Black returns on refinery mission Cameron Orr Oil refinery proponent David Black returned to Kitimat to speak publicly on his proposal, both to Kitimat Council and later to the public at large at the Riverlodge. His message was largely the same as in previous talks, playing up that the Kitimat Clean refinery proposal would be the cleanest refinery in the world and would solve many of the problems associated with raw bitumen export, such as proposed with Enbridge’s Northern Gateway project. Perhaps most notable from his visit however was the response from Kitimat Council, which voted to formally endorse his refinery by writing to Premier Christy Clark and Prime Minister Stephen Harper urging them to support the proposal. Mario Feldhoff put forward that motion but did receive resistance from Rob Goffinet, who would rather have opted to more general wording that didn’t specifically back Black’s proposal. “Why would we make a locked-in decision that we think that we are going for this project?” he asked, saying that as a political body they may in the future have to make judgements on that very project. Goffinet is in support of Kitimat Clean but not in endorsing it as a council. He attempted to create an amendment to the motion to generalize it away from Kitimat Clean but to a vote he was not successful in having it pass. Phil Germuth said refining product in Canada is in the country’s best interest and was comfortable with the motion as is. “Overall, on the concept of endorsing the government look at the proposal of a refinery, I would support it on that,” he said. Corinne Scott also spoke in favour of the original motion. “I hope the federal government will take the message by us writing to the Prime Minister, that we’re saying we’re against the Northern Gateway project. So I’m speaking in favour of the project.” Continued on page 2

Council says no to ‘no-camping’ signs Cameron Orr Kitimat Council won’t yet take any action regarding riverbank camping after a motion by Mary Murphy failed on May 5. Murphy had moved for the District of Kitimat to identify areas of riverbank camping and to erect “no camping” signs, which would direct people to legitimate camping sites within the town. “It started early this year and I’ve been down to that area and it’s mostly people who are working in town and I think it’s going to be a huge problem this year,” said Murphy. While action on riverbank camping is something councillors seemed to agree on, there was no consensus that this was the plan to

solve any problems. When it came to “putting the lid” on riverbank camping, Mario Feldhoff said “I don’t think [this] addresses the problem at all, it creates new problems.” Edwin Empinado also had concerns regarding the legalities of putting up signs, noting that there are places of riverbank camping where property lines abut municipal and private lands. Director of Leisure Services Martin Gould said they can put signs up wherever they like on municipal land, but indicated that enforcement would be the one area of concern for staff on such a plan. “The issue of the no-camping signs is enforcement. How do you enforce it?”

Councillor Mary Murphy believes riverbank camping is a big problem. Enforcement was a sticking point for Phil Germuth as well, who agreed without a way to enforce it, it would not be much benefit. He said the town does need more camping sites. Murphy main-

tained support for her motion in her closing remarks. “We have put in to place, at our cost, monitoring of the river, and it’s going to be an issue, it’s already starting to be an issue, and I know we have to do

something about it. And right now what we’re doing is nothing,” she said. She said no other town allows people to camp for free within town boundaries and be allowed to remain for months.

New toilet heading to river

Traffic and false alarms Cameron Orr Traffic-related files as well as “unspecified assistance” provided the bulk of RCMP calls between April 28 and May 4. In that period RCMP say they were called for service 96 times. Each of those two categories had 20 files opened each. False alarms continue their dominance as well, with 11 in that week period.

It was a royal flush as Mary Murphy was successful in getting her colleagues behind installing an additional toilet along the river. She moved for staff to identify areas in the community under-served by portable lavatories, notably the Kitimat River

There were six common assaults, four thefts, three calls of mischief, and one shoplifting, among other files. There were two cases of possession of marijuna, but no trafficking files. Among the files, RCMP are investigating a vehicle being keyed on April 30. They’re also looking into an alleged theft of liquor where someone took 1.14 litres of vodka from a store.

