KITIMAT - Douglas Channel Watch is hailing a victory after residents in Kitimat voted “No” in the community’s plebiscite which fulfills Kitimat Council’s promise to gauge community support for the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipelines project. Unofficial results show ‘Yes’ with 1,278 votes and ‘No’ with 1,793. The No vote wins with 58.4 per cent of ballots, Yes vote trails with 41.6 per cent. 3,071 votes were cast. Councillors had at an earlier time committed to gauging support on the project as soon as the Joint Review Panel concluded their process and issued their re-

port on the project. The Joint Review Panel subsequently concluded in favour of Northern Gateway’s construction in findings released late last year, save for 209 conditions that must be met. It has been a fierce fight for public opinion. Signs have sprung up on roadsides and people’s lawns, either encouraging people to vote “no to Enbridge” or “yes to Kitimat.” Both sides of the question launched websites, and began large advertising campaigns in local media. For Douglas Channel Watch, a win meant sending a message to the federal government that such a project is not welcome in the Northwest. For Enbridge, proving public

support would have been a coup as the company seeks the general public’s favour in constructing their diluted bitumen pipeline from Alberta. “As a long time-resident of northwestern B.C., I passionately believe that Northern Gateway is the right choice for Kitimat,” said Northern Gateway’s Manager of Coastal Aboriginal and Community Relations Donny van Dyk. “The plebiscite offered us an opportunity to share that vision with thousands of local residents; a vision for a safer, better pipeline that meets the needs of our community. And I want to offer my thanks to our local team and every resident who participated in this process.” A statement released from Douglas Channel Watch’s Mur-

ray Minchin after the results were released said the result “demonstrates that the citizens of British Columbia cannot be bought, that we will not trade the long term health of our salmon rivers or our pristine north coast for a handful of jobs.” In response to the result, Kitimat Council has directed that a letter be written to the federal government, and copied to the Premier’s office, that includes the results of the vote and an urging to not make a decision on the Northern Gateway project before considering the community’s response. Councillors at the next Kitimat council meeting will also debate officially opposing the Northern Gateway project based on the plebiscite outcome.

Autistic services probe needed, says Prince Rupert family By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - The family of the mother and son whose bodies were discovered at their home on Ebert Street on April 3 are calling into question services offered to autistic children and their families in Prince Rupert. The family of the two confirm that 40-year-old Angie Robinson and her 16-yearold son Robert were found in their home. Prince Rupert RCMP have confirmed it was a murder-suicide, with Angie taking the life of Robert before committing suicide. In a statement, the family of the mother and

son describes the relationship between Angie and Robert as being filled with the kind of love that typically exists between a mother and her son. “Angie was a single mother, very shy, loving, and kind-hearted,” the family said in a statement. “Her beautiful boy Robert was diagnosed with autism at a very early age,” explained the family. “Angie and Robert were always together, whether it was walking around Prince Rupert or on the Butze Rapids trail,” the statement from the family continued. Given the closeness of the two, the family said they are determined

to look further into the circumstances that led to the tragic events of April 3. “The services available for autistic children and families of autistic children are very limited in Prince Rupert,” wrote the family in the same that was released.

“A complete assessment of current services and services required are at the forefront of the family’s investigation -so that the hopelessness felt by a mother who wanted nothing but help with her son so that he could live with her forever will not be felt by

another family.” At this time, Const. Matt Ericson said the RCMP detachment in Prince Rupert will not be releasing any additional details regarding the circumstances surrounding the two deaths out of respect for the family.

The family, meanwhile, said it has appreciated the work done by RCMP officers on this case. “The family would like to thank the Prince Rupert RCMP and Coroners Service for the respectful, compassionate professionalism shown

to us in this very difficult time,” read the family’s statement. The family, in the statement,which acknowledged the Gitxaala band on the coast, the Prince Rupert School District and friends and family for their assistance.

