X LOBBYING CAMPAIGN

Regional District to fight ferry price increases By Alan S. Hale The Northern View

www.citywest.ca

Members of the Skeena Queen Charlotte Regional District board are getting set to launch a lobbying campaign to try to persuade the Provincial Government to stop BC ferries from potentially raising fares along northern routes by about 25 per cent every year from 2012 until 2016. That means by 2016, going from the mainland to the Haida Gwaii could cost more than twice as much as it does now. “I did a quick little calculation. If you add 25 percent, on top of 25 percent, on top of 25 percent, on top of 25 percent, our $380 round trip for a car is going to turn into a $900 trip pretty quickly,” said board

chair, Barry Pages who is also the mayor of Masset. According to Pages, Masset has put together a petition, slated to be fished on Monday, but he told the committee that they needed to come up with some kind of strategy to meet the problem head-on. Prince Rupert mayor Jack Mussallem suggested that the board should be getting local MLA and former ferries critic Gary Coons in for a meeting to discuss possible actions that could be taken. Mussallem was also designated by a board to bring up the issue at an upcoming roundtable on transportation in Prince George. Board member Bard Setso believes that they need to do much more. “I think we need to sit down and come up with more of a strategy than just sitting down with our MLA. I think we need to

launch a huge lobbying campaign requesting that the appropriate minister and BC Ferries come up to the north to have some town hall meetings. And we need to recruit as many groups as possible; special interest groups, First Nations, whatever. This is a very serious issue - This could cripple the whole island,” said Setso. Board members are worried that such a dramatic increase in ferry costs could drive up prices for goods on Haida Gwaii and decimate the region’s tourism industry. “Right now on the island we’re paying close to $7 for a gallon of milk. The difference between that and the $3 they pay in Rupert is mainly because of freight. You go and double those freight costs, we’ll be paying $10 for a gallon of milk,” said Pages.

Groups react to Halibut quota decision by Federal Fisheries Minister

Alan S. Hale

The Northern View Federal fisheries minister Gail Shea made some changes to the quota system for pacific halibut in an attempt to settle the conflict between the commercial and recreational fishing industries in Prince Rupert and across British Columbia. When the 2011 Halibut season begins on March 1, average recreational fishermen will be allowed to catch one halibut a day and have a maximum of two in their possession outside of their homes. This catch limit is actually lower that what it was before, which was catch two halibut a day with three in possession. The lower catch limit is likely an attempt by DFO to make the recreational fishery go through it’s quota slower so it will not run out of quota by July, which is what representatives of the recreational industry warned was going to happen. But the minister went farther than that. She also introduced an “experimental” new license targeted at charter boat and loge businesses. Under the new licenses recreational fisherman will be able to purchase extra quota from commercial fisherman. “This will provide access to halibut beyond the limits of the standard recreational license, giving those who choose to participate greater stability for business planning purposes,” says Shea. The government’s decision may have upset more people than people than it appeased. Organizations representing the recreational fishery are fuming that the fisheries minister left the 88/12 split of the halibut quota unchanged. The industry has been arguing that because halibut are a common resource, commercial fishermen cannot own their share of quotas and shouldn’t be able to sell or rent it out. Ken Franzen has been organizing the recreational fishery’s efforts in Prince Rupert. He says that commercial fishes who don’t fish their quotes but rent it out instead should have it reallocated to recreational February 2010 fishermen who will fish it. Instead of DATE MAX MIN TOTAL

Plans moving ahead for Tsimshian cultural pavillion in Cow Bay By Alan S. Hale The Northern View

“This is more about interfacing with the living descendants of that culture. Looking at where they’ve come from and how they’ve evolved...”

