arbitration was agreed to, employees would have returned to work while the process occurred. The union refused to comment on the District’s proposal until three days later when they informed the District of their decision to reject the proposal. Their announcement was relayed to the public through the District’s press release on May 28. Unifor 2300 could not be reached for comment on their decision to reject binding arbitration. As for reaching a deal, the latest three-day round of mediation was the last instalment of nine days of mediated discussion between the union and the District that have only aggravated tensions between them. In the last minutes of the May 23 meeting, the union’s Bargain-

ing Committee outlined their “Bedrock Position.” They stated that this final Offer to Settle was “the bare minimum that will improve our working lives.” The District was unable to respond to the proposal slated just five minutes before the mediator’s departure. That is when the District decided to propose binding arbitration. “Enough is enough, we are willing to put everything on the table,” said Mayor Phil Germuth of the proposal. The union then rejected the proposal, but maintained in a press release on May 26 that they are getting close to a deal. Both sides claim to have made significant compromises over the mediation process and blame the other party for the

stalemate. Mayor Phil Germuth maintains that the District’s offer is fair and, in a press release on May 25, states that “this dispute is ultimately about who is going to run the District of Kitimat.” The union maintains issues around safety and harassment and the extent of contracted-out work are not being properly addressed by the District’s proposals. They also have concerns about signing an agreement that does not guarantee a minimum number of full-time jobs nor assigns wage increases based on the level of new industry in Kitimat. The district maintains its proposed 2.5 per cent wage increase in each of the next three years and new full-time jobs in leisure services are generous.

TERRACE - Nancy Benzer-Ross from the social services ministry presents a $100 cheque to John Wiebenga of the Terrace Churches Food Bank on behalf of Michele Freethy. Michele retired from the ministry and instead of a gift, asked that any money collected be donated to the food bank instead.

VANCOUVER - It’s graduation season and the Government of B.C. is reminding grads and their families that making good transportation choices during the celebrations will mean a safe end to the evening, announced Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone. Many transportation options are available to grads. These include personal cars with designated drivers, limousines and buses, and public transit. Consumption of alcohol is illegal in all of these modes of transportation. It is the law in British Columbia that no alcohol can be consumed while traveling in any vehicle. Passengers need to know that limousine operators must refuse to board passengers carrying alcohol and they must terminate trips if they find alcohol being consumed in a vehicle. Trips must end in a safe manner such as returning passengers to their starting point or calling parents to come and pick up minors.

A Northern Health Authority report is suggesting that Mills Memorial Hospital take on a larger regional health care role.


PRINCE RUPERT - An internal report from the provincial government is proposing a significant shift in medical service on the North Coast. The Rural Health Services in B.C. policy paper proposes changing medical service in the Northwest into a “hub and spoke” model of service delivery, essentially moving a number of services from the Prince Rupert Regional Hospital to Terrace. The subject was brought up in a recent legislative committee meeting, with comments on the policy paper being made by North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice in the minutes of the meeting. “The paper, which hasn’t been implemented ... proposed some pretty dramatic changes on how surgeries would be performed in the Northwest,” said Rice. Rice wanted it put on the record that she and many North Coast constituents view Prince Rupert as a hub, serving a number of outlying communities including people from Haida Gwaii and Aboriginal communities.


Mills Memorial’s role could be expanded By Martina Perry

“Those constituents that raised the issue of this internal report have expressed strong needs, that they would like the Prince Rupert Regional Hospital to remain ... a regional hospital providing surgical services.” In the minutes, B.C. Health Minister Terry Lake states Northern Health recommended a hub and spoke model in the region. “It’s critical that, if you’re doing surgery, there be a necessary volume. I know if I’m having surgery, I’d rather go to some surgeon that’s doing a lot of those procedures rather than one who only does one once a week,” said Minister Lake, adding there’s an opportunity to increase services as communities grow and volumes increase. “When you look at Prince Rupert ... there’s a lot of activity — real economic activity now but potential economic activity and population growth — in that region. Then the volumes ... would go up, and that changes the kinds of service levels that you would expect to have.” Northern Health did not immediately return Black Press’ requests for comment regarding the policy paper.

Terrace RCMP seize drugs as well as cash TERRACE - Drugs and cash were seized during a traffic stop May 28 and a 49 year-old Terrace man is being held for court, report RCMP. The arrest followed a traffic stop on Substation Road at approximately 9:30 p.m. after police recognized a man driving who was prohibited from doing so. Police say the driver of a blue Dodge Avenger pulled into a driveway and the driver quickly exited and attempted to walk away.

