Industrial park deal struck By Josh Massey THE CITY of Terrace has found a first customer for its Skeena Industrial Park located just south of the Northwest Regional Airport. Global Dewatering Ltd. and the city have a tentative deal worth $250,000 for the former to buy 4.384 hectares of uncleared land located on the north side of the access road leading into the property from Hwy37. Global Dewatering specializes in the removing of groundwater to

make industrial sites drier. The company has been working on Rio Tinto Alcan’s smelter modernization project in Kitimat and has its eye on the northwest’s industrial potential, says company president Bob Cartwright. “We think it’s a good position to be in Terrace in that anything that has to go through to Kitimat or Prince Rupert has to go through Terrace. We think it’s a good strategic location.” “Anything that requires groundwater dewatering,” Cartwright said

of his company’s expertise. “Just for localized excavation and buildings and that sort of thing. We have systems that will lower the groundwater table to enable a dry excavation.” Cartwright wants to begin using the Skeena Industrial Park site in September for equipment storage and then eventually build a 4,000 square foot warehouse in the next few years as well as a fenced lot. The company first looked for land in Kitimat but then settled on the Skeena Industrial Park because

of cost, said Cartwright. “The price point in Kitimat was not very favourable, let’s put it that way. They are asking a lot of money in Kitimat,” he said. Originally formed in Kelowna two and a half years ago, Global Dewatering has so far only done work on the Kitimat smelter modernization project. To date they have done this work for a larger company named IDL which is the prime contractor for the earthworks component on the smelter project.

“Global Dewatering only employs half a dozen people now but we piggyback with IDL projects and do stuff with them and they employ probably 500 or so all over. We would jointly occupy the site,” said Cartwright The purchase of this city-owned land south of Terrace will mean increased property tax in municipal coffers, and mayor David Pernarowski said he is excited about closing this particular deal as soon as possible.

City shakes up its giving By Josh Massey COMMUNITY groups used to receiving financial assistance from the city may find themselves out of luck should city council change the way tax exemptions and grants are handled. Council members are specifically looking at whether groups that bring in their own revenue through various methods should also continue to qualify for city grants and tax exemptions. The topic was discussed at an Aug. 13 committee of the whole meeting aimed at policy changes later this year. Tax exemption applications need to be made by Aug. 31 and the deadline for a grant application is Oct. 15. The list of community organizations that qualify for grants remains largely unchanged year to year, and council also examined the merits of a system that favours previous recipients. “I have some concern about complacency,” said councillor Marylin Davies during the discussion. “We bend over backward to get the information,” she continued, falling short of actually naming community organizations who challenge council with “late and incomplete applications.” Councillor Stacey Tyers also spoke out on the issue, wondering if the city might be “doing a disservice to those organizations that are just starting” by using previous qualification as the benchmark each year to get on the selection list. Mayor David Pernarowski said that he wants to see a separate body take care of the application process in the future, most likely the Terrace Community Foundation. The city has been gradually building up the interest-paying capital base of this foundation since it formed in 2011. As well, the city’s community forest has also stepped into the grant picture to make contributions from its profits to community groups.

Fort Mac visited MORE THAN 20 northern residents spent a day last week 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, says 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 Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce executive director Carol Fielding, Terrace Economic Development Authority economic development officer Evan van Dyk and Alex Pietrella, the executive director of the Kitimat-Terrace Industrial Development Society. It also included 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. Burns Lake mayor Luke Strimbold was another participant as was Barry Pages, the chair of the Skeena – Queen Charlotte Regional District. “The group has been quite impressed at the size and scope of the operation here,” said Giesbrecht. 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.

Land buyer found owned YaoRun Wood Company Ltd. were working on a deal for land at the park until the latter decided instead to lease another city-owned property, the former Skeena Cellulose/Terrace Lumber Company log yard on Keith Ave. And in 2009, when a number of companies became interested in using the northwest’s forests to manufacture various types of bio-fuel, the city signed a memorandum of understanding with Calgary-based GV Energy that might have brought on a land purchase. But that agreement ran out and was never renewed.

Local backing tour for medical marijuana A TERRACE man has organized a province-wide tour of a medical marijuana advocate. Travelling in a borrowed motorhome, Barry Prince is taking Nova Scotian Rick Simpson on a journey beginning today in Nanaimo and ending Sept. 6 here in Terrace. “That’s 4,500 kilometres in 14 days,” says Prince of a schedule covering Vancouver Island, the lower mainland, the Okanagan and east to the Kootenays. It’s something Prince says he would never have imagined doing even six months ago. But then, thanks to the internet, Prince has become a believer in the medicinal use of marijuana and its various extracts. “This has nothing to do with legalization although I’m in favour of it. This is about scientific studies into the beneficial effects of marijuana,” says Prince. “You type that into Google and you’ll come up with 1.5 million sites.” “The system is failing us. The medical system is failing us. It’s not working. All

Barry Prince they want to do is give you prescription drugs. Drug interactions are the biggest killer in North America.” Advocates of medical marijuana and its derivative tout its abilities on a number of fronts ranging from diet to cancer. Prince describes Simpson, 63, as “one of the leaders of the world medical marijuana movement and a cool old man.” Prince decided to invite Simpson to B.C. after listening to him via internet radio broadcasts and Skype conversations. What Simpson had first

thought would be a relaxing visit to the West Coast turned into a list of appearances once word got out of his visit, said Prince. He’s so far financing Simpson’s appearances by himself. Proceeds beyond expenses, continued Prince, will be used to establish a compassion club society in Spain. That country, Prince continued, is open to the idea of compassion clubs, the phrase used by medical marijuana advocates to describe groups set up to promote the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. In addition to Simpson, Skeena NDP MLA Robin Austin is scheduled to speak at the event in Terrace which is being held at the REM Lee Theatre. In the spring, Austin came out in favour of regulated marijuana sales. In the meantime, lower mainland marijuana activist Dana Larsen, seeking to hold a province-wide referendum to decriminalize marijuana possession, was in the northwest this past week lining up supporters for his campaign.

