Leaders react to Fraser Institute rankings By Alan S. Hale The Northern View

www.citywest.ca

The Fraser Institute released its school performance report card for 2010 on Monday, and Prince Rupert’s public schools did not score well. Westview was the highest ranked Prince Rupert elementary placing 695th out of 875 schools with 4.5/10, followed by Lax Kxeen in 710th with 4.4/10, Pineridge in 768th with a score of 3.9, Conrad in 857th with 2.3 and Roosevelt in 874th of 875 schools with a score of 0.0/10. The city’s lone private school bucked the trend by scoring a 9.1/10 to sit in 49th. In British Columbia the results are based on the scores students get on the Foundational Skills Assessment (FSA), a provincial test that students take to measure their reading, writing and math skills. The FSA itself is controversial and is despised by many educators across the province. The

BC Teacher’s Federation has been trying to have it removed from the curriculum. Even the B.C. Principals and Vice-Principals Association came out in January to voice opposition to the FSA. According to the superintendent of the Prince Rupert School District, Lynn Hauptman, the problem is that the FSAs are meant to assess students’ skills mid-year so teachers can know what needs to be worked on before the year is out, but then the Fraser Institute takes that one-day snapshot of and ranks schools entirely on that basis. After years of bad scores from Prince Rupert schools, Hauptman outright refuses to comment on them. “I will not comment on what the Fraser Institute does with the [FSA] results. I abhor what the Fraser Institute does. It’s not what the data was intended for, it is a disgrace that it was used in that way,” says Hauptman. MLA Gary Coons – who is a former teacher himself – supports attempts by

education workers to get rid of the FSA. He says that the standardized test is inherently flawed to begin with, and that the Fraser Institute is using it for a right-wing campaign to undermine the public school system to push for greater privatization of education. The Fraser Institute, which has said it favours a larger role for private schools, did not respond to repeated requests for an interview before this story had to go to press, but they did fire back at criticism over using the FSA results in their press release. “The teachers’ union wants to deny parents, educators, and taxpayers this information. It doesn’t want to acknowledge the fact that improvement is possible and that it can only be identified by comparing school performance based on student assessments,” says Peter Cowley, the Fraser Institute’ director of school performance.

X ONGOING DISPUTE

Court turns down Suncor request for refusal extension By Shaun Thomas The Northern View The ongoing court case between Suncor Energy and Ridley Terminals, outlined in Friday’s Northern Connector, took another turn on February 2 with the court ruling against a request from Suncor. Documents filed by Suncor on February 1 requested that the current court order prohibiting Ridley Terminals from refusing shipments from Suncor that meet the criteria of the service agreement until February 8, 2011 be extended “until the disposition of this matter by arbitration or until such time as this Honourable Court deems just”. The next day the court denied the request and the denial of the request means Ridley Terminals could legally start refusing shipments from Suncor that don’t have an anti-freeze agent

beginning on Tuesday. However, Suncor says getting an antifreeze agent in place is a work in progress. “Suncor has made all reasonable efforts to identify and apply a suitable freeze-prevention agent to its petroleum coke and believes it is close to being able to apply such an agent to its product before it is shipped to RTI. Suncor still has to obtain RTI’s acceptance of any agent Suncor intends to apply to its petroleum coke,” reads the document, a stance that is echoed by Suncor spokesperson Kyle Happy. “Suncor’s primary focus is on finding a solution that will satisfy Ridley Terminals’ operational concerns under our current agreement. Alternatives are limited, but we continue to investigate other options should they be required,” said Happy. Suncor says it takes seven days for shipments to get from its

The Port of Prince Rupert is facing a potential work stoppage in near future, one that includes the possibility of seeing the Asia-Pacific Gateway grind to a halt. Last week, International Longshore and Warehouse Union held a province-wide strike vote. By Thursday afternoon, a full-on media war had begun between the union and the BC Maritime Employers Association (BCMEA). The union’s negotiating team has not yet decided to release the results of the strike vote. But, the union said on Thursday through a press release that they have no intention of issuing a strike notice before negotiations resume, which are scheduled for February 12. The two sides are currently in a cooling off period that ended on February 7. The B.C. Maritime Employers Association has suggested in media reports that if the union were to issue the mandatory two-day notice, a strike could begin as early as the next day. On Thursday the union sent out a press release that accuses the BCMEA of fear mongering. “It is the height of irresponsibility for the BCMEA to make these comments which will only create uncertainty, a circumstance the BCMEA

