Public access a big priority Cameron Orr The large scale projects with eyes on Kitimat has at least one resident concerned that the town may start losing its public access to many of its assets. Michael Langegger, member of the local Rod and Gun and regional president of the BC Wildlife Federation, wrote and presented to Kitimat Council, speaking to concerns he’s seen where Kitimat’s backcountry seems to be falling away from residents and into the control of large companies. He started off talking about the loss of access to the Kitimat estuary, but his letter included other access, including Bish Forest Service Road and the Wedeene Forest Service Road. “We’re really a coastal community with no ocean access outside of MK Bay Marina,” he said. Langegger said LNG developments are meaning a lot of restricted road access as well. He was met with a company roadblock while down Wedeene Forest Service Road, he said. “One of the things I’d like Mayor and Council to address and learn from the past is not to end up with the situation like we have with Rio Tinto having all this private property and denying access to the public,” he said. “I think we’re really in a crossroads now where we can entrench our access with citizens in the community.” Through his letter to council he points to Rio Tinto’s acquisition of Eurocan’s former haul roads, which stifled access to the estuary, as well as Apache and Chevron’s closure of Bish Forest Service Road, which he said has had some consultation but the closure has lasted nearly a year, which has Langegger worried. “Is blasting truly occurring in this area currently, or has this been used to restrict public access under the guise of public safety?” he wrote. He said forest service road closures is affecting trap lines in the area, one of which he uses himself, under an agreement with a Haisla woman. Even Radley Park didn’t escape Langegger’s gaze, noting unsubstantiated rumours that workers in town have effectively taken up residency in the park. Staff didn’t immediately respond to that point. His letter wasn’t lost on councillors though, all of whom agreed public access was a major concern and focus for their work. “Mayor and council are very concerned about the lack of waterfront we have access to and we’re trying very hard to find some way to access that,” said Mayor Joanne Monaghan. Phil Germuth said that they’re committed to working with proponents and citizens in emphasizing that public access is still needed.

Keep critical eye on eviction notices A poverty law advocate based in Terrace, but whom covers the Kitimat area as well, said she’s seeing a lot of housing files coming out of Kitimat in the past months. Stacey Tyers, who works with the Terrace District Community Services Society, said 70 to 80 per cent of her housing-related files relate to Kitimat, and she’s seeing a growing number of improper evictions. And she has great concern about what’s happening in town and urges people to be critical of eviction notices. “Most of them are not valid evictions,” she said. “It’s becoming problematic.” But she also thinks that it’s nothing sinister or vindictive that she suspects is pushing landlords in town to giving illegal notices, but merely some misinformation about

their abilities as landlords. For instance some may not know you can’t evict people on anticipation of selling a property, she said. Evictions can only come after a sale and the new owners have requested that action. Her own general advice is, as best as you can, don’t give anyone a reason to evict you. Also never ignore an eviction notice, whether you think it’s improper or not, and seek out advice. According to Sandra Steilo, communications for B.C.’s housing ministry, residents are protected under the Residential Tenancy Act as long as they have signed a tenancy agreement. A landlord must provide written notice of eviction using an approved form to end a tenancy, Steilo continues.

“Most of them are not valid evictions...It’s becoming problematic.” Listing the available notices a landlord can use, she said a two-month notice can be given “for landlord’s use of property.” This applies when the landlord plans to move in, do major repairs, convert the unit or has sold the property and the new owner, or a close family member intends to live in the rental unit.” Ten day and one month notices are also allowed under certain conditions. Kitimat has its own Housing Resource Worker, Anne Moyls, who recently began her work under the Kitimat Housing Resource Project. She’s a local point of contact for people with housing

concerns, and helps people figure out housing options. “I really strategize solutions based on the people who are coming in and sometimes they have solutions in their extended-world that they’re not aware of,” she said. “It’s never bleak. I’m an eternal optimist until all avenues have been exhausted.” Housing has certainly had its crunch over the year with record low vacancy rates. The Kitimat Housing Committee also recently heard of an eviction notice to tenants on the two floors of the North Star Inn, which gave month-tomonth lease holders until October 31 to leave. Residents were given the notice through a letter from building owner James Thom, who wrote that he could no longer afford to maintain the two floors. Continued on page 3

