Skin Tyee First Nation has no plans to open it as a casino

FLAVIO NIENOW

Burns Lake’s downtown core will soon become more appealing since Skin Tyee First Nation (STFN) has purchased the Lakeland Hotel and plans “major renovations and upgrades.” “The hotel was in rough shape and should have been renovated years ago,” said STFN Chief Rene Skin. The building was purchased by Skin Tyee First Nation Resorts Inc., a company owned by STFN. The hotel has already been closed while crews prepare the building for its renovations. The Lakeland Hotel, first built in 1953, was once considered people’s favourite breakfast place. The STFN took this into consideration when they planned a new restaurant with a breakfast theme. The new hotel will also have a sports pub and grill with a stage for performances of local musicians. Expected to reopen in the spring of 2016, the hotel will have a First Nations theme,  including a gift shop for local First Nations artists to display and sell art. The hotel will have its mechanical and electrical systems replaced and brought up to code. In addition, the downstairs lounge will be renovated ...see LAKELAND

Colleymount residents send petition to minister Todd Stone The petition will be sent along with a traffic road count  

FLAVIO NIENOW In the story ‘Colleymount Road petition has gathered 600 signatures’ published in the Lakes District News’ Aug. 19, 2015 edition, Colleymount residents had hoped to collect 1000 signatures before the end of August for a petition to improve conditions of Colleymount Road. The group of concerned residents, known as the Colleymount Road

working group, was close to reach their goal, gathering 929 signatures. A package is now being sent to Todd Stone, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, including the petition, letters of support from residents and photos of the road. Eileen Benedict, Director of Electoral Area E for the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako, will personally deliver the package to minister Stone during a meeting this week in Prince George. The package will also be sent to John Rustad, MLA for Nechako Lakes, and Nathan Cullen, Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP. In addition, the package will include the results of a traffic count conducted by the Colleymount Road working group earlier this month. According to the group, during  a 12-hour road count, 281 vehicles ...see COLLEYMOUNT ▼ P3

council was, “What is in our plan to make the streets last as long as possible?” “We have engaged a crack sea sealing company to give us pricing for the spring of 2016 to try and get ahead of the cracks,” answered village staff. “Currently all of our budgets have gone to pothole repairs and paving patches as our asphalt deficit is large.” Another question from council was, “With the amount of traffic that utilizes Eighth Avenue to Carroll Street and Center Street to the hospital, how much would life expectancy be reduced by simply re-surfacing the existing infrastructure?” Village staff answered that, if base repairs and storm systems are not completed as part of the project, asphalt life could be reduced as much as 50 per cent or 13 years from a life expectancy of 25 years. Council was also curious about interest rate risks associated with borrowing funds. Village staff explained that all borrowing is done through the municipal finance association (MFA). “Each new issue is for a 10-year term, meaning the interest rate is locked in for 10 years. After 10 years, the rate is locked in for five-year terms until completion. The current rate for a 25-year term is 3.5 per cent and the MFA has a history of very stable rates.” In addition, council asked staff if there had been precedents of a regional district helping pay for projects such as the Eighth Avenue/Center Street corridor. Staff said there are no precedents regarding regional district residents paying towards municipal infrastructure projects. “We have canvassed most of the regional districts in the province and have found no instances so far.” ...see GRANT t P8

