OUR 8 YEAR TH

etulla Burning Pizzeria in Prince George was literally forged by fire. On May 6, 2015, development of the new restaurant was derailed by a massive fire that all-but-consumed the 60-year-old wooden building. But owners Eoin Foley and Garrett Fedorkiw persevered to bring their vision of Neapolitan style pizza to Prince George diners. Not only did the project rise from the ashes, but diners are now treated to a fiery display nightly as the restaurant’s wood-fired oven flash-cooks their meals. Betulla is Italian for birch, which burns hot enough to bring the oven to 800 to 900 degrees. Betulla Burning translates to “birch burning.” The centrepiece of the restaurant is the birch burning oven. Made of brick and masonry, it weighs 7,000 pounds. The SEE BETULLA BURNING  |  PAGE 14

hen the NDP government announced its onerous Medical Services Plan tax in the provincial budget, it caught many businesses by surprise. W h i le t he N DP fol lowed t h rou g h on for mer P rem ier Christy Clark’s plan to eliminate MSP payments, Finance Minister Carole James unveiled her plan to make business pay for the loss in revenue. Companies with payrolls over $500,000 are expected

to pay a 1 per cent tax on payroll, with the rate rising to 1.95 per cent annually for companies over $1,5 million. In real dollars, that means businesses at the lowest threshold would pay $5,000 per year, while a company with a $3 million in wages would face a $60,000 increase. On January 1, 2019, BC will implement the employee payroll tax - but residents’ MSP premiums won’t be eliminated until January 1, 2020. This means that the province will collect MSP premiums from both employers and individuals next year

- a move that will dramatically impact small business owners, particularly considering the federal government intends to hike CPP premiums during the same timeframe. It’s double tax-hit for companies in the first year. Employers who currently cover the cost of MSP premiums for employees will continue to pay that, plus the new tax. What is a company to do? Pass the unexpected overhead increase on to customers through higher rates for goods and services? What if the market won’t

bear it? Should owners just shrug their shoulders, cut a cheque to the government and chalk it up to an increased cost of doing business in BC? There may be options to consider, and there is the fact that the government has yet to introduce an ironclad structure to the tax, so alterations could be made. Some companies may decide to cover the increase by reducing current benefits to employees. Before doing that, however, Tara Benham of Grant Thornton SEE PLAN TAX  |  PAGE 7

VANDERHOOF Business Facade Improvement Program Back for 2018 Businesses on Columbia Street in Vanderhoof had a great opportunity to capitalize on the District of Vanderhoof’s Busin e s s Fa c a d e I m p r o v e m e n t Program. The application process, which closed May 31, provided a 50 per cent reimbursement grant up to a maximum of $5,000 per building/project to improve the facades of commercial buildings. To be eligible, the building had to be located on Columbia Street. Projects needed a minimum total cost of $2,000 in order to qualify and have a noticeable improvement on the visible streetscape. According to the application, “T he goal of the Vanderhoof Business Façade Improvement Program is to make Vanderhoof commercial areas more inviting and visually appealing to visitor and residents, increase assessed property values, promote private sector investment, build civic pride, and to stimulate the local economy. The Business Façade program offers assistance to property owners and business owners to improve the physical appearance of buildings. In 2018, the program will focus on businesses located on Columbia Street.”

Houston Forest Products Eyed for Bitcoin Farm MiningSky, a blockchain infrastructure company, has proposed building a cryptocurrency farm in the former Houston Forest Products site. Many cryptocurrency companies are attracted to the Pacific Northwest due to the weather, and abundance of hydro-electric energy.

Wimmers and Computer Science Professor Dr. Alex Aravind also teamed up to study the building’s Passive House performance. Along with graduate student Conan Veitch and undergraduate student Rodrigo Nicoletti Santoro Silverio, the team designed, tested and developed a prototype sensor system to measure the temperature and humidity in the building. They worked closely with Master of Engineering graduate Stephanie Wall and engineering technician Ryan Stern. Now that it’s complete, the lab will be used extensively by researchers designing the next generation of tall wood buildings. Students will also be active in the facility, both as a lab to test their own design ideas and to learn how the lab equipment, like the CNC machine and robots work.

WILLIAMS LAKE 2020 Vision for Cariboo Memorial Hospital Upgrades 55-year-old Cariboo Memorial Hospital is looking at getting some needed upgrades, with hopes of breaking ground by 2020. Minister of Health Adrian Dix announced the move to a business planning stage for these upgrades in February, and according to Bob Simpson, chair of the Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Hospital District, 2020 marks the anticipated beginning of this project. The parties involved believe the bidding could take as long as 10 months, and $480,000 in funding have been provided for business plan development costs.

The renovation is expected to cost at least $100 Million, and will hopefully go to tender by 2019. A master site plan for the hospital was completed in 2011, and came under review by Dix in late 2017. Many Williams Lake locals are excited about the plan, and there has been a lot of buzz since the project was announced in February. In press statements in February, Mayor Walt Cobb expressed that he hopes Williams Lake will become a medical hub to serve the needs of the CaribooChilcotin from this renovated hospital. He hopes the project will help citizens by lowering the amount of distance they need to travel in order to get medical help.

PRINCE RUPERT 70,000 Metric Tonnes of Pellets to Be Shipped Through Prince Rupert Annually Westview Wood Pellet Terminal owners Pinnacle Renewable Energy Group announced a new contract which will see an annual 70,000 metric tonnes of wood pellets transported to a Japanese conglomerate, Ube Industries Ltd. by the end of 2019.

