What happened to the bear? By ANNA KILLEN IT'S A small town mystery. For nearly two decades folks driving into Terrace over the old bridge have been witness to a white-painted Kermode bear on the rock face facing the bridge. But that painting was covered over with what appears to be black or rock-coloured paint sometime late last month. And as of late last week, the town still didn’t have any answers

as to what happened to it – and what, if anything, would take its place. The painted Kermode bear has a funny Terrace history – it appeared as an attempt to cover up a Playboy bunny insignia that was painted on the rock face in the early '90s. In the June 30, 1993 issue of The Terrace Standard, the bunny's artist says he and a friend “decided on the Playboy bunny because he liked the shape.” The article continues, “When

the two have spare time, they climb up the mountain, attach themselves to ropes, hang over the cliffside and start painting.” The bunny was painted to cover up a spray painted “90”, likely a prank by members of the 1990 graduating class. The bunny prompted spirited letters to the editor over the summer of 1990, with one letter writer calling it “visual pollution” and asking someone to paint over it with grey paint.

But that didn't happen. A Kermode bear – more suited as a northwest regional symbol – was eventually painted overtop. And there the Kermode bear has sat, welcoming travellers into Terrace, even being spruced up with fresh white paint from time to time throughout the years. Reaction to the bear's removal is growing on social media, with the majority lamenting the loss of the bear and the memories they have of seeing it as they drove over

into town over the old bridge. On The Terrace Standard Facebook page, Courtney Haigh commented, “Upsetting. We don't live in Terrace anymore but love seeing it when we come back to visit!” Sheena Cooper  commented, “My kids are sad but they think the bear is hibernating.” Some are calling for the bear to be painted back as it was, while others are hoping an updated version will take its place.

Moose poachers sought By JOSH MASSEY


■■ History comes alive ECOLE MOUNTAINVIEW Grade 6 student Braedan Aubin tries on a tunic worn by a sergeant during the Boer War which took place more than 100 years ago. The tunic, and uniforms from the two world wars worn by other students, were used by Stan McKay, left, from the Branch 13 of the Royal Canadian Legion, during a Remembrance Day assembly Nov. 8 at the school to demonstrate how young soldiers were who fought in those and other wars.

CONSERVATION OFFICERS are on the lookout for one or more poachers who slaughtered a pregnant moose cow two weekends ago, leaving behind edible remains near Highway 113 south of Rosswood. “This is an ongoing problem for us,” said local conservation officer Gareth Scrivner, adding that leaving behind edible meat portions would be among fines amounting to several thousands of dollars that could be levied. “If anybody knows someone who recently returned from hunting with just three quarters of a moose, that would be of interest to us,” said Scrivner. “I suspect they shot right from the truck,” he continued of those who killed the moose. “We would probably take them to court.” The killing was one of several that Scrivner says have been endangering the already low moose population in the area. A six day open season on moose ended October 26, however only for bulls. The cows are protected because they keep the population growing through birthing new generations of moose, with only one male needed to service several cows, said Scrivner.

Third hotel planned A GROUP of Vancouver investors with hotel developments in other busy regions now has its eye fixed on Terrace. The group has purchased two large lots just to the west of Canadian Tire on Hwy16 with plans to build a hotel of 80-90 rooms, says group member Charles Sung Soo Kim, a Vancouver realtor. “With all that is going on, with natural gas in Kitimat and in Prince Rupert, Terrace is in the middle,” he said of the city’s location. The group’s customer base would be more focused on business and industrial travellers and not necessarily tourists, Kim added. “We think there is definitely room for more accommodation,” he said. The group already has a hotel in Dawson Creek and is working on a similar development in Alberta. The group does not yet have a name chosen nor a franchise affiliation determined, said


TWO PIECES of land immediately west of Canadian Tire on Hwy16 have been purchased by Vancouver investors who wish to build a hotel. Kim. Kim said the group decided Terrace was next on its list in anticipation of development growth through liquefied natural gas projects and other larger scale industrial projects in the area. The city also has the advantage of having an airport very close by, he said.

The lots in question, one which was residential and one which had an industrial-related use, together amount to three acres and were purchased for a combined price of just under $520,000. Kim said the immediate plan is to request rezoning to allow a commercial use, a prospect that fits the city’s

official community plan. The lot that had an industrial-related use will also need some environmental remediation, he said. The planned hotel would be the third such development planned for the city. A northwest chain called Sunshine Inn has purchased a lot, also fronting Hwy16, im-

mediately to the west of Kalum Tire. It is planning a construction start of next spring. And a Calgary company, Superior Lodging, has an option to buy nearly 2.8 acres of city-owned land on the old Co-op site on Greig. It is now waiting for the property to receive environmental clearance. A3

Anti-pipeline rally set for Saturday LOCALS IN Terrace and Kitimat are planning rallies Nov. 16 in opposition of Enbridge's planned Northern Gateway oil pipeline as part of a national campaign called “Defend our Climate, Defend our Communities.” “We support the Coastal First Nations’ [oil] tanker ban and the Save the Fraser declaration, and will stand with First Nations to defend our communities against the Northern Gateway pipeline, supertankers on our coast, and Christy Clark’s deals with Alison Redford and Big Oil,” says Anne Hill, a local organizer. BC premier Christy Clark and Alberta premier Alison Redford Nov. 5 reached a broad agreement in which Redford accepted Clark's conditions that would allow for pipeline construction provided projects achieve stringent environmental and other conditions as well as First Nations approval. Pipelines, however, fall under federal jurisdiction if they cross provincial boundaries and a federal review of the Northern Gateway proposal is to be submitted to the federal cabinet next month. B.C. also wants a share of any pipeline's economic benefits, something it would have to negotiate with pipeline companies and crude oil suppliers. The local rally is being held at Brolly Square beginning at 3 p.m. while the Kitimat rally takes place in the Mount Elizabeth high school gym starting at 2 p.m. Similar rallies are taking place in communities from Prince George to Prince Rupert.

Your Retirement: Maximizing Income, Minimizing Taxes Everyone dreams about a relaxing, enjoyable retirement. However, in today’s low interest rate environment, it is not always easy to find investments that can provide you with the income required for a comfortable worry-free retirement. This makes maximizing after-tax income, by minimizing the tax you owe, a critical part of your retirement planning process. When planning for your retirement, there are a number of strategies that can help you both pre and post retirement. Taking advantage of tax-free or tax-deferred investments such as RRSPs and TFSAs, or spousal RRSPs for income splitting reasons, are some pre-retirement strategies that could be considered. Post retirement strategies include tax efficient investments, pension income splitting and effective structuring of retirement income streams. To learn more about pre-retirement and post-retirement strategies, attend Northern Savings Credit Union’s “Maximizing Income, Minimizing Taxes” seminar: Date: Thursday, November 21 Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM Location: Northern Savings Credit Union 4660 Lazelle Avenue Meeting Room Space is limited.

