PRINCE RUPERT - Ria Smith of Hazelton, right, was one of the big winners March 28 at a business development event held in Prince Rupert. She won $10,000 for having the best new business idea - a mobile food company. The ThriveNorth event was staged by Futurepreneur Canada and financed by BG Canada, one of the companies with plans to build a liquefied natural gas plant on the north coast. That’s Futurepreneur Canada CEO Julia Deans presenting the cheque. For more on the ThriveNorth competition and enterprise, please turn to Page 9.

Another gold mine project approved VANCOUVER - The provincial government has given its blessing to another potential mine, this time the Brucejack gold project north of Stewart owned by Pretium Resources. In releasing the decision to grant an environmental assessment certificate, environment minister Mary Polak and mines minister Bill Bennett noted the company will store a portion of its waste tailings underground and won’t need a tailings storage facility and dam. Other tailings will be deposited into Brucejack Lake which does not contain any fish. But the ministers did add waters from the area do flow into the Unuk River.

“This is an important river with fisheries values for British Columbia and Alaska and was the focus of the involvement and comments of US state and federal officials,” they said. For that reason, the two ministers said there would be conditions on the final environmental permit. “The project will move forward only when, and if, regulators are satisfied proposed discharges will comply with provincial guidelines and therefore will not cause significant adverse effects to the receiving environment and the Unuk River,” they said. The ministers also said the Nisga’a Lisims Government and

adjacent aboriginal groups had been involved in project planning and have approved of the proposal. They were satisfied that certificate conditions would balance any social and other effects on the Nisga’a, the Tahltan and the Skii km Lax Ha. As with other existing and proposed projects in that region, Pretium will have to pay into a management program to finance efforts to maintain the moose population. The mine would draw power by constructing an extension to BC Hydro’s 138kV line which now serves Stewart. Pretium has indicated it will take measures to reduce the foot-

print of the work needed to put in the hydro line. Pretium says it has enough mineable material for a mine lasting 18 years to produce an estimated 7.3 million ounces of gold. The estimated project cost is approximately (US) $750 million, which Pretium still needs to raise although the company hopes to begin work soon. Construction is expected to result in 500 jobs with 300 jobs mining jobs afterward. The project still requires the environmental approval of the federal government. The exact area where Pretium wants to work has been called the Valley of the Kings.

Trailer write off still unresolved By Cameron Orr



A rendering of the new housing development proposed in Prince Rupert.

Subdivision planned for Prince Rupert By Shaun Thomas


PRINCE RUPERT Plans for the recentlycleared land at the end of Park Avenue became apparent during the March 23 Prince Rupert city council meeting with a new block of housing slated for the area. The Bryton Group formally outlined its plans for 30 single family lots in what it is calling the Oceanview Development Property, with 15 of those to directly overlook the BC Ferries terminal and the harbour.

As well as the housing, the developers have included plans to extend Graham Avenue to connect with Highway 16 just before the terminal. However, city planner Zeno Krekic noted the construction of the road, which would create another means of accessing the upper westside, is contingent upon the Bryton Group purchasing small pieces of land from the City of Prince Rupert and BC Ferries. “The location of this development has both opportunities and challenges,” he said.

“At the top of the list But it has also inof opportunities is the structed the developer to aspect and the view.

SHELTER plans. The current plan for

development is only 25 per cent of the original proposal, noted the company in its submission to council. According to council the initial plan included multi-family residential developments to the east of the new housing, but the Bryton Group said “meetings with the City of Prince Rupert have resulted in the scaled down application”.