Lack of remediation plan hurt Watson Island deal

Friday, April 18, 2014 The Northern Connector


PRINCE RUPERT - Grade 7 Prince Rupert Middle School student Hannah Stewart accepts a school water bottle from counsellor Pam Groves as a small token for winning a school wide poster with an anti-drug theme. The assignment was an counterad campaign where students were to make up a poster on not using drugs. All the posters will be used for a large display and Hanna’s will be framed. In addition to the water bottle Hannah won points for her school “House Challenge” team the Grey Lightning.

BCTF prepares for strike action VICTORIA – After rejecting an offer from the school district bargaining agency for a long-term contract, the B.C. Teachers’ Federation went to the Labour Relations Board this week to establish essential service levels for strike action. BCTF members voted 89 per cent in March to endorse a three-stage strike plan that can begin with 72 hours notice. Phase one includes restricting communication with school managers, arriving no more than an hour before and leaving an hour after school hours, and refusing supervision of students outside class time. It does not affect pre-arranged voluntary activities such as coaching, but the refusal of supervision requires essential service levels that compel some teachers to assure the safety of students while they are out of classes. Peter Cameron, chief negotiator for B.C.’s 60 school districts, said there are some rural schools with no management staff to supervise playgrounds. Typically it is the employers’ association that seeks an essential services order, but this time the BCTF applied. That’s unusual for a union that has a history of opposing essential service orders at the LRB and the International Labour Organization, Cameron said. It

is also a sign that the BCTF is preparing for strike action after the Easter break. Cameron said if stage one strike action begins, the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association will seek an order that the union pay for its extended benefits during any withdrawal of service. That would cost about $5 million a month for 41,000 public school teachers. “In order that there is in fact pressure on both sides, BCPSEA needs to respond to any phase one activities with measures that put corresponding pressure on the union,” Cameron wrote in a letter to BCTF president Jim Iker. Cameron’s initial offer is for a 10-year agreement with pay increases totalling 6.5% over the first six years and additional wage increases to be negotiated for the final four years. BCTF negotiators countered with a three-year proposal with three per cent plus a cost-of-living increase in each year. With compounding and current estimates of inflation, BCPSEA calculates that could amount to 13.5 per cent over three years. Phase two of the BCTF plan is rotating oneday walkouts in districts around the province. Phase three, a full-scale strike, would require a second vote by members to authorize.

Adding campsites in Kitimat By Cameron Orr THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

KITIMAT - Councillor Mario Feldhoff wants to see the town considering adding more camp sites to Hirsch Creek Park. Feldhoff put forward a motion for the town to investigate the potential for additional camp sites at Hirsch Creek, saying there’s a need for more sites in Kitimat to accommodate tourists. He notes such development would involve communicating with the Haisla and the province but thinks it’s an idea that should be seriously

considered. Hirsch Creek land is owned by the province and managed by the municipality. Feldhoff was backed up in a unanimous vote by councillors in attendance, with no additional comments provided by the others. Right now there are 42 sites at Radley Park, 21 electrified, and there are currently nine sites at Hirsch Creek. There is a long term plan to add eight more sites to Radley Park as well but that would come after some other major projects such as dealing with its septic system.

Northern biking boosted PRINCE GEORGE - The Western Canada Mountain Bike Tourism Association (MBTA) in partnership with Northern BC Tourism and Northern Development Initiative Trust is pleased to announce the commencement of work on a new strategy to increase mountain bike tourism to the British Columbia’s northern tourism region. Twelve communities and regional districts from across the Northern BC region will participate in the development of the strategic plan. The project team will engage local stakeholders as well as draw upon a growing body of research and best practices from within Canada and around the globe. “Mountain bike tourism is becom-

ing increasingly important to areas with natural beauty and an abundance of bike trails”, said Martin Littlejohn, executive director of the MBTA, “Over the past few years, communities in Northern BC have been investing in trails for local recreation. As the trail inventory has grown, so too has interest from visitors. Having a locally-driven strategy in place will help ensure collaboration among the communities and progress toward a more sustainable and viable mountain bike tourism economy for the region” The project will run from April through to October 2014. Money comes from the Omineca Beetle Action Coalition (OBAC), participating communities and regional districts.

