◆ CHUM SALMON MANAGEMENT

DFO under fire for inadequate enforcement By Alan S. Hale The Northern View

“We Don’t Sell - We Help you Buy” 700 Third Ave W, PRINCE RUPERT,

250-624-5060

Three different BC salmon conservation groups say that north coast fishermen have thrown back 1.37 million pounds of Chum Salmon – enough to fill 40 transport trucks while rushing to catch as many Pink Salmon as they can within the 16-hour window. Regulations say that Chum Salmon have to be thrown back as quickly as possible, but the groups allege fishermen who are preoccupied with the Pink Salmon are leaving the Chum out of the water for too long before being thrown back. The result, say the conservationists, is that about half of the fish do not survive afterwards long enough to spawn, making the problem of depleting Chum stocks even worse. The Watershed Watch Salmon Society, Raincoast Conservation Foundation and SkeenaWild Conservation Trust are not

putting most of the blame on the fishermen who are breaking the rules, but instead are pointing the finger at the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. “The way they have the system set up now, it’s a race for fish. Instead of slowing things down by going to a quota fishery ...They’re having these one day openings where you have to fish as much as possible in that time,” said Greg Knox executive director of SkeenaWild Conservation Trust. Because of the low stocks of Chum in the Skeena and Nass watersheds, fishermen are required to throw back the Chum that get caught in their nets while fishing for fish like Pink Salmon. The conservation groups are arguing that the 16-hour time limit system is creating conditions where fisherman are more concerned with getting Pink Salmon on their boats so that they can make a living than getting Chum Salmon off them like they are required to.

Not only do they believe that the DFO is triggering this problem, they also believe that it is doing a poor job of stopping it. According to Knox, DFO’s enforcement has been inadequate, or at least ineffectual, at stopping fishermen from violating the rules. “They often don’t have officers out there monitoring the fisheries, and when they do find infractions they don’t hold fishermen accountable; They don’t make them go back to the docks, don’t give out many fines. They’re not very strict on enforcing the rules,” says Knox. The chief of resource management for DFO for the North Coast, Dale Gueret, outright refutes Knox’s characterization of DFO’s enforcement. He says that DFO does acknowledge that there is a real problem with a minority of fishermen who are not following the rules, and says they are taking what steps they can to deal with the situation.

◆ PORT JURISDICTION

City working on a plan for waterfront

SUNDAY SAILING…

By Monica Lamb-Yorski The Northern View Prince Rupert City Council is asking the Prince Rupert Port Authority to rigorously consult the community over its Land Use Management Plan, while at the same time hopes to create a waterfront plan of its own. During Monday evening’s regular council meeting, City Planner Zeno Krekic said it is important that the Port allow the same voices that helped form and shape the City’s Quality of Life Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw be heard when finalizing a Land Use Management Plan. “The Port’s Land Use Management Plan recognizes the Quality of Life principles but remains silent on policies, specifically as relating to Section 2 (Respecting and Enjoying the Environment). In other words the desire the community expressed in the OCP for access to the waterfront is guarded in the Port Land Use Management Plan with phrases such as ‘that does not negatively affect Port marine safety’ and ‘to the extent this is feasible’,” Krekic told council. It is true that the Zoning Bylaw and the Port’s industrial use plans are congruent, he continued, but the community expressed in the OCP it wanted more, not less, access to the water. Because port lands fall under federal jurisdiction, provincial and municipal land use regulations do not apply to them. “ O C P ,