Pump House. Lavatories already exist in other areas, such as near the Giant Spruce fishing area. Installing the facility at the pumphouse would serve people using the river on the

Refinery Continued from page 1 Scott also noted that this motion won’t preclude Kitimat Clean from going through all the required studies and assessments. “If it all turns out that he can’t do [it] or whatever, that doesn’t stop us from saying ‘no, it’s become too dangerous.’ His proposal I can endorse quite easily.” Mario Feldhoff also added that endorsing the project through this motion doesn’t forbid future endorsement of

other worthwhile projects. “If others come forward with equally good projects I’d be happy to endorse that as well.” He also said during the debate, “Given what we know I believe it is our responsibility to advocate for this at this time.” Goffinet was ultimately outnumbered 6-1 when it came to the vote. The full motion as written is “That the District of Kitimat write a letter to the Prime

Minister, copying the Premier of B.C., endorsing Mr. Black’s Kitimat Clean refinery proposal and asking that it be supported and promoted by senior levels of government, thereby reducing environmental impacts and risks associated with the Northern Gateway, while significantly increasing economic value-added and associated taxation benefits to the Pacific Northwest, B.C. and Canada.” Black is also the chairman of Black Press, which owns this newspaper.

Northern Kitimat’s #1 News Source


RCMP officers are still looking into reasons why Rook, the region’s RCMP police service dog, passed away last week. The nine-yearold German shepherd was with handler Corporal Jarrod Trickett north of Terrace when he went into distress after coming out from a body of water. “It is with a heavy heart that I advise Police Dog Rook passed away yesterday of natural causes during a training exercise. He was nine-years-old,” said Terrace RCMP media relations community policing officer Const. Angela Rabut on May 7. “PDS Rook was a hardworking, dedicated, member of the RCMP, serving the people of British Columbia well. “The Terrace RCMP have begun the process of acquiring another Police Dog. In the interim, our area is being covered by the Prince George Police Dog.” The dog was rushed to a local vet, Dr. David Farkvam. As the region’s only RCMP police service dog, Rook, along with Trickett, covered the northwest from the Yukon border and Atlin down to Bella Bella and Bella Coola, out to just west of Burns Lake and east to Haida Gwaii. Rook’s job was to go out with Trickett to look for fleeing suspects, missing people, evidence or to a recent crime with tracks left behind. Lately, Rook had been helping train Eddie, a 14-month-old pup, with her handler Const. Trevor Mack. Trickett had planned to retire Rook when his service days ended and to then keep him as a pet.

Bish Forestry Service Road (FSR) Chevron is continuing upgrading work on the Bish Forestry Service (FSR) that requires public access to the area be restricted in order to ensure public safety. This work is to flatten, straighten and widen the existing FSR to accommodate future traffic demands as the proposed Kitimat LNG project moves forward. • A 24-hour public safety and security checkpoint has been set up along the FSR to inform the public about access restrictions. • Access restrictions are in place during construction activity such as blasting as well as work on narrow sections of the road in order to ensure the safety of the public. Chevron places the highest priority on the safety of the public and our workforce. Temporarily restricting public access to the Bish FSR while construction is underway will help us achieve our goal of an incident and injuryfree workplace. When construction activity is complete, the Bish Forestry Service Road will re-open to the public. For more information: Toll free: 1.844.800.0900

Picking and choosing As a thought exercise I occasionally ponder the roles of the town council, not in what it is they do but what their role is or should be in terms of actual development. There is a role, definitely. Planning, bylaws, zoning, all important steps to clear the path towards whatever construction may be wanted. Then I consider the moral role of a council. With the recent plebiscite in particular in mind, should a council ever formally oppose or support a project? Clearly many think yes. The Northern Gateway project has been fraught controversy and the town voted essentially to oppose the project. But at a local level are there implications for such positions? If a council ever says no to a project, does that impact the confidence that others, perhaps in different fields, think about doing business in such a town? This line of thought brings us to last week’s council meeting where our town formally endorsed David Black’s refinery proposal. Certainly there are positives in that proposal that don’t exist with pure export pipeline projects. But consider this also: Northern Gateway has gone through a formal review process with a government body. Black’s refinery has not made it that far. Cutting it down to the core, he has preliminary engineering and a business plan, but nothing in terms of conditions or technical details have been disclosed because the project has not gone that far in the process. So we have a situation where the town has said — and rightly, given the majority of the voting public — that they do not support the Northern Gateway. Yet there’s a refinery proposal that is no where near to the stage Enbridge has gotten to, and the town has formally backed it. Given those two aspects, it comes across that the District of Kitimat essentially picks and chooses which projects they want and which they don’t. The alternate, which I think is generally a better way, is to simply understand the values of the community (should I mention I still believe the Official Community Plan needs a good update?) and set policies around that. In my ideal world the town should never have needed to oppose Enbridge’s plan, but could still have set an official policy statement that outlines all the guarantees the town requires to protect its interests. (And whether or not the company could live up to those, well that’s up to them.) For a refinery, well, it’s absolutely fine to commit to working with proponents of major industry to add value to the community and region. I just wonder if there’s a message that’s being sent from Kitimat that our doors are open to business, but it’s VIPs only. Cameron Orr