Spring Tire Event! Come in to Terrace Canadian Tire and meet Tim Wiebe, our new Automotive Service Manager. MARTINA PERRY / THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

Dan Bubas of the Canada Border Service Agency outlines some of the steps the organization takes to ensure the security of containers entering Prince Rupert.

CBSA keeping Rupert’s port safe PRINCE RUPERT - The Canada Border Service Agency (CBSA) outlined the step they take to ensure the security of containers entering Prince Rupert during a Trade Talks event on Thursday. The many ways in which CBSA works within port operations was the topic of the event, the second hosted by the Prince Rupert Port Authority, and the focus was on protocols and methods the agency uses for container inspections. Dan Bubas, CBSA chief of operations for the West Coast and Yukon District, said the CBSA has three key strategies for managing the boarder. “We receive vast electronic information on what is coming to Canada. Before the goods have even left we’re getting information on what they are and where they’re coming from. With that information, we turn it into intelligence and use risk assessment systems,” he said. “Thirdly, we build programs to expedite low-risk training and facilitate business.” Bubas said the CBSA analyzes the risk assessment of 100 per cent of containers heading to Prince Rupert. “What we’re looking for in particular is anything that would be considered a danger to people. We’re looking for potential weapons of mass destruction, and acts of terrorism,” he said. “By and large, most freight is low risk.” When containers reach Fairview Terminal in Prince Rupert, radiation levels are tested.

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.

plained the process to those in attendance, overviewing the various methods CBSA officers use to ensure cargo is safe. If containers are still considered risky, CBSA must destuff containers at the container examination facility. Bubas said more than 2,000 full offload examinations took place last year, which doesn’t include other examinations on the dock. This is between one and two per cent of traffic. “In Prince Rupert by and large virtually all of the traffic is legitimate. We have a very high compliance rate. There’s a lot of significant importers who bring freight through here and we’ve never had a problem,” said Bubas. But not all cargo is clean. In September 2012, CBSA officers in Prince Rupert seized 14.5 tonnes of chemical precursors for GHB, or the date rape drug, and ecstasy, the largest interception in Canada. In Prince Rupert, CBSA officers have found invasive pest species, like the Asian Longhorn Beetle, in containers. “We have found live insects in containers, it’s not uncommon. The ones we’re most concerned about are the wood-boring ones that could affect our corps and tree,” Bubas said.

Re-riding a critical part of Northwest B.C.’s railway history from Toronto, ON to Prince Rupert and back. “I’m really doing this because of my father,” said Meijer. Richard Rinaldi was the Terrace foreman, and the last foreman at the Kwinitsa station. Before her dad’s passing in 2008, Meijer documented his 35 years of history as part of the “steel gangs”. Rinaldi worked nine months of the year from 1952 to 1987 in B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan, and he came from France to do it. It was hard work with long days and involved blasting rubble and laying new track for Canadian National Railways (CNR). “He told me that he worked 1416 hour days and they worked many weeks where they could get a few days off. A few days off meant driving to Terrace to be with the family and spending just a day or two [with us],” said Meijer. Rinaldi came to Kwinitsa from Paris, and his wife and three daughters followed. “It was quite a shock,” said Meijer, who still speaks with the hint of a French accent. “My dad started as a sectionman, but he progressed quite quickly to become program supervisor. He took a lot of pride in lay-


