People needed for emergency shelter Cameron Orr For at least one day the Emergency Cold Weather Shelter in Kitimat couldn’t open because of a lack of volunteers. In the midst of an arctic outflow warning, that could prove dangerous for those without a place to go. To make sure the shelter, located at the Public Safety Building at the corner of Kingfisher and Haisla Boulevard, keeps going the volunteers through the Kitimat Housing Committee are looking for a larger bank of volunteers. Trish Parsons, with the housing committee, says that the challenge is finding people to do the overnight shifts since many of their existing volunteers have jobs during the day. An overnight shift followed by a job in the morning is hard on people, she realizes. “When you don’t have lots of volunteers you can burn out quickly,” she said. As of right now they have a list of approximately 15 people. “We’re still trying to find volunteers to keep it open because the weather has been so bad,” she said. The shelter was activated on the February 1 weekend, but was closed on February 3 due to lack of available volunteers that day, but it was re-actived on February 4. The shelter is available to those who need it from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. days it is active. If you want to volunteer — Parsons said people can offer just to do as little as one shift per month — they can either call her at her work at the Chamber of Commerce at 250-632-6294, or call Warren Waycheshen at the District of Kitimat at 250-632-8900. Meanwhile Waycheshen says the shelter has had to be activated seven times so far since its inception. On January 31 it was used by three people, and it was used by one person on each February 1 and February 2. The shelter was made possible in part by a $15,000 grant from BC Housing. Last week as the cold weather continued the shelter continued to be open leading into the long weekend. As of press time today’s forecast was for -10C as a low. The weekend itself was expected to dip as much as -15C. Tomorrow’s low dips to -7C, comparatively warm compared to the rest of the week.

“When you don’t have lots of volunteers you can burn out quickly.”

Supporters of the Kitimat Rotary Club were seeing red, and white (and even some scotch) at the Rotary Club’s Wine Tasting Festival at the Riverlodge on February 1. The sold out event was a fundraiser for the local club. That’s Rotarian Edwin Empinado pouring a red wine sample.

Action being taken on Radley Park $800,000 to fix up both of Kitimat’s municipal campgrounds Cameron Orr Councillors have approved the expenditure of $800,000 out of the Radley Park reserve fund to upgrade the municipal park, as well as put work into Hirsch Creek Park. The $800,000 has sat in a reserve fund since 2012 for riverbank armouring but trouble with Radley Park’s septic system has put extra impetus on the staff to see other work get done at the park. From that $800,000, $150,000 will be for installing either a new lift station or septic field to replace the current failed system, $200,000 to install a new road along the dike to make more room in the park for campsites. Staff also plans to spend $170,000 to construct new showers and washroom area. Relatively smaller costs include $80,000 for installing 10 new campsites with electrical hook-ups, convert eight

existing sites to electrical, and install a wheelchair accessible trail at Hirsch Creek Park. Radley Park in particular has had a long history of studies and lots of options for spending over the past several years. Staff’s report to council pointed to a hydraulic consultants report from 2007 on the Kitimat River’s migration, then in 2011 consultants were hired to prepare “conceptual ideas for the retrofit of Radley Park,” followed by a follow-up review on the river’s migration in 2012, and then a survey was done of the park in 2013. Kitimat had contemplated armouring the riverbank at Radley Park to fight erosion but concerns from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and the Haisla deterred the town from pursuing that route, but log jams on the river were removed, which did reduce the flow of

the river past the park. The report also notes that since 2005, 15 campsites at Radley have been lost due to erosion. None have been lost in the last two years though. Councillor Corinne Scott did note that the money being spent with the preapproval does not include any erosion protection, which is what the original money was set aside for. She wasn’t against the work being done but she did have issue with preapproval and was not convinced such action was needed. “I do understand there is a project that needs to get a request for proposal out…but I’m not convinced that $800,000 has to be pre-approved out of our budget,” she said. All councillors save for Scott voted in favour of allowing the pre-approval of the money.