KITIMAT - Kitimat Council will press ahead in an effort to resolve a tax-write off issue in the Vista Village Trailer Park. Last month council opted to hold off deciding on issuing a tax write-off to a dilapidated trailer on encouragement from the Housing Resource Project that arrangements could be worked out that could make all parties happy, including those who have gone through the revolving door of ownership of the trailer. The owner of the park, Lee Ann Wolfin, has wanted the tax write off because without it she can’t have the trailer demolished. The District treasurer also supported the write off, saying the effort to recoup the approximately $1,300 tax bill could be more costly than washing their hands of it. When council held off allowing a tax write off last month they hoped the one month time buffer would give the Housing Resource the chance to reach the owner and work out a solution. A report from housing worker Paul Lagace to council shows attempts were made but did not prove fruitful in resolving the issue. Even so there is a detailed proposal on how to handle the trailer that won’t require a tax write off. Council approved for their staff to write to Wolfin to present the plan. The proposed plan comes in several steps, which does include repayment of the taxes to the District. The plan has the current owner offering to pay the taxes, even as the taxes are owed under the name of a previous owner, while allowing the current owner to sell the trailer, at an asking price of $5,000. On sale of the trailer, the new owner would have to commit to fixing the stairs to the door and fix the leaks on the roof within six weeks. The report says those actions would address concerns on the trailer’s condition while also showing there are no tenancy transfer issues at the park with the owner. While the option to merely go ahead with the tax write-off process was there, and discussed, council clearly seemed interested in continuing to press the issue. “I’m willing to give the cat one last kick to see if something works,” said Larry Walker.

Free winter parking, ramp upgrades sought at Rushbrook By Shaun Thomas


PRINCE RUPERT - Wes Baker is asking city council to lift some of the financial burden for Prince Rupert boating enthusiasts while also making it safer for people to launch from Rushbrook Floats. Baker, who was joined in council by a number of supporters, presented council with a petition signed by 143 people asking the city to remove the parking fee

for the winter months and make it cheaper for taxpayers to use the facility. “We propose to change the bylaw to allow daily parking at no cost for all boat trailers launching from Rushbrook from Oct. 1 to May 1 of each year. Presently, only a small number of locals launch in the winter and the lot is mostly empty ... Cow Bay parking is free year-round, so why not free winter parking at Rushbrook?” he said.

“The other change would be to allow local residents who pay taxes to buy one annual pass for the parking lot at Rushbrook for $100. It could be purchased when they pay their annual utilities bill or residential taxes in early July ... right now it is $200 for a truck and boat trailer and that is just at the level people won’t pay for it because you would have to go out 20 times to cover the cost. A reduced charge of $100 seems a lot more reasonable.”

The idea was one that found vocal support from some on council. “During the winter that parking lot is empty ... during the winter I don’t see why the taxpayer should be punished when they want to go out fishing and there is an empty lot,” said Coun. Barry Cunnningham. But it wasn’t just the fee for parking Baker took issue with, calling the condition of the launch ramp “embarrassing”. “Right now there are pieces of

it missing and boat trailers are being damaged when they go over the edge at the bottom or hit one of the rocks at low tide,” he explained. “Surely if the city can afford 51 slots for yachts to moor, it can afford to properly maintain the ramp at Rushbrook.” Mayor Lee Brain noted that work is already underway on the Rushbrook file. “We are definitely aware of the issue and want to come to a resolution,” he said.

Slight movement on strike front By Cameron Orr


KITIMAT - By deadline for this paper there was not much to report save for the fact that Unifor 2300 has presented the District of Kitimat an offer to settle. As for what’s inside this latest offer from the union to resolve a strike that has dragged on for over a month, that’s unclear. On Tuesday the District of Kitimat’s own negotiating team were looking over the details of the agreement. Meanwhile the District has had to cancel the 2015 Spring

Craft Fair which was scheduled for April 11 due to the strike. As well the annual Health & Safety Fair scheduled for April 25 at the fire hall has been postponed to a later time. In response to the strike the District did issue another press release on Monday, listing out “facts” on the strike as they see it. “The District of Kitimat has negotiated – it has listened to the Union and agreed to many of the Union’s demands,” reads the release on “The District has been clear since the start of negotiations that some items are too costly or unacceptably restrict

the right of management to make workforce decisions.” Among the the stated facts in the release are ”Despite having received a Final Offer which would have avoided a strike, and make District employees one of the highest paid municipal workforces in the province, the Union chose to go on strike,” and “The Union has remained steadfast in its stance that all Union’s demands must be accommodated. The District says it can’t give in to more union demands “without severely compromising its ability to manage or without extreme budget implications.”

