■■ Pedal pushers THE BANK of Montreal / Medical Marvels team starts its ride on the Big Bike for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC and Yukon from Market Square June 16. Seven teams signed up to raise money for the foundation and to have fun.

Benefits alliance gathers steam A BID to have the provincial government return a share of northwest resource taxation revenue to the area now has the support of all local governments from Vanderhoof to the North Coast. The commitment of all 21 local governments in the region and the rural directors from its three regional districts will strengthen the case being made by the Northwest B.C. Resource Benefits Alliance, says Stacey Tyers, the chair of the Kitimat-Stikine regional district. “I feel optimistic. The larger the voice, the louder you are,” said Tyers who is also a City of Terrace councillor.

The alliance was formed last year through the City of Terrace and the KitimatStikine regional district with other local northwest governments and it has been adding members since. Its basis is that should large industrial projects take hold in the area, they’ll have an impact on local government services. But since those projects will by and large be beyond the taxing powers of local governments, the province should return a portion of its tax revenue from those projects to help local governments cope with increased service demand and costs. The alliance has already been turned down by the

province for money to continue its work but it now has a letter from Premier Christy Clark saying local government minister Coralee Oakes will be in touch, said Tyers. Having all local governments now as members of the alliance should speed up that contact, she added. “Agreements reached with industry, individual local governments, and First Nations prove that it is possible to be proactive when it comes to the negotiation of revenue sharing for the multi-sector economic expansion now underway across northwest B.C.,” she said. First Nations govern-

ments in the area aren’t members of the alliance as they already have a place at the resource revenue sharing table with the province, she said. “For them, it would be a step backward. What we’re trying to do is get a place at

the table,” said Tyers. The alliance is modelled after agreements between the province in other parts of the province, including the northeast where it has guaranteed annual payments to local governments there. Tyers said the alliance

is following up on a 2013 provincial election promise, since repeated by Clark, for a rural dividend from resource development. Alliance members will gather in Terrace in midAugust to discuss their next steps.

Mother not at fault By MARGARET SPEIRS A CIVIL B.C. Supreme Court case to decide who was at fault in a 2010 car accident has found that the mother of a local teen left a paraplegic was not to blame. Madame Justice Neena Sharma in the written decision of her June 9, 2015 judgment cleared driver and former Terrace resi-

dent Karen Millard for a Nov. 15, 2010 crash on Hwy16 outside of Vanderhoof that left Millard’s older daughter Rheann Armes in a wheelchair paralyzed from the waist down. Millard’s younger daughter, Celin, suffered a broken back but there was no permanent damage.

Planting restores habitat By ANNA KILLEN

IN THE end, it was the biology of trees that helped propel the Kitselas First Nation into action to reforest land along the Skeena River east of Terrace. The Tsimdimaas Tri-Nation Reclamation Project, a move to reinvigorate areas affected by logging and other activity, is the Kitselas arm of the broader scheme that is the TriNation environmental initiative, a pilot project between the Haisla, Kitselas, and Kitsumkalum. It’s meant to see portions of Tsimshian land in the Tsimdimaas area (also called Chimdemash) reclaimed and restored in an attempt to remediate increasing industrial development and provide employCONTRIBUTED PHOTO ment for members. For more than a TREEPLANTER HARD at work at a Kitselas year, THESE the Kitselas took First Nation project eastUP of Terrace. WARM YOUR WINTER WITH

part in community and partner discussions as to the work that should be done. The broad idea was to plant cedar for future cultural use and soapberries and salmon berries. A 20-acre section, however, would not be replanted and instead be set aside while ideas were being developed for everything from a sod farm, field nursery, cattle grazing, cranberry farm, medicinal plants garden or an RV park. But words turned into action when newly-hired Kitselas First Nation economic development officer Calvin Carlick got caught up with the project. He was told that if any replanting was to be done this

year, he had two weeks to put the project into action. “I had to catch up extremely fast because I was under a biological timeline to get these trees in the ground,” said Carlick. Without too much trouble, Carlick hired five Kitselas members and the team spent about eight days in June in the field planting 16,000 saplings over five square kilometres roughly three-and-ahalf metres apart. “It’s a lot of trees when you think about it,” said Carlick. The Chimdemash area, which was logged as far back as the late 1800s and as recently as 2010, is ripe for berries and other uses, with

deep soil that is good for agriculture. Fittingly, Carlick describes this portion of the tri-nation project as the “seed stage” where the group tests things out and sees if there’s potential to start a company using federal money set aside to ease the effects of industrial development projects. Carlick said working with the Haisla and the Kitsumkalum is the most interesting part of the project. “That’s really powerful – especially from a business perspective,” he said. But don’t expect to see berries gathered at Tsimdimaas for sale at local markets or for wide distribution – the project won’t be that

Calvin Carlick large. “It’s more of a showpiece – something you can talk about. Locals can come by and check out Tsimdimaas,” he said. “And based on community feedback they’ve said they’re going to plant some soapberries around the village so the elders can access the berries more easily.”

■■ Officially open A FIVE-UNIT addition to the Tuck Ave. seniors housing complex run by the Terrace and District Christian Council for Social Resources was officially opened June 18 with project coordinator John Van De Velde and mayor Carol Leclerc snipping the ribbon.

Wednesday, June 24, 2015  Terrace Standard

Housing effort stymies city, says the mayor THE CITY of Terrace can’t force a developer to build a housing complex that would rent a portion of its units at below-market rates, says mayor Carol Leclerc. The most the city could do is talk with developer Coast to Coast about its planned 105unit complex on the corner of Park and Kenney, Leclerc said in response to a question following a speech she made at a June 18 Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce luncheon. That corner of Park and Kenney, 2.4 acres, was sold by the city to Coast to Coast for $951,000 last year after the developer offered up the best plan for affordable housing for the property – renting 20 per cent of any units built at below market value to those who met a specific income level. “We can have a conversation with them just to see where things are at with them. I think that [we need to understand] what’s happen-

ing in their world before we go and say we want stuff done,” said Leclerc. Leclerc suggested that the overall housing market might be something that the city would have to speak to the developers about. She was responding to a question asked by former mayor Dave Pernarowski under whose watch the land deal was made last year. But two weeks ago Coast to Coast announced it was putting the entire project on hold until market conditions improved here. And last summer, it hinted that it would build 24 units at first, meaning that at least

four of them would be rented out at below market value. If the city was happy with Coast to Coast’s affordable housing promise, it was also happy with the price it received for the property and set aside $500,000 to stimulate other affordable housing plans. In responding to a follow up question from Pernarowski about the status of the money, Leclerc said it remains untouched. Leclerc said council could consider a partnership with a developer or help affordable housing builders with rezoning or other development costs.

