Ruth Lloyd Caledonia Courier The Fort St. James Sustainability Group is planning a rally in Fort as part of a national day of action. The Defend Our Climate, Defend Our Communities national day of action, initiated by the group Defend Our Coast, is planning rallies across B.C. to oppose the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline. The rally in Fort St. James is planned for Nov. 16 at 2 p.m. in Spirit Square. The Fort St. James Sustainability Group said they are hoping to bring together a diverse group from the community, including rural residents, First Nations and those living in town. “We call on Christy Clark to stand strong for B.C.,” said Brenda Gouglas of the Sustainability Group in a release. “The Province’s submission to the Joint Review Panel for Northern Gateway acknowledged that, ‘For most open ocean spills, no oil from a spill is recovered, the oil remains in the environment,’ and a recent report released by the province outlined B.C.’s inadequate spill response capability. Given these realities, Christy Clark must uphold her rejection of this project.” The group is hoping to draw attention to the issue and rally opponents to the pipeline prior to the Northern Gateway Joint Review Panel decision release expected in December.

Courier A line in the sand

Ruth Lloyd Caledonia Courier What would a couple of hip young men from two of the largest cities in Canada with no previous connection to the place be doing in Fort St. James in November you ask? Creating a Line in the Sand, of course. Jean-Philippe Marquis of Montreal and Tomas Borsa of Vancouver are working on a multi-media documentary project called Line in the Sand about the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline. The pair were in Fort St. James to speak to locals, activists and political leaders to hear how they think the project may impact the area and their lives. While there may be some confusion at this point due to the name, because an underground documentary on the proposed Keystone XL pipeline and a film on America’s borders already exist with nearly the exact title, this is a separate project. This project was originally founded by Borsa and two friends, Skyler Flavelle and Tristan Becker. The group was interested in pipelines and the Northern Gateway project specifically. “It was kind of the issue of the day,” said Borsa, yet he felt it wasn’t getting a lot of attention in Alberta or where he was, in Saskatchewan going to school. Instead the group thought the media coverage was creating an oversimplification of the issue, making it B.C. versus Alberta, the environment versus the economy and First Nations versus non-First Nations. So they set out to dig up more than what

Tomas Borsa and Jean-Philippe Marquis were in Fort St. James as part of a documentary project called Line in the Sand. Jean-Philippe Marquis photo was being reported by traditional media and because Borsa said “the joint review panel process has excluded a huge number of people and we thought that it was setting a dangerous precedent to allow such a huge range of voices to kind of go unheard.” The group wanted to be able to understand and discover the nuances of the proposed pipeline and thought hearing those voices might help. The founders were all from Saskatchewan and felt because of this they might be “better positioned to listen to either sides’ arguments,” said Borsa. While he said the group did not start out to take a side one way or the other on the issue of the pipeline, “what it has become more about is understanding and embodying and empathizing with people living along the route and coming to terms with the fact that one side really does have more at stake than the other.” “It was a little bit curiosity and a little the sense that people living along the route were being let down and were being talked for rather than being talked to,” said Borsa. The project began in Bruderheim, Alberta,

where diluted bitumen would be put into the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline and followed the proposed route out to where the bitumen would be loaded onto ships at a terminal in Kitimat, B.C.. The plan was to go in and “give each side their due” said Borsa, but “quite immediately when we were in Alberta we encountered … definite indifference, at best some ambivalence towards the project from the everyday person,” said Borsa. “When we would reach out to Enbridge they would not return our calls or they would hang up, when we would speak to mayors of towns or boards of commerce, they would give us the same answers over and over and over … they were talking points, PR sound bites, they weren’t actually talking with us.” This eventually led them to the conclusion the pro-pipeline side was not all that interested in discussing the project “it was almost treated as a done deal or an inconvenience to have to speak to the public at all,” said Borsa. Once in B.C., however, Borsa said the group experienced much more friendliness