The Prince Rupert Port Authority and the Chiefs of the Lax Kw’alaams and Metlakatla bands announced plans last week that could see a cultural pavilion constructed on the Prince Rupert waterfront. A committee has been formed to conduct a feasibility study for the new project and meetings with community stakeholders from Metlakatla and Lax Kw’alaams were held last week. The committee held a meeting in Prince Rupert on Tuesday to gather input from local residents and businesses. (Editor’s note: Look for more on that meeting online at www.thenorthernview. com and in this Friday’s issue of The Northern Connector) “The purpose of the meeting is to update the wider Prince Rupert community on the project, its structure, purpose, progress to date and the process moving forward. Feedback will be sought from participants and will be taken into consideration by the Project Team,” according to a Prince Rupert Port Authority press release. Te Taru White is acting as a consultant for the pavilion project and has helped shape the idea for the pavilion. White is a member of the Maori people from New Zealand, and is the curator of Te Papa, New Zealand’s national

Negotiations ongoing in Lax Kw’alaams ferry strike The Northern View

Negotiations between the Lax Kw’alaams band and the workers on the ferry to the community are continuing, but chief councillor Garry Reece notes that the ferry will continue to operate while the discussions take place. “There is an agreement now in terms of the percentages and a few other things, but there is still discussions to be had,” he said on February 21. According to Ken Lippet, who

represents the unionized crew, the strike stopped when the band council made the first the first installment towards paying the unpaid wages, despite the council’s previous position that it did not owe the crew money for the hours in between sailings. Before that, the Council had hired a new crew to replace the strikers and restore ferry service to Port Simpson, which has had to rely on water taxis during the strike. The replacement crew did not possess all the certifications required to operate the ferry and were not allowed to sail.

White says he would like to see a place that would meet visitors as they entered the harbour, ideally with a storyteller on board to begin the experience before they even leave the ship. Visitors could have drumming and dancing as they exited the ship then be guided to an interactive experience at the pavilion itself about the carving and weaving and storytelling that are found in Tsimshian culture.

He travels around the world helping Aboriginal communities try to turn their culture into an economic benefit like his people have managed to in the past several years, Now he hopes that the waterfront pavilion will be a stepping stone for the Tsimshian to share their culture. “It was very favorably received [at the meetings in Metlakatla and Lax Kw’alaams] And why not? We’re talking about a people who are bursting at the seams to talk about, to organize, to promote and profile their culture as an integral part of Prince Rupert and the Te Taru White islands,” said White. White says that he envisions the pavilion being located in the Cow Bay area in order for people who are disembarking cruise ships to be greeted with examples of Tsimshian culture. He says it shouldn’t be a museum where the focus would be on artifacts and archival history. “This is more about interfacing with the living descendants of that culture.

X CONCERNS ABOUT DEBT

Students hold mock soup kitchen to protest tuition costs By Alan S. Hale The Northern View

Students at Northwest Community College held a student debt soup kitchen on Wednesday last week as part of a protest against government inaction on reducing the student debt load, increasing tuition fees and, to a lesser extent, the recent cuts to student aid programs in the new 2011 provincial budget that was announced the day before. All of the event’s organizers greeted fellow students wearing prisoner-like orange jumpsuits and served up out bowls of Nisga’a Stew with a petition on the side.

X DANGEROUS BUILDING

City orders dilapidated house to be demolished for safety By Monica Lamb-Yorski The Northern View

A vacant house located at 1352 6th Avenue East in Prince Rupert is destined to be demolished. After hearing from staff this week, City Council unanimously passed a motion to declare the home a hazard and ordered it be demolished within 14 days. Building inspector Allan Scott warned the house could literally collapse at any time. “To eliminate the risk of someone getting hurt or killed the structure should be razed as soon as possible,” Scott outlined in a written report. Photographs accompanying Scott’s report show timbers braced against the building to prevent it from falling over. The registered owner of the house is deceased and in September 2010 the house was sold at a tax sale. City Administrator Robert Grodecki told council the community charter allows the City to pass the demolition order and go after the previous owner’s estate because the registered owner is deceased. “The charter also allows us to seek remedial action against the people that bought it at tax sale during the redemption period,” Grodecki said. Both parties under the Community Charter have a statutory duty to prevent the property from falling into disrepair and would be responsible for reimbursing the City in case the City incurs costs to legally wreck and remove the structure. Councillor Sheila Gordon-Payne asked if,

when staff inspected the building, and wrapped cautionary tape around it, there was there any sign that someone is living there. “At this time of year I’m sure people in the neighbourhood do know it’s not been occupied, but I would hate for us to find there was some kind of squatter living there as we move forward,” GordonPayne said. Grodecki said the home hasn’t been occupied for some time. “We know that one of the family members of the deceased registered owner was going to go back in there at one time to try and retrieve some belongings, but they got frightened because the building was shaking and rattling,” Grodecki Monica Lamb-Yorski photo said. This abandoned house was ordered demolished by city council because it Councillor Gina Garon asked if the City has is structurally unsound. to wait 14 days for the demolition. “I’m just really concerned about the condition of this building being that it’s in such disrepair and The Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) has established a Community Investment Fund (Fund) in danger of toppling to provide Ànancial support for projects or initiatives in the Prince Rupert area that enhance over,” Garon said.