‘Acute need’ for housing By CECILE FAVRON TOO MANY people in Terrace and area have to spend too much of their income on rent and utilities, says the executive director of a provincial non-profit housing association which held a meeting in Terrace on June 18. “In the past 18 months, in purposebuilt rentals – these are not someone renting a room out of their basement – rents have gone up 17 per cent in Terrace,” Tony Roy from the B.C. Non-Profit Housing Association explained. “And the vacancy rate in Terrace between 2006 and 2013 went from 12.7 per cent to 0.4 per cent.” Although vacancy rates have improved over last year, Roy said there remains a critical shortage of affordable housing which is defined as people paying 30 per cent or less of their income on rent. The affordable housing situation in Terrace is rated poor overall by the Non-Profit Housing Association who crunches the provincial

numbers each year. The average rent is $722 per month which translates to 22 per cent of the average income of the renter. This is lower than the provincial average of $988 per month totalling 24 per cent of total income, but the average Terrace resident still spends nearly double the percentage of their income on housing as Kitimat residents do. It is the high rent prices that are making a dent in people’s income in Terrace, says Roy. “An economic boom is generally a good thing for a community,” he said, “but at the same time we have to make sure that residents get their fair share of the [benefits].” The statistics are startling for Terrace which sees 44 per cent of its residents spending more than 30 per cent of their income on rent and utilities. A further 18 per cent of Terrace citizens pay more than 50 per cent of their income to their housing and utilities providers – a situation that is considered critically unaffordable and people may be forego-

ing necessities in order to pay for housing, according to the NonProfit Housing Association. That means that more than 60 per cent of tenants in Terrace are having trouble making ends meets with their high rent costs. Roy explained that the problem in Terrace comes down to supply and the low vacancy rate in Terrace. At least 140 rentalbedrooms are required to meet the demand in Terrace, according to last year’s data on the association’s website. This shortfall ranks Terrace near the top of low vacancy cities in B.C. The problems surrounding skyrocketing rents and a low supply of housing are also forecast to increase over the next 25 years. “Things are going to get worse before they get better,” Roy projected, citing that existing housing livability will deteriorate as rents continue to increase. “Someone from a lower income bracket may have a place to live [now], but it all of a sudden there is a leak

in the basement and they have to evacuate their home, if there are no vacancies ... the only other option is to live in a homeless shelter,” Roy described of a situation he believes will become more frequent in the Terrace area. He also indicated that homelessness is overall more taxing on a society than providing affordable housing. Roy also explained that non-profit groups and policy makers are the ones who can make the most difference in providing affordable housing because the private sector tends to focus on higher end accommodations. “The private sector won’t be the ones who come in and houses people [in need],” Roy said. “Terrace is going to need to find a way to develop affordable housing.” Housing developments of this nature are unlikely to be supported by higher levels of government, noted Roy. “Before 1995, the federal government had a fund for building affordable housing, but over the last 20 years

we have started to accumulate a backlog [of need for affordable housing],” he said. Approximately 60 people gathered in Terrace June 18 for the non-profit housing association-sponsored conference. Those attending included city council members, Terrace mayor Carol Leclerc and Prince Rupert mayor Lee Brain. Roy said the association’s directors felt that hosting the conference here would highlight the “acute need” for affordable housing in the area.

PARKSIDE SECONDARY School graduated about 40 students in a ceremony at the REM Lee Theatre and presented scholarships to several students. Valedictorian Marlee Malinowski received the Rotary scholarship for $500. Robbie Hoving received the Jason Mattenly Memorial Scholarship for $300. Kyrcee Hanson received the Mary Welch scholarship for $300. Colton Woods received the Joan Ceh Memorial scholarship for $250. Kirsten Henry received the Parkside Secondary School scholarship of $250.

Passport to Education scholarships went to: Janine Mercer for $500, Devon White for $500, Dakota Hanna for $250, and Kyrcee Hanson for $250.

The other driver, Claire Singleton, was found to be completely liable for the accident. And it now clears the way for a subsequent suit against Singleton for damages. “...I find that Ms. Millard is not at fault for the accident. Ms. Singleton is 100 per cent liable,” said Sharma in her decision. “An agreed statement of facts was entered into evidence...The parties agreed that the accident happened on November 15, 2010, at about 7 p.m. on Highway 16 between Prince George and Vanderhoof, near Telachick Road. At the time of the accident it was dark and snow was falling,” reads the decision. Millard was travelling east on Hwy16 in her four-door sedan equipped with four winter tires with Celin in the front passenger seat, Rheann in the rear passenger seat and with all wearing lap and shoulder belts. They were driving to BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver where Rheann had a long-awaited appointment for her food allergies. Snow began falling near Burns Lake as the trio continued east and road conditions worsened as they left Vanderhoof. In the meantime, Singleton, in a minivan with only front winter tires, was also on Hwy16, driving west toward Vanderhoof. The justice’s decision stated that while Millard slowed down to no more than 60 km/h, a reconstruction of the accident determined Singleton did not. As the vehicles came toward each other, Millard noticed movement in the headlights of an oncoming vehicle on two occasions, just seconds apart. The second incident of headlight movement was only seconds before the collision. Singleton did not testify at the trial but some of her examination for discovery evidence was read into the record. It confirmed she crossed over into Ms. Millard’s lane just prior to impact, said the decision. An accident reconstruction expert concluded that Millard was driving at a speed of 50km/h and “prior to losing control of the van, Ms. Singleton was driving in the westbound lane at a speed greater than 90km/h,” the decision continued. Just seconds after seeing the second instance of headlight movement of the oncoming vehicle, Singleton’s van abruptly came into Millard’s lane. The van was sliding sideways so that Millard’s car had a head-on collision with the broad side of the van. “I conclude on a balance of probabilities that the movement of headlights Ms. Millard witnessed was not something a reasonable person would view as a hazard,” wrote Sharma. “As to slowing down...she concluded she was already going slowly enough in response to seeing the headlight movement. I find her decision reasonable in the circumstances. Millard said last week that the ruling means her daughters won’t get any money from her insurance. “I never took it personally, they were suing my insurance,” said Millard about the case. “Rheann really needs it and Celin too.” “Part of it is I’m bitter. She’s taken no responsibility about any of this,” said Millard about Singleton. Millard and her daughters will be able to sue Singleton for damages, according to Millard’s lawyer, David Doig. “That’ll be a separate trial,” he said last week. “The two girls were injured and the mom too, so likely it will be two separate trials.” The trial date for Millard to seek damages from Singleton is set for March 2016 for two weeks. The daughters will have to file their own separate case. Millard will be asking for compensation for what she would’ve earned if she hadn’t been injured, Doig explained.

