Mayor’s Report

Thanks to Luke Middleton for bringing the Allan Cup to Hudson’s Hope. The Allan Cup is the trophy awarded to the national senior amateur men’s hockey champions. The children very much enjoyed the chance to see and hear about the history of this trophy that has been around since 1908.

T

his month there are many people who should be mentioned for their hard work and help in showcasing Hudson’s Hope. Any event that is held in this community is a benefit to our tourism and local economy. Thank-you to all the volunteers who succeeded in making the Fishing Derby, Ball Tournament, Strawberry Festival and High School Rodeo successful. These events bring people and dollars into our community.

Guess who is 99 years old this month, yes, Ethel Rutledge. Happy Birthday to a wonderful lady. It was so great to see Ethel and Beth Ardill at the Strawberry Festival. I am reminded of the saying “And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years”. I am sure this saying was made just for Ethel and Beth.

Congratulations to Jake Watson and Hayden Huxley who won their events in the Provincial High School Rodeo held in Merritt BC early this month. They will now represent BC in the National High School Rodeo to be held in Gillette, Wyoming in mid July. Kyla Fettes and Kayla Gonwick also won the right to participate in the Merritt rodeo, although they didn’t place in the top three, they had good rides. Due to a broken ankle, Ricky Warren was unable to ride but he had an excellent year. July 2010

Council has had one workshop relating to the proposed Site C dam and will continue to follow the progress of this project. Council is committed to making the negotiations as transparent as possible and will only accept what is positive for our community’s well-being and future. 1

hank You to the Hudson's Hope and Beryl Prairie Fire Departments for taking the time to make Curtis' wish thru Make a Wish happen. During Curtis's treatment he was given the opportunity to make a wish. His first wish was to go to Disney World. When we returned home from his year of treatments, he was looking forward to playing outside with his yard toys. Sometime last July, his outdoor toys were destroyed by a strong wind that swept thru Farrell Creek. When he saw this he sat down and said "I really wish I had something to play on". We contacted Make a Wish right away and his new wish was granted. On May 29th, the Fire departments set up his playcenter. Thank you so much for taking time to make this happen.

The draw will take place at the museum’s annual fundraising “Harvest Social” on October 23rd. The museum welcomes Sylvia Tran as she begins her work term for the summer. Sylvia is an anthropology major from UBC and is working on the artifact inventory project and helping to organize the Heritage Days summer program. The museum is open daily from 9:30 am – 5:30pm until the end of September. If you require any further information, please call Rosaleen on 783-5735 or e-mail: hhmuseum@pris.ca.

This July 3 and 4th the Jam at the Dam Music Festival Society will be holding its 6th annual festival in Hudson’s Hope, B.C. at The Pearkes Cultural Centre. This family oriented weekend has grown over the years into a modest musical weekend at which Peace region musicians are featured. The festival was started originally by two friends, Evie Edinger and the late Anna Biberdorf, who were at Grizzfest 2004. They were so thrilled that the local Hudson’s Hope band ‘Stand Together’ received the People’s Choice Award that year. They believed that Hudson's Hope had the best band so “why can’t we have our own damned festival?” So with a lot of support from volunteers and local businesses, Jam at the Dam 2005 was started and since then each year the awesome talent of Peace region musicians is enjoyed.

fficially we greeted the first day of summer on the 21st of last month, but it really feels like summer once kids are out of school. Whether you are planning a vacation close by or in another region of the province, let us help you with your plans. We carry the BC Provincial Road Maps, BC approved Accommodation Guides, visitor guides for each region and its communities as well as for those going North to Yukon, Northwest Territories , Nunavut or Alaska and those of you going east to Alberta, Saskatchewan or Manitoba. Each week we receive updated weekly events for all communities in Northern BC ranging from music festivals, golf tournaments, fishing derbies; you name it. So if you are heading out and want to see what unique is happening in the various communities, we would gladly pass along the information. And, on one last attempt to lure you in, let me explain about the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC launching a Fishing Buddies program. In an effort to grow the number of freshwater anglers in BC, the FFSBC program encourages experienced anglers to pass on their knowledge and passion to somebody new to fishing so that eventually, all British Columbians will have the opportunity to enjoy BC’s world–class sport fishing opportunities. Let us help you enter on line or you can do this at home at www.gofishbc.com/fishingbuddies . The prizes are great (think fishing trips!) Good luck and hope to see you soon!

