RCMP dispatch cop from city By MARGARET SPEIRS

JOSH MASSEY PHOTO

■■ Enbridge protested SHELBY RAYMOND, left, and Sheree Ronaasen, right, at a rally held the afternoon of Saturday, Nov.16. It was part of a national campaign called “Defend our Climate, Defend our Communities”. The demonstration was held at Brolly Square on the corner of Lakelse Ave. and Emerson St.

AN RCMP officer who awaits two internal police hearings for excessive use of force involving two men in two separate incidents in the spring of 2012 has been disciplined on another matter and transferred. Const. Brian Heideman was suspended for a separate and so far undisclosed matter in which he breached the RCMP code of conduct. Heideman faced a formal disciplinary hearing this past summer on the matter and the hearing board found he did conduct himself in a disgraceful manner, says Terrace RCMP Inspector Dana Hart. He was given a reprimand and had to forfeit eight days of pay, said Hart. “I can further say, as the matter for which he was suspended with pay for was resolved through the adjudication board, his transfer was approved to Vernon,” said Hart. “His duty assessment is continuously reviewed and he is currently working on [paid] administrative leave.” “It was a lateral [transfer], same level, and it was ordered by the commanding

officer, separate from the discipline,” Hart added. Hart said he had expected Heideman to be transferred and filled his spot earlier this year. “As far as the position in Terrace, in anticipation I had the position filled earlier this year by a new member from [the RCMP training] depot,” said Hart. It’s not known when the details of Heideman’s suspension will be released. While the discipline board’s final decision is told to the officer at the hearing and a written decision, which contains greater detail, such as statement of findings, reasons for the decision and a statement of the sanction imposed, is prepared, it involves an elaborate process. The written decision is first served to the office who then has 30 days to appeal, said RCMP adjudications registrar Carole SmithDoiron. Heideman’s written decision from the hearing which was held this past summer is currently being edited, before being served to him, said Smith-Doiron. “We cannot provide an

estimate for how long it will take to edit a written decision,” she said. “There is no time limit, however, every effort is made to finalize the written decision and serve it to the member in a timely manner.” The undisclosed matter resulting in Heideman’s suspension arose around the same time as the incidents involving the two men in April and May 2012, said Hart. Separate from his suspension and pay docking, Heideman was suspended with pay in July 2012 until late June 2013 in what Hart described as administrative paid leave prior to his transfer to Vernon. “Leave means not working,” said Hart. He said the matter was the most complicated disciplinary case he’s dealt with. No dates have been set for Heideman to face formal code of conduct hearings regarding the two incidents involving the two men. In neither case were criminal charges approved against Heideman. The two men won’t face criminal charges either.

Boating tragedy claims three local lives By MARGARET SPEIRS THE SEARCH for three Thornhill residents who were reported overdue from a boating trip on the Skeena River Nov. 11 ended when one was found deceased Nov. 12 and the other two were found deceased Nov. 13. Lyle Ray Lukat, 24, Patrick John Hawkshaw, 40 and Nicole Lucy McKay, 23, left in a 12-foot aluminum boat from a location on the Hwy 16 side of the Skeena Riv-

er at Tyee Nov. 10 for an overnight trip to the Frizzell Hotsprings on the other side of the Skeena River approximately 33 kilometres east of Prince Rupert. A search involving members of Terrace Search and Rescue, Prince Rupert RCMP and the coast guard began after the trio did not return Nov. 11 and their vehicles were found at their last known location. Lukat was found in the water Nov. 12 after which search efforts were suspended because of

extreme weather. Hawkshaw and McKay were found the next day. The Frizzell Hotsprings is one of several unattended hotsprings in the area and a popular spot for people with boats. “With sorrow we acknowledge that they’ve been found and that’s ultimately the goal for the family,” said Dave Jephson from Terrace Search and Rescue. “The family has closure and unfortunately not the ending anybody wanted but it’s closure.”

The search involved a helicopter and a fixed wing aircraft in addition to personnel in boats. Five Terrace Search and Rescue members were in two boats assisting a RCMP marine unit and the aircraft, said Jephson. The fixed wing aircraft spotted Lukat about 4 or 5 kilometres above the hotsprings because of currents on Nov. 12. Crews went back out on the water at 6:30 a.m. Nov. 13, and three more people with a river rescue

boat checked at Ecstall to rule out that area, said Jephson. The coast guard out of Prince Rupert found Hawkshaw about 14 kilometres west of the hot springs and the police marine unit found McKay in channel west about 18 or 20 kilometres away from the hot springs, he said. “I believe all the area down there is susceptible to tidal and at some point the tide did move the individuals around,” said Jephson.

Chinese state hosting city, Kitselas delegates A DELEGATION of Terrace and Kitselas First Nations officials is wooing investors in China this week on a trip partially financed by the Chinese government and several state-controlled companies. The goal is to sell portions of the 2,400-acre Skeena Industrial Development Park located just south of the Northwest Regional Airport, Terrace mayor Dave Pernarowski said at a city council meeting Nov. 12. There are “a number of opportunities including forestry, agriculture or power generation,” said Pernarowski, who is on the trip with councillors Lynne Christiansen, James Cordeiro and city corporate lands manager Herb Dusdal. Kitselas chief councillor Joe Bevan, councillors Wilfred Bennett and Judy Gerow and Kitselas chief executive officer Therese Hagen make up the Kitselas portion of the delegation. The industrial park is located on Kitselas traditional territory and the Kitselas and the city have a joint agreement in which profits from land sales will be shared once expenses have been covered. Pernarowski said the trip will include visits to manufacturing sites operated by companies who could invest in the Terrace lands to develop their operations. The trip is to a port city called Qinhuangdao on the north coast of China. “China is probably the best market that we’ve got to invest in right now and I think one of the things I’ve learned going to China is they love to do business face to face,” said Pernarowski, who has made several business trips to China already for his job as an official with Kitsault Energy formed to promote the former mining town on BC’s north coast as an LNG hub. “The city is well aware that Terrace is very well-

positioned for investment in the industrial park because of our proximity to Asian-Pacific markets,” Pernarowski added. The mayor did not disclose last week what business groups the delegation is meeting with, saying they would not do so until a deal is worked out. He said that upon its return, the delegation will report to council on whether or not it was successful in negotiating the purchase or lease of the city lands, at which point the names of the parties involved will be revealed. The trip, which was planned back in September, was not announced until Nov. 12. Costs per Terrace delegate of mostly airfare are estimated at $1,800 with accommodation and other arrangements covered by the delegation’s hosts. The money is coming from revenues already realized through the sale of portions of the industrial park. “The [Chinese] government sets up organizations or entities ... so certainly the state is involved in hosting,” said Pernarowksi, about the cost being partly financed on the Chinese side, including hiring an interpreter. Terrace councillors decided among themselves as to who would make the trip, said city chief administrative officer Heather Avison. The delegation left Nov. 16 and returns this Saturday. Earlier this year the city sold a small portion of the industrial park to Global Dewatering, a company who will use it mostly for storage of industrial equipment. And Calgary-based Veresen, an energy company, has signed a memorandum of understanding with the city which could lead to the purchase of land on which to build a natural-gas fired power generating plant.