Road safety is being ignored says group

COLLEYMOUNT from t P1 travelled the road carrying 371 individuals. “Looking at these numbers, over a five-day period from Monday to Friday, there would be 1405 vehicles transporting 1855 individuals,” explained Rita Lavoie, member of the Colleymount Road working group. The traffic count was conducted at the junction of Hwy. 35 and Colleymount Road from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sept. 3; and from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Sept. 4. This traffic count did not include logging trucks. A traffic count conducted earlier this year by the same group suggested that there could be up to 65 logging trucks per day travelling along the road. “When you look at this road, there is no way that, with the number of logging trucks we see every day, we can keep the road in shape year after year,” said Lavoie. The Colleymount Road working group is now starting a letter-writing campaign in the hope that politicians will start paying attention to their concerns. “We will be asking people to give their mailing address in the letters and to request that Todd Stone respond to their concerns,” said Lavoie. The group expects that the letter-writing campaign will take at least two to three months. “So in the next few weeks we will move into the letterwriting initiative and await a  response  from minister Todd Stone.” Colleymount Road extends from Francois Lake’s ferry landing to km 54 (west corner of Francois Lake). According to residents, safety issues include a major increase of commercial and non-commercial traffic; narrow, blind corners and sloughing on both road portions and embankments. In addition, there are maintenance concerns relating to snow removal, sanding, grading and brushing. In the letter recently sent to minister Stone, the group acknowledges that Lakes District Maintenance (LDM) and ministry contractors have been trying to maintain the road to

However, the letter refers to the work done as “temporary” and “Band-Aid.” According to Lavoie, the recent work done by the LDM to repair the road is already showing problems.   “One can see the potholes and rough spots showing through the seal coat and gravel,” she said. “Next year will see a need to clean up the same areas, the same potholes, the same sloughing,” reads the letter sent to minister Stone. “And the issue of safety, beyond road maintenance, continues to be ignored.”

Colleymount Road working group criticizes visitor centre

3

The Colleymount Road working group has criticized the Burns Lake Visitor Centre for their promotion of Colleymount Road. The visitor centre has been encouraging visitors to do the so-called ‘Francois Lake circle tour,’ driving along Colleymount Road. “It is hard to believe that at the same time we are trying to get Colleymount Road fixed, the visitor centre is promoting more traffic,” said Rita Lavoie, member of the Colleymount Road working group. “Disaster is on the horizon as recent visitors will tell you when they met a logging truck and had nowhere to go but in the ditch as the road was too narrow to pass.” Susan Schienbein, Burns Lake and District Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Centre Manager, said tourism is an important contributor to the economy of the Lakes District.  “The Francois Lake circle tour has been a local asset marketed for many years,” she said. “This route allows us to keep many visitors to the Lakes District extending their stay in the community for an additional day.” Schienbein said visitor centre staff has been on the Colleymount Road this year to assess the road conditions to better advise visitors. She said all visitors are urged to use caution; advised that the road is used for industrial traffic; provided with a resource road guide pamphlet; and are encouraged to do the circle route starting on the Southside and travelling along Colleymount Road in the same direction as loaded industrial vehicles back to Burns Lake. Greg Brown, President of the Burns Lake and District Chamber of Commerce, said the chamber is also committed to lobbying for improvements to Colleymount Road. Brown said the chamber has already co-hosted a meeting with the ministry of transportation and Colleymount Road users. In addition, the chamber has held a lunch with minister Todd Stone and has written letters of support for the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako to assist them with their lobbying efforts for increased funding. “This road is critical for our members in multiple sectors of the economy and we’ll continue to support our members,” said Brown.

Trusting your intuition

Do balanced budgets really matter?

