Dawson Creek shines as Canada’s first solar city By Jill Earl
planning at that time, gave him the idea. Solar Cities have been designated around the world by either governments or industry associations depending on the country. “In Canada we didn’t have any criteria for a solar city so what I did was do a study, so I did research and looked at literature from around the world and came up with a set of criteria based on international models for solar cities, boiled that down to 10 points,” said Haugen. He then sent out those 10 points to 25 Canadian cities that have been involved in the Canadian Solar Industries Association, are advanced in their sustainability practices and have met some of the European standards. He also sent the criteria to the Canadian Solar Industries Association and Natural Resources Canada for their comments and feedback; he then conducted interviews with the cities and those who agreed to be a part of his study. He eventually changed all 10 points he had originally established. “The Canadian set of criteria is quite different from then what it is in other parts of the world, but it truly is a Canadian set of criteria because it’s from the cities of Canada and the groups that have the knowledge of what it means to be a Solar City,” Haugen said. Any city can be deemed a Solar City through the project by demonstrating that they have met or have plans to meet the criteria which includes: 1.The municipality has a climate change plan with
DAWSON CREEK - Last Saturday Dawson Creek was named Canada’s first Solar City by the Canadian Solar Cities Project. Residents celebrated what the city has proclaimed as “Solar Day” at Northern Lights College with the naming ceremony, tours of Energy House, building solar ovens, kite flying, a BBQ and draws. “Of course it’s a great honour to be awarded the distinction of being the first Solar City but really the exciting part is now we get to go out as the Canadian Solar Cities Project and inspire other communities to do the same thing and we’re hopeful that we’ll have hundreds of Solar Cities by the end of the year,” said Coun. Cheryl Shuman, who is also a director on the Canadian Solar Cities Project board. Bob Haugen is the executive director of the Canadian Solar Cities Project, a nonprofit nongovernment organization created last month as the national leadership to administer and award cities as Solar Cities. Haugen is the coordinator of the renewable energy programs at Northern Lights College in Dawson Creek, and is the creator of the project. Haugen, entering in a master’s program four years ago at Royal Roads University in Victoria while holding his position at the college, decided to do a research project to create criterion to designate cities as solar cities when Emanuel Machado, the City’s sustainability director and the director of corporate

Treaty 8 First Nations reclaim Charlie Lake Caves By Kyla Corpuz
CHARLIE LAKE – Treaty 8 First Nations celebrated Aboriginal Day on Jun. 21 by reclaiming land where their ancestors once thrived. “The fact that we are doing our Aboriginal celebration on the property of our first home is just outstanding, it’s a great day for the Danne Zaa,” said West Moberly First Nations Chief Roland Willson. Doig River, Prophet River and West Moberly First Nations purchased the prehistoric Charlie Lake caves property on May. 29. The land encompasses the caves and a large home, which they are looking to turn into a bed and breakfast, until further planning. “Our long-term vision is to create a cultural heritage and possible museum to recognize the indigenous people, the Danne Zaa, the Cree, who lived in this area and the significant importance of that,” said Willson. The site dates back about 10,500 years. Recovered artifacts show there was early occupation believed was harvested by ancestors of the Danne Zaa/Dunne-za people. “When my late grandpa passed on, like 2002, he remembers well and he tell us stories about how people come here to use the area,” said Doig River First Nations Chief Norman Davis. “So that’s why there’s a lot of artifacts.” In 1974 an archeologist from SFU, Knut Fladmark, found the area was hiding a lot of artifacts, and in 1983 Fladmark came back to do a full excavation of the land. “The name Charlie Lake cave site isn’t too accurate because most of the artifacts were found in the gulley of the cave,” said Karen Aird, cultural heritage planer with Treaty 8. “They did some testing inside the cave but didn’t find any artifacts inside the cave, it was inside the gully, and one of the reasons for that is that when this landscape was forming this was all sandstone up here, and there was a movement about 14 to 15,000 years ago, which part of the cave fell down, so the area in front of was filled with soil … Over 12,000 years we had a really good record of occupation because it was protected and filled with soil.” DNA testing of bison bones are linked to the Indian Creek and Mill Iron sites in Montana, which suggests that travel was coming up from the south into northeast B.C.
“The other thing they found were two raven skeletons, and the raven skeletons indicate that there was ceremonial practice here as well as female mandible and the mandible might have been used for ceremonial, because that was the only part that was found, unfortunately the human remain part wasn’t documented properly, so we don’t much about it,” said Aird, adding that the whole area is one archeological site. Neighbours to the new Treaty 8 house presented the Chiefs with arrowheads that were found in their backyard. Overtime the caves have been vandalized, inside and out there are signs of graffiti written in what looks like white chalk. The previous owners of the land tried to protect the caves, but with it being out of sight from the house, it was hard to manage. “They tried their best to protect the caves but even now people come up and party in the caves and spray paint the caves, they don’t respect them,” said Willson. “The province, once they identified, they should have put in parameters and do certain things to protect it, which they failed to do.” The area is now considered tribal land and Treaty 8 have asked the public to refrain from accessing the land without written permission.

