Former employee sues city A MAN who served briefly as the city’s chief administrative officer last year is suing for wrongful dismissal. Don Ramsay, who was hired in March 2012, says his June 2012 resignation was made under “duress and through misrepresentations” and so is invalid, indicates his statement of claim for a BC Supreme Court case to be heard next month. At issue is a June 26, 2012 meeting between Ramsay and mayor Dave Pernarowski at which Pernarowski told Ramsay city council was recommending he be dismissed because it decided he wasn’t suitable for the position. The city offered, through a letter given to Ramsay at the meeting, the opportunity to resign with a severance package of two

week’s wages in return for waiving the right to a hearing. Under the Community Charter which governs municipalities, employees can be fired if they are given the opportunity to be heard by council and given reasonable notice, or compensation in lieu of notice. If he did not accept the offer, Ramsay would be suspended immediately and a special in-camera council meeting scheduled to let him be heard, the notice said. Ramsay, in his claim, said he was not given any opportunity to receive advice about the letter and was told if he did not sign the letter, he would only get one week’s notice of termination instead of two weeks’ pay and that by signing the letter he would be entitled to severance that the city otherwise

did not have to give him, Ramsay’s notice of civil claim said. “Because of the aforementioned reasons and representations, (Ramsay) signed the letter,” his claim states. The provincial Employment Standards Act does state an employee is entitled to one week’s wages as compensation after three consecutive months of employment. In his statement of claim, Ramsay says he did sign the letter but was wrongfully dismissed and so “has lost his compensation package for the period of reasonable notice.” And he says he “did not voluntarily resign his employment as his decision to sign the letter was based on misrepresentation made by (the city) through Mr. Pernarowski which was deliberately misleading and de-

signed to make (Ramsay) waive his right to common-law reasonable notice.” The city deserves to be punished by the court as its actions were “harsh, vindictive, reprehensible, and malicious....,” states Ramsay’s claim. When dismissed, Ramsay was entitled to a compensation package which included an annual salary of $133,000 set to increase to $140,000 a year on Sept. 12, 2012. The package included a full range of medical and other benefits. Ramsay is seeking damages for breach of contract for wrongful dismissal, punitive damages, interest, the costs of the civil case and anything more that the court deems just, the notice said.

City recycling contract on hold


■■ Art appreciation simone klein and her daughter Sierra take a look at some of the 100 canvases up for silent auction as part of the Terrace Art Gallery’s 30th anniversary celebrations Sept. 14. The silent auction is underway now but the 6”x6” canvas live auction is set to go Sept. 27 to raise money for the gallery.

CITY COUNCIL members are in Vancouver this week trying to find out how a curbside recycling program set for introduction here next May, could change. The city had already agreed to the broad terms of a contract and had been ready to sign to provide the service in conjunction with a new agency called Multi-Material BC on Monday. But it delayed the move Sept. 13 after the agency said it was willing to give municipalities more time to consider its offer to finance the service. Multi-Material BC is made up of retailers and producers of packaged products charged with increasing the amount of material that can be recycled. It’s given the municipalities the option of collecting the material themselves through a subsidy. Otherwise it will hire someone else to do the job. Council July 22 decided to undertake curbside recycling itself by picking up material every two weeks with garbage collection taking place in the off weeks beginning May 19, 2014, the start date set out by Multi-Material BC. The material would then be taken to a Multi-Material BC depot for sorting and shipping. But a growing number of municipalities last week expressed worries about overall costs of the program, prompting Multi-Material BC to make its announcement. “The program I know probably worked quite a lot better for a municipality like Terrace that didn’t have any [curbside recycling] program in place,” said Terrace mayor Dave Pernarowski of the decision to hold off signing the contract until it learns more about possible changes. “So I understand the concerns that would be expressed by other communities that this wasn’t quite the program that fit perfectly, but I would hope that the further discussions don’t delay our ability to set up a curbside recycling program.” Pernarowski said the city will learn more about possible changes this week at the annual convention of the Union of BC Municipalities. The mayor said that he doesn’t foresee that there will be a dramatic change in Terrace’s contract, but he hopes that the new terms might include lighter contamination penalties.

were put in for good reason. You can’t have a recycling program where someone has to spend hours and hours picking through it,” said Pernarowski. City staffers have already set out a program designed to avoid contamination penalties. It includes public education as well as spending $20,000 in the first year of the program to provide clear plastic bags to households.


The contract the city was going to sign called for penalties of up to $5,000 should a load contain more than three per cent of material that could not be recycled. The proposed contract also called for MultiMaterial BC to pay the city $143,000 a year to support a curbside service. “Our staff was quite clear that the work would get done to ensure we weren’t looking at incurring any of the fines that

writing to pay two weeks of salary “in return for agreeing to resign and waive his entitlement to the opportunity to be heard....” Ramsay was told he could take as much time as needed to consider the offer, the city says, but Ramsay “stated that he did not think that having a hearing would make any difference in the outcome. He accepted the offer and submitted his resignation.” On June 27, Ramsay sent an email to council and senior city staff saying he had resigned, said the city. Payments were then made to Ramsay of a sum equal to two weeks salary less all required deductions from June 29 to July 13. And the city said that Ramsay did not rescind his resignation at any time following the meeting with Pernarowski. The trial date is set for Oct. 21 in Vancouver and is expected to take three days.


As a result of the city’s breaches of the contract of employment and failure to provide reasonable notice of any dismissal, Ramsay suffered, and continues to suffer, loss and damages, including loss of salary and benefits that Ramsay was earning during his employment, the notice said. In its response to Ramsay’s claim, the city has denied that Ramsay signed the letter “as a result of any representations made by (the city), either as alleged or at all.” The city said Ramsay met with Pernarowski and was told that his performance review results indicated he was not suitable for the job and that a termination recommendation would be made to council. It added that Ramsay was entitled to be heard in an in-camera meeting which would be set up shortly and pending that meeting, Ramsay would be suspended. The city says it did make an offer in

contractor Vic McPherson parked one of his vehicles across the entrance of the YaoRun Wood logyard last week, saying he hadn’t been paid.

