The City of Prince Rupert has torn a local family apart. Dog owners Katherine and Ray Spong say Prince Rupert is a “pet-unfriendly town” after being forced to give up one of their four dogs after being denied the necessary permit from City Hall to keep the dog at home. The City of Prince Rupert’s - Katherine Spong dog control bylaw states “the number of dogs is limited to a maximum of three within any household”. Anyone exceeding the maximum can apply for a kennel licence, provided their household is permitted to do so within th municipal zoning bylaw and Official Community Plan bylaw, and complies with any other municipal bylaw as required.

Another Alberta energy giant may be turning its eyes to the North Coast as a means of getting its product to Asian markets. AltaGas Ltd. has purchased 11 acres of waterfront property near Wainwright Basin from the District of Port Edward for $625,000. The company has publicly spoken about plans to export two million tonnes of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) per year by 2017 and 700,000 tonnes of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) per year by 2017. The AltaGas-owned Pacific Northern Gas pipeline is a key component of the BC LNG proposal in Kitimat. While he said nothing

“AltaGas is still assessing potential uses for this land.” - Fred Cheney is certain about the proposed propane export facility, which would see the gas shipped by rail, AltaGas senior communications advisor Fred Cheney confirmed the company is looking to the region for both projects. “We are definitely looking into northwestern B.C. as opposed to the Lower Mainland. We are looking into sites in that area, but it is still very preliminary ... we are still conducting

sustainability and feasibility studies for any project,” he said, noting more information will be forthcoming. “As we move forward, we have committed to working with government, First Nations and other stakeholders that are involved ... we try to be as transparent with all stakeholders as we can. If we see sites we view as viable for construction for those facilities we will be letting people know.” However, Cheney said those plans may not necessarily involve the land purchased from Port Edward. “AltaGas is still assessing potential uses for this land,” he said. While LNG is transported by pipeline, propane would arrive to the North Coast via rail.

Owners ready to live apart to keep Lily home LILY from Page A1 At the end of September, following a complaint, Prince Rupert’s city bylaw officer contacted the Spongs saying the city was going to levy fines or impound one of the dogs. The couple was willing to pay for a kennel licence to keep all their dogs at home, but were denied that request. Katherine said she believes the four dog maximum should be considered case-by-case, and believes the person that complained did so maliciously. “The city has a duty to the citizens of course, but the bylaw is to protect the helpless too. However, when a complaint is malicious, the city must do its due diligence, use local resources to verify the situation and then work with the people involved ... maybe they just love dogs and have made the sacrifice to give a needy dog a new life in a loving home,” she said. Katherine said her and her husband have the resources and knowledge to manage a fourmember pack, and have no intentions of getting more pets. The couple has been violating the bylaw since September 2011 when they took in a Karelian Bear Dog they named Lily. The Spongs found Lily abandoned in a remote location when she was five or six months old. After consideration, the couple decided Lily was the most self-reliant of their pets. “We moved Lily out of town immediately. All of our dogs area adopted and most are special needs. Lily is the dog we felt could handle the separation,” Katherine said. “The City of Prince Rupert has ripped our

“The pack is our family.” - Katherine Spong family apart.” Katherine said people who take on a dog or multiple dogs are usually caring and compassionate, with the exception of backyard breeders and puppy mills. The couple said they have the resources and experience to manage four dog. Katherine said none of the Spongs’ dogs are vicious, and they have never ran at-large in the city or caused any trouble. “They are happy, friendly, well-cared for, wellexercised and much loved house dogs,” she said. “We don’t have kids so the pack is our family. Not everyone can do this, nor do they have the desire to. That’s okay too, but the point is it is work and you must be committed.” Ray met with Prince Rupert Mayor Jack Mussallem last week, and said he was sympathetic toward the situation, but said there is nothing the Spongs can do. The couple is planning to live separately and continue their efforts to get their family all under one roof. Katherine said the couple will be petitioning council to amend the current kennel licence policy. The City of Prince Rupert’s Department of ByLaw Enforcement did not immediately respond to requests for comment by the Northern View.

Rupert a town “on the move”, say ministers Ministers Stone, Wat tour town BY SHAUN THOMAS PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

Prince Rupert has a bright future as Canada’s gateway to Asia, said two provincial ministers who visited town last Wednesday. Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Todd Stone began the day with a helicopter tour of industrial activity in the region, led by Prince Rupert Port Authority president and CEO Don Krusel, and said he was very impressed with what is already underway. “Whether you are looking at container expansion, which is significant, bulk expansion, the LNG opportunities, Prince Rupert has got it all right now. This is an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for this community and for all of British Columbia,” he said, noting the visit was the kick-off event for a crossprovince conversation about the Pacific Gateway. “One cannot help but be incredibly excited when you fly over Prince Rupert, especially on a glorious day like today, to really appreciate the scope of what is happening. This is a community that is on the move. This is a community where you can feel the buzz when you arrive, and you can see the activity from the air in a way you never could from the ground.”

“One cannot help but be incredibly excited.” - Todd Stone Stone was joined at the media event by Minister of International Trade and Minister Responsible for the Asia Pacific Strategy Teresa Wat, who said growth in the energy industry will remain high given what is happening overseas. “There is a huge demand for clean energy in Asia, particularly in Japan, China and Korea. Japan had the terrible earthquake a few years ago and after the earthquake, they found out they cannot rely on nuclear plants for electrical generation. That is why they have decided to switch all of their power generation to natural gas, and the government and their people have been talking to our government hoping that we can provide the supply for them in the decades to come,” she said. “In China, the central government has already decided in 20 years time they are going to get rid of coal generated power. What can replace coal? That would be

natural gas, and that is why there is a huge demand in China for our LNG.” For his part, Krusel said the visit by two provincial ministers to kick off a gateway tour shows Prince Rupert has arrived. “I think that really reflects how Prince Rupert is on the map of both the political group here in British Columbia, but we have also had ministers of the federal crown here recently. A lot of eyes are on this gateway. Prince Rupert is recognized now, not only in British Columbia and Canada but around the world, as the

gateway for the expansion of traffic through the west coast of North America ... having the two ministers here today really demonstrates the high profile that Prince Rupert is playing on the international market,” he said, noting the port will be ready to meet the demand. “We are planning for the growth. The Prince Rupert Port Authority has a plan ... as a result of that good planning, a number of major projects, major developments and new industries, are going to be able to be located here in Prince Rupert.”

