Three guilty after bears were shot By Ryan Jensen

THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

HAZELTON - Three Gitanyow men were found guilty in Hazelton Provincial Court Jan. 23 of charges relating to the killing of a sow grizzly and cub. Robbie Shirey was convicted of four offences under the B.C. Wildlife Act for an incident involving a sow grizzly and cub in early November 2012. He was convicted of shooting the bears as they were attempting to eat a moose carcass that had been hanging in his yard for about two weeks, said Bulkley-Stikine con-

servation officer Flint Knibbs. A second cub was also killed by conservation officers after its mother was shot. Knibbs said Shirey had been asked about a week before the incident to remove the carcass as they had received a number of calls about a sow and two cubs being in the village. “We had been dealing with those grizzly bears in that area for about two weeks beforehand,” Knibbs said. “We were going door to door talking to people about their attractants and we talked to [Shirey] about the grizzly bears and he ultimately never dealt

with the carcass and the bears came.” Shirey was found guilty of: killing wildlife out of season, hunting wildlife with the use of a light, hunting during prohibited hours and discharging a firearm in a no-shooting area. He was fined $750 on each count. Shirey said he wasn’t doing anything unusual. “We usually hang them for a month outside our house,” he said. “This is the first time we’ve ever had grizzly problems like this.” It was dead fish in a freezer down the road from his home that brought the bears around and

he killed them because he was concerned for the safety of his neighbours, Shirey said. “I don’t think it’s right because I was just protecting the village,” he said. “Those bears were around way too long. They were here for three months and nothing ever got done with them. I was just keeping the village safe.” Chad Shirey and Burton Robinson were also found guilty of discharging a firearm in a noshooting area and hunting during prohibited hours for their roles in the incident. They were fined $575 each.

Woman in fear as man released Unions, gov’t make deal so he could leave the country By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - Prince Rupert RCMP are being accused of letting a potentially dangerous foreign national leave the country without so much as a slap on the wrist. While visiting family on Dec. 26, Laryssa Campbell said she was followed into the bathroom of the gaming centre by a crew member from a vessel moored in the harbour who verbally threatened her. “As I entered the bathroom I was alone. While washing my hands I looked up in the mirror to see the gentlemen I had passed on my way in standing behind me in the women’s bathroom,” said Campbell. “He came towards me so I ran as fast as I could to get security. They asked the gentleman to leave the premises,” she continued. “As he was leaving he was uttering threats to me in front of the security guards so they called the police,” Campbell explained. “Police took statements, they were aware of the threats to me and he was caught on camera following me into the women’s bathroom.” “The police officer asked me to come into the RCMP station to

give my video testimony the following day,” she said. But Campbell said when she arrived to give her statement for the camera, the officer told her the case was closed. “She said they would not go through with any charges and that the man was released from custody and got back on his ship and left the country,” she said. Campbell alleges the amount of paper work involved in dealing with foreign nationals was brought up in a discussion with police officers.. “A man from a different country ... assaulted me with video evidence, threatened my life in front of many orderlies and got off scott free ... that man should have been charged, not set free. He can now come back whenever he feels,” Campbell said. Chances security confirmed with The Northern View, the sister paper to The Northern Connector, that RCMP were called to the scene to remove a man who had followed a woman into the bathroom and was threatening her as he was being escorted off the premises. Const. Matt Ericson of the Prince Rupert RCMP said when officers arrived they did remove the individual, who spoke Greek and no English, but that was the extent of the situation.

“There was no evidence to support that an offence took place based on witness testimony and information we had received,” he said, noting the language barrier made it difficult to ascertain if threats were made or what the man’s intentions were and that entering the wrong bathroom is not a criminal offence. “The reason we didn’t put any kind of peace bond in place is that this person was leaving the next morning and there was no risk of a continuation of offence since he was no longer going to be in the country.” “There was no concern or fear for this woman’s safety based on that and that person left the next day,” he said. While RCMP say there is no cause for concern as the man immediately left Canada and the Canada Border Service Agency was notified, Campbell said that is simply not the case. “I do have fear. I fear for myself and fear for other women he may have harmed or will harm in the future. In a situation like this, customs and international affairs should have been involved,” she said. “The RCMP are trying to cover up their tracks regarding the situation. They know what happened and chose to do nothing about it.”

