to carrying everything from wrenches and hammers to paint and cleaning supplies, as well as a stocked warehouse in back, Northern Industrial Sales has access to more than 300,000 products through its network of suppliers. The company will be hosting its grand opening tomorrow with tool giveaways, refreshments and more. Northern Industrial Sales is located at 25 3rd Ave. East, next to Rupert Meats.

- Tim Lepp most in demand by NIS customers, Lepp said it is just a fraction of what people can purchase through the business. “We have access to over 300,000 products through our supplier, so we can sell anything and everything industrial. From hand tools to power tools to safety gear or rain gear, we have it,” he said, noting NIS also sells products for the home handyman including hammers, tape measures, spill control and gloves. “From the average guy walking in off the street to the large construction company coming into town for a major project, Northern Industrial Sales has a wide enough selection to meet everyone’s needs.” Charlie Shepherd, the Prince Rupert account executive for Northern Industrial Sales, can be reached at the store at 250-627-8700.

Keeping a traditional art form alive Seven Chilkat weavers come together for inspiration and support BY SHAUN THOMAS PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

In the small space of the former carving shed, seven women came together last week to learn from one another, to inspire each other and to ensure a traditional First Nations art form remains a vibrant part of the culture. The women – members of the Tsimshian, Haida, Nisga’a and Kwakwakawakw nations – are among the few in the world who practice Chilkat weaving, one of the most complex weaving techniques in the world but one that produces beautiful blankets, robes, aprons and leggings adorned with faces and symbols of the culture. These finished pieces would be worn by Chiefs and people of high status within the nation during potlatches – only a few Nations have the right to wear these blankets and fewer individuals have the right to weave them. The women, along with teacher Willy White, are among only 30 or 40 Chilkat weavers in the world. “The word for this in our language is gwishalyaht, which translates to spirit wrapped around you. When you put that robe around you, you’re being wrapped in the spirit. It is all about the supernatural world we live beside,” explained Willy White, who taught the women and said there are very strict protocols involved in the weaving. “Chilkat weaving is a gift. Not everyone is given to doing this ... it’s just not for everyone to learn.” Aside from the amount of time, patience and expertise needed to create a Chilkat-weaved piece, the art form laid dormant for many years because of the restriction placed on First Nations culture. “The importance of Chilkat weaving is that it gets danced. They get used in ceremonies, potlatches and they get danced. I was very fortunate from a young age to see them danced and see my grandmother weave ... when she passed away I saw them danced but nobody was weaving them,” explained Donna Cranmer, a Kwakwakawakw weaver who has been weaving for 20 years “There was a time when the government outlawed our culture, and that is when a lot of people gave it up ... there were people who were strong enough not to give it up though, they kept doing it and kept it alive.” White, who was taught to weave from a young age, has been doing everything is his power to keep the art form alive. Through his work, Chilkat weaving once again has a strong future on the North Coast. “I teach because I want to pass on what I have learned for future generations,” he said. “The goal is that I teach one woman in each village and she takes her niece or granddaughter aside and teaches them to weave ... all of these women are going to be teachers.” The gathering, entitled Chilkat Weavers Circle 2013: Strengthening the Warp, is a rare chance for those who create this artwork to come together in the spirit of learning and fellowship. The last time such a gathering was held was in 2000, 13 years ago. Throughout the week, the women shared with each other different techniques and skills including working with mountain goat wool, dyeing the wool using traditional and natural items and joinery techniques for the work. “This week has been a very strong, powerful medicine for us because it is so great to be with other artists and spend this time together ... we don’t have the time usually, we have to struggle to make time and we all have second jobs to support our art,” said Carol Young, a Nisga’a and Haida artist. “It is a very lonely craft. Most of us work alone in our homes, so it is very nice to come together and inspire each other,” said Sherri Dick, a Haida weaver from Haida

“This week has been a very strong, powerful medicine for us.” - Carol Young Gwaii. “To come out and weave with all these ladies who have so much knowledge, it’s inspiring and I am humbled by it to be honest,” said Pearl Innis, a Tsimshian weaver. The gathering was made possible by a $20,000 grant from the Canadian Council for the Arts following an application from Joanne Finlay. “The significance of the art form for me is that it is something that is used and has been used in our culture forever,” she said. “The knowledge in this room is incredible. Truly incredible”. Of note, five of the few Chilkat weavers practising today reside in Prince Rupert, making it one of the highest concentrations of weavers in the world.