Project award the designations they also hope to host workshops and engage other communities by sharing best practices and models. The project hopes to attract applications to become a solar city by sending municipalities letters through the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. Once the project is more established they want to promote green initiatives taken on by municipalities through their website to give other municipalities ideas of the possibilities. Haugen says that projects and initiatives through local governments are the best way to affect change. “Municipalities are the most direct connection to citizens and can make the most change happen as far as projects like climate change projects or sustainability projects, so that’s really where the leadership has to happen…We look at the Canadian Solar Cities Project as a way to influence public policy in a really direct way,” he said.

and renewable and sustainability for years in the country, that’s why they meet the criteria,” he adds. Haugen admits that he may be a little biased in awarding Dawson Creek as the first Solar City as the Canadian Solar Cities Project board includes city residents, a past resident, city staff members and Dawson Creek through the Federation of Canadian Municipalities funded the study to develop criteria. “Part of the reason why Dawson Creek is really at the top of the list is because we have the college here, Northern Lights College, B.C.’s energy college and we’re also involved in the oil and gas industry and solar and renewable energy, and the city is totally advanced as far as sustainability practices are concerned. So Dawson Creek is a unique place in the country in that we have a such a rich energy heritage here,” Haugen said. Not only does the Canadian Solar Cities

HIV is a real concern within our communities. You can contract HIV primarily through unprotected sex and by sharing needles. HIV can live in your body for years without you knowing and all the while you can be passing it to others. At least 25 per cent of people who are HIV+ do not know and these 25 per cent are estimated to be responsible for 75 per cent of new infections. Northern Health, in collaboration with its community partners, is working with the Province of BC to prevent the spread of HIV by expanding HIV testing, treatment, and support services to British Columbians.

