Last Saturday over 200 residents voted and the District of Port Edward will now be able to borrow up to $2 million to construct a new school joined to the current municipal building after a referendum on the issue passed. After all of the anticipation on the referendum and what it would mean for the community, 204 Port Edward residents came out to vote with 175 of them voting in favor. 29 were opposed to the idea. “I was very happy with the number of people that came out to vote,” commented Mayor Dave MacDonald. “The numbers show that the community really wants the new school.” Mayor MacDonald and the District of Port Edward aren’t the only people who are happy with the referendum going through. The school board is also ecstatic that a

Northern residents got a chance to ask their questions about the HST directly to the government last Wednesday. The Minister of Jobs and Innovation, Pat Bell, answered questions put to him by the over 23,000 participants who called in from as close by as Haida Gwaii to as far away as Kamloops. This question and answer period with a provincial minister was part of a series of telephone town all meetings that the Liberal government has been holding over the past two weeks. According to Minister Bell, the point of these calls was not to try

to convince people that they should vote to keep the HST in the referendum this fall. “The intention of tonight’s town hall is not to sell you on the HST but to hear from you on what we need to improve the HST,” Bell told participants. If the goal wasn’t to persuade voters to keep the HST, you could be forgiven for thinking that it was. Bell mentioned more than once that the if the HST is repealed the province will be required to pay back the $1.6-billion that the federal government gave BC to help the transition to the HST and that it would also cost $3.5-million to reinstate the departments that managed and collected the PST. That, plus the lost revenue from switching back from the HST, would cause the government to lose $500-million a year in revenues. “You really have three choices: you can either increase taxes, you can increase the deficit or you can reduce services. As a cabinet minister I don’t find any of those solutions particularly attractive,” said Bell. Participants did have some ideas to make the HST better and Bell came across as more than willing to hear them. One caller suggested that energy efficient home renovations should be made exempt from the HST. Another suggested that prescription drugs should be exempt and someone else said that gym memberships should be too. Some participants used their time to talk directly to Bell to criticize the Liberal party for the way it brought in the HST, often accusing the Campbell government of outright lying. Bell admits the rolling of the HST “could have been handled better,” but attempted to deflect criticism by pointing out that the Liberal government has a brand new leader who had no involvement with those decisions. “We’re focused on the future, we think we have a very bright future in the province and we’re confronted with a very difficult issue; and that is, what do we do with the HST? I think that there is no more democratic process in society than going to the public and saying, ‘you make the decision’,” says Bell.

Prince Rupert among communities to host Enbridge meeting By Alan S. hale The Northern View The government panel in charge of reviewing the Enbridge pipeline project announced last week that it will be holding public information meetings in a number of different communities, one of which will take place in Prince Rupert. No date has been set for any of the meetings at this point, and no venues have been booked. But according to representatives of the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project Joint Review Panel, the goal is to have all 15 different meetings completed within the next two months.

this can be done in front of the panel in person or over the phone and can be no longer than 10 minutes. According to panel representatives there will be no limit on the number of oral statements given during the hearings. If someone wants to question the panel directly or submit evidence for consideration by panel members, they will have to become an intervener during the hearing process, something that it much more complicated and involved than the other two Week of May 11 options.

The meeting in Prince Rupert is not meant to be an opportunity for people to express their opinions on the pipeline, and no members of the panel will be present. Instead, it will be a public information session on how to have your opinion heard by the panel when it formally begins public hearing on January 10, 2012. The meetings will explain in detail the three different ways a member of the public say their piece to the panel. The easiest way is by submitting a letter of comment, where someone can simply write out their opinion and panel members will eventually read it and factor it in to their considerations. The second way is to give an oral statement;

