Plebescite survives cancellation


KITIMAT - Despite an effort by councillor Phil Germuth, Kitimat will continue sailing ahead on a plebiscite for the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipelines proposal. April 12 is set for the general voting day for people to offer their opinion in an election-like setting. However the question remains unchanged, which is a problem for Germuth and part of the reason he set to have the process cancelled. District of Kitimat administration has estimated the bill to the town on holding the plebiscite to be approximately $13,500. Corinne Scott voted with Germuth in cancelling the plebiscite, while the remainder were in favour. Rob Goffinet is out of town and so was not in attendance for the meeting on March 3. Germuth didn’t mince words in describing his opinion of the question at hand for April. “The community came out and told us the questions stink and yet we completely ignored it,” he said to applause in the gallery of people watching the meeting. “So how you can say you care about the feel of the community? Not one person came up to the mic and said ‘oh I think it’s a great question, I think

you’re doing a good job.’” Germuth was reacting to the majority of council saying they want to proceed on the plebiscite to know how the community feels about the project. “I’m quite interested in determining to what extent our community is divided...hopefully we’ll get a strong turn-out at the plebiscite,” he said. He adds that he wants the results to be forwarded to senior levels of government. Mary Murphy feels that the process is worthwhile, also noting that the price tag for the plebiscite works out to $1.50 a person. She said holding the plebiscite is giving residents their right to voice their opinion. Edwin Empinado said that while he had initially wanted the cheaper mail-out option, he later came to realize cost wasn’t what is important, and says council should push through on a plebiscite, as it will be important knowledge for council. But for Corinne Scott meanwhile isn’t convinced the plebiscite will benefit anyway. “At this point, as much as we wanted to know what the feeling of the community is, all that we know so far is that we’re split,” she said. She added that if just 50 per cent of eligible voters turn out they still won’t have a good idea of the community opinion on the pipeline project.

Thousands gather in Victoria to blast BC Ferries cuts By Tom Fletcher The Northern connector

VICTORIA – Hundreds of people gathered on the lawn of the B.C. legislature Tuesday to call for the provincial government to cancel its cuts to lower-usage ferry runs set to take effect in April. Among the speakers at the rally were Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin and Sheila Malcolmson, chair of the Islands Trust, the local government for the Gulf Islands. Malcolmson told a cheering crowd that the taxpayer subsidy to BC Ferries has been overemphasized. She said since the B.C. Liberal government took office in 2001, ferry users have paid $5 billion in fares, while taxpayers have subsidized the operation by $1 billion. Transportation Minister Todd Stone said he welcomes protesters exercising their freedom of

speech, but the intention to cut $18.9 million from low-usage routes was made clear before the 2013 election. The provincial subsidy to coastal ferries has increased by almost $90 million over three years, and cost reductions are needed to keep fares from rising further, he said. “There are too many sailings on the BC Ferries system with utilization rates in the low teens and single digits, and I think British Columbians support us in believing that is not sustainable,” Stone said. “There are more staff than cars and passengers on many of these sailings.” Opposition critics resumed their focus on the impact of ferry cuts in the legislature Tuesday. NDP leader Adrian Dix called on the government to do an economic impact study on tourism and other business in coastal communities. Dix quoted Premier Christy

Clark from her radio talk show in 2008, where she argued that fare hikes were reaching the point where they would produce net revenue loss. North Island MLA Claire Trevena, the NDP critic on ferries, reminded Stone that replacing the Queen of Chilliwack with the much smaller, open-decked MV Nimpkish on the summer run from Bella Bella to Bella Coola has been greeted with dismay by tourism operators. Stone said the existing service to Bella Coola carries about 500 vehicles during a 13-week season, with a public subsidy that works out to $2,500 per vehicle carried. Trevena suggested that given the lack of facilities on the Nimpkish for a sailing of more than nine hours, an ad campaign for the Discovery Coast ferry route might include the slogan, “coming soon, drinkable water.”

Anti-bullying play in works By Cameron Orr


KITIMAT - John-Mark Raddatz is looking for a few more students to fill out a Welcoming Communities’ hosted anti-bullying play in Kitimat. In early April the community will be invited out to a play, written locally by Angela Schmidt, and will cover themes of combating bullying. Her play is called Don’t Fight Fire with Fire. The basic idea of the play is that when a bully acts out, instead of the victims engaging with revenge, the characters instead attempt to pull the bully out of bullying behaviour.