This contract guarantees that Pinnacle will be paid for their pellets, even if Japanese demand decreases in the future. Japan has supported the demand for wood pellets and other biomass fuels through a feed-in tariff, which pays independent producers for their contributions to the national energy grid. T his initiative is an established part of Japan’s carbonreduction program, which is increasing the number of independent biomass power plants across the country. Japan’s demand for biomass is projected to increase more than 350 per cent, which is good news for Canadian wood-pellet producers. Pinnacle is happy with this arrangement, and continues to grow its business, meeting this international demand. It’s a long-term contract that bodes well for the future of Pinnacle and businesses like it.

The announcement was made at the BC Cattlemen’s Association (BCCA) annual general meeting in Smithers, and project supporters hope to have the plant fully operational by 2020. The project was initiated by the former BC Liberal government, with discussions beginning in 2013. The plant will be capable of processing 50,000 to 200,000 head of cattle per year. The Prince George location was chosen as it gives the BCCA better options for distribution. It is also in close proximity to Bulkley Valley, Cariboo, Nechako, and the Peace R iver region, which house many grain producers.

PROTECTION??? The Real Estate Services Act is legislation designed to protect the rights of consumers. Then why is the legislation taking away a consumers right to choose? As of June 15th, consumers are losing their right to choose who they want to represent them in the sale or purchase of real estate. If you list your home with your trusted REALTOR®, they will not be able to introduce a buyer to your property. If your REALTOR® of choice has had any previous dealings or knowledge of the other party to a real estate transaction, they must recuse themselves in the middle of the transaction. You will need to find a replacement REALTOR®. These are just a few of the complications resulting from the new rules proposed by the Minister of Finance. The Real Estate Alliance of BC believes consumers are best protected and empowered by their ability to make independent and informed decisions. Ultimately by retaining the right to work with the Real Estate professional of their choice. The Real Estate Alliance of British Columbia is a grassroots coalition of BC consumers and real estate Professionals. Visit www.therealbc.ca for more information on the loss of your rights in BC. Email: Hon. Carol James - Minister of Finance FIN.Minister@gov.bc.ca

Sa les of a l l property ty pes numbered 463 units in April 2018. This was up 4.3 per cent from April 2017. The total value of all properties sold was $124.2 million, up 4.9 per cent from April 2017. The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) stats released for the 2018 Second Quarter Housing Forecast show sales are forecasted to decline 9 per cent to 94,000 units this year, after posting 103,700 unit sales in 2017. BC MLS residential sales are forecast to remain relatively unchanged in 2019, a lb eit dow n 0.2 p er cent to 94,000 units. Housing demand is expected to remain above the 10-year average of 84,800 units into 2020. “T he housi ng ma rket cont i nues to be suppor ted by a strong economy,” said Cameron Muir, BCREA Chief Economist. “However, slower econom ic g row th is ex pected over the next two years as the economy i s nea r i ng f u l l employ ment and consumers have stepped back from their 2017 spending spree.” “Demog raph ics w i l l play a key role in the housing market over the next few years,” added Muir, “as growth in the adultaged population is bolstered by immigration and the massive millennial generation enters

its household forming years.” Muir notes there are, however, significant headwinds in the housing market. “R ising mortgage i nterest rates w i l l f u r t her ero de a f ford abi l it y and purchasing power, w ith the effect being exacerbated by an already high price level. The legacy of tougher mortgage qualifications for conventional mortgagors will be a reduction of their purchasing power by up to 20 per cent, and the provincial government’s expansion of the foreig n buyer ta x a nd several other policies aimed at taxing wealth is sending a negative signal to the market and likely diverting investment elsewhere.” The combination of slowing housing demand and rising new home completions is expected to trend most BC markets toward balanced conditions this year, and lead to less upward pressure on home prices.

Realtors Urging Province To Stop New Regulations Set For June 15

W

ith the province set to i mpose punitive and restrictive regulations on the real estate industry June 15, the newly formed BC Real Estate Alliance (REAL BC) has been speaking up, in hopes of persuading the government to stop and rethink the process. Ian Thompson, Managing Broker of RE/MAX of Nanaimo, notes the government’s decision to end self regulation for the industry and stop Limited Dual Agency, where one agent, with consent of both parties, represents both the buyer and the seller is sending shock waves throughout the industry. “The goal was supposed to be more protection for the consumer,” says Thompson. “The result, however, is the government is taking away the right for a public to decide who will represent them. “In addition in the rush to get these new rules started there will be no formal training on the new rules for the 23,000 realtors prior to June 15.  We are told all

“In addition in the rush to get these new rules started there will be no formal training on the new rules for the 23,000 realtors prior to June 15.” IAN THOMPSON RE/MAX NANAIMO, MANAGING BROKER

realtors will be trained by October. So we are going to start using the new rules with no training? How does this protect the consumer?” Thompson adds that Finance Minister Carole James recently appointed a lawyer to review how real estate is regulated in BC. “ T h i s i s b e c au se t he Superintendent and the Real Estate Council are now in Supreme Court to see who actually has final authority,” he adds. “This why the Alliance is calling for a complete stop to the proposed new rules.  Only the Finance Minister can do this.” T he cessation of dua l agency and the appointment of a non-industry superintendent are the latest causes for concern for realtors, who have watched the province implement a

punitive tax to discourage Foreign Buyers, and are still threatening to move ahead with a “speculators’ tax” on homes in areas which feature the costliest real estate in BC. In order to determine the level of public support for our positions, REAL BC engaged the public research and polling firm Insights West to conduct a public opinion survey of over 1,000 respondents from every region of BC to gain their feedback on some the issues at stake with the proposed rule changes, and have submitted those findings to the government. They are in stark contrast to the province’s own survey of 169 individuals, from which they concocted their plan. For more information, visit www.therealbc.ca

