Court date awaits city over sewage

Hurry up and wait is the only phrase that can describe the pending court case between the cities of Rossland and Trail over sewer system service funding. No court date has been set—with one earlier this summer postponed—in the dispute that has been ensnarled for more than one year over the percentage each municipality pays into the regional service. In fact, the City of Rossland is trying to arrange a pre-arbitration meeting, said Mayor Greg Granstrom, but has been unsuccessful to date. “We need to see if there is a way we can avoid arbitration,” he said. In January 2013 the province’s arbitrator overruled the City of Rossland’s contention of an arbitration process over the sewer system service with the City of Trail. Rossland objected to whether the provincial arbitrator had the right to hear the dispute.

An application to approve a rezone to allow a Red Mountain property owner to add a second recreation cabin to his property was approved by council. The proposal by Warren Hamm— an upper Red Mountain Ski Resort resident—was to add a second recreational cabin to his 20-acre property and would amend the MA-1 zone (the skiing terrain of Red Mountain). However, an additional recreational cabin allowed on one parcel in the zone facilitated rental lodging, dual ownership and subsequent subdivision, former city planner Mike Maturo had cautioned, scenarios not supported by the city’s Official Community Plan. He recommended leaving the density at one recreation cabin per parent parcel. Councilor Jody Blomme did not see how the potential re-zone would affect the Red Mountain neighbours

The Ministry of Forests Recreation Sites and Trails Branch has given the community one year in which to create a management plan for the proposed Nancy Greene Recreation site. Final approval of the Recreation Site is contingent on the community and the ministry coming to agreement on the plan. An initial public workshop was held on Oct. 29 to share information and examine the issues relating to the Recreation Site. A second follow-up workshop will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 3, at 7 p.m. in the Miners’ Union Hall. At the Dec. 3 workshop the results of the Oct. 29 workshop and the District Recreation Officer’s responses will be considered. The participants will then be invited to brainstorm what an outline of an acceptable plan for the Recreation Site might look like, and what would be the most effective process and group to carry the planning work forward. Immediately after the public workshop, the Friends of the Rossland Range Society will hold its annual general meeting in the Miners’ Union Hall. The public is welcome to attend.

In September 2012 the two cities were not in agreement over a preferred arbitrator. Rossland believed the jurisdiction of the dispute and resolution officer to order arbitration at all was questionable. The delay allegedly puts the City of Rossland into arrears of five years—at $109,000 per year—on a service Trail city council contends it is overpaying for. Lois-Leah Goodwin, executive director of Intergovernmental Relations and Planning under the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, was appointed as the dispute resolution officer in August 2012 to help settle the matter of who pays for what in the delivery of regional sewer service between Trail, Rossland and Warfield. Goodwin was required to review the matter and, under the Community Charter, direct the dispute to binding arbitration. Trail city council had notified the province in late May 2012 it wanted to engage in the process of arbitration with the City of Rossland to determine the correct percentages of shared costs for sewage service in the Greater Trail region. Trail currently pays close to 70 per cent of the regional budget following a formula created in the late 1960s, based mostly on population and projected growth. Last year Trail drafted a cost-sharing proposal based on population, and a new formula should be based on 50 per cent population and 50 per cent water consumption.

and had set a public hearing for Oct. 15 in council chambers to hear information on the matter Council advanced the bylaw to first and second reading on September 23, 2013 and had a Public Hearing on October 28, 2013. At the meeting on October 28, 2013, City staff has noted that a number of zoning bylaw and building code servicing requirements—road access, emergency services, sewer/ water—still remain outstanding. The issuance of a building permit will first require registered legal access to the property, a city staff report read. “Due to the remote location, other non-permitted uses (shortterm lodging and associated commercial servicing) could appear as two recreation cabins drives a stronger economic model to support new associated activities alongside them,” it said. A second recreation cabin was defined as an accessory use to the other. editor@rosslandnews.com

negatively. “And it is our prerogative to make exceptions to the rules,” she said. Councilor Jill Spearn wanted to see less cabins on that area of Red Mountain, rather than more. Council later passed third reading and adoption of the bylaw— both by a vote of three to two. At a city council meeting on Sept. 9 council gave first and second reading to bylaw 2556—a bylaw that amends the zoning bylaw to allow Hamm’s MA-1 zoned parcel to have up to two recreation cabins. City staff brought the recommendation to rescind forward after they discovered the bylaw number assigned to the amendment had already been utilized by another bylaw. Based upon legal advice, it was recommended council strike first and second readings and re-do first and second readings with the correct bylaw number.

