Date set for MLA’s slander suit By MARGARET SPEIRS A CIVIL lawsuit filed by a politician over comments made at an all-candidates forum during the 2013 provincial election has been set for a trial in July. A 10-day trial by jury has been set to start July 13 for a supreme court justice to hear from plaintiff Skeena NDP MLA Robin Austin and defendants James Lynch and Michael Brousseau. The justice will decide if

damages should be awarded to Austin for allegedly slanderous words spoken by Lynch at the meeting and believed to be influenced by Brousseau, a political opponent of Austin’s, according to Austin’s civil case notice of claim. In another notice of trial filed with the court Austin and Lynch “agree that not more than 10 days is a reasonable time for the hearing of all evidence and arguments in this action. The de-

fendant Michael Brousseau has not provided an estimate.” Brousseau also had a deadline of March 31 to provide documents he may use at trial to Austin but failed to do so. In Austin’s civil claim, first filed in the BC Supreme Court Jan. 9, 2014, Austin said Lynch’s comments at the April 2013 all candidates meeting, in which he alleged Austin abused a foster child, characterize Austin as a sex-

ual predator and not worthy of his standing in the community and of his position as a public official, are not only false but libelous. Austin is claiming general, aggravated, punitive and special damages against Lynch and also against Brousseau, who ran against Austin as a BC Conservative candidate in that election and in the previous 2009 provincial election. The original suit filed against Lynch included a

“John Doe” who was then described as Brousseau in the amended suit, filed Oct. 2, 2014. In Lynch’s amended response, he denied having any plan or scheme between himself and Brousseau when he made the statements or at all. It goes on to say that Lynch acted “entirely on his own in making the statements” and that Lynch does not know Brousseau, other than from minimal contact

from when Brousseau was campaigning. Brousseau has also maintained he did not know Lynch nor scheme with him and that Austin’s claim against him is politically motivated. Speaking late last year, Brousseau said he encountered Lynch once when he was out door knocking in support of his candidacy during the 2013 provincial election period.

Licence buy called reasonable By JOSH MASSEY THE $18 million paid by a provincial crown corporation to buy out a joint venture’s coal licences in the Klappan area in northwestern B.C. was reasonable, says an official from one of the companies in the joint venture. The purchase of the 61 licences from the Arctos Anthracite Joint Venture owned by Fortune Minerals of Ontario and POSCO Canada, a Korean subsidiary, by BC Rail ends for now what has been more than a decade of controversy over development in the region. Also known as the Sacred Headwaters, the Klappan is within Tahltan traditional territory and the Tahltan have objected to attempts at industrial development in the area used for an array of cultural practices. Although Fortune had been working for years at getting environmental approval to develop a large-scale open-pit anthracite coal mine in the Klappan, company official Troy Nazarewicz called the $18 million pay out “a reasonable solution for all parties.” Nazarewicz says his company’s interest in the Klappan was on the wane anyway because of the stalling market for anthracite coal and because the environmental process was dragging on longer than the company wanted.

Sign in limbo


PLANS ARE in the works for a more efficient and safer drive-through at the Southside Tim Hortons.

Drive-thru improvements planned By JOSH MASSEY SOON, TERRACE residents will be able to get their double-double from a double drive-thru. Terrace city council has voted in variance permits that will provide the Keith Ave./ Hwy16 Tim Hortons with a new access road that will cut over to Evergreen St. adja-

cent to what will be a Great Canadian Oil Change outlet and car wash opening soon. The oil change owner, Keith Ave Holdings, will be designing their business construction in consultation with the Tim Hortons owner TDL Group Ltd. in the hopes of easing congestion at the Keith Ave./Hwy16 and South Kalum intersection

where the Tim Hortons franchise is located. “The developer is working collaboratively with the TDL Group Ltd. (Tim Hortons) to enable enhancements for access and site circulation within these two properties,” says information presented to council at its May 11 regular meeting. In April, the traffic con-

gestion at the corner of Keith Ave. and South Kalum St. and the resultant crack down by RCMP on chaotic driving habits there made national news. This was in part because of the intake at the Tim Hortons backing up traffic and further stressing an intersection logging the highest accident rate in town. In addition to the new ac-


cess is more parking and a double lane drive-thru capable of processing two in-vehicle coffee orders at a time. Councillor Lynne Christiansen called the new concept chaotic-sounding, but overall council seemed satisfied that the double service drive-thru and new access will enhance safety at the intersection.

CITY COUNCIL has given an initial turndown to a company that wants to install a billboard-like sign on the corner of the Sande Overpass and Keith Ave. where there is an abandoned building that was once part of a fuel services location. A third party, Seko Construction, wants a sign there of 11.9 square metres, larger than the maximum 7.4 as regulated in the city sign bylaw. The property is owned by UCANCO General Partners Inc. James Cordeiro was the only councillor speaking in favour of allowing a large sign, saying that such signs already exist on the outskirts of Terrace. But councillor Stacey Tyers said such a long sign would be unprecedented within the city. Council voted to request that staff get more information about the sign before making a decision. Councillor Brian Downie said that the problem is not with the sign’s content, but with the size of the sign itself.

Tax exemptions granted by city


NORTHWEST REGIONAL Airport manager Carman Hendry on the airside tarmac of the facility.

Airport passenger drop well within expectations

PASSENGER TRAFFIC at the Northwest Regional Airport continues to dip but it’s not unexpected, reports airport manager Carman Hendry of April’s statistics. April’s regular passenger traffic stood at 17,282, down from 20,219 the month before and down from 20,566 from April 2014. And when charter passengers are factored in, the April to April decline is approximately 1,000, says Hendry. “It’s what we had


anticipated,” said Hendry in noting that a drop comes as Rio Tinto Alcan’s Kitimat aluminum smelter rebuild begins to wind down. Virtually all of the charter traffic has come from work crew shift changes at the Rio Tinto Alcan project, he added. “Our mining traffic has been holding steady and we anticipate an increase now that Northern Thunderbird is about to resume its Miner’s Express flights to Dease Lake,” he said. Those Dease Lake

flights are timed to take advantage of affiliated Hawkair’s service to and from Vancouver, he said. The opening of the Red Chris copper and gold mine near Iskut will also add to passenger traffic here, Hendry said. With airlines now adding flights for the summer months, people wishing to travel to and from Vancouver on either Air Canada, Westjet or Hawkair have a choice of more than 10 flights during week

days, Hendry said. Hawkair affiliate Central Mountain also offers service to Calgary via Prince George, Westjet has just added its own Terrace to Calgary service and Air Canada will soon follow. “People should realize we have excellent service from this airport and now they need to support it,” said Hendry. Passenger traffic has surged in the past years thanks to the Rio Tinto smelter rebuild and the Northwest Transmission Line.

What’s that?

