TERRACE - Care for newborns at Mills Memorial Hospital has increased through the purchase of a Panda bed warmer, assisted by a $11,582 from Shoppers Drug Mart. The money was raised through the Annual Tree of Life, proceeds of which have to go to women’s health.

Ferry schedule harmful to North Coast By Martina Perry


PRINCE RUPERT - Despite BC Ferries’ attempt to lessen the repercussions of sailing cuts to the Inside Passage and Prince Rupert/Skidegate routes, opponents say impacts to the North Coast’s tourism sector will still be substantial. The new schedules for the Inside Passage, or Route 10, and the Prince Rupert/Skidegate run, Route 11, were posted on BC Ferries’ website last week following a number of meetings. The Inside Passage will see one less sailing per week during the off-season, which is October to May. The voyage leaving Prince Rupert on Tuesday and returning from Port Hardy on

Wednesday has been eliminated, with the Friday, Saturday and Sunday sailings still in place. While the number of summer sailings hasn’t changed, the length of the trip and its summer schedule has. Instead of starting in May and ending in September, the summer schedule will now be from June 11 to Sept. 8, with north and southbound trips always stopping in either Bella Bella of Klemtu to pick up passengers. Before there were a number of direct sailings. Route 11 between Prince Rupert and Skidegate will see one less round trip per week in the fall-to-spring schedule. Prior to cuts there would be three round trips each week, with the Monday sailing being cut. After

coming from Prince Rupert on Sunday, the ship will remain in Skidegate until Tuesday before it heads back. The Thursday sailing was not affected by changes. During its peak season from June 28 to Sept. 7, Route 11 will have five sailings instead of six, with the Wednesday trip being eliminated. Marshall said this will allow commercial traffic a night in Skidegate and will mean people living on Haida Gwaii who need to travel to Prince Rupert for appointments will stay for two nights instead of three. “The province determined the number of round trips that were cancelled. We worked with the Ferry Advisory Committee and other community lead-

ers and looked at some options,” said Debra Marshall, BC Ferries spokesperson. Scott Farwell, chair of Tourism Prince Rupert, said the provincial government doesn’t understand the damage these reductions will have throughout the province. “The realization I’ve come to is the government and BC Ferries has decided to operate the ferry as simply a transportation vehicle and haven’t looked at it as the economic generator that it is through the entire north and province of B.C. ... I don’t think urban British Columbians understand the impacts of this on small towns in northern B.C.,” he said, adding he remains disappointed the cuts were made so quickly.

NEW HAZELTON New Hazelton RCMP responded to 52 calls during the period of March 13-19. On March 17 RCMP received a complaint of a fraud. A female caller claimed that she was acting on behalf of one of the caller’s relatives, who needed bail money. The victim wired over $2000 through the Post Office to another location. This is called an ‘Emergency’ or ‘Grandparent’ scam and can be researched on the Canadian Anti-fraud Centre website. Police are currently investigating. Also on March 17, at 8:30 am, RCMP were called to John Field Elementary school due to a break in that occurred overnight. Some items were

BC Hydro to build Terrace-Kitimat line By Cameron Orr


KTIMAT - BC Hydro has been seeking community advice on how to proceed on a replacement project for the power line that runs between Terrace and

Kitimat. The Terrace to Kitimat Transmission Project (TKT) will eventually replace the current 287 kilovolt (kV) line that runs from a Terrace substation to the Minette Substation at the former Eurocan industrial site.

The line was constructed in the early 1970s and project manager Robert Smith said it’s coming to the end of its 40 year lifespan. “We’re beginning to see age related problems,” he said. “A few years ago there were a lot

of pole-top fires.” Today the company is continually patching the line and there are safety concerns given the line isn’t built to modern standard. Efforts to replace the line will mean five options for BC Hydro to look in to.