This is Davis’ side venture, he has lived in Kitimat for two years and works at the KMP project. (Although he likes it here enough that he plans to stay once his work is over.)

Gateway doc gets northern screenings By Cameron Orr


KITIMAT - Two Vancouverbased journalists have produced a documentary on the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project, and the film is seeing a premier in the Northern region of B.C. Tomas Borsa told the Sentinel that releasing the film in the North was done as a kind of respect, where other times it seems journalists may descend on a location and leave without ever catching up with their local supporters afterwards. He said it’s also a form of peer review. “We thought of it almost as peer review,” he said. “It only makes sense to us to premier it in the north because we’re bound to have gotten something wrong.”

The film was co-made with Borsa and Jean-Philippe Marquis. “It’s largely interviews with people who are affected by [Gateway], who live in the immediate path of it,” said Borsa. There is extensive use of historical archives, and covers perspectives from the oil source in Alberta right to the coast. He said the film does touch on the plebiscite in Kitimat, and the 1976 Kitimat pipeline proposal called Pacific Link. Borsa said four people are featured in Kitimat-segments in the film, while around 20 people were interviewed through the filming process. “The film also actually opens with this scene in Kitimat, and looks at this 1976 Kitimat pipeline proposal,” he said, and noted Kitimat gets another 10 minutes

dedicated later in the film. As for the themes of the film, Borsa says it’s a look back at past proposals and how residents and companies can learn for the future. “It seems that history has a funny way of repeating itself,” he said. “Even if the Northern Gateway doesn’t go ahead...I pretty much guarantee that within five years there will be another project.” He adds, “Learning from the mistakes of the past will be very important. “They [companies] need to look back on these public hearings...and be a little more proactive in engaging with people,” he said. The film in Kitimat will be shown at the Legion hall on April 7.

Fungus growth threatens area plum trees TERRACE - A local tree expert wants residents to pay more attention to a fungus he says will kill plum trees and, potentially, cherry ones as well. It’s called Black Knot and Charles Claus want neighbourhoods to band together to eradicate the fungus. “What I’d like to see here are Black Knot-free zones,” said Claus. The fungus spreads through airborne spores in the spring, settling on the branches of otherwise healthy plum trees. It turns from a green colour to a tan one before fully settling in as a rough-surfaced elongated black growth. Claus is so worried about the fungus that samples he shows people are wrapped in several layers of plastic bags. Infected limbs will eventually be circled by the fungus, choking them off and comprising the health of the tree to the point it will need to be taken out. “They can be pruned out. Cut off and then burned, or buried two feet into the ground,” said Claus of infected branches. “But if it really takes hold, you’ll need to take the whole tree out.” And when cutting out infested branches, Claus said a saw or other cutting implement needs to be sanitized after each cut. “Use Lysol or a 10 per cent bleach solution. You need to do that after each cut.” Once spotted and it becomes familiar to the eye, Claus said it’s surprising how strongly Black Knot has taken hold here. “It’s here with a vengeance,” he said. “But we can take measures.” Once a person deals with Black Knot on their own property, Claus says they should speak with their neighbours about doing the same. Some plum varieties, such as Stanley, are hardier and more resistant to the fungus. Claus does add there are preventative measures readily available to deter Black Knot’s progress. One is using a combination of lime sulphur/dormant oil when a tree is in its dormant stage. “The temperature should be two degrees above freezing and have at least two days of it not raining,” said Claus. Feeding a tree using healthy compost or aged horse manure will beef up its resistance as well, he said. Nutrient spikes can also be inserted into the ground under a tree. Claus is also an advocate of careful pruning so as not to leave stubs. “These little stubs or any portion of a branch that was improperly pruned stresses the tree as the improper cut invites rot which weakens the tree which in turn makes the trees in the prunus family, plums in particular, susceptible to black knot infection,” he said. Proper pruning also allows more air flow through a tree, a circumstance that contributes to its overall health. “Terrace can grow wonderful plums. Wellpruned and spaced, we can have wonderful plum trees,” said Claus. “As a community our historical identity revolves around a rich First Nations culture, logging and saw milling, salmon fishing in the Skeena River, and agriculture; both fruit tree growing and vegetable production,” said Claus. “Fruit tree production is a very unique and vital component of the Terrace story, one that we need to value and preserve,” he said.