Responsible Natural Resource Development
fact is that all Canadians stand to benefit in very real ways from the wealth created by these developments.” But we must seize the moment, while being environmentally responsible. These opportunities are not going to last forever. We’re going to have to compete with other resource-rich countries for those vital job-creating investment dollars. And, acting on this opportunity means putting in place a world-class regulatory system to review major projects. That is why our Conservative Government is acting in Economic Action Plan 2012 with our plan for Responsible Resource Development. Responsible Resource Development is founded on four pillars: 1) to make project reviews more predictable and timely
while still maintaining thoroughness; 2) to reduce duplication of project reviews; 3) to strengthen environmental protection; and 4) to enhance Aboriginal consultation. Responsible Resource Development will create good, skilled, well-paying jobs in cities and communities across Canada by streamlining the review process for major economic projects. The time is now for Canada’s immense resources. We know that it is not only possible, but absolutely necessary to ensure timely, efficient and effective project reviews, while at the same time act as good stewards of our environment as we continue to develop our natural resources. We CAN do both!
– A Practical Point of View Part II
MP Report By Bob Zimmer, MP Prince George-Peace River In my last MP Report I discussed how, in society today, we all use natural resources, and how we can support the responsible development of these resources while also being good stewards for the environment. In this report, I would like to focus on the economic and social benefits to our community in developing our natural resources responsibly. As the 21st century unfolds, it is increasingly clear that Canada’s energy and natural resources are massive assets to our country in the global economy. This is especially true given that few countries are as blessed with natural resources as we are, allowing us to become more competitive in attracting investment dollars. Economically, our natural resources industries, including energy, mining and minerals processing, and forestry, account for more than 10 per cent of our gross domestic product (total value of goods and services produced in Canada) and provide close to 800,000 jobs in Canada. In the next 10 years, more than 500 new projects representing over $500 billion in new investments will be proposed for Canada in the natural resources sector. In British Columbia, companies are looking to invest $83.9 billion over the next ten years. This investment will create hundreds of thousands of jobs and economic growth across Canada. From manufacturing to the service sector to the financial sector – every sector of Canada’s economy has something to gain from resource development. Socially, the resource sector generates tens of billions of dollars worth of tax revenues and royalties annually for governments to fund our many compassionate programs. For example, over the past five years, the oil and gas industry has contributed an average of $22 billion a year to government revenues, revenues which help to pay for everything, from education and health care, to roads and bridges. In fact, our Conservative Government has committed to increasing health care transfers to the provinces. Under our new investment, health care funding will increase from $30 billion per year in 2013-14 to more than $38 billion per year in 2018-19. Total funding for health care over that five year period will be at least $178 billion. One of the reasons why we have the funding to do so is thanks to the tax revenues from our natural resources. As the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters has said, “We often think of energy and resource developments in remote terms – geographically removed from the lives of most Canadians. The
Comments invited on development of ALC fee structure
The Ministry of Agriculture is inviting public comment on developing the Agricultural Land Commission’s (ALC) fee structure to support its evolution into a more self-sustaining organization. The survey seeks comments on four areas the ALC has identified as possible sources to augment its provincial funding: 1. A review of existing ALC application fees, which were last increased in 2002, for exclusion, subdivision, non-farm use and utility corridor applications. 2. A new service fee to support the ALC’s work to ensure that criteria on conditionally approved applications are met.
3. A new fee for the ALC’s ongoing monitoring and site inspections of long-term approvals. 4. A new fee for the ALC’s oversight and administration of delegation agreements with local governments and other authorities. The funding derived from these sources is intended to provide the ALC with the ability to focus on its core mandate of encouraging farming, as well as improving compliance and enforcement activities, online resources, training for staff and commissioners and conducting targeted Agricultural Land Reserve boundary reviews.
The survey provides an opportunity for British Columbians to contribute to the strengthening of the ALC. Comments can be provided at: http://www.agf.gov.bc.ca/aboutind/ALC_ Consultation\index.htm and will be accepted until July 8. At the end of the process, a summary of public comments will be posted on the website. The amended fee structure is the latest step in a comprehensive reform package for the ALC that began in November 2011. This package includes $1.6 million in transitional funding and legislative changes supporting the ALC’s focus on its core