Do you ever wonder what’s with some of the icons and signs placed around Terrace? Same here. Let’s explain. First destination: The Millennium Trail By ANNA KILLEN

Ooh, what’s that?” asks an out-oftown friend as we drive along Highway 16 heading west. He’s pointing to Terrace’s 1.6 kilometre linear park, aka the Millennium Trail, formally called the Grand Trunk Pathway, and what some like to call Terrace’s seawall – except instead of running between the ocean and a park, it runs between the railroad tracks and the highway. That latter bit of description doesn’t quite give justice to what has over the last decadeand-a-half – and thanks to the dedication of the Terrace Beautification Society and other community members and groups – evolved into a fairly primped pathway to linger along. And whether you’re running, biking, strolling, or hey, even rollerblading the treelined route, there are plenty of opportunities to stop and say, “What is the deal with that thing, anyway?” So, here’s the deal with some of those objects. And please, send your suggestions for other Terrace landmarks or icons or weird things you’d like explained to newsroom@ and we’ll include them in a future article. 1. That’s right. Terrace has its own song – it’s even logged in the national music archives in Ottawa. “The Spirit of Terrace” was composed by Terrace’s music master and mentor, Jim Ryan (he’s the founder of the Terrace Community Band and the Terrace Symphony Orchestra). The metal monument was erected as part of a fundraising opportunity for the Dare to Dream foundation in the early aughts – this was back when the group had a deal with Alcan, when Alcan was just Alcan, not Rio Tinto, to match money raised – and as a testament to Ryan, who died in the ‘90s. But what does it sound like? Head to – or check out the band’s next concert. They play it often. 2. Yes, this historic old railcar is still used – just like the sign says, the Skeena Valley Model Railroad Association meets Monday at 7:30 p.m., although there are only three attending members left (talking to you, train model aficionados hiding in your sheds and others who are just interested in checking it out). The public can also climb aboard during Riverboat Days. 3. This stone monument and bench, found on the western end of the trail, honours loggers of the pacific northwest, and is one of a


number of boulders and benches honouring important and generous Terracites clustered along the route (my personal fave: the boulder thanking a local crane company for “raising Terrace to new heights”). Do you want a boulder or a bench of your own? Talk to the city. There is a standard form and fee for benches, and boulders or other monuments that need city staff input. The eastern end of the trail has a lot going on but the western end – due to eventually be lengthened to Kitsumkalum – has plenty of room. Surely some groups fancy themselves a boulder, a bench, or something else entirely? 4. Not graffiti. There is one lone sticker on a lamppost near the eastern end of the pathway that marks that time the Olympic torch passed through Terrace in 2010 en route to Vancouver. 5. No, that’s not the source of the strange sounds in Terrace, B.C., it’s a historic flywheel that helped power the Little, Haugland, and Kerr Sawmill dating back to the early 1920’s. There’s a historical board at the base of the structure that explains its history, but Terrace Beautification Society past-president Chris Olsen says that as soon as George Little’s granddaughter decided to donate the wheel, decisions on where to put it and how to display it flew by without a hitch. 6. Did you know that the short table-top like concrete structure at the first fork of the pathway (right beside the wheel) actually points out all of the mountains that make up the walls of our little snowglobe of a town? Because it does. 7. & 8. Spirit bears, of course. At left, a mosaic bear done by Kaye and Matt Ehses, of Northern Light Studio, for Terrace’s 75th anniversary. The bear is built on a stained glass window the couple created for the town’s 50th anniversary. Unfortunately, Northern Light Studio is a memory, but the art lives on – the stained glass window is at 4818 Halliwell and the Ehses have a stunning Japanese garden with more mosaic creations at their own home on the bench. At right, that’s Luna’s Pod, one of the bears that was part of a huge Easter Seals auction about 10 years ago. Apparently there was a time when if someone wanted to protest something, they’d hang a sign around the neck of the bear in front of the Scotiabank. Terrace, B.C., never change.

Rejected IT’S no surprise the province has rejected a request by northwestern governments for $1.131 million to push for a share of regional resource taxation that would otherwise flow south. After all, the request made through the Northwest BC Resource Benefits Alliance, created last year by northwestern governments, would have the province finance a dedicated lobby whose sole purpose is to lighten the pockets of the province itself. And what government would willingly want that to happen? The official rejection letter also contains cautionary statements tied specifically to the prospect of a liquefied natural gas industry, noting that final investment decisions have yet to be made. It would be, the letter states, “premature for the province to consider entering into any agreements that would see those [taxation] revenues dedicated before they are realized.” That’s a welcome assessment, particularly from a government which went into political hyperbolic overdrive in the first place over LNG. But as Kitimat-Stikine regional district chair Stacey Tyers, who speaks for the alliance, points out, mining and forestry also make up the regional resource economy. It means, she says, there’s more than enough reason to consider the merits of regional resource tax sharing. In this regard, the province should not so easily dismiss the benefits alliance.

Grape thief is of the lowest order of bad


hopping for berries have you ever picked up a plastic clamshell that felt too light and had much empty space at the top? I have. And last week I came upon proof of why some clamshells are partly empty. I was about to select a pint of raspberries displayed next to red grapes on sale that day at two pounds for $3.88. At my right elbow stood a middle-aged couple before the grape display. We three were alone in the produce section of the supermarket. The husband held a shopping basket hooked over his left arm like Little Red Riding Hood on her way to Grandma’s house. On his right, a woman I took to be his wife, opened a clamshell of grapes. I watched him scoop out two handfuls of grapes and stuff them into his mouth before his wife closed the clamshell and set it back on the display. If I had a cellphone I might have videotaped their behaviour and showed it to the manager. Instead when I returned home I phoned the manager . The manager said they are

CLAUDETTE SANDECKI aware some shoppers thieve from displays but unless they catch them in the act, they cannot prosecute them for shoplifting. In this case, the man had swallowed the evidence. The couple were stealing but not so much from the store as forcing some unsuspecting follow-up customer to pay for their pilfering. That angers me. Why should I go home with less than a full two-pound clamshell and pay top dollar for airspace? If the shopper snitching

grapes with no intention of paying for his snack possessed a glimmer of the old fashioned qualities of character, dignity, honour, and conscience, he wouldn’t stoop to filching. For his wife to assist him in his crime reveals her character also. Should we wonder, then, if their children, too, turn out to be petty thieves? With today’s prevalence of cell phones who knows, someone might be watching and video recording? As countless criminal cases prove -- from Robert Dziekanski tasered by RCMP in Vancouver airport, to Sammy Yatim shot nine times in a Toronto bus -- a casual bystander selecting potatoes or broccoli crowns could record incriminating evidence. So quit looking over your shoulder for a manager or other staffer. Any citizen could provide the store and police with the evidence to charge and convict you of shoplifting. Long ago if a child swiped so much as a five cent candy bar on his way out of a store Mom or Dad would march the kid right back to the store to apologize and ante up the nickel.


I doubt that happens any more. More likely the parent would blame the store for displaying the candy bar at a child’s eye level. Still, in the words of Rex Murphy, CBC political commentator, who happened to be talking about unelected senators especially Mike Duffy, people with character and conscience hold themselves to high moral behaviour even when no one is looking. The same rules of character, dignity, honour, and conscience should guide everyone even when no one is watching us. Haliburton, Ontario MP Brock Devlin, called to testify at Duffy’s trial, said, “Much of what is being examined throughout the trial is a matter of integrity and common sense and whether or not Duffy abused the system. There are times when I know that there are things I could expense to the taxpayer that would probably be within the letter of the law, but in my mind I know it’s not right … you have a sense of whether it’s fair or not.” Stealing two handfuls from a clamshell is not in the least bit fair.

The Mail Bag Improve the food

An open letter to: The Northern Health Authority Dear Sirs: Recently I was admitted to Mills Memorial Hospital. I spent time in emergency, intensive care, and on the ward. I found that all personnel – doctors, nurses, and all support staff – were friendly, proficient and caring and deserve our thanks and gratitude for their efforts. However there is one complaint that has been raised numerous times with no results. The substance that masquerades as food! I have had my fair share of bad food. When I asked a nurse what was in the cup tasting like diesel he informed me that it must be coffee as the tea tasted like gasoline. Joking aside something ought to be done to improve the meals and stop the absurd method of preparation, where it is fabricated somewhere in B.C., frozen, shipped to Mills, defrosted in some weird looking vessels that appear to be from outer space and made by some material unknown to man. Even a cup made of ceramic would be an improvement. Everyone understand that you cannot make meals for a great number of people that taste as one made for four people. However if the provincial government and Northern Health were not hell-bent to privatize as much as possible and prevent people in Terrace making a decent living preparing hospital food that is good and fresh, instead they are assuring that minimum wage workers somewhere in B.C. are making someone rich. Northern Health – go back to how it used to be, prepare meals here. John Jensen, Terrace, B.C.