“He had to return when the car that was not in park began to roll backwards into the police vehicle,” a police report stated. “Police arrested the man. Investigation led to an amount of money, a cell phone, powder and crack cocaine, and heroin being seized,” the report continued. Charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking and driving while prohibited have been forwarded to Crown Counsel., living & giving

Bike to Work Week sees ridership increase year-over-year By Kevin Campbell THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - Bike to Work Week Prince Rupert broke their ridership totals from one year ago, having 59 cyclists travel the roads of the North Coast to get to work from May 25-31. That’s five more riders than 2014. Though their numbers were greater, the distance travelled by the participants couldn’t match the totals from a year ago, with the 59

riders totalling 393 kilometres between them, 113 km short of 2014’s total. The Friendship House smashed the team competition, coming in first-place with approximately 115 kilometres ridden, followed by the Prince Rupert Port Authority, Pioneer Guesthouse and Northern Savings Credit Union head office. “Everybody had a really cool experience. The weather was amazing – not a single day of rain,” said organizer Juliane Mark.

Mark distributed prizes to the winning teams as well as through a draw Saturday at the Last Minute Market and had buttons for sale by donation for participants and supporters. “Button Guy brought his machine so we can use it,” she said, adding the donations from the civic centre, Overwaitea, Safeway, CIBC, Shoppers Drug Mart, Advantage Printing, Pioneer Guesthouse and Farwest Sports made the week a success

“Everybody had a really cool experience.” Juliane Mark In total, eight teams signed up, with 13 new riders over last year. Just under 400 kilometres were cycled, with 12,003 calories burned and 87 kg of greenhouse gas emis-

sions saved. The money raised through the initiative will go towards the Kaien Anti-Povery Society’s Bicycle Fund – offering those without bikes a chance to ride for themselves. A grand prize of a trip for two to Prague was given away and the Rupert Off-Road Cycling Association performed bike repairs for anyone needing it. “We’re really looking forward to next year as well,” said Mark.

Three recognized for their bravery By Cécile Favron



KITIMAT - The Governor General Medal for Bravery was presented to three former KMP ironworkers for pulling two people involved in a head-on car crash to safety near Kitimat in December 2012. The four-decade old award was presented to Jack Tyler, his son Jacob Tyler, and Dale Hession to recognize their exceptional bravery for pulling Bobby Weir from his burning car. The Tylers and Hession, all from Alberta, were working on the Kitimat Modernization Project at the time. The accident on December 5, 2012 was caused by dangerous winter road conditions on the highway between Terrace and Kitimat. The Tylers and Hession saw the accident and risked their own lives to cut Weir, a Kitimat resident, out of the burning car. “This sense came to me that it’s now or never. This car is going to blow up. We either get him out or it’s going to be too late. So I grabbed him with everything I had,” said Jack Tyler in a CBC interview. Just after they pulled Weir to safety, the men said that the car exploded. Jack Tyler then turned his attention to freeing another man from the other vehicle

The accident sent three people to hospital with one, Bobby Weir, medevacted to the Vancouver General Hospital burn unit. Weir was treated in Vancouver for severe burns as well as leg and facial fractures. Knowing that Weir had a long road to recovery, the Tylers and Hession collected donations from other workers at the KMP site. Within a week, they had raised $5,000 which they sent to Weir to help cover medical expenses.

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

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

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

Without Audéo V

With Audéo V

The New Audeo V hearing aids provide considerable reduction in noise allowing you to focus on speech.

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

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

More money for surgeries committed THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

VANCOUVER - Patients who have endured excessive waits for surgery may get into the operating room faster this summer. The province is injecting $10 million into the system to perform an extra 1,000 surgeries province-wide in an effort to reduce wait times. The extra money will be targeted for patients who have waited longer than 40 weeks for surgery, Health Minister Terry Lake said Monday. Orthopedic surgeries, cataracts, hernias, plastic surgeries and ear, nose and throat procedures will be eligible for accelerated treatment. Lake said the money will open up extra operating room time in hospitals across the province, and in some cases it will be used to contract private clinics to perform extra day surgeries. Just one per cent of surgeries in B.C. were performed by private clinics using public funds in 2013, but that’s expected to rise, although it’s not yet clear by how much. “Patients want to have their surgeries done,” Lake told reporters. “If the quality is there and if it reduces wait lists and it’s paid for and administered by the public system, I

think British Columbians would agree with that approach.” Further cash infusions for surgery increases are expected in the fall and early next year. Along with the promised short-term relief, the province is also pursuing longer-range measures to make the surgical system more efficient. Many family doctors often refer to the same heavily booked surgeon due to reputation or preference, while other surgeons are sometimes idle. Lake said one alternative may be to instead shift to a pool of surgeons where patients get assigned to the first one available. Similarly, patients who face a long wait to get into their local hos-

pital may be urged to instead get their surgery performed at another hospital an hour or so down the road where OR time is going unused. “For patients it’s not as convenient perhaps,” Lake said. “But it is an opportunity to have their surgery done faster.” More recruitment and training of anaesthetists and surgical nurses is also part of the longrange plan. B.C. has increased the numbers of surgeries it performs over the years, but demand has risen faster. Lake pointed to soaring demand for procedures such as hip replacements over the last 15 years as patients realize what recent medical advancements now offer them. Each year there are

Relay for Life tops $85,000 in Prince Rupert By Kevin Campbell THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