claims to be trying to avoid,” says union president, Tom Dufresne via the press release. On the flip side, the Prince Rupert chapter of the union has said that its more likely that BCMEA will lock the workers out. They claim that the BCMEA filed the federal paperwork that enabled them to start a lockout around a month ago. “They’ve actually moved forward on this, not us...The last time long shoremen went on strike was 25 years ago, but we’ve been locked out numerous times since then. Yet everybody thinks we went on strike; it’s always locked out,” says Tom MacDonald, the secretary treasurer of the local 505. A strike or a lockout would effectively shut down Fairview Terminal. Only the grain elevator and the coal terminal on Ridley Island would remain operational. This is because the grain elevator has government rules that disallow picketing it, and the coal terminal is governed by a different agreement. The BCMEA has been suggesting that any strike would be industry-wide and would cripple the country’s export business in what are already tough economic times. The union has shot back saying that an industry-wide strike is optional and that the BCMEA’s statements are “disingenuous and misleading.” Repeated calls to the BCMEA for comment were unreturned.

Close your eyes for a moment and pay attention to all the different sounds around you. This is how our buddy Garth lives. Garth is partially blind. He uses touch and sound to locate his toys, food, and litter box. And yes, he knows how to use them all quite well! Garth was brought in as a stray and it wasn’t until a few days after when staff at the BCSPCA noticed he may have limited vision. He was immediately given a few simple vision tests and it is safe to say that Garth requires the use of sound, scent, and touch over his eye sight. A blind, or partially blind animal will require a little bit extra care, but Garth is looking for his forever home just the same. Please come and fill out an adoption application for our pal today!

X FOUR LIVES CLAIMED

RCMP seek new tips in 21 year old fire By Rod Link Black Press Police in Prince Rupert are looking for the public’s help to solve a 21-year-old homicide that killed four people. Investigators are once again asking for the public’s assistance in solving the deaths that took place in the early morning of February 5, 1990 that wiped out three generations of one family. A fire tore through the Brooks Bank Building on 153 3rd Avenue, West at 5:15 a.m. that morning, killing 45 year old Helga Rochon, her two daughters Sherri, 26, and Pauline, 19, and Pauline’s 7-month-old daughter Kimberly Dumais. When fire crews arrived, the building was fully involved and efforts focused on putting out the blaze while minimizing the spread of the flames. It took crews hours to put out the blaze and when investigators examined the damage, the bodies of the four victims were discovered on the third floor where Helga lived. The building contained businesses on the main floor and apartments on the second and third floors. Staff Sgt. Garry Kerr, the original lead investigator at the time of the incident, still remembers the moment they discovered the victims. “I still think about the moment,” he said. “The scene was horrific. I can still see them huddled together in the living room area, the small child still in her mother’s arms. I can’t imagine the horror they went through.” The investigation soon determined that the fire had been deliberately set and that the cause of the fire was arson. Three months earlier, on October 31, 1989, the Prince Rupert Fire Department attended

A fire tore through the Brooks Bank Building on 153 3rd Avenue, West at 5:15 a.m. February 5, 1990, killing 45 year old Helga Rochon, her two daughters Sherri, 26, and Pauline, 19, and Pauline’s 7-month-old daughter Kimberly Dumais. an apartment fire in the same Brooks Bank Building at approximately 2:45 a.m. That incident was also determined to be arson. Despite neighbourhood canvasses, numerous interviews and following up on a number of leads, no one was charged for the crime. The investigation was reviewed by the North District Major Crime Unit and taken on by the Provincial Historical Homicide unit in 2009. Police have not ruled out that the victims were targeted. While investigators acknowledge that time has passed since family was killed in 1990, they still believe that there are people out there who have information that will allow the police to move forward on these cases; there is still information out there from people who may have seen or heard something suspicious. For example, if someone was acting suspicious around

the time of the fatal fire, if something was said about the family, if anyone was seen leaving the scene of the fire. Helga was a single mother worked as waitress at the local café in the Crest Hotel. She was known as a happy and very friendly woman, who was personable and well liked by her regular customers. She was also known as a supportive woman, especially to her kids and new grandchild. The father of 7-month-old Kimberly Dumais, Tim, and other surviving family members and friends want the individual responsible to be brought to justice before another anniversary comes and goes. Anyone with information is asked to call the Provincial Unsolved Homicide Unit at 1-877-543-4822 or Crime Stoppers.

X ADDRESSING FROST

RTI chair discusses Suncor court case By Shaun Thomas The Northern View

ICBC’s (somewhat reluctant) Demystifier of Car Insurance.

“The bottom line is RTI works with customers. But we put worker safety first...If a customer gets a Court order we live with it. Suncor remains RTI’s customer and we look forward to honouring their contract,” he said.

