Rice expense claim highest of NDP MLAs

When it came to expenses last month, North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice had the highest bill of the 34 sitting New Democrats. In July, Rice racked up $9,283.74 in expenses. That number is $3,988 more than the next highest expense claim, which came from George Heyman of VancouverFairview. Included in the expenses were $4,387,59 in airfare - Jennifer Rice and $3,302.65 in accommodation fees. Rice said part of the reason for the high number was being new to Victoria and new on the job. “Being newly-elected and not having preestablished accommodations in Victoria further added additional costs while the legislature was in session as I stayed in hotels versus having a more permanent residence where the accommodation costs would be lower,” she explained. See RICE on Page A2

“July was an exceptional month.”

Senators propose tax on Canadian cargo Washington senators propose levy to compete with Prince Rupert

Senators from the State of Washington are introducing legislation that would strip away one of the competitive advantages Canadian ports hold over their U.S. counterparts. Presently, containers unloaded in Canada and shipped to the U.S. are free of any additional fees or levies while containers unloaded in the United States are subject to the Harbour Maintenance Tax (HMT), which is used to fund operation and maintenance of large and small ports across the country. What Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell are proposing is legislation that would abolish the HMT and replace it with a Maritime Goods Movement User Fee that would be applied

“This would level the playing field for our ports.” - Maria Cantwell to every container coming into the U.S. by truck or rail. According to Senator Cantwell, who was joined at the announcement by Port of Seattle CEO Tay Yoshitani, and Port of Tacoma CEO John Wolfe, part of the reason behind introducing the legislation next month is the success of Fairview Terminal in Prince Rupert. “Currently the HMT makes it harder for our

ports to compete with Prince Rupert to the North – or the Port of Lazaro Cardenas to the South. The threat is real. The Federal Maritime Commission found that up to 27 per cent of container volume moving through West Coast ports is at risk of diverting to Prince Rupert,” she said. “This would level the playing field for our ports and protect our jobs here in Washington ... We’re ready to hit the ground running with our bill when we get back to D.C. in September.” A Seattle Times article reported the levy would be approximately $109 per container. Should the legislation move forward, the senators expect more money would be available to maintain and improve American ports. The Prince Rupert Port Authority declined to comment on the proposed legislation.

Rice expenses much higher than other nearby MLAs RICE from Page A1 “July was an exceptional month. Being called to the legislature so soon after the election did not allow me to find a more permanent living arrangement which would have been more affordable than staying in hotels. I don’t expect the accommodation costs to be as high as they were in July as I have recently found a less-costly living arrangement.” Rice says the airfare covered travel between Prince Rupert, Vancouver and Victoria for legislature work and constituency work at Shearwater on Denny Island, and points to the high cost as part of being a rural MLA. “The MLAs who live the farthest from the legislature in Victoria tend to have the highest expenses because of the increased cost of travel,” she said. Skeena MLA Robin Austin’s expenses totaled $3,559.24 and Stikine MLA Doug Donaldson accounted for expenses totaling $4,740.21 Although the reports show Rice had the highest expenses of the opposition, she said she stands behind the party’s commitment to release these details. “I support our decision to post detailed members’ expense reports, and hope the Legislative Assembly will also support more detailed routine disclosure of travel expenses for all MLAs and cabinet ministers,” she said.

Tsimshian LNG comment period unfair, says lawyer Missing Skeena adding land caused confusion By Shaun Thomas

By Shaun Thomas

PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

The Metlakatla and Lax Kw’alaams bands may soon have control over an additional 7,091 hectares of land on the North Coast as the provincial government finalizes a settlement made nearly six years ago. In a letter to the Skeena – Queen Charlotte Regional District, the Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada outlined six parcels of land that would transfer from the Crown to the two bands as a result of a Cut-Off Claim Settlement Agreement dated Nov. 7, 2007. Two of the parcels of land, a 465-hectare piece that includes a portion of land that forms part of Finlayson Island, is to be set aside exclusively for the use and benefit of the Lax Kw’alaams Band while an eight hectare piece near the north end of Kaien Island will be set aside exclusively for the use and benefit of the Metlakatla Band. The remaining four parcels of land will be to benefit both bands and will be managed by a joint reserve management agreement. The largest parcel of land is 4,190 hectares directly north of the current Metlakatla boundary. The remaining three parcels of land include one just past Port Edward, another near the mouth of the Skeena River and one further inland. The matter came before the Skeena - Queen Charlotte Regional District on Aug. 9 for comment, and no director raised a concern.

West Coast Environmental Law and the Tbuck Suzuki Foundation are calling on the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency to reopen the public comment period for Pacific NorthWest LNG’s planner terminal on Lelu Island. In a letter sent by counsel Andrew Gage, the two groups say the fact the Skeena River was missing from the original map filed by Pacific NorthWest LNG means some impacted parties may have missed out on providing feedback. “As a result of these inaccurate notices, it may well be that individuals who might be concerned about the Skeena River may have failed to appreciate the project’s proximity to the river and failed to make comments, or to apply for participant funding, as a result. The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is not responsible for each and every map generated by a proponent. However, the agency is responsible for ensuring that the process it provides remains fair, including by ensuring the information it provides in public notices is accurate,” reads the letter.

After being alerted to the Skeena River missing from a map submitted to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency, Pacific NorthWest LNG has resubmitted the above map containing the Skeena River and the surrounding waterways.

