CAMERON ORR / THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

Members of Unifor Local 2300 who would otherwise be working for the District of Kitimat instead, as of Feb. 28, found themselves on a picket line after an unsuccessful attempt to negotiate a contract.

Kitimat workers have erected picket lines By Cameron Orr THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

KTIMAT - Bargaining between the District of Kitimat and Unifor 2300 has seemingly broke down, with the District on one hand saying they’ve given a generous offer and the union on the other saying their issues aren’t being addressed. The District of Kitimat gave a final offer to settle to the union last Thursday, Mayor Phil Germuth said through an open letter, which he said keeps the union to among the best-compensated workers in the province. His letter also notes that while a brighter economy still lays on the horizon, the community simply cannot handle the burden of what they say would

be a 12 per cent property tax increase. “Many people, including seniors and others on fixed incomes, could be negatively affected,” he wrote. Due to the strike, the Riverlodge, the Tamitik Arena and the Kitimat Ice Rink, and the swimming pool are closed, while picketers are lined up outside the Public Works yard and at the entrances to City Centre Mall, where the District of Kitimat have their offices on the third floor. The landfill remains open but there is a union presence at its entrance as well. The District on February 28 released a document outlining their offer to the union, which sees 2.5 per cent wage increases every year up to 2017. They say they’ll also add

250-632-1326 cell

10 full time positions over two years in the Leisure Services Department, and a list of nine other promises, from better training to an agreement to enter into an apprenticeship program. The District through their release repeated that “the [DoK] has been bargaining in good faith, wishing to reach a settlement with Unifor 2300. Oh but were it that simple. The union sees the District of Kitimat’s public communications as bargaining through the media and do not see their actions as being done in good faith. “When the District of Kitimat’s bargaining representatives, including Mayor and Council, resorted to the oldest trick in the bargaining and politics book, where they try and pull the wool

over the public’s eyes by distracting the public’s attention from all of the serious issues in the work place as a whole and try and make it all about money and add in a few Bandaid solutions, we were shocked and surprised,” read an open letter penned by Unifor 2300. In particular the union was shocked that the direction from the District’s bargaining representatives came from Mayor and Council itself, calling it “childish communication and inflammatory statements.” With what the union saw as an “abusive relationship” from the council to the employees, the union say they have decided to post information of their own to shed light on “what is really going on.”

Prince Rupert RCMP want out of decrepit detachment By Martina Perry THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - The time has come: The City of Prince Rupert must construct a new RCMP detachment. At the end of 2014, the City of Prince Rupert received the third and final letter from RCMP headquarters in the Lower Mainland stating Prince Rupert’s detachment is inadequate for policing operations. An agreement between the provincial government and B.C. municipalities states that communities are responsible for providing and maintaining office spaces, heat, lighting and facilities for RCMP that meet the security standard of the force. “The building is quite old and needs a lot of repairs. It’s a capacity issues as well with regards to the number of people we have in the building,” explained Prince Rupert RCMP Inspector Wayne Maughan. The city received the first letter declaring the detachment didn’t meet standards in 2011. Because there is also a

number of issues with Prince Rupert’s fire hall, the city began investigating the feasibility of constructing a jointuse facility for RCMP and firefighters in 2012, however the project stalled. “Basically it stalled because there wasn’t enough money and [it was difficult to meet all of the conditions RCMP require for a new building],” said Mayor Lee Brain. With the arrival of the final letter, the City of Prince Rupert is no longer able to put off replacing the more than 30-year-old detachment. The city can either come up with a solution and construct the new RCMP facility on its terms or wait for RCMP to build it and send the city the bill, said Brain. “We’re going to have to do something about it regardless; we don’t really have a choice. We’d rather be proactive and figure out a solution as soon as possible,” he said. “Basically where we’re at is we’re going to re-look at the whole thing and come up with a new plan. We’re going to work with the RCMP.

The

MARTINA PERRY / THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

The RCMP has told the City of Prince Rupert to build a new detachment or it will do it for the city and send it a bill. We hope to get something lined up and then we’ll see what the next steps are from there.” Exactly how the city will pay for the new facility is unknown at this time. Last week, the city’s chief financial of-

ficer Corinne Bomben told council initial thoughts are for the city to obtain a loan for the project, given borrowing rates are low. Brain said with the promise of LNG coming to the North Coast, the

City of Prince Rupert is more likely to obtain a loan and if LNG projects go through they could assist in paying it off. Bomben noted the advent of major projects could impact the scope of needs for the

new RCMP detachment, suggesting the city could look to proponents to offset the financial implications of that. In order to alleviate the financial impact to taxpayers, Bomben said staff is exploring a rent-

al agreement with the RCMP to repay the capital component of a new building. “Staff intend to engage the community with respect to this notification and begin necessary planning,” said Bomben.