KITIMAT STATS

WEATHER WATCH Sept Sept Sept Sept Sept Sept Sept

Just after midnight on September 27, power was knocked out to 526 BC Hydro customers in Kitimat, the company reports. A motor vehicle accident on Columbia Avenue was cited as the cause of the outage which took power out for the majority of the day. Kitimat RCMP say alcohol and speed are considered factors so far in their investigation, and that the power pole was essentially hanging by the wires after the incident. The driver of the vehicle was airlifted to Victoria in critical but stable condition, while a passenger walked away relatively unharmed, after being freed with the jaws of life.

“Prince Rupert’s Ridley Island is already serviced by CN tracks ... the concept would require the construction of an oil trans-loading facility in Prince Rupert, which does not currently exist.” While CN has stated the meeting in question did not address any particular project, Prince Rupert Port Authority manager of

LOCAL BRIEFS

The students of Mount Elizabeth Secondary School set off on the annual Terry Fox Run. The entire school took part in the annual fundraiser for cancer research, but their fundraising didn’t end just with the run. The day before, students blared Justin Bieber music over the intercom during the recess and lunch breaks, and students would only get a reprieve once $100 was collected, also to go towards the Terry Fox charity.

Banff film The Kitimat Search and Rescue Society is again hosting the annual Banff Mountain Film Festival World tour 2013, at Mount Elizabeth Theatre. The show is set for October 12 at 7 p.m. The event is a fundraiser for Kitimat Search and Rescue. During last year’s film fest in Kitimat participants got a close look into the need for KSAR to get these funds, when many of the members were called away from the fundraiser for a rescue on Mount Elizabeth. People can call Kelly at 250-6324030 if they would like more information about the event.

van Dyk Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipelines has hired away the District of New Hazelton administrator. Donny van Dyk is now working for Enbridge as its manager of coastal stakeholder relations and will be based in Kitimat. He’s worked for the District of New Hazelton for four years. van Dyk has been active politically within the BC Liberal party and its youth wing. He’s also been the president of the BC Liberal Skeena constituency association and, in the 2009 provincial election, was unsuccessful in a bid to unseat NDP incumbent Robin Austin to become the MLA for Skeena. van Dyk is also a provincial government appointee to the board of Northwest Community College. “I will be working exclusively on the Northern Gateway project,” van Dyk said of his new job. “I will meet with communities in the northwest and answer any questions people and organizations have...”

On bylaws and business friendliness Cameron Orr A public hearing on a proposed change to the C2 Zone is set for October 21, which would add ‘Personal Service Shop’ to the list of definitions of approved use. But the approach of council to the bylaw amendment — which came to their attention after a business owner indicated they want to open a tattoo parlour in Nechako Centre — had some split over being thorough versus the impression of feet dragging for local businesses. That debate came after Rob Goffinet moved for only first reading of the bylaw rather than the recommended first and second. Goffinet admitted he was acting cautious, but his reasoning was he wanted some extra time to have questions answered from staff about the change that he had no time to answer earlier, having been away at the Union of BC Municipalities conference with the majority of council. Two readings of a bylaw must be passed before council can hold a public hearing,

which allows public input before a third reading and final adoption. Nechako Centre, which is zoned C2, does not have definitions for Personal Service Shop. The proposed wording for the addition would be “a business where the sale of retail goods is only an accessory to the provision of services related to the care and appearance of the body or the cleaning and repair of personal affects.” It goes on to list health clubs, gyms, tattoo and piercing studios and barber shops as examples of a personal service shop. Personal Service Shops do exist in the C1 City Centre Zone, so is not entirely foreign to the town. Phil Germuth worried that only passing first reading, while not necessarily meaning the process slows town, could create a bad impression. “There’s such a minor difference between what this business is proposing and I don’t want to be seen as restricting business,” he said.

