Housing prices climb By ANNA KILLEN

LOCAL COFFEE shop owners Alexander Vogel, Sonny Yoo and Lance Dettwiler raise their respective to-go cups. These roast masters operate within blocks of each other.

Coffee scene perks up

By JOSH MASSEY EARLY LAST month a group of Cafenara regulars approached owner Sonny Yoo and told him they wanted to renovate their beloved coffee shop for him. The owner of the Lazelle Ave. business of more than 10 years was naturally surprised to see such an intervention staged by his own clients. “It was sort of embarrassing,” Yoo says with a laugh. “‘It’s really that bad, is it?’ Was my first thought.” His longtime group of clients had noticed something Yoo was aware of but didn’t have time to act on with his busy family life — that the coffee shop landscape in Terrace was heating up with new options available to coffee drinkers.

The new arrival, Xanders Coffee, had burst onto the scene in December last year and the Elephant’s Ear had been reborn this February after major renovations and service overhaul. “You could say that my friends saw the other coffee shops doing this,” Yoo said. They figured it was “time to wake him up.” Just a few blocks away from Cafenara, over on the 400 Block of Lakelse, Xanders and Elephant’s Ear are practically across the street from each other. Alexander Vogel learned the art of craft roasting beans before starting up Xanders and says the lease in the space at the Coast Inn of the North building was highly opportune. “Everything fell into place,” he said. “The lease came up and

I just had to go for it. I stuck to my guns and went for it.” The bean roasting allows Vogel to create unique flavours himself and is one of his shop’s distinguishing features, he said, and those beans are available for customers to purchase. Cafenara also roasts their own beans, and Yoo says the shop’s restaurant-style food options help them stand apart. The Elephant’s Ear went through a complete interior redesign in January and now has a deli component to its service. “Every five to eight years we do that in the business to look fresh and new,” says owner Lance Dettwiler of the upgrade. “I was going to do the renos later but with the competition arising I moved the timeline ahead – plus January is a slow

month so it was a good time to do the renovations,” he said. On top of the refinished look Dettwiler now offers a deli products selection and buildyour-own sandwich options. He kicked off his re-opening with an open mic night featuring local musicians. None of the owners did their transformations single-handedly. They all had help from the community. For Yoo, this has meant volunteers, many members of a local church, helping out with time and even cash donations to paint the walls, clean and change fixings. “They felt genuinely from their heart that they wanted to help this guy,” said Yoo of the efforts that have been going on over the past month.

THE AVERAGE selling price for a single family home in Terrace is nearly $100,000 more than it was at this time two years ago. Numbers released by the Northern B.C. Real Estate Board (NBCBEB) show that the average selling price for a detached family home in Terrace for the first quarter of 2012 was $200,926. By March, 2013 that first quarter average was $226,303, and now, into the first three months of 2014 that number has climbed to $294,067. In 2014, 43 single family homes were sold, compared to 32 last year and 41 in 2012. “We’ve seen a dramatic increase over the last two to three years,” said realtor and NBCBEB director John Evans. “If you would have bought around 2010, 2011 that’s when there were some really good buys around, and in that case it’s basically doubled,” he said. And it doesn’t appear to be stopping anytime soon, he said. “The market is continuing to show that it’s very strong and showing signs of continuing to improve,” he said. “We continue to get calls.” In the first quarter of 2014, 101 properties were sold overall in Terrace, up from 60 last year. This year, the total value of these properties was $23 million – double the $11.5 million total for the first quarter of 2013. “Going from 60 to 101 sales – that’s a huge increase in the activity that’s going on in the community,” said Evans. Homes sell quickly and to a wide variety of buyers, said Evans, noting that it’s a combination of first-time homebuyers, out-of-town buyers that are moving to the area for work, out-of-town investors looking to capitalize on the area’s growth, and people who already own homes looking for a rental property. “The out-of-town investor who is looking to Terrace now, they’re seeing opportunities because housing is still relatively cheap if you’re on the outside looking in,” he said.

TERRACE RCMP and the North District Crime Unit remained at the site of a sudden death on the city’s southside March 31.

A MAN charged with eight offences related to break-ins at several local businesses last month has been sentenced less than two weeks after his arrest. Philip Thompson Cooper, 47, was ordered to spend four months in jail followed by one year of probation with 3/31/2014 11:58:31 AM conditions in Terrace

in relation to a rash of break and enters into city businesses over two weeks. “It was a combination of good police

work and great support from the community that led to this arrest,” said Terrace RCMP inspector Dana Hart.

SPRING 4 FOR 3 EVENT March 24 - April 30, 2014

A MAN charged in connection with the second degree murder of his father appeared in court earlier this week. Jeremy Price, 19, appeared in person in Terrace provincial court April 1 to a courtroom packed with close to 30 people in what was scheduled to be a bail hearing. It was put over to this week to give newly retained defence lawyer Suzette Narbonne time to review the case and speak with her client. On March 29, Terrace RCMP reported that they, along with the North District Crime Unit, were investigating a sudden death in Terrace. The incident was being treated as suspicious at that time, said police. Police and other emergency vehicles descended on the 4600 Block of Goulet on the city southside that day. A police vehicle remained in front of 4632 Goulet Ave. in the early evening hours and yellow police tape cordoned off the front yard of the residence. On March 30, police identified the victim as Clifford Price, 50, and said he was found outside of the home early the previous morning. His son Jeremy had been charged with one count of manslaughter. Crown later raised the charge to second degree murder. This is Terrace’s first murder of the year and second in six months, the last being Eric Cardinal in September 2013 in Thornhill. Police asked that if anyone has any information on this incident to please contact the Terrace RCMP at 250-638-7400, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

First train

April 9, 2014 is the 100th anniversary of the first train passing through Terrace By KEN NEWMAN, REGIONAL DISTRICT OF KITIMAT-STIKINE IT IS a worthy effort to recognize and celebrate the 100th anniversary of the arrival of the first passenger train from the east on the then newly constructed Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. The first passenger train to travel through the Skeena Valley came in early April 1914, arriving in Prince Rupert on April 9, 1914. Only a few days earlier on April 7, 1914, a ceremony was held and the last spike was driven in the last steel rail near Fort Fraser B.C. Who exactly drove the last spike is not entirely clear (more on this mystery later), however, it is known for certain that on that day the tracks of Grand Trunk Pacific (GTP) Railway were finally joined. While that first passenger train was largely a train of GTP officials and dignitaries, it was in fact the first train to travel the entire GTP line from Winnipeg. But the line did not come into full commercial operation until August of 1914 and the first commercial passenger train from the east did not arrive in Prince Rupert until early September, 1914. Ten years earlier, the president of the Grand Trunk Railway Charles M. Hays stood before the shareholders and announced his vision to complete a second Canadian transcontinental railway to a yet-to-be-built west coast port city of Prince Rupert. This railway would be called the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. Over the next 10 years, the GTP would promote the advantage of a northern rail line and how it

ROYAL BC MUSEUM ARCHIVES

THE FIRST train through Prince Rupert, April 9, 1914. would open up opportunities for mining, agriculture and forestry, not to mention to the new port city of Prince Rupert and the advantage of shorter sailing distances to Asian markets. Then-prime minister Wilfrid Laurier was also convinced of the idea of a second transcontinental railway and therefore assisted by having the Dominion Government of Canada provide financial guarantees during construction. The GTP expected to recover the costs of construction by profiting from the influx of settlers, the resulting freight shipments and the sale of prospective townsites along the line. Today in northwest B.C., Smithers, South Hazelton and Prince Rupert are all communities resulting directly from the GTP.

Surveyors and engineers had chosen the Yellowhead route through the Rocky Mountains to Prince Rupert because it afforded the best grades. The GTP had set a high standard for the railway grade of four-tenths of one per cent, or 21.12 feet per mile and curves were to be four degrees or greater. This would make it the lowest grade railway through the Rocky Mountains in North America. The Mountain section of the GTP was the most difficult and expensive section of the railway that began in Winnipeg. The construction of the mountain section began from two points – from the east at Wolf Creek, Alberta and from the west at Prince Rupert. The construction of the line began in Winnipeg in

1905, reaching Wolf Creek, near present day Edson, Alberta, in 1909. The construction of the line going east from Prince Rupert did not begin until May of 1908. The distance from Winnipeg to Wolf Creek was 916 miles while the mountain section from Wolf Creek to Prince Rupert was 839 miles. Within the mountain section, the Skeena Valley portion of the railway was a distance of 180 miles from Prince Rupert to Hazelton – and the most difficult and costly part of the mountain section. The total cost to build the rail line from Winnipeg was $109.8 million and of that, the mountain section cost $78.2 million. The Skeena River from Hazelton to the Pacific Ocean falls 1,000 feet, making it

one of the most rapidly descending rivers on the west coast of North America. Such obstacles along the way included the steep mountain walls of the lower Skeena, Kitselas Canyon and the crossing of the Skeena west of Hazelton. The man in charge of this section of the construction was GTP engineer C.C. Van Arsdoll, nicknamed “four tenths Van” for his insistence that the grade not exceed four-tenths of one per cent in a mile, even during this difficult section. This high standard contributed to the challenges and costs of building a railway in this difficult environment. Tunnels were extensive, in the first 200 miles of the railway some 13 tunnels were built totalling over 8,800 feet. The steel span

bridge across the Skeena at mile 174, 13 miles west of Hazelton (commonly known as Skeena Crossing) was a 930 foot span completed in March of 1912 and only 10 miles further, a second bridge almost 900 feet long was constructed over Sealy Gulch. It is estimated that to build the first 100 miles of grade east of Prince Rupert cost $80,000 a mile before any track was laid. Construction on the Skeena portion of the line was carried out by the principal contractor Foley Brothers, Welch and Stewart (F. W & S) who in many cases sublet to other contractors. Construction camps to house workers were situated along the route approximately every two to five miles. To service the camps, F. W. & S employed sternwheeler steamers to ply the waters of the Skeena. They owned five sternwheelers that would travel the Skeena to the head of navigation at Hazelton. These vessels, prior to the arrival of the GTP, were the means of choice of getting supplies between the coast and the interior. Ironically, the sternwheeler was being used to help build a railway that would end the sternwheeler era on the Skeena. Throughout construction, due to poor living conditions and low wages, workers were hard to retain and it was said that for every man arriving at camp to work, one was leaving. Workers would often refer to F.W. & S Company as Fool’em, Work’em and Starve’em. The first passenger train from the east did not travel the line until April 1914.