Port Edward fire department seeks aid to buy equipment By Martina Perry THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PORT EDWARD - The Port Edward Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department is calling out for donations to purchase new equipment. Port Edward firefighters hope to raise $10,000 to update rescue equipment, turning to North Coast residents, businesses and groups for donations. Each year the Port Edward Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department responds to approximately 35 calls, many of which are motor vehicle collisions on Highway 16.

“We have a dedicated team of volunteers that commit countless hours to keep the roads in our community safe. Unfortunately, dated technology can sometimes slow our ability to get injured persons out of a confined vehicle or potentially put our members at risk on scene,” reads a letter signed by Shawn Pettitt, Port Edward’s fire chief. Donations will help to purchase a thermal imaging camera, new air bottles, updated communications and other rescue equipment. The equipment would improve Port Ed-

ward firefighters ability to assess scenes, and reduce the time it takes to get to an entrapped person and locate an ejected person.

John Wort Hannam in a publicity photo from his website.

Last show of season Submitted

THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

KITIMAT - Kitimat Concert Association will end its 59th season on March 7 with the return of the one and only John Wort Hannam. John was here for our 50th anniversary season and those that saw his show will tell you it’s one not to miss. In the 12 years since becoming a working musician, John has released five albums and captured a Juno nomination for Best Traditional/Roots album, a Canadian Folk Music Award for Album of the Year and seven grand and first place awards for his songwriting. His rootsy, melodic songs, matched with his narrative writing, laden with lyrical hooks, has taken him from his home in Alberta to his birthplace, the Isle of Jersey, UK, to appearances in festivals from Trafalgar Square to the Smithsonian to Kerrville, TX. John Wort Hannam in concert is a powerful singer with poignant lyrics to match. Hannam is a keen observer of both people and place and takes delight in finding the stories and culture that in-

habit the backroad communities so often missed by those of us less observant. Whether it be the idealistic story of Sointula on Malcolm Island, B.C., the wilds of Labrador, or the weekend life of Twin Butte, Alberta, Hannam finds the lyric that evokes a sense of wonder and delight in the landscape that is his experience For five years John taught grade 9 language arts on the largest reserve in Canada – The Kainai Nation, part of the Blackfoot Confederacy. But in 1997 he heard a Loudon Wainwright III record and was hooked by the music and the stories. In 1998 he bought a guitar and learnt some chords. In 2002 he quit teaching and began to pursue the dream of being a working musician. John comes from a long line of people who make a living using their hands. His great-great grandfather drove horse and buggy for the village doctor. His great-grandfather was a stevedore, his grandfather, a farmer and his father still works as a master carpenter. John now carries on the tradition making his living writing songs and playing music. Show is at 8 p.m.