Conservative kitchen-sink bill abuses our democracy
Dear Editor, The Conservatives rammed through the House of Commons an omnibus budget bill that is sweeping in scope, deeply flawed in content, and anti-democratic in principle. The Harper Conservatives have eliminated independent bodies like the National Roundtable on the Environment and the Economy that offer advice it may disagree with. Also, by gutting fifty years of environmental protections, the government has given itself the unilateral power to green-light major and potentially harmful resource development projects without adequate scrutiny. This bill makes changes to the Fisheries Act that could endanger many fish populations, including the migratory
salmon, a timeless presence on the Canadian landscape, not to mention a staple of the economy. Against the advice of many experts, the government will be raising the qualifying age from 65 to 67 for Old Age Security and the Guaranteed Income Supplement, beginning in 2023, thus robbing vulnerable senior citizens of up to $30 000 in much needed income. As if targeting seniors isn`t enough, the new changes in Employment Insurance will impact those who work in seasonal employment and the government did not even bother to consult employers or the provinces which will be most impacted. In addition to criticizing specific measures in this budget bill, the major problem is that it amends, creates or eliminates
70 different federal acts. By burying dozens of significant and damaging changes within a ‘kitchen sink’ bill, the government is preventing Members from doing their job by giving these changes proper consideration and scrutiny. While undermining the role of Parliament, Bill C-38 is a clear abuse of power and makes a joke of democracy. Once again, Canadians are kept in the dark and it is of the utmost importance that we raise awareness to this unprecedented situation. The Liberal Party will continue to fight against this kind of antidemocratic abuse of power. Sincerely, Marc Garneau, MP Liberal House Leader
Hydro Dams will not be short of water this year Dear Editor, Recent warnings of flood and high water levels in BC are strong testimony to this year’s rainy spring and higher than normal BC snowpack. They also mean the province’s many hydroelectric dams will not be short of water this year like they have been for most of the past decade. As crazy as it sounds, for most of the past decade, BC has actually had to import power from outside the province to meet
the province’s energy needs. And much of that imported power has not been clean hydroelectric power. Much of it has been coal-fired. We have an incredible amount of green, renewable energy in this province that we could be developing to meet our energy needs. We should not need to import power here in BC even in a low water year. Considering the fact that this year’s higher than normal water
flow is clearly the exception rather than the rule, we should not allow it to lull us into complacency. We need to get on with developing our renewable energy resources and we need to do it aggressively so that we are ready for whatever the future holds for our province. Robert van Dyck Vancouver, BC
We should look at alternative fuels to power cars Dear Editor, Record high gasoline prices are in the news again here in BC. But instead of complaining about it, and slavishly paying the price, we should really be looking to the abundant renewable energy alternatives we have available here in BC and considering electric vehicles. Electric vehicles, and the batteries that power them,
have made major leaps over the past decade. And proven production models are on the road and sitting in car dealer showrooms. Put them together with BC’s abundance of renewable energy in an aggressively significant way and, voila, high gasoline prices won’t be news in BC anymore they’ll be history. We can go on riding the never ending upward spiral of

2nd annual Dawson Creek Powwow aims to heal city, youth By Jill Earl
DAWSON CREEK - The City’s 2nd annual competition powwow is nearly a week away and organizers are busy preparing for this event that attracted approximately 150 competitive dancers from all over the province, and in the United States, as well as approximately 1,200 spectators last year. “I couldn’t believe it, it was dancers galore and they were still coming through the door and we were crowded,” said Margaret Belcourt, sponsorship director for the Powwow, on her reaction to the number of people who attended
last year. “It’s a very emotional moment, and it’s a very emotional journey because these people are coming to support you and your kids and your community and so for us, it was emotional,” said Denise Paul-Belcourt, chairperson for the Powwow committee. The Aboriginal Family Services Dawson Creek branch is hosting the Powwow with a lot of help from staff, Powwow committee members and volunteers. Organizers once again have reached out to elders Mooshum Frank Daniels and Kookum Isabelle Auger from Slave Lake

to help plan the Powwow properly using the correct traditions and protocols. “We use Kookum and Mooshum to do the initiation and the naming ceremony because it is a ceremony that is spiritual and sacred, and not anybody can do it…that would be disrespectful and it involves a connection to the Creator... Even if we knew exactly what we were doing from A to B we would still need them because they carry us, that’s the only term I can use, they carry us, they carry us through everything and help guide us,” said Paul-Belcourt. Paul-Belcourt says that not all Aboriginal seniors can be called elders; they must have served their community in order to earn the right to be called an elder. “They have earned their right, they sit there because they’ve earned the right, they do sweat lodges, they do sun dances, they are so full of knowledge and so spiritual that we don’t carry anything, they carry it all for us,” Paul-Belcourt said about Daniels and Auger. The three-day event held at the Memorial Area on Jul. 6-8 will see competitors in three women’s categories: traditional, fancy and jingle, and four men’s categories: traditional, fancy, chicken and crass. Every age group will be represented with tiny tots, 7-12, 13-18, 1935, 36-45, 46-65, and a 65-plus division. Usually dancers enter in only one dance category and dance to two songs in that category. The competition will see drum competitors too. The arena director, who runs the competition and clears the competition floor of any fallen hairpieces, selects the judges. Judges can’t be related to competitors and judge those dancers by their timing; the dancers feet should hit the floor at every drumbeat. “The biggest thing is, you’re competing against the drum, that’s your biggest competitor, the drum,” said Paul-Belcourt. The top four dancers in every category are awarded with prize money. Though Aboriginal Family Services has their own dance group of about 40 dancers it’s tradition that those dancers not compete in their own Powwow or neighbouring Powwows in order to encourage dancers from other communities to attend, though local dancers will still attend to exhibit.
“We always say the money is nice, and it is good to win, but when you’re out there you’re dancing with the drum, you’re dancing for the ones that cannot dance, you’re dancing for the ones that have gone, and you’re dancing to heal yourself, and that’s why she’s out there (Denise’s daughter) that’s why the regalia is so colourful because it’s a part of their spirit,” PaulBelcourtsaid. She added that the drug- and alcohol-free event is more than just dancing; attendees enjoy making connections with new people and visiting with old friends. One of the reasons why the staff at the Aboriginal Family Services wanted to host a Powwow in the first place was to educate Aboriginal youth about their culture and provide a way to celebrate their heritage. “I remember when the elders were talking to myself and my husband, they talked about the pain in the community of Dawson Creek and how we’re losing our children,” Paul-Belcourtsaid. “It’s not just Native children that are hurting in this community, all the children and the youth are hurting, there’s pain, there’s substance issues, poverty issues, our children have a lot more to face than we did. Part of healing the community of Dawson Creek is healing the children, that’s why the Powwow is here, it’s about healing everybody, nobody is excluded from our circle everybody is welcome into our circle,” she adds. Belcourt says dancing has the power to

