District planners contemplate plaza to house tree, seating Cameron Orr The Gyro Christmas tree remains standing but still no one knows where it will be months down the road. Despite that, the District of Kitimat has put some concepts down on paper, even if there’s been nothing committed too. The Director of Community Planning and Development Gwen Sewell said there are some concepts that involve the tree in a relocated park space, with the development of amphitheater style seating in the area. Any proposed developments relating to this tree would of course depend on its successful transplant to a new location, a process which isn’t guaranteed if it’s even carried out. The Gyro Club have been responsible in maintaining the tree over the past many years, although the Sentinel has learned that it was the Jaycees club, rather than the Gyros, who planted the original tree in the 1960s. The Gyro Club was expected to meet August 20 to talk about their plans on the tree. Sewell said the District has a potential site at the corner of Lahakas and Haisla, effectively right next door to the Haisla Town Centre, that could be used for a new tree location, “in possibly a plazakind-of location with amphitheater seating to allow other events to occur that space.” The tree will eventually have to go one way or another to make way for road access to the Haisla Town Centre development at that location.

Police warn against multiple scams August 10 The Kitimat RCMP received a complaint from an individual who felt that he was the victim of fraud. The person stated that he had completed a transaction online in order to obtain a loan. Money was sent to the corporation, only to later determine that it was not a legitimate business and the money sent is now unrecoverable. Police are suggesting that the public only deal with legitimate financial institutions for loans and transactions. August 13 A report of a trailer theft was called to the police, when a black PJ cargo trailer, which had been used to hold a water tank at the Kitimat Snowflake Grounds, had been taken sometime over the past few days. The water tank had been removed and left at the grounds.
There was no licence plate on the trailer. August 14 A pick-up truck was reported stolen (seen below) and later discovered lit on fire. Police say they believe the vehicle may have been left unlocked with a spare key inside it. The truck was found August 17 when police and the fire department were called to a vehicle fire off of Kitamaat Village Road. Police say individuals well known to the police were located nearby but the investigation is ongoing at this point. Police responded to another fraud report, this time a telephone scam. They say the complainant says they received a call from a person purporting to be from the Canada Revenue Agency, attempting to scare them in to paying a fictitious
debt. The complainant, police say, felt obligated to send money through a well-known third-party money transaction corporation to an individual in Edmonton. The complainant admitted to doing so, but felt that this method was not authentic
and called the RCMP prior to sending more money. The scam is common enough that the CRA has an extensive website detailing their concerns on others using their name to extort money. For information on scams or to report deceptive telemarket-

Bulkley Valley resident Rod Taylor, the leader of the Christian Heritage Party, isn’t running in the Skeena – Bulkley Valley riding in this federal election. Instead Taylor, elected as his party’s leader last fall, is running in the nation’s capital in the Ottawa WestNepean riding. “I thought it important as leader to bring the [Christian Heritage Party] message to the Capital Region,” said Taylor today. Northwestern party members are expected to choose their candidate for this riding early this week. Taylor has run as the party candidate in the 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2011 federal elections. In 2011 he received just under 3 per cent of the vote. Taylor’s new riding was represented by John Baird who, until his resignation earlier this year, served in several senior cabinet posts in the Conservative government.
Office opening Skeena-Bulkley Valley NDP candidate Nathan Cullen has opened his campaign office for Kitimat, which is on the third floor of the Century House building (where RBC and BMO are located.) His office opened August 18. Conservative candidate Tyler Nesbitt has made no commitments to a Kitimat campaign office. His media representative says there is discussion ongoing whether volunteers in the campaign want a Kitimat office or would rather work out of a Terracebased office. She said they should know sometime this week which direction they’ll go.
Councillor responds to union request Cameron Orr Councillor Mary Murphy is still encouraging people to attend the annual union-organized Labour Day picnic, even if Kitimat Council has been specifically excluded from the event. Murphy asked for the letter from Unifor Local 2301, included in the August 17 council agenda package’s information packet, to be brought out under new business so she could speak to the issue. The letter is the one, signed by the local Unifor Business Agent Martin McIlwrath, which says the
Local 2301 executive has motioned to “not allow Kitimat Mayor & Council to attend our 2015 Labour Day picnic event.” No one from Local 2301 has so far responded to the Sentinel’s request for comment, and we were told last week the entire executive was away on union business and unreachable. An effort to reach Local 2300 also did not result in a returned phone call prior to our press deadline. In reacting to the letter at the August 17 council meeting, Murphy said that as much as she’ll respect the
She also highlighted her own history in establishing the picnic as an event in Kitimat. “I plan on following their wishes and not attend but I did want the community to know I was instrumental, along with many of my family members, of making that day a success. It’s advocating [improved] working conditions for labour and it’s a really good social and educational event. It’s in the honour of labour.” Mayor Phil Germuth said he hasn’t had much conversation with 2300 members on this issue but he has had a few words with