Log yard blockaded for the second time A LOCAL contractor removed a vehicle used to block the entrance to the YaoRun Wood Ltd. log yard last Friday after being promised he would be paid. Vic McPherson, the owner of McPherson Trucking, first parked the vehicle across the entrance Sept. 9, saying YaoRun was four months behind in paying his bill. “I’m getting tired of waiting for my money,” said McPherson at the time. “I said until I get paid I’m just going to shut this thing down. I’m just a little contractor, I can’t afford to let these guys play games like that.” McPherson said he hasn’t been paid for four months for hauling gravel and rock for the Chineseowned company which marshals logs in the yard for shipment to the coast and transport overseas. He then removed the truck Sept. 12 after YaoRun officials phoned him four times, promising he would be paid this week. YaoRun official Richard Qi said he thinks there has been a misunderstanding, and that all parties should be paid soon by company chairman Guiy-

ing Liu. “Last time when the yard was blocked and there was a dispute for $260,000, Mr. Lui paid that. I don’t think Mr. Lui is evading responsibility. There is just some sort of misunderstanding there.” Qi also said that he and Mr. Lui will be coming to Terrace soon to clear up the growing confusion over the future of the yard stacked high with hemlock, cedar and spruce. The roadblock was the second one this year to be put up at the log yard. It came six months after Bryco Enterprises parked its heavy machinery in front of the same gates to protest non-payment. The log yard area is owned by the City of Terrace which struck a deal early this year to lease the yard to YaoRun for $120,000 a year. But city officials said last week YaoRun is two months behind in paying its bill. In the meantime, YaoRun employees who had been using a home on the 4600 Block of McConnell as an office moved out of the residence early last week.

Northwest jobs picture continues to brighten THE NUMBER of people working in the northwest increased slightly in August over July, reports Statistics Canada. August’s figure of 41,200 employed in the area from the North Coast to just this side of Vanderhoof was 200 over July’s 41,000 total, a sign of steady economic activity in the area. The jobless rate did, however, nudge upward to 6.2 per cent in August from 6 per cent in July, an indication that more people considered themselves part of the workforce and were seeking employment. There were 2,700 people who listed themselves as jobless in August, just 100 more than July’s figure of 2,600 people. August’s figures continued a trend all year in recording far better numbers than a year ago. The August 2012 jobless rate was 11.8 per cent with 5,100 people jobless then compared to 2,700 this August and 38,100 people employed compared

to 41,200 this August. August’s numbers put the northwest solidly in the mid-range of jobs figures in the province compared to recent years when it had the worst employment figures. The northeast, the Kootenays and the Thompson-Okanagan reported better employment numbers than the northwest but this region topped the Cariboo, the Lower Mainland and was tied with Vancouver Island. The provincial jobless rate overall was 6.6 per cent, slightly better than July’s 6.8 per cent. The northwest jobless rate is not the number of people collecting Employment Insurance. Instead it is based on interviews of people from the north coast to just this side of Vanderhoof who consider themselves as part of the workforce whether they are employed or not. And that means the jobless rate can reflect how people feel about their own employment prospects.

The Nisga’a Lisims Government says the environmental assessment for a proposed new molybdenum mine at Kitsault was not done correctly. showing respect for provincial laws when they demand that British Columbia comply with the legal obligations set out in the environmental assessment portions of the Nisga’a Final Agreement-part of the “laws of this province.” Given the above, Mr. Cavagnaro’s opinion that Nisga’a Lisims Government is being overly cautious and disregarding provincial laws both ignores the history of the mine at issue and incorrectly states what the laws of this province are. Nisga’a Lisims Government has set job creation and economic development as one of its primary goals, and the Nisga’a Nation has supported a number of projects which benefit this region. Indeed, just last month, Seabridge Gold Inc. praised the Nisga’a Nation’s reasonableness and cooperation in negotiations respecting their proposed gold mine-a project with the potential to create a number of jobs in the area. Nisga’a Lisims Government has repeatedly stated it is open for business and seeks to work with proponents willing to undertake the assessments required by the Treaty. Projects like the proposed Seabridge mine show Nisga’a Lisims Government’s commitment to this goal. That said, Nisga’a Lisims Government will not allow the federal and provincial government to disregard their obligations under the Nisga’a Final Agreement. Mr. Cavagnaro has asked the Nisga’a Nation to “get down to business.” In seeking to create jobs while respecting the terms of the Nisga’a Final Agreement, I believe Nisga’a Lisims Government is doing precisely this.

Dear Sir: There is little doubt that the issues surrounding Avanti Kitsault Mine Ltd.’s proposed redevelopment of the historic Kitsault mine are complex. However, in his letter posted Aug. 28, 2013, (“Nisga’a Need Avanti Mine”), Mr. Gregg Cavagnaro ignored these complexities, asserting that Nisga’a Lisims Government should simply take a heads down/ hands off approach with respect to the proposed mine. Mr. Cavagnaro’s letter not only over-simplifies matters, but it is based on a number of misconceptions. Avanti has proposed redeveloping the Kitsault Mine, an open-pit molybdenum mine which has operated offand-on since 1911. This project triggers environmental assessment obligations on both British Columbia and Canada under the Nisga’a Final Agreement, as the proposed operations may have negative environmental, social, economic and cultural effects on Nisga’a people. British Columbia failed to complete the assessments and issued an environmental assessment certificate for the project last March. The Nisga’a Nation, though not necessarily opposed to the mine itself, has commenced court proceedings to require BC to perform the assessments required by the treaty. Mr. Cavagnaro states the Nisga’a Lisims Government’s approach is improper, because: 1) the Nisga’a Nation should just trust that it is not in a mining company’s “best interest to carry out shoddy environmental practices”; and 2) British Columbia has approved the proposed project, and since Nisga’a citizens are British Columbia residents, they should respect the laws of the province. These points overlook the history of the Kitsault mine, where former mine operators, permitted by federal regulations, dumped the mine’s tailings and waste rock directly into Alice Arm. This discharge by previous mine operators was approved by the federal and provincial governments. It has resulted in elevated levels of metals, including arsenic and cadmium, and the degradation of the marine and freshwater environment in Lime Creek and Alice Arm to this day. The Kitsault mine is one of the, if not the, black stains on Canada’s environmental protection record. This historical pollution caused the Nisga’a Tribal Council to demand that the Nisga’a Final Agreement include specific environmental obligations, which both the federal and provincial governments must comply with whenever a proposed project may affect residents of Nisga’a treaty lands. These environmental protection obligations are today set out in the treaty. In specific response to Mr. Cavagnaro’s statement that Nisga’a citizens should “respect the laws of this province,” he should be aware that the Nisga’a Final Agreement is given the force of law under provincial and federal legislation. The Nisga’a Nation is, therefore,

FORTUNE MINERALS camp in the Klappan sits overlooking a waterway.