If businesses end up cutting down on employee benefits, that would mean this tax is indirectly having a negative impact on the people the government is trying to help.” Carla Boehm, a partner in Johnston, Johnston & Associates in Nanaimo, concurs. “While a company could consider reducing benefits paid or future wage increases to employees to recover some of these costs, there is always the risk that both staff morale and public opinion could be impacted negatively as a result.” One way an employer can avoid the new payroll tax is by making employees shareholders. “In this case, while all non-cash benefits would be subject to the new tax, the employer still has the option of using dividends,” Benham notes. “There may be a few options for deferral, e.g. payment through the use of stock options, but that would still result in the tax down the road once the employee is able to cash out. “One way employers could consider lowering their costs is by reviewing their benefits packages

to make them as tax efficient as possible for both parties. For example, the employer may provide certain benefits that are tax deductible to the company but not a taxable benefit to the employee and, therefore, not subject to payroll tax. For smaller companies sitting just above the $500,000 payroll tax threshold, it may make sense for a small business owner to pay themselves dividends and opt out of Canada Pension to avoid the new tax. “Because CPP can be a significant portion of a small business owners’ retirement income, I would encourage them to first review their salary/dividend mix and consider reducing their wages and topping up the difference with dividends,” says Benham. Boehm notes there is no quick and easy general answer. “Eliminating wages and moving to dividends as the only form of compensation would help reduce the payroll tax, however, there are other factors to consider. Dividend income does not create RRSP contribution room; dividends are not ‘earned’ income, so it can affect the ability to deduct some items such as child care expenses on their personal tax returns, and dividends are not considered CPP pensionable

actual outlay, if any, for the employer payroll tax, and then consider how much CPP they wish to contribute to maximize their CPP on retirement. Additionally, if contributing to an RRSP is important to the business owner, they should also evaluate how much room they should create. “By reducing wages and paying out more dividends, however, the

company will have a higher tax bill as dividends are not deductible. Therefore, the cash flow of both the business owner and the company need to be considered.” Discussions of this nature between business owners and their accountants are strongly recommended before considering any option.

WOMEN IN CONSTRUCTION Women In Construction: Increasingly Important Segment Looming Labour Shortfalls an Unprecedented Opportunity For Women BY DAVID HOLMES

ack in a simpler, more sexist time a brand of cigarettes was created with the sole goal of attracting additional female smokers. The catch-phrase of this women-friendly brand has now become an advertising icon: You’ve Come A Long Way Baby! While laughably dated and about as politically correct as a men’s locker room, there are some parts of the sentiment that continue to ring true. Women have come a long way, especially in the world of work, with women earning leadership roles in virtually every sector, vocation and profession.

and thrive in the coming decades, a fresh influx of talent and labour is necessary, with women increasingly taking on roles that would have been nearly unimaginable only a few short decades ago. Information compiled by the federa l government suggests that women comprise approximately 54 per cent of the nation’s

workforce, but represent less than 10 per cent of Canadian construction industry employees – a statistic that many say does not accurately reflect the workplace reality. “I believe the statistics include women who work in the office and in administrative capacities in those numbers, and essentially lump all ticketed trades not just construction trades under the overall umbrella of construction. This would include persons such

as hairdressers, which are certainly not part of construction,” explained Katy Fairley, a Director with the Canadian Construction Association (CAA). “If we were to drill down into those numbers, and from what I know through persona l ex perience, the actual per centage of women directly working in the industry in an active role would likely be closer to five to seven per SEE WOMEN IN CONSTRUCTION |  PAGE 10

cent, so obviously there’s lots of room for improvement.” In addition to being a member of the CAA’s Board of Directors Fairley is a former member of the board with the Vancouver Island Construction Association (VICA) and is currently the Vice-President of Business Development at Vancouverbased Kinetic Construction. Fairley says that despite there being a current gender imbalance in the construction industry, conscious efforts are being made to promote the sector as a positive career choice for young women just entering the working world. “The CAA at its annual conference held in March for the very first time hosted a session addressing the topic of women in construction, where senior industry leaders discussed what they have been doing

in their businesses to encourage a greater female involvement,” she said. “It should also be noted that the current chair of the CAA is a woman, Zey Emir who is with Revay and Associates Ltd. Her ability to reach that position is certainly reflective of the changes that are occurring in the industry. Certainly there is a long way to go, but progress is definitely being made.” Originally created in 2001 as the Construction Sector Council, BuildForce Canada is a national industry-led organization committed to working with the construction industry to provide information and resources to assist with its management of workforce requirements. In its recently released National Summary covering the years 2018 to 2027, BuildForce projected that the present skilled labour shortage that is impacting companies across the nation will continue to get worse as older Canadian workers head into retirement.

101 Industries is celebrating 50 years as a diversified, leading edge contractor offering a wide range of quality services.