Taylor Tigers host young authors book signing By Kyla Corpuz
TAYLOR – The next J.K. Rowling may have been among the 164 young authors at Taylor Elementary on Jun. 21. For the second year students from Kindergarten to Grade 6, including the preschoolers for the first time, celebrated the Young Authors Book Signing. “Every classroom, including our preschools this year, have gone and put together a small compilation of poetry or story, and it’s been published in the United States and its recently made its way up to Fort St. John,” said Jason Gill, Taylor Elementary principal. Grade 5/6 students learned different types of poetry such as haikus and limericks, and compiled them into a seven-page book. Grade 4s wrote fractured fairy tales, while Grade 3s wrote a book about why their family is special. “My family is special because they go places with me, and love me and we do things together,” said Abby, Grade 3. Preschoolers to Grade 2s put together a book as a class. “You have to Kyla Corpuz photo teach writing anyTaylor Elementary school mascot signs published book at the Second Annual Young Authors way, it doesn’t matter what grade you Book Signing on Jun. 21. teach,” said Donnasense of accomplishment and pride.” Lee Cooper, the Elementary student Jerzi said she enjoyed the book-writing process and said her favourite poem teacher who started the book project. “We actually have a to write was called In Charge of the World because she got to express “what should and shouldn’t published product to assess be.” “They begin to realize what does go into a real published book and it’s not just Robert Munsch Phone (250) 785-7907 them on, it’s just a really good spewing the words and ‘Wow he has a book!’” said Cooper. “And that the illustrations are very way to do your writing and at Toll Free 1-888-830-9909 the very end those kids feel a thoughtful and detailed and it takes a lot of time and effort to do.” 9604-112 Street, Fort St. John, BC For Grade 6 student, Norissa, she said the hardest part was drawing the cover of her book. “It was one of the last things we did, so we had to do it really quickly but make it neat at the same time.” “At Taylor Elementary we celebrate literacy,” said Gill. “We want to make sure the students have a strong hold in literacy that they can read and play into the future with that skill set, it’s a very important piece.” Having the books published builds a sense of confidence in the students, he added, which will help them in the future. “Maybe we’ll see a future Stephen King or Tom Clancy, it doesn’t matter who, but we can really see them developing themselves as authors. It gives them a chance to really explore that opportunity in the future. But once again it promotes their skills in writing and reading.” The book signing was held inside the Taylor Elementary School gym where parents, grandparents and family friends came to support the young authors. “It’s just a really great way to do something as a whole school and bringing us all together and give them a sense Complete manufacturing of all sizes of drive shafts of ‘Wow I’m a writer’,” said Cooper. “How many people Large inventory of OE driveline parts including can actually say that they’ve published a book?” Spicer, Neapco, Meritor, PTI, Eaton Cooper said bringing this JP’s Driveline stocks the most common front drive shafts for idea to Taylor is a legacy she wanted to leave with the 4x4 trucks, ready for installation Specializing in Waste Oil Collection school, as her career as a teachcovering all of North East BC er may come to a close in the Computerized High Speed balancing next eight years.