Port offering financial incentive to “green” vessels By Shaun Thomas

The Northern connector

been using the A to G rating, and port authority manager of corporate communications Michael Gurney expects the program to provide $100,000 in discounts throughout the course of the year. Port authority president and CEO Don Krusel said he hopes the steps taken by Prince Rupert and Vancouver will lead to more ports following suit. “Through an environmental incentive program with qualification standards consistent across global shipping, we are accelerating the industry’s Don Krusel movement toward greater efficiency and sustainability,” he said. “As more members of the worldwide port community launch similar initiatives, common systems of measurement and reward are vital to wide adoption and success.” So far the A to G rating system contains information on more than 70,000 existing vessels.

“We are accelerating the industry’s movement toward greater efficiency and sustainability.”

PRINCE RUPERT - The Prince Rupert Port Authority is offering financial incentives to environmentally friendly vessel calling on North Coast terminals. The port’s Green Wave program is one of the first programs of its kind in Canada, alongside Port Metro Vancouver’s Eco-Action program, and will offer discounts to ships based on the “A to G Green House Gas Emission rating”. The program, launched by RightShip and the Carbon War Room, enables charterers, owners and ports to instantly see a ship’s theoretical greenhouse gas emissions and relative energy efficiency compared to ships of similar size and type. Vessels are rated from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient). Of the 19 vessels calling on Prince Rupert in the first two weeks of the program 11 have

Lakelse Lake Community Wastewater Consultation Continues Online

Gift from an angel…

Launching February 7, 2014 The Regional District is testing new ways to share information and feedback on the Lakelse Lake Community Wastewater (Sewer) EA Project. Lakelse Lake is a regional amenity so feedback from all stakeholders is helpful. Open Houses, while informative for those able to attend, cannot connect stakeholders the way an instant 24/7 on-line tool can. Social media is a way to communicate with people separated by geographic distances. PlaceSpeak™ is a location-based web consultation tool the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine is trying as a way to reach out and “connect” our communities in order to get feedback and ideas. If you missed the Open Houses or just want to revisit the project information and interact with others, PlaceSpeak™ will provide an opportunity to access the same information presented in the December 2013 Open Houses at Prince Rupert and at Mt. Layton on the Lakelse Lake Community Sewer EA Project. PlaceSpeak™ is an alternative way to generate dialogue and feedback on the proposal for Lakelse Lake Community (Sewer) EA Project. The Discussion Forum invites participants to address the same questions posed in the Dialogue session in Prince Rupert. This is a chance to participate! To join the consultation go to the Regional District website at www.rdks.bc.ca and click on JOIN NOW on the PlaceSpeak link or enter www.placespeak.com/ RDKSconsultation into your browser.

Kitimat LNG awards major contract By Cameron Orr

The Northern connector

KITIMAT - It was recently announced the the Fluor Coporation and their joint venture with JGC was awarded an engineeing, procurement and construction contract by Chevron Canada for the proposed Kitimat LNG project. Chevron explains that the contract means Fluor will be responsible for utilities and offsite

facilities and JGC will be responsible for the liquefaction process facilities at the plant itself. Their scope will include completing the Front End Engineering and Design study (FEED), as well as project execution plans and costs and schedules for next phases of the proposed construction. Chevron says it’s a milestone towards a final investment decision. President of Fluor’s Ener-

gy and Chemicals Group Peter Oosterveer, said “Kitimat has the potential to become Canada’s first major LNG production and export terminal. Our strategic relationship with JGC was a key to winning this project and is certainly proving to be a differentiator in our markets.” Among the things still needed for Chevron include a competitive fiscal framework from the B.C. government.

Workers to live on cruise ship KITIMAT - RIO Tinto Alcan is going back to the early beginnings of its Kitimat aluminum smelter to find accommodation for workers hired to modernize the facility. It is leasing a converted ferry from the Baltic area to house hundreds of people as the $3.5 billion modernization project enters its stretch run with nine months until finishing. The move, announced this morning, is reminiscent of the Delta King, a ship used by Alcan in the early 1950s when it built its original smelter. In keeping with the historical record, Rio Tinto Alcan has dubbed this new floating accommodation the Delta Spirit Lodge. The vessel is expected to arrive in Kitimat near the end of February 2014. “It is planned that the “Delta Spirit Lodge” will reside at Terminal B (former Eurocan wharf) for the duration of the contract and will provide accommodation primarily to Kitimat Modernization Project people,” a Rio Tinto Alcan release said this morning.