Money pitch made by library, museum TWO GROUPS made financial requests to city council Nov. 5, marking the start of the city’s preparations leading to establishing its 2014 budget. The heads of the Terrace Public Library and the Terrace and District Museum Society, which operates Heritage Park on the bench, focused on the progress of programs and upgrades before requesting budget increases of 2 per cent and just under 1 per cent for salary increases and operation costs, respectively. Head librarian Margo Schiller spoke about the recently-installed elevator which has improved access to the Terrace Art Gallery located in the library’s downstairs space and about the library’s electronic checkout system. She added that 80 per cent of the money needed to convert the reference room into a reading room is in place and that construction will begin before the year is out. Some of the money was raised locally with the rest coming in the form of grants and is not coming from the city or the Kitimat-Stikine Regional District, Schiller added. The library is asking for a 2 per cent increase to cover rising costs in the coming year, mainly for salary increases that comprise 75 per cent of the total budget, as well as money for computer and IT service upgrades. A total of $85,000 is spent on acquisitions including books, ebooks, magazines, CDs, and subscription databases—compared to $400,000 on salaries. The total amount requested from both city and the KitimatStikine regional district is $599,900 for 2014 compared to $581,850 last year. The regional district contribution is raised through rural area taxes and enables rural residents to enjoy library services on the same level as people who live in the city. Schiller was accompanied by library board director David Try who

HEAD LIBRARIAN Margo Schiller stands in the Terrace Public Library’s elevator which opened in June and services the art gallery below. said that the pay increases reflects what is given to City of Terrace employees through their union agreement. Beyond the salary increase, there is also a rise in service expenses which includes $3,500 budgeted for maintenance of the self checkout machine and computer in the coming year. After an introduction by Kelsey Wiebe from the museum society, she was congratulated by mayor David Pernarowski on the events which took place at Heritage Park this year and on an increase in visitors in several categories. For the coming year the museum is also looking for a moderate hike to pay for rising cost in services, at $73,000 compared to $72,100 last year. Grant Piffer from the museum society board

also spoke, noting that the society is continuing to search for a downtown museum location which he hopes will be financed by a provincial non-profit association. He asked for a letter of endorsement from council. City finance director Ron Bowles told council that the requests are reasonable. “They are not asking for new services. Their costs are just going up,” said Bowles. The Terrace Economic Development Authority (TEDA) was also slated to make a presentation but its appearance was postponed. But council members did raise questions with councillor Brian Downie asking about a $25,000 deficit indicated in the authority’s overall financial plan. “The net loss shows a $25,000 deficit so obviously they must have

a previously accrued surplus,” said Downie. “I wonder where it would show the revenue from Minerals North. We keep hearing how successful it was and I don’t see that reflected here,” councillor Marylin Davies pointed out in referring to development authority’s hosting of minerals conference here in April. Downie, who is council’s alternate liaison with the development authority, said it acted as a sub group of a larger organization called the Minerals North Society so that the Terrace conference wouldn’t typically would be detailed in the authority’s own budget. “We want TEDA to come to council to explain the budget and answer that question,” Downie added. TEDA was scheduled to present at Monday’s council meeting.


From November 15 to April 01 Under Bylaw No. 1331-1993, every street, boulevard, alley and highway in the City of Terrace is designated as a snow removal route, and parking on them is prohibited during the winter months, from November 15th to April 1st.

OFFICIAL OPENING of the Northwest Regional Airport’s main runway extension in September 2005.

Aerial history The airport has, and will, play an important role in the local area

By LES WATMOUGH EARLY 1940 Terrace was a small river and railroad town right where it sits today. There was no road outside, no airport, no need for either one. Then came December 1941. Domination of the Pacific became the vital issue and air was the best protection available. But there were no airports or infrastructure on the coast of B.C. or Alaska. Airports needed to be built, a list that included Port Hardy, Sandspit, Ketchican, Alaska, Anchorage, Watson Lake, Stewart, Dease Lake, Smithers and Terrace. Construction of the Terrace airport started early 1942 and finished in 1943, commissioned as an active airforce base with Hurricanes and Spitfires and possibly some American types, offering protection to the west coast of Canada and southern Alaska. There was great secrecy of all military operations at that time so details were not available. The airport was decommissioned in 1945 and given to the federal transport depart-

ment. This was the time, 1944, of the army mutiny in Terrace, but the airport was airforce and did not participate. In fact they were supplied some heavy armour to repulse the “enemy.” There were no commercial activities while the airforce was in control. There was one design plan for all bases built at this time. Paved runways, all 4800 feet long, necessary taxi ways and hangars. Everything was well done to engineering standards of the time. Runway configuration was triangular, with one runway into the prevailing wind. The hangars would hold DC 3s or better, nothing was spared. Any plane that could land or get off the 4800 foot runways would fit in the hangar. Solid fir beams, twoinch planks for the roof, cement floors. There were two hangars and the usual weather stations and a control tower. A big project. Residences (barracks) were built and used until 1962. After the war, the Terrace airport was the

prize in a heavy weight competition between Queen Charlotte Air and CP Air over the allocation of the air route from Vancouver to Prince Rupert. CP Air won, with the support of friends in Ottawa, and ran the profitable route until Prime Minister Brian Mulroney went with the Open Skies disaster. With that program, Ottawa overlooked the fact that air, and the airports, were a national interest, a series of transport sites that linked the country together, just as the CP Rail did. This national structure was torn apart and the pieces given to every idiot that wanted a piece. Now YVR Vancouver makes millions every quarter and Smithers withers away. There were a lot of different, commercial passenger flight operators – CP Air, Air Canada, Queen Charlotte Air, Pacific Western, Trans Provincial. Even I had a two bit operation, Chisel Charter. The latter days have seen Hawkair, Jazz, some segments of CP and Air Canada and

Les Watmough soon, WestJet. There were some periods during which the airport had flying schools. There were two years with schools in the 60’s. Graduates include, but are not restricted to, Ray Sande Lloyd Johnstone, Don Hull and Jack Sharples. The next year graduates included, John Sarich, Joe Schultzic, myself, two unnamed brothers and Ton Stewart. Maintenance of the airport declined due to federal budget cuts. Until 1955 all three segments of the runways were used. In 1961 two runways were deemed unusable and only one active one remained. One of the hangars

was put up for sale and was purchased by the Town of Smithers and is still used as their number one ice palace. Terrace declined a similar opportunity. The remaining hangar, which was still very usable, burned to the ground in 1970 destroying several airplanes. The older admin buildings were rebuilt, then expanded to be what you use today. Remarkable planning, by Ottawa, went into that design. In the centre of the most remarkable scenery in the north, when seated in the restaurant, looking out the only available window, you see-what? The Sleeping Beauty? No. The parking lot full of rental cars. What does the Smithers rest area offer? The vast entire Hudson Bay Mountain, a classic vista of our northern mountains. For light air planes the tie-down area was accessed by turning off the taxiway, making a 180 degree turn, coming up to the tie downs. But there was a utility pole at the apex of that 180 turn that did not offer any protection to the wings of any air-

craft making that turn. The pole had no reason to be in that particular spot, unless it was designed to clip wing tips of student pilots. It worked well for that. The airport was always groomed for commercial traffic. It was seldom friendly to small private planes. And it served the commercial trade well in spite of the inclement winter weather. The Terrace airport won many awards for being the second most difficult one in the province, always losing out to Castlegar. This was no fault of designers, managers or other sundry employees. It was because of the weather and Little Herman Mountain. The weather did not like air planes and did its very best to cripple or kill them with early snow, heavy fog served up in an instant, early snow, heavy and wet or fast frozen. Little Herman was a low mountain right on the glide path to the main active runway and at a pinch point of elevation that caused real problems and some deaths. It became necessary to remove the trees

from its top to increase the clearance by 90 feet that was needed. This was done, the trees were taken down, but the young trees were left, and have been growing two feet a year for 15 years and are eating up the critical clearance. The airport has kept up with new technology. It is a safe airport, and serves the new turboprop types very well and has decreased the missed landings very considerably, making landings rather routine and completely safe. In Mulroney’s Open Skies realm the jargon was “the best airport will get the business; the others will die.” Terrace is the only airport for 150 miles, so if Smithers is better, drive 150 miles to access air travel. Right. As my very good friend Jim Wood said about reports made into regulations – “garbage in, garbage out.” Les Watmough, who passed away Oct. 27, was a former KitimatStikine regional district director and pilot who had a keen interest in local history. This was submitted shortly before his death.