IF YOU WERE AN OWNER OF A VESSEL THAT WAS ISSUED A CATEGORY L COMMERCIAL HALIBUT FISHING LICENSE BETWEEN 2001 AND 2006 YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS COULD BE AFFECTED BY A CLASS ACTION Background A class action has been certified that alleges that a Department of Fisheries and Oceans scheme to divert individual vessel quota (IVQ) representing 10% of the Total Allowable Catch to the Pacific Halibut Management Association (“PHMA”) for resale back to individual commercial halibut license holders was unlawful and seeks restitution on behalf of members of the Class and Subclass for additional amounts paid by them for the diverted IVQ. The Class Action A class action lawsuit, Burnell v. Canada (Attorney General) (British Columbia Supreme Court Action No. S077807) (the “Class Action”) was brought against the Attorney General of Canada (the “Defendant”) alleging that the conduct of the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans with respect to the fisheries management program it implemented through PHMA was unlawful and enriched the federal government unlawfully at the expense of the Class and Subclass members. The Class Action was certified by the Court on February 18, 2014 (amended on June 13, 2014) on behalf of a Class, represented by Barry Jim Burnell, consisting of: All owners of fishing vessels with a Category L Commercial Halibut License to fish for halibut issued by the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans (“Licensed Vessels”) at any time between 2001 and 2006 inclusive who purchased quota from PHMA, except for the following: (i) the holder of license L-437; (ii) First Nations fishers holding Category FL Commercial Halibut Fishing licenses; and, (iii) members of the subclass. Individuals who meet this definition qualify as Class Members and are represented by the law firms of Camp Fiorante Matthews Mogerman and Ellis Business Lawyers (“Class Counsel”). In addition, on June 13, 2014, the action was certified on behalf of a Subclass, represented by Lorne Nels David Iverson, consisting of: All owners of fishing vessels with a Category L Commercial Halibut License to fish for halibut issued by the Minster of Fisheries and Oceans (“Licensed Vessels”) between 2001 and 2006 inclusive (the “Material Time”) for which quota was purchased from PHMA and: (a) who at any time during the Material Time: i. were directors of PHMA; or, ii. were corporations in which a PHMA director owned more than 50% of the shares; or (b) who claim that they were in a partnership with a PHMA director in relation to a Licensed Vessel and the purchase of quota from PHMA at any time during the Material Time. Individuals who meet this definition qualify as Subclass Members and are represented by the law firm of Underhill, Boies Parker (“Subclass Counsel”). The claims of the representative plaintiffs (Barry Burnell and Lorne Iverson) will be used to determine the legal responsibility of the Defendant to compensate the Class and Subclass members for the alleged losses suffered. Judgment on the common issues for the Class and Subclass whether favourable or not will bind all Class Members and Subclass Members who do not opt out

of the proceeding. You will be bound by the result of the Class Action whether the lawsuit is successful or unsuccessful and will not be able to start or pursue your own legal claim against the Defendant. The common issues can be found at www.cfmlawyers.ca/active-litigation/commercialhalibut-fishing/ or by request from Class Counsel or Subclass Counsel.

Party bus licensing tightened up to take effect by May, before high school graduation events that are a mainstay of the party bus business. Danielle Raymond and her mother Julie attended the announcement, calling it part of the reforms they have sought since Danielle’s sister Shannon died in July 2008 after drinking and then boarding a party bus where she took the street drug ecstasy. Shannon’s death was the first in a series of tragedies with party buses, which have expanded to 4,000 vehicles in B.C. Danielle said her own research showed companies advertising open bars on board. “Basically their whole business operates around facilitating the minors who use them to get hammered, for lack of a better term,” she said. In February 2013, 16-year-old Ernest Azoad-

VICTORIA - Relatives of a teenage girl who died after taking drugs on a “party bus” applauded changes made Thursday to tighten licensing regulations for limousine operators. Transportation Minister Todd Stone announced an overhaul of limousine licensing that will require each limousine or bus with perimeter seating to go through its own inspection and hold a licence. This replaces a “general authorization” limousine licence that allowed party bus operators to work anywhere in B.C. and add vehicles to their fleet at any time. Stone said strict licensing and display of a special plate will allow police to know where party buses are operating so they can be checked. The changes are

am died on a party bus in Surrey. In November of that year, a 17-year-old girl from Abbotsford was dumped at a truck stop an assaulted after a trip on a party bus. NDP transportation critic George Heyman echoed the Raymonds’ suggestion to consider requiring chaperones on party buses to make sure under-age drinking or drug use don’t occur. That’s part of pending legislation in Washington state, where party buses are allowed to serve alcohol to those old enough to drink. Heyman said the government should also require safe drop-off locations for the buses, which now drop off passengers at bars and then pick them up later to go to another bar. “One of the roles of the chaperones would be to ensure that no drinking takes place on party buses, period,” he said.

SMITHERS - The provincial government is providing ongoing support for the BC Centre of Training Excellence in Mining through one-time funding of $125,000. The B.C. Centre of Training Excellence in Mining is based at Northwest Community College. The centre works with the mining and mineral industries and public post-secondary institutions throughout the province to ensure students receive targeted training that will give them marketable indemand skills for these industries. The activities of the BC Centre of Training Excellence in Mining complement the B.C.’s Skills

for Jobs Blueprint: Re-Engineering Education and Training, which is aligning education and training with in-demand occupations that are critical to the mining sector and other industries. The B.C. Centre of Training Excellence in Mining was announced November 2012 and launched May 23, 2013, to help provide an improved training experience for students at partner institutions. Additional funds have been provided to public post-secondary partners of the centre for related programming. B.C. Centre of Training Excellence in Mining advisory council chair Dave Lefebure said

the grant is appreciated. “Our partners from the mining industry, post-secondary sector, Aboriginal communities and regions across the province appreciate the Ministry of Advanced Education’s leadership in establishing the B.C. Centre of Training Excellence in Mining and their continued support for our projects,” he said. This new funding allows the Centre of Training Excellence in Mining, supported by its host institution Northwest Community College, to build on the successes to date and continue to support innovative training solutions for the mining industry.”