Raddatz said a lot of the schools are offering up students for the cast, and they’re looking for anyone in grade five or higher, including high school, to be involved. The Organization Against Hate and Racism has provided the resources to produce this play. Schmidt won the chance to have her play selected for this year’s show after a contest which ended in January sought the writer for the production. “We allowed students grades seven through 12 to submit plays to us...with at least eight characters,” said Raddatz. “Many of them were very good.” He said he chose a play that was well geared to be suited to all

audiences, including elementary school students, without being too heavy. The play includes 15 characters. The large cast, he said, lets them have more participation in the play. Raddatz said a contest is meanwhile still ongoing to celebrate diversity. Until August 2 people 13 and up can upload a group picture to Instagram celebrating diversity and tag the Kitimat Inclusion and Anti-bullying Instagram account (k_iab) for a chance to win pizza for yourself and three friends. Meanwhile if people want to get involved in the April 2 antibullying play they can contact Raddatz at 250-639-7037.

Industry groups are opposed to provincial recycling plan VANCOUVER - An alliance of business groups opposed to the new Multi Material BC recycling system are demanding the province halt the planned May 19 launch and go back to the drawing board. MMBC, an industry stewardship group, is poised to take responsibility for curbside blue box collection – with more containers and material types collected than before – while charging businesses for the recycling of the packaging and paper they generate. But it’s been in a bitter fight with small business groups that complain they are set to pay punishingly high fees, which will then be passed on to consumers. The battle took a new turn March 9, when the Canadian Federation of Independent Business and eight other associations launched a campaign in B.C. newspapers and online at to amplify the pressure on Victoria. CFIB provincial affairs director Mike Klassen predicted job losses and some business closures as a result of the MMBC regulations and fees. “This is public policy run amok,” he said. “We are asking British Columbians to talk to the B.C. government to push the pause button on its reckless and red tapeladen program.” B.C. Agriculture Council vice-chair Stan Vander Waal said farmers can’t readily stop packaging strawberries and blueberries in plastic clamshells, because retailers insist that’s what consumers want. “We have to wear the cost,” he said, adding MMBC fees will cost his Chilliwack farm $60,000 to $100,000 a year. “It goes directly against growing agriculture.” Canadian Newspa-

per Association chairman Peter Kvarnstrom, who is publisher of a paper in Sechelt, warned the the new system will be “catastrophic” to B.C. community and daily newspapers, resulting in job losses in an already challenged industry and reduced service to communities. The opposition groups say they support the aim of the program – to make generators of packaging pay to recycle it – but they dispute the fees and say multinational consumer goods firms like Unilever and Walmart control MMBC and are manipulating it to their benefit, not that of local businesses. Most of the fees for container waste are double or even quadruple what businesses in Ontario pay to a similar agency. Newspapers say they face a $14-milliona-year bite out of their operations because of the 20 cents per kilogram they will pay on newsprint, compared to less than half a penny in Ontario.

single-family homes. He said B.C.’s successful container deposit system also means there’s less recyclable material left here for container stewards to collect and sell, so fees have to be higher to cover the system costs. Langdon said no business is forced to join MMBC, adding groups like the newspaper industry are free to develop their own system. “If they think there’s a better way, I think it’s important they put it forward.” Environment Minister Mary Polak said most businesses are exempt from the fees if they have under $1 million of retail sales, generate less than a tonne of material or operate out of a single retail outlet, while generators of one to five tonnes per year pay flat fees of $550 or $1,200. She said property taxpayers will save money because MMBC will now pay for recycling collection that local municipalities previously paid.