With a few exceptions, Cunningham said, when people are dealt with one-on-one, they seem to be understanding and that’s what he’s heard from other staff. “The biggest challenges are the myths floating around like it doesn’t cost CityWest more so what’s the big deal. If that were true, it wouldn’t be a big deal and we wouldn’t be looking for a solution to the problem,� he said. “There’s also the belief that the CRTC said you couldn’t do this so what are you guys doing? Are you going to get fined or what’s going on here? The CRTC did say “no� to usage billing, but in certain cases and around wholesale arrangements that had nothing to do with retail pricing. It didn’t affect our wholesale, so they’re ruling didn’t even help us, which was unfortunate,� Cunningham added. Councillor Sheila Gordon-Payne asked if CityWest’s prices and caps are competitive with other companies and heard they are the same. “The price for going over the cap is $2 per gigabyte with Telus and with us,� he said. When asked for a timeline by Councillor Gordon-Payne, Cunningham answered CityWest is hoping to have an online portal by June or July where customers can access information about their own internet usage and after that’s implemented, will be given another two months before the company starts to enforce limits. Around the same time, the company will release new plans that are more closely tied to internet usage and customers will be able to switch if they choose.

Feds approve transmission line By Rod Link Black Press The Federal Government has approved construction of the Northwest Transmission Line, ending several months of waiting on the part of people and businesses in the northwest. Approval was granted on May 6 by federal officials working with Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Infrastructure Canada, the same agency providing $130 million of the line’s $404 million construction cost. “...Authorities are of the opinion that the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects,” read a brief statement regarding the approval. The line is to run 344 kilometres north of Terrace to Bob Quinn on Hwy37 North, providing a stable source of power to several mineral properties. One property, the Red Chris copper deposit owned by Imperial Metals, already has federal and provincial environmental approval and is now gathering together the necessary permits required for construction to start. Imperial needs to build its own line south to hook up to the Northwest Transmission Line at Bob Quinn and wants to be ready to commence mining as soon as the transmission line is ready. Terrace mayor Dave Pernarowski said the day was a “great day for Terrace and the region and the province”. “This is a much anticipated announcement and now it’s time to build,” he said. Provincial approval was granted the end of February but BC Hydro, the provincial agency which will build the line, was reluctant to press forward without first having federal approval. The crown corporation had been expected to name a design/build contractor in April, setting in motion a construction schedule leading toward a finish in late December 2013. Pernarowski said he expects BC Hydro to now quickly name its contractor. “I think probably they already have chosen one, but were waiting for the appropriate time,” he said. Pernarowski, co-chair of the Northwest Power Line Coalition, a collection of local governments and businesses which has been pushing for construction for years, said that while there was never any doubt the federal government would give approval the line construction plan did need to meet federal environmental requirements.

Rhythm & Blues Dinner & Dance

The Tahltan last month voted to approve of a deal with BC Hydro providing cash, employment opportunities and business opportunities connected to the transmission line’s construction. The Kitselas east of Terrace have also signed a similar deal. Also signing a deal for jobs and business opportunities with BC Hydro is the Nisga’a Nation. It has also given approval for a portion of the line to be built through the Nisga’a Lava Bed Memorial Park. The most immediate visible sign of the pending construction program will be the opening by BC Hydro of a Northwest Transmission Line information office in Terrace. That’s expected to be located in a professional building on Park Ave. across from George Little Park.

The election is over and change is afoot Well another Canadian election has come and gone, and I would be remiss if I didn’t provide a bit of my reaction to the events of May 2. To say the campaign in the Skeena - Bulkley Valley was underwhelming would be, to put it nicely, a massive understatement. While my hat goes off to everyone who threw their hat in the ring, there was just something missing this year. Many figured it would be the usual two-horse race between incumbent Nathan Cullen and the Conservative candidate, but the Conservative candidate wasn’t as aggressive as the past two elections (Mike Scott and Sharon Smith respectively). And I actually heard from other people involved in the campaign for different parties that “everyone knows Nathan is going to win anyway”. Yikes. On the national scene, I don’t think anyone could have seen the results coming the way they were. In one fell swoop the Bloc Quebecois, who had formed the official opposition in 1993 and only had fewer than 40 seats once in their history, was pretty much wiped off the map and left with only four seats. The Liberal Party, whose roots go back to the founding of the country and who have formed government 23 times since 1867, were left with just 34 seats - the lowest in the party history. The leaders of both parties were not elected and the NDP formed the official opposition for the first time in party history. Historic election? I would say so.