A LATE Parliament Hill shuttle bus drew a complaint from Skeena - Bulkley Valley NDP MP Nathan Cullen. He says there’s more to the story than first meets the eye.

MPs’ powers are being eroded Dear Sir: I read with great interest Claudette Sandecki’s “Seconds delayed is no reason to complain” column in the May 13, 2015 issue of The Terrace Standard about a recent problem I and other MPs had with access to Parliament Hill for a vote.

I sense that Ms. Sandecki missed the central point of my concern, one that has been raised time and again over the years – and at least five times since the 2011 election. Access to Parliament by MPs – and the ability of MPs to vote – isn’t a negotiable idea under Canadian law for a very

good reason: there are countless examples of bills becoming law, or not, and even governments falling, or not, by the casting of one single vote. The recent changes to Parliament security pushed through in an omnibus bill by the Conservatives will forever change this tradition by

removing the House of Commons (and the Speaker who represents us all) as the final say over our Parliament. In Canada, we separate the legislative (the House) and the executive (the Prime Minister and his cabinet) for a very good reason.

Energy company buy lengthens LNG wait

aron Rothschild, an 18th century British nobleman and member of the Rothschild banking family, is credited with saying “The time to buy is when there’s blood in the streets.” Clearly Royal Dutch Shell is of like mind, as evidenced by its takeover offer to British company BG of US$70 billion. That translates to a premium of 52 per cent on what BG shares were trading at when the announcement was made, making it an offer BG’s shareholders can hardly refuse. (This may sound like an eerie echo of Rio Tinto’s successful over-the-odds takeover of Alcan, but there is one big difference: Rio Tinto did that at the top of the aluminum market while Shell is making its move at the bottom.) Predictably the all-knowing, all seeing analysts are divided, some saying the price is way too rich, others that it makes sense. Not that I think Shell much cares about what the analysts say. It clearly thinks this is a smart

move and, given its long, successful track record, who am I to disagree? One interesting development in the wake of the announcement was the ringing endorsement the deal got from a surprising source, Qatar, the number one LNG exporter in the world. The state-owned Qatari Investment Authority bought 67 million shares in Shell and another 12 million in BG at a total cost of $US2.3 billion. Now that is a vote of confidence on a grand scale. So what does this takeover mean to proposed LNG export projects in the Northwest? Obviously the proposed BG plant at Prince Rupert is dead given that Shell’s LNG Canada project in Kitimat would be significantly less expensive – it would be built on an established industrial site (former Methanex methanol plant) and the length of pipeline needed to feed the plant would be considerably shorter. That said, I never thought the BG proposal was likely to come


MALCOLM BAXTER to fruition, dismissing it as another example of piling on. Does it improve the chance of a favourable final investment decision for LNG Canada in the short term? I suspect not and in fact fear it may even push back any such decision. First, the proposed takeover has to receive regulatory approval from the countries in which both companies operate. While I

don’t think that will be a problem – with the possible exception of Australia – it will take time. Second, it is expected that it will take about a year to figure out the configuration of the “new” company and I cannot see Shell making any final investment decision until this and item one are sorted out. And third, having just spent $70 billion on the takeover, are Shell going to be in a great hurry to take on more billions of capital expenditure? Like Snow White’s prince, one day LNG Canada will come, but it may be a bit later than we would like. Still on the subject of LNG I read with interest the story in the April 29 edition of this newspaper in which David Hughes, a consultant with 35 years experience with the Geological Survey of Canada, threw a wet blanket over the lofty predictions of a BC LNG boom. Specifically the idea that there would ultimately be 18 LNG plants on the North Coast was nonsense.

With all due respect, that wasn’t actually a revelation. Anyone who has been following the LNG story – and isn’t taking the same hallucinogenic drugs as Christy Clark and company – has known that for some time. But he did raise one very important point that is too little talked about: “The amount of natural gas available in major reserves in northeastern BC ... is greatly overestimated by the Christy Clark government.” The National Energy Board annually produces numbers on natural gas reserves with the big number being “estimated” reserves. But they also give numbers for “proven” reserves and then break it down further into proven reserves that can be economically developed at current prices. Numbers I saw in 2013 showed proven and economical reserves were 20 per cent of the grandiose estimates. Retired Kitimat Northern Sentinel editor Malcolm Baxter now lives in Terrace, B.C.

Dispose of Household Hazardous Waste the right way:

MPs’ powers Giving all the power just to the executive is incredibly dangerous and is resisted in democracies the world over. What may seem like a small thing is, at its heart, a critical principle of Canadian democracy. Members of Parliament are elected to represent their constituents in the House of Commons, and we do that, often most importantly, by voting. That right to vote and represent our constituents is something worth protecting. Nathan Cullen, Member of Parliament Skeena – Bulkley Valley

Dry weather heightens fire warning By CECILE FAVRON THE NORTHWEST Fire Centre (NWFC) is asking the public to be cautious when burning outdoors due to an increased wildfire risk and to report any suspected wildfires to the BC Wildfire hotline. The fire centre’s warning comes as Environment Canada predicts above-average temperatures this summer. Terrace has two firefighting crews – a unit crew and an initial attack crew – on standby in the event of a fire in the surrounding area. The fire centre urges the public to exercise caution when burn-

ing outdoors because carelessness can result in human-caused wildfires. “Human-caused fires are totally preventable and they take resources away from [fighting] naturally caused fires,” explained fire centre information officer Olivia Pojar. The fire centre cautions the public against burning unnecessarily in dry conditions, especially in the spring when dried, dead grass increases the risk of a wildfire. “Never leave a burning fire unattended [and] make sure that the fire is out [before leaving the site],” advised Pojar.

An alert and wellinformed public can help prevent fires and people should be aware of burning restrictions within municipal or regional district areas. The fire centre has more than 100 trained wildfire fighters to respond to fires across the northwest. The region covered by the fire centre spans from the Yukon border in the north then south to Tweedsmuir Park and east to Endako. At the fire centre’s disposal are four unit crews of 20 firefighting personnel based in Terrace, Telkwa, Hazelton, and Burns Lake. Unit crews are trained to respond to

initial attack, four-person crews spread out across the region. Terrace, Telkwa, Houston, and Burns Lake each have two initial attack crews stationed at their bases. These crews are the first-responders to wildfires. Initial attack crews can travel to even the most remote fires by helicopter and are completely self-sufficient for the first 24 hours once on the scene. If a fire is not easily contained, unit crews are called in for a period of two weeks deployment to fight the fire. When these resources are not enough to contain the fire, re-

Olivia Pojar large, complicated fires. “These crews are trained for sustained action on fires,” said Pojar. “They’ll respond to fires that have been burning for a while.” There are also eight

sources from other parts of the province are requested. Forward attack bases are located in hot spots throughout the region depending on the weather conditions. The fire centre also has air tanker bases in Terrace, Smithers, and Dease Lake. The crews in the region will often travel to other parts of the province should fire conditions dictate. Dangerous activity which could lead to fires and actual fires should be reported to the BC Wildfire hotline by calling *5555 on your cellphone. As of late last week, NG! been 10 there LISTIhave


small fires in the northwest region, which is down from the usual 20. Nine of these fires have been human caused. Six of the fires are currently out and crews are checking-up on the remaining three periodically although they are no longer actively burning. The interior region is already battling their first major fire of the season. The Little Bobtail Lake wildfire has burned approximately 13,000 hectares as of late last week. Ground crews are being assisted by helicopters, air tankers and a large amount of heavy equipment.