Four beeps IT WAS an otherwise quiet evening at home with the youngest daughter tucked away in bed upstairs and my wife, oldest daughter and myself in the family room, catching the latest Rob Ford news on The National. That’s when four distinct beeps were heard. Then four more. My wife went to investigate, a trip that took her to our carbon monoxide (C0) detector plugged into a socket in the upper hallway. She read the back. Upon hearing four beeps, leave for a source of fresh air. Call 911. I was not so sure, content to fiddle with the detector, thinking it was malfunctioning. Our youngest daughter takes her school-taught safety instructions seriously. Out the door she went followed by my wife, oldest daughter and, reluctantly, myself. Two Terrace firefighters responded to the 911 call. At the front door, their own detector read high levels of carbon monoxide. One of the firefighters, wearing breathing apparatus, came back with news of a C0 spike at our old natural gas fireplace. A Pacific Northern Gas employee was called. Using his own detector, he zeroed in on the reason – a gap between two of the fireplace’s tempered glass pieces. That fireplace now awaits servicing. Our thanks to the quick responses by the firefighters and gas person. Two obvious lessons here. Buy a C0 detector. And always – always – listen to your wife and children.

A not so trustworthy occurrence

f you’re drawing up a will, this seniors’ tale may prompt you to reconsider who you’ll name as executor. Maud and Stephanie, spinsters in their early 80s, had been close friends for 15 years before Maud died naming a trust company as her executor. Always well paid in a responsible job, she had lived frugally renting a 650 square foot, two-bedroom apartment. Forsaken by estranged family who nevertheless hovered like vultures waiting to divvy up her possessions, in the final months before her death she revised her will leaving 90 percent of her $500,000 estate to Stephanie, the other 10 percent to another friend. Maud’s will stipulated Stephanie and the other friend were to help themselves to whichever of her possessions they chose – jewellery, fine pieces of furniture, high end clothing. Leftovers were to be donated to Goodwill. Every executor’s initial responsibility is to physically safeguard assets and documents by sealing the property from unauthorized visi-

CLAUDETTE SANDECKI tors, and itemizing the assets to record what they are. This Maud’s trust company failed to do. Relatives with door keys swooped in to cherry pick her belongings. (Who gave them Maud’s keys?) Charged to probate this simplest of wills, the trust company assigned Maud’s file to an insolent junior clerk. When Stephanie phoned with questions, or to request a meeting, this clerk snapped, “I’m too busy to talk to you”, or, “I have no time to meet with you.” Stymied and demoralized by this clerk’s supercilious treatment, Stephanie shared

her tribulations with a confidant, recounting actions far beyond the ethical realm of responsible executor behaviour: Instead of boxing Maud’s few remaining belongings, putting them in storage, and vacating the apartment, the trust company continued to rent Maud’s essentially empty apartment for seven months, squandering $14,000 of Maud’s estate. Why? Does the apartment manager have a friendly arrangement with this trust company? In addition, the trust company paid $4,150.12 for 67 hours of apartment cleaning by a subcontractor. Cleaning was explained to include sorting through Maud’s files, destroying any documents the subcontractor deemed worthless. What credentials did the subcontracting cleaning company have for perusing Maud’s private documents and what, if any, qualifications for deciding which documents were only trash? And despite Maud’s will clearly specifying once her two heirs had chosen what they wanted to keep, anything left over was to be donated to Goodwill, the trust


company sold her leftovers at auction. Photos purporting to show movers parked to haul away Maud’s leftovers are not closed Goodwill trucks. They look like disposal trucks. Stephanie’s confidant was stunned to learn of this executor’s breaches, greeting one revelation after another with a “Wow!” of disbelief. At the least, the trust company appears to have breached their contract with Maud, putting her assets at risk, ignoring her specified wishes. But what recourse does Stephanie have? Since the apartment was never sealed or Maud’s belongings itemized, what proof does Stephanie have of what may or may not have existed before unauthorized persons raided Maud’s apartment and helped themselves? She can hire a lawyer to take on the trust company, or she can contact the appropriate ombudsperson. Each financial company has its own ombudsperson to investigate clients’ complaints. So name a trust company to file taxes, along with a trusted personal friend as coexecutor to watch over the trust company.

The Mail Bag Fireworks scare pets


BEFORE THE aerial tramway was built to carry passengers over the Skeena River at Usk, people walked across when ice made using the ferry there impossible. Stakes in the ice helped guide passengers in this 1940s-1950s photo.

Workers deserve appreciation Dear Sir: It was good to see The Terrace Standard’s acknowledgment of the 100th anniversary of the launching of the Usk ferry (Oct. 16, 2013) and to attend the unveiling of a plaque at the ferry landing by the Ministry of Transportation. But equally deserving of recognition are the one hun-


dred years of service by the men and women who operated the ferry. The Skeena River is always treacherous with fast flood waters full of debris in the spring and fall, and in the winter, ice floes often jam in Kitselas Canyon and back up for miles, piling ice on the banks up to twenty feet deep.

The reaction ferry usually operated about seven summer months of the year, with a single ferry operator putting in twelve hour days, and often longer. The winter months were arguably far more hazardous to the operators. They made certain that passengers were able to cross

safely, using their knowledge of the river, and plain hard work. Before the present cable car system was installed, if the river was frozen over, those crossing the river would walk on the ice, which was checked by the ferryman who marked out a safe path.

Dear Sir: Who are the people that make the decision to allow fireworks to be sold and used with little or no control for days and days during the week of Hallowe’en with no regard for the rest of us or our pets? Do these people realize or care about the stress this causes our animals? I have worked for a vet in this city and I have also worked for the Thornhill and Terrace animal shelters and I can tell you firsthand how harmful and stressful this is to our pets and pet owners. I can tell you of cases of dogs jumping through plate glass windows and being injured badly and of dogs running off, never to be seen again because of days and days of endless fireworks going off. To my knowledge I have never heard of this practice anywhere else, but I am sure it will be corrected. I have no problem with fireworks being used once or twice a year for an hour to so.

Revenge is not always the best option

any Norwegians responded in disbelief and anger when it was announced that convicted mass murderer Anders Breivik had enrolled in a political science course at the University of Oslo. Allowing a mass murderer to enroll in a university course was going too far. The university’s rector, Ole Petter Ottersen, explained that Breivik will not be admitted to campus, and that he will pursue his studies in his cell. Ottersen held that changing the law which allows convicts to further their education, reacting specifically to Breivik’s crimes, would place Norway on a slippery slope. Ottersen reminded his fellow citizens that “Breivik will have to read about democracy and justice, and about how pluralism and respect for individual human rights, protection of minorities and fundamental freedoms have been instrumental for the historical development of modern Europe.” Ottersen had no further to look

for an example of the inefficiency of reactionary legislation than to Canada’s long gun registry, adopted in the aftermath of the École Polytechnique massacre of 1986 by Marc Lepine. Data provided by Statistics Canada show a marked decrease in rifle-related homicides in the year following the implementation of that law, but this had no effect on the acrimonious political debate on the subject of the gun registry. Enormous sums were invested in the implementation and subsequent repeal of the long gun registry, and while the rifle-related homicide rate did decline relative to homicides by other means, the legislation’s impact on the overall homicide rate was insignificant. We cannot know what results might have been achieved if the resources applied to the gun registry had instead been directed to understanding and addressing the conditions that lead to homicide. Why do each of the four western provinces consistently record the highest homicide rates in the


ANDRE CARREL country; each one higher than the Canadian average? Why is British Columbia’s homicide rate consistently higher, by 75 per cent, than Quebec’s homicide rate, notwithstanding that province’s reputation for criminal activities? For the last two decades, Canada’s murder rate has stubbornly remained in the highest third grouping of OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and

Development) countries. When will we start to direct some attention and resources to help us understand why eight OECD countries succeeded in cutting their murder rate in half and more over the past decade while Canada is one of eight OECD countries whose murder rate rose during that same period? The federal government decided to ditch the long gun registry and get tough on crime. “Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time” was the catchy motto for Baretta, a 1970s-era American detective TV series. Reality is not a TV drama, and exacting revenge by imposing minimum incarceration terms and cutting inmates’ pay for work performed is not likely to reduce Canada’s murder rate. “I would kill you if I could serve a short time in comfort, but not if I have to do 15 years of hard time” is not the likely scenario considered by a person about to commit murder. If tough on crime policies were effective, the United States would

not be competing with Chile and Mexico for the highest murder rate among OECD countries. The background of many violent offenders is marked by violence and depravation. A policy of revenge is more likely to confirm than to change their life experience. Public funds are best applied to the formative years of children, from daycare to college graduation. The experiences of these years shape life-long values. Best intentions and efforts cannot eliminate all risks of a Breivik or Lépine growing up in our midst. When faced with that reality we must resist the temptation to react by seeking revenge. We owe it to the victims of violent crimes to take Ottersen’s advice and provide such offenders with the opportunity to spend their time behind bars learning how democracy and justice, pluralism and respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms are the essence of a free society.