As far as the Bloc goes, good riddance. I was never a fan of a party that only runs in one province having so much power. But this is beginning to look like a shift to more of a U.S. style of government where voters on the left and the right end of the political spectrum vote for the furthest left

and right party in hopes of forming government. It was already said in this election that the NDP and Liberals were splitting the vote and that could have let the Conservatives go up the middle. That could only add fuel to the two-party fire.

The visitor season on the North Coast is now underway The tourism season is upon us. This week brings the first cruise ship of the season, the 2240-passenger Norwegian Pearl. Independent visitor traffic is already well under way, and here at Tourism Prince Rupert we have our first travel writer visit of the season. Visitors never really stop coming to Prince Rupert, of course. A trickle of visitors pass through even during the winter months. But for us the winter is a time for preparing materials that influence travel in the following years. This winter, as I mentioned in this column last week, one of our biggest projects was the launch of a completely redesigned website at, and a social media strategy built partly through Facebook, at “Visit Prince Rupert,” and Twitter, at @VisitRupert. Again, these will become more and more effective as more Prince Rupert content becomes available on social media networks. Please let us know if you’re generating Prince Rupert content on any social media sites. Of course there are countless other things

distributing maps and providing that occupy our time during the off-season. There are Talking tourism information. It remains a very innovative program, imitated in annual rounds of grant writing other places, and the hospitality and fundraising, updating all of our Ambassadors is frequently of our marketing materials, mentioned on cruise passenger working with travel writers surveys as one of the most and tour operators, and so memorable things about their on. This winter there was stay here. However, we think also the widespread concern that the Ambassador Program that cruise ship traffic will be can be made even better, and drastically reduced in 2012. to do it we’ve partnered with We joined with the Museum BRUCE WISHART Community Futures. To learn of Northern BC over the more, contact Treena Decker at winter in proposing ways to enhance the cruise visitor experience, 250-622-2332. In fact, over the winter Community and we’d like to see that taken farther. And although our function lies in external Futures has taken a big role in business marketing to bring visitors to Prince development for cruise as part of a cruise Rupert, and not in business development, task force called together by the Port Tourism Prince Rupert does play a small Authority. Community Futures has become role in cruise ship visits. This is primarily involved in, among other things, a busking through the Cruise Ship Ambassador program, and a booklet about Prince Rupert Program. to be distributed on board the ships. We We’ve been operating the Ambassador joined them in presenting the social media Program for 11 years. A dedicated group workshop that I mentioned last week. The of volunteers muster for each cruise ship, City has taken on other cruise development

initiatives such as partnering on the busking program, or working with Salmonberry Trading Company on the market across from Atlin Terminal. Meanwhile, as I mentioned, this week we also see our first travel writer of the summer season. San Jose-based Gary Singh is a columnist and former staff writer at Metro newspaper, and a freelancer for a variety of magazines ranging from Islands to Sunset. Gary is visiting at the invitation of Tourism Prince Rupert and the Northern BC Tourism Association. We need to do the mental shift that goes with the passing seasons here at TPR. In the winter we’re focused on the marketing cycle, and on being as prepared as we can possibly be. In summer we’re more focused on building upon that winter work by presenting Prince Rupert in the best possible light to visiting travel writers and tour operators. Gary Singh brings a unique perspective to each experience he encounters, so showing him around town, on a visit that includes cruise ship day, should be just the right thing to help us make that mental shift.

MP says Alberta oil spill a warning about Enbridge risks By Shaun Thomas The Northern View A pipeline breach in northern Alberta at the end of April that resulted in about 28,000 barrels, or approximately 4.5 million litres, of oil being released into the surrounding environment should

be a reminder of the dangers that could face the region with Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline project, says Skeena - Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen. “This should be another nail in the coffin for any idea of a pipeline across BC, and unfortunately


paints a pretty clear picture of what happens when you ship oil over land. And it should be noted that this spill happened in an area that is a lot less rugged than on the coast and the proposed route for Enbridge,” he said. “Those that say spills don’t happen or that this project will be too modern, people will be reminded that this is Russian Roulette - you never know when or where a spill will take place.” The leak in the 44 year old pipeline, owned by Plains Midstream Canada, was first