Councillors can still vote for second reading at a prior council meeting ahead of the October 21 hearing, which will take place at the start of a regular council meeting. “I would like us to pass second reading tonight and move this along as quickly as possible. By not passing second reading I’m feeling like we’re putting out there that we may be possibly slowing this down and not expediting this as quickly as possible for such a minor change to the bylaw.” Mario Feldhoff however did believe the amendment was substantial, but did say the proposal did make sense. That said, he was interested in hearing from the Advisory Planning Commission on the matter. The APC, as part of council’s motion, has been referred the application for their own comment. “I think this will work out,” he said, noting decisions won’t come any later based on the motion as presented. The motion for the first reading passed unanimously.

Tenancy Continued from page 1 Thom wouldn’t say publicly what sort of costs he was facing. On this, Tyers had expressed concern that the notice might not have met requirements under the Residential Tenancy Act, because she didn’t recognize building maintenance as a cause for eviction. “‘I can’t afford to continue running these floors’ is not something that is listed as a reason for eviction,” she said, referring to the Residential Tenancy Act. According to Sandra Steilo, communications for B.C.’s housing ministry, residents in a hotel can be protected under the Residential Tenancy Act if the hotel is their primary residence and they have signed a tenancy agreement. Thom told the Sentinel though that the six people who were affected by the notice have all found places to live now.

“They were given their notice but it doesn’t matter on that part anyway because they’ve got rooms,” he said, saying that people were either leaving town or had found places to stay in town. “If you find them rooms that’s all that matters, so it doesn’t matter what was posted,” he said, noting that he personally made sure they all had a new place to live. He said he expects renovations to take place on those floors now, but he’s not entirely sure what will take place until the deal finalizes on the sale of the building from the prospective buyers on November 7. Back to Moyls and Tyers, getting people the resources to handle housing issues is what theydo every week, and people are encouraged to contact them with any housing questions. Moyls can be reached at 250-639-6065. Tyers said she prefers e-mail, and can by reached at staceytyers@tdcss.ca.

Lesser of two evils I’m starting to think pipeline opposition has had it all wrong right from the start. As much as I’ve quietly been unsure what the eventual fallout would be from such strong opposition to pipeline development in B.C., the answer is beginning to materialize. This week I’ve been reading about oil by rail, following a report released by Greenpeace that CN Rail may be looking at delivering oil to Prince Rupert in the same quantity that the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline would deliver to Kitimat. In this particular case though it’s not Enbridge but Nexen which is involved in the research into oil by rail to Rupert. But Greenpeace researcher Keith Stewart said in Canadian Press reports that it appears to look like a Plan B in case Northern Gateway doesn’t go through. This has me thinking to myself if I’d rather my house had a rail line through the backyard or a buried pipeline. A pipeline wins that question by a long shot. The stiff opposition to pipelines has now seemingly gotten oil companies looking more at rail than pipeline. Rail is cheaper to develop (since the rails are already there), you don’t need the intensive environmental permitting to ship oil like with pipeline construction, and clearly they can just about match the capacity of other ‘troubling’ pipelines. Meanwhile, CN Rail has been significantly growing its oil shipments company-wide, based on numbers I received from the company this past March. Not to the west coast yet, though, but they moved 30,000 car loads in 2012, versus just 5,000 in 2011. They think they can double that in 2013. So while people have been saying ‘no to oil’, trains have been quietly stepping up their transport this whole time. (Again, not yet through this area.) Clearly oil will get out of Alberta somehow. So perhaps the question should never have been “do we want pipelines or not” but rather “how can we do this better, to get better benefit?” Because I’d argue that the benefits we’d see from a pipeline to Kitimat is greater than we’d see with more trains. Especially if Prince Rupert gets the lions share of that transport. If the option is going to be pipelines or trains, lets change the narrative on pipelines from ‘no oil’ to ‘responsible transport.’ We absolutely should be holding companies to a high commitment of safety and economic benefit. They can’t have free reign through the wilderness, that’s for sure. Regulations and, most importantly, enforcement is a must. So lets ask for that, instead of turning our backs to the whole notion of oil pipelines entirely while train whistles blow in the distance.