Rupert schools rank low By Martina Perry THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - The Fraser Institute released its 2014 Report Card on B.C.’s Elementary Schools earlier this month, with Prince Rupert schools staying near the bottom of the list. The report included 982 public and independent elementary schools, with results being determined on 10 academic indicators using data from Grade 4 and 7 Foundation Skills Assessment tests administered by the Ministry of Education in the 2012/2013 school year. With this data, schools are given a score out of 10 and are ranked by it. Results from Grade 7 students at Prince Rupert Middle School were attributed to the elementary school they attended. Annunciation was once again the highest ranked elementary school in Prince Rupert, but its scores decreased this year. The school was ranked 220 out of 982 compared to a five year ranking average of 70/717, and was

KITIMAT - A potential liquefied natural gas company is looking towards future development on the west coast. But where is a question that is yet to be answered. Steelhead LNG on March 18 announced that a former BC Attorney General Geoff Plant had been appointed to the company’s board of directors, as the company builds up an experience-base on their corporate level that includes natural gas development from the supply to delivery side. CEO Nigel Kuzemko said the company isn’t setting sites on anywhere specific at the mo-

to service the plant is also another aspect that will need time. It could take up to five years just to complete the permitting phase of any development. The company said in an earlier news release they’d be attending Gastech in South Korea, a natural gas conference. Meanwhile Kuzemko, while not himself Canadian, does take note that the company is based in Canada — head office is in Vancouver — and the company has a staff that is mostly Canadian. He said if they’re successful they’ll possibly take their expertise into overseas markets. The company is funded in Canada too, including by a private equity firm in Calgary.

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.

Sgt. Jim Fenske is the new commander of the Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP detachment.

New RCMP commander on the job NEW AIYANSH - The new commander of the Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP detachment loves working in small towns in the great outdoors. Sgt. Jim Fenske took over March 6 after being in charge of the detachment in Hudson’s Hope B.C. for eight months. Before that, he was posted in Mackenzie as commander there for four years. His previous posts include Carmacks, Yukon, Campbell River, Stewart and he started his career in Fort St. James. Small towns suit his lifestyle better than larger centres. “My hobbies are outdoorsy, fishing and hunting, hanging out with the kids, camping,” said Fenske. “When you grow up on the farm in the Prairies, you have a total appreciation for the mountains, rivers, lakes and just how beautiful it is,” he said, adding the weather here is better than when he was growing up “on the flat bald prairie where it’s -40 degrees for three weeks” in the winter. Fenske plans to continue with former officer in charge Sgt. Donovan Tait’s approach of the RCMP as a service provider to meet the needs of the Nisga’a communities in the Nass Valley. “It’s something we’ve got to build on. He’s clearly set the groundwork. It’s just a matter of adding our own twist to it,” said Fenske. “First Nations policing officers, we

have three here, and you know there’s four villages so they spend an enormous amount of time in with the kids and elders and sometimes it’s not ‘traditional’ police work but they’re building bonds and relationships with people,” said Fenske. The detachment has its full complement of a corporal and five constables. “There’s members with lots of interest in coming up here so that’s a good thing.” And whereas small towns used to be where officers got their start, that seems to be shifting. “Normally, we’d get recruits or those with a couple of years of service but we’re getting [members with] up to 10, 14, 25-plus [years] who want to come up here.” That’s likely due to a combination of factors: always wanting to do something like that or looking for a change of role in a smaller town, he added. Small town policing in uniform is more “down to the roots, boots on the ground po-

lice work,” he said. Former Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP officer in charge Sgt. Donovan

Cullen named NDP finance critic By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

OTTAWA - When the House of Commons resumes sitting this week, Skeena – Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen will be focusing his attention on the nation’s finances. NDP leader Thomas Mulcair announced a shadow cabinet shuffle on March 20 that will see Cullen move from the position of House Leader to the opposition finance critic, a role Cullen said he is excited to take on. “I’m thrilled that someone from a northern and rural riding is going to be a big part of the financial con-

versation at the national level ... I’m looking forward to the challenge. I think this discussion is going to be a huge part of the NDP forming government in a year-and-a-half,” he said, noting the new position is a lot more high profile than his current one. “The House Leader is much more in the background with strategy. This position is much more of a public face.” Cullen takes over the position from Toronto MP Peggy Nash and will be criticizing the work of newly-appointed Finance Minisert Joe Oliver, who took over the role after Jim Flaherty resigned following /bc_north  A7


eight years in the position. Cullen said he is looking forward to holding Oliver to account and bringing his background into the debate. “He comes from Bay Street as a former executive at Merrill Lynch ... I get my roots from Main Street and the small business sector, which I think is really the backbone of the economy,” he said, adding he will continue to work for the people of the riding. “[Finance] is a big conversation ... at the end of the day, one of my top priorities is making sure the Northwest gets noticed. My goal is to make sure the voice of this region is heard.”