Despite forecast families find fun at lake By Jill Earl
DAWSON CREEK - Rotary Lake has been open for the public to enjoy for the past two weeks but opening celebrations were a little late. Last Saturday the Rotary Lake Preservation Society hosted the summer opening of Rotary Lake with the help of volunteers from members of the Friends of Rotary Lake group. As the society became a legal entity in April, this is the first opening celebration that they’ve hosted and hope to make it an annual event. “We just want to encourage people to use the lake because it’s there and it’s a free place for families to come and gather and enjoy a sunny day,” said Sharlene Weingart, creator of the Friends of Rotary Lake group and director on the Mile 0 Park Society board. Families came out to celebrate, enjoy the day and partake in races, a bouncy castle, watch BMX demonstrations and of course swim. The Stonewall Develop-
Story continued from Page 8. transform youth in the community, no matter their problems or circumstance. She said many dancers in their group are dealing with home and personal issues; those dancers tend to follow dancing protocol more strictly and are the best dancers. “You’ll see a young man or a young women everyday and their attitudes and how they behave, and to see them dance it seems like a different person…It’s such a transformation, it’s beautiful,” she said. Belcourt didn’t see her first powwow until she was in her 20s and says that there are a lot of older Natives that have never attended one. “I saw my first Powwow, it’s just like my blood went cold, I was just amazed ... to this day there are lots of people that don’t know what a Powwow is and this is what we’re doing, we’re bringing awareness so
ment Society was also there with a dunk tank to raise money towards a splash park. Vendors and home businesses were there selling candles, baked goods, and jewelry to name a few of their products. M&M Meat Shops set up a BBQ with proceeds going to the preservation society for their future events. The public can enjoy the lake from 11a.m. to 8p.m. daily, as well as two playgrounds, a BMX track, volleyball court, change rooms and washrooms. In order to prepare for the opening maintenance workers at the lake had to replace a holding tank, drain the lake, pressure wash it and refill it. The lake is chlorinated, and levels are checked daily. Weingart remembers when the lake wasn’t chlorinated when she was a kid and the bottom was green and slimy. For Weingart visiting the lake is still an enjoyed past time, and now brings her daughter there. “For us it was just the biggest deal or it felt like the biggest deal to have a pic-
nic lunch packed up and my dad would be out fighting forest fires so it wasn’t like we could go camping because we were at home with mom and so that was like our camping trip so we’d go down to the lake and have a picnic and our neighbourhood friends would come and it was just a fun day at the beach and it didn’t really cost much and everybody could enjoy it,” Weingart said. Controversy over the lake arose earlier this year when council was uncertain of it’s future in the park. Council later decided to hold off on any decisions until further public consultation is made. “It certainly reminds people to come out and enjoy it, I think the biggest thing that will determine if people come out to enjoy it is really the weather, and last year was kind of a rainy summer and hopefully this summer is more enjoyable, but I’ve been in the water already and it’s pretty warm,” Weingart said.
that the people can get all this pride within themselves, they’ve lost their identity, they go out and don’t even have a home base or whatever...and that’s what a powwow does, it brings pride to people,” she said. Paul-Belcourt hopes that having an annual Powwow will restore some of the Native culture the community has lost over the years. “We grew up in a time where it was about assimilation and about change, like the residential school effects ... where we’ve lost our language. For my daughter this is going to be normal and
that’s what we want for the community of Dawson Creek, where it’s not such a surprise to have a powwow in your community, it’s normal, and you want to give that sense of normalcy to the kids,” she said. The organizing committee has worked since September o fundraise for the event and is still looking for sponsors. The committee has chosen not to charge admission, they wanted to keep the event free so everyone has the opportunity to enjoy. Paul-Belcourt quotes Kookum Auger when she says, “It’s not right to charge for our culture.”