EDITORIAL

Next step ONE of the key cornerstones in moving forward from the federal Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s revelations of the effects of residential schools is improving access to education for aboriginal young people. For all of the criticism laid against the federal Conservative government for any number of real or perceived actions, it did prepare legislation offering up an additional $1.9 billion to do just that for on-reserve schools. In this, credit must be given to Shawn Atleo, the National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations. From B.C., Mr. Atleo was first elected in 2009 and again in 2012. Educational opportunity was – and remains – a passion of Mr. Atleo who found enough common ground to support the proposed legislation. Yet political infighting within the assembly over perceived problems with the legislation soon focused on Mr. Atleo who resigned in May 2014, saying, in part, he wasn’t prepared to be a “lightning rod distracting from the kids and their potential.” Whether there were actual problems with the legislation or whether the situation was exploited by Mr. Atleo’s opponents is up for debate. When Mr. Atleo resigned the federal government said the legislation would remain on hold until it had the backing of the assembly. The federal election this fall presents another opportunity to revisit the issue. And to remember what the goal is about in the first place.

Fight against moss, dandelions goes on

I

n all my years of writing this column only two elicited more reader response than last week’s reporting on my moss killing attempts using an environmentally friendly mixture of one gallon of white vinegar, two cups of Epsom salts, and a quarter cup of blue Dawn dishwashing liquid. I’d be exaggerating if I said the column went viral, but an update does seem to be in order. In my test plot where I sprinkled the mixture from a garden watering can the moss and dandelions are dead, no sign of resurgence, while purple clover, grass and a feathery leaf identified to me as fennel are expanding and cherry seedlings look happy. In the second test spot where I shook the mixture from a plastic jar with many 1/16 inch holes drilled in the lid, moss is completely dead and unlikely to revive. A visitor helped get my gallon sprayer working and with it I sprayed more moss and a line of dandelions with its fine mist. Perhaps too fine a mist. Wherever the mist touched the dandelions are withering and turning brown.

THROUGH BIFOCALS

CLAUDETTE SANDECKI But half the leaves didn’t receive a deadly dose or maybe any of the mixture necessitating a second application. All in all, the vinegar mixture definitely kills moss and dandelions without harming whatever else grows in my yard. Being without a mower for several weeks has allowed new plants to flourish, plants that otherwise were cut down before they flowered. In one corner, where I recall seeding a package of wild flowers years ago, I had a widespread crop of small yellow blossoms. My mower was out three

weeks for tune-up after I tilted it to the wrong side to scrape out a mush of mangled green underneath that I deduced might be hampering the blades. I caused oil to soak the air filter. The poor machine coughed like a senior with emphysema and promptly expired amidst a heavy swath of dandelions, moss, and grasses. A small motor mechanic replaced the air filter, and sharpened the blades. Once back out in the field, I faced poplar saplings 30 inches high with stems thick as China markers. A chain saw would have been in order. After I mow everything, I look forward to spraying the main of my yard with MossOut. That I can do by attaching the hose to the container which then delivers the MossOut. I know from experience several years ago such a treatment will knock down moss so that I can, if I choose, push a lawn mower rather than pull it to keep the wheels from burrowing in the moss. But before I spray I have the interim step of raking up all the clipping gobs and wheeling them to the

S TANDARD

compost pile. Without first raking, the MossOut stands little chance of touching the moss. With the “lawn” clipped, robins can hop about feeding on worms. My Mickey Mantle dog can locate a ball if I pitch it, though he does cough up clippings and spit out mossy bits. Three weeks of no mowing allowed an impressive array of greenery including kinnikinnick and thimbleberries to overrun every unoccupied area. They formed a thick barrier along the fence too high for my dogs to see beyond; they could hear but not see traffic approaching. Nor could they scuffle with strays through the fence. This barrier also had the effect of keeping out stray mini dogs capable of squeezing through tight spaces. The one bright side to helplessly watching invasive greenery grow ever higher and more impenetrable was the indisputable excuse it gave me to stay in and read CBC’s daily computer blog of Duffy’s unfolding trial.

The Mail Bag Remembering Skip Bergsma

NANCY STONE ARCHER PHOTO

SKEENA MIDDLE School concert band under the direction of Susan Brouwer at this year’s school band telethon.

Music has so much to offer Dear Sir: Who doesn’t love music? I have such fond memories as a child of playing in the band at Thornhill Junior Secondary. Some of my best memories of school took place in band practice, concerts, and a road trip I went on with

T

the band to Calgary in Grade 10. I had the privilege of being taught by Mike Wen whom I’m sure many of you know. He was both passionate, funny and inspiring. Music plays such an important part in our lives. Often we hear a

song and it stays with us forever, we remember it just like it was yesterday when we hear it again. It was in my band class where I heard the song Canon in D for the first time. That later became my wedding song. I now have a daugh-

ter in Skeena Junior Secondary in Grade 7 band. She was in Grade 6 band in Thornhill Elementary last year and there she learned so much there with Daryl McDicken. What a lot of work it must be teaching children their first notes!

It would be nice if the elementary schools here would offer Grade 5 band as well (like Prince Rupert does). Anyone who has children that age should strongly consider writing the school board and make requests.

Dear Sir: The loss of Skip Bergsma on June 10 is felt deeply by anyone who had the privilege to work, teach or just chat with him. One of his greatest gifts to our school district was his love of music and strong belief in the value of music education. Skip believed in having music specialist teachers in every elementary school for all students. He was a big reason why I moved to Stewart to teach K-12 music/band, fresh out of the UVic School of Music. Skip helped guarantee quality music programs by having music classes cover teachers’ prep time. When Skip was assistant superintendent of the school district, we had thriving music and band programs in Stewart, Hazelton, Kitwanga and at every school in Terrace/Thornhill from Kindergarten to Grade 12. He recruited enthusiastic, dedicated music educators from BC, Saskatchewan, Newfoundland, and Nova Scotia. These music teachers came and discovered a jewel in the wilderness; a school district with a huge appreciation, respect for, and commitment to music and the arts. Skip remembered. Not just your name, but details around your first interview with him, your family, what you were teaching that year. In conversation with Skip, you felt listened to, respected, valued and wise. He was a true gentleman. During the lengthy teachers’ strike last year, Skip regularly visited the teachers on the picket line at Skeena Middle School, a short walk from his home. Busily retired, yet eager to connect, he shared tales of his recent travels abroad, his time on the Terrace teachers’ union executive and past labour disputes.

