Work camp plan sparks outcry By JOSH MASSEY THE POTENTIAL for a huge worker accommodation development beside a residential subdivision in Thornhill just off Hwy37 has caused nearby residents to sign a petition against the rezoning of land for that purpose. PTI Group, a company based out of Edmonton that specializes in worker lodging, has purchased a 93-acre parcel located north of

the Churchill Dr. subdivision a few minutes south of Terrace and some clearing is already being done. Sean Crockett, VP of Business Development for PTI said his company was attracted to Thornhill because of the proximity to the commercial centre of Terrace and also to key transportation infrastructure. “We were attracted to the location near the airport and the proximity to the highway,” he said, add-

ing that the plans for any worker housing development are not finalized, and that PTI has engaged in some informal public consultation. “We have reached out to a few of the local residents that we have been put in contact with just to introduce ourselves, but we have no defined plan at this stage,” he said. What any camp will look like and even a final decision on whether it will be built Crockett said won’t happen until later this year.

The petition against the plan for a work camp was signed by 50 Churchill residents and states that “while not formally advertised, PTI’s reported intention is to seek approval for a temporary or permanent re-zoning” from the current residential designation of the property. The statement goes on to say that the “supposed re-zoning would be for the development of an industrial camp and/or indus-

trial laundry or to develop other industrial activity.” Any details such as industrial laundry and rezoning are not part of any official plan, Crockett said. “They are speculations I think,” Crockett said. “Obviously they know PTI as a company and are making assumptions.” The community petition contains a list of nine concerns.

Anglers say no to Enbridge By ANNA KILLEN ENBRIDGE SHOULDN’T be allowed to continue studying the possibility of building two run-of-river power projects on local water courses, says the northern branch of the Steelhead Society of BC. The Clore River, 12 kilometres southeast of Terrace, and Williams Creek, a major tributary of Lakelse Lake, are important fishbearing water courses and are ideal kayaking locations, says the branch in a letter to energy minister Bill Bennett. Enbridge, through numbered companies, received licences late last year to examine the idea of run-of-river projects on the river and creek. Two more proposals to examine locations in the Kitimat area, at McKay Creek and Bolton Creek, also received approval. “We’re an energy company not just a pipeline company, so we’re always looking for opportunities that might prove to be good ones for our renewable portfolio,” said Enbridge public relations official Ivan Giesbrecht, of the company which wishes to build the controversial Northern Gateway pipeline that would see Alberta crude transported by pipeline across B.C. and exported through the port of Kitimat on tankers. The 25 megawatt Williams Creek run-ofriver project, as outlined in Enbridge’s project scope report submitted to the ministry, would connect to the BC Hydro grid by way of a new one-kilometre 69 kilovolt transmission line running west of the project.

Lodging plan still in works, says company Crockett said his company has had no formal discussion with regional district officials about developing or rezoning the Thornhill land, and planner Ken Newman confirmed last week that he has not seen details of any proposed worker lodging development by the company. Regional district director for the Thornhill area, Ted Ramsey, said he wants PTI “to put their cards on the table” so that a more formal and less rumour-based discussion over its merits can begin. The petition letter against potential rezoning for a work camp addressed to the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine board directors cites increased traffic turning onto the Hwy37, threats to the wildlife corridor, and a predicted decline in property values for neighbours as some of the reasons they oppose the preliminary plan. One Churchhill resident who spearheaded the petition against rezoning, Jonathan Lambert, believes the Skeena Industrial Development Park farther south near the airport is a better location for work camps. “People in Terrace should be concerned. They have invested in the airport lands and I don’t understand why the airport lands can’t be used for this,” he said. “I suspect it would be an aesthetic issue and traffic issue,” Lambert said of a work camp development in Thorhill beside his home community. “They are entitled to do what they want with it except for rezoning which needs community approval.” “It would lead to short term tax gains and

long term precedent setting for work camps close to town. If you put single family homes there you have 50, 80, 100 years of taxation potentially.” According to Crockett, PTI specializes in semi-permanent labour housing facilities and could be looking at operating a lodging facility in Thornhill for 10 years or longer. The company website says it provides “permanent and temporary workforce accommodations designed with a hotelier mindset.” “We build facilities that are higher in quality and constructed for the long term, that’s what sets them apart from a camp,” said Crockett. “We haven’t defined whether that’s the type of project we will pursue in Terrace,” he added. Last year PTI was successful in its rezoning application to develop worker lodging for more than 2,000 workers in a residential area in Kitimat. PTI is also eyeing a development in Port Edward, said Crockett. The release of the petition comes in the wake of recent resolutions passed by both Terrace city council and the regional district asking that more input be allowed from municipalities in the permitting process for work camps and other forms of temporary worker lodging. The resolution also calls for a single governmental body be created to consolidate the permitting process.

Above, kallie Albert, 4, and her mom Sara buy hotdogs at a barbecue fundraiser for Hailey outside of Walmart March 14. Right, Sarah Crompton takes video of International Dessert Night as members of the area Sparks and Girl Guides gather for a combined meeting at Uplands Elementary Feb. 19. The video was sent to Hailey, who is a Spark.

Battling leukemia with a smile A little girl diagnosed with leukemia is fighting the disease with a smile. Hailey Pettit, 6, has been at BC Children’s Hospital since January 5 for treatment of Burkitt’s Leukemia. Her mom Sherry Pettit has been by her side since they were medevaced to Vancouver the same day she was diagnosed, said her dad Ted Pettit, who tries to travel down to see her once a month and who uses a webcam to speak with her daily. The disease is very aggressive so the treatment is just as aggressive, said Ted. Hailey’s beginning her fifth round of chemotherapy, which is about one week of treatment and one week without treatment to give her body a chance to recover, he said. In spite of it all, Hailey is still “a ray

of sunshine,” said Ted. You can see that in her photos but it’s even more evident in person, he added. “When you see her face to face, she brightens up the room,” he said, adding at times she does feel sad. “Both my girls are my heroes,” he said, referring to Hailey and her older sister Kyra, 11. Hailey didn’t want anyone to shave their head for her because she didn’t want them to be uncomfortable, but Ted came up with an idea to do something for her. She likes pigtails so he decided to try to grow some for her, which also includes growing a goatee as pigtails might grow faster there and not on his head, which he shaves. The outpouring of community support has been amazing, he said.

“I don’t think I was prepared for the amount of support, the amount of love and support this town has shown, it’s completely overwhelming,” said Ted. “It’s kind of wonderful so while she’s there, she knows she’s not alone.” A Facebook page, Team Hailey, provides updates on Hailey, photos and is where anyone can post greetings to Hailey, who is expected to be in hospital for another six to eight months. In a message from Vancouver, Sherry said, “Hailey is my HERO...I am so very proud of her strength through this journey... We feel wrapped by the arms of our community...I can not convey how this makes us feel....thank you to one and all.” To learn more about fundraisers for Hailey, see the Team Hailey Facebook page.

New signs prompt a review of bylaw By Josh Massey Bright signs with moving images on them have become popular for businesses in Terrace. But a presentation by one person at the March 10 council meeting opposing the animated LED signs triggered debate among council members when it came to voting on permits allowing more of the same. “It’s sky trash,” said local resident Daniel Nieckarz in his presentation to council. “It’s TV on a stick.” Citing studies that show a higher incident of traffic accidents near distracting signs as well as the polices in several US States and Sweden that ban billboards, the Jackpine Flats resident closed his presentation by calling on council to tell Boston Pizza, the first company to erect an animated sign, to take it down. In particular, Nieckarz thought playing clips of hockey games was distracting to drivers and he was backed by councillor Lynne Christiansen who said that the Boston Pizza sign could ruin the view of Sleeping Beauty mountain. “On behalf of my fellow concerned citizens I am here to ask council to create a policy to ban electronic bill boards,” said Nieckarz, adding that Terrace should seek to beautify, and not contribute what he termed “sky pollution”. When city council approved a variance permit last year allowing Boston Pizza to install an animated sign at the front of its restaurant on Hwy16 it opened a bit of a bylaw can of worms. Written in 1996, Terrace’s sign bylaw doesn’t contain rules about animated signs, and as a consequence the city has in recent years found itself in the position of having to establish rules one variance permit at a time. Since Boston Pizza, three other businesses have applied for variance permits, including the two ap-

plications, voted on by council March 10. Historically, animated electronic signs have only been permitted in the C2 zone designated to large commercial operations such as the Skeena Mall, and so any business that isn’t in that zone has to go through a variance permit application process. The two companies wanting variances were the Terrace Carpet Center/Your Decor business in the C3 commercial zone on Keith Ave., practically right across the road from Tim Hortons, and a vehicle maintenance business called Lindsay Enterprises Inc., located at 5131 Keith Ave. in the light industrial area of the city. Although the votes for the two variances did pass, councillor Stacey Tyers and James Cordeiro voted against the Terrace Carpet Centre/Your Decor variance request. Tyers said a LED sign could distract drivers at the busy intersection of Hwy16/Keith Ave. and Kalum, right near where the business is located, as a reason. Councillor Brian Downie, who did vote in favour, did say that according to ICBC, the intersection has the most accidents. “We have an obsolete bylaw,” he added of council’s ability to regulate signs in the digital age. “I think council has made it clear that this is making them uncomfortable,” said councillor Marylin Davies, who was acting deputy mayor in David Pernarowski’s second straight absence. The debate led to a recommendation put forward by councillor Bruce Bidgood. “I would like to recommend that staff review the progress to date in terms of revising the bylaw and a timeline for council’s consideration.” The Terrace Home Hardware Building Centre also recently received a permit for an animated sign. The coming bylaw could contain rules for setback distances at busy intersections.