They contend a high proportion of newsprint is already recycled in B.C. through blue boxes. Kvarnstrom said newspapers are considering options to create their own newsprint collection system – a move that could also deprive MMBC of newsprint revenue and undermine the program’s viability. Magazine industry reps also warned small B.C. magazines will pay not only for their own paper recycling, but will also effectively subsidize big U.S. magazines like Harper’s or Vogue that will be exempt from MMBC fees on magazines mailed into B.C. Printers predict some orders will shift to presses in the U.S. or Alberta to skirt the fees, costing jobs in B.C. MMBC managing director Allen Langdon said MMBC’s higher fees are because they fully finance the program and ensure service for multi-family apartments and rural depots, in contrast to Ontario’s more limited focus on

Child escapes attempted abduction

RTI Donates…

Notice of Meeting Special Open Board Meeting


PRINCE RUPERT – Prince Rupert RCMP are asking parents to be vigilant after the attempted abduction of an 11-year-old girl on Thursday night. After playing at a friend’s house in the Drake Crescent area on the evening of March 6, the girl began walking up Drake Crescent toward Prince Rupert Blvd. When she reached the intersection, a man grabbed her from behind and began to pull her into nearby bushes. Fortunately for the girl, the suspect tripped and fell, which allowed her to break free and run away. Following the sound of her screams, the girl’s friend found her unharmed. The only description of the assailant is of a young man who was wearing dark clothes and sunglasses. “Given the concerning nature of what appears to be a random incident, police are informing the community of this event and ask that they remain vigilant when out and about,” said Const. Matt Ericson of the Prince Rupert RCMP. “Currently the matter is under investigation, and we are asking the public to report any persons acting suspiciously around young people.” The attempted abduction prompted a phone call from the Prince Rupert School District to all parents, alerting them to the incident. Superintendent Sandy Jones said although not done on a regular basis, situations like this warrant a blanket call. “We were working closely with the RCMP on that. We received notice of a complaint from the RCMP and decided to send out a call to everyone to make sure people were aware,” she said, noting the district is not taking any further action unless advised of another similar case by the RCMP. “We thought better to be safe than sorry.” Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

Environmental Assessment of the Proposed Prince Rupert LNG

Open House and Invitation to Comment BG Group (Proponent) is proposing to construct and operate a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility on Ridley Island near Prince Rupert, British Columbia (proposed Project). The proposed Project would liquefy natural gas and transfer it to ships for transport to market. The proposed Project consists of two LNG processing units, two LNG storage tanks and an LNG shipping terminal with a total capacity of 14 million tonnes per annum (mtpa).

The intention of seeking public comments is to ensure that all potential effects – environmental, economic, social, heritage and health – that might result from the proposed Project are identified for consideration as part of the assessment process. At this stage of the process, the primary intent is to receive feedback about the studies or information required for a comprehensive environmental assessment.

The proposed Project is subject to review under British Columbia’s Environmental Assessment Act and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act.

After taking public comments into account, EAO will finalize the Application Information Requirements and issue them to the Proponent.

The Proponent must obtain an environmental assessment certificate before any work can be undertaken on the proposed Project. However, prior to submission of an application (Application) for a certificate by the Proponent, Environmental Assessment Office of British Columbia (EAO) must first approve Application Information Requirements.

EAO accepts public comments through the following ways: • By Online Form at • By Mail: Kenneth Howes Project Assessment Manager Environmental Assessment Office PO Box 9426 Stn Prov Govt Victoria BC V8W 9V1

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 EAO invites the public to attend an Open House. There will be two Open Houses, to be held as follows: at: Community Centre, 770 Pacific Ave, Port Edward on: 2 April 2014 from: 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. North Coast Convention Centre, 240 West 1st Ave, Prince Rupert on: 3 April 2014 from: 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at:

Fraser Health has confirmed two cases and about 100 suspected cases in the Eastern Fraser Valley. Officials wouldn’t identify the school Monday, except to say it is in a Chilliwack community with a history of low immunization rates. Officials asked anyone who believes they are exposed to measles to contact their doctor before arriving at a medical facility.

FRASER VALLEY - Health Minister Terry Lake said his ministry is watching closely as Fraser Health deals with a potential outbreak of measles, which appears linked to a lack of routine vaccinations in school-aged children. Lake said he has not yet considered making vaccinations mandatory for school-aged children, as other provinces have, despite some schools in the Fraser Valley reporting no vaccinations at all. “At this time we’re not going down

Gov’t boosts preparation VICTORIA - The provincial government hopes a campaign about to start will improve its ability to act in the face of a large earthquake. The campaign will see the opinions of all levels of government, businesses and families and non-governmental organizations. Activities will focus on those re-

gions at the highest risk of an earthquake. A final report is to be submitted to the provincial justice ministry by the end of the year. The province will also launch a public education campaign to get more people prepared to take action and to prepare for an earthquake. Proud to Sponsor