Pastor leaves for Sooke job By CECILE FAVRON THE TERRACE Pentecostal Assembly is losing its senior pastor to Vancouver Island this week. Lowell Holmquist, who has been at the church for 15 years, is to be a campus pastor for the Christian Life Assembly in Sooke which is located west of Victoria. “I began to sense that the church was in need of new leadership,” said Holmquist last week of his decision to leave. “An opportunity was brought forward that suited my place in life as a pastor.” Holmquist first moved to Terrace to become the youth pastor of the Terrace Pentecostal Assembly 15 years ago and he has held the

position of senior pastor for nine years. With a membership of approximately 300, the Terrace Pentecostal Assembly is one of the largest churches in Terrace. In his decade-anda-half in Terrace, Holmquist has volunteered as a firefighter for the Terrace Fire Department and he has also been involved with the Terrace and District Christian Council for Social Resources which just last year added six units to the Tuck Ave. senior citizens complex. Holmquist has also spent the last three years as a chaplain for the various emergency services agencies in Terrace. He hopes to offer the same type of chaplaincy once settled in Sooke.

Holmquist’s new Sooke church, the Christian Life Assembly, is a small one which currently rebroadcasts sermons from a parent church in Langley. “My role is to help this new church establish itself in Sooke,” explained Holmquist. Holmquist has three teenaged sons with his wife Marci who works at Canadian Tire. His family has enjoyed doing outdoors activities during their years in Terrace. Holmquist spent most of his childhood living in the Yukon where his father was also a pastor. After receiving a bachelors degree from the Western Pentecostal Bible College in Abbotsford, Holmquist became a youth pastor in Coquitlam.

Class raises money for Nepal relief By GREER KAISER CALEDONIA SECONDARY Social Justice 12 students have raised $717.48 to aid victims of last month’s earthquake in Nepal. The campaign was used as a learning template on how to raise awareness and create a buzz through public relations work. The student project, titled “Because It Could Happen to You,” took place over a week, while the actual fundraising was a two-day lunchtime blitz. Students started by wallpapering small bumper stickers all over the school on Friday, May 1 that simply stated the project’s theme, “Because It Could Happen to You.” By the mid-morning break, the entire school was talking. Speculation about the message posted on the bumper stickers began on social me-

know what’s going on at Cal?” “I think it’s about texting and driving”

was one of the comments overheard in the hallway. Another student was

certain the message was about sexual assault, a topic covered by a recent visit to Cal

from RCMP liaison officer Constable Donald Munro. By the end of the day many students were talking about the possible meaning. When students arrived back to school on Monday May 4th , a photo of Caledonia photo-shopped to look like an earthquake had hit was projected onto the school hallway monitors with a campaign logo, providing the next clue. During morning announcements two students delivered the final clue through a parody routine and explained the need for funds for Nepal. The PR campaign had gained the momentum and interest in the cause. Students involved in the project were hoping to perhaps raise $50 to $100. “We would have been happy with $200 and were totally

shocked but also proud that Caledonia students and staff were so generous,” stated students Aimee de Vivieros and Seth Scott. Taylor Walbauer and Cassie Batjer, also from the Social Justice 12 class, remarked that this experience has left them feeling “really overwhelmed by the kindness and compassion here at Caledonia.” The class learned about various charity organizations and decided to donate their proceeds to the Canadian Red Cross. “With the matching program that means we’ve helped raise over $1,400!” revealed Carley Allison of the federal government’s commitment to match dollar for dollar monies raised across Canada. “That’s really exciting.” Greer Kaiser teaches Social Justice 12 at Caledonia Secondary School.

Legion faces closure if no one participates By MARY ANN MISFELDT


THE ROYAL Canadian Legion Branch 13 colour guard leads Rememberance Day parades. A11

LEGIONAIRES – Where were you? On Tuesday, May 12, a formal Legion meeting could not be held due to the lack of a quorum. It only takes 13 members to hold a legal meeting – we had 12. Comrades! Friends of the Legion! We are going to lose our branch if we do not get members to attend these meetings and volunteers to help the half dozen people who are trying to do all the work now. We need volunteers to run our meat draws, cook our steak dinners, work on committees, to come up with new ideas for fund raising. What would you like to see happening in the branch? What would peak your interest so that you came in more often and/or got involved in the activities? How are we going to

look after our veterans, the people who are responsible for our very being if the Legion in Terrace has to close its doors? How are we going to make thousands of dollars in donations to youth, seniors, hospitals and other things in our community? In four years Branch 13 will be celebrating 100 years of service as a veterans organization in Terrace. Will we still be open? It won’t be much of a celebration if there’s a big closed sign on the door will it? It’s up to you. Come out and help or say good by to a part of our heritage. Applications for bursaries are available at the branch for students who are looking for assistance to further their education. Adult students are welcome to apply. Branch 13 through the Frank Morris Benevolent Fund has some

monies available to assist youth and adults to take advanced education – university, college, trades training – all are acceptable. There are some restrictions on this particular fund i.e. a parent, grandparent or great grandparent must have been in the military. We have a new addition to our Saturday afternoon meat draws. Every second Saturday there is a trivia challenge held in between meat draws. There is no charge for this. You can play on your own, you can play with a friend or you can get a whole group together to earn the bragging rights of being the most knowledgeable person or team. There is a prize for the winner and you get your name on the trophy for the week. May 30 will be the next one, then June 13 and every second Saturday there after.

Two face charges from river incident TWO MEN who were with a Red Deer man missing since the truck they were all in floated down the Skeena River late last fall have been charged with interfering in the subsequent police investigation. Nathan Joseph Heit and Jesse Fehr each face charges of obstructing a peace officer; attempting to obstruct justice; and making false and misleading statements

to police, defined as public mischief. Dustin Steele, 23, was last seen on November 1, 2014 at approximately 9 p.m. in the Copper Flats area, when a truck he and two friends were in was driven into the river and became caught in the current, reported Terrace RCMP Nov. 3, 2014. Two of the men made it to shore and

Dustin was last seen in the back of the floating truck heading downstream on the Skeena River. Search and rescue volunteers and individuals went out for days afterward looking for Steele. Although the incident occurred the evening of Saturday, Nov. 1, it was not reported to RCMP until the following day.

From front

Lawsuit date set

During the all candidates meeting held at the Terrace Pentecostal church, Lynch, in a statement contained in a question to Austin and included as a transcript of comments made at the meeting in the court documents, said he had got to know a girl who was once a foster child of Austin and his wife. He said she told him of sexual abuse and when he asked her why she did not go to the authorities, he said she wondered who would

believe her. “I really felt for the girl because we got to [be] buds,” the transcript of Lynch’s comments continued. The transcript was included in court filings. Lynch took back his statements and issued a formal retraction and apology to Austin after being contacted by Austin’s lawyers and after investigating the claim further. A letter sent to Austin through his lawyer May 8, 3013 and

included in the court documents reads that Lynch “belatedly investigated his source more thoroughly and again spoke to the child’s foster mother … he is convinced the foster child duped him into believing her and there was no basis whatsoever for her statement to him” and that he “is now convinced that there was no truth whatsoever to the allegation she made to him, that he believed and then repeated at the all candidates meeting.”

One of the men, a 25-year-old “who was with Dustin at the truck was arrested for obstruction on November 3rd and released the same day on conditions,” confirmed Ter-

race RCMP Nov. 5. Terrace RCMP continued to investigate the reasons why Steele and the two others were by the river and how the truck ended up in the river.

Searchers did find the truck submerged in the river, on Nov. 4 but bad weather and the river’s current prevented its successful recovery until Nov. 7. In December, 2014

searchers returned to look on the shoreline and shallow water areas and found a child seat and a boot believed to have come from the truck, said search and rescue at that time.