The 824 passenger Oceania Regatta was in Prince Rupert for its only stop on the schedule, a rare Sunday docking at Northland Terminal. Zoning or Development Permit Area regulations have been held by the courts to be inapplicable to particular lands purely because the federal government owns it, including lands occupied by tenants and not necessarily used for any federal purposes,” Krekic explained. In other words, if there’s a conflict between the City’s OCP and land use plan for the waterfront, and that of the Port’s, the Port takes precedent. On April 11, 2011, the Port made a power point presentation, bringing the City up to date on its plans, and followed up by providing a draft of the plan to the City on May 17. The draft plan was also shared with the public on the Port’s website on June 1, inviting comments, and at a public meeting on June 15. According to Councillor Joy Thorkelson, council’s own discussion of a waterfront plan was put on hold about a year ago. On Monday evening she suggested it was time to resume the discussion. “I don’t want to start a fight with the Port, but certainly we need to have similar ideas as to how our waterfront is going to be used. We should be sitting down and talking both with our citizens and the Port about what we want to happen at the waterfront,” she said. Councillor Kathy Bedard said the City has to look to the future. “I think our motion states that we are encouraging the Port. The Port is a good corporate citizen and we’re asking them to go to the community to listen to individuals, so not necessarily do questions have to come up from this table, but individuals

can go directly to the Port and say access to the waterfront and to those beaches is important,” Bedard said. Councillor Sheila Gordon-Payne, while in favour of Krekic’s motion, said even if the City develops a waterfront plan it would be limited. “There are very few water parcels that are ours, and there’s not a lot of land that is ours, so it’s the same type of influencing process that we’d be doing right now anyway as I see it. I would ask that council participate as community stakeholders,” Gordon-Payne said. In the end however, Thorkelson made an additional motion, tasking staff with facilitating discussions toward a waterfront plan. “I’m not in favour of us leaving it in the hands of the Port. I think we need a solid idea of how we want the waterfront developed as a council so that we have a basis to have discussions with the Port,” she said. Gordon-Payne said her comments were from a practicality perspective. “We are finished meetings for the summer. We have maybe one or two in September and will have an election in November. I’m not sure when practically speaking we’ll have a completed waterfront plan and would not expect the Port and the Port stakeholders will wait until the City’s ready with a finished product. I think we want to have a say, and that we need to take every opportunity we have, and this is a good start for me,” she said. At the end of the discussion, however, Thorkelson’s motion for the City to develop its own plan was passed unanimously.

◆ UNANIMOUS VOTES

SQCRD reps vote for pay raise, but no longer get benefits By Alan S. Hale The Northern View At the August meeting of the Skeena Queen Charlotte Regional District, all board members voted in favour of giving themselves a regular pay raise while also unanimously voting to cancel their own health care benefits. SQCRD staff provided the board with a breakdown of the average pay and expenses being paid to the board members of other rural regional districts. 10 different regional districts such as Peace River, East Kootenay and Strathcona were chosen for comparison. The average pay to a board member from these regional districts was about $16,000 in 2010, well above the $13,000 average pay for SQCRD’s board members. In the SQCRD, only board members living on Haida Gwaii or Dodge Cove claimed expenses because of the travel required to come to the mainland for board meetings or other events. Mainland-based members like Jack Mussallem claimed no expenses in 2010. For those who

did claim expenses the average was about $3,300, less than the average for other regional districts, which was $4,300. The pay for board members has fallen behind that of other regional districts because the board doesn’t often give itself raises. The last time all members of the board were given a raise was in April 2006. It was because of this that board members felt that their constituents would understand if they gave themselves a raise based on the risen rate of inflation. “I think in this day-and-age people are understanding of inflationary increases, and if there could be an adjustment done once a year, which is done by a lot of other regional districts, I think the public that we represent be understanding of that,” said board member Jack Mussallem to his colleagues. The board members agreed with Mussallem’s assessment and voted in favour of adjusting their pay each year based on the inflation rate found in the BC Consumer Price Index. Even with this increase the SQCRD’s pay remains below average when compared to the other regional districts.

After voting in favour of the raise, the board voted to get rid of their own basic health care benefits that up until that point were paid for them by the regional district. Mussallem who introduced the motion for a raise, also introduced it. “I don’t think its acceptable that after you become elected that the regional district pays for a medical plan, I think its up to the individual to pay that. I don’t think the public that we represent will be accepting of that. If people think we should have an increase to their stipend, lets do that. But to have a medical plan that’s been Week of August 24 paid for, to me that seems Not for Navigational Purposes like an entitlement,” said Mussallem.