NORTHWEST TRANSMISSION LINE Snowmobiler and Winter Recreation Users Public Safety Notice Snowmobilers and winter recreationalists (cross country skiers, snow shoers, etc.) should be aware that the Northwest Transmission Line (NTL) is under construction, and the NTL right-of-way remains a construction zone with restricted access. This is required to avoid safety risks associated with such things as unmarked guy lines, construction materials and other potential hazards along the right-of-way, as well as for public and worker safety as construction activities continue. In particular, over the past year many of the transmission structures for the NTL project have been installed. Most of these structures are supported by currently unmarked guy lines which can be very difficult to see against a snow background. Please avoid using the right-of-way for your activities. If you are in the area, take extra care when travelling in the vicinity of the transmission structures. If you have any questions, please contact BC Hydro stakeholder engagement: 1 866 647 3334 or send an email to

Access to Exstew camp site may be lost By Martina Perry The Northern connector

PRINCE RUPERT – Access to the Exstew River Recreation Site is in jeopardy, with CN planning to put up a locked gate on the road leading to the area if an agreement isn’t reached before the end of the month. CN erected a sign beside its private crossing, which intersects with the dirt road leading to the popular recreation site, warning the public of CN’s plans to close the crossing as of April 1. Emily Hamer, CN’s regional manager of public and government affairs, said the company is “currently speaking with interested parties” to see if another group will take over responsibility of the crossing. “The crossing at the Exstew road is a private crossing that intersects with a forest service road, which is under the jurisdiction of the province. At this time CN is clarifying who will take responsibility for the maintenance of the private railway crossing,” said Hamer. The dirt roadway leading to the site is currently under the responsibility of Coast Tsimshian Resources (CTR), a forest company owned by the Lax Kw’alaams First Nation band. Although CTR holds the road permit for the area, it doesn’t currently have any active cut-

ting permits. A statement from CTR said the company has continued to maintain the road for the benefit of recreational users, with maintenance of the rail crossing in question being done “by others”. “CTR has no economic reason to keep the road permit open, but for goodwill we have maintained portions of the road for the past four years to allowed continued public access to the Forest Service camp ground,” said Dave Jackson of CTR. “Perhaps the Forest Service may wish to take over the crossing and establish the road tenure as a forest service road to ensure the public has continued access ... as recreational access may be impacted by such a closure, CTR is hopeful that CN will seek an arrangement that will continue to keep this crossing open,” read the statement. The Exstew River Recreation Site is under the jurisdiction of British Columbia’s Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (FLNRO). Ministry spokesperson Greig Bethel confirmed CN has spoken to the ministry about taking over responsibility over the last few months, however at this time it will not be doing so. “If for some reason in the

CN Rail may erect a gate that would block access to the Exstew River forestry camp site. future Coast Tsimshian decides they no longer want that road permit, the ministry would look at options at that time,” said Bethel. Hamer said if an agreement is not in place by April 1 CN will close the crossing with a locked gate, to the disappointment of many longtime users. North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice said she has received many calls and emails about the potential closure and has been working with Skeena MLA Robin Austin on the issue. “We are clear in understanding that the site is very important to local Terrace and Prince Rupert residents who have enjoyed the area with their

family for many years,” said Rice, who believes it would be “hugely problematic” if the crossing was gated. “At this stage we have to wait and see what Coast Tsimshian Resources’ intentions are ... if this comes to the point where the road is gated, Skeena MP Robin Austin and I are definitely going to be proactive in lobbying the provincial government to keep the site open and take on the responsibility of the road,” she continued. “We’re hoping it doesn’t get to that because the government has been talking about times of austerity and budgets are all really squeezed.”

“i want my grandchildren to work here. i’m voting yes.”


trish parsons, Kitimat

“With all the ups and downs over the years, it’s been tough for Kitimat. We need some stability. We need to know that everything’s going to be good for a long time, not just a year or two. The Northern Gateway project will bring that stability. I’m glad it’s going to bring jobs, but also training. Wouldn’t it be great if our kids could get more education here, rather than heading off to Vancouver or Calgary? For me, the best thing about living in Kitimat is that you can go hiking or fishing on your way home from work. It’s a special place to live. But without jobs and stability, I worry that my kids and grandkids won’t be able to live here with me. And that’s what I want more than anything. So I’m voting yes.”