“In this case, the agency chose to adopt the inaccurate map and to use it in its public notices on its website. As such, in our view, the agency bears the responsibility of remedying its mistake. “In our view, the agency has an obligation to invite further public input related to the draft EIS and further opportunity to apply for participant funding. If desired, this further input could be limited to input directly or indirectly related to the Skeena River (including associated environmental values), although in our view it would be simplest simply to re-open the public consultation/participant funding opportunities.” Pacific NorthWest LNG submitted a corrected map on Aug. 8, but the TBuck Suzuki Foundation noted it was

done after several public participation periods had elapsed. However, senior advisor of corporate affairs Spencer Sproule said the Skeena was certainly not left out of the filing. “Our project description makes specific reference to the Skeena River in the text of the document. The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency accepted our project description in its entirety,” he said, adding what happens with the assessment is out of the company’s hands. “We can’t speak on behalf of CEAA in regard to their procedures or practices.” The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency confirmed receipt of the letter, but declined to publicly respond.

No worries from tax proposal

R

epresentatives from the State of Washington have put together what they see as a viable solution to lowly little Prince Rupert taking away containers from the ports of Seattle and Tacoma. You see, they figure the problem is that Prince Rupert and Vancouver have an unfair advantage because Canadian ports don’t charge the Harbour Maintenance Tax that is charged on every TEU unloaded in American ports. Their solution? Take away the tax seen in the U.S. and apply a fee every container entering the country from Canada or Mexico. The senators call it “leveling the field” for U.S. ports, despite the fact that anyone with any semblance of logic can see the true Shaun Thomas intention is to punish Canadian ports to the benefit of U.S. ports. That isn’t leveling the field, that is protectionism at its best. But punishment aside, the senators seem to have this hair-brained idea that shipping companies are choosing to come to Canada, and more specifically Prince Rupert, because this way they can avoid the Harbour Maintenance Tax. It makes you wonder if they have ever spoken with people in the shipping industry or if, as it appears, this is just a way of rallying the proverbial troops to win over their support in the next election. Shippers aren’t choosing to come to Prince Rupert instead of Seattle or Tacoma because of the Harbour Maintenance Tax, they’re choosing it because it’s closer and more efficient. Not having to travel an extra day or two and expend the extra fuel is certainly a bonus, and being able to go from the terminal to Chicago in under 100 hours and labour certainty for the forseeable future only sweeten the pot. Now the million dollar question: Should Prince Rupert be worried about this pending legislation? Doubtful. Aside from the fact that Fairview Terminal has established a world-class reputation, under the rules of NAFTA, the federal government would fight any such legislation tooth and nail. And if not, they say turn about is fair play. How much does Canada import from the U.S. again?

NavAids light the way Feds must protect salmon for safer shipping

Letters to the editor

Editor: Skeena River sockeye salmon are returning in desperately low numbers this summer, causing concern among conservationists for the future of one of British Columbia’s largest and most diverse salmon runs. The run collapse triggered closures of commercial and recreational fisheries in B.C., and restricted First Nations’ food f isheries. Meanwhile, commercial fisheries in Alaska intercepted large numbers of Skeena sockeye just over the border, less than 100 kilometres from the mouth of the Skeena River. The cause of the collapse is not known and SkeenaWild Conservation Trust, Watershed Watch Salmon Society, and Raincoast Conservation Foundation called on Alaskan fishery managers to put conservation ahead of short-term commercial interests by moving their fisheries inland, out of the open areas where the B.C.-bound salmon are being caught. The Alaskans however, took little action. Commercial net fisheries in southeast Alaska catch up to 20 per cent of Skeena sockeye as they migrate through Alaska. In years of low returns their catch can be even higher. These fish are often caught as “bycatch” in fisheries targeting local Alaskan pink and

chum salmon. The Pacific Salmon Treaty, which covers fisheries on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border, does not prohibit the capture of depleted B.C. stocks in Alaskan fisheries. We are calling on Ottawa to defend Canada’s interests by doing more to protect vulnerable salmon runs from overfishing in U.S. waters. Instead of spending so much effort promoting oilsands, it would behoove the federal government to stand up for Skeena sockeye, which, if managed properly, could be a truly sustainable and renewable Canadian resource. Greg Knox, Executive Director, SkeenaWild Aaron Hill, Fisheries ecologist, Watershed Watch Misty MacDuffee, Fisheries ecologist, Raincoast Conservation Foundation

Editor: A significant aspect of NDP post-election soulsearching, following its catastrophic defeat by the forces of free enterprise, will no doubt have to be coming to terms with the need to move the party further to the centre, away from its ideological far left-wing base. While the federal NDP appears to have decided to delete references to ‘socialism’ from its guiding party preamble to make it more palatable politically and competitive electorally, merely removing ‘socialism’ as a founding principle, without jettisoning its politically outdated doctrine, will not convince Canadians that the NDP is anything but a socialist party. Shakespeare perhaps said it best in Romeo and Juliet: “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Confronted with the political reality of the concept of socialism proving itself to be an abysmal failure throughout the world, being replaced by more free enterprise, less government

and less social engineering, the question naturally arises as to whether B.C.’s NDP party will be able to “jump over its own ideological shadow” and abandon its traditional stand on the principles of democratic socialism, as defined in the provincial NDP constitutional preamble: “The New Democratic Party believes that social, economic and political progress in Canada can only be assured by the application of democratic socialist principles to government and the administration of public affairs ... including, where necessary, the extension of the principle of social ownership.” Stripped of its defining political raison d’être, however, NDP soul-searching to remain a legitimate electoral contender in the province would make it a journey of heading somewhere into the future without the benefit of a road map and without a clear sense of its destination ... always carrying the baggage of its political past.

