Shooting Range wants expansion

Wednesday, October 16, 2013



Cameron Orr Ask and ye shall receive, as the Fire Mountain Shooting Club learned when they sought and received $7,500 from the District last week. Club president John Kennedy presented their plans at the outset of the meeting, which is to expand the firing range to complete a project which is already 90 per cent done. The group had already used the majority of the $36,900 the District granted them in the last budget cycle to expand the shooting enclosures. They were given guidance when they were granted the money to first attempt to reduce costs as much as possible. The club and various users did come together and do just that, and helped put in a new concrete slab, and free engineering work was even done to the range itself. The new building cost $26,000 and the slab was $12,000. Kennedy said they have $3,200 leftover from the District’s grant, but still needed the $7,500 to clear material so they can take advantage of the larger building. “I can get behind those kinds of things when the community comes’s a good project,” said Mario Feldhoff speaking to the motion to grant the money, moved by Mary Murphy. The only other thing brought up was from Phil Germuth who just told Kennedy that in the future he’d like to discuss ideas relating to noise pollution from the range, after hearing comments from Cablcar residents, but he noted that his research indicated the range is designed well.

Jed Stumps residents separate fact from fiction Cameron Orr The residents of the Jed Stumps trailer court in Kitimat can breath a little easier now that rumours have been put to rest about the future of their home. Residents had been working off hearsay and rumours following the sale of the property, with many worried they were quickly going to be kicked out, and left with no place to go. If it turned out they had to leave, many weren’t sure where they would go. Even the trailer court next door to them could only take on four from Jed Stumps, said Avalene Turner at a gathering of concerned residents at the Northwest Community College on October 8. Turner and Kitimat’s Housing Resource Worker Anne Moyls put together the meeting, which was intended to also include the new owners of the property but, while they couldn’t be there, Mayor Joanne Monaghan and District of Kitimat planner Daniel Martin were to hear

“The rumours are gone, the gossip is gone.” concerns and to provide information as needed. Monaghan was able to relay information she had received from the owners, which was that nothing is happening to the trailer court for at least a year, if even at all. She said the new owner is planning a meeting with residents in the not-to-distant future. “I think a lot of people relaxed,” said Turner. “The rumours are gone, the gossip is gone.” She said there’s still a lingering fear of it being shut down after a year but everyone now knows the eventual process of how that would happen, if it were to happen. “We heard rumours it’s going to be bulldozed, and we’re out of here in a month,” said about the residents prior to their meeting. So now it’s wait and see what happens after a year.

KTIDS closing The Kitimat-Terrace Industrial Development Society (KTIDS) is closing shop, but the reason is a success, not a failure. The group, which formed in 2005, has announced that they have succeeded in meeting their purpose and mission. The decision was made at a September 30 board meeting. In an unsigned statement from the society on October 7, they say “The communities of north-western British Columbia have transformed from isolated and floundering repression to an interdependent, thriving and rebranded economies that are attracting huge investments to the region.” KTIDS founding goal was to “strengthen the region’s economy by working to diversify existing aluminum, forestry and petrochemical industries, and attract new industries.”

Residents and community stakeholders take in the information at Chevron’s Clio Bay open house at the Riverlodge.

Clio Bay open house Cameron Orr Chevron has been beefing up their community engagement over the last few weeks regarding the Clio Bay Restoration Project, first with a visit to Kitimat Council, and then two open houses, one in Kitamaat Village, and another at the Riverlodge last week. They’ve also been having oneon-one meetings with community groups on the plan. There’s not much new as far as details to the plan go, which involves moving marine clay from Bish Cove

where it’s proposed they’ll build the Kitimat LNG facility over to Clio Bay, to cover submerged logs. The plan, which is geared to rejuvenating the sea floor in the bay, is still in the planning stages and while they are aiming for an early 2014 start if possible, they say it definitely won’t be in the first weeks of 2014. Once a firm plan is established they are considering more open houses or public meetings. The company also has yet to receive a Department of Fisheries and Oceans permit for the work.