Pipeline corridor proposed for BC SKEENA NDP MLA Robin Austin backs the idea of a common energy corridor for natural gas pipelines but thinks advancing the idea might be a bit early because no liquefied natural gas projects in the region have actually gotten off of the ground. “I think it makes sense for energy companies as they develop their route plans to think about ways they can work together so as not to rip up more of northern B.C. than necessary,” he said. Austin's comment follows the release today of a provincial legislative committee report which recommends the government consider a common energy corridor. That consider-

ation would be included in a cumulative environmental assessment of all LNG projects, said the committee. The prospect of five or more pipelines carrying natural gas to LNG plants in Kitimat and in Prince Rupert has sparked discussion about their combined environmental and other impacts. But Austin acknowledged that the competitive nature of the LNG business would make an energy corridor difficult to organize. Still, he said companies should realize they'd save enormous amounts of money by cooperating where possible on pipeline routes. “In Australia they've just finished four sepa-

rate pipeline routes to projects adjacent to each other,” said Austin. “That's jacked up the costs tremendously and I think now those companies realize it makes no sense. And some of those companies are the same as those with projects here,” he said referring to Chevron's Kitimat LNG project and Shell Canada's LNG project, also at Kitimat. While Austin favoured the idea of companies cooperating on routes, he drew the line on having the province develop its own corridor and then making it available to energy companies. “I don't want to see any energy corridor that would then allow Enbridge to run a pipeline

down it,” said Austin of the controversial Northern Gateway pipeline which would transport Alberta crude to a marine export terminal at Kitimat. The finance committee also recommended the province continue to explore revenue sharing with northern governments and that First Nations be included. “That really goes without saying. It's a given. I think in this day and age there is no way First Nations can't be involved,” said Austin. And he backs another finance committee recommendation to spend money now on northwestern infrastructure to ensure communities are ready for the impact of large-scale

LNG forum draws crowd By ANNA KILLEN THE IDEA of a common energy corridor for potential pipeline routes in the area came up here at Nov. 13 forum on LNG (liquefied natural gas). Kitselas First Nation councillor Judy Gerow, who was a member of the forum's panel, said in response to audience comments that she had discussed the idea with industry. “We did ask the question about sharing pipelines and they said it wasn't possible,” Ge-

row said at the forum hosted by Skeena NDP MP Nathan Cullen. The forum is one of several being hosted by Cullen across the riding featuring industry and energy stakeholders, environmental groups, and business representatives discussing LNG developments in the area. It was held one day before the provincial legislature’s finance committee said the provincial Liberal government should consider a common pipeline corridor.

Gerow’s comment prompted Cullen to ask industry representatives why one route isn’t being proposed. “The challenges that any one entity would have – whether that be federal or provincial government or any one of us (industry),” answered Shell/Canada LNG, which is proposing an export terminal at Kitimat, representa-

tive Suzanne Pierce, “is we would be picking winners and losers ... If you put one pipeline corridor anywhere there, somebody is going to be farther away and somebody's going to have to pay the difference.” Nearly 200 people attended the forum, held at the REM Lee Theatre.

SNOW REMOVAL NO PARKING ON STREETS

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. Any vehicle that impedes snow removal and / or road maintenance work on any snow removal route may be towed. Plowing in residential areas can occur at any time of the day or night. Snow clearing operations in the downtown area are typically carried out between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. In addition, it is illegal for anyone to place ice or snow from any private property, parking lot or entrance way, on to City right-of-way as it impedes traffic, creates drainage problems, buries fire hydrants, and interferes with routine snow plowing. Under this bylaw, you may be fined for doing so. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Training tactics

Terrace Standard  Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Student trades training continues to grow. In the Coast Mountains School District it’s looking for a more permanent home – and at Veritas Catholic School, it’s pulled up in the parking lot. By JOSH MASSEY WITH MAJOR industrial projects literally “coming down the pipe” in the northwest, local schools have started to adapt their curriculi to prep kids for potential trades careers. Trades careers requiring applied skills training that reward with high wages and plentiful opportunity appear to be on the horizon as B.C.’s north revs up to supply natural resources to expanding Asian markets. And when it comes to skilled labour jobs, getting some certification early will help kids in future training or to even land jobs after high school, according to Veritas Catholic School part-time applied skills teacher Allan McIntyre. McIntyre, who specializes in workplace safety, said there is the opportunity to give students basic certifications such as WHMIS early on. “You can’t step into a work site without these certifications,” he said of various first aid and workplace hazard training programs. McIntyre teaches out of a trailer to Veritas Grade 7’s, Grade 8’s, (this will include Grade 9’s starting next year when the school welcomes its inaugural Grade 9 cohort), instructing pupils in woodworking and other applied skills. He purchased the trailer in Washington and renovated it with the support of Veritas school. McIntyre likes to give kids the chance to see if they have a natural inclination towards or aptitude for the trades. He gives his courses from 1

ALLAN MCINTYRE and his afternoon group of Grade 7s outside the training trailer at Veritas private school. p.m. to 3 p.m. every Thursday. He said early workshop classes like his will help students decide if they want to pursue more applied skills in high school. The safety and skills he teaches at Veritas integrate well with Caledonia Secondary School’s ACE-IT

program which does trades training in partnership with the Northwest Community College. McIntyre said he likes the idea of a northwest regional trades centre potentially at Thornhill Jr. Secondary School (see article below) and he envisions shuttling Grade

9 students to courses there by bus from Veritas. When asked if they would consider a career in the trades, about half the Grade 7’s raised a hand. Principal of the school Dave Crawley said that the training trailer courses are part of the wider

program of hands-on skills including foods, sewing and drama in which the students spend a total of 20 hours each. In the future it will include picture framing, knot tying, firstaid courses, and basic automotive maintenance classes.