■■ Bridge work MINOR TRAFFIC delays on the Terrace side of the old bridge crossing the Skeena River were experienced when Nechako Northcoast crews worked on the underside of the bridge deck. That was to do repairs where concrete had broken away. It’s a fairly standard occurrence and takes place when corrosion enlarges the diameter of reinforcing bars, forcing small sections of concrete to break away. The same thing happens to concrete on bridge decks where it is much easier to repair.

NEID ENTERPRISES LTD. Letters to the editor

Two sides to story about the future Dear Sir: After reading the advertising for free skating that was circulated around Hazelton recently by the media, municipal politicians, Northern Health and the school district, I began to think about the thought process that may have been used by the Trans Canada Pipelines. Free public skating courtesy of TransCanada. Yup, no denying that. It is free, for TransCanada, but not for the taxpayers. Site C dam will be built using taxpayer dollars to supply the power to run the LNG industry. The oil and gas industry is among the heaviest subsidized industry in Canada. Free hot dogs and drinks. Hot dogs are an excellent replacement food when the salmon are diseased or dead. Consider the effect on salmon after numerous pipelines are built crossing fish bearing streams and a causeway

and LNG plant are built on some of the world’s best salmon habitat at the mouth of the Skeena. Free health screening by Northern Health. Good call guys! It is very appropriate for Northern Health to use taxpayers’ money to get health boards on line. Environmental degradation is always good for business at your local health authority and blood pressure and blood sugar may just be the beginning of our problems. Consider the health effects caused when tons of unknown chemicals are mixed with our most precious resource, water, and pumped under high pressure way underground in a little process they like to call fracking. Complimentary ice time to school groups. This is where the humour of this whole thing is lost to me. Sure winning the hearts and minds of our children must be part of the

whole plan. But is not the purpose of our lives to leave a better planet for our children? Our grandchildren and great-grandchildren will have a story to tell. One story could be about how their ancestors promoted the dirty fossil fuel economy and sat back and watched as greenhouse gas emissions climbed ever higher and global climate increased. They will tell of how the social and economic conditions deteriorated and how death and disease and wars over water rights became issues. The other story could be about how we worked toward stopping the rise of greenhouse gases and how governments and industry joined with people to create an economy based on a combination of fossil fuels and alternate energy and addressing food supply and manufacturing issues. Ken Smith, South Hazelton, B.C.

Workers praised When not frozen over, a small skiff was used to carry passengers. Often passengers used a combination of planks on scaffolding, ice, and the skiff. The operator set up and maintained this system, often during cold, dark and snowy conditions, and many can assure you, with howling

winds along the river. The skill and hard work of those people over the past hundred years deserve a mark of appreciation and recognition. Don Varner, Bill and Helene McRae, Terrace, B.C.

Environmental Assessment of the Proposed Brucejack Gold Mine Project

Open Houses and Invitation to Comment Pretium Resources Inc. (Proponent) is proposing to develop the Brucejack Gold Mine Project, approximately 65 km northnorthwest of Stewart, B.C (proposed Project). The proposed Project would be an underground gold and silver mine with a production capacity of 2,700 tonnes per day. The proposed Project is subject to review under British Columbia’s Environmental Assessment Act and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012. The Proponent must obtain an environmental assessment certificate before any development can be undertaken on the proposed Project. However, prior to submission of an application for a certificate by the Proponent, the Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) of British Columbia must first approve Application Information Requirements. The Application Information Requirements will specify the studies to be conducted and the detailed information to be provided by the Proponent in its application. EAO has now received draft Application Information Requirements from the Proponent and invites comments on this draft. In order to provide information about the Application Information Requirements, and to receive comments from the public, EAO invites the public to attend an Open House. There will be five Open Houses, to be held as follows: at:

Sexting investigation underway in Terrace By ANNA KILLEN and MARGARET SPEIRS


PARENTS SHOULD educate themselves on the different apps and sites their children are using, says Terrace RCMP Const. Angela Rabut. good idea if we put on a session in the evening so parents could come access,” she said, on last night’s session. Since the program's trainers were already going to be in town, and the district has become more aware of incidents taking place in Terrace, it made sense to hold an extra session for parents. “Since they're going to be in town, we're going to take advantage of it because we know

it's out there,” she said, speaking last week. “The anti-bullying and all of the stuff we're trying to do with kids is to just encourage them not to get into situations where they become vulnerable.” Parents need to be aware too, she said. “A lot of parents are extremely naive. They pay the bill and buy the phone and that's the end of it,” she said. “It's not really totally our role to manage how kids use

THE NASS Valley won't be getting its own liquor store anytime soon. The application from the New Aiyansh Gas Bar/Convenience Store for a Rural Agency Store (RAS), a smaller version of a liquor store that's part of an already established store, was turned down by the BC Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB) after the community consultation phase of the application process, said liquor distribution branch communications manager Vince Cournoyer. “The LDB does not publicly share the specifics of community consultations,” he said. “In general though, if there is significant concern raised in a community during the stakeholder consultation about the granting of a RAS appointment, the LDB does not proceed beyond that consultation.” He added that specifics are not given out because the community consultations are done to help the liquor board decide whether to allow local stores to sell alcohol on its behalf. “It is essential that we receive candid input and each response is considered within the context of all other responses,” said Cournoyer. “Keeping the process confidential is the best way to ensure participation and forthright responses in what are very small communities.” New Aiyansh Gas Bar/ Convenience Store interim manager George Adams said he received a letter from the liquor board that said there was too much opposition to the store selling liquor. Last Consumer year, a sign posted GF-AC Offeron#1the

government liquor store here in Terrace from the Liquor Distribution Branch of the provincial government asked for input from the community on the branch's request to “establish a rural agency store (RAS) at the New Aiyansh gas bar/ convenience store.” The RAS would sell liquor so people would have “better, more convenient access” to alcohol, the notice said. These types of stores are set up in rural communities that are too small to operate a government liquor store and where a suitable business, such as an “independently-owned full service general grocery store” is already located, the notice said. Only one of these stores is permitted in a community, it said. Written comments from the community were accepted until July 28, 2012. The process that the liquor branch goes through in deciding on whether to set up an RAS has three steps: an initial assessment that involves a site visit, a public consultation and finally an application, said the LDB. If the first two steps are successful, it generally takes approximately six to eight weeks to complete the final application process, said the LDB. The first assessment and site visit took place and the community consultation was expected to be finished by Aug. 9, 2012. If the store wants to reapply for the RAS, it can do so anytime, said Cournoyer. There’s no indication of when that might happen.

