on the agreement, if the results of the pilot project are positive then this process will become the norm for moving cargo from other countries between the US and Canada, which Krusel says means any benefit to the port in terms of speed when compared to other west coast ports will be temporary. Regardless, this new means of moving cargo between the to countries is something Krusel said will only benefit international imports through Prince Rupert. “Absolutely this is something we have wanted to see. We’ve been working with the government in Ottawa with planning for a potential Beyond the Border initiative,” he said. “We were hopeful that Prince Rupert would be named one of the pilot project ports, so we’re very excited by this announcement and this opportunity.”

Dan Moskaluk, Senior Media Relations Officer with the RCMP, stressing that supporting the victims is a key concern for the RCMP. “Given the stigma and long lasting negative effects suffered by victims of such crimes, we have an important role to play

◆ THREE AREAS OF FOCUS

Port Edward mayor outlines his priorities for this term By Shaun Thomas The Northern View Following the installation of new council members, third-term mayor Dave MacDonald outlined what he saw as the three key priorities for the coming years. The first priority he outlined was the new school. Residents overwhelmingly passed a referendum allowing the District to borrow up to $2 million to construct a new school attached to the community hall, and the hope is to have it open in early 2013 – just months after the current Port Edward school will be closed by Prince Rupert School District and put under the management of Port Edward. Shifting from one generation to another,

MacDonald also said the municipality should look at ways to keep seniors in Port Edward. MacDonald said he knows several seniors who have had to leave the District and move to Prince Rupert or elsewhere for care, and said he would be very much in favour of pursuing the construction of seniors housing. The idea was brought forward before and land was offered up, but it didn’t proceed. The final priority outlined by mayor MacDonald was seeing the development of a proposed subdivision advancing in light of the developments that are taking place at the port and in the region.

◆ TELLING OUR HISTORY

Charles Hays, Prince Rupert featured in CBC documentary By Alan S. Hale The Northern View A documentary film crew from the CBC was in Prince Rupert last week filming information about the life of Charles Hays and his legacy in Prince Rupert. The crew is working for the show Doc Zone, which is planning a documentary featuring Canadian stories about the victims and survivors of the Titanic, to be ready in time for the anniversary of the famous ship’s sinking this April. Charles Hays will be one story out of many that will be looked at during the documentary that will draw stories from all over Canada and not just about people who died. Other mostly unknown stories

include the shunning received by male survivors of the tragedy by those who took to heart the saying “women and children first”. The segment on Charles Hays will focus to some extent about his life and how he eventually came to meet his death on board the notorious ship, but also about his affect on the community he left behind. The crew went around to see just about everything in Prince Rupert that is named after its most famous booster, of which there are a lot of things. But they also toured places such as the port because the segment will also be about Prince Rupert itself and how it stacks up when compared to ◆ $250,000 A Hays’ vision.

SCHEDULED FLIGHTS • CHARTERS • TOURS

“We’re trying to see the difference between what his vision was and what Prince Rupert became and what it’s becoming,” said director Jackie Corkery. The full documentary is scheduled to air on April 5, on CBC. Alan S> Hale photo

OPINION

MY VIEW…

Trade deal a plus for Prince Rupert The announcement of new regulations relating to the movement of cargo between the United States and Canada is not only welcome, but also makes quite the statement to shippers around the globe. There are going to be nationalists in the US and in Canada who undoubtedly complain about the Beyond the Border announcement moving closer to Canada and the US being inseparable from each other, which is a bit of a farce, but it makes sense. This is even more true in the case of cargo being moved by rail as is the case of Fairview Terminal - if the containers are scanned, put on a train and shipped nonstop to Chicago or the midwest, why would you need to scan them again when they enter the US. But more so I think this announcement sent a message to the world that the Canadian Government is not only aware of the importance of Prince Rupert as a gateway to the AsiaPacific, but that it is committed to it. And that can only be a good thing for Prince Rupert and the port authority moving forward. When you look at the two ports that were chosen to be part of this year-long pilot project, you have Canada’s largest port in Montreal for cargo coming to Eastern Canada and you have Prince Rupert for cargo from the Asian markets. It would have been pretty easy to choose Canada’s largest western gateway in Vancouver, which also provides significantly more employment than Fairview Terminal here in Prince Rupert, but the Government didn’t do that. Instead