Prince Rupert RCMP taking aim at illegal highway-side firing range By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - Prince Rupert RCMP are seeking to put an end to the use of an unofficial and unlawful firing range located less than 250 metres away from Highway 16. The area, accessed through a trail located 1.7 kilometres away east of the Port Edward turnoff, is covered in shotgun shells and discarded items riddled with bullet holes. It even has a stand in one of the nearby trees that can be used for shooting, but Const. Matt Ericson of the RCMP said anyone discharging a firearm there is doing so illegally. “People are using high-power rifles out here, as well as shotguns

Early budget projects a shortfall By Martina Perry THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - The City of Prince Rupert’s chief financial officer Corinne Bomben presented a report on preliminary estimates for the 2015 budget, a report that showed council will once again need to cover a projected shortfall. When the city’s expected revenues and expenditures are taken into consideration, the city is projecting a $220,000 shortfall in the 2015 budget. Bomben said the anticipated shortfall is caused by expected hikes in energy costs, as well as contractual wage and benefit increases that will cost an additional $400,000 in 2015. Bomben said another contributing factor to the shortfall is the port property tax rate cap enacted by the provincial government. Because of the legislation, the city can only charge major industrial property owners certain mill rates on federal port land. “Part of the reason for the disparity in funding is the fact that everyone else’s assessments have gone up, yet industry evaluations in the absence of investment depreciate, they go down yearly. The only way to keep the industrial tax base flat is to have new investment every year,” Bomben explained. Projections for 2015 show the city will receive approximately $585,000 in taxes from major industries, in contrast to the $712,000 it collected in 2011. “The residential burden has increased from $4.7 million to $6.6 million in 10 years. The business burden has increased from $3.2 million to $4.3 million. Major industrial tax revenue has declined from $4.5 million to $2.8 million. There were two new industries and an expansion of the coal terminal in this timeframe,” Bomben said. “The result to the rest of the tax classes is that they take up the share of the burden. This translates into higher mill rates for residential, business and the

light industrial classes. This makes it less affordable to open a small-to-medium sized business venture. Ultimately, the effects to Prince Rupert is that this provincial-international competitiveness scheme stifles the competitiveness of entrepreneurs wishing to locate in Prince Rupert.” Based on the first draft of the 2015 BC Assessment property assessment roll, preliminary estimates show the city will require a mill rate increase of 1.9 per cent to the adjusted mill rate. While assessments have increased, the city must adjust the mill rate in order to achieve the same level of taxation revenue as in 2014, which was $14,510,000. The proposed 2015 municipal mill rate for Prince Rupert residenCorinne Bomben tial property owners is 7.37660 compared to 8.42627 in 2014, whereas small to medium-sized business owners would have a mill rate of 25.77710 this year, in contrast to 27.85141 last year. Based on this rate, a homeowner with an average assessed property value of $229,000 will pay $1,689 in taxes in 2015, up $37 from 2014 when the average assessed value of a home was $196,000 that cost $1,652 in taxes. Bomben noted BC Assessment will release the revised roll on March 31, with mill rates being adjusted to reflect any changes. Furthermore, Bomben’s report noted that in 2015 all capital purchases and works will be funded through grants, reserves or operating surplus carried forward from 2014. Additionally, CityWest has informed the city it expects to pay the $400,000 dividend this year, the same amount as 2014. The City of Prince Rupert will host two public consultation meetings on the 2015 budget, the first on Monday, March 9 at the Lester Centre of the Arts at 7 p.m. and the second on Monday, March 23 at 7 p.m. in City Hall council chambers.

Set that clock ahead! TERRACE - It’s time this weekend to follow that old adage – spring forward, fall back. And that means setting clocks ahead by one hour, officially at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 8. The purpose of daylight saving time, is to save energy by moving an additional hour of daylight from the

morning to the evening. Numerous studies have shown that moving clocks forward actually does save energy. It’s said that during the First World War Germany and its allies were the first to adopt daylight saving time as a way to conserve energy for the war effort. Britain, other countries in Europe, Canada and the US followed.