RE:PORT

n a sunny day last October, members of the Canadian Coast Guard were hard at work with support from Wainwright Marine. They were enhancing one of the most critical pieces of marine safety infrastructure in Prince Rupert’s harbour. For responsible mariners, some of the most important tools for safe travel are navigational aids. Often called NavAids, the term encompasses all devices and systems that help mariners determine their position and course, warn of dangers and obstructions, and mark preferred routes. These include visual aids like buoys and beacons, aural aids like bells and whistles that are triggered in low-visibility conditions, and electronic aids that include radar beacons and the Differential Global Positioning System. The most familiar of these are the floating port hand (green) and starboard hand (red) buoys, known as lateral buoys, that mark the sides of a safe navigation channel. There are in fact over a dozen unique floating NavAids used in Canada’s bouyage system, each with their own identifying features that professional mariners must be able to recognize and distinguish. Also visible in Prince Rupert’s harbour are illuminated fixed aids, structures equipped with lights and located at prominent sites to assist mariners in fixing their position. John Green has 32 years of marine experience in Prince Rupert, and is the Canadian Coast Guard’s Aids to Navigation Foreman at the Seal Cove base. Last year, John and his local CCG colleagues made improvements to visual NavAids in Porpoise Channel as part of a coast-wide rebuild. This project began in 2004 with a survey of all navigational sites along Canada’s Pacific coast, and resulted in a scheme used to assess which aids will be replaced first. The plan examines the level of service required for each aid and also requests input from user groups. Coast Guard members then design a structure and install the equipment to each site’s specifications. For example, portions of existing fixed aids constructed from wood were replaced with aluminum. The structures now include more reflective surfaces and stable towers, enhancing safety. In addition to deterioration, there were also upgrades to the visibility of the lighted NavAids located at Parizeau Point, Barrett Point and McIntosh Rock. The sites now all have brighter lights to help ships navigate in and out of the harbour, which required new technology. Throughout his career, John has seen the technology change dramatically. “Once upon a time we used acetylene gas to light NavAids. Then we moved to dry pack batteries, and now we’ve gone to solar-based systems with battery support. A major advantage now is that instead of servicing these aids each and every year to replace batteries, we’ve managed to reduce our maintenance trips to once every four years for servicing.” Marine user groups like the Prince Rupert Port Authority occasionally identify a need for a new beacon or marker to improve harbour safety, and work with CCG to select an appropriate location. Once a site is selected, the user group provides funding to CCG, who in turn will design, build and service the new NavAid. A private-public partnership such as this is currently underway for a new shore marker at Philips Point, which will be useful for all vessels traveling in and out of Prince Rupert’s inner harbour.

Jobless rate on the decline By Rod Link

Accident

PRINCE RUPERT / Terrace Standard

The northwest’s jobless rate continues to decline, a reflection of increasing regional economic activity. Statistics Canada figures for July indicate there were 41,000 people working in the area from the North Coast to just this side of Vanderhoof, an increase of 600 over June. That was sufficient to drop the jobless rate to six per cent, lower than June’s 6.7 per cent and May’s 7.7 per cent. And as the number of people working edges upwards, the number of unemployed has also dropped – from 3,300 in May to 2,900 in June to 2,600 in July. July’s jobless rate of 6 per cent is also a marked improvement from the 11.9 per cent for July 2012. July 2012’s statistics show there were 38,400 people working then with 5,200 people saying they were unemployed. And, in comparison to recent years when the northwest had the highest jobless rate among regions in BC, that’s no longer the case. Three regions – the Thompson-Okanagan with 6.6 per cent, the Lower Mainland with 6.8 per cent and Vancouver Island with 6.4 per cent – had higher rates in July than did the northwest. The northwest even did better than the provincial average of 6.6 per cent for July. The Kootenays with 5.5 per cent, the Cariboo with 5.9 per cent and the northeast with 4.5 per cent topped the northwest. The jobless rate is not the number of people collecting Employment Insurance. It is based on interviews of people from just this side of Vanderhoof who consider themselves part of the workforce whether they are employed or not.

Sensible BC launches Rupert campaign By Martina Perry PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

Sensible BC has high hopes of decriminalizing marijuana possession, and wants pro-pot Rupertites to help. Dana Larsen, director of Sensible BC, said made a stop in Prince Rupert last Tuesday, with about a dozen Rupertites attending the event. Larsen said people in Prince Rupert were excited about getting involved, with nearly everyone in attendance registering to collect signatures. “Our campaign is to make some sensible first steps in British Columbia. We recognize that B.C. cannot legalize the cultivation and sale of marijuana without some changes to federal law. What we can do as a province is

decriminalize possession by telling the police to stop spending any time or resources on searching or arresting anybody for marijuana possession. That’s a sensible first step in the right direction,” he said. “Ultimately, our goal is to repeal the marijuana prohibition across Canada, but in British Columbia we can start that process and make a very strong both symbolic and practical statement by decriminalizing marijuana possession.” Since Elections BC gave approval in principal for the law decriminalizing marijuana, Larsen began another province-wide tour to promote the Sensible BC campaign while encouraging supporters to assist by registering as canvassers. If canvassers can collect 400,000

signatures from across the province between September and November, there will be a referendum to decriminalize marijuana possession in 2014. Ten per cent of registered voters in every riding must sign the petition. Larsen said he’s pleased with how the process is going so far, with about 1,000 canvassers being registered so far. The campaign hopes to have 6,000 by Sept. 9, when the petition is underway. People must be registered as a canvasser with Elections BC to collect signatures. Larsen said forms to sign up are available on the campaign’s website, or can be picked up at Homesteader New and Used in Prince Rupert. Supporters will also be able to sign the petition at the business when the time comes.