Klappan conflict The struggle for resolution in an area rich with culture, wildlife and minerals


LYING BY helicopter into the Klappan Valley, a colourful landscape unfurls below. Springs, which feed into river systems bound for the Pacific, nurture fen, bog and swamp dotted with tiny evergreens woven together into patterns that look like elaborate lichen from the sky. The helicopter lands near Beauty Camp, the base for a group of Tahltan protestors and others opposed to Fortune Minerals’ plan to develop an open pit coal mine in the area. Beauty Camp is close by a Fortune camp, set up in July to collect environmental and other data in support of the company’s eventual application for approval to build the mine. We’re here for a meeting between Fortune officials and the Tahltan who claim the Klappan as their territory. Even after a decade of discussion and disagreement between the two parties it seems incredible that one of the more contentious points during the meeting was the exact location of Mount Klappan and whether it would be affected by Fortune’s proposed mine. Sitting across from each other outside on plastic chairs, a Tahltan elder pointed around the valley to the slopes of where he said Mount Klappan was, a location where they traditionally hunt everything from goat to groundhog. Then Fortune CEO Robin Goad spoke up,

By Josh Massey

directing his arm toward a different peak from the one the elder had gestured at, and said that, in fact, Mount Klappan was farther to the east. (In an interview several weeks after the meeting, another Fortune official, Julian Kemp, tired to explain the discrepancy in terms of one of deposits Fortune wants to mine – Lost Ridge. “How do you define what a mountain is? I would say originally that Lost Ridge was part of a low-lying basin coal field,” said Kemp. “Mount Klappan, which doesn’t have coal in it, that was pushed up at a different time. Where they are standing is on Lost Ridge. And the mountain they are pointing to is Mount Klappan, but we’re not mining Mount Klappan. The mine will start where Lost Ridge is and goes towards Mount Klappan.”) It was apparent that the Tahltan gathered at the meeting weren’t at that moment interested in technical geological distinctions, and considered the slopes of Lost Ridge to be part of Mount Klappan. While the Tahltan and environmentalists call this area the Sacred Headwaters because of its wildlife and spiritual values, mining industry publicists have coined the term “The Golden Triangle” to describe the larger region because it is rich with gold and other valuable minerals, made more accessible for extraction by receding ice. The legends of gold brought settlers into the

area in the 19th century, and the Tahltan mined obsidian for spearheads and tools. The copper bleeds from the alpine rocks that surround the valley in shades of greens and reds, and gold sparkles in the silt in nearby creeks. While environmentalists refer to the area as “pristine”, Goad said at the meeting that the presence of a BC Rail line decommissioned decades ago, which Fortune proposes to reconstruct in order to ship its coal, proves there has been an industrial presence in the valley for some time. And Fortune is quick to point out that an anthracite coal mine doesn’t have the same kind of chemical tailing ponds as some other mines. However a map of its proposed project shows a number of settling ponds for runoff, and protestors say the project will alter the face of the Klappan Valley with a five kilometre open pit. Fortune’s investment manager Troy Nazarewicz said there is a scarcity of high quality anthracite coal, calling it “a unique and rare product that is required to make steel and process metals in a global market of constrained supply and growing demand.” The debate goes back more than a decade now, and the Tahltan have argued that the area figures into their distant history, and is of spiritual, not economic importance. According to Tahltan creation legend the Ra-


TAHLTAN YOUTH. “Our children are our investors,” says Tahltan Central Council president Annita McPhee at a meeting with Fortune. ven god soared up the headwaters of the Nass and the other major rivers on its final trip to create the world. “He went up the Stikine to its headwaters, and it is said he also went up the Nass, Skeena and Taku rivers, and all the principal streams,” reads a 1919 history recorded by anthropologist James A. Teit. “He never travelled beyond the source of the rivers.” The conflict in the Klappan is beginning to take on a legendary quality in its own right. In the last decade, when Shell was drilling to determine if there were commercially viable quantities of coal bed methane natural gas, articles appeared in National Geographic and The Wall Street Journal reporting at

length on the story of mountain people organizing an unlikely land claims victory against one of the most powerful companies in the world. There have been startling recent events in the area. In July, shortly after Fortune began its environmental work in the Klappan, a helicopter pilot in the camp experienced what police called “a severe nervous breakdown,” and blasted holes in his helicopter, talking afterward of how pharmaceutical companies were poisoning the water. When Shell agreed last winter to surrender its claims in the Klappan in return for royalty tax credits to be used in northeastern BC, attention shifted to Fortune, a junior mining company from London, On-

tario. It bought the Klappan project more than 10 years ago and now has a South Korean partner helping finance its long-planned application for environmental approval. Aligned against it is the Tahltan Central Council, its allied band councils, and environmental organizations including the northwest-based Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition. The most recent commitment made by the provincial government to work closely with the Tahltan on resource development is the Shared DecisionMaking Agreement ratified in March, followed by a BC Liberal election promise to “examine the feasibility of developing a provincially designated protected area in the Klappan.” Over the past weeks, a working group composed of members of the Tahltan and senior staff from several government offices was struck to continue examining the future of the area. It’s been given until next March to come up with a recommendation to put forward to the government. “Provincial environment minister Mary “Polak is working closely with senior representatives from multiple ministries, including Environment, Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations; Energy and Mines; Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation; and Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and they will consult with

cabinet,” said a statement from her ministry. Fortune is basing its coal mine plan on the province’s Cassiar Iskut-Stikine Land and Resource Management Plan of 2000 created in consultation with the Tahltan. It noted the high quality mineral deposits in the Klappan, an area that Fortune says was not part of the agreedupon protected areas set out in the management plan. Based on this previous study and because the government gave them permits to do preliminary assessments, Fortune says it has a legal right to be in the valley. The Tahltan continue to protest their presence with blockades and drum marches, saying the valley has been used since time immemorial for hunting and spiritual purposes, and recently for a children’s culture camp. “There were some battles fought there. You will find weapons and stuff like that. I know there were some burial sites too. Once you start digging I am sure you will find a bunch of stuff,” said Tahltan band manager Ryan Franke. Franke said the Tahltan are unanimous in wanting the Klappan protected. “It might be the first time you will get Tahltans in the room and have them all agree. The Shell situation I think ... pretty much solidified everyone together.” Franke said companies need to learn how to better educate people about their plans before entering Tahltan lands.

Bus fee THE surprise imposition of a $20 a month fee for students who bus to Ecole Mountainview French immersion school and Uplands Elementary is the very thin wedge of a much larger debate about how universal the public school system really is. The fee is based on the position that students who live outside a school’s surrounding area shouldn’t expect a free bus ride. No matter that in the case of Ecole Mountainview there isn’t a catchment area because its instructional program eclipses the concept of a neighbourhood school. If you choose to have your child learn French, then pay you must. This strikes at the foundation of public schools – equal access and opportunity where parents, no matter what school their children attend, pay taxes to support the system. By extension then, the bus fee is not a fee, but an additional tax. Woven into this is the perception, unstated as it is, that students attending the two schools come from higher income families so that the additional bus tax is affordable. Yet if affordability is an issue, the school district might waive the fee. How this might be determined is vague and undefined – by family income? By number of children in a family? By spending habits? What’s really going on here is the transformation of a universal system into one where the school district arbitrarily decides who benefits and who does not. It’s an unenviable job. ESTABLISHED APRIL 27, 1988