Greg Rensmaag and his son Connor travelled from Maple Ridge to Victoria to join a hunter rally at the B.C. legislature March 2.

Hunters fail to sway the gov’t By Tom Fletcher

THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

VICTORIA – Hundreds of hunters, some wearing camouflage and blowing duck calls, gathered at the B.C. legislature March 2 to protest the share of big-gam hunting permits set aside for guide-outfitters and their out-of-province clients. About 300 hunters and supporters attended the rally, bringing petitions with thousands of names to present in the legislature. The largest petition called for a limit of 10 per cent share of moose and elk allocated for non-resident hunters, and 15 per cent for mountain goats and grizzly bears, prized by trophy hunters. It was the latest of a series of protests that began in December when the government announced an increase of limited-entry hunting opportunities for guideoutfitters. Sean Richardson, president of the Oceola Fish and Game Club in the Okanagan, said with the resurgence of hunting popularity in B.C., the government is moving in the wrong direction by increasing commercialization of wildlife harvesting. “We need to stop managing a diminishing resource through social management, and we need to start working towards making more wildlife,” Richardson said. Forests Minister

Steve Thomson said he understands the principle behind the ongoing protest, but the latest allocation decision was made after 10 years of discussions with resident hunters and guideoutfitters, and he is not prepared to change it again. When the plan was announced in December, the government estimated that it represented a shift of 168 animals in limited-entry hunt areas from resident hunters to guide outfit-

ters. After resident hunters and the B.C. Wildlife Federation objected, Forests Minister Steve Thomson announced in February that is being adjusted to a shift of about 60 animals to guide-outfitters. But the protests have continued. B.C. hunters are concerned that the share reserved for guide-outfitters is higher than anywhere else in North America. Under the latest policy for limited-entry hunts, that share is 20

per cent for elk, 20 or 25 per cent for moose depending on the restricted region, 35 per cent for mountain goat, and 40 per cent for grizzly bears. Open season areas for moose and other animals remain in the southern Interior and northeast, where anyone can buy a licence and tag. Abundant species such as mule deer, whitetail deer and black bear have no hunting quotas.

SPORTS Kings of the CIHL look to claim Coy A22

www.bclocalnews.com /bc_north

Friday, March 6, 2015 The Northern Connector

Inside

TERRACE - The Terrace River Kings are the 2015 Central Interior Hockey League champions – and the team is now focussed on winning the Coy Cup at the end of March. After a 3-2 defeat in front of a packed house at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex Saturday in Williams Lake – game two of the best of three series against defending CIHL champions the Williams Lake Stampeders –  Terrace rallied back to capture a 4-3 overtime win in a barn burner Sunday, claiming the CIHL playoff title.

Terrace claimed game one of the series at home Feb. 14. River Kings president Ray Hallock said what helped the team stand out was team spirit. “This team from the coaches down to the newest rookie all worked together as a team. There was great cameraderie in the dressing room and on the ice. This was not a team of superstars but rather a team where everybody made the maximum effort.” Chapen Leblond and Steve Cullis gave the River Kings a 2-0 lead after one period of play, before Wil-

liams Lake’s Jassi Sangha put the Stamps on the board six-and-a-half minutes into the second frame. Leblond added his second of the contest four minutes later, before Stampeders’ captain Aaron Zurak cut the Williams Lake deficit to 3-2 heading into the third. There, Williams Lake defenceman Dan Cohen fired a blast from just outside the left-wing faceoff circle to fool River Kings’ netminder Patrick Leal to send the contest to overtime. A disallowed Terrace goal provided some controversy later in the

frame, before sudden death overtime saw Tristan Murray bang one past Stampeders’ goaltender Justin Foote near the five-minute mark during a scramble in front of the net to seal the deal. Adding to the drama, prior to the game-winning goal, Stampeder Dylan Richardson came up short on a penalty shot attempt. The River Kings are now set on winning the Coy Cup – to be held this year in Fort Nelson. “We do expect to win it,” said Hallock. “And so far it looks like a full squad to Fort Nelson.” He hopes that winning the Coy

Cup might help build the River Kings fanbase. “Our fans in Terrace have been very supportive of the team,” he said, noting the team still had a hard time filling the stands this year. And they might see themselves up against the Stamps once again. The Stampeders are trying to figure out the logistics of the possibility of playing a challenge game with the Powell River Regals to decide who will attend this year’s Coy Cup in Fort Nelson.