“The board would like to thank our business partners and engaged community representatives for their support and input throughout the years,” said KTIDS President Robin Lapointe. KTIDS major funding partner was Rio Tinto Alcan. KTIDS website,, includes a number of surveys and profiles of the KitimatTerrace Valley. Their listed ‘current projects’ on their site include west side road development, and Investigation of secondary aluminum manufacturing opportunities, among a long list of others.

Spill study The B.C. environment ministry has released its promised study of the current state of crude oil spill response capability, tracking the growing tonnage of petroleum shipping along the West Coast and estimating response time and effectiveness if oil was to spill at sea. Oil recovery in computer simulated oil spills could be as high as 25 per cent after five days, or as low as four per cent for Alaska crude, with another quarter evaporating. The study was commissioned to back up Premier Christy Clark’s conditions for B.C.’s approval of expanded heavy oil shipments, either from twinning the TransMountain pipeline from northern Alberta to Burnaby, or the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway project across northern B.C. to a new tanker port at Kitimat. E nv i r o n m e n t Minister Mary Polak said the study shows the need to increase response capability before the B.C. government would consider increased oil shipments. The three-volume report also details the huge and growing traffic that exists now. Shipping data show a 17 per cent increase in marine traffic volume from 2011 to 2012. An estimated 110 million cubic metres of petroleum products per year are shipped, about a third of which is crude-like bunker oil carried as fuel on ships of all kinds. The biggest tanker cargo is 38 million cubic metres of mostly Alaska crude a year.

Looking to dump more hours on Tuesday Cameron Orr A seven day a week landfill? Kitimat Council has sent for a report from administration that looks into the implications, including cost, of opening the landfill on Tuesdays, the only day of the week it currently does not open. The request to staff came after Phil Germuth moved for the District of Kitimat to “work to re-open the municipal landfill on Tuesdays,” as well as reviewing their hours of operation. “The Tuesday landfill closure is one impact we can control to help local businesses,” said Germuth, saying that he’s had many discussions with business owners and contractors who are affected by the Tuesday closure. As an example, he said a contractor excavating drain tiles on a Monday may find they can’t complete before the landfill closes, meaning they have a full trailer of

waste that would have to wait until Wednesday, possibly impacting operations on Tuesday. Meanwhile he also wants the hours looked at, suggesting that the current 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. weekday schedule is helpful to shift workers but might actually be inefficient. He said the landfill contractor is open to have a conversation with the Council on that subject. Instead of wanting the motion to pass as is, Mario Feldhoff moved that it be tabled until the District staff could provide a report on the implications and cost. “Councillor Germuth brings up good points, they all may be very accurate but there may be other points from the perspective of the staff that I would very much like to reflect upon,” he said. He said he only anticipated that it be tabled for a week or two to get the input from staff. While he wasn’t sure what the

MK Bay Marina works on WCB safety orders Cameron Orr MK Bay Marina has reportedly wrapped up work to bring their facility in-line to orders from WorkSafeBC. The marina, which is operated by the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine, was ordered to comply with safety regulations, namely installing more fixed ladders into the water and installing other accessible lifesaving equipment. The orders originated from inspections going back to 2007. The marina, however, had appealed the penalties, noting a number of concerns, including WorkSafeBC’s authority over aspects of the marina, and allegations the marina was being unfairly targeted. However all that failed through the appeal process, although they did manage to get their penalty lowered. They initially had to pay $39,708.23, based on a formula including the entire regional district payroll, but their new figure only includes the marina’s own payroll number, at $6,421.63. In July, WorkSafeBC inspectors came back to see prog-

ress at the marina and noted the additions hadn’t quite met with their standards, but improvements were made and the acting manager said that anything outstanding would be completed within about four weeks. Interim MK Bay Marina manager Bill Hickman told the Sentinel that he believes the work is completed from their end, but he has yet to see the inspectors return for another look. Hickman took on the managerial role after the investigations and reviews took place. “They haven’t been down here in the last six weeks, so I assume they’ll have an inspection and if they find anything that’s out I’ll do that.” The official WorkSafeBC inspection report from July 31 states that “it was noted that more ladders from the docks to the water were installed but there [sic] numbers would still not make this firm compliant with the requirements that have been supplied to them.” Further, “Lifesaving equipment num-

bers have increased, again there [sic] actual spacings will be reviewed in a few weeks.” The review from WorkSafeBC said that fixed ladders must be provided at every dock, and spaced no more than 30 metres apart. The reviews also found the ladders that were there did not extend one metre under lowest water mark.

staff report would eventually contain, he said it’s possible they may even find it more beneficial to put extra money into recycling rather than the landfill.