Wait until you see the next 25 years

What were you doing on June 22, 1990? If you were a Member of the Legislative Assembly in Victoria, you were raising your hand in support of a motion to create a northern university. It was a simple act that came after an unprecedented social movement in northern British Columbia that changed the course of this region forever. The University of Northern B.C. (UNBC) is 25 years old and our first generation is loaded with stories that describe the successes of our students, faculty, and alumni. We have nearly 12,000 graduates and the majority of them are living and working in northern B.C., contributing their skills and creativity to make our communities better. In fact, the North is retaining about three-quarters of the northerners who go to UNBC and nearly 40 per cent of the non-northerners who attend and graduate from UNBC. And we’re seeing that reten-

tion in the north is increasing over time. The story of UNBC is personified by the story of the Unger family of Burns Lake. In the late 1980s, Wendell Unger was working in construction and decided to join the campaign for a northern university, paying $5 to join the Interior University Society. Some 16,000 other northerners did as well, and today, all of Wendell’s three children are benefitting from UNBC. The two oldest are recent graduates of the Northern Medical Program and the youngest just completed her first year of studies. UNBC has changed their family, just as it has for countless other families around Northern B.C. Samantha Unger participated in our 25th anniversary community celebration by unveiling a display of all 16,000 names that has been installed on campus. Earlier this month we held graduation ceremonies in five northern BC communities, including Terrace. It’s at convocation where you hear stories that

GUEST COMMENT

DANIEL WEEKS you might not otherwise. The graduates have a sense of anticipation at having completed their studies and earning their degrees. They’re very confident in their future, and that confidence is inspiring for the rest of us. I recall the story of a Terrace graduate from a couple of years ago, Janis Donald, that really jumps out for me and illustrates how individuals benefit from the

credentials they earn while at UNBC, but entire communities in the north are benefitting as well. Janis is from the Lower Mainland, Langley, and chose to relocate to Terrace to complete her nursing degree. As she stood on the bank of the Skeena River, waiting to have her grad photo taken, she told us that Terrace “is beautiful. The people have been wonderful up here, and actually I’m staying – that’s how much I loved it.” This is just one type of community connection that will be pivotal for UNBC’s future success. Another will be our connections with First Nations across the North. As the conversation across Canada evolves on First Nations issues, I’m keen to foster that conversation and raise our profile and engagement with First Nations communities. We’re already an education partner with, for example, Wilp Wilxo’oskwhl Nisga’a, the post secondary institution in the Nass Valley.

As exciting as an anniversary is, we want to ensure that ours is about more than examining the present and recalling the past; it must also be about charting a course for the future. Our anniversary is serving as a platform to imagine the future of UNBC, based around integrated academic and budget plans that will be rooted in our mission and grounded by sustainability. The planning process will certainly involve our campus community but it’s natural for UNBC to move beyond our campuses and involve the citizens and communities of Northern BC and beyond. Take the opportunity to be involved in the future of UNBC, just as 16,000 northerners were actively involved in creating it in the first place. UNBC is a tremendous resource for the region, and after 25 years, we’re only getting started. Dr. Daniel Weeks is the President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Northern British Columbia.

A8  www.terracestandard.com

Dear Sir: It is often said that a government is judged by its ability to make the trains run on time and deliver the mail. Sadly, on both counts, this Conservative government has failed Canadians. Cuts to rail inspections and rail safety has had tragic and fatal consequences and the draining of Canada Post’s ability to get mail to the doorsteps of the country is hurting our economy, seniors and those living with disabilities. As home delivery is being cut across the country, Canada will become the only developed country in the world not to have this service. The Conservatives have cried poverty yet Canada Post has turned a profit 19 out of the last 20 years, returning almost a billion dollars back to Canadians. Just last year, in which they did deliver the mail, they made almost $200 million dollars for taxpayers. In fact, the only year in the last two decades that Canada Post lost the money was 2011 when management (with the backing of Mr. Harper) locked out the workers then forced them back to work. A drop-off in letter mail has been more than made up by a surge in packages from Canadians shopping and doing business online. This past week, residents of Terrace found out their home mail delivery service is next on Mr. Harper’s chopping block. Almost 5,400 households in the area are scheduled to lose door-to-door de-

bear the true cost of less service, and in particular seniors and people living with disabilities who get hurt most by shutting down door-to-door delivery. I believe that we should be looking for best practices and examples in other countries who have successfully maintained their home delivery. There are many ways that Canada Post could innovate, become more dynamic, and even increase its revenues, all while maintaining the proud service it has offered to Canadians since day one. I am proud that the NDP has promised to reverse Mr. Harper’s plan for Canada Post if we are elected to government in the fall election – and I am hopeful we can do so before Terracites are forced to lose their home mail delivery.

PRICE EVALUATION AND MARKET UPDATE.

Band is important in schools everywhere. In Terrace we need to do our part to keep this going and have more hours for our kids to practice band in school, and perhaps have them begin even earlier as they do in other areas here in the north. I would like to thank Susan Brouwer for being such an amazing teacher and making sure all kids in Skeena have the opportunity to participate. Danielle Lavoie, Terrace B.C.

From front

Skip Bergsma He commiserated with new teachers and heard their stories. He gave us hope and encouragement. Skip touched the souls of thousands of students through his integrity and dedication to teachers, education, and the value of music in our daily lives. Thank you, Skip. We will continue to learn, sing, play, and listen. We’ll always remember you. Susan Brouwer, Terrace, B.C.

From Page A7 If you saw what I saw at my daughter’s last concert you would not hesitate. Susan Brouwer is the band teacher at Skeena Middle School. The passion and excitement in her voice all year is enough to make any kid want to pick up an instrument and stick with it. To say she is good at her job would be an understatement. She touches the lives of every child she meets with her outgoing and positive attitude and the children adore her, truly they do. After our children leave Skeena they will go to Caledonia where they will be met by yet another amazing band teacher, Geoff Parr. We are also blessed to have Dare to Dream here in Terrace, the charitable organization that provides a band retreat with professional clinicians for all Grade 6 and 7 band students in the area. I attended this retreat both this year and last year with my child as a volunteer and it was truly amazing to see what they learned at the retreat. Dare to Dream also helps to pay for costs for instrument rentals for those who would not otherwise be able to afford to rent an instrument. We should be supporting foundations like this with donations, as our children are our future.