Ridley Terminals Inc. chair Bud Smith says the request made to Suncor Energy to use an anti-freezing agent in the petroleum coke shipped to the terminals was done for the safety of the staff and is needed in light of the increased demand and tonnage being handled. The comments come at a time when Suncor is involved in a court case against the terminal and while RTI is under a court order not to refuse product from the company due to the lack of an anti-freeze agent. “From time to time we have frost or freezing issues with everyone who uses RTI. When we had four or five customers and shipped between three and four million metric tonnes we could use our discretion to deal with such issues on site. In 2011 we have 11 contracts and will ship about three times that amount,” he said. Smith says that ice issues at the terminal affect everything from the service for customers to management to worker safety and is an issue the company is certainly looking to address. “On Christmas Day RTI workers ‘volunteered’ to unload customer product. A few days later, Suncor rail cars came with ice the size of grand pianos. Our 3rd Avenue West, Downtown 250-624-5826 equipment was broken and we lost 19 of 24 hours www.mansonsjewellers.com workers had volunteered,” he explained.

I love road trips. And apparently so do many of you because a lot of people have been asking questions on my blog about what happens if you’re travelling outside of B.C. Some of the answers are below. Q: What do I do if I have a crash in the States? A: If you’re in a crash anywhere in Canada or the U.S., just call ICBC Dial-a-Claim at 1-800-910-4222. Telephone claims staff are available 24/7 to help you and explain what your policy covers. You can give them all the details and get the process started. Q: What if my car is too damaged to drive after a crash? A: The Dial-a-Claim staff are there to help get you back on the road. They’ll check to see if you’re covered for things like a rental vehicle or towing. If you’re not covered, don’t worry. They’ll help you get in touch with companies in the area who can provide assistance. Q: What happens if I’m in a crash in the States and the driver who’s responsible doesn’t have insurance? A: Don’t worry, you’re covered for up to $200,000 in case of injuries caused by uninsured drivers. Q: I’m renting a car on my upcoming trip. Do I need to buy the insurance offered by the car rental company?

OPINION

MY VIEW…

Ridley makes a great business case... As you can tell from the story generously provided by The Tumbler Ridge News in last week’s issue of the Prince Rupert Northern View, not everyone is happy with Ridley Terminals signing an agreement to provide a set amount of capacity to a US company. Frankly they’re justified in their disapproval of the contract - after all Ridley Terminals is a Canadian Crown Corporation owned by the people of this country to promote and assist in the development of the mining industry in the western provinces and northeastern BC as a whole. That being said, I think people expressing their disappointment and concerns is nothing but a good thing for Prince Rupert and Ridley Terminals. That may sound strange to say, but it does make sense. The concern by people about Ridley Terminals selling capacity at the terminal to a US coal company shows one thing and one thing only: There is a need for more capacity at the terminal to better benefit the people of Canada. What Ridley Terminals did was sign a contract for guaranteed volumes at the expense of, what is right now, potential volumes in the future. And is there a better way to show the governments of BC and Canada that more capacity is needed in order to meet the demands of the Asian markets than to reach capacity with existing mining operations and have countless more mining operations complain because they’ll need capacity when their project comes online?

It’s basically making the business case for expansion as clear as it possibly can be: The facility is full with coal from companies that want to reach Asia, and there are a lot more companies that want to reach Asia using Ridley Terminals we need more capacity.

The expansion at Ridley Terminals to double capacity will not only benefit the north coast, but those mining operations and communities raising their voices now by ensuring there is enough shipping capacity for that coal volume and more that may be coming.

The need for a balanced approach in the tourism sector It is often said that tourism is an “industry of industries.” Many different types of businesses and organizations are needed to create a healthy tourism economy. This is true even of businesses that don’t have an obvious tourism role. Tourism is divided into sectors. In a broad definition of tourism, there are eight identified sectors: accommodation, adventure tourism and recreation, attractions, events and conferences, food and beverage, tourism services, transportation, and travel trade. However, we use sectors a little less generally in describing local tourism. So in our case, wildlife watching, sport fishing, cruise ships, and so on, are seen to be sectors in addition to the broader sectors of museum/accommodation, or transportation. In the local market these are often very distinct from one another in their needs, opportunities and challenges. For example, without getting into too much detail, there are very different challenges facing individual segments of our market this season. In cruise we need to develop our offering to

Social media the perspective of Tourism is a powerful new force that Prince Rupert, each of the sectors of our local industry have very allows us to target even more specifically, different audiences. Since it is our role to for very little investment. For example, market Prince Rupert to all visitors, we have we traditionally reached our sport fishing to split our limited resources in an attempt to audience, primarily based in northern BC and Alberta, through fishing magazines, and benefit all sectors.