OPINION

MY VIEW…

Minister makes right choice on Halibut... I know that all the Shaun Thomas fans out there will be disappointed, but our illustrious editor is away so it falls to me, a lowly reporter, to write an editorial in his stead. Last week, Ottawa finally made an attempt to put to rest the feud - and really that’s the best word for it, feud - between the commercial and recreational fishing industries over the pacific halibut quota. Ever since the issue emerged last month the two industries have been at each other’s throats. The debate is undeniably polarized and there will be no solution that will please everybody. But attacks from one industry on another, whether it be the commercial’s privatization of a common resource or the recreational’s much less stringent oversight, are not helpful and only serve to shrink the common ground that needs to be built upon. But for the moment, the government’s decision to introduce an experimental license to allow recreational fishermen to lease commercial quota is the right one - for now. In the long term though, something needs to give. The system where commercial fishers are allowed to rent out or sell their quota needs to come to an end. Period. But to take it all away all at once could leave many retired fishers in a terrible lurch, as some fishers have invested half a million dollars just to get that quota and expected to retire on the proceeds of leasing or selling it to others. The federal government should make it so that fishers may lease out their quota but not to sell, gift or inherit it. This way fishers from both industries can continue to lease the quota from each other as they need it and retired fishermen can recoup some of the many thousands of dollars they spent just by entering the industry.

As older fishers pass on their quota can revert back to the government who should give it to new fishermen at little or no cost, with the condition that they will not be allowed to sell or lease it. If the cost of entry into the industry is as small as possible, then the need to lease one’s quota will be diminished. This is by no means a perfect plan, and it would take decades to complete. But whatever method is taken, the halibut industry -

perhaps all fishing industries - need to reach a point where there are no people who have quota but don’t fish it; then there will enough for everyone who will. And this needs to be achieved without destroying the lives of people who have worked hard and were expecting a comfortable retirement. DFO’s plan is a fine temporary fix, but it’s the whole structure of the halibut fishery that is broken.

It seems that my song remains the same for tourism Not long ago I encountered a few 1996 copies of Prince Rupert This Week, from the height of the Mifflin Plan era and a year before the collapse of Repap. It seems that I wrote a lot about tourism. I was fresh from Prince Edward Island, and in my mind I saw warning signs at every turn. “During your lifetime and mine,” I wrote, “it is unlikely that this area will ever become the heavily-populated, industry-based world of central Canada. I pray that it never will. Life on the coast has always been sustained by natural resources. That lifestyle has taken crippling blows. If we want to avoid the recession that struck the Maritimes when the fishing industry died, we had better recognize our strengths and sell them to the world.” My point in this particular column, from July of that year, was that I had seen successful tourism industries and had seen tourism industries cheapen cultural resources. In my opinion, then as now, the

NWCC’s new Abalone Cam Remote Surveillance Project Contributed

The Northern View Northwest Community College (NWCC) science students and faculty are joining forces with the Metlakatla Fisheries in what is being called the Abalone Cam Remote Surveillance Project, a proposal to establish a remote camera broadcasting live video stream from a critical abalone site located 30 kilometres southwest of the city, where the threatened northern or pinto abalone species is still found in numbers. The video will be streamed to Metlakatla where it will be monitored and broadcast over the Internet for other agencies to view. The camera itself will have zoom, pan and tilt features and can be controlled from any computer. The remote site will have a power generation system that will be a combination of fuel and green power. Both the transmitter at the remote site and the receiver in Metlakatla will sit on towers tall enough to allow the signal line of site. Phase I of this project is now underway. In order to prepare for the final installation, NWCC science faculty Erfan Zahrai will work with his physics students to install the transmitter on NWCC’s campus building in Prince Rupert and transmit the signal to the

