Maclean’s ranks UNBC No. 2

Maclean’s Magazine released the results of its annual ranking Thursday and UNBC tied its highest ranking ever, placing second among 19 small, “primarily undergraduate” Canadian universities. Mt. Allison, more than 150 years older than UNBC, placed first. This is the eighth straight year UNBC has been ranked the best university in its category west of Atlantic Canada. “We have terrific faculty, fantastic students, great relationships with communities throughout the North, and a wonderful

environment for teaching and research. It’s no wonder UNBC continues to perform well in Maclean’s,” said UNBC President George Iwama in a press release. “All those associated with UNBC should take pride in their university.” In its selection of UNBC, Maclean’s cited UNBC’s favorable student-teacher ratio and research funding. “The University of Northern British Columbia’s second-place finish is an even bigger story. UNBC, an 18-year-old school, debuted

at ninth place 14 years ago. This year it has the highest total research dollars, and the second best student-faculty ratio, impressive for such a young school.” Maclean’s considers 13 indicators of the quality of students, faculty, libraries and finances to assess 49 universities. Each is placed in one of three categories— Medical/Doctoral, Comprehensive, or Primarily Undergraduate—to recognize differences in size, programming, and research activity.

Imagine grants available again

For the fourth year in a row, Northern Health is looking for community partners who have great ideas for a health promotion project that will help improve the health and well-being of those living, working, learning and playing in northern B.C. We want to encourage people to visit the IMAGINE grants website for more information and to apply for grants.

This year, Northern Health is shifting the alignment of the grants to showcase their community health philosophy that health happens in the community and prevention is everyone’s responsibility. We have developed position statements focusing on key modifiable risk factors to support grassroots to government solutions to improving health and wellness by supporting action and partnerships at

the community level. You can learn more about this work our Position Statements Addressing Risk Factors website. IMAGINE grants will provide approximately $365,000 in total this year to community groups and organizations who are successful in illustrating their vision of a health promotion project. Interested groups are encouraged to apply for grants in several categories.

Spirit of the North elects board

The Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation held its 21st annual general meeting on Oct 30. Re-elected to the Board was Darren Masse (BMO Nesbitt Burns), Shane Lapierre (Prince George Fire Fighters), Trevor Lutes (Scotiabank) and Tom Sentes (Wood Wheaton). Newly elected to a two-year term were Don Gowan (Finning Canada), Albert Koehler (city councillor), Colleen Sparrow (Prince George Citizen) and David Yarmish (David J. Yarmish & Associates). Continuing on the Board as the regional representative is Paul Stewart (Gulbranson Logging, Vanderhoof) and Rhonda Loose (Auxiliary to UHNBC). These new Directors join Judy Jackson, Colin Kinsley, Diane Rog-

ers and Trevor Slaney on the Board. Also continuing on the board is Finlay Sinclair, Director of Business Development representing Northern Health. Dr. Michelle Sutter after a decade of service to the board representing the medical community completed her term. Dr. Linda Wilson will be joining the Board. Ron Epp, managing partner of KPMG presented the audited financial statements for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2012. Last year, the Foundation had gross revenues of $2,487,527 and issued grants totaling $1,912,401 to UHNBC and numerous other Northern Health facilities throughout northern B.C. President Darren Masse introduced Jessica Aldred as the new Chief Executive Officer

who recently moved to the North after 13 years working in fundraising for a number of organizations. Masse, in his president’s address spoke to the fact that the foundation remains committed to its responsibility as “good stewards of the funds you, our donors have given to us… We need you to know that, we appreciate the trust you have placed in us to make sure your donation to health care is being used most efficiently and for the best impact on health care in the North. “As we improve the quality of our external partnerships, we must strive to understand what is needed in the north and how we can create maximum impact on health care through philanthropy.”

Job numbers drop in October

It was a different Pat Bell on Friday. After almost being giddy when discussing monthly job numbers the past few months, Friday’s news that the province lost 10,900 jobs in October Bell was a little more somber. B.C.’s labour force decreased by 18,600 people in October and now stands at 2,484,800. Compared with 14 months ago, B.C.’s labour force has increased by 31,100 people.

B.C.’s unemployment rate of 6.7 per cent is down from September’s rate of 7.0 per cent and is 0.1 of a percentage point higher than October 2011’s rate of 6.6 per cent. B.C. has Canada’s fourth-lowest unemployment rate. Alberta (4.5 per cent), Saskatchewan (4.7 per cent) and Manitoba (5.6 per cent) have lower unemployment rates. The unemployment rate for youth (15 to 24 years of age) was recorded at 13.4 per cent, down by 0.6 percentage points from Sep-

tember. In October 2011, the youth unemployment rate was recorded at 12.7 per cent. Last month strong gains were recorded in finance, insurance, real estate and leasing (+10,300 jobs), other services (+8,000 jobs), information, culture and recreation (+5,000 jobs) and construction (+3,200 jobs). Even with the loss of 10,900 jobs in October, the province remains on track to meet its BC Jobs Plan targets, said the always optimistic Bell.