Car breaks loose from tow truck, hits another vehicle January 27 An intoxicated male was reported to the RCMP near 2 p.m. Callers said the person was passed out on the third floor landing of an apartment building on Albatross Avenue, and was in the way of workers doing renovations. Police say the individual had no fixed address and could not be taken somewhere where a person could care for him so he was taken to the RCMP holding cells to sober up. He was released

Police Beat once sober and issued a violation ticket. January 28 Police had to track down an abandoned 9-1-1 call when attempts to call the number back failed. Tracking the GPS coordinates for the phone police determined the caller was likely at the Rio Tinto Alcan smelter area.

Police later learned the caller had been calling 9-1-1 to report a fire at the KMP camp but was then evacuated. (We asked RTA for details regarding this fire and spokesperson Colleen Nyce explained the incident was actually a false alarm. A duct detector triggered the alarm, and emergency protocols were still followed, which included an evacuation of residents at the construction village.

the airport’s services. Short-term priorities include improvements to the terminal building – more space at the check-in counters and pre-boarding waiting area, expanded security and baggage holding – public parking lots, and development to the main apron to provide space for larger aircraft. Long-term priorities include lighting and electrical upgrades, the development of an airport fire station, restaurant and office expansion, development of Canadian Border Services Agency facilities

In the air A construction company already in partnership with the Haisla First Nation is expanding that relationship. Ledcor Industries announced last week that its Summit Aviation Group subsidiary and the Haisla have formed Summit Kitimaat Aviation Limited Partnership to provide aviation services within the Haisla Traditional Territory. Summit, which flies helicopters and fixed wing aircraft, set up a base at the Northwest Regional Airport in Terrace last year in response to the growing demand for air services tied to work being done on potential natural gas pipelines, liquefied natural gas plants and other projects. “We are honoured to be selected as their partner and look forward to helping foster economic development within the Haisla Nation,” stated Summit President Rob Mauracher. Summit operates a fleet of helicopters and fixed wing aircraft based in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories in addition to its equipment in Terrace. “We are extremely proud of this new partnership in the aviation space, and see a great future with Summit and its senior leadership team in the Kitimat region,” commented Henry Amos, Chairman of the Haisla Economic Development Committee.

New poll out on pipeline Cameron Orr A poll by Justason Market Intelligence indicates that opposition to the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipelines proposal remains strong. The company used telephone and online methods to reach 600 B.C. adults. The poll was sponsored by Dogwood Initiative, ForestEthics Advocacy, Northwest Institute for Bioregional Research and West Coast Environmental Law. On awareness of the project, the poll found 92 per cent of respondents knew of the proposal. The poll, which was conducted between January 13 to 19, finds that awareness of the project has grown since March 2012, from 78 per cent then to the 92 per cent today. Opposition, whether strongly or somewhat, peaks at 64 per cent, against 29 per cent in support and seven per cent unsure. To get those results, the company asked the following question: Up until now, crude oil supertankers have not entered B.C.’s inside passage because of concerns about oil spills. The federal government is now

considering allowing crude oil supertankers through these waters. Do you support or oppose allowing crude oil supertankers through B.C.’s northern inside coastal waters? Is that strongly or somewhat? The company also tracked the changes in time to that question. It found opposition in March 2012 at 66 per cent, and opposition peaked in October 2012. Support meanwhile, while not strong compared to opposition, actually grew. In March 2012 support stood at 22 per cent, while today it’s 29 per cent. Meanwhile the poll also asked about trust in the review process, and found 51 per cent distrusted the Joint Review Panel which reviewed the Enbridge proposal. That said, 49 per cent of people said they’d be more sup-

portive of the project if Premier Christy Clark’s five conditions for oil pipelines and tankers in B.C. are met. Twenty-six per cent of respondents said they’d be more opposed if they were met, the same amount said they didn’t know or neither. Although opposition in the poll to the project is high, that hasn’t stopped people from seemingly believing it will happen. Sixty-four per cent of respondents said they believed Enbridge will be successful in building its Northern Gateway project. Just 12 per cent don’t believe that. Barb Justason, who heads Justason Market Intelligence, said the objective was to gather information about people’s opinions when you put the pipeline and the tanker traffic component together.