Next Steps for the Site C Clean Energy Project Environmental assessment process will begin in early 2011 In April of this year, the provincial government announced that the Site C Clean Energy Project will advance to an environmental and regulatory review, which includes an independent environmental assessment process. BC Hydro anticipates formally entering the pre-application stage of the environmental assessment process in early 2011 with the submission of a project description. As part of the environmental assessment for Site C, there will be opportunities for consultation and input by the public, communities, First Nations, property owners and stakeholders. In addition, during the environmental assessment process, BC Hydro will identify potential environmental and socio-economic effects from the project. Where impacts cannot be avoided, BC Hydro will identify and evaluate options for mitigation. Prior to the environmental assessment process, BC Hydro will:

Refine and update the historic Site C project design to reflect current environmental, seismic and safety guidelines.  Transition environmental and socio-economic studies from baseline work to effects assessment.  Continue consultation and engagement with Aboriginal groups.  Continue to engage with communities, community relations and communications, including keeping the public, stakeholders, communities, and property owners informed about the project. Prepare for the pre-application phase of the environmental assessment. With Site C, BC Hydro is planning now so that British Columbians will continue to enjoy the benefits of secure, reliable and affordable electricity in the future. Site C will be a source of clean and renewable electricity for more than 100 years—it will provide enough electricity to power more than 400,000 homes per year in B.C. Construction of Site C is subject to environmental certification and ensuring that the Crown’s constitutional duties to First Nations are met. To learn more about the Site C project, please visit www.bchydro.com/sitec. There are some also visuals available on the BC Hydro website. A rendering of the historic project design for Site C is available at: http://www.bchydro.com/planning_regulatory/site_c/ Information_Centre/maps_images.html, and/or photos of the announcement are available at: http://www.bchydro.com/news/press_centre/image_library/news_images.html.

2010 PADDLE FOR THE PEACE Important Notice of Route Change The 2010 Paddle for the Peace route has been shortened to ensure the journey is appropriate for all skill levels. The new route will be from Lynx Creek RV Park/Campground to the junction of the Peace and Halfway Rivers, just downstream of the mouth of the Halfway (east side of bridge). While participants should still plan on being on the river between four and five hours, the shorter route will allow for more time to relax and enjoy the scenery. Anyone wishing to drop off a vehicle in the morning prior to the launch will now go to the Halfway River bridge instead of Bear Flat. As some Paddle posters were distributed prior to the route change, please help spread the word about the new take-out site. Hope to see you all out of July 10th.

ning but I can do that on my time, the real reason I organize this run is because I know that The Heart and Stroke Foundation has come a long way in its research towards finding a cure for such a deadly disease. Over the years, I have heard many heart warming stories how this has touched people’s lives. Thanks to this research there are now many heart attack and stroke survivors. Some have participated to celebrate exactly that – they are survivors and it’s their way of giving back. For some it’s a dedication run in memory of a loved one. This brings with it the understanding that the fight for a cure still has to continue. For others, it’s the continued commitment to health and fitness, for others it’s a new realization that physical activity is important in reducing risks associated with heart disease. Still more participate, just to support a worthwhile cause. All of these reasons just add up to one thing: what you do is making a difference! Together, one step at time, we will work to beat this disease. So “step” up your training for next year’s run on Sunday, June 5th.

Celebration of Life

Joshua Wade Lavallee May 11, 1992—June 5, 2010 Joshua was taken from us suddenly on Saturday, June 5, 2010. He is survived by his Mother Nicole Lavallee, Stepfather Vinnie Bratt, Sister Sarah, his Father Darren & Kim Thompson and the Thompson family and Grandparents Fay & Clark Lavallee. Thank you neighbours and all; We will not be seeing our curly headed grinnin' boy riding around town on his BMX anymore, but his delightful spirit and his loving heart will be ever present in our minds. Thank you all so much Hudson's Hopers for the kind messages via e-mail, the meals, the cookies and cakes and the many cards we have received these past days. Thank you also Paul and Johanna for the use of your trailer! The many hugs and warm hello's from you all are so appreciated. We want to mention how proud we are of Josh and Sarah's many young friends, how kind and well mannered you have been. Our whole family is overwhelmed by the love and support you kids have shown all of us during this time of sorrow. God bless each and everyone of you. With heart-felt appreciation, Clark and Fay Lavallee, Nicole, Sarah and Vinnie Michele, Clark Jr. , Celise and cousins July 2010
