Germans sell terminal to Arab company By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - A company owned by the government of Dubai is set to purchase Fairview Terminal from Deutsche Bank for $580 million. DP World Ltd. announced Thursday its intention to purchase the Prince Rupert operations, with the transaction expected to be complete in the second half of this year. DP World CEO Mohammed Sharaf said Fairview Terminal has a number of attributes that made the prospect of purchasing the facility attractive to the company. “Fairview Container Terminal offers the fastest access for

vessels travelling between Asia and North America. The terminal also offers the highest productivity rates on the West Coast and an efficient rail link to the hinterland,” said Sharaf, noting further growth at the terminal is top of mind for the company with plans to conduct a feasibility study to grow the terminal to 2.45 million TEUs. “The longterm concession and the ability to build beyond the current Phase 2 of expansion presents a fantastic opportunity for DP World.” The Fairview Terminal is operated by New Jersey-based Maher Terminals which is itself owned by Deutsche Bank. And the terminal is on land owned by the Prince Rupert Port Authority, making the crown

agency the landlord for the terminal’s owner and opeator. DP World said some of the benefits to the province and the region include access to DP World’s “state-of-the-art supply chain securities and safety practices” and “world-class productivity enhancing best practices in container terminal development and operation”. “We are delighted to extend our global footprint with a second terminal in Canada. The value proposition is compelling and the addition of capacity to our portfolio will contribute to DP World’s continued growth and the delivery of shareholder value,” added DP World chairman Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem.

WILD

manager of corporate communications Michael Gurney said the deal to sell Fairview Terminal can only be seen as positive. “DP World is one of the world’s top three container terminal operators, and its move to acquire Fairview Container Terminal represents a positive step in the evolution of Prince Rupert’s port operations,” he said. “While the sale has still to be approved by Investment Canada, we can say that DP World’s commitment to Fairview expansion — and its reputation for excellence in operations — would sustain the terminal’s growing impact on economic activity regionally and on a broader scale.” The agreement is subject to Canadian regulatory approvals.

MP’s no tanker bill bid defeated but he vows to contine the fight By Cameron Orr

THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

CONTRIBUTED / THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

Skeena - Bulkley Valley NDP MP Nathan Cullen speaking on the floor of the House of Commons in Ottawa.

KITIMAT - MP Nathan Cullen’s attempt to pass legislation which would ban oil tankers off the north coast failed in a vote in the House of Commons last week. Cullen’s bill, C-628, had been crafted so as not to impact other marine traffic, for instance diesel shipments to remote communities, or on the proposed shipments of liquefied natural gas from North Coast ports such as Kitimat. Other parts of the bill sought to give greater weight by regulatory overseers to projects that add value to products — for instance oil refineries — and would also give communities a greater voice in pipeline reviews. Cullen said that he was disappointed but still resolved to fight oil export projects in B.C.’s northwest. “Even [representatives] from British Columbia didn’t see the value in voting with British Columbia and

against their leader,” he said. “This is after 10 month of work and a 10-year saga dealing with Enbridge Northern Gateway.” Even so, “There is nothing but resolve and conviction I’m feeling. I know supporters out in the northwest will be disappointed as well but the next place where this goes is to the ballot box in 2015 in the fall, when...Canadians’ go to the polls to choose the next government.”

On the arguments that this bill could be harmful to Canada’s economy, Cullen argues that not passing the bill could harm the economy by risking tourism and fisheries, and for the fact there would be no jobs in value-added processes. Cullen said he’s thankful for the support he had been given and will think of the next steps in the coming days. “We’ll collect our-

selves in the next few days, and then decide what the next stage is,” he said. “Again, this is going to be a live issue over the next six months in to the next federal election and beyond. There’s no way the conversation dies with this bill.” Cullen had attempted to rally support for his bill, a move that included touring coastal portions of B.C. He particularly asked Conservative MPs to join him.