Elongated, rough-surfaced and black, a fungus called Black Knot is putting area plum trees at risk. Terrace-based tree expert Charles Claus, above, is calling for neighbourhoods to band together to rid their trees of the fungus. Meet Miss Lucy!

Lucy is a two year old, Yorkshire/Maltese cross. She gets along well with other dogs and cats. Lucy would benefit from having a confident owner who can work on desensitizing her to new situations. She would do well in a calm environment. If you are looking for a smaller active dog Lucy might be the right match for you. Come down to the Prince Rupert BCSPCA and meet Lucy!

Crowded feeders a health risk for returning songbirds By Tom Fletcher


VICTORIA - Backyard bird enthusiasts should regularly clean their bird feeders and bird baths at this time of year, as migratory songbirds return from their winter retreats. Species such as pine siskins, redpolls and grosbeaks congregate in large flocks in spring, and their close contact at a time of weather stress and nutrition shortage can pass diseases from bird to bird, says a bulletin from the B.C. forests ministry. Cleaning feeders every two weeks and changing water in bird baths every few days can reduce the spread of avian pox virus, avian conjunctivitis and salmonella bacteria among birds. Using metal or plastic feeders rather than wood, and spreading out multiple small feeders that only allow one or two birds at a time also reduces the risk of disease transmission. Wildlife biologists say these bird diseases can also spread to people handling infected birds or contaminated materials. Placing bird feeders over a

concrete surface allows easier cleanup of litter underneath, which can also prevent spread of infection. If you see one or two sick birds in your area, biologists advise clearing and scrubbing the feeder. If there are more than three diseased birds, take your feeder down for a week or two to encourage birds to disperse. Here are some common signs to look for: • Birds with avian conjunctivitis have red, swollen, watery or crusted eyes. Infection can be spread by feeders with small openings that birds touch with the sides of their heads. Infected birds may have trouble feeding and remain on the ground near the feeder. • Birds with salmonella bacterium may be found dead or appear tame, sitting quietly for hours or days, often with their feathers fluffed up. Salmonella can easily spread to pets or humans, and so strict hygiene should be enforced in these situations. • Birds with avian pox virus may have warty lesions on the unfeathered parts of their head, legs or feet.

Business challenge winners named By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - More than $35,000 was handed out to young entrepreneurs from throughout the region on Saturday night as BG Canada and Futurepreneur Canada hosted the ThriveNorth Business Challenge awards ceremony. The competition, which invited entrepreneurs between the ages of 18 and 39 to submit applications for funding for their new or existing business, had more than 50 entries that were then fil-

tered down to 12 finalists in three categories. The finalists had their business plans and ideas scrutinized by a panel of business experts to determine the $10,000 grand prize winner and the $2,500 runner-up. Prince Rupert’s Amy Dopson was one of the big winners on the night, taking home $10,000 in the Business Growth Opportunity category, with the money to be used to further grow the awardwinning PAC 10 Tutoring. Jeffery Minhinnick of Terrace was the runner-up with the idea of making

The Best New Business winner was Ria Smith of Hazelton for her idea of launching a mobile food company, with Elanor Stewart of Smithers finishing second for her artisan-based business. The New Social Enterprise category was won by Terrace’s Nathan Hoffart to launch a speech language pathology clinic, with Prince Rupert’s Harvey James Russel placing second for his plans for a marine-based research and consulting firm.