PRINCE RUPERT - Everyone has their own way of falling asleep. Whether it be warm milk, white noise, rainfall or music, people use different strategies to catch some Z’s. For Terrace’s Chantal Meijer, it’s the deafening roar of a locomotive. “We lived in those types of stations like the Kwinitsa Station when I was growing up,” explained Meijer outside the Museum of Northern British Columbia last week. “So I’m very familiar with trains rumbling by the station and rumbling me to sleep. We had such a unique way of life.” Meijer was in town with several other Terrace residents to be part of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway’s 100th anniversary tour of the last spike. The railway historian of the group, Meijer joined other Terrace celebration committee members, city councillors and area enthusiasts as they boarded the train with the anniversary’s special coaches last Monday night and arrived into Prince Rupert early Tuesday morning. It was all a part of Rail Travel Tours’ two-week train trip running

ing new steel and these gangs were very difficult to marshall. There was hundreds of men and heavy equipment and all the responsibility of the tracks. I have that part in me now that I’ve recorded his history.” Each year, Rinaldi would travel to Edmonton to do all the hiring and from there, CNR would issue his designation for the coming months. In the winter months, Rinaldi would be the foreman at Terrace. In 1975, Rinaldi was away from home and Meijer was about to get married. “He drove 22 hours from Red Deer, Alberta just to make it to the wedding and he only stopped once for half an hour so he wouldn’t fall asleep at the wheel,” said Meijer. “He just made it and then he had to turn around and drive another two hours back to the gang, but he was not going to miss his daughter’s wedding.” With the gangs, he was popular and he demanded the best. “My dad had a reputation of being a real tough railroader. A lot of them came back to work for him who had worked for him in previous years and a lot of them were university students. They liked the pay. They got paid extra for the long


Wearing outfits appropriate to the era, this group gathered in Prince Rupert last Tuesday night after revisiting historic points of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. hours and I think they also respected my dad,” said Meijer. “He was a soldier in the war and he ran the gangs with a sort of military precision. I think maybe his war experience in France helped him to marshall these gangs with a kind of iron fist.” Rinaldi had one top priority. “I knew he was driven by love

for family but he was also driven as a perfectionist to see that the trains did pass safely, and no man was injured year after year [on his watch],” said Meijer “I asked him why did you do it dad, why did you spend all those years working outside so hard, and he said, ‘I did it so the trains could pass safely’.”

Trap, neuter program funded By Martina Perry THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - After years of pushing for a trap, neuter and release program, the Prince Rupert SPCA recently received financial backing. “It’s extremely rewarding [to see the process start]. I’ve been working so hard and lobbying people for support; all the hard work has come to fruition,” said Prince Rupert SPCA branch manager Anna Terebka. Prince Rupert’s branch received $4,300 from the BCSPCA legacy

fund, with McLehenney Consulting contributing $500. The money will go to spaying and neutering a colony of feral and free-roaming cats, which Terebka says will “reduce the pain and suffering of unwanted litters”. All together, the $4,800 will spay or neuter about 30 cats. But that number could be affected by complications. “Even though it’s just a little step, at least it’s a step in the right direction,” said Terebka. “It’s just the beginning.” Terebka didn’t reveal the colony’s whereabouts.

Kitimat City High slated to relocate to MEMSS Accidental fall off Haisla Bridge school in the back of mind for a few years but the decision to actually move it is a new one. “We’ve had conversations as to what to do with Kitimat City High...and coming to grips with how best to serve the kids given our current and foreseeable enrolment and the availability of facilities and programs for kids... It’s not a new discussion but it’s a new decision,” he explained. The school in its new facility will still retain existing staff and counselling, he said, but did say that the new school wouldn’t need its

By Cameron Orr


KITIMAT - The Kitimat City High alternative education program, which currently runs out of the former Cormorant Elementary School building, will be moving to under the roof of the Mount Elizabeth Middle Secondary School. The change is expected to go into effect September 2014, at the beginning of the next school year. Coast Mountain School Board Chair Art Erasmus said that the school board has had the idea of moving the

own independent principal. In total the move will affect the 45 enrolled students at KCH. Erasmus said on most days only about 15 are in attendance. Their specific programs will be kept, he said. “A broader program will be available to them in addition to what we were able to offer them at the smaller building.” He said that’s because of the resources that will become available sharing a roof with MEMSS. “Because they’re going to be in the bigger