Refinery needs Canadian money B.C. businessman David Black has been forced to seek Canadian lenders to build his proposed oil refinery near Kitimat at the insistence of the Chinese bank that would act has the main financier. The Industrial and Commercial Bank of China declined to fully finance the $25-billion project, Black said, sending him to find a quarter of the required money within Canada. “It really came down to the fact that they wanted some skin in the game out of Canada and they would put 75 per cent of the money up for the refinery,” he said. Black has billed the project, announced in Aug. 2012, as a way to create thousands of jobs in B.C. refining Alberta crude oil while ensuring diluted bitumen isn’t shipped in tankers, eliminating one of the biggest objections to construction of the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline that could supply the crude. Black is advancing the project through his firm Kitimat Clean Ltd., but is also majority owner of the Black Press group of community newspapers, which include The Terrace Standard. He said he believes he has found lenders in Canada but gave no details, except to say he does not intend to take on equity investors. “It’s too early to say where or how, but I think it’s there,” he said. “Financially, it’s going to work out.” He aims to file a project description with the provincial government in September to initiate the environmental review process. Black first announced his plan for a refinery to export refined petroleum products a year ago. None of the major North American oil companies have expressed any interest in financing or partnering on the refinery but Black said that’s no surprise. Oil extraction is traditionally more profitable than refining, he said, and the biggest energy firms may not want a new refinery competing against ones they already own.

“I understand all that and decided early on I just had to find a way around that and I think I’ve found it.” The $25-billion cost includes roughly $16 billion for the refinery – more than initially estimated due to a new refining process that promises to emit half as much greenhouse gas – with the rest covering a natural gas pipeline, a fleet of tankers and the cost of the oil pipeline, if necessary. Besides securing financing, Black said he must secure sites for the refinery and the marine terminal with the Kitselas and Haisla first nations, determine if inland first nations along the proposed pipeline corridor can come on board and to button down formal supply agreements with Canadian oil companies. He said an engineering firm from Calgary has endorsed the alternative refining process. Black reiterated his position that he could build the refinery even if the Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline project is rejected and instead bring oil via train, but he emphasized pipelines are safer. “I really hope it doesn’t come to that – I really hope we can do the pipeline.”

A pipeline would bring money and benefits for the north that wouldn’t come with rail shipments, he added. Oil-on-rail shipments have been growing quickly as a way to

get Alberta oil to market, but a pall was cast when a runaway train carrying light crude oil exploded and destroyed the heart of Lac-Mégantic, Quebec. Black it’s not clear


to him whether there would be a risk of explosion with the rail shipment of diluted oil sands bitumen, but said he would welcome research. Sending the required

oil by rail would add 12 trains per day on the CN Rail line across northern B.C. and Black said that would mean a significant increase in noise and traffic disruption in northern towns.

TOUR GROUP at Kitsumgallum Pioneer Cemetery listens to Veronika Kurz from the Heritage Park Museum Society.

Remembered lives Kitsumgallum Pioneer Cemetery part of the area’s history


E RO N I K A Kurz pauses in front of two head-

stones. “And here are Emanual – Emil – Haugland and his wife, Bertha.” It’s a hot August afternoon and Kurz, the Heritage Park Museum Society’s community programmer, is conducting a tour at the Kitsumgallum Pioneer Cemetery. Kurz tells the story of Emil Haugland, born in Norway, who first came to Canada to farm in Saskatchewan before a newspaper ad drew him to homestead here in the early 1920s. Married to Bertha Kells from Saskatchewan, the couple had five children. After being injured in a logging accident, Haugland was retrained as a barber and ran a shop on Kalum St. from 1927 to 1968. Haugland was also part of the civic scene, eventually serving 24 years from 1932 to 1956 either as a commissioner or chairman of the predecessor body

to the current city council. If not familiar with the story of the Hauglands, local residents will be familiar with the family name because of a street so-named on the southside. In many ways the story of Terrace is contained in the personal histories of those interred at the cemetery which was declared as a heritage location by the city in 1996. In the middle of the cemetery are the graves of city founder George Little and his wife, Clara Beste. Gathered around are graves of family members, including son Dudley Little who served as a Social Credit Member of the provincial legislative assembly for years. Kurz’s tour took in 15 grave locations of the several hundred within the cemetery. Close to the western edge of the cemetery rest Dr. Stanley Mills and his wife, Edith, a registered nurse. The hospital carries their name, a honour

bestowed after the pair were killed in a fire at their house in 1961. Over the course of the tour, Kurz notes that discrepancies between the spellings on headstones and spellings found in documents and locations elsewhere aren’t uncommon. “Here’s William Sparkes. William Charles Sparkes and his wife, Rhoda,” says Kurz at one point. “Sparks St. is named after them but it is missing the ‘e’.” William Sparkes ran a shoe repair shop on Kalum for years. Rhoda Sparkes, says Kurz, was a ham radio operator, considered an unusual hobby for a woman during their years here. She’s credited with saving a person’s life by arranging medical treatment via her radio skills. In a small fenced off area are two impressive stone markers for two Serbian workers killed in an explosion during the construction of one of the railway tunnels at Kitselas in 1911. “A lot of those who


STONE CROSSES mark the graves of two Serbians killed in an accident in a tunnel during the construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. worked on the railway were from Eastern Europe,” notes Kurz. The Kitsumgallum Pioneer Cemetery came about as a result of a land donation from Samuel Charles Weeks in 1909. The original postmaster in what was then called Eby’s Land-

ing, Weeks felt the area needed a cemetery and donated a portion of his homestead. Weeks was known as “Dad” because he was older than the great majority of the other settlers who arrived in the first years of the 20th century. Ironically, Weeks is

not buried at the cemetery. He passed away in Calgary in 1925 and is buried there. The cemetery was expanded when land was purchased from the Frank family in 1936. A stand alone commission was responsible for the cemetery until it was taken over

by the city in 1970. Kurz will be doing another tour, this time on Aug. 27 beginning at 7 p.m. Donations are appreciated. The cemetery can be found off to the left at the top of the long hill that begins just after the intersection of Hwy16 with Hwy113.