Lookout improved A CREW is at work this month putting in a picnic table and two benches at the top of Skeenaview Hill on the edge of the McConnell E s t a t e s / S ke e n av i ew Lodge housing complex. The seating will be accompanied by an asphalt sidewalk from McConnell Estates to the location, making it easier for its senior citizen residents and those from Terraceview to enjoy the view of the city and area, says city leisure services director Carmen Didier. “The idea came one day when I noticed family members trying to maneuver their loved one, who was in

a wheelchair, out to the lookout,” said Didier. “The family had to lift the wheelchair to reach the lookout and it just seemed like at some point in the future we should do something to make that accessible for folks living in Terraceview and McConnell Estates.” Didier then became aware of a federal program for senior citizens and successfully applied for a $21,125 to cover most if not all of the work. Axis Mountain Technical has been awarded the contract by the city to do the work. Previously, one bench had been located at the lookout area.

The 75-metre long sidewalk connecting the McConnell Estates gateway to the new lookout seating will be made of asphalt. The picnic table is such that it will be easier for seniors and others to use, said Didier. Also to be installed at the lookout location is a story board highlighting the history of the area. Didier said she received the support of Kermode Tourism, McConnell Estates/Terraceview Lodge, the Heritage Park Museum and community historian Yvonne Moen in applying for and then receiving the federal grant.

A PICNIC table and two benches are being installed at the lookout on top of Skeenaview Hill next door to McConnell Estates thanks to a federal grant.

MEMBERS OF the public helped an RCMP officer deal with a 31-year-old intoxicated woman last week. She was located at McDonald’s, yelling and swearing at people, after police responded to a call of a woman refusing to leave the provincial liquor store. The woman fled and when caught, attempted to fight the officer. “The police officer was able to gain control of the person with assistance from members of the public,” said a police report. “Investigation determined that the woman had opened the door of a vehicle that was in the [McDonald’s] drive-thru lineup and demanded money. A man approached and told her to leave the person alone. The woman kicked and punched the man. Charges are being forwarded to Crown Counsel.”

Kimmunity Angels take reins at Sunday market at Skeena Landing By CECILE FAVRON THE SUNDAY Market held weekly at the Skeena Landing might seem like an extension of the popular Farmers Market, but it’s not. The Sunday Market does provide an alternative venue for sellers to market their homemade goods, but the fees paid by the vendors go to the charitable organization that organizes the event. The Sunday Market, although only in its second year, already hosts around 14 regular vendors providing baked goods, homemade jam and honey, and handmade jewelry and other crafts as well as live music. The latest charity to take over the event in Kimmunity Angels – a charity formed in 2014 to provide funds to people in Terrace who are dealing with serious illness. Founder Donna Slavic explains that the name and the charity were formed to honour a friend, Kim, who lost her battle with terminal cancer. The Kimmunity Angels Society took over the Sunday Market at the beginning of June and currently have 10 volunteers to help organize the vendors and set up signage for the event. The $10 fee paid by the vendors goes towards the Kimmunity Angels fund. Slavic is hoping to attract even more people and vendors to the market.

“We want it to be a big event, a place where families can go on a Sunday afternoon to hang out and enjoy themselves. We are hoping to get the word out there to get more foot traffic [and] a variety of [vendors],” Slavic explained. Slavic said that she is really looking to make it a family friendly event and is scoping out potential supporters in the community to provide fun kids activities at the event. Last year, Crime Stoppers organized the Sunday market, but they passed it over to the Terrace Hospice Society this year after they could not find enough volunteers to staff the event. The market in May was then organized by the hospice society, but again a shortage of volunteers prompted them to pass on the project. Diana Wood of the Terrace Hospice Society said that “things were just starting to pick up, people were starting to get to know that [the market] was there every Sunday” when they passed the project over to Kimmunity Angels. “A lot of people wanted to carry on with what they were doing at the Farmers Market and [many people] also wanted to do something on a Sunday,” she explained of the early organization of the market this year. The Sunday Market is held 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Sunday at Skeena Landing between Terrace and Thornhill.

Veteran dentist retires

■■ Uniform history ALAINA HOFFMAN, Chelsey Lukasser and Raelyn Wright tried out some of the past uniforms of the guiding movement during a June 12-14 weekend camp-out. The theme was heritage and the weekend marked the end of the local guiding season. Campers also had the opportunity to make bread, jam and candles. In the weeks previous, local guides traveled to Smithers to camp with guides from around the region and attended a Prince George science fair held at the University of Northern BC campus there.

DENTIST DR. Joe Zucchiatti remembers the patients he saw on his first day of practice here July 1, 1972. “I had a toothache from Bella Bella, one from Whitehorse, one from the Charlottes and one from Burns Lake. I thought ‘Man, what have I gotten myself into.’” And now he can remember the last patient he saw on his last day of practice at just before noon June 12 – a crown and bridge reconstruction. “Much has changed,” commented Zucchiatti looking over his 43 years spent practising dentistry in Terrace. “There’s less emphasis now on extraction.” From Fort Frances in northwestern Ontario, Zucchiatti trained in that province before coming west right out of dentistry school. He had a collection of mostly tourist pamphlets from the region and had Kitimat, Terrace and Prince Rupert on his list of places to visit. He decided on Terrace for several reasons, the first being that the dentistry practice of Dr. Ken McPherson was up