TERRACE RCMP are investigating alleged incidents involving multiple youth and sexting – sending photos of a sexual nature via electronic means. “There is an ongoing investigation into possession and distribution of child pornography in Terrace,” said Terrace RCMP community policing and media relations officer Const. Angela Rabut last week. “This is commonly referred to as sexting due to the ages of the youth involved.” Terrace RCMP are working “closely with our community partners as we continue with this investigation,” she said. That includes the Coast Mountains School District, which was made aware of the investigation by the RCMP, confirmed school superintendent Nancy Wells. “They've asked for our cooperation,” Wells said. “We're not involved in the matter in any way... that's totally an RCMP matter at this point.” An information session for parents and community members on bullying, cyberbullying and the use of social media was hosted by the district, along with the Ministry of Children and Family Development, Safer Schools Together, the Ministry of Education and the RCMP last night, Nov. 12, at the REM Lee Theatre. The evening information session was in addition to training already scheduled by the school district for its employees happening this week. That bullying prevention program is called ERASE and is put on by the education ministry. “[The program is] technically for school safety, but in order to make schools safe you work with everybody in the community,” Wells said. “The sessions during the day are for school people and community agencies so on this particular issue we decided it would be a

social media, however, we do feel a responsibility to keep kids safe.” Rabut agrees that parents need to be made aware of the realities of social media and cell phone use among youth. Parents need to talk with their children about staying safe and being responsible with electronic devices, she said. “Parents also need to be active and involved in their children's online activities by monitoring their child's use of electronic devices,” said Rabut. Topics parents should educate themselves on include cyberbullying and related behaviors; sites and apps students are using in today's digital world; impact of social media and the effect it has on youth; abbreviations and social media communication; tips for adults to support children who are being targeted; strategies to talk to your child about the importance of their digital footprint; child's usage, safety, and privacy while online, said Rabut. Parents can also check out, a site with information for teachers, parents and children around various issues such as sexting.

Short-term pool upgrades announced By JOSH MASSEY ALTHOUGH RECENTLY announced upgrades to the aquatic centre fall short of the more lavish plans that were considered in last year's review, the current upgrades are a stopgap measure until a totally new pool can be built or another upgrade gets tabled in the future. For now, the city has adopted what mayor Dave Pernarowski called a “fiscally responsible choice” in announcing $310,500 would be spent over five years beginning next year to improve safety, efficiency and accessibility. This will include rebuilding the west wall, painting the interior of the existing centre, as well as improvements to mechanical, heating, ventilation and power distribution. The new wall will be built using the same materials as the previous wall and will cost $150,000. The remaining money is broken down as follows: $35,000 for painting, $35,000 for power distribution, $20,500 for mechanical work, $50,000 for heating and ventilation and $20,000 for contingency. Council also plans to “look for grant funding opportunities to improve the accessibility of the facility as the next priority following the structural repairs.” Accessibility improvements being considered are ramp access into the pools and an accessible/

family change room,” reads the release. A review commissioned by the city from Bruce Carscadden Architects last year recommended a series of potential upgrades to the pool that the city took into consideration. “The interior of the building will be painted grey, accenting the wood beams. This is considered an update to the look of the interior of the building,” said director of leisure services Carmen Didier about one of the accepted recommendations from the review. While the review did suggest broader upgrades such as expanding the facility, adding a glass wall and water slide, council opted for the less costly option. “Council was trying to demonstrate fiscal responsibility,” said Bruce Bidgood afterwards. According to the councillor, the prudent choice was taken with a potential new pool facility on the horizon, especially if the economy continues to expand. “At a certain point, you have to stop putting money into the old Chevy and buy a new car,” said Bidgood. While focusing on efficiency, safety and accessibility in the short term, Bidgood said the long-term plan is to build an entirely new pool. He said that it cost Kitimat about $14 million for their new


WEST WALL of the city’s aquatic centre is scheduled to be replaced, one of a series of projects to be undertaken at the facility to make it safer, more efficient and more accessible. Work on various projects to happen over a five-year span is to start next year. Replacing the wall will take up just more than half of the projected $310,000 being set aside for all of the work. pool, however, so Terrace, with a much smaller industrial tax base, is currently a long way from that sort of investment. “Council reviewed the options regarding the Terrace Aquatic Cen-

tre very carefully,” said Pernarowski in the media release. “We brought our partners, the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine, into our discussion as well. A fiscally respon-

sible approach to rebuild the wall without a resulting tax increase will address the immediate needs of the community while staying within our financial means.”

Miners borrow to advance Kitsault mine THE COMPANY wanting to open a molybdenum mine at Kitsault on the north coast is borrowing $40 million to finance work leading up to the start of construction. Avanti will use some of the money to rebuild a bridge leading to Kitsault so that it can better handle the increased truck traffic resulting from construction traffic, says company president Mark Premo. And it will also provide BC Hydro with a financial surety so it can then re-energize a power line going into the location that will service the moly mine. Avanti is now working on obtaining construction and related permits following provincial environmental approval granted this spring. It also is anticipating federal approval by year’s end. The $40 million being borrowed is just over half of what the company has already spent in determining the operational and financial viability of its project and in steering it through


■■ Taking shape THE SCALE of the Kondolas Furniture building going up on Hwy16 near Tim Hortons is now more apparent now that the structural steel is in place. The structure, being built by Progressive Ventures, will replace the Kondolas store that’s on Lakelse Ave. and is one of the larger commercial ventures undertaken in the city in the past while.

various governmental economic and environmental assessments since it bought the property in 2008. The current bridge leading to Kitsault has Glulam stringers and a timber deck while the new one will have steel beam girders and a concrete deck. “The province is responsible for the replacement [and] Avanti is paying for the bridge replacement. However, the bridge will be the property of the province,� said Premo. Work on the BC Hydro line is needed to re-energize it to 138 kilovolts from its current 25 kilovolt capacity. Premo said that involves work at BC Hydro’s New Aiyansh substation at several places along the line leading from the substation to the Kitsault mine site. BC Hydro will do the work and the financial surety, a line of credit, is released as Avanti purchases power, Premo added.

ARTIST’S RENDERING of the front of the planned Skeena Brewery Company pub and eatery which would go on the corner of Emerson and Greig.

Tax incentive plans could advance pub THE COMPANY planning on building a brew pub and eatery on a portion of the former Terrace Co-op property wants to use a double-barreled tax incentive program. If successful, the Skeena Brewery Company would receive a five-year tax break from the city on the value of its project. And it could also receive an upfront dollar amount loan equivalent to the tax break from a northern economic development agency which it would use to help its immediate financing. In return, the company would then pay the city taxes on the full value of its development and the city would send that amount back to the Northern Development Initiative Trust which provided the money to the brewery in the first place. “We believe Skeena Brewery will be eligible for both of these programs,” says city finance official Ron Bowles. At the heart of the somewhat complicated exemption plan is an existing city bylaw aimed at encouraging developers to either build or renovate existing buildings in the downtown core. Although developers would receive a five-year tax break on the value of their improvements, the city’s tax revenues based on increased assessments would rise once that period ended. In the case of the Skeena Brewery Company, because it would be building on raw land, the taxation exemption would apply to its development cost which, it says, is in the range of $1.8 million. The Northern Development Initiative Trust calls its add-on an “aggressive” program focused on providing “an immediate financial incentive for

developers that is significantly more attractive than any revitalization tax exemption program currently available.” Trust official Joel McKay says it does not charge any interest on the amount it provides to a developer. “The trust relies on the natural inflation of annual property taxes to recover the amount of the lump sum payment,” he said. The prospect of the Skeena Brewery Company being able to use the city and Northern Development Initiative Trust incentives comes as it made official its purchase of a portion of the city-owned former Terrace Co-op property last week. The company paid $96,000 for the property located on the corner of Greig and Emerson, acting on an option it took out last year. “[Company] investors, encouraged by a generous provincial community diversification tax break, continue to make a tasteful difference in their community,” said company investor Dr. Greg Linton in a release last week. The purchase means the company can now proceed with licence applications, he added. “This is one more important step toward revitalizing a prime downtown property with a new and unique investment in our community,” said Terrace mayor David Pernarowski upon signing the sale agreement. A number of other downtown businesses, including Carters Jewellers, Horizon Dental, Fabricland, Casa Masala/Hothouse and Baker Extraordinaire have already taken advantage of the city’s tax exemption plan.

mine and plans on a combination of borrowing and selling equity to hit that target. In the meantime, the Nisga’a Lisims Government is suing the province, alleging it failed to properly assess the environmental impacts of the project on water quality, marine habitat and human health, as well as the social, economic and cultural effects on the Nisga’a citizens. Kitsault is not within Nisga’a treaty lands but is within Nisga’a traditional territory.