Rich history at former rail settlements THE REGIONAL District of Kitimat-Stikine, as result of the historical significance the GTP had on the development of the region, recognized two GTP-related sites. And in 2013, the regional district added sites within the former GTP railway communities of Dorreen and Pacific to its community heritage registry. Those sites were the GTP roundhouse at Pacific and the site of the former GTP station at Dorreen. Pacific was a town located approximately 35 km northeast of Terrace on the

Grand Trunk Pacific (GTP) Railway at mile 119.4 from Prince Rupert. Prior to the arrival of the GTP, it was locally known as Nicholl. Pacific became an important point on the GTP when the company decided to make Pacific the first divisional point east of Prince Rupert and locate a roundhouse and rail yard on a 30 hectare piece of land next to the Skeena River. In addition to the roundhouse, Pacific’s railway infrastructure included a substantial passenger station

(CNR Plan 100-159), freight and baggage sheds, water tank, oil tank, and coaling and sanding facilities. The selection of a railway divisional point often spurred additional economic activity which resulted in the growth of the associated community. Divisional points were typically only 110 to 140 miles apart due to the mechanical limitations of steam locomotives and rolling stock of the time. Early locomotives were smaller and slower and could only

travel short distances before servicing was required. Constructed in 1915, the roundhouse was built to the GTP standard plan (Plan 120-115) typical of its time. The roundhouse was a large quarter-circular-shaped building with tracks leading into 12 stalls, each with a below-grade maintenance pit used for the repair of locomotives and rolling stock. A large turntable in front of the roundhouse was used to align the locomotives with the stalls and was connected to a railway wye, which in

turn joined the mainline track. The contractor that built most of the buildings for the GTP was, CarterHalls-Aldinger, from Winnipeg. It is not know for sure that they built the Pacific roundhouse but it is known that they did construct other GTP roundhouses in prairie towns such as Watrous and Biggar in Saskatchewan and Wainwright in Alberta. Pacific did enjoy a short period of success after the GTP arrived. The land was subdivided and a townsite was created. It had a school,

store, post office, a hotel and community hall but the population never boomed. With increasing advances in locomotive technology from steam to diesel, railway operations became centralized, and as a result the Pacific roundhouse was demolished to its foundations in 1959. The divisional point was transferred to Terrace, and eventually all maintenance was relocated to Prince George, B.C. and Edmonton, Alberta.

Questions remain over who drove the last spike However, there was passenger service operating on the Skeena section by 1911, taking place for the first 100 miles to Kitselas, which at the time was called Vanarsdol and would later become the site of a station. With the arrival of the tracks at Skeena Crossing in March of 1912, the GTP was offering passenger service from Prince Rupert to Hazelton with a ferry service across the Skeena. The GTP situated railway stations at approximately every six to eight miles along the route from Winnipeg – and it was no different on the Skeena portion of the line. At its opening in April 1914, the line between Prince Rupert and Hazelton had 22 stations. Divisional points were also significant sites for railway operations, with not only a station but also a roundhouse and rail yard for the maintenance and servicing of locomotives. Typically divisional points were 100 to 140 miles apart. The first divisional point east of Prince Rupert was located at the community of Pacific, formerly called Nicholl. The stations, with only a few exceptions were of a standard design. By far, the GTP’s most common station type was the Design ‘A’ 100-152, and at its opening in 1914, this was true for all the stations on the Skeena portion of the line, with the exception of Pacific which, being a divisional point, had a larger 100-159 plan station. Sadly today, there are no examples of the stations left along the Skeena portion of the line except for the Kwinitsa station which was moved to Prince Rupert’s waterfront. The stations were all named and the names of these places remain today and in some cases are the names of those involved with the construction of the GTP. Places such as Dorreen, Salvus, Vanarsdol (later Kitselas) and Ritchie. As noted earlier, the GTP opened in the summer of 1914 for full commercial operations but the company was in financial trouble right from its opening. The first blow to the GTP came two years before it was completed when the railway’s president and visionary Charles M. Hays, on a

return trip from Britain to secure capital for the railway, died with the sinking of the Titanic in April 1912. Eventually the high cost of construction, failed townsite land deals, competition, low traffic volumes and the start of the First World War conspired against the success of the GTP. By 1918, the GTP was in negotiations with the federal government to take over not only the GTP but also the parent Grand Trunk Railway. The GTP was forced into receivership in 1919 and was eventually taken over by the government. By 1923, the government rolled several failed railways, including GTP’s competitor the Canadian Northern Railway (CNoR), into one company and formed the Canadian National Railway (CNR). Revisiting the circumstances of April 7, 1914, and the GTP last spike ceremony, some question whether April 7th was intended to be the date in history to be remembered for the GTP. It is agreed that this was the date the tracks from the east actually first met the tracks from the west but it is speculated that this wasn’t really to be the formal ceremony. It is documented that GTP management had talked about two events, one being the actual physical connection of the tracks and then later, when the final touches to the rail line were complete, a ceremonial highly publicized event with a golden spike would take place, in the same way as the last spike on the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) was done two decades earlier. Part of the speculation is as a result of the number of conflicting accounts of who actually drove the last spike. It seems the facts suggest no one actually knows for sure who drove the last spike. Some credit then-GTP president Edson Chamberlin but there are reports he was actually in Montreal when it happened. Still others think it might have been GTP chief engineer B.B. Kelliher or GTP vice-president and general manager Morley Donaldson or GTP superintendent McCall, finally, that it might have actually been the west construction foreman Peter Tityrn or

east foreman Philip Egan who drove the last spike. There apparently were several spikes driven by various officials before the actual last spike and there are some photos of the event but they don’t clearly identify who drove the LAST SPIKE. The fact that GTP president Chamberlin, the highest ranking GTP official, was not at the April 7th event would support the thought that April 7th was not to be the formal last spike ceremony. The circumstances of the cost of construction, the threat of bankruptcy, world war and recession may have all conspired together to prevent the formal ceremony with a golden spike. The GTP was completed but likely not in the fashion it was dreamed of in 1903 by Charles Hays. It finished more with a whimper than a bang. The location of the last spike is a little clearer, accounts talk about east of the Nechako River Crossing or near Fort Fraser or at Fort Fraser. All are actually true, the site was near the east end of the upper Nechako River crossing about one mile east of the Fort Fraser station. The first train across the track was pulled by engine No. 112 and arrived in Prince Rupert on April 9th at 1:15 in the afternoon.

Today there is not much to see at Pacific. Very few buildings remain and the only remains of the roundhouse is the moss covered foundation and a pile of red bricks. There was a brief interest in reviving Pacific in the 1970s when a former regional district planner, with an interest in ghost towns, envisioned a self-sufficient community of people living in Pacific. Though many people were attracted to the idea of Pacific and did buy lots, the idea never did take off and Pacific was not revived. Dorreen is an isolated community located about 48 km northeast of Terrace. Named as a result of the Grand Trunk Pacific (GTP) Railway, after a former GTP engineer Ernest J. Dorreen. The GTP located a station at this site, at Mile 125.5 from Prince Rupert. The Dorreen railway station was constructed in 1913 according to the GTP Standard Design A plan (CNR Plan 100-152), the most common station design used by the GTP in western Canada. The station’s hipped roof with wide bellcast overhang, turret, and large banks of windows all contributed to the formal and aesthetic qualities of this standardized building type. The traditional location for GTP stations was on the north side of the railway tracks in order to take advantage of southern exposures. However, in Dorreen the tracks run north/south necessitating the siting of the station on the east side of the tracks. Its central location in Dorreen was typical of GTP standardized planning. The station included a waiting room, agent’s office, a freight or crew bunk area and living space for the agent and his family. The station was demolished by the CNR in 1971. District Lot 2500, generally accepted as the community of Dorreen, was preempted by Charles Carpenter in 1911. With the arrival of the GTP, the community began to grow and the District Lot was subdivided into 5 and 10 acre lots. The community grew with not only the arrival of the railway but also as a result of local prospecting and mining operations. The town boosted a general store, community hall and school. The general store was built by Thomas McCubbin in 1920, who also operated a store in nearby Pacific. The store was later sold to William and Florence Horwill in about 1935. The store also acted as the post office, mining records office, an office of the justice of the peace and a telegraph office. It operated until its closure in 1960. The community’s population rarely exceeded 50 even with the opening of a mine on Knuass Mountain in 1949. The mine operated by Dorreen Mines Ltd only lasted until 1953. In addition to the railway and the mining, Dorreen was also an agricultural community and families such as the Horwills grew commercial gardens and shipped their produce by train to Prince Rupert. Today, there are only a few permanent and part-time residents of Dorreen, the general store and a number of original buildings remain. The original train station is long gone but the residents maintain a small building near the site of the original station that acts as their station.