The Skeena — Queen Charlotte Regional District (SQCRD) wants the government to do more to ensure driving between Prince Rupert and Terrace is safe this winter. The SQCRD had Lori Wiedeman, Skeena District Manager for the Ministry of Transportation, come to its meeting in Masset in June to discuss a number of concerns. One of the board’s concerns was the state of Highway 16 during the winter, with the board feeling there is a clear line between the areas serviced by two maintenance contractors, O’Brien Road and Bridge Maintenance and Nechako Northcoast Construction. The regional district’s concerns laid with Nechako Northcoast Construction, which is responsible for maintaining the highway from Kasiks to Terrace. “I’m curious what that contract actually looks like. Usually [contracts] are fairly standardized in terms of requirements, so I’d be curious to see if there is any differentiation and if not then why there’s such a differentiation in service,” Des Nobles, representative of Dodge Cove, said. Wiedeman responded to concerns, stating “the maintenance contractors will contact each other if they notice a need in the other service area”, and the ministry would

discuss maintenance strategies with contractors before the winter season. However, board members felt the issue isn’t being properly addressed by the ministry and is an ongoing concern with the winter months approaching. The regional district will be sending the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure another letter on the subject, and will also try to set up a meeting with the ministry at the UBCM. The District of Port Edward raised its concerns with Nechako Northcoast Construction’s winter maintenance to the Ministry of Transportation, and to the premier in January of 2012. Port Edward plans to bring the topic to the UBCM this year. “It’s big on our priority list to get that highway up to standard,” Dan Franzen, Port Edward’s representative, said during the meeting. Nechako Northcoast said they had not received any complaints from the regional district, but encouraged them to contatct the company directly with concerns.

Snowbirds give cadets a glimpse into the forces Youth spend an afternoon on Digby By Martina Perry PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

Hard work pays off. That’s the message members of the Canadian Forces Snowbirds were trying to inject into the minds of Prince Rupert sea cadets and Terrace air cadets during a face-to-face meeting before their aerobatic performance last Wednesday. “We all aim to instill a sense that whatever you want to do in life is achievable with a lot of hard work and a little bit of luck. There’s guys on the team that have wanted to be Snowbirds since they were the age of these cadets, or younger. It took them 20 years but they got there,” Capt. Thomas Edelson, squadron public affairs officer, said. “You should always try to do what you want to do.” Snowbirds’ pilots Capt. Brent Handy and Capt. Steve MacDonald, and plane technicians Cpl. Tiffany Burley and Cpl. Andrew Poulin spoke to cadets about their background and how they became part of the Snowbirds’ team. They also gave cadets a tour and lesson on the CT-114 Tutor jet trainer used in performances. Cadets got to see first hand how the aircraft operate, its safety devices, storage compartments, ejection methods and more. Prince Rupert’s Daelan Calder, a 14year old petty officer second class from the Captain Cook Sea Cadets, said his favourite part of the event was being inside of the jet. “It was a wonderful experience to be shown all about the parts of the airplane and how it worked. It was amazing,” Calder, who has been a cadet for three years, said. Sixteen-year-old Alycia Iuliano, a flight sergeant in the 737 (Unicorn) Squadron Air Cadets in Terrace, said it was interesting to learn about the small amount of items pilots and technicians carry in the training jets, which includes

candy. Iuliano, a fourth year cadet, said the most exciting part of the meeting was getting to talk to members of the Snowbirds. “I’ve always wanted to meet them face-to-face. I thought it was really awesome. It was a life-changing experience,” she said. Edelson said it’s hard getting use to being treated like a celebrity by Canadians. “Every person on the team is a very humble person. There’s a lot of humility involved with the team, but we often get treated like rockstars. That takes a little getting use to,” he said. Prince Rupert sea cadet Rebecca Ryan, a 16-year old petty officer second class who has been a cadet for three years, said she was also excited to meet the Snowbirds and enjoyed learning about the pilot’s and technician’s background. “It was cool how they had a history in the cadets too, so we could relate with

them,” she said. Ryan said the most important thing she learned during the tour was advice Capt. Handy told cadets. “His advice was to hang out with people who encourage you to do things and go after what you want, and not discourage you,” she said. The main message the Snowbirds wanted sea and air cadets to see was never giving up on your dreams, but Edelson said he also hopes the meeting made cadets think about what they want to do with their lives, and what they need to do to get there.

“It doesn’t matter if you want to join the Canadian Armed Forces, or become a Snowbirds pilot, or become a doctor, a welder, or whatever it is. The thing we try to instil is to pursue excellence. Work hard, treat your body and brain well ... work hard for your goals,” he said. The Canadian Forces Snowbirds try to add a community relations component in each community they perform in, whether it be meeting with cadets like they did in Prince Rupert, or going into schools, hospitals, legions and more.