Douglas Channel Watch embarks on their own campaign By Cameron Orr THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

KITIMAT - Douglas Channel Watch (DCW) has launched their campaign to get voters out for Kitimat’s April 12 plebiscite on the Northern Gateway Pipelines proposal. “We fought hard for a simple, clear question but didn’t realize how important the plebiscite was until we started getting interview requests from the BBC, and heard

of other international news organizations that were also coming to cover it,” said DCW member Murray Minchin in a news release. DCW conducted door-to-door surveys, the organization says, to find out what people thought ahead of the community vote. There were five key reasons that they found for people to vote no in the plebiscite, whether they were a ‘fence sitter’ on the issue or supporters of the Northern Gateway project.

Those reasons were, it “will allow temporary foreign workers to build the pipelines,” it describes “Northern Gateway as a raw diluted bitumen export pipeline,” it “does not mandate upgrading or any other job creating, value added projects,” it will “allow 1,100ft long oil supertankers on BC’s pristine north coast,” and that “the JRP considered the Exxon Valdez and Kalamazoo spills as localized events with temporary effects, which would be ‘justified in the

circumstances’ if they happened in BC’s waters.” Minchin said that this plebiscite is a “golden opportunity,” for Kitimatians to send a strong message to Ottawa that the Northern Gateway should not be a priority. DCW has launched their campaign as a grassroots action against Enbridge’s own advertising efforts. Enbridge has been running a number of ads in community newspapers and radio as Kitimat leads into its early April plebiscite.

The question being asked on April 12 is: Do you support the final report recommendations of the Joint Review Panel (JRP) of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency and National Energy Board, that the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project be approved, subject to 209 conditions set out in Volume 2 of the JRP’s final report? Visit for detailed information on advanced voting opportunities and more details including voter eligibility.

To learn more about Teto and our adoption process, please contact the shelter today!

Terrace continues to help sick girl TERRACE - With young Hailey Pettit expected to be in hospital for leukemia treatment for another six to eight months, family, friends and even people who don’t know her are helping out. Hailey has begun her fifth round of chemotherapy. She, and her mom Sherry, have been at BC Children’s Hospital since January 5 when she was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Leukemia. Team Hailey tshirts are on sale at her school, Thornhill Primary, where a fun day is also being planned and a dance with a live band is also in the planning stages. Students sent valen-

tines to her last month. Ecole Mountainview students who heard about Hailey held a fundraising dance and are collecting pledges until April 3 – the student who raises the most money gets to shave the head of teacher Eric Gearey. And it doesn’t matter that the students don’t know her. “You can feel good that you can help her get better and help her to live a longer life,” said Ecole Mountainview Grade 4 student Ethan Campbell. He filled up one pledge sheet, raising $146 so far, and is looking to get many more names and donations. Donation jars are set

up at businesses around town and a Team Hailey account is collecting donations at the Northern

Savings Credit Union. For updates on fundraisers, see the Team Hailey page on Facebook.

TRUST ONLY your Honda dealer for Genuine Honda Parts and Service. Don’t open your hood to strangers.

5 tips for buying a vehicle this spring (NC) Let’s face it. Spring fever isn’t about love at all; it’s about cars. New cars, used cars, car shows, car showrooms, car ads, that new car smell and test drives. For those in the market for a vehicle this spring, there are some things you can do to make the experience interesting, rewarding and satisfying. The first is to become informed. A video produced by the Office of Energy Efficiency at Natural Resources Canada is a great place to start. The video is fun, entertaining and informative plus it describes everything you need to know for making that all-important first purchase. In a nutshell, it offers five great tips for buying your first car. Analyze your driving needs. Where do you live? What do you do? How will you use your vehicle? How many people and things will you carry along with you? How much will you travel each day? These are just a few of the questions you can ask yourself to help give you a realistic idea of the size and type of vehicle you’ll need. Analyze your choices. Gasoline, diesel, electric or hybrids are your basic power choices nowadays and each has its advantages depending on your driving needs. Avoid temptation. There are some thirsty, fuel-guzzling vehicles out there and they’re

not all pickup trucks or large SUVs. You can find a vehicle with moderate thrills that won’t cost a bundle to fill up or maintain. Think light, think small, think efficient. Your friends will be impressed with your concern for the environment if you choose a smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicle that produces fewer greenhouse gases.