The vessel is being provided through a company called Bridgemans Haisla LP. “The “Delta Spirit Lodge” will have a service staff of approximately 110 and will offer first rate amenities including 500 bedrooms, kitchen, dining and lounge facilities,” the Rio Tinto Alcan release said. “Rio Tinto Alcan and its Kitimat Modernization Project are exceptionally excited to have found an accommodation solution so unique during the year of the smelter’s 60th anniversary in Kitimat,” the release continued. Rio Tinto official Colleen Nyce said using a floating camp had always been an option. “We did not think that we would need it in addition to our construction village. However, there are now many more projects working in Kitimat then we first envisioned when our project was planned and approved,” she said. Rio Tinto Alcan hopes a floating camp alleviates concerns about finding accommodation elsewhere.

driver stopped to speak to a female walking at the side of the road, asked her if she was alright and wanted her to approach the truck. When a second vehicle stopped, the male in the Fedex truck departed. The driver was described as a non white male. Fedex advised that none of its vehicles were scheduled to be operating in the area. On January 18 RCMP responded to a rollover collision just east of Kitwanga on Hwy 16. The vehicle was westbound when it rounded a corner and struck black ice. The driver lost control and entered the ditch where the vehicle rolled onto its roof. The driver was not injured.

RICKY is a Pomeranian cross still needing to be neutered. He is between 2-3 years old. He is great with other dogs, big and small, and doesn’t mind cats either. He can be a little unsure of some men, but warms up quickly. He loves to go on walks or just hang out around the house. He would do best with older children, since young unpredictable kids make him nervous.

Pipeline VP says time a factor in LNG development

Encourage your child to start reading the newspaper today!

By Shaun Thomas The Northern connector

PRINCE RUPERT - TransCanada is following an aggressive timeline when it comes to the construction of its Prince Rupert Gas Transmission project, but company vice-president John Dunn said time is certainly of the essence. Growing demand in Asia, particularly in China, means an additional 22 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d) of LNG will be needed. While there may be approximately 10 projects proposed to deliver B.C. LNG to Asia to meet demand, competition is coming from developed sites along the Gulf of Mexico and proposals in countries like Australia. The project was announced in January, 2013, and Dunn said the goal is to have a final investment decision on the 900-kilometre pipeline to serve Pacific NorthWest LNG’s Lelu Island terminal by the end of this year. “The longer it takes to make a final investment decision [for an export terminal] in B.C., the less likely it is that B.C. will serve a market. Others will step forward to provide LNG. That is not something I say as a person in the industry, that is just the reality,” he said. “Wherever you are on the ideological spectrum, the reality is that Asia’s energy demands are going to be met. The question for B.C. is if we want to be a part of it and receive some of the benefit.” Despite the tight timeline, Dunn said there is still much work to be done before the application is submitted for an environmental assessment. “By January we had finalized the eastern and central parts of the route. What we will be finalizing in the next few months is the marine alternatives ... shortly we hope to land on one marine route for B.C. Environmental Assessment Office,” he said. “The EAO application will be approximately 10,000 pages, so you can imagine all of the work that goes into it. This costs hundreds of millions of dollars, so we are investing significantly already. Construction of the pipeline, which will utilize 48” piping, is expected to employ 5,000 people over a four-year period. But Dunn made no illusions of many jobs following the burying of the pipe. “Natural gas pipelines, once built, neither do they impose a burden on the landscape because the are buried ... nor do they create a lot of long term employment,” he said, noting the pipeline will be built by simultaneously by different companies in different parts of the province. “The reality is it doesn’t take a lot to maintain it.”

Kitimat council discusses options for Mountain Co-Op By Cameron Orr

The Northern connector

KITIMAT - As councillors were asked whether to approve another $15,000 grant to the My Mountain Co-Op for Shames Mountain’s ski hill, Phil Germuth had another idea. Instead of moving to grant the $15,000, he suggested the council hold that money aside, and instead have staff bring a report back on the feasibility of using that money to instead provide a bus for Kitimat residents to the ski hill. “In the spirit of continuing to

support this regional asset, I feel this is a way we can have a real benefit to both the My Mountain Co-Op and to the people of Kitimat whose taxpayer money we’ve been using to help benefit this area,” he said. He said preliminary talks with a local bus operator shows that a 48 person bus would cost approximately $1,000 a day. That would mean the District could fun 15 days worth of transportation. But giving people access to the ski hill could potentially generate $18,000 of revenue for the ski hill, he argued.