Dealing with Lower Mainland mania Just got back from a flying trip to Vancouver, my first I think in four or five years. My wife and I have always been prone to enjoying a walk-about in the downtown shopping areas, usually highlighted by an outing and a meal or two on ebullient Robson Street. But somehow it just wasn’t the same, and what we saw, I think, reflected a lot of what we have been reading and listening to on TV, about the impacts of the so-called widening “income gap” in Canada. I could certainly be wrong and it’s a self-generated thought that Robson Street mirrors “the news.” One thing I noticed is that food service, which used to be one of the principal businesses on Robson Street, has been “edged out” by expensive “high-end” fashion, jewelry and shoe retailers. And, as has always been the case, much of the street is undergoing further change as businesses come and go, with differing levels of success. As always, there’s plenty of construction – it’s quite a long view through safety wire and construction scaffolding – into the immense but totally bare and empty first floor of what used to be Sears’ principle Vancouver location, at Robson-Granville, now taken over and being renovated by

American retailer Nordstrom and offices which will move in on top. Chapters, another annual stop, was gone. So were at least a couple of the seemingly one-per-corner Starbucks coffee outlets. The little corner bake shop where we used to enjoy a scone and a coffee disappeared. Many of the crowded little B.C. gift, postcards, souvenirs and jade shops were also gone. Further down we were surprised to see a rather classy-looking new art museum taking up much of the east-end space that had been the ground floor restaurant and bar of our favourite Vancouver hotel, the Listel (O’Doul’s) Hotel on Robson. Now it’s just the Listel Hotel. Changes are taking place at the hotel too – I was intrigued by its advertised announcement that “we are extremely chuffed to announce that our entire organization has embarked on a ‘zero-waste’ policy throughout our operation as part of Environment Mat-

ters, our industry-leading co-initiative ...” which I think I found out means the hotel will turn all of its waste into compost, re-use all recycables and convert all of its non-recyclables into electricity, among other good environmental efforts. I enjoy seeing a hotel stating it’s “chuffed” about anything, except perhaps a good review or the bottom-line. We didn’t stay at O’Doul’s this trip – part of my own retiree-status “widening income gap” effect, but I enjoyed seeing the changes. Across the street, the famous spotted cow that used to be the “beacon” for one of our favourite pub-eateries, was gone. A different restaurant-patio was in its place. But I still remember the “bash” there with the Alcan Ice Dogs hockey team, the evening after we played on GM Place ice against its rink-rat and staff team. Of course GM Place is now Rogers Arena, and has been for some time. Good memories all the same. I had a few “bad memory” issues with Vancouver traffic flow that I wished I’d remembered earlier. So I used the bus to travel from my digs to downtown. There’s no kidding when they say Vancouver traffic is a nightmare. Continued on page 5

Whales not expendable Dear Sir, When commercial whaling was finally banned in the 1960s, there were about 1,500 humpback whales on B.C.’s coast. Humpbacks were placed on the Endangered Species List and over the past 40 years, their numbers have increased by about 50 per cent. Hey that’s great! They’re not endangered anymore. Pop! They’re down listed. Now they’re just a Species of Concern. Except that only 50 per cent of the original humpback population has returned. Since when is half way there the end of the journey? Except that an endangered species habitat is totally protected and a Species of Concern’s habitat is not. Except that the humpbacks in the Douglas Channel are about to experience an increase in shipping through their habitat from about 20 per month to about 100 per month and one of the greatest risks to these animals is ship strikes. For whatever reason, whales have not learned to avoid ships and they get hit on a regular basis. Propel-