Not quite the World Wide Web

eptember would be an ideal time to hike the woods or chore around the yard if it were not for spiders. Everywhere I go I strangle in spider webs. They string their guy wires across any open space between trees, bushes, fireweed, and from every eave. I’ve even driven off to town with a spider bouncing on his web strung from the side mirror to the truck box. Very distracting. I encounter spider tension cables strung across the garden gate, the greenhouse door, among vines of tomato plants. When I step into the greenhouse carrying the hose, spiders scramble to the farthest height of their web. I could wipe them down, or kill them, but they control flies and other creepy crawlies while appeasing their hunger. Each window has its own occupant. In the morning when I open the bedroom curtain, I face a creature big as a lobster. A smaller specimen has been trapped for two weeks between the screen and the window over the kitchen sink. He rarely moves. I don’t see anything for him to eat. Yet he refuses

CLAUDETTE SANDECKI to leave when the window is open. Spiders are fun to observe. Toss a beetle into a web and see how swiftly that beetle is trussed with swathing bands until it can’t wriggle. Some spiders finish the job with a paralyzing injection. How quickly can a spider distinguish potential dinner from trash or an intruder? Drop a bit of grass blade into a web. The spider will speed to the location, determine the grass to be useless as well as harmless, and in an effort to get rid of the offending object, vibrate the web in a blur matching the wings of a hovering hummingbird.

But walking my dogs along trails criss-crossed by webs is what I dislike most. Gossamer webs pin my arms, gag my mouth, cling to my bifocals. Finding an eightlegged blob stomping down my t-shirt makes me shiver though I know they won’t bite: they hop off as soon as they realize I’m a hostile host. My dogs are too short to sweep away any webs. Mushroom pickers are no help either; they meander through the trees where no dogwalker ever goes. Consequently I fan the air before me with a stalk of fireweed like a lackey preceding a maharajah riding in his elephant carriage. Anyone watching from a distance might deem me demented ... until they try heading out along the trail 30 minutes after anyone’s passed by. Facing west into the afternoon sun, their concentric circles are plain to see and duck. But on the twisting trails between trees where sun seldom penetrates the canopy, the walker is ambushed every few feet. The strength and clingability of the webs are out of all proportion to their filament ap-


pearance. I’m still brushing off webs long after I’ve run into one. Wikipedia says spiders produce five or more types of thread each with a special purpose: “Dropline silk for letting the spider drop down while building. Also used for quick getaways from danger. Dragline silk for the web’s outer rim, spokes and lifeline. Per weight, can be as strong as steel but tougher. (When dragline silks are exposed to water, they undergo supercontraction, shrinking up to 50 per cent in length and behaving like a weak rubber under tension. It has been hypothesized this is to automatically tension web built in the night using the morning dew. Capture-spiral silk for capture lines. Extremely stretchy and tough. Aciniform silk used to wrap and secure freshly captured prey. Two to three times as tough as the other silks including dragline. And a special silk used as temporary scaffolding during web construction.” Spiders and their pesky webs will disappear with cold weather.

The Mail Bag City needs a dog park

Move lanes over

Dear Sir: Eby Street in the horseshoe area was repaved this summer. A bike lane was added. At the intersection of 4800/4700 Tuck Ave. at Eby Street is a bike lane that runs towards downtown and bears the painted symbol of a bike. The problem with the bike lane being there, is it is too close to the road where the cars travel. There is the road for the cars, and right beside it is the bike lane, and right beside that is gravel, then grass, and then a sidewalk. This is not safety. The bike lane has to be in further away from the cars. The gravel part that is there should have been paved, and that is where the bike lane should be so that it is away from the cars. With all the talk about safe bike lanes, Terrace bike lanes are not in a safe place. Yvonne Nielsen, Terrace, B.C.

Dear Sir: Re: “Dogs roam city park,” a letter to the editor in the Sept. 11, 2013 issue of The Terrace Standard. I have lived in Terrace almost my entire life. I own a small very friendly dog. My response to this letter may be different from most. While I am a dog owner I also have three kids. One of them is three years old. I have been to this park many times over the years and actually have plans to go there tomorrow with my toddler after I visit the library. This park is central. So is the field. I am still loving the person who took it upon themselves to remove the bottoms of the trees there where people would sleep in. Since then this park has been much better! While I personally have never been approached by any dog at this park in the years I have taken my children there I do agree that every person has the right to take their kids to the park without having to worry about a dog jumping on their toddler or child or making them uncomfortable in any way. Not everyone has a dog. I think most people that take their pet there are exercising their pet and as a local animal advocate I say – good for them. There are so many chained and ignored, this makes me happy to see.

Perhaps the park itself could be fenced or Terrace could finally make a dog park somewhere. I too have had unpleasant experiences over the years with loose dogs in various places here in Terrace, but none there, although I do see the letter writers’s point. The owner generally has no control over their dog or is delusional about how “friendly” their dog really is – when this has happened to me I try to report it to the appropriate authorities. But for the most part I think it’s great that we have a local area for people to bring their pets and let them run around. If you have suggestions of a better place or would like to see this park fenced or see a dog park in this community, I encourage you to bring those suggestions to the city council.

Child support payments must be kept up

single parent of two boys recently went public in a letter to the editor with a detailed outline of the harsh financial reality facing her due, in some measure. to difficulties in collecting maintenance payments the boys’ father has been ordered to pay. Her reality is not unheard of, and the defaulting parent is not a deadbeat dad, he is a miscreant dad. Babies exact a contractual obligation on parents, not with each other but with the child. That contract begins with the birth of the child and endures until the child reaches adulthood. We have two possibilities with which to deal with problems resulting from children who are financially abandoned by one parent: we either provide for such children as a society, or we establish laws and conditions that deter parents from defaulting on their obligations. Many societies, mostly in Europe, provide free daycare and af-

ter school care which is available to all children. Yes, such services do cost money which the state has to collect in the form of taxes. Anyone opposed to the idea must bear in mind that the children born today are the ones who, by the time they reach adulthood, will be called on to pay for the government debts we have accumulated. The least we can do is to provide them with favourable odds in their formative years. Some politicians have been advocating free daycare, after school care, and comprehensive school supply programs, but such ideas have not gained a foothold in our society. So let us look at the other option. We impose consequences on individuals who fail to meet mortgage payments, car payments, or credit card payments. Suggesting that a person should be allowed to simply walk away from a financial obligation, be referred to as a “deadbeat eater” when walking out of a restau-

g u e s t c o mm e n t

ANDRE CARREL rant without paying, a “deadbeat driver” when driving away from a gas station without paying, or a “deadbeat customer” for shoplifting would be ridiculous. Why then do we care so little about “deadbeat dads” instead of recognizing these miscreants for what they are, and dealing with them accordingly? If we prefer to leave parents