Rob Goffinet sided with Feldhoff, saying they’re being “prudent” to ask for the report. The tabling motion passed unanimously.

Setting, then solving, your own roadblocks The province of B.C. has released a comprehensive study into the preparedness of marine-spills on our coast. The announcement came last Thursday, and as I seek to gather local reactions to the plan I thought I’d start off with my own local reaction. So, the study comes in three volumes, which cover things from how much traffic we have to existing spill response, and ideas on other best practices to implement. It’s a large, large document, but in the government’s press release for it, they say the report concludes they do need more resources from the federal government. (The federal government, meanwhile, welcomed the study, according to a later press release.) The most interesting line in the release from B.C., however, is this one: “The study lays the foundation for building a world-class marine spill response and preparedness system, one of the Province’s five conditions for considering heavy oil pipelines in B.C.” I found that interesting because when I thought of Christy Clark’s five conditions to allowing oil export out of B.C., I had always thought of them as conditions a company has to meet, not the province. Those five conditions, by the way, are: - Successful completion of the environmental review process. - World-leading marine oil spill response, prevention and recovery systems for B.C.’s coastline. - World-leading practices for land oil spill prevention, response and recovery systems. - Legal requirements regarding Aboriginal and treaty rights are addressed, and First Nations are provided with the necessary opportunities, information and resources. - British Columbia receives a fair share of the fiscal and economic benefits of a proposed heavy oil project. (All copied from the B.C. Liberals’ website.) So hopefully I wasn’t out to lunch when I thought those were company conditions. A company has to address legal requirements to First Nations, give the province a fair share, have world-leading spill response, etc. (The environmental review, of course, is not up to the company.) But by saying this study, commissioned by the province, sets the foundation to meeting one of the five conditions, it’s basically saying the province has made these conditions, but the province gets to solve them too. And who can say no to themselves?

Seems more fair to just set the conditions, and see who can step up to them. Cameron Orr

ferent from the faltering indecisive way the government deals with, for example, the never-ending costly cycle of Senate corruption. There are no lump-sum payments there except lump-sum expense ‘re’-payments for ineligible expense. The least that can be said is the government has reacted to public furor on the issue by committing to review of the new veterans’ charter, as announced this month. Veterans now need wide-ranging public help to demonstrate solidarity for their quest for justice. I have a suggestion for one high profile way to do so, without impacting the integrity and gravity of Remembrance Day ceremonies country-wide. It calls for Legion and veteran representatives at the November 11 wreathlaying ceremony only in Ottawa, as well as members of the public who support their position, to turn and face away when the Prime Minister, or whoever represents the government at this ceremony, lays the wreath. They can then resume their respectful viewing of Remembrance Day ceremonies. No words will be needed and no-one else needs to be involved. It would take moments for one part of the on-lookers on Parliament Hill, but will speak volumes about Canadians support for fairness and equality for veterans.