ReadeR’s WRite ler slashes are ugly. Ships also make a lot of noise and whales are extremely sound sensitive. They communicate (sing) over miles under the water and shipping disrupts that. If females can’t find their calves, or individuals in their pods, they will not thrive. They may not even survive. Except that Humpbacks share their habitat with Fin Whales, Grey Whales and now, for the first time in 60 years, a Right Whale has been spotted on the north coast. And they are endangered and their habitat must be protected. The ships that will be in the Douglas Channel are four times the size of normal tankers. They cannot slow or they will lose steerage, so they will kill whales. It is not a coincidence that taking humpbacks off the endangered list makes life simpler for shippers of oil and gas. The richest feeding grounds are along the shortest tanker route. But fail-


Continued from page 4 Add the myriad of bike and HOV lanes, as well as the Port Mann toll-bridge, which has no toll booths, but plenty of totally confusing signage – so I expect I’ll find that bill in my mail soon. Still, it was entertaining (in a way) as well as depressing to re-visit fast-growing Vancouver and recognize that it’s become beyond my base capabilities to get around. Try and find a phone book, if you don’t believe me. Great for smart phones, sadly, I’m behind the times in that area too. I have one, but it’s ageing me with its complexity and its oodles of apps I don’t use or want, but with understanding might have made this trip a little easier. Anyway, we drove the 3,000 clicks, hoteled, parked, ate, U-turned, thanked my lucky stars for the block system and had a grand old time trying to be the only one in B.C. making any effort to match the speed limits. Next time, I guess I’ll go airport to airport.

“I look at Northern Gateway and see a project that will build families and communities for generations. That’s what I’m most proud of.” - Catherine Pennington, Senior Manager, Community Benefits & Sustainability

Meet the expert:

We at Northern Gateway are committed to ensuring that jobs and business opportunities will be available to people living near the Project’s right-of-way.

IT ALL ADDS UP TO COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT In Catherine’s experience, removing barriers to employment has a huge impact – not just on individual job seekers, but on their communities as well. When you connect someone to a job, you also build individual and social pride, enhanced connections, dignity and ultimately, stronger sustainable communities. “As a trained social worker with experience in community development, I have found it very rewarding to work in Industry. You have the opportunity to create really meaningful outcomes that are mutually beneficial. Our model of shared responsibility for working with communities is unique and is being emulated by other companies.”

DEDICATED TO MEANINGFUL ABORIGINAL INCLUSION Catherine connects willing job seekers with existing and emerging opportunities. She is focused on helping the Project meet its goal of having Aboriginal people comprise 15 per cent of the construction workforce. “Many Northern communities are experiencing or have experienced desperate cycles of poverty, in part due to a lack of the necessary skills for the existing employment opportunities. I believe people in Northern and North Western B.C. have yet to fully realize their enormous potential. By actively investing in better education and skills training, opportunities for advancement and connections to good, steady jobs, we know we can make a real difference.”

SUCCESS ACROSS THE NORTH We have held discussions with numerous training providers, colleges, universities and employment service providers in Northern B.C. to identify programming needs to help Aboriginal and local people take advantage of the surge in energy projects in the region. We have also worked to tailor programming to the needs of individual communities. “Fundamentally, there’s nothing more powerful than helping someone make that connection to employment, because it leads to a larger, more positive and healthier social outcome.” As a company and a neighbour, we want to see Northern residents get the best opportunities because that benefits us all. It’s how we will build more than a safer, better pipeline, we will help build a better B.C.