“Of course that’s just getting them up there, for the lift ticket,” he said, saying money would be raised through rentals and food and other items. “I think this is something we could at least look at for the future ski season,” he said. Corinne Scott supported the motion, saying the ski hill benefits everyone in the region and believing such a program would continue to provide a benefit back to the coop. Mary Murphy meanwhile said it might be premature, since the co-

op members were already looking into the feasibility of a bus service from the Rio Tinto Alcan workers camp on Sundays to bring workers to the mountain. “I think they’re looking for $15,000 not for us to tell them how to spend it but for them to have those funds to spend in order to get their operations going,” she said. Mario Feldhoff was also opposed. “It just keeps coming back over and over and over again that people for one reason or another don’t like the idea of My Mountain Co-

“Our contribution of $15,000 is a small contribution for the benefit of all citizens of Kitimat.” Mario Feldhoff Op,” he said. “Our contribution of $15,000 is a small contribution for the benefits of all citizens of Kitimat.” The motion passed, with Feldhoff, Murphy and Goffinet opposed.

Mining Week is the time to release key figures VANCOUVER - Premier Christy Clark has proclaimed Jan. 26 to Feb. 1, 2014, Mineral Exploration Week, a time to reflect on the strength and impact one of the province’s key resource industries has on everyday life. With that in mind, here are some key mining industry facts. * The production value of mining in 2012 was $8.3 billion. In 2001, it was $2.8 billion. * Today B.C. has 19 operating mines (nine coal and 10 metal). In 2001, there were 15 operating mines (seven coal and eight metal). * B.C.’s mining industry and related minerals sectors employed over 30,000 people in 2012. In 2001, the industry employed 14,700 people. * In 2012, the average mining salary (with benefits) was $121,000. In 2001, the average was $81,000.

* BC mining flow-through share tax credit will be extended, subject to the final approval of the legislature in spring 2014. * B.C is the first province in Canada to share direct revenue generated from mining with First Nations. Three agreements have been reached and a number are under negotiation. * New Afton mine, near Kamloops, started production in June 2012, and Mt Milligan mine, near Prince George, started production in August 2013. * The British Columbia Geological Survey has supported the mineral exploration industry for more than 100 years. It acts as the provincial custodian of all geoscience data, providing maps and other information, delivered via MapPlace, an award-winning Internet display tool.

“ The Joint Review Panel’s recommendation is an important step toward building a better pipeline.”

My name is Janet Holder and I am the leader of the Northern Gateway Project. This past December, my team came one step closer towards our goal of building a better pipeline. After weighing the evidence in the most comprehensive, scientific review in Canadian pipeline history, the Joint Review Panel of the National Energy Board and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency provided its recommendation.

From the beginning, Northern Gateway has committed to building a safer and better pipeline. The Panel’s conditions are an important step towards that goal. They reflect the input of thousands of British Columbians and Canadians, and include many of the commitments we made in our submission. But our work is far from done. As a proud British Columbian, I assure you that my team will continue to work hard towards meeting all of the final conditions set out by the Joint Review Panel, just as we’re working hard to meet the Province’s tough conditions. Building a better pipeline isn’t easy. It takes hard work and complete dedication to meeting the highest standards possible. The Joint Review Panel’s recommendation is an important step toward building a better pipeline.

Sincerely,

Janet Holder Leader of Northern Gateway

The Panel concluded that Canada and Canadians would be better off with the Northern Gateway Project than without it. They also provided 209 conditions we must meet before we build the project or before we start operations.

The Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce is selling its building to the City of Terrace after the city bought the land upon which it sits from the provincial government.

Terrace chamber on the move By Josh Massey

The Northern connector

TERRACE - City council Jan. 27 gave its final approval to a bylaw allowing the city to borrow just over $177,000, finalizing a deal struck last summer to buy the land upon which the Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce building now sits from the provincial government. The city is also in the process of buying, for $85,000, the chamber’s timber structure which is on the property located near the Keith Ave./Hwy16 entrance to the Real Canadian Wholesale Club. Chamber executive director Carol Fielding said the purchase of the land and the building means the chamber is moving its office which she says will be beneficial but not something the chamber had originally planned. The original plan, said Fielding, was for the chamber to pur-

chase the land from the province which it had been leasing for $1 a year. That plan, however, stalled when the province, as part of a larger effort to sell land around the province it considered surplus, put the property on the market. And the challenge the Chamber then faced was that the province gave the city the first crack at buying the land. Fielding says the Chamber was caught off guard by the city also wanting to purchase the property and had not at first realized the city would be given the first purchase opportunity. “The city of Terrace bought the land in June 2013. Last summer, we got the notice that they had bought the land and then they wanted to buy the building from us,” said Fielding. She said the Chamber had benefitted from the $1 a year land lease deal from the province but that it could not afford the city’s