Mount Elizabeth rink finally does it By Richard Mason THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

KITIMAT - In 1979, the first year girls were included, the Mount Elizabeth Girls Curling Team lead by Karina Dzuiba won the BC High School Girls Curling Championship. There have been close calls over the past 37 years. Finally the Mount Elizabeth Girls team consisting of Taylor Reese-Hansen, Micaela Stevenson, Leah Anthony, Emma Baker, Jordan Zanella and Coach Laurel DeGoeij have ended the long drought. The team competed in Creston, February 19-21 at the 2014-15 championships finishing with a six win and one loss record to win the schools first provincial curling title in 36 years. The championship didn’t start off well as the team quickly fell behind 4-0 in the first end and down 5 after the second end against Selkirk Secondary from Kimberley. The team got their game going in the third end and fought hard the rest of the way only to lose by a score of 7 to 6. In their second game the team met Centennial from Coquitlam scoring immediately on route to a 8

to 2 victory. The third game found them playing arch rivals College Heights of Prince George. These two teams met the last two years with College Heights coming out on top in two hard fought and highly entertaining games. This time College Heights lead by one going into the final end and Mount Elizabeth had last rock. College Heights had to have a blank or steal to win. The Mount Elizabeth team scored five and won 7 - 3. Their fourth game was against Elgin Park Secondary from South Surrey. Mount Elizabeth prevailed winning 5 to 4. At this point four teams had a 3 - 1 game record. Their next two opponents Ballenas from Parksville and Salmon Arm were in that group. The Ballenas game ended up being no contest. Mount Elizabeth scored often and in bunches going away with a 12 - 3 win. Going into the final game of Friday Salmon Arm and Mount Elizabeth were tied in the lead with 4 - 1 records. In another tight hard fought game Salmon Arm held a one point lead at the break. Mount Elizabeth tied the game in the fifth and then stole three points in the sixth end to take the lead for good. The teams traded single points in

Now they led the standings with a record of five wins and one loss only one game remained. Their final game on Saturday was against St. Thomas More Secondary of Burnaby. At this point St. Thomas More was in last place. The girls knew that they had to take this game seriously as a loss would

drop them into a three-way tie causing tie breakers and a chance of a finish as low as third. Coming out flying, scoring early and in every end the girls won 10-0 in six ends and therefore becoming the 201415 BC High School Girls Provincial Curling Champions. On a fitting note the Smithers Secondary boys team also came in first for our zone. This is the only time that Zone

8 encompassing the Pacific North West has won both the boys and the girls in the same year. Coach Laurel DeGoeij who has been with the girls the last three years was extremely proud of how the girls handled themselves on and off the ice, and how the young ambassadors not only represented Mount Elizabeth but also our community of Kitimat and their club the Hirsh Creek Golf and Winter Club.

Charles Hays Rainmakers win zones, ready for provincials By Kevin Campbell THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - Everyone knows about Justin McChesney. It’s a little hard for the six-footten Prince Rupert basketball star to keep under the radar in a town this crazed about its court heroes. The B.C. provincial Under-17 player had been sidelined for the majority of the season with an an-

kle injury and played sparingly in the games he was needed in. The Charles Hays senior boys basketball team’s followers couldn’t really get a good glimpse of what the big man could do in his Grade 11 year. That is, not until the ‘AAA’ Northwest zones championship last weekend where the forward was absolutely dynamite against the Smithers Secondary Gryphons in an 84-71 victory that gave Charles

Hays its fourth-straight senior boys Northwest zone championship. “I thought he played unreal today,” said Rainmakers head coach Mel Bishop. With his injury firmly a thing of the past, McChesney stole the show on Saturday afternoon, facing off against the Gryphons and taking the tournament MVP honour. Scoring 28 points to pace his team and playing on the seniors

squad for the second year in a row, McChesney was finally able to let loose and show the zone why he’s considered one of the most dangerous and versatile players in the entire province. Positioned deep in the paint on the defensive side of the ball, no Gryphon wanted to even go near the towering figure while they were on the attack. This forced the visiting team to try and sink some mid-

range jump shots and perimeter looks, but luckily for the Rainmakers star McChesney, his supporting cast this year is just as good. The fourth-seeded Rainmakers head to B.C. High School Boys 3A Basketball Championships from March 11 – 14 in Langley with their first game at 1:45 p.m. next Wednesday. For a full version of this story, visit www.thenorthernview.com.