Third reading was up for debate, but councillors on May 5 weren’t entirely convinced on some of the finer details. Notably the density bonuses for the project which would feed money to the municipality are thought to be too low. Its proposed for this development that a $5,000 per unit cost be paid to the District for affordable housing programs. That’s for units above an initial 40. Such a cost would contribute $70,000 to the District. Phil Germuth felt that $70,000 was not enough of a contribution. He said based on studies showing a onebedroom affordable housing unit costs approximately $100,000, $70,000 from a 54 unit townhouse complex doesn’t even cover the cost of one affordable housing apartment. Mario Feldhoff shared the same thoughts of the Kitimat Housing Committee which had indicated they would prefer to see a contribution of physical units of affordable housing. The committee had admitted that might be challenging for this particular development and did support the $5,000 per unit density bonus. Privacy has been a big sticking point for residents on Margetts Street. Some have written to the District for

the public comment on this proposal, and the comments have included a number of privacy concerns of a three-storey unit located behind their homes, which has

historically just been forest. One of the Margetts residents went into great detail to argue that the permanent workforce to remain

after construction projects conclude in Kitimat won’t be enough to fill an expanded housing stock, if projects like the Kingfisher townhomes are built.

District staff comment to council has been supportive of the project, noting that the required property setbacks are not altered for the project, saying

the development will be no closer than 13 metres from existing houses. A restrictive covenant was being proposed to allow the de-

velopment as only 25 units are proven to be serviced on the lot, and the covenant would allow development ahead of servicing studies in the fall.

Together, we’ve built Canada. Together, we’ll build Gateway.


When working people benefit, Canada benefits. That’s why we support Northern Gateway. Canada’s trade unions have always fought to ensure working people and their families benefit from economic growth. That’s why the Pipe Line Contractors Association of Canada and four national unions—representing the most experienced construction workforce anywhere in the world—are proud to support the Northern Gateway Pipeline.

The Memorandum Of Understanding our unions signed with Northern Gateway ensures the project is built to the highest possible environmental and safety standards. It supports Northern Gateway’s commitment to jobs and lasting social benefits for Aboriginal communities. And it helps ensure new training opportunities for young people— opportunities that will last them a lifetime.

Northern Gateway is a nation-building project that has the potential to secure long-term energy and economic security for the next 100 years. But only—and this is critical—if it is built right and for the benefit of average families and the communities in which we live.

As trade union members, we place a high value on protecting our natural environment. We have been building pipelines for over 60 years and know what it takes to protect the environment we all value. The Joint Review Panel process was

Rob Kinsey United Association of Journeymen & Apprentices of the Plumbing & Pipefitting Industry of the United States and Canada

Lionel Railton International Union of Operating Engineers

Neil Lane Pipe Line Contractors Association of Canada

the most comprehensive environmental review for an oil pipeline Canada has ever seen, and its recommendation found that we can build Northern Gateway while still protecting our environment. For these reasons, our trade unions— and the 300,000 Canadian working men and women we represent—believe Northern Gateway is the right choice for Canadian workers and their families. When working people and their communities benefit—as they do with Northern Gateway—then we all benefit with a stronger, fairer, and more prosperous country for every Canadian.

Sports & Leisure Al has some a’Spaining to do In 10 days Al Marleau will be taking to Pontevedra, Spain to compete in the 2014 ITU Duathlon World Championships. The event will push him to his limits in cycling and running, which calls for a fourloop 2.5 kilometre run, followed by a transition into a 20 kilometre bicycle route. Marleau said he had originally planned to pursue more triathlons but he hurt his shoulder making a swimming event too physically out of reach. But even so, a dual-event run and cycle

pushes the intensity. “I found the intensity is higher because I found my legs were a lot more tired because you don’t get that break,” he said. “With swimming you don’t have to kick too hard in a pool. They say most triathletes don’t kick a lot, they say they save their legs for the run and the bike.” Marleau keeps in constant contact with his coach, who actually lives in New Zealand and remotely provides training plans, and Marleau feeds back information such as heart rate and other details.

Marleau will get out to train about six days a week, and training days take up anywhere from one to three-and-a-half hours. “I feel pretty good,” he said, despite battling some minor injuries, but he battles the

“mental” game of overcoming doubt by relying on the support of his friends and family. “The family has always been super supportive. My wife thinks I’m nuts, as do most of my friends, but they’re very encouraging.”

Police tracking down Riverlodge vandals Cameron Orr The police are investigating property damage and mischief at the Riverlodge on May 7.

In all the damage is estimated at around $6,000. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact the Kitimat RCMP at 250-6327111, or call Crimestoppers to report anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