◆ CHUM DEBATE

DFO discuss possible solutions Continued from page 1 Gueret says that while local DFO officers are trying to deal with the Chum problem, conservation groups often set a very high bar for enforcement that they say must be met, even if its unrealistic. The most prominent solution to the Chum problem being proposed by the conservation groups is simple: DFO needs to move the Pink Salmon fishery to a set quota system, where fishermen will have a longer time to catch a set amount of fish and will have more time to follow regulations. Gueret says that a quota system is “a potential option,” but an option fraught with potential problems. To put in place a quota system they would need a fairly accurate idea how many fish could be expected to return to spawn in a given year. To know

this, they would need to have a way of accurately counting fish that return, like a test fishery, which they don’t have outside the Skeena. But along the coast there are hundreds of inlets where Salmon go to spawn, results from one area may not be accurate in another like in a river. These Call logistical problems are why the DFO has gone with the time limit instead, where they can G STIN let people fish without I L risking a damaging NEW depletion in the stocks.

of Aboriginal Ministries Council and Circle. The people gathering at the weekend-long event will be the voice of the Aboriginal community when it comes to matters of spirituality and the ministry. The gatherings began after the church apologized for its role in the residential school system in 1998. Since then, the United Church of Canada says it’s committed to “a journey of repentance” for the harm caused by the schools to Aboriginal children and their families. Previously the church had apologized in 1986, but made no direct reference to residential schools. “25 years ago the then-moderator expressed the hope of the United Church by saying ‘May we walk together in the spirit of Christ, so that our peoples may be blessed and all God’s creations healed’. To walk together in the spirit of Christ means to honour as much spiritual diversity as we see demonstrated in the natural world in terms of other ways of understanding diversity,” commented Tindal. “This is a healthy ecology, God’s ecology, where each one functions on behalf of the whole, and in return is sustained by the whole.”

the AM band to the FM dial in the beginning of the year, many people living in Prince Rupert have wondered when this change will actually occur. Earlier this week, the Prince Rupert Northern View spoke with Astral Radio to figure out when CHTK will be heard on its new FM frequency of 99.1. “The transmitter has to be built, then install it, and then there has to be a period of testing,” said Janine Kraft, who is the Radio Branch Director at Astral Radio and Television, adding that there was also another station getting an FM flip, and they were higher on the list of priorities than Rupert. According to Kraft, the new transmitter will be installed in September with testing going on for 30 days after installation. Kraft said that Astral Media has a tentative date of October 21, 2011. CHTK will still be operating on the AM station for about three months after the switch to FM, when it can be heard on both the AM and FM frequency during this time. Kraft explained that this will be done to allow a smoother transition for people, as well as to ensure that in case of any interferences with the new frequency it can be easily switched back to AM while making the changes.

OPINION

MY VIEW…

Ferry costs, nothing else, is to blame... I wonder what the view is like from David Hahn’s office in Victoria, because he’s certainly not seeing things the same way the people who use the ferry system he presides over are. Gas prices and the low US dollar are to blame for a drop in the number of people choosing to take the ferry this summer? Really, Mr. Hahn, you’ve got to be kidding me. I have a stock photo from 2008 that shows the price at the Chevron across the street selling regular unleaded for $1.459 - more than 15 cents per litre more than what’s been charged this summer. So logic would dictate the numbers in 2008 were lower than they are this year, but that’s not the case among the various routes is it? Nope. Let’s try again. Right now the dollar is above par, but the fact is the dollar has been at, near or above par for the past several years. In April 2010 the dollar was above par, and it was above par back in February of 2008 as well. So since this is something that has been going on for some time now and people are well aware of it, I don’t think that argument holds much water either. I don’t live on the Lower Mainland so I can’t overly speak of what’s happening on those major routes, but my guess is it’s the same thing happening on the North Coast but to a lesser extent. And that is that BC Ferries rates have gone up to the extent that the company has almost priced itself out of contention as a holiday option. On the Inside Passage, it would cost a family of four with kids over 12 $1,130 to take their car from Port Hardy to Prince Rupert. If they had an oversize vehicle, like a camper