Education is key By Bill Phillips

The Northern connector

PRINCE GEORGE - It’s no secret that First Nations youth often have a tougher time getting through high school. That results in a tougher time getting into a good career. The solution, says Laurie Sterritt, President and CEO of the B.C. Aboriginal Mining Training Association, lies in the education system. “An effective approach has been to focus on developing individualized education plans,” she told about 300 delegates at the Premier’s B.C. Natural Resources Forum Wednesday. “The traditional approach in the education system says that everyone should be treated equally. (Our) experience it totally the opposite of this … Individual education plans are a must-have, not a nice-to-have.” The approach is working for the B.C. Aboriginal Mining Training Association, which is tasked with getting aboriginals into the mining industry. “We do our best to get rid of the things that hold people back,” Sterritt said. The association has, in four years, helped 650 First Nations people secure employment. The average wage of those they have helped is about $53,000 per year,

new proposed lease payments. That helped the Chamber make its decision to sell its building and move on, said Fielding. Had the Chamber stayed in the building after the city purchased it, it would no longer receive rent from Kermode Tourism which occupies the building’s ground floor, she added. Fielding now says the chamber, after 30 years at the old location, is looking forward to moving downtown. It has taken office space on Lazelle Ave. above Speedee Printers. The space also has a conference room. Kermode Tourism is expected to stay in the building – it occupies the first floor and uses the space in the summer as a tourist information centre. There are, however, not immediate details released as to what the city will do with the other space in the building.

Court rejects class size law again By Tom Fletcher THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

VICTORIA - The B.C. Supreme Court has rejected the provincial government’s effort to keep class size and special needs support off the bargaining table with teachers, and ordered the government to pay $2 million in damages to the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. In a ruling released Monday, Justice Susan Griffin said the B.C. government’s replacement legislation, passed in 2011, is as unconstitutional as the 2002 law called Bill 28 that removed class size and special needs support from union working conditions. “The court concluded that the government did not negotiate in good faith with the union after the Bill 28 decision,” Griffin wrote. “One of the problems was that the government representatives were preoccupied with another strategy. Their strategy was to put such pressure on the union that it would provoke a strike by the union. The

government representatives thought this would give government the opportunity to gain political support for imposing legislation on the union.” The ruling strikes down the portions of the new legislation that have not already expired. BCTF president Jim Iker said the ruling returns contract language that was in place in 2002, and he expects that the province’s 60 school districts will have to rehire teachers and special needs assistants to reduce class size. He said there were 1,200 education specialists affected by the 2002 legislation, including teacher-librarians and counsellors. “It’s good for us, it’s good for public education, it’s good for British Columbia and for our stu-

dents,” Iker said of Monday’s ruling. Education Minister Peter Fassbender said he is “disappointed” by the ruling, and ministry staff will study it before deciding on a possible appeal. Fassbender said Jim Iker he disagrees with the judge’s conclusion that the government tried to provoke a strike, and his focus is on reaching a new agreement. “What we need to do is to review the judge’s ruling in detail to see what the implications are, but clearly my message to school districts, to parents, is it’s business as usual in our schools,” Fassbender said. NDP education critic Rob Fleming called the ruling “real blow to the B.C. Liberals’ credibility,” adding it traces back to Premier Christy Clark’s time as education minister in 2002.

A Letter From Heaven,

When tomorrow starts without me, and I am not here to see, if the sun should rise and find your eyes, filled with tears of me. I wish so much you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cry, the way you did today, while thinking of the many things, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to say. I know how much you love me, as much as I love you, and each time you think of me, I know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss me too. When tomorrow starts without me, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re far apart, for every time you think of me, I am right there in your heart.