Tree bags conserve water By ANNA KILLEN FOR TERRACE’S new head gardener, this season’s tree watering schedule is in the bag. Seriously. About 30 big, green, rubber bags are now cocooning the bases of the younger trees lining the Grand Truck Pathway, aka the Millennium Trail, thanks to a suggestion from the Terrace Beautification Society and the manpower of the city’s head gardener Eric Lennert and his co-worker Chantale Maheux. “When trees don’t get water, they’re not healthy and they’re really susceptible to infestations,” he said, noting that some trees, especially those at the west end of the popular trail, were pretty dry. The new system will not only keep the trees hydrated in the midst of what has so far been a dry spring but it will save water and watering time in the long run, and keep the young trees protected. It works like this: the 55-litre bags are wrapped around the base of the tree. Once every several days, they are filled with water and, because of the tiny holes along the bottom, it takes about nine hours for the water to slowly seep deep into the ground, drawing the roots with it – kind of like a sponge that’s concentrating water in one direction. That’s important because the goal is to get the roots of the tree to grow down into the soil and not just stay spread out along the surface. Soil, of course, dries from the surface down, “so if you can get the roots down and established in the lower horizons of the soil

then you’ll be able to take the bag out and you shouldn’t have to water the tree excessively for the rest of its life,” said Lennert. Lennert said that he’d noticed the trees irrigation system needed help, so he approached the Terrace Beautification Society. One of its members told him about the bags and he did a bit of online research to find out that they’re used in many municipalities. In Thunder Bay, for example, they line many of the boulevards and residents take it upon themselves to fill them up. Terrace’s gardeners have also pulled the grass back from around the trees – grass is a big water stealer – and have been laying down bark mulch. Those modifications plus the bags should protect the trees from mechanical damage – another issue

as lawnmowers and weed-whippers were grazing the bottoms of the trees. “It’s kind of a combo of getting water to the trees and stopping mechanical damage,” said Lennert of his approach. Lennert has been focused on improving the efficiency of Terrace’s irrigation system since he began the job in March. He’s monitored the sprinkler systems and beds to figure out where the weak or wasteful spots are and begun using soaker hoses in many of the beds. “It’s the most efficient way to water anything – you’re not spraying water into the atmosphere where it can just evaporate, it’s not going into the street or the sidewalks, it’s applied directly to where you need it,” he said. “I’m kind of a stickler for not wasting water.”

More teen luring attempts reported THREE INCIDENTS of an adult attempting to lure a teenage girl into a vehicle in one week have police reminding the public to be vigilant and report any suspicious vehicles. And similarities in the description of the suspect and vehicle don’t necessarily mean it’s the same person nor does the short space of time between all three incidents mean that it’s happening more now than previously. “I can’t confirm that at all. Lots of different vehicle descriptions have been provided and they are all different to some extent,” said Terrace RCMP community policing media relations officer Const. Angela Rabut. In the daily Terrace RCMP release June 15, police reported that On June 13 at approximately 10 p.m., a man described as Caucasian, in his 40’s, heavier set, and brown hair driving a newer model dark blue truck asked a 14-yearold girl walking alone on the new bridge if she wanted a ride home. The girl refused. And on June 7th, a man described as Caucasian, bald, in his mid 30’s and driving a dark green Ford Van approached a 15-year-old girl walking alone on the 4600 block of Haugland Ave. and asked her if she wanted to go and party or grab something to eat. The girl refused. On June 12, Terrace RCMP reported that on June 9 at approximately 8 p.m. a 14-year-old girl was walking through the Tim Hortons parking lot on Keith Ave. when a man in a blue van made contact with the girl. She ignored him. He then asked her if she wanted to make some

money. The girl continued to ignore the man and approached a woman driver in another car and asked for some assistance. The man drove off. The vehicle was de-

scribed as a navy blue minivan, very shiny and newer with a roof rack and items on the roof rack. An item on the roof rack may have been red. The front passenger

seat may have a red rope attached to the headrest. There was no report of the licence plates on the vehicle. The man is described as Caucasian, 25 to 35 years of age with au-

burn wavy hair, two or three inches in length. He has a well-groomed beard. “To say it’s happening more often is not necessarily the case,” said Rabut, adding that

when people are made aware of something happening in the community, they report things more often. If something or someone seems suspicious, try to get as much

information as possible, because the more information police have, the more they have to work with, she added. Police continue to investigate all three incidents.

Boost Your Business: Go Beyond Borders Exploring new markets is a smart growth strategy for business. As a small business owner, you might think that exporting is only for big businesses, or differences in language and culture might deter you from exploring new areas. Though the US receives the bulk of Canadian exports, emerging markets in Asia offer immense business growth opportunities. Diversifying your market will boost your business strength. Here are four reasons to get into the international market: Profits: Exporting improves your bottom line. New markets mean more sales and, with a larger market base, your profits can grow very quickly. According to government data, during the economic downturn of 2012 Canada’s exports of goods and services expanded, thereby cushioning many local businesses against the widespread impact of economic downturn. Risk Management: We all know the cliché, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.” As in life, it applies equally well to your business. Diversifying into different markets can help you mitigate risk. Different countries have different growth rates and being a part of these growth stories makes sense. Being confined to your domestic market opens your business to domestic risks. Competitiveness: The global marketplace is very competitive, and competition breeds innovation. By improving

your business processes and innovating, you not only succeed in the overseas market, but also enhance the value of your business in the domestic market. You need to understand that every market has different demands and that those demands change every few years so it is important to continuously reinvent your business/product/service. Always be market and product focused. Product Life-cycle: Even if your product loses its novelty in the domestic market, you can still find a market abroad where this product can be regarded as new. If you have manufacturing processes in place to create your products, it helps to tap into overseas market to maximize your manufacturing capacity. Exporting is not tough! You just have to prepare well in terms of research, costs, time and commitment to be successful internationally.

WOMEN IN BUSINESS

2015 What is diversity and why is it good for business? Diversity is about embracing differences. These differences can be found in people’s abilities, age, culture, ethnicity, gender, physical characteristics, religion, sexual orientation, or values. But diversity is more than a human rights or an inclusion issue - it’s a profitable business strategy. A business that adopts diversity as a strategy is able to reflect its marketplace, leverage talent, build a robust supply chain and enhance its decision-making and governance. Bottom line: a diverse business performs better financially. There are several reasons why a diverse strategy gives businesses a competitive edge. A new report by Catalyst.org suggests businesses with diverse boards are more socially responsible, which results in “sustainable big wins for the company and its stakeholders.” Diverse companies perform higher with regards to their community impact, environmental responsibility and customer relationships. These measures are essential to small businesses looking for a sustainable link

to their community. “Today’s customers want to do business with organizations that share their values,” says Laurel Douglas, CEO of Women’s Enterprise Centre. “We’ve seen an increase in businesses and educational institutions coming to us for workshops on how to introduce diversity into their organization.” The business case for diversity is well documented. Since 2004, Catalyst has produced studies showing that companies that achieve diversity in their management and board attain better financial results than those who don’t. But diversity need not be reserved for the CEO or board level; companies can also employ diversity as a business strategy at the customer/client level, with employers, and with suppliers. While any strategic shift should align with a business’ overarching plan, there are several ways businesses of any size can make simple changes:

What is diversity and why is it good for business? 1. Diversify your staff. A workplace of employees with different education and experience fosters innovation and increases buy-in, reducing employee turnover. 2. Rethink your marketing. Reflecting the diversity of the marketplace enhances your business’ reputation and rapport with your customers, and helps you build a strong connection with your community. 3. Find a new supplier with a new product to cater to a diverse customer or client base. This can broaden your customer base, lead to lower costs and encourage more responsive suppliers. 4. Assign a percentage of your business purchases to diverse suppliers. Organizations that have made supplier diversity part of their corporate social responsibility practices include Telus, Merck and RBC. 5. Register as a diverse supplier to make more connections. For businesses owned by women, minorities, ab-

6. Assemble a diverse board of directors, mentors and advisors. A group comprised of people who bring unique competencies, skills and perspectives to the table is more effective in its decision- making.