Gas info AS welcome as they might have been, the recent visits by energy and mines minister Bill Bennett, aboriginal relations minister John Rustad and Coralee Oakes, who is responsible for local governments, to talk about the potential of liquefied natural gas (LNG) were just that – visits. What’s missing so far in the provincial government’s ramping up of what it’s calling a generational opportunity to make billions in tax dollars and provide an economic foundation for decades is an on-theground presence in the northwest. There’s no central provincial office to dispense even the most base level of information. Snap quiz – how many LNG proposals are there? What exactly, in 500 words or less, is fracking? Sounds terrifying. But is it really? Without a solid knowledge of what’s involved and what’s at stake how can the northwest even begin to understand what is surely one of the more complex issues the region has ever faced? In the absence of a provincial information presence, the field will be left to others to define the issue, chiefly the LNG industry and those who oppose it. And that ‘yea’ or ‘nay’ approach automatically sets up a confrontational approach where hard-core positions will not do anyone any good. If LNG is to change the face of the northwest, the province must act decisively so that its citizens can make informed decisions. ESTABLISHED APRIL 27, 1988

Exactly how the trail is laid down I’m not sure, but I suspect it involves cookies, markers advertisers use to learn which sites you visit and which products interest you. A modernized Hansel and Gretel ploy. For example, two weeks ago I read in the news that a store clerk in Zurich had refused to show Oprah a $38,000 John Ford designer handbag when she asked to see it. The clerk told Oprah, “You wouldn’t be able to afford it.” It tickled my funny bone to think that a European clerk didn’t recognize Oprah who last year earned $77 million. I sent the news item to my Saskatchewan family. Next morning a spam email notified me Hermes Shop was having a 24 hours only, 65 percent sale on handbags. From reading O Magazine I know a Hermes handbag, even with the 65 percent discount, could cost more than my Chev pickup.

CLAUDETTE SANDECKI Netflix, too, withholds no secrets. I’m one of six allowed to view movies on a single Netflix subscription. Like it or not, the other five can tell what I’ve been watching; my choices are labelled “Recently viewed”. If none of the five watched the movie, they know I must have. Google almost any topic and your choices are tallied. If I revisit a newspaper, it’s likely to say, “You last visited this site” and it will give a date. Such was the case while trying to recall the street number of an apartment we rented while living in New

York. I made several visits to the New York Public Library website where they archive telephone and city directories for all of New York City dating back to 1942. The website kept count of my successive visits. For real fun, let a hacker break into the computer of someone you might have emailed only once. If the hacker sends emails to everyone listed in the person’s hard drive get set to receive emails from every site your acquaintance visited. Sometimes there’s no explaining why you are getting spam emails. Such as my recent deluge from what must be dating sites. I’ve gotten spam emails from the likes of Luella, “Hi friend.”; Reba, “I like you.”; Leticia and Nannie, who both wrote, “Waiting for you.” And Tammie whose subject line demonstrates how selective she was choosing my address, “I need a hot guy like you.” Google for information on any topic and behold! Ads relating to your search will border your screen. For weeks. Recently searching for a


pattern to sew a shirtwaist dress similar to one I wore in a 1961 photo,. I began at the local fabric store where a clerk helped me find a pattern in Butterick’s Vintage category! To share my finding with a friend, I scouted Butterick catalogues on the internet, and sent it on by email. Now each time I want to read The Terrace Standard or the New York Times, a lineup of six models wearing shirtwaist dresses appears on the right side of the page. Long before the shirtwaist search, I googled a site to learn more about the Pulse Smartpen. This computerized pen records sounds such as interviews or speeches delivered at a meeting. Later the pen can be plugged into a computer where the speech is transposed into print. I could see the pen being an asset to any freelance writer, reporter, or university student. For many weeks afterward, an ad for the pen sprawled across the top of every screen. It may not be censorship, but it makes me choosy about the sites I visit.

school supplies are among the items adding to a single mom’s cost of living challenge.

How can I afford all of this? Dear Sir: I am a 34 year-old single parent and I have emailed various politicians including Cristy Clark, Nathan Cullen, Robin Austin, Stephen Harper, Dave Pernarowski, the ministry of children and families, among others. I would like to lodge a complaint. I’m a single parent of two boys. I worked every day pos-

sible as I am their sole provider. Their father has been ordered to pay maintenance, however there have been difficulties collecting. I was working a full time position as a pharmacy assistant and had been for the last 11 years. However that changed when I renewed the child care subsidy. They reduced

the amount they would pay to $83 per child per month come September, and I believe $367 per child a month during the summer. Daycare costs $800 a month per child for full time care. Now, with some simple addition for the summer for two kids, $800 plus $800 equals $1600. Subtract $734 for the subsidy and that

comes to $866. Adding $60 a month for after hours baby sitting and that total equals $926 – half a month’s wages. Please tell me how I can afford to pay rent of $700 and groceries and back-to-school gear, and that’s just the summer months! Now let’s look at September with $400 a child for part-time care so again let’s look at the

math. At two children that’s $800. Subtract the $167 for the subsidy for both and add in the after hours baby sitting of $60 and I’m still looking at $797 a month for the cost – still approximately half a month’s wages. When I phoned to question this, the answer I got is I make too much money.

Dear Sir: 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 fisheries. 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 Alaskan’s 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.

Imagine a trolley car gliding down Lakelse Ave.

E’ vietato attraversare la linea gialla!” This might be a line from Dante’s Inferno were it not so pedestrian. It is probably the most spoken line in Italy (after the Hail Mary). Throughout Europe in various languages, its message is the same. “It is forbidden to cross the yellow line.” In train stations, a broad yellow line about two feet from a platform’s edge warns travellers they are getting too close. Trains drift into the stations swiftly, regularly, and remorselessly. Occasionally a high-speed train will rocket through a station at about a hundred miles an hour. Yellow means danger. Millions of Europeans cross the yellow line daily, but only after the train stops. Then swarms of travelers exit and enter train and subway cars, and usually within less than two minutes the train departs again. In all of Europe, the number of people killed by trains is, on average, less than .5 per billion passenger kilometers travelled. Compared to Canada’s automobile record (in 2011, the last year