Spill prevention called key to marine safety THE BEST way to deal with an oil spill on water is to prevent it in the first place, an assistant commissioner with the Canadian Coast Guard told a Terrace audience March 12. And while Norway is regarded as having the best prevention system in the world arising from its offshore oil industry, Canada has every chance of topping those standards, said Roger Girouard. “If we want world class, we’ll beat them at their game,” Girouard told a regular session of an Enbridge-sponsored group known as a community advisory board. Enbridge has set up five such boards along its intended Northern Gateway pipeline and marine traffic route to provide information and take questions about the $5.5 billion project and they meet regularly to hear presentations on a wide variety of topics. Girouard’s presentation concerned a Canadian Coast Guard project last fall to remove bunker oil from an American military transport ship which sank after after hitting Pitt Island on the North Coast during a bad storm in 1946. Small amounts of oil had been leaking over the years and there had been fears the entire cargo of oil would be released if the storage tanks ever gave way.

Girouard described an intricate operation involving specialized equipment and divers to safely remove the oil from the ship resting on the bottom of the ocean. In taking questions afterward, Girouard emphasized establishing standards and regulations for all facets of tanker traffic, including traffic management, search and rescue and navigation. “There’s a lot of work to be done at that level of detail,” he said. “It’s all possible. It’s all about will.” “Whether it’s LNG or black oil, prevent the spill.” Environmentalists and others have been highly critical of the Northern Gateway pipeline project which would ship oil in tankers from a terminal at Kitimat. A spill, they say, would harm the ocean environment, affecting fish, marine life and bird populations as well as the north coast fishing economy. The provincial government has laid down the establishment of what it calls “world-leading marine oil spill response, prevention and recovery systems” as one of five conditions needed for it to approve the Northern Gateway or any other oil export project. The federal government has increased marine safety and spill response spending.


OTHER BUSINESSES following the lead of Boston Pizza in seeking permits to erect animated signs..

Enbridge gathers names MORE THAN 600 people and businesses have already signed up to an Enbridge Northern Gateway online database in anticipation of working on the planned pipeline to pump Alberta crude oil to a marine export terminal at Kitimat. Gateway official Catherine Pennington says the database is one way of finding out the skill sets of interested individuals and determining the capability of companies located along the pipeline corridor which stretches 1,777 kilometres. “There’s been quite a good response so far,” said Pennington of the database which went live in a soft launch the middle of last month. “What we’re really trying to determine is if there are any gaps in skill sets [for people] and business capabilities along the corridor.” Pennington said the database follows Enbridge’s commitments to establish community benefits arising from the planned construction of the $5.5 billion project. Following extensive hearings, the National Energy Board recom-

mended approval provided Enbridge meet 209 conditions. The federal cabinet is expected to make a decision about the project in June. Although the pipeline has yet to be approved, those who have signed up to the database could very well stand to benefit from what Pennington said is early fieldwork required by the NEB. The database is meant for individuals and companies located within 80 kilometres on either side of the pipeline corridor stretching from Alberta to Kitimat. Pennington said the database will specifically help Enbridge develop its commitment for aboriginal development. “There is provision to self identify [as aboriginals] if they feel comfortable,” she said. Speaking to a luncheon meeting in Terrace yesterday, Janet Holder, Enbridge Northern Gateway senior executive in charge of the project, said it had already spent $350 million on the project up to last December.

Two large subdivisions planned A LOCAL company wants to buy two parcels of crown land in Terrace and Thornhill in order to develop as many as 180 single family residential lots. The largest of the two parcels wanted by M & M Ventures, is 100 acres in Thornhill to contain 124 lots, and the smaller parcel is 15 acres for nearly 60 lots on the bench in Terrace. It has filed crown land purchase applications with the provincial government for both parcels. “Quite simply we believe there is a need and a demand for new housing,” said Mike Scott, one of the principals of M & M Ventures, in noting current activity and the prospect of liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities in Kitimat and elsewhere.

“We’ve been disappointed in the past, but this time I don’t believe that’s the case,” he said. “We’ve all been waiting for a long time to enjoy the kind of benefits people have been experiencing elsewhere.” Still, Scott said M & M Ventures would be prudent in its development spending after it acquires the crown land. “I don’t believe any of those large [LNG] companies have made a final investment decision yet. And when that happens there will be a domino effect. You will have smaller companies making their own investment decisions,” he said. “What we really need to do now is to be prepared and have our plans in place.” Provided the company acquires the par-

cels according to an anticipated time table, clearing work would start as soon as possible leading to the start of lot development this fall or early next year in both locations. Because of the number of Thornhill lots the development there would be phased in at approximately 30 lots a year leading toward 2020. “You don’t want to put all of your lots on the market at the same time,” said Scott. The Terrace bench development would have two phases of lot preparation. Scott said lot prices would only be determined once actual costs are known. “The cost of each development is substantial. You’re looking at roads, underground services, pipes, sewer,” he said. “Often a developer only makes a profit

with the last of the lots are being sold, after all of the costs have been paid for.” The Terrace bench parcel is the wooded property south, north and west of Ecole Mountainview School on Bailey. It does not include the wooded area bounded by Bailey and Mountain Vista immediately to the south of the school nor the wooded area immediately north of the school on Bailey. Those are set aside for parkland. The Thornhill parcel runs below Crescent toward Hwy16 and is generally bordered by Paquette on one end and by Sharples on the other end. Each of the subdivision developments would require new roads in addition to new service connections.

Enbridge survey deadline tonight MEMBERS OF the Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce are being reminded they have until midnight tonight to fill out an online questionnaire about the Enbridge Northern Gateway project. The questionnaire is being used by the chamber’s board to determine if it should or should not support the controversial $5.5 billion project to build an oil-carrying pipeline from Alberta to a marine export terminal at Kitimat. The chamber board will able to craft its position only if at least 50 per cent of its nearly 300 members fill out the questionnaire, says chamber executive director Carol Fielding. “It would be unfortunate to be in a position where the chamber board couldn’t prepare a position statement on behalf of its members,” she said. “We need at least 145 responses,” added Fielding of the 50 per cent threshold. She said responses will be treated in strict confidence and that only a summary of survey results would be released to the public. Members can only fill out the survey once. The questionnaire asks for opinions on 12 statements, with the first being whether or not the review panel struck to examine the project was an adequate process and the last one being whether the member filling out the survey supports the project or not.

BC Hydro line work continues

A NORTH American engineering partnership has opened an office in Terrace, making it another in a line of companies coming to the northwest in anticipation of an increase in major construction projects. Hatch Mott MacDonald is a combination of the Canadian firm of Hatch and the English firm of Mott MacDonald, offering engineering, purchasing and management services. “In North America we cooperate, but everywhere else we compete,” explains Terrace-based Hatch Mott MacDonald official Alex Pietralla. Pietralla, who had been with the Kitimat-Terrace In-

BC HYDRO is continuing its plans to build one new power line between Terrace and Kitimat but could decide to increase that to two lines late this summer, crown corporation officials told a Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce luncheon here March 12. Still to be decided is if the one line BC Hydro already knows it will build will be placed right beside the current line it will replace or if it will be constructed on the other side of the valley, said Robert Smith from BC Hydro. The current 287kV line. which starts out from BC Hydro’s Skeena Substation south of Terrace, has reached the end of its serviceable life, he said. Having two lines connecting to Kitimat would give BC Hydro the comfort of knowing that if one line was somehow put out of service, the other one would still be operating, he said. Should BC Hydro decide to build two lines, they could be side by side or on opposite sides of the valley running south to Kitimat. The planned work would keep BC Hydro busy in the area past this summer’s finishing of its Northwest Transmission Line running north of Terrace to Bob Quinn on Hwy37 North. That project is costing close to $736 million. BC Hydro is also going to provide hydro power to Iskut, north of Bob Quinn.


Firm sees the potential in northwest development dustrial Development Society until it closed down late last year, said the company has already had experience in the region. The client list includes designing and preparing cost estimates for two seven-kilometre long tunnels needed to contain the planned Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline, project design for a planned potash export terminal in Prince Rupert and design and lining up construction services for the Forest Kerr run of river hydro project, the largest of the three being built by AltaGas on the Iskut River. Hatch by itself has the con-

struction management contract for BC Hydro’s Northwest Transmission Line. Aside from engineering work itself, Hatch and Hatch Mott MacDonald are active within the community, says Pietralla. “It’s a matter of how we capture some of the business in the area – how we stay competitive and how we fulfill the social responsibility of the company,” he said. “As a Canadian company, there is a strong focus on First Nations inclusion.” Hatch Mott MacDonald, for instance, has been a participant in a number of science fairs and job fairs, encouraging

people to study sciences and mathematics. “It’s really the long term perspective. If you want engineers – and that’s what we do, hire engineers – and you want them in six years, you will have to go to the schools today,” said Pietralla. Hatch and Hatch Mott MacDonald also provided the Minerva Foundation with $15,000 to hold workshops in the Nass Valley in support of the foundation’s effort to develop leadership skills in women. The foundation, with offices in Vancouver, has as its goal to increase the number of women in leadership roles.