My name is



PRINCE RUPERT - The survivor’s lap looked a little different this year, compared to 2014’s Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life 12-hour marathon event at the Prince Rupert Middle School track on Saturday morning. Instead of just the lone yellow shirts donned by the survivors, walking behind the RCMP’s Honour Guard at 10 a.m. to kick off the event for a single lap, the survivors were interspersed on the track by friends, family and all kinds of supporters who walked right beside and behind them. It was a little more crowded, but a lot less solitary, said Relay leadership chair Sheila Seidemann. “[The survivors] felt lonely walking by themselves last year. They wanted lots of people walking with them. There’s survivors and then there’s caregivers, but lots of people throughout the community have been supportive of them, even though they’re not particularly their family.” And that’s what Relay for Life became on Saturday – the blend of the fighters who have battled and fought for their health alongside their brothers and sistersin-arms, all working together to find a cure for cancer. And topping last year’s record-breaking $73,000 raised was an even greater $85,000 contributed to cancer research for 2015. That number beats the goal of $80,000 and continues to climb as lastminute totals trickle in, Seidemann added. “I’m really glad that today is here because there’s lots to organize and lots of things that you thought were going to go one way, and then they go another ... and

Meet Bruce! He is a one year old German Shepherd/ Rotti cross who came to us as a stray. Bruce still has lots of puppy antics and can be excitable and loves to play. He would love to go to an active home who will give him lots of exercise and play time. Bruce is very eager to please and will be a fast learner. He would be happy to be a loyal companion, and can’t wait to find his forever home! If you are interested in meeting Bruce please contact the BC SPCA Prince Rupert Branch!


RCMP in red serge lead the survivor lap of the Prince Rupert 2015 Relay for Life. the organizing team, 10 of us, did such an amazing job. I had a couple ladies I gave tasks to and they just ran with it. They blew me out of the water,” said Seidemann. Food, live music, balloons and guest speakers filled the day right until 10 p.m. with the late spring sun setting behind the coastal mountains. Tents of all colours and backgrounds lined the track and inside, the cheers and applause for the day’s heroes lifted every-

one’s spirits on a day when, quite understandably, emotions could run a bit rampant. “It’s different for everybody,” said Seidemann. “Some survivors find this extremely emotional. ... There’s going to be emotion, there’s no way around it ... to be here and support all of the cancer survivors and their families – that’s the biggest goal.”

Prolonged strike ends up with Bull-O-Rama cancellation event didn’t happen. “At this point, we cannot be assured that Tamatik arena will be available for the event and without that assurance we cannot risk the total loss of any more the of society’s cash,” organizer Jack Oviatt said in a press release last Wednesday. The cowboys and bulls come from C+ Rodeo in 150 Mile and there are huge expenses associated with bringing them to Kitimat. Without assurance that the event would go forward, the Society cancelled the event to allow the cowboys to attend other rodeos that


KITIMAT - The fourth-annual Bull-O-Rama, Kitimat’s bull-riding competition, has been cancelled due to the District of Kitimat workers’ strike. The strike has jeopardized access to the Tamatik arena which was set to hold the event on June 13. The competition was called off early to ensure that preparation for the event wouldn’t further drain the Snowflake Community Fairground Society’s resources if the

weekend. The society had no other option, but to cancel the event because Kitimat does not have the capacity to hold the event outdoors, explained Oviatt. “It is a big disappointment for us,” he said. Those that have bought tickets or sponsors who have sent cheques to the Snowflake Community Fairgrounds Society will be reimbursed. This marks the second year in a row that the Bull-O-Rama has been cancelled in Kitimat. In 2014, the society decided to hold-over the event to 2015 because of a vol-

unteer shortage. This cancellation marks a great loss to the Kitimat community. The event brings in approximately 2,200 people from the around the northwest region each year and is a major fundraiser for the community. Mayor Phil Germuth expressed his concern that the community would lose up to $40,000 generated for charity from the event. This years’ event was set to raise $10,000 for the Kitimat General Hospital Foundation to purchase infusion pumps. Furthermore, the Kitimat Ka-

rate Club had signed up to be security for the event, the Figure Skating Club planned to run the canteen, the Kinsmen club was tasked with the 50/50 draw, and the Mount Elizabeth Theatre planned to stage the pyrotechnics. In return, the event was to be a fundraiser for those groups. Any extra profit made from the event was supposed to go towards general upkeep for the Snowflake Fairgrounds. In past years, Bull-O-Rama has included a wild horse race and a fundraiser dance put on by the Northern Spirit Paddlers.

Helping Your Pets Help the People of Nepal As many clients of the Kitimat Veterinary Hospital are aware, I have been trekking in Nepal on two occasions over the last few years. The Nepalese people are a mix of cultures which are predominantly Hindu and Buddhist living harmoniously together. In my experience, the Nepalese people are friendly, generous and kind, in spite of the fact that the average per capita income in Nepal is 730$US. The earthquake, which caused mass devastation on the 25th April, 2015 was 7.8 magnitude with an aftershock on the 26th of 6.7. A second aftershock of 7.3 occurred on the 12th May. ~ Dr. Howard Thwaites


Students from a Northwest Community College environmental monitoring program recently visited the site of Avanti Kitsault Mine Limited’s planned molybdenum mine. Third from the left is mine employee Cory Haizimsque and second from the right is mine employee Arnold Angus.