statistics are readily available) of over seven per billion, their trains are amazingly safe. These trains are part of the fabulous transportation infrastructure available in Europe. Enter any major city in Europe and public transportation is available to take you almost anywhere at comparatively low cost, conveniently and quickly. Between cities high-speed trains, often powered by solargenerated electricity, speed passengers to their destinations at nearly 300 kilometers per hour. The ride is smooth and quiet. Children colour (within the lines) on the tables between seats. A polite hostess may drift by inquiring whether or not you would like a drink. Trains arrive, usually within minutes of scheduled time, at city centers, near hotels and business centers. Within cities all manner of transport is available. U-bahns (underground trains or subways) create webs of high-speed transport between central railway stations and various suburban hub locations and nearby towns. On the surface, trams and buses

g u e s t c o mm e n t

AL LEHMANN follow logical routes at brief intervals (it is uncommon to wait more than 15 minutes for a bus or tram), usually within urban regions, but also by express to further destinations. In Amsterdam, a city of about 700,000, there are nearly 800,000 bicycles! Cyclists travel dedicated lanes all over the city. Pedestrians soon learn to listen for bike bells and the whiz of quiet tires. In Vienna free bicycles may be taken from a rack in one area of

the city and left at another official location miles away. Why steal a bike when they’re so freely available? Getting virtually anywhere in these cities, or between cities, is simple, fast and convenient within the European Union. Governments have planned for this convenience, made it happen. It’s wonderful: it’s clean, comparatively quiet, well-organized, and for the consumer, inexpensive, especially when parking may run anywhere up to a hundred Euros a day. Shopping areas are likewise efficient. With a subway entrance or a bus connection every few hundred meters, subways and buses feed consumers into broad pedestrian-only streets that feature hundreds of specialty shops and ultramodern interior malls fronting onto them. Shopping can be done at leisure in pleasure and safety. Although we face somewhat different challenges (distance, climate), we can continue to make a greater public commitment to efficient public transportation between and within cities

and towns. Consider Edmonton and Calgary, two major centers about 300 km. apart. A high-speed train could take travelers from city center to city center in little more than an hour, without the hassles of paranoid airline personnel or the nerve-wracking drain of a five-hour highway journey. Let’s fund Via Rail to turn it into a world-class travel experience: fast, efficient and comfortable. Imagine Lakelse Avenue as a pedestrian mall from Kalum Street to Eby, without those unsightly mall parking lots. Perhaps a pair of electric trolleys could ferry people and their packages from one end to the other. The trolleys would simply run back and forth at predictable speed and intervals, intersecting with a central bus hub that connects to further areas. What the Europeans understand is the nature of public good, that is, if public infrastructure is well built, operated and maintained, people will happily use it. Let’s see more yellow lines here.

Gov’t moving on LNG Dear Sir: Re: “Northwest BC NDP MLA seeks LNG clarity,” The Terrace Standard, Aug. 14, 2013. After reading some of the comments made by Skeena NDP MLA Robin Austin in your Aug. 14, 2013 issue, I think it is important for me to respond and provide British Columbians with a better perspective on what is actually happening. We have built strong business relationships with Asia and have attracted major investments to help us build a liquefied natural gas export industry in B.C. – the first of its kind in North America. In fact, over the last year we have seen the number of LNG proposals in our province increase to more than ten. I consider that major progress on our commitment to create new markets for our natural gas, and significant proof that global industry players are sincere about building LNG export facilities in our province. It has required action on our behalf to get us to where we are today, including adjustments to B.C.’s Clean Energy Act to make sure we could host a viable

Rich Coleman LNG industry and have the means to power new facilities. Make no mistake; we have more work to do, but the comments made by Skeena’s MLA provide little acknowledgment of the progress made so far. More than anything,

will do so by engaging with industry through the entire process. We are now finalizing negotiations with industry to determine the exact means of how taxation and revenue collection will be applied to LNG operations in B.C. These negotiations will lead to the establishment of a B.C. Prosperity Fund – a fund industry fully supports I might add - which will secure wealth for our province and protect it for future generations. In fact, revenues could be in excess of $100 billion over the next 30 years. As part of our plan for a debt-free B.C., this fund will reduce cost burdens for families, and strengthen the

“Significant progress has been made and our government continues to champion its future for the benefit of all British Columbians.” his comments provide false suggestions that B.C. is at a standstill with moving LNG projects forward. Let’s be clear, progress is happening. We will meet our LNG commitments, and we

economy with services people rely on such as health care and education. Our environment will not be compromised either. British Columbia’s LNG industry will be support-

ed by renewable energy options and world leading environmental policies. Positive discussions are taking place with industry to ensure we have the cleanest LNG industry in the world. Also worth noting: B.C.’s natural gas – the world’s cleanest burning fossil fuel – will also help markets in Asia transition away from other, dirtier sources of energy like coal. The reality is this will be an entirely new industry for B.C., and for Canada. Its development is not happening overnight, but significant progress has been made and our government continues to champion its future for the benefit of all British Columbians. Working with industry, First Nations, and local communities, we will continue to advance the opportunity we have created. And we will establish a strong, prosperous, competitive economy for generations to come. Rich Coleman, Minister of Natural Gas Development and Minister Responsible for Housing, Victoria, B.C.

Cost of living isn’t affordable

Please tell how a single mom with daycare costs listed above makes too much money and is supposed to make ends meet? I can’t collect E.I. because daycare costs aren’t a good enough reason to quit. So so what is a single parent suppose to do if they can’t afford daycare? Leave the child at home alone? Because that is what this crazy, insane system is saying. Can’t go on welfare because child care costs aren’t a good enough reason to quit. Please tell me how single parents are suppose to get ahead or even survive for that matter?

Ottawa must Protect salmon

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 renew-

Siegi Krigl and his newly painted sculpture of a chinook salmon. Krigl was given what was originally a plain concrete salmon as a retirement gift. Then along came his friend, local artist Joe Mandur with an offer to paint. Now, says Krigl, people slow down to take photos when they pass his Halliwell residence.