Get involved in your city

S

tanding up in public and stating your opposition or support for something is not necessarily an easy thing to do. Taking a stand one way or another opens you up to questions, criticism and, in some cases, flat out attacks on your position and your beliefs. In some cases, taking a stand has led to some significant consequences for those involved. Let’s face it, putting your name out there saying so-and-so is right or so-and-so is wrong takes some gumption, and those who do it are to be commended. Too often nowadays, people hide behind the veil of anonymity when stating their position, or simply tell their concerns to anyone who will listen - except Shaun Thomas for the people who can actually do something about it. Still others watch from the sidelines, afraid to jump into the discussion because of possible repercussions, and then complain once the time to have a say has passed. But making your voice heard, particularly to those who are elected to represent you, is a critical piece of making democracy work. If you don’t like something elected officials are doing, you need to step up and let them know. They work for you and your tax dollars pay their wages. They are accountable to you, not the other way around. And so I will offer a tip of the hat to the Rowse, Warren and Kristmanson families. They found out something they didn’t agree with was happening and they, for lack of a better term, mobilized. From meetings with the mayor and city manager to talking to the press to calling out the city at a public meeting of council, the group pulled no punches when it came to offering up their thoughts on the development of Westview Park. It is something that I would like to see more people do when it comes to municipal affairs, because for too long council has been met with apathy. Seeing the benches of the council chambers filled and seeing people take to the mic to question council is something that should happen a lot more often than it does.

You shouldn’t either, offence to keep the court time to a minimum. and here are a few reasons why. Both of these notions have the same obvious Let me start by saying I’ve been calling for flaws.

The petition does not propose legalization.

This marijuana licences to a free-market system of commercial would create a loophole in the federal drug law. producers. Local politicians tore a strip off Health Canada So what would that do? It would protect otherwise innocent officials at their recent convention, after years of warnings that customers of the current illegal marijuana trade, while leaving federal licences were scattered at unknown locations, often used the criminal distribution business in place. as fronts for larger grow-ops.

Letters to the editor

Leave Westview a park

Editor: After reading the articles Homeowners bring Atlin Ave. development concerns to Prince Rupert council and City of Prince Rupert’s development plans come under fire, I feel compelled to write this letter. As a former born and raised Rupertite of 46 years, I am in total agreement with the Warren, Rowse, and Kristmanson families, plus other residents standing opposed to residential developement in Westview Park. I’m hoping to jog resident’s memories of a news article written perhaps 10 to 15 years ago. The author wrote about the significance of Westview Park’s rare pristine qualities, dense tree growth, lush vegetation and animal species variety. Those concerned about Westview Park being changed to a residential area have pointed out that the first city survey in 1909 recognized this area as a park, though this remarkable gem has been in existence for much longer! There are so many unkempt and unsightly buildings and vacant land dotted all throughout Prince Rupert, why would anyone even consider tearing up an eco-forest? Just recently, condemned apartment buildings were demolished on 10th Avenue East. Prior to that, King Edward school was torn down. Sadly - Kanata, Seal Cove and Westview schools all sit empty. These are all conveniently situated near to or right on city bus routes. I’m lucky enough to have many fond childhood memories of the old CN Park that stood right along the waterfront.   One of my friends once made a comment about what a magnificent sight CN Park would have been for tourists arriving on cruise ships entering the harbour. Maybe a mural of what once was and will never be again can be

depicted on the back side of the Rupert Square Mall! On the City of Prince Rupert website - mayor and council - is the tagline: ‘Creating a better place to live’. Reading their biographies, city council members are comprised of born-andraised Rupertites with the remainder having residency ranging between 20 to 56 years. Do city council members ever consider the errors of their predecessors (refer to CN Park paragraph)? Take a vested interest in what your elected city council members are considering or planning to do on your behalf. Monthly council meetings are open to the public; they’re broadcasted (tv and internet), agendas are available, news articles are printed. Rupertites need to stand up, speak out, band together and talk with one another over important issues at hand that affect not only current resident’s quality of life but future generations as well. My husband, Michael, is a born and raised Amsterdamer who has visited Prince Rupert three times. He was totally captivated by the greeness, nature, wildlife and the friendly people of Pr. Rupert. We hope to see positive changes when we return. Isabel and Michael de Kock Amsterdam NL

Editor: As a resident of Prince Rupert I find it hard to believe how some of the homeless people are being treated. A lot of them have little to no family, and if they do, where are they while a member of their family fights their addictions? I am also appalled by the talk that is circulating our small community. One cab driver took some residents home last night (Oct. 1) and on their way to the destination they passed the Raffles Inn where an emergency took place. There were ambulance and fire trucks outside, the cab driver’s response: “maybe someone killed themselves

again” and he laughed! I mean seriously? The people out here on our streets are human beings just like everyone else! These people that have lost their lives to addiction don’t deserve less sympathy because they were what people label them as! Wake up Rupert! This is all happening right smack in front of us! Why judge someone by the way they dress or the life style that they choose? Point is, they are human beings just like everyone else and deserve a little more sympathy than what they are getting!

