TERRACE - Amber Armstrong, manager client services interior and north region for WorkSafe BC, left, and Francoise Godet, representing Skeena-Bulkley Valley NDP MP Nathan Cullen gave speeches to the small group of people who turned out at the Day of Mourning on arena hill April 28. In B.C. workplaces last year, 173 workers died, said Armstrong, adding that 98 died of occupational disease and 77 from asbestos exposure, many from exposure decades earlier. Traumatic injuries from workplace incidents took 50 lives and four young workers under age 25 lost their lives last year. Godet said monitoring of labour and safety standards has been cut back or replaced by voluntary compliance which isn’t enough.

KITIMAT - Hope that mediation could sort out the differences between the District of Kitimat and Unifor 2300 has been dashed with both sides posting publicly that agreements couldn’t be made. Don’t hold your breath to know what happened behind those doors during mediation though, the rules of the process forbid either side from disclosing what took place, meaning both the District and the union are mum on the specifics. Mediation had initially been set for May 1 due to scheduling limits from the mediator but the

bargainers were told they could go to Vancouver if they wanted to start it up sooner. “Over the past weekend negotiating parties worked very hard and spent many hours in mediation. “Some progress was made; however, the sides were unable to bridge the gap between language and money,” is the only statement the District of Kitimat says they can release on the matter after the mediation attempt ended.. The union also revealed the failure of mediation in a letter posted via their Facebook page. “Unfortunately it became apparent that instead of moving in a direction that would see the parties resolve the outstanding is-
sues left at the bargaining table we were going in a direction that would see us going backwards, so on the evening of Monday, April 20, 2015 mediation came to an end,” reads the letter posted to social media. Both sides remained silent as far as further comment when asked by The Northern Sentinel, the sister newspaper to The Norhern Connector. Meanwhile the union did say they have an offer from Unifor 2301 in Kitimat to offer essentially one hour of pay per member per month up to two months after a contract gets resolved. Local 2301 does have to vote on that endorsement at their next meeting.

Local 2300 meanwhile has also launched an online petition for people to sign which reads “In the spirit of good faith bargaining I support the Municipal workers and the District of Kitimat bargaining the outstanding items only to reach a fair Collective Agreement.” A link to the petition is on Unifor 2300’s Facebook page. The lengthy strike has featured statements from the union that it wishes to end a poisonous atmoshere in the Kitimat municipal workplace. Meanwhile the district has been saying that its wage offer would make union members among the best paid municipal workers in the province.

TERRACE - Council will be rewriting and submitting a letter to the provincial health ministry to request that a rehabilitation facility for addicted youth be brought back to the northwest. According to local resident and advocate Adrienne Goodrich who was at council with a group of fellow advocates, the problem of youth addiction to hard drugs is a disproportionally bad problem in the area. The removal of the Atlas Youth Centre run by Terrace and District Community Services Society and financed by the province up until 2009 was a terrible blow and Goodrich wants council to again advocate for the return of such
a facility. “Since the closure of Atlas Youth Treatment Centre in 2009, our region has been without a residential addictions treatment for the community’s most precious and vulnerable members,” said Goodrich, adding that the counselling that is available is insufficient. Youth are sent to Prince George if they are in need of detox. “Prince George is pretty big. For someone to come from a small community to Prince George, the treatment centre is in the middle of town, there is culture shock and there is a lot for them to overcome to stay on a successful path,” she continued. Councillor Stacey Tyers recommended that the letter ask for a detox centre as a start.