Social media reacts to removal of Kermode bear “It should be repainted, this time with a local First Nations design,” commented Shelby Raymond. “The bear is an icon of Terrace and should be restored,” commented Richard Kean. Some had theories of what happened to the bear. Johnboy Lyons commented, “Who ever painted under bridge did it he or she will paint a better bear, relax people.” Others think it is an act of environmental activism, with Darien Lechner commenting, “Good old environmental activism! Miss your painted bears? Well you're going to miss those real bears too when they're all drowning in oil.” Some were quick to blame the city, but for its part, the City of Terrace says it did not paint over the bear. “We didn't paint it over,” said City of Terrace corporate administrator Alisa Thompson, noting that the city doesn't have the resources for that type of job, nor would it be a priority.

From front


LOCAL ARTIST Sylvia Hart may have taken one of the last photos of the bear as it once was. “I took this picture just a few weeks ago and posted it on my fan page. Not long after someone mentioned it was gone. Sure enough I took the bridge the next day and it was gone,” she said. See more of Sylvia’s work at, on Facebook, or at Red Raven gallery.

There are only 20 cows in the area so that has a huge impact on the herd. And the six day open season on moose bulls that ended Oct. 26 was to give people “the opportunity to enjoy the privilege of hunting with each other,” he added. A road block program has seen “a reduction in the number of people not packing guns on their trips to Terrace,” said Scrivner. However, access to wilderness areas has increased because of newer roads constructed for industry, he said. And the large wolf population in the Rosswood area has had an impact, he added.

Nifty pocket rockets can spice up a ride









Kia’s small but hefty offering.


They might not compete for the top power specs, but can certainly get the party started...


Alexandra Straub

SKYACTIV engine with a 6-speed manual transmission or an available 6-speed automatic transmissionavailable on either the base GX or mid-grade GS models. It produces 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. Then there’s a 2.5L, 4-cylinder SKYACTIV engine for the GT trim, which only comes with a 6-speed automatic. It generates a healthy 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. Either is a treat to drive with excellent urban or extra urban characteristics. 2014 Fiat 500L- starts at $19,995 For Fiat fans, if the 500 was too small, here’s your answer: the 500L. The longer wheelbase cutie is more practical than the pint-sized version and has more room. And two more doors! Powering it is a 1.4L, 4-cylinder, MultiAir turbo engine that pumps out 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Since it’s a bigger car, it feels bigger to drive. But visibility isn’t compromised and there are a couple of

great gearboxes to choose from: a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed Euro Twin Clutch automatic transmission. Toyota Corolla- starts at $15,995 No, you’re not reading that wrong. I did include the 2014 Toyota Corolla on my list. Yes, it’s like automotive bread and butter; you always know you’re getting and it’s very predictable. But with a complete overhaul for 2014, you could say the Japanese manufacturer has added some jam on top to make it sweeter. New styling on the inside and out makes it more desirable to the eyes. It’s still not as exciting as most of its competitors but the 1.8L, 4-cyinder does a bang up job of delivering 132 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. The cabin is quiet and I’ll hand it Toyota for matching it with a CVT transmission that is just fabulous. Kia Soul- starts at $16,995 Kia’s box-mobile continues to deliver strong sales despite angularly-shaped vehicles becoming a trend of the past. Why? Because it has personality. Describing it in one word, I’d say it’s funky. And now, the all-new soul is built on a bigger platform, increasing legroom up front and in the rear. It’s also quieter on the road when revving its 1.6L, 4-cylinder engine. There’s also a 2.0L 4-cylinder available with 164 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque.

Drives-U-Crazy Intersection idiots A myth abounds among self-righteous, over-cautious drivers that only one leftturning car at a time is permitted to enter an intersection on a green light. Those who adhere to this unwritten ‘rule’ annoy those behind and hold up the flow

2014 Dodge Journey R/T AWD shown. Price: $32,290§.


A vehicle doesn’t have to be exorbitantly expensive, have mega horsepower or a fancy Italian badge on it to be fun to drive. In fact, a lot of people seem to agree with that statement too since there are a few pocket rockets available on the market that might not compete for the top power specs, but can certainly get the party started. Ford Fiesta ST- $24,499 If its exterior colour, say the one clad in Green Envy, doesn’t catch your eye, perhaps its exhaust note will. When you rev 1.6L, 4-cylinder, turbocharged, EcoBoost engine of the Fiesta ST, you’ll probably turn your head. Yes, it’s a subcompact but it doesn’t feel like it when you’re working through the gears of the 6-speed manual transmission. Ford’s newest mini powerhouse comes with a whopping 197 horsepower and 202 lb-ft of torque. It’s the same engine paired with the Focus ST, but in a smaller packaged. Its sport infused suspension, gearbox, phenomenal handling and host of creature comforts sound good to you, it’s even better to drive. You just might make your friends green with envy because you’re having so much fun behind the wheel. Mazda3 Sport- starts at $15,995 For the 2014 model year, Mazda completely overhauls their number-one selling sedan and hatchback: the 3. Expect more mature (but not dated) styling, a driver-focussed cabin and a host of technological gadgetry that makes staying “connected” behind the wheel more user friendly. Of course, without trying to take away focus from the act of driving. Among its tweaked features, you’ll find brand new interior and exterior styling along with the implementation of their high compression ratio engines, better known as SKYACTIV. Two engines and transmissions are offered. There’s the 2.0L, 4-cylinder A17

of traffic. It is especially annoying when so many larger BC centres have intersections large enough to accommodate two and often three vehicles. What drives-u-crazy.

The Canadian choice: compact cars and compact SUVs 2014 Toyota Corolla Continuing with the compact car theme, the Toyota Corolla is the third best selling car in Canada but Toyota believes this new model can take the overall sales crown away from the Honda Civic. This new 2014 model is made, and partly designed, right here in Canada with our needs in mind. The Corolla now has a longer wheelbase for amazing interior space, especially in the back seat.

So many cars to choose from, so few words available in this tight space! Yes, I know that’s the complaint of every writer but we truly do have a lot of choice today. And the quality of vehicles is so much higher than it ever was so there is much to celebrate. In the run-up to 2014, I will be testing a lot of what’s new and improved. Today, I’ll just offer you five models to consider adding to your shopping list.



2014 Corolla 225hp, in the Canadian Model, thanks to a new 2.0L turbo engine. The interior materials used inside are almost Audi quality. No price yet but building these new cars inside the NAFTA zone will save money and that will be reflected in the price. 2014 Jeep Cherokee The Cherokee is back and it looks nothing like the boxy truck of old. In fact, this new, small SUV is based on the same Alfa Romeo platform used in the Dodge Dart. It is smooth and quiet and a pleasure to drive. The Cherokee is also the first vehicle in the world to be equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission. The base engine is a 2.4L 4-cylinder with 184hp or the optional 3.2L V6 with 271hp, for just $1,300 more, offering good value. Not to worry Jeep fans, this new Cherokee is available with three AWD systems.