PRINCE RUPERT - Lax Kw’alaams Mayor Garry Reece wants to make it clear that none of the multiple energy projects proposed for the North Coast have yet gained the band’s approval. Reece said the band has put together a team of science and business advisers to look at the projects, but the band is not ready to put their stamp of approval on any of them just yet. “Each project will be assessed on the benefits and risks that it may bring to Lax Kw’alaams. The Lax Kw’alaams membership is unified in the belief that any project must protect our marine resources and accord with our traditions and our respect for the environment,” he said. “Lax Kw’alaams is open for business on the right terms. Any partnerships we engage in must satisfy the social, economic, traditional and environmental requirements of the Band and membership ... our goal is to ensure that the projects we support are for the northwest, not just in the Northwest.”

One project Reece addressed specifically is the oil refinery proposed for Grassy Point by Eagle Spirit Energy. The company held a meeting in Lax Kw’alaams to discuss the project on Oct. 4, but Reece said that meeting was very preliminary in nature. “The Lax Kw’alaams Band Council offered the company’s representatives the opportunity to meet with members of the community to present their proposal. However, we want to clarify that this was not an acceptance of the proposal,” said Reece. “Eagle Spirit has no authority to enter into agreements on behalf of the Lax Kw’alaams, nor does Eagle Spirit have the authority to speak for the Lax Kw’alaams Council or membership.” As well as the oil refinery, Woodside LNG, Aurora LNG and Enbridge have expressed interest in developing LNG across from Lax Kw’alaams.

Terrace chamber of commerce seeks Enbridge opinions TERRACE - The Terrace business community can now have its say on Enbridge’s Northern Gateway project thanks to an online survey hosted by the Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce. The survey, several months in the planning and posted March 5, follows the Decem-

ber 2013 release of an environmental review which recommended the federal government approve the project subject to Enbridge fulfilling 209 conditions. In February 2012, just after Terrace city council voted to oppose Northern Gateway, the chamber executive released a letter saying that while it took a neutral stance to the pipeline project until

the review panel released its report, it did welcome new industry to the area. Chamber executive director Carol Fielding said it seemed overall opinion on the Gateway project to pump Alberta crude to an export terminal at Kitimat is divided and that the chamber’s board of directors decided a survey was one method of finding out the opinion

of the organization’s nearly 300 members. “The few we heard from some supported, some didn’t and asked why did you write the letter. So it said to us that we should canvas our members to see what they think,” said Fielding. She also said that the survey results will only be considered valid and the results released to the public if more than

50 per cent of the members respond. Even if the number of surveys submitted is under that, the chamber board will still release a position statement on the Gateway project, Fielding said. Chamber members can respond to the 11 statements in the survey only once. Respondents can strongly disagree, somewhat disagree,

TERRACE - A Vancouver public relations firm specializing in natural resource issues has opened an office in Terrace to expand its northwest client base. “The northern regions of the province are the economic powerhouses for the next generation of British Columbians. We pride ourselves on our work in the communities where our business is generated,” said PR Associates president Robert Simpson. He said the company keys on the concept of “social licence,” the requirement that companies nowadays need broad-based community support for any project they wish to undertake. As such, PR Associates works to bridge any gaps between companies and community groups and individuals, Simpson added. The company’s cli-

ent list in the region includes the Tahltan Nation Development Corporation, which is the business arm of the Tahltan people, and Seabridge Gold, which wants to open a large gold mine northwest of Stewart. The company also worked with the Tahltan Central Council in the lead up to voting by Tahltan to approve of economic benefits packages arising from two AltaGas run-of-river projects within Tahltan traditional territory. And it also worked with the council on the vote by Tahltan people to accept an economic benefits package arising from work on BC Hydro’s Northwest Transmission Line. Both the AltaGas and Northwest Transmission Line packages were approved by members of the Tahltan Nation. PR Associates has

hired Terrace mayor Dave Pernarowski to be its Terrace manager and also have an office in Toronto. Pernarowski says he’ll avoid any conflict of interest associated with his new job as manager of the Terrace office of a Vancouver public relations firm. “I would not be giving presentations to council on behalf of a client and would likely even recuse myself from a general presentation to council from a PR Associates client to avoid any perceived conflict. I will always manage this issue carefully,” said Pernarowski. He said that same principle would apply to any council discussion concerning a PR Associates client. Pernarowski had been working since early last year for Kitsault Energy, a company which wants to devel-

op a floating liquefied natural gas plant at the

abandoned mining town of Kitsault.