North Coast MLA seeks answers to Highway of Tears tour By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice is looking for answers regarding a trip along Highway 16 the Ministry of Transportation made last summer, a trip she says officials have not been able to produce evidence of. Rice submitted a Freedom of Information (FOI) request to ascertain the approximately “80 organizations, local governments, First Nations and others” Transportation Minister Todd Stone told CBC in December were included as part of consultations along Highway 16, but was told an extension was needed as the notes were handwritten and needed to be transcribed. But on Feb. 17, Rice was told there were no records related to her enquiry and the matter was now closed. “We know that there are records because the ministry asked for an extension to our FOI request. They said they needed an extension because the records were hand-written and needed to be transcribed. Can the Minister of Citizen Services explain what happened to those hand-written records and why they are being hidden from the public?” she said dur-

ing question period on Feb. 24. “The people of Northern British Columbia deserve to know why the B.C. Liberal government is hiding the results of any consultations that were had. We don’t know how many of these meetings actually took place, and whether the minister is misrepresenting what people said. Northwest communities have heard enough excuses, it’s time for action to bring safe transportation options along the Highway of Tears,” she added after leaving the chambers. But the response came not from Minister of Citizen Services Amrik Virk, but from Stone himself. “All Freedom of Information requests that come into the government are handled by professionals in the civil service, but the fundamental issue is that this government is taking action to ensure that safety along Highway 16 is improved and that there are safer transportation options available,” he said, adding dialogue with groups along the highway is continuing. “There is an appeals process through the office of the privacy commissioner, if the members don’t feel they have been provided the information they requested then that is a

process they should engage.” However, following an enquiry from the Northern View, the Ministry of Transportation sent along a list of meeting locations that included 13 communities spanning from Prince Rupert in the west to McBride in the east. “The meetings were held to hear directly from community leaders about what transportation services currently exist to support finding affordable, practical and sustainable transportation solutions. Through the meetings, we heard about transportation challenges that residents face every day,” said a ministry spokesperson. As well as a lack of records, Rice took issue with statements made during the interview in which Stone said he had “heard from First Nations and other local government” that a shuttlebus is “probably not practical”. “The Minister of Transportation told public that the people along the Highway 16 corridor that people didn’t want safer, affordable transportation, he said that nobody thought it was practical, yet that is not what people have told me. People up and down the highway all want the same thing, safe, affordable transportation. Maybe that is why these records are

However, the ministry spokesperson said the need for varying efforts to improve safety was a common theme during the tour. “It was evident that because of the significant distance between communities along Highway 16, a ‘one size fits all’ approach wasn’t feasible. Instead, we’re focusing on finding practical solutions to help residents living along the corridor,” said the spokesperson.

WHY LNG IN B.C.? A SPECIAL SERIES ON LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS

cubic feet in Northeast B.C.

(

In fact, enough to supply LNG export operations and domestic needs for 150 years, so it makes sense to sell some of it

Natural gas has been produced safely in B.C. for more than 60 years. It is as much a part of our resource wealth as forestry and fishing. And like forestry and fishing, the natural gas sector provides thousands of stable, well-paid jobs for British Columbians who work for gas producers in the Northeast and for suppliers and service providers throughout the province. The industry also generates tax revenue to help pay for social services and infrastructure like salaries for nurses and teachers, and new roads, schools and hospitals. But unlike

NEW MARKETS FOR OUR NATURAL GAS... in Asia and elsewhere

(

(

an estimated

BRITISH COLUMBIA has far more natural gas than we use

China alone expects to use 17.5 trillion cubic feet of natural gas a year by 2040 – three times more than in 2012

(

WE’VE GOT NATURAL GAS...

forestry and fishing, which are now mature industries, natural gas is entering what the International Energy Agency has described as The Golden Age of Gas. Demand is rising rapidly and B.C. is ideally positioned to meet some of it. Exporting B.C.’s natural gas is nothing new; it was first transported via Vancouver to the U.S. in 1957 and the U.S. has remained our main market ever since. But with the U.S. producing more of its own gas it now makes sense to sell our surplus overseas where there’s a demand. The only difference is that the gas must be converted into a liquid so it can be shipped. That’s why B.C. is developing a new industry to produce LNG.

The BC LNG Alliance is the voice of British Columbia’s new LNG export industry. Our mission is to foster the growth of a safe, environmentally responsible and globally competitive LNG industry in British Columbia and Canada.