When I first went to university, I chose to study business management (don’t ask me why; even my lemonade stand had failed terribly). During one of our classes, instead of learning about calculous, marketing and business plans, our professor started talking about intuition (for several minutes I thought I had entered the wrong class). In fact, he devoted an entire class for the subject. I was a bit confused at first. I used to see business management as something entirely logical and pragmatic, based on numbers and market projections. I would never have imagined that it would have anything to do with intuition. Furthermore, I would never have imagined this topic being brought up to class. But there I was, learning about intuition during my business management class. And guess what, it was fascinating! To approach the subject, the professor quoted Steve Jobs, Co-founder of Apple Inc. who died in 2011. Jobs had learned about intuition while spending time in India. In his biography, written by Walter Isaacson, Jobs said coming back to America was much more of a cultural shock than going to India. “The people in the Indian countryside don’t use their intellect like we do, they use their intuition instead, and their intuition is far more developed than in the rest of the world,” said Jobs. “Intuition is a very powerful thing, more powerful than intellect; that’s had a big impact on my work.” Our professor explained that, when managing a business, intuition plays a vital role. Sometimes market conditions and the advice of people we trust might point to a certain direction, but our gut feeling might be telling us to go on a different path. And more often than not, our intuition is right. In her magazine ‘O,’ Oprah describes intuition as a “whispery sensation that pulsates just beneath the surface of your being.” Oprah says that learning to trust your instincts - using your intuitive sense of what’s best for you - is paramount for any lasting success (and if Oprah said it, it must be true). “All animals have it [intuition]; we’re the only creatures that deny and ignore it,” she said. “I’ve trusted the still, small voice of intuition my entire life, and the only time I’ve made mistakes is when I didn’t listen.” Even if you’re not as opened to the idea of intuition, you might have had glimpses of if when you first meet someone new - you’ve never seen this person in front of you before, but something tells you immediately if you will get along with this person or not. We’ve all had to make difficult decisions in our lives - it might be deciding to end a longterm relationship, to quit a job you’ve had for several years, to move to a different city or to take a different direction in life. Making such decisions can add enormous amounts of stress to our lives and make us fearful that we might be making the wrong decision. Jordan Bach, a young spiritual leader from New York, says that when faced with a difficult decision, a good strategy is to sense in your body which decision “feels like forward movement.” “Some of the best choices might make no sense, but they feel right in your body,” he explains on his website (www.thebachbook.com). Sometimes the choice that you have to make is not the most comfortable. In fact, you might forcefully wish that you didn’t have to make it. Nevertheless, your body is telling you that it is the right decision, and even though you don’t understand it, it is the best choice at that time.

CMCA AUDITED

The federal election campaign has produced a jumble of conflicting claims about whether or not Canada has a balanced budget or a deficit, how it was determined, and whether it even matters. The definitive word on this came out last week, with the release of the Government of Canada Annual Financial Report, signed off by Auditor General Michael Ferguson. “The government posted a budgetary surplus of $1.9 billion for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015, compared to a budgetary deficit of $5.2 billion in 2013-14,” the report says. “Revenues increased by $10.7 billion, or 3.9 per cent, from 2013-14, reflecting increases across all major revenue streams. Program expenses increased by $5.2 billion, reflecting increases in major transfers to persons and other levels of government, offset in part by a decrease in direct program expenses.” The Conservative government’s pre-election budget calculated that last year was in deficit, and this year would be the first in the black since 2008. Ottawa pundits say this “surprise surplus” was engineered with intentionally pessimistic budget estimates, so Prime Minister Stephen Harper would get a boost right about now. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau claimed last year’s surplus was partly generated by cuts to Veterans’ Affairs and Aboriginal Affairs. Wrong and wrong. Veterans’ Affairs spending was up 13 per cent, and Aboriginal Affairs spending rose nearly 30 per cent. Trudeau has also insisted Canada is in recession now, which helps his suddenly adopted position that a Liberal government would run deficits for the next three years to build infrastructure. Harper ran the biggest deficits in Canadian history after the 2009 crash, bailing out auto makers and building lots of “shovel ready” infrastructure, as did the U.S. and other countries. The question raised by Trudeau’s plan is whether it’s a good idea to keep doing that without a financial crisis. France, for example, has run operating deficits every year since the early 1970s, although the current Socialist government vows to balance the books by 2017. France’s operating debt is now equal to 91 per cent of its Gross Domestic Product. Canada’s net debt-to-GDP ratio is currently around 30 per cent, down from frightening levels in the 1990s before the Chrétien government finally balanced the budget. (Fun fact: then-finance minister Paul Martin not only cut transfers to provinces, unlike the current government, he inflicted the largest-ever cuts to the CBC. Harper’s CBC cuts were part of government-wide reductions, again due to that 2009 crisis.) NDP leader Thomas Mulcair has promised to balance the budget every year of his mandate, should he form Canada’s first-ever socialist government. He will spend the rest of the campaign trying to reconcile this promise with the grandiose spending plans he has piled up. Meanwhile in B.C., Finance Minister Mike de Jong may have benefited from Harper’s lowball budget. In his first quarter update last week, de Jong reported that his February budget forecast is on track, with a $277 million surplus. This is despite a $300 million bill for forest firefighting, thanks to personal and corporate income tax revenue expected to be $374 million higher than budgeted. B.C. bases its tax revenue figures on federal estimates, and the ones they got early this year were clearly low. Understated or not, this is a nice problem to have. De Jong says that at the current pace, B.C. will pay off its accumulated operating debt by 2020. The last time the province was free of operating debt was 1982. The big debt peak came during the NDP 1990s, with another spike from 2009 to 2013 under the B.C. Liberals.