Thornhill Jr. could become trades centre By ANNA KILLEN COAST MOUNTAINS School District (CMSD) wants to see if turning Thornhill Jr. Secondary school into a northwest trades training centre for students is a viable idea – but it needs to find money to complete that study first. “We have the idea that we want to develop a regional trades and employment school for kids that are going towards graduation so they can get prepared for work,” school board chair Art Erasmus said late last month. “But before we can actually do that, we need to do a feasibility study to figure out exactly what kind of program we would have, who we would recruit to it, where it would be housed, what we would need for equipment, etc. “And for that, we need a bunch

of money,” he said. Thornhill Jr. Secondary is at the top of the list of potential locations for this centre, should the study deem it feasible, Erasmus said. “We have Thornhill Jr. Secondary school that is empty and closed,” he said. “But if you're teaching anything about trades in a building you'd have some equipment in there to build things.” That's where continuing its partnership with the college could come in. The CMSD and Northwest Community College already combine resources to offer various trades training programs for high school students. One, the Intro to Trades program offered to Grade 10 students, has students spending a semester at the college alternating between time in its shop and time

in the classroom. If a high school trades training centre were to become a reality, it's likely the college would continue to play a role. Determining the specifics of this role would be part of the feasibility study. Other preliminary ideas include space for students to complete certificate courses to help them find employment – certificates to operate equipment and to handle hazardous materials, as well as drivers’s licences “Those would more likely fit into a classroom setting than a shop setting,” Erasmus said. Erasmus says district officials have been on a “full court press” courting government and industry. “We're hoping to get that money over time from any of three provincial government ministries (the ministry of jobs, tourism and

skills training; ministry of education; ministry of advanced education), and hopefully with some contributions from some industry, because they are the ones who are going to be the beneficiaries as well as the students that are going to go to that school,” he said. But while the idea of a regional trades training centre has been warmly received by various government officials, there has been no promise of government money for the study. “The government has so far said, we like your idea, we know this would help kids to get kids where they need to go, but we don't have any money,” Erasmus said. An education ministry official confirmed that it’s aware of the idea and said the ministry encourages school’s to develop partnerships with local post-secondary

institutions and industry. “These opportunities go hand in hand, it’s not just the ministry of education and the school district,” said the staffer. “There has to be industry involvement as well as involvement from post-secondary institutions.” The government also suggests the district include its request in this year’s annual capital plan request. A similar trades and technology centre is set to open in Kamloops, following provincial money for the project announced in December of last year. As for money from industry, that could be coming once a policy is established. “Every so often we get approached from some of the industries that are working in our area that want to leave a legacy. We're going to talk to them about that,” said Erasmus.

EDITORIAL

Liquor sales IT’S ironic that at the same time the provincial government has been scouting for ways to increase the sale of alcohol – perhaps the selling of craft beers and wines at farmers markets or even moving liquor stories inside of grocery stores, etc. – it has turned down an application by the New Aiyansh convenience store in the Nass Valley to open what’s called a rural agency store, a mini form of a provincial liquor store. The irony is that while the provincial government will be more than happy to tell us why it should increase the sale of alcohol elsewhere, it won’t say why it won’t permit the sale of alcohol at all in the Nass. It did solicit opinions from people in the Nass as part of its evaluation of the New Aiyansh store’s proposal but says releasing those opinions is too sensitive for small communities. And the store itself did receive a letter from the province saying there was too much opposition to the idea. It’s not as if there isn’t access to alcohol already in the Nass. By many accounts, a thriving bootlegging industry exists, one fed by purchases made at liquor stores elsewhere. If the province doesn’t want to be viewed as moving legal liquor closer to those who sell it onward illegally, then it should say so. It could spark a wider discussion about the use and abuse of alcohol in the first place. For now, however, there’s a distinct whiff of paternalism in all this. It brings to mind that old saying: Do as I say but don’t do as I do. ESTABLISHED APRIL 27, 1988

S

o far cosmetic companies selling teeth whiteners have failed to recognize a burgeoning customer base for a new product – lip zippers for exasperated kinfolk. Upholsterers and seamstresses purchase zipper in 50 yard rolls. Johnson and Johnson or some other medical supplier could invent a line of soft flexible zipper designed specifically to safely seal lips against uncontrollable outbursts and unappreciated opinions. Recently a 70-year-old mother of four grown and married children confessed to me , “I’ve worn out several zippers keeping my mouth shut.” Think of all the parents, grandparents, even Conservative caucus MPs who grind their teeth when they’d really like to spout off their true feelings. Bet dentists are busy crowning teeth that have been worn down in the middle of sleepless nights as insomniacs relive the day’s events and silently rehearse what they wish they were at liberty to express. Justin Bieber’s grandparents could be prime customers for lip zippers purchased

CLAUDETTE SANDECKI by the yard. I’ve read that his grandparents are dismayed at their grandson’s shenanigans: charging giddy girls $320 each to have their photo taken with him then not even saying “hello” or sign an autograph. And what did Grandma and Grandpa think when they saw a news photograph of Justin sneaking away from a bordello hidden by a sheet? Did Grandma peer closer and murmur, “Is that a 300 thread count Martha Stewart sheet?” More recently, Bieber was charged with vandalism after he was caught spray painting graffiti on a wall in Bogota, Colum-

bia. The Bieber photo that irritates me as a Canadian is of the 19-year-old accepting the Diamond Jubilee medal from Prime Minister Harper. Bieber has on a baseball cap turned backwards, a white tee shirt , and black and white striped bib overalls dragging from one suspender with the crotch hanging down between his knees. Bib overalls hitched up by one suspender suited L’il Abner’s sartorial unsophistication. Bieber’s attempt to look “cool” in thrift store threads only flaunts his disrespect for the prime minister, Canadians, the Queen’s medal and his doting grandparents. If I were the Biebs’ grannie I’d be nigh exploding to tell him, “Put your shirt on unless you’re a spokesperson for No-No. And cover your tattoos. Far from making you look tough they draw attention to how little time you spend lifting anything weightier than a mic.” Bieber isn’t the only Justin whose relatives may want to order a roll of oral zipper.

