Researchers with the Peace Region Palaeontology Research Centre in Tumbler Ridge are requesting a $27 million endowment from BC Hydro so they can continue discovering and documenting the region’s fossil resources. By Matthew Bains TUMBLER RIDGE – The Peace Region Palaeontology Research Centre in Tumbler Ridge would like to have funding security for the future so it can continue digging up the past and is looking to BC Hydro for help. Palaeontologists with the research centre have requested from the Crown corporation that a $27 million endowment be created to help hire more staff, purchase more supplies and equipment, and enhance the centre’s ability to store and catalogue fossil resources. The request comes from a desire to see fossils in the Peace River Valley discovered, documented and salvaged before the proposed Site C Dam becomes opera-

You breath a sigh of relief and make your way home but, just like on the way to the grocery store, you face the dilemmas of potholes in the streets, curb cuts and though they may seem slight to most people, hills. Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound easy does it? Well, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the life of someone in a wheelchair and, with something as simple as a trip to the grocery store, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the challenges they face. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a challenge members of the community took on recently at an Accessible Awareness Day on June 3 and it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long before reality reared its head.

Some  thoughts  about  proposed  HST Reconsider  decision Editor: After reading the Mr. Pat Pimmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter defending and advocating for the proposed HST, a glaring error of reasoning stood out. Mr. Pimm defends the proposed BC HST on the grounds that it will be the lowest HST in Canada. He compares BCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed HST with those of Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick as well as to the VAT in Quebec and the proposed HST in Ontario. He argues that BCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed HST is superior to the combined taxes in each of these other jurisdictions because ours will be 12 per cent and the others are all 13 per cent. First of all, Mr. Pimm sets the boundaries of the debate by comparing BC only with other provincial jurisdictions that already have or are proposing a combined sales tax system. By comparing BC only to other provinces who have gone or are going with D FRPELQHG WD[ 0U 3LPP KDV GUDZQ DQ DUWLĂ&#x20AC;FLDO boundary around this debate. Why is BC only compared with other provinces that already have or are soon to implement an HST of their own? Of course within these imposed limits to the debate, BC looks a bit better, albeit only marginally (12 per cent as compared to 13 per cent). But why are we only comparing BC to other provinces with their own existing or future HST? Secondly, all the provinces Mr. Pimm compares BC to are a long way away and are not among the provinces that BC competes most with for business. In my mind Mr. Pimmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s argument in favour of the HST is weakest not because of what he says but because of what he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say. Looming large in the debate over the HST is something Mr. Pimm only mentions in passing: Alberta. The province next door. Both provinces have forestry, farming, ranching, oil and gas, tourism, manufacturing, mining, power generation, technology, etc. But Alberta has no HST and is proposing none and that is because Alberta has no PST to contemplate combining with the federal GST. This gives Alberta, our closest neighbour and without question our biggest provincial competitor, a distinct economic edge over us. When Mr. Pimm, referring to the implementation of the HST, states, â&#x20AC;&#x153;this will without question be the single most important thing WRKHOSOHYHOWKHSOD\LQJĂ&#x20AC;HOGEHWZHHQ%ULWLVK&ROXPbia and Alberta,â&#x20AC;? I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but ask the obvious. Can the provincial Liberals not think of a single thing that ZRXOGOHYHOWKHSOD\LQJĂ&#x20AC;HOGZLWKRXUELJJHVWSURYLQcial competitor far more than implementing the HST? If not, let me enlighten them. How about eliminating the PST so that we have the same 5 per cent tax as $OEHUWD"7KDWSOD\LQJĂ&#x20AC;HOGLVDORWPRUHOHYHOWKDQ the one the provincial government is proposing which would still have a distinct slant toward Alberta.

Whether you take things as they currently stand, with a 5 per cent GST and a 7 per cent PST or you combine the PST and GST to form an HST, 7 per cent plus 5 per cent still equals 12 per cent. This is compared with Alberta, where 5 per cent GST plus zero per cent PST equals 5 per cent sales tax. One small example: anyone in Northeast BC knows that if you want to make a major purchase it often pays to drive an hour or two and save 7 per cent. How will implementing the HST reverse this trend? Easy answer: it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Until now, BCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way to deal with this has been to try to punish people and companies that do WKLV%XWDOOWKRVHIRONVDUHGRLQJLVSUDFWLFLQJĂ&#x20AC;VFDO responsibility and free-market thinking. The market dictates what people will do and if the market is more attractive elsewhere that is where people will go. It is the same for attracting business to our province. Businesses are attracted to jurisdictions where taxes are lower, not combined. The HST doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t substantially change the thing which matters most for economic activity: the bottom line. Mr. Pimm concludes his letter with what he undoubtedly sees as the point that should end all debate on this issue: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Almost every credible, leading economist in the country agrees: Harmonizing sales tax is the best thing we can do to strengthen our economy, improve our competitiveness and create jobs.â&#x20AC;? I guarantee that the only way almost every credible, leading economist in the country (including the C.D. Howe Institute) would say this is if they were told from the start that eliminating the PST was not an option and not part of the discussion. I know of no economist, credible or otherwise, that would tell you 12 per cent tax is more favourable for attracting business, fostering growth, creating jobs and spurring economic investment than 5 per cent tax. No economist except perhaps those who are part of our provincial government. As to whether I favour Gordon Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s HST or Bill VanderZalmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s separate GST and PST, frankly I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know which one would be better. But in my mind having to decide which of these two options is better is like being asked which is the best way to travel the Alaska Highway, by horse or by mule. This LV DUWLĂ&#x20AC;FLDOO\ OLPLWLQJ WKH GHEDWH WR KDYLQJ WR SLFN between the better of two inferior options. I prefer travelling the Alaska Highway by car. And I prefer a third way when it comes to debating the future of goods and services taxation in our province: forget the HST and eliminate the PST instead. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see a referendum on that. Dan Glover Fort St. John