businesses operating primarily in one or another of the sectors to market to their audiences to the exclusion of others, but of course this would be counter-productive to the needs of the community. Our duty, in marketing the community, is to see the big picture. A non-traditional tourism business such as a dry cleaner sees benefit from tourism traffic on BC Ferries. Likewise our cruise capacity is greatly enhanced by, say, ensuring that our sport fishing operators remain strong in their traditional markets and have the capacity to offer excursions for cruise ship passengers. The truth is that in a town like Prince Rupert, we’re all in the tourism industry. Tourism is one of the things that sustains the businesses we rely upon in Prince Rupert – even non-traditional tourism businesses, furniture stores, bakeries and what-haveyou, are sustained in part by tourism revenue circulating in the community. No single sector within the tourism industry can be singled out – we must keep it all healthy, and growing, for the long-term health of the community.

“Yes. It costs money to get to the main terminal, and some people get confused where the smaller terminal’s location is.”

“No, I like the location because it’s closer to the seaplane base, where I and a lot of other people, go to right after. “

“Yes I am because I won’t have to take the shuttle to the main terminal anymore.”

“That sounds great! It would be easier for transportation.”

Work on pool for Haida Gwaii is certainly welcome news Editor: Having attended the most recent Skeena Queen Charlotte Regional District Board meeting this past January 21st in Prince Rupert, I am happy to report that the Representative for Area E, Sandspit, Moresby Island, brought a motion to the table as a late addition to the agenda, that will address the need for indoor pool facilities for the communities of Haida Gwaii.

It was devastating to learn in December of 2010, after a full two years or expectation, that the Greater Massett Development Corporation, the owners of the old pool that closed in Masset due to becoming obsolete, had decided that they were not in the business of recreation centre development. This after originally communicating in public meetings that they were following up with plans to create a new rec centre for the Massett area.

What a let down it was, again, in particular for the children who love to swim, but also for all the people who enjoy the health and social benefits of a leisure / pool facility. However, on the other hand, we the public finally have the opportunity to act on our own now without the restriction of this private group, who did not hold public meetings except once per year. After all, such facilities are best planned through comprehensive community

consultation, particularly in areas like ours with smaller populations and tax bases. I encourage the people of the Charlottes / Haida Gwaii to take this issue “by the horns” and encourage their representatives at all levels of government to create forward movement on pool and related recreational facilities development. As we all realize, this will require innovation in terms of energy production, and multi-use facilities, but these options are available and

Filipino culture is also all about family Editor: This is in response to Amy Wong, President of the Prince Rupert Chinese Association published on Wednesday, January 26, 2011. - This event can be enjoyed by every member of the family because unlike celebrations such as Filipino Night, Chinese New Year is a family oriented gathering. “Family is the most important thing in out culture, so we don’t exclude the children.” The Filipino Canadian Association of Prince Rupert is not exclusive for community social. Filipino Night is not the only function we undertake. This Night

is to express our deepest appreciation to the community for their unending support. Without the Prince Rupert community and members, we would not be as successful as we are to reach our 38th year. Nevertheless, for we Filipinos, just as you say in the Chinese culture, “Family is the most important thing.” We have our Annual Picnic, Halloween and Christmas Parties with our families and thus include our children – every member of our family unit. In addition, these family-oriented gatherings also welcome non-members to join us. Each family will bring an array of our Filipino dishes to share with everyone.

We pass the hat to provide prizes for our children’s games. You should come to one of our gatherings so will witness how family-oriented the Filipinos are. Respectfully, Jeanette Reyes Member Filipino-Canadian Association of Prince Rupert Editor’s note: It is important to clarify that the comparison of Chinese New Year to Filipino Night was not one that was brought forward by Amy Wong rather a connection made by our news staff.

X HITTING THE NET

City to begin streaming council meetings on the web By Monica Lamb-Yorski The Northern View Prince Rupert City Council meetings will soon be accessible from home through a live stream on computer. Over the last month, the City’s IT department has been tweaking the service and began recording online at the first council meeting in 2011. “In the past we only had audio recordings as you recall, so now we’ve been doing video. It’s a twopart project. We will be putting past videos on the website and streaming live. Our plan is to try and beam down on February 28 so people can see the trial run,� said Marko Kessler of the City’s IT department. Since 2007, the past audio recordings of council meetings

have been posted on the City’s website, but the IT department wanted to make some changes with the videos so that viewers could be more selective. “When we first set up the videos, you pressed play and you had to watch the whole thing. We wanted to set it up like YouTube style so you can click in the middle, it will hob and buffer in the middle, and you can just watch a portion of it,� Kessler said. “We also set it up so you can watch it full screen.� On Valentine’s Day, Kessler and his co-worker Anson Yeung will do an internal trial of the live stream. “I’ll watch it from home and Anson can run it from City Hall,� said Kessler. For years the community has been able to watch council meetings

