ment is going to follow through on its election promise of spending more on infrastructure projects, a significant northwest B.C. one is moving along. Construction of an overpass over the CN tracks now crossing Hwy16 between Terrace and Prince Rupert was announced late last July, immediately before the start of the federal election campaign. The estimated $37 million cost is to be divided between the province at $19.5 million and

the federal government at $17.5 million. That federal contribution came from the New Canada Building Fund and it continues to this day despite a change in government. “The project funding remains the same,” said a statement from the provincial transportation ministry. The overpass project and $4.4 million to help finance the ongoing expansion of Northwest Regional Airport, also announced just before the federal election, are contained on the website of the federal Infrastructure Canada department. In the meantime, engineering
and design work are underway. “The engineering team is currently performing geotechnical investigation work on site that will be used as part of the design process,” said the provincial transportation ministry statement. The ministry is handling the construction work and in turn will be reimbursed by the federal government. “The overall project remains on schedule for a late fall 2016 tender, with construction beginning in early 2017 and project completion by the end of 2018,” the provincial statement said. With an increase in infrastructure spending expected
when the federal Liberal government releases its first budget next month, Skeena – Bulkley NDP MP Nathan Cullen is touring the riding asking locals for their priorities. “I hear a lot about high speed and the internet,” said Cullen. “That’s important for this riding and its rural areas.” One example is in Rosswood north of Terrace, one of its hopes being to tap into the fiber optic cables contained in the nearby Northwest Transmission Line. Cullen’s infrastructure session in Terrace took place Feb. 11, in the arena banquet room. Kitimat and Prince Rupert are also on Cullen’s list.

School district considers bus cancelation or fees for riders By Kevin Campbell
THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
PRINCE RUPERT - The Prince Rupert School District (SD52) is facing budget challenges to a degree it hasn’t had to in years. A $1 million-plus shortfall is expected for the school district’s budget of 2016-17. In addition, the district has relied on a budgetary surplus to get through the past few years – a surplus that was pencilled in to be used up ($1,240,000) in 2015-16. “We’ve used up our surplus this budget year, so we won’t have a buffer going into the next year, which is where our problem will lie. So we’ll be looking at every area to see where we can trim and make things a little easier,” said board chair Tina Last. In his address to stakeholders in late January, district secretary treasurer Cam McIntyre detailed the components of the upcoming budget, explaining that the $1 million shortfall represents approximately four per cent of the overall budget – a cutting that the board hasn’t had to address in quite some time. “What’s happened in the last number of years [is] we have deferred making cuts, while we were going to use the surplus in the previous two school years, but there were strikes for significant parts for both years and the end result of the strikes was we effectively didn’t spend as much money as we thought we would,” said McIntyre. Additionally, the district is losing funding protection, which was close to $2 million this year, or eight per cent, money that many districts don’t have, explained McIntyre. The surplus built up because of this funding protection and the district hadn’t spent all of it over time. The total operating grant for the district will decline by 1.5

per cent or $369,000 “as a result of the funding protection formula”. The secretary treasurer stressed that more students and higher enrolment doesn’t necessarily mean more funding, but less funding protection. “While we’ve been richly blessed with many resources for many years, at the end of it all, the expectation is you would have a level of service comparable to other districts, but we currently have much richer services,” said McIntyre. Among the difficulties the district faces is forecasting the number of students that may arrive next September should one or more LNG projects go ahead. The middle school and high school currently have smaller class sizes compared to the provincial average, so there is room to add more students, but the elementary schools will be “more of a challenge”. Reserve staffing will be in place for September should the district find itself with more students than expected. Finding that four per cent to cut is made even more difficult by the fact that 87 per cent of funding is tied up in personnel salary, while 13 per cent is designated for everything else, such as supplies, utilities, insurance and student transportation. “We expect there will be quite a number of teachers retiring ... so it’s certainly likely that part of that will be addressed simply through attrition [and] you won’t replace all the teachers who retire,” said the secretary treasurer. But where cuts may be felt most is in student transportation, which only makes up 1.7 per cent of the budget. SD52 now runs two buses every day, with french immersion students pay-

Premier’s Award given to SD52 program By Kevin Campbell THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
PRINCE RUPERT - The Prince Rupert School District (SD52) can add another award to its growing mantel. Shortly after Hartley Bay School won the national Jack Layton Award for Youth Action in Sustainability in October, the 2015 Premier’s Award for Innovation was presented to district principal Linda Hikida and her team who spearheaded the After School Sports and Arts Initiative pilot project the past few years, which became an ongoing program of the Director of Agencies for School Health throughout the province. “It’s a grant that we receive from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, and it started out as a sports-only program in 2012,” said Hikida last week. As a pilot district, Hikida helped offer after-school sports programming for vulnerable youth, or any student who would rather stay at school to play some hockey, curling, or some of the more expensive sports, rather than go home right at 3 p.m when the buzzer rang. “When the program first started our mandate was to teach eight different sports over six months and teach the skills for basketball, field hockey [and more],” she said. After every session, the instructors would ask for feedback from the students and discuss possible points of frustration like missing a goal or losing a game. “It was very successful. We had a program at every elementary school for one
“What we were trying to do was get kids to not have to go home and watch television or play video games, but be involved.” Linda Hikida day a week and one at the middle school,” Hikida added. The next year, the program expanded to include the arts as well as sports, as not every student was chomping at the bit to grab a hockey stick or kick a ball. Artists such as Jason Watts and Nicole Best Rudderham, as well as a photographer, were hired with the available funds. “What we were trying to do was get kids to not have to go home and watch television or play video games, but to be involved and develop their social skills and develop their fine motor skills,” said the district principal. “I was amazed at how very popular the arts program was ... Two years ago it stopped being a pilot and it was a grant that was going to be coming every year. They basically divided the money down the middle and you can spend $25,000 on the arts program and $25,000 on the sports program, so it’s very equal ... We have lineups