All vessel movements involve a BC Coast Pilot aboard the ship and tug support when docking or departing berths.

Partnership is the key to safe vessel transits

A

RE:PORT

paramount role in any worldclass port is that of Harbour Master. This is the team that leads the collaborative efforts for ensuring the safety of navigation and the security of operations within the harbour limits. The Prince Rupert Port Authority’s Harbour Master’s team is working closely with its many partners to coordinate the 450+ vessel calls expected in 2013. In this column we’ve looked at the roles played by each of those partners. It’s time to put it all together to follow a commercial vessel from sea to terminal. A full 96 hours prior to arrival in Prince Rupert, Transport Canada requires a report from an inbound ship. This report lists its last ten ports of call, validates its security clearance certificate, and guarantees there are no major mechanical issues or deficiencies with the vessel. At the same time, Canadian Coast Guard’s Marine Communications and Traffic Services (MCTS) begins tracking that vessel, and a ship’s agent in Prince Rupert is contracted to represent the interests of the vessel while it is in our waters. At 48 hours prior to arrival, the Port Authority adds another layer of safety and security. It begins to track the approaching vessel through the Port Security Operations Centre (PSOC). PSOC monitors the vessel using the electronic Automatic Identification System (AIS), supplemented by cameras that visually track ship movements within harbour limits. The security administered by PSOC is conducted in collaboration with Canada Border Services Agency and the RCMP, and is manned 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. When the commercial ship reaches the marine pilot station at Triple Island, it is boarded by a BC Coast Pilot. The pilot meets with the ship’s captain on the bridge, completes a team briefing with the bridge staff and assumes navigational control. If the vessel is going to anchor in the harbour to await loading at a terminal, the Harbour Master’s team will assign and communicate which of the 30 anchorage positions the ship will use. If the vessel is going directly to a terminal berth, support from the tugs of SMIT Marine will be mobilizing around this time. This tug service is ordered by the ship’s agent, but the number and type of tugs required for safe navigation and docking can be improved at the discretion of the BC Coast Pilot and the captain of the ship, as they consider factors that include wind, tide, current and ship specifications. Tugs typically join inbound ships in the vicinity of the Kinahan Islands. Vessels proceeding to the outer harbour berths at Ridley Island are escorted by tugs and under the Pilot’s control are maneuvered to berth. Container ships inbound for the inner harbour have a tug tethered to the stern of the ship. When a tug is tethered, it attaches itself by a line or steel wire rope and is able to provide direct control, keeping the big vessel safe and on course. Once the ship is approaching a terminal berth, a smaller tug will join in and assist in docking by pushing against the bow of the ship. From the time the first tug joins, the tug operators and the BC Coast Pilot are in constant communication to coordinate the speed, timing and force used to gently bring the ship safely alongside the terminal. The successful transit of commercial vessels in and out of the Port of Prince Rupert happens every day. It’s the result of teamwork by many dedicated, professional port partners and stakeholders.

Realty Westview opponents grill council sales strong By Shaun Thomas

PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

By Shaun Thomas PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

Real estate sales in Prince Rupert continue to climb, with more than 200 properties being sold through the first three quarters of 2013. A total of 206 properties worth $43.4 million sold in Prince Rupert by the end of September, up 82 properties and $23.2 million from 2012 figures. Included in that figure are 154 single family homes with a median selling price $180,000 and an average selling price of $196,215. Those numbers are also well up from 2012, where 98 single family homes sold for an average of $193.691. “It’s a bull market. House sales are up 57 per cent year-to-date ... I don’t see any reason why it would not continue. Our office is busy and there is a steady supply of buyers and sellers,” said Victor Prystay with Royal LePage Prince Rupert, noting there is also a difference in what is being sold. “It is evolving into a seller’s market, but I don’t think it is a hard seller’s market yet. The houses that are under $200,000 are being picked up.... if you look at the inventory in the $150,000 to $200,000 range, it is getting pretty sparse.” Although that average selling price is up significantly, Prince Rupert is well below other northwest communities when it comes to the average selling price. The average price of a home in Smithers is $253,075, the average price in Terrace is $250,157 and the average price in Kitimat jumped from $175,959 in the first nine months of 2012 to $230,716 during the same time period this year.

Atlin Ave. homeowners who oppose the development of Westview Park brought their concerns to city council on Sept. 30, asking councillors why the idea was being pursued at all. Bob Warren, Judy Warren, Charlotte Rowse and Bill Kristmanson took advantage of the Committee of the Whole public question period to ask council questions on a wide range of topics related to the development, including why the public notice didn’t mention the area proposed for development is park land and how it plans to address the Blue Heron rookery found at the site. “These notices are put out with legal requirements in mind, and I am not sure the city planner considers Westview a park ... I believe the city has gone out and had someone identify where the nests are and what the setback requirements to be considered are. Should the city proceed, the setbacks would be considered with the rezoning,” said Mayor Jack Mussallem in response to those particular questions, while encouraging the group to make their voices heard at the Oct. 22 public meeting on the matter. “I think on Oct. 22, all of your questions will be answered. If they are not, you can contact myself or [city manager] Mr. Long.” Mayor Mussallem noted the development is being looked at to create housing that can accommodate retirement age residents who don’t

need a large house and don’t want to do maintenance, such as mowing the lawn. However, Rowse said that argument doesn’t make sense. “If I want to move into a condo as a senior, I want to be downtown where I don’t need a vehicle to get around ... this was a crazy idea,” she said. “It is going to be a park and it should stay a park.” Following the question period, councillors thanked the group for coming and weighed in with their thoughts on the proposal. “I am not in favour of condos in that area, but I did favour re-development of some of that area ... what that looks like in the end is something we will have to decide,” said Councillor Gina Garon. “I really, really value the parks we have in Prince Rupert. As someone who

grew up in Prince Rupert, we need to keep what we do have because we have sacrificed a lot in the past years,” added Councillor Judy Carlick – Pearson. Other councillors said that they too would be looking for more information from the Oct. 22 meeting. “We didn’t know some of the information brought forward tonight ... we were looking at this area to put more on the tax role, but if there is information that points otherwise we will consider that when making the final decision because a final decision has not been made,” said Councillor Anna Ashley. “There is some information that needs to come to the meeting .... I have also heard from citizens that the sewer lines on Atlin and Graham could not handle a large influx of new lines,” said Councillor Joy Thorkelson.