I didn’t vote for her and I doubt I’d vote for Trudeau. Women are perfectly capable of duking it out with men in the political arena, though their approach may be more ladylike. Flora McDonald is an example of steel cloaked in genteel manners. Trudeau’s poster posed the question, “What is your favourite virtue?” He could have narrowed his meaning. Was he seeking praise for himself? Or hoping ladies’ replies would define what he must aim to be to win their votes. To round out the current list of spoiled notables, there’s Miley Cyrus sticking her tongue out a mile, twerking other performers like a black bear itching its haunch on a hemlock, and smoking marijuana on stage in Amsterdam. Surely her father doesn’t condone her behaviour even if it is keeping her in the headlines? I would expect any sensible father to object, vociferously.

The Mail Bag Don’t forget the little boy in Cane story

the blood test proved my suspicions. The normal blood sugar level in a dog is 7 – DoraDog’s blood sugar level is 27. This is extremely advanced diabetes – no wonder she was passing out and went blind so suddenly.

Dear Sir: In all of the drama that has been surrounding the seizure of Cane, and what has happened to him, I wonder who is worried about the little boy that was walking with his mother that was bitten. I notice there are many people to jump on the save Cane bandwagon, but where is the consideration for the innocent children that were bitten? For all the people on the bandwagon that state their love of animals, why are you not outraged and asking for help for the little boy bitten. Here is a four-year-old boy that was walking along his street holding his mother’s hand when he was attacked and bitten from behind. He then watched as Cane let go of him and chased down his six-year-old brother walking a few feet ahead, knocked him to the ground and stood on him. Here is a little boy that is now terrified of dogs. All dogs. Why are we not helping him? Here is a little boy that may never know the joy of loving animals the way that you claim to, because an irresponsible pet owner allowed his dog to roam the streets, and that dog eventually attacked. That is the true tragedy in this whole situation. A little boy of five may never know the unconditional love of a puppy! If this little boy had parents other than the ones that he does, he could grow up to be someone who abuses animals out of fear. Everyone seems so quick to judge those trying to protect him (regional district) and others, but no one has reached out a helping hand to him. What about reaching out to the family.

INSULIN SHOTS are keeping Dora alive and well, much to the relief of her owners.

Friendship with dog honoured Dear Sir: Our dog suddenly went blind in just one day recently. This is our story. Dora-Dog has been our best buddy for nearly 12 years. She has always been with us when we were sick or injured. She somehow can sense when something is wrong and would never leave your side

O

until you got better. I broke my ankle at work a few years ago. After the surgery I was bed ridden for nearly two months and Dora-Dog spent all day sitting between my legs with her head resting on my cast. Sometimes she would cry and give me that sad look. This is a dog that really cares about

people. Well now its payback time because now Dora-Dog is sick. Everyone told us that DoraDog is old and to just put her to sleep. I would not accept that. I thought that she was showing the symptoms of diabetes. It turned out that I was absolutely correct. We took her to the vet and

LNG? Oil? We need more information

verwhelming. That’s how Judy Gerow from Kitselas characterized the effect of the seemingly endless number of resource projects being proposed for northern BC. The hundreds of people who gathered at the REM Lee Theatre Nov. 13 to hear the panel of speakers gathered by MP Nathan Cullen agreed with her. There are presently five major liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects being proposed. There are six other potential LNG pipeline proponents. That’s on top of the Northwest Transmission Line that is being built and the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline that is being proposed for Alberta tarsands oil. Every major proposal raises the same questions. What will be the effect on the community and the surrounding environment? What are the advantages? Are they short-term or long-term? What are the risks? Are the risks being adequately planned for? What do we stand to lose? As the impacts pile up, what are the cu-

mulative effects? Most communities are illequipped to consider these questions, let alone answer them. These are decisions that are made at the federal or provincial level of government. Municipalities have little role, citizens less. Typically, there may be an open house where project proponents are on hand to speak about their project. The review process may require them to make the proposal publicly available, usually at the library, for a limited time. Occasionally, a company may open a community office so that their information is available there. But to be well and truly involved, communities need much more than that. They need far more information than the company’s proposal. They need to know how to get it and above all the time to review and discuss it. Citizens, interest groups and local government have the concerns but they seldom have the expertise, resources or time to consider them. How to level the playing field?

GUEST COMMENT

ROB HART Why not have every company that proposes a project that will have a large impact on our community contribute to the operation of an independent, local consultation centre that will make it possible for us to consider and discuss the proposal? The core mandate of such centre could be threefold: to make proposal information available in a continuing way, to collect related science and

to assist the community in asking questions arising, enabling ongoing discussion between the community and the companies that are proposing to impact it. Note that this does not create any level of community approval for proposals. It simply creates an informed conversation. How would such a centre be created and who would be involved? Bring together the stakeholders to form a community board, with representatives from local government, First Nations, the Chamber of Commerce, forestry, the Health Authority, educational institutions, social service agencies, environmental/ conservation groups and recreational groups. Hire staff skilled in community development and research. We have a model for just that. The Kalum Land and Resource Management Plan was developed through extensive community consultations during the 90s and continues to inform the balance between forestry and other land use activities. Companies that propose ma-

jor projects and therefore major changes in the local landscape may get all the requisite permits and approvals from government but that does not meant that they have the social licence to operate here. Social licence comes from companies encouraging local input before and during development. This licence is one of the most important for companies and it can only be created through meaningful consultation. Having that conversation builds understanding relationships and creates benefits and certainty for both communities and businesses. Communities become able to have a real and informed voice in resource projects and companies receive the opportunity to build support and receive social license for their activity and its impact. Let companies put their money where our mouth needs to be. Communities affected most should have a larger voice. Robert Hart is the present chair of the Kalum Land and Resource Management Plan Committee.

Did KIDS remove the Kermode? A GROUP calling itself Kermode Independent Defence Systems (KIDS) is taking credit for covering the Kermode bear symbol painted on a rock bluff looking over the old Skeena Bridge. Calling it an “unsightly piece of vandalism,” the KIDS “have done this to draw attention to the impending disappearance of Moksgm'ol (spirit bear),” reads an undated and unsigned handwritten letter dropped off at The Terrace Standard last night. “Too many industrial projects threaten fish and game habitat in our region,” the statement continues. The symbol, first painted approximately 20 years ago, had become an unofficial viewing attraction for locals and tourists.