Brucejack Gold Mine Project — Public Comments Invited May 12, 2015 — As part of the strengthened and modernized Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 (CEAA 2012) put in place to support the government's Responsible Resource Development Initiative, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) is conducting a federal environmental assessment of the proposed Brucejack Gold Mine Project, located approximately 65 kilometres north of Stewart, British Columbia (B.C.). The Agency invites the public to comment on the draft Environmental Assessment Report, a document that includes the Agency’s conclusions and recommendations regarding the potential environmental effects of the project, the proposed mitigation measures, the significance of any remaining adverse environmental effects, and the follow-up program. The Agency also invites the public to comment on the potential environmental assessment conditions for the project. These potential conditions would become legally binding on the proponent if the Minister of the Environment ultimately issues a decision statement indicating that the project may proceed. All comments received will be considered public. Written comments must be submitted by June 11, 2015 to: Brucejack Gold Mine Project Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency 410-701 West Georgia Street Vancouver, BC V7Y 1C6 Telephone: 604-666-2431 Fax: 604-666-6990 To view the draft Environmental Assessment Report, the potential environmental assessment conditions, or for more information, visit the Agency’s website at (Registry reference number 80034).

Consistent with the transparency and public engagement elements of CEAA 2012, this is the last of four opportunities for the public to comment on this project. Following this final comment period, the Environmental Assessment Report will be finalized and the Minister of the Environment will issue an environmental assessment decision statement indicating whether the project is likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects, and identifying the conditions that the proponent must meet with respect to mitigation and follow-up requirements in the event that the project is permitted to proceed. Projects subject to CEAA 2012 are assessed using a science-based approach. If the project is permitted to proceed to the next phase, it will continue to be subject to Canada’s strong environmental laws, rigorous enforcement and follow-up, and fines for non-compliance. The Proposed Project Pretium Resources Inc. is proposing the construction, operation and decommissioning of a gold-silver underground mine located approximately 65 kilometres north of Stewart, B.C. The proposed project would produce approximately 16 million tonnes of mineralized material at a rate of up to 2,700 tonnes per day over a minimum 22-year mine life.



NITHYA MASCARENHAS from the provincial Residential Tenancy Branch.

Rules protect landords, tenants BY JOSH MASSEY DUE TO wild changes in housing prices and availability because of increased industrial activity in the north, the provincial government’s Residential Tenancy Branch has taken its first tour of the region to hold information workshops. Held in Terrace at city hall May 11 and 12, organizer Nithya Mascarenhas from the tenancy branch says that the information she provided at the workshop was directed at informing tenants and landlords of their legal rights. “Because of all the natural resource development in the north there are lots of housing issues and questions and we are letting people know what the rules are and how to get help if you need it,” she said. “Very often when landlords and tenants are in conflict, they tend to phone the police and the police are limited in terms of what they can do in tenancy matters. They don’t have authority over the residential tenancy act, they have authority over the criminal code.” That’s where the Residential Tenancy Branch comes in. They will tell people know what the law is and what someone’s options are for arbitration. Some rules protect the landlord and others protect the tenant. For example, a landlord is only permitted to raise rent once a year and the maximum is 2.5 per cent. They also have to give three months before they do so. And there are rules to protect landlords trying to sell their houses. One rule in this category is that it is illegal for the tenants to spread false rumours about the quality of the house to prospective buyers, something that more than one landlord at the meeting had happen. The workshop also focused on eviction protocol. For example, those who attended learned that the tenant has to leave within 10 days if they don’t pay the rent. If they don’t leave, the landlord has to apply for an order of possession which takes another two weeks if the paperwork is done right.

Environmental group wins award A LOCAL environmental group has won an award from a provincial body for raising money to finance court action opposing Enbridge’s planned Northern Gateway oil pipeline. The award from the Sierra Club BC recognized the role North West Watch played in being the first organization to hold an event to

raise money in support of legal action being taken by First Nations. Called Singing for Salmon, the event spurred a campaign across the province called Pull Together which has now raised $350,000, said the Sierra Club in a release. The Rosemary Fox Conservation Achievement Award is named

after Smithers naturalist Rosemary Fox and is worth $2,000. “Our community is extraordinarily generous in supporting these very important issues – our environment and its future,” said Lori Merrill who co-chairs the group along with Anne Hill. North West Watch was formed in 2010 by Hill’s daughter Julia.

Sierra Club official Caitlyn Vernon congratulated North West Watch, saying its initial Singing for Salmon event was the catalyst for the larger provincial campaign. North West Watch and others are planning a week-long campaign called “The Week to End Enbridge” next month.

Prevent bear problems by sensible precautions AS THE weather warms and bears wake up, residents are reminded to start thinking about items outside their homes that can attract bears. Even without any problems between bears and people, it’s important to clear out anything that might bring a bear into town to eat and convince it to stay for continual food. “No reports of problem bears have been reported to the Conservation Officer Service in the Terrace area yet,” said conservation officer Ryan Gordon, north coast zone at the end of last month. “However, bears are awake and looking for food.” Bears are foraging, looking for foods to replace their body fat that they lost over the winter. Bears have an extremely keen sense of smell and can find garbage in car ports, sheds and vehicles. The best thing is to not put garbage out until the morning of pickup, lessening the time for a bear to smell it and come to check it out. The provincial Wildlife Act lists feeding dangerous wildlife as an offence with a $345 fine. Some motorists will stop when they see a bear on the side of the road and, in addition to taking pictures, will then feed the animals. “Every year bears are destroyed because they become conditioned to eating garbage and unpicked fruit,” said Gordon. Garbage can be kept inside a garage or shed if the structure is bearproof, but should not be kept in the back of a vehicle or under a canopy, which aren’t bear-proof and will get damaged. Barbecues should be cleaned of grease and fat, which are attractive to bears because they are high calorie foods for bears. Proper cleaning includes using a wire brush to clean the grill and removing and cleaning drip pans. Cleaned barbecues can then be kept inside a bear-proof shed. Putting an uncleaned barbecue into a shed

could lead to property damage when a bear tries to get to it. Bird seed or suet in bird feeders are also attractants and should be taken down in spring and summer. Compost should have any meat, meat by-products, fish, and

cooked fruit and vegetables removed. Sprinkling lime on compost will help the process of composting and reduce odour. Covering compost with dirt or soil or grass clippings will help keep food odours from getting out.

College honours two people for valuable contributions

THIS YEAR’S Northwest Community College (NWCC) graduation was celebrated May 13 at the REM Lee Theatre at which students from throughout the region representing more than 14 areas of study crossed the stage to receive their credentials. The president was on hand to congratulate all those who received their diplomas and awards. “We are here to celebrate your dedication and hard work, tenacity, strength and achievement,” NWCC president Ken Burt said in his address. “You should all be very proud.” There were two new awards given out this year, the Distinguished Alumni Award and the Community Service Award. The Distinguished Alumni Award went to a woman who started her educational path at NWCC in 1986. Geri McDougall was born in Hazelton and was widowed in 1976 – leaving her with five children to raise on her own with the help of her extended family. She started at NWCC in 1986 taking Adult Basic Education and the Social Service Work Program. McDougall says the staff and instructors were instrumental in terms of the support she received as she worked toward completion. She successfully obtained her high school equivalency (GED) and was accepted at the University of Victoria. She graduated from that program in 1992 with a Bachelor of Social Work despite dealing with tremendous personal hardship during her schooling. Two years prior to graduation, her son was injured in a car accident and spent months

recovering at the GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre in Vancouver. From 1992-1998 Geri played an integral role with the Hagwilget Village Council. She worked as Social Worker, then became the Band Administrator. In the course of her time there, she also negotiated the arrival of the Royal Bank, the new Band Administration & Health Centre, and Band Hall being built on Hagwilget Reserve. From 1998 to 2012 she devoted her energies to the Northwest Band Social Worker Association, later becoming the Executive Director. She offered counseling services in Terrace and Prince Rupert, and for the six member bands. The Association also offered counseling courses for Band Social Workers. Since 2012 she has been a self-employed counselor offering counseling to the Gitxsan people in Gitwangak and Hazelton through the GitksanWet’suwet’en Education Society. In 2002 she became Hereditary Chief Spookw. In 2014 she was elected as one of the Band Councilors for the Gitanmaax Band and remains active in Social, Work Health and Housing. The Community Service Award went to Brigitta van Heek, recognizing her for demonstrating a commitment to giving back, being a committed volunteer and for her connection to NWCC. Heek completed her K-12 schooling in Terrace and after receiving her university degree she moved to Hazelton to become a teacher. Her impact on students and the greater community has been great.