BuildForce Canada predicts that the construction industry will need to fill more than 277,000 vacancies by 2027 The organization has estimated that within the next decade as much as 21 per cent of the current Canadian labour force will leave the industry – creating a gap that can only be filled by actively recruiting and training the next generation of construction industry leaders now. Increasingly women are being viewed as one viable way to fill that looming staffing shortfall, but one that can only be filled by taking immediate action. I n the su m ma ry of the Bu i ld Force Canada report, Bill Ferreira the group’s Executive Director said the industry has to take steps to head off a potential labour crisis. “This decade, Canada needs as many as 277,000 construction workers to meet labour demands and counter rising retirements. With these challenges in mind, the industry will need to step up recruitment efforts and do all it can to encourage far more new Canadians, women, and Indigenous people to join Canada’s construction workforce,” he said. A good example of that effort in action is the two Women in Construction (WiC) chapters that have been launched and supported by the Vancouver Island Construction Association. The groups, one in Victoria and the other based in Nanaimo, is a grassroots network created to promote and support female participation in the industry. Cheryl Hartman who is the Chair of the Victoria group says the potential rewards of a career in construction, from pure economics, to the range of skills and opportunities available make it the right choice for young men and for women just entering the workforce. “It’s not just the trades that are in need

of new workers, it’s every aspect of the industry. 30 years ago women’s career options were limited to becoming a teacher or a nurse or a mom, but today the options are endless. It just takes the courage to try, and to not be discouraged, but the rewards are there if you’re willing to take the chance. The doors for women have now opened everywhere, so this is the time to step through,” she said. T he Ch ief Esti mator a nd a Project Manager with Brewis Electric Company Ltd. in Victoria Hartman says pursuing a career in the construction industry is an excellent way for a young person to enter a lucrative field without carrying a large student debt that other vocations might require. “There is always going to be a need for the trades, if you enter this field you’ll always be able to find work and you’ll be able to do it without a boatload of debt. I’d recommend this for anyone,” she said. For Fairley, while progress has been m ade, a nd i ncreasi ng ly women a re thinking of construction as a career path, the present small per centage of female involvement is an obvious sign that there’s sti l l plenty of room for improvement. “There’s no escaping the fact that the older segment of our industry is leaving which creates a real potential for women. We’re now acutely feeling what a labour shortage does to construction and it’s not a problem you’re going to fix by looking at only 50 per cent of the population, you simply have to put it on the table for the other 50 per cent as well, make it an option and women will recognize it and take it,” she said. www.cca-acc.com & www.vicabc.ca

TRITON ENVIRONMENTAL CONSULTANTS HAS SUCCEEDED BY HAVING A COMMUNITY FOCUS Women Playing Increasingly Vital Role For Consultancy Firm

T

E R R ACE – O ver t h ree decades, Triton Environmental Consultants Ltd. has grown and adapted to meet the changing needs of clients and the marketplace to become one of Western Canada’s leading multitiered environmental consulting firms. “What’s unique about Triton is that we’re an employee-owned firm, meaning the employees who work here are its owners. Founded in 1989, the company’s been in business nearly 30 years, providing a wide range of environmental consulting services,” explained Codey Latimer, Triton’s Operations Manager at its Terrace office. “The company has certainly changed over the years, from the early 90s with a single office, to where we are now with eight offices across Western Canada.” A n environmental services company that supports industry, Triton has always been mindful of its responsibility to facilitate sustainable use of the environment in the best interests of its clients and their stakeholders. Many of the firm’s employees come from the biological sciences field, providing Triton with unmatched expertise and a proven dedication to preserving the environment. In addition, Triton team members often work in close association with First Nations and local stakeholders. Triton is representative of British Columbia’s changing demographics, which sees women increasingly playing leadership roles in both science and industry: “Within Triton, we are proud to have a number of women working on and leading some of the largest projects, not only in the northwest, but in western Canada,” expressed Shawna Hartman, Triton’s Business Development Manager in Terrace. Both Latimer and Hartman grew up in the Terrace region a nd t h at con ne ct ion to t he

community has played a key role in their efforts to hire locally whenever possible. “One of the things that our company prides itself on is supporting the communities where we work, both in the services we purchase locally and in our hiring practices.” Latimer said. “Many of our female employees are not just working on these projects, but leading them. They are managers and supervisors”, he continued. Government statistics indicate that more than 50 per cent of the Canadian workforce is female, but that the actual percentage of women in the construction sector is closer to five per cent – a disparity not in evidence at Triton, where the gender ratio among staff is closer to 50 / 50. Triton’s female staff members perform a myriad of functions, from conducting field sampling prior to the start of a construction project to overseeing the entire life cycle of a project as project manager. T r iton’s com m it ment a nd cooperation with various regional First Nations has also resulted in many local First Nations women finding successful and gainful employment in the construction industry. “Our company’s focus has always been career-building, not just providing jobs,” indicated Hartman. “What we try to provide are long term employment opportunities, where people can not only see a financial benefit, but develop a career path that might not otherwise be available to them. Triton offers its employees, male and female, with more than a place to go to work, but

According to Hartman, there is value in employing people with a personal stake in the development of their own region;

it allows the company to bring a unique, local perspective: “we have local expertise, which gives us a competitive edge.” “I’m proud to work for Triton,” affirmed Hartman, who is herself a registered professional biologist. “I’ve been with Triton for almost two decades and all around, it’s a great company to work for, and with.” Triton has become a Western Canadian leader in providing consulting services to the

GLOBAL CLIENTS CALLING CANADA’S LOG PEOPLE 100 Mile House Company Building Log Homes for 40 Years

1

00 MILE HOUSE - For 40 years Canada’s Log People Inc. has been sending their structures all over the globe, from Germany to Japan. Theo Wiering started the company i n 1978 at the age of 22, a nd has been running it ever since, building over 1400 log and timber structures that have been sent all over the world. Wiering and his talented staff primarily build these handcrafted homes with Engelmann Spruce, Douglas Fir, Lodgepole Pine, and Western Red Cedar. “95 per cent or more of our logs are premium grade, and we always try to work with the best possible product,” he says. Wieri ng has been bu i ld i ng log structures for about three years before starting his company at age 22. “For the first three years, we built on-site for people, but we discovered that it was a lot simpler to pre-build the houses at a single site, number all the logs, dismantle, and ship,” he says. During this time, he was involved in the hands-on side of the business, peeling many of the logs himself. “One of the reasons I was successful was because I had an enormous amount of energ y when I first started,” he says. “I put in enormous hours, and that’s why I was able to make it go.” The business began to take off in the early 80’s. In 1983, Canada’s Log People had a German visitor who was impressed by their operation. Through this contact, they sent their first house to Germany, and have sent about 35 custom log structures to the country since that point.