Rupert family featured in national campaign Ad spread in Today’s Parent

By Martina Perry PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

A fashionable Prince Rupert family is featured in this month’s Today’s Parent magazine that about 1.6 million Canadians will see. The Denton-Bartlett family, consisting of mom Mary Bartlett, father Trevor Denton, daughters Araya, 11, and Hyla, eight, and one-year-old son Piers, appeared in the H&M Fashion Family Back to School campaign in the magazine. In the multiple-page ad, members of the family model an arrangement of H&M outfits. Today’s Parent teamed up for the promotion, adding back to school tips for families with shots of the family. The Denton-Bartlett family was flown to Toronto in May for the photoshoot. “We went there and had an entire day of everything from manicures to make up to a full photoshoot,” Bartlett said, adding her daughters enjoyed the experience. “It’s every little girl’s dream,” she said. “It’s glamorous for kids to go and see the whole model and fashion side of things, especially in Toronto.” The family had a subscription to Today’s Parent, but were surprised to hear they would be featured in the Canadian magazine. Trevor’s sister, Laura Denton, is the

creative director for Roger Media, working with the company’s clients and sales team to come up with multi-platform advertising and creative solutions. One of Roger Media’s clients is H&M. One of Laura’s tasks was to help select possible candidates for the ad. “After putting a couple rounds of choices in front of our client, I included [my brother’s] family ... I knew they were perfect, but really I put them in being cheeky. When we followed up with the client and they said they wanted my family, I thought they were teasing back. But they were absolutely serious,” Laura said. Laura was proud of how her brother’s family performed on set. “I’ve worked with real people hundreds of times for various shoots ... and it’s always understandably harder than working with models,” she said. “Trev, Mary and the kids were unbelievable. They showed amazing energy and looked even better than I could have ever hoped. They honestly performed like models. Even baby Piers was a cooperative superstar.” The H&M Fashion Family Back to School campaign is promoting a contest H&M is currently running to find the next “fashion family”. Winners of the contest will get the same experience as the Denton-Bartlett’s: a family photoshoot

The Bartlett-Denton family participate in a photoshoot for H&M as part of an ad campaign in this month’s issue of Today’s Parenting.

for an upcoming H&M ad in the magazine and a $5,000 shopping spree. According to Rogers Publishing, Today’s Parent has a readership of 1,683,000 people. As well as being in print, the ad the Denton-Bartlett’s are in can been seen on the contest’s website, as well as the

magazine’s site. Additionally, footage from the photoshoot was featured in a television commercial aired on CityTV and in H&M store signage across the country. Families interested in entering the contest can do so at HMFamily.

Pinnacle names terminal operator By Shaun Thomas PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

Pinnnacle Renewable Resources took a major step toward the opening of Westview Terminal last week, naming Metro Ports Canada as the terminal operator. “The reason we selected Metro Ports is because they have such an extensive history of handling dry bulk commodities that come with a risk of dust ... they operate in the Port of Long Beach, which is a highly regulated port, so we see them as highly qualified to operate Westview Terminal,” said Pinnacle Renewable Resources president and chief operating officer Leroy Reitsma. “We’re on schedule to begin operations in the fourth quarter of this year. We should start handling rail traffic before the first week of October,” he said.

Fairview traffic down from 2012 By Martina Perry PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

Traffic through Fairview Terminal remains below the numbers from 2012, as July marked the third month of double-digit year-over-year decline. This July, 43,219 TEUs moved through the terminal compared to 48,977 last July, a drop of 11.8 per cent. Imports through Prince Rupert were down 14.4 per cent, sitting at 23,721 TEUs compared to 27,698 TEUs last July, and exports were down 8.4 per cent, though the decline was driven by empty container movement as the number of loaded containers leaving the North Coast increased 38.6 per cent. Through the first seven months of 2013, traffic through Fairview Terminal has dropped from 321,153 TEUs to 307,064 TEUs, a difference of 4.4 per cent. Exports have fallen 6.9 per cent, sitting 169,961 TEUs compared to 182,482 TEUs in 2012, and exports are down 1.1 per cent and sit at 137,103 TEUs. Again, however, the number of loaded containers being exported is up, increasing by 14.7 per cent, while the number of empty containers being exported is down by 19.3 per cent. This is the second month Fairview’s year-to-date numbers have been below those of 2012. In contrast to Fairview Terminal,