with the responsibility to provide for the next generation, we had better govern that responsibility appropriately. The contract arising from childbirth is between parent and child, not between mother and father. In other words, financial obligations imposed on a parent who walks away from the family are not due to the other parent, they are due to the child. In consideration of the long-term consequences, child support payments must therefore be recognized as a parent’s top ranked financial obligation. Child support obligations must take priority over mortgages, loans, and all other financial obligations. The state must be assigned the duty to monitor compliance. The state should maintain a register of all child support orders issued. Financial institutions and credit card issuing corporations should be required to submit all applications for mortgages, loans or credit cards from individuals

to such registry for clearance. Credit applications by an individual whose child support payments are habitually in arrears should be denied. In cases where a delinquent parent has no assets and no income, or has absconded abroad, the state should be obliged to make the full child support payments ordered in lieu of the defaulting parent. The state should maintain a record of payments made in such cases and have the capability to recover such sums, with interest, if the possibility for doing so should arise at some future date. My preferred option is for society to provide free day care and after school care, and to supply needed school supplies. But if we want the cost of raising children to remain a private affair, then at least let us act responsibly in the ways we deal with it.

No-notice bus fee termed a disgrace Dear Sir: This is the email I sent to Mr. John Garossino, the school district official in charge of bussing. Dear Mr. Garossino: My child has been in the French immersion program since kindergarten as has his older brother. He is now in grade 6 and all of his friends are in French immersion. My catchment school is Uplands Elementary. As you have suddenly decided to start charging me for bussing my child to Ecole Mountainview with no advance warning the following are my expectations regarding my child’s schooling. Uplands School is full but you will be making room in this school for my child and the others who belong to this catchment area and used to go to Ecole Mountainview. My child will show up at Uplands and room will be made for him immediately. This will be done even if it means removing other student and sending them to their own catchment area schools. These changes will be done sooner rather than later to minimize disruption to my child. You will ensure that his new teacher spends whatever time is necessary to bring him up to

speed with the rest of his new classmates. You will also reimburse me for whatever school supplies I purchased that are not required at Uplands. You will also provide a psychologist for my child should there be issues because he has been forced out of his school and into a new one without warning simply because of your complete and disrespectful lack of communication. If you were going to charge for busing then you should have told us that last winter when we had the option of registering our child (children) in our catchment area schools where busing is provided by my tax dollars. This is a disgraceful situation that you and the other decision makers at School District 82 have created and you should all be ashamed of yourselves. The only reason this won’t be a class action law suit is because most people won’t disrupt their children and will come up with the $20 per month per child. The people you have hurt are the low income often single parent families. Certainly parents contemplating French immersion should be warned that busing costs will be passed on

to them. We know the rate will only rise. There is also no guarantee that there will even be bus service to Ecole Mountainview in the future as it is a school of choice and the school district is not mandated to provide bus service. This certainly was not made clear to me when I enrolled my children in the French immersion program. Some timely communication and information would certainly have been a much better idea on the part of the school district. Just saying .. Valerie Neifer, Terrace, BC

Well done

Dear Sir: I commend the young lady who has planted and taken care of all the gorgeous hanging baskets in town. They have never ever been more beautiful! If the city has contracted her out to do this, I suggest they hire her again next year. They are so healthy and beautiful I am in awe every morning driving to and from work. Considering our hot weather this year, she has done an incredible job keeping them watered. Genniene Sutherland, Terrace, BC

Catch and release called disrespectful Dear Sir: Call me ignorant or slow on the uptake but I fail to understand why anyone in today’s world would want to catch and release fish.

From a First Nations cultural, ethical and spiritual point of view, it shows disrespect to an animal, merely to play with it and let it go. When the elders said, “Don’t play with your


food”, they meant it. We are in First Nations fishing territory and we need to honour that. Marianne Brorup Weston, Terrace, BC

Save the Kings campaign afoot As the Terrace River Kings turn 10 and ready for the upcoming 2013/2014 CIHL season, organizers warn that without more support, this year could be their last

Wouldn’t you miss the River Kings if they were gone? That’s essentially the question Terrace River Kings executives are posing to the public in a notice circulating around town imploring residents and businesses to “Save the River Kings”. The notice warns that without more sponsors and community support, the 2013/2014 CIHL season – the team’s 10th – could be the team’s last. “We’re losing money,” said River Kings general manager Ray Hallock. “Everything costs more, everything is going up in price every year – fuel costs, travel costs, accommodation, everything, you name it – and our attendance is going down every year.” This is the case throughout the CIHL, he said. “They all struggle. This year, Hazelton came back in and then dropped out again when they discovered that they had some previously uncleared debt that the new guys didn’t know about. Vanderhoof dropped out this year,” he said. “Powerhouses like Kitimat, Smithers and Rupert, they’re still going to be okay. I know Houston is suffering a little bit. Williams Lake... Everybody’s crying the blues these days.” And Hallock says that a few years ago – before the boom – he could understand

River Kings hopefuls face-off Sept. 5 during tryouts at the Terrace Sportsplex. the lack of sponsorship, but that’s not the case anymore. “The last five years, we can’t expect people to dig into their pockets and find money they haven’t got,” he said. “But you know then all of the sudden this year... Drive around, what do you see? 500 new vehicles every hour. There’s a lot of money going on around here now but none of it’s coming back in to the community.”

The River Kings are an integral part of the community, says Hallock, because they provide a place for graduates Terrace Minor Hockey to continue to play hard-hitting, competitive hockey for the rest of their active lives. “Every year we’ve got new kids out of minor hockey,” he said. “We give good hockey entertainment.” And while Hallock says

with all sincerity that if the team’s fortunes don’t improve this year, either at the gate or with sponsorships, this could be the team’s last year, the initial response to the campaign – which started a few weeks ago – has been positive. “Early returns have not been bad,” he said. “The money is trickling in... Can’t really complain about it and it’s early yet, so lets wait and

see as the season gets closer, see what happens.” The season is coming up quick – the Kings face off against the Prince Rupert Rampage in the Challenge Cup tournament opener this Friday night in Prince Rupert. And Hallock says the team is looking sharp this year. “I think our prospects are really good this year,” he said. “There are some really

good young guys, a couple of Jr. B guys have come back, and the good part about it is that we haven’t really had to cut any regulars to make way because there’s just been enough of the regulars that have moved on that they’re kind of making room by attrition.” Jr. B players coming back to Terrace to play is a recent development. “One of the benefits that we’ve got this year from the boom is that there are enough jobs out here that some of the good young guys are moving back,” explained Hallock. “For years that was part of our big problem – when they hit 18 they had to leave town because there was just no work for them here.” This new team will have to build on last year’s momentum, which came close, but ultimately fell flat. “Last year except for a couple of missteps on Friday night we would have been in the Coy Cup finals and man, watching that game on the finals, the way we played even the Friday night before we would have walked all over Kitimat and won that,” he said. “I really feel that this could be our year,” he said. “And how great would that be? Ten year anniversary, win the Coy Cup, even if we were broke next year at least we would go out with style.”