here is an energy in the air around Rossland and it has nothing to do with the FortisBC Energy Diet. Winter is here. At least, winter has settled into the mountains and its Rossland Range bretheren, if not in the lower reaches of the city proper yet. And with winter and snow the recreational life of Rosslanders blossoms, bringing to life a range of pursuits that have laid dormant for the warmer weather months—pursuits that, for many, were the reasons they moved to and stayed in the city. It’s the on season and it seems like it is also the on season for various projects and issues that have been developing for years in Rossland. Like the Rossland Range itself. With the second workshop for the Friends of Rossland Range Society set to go on Tuesday (7 p.m., Miners’ Union Hall), the community has a chance to put a further stamp of protection on the coveted recreational land. The province has listened to the people in granting the area provisional Recreational Site status, now the community has to fulfill the bill and make a plan that satisfies the needs, wants and desires of everyone who has a stake. Get out Tuesday and help out.

Carbon neutral scheme with Kootenay link is sinking British columbia Views

T

TOM FlETCHER

wo days after Energy Minister Bill Bennett announced the demise of the Pacific Carbon Trust, the public accounts committee convened at the legislature to pound a few more nails into its carbon-sequestering coffin. Assistant Auditor General Morris Sydor was there to defend his report from last March that concluded the B.C. government was not “carbon neutral” in 2010, because the trust paid $6 million for hastily arranged offset projects that were not valid. An Encana Corp. gas flaring reduction project at Fort Nelson and a forest preserve in the Kootenays would have proceeded without assistance from $25 a tonne carbon fee imposed on hospitals, universities, colleges and until last year, school districts. In fact they did proceed without this subsidy. The government continues to deny this, but

not many people outside the international carbon offset sales racket believe them. The Pacific Carbon Trust’s functions will continue, Bennett said. Instead of a board of directors and 18 staff, five people headed by an assistant deputy minister will evaluate projects and bestow millions taken from college, university and health authority budgets each year. B.C.’s school districts are still paying $5 million a year to offset such nefarious activities as heating their schools. But now the money goes into a “Carbon Neutral Capital Program,” and districts have to apply to get their money back for emission-reducing projects. This is going so well, according to Bennett, that post-secondary institutions and health authorities will be converted to a similar program in the years ahead. How is that school program going? Here are some examples. The Coast Mountains School District around Terrace paid $66,452 for carbon offsets last year. It got back most of its three years of offset payments as a grant

to complete a boiler upgrade for its Kitimat high school. Abbotsford and Nanaimo school districts each have to pay about $100,000 a year. They got money back for school boiler upgrades as well, although local school officials say that would not likely have been the top priority for spending, if it hadn’t been for the program that forces districts to spend grants immediately on emission reduction. Surrey school district paid out $585,000 last year, and also upgraded boilers. Vancouver’s pitch this year was for three electric cars. Leaving aside the distortion of spending priorities caused by this restrictive taxand-spend scheme, what happens when they run out of boilers to upgrade? And has it occurred to the government’s “carbon neutral” braintrust that those new boilers are still burning natural gas? This program is about to be foisted onto universities and hospitals. Does anyone actually believe that heating hospitals and college classrooms is a key driver of global warming? Presumably our

carbon czars know that 40 per cent of B.C.’s humangenerated greenhouse gas emissions are from transportation, and a few electric cars for school district staff aren’t going to change that. And what happens when colleges and hospitals run out of boilers to modernize and insulation to upgrade? It won’t be long at this rate. In hindsight, this “carbon neutral government” scheme is perhaps the worst single idea implemented in 12 years of B.C. Liberal government. Gordon Campbell’s grand vision of a province where government sets the green standard and the private sector economy follows has simply not worked. The NDP presented a motion in April 2012 to relieve hospitals, colleges and universities of their carbon offset obligation. The idea was supported by a B.C. Liberal backbencher, who argued that B.C. should also scrap the carbon tax and quit pretending it can change the climate. His name? Bill Bennett.