Golden age gets golden ticket By Jill Earl
DAWSON CREEK - Last Wednesday seniors were invited to board the city bus as part of Ticket to Ride, a Community Action for Seniors Independence initiative. This is the second Ticket to Ride the CASI Dawson Creek branch has hosted, aimed at getting seniors more comfortable with riding the bus. “What’s keeping people from getting involved in their community? If it’s a matter of transportation then how can we help them? People become more independent with transportation and we’re hoping that exposing people to the bus system, how it works and also helping them see what sort of things they can

access from the bus route might give them that little bit of impetus to get out there and go at it,” said Linda Studley, CASI’s program coordinator. After picking up 24 seniors at their homes the city bus travelled to the Dawson Creek Art Gallery, the EnCana multiplex for the use of their walking track and Faking Sanity to end the trip with tea, snacks and a little socializing. “I think that kind of gives us a nice balance, we’re visiting a facility where there’s arts and culture and we’re visiting a facility where there’s an opportunity for exercise and fitness and then the final one is more of a social aspect and it’s kind of nice to finish off an outing with a cup of tea and a piece of cake,” Studley said.

which is a beauty school, esthetician, hair and makeup school in Vancouver, so I moved to Vancouver right after high school.
Story continued on Page 29.
When did you hear you were going to be one of the contestants? I applied around Christmas time and I found out just after Christmas that I was accepted to be one of the contestants. It was exciting, it’s such a great opportunity, to not only meet so many great, wonderful people but also be a role model and inspiration to other people as well. If you do take home the title, what do you hope to do with it? The title is just a title. You can still do what you want to do if you win or lose, if you have a title or not you can still do the same thing. But being in the public eye you can inspire so many more people.
Q&A with 2012 Miss BC contestant FORT ST. JOHN - The Northeast News spoke with 2012 Miss BC contestant Michelle Svisdahl, 23, who was born and raised in Fort St. John. The 23-year-old moved to Vancouver after high school to pursue a career in the makeup industry and has just launched her own line, Miss Apples Cosmetics. During a telephone interview, we got the scoop on what she hopes to gain from the Miss BC pageant, what makes her cosmetic line special and why she’ll always be a northern girl.

So I hear you recently started your own makeup line? Yeah! I actually just started selling in the last month, so it’s been an exciting adventure for me, definitely. It’s been something that I’ve been working on for the last year and a half. So to have it finally out there it’s amazing. It’s such an overwhelming experience. Why did you choose to go into cosmetics and what inspired you to start your own line? I went to makeup school right after high school, I graduated in Fort St. John.

BC HYdrO PUBliC NOTiCE NEW BUOY AT WillisTON rEsErvOir
Tots graduate from Play Arts By Kyla Corpuz
FORT ST. JOHN - Play Arts Preschool wrapped up its first year with a showcase of what the children learned and a walk across the stage donning colourful graduation caps. “It was extremely successful, I think more than we could have hopped for,” said Susan McGarvey. Play Arts, a new preschool that started last September, received a “positive and excit-
ing” response from parents. “Next year we are actually going to have two classes, a morning and afternoon, and we’ll be accepting 18 in each … people are still trying to get in for next year,” said McGarvey. Play Arts is a normal preschool that adds in the aspect of arts to early childhood learning. From sign language, to yoga, music, rhythm, dance, cooking, drama and a little bit of Spanish—McGarvey said
these extra tools are helpful in evolving little brains. “What it is that studies are showing is that the arts is a great way for kids’ brains to grow,” she said. “We know that sports is really good for the body, it helps our muscles grow. They’re finding that arts is just as important for the mind...” Certified Early Childhood Education instructors and high-profile musicians teach Play Arts Preschool.
Anyone with navigational concerns regarding this buoy or location can contact Transport Canada’s Navigable Waters Protection Program at 604 775 8868. For further general information about the buoy, please contact us at 250 561 4858, or email email@example.com.

Ronald McDonald House Golf Tournament Thank You! We raised $35,000 on May 25th at Lone Wolf in Taylor. A Huge Thanks needs to go to Flint Energy Services for sponsoring Lanny McDonald to come and golf and he brought several items that he autographed and we auctioned them off. The VE Brandl team bid $2500 to have Lanny golf with them and the money raised by Lanny and Flint was just under $6,000! McDonald’s Restaurant donated $6,000 of the $12,000 raised from their McHappy Day event – the other half went to the local CDC.