EDITORIAL

Star power Northwestern B.C. is now the centre of the universe. Well, maybe that’s slight hyperbole, but on some days, with all the attention we’re getting, it feels that way. At a recent Chamber of Commerce luncheon BC Hydro official Lesley Wood told the audience that eyes in the Lower Mainland are trained on the Terrace region because of its ongoing development surge. From the major debates over oil and gas expansion to the internationally known struggle over the future of the Sacred Headwaters, to the fact that the Terrace housing market has been listed as one of the hottest in the province, there is plenty here to take interest in. One can add to this the concern raised by the Highway of Tears or the National Geographic-level of respect for the nature values of the wildly pristine coast. As SkeenaWild director Greg Knox reminded council last week, existing at the centre comes with responsibility. Knox was specifically referencing the carbon emissions affecting the global climate from western oil and gas development and the need for alternatives and restraint. At the same time innovative engineers and investors are trying to get oil and LNG flowing to Asia ASAP. If the country is watching intently, then the country will remember what it sees. How will the choices we make now be remembered? ESTABLISHED APRIL 27, 1988

Teachable moments in the waiting room

T

errace’s medical lab and the Medical Building’s third floor waiting room offer diehard people watchers like me a cornucopia of entertaining conversations and behaviour unfettered by any concern whatever for privacy. If you share an ailment under discussion, your wait may prove as beneficial as meeting with the relative support group. Once, while waiting to be called in to see my doctor, I found myself subjected to an impromptu lecture on the art of diaper changing. Because I was seated where I couldn’t see the lecturer, I had only her running patter to go by. Who was her intended audience? Many of us were well past child-rearing age. Yet going by the Hear Ye! volume of her vocal delivery, she could have been presenting the intricacies of Pampers switching to 720 hearing impaired novice mothers in an auditorium where the sound system had failed. As she detailed the procedure for changing the baby’s diaper, I gathered from her staccato commands she was attempting to reel in a toddler who never roamed into

CLAUDETTE SANDECKI my view. She was perturbed he was playing with his father’s cell phone which he had filched from her handbag. Fortunately for all of us within range, to some degree his silence offset her midway barker decibel level. Finally, when I was called into my doctor’s office, I walked past her. She had her baby girl lying naked from the waist down on the well trod carpet. The tot’s nakedness accounted for the embarrassed glances from some of her younger male audience. A lesson in family dynamics came to light on one lab visit when I witnessed

the greetings exchanged by two retirement-age ladies who clearly knew each other well. Both were tanned bespeaking Florida holidays. “Have you been fishing this summer?” asked one. The other woman practically snorted. “No way! If I go fishing with the men, all I do is pack in the groceries, cook, clean up, and tidy after the trip. If they want to go fishing, let them look after themselves.” I wanted to cheer. Too often I’ve heard stories of mom left with the scut work while dad and the grown sons fish and kick back with a beer. Another time when I had to zip my lip occurred in the lab when an elderly lady told the lab technician of her unhappiness with the way her husband would mix things up, things like his lab tests and prescription regimen, so that when he returned home he either didn’t or couldn’t tell her what he had learned. That left her uncertain how to care for him, especially his low salt diet. She, too, made no effort to spare the rest of us from her complaints. I gathered her husband had visited the lab alone.

S TANDARD

Due to his advancing age and waning comprehension or memory, he had left, unclear about what had transpired, or any changes to his treatment plan. These were details she needed to be clear about. Her solution was to ask the lab technician to write a note to send home with him of any information she should share. I sympathized with her predicament. I’ve been there. But I would have suggested she accompany him to all medical appointments. As we age, it is advisable for the caretaker spouse to accompany the ailing partner to all doctors’ visits, the lab, and if possible, be present during exams or any tests whether in a doctor’s office or hospital setting. Or have an adult child or trusted friend go along, someone to act as a second set of ears, ask questions, clarify, take notes to keep instructions and information straight. Apprehension may erase everything said to a patient. Go along with the patient. Take notes. Columnist Claudette Sandecki keeps a sharp eye on the world from her home in Thornhill, B.C.

The Mail Bag Picture this, Enbridge Dear Sir: Normally of course I am reassured by the full page Enbridge ads featuring Janet Holder, knowing that she and her team are on the case for all of us. But lately there have been ads that have been somehow different. I noticed that the “pictures” of Dr. Ed Owens and Chris Anderson were not photos, but instead, seemed like either a charcoal drawing of one of those plaster busts that one might see in a museum or a court room artist's pencil sketch. Anyway, after thinking about it further, I’m sure that Janet’s PR team just didn’t have time to get real photos to the newspaper by the deadline. Malcolm Graham, Terrace, B.C.

CONTRIBUTED PHOTO

ENBRIDGE NORTHERN Gateway’s Janet Holder speaks to Terrace and District Chamber Commerce members in November of last year.

What’s in a headline? Plenty Dear Sir: A recent Terrace Standard article is in need of a rebuttal.  The title of the article (online March 27, 2014) reads: “Slim majority of Terrace chamber of commerce members support Enbridge Northern Gateway project.”

I

That title  is terribly misleading. The first paragraph says:  A SMALL majority of Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce members – 51.3 per cent – who filled out an online survey about Enbridge’s planned Northern

Gateway pipeline support the project. Further on in the article it states only 41 of approximately 290 members completed the survey.  So, if only  14 per cent of the chamber members replied to the survey, and if only 51.9

percent of those that replied support the project, that is only approximately seven per cent of the membership that support the project, not a small majority as the title claims. Brenda Gouglas Fort St. James, B.C.

Different rules for officers? Dear Sir: At 6:44 p.m. today (Wednesday, March 26, 2014) I witnessed a female RCMP officer driving one of their new Ford AWD vehicles turning left through the 4-way stop from Hwy 16 westbound onto Hwy 37 southbound, steering one-handed while carrying on a conversation on a hand-held cellular phone. If these new vehicles do not come equipped with hands-free bluetooth systems, I would like to know why not. Had I been doing the same thing, I would deservedly be in possession of a citation for distracted driving. Tim Keenan, Terrace, B.C.

Ship crude by sea? Dangerous nonsense

am against shipping bitumen because of the risk of a spill on our coast. For the last two years I have spent a great deal of time studying oil refineries, oil pipelines and tankers. Bitumen, even if it is diluted, does not float in sea water if there is sediment present. Since there is an abundance of sediment along the BC coast, the bitumen will sink rapidly and there will be little chance of recovering any of it if there is a spill. Refining bitumen before it is loaded into tankers solves this problem because refined fuels float and evaporate. There is a great deal of misinformation being disseminated about the threat to the coast. A senior executive at one of the big oil companies in Canada recently told me their official position is that bitumen doesn’t sink. That is nonsense. The federal government published a thorough study on Nov. 30, 2013 proving that it does sink if there is sediment around. The report is available online. The BC Chamber of Shipping is running ads talking about the advantages of GPS-based navi-

gation and saying spills such as Exxon Valdez would not be possible today because of double hulls and sub-divisions within tankers. Again, this is nonsense. Double hulls do not prevent hull fracture if there is a collision at speed, only if there is a gentle scrape. As for the GPS claim, most marine accidents are caused by human inattention, not by a lack of knowledge about position. All ships carried systems to indicate their location before GPS came along. The Exxon Valdez crew could have glanced at their instruments to determine their location but they didn’t. The crew on the Queen of the North also didn’t do so. Marine disasters regularly occur and a quick search of the internet shows human error is usually the problem. There will be more accidents in future. Our research has shown us that modern pipelines can be built and operated safely. Leak data is available for everyone to see on Canadian and US government websites and it proves recently constructed pipelines are not

GUEST COMMENT

DAVID BLACK leaking. Furthermore some of the best pipe line companies in the world are based in Canada. Unfortunately we cannot have the same level of confidence about tankers which are the most critical component involving the shipment of oil because recovery is so difficult. Exxon Valdez carried light oil and lost 250,000 barrels (the equivalent of 17 Olympic swimming pools). The light oil floated for the most part and could be

washed off beaches. Even so, after four years of work with up to 11,000 workers and 1,400 boats involved, less than 10 per cent was recovered. Bitumen is very different. It would harden up on shore and much of it would sink to the bottom and be unrecoverable. If we lost a tanker load, which is eight times greater than the Exxon Valdez spill, we would destroy the coast and fishery for hundreds of years. We should build a state-of-the art refinery at Kitimat to remove any chance of a bitumen spill at sea. And of a refinery is built in Asia and not in Kitimat, and it will emit double the CO2 of our new design. An Asian refinery will also generate 100 train cars a day of very dirty coke which will be subsequently burnt in the atmosphere to create power. The Kitimat refinery will not result in the production of any coke. It is far better for the global environment to build this refinery in Canada. Construction of the refinery will create 6,000 jobs here for

five years and approximately 3,000 skilled, highly-paid jobs afterward for the life of the refinery which should be in excess of 50 years. There will be thousands of spinoff jobs. It is also our intention to build a safe pipeline and a fleet of new tankers, powered by LNG rather than Bunker C oil, to transport refined products to Asia. We have a solid business plan and as a consequence the money is available to build the greenest and most efficient refinery in the world. I am for creating thousands of good permanent jobs in BC, billions in new tax dollars, for reducing the planet’s greenhouse gas emissions and for building an oil pipeline that will never leak. I am for building a new tanker fleet, owned by a BC company that cannot shirk its liability for a spill at sea, and that carries refined fuels that float and evaporate if spilled. David Black is the CEO of Kitimat Clean, the proponent of a $32 billion oil refinery project. He is also the majority owner of Black Press which includes The Terrace Standard.