or big truck, that price would jump to $1,420. For the same family to go to Haida Gwaii and back, it would cost $622 with the car and $838 with a camper. By comparison, that same family of four could fly from Vancouver to Las Vegas for $802 (via flightcentre and departing on August 19). People are going to make their choice of vacation based not only on the experience they want, but also the cost of the

trip. By the time you factor in gas to/from Prince Rupert, accommodations along the way, food and more, BC Ferries isn’t looking that great. And every time you and the board propose a fee hike it looks less and less attractive. So blame the US dollar or blame the cost of fuel if you have to put on a good face for the media and the public. But the only people to blame for the drop are those working for BC Ferries who keep raising the rates.

Tourism can play a role to sustain a healthy community The value and future of tourism, as part of this community, is paramount to us at Tourism Prince Rupert. Guided tourism growth can be extremely meaningful for the community. Uncontrolled growth could be less beneficial. We all know the stories of worst-case scenarios, such as cruise ports with “tourist go home” signs in the windows. I can see how attitudes like that develop – unplanned growth in any industry can lead a community down paths it shouldn’t necessarily have taken. Yet it saddens me to think that the people who live in those places could have allowed that to happen. In Prince Rupert, the only reason that we work as a community to shape and develop tourism is to build a stronger community. I’ve said it before - we’re not going to save the world with tourism. But it offers us many things. In just the three months of our Prince Rupert Visitor Study in 2007, we know that tourism brought us $52 million

I for one have not that we have, as a community, completely

embraced tourism. One still hears too many dismissive comments, mostly from people who don’t know enough about what the industry can mean for us. Learning more, and becoming involved, is nearly always rewarding – and it’s easy to do. It has taken hundreds of volunteers to stage the Northern BC Winter Games, the Torch Celebration, All-Native, and so on, and if contributing a few hours to these celebrations isn’t an example of many people collectively working in small ways to create a benefit to the community, while at the same time putting our best foot forward for visitors, then I don’t know what is. Like many people who did not grow up here, I recognize on a daily basis why Prince Rupert is important to me. Set against any challenges created by a small or isolated community, this is a place where people still care. I think that tourism will help us prosper as a community while leaving this core value undamaged.

My mom always preferred “see you later” to “goodbye” and I’m the same way. Until next time, thank you Prince Rupert. May your future be bright. I’ll miss you.

I’ve always described Prince Rupert as our home town. Matthew, my husband, is from Winnipeg. Our eldest daughter Anna was born there. I am from Nelson, where our daughters Gisele and Rachael and our son Nathan were born. We’ve also lived in Vanderhoof and Castlegar, but when we moved to Prince Rupert in November of 1995, it soon became our home town. Not mine, not Matthew’s, but ours. We carved ourselves a future and before we knew it, Prince Rupert had become the place we’d lived the longest. That was until the Ministry of Forests office closed here last summer and Matthew took a position with the Ministry of Environment in Williams Lake. I stayed behind with three boys, to let Nathan graduate and gladly postponed our departure. Each time Matthew came back for a visit, he’d list the things I was going to miss - the ocean, the green, the air and the drinking water. The year has flown by and we are down to the crunch. We leave on Saturday, and as I pack boxes, paint the house, and add to the list of things to remember to do, it feels surreal. We’re leaving the place where the last of our six children, Nicholas and Benjamin, were born, and where all of our children have grown up. It is here we never tired of seeing eagles, whales, fantastic sunsets, feasting on berries within metres of our house, and receiving donations of seafood or invites to explore the area by boat. Only in Prince Rupert could I have run into Jimmy Pattison in his grocery store, boldly introduced myself, and ended up on his yacht an hour later for a discussion about Prince Rupert’s future. In Prince Rupert I have learned to appreciate weather in all its forms, grown to love rubber boots and appreciate the washing machine as an excellent cleaner of soccer shoes. Every family has its stories. One of ours is the time when Benjamin, then five, looked out from Mariner’s Park at the Norwegian Star arriving for the first time and said with wide eyes, “When I grow up, I want to be a passenger”. As I pack, I carefully wrap up our most recent