Looking back at old hotel Minimum wage rises 20 cents

5

B.C.'s minimum wage has risen 20 cents to $10.45 an hour, the first annual increase since the provincial government tied it to the B.C. consumer price index. It's the first increase since 2012, when the wage was increased to $10.25. For restaurant and pub servers, the minimum wage rises from $9 to $9.20. Jobs Minister Shirley Bond has said the discount from the general minimum wage will remain at $1.25 to account for income earned in tips. NDP labour critic Shane Simpson called the increase "dismal" and "paltry." B.C. Federation of Labour president Irene Lanzinger said by the end of 2015, B.C. will have the second lowest minimum wage in Canada. "Seattle will reach $15 an hour by 2017, Alberta by 2018," Lanzinger said. "B.C.'s minimum wage will reach $15 per hour by 2034."

LAKELAND from t P1 and reopened. Although there have been rumours of a casino being built in the hotel basement, Chief Skin told Lakes District News that those rumours are false. “We do not intend to make a casino,” said Chief Skin. “We intend to improve the hotel and make the heart of downtown Burns Lake a destination place.” The new owners also plan to renovate the hotel rooms to bring them up to standard. “We will have a high standard of cleanliness as well as a great staff trained in hospitality.” Furthermore, Chief Skin said STFN has dreams of a possible fitness centre and swimming pool in the hotel. “There is lots of potential,” he said. “We believe the hotel will be brought to a standard that people will approve for repeat business; possibly a good place for people to conduct business, relax, or watch their favourite sports.” The STFN expects the new hotel will provide employment to their members and the surrounding First Nations, as well as Burns Lake residents. In fact, the STFN has already hired people from six different First Nations around the community to help prepare the building for contractors. Greg Brown, President of the Burns Lake and District Chamber of Commerce, said the chamber was pleased to hear of the purchase of the Lakeland Hotel by the STFN. “Chief Rene Skin and his team have been very proactive for their members and we look forward to the renovation and reopening of this facility,” said Brown. “Our board of directors and staff are always willing to help our members grow their business and to welcome new investors to the business community.” According to Sheryl Worthing, Chief Administrative Officer for the Village of Burns Lake, the village has been assisting STFN on this renovation project. The village’s economic development officer has given the STFN information on the business façade grant program; the village’s building inspector is assisting with building permit information; and the village’s director of protective services is assisting with fire code regulation and safety information. “With the improvements in the downtown core over the past three years, the renovations and upgrades to the Lakeland Hotel will help enhance the work that has already been done,” said Worthing. “We are very excited about this project and are looking forward to the finished product.”