From committees to crime to climate change Dear Sir, Well I guess it must be fall. Fog, rain, new snow on mountain tops and ‘brain freezes’ for some politicians. The only thing we can be thankful for is that we have a year to go before the real ‘silly season’ is upon us. Yes, another year before many promises from politicians will be broken. I’m sure a lot of people read online news as well as the local papers. The latest online criticism of volunteers who sit on a seniors housing committee make’s one think; who’s at fault is it that nothing has been accomplished? I thought if you set up a committee on something and “nothing ever happens” it is not the committee’s fault, it is the fault of the person who set it up. All committees need a leader and if nothing is happening it is up to the leader to step in and offer guidance. Not after “three and a half to four years” to say they are not doing their job. All committees need guidance. I keep all the pamphlets from the politicians at election time and every now and again read them to see what was promised. What a waste of time, you say. Well not really. It helps one to decide who can keep promises and who can’t, so you know who to vote for in the next election. Broken promises cannot always be

blamed on someone else. Promises of Pytrade, a green energy project, a break bulk port, have fallen through. Also falling by the way side, task forces chaired by the same politician are the unsightly premises, the intercoastal ferry commission, and now housing for seniors who’s volunteers are blamed for not doing anything. Oh yes, we have a Tim Horton’s, so there’s a positive. The bear committee also fell apart at one point for some obscure reason. What does all this tell one? I know what it tells me and maybe a few others. Yes, we have wonderful things happening in our community; RTA’s modernization, proposal of three LNG plants, and associated goods and service requirements. The above are here simply because of geography. One more comment on the latest police report: A councillor asked how often the RCMP had to go to the modernization’s work camp. I think a more appropriate question may have been why do you hear more sirens on the last week of every month? I don’t think this has anything to do with the camps, where people work 10-12 hours every day then eat and sleep following that. The people who work in the camps ap-

Less than reassuring words Dear Sir, “Despite our best efforts to prevent spills, incidents occur”. The less than reassuring quote above is from Enbridge’s own corporate social responsibility reports, where they have to document all their pipeline spills from the previous year. Interestingly, it disappeared from Enbridge’s reports after their 3.8 million litre diluted bitumen spill into Michigan’s Kalamazoo River. As scary as that shoulder shrugging admission of guaranteed pipeline spills may be, it pales compared to how Enbridge answered the following question during the JRP hearings; “It’s my understanding that there is an operational life expectancy of this pipeline for 50 years. Do you foresee running it for any time longer than that, and how long would that be?” Enbridge’s Ray Doering answered, “Really...each pipeline that an operator manages has a unique internal corrosion manage-

ment program, integrity management program associated with the operation of that pipeline, and a very valuable asset that’s proactively managed with that inspection management program really will have an indefinite life. In 30 years or 50 years, or beyond, the condition of that pipeline really will be the same as the condition when it was first put into service.” It is said the first casualty in war is truth, and so it must be with Enbridge while in post Kalamazoo damage control, because Doering’s answer was given while under oath. Joint Review Panels used to have the authority to deny proposals, but that power was taken away (after Enbridge’s proposal) by one of Prime Minister Harper’s omnibus bills. The Panel can now only make a recommendation. Harper has manipulated the system so that he alone will make the final decision early in January 2014, unless he allows Conservative MPs a free vote

to vote as they wish, or as their constituents wish. Since the 1960s, British Columbia has had a voluntary moratorium on oil and gas exploration on BC’s coast. Even though we’re sitting on our own pot of gold, British Columbians aren’t willing to risk their coastline, salmon, or increasing whale populations. Why should we shoulder all that risk for Alberta? Besides, if the tar sands are the answer to Canada’s economic well being, why is Alberta in debt? It is for these reasons, and more, that I believe it will be Canadians standing shoulder to shoulder who will stop Enbridge’s Northern Gateway project if Harper decides to try and ram it through. First Nations, individual towns, the Union of BC Municipalities, Alberta Unions, The United Church, and more, have taken official positions against the Northern Gateway proposal. Kitamaat’s Gerald Amos has been saying for years that there

will be a ‘Folk Storm’ if Harper tries to force this project through against the wishes of British Columbians. You can bet there will be rallies across Canada as Harper’s decision day gets closer.