Rupert mayor tells the feds his city’s ready to manage LNG PRINCE RUPERT - From the chambers of City Hall to the halls of Parliament, Prince Rupert Mayor Lee Brain is working to ensure leaders at all levels of government buy-in to council’s LNG Go Plan. Brain and city manager Robert Long spent four days in Ottawa last week to speak with various officials about the plan, which will be released in draft form in the coming weeks, and seek support for Prince Rupert’s plan to manage the growth related to the liquefied natural gas industry. “We went there because Prince Rupert is becoming Canada’s trade gateway,” he said. “With the expansion of the container terminal we are really beginning to see that manifest. Now that we have decisions around LNG coming as early as this June, we’re basically look-
ing for partners with our LNG Go Plan ... a lot of the policies the government has been passing are for the expansion of the resource economy and we wanted to make them more aware that we are the end of the line for that so we need an extra layer of focus and attention if we are going to be successful with LNG,” he said. “It was really productive and got everyone realizing there is a sense of urgency for our region, not just Prince Rupert but for the Kitimat and Terrace area as well. Our area really needs some laser focused attention. It was a really productive and meaningful interaction with a number of ministries.” Among the meetings the two took in were a discussion with Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification Michelle Rempel and meetings with senior policy advisors in the ministries of industry, natural resources, fisheries and oceans, social devel-
opment and infrastructure. While seeking support, Brain said he encouraged the officials to look to Prince Rupert as an example of how to handle growth in communities across the country. “Our main message to them was that we want to be the model for how to handle rapid growth because, unfortunately, no community in the world has really done this right. “There is a lot of issues that happen on the ground without proper planning and no community has been able to handle proper growth,” he said, noting city leaders will be meeting with the District of Kitimat to discuss their plans for growth. “We feel we can be the model so all residents are taken care of, housing and social issues are taken care of and environmental needs are taken care of and that those things are thought out and planned out before there is a major influx.”
VICTORIA - The province says it’s providing $6.1 million for 1,429 additional critical-trades seats in 14 public post-secondary institutions, including Norhwest Community College, throughout the province to reduce waitlists by an average of 44% for students entering trades that are in demand
by a range of industries. “These critical-trades seats match training with jobs in demand,” said provincial Advanced Education Minister Andrew Wilkinson. The shift in education and training to align with jobs in demand benefits students, employ-
ers and the provincial economy.” Northwest Community College is to get $729,120 for a number of training seats – 166 when all is taken into account. These seats will be in welding, two levels of electrical training, plumbing and three levels of professional cook training.

Prince Rupert city council opposing cuts to NWCC courses By Martina Perry THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
PRINCE RUPERT - Prince Rupert city council has expressed its disapproval of Northwest Community College (NWCC) decreasing academic courses at its Prince Rupert campus. A release put out in April by the Northwest Community College Students’ Union indicated college officials were proposing to cut up to 40 university cours-
es throughout northern campuses, including 15 in Prince Rupert, due to declining enrolment in academic programs throughout the region. Coun. Gurvinder Randhawa highlighted his concerns during a council meeting earlier this month. “We should keep those courses here. It’s really important, especially now that we’re expecting growth in our community,” he said. “We need to keep those jobs
and those courses here.” Coun. Joy Thorkelson said removing academic courses offered at Prince Rupert’s campus would impact a significant number of students currently enrolled at the school or those planning to attend in the coming years. “Otherwise it becomes only the people that can afford to live out of town who are going to get an education. I think that’s totally unfair,” she said.
Thorkelson noted the land that NWCC’s Prince Rupert campus sits on was “basically donated” by the city and is solely for the use of an educational facility. “There should be a college on that land and not a half college or quarter college ... our children in this community are entitled to a secondary education [and not just for trades]. We want children to come back to this community who turn out to be the doc-
tors, lawyers and engineers,” she said. The City of Prince Rupert will send a letter stating its opposition to the proposed cuts to NWCC and the appropriate provincial minister. College communications director Sarah Zimmerman said no decisions have been made but that the college needs to respond to budget pressures and lower enrolments specifically in its academic programs.