Authors launch Book of Rainbows Volume 2 By Kevin Campbell


PRINCE RUPERT Duane Jackson, Justine Knott and Kathy Nelson used to have a list of potential interviewees pinned on the wall of their offices at the Hecate Strait Employment Development Society. The list gave them guidance in their 28week journey to target and reach suitable Prince Rupert residents, whose stories they could share and publish in their project, the second volume of the Book of Rainbows – a job creation partnership project between Hecate Strait and the Employment Program of BC, funded by the Province of British Columbia and the Government of Canada. What they quickly found out, however, was that their pinned-up list would be discarded in favour of general chats with Prince Rupert residents out in the public. Their new method proved to be overwhelmingly successful. Jackson, Knott and Nelson found 50 residents with tremendous stories tracing Aboriginal descent, immigration and

more, diving into the coastal city’s history through the oldest communicative medium of all – story-telling. “We started going out into the community and talking to people and running into people in store aisles and parking lots, and told them ‘This is what we’re doing,’,” said project coordinator Jackson at the Book of Rainbows Volume Two’s launch at Rupert Square Mall last Saturday. “There’s just unbelievably humble people in Prince Rupert. They’re not saying ‘I’ve got a story for you’, they’re saying ‘You know who you should talk to?’ and after that the list came down off the wall. We stopped making [it].” A $56,000 grant from the government’s Job Creation Partnership helped the book become a reality and numerous people contributed – from Danielle Dalton whose energy and enthusiasm Jackson said was contagious from the first volume, published in just November 2013, to book designer Aaron Dalton to contributing Tsimshian artist Pe-

ter Dennis, to Knott and Nelson, the two writers who gained a considerable amount of skills in researching, writing and computer proficiency among other things. “You can do this over and over again. You’re telling people’s stories, but you’re also talking about the history of your community ... With community engagement, you get the understanding of how we got here and a really good idea of the decisions that were made and the decisions that worked and the decisions that didn’t work,” said Jackson, adding there was never a shortage of fascinating subjects from which to draw tales from. “This book could be written 20 times,” he said. Knott’s engagement with recent immigrants or with Aboriginal residents with strong roots tied to the land gave her a sense of perspective and offered the writer a glimpse into the different fabric that’s sewn into Prince Rupert’s diversity. “We heard so many stories from people [from] all over the world who choose to live in


PRINCE RUPERT - As the commencement of demolition and salvage work at Watson Island nears, Quickload Logistics has set its sights on the former Canadian Freightways yard for its container stuffing operations. The company’s request to rezone the land came before city council on March 23, with the area needing a slight zoning amendment from Light Industrial (M1) to General Industrial (M2) before Quickload could set up at the site. “The conundrum in this situation is that it is not a stock use. We don’t have it contemplated in our zoning bylaw. Moving containers, storage and stuffing containers best fits into M2 ... it is a situation that arises from new industrial development,” explained city planner Zeno Krekic, who noted the number of trucks entering the facility from Highway 16 may require discussions with the

province. “One of the things that I advised the proponent very strongly is that, prior to council giving first and second reading today, I would be referring it to the Ministry of Transportation. The highway is a controlled access highway, so we will require their comments before council can consider approval to the proponent.” After first and second readings, a public hearing on the matter has been scheduled for the April 13 meeting of council. However, council did have some questions about what else could be done on the land under the M2 zoning if it was sold to another company in the future. Krekic noted the general industrial zone allows for more activity than light industry. In its submission to council, Quickload Logistics noted the site is buffered from the highway and the “residential neighbours to the north have a substantial green barrier separation providing a highly effective visual and sound screen”.

Cocaine trafficking charges laid By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - A Prince Rupert man is facing two charges of trafficking cocaine following the conclusion of a three month joint RCMP investigation. Philip Nguyen, 33, was arrested following an investigation that included resources from the RCMP Federal Serious and Organized Crime

units in Prince Rupert and Prince George, as well as the Prince Rupert RCMP. Over the course of the criminal investigation, police seized several thousand dollars in cash, a vehicle and six ounces of cocaine. Insp. Brian Gateley of RCMP Federal Serious and Organized Crime said the arrest is one sign of the work the RCMP is doing in the region.

It makes you appreciate all of their experienc-

es and all of your own. It’s an eye-opener.” Seven hundred and fifty printed copies will be distributed for free to North Coast Literacy, multicultural groups, schools, the Prince Rupert Library, the City of Prince Rupert, the District of Port Edward, the Chamber of Commerce, the Port of Prince Rupert and First Nations.