Makeover money available for downtown businesses By ANNA KILLEN SOME BUSINESSES in the downtown core are set to be spruced up over the spring and summer. A grant of $20,000 was applied for and received by the city from Northern Development Initiative Trust's (NDIT) Business Facade Improvement Program, and businesses will be able to apply for a portion of that money in the coming weeks. “If a building is in the downtown core within our boundaries, and that runs from City Hall down to the legion and a couple of blocks up from the railway tracks up to Park Ave. for the most part, then they can apply,” explained Terrace Downtown Improvement Area (TDIA) Coordinator Dennis Lissimore. This program is in line with what TDIA heard from community members in last year's downtown study, he said. “One of the comments out of the downtown study was about unsightly buildings,” he said. “This gives us some ability to help some of those people out, get the front of their buildings cleaned up and

awnings, signage. Landscaping, paving, fencing, wheelchair ramps, roofs and patios are not eligible. Lissimore said the TDIA is still working out its own guidelines about what facade improvements it would like to most focus on, but said those should be available next week when the program applications begin to roll out. Murals – either new ones or touching up old ones – are something they are considering, as well. One issue downtown businesses struggle with when it comes to fixing up their buildings is that some business FILE PHOTO owners do not own the actual TDIA COORDINATOR Dennis Lissimore says 2013’s building. “You have a business that's downtown survey showed community members wanted in the property that wants to do downtown buildings cleaned up. something but it's actually the building owner that has to do maybe more consistent with minimum amounts of $1,000 the work and we have quite a some of the other buildings on to a maximum of $5,000 and whack of absentee landlords the properties.” are to be matched by the busi- and that's where the problem A committee made up of ness.

Wrong turn leads to house arrest A MAN who crossed the U.S. border from Stewart into Hyder, Alaska with $80,000 cash in a hidden bag and then lied to a customs officer about it will spend his sentence in the community. Benjamin Fromme, 28, will spend three months on a conditional sentence order with conditions and pay a fine of $2,500 as ordered by Judge Calvin Struyk in provincial court here March 12. When asked by Struyk if he had anything to say, Fromme apologized to the court. “I realize I made a terrible mistake. At the time, I was under financial hardship and saw an easy way to make a quick couple of bucks, and to say I haven’t paid for it is an understatement,” said Fromme. “I’m sorry for what I did. I’d also like the court to know I didn’t dishonour the Bible I swore on. Every word [of testimony] was the truth and to think I haven’t paid the price so far is not accurate... You’ll never be seeing me here again.” Just after 2 a.m., Nov. 6, 2010, the Canadian Border Services Agency officer at the Canada customs office on the border between Hyder, Alaska and Stewart, B.C. saw a vehicle drive past into Hyder, stop briefly, then turn around and attempt to re-enter Canada, court heard. The driver told the customs officer he had got lost on his way to Smithers and needed directions to get there, court heard. When asked, he told her he was going to Smithers to buy quad ATV vehicles and repeated that he was lost and needed directions, court heard. When asked if he’d purchased anything in Hyder or if he had any currency in excess of $10,000 with him or coming into the country afterward, he said no and that he thought he only had $100 or so, court heard.

In the vehicle, the customs officer found a blanket covering a bag containing stacks of money and the number $80,000 written in gold print, so she asked him again how much money there was, court heard. He said more than $10,000, court heard. She placed him under arrest, handcuffed him and told him it was for failing to properly declare the money as required. She continued the search of the car and found the money totalled nearly $80,000, including U.S. currency. During his trial,

while giving his testimony, Fromme said because of his financial problems, when a close personal friend offered to pay him $2,500 for carrying $80,000 from Whitehorse, Yukon Territory where Fromme lives, to Smithers, B.C. he accepted, said Struyk in reviewing the circumstances before sentencing. Fromme suspected the money he was carrying to be from marijuana trafficking, court heard. In his wallet, he had a person’s contact number on a piece of paper, which he ate when

stopped by the customs officer on his way back into B.C., court heard. “Based on the evidence, I have no difficulty [believing] Mr. Fromme knew the money he was transporting came from narcotics,” said Struyk. Fromme had no intention of leaving the country when he left the Yukon; however, he did choose to participate in, and benefit from, the illegal narcotics trade by transporting money and he is intelligent, articulate and capable of assessing the risk, said Struyk. The circumstances

occurred through a set of errors, including missing the turnoff to Smithers and ending up in Stewart, crossing an international border into the U.S. and then lying to a customs officer, said Struyk. Fromme was not involved in narcotics otherwise, court heard. “I certainly hope it’s his last foray into narcotics,” said Struyk. He noted that Fromme had no criminal record, had been on conditions since November 2010 without problem and had the support of family and friends.

Kia taking on the small cars from the big guys

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIFORNIA – Kia rounds out its attack on the country’s best-selling cars with the launch of the final two models to the Forte lineup. Last year Kia introduced their all-new Forte sedan to compete with such top sellers as the Honda Civic, Mazda3, Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Elantra. This week, the 5-door hatchback version called Forte5 and the coupe, called Forte Koup begin arriving in dealerships. The launch of these two vehicles took us from Huntington Beach, California, through the mountains and desert to Borrego Springs and then back through the mountains to San Diego. The terrain varies from massive California highways to very twisty mountain passes and vast desert valleys. Stunning scenery and a recommended drive for any sightseer or driving enthusiast. Looks The Forte5 is the more practical of the two new Kias with a hatchback design that sets it apart from the competition. Many competitors don’t offer a hatch so this is sure to be noticed by people who need extra storage and passenger room. Sold with a new base 2.0L engine or an optional 1.6L turbo engine, there are varied looks depending on which trim is chosen. The non-turbo Forte5 gets a front grille similar to the sedan with a smaller lower intake and a larger grille opening. The Forte5 SX turbo gets the same grille as the Koup, with the opposite

Dart GT could be edgier but delivers value By Alexandra Straub

The Dodge Dart has held its own in a sporty compact segment where competition is fierce. Perhaps it is because of its value, the various engine Whether taking choices or that it has some the GT for a drive pretty cool features (like available under-the-front- in the city or on the seat-cushion storage) and open road, it does a fresh style – inside and have some solid legs out – the Dart seems to to stand on. be a hit. Two years in, Chrysler has Alexandra Straub loaded it up with an engine full of gusto, unique styling cues and added a couple of letters on the back and now we have the Dodge Dart GT. What sets it apart from its siblings are a stretched-down grille and LED headlights. You’ll find the rear clad with the ‘Racetrack’ LED lights that run the full length of the trunk. Then there’s a set of 18-inch wheels come standard on this vehicle along with a 2.4L, MultiAir, 4-cylinder Tigershark engine, matched with a 6-speed manual transmission, that brings to the pavement 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. Of all the characteristics I like about this trim of Dart, I think its transmission is the weakest link. In previous reviews of other Dart models – like the 1.4L, Turbocharged version with 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque – the gear throws are, in my opinion, too long to really give it that edge and sporty vibe that it needs to compete with vehicles like the VW GTI, Honda Civic Si or even the Ford Focus ST. The gear throws are long and the clutch has little weight to it, taking away the performance aspect of the GT that it should have. On the flip side, the light clutch works favourably in the urban environment. This setup makes being stuck in traffic bearable. Getting back to the gearbox, I really wanted to like the Dart more. I really did. So I concocted scenarios in my mind to figure out a way to not be so sad about its lack of panache. I think I found one. Buyers of the GT will like what they get for the value. After all, it has a starting MSRP of $21,995. That’s thousands less than the aforementioned competitors. And some buyers of vehicles who want that extra kick don’t necessarily need all the sports sedan-like characteristics. They want power but in a comfortable and affordable package. Furthermore, they enjoy added touches like a leatherwrapped heated steering wheel, GT specific sport leather

seats, a Parkview rear backup camera and more. The interior has a pleasant look to it and it’s very agreeable to drive. On the highway, special attention from designers and engineers were paid to make sure you drive in a quiet cabin. Minimal road noise entered the GT’s cabin, allowing my passengers and I to enjoy the musical stylings of various bands being listened to on the Alpine premium stereo system with nine speakers (an additional $1,295 for this sun and sound package.) The sun portion of the package adds a power express open/close sunroof to the mix. After I switched into this mindset, I found I was able to alleviate my frustrations of what the GT didn’t have, but what it did have. Additionally, a feature that I love about the Dart – and all other Dodge/Jeep/Chrysler products – is the Uconnect media interface. The GT comes standard with the 8.4-inch touchscreen and is a dream to work with. Large icons, easy prompts and a no-fuss approach to pairing your handheld device to the Bluetooth system all come standard. Whether taking the GT for a drive in the city or on the open road, it does have some solid legs to stand on.

Marvelling at a new Mercedes in Marseille By Bob McHugh

Marseille, France – The midsized C-Class is the most popular and affordable Mercedes-Benz sedan and about 8.5 million of them have been produced, since it was originally introduced in 1993. Mercedes engineering typically operates on a seven-year “circle of life” production run and an all-new generation of C-Class will arrive in Canada, as a 2015 model year vehicle, this summer. In brief, it’s a bigger and better CClass, however, real progress is in the details. This C-Class is lighter, safer, comes with a choice of two more powerful (yet more fuel-efficient) new engines, uses even more ad-

vanced technologies, plus its body is more aerodynamic and, to my eyes, better looking. The South of France global launch location, even though I had to share it with over 800 other auto hacks, was another nice bonus - more later... There’s no pricing available at this time, but we do know the initial trim levels offered in Canada will be a C300 and a C400. A sporty AMG edition, called the C63, will also be added to the line in January 2015. Although not official, a diesel edition is also expected to be added in 2015. At this event Mercedes was also showing a Euro-destined hybriddiesel edition. An optional (Airmatic) air suspension is offered for the first time in C-Class.

