Food Bank moving out Cameron Orr The Kitimat Food Bank, which has been in the City Centre Mall for five years, will have to find a new home as early as the end of January. The lease they hold with the mall is not being renewed, so as of January 31 — or later if they can arrange a month-to-month lease — they’ll have to either be in a new home, or Kitimat may see a temporary hiatus of a crucial community program. Food Bank President Marjorie Phelps said they want the word out that they’re looking for a new home. The Food Bank does have a preference checklist for potential new homes, which includes being on a transit route and in an affordable spot. So the Service Centre, with no bus access, couldn’t work for them. “It should be fairly central because our clients have to use public transit or walk or bum a ride from someone,” said Food Bank Vice-President Bill Willis. But he doesn’t intend to leave their current location on a sour note with the mall owner. “This place, we’re really, really grateful for getting this place at the price,” he said. “It was a lifesaver for us because we were in Nechako Centre...the only reason it wasn’t condemned is because we were still there.” Phelps said that depending on what location they eventually find, they may go to the community — either to the District, from which they don’t receive money from now, or other donors — for a boost to help them afford Kitimat’s new rent. “We know the rent’s going to be high because of the economy right now,” she said. “Maybe there is someone in town who can help us out.” They’ll be crossing their fingers they can find a place with enough space. Right now they have a number of refrigerators and freezers, in addition to the fully stocked shelves of non-perishable food. They also use their location for initial stockpiling for the Christmas Hamper program. “I supposed we could do with a little bit less, but not much,” said Phelp. But no one really believes the Food Bank will have to close its doors, even though it’s a possibility on a short term basis. “We’re doing everything we can possibly think of to keep ourselves in business,” said Willis. We reached out to City Centre Mall owner Jerry Minni on this subject, but he said it’s a matter between landlord and tenant and wouldn’t comment.

Case files routinely up from 2012 Common assaults notably up, 69 more cases this year than last year
While Staff Sergeant Phil Harrison tempered the “bad” news on this month’s crime statistics noting that calls for service was relatively quite low for September — at 335 calls — he was open that in many categories the amount of files now beats the number of files they had at this time in 2012. Sexual assaults now beat 2012’s total files of 12, with 13 this year after three new files in September. There were no aggravated assaults, but the three total for the year still exceed’s 2012’s single file. Assault with a weapon and assault causing bodily harm saw five cases opened in September, now bringing to even this year and last year’s total of 24 files. Common assaults meanwhile remain way up from last year. After 24 files opened in September the year so far has seen 165 cases. In 2012 there were 96. One robbery in the month brought
2013’s total to six cases. There were two in 2012. This year there have been 19 criminal harassment files, four from September. There were 17 in 2012. There were no business break and enters, but the year total is still 16, against 2012’s eight. There was one residential break and enter, meaning eight more cases this year than 2012’s 30. Three vehicle thefts were reported, bringing the year total to 34. There were 14 in 2012. Nineteen files were opened for mischief to property under or over $5,000. There were actually more reported in September of last year, 24, but 2013’s total of 195 still beats 2012’s 160. Remarkably, drug offence files are down, or at least are not up in any significant fashion. One cocaine possession brought this year’s total files to seven, one less than

2012’s total. There was also one marijuana possession case opened, but there’s been only 19 this year, compared to 28 in 2012. There have been no other “other drugs” possessions this year. There were no trafficking offences in September either, but there have been six cocaine trafficking files this year in total, which is up two from 2012’s four. As Harrison gave his report to councillors, Rob Goffinet inquired why shoplifting files were so low (three in total for the year, none in September) and Harrison suggested it was because businesses much of the time won’t want to pursue charges that might not go very far in the system. Meanwhile on the vehicle thefts, he said the RCMP were aware that the majority of the cases were the work of about half a dozen people, and the police have taken steps to stop any further activity.