5 ways to eco-drive (NC) Accelerate gently. The harder you accelerate the more fuel you consume. In the city, you can conserve fuel by easing onto the accelerator pedal gently and gradually. Pretend there’s an egg under the gas pedal and an open cup of coffee on the dash. Try to drive without breaking the shell or spilling the coffee and you’ll be good to go. Maintain a steady speed. Be consistent. Unintentional dips in speed and sudden bursts of acceleration take a toll on your tank and your wallet. In fact, tests show that varying your speed up and down between 75 km/h and 85km/h every 18 seconds can increase your fuel use by 20 per cent. Use cruise control whenever possible. Anticipate traffic. Read the road ahead, anticipate road disruptions, monitor the movements of pedestrians and other vehicles and keep a comfortable distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you. Coast to decelerate. Coasting to a stop with your foot off the pedal is like


driving for free. By anticipating traffic slowdowns as early as possible, you can decrease your speed, conserve fuel and save money by simply taking your foot off the accelerator. Today, most vehicles are equipped with fuel-injection systems that automatically shut off the flow of fuel to the engine when the accelerator is fully released. Avoid high speeds. Even if you have a need for speed, slow down. Most cars, vans, SUVs and pickup trucks operate most fuel efficiently when travelling between 50 and 80 km/h. Anything above this optimal speed zone and vehicles consume increasingly more fuel the faster they go. For example, if it takes $10 worth of fuel to drive a certain distance at 100 km/h, it would cost $12 to travel that same distance at 120 km/h. That’s like throwing a toonie out the window every 100 km. Source: Natural Resources Canada,

SPRING CAR CARE 2014 BEST (NC) The federal government is updating the test methods used to determine fuel consumption ratings for new light-duty vehicles to better reflect real-world driving conditions and behaviours.

“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

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.

Business leaders from around the world will be in Prince Rupert.

Global delegates coming By Martina Perry


PRINCE RUPERT - The National Aboriginal Business Opportunities Conference (NABOC) has grown every year since its inaugural year in Prince Rupert and 2014 is no different. The NABOC draws delegates from international private sector organizations aiming to develop business relationships with First Nations communities and businesses. To meet the demand of its growing popularity, the 2014 conference will be held at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre from April 29 to May 1. “The conference gets more powerful every year and brings more people together. It’s positive to see the response to the region,” said organizer Geoff Greenwell of the 2G Group. The conference is being hosted by Metlakatla First Nation Chief Harold Leighton and Lax Kw’alaams First Nation Mayor Garry Reece, and will include more than 400 Aboriginal and private sector business leaders for two days of dialogue. So far 150 different organizations are registered, some coming from China, the U.S., Europe, Russia and elsewhere in the world. Throughout the days of April 29 and 30 there will be a number of ses-

sions on topics like marketing and advertising, as well as employment, training and procurement initiatives, as well as updates on port of Prince Rupert operations and project updates on the proposed liquefied natural gas terminals and pipelines. In addition, there will be more than 60 companies included in the North Coast Job Fair taking place both days from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the auditorium. “There will be companies looking for employees. People looking for work or a change of work can find out what some of these companies have to offer,” Greenwell said. In the evenings there will be hospitality events, during the first night at The Crest Hotel and the following evening at the civic centre. On the final day, participants will have the chance to play a charity golf game, take a tour of the harbour and Ridley Terminals, and potentially go on a helicopter tour if everything works out. The conference will conclude with a banquet dinner at the North Coast Convention Centre that night. This is the fourth consecutive year the conference will be held in Prince Rupert, with Greenwell estimating the event generates more than $500,000 for the Prince Rupert economy.

Attention Boaters Get ready for boating season by getting your pleasure craft licence and proof of competency now. Pleasure craft licence In Canada, all recreational boats with a motor of 10 horsepower (7.5 kW) or more must have a pleasure craft licence. A pleasure craft licence provides a unique identification number that must be displayed on your boat. This allows Search and Rescue personnel to access important information in an emergency.

Trade connects us.

Pleasure craft licences are valid for 10 years. Operating a pleasure craft without one may result in a $250 fine. Proof of competency Everyone who operates a power-driven boat also needs proof of competency — something that shows they understand the basic rules and how to safely operate a boat. The most common proof of competency is the Pleasure Craft Operator Card. You can get the card by taking a boating safety course in-person or online, and passing the test at the end of the course. For more information on how to get your card or to get an Application for a Pleasure Craft Licence, visit or call the Boating Safety InfoLine at 1-800-267-6687.