for kids to get in the program. “We have different people in our support union that run the program and they’re the people that have made the program what it is. At the middle school, we have Sonny Henry and Jane Collins and they’ve been working at it from the outset. At the elementary schools we have Fernando Soares and Teresa Cuzner and then we have Robyn Martin, Carmen Hansen, Sara Hill and Amanda Salm,” she said, adding that First Nations artist Nakkita Trimble also took part, completing paintings of housefronts, totem poles and more with the kids.

Christine Tassan et les Imposteures tonight at Mount Elizabeth KITIMAT - The Kitimat Concert Association is presenting Christine Tassan et les Imposteures, at 8 p.m., tonight, Friday, Feb. 12 at the Mount Elizabeth Theatre. It has been 13 years since this exciting quartet started tending their craft in both gypsy jazz and standard Québecois and swing music, and there is no doubt that they are definitely here to stay. Pioneers in a domain usually populated with
men, this all-woman quartet continues to reinvent this timeless music while integrating new ideas and influences with originality and flair. Since their inception in 2003, the group has performed more than 400 concerts across Canada and France, with appearances at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the Lévis Festival de Jazz, the Festival des guitares in RouynNoranda, the April in Paris
Vancouver festival, and on St-Pierre et Miquelon. They have twice been featured by CBC Radio as part of the Concerts on Demand series. Over the years, the band has shared the stage with illustrious gypsy swing musicians, including John Jorgenson, Tchavolo Schmit, Angelo Debarre, Rodolphe Raffalli and David Reindhart. In June 2014, they were invited to the Django Reinhardt Festival of Samois-
sur-Seine (France), one of the world’s most prestigious gypsy jazz festivals, where they were honoured as the first women and Québécois gypsy jazz band to perform on this famous stage. Their first two albums, De bon matin (2007) and Pas manouche, c’est louche (2010), received wide critical acclaim. De bon matin went to the top of Radio-Canada’s Coup de Coeur hit list and
reached number one on the Radio Couleur Jazz Top 4. Pas manouche, c’est louche was nominated for Best Jazz Album Creation at the ADISQ awards. Their third album, released in 2012 and finalist at the Opus Prize 2014 in the “Jazz album of the year” category, follows in the same lively spirit. On stage, this dynamic quartet is amazing. They improvise with ease, interpret their repertoire with
dynamism, blend their voices together in refined harmonies and communicate a strong personal bond that flows from their close friendship. Consummate performers and good friends, Christine Tassan et les Imposteures will have you bouncing in your seat and grinning from ear to ear. Tickets are available at Katii’s Knook in the upper City Centre Mall or from Hazel at 250-632-4008.