Northern Savings Credit Union board seeking new CEO By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT -Northern Savings Credit Union is once again searching for a president and chief executive officer following the departure of Ken Doleman. The board of directors made the announcement of Doleman’s departure in mid-March, though no reason was given for Doleman no longer being a part of Northern Savings

Credit Union. “We are very, very thankful for the work Ken Doleman has done over the past two-and-ahalf years, but life goes and people move on to wherever destiny takes them,” said board chair Nirmal Parmar. “We have a very experienced, long-serving senior management team and business is proceeding as usual and going very smoothly.” The board has appointed senior vice-president and chief operations

“Business is proceeding as usual.” Nirmal Parmar officer Sharon Stromdahl as interim president and CEO. Before the search begins for a new CEO, Par-

mar said the board will be revisiting its strategic direction. “The financial market is a very competitive one, so we have to do strategic planning to ensure we are serving our customers in the best way we can,” he said, noting it is not related to the departure of Doleman. “Strategic planning is something we do as a board all the time to improve the service, our products and the training for our staff.” Doleman was appointed president and CEO in May 2012, tak-

ing over from then-acting president and CEO Bill Nicholls following the passing of long-time CEO Mike Tarr. Doleman arrived on the North Coast after spending 12 years as the CEO of Swan Valley Credit Union in Swan River, Manitoba. The change-over comes less than a month before planned membership meetings on April 8 in Masset, April 9 in Queen Charlotte, April 13 in Terrace and the Annual General Meeting scheduled for April 15 in Prince Rupert.

Liquor price changes small so far By Tom Fletcher

THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

VICTORIA - Some producers are raising prices slightly and others are offering short-term discounts as B.C.’s new liquor price wholesale model took effect Wednesday. Pre-tax retail price changes at B. C. government stores show little change for the the most popular brands of beer, hard liquor and other alcoholic beverages. Government store shoppers will see lower prices on the shelves, because as of April 1, government stores add provincial and federal sales tax at the cash register. Of the top 10 brands of

spirits, a 750 ml bottle of Crown Royal whiskey retails for $23.49, a two-cent increase, plus taxes. For the larger bottle of Crown Royal, government stores are reducing the price by $1.98 for the month of April. A six-pack of Lonetree cider goes up 90 cents to $9.59 as a discount price for March ends. For larger cans of imported Strongbow cider, an April sale price is reduced $1.14 to $17.99. For beer, a dozen Sleeman Honey Brown Lager increases six cents to $20.49. For private retailers, Saveon-Foods store in Surrey was the first to take advantage of

new regulations allowing sale of B.C. wines directly from grocery shelves. Supermarkets now have the option of including a liquor store with separate checkout for alcohol purchases. The government store retail price used to be the benchmark for B.C. sales, with discounts off that price to private liquor stores, agency and B.C. wine stores. Now all retailers pay the same wholesale price to the Liquor Distribution Branch, which retains its wholesale monopoly. The LDB wholesale markup is now 124 per cent of the supplier price for hard liquor, 73 per cent for coolers and ciders, 89 per cent for wine and

a per-litre tax with ascending rates for small, medium and large breweries. Justice Minister Suzanne Anton says the system is designed to create a level playing field for retailers, while maintaining the government’s revenue of $1 billion a year from the wholesale markup. Many government liquor stores have added refrigerators and Sunday opening hours, to make up for the loss of their wholesale discount compared to what private stores were paying. Of 196 government liquor stores, 169 have extended their operating hours, and 153 are to be open on Good Friday.

Earth Hour a flicker of its former self By Cameron Orr THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

KITIMAT - Kitimat reduced its electricity use by 1.5 per cent for Earth Hour on March 28. An annual promotion to get people to cut out their power saw a poor performance this year in general in B.C., with the province as a

whole reducing their power use by just .2 per cent, an all-time low since the program began in B.C. in 2008. Earth Hour is an annual global event hosted by the WWF where people around the world are encouraged to turn off unnecessary lights and electronics for one hour,

says BC Hydro. It started as a one-city initiative in Sydney, Australia in 2007. The best year of savings was actually 2008 when the province reduced its power load by two per cent. It dropped to 1.1 per cent in 2009, and further to 1.04 per cent in 2010.

In 2011 it went back up to 1.8 per cent, then to 1.67 in 2012. In 2013 it spiked up again to 1.95 per cent, then followed by just one per cent last year. Whistler led the way for power reduction this year, dropping their electricity load 7.2 per cent. Invermere fol-

Cullen shares concerns on C-51 KITIMAT - Bill C-51, Canada’s proposed anti-terrorism bill, should be worrying to all groups, including ones like Kitimat’s Douglas Channel Watch (DCW), according to MP Nathan Cullen.

Phone scammer strikes again

Miss Teen Northern BC …

By Margaret Speirs

THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

TERRACE - Terrace RCMP officers stepped in last week after a person provided her credit card information and remote access to her computer to a telephone scammer claiming to offer services to remove a virus. Police said they spoke with

the woman and directed her to a local computer technician to wipe her computer. Law enforcement officers and computer industry officials routinely warn people against providing any kind credit card or other personal information to people over the phone. And they tell people to delete any email that is unfamiliar, es-

pecially email with attachments. Those attachments should not be opened as they may contain a virus. The growing use of sophisticated scams made possible by the Internet have resulted in more and more people putting themselves at the risk of either being defrauded or having their identities stolen.