It allows a driver to choose between Comfort, Eco, Sport, and Sport+ settings via an Agility Select switch on the console. The 4MATIC all-wheel drive system is, as before, the other major option. Also available is a Sport Package that includes AMG trim upgrades, wheels and front brake system. The C-class has classic rear-drive vehicle proportions with a long hood (with a choice of two front grilles) and a short rear deck. It looks like a smaller version of the top-line, and redesigned last year, S-class, especially the new LED headlights and taillights. Compared to the current C-Class it’s longer, lower and wider continued on page 15

Confessions of a Curber

Noodling on the web one morning I found out that I was selling vehicles illegally. If I was in the business of selling, I need to be licensed as a dealer. Oh well. Everything’s been working out just fine for me. I skated through those recent bad deals. My previous sales were a distant memory – I was eager to start selling more. So, I decided to up my game a bit. I got a low-end truck and a car from an auction and another car from a new parking lot friend. I put ads for all three vehicles on Craigslist. Of course my ads said they were all real gems. You’d think people might see through my ads. “Need to sell fast, so price is flexible. Call with best offer.” And my cell number was the same for all three. Would anybody notice? The first two cheaper vehicles sold quickly. The last one took a bit longer to sell. Of course, it was the one I was most eager to sell. Why, you ask? Well, not that I passed the information along, but the auction provided vehicle history reports for the first two. I had no information on the last. So, I bought ICBC and CarProof vehicle history reports. I wanted to educate myself. To my surprise, there was a statement in both reports that the vehicle was possibly “stolen*.” I knew I had to sell it fast. I mean, I’d paid for it and I knew my new “friend” wouldn’t take it back. Four days later, I got a call from a young

“Apart from being stolen, it was pretty nice!” woman. She asked if the car would fit a family of four. “Definitely!” I practically screamed. I was a wreck during this sale. I just needed to get rid of this car – fast. I told the nice lady the details of the car. Apart from being stolen, it was pretty nice! I told her I was in a hurry to visit my mum in the hospital. She was in a hurry too – her three-year-old was anxious, pulling at her pant legs. She seemed to not want to be there as much as me. Finally, she agreed to buy the car. Phew! I was saved. Whatever happens next, I don’t care. It’s her problem not mine. I quickly changed my phone number (again). Weeks later, I saw her on the news – with kid still at pant legs – talking to a reporter. Apparently, the car was towed away by the police. And yes, she was trying to find me. Had I covered my tracks? I agonized.

*How can a stolen vehicle be sold? Curbers often break the law by bridging a title. Instead of registering a vehicle in their name within 10 days after a purchase, as required, they leave it in the name of the previous owner. This keeps their name out of the chain of title and from being caught with a stolen vehicle or one that would not be able to be registered or insured for another reason.

wider and is now close in size to a 90s E-Class. Its extended wheelbase also helps create more interior space, especially for rear seat passengers. The big change under-hood is a four-cylinder turbocharged 2.0-litre, in the C300, that’s max rated at 235 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. While it produces more power than the outgoing base V6, I found the initial power surge, when you push on the gas pedal, overly aggressive. In fairness, the North American edition will come with different throttle mapping. The twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 in the C400, on the other hand, is a beauty. It can pump-out up to 329

horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. More importantly, it does so in a quieter, smoother and effortless fashion that most drivers expect when at the wheel of a Mercedes. Both engines come with idle fuel saving start/stop systems and are mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission. The list of standard and available high-tech active safety features is simply amazing. It includes almost everything that’s available in the top-line S-Class, which is touted as the world’s safest car.

Bordering on frivolous, there’s an Air-Balance in-car perfuming system ... to prolong that new-car Mercedes smell. Another one is a GPS-linked climate-control system tech feature that automatically switches it to “recirculation” mode when a C-Class is driven into a tunnel. The test drive actually did include a few tunnels and there are lots of them in and under Marseille.

Dogs provide emotional support to veterans

MARGARET SPEIRS PHOTO

■■ Tax time CATHERINE MARQUIS from the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program helps with Rory Doell’s income taxes at the Happy Gang Centre April 1. Free assistance from a volunteer at the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) is available for those eligible, which includes aboriginal people, individuals and social assistance recipients, newcomers to Canada, seniors and students. The Happy Gang Centre offers the service on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to noon until April 29 in its basement. The centre and basement are wheelchair accessible.

THE ROYAL Canadian Legion in BC/Yukon is involved in a program whereby Veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be partnered with specially trained dogs that assist them with daily jobs and activities, and more importantly, these dogs provide the Veteran with emotional support. Just a few of the things these dogs are trained for are: Assisting the Veteran to find exits, Alerting outside help during a crisis, Waking Veterans from night terrors, Rousing the Veteran from fear paralysis, And many, many more tasks. The dogs can also be trained to assist Veterans with reduced mobility and other medical conditions. This training costs $10,000 a year for each dog and the Legion is planning on training 10 dogs in 2014. For training and delivery of this program, the Legion works

with Courageous Companions, an organization that trains PTSD Service Dogs. All expenses for adoption, one-on-one training, vet check ups, even food if necessary, are free to a Veteran who is suffering from Clinically Diagnosed PTSD. And yes, Branch #13 in Terrace donates to the Legion Foundation that sponsors this program from monies raised in this generous community. How does the Legion in Terrace raise the money for donations to such worthwhile causes? In some cases limited amounts can be donated from the Poppy Fund because this is exclusively for Veterans in need. Monies the Branch raises at such activities as Garage Sales, Meat Draws and Steak Nights goes toward charities such as these and also to needy projects here at home – i.e. equipment for the hospital. Coming up the weekend of

April 26, the Branch will be hosting a zone meeting for all the Legions in the Northwest. All members are invited to attend the meetings which commence at 9 a.m. on Saturday April 26, and on that evening commencing at 6:30 p.m,. there will be a special Steak Night. This is open to all members and bona fide guests whether or not you attended the meetings. The Ladies Auxiliary is holding a pie sale in the Branch on April 12 and we all know how good those pies are. Come on out and you can get a whole pie instead of just one slice. Looking ahead to May 10, the Legion will be hosting a garage sale from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend this function and donations are welcome. Applications for membership will be available – you too could be a Legionnaire. We will Remember Them.

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.

Apply today for a TD Mortgage

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.

With various mortgage interest rates, terms and special offers, you can find the mortgage that’s right for you.

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.

Enviro-groups press city for LNG review By JOSH MASSEY REPRESENTATIVES FROM two regional sustainability groups asked city council April 1 to vote in favour of a push for a combined environmental and economic assessment of proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects. The request was included in a presentation by Nadia Nowak representing the Northwest Institute, a Smithersbased nonprofit advocacy group focused on sustainable development, and Greg Knox, director of SkeenaWild Conservation Trust. Council heard and responded to the research conducted by both groups into the environmental impacts of up to 15 pipeline and LNG processing plant proposals for the region. “It's coming at us fast and furious,” said mayor Dave Pernarowski after their presentation, which examined the implication of a potential $100 billion flooding into Northwest industrial development, altering life for those in the area while also being integral to the global economy and environment. Knox argued that a comprehensive environmental review guided by both historical and current data would enable the provincial and federal governments to make wise decisions about coming LNG developments. Such a request is currently submitted to the North Central Local Government Association (NCLGA) in the form of a resolution that will be voted on by members of local governments attending the AGM May 7 to 9 in Fort St. John. The resolution requests “that NCLGA requests that the Province of BC and First Nations convene and co-chair a Strategic Economic and Environmental Impact Assessment of LNG development in British Columbia.” Both Knox and Nowak displayed stats and graphs to council that showed the environmental effects if all

Greg Knox, SkeenaWild five of the LNG facilities proposed for Kitimat and Prince Rupert went through. They showed that this maximal scenario would see total greenhouse gas emissions of three-quarters that of the Alberta oil sands by 2020. Knox also raised the spectre of what hugely increased nitrogen oxide emissions from the burning of gas used to supercool the LNG to 160 degrees below zero, for transport by ship to foreign markets, would mean for the Terrace-Kitimat area airshed. Research he presented shows a 500 per cent increase of nitrogen oxide, a compound that has similar effects as sulphur dioxide, which

is another emission the Rio Tinto Alcan modernization project is already going to increase in its enhanced operation. Effects of both types of emission cause respiratory problems for at-risk groups such as those with asthma, and have an impact on rainbow trout, amphibians, steelhead and local plants due to acid rain, said Knox. Councillor Bruce Bidgood said council could “advocate for dual drives” to electrify the LNG cooling facilities using hydro power as a partial alternative to gas, though Knox said the Ministry of Energy and Mines has already made a decision to use gas generation as the sole means to generate power for the plants. Councillor Brian Downie pointed out some uncertainty surrounding the numbers and stats presented, which Knox and Nowak acknowledged, saying that the research they have done is only the beginning. Concern raised by their preliminary findings led them to the conclusion that a unified assessment needs to be done. “Because there is so much uncertainty in communities, they are

trying to play catchup,” said Nowak, citing 10,000 workers projected to have come to the area if the major LNG projects go through. Downie reminded them that the Northwest is in need of a sustainable economy as well as a sustainable environment. Knox illustrated that some of the LNG proposals don't make sense environmentally and economically, for instance the dredging of the sea bottom around Lulu Island where the Pacific Northwest LNG terminal is to be built, where he said long-recognized vital salmon habitat exists. Bidgood said that he thinks overall Terrace city council sees LNG development in a favourable light. But he also agreed with the motion to advocate for a cumulative impact assessment at NCLGA, after which individual councils could table their own resolutions. Knox said the provincial government has finished an airshed impact study for Kitimat and area which he is hoping will be released this month. Councillor Lynne Christiansen thanked Knox and Nowak for “their guardianship.”