Unit 205 -4650 Lazelle Ave., Terrace Angela’s Hearing Solutions is a new business that opened in March of 2014. We are a local, family owned and operated company. Although it is a new business, I have worked in the hearing health care field for the past 11 years, first alongside the Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists (ENT) Dr. deJager and Dr. Vanlierde. After my tenure in the ENT office I trained for a career in the hearing industry and worked for a hearing company as the primary hearing consultant, and Registered Hearing Instrument Practitioner. In January of 2014 I resigned from that role to start my own dream! We are in our second year of providing the best hearing care possible and solutions that work for each person on an individual basis. Our main office operates in Terrace with satellite clinics that run on Fridays at Delta King in Kitimat, and a clinic at the Prince Rupert Hospital 2 times per month. The Kitimat and Prince Rupert clinics are by appointment only. All appointments are booked through our Terrace office. We are a private company with no government funding. Our governing body is the College of Speech and Hearing Health Professionals of BC. We are a service provider for Veterans Affairs (DVA), First Nations Health (NIHB), and also a part of WorkSafe BC Provider Network. Since opening we’ve had requests for Industrial Hearing Testing, and our office is able to provide a Certified Industrial Hearing Testing Facility. We have an Audiologist available to do any diagnostic tests that may be required. Our vision is to be known as the best provider of hearing products and services for ages 16 and over. Angela's Hearing Solutions is committed to partnering with clients to help them achieve the best possible hearing that can be attained. Our approach is "your hearing is my business" and we will provide a valuable service by identifying client needs and working together to find the best possible solution according to that of each individual. The success of our business will be measured by client satisfaction, repeat customers, and building a client base that will sustain the business. At Angela’s Hearing Solutions we encourage all previous clients and anyone looking for a Hearing Health Care Professional to call, or stop by the office at their convenience. We will always do our best to work with your schedule and are willing to make appointment times for special circumstances.

Timberwolves wrap up impressive inaugural season By MATT LOWNDES THE NORTHWEST Jr. Timberwolves Club Basketball season has come to an end. The Timberwolves, comprised of Grade 10 and 11 athletes from Terrace, Smithers, Prince Rupert, Hazelton and Port Simpson, finished their season with an 11 point loss to the Vancouver Panthers in the Championship game of the Basketball BC Club Provincial Championships two weekends ago at the Langley Events Centre. The Timberwolves finished their spring with an impressive overall record of seven wins and two losses. The Timberwolves advanced to the finals with a thrilling one point overtime victory over the North Vancouver Running Rebels. Caledonia’s Ryan Kunar made the game winning free throw with under a minute to play in the extra frame, and stifling team defence thwarted numerous opportunities for the Running

that saw them hit five threepointers in the second half to pull away with the victo-

ry. The game was highlighted by two Thunderous Slam Dunks by Timberwolves players Gabriel Johnson from Cal and Trent Monkman from Smithers, who cut to the basket and threw down a thunderous dunk over a Panther defender. “For a northern team to come together with limited practice time, and compete at the level that we competed in the Lower Mainland is a tremendous accomplishment. We have some tremendous talent in the Northwest. Every player bought into our team first philosophy and this translated to success on the court. I think it was a tremendous confidence builder for our athletes, as they now know that they can compete with some of the best in the province, and this experience can only help them as they move forward in their high school careers,” said coach Matt Lowndes about his team’s performance.

Bluebacks host meet, swimmers recognized THE TERRACE Bluebacks swam their last official laps of the season recently, ending the year with one final meet and a year-end barbecue. Central to this year was the deepening of the relationship between the Bluebacks and the Kitimat Marlins, with the two neighbouring teams sharing pools for most of the year. When renovations ran long at Terrace’s aquatic centre in September the Bluebacks trained in Kitimat, and when Kitimat’s municipal strike closed the Kitimat pool for over three months, the Bluebacks returned the favour.

T

To that end, the year-end meet scheduled for Kitimat took place in Terrace earlier this month – and the Bluebacks placed second overall with 500 points, beating the Marlins by only two points and the Bulkley Valley Otters by 25. Every Blueback in the meet earned at least four points, so it took an entire team effort to achieve our highest result of the season, said coach Mike Christensen. For the Bluebacks, Renzo Zanardo earned gold, Jake Kluss earned silver, and Anke de Wit earned bronze. Meanwhile, coaches hand-

he BC Lakes Stewardship Society is non-profit organization concerned about the well-being of lakes in our province. To this end, it assists its member groups to conduct scientific water quality monitoring of the lakes they represent. The BCLSS also collects Ice On and Ice Off information. This enables volunteers to gather scientifically significant data that contributes to a data pool that helps develop policy and ultimately contributes to the protection of inland waters in BC. Educating the community by participating in community events, attending school events, giving presentations, and hosting conferences about lake issues are important objectives of the BCLSS. The Society is also involved in many hands-on projects, like shoreline restoration on lakes, throughout the province. The BCLSS held its 17th Annual Conference last September in Terrace, the cohost being the Lakelse Watersheds Stewards Society. I missed the Friday night wine and cheese at the Lake, due to another commitment but paid $50 to attend the Saturday session on behalf of the Northern Branch of the Steelhead Society, with the guarantee that I would recoup the fee when I reported back to them, which, I suppose, I am doing now. A trio of brilliant fall days at a time when this country is full of fish was the perfect time for such a conference. The Waap Galts’ap Longhouse at the Northwest Community College was a good choice of venue made better thanks to the

ed out end-of-year awards at a barbeque last week. Mackenzie Bannister, who had a banner year, was named Blueback athlete of the year and competitor of the year. Rookie of the year went to Chloe Meek, and Aubrey Gingles was named most improved athlete. Erin Billson received the inspiration award. Additional awards were also presented for top attendance, fastest in the 5km swim-a-thon, swimmer of the month awards for May/June, and the team’s annual Skittles awards where one skittle

Mike Christensen is awarded for every second taken off of best times during the year. (Top - Aubrey Gingles with 279 seconds = 279 Skittles.)