Hall upgrades inch forward with approval

IN BRIEF Fundraiser planned for Johnsons

IDA KORIC

Too much time has passed since Phil Johnson’s family house burned to the ground in the early morning hours of Aug. 8. Brook (Phil’s daughter) and Colin (Brook’s husband) and their children lost everything in the fire. “They were lucky to get out with their lives,” said family friend John Cullen. “Insurance covered very little and none of the contents at all.” A group of Phil’s friends have decided to hold a fundraiser New Years Eve with a dance at the Miners’ Union Hall with the band No Excuse. There will be prizes, surprises, a late night snack with party favours and champagne. The funds raised will help the Johnsons with the furnishings for their house once it is finished. “There is no doubt that over the years, Phil has contributed selflessly to his community and this would be a great time to give back,” said Cullen. Friends of Phil Johnson and family can purchase tickets ($40 each) at the Cellar. Doors will open at 8 p.m. No minors please. For further information, please email John Cullen jcull4@gmail.com.

The Miner’s Union Hall is a well-loved structure in Rossland’s downtown core, and has served the community well as a venue for Gold Fever Follies, concerts, film festivals and dances. There is a portion of the building, however, that has remained under utilized since the miners first conceived of it over a century ago: the attic. The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture have had their eyes on the space for years, in the hopes of turning it into a green room for artists and performers. At the Nov. 25 city council meeting, the RCAC was granted their request for a letter of support from the City of Rossland, which will allow the two entities to move forward on a joint

project, and allow the RCAC to embark on fundraising initiatives. The City of Rossland has been putting money aside for several years, in the hopes of completing muchneeded structural upgrades to the hall. The decision has now been made to join forces and resources with the RCAC’s green room project, so that common materials and workers could be used simultaneously in an effort to save both groups money, and shorten the combined project time. “The attic [of the Miner’s Hall] is such a beautiful space, and our hope is to create a place for performers to change costumes, prepare make-up, and for somewhere to be before and after performances,” said RCAC member Ann Demaude about the project’s vision. “Currently,

bands and artists just have to wait in the wings.” The required renovations, however, will not come cheaply. Last year, the RCAC hired Nelson architect and heritage building specialist, Thomas Loh, to draft a plan for the space. Loh’s historically respectful design has been estimated at $450,000; a daunting sum for any community group. This is why the RCAC was eager to gain written support from council, and start on their fund-seeking endeavours. The first target will be B.C. Creative Spaces, which focusses specifically on the improvement of performance venues. The Columbia Basin Trust has also extended an invite for a grant application for the project. Demaude saw the partnership with the city as a

MINING THE HALL The city has plans to do upgrades to the hall and a reserve fund is in place to accomplish that work. The city is planning renovations for the hall that potentially include new roofing, removal of the chimney, new windows and refinishing the exterior. The RCAC proposed rolling the attic renovation and the exterior renovations into a single project. Efficiencies could be realized and reserve funds could leverage additional funding.

very positive step. “We can move forward to create a formal plan together, saving taxpayer dollars along the way,” she said. Demaude anticipated funding goals would likely not be achieved before the summer of 2015, but wanted the community to know that the wheels were always turning behind the scenes, and the project continues to draw closer to becoming a reality.

SEVEN SUMMITS CENTRE

Disappointed over one-year shuttle To the Editor: As an overseas visitor wishing to ski Red Mountain I have found it extremely difficult to find out if there was a shuttle service between the township and the mountain. This is important criterion when choosing a destination. It determines where you stay, shop and eat. I cannot tell you how disappointing it was to read about the short sightedness of a one-year trial for shuttle service. Surely your community relies on the mountain for income? Why make it hard for people to get around? In every other resort I have skied (Japan, Austria, USA, Canada) there has always been a bus to and from the resort. Sometimes there is a charge and sometimes not, but really it doesn’t matter … charge to cover some of the cost. When you have travelled such a distance a couple of dollars for the bus is nothing. I hope you are able to pass my comment on to the relevant persons. Marie Agostinho, Sydney, Australia