Lieutenant Governor retires

By Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – Wearing a kilt representing the clan of a Scottish ancestor, Lieutenant Governor Steven Point ended his five-year term Thursday with a unique ceremony at the B.C. legislature. In the ornate rotunda now decorated by his hand-carved dugout canoe, B.C.’s first aboriginal Queen’s representative joined a choir and band to perform an original song he dedicated to the people of B.C. Premier Christy Clark presented Point and his wife Gwendolyn with gifts, and Point was visibly moved when presented with a hand-crafted guitar made in Kamloops. Clark praised the couple for their work during the past five years, including a partnership with Rotary Clubs on literacy in remote B.C. communities. Clark recounted Point’s career, starting as a chief of his own First Nation, moved on to Grand Chief of the Sto:lo Tribal Council, earning two law degrees, becoming a provincial court judge, and serving as chief commissioner of the B.C. Treaty Commission before accepting Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s invitation to serve as Lieutenant Governor.

Premier Christy Clark presents Lieutenant Governor Steven Point with a handmade guitar as he ended his five-year term at a ceremony at the B.C. legislature Thursday.

“He set out to be a role model for First Nations people, to inspire young people, and he has reached that goal,” Clark said. Point praised Clark and said the country needs more women leaders, and also showed his penchant for humour.

“Well, it’s all over,” Point said. “I feel like Dorothy at the end of the Wizard of Oz. I’m going to go home now.” Chilcotin rancher Judith Guichon is to be sworn in Friday as B.C.’s 29th Lieutenant Governor.

Cinema CNC presents...

Four for Fall


NOV 17 : mOOnRiSE KinGDOm

Dir: Benh Zeitlin USA� 91 mins. WITH: Quvenzhane � Wallis, Dwight Henry�

DIR: Wes Anderson USA, 94 mins WITH: Bill murray, Edward norton, frances mcDormand, Tilda Swinton and Bruce Willis

This stunning debut from first-time film- maker Benh Zeitlin alludes to a number of artistic masterpieces, paying homage to great works of literature, painting, and cinema. At home in The Bathtub, a marshland cut off from the Louisiana coast, an unapologetically uncivilized band of humans live alongside the animals that sustain them, blissfully disconnected from their resource-burning neighbours to the north. Among them, six-year-old Hushpuppy already fends well for herself, sharing a trailer with her father, Wink, who hasn't been the same since Hushpuppy's mother left them years earlier. Beasts of the Southern Wild is equal parts mythological, anthropological, folkloric, and apocalyptic. An emotionally wrenching and heartfelt portrayal of the bond between a father and his daughter, it is not to be missed.

NOV 24 : the queen of versailles DIR: Lauren Greenfield USA, 100 mins documentary. WITH: David and Jackie Siegel

This real-life riches-to-rags story follows billionaire David Siegel and his wife Jackie as they embark on the construction of their dream home: a sprawling, 90,0000-square-foot mansion inspired by the palace of Versailles, designed to be the largest private residence in the USA. But when the economic crisis hits and the real-estate bubble bursts, progress grinds to a halt and seals the Siegels' fate. Chronicling the decline in the Siegels' fortunes over the course of two years, Greenfield's riveting documentary explores both the virtues and tragic flaws of the American Dream. "A gaudy guilty pleasure that is also a piece of trenchant social criticism; a sprawling, richly detailed study of ambition, desire and the wild swings of fortune that are included in the price of the capitalist ticket.” –A.O. Scott New York Times.

This is the eagerly-anticipated new film from director Wes Anderson, and features his unique brand of quirky humour, an iconic soundtrack and distinctive visual style. On the fictional New England island of New Penzance in 1965, lovestruck twelve-year-olds Sam and Suzy have decided to run away together. Both are isolated children and their romance is ridiculous yet touching — a pre-teen fantasy of grown-up love. Their escape triggers a humourously hapless search party; the dramatic absurdity of the situation is heightened by the violent storm on course for New Penzance. Youʼll find yourself nostalgic for this magical, largely fictional time. Moonrise Kingdom is sure to be a joyful experience for Anderson fans, and a treat for the uninitiated.

dec 1: BOy Dir: Taika Waititi nEW ZEAlAnD, 87 mins maori with subtitles with: James Rolleston, Te Aho Aho Eke� tone-Whitu and Taika Waititi

Itʼs 1984. Michael Jacksonʼs Thriller rules the airwaves and 11-yearold Boy dreams of the day when his absentee father will return to whisk him and his younger brother, Rocky, away from their home in New Zealandʼs Bay of Plenty to see his one-gloved idol in concert. One-time comedian Waititiʼs refreshing direction and funny script imbues the story with magic, from its hand-drawn flip-book animations and Michael Jackson dance fantasies, to its bleeding sunsets, sweeping coastline vistas, and unforgettably colourful characters. As Boy, Rolleston — initially an extra who replaced the original actor at the last minute — turns in a remarkably unaffected, seemingly effortless performance.