Inside Rampage take game one vs. River Kings By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - The Prince Rupert Rampage put the Central Interior Hockey League Western Conference leading Terrace River Kings on the brink of elimination from the playoffs on Saturday night, but it wasn’t a win that came easy for the team. The two teams took to the ice for game one of the best-ofthree conference semifinal series in front of a packed house who got to witness playoff hockey at its finest. The game got underway with a bit of a goaltender battle as Warren Hanson of the Rampage and Garrett Muir of the River Kings turned away everything that came their way in the early going. It was the home team that struck first, to the delight of the crowd, as Jordan Weir found the back of the net with 7:18 to play to give Prince Rupert the one goal lead, with assists to Devin Palmer and Greg Sheppard. That would be all the offence in the period as the Rampage took a 1-0 lead into the second frame. The River Kings came out fighting to pull even in the second and that pressure paid off when Nick Homeniuk finally found a way to beat Hanson with 14:05 to play to draw the game even. Despite several chances on both ends, Hanson and Muir stood their ground and the period ended deadlocked at one to ensure an exciting finish for the estimated 800 fans in attendance. The Rampage quickly brought the fans to their feet in

the third as Mike Coolin beat Muir less than three minutes into the period, with assists to Palmer and Marcus Atchison. Late in the period, the River Kings drew things even again when Homeniuk netted his second of the game with 6:27 on the clock. While it looked like overtime was coming, penalties would prove to be costly for the Kings. The team was assessed a delay of game penalty and Jeremy Vandenbroeck was given a matching game misconduct with 2:10 on the clock to give the Rampage a five-on-three in the dying minutes. With just 45 seconds left to play, Palmer would fire one past Muir for his third point of the night and the Rampage celebrated a 3-2 victory. The series will now shift to Terrace this weekend for game two on Saturday night and, if needed, game three on Sunday afternoon. Look for results from those games in next week’s issue of The Northern View. The River Kings weren’t the only higher-seeded team to taste defeat over the weekend. The other Western Conference playoff game saw the Smithers Steelheads down the Kitimat Ice Demons 6-4 in a game that went into the early morning hours after the start was delayed due to the closure of Hwy 16. In the Eastern Conference, the Houston Luckies upset the Quesnel Kangaroos 4-3 while the top-seeded Williams Lake Stampeders survived a scare as they barely beat the Lac La Hache Tomahawks 4-3.

The Charles Hays Rainmakers celebrate their Coast Clash victory.

Rainmakers win tourney By Shaun Thomas

THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - The Charles Hays Secondary School (CHSS) junior boys basketball team hosted the 13th Annual Coastal Clash Tournament on Jan. 24-25, with the squad splitting into two teams to face off against five other high schools from around the region. Both Charles Hays team 1, consisting of the whole team, and Charles Hays 2, made up of third string players, played three games apiece. Charles Hays 1 beat out Queen Charlotte Secondary School (QCSS) to become tournament champions with Charles Hays 2 losing against Caledonia Senior Secondary for a spot in the semi-final game.

“I am extremely proud of all my players this weekend. They showed a lot of growth, played a total team game and finished really well. Their intensity was really cranked up and their focus was the best I have seen from them all year. I’m really excited to see how much more they can improve over the next few weeks heading into the post season,” junior boys basketball coach Kevin Sawka said. In the final game Charles Hays 1 met up with QCSS after destroying Smithers 91-6 in their first game, and beating out Coast Tsimshian Academy 42-35 in their second. Queen Charlotte had won their games against Charles Hays 2 71-39, against Caledonia 51-31 and against Hazelton 52-38. Halfway through the last game

Charles Hays 1 was up by 10 points and went on to more than double their lead by the end of the game. In the end, CHSS took possession of the Coastal Clash Grotto Cup after winning the final 65-31 over QCSS. Charles Hays 2 weren’t as lucky in their Coastal Clash run, losing their first game against Queen Charlotte, falling 61-26 against Hazelton and losing 56-37 in their last game against Caledonia. CHSS’ George Mason was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player, with teammates Dominic Irvine, Caledonia’s Gabriel Johnson, Kaine Wesley from Coast Tsimshian Academy and Queen Charlotte Secondary School’s Jaylund Russ being named to the Coastal Clash Tournament all-star team.