Legacy WHEN individuals use equal parts of vision, determination and even stubbornness mixed with arm-twisting, good things can happen. Such was the case with Mamie Kerby and Ed Curell. Kerby, who passed away Feb. 25, was at the forefront (with the able assistance of husband Fred) of the founding of a society in 1983 which resulted in Heritage Park Museum, the collection of log buildings gathered from around the area. In addition to the buildings, Kerby sought to preserve artifacts, documents and photographs, providing a foundation for understanding the history of the area. Down the hill from Heritage Park, and occupying one corner of George Little Park, is the Terrace Public Library, the working home, until he retired in 2008 after 29 years, of Ed Curell who passed away a week after Kerby. Constructed as a Canadian centennial project, Curell helped guide an expansion in 1995, firmly establishing the library as a place of reading, learning and enjoyment. An innovator when it came to the introduction of computers, video, CDs and DVDs, Curell expanded the library’s client base. It’s easy to use – and overuse – the word legacy, but it’s a fitting description for the accomplishments of Kerby and Curell. As the area moves toward an uncertain future, what Kerby and Curell leave behind is comforting and solid, the very fabric that makes up a community. ESTABLISHED APRIL 27, 1988

ith no proactive by-law in place to guide them, city council finds themselves snared in a tangle of permit variances for LED signs. Having already given permission for Boston Pizza to install blinking signs that assault drivers’ eyeballs, council March 10 gave permission for Your Decor to put up a bright sign with moving images opposite Tim Hortons on Keith Avenue. Council granted this variance despite ICBC’s report that the Tim Horton’s intersection already has the highest incidence of traffic accidents. Putting up a winking sign will add one more distraction for motorists. As a senior, keeping my attention on the traffic light, parched drivers intent on turning in for a Roll Up the Rim, and gauging the possibility of jump-the-gun drivers, all I need is one more moving object to filter out. Maybe council looks upon LED signs as a subtle way to thin the ever-burgeoning ranks of Terrace seniors? A surreptitious means of easing demand for long term care beds? For senior housing?

CLAUDETTE SANDECKI Studies show a higher incidence of traffic accidents near bright signs, according to a report in The Terrace Standard. LED flashing signs in the Skeena Mall trouble me not a whit, since they are off to one side away from intersecting traffic lanes. But to permit a flashing sign at one of the busiest intersections in town, an intersection already with a proven, higher than average incidence of traffic accidents? What was council thinking? Speaking only for myself, flashing signs won’t lure me to an establishment. If anything, I may re-route to avoid

them. Flashing signs outside stores rank right up there with booming background in-store music, Unnecessarily loud music is irritating, not to mention physically troublesome to some customers. I know two people who suffer disorientation and balance problems if they spend much time shopping in a supermarket with high decibel music. Yet management has pooh-poohed their requests to lower the volume. On successive visits to one supermarket I’ve noticed each time around 11 a.m. the same vapid lyrics whine, no doubt a rewind tape of some sort, broadcast so loud if I meet a friend in some departments our conversation is drowned.. The “music” also interferes when I seek direction from an employee to find a particular item I rarely if ever buy in that store. If I can’t locate what I want to buy, chalk up one lost sale. I realize my failure to buy one or two products if I can’t locate them by myself won’t bankrupt the company, but how many similar potential sales might the company lose across Canada owing to its chain saw level “music”?


A few employees have told me they, too, would prefer a quieter workplace. But they dare not protest to management. I don’t bother to try. If I must shop a store with deafening music, my coping ploy is to carry a list and stick to it. That way I can whip through the store grabbing only what I came for, and exit with dispatch. Meandering and strolling about I reserve for the library or book store, neither of which pummels my ears with unbidden background noise. I understand stores’ relentless hunt to attract new customers and capture more shopping dollars. To achieve that, alerting passing prospects to their presence and wares makes sense ... but not if it puts at risk the safety of motorists distracted by their flashing signs. Assuring customers of quality merchandise at competitive prices will keep them coming back. Always treating a customer courteously and making every reasonable effort to satisfy their shopping quirks will result in free word-of-mouth recommendations, far better, less expensive, and more reliable than any LED sign.

The Mail Bag It’s Gerry’s turn to know better

Cardiac arrest Dear Sir: Allow me the opportunity to laud the City of Terrace for their concern for my continuing good health. I would be the first to admit that during the winter months I lead a somewhat sedentary lifestyle, never a good thing. And while Mother Nature tried to help by dumping a foot and a half of snow March 7-March 8, the city recognized that shovelling that fluffy powder was hardly going to give me the cardiovascular workout I really needed. So sometime during the night it carefully deposited a quantity of wet, heavy snow at the end of my driveway. Of course, I may take a less kind view of their efforts should I have a heart attack while hacking through that windrow. Malcolm Baxter, Terrace, B.C. (Editor’s note: The city does subsidize windrow snow removal for seniors and those with disabilities. Call 250-635-6311.)


Dear Sir: Gerry Martin in his “Rob should know better” letter to the editor of March 5 commits the same sins he accuses Rob Brown of committing in Rob’s Feb. 12 Skeena Anger column regarding Enbridge’s Janet Holder. Being against the Enbridge pipeline does not make one an “avid antifossil fuel zealot” anymore than being against dangerous driving makes anyone against cars. Gerry makes the distorted and ill-conceived argument that because we all drive fossil fuel consuming vehicles, we are all complicit in the pipeline’s construction in some moral way. Morality implies a choice. We have little to none. Our society is designed for car use and neither industry nor government has felt it good policy to create alternatives despite obvious popular support. Blaming citizens is like blaming those who have to remain in a smokefilled room for contracting cancer. He goes on to encourage us “to stay positive and find a constructive way toward meeting our need for oil products, our interest in economic strength … and our non-negotiable demand for environmental protection.” This neatly sidesteps the point that the pipeline is not to meet our need for oil products. We don’t even refine our oil. The pipeline will require a one-

third increase in tar sands extraction to meet foreign needs, not domestic. This increase, by furthering our development as a resource extraction economy, will in fact weaken our ability to perform as a healthy and diverse economy as it will hurt our manufacturing sector, (where the good jobs are). The true winners are the foreign companies that own the tar sands who simply want to move the bitumen to themselves so that they can make more money. But Gerry’s remark about the environment is most puzzling of all. Is he saying that we have to accept the possibility of environmental damage to our watershed and coast as an acceptable cost of doing such ill-conceived business? Also, is he completely ignoring the climate change effect of extraction? I am sure Janet Holder is a fine person. But she is also a senior executive charged with getting a pipeline built across a province whose people don’t want it. The message of the many Janet-featured ads is that she will look after us. Reassuring but untrue, as is the assertion that we can make the pipeline and the shipping sufficiently safe. When Janet Holder dresses up as a fisherman, she’s selling snake oil. She should keep it in Alberta. Robert Hart, Terrace, B.C.

Citizens should decide on term limits

ifty years ago municipal councils were elected to one year terms. Forty years ago the law was changed to allow for two-year terms. Twenty-four years ago terms were extended to three years, and now councils are to be elected to serve four year terms. The reasons for every term extension were to reduce election costs, to give new councillors more time to learn the duties of their office, and to increase voter participation. On this last point, with voter participation at less than 28 per cent province-wide in the last election, extending terms has been an abysmal failure. A Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) task force four years ago compared the arguments for and against extending council terms from three to four years. The study’s criteria were accessibility, efficiency, and transparency. The discussion paper’s question of principle was: “Does extending the term of office serve or hinder the principles of transparency, efficiency and ac-

countability?” As it relates to the Community Charter’s principles, purposes, and interpretation of municipal governance, that question is irrelevant. Ten years ago the Legislative Assembly replaced the Local Government Act with the Community Charter. This brought about a fundamental change to the legal foundation for local government in British Columbia. The purpose of an act is to prescribe dos and don’ts that must be obeyed … or else! By contrast, a charter’s purpose is to establish rights, powers, privileges, or functions granted by the sovereign power of the state to a person, corporation, city, or other unit of local organization. The roles of an act are of a regulatory nature; the roles of a charter are of a constitutional nature. As the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is a constitutional guarantee of rights for Canadians, so the Community Charter is a constitutional guarantee of powers granted to municipal governments. Section 1 of the Community

g u e s t c o mm e n t

ANDRE CARREL Charter establishes the principles for municipal government in British Columbia: Municipalities and their councils are recognized as an order of government within their jurisdiction that: (a) Is democratically elected, autonomous, responsible and accountable, (b) Is established and continued by the will of the residents of their communities, and (c) Provides for the municipal