I’m a ski racer. Not being on the snow can be really frustrating for me. So when there is snow falling down from the sky, but I know the resort won’t be open for another month, I get a little bit anxious waiting for the ski season to start. The good part is that this year I don’t have to go through that nervous waiting period. The Red

Mountain Racers have set up a series of racing camps for us racers to go to this year. On the 25th of November, some of the Red Mountain Racers came back from a five-day long camp at Panorama Mountain Village. A few weeks before this camp, a smaller group of ski racers came back from a three-week long racing camp in France. Not only is the race team getting a

PUBLIC NOTICE Rossland City Council wishes to extend an invite to all Residents, Service Clubs, Non-Profit Societies, groups and charitable organizations to attend a Town Hall Meeting to discuss and give input on the draft Community Funding Application form and procedure and the accompanying Grant in Aid Policy. Two opportunities to participate will be held at City Hall, 1899 Columbia Avenue: • Monday, December 2, 2013 from 7:00 – 9:00 pm •

Tuesday, December 3, 2013 from 2:00 – 5:00 pm

Copies of the draft Application Form and Policy are available on www.rossland.ca and at City Hall.

Please come  out  and  give  us  your  input.

Ready for ski season

head start on training, giving us a better chance to bring some medals home to Rossland, but we’re also learning valuable team building skills. We have to cooperate with one another— sharing rooms in the hotels, making dinner for one another, and being supportive towards one another when we have a good run down the race-

course. These camps are a very valuable experience and I think that’s pretty darn cool. The Red Mountain Racers will be going to another camp in Panorama on December 3, during which they will see the women’s downhill in Lake Louise. This should also be a very rewarding experience, allowing the team to improve

by seeing what techniques and tricks professional ski racers use. The racers will return six days later, before Red Mountain Resort hopefully opens on the 14th of December. It’ll be a great season. Sophia Rodyakin is a ski racer and Seven Summits learner in Grade 9.

“There is a magic in the mountains that is not easily expressed with words,” admits Jenny Baillie. But that’s not stopping her from expressing it with paint. In 2012, Baillie and four other Kootenay artists— including fellow Rosslanders Stephanie Gauvin and Louise Drescher, Mirja Vahala from Castlegar, and Brigitte Desbois from Nelson—started what they hope will become an annual painting retreat to capture the magic of the mountains on canvas. On their inaugural trip, the group spent five days painting in the Selkirk Mountains. The self funded venture was initiated by Gauvin who was inspired to bring her passion for Plein Air (the French term for painting outdoors) to the West Kootenays after participating in “Art in the Park,” a celebration of Yoho National Park’s 125th anniversary. This past summer, the Carlyle Group of Painters— named after the location of their first retreat - headed to Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park in the BC

Rockies to spend a week “on top of the world—unplugged and unattainable,” according to Drescher. The location was chosen by Gauvin after hearing about the grandeur of Mount Assiniboine from good friends and longtime Rossland residents, Claude Duchesne and Annick Blouin, who now own Mount Assiniboine Lodge. Getting to the lodge, an eight-hour hike, required helicopter assistance to deliver the group’s gear (which included paints, canvas, and a telescoping easel with umbrella in addition to the standard food, clothing and sleeping bag). Travel was funded in part through grants from the Rossland Council for Arts and Culture, Nelson and District Arts Council, Castlegar Arts Council, and the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance. The results of their seven day battle with the sun, wind, rain—not to mention the marmots trying to eat their lunch and mosquitos trying to eat them—will be on display at the Rossland Gallery in the upcoming show entitled The Carlyle Painters

Group: Paintings from Mount Assiniboine. The show, which will consist of up to 60 paintings ranging in size from small 8”x10” to large 40”x 50”, starts with an opening reception on Friday, Nov. 29 from 6-9 p.m. The paintings will remain on display at the Rossland Gallery from Dec. 1-15. The location for 2014’s