school they’ll have access to additional things they don’t have in their small school which includes counselling, which includes some shop courses...” said Erasmus. He said that MEMSS has a total capacity of 1,400 students and so the move makes sense to take advantage of the extra space. There are only about 550 students there now, he said. A letter from school district Superintendent Nancy Wells said the decision addresses a number of “barriers” to KCH students, including: lack of resources for chang-

ing school population, the need to provide programs for younger students, varied supports needed to meet complex student needs, and a facility that currently is not able to provide a “full range of programs”. Erasmus said there are no board motions relating to this move as it would not be needed because this change is effectively only moving school programs, not altering them. Kitimat City High originally started in 1974. The school moved into the ex-Cormorant Elementary in 2008.

A 23-year-old woman was transported to Kitimat General Hospital and then to Mills Memorial Hospital for non-life threatening injuries after falling off the Haisla Bridge in Kitimat on April 6 at 4:47 a.m. Police arrived to the bridge on a call that a woman had fallen off a bridge and they were quickly flagged down and directed to where the woman had landed on a log jam on the river. Police say that the investigation found that the woman and one of the males in her group appeared to have been intoxicated and began arguing while walking from a nearby bar. The woman, in the course of the argument, found herself on the roadway. She then leapt over the rail on the other side of the bridge while trying to dodge an oncoming vehicle. The woman’s cousin, who was also with the group, told police she likely didn’t realize there was no platform to stand on on that side of the bridge. Police say there is no indication of any foul play.

Sunken ship…


PRINCE RUPERT - This is all that was visible after a ship berthed at the Metlakatla Ferry Dock sank in the early morning hours of April 14. Containment booms were deployed as diesel fuel was leaking from the ship.

Deal is not an endorsement of LNG By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - Lax Kw’alaams Mayor Garry Reece says he wants to make one thing clear: The recent revenue sharing agreement between the Coast Tsimshian and the Province of British Columbia is not an endorsement of the LNG industry. “People are looking at it as though we have signed an agreement with LNG companies. We have not signed any agreement with any LNG projects being proposed. We have signed an agreement with the province, and the province is not going to be building an LNG terminal ... LNG companies have paid the province

to go to Grassy Point and see if it is feasible to build there. What we did is go after the government to get our share of that,” he said, noting there are still no projects that have been given the stamp of approval by the band. “I have made it clear that we have to look at the environment, our sea resources and the safety of our people. We have our own teams looking at that and making sure these projects will not harm those ... there is no money in the world that will get us to agree to a project that puts those at risk.” According to Reece, the government offered the Lax Kw’alaams and Metlakatla bands $15 million from the money paid

by Woodside LNG and Aurora LNG for exclusivity rights to the north and south ends of Grassy Point. In terms of sharing information with the people of Lax Kw’alaams, Reece said the agreement was also brought up during a meeting earlier this year. While not endorsing the industry or any of the projects, Reece acknowledged that the benefits would be significant if one or more projects could be built in such a way to meet the environmental and resource needs of the band. “The impact-benefits agreements we are discussing are huge and would make a big difference for Lax Kw’alaams,” he said.

Haisla Seniors take title /bc_north


End of ski season…

By Cameron Orr


KITIMAT - The Womens Division of the Kitamaat Open Cultural Warming Basketball Tournament went to the Haisla Seniors in a hard fought battle against the Prince Rupert Synergy. The Haisla topped the six-team division, which also saw the Prince Rupert Thunder in third place. The Haisla Braves came fourth in the Mens Division, leaving it up to the Vancouver Dusters to claim the number one spot, in an equally thrilling final against the Prince Rupert Lights Out. The Haisla 2 mens team placed seventh out of the eight teams, and in the Womens, the Haisla Pink Hearts placed fifth.


The Haisla Senior Women claimed the top prize in the Women’s Division at the Kitamaat Open, with 74-67 against Prince Rupert.