Cannery seeks UNESCO title

www.thenorthernview.com

Brooks family hires private investigators BY MARTINA PERRY PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

BY SHAUN THOMAS PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

North Pacific Cannery may soon be one of the most prestigious heritage sites in the country after being put forward as a candidate to become a United Nations Environment, Society and Culture Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Site. There are currently only eight UNESCO Heritage sites in Canada and only 17 in all of North America, and a group of heritage experts has put the cannery forward to become the newest site. Port Edward Historical Society president Andrew Hamilton said joining that elite company would only benefit the cannery. “This is a huge honour and would have profound implications for North Pacific Cannery, all of them positive as far as the board is concerned,” he wrote in a letter seeking support from the District of Port Edward. “Not only would UNESCO designation mean the site would truly become a premier tourist attraction in the region, but it could also mean the basis of a new partnership with the federal government, which would mean the possibility of realizing financial and human resource stability for the site.” The District of Port Edward quickly threw their support behind the idea and has forwarded along the request to other neighbouring communities. “North Pacific Cannery is part of northwest history and we need to ensure that sites such as North Pacific Cannery are preserved and protected,” said Mayor Dave MacDonald. The City of Prince Rupert offered its support to the idea during the Sept. 30 council meeting.

Family of Justin Brooks, the 21-year-old discovered in Prince Rupert’s harbour in March, believes the answers they’ve been looking for are close. In September, the family hired two private investigators to gather information on the case. The investigators are now reviewing their findings and are continuing to collect documentation related to the death. Those private investigators may have already been in the community talking with people involved with the case. “I wasn’t going to wait for the RCMP to get off their [expletive deleted]. We started fundraising a month later ... the RCMP came to the conclusion it was a slip and fall or suicide the very next day [after he was found]. That is what I didn’t like,” Brooks’ mother Cheryl Ryan said. “It feels like we’ve accomplished something. We stepped on a lot of toes to get where we’re at,” added aunt Sheri Latimer. Brooks’ family wasn’t convinced when Prince Rupert RCMP told them there were no serious injuries that would have contributed to Brooks’ drowning death. The family said they were told a group of individuals assaulted Brooks prior to his passing. “We know he was bullied, pushed around and beaten,” Ryan said. “He was very sensitive. He took everything to heart. When people were mean to him it broke his heart. No one should ever die like that.” For its part, Const. Matt Ericson said the RCMP see their investigation

21-year-old Justin Brook’s family has hired two private investigators.

“We’ve stepped on a lot of toes to get where we’re at.” - Sheri Latimer into the case as being concluded. But both Ryan and Latimer said their efforts are far from done. “We’re going to keep raising money to pay investigators until we get answers,” Ryan said, noting $8,000 has been raised to date. Anyone interested in donating to the Justice for Justin campaign is encouraged to contact Sheri Latimer at 250-622-2989. Meanwhile, a group will be looking at how indigenous communities interact with the justice system and how indigenous people can be better

informed of the procedure for these kind of investigations. Simon Fraser University’s School of Criminology and the Department of First Nations Studies sent out proposals for partnership to the BC Civil Liberties Association, the Union of BC Indian Chiefs and the Vancouver Aboriginal Transformative Justice Society to compile data about the frequency and location of questionable deaths in indigenous communities. Then the group will look at case studies of how indigenous communities are interacting with the justice system in a very broad sense. “We want the kind of research that indicates a map or picture of an issue, as opposed to individual stories, which of course are incredibly compelling but don’t tell us enough about whether something has happened in one instance or area or whether we have a systemic problem,” Micheal Vonn, policy director of the BCCLA, said.

Speed limits under review BY JEFF NAGEL KAMLOOPS / Black Press

GITGA’AT GIFT Gitga’at elder Helen Clifton presents a mask carved by Jessel Bolton to B.C. Attorney General and Minister of Justice Suzanne Anton during a Sept. 30 visit to the community. The Gitga’at took the opportunity to discuss with Minister Anton the growing concern of trophy hunting along the coast. Gitga’at are concerned that potential nearby resource development will result in greater recreational pressures on their territory.

Transportation Minister Todd Stone wants B.C. residents to weigh in on a potential increase in highway speed limits now under consideration. Stone announced the formal review of speed limits Friday in Kamloops although he had previously indicated it was coming and technical work is already underway. It’s been a decade since B.C. last reviewed speed limits. Stone said any increases would involve mainly rural provincial highways between communities, not highways in urban areas of the Lower Mainland, although which specific corridors to adjust will be subject to public input. He said a higher speed limit in some stretches of highway has been made possible by billions of dollars in major road upgrades since the last review in 2003, including 180 additional kilometres of four- or six-lane highway. He also said vehicles are “much safer today than 10 years ago” as a result of traction stability control, anti-lock brakes and other improvements. Stone cited a 28 per cent drop in injurycausing collisions since 2003. And, he said, research increasingly suggests

the greatest danger isn’t necessarily speeding itself, but driving at a much different speed than most other drivers. A minority of 15 per cent of drivers who don’t keep up with the flow or who speed excessively are at greater risk of a crash than the other 85 per cent of drivers who may be going somewhat over the posted speed limit, he said. Stone stressed decreases in the speed limit are also possible. “This review is not about increasing speed limits, it’s about making sure we have the right speed limits.” And, he said, there will be “no Autobahn” in B.C. where speed limits are lifted altogether. “I am not interested in making any changes that are going to compromise the safety of motorists.” He said one option could be variable speed limits that are higher in the day and lower at night. The speed limit review aims to generate recommendations by next spring, when the Legislature reconvenes. Some cities have also advocated for a lower default speed limit on urban streets of 40 kilometres per hour instead of 50, but that idea was defeated by a majority of delegates at last month’s Union of British Columbia Municipalities convention.