For 40 minutes on Aug. 14, Prince Rupert’s eyes were on the skies as the Canadian Forces Snowbirds brought their precision flying to the North Coast. Mixing solo flights with seven and nine-plane formations, the Snowbirds put on a show that included tributes to the history of the Canadian forces, the history of the Snowbirds and honoured the men and women who lost their life serving the country. Mariner’s Park, Rotary Waterfront Park and the top parking lot of the Rupert Square Mall were all packed with people, who have been waiting for the Snowbirds return since weather forced the cancellation of the show in August, 2011.

Junior golf on the decline Lack of interest cancels Jubilee

HITTING THE PITCH

BY SHAUN THOMAS PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

The 2013 Prince Rupert Junior Jubilee champion is: nobody. The annual tournament that includes the best young golfers from around the Northwest was scheduled to hit the links on Aug. 10 and 11, but had to be cancelled due to a lack of - Dave Tough interest. To be more specific, there were no entries into the tournament. “This is the first time we have had no interest and no entries from other towns ... and from our own youth program we would have a tough time getting more than a handful of players,” said course pro Moe Hays, noting youth golf is in somewhat of a slump across North America. “I don’t know why. I could give you the same answer as everyone, which is kids aren’t leaving the house these days, but that is pretty negative. I like to think it is because they are out doing other things – mountain biking is popular these days, there were families out kayaking and a lot of the social gaming and gathering sites are busy.” Acting Prince Rupert Golf Club president Dave Tough also noted the problem extends well beyond Prince Rupert, and said it worrisome for today’s golfers. “It is concerning for everyone in the golf course because that is the future of the game ... it would be in our best interest to resolve the question of how to attract young people to the course. We’ve tried a number of different things, like offering special rates and having special nights for youth, but we have not had a lot of results,” he said. “I think another problem is that there is no high school program as there was previously. In the past, there were some teachers that took the kids under their wing and led them through a golf program, and there was a golf team as well, but those teachers have moved on or retired.” Last year’s tournament included golfers from Prince Rupert, Smithers, Terrace and Kitimat and was won by Prince Rupert’s Sten Sundin.

“It is concerning for everyone in the golf course.”

This year, the season will begin with two games in the friendly confines of the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre arena.

The eccentric writer and director made the switch to a solo stand-up comedy routine/rant, also providing a solo musical performance during one show, with Tristen Wybou also performing later in the week. Huddlestone provides tips for retail employees throughout the performance, including how to identify an angry customer, and don’t express your love for a married co-worker. The writer also shares some hilarious stories about customers who don’t understand coupons, a drug addicts grocery list and awkward conversations with returning shoppers.

Set up like a sitcom, the first episode of Digby Towers revolves around the apartment buildings’ wacky tenants. Apartment building manager Randy (Smook), seeks to please his stuck-up wife Pricilla (Leah Jowe) by getting long-time agoraphobic tenant Dong (Jeff Bill) evicted from the building so the couple can take the space for themselves. After being told he must find a roommate, Dong begins auditioning potential new roomies and BFFs. After witnessing scientist Herman’s (Michael Gurney) spoken-word rendition of “Single Ladies”, Dong knows he has found the right person. While the two begin to bond, Randy and Pricilla decide the easiest way to get the two evicted from Digby Towers is to prove they are “conjugulating”, a creative way of referring to love-making, which is against one of the building’s bylaws.

Charles (Huddlestone) is a mentally ill writer who has locked himself up in a messy room of the Rain Motel with only a bottle of whiskey, his writing materials and his muse, Clarice (Tristen Wybou). Charles and Clarice discuss their past together, but have a hard time keeping the conversation friendly or sane. As the shaky, stuttering writer recalls the pair’s history with his former muse, the two begin to get more and more poetic with their language. Charles eventually is left to wonder whether Clarice is actually present in the motel room, or if his hallucinations are simply making him believe she is.

D.N. Gispudwada Contracting Ltd. Don had been a commercial fisherman for years. He even dabbled in the trades for a while, but when the Kitkatla Band council approached him to become his own Owner Operator, he jumped at the idea. The C.I.C Rock Truck Initiative Project was designed to turn selected community members into their very own business owners through Heavy Equipment Training. Don received training to become a certified operator, and then purchased his very own Rock Truck. And Don’s not taking this opportunity lightly. “There are so many people in the background that helped with the process. My Plan now is to expand the business and get another truck.” There’s more to the Initiative than just being an Owner Operator though. Don is currently working on the Ridley Island Road Rail Utility Corridor, a contract secured by his band through Impact Benefit Agreements with the PR Port Authority. It will be these sorts of large scale expansion/projects and important partnerships that will allow Don to maintain a sustainable future for himself and grow his business. Thanks to financing from Community Futures, as well as help from Coast Industrial Construction, Don is now set to grow his business, and inspire others from the community and Northern BC. “What we’re doing has never been done before! We’re the ones that set the bar. These other communities were shocked when they heard. They’re happy for us. It’s unreal that we’re finally here.” Says Don.

A middle-aged man (James McNish) decides to switch-up his regular morning routine by taking another bus. While attempting to read his newspaper, the man is approached first by an old lady (Anne McNish) and then by a girl (Janelle Rector) who he desperately wishes would leave him alone. After escaping both of the ladies, the man believes he has finally found a peaceful bus stop to read his paper at, when a young, attractive lady (Angelica Jesser) approaches him with friendly conversation. After initially trying to ignore the young women, the man is duped into believing his fantasies are reality, and finds himself clothes-less at the bus stop when he returns to reality, with a bus quickly making its way to the stop.