Not hearing clearly when many people are talking? Many people find that they are no longer able to understand everything, particularly when in the company of others. Engineered in Switzerland, System Audéo V has been designed specifically to understand in group situations.

The majority of those surveyed stated that when exposed to considerable background noise they are able to hear that something is being spoken, but can no longer discern precisely what is being said. The words seem blurred and indistinct. But why is that? The effect tends to manifest itself in company, or in the restaurant. It is the high-pitched tones perceived at the entrance to the cochlea that are decisive when it comes to hearing things accurately. In the majority of cases these parts of the inner ear are the first to be affected by noise or aging. As the high-pitched tones are no longer perceived well, the auditory center of the brain begins to struggle to decode language. It’s a bit like an image that doesn’t have enough pixels.

Hearing sensation! Swiss researchers: Audéo V is superior for conversation.

With Audéo V

The new Audéo V devices ensure considerably clearer reproduction of spoken language in company.

New hearing chip developed Swiss audiologists have developed a new hearing chip that is designed to restore speech comprehension, particularly with hearing loss in the high-frequency range. People can test the new Audéo V system by Phonak simply by calling now to do so. The test phase in particular is designed to clarify how speech comprehension can be improved in various situations and what role a new technology called “Autosense OS” plays. The chip recognizes where the person being spoken to

is located and amplifies only his or her voice, while ambient noise is lowered and the optimum hearing programs are seamlessly adjusted. Thanks to several synchronous microphones, the hearing system can detect sound in all directions and select the direction that speech is coming from within milliseconds. According to Swiss researchers, this significantly augments speech comprehension, especially in conversation. Interested people can register for a no-obligation demonstration of the Audéo V by calling 888.408.7377

City, residents seek out vision for former baseball diamond

By Martina Perry THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - Discussions on the revitalization of a rundown park on McKay Street and Kootenay Avenue started last week. The site, owned by the City of Prince Rupert, is located adjacent to BC Housing developments Harbour View Gardens and Kootenay Place and contains a neglected, overgrown baseball field, a small asphalt pad with a basketball hoop, as well as the Kaien AntiPoverty Society (KAPS) community garden. Prince Rupert Mayor Lee Brain facilitated an informal conversation on the restoration of the park last week, using Transition Prince Rupert’s Local Food and Garden Series as a forum to gather input. More than 35 people were in attendance, providing suggestions on potential uses for the property that included adding greenhouses and additional gardens, having a natural play space for children, creating a soccer field or restoring the former baseball field, improving the basketball court, adding an amphitheatre or fire pit, and more. While a committee including representatives from the city, Transition Prince Rupert, KAPS, the Salmonberry Trading Company Society, the Prince Rupert Ministerial Association, Salvation Army has already formed to oversee the project, the hope is that volunteers from the area will step up and take over the initiative. Brain stated a project coordinator would be hired for a short-term duration to lead work, but it would be volunteers carrying it out. “The intention here is that we want to build a community team ... we want to do this together and for the neighbourhood to be part of the designing and process. We want the neighbourhood to feel this is their project,” he said. Because the city doesn’t currently have the capacity to maintain the site, it plans to sell the property to a community group for one dollar, which would take over liability and look after it until the city is in a position to do so. With this in mind, the park will be designed to be easily maintained. Coun. Barry Cunningham attended the event and said an important factor in planning for the project is talking to those residing near the park to determine

what they would like to see it used for. “They’re probably not well-represented here,” said Cunningham, noting there are lots of children living in the area. “The whole thing should have a kid theme.” Colleen Hermanson of KAPS, who was also at the event, said based on the society’s experiences getting the neighbourhood’s children involved shouldn’t be an issue, but said it has been more difficult engaging adults. The next step of the plans will be speaking to those residing near the property in a door-to-door campaign and undertaking a survey to get feedback. Then, funding to hire a designer will be secured, with Brain stating the Prince Rupert Port Authority has already expressed interest. “The port is very interested in helping to fund this particular piece. The city is also looking at an alternative funding source,” he explained, noting there is money in Prince Rupert Legacy being set aside for city initiatives like this. Once a draft design is complete, it will be brought forward for feedback. Brain said the goal is to start the project this summer.