2014 Nissan Rogue You might notice a trend with my 2014 model choices are all compact cars or compact SUVs. This is the direction Canadians are heading when it comes to buying a new vehicle. With this in mind Nissan has an all-new Rogue compact SUV with enough room inside for three rows of seats and room for 7-passengers. This is practical for people who require extra capacity but don’t want to buy a bigger or more expensive mid-sized or larger SUV. Under the hood is a 2.5L 4-cylinder used in other Nissan products and is matched to a new continually variable transmission featuring more available ratios and reduced friction. The interior is very well executed, with a dash that looks similar to the bigger Pathfinder. Goes on sale just before Christmas.

■ Peace CENTENNIAL CHRISTIAN Grade 4/5 students rehearse their dance for Remembrance Day Nov. 7.

Local artist wins award A LOCAL artist will be honoured with an award for his artwork. Ken McNeil will receive a 2013 BC Creative Achievement Awards for First Nations’ Art that celebrates artistic excellence in traditional, contemporary or media art. “Over the past 30 years, carving in his Tahltan-Tlingit tradition, Ken has produced an impressive body of work that has been exhibited across Canada, in the U.S. and internationally. A master carv-

er, Ken creates works from miniature to large-scale, from small sculptures to totem poles. “He is a founding instructor of the Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art at Northwest Community College in Terrace,” said the government release about McNeil’s accomplishments that led to this award. McNeil and the other four artists named join 37 First Nations artists who have been recognized with the award in

the past seven years. The other 2013 recipients chosen by the jury are Dale Campbell, Prince Rupert; Marlene Liddle, Old Masset Village; Joe Martin, Tofino; and Sammy Robinson, Kitamaat Village. Local carver Dempsey Bob was on the jury who chose this year’s award winners and he received a 2004 BC Lifetime Creative Achievement Award for First Nations’ Art. The awards will be presented at a ceremony in Vancouver later this month.

Students show positive side

SKEENA MIDDLE School students are doing random acts of kindness to help their part of the community and themselves. In about mid-October, shop teacher Matt Sydor introduced the project to his advisory class, which is like homeroom and meets once

a day, and came up with the idea for the Grade 9s to take a leadership role to emphasize the success and positivity at the school that often isn’t seen or heard about outside school. Students are asked to do the random acts as they arise or scheduled ones at school

and outside school and share what they did, said Sydor. They get a piece of paper to write down their random act and their name or initials, which is then posted on a display at the front of the school. Examples of their random acts include tidying classrooms, being an audience for

an activity or other ideas that they can do at school during their advisory time. Outside of school those acts could be holding the door for people, buying someone’s coffee or treat at a store. Random Acts of Kindness will continue throughout November.

Fundraiser stars former resident A FORMER resident who’s now a wellknown comedian is looking for a sellout at his upcoming fundraiser show for a friend with cancer. Ian Bagg graduated with Kim Kaye and heard on facebook about her friends raising money to help her with her cancer treatment and care and he offered to help. He will squeeze Terrace in when he performs in Vancouver and his performance is not all there will be. Bagg has friends who work for several NHL teams and he will have signed

hockey jerseys to raffle off for the fundraiser as well, he said. They will include LA Kings jerseys and St. Louis and maybe Miami and Tampa ones too, he said. Bagg grew up here before moving to Vancouver where he went to school and worked as a comedian. He lived in New York six years and has now been in Los Angeles now for six years. His parents still live here and he hears from them about what’s going on here.

Bagg helped raise money for the new sheet of ice and for the music foundation. Bagg had his own talk show special on Comedy Central and has been on several late night shows, including Conan O’Brien and Craig Ferguson. A pilot for an A&E show called Ian Bagg Gets a Job is set to premiere in the future. He’s seen fundraisers and other shows sell out here and said he will be disappointed if his fundraiser for Kaye doesn’t sell out too. For details on Bagg’s show, see Fundraiser under City Scene on page 21.

Rotary auction sets record

TERRACE ROTARY Club set another record on its earnings in its 53rd rotary auction. “We had all together about $46,000 in revenue,” said rotary auction chair Brian Downie. That included 427 auctioned items with a gross value of about $61,000, for a return of about 72.8 per cent, he added. And that’s fewer items than last year, but they were of more value, he said. Most of the bids that came in were on the internet, 3,400, same as last year. “We had a good time,” said Downie. “We had fun auctioning off a cast iron bathtub and we had lots of bids on the Hawkair return trips to Vancouver and also Elan Travel put in anywhere Westjet flies and those were well received.” The auction is the club’s biggest fundraiser of the year, enabling it to do projects in the community and internationally, said Downie. For example, the start of the new bus shelter by the Park Avenue medical building received a fair bit of money from the club and it also gave quite a bit to the Dr. REM Lee Foundation for its ultrasound, he said. The club takes requests for project financing and has a form for those people to fill out, then they come to a rotary meeting and outline their project to the club, he added. “The auction wouldn’t work without businesses and non-profits donating to the auction, giving us the products that we can sell,” said Downie. The auction moved to the sportsplex due to the construction at the Inn of the West, and Downie gave kudos to the city and arena staff for everything working well. Next year’s auction may be in the sportsplex again, he said.

Terrace Standard  Wednesday, November 13, 2013


hen I was young; I’d listen to the radio; Waitin’ for my favourite songs; When they played I’d sing along…. Late at night, when I was a teen, I could get the most amazing US-based AM stations on my transistor radio. The fact that this happened in southern Manitoba (close to the States), late at night (when their licences allowed them to super-amplify their broadcasts) and mostly in winter is all sciencey, but has to do with radio waves bouncing off the atmosphere, diffraction, and the earth’s curvature, or “skip.” So cool! New music, not yet available locally as LPs or 45s, beamed directly and discreetly into my left ear in Steinbach via the ear-phone jack that came, at no extra charge, with these transistors. For the youngsters, I will explain that these were small, inexpensive, shock-resistant radios (you could drop them on the sidewalk, no problem) that made use of the most modern circuitry. Following their development in 1954 they became “the most popular electronic communication device in history, with billions manufactured during the 1960s and 1970s.” Their pocket size sparked a change in popular music listening habits, allowing people to listen to the radio anywhere they went. I had one. Oh, yeah. Then, in my 20s, I worked in Winnipeg A21

noon, when the sun was shining brightly and Sunday lunch barely finished, we were confused and wondered what to do. When heard that opening – “da da da, da da da, dah-dah-dah-dah, dah-dahdah-dah!” – our mouths would start watering. We would look at each other and talk about supper. “Shouldn’t we start…?” “Would you like to have…?” Laundry only half-done, or dishes still being washed, grass longing to be cut, or leaves calling us to be raked, the day not yet ready to be abandoned for evening. We had a lot of early Sunday suppers after that last move, and it is totally Rex Murphy’s fault. Snow not shoveled. Twenty years on, we are now accustomed to CCC at mid-day, and go about our business as responsible British Columbians. These days, we have a radio in every room in the house, battery-operatedfor camping, and we listen to the CBC on the laptop when needed. Is our transistor-toting youth to blame? Ah, memories. Who can ever forget Mott the Hoople?

Shogun stars shine IT’S BEEN a fall full of changes for the Shogun Dojo in Terrace – with a new location, new competitions, and new fighters on the mat. And the team is proving that change is a good thing – seeing success at their most recent tournament in Burnaby and planning to hit more smaller competitions before nationals in June. Six athletes, including coaches Amber Pipe and Rajan Sangha, headed to Burnaby last month for the Western Canadian Martial Arts Championship – and it being their first time at the competition, and a different style than they are used to, they had no idea what to expect. “Usually we know who we are fighting against, so we train to fight against them, whereas this tournament we didn’t know who we were going to fight or what they were like, so it was a little different,” said Sangha. “We spar more aggressive than they wanted us to fight down there... They were kind of looking at us when we were coming in there like, who are these guys?” said Robbie Clein-Matheis, who had a wild ride at his first ever competition – winning gold in his division and going on to win Grand National Champion. Even more impressive as he’d only been training for three months and was a white belt fighting brown belts. “It was the coolest feeling,” he said, adding he battled hard with his nerves throughout the tournament.