It was painted over sometime in the last two weeks, drawing comment and questions about who might be responsible. “The KIDS are a non-violent action group dedicated to the preservation of the fishing and hunting lifestyle,” reads the statement. “KIDS hold progressive conservative family values. Our children should know the joy of teaching their grandchildren to hunt and fish. “We will not allow industry to trample on our futures,” the statement concludes. The letter did not name any specific members of the group, and there is no contact information provided. Online searches did not turn up any previous mentions of the group.

Meet your 2013-14 Terrace River kings

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:

Well this is a curable condition and we now have to give Dora-Dog a shot of insulin every day for the rest of her life. The cost of this treatment is a whopping $60 per month. We spend more than that on Dog food so this is trivial. When everyone else had given up on DoraDog I refused to listen. By doing so I saved my dog’s life. Also by doing this I have given everyone I know the joy of her compassion and her friendship for a few more years. Glenn Martin, Terrace, BC

Artists and poets unite in new book A NEW book is a collaboration between artists and poets in the northwest. Eight artists and 22 poets contributed work to the Summer Arts Festival juried arts show and the idea came up to do a book of the results, says artist Joan Conway. The book is also a fundraiser for the art gallery. “For myself, aside from being a really fun project, it’s to support artists and poets in the north,” says Conway. “It’s hard to have a presence so it’s up to us to create our own.” Some people in the book are very accomplished and some are very new and it gives them a chance for the experience to read in public and share their work. “You build up confidence as you expose yourself,” said Conway. This is the second book to come from the arts festival; the first was The Language of Trees and this book was born out of that experience.

“It was successful and exciting and inspired us to do something similar yet different,” she said. Artist Cindy Powell said she feels connected to people who lived along the river in the past and found old photos on the library website. She learned photo transfer from a workshop Conway held and used wood from an old kitchen cupboard from a local historical house. The photo she used was taken right when the riverboats stopped running on the river. And she put it all together to connect forest and trees, and the river that was all part of people’s lives. “The river is in people’s minds a lot, in their consciousness, especially with development [projects],” she said. Poems were placed close to photos so they could work together. The idea and the book itself gives people the opportunity to look at a subject in different ways.

ARTIST JOAN Conway, left, poet Katherine Bell and artist Cynthia Powell all have contributed to The Rivers Speak. “For myself, I really get excited about the work of people, other artists and it stimulates creativity and something everybody can participate in,” says

Conway. Already since the book was put together, several poets get together once a month. Conway would like to see an even big-

ger network of poets formed. There’s a lot of the movement forward in economic growth, and art is the soul of the community.

“It creates in town an artistic presence, not just an economic presence,” says Conway. The book has been printed in 300 copies and the first book, Lan-

guage of Trees, sold out its 200 copies quickly. For more on The Rivers Speak book launch, see City Scene under Reading on page 11.

From Grease is the Word through Hopelessly Devoted to You and to You’re the One that I Want, the play takes the audience through a school year from start to finish and the complicated relationship of T-Bird leader Danny Zuko and new girl, goody two-shoes Sandy Dumbrowski. Both discover it’s difficult to be yourself and deal with the pressure to be who everyone else wants you to be. And Zach Pflum, who plays Danny, got his T-Birds jacket at

WHILE A student in Germany, Michael Jones became solo cellist for the German Chamber Academy, playing concerts around the world and in major music festivals such as Salzburg. He continued to study music full time, participating in the solo master class courses at the Hindemith Foundation in Switzerland. Tours included China, Europe, the Americas, Australia and the Middle East, as well as recordings with the BBC and WDR. In 2002, he recorded the complete Bach Suites for solo cello in a 1667 Stradivarius cello for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. More recently, in July 2007, Jones made his debut concert tour of Japan and the Far East with his cello-guitar duo, the only duo of its kind in the world. Resulting from the tour, the duo was invited to perform in China during the Olympic year. He has lived in London, Cologne, Madrid and New York. He currently spends his free time in the Andalucian town of Jimena de la Frontera, where he has started a cello education centre, which serves the Costa del Sol area in southern Spain and Gibraltar.

MICHAEL JONES will perform with the Terrace Symphony Orchestra Dec. 1. In 2009, he was awarded the blue moon Swiss audio award for his recording of solo Bach, and 2010 marked the start of a new series of recordings both contemporary and classical.

Welcome to the driver’s seat

Established in 1902, Cadillac is one of the oldest luxury brands, and continues to be General Motors’ flagship in terms of refinement and technology. Zack Spencer

The CTS model is a lighter car, made of high tensile steel. It is stiffer, safer, handles better, and above all, is more efficient.

Question

Cadillac in the rear-view mirror of the European premium brands 2014 Cadillac CTS One auto trend that shows little sign of waning is the move towards more luxury or premium cars by manufacturers and consumers alike. As baby boomers age, they have earned the nicer things in life, and the offspring of baby boomers are getting used to the finer things in life, so more automakers are moving upscale. The Europeans do luxury and performance better than most and the Japanese luxury brands have been putting in their time to becoming a real force. But long before the Japanese, there have always been the American luxury brands, with many firsts in features and technology. Established in 1902, Cadillac is one of the oldest, along with Mercedes-Benz, and continues to be General Motors’ flagship in terms of refinement and technology. Looks The smaller Cadillac ATS was released a year ago and went on to win the North American Car of the Year award. General Motors has taken that platform and elongated it to produce the lightest mid-sized car in its class. It’s a full 173kg lighter than the benchmark BMW 5-Series it competes against, and 34kg lighter than the outgoing car. A lighter car, made of

ELIGIBLE OWNERS

Verdict The price of the CTS ranges from about $51,000 for the base model to $66,000 for the top premium trim level. The Vsport, high performance model is priced at almost $75,000. The Cadillac CTS is not an inexpensive car, but it offers many features like standard heated and vented leather seats, Bose stereo and push button start even on the base model. Compared to some of the other mid-sized luxury sedans it is less expensive, plus it is a worthy car for any driving enthusiast.