In 1984, they shipped their first log home to the US. This US market helped build the company, and by 1988, they were averaging about 40 houses per year. Over their 40 years, Wiering estimates that over 1400 log and timber frame buildings have been built by his company. “A bout 90 p er cent of ou r structures are regular houses for people,” says Wiering. “We typically build these houses for people who have been dreaming about having a log house for 10-20 years, so we typically bu i ld cu stom. T hey g ive u s their ideas, and we draw up the plans.” Canada’s Log People has been involved in all kinds of projects. In the late 80s, they were tasked with building a mini mall in Germany that specialized in selling natural products like foods and fertilizers. The project was shipped in 11 separate containers and re-constructed on site. “We’ve built numerous we call ‘trophy houses,” says Wiering. “These are large and intricate p ro j e c t s c o m m i s s i o n e d b y wealthy clients, and are pretty impressive when they’re done.” One such project was a home in Telluride, Colorado, which was built next to one of Tom Cruise’s homes near a high-end ski resort. In 2004, Canada’s Log People sent 14 loads of logs to build a house, dance hall, hay barn, pump house, and horse barn for a Boy Scouts of A merica camp. “We went down about three years ago to see the completed structure for the first time, and it was really cool to see our buildings getting used,” says Wiering. They have also built several restaurants, which have been sent to the mainland US, the

Yukon, and Germany. Several years ago they built the post and beam log work for the loca l 100 M ile House library, a project involving seven truckloads. “In 2009, we sent a house to an engineer in Norway, and he asked me to come down to see the sights,” he says. “We went to Oslo and saw a bunch of old log buildings and homes from hundreds of years ago. “They were made of spruce, and built with nothing but axes, but the quality was amazing. Some of these structures had been standing since the 1200s. T hese bu i ld i ngs l a st a long time.” Wiering believes the log home is a unique product that will retain its value for longer than many other traditional construction projects. “Some of these buildings [in Scandinavia] have been standing strong for centuries without a good roof or modern foundation. How much longer will our structures last with those features in place?” he says. For this reason, Wiering is optimistic that there will always be a need for his type of home. “One misconception a lot of

In 2009, Wiering sent one of his company’s log homes to Norway

people have is that log homes are out of reach or too expensive, but ours are very affordable for what you get,” he says. “The total finished cost of a log home is about the same as a custom frame house, and in all the years I’ve been in business, log homes are still just as affordable comparatively as they were 30 years ago.” Accord i ng to Wieri ng, the price of a log home project depends on how much money the client wants to spend on finish i ng, such as ex travaga nt kitchens, wood floors, custom bathroom fixtures, and the like. “I f you bu i ld a log home simple, like you would with a typical home, the pricing is a lot closer than a lot of people think,” he says. While he has a lot of optimism about the future of his industry, Wiering is concerned about the effect of excessive government building regulations on his industry. “T he amount of paperwork necessary now compared to 2030 years ago is way too lengthy,” he says. “The rules and regulations have increased 10-15 fold over the last few decades, and it’s getting worse every year.” Accord i ng to Wieri ng, the

Some of Canada’s Log People’s clients dream about their log homes for decades heavy loads of paperwork are often unhelpful for the consumer. “The National Building Code develops codes that apply all across the country, but with the different kinds of climates we have in Canada, they end up making a lot more unnecessary work for contractors,” he says. The biggest consequence of these regulations, says Wiering, is the impact they have on the price of construction. In spite of these difficulties, Canada’s Log People have been able to maintain their quality

of craftsmanship. Even after 40 years in business, Wiering is running the company, which has su r v ived massive obstacles, including the 2008-2011 recession. “I love what I do, and I still have a few good working years left in me, and I work with some talented employees,” he says. “I always say, if you like your job 50 per cent of the time, you’ve got it made. This job has taken me all over the world, and I really enjoy the work I do.” www.canadaslogpeople.com

restaurant encircles the oven, so diners can see into the oven’s fiery maw as their pizza is assembled and cooked. The kitchen is a culinary theatre-in-theround, with the oven as the star. Dishes are assembled in full view of guests. A central viewing area offers front-row seats bathed in warmth from the oven. Guests give the atmosphere and food rave reviews. Additional features are a second-storey mezzanine on one side of the restaurant linked to a second storey outdoor patio, with wood beams and fairy lights overhead. A trellis and garden planters are scattered amongst the tables. The planters are more than decorative. “Most of the plants in the garden are edible and make their way into different dishes,” Foley said. The pizzeria opened in December 2016 at 1253 3 rd Avenue and since then, Foley has enjoyed seeing guests’ reactions when they enter the unique space. “I love how people walk in the door for the first time and look around amazed,” he said. The design was home-grown, created by Foley and partner Fedorkiw, with invaluable input from Foley’s father Fergus, who is a civil engineer. Fergus Foley contributed engineering expertise while Foley and Fedorkiw planned the kitchen and guest experience. The result is stunning enough to have earned a Northern B.C.