they put the focus of the shipping world and the national media squarely on Prince Rupert. And while this practice may become the norm after the pilot project ends in 2013, this is just another potential marketing tool for Fairview Terminal, which can already

boast quick and efficient service to the mid-western United States. For those who wondered to what extent Prince Rupert was on the national radar in terms of the import/export business, this speaks volumes.

I’m sorry Mr. Corrigan, but I won’t get fooled again I know Mike Corrigan, and I really do wish him well. But as I see it he’s got a hell of a challenge on his hands. David Hahn leaves BC Ferries on December 31 with his $315,000 annual Christmas present from the BC taxpayer, and Corrigan, one of the platoon of vicepresidents with whom Hahn surrounded himself, will step into his shoes. And now we are promised a period of change – and increased austerity, though the only austerity we’ve so far seen from BC Ferries has been in the service offered to customers. The first moves have been limiting Corrigan’s compensation to $564,000, not replacing him as chief operating officer for an apparent savings of $600,000, and the elimination of the long-term bonus program for an annual savings of $600,000 annually (though at a short-term cost of about $800,000). That sounds good for political optics. But let’s not shower praise upon BC Ferries. Most changes to date have been made because the province gave the board of directors no choice in the matter. And

stopped riding the ferries. let’s not forget that in 2003 All of this came with a this same board of directors Talking tourism delightful new culture of managed to hire David Hahn corporate arrogance.

I’m not sure that’s necessary, though it seems strange that the same was done to Tourism BC for no discernible reason. At the same time BC Ferries is far more badly broken than it was when the Campbell government set out to fix it. The provincial government and the board of directors remain unchanged, and Hahn’s #2 is now in charge. I choose to believe that Mike Corrigan can clean up his inherited mess. I’m optimistic, sure – but not as optimistic as I might have been if you’d taken over five years ago. Because I’m still not seeing any long-term vision, and from where I’m standing it seems to be a case of, “meet the new boss, same as the old boss.” And to carry my reference to The Who a little farther, Mr. Corrigan, I won’t get fooled again.

I was recently in the Comox Valley and it is certainly nice but I have to say that Prince Rupert is fantastic in that it is such a great “walking” city. There are endless strip malls and big box stores with even bigger parking lots that require the use of a vehicle around Courtenay. I love Prince Rupert for it’s small blessings.

Letters to the Editor Time to restore recycling hours Editor: A Merry Christmas to all in Prince Rupert and sincere thanks to all of our dedicated recyclers who continue to recycle on Saturdays, despite the inconvenience and hectic situation caused by the shorter hours. Mainland Recycling is in a very positive position due to increased volumes and better prices for material and there is no valid reason for these short hours to continue. The short hours on Saturdays were set up on October 2, 2010, and since then I have brought up a request to return to longer hours at every meeting of the MSWAC Committee and often

at the Regional District board meetings as well. Thank you to everyone who has supported me in these efforts. Congratulations to the newly elected council, I would hope that they will press for better service to the public when it comes to recycling. Our City Council is quite involved in regional affairs and it is the taxpayers of Prince Rupert who fund a large portion of Regional District operations. Happy New Year to all! Jean Martin Prince Rupert