In Memoriam

In Loving Memory of

Ric Greenslade March 20, 1947 to April 5, 2005

Those we love don’t go away, They walk beside us Everyday. Unseen, unheard, but always near. Still loved, still missed...

We love and miss you always.


Keith Holmberg Passed away March 7, 2015.

Keith worked for Eurocan Pulp and Paper for 26 years. Their family made many great friends and lasting memories when they lived in Kitimat. Keith will be sadly missed by Jackie, his wife of 35 years, sister Gail (Ken) Mckenzie, sister-in-law Elaine Holmberg, two stepdaughters, nine stepgrandchildren, four stepgreat-grandchildren, seven nieces and nephews, cousins and his uncle. His funeral service was held March 14, 2015. Donations in Keith’s memory can be made to Palliative Care, Box 400 Virden, Manitoba R0M 2C0. We will especially miss his sense of humour, strength and soft heart.

Dorothy (Dee) Barton We are so proud of our mum, Dorothy Elizabeth (Dee) Barton, and all she accomplished in her life. Born in Calgary on January 4, 1929, she was raised on her parents’ orchard in Creston, B.C. There, she nurtured a love of gardening and orchard-keeping—notwithstanding the disagreements she had with her dad about how high she should climb on the fruit-picking ladder – and how hard she always fell. Mum always had a keen sense of adventure. In 1955, she and dad (Stan Barton) drove from Trail to Kitimat, travelling as a convoy with dad’s work crew, heavy equipment, trucks and trailers. Early into the journey, they unloaded one of their Caterpillar tractors to pull their own, and other vehicles, through the door-deep mud of Highway 16 West. Upon arrival in Kitimat (by train from Terrace), mum and dad took up temporary residence in a very basic plywood shack in Alcan’s construction camp (now Riverlodge): over time, they built a succession of new homes, schools and commercial buildings. Later, they did similar work in Kemano (the site of Alcan’s power station). In early 1960, they moved their operations to nearby Terrace. Once settled, mum and dad continued their construction activities, which by now included the manufacture and erection of pre-fabricated homes. Their companies were Barton Construction, Sav-Mor Builders Centre and Nor-Pine Homes. Mum was in charge of sales and also wore many other hats, both in the business and out. She taught secretarial skills at the vocational school in Terrace (now Northwest Community College) and worked with new immigrants on their English language abilities. We fondly remember lively gatherings with them at our house in Terrace Winter family trips to Hawaii were a highlight. Our parents moved to Sidney on Vancouver Island in 1975. After dad died in 1984, mum continued to design and build homes in Victoria. Always very social and wanting to learn, she graduated from the University of Victoria with a degree in sociology at age 70. In 1997, she designed and daughter, Betty and her construction crew, built yet another new home in Victoria: from there, mum operated a successful B&B for 12 years. She made all her own jams and wines, prepared spectacular breakfasts, researched all of Victoria’s tea houses, and kept up with the various happenings around town to best advise her B&B guests. In fact, “Dee’s B&B” was touted on the Israeli Tourism web site as, “…the only place to stay when you are in Victoria”. Mum loved sailing in the Gulf Islands with friends, and later, with son Doug and family. She was an avid hiker and angler. A long-standing Sunday tradition of mum’s at our cabin on Lakelse Lake near Terrace was taking the boat and fishing rod out to catch a breakfast of trout to complement dad’s famous crepes. Mum was an expert pie-maker, particularly known for her blackberry/apple pies from her own apple trees, and blackberries picked personally along the golf course path across from her house in Saanich. She frequently did flower arrangements for her church, neighbours and friends; volunteered for many years as an ESL instructor at UVic, and was active in her neighbourhood association. In recent times, she served as secretary at her Abbeyfield home monthly member meetings. Mum selflessly died on February 25, 2015 with her daughter, Susan (who had battled with terminal Multiple Systems Atrophy for a number of years) in Victoria. Mum is survived by her loving son, Doug McClary (Denise); enthusiastic, smart grandsons Stephen (Alexa), Paul (Emily); Mark and Andrew, and devoted daughter, Betty Barton (Grant Piffer).

