UNBC takes on another big job A2

■ Community garden

Volunteer receives city recognition Teresa Mallam arts@pgfreepress.com

Green thumbs are just part of the picture. The vision and inspiration for a community garden on the corner of 10th Avenue and Vancouver Street came years ago from senior citizen Laura Sandberg. She saw a need to help beautify the neighbourhood. So with donations from local businesses, youth groups and individuals, Laura began transforming the vacant lot into a beautiful garden area for flowers and vegetables. She was later joined in her efforts. “I offered to come and weed the garden and, as the story goes ... one thing led to another,” said James Haggerstone. “We ran a garden hose from the neighbour’s house. Soon we were watering and weeding on a regular basis and we trimmed the low-hanging branches from the trees.” The enthusiasm spread. “The neighbours started to notice and two young guys came by in a pickup truck and hauled away the debris. Someone came in with a weed eater. Plants started to magically appear and it seemed everyone liked the idea of reclaiming that little garden on the corner.” And the garden is not just another “pretty face” in the neighbourhood. It provides fresh vegetables as well. “Laura, the master gardener, works in the garden every day and she always has cakes and cookies to share with me while we wait for the vegetables to grow,” said Haggerstone. “We had our first taste of the radishes last weekend. The peas and beets are another month away.” On Sunday, Haggerstone was awarded the city’s Good Neighbour Certificate of Appreciation for his work and volunteer

Ginny Jenkins presents James Haggerstone with an Enhance BC Good Neighbour Certificate of Appreciation on Sunday for his work turning a vacant lot on the corner of 10th and Vancouver into a beautiful garden area with flowers and vegetables. hours spent on the garden. He is regional manager of health information analysis at Northern Health. When he’s not at work, he can be found digging in community gardens or working on his MBA through the UNBC school of business. EnhancePG, with the support of mayor and council, is providing residents of the city an oppor-

tunity to recognize individuals and groups whose actions have made a positive difference in the community. From small gestures to large actions, modelling community spirit, improving the safety of a neighbourhood or enhancing its beauty are examples of actions worthy of recognition. “It could be something as

simple as helping a neighbour whose garden needs watering while they’re away,” explained committee member Betty Burbee. Good Neighbour Certificates of Appreciation will be signed by the Mayor of Prince George and the Chair of Enhance PG. If you want to recommend someone for the award, fill out

a short form indicating why you think that person in your neighbourhood is worthy of a Certificate of Apprecation and return the form to City Hall’s Service Centre. The form can be found at www.princegeorge.ca. Forms are also available at City Hall Service Centre or by calling the Community Services Department at 250-561-7640.

Key role for UNBC in new program

UNBC is taking a lead role in a new national network looking at the issues faced by aboriginal people living in cities. The University of Northern British Columbia is partnering with the National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC), government ministries, and regional research centres across Canada to develop the Urban Aboriginal Knowledge Network (UAKN) and research the policies and issues that affect Canada’s city-dwelling aboriginal population. The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) recently approved $2.5 million in funding over five years to go towards the project led nationally by Trent University and by UNBC in western Canada. “Although more than half of Canada’s Aboriginals live in urban centres, the realities of urban Aboriginal people remain much less understood by researchers, government officials, and many service agencies than those of onreserve First Nations people and Inuit in the North,” says UNBC professor of First Nations Studies Ross Hoffman, who, along with UNBC Economics professor Paul Bowles, will be coordinating UNBC’s research activities in the project. “This is the first time universities, government ministries, and friendship centres have ever been brought together at the national level to address issues of aboriginal policy.” The network’s research activities

will be focused around four broad themes: • human development (needs and outcomes of individuals and families) • social cohesion (community well-being, education, and justice) • economic development (economic participation, employment, entrepreneurship, income) • civic engagement “Research is at its most valuable when it’s used to improve peoples’ lives. Many Aboriginal people feel like they’ve been surveyed and researched to death, but to little affect,” says Barb Ward-Burkitt, executive director of the Prince George Native Friendship Centre. Prince George has the second highest urban aboriginal population in B.C. outside of Vancouver. “I believe UNBC was approached to be a leader in this area because it tries to match its research activities with the needs of the region and this is another example of that.” A key component of the network’s strategy is to provide opportunities for emerging scholars – Aboriginal scholars in particular – to engage in research about urban Aboriginal issues. The knowledge created will be available for use in courses on Aboriginal issues at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. The network’s research will also provide new knowledge to communitybased and government partners, in an effort to improve policy, programs, and services for urban Aboriginal peoples.