Blackberry CEO gets a plum deal Under Miscellaneous

I readily admit that I am often at a loss watching the machinations of big businesses like long-beleaguered Waterloo, Ont. company, BlackBerry. I also admit to a morbid fascination with following its by Allan Hewitson decline and possibly its fall. And possibly, after that its re-emergence ahewitson@telus.net with another millionaire from the existing board at its helm.

chute payout if he sells the company and loses his job as a result. But what is surprising about Heins’ termination payout is how drastically it changed in less than a year. In 2012, it was reported that Heins would have received up to $21 million in a “double trigger” payout if the company had been acquired and he was terminated as CEO. But in 2013, that payout suddenly became worth $56 million. Published reports said shareholders voted in favour of the change. To me, that gave Heins a considerable incentive to sell the company rather than turn it around on his own. His regular compensation totals $9 million a year, so nearly five years’ salary seems like quite an incentive to get a sale done. Blackberry’s new Z10 phone was received well critically but poorly by the real criteria for success, over the counter. An inventory “loss” was considered the major reason for the horrible quarterly dip in earnings. The previously-mentioned multibillion dollar takeover of BlackBerry by one of its own largest shareholders is not a done deal. It has to survive some bumps along the way, say some smart phone business analysts. Continued on page 5

Airing concerns (Due to the length of this letter, we have opted to run it in two parts, even though it was submitted to us as a single document. We’ll run the remainder next week.) Dear Sir, To those of you that are interested, for the last 10 years I have been thinking about certain aspects of our community and listing them with attached comments, questions and concerns. I would like to relist them so they are available once again for review and/or discussion: A) Cablecar stuff: -Cablecar residents pay same taxes as other Kitimatians, but have no municipal lawns or flower beds, therefore no costs for yearly planting, lawn maintenance (cutting) and brushing. Also they have a minimum of street lights (18 each) even though our bear problems are significant. They have no sidewalks to maintain and clear of snow, and get limited snow removal as compared to town, where streets are immediately windrowed and blown. Ours are graded to the side and sometimes left for weeks without being blown. With no sidewalks this is a major safety concern, both for vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Cablecar also has no sewage system to maintain, all residents are on septic fields and must pay for pumping.

Blackberry

Continued from page 1 A consortium led by Canadian investment firm Fairfax Financial is moving ahead with the deal worth US$4.7-billion. Under the deal the consortium will acquire all of the outstanding shares of BlackBerry not held by Torontobased Fairfax. Perhaps the best I can say is, if the sale is completed

There are no parks or playgrounds. There is no decent bus service, or vehicle storage and parking areas, only at the bus stop for those that need a ride because they live a kilometer or more away or are ill. There is no rainwater drainage systems to maintain, other than weed whack a few ditches each summer. Cablecar suffers from noise pollution from the rifle range. The neighbourhood is also limited to one entrance that would quickly be overburdened in the case of an emergency evacuation, ie: forest fire. B) Highway stuff: Review and change highway speeds to 80 km/hr from snowflake area to Forest Avenue. Turn-off lane for north side of Cablecar access, as well as the land fill. Kiosk installation for: weather protection, local paper distribution, garbage receptacle, bulletin board, salt and sand, etc. Winter road conditions sign illogically placed by Cablecar entrance. Chain up location north of cemetery hill. Road access to river for drift boats and associated vehicles and trailers along main highway. Pull off at landfill for access to future ‘Eagle Walk’. To be continued Oct.9 Sincerely, Kelly Smith

BlackBerry will remain Canadian owned. After a trading halt when the offer was announced, share value jumped to C$9.25 in Toronto and US$9.03 on the Nasdaq market in the United States. Goodness knows what it is this week. So maybe that’s the answer to why the shareholders are prepared to give a “failing”

CEO such a wonderful golden parachute. Not so good news I would guess for laid-off employees and to those who may potentially be laid off in the future. Until then, BlackBerry is allowed to actively solicit and evaluate rival offers. Thus, again, the machinations of big business remain beyond me.