Hockey academy isn’t just about ice time

Anna Killen PHOTO

Dry-land trainer Cody Skog, left, and athletic director Frank Marrelli lead Skeena Middle School hockey academy students in dry-land instruction.

The inaugural cohort of Skeena Middle School's new hockey academy took to the ice for the first time last week, but an enthusiastic pep talk from the program's founder revealed that what happens off the ice in the academy is just as – if not more – important for student success. Pacific Rim Hockey Academy owner Craig Millin spoke to newly enrolled academy students at Skeena during the first week of school, using the lunch hour to explain what is expected of the students and what they can expect to gain from the program. The close to 45 middle school students enrolled in

the program, one of 10 in the province, can expect three days a week of ice time, two days of dry land training, and a rigorous, expansive curriculum that covers everything from nutrition, to volunteer work, to goal setting. But according to Millin, academics is the focus – hockey is used as a motivator – and a student who isn't doing well in their classes won't last in the academy long. “To be part of this program you have to be diligent and on top of your academics,” said Millin in his speech. “You defeat the purpose of having a hockey academy if you fail your subjects.”

Skeena's athletic director Frank Marrelli will be assessing the students with the support of Pacific Rim staff. On-ice training and tactics is led by Brad Anderson, and Cody Skog is running the dryland training – the first week of which had the students running 5k on the Skeena track before a rigorous core and strength workout session. There are five girls in the program, and about three quarters are recreational hockey players, with about a quarter playing rep hockey. “It's just kids who love the sport,” said Skeena vice principal Cory Killoran.

End-of-season Lakelse dragon boat regatta roars BEAUTIFUL WEATHER brought in a bounty of boaters and spectators to the 8th Annual Lakelse Regatta earlier this month. Held at the Furlong Bay Boat Launch, Lakelse Lake, on Saturday, Sept.7, 2013, the all day event is being hailed as “a great success”, said Lakelse Dragon Boat Society president Carole Marcellin. “Thanks to the 2013 Regatta CoCoordinators, Kirsten Earl and Jean Alexander and their awesome committee and volunteers, for all their hard work and dedication, to make the event a huge success,” she said. Terrace Pipes and Drums kicked off the opening ceremonies before a noon start for the races, which featured eight teams this year – one each from Terrace, Smithers and Prince Rupert and 5 teams from Kitimat. After the Finals for the mixed

races, there was a fun 'Ladies of the Lake Mix-Up Race', A ladies only race, where names were entered into a ballot box and randomly selected and then placed on a team. Each team was comprised of women paddlers from Smithers, Prince Rupert, Kitimat and Terrace, making it a true mix up race. This was followed by the 'Guts & Glory Race', a gruelling 1000 meter race where qualification was determined by the best single race times from the Heats or Qualification Round. After the 'Guts & Glory' Race, the Zone 10, BC Senior Games, Ladies Dragon Boat Team, The 'Lakelse Dragons', had one last paddle together. The team came 1st in B Division, at the Games in August in Kamloops – the first time that Zone 10 had entered a dragon boat team. Following the closing ceremo-

First place in ‘Ladies of the Lake’ Mix-Up Race was The ‘Dragon Dragons’ who won a prize of champagne and chocolates. And in the ‘Guts & Glory’ Race Tragically Quick also took the top spot, with a trophy sponsored by the Flying Fish and presented by Glen Saunders. “We look forward to the 2014 dragon boat season and meeting up with our dragon boat friends from Smithers, Prince Rupert, Kitimat and Terrace, for the camaraderie and friendly dragon boat racing,” said Marcellin. “Paddles up!” For a full list of results and participants, see www.terracestandard. com.

he way I heard it, a couple of Gordie Doll’s friends had been playing cards with the old trapper when the wind outside began to bend the trees. Gordie’s acquaintances decided to drink up and head back to Terrace before trees started to fall across their road out. When they returned several days later they found an old hemlock had split the cabin in two and that their friend was pinned underneath it. Gordie survived, but the accident hastened the end of his career, and probably the end of his life. As we pass the remains, Oona sticks her head inside. I call her away. Jim wants to have a look at how the construction of the Pacific Trails pipeline is progressing. We drive up the valley past sprawling, greening clear cuts. At the highest part of the road we get an expansive view of the Clore Valley. The far side of the river shows some signs of ancient fires but otherwise it is heavily treed. Directly across from us, surrounded by old forest, is a large slide. There are avalanche chutes but this isn’t one. It’s one of those places in the Copper River drainage where the land has given way for no immediately apparent reason. When he’s taken a picture of the slide and climbed back into the truck, I ask Jim to picture what might have happened had a pair of pipe lines carrying condensate one way and bitumen the other been built on that side of the valley.

We tell her we’re just tourists who’ve come up the valley to count salmon and see how much has been done on the pipeline. Do you know if they’re going to build a work camp? asks Jim. The plans seem to change all the time, says the young woman. I suggest that, in the end, the company will probably just transport their workers to the site in the same way that the forest companies did when they logged the valley. Some of the men who logged here are back working for the pipeline, comments the young woman. You live in Terrace? I ask. Yes, she says. What’s your name? Christine, she says, Christine Leclerc. Any relation to Carol? That’s my mom. My wife works for the same outfit as your mom, I say. Small world. We say goodbye to Christine and drive down the valley toward town.

Coroner probes woman’s death THE PROVINCIAL coroner has taken over the case of a 25-year-old Terrace woman who died Sept. 10 in Vancouver General Hospital. And the Terrace RCMP are conducting their own internal review into the death of Alyssa Oleksiuk. On September 3 at 10:39 a.m.,Terrace RCMP were called to a landlord/tenant issue on Kalum St., said police at that time. That led to the arrest of a 25-yearold woman on an outstanding warrant, said police. While in jail at the detachment, the woman went into what was called medical distress and was taken by ambulance to Mills Memorial Hospital. The woman was then transported to Vancouver General Hospital where she passed away Sept. 10. Constable Angela Rabut from the Terrace RCMP detachment said it contacted the newly-formed Independent Investigation Office when the woman was taken to Mills Memorial Hospital. The investigation office has the authority to look into incidents involv-

ing police officers. Oleksiuk was not considered to be in Terrace RCMP custody when subsequently transferred to Vancouver, said Rabut. Owen Court from the Independent Investigation Office said one of its investigators determined “there was no evidence to suggest the actions or inactions of a police officer contributed to the death.” For that reason, he said the office decided not to become involved. Coroner official Barbara McLintock said a detailed investigation to determine the cause of death, the circumstances, and whether there are any issues of preventability to be addressed will take place. She said the case will then go to the chief coroner who will determine whether it should be concluded by a public inquest or by a coroner’s report. “Many cases which involve someone being in police custody do go to inquest, but it is no longer automatic that this happen, and can be based on the individual circumstances of the case,” she said.