Mill closing The West Fras‑ er Timber Company has decided, due to the mountain pine beetle infestation in the B.C. interior, to shut down its Houston mill before summer 2014. The Mountain Pine Beetle Plan, released last Thur‑ day on the WFTC website, covers how the company plans to remain vi‑ able in the wake of the pine beetle dec‑ imating available timber, the release stated. “The three‑part MPB Plan consists of the exchange of certain timber rights which will help maintain the c o m p e t i t ive n e s s and viability of sev‑ eral of West Fraser’s B.C. interior mills,” read the WFTC re‑ lease. “The closure of West Fraser’s Houston, B.C. mill and the announce‑ ment of significant investments in two major mill upgrades in Smithers and 100 Mile House, B.C.” “Closure of the mill will be com‑ pleted in the second quarter of 2014 and will affect 225 em‑ ployees,” stated the release. “Where possible, the Com‑ pany will be assist‑ ing employees to transition to other West Fraser opera‑ tions in B.C. and Alberta.” WFTC has been harvesting pine beetle killed lumber for more than a decade and will continue to do so according to the release, but the The MPB Plan, which consists of three parts: “secur‑ ing an improved long‑term timber supply, the perma‑ nent closure of one of the company’s B.C. mills and a capital investment plan to strengthen operations in the province,” has been chosen by the com‑ pany as the best way forward.

Seeking decriminalization Cameron Orr Canvassers for the Sensible BC campaign to decriminalize mari‑ juana have to Decem‑ ber 5 to get hundreds of thousands of signatures to spark a referendum vote. In the Kitimat area, and surrounding elec‑ toral district, Zachary Canuel is the district coordinator, a Kitimatraised young man who has seen the trouble criminalized marijuana can bring. He said six years ago when he was 18, he was detained by police on suspicion of mari‑ juana possession — no criminal charges fol‑ lowed — but that mo‑ ment is what brought him out to fight for marijuana decriminal‑ ization today. But one thing he wants people to know is the campaign isn’t about giving the people the ability to just get high. “A lot of people don’t realize it has nothing to do with get‑ ting high, it’s about the fact that our expendi‑ tures in law enforce‑ ment have achieved nothing. Drugs are stronger, more acces‑ sible, cheaper than they’ve ever been,” he said. And it’s not a path to free access to mari‑

He said it needs to be sold care‑ fully, such as liquor in designated liquor stores, and regulated similarly. In fact alcohol it‑ self is not even as safe as marijuana, he says. “Alcohol is more dangerous than most of the illicit drugs that are out there.” Kitimat, as well as Terrace and Smithers, has been a receptive community to the cam‑ paign, he said. There’s only the occasional scowled face from people who pass by. “It’s easy to shrug those people off when pretty much 90 per cent of the people I see are very supportive,” he said.
With a need for 15 per cent of the sig‑ natures of registered voters, he said they’re looking to gather 3,090 names in the Skeena riding. Province-wide most campaigners are behind in hitting their milestones, while Canuel said he’s about half-way there locally. “Being a little bit behind on the first half of the campaign, we’ve got to get things in gear,” he said. “I’m sure the Skeena area is doing a lot better than certain other parts of the province. I’m not too worried about our area.” At the campaign’s 30-day mark, Sen‑ sible BC spokesman Dana Larsen said the

Putting the ‘health’ in health care service Health care is on my mind this week. Partially that’s because I’ve spent the week physically feeling like I’ve been run into a rock wall by one of Wil-E-Coyote’s eternally defective Acme Roadrunner traps. But it’s also because the whole debate about health care workers being required to get the flu shot is in the news again. The introduction on the policy, where people in the health care field would either need to get immunized or wear a mask during the flu season, was objected to by the health care unions. But a labour arbitrator rejected those objections. As Black Press provincial reporter Tom Fletcher wrote in his report on this, the Health Sciences Association, a union representing lab techs and other specialists in the health care system, had argued that its members were entitled to make their own decision on whether to get the annual vaccine. The report continues, arbitrator Robert Diebolt wrote that given the seriousness of influenza, a severe respiratory condition that causes death in frail elderly people each winter, increasing immunization protection is a reasonable policy for health care facilities. I’m quite happy that this decision has come down. I thought when this whole issue erupted that it was quite silly. I won’t pretend I like needles but if my job involved caring for people who are sick, it seems fair that immunization would be a part of the work. It protects the health care worker from the flu, and protects their patients. If I were a patient I’d certainly want to know my health care worker took reasonable steps not to be infectious. The union may say getting a flu shot is a personal health decision, but it’s really not when you’re responsible for other people’s health.
I’m not saying the results are wrong, because I think they did pick out the nicest looking places in town, but with this year’s business recognition awards, I couldn’t help but notice all but one of the City Centre businesses on the awards and honourable mentions list were for fast food places. Dairy Queen won overall and most improved, certainly for their recent renovations, and Tim Hortons, Subway, and A&W all made the list. Envision Financial was the only other business on the list. It’s just a good reminder that local businesses should take care that they’re looking out for the look of the town, and not just leave it to fast food.