2301 members. “I’ve heard through the grapevine that some of  workers weren’t happy [with the letter],” he said, but said he’s had a number of 2301 workers come by and all have been quite upset over it. His contact with the 2301 executive itself has been limited since the release of the letter. Germuth recalled what he felt was a very cordial conversation he had with 2301 president Sean O’Driscoll at Rio Tinto Alcan’s first pour special event in July where relationship building was brought up, but that was it un-
til he learned they wouldn’t be invited to the picnic. “We had a good time. We talked about building the relations,” said Germuth of that event in July. Germuth also encourages people to attend the event and to not shut it out due to this current controversy. “We’re not advocating anyone boycott it. You should go out and have a good time,” he said, adding that he understands it’s an executive-specific decision and he isn’t holding any hard feelings on this to the general 2301 membership.

Monthly break down of crime stats Cameron Orr Police statistics continue to show a year generally down from the last in terms of crime files. There were two sexual assault files opened in Kitimat in July, down two at the same time last year. There were five assaults with a weapon files opened for July as well. Sgt. Graham Morgan said two related to riverbank assaults, another file referred to an assault against dirt bikers on Kitamaat Village Road, another was a domestic file and in the fifth the person did not want to lay charges. Vehicle thefts are on par with this time last year at 10. There were four cases in July, versus three cases for the same

month last year. There was a single drug trafficking file for July, and two cases of marijuana possession. Drug trafficking is just one file short than what it was the same time last year. There were 10 total files in 2014. There have been very few bear calls for the RCMP this year, but with the animal calls they are receiving (four in July) mainly are to do with dogs. “The animal calls mainly consist of dogs left in vehicles on hot days... or dog bites,” said Morgan. There were 43 traffic tickets handed out for the month of July, and 64 warnings were issued as well. K

Ugh Wasn’t sure what other word to use to describe the mess of Unifor 2301 not inviting the mayor and council to the otherwise public picnic the union hosts ever year on Labour Day. So, ugh. Now to start off, there is the very important distinction that 2301 is not 2300. 2300 is the union which was on strike this year over their contract with the District of Kitimat. 2301 represents employees at Rio Tinto Alcan. Brothers and sisters under the Unifor banner, but separate entities. So 2301, again, not the Local which went on strike this year, said in a letter that due to the strike — which wasn’t specifically theirs — they’ve decided to not allow mayor and council to attend the event. To prove they’re serious, they said they were going to alert the RCMP to their decision. (The RCMP wouldn’t confirm if they’ve received any notices or requests from the union. Even if they have, I’m not expecting armed officers at the picnic entrance or anything.) Now, 2301 did get involved in some ways with the labour strike. Then-2301 President Rick Belmont wrote a letter to the editor to the Northern Sentinel during the time on the matter, and 2301 did offer up a bunch of support during the strike, which lasted over 100 days. Understandable, they’re all Unifor and naturally would support each other. Except 2301 has apparently gone rogue. While comment from 2300 is as silent as 2301 has been over the week, word on the street is that 2300 workers are silently shaking their heads and certainly muttering other things under their breath over the decision to outwardly ban the council. Begs the question who really pushed to formalize this exclusion, and why? Why couldn’t 2301 just pick up a phone and tell the mayor “hey, things are still a bit warm from the whole thing, would you mind encouraging the council not to come?” In fact, outwardly inviting council to the event would have shown great character. My hunch is a council-rep would have showed up, made a few comments about solidarity, and quickly bolted. All would have been fine and normal. In the infamous Unifor letter, it reads that the picnic “[showcases] all of the benefits that organized Labour brings to our community and society in general.” By kicking council to the curb (and bringing police in to the picture) the 2301 has shown they’re not looking to make any improvements to “society in general,” they’re holding on to grudges when everyone around them would rather move on. This is peace-time, 2301. Lets not forget that. Cameron Orr
The legacy of City Centre Hardware When you are already in British Columbia the urging to “go west, young man” is redundant and in post World War II B.C. the best direction to turn for new opportunities and adventure was to “go north.” In 1957, a young Japanese-Canadian couple with north stars in their eyes were James (Jim) Hajime Wakita and his bride Mihoko (Miyo) Wakita. Not long after their wedding in Revelstoke, in 1956, the couple began the journey to the fledging industrial community of Kitimat, the head of the Douglas Channel, where the then-Aluminum Company of Canada, Alcan, had launched one of the largest aluminum smelters in the world, along with B.C.’s newest planned city. They had relatives in the town who had started a business a month earlier, a clothing store and Town Cleaners. The young couple took space in the first section of the new town’s City Centre Mall and established a new hardware and gift business, City Centre Hardware. The business developed and pros-