Students tour Kitsault mine site TERRACE - Eight Nisga’a students taking a Northwest Community College mining program put some of their classwork and training into action recently by touring a planned molybdenum mine at Kitsault on the north coast. The students took ground and surface water samples and took part in sediment and erosion control work at Alloycorp’s Avanti Kitsault Mine Limited project. They were enrolled in the environmental monitoring assistant program through the college’s ex-

ploration and mining school. Instruction over 330 hours included terrestrial and aquatic monitoring, construction and industrial monitoring, natural resource field skills, and cultural resource management. Students also acquire first aid and field safety certifications, as well as job readiness skills. Engineering consultants from the Knight Piesold firm worked with the students as did two employees from the joint venture company Hobiyee-Triton. “Students graduate with a net-

Terrace officials travel to China By Josh Massey THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

TERRACE - Terrace city officials were in China last week on a short notice trip to brief officials from the Qinhangdao Economic and Technological Development Zone on city permitting details for the land it purchased last year at the Skeena Industrial Development Park. The civil engineering company All North has been doing preliminary planning work preparing infrastructure for an alfalfa protein extraction plant, the first of several planned developments on the 1,200 acre section of land purchased by the Chinese interests for $12 million last year. “We flew to Beijing on May 24 and drove directly to Qinhuangdao,” said city chief administrative officer Heather Avison last week who was accompanied by city director of devel-

opment services David Block. Block and Avison were in China in a support capacity alongside the All North engineering team, which includes John Murray from Kelowna, Christina Cameron from Phoenix, Roger Lin from Calgary and Kory Yamashita from Terrace. “All North has been hired by QETDZ/Taisheng to do this work and they want the city at the table to provide information on various bylaw requirements that need to be followed,” said Avison. The trip was not budgeted for in the recently passed financial plan and has not been mentioned at recent council meetings. It is the third trip by the city to China related to the development since 2013, and Avison said they knew a planning trip was necessary in 2015, but not exactly when. According to mayor Carol Leclerc the trip

work of industry contacts to help their transition to employment or act as mentors, and they also gain a realistic window into potential career opportunities,” said college official Danielle Smyth of the monitoring assistant program. It was held in the Nass Valley earlier this year in conjunction with the Wilp Wilxo’oskwhl Nisga’a Institute of the Nass Valley and financed through Nisga’a Employment, Skills and Training, a Nisga’a Lisims Government agency, and the federal government.

also has to do with big vision planning about what and where factories will fit on the land at the development park. “David [Block] is the expert on all the zoning and rules and regulations that need to be done with city staff, and he will work very closely with the developers,” said Leclerc. “Meeting with different companies and seeing what is the best fit. What could fit there.” She said the trip is an important step in bringing a job-creating industrial base home to Terrace. “We want future jobs up there. It’s our industrial park. We want to see that area grow,” said Leclerc. Leclerc said the development won’t happen overnight: “2015 and 2016 are the planning years. 2017 should be the start of the build.” The Qinhuangdoa development zone, through its Canadian investment arm, Taisheng,

has said it wants to have the alfalfa factory under construction by 2017 or 2018. The Kitselas First Nation is in partnership with the city at the industrial park.

These funds will go towards: 1) Helping the people of Marpak Village, Dhading, Nepal, rebuild and repair their homes. 2) Helping a friend in Thamel, Kathmandu rebuild his shop after the earthquake. 3) Helping a women’s co-operative in Kathmandu rebuild after the earthquake.

Worker accommodation plans cause concern in Port Edward By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PORT EDWARD - The first question ever posed to Port Edward council as part of its public question and answer period at the end of the regular meeting agenda took aim squarely at the impact of worker accommodation facilities proposed in the community. “The camps are an issue. I have been reading many articles where there have been sexual assaults and heavy drinking. I myself have worked at camps and we would be pretty naive to think that guys don’t drink when they are in camp,” said Alice Kruta, a Port Edward resident. “There is lots of land just on the highway and I would like to put forward to the council ... if they would have the camps moved out of the community.” Noting the land was sold to Civeo and Quick-

load, the latter of which is leasing land to Black Diamond for a worker accommodation facility, Mayor Dave MacDonald said council wouldn’t be making such a request. “We, as a council, would rather have the camps in town where we have some control and will also get some taxes from that land and the buildings upon it. We felt that was the right way to go,” he said. “As well, there are an awful lot of good people that are going to come. Yes, there are some bad people, none of us are that naive, but that is why there are police forces to take care of problems that you have.” Those sentiments were echoed by Coun. Grant Moore, who said the prospect of losing a high-paying job means many in the camp strictly adhere to the rules. Moore also said he was happy with the information that had been com-

ing from the two companies. “I have met with Civeo and Black Diamond representatives to look over the layouts and the security they are going to be using. I was actually quite impressed, they are pretty top notch. The Civeo one, once it is built, you won’t even look at it like a camp because it is more like a resort,” he said. As well as taxes, MacDonald and Coun. Dan Franzen said having the facilities in town could hold other benefits for Port Edward residents. “They are talking about shared facilities. People may be able to use the gym at the site and they’re talking about putting in a coffee shop that residents could use,” said Franzen. “They’re talking about emergency services possibly being shared and they may have a doctor on the site that might be accessible,”