Two crows, Beak (Treena Decker) and Pupil (Jasper Nolos), tell a tale of Angela Downer (Heather McCrae), a lost soul searching for some hope in her life, struggling with the memory of her past lover who drowned at a rave. Angela goes to a rave one evening, and takes home Pump (Chrys Thompson), who quickly falls for Angela. Around the same time Angela begins comforting the neighbour’s dog Les (Kris Scott), who is left outside by himself to brave the outdoors in all weather conditions. The two begin warming her cold soul, to the jealously of her cat Freak (Chelsea Jesser). After kicking both Freak and Pump out of her apartment, Angela decides to help Les escape from his neglectful owners. Beak and Pupil fuel the flame, with Freak’s jealously overtaking Les.

The play told the tale of a baker with a history of creating monsterous gingerbread men that terrorize the town. When told he is forbidden from baking another gingerbread man, he gets around it by baking a girl cookie. But the girl meets the infamous gingerbread man.

Thank you to everyone who brought their “work” for all to see, thank you Margit and Susan for the flowers, and thank you for all the desserts that were donated. As I mentioned on Tuesday, baking is an art, and so is gardening. Thanks for all the help Mona, Linda, Jenny, May, Mary, and Sharon, much appreciated. I would just like to add that Anne Whittles African Violet was a huge hit, it measured a foot in diameter and was so perfect that some people still believe it’s a fake.

Bartel’s Hero Holiday Life in the Dominican Republic BY MARTINA PERRY PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

For some, including Prince Rupert’s Brianne Bartel, it takes seeing how little some have to realize how much you do. Bartel recently returned to Prince Rupert after spending a year in France. Prior to her French exchange, Bartel got to see how other, less-fortunate people live during a humanitarian trip to Dominican Republic to take part in Live Different’s Hero Holiday in July of 2012. Over a year has passed, but Bartel still hasn’t forgotten the important lessons she learned overseas. The project allows Canadian youth to help families living in poverty build a home, while also spending time with children of the villages and getting a hands on experience of what it’s like to live in poverty. Over the course of the trip, Hero Holiday participants split into teams to build houses for six families, along with the assistance of a construction team. The framework of the houses were laid out, with volunteers helping make concrete by hand, layering bricks to form the structure, mud the walls and more. While it was hard labour, Bartel said she never heard any of the youth complaining about the amount of work they were doing each day. “The fact that our hard work, and putting in our energy was changing families lives [felt] incredible,” she said. Bartel’s group was building a home from a mother, Gladis, son Magill, daughters Ray and Solidid and granddaughter Esmily, and on the final day of the Hero Holiday the group was able to give the family keys to their new home. Hero Holiday groups would also spend time going into the village’s school, which Live Different helped construct, to play with the kids. Bartel said the children were excited to spend time with volunteers, fighting to hold Canadian’s hands when they first arrived. A shy little girl named Nicole especially took a liking to Bartel, after she approached the young girl

“This is their life and how they afford to live.” - Brianne Bartel who was keeping to herself. While there were many who touched Bartel during her time overseas, she said her experience with one boy was the most eye-opening for her. Hero Holiday participants are taken on an “in their shoes” work experience trip, with Canadians assisting Domican and Haitian people work at the garbage dump collecting plastic items to be returned for money. “This is their life and how they afford to live,” Bartel said. With work gloves and garbage bag in hand, Bartel met her work experience partner Kanas, a teenage boy from Haiti. Bartel wanted to break the ice with Kanas but wasn’t sure how without speaking the same language. “I’m super into sports, so I thought I’d see if he was into sports,” she said. Bartel began making motions mimicking various sports, with no luck. Finally, Bartel pretended to play baseball, and Kanas’ face lit up as he grabbed her by the wrist and ran with her to his friend. Kanas had Bartel do the motion again, and the two boys excitedly reacted to the pleasure of Bartel. Later, Kanas came across a bed post in the rubbish, which gave Bartel an idea. “I picked up a tin can and gave it to him, and wound up to hit it like a baseball,” she said, which prompted the two to play with the items together, laughing the whole time. Bartel and Kanas bonded again, when Kanas began singing the chorus of Justin Beiber’s Baby later in the day. Bartel was surprised to hear him sing the song, and despite not usually singing in public she began belting the song in the garbage dump. “When you go out of your comfort zone, that’s where the high in life is,” she said. “He kept saying I was ‘loco’.” See BARTEL on Page A16

SENIORS ART Martina Perry / The Northern View

At Your Service

Vi Schaeffer and Marie Beillard were some of about 60 people who visited the Seniors Centre on Aug. 13 for the centre’s first art showing. Between 25 and 30 centre members contributed art toward the show that ranged from quilts, to painted pieces.