Relay for Life June 13 By Cameron Orr
THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
KITIMAT - Kitimat’s Relay for Life is already sprinting to go-time, which is set for June 13 at 11 a.m. One of the committee’s lead organizers Michel Voyer says there are a number of events planned in the lead up to the main day. For the main day itself, the event runs from 11 a.m. with the traditional survivors’ lap and ending at 11 p.m. that night. Voyer notes that the Kitimat Bull-O-Rama is scheduled for that same day, but not until 7 p.m. and doesn’t see any major conflicts between the two. This year’s theme is “Carnival for the Cure” and participants are encouraged to wear their best carnival costumes for the event.
So far Voyer says there are 14 teams signed up and teams technically have until the end of May to sign up although he said they will likely make some space for people who can gather five people after that. Teams can be up to 15 people. Beyond the laps there are plans for zoomba lessons and belly dancing demonstrations, along with kids activities and live music, of which they already have a few bands lined up. Organizers this year will certainly be set on beating last year’s total which came in at around $120,000. Voyer said the committee is good for volunteers for the planning but there is always room for day-of volunteers. Information on volunteering, and on team registration, can be emailed to kitimatrelay@
bc.cancer.ca. There are early-bird draws for teams who have pre-registered so be sure to sign up quickly for a chance for prizes. In the lead up to June 13 he said there is an open mic night planned for the PF Pizzeria and Bistro, and last Sunday there was a talent show held at Mount Elizabeth Theatre which was a Relay fundraiser. People can also go online for information at relayforlife.ca/kitimat.

Scientist doubts LNG boom talk By Josh Massey
THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
TERRACE – “They’re going to put a bullseye on my picture down in Victoria,” says David Hughes as he leaves the interview room to continue on an eight-stop tour of northern B.C. to cast doubts on the promise of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) economic boom for the region. An independent geo consultant with 35 years experience at the Geological Survey of Canada, Hughes has been a consistent voice of caution during the province’s gallop towards an industry being promoted by the provincial government. His 2013 report Drill Baby Drill warned the U.S. about its overestimation of new oil and gas reserves made accessible from modern drilling techniques and now a study of Canadian reserves with similar conclusions, BC LNG Reality Check, is to be published by the Canada Centre For Policy Alternatives in May. Hughes thinks the amount of natural gas available in major reserves in northeastern B.C. and the ability of companies to extract it is greatly overestimated by the Christy Clark government and the companies pitching their multibillion dollar projects. The information Hughes uses to argue his case comes from the federal National Energy Board (NEB) and the province’s B.C. Oil and
Gas Commission’s own calculations and projections. The first target for Hughes are the 18 liquefaction facilities proposed on the coast, 12 of which already have export licences. He doubts they are even possible given the huge amount of production that would lead to and the reality of demand. “Adding them up comes to 60 million tonnes more than the entire world trade of LNG,” says Hughes. Just supplying one or two facilities would require a dramatic drilling increase beyond the midrange expectations of the National Energy Board, he continued. Hughes says it’s likely Canada would become a net importer of natural gas to feed those facilities. “Basically we have to ramp up gas production way more than the NEB reference case forecast in order to have more than one terminal,” he said of the 330 per cent increase from current gas levels anticipated by 2035 in midrange NEB supply projections. “If we commit to 20 year projects, and are required contractually to provide that gas, we’re going to need to import a lot more gas.” The “high case” scenario of five LNG plants, would require 43,000 new wells by 2040 according to his calculations and he says there are limits to how many drills will fit in these ar-
eas that can effect recoverability of deposits. Just keeping up with current demand would require that 8,000 new wells be drilled in B.C. And domestically in Canada, where we are huge consumers of energy because of the climate and distance between cities, that demand is massive and will continue to be large even as renewable energy sectors grow. “We’re right up there with Saudi Arabia. Actually we are worse than Saudi Arabia. We use about 5.3 times as much energy per capita as the average person in the world. The Americans use 4 times the world average. We use 5.3.” “What is the best use of those resources? Liquidate it as fast as we can?” Hughes asks. “Future generations are going to curse us if we liquidate this for marginal returns.” He said that in the five LNG terminal scenario the Canadian gas surplus would run dry in several decades. “You could run a five terminal case, if you could drill wells fast enough, for about 4050 years. You could run a two terminal case for longer but that’s making optimistic forecasts about recoverability.” He said the amount of gas in the ground
hasn’t been proven through drilling yet and is a theoretical “resource” number as opposed to reserve. Hughes said he is aware of the optimism in the Terrace area and through the northwest for an economic upsurge. “Prince Rupert is dying. Fishing is really down. Logging is really down. So people are really looking at LNG as wow, this could be really great.” The final analysis of Hughes might even seem optimistic to those with vastly lowered expectations in an area that is pessimistic about grand promises. He sees two projects led by state-owned companies as the most likely to forge ahead. These are Grassy Point LNG led by China National Offshore Oil Corporation and Pacific Northwest LNG owned by Malaysia’s Petronas. “Their concerns are maybe not as much profit-based as energy security based, so they are trying to tie down a supply,” said Hughes. “They don’t care what the price is because they know they are going to need it eventually.” Hughes spoke in various places on this tour, including Smithers and Terrace.