Youths spend week in Ottawa LOCAL YOUNG people were in Ottawa last week through a program called Encounters with Canada, a forum for youth in which different themes are explored each week of the school year. The theme for last week was Canada Remembers and the young people learned more about Canada’s military past by visiting museums and speaking with veterans and peacekeepers. They also attended Remembrance Day ceremonies at the national War Memorial. The local group included members of the 747 Air Cadet Squadron and with a cadet squadron from Atlantic Canada, the local cadets marched in the Ottawa Remembrance Day parade. Members of our cadet squadron in Ottawa were Dakota Taron, Lesley Hansen, Alycia Iuliano, Nicholas Ross, Ashlee Thompson, Mikala Dunn, Zachary Gordon, Jonathan Haynes and Mitchell Hess. With them were squadron captains David Ross and Florence Braam. Not part of the squadron but attending through Caledonia Senior Secondary was Katie Hollett. Also on the trip was Lesley Green, a former cadet. He laid a wreath at the war memorial in

Ottawa on behalf of Encounters with Canada. Some of the young people’s comments about being in Ottawa last week are below. Zachary Gordon: “I thought it was a great experience. In the future I hope to meet up with everyone at encounters!” Alycia Iuliano: “It’s been an incredible experience. We’ve been inside the parliament building and the peace tower. I’ve met so many new people and made new friends from all over Canada. If anyone is ever offered the chance to come to Encounters with Canada they definitely should. It’s amazing.” Johnathan Haynes: “Once in a lifetime ex-

perience. I am not likely to forget all the things I have done!” Dakota Taron: “Thought it was amazing! Definitely an experience I will not forget.”  Nicholas Ross: “I found that it broadened my horizons about the people who live in Canada. It also got me interested in learning French for the first time in my life. I would recommend this program to anyone who want to make good friends that will probably last a life time.”  Lesley Hansen: “I had the time of my life.  It was an amazing experience!” Lesley Green: “I enjoyed laying the wreath at the cenotaph, while I was there, I met some really awesome people.”

MP hosted LNG forum prompts discussion “For a number of months people in the northwest have been coming to me saying they feel a bit overwhelmed with what's being proposed, they're having a hard time keeping track of all of the different proponents, all of the different pipelines and terminals and what they all mean. Not just for the projects themselves, but for the economic, environmental, local impacts,” Cullen said to the audience. “This is a bit of a new model,” Cullen continued. “I've been to a lot of public meetings on resource development, I've been to meetings held by environment groups, and meetings hosted by First Nations, I've been to meetings hosted by the companies and I've often lamented that we couldn't have those presentations all at the same time in the same place so that I as a citizen could evaluate the pros and cons of any project being presented in the same way.” Panelists included the aforementioned Gerow and Pierce, Clean Energy Canada representative Jeremy Moorhouse; Cheryl Brown of Douglas Channel Watch; and Janice Shaben, president of the Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce. Geoff Morrison, of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers

SKEENA-BULKLEY VALLEY MP Nathan Cullen at the LNG forum he hosted in Terrace Nov. 13. (CAPP) was also in the audience, and fielded questions relevant to his association. And there were a number of audience questions. Increased helicopter traffic, decreased air and water quality, negative affects on wildlife and eco-tourism, lack of sufficient housing, increased emissions, and overall health impacts were just some of the concerns raised by audience members and some panelists throughout the evening. Local panelists – Shaben, Brown, and Gerow – all described the pace of develop-

ment as overwhelming, touching on the various decisions their groups, and the area community, have had to confront in what they say is a relatively short time. Shaben said residents need to keep a keen eye on developments, and ensure Terrace receives a fair share of the revenue from these projects, as our infrastructure will feel the strain – a sentiment echoed by Terrace city councillor Bruce Bidgood, who asked Pierce during the question period whether her company would publicly support council's bid for a northwest revenue

sharing agreement similar to that which exists in northeast B.C. when meeting with government officials. While Pierce said she hadn't explored the idea of a revenue sharing agreement, one of the things the company is looking at doing would be to conduct a “social impact assessment”, which considers road use, hospitals, infrastructure, emergency services. “All of those things are part of what we have to assess as a project proponent so we can make sure the local community has what they need in order to maintain the quality of life and the services that they have,” Pierce said. In response to an audience question about recommendations on the best way to study the cumulative effects of a project, Douglas Channel Watch's Brown said there needed to be the total cumulative effects of all of the projects need to be studied. “All projects need to be evaluated within a strategic environmental assessment piece that would include all projects, all having to consider one another,” Brown said. “Right now they don't have to consider one another at all.” Full audio of the meeting is available at www.terracestandard. com.

Centennial Sr. Boys win ‘A’ zones FOR THE first time in almost a decade the Centennial Christian School Seahawks Sr. Boys ‘A’ volleyball team has captured the title of Northwest Zone Champions. The team beat Ebenezer Christian School in the finals of a tight zone tournament, held here at the Thornhill Jr. Secondary School gym two weekends ago. The last time the team took the first place spot in the zone was in 2004. “It was a tremendous experience,” said coach Joel Ringma. “Quite an emotional roller coaster in some ways.” Between the five teams in the zone, competition was tight, he said. And in the semi-final game against Bulkley Valley Christian School, Grade 9 Evan Veldman dislocated his thumb. “That obviously hurt us and we ended up losing that game,” he said. But Grade 12 Ryan Roseboom – better known for hockey – filled in for Veldman, leading to a win in the next game and in the final. “He did a stand up job and was able to help us go over the top,” said Ringma. “We were thankful to have him.” They’re heading to provincials at Duncan Christian School this week – for the third year in a row, and the fourth time as a school – the northwest zone sends the top three teams to provincials, so Ebenezer and Houston Christian will also be on the court. “Even the fourth place team Bulkley Valley was a really strong team as well,” said Ringma. To prepare, the team played an exhibition game against the Caledonia Sr. Boys – who are also heading to their own ‘AAA’ provincials in Kelowna next week. “Most of the guys that are going have some experience, so that’s good,” he said. “But really we’re just going through the same kind of practise routines, trying to ramp up the intensity.” Games for the Seahawks start tomorrow, Nov. 21, and run through the weekend.