broadcast locally on Channel 10. That will continue, but the live feed will now be split to go to a computers for live streaming. “It’s the exact same program that goes to Channel 10 and we’ve added a piece of gear to make it happen. Nine tenths of the infrastructure was there,� Kessler said. Whether Prince Rupert is catching up to other communities of similar size or not with the new technology Kessler doesn’t know, but he is convinced that the technology will give wider Monica Lamb-Yorski photo access to the community to City of Prince Rupert’ IT department’s Marko Kessler said the commucouncil meetings. nity will soon be able to watch council meetings live on the computer “I know there are some people that don’t have cable and can’t watch it so we thought it thinking about doing this for about The live stream will be available would be a good idea.

The response acknowledges that the CRA has determined that costs for meals and accommodations while at a medical facility are eligible for the medical expense tax credit if it reasonable in those speciďŹ c circumstances for the patient to remain at the facility. Eligible costs can include meals and accommodation for an individual accompanying the patient if the patient is certiďŹ ed as being unable to travel alone. The issue came to the attention of the North West Regional Hospital District Board of Directors when community members had their medical travel expense claims denied. The previous position of the CRA had been that meals and costs incurred while in the location that the medical services were provided are not eligible for the credit with the reasoning that once you have reached the locality where the services are provided you are no longer “travelingâ€?.

X NDP LEADERSHIP RACE

X HAZARDOUS HIGHWAY

Candidate Farnworth visits Rupert Greyhound bus is hit by falling ice on highway By Shaun Thomas The Northern View

As the selection of the new leader for the provincial New Democratic Party (NDP) draws closer, the first of the leadership candidates made their way to Prince Rupert on the afternoon of February 1 to meet with party members and residents. Mike Farnworth spent two and a half hours at the Oceanview Hotel fielding questions and providing comments to a crowd in the dining area, and said much of what he heard had to do with a disconnect between the provincial government and northern BC. “People are tired of being neglected. It is important for the government to listen to what communities like Prince Rupert and the northwest have to say. The government has paid a lot of money for Skytrain stations and pillars, but they need to hear rural BC,” he said following the session. “Regional economic development works…For a lot of the challenges in BC, especially those related to economic development, the solutions are in the communities and in the region if the government is willing to take the ‘one size doesn’t fit all’ approach.” If elected as the leader of the NDP, who was making his fourth trip to Prince Rupert, Farnsworth said he has a number of priorities to be looked at. “I think the priorities would be to unite the party, get ready for an election and win, and lead a government that people have confidence in, that listens to the people and that is in tune with the

The uninjured bus passengers were taken to nearby Kasiks Lodge to get out of the cold and to wait for a bus to come pick them up.

Falling ice damaged a Greyhound bus on the night of February 4, sending it off of Highway 16 west of Terrace, causing two injuries. The ice, which fell from a rock face, struck the front of the bus in an area of very icy roads and it came to rest in a ditch at approximately 7:30 p.m. Call today and I will get The driver was injured but the eight an ad working for you! passengers were uninjured.

X OPEN LONGER, MORE OFTEN

ANGEL SUPPORT…

Museum hours being revamped By Monica Lamb-Yorski The Northern View The Museum of Northern B.C. has told city council the Visitor Information Centre will be open from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. seven days a week from the May long weekend until the end of August, with the exception of Thursdays when it will be open until at least 8 p.m. because of the cruise ships. Last December the museum was informed council would only approve the Community Enhancement Grants for the amounts of $70,000 to run the Visitor’s Centre and $14,500 for Kwinitsa Station Museum pending council’s approval of a peak season schedule. In 2010 the Museum took over the operation of the Visitor Information Centre and it was relocated to the museum from Atlin Terminal. Councillors said they were hearing from the community concern about the hours of operation. During a presentation to council by museum curator Susan Marsden and director Robin Weber, Marsden said the Visitor’s Centre is presently open from 9 a.m. to 5

p.m. five days a week. While the museum agrees that increased hours are desirable for the tourist season, it’s not a case of simply having one employee stay on for two hours each day. “Because the visitor’s centre is in the lobby of the museum, visitors access the gift shop, museum and visitor’s centre through the same doors and while it may seem logical that only one of these functions can be open at any one time, it is not the case,” Marsden told council. Visitors are annoyed if only one function is open at any one time and so it is necessary to have all three open, she added. Marsden said in order to keep the VC open in the evenings, at least three people will need to be working. A front desk person for museum reception and visitor’s centre counsellor, a gift shop person, and a senior staff member for crises and security. Additional costs to keep the museum open longer, she said, will be absorbed by the museum, probably primarily from its bus tour revenue and perhaps additional admission and gift shop sales in the evening. “Last year was our first year with the bus tour and we actually