Slykhuis said. Slykhuis said that he predicted these cuts last year and put away more money in reserve funding to help with the loss. The money that was put away will help to fund special initiative projects for next school year and to maintain a total balanced budget of $49,170,381. “This was planned, so we have some projects like the Central School roof where we’re using reserve money to pay for it … there are a couple others, energy projects, the board actually put aside last year $490,000 for those and they put aside $300,000 for some roofing projects, so it’s actually money that we’ve set aside in reserves to do these projects,” Slykhuis said. Other projects that all schools in the area will see include: an electrical upgrade, major roofing repairs, plumbing upgrades, site drainage, ventilation upgrade, window upgrade and exterior painting.

Beef, sheep & Swine Sale at 5 p.m. on Saturday. â€˘ British Home Child Memory Quilt Exhibit - Between 1869 and 1948, 100 000 British Home Children were sent to Canada by church groups, orphanages, and workhouses to work on farms or as domestic help. These groups thought that poor and abandoned children would have a better life in Canada than on the street and in the workhouses of Britain. Many thrived in Canada but others suffered abuse, poor working conditions, and loneliness. 2010 was designated as the Year of the British Home Child. Three quilts were made in Canada with squares submitted by descendents of these British Home Children. This quilt comes to us from Alberta and was lovingly put together by Hazel Perrier, a descendent of British Home Children. It depicts the experiences of these children across the country. On display until the end of August at the Fort St. John North Peace Museum, 9323 â€“ 100th Street. Open Monday to Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information call 250-787-0430.

I decided I wanted to do my own thing, and let my creativity show a little bit instead of what other people were telling me to do. I wanted to have my own ideas, be creative with it. With makeup it’s such an empowering thing because it will make women feel confident. I don’t think women necessarily have to wear makeup, but if it’s something that they do to feel confident as themselves, as women, I think it’s so empowering to be able to create that. There are lots of makeup lines out there, what makes yours stand out? What makes it different? With my makeup line at this point, it’s more real. You know, other makeup lines, sure there are a lot of great makeup lines out there with great makeup artists working under their title, but it’s never the person that you are dealing with personally, whereas I’m constantly involved in asking people’s opinions. I think it’s very important for people to be in touch with the person who designed that product. What product stands out the most? Right now I have two products out at the moment. There will be new ones at the end of the month, but right now I have the Super Lash Mascara—which is amazing because it will make your lashes grow as well. I have had amazing feedback, and people send me so many pictures of how their eyelashes are growing, so it’s really inspiring to see people so excited about it.

Congratulations on your new line and being a contestant on Miss BC. So the actual competition is on July 2, what have you been doing to prepare for it? We’re actually working with the charity Cops for Cancer. Submitted photo So every contestant has a charMichelle Svisdahl, 2012 ity that they raise money for. Miss BC contestant, from I’ve held two fundraisers with Fort St. John another contestant, so we’ve been doing a lot of fundraising with it. We also have to prepare a speech for a workshop we’re doing because we have a full week of workshops before the pageant. I’m actually just on my way to pick up my dress in a few minutes here. It’s just been a great experience, I’ve already met a few of the other contestants, and they’re wonderful girls, and I’m just excited to meet the other girls as well. It’s been a lot of work, a lot more than I thought it would be, it’s definitely worth it. Being from Fort St. John, a northern girl, will you be representing the Northeast region? They do put you under regional titles, so I don’t know if they put me on northern or if they put me under Lower Mainland. But either way, I still do want to represent Fort St. John, it is my hometown, I don’t live there now, but the support I’ve gotten from people is absolutely remarkable. I feel so blessed to have those people in my life. It’s so exciting to see such a community come together. Living in Vancouver there’s so many people, you meet tons of people but it’s not a community like Fort St. John is. So I definitely feel the support I’m getting from the people in Fort St. John. If you would like to vote for Michelle, visit the Contestants page on www.missbc.ca. Voting ends on Jul. 1.