Terrace gymnasts ready to raise the bar YOU COULD say that gymnastics is a sport for all seasons – spring, summer, fall, winter, the Terrace Peaks Gymnastics Club is plugging away at their club in Thornhill, with only a three week break in the summer, learning new routines and skills in order to shine during the competition season. That competition season is slowly approaching, with a mock meet planned for Terrace in December, not only giving the team a chance to practice, but giving the parents and board members who recently completed a judging course a chance to practice as well. And the club’s home meet, which will see competitors from zone 7 – Smithers, Kitimat, and Terrace – take to the mat is Jan. 11. That competition is both trials for provincials and trials for the Winter Games, to be held in Mission in February. The club’s Shannon Schuster, who has been training since she was eight, is getting set to try out for the Winter Games, says coach Ambra Marak, and there’s still time for other athletes to choose to try out. Marak has been the head coach for nearly five years, and many of the girls started training around the same time. “I’ve definitely seen the girls grow and become good gymnasts, they were just little when I started with them – six and seven years old, now they’re 10, 11,” she said. “I’d like them to stay until Grade 12, because then they can get scholarships.”

In prepping for the season, Marak says the team travelled to a training camp in Smithers put on by a Russian coach who lives in Kelowna – the camp was beneficial to Marak as a coach, she said, because she’s been able to put that coach’s tips to use at the home gym. One thing she’d like to see happen this year, that would help the girls’ training, is to completely redo the bar area in the gym, including installing the club’s new trainer bar, with wooden and metal rail. “I would love to put the new bar up and reconstruct the whole bar area,” she said. “Bar is getting harder and harder every year. That’s the one thing that is changing a lot – YouTube bars from the ‘70s and then look at some from the 2000’s and you’ll see a huge, huge difference.” But in order to do so the club needs volunteers, which are hard to come by. “We’re a non-profit,” she said. “So we don’t have a contractor that can just come in and work the whole weekend and set up the bars.” On the recreational side, the gym is busier than it’s ever been, she said. “We’ve got wait lists, I’ve never seen it this busy,” she said. “I think it’s a combination of us being in the community, having new staff members, and the town is just booming.” ANNA KILLEN PHOTO This month, the club is participating in Sports Day in Canada Nov. 30 – all athletes at the club get MEMBERS OF the Terrace Peaks Gymnastics Club in the club’s current to wear their favourite sports jerseys that week. bar area on Nov. 12.

Ride your bike all winter long WITH THE snow creeping down the mountains, many people are probably gearing down their bikes, and getting geared up for the ski hill. But cycling throughout the winter is a great way to stay in shape and get outside year round – as long as you’re careful. In low light and winter conditions basic safety precautions become more important than usual. City of Terrace sustainability co-ordinator, and Terrace Off Road Cycling member, Tara Irwin has some tips on how to keep riding through the seasons. General tips The first step is to ensure your bike is in good working order – especially the brakes. When out cycling in low light or challenging conditions, ride predictably, in a straight line, and use proper hand signals to indicate turns and lane changes. It is going to be even more difficult in slushy or icy conditions for vehicles to react, so give them extra space and warning if you are changing lanes or turning. As always, ride with traffic, and be alert and careful at intersections, where most collisions happen. For a refresher on proper conduct when cycling, including signaling, left turns and generally how to ride with traffic, refer to the BC Bike Sense – Operators Manual. Lighting As stated in the BC Bike Sense manual, you need to BE SEEN, and be able to SEE the road, as well. Visibility is poor in wet weather – which we have “on occasion” in Terrace – and it is even more important that motorists see you when they are distracted by challenging driving conditions, such as

W

fog, ice or in low light conditions. And it’s the law to have lights, front and rear, whenever visibility is reduced. The specific requirements can be found in the BC Motor Vehicle Act. Cars coming from the side may have trouble seeing you regardless of bike lights. Reflective material on your bicycle and clothing will increase overall visibility, and reflective bands or lights on wrists make your hand signals more visible. Bike Sense BC says the most common statement made by a driver in a vehicle/cyclist collision is "I didn't see them". The next is "I couldn't see them". Cold and Wet Weather Riding As we know, cold weather results in frost, black ice and snow. Traction is reduced in these conditions and bikes and cyclist will need to ride more cautiously, especially at intersections. Using wider tires with lowered pressure can help, and if you are serious about riding in the winter, a pair of studded tires is a great investment. The resources for properly preparing for cycling in the winter are numerous, but in Terrace our winters generally mean slushy wet snow. Fenders in this case are essential. A properly fitting set of fenders can mean showing up to your destination soaked or warm and dry. And keen cyclists – and also those who will be walking or running at night – can pick up a reflective arm band or blinky LED bike light from the City of Terrace as part of the city’s “Lighten Up” campaign. Visit city hall or see the city’s Facebook page or website for more details.

e are fascinated with and biased toward big brained mammals. Proof of this is provided by the growing interest in whale watching, now a significant part of the tourist industry. This human interest explains why when the movie “The Cove” revealed the barbarity of Japanese dolphin fishers, the horror of it catalyzed international outrage. Most of the so called civilized world watched in fascination as Jane Goodall delved deeper and deeper into the ways of the wild chimpanzees of Tanzania, learning much about them and much about us over a 40-year span. We were horrified when Dian Fossey, another of Louis Leakey’s proteges, was brutally murdered by poachers who resented the fact that she was alerting the rest of the world to their cruel illicit trade in gorilla parts. We simply could not get our heads around the barbarity of men who could heartlessly slaughter these great sentient creatures to sell their genitals to oriental apothecaries whose customers mistakenly thought ingesting them in powdered form would somehow increase their sexual potency. What kind of vile person would be capable killing a gorilla to so that its paw might be made into an ashtray? Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Birute Galdikas, Leakey’s Angels as they came to be known, had shown us that chimps, gorillas, and orang-utans were more intelligent

TERRACE RINGETTE players at the Joy Hoffman Ringette Tournament in Prince George earlier this month.