Money well spent Following through from money set aside in 2012, Kitimat Council has authorized the go ahead for the town’s recreation department to spend $800,000 to improve Radley Park and Hirsch Creek. In 2012, right before I arrived here, the Sentinel ran a story about $800,000 being set aside for Radley Park to Leisure Services. It’s clearly taken a couple of years but I’m happy to see some spending happening on the parks. For some extra background, in 2008 the Council of the time set aside $475,000 to work on the park but when they received a report from Northwest Hydraulic Consultants they opted to go with the company’s final option, which was essentially to do nothing. Staff say in their report to council this year that while 15 campsites have been lost to erosion at Radley Park since 2005, they’ve had two years of no losses, which is credited to the Kitimat River straightening out. Councillors this year were prudent in asking for a report about the Radley and Hirsch Creek from Leisure Services after administration had requested pre-approval for the work two months ago. Council was understandably skeptical that they had to give pre-approval — which essentially guarantees money for projects ahead of the 2014 budget being officially adopted, even though council has accepted a budget. (The budget gets finalized in the spring.) $800,000 is a big number but staff’s report sheds some light on the money. And most importantly it highlights to me that it’s not really a new $800,000. Council had made that available in their budget in 2012, we’re just now getting around to spending it. And it’s hard to argue that Radley Park and Hirsch Creek are not worthwhile projects for the town. Radley Park in particular, being the town’s only real active municipal campground, is a pivotal piece to the community’s tourism scene. It’s of course a decent time to be promoting our tourism to the world again since Kitimat is getting a lot of attention, may as well capitalize on that. Fixing up our campgrounds, adding new campsites and the crucial task of fixing the sewer situation at Radley Park is money well spent. The only thing I hope to see after the work is complete is continual monitoring of the river to make sure erosion can be managed in the future. (Which the town may be doing, it just wasn’t in this particular report.) Even if it took two years to spend it, I’m happy to see our parks getting some needed TLC. Cameron Orr

Penny for your thoughts in a centsless world There are numerous old sayings about the penny: a penny saved is a penny earned; See a penny, pick it up, all that day you’ll have good luck; penny wise, pound foolish. I recall February, 2013, when the Canadian Mint stopped producing one cent coins and began phasing out our lowest value coin. It followed years of hot debate. Consumers were assured that in all cash transactions, the new rounding up and rounding down process would work out in their favour. Recently, I made five small cash purchases, three under $10 and two under $5. All of them featured “rounding up” by two cents thus I was out 10 cents. Right? Curious, I tapped up the calculator on my amazing new smart phone (my latest self-imposed, immensely-frustrating learning curve). Then I spread one of my crumpled Overwaitea cash receipts, for a purchase of a container of coffee creamer, an essential in my house, and a roll of one of my many weaknesses, wine gums. The bill was $3.19 for the cream and $1.19 for the gums. But the candy was on sale at 99 cents, if an Overwaitea Save on More rewards card was used. That reduced the gums to 99 cents and Overwaitea informed me my savings on the purchase was 20 cents. Does this mean I didn’t really lose

my 10 cents that day and actually made 10 cents? Total purchase before tax was $4.18. Even without GST, I’d still have seen the bill rounded up two cents with GST of 5 cents, it went up to $4.23 and was rounded up to $4.25. A five dollar bill returned me 75 cents in change. Now I know my two cents won’t buy Jim Pattison a new corporate jet or make a difference to the bottom line. But I was curious about the cumulative effect of many buyers in the same circumstances. I figured (with the calculator) that if 100 customers saw two cents rounded up bills at the store in Kitimat that day, the cash benefit was a total of 200 cents, $2 in rounded up bucks. (I want to emphasize I’m lousy with a calculator, so at some point I expect someone better to challenge some of the numbers that I drummed up.) But, I opined, if that small purchase happens every day of the week, with a base of 100 mixed buyers in Kitimat,