CHRISTMAS FUNDRAISER…

BC Ferries board names new CEO at a lesser salary than Hahn By Tom Fletcher Black Press BC Ferries’ board of directors has appointed senior executive Michael Corrigan to replace outgoing CEO David Hahn, who is leaving at the end of the year. Corrigan’s salary will be $563,000, if he reaches all the performance and safety bonus targets in his contract. Along with three other senior executives, Corrigan is being paid a lump sum of $200,000 to compensate for the cancellation of BC Ferries’ long-term bonus program. BC Ferries board chair Donald Hayes said Corrigan’s total compensation will be about 60 per cent of that paid to Hahn, who announced his early retirement in September as part of a costcutting program at the Crown corporation. Hahn’s

compensation topped $1 million in the last two years, making him the highest-paid public servant in B.C. Hayes said Corrigan’s former position of chief operating officer is being eliminated, saving BC Ferries about $600,000 a year. Corrigan joined BC Ferries in 2003 as vice president for business development, where he was responsible for new vessel construction and terminal upgrades. Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom said Corrigan’s new salary is within the range of legislation passed by the government this spring amid controversy over Hahn’s salary. Speaking to reporters in Vancouver Tuesday, Lekstrom said he expects there will still be complaints about the pay, which is more than the new CEO of BC Hydro makes. But the board makes the decision, and legislation passed in 2003 to take the political interference out of BC Ferries operation prevents cabinet ministers from getting involved. Lekstrom said he is expecting B.C. Ferry Commissioner Gord Macatee’s report on ferry rates to be released soon. Macatee is reviewing the mandate imposed in 2003 to move towards a user-pay ferry system and not allow the profitable large runs to subsidize the smaller routes. “The biggest question I get is the affordability issue, and Mr. Corrigan recognizes that, and he is going to do, in the discussion I had with him, everything he can to work collaboratively and ensure we have an affordable system,” Lekstrom said.

◆ THE BULLIES WHO TRIED TO STEAL CHRISTMAS

Dance Academy performs By Martina Perry The Northern View The Lester Centre of the Arts was nearly full last Saturday, December 10, when the Dance Academy of Prince Rupert presented “The Bullies Who Tried to Steal Christmas”, the school’s holiday performance. The Bullies Who Tried to Steal Christmas consisted of familiar, classic holiday characters such as Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman, who in this presentation were bullied some Naughty Swans. The script was by Nancy Paul, who played Mrs. Claus throughout the performance. The presentation started off by telling the story of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, who was being bullied by Santa Claus’ other reindeer. To help cheer Rudolph up, over 30 of his young female dancing friends performed “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” choreographed by Teresa Mackereth, as well as fourteen of his young male friends who performed “Baby Please Come Home” choreographed by Jennifer Klooper. Klooper also choreographed the next number, “Loser Like Me”, that had female dancers and singers of all age performing on stage together. Before the Naughty Swans bullied Frosty, over 30 young female performers helped Frosty sing and

dance to the popular Christmas song “Frosty the Snowman”. Shannon Vallee choreographed this number. Ballet student Hannah Douglas, who was one of the older female students of the Academy, performed an impressive ballet Swan Solo next, which was choreographed by Darlene Williams. The next 25 students perform “Believe”, which was choreographed by Meghan MacRae. MacRae also choreographed the hip-hop student’s routine, “Suga Plum Fairiez” to a hip-hop styled Christmas classic, “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy”, but before the 20 male and female students took the stage, Mrs. Claus, or Nancy Paul sang solo to “Old Toy Trains”. “Naughty Swans and Nice Swans” choreographed by Shannon Vallee, wrapped the holiday presentation up with a good life-lesson, that nice people will always prevail over bullies. This number included five naughty and five nice Swans, played by more experience, older female dance students. Vallee choreographed this number, which incorporated elegant ballet moves. In the final number of the performance, “Holly Jolly Christmas” which was choreographed by Meghan MacRae, over 30 dancers and singers took the stage, with a special appearance from Santa Claus.