Working from Hazelton Senior Secondary School, she is a key partner with the college when it comes to promoting post-secondary and dual credit opportunities for students. She is a tireless advocate of education and is dedicated to helping students overcome barriers to completion, the statement continues. “She doggedly supports students even if it means making personal visits to their homes to ensure they make it to school. She understands the value of investing her energy into supporting students and it has made a clear difference in her students and her community.”

Coastal GasLink Pipeline Project

Committed to Environmental Protection and Safety Through April 2015, TransCanada’s Coastal GasLink Pipeline Project team hosted public question-and-answer sessions in nine northern B.C. communities. We’d like to thank everyone who attended, and take this opportunity to respond again to some of the questions that were asked.

What will Coastal GasLink do to ensure safe pipeline operation? •

Pipelines are the safest method of transporting natural gas. TransCanada has been in the pipeline business for over 60 years and is a leader in pipeline design and integrity management with one of the best pipeline safety and operating records in the industry.

During operation, every pipeline is monitored 24 hours a day by highly trained TransCanada employees from a computerized control centre. From there, we are able to detect changes in pressure along our pipelines and ensure that facilities are operating properly. We conduct aerial inspections, on-the-ground inspections, and in-line inspections using mobile remote sensors. Our TransCanada operations specialists, who will live in northern B.C. communities, will maintain the pipeline system and conduct ongoing pipeline safety awareness programs.

What is Coastal GasLink doing to protect the environment? •

We have spent the past three years and over 300,000 person hours gathering information on terrain, vegetation, wildlife, fish and cultural features across the proposed route.

In many cases, Aboriginal community members have shared traditional ecological knowledge as part of our environmental field studies program.

Our project application to the BC Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) presents detailed information on the environmental, social, heritage, health and economic values along the proposed route, along with our proposals for protecting those values. The application is posted on the EAO website at

In October 2014, after a public review of the application, the EAO issued an Environmental Assessment Certificate to Coastal GasLink, specifying ongoing detailed reporting and engagement with the public and Aboriginal communities. Our proposed pipeline route and construction plans already incorporate public input, and we continue to listen to communities. For example, we are currently exploring an alternate route in Wet’suwet’en territory southwest of Houston to see if it would further accommodate concerns about the Morice River.

What will Coastal GasLink do to protect fish and wildlife? •

Residents of northern B.C. recognize the value of salmon habitat. Each watercourse crossing along the Coastal GasLink route will be carefully studied and designed to minimize potential effects on fish, water and stream banks. We will reclaim the land we touch including important streams and riparian areas.

Coastal GasLink is developing comprehensive plans to protect caribou and grizzly bears and their habitat during construction and operation of the proposed pipeline. We have also committed $1.5 million toward provincial caribou management programs and $500,000 toward provincial grizzly bear management programs.

Environmental Protection and Safety_10.31x14_Final.indd 1

Coastal GasLink Pipeline Ltd. is proposing to develop an approximately 670 kilometre pipeline to safely deliver natural gas from the Groundbirch area, near Dawson Creek, B.C., to the proposed LNG Canada gas liquefaction facility at Kitimat. Coastal GasLink is committed to meeting or exceeding regulatory requirements, and to working with regulators through construction to achieve the highest standards of environmental protection. Once in operation, the proposed pipeline would be subject to ongoing regulatory monitoring by the BC Oil and Gas Commission. Coastal GasLink will provide numerous benefits to B.C. including property taxes, local contracting and business stimulus, community investments and more.

A reasonable buy out The company in the past has also been prevented from gaining access to its licences by blockading Tahltan and that resulted in arrests and court appearances. “Obviously with respect to a development schedule, we’re wishing to move forward more quickly,” Nazarewicz said. The area had also at one time been placed under a development moratorium by the provincial government. Fortune and POSCO will divide equally the $18 million being paid by BC Rail. Fortune entered the Klappan mining picture in 2002 when it purchased the licenses from another company called ConcoPhillips for $3.3 million. As of the end of 2014, Nazarewicz said Fortune


had been carrying a cost of just over $32.3 million on its books. He estimated that total expenditures from all the companies involved over the years amounted to more than $110 million. Fortune will use its $9 million from the sale to pay down debt and to provide working capital for other projects. This is the second time the province has become financially involved in the Klappan. In late December 2012 it provided Shell Canada with $20 million in royalty credits in return for giving up its rights to coalbed methane gas in the region. The prospective development of a coalbed methane industry was also protested by the Tahltan.

Huge turnout at first poker ride THE TERRACE Off-Road Cycling Association’s (TORCA) first annual Rusty Chain Poker Ride was a shocking success – drawing more riders than a full deck of cards. The brainchild of Chad France, TORCA’s race director and event planner, the May 13 event benefited from great weather, a non-competitive atmosphere, and by focussing on a fun, social event. Participants rode through a course of trails, stopping at checkpoints along the way. After hitting all or some of the checkpoints (that’s right, riders could decide how much of the route they wanted to complete) they then compared cards and competed for prizes. The Terrace Standard asked France a few questions about the drive behind the event – and what it means for cycling in Terrace going forward.

CINDY DROUIN had the best poker hand at the first annual Rusty Chain Poker Ride.


THE NORTHCOAST Nightmares celebrated their first home win May 9.

Nightmares are ‘bout it, ‘bout it “IT’S REALLY nice to play a game at home,” says Northcoast Nightmares coach Chris “Skimo” Thomas. “It’s also really nice to win at home.” Nearly 300 Terrace roller derby fans were treated to their first home win May 9, a 121-89 takedown of Quesnel Gold Pain City, giving the Nightmares the 2-1 edge in their three game series with Gold Pain. Both teams brought a small roster around 10 players a piece – a typical team has 14, meaning it was a tiring game – with Quesnel picking up jammers from Prince George. Terrace also had to make some changes to its roster, with Slaybia and Bam!b taking on the roles of jammers because the team’s regular points mavens couldn’t attend. “They did an excellent job. They definitely deserve a shout out for filling in a difficult role that they’re not used to. Very different job than being a blocker – quite a change of pace,” said Thomas. “Kind of a different speed and different mentality because everyone’s out to hit you.” This win marks two in a row for the Nightmares, and Thomas feels confident the team has cleared its early season goal of no longer spending 15 minutes at the beginning of the game essentially warming up – and then coming out strong in the second half but fighting to erase a deficit – with a more vigorous warm-up and other strategies. And he now has the team working on more specific goals. Nightmare Jessica “Marge Sins Some” Hogg

says the team is coming out a lot stronger right out of the gate, leading to some close, exciting play. “The first half was pretty close, it would have been an amazing game to watch. We were playing a very, very strong defensive game so our jammers were getting through,” she said. The first half ended with Terrace up slightly, 64-53. And then in the second half “we shine,” she said. “Came back from halftime and just sort of took off... it was awesome. It was a really physical game, lots of big hits and big blocks.” Both Hogg and Thomas gave props to the fans, and noted that the team’s hardcore base is beginning to show. Hopefully, some of those fans will decide to take the plunge and join the team. “There’s definitely fans that we see coming out to all of the games. We’re still a small team – we don’t have enough people to field a full team – so I’m sure some of our next players will come from the stands, people who want to give it a try.” Next up, the Nightmares hit the road for a big tournament in Vancouver hosted by the Terminal City Roller Girls. They’ll go up against similarlyranked teams from Whistler, the Sunshine Coast, and the Okanagan to sharpen their competitive edge. After that, it’s back to the Sportsplex to end the season against the PG Rated Roller Girls – sure to be a do not miss event.