Terrace ringette sees success on the road

THE TERRACE Ringette Association had three teams (U9, U12, and U16) attend the annual Joy Hoffman Ringette Tournament in Prince George November 8 to 10. Going up against teams from Houston, Prince George, and Quesnel, all three teams dominated the ice, with the U9s going undefeated; the U12’s seeing one tie and three wins; and the U16 team gaining momentum over the tournament – losing their first

game, but tying their second, and winning the last two. For the U16 team, goals were scored by: Jennifer Dahl, Hannah Resch, Olivia Resch, Peter Nicholson, Danny Yoo, Crimson Leblond, Sarah Mcleod, Quinn Beblow, Cassidy Pavao, and Bryn Giesbrecht. For the U12 team, goals were scored by: Lisa Nicholson, Ty Giesbrecht, Coby Landru, Grace Magnusson, Megan Alexander, May Eng-

Some Terrace players are also part of the AA Northern Lights Team based out of Prince George. Their first tournament is in Lacombe, Alberta at the end of the month.

backtracked some 50 yards, then slipped into some dense brush, without eluding its tracker, the bear then carefully walked over a snow field atop rocks that had appeared as the snow melted in the heat of the sun during the course of the day. Two years ago a large black bear, attracted by the garbage and neighbourhood apples had made several appearances in the neighbourhood. Someone had called the Conservation Officers. Officer Kluivers drove up. I persuaded him to hang a sign at the end of the road. He returned later with a trap. In it he put rotting meat and garbage. That evening the bear appeared. As I watched from my living room window, he took a turn around the cage. Then he stood up on his hind legs, shook the trap defiantly, insulted, it seemed, that anyone would expect him to fall for such an obvious ruse. The door slammed shut and he ambled off. Bears use tools. They scratch themselves with branches. Polar bears have been seen bludgeoning walruses with chunks of ice. Ursinologists, scientists who study bears, tell us that bears play. The express a range of emotions, exhibit behaviours akin to altruism, and demonstrate self awareness. They are smarter that your dog and probably more intelligent than a three year old kid. They are easily as intelligent and perceptive as the great apes. Our government allows men to kill them for money, for fun, and for their fur. More next week...stay tuned.

From front

Boating tragedy Tidal refers to the water coming in from the ocean which affects the tides on the river, he explained. The three drowning victims were found with their lifejackets on. “I’m confident I can say the only reason why they were located is because they were wearing them,” said Jephson. “Unfortunately we’re never going to know when or where they went in.” “At this point, we don’t know if they made it to the boat launch or if they were on their return back,” Jephson said, referring to the boat launch directly across from the hotsprings. Jephson said the conditions on the water weren’t known at the time but were bad enough to capsize the trio’s 12-foot boat. “I know people that cross over in kayaks and canoes so it’s totally dependent on the weather and on the conditions,” Jephson said. Terrace Search and Rescue was asked specifically for this search because their boats are jet-propelled, meaning they can enter shallower waters than can other boats. Jephson’s advice for people going out to remote locations by boat is to be aware of the surroundings and to wear flotation devices or lifejackets. This isn’t the first time people have died on the Skeena River in the Tyee area. On April 29, 2001, four young men from Prince Rupert ages 18, 23, 24 and 27 left the area of the Tyee boat launch in a 12-foot aluminum boat. A search was started when they did not turn up where they were supposed to be later that day. Their boat was found capsized and all four young men were then found in the general vicinity.

Transferred cop faces hearings One man, Robert Wright, was taken to hospital three times from the Terrace RCMP detachment during the night of his drunk driving arrest April 21, 2012 before being flown to hospital in Vancouver where he remained for 11 weeks. Since his release from hospital, he requires full-time care due to a brain injury, said his wife, Heather Prisk. Heideman was alleged to have wrongly used force against Wright while he was in custody. A five-page Nov. 2, 2012 report from the provincial criminal justice branch’s outlined why it declined to approve criminal charges against any member of the RCMP in connection with the April 21, 2012 incident involving Wright in the Terrace RCMP detachment cell block. “The branch has thoroughly reviewed an investigative report prepared by the New Westminster Police Department on this matter, and has concluded that there is not a substantial likelihood of any conviction for a criminal charge,” read the report. “The available evidence does not establish that the force used by police in the incident went beyond what is legally permissible under the Criminal Code.” “Under Canadian criminal law, where a police officer’s use of force is lawful, the officer cannot be held criminally culpable for injury or even death which may result from that use of force....,” the report stated. “Given that the Crown cannot prove that the force used by police in dealing with Mr. Wright was either unnecessary or excessive, there is no substantial likelihood of conviction on any offence in these circumstances,” the report continued. The second man, William Watts, said he was punched, subjected to racist slurs and had a spit bag put over his head while in police custody when he was arrested for being belligerent and aggressive after he called police for assistance with a family member on May

15, 2012. A spit hood is a bag which, when placed over someone’s head, prevents a person from spitting on to another person and can catch and retain blood, vomit and other material. “Crown counsel has concluded that the available evidence does not reliably establish the

accuracy of allegations that the arresting officer repeatedly punched Mr. [William] Watts in the head,” said a lengthy statement from the provincial government’s criminal justice branch March 6 of this year. “Crown counsel has also concluded that it cannot prove unlawful force was used in pull-

ing Mr. Watts from a police vehicle, resulting in an uncontrolled and unsupported drop to the ground. “Based on the available evidence as a whole, the branch has determined there is no substantial likelihood of a conviction on a charge of assault,” the March 6 report continued.

Sawmill inspections continue. WorkSafeBC Prevention staff have been working with industry, other provincial regulators, and stakeholders to ensure that BC sawmills and other businesses that deal with wood dust are, and continue to be, in compliance with safety requirements. Directive order, follow-up inspections and industry action

targeted inspections of other wood products manufacturing industries, including pellet plants, and plywood and pulp and paper mills. We

In April 2012, we issued a directive order to all sawmills in the province to conduct a risk assessment for combustible wood dust, and

implement a dust-control program. Officers

Ongoing and sustainable compliance

inspected every sawmill in the province for compliance with that order. A CEO-led sawmill taskforce and industry advisory group developed safety resources to distribute to industry, including best practice guidelines and an audit tool for dust-control management. Three new occupational health and safety guidelines related to wood dust were published, along with two hazard alerts to address risks specifically related to wood dust. Our officers re-inspected all sawmills to evaluate the industry’s efforts to manage combustible dust.

Scope expanded to include wood processing operations

In 2013 and going forward, our officers will continue to address combustible dust as a regular part of their inspectional activity. This winter, a dedicated team of officers will re-inspect sawmills throughout the province. The sawmill industry has made significant progress in addressing dust management. We want to ensure that progress and compliance with wood-dust management requirements is being sustained. Safety in BC sawmills is a vitally important issue, firstly to those who work in the industry, and also to their families and communities. Our common goal is to make wood-dust management an integral part of manufacturing operations. We will continue to work proactively with businesses around the province to make safety

In 2012 and into 2013, officers also conducted

a fundamental part of this industry.