Employees meet employers here…

Kitimat makes top 100 ‘neighbourhood’ list Cameron Orr Journalists and researchers for Canadian Real Estate Wealth Magazine have compiled a list of the top 100 ‘neighbourhoods’ in Canada which are “set to lead the country in growth.” Kitimat as a whole was placed into the top 100 neighbourhoods to invest. The list includes communities from coast to coast, and includes Terrace among those top 100. The full results of their findings was published on September 30 in their magazine. The report found a number of small towns made the list as well, including Bedford, Halifax and Cold Lake, Alberta. Researchers used a number of data to compile the list, including population, median price, price growth over 12 months, vacancy rate, infrastructure and cash flow. The magazine used 2011 population levels of 8,335, noting it was a -7.3 per cent growth rate. The average house price, they found using data from Brookfield RPS, was $222,070. The findings from Real Estate Wealth was supported by Re/ Max and Verico Financial Services. Manuel Leite, the managing broker for Kitimat’s Re/Max office, speaks cautiously about Kitimat’s investment potential, careful not to outright say it’s a sure-fire investment market, but he says there’s definitely been movement from investors in town. “I’m not too surprised [at the report] because we know a lot of activity has been going on in town,” he said. But that said, “I’m very cautious when I

properties were typically selling to big companies with contracts for local construction projects like the Rio Tinto Alcan modernization. Of course investors come in all shapes and sizes and there are many individual investors as well.

Ice Demons finish third in Challenge Cup A loss to Smithers, a win to the Kings Shaun Thomas The Kitimat Ice Demons finished third in the Northern Challenge Cup in Prince Rupert on Sept. 20 and 21, coming away with a win and a loss. The Demons faced off with the defending CIHL champion Smithers Steelheads on Friday night, and found themselves down early. Smithers jumped out to a 3-0 lead within six minutes of the first on goals by Mark Arnold, Adam Devries and Darryl Young. But Kitimat started to make its come back when the Demon’s Nick Markowsky picked up a loose puck and put it over the glove of Tyler Perreault with 8:44 to play, and Derek Delisser put a pass across the crease over Perreault’s blocker late in the first to pull within one through one period. The comeback was complete when Kitimat’s Derek Wakita put

home the loose puck in front to tie things up at three early in the second. Mark Arnold put a backhand over the pad of Brett Vilness with 8:33 to play to pull ahead again, but Kitimat’s Ben Rumley responded with 4:42 to play, cutting across the crease and going high glove side. The period ended 4-4. In the third, however, the Steelheads put the game away when Brad Goss gave Smithers the lead and Darryl Young added the empty netter to give Smithers the 6-4 win. On Saturday, playing in the consolation game, the Demons handily defeated the Terrace River Kings in a game that included 130 minutes in penalties. Ben Rumley opened the scoring just 2:14 into the game, though the Kings’ Chris Brown put one past Tom Mildenberger less than three minutes

later to tie things up. But from there the Demons would shut down the Terrace offence. Kyle Boudreautt deked out Dawson Kluss and found the back of the net with 6:26 to play to pull Kitimat ahead, and with just one second left on the clock Joel Findlay put home a breakaway glove-side wrister to put the Demons up 3-1. The second saw plenty of penalties and no scoring, but the Demons put the game out of reach early in the third when Ian Coleman put away a gloveside backhander with 16:20 on the clock and, less than a minute later, Wade Masch found a loose puck in front and put it past Kluss to give Kitimat the 5-1 win. Meanwhile the Smithers Steelheads plowed ahead to claim the Challenge Cup for the weekend, their second straight victory in the tournament.

While in Prince Rupert on September 20 and 21, the Kitimat Ice Demons placed third during the Northern Challenge Cup Tournament. The Demons lost one game to the Steelheads but earned a victory later against the River Kings.

This proposed project would see Chevron excavate marine clay from the Kitimat LNG construction site at Bish Cove and work closely with the Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans to deposit this natural material in specific locations in Clio Bay. The clay will cap-off decaying wood debris left by historic log booming operations that has accumulated on the bottom of Clio Bay, damaging the Bay’s natural ecosystem. A key goal of the project is to restore natural marine life populations in Clio Bay.