purposes of their communities. Canada’s Constitution establishes a maximum term of five years for provincial legislative assemblies without prescribing fixed terms and fixed dates for provincial elections. Every province has the constitutional right to schedule elections and to establish term limits within the constitution’s 5-year limit. It would be consistent with constitutional principles for the Community Charter to set out a maximum term municipal councils may serve, leaving individual municipalities with the right to schedule elections and establish terms in accordance with local preferences. How is the autonomy, responsibility, and accountability of a municipal council served, much less strengthened by provincially imposed terms and election dates? What benefit do residents from Pouce Coupe to Greenwood derive from holding simultaneous municipal elections? What harm would their communities suffer if residents of Terrace held their municipal

elections on the first Sunday of April every two years while the residents of Duncan held theirs on that last Tuesday of November every four years? The Community Charter should establish a maximum term for municipal councils just as the Constitution does for provincial legislative assemblies and the House of Commons. To be true to the Community Charter’s principles, every municipal council should have the right, subject to ratification by its residents, to establish the term of office for their mayor and councillors, and to set the date for their election. The Community Charter declares municipal councils to be autonomous, responsible, accountable, and established by the will of the residents of their community. Arguments about accessibility, efficiency, and transparency notwithstanding, imposing province-wide election dates and terms makes a mockery of these principles.

Stop hydro projects now An open letter to: Bill Bennett, Minister of Energy

Dear Sir: The Enbridge Corporation through numbered corporate entities is proposing to construct as many as nine run of river hydro projects locally. The largest project would be on the Clore River, a tributary of the Zymoetz (Copper) River downstream of the confluence with the Burnie River. The river is a scenic icon in a region where spectacular scenery is taken for granted. It is the largest, most productive and important summer run steelhead tributary within the Zymoetz River system, which in turn is one of a list of nine intact, iconic, and globally significant summer run steelhead rivers left in British Columbia. Eight of those rivers are in the northwest. No other cluster of rivers in the world hold so much esteem and stature, whether they are rivers where other species such as Atlantic salmon abound or are famous for their trout or Pacific salmon fisheries. The Clore is a river where summer steelhead can be caught on a dry fly as small as a number 14 hook, imitating a “mayfly”. Few places on earth provide such an opportunity, where it is possi-

ble to catch a large, migratory salmon which has returned from the Pacific Ocean in such a delicate and frankly astonishing way. Steelhead, chinook and coho salmon, resident rainbow and bull trout all spawn and rear for part of their life cycle in this river along with various other indigenous species such as rocky mountain and pygmy white fish, and prickly sculpin. The run of river study section of Clore River is a kayakers’ delight. This is where kayaking is as good as it gets. To tinker and manipulate the water flows of this river could be tragic. Enbridge has no idea how special and important this river is. It is interesting to note that the corporation proposal document makes no reference to consultation with the public or mention of the environmental assessment process that we understand has to kick in for a project generating more than 50 megawatts of electrical. The company has also made no effort to inform the public about its proposal. It has shown limited knowledge of fish species in the watershed and no concern for those who have tourism operations and are dependent upon the Clore fisheries as part of their

business or for the many resident anglers who treasure the recreation the river provides. The project is a money grab and is shocking when it was clear that a previous company also wanted to build on this river and bowed out because of the controversy they would have created over the impact upon salmon and steelhead. The second project proposal, again by a numbered Enbridge Company is planned for Williams Creek the largest tributary feeding into the Lakelse River Watershed. The creek is a small river that flows into Lakelse Lake. It is the primary salmon spawning and rearing tributary where the majority of the sockeye salmon spawn, along with large numbers of coho salmon, steelhead, some chinook salmon, cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, dolly varden char and bull trout as well as variety of other indigenous river species. This project proposal to the best of our knowledge is located in the headwaters or on a large tributary stream. We were unable to pinpoint the exact location because the information in the document was rather vague. Native dolly varden, whitefish and other non-migratory species inhabit the upper watershed including nuW!


merous small tributary streams where waterfalls are barriers to migratory species. The upper river and tributary streams water flows are a crucial element in the maintenance of sufficient and natural water flows for lower and middle Williams Creek. A partnership between the DFO, the Kitselas First Nation, local residents and conservation organizations is carrying out an extensive, long term rebuilding program for Lakelse sockeye and Williams Creek is where the primary focus for these salmon is taking place. No amount of hiding, manipulation or compensation can replace what mother nature has created. These two projects would be devastating and for that reason should not be considered for construction. They should be disbanded before further study and planning has been expended. Your consideration of our reasoning and concern for the two watersheds and the importance they hold for British Columbians and tourist anglers from around the world is crucial. It is very unethical and disturbing that Enbridge through its ongoing glossy TV Ads wants the B.C. public to support construction of its oil pipeline from

Alberta to Kitimat. The video scenes of fly fishing, marine areas, river valleys and mountain backdrops and underwater photos of steelhead and sockeye salmon is hypocritical knowing full well that their various energy operations will alter and impact fish and wildlife habitats. These two hydro projects will not provide firm electrical power, will be damaging to the environment and tourism and will exacerbate the high cost of purchasing private power along with increasing the BC Hydro debt load.

Message is lost when companies can’t communicate Dear Sir: Editions of the past weeks have treated Terrace Standard subscribers to yet another expensive full page advertisement for the Northern Gateway Pipeline, introducing Janet Holder and talking about how she will be sharing details behind a number of the Joint Review Panel’s 209 conditions over the coming weeks. One ad was headed “As a proud British Columbian, protecting our coast is one of our greatest priorities.” Who in this sentence is the proud British Columbian? Does this singular noun modify the verbal ‘protecting’ or the possessive plural pronoun ‘our’? Or is Janet Holder merely assuming Crown prerogative and using the Royal Our? I know of many First Nations who would be alarmed by this, especially in view of Northern Gateway’s dismal attempt to fulfill the crown’s duty to consult. One of the common traits I have observed in petroleum industry executives is their inability to communicate with precision, a failing which causes misunderstandings that severely detract from the effectiveness of their message. Chris Peter, Prince George, B.C.

Improve Your own “Investment envIronment” As a citizen of the world, you may have a keen interest in protecting your physical surroundings. That’s certainly a concern for many especially as we near Earth Day on April 22. As someone trying to reach long-term financial goals, such as a comfortable retirement, you’re probably also interested in improving your own investment environment. So here are a few suggestions: Respond to enviRonmental factoRs Over the past few years, we’ve had a favorable investment climate, marked by low inflation, low interest rates and generally strong corporate profits. And investors who taken advantage of this positive environment have, Kevin Marleau have for the most part, been rewarded. But things can change, Financial Advisor so it’s always a good idea to understand the current investment environment, as it may affect your investment choices. For example, if it seems likely that long-term interest rates are going to rise significantly, you might need to review your long-term bond holdings, as their price would be negatively affected by a rise in rates. nuRtuRe youR investments One area of environmentalism involves planting seeds or saplings and nurturing them to maturity. You can do the same thing with investments — and a good way to nurture them is to give them time to grow in all investment climates. But how long should you hold these investments? You might heed the advice of Warren Buffett, one of the world’s most famous investors, who says this about his investment company: “Our favorite holding period is forever.” It takes patience to follow the buy-and-hold strategy favored by Mr. Buffett — and it also requires the discipline necessary to keep investing through the inevitable downturns you will encounter. But over the long term, your perseverance may well be rewarded. avoid “toxic” investment stRategies Unfortunately, many human activities are bad for the environment. Similarly, some investment strategies are “toxic” for your prospects of success. Consider the pursuit of “hot” stocks. They sound inviting, but, by the time you hear about them, they may have lost their sizzle — and in any case, they might not be right for your needs. Here’s another “poisonous” investment strategy: trying to “time” the market. If you’re always jumping in and out of the market, looking for “low” points to buy and “high” points to sell, you’ll probably be wrong most of the time — because nobody can accurately predict highs and lows. Even more importantly, you may find yourself out of the market during the beginning of a rally, which is when the biggest gains tend to occur. diveRsify youR “species” of investments Drawing inspiration from Earth Day, the United Nations has designated 2011– 2020 as the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity. And, just as preserving the diversification of species is important for life on Earth, the diversification of your investment portfolio is essential for its health. By owning a variety of investments — stocks, bonds, securities, Guaranteed Income Certificates (GICs) and so on — you can help protect yourself from downturns that primarily affect just one asset class. (Keep in mind, though, that while diversification can reduce the effects of volatility on your holdings, it can’t guarantee profits or protect against loss.) Earth Day happens just once a year — but the lessons of environmentalism can help you, as an investor, for all the days and years ahead. Member Canadian Investor Protection Fund

Church up for sale ONE OF the older church congregations in Terrace has put up its building and property for sale. Christ Lutheran Church, on the corner of Sparks and Park, has been at the location since the mid-1950s and will note its 60th anniversary this year. Church official Gordon Watmough cited declining attendance and the age of its congregation members as the reason. “There are few of us left and as we die off, there’s one less,” he said. Average attendance varies between 8 and 16, depending upon the occasion, said Watmough. The church has been without a full time pastor for years but does celebrate communion once a month through retired Anglican minister Lance Stephens. Watmough said the decision to sell was a hard one to make. “My wife Bertha has been involved there since she was 14,” Watmough added. Affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, Christ Lutheran Church established itself in the 1950s thanks to the arrival in the area of Scandinavian and German families. Watmough said the congregation will meet later this month to fully discuss its plans. The asking price for the building and the one-third of an acre property is $465,000.