reported after a drop in pressure in the line on Friday and was repaired later that day. And while he said he wouldn’t comment on the specific situation with this spill, Enbridge Northern Gateway spokesperson Paul Stanway says that comparing that project to the Enbridge project is not a fair comparison. “The two are not alike at all… My understanding is the pipeline is 44 years old and technology has changed significantly since then. We’ll be using the most advanced technology available in the line,” he said, adding that any pipeline is still subject to approval

following the ongoing regulatory review. “We’re in the midst of that review which looks at our plans in detail, examines them in detail and asks all the questions that need to be answered…There will be public hearings that will test all of our assurances and engineering and we will be ready and look forward to that to show we are building the safest pipeline possible.” The spill did result in the closure of schools in Little Buffalo Alberta, where residents also complained of nausea and headaches in the days following the leak.


After 9PM Specials Panel reports on HST impacts Pizzas or Full Pastas

The independent panel reviewing the impact of B.C.’s harmonized sales tax has concluded that it increases prices for 17 per cent of an average family’s purchases, totalling $350 a year. The panel was appointed by the B.C. government as part of preparations for a mail-in referendum on the HST that begins in mid-June. The panel released its report Wednesday, after a delay to avoid release

during the federal election. It finds that the B.C. government is getting more revenue than it expected in the first year of the HST. The finance ministry’s initial projections were that rebates for low-income families, home energy use and other exemptions would result in a net loss in the first year. The report concludes that going back to the former provincial sales tax would cost the province $531 million in net tax revenues in the first year, with the amount increasing in subsequent years.

Fraser Institute report give local schools a failing grade By Shaun Thomas The Northern View On May 8 the Fraser Institute released its annual - and controversial - Report Card on Secondary Schools in British Columbia and Yukon, and once again schools in the Prince Rupert School Districts received failing grades. According to the report, the two high schools were well towards the bottom of the list. Out of 274 schools ranked, Prince Rupert Secondary School was tied with nine other schools in 227th place with a score of 4.6 out of 10 while Charles Hays ranked 269th with a score of 2.6 out of 10. PRSS’ score is down from last year’s score of 5.1, but the second highest score the school received in the past five years behind 2009’s score of 5.1. The average grade 12 provincial exam mark was the highest in five years at 66.8 per cent and the percentage of exams failed was the lowest in five years at 10 per cent. The graduation rate is the second highest in five years, with 89.2 per cent of students graduating. The score of 4.6 is up from the average score in the last five years of 4.5 out of 10. Charles Hays’ score in the report is the lowest in the past five years and down from last year’s score of 3.8. The average provincial exam mark of 60.5 is tied for the second lowest in five years and the exam fail rate is the second highest in five years at 19.8 per cent. The graduation rate

for Charles Hays in 2010 is also the second lowest in the last five years at 93.5, down from 2009 when the school had a 100 per cent graduation rate. Charles Hays score is down from the average score of 3.5 in the past five years. Educators and politicians have long debated whether or not the Fraser Institute should be permitted access to education information for the purpose of ranking schools, but Fraser Institute director of school performance studies and co-author of the report Peter Cowley says it is important parents see what is happening in the schools over time. “By displaying individual school results for the past five years, the report card offers a ‘motion picture’ indicating whether a school has improved or declined over time. The idea is that every school is capable of improvement, and that everybody should have easy access to clear, up-todate information about the performance of the secondary schools in their province, territory, and local community,” he said. The three top schools in the report are all based in

Vancouver. Chase High School was the lowest ranked in the report. The report did not rank any schools in the Haida Gwaii School District.

The full report, including methodology used to determine the scores, can be found online at

Groups may need to return some profit to the City By Monica Lamb-Yorski The Northern View Community groups receiving community grants or in-kind donations from the City of Prince Rupert may be asked to return money to the City if their activities result in a profit. In the form of a motion at Tuesday evening’s council meeting, Councillor Kathy Bedard proposed the City adopt a policy to request a portion of up to 50 percent of the net profit or the amount of the grant for a project or event where entry fees are charged. Councillor Bedard said the City of Prince Rupert is approached regularly to assist in project or event funding at which entry fees are charged. “The City is responsible for the spending of tax dollars and therefore should adopt a policy to request a portion of the net profit or the amount of the grant,” her motion stated. The motion passed, with Councillors Bedard, Ashley and Nelson Kinney in favour, and Councillors Gordon-Payne and Gina Garon opposed. Mayor Jack Mussallem said he supported the policy, even though he didn’t have to cast a vote. Speaking to the motion, Councillor Ashley said, “we give money to groups for raising money and often for very good