For the love of Wine: Choosing the right wine for chicken Heading into the spring, chicken usually becomes a larger part of the menu; it’s a little lighter, it’s very versatile and wonderful in all kinds of dishes as a main ingredient or simply one component. When you start to think of all the different ways you can prepare chicken, it is very daunting to think of all the possible choices there would be for wines to  match as well. So hopefully next time you are

.JOVUFT DBO

preparing a chicken dish and are looking for a wine to pair with it, you will think of a few of these quick tips. Chicken’s light natural flavour lends itself to picking up a lot of the flavour elements in sauces or other ingredients it is prepared with. Don’t worry so much about matching a wine to the chicken – figure out what will be the biggest flavour in the dish and try to find a match for that. For example, a chicken stir fry with a coconut curry sauce and rice will find the coconut and curry to overpower most of the other flavours and predominate. Choosing a wine to pair with these is essential – I might choose a Riesling, some sweetness to battle the curry and acidity to highlight the coconut. Flame roasted chicken with a bbq sauce

would pick up an entirely different set of flavours, like hickory, smoke and molasses. These types of flavours would pair nicely with a light bodied red wine with low tannins – think pinot noir or merlot. These grapes both show a nice earthiness and can show nice charred qualities when aged in toasted oak. This would match well with the flamey flavours absorbed by the chicken. This week I have chosen two great chicken wines that can help highlight the big flavours in your next poultry entree. Wines of the week Peller Estates Chardonnay 2007 – [VQA Okanagan Valley] A familiar nose with lemon and grass cuttings; a weak nose that is very gentle. Clean tart flavours of lemon and lime zest,

a dry style that is easy to drink on its own, but would also match nicely with simple seafood or chicken dishes made without heavy spices. 87/100 (October 11, 2010) Peller Estates Private Reserve Merlot 2004 – [VQA Niagara Peninsula] The hue has a slight bit of brown suggesting that this wine has passed its peak. Green pepper and charred oak with a little bit of detectable red fruit in the background. As the wine sits and opens there are some delicate smells of chocolate, clove and chives. Flavours are nicely balanced with a punch of smoke with some nice earth and wild mushroom flavours. This is easy to pair with a variety of pork and chicken dishes. 90/100 (November 30, 2010)

Port sees decreases and increases in January By Shaun Thomas ALL CONTEST DETAILS ON

While the number of containers handled by Fairview Terminal was down slightly in January 2011 compared to January 2010, other facets of the port of Prince Rupert are already seeing significant growth compared to last year. In total Fairview Terminals handed 23,070.3 TEUs last month compared to 26,236 last January, a drop of 12.1 per cent. The number of TEUs being imported fell by 17.1 per cent, from 15,311.3 to

12,689, while the number of exports grew fell from 10,924.8 to 10,381.3, a drop of five per cent. But the export numbers could be a bit misconstrued, as the number of loaded TEUs being exported grew by 139.5 per cent, climbing from 2,743 to 6,570.3, and the number of empty TEUs fell by 53.4 per cent. Coming off of a record year last year, Ridley Terminals continues to experience growth heading into 2011. The company started off the year with a 28.4 per cent increase in tonnage being handled, rising from 684,563 tonnes to 878,906 tonnes. And the number of logs being exported through

the harbour more than quadrupled year-to-year, climbing 405 per cent from 9,772 tonnes last January to 49,351 tonnes this year. Prince Rupert Grain, meanwhile, started 2011 with a slight drop in tonnage handled but a noticeable difference in products being shipped. Total tonnage for the facility sat at 379,030 tonnes, down just 1.8 per cent from the 386,160 tonnes. Of note, there was no barley shipped this January compared to the 12,360 tonnes shipped last year, and 164,435 tonnes of Canola shipped this year compared to none last year. Shipments of wheat were down 43.9 per cent.