VICTORIA - The B.C. government released details of its pre-election property sales, showing it came out with more money overall than appraisals or B.C. Assessment Authority values forecast. Opposition critics called for the disclosure after obtaining government memos that showed a rush to make the deadline for the 2013-14 fiscal year, where the B.C. Liberals campaigned on a balanced budget tabled before the 2013 election. NDP critics highlighted property in Coquitlam that sold for millions less than an appraiser estimated it would get. Finance Minister Mike de Jong said the 14 Burke Mountain properties are an “outlier” in the dozens of land sales that closed during the finance ministry’s budget-balancing program. Later appraisals by the City of Coquitlam identified steeper terrain and streams with protective setbacks that limited their development, decreas-

ing their market value by 20 per cent overall. Development property south of the B.C. legislature beat its appraisal by $13 million, selling for $34 million to help the government meet a $350 million target to end the fiscal year. A former hospital site in Surrey was sold for $20.5 million, $3 million less than its B.C. Assessment Authority value for property tax purposes. Finance ministry records showed the sale price was midway between two appraisals, one commissioned by the government and the other by the buyer. De Jong said surplus Crown property is sold every year, with about 1,500 properties disposed of in the last 30 years. They will continue, but there won’t be another identified program in future budgets now that post-recession deficits have ended, he said. NDP finance critic Carole James said there was an obvious rush to meet ministry targets for asset sales, and some could continue to be sold below market value without the public knowing.

Rash of vandalism strikes Port Edward By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
PORT EDWARD - The District of Port Edward is asking the public to be vigilant following a costly few weeks in the community. “We have had a rash of accidents and things taking place here. We have had vandalism to boats, we lost a bus stop, a vehicle hit the barriers in front of the Welcome to Port Edward sign and we had items stolen from the former school grounds,” explained public works foreman Scott Duffus. A vehicle lost control and hit the retaining barriers at the sign on April 16 and on April 21 the bus stop outside of Maverick Foods was completely destroyed with only tire marks in the grass remaining. “We have to get quotes for a new bus stop from the company in Ontario so it looks like we will have to ship one here. That will be costly, plus with the cost of the shelter itself and
our cost to install it, I expect this damage will end up costing the district between $7,000 and $10,000,” said Duffus. The next day RCMP responded to reports of vandalism to a private boat located in the district. “The Prince Rupert RCMP were called to investigate damage to a boat at the end of Wolf Creek Road near Port Edward. All of the windows were broken and damage was also done to the inside of the vessel. A Property Crime Examiner attended the scene and examined the vessel,” explained Sgt. Jagdev Uppal. “The Prince Rupert RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance in locating the person(s) responsible for this blatant act of vandalism. If you have information about this or any other crime you are asked to call the Prince Rupert RCMP at 250-6242136 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.” At some point during the past few weeks, the chains

Figures show increase in evictions disturbing a neighbour or damaging property and more. He said the most common case the centre dealt with in 2014 was a tenant not paying rent. Kristiansen said one major catalyst for the increase in his caseload was the economic activity in the community related to industry. “The workers that came to town to work in 2014 were renting every available apartment, house and sometimes motel or hotel room. My usual clientele were facing much greater difficulty in finding housing or retaining housing than they did in previous years,” he said, noting many low income renters feel left behind when it comes to housing options. “I would like to see an increase in subsidized housing or what’s sometimes called social housing through any means possible. I’m hoping one day the federal government or provincial government will see fit will to put that item in their budget.” As for talk of renoviction, which sees a landlord evict a tenant in order