pered and eventually in the mid-1980s moved from it’s crowded mall location to it’s larger current space between Century House and the old Kitimat Arena. But for 58 years, City Centre Hardware, which is now Home Hardware, flourished as a town business icon. Jim Wakita established JW Construction which was incorporated as JHW Construction in 1975 and contributed greatly to the early development of housing in Kitimat. Jim died in 1980 and the business is carried on by his sons, Brian, Rick and Allan. Miyo Wakita, from a fishing family in Steveston, became known popularly in the community as “Mrs. Wakita,” worked tirelessly in her two proudest roles, as owner of her hardware business
and as mother to her seven children. Three in the same year, 1957, the year the business was started: son Brian, 58 and twins Rick and Ron, 57. Yet she was successfully able to juggle the two difficult roles of running a busy six days a week retail business and raising a large family, while in her spare time sewing extensively for Sears, which had a large retail presence in early Kitimat. But now, Home Hardware, the former City Centre Hardware, is closing its doors shortly, and that will leave a large hole in the Kitimat retail business community. The Wakita family raised seven children in Kitimat, all of whom branched out in different endeavours and some who moved to different locations. Allan is now in Campbell River, Lloyd in Vancouver, and Eileen is in Castlegar helping to spread some of the 17 Wakita grandchildren around the province. Continued on page 5

Double standards in leadership Dear Sir, Recently in Quebec the “Prime Minister in Waiting” [Mulcair] threw many below the belt punches at the Prime Minister and his economic record, repeating himself over and over again. Yet what about Mulcair’s dual citizenship? It is worth to note that the PM-in-waiting has no federal record on his ability how to govern. However there are quite a few
samples from the party’s Provincial Premier’s that left deep scars of mismanaged economies and not very high moral grounds as he likes to talk about. Media is quiet about it. For example: Alberta to date since last election lost some 26,000 jobs. Is this the PM’s doing? Historically the BC NDP government’s had impotence to defend clear cuts, fiscal mismanagement of Prince Rupert
pulp mill that led to the closure of the mill, and total collapse of the forest industry. Some 10,000 jobs were lost in the Pacific northwest. One of the strongest provincial union’s was decimated. Resignation of the cabinet minister for taking the advantage of the client. Resignation of the Premier.
Hardware Continued from page 4 Miyo Wakita retired over the past two years and has now made the decision to close down the highly popular business but earlier this spring she achieved a life-long ambition by taking a 15-day trip to Japan, covering the country from tip to tip, Osaka to Owinawa. A highlight of the trip, accompanied by daughters Delphine and Eileen and her youngest granddaughter, Zoey, was to her ancestral home in Wakayama, where she was able to meet with members of her distant family, including a now 92-yearold cousin whom she met once before in Vancouver in Expo year, 1986. “My husband Jim always promised to take me but it never developed but I achieved that goal this year, and it was a wonderful trip,” she said. Mrs. Wakita says she has always enjoyed her time in Kitimat and wishes to thank all of her customers and so many friends who helped support and encourage her over the 58 years in business. “It has been so enjoyable getting