Desjardins shoots sharp in Prince George IT DIDN’T take long for centre Sage Desjardins, born and raised in Terrace, to settle in with her new team, the Northern Cougars Female Major Midget Team based in Prince George. Leading her team in scoring, and ranked 10th in league scoring, she’s been nominated by BC Hockey for player of the month for October, and in the nine games last month contributed six points, 12 penalty minutes, and is +4 on goals for or against. After a banner season with the Terrace Bantam Female Reps last year – a year that saw the team win AA bantam provincials – Desjardins, who’d played in Terrace Minor Hockey since she was six years old, moved to Prince George with some of her teammates to be on the Northern Cougars.

Wraight, in front, at the Shogun Dojo Nov. 6. “It was definitely something else.” He wasn’t the only one who performed well. Sangha took bronze in his category, and Pipe won gold – fighting despite a lingering knee injury. Nathaniel Alexee, who has been training for six months, won a silver medal in point fighting. He said it took him

a bit to get used to the lighter style of fighting at the competition. “I didn’t really know what to expect,” he said. Nikolas Yasinchuk, who has been to a few competitions before, won bronze in continuous. “Nerves weren’t really affecting me,” he said. “I was just there to fight.” And the dojo is settling into its new location – in the

same neighbourhood as the old location, but a few floors up and with added perks, including a kitchen, a weight room and separated change areas. “It’s smaller but we like it better,” said Sangha. “It’s more homey... There’s windows and it’s a lot brighter, the energy seems to be a little more positive.”


SAGE DESJARDINS now plays for the Northern Cougars in Prince George.

Terrace Midget Reps win gold in Quesnel IN A thrilling overtime win over Prince George’s Tier 2 team, Terrace’s Midget Reps took gold in Quesnel two weekends ago. Teams from across the northwest attended the tournament, held on the Nov. 2 weekend. Terrace went undefeated in the tournament, largely outscoring their competition, with an overall margin of 20 – 6 goals for. In the team’s first game against Prince George Tier 3, Terrace took the game 5 – 1. They then beat Williams Lake 7 – 1. And followed that game with a 5 – 2 win against Dawson Creek. That set them up for the final against Prince George Pier 2, tied 2 – 2 at the end of the third, the game was close. But Terrace ultimately prevailed in overtime, winning 3 – 2.

Terrace teams go head to head at hometown tourney EIGHT NORTHWEST Sr. Boys volleyball teams were in Terrace two weekends ago for a play day hosted by Centennial Christian School and Caledonia Secondary School at the Caledonia gym. Caledonia went undefeated at the Nov. 2 tournament, winning all four of their matches. But the final was a back and forth between the other Terrace team, Centennial, with Cal winning the first set, Centennial winning the second set, and Cal pulling away to win the final set and the play day. Houston Christian and Bulkley Valley Christian were also in the top four, with Houston going 3 – 1 and Bulkley Valley going 1 – 3. Smithers secondary, Charles Hays, and Ebenezer Christian all went 1 – 2 at the tournament, with Hazelton Secondary going 0 – 3. The Caledonia boys are now done their zone play and are preparing for the provincial championships in Kelowna from November 26 - 30. They are the only AAA school in the zone so they get an automatic berth at the provincials. Centennial hosted zones here last weekend, with results not yet available at that time.

he summer steelhead of the Thompson River are world renowned. Given this global esteem, you’d think that some extraordinary measures might have been taken to protect them, but no. Important spawning tributaries like Spius and Deadman Creeks and Nicola River, have been compromised due to over grazing and water extraction. For years Thompson River steelhead were killed in a welfare salmon fishery off the coast of Vancouver Island. Gill nets should be an historical artifact by now, but, sadly, they are not. A gill net fleet fishing for roe to be exported to Japan still fishes the Fraser near Port Mann where it intercepts endangered Cultus Lake Sockeye salmon as well as summer run steelhead bound for the Thompson River. The fact that this travesty exists is a monument to the ineptitude of the managers at Fed Fish who put the needs of industry above those of fish. A number of First Nations exercise their aboriginal right to fish the Fraser. They too take a toll on the up river steelhead bound for the Chilcotin, Stein, and the Thompson. And, there are the Thompson River sport fishermen who for year after year killed far too many fish, most of them baiting their prey. With the Thompson run down to less than a thousand fish, the regional fisheries staff of FLNRO charged with their protection has been using some strange science to justify giving sports fishers a chance at

Desjardins shoots sharp

This is the first step in her ultimate goal to play in the Olympics – and also have the opportunity to get a scholarship and play the game she lives for. The Cougars are currently sitting in third place. The team’s the youngest team in the league – the highest Midget level in B.C. with six teams – Kelowna, Kootenay, Fraser Valley, North Shore, and Victoria – and their future looks bright. They just finished a home stint against the defending champs, Fraser Valley Phantoms, finishing the weekend with one loss and two ties – breaking the Phantoms’ win streak. Desjardins’ father, Mario, a longtime supporter and face in Terrace Minor Hockey, is coaching the Cougars alongside Stu Malgunas.

should open at all but there is no informed opinion that the perfect storm about to unfold on those fish again this year is defensible. Conservation was once defined as wise use. The current regime in your regional office in Kamloops needs a major refresher on what that is in the world of the present. I can assure you it isn’t a concept based on the output of a computer model developed for some Alaska sockeye stock and adapted by people who, if they ever did spend any time on the Thompson River during steelhead season, must have been willfully blind. For many years the anadromous fisheries specialists in your own Ministry, exclusive of Kamloops, have been openly critical of the “management” approach on the Thompson. It is high time the isolationists are brought into line. At the very least you need to abandon the opening day syndrome and the use of bait. The smarter approach is to begin the season with the fishery open, not closed. Monitor the activity through a properly designed creel survey until it becomes clear whether or not there are sufficient fish present to maintain fishing opportunity. If there aren’t, no one will object to closing the fishery. Everyone except a handful of numbers focused bait slingers gets something out of that – the business community far more certainty, the anglers more opportunity, the fish more protection and, not the least, the Ministry a touch of much needed credibility and respect.

Smelter scrubbers needed, say health officials THE NORTHERN Health Authority recommended the installation of scrubbers to minimize the emission of sulphur dioxide into the air as part of Rio Tinto Alcan's Kitimat smelter modernization project now underway. The recommendation, contained in a review by the authority of Rio Tinto's plans and sent to the company and to the environment ministry, is consistent with its approach to public health, says Dr. David Bowering, the authority's senior health officer in the region. “We want people to minimize the risk to air quality and to the air shed as much as they can,” he said last week. “And that would be to use the best possible technology and that would be scrubbers.” Scrubbing, or flue gas desulphurization, refers to procedures that remove sulphur dioxide from gas using chemical and mechanical processes, usually transferring it to water or solid waste. Sulphur dioxide is a by-product of aluminum smelting and because the new smelter

will produce more aluminum than the current one, the amount of sulphur dioxide produced will increase. The environment ministry has issued a permit allowing Rio

Tinto to emit more sulphur dioxide into the air than is now the case. The health authority review also recommended the permit contain a “trigger” to cut emissions through a

reduction in production or by other measures should the technical assessment of the emissions plan be found to have underestimated the risk to the population. Bowering noted that

the health authority's review and recommendations were submissions made to the company and to the environment ministry and were not necessarily incorporated into the permit is-

sued to the company. He also said it was important to place the increased sulphur dioxide emissions within the context of other potential industrial development in the region.

“You just can't look at this in isolation,” said Bowering of the cumulative impact to the air shed of Rio Tinto Alcan's new smelter and of planned liquefied natural gas plants to be based in Kitimat.