Thornhill, businesses left out of recycling By JOSH MASSEY WHEN THE new curbside recycling program comes to life in Terrace May 19, the service will not be offered in Thornhill or to businesses. This has caused some to call for a broader system that includes not only Thornhill but all of greater Terrace and policies that encourage commercial recycling. Multi-Material BC (MMBC) is the organization overseeing a province-wide curbside collection program for participating municipalities to collect paper, cardboard and other packaging of consumer projects in a system paid for entirely by the businesses that produce the packaged products. According to Regional District of Kitimat Stikine (RDKS) director manager Roger Tooms, Thornhill didn’t qualify for an MMBC incentive because it doesn’t have curbside garbage collection like is offered in the City of Terrace. But now the regional

district has put out a request for proposals for curbside garbage collection and if it succeeds in finding a contractor, then Tooms wants MMBC to consider contributing to a recycling program for the greater Terrace area. “The curbside collection of refuse and recycling for the Terrace area—for Thornhill, North Terrace, Lakelse Lake, Jackpine Flats, Gossen Creek all the way up to Usk and New and Old Remo—all of these we are considering for a curbside refuse collection program,” said Tooms. “In a parallel process, we are asking for a request for quotes to provide a collection of the MMBC materials. We’re looking for quotes to pick up the MMBC material from the curb and trip it off somewhere so we can consider this additional service,” he added. That way the RDKS could qualify for an incentive such as Terrace receives, which is approximately $134,000

per year based on population. “We made it clear through the board that we intend on initiating a curbside collection program for the (greater) Terrace area and we want to be collecting the MMBC product and we want to be able to be compensated and we want to drop that product off at the processing facility that is going to serve the Terrace area,” said Tooms, noting there is no set timeline for the projects. Currently, recycling material is slated to be processed through the Do Your Part facility owned by Casey Lewis, which is being retrofitted to accommodate the curbside material dropped off by city trucks beginning this May. Another option would be a separate drop-off depot of some sort, said Tooms, but so far that hasn’t been a feasible option within the MMBC system. The MMBC program also does not pay for commercial recy-

cling, and local government and business people like regional district environmental services coordinator Margaret Kujat and Rob Geier, owner of Geier Waste Services, have pointed out that to really cut down on material entering landfills that commercial recycling would be a necessity. Terrace sustainability coordinator Tara Irwin agrees with this principle, but said it’s not within the mandate of the city to provide commercial recycling. “I agree that diverting commercial material is a very important piece of the overall diversion puzzle, we would be challenged to ‘institute’ commercial recycling collection, as there has not been a feasible opportunity for diversion for many of the major commercial producers, and it is not within our municipal function to set up a commercial recycling facility,” Irwin said in an email. Right now, businesses can have their recycling picked up by Do

Your Part, or use Waste Management Services, both private operations. Irwin said that what the city can do to incentivize recycling for commercial enterprise is to ban certain materials from the landfill, which it has already

done with rubber tires. She said they might ban cardboard as well. “As more recycling options become available for the commercial sector, we will continue to look at the possibility of a cardboard ban at the City of Terrace

landfill,” said Irwin. The MMBC program is being opposed by a number of business groups, including the BC and Yukon Community Newspapers Association, of which The Terrace Standard is a member.

TERRACE’S JOHN Evans (back middle) and his rink won the Bear Creek Contracting B event – in an extra end with a final draw to the button for the win – at the 59th Loggers Bonspiel in Terrace two weekend ago. On the left is lead Gordie Olson and on the right is third Andrew Simpson.

Loggers Bonspiel draws a crowd CURLERS FROM all over the northwest descended on Terrace two weekends ago for the 59th Loggers Bonspiel, Terrace’s largest curling event of the season. The Johnny Williams Memorial A event trophy, sponsored by Remax Coast Mountains, was won by the Vanderstar Team from Smithers – skip Ron Vanderstar, third Adam Harnett, second Len Vanderstar, and lead Al Wiensczyk. They beat team Kennedy for the trophy. John Evans of Terrace, with skip

John Evans, third Andrew Simpson, second Brent Rodgers, and lead Gordie Olsen, beat team Rauter from Terrace to win the Bear Creek Contracting B event. Michael Dahms of Prince George beat team Illing from Kitimat in the Spring Creek Aggregates C event – skip Michael Dahms, third Chris Calder, second JT Blanchet, and lead Matt Gyorfi. The Hawkair D event was won by Les Kutenics of Terrace – skip Les Kutenics, third Jules Lafrance,

second Aaron Budden, and lead Clinton Budden. They beat Morgan from Kitimat. The boat races at the mugup was won by skip Chad Sallenback, third Warren Copeland, second Shane Dejong, and lead Dave Reniero from Terrace. And John Kennedy won the Totem Ford Hot Shot Challenge. It was a great bonspiel that all the volunteers made a huge success. Next year’s 60th annual should bring 48 teams to Terrace.

TERRACE’S CAM Hundal will be staying in Victoria, signing on with the Victoria Highlanders FC for the 2014 Premier Development League season after three successful years with the University of Victoria Vikes. “Playing with UVic over the past few years has enabled me to become familiar with the players, staff, fans, and city so the transition won’t be difficult,” said Hundal. He finished his third year of eligibility in a tie as the teams leading goal scorer, and posted 13 points (11 goals, 2 assists) in 14 regular season games over the 2013 season. “Obviously since the Vikes won nationals in 2011 Cam has been a popular figure in this town and we know his talent and that he’s a good quality player,” said Highlanders head coach Steve Simonson. Following UVic’s CIS national championship win in 2011, Hundal was named both a CIS Tournament MVP and CIS Tournament All-Star. In 2011, he was also Canada West Rookie of the Year and was named a Canada West All-Star in each of his first three collegiate years. “He’s caused us grief as a Whitecap,” said Simonson. “He can run, dribble, set-up and score goals. He’s a player I’ve had my eye on for a couple of years.” Hundal spent several years as a member of the Vancouver Whitecaps prospect and U-23

Cam Hundal programs. “I love to embrace new challenges,” said Hundal. “I believe it is an essential part of growing as a player. Changing the environment I play in will enable me to learn, improve and hopefully open up some new doors in the future. The Highlanders are a great organization, and they proved it last year. I think one of the reasons this team is so successful is because all members of the organization have the same intended goal - to win a PDL Championship.” And he’ll be joining several familiar faces on the pitch, as a number of former Vikes are on the Highlander squad. “It’s always fun to play with players that you know so well, but it’s also very beneficial as we know each other’s tendencies. It helps to build chemistry within the team, which is extremely useful in a league where the season is so short.” Hundal and the Highlanders kick-off their 2014 PDL campaign May 4.

Dale qualifies for skating provincials TERRACE’S ONLY Special Olympic skater is making the northwest proud. Laura Dale, 22, qualified for provincials at the Totem Skating Competition in Fort. St. John March 1 and 2, skating above standard in the Level 3 Special Olympics event. It’s year one of a four year cycle in Special Olympics competition, and this was Dale’s first time at qualifiers. Special Olympics provincials are February, 2015 in Kamloops. “This is the best thing that ever happened to me,” said Dale, who is in her sixth year of figure skating with the Terrace Skating Club.

To qualify, Dale skated a required element routine and a freeskate solo to music from Romeo and Juliet. The slow piece allows Laura to show off her interpretation and emotion, combined with jumps and spins. Her spins include the ‘back spin’ and the ‘sit spin’. Her jumps consist of ‘waltz jump, toe-loop jump, and salchow jump’. She also had a chance to meet Level 6 Special Olympics Skater Darlene Jakubowski. From Dawson Creek, Jakubowski has progressed past provincials to nationals and on to the Special Olympics world championships twice.

And the Terrace Skating Club’s winter season is winding down, with skaters returning from the final tournament in Kelowna with strong results. Newcomer Maya Lecuyer brought home two silver medals and Jorden Hendry, in her final competition with club, bringing home a bronze. “We are going to miss her very much,” said the club’s Elaine Sanchez of Hendry, who is off to university in the fall. The club now moves to spring school in Kitimat, and plans on keeping the athletes motivated with a spring/summer off ice schedule with gymnastics, yoga, off ice jumps, and strengthening.

Shogun Dojo takes on Tiger Balm FOR THE first time as an independent club, Terrace’s Shogun Dojo took to the ring at Vancouver’s Tiger Balm competition – and they did not disappoint. The 12 fighters – some as young as seven – found they were competitive against Lower Mainland clubs and brought home scores of medals to prove it. “This is the first time as an independent club that we brought small kids to a large competition – and we did amazing,” said sensei Amber Pipe. “The most impressive to me was their kata, and that’s thanks to sensei Karin Lots. She focusses on kata and she’s spent a lot of time working with the kids and it really paid off.” Indeed, almost all of the younger athletes said that kata was their favourite part of the tournament, with nine-year-old Mary Bell saying karate helps her remember to “try your best.” And four athletes qualified for Team Canada – Robbie Cline, Nick Yasinchuk, Shawn Devcic, and Farren Devcic – and there were a number of unexpected wins for first time tournament attendees. “I knew it was possible, I didn’t actually expect it to happen,” said Yasinchuk, of qualifying for Team Canada. “That was a cool feeling,” said his teammate, Cline. Tiger Balm was his second tournament, and while he said he was less nervous this

e continued North on the Arlington-Darrington Highway. The land changed from farm to forests. Just past the Lake Cavanaugh Road we turned south at Oso, the small hamlet that had built up around the Deer Creek confluence. A warm wind riffled the leaves of hardwood trees. In the shade of those trees were a handful of small buildings, bigger than huts but smaller than cabins. There were larger cabins too. The smaller structures, big enough for a bed, a table, a hot plate, and an ice box, were obviously the seasonal abodes – some rented, others owned – of the anglers who had arrived each summer since the 1920s to fish the fabled steelhead bound for Deer Creek. Bob must rent one of these places, I said to Karen, referring to the flyfisherman we’d met on the river just above the Cicero Bridge. Bob, I learned years later after reading his book Steelhead Water, then discussing it with my dear friend, Bob Taylor, was Bob Arnold, an Oso regular, was a central figure in the fight to save Deer Creek from the ravages timber mining. Walt Johnson lived in Oso year round at that time. I’d read about his exploits with small bamboo rods and floating flies. I spoke to Walt twice. He had a wealth of information and many intriguing theories about the way steelhead react to flies. But, what struck me in particular was his

were able to adapt to the different styles at the tournament. “Nick got in there and won gold in two division and silver in his other division, that’s pretty good considering he’s never fought San shou or kickboxing with leg kicks,” he said.