causes, but if we are looking at way of finding money, then this gives us a chance to get some money back to help other groups at the starting point.” Opposing the motion, Councillor Sheila GordonPayne wondered if only a small profit is made, and some of that is paid to the City, how will that impact groups. “What does a community group do if it eats away at things so significantly that their efforts are not worth very much?” she asked. “If someone Martina Perry photo makes $4000 and has to return Alien Abduction was just one of the many rides that kept North Coast kids entertained and $2000, that’s a significant busy as West Coast Amusements brought the carnival to Prince Rupert last weekend. amount.” Mayor Jack Mussallem said groups may ask for further consideration as a payback could be daunting. people pay us to run the business and when there for people to consider when they make “It wouldn’t be the first time a policy we make a decision to support another group decisions,” Councillor Bedard added. was put in place and an appeal was made for outside of our mandate, we should ask them Mayor Jack Mussallem told council he reconsideration,” he suggested. to be accountable to us as well,” she said. thought everyone’s heart was in the right Councillor Bedard described “It’s like asking for a budget or report of place and it all comes down to how council the intent of the policy as a way to expenditures from any group that we fund. wants to support community groups and to address the struggle City Council has We’ve also had policies that we should be what extent. in trying to make community groups sitting on each board.

Message to Ferry Travellers From BC Ferry & Marine Workers’ Union

In recent surveys (Customer Satisfaction Annual Report) done by BC Ferry Services Inc. (BCFS),you, the travelling public, rated your customer satisfaction level at 91%. Those surveyed said they were “either satisfied or very satisfied with the “professionalism” of the on-board staff.” Customer satisfaction is on the rise and our members take great pride in their part of your travelling experience. One group of our membership that you may

not see as often during your voyage are our supervisors. They play a key role in providing the excellent, reliable and safe service you have come to expect. BCFS has begun the process of excluding a large number of bargaining unit supervisors, Senior Chief Engineers, Chief Engineers, Senior Chief Stewards, Chief Stewards and Masters (Captains). This may not mean much to you, the travelling public, but it means a great deal to us.

These members make sure the ferries run safely, on schedule and efficiently. As professionals, along with the crew members they supervise, they ensure that you have all the services you need while onboard to make it a safe and great experience. These supervisors hold the highest positions in our bargaining unit and have the greatest overall responsibilities. Out of the same report quoted above, ferry travellers believed that their safety was a priority

and they were satisfied that the “safety of the ferry operations continues to be strong.” Many of our members who are being excluded worry that their ability, in fact, their obligation to make safety related decisions, may be compromised under the new “management team” structure as an excluded employee. BCFMWU has worked with BCFS to improve safety for the traveling public and workers on our vessels, terminals and all other BCFS facilities

and, will continue to make safety our priority. Safety for all and the integrity of our bargaining unit are of the utmost importance to us. For these reasons BCFMWU will continue to oppose the needless exclusion of our members. Sincerely, Richard Goode President BC Ferry & Marine Workers’ Union