...is back at

and people were receptive to working with the project. Moving westward along the proposed route, Borsa said the reception changed fairly dramatically. Borsa and Marquis are traveling through this time just the two of them, with background website support, as Flavelle deals with some health issues and Becker is working towards becoming a nurse. Along the way, they have met some interesting people and have been surprised by some of those who have spoken to them. Borsa mentioned Karl Mattson as being an interesting interview because he was “the furthest thing from a cliche you could ever get, he was just sort of the embodiment of how massive a range of people there are against the pipeline,” said Borsa. As a rancher and selftaught artist from Peace Country, Mattson is not the typical activist. One professor at the University of Northern B.C. they spoke to teaches an entire class on the pipeline and some of the issues around it. This is the second time the group has traveled along the route, though this time they

are bypassing Alberta because it is not really interesting for the project, it’s “kind of like going to Belfast and asking somebody what they thought about a wall.” So they are traveling this time through B.C., and more specifically the northwest going to places they had not yet made it to such as Terrace, Hartley Bay and Haida Gwaii (the latter two of which are not on the pipeline but are along the tanker route which would carry the bitumen from the pipeline to foreign markets).

• Guest editorial

Untangling oil pipeline politics Tom Fletcher Black Press Reaction was swift and scattered after the “framework agreement” on new oil pipelines announced last week by B.C. Premier Christy Clark and Alberta Premier Alison Redford. First, here’s what it doesn’t mean. “B.C. blinked,” according to one Toronto commentator, based on the popular notion that B.C. gave up its claim to a share of Alberta’s resource royalties from heavy oil. Clark never made such a claim, so it would be difficult to give it up. Her often-repeated condition of a “fair share” of revenues from any new oil pipelines is purposely vague, but after repeated protests from Alberta, Clark clarified as far back as last June that provincial royalties are not on the table. There is no constitutional way to make such a demand, a point Redford has made several times. NDP leader Adrian Dix and the usual chorus of professional protesters claimed that Clark flip-flopped, opposing the Enbridge Northern Gateway proposal before the election and then embracing it once she was re-elected. This is also inaccurate. Clark’s five conditions were set out before the May election, demanding approval by  a  federal environmental review, “world-leading” spill preven-

tion and response capability on land and at sea, meeting legal requirements to consult and share benefits with aboriginal communities, and the undefined “fair share” for B.C. Clark said numerous times during the campaign that the conditions have not been met, and made pessimistic noises about Northern Gateway, but she very carefully did not campaign against it. The B.C. Liberal platform also endorsed a Kitimat-area oil refinery proposed by this newspaper’s owner, and Clark repeatedly referred to that sort of industrial expansion as one of the potential “fair share” components for B.C. The B.C. Liberal government made its opposition to Northern Gateway “as currently proposed” official on May 31, two weeks after the election, in its final submission to the federal review panel. If Clark had wanted to jump on the anti-pipeline bandwagon for political gain, that move could have been made earlier. NDP environment critic Spencer Chandra Herbert said the B.C. government has taken the position that more oil will reach the West Coast, by rail if not by pipeline. I’m not sure if or when that claim was made, but it’s true that rail shipments are already permitted. Here’s what Redford and Clark agreed on. Redford accepts B.C.’s five conditions, provincial royalties excluded, and Clark endorsed Redford’s proposed “Canadian Energy Strategy,” which B.C. rejected last year.

Look for us online at : caledoniacourier.com

A draft of the strategy released last summer contains no specifics on how it would facilitate a pipeline project from Alberta to B.C. It talks about developing Canada’s energy reserves and at the same time somehow reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and promises a final version next spring. Oh, and Quebec refuses to participate. Ottawa has sole jurisdiction over interprovincial projects such as Northern Gateway and the proposal by Kinder Morgan Canada to expand the 60-year-old Trans Mountain pipeline to Burnaby and refineries in Washington. If there is to be some extra revenue for B.C. from oil traffic, it could theoretically take the form of a toll on pipelines. Redford pointed out the problem with that idea in her speech to an energy forum in Vancouver last week. She noted that 42 per cent of B.C. natural gas is piped through Alberta to markets. If B.C. can toll Alberta oil, the same could be done with B.C. gas. None of B.C.’s five conditions has yet been met. Legally, they don’t have to be, except for the one about accommodating aboriginal title.