Next Rampage Home Game Sat. Oct. 12 vs. Kitimat Ice Demons Puck Drop: 8 p.m. www.thenorthernview.com

Rampage drop season opener to Kangaroos Roos come back in the third BY SHAUN THOMAS PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

The Prince Rupert Rampage kicked off the 2013/2014 CIHL season against the Quesnel Kangaroos on Saturday night in a fast-paced, high-scoring affair. The two teams left it all on the ice in the first period, but the highlight was the play of goaltenders Ryan Manderson of Quesnel and Warren Hanson of Prince Rupert. After Manderson shut the door in close on the powerplay, there was a close call at the other end of the ice when the puck got behind Hanson and sat there before eventually being cleared from the crease by the Rampage defense. With six minutes to play in the frame and Prince Rupert on the powerplay, both goalies were called upon to make some big saves. The period ended in a scoreless tie, but an altercation after the buzzer between Quesnel’s Dave Gordan and Jordan Aubee ensured the Rampage would start the second on the powerplay. The late penalty proved to be costly for Quesnel as Kory Movold opened the scoring just 1:19 into the second with a wrister from a bad angle that beat Manderson. The excitement of the crowd was short lived though, as Tyrell Turgeon stole the puck in the offensive zone and went five-hole just over two minutes later to tie things up, Nick Tomassetti put one over the pad of Hanson less than five minutes later and Matt Stang netted a shorthanded goal by picking up a rebound at the side of the net with 5:06 to play to make it 3-1. While it looked like the Kangaroos would take a commanding lead into the final frame, the Rampage offence came to life as the clocked ticked down. Kendal Mossini’s unassisted goal with 2:56 to play was followed by a Kendal Stace-Smith goal just 13 seconds later to tie things at three. The crowd came to their feet at the end of the period when Jordan Weir picked up the puck at the side of the net and beat Manderson with 2.3 seconds left to give Rupert the 4-3 lead with one period left. Quesnel quickly tied things up just

“Five-on-five I thought we were even, but those shorthanded goals were the difference.” - Roger Atchison 1:26 into the third when Paul Girodat forced a turnover at the blue line and fed Turgeon to complete the 2-on-0, and took the lead just over three minutes later as Alek Gibbs sniped a top-shelf wrister on a rare 2-on-1 shorthanded rush. The Rampage had opportunities late in the game, including a 5-on-3 powerplay with six minutes to go, but a late penalty for too many men on the ice resulted in another Kangaroos goal as Turgeon deked out Hanson and put away the backhander to give the visitors the 6-4 win. “Tonight, there were a couple of turnovers on our powerplay and we

gave up two shorthanded goals. I think that was the difference. Five-onfive I thought we were even, but those shorthanded goals were the difference ... the special teams have to step up,” said coach Roger Atchison, noting this game was a good start for the season. “All I want to see is hard work and the guys have to gel a bit more. I think that’s coming, we just have to play more disciplined and play a full 60 minutes.” Next up for the Rampage is a home game against the Kitimat Ice Demons on Saturday night. “I expect a good, hard played game and, hopefully, two points with the

win,” said captain Jared Meers, adding the team will be practicing throughout the week to prepare. “I think we’ll be focusing on the transition game, getting through the neutral zone. We’re taking everything in stride and working, as players, to get to where we need to be out of habit instead of it feeling forced.”

Around the league The Kitimat Ice Demons started out the season on a winning note, defeating the Terrace River Kings 6-3 on Saturday night. They followed that up with a 7-3 win over the Quesnel Kangaroos on Sunday afternoon. The defending champion Smithers Steelheads squeaked out a win in their season opener, defeating the Houston Luckies 4-3 in overtime in Houston. The Williams Lake Stampeders and Lac La Hache Tomahawks put on an offensive showcase on Saturday night, with Williams Lake taking a 9-6 win.

Port backs Rampage BY SHAUN THOMAS PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

Every Prince Rupert Rampage home goal this season will help the less fortunate in the community, as the Prince Rupert Port Authority renewed its sponsorship and community commitment from last season. For every goal the team nets at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre Arena, the port will make a $100 donation to the Prince Rupert Salvation Army. In the 2012/2013 season, the Rampage scored a total of 31 goals at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre, providing for a total donation of $3,100. “The goal-scoring program is quite literally a win-win for the community,” said Captain Gary Sheils of the Prince Rupert Salvation Army. “Last year’s donation went a long way to improving the quality of life for hundreds of people in the community, and we are thankful to have that support continue this season.”