Border protest held by Stewart, Hyder By Anna Killen

THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

STEWART - Residents of both Stewart and Hyder were out with signs early in the morning of April 1, protesting overnight closures of the border between their communities which began at 12:01 a.m. that day. “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we are one community in two countries,” said Hyder resident Caroline Simpson-Stewart. “It’s sad. What is being done to the people of Stewart and Hyder as a ‘cost cutting’ measure is wrong on so many levels, and thus far none of the customs people are being laid off, none of their hours are being cut, there were three people on duty all night – it reeks of wrong.” The move to reduce the hours at the border and close the crossing between midnight and 8 a.m. – what some have described as a costcutting measure by the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) – has been met with fierce opposition and criticism from residents, businesses, and politicians on both sides of the border. But despite the outcry, the closure went ahead. The gate doesn’t look like much – but Simpson-Stewart said there are cameras focussed on the crossing and she wouldn’t risk going across when it’s shut. Opponents of the reduced hours tout ecomomic and safety concerns – Hyder relies on Stewart’s health care centre and the road is the only evacuation route. CBSA says it has procedures in place, which have been signed off on by local emergency services providers, to mitigate safety concerns and allow emergency access. That includes a 24hour phone at the gate residents can use to call to have the gate opened in the event of a medical emergency. CBSA confirmed a medical emergency could be something like a broken arm that needs urgent medical attention. CBSA also said it is consulting with businesses. Rick Kasum, the operating manager for mining company Ascot

Resources in Stewart, B.C., still hopes a common-sense combination of real safety concerns and economics will prevail – or at least get the CBSA to tweak the hours so they work for his company, the work site of which is only accessible by travelling through Hyder to British Columbia territory on the other side. “The way they’re opening up and shutting the hours is really going to hurt us,” he said. “The hours of operation aren’t going to work for us, we work 24/7 right? I need the hours changed.” He also needs to know that his workers can get across the border if one of them gets hurt – and assurances from CBSA that a phone call to nearby Beaver Creek for a code to unlock the gate aren’t enough, he

It’s

said, noting that the satellite phones used on site aren’t reliable. He’s baffled that his company wasn’t consulted before the changes were announced. “They walked in and notified the town with 30 days, never talked to any businesses, no people, and just dropped a bomb on the town basically,” he said. “If they had taken things into consideration, which they obviously have not, they might not have even made this decision. But no, they came, they made their decision based on February numbers which are nothing compared to July numbers,” said SimpsonStewart. Federal minister for public safety Stephen Blaney has not commented nor intervened in the closure.

SYLVIA ALDERTON / THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

Residents of Stewart and Hyder were out early in the morning of April 1to protest a decision by the federal government to close the border post between the two communities from midnight until 8 a.m. Federal safety minister Steven Blaney has not been answering questions about the closure.

Charles Hays grads hosting variety show bcclassified.com By Jeremy Angus

THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - Graduating students from Charles Hays Secondary School will showcase their many talents while also raising money for their upcoming commencement ceremony during the Grad Variety Show on Friday. Approximately 45 students will be taking the stage during the performance, singing, dancing and acting in a number of skits. All of the skits were written by students, including the traditional sketch poking fun at high school teachers and “Freshmen”, a Friends-parody written by Grade 12 student Hannah Komadina. “The goal is to make people laugh,” said Celina Repole, a graduating student. After the absence of the Grad Fashion Show last year, students decided to take charge and revitalize the fundraising performance. “We really wanted to bring it back because we’ve seen in the past how fun it’s been and funny it was to watch,” said Quinn Basso, a Grade 12 CHSS student.

“It’s another way where we can hang out again and just have a good time before we leave for school,” added classmate Tammy Vu. CHSS instructors Aja Lihou and Laila Leach have overseen the show’s organization, but said students took command since planning began in November. Both Leach and Lihou said they’ve enjoyed working with grads. “The Grad Variety Show gives students the opportunity to showcase their talents and great sense of humour. We have a lot of artistic and inventive students and this is a great venue for them to showcase their gifts,” said Leach. “I’ve seen it many times as an adult and I still find it hilarious and entertaining,” added Lihou. For this year’s show, students decided to switch from the long-standing fashion show theme to something that was more open to all. “I felt like it was better to do a variety show because then there was more of a possibility for [bringing in more grads]; people that don’t necessarily

want to do a fashion show, they can do other things like singing,” explained Repole. There will still be a fashion element to the performance, with students modeling clothing made by their classmate