Two thumbs up for Lakes Outdoor Rec Editor: This letter will probably not be considered news, but I hope you will be able to find room in your paper to print it. I was visiting your area recently, on a trip that had taken me up into Yukon and Alaska by truck and camper. I stayed in a couple of places that were managed by the Lakes Outdoor Recreation Society and I wanted to thank the group for all their work. The sites had been obviously cared for, and one in particular had extensive steep trails which had many, many downed trees that had been bucked up and moved off the trail. I appreciate that someone took on the responsibility for doing that challenging work, on his/her own time, just so others could have a nice,

Donate, don’t throw it in the landfill Editor: Since the re-used shed is closed I am suggesting that any organization that depends on donations or garage sales or auctions to make their plans well known and in advance so that people can donate those items that would otherwise be put in the landfill. If someone wants to raise funds for a good cause it is a good time to do so. A lot of good items went through the re-use, where will they go now? Helene Brunette

So, here is a big, public, job well d one to all the members and volunteers who do the work at the Lakes Outdoor Recreation Society, and who are such an asset to your communities.

Local band official’s 2014/15 income

Michael Riis-Christianson

Two of this area’s six First Nations leaders were paid more last year than members of British Columbia’s Legislative Assembly, and a third earned more than the province’s Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation. According to documents available through Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC), Chief Rene Skin of the Skin Tyee First Nation was paid $128,530 in remuneration and honoraria in the 12 months ended March 31, 2015. His counterpart at the Lake Babine Nation, Wilf Adam, received salary and honoraria totalling $110,139 during the same period. These incomes garnered both men the distinction of earning more than a B.C. Member of the Legislative Assembly. During the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015, each of B.C.’s 85 MLAs was paid a base salary (excluding expenses) of $101,859. Skin was also paid $58,852 in travel-related expenses last year, bringing his total First Nations related income to $187,382. Adams’ total band-related income was $203,901, as he also posted travel expenses of $93,762. As of July 2015, the Skin Tyee First Nation had a registered population of 179 members, while the Lake Babine Nation’s registered population totalled 2462. Adams and Skin weren’t the highest paid First Nations leaders in this area last year. Richard Peters, who served as chief of the Cheslatta Carrier Nation for the 12 months ended March 31, 2015, received remuneration totalling $166,169 – $23,566 more than John Rustad, B.C.’s Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation, and only $9,028 less than Premier Christy Clark. Peters also received $34,527 in travel-related expenses, for a combined band-related income of $200,696. Several other local First Nations leaders also posted six-figure incomes last year. Dan George, who served as councillor of the Burns Lake Band for seven months and its chief for five, received band-related remuneration and expense payments totalling $132,185. Chief Ray Morris of the Nee Tahi Buhn Band was paid $91,405 in remuneration and honoraria for the year ended March 31, 2015 and an additional $62,976 in expenses, for a total of $154,381. Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada records show that as of July 2015, the Burns Lake Band had 130 registered members, while the Nee Tahi Buhn Band had 147. Deputy Chief Frank Alec of the Lake Babine Nation earned $68,500 in honoraria and an additional $56,000 in travel expenses, for a combined band-related income of $124,500. Fellow LBN councillors Leonard Lawley and Fred William were paid $112,405 and 111,326 in honoraria and expenses last year, respectively. Karen Ogen, chief of the Wet’suwet’en First Nation (which

Tea time in Burns Lake with John Rustad Rustad says Colleymount Road needs “a lot of work” ANDREA CURRIE

John Rustad, MLA for Nechako Lakes, met with eight constituents during the Senior’s Tea on Sept. 18, 2015, at the Lakeside Multiplex in Burns Lake.

Eighth Avenue/Center project GRANT from ▼ P2 Staff added that the process to ask the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako for funding would involve requesting a meeting with the directors of electoral areas B and E. If there is interest, council could direct staff to submit a grant-in-aid for a one-time contribution from both electoral areas B and E. Another issue discussed at the meeting was that, according to village staff, proceeding with the current program of the Eighth Avenue/Center Street corridor project without full replacement of the water main could lead to “catastrophic failure,” either during or shortly after construction, putting the project in financial jeopardy. “Any plan which does not include replacement of the water main and all connected appurtenances would be risky,” said staff in a report. Council did not make any decisions regarding this issue and requested staff to bring additional information to the next council meeting.