generated quite a bit of revenue that helped us pay down our deficit in the museum budget,” Marsden explained. Weber outlined some unanticipated costs. They included a new wind-proof Visitor Information Centre banner for the outside of the building, the responsibility to cover the wages for one of two people on the B.C. Ferries satellite Visitors Centre system through Tourism B.C., the cost of a facilitator to train staff to run the VC and the printing and shipping of City map pads. “Port Hardy pays for one Lisa Letnes photo of the ferry staff and Prince Rick McChesney and Bob McMeekin of Cook’s Jewellers present Rupert pays for the other,” a cheque for $2,160 to Captain Gary Sheils of the Prince Rupert Salvation Army.

X AN EXTRA 14 MONTHS

Cohen Commission delay impacts Tsimshian negotiations By Tom Fletcher Black Press Justice Bruce Cohen will have an extra 14 months to get to the bottom of the mystery of the dwindling Fraser River sockeye salmon, a delay that could impact treaty negotiations involving the Coast Tsimshian. His inquiry into the downturn has been granted an extension, with a final report now due by June 30, 2012 instead of this spring. Cohen cited the complexity of the commission’s work, the difficult and time-consuming document disclosure process and large number of participants in obtaining more time. The commission’s budget is also increasing, from $14 million to an estimated $25 million. Hearings are now slated to run until at least September.

The commissioner is to make recommendations on improving the future sustainability of the sockeye fishery, including potential changes in policies, practices and procedures of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO). The delay has caused anger among First Nations that are close to treaties that can’t be concluded until the federal government signs off on guaranteed shares of the salmon fishery. Six treaty tables where agreements-in-principle are close are in limbo because Ottawa won’t finalize treaty fishing rights until it receives Cohen’s findings, according to Sophie Pierre, chief commissioner of the B.C. Treaty Commission. “Because of the delay, what we’re concerned about is the growing debt First Nations are facing,” she said, referring to the

loans aboriginal groups must incur to cover their negotiating costs. “We have First Nations negotiating tables that are fast approaching the tipping point where what they’re going to get in terms of a cash offer for selfgovernment is going to be less than what they owe for going through these negotiations. So what’s the point?” The BCTC says aboriginal groups facing treaty completion delays as a result of Cohen include the Te’Mexw, Tla-o-qui-aht and K’okoks (Vancouver Island); the Namgis and Oweekeno (Central Coast), the Tsimshian (North Coast) and Yekooche (North). Also critical of the delay is Conservative MP John Cummins (Richmond-Delta East), who argues Cohen is devoting too much money to his own staff and scientific studies without probing

DFO’s management of the fishery hard enough. “I see it as throwing good money after bad,” he said. Testimony this month is concentrating on harvest management issues. The judicial inquiry was called after the collapse of the 2009 sockeye run, when just over a million fish returned, File photo about a tenth the Justice Bruce Cohen listens to residents at the expected number. A huge return in eharing in Prince Rupert last year. 2010 of around 30 million Fraser sockeye is thought volcano fertilizing the ocean and by most experts to be an anomaly, supercharging the food supply for possibly due to an Alaskan juvenile salmon.

X OP-ED

Things that you should know for making your own wines I started making my own wines a few years ago. I was introduced to it by a few friends who bottled a few batches of wine every year and made the most delicious mulled wine. Since then I have been mostly impressed with homemade bottles that I have tasted. Wines that you brew yourself are great for the second or third bottle of the night wines. Hosting a dinner party or even a kind of casual dinner at home usually means opening a bottle or two of wine; sometimes after the food is finished the wine sipping still continues – after a few glasses of wine anyone’s discerning palate becomes a little tired and a little tipsy, good wine gets wasted at this point. There is not much benefit to opening up a bottle of full retail vino when your palate is too sloshed to appreciate it. Homemade wine is great in this circumstance – it is affordable and less complex

than commercially produced wines; making them easy drinking and simple. It also doesn’t make you feel like you’re wasting $30 on a wine that no one will notice. Locally the U-Brew is a great place to educate yourself about making your own ANDREA wine. There are very affordable wine kits and equipment that you can purchase to get yourself started. You can also brew your own wines right in the store – they look after the process for you, and have everything you need to do the bottling. The quality of the juice in available wine kits is very high and usually a combination of Canadian and international grapes. You can also look to secure yourself some

real grapes to press on your own or even buy juice from a regional winery if you want to dabble in your own home. This week I have chosen a few wines that were introduced at a U-Brew wine dinner here in Prince Rupert. These wines were chosen to mimic the flavour POLLOCK and style of limited edition batches that will be available for sale later this year.