Local acts play to launch Rupert Rocks By Martina Perry The Northern View During the evening of Saturday, December 10, Garden Records and a full house of people at The Underground celebrated the release of Rupert Rocks!, the local record label’s second all-local musician compilation album. “The release party exceeded my expectations,” said Tom Lehar from Garden Records and the Summit Sound Lounge Recording Studio. “The bands did a fabulous job performing.” At the release party eight of the 11 artists and bands featured on the newly released CD performed their original pieces from the album to a large crowd of music-lovers

at The Underground. Men Who Listen started off the performances with “Prince Rumour”, the groups’ original song that can be heard on the album. The solo artists then pumped up the audience, with Lance Clark performing “Rockin’ Into Rupert Town” and Aaron Viktil singing “End of the Rainbow”. More bands performed next, such as trio Latex Nightmare, who performed their song “Casino” and Triple Bypass, who played “Feels Like Home” the only track featured on the album that was not recorded in the Summit Sound Lounge Recording Studio. The Grifters performed their original “Not Adapting Well”, before Kate Lines from Garden Records’ and Summit Sound Lounge performed her solo song

It divides up into $233,000 a year and then, from there with 10,000 Gitxsan then you have $23 a person per year. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all it is. Unbelievable,â&#x20AC;? said Stephens. However, Derek says he stands by the decision and did consult others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a working relationship with Enbridge over the last few years,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The chiefs signed an agreement with Enbridge in 2009...We have to find ways to bring development opportunities and investors into our area so that the younger families can look after themselves.â&#x20AC;? The signing prompted protests outside of the Gitxsan Treaty Office, and Skeena Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen says he supports those actions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very important to me to stand shoulder to shoulder with the hereditary chiefs and the Nation, virtually all of whom clearly do not support the false promises of environmental protection and economic development that Enbridge is selling to northerners,â&#x20AC;? Cullen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enbridge is obviously a company that will throw around money to push this pipeline through. This deal almost tore a community apart...Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deplorable. Clearly this kind of conquer and divide approach is not going to work.â&#x20AC;?

Salvation Army In December Christmas 2011 - A Season of Grace Prince Rupert - Doing the most good!

150,000 140,000

Merry Christmas Friends,

Throughout the year, but especially in this season, we are mindful of the many partners we have in our wonderful community….partnerships with Service Clubs, partnerships with local businesses….partnerships with kind and caring individuals. Everything we are able to do to assist others in our community we can do only because of your help. This year our partnerships have accomplished the following:

Tom Macdonald representing I.L.U.W. Local 505 presenting a cheque in the amount of $5,00 to Captain Gary Sheils of the Salvation Army.

100,000

Food Bank – more than 3,250 families were helped with emergency food assistance at a cost of $98,146.

90,000

Thrift Store – more than 1700 people were supplied with free clothing and housewares with a value of $59,500. Back to School – over 325 backpacks were given to children returning to school. Emergency Shelter – more than 250 people were assisted with shelter beds and meals.

Kettle Volunteers Needed Contact Herb Pond Home: (250) 624-9443 or Cell: (250) 622-4174

120,000

Sally Ann’s Bistro – over 48,000 meals were served at a cost of $85,485. That’s a lot of sandwiches, bowls of soup and pancakes.

Christmas Hampers 2010 – 886 families (1532 adults and 1101 children) were given hampers consisting of Food gift cards and toys at a cost of some $90,000.

Royal Bank employees showcase their Angel Tree. Stop by and pick your angel today.

130,000

This year the need continues to be great and we are expecting to serve 925 families through our Christmas Hamper program and we believe that demand for services in our Food Bank and Soup Kitchen will continue at current levels. So once again we are asking for your help in order that hopes will be realized and needs met. Someone once said that the worth of any community is marked by the way it looks after and cares for those in need (for whatever reason). Truly Prince Rupert has proven itself to be a community that cares…a community that has a heart as big and as beautiful as the nature the surrounds us. Thank you for all you do to help others…..we are privileged to be in partnership with you. Have a blessed and joy Àlled Christmas and may you enjoy the fullness of our Lord’s grace……not only during this season but always.

He eventually became a Foreman and then was promoted to Manager. At that time there wasn’t much work on the waterfront so Jack would take off on Fridays to supplement his income as a part-time commercial Àsherman and return to work on Monday mornings.