Application made for liquor outlet in the Nass Valley THE provincial liquor distribution branch is considering an application by the gas station and convenience store in New Aiyansh in the Nass Valley to open a liquor store. The branch is now sifting through public comments on what would be the only liquor sales outlet in the valley north of Terrace. Officially called a rural agency store, similar outlets are located within established businesses in smaller and more isolated communities in B.C. considered too small to support a standard provincial liquor store. Only one rural agency store is permitted in a community and although the store would have access to all available liquor products, it would not necessarily have the same selection as a provincial outlet due to limited space or other reasons. There are more than 200 agency stores located in BC. When asked if curbing acknowledged bootlegging issues in the valley was one of the reasons to consider the request, the liquor distribution branch did not comment. Sgt. Donovan Tait, the officer in charge of the Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP detachment and who has concentrated on bootlegging during his tenure in the Nass Valley, wasn’t sure if the illegal trade in alcohol would be

dampened. “It may curb the illegal sale of alcohol in some areas of the [Nisga’a] Nation. Do I think it will stop it all together? One could argue that in the western villages [of the Nass Valley], the residents who sell liquor unlawfully would have less distance to travel,” said Tait. “Whatever is decided, [the RCMP] look forward to continue working with the villages to keep everyone safe as we move forward. This is an issue that many rural communities struggle with.” Liquor distribution branch officials have already visited the valley and public comment has been gathered. That included comments from the RCMP. “The Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP does not have any official position on the liquor store application. We have been approached for input [and] will provide the liquor board with factual information surrounding public safety that may assist them in their process,” said Tait. Tait, who is being transferred to Nanaimo after two years in the Nass Valley, was instrumental in organizing high-profile seizures of alcohol meant for illegal resale. Seizures took place at residences and at traffic stops.

Green MLA coy about future The B.C. Green Party’s first elected Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) is so far playing down the possibility he may replace the outgoing Jane Sterk as the party’s leader. Andrew Weaver said he won’t take on the role of interim leader and prefers someone else do that while he learns the ropes of MLA work and

advancing the Green cause in the legislature. “The next few years will see many challenges for the province, and possible opportunities for the party, should by-elections be held,” said the noted climate scientist and new Green MLA for Oak Bay-Gordon Head, a riding on Vancouver Island.

Camera voyeur on the loose

TERRACE RCMP say they are investigating multiple reported incidents of a man in Terrace using a camera hidden in an envelope to record under women’s skirts. Local businesses are aware of the situation, RCMP said in an Aug. 16 release. There is a Facebook posting that cautions retailers to look out for the man. He is described as

First Nations, 5 ft 5 inches tall, medium build, approximately 50 years old, says Constable Angela Rabut of the Terrace RCMP detachment. The first incident occurred on July 16 at approximately noon at a local clothing store. The man dropped an envelope onto the floor and attempted to lure a woman wearing a skirt to stand over the envelope.

He returned to the store a couple of hours later and attempted the same thing. An employee of the store observed a small hole cut into the envelope and what appeared to be a small camera lens sticking out of the hole, said Rabut. A second incident occurred on Aug. 14. At approximately 2 p.m. that day a local clothing business reported a man attempting

to look under women’s skirts by using a camera hidden in an envelope. The same man was caught doing the same thing later in the day at another clothing business in Terrace. Rabut said police are looking for information in order to apprehend the man. If you have information about this crime contact the Terrace RCMP at (250)6387400 or anonymously

through Crime Stoppers by telephone at 1-800222-TIPS. Information can also be posted online at or by texting TERRACE plus your message to 274637 (CRIMES). Those who do provide information through Crimestoppers which then leads to an arrest may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2000.

Passports canceled THE province says it’s phasing out its Passport to Education program over the next three years. The program, which provided secondary school graduates with up to $1,000 to help further their education, will be replaced with one that “allows students to be recognized for their unique interests trades, aboriginal languages, volunteer activities or technology education,” the provincial education ministry said in an Aug. 16 release. The existing program provided “stamps” worth $250 each in Grades 10 and Grade 11 and $500 in Grade 12. Those who have already earned passports won’t be affected but there will be no passport stamps issued to incoming Grade 10 students, the ministry said.

a variety of open 4-H entry classes this year means a chance to view rabbits and poultry. Giant. People entering rabbits need to register on the Fall Fair website at skeenavalleyfallfair. com by Wednesday, September 4. Other en-

trants should check the website as well for information. The Fall Fair takes place at the Thornhill Community Grounds Sept 7-8.


BC Hydro encourages customers to turn off all appliances and electronics-especially portable heaters during this outage. Customers should limit opening of fridges and freezers during outage as well. When power is restored, it is advised to wait one hour before multiple appliances are used, to allow the system to stabilize. BC Hydro thanks customers and the public for their patience and understanding - crews will endeavour to work as quickly and safely as possible. For information customers can contact BC Hydro at 1 888 POWERON (1 888 769 3766).


THE Skeena Valley Fall Fair and the Shamrock 4-H club have joined forces this year to encourage entries of poultry and rabbits. The entries in what are called open classes mean that people with poultry and rabbits and who aren’t 4-H members are welcome to display their talents. “The Shamrock 4-H Club has kindly offered to provide their time and expertise to this, and we’re happy that people from the public can bring their chickens, waterfowl, pigeons, and rabbits and enter them at the fair,” says fall fair president Nancy Ross. Poultry includes chicken pullets, standard breed fowl, bantam fowl and hen and chicks of any breed/any fowl. There’s a class for a pair of turkeys (male and female of any breed) and waterfowl. Rabbit breeds include buck or doe e.g. Californian, Flemish A17

Art gallery thriving in its 30th year By Margaret Speirs THE TERRACE Art Gallery celebrates its 30th year with a resurgence in popularity. While the number of members hovers around 200 all the time, families are moving back to town and wanting to get involved and that includes moms, dads and the children, says art gallery coordinator Laura McGregor. Children are becoming more engaged in art and the gallery encourages that, she said. If children have artwork that they want to put in a frame and put it up, the gallery has frames they can borrow, she added. “This month, we have ships in bottles, birchbark bracelets. If they’re calling it arts and crafts, we’ll put it on display,” she said, adding that many years ago, people wanted their artwork of that type on display and they were turned down. “As long as it’s exhibitable,” said McGregor, adding that means as long as an exhibit can enter the space and be safely exhibited. Members are getting more involved with coming in to help sell exhibits and artwork is being displayed with a biography and history


TERRACE ART gallery coordinator Laura McGregor with “Sisters Within” by local artist Simone Klein. of the artist more now than it used to. More interest in the gallery has come from reaching out to the community, she said. Artists’ work is exhibited in half a dozen places around town, the gallery website is quite

active, and McGregor has more hours to go to schools and city council to let people know about the gallery. So people are being invited to the gallery and the new elevator at the library has brought the curious downstairs