The fourth crane is now in place at Fairview Terminal, but traffic so far this year is less than in 2012.

numbers are up throughout every other terminal operation in Prince Rupert after a June that saw tonnage down across the port. In July, Ridley Terminals handled 1.1. million tonnes of coal compared to 1.04 million tonnes last July, an increase of 6.6 per cent, and so far this year the terminal has handled 7.1 million tonnes compared to 6.7 million tonnes through the first seven months of 2012. Prince Rupert Grain (PRG) saw a significant jump in traffic this July, shipping 86,100 tonnes of canola compared to none last year and almost doubling the amount of wheat being moved. In total, last month PRG shipped 417,633 tonnes compared to 167,595 tonnes last July, an increase

of 149 per cent, and so far this year the terminal has surpassed 3.1 million tonnes of product compared to 2.7 million tonnes last year. The number of logs being shipped from the harbour more than doubled in July, rising from 20,470 tonnes last year to 41,853 tonnes this year. So far this year, log exports are up 36.5 per cent and sit at 247,022 tonnes compared to 181,026 tonnes through to July 31 last year. So far this year, tonnage through the Prince Rupert Port Authority remains above last year’s record numbers. There has been 13.5 million tonnes moved through Prince Rupert in 2013 compared to 12.8 million tonnes in 2012, an increase of 5.8 per cent.

Jungle Beach maintenance in question BY MARTINA PERRY HAIDA GWAII / The Northern View

The Skeena-Queen Charlotte Regional District (SQCRD) is hoping the province will take the maintenance of Jungle Beach off its plate. The SQCRD will be contacting the Ministry of Environment asking the agency to look after the upkeep of the popular spot. The group currently doing maintenance is no longer able to do so. “This is [an] example where good intentions at the time have now come back to haunt us,” Joan Merrick, the chief administrative - Carol Kulesha officer of the SQCRD, said at the last regional district meeting. The problem the regional district is facing with Jungle Beach is it was made the regional district’s responsibility without having an established service, which is against the Local Government Act. Jungle Beach was established as a park by the regional district in 2001, under a 10-year licence of occupation with the province. At the same time, the SQCRD entered into an agreement with a regional district committee to assume the responsibility of operating and maintaining Jungle Beach. The agreement was the group would do this through fundraising and other methods, and there would be no taxation to support its maintenance. See JUNGLE on Page B2

“Jungle Beach is used by the whole south end of the island.”

Crime severity up on Haida Gwaii BY SHAUN THOMAS HAIDA GWAII / The Northern View

The crime severity ranking on Haida Gwaii was up in 2012 compared to 2011, with RCMP detachments in both Queen Charlotte and Masset showing increases. The numbers, released by Stats Canada on Aug. 7, show the crime severity index (CSI) in Queen Charlotte rose 56 per cent compared to 2011 and

is the second highest its been in five years. However, the jump was driven by the non-violent crime severity index, which rose 80 per cent compared to 2011, while the violent crime severity index was the lowest it has been in five years. The weighted clearance rate for the detachment fell 27 per cent and is the second lowest it has been in five years, this time led by a 36 per cent drop in violent crime.

In Masset, the CSI rose 29.9 per cent from 2011 and, unlike Queen Charlotte, the number was driven by a 124 per cent increase in the violent crime severity index to put it the highest level it has been in five years while the non-violent severity index is the second lowest it has been since 2008. However, the weighted case clearance rate for the detachment rose 40 per cent from 2011 and is the highest it has been in the past five years.

B2 • Northern View • August 14, 2013

JUNGLE from Page B1 Everything had been going to plan, so in 2011 the regional district went into a 30-year licence of occupation with the province. However, the group caring for Jungle Beach has burnt out, and are now having trouble fundraising and finding volunteers to take care of the site. “The problem is there’s a group of residents that have done this for a long time, and they’re just worn out and don’t think they can do it anymore,” Merrick said. There are other options for the regional district including switching the beach to a community park and paying for maintenance through taxation, or providing the group with an annual grant. The idea of Jungle Beach no longer being a gathering spot for people isn’t being considered at this time. “Jungle Beach is used by the whole south end of the island. It’s a great tourist area, as well. I don’t think we can just give it up,” Carol Kulesha, mayor of Queen Charlotte City, said. All members of the board agreed contacting the ministry was worth a try, except Evan Putterill, the electoral area director for Sandspit, who didn’t believe the ministry would be willing to. At the meeting, the board adopted a policy requiring any future activity, work or facility undertaken or provided by or on behalf of the regional district must be done through an established service provider. Putterill opposed the policy because of a section relating to grants.