And Adrian Babcock, new to the dojo and in his first year of kickboxing, also exceeded expectations. “He had a very big continuous category and won every fight except the last one for gold,” said Sangha. “He was 6’5”,” interjects Babcock, who before

But he stuck to his training. “I train with Robbie, he’s a big guy... bob and weave, bob and weave.” Pipe said the tournament proved the club is on the right track. “I think the dojo is doing the best it’s ever done in 15 years. We’ve got some very dedicated students and I think we have a lot of room to grow together as a team and a family. I couldn’t be prouder,” she said, noting the support of community businesses like Trigo’s and Terrace Totem Ford for helping the club grow.

Tears began to appear as small earth flows began in the land below, then, in 2006 a major slump reached the valley bottom pushing the Stillaguamish toward the village. At 11 in the morning of March 22nd, the rest of the slide buried Oso. The death toll rises in the worst disaster in the history of Washington State. The Oso tragedy wasn’t an act of God. It was an act of man – specifically poor logging practises on unstable land. The Oso slide was presaged by the DeForest slide. Both slides could have been prevented if the government agencies had managed logging in such a way as to ensure the integrity of every fish bearing stream and the welfare of its denizens. Doing this would have meant careful road building, selective harvesting, significantly reduced cut blocks, no logging on steep slopes, aggressive restocking of sites, and large protected riparian zones. Fish, as Bob and Walt, and the many anglers concerned for the welfare of Deer Creek understood, are at the centre of things; taking care of fish is ecologically and economically sound and doing so can avert disasters. It’s a shame more people didn’t pay the anglers of Deer Creek much heed. If they had, and acted accordingly, the water of Deer Creek would still be clear and as cold as ice, a thousand steelhead would return to it every year, and, Oso wouldn’t be lying under a sea of mud today.

Chamber stands by Enbridge position THE TERRACE and District Chamber of Commerce said it’s standing by its position to support the Northern Gateway Project despite criticism that too few of its members filled out the survey. The Chamber had canvassed its 290 members with a series of questions related to whether they agree with the Gateway project that would pump Alberta crude to a terminal in Kitimat for marine export by tanker. Despite the fact that only one in seven – or approximately 40 members – filled out the survey, the chamber board still released the results and declared its support for the project. Several people did a statistical analysis of the survey method to see if it could accurately conclude that more than 50 per cent of the overall chamber membership is actually in support of the Enbridge project. Councillor James Cordeiro said that according to a statistic equation he learned at university the sample size of 40 out of 390 would mean a 14 per cent margin of error. In other words that if the survey was repeated any number of times support could be anywhere from 36 to 64 per cent support. “You can’t say they are or are not against it based on those numbers,” said Cordeiro. But according to chamber director Carol Fielding, the decision was made to share the numbers that they did have not as an act of science but rather to communicate the results they did get. “The committee got together and were disappointed because we didn’t get the return we had hoped for and promoted to get. They felt there was good information in what we did get and we wanted to figure out how to share that information,” she said. “We have a couple of statistically thinking minds on the board and they took the numbers and decided that was what the message would be.” Others wondered why the Chamber hadn’t followed through on a previous decision to not release the num-

bers if less than fifty percent of members filled out the survey. “We did what we said we were going to do,” Fielding explains. “We said we would do a survey and we did. The only thing that shifted

was when we didn’t get 50 per cent responding, we then felt there was information we wanted to share.... It was quite innocently done, actually.” “Some people might have been worried that

the information would leak out,” she said of the majority of vast majority of businesses who stayed silent. This story generated a lot of online discussion. Bruce Bidgood weighed in with this

comment through Facebook: “A statement of statistical support cannot be concluded from these data particularly in light of the psychometric bias in the construction of the survey

wherein every single question presumed construction of the pipeline. All questions were founded on a WHEN basis...not a question queried about whether the pipeline SHOULD be constructed. Finally,

the study itself was UNETHICAL in requesting disclosure of identity...” Fielding said that the names of businesses were not looked at by the board when the count was conducted.

“Every river crossing is unique and will be met with proven world-class engineering solutions.” – Ray Doering, P. Eng. Lead Engineer, Northern Gateway Director of Project Services, Northern Gateway

Meet the expert:

Northern Gateway understands and respects British Columbia’s unique environment. That is why we have detailed engineering and environmental plans for each unique river crossing. GUIDANCE FROM LEADING EXPERTS Many specialists have lent their expertise to Northern Gateway, including Ray Doering who has over 25 years of experience and an extensive knowledge of engineering solutions in challenging environments. “The Northern Gateway pipeline traverses a wide variety of environments between Alberta and the coast of British Columbia. This terrain includes many river crossings which have high values in terms of fish habitats and ecosystems.” Northern Gateway’s crossings will be designed and built to the best standards in the world today.

and construction of Northern Gateway, our team has and will continue to work closely with regulatory agencies, First Nations, environmental specialists, and local residents with expert knowledge of the areas. INDIVIDUAL PLANS FOR EACH CROSSING After careful study of each river and stream on the Project’s route, Northern Gateway has developed individual plans for each crossing. “The type and design basis for the river crossings incorporate the latest technology and methodology available anywhere and are selected based on habitat, geology and other environmental considerations. These include horizontal directional drilling, direct pipe bores, open cut and micro tunneling in addition to isolated and other trenched crossing methods. Burial depth and pipe thickness will be engineered to ensure that the pipeline will withstand the most severe geologic and hydrologic events that might occur.” Northern Gateway is committed to doing everything possible in order to build a safer, better project.

Volunteers take pride in helping others IT’S VOLUNTEER week and for those with some time to spare who are looking to help out, the Mills Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, is a friendly place to have fun and meet new people while helping others. The ladies who volunteer with the auxiliary operate the thrift shop on Lazelle Ave. and the gift shop at the hospital just inside the entrance. There’s a variety of reasons for why they volunteer. From having a heart attack and being alive because of the equipment at the hospital that the auxiliary helps to buy, to coming in for a visit and being asked to volunteer, to the enjoyment of it and having a day out to meet others their own age or even because “we seniors got nothing else to do,” they’re all glad to be there. A couple of the ladies said from working in retail, they became accustomed to being with people and enjoy it. And you get to know everyone too. They work the cash register, fold and organize the clothes and other donations and raise money to help buy equipment needed at the hospital, Terraceview Lodge and McConnell Place. Without all the donations and community help, the auxiliary wouldn’t be able to do all that, the ladies say. Garage sales are a

big provider of their items as they often get the “leftovers” and are glad for them. Items that they can’t use, such as things that are dirty or stuff they don’t have room for, is picked up by Bandstra for free and delivered to Prince George to be recycled. Nothing goes to the dump. Kitchen items are welcome, knick knacks and clothes and others but large items are often too big. Televisions or other electronics aren’t accepted and neither is furniture as there’s no space to store it. Any metal they receive goes to the Bold Salvage yard. The annual craft and bake sale around Christmas is a big fundraiser and on Saturday Nov. 23 last year, the ladies saw their most profitable day ever with $1,033.70 coming in, the first time they’ve made more than $1,000. The craft sale averages about $3,000. The stores can take in an average of about $400 a day but it ranges from $200 to $800. Overall last year, they raised an amazing $106,306 that went to hospital equipment and bursaries. This year, they’ve committed to raising $80,000 and some of that will be in the form of eight bursaries for $1,000 each for students born and raised here and pursuing a health care field in post-

Here are some of them: thrift store coordinator Bonnie Lefebvre, Erna M., Lorna Sperman, Sharon Mutschke, Denise Desjardins, Vivian Cameron and president Marg Petrick. secondary education. At present, there’s 55 volunteers and more are needed. And they’re looking for younger people, who can volunteer even for just an hour or two a day. Come and see what volunteers do and how you like it, they say, and if you like it, it’s only $7 a year, which goes to the upkeep of the thrift

store. And you’ll be joining a long line of volunteers as the auxiliary has been around since 1948. The store has been referred to as “the Terrace Boutique” or as one lady put it, her granddaughter calls it “grandma’s store.” Anyone interested in volunteering can come into the gift store or

thrift store and pick up an application form. The hospital and other facilities appreciate the auxiliary and all its efforts. “Mills Memorial Hospital and Terraceview Lodge feel fortunate to have a very good relationship with the Hospital Auxiliary,” says Chris Simms, health services administrator Terrace, Stewart,

Atlin. “The Hospital Auxiliary works tirelessly in the community (ie, the Thrift Store) and within Mills Memorial Hospital (ie, the Hospital Gift Shop) and the efforts of their work result in very generous gifts back to the Hospital and Terraceview Lodge in the form of, for example, equipment used in patient care.

“Last year alone, Mills Memorial and Terraceview received close to $100,000 in equipment purchases. “On behalf of Northern Health staff, I would like to thank the Hospital Auxiliary for their countless volunteer hours that indirectly support patient care. They are a tremendous asset to our community.”

Music fest scholarship decisions challenging AS THE Pacific Northwest Music Festival begins to wind down, its two final nights: Scholarship Night and Gala Night cap it off with awards for the top performers. And it’s a big effort to decide who will be named the Most Outstanding Junior, Intermediate and Senior Performers The junior award goes to ages 12 and under, intermediate to ages 13 to 15 and senior to ages 16 and older. Scholarship competition coordinator Eleanor Bond, who’s also on the music festival committee, meets with adjudicators as their disciplines end.

The festival committee puts together a list of participants with the highest marks. The list is cross referenced with the number of classes participants entered and the adjudicator makes her/his recommendations for junior, intermediate and senior categories, explains Bond, who has been scholarship competition coordinator for two years now, having taken over for Jessica Peters. “It’s going pretty well,” says Bond. “The biggest thing is keeping track of my own students and things I’ve got to get done. “It’s quite different,” she says about the scholarship night.