In Memoriam

Love, Your Family

Olive Arleigh Slanina (nee Fitzgerald) December 27, 1936 - April 6, 2010

“Live, Laugh, Love. Everyday.” Loved and missed dearly Paul, Simon, Veronica, Rachel, Carrie and families.



JanetteneeCamazzola Lawson April 23, 1925 - March 28, 2015

On the morning of Saturday, March 28, 2015, Janette passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family. Janette was predeceased by her sister Nina, and is survived by her brother Jack (Elizabeth), niece Jane, nephew Andrew, sons Simon (Geordine), and Tracy (Jennifer), her grandchildren Kylah (Jon), Tyler (Rebecca), Jaclyn (Stefan), Steven (Kianna), and Sydney, and her great grandchildren, Serena, Ava, Kiera, Zoe, and Nara. Janette was born in Forth, Scotland and attended the University of Edinburgh. With a teaching degree in hand, Janette spent time in Greece, London, and the Persian Gulf applying her skills. Janette arrived in Canada in 1958, taught in Victoria for three years, then moved north to Kitimat for what was planned to be a two year stay. Janette spent the next 55 years in Kitimat teaching, raising her family, and travelling the world. Always a teacher at heart, Janette continued her passion for two more decades after officially retiring from Kitimat School District in 1988. She taught and trained both students and tutors of adult literacy, and these were her most rewarding years. Janette’s family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the staff at Mountainview Lodge, for their compassionate care over the past three years as well as Dr. Mills, Dr. Lombard, Dr. Van Der Merwe, KGH Staff, her physiotherapists and the Home Care Support care aids and nurses. A celebration of Janette’s life will take place Saturday, April 11th, 2015 at 1 pm at Kitimat First Baptist Church. Everyone is welcome. In lieu of flowers, donations in Janette’s memory can be made to Mountainview Lodge or Kitimat Hospital Auxiliary.

SPORTS River Kings snag silver The Northern Connector

Friday, April 3, 2015 /bc_north




FORT NELSON - They needed one more comeback. But after a thrilling week of hockey that saw the Terrace River Kings come from behind to win all three round robin games to gain a bye to the Coy Cup championship final Saturday, March 28, the team didn’t get it, losing 6-1 to the Fort St. John Flyers in Fort Nelson to take silver at the AA senior men’s championship for the second year in a row. “I think that they watched us play all week and figured out what they had to do to win. They’re a good team, there’s no question about it,” said River Kings general manager Ray Hallock Sunday. “We beat them fair and square in the first game, and they just came out a little stronger,” he said, referencing the Kings’ 4-3 OT win against the AAA Flyers in game one of the tournament. River Kings captain Steve Cullis said the team went in expecting a close championship game, and for the most part, it was. At the end of the first period the Flyers were up 1-0, with the Kings tying it up in the second on the power play. But Fort St. John scored two late second period goals to make it 3-1 after 40 minutes, and managed to keep the momentum going in the third. “We kept it close ‘til late in the second, they got a power play goal and a bit of a break to make it 3-1 and then we still felt good about the game going into the third, but they got a quick one right at the start of the third and kind of just laid it up,” he said. “We gave them a couple of breaks and they capitalized and then we just couldn’t recover after that one at the start of the

North Coast wins…


The Terrace River Kings settled for silver – for the second year in a row – at the Coy Cup tournament. third,” he continued. Taking second place to the Flyers was a bittersweet end to a phenomenal season that saw the Kings win the league championship for the first time ever and a tournament that showcased a number of standout moments for the River Kings. “It’s the first time we’ve ever won our league, so that’s something that everyone on this team should be proud about,” said Cullis. “Obviously when you win three games and lose one, it’s a good week, we just lost the wrong one, for whatever reason it wasn’t our best game and that’s just the way it went,” said Cullis, of the tournament. Terrace’s Chapen Leblond “had a good week, Ben Re-