City making changes to its rates for water and sewer By Monica Lamb-Yorski The Northern View

It’s been a long haul for Prince Rupert hoteliers Frank Zdravlje and Don McNeil. For almost two years, the two have advocated the City change the way it configures its commercial sewer rates. They wanted it changed from a flat rate, which they felt was inflated, to a rate that was tied to metred water consumption. They also wanted commercial sewer fees levied on the same target ratio as residential fees. This week the two got their wish when City Council passed two bylaws. One sets the sewer rate based on water consumption

with a ratio of 98 percent for both commercial and residential. The other bylaw sets the water rates for the next three years with increases of five per cent in 2011, five per cent in 2012 and 20 per cent in 2013 to encourage commercial entities to become metered. “We can thank the council and mayor. We are very happy with the result that should have come here ten years ago but it’s fine,” said Zdravlje at the end of Monday night’s meeting. McNeil agreed. “Fair is fair for residential or commercial. Everybody pays the same rate whether it’s electricity, water or sewer,” he said. There will be some commercial users that will see an increase in

sewer charges and this had council concerned. Councillor Sheila GordonPayne made a motion that council direct staff to allow people having a substantial increase in fees to negotiate a payment plan if necessary for their 2011 fees. “I would hope that if someone was to find this a real hardship that we’d be open to help them through it,” said Gordon-Payne. The motioned was passed unanimously. For residential users, the new rates translate into a $9 increase overall for 2011. There will be a reduction of $16 a year for water because the City will now base the

of the two bylaws at a special meeting held Wednesday at noon. After the meeting Mayor Jack Mussallem said the new bylaws will bring Prince Rupert into an era of economic fairness between all the rates that are set up as classification for the various sewer and water uses. “Billing will go ahead now, be processed and mailed out in March. There is still the ten percent discount for early payment so people will have the opportunity to take advantage of that,” the mayor said.

he has gone on to win multiple competitions including the VIIIth International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, and recorded many albums in the studio. Tselyakov has an extremely impressive amount of performing experience being part of orchestras such as the Leningrad Philharmonic, the Moscow Philharmonic, the Prince George Symphony Orchestra, as well as countless others. During his concert in Prince Rupert, Tselvakov stunned and captivated the crowd with his playing. One of the many highlights of the evening was Tselyakov’s rendition of “Twelve Portraits”, a very difficult piece that was a perfect display of his unbelievable skills. Throughout the concert,

the years, the City of Prince Rupert proclaimed that February 23 is now Rotary Day in Prince Rupert. “The motto of Rotary is service above self, and we’ve tried to live up with that,” said John McNish, who has been a member of the club for over 50 years. The club has been an outstanding help in the community over the past 90 years, helping with everything from community projects, like the children’s ward and new echocardiogram machine for the Prince Rupert Regional Hospital, to playing a key role in building the Friendship House to supporting construction of the 2nd Avenue Tennis Courts, joining with the Hecate Strait Rotary club to build the Rotary Waterfront Park, or supporting youth by sponsoring bursaries, and sending students on exchange trips, as well as countless other ways the club has assisted the community. The club finds the means to do all of its generous acts by holding fundraising events such as the annual Rotary Auction and sale of Christmas trees. As well, the club puts on non-fundraising events just for amusement such as the Polar Bear Swim, and in the past Bathtub Races during Seafest. At last Monday’s council meeting, Mayor Jack Mussallem recognized all of the club’s efforts during his speech and proclaimed February 23 as Rotary Day in Prince Rupert. During February, previous members and past presidents have been and will be continuing to attend meetings to share some of the club’s history and share their own experiences with the current members. Community contributions made by the Hecate Strait Rotary Club will also be remembered and celebrated on February 23. During the 1980s, when Prince Rupert was larger in size, the Hecate Strait Rotary Club was formed, and also provided assistance to the community, including the joint Rotary Waterfront Park project. Recently the two clubs decided to merge together to create one larger group, so members who were previously part of the Hecate Strait Club are also very included in the celebration.