Editor: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still not too late for the BC Liberal government to take the initiative and reinstate the municipal business vote to bring back some accountability in civic elections. Unfortunately the Local Government Elections Task Force could not reach a consensus on this issue, even after the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) supplied a 12-page submission to the group. Until 1993 small businesses in BC enjoyed the opportunity to participate in civic elections and have a voice in how decisions are made regarding the assessment of taxes by voting for candidates WKDWSURSRVHGĂ&#x20AC;VFDOUHVSRQVLELOLW\DVWKHLUSODWIRUP8QIRUWXQDWHO\ this right was removed by the government of the day and successive elected civic slates have imposed exorbitant property taxes on small businesses, employers that are the backbone of BCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s burgeoning economic recovery. Even local civic politicians have taken up the cause and are throwing their support behind this proposal. They realize that in order for their business communities to grow and prosper, a balance must be struck between residents and business interests. Donald Leung Burnaby, BC

PALAEONTOLOGY CENTRE CONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 An allocation plan prepared by McCrea shows a $3 million cost ($500,000 a year from 2010 to 2015) to conduct surveys of the Peace River/Williston Lake areas, with a particular focus on marine vertebrates and terrestrial vertebrate tracks. Specifically, the research centre is proposing to excavate, recover, prepare and store the world’s largest marine vertebrate fossil ever found, an ichthyosaur (marine reptile) found north of Williston Lake in the 1990’s. Palaeontologist Lisa Buckley said it’s even bigger than a 23-metre-long one found north of Fort St. John in the 1990’s, which is housed in the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology in Drumheller, Alta. “This is one example of really unique, region-specific fossils that come from this area,” said Buckley. They would also like to uncover and document more of a track site discovered near the WAC Bennett Dam in 2008 that could be more than 2,400 square metres in size. They say the site could be developed into a major tourist attraction for the region. However, in order to take on all of that work, they are requesting $16 million to hire two more palaeontologists – establishing four permanent research chairs at the centre – and cover the costs of field research, travel, equipment and other costs. Another $6 million would establish and maintain four permanent technical assistant positions. Buckley said those positions would be critical to preparing,

restoring and replicating fossils so they could be put on display for the education and enjoyment of the public. The remaining $2 million would establish and maintain a palaeontological reference library. Buckley said having secured funding instead of having to fundraise every year would give them a lot more time to focus on research and field work. “We’ve been doing a pretty good job with what we’ve had so far, but just imagine what we could do if we could fully devote our energies to being the researchers and the fossil collectors,” she said. McCrea said securing operational funding would also make the business case much stronger in pursuing capital funds for a larger, purpose-built museum in Tumbler Ridge. He added an endowment of this kind is not unprecedented for museums. “In our profession we see this happen a lot where companies will grant museums endowment funds or private funds towards a particular project,” he said. The Peace River Regional District threw its support behind the endowment request in a vote on May 27. “This endowment would bring some stability to our research centre,” said Tumbler Ridge Mayor Larry White. He said the museum continues to draw tourists to the town and the region. “Just the other day, a family made a plan to come up to Tumbler Ridge all the way from 100 Mile House just to see the museum.”

THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY The Northern Gateway Pipeline project will be built by one of the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World and one of Canada’s greenest employers. Environment and Safety Measures The pipeline will be buried underground at a depth of one metre, which meets or exceeds federal regulatory depth requirements. The route was carefully chosen to minimize the number of sensitive water crossings and avoid critical habitat.

Through Enbridge’s Neutral Footprint Program, Northern Gateway will work with conservation and environmental partners to counter the impacts to land and trees caused by the project.

Tree for a tree Planting a tree for every tree removed to create the pipeline right-of-way The pipeline will be monitored and controlled 24/7 from our operations centre.

Acre for an acre

Well-proven environmental safeguards, including safety control valves and leak detection systems will be implemented.

Setting aside an acre of land for habitat conservation for every acre of wilderness impacted

All vessels entering the Kitimat Marine Terminal will be modern and doublehulled and will be escorted by custombuilt tugs.

Kilowatt for a kilowatt

Ensuring Safe Passage

All tankers visiting Kitimat will be safely guided by certified marine pilots. These master mariners know the intricacies of BC’s coastline and work together with the captains of ships to safely navigate vessels into our ports.

Environmental Protection A team of over two hundred environmental experts and scientists carefully examined the proposed route, focusing on marine biology, soil, vegetation, wildlife, water resources, fish, archaeology and other areas. The findings of their analysis were incorporated into our planning to ensure safe and environmentally responsible construction and operations.

Creating a kilowatt of renewable power for every kilowatt of power used by pipeline operations

We’re building more than pipelines We’re building sustainable communities through jobs and investment. And we are doing it to the highest standards of safety and environmental responsibility.

The City of Dawson Creek held the inaugural â&#x20AC;&#x153;Solar Daysâ&#x20AC;? on the grounds outside of City Hall on May 28. The event showcased some of the many applications of solar power being used around Dawson Creek, including in residential construction and the new interpretive centre being built at the Northern Lights College campus. Here, Coun. Cheryl Shuman shows off her familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s holiday trailer, equipped with solar panels that power the appliances inside. Duncan Redfearn with the City of Dawson Creek explains how a solar hot water system in City Hall saves on the cost of heating the building. There are similar systems installed in six other public buildings in the city.

For construction and landscaping purposes, we offer a large selection of Concrete Septic Tanks, Treatment Plants, Manholes, Catch Basins, Pump Outs, Curbs & Highway Barriers, and Custom Precast Products.