Sea otters spotted off Haida Gwaii By Martina Perry HAIDA GWAII / The Northern View

Two sea otters have been spotted in the northwest region of Haida Gwaii, an area the animals haven’t frequented for some time. The sea otters were first spotted on Langara Rocks off of Langara Island in early June by two Langara Island Lodge fishing resort employees. When the pair of otters were sighted at the rocks again, Roger Hager, another employee at the lodge, went out specifically to see them. Hager said he watched the animals for about 15 to 20 minutes. “They were keeping a close eye on us as they swam about. One would push the other down, seemingly to get a better vantage point from which to look around,” Hager said, adding they were about the same size. “At one point, one was breaking open a shellfish of sorts on a rock being carried on its chest. They wanted to keep their distance from us but didn’t seem to mind us being there.” Hager said the sea otters were also mingling with some sea lions that tend to settle on the rocks. The animals remained in the area, spotted on several occasions by a number of people at the lodge. Hager has seen them a few times since mid-June. While sightings have primarily been near Langara Rocks, Hager said the otters have also been spotted on the kelp beds along the eastern shoreline of the island. “They seem to be venturing away from the Langara Rocks to spend time in other areas,”

One of two sea otters spotted off the west coast of Haida Gwaii.

he said. Linda Nichol, a Department of Fisheries and Oceans research biologist working on sea otters and cetaceans, said the animals were once abundant around Haida Gwaii prior to the maritime fur trade, when the animals were hunted to near-extinction. Sea otters began populating areas of B.C.’s coast between in the ‘60s and ‘70s, with the population expanding since. However, the animals have still not been established off Haida Gwaii. Nichol said the visitors likely came from established populated areas in B.C. or from Alaska, and while the their presence in the area is promising it doesn’t necessarily mean a large

Dave Car / Langara Fishing Adventures

number of sea otters will be flocking to Haida Gwaii in the near future. “In the fullness of time we’ll see whether those animals stay there,” Nichol said, adding there was a sighting reported in Parry Passage in 2005. “It’s a reminder at some point the population will likely re-establish itself around Haida Gwaii.” Nichol told the Northern View when sea otters populations are expanding into new areas, usually a few males will show up in an area followed by females. The gender of the two otters visiting Langara Island isn’t known. Nichol encourages people to report sea otter sightings to contact her at (250) 756-7253.

PRPA donation supports 24-hour recycling BY MARTINA PERRY

have had a narrow time frame to process their household recyclables. The port’s contribution will help the regional district create a recycling transfer station available to the public at all hours of the day, seven days a week. Barry Pages, board chair of the SQCRD, said the port’s contribution makes the project feasible and the regional district is excited to partner with the port to further a “strong environmental legacy” for the region. “The creation of this easy-to-access recycling transfer station will be a huge benefit to the communities within the regional district. Not only will it provide more convenience and accessibility for our residents, it will also meet the increasing demand we will continue to experience in coming years,” Pages said. The recycling transfer station will be located at the front of the recycling depot property along Kaien Road and will include several large bins and adequate space for multi-vehicle parking. The area will be covered to protect users from adverse weather conditions, and lit during the evening and night.

PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

A donation by the Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) will make recycling easier and more accessible. The PRPA donated $18,000 to the SkeenaQueen Charlotte Regional District (SQCRD) to go toward the Regional Recycling Depot in the Prince Rupert Industrial Yard as part of the port’s Community Investment Fund. “Residents of Prince Rupert and the surrounding area have proven they are serious about reducing their environmental impact through recycling, but we all need flexibility to accommodate our own unique schedules,” Don Krusel, president and CEO of the port, said. “By improving this system and making it constantly accessible, the regional district will be able to further enhance the responsible, sustainable lifestyle that is championed by so many of us in the community.” The facility currently operates at limited hours throughout the week and weekends, which has meant individuals and families