BARTEL from Page A15 Throughout the day, the two would also entertain each other by arm wrestling, and showing each other tricks with a string from an old potato sack. Bartel decided to keep the string, and made a bracelet out of it, which she wears to this day. When the trip was nearing its end, Bartel was told Kanas was 13 years old, and had been working in the dump since he was three. “My heart shattered because I realized he was a year younger than my brother.” When it was time to go, it was difficult for Bartel to hold back her emotions. “I thought ‘how could I leave you here?’. I’m going back to my buffet lunch at the resort, and I’m going to go shower because to me this is a

Bartel was the last person back on the bus, taking her time saying goodbye to Kanas. “I was finally about to get in the truck when I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turn around, and he has his hand out with a red bracelet on it... I felt like I should be giving him things,” she said. The generosity of the people she met while on her humanitarian trip was something that really stood out to Bartel, as well as their happiness. “When I looked at what they have, and how happy they are [it made me think about the level of importance of some things] ... so many people are unhappy with their lives because they’re not successful enough, or they don’t have enough money. People are unhappy for materialist reasons,” she said. But she was also generous with people she met in Dominican Republic. Through fundraising and

Bartel is planning to go on the Live Different internship program in 2015, which would be a month-long humanitarian trip where she would have a leadership role.

100 new jobs in construction over the 16-year mine life. It was approved and permitted this month in an unusually quick turnaround time. Anglo American aims to boost production of northeast metallurgical coal, used in steel making, from 1.5 to at least 2.5 million tonnes annually. The coking coal would be hauled by rail to Prince Rupert for export. Provincial officials were on hand to count the project as a step toward Victoria’s Jobs Plan goal of opening several new mines and adding thousands of jobs by 2015.

Leaders tour Ft. McMurray Pages, Merrick guests of Enbridge BY ROD LINK FORT MCMURRAY / Black Press

More than 20 northern residents spent Aug. 15 touring various Fort McMurray area oilsands developments courtesy of Enbridge. The company decided such a tour was in order after facing a number of questions about the origin of the crude oil it hopes to pump for customers of its planned Northern Gateway pipeline from Alberta to a marine terminal at Kitimat, said company official Ivan Giesbrecht. “We thought it would be a lot easier to show them rather than to simply tell them,” said Giesbrecht. Included in the group was Skeena – Queen Charlotte Regional District chair Barry Pages and CAO Joanne Merrick. Acting Mayor Judy Carlick-Peason had been invited but was unable to attend. Others from the northwest included Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce executive director Carol Fielding, Terrace Economic Development Authority economic development officer Evan van Dyk, Alex Pietrella, the executive director of the KitimatTerrace Industrial Development Society, Burns Lake Mayor Luke Strimbold and

“We thought it would be a lot easier to show them than to simply tell them.” - Ivan Giesbrecht Smithers resident Josette Weir, who has not only been a consistent critic of the Enbridge Northern Gateway plan but also of the federal environmental review of the project. “The group includes civic leaders and business people,” said Giesbrecht. “The group has been quite impressed at the size and scope of the operation here.” One tour stop took in the Suncor development, a client of Enbridge’s. The group examined a tailings pond which has now been reclaimed and replanted, said Giesbrecht. Enbridge has been hosting tours of several locations considered key in its efforts to seek approval for its Northern Gateway pipeline. The location list includes areas of Michigan which were affected when an Enbridge pipeline broke in 2010, spilling oil into the Kalamazoo River. The company has spent close to $800 million to clean up the spill and to cover other expenses.

Port Clements planning for centennial BY MARTINA PERRY PORT CLEMENTS / The Northern View

The more minds organizing, the bigger the results. That’s what the Village of Port Clement’s chief administrative officer, Kim Mushynsky, believes will help make the community’s 100- Kim Mushynsky year celebration as enjoyable as possible The Village of Port Clements is currently trying to organize a Centennial Committee, a group that will help organize activities for the village’s centennial year in 2014 and is looking for help. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime event ... it’s something special, and a major milestone for our community,” said Mushynsky. “We want it to be fun, and what I might think is fun might not be what someone else thinks is. The more opinions we have, the better we can ensure what is planned appeals to a large number of people and really turns out to be the fun we hoped for it to be.” The original plan was to conjoin the community’s annual Canada Day event and the centennial celebration, increasing the usual number of activities. “We’ll definitely be doing something [bigger] for Canada Day ... I no longer think that’s going to be the only thing we do,” Mushynsky said, adding there’s likely to be a number of centennial events throughout the year. The historical society is researching some historical moments of the Village of Port Clements, with the group planning activities around events of interest to the members. See PORT on Page B2

Haida and non-Haida alike came together on Aug. 15 to raise the first totem pole in Gwaii Haanas in more than 130 years.

Pole raising a historic day for Haida Hundreds gather at Windy Bay BY SHAUN THOMAS HAIDA GWAII / The Northern View

The beach at Windy Bay on Lyell Island was packed on the afternoon of Aug. 15 to witness the first totem pole raising in Gwaii Haanas in more than a century. The ceremony that proceeded the raising of the 42-foot Gwaii Haanas Legacy Pole began shortly after 1 p.m. as the sounds of drumming and song filled the air and Chiefs welcomed canoes to the site, followed briefly by

“It is a great day to be Haida.” - President Peter Lantin speeches by on-site dignitaries. Both Archipelago Management Board (AMB) representative Ernie Gladstone and Haida Nation President Peter Lantin noted this historic event was

owed to the Haida who ensured Gwaii Haanas was protected from development. “All of us here are excited to be here and help raise the Gwaii Haanas Legacy Pole, but I think we are also here to honour the people who were standing on Lyell Island back in 1985 who made Gwaii Haanas what it is today. We are also here to recognize 20 years of the Gwaii Haanas agreement ... 20 years later, even today, it is referred to as an agreement ahead of its time,” said Ernie Gladstone of the AMB. See TOTEM on Page B2

PORT from Page B1 Mushynsky said there are plenty of possibilities for the celebration, depending on the volunteers who join the committee. “We want younger people with ideas, we want seniors because it’s a centennial, we want people with historical interests, and anybody with interests in specific buildings ... we want to make sure we have a good crosssection of view points from the community and surrounding area so that we make sure we’re inclusive in what our plans are,” Mushynsky said. By mid-September, there will be a more concrete view of what the committee will do and how many people are needed. In the meantime, anyone interested in becoming part of the Centennial Committee is encouraged to call (250) 557-4295.