If you oppose Enbridge’s plans and haven’t gotten involved yet, this is the time to contact your local environmental watchdog group to get on their email list. Cont’d on page 12

Putting the past to paper A Kitimat-raised historian will be back in town tonight for a reading and slideshow presentation around her new book. Jane Stevenson’s new publication, A Trail of Two Telegraphs, is a collection of her articles about the region, including two about Kitimat specifically. Now living in Telkwa, Stevenson left Kitimat after she graduated from Mount Elizabeth Secondary School in 1995. The two Kitimat contributions to the book are the story of Kitimat’s Wildcat strike of 1976, and of the overall planning of Kitimat as a garden community. “Kitimat is the planned city, and so I looked at the planners and the state of the art and modern city planning they did,” she said. “It’s a very amazing planned town, and still has a lot of those benefits like the sidewalks, and the neighbourhood feelings.” She notes there was some pushback to the way yards were designed. Namely many wives rebelled due to not having anywhere to hang their laundry because of the design of having the ‘back yards’ facing other homes, she said. As for the union strike in 1976, she said

it was a nationally significant event, which her research indicates still has repercussions today, with some families reportedly still not talking to each other. “What happened after that is all the unions in Canada watched what was happening in Kitimat and

they went on a very long and quite dramatic and heated strike and it caused lots of rifts in the community,” she said. Stevenson is looking forward to speaking with people during her event at the Kitimat Museum & Archives at 7 p.m.

KTIDS Northwest to close its doors by the end of 2013 Kitimat & Terrace It is with great pride that the board of directors of Kitimat-Terrace Industrial Development Society (KTIDS), at their board meeting on 30 September 2013, has agreed that the original purpose and mission of the founding society has been achieved. The communities of north-western British Columbia have transformed from isolated and floundering repression to an interdependent, thriving and rebranded economies that are attracting huge investments to the region. With this realization in play, the directors unanimously agreed to discontinue the volunteer organization after eight years of strong and forceful operation. KTIDS was founded in early 2005 with the key goal to strengthen the region’s economy by working to diversify the existing Aluminum, Forestry and Petrochemical industries and attract new investment. The region was well positioned to attract industry with affordable housing, capacity in its schools and quality industrial lands with access to the growing Asian market but needed to be championed. Over the years the directors and staff of KTIDS Northwest have initiated numerous studies, research and business attraction documents then utilized these resources to meet with investors and Government representatives, both municipal and provincial, to market the region and its communities as open for business. Today, with the massive global interest in investment in our region, efforts now have to be made to seize the myriad of opportunities in front of us and manage the social change. As the founding goals of KTIDS have been achieved, this new role of economic development will be done by the excellent organizations we have enjoyed working with over the years. With this announcement, KTIDS Northwest President Robin Lapointe said, “The Board would like to thank our business partners and engaged community representatives for their support and input throughout the years and particularly our funding partner, Rio Tinto Alcan. Without their generous support none of this would have been possible”

Get ready to Holler Submitted If you missed the opening performance of Kitimat’s Concert Association’s season, not to worry. Montreal Guitar Trio entertained our city to rave reviews, but the next show should be equally exciting. Woody Holler and his Orchestra are coming to town. He is a mixture of the past and the present. His influences include Gene Autry and Roy Rogers, but also include the classic blues style of Jimmy Rogers and the ‘danceable’ swing of Bob Willis and The Texas Playboys. He attempts to pay tribute to the past while yodeling like he is from the Switzerland of the present. He has a pitch perfect voice that rises and falls like a big prairie moon and a lyrical yodel that dances around the jingle-jangle of an old guitar. Holler’s nostalgia extends beyond the Western genre into the present. His “jazz from the saddle” style has earned him accolades such as a Canadian Folk Music Awards nominations. An

Community Information Session We invite you to meet members of the team and find out more about the Project at an upcoming information session. Date: Time: Location:

October 21, 2013 4:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Riverlodge Recreation Centre (Activity Room) 654 Columbia Ave West Kitimat, B.C.

Project representatives will be available to answer questions and share information. Light refreshments will be provided.

A Year of Careful Study In June 2012, TransCanada PipeLines announced the Coastal GasLink Project, to safely deliver natural gas from the Groundbirch area, near Dawson Creek, B.C., to the proposed LNG Canada gas liquefaction facility to be developed by Shell Canada Ltd. and its partners near Kitimat, B.C. We began with a “conceptual corridor” based on aerial inspection, available maps and renderings. We then met with First Nations, landowners, local government officials and northern B.C. residents to find opportunities to improve our plan and avoid social and environmental areas of concern. We made significant adjustments to the corridor based on this input and narrowed our focus to a two-kilometre-wide “study corridor.”