Partial human skull found THE case of a partial human skull found recently north of Terrace has now been turned over to the provincial coroner’s office. The skull was found nearly two weeks ago in the Spring Creek area and taken to the Terrace RCMP detachment. “At this time, this is a coroner’s investigation with the Terrace RCMP assisting,” said Terrace

RCMP Constable Angela Rabut. Barbara McLintock from the provincial coroner’s office said a comprehensive investigation is underway. The list of people involved includes the RCMP and forensic specialists, including an anthropologist, she said. “And quite possibly as the investigation

progresses forensic dentists and/or experts with DNA. My understanding is that efforts continue to try to find any further remains in the area,” McLintock added. “All efforts will be made to determine the identity of the skull (and hopefully other remains if found) as well as to determine a cause of death and a classification of death.”

Floating LNG plant proposed by company THE COMPANy which owns an abandoned mining town on the north coast says it’s an ideal location for a floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant. Kitsault Energy official Dave Pernarowski says a floating plant to turn natural gas into a super-cooled liquid for export would be faster to put in place than land-based ones being proposed. “[This] will save a considerable amount of time on the backend in terms of construction in terms of the land base,” Pernarowski. “With our phased approach, to get us to a point where we’re physically shipping natural gas across the ocean to Asia and other markets, I think we can get there just as fast, if not faster than some of these other projects.” Kitsault Energy was formed by Kitsault

townsite owner Krishnan Suthanthiran to market the location as an energy hub because its location on Alice Arm provides access to the Pacific Ocean for LNG tankers and its convenience as a end point for natural gas pipelines originating in northeastern BC. It still needs to find partners or investors for planned pipelines, the LNG facilities it wants built at Kitsault and a supply of natural gas itself. Pernarowski, who is the mayor of Terrace, spoke shortly after returning from a trip to China with other Kitsault Energy officials to line up potential investors. “Everyone we talked to during our trip expressed a great deal of interest in the natural gas,” he said. “China is looking for large amounts of LNG to

power their country and try to move away from coal, they’re really trying to work on environmental issues over on that side of the world. So, burning natural gas instead of the coal burning methods that they’re using now will be a big improvement for them. They’re just very keen on finding opportunities to get access to the natural resource.” Pernarowski acknowledged that time is of the essence because of other LNG facilities being proposed for Kitimat and for Prince Rupert. “We may be a little bit behind some of the other activity, but we think we can get there just as quickly,” said Pernarowski. He did note that two LNG projects being proposed for the Prince Rupert area would be fed by natural gas pipelines traveling across

northern BC and coming out on the coast at Kitsault before turning south. “Kitsault is considerably closer to the actual gas fields, so that’s going to save any company that partners with us billions of dollars in pipeline construction, environmental assessment through waterways, etc.,” said Pernarowski. Kitsault Energy isn’t the first to consider a floating LNG plant – a similar idea is being fleshed out for the Kitimat area through a company partially owned by the Haisla Nation.

Marijuana oil burns teen

TERRACE RCMP responded to about 122 calls from Sept. 9 to Sept. 13 with 20 people lodged in the detachment cells and of those 20, 12 were in for public intoxication. Here are a few of the highlights from those calls. A trailer caught on fire when a 17-year-old boy dropped some marijuana oil on a mattress while he was processing it on Queensway Dr. The boy suffered burns to his hands that were treated by Emergency Health Services. Damage to the trailer was minimal. This took place between September 11, 8 a.m. and September 12, 8 a.m. Also in Thornhill, thieves stole several highpriced items in a break-in at a residence on Kerby St. Taken were two ATVs and a 16-foot trailer, two televisions, two digital cameras, two Sony playstations, and two tote boxes full of tools. The break and enter occurred between September 9th at 5:30 p.m. and September 10 at 11 a.m. And officers pulled over a white 2012 Honda Civic for going 146 km/hr on Hwy 16 west of Terrace and impounded the vehicle for excessive speed between Sept. 12, 8 a.m. and Sept. 13, 8 a.m.

WHILE FORTUNE Minerals finds itself under siege over its plans to develop a coal mine in the Klappan area, another company is planning to leave forever. Shell is sending people up to the area this week to remove two remaining wellheads installed in the middle part of the last decade to explore for coalbed methane natural gas. The company late last year surrendered all claim to the Klappan in return for $20 million in royalty credits from the province which it will put toward a water recycling facility at one of its northeastern B.C. gas producing sites.

“We had previously removed the wellhead from the Summit [drill] site so only have the two remaining to remove,” said company official Larry Lalonde of Shell locations in the Klappan. “With that our work will mostly be done and we will look to mother nature for her efforts around vegetation taking root and growing.” Shell at one time had an active program in the Klappan in hopes of finding commercially-viable quantities of natural gas. Since 2004, the company spent $32.5 million on its Klappan project, said Lalonde. But like Fortune, it ran into pro-

tests from the Tahltan worried over the effect of natural gas extraction on water supplies. Tahltan members and environmental groups banded together to oppose Shell, resulting in marches and rallies across the region and elsewhere. For many it was also the first time to hear about fracking or hydraulic fracturing, the process in which water and chemicals are pumped underground to release natural gas. Protests eventually led to a temporary two-year moratorium on drilling agreed to by Shell in 2008. It was extended in 2010 and then in

2011 leading to last year’s agreement. In evaluating the situation, Lalonde said the Klappan project was no longer a Shell priority. “Shell has a robust portfolio of exploration and production opportunities in North America,” said Lalonde. What Shell won’t be doing is taking up road access to the drill site locations. That’s because it’s an existing road into the region and was originally constructed as a railbed for a BC Rail expansion that never panned out. “Any road reclamation would

be to the actual [drill] pads themselves,” said Lalonde. Shell did, however, spend money fixing up the railbed road when needed, including extensive work after a washout took place in 2007. There was also high water damage done to the road this spring. The Klappan contains large coal deposits with resident coalbed methane gas that potentially could have be released through the practice called fracking. Shell’s planned water recycling facility in northeastern B.C. is aimed at reducing the amount of fresh water needed at the gas facility.