X ENTERTAINMENT

Artists gather for creative jam By Martina Perry The Northern View Starting last Friday, many locals took part in the Creative Jam 2011, a series of workshops on four fine-arts disciplines that were “jamming” on a common theme of “learn-create-improvize-perform” with a public presentation of the pieces created on Sunday. Four facilitators came into town for the series of workshops coming from impressive backgrounds. For the art workshop Sheila Karrow was brought in. Karrow is an awardwinning artist who is influences by early Canadian landscape painters in her pieces, illustrating the symbiosis of the human spirit and the land. Bas Rynsewyn, who earned himself a fine arts degree, and who is the current managing and artistic director of Serious Moonlight Productions, was brought in to help people in drama through the workshop, as well as Genni Gunn, who is a writer, musician and translator with eight published books to assist in

creative writing. The last facilitator brought in was Wyckham Porteous to assist in song writing. Porteous has recorded two albums in the studio. On Sunday, the presentations started out on the Lester Centre stage with the creative writing group who all composed one sestina poem with one another that they all read, as well as a few others in the group reading their own sestina poems aloud. The next discipline up was drama, with the four participants doing a variety of improvisation performances that had the crowd laughing. After a reading from Gunn, the song writer’s took on the stage with their piece, A Shifting Tide, that they all composed together. The group consisted of many guitar players, a bassist and a trumpet playing Peter Witherly. The art discipline couldn’t exactly take their creations on stage, other than the mural the group made together, which was hung up to be seen during all the other discipline’s showings, but

throughout the Lester Centre lobby there were a number of lovely colour pieces that really caught the eye. The last Creative Jam workshop sessions were held in 2000, and organizer Peter Witherly says that he hopes to hold another Creative Jam sooner than later.

X POTENTIAL OLYMPIAN

PRSS alumni making an impact in international badminton By Martina Perry The Northern View

Prince Rupert’s own Adrian Steve Liu has had aspirations of playing badminton in the Olympics since he was young, and after years of competing all around the world and winning countless championships including recently taking the top spot at the 2011 Yonex Canadian National Championships in Toronto with partner Derrick Ng, the pair are now poised to represent Canada at the 2012 Olympic Games. “I was quite surprised [to find out about ranking 25 in men’s doubles]. It feels great to be listed amongst all those great players,” Liu told the Prince Rupert Northern View. Liu’s interest in badminton grew after he graduated from Prince Rupert Secondary School in 2001 when he pursued post-secondary education at Langara College in Vancouver. While attending the school, Liu tried-out, and made the school’s badminton team and got the opportunity to meet exOlympian Darryl Yung who is also the founder of ClearOne, one of Canada’s top badminton training centres.

During his time of training at Langara, Liu would obtain two Men’s Doubles Provincial titles and a second place finish in the Canada College Athlete Association Badminton Challenge. As well, during Liu’s forth year at school, he met Derrick Ng who became his long-time partner in badminton. After completing school, Liu managed to train more frequently becoming a full-time athlete, training under the direction of Yung, Ronne Runtulalo, Peter Huang and Sandi Arto. During this time, Liu would train for multiple hours a day, would travel to train in countries such as Indonesia and to compete in around ten international tournaments a year. In 2006/2007, after reconnecting with partner Derrick Ng, the pair won the BC Provincial championship title, which would only the start to what they would earn together. A year later, Liu and Ng were selected to represent Canada at the PanAmerican Championships in Peru reigning very victorious at the XV Peru International Challenge in Lima, taking home two team championship titles. Last year Liu and Ng continued

racking up even more top spots in Pan American tournaments. The team took semi-final results at 2010 Pan American Championships, and the Puerto Rico International Challenge, as well as taking finalist results at the Brazil International and Santo Domingo International. Currently, the pair has been ranked 25 in the world for Men’s Doubles, and 49 in the world for mix doubles, which makes them poised and a very likely candidate for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, England, a life long dream of Adrian Steven Liu. Liu is presently training at ClearOne Badminton in Vancouver under the direction of Yung and his partner Bobby Milroy. Contributed photos

Steve Liu, who graduated from PRSS in 2001, is in the top 25 in the world when it comes to men’s doubles and has found success in the Pan-American Championships on two different occasions.