Cadets hone skills in the Okanagan TWO 747 Royal Canadian Terrace Air Cadets are learning skills and having fun at a summer cadet camp in Vernon in the Okanagan. Cadet Matthew Lozhkin and Cadet Harry Nguyen have been participating in expedition training at Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre. Hiking skills are a key component of the training cadets receive on the basic expedition course. Lozhkin, Nguyen, and 60 other cadets are spending six weeks furthering their training and leadership skills, including how to lead others by selecting and navigating a route using maps, how to pack for an expedition, how to establish a daily routine, riding a mountain bike on trails and pad-

dling a canoe on moving water. The training culminates in a 15day expedition that will see them travel more than 250 kilometres by hiking, mountain biking, and canoeing from Vernon north to Kamloops. During the summer, more than 1,150 army, sea, and air cadets from western Canada spend up to six weeks in the Okanagan Valley training centre, expanding the training they’ve already received and developing new skills.

too. The gallery gift shop has been extended so its reception area has been changed, too. The 30th year of the art gallery kicks off Sept. 6 with the opening reception of that month’s exhibition.

Mayors past and present and a Tsimshian elder make up the planned speakers’ list. The theme is Share the Past, Inform the Future and present and past gallery members are invited to bring in a piece of art that means

something about Terrace to them with an accompanying bio or story about it, said McGregor. A subcommittee is working on historical information and an auction of 100 6”x 6” art pieces painted by locals

will take place. Silent bidding is taking place right now and goes until Sept. 27. Several pieces will be auctioned off at the opening reception and all the money goes to the art association, said McGregor.

Terrace Standard  Wednesday, August 21, 2013


eo Tolstoy said there are only two plots – a person goes on a journey, or a stranger comes to town. A stranger has come to Terrace – many strangers, in fact. There are many protagonists in our plot line. In somewhat chronological order, Terrace has hosted the Northwest Transmission Line, with all those blue Valard trucks, proponents of LNG pipelines and plants, Enbridge, Roc Holdings (Skeena sawmill) Yaorun (log yard), Dowland (run-of-river project) , and lots of helicopters: Highland from Vancouver, Great Slave Helicopters and Summit from Yellowknife and Mustang from Alberta. And Westjet soon. According to The Teaching Company’s lesson on plots, “the stranger’s arrival throws everyone off balance. Indeed, his arrival may lead to a renegotiation of all existing social relationships. What does the stranger want from us? Is it safe to be friends with him? If we do befriend him, can we still be friends with each other?” I think we have been thrown off-balance. There is no room in the inn. The hotels and motels are full, and two more are going to be built. Affordable rental accommodation is almost impossible to find. Part of the housing issue is that with big industrial projects making headlines, there’s been an influx of job seekers coming to Terrace in search of employment, the housing manager from Ksan Place said. “Word on the street is just come to Terrace and you’ll get a job.” But that’s not always the case. When some workers arrive in Terrace they find they first need to upgrade their skills and so find themselves jobless and subsequently homeless shortly after arriving.

A Stranger comes to town We have been thrown off-balance by money issues. First Yaorun was accused of not paying a local contractor for his work at the log yard. More recently Dowland declared bankruptcy, owing local creditors $700,000. Scary in a smaller way is the idea that the recent spikes in break-and-enters are due to newcomers. “Usually when they occur in a rash like this, it’s someone who came into town,” the RCMP says. Aristotle said that a story must be whole, it must have a beginning and middle and end. When did this all start? I have a button that says “Electrify 37!” from about 2006 or 2007. Was it from TEDA? Chamber of Commerce? I don’t recall. Luc Reid, in his blog post regarding plots advises, “The beginning (about the first 25 per cent of the story) consists of the protagonist discovering the goal and becoming involved.”

On October 1, 2007, an announcement was made by the Office of the Premier and the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Resources: “NEW TRANSMISSION LINE WILL BOOST NORTHERN B.C. ECONOMY” “Government has asked the British Columbia Transmission Corp. (BCTC) to proceed with the $400-million Northwest Transmission Line (NTL) in northern B.C., opening the door to investment and community development, Premier Gordon Campbell announced today.” I think that’s the beginning. Mr Reid further advises, “The middle (about 50 per cent of the story) contains most of the plot twists. The protagonist finds that the problem is a very difficult one and will take a good deal of work. The middle is over when the protagonist has come to a final, last-ditch attempt to reach the goal, the do-or-die attempt. Often the middle ends with a tremendous failure.” Hmm, does the Dowland bankruptcy mark us as being in the middle of this boom? Six years in, six years to go til the end. And how does this story end? “The exciting thing about the stranger-comes-to-town story is that it ends in a bittersweet way. Usually the problem gets resolved in one way or another, but the stranger cannot stay; he must move on, breaking the ties he’s made, breaking the hearts he’s won. As surely as the stranger came, he must leave, one way or another.” So in 2019 or so, we’ll have said good-bye to a lot of trucks riding off into the sunset. We’ll have two new hotels, will we have two old and empty ones? And how many airlines will we have serving YXT? Three or four? Or one? Well, that’s improv for you – just making it up as we go along. A21

Local team defies death in killer race Josh Massey Leave it to a group of Terrace athletes to sign up for an event called the Canadian Death Race, once again proving the tough character of this northern city. Five local cross country runners met in Grand Cache, Alberta, to participate in the 24 hour grind on Aug. 4 and 5, a 125 kilometre, 3 summit run with 17,000 feet of elevation change, one wild river and a huge party called the Death Dance on the last day celebration. It’s a sport event catering to the most extreme athletes aiming for ultra thrills. When team leader Samantha MacKenzie saw her relay partner approaching from his 27 kilometre leg, he was covered in mud and looked like he was about to collapse. “Matt was running down hydro lines. But it’s all pure mud so he came in and he fell over kind of thing, covered in mud.” MacKenzie’s team finished four hours faster than their goal at just over 19 hours. Of the 1,000 competitors, many are very serious, some professional athletes. The top time for the relay component was 11 hours. There is also a single’s event, which has a mere 33 per cent finish rate. The team of five included, in the relay order: Heather Levecque, Matt Beddie, Samantha MacKenzie, Danielle Allan, and Aimee Rumble. Another Terrace competitor who was Ottis Broekstra who competed in the junior race and clocked in at 56 minutes. At 6 years old, he’s a mini death racer. The team ran under the name Nightmares, borrowed from Terrace’s roller derby team which MacKenzie plays for.