Concerns about worker accommodation were raised at the May 26 Port Edward council meeting. added MacDonald. He’s also asking residents to remain calm in light of a series of thefts reportedly taking place in the community. “There has been

thievery going on around the municipality and some upset residents are ready to confront people they feel responsible. I think it is important to call the RCMP

and go through the proper channels so you don’t get yourself into a situation you don’t want to be in,” he said. “I have been in contact with Sgt. Uppal at the Prince Ru-

pert RCMP about this and we are working with them.” Prince Rupert RCMP report only one incident of theft reported to them in May.

TERRACE - Terrace RCMP say they arrested two 16 year-old boys and one 17 year-old boy May 29 for a string of thefts from vehicles in the Horseshoe area. “Numerous items have been recovered and we are looking for owners. We believe that this may have been an ongoing occurrence for a while, specifically in the Bench and Horseshoe areas,” said Terrace RCMP Constable Angela Rabut. “Some of the items that we have are numerous keys, PS3 with games, hatchet, IPod, various knives, flashlights, IPod power cables, head phones, various cards, N stickers, and an airsoft gun with bullets,” said Rabut who invited people who have had items stolen from vehicles to contact the detachment. The arrests followed police responding to a report at 1 a.m. today of three males going into driveways on Lambly Ave. and checking for unlocked vehicle doors. “Police began conducting patrols in the area and observed three males matching the description of the thieves on Labelle Ave. On approaching the group two of the boys fled leaving the third holding a bag full items,” said Rabut. “Two people approached police and identified items in the bag as belonging to them and just having been stolen from their vehicles,” said Rabut.

Those left recently homeless discuss struggles on the street By Martina Perry THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT Since the closure of the Neptune Motor Inn at the end of April, a number of the former tenants have literally been left out in the cold. With the community’s affordable housing stock completely depleted, a number of people have been finding shelter wherever they can on the streets of Prince Rupert. At the May 25 city council meeting, Coun. Joy Thorkelson said of the 14 or so people who were residing at the Neptune Motor Inn when it shut its doors, about seven have came through the Fishermen’s Hall to use its services for homeless people. While some were able to find a relative or friend to stay with, Thorkelson said she could name at least five people sleeping in the rough. “I honestly feel like crying when people come in and they don’t know where they’re going to sleep ... What the hell do you tell them?” said Thorkelson. “I might be upset but I get to go home, as do all of us, to a nice warm house and a nice warm bed.” Thorkelson put much of the blame on the government and BC Housing for not providing enough subsidized housing in Prince Ru-

pert. But according to Donna Cairns, BC Housing senior manager of communications, in the past year the agency has increased the number of subsidized units in Prince Rupert from 439 to 472. She also said there are currently 57 applications for subsidized housing in Prince Rupert, 31 of which are from families, 26 from singles and 14 from seniors. Cairns said BC Housing recently met with Prince Rupert mayor and council to discuss housing and said the agency continues “to seek viable proposals for affordable housing from the community to address long-term housing needs”. “We are working with the municipality and our housing partners to determine potential future housing options,” said Cairns, who noted 15 units were made available recently from the refurbishing of the existing housing stock. “In the coming months, we will be looking at refurbishing additional units.” The Prince Rupert Aboriginal Community Services Society (PRACSS) runs the federally-funded Aboriginal Homelessness program in Prince Rupert and is presently trying to manage an overwhelming caseload.

Last week, PRACSS executive director Theresa Wesley said the society has been struggling to fulfill its mandate of providing a leadership role in the implementation of the Housing First Model in the community. “‘House the person first and then take care of everything else’. Well, we can’t even house the people. There’s nowhere to put them,” she said. “Everywhere it’s the same. It’s all full,” said Wesley. PRACSS has been trying to help those impacted by the Neptune’s closure, putting up three former tenants in the Moby Dick Hotel last week with leftover credit. The society also purchased new clothes for the individuals, as they were told they had to remove all of their clothing prior to their stay because of concerns related to bed bugs. After the credit ran out, PRACSS came up with enough money to house the individuals for another two days, until Wednesday of last week. “The only reason we were able to get these three into the Moby Dick is we used some of our dollars. But we’re running out of those dollars. We’re in crisis mode now,” said Wesley. “We can’t leave people like this,” said Tracy Downey, PRACSS justice coordinator. With her frustra-