Let’s Make Wine!

Wine N Suds Robert Broome OWNER

It is a fact that certain wines are more popular than others. In recent times red wines actually have the largest and still growing following of enthusiasts. In B.C. we take great pride in our Okanogan region wines. Many of us believe they will compete as world class wines. This belief was proven last year when an Okanogan wine won best Pinot Noir in the world. Pinot Noir is a great food wine and a popular wine for sommeliers to recommend. Pinot Noir has a fruity flavorful back ground, mellow tannins and light spice in the finish. These attributes make this is a wine a with a universal flavor quality that will go with everything from lamb or beef to chicken or fish. The best method to use a Pinot Noir as a complementary wine to your dinner is by building the dish you would like to serve in a simple but flavorful way, then making a Pinot Noir based sauce and using the sauce a condiment. Herbs like rosemary and thyme are right in this wine’s flavor wheel house. Pinot Noir does not do well against fatty meats or certain spices in the food. Spices like a Montreal steak spice or a fatty piece of meat done with a heavy BBQ sauce will definitely over power Pinot Noirs gentle nature. Here is one of the many sauce recipes easily available online for a Pinot Noir sauce. Recipe • 2 TBS unsalted butter • 1 cup Beef or Chicken Stock. Beef stock for red meat, chicken stock for fowl. • 3/4 Cup Pinot Noir • 1 Tsp Whole Pepper Corns • 1 plum tomato seeded and chopped • ¼ Red onion sliced thin • 1 Sprig fresh Thyme. • 1 TBS honey Method Melt butter in a sauce pan add onions and cook until nicely caramelized about 4 minutes. Add Pinot Noir keep the heat up close to high and stir while reducing the wine for about 4 minutes. Add stock, pepper corns, tomato, thyme and honey. Bring to boil then reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes until the sauce coats the back of a metal spoon. Remove from heat and pour sauce through a sieve into a bowl stir the solids around until you have all the sauce and dispose of the solids. Put a couple table spoons of this sauce over roast beef or filet mignon maybe some duck. Serve a glass of the Pinot Noir with your dinner and enjoy. Recipe from Scott Hargrove.

Sallenback takes Mariner’s Bonspiel win By Todd Hamilton


PRINCE RUPERT - Jim Blackstone had a choice in the third end of the 63rd Annual Prince Rupert Marine Bonspiel and it was a classic choice — risk versus reward. He took the risk but wasn’t rewarded. Prince Rupert’s Blackstone rink and Terrace’s Chad Sallenback exchanged singles in the first two ends of the A Event Final on Sunday. When the smoke cleared in the third, Sallenback had all but locked up his fourth title. Sallenback, who had the hammer in the third and lying four, made a choice to cut off a runback attempt and instead played into Blackstone’s strength by forcing Blackstone to attempt a risky freeze draw to Sallenback’s shot stone at the back of the button. “We had two choices and we couldn’t block all of them” Sallenback said. “I guess we played right into his strength from what we heard ... I knew if he made it we were pretty much done and he’d steal on us.” Halfway down the sheet, Blackstone’s freeze attempt was just slightly too heavy and refused to curl up. His stone bumped off the shot stone and

rolled to second shot. But Blackstone’s stone was wide open and lonely with five other Sallenback rocks in the rings. “He had that freeze to the back button, but it just hung out there and stayed straight. We were able to double it back and get a little inside roll ... the rest was history. It was a pretty big end for us,” Sallenback said. Blackstone picked up a single in the fourth before taking off the gloves, shaking hands and handing Sallenback a 7-2 victory. This was Sallenback’s third title in four years and fourth overall dating back to 2005. He was the B Event champion in 2013. Sallenback’s rink consisted of Lead Dave Reniero, Second Shane Dejong and Third Mike Dahms. In the B Event Final, Al Parker of Smithers picked up three in the first and stole two in the fourth on the way to a 8-6 win over Dan Fisher of Terrace. In the C Event Final, John Evans of Terrace fought back from an early 3-1 deficit with a steal of two in the fifth to defeat Al Bowles, also of Terrace, 7-4. In the D Event Final, Prince Rupert’s Travis Bernhardt picked up three in the first end and then added steals of one in the second and third ends to double up Jun Yamamoto of Prince Rupert 6-3.