First aid help in hand FOR FIRST aid advice when you’re on the go, the Canadian Red Cross has an app for that. “We (the Red Cross) recognized that there is a need to make first aid information easily accessible – having the right information at hand could potentially save a life,” said Debbie Van’t Kruis, head lifeguard at the Terrace Aquatic Centre, who works with the Red Cross here. The free app is available for Android, iPad and iPhone by searching for Canadian Red Cross in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store for Android. There’s information for learning what to do in various medical situations, plus emergency preparedness tips, quizzes and videos. Van’t Kruis said the app came about in response to a poll done recently by the Canadian Red Cross found that 40 per cent of Canadians say they’ve been in an emergency situation where they had to perform first aid. And although more than two-thirds of Canadians say they can recognize signs of a life-threatening health emergency such as choking or heart attack, only half are confident in their skills to help. “Ideally we would encourage Canadians to take a first aid course – this app is not a substitute for being trained; however, it allows us to reach a broader audience particularly in areas like our community where it can be difficult to find a course,” she said.

Teen helps children in Uganda By MARGARET SPEIRS


SYDNEY MAKI with some of the 80 pairs of shoes collected so far for Project Ekitangaala, a non-profit she began for orphans in Uganda.

A LOCAL teen has started a nonprofit organization to help AIDS orphans in Uganda. Sydney Maki, 16, began Project Ekitangaala (e-ch-tahn-gahlah), which means The Light in the local language Luganda, to help children who have lost one or both parents to AIDS. Maki was in hospital with a chronic pain disorder and spent her time reading, which included a book about Africa that led to her desire to help others. The town where the children live is Kyotera, about an hour from the nearest city in the district of Rakai and 119 km southwest of the Ugandan capital Kampala. The children, about 423, can’t afford school fees, food or basic medical care so the project works with Glory of Christ Primary School to provide these things for the children. Only about 20 children can live at the school and the rest live on their own or with the one parent they have. Maki started the project in December to help and once she connected with the man who started the school, people started to support the project so she decided to turn it into a ministry, she said. So in March, the project officially began. Maki has been collecting shoes for the children and already has two boxes overflowing with 80 pairs, and is hoping to collect 300 pairs. When she travels to Uganda

next June, she plans to buy some shoes there as well to support local workers. While there, she will sleep in the children’s homes, help deworm them and treat their feet for chiggers. There’s also plans to build more houses for the students during the month she’s there. When she returns, she’s planning to go to the University of Calgary and get a degree in midwifery, and then intends to return to Uganda. For those who would like to get to know the children better and get involved, there’s a pen pal program where people here are matched up with students. The students have sent artwork and jewelry they make that’s been sold as one of the fundraisers for them. Money raised goes to help pay the salaries for the school’s seven teachers and feed the children, all of which costs $1,000 each month, she said. And she made bookmarks to sell to raise money for mosquito nets. Anyone who wants to donate shoes can drop them off at the Thornhill Community Church. Crocs are preferred as they’re lighter to pack and carry to take to Africa, but anything is great, she said. An upcoming fundraiser evening will feature Ugandan food samples, live music and more. For more details about the fundraiser evening, see Arts for Africa under Fundraisers in City Scene on page 19.

Fair welcomes more visitors, more fun FALL FAIR visitors came out in double the numbers of last year to enjoy the activities offered and see the exhibits to the delight of organizers. “We were really pleased. We had great crowds,” said organizer Nancy Ross. “We had lots of new kinds of events and people came out to them. There was lots of stuff to do during the day and lots of families so we were really happy for it all.” The local 4-H was heavily involved and even held an animal fashion show among other events, she said. With the Totem Saddle Club holding its horse shows during the weekend, visitors were able to enjoy that too, she added. The only problem was the wind, which was too gusty on Sunday for the remote model airplane enthusiasts so they couldn’t fly their bigger planes, she said. Quite a few people entered the contest to grow the biggest sunflower

but not so many in the pumpkin competition. “Maybe they thought with their pumpkins ‘mine won’t win.’ We could’ve had more entries,” she said, adding many people said they forgot to enter and they may need to be reminded of it early. The zucchini races had many more entries this year, making it a huge success, said Ross. As was the goat nugget drop, which was a little easier to hold than last year’s cow patty drop. “The goats were tinier and there was only one,” said Ross. “So it was a super easy event. A little crowd came out to watch it. People really like it, something about it really appeals to people.” The ping pong ball drop only allowed one ball per child so there was no competing or any little children left behind, making it really oriented to the younger children, she said. The number of entries in the hall


TWO BUNNIES show off their style at the first-ever fashion show. exhibits looked to be about the same as last year, even with more categories, which was a bit of a surprise. “I thought there would be way more. I think people have to get used

to the fact that’s what you do is put your produce and flowers in. “You never know. You don’t have to be the master gardener to win a prize,” said Ross.

Wednesday, September 18, 2013  Terrace Standard

City sets out tax exemption list THRIFT stores that bring in money through retail sales and organizations who receive federal and provincial grants won’t face being struck from the city’s property tax exemption list. The decision reached by council Sept. 9 follows a move endorsed by council in August to review its exemption policy, including whether non profits that sell goods should qualify. “I would hate to think that we are so low on funds that we have to skim back off the very poorest people in our society,” city councillor Marylin Davies said during debate on the issue. “I would hate to see us take money from thrift stores. And I don’t mean junk stores.” This year two organizations that bring in money though the sale of goods were discussed, the Salvation Army and the Women’s Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Store. City finance director Ron Bowles told council that money from the thrift store supports Mills Memorial Hospital and that the Salvation Army thrift store is part of the church with the same name. “They are well used, the clientele coming through really need those services, and I think it would be unfair if we were to take that exemption away,” city councillor Brian Downie said, adding that the women’s hospital auxiliary is volunteer run. Three other nonprofit organizations were also put under the microscope. According to Bowles, because the Terrace and District Community Services Society (TDCSS), Ksan House Society, and the Terrace Child Development Centre are “almost fully funded by the provincial and federal government” and for this reason don’t meet “the mandate of the municipal government” he had them highlighted as potentials cuts. “They don’t really have a financial need,” Bowles said. Councillor Bruce Bidgood interjected that Bowles’ definition of financial need was too vague. “It is a slippery

slope,” Bowles said. “These are great organizations but there are many in town who are also great, so it’s reasonable to expect there will be lots of applications next year.”

While council didn’t seem to have a problem with the exemption list, the 2014 Tax Exemption Bylaw still needs to be formally adopted. Tenyear exemptions, mainly to churches, have

already been granted. Council will include the airport society on that list in the future. Organizations on the yearly tax exemption include the tourist information centre, Terrace Curling

Association, the hospital auxiliary, Terrace Elks, Terrace Child Development Centre, Terrace Child Development Centre, Kermode Friendship Society, K’San House Society,

the Terrace Economic Development Authority, the All Nations Centre owned by the Seventh Day Adventist Church, Terrace Beautification Society, Terrace Little Theatre Society, Salva-

tion Army, My Recreational Mountain Co-op and the TDCSS which is a new applicant this year. The Kermode Friendship Centre, which was on the list last year, did not apply.