• Letter At veterans’ expense Editor:  The Conservatives have a lot of explaining to do.  Last year, their government found money to increase spending in the Prime Minister’s Office, yet it cut funds for veterans’ funerals. In 2012-2013, after 10 years of fairly steady funding, the Last Post Fund, which helps pay for veterans’ funerals, was cut by a whopping 21.8%.  Meanwhile, the Prime Minister increased his own office budget by 7.4 per cent.  Instead of money for our fallen heroes, the Harper Conservatives are spending Canadians’ tax dollars on PMO staff and spin. It has long been inappropriate that the Last Post Fund’s outdated criteria excludes all but a few veterans since the Korean War, depriving them of a dignified funeral and burial because of financial means. Yet, it is simply insulting that this government has chosen to invest in additional staff to control their caucus members and their message – in the midst of the ongoing PMO-Senate scandal – instead of our courageous women and men in uniform, who have made great sacrifices in the service of this country. The Conservatives need to re-think their priorities.  Our veterans should be looked after with care and respect, not nickel and dimed.   Jim Karygiannis, MP Liberal Party Veterans Affairs Critic

From Page 3 The group was drawn to Fort St. James by the work being done by Nak’azdli through the Yinka Dene Alliance. It was the Yinka Dene Alliance which helped inspire the project in the first place, as the Freedom Train, which took many of those opposed to the pipeline across the country by train to Toronto for Enbridge’s AGM in 2012. The train made stops along the way to meet with local First Nations and hold ceremonies to draw attention to their cause. The train stopped in Saskatoon, where Borsa was going to university and held a ceremony and gave some talks. “It was really really really moving and interesting,� said Borsa. “That left a lasting impression.� He then began researching who the Yinka Dene Alliance were and those who were excluded from the joint review panel process. “It was well-intentioned but poorly executed,� said Borsa of the joint review process. Through the passage of Bill C-38 by the Conservatives, the number of people able to present at the joint review panel has been greatly reduced and timelines for these types of processes have also been reduced, so the group was hoping to reach out to people who have felt excluded from the process. The entire project, consisting of video, photographs, interviews and audio will then be used to create a number of documentary products. One goal is to create an interactive map with clips of interviews and images from along the route which will be posted on their website, hopefully by early December. There will also be a coffee table book, which will have an expanded mandate to look at the growing opposition to pipelines in the area. They would also like to produce a documentary, which may be a feature-length film or as shorter parts. The website and blog to see more on the project can be viewed at www.lineinthesand.ca.

Moerman has devoted more than 25 years to the compilation of the ethnobotanical knowledge slowly gathered over the course of many centuries and recorded in hundreds of firsthand studies of American Indians made over the past 150 years. This research has yielded a treasure-trove of information whose magnitude will surprise even those familiar with the anthropological and botanical literature: it documents Native American use of 4,029 kinds of plants with a total of 44,691 usages. This massive volume of 927 pages is available for consultation in the library’s reference collection. His Native American Medicinal Plants: An Ethnobotanical Dictionary is an 899 page abridgement of the larger work which focuses on the essential medicinal materials (3000 plants used by 218 Native American tribes). The abridgement is available to be borrowed. Both volumes have extensive indices including break down by tribe. Carrier, Northern Carrier and Southern Carrier are covered.

The ocean — Vast. Deep. A limitless pool of life. A playground for the tiny and giant things that live within it. And a gateway to the other side. The ocean should remain an ocean. Always. The Northern Gateway Pipeline will protect our oceans by ensuring all tankers are guided by certified BC Coast Pilots with expert knowledge of BC’s coastline. This is just one of the ways we are working to meet BC’s five conditions. Because a better pipeline will not be built at the expense of making other things worse. Find out more at gatewayfacts.ca

Namecalling not a crime

RCMP are reminding the public that being called names or name-calling is not a crime. While not a criminal matter, name-calling can become a civil matter and should an individual choose to pursue it, they could look at filing a civil suit against someone for slander or defamation of character. However, calling the RCMP for matters of name-calling can be a waste of police resources. A recent incident in which RCMP were called to a residence on Tache Reserve for a complaint of someone uttering threats turned out to be a matter of name-calling. If threats are not involved, then namecalling is not a criminal matter and the RCMP do not need to be called.