Hate crime probe stymied for now AN investigation into what police have described as a hate crime involving an assault on an individual has been concluded for now. “No arrests were made. If more information is received, the investigation will be reopened,” said Terrace RCMP Constable Angela Rabut of a Dec. 3, 2013 incident in which four men attacked another man near the Suwilaawks School in the 3400 Block of Straume Ave. The man, who was walking home from work, suffered minor injuries when he was assaulted by four men wearing black balaclavas. The group approached the victim from the courtyard of Suwilaawks School on the 3400 block of Straume, said police. Two men punched the victim while two stood by and watched. The victim was knocked to the ground but managed to get back up and escape, running out of the north side of the schoolyard then fleeing north on Sparks St. and west on Straume Ave., said police. His attackers gave up chase on Straume, said police. “Information obtained during the investigation, specifically what was said by the assailants, led police to believe this was a crime

motivated by hate,” said Rabut last week. She did not reveal the circumstances leading police to conclude the incident was a hate crime. Police had been in contact with a RCMP specialized hate crime unit on the lower mainland as part of the investigation. “They compile this information for British Columbia, which could help in identifying a suspect. They also provide guidance where necessary,” said Rabut. The suspects were described as wearing hoodies, one orange and one a plain grey non-winter type, said police. Two were more than 6 feet tall, two had smaller builds and one of the men had big eyes. “We encourage anybody with information in regards to this crime to come forward to the Terrace RCMP or you can remain anonymous and report the information via Crime Stoppers,” said Rabut. People with information on crime can contact the Terrace RCMP at (250)638-7400 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, online at or by texting TERRACE plus your message to 274637 (CRIMES). You may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2000.

Young Legionnaires welcomed By Mary Ann Misfeldt

The March 11, 2014 general meeting of Branch 13, The Royal Canadian Legion saw a good sized turnout for the special evening Northwestern Zone Commander Doug Misfeldt was in attendance to install the new executive for the coming year.

Comrade Les Annandale, as acting president, welcomed the initiates into the comradeship of the Royal Canadian Legion following Comrade Secretary Francois Godet's explanations of the purposes and objects of the Legion. All members present gave their new comrades a warm welcome. It was a pleasure to see so many younger people joining what is sometimes erroneously referred to as an old persons club. Terrace Legion will be hosting the meeting for the northwestern zone of the Legion on the weekend of April 26. All members are encouraged to attend the meeting which convenes at 9 a.m., April 26. There will be a steak night and all members and bonafide guests are welcome to attend whether or not they were at the meeting.

The branch is planning a spring garage sale again this year. Donations are welcome. The precise date will be advertised very soon. The Ladies Auxiliary will be holding a pie sale in the branch on April 12. Members and guests are urged to come and get their desert and support the branch. Wednesday evening is drop in darts and Thursday evening is drop in crib and Saturday afternoon drop in pool as ongoing events for members and guests. In remembrance of those who gave their all the executive and members of Terrace, Branch 13 of The Royal Canadian Legion continue to devote much of their lives to the care of veterans and support to our community.

Homeless mother moving to Ferry Island By JOSH MASSEY A MOTHER of four in South Hazelton says she’s going to set up camp at Ferry Island by this weekend because she can’t find an affordable place to live. Anna Martin says she and her children have no choice but to live in a van. Martin is abandoning her current rental home in South Hazelton because her family has been suffering health problems related to severe mold issues. “It has no insulation and nothing but sawdust in the walls and a rotten foundation,” she said. After being unable to find a place to stay in her home town of Greenville or anywhere else nearby including Smithers and Terrace, Martin says she phoned emergency shelters as a last resort but was told there was no availability for her family. “We even tried the Terrace shelter but we can’t get in there and we have no family or friends to live with. We are going to be homeless here by the twentyfirst of March,” Martin said last week. “I tried the Smithers shelter too and they won’t take us. We are going to be living out of our van. The only thing I can think of is in Terrace where the RV park is. Ferry Island.” Martin said Ksan shelter would only let her stay a few days, not long enough to find a new rental. “We’re just packing up right now,” Martin added, who has four children aged ten, seven, five and four. “We’ll have to make do,” she said about living in her van with four kids. According to Carol Sabo, director of Terrace’s shelter, Ksan House, the Ksan transition house does take interim housing for short periods but that Martin’s situation shows how dire the situation can be for families without housing. “It is the reality now – especially for families,” said Sabo, who is currently seeking to advance a project to build affordable housing units on city land. “Singles we can roll out the mats at night at the shelter but if the transition house is full

with women fleeing abuse there aren’t any real options for families,” she said. Martin said that specifically she wasn’t allowed into the woman’s shelter. Sabo has the follow-

ing advice for homeless families: “I would encourage families, if they are homeless, or about to become homeless, to fill out a BC Housing application (off the internet or an agency

that can print it out for them). We, and other agencies, can fill out a supplemental form that verifies the situation they are in and they can be placed in a BC Housing building where there is a vacancy some-

where in the province. I know a couple weeks ago Rupert and Burns Lake had some vacancies. That would mean moving schools, doctors, etc. though – not a nice situation to be in.” Martin said she has

been on the BC Housing waiting list for three years. She is currently still trying to contact her family to find a resolution to her problem before Saturday. “We’ve been living with mold for the last

four years and having health problems because of this,” she said. Last summer Terrace instated a bylaw which gives the city the power to fine landlords for mold violations to prevent such conditions.

TERRACE RCMP say numerous minor girls have been victimized by a group of 10 boys between the ages of 12 to 16 who sent and received sexually explicit images and who also engaged in cyberbullying. “Numerous people were spoken with on numerous occasions,” says RCMP Constable Angela Rabut of a lengthy and complex investigation which began last October when an image sent to a boy was then shared. The investigation involved the Skeena Middle School, Caledonia Senior Secondary, the school district, the Ksan Society, police victims services, provincial youth and mental health workers and the Terrace Minor Hockey Association. Rabut did note that not all of the boys involved were hockey players. Most of the boys were referred to the Terrace Community

Justice Forum Group in which some of their victims and families also took part, she said. The forum, made up of community members, is a form of restorative justice in which offenders are encouraged to take responsibility for their actions and to learn from their actions. What sanctions that may have followed have not been released. “The boys/families that refused to take part in the forum do not have the closure that the forum provided for those that did take part,” said Rabut. When asked why police did not pursue more formal criminal charges, Rabut said officers and others used their discretion. “Police are empowered to consider circumstances before making any decisions to lay charges or to proceed in some other way. Discretion means considering what is in the best inter-

ests of everyone responsible for an affected by a criminal event. This decision is not made alone,” said Rabut. As to the general issue of sexual exploitation of youth by youth by electronic means or otherwise, Rabut called for a community approach. “This has to be led by parents working with teachers, school administration, coaches, and police to hold youth accountable for their behavior and in prevention and education strategies,” said Rabut. The officer has conducted a number of workshops inside and outside of schools on the issue. The full RCMP release on this specific sexting investigation, along with information for parents and others, can be found on the news section of The Terrace Standard website at www.

The 120 megawatt Clore run-of-river project would use a 47 kilometre long 230 kilovolt transmission line to connect to the BC Hydro grid, reads the report. The location of that line is not yet known. “Enbridge is very early in the process for this potential project, and has done little work on a specific proposal beyond obtaining the preliminary license,” said Giesbrecht, speaking to the Clore project. “No Enbridge employees have visited the site and no survey work has begun.” Enbridge has been made aware of concerns around fish species in the Clore River, he confirmed. “We would need to do a full consultation with local experts, aboriginal communities and those folks living around the river and full environmen-


tal assessments would need to be done before we could move forward,” he said. It’s entirely possible none of the projects will go through, he said. “We’re at that stage where we’re just looking to see if a) we want to proceed, and b) which ones would ... pass any type of economic or environmental feasibility review,” said Giesbrecht. But area angling activists want Enbridge to stop studying the projects now. “We’re not going down any middle road, we’re not interested in any damage to our rivers,” said steelhead society chair Jim Culp. “[The Clore] is a summer run steelhead river. There’s not many of them left in the world.” Roger Carling-Kelly of Northwest Massage Therapy wishes to announce the closing of his practice

NOW HAS SPACES AVAILABLE. Accepting applications for all ages. Open Mon. to Fri. 8:00am to 5:30pm. After school care available - Subsidy accepted. Fully Licenced - located on Dairy Ave., Terrace

Please call Naoise at 250-635-8889 for more information.