family photograph, taken on Christmas Day 2010. In it our children are standing on a log out at Ridley Island, always one of our favourite haunts. It’s such a great photo because the backdrop is breathtaking. We’ll be proud to hang it in our new home. Aside from a great family life here, over the last decade I’ve had the privilege of working for two newspapers, the Daily News off and on from 2001 to 2010, when it closed, and the Northern View this last year. T h o s e gigs, along with working part-time at the Prince Rupert City and Regional Archives since 2004, have helped me learn about this region This three bedroom home could make for - its history, a good investment as a rental property politics, and or as an affordable home for a Àrst time buyer or someone looking to downsize. people.

Apartments being fixed By Shaun Thomas The Northern View While a class action lawsuit between those who purchased property in the Roosevelt Heights Apartments and the group that sold it to them continues, the strata voted last week to pay over $30,000 each to redo the exterior of the building to fix leaking walls. The apartments were converted into strata condos in 2006/2007 and 45 were sold for approximately $70,000 apiece as “high quality real estate projects that are well researched and easy to own” by a now-dissolved corporation, Seal Cove Properties Ltd., then allegedly indirectly owned and controlled by realestate developer Ozzie Jurock and partners David Barnes and Ralph Case, who are also principals in AMG Investments Ltd. According to the strata owners, just a month after the purchases were made, a budget was presented by AMG Investments showing nothing more than normal repair costs. After a year that saw the revenue projections for the condos fall short and repairs pile-up, a second AGM was held where the property management company said the building envelope needed major repairs to prevent significant losses due to water damage. “We made our purchase based on the engineers report available to us. I read it went through it said okay it seems

◆ SEASON CONTINUES

Drag racers take to the track for weekend action in Houston By Ed Evans The Northern View The weekend was predicted to be overcast on Saturday and Sunday for the 15th Annual Houston Drags. On the trip up from Rupert Friday, it rained all the way to Smithers, after that we didn’t see any rain in the daytime for the rest of the weekend. The Friday races and burnout contest clicked off with no problems, with Harley Bell winning the Burnout Contest with his shop truck. I think that the flashing lights won it for him though. Saturday’s action started off a little slower with a slick track. The cars ran time trials as it was too slick yet for the fast feature cars. After the time trials, the West Coast Door Slammers made their first appearance. The cars put on quite a show, doing long, loud, smoky burnout’s, some of them a

full 1/8 mile in length. But it was hard for them to get traction past the 60 foot mark. Wade Sjostrom in his 1957 Chevy Bel-air seemed to have it figured out first and after tuning out 300 horsepower, he ran a blistering pass, but was running on the 1/8 mile timer not the ¼ mile timer. It was still a quick pass of 4.88 seconds in the 1/8th mile. The other cars like Reg Deforest and his 1923 blown altered also seemed to find traction later in the day, but he did spin through most of the ¼ mile track. However it did rain hard Sunday morning and there were concerns that the Sunday race might be cancelled. But it was decided to wait until 10 am to make the call. At 9:30 the skies cleared up and even though it was overcast, the full slate of racing was run. The West

end-of-the-season

Coast Door Slammers had to call it a weekend though as the rain took off whatever rubber that there was for a sticky track. Next up: Is this weekend as the final race of the 2011 season in Terrace. The Bike/sled drag race is called Bike Wars. So if you have a bike or a track ready sled this is your opportunity to make some runs down the track for bragging rights. There will be all of the other exciting class racing, as racers compete for the year long points series.

◆ PROVINCIAL COMPETITION

Seniors strike gold By Shaun Thomas The Northern View The West Kootenays hosted the 2011 BC Senior Games from August 1620, an event that was spread over three communities, and North Coast athletes certainly found success. Ray Leonard was a multi-time gold medalist on the track, winning a gold in the 10 kilometre road race and a gold in the 5,000 metres for men 60 to 64. A pair of three Prince Rupert archers brought home six medals, including four gold. Fred Hutchings won gold in the

ARC 3D shoot and the ARC target shoot for men 55 to 59 and Bob Bennett won gold in both those events for men 65 to 69.