Rainmakers falter in season openers By Kevin Campbell THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - Down 1-0 in her second game in five hours and with her team struggling to find offence, Tanveen Randhawa found a through-ball midway through the first half of Charles Hays’ girls soccer match against Kitimat’s Mount Elizabeth Secondary. Randhawa made a move to split the surrounding defence, but was hauled down. The ref’s arm shot up. A penalty kick was awarded just outside the 18-yard box. Randhawa didn’t miss. The forward blasted a strike past a leaping Kitimat goalkeep and Charles Hays tied the affair at one. That’s how the first half would end, and for the home side, the closest they would come to winning their first match of the season. Mount Elizabeth pulled away in the second half, scoring twice to take the 3-1 victory over a Charles Hays squad who earlier fell to Terrace’s Caledonia Senior Secondary in their first match of the season. CHSS’s Henzle Masocol scored in that game and was a large threat in the first half of her second before Kitimat posted double coverage on Charles Hays’ most consistent lethal option. She’s not the tallest player, but she’s also not afraid to challenge for possession. “I went for the ball and they


TERRACE - Thayna and Zyah Healey – with their dummy Olaf and Sven – participated in the Dummy Downhill at Shames My Mountain Co-op on Saturday, April 5, just one of a few events marking the end of the ski season. The mountain now moves to takedown mode and athletes are ready to switch things up and race up the mountain road with the Race to Shames in June.

Masocol highlighted a solid effort from the group’s first weekend of competitive play. Coach Kyla Ragan was impressed after her first good look at this year’s squad. “I think they did really well,” said Ragan. “There’s a few things with positioning that we’ve got to sort out and then we haven’t touched on penalty kicks or anything, so we’re going to go over how not to get them.” The back-end played well and suffered only a few mental lapses when Kitimat was able to break

through their defences for the second half game-winning marker and their third insurance goal to seal the game away. The goal to start the second half was a shot that found the topleft corner of the mesh behind a busy second-half Charles Hays goalkeeper, who did a fine job stopping the majority of the shots sent her way. A scramble in the penalty area found a wide open Kitimat forward who slid one into an open net for the 3-1 lead. The team next plays after the Easter break. “I think we played good for our first games,” said Masocol.

Terrace teens take on B.C. at U16 tryouts By Anna Killen


TERRACE - Three second year members of the Terrace Bantam Rep team are in Salmon Arm this weekend, taking a shot at representing the province on Team BC’s U16 team. Nick Nordstrom, Austen McKean and Sam Reinbolt successfully made it through the 90-player north region camp in Vanderhoof to become three of only 20 players from the northern half of the province selected to advance to the next selection round April 17 – 20. This round sees 160 of the best young players in the province compete for a spot on Team BC which will be competing in the Canada Winter Games in Prince George in 2015. “For all of the different communities, three of the 20 coming from Ter-

race in the north half, that’s a good accomplishment for those boys and the whole team,” said the boys’ coach Rory Reinbolt, noting there were five bantams in total who competed, and the two who didn’t make the cut also gave strong performances. The Bantams had a strong run at provincials this year, taking bronze, and coach Reinbolt said the team handles pressure well, which will be helpful at U16 tryouts. The U16 tryouts are heavily watched by higher league scouts. Reinbolt said that usually the scouts know the players they are looking for but “the boys from the north, they get a chance to be seen by these guys too, and they say they’re always looking for the diamond in the rough so it’s a good opportunity for the boys.”