Slubowski plays 40 minutes in Broncos win BY SHAUN THOMAS PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

Prince Rupert Minor Hockey product Frank Slubowski was back between the pipes for the University of Western Michigan Broncos for the start of his third season with the team. Playing the “Border Battle” against the University of Western Ontario on Oct. 5, Slubowski was back in form, shutting down the Ontario offense in the first and making five saves in the process. In the second frame, Slubowski allowed one goal on four shots, helping lead the Broncos to a 3-1 lead through two periods of play. Backup goalie Luka Hafner took it from there, stopping nine of 11 shots to give the Broncos the 5-2 victory. “We played a strong Canadian team that was 5-0 coming in to tonight. They pushed us real hard,” said head coach Andy Murray of the win. With the preseason out of the way, the Broncos will begin the regular season this weekend with a home-and-home series against Notre Dame on Friday and Saturday.

Curling club ready for new season Open house aims to attract new members

The Prince Rupert Curling Club is looking to grow and will be opening up its doors to the public during registration time this year. The club has begun holding registration for this season’s curling leagues, and will be until Friday, Oct. 11. To encourage new curlers to join, the club is holding open house events this week. “This year we’re making a conscious effort to open up to the general public,” Corey Kitchen, vice-president of the Prince Rupert Curling Club, said. The open house events started

“This year we’re making a conscious effort to open up to the general public.” - Corey Kitchen Tuesday, and will continue tonight, Wednesday, Oct. 9 and tomorrow, Oct. 10, with the club inviting members of the public to curl for free from 7 to 9 p.m. The PRCC Lounge will also be open.

“If you’ve ever tried curling or were interested in trying to curl, or if you just want to come down for a pint, you’re welcome to,” Kitchen said, adding there will be experienced curlers to show people the ropes and assist if needed. Kitchen said while the club is hoping to register all curlers, it is hoping to get more female curlers to become part of the women’s and mixed league this year. Curling teams are composed of four players, with the skip calling the shots for the lead, second and third on the team. Each player throws two stones per end and sweep twice, with the exception of the skip who does not sweep.

Bikers hit the street for a merry Christmas Rain can’t stop the Toy Run

BY MARTINA PERRY PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

People unfamiliar with the annual Toy Run may have suspected a gang of bikers had come to town on Saturday afternoon. But the motorcycle riders revving around Prince Rupert last weekend were a different kind of biker, providing gifts under the Christmas trees of underprivileged children as part of the 32nd Annual Toy Run. The Prince Rupert Harley Riders club holds the annual poker run and evening dance for the Salvation Army Christmas Hamper program, which makes sure all children have gifts to open on Christmas morning. “There are a lot of kids in this town that are underprivileged. Come Christmas time, it means a lot to us that they get something. That’s why we’re here, to look after those kids,” said Norm Sklapsky, president of the Prince Rupert Harley Riders club. More than 50 participants took part in the poker run, where riders stopped at five locations, drawing a card at each stop. At the end of the run, the person with the best and worst poker hand split a cash prize. Paulette Desautels, mother of

“There are a lot of kids in this town that are underprivileged.” - Norm Sklapsky long-time club president and Toy Run organizer Mark “Dezi” Desautels, attended the send off at the Salvation Army on Saturday afternoon and was happy with the turnout. Her son Mark passed away a number of years ago, but Paulette continues to support the event each year. “For all these riders to come out in this weather is just so awesome,” Desautels said. Riders stopped at Inland Air, the Port Edward Fire Hall, Rotary Waterfront Park, Roosevelt Park and the Belmont. In Port Edward, volunteer firefighters handed over a number of toys to donate to the cause. After the poker run, riders and community members packed into Fishermen’s Hall for the dance. Admission included $10 and a toy, with money collected going toward

purchasing additional toys for the hamper program. Sklapsky said the club will continue to raise money for the hamper program over the coming weekends by selling Toy Run T-shirts at the Rupert Square Mall. The 2013 Toy Run will be Sklapsky’s last year organizing as president, with Sklapsky handing the role over to Chris Rose. In the meantime, the club is in need of some new members.

Fairview traffic down in September Other terminals see increases By Martina Perry PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

Prince Rupert’s Fairview Terminal saw a decline in tonnage through the first three quarters of 2013.

Crucial equipment used in aircraft landings has been modernized at the Prince Rupert Airport. YPR’s Instrument Landing System (ILS), which allow pilots to land aircraft in conditions of reduced visibility, was replaced as part of a nation-wide upgrade by NAV Canada, the country’s air navigation services provider. The old ILS was more than 30 years old. Both of the ILS’ components, the localizer and guild-pass, were updated. The localizer shows pilots where the centre of the runway is and the guild-pass helps with the descent. “It’s more modern and reliable in the sense that there will be fewer faults, and it’s easier to repair than the old equipment,” said Ron Singer, a spokesperson for NAV Canada. The old ILS was turned off in late-August, with the airport operating without a system for the remainder of August and September. While the ILS wasn’t operating, seven flights were diverted from YPR to the Northwest Regional Airport in Terrace, affecting 417 passengers. Rick Reed, manager of YPR, said even if the ILS had been operational during September, there would’ve likely been missed flights. “The fog was just too heavy ... it was weather, and weather alone that diverted those flights,” he said, adding the weather prevented the upgrade from being complete sooner. Final tests on the system finished on Oct. 2.