Plein Air has not yet been determined but the group definitely plans to get out into the mountains again next summer. “Doing art retreats is for us very exhilarating,” said Gauvin. “We get up there and share the same wonder of the beauty that surrounds us, and a deep appreciation and love for being able to work at our craft.”

ticket prices and draws Early season ticket prices and the early bird draw are still going until Dec. 1. Winners from the Nov. 3 draw: $50 gift certificate from Alpine Grind: Joanna Heikkila; 3Pacs from RED: Sandra Owatz and Howard May; Mountain Nugget chocolate: Patricia Senecal; $50 gift certificate from Gericks: Bob George; skate ski lesson with Lesley Beatson: Tarn Bazley. And from the November 15th draw: Cat Skiing with Big Red Cats: Emily Barrie; 3Pacs from Red Mountain: Sydney Gomez, Juliana Kok, and Rino DeBiasio; Mountain Nugget chocolates: Ray Hoilund; $50 gift certificate from Gerick’s: Paul Heikkila; adult season pass at Black Jack: Krista Svedahl. Winners have been contacted by email. A big thank you to the local businesses for the fantastic prizes. The final early bird draw happens on Dec. 1 so get your season’s pass and enjoy the tracks.

Due to the great early snow Black Jack Cross Country Ski club has been grooming since Nov. 6 up at the higher elevation biathlon trails and has recently also started grooming the lower trails. The club will officially open on Saturday, Nov. 30. The kiosk and ski rentals will be staffed this weekend and then most days starting Saturday, Dec. 7. Alexandra (Alex) Loeb, Black Jack president said, “It has been great to see so many skiers out enjoying themselves for the past few weeks.” Skiers will enjoy all their favorite trails plus the newly re-opened Ophir trails, an extended (to 2.2 km) and better flowing doggy loop as well as better drainage on many core trails this season. Much of this work is due to generous grants in preparation for the Haywood NorAm races this Dec. 14-15. The NorAm races will be an opportunity to see most of North America’s best skiers in action, vying for world stage spots. Trail improvements A big thanks is going out to the following organizations for supporting the trail improvements and the Haywood NorAm: Columbia Basin Trust, RDKB Area B, Southern Interior Development Initiative Trust and CBT Community Initiatives Program. NorAm major local sponsors include Teck Trail Operations, Kootenay Savings Community Foundation, Red Mountain and MountainFM. NorAm local sponsors include

Nelson and District Credit Union, Gerick Cycle and Sports and Big Red Cats. Ambassadors on the trail This season will introduce a new program on the trails. Black Jack “ski ambassadors” will be cruising the trails to offer help to visitors, answering questions and encouraging folks to wear their passes. The ambassadors are all volunteers who are longtime club members. So please say a friendly hello to skiers with bright green arm bands and wear your passes where they can see them. “The new ambassadors will help us create a fun and friendly atmosphere. We want new skiers to feel welcome and comfortable out on the tracks,” said Loeb. The new Black Jack ski ambassadors will be out at “Bring a Friend to Ski for Free” day on Saturday, Dec. 21. They will be giving one-hour orientation tours of the trails starting at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Tours are open to any new skiers and/or members. More in store Black Jack has a great slate of fun events scheduled for this year— from photo contests to celebrate our 30-year anniversary to the return of Tour de Soup and Ski with Santa. We are looking for extra volunteers so we can expand our events. Feel like hosting a New Year’s Eve bonfire or ladling soup? Please contact the club and keep your eye on the website for a complete list of events. And don’t forget about the Loppet, which will be held on Feb. 22. It’s all about participation and it’s our 30th annual.

Pet of the Week

On November 13, 2013, a stray rabbit was brought into the Trail Regional BCSPCA. The staff named him Jelly and he has quickly won the hearts of all who meet him. He is approximately 3 years old and is a neutered male. He has a very lovely black and grey coat, with cute brown feet. He is friendly, loves to eat and enjoys when he is allowed out to wander the room he is in. Jelly is very sure of himself for a rabbit, and doesn’t appear nervous, like some of his kind can be. If Jelly sounds like the companion for you, please contact the Trail BCSPCA at 250-368-5910 or trail@spca.bc.ca