to know so many people and so many new people over the years as the population changed.” Her own contribution to Kitimat as a supporter of local sports and recreation is also well known and she was honoured as “Business Woman of the Year,” in 1987. Another honour, which went to her husband, has been on display for years in the store, an award from the Gibbs Fishing Lures company, for naming one of its most popular and famous lures of the years, the Kitimat lure, still a huge favourite among local and visiting fishermen on the Kitimat River. I need to thank Mrs. Wakita personally, as one of the first, if not the first sponsor the Kitimat Ice Demons Senior Men’s Hockey team, which she has supported annually since 2002. She rarely misses a Demons’ game and most of the fans know the row of seats she occupies, just above the home players bench. She’ll still be around town and for that we will all be pleased.

Summit ends with renewed commitment The summit of the Northwest B.C. Resource Benefits Alliance concluded over the August 15 weekend, and re-affirmed their efforts to receive a fair share of an anticipated $35 billion generated within the Alliance’s geographic area. That area incorporates 21 communities within the Kitimat-Stikine Regional District, Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako, and Skeena-Queen Charlotte Regional District. The Alliance formalized their goals through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding and established the group’s executive board. Kitimat-Stikine regional district Chair Stacey Tyers is now also the Alliance’s Chair. According to the Alliance through a media release, the members who attended the summit were advised that the province “has the necessary financial resources to address the many community impacts of economic development.” It goes on to say under a “moderate” economic scenario, Perrin, Thorau & Associates Ltd. has forecast 49 major projects in the area that would generate $35 billion over 25 years. A three per-cent revenue share, the Alliance says, would mean $1 billion for communities’ needs, such as infrastructure development. Urban Systems reported that the Alliance’s local governments have immediate infrastructure needs of well over
$500 million. “The summit resulted in the development of three priorities: addressing infrastructure needs, mitigating
social impacts, and developing a legacy fund so that we can look forward to a sustainable future,” said Tyers. Revenue sharing
negotiations with the province are intended to address these priorities, leaving communities better off through a legacy similar to the

Liberal candidate A Village of Telkwa councillor has been chosen as the federal Liberal candidate for the Skeena – Bulkley Valley riding in the Oct. 19 federal election. Brad Layton was named as his party’s candidate at a nominating meeting held in Smithers. Layton, who works in the forestry industry has also just started his second term as a Telkwa village councillor. He was the only candidate to seek the Liberal nomination. “I can see our quality of life – being the middle class – declining each year [and] I’m worried about my daughter’s future,” Layton said of his decision to run.
“[Liberal party leader] Mr. Trudeau has expressed a lot of views that I follow myself and beliefs that we can have both a strong environment and economic development – we need this development in northern B.C.” A long-time northwest resident and Liberal supporter, Layton came to the Bulkley Valley in 1987 and got involved in local and provincial politics starting in the early 2000s. He has worked for Pro-Tech Forest Resources as a forest technician for 29 years and was first elected to Telkwa village council in 2011. - With files from Cécile Favron
Grants to charities Gyro President Mike Steponavicius at left with the Kitimat Hospital Foundation’s Doug Thomson, as the Gyros presented KGHF with a $5,000 donation. Submitted
IV pump donations The Kitimat General Hospital Foundation continues to receive community support through a number of donations. Recent large donations are going towards a goal of purchasing 10 IV transfusion pumps for the Kitimat General Hospital. The Foundation received $5,000 from the Kitimat Gyro Club, which will be used directly to purchase an IV pump for the hospital’s emergency room. The Foundation looked to raise $50,000 in total for the pumps, which will be used in emergency, home care and acute care. The Foundation also received a $10,000 donation from LNG Canada, which put them over
their $50,000 goal for the year. “The funds received from LNG Canada was a much needed addition to meet our goal to purchase 10 state-of-the-art IV Infusion pumps for Kitimat General Hospital in 2015. The support received from community organizations, businesses, industry and private individuals, is very heartwarming and goes a long way to ensuring we have the best healthcare possible in the Kitimat region.” The Kitimat General Hospital Foundation’s mandate is to raise funds to be used specifically in the Kitimat General Hospital and Health Centre, and all donations large or small will benefit everyone in the community.
A program of Envision Financial has handed away $357,500 to charities in B.C., including to some in Kitimat. Envision Financial’s Community Endowment Fund will hand out 33 grants in total to organizations geared to delivering programs to vulnerable people, the company says in a media release. “There are so
many worthy projects and organizations and I’ve seen firsthand the difference these grants can make,” said First West Foundation’s Executive Director Seline Kutan. “Helping local charities deliver muchneeded community programming is very rewarding.” The company says $8,000 was given to the Kitimat Child Development Centre As-