Walking to take back the highway BY MARTINA PERRY

experienced a scare along Highway 16. Rice accidentally locked herself out of her vehicle at a rest stop, where there was no cell service. “All I could think about was the women along the Highway of Tears, and how that could’ve easily been me. I’m definitely in favour of getting cell service between Prince Rupert and Prince George,” she said, adding she would like to see the federal government do a national inquiry on the issue of missing women. During Rice’s first question period in July, she asked B.C. Justice Minister Suzanne Anton why a safer transportation option hasn’t been implemented on Highway 16, despite the fact the 2006 Highway of Tears Symposium and the 2012 Missing Women Inquiry report both called for one. While the event was held in honour of the Highway of Tears victims, it also revolved around the issue of violence against women in general, calling on action to be taken to end the problem and to not blame victims. Treena Decker, NCTS Stopping the Violence counsellor, shared her story about losing her friend Marne. Marne and her friends went out to the bar one night, but because she was underage she couldn’t get in. “She said she was fine, and would catch a ride home. She never got home ... she was found months later,” she said. Decker reminded people not to lay the responsibility of violence against women on the victims, but against the perpetrator. “There’s a tendency for people to blame the victim. We heard a lot of ‘Why was she

PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

At Your Service

People in Prince Rupert, the last stop along the Highway of Tears, marched and remembered the missing and murdered women found along Highway 16 on Friday. The North Coast Transition Society (NCTS) and Native Women’s Association of Canada held Take Back the Highway Walk and Sisters in Spirit Vigil on Oct. 4, where people walked from the Prince Rupert courthouse to the Lester Centre of the Arts for a candlelight vigil. Christine White of the NCTS said the event was held to raise awareness. “We don’t want to become complicit and let things fall into the background. We want governments to hold to the things they said they’d do and carry through with those things,” White said. Many walkers wore numbers, representing the women who went missing or were found deceased along the Highway of Tears. The victims were mainly of aboriginal descent. “Prince Rupert is the last stop on the Highway of Tears, where so many of our women have gone missing. There are conflicting numbers around how many women are victims of the Highway of Tears ... what we know is that every women missing is one too many,” White said, adding cell service along the highway would go a long way in helping women. The vigil at the Lester Centre included a number of speakers, including Jennifer Rice, MLA of the North Coast, who told the Northern View she recently

Two arrested for break and enter BY CPL. GLEN BRECKON MASSET / Special to The Northern View

It was a busy week for the Masset RCMP. Most of the calls involved criminal offences fueled by alcohol and will require some followup investigation. The files the Masset RCMP responded to included 10 drunk in public files, two assault files, two theft files and two motor vehicle incidents. One male visited the Masset RCMP cells three separate times between Sept. 25-27, 2013, for various offences. On his second, visit only hours after being released the first time, a quantity of marijuana was located on the male while he was being searched. In the early morning hours on Sept. 26, the Masset RCMP responded to a Break and Enter in progress in Port Clements. A male entered a residence while the occupants were sleeping and took keys to a vehicle and a bottle of liquor. The male then took the vehicle and crashed it into the ditch before fleeing the scene on foot. The owner was able to chase the male down and held him in custody until police arrived. The male was arrested and held in custody after a brief visit to the hospital. He has since been released and is scheduled to appear in Masset Provincial court in the near future on several charges. The male was not known to the victims. On the evening of Sept. 29, Masset RCMP responded to a complaint that a male had entered the Mile Zero Pub and stolen a bottle of Vodka, a can of beer and a bag of chips before fleeing from the scene. Masset RCMP located the male who was also breaching his “no alcohol” probation conditions. The male had been involved in several police incidents over the previous two days and was arrested. The Masset RCMP are seeking to have this male, who has over 40 previous criminal convictions remanded into custody. As always, any suspicious activity can be reported to the Masset RCMP at 250-626-3991.

Rat eradication program continues

BY SHAUN THOMAS HAIDA GWAII / The Northern View

The campaign to rid Gwaii Haanas National Park of rats continued in September, with a second round of aerial rat poison drops taking place as part of Project Night Birds. The program, a partnership between Parks Canada and the Haida Nation, aims to rid islands throughout the archipelago from rats in an effort to restore the population of the Ancient Murrelet and other native bird species that have been threatened through the introduction of rats. However, wiping out rats in an area as large and diverse as Gwaii Haanas is easier said than done. “It is difficult to eradicate established rat populations, particularly on islands. It takes years

“Determining success is a long-term investment.” - Laurie Weine of planning — we have been talking about this project for the last five years and it has been two years of extensive planning before we proceeded with the implementation this September. But we can remove rats from islands, it has been done globally many times over,” said Laurie Weine, project manager. “The exciting thing about rat eradications is it is a one-off investment, so if you can remove rats you will quickly see a rebound in the populations of native animals.”

Aerial eradication was chosen for the second phase of the project not only because of the difficult terrain, but because the black rats being targeted are known to both burrow in the ground and climb trees. By covering the island, Weine is optimistic the goals will be achieved. “The chances of success are pretty good. This is a tried and proven conservation technique that has been used in the Galapagos and across the world, so we have high hopes for the success here,” she said, noting dispersing the poison is just the start. “Determining success is a longterm investment, so we will be monitoring these islands for many years to come looking for the return of the ancient Murrelet and other native species.”

Airshed effects Warmer, wetter winters projected May have of LNG to be undesired effects studied BY JEFF NAGEL

BY CAMERON ORR

PRINCE RUPERT / Black Press

KITIMAT / The Northern Sentinel

The Province of B.C. is kicking in $650,000 for a scientific study for the Kitimat region, to figure out how the area’s air shed will handle liquefied natural gas developments proposed for the area. The funding, provided by the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Natural Gas Development, was announced on Oct. 3. Environment Minister Mary Polak said the studies will help guide the government in setting regulations for the companies. “What is really important for us to do is to make sure we’re looking at not just at each individual project, but understanding how they will fit into the puzzle with respect to the total emissions from the project when they’re all built out, potentially,” said Polak. “Likely what will happen is it will guide the type of regulations we would put in place for the projects as they’re built. So they [companies] would understand then the technical requirements needed for their facilities, and we use that information to guide us as to what requirements we give them.” Polak was in Kitimat on Oct. 2 for a tour of the Douglas Channel and to meet with local politicians. The Kitimat Airshed Impact Assessment Project will also include the existing Rio Tinto Alcan smelter and the proposed oil expert facility, and gas turbine powered electricity generation facilities, in addition to three proposed LNG export operations. The study is said to focus on sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide emissions from the facilities. The study will assess the impact of emissions, including their potential effects on water and soil as well as on vegetation and human health from direct exposure. A request for proposals to conduct the study will be issued, and Polak said that she expects the work on the study to conclude in March 2014.