Shames’ young skiers turn out for mini-ripper fun race Contributed THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

TERRACE - The Shames Mountain Ski and Snowboard Club (SMSSC) hosted a fun race weekend January 18 and 19, open to skiers and snowboarders 10 and under. And 54 skiers came up to Shames Mountain to participate over the two days of racing, competing on a mini dual-slalom course. The purpose was to race down in random order around gates without missing a turn with the fastest time possible. Most of the competitors had never participated in this type of event, so it was a fun way for athletes and volunteers to learn what it takes to compete in and run a miniature version of this type of competition. The fastest of two runs was officially counted, however, kids continued to race until the end of the day, trying to improve their times or to have races against friends, siblings, and cousins. There were some hard-core competitors on the slopes, including the two youngest competitors,

two four-year-old girls who couldn’t wait for another run, and instead of riding the chairlift, hiked up the course several times to get another go at it. There was a slightly different course from Saturday to Sunday, with the sunny day and firmer snow on Sunday resulting in much faster times for all competitors. The fastest score in the whole competition was on Sunday by nine-year-old Lucas Schibli with a time of 14.75 seconds, but the girls in the 7-10 category had the next top five fastest times – and represented the largest number of competitors – making for very stiff competition. Some of the times were only 10ths of a second apart. Schibli took home the gold both days in his division with Camryn Reiter and Thayna Healey also landing on the podium both days. Medals were give out at the end of each day, and all competitors received a cookie medal for participating. Although no snowboarders came out to race, the club hopes to see some next month when they hold another fun race weekend on February 15 and 16 for young skiers and snowboarders.

katchewan already debating what they’re going to call the team.” • Rangers pitcher Derek Holland, to The Dallas Morning News, after tearing knee cartilage when his dog tripped him: “I yelled at him, but I didn’t put him on waivers.” • Comedy writer Alex Kaseberg: “On ‘60 Minutes’, the guy who supplied Alex Rodriguez with drugs, Anthony Bosch, said he used to inject A-Rod in the butt because A-Rod was scared of needles; if A-Rod isn’t careful, this whole thing could make him look stupid.”

• Seattle Times reporter Danny Westneat, when asked by a San Francisco columnist if the noise at Century Link Park is ‘enhanced’: “The crowd noise up here is enhanced. What we have done is record all the Harbaugh squawking, the Kaepernick pouting and the 49er fan whining from throughout the season, then we pipe it back through CenturyLink’s speakers at top volume during the game.” • Janice Hough of leftcoastsportsbabe. com, on the USADA saying A-Rod’s performance-enhancing drug

Seabridge Gold is proposing to build the KSM Project, a copper-gold-silver-molybdenum mine, approximately 65 kilometers north of Stewart, BC. You often hear about the KSM Project in terms of the Environmental Assessment process or their mining exploration program. Seabridge doesn’t talk as much about the people who make the KSM Project possible, but they are a highly-skilled and interesting group. Like any mining company, Seabridge has a head office. Their office is located in Toronto, ON where 10 people work, including President, Jay Layman and CEO, Rudi Fronk, who’ve both contributed to these columns in this newspaper in the past. Brent Murphy, Vice President of Environmental Affairs, is someone you will see in the community. He is responsible for the company’s environmental programs and represents Seabridge in its communication with Government and Treaty and First Nations who have an acknowledged interest in the Company’s projects. Brent has worked in the mining industry for 25 years, the majority of which have been spent in Northern Canada. You may be familiar with the KSM Project office in Smithers and you are probably most familiar with the three women who work in that office: Elizabeth Miller, Environmental Affairs Manager; Jessy Chaplin, Permitting Specialist; and Taryn Cutler, Administrative Officer. This community office is open to anyone who wants to learn more about the KSM Project. Taryn, Elizabeth or Jessy will always welcome you and have time to answer your questions. Seabridge wants to ensure everyone has the opportunity to ask questions about the KSM Project

near where they live and recently announced their office opening in Dease Lake. Patricia (Pat) McIntosh, Communications Officer, is Seabridge’s newest employee and is ready to welcome people to the Dease Lake office. A discussion about all of the people behind the KSM Project wouldn’t be complete without mention of the anywhere from 20-45 people, a mix of employees and contractors, who work in the Seabridge camp each year from May to October. This camp is the base from which Seabridge conducts its onsite exploration, geotechnical, engineering and environmental work. The company expects a decision on the environmental approvals for the project in 2014, and when it’s approved, will ultimately hire 1,800 people during its five-year construction period and 1,000 people per year over the 52-year mine life, once a construction decision is finalized. Stay tuned for more KSM Project updates through 2014.

The wedding went on, albeit with TVs at the reception, and no doubt guests checking their phones during the ceremony.

They don’t work in October.” • Greg Cote again: “Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw signed a new deal making him baseball’s first $30 million-a-year player. ‘Man.