Protect the Kitimat way of life, say no to the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline Dear Kitimat citizens, I am a citizen of Ceresco Michigan, located on the Kalamazoo River, and I need to let you know the truth about how an Enbridge pipeline devastated our communities. Here is the truth: • 3 ½ years later, the clean up is not complete — and Enbridge has been dragged kicking and screaming to keep their commitments • We still have toxic bitumen sunken in the river • Houses sit empty and property values are down • We are still living the nightmare while Enbridge buys ads trying to convince people that everything is okay Enbridge devastated our community. Please don’t let them do the same to you. — Deb Miller

Gemma’s Boutiques WEEKLY SUDOKU Solution For MARCH 28

It is with great sadness and shock that we announce the sudden passing of Larry (Zeke) Jones, on March 18th 2014, just after celebrating his 66th birthday on March 6th. Larry left behind a tremendous amount of family, friends and people that he touched through his work that he loved. He leaves behind his wife and partner Tracey Davidson, step-daughter Grace, son Eric (California), his Dad Joe Such (Indiana), his father Gene Jones (Tennessee), brothers in Indiana; Dennis Jones, Steve (Kathy), and Aaron Such. Larry was predeceased by his mom Lottie Such and his sister Cindy Jones. After 66 years of living a wild and crazy life, and some of you know those wonderful stories; he ended up in Terrace BC. Larry had a wonderful extended family at 16-37 Community Futures. He is going to miss Ken (Lorna and Austin), Wade, Debbie, Sally and Sean very much; along with many of the other people that he worked with throughout the years there. To his “Faller” buddies…cheers! Larry would not want us to mourn him in the traditional sense, so to honor his wishes we will have a party later in the spring at the home he loved; BBQ ribs, playing the Blues (his favorite), with a single malt in hand. We will post a date later this spring. In lieu of flowers we ask that a donation be made to NARA (Northern Animal Rescue Alliance) in memory of Larry and his dogs that he loved.

Skidegate Saints repeat as Jr. All Native champions By Martina Perry


KAMLOOPS - The undefeated Skidegate Saints walked away with their third consecutive Junior All Native title last week, after conquering their adversaries from Van City 86-49 in the final on Friday. Skidegate had forced Van City into the loser’s bracket on Wednesday, but Van City won their next three games, including the bracket final against Lytton’s TlkemchEEn Warriors. Skidegate led early in the final game, but Van City was able to keep the game within reach throughout the first half. When the buzzer sounded at halftime, the Saint held a narrow 34-32 lead. Skidegate came out firing on all cylinders in the third, going on a 19-2 run in the quarter that ended 53-34. “We finally got going and started hitting shots in the third quarter. We turned it up defensively and got our game going,” said Nate Vogstad, who was named the Junior All Native’s Most Valuable Player. “They were picking apart our zone, they were using wild and three-point shots and backdoor cuts and easy layups from the baseline. In the third quarter we went man-to-man, and they didn’t get nearly as many shots. We shut down their best scorer, picked up the rebound and got easy buckets in transition,” said Jesse Barnes, who was named a tournament all-star. Skidegate kept pushing in the forth, leading by more than 25 points with five minutes to play. The final score was 86-49, with Barnes leading the Saints’ scoring with 30 points, followed by Vogstad with 27. “It’s a relief that we defended it for the third time. It feels good to bring it back to

Terrace Midget Rep Kermodes win provincials TERRACE - The Terrace Midget Rep Kermodes stayed disciplined for the length of last week’s Tier 3 provincial tournament – and it paid off with gold. Terrace’s most senior minor hockey team came home with gold last weekend after beating Alberni Valley 4 – 1 in the championship final in 100 Mile House last week. The team went 7 – 0 for the tournament, outscoring their opponents 60 – 4 over the course of the five days. But high scores didn’t mean they could relax – especially with a dedicated coaching and support staff making them stay on track and perform team building activities daily so they were ready for competition. The March 21 final against Alberni Valley was an evenly paced, high tempo game that saw the game tied at one at the end of the first period. Terrace took the lead late in the second to end the period 2 – 1, and fended off a determined Alberni team to score two more in the third for the 4 – 1 final. Shots on goal were 31-28. Aside from the provincial banner, the team was also awarded the Fair Play Award.