PRINCE RUPERT - Figures produced by the Prince Rupert Unemployment Action Centre show just how much the rental market changed from 2013 to 2014. In 2013 advocate Ulf Kristiansen handled 38 cases with only three related to housing issues. Fast forward one year and the centre handled 189 cases that included 56 hearings related to tenants trying to fight eviction notices from landlords. Of those 56 hearings, 35 stemmed from eviction notices served to those living in the Port Edward trailer court while another 21 hearings were notices served for those living in apartments and houses in Prince Rupert. Kristiansen noted there was an array of reasons behind these evictions, including unpaid rent, “renovictions”, evictions where the landlord wanted a relative to move in instead, evictions stemming from

to improve the unit before putting it back on the market at an increased price in order to skirt the 2.5 per cent maximum annual rent increase allowed by the province, Kristiansen said it is a real problem now and may be a bigger one going forward. “I suspect that many landlords are now deciding to renovate or move a relative into their rental units, not because they wanted to do this, but because they wanted to find a reason to get current tenants out. In my current estimation, the current rent in Prince Rupert has gone up by one and a half to two times,” he said, noting landlords seem “anxious” to raise rents. “Anyone who faces a rent increase that seems unreasonable should come and see me at Fishermen’s Hall” Kristiansen said there is hope for those who have been served with eviction notices. He notes that in 2014, approximately 75 per cent of those facing eviction in Prince Rupert prevailed in their hearings.

PRINCE RUPERT - The group zeroing in on the redevelopment of a neglected park on McKay Street/ Kootenay Avenue hosted a block party last week to hear from neighbourhood residents. More than 100 people attended the Earth Day event in the park’s overgrown baseball field, consisting of music, entertainment, activities
to gather input from those residing in the area about what they’d like to see the park used for, asking residents to fill out a short survey while also trying to recruit volunteers to help build and maintain the new park. “We’re still in the survey phase of asking the community and nearby residents what kinds of things they would like to see on this field. Today is the last step of that,” said Ken Shaw of Transition Prince Ru-
pert. Earlier this month, Prince Rupert Mayor Lee Brain met with students from Pineridge Elementary School to hear their suggestions, with the Kaien Anti-Poverty Society (KAPS) asking neighbourhood residents utilizing its programs for their thoughts. “Everybody that we’ve talked with is very happy with the idea that this place is going to get redeveloped. A lot of ideas and suggestions
are coming out of the people that are attending today ... We’re very happy with the turn-out,” said Colleen Hermanson of KAPS on April 22. All of the feedback will be compiled into a report and used by a professional designer to plan the new layout of the park. Once complete, the design will be brought back for further feedback from the public. “People are really excited,” said Shaw.

In Loving Memory of
Artur Camara Silva
December 20, 1922 to April 15, 2015 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Artur Camara Silva on April 15, 2015. Artur slipped peacefully into the arms of his Lord Jesus. He is now with his beloved wife, Maria de Lourdes Silva who passed away on January 21, 2013. He is survived by his son Arthur (Maria); his daughter Filomena (Durval); her son Jose (Lola); his grandchildren David, Christine (Christopher), Joshua, Daniel, Andrew (Amy), Kristy (Cameron), Jonathan, Amanda and Eva; great grandchildren Caleb, Olivia, Dain, Cohen, Jillian, Hazen and James; his brother Mariano da Silva; sisters-in-law, Merces da Silva and Cremilde da Silva; and numerous nieces and nephews. Artur’s passion was his family, his garden and walking everyday. He will be sadly missed. A celebration of Artur’s life was held at Christ the King Catholic Church on Wednesday, April 22, 2015. The Silva and DaCosta families would like to express their gratitude to all for attending Artur’s funeral mass, and also all the prayers that he received from so many friends. A special thank you to Father Terry Brock for visiting Artur at the Multi Level Care, to Father Babji Merugu for officiating the funeral mass, to Dr. Mills and to Multi Level Care and their nursing staff for their kindness and support.
Forever loved and missed.