Early-Morning Fire

Few details were available at press time regarding an early-morning fire on McCullagh Avenue in Prince George on Tuesday morning. All of the occupants of the duplex apparently escaped, although one was treated for smoke inhalation. Al la n W I S H A RT / F re e P re s s

Prince George man arrested in Fort St. John after fight Two men are in hospital and two others, including one from Prince George, are in custody after an early-morning fight took place on the corner of 100th Avenue and 100th Street in Fort St. John. On July 22, at 2:43 a.m., the Fort St. John RCMP responded to a report of a group of men fight-

ing on 100th Street near 100th Avenue. When police arrived they found one man unconscious and one man with a facial injury. Police determined that a verbal argument had occurred between a group of four men and the two victims. A fight broke out between indi-

viduals in each group and the victims were injured. One of the men in the larger group gave first aid to the injured men, the others in the group left before police arrived. Officers were able to identify other people involved in the altercation and two of them were subsequently arrested. It is believed

that alcohol was a contributing factor. Both of the injured were transported to Fort St. John hospital by ambulance and later transferred to an Edmonton hospital. William Ted Metcalfe, 25, of Kelowna, and Joel Christopher Marchand, 29, of Prince George have been charged with one

count each of assault causing bodily harm and one count each of aggravated assault. Both accused are still in custody pending further investigation. If you witnessed this fight or have further details please call the Fort St. John RCMP or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or via the web at www.crimestoppersfsj.ca.

Geting to the core issues

The time has come for people in Prince George to state where they see the City of Prince George being able to improve the services it provides. The Core Services Review the city has undertaken is reaching the end of another public-input phase, with this week being an important one for people who want a say in what the city is doing right and wrong in the services it provides. The city has provided a number of ways for people to get involved. One is an online survey, available at www.princegeorge.ca, and then look for Core Review Survey in the Frequently Visited Pages box to the left. The city has organized its services into seven separate areas, and there is a separate survey for each. The seven areas are planning; development; emergency and enforcement; internal support services; public works; parks, recreation and culture; and governance and leadership. Each area has a service profile which descrbes what services are provided in that area, what the service level is, and performance, rationale and budget for each service in that area. You can make your opinions known in any or all of the program area surveys, or you can provide comments in the summary survey. The surveys will be available online until Aug. 3. As well, Wednesday, July 25, provides an opportunity to get questions answered and make your opinions known during a public workshop. The workshop is set for 6 p.m. at the Civic Centre, and you have to register to attend. You can do so by calling 250-5617602 or e-mailing csrworkshop@city.pg.bc.ca. If you need more information on council’s strategic priorities as you go through the program areas, that information is available on the same website as the surveys. Council is doing a great job of making sure the public has every opportunity to have a say in how the core services it provides should be administered. There are a couple of things to remember, however. First, there is clearly no way they can incorporate every suggection made during this ongoing process into the city’s strategic plans. Second, the final decisions on what the core services will look like when the review is completed still rest with council. They have indicated they want to hear from the citizens. It is up to the citizens to take advanatge of this opportunity – and then it up to council to show it listened to the concerns of all the people, not just a select few. Think of this process as being like an election. The old saying is, “If you don’t vote, don’t complain about who gets in.” In this case, if you don’t make your feelings known about what the core services the city provides should look like in the future, don’t complain when things don’t unfold the way you want them to.