The Skidegate Saints celebrate their third Junior All Native championship. everyone at home. It’s been a championship year for Haida Gwaii,” said Vogstad, who is 17 and won’t be eligible to compete in next year’s tournament. “I would have been pretty disappointed if I didn’t win my last year, so I had to give it my all.” The Saints were unconquerable throughout the tournament, beating the equally un-

defeated TlkemchEEn Warriors of Lytton in the semifinal after taking out the Gitanmaax Torchmen, Lax Kw’alaams and Van City earlier in the week. The win followed an inspirational run by the Queen Charlotte Secondary Saints at the B.C. AAAA provincials, with most of the same players making up the Junior All Native team.

The Saints only got one day of rest between the two tournaments. “After coming off of a pretty good performance at the AAAA provincials we came in determined to win this tournament,” said Barnes. “We exceeded expectations this season. I’m proud of how much heart everyone put into our games,” said Vogstad.

TERRACE - The Terrace Wolverines were the youngest team to compete at last week’s BC Jr. All Native Basketball Tournament in Kamloops, B.C. The girls fell to Gitmidiik Thunder from New Aiyansh in their first game and Lilwat in their second. The team’s average age is 12, while most players in the tournament range from 15 – 17 years old, setting the girls up for a bright future. The boys won their first game against NCN Young Guns, but were knocked out by the Maaqtusis Magic. More than 45 teams, 21 girls and 24 boys, competed in the tournament, which will be held in Nanaimo next year.

The BC Government is now off-loading our recycling decisions to Toronto.

Under its new regulations, the BC Government has set up an association led by big corporations to take over the local Blue Box recycling program throughout BC. If you look closely, you’ll see that of seven board members, six are executives of Toronto-based multi-national corporations, with the seventh weighing in from Montreal. How do you like that, British Columbia? This means, unlike the current program run locally by BC municipalities, this new program will be managed not by people whose first responsibility is our local environment, but rather, their Bay St. profits. That can’t be a good thing for BC. The most perplexing thing is that we currently have a Blue Box program that works, is efficient, and costs BC homeowners just

$35 a year on average. The new proposed system does not guarantee to keep our local environment as its first priority, nor does it guarantee that there won’t be job losses here in BC. It doesn’t guarantee service levels, or say anything about how big business will pass along the costs to you when you go to pick up a pizza or buy groceries. Yikes! Perhaps this is why several of BC’s municipalities refuse to sign onto the new program, calling it a “scam.” Given that, maybe it’s time you called Premier Clark to keep BC’s environmental decisions right here in BC where they belong.

What’s going on here?

Recycling program hit for cost to consumer and red tape

VICTORIA - The NDP is accusing the provincial government of handing over control of B.C.’s blue box recycling system to Toronto-based multinational executives who will be unaccountable while B.C. businesses and households pay higher costs. Opposition small business critic Lana Popham raised the issue of Multi Material BC in the Legislature Monday, calling on the province to change course before the agency’s new system for recycling packaging and printed paper takes effect May 19. “If government doesn’t take a step back, B.C.’s recycling system is going to end up in a giant dumpster,” Popham said. “The control of recycling should never have been outsourced to the large corporate interests based in Ontario and abroad. This is a profound failure. This program needs to be paused and the entire concept reconsidered.” Popham’s comments



SAVE UP SAVE SAVE SAVE TO $31 UP UP UP TO $31 $31 TO TO $31 follow the launch earlier this month of a campaign against MMBC by a coalition of business groups, including the newspaper industry, who say they can’t afford to pay high fees imposed under the new system. The provincially mandated system is designed to make generators of packaging and paper pay to collect and process it, but business critics contend it will be onerous due to high costs, paperwork and reporting obligations. “The Liberal government loves to claim they’re getting rid of red tape,” Popham said in an interview Monday. “So it’s quite ironic because MMBC is a Godzillasized red tape monster.” Although MMBC is registered as a society, Popham called it a “dummy corporation” because two of its three directors are Torontobased senior executives with Loblaws and Unilever, while the third is MMBC managing director Allan Langdon. Popham said the province should force MMBC to give B.C. stakeholders majority

control. The Saanich South NDP MLA said the MMBC system will be “dangerously close to monopoly” resulting in less competition and innovation in recycling. She also said municipalities have been pressured into signing contracts with inadequate


compensation for their costs, the threat of penalties for contamination and a gag clause. MMBC’s new recycling fees on businesses will be passed along to consumers through higher prices, Popham said, calling it a “hidden tax” that won’t be transparent to consumers.