PRESS RELEASE (February 11, 2011) Skeena Native Development Society Responds to Unfair Criticism Terrace BC. February 9, 2011. Chief Marjorie McRae, President of the Skeena Native Development Society, today addressed the articles that appeared in the Terrace Standard on February 1 and February 7, 2011. “I am shocked and disappointed at the treatment we have received from the federal government’s employment services department, Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC). The fact is that for over 20 years we have successfully delivered much needed employment, training and other opportunities to our communities.” The Society has met the obligations of the agreement with HRSDC, contrary to the assertions from the unnamed federal officials. “ When HRSDC first raised issues, we met it head on. We retained an accountant to examine the books. In his opinion, the expenditures met the obligations. Our lawyer came to the same conclusion. We provided these opinions and reports to the government and asked for a meeting. This was before Christmas, but they have not responded. So how can the government say that our actions have not been sufficient?” she asks. “We worked very closely and in good faith with Service Canada these last few months, and then they pull the rug right out from under us with no notice whatsoever” “We are very troubled by the insinuation contained in these articles and by the quotes from these unnamed federal officials that the Society did something wrong. The fact is, we didn’t. “says Chief McRae. The Society will be asking for a meeting with Minister Finley to discuss this matter. In the meantime, the Society is working diligently to address the fallout to the communities with respect to their clients which includes many daycare facilities.

X MIDGET REP

Sea Wolves play final games before zones begin in March By Martina Perry The Northern View

Over the weekend, the Prince Rupert Sea Wolves played their final two games before competing in the Skeena Valley League midget rep zones. The Sea Wolves took on Kitimat in two intense games that had each team win once and lose once. Game one took place on Saturday evening, with the first goal of the night being scored by Sea Wolves captain Garrett Santurbano at 16:07 in the first period. The Sea Wolves scored their second goal of the evening at 8:59 by Josh Kierce giving Prince Rupert the lead with a score of 2-0. After a minute of a great deal of body checking, and defensive playing, Michael Bell from Kitimat got his team their first goal at 7:16. The Sea Wolves brought took lead higher at 15:33 when Jordan Weir got a goal. Kitimat didn’t take it sitting down, scoring at 11:54 and again at 4:39, to bring the score to an even tie. Fortunately for the Sea Wolves Ben Mark got a puck in the net in the last two minutes of the period to bring the score to 4-3 for the Sea Wolves. 15 minutes into the third period Girbav scored a goal for Rupert, but around a minute later Kitimat’s Bell netted another goal for his team. In the final period, members of both teams were feeling the competition. Around nine minutes in the period there was a close call for a fight. Under 30

seconds later Tyler Ostrom of the Sea Wolves’ shot a puck right past Kitimat’s goal scoring the team’s sixth goal. As the end of the game drew nearer, Braydon Horcoff from the Sea Wolves and Michael Brat from Kitimat broke out in an intense fight that had two referees trying to separate them. In the last three minutes Kitimat stepped up their game and at 2:56 Connor Black scored their last goal of the night. When the final thirty seconds of the game began, Kitimat took out their goalie to add an extra player on the ice, which proved to be a mistake when, during the last three seconds of the game, the Sea Wolves’ Justin Fontaine added another goal to their total, making the final score 7-5 for the Sea Wolves. “At Saturday’s game the team had a good effort. The game was back and forth and we showed improvements from our last game,” Sea Wolves coach Roger Atchison stated, adding that the coaching staff are very impressed with the work ethic of the team members recently. Despite being the champions on Saturday, Sunday’s game was not one of the Sea Wolves best. In the first period, Kitimat gained themselves a hefty lead and kept it up in the second period. The Sea Wolves scored their first goal of the game at 5:51 in period two by Bryan Tates. In the end, the Sea Wolves only got themselves two goals, the second being made by Jadyn Archer at 5:16 in the last

period. The ending score was 8 to 2 for Kitimat. “We lost some momentum and Kitimat came on strong. This loss was a pretty tough one to take and we lost a little bit of composure, but overall I think our teams will be very prepared for zones,” commented Atchison, later adding, “They’re a really good squad.” The Sea Wolves finished first overall in the Skeena Valley League, which entitles them to host zones at home starting on Friday, March 4 and running until the 6. The Sea wolves will be playing their first zone game on Friday at 6 p.m., as well as games at 10:45 am and 6 p.m. on Saturday.

During play on Friday, Prince Rupert emerged as the only undefeated team, although many of the games were within a few points of being either team’s win by the final buzzer. Saturday morning started out with a matchup between BVCS and Skeena, to determine who would go on to play Prince Rupert in the final, which ended with a Skeena victory.