of the perceived spill risks of an underground pipeline across northern B.C. and to allow Canada to get out of the Keystone and Gateway pipeline bottlenecks that have frustrated the industry by forcing it to sell oil at hugely discounted prices into a satisfied U.S. market. This is seen as costing Canada millions of dollars annually. Last week’s throne speech announcements that Ottawa plans to both tighten safety standards for railway shipping companies or those operating offshore, or running pipelines and obviously increased liability insurance can only drive up the cost of moving oil by rail. The government simply could not ignore a need to step up the safety elements of hazardous goods transportation. The recent incidents have not yet given pause to the rapid increases in the volume of shipments of oil by rail, up incrementally in the past three years, while pipelines have been under the gun. Last month environmental activists for Greenpeace said documents in their possession showed CN Rail, pushed by Chinese-owned Nexen Inc., is considering shipping Alberta bitumen to Prince Rupert, B.C., by rail in quantities matching the controversial Northern Gateway pipeline.

Energy prices making for interesting debates Toshimitsu Motegi is not a happy camper these days. Neither is Veerappa Moily. The Japanese minister of Economy, Trade and Industry and the Indian Energy minister respectively, they and their governments are ticked off by the price they are having to pay for their LNG (liquefied natural gas) imports. And they forcefully expressed their displeasure at an LNG producer-consumer conference held in Tokyo early August. What’s driving them really crazy is they are having to cough up around $16 per million British Thermal Units (mmbtu) while natural gas is freely available in the United States at dirt cheap prices - around $3.70/mmbtu at Henry Hub at the time of writing. (By the way, Canadian natural gas is even cheaper.) The problem of course is that Asian LNG prices are traditionally linked to the price of oil via an index with the wonderful name
some Asian buyers have already signed long term contracts with US producers-to-be based on Henry Hub prices. One such US outfit by Malcolm Baxter is Freeport LNG which firstname.lastname@example.org announced last month it Japanese Crude Cocktail. had signed 20-year deals The buyers argue that with with Toshiba of Japan and SK of North American prices where they South Korea at a price of Henry are and a lot more LNG produc- Hub plus $7/mmbtu. tion expected to come on line In other words, based on toaround the world in the coming day’s Hub price and rounding up, years, it is time to de-link from oil only $11/mmbtu. and establish a global commodity (Henry Hub is a major distrimarket for LNG. bution point in Louisiana and its They’ve sung this song be- name is applied to natural gas fufore, of course. tures contracts.) But what was new this time However, producers both is Japan and India have agreed to existing and proposed are unimform a buyers group - which other pressed. Asian countries are encouraged Qatar is the largest to join - with the goal of bringing producer of LNG in the pressure to bear on suppliers and world and supplies both ending what they call “the Asian Asian and European cuspremium”. tomers. And they point to the fact that At that same confer-
ence its oil minister, Mohammad Bin Saleh al-Sada, essentially said what is happening to prices in a “remote market” (read North America) was irrelevant to the Asian market. In other words Qatar is not likely to buckle to pressure any time soon. Appearing just as unyielding is Chevron, the lead partner in the proposed Kitimat LNG project. In a conference call to announce the company’s second quarter results, CEO George Kirkland left no doubt: “We do not plan to have Henry Hub linkage.” This was consistent with the company’s oft-repeated position that it needed oil-indexed prices to justify spending billions of dollars
to build the Kitimat LNG plant and pipeline to supply it. But he also threw out an interesting idea: if Asian customers bought equity in the project, in the long term they might do as well, if not better, than Henry Hub-based contracts. Basically his argument is that if a customer buys into the project, what they lose on the swings (oil-indexed prices) they gain on the roundabouts (a share of the revenues from the project). And they get a guaranteed price whereas the cost of contracts tied to Henry Hub will likely increase over time, thus eroding any supposed benefit. It will be fascinating to see how this plays out.
Raising questions on LNG development Dear Sir, “The cleanest LNG in the world,” and “100,000 new jobs,” are among the many promises being made by government and industry about the benefits of LNG development. There is strong support for LNG development from First Nations, who are determined to address the chronic issues of poverty in their communities. There is also support from folks who are simply trying to get by. And there is opposition: from First Nations who have refused permission for pipelines to cross their lands, to folks who don’t want to see this region transformed into a Fort McMurray. While our region has seen dozens of de-
velopments proposed, and subsequently abandoned over many decades, we’ve never faced a push for major resource development that is so complex and challenging to understand as LNG. We live here because we were born here, or chose to be here but the economic issues we’ve faced regionally, as smelter jobs disappeared and the forest industry nosedived, are real. So we need to figure this LNG thing out. We know there are questions about LNG that aren’t being asked or answered, and both supporters and opponents are troubled about its sheer pace and scale. There are serious questions about air quality, increases in tanker traffic, First Na-
Continued from page 4 Greenpeace, according to the Canadian Press, claimed internal memos obtained by them under the Access to Information Act show CN raised the proposal in the spring with Natural Resources Canada to transport oil to Prince Rupert, according to departmental briefing notes setting up a March meeting.