Flavio Nienow The B.C. government is providing $136,000 to the Lakes District campus of the College of New Caledonia (CNC). The funding will result in the creation of 16 health care assistant spaces at the Lakes District campus. Currently, there are zero health care assistant spaces in Burns Lake. Matt Partyka, CNC’s Spokesperson, said receiving this funding was critical. “There is no base funding for these types of health programs and there is a growing need for health care assistants in the north,” he said. Partyka added that Northern Health is an important partner and is working closely with the College of New Caledonia to deliver the health care assistant program in Burns Lake. The provincial government says one-time funding for short-duration health-education programs helps address the immediate needs of specific communities so that the supply of trained health-care professionals is aligned with demand. The funding, which is targeted at programs running for one year or less, was awarded after public post-secondary institutions answered a call for proposals. The B.C. government has provided one-time funding for additional education spaces in health programs annually since 2008, and funding to date totals $14.8 million, which has created more than 1800 student spaces throughout the province. “Our government is focused on finding the most effective way of funding health education to ensure that the supply of health-care workers is aligned with demand for health services in Burns Lake,” Nechako Lakes MLA John Rustad said.

How many people have lost their jobs at the College of New Caledonia?

Flavio Nienow In the story ‘College of New Caledonia budget approved’ published in the Lakes District News' May 6 edition, the College of New Caledonia (CNC) had issued 39 layoff notices across all campuses. However, several of these notices were expected to be rescinded prior to their effective date of July 31, 2015. At the Lakes District campus, a total of 10 employees were given layoff notices back in March 2015. Some of these employees were hired back with reduced hours. At this point, four of the 10 employees actually lost their jobs, according to Matt Partyka, CNC’s Spokesperson. Partyka said that, although operational (CUPE) employees can be laid off at any point throughout the year, no additional layoffs have occurred since March 2015. In total, the college issued 39 layoff notices across all campuses this year - 21 for faculty members and 18 for CUPE employees. However, 14 employees - eight faculty employees and six CUPE employees - actually ended up losing their jobs. Partyka explained that out of the eight faculty members that lost their jobs, three chose to accept the layoffs even though there was opportunity for full-time work for two of them and part-time work for one. Two of these eight employees were from the Burns Lake region. Out of the six CUPE employees that lost their jobs, four chose not to exercise their bumping rights into other positions, one was on a medical leave and one chose to retire, said Partyka. Two of the six CUPE employees laid off were from the Burns Lake region. The college has been making a series of cutbacks to address a deficit of $2.8 million in its 2015/16 operational budget. Back in April 2015, the college’s board of directors had agreed that the family programs offered at the Lakes District campus would be transitioned to other community agencies in Burns Lake such as the Elizabeth Fry Society and the Northern Health Authority. The college has now confirmed that these contracts will be transitioning in March 2016. The community social service and health-related programs such as healthier babies brighter futures and early intervention