friends. The friends developed their part of the merged building into a retail store. Foley, his father, and partner worked on converting the old building into a restaurant. I Preparation included going to Denver to learn how to make the Neapolitan pizza, which is based on a traditional, sourdough style dough. The dough rises for 72 hours, T producing a light, R airy crust. Traditional toppings are cheese and tomatoes but T R west-coast variations, Foley also planned including fiddleheads and artisan sausage. By May 2015, the retail store had opened. The pizzeria was eight weeks from opening, waiting for delivery of a massive, made-in-Italy pizza oven, which had been delayed by a strike at a Texas port.

on the street watching the blaze. “I watched for a couple of hours in disbelief. The fire department did an excellent job to save NancyOs.” Given the age of the buildings, the cause of the fire was never determined. After two months, Foley got permission to remove the rubble and resume building. In the meantime, the Foleys and Fedorkiw re-designed the restaurant, which would now be built from the ground up. The final design gave the 130-seat restaurant 2400 square feet on the main floor plus an additional 1400 square feet in the second floor mezzanine and outdoor patio. Between NancyO and Betulla Burning, the restaurants employ approximately 70 people. “I’ve very happy with how it turned out. Business has been good,” Foley said. He is also fired up about his next venture: custom butchering and retail/wholesale sales of artisan sausages, both of which were originally developed to serve NancyOs and Betulla Burning.

LOCAL RENTAL SOLUTIONS: RIGHT CHOICE FOR EQUIPMENT RENTALS Firm Has Been Serving Commercial, Industrial & Construction Clients Since 2016

P

RINCE GEORGE – Already a recognized leader in the business of providing equipment and temporary heating solutions for commercial, industrial and construction clients across the north – Local Rental Solutions (LRS) has now become the only authorized dealer for Wacker Neuson compact construction and excavating equipment in Northern BC. Not bad for a company that only opened its doors a little over a year ago. “In a way you could say that we’re in the business of keeping business working. Rather than calling three different companies, renting a heater here and renting a loader there and then calling the fuel company to look after service they can just give us a call,” explained company President Dustin Graham, one of the company’s three owners, with the others being Mike Ostberg and Ed Nicholls. Launched in 2016, Local Rental Solutions is housed in a 7,000 square foot combination shop and administrative centre located at 2180 Robertson Road in Prince George. With a staff of eight, LRS’s one and a half acre lot is filled with a large inventory of equipment used by construction companies, developers, municipalities and others from all across the north and beyond. From loaders and excavators to scissor-lifts, industrial lighting solutions and compactors LRS has the equipment, and the trained personnel to keep its customers productive and profitable. “Local Rental Solutions isn’t a name we just picked randomly, it really does reflect everything that we do and believe in,” Graham said. “Local really represents us in the community, how we want to conduct ourselves and do business in Prince George. We’re rooted and actively involved in the community, supporting local enterprise and local people in the community.” For Graham the other element, rental, is at the heart of everything the company does and hopes to become. “Ultimately our goal is to deliver solutions to our clients, in the form of equipment and service that will keep them operating. That’s how we came up with the name, to keep us focused on what it is we do, and how we conduct ourselves.” Graham and his two partners have between them more than half a century of experience in the commercial / industrial rental field, an expertise and understanding of the needs of business that can only come from years of practical experience. A b o u t o n e t h i rd of L R S’s

Launched in 2016 Local Rental Solutions was created to service the professional marketplace

The firm also specializes in temporary heating solutions, serving customers across Northern BC

“We strive to deliver practical solutions while standing behind all of our equipment and our services with excellence not excuses.”

workload is devoted to its temporary heating solutions division. With a gas contracting license and a team that includes certified gas fitters and qualified mechanics, Local Rental Solutions can provide a full range of temporary industrial heating solutions to keep remote camps functioning, and construction sites productive year round. Based in the north, and understanding the unique challenges of working in Northern British Columbia, Local Rental Solutions can match real world needs with exactly the right equipment to keep its clients working. Much more t h a n merely a rental outlet, the LRS staff will always deliver, install, leak test and professionally tune all of the equipment it rents to ensure safe operation with maximum fuel efficiency. The company was founded

and has been successfully built on three solid pillars, Safety, Trust and Reliability – a corporate philosophy that is integral to everything it does, rents, sells or says. “It’s safety first in everything we do. We don’t just drop off the equipment and drive away. We ensure the customer understands how to correctly and safely operate everything we rent. We’re also always available to answer questions, and if there is a problem we’re right there to fix it,” he said “We’re also honest and upfront in all of our business dealings.

IS IT TIME FOR A TAX REVOLT BY BUSINESS OWNERS?

MARK MACDONLD

A

s class warfare has taken the Canadian political landscape by storm, what can businesses do to escape the hail of tax increases and extra fees unleashed by elected officials? With populist catch phrases like “one per centers”, asking businesses to “pay a little bit more”, and “income sprinkling” becoming accepted terms of reference for the business community, it is clear that many Canadians see the current anti-business rhetoric as a leveling of the playing field. “Tax the rich”, aka business owners, is what they’ve said they were going to do, and they’re doing it, with nary a reprieve in sight. What, if anything, can be done to stem the tide of the rising minimum wage, Medical Service Plan payroll hikes and Canada Pension Plan increases? Not to mention the

foreign buyers’ tax, the “speculation” tax, and another NDP whopper, a new school tax levied against property owners? When does it end? How can it end? A tax revolt. A full-fledged withholding of taxes and levies that goes directly from business bank accounts and payrolls. Are we there yet? Is it possible? Absolutely it is, and truth be told, this might be the only way to finally get government’s attention and get them to stop milking the business community. Tell Ottawa, Victoria and your city of choice that the udder is getting dry, and they’ve siphoned off far more than what is acceptable. Today’s anti-business governments are reminiscent of the old-time “shopping sprees” of yesteryear, when winning contestants would run for their lives down the aisles of grocery stores, hair and clothing bristling in the wind as they two-armed every item they could grasp and whisk it into their carts before reaching the till. Clearly, they see their seizure of government power as “their turn” to withdraw funds from the till as they see fit. Rather than cultivate an environment where business can prosper and therefore create more government tax revenue