Mary Elizabeth (Betty) Auton
January 21, 1928 to April 21, 2015 It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our mother and grandmother Betty. Betty was pre-deceased by her beloved husband Donald Auton in 2009. Left behind are her two sons Russell (Dale) and Ian (Marni) and grandchildren, David, Wesley, Skye, and Vaughan. Betty was born in Dundee, Scotland and immigrated to Canada in 1955. She resided in Ocean Falls, New Westminster, and lastly made Kitimat, BC home since 1975. Along the way Betty has made many lasting and true friendships. Her kindness, loyalty, warm conversations, and love for her family and friends will be dearly missed. The family would like to thank the staff and volunteers at the Mountain View Lodge for their compassionate care, and her close friends Dorothy, Linda, and Pat for always being there for Betty.

Rupert takes advantage of new home track By Kevin Campbell
THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
PRINCE RUPERT - Turns out, hosting a track and field meet at Charles Hays has more than one advantage for young, coastal Prince Rupert athletes. Not only do they not have to spend hours in a bus, potentially cramping their knees and legs, but the newly-installed Charles Hays track is, not surprisingly, one of the best in the region. “This is a really nice field, so it’s really awesome to be able to have [a meet] here this year,” said track member and Charles Hays (CHSS) student Quin Diep on Saturday. “The advantage of having a meet here is that we actually have a good track,” said the lone CHSS 2014 provincials-qualifying athlete, Kevin Rioux. “In Terrace, they have a pavement track so it’s hard to use the spiked shoes.” CHSS track and field head coach Dighton Haynes led his team through their first meet of the year on the weekend and they impressed with a second-overall team placing with 303 points, combining the Grade
8 athletes from Prince Rupert Middle School (PRMS). Smithers athletes claimed first with 356 and Terrace third, taking 206 points. “With this being the first meet, it’s time to see what we sort of have and then we’ll assess it after the day and work on each person’s performances,” said the Haynes. “It’s a lot easier for athletes to [come out to the meet] when they’re not travelling, so this will probably be our largest turnout.” Despite the smaller team this year, the coach is confident his athletes can make some noise around the region. Saturday’s athletic showcase began with steeplechase, with javelin and discus at Prince Rupert Middle School, followed by the various distance races and relays at the high school, coinciding with high jump, long jump, triple jump and shot put. In the girls’ Grade 8 100 metre dash final, Prince Rupert’s Maddison Abrahams claimed second-overall and second again in the 400m run. PRMS’ Jessica Nguyen took third. In the 800m Grade 8 girls’ race, Coast Tsimshian’s Rechee Auckland-Horne

Terrace plans bid for major aboriginal hockey tournament By Staff Writer THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
TERRACE - The area could play host to a national aboriginal hockey championship tournament in 2017 provided a bid being prepared is successful. Eight female and eight male teams of players in their mid to late teens from across Canada along with coaches and others would be expected to attend, says Terrace city councillor Brian Downie, a member of a committee which has been exploring the idea of hosting the tournament. The bantam/midget level National Aboriginal Hockey Championships have been held since 2001 and Downie expects more than 500 people would travel here. “I think this is an exciting opportunity,” said Downie in comparing the tournament to the hosting here in 2010 of the BC Winter Games, an event which harnessed a huge amount of volunteer
participation. As many as 44 games would be played, taking up approximately 120 hours of hockey at the Terrace Sportsplex’s two rinks over a week-long period. “It would be a pretty busy place,” said Downie of the sportsplex. This year’s tournament began April 27 in Halifax and lasts until May 2. The 2013 and 2014 tournaments were held in Kahnawake, Quebec. The local committee, which includes Kitselas and Kitsumkalum, the Kermode Friendship Centre, the Kermode Tourism Society and the Terrace Minor Hockey Association, has until today to submit a letter of intent which would then be followed by a comprehensive bid package. “It’s quite an involved bid process,” Downie noted of the package which would first be evaluated along with other bids in B.C. The successful one would then being sent to a national selection
some minor soccer players, who were working on drills and scrimmages, making for a busy Saturday noon-hour CHSS parking lot. Rupert faced some tough competition from all areas of
the region, but some of the athletes found that Smithers in particular put up quite the test for the North Coastbased students. Their contingent was just as large as the hometown
Rainmakers. “I would say Smithers is one of the toughest schools right now,” said Diep. For a longer version of this story, visit www.thenorthernview.com/sports.
Brian Downie body. The addition of three hotels now under construction and an airport served by three airlines contribute to the area’s amenities, he said. Downie sought the official blessing of the city at the April 27 city council meeting. The National Aboriginal Hockey Championships were founded by a national organization called the Aboriginal Sport Circle and sanctioned by Hockey Canada, the national organizing body for hockey in Canada.