services, known as family programs, have been delivered at the Lakes District campus for several years. These family programs are regarded by college employees and residents as one of the college’s most successful operations. While the college may receive revenue from these programs, they are not part of the college's “core business,” explained Partyka. “The college will focus on its core mandate of post-secondary education in the future,” he said. The college is also in the process of transitioning from faceto-face instruction to video-conferencing, known as the digital delivery initiative (DDI). This model of distance delivery is based on synchronous, real-time, classroom-based and instructor-led programming, accessed in multiple sites at once. The college is piloting its DDI in Prince George and Quesnel in 2015-16, while additional funding is sought to support the necessary equipment for the other campuses.  The college expects to launch the DDI in Burns Lake and Fort St. James in 2016-17, and in Mackenzie and Vanderhoof in 2017-18. “Currently our DDI program is in its pilot stages,” said Partyka. “We are offering business classes between Quesnel and Prince George; we hope to expand the DDI programs in the future.” Partyka said not all programs will transition into the DDI as some programs and some parts of programs are clearly not suited for that sort of model. Although a counsellor’s position was eliminated in Quesnel and Prince George, Partyka said Burns Lake still employs a counsellor. The two full-time counsellor positions eliminated at the Prince George campus were replaced with a part-time counsellor (10 hours per week) along with a full-time student success advocate. “The college will work hard to ensure that any students who need help outside of this availability will be directed to counselling services within the community,” said Partyka. When asked if the cutbacks were sufficient to address the $2.8 million deficit, Partyka said it is really too early in the fiscal year to answer that question. “In short, the college always deals with financial challenges due to inflationary costs,” said Partyka. “Unfortunately this is a reality of post-secondary education.” “We have just started classes for the semester and are still receiving enrollments, so it’s nearly impossible to speculate as to what sort of costs the college will face in the next while,” he added.   Burns Lake Mayor Luke Strimbold is in Vancouver this week advocating on behalf of the Lakes District campus staff at the 2015 Union of British Columbia Municipalities.

Pow-wows for Kyle Daniels will continue

Andrea Currie Several community members attended the  three-day memorial pow-wow for Kyle Daniels that started Sept. 18, 2015. Daniels was a young local man who passed away four years ago while visiting his biological father in Saskatchewan, two days before he was set to come home. The pow-wow aimed at bringing family and community members together to participate in the Pow-wow circle, which included dancing and drumming. The idea was to remember Daniels in a positive way and show young people an alternative to alcohol and drugs. One participant encapsulated the idea that drives the family to continue on with the memorial Pow-wows, saying, “If we can change or influence one person’s life for the positive, it is well worth it.” This pow-wow, set at the end of the traditional harvest season, was to be the last of four, each one honouring the four directions - north, east, south, and west. However, Violet Findlay, Daniels’ mother, has announced that the pow-wows will continue. “This was supposed to be our last final farewell, but we decided to keep it going and have it every year,” she said. “I’m just happy we’re having it because it brings This was suppose to be a farewell pow-wow, but it has now been decided they will healing to our family.” continue.

Find out which section of Hwy. 16 will have four lanes

Flavio Nienow Work is underway to double the capacity of Hwy. 16 starting at the Bunce Road intersection, just west of Prince George, for approximately 3.4 km. As part of B.C. on the Move, the province’s 10-year transportation plan, the ministry of transportation and infrastructure proposes to widen a section of Hwy. 16 to four lanes from the Bunce/Gauthier Rd. intersection to the east of Jensen Rd. This upgrade will improve the safety and capacity of Hwy. 16 for those travelling to and from B.C.’s northwest and for those living in communities just west of Prince George. A drop-in information session about proposed improvements was held on Sept. 17, 2015, in Prince George. If you were unable to attend the open house, please send your comments or questions to the project manager, Brent Davies, at Brent.Davies@gov.bc.ca Construction is anticipated for the summer of 2017.

It’s a fairly common tactic for scammers to call you claiming to be “Microsoft” and asserting that your computer is full of bugs. Then they’ll tell you they’re the only ones who can fix it, for an insanely large fee. However, in a strange twist on the usual phishing call scheme, now the scammers are trying to get you to call them. This happens by means of small adware infection which, when you’re surfing the web in your browser of choice, generates a pop up or new tab that tells you that you have a serious infection, and that you must call “Microsoft” to fix the problem. In reality you have a relatively minor adware infection. Shut your web browser down, reset the browser to its defaults, then run an anti-virus and anti-malware check on your computer. If the pop up won’t let you close the browser window, try opening the Windows Task Manager with Ctrl+Shift+Esc, finding your preferred web browser under the Applications tab and shutting it down by right clicking on it and selecting ‘End Task’.