Points North swimmers make a splash at provincials Contributed THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

CHILLIWACK - Points North swimmers raced a successful AA short course (25 metre pool) provincial championships in Chilliwack over the March 1 weekend, sending a total of 14 swimmers from Terrace, Kitimat, Prince Rupert and Smithers to the annual event. And these northwest swimmers took home six medals, including two gold, two silver and two bronze. The championships saw over 400 swimmers from 44 teams in attendance. It was the largest attended AA Provincial championships in many years. To attend, swimmers must make the BC AA standards in two events but have less than two BC AAA time standards (the highest provincial qualifying time). This makes for extremely close racing at the championships. The Kitimat Marlins had seven swimmers attend, and they didn’t disappoint. Zachary Dumas (14) competing in the boys 14 and over boys age group took the gold medal in the 200 meter butterfly. His time in the event was the 43rd fastest time posted in Canada for a 14 year old boy this season. Dumas also achieved his second AAA time in the 400 individual medley placing fourth. With two AAA times he is now eligible to attend the AAA BC championships in Victoria in July. He also placed fifth in the 200 backstroke, and seventh in the 100 fly.

Ben Anker (15) also competing in the 14 and over boys division also qualified for the BC AAA Championships in July by achieving his first two AAA time standards in the 200 breaststroke and 400 IM. Anker took the silver medal in the 200 breast and bronze medal in the 400 IM. Anker also placed fourth in the 200 backstroke and 100 breaststroke and 6th in the 1500 freestyle. Hannah Pearson (11) competing in the girls 11 and under division achieved her first two AAA time

fly. Ethan Velho (13) competing in the 12-13 boys division had three top eight finishes. Velho placed sixth in the 200 backstroke, seventh in the 200 fly and eighth in the 1500 free. Robyn Alderman (17) competing in the 14 and over girls division placed eighth in the 100 breaststroke and achieved personal best times in five of her events. Morgan Winterburn (13) competing in the 12-13 girls division achieved personal best times in four

standards in the 400 IM and the 200 butterfly. Unfortunately she ages up so will not be eligible to attend the AAA championships in Victoria in July. She took the bronze medal in the 400 IM and placed fourth in the 200 butterfly. Pearson also placed eigth in the 800 freestyle. Leah Desousa (11) competing in the 11 and under girls division achieved her first BC AAA provincial time in the 200 butterfly and took the silver medal in the process. Desousa also placed sixth in the 100

of her events with her biggest improvement coming in the 400 meter freestyle, an eight second improvement. And the Terrace Bluebacks also saw gold, with veteran Blueback Thomas Christensen taking gold in the 100m Breast Stroke. The other Blueback Athletes attending were Jade Heathfield who swam a number of best times despite battling sickness for most February, and Raychel Davies who swam a best time in her 200 Back.

While you’re not looking, this is what’s happening to BC’s world renowned recycling program.

Well, lookie here. One minute you have a perfectly good Blue Box recycling program. The next, something new and rather questionable is being put in its place. And they thought they’d get away with it right under your nose, without telling you or asking your opinion. That’s definitely not democracy in action. The BC Government, elected by us to represent our best interests, has decided to offload the costs of recycling to big multi-national corporations. To implement this new plan, they’ve set up an association that doesn’t really seem to hold the environment, local jobs, or the municipalities that run the Blue Box program, close to its heart.

Perhaps that’s why some of our local elected officials are using the word “scam” to describe how the new program is being set up. It’s also perhaps why several of BC’s municipalities refuse to jump on board. That’s gotta tell you something. Now it’s your turn to let Premier Christy Clark know what you think. Contact her today to say that dismantling an already-working recycling program to replace it with something that few people think will be as good, is a bad idea.

What’s going on here?