Commenting on next season, coach Lowndes has already circled December 5 on the calendar, as his Smithers Gryphons will be traveling to Terrace to take on coach MacKay’s Caledonia Kermodes in the season opener. “It is going to be weird to start the Northwest High school season next year, as all of these players have bonded in a short period of time, and have had experiences that will hopefully stay with them for a lifetime. “One goal of our program was to give everyone a new perspective of the different programs in the Northwest as usually we are competing against each other. It was nice to put on the same uniform and work together. I think it is important to remember that as an isolated basketball region in this province, all of our programs need to work together to grow and build up the game within all of our communities. The stronger each program is, the better it is for all student athletes in this region. We want all of the Northwest programs to be successful. When we aren’t competing with each other, we cheer for each other.”

Casey gave a short history of environmental conflict in the Skeena drainage, touched on the importance of the estuary, and discussed the various ways a concerned public might become usefully involved in the protection of our waterways. Jim Schinkewski of the Pacific Salmon Foundation gave a presentation on where the funding for salmon stewardship comes from and how it may be obtained, but by far the most important and troubling talk of the day was delivered by Dr. Daniel Selbie of the DFO. A distinguished limnologist, who has done much work on declining water quality in Cultus Lake recently, spoke about the effects of water quality on food webs and the ecological relationships in lakes. Dr. Selbie’s presentation highlighted the extraordinary complexities of these ecosystems, and underscored how little we actually know and how much we need to learn about acid rain. Given the tonnage of acid-generating pollution discharged by Rio Tinto Alcan annually, this fact takes on tremendous significance for the health of the drainage and the region. Following Dr. Selbie, Warren McCormick from the department in the Ministry of the Environment that deals with air quality gave a nimble performance of how to duck questions while appearing to answer them. Can the integrity of the Lakelse Watershed be maintained along with economic prosperity? After a day of presentations, the answer to the thematic question posed by the conference, is yes – as long as that economic prosperity is borne of tourism.

Overpass is possible at Hwy16 rail crossing THE INCREASING amount of rail traffic to and from port facilities at Prince Rupert has prompted the provincial transportation ministry to make safer a level crossing approximately 50km west of Terrace on Hwy16. The road approach to and over the crossing is now in the form of a curving ‘S’ shape with rumble strips, a lower speed limit and warning signs. But rail traffic going over the crossing does hold up vehicles and “the ultimate goal is a physical separation of highway and rail to improve safety,” reports the provincial transportation ministry. The ministry also says the road approaches might be improved to reduce the current ‘S’ turn. A drill rig has been working on both sides of the rail crossing last month, taking core samples for whatever construction may be planned. “This work is in the early stages and no design or other planning work has been completed,” says the ministry. “More information about the proposal will be made available when these details are finalized.” And while it does say an overpass or other work at the location is a priority there is no timeline for construction.

Young shoplifters arrested

EMPLOYEES at two stores here were busy last week dealing with criminal activity. At Safeway, a loss prevention officer arrested two girls, ages 13 and 12, for shoplifting. Police also arrested

the girls and they were turned over to their guardians, report Terrace RCMP. Meanwhile, at Walmart, a loss prevention officer arrested a woman for fraud. Terrace RCMP report she attempted to

return items that were not purchased in order to obtain cash gift cards. Police then arrested the woman, 25, and are forwarding charge information to provincial Crown Counsel lawyers.

THANK YOU The Canadian Red Cross thanks the Terrace community group for sponsoring the Nepal earthquake relief dinner May 23. The dinner raised $8,201 which, when matched by the federal government, turned into an astonishing $16,402. The generosity of the group and of Terrace citizens has been critical in ensuring we can be there for those who are most vulnerable and for that, we can't thank you enough.

Human-caused fires a problem A SPIKE in human-caused wildfires in the Skeena region, including one on Terrace Mountain, has left local fire officials frustrated. Six fires in the Terrace, Kitimat, and Nass Valley area were started by people over a span of a week and a half in early June. The problem started with a small fire on the west side of Kalum Lake on June 6 that burned no more than a quarter of a hectare thanks to the quick response of firefighting attack crews. Another fire was discovered along Hirsch Creek near Hwy 37 between Terrace and Kitimat on June 7. Two small wildfires were sparked on June 10, one was nine kilometres northwest of Terrace and the other was near the Rio Tinto Alcan facility in Kitimat. Two more fires, each 0.15 hectares in size were started on June 14 and 15. The first was alarmingly close to home just on Terrace mountain and, as of last week, was still being monitored for smoke and heat by fire crews. The latest fire was on Iron Mountain north of Kitimat. All fires except for the Terrace Mountain fire are out and they are all considered to be human caused, even though the Rio Tinto Alcan fire is still under investigation.

HERITAGE PARK MUSEUM, TERRACE, JULY 1

Terrace Firefighters Annual Breakfast

This event will be held on July 1st at the:

Terrace Fire Hall on Eby St. 8:00am to NOON (or ‘til we run out!) Cost: $5.00/person The firefighters themselves will be cooking up a breakfast feast of pancakes, bacon, sausage and eggs. All money raised goes to the BC Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund. All food and supplies are donated by local businesses - so 100% of the money raised goes to the fund! This is the 18th year for this event. The Burn Fund is dedicated to burn prevention, survivor support and recovery programs in BC. The organization is committed to providing financial assistance for the purchase of equipment, training of medical staff, and the operation of a Children’s Burn Survivor Camp. This fundraiser started when a local family required assistance, it proved to be such a great success that we’ve made it an annual event.

CANADA DAY CELEBRATIONS: JULY 1 – 11:00 A.M. TO 4:00 P.M.

Celebrate Canada Day with horse and hay wagon rides, live music and dancing, multicultural food vendors, historic demonstrations ranging from blacksmithing to horse logging and gold panning, art exhibitions, children’s activities: ring toss & Fish Pond, chainsaw carving, face painting booth, silent auction, and much, much more!