British Invasion arrives in Rupert By Kevin Campbell THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
PRINCE RUPERT - It may have been almost 150 years ago that Queen Victoria signed the royal proclamation of Canadian Confederation, joining the Provinces of Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick into one dominion named Canada, but on Saturday night here in 2015, the British and their musical and comedic influences returned to the west in a big way. Led masterfully by emcee Keith Lambourne, predictably a Brit himself, the Lester Centre’s Completely Plugged: British Invasion fundraising concert blew the roof off the iconic northwestern theatre’s walls. Nine area acts performed spaced between the Harbour Theatre’s re-creation of various Monty Python sketches that made the audience wonder how they ever watched multi-band concerts without them. Lambourne led the audience back to a time in the 1960s where “19 of the top 20 Billboard bands were all British acts”. Given new life by such Prince Rupert staples as Mermaid Café, Aja Lihou and Jeff Saunders, Ian Lihou, Triple Bypass, Dixie Dead Shake, Ray Leonard, Nobody Told Rachel, Silver Shadow and many, many more talented vocalists and musicians, the 1960s’ British rock scene was on full display with a

Our smelter modernization and the environment
KEVIN CAMPBELL / THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
Jewel Jerstad of Mermaid Cafe lends her voice to the Completely Plugged show at the Lester Centre on Saturday local twist. Interspaced between the Harbour Theatre’s antics and the stage’s rocking bands, Lambourne filled in the few quiet gaps with a few nuggets of trivia concerning James Bond, Monty Python and Dr. Who, who it turns out, was created by a Canadian in Britain. Not only taking a page from the popular chart-topping hits from Britain’s finest musicians, the acts delved into more obscure songs and renditions that gave the audience a more diverse and fully-realized UK experience.
Harbour Theatre’s skits were comprised of Monty Python’s infamous “Cheese Shop” bit originally featuring John Cleese, the fish-slapping dance and argument clinic. Once the night had wrapped up, a majority of the acts assembled onstage for one planned and one unplanned encore. Ian Lihou turned it on and electrified the Lester Centre with Queen’s Somebody to Love, transitioning into a verse from Bohemian Rhapsody. All funds generated from the concert will go towards benefitting the Lester Centre.
We’re listening Shawn Zettler, our environmental lead coordinator, will be available at our community office located in upper City Centre Mall in Kitimat to answer your questions and receive your comments between 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm on the following dates: Wednesday & Thursday 6 - 7 May Wednesday & Thursday 20 - 21May Wednesday & Thursday 27 - 28 May

EXTRACTING B.C.’S NATURAL GAS TO PRODUCE LNG A SPECIAL SERIES ON LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS
Hydraulic fracturing is a tried and tested way of accessing natural gas.
Typical depth of potable water sources and domestic wells in B.C. Typical depth of a hydraulically fractured natural gas well in B.C.:
of natural gas wells have multiple layers of steel casing cemented in place to protect groundwater
of all new natural gas wells in B.C. are hydraulically fractured
of the fracturing fluid is a mixture of water and sand; the rest is additives, many of which are found in everyday household products
Hydraulic fracturing is not new to British Columbia. It has been used for nearly 60 years to extract natural gas safely and efficiently. The natural gas industry, including hydraulic fracturing, is regulated by the BC Oil and Gas Commission, which employs hydrologists, agrologists, geologists, reservoir engineers and environmental analysts who ensure that the industry is following B.C.’s laws and regulations. The Commission also hosts fracfocus.ca, a website that provides detailed and objective information about hydraulic fracturing in B.C. 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.