We need to talk about how much development is enough. Many residents are asking these questions. We don’t presume to know all the answers to these questions, but we are going to try hard to present factual and unbiased information.

Weather keeps GasLink reps away, but make it to Terrace Josh Massey While TransCanada representatives were meant to be in Kitimat on October 21, foggy conditions meant they couldn’t land. Those people did eventually make it to Terrace a day later to host a meeting there and meet with their councillors. Terrace Council heard from Joe Zhou, project manager for the proposed Coastal GasLink Pipeline, a subsidiary company of TransCanada that is proposing a 650-kilometre pipeline to carry natural gas to an LNG processing facility in Kitimat. Zhou said that construction crews would be in and out of the Terrace area over three years sometime within the planned 2015 to 2020 construction period. Zhou said there will be 2,000 seasonal construction jobs for the entire pipeline that passes north of Prince George, crosses Highway 16 near Fraser Lake on its way to a Shell majority-owned processing facility proposed for Kitimat called LNG Canada. Camps will be located close to the rightof-way and will have anywhere from 50 to 1,500 hundred workers in them, said Zhou. The closest the pipeline will come to Terrace is 50 kilometres. He said the impact on local infrastructure of this particular project would be minimal, however he said he could not speak for other projects and the impact they might have on top of this. “We might place some stress on the infrastructure on roads to get to the sites,” said
Zhou, but stressed that TransCanada’s goal is “to be self-sufficient instead of relying on the community to house workers.” Several of Terrace’s council members want-
414 enterprise ave.
Stacey Tyers told Zhou, citing the Kitimat Modernization Project and Northwest Transmission Line as drivers of high housing costs. Zhou said Coastal Gas Link hopes to sub-
mit their application for an environmental assessment in early 2014, and will be back in Terrace for the public consultation process, that is part of the assessment, next spring.

Tattoo parlour gets zoning Cameron Orr Councillors unanimously approved a rezoning application which will allow a tattoo parlour â€” which currently is a home-based business â€” into Nechako Centre. Numerous letters came in regarding the application, all in favour of the business, with some making comments to how the business should be visible to the public, namely the activities should be kept discreet from potential children walking by. Such practices have been promised by business operator Claire Rattee, who presented to councillors at an earlier council meeting. In making the motion, Mario Feldhoff amended staffâ€™s own recommendation to adopt the zoning, rather than going only as far as third reading.
â€œWe donâ€™t need to drag this out any longer,â€? he said. Rob Goffinet said before the vote that it is understood by all that it will be a â€œwell situatedâ€? and â€œdiscreetly laid out parlour,â€? to alleviate the concerns from the letters. Deputy Chief Administrative Officer Warren Waycheshen read out seven submissions that were received through the public comment. As for the nuts and bolts of the â€œPersonal Service Shopsâ€? bylaw, such a business is defined as â€œwhere the sale of retail goods is only accessory to the provision of services related to the care and appearance of the body or the cleaning and repair of personal affects.â€? By passing this bylaw, Personal Service Shops are now a permitted land use in C2 commercial zones.
CN CFO downplays oil by rail plans Shaun Thomas Oil-by-rail wonâ€™t be happening any time soon, according to the chief financial officer of CN Rail. Luc Jobin, who is CFO and executive vicepresident, made the comments after being asked about shipping crude to a B.C. port for export during the companyâ€™s Oct. 22 earnings call. â€œThereâ€™s no project. Thereâ€™s no infrastructure on the Canadian west coast to receive crude by rail. There is no project proponent. Thereâ€™s really no support,â€? he said. â€œI donâ€™t think itâ€™s in a kind of a near-term type of potential.â€?
However, CN CEO Claude Mongeau said oilby-rail is a viable alternative and a part of CNâ€™s business. â€œWe move more than 99.997 per cent of dangerous goods to market without incidents and we have to keep getting better. And if we do, I believe we are a viable alternative to move all the energy projects â€” products, including crude,â€? he said, noting both heavy and light crude is currently being moved. â€œWe believe this is there to stay with us, as long as we continue to operate a safe railroad, which we are committed to do.â€?