Kitimat Marlins at regionals.
Smashing pool records KITIMAT - The Kitimat Marlins Swim Club are the 2016 Northwest B.C. Regional Champions. Marlins won the meet by more than 200 points over second place Prince Rupert, with Terrace third and Smithers fourth. Sixteen-year-olds Zachary Dumas and Kleanza Cathers looked sharp in their last meet before attending the Western Canadian Nationals in Winnipeg. Dumas broke six pool records in the 15-and-over Boys including the 800 and 1,500 metre freestyle, 200 metre backstroke, 200 and 400 metre individual medley and the 200 metre butterfly. Dumas won all seven of his events on his way to overall gold medal in his category. Cathers broke five pool records in the 15-and-over Girls category including the 200, 400, 800 and 1,500 metre freestyle and the 200 metre backstroke. Cathers won all seven of her events to pick up the overall gold medal. Gold also went to Charlotte Collier, 13,
and Jayden Johnston, 11. who won every event in their category. Other Kitimat medal winners for overall points were Emilie Krabes, gold in 11-andunder Girls; Olivia Pearson, silver in the 11-and-under Girls; Ewan Thomopoulos, silver in 11-and-under boys; Leah Desousa, silver, and Hannah Pearson, bronze in the 1213 Girls Division. Laurence Boucher, took the silver in the 14-and-over Girls Division. Nolan Striker, 15, achieved his first two AA provincial times in the 200 backstroke and the 400 freestyle. He becomes the 13th Marlin with a minimum of one AA provincial time or better. That’s more than the other three northwest B.C. teams combined! Striker was one of many Marlin swimmers who recorded personal best times at the meet. The other Marlins to do so were Ewan Thomopoulos, Joshua Reis, Grayden Rusconi, Faith Silva, Halle Gray, Emilie Krabes, Kaelyn Manseau, Hannah Pearson, Annika Desousa, Sarah Toth and Brandon Ciemniack.
TERRACE - Terrace River Kings are shooting into round two of playoffs against Smithers in Terrace this Saturday, Feb. 13, after a solid 7-2 win against Prince Rupert last weekend, Feb. 6. They played a very strong, aggressive, and physical game, said coach Rob Findlay. Prince Rupert led into the game with the first goal a few minutes into the first period. The period continued with lots of back and forth, and six penalties on either side. But the River Kings took the game in the second, dominating the ice and landing five goals. First was scored by Josh Murray, and then the Kings landed two nearly back to back - first by Liam Albright and the Ben Reinbolt on power play. Towards the end of the second, Brett Donnie topped it off with two more. In the third period, Tristan Murray landed the sixth goal for the Kings just over a minute in. Halfway through, Ben Reinbolt scored the seventh and final goal
for the Kings. The Rampage kept up their play and made a final goal two minutes later, and the game ended on a 7-2 win for the Kings. Findlay said the River Kings dominated because they put it all on the line. “They outworked them, they outshot them. I think what made the difference was the work ethic, and putting their bodies on the line. They were really being aggressive, being the first guy to the puck all the time,” Findlay said. “They wanted to win. They REALLY wanted to win.” The other key that earned the Kings their win was goaltending from the Kings’ Patrick Leal. “Patty played really well… He made some key saves to keep the momentum going,” Findlay said. The win, combined with the first 5-2 win against Prince Rupert on Jan. 30, finished off the first best-ofthree playoff series. The River Kings are now launching into the second round of playoffs against Smithers, who beat Kitimat Ice Demons 9-4 and 6-2. The first game is in the Terrace Sportsplex at 8 p.m.
this Saturday, Feb. 13. The second game is in Smithers at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 20, and if there is a third game it will be 1 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 21, in Smithers. Findlay says it will be tough series, and the key for the River Kings is playing all-out like they have been doing in playoffs so far. “Take every shift as your last shift and give it all out there,” Findlay said of what the River Kings need to do this Saturday. The Smithers strength is scoring, with a couple of players at the top of the league for goals scored. “They’ve got a more talented team, but I believe if we work as hard as we did in these last two games, we should do just fine,” Findlay said. “Their goal tending is good, but I don’t think it’s as good as ours. It’s kind of an offset: they’ve got better scorers, our goaltending will be better.” The winner of this bestof-three game series will face off against the top team of the eastern division, either Williams Lake Stampeders or Quesnel Kangaroos, who are battling it out over the next two weeks.
Midget Seawolves game for playoffs, provincials By Willim Gye THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
PRINCE RUPERT - The Prince Rupert Seawolves Midget Reps fell 10-0 to the Terrace Kermodes, but the lopsided loss wasn’t a true indicator. The Kermodes, who are a Tier 2 club, played against the Tier 4 Seawolves in a tune-up for provincials which will be held in a few weeks. Stand-out defenceman Keenan Marogan talked about some of the issues out there for the Seawolves. “We had a lot of key players down, so it was a little bit harder, but I enjoyed the physical game out there. I could have played better, but if we keep playing hard, we will go somewhere.” Once Keenan learns how to close the gap a bit quicker and use his size, he will be scary good. The Kermodes opened the scoring three minutes into the game on a bang-bang play in front of the net. Shortly after on a similar play, Terrace added to their lead making it 2-0. Prince Rupert dressed their back-up goaltender Brenden Ferlesen, who was a pleasant surprise, coach Josh Cook said. “No matter what the scoreboard
says, he (Brenden) had a hell of a game, it was his first full game in the league, and he had a lot of shots and stopped a lot of chances.” The Seawolves looked a bit disinterested at points in the game. Prince Rupert’s goaltending kept them in it early, as Terrace held the puck in Rupert’s end most of the first period. Terrace generated pressure by shooting the puck from the point or the slot and hitting the net creating rebounds for themselves and secondary chances. Rupert’s time and space was getting closed down quickly, and they were playing too much by themselves, not making the easy pass to break out. Terrace’s third goal was a direct result of that style of play. A shot from the point that missed the net on the left side, came back out the right side and Sam Reinbolt put it into the yawning cage. The coaches for Prince Rupert took a time-out, which was about all they could do. Unfortunately. the time out did very little and Terrace scored again soon after to make it 4-0. The Seawolves came out with more intensity to start the second frame. One would have to think the coaching staff had something to say

Their fifth was a beauty. Fake shot from the point slap pass down low to the right half boards then he centred the puck back door to the cutter Connor On-
stein. With the game out of hand for the Seawolves, there wasn’t much else to write home about. Cook talked about expectations and the outcome. “Not the result we wanted, but we had five or six injured guys and these games are all practice lead-
ing up to zones. We won’t be playing these guys in playoffs or provincials. Every loss makes us want to win the next one more. It’s obviously tough, but there’s no doubt in my mind that we will be going to provincials, we have been playing against Tier 2 and 3 teams all year.”