I wish to thank the community of Terrace, who for 27 years have supported my practice. The various Doctors, Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, and other Massage Therapists, the clients, and the many friends made. I wish to give you a heartfelt thank you. It has been a privilege to be part of this wonderful community and to have served you. Farewell and God Bless you all, Roger and family

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

Dorothy May Sieben

Feb. 19, 1928 - Feb. 15, 2014 We regret to announce the passing of Dorothy May Sieben on February 15, 2014, after a month in Smithers hospital, with her daughters at her side.  Dorothy was born in Terrace on February 19, 1928, to Edgar and May Cole, and lived there until her move to Smithers after her beloved husband Greg  died in 1995.  She was also predeceased by her loving son Reg and grandson Joey, sister Joyce, and brothers Ron and Edgar.    She will be greatly missed by her family,  her four devoted daughters, Dorinda Blackstock (Bob), Sandra Harder (Harold), Dorene McIntyre (Craig), Yvonne Wittke (Scott), 14 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren.  She was looking forward to her 19th due soon.  She is also survived by her loving sister Shirley Houle, and special niece and nephew Dorothy Kuemper (Ernie) and Eddie Gleason (Rose), and many more extended loving family members.   Despite loss and sorrows, Dorothy’s great faith in God helped her live life with joy.  She was enthusiastic about everything, whether it was teaching Sunday school, her love of music, gardening, letter writing, reading, playing games  or just spending time with family and friends. She lived life with a passion and taught her family to stop and ‘smell the roses’. She had a wonderful sense of humour and enjoyed a good laugh and loved to make others laugh too.  Dorothy was devoted to her family and loved cooking and baking for them, organizing picnics and summer days at the lake, making  so many special memories for her grandchildren. They will never forget her and her delicious  warm homemade doughnuts. She was thankful for wonderful new friendships in her later years and cherished her lifelong friends, many who still live in Terrace.   A celebration of her life will be held in Terrace on Sunday, May 18th, at 2:00 pm at the Terrace Pentecostal Church, open to all family and friends with a tea to follow.    Special thanks  to our sister Yvonne and husband Scott for the wonderful years they gave to mom in Smithers and for the tender care Dr. Kotze and nurses gave mom in her final month in hospital.   ‘We will enter His gates with thanksgiving and praise’.   Til we meet again, mom.

new coast Mountains School District superintendent Katherine McIntosh, middle, was the recipient of a traditional greeting by drummers from the Suwilaawks Community School at a school board meeting in Terrace March 12.

Drummers give greeting to school superintendent The Coast Mountains School District’s (CMSD) new superintendent visited Terrace last week, meeting with district officials and receiving an official welcome at the March 12 school board meeting. Members of the Suwilaawks Community School drummers were on hand at the school board office, performing three songs to welcome Katherine McIntosh, who will take over as superintendent of School District 82 at the end of this school year. “I’m so honoured to be here on your traditional territory,” said McIntosh to the Suwi-

laawks’ students. “I’m very excited to work with you when I arrive.” McIntosh, now the assistant superintendent for School District 85 based in Port Hardy on Vancouver Island, says she is here for the longterm and has already secured housing. She’s been in Port Hardy for six years and before that was in Powell River on the Sunshine Coast for 11 years. She and her husband love rural communities, said McIntosh, and Terrace appealed to her partly because of all of opportunities to be part of changes here.

To that end, she connected the district with Jay Yule, longtime superintendent at the Powell River School District, who gave a presentation to the board at the meeting outlining the trades and technical training program that has been in operation at that district for nearly a decade. Yule’s district partnered with First Nations, post-secondary institutions, government and industry to offer certificate programs in areas such as trades and culinary arts, in an attempt to “make education more relevant” to students in the area,

and has seen graduation rates increase and satisfaction rates climb, he said. “You’re way ahead of where we are,” said school board chair Art Erasmus to Yule. “But certainly you can see some of the things that can happen and we look forward to talking to you some more and picking your brain.” McIntosh takes over from outgoing superintendent Nancy Wells, who has been with the district since 2010. Wells first took over as interim superintendent and has had her contract extended several times.

“Northern Gateway is taking extraordinary measures to ensure marine safety—reducing tanker speeds on British Columbia’s north coast is just one.” - Chris Anderson, Master Mariner, Lead Marine Advisor, Northern Gateway Project

Chris Anderson is a Master Mariner and port planning and operations specialist. He has substantial experience in the assessment and development of many terminal facilities on the Arctic, Atlantic, and Pacific Coasts of Canada.

Northern Gateway has proposed tanker-related safety measures designed to maintain safe vessel transportation. These measures, together with lower tanker transit speeds in the coastal channels, not only reduce the risk of marine incidents, they also minimize potential adverse effects on the marine mammal environment. ACTING ON EXPERT ADVICE Northern Gateway has consulted with many of the top experts in Canada and the world, including Chris Anderson who, as a Master Mariner and seafarer, has over 50 years of experience including the development of port and terminal facilities in British Columbia’s coastal waters and internationally. Acting on the advice of a team of experts, Northern Gateway committed to a vessel transit speed range from 8 to 12 knots. Anderson says, “Reducing vessel transit speeds through a confined channel to within this range allows improved response from our escort tugs, substantially reducing the risk of a navigational incident, while maintaining safe vessel operation.”

initiatives that was put forward by Northern Gateway. As Anderson puts it, “Project-related vessels are capable of speeds of 15 to 16 knots. Many other oceangoing vessels can travel at even higher speeds. Northern Gateway is committed to reducing vessel speeds by as much as half that as an added measure of prevention.” GOING EVEN FURTHER TO ENSURE MARINE SAFETY In addition to reducing tanker speeds, Northern Gateway has committed to the use of two escort tugs for every loaded tanker associated with the Project, with one tug being tethered at all times. According to Anderson, “In the event of a mechanical issue, the tethered escort tugs can take over steering and braking which greatly reduces the risk of an incident occurring. This commitment will also help protect British Columbia’s north coast.”

BEYOND WHAT’S REQUIRED The commitment to reducing transit speeds is not a regulatory requirement, but one of many voluntary marine safety

ENDORSED AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS The Joint Review Panel’s endorsement of the Northern Gateway Project came after a rigorous, scientific review of the evidence, including Gateway’s precautionary approach to vessel speeds and escort tug standards. Northern Gateway is working hard to meet all of the final conditions set out by the Panel, the same way they are working to meet the five conditions set out by the Province of British Columbia. Northern Gateway is committed to doing everything possible in order to build a safer, better project.

Cambodian school gets ‘plugged in’ VERITAS STUDENTS learned how their going without electronics for one week helped a school in Cambodia get some much-needed technology. In February, the students and their families went “unplugged” for one week to see what life is like without the technology that we use every day and in doing so, raised $2,004 for a school in Cambodia where Veritas teacher Trina Botelho is teaching for a year. “I am so touched by the outpouring of your love on these little ones here in Cambodia. The children were completely shocked that other children, from another country, who don’t even know them, would be so willing to help and give,” said Botelho in a letter to the school here. “Their small faces were so filled with excitement and they could barely contain themselves!” For the year, Botelho is teaching English, basic business and social skills to women ages 18 to 25 at the Don Bosco school in Phnom Penh, Cambodia where she lives with the students and the Salesian nuns, who also teach there. She got word back to Veritas that the school was in need of a TV or other such technology to help with the students’ education. The $2,004 raised bought several items for the school: a large television, which will be used to help teach the children using clips from the internet, to teach them songs/dances and help them with pronunciation of English, etc.; three small speakers with USBs to use in the classrooms when they are practicing English and Khmer, the Cambodian language, dialogues etc.; a microphone and wiring of a sound system so when they have assemblies, the children can hear the teachers clearly; and a laptop for the school secretary. “When I went to the school to help present all of the gifts you gave, they couldn’t stop expressing their thankfulness,” said Botelho in her letter. “They continually ran up to me in groups saying, ‘thank you teacher, thank you, thank you, thank you so much!’ “All those thank yous are for you! All the students from Chreh School are very poor and they have nothing to give you in return. However, you can be assured of their prayers for you and their deep gratitude. I am so proud to be a part of such an amazing and generous community. Your kindness and giving hearts will never be forgotten here in Cambodia.” Botelho said she will keep the school updated about how the technology is being used. “I am so thankful not only for your large donation but for your efforts in abstaining from using technology for a week,” her letter continued. “I know how difficult that can be for us who are used to using technology multiple times daily. Thank you for sacrificing and taking the time to experience a piece of what life is like in a third world country.”


BEN MCDANIEL, front, was recognized for excellence in acting at the Northwest Zone High School Drama Festival. The play, One-Lane Bridge, won awards for set, costumes, lightning, sound and best play, qualifying the Cal students for provincials. From left, the rest of the cast is Morgan Lechner, Mattea Broadway, Brittany Wagner, Nina Gordon, and Jamie Sparks.

Cal rehearses for provincials CALEDONIA DRAMA students topped the awards at the Northwest Zone High School Drama Festival in Prince Rupert. Ben McDaniel was recognized for excellence in acting in One-Lane Bridge.