the bottom line goes up to roughly $420 a week or $1,680 a month. Annually that comes to $20,160 for these 100 customers. I randomly multiplied that number to 100 customers in 200 big stores in the province and I saw the dollar numbers rise to $4,032,000 annually. Now that’s a number that opens my eyes wider, and not chicken feed. Then I upped the odds by expanding the numbers to two cents a day per 100 consumers daily, seven days a week, 12 months a year in a total of five large retailers with 200 similar stores each in B.C., (say Overwaitea, Super Valu, Shoppers Drugs, Walmart and Safeway, locally) and I got (oh, I’m so bad at math, even with a calculator!) $20,160,000 in unearned pennies? Now, that’s a good number, even based on the fact that the “unearned” rounded up portion on any bill whether it is $4.23 or $500.98, still is just two cents. However I then added another 300 big retailers for a 100 cash customers daily at a total of 500 in B.C. More startlingly, the figure rose to more like $50 million, give or take. And, remember we are only talking about 100 customers a day based on a single rounded-up purchase, but in 500 big stores. So in a thousand stores it would be $100 million, no? Continued on page 5

There is simplicity to be found in the Bible 1 John 5:11: “And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life. And this life is in His Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son does not have life.” We humans like to take something simple and make it complicated. Yogi Berra, the hall of fame manager for the New York Yankees was famous for making muddled quotes. He once said, “Baseball is 90 per cent mental and the other half is physical.” Some people think that the Bible is complicated. Many assume

message of the Bible is very simple. You see, when man fell into sin by disobeying God in the Garden of Eden, God pronounced the judgment of death.

that you need to be a theologian to figure it out. Well, if that is your experience, then I am here to tell you today that the message of the Bible is so simple and uncomplicated that even a child can understand it. In fact, the whole message of the Bible is written in a children’s song. It goes like this; “Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so. Little ones

to Him belong, they are weak but He is strong. Yes Jesus loves me, yes Jesus loves me, yes Jesus loves me, the Bible tells me so.” And then the second verse, “Jesus loves me He who died, Heavens gates to open wide. He will take away my sin, let’s His little child come in. Yes Jesus loves me, yes Jesus loves me, yes Jesus loves me, the Bible tells me so.” There, now you are all theologians. The

Continued from page 4 I then expanded the same quickie calculation to 500 similar large retailers, say in Alberta (where there’s no provincial tax but rounding up is still government policy) and the numbers are much more welcoming —over $200-million.

as the Royal Canadian Mint suggests, on its website discussing rounding out. Where does all that money go? Likely to corporate bottom lines. Sure, there are some rounding down numbers. But remember, I had one in a total of five small cash purchases. So maybe I benefited by two cents and lost only 18 cents in four of five. That’s represents about 20 per

cent of the time but it still seems reasonable that a lot more than 100 people make a small cash purchase with rounding up applied in a major stores each day, especially in bigger cities so imagine where these numbers could go Canada wide. My calculator and math skills are not up to it. But other sayings: “lies, damn lies and statistics” and “figures don’t lie, but liars figure.”

Jobs must be on the table Dear Sir, Many B.C. residents have submitted concerns about the Northern Gateway pipeline. Most were opposed on principle, but that, Enbridge says, is changing. This is my response to the Enbridge rhetoric. It’s my understanding that many of those 3,000 construction jobs would go to offshore workers, as Canada is ill-prepared to take advantage of these skilled trades jobs. It is great that native Canadians would be employed for a short term on pipeline construction — then what? We need long-term, value-added jobs from our resources. So the pipeline would create about 560 long-term jobs. In the Comox Valley, more than 560 good

BCCLA file complaints over illegal spying The BC Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) has filed complaints against both the RCMP and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) which allege the agencies illegally spied on peaceful activities of opponents to the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline project.

In a release sent out last week, the BCCLA say the agencies’ alleged actions “interfered with the freedom of expression, assembly and association protected by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms by gathering intelligence about citizens opposed to the Enbridge project through

BCCLA, in a release. “This is bigger than an environmental debate - it’s a question of fundamental human rights. There are plenty of undemocratic countries where governments spy on people that they don’t agree with. That’s not supposed to happen in Canada, and when it

Airport plan Continued from page 2 Those forecasts show that strong demand will continue in the short-term – last year, the airport saw 177,600 passengers, a 28 per cent increase from 2012 – and surpass 250,000 passengers in the next five years. That forecast is built on current and anticipated development of industrial projects. The forecast in the guide will “give the airport something to track against, act as a guideline,” Lammie said, while not completely tying the airport’s hands to development needs that may shift in the coming years. That’s because the plan is intended to be a “living document” – a touchstone for future development at the airport consistent with the needs of the community, but regularly updated and flexible enough to allow changes depending on what does, or doesn’t, happen in the region going into the future. The airport should see flexibility with its plans for commercial expansion east of the terminal to the existing lots on Bristol Road, providing space for private operations and fixed base operators. For example, a company that is regularly flying out workers to an operations camp could lease a building and use that as a base – providing their own security and operations staff – while their project is underway, easing some of the strain on the main terminal.