Mountain biking trailblazing Cameron Orr This is Nik Berndt’s last stand to get a mountain biking and hiking trail system built in the area. He gathered potential supporters for a meeting on October 20, and is trying to organize the movement into a non-profit organization. Right now they just go by the name Kitimat Trailbuilders and can be found on Facebook. “What we’re trying to do now as a group we’re trying to come up with a name to go ahead with this non-profit society,” said Berndt. If they can get the society established, they can begin applying for grants to build the trail systems he hopes to see. It’s Berndt’s second time trying to get a society like this established. He said several years ago he tried and approached the city but he felt he was effectively brushed off. But today he has a solid community support and people are pitching in to get this idea off the ground.
Continued from page 1 “Because it is a contract that is for five more years…to wait another five years would be wrong,” she said. Mary Murphy meanwhile said that with a contract just recently entered into, as well as no actual complaints or concerns from the contractor, there’s no reason council should be worrying about this. “I’m opposed to changing the contract as it stands now until the term is up,” she said. When the vote was called Edwin Empinado, Corinne Scott and Phil Germuth were the three votes against maintaining the current schedule.
His interest in mountain biking began with races he did when he was in grade 8. Today, he thinks mountain biking is a good alternative to kids hanging out at the skate park exclusively. From his own days as a student he said he knows there can be bad things passed around in those groups. And with the town getting busier, he’s worried it’ll just get worse. “There’s a lot more harsher things now coming in to town than when I was a kid, at least from what I’ve noticed,” he said. And the Riverlodge doesn’t always provide relevant, modern programming, he added. “I haven’t seen any mountain biking stuff,” he said. But Kitimat isn’t, so far, ideally set up for mountain biking anyway. “I wish Kitimat had something better. A lot of the trails around here are not legitimate, they’re actually illegal because
they’re on private property.” He said he has gotten permission from some landowners to use trails on their property but it’s always an imperfect solution. “We’re trying to make everything legitimate, get everything going.” So far he said he does have the support of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. He also has told supporters than there’s a good chance if trails start getting built, a bike shop could easily follow, either run by him or a collaboration of people. Between working six days a week and on his way to buying a house, Berndt is burning the candle from both ends getting this organized, but he’s hopeful to see things taking shape early next year. “I’m aiming to have everything ready to go and we can start putting shovels in the ground by the time the snow’s gone in the spring,” he said.
Submitted The Demons were still on the road last weekend in Terrace and Prince Rupert, looking to regain momentum after two losses the weekend before. The Kitimat Ice Demons dropped both of their first double-header weekend games on the road, getting blanked 4-0 on October 19 night by a stingy Houston Luckies defence and hot goaltender, Colton Wardrop, and then the Demons were unable to sustain a third period comeback to tie the game, getting edged 4-3 in a penalty filled affair with the Steelheads October 20 at Smithers. The Houston Luckies came out strong to score one in the first period. Meanwhile the Ice Demons, prominently missing defensive stalwart Jeff Mildenberger, who did not make the trip, had weary bus legs and were not at their best in the early going and into the second period of this game. Meanwhile the Ice Demons moved in looking for some better luck in goal-scoring at Smithers, but fell behind 2-1 early in the second period after each team recorded a goal in the first. In other games that past weekend the Prince Rupert Rampage came up with their first win, dropping the Terrace River Kings 3-2 in Terrace while the Williams Lake Stampeders split two games the Stamps winning Friday night by a score of 6-4 and Quesnel took the close Saturday game 5-4.