Justina Vendittelli. The Grad Variety Show takes place at the Lester Centre on April 10 at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Cook’s Jewellers or at the door. ~ With files from Martina

New sonar gear to help searchers

Classics help Hope Air …

By Margaret Speirs

THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

CONTRIBUTED / THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

TERRACE - The Terrace Classics Hockey Club has made a $1,000 contribution to Hope Air operated through Hawkair, a service which assists those in need of medical care. From the left are Dave Scott, Rodney Kuehne, Liz Smaha from Hawkair, Richard Lindstrom and Todd Broughton. The Classics for years have mounted a series of successful Christmas parties at the arena, providing it with the financial means to make donations to worthwhile causes.

TERRACE - Terrace Search and Rescue is looking for public support to help buy a sonar to help searchers find people lost deep down in lakes and other bodies of water. In particular, rescuers want to continue to look for Jodi Frocklage, who went missing on Kalum Lake when she went out boating alone December 21, 2014 and didn’t return home. For a more extensive search, search and rescue needs specialty equipment that can search down to depths of 400 feet, he said. “The appeal to the public is for people with fundraising experience to help us out,” said Sheppard. Search and rescue can use its own non-profit funds to purchase the $44,000 Sea Scan Arc Explorer Sonar, which can search to these depths and deeper. But the organization also needs a SeaBotix Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) for recovery at these depths and is looking for the public to help with raising the $93,000 cost of the ROV. Sheppard asks anyone who would like to assist with fundraising or who would like to donate to contact him.

By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - The president and CEO of BC Ferries said the company is doing everything it can to keep fares low, but acknowledges there is more work to do. During a visit to Prince Rupert last week for staff meetings, Mike Corrigan outlined substantial savings BC Ferries achieved that helped spur on the recent decision to keep fare increases capped at 1.9 per cent over the next five years. “We will be able to find $84 million in savings through Performance Term 3 ... it’s one of the big reasons we are able to keep the fare increases down to inflation going into Performance Term 4,” he said, pointing to a 50 per cent reduction in executive compensation since 2009 and a $5 million per year reduction in administration costs since 2008. “We know that for a lot of people that is not enough, that they would like to see the fares reduced or frozen. But from our perspective when we look at the $3 billion capital program we have on the books to replace the ships and the terminals and keep the safety and liability up, coupled with the fact that we’re running one of the most complex ferry systems in the world here in B.C., we think it’s a pretty strong win to be able to deliver inflation-

ary fare increases over the next four years.” As well as looking at the reductions in administration, Corrigan said the decision by BC Ferries Commissioner Gord Macatee shows the importance of the various services offered aboard the fleet. “We have heard things like ‘Why does BC Ferries have a vacation centre?’ and ‘Why does BC Ferries have food and retail services?’. We have heard on social media and bloggers people asking why we don’t just shut all those down and pass the savings on to the customers,” he said. “What the commissioner was able to prove is that the exact opposite would happen. Fares would go up. Our commercial services division is expected to grow to $8.7 million next year ... BC Ferries vacations does about $4 million in revenue and contributes about $1 million to the bottom line to keep fares low. That is in addition to attracting people to the north. Food and retail is another area people have suggested we shut down, but in fact it will contribute about $50 million to keeping fares down.” As for the years ahead, Corrigan said there will be no cuts to service during the next performance term. While the collective agreement with the union is expiring in October, the CEO said he doesn’t foresee any problems

SPRING 4 FOR 3 March 23 - April 25, 2015

Ferries CEO talks fares, ridership

reaching a new deal. “One of the things that has happened ... is that we have to go to binding arbitration now. If we can’t agree upon terms we go to a panel of three and get a final solution. What is off the table now is the labour interruptions of the past, which is a good thing,” he said. “We have had some preliminary discussions with the union, but the challenge we have is we are in the middle of elections for new union leadership that won’t be finalized until the end of June. Once that is done we will sit down with the new leaders and talk about the longer term.” Corrigan’s visit comes as passenger traffic on the Inside Passage is up more than 10 per cent, but the number of people sailing to Haida Gwaii is down more than seven per cent compared to the previous year. While he said people adjusting to the schedule may help reverse the trend, the biggest issue could be one of perception. “I personally think we need to change the discussion around northern ferry service. It’s OK for ferry advisory committees and community leaders and BC Ferries and government to get in a room and try to hammer out more service, but when we keep talking about it publicly and in the media and on the Internet it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, from my perspective,” he said.