JACK ARMSTRONG is ready to play on his own hockey rink, which was his wish from the Make-aWish Foundation.

The play, directed by Robin Macleod, received awards for set, costumes, lighting, sound, and best play; the last award means the play was chosen to represent the zone at provincials in New Westminster in May.

And Cal’s play Twitch, directed by Graham Wojdak, saw Brielle Dorais Fleming and Zach Pflum receive honourable mentions for acting. Bailey Brown and Mikayla Seaton ran sound and lights for both plays.

Both plays will be performed here as a fundraiser at the end of April with the money raised going to help pay for the trip to provincials, which includes getting 13 people and the play’s set to New Westminster.

Boy gets his wish granted A LOCAL boy who’s spent the past two years undergoing treatment for leukemia has had his wish granted by the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Jack Armstrong, who was diagnosed with the most common type of leukemia in children, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, just eight days after his third birthday in February 2012, received what he wanted most this past February. “Jack just got his wish last month. There were a few glitches in the production and it was revealed to him last minute,” said his mom Taryn. “He got his very own synthetic  ice rink in the backyard....perfect for the hockey nut he is.” When he was two-and-a-half, he had “ice” on his wish list to Santa, and has always had a love for hockey so when he got to make a wish there was no question as to what he wanted: his own mini rink, said Taryn. “He starts kindergarten in September and has enjoyed his first year of hockey in Timbits,” she added. Jack will be finished chemo treatment in May 2015. Afterward, he will still have to get monthly blood tests, stay on oral medication and make visits to Vancouver on a regular basis but at least the bulk of the nasty stuff will be finished, said Taryn.

TLT takes risqué romp what do you get when you put a recently unemployed couple, a messenger girl, a cameraman and sleazy guy in a room together? You get Skin Flick, Terrace Little Theatre’s (TLT) dinner theatre production opening this week. The Norm Foster play is very, very funny and any “action” takes place off-stage, says director Chris Stone. And it welcomes back some former TLT alumni, who took several years off. Debbie Haynes, last seen in Bedtime Stories four years ago, returns to play Daphne and Amy Spencer, last on stage as a young girl, returns to play Jill, a messenger girl who ends up being the star of the film. Daphne and husband Rollie, played by Brent Nixon, in financial straits after losing their jobs, decide to make an adult film to cash in. When Jill appears

So far, I’ve looked at econo cars at the lower end of the market. No point in me offering price details because all Euro cars are substantially more expensive than the same examples sold here in Canada. Finally, I cast a close eye over the Audi S1, which is a hot sportback version of the popular A1. It comes with a 228hp 2.0-litre turbocharged gas engine capable of hitting 100 km/h in less than six seconds. I will reveal it will sell for more than $40,000 in the UK. It’s fast, it’s a premium offering and I’ll eat my hat if it shows up here. All of the above have great fuel economy going for them and most are competitively priced. The common keys to their success likely come down to two key factors. Impressive fuel consumption numbers matter because fuel in Europe is substantially more expensive than here. And Europe is crawling with folks going about their daily duties on often far less land and road space. While there is a greater acceptance of smaller vehicles in our cities, people outside urban areas have more ground to cover and so are tempted by larger vehicles, especially as a first family vehicle. And the truth is that the advances in fuel saving technology means there’s not a massive difference between the econo-cars and small family sedans. And perhaps a bigger factor is for “an extra $20 a month, madam, you could have the roominess and utility of this car.” A line heard in most dealerships, most days. And the sales people are not wrong.

Classic lookalikes sell at (almost) bargain prices by Rob Sass

The Pebble Beach auctions are generally not the place for bargain hunters. It’s nothing unusual for $300 million in automotive merchandise to change hands with some lots bringing more than $10 million and a staggering 100-plus cars capable of cracking the $1 million mark. Just 20 or 30 years ago, many of these cars were attainable to people of ordinary means. So what’s an ordinary mortal whose been priced out of the Ferrari and Cobra market to do? Look at some alternatives that provide 90 percent of the bang for 5 percent of the buck. Here are some of

our favorites: 1963 Shelby Cobra/1992 Dodge Viper: Everybody loves a Cobra. Carroll Shelby’s idea of stuffing an American V-8 in a lightweight British sports car was an instant hit. The trouble is, if you didn’t buy one in the early 1980s when they were about $30,000, your chances of acquiring one are pretty slim for much less than a million. So, instead of a Cobra replica you’ll always have to make excuses for, why not buy its spiritual successor, the Dodge Viper? Early examples of this V-10 powered, raw and uncompromising, car can still be had for less than what Cobras were selling for 30 years ago. 1967 Ferrari 275 GTS/4 N.A.R.T.

Spider/Intermeccanica Italia: One example recently sold for around $17 million. But unknown to most people, it has an American-powered near doppelganger that costs a fraction of the price. Back in the 1960s, Canadian Frank Reisner dreamed of building Ferrarilike GT cars with American V-8 power. His Intermeccanica Italia roadster hit the mark in terms of Ferrari-like style — the bodies were even built in Italy — but in place of a complex and expensive V-12, most had small-block Ford V-8 power, with some tuned by the famous American race shop Holman and Moody. continued on page B9

Confessions of a Curber I was itching to sell another car. I‘d spent my first cash quickly. The new TV looked great in my living room. So I scrounged the dealer lots in my neighbourhood. I found the perfect car at a small dealership not far from my house. Gray with four doors. Everything was still intact, but it was priced low. The dealer gave me the car’s history right away. It had been in three accidents over its lifetime. Nothing too major, but damage was done and repaired. I couldn’t spot the repairs. So, I happily bought it and registered it. I didn’t want my wife and kids to know what I was up to, so I parked it around the block. I knew it would be gone in a few days. This time, I used Kijiji and Craigslist. “Car for sale. Served me well, but wife wants a new car. Accident and damage free. Looking to sell fast, low price. Cash only. Call cell for info.” I got a text message from a woman across town. I told her I’d meet her at a nearby gas station and would throw in a free tank of gas. She was thrilled. When I met her, she told me that she needed a cheap, dependable vehicle to get to her new job. She’dd been taking the bus for weeks and was tired of her commute. To my annoyance, she wanted to check the vehicle thoroughly. So I distracted her. I told her I was sad to let “my baby” go, but I

wanted to keep my wife happy. She nodded sympathetically. As she handed me the money, she asked if the vehicle was in any accidents. Now, I’m not a good liar. So I simply said, No. It’s her fault for not asking for a CarProof or ICBC vehicle history report. That seemed to do it. She was pleased and drove away with a smile on her face. As for me, I went home with a fat wallet. A few days later, I got a text: “Got CarProof report. Three accidents?!?!? Need money back now!!!” I panicked. But not for long. I was getting good at this. I just got a new cell number. She didn’t know my name – that old fake ID worked great. And she had no idea where I lived. Finding me would wear her out. I was in the clear. But will I be so lucky next time? *Curber – An individual posing as a private seller, but selling vehicles for profit as a business.

The Cadillac CTS has captured numerous awards and spearheaded a modern transformation of the iconic American luxury car maker, since its introduction in 2003. The high-powered, highperformance “V” edition can go toe-to-toe with the best of its Euro competitors and has set production car lap records at the renowned Nurburgring, in Germany. Even more important, for used car buyers, the CTS (2011-13) has a very good reliability record, which helped get it a “recommended buy” rating from Consumer Reports. Other pluses include surprisingly good fuel economy numbers (with either V6 engine) and attractive resale values (for buyers). CTS was the first Cadillac to feature that distinctively sharp edge styling that’s now synonymous with the brand and this was taken to another level with the 2008, second generation, redesign. By 2011, the CTS line had grown to include Sport Wagon and Coupe editions, plus “V” editions of both. The 2011 CTS-V Coupe was voted the “Best New Sports / Performance Car over $50,000” by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC). Entry-level editions of the 2011 CTS sedan came with a 3.0-litre (255 horsepower) V6 that’s mated to either a sixspeed manual or automatic transmission. Fuel economy with the 3.0L/ auto powertrain is a frugal 11.3/7.2 L/100 km (city/ highway). The optional 3.6 litre is a 24-valve engine with direct fuel injection that can generate 304 horsepower and fuel economy is 11.4/6.9 L/100 km, which is roughly the same.

The Cadillac CTS has head-turning style and comfort in abundance, but it can also offer a level of performance like no other Cadillac.

The CTS all-wheel drive system runs a 30/70 front-to-rear drive split under normal conditions, to maintain a rear-drive driving dynamic. It’s also capable of delivering up to 100 per cent of torque to either axle when needed and fuel economy-wise it adds about 0.5L/100km, which is reasonable. Moving up to a Vedition of CTS you get a 556-horsepower supercharged V8 engine (from the Corvette) that likes premium fuel and gulps it down a rate of 17.7/10.5 L/100 km (city/highway). Aimed squarely at driving enthusiasts, the go-faster V-edition also comes with high-performance additions such as its Magnetic Ride Control system and a Brembo brake package. The interior is decidedly driver focused, yet still luxurious. In front of the driver is a three-pod instrument cluster with a combination of analog and digital readouts. A centrally positioned chrome-ringed analog time clock adds a touch of elegance and a partially hidden pop-up multiuse monitor is a unique feature. The front bucket seats are generously sized and you sit lower (sports car like) in the Coupe than in the sedan or the wagon. The front passenger is

Drives-U-Crazy . . . Hanging a left on a red

Teaching people the unusual rules of the road would make driving a little less frustrating in busy centres. For instance, everybody knows that it is legal to make a right turn on a red light. However, it seems few people realize it is fine to hang a left on red from a two-way street into a one-way street. If there are no vehicles approaching from your right on the green it’s perfectly safe and efficient and reduces lengthy backups. What drives-u-crazy?