During 2013, we have sent hundreds of scientists, engineers and technicians into the field to travel along the corridor, test rocks and soils, study rivers and streams, and gather information about plant and animal life. First Nations community members have shared traditional ecological knowledge through many of our field studies. Using the information we have gathered, we are developing a proposed pipeline route. Our route proposal will be part of our application to the BC Environmental Assessment Office, and our application to the BC Oil and Gas Commission. We are grateful to the communities of northern B.C. for their constructive contributions to this process.

If you are unable to attend, but would like more information you can contact us by email ( or by phone at 1.855.633.2011 (toll-free). TransCanada is Canada’s largest builder and operator of natural gas pipelines. We have been in business in B.C. for 50 years. We are proud of our track record of working with communities and operating safely.

Strong Ice Demons opener Submitted The Kitimat Ice Demons prevailed in back-to back wins on home ice over Terrace River Kings, 6-3 on October 5 and 7-3 over the Quesnel Kangaroos October 6. “We played a lot better against Quesnel than Terrace, so overall, I think we had a good start to the season,” said head coach Cliff Madsen. The Ice Demons started the 2013-14 season on a fast note taking a 1-0 lead on the first shot of the game, a drive from the top of the left circle by centre Josh Slanina (Jeff Mildenberger, Jordan Goncalves) that beat Terrace starting goaltender Patrick Leal cleanly, just 43 seconds into the game. But Terrace had much of the offensive play in period one, but could not put a shot past veteran Demons goaltender Brett Vilness, who earned star of the game honours, playing the style he employed in the Demons’ heyday in the early 2000s.


This will ensure you are notified where protests in your community will be held. Make this a priority before November. We need to send loud and clear messages that no bitumen will be shipped from the north coast of British Columbia. This is especially important as plans are being investigated to have seven trains a day carrying diluted bitumen to B.C.’s north coast, and natural gas pipelines can be converted to carry diluted bitumen. Silence or non-participation will be interpreted as acceptance by Enbridge, their foreign investors, and Prime Minister Harper. Sincerely, Murray Minchin

While out-shooting the Demons 12-8 in the period, Terrace could not get a goal, but the Demons took a two goal lead into the change room on a shorthanded goal scored by Derek DeLisser (Derek Wakita) with just 1:10 left in the period. Against Quesnel, the Ice Demons played a more assertive game although the Kangaroos turned the tables on the Ice Demons with the first goal of the game. While the Demons scored on the first shot of Saturday’s game, the first shot of the Sunday game, scored by Quesnel’s Matt Stang (unassisted), squirmed along the line and behind Tommy Mildenberger in the Kitimat goal to

gave the Kangaroos a 1-0 lead. With a power play goal and three shorthanded goals, all in the third period, the Kitimat Ice Demons used special teams to take the 7-3 victory on home ice against the Quesnel Kangaroos. Kitimat got the tying goal in the first period, with 9:24 remaining, with Derek Wakita scoring, assisted by Blaine Markwart and Ian Coleman. The Ice Demons then grabbed the lead just 19 seconds later with Josh Slanina (Derek De Lisser, Ben Rumley) scoring his first of two in the game. Into the third, Kitimat, with Jeff Mildenberger in the box for a

tripping call, got great work from the defence and extended its lead to 4-2 as Derek DeLisser got his second goal, the first of Kitimat’s three short-handers, from Kyle Boudreault. It was DeLisser’s second “shortie” in two games. Justin Fulton pulled Quesnel back to 4-3, but DeLisser with a power-play goal minutes later completed his hat-trick for the game (Josh Slanina, Wade Masch). It was DeLisser’s fifth goal and seventh point in two games. The Demons were on the road playing in Prince Rupert on October 12, and go against the Houston Luckies in Houston on October 19.