Entertainers set for cruise arrival BC Annual Dance

Continued from page 12

By Alan S. Hale The Northern View

With the first of the Cruise ships set to arrive this week, months of debate and planning to make the stop in Prince Rupert a much engaging cruise destination are about to be put to the test. Prince Rupert’s director of Recreation and Community Services, Rudy Kelly, has been heading up a cruise taskforce for the past few months that has been implementing ideas to make the Prince Rupert waterfront and the rest of the city more interesting to cruise ship passengers from the moment they set foot off the ship. One of those ideas was to increase the amount of buskers and street-performers out on the City’s streets when the tourists are around. The task forced put out a call for volunteers and now has 25 different people ready to go when the cruise ships come. The plan is to have about 20 people out performing this Friday. “The acts are mostly musical . . .We’ve got people strumming on guitars singing their own songs or other folky music, we’ve got a woodwind quartet that will be out there as well, there’s trombone players and a violinist, and the rest is mostly singing,” he said. Kelly says they don’t plan to stop at music though, and hope to branch out into street theatre by the second ship’s arrival. “It took us a while to get some of the old scripts from Rupert’s Story that they used to do at the museum, as well as the final one from The Mask. We’re looking into what from that we can turn into monologues,” said Kelly. The taskforce is also planning to do some kind of greeting down at the waterfront as the tourists leave their ship. “We were hoping to have someone do some kind of a greeting in a ringmaster persona that will let them know which way to go and what to expect,” said Kelly. In the Jazz Group 13 and up it was Prince Rupert’s E-Motion that came out on top with “Strut” where the ladies incorporated canes into their performance. Prince George’s Performer’s North came out in the winning position once again in the Modern Group category with “Endangered Species”. Terrace’s Contemporary Collective group got in on the winning action in the Small Group 12 and under category with “I Stand”. E-Motion took home yet another gold ranking in the Tap Group portion of the competition with their very cute performance of “Cotton Eye Joe”. In the Small Group 12 and under category, it was Prince Rupert Matrix group that came out in the winning spot with “Wow” where the young ladies were dressed up as cheerleaders. Performer’s North from Prince George took home the gold spot in the Demi-Character Ballet Group portion of the competition with “The Card Game”. The Performer’s North dancers did it again, taking home the top spot in Small Group 13 and up with their rendition of “Forget You” that was similar to the Cee Lo Green music video; it was absolutely hilarious.

BCGEU strike vote By Alan S. Hale The Northern View

Employees of a number of social services in Prince Rupert voted on Tuesday whether or not to go on strike.

of the union’s bargaining committee in charge of the provincewide negotiations. He says that just because there may be a strike does not necessarily mean that the women’s shelter will end up being unstaffed. “There is an ‘essential services’ designation for our sector. So what we do is sit down with each employer to determine what services are considered essential . . . In a smaller community, it is possible that the Transition House would be considered essential because there may be no other options,” says Cavaluzzo. According to the union the major issues in the negotiations has not been wage increases or benefit improvements because the province doesn’t have the money to spend on those things. What they have been pushing for is employment security; in other words, they want to prevent further cuts to positions and put in place disincentives to prevent employers from changing contract holders.

Strong Start coming to Lax Kxeen By Alan S. Hale The Northern View The school district announced last week that it will be opening another Strong Start Program for pre-schoolers and their parents, this time it will be a Lax Kxeen Elementary School. This means next year every elementary school in the city, along with Charles Hayes Secondary School will have a Strong Start Program. The program will set aside a classroom run by an early childhood educator for pre-school aged kids and their parents or guardians to come in for

a few hours a day and participate in educational activities together. The superintendant of the school district, Lynn Hauptman, says that the district is excited to have another program starting in Prince Rupert. “The province only approved 10 new programs this time round and we received one of them, we were very thrilled about that,” says Hauptman. The School district has received $52,000 from the province to fund the program, $20,000 of which will go towards supplies and renovations on the classroom, and the rest will be spent n operating costs such as a new early childhood educator.

The coach will have an initial in person meeting with the participant to help design physical activity goals and all additional contacts will be by telephone. It has proven to be a successful motivational technique.

What participants are saying: “Talking to a coach was effective in many ways: • It helped me to examine and clarify my approach to exercise parameters • It helped me to explore the reasons for my reluctance to exercise • It provided an incentive to exercise • And I wish to thank my coach, for her caring and supportive ways and her encouragement in these past months.” “This program has been absolutely wonderful for me. I now walk every day, often 30 - 60 minutes. I walk at lunch or after work, it relieves my stress, in fact the changes have been terrific and the program has been excellent for me. The coach has been very supportive and encouraging and I am going to miss her at the end of the six months. And, I am now down 14 lbs, it has all been terrific.” “It is a privilege to be part of the Active Choices program. It has helped me manage my diabetes. I got through Christmas although my aquacizes were cancelled. I do aquacizes three times per week and walk in between and it is amazing my glucose readings are now below 7 before that it was 8 and above.