inbolt had a good week, and our goalie [Patrick Leal] had a good week to name a few, and then (goalie) Josh Murray had a great game in the finals even though we lost.” Game one against Fort St. John jumped back and forth before being forced into overtime where Chapen Leblond snuck one past the Flyers’ goalie to get the 4-3 win. And that OT moment must have sparked something in Leblond – game two against the Powell River Regals saw him score four goals in the second period to close the 3-0 deficit the Regals had gained in the first and ignite the Kings’ momentum towards a 7-4 win. Leblond was given the MVP in game two, and Riv-

er Kings general manager Ray Hallock said goaltender Patrick Leal “stood on his head” that game and was well-deserving of MVP in game three, a 5-3 win over the hometown Fort Nelson Yeti – another game that saw the Kings climb back from a 3-0 hole after the first. That win gave the team a bye into the championship, and a day of rest on Friday. But heading into the championship against the Flyers – who earned their spot with a 10-3 win over the Yeti in the semi-finals on Friday – the Kings knew they’d have a tough competitor. “I can’t say I’m not disappointed but I’m not disappointed in my guys or the level of play or their intensity,” said Hallock. “The reality is we still had the winning-est season in the history of the team. We only lost five games all year including in the league championships and the Coy Cup – we only lost one game in the Coy Cup, unfortunately it was the most important one.” And for the young team – there isn’t a player over 30 – there’s plenty of prime years left. “We’ve got a great team. You can’t expect them to be super in one year – you’ve got to build up over a few years,” said Hallock. “I can’t take anything away from these boys, I think they’ve done the city of Terrace proud. “This is the best bunch of guys that I’ve seen in a long time,” he said. “Nobody’s blaming everybody, everybody’s still teammates and friends, I’m sure that’ll continue into next year.” “This team will be good for as long as these guys want to keep playing,” said Cullis. “Hopefully we get another chance at it.” “Two years silver, three times lucky,” added Hallock.

First Best in the West filled with action

By Kevin Campbell


PRINCE RUPERT - On Sunday afternoon, the First Annual Best in the West – March Madness tournament, organized by Prince Rupert resident Judy Carlick-Pearson, wrapped up with two physical and high-calibre basketball games in the junior (under-17) and men’s division. For the teens, it was a matchup of Team Friendship House, coached by Charles Hays basketball skipper Mel Bishop, and Team Metlakatla, coached by Carlick-Pearson. Despite a third-quarter lead that Friendship House standouts Justin McChesney, Kolby Jones and Nick Campbell contributed to, the unbelievable shooting of junior MVP Kyler Reece and his 38 points for Metlakatla gave his team the comefrom-behind 60-57 win and the prize money of $500. For their efforts, Friendship House got $350 for second-place and Gitanyow claimed $150 for third in the four-team tourney. Aiyansh took fourth. The senior men’s tournament comprised of eight teams, the Wolves, Rainmakers, Terrace, the Thunder, the Silverbacks, Da Boys, the Punishers and the Bishops, taking the court in search of firstplace and the $1,000 prize money. After beating the Punishers, the Bishops lost their second match versus the Silverbacks in the double-elimination format and then reeled off three straight wins against Da Boys, the Wolves and Terrace to eliminate all three teams and gain entry to the championship final through the back door. And surprise, surprise, their foes in the final were the Silverbacks once again. This time though, the Bishops took it to their rivals and never lost the 14-point lead that the team retained after the first half, leading 34-20. Senior’s MVP Brody Bishop led the way with 30 points in the final for his team’s 67-54 win, claiming revenge and the championship in the process. Darcy Pearson notched 15 points of his own for the Bishops and the Silverbacks’ Elijah Calhoun and Rich Wolffe scored 11 each and Gage Ladareur had 10. Willie Edwards provided the crowd with some breakaway layup action on more than one occasion, earning applause for his sneaky efforts. The Silverbacks took home $700 for secondplace and Terrace grabbed $500 for third.

Heating efficiency increased at Terrace college campus TERRACE - Two new natural gas-fired boilers being installed at a cost of $1.5 million at Northwest Community College’s Terrace campus will make heating buildings more efficient and save money.

This investment in our infrastructure contributes to the long term viability of our campus,” said college official Kerry Clarke of the work. In addition to heat, the boilers provide hot water for the college. The money comes to the college from the provincial government which each year considers applications to improve facilities