LNG source of loud horn Cameron Orr Many people were left confused by a repeated, loud horn sound going off last Thursday. The horn began going off shortly after the noon hour and repeated for approximately 15 minutes. The culprit? LNG Canada. Nothing was going wrong though. The company says the horn was nothing more than a fire drill taking place on their site. Specifically the company says it was an emergency evacuation/muster drill. The company says they hold between four and eight such exercises a year which cover medical emergencies, security breaches, and other such scenarios. The drills aren’t always ‘live’ but do include table-top exercises too.
Fixin’s for a cause A fundraising barbecue was held on August 18 at the Upper City Centre Mall, which sought to raise money for the Better at Home program, designed to provide services for people unable to easily get out of their homes. Over $1,000 was raised at the event which included local politicians, the RCMP, fire department and a number of other community members. Cameron Orr

No smoking, and mind your sign too Cameron Orr Remember, you can’t smoke near doorways. That’s a message the Kitimat Downtown Design Panel wants to get out, following their August 6 meeting. The minutes of their meeting show the group has moved a recommendation that the Director of Community Planning and Development write to businesses reminding them of the regulations of smoking near doorways. Further they also want Mr. Mikes, Overwaitea, Shoppers Drug Mart and Home Hardware to be advised to keep their garbage areas maintained. The minutes show panel members in particular noted the need for
Mr. Mikes to better maintain their refuse, given they’re along a pedestrian path between Mountainview Square and City Centre. The panel at the same meeting also heard from Jerry Minni, the owner of City Centre Mall and who is developing the new hotel at the mall, under the subject of signage. Minni told the panel that the proposed sign for the mall did not incorporate individual lettering, which is the guideline for downtown design. Minni said it would be an “onerous venture” to follow the guidelines in this case. It was also noted at the meeting the guidelines are only suggestions.
The panel still recommended to the community planner that she request the applicant to provide a sign that either meets guidelines or that provides a compromise, such as the sign that Envision currently uses. Kitimat Council will expect to receive a staff report regarding those recommendations soon and will direct staff on how they want to proceed. Mario Feldhoff said he looks forward to the discussion and to learn more about the costs and challenges of certain types of signs. “I certainly don’t want to be discouraging business but at the same time want to respect our downtown design panel recommendations,” he said.

North West RC club driven to reality Cameron Orr The Northwest RC Club is a reality. A club dedicated to remote-controlled vehicles has taken off, on an effort largely based on the work of Kitimatian Jeremy Dewalt. Dewalt earned Kitimat fame in February this year when he recorded the effects of Kitimat’s huge snowfall using his quadcopter. (Which he notes he has recently sold to make way for a new model.) What the club needs now though is public spaces. Up to now they’ve been using a member’s backyard, but since it’s private property there are scheduling and liability challenges. Dewalt said that will change soon though as the club will open up a public space at the Thornhill community grounds soon. They recently given permission to use some space there, where they will put up signs, posts, and of course a race track. They are also pushing to get space in Kitimat too. What Dewalt is looking to do is rede-

involved as often as he can. “It’s all about the family,” he said. That plays out in the statistics too. He said about half of the RC community is under 17-years-old. He’s looking to grow the club to, for instance hosting intra-
club events with others in the province. Dewalt says he has about 14 working vehicles in his fleet, with another dozen or so ‘projects’, or one-day to be working vehicles. You can learn more about the club through social media at North West R/C Club.

the District of Kitimat and the school district, he says. The club recently began taking paid memberships as a way to kickstart their finances, and Dewalt said there are already 20 paying members. As well there are five people on the club