“They’re not competing against other, they’re competing against other winners so it’s quite a challenge too for the judges to decide.” When the individual marks, number of classes and adjudicator’s choice are put together, a top student is chosen for each award. If it’s a tie, and students also receive points, the adjudicators’ discretion comes in and they might say that even though students have the same mark, one might be a better choice for most outstanding, said Bond. Scholarship money is expected to go to-

ward the student’s music education. Bond doesn’t remember a student winning junior, intermediate and senior awards in subsequent years but a few students have won the same award more than once. In the last five years, Sandra Yoo won the junior and then intermediate awards in 2009 and 2010, respectively. And Andrea Pedro has won the senior awards in 2009, 2011 and 2013. Scholarship night is April 11 at the REM Lee Theatre. For more details, see City Scene on page B3.

SERAFINA BUDZYK gets some help from principal Maxine Champion to start teacher Eric Gearey’s head shaving April 4.

Head shave for Hailey ECOLE MOUNTAINVIEW students took a shaver to teacher Eric Gearey’s curly hair to mark the end of a fundraiser for Hailey Pettit, 6, who’s battling leukemia at BC Children’s Hospital. Students held a dance before spring break and then got pledges to see who could raise the most money by April 3, and the student who raised the most got the honour of shaving Gearey’s hair. The total amount the school raised was $6,626.52 and Grade 1 student Serafina Budzyk raised $1,066, the most of any student. When Budzyk and a few other students were

done, Gearey had several shaved trails on his head and some hair remaining on top. He said he was going to shave it all off. Before the shaving began, Hailey’s dad Ted Pettit spoke with the girls who organized the event, Hannah Francoeur, Emma Keswick and Hannah Link, ask-

ing why they decided to help his daughter, who they didn’t even know. They said they heard about Hailey and thought it was sad she was sick and wanted to help. “You know how important this is?” he asked. “This is something that will help shape the people you’re going to become.” Photographers name: None Usage info: None

I

invented the Catting Rod. Instead of trying to catch fish, like a fishing rod, you try to catch cats. You can pay big dollars in Big Dollar stores, or unload your cash at unique boutiques, Maker shows, and Ebay Etsy sites, or you can handcraft it yourself, and I will give you the secret recipe now. You take a wire coat hanger you really hate for tangling itself up one too many times. Bend it till you feel avenged, then tie a ribbon and some feathers and a tinkling bell to the end opposite the hanger hook. Sit on the couch and watch cable TV (with the New Yorker for the commercials) and swing it back and forth. Bonk your cat(s) on the nose with it. Swing it high like a delicious birdie-num-num or scuttle it along the floor like a sneaky snacky rodent. Whoever invented the cool side of the pillow is a genius. That was me! You’re welcome. How it works is, if your head is feeling all hot and itchy, you simply flip the pillow over and voila – cool comfort. Now you can sleep. But, you say, now this side of the pillow is getting too warm and making me all restless and bothered: I say, just flip it again! There is a catch: you must wait for the other side to cool. How long? I’m sorry, that is proprietary patent pending information. Another wonderful invention of mine is Terrace Buy and Sell on facebook. I created in it homage to the Bulkley Browser where there is stuff for sale, but also messages and pictures of found dogs and heartfelt thanks. Here’s one: “THANK YOU to the young couple that stopped and helped

W H AT ?

CHARLYNN TOEWS

My inventions me 1/2 hour from Terrace coming from Prince Rupert as my wiper broke off and helped me put my tiny wiper in the driver side.” For sale are tutus and tires and even cars, but I especially like exercise equipment “like new” – that means “hardly ever used,” I guess. There’s a boat – “want it gone,” I get that. There’s an oak crib – “no teeth marks,” I wouldn’t have thought to ask, but good to know. There’s also “professional grade cast iron dumbbell, nearly 1,200 lbs of weights, bars and bench. Will not deliver.” Well, I guess not, that stuff is way too heavy to lift! You may also like an invention I call “Way-early Weiner-roast,” which happens just this time of year. It requires a sweet-spot combination of local weath-

er and personal temperament. Let’s say it’s early spring, sun shining warmly at midday, and you have last fall’s fruittree prunings to get rid of. The smallest twigs and sticks are “seasoned wood,” for sure! Grab those wieners and you now have a cooking fire! In city limits! Unlike good old charcoal, which will provide you and your lunch-time friends with perfect juicy al dente hot dog fixins, the resulting product will be burnt black on the outside and cold and raw on the inside. This is why I invented ketchup, people. Here’s a few bad inventions of mine, and I apologize. “Will I ask myself a question which I will then answer immediately using the word ‘absolutely’? Absolutely.” Unfortunately for all of us, soon after I invented this phrase, it spread far and wide. Here’s a coach from Alabama: “Do we have to play better against LSU? Absolutely.’’ Here’s an Australian musician: “Is it relevant lyrically to what’s happening in my life right now? Absolutely.” Here’s a motivational speaker talking about overcoming obstacles: “Did he lament the loss of his dream? Absolutely.” I am so sorry. I invented “the safest way to transport oil.” Not the actual method, mind you, just the phrase, in quotation marks, that you can search on Google. It went viral, as you can see, if you want to create an e-mail news alert with it. Your in-box will be flooded with a deluge of news bits spouting this wisdom. Funny thing is, people who use this phrase do not feel the need to provide proof, they just proclaim it to be so. Oh, and “expected to create 100,000 jobs by 2030,” I invented that, too.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN AMENDMENT

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ZONING BYLAW AMENDMENT

TAKE NOTICE THAT application has been made to amend Schedule “A” Part C: Community Goals, Objectives and Policies, Part D: Land Use Designations and Part E: Development Permit Areas of the City of Terrace Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 1983-2011.

TAKE NOTICE THAT application has been made to amend Definitions and by amending Permitted Uses and Special Regulations in the M2 – Industrial Zone of Zoning Bylaw No. 1431-1995.

THE SUBJECT LAND: The application affects the land, within the City of Terrace, shown hatched on the accompanying map and described as: Lot 1, Block F, District Lot 1725, Range 5, Coast District, Plan EPP19161 [3755 Industrial Way] THE INTENT: 1.0 To amend Schedule “A” of the Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 1983-2011 part C: Community Goals, Objectives and Policies by replacing, under the section entitled “Goal: Diversified and Coordinated Economy”, subsection “Objective #10 Airport Lands”, the fourth bullet point under “Supporting Policy”, with the following: Direct and encourage suitable large scale development, appropriate commercial and industrial uses, and temporary industrial work camp accommodations, to the Airport Lands. 2.0 To amend Schedule “A” of the Official Community Plan bylaw No. 1983-2011 Part D: Land Use Designations by replacing the paragraph under the section entitled “Industrial” with the following: The industrial designation identified lands suitable for a variety of light manufacturing and commercial warehouse uses as well as intensive large scale industrial processing or manufacturing activity. The existing lands along the Highway 16 and CN Rail corridor through the City will accommodate most light to medium industrial activities such as industrial supply and contractor or transportation related uses. Some of these lands are located in proximity to commercial and residential land uses and are intended to transition from historical resource based heavy industrial uses. Heavy industrial activities related to forestry, mining and value - added manufacturing, along with other industrial development and temporary worker accommodation requiring large land parcels will be encouraged to access the Skeena Industrial Development Park lands at the airport. These industrial lands offer large land parcels and access to multi-modal transportation facilities and offer a unique opportunity to promote a range of heavy manufacturing uses and support burgeoning green industry such as biomass energy production. The lands at the Skeena Industrial Development Park are identified as an appropriate location for temporary worker accommodation (up to 25 years), established particularly during anticipated periods of high numbers of temporary workers as a result of regional resource based and major industrial development. 3.0 Amend Schedule A of the Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 1983-2011 Part E: Development Permit Areas by replacing the first paragraph under the section entitled “Development Permit Area No.6 - Industrial” with the following: Development Permit Area No. 6 is designated under Section 919.1 (1)(f) of the Local Government Act for the establishment of objectives for the form and character of industrial and multi-family residential development including temporary worker accommodation.

The cost of an average rental unit or the value of an average resale residential property should consume no more than 30% of the annual household gross, pre-tax income. INDUSTRIAL WORK CAMP ACCOMMODATION means one or more modular buildings or structures established for the purpose of providing residential accommodations and supports to workers whose employment is temporary in nature, arranged to provide individual sleeping units (1 person per unit) with or without individual bathrooms, meals in communal dining areas, and communal areas for recreation, laundry and other basic living essentials. 2.0 To amend Section 2.0 Definitions by including the underlined portion, and deleting the striked-out portions, in the following definitions: DENSITY means, for commercial uses, the floor area ratio; and for residential uses, the number of dwelling units per hectare; and for industrial work camp accommodation, the number of sleeping units per zoned parent parcel. SLEEPING UNIT means a set of one or more habitable rooms used or intended to be used for sleeping and living purposes, but not including a sink or cooking facilities. A bathroom containing a water closet, wash basin and a bath or shower may be shared. 3.0 Amend Section 8.2.2 Permitted Uses of the M2 – Heavy Industrial Zone as follows: .2 Despite the provisions of this Part, the following provisions shall apply to: .1 On Lot 1, Block F, District Lot 1725, Range 5, Coast District, Plan EPP1916, in addition to the uses described in 8.2.2 the following uses shall be permitted until May 1st, 2034: .1 Industrial Work Camp Accommodation; .2 Accessory uses including; • Dining Lounge; • Recreational Facility, Indoor and Outdoor; • Laundry facilities; • Parking, transportation services and associated supports. 4.0 Amend Section 8.2.3 Regulations of the M2 – Heavy Industrial Zone to include as follows: .4 Special Regulations – Density for Industrial Work Camp Accommodation .1 Maximum base density of 500 sleeping units (1 person/unit) may be increased to a density of 3000 sleeping units (1 person/unit), by provision of amenity contributions in accordance with the table below.