tion growing, Coun. Thorkelson organized a press conference at the Fishermen’s Hall last week to allow a number of homeless individuals to share their stories. One was William Brooks, who had lived in the Neptune for three years before it closed. His attempts to find housing have been unsuccessful. “We’ve been trying to look for places, but they take one look at us and say no,” Brooks said, adding the rejection has made him feel worthless and depressed. Brooks couch surfed for awhile, but said he got the feeling he overstayed his welcome at the houses of family and friends. When Brooks ended up on the streets, it was an all-to-familiar feeling; he had been homeless previously about three years prior in the middle of winter. “You gotta sleep with one eye open because you never know with these young kids, or even adults ... as soon as you hear noise, you have to get up,” he said. Anne Robinson and Richard White had lived in the Neptune for five years, and, before they were temporarily housed at the Moby, had been sleeping on the street for about three weeks, mainly behind the museum. Robinson said on the

first night it was pouring rain. “We leaned against the back of the carving shed and held each oth-

er,” she said. “He took his jacket and put it around me ... but it didn’t keep me warm,” Robinson said,

noting the couple remained there until the Salvation Army opened for coffee the next morning.

Rodeo went well

Help for Nepal…

NEW HAZELTON - New Hazelton RCMP responded to 81 calls during the week of May 21 to May 27. On May 24 at 9:45 pm, police observed a vehicle traveling on Hwy 37 at 60 kph in a 100 kph zone. A traffic stop was initiated and open liquor was observed in the vehicle. The driver displayed signs of impairment and was instructed to provide a breath sample to a road side screening device. After refusing to comply, the driver was issued a 90 day suspension and the vehicle was impounded for 30 days. On May 25 -at 11:55 am, police responded to a residential fire along Hwy 16 near South Hazelton. Several volunteers attended to assist with the suppression and prevented the structure from burning. The cause was attributed to some paper igniting on a stove. New Hazelton RCMP would like to thank the support of the Bulkley Valley Credit Union and the District of New Hazelton for supplying bike helmets for children that needed them in a recent bike rodeo. Also, congratulations to our DARE instructor, Aux Cst Dean Paranich and the graduating DARE class from Majagalheel Gali Aks Elementary school. With spring turning into summer, police remind bicyclists they should wear an approved helmet when enjoying the outdoors.

Contract awarded for the rehabilitation of Fraser Street By Martina Perry THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - The City of Prince Rupert has awarded a contract for work for the first part of the Fraser Street Rehabilitation Project. The city’s engineering department conducted an open tender process for the first phase of the project, with Adventure Paving providing the lowest and preferred tender bid. The restoration of Fraser Street has been at the top of the city’s list of capital projects for a number of years, with the first phase of the project set to begin sometime in June. “Fraser Street’s road surface, road base, sidewalks, curbs and gutters are all designated as being in poor condition. The utilities have been fully depreciated for many years and are well past any reasonable life expectancy.

The sewer on Fraser Street is rated as the poorest condition of any in town,” said Richard Pucci, the city’s engineering coordinator. The project will be undertaken in phases, with the first part of construction on the Salvation Army-end of the street. “The Phase 1 work is ... from the 6th Street intersection at the lane into Grenville Court all the way to in front of the enrichment society building,” Pucci told members of council last week. Adventure Paving submitted a bid for $1,185,228.56, which is $80,000 more than the city’s allocated budget of $1,105,000 for the first part of the rehabilitation project. To cover the shortfall, the city’s engineering department, in consultation with the finance department, recommended the shortage be funded through the city’s gas tax reserve. Because the

project is being paid for entirely through the city’s gas tax fund, the overage wouldn’t affect the municipality’s 2015 budget. “Currently we have a substantial gas tax fund. It’s about $3 million and we will be receiving approximately another half a million dollars this year,” explained Corinne Bomben, Prince Rupert’s chief financial officer. Businesses in the construction area will not be accessible by vehicle while the work is being undertaken. Pucci said the estimated completion date of Phase 1 of the Fraser Street Rehabilitation Project is Sept. 1, 2015. “We anticipate the Fraser Street Rehabilitation Project will take two construction seasons or two phases. However this is budget dependent,” said Pucci, noting, if next year’s budget allows, Phase 2 will begin in the next construction season.

Eggs take flight…


The first phase of rebuilding Fraser Street will begin shortly.

PRINCE RUPERT - Pineridge Elementary students watched as Prince Rupert firefighter Derek Kormendy threw more than 70 entries off the ladder of a fire truck last week, as part of the school’s egg drop project. Students entering the egg drop designed containers intended to protect an egg from breaking during a fall from the top of the fire trucks ladder, approximately 45 feet up.