MacKenzie said the hardest part of the race was in fact waiting in the cold for Matt, at one point taking refuge in an outhouse. That and the brutal final stretch on ankle-

buckling terrain. “It was the last 3.5 kilometres and you are on the side of the highway slanted and it was painful. That was the hardest part for me and

waiting for an hour and a half freezing.” She says it was an emotional experience that she would however recommend: “I think it was emotional for everyone because you train so long for it and then it’s over and you’re like, ‘what’s next?” adding that the race had been a long term goal for her. Despite the extreme nature of the event MacKenzie said that it was only her second official race of this type, her first being in Terrace at the Skeena Valley Relay. “I have only ever done just like the Skeena Valley race, so for me the Death Race was amazing because it was in the forest and I had 13 creek crossings and just being off the highway I found I prefer trails, it’s so much easier on your body. There’s about 1,000 competitors and the whole town shuts down and comes to the Canadian Death Race,” MacKenzie said. And, as if running through bogs and rocks for 11-24 hours isn’t hard enough, there are also signs about grizzly bears in the woods. “As I’m running there’s a big sign about grizzly bears. I’m like oooooh, lovely,” MacKenzie said. The torrential rains that blasted down that weekend made for many puddles and MacKenzie said she did a face plant at one point, bruising herself. Though she didn’t get a single blister. At the finish line, the ritual goes that a coin must be given to a grim reaper. Then the anchor times out. The Canadian Death Race has become legendary, with several features on major news outlets and a reputation spread well beyond Alberta. There is a full magazine called the Death Racer dedicated to the event.

Ringette association seeks new players Josh Massey As Kraft Hockeyville winner in 2009, one would think Terrace’s ice sports priorities are set. However, with excitement brewing over the 2015 Canada Winter Games coming to Prince George, it could be break-out time for underground winter sports like ringette. Here in Terrace, ringette enthusiast Kim Nicholson wants people to get pumped about the coming season. “Hockey seems to take the centre line in this area. Not a lot of people are aware that ringette is offered and what type of sport it is. It’s a growing sport, huge in Alberta and Ontario, with large leagues down south, too,” Nicholson said. According to Nicholson, ringette offers all the thrills inherent in the speed of hockey but with fewer concussions than that contact sport. “It’s a wonderful alternative for parents who fear the contact in hockey. It takes all of what hockey has except the heavy duty contact,” she said. Tired of dealing with puck hogs who never pass? Well, the rules of ringette require that the puck carrier must pass once they hit a line, according to Nicholson. “You can’t cross the lines with the ring so you actually have to play truly as a team and everyone needs to know how to play their

position and move very quickly,” she said. In short, Nicholson thinks the sport is more egalitarian and less violent than hockey. She prefers to see it as a sport that is a good fit for hockey players too, because it can help hone skating skills as well as on-ice vision. It isn’t hockey versus ringette, it’s rather hockey and ringette, hand in hand. Nicholson said the Terrace association caters to various ages and genders. Those who excel can go play in tournaments in Prince George and other areas. Players who do well and have a desire can play for the Prince George team in tournaments in the U18 and U16 tournaments. Those who are just beginning can come out and participate in the practices and scrimmages. It is open to all ages and genders. The season is coming fast and Nicholson is spreading the word. The Terrace Ringette Association’s first ice-time scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 3 at the Terrace Sportsplex. People can also come out to Clubs Night to learn more about it on Thursday, August 29 at the Sportsplex banquet hall. The cost for the season is $250. With at least two hours ice time a week, Nicholson says that’s a great price. There is also Come Try Ringette Day on Sept. 15 at the Sportsplex at 6:30. Looks like it’s time to get your ring on.

Bruises to show

TWO TERRACE residents participated in a challenging cross-country race July 13, and survived to share their experiences. Susan Moldenhauer was accompanied by her trainer and friend Willie Muller who both ran, uphill and downhill, for over seven hours through mountain valleys outside Vancouver—a total of 50 kilometres from Horseshoe Bay to Deep Cove in North Vancouver. The annual lottery race’s name is “The Kneeknackering Northshore Run” for good reason, according to Moldenhauer, explaining that she recently lost another toenail. “There are stairs, rocks, roots, uphill, bridges, downhill, hikers, tourists, dogs, up,’s relentless,” she explained. The annual race follows the Baden Powell Trail in mountainous North Vancouver and has 8,000 feet of climbing and 8,300 feet of

descent, said Moldenhauer, adding that the payoff comes in a feeling of elation at getting across mountains, even if only to find another waiting, and also the accomplishment at pushing oneself to the max. “For me, the third quarter was brutal. I had a fueling issue and struggled for nearly 1 1/2 hours trying to get back on track,” she said. The results? Moldenhauer topped her previous best set in 2011 by 28 minutes at 7 hours and 21 minutes, good for 9th in her age category. Muller ran the course in 7 hours and 5 minutes. Moldenhauer said it was Willie’s first “ultra” event and that he is hooked. They worked together to prepare and were both exhilarated by the experience. “It was March 5 when we found out that we were selected. Immediately Willie had our training plan all mapped out near Terrace,” she said.

Cyclists round a turn at Kalum Lake in race to Rosswood and back.