A BOMBER class winner Trevor Reinert’s dad, Rick, races Trevor’s car in the B Bomber race May 10. Rick won the heat and the main.

Sweet times at the Terrace Speedway THE TERRACE Speedway’s race season saw its first race day May 10, Mother’s Day, and it’s already shaping up to be a good season. The annual event saw the Thunder Class Fast time set by #51 Kris Sweet with a time of 19.65, proving that rebuilding his truck over the winter paid off. Sweet went on to win trophy dash, Heat and Main. The Bomber Class fast time was set by #60 Trevor Reinert with a time of 21.19, thankfully his car didn't get bent too bad at the end of last year.

B Bomber Class started the season off with Nathan Archer winning the Trophy Dash in Car #114. Rick Reinert then went on to win the Heat and the Main in Trevor Reinert’s car #60. And the A Bomber class was swept by Trevor Reinert in car #60. Fans can now look forward to the annual kid’s weekend June 6 and 7. This popular event sees drivers give kids rides around the track in their cars during intermisssion – it’s always fun to see the expression on the kids faces while on the track.

Poker ride Q&A


THE NORTHWEST U15 boys are in white and the U17 boys are in black, with coaches Burnip and Johnson on the far left and coach Lowndes on the far right.

Northwest B.C. boys club basketball spans communities NORTHWEST B.C. boys tipped off in a friendly scrimmage earlier this month, part of the lead up to a series of out-of-town tournaments that will pit the northwest teams against players from across B.C. Following the May 9 matchup, the two teams – a U15 club based here in Terrace and a U17 club based in Smithers – head to Langley, the U15s for the Basketball BC U15 Zone Team Championship and the U17s for the Basketball BC U17 Club Championship. The committment shown by the boys on the team is impressive, said Mike Johnson, who coaches the U15 team with Denis Burnip. “We have two boys from Haida Gwaii, one from Kitkatla, one from Lax Kw’alaams, one from Prince Rupert, three from Terrace, three from the Nass Valley and one from Smithers all travelling to Terrace to practice each weekend. The boys from the coast communities have been taking ferries or float planes to


Prince Rupert and then driving to Terrace. “It has been great to bring the boys from all around the region together and the game was cool for me as a parent as well as I have a son on each of the teams,” said Johnson. The U17 team, the Northwest Jr. Timberwolves, is affiliated with the UNBC basketball program and coached by Matt Lowndes. That team has boys from all over the region as well – Lax Kw’alaams, Prince Rupert, Terrace, Hazelton, and Smithers – and have been practising every weekend in Smithers or Terrace. They’re a strong group, winning a tournament earlier in the season at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops. “The overall athleticism and quality of coaching the kids are getting in their school programs has helped them grasp the concepts we’re trying to get across,” said Lowndes. “They’re a good group of kids and have bought into playing for each

ry patterns are legion. A hook with nothing but a body fashioned from silver tinsel will catch fish, but a fly that more closely resembles and/or moves like a migrant salmon juvenile will provoke more strikes. Constructing fry with bodies of epoxy resin and a tuft of soft feather for a tail is a relatively recent innovation that enables an angler to fashion fry bearing an uncanny resemblance to the real thing. Andrew Williams’ book, Cannibal Trout, is an excellent source of information on minnow patterns in general and life-like epoxy minnows in particular, and I suspect that there are more than a few videos available on YouTube on the mechanics of putting them together. Having fished with Andrew when humpy fry were on the move, I can testify to the efficacy of the epoxy imitations, but despite Andrew’s success with them, I chose to continue dressingmy imitations along more traditional lines, partly because flies built that way are more aesthetically pleasing to my eye, and more importantly because those initial patterns were made from epoxy and head cement. Epoxy resin is toxic stuff, as I learned from a steelheader I met on the Coquihalla River before the valley was ruined by the construction of the highway where you can now drive at warp speed legally. I’ve lost the fellow’s name over time, but I vividly recall him telling me how he’d built boats of epoxy and fibre

other, which translates to good success on the court.” This year was a testing year for the program, said Lowndes, who said he’s still not sure what the future of the program will look like. “If we continue in the future, Mike’s U15 group should help us,” he said. “Our biggest challenge is geography, as it’s pretty tough to get together for practices, so rather then focusing on systems, we’re focusing on skill development, and life experiences. “We’ve been happy with the number of kids that we’ve gotten out, and for the future we’d like to see more,” he said. “We just wanted to connect athletes in the Northwest and provide them with some experiences and some memories.” He said the support of Todd Jordan, the UNBC Timberwolves Men’s head coach, has been a benefit. Having athletes “exposed to college level coaching is always a good thing.”

Fish to fry II

Where did you get the idea? The idea started by trying to come up with an event to showcase the fantastic trails that have been built on the Terrace Mountain/Steinhoe area. We wanted an event that would interest everyone. With a little brainstorming amongst the TORCA executive we came up with the Rusty Chain Poker Ride. Poker Rides are traditionally based around fund raising for a local initiative, so supporting the trail maintenance and construction projects planned for 2015 became our initiative. Who won? Cindy Drouin had the winning hand with a full house, jacks high. But, anyone who enjoys the Terrace Mountain/Steinhoe trail network will benefit as all proceeds are being directed to support the new trail construction and maintenance projects planned for this summer. We estimate that the proceeds should cover the construction cost of approximately 55m of new machine built trail. Did most people do the full ride? I believe the majority of riders did do the full ride. But the course was designed for riders to receive a poker hand of five cards if they only wanted to ride half of the route. Do you think you’ll host this event again? Yes, I believe we will organize a similar event for next year. It was a lot of fun for the riders – there wasn’t a rider spotted without a smile on their face throughout the day. We couldn’t have asked for better trail conditions. Our key sponsor, Sherwood Mountain Brewery was great allowing us to host the event at the brewhouse. Plus, if all 2015 planned trail work is completed, there is a possibility of new trails for the poker ride next summer.

Now, wind the oval tinsel forward clockwise in evenly spaced turns and tie it off and snip the tag. Next, wind the mylar forward counter clockwise and tie it off and clip. Half hitch the thread and cut it too. For the next step you will need a bottle of Soft Head, the epoxy substitute I mentioned earlier, or a similar water-based substitute. Coat the body generously. Let this dry, and repeat. When it hardens you will have a bright translucent body that’s a dead ringer for the flanks of humpy fry. For the dark gray back of a pink fry, tie a few strands of polar bear hair and top those with a few fibres from the tail feather of an Amhearst Pheasant. For the belly of the pattern, flip the fly in the vise and tie a bunch of white polar bear so that it extends to bend of the hook. Now, tie a throat of soft red hackle to suggest gills. Finish the head so that it’s quite large. Coat it with water based head cement (I use Hard Head, also made by Loon Outdoors) and when it’s tacky put a drop of Testor’s model paint (bright yellow) on both sides of the head, and when that has set up, a smaller drop of black for a pupil. When this is hard, coat the head with another layer of head cement. When complete, the Amhearst Minnow is a handsome and durable fly that will give you much angling enjoyment.