PRINCE RUPERT - As the calendar turns from May to June, the focus of many on the North Coast turns to Seafest, which will be taking place from June 1214. This year Seafest will pay tribute to the men and women who volunteer to keep boaters safe on the waters of Hecate Strait. As Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue - Station 64 Prince Rupert celebrates its 40th Anniversary, Seafest will pay tribute to the group with a co-theme of “Saving Lives on the Water”. Seafest 2015 includes three days of activities that includes a mix of new events, old favourites and some big- time entertainment. Among the events scheduled for Friday are the annual Seniors’ Tea, Music at Mariner’s and a blessing of the paddles created by those involved in the Friendship House’s Paddle for Wellness program. Seafest Saturday activities include the Seafest Parade, wagon rides, Soapbox Derby races, a grass volleyball tournament, arm wrestling, a show and shine and more. That evening there will be two venues hosting live music acts as the Lester Centre presents Abba Tribute Band “Arrival” and the North Coast Convention Centre hosts Tina Turner tribute artist Louisa Marshall. Seafest will wrap up at the waterfront on Sunday with events including the Swim for Survival, the finals of the Quick and Daring, kayak fire drills, the sailpast and flypast and the new Harley Riders Rodeo and canoe tug-of-war. The final event of Seafest will be the Sunset Memorial Service.

Yuan slices his way to win at badminton tourney By Kevin Campbell


PRINCE RUPERT - There’s a new men’s singles badminton powerhouse in town, and he wasted no time claiming his first Prince Rupert title. David Yuan, one of the province’s top players and coming to the North Coast from Vancouver, took the second annual Prince Rupert Badminton Tournament men’s singles championship over Jordan Truong on Sunday afternoon, highlighting a tremendous weekend of extremely high-calibre badminton action. The participating players hailed from Prince Rupert, Terrace and even a couple dozen came from Prince George, including president of Badminton B.C. and women’s singles champion, Lisa Davison. “The volunteer base [in Prince Rupert] is fabulous. There’s lots of really keen people intent on making a tournament happen ... Like us in Prince George and anything north of Kelowna, there isn’t a dedicated badminton facility, but you can see we have the same level of really strong players – just more isolated,” said Davison, who runs a junior club in Prince George and brought over 25 kids to the tourney. Yuan, a former assistant coach at the prestigious ClearOne Badminton Centre in Richmond and former head coach of the Capilano University Badminton team, impressed audiences with his drop shots, powerful forehands and de-

ceitful backhanded swings that had his opponents sprinting to the wrong side of the court. For young Truong, it was all he could do to try and outpace the experienced veteran in their finals match. “Jordan is a young, rising player and he has a lot of strength and technique. I think right now, he needs a lot of high-intensity training to refine his skills and strength because right now I’m a lot older than him. So in terms of experience and technique, I think I’m a little bit better and this is why I was able to take advantage on a lot of shots. If he’s able to continue to practice, I can see that he has a bright future,” said Yuan of his opponent. “I think my best shots today were a lot of slices, cross-court drop shots ... I made him dig birds a lot.” Beginning Sunday’s matches at “Court 2” - centre court for the civic centre’s gymnasium in front of numerous spectators were the mixed doubles finals, and Davison and Jonathan Goodkey were victorious over Yuan and Katherine Crossley in a fine match. Following their tilt was a highoctane and extremely tight two games to one victory for Julian Callangan and Thai Pham over Yuan and Steven Liu, with both teams working closely in sync with each other to try and outlast their talented opponents. Then, Prince George’s Clara Froling and Olivia McClair took down Rachael Ernst and Kathy Liu for the women’s doubles champi-

onship, while Davison was victorious in women’s singles over fellow club player McClair in a match that had spectators on the edge of their seats in a hushed atmosphere inside the gymnasium. Yuan finished the day with his men’s singles win over Truong, though the young up-andcomer got his title in the under-19 boys’ division, beating Alex Santos in the final. In the under-19 girls’ championship, Leona Truong defeated Brielle Cooke while Kenadi Stephen and Steve Pye grabbed the under-19 mixed doubles title, topping Cooke and Zak Simpson. Jordan Ho and Braydon Watson claimed the under-19 boys’ doubles title, with Jarin Davison and Simpson coming in second. For the under-19 girls’ doubles champions, Clare Froling and Diane Ayson took out Nicole Wilkes and Kenadi Stephen. Rounding out the weekend’s winners was Brandon Mah claiming victory over Brendan Eshom in the under-15 division on Sunday. “You’ve got some great knowledge [here]. David [Yuan]’s got some great knowledge, the Lius have some great knowledge – there was a real learning curve, but everybody was keen,” Davison added before departing back to Prince George with her junior crew. Organizer Kathy Liu thanked the volunteers and executive committee for organizing the grandscale tournament, and mentioned the third iteration will come next year.


David Yuan won the Prince Rupert Badminton Tournament men’s singles title and came in second in mixed doubles with Katherine Crossley and men’s doubles with Steven Liu.