through increased sales, they see businesses as loot stashers, ripe for the picking by 21 st Century Robin Hoods to redistribute to the poor and their own pet projects. It’s not enough for them to leave the business community alone and redirect surpluses to projects they deem worthy; it’s obviously payback time for business owners they see as worthy of repercussions for “filling their bank accounts off the backs of workers”. A tax revolt might be tough for businesses to pull off, since our unofficial moniker seems to be “Tax me, I’m Canadian”. But surely we’re getting to the point where our version of the Boston Tea Party is becoming a viable option. What do you think governments would do if businesses – in unison – decided to withhold the various taxes and fees they regularly collect from customers and employees and remit to the government? How long would it take before they raised the white flag and realized this time, they really, really have gone too far? Not just that, but they’d ratchet back some of the punitive tax measures they’ve introduced. Isn’t it worth a try? It’s been done before. During Bob Rae’s ill-fated term as Ontario’s only NDP premier two

decades ago, a tax revolt in London was credited with choking off the government’s cash flow. T hey d id so by w ith hold i ng property taxes until sensibility returned, and participants were encouraged to place those taxes in an interest bearing bank account that would yield at least as much as any potential penalty the government might try to instill. The pinch helped, followed by the Common Sense Revolution under Mike Harris. A Nanaimo city councilor once said, aloud: “We will tax until we find opposition”. That was just prior to the City of Nanaimo unilaterally implementing a “head tax” back in 2001, where businesses were to pay $110 apiece for anyone in their employ who had a professional designation. It would have cost one real estate company over $10,000 a year. Busi nesses were outraged, and the Chamber of Commerce sprung into action, demanding an immediate rescinding of the bylaw, or else businesses would boycott paying business license fees to the city. A filibuster at the weekly council meeting featured prominent members of the business community taking their turns at the lectern, lambasting council for their lack of foresight and brazen

tax attack. Business owners and managers crammed into council chambers to support the speakers, who continued to speak forcefully and demand instant retraction. Initially, council members, led by the mayor, sniffed at the delegates. Their disdain soon turned to soberness as they realized they were faced with a determined group that wouldn’t take no for an answer. Late in the evening, they called for a 30-day memorandum to study the issue further. The tax was completely withdrawn after the month was up. It did work. Politicians can be backed up. But it does take a unified front, determined to not take no for an answer. If governments of all levels were to be confronted by the people who actually do pay most of the bills for public services, either through their own companies or the payrolls they cover, and demand fairness, there would be positive results. Even hard-ofhearing idealists in government can sense they’ve gone too far. So, M r. a nd M rs. Busi ness Owner: Are you ready for a tax revolt, with the sole purpose of telling governments to stop their punitive and growth-prohibiting taxation? Let us know what you think: info@businessexaminer.ca

own task force warning that such a move will undermine the province’s competitive position. Making matters worse, just as the U.S. cut its top federal personal income tax rate, BC created a new, higher rate of 16.8 per cent, making the combined federalprovincial top rate a hair away from 50 per cent and the ninth highest rate in Canada and the U.S. This shows a worrying disregard for the ability of the province to attract and retain skilled workers and entrepreneurs. In keeping with its high tax mantra, the government also ra ised ta xes on h igh-va lued homes and “luxury” cars. New regulations are being contemplated on labour in addition to a substantial minimum wage hike. It’s all about the signals. And the signals as a whole don’t instil confidence among investors. All this is happening against a backdrop of an enduring investment problem in the province. For more than three decades, investment per worker in BC - a measure of the tools available to workers to improve their

productivity - has lagged behind the rest of the country. The most recent data (for 2016) shows BC’s investment per worker 19 per cent below Canada’s overall level. This means BC workers have significantly less capital (machines, equipment and technology) to do their job than workers in other provinces. The situation has worsened in recent years. Business investment in BC (excluding residential structures) fell from 2014 to 2016 by nearly a fifth after adjusting for inflation. A nd yet, the govern ment’s latest policies will likely further discourage investment and ultimately reduce the long-term prosperity of British Columbians. This is taking the province down the wrong track. We saw this movie before, in the 1990s. It doesn’t end well.

BC CLOSING DOORS TO INVESTMENT

THE FRASER INSTITUTE CHARLES LAMMAM AND HUGH MACINTYRE

M

ore British Columbians think the province is on the wrong track than the right one, according to a new Angus Reid poll. And there’s good reason to be concerned about BC’s policy direction. Since assuming office last year, Premier John Horgan’s government has done little to reassure investors and entrepreneurs that British Columbia is an attractive place to invest. In fact, its policies have signalled the opposite. Consider the attempt to block

the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project, which had already been approved by a thorough federal review. In the 11th hour, the government erected an unexpected roadblock, arguing in court that BC has the right to stop the project. The ensuing war of words - and legal action - between Alberta and BC has been well-documented. The result? Immense policy uncertainty. Partly because of this pipeline project, BC - and Canada more generally - is gaining an international reputation as a place where major resource projects can’t get done. And this is turning investors and entrepreneurs away from the province at a time when serious concerns already exist about BC as a destination for resource projects. In a recent survey of upstream oil and gas executives, BC ranked dead last among Canadian provinces and in the bottom quarter internationally for investment attractiveness. While the provincial government hopes to see liquefied natural gas (LNG) development,