Scenic route challenges cyclists

THE ABSENCE this year of the Skeena River Challenge, the race from Prince Rupert to Terrace along Hwy16, didn’t stop local cyclists from coming up with an alternative. The Terrace Off Road Cycling Association (TORCA) cast its eyes northward, organizing a race from Terrace to the Rosswood General Store and back on Hwy113. It took place Sunday, Aug. 11. “The alternative to The Skeena River Challenge this year had 27 participants from Smithers, Kitimat, Prince Rupert and Terrace,” reports race organizer Michael Bruce. “The route was a very scenic ride up Highway 113 to the Rosswood General Store and back.” “Ten participants chose a more competitive distance of 100km to the Big Cedar River Bridge and back.” “Weather was great but everyone had to contend with a mid afternoon headwind on the return leg,” Bruce said. Also in attendance was Andrew Hansen, the 1984 Canadian Cycling Championships Road

Champion. Now living in Sechelt, is in the area working on Rio Tinto Alcan’s Kitimat Modernization Project at Kitimat. Bruce said the turnout pleased organizers who now think the race to Rosswood will be staged again next year. “It’s great to see people come out for an event that is a bit more manageable than a 160 kilometre century ride,” he added. “We had a tandem bike team of Travis Carter and 12 year old son Aiden Carter as well as Mark Henry and Peter Krause, who were in the original Skeena River Challenge over 25 years ago.” Bruce said Smithers riders dominated the 100km portion with Neil Hodgins, Peter Krause, and Thomas Skinner crossing the line for first, second and third respectively with times of under three hours. Cycling, thanks to improving road conditions and the provision of bike lanes, has taken hold in the area. TORCA is the main cycling body in the city.

Richard reported that he had been out to Shames after some salmon and had killed a couple of slivery pinks that had obviously entered the river only a short time before. By mid morning the next day, Oona and I are trotting down the Shames Creek toward the Skeena. As we make our way over the rocky beach toward the new short cut through the woods we’d discovered the day before, I think about time, years ago, when a young reporter who was working for the Prince Rupert Daily News that summer phoned to tell me that he’d read something I’d written and decided that I would be of great help providing him with some information for an upcoming article he hoped to do on salmon fishing. The young man had grown up on the East Coast, and mentioned that he had a passing acquaintance with the Atlantic Salmon fishery there. You can cast a fly, then? I asked. I’m not great at it, he answered, but I can get by. That being the case, I said, why don’t you round up a pair of waders. If you don’t have a rod, I’ll lend you one. You can interview me while we’re fishing. The young reporter thought this was a grand idea. I told him to meet me at parking

Man jailed for break and enter

3920.13.MMW.2C.indd 1

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

ALTHOUGH A man missed two of his dates with his probation officer, the fact that he did so because he was at work was a mitigating factor in his sentencing in provincial court here Aug. 7. Gordon Carpenter, 42, will spend about four-and-a-half months in jail followed by one year on probation for pleading guilty to a break and enter with intent to commit an offence and two breaches of failing to report to his probation officer as sentenced by Judge Christine Birnie. “You didn’t report because you were working, which is a positive thing but you clearly need to tell your probation officer. I suppose you could consider that to be somewhat of a mitigating factor,” said Birnie. “The big issue is you were trying to get back





on track...” Carpenter was sentenced to 21 days in jail on each of two breaches to be consecutive, for a total of 42 days, and sentenced to three months in jail for the break-in. When time served for his time in jail waiting for his court date was considered, five days, the total jail time is four months and eight days. On Nov. 5, 2012, Carpenter was sentenced to 75 days plus one year probation for a failure to abide by a court order, said Funnell, in reviewing the evidence before sentencing. On May 20 of this year, he failed to report for an appointment with his probation officer and a letter was sent out telling him to report July 12, which he also missed, court heard. On the recent break-in Aug. 2, a resident






on the 4800 block of Scott Ave. locked the doors to the residence and left around 8:55 a.m., court heard. At approximately 10:30 a.m., a neighbour saw a Caucasian man with a shaved head and slight build leave the residence on a white bike and head west, court heard. The resident returned home later to find the door wide open, the back door had been unlocked and called police, court heard. Three constables came and found nothing was stolen and noted that every door had been opened, including the locked bedroom door, which they believed had been forced open due to damage to the lock, court heard. Terrace RCMP forensic identification obtained a shoe print and later determined the shoe impression obtained had a similar style,

pattern, shape and size to shoes belonging to Carpenter, but could not say for sure that they were Carpenter’s shoes or whether it was a right or left shoe print, court heard. When Carpenter was located, he was wearing the same shoes with the same pattern, court heard. Birnie said a break-in is a serious offence as a person’s home is their castle. “It’s fortunate there was only a limited amount of damage,” she said. Carpenter will have to provide a DNA sample to police. He was ordered not to go to the 4800 block of Scott Ave. And he was to reminded to report to his probation officer when told to do so upon release to avoid ending up back in court on more breach charges.

Police hope arrests will help stifle crime RCMP believe they’ve taken a huge step to halting what were a growing number of break and enters in the city beginning last month. Two men have now been arrested, charged and one of them has already been sentenced. “Since these two men have been arrested and charged, we have seen a significant decrease in the break and enters in Terrace,” says RCMP Constable Angela Rabut of Steven Derrick, 25, and Gordon Carpenter, 42. “As it stands, they have each been charged with only one count each of break and enter though,” said Rabut. Although each faced only one charge of break and enter, police have reason to believe they were involved in others. Carpenter was sentenced for his role in the one break and enter Aug. 7. Nearly 20 break and enters in Terrace were reported to the RCMP beginning mid July. Thieves were targeting mainly electronics and other items that could be gathered up quickly. Police are reminding people of the need to secure their possessions and to be vigilant. “If you see anything suspicious in your neighborhood call the RCMP right away.

This could be vehicles or persons you do not recognize or activity in and around a residence that is not normal. A

safe neighborhood is one that watches out for each other,” says Constable Angela Rabut of the Terrace RCMP.

Missing woman is located TERRACE RCMP say a woman reported missing has been located. Police issued an alert Aug. 14 after Mary Ann Lawson’s family reported her missing Aug. 13. “She returned to her own residence on August 15,” said Constable Angela Rabut of the Terrace RCMP detachment.

Lawson is from Kitimat. Terrace RCMP were told Lawson was in George Little Park in Terrace on Aug. 4 when she told her family she was going to use the restroom. She never returned. “The Terrace RCMP thanks the public’s and media’s help in locating Mary,” said Rabut.

Fire bans are lifted

15 /mo. 65


COOLER weather in the last week has resulted in the general lifting of campfire bans in the area.

Both the City of Terrace and the provincial forest service imposed either bans or severe restrictions following a lengthy period of hot and dry weather which raised fears of wildfires. The province eased its ban Aug. 13 and the city followed on Aug. 14. But officials are reminding campers and others to keep an eye on open fires and to be prepared to extinguish them if necessary.