X CHECKING IN ON THE POLICE

TIP-OFF…

Civil liberties reports on RCMP service By Shaun Thomas The Northern View

The BC Civil Liberties Association today released the results of their community consultations on the services offered by the RCMP as the province looks at whether or not to renew the service contract with the RCMP, and it is a report that doesn’t paint a positive picture of the force in the community. “Participants in Prince Rupert did not have many positive comments about RCMP conduct in their community. In fact, despite the facilitator’s repeated attempts to solicit positive comments, only one participant identified her comment as a positive one,” reads the report, noting that another positive comment from participants was directed to the work done by Inspector Bob Killbery. “Bob Killbery, head of detachment

here, always had open ears when calling with client with problems with the RCMP, I’ll give him that. Mind you, the client couldn’t himself or herself get through to him, but he has open ears. Problems have been resolved that way,” said the participant A lot of the comments contained in the reports are of single incidences involving the Prince Rupert RCMP, which range from traffic enforcement stories that include ticketing an 85-year old for not wearing a seatbelt even though he had recently had surgery and had a note allowing him not to drive with a seatbelt, to concerns about how the RCMP deal with youth. “My concern is that they’re not really doing as much as they should be doing when it comes to policing especially young children and the older teenagers,” said one participant.

“I want to hear more about what we can do to protect our children. We have people up in the Kootenay area, McKay Street who are petrified of gangs, they have young kids in those areas, they’re witnessing this.” And while there were a number of negative comments, it was also acknowledged that not all of the blame can be placed on the RCMP. “Participants throughout the workshop repeatedly emphasized the lack of treatment options for people with alcohol and drug addictions in the community and the systemic problems to which this lack of treatment leads,” reads the report. “One participant expressed concern about a lack of empathy among officers that comes from repeated contacts with addicted populations.”

Rampage take game one against Demons By Allan Hewitson

Kitimat Northern Sentinel The Kitimat Ice Demons controlled 90 per cent of the opening game of the best of three CIHL West Division final against Prince Rupert - but failed to capitalize on a barrage of shots and lost 3-2 to the Prince Rupert Rampage. The Prince Rupert defense and Keith Movald in goal played a valiant game - but the difference was in opportunism as the Rampage seized on the few opportunities presented to put the puck in the net. The Ice Demons had a slow start to the game, but were much more offensive than the Rampage and were unlucky to fall behind 1-0 on a nicely scored goal by Chris Woodrow, who went in one-on-one, got around Jeff Mildenberger on defense and lofted a shot over Jamie Moran in the Kitimat net. Early in the second period, Terry Whelan (Wade Masch) was in a position to slap a hard shot at the crush in front of Movald and got it through on a deflection to tie the game. Greg Sheppard objected to Ian Coleman spraying snow on a

hard stop in front of Movald and took the ice Demons player hard into the corner after the whistle, resulting in a double roughing and unsportsmanlike penalty for Sheppard and a roughing for Coleman. The Demons pressed hard but did not capitalize on the power play but shortly after that was over Movald went down awkwardly on a save and to compound matters, Blaine Markwart was assessed a two minute boarding penalty. Chris Woodrow fought for a puck in the Demons’ corner and got a pass across to Brett Stava who tipped it past Moran, to make it 2-1 on the power play. Shortly after that, with the Demons pressing hard for the equalizer, Keith Movald dropped awkwardly to cover up a puck in his crease. Sheppard with a vicious crosscheck to Craig Hewitson sent the forward tumbling on top of Movald into the net. Movald took a long time to get up and with Kitimat again pressing its power play hard, the defence was caught pinching and Rupert got a good block that sent Kendall

Stace-Smith and Johnnie Hunt in on a shorthanded two-on-one. Moran stopped the initial shot from StaceSmith but Hunt was right there to lift the rebound into the net. Allan Hewitson photo T h i s The Rampage celebrate the victory. stunning turn of events sent the temperature up on the Ice one with 6:06 remaining in the Demons’ bench going into the period. Ben Rego also earned third period and the pummelled an assist. the Rupert net. But Movald As the play wore down and held firm and the tiring defense the clock became the enemy, blocked away numerous shots. the Ice Demons eventually Rupert did not get a shot in the pulled goaltender Moran and period until the 12 minute mark went with six attackers...but when Colt Stava made Moran the defense held out, even make a glove save on a shot getting five cracks at the empty from centre ice. The pressure net, three stopped by defenders finally paid off for the Ice and two missing for icing. Demons when Wade Masch, Game two goes Saturday at converted to centre, pushed a eight p.m. at the Jim Ciccone Derek Wakita rebound over the Civic Centre arena. If needed line to get the Demons within game three is Sunday at 1 p.m.