Minor football camp kicks off season AListair McInnis

sports@pgfreepress.com

The fall football season is just around the corner. An annual tradition introducing players to the game while starting another campaign returned to the École Lac De Bois fields on Saturday. The Prince George Minor Football Association’s free kick-off skills camp gave participants the opportunity to learn about the basics of the game. The three-hour camp ran from 9 a.m. until noon. “It’s good to get the kids out and you can tell right away that they’re enthused and excited to get going,” PGMFA equipment manager and atom division coach Grant Erickson said shortly after sessions wrapped up Saturday. “We have a lot of volunteers and a lot of help, and you can do hot dogs and pop and that sort of thing. It just puts a smile on everybody’s face.” When they promote the game, PGMFA organizers stress the league’s affordability. The Play with the Pros and kick-off camps don’t cost a cent, while all new players entering the atoms division for 2002 to 2005 born players can register for free. To play, a child must be six years of age on or before July 31. Other PGMFA registration fees are $195 for both peewee (2001 and 2000 born) and junior bantam (1999 and 1998 born). Saturday’s free camp was open to the same age groups, marking an opportunity for the league to register players on site. The age divisions have changed since the Northern Interior High School Football League moved to the fall about six years ago. Last year, the league introduced a junior varsity division for Grade 8 and 9 players. Before the high school league existed, the PGMFA also offered bantam and midget divisions for the older age groups. Erickson notes that having a narrower age bracket makes coaching easier.

After completing an obstacle course, one player hands the ball off to the next one in line during Saturday’s Prince George Minor Football Association fun skills camp at the École Lac Des Bois fields. “You don’t expect them to come out of this (free camp) with too much,” he said. “But it basically just gets them back into the habit of listening to the coach, going through the drill and that sort of thing.” The camp also acts as a lead-in to fall tackle practice sessions, which begin on Tuesday. The sessions run begin Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the

École Lac Des Bois field. League games for the 2012 PGMFA fall tackle season will unfold on Saturdays starting at the end of August. The league asks for players to chip in with a volunteer bond of $75, which gets refunded at the end of the season in exchange for five hours of volunteer time. Quesnel and Vanderhoof are except in lieu

of travel expenses. Football equipment is provided free of charge by the PGMFA. Players can register for the upcoming season in person at one of the practices. You can contact PGMFA registrar Melanie Forsythe at 250-649-6765 for more information. Updates are also provided on the PGMFA website at www.pgmfa.com.

Four shortlisted for liquor privatization deal The government of British Columbia has created a shortlist of proponents to enter the next stage of evaluation for the proposed privatization of the Liquor Distribution Branch’s warehousing and distribution services. Government has undertaken a transparent process based on standard government procurement practices to consider six proposals in response to the Negotiated Request for Proposals (NRFP) to contract for the LDB’s warehousing and distribution services. Based on the six submissions received, the NRFP evaluation committee shortlisted four of the most qualified proponents. They are (in alphabetical order): • ContainerWorld Forwarding Services Inc. • Exel Canada Ltd. • Kuehne + Nagel Ltd. • Metro Supply Chain Group Inc. The NRFP contained a provision for up to the three top-ranked proposals. There was a tie for the third spot, so four proponents will now continue through the process. The shortlisted proponents will now have an opportunity to refine their proposals

based on discussions with the NRFP evaluation committee. The NRFP evaluation committee will determine which of these refined proposals best meets government’s objectives, and in the event it is established a better service delivery model can be achieved, will announce the success-

ful company in October 2012. A services agreement would then be negotiated with the successful company by March 2013. To ensure a fair and transparent process, a fairness monitor is overseeing and working with the NRFP evaluation committee to ensure the process is conducted in a manner

that is fair to all parties. At the end of the process, the fairness monitor will prepare a summary report, which will be made publicly available. On July 18, the fairness monitor sent a letter to government indicating he is “of the view that the NRFP procurement to this date has been conducted

by the private sector. Any new system would have to demonstrate itself to be more effective and efficient, and provide lower overall costs to government. Liquor pricing is not a part of the NRFP. Pricing and collection of revenue for liquor in B.C. remains in the hands of government - not the distributor.

fairly and in a manner that has adhered to the terms of the NRFP.” The whole letter can be read at: www. gov.bc.ca/citz/reports_ publications.html The B.C. government is currently exploring what might be possible and will only move forward if a better service delivery model can be provided