TOTEM from Page B1 “We all stand here today because of everyone who stood the line on Lyell, here on these lands. And for that the Haida Nation and all of Canada is grateful,” said Lantin. As well as acknowledging the past, both Lantin and Gladstone spoke of the significance of raising the first totem pole in Gwaii Haanas in over 130 years and what it means to the future of Haida Gwaii. “It’s a great day to be Haida ... we will ensure that Haida Nation’s values are the test by which decisions are made on this land and in these waters and I am sure we will be celebrating many more successes in the years ahead,” said Lantin. “We’re ensuring that Haida culture continues here in Gwaii Haanas. We know that there are several other poles ... but those poles aren’t going to last forever. They are going to return to the ground where they belong and it is important that we begin the process of reviving totem poles in Gwaii Haanas,” added Gladstone. Following speeches, the poles were blessed as per Haida tradition, and those in attendance were invited to make an offering to the pole by depositing something in the hole where the pole was to be placed. Everyone on the beach, Haida and non-Haida alike,

N O R T H W E S T

Gwaii Haanas.” - Ernie Gladstone came together to raise the pole using nothing but ropes and large wooden poles as was used in the past. When the pole was fully erect, the crowd burst out into song and dance in celebration. The pole, carved by Jaalen Edenshaw and assistants Gwaii Edenshaw and Tyler York, features the interconnections between the land, sea and people and was inspired by all of those who take care of Gwaii Haanas: Haida Gwaii Watchmen, Gwaii Haanas staff, Archipelago Management Board members, visitors, researchers and more. Along with Raven, Eagle, Sculpin, Grizzly Bear and more. Jaalen also included SacredOne-Standing-and-Moving, the supernatural being responsible for earthquakes. This figure honours the impact the 7.7 magnitude Oct. 2012 earthquake had on Hotspring Island, a place of great cultural importance to the Haida Nation.

Green leader Port Authority supports the arts up the steps down Lighting Tom Rooney

BY JEFF NAGEL

BY MARTINA PERRY

VICTORIA / Black Press

PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

B.C. Green Party leader Jane Sterk is quitting politics. Sterk led the party to the breakthrough election of its first B.C. MLA – high profile climate scientist Dr. Andrew Weaver – in the Victoria constituency of Oak Bay-Gordon Head. But Weaver’s win came thanks to a concentrated campaign – Greens running elsewhere in B.C. didn’t come close to victory in the May provincial election. The party got 146,000 votes or 8.1 per cent of the popular vote. Sterk announced her decision Tuesday on Twitter, saying she will resign Aug. 24 at the B.C. Green Party annual general meeting. “Had a good run, at best b4 date, want new adventures,” Sterk tweeted. It’s not yet clear if Weaver will seek the party’s leadership, but Sterk told CKNW she hopes he puts his name forward in the coming leadership race. Sterk, 66, was an Esquimalt councillor before becoming B.C. Green Party leader in 2007, replacing Adriane Carr. She fell short of winning a Green seat in the 2005, 2009 and 2013 provincial elections and the federal election of 2004. Sterk ran this spring against Carole James in the former NDP leader’s Victoria-Beacon Hill riding.

The Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) is helping to light up the Prince Rupert art scene. The Harbour Theatre Society is the most recent recipient of the port’s Community Investment Fund, giving Prince Rupert actors and theatre technicians new opportunities to practice their craft. The society, which is Prince Rupert’s lone theatre company, is in the process of upgrading its theatrical lighting at the Tom Rooney Playhouse. The port is contributing $5,000 toward the $10,000 project. The remainder of the cost will be raised by the society through event admissions, facility rental and government grants. “Prince Rupert is home to a flourishing arts community, and by supporting our performing artists we are contributing to their individual growth and ensuring our community can continue to enjoy lively entertainment,” Don Krusel, president and CEO of the Prince Rupert Port Authority, said. “This generous contribution from the port authority will dramatically improve the unique cultural and artistic experience Harbour Theatre Society

cultivates in the community,” James McNish, president of the Harbour Theatre Society, said. The former lighting system wasn’t up to today’s theatre industry standards, and required extensive training and technical expertise to operate. The society only has a few trained volunteers to work the equipment, so expanding the production schedule for local performances proved difficult. The new lighting system is easier to operate, and the skills required to run it are compatible with the system at the Lester Centre of the Arts, where some of the society’s productions are shown, and is consistent with stagecraft

courses at Charles Hays Secondary School. Ken Veldman, director of public affairs for the PRPA, said there were many reasons the port decided to name Harbour Theatre Society as the most recent recipient. “The arts are a big part of what makes Prince Rupert what it is. The Harbour Theatre Society is a real grassroots embodiment of that,” Veldman said. “They’ve got a very dedicated group of volunteers ... they work with all ages in the community. The project they brought forward was a really great fit for us for what we are trying to achieve with the investment fund.”