Climate change will likely mean warmer, rainier winters in B.C. as well as reduced summer stream flows, a forum in Vancouver heard Monday as new international findings were released. Dr. Francis Zwiers, director of the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium (PCIC) and vicechair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) working group 1, said projections for B.C. point to further warming of 2.9 degrees in the winter and 2.4 degrees in the summer by 2100, under a moderate carbon emission scenario. Winter warming on that scale could translate into 17 to 51 more days per year of frost-free conditions, he told the forum, in the wake of the already measured reduction of 24 annual frost days since 1900 and a 2.1-degree increase in the province’s winter temperatures. While a longer growing season might be a boon to gardeners and farmers, Zwiers noted warming winters have also allowed unwanted species like the mountain pine beetle to flourish and wreak havoc on Interior forests. “That’s an impact that has been linked to a changing climate,” Zwiers said. “You can just imagine there would be many other organisms that would find B.C. to be a much more hospitable place to live, even in a slightly warmer climate than we have at the moment, or a slightly wetter climate than we have at the moment.” PCIC researchers projected

The mountain pine beetle may not be the only undesirable species to exploit warming temperatures in B.C. as a result of projected climate change.

“That’s an impact that has been linked to a changing climate.” - Dr. Francis Zwiers climate changes in B.C. over the rest of this century using the same models as the IPCC. Winter warming would be greater in the northeast than other parts of the province, while summer warming projections are roughly uniform. Zwiers said the modeling shows winter, spring and fall precipitation will increase in B.C., with a 10 per cent increase in precipitation in winters expected and summers potentially getting wetter in the north but drier in the south. Wetter, warmer winters could affect the province’s supply of

water for drinking, farming, power generation and salmon migration. With less water being stored as snow over the winter, Zwiers said, B.C. can expect higher amounts of winter and spring runoff, leaving less behind in the upper elevations to deliver water in summer. The new IPCC report reiterated that the planet is warming and people are the probable cause. But some observers criticized it for downgrading projected temperature increases due to a 15year “pause” in average surface temperature rise. Zwiers maintained human influence is clear and action is urgently needed to both reduce emissions and adapt to expected “substantial” impacts. The IPCC report predicts Canada will face more warming than the global average, along with more frequent and more intense extreme weather events.

Fire Prevention week now underway BY DAVE MCKENZIE / JEFF BECKWITH PRINCE RUPERT/ Fire Department

Each October, Fire Prevention Week (FPW) arrives with reading materials and presentations to the Grade 1-3 students in the Prince Rupert area. This year’s theme is about “Kitchen Fires”, and the Prince Rupert Fire Rescue Department has been cooking some great ideas for 10 months in order to make this year’s FPW a real success. Beginning in 2012, Community Safety Net (http://www. communitysafetynet.com/) began calling local Prince Rupert businesses with the hopes of raising enough funds to produce a 115 page fire safety booklet and DVD to be handed out to the children in our area. This successful campaign was well supported by the community and industry partners, and by working together, were able to produce 870 booklets. This accomplishment has not been matched by any community of our size, and Prince Rupert can be very proud of earning this number one ranking. During Fire Prevention Week, fire fighters will be visiting each of the

five elementary schools to present these booklets along with another great surprise. Sparky the Fire Dog has been a recognized mascot of the Fire Service since the 1950’s, and this year Sparky will make an appearance again in Prince Rupert after a long absence. The Department applied for FM Global’s fire prevention grant and according to Michael Spaziani of FM Global “this application stood out among the hundreds we received” and awarded a $2,000 grant to the Fire Department. A generous donation from Prince Rupert Grain filled the needed funds to complete this purchase and the Department is excited to announce that Sparky will play an active role in the 2013 FPW activities and for many years to come. The goal of Fire Prevention Week has always been to educate children about fire safety. For decades, this program has proven to be an effective way to reduce fire incidents in our communities. With the help our community partners, the Fire Department has been able to provide effective fire safety materials to our children in Prince Rupert. The efforts of everyone that

contributed to these programs will help reduce the occurrence of fires and give the children the knowledge of how to act if they ever encounter a fire.

Knowing what to expect from relationships and activities help children become more confident.

A founding member of Prince Rupert SPEC and delegate to the Labour Council, he was a letter carrier, welder, pulp mill worker, and last served as Coordinator for the Prince Rupert Unemployed Centre Society where he successfully assisted people with compensation and benefit claims. Terry was an early and committed fly fisherman and had great respect and many tales to recount about the rivers of the northwest. He apprenticed on Kloiya Creek and spent many seasons fishing the Copper, Babine and Kispiox among others. His participation in school band and accomplishment on the classical guitar established a love of music which he believed could be (and was) enhanced by a dram of scotch. He was widely read, packed a keen and humorous intellect, and campaigned for the NDP and progressive causes. A loyal fan of the Detroit Red Wings, he left us with his Atlanta Braves looking hopeful for the World Series. Prince Rupert to the core, his many friends and colleagues miss a true original who lived life by his own definitions. Our thanks are extended to valiant friend Lorn Quick and family and those Prince George Regional Hospital staff who supported Terry during his final weeks with us. He is at rest. Sing on brother, play on drummer. A service in Terry's memory for his family, friends and the many he loved and assisted will be announced. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Prince Rupert Unemployed Centre Society may be made at Fisherman’s Hall, 869 Fraser Street, Prince Rupert BC V8J 1R1