Correction

The airport would still receive the passenger fee, but costs would be lower, and once the project is over and the lease is up, the airport can rent to someone else or develop it into

something new – the terminal grows to support local demand, and the commercial area grows to support industry. And with the economic growth in the

Two Canadian artists, one Kitimat stage Submitted Once again The Kitimat Concert Association is bringing incredible talent to town. Canadian crooner, Jesse Peters teams up with Canadian fiddler Lizzy Hoyt. These consummate Canadian performers will bring you an evening of toe tapping swing and the best of traditional folk. In the world of jazz, there are two types of performers: those who play for themselves, and those who play for their audience. Jesse is definitely the latter. With his soul bared at each and every performance, his musical sincerity draws in anyone willing to let go and come along for the ride. Textures that honour Jesse’s

great jazz and soul influences are fused into the modern sound he creates, and recreates, every time he sits in front of a piano and microphone. He has garnered rave reviews as a singer and songwriter from distinguished jazz artists Ingrid Jensen and Diana Krall. By the age of 21 his group, The Peters Drury Trio, had released two acclaimed jazz recordings, distributed in Canada, the United States and Hong Kong. Lizzy Hoyt is an awardwinning Canadian vocalist and songwriter who also happens to rank among the top Celtic instrumentalists in the country. With the voice of an angel, Lizzy delivers music and stories

with soaring melodies rooted in Celtic and folk traditions. Her music has been recognized on both the national and international level. She won “Best Female Artist” at the eighth International Acoustic Music Awards, was a Canadian Folk Music Award Nominee for “Traditional Singer of the Year” and has been named a finalist in both the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the USA Songwriting Competition. Two excellent Canadian artists on one Kitimat stage at the same time. Mark your calendars for February 15 at 8:00 p.m. in the Mount Elizabeth Theatre. Tickets are available at Katii’s Knook in the mall or at the door.

Do you know of a minor hockey team who deserves to attend the 2014 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic, Sunday, March 2 in Vancouver? Anyone can enter on behalf of their favourite BC minor hockey team.

Police Beat Continued from page 2 January 31 At 5 a.m. police were called to the RBC bank, and found a man laying in the ATM vestibule. The male was reportedly very intoxicated but was found to have injuries. The person alleged he was assaulted but could not say why he thought that. The attending officer believes the injuries are more in line with a fall rather than a fight. The person was transported to the hospital. February 1 Officers conducted a bar walk at a local business shortly before 3 a.m. Police followed a suspicious person into the male washroom and asked to see the person’s hands before they walked into a bathroom stall as it appeared the person was holding something. The person then revealed

to allegedly be holding “two flaps” of cocaine (about .4 to half a gram’s worth). The person was arrested and allegedly found with eight more flaps. The person was arrested for possession of cocaine and possession for the purpose of trafficking. He was released with a promise to appear in court in April. The person is under conditions now to not have a cellphone or electronic communication device. If you have any information about these or any other crimes please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, or contact the Kitimat RCMP at 250-632-7111. Crime Stoppers is anonymous and does not subscribe to call display and calls are not traced or recorded. If your information leads to an arrest or charge you may be eligible for a cash reward.

10 lucky minor hockey teams from BC will each receive 25 tickets… Submit an entry by telling us how hockey, your team or a favourite player has inspired you.

Encourage everyone to enter and increase your odds of winning in the random draw. Include a photo if you want – perhaps from your own hockey days, or a team photo or show us how excited your team would be to win 25 tickets to the Heritage Classic. Players, coaches, friends and family can enter on behalf of a BC minor hockey team.