HEMP FACTS: • Since Prohibition pot use has gone from 1/2% (.5) of the population to current levels. On the other hand after 50 years of education tobacco use has dropped from 70% of adults using in early 1960s to present use of 17% of adults smoking. Prohibition still doesn’t WORK.

• Industrial Hemp could be grown in the NASS VALLEY supplying an O.S.B. Strand Board Mill and providing high paying agriculture & mill jobs.

• High paying pulp mill jobs in Kitimat and Prince Rupert would still exist if industrial Hemp was grown on their doorsteps. Lost logging jobs would of evolved into industrial agriculture jobs.

Rainmakers put to the test in preseason By Kevin Campbell THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - It’s almost a whole new look for the Charles Hays girls’ soccer team for 2015. Gone are the graduated strikers, midfielders and rock-solid defencemen who made last year’s team a consistent threat around the region, though, there are some returning veterans who will guide the rather large crop of Grade 9s and 10s on the team. They include strikers Tanveen Sahdra and Katerina Samaras, who were a pair up front for the Rainmakers against Terrace’s Caledonia Secondary (Cal) in a preseason tuneup held last Friday at noon, and goalie Harjyot Sidhu, who suited up in net for Charles Hays. It was the first time the ‘Makers, who have been practicing since February, played as a cohesive team for the year. “We lost a lot of players last year. Most of them were Grade 12s, so we lost our strong front line of midfielders, so there’s kind of new dynamics ... I think we have five returning players, so we’re developing, learning,” said head coach Kyla Ragan. Ragan wasn’t as fortunate with the number of substitutions as was Cal’s bench boss, however. Caledonia could field a whole other team with the number of spares (11) that they brought along Highway 16, while Ragan had one sub during the Good Friday showdown. Midfielders Emily Cavin and Suttira Johansen provided support on the offensive and defensive side

KEVIN CAMPBELL / THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

Harjyot Sidhu makes a diving stop against the Caledonia Kermodes last Friday afternoon. The Kermodes won 6-0. of the ball and helped the rest of the team with positional play, which was a focus for the younger squad while they find their bearings in competitive play. “They worked hard; they pushed themselves,” said the coach after the match. “We were missing half our team so we had no subs, so they

tried their best and worked hard. We’ll work on our positions and see what happens for our play day next weekend.” The Rainmakers fell 6-0 to Cal, but for the first half, and the first 10 minutes of the second, the ‘Makers matched the Kermodes’ efforts before the Rupert team ran out of steam, while Caledonia fielded sub-

stitutions the rest of the way. After some early pressure by Cal, the Kermodes went up 1-0 when miscommunication between Charles Hays’ defenceman and goalie led to a chance for Terrace and they buried it in the 23rd minute. That would be how the first half ended, but sustained pressure from

Cal led to an outburst of chances for the visiting side 15 minutes into the second half. A Kermodes’ corner kick connected to a forward 16 yards out and the striker slid it smoothly along the ground it for Terrace for the 2-0 lead. A great flurry of saves by Sidhu wasn’t enough to stop a fourth consecutive shot on one play in close, as a right-field ball-in found a Kermode inside the box. She was stopped by Sidhu three times before she buried a fourth opportunity for the 3-0 advantage three minutes after Cal’s second marker. Three more tallies late in the match gave Terrace the preseason victory and sweeper Medalana Jardim got the Rainmakers out of trouble a few times as well. It was a good measuring stick for Ragan to see where her new players’ strong points were and which positions and situations they thrived in. “We have another two strikers who will also be playing up front, so Tanveen’s strong in midfield as well, so we can play her back there. [Sahdra and Samaras] talk to each other. They’ve played well with each other for the last two years, so they’re used to [playing forward] by now,” said the coach. This Saturday, the ‘Makers host a play day when Cal and Kitimat’s Mount Elizabeth Secondary School come to town. So far, the schedule is set up with Charles Hays and Caledonia hooking up again at 10 a.m., Kitimat playing Terrace at 1 p.m. and Rupert finishing the day with a match against Kitimat at 3 p.m.

Round ‘em up…

CONTRIBUTED / THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

TERRACE - A 13-year tradition, a number of Terrace youth soccer players learned foundational skills with coach Nick Kollias over spring break at the Caledonia Secondary School gym – and helped raise money for scholarships for graduates of Caledonia and Centennial Christian School. Over the years over $25,000 has been given away. “Every year it goes more and more,” said Kollias, in describing the success of the camp.