NORTH AMERICAN SAFE BOATING AWARENESS WEEK IF YOU DRINK, DON’T DRIVE There’s a windsurfing launch site in Collingwood, Ontario. Just next to it is a large inukshuk. That inukshuk was built to honour the memory of Pete Crompton. Pete was an amazing guy, by all accounts. He was a member of Ontario’s ski team. He was a scratch golfer. And he was a stellar windsurfer. Windsurfing was his passion. He loved the water and he loved speeding across it, propelled by a stiff breeze in his sail. If he had lived past his 27th year, there’s no end to what he could have achieved in his life. But Pete didn’t live to see 28. He was killed in a boating accident in 2003, struck while sitting in the stern of a friend’s boat on Lake Joseph. The driver of the other boat was charged with 8 different offences but, chief among them was “impaired operation of a vessel causing death”. When the Canadian Safe Boating Council speaks to Canadian boaters each year about the dangers of drinking and boating, there is no gentle way to do it. Drinking is dangerous on boats. It can lead to deaths like Pete Crompton’s. Every death on the water is avoidable but that’s especially true with alcohol. The motto on the road is “if you drink, don’t drive”. It’s the same on the water. And so are the laws. Legally, there are only very few instances when you can drink on a boat in most provinces in Canada. Specifically, it is legal to drink if the boat is tied up at the dock or anchored for the night - in other words, you’re not going to drive it anywhere - and if the boat is equipped like a residence, complete with sleeping accommodations, a galley and a head. Many people don’t realize this. They assume a boat is a floating version of their cottage, a mobile bar. It isn’t. First and foremost, a boat is a vessel in the same way a car is a vehicle under the Highway Traffic Acts in all provinces and

territories in this country. If you are convicted in Canada of driving a vehicle under the influence, you lose your licence. In many parts of Canada, the same thing applies if you are under the influence in a boat and you’re not meeting the two conditions mentioned above. And you might lose your car driver’s license too. The Canadian Safe Boating Council completed a survey that confirmed some longstanding bad habits among boaters. The study focused on drownings involving boats in Canada and demonstrated that, in nearly 40% of the deaths, alcohol was detected or suspected and 23% of victims were above the legal limit. The effects of sunshine and a boat’s rocking motion increase the effects of alcohol and, for a boater, a simple ride can turn into a dangerous dunking. A big wave, a quick change in the boat’s direction, or a ‘tippy canoe’ can result in someone in the water. However, Pete Crompton’s death was different. He was hit and killed by an impaired operator, a driver so intoxicated he couldn’t avoid slamming into another vessel on open water. When he died, Pete became not just a statistic but a life cut short, its promise never fully realized. Fortunately, his death was not in vain despite how senseless it was. Pete’s father, Ken, lobbied for changes to the drinking laws in Ontario that now reach out to include boat operators.

Fun And Function Has Never Been Safer.

Psychologists know that human nature has a way of rationalizing. “It can’t possibly happen to me” is often the thought. Whether that means “I’ll never be caught” or “I’ll never be killed” doesn’t matter. Neither of those things will happen if boaters stick to just boating on the water. Have a few drinks on shore and then stay put. It’s that simple - If you drink, don’t drive.

Cool business promotes dry ice MARKO FURMANEK was tired of getting soaked from the backwash of high pressure water-based steam cleaners and from being exposed to chemicals while cleaning engines and other industrial equipment of grime, grease and grit. “No matter what you did and how you dressed, you’d just get wet and dirty,” he said. Fellow mechanic and long time friend Gary Louie felt the same. “I got double pneumonia from inhaling the steam,” he said of inhaling chemical-laden steam during a stint at a now-closed gold mine up north. “I know all those chemicals that are used,” added Furmanek. “And it’s not healthy.” The two, along with another old friend and welder, Dean Morris, began looking for a better way. The search took them to dry ice, compressed C02 (carbon dioxide), the stuff used in those billowing clouds which add atmosphere to spooky graveyard scenes in movies. Dry ice is made by pressuring and refrigerating C02 until it liquefies. When the pressure is reduced, some liquid carbon dioxide vaporizes, causing a rapid lowering of temperature of the remaining liquid. As a result, the extreme cold causes the liquid to solidify into a snow-like consistency which can be compressed into small pellets or, depending upon the need, into spaghetti-like strands or into larger blocks. When shot out under pressure through the kind of wand you might use at a car wash, the dry ice quickly and efficiently rids surfaces of accumulated grime, grease and grit. After researching the potential uses for dry ice and the business case for starting a commercial cleaning operation, the three founded Northwest Blizzard Blasting nearly a year ago and have been actively promoting the service for the past four months. The only other similar cleaning business within the interior is in Williams Lake, convincing them there was an untapped market from Prince George west to the coast. Early on they realized that while they could bring in dry ice from an Edmonton manufacturer, they’d lose 20 per cent of the shipment each day

it was on the road. That brought on the decision to make their own, leading to installing a tall cylinder holding 50 tons of liquid C02 next to their building on Hwy16 just west of Terrace. It meant an increase in costs, said Furmanek, but is overall more efficient. The trio has discovered that because the concept is new to the region, they’ve spent large amounts of time explaining what they can do. “There’s no water. That’s the key,” said Furmanek of dry ice which quickly evaporates in the atmosphere. Material that’s cleaned off is frozen, dried to a powder and drops to the ground, making for an easier clean up. “A job might take four hours and then there’s clean up,” said Louie. “With us there’s that four hours and you’re done.” Morris added that the process even makes for an efficient way of cleaning barnacles and other objects from the hulls of boats. The lists of uses includes removing mould found during building renovations and, after a fire in a Terrace townhouse complex, the trio was called in to clean off soot and other material before repairs started. The company is also completely mobile thanks to a large trailer which can hold the heavily-insulated chests containing dry ice and the cleaning equipment. A generator in the trailer also makes them self-sufficient. Aside from industrial cleaning, dry ice can be used to clean large kitchens in work camps. Packaged in blocks – which Northwest Blizzard Blasting sells – and placed in insulated containers, dry ice keeps food either frozen or refrigerated and liquids cool. The company’s customer list includes Golder and Associates, the environmental services company which has used dry ice to keep samples frozen for the trip south for assessment. Furmanek, Louie and Morris have had the assistance of financier 16/37 Community Futures in setting up the company. They’ve also had the benefit of an understanding landlord and companies which have provided services at no charge. “They know what we’re trying to do, establish a business,” said Furmanek.

Board criticizes new education bill BY ANNA KILLEN THE COAST Mountains School District board is joining other districts across the province in calling on the government to rescind recently-passed education omnibus legislation. Bill 11, the Education Statutes Amendment Act, was introduced in the legislature in March by education minister Peter Fassbender. It details a wideranging overhaul to the provincial education system that includes changes to teacher professional development and an expanded ministry mandate. That expanded mandate gives the ministry more authority over district boards, allowing the province to override board decisions as well as designate specific service providers to boards for shared education services. The ministry says the legislation will “help school districts reduce overhead costs, establish a modern framework for teacher professional development, and put a stronger focus on accountability for student outcomes.” But teachers, parent advisory councils, and school boards have been crying foul – and the Coast Mountains board is the latest board to join in. “As all of you know, since the Bill 11 was introduced, it is not in favour of anybody – it is undermining the trustees, it is undermining the education system,” said Kitimat trustee Raymond Raj at the May 13 regular school board meeting. “When you talk to anybody, nobody is happy with Bill 11 – so why are you proceeding with it?” Raj’s motion to tell the province to “rescind the bill, have consultation on all of the issues there, and then have a proper bill” passed with unanimous support from all of the trustees present. Terrace trustee Roger Leclerc was not present, nor was Kitimat trustee Margaret Warcup. Board chair Art Erasmus said the board would word a letter to the ministry similar to those sent by other districts. And Raj encouraged parents and parent ad-

visory councils to write letters as well, noting the Kildala school parent’s advisory council in Kitimat sent a letter in April. “Ask your parent’s advisory councils to

write a letter to the minister. Right now the way it is going they don’t care about the trustees, they don’t care about the teachers, they don’t care about students,” said Raj. “But the par-

ents hold the power. If all of the parents start writing letters and tell the government that this bill is no good, they might back track.” The bill was one of a number of major

education reforms the government introduced to the surprise of trustees and the BC School Trustee Association (BCSTA) – something that was highlighted at a recent trustee associa-

tion meeting Erasmus attended. “Out of the whole trustee academy, the one thing that really stuck out for me was the three motions that dealt with the government going to the

public with their issues without consulting the BCSTA,” he said. “The BCSTA had just signed a letter prior to that that the government would consult with them, and they haven’t done it.”