Huge northwest weightlifting competition returns By Anna Killen THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

TERRACE - This Sunday there are sure to be bodies building on the success of last year’s inaugural weightlifting competition with the second annual Northwest Weightliting Competition at the North Coast gym. A chance for northwest B.C. bodybuilders to test out competition in a supportive, adrenaline-filled atmosphere, founder Adam Yawrenko’s goal of the competition acting as a stepping stone to sanctioned competitions has come to fruition over the last year and he expects this

year will be even better. “My little engine that goes, goes. It’s been quite inspirational for people,” said Yawrenko, of the several competitors who went onto larger, official competitions after last year’s event. “We’re going to have more people participating to go to the next level – and that’s what it’s all about, to get some awareness and enthusiasm. Get people to get a taste of competition.” Last year every competitor broke their personal record. “We’re expecting the same this year. It’s just the adrenaline,” Yawrenko said. The event, which includes

bench-pressing and dead lift categories, allows athletes to see where they’re at. “In a competition atmosphere people can always do better if you’re a competitive person – it brings out that little bit more,” he said. The atmosphere in the gym during the competition doesn’t hurt either. “It’s just such camaraderie,” he said. “Everybody cheers for everybody. It’s not me against you or you against me, people just want you to do your best and do better than you did yesterday.” Yawrenko, who is using the sponsorship money from the compe-

tition to purchase powerlifting equipment for the gym, only wants the best for his trainees and protégés – he’s worked with many of Sunday’s competitors and encouraged them to compete. “I open the door for them and it’s up to them how far they walk through it,” he said. “You have to have heart and that cannot be taught.” To that end, here’s a look at some of the people to watch on Sunday, June 7 – anybody is welcome to attend and “closet trainers” can sign up for the competition on the day. Weigh in is at 9 a.m., with a start time of 10 a.m.

ADAM YAWRENKO Leigh Kasum A 50-year-old breast cancer survivor, one of over 10 women competitors, is new to the sport and has excelled at training. Colton Carrita

Sixteen and in a wheelchair, “he has a great attitude and just loves training.” Yawrenko thinks he can go far. Dawson Kluss Last year’s teen winner went onto an International Powerlifting Federation international certified competition and broke two provincial records. Cindy Leighton Last year’s women’s champ went on to win gold in an IPF certified competition last fall and will be competing in the B.C. championships in a few weeks. Jason Oulette had the biggest deadlift last year and went on to compete in the world championships in Las

Vegas and finished near the top in his class. Also on hand will be Ashley Whittington gym owner and new Mr. BC and best bodybuilder in B.C. this year. Tabatha Kirkegaard, who won 3rd in the bikini competition at the provincial championships and has a ticket to nationals. Smithers’ Dawn Mackay won 2nd in the physique competition at the B.C. championships. She will be there – and may even compete. “There’s some high level athletes going to be attending,” said Yawrenko. “It’s nice to have their presence.”

Tears emails deleted, says former government staffer By Tom Fletcher THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

VICTORIA - The B.C. NDP is calling for an investigation of missing records they have been seeking on community meetings along Highway 16 in northern B.C. NDP MLAs produced letters from a former assistant to Transportation Minister Todd Stone, who says a supervisor deleted emails from his computer to keep them from being considered for a freedom of information (FOI) request. A history of missing and murdered women along the remote highway from Prince George to Prince Rupert led to a series of community meetings last year. Opposition critics have been demanding records from the meetings, and calling for additional bus service along the highway to keep vulnerable people from hitch-hiking. Former executive assistant Tim Duncan wrote to B.C. Privacy Commissioner Elizabeth Dunham May 27, saying his supervisor told him to delete a dozen of his emails in November 2014 after an FOI request came to the ministry. “When I hesitated, he took away my keyboard, deleted the emails and returned the

keyboard stating, ‘It’s done. Now you don’t have to worry about it any more’,” Duncan wrote to Denham. Confronted with the letter in question period May 27 , Premier Christy Clark said records should not be deleted once an FOI request is made. Citizens’ Services Minister Amrik Virk said not every email is considered a govern-

ment record. Stone said he intends to have a “frank” discussion with his ministerial assistant George Gretes about the accusation that Gretes deleted the emails. It was later reported Gretes was suspended with pay. In an email to NDP leader John Horgan’s office, Duncan acknowledged he had no physical evidence of the

incident or the content of the deleted messages. He said he blew the whistle on the Highway 16 incident because his own father was murdered in a domestic incident in 2010, and he believes the families of missing and murdered people “deserve better.” North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice said she was “appalled” when she heard about the al-

are disrespecting the memory of each woman who has gone missing or been murdered along the Highway of Tears.” Duncan was appointed to his job in October 2014. He told the NDP he left “the cesspool that is the B.C. government in March” and reported to Denham that he believes abuse of the FOI process is “widespread and most

likely systemic within the Clark government.” Skeena NDP MLA Robin Austin agrees with the latter statement. “There is a culture of hiding what’s going on in government and this guy finally had the courage to blow the top off what’s going on there,” he said. “It’s disgusting.” With files from Shaun Thomas and Anna Killen.


RCMP suit By Jeff Nagel


VANCOUVER - Women who say they were harassed and discriminated against during their service with the RCMP were in B.C. Supreme Court this week attempting to certify a class action lawsuit against the force. The certification hearing began Monday and the proposed class action would include 362 current and former officers and civilian employees. The case was launched in 2012 by Janet Merlo, a 19-year officer with the Nanaimo RCMP who was among the first officers to go public with allegations.