pipeline obstructionism has undermined its credibility on that file. Moreover, BC’s tax competitiveness has taken a major hit recently. The province’s longstanding high effective tax rate on investment (one of the highest in the developed world) was made worse when the government increased the statutory corporate income tax rate (from 11 per cent to 12 per cent) shortly after taking office. At the same time, the United States has dramatically eased its taxation of capital, which will encourage investment dollars to go south. Additionally, at a time when the U.S. is eschewing carbon pricing, BC is significantly raising its carbon tax rate (by 66 per cent, from $30 to $50 per tonne) while abandoning any pretence of revenue neutrality - whereby new revenues into government coffers are offset with new tax cuts. BC is also replacing Medical Service Premiums with a new employer-based payroll health tax, despite the government’s

INNOVATIVE MARKETING FIRM MAXIMIZES ITS CLIENT’S ONLINE IMPACT “Our strength as an agency stems from the knowledge of our team.”

Marwick Internet Marketing Is A Fully Certified Premier Google Partner Agency

CHRISTIAN THOMSON

S

QUAMISH – The Internet has been the catalyst for a marketing revolution unlike anything that has come before it. Businesses have succeeded or withered on the strength of their online presence alone. Since its inception Marwick Internet Marketing has been striving to put their client’s message before the right audience at precisely the right time, with results that have seen the firm expand beyond anything its founders could have imagined. “The digital landscape is always changing so I’d say that our goal for our clients is to help local companies of any size get an edge over their competition. So that when the consumer is picking up their cell phone and they ask it to ‘find me a lawyer’ our clients would be the first one they find,” explained company President Christian Thomson. “T he consu mer, tha n ks to the technology they’re carrying around in their pocket, are ahead of the companies when it comes to locating a business. The way consumers conduct searches today is typically far ahead of

PRESIDENT, MARWICK INTERNET MARKETING

Marwick Internet Marketing operates a number of offices but its company headquarters is located in Squamish most people’s marketing efforts. Our goal is to bring our customers up to date and up to speed so that when the customer is looking for a lawyer, or a pizza or a car dealership our client is the one they find first.” A professiona l su rfer from Europe, Thomson was first exposed to the power of marketing and of the tremendous potentials of the Internet and Social Media, by working alongside of the sponsors of his competitive

sport. “I found it exciting how they had adapted and adopted these new marketing channels. As time went on and I sought career options beyond surfing I realized how digital marketing could benefit businesses of all kinds. That was essentially the starting point for this agency,” he explained. With a current staff count of about 14 and with its head office located in Squamish, Marwick Internet Marketing today

operates satellite offices in Vancouver, Northern BC and Victoria. The company’s skills and proven record of success are so impressive it has been certified as a Premier Google Partner Agency, making it one of only a handful of firms in the country to be so designated – a genuine source of pride for Thomson. “Our strength as an agency stems from the knowledge of our team. It’s that skill and that dedication to doing the job right

that has allowed us to receive this level of Google certification, which provides us with an edge in the marketplace,” he explained. Describing itself as “The Search Marketing Agency” - Marwick Internet Marketing offers a wide range of services, from providing Search Engine Optimization to enhanced web presence, to Pay Per Click advertising to even providing such marketing tools as YouTube advertising and serving as a Google Shopping Specialist. Tailoring each campaign to match the needs of the specific client, there is no one size fits all approach when it comes to 21 st Century marketing. Services aside, for Thomson the real strength of his agency 1 are the skills and knowledge of eB his staff. “As a Premier Google S–pag Partner Agency, we have moreaWaRd ge B1 a B –p qualified staff than most agenRe dS VI aR at cies, which provides our clients W a Wd B Ro Re with a higher return ond Ctheir VI ad ed t R a o d the spending, which is Rpart of s mction eC i W t o CR jec nstru d bottom line of any» business,” Rd pro the co s me n nd t Co a 3 s l e n 1 s he said. e n i t i ctio R 20 rI » ew wome ojec onstru ve n ou ’ www.marwickmarketing.com r c s o pr he c an ndi d f et ck g Bu llin Fi

HEALTH IN THE WORKPLACE DEREK SIENKO

I

n May, we celebrated North American Occupational Safety and Health Week which has the goal of educating the public on the importance of preventing injury and illness in the workplace, home and community. To continue this important discussion, I spoke with Dr. Ken Adams from Lighthouse Chiropractic about some of the ways that employers can promote the health of their employees. What area do you think employers should be paying more attention to when it comes to health and safety in the workplace? “An increasing percentage of our older population is continuing to work into what would be considered as retirement years. In fact, one recent study showed that a quarter of working Canadians surveyed expect to work

active roles in the workforce, is that they will be doing so while also trying to manage chronic and degenerative health conditions like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and arthritis. For example, arthritis - osteoarthritis (OA) in particular - has a serious impact on older workers. In the spine, OA happens in a predictable pattern, and its progression can be positively or negatively altered by a number of factors including (but not limited to) obesity, stress, physical exercise, nutrition, history of trauma or surgery, and posture.” What can employers do to support the older employees who are living with these conditions? “In my experience, addressing posture has the most consistent impact in management and prevention of OA. If you are an employer I strongly recommend bringing in a professional to teach your team specifically how to improve their posture. It will help the current generation of older employees, but it will also help the next generation to avoid a lot of the problems that our current working seniors are facing.” For more information, join us and Dr. Ken Adams on June 22nd 9:30 am – 10:30 am for our Webinar or contact us at info@diversifiedrehab.ca.