“Northern Gateway’s Habitat Restoration Plan will ensure that caribou ranges are left in better condition than they were found.” - Paul Anderson, President of RPS HMA and Northern Gateway’s Director of Environment

Meet the expert:

Northern Gateway understands and respects the important northern environments. The caribou ranges present a set of challenges that we will meet with world-class solutions and sensitivity. WE TURNED TO LEADING EXPERTS FOR ADVICE Northern Gateway consulted with experts like Paul Anderson to help us develop caribou habitat plans. Paul has more than 25 years of experience supporting major projects and has extensive knowledge of regulatory and stakeholder engagement practices in Canada. Over the past five years, Paul has been responsible for developing the environmental and socio-economic impact assessment for the Project. “There have been a multitude of industrial projects over the course of the last few decades that have put tremendous pressure on caribou habitat and populations.” Based on the experts’ recommendations, Northern Gateway has committed to detailed caribou habitat assessment and restoration

plans that go beyond requirements. One of our commitments in British Columbia is to build the pipeline on or adjacent to previously disturbed lands, where possible, in the ranges of the Narraway, Quintette, Hart and Telkwa caribou herds. Overall approximately 70 per cent of the proposed pipeline route utilizes previous disturbances. Furthermore, Northern Gateway has committed to reclaiming these areas of previously disturbed land by planting trees, creating berms and otherwise restricting access for predators and hunters along the right-of-way. Our goals for habitat renewal will be accomplished through close consultation and communications with federal and provincial regulatory agencies, local stakeholders and Aboriginal communities. CONDITIONS FOR THE BETTER Northern Gateway’s voluntary commitments to undertake specific mitigation for the protection of caribou and caribou habitat were endorsed by the Joint Review Panel. They are now reflected in 16 of the 209 conditions that we must meet for Project approval. Paul adds, “Northern Gateway’s Habitat Restoration Plan will ensure that caribou ranges are left in better condition than they were found.” This is another example of how Northern Gateway is doing everything possible in order to build a safer, better project.

Road clearing for potential work camp site is underway By Josh Massey THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

TERRACE - Clearing is underway on the site where a large work camp could one day be located in Thornhill just off of Hwy37 South and south of Churchill Drive. As part of the agreement to purchase the 93-acre wooded property, PTI Group, an Edmonton-based worker lodging company, had assigned logging rights to the previous owner of the land. Local developer Mike Scott, who sold the property, says his company, Rio Vista, says the work began with clearing an access road from Hwy37 South. Scott said he has until the end of the summer to finish the harvest

of what he foresees to be approximately 50 per cent of the trees considered suitable for other uses. “This is temporary access just so we can get the timber off the property,” said Scott last week. “There is probably half of it where the timber value is not sufficient to warrant logging it.” “There will be a buffer along the highway so people driving along probably won’t notice it and there will be a big buffer between where the logged area is and where the residents on Churchill Drive live,” he added. PTI official Sean Crockett said the worker lodging company is not part of the clearing operation and that the company isn’t yet proceeding with any development plans.

PTI, which is already in the advanced stages of worker lodging plans at Kitimat in anticipation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants, won’t be proceeding at the Thornhill location until more is known about LNG development requirements. According to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, PTI applied for the permit to put in a temporary access road to the logging site. “PTI Group has been issued a temporary resource access permit for logging purposes,” said a ministry official. Any further development at the location for accommodations would require rezoning approval from the Regional District of Kit-

imat-Stikine. Transportation ministry access approval would also be needed because of the proximity to Hwy37 South. Residents in the Churchill Drive subdivision spoke out in March about concerns related to a plan to put a work camp so close to residences. Crockett had responded that the lodging would be of a more lasting nature than the term “work camp” evokes and that housing units suitable for a upwards of a decade of use would be placed there. He did not comment on reports that an industrial laundry facility might also be part of any lodging development proposal. The PTI group is already very

active in the Kitimat area in anticipation of planned LNG proposals receiving construction approval by next year. As well, The Crossroads, a proposed hotel and camp development project, hasn’t progressed as quickly as the proponents may have had hoped, due to a number of logistical hurdles. The company behind the proposal, Bryton Group, wants a reduced density bonus which currently has them contributing $500 per bed to an affordable housing fund to be maintained by the District of Kitimat. This fee is similar to one in place for PTI. The Crossroads project also feels it should be exempt from the Pollution Control Centre charge of $300 per bed.