While the V6 may seem tame at low engine speeds, the power boost above 4,000 rpm is considerable. Manual shifts are via steering wheel-mounted buttons on the back of the steering wheel.

Bronze for Brousseau!

TERRACE HAS its first medal ever from the Paralympics. Caleb Brousseau earned bronze with his time of 1:22.05 in the men's sitting division of the men's super-G, realizing a Paralympic dream sparked by watching the Vancouver 2010 Paralympics, reported the Canadian Paralympic Committee following the race. "My mind is just blown right now," said Brousseau after the race March 9. "My heart is hardly staying inside of my chest cavity. This is absolutely amazing and I'm stoked to have ramped things up this hard. I can't wait to step on the podium." Brousseau, who was the ninth racer out of the gate in the sitting category, faced a nerve-wracking wait in the leader box as he watched more than two-thirds of the field try unsuccessfully to reach the podium. "I'm amazed that I still have skin on my fingers! I was so nervous watching everyone coming down," he said of winning his first Paralympic medal. "This result makes me feel really good about my skiing. I think it really sets me up to push things even further. There's so much our team can do on this hill." In the first run of the men's super combined slalom sitting category March 11 and the men’s slalom March 13, Brousseau did not finish, suffering equipment malfunctions. And on his final race March 15 in giant slalom sitting he did not finish. Back home in Terrace, his family and friends cheered him on and followed his success. “We’re stoked,” said his dad, Mike Brousseau, last week. “He’s doing good out there.” And Prime Minister Stephen Harper offered his congratulations following his bronze medal finish. “I also offer my sincere congratulations to Caleb Brousseau for winning a bronze medal in Para-Alpine skiing men’s super-G (sitting). Mr. Brousseau is an inspiration to all Canadians,” he said. By print deadline and with the final alpine event, women’s giant slalom, still to take place Sunday, March 16, Canada’s para-alpine team’s medal count in Sochi was at eight, including two gold.

THOMAS CHRISTENSEN took first place in 100m Breast Stroke at provincials.

Christensen wins gold at provincials

Terrace Blueback Thomas Christensen grabbed gold earlier this month in Chilliwack at short track provincials, clocking in faster than the AAA time standard. His time of 1:13.06 in the 100 metre breast stroke was enough to give him the gold in a close race that saw him overtake his competition in the last 25 metres after being behind half a body length earlier in the race. “It was pretty close,” said Christensen. He has qualified for provincials numerous times in his swimming career, but this was the first time he took the plunge – and it paid off. “It was awesome,” he said, of the win. “Best feeling ever.” He picked this year to finally compete provincially because he’s decided it will be his last year with the team, choosing to focus on his final year of high school next year. “I’ve gotten out of swimming what I wanted – a triple A time and a gold medal, which is a bit of a bonus,” he said.

BC Lions’ players touch down in northwest By CAMERON ORR SHARING A message of solidarity against gender violence, two BC Lions athletes took to Terrace and the northwest as part of the Be More Than a Bystander program. The two Lions, Travis Lulay and Rolly Lumbala, started at Parkside Secondary School before moving on to stops in Kitimat and Prince Rupert in the days following. The program they represent seeks to give youths tools and options in facing potential acts of gender violence, even early signs Both say that since the advent of the program in 2011, the culture even in the locker room of the BC Lions has changed. “We’re so desensitized to a lot of the stuff that goes on around us that often times we found ourselves not even thinking about these issues, especially people who it hasn’t somehow directly impacted their lives,” said Lulay, adding

the approach of the program is to give people tools even if they aren’t the perpetrator of gender violence. “Respect one another but also the women in our lives. That’s the kind of culture we try to create among the football club. And you can see, absolutely, that ...we’re kind of like the police in the locker room. I would say the culture has changed, definitely,” said Lumbala. Among the tools they teach to students is simply to try changing the subject or telling a joke in a way that helps draw attention to someone perhaps acting inappropriately that their behaviour is not acceptable. “We hope to give these guys some real options,” said Lulay. While the message is universal, they acknowledge their position as football players helps them reach their audience. “It gets a foot in the door to at least get their attention for a period of time,” said Lumbala.


TRAVIS LULAY, left, and Rolly Lumbala both play for the BC Lions. They were in Terrace last week speaking to area schools.

Rory Bird ready to fly (down ice on skates) He says he’s not a daredevil, but Terrace’s Rory Bird is heading to Quebec to compete as an amateur in Redbull’s Crashed Ice downhill ice cross championship. What’s downhill ice cross? It’s an extreme sport that sees athletes in skates and full hockey gear battle their way down a downhill ice track, complete with jumps, wall-rides and obstacles. Athletes are “allowed some contact but you can’t blatantly go out and body check some guy, you’re just kind of jostling to get in front,” explained Bird, 24, who qualified for the competition earlier this winter in Vancouver. “I wouldn’t say I’m a daredevil, but I’ll try something new every time, and this year I decided to give this a try,” said Bird. He entered the competition for the first time last year at the urging of his cousin, Graeme Treweeke, who qualified for nationals this year for the third year in a row. “I went last year and missed out by 4/100ths of a second, so I was pretty choked after that,” he said. “But this year I finished in the 10th spot and qualified by 2/100ths of a second.” The top 10 athletes from B.C. compete at the national competition in Quebec City this week. Bird’s qualifying time of 23:61 this year was almost a full second faster than his time of 24:81 last year, which is promising. But it’s hard to know what to expect when you get to the official ice course – it’s a whole different experience than the qualifying round. “Through the qualifying phase you didn’t do anything that you see on TV,” he said. “Basically you’re in an ice rink and you just go around a bunch of obstacles, so I never got to experience that.” While there aren’t any ice hills to train on in Terrace, Bird says he’s been running and building up leg strength, and getting in ice time playing ringette and hockey. “I’ve pretty much been skating since I was seven, eight,” he said. He’s also a skier, and is comfortable taking


hings have never been so weird as they are right now. Pam Anderson, the First Lady of Ladysmith, proud possessor of a silicon valley of world renown, joins Sam Simon, the cancer riddled co-creator of the Simpsons, to jet to Newfoundland and offer Newfie sealers a million bucks in hopes that those hard-bitten inhabitants of the rock will stop ranging over the ice floes crushing seal skulls. Take the generous offer, pleads a barelegged, high heeled, shivering Pam at an outdoor press conference. A comic from CBC’s 22 Minutes ambushes the event and offers Pam a million dollars to quit acting, much to the bewilderment of those attendees who didn’t realize that bouncing along a sandy strand in a teeny bikini was acting. The sealers are unmoved. Pam and Sam neglected to do some necessary arithmetic: a million dollars evenly divided amongst the 6,000 participants in the sealing industry comes to about $167 per person, significantly less than pogey, and as such not much of an incentive to quit whacking defenceless seals. “They’re here, passing judgment on us as if they have some kind of moral superiority. Well quite frankly, to me, the Hollywood set doesn’t have moral superiority over very many people, and certainly not over us,” states brother Earle McCurdy, president of the Fish, Food and Allied

But it’s going to be a battle if he wants to make it to the televised amateur finals this weekend – there are about 120 qualifiers from across Canada, and after going through a whole new qualifying system, the top 32 have a chance to go on TV. “I’m kind of just in it for the experience,” he said. “I’m pretty excited but nervous at the same time.” For more information on the event – and to see videos of what the course looks like – visit

knew somebody who clubbed Labrador retrievers so he could skin them and sell their glossy fur to be made into boots and less utilitarian products and sell their meat to the 11 countries that have no qualms about eating canine flesh, would you consider his actions humane? As for sustainability, the minister has done her homework. It’s possible to fly over the ice off Newfoundland and count seals and, providing you have enough rigorous scientific data, engineer a sustainable hunt. It’s a shame that Gail Shea didn’t have the same concern for species on the West Coast. Recently she gave the OK to herring roe fisheries off the west coast of Vancouver Island over the objection of the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nation who claimed the stocks had not recovered sufficiently since a closure was instituted in 2006. The Nuu-chah-nuth sued, and the court, in an unprecedented ruling, issued an injunction saying that DFO’s decision ignored the science on the matter. Of course, Minister Shea, who presided over the closure of scientific research facilities, the gutting of the habitat division of DFO and the DFO libraries, a move that critics have characterized as the electronic equivalent of book burning, has demonstrated she cares much more for the jobs of seal hunters than those scientists, fisheries officers, and habitat technicians.

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?
