Backlash against a proposed wood pellet terminal on Prince Rupert’s waterfront was centre stage at this week’s city council meeting. What started as a couple of concerned residents from the neighbourhood nearest to the proposed site has grown into a fullscale lobbying effort, with opponents of the facility coming to council armed with a slideshow presentation and a petition signed by other residents. Making their case to the newly-elected city council was one of the original three residents who raised the issue in September, Francis Kavalac, and another long-time neighbourhood resident, Ken Shaw. Kavalac presented council a petition that had been circulated around her neighbourhood. The 91 residents who signed it are concerned that dust from the terminal as well as increased train activity

will negatively affect their health and quality of life in a neighbourhood that already experiences plenty of noise from the rail yard currently used by CN - a rail yard that would need to be expanded for the terminal. “The objective of this petition is to have Pinnacle Renewable Energy Group reconsider their location for the pellet terminal,” said Kavalac to council “The additional pellet terminal and trains would be operating within minutes of the homes of the people of Prince Rupert. This business will devalue our real estate and make selling it impossible. We want this business to go to an industrial site, like Ridley Island.” The petition has also been sent to the Canada Transport Agency, the Canadian Human Right Commission, the Prince Rupert Port Authority, MP Nathan Cullen, Health Canada and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency. Kavalac claimed in front of council that the Prince Rupert Port Authority’s manager of Public Affairs, Maynard Angus, told

her that there were many other sites under consideration for the pellet terminal and not just the waterfront site at Westview Terminal. The Port Authority denies that they told her any such thing. In a e-mail Angus sent to members of the council the day after the meeting, he says that he told Kavalac that the pellet facility being proposed is too small to be set up on Ridley Island when she asked him why it wasn’t being planned there. This conversation, according to the e-mail, took place on October 31 after the port authority found out about Kavalac’s petition. Angus believes she misunderstood what he told her. “I talked to Francis this morning (Tuesday) and informed her she has misunderstood our conversation and explained that she will have ample time to share her comments and ask her questions at the community consultation stage should the project proceed to the environmental assessment stage,” reads Angus’ e-mail.

Ridley employee speaks out on wood dust residents get involved in the process. Port Authority representative Michael Gurney said that it was regrettable that residents had decided to go to city council where neither the Port Authority or the company had no opportunity to respond. Pinnacle’s president, Leroy Reitsma, says that the Emergency Contact Numbers assessment is the best time to Local Contact Number 911 address public concerns.

Make it your resolution that your family will be prepared. The residents are arguing that Prince Rupert needs to decide exactly what its plans for the waterfront are. Adding another industrial project there would risk allowing the city’s waterfront NW Region to turn into another industrial area. Ken Shaw pointed out that the City’s own Official Community Plan intends for the waterfront is for it to provide “a sustainable mix of commercial use, some light Winter 2012 Courses industry and other uses that open the waterfront to greater public access”.

RTI employee Bill Flaten shows Prince Rupert city council the mask workers have to wear to protect themselves from wood dust. until the environmental assessment has begun. But he did say that the technology has been used in a pellet terminal in North Vancouver owned by Kinder Morgan. So the Prince Rupert Northern View asked David Knee, the president of the Norgate Park Community Association that represents the residents of the neighbourhood close to the Kinder Morgan terminal whether it was effective or not. Knee points out that the Kinder Morgan terminal has not been used for wood pellets for years, but says that the design does cut down drastically on the amount of dust no matter what is actually being loaded into a ship. “They’re actually quite good. They’ve actually covered most of their operation with sheds and things and they have quite a good dust collection system,” said Knee. The good news for Prince Rupert is that the rain tends to cut down on the dust as well. City council’s reaction to the presentation was sympathetic but reserved. Council encouraged presenters to make their case during the Environmental Assessment whenever it begins. After they were over, council also discussed the possibility of talking to CN about the existing noise problems experienced by the neighbourhood and about the possibility of going forward with a waterfront plan, which the presenters pointed out is lacking.

the waterfront,” Ken Shaw told the council. Shaw and Kavalac aren’t the only ones who think a pellet terminal would preclude the use of the waterfront as a public area. Bill Flaten is an employee of Ridley Terminals – although he was quick to point out that he does not speak for them. He says that when the pellet storage terminal (which is used by Pinnacle) was built on Ridley Island in 2007 workers were told that the dust would very minimal. When there turned out to be lots of dust, workers were told they would only need to wear simple dust masks to protect themselves while working until the problem was solved. Flaten says that workers began to complain of shortness of breath and feeling stuffed up from the dust and eventually began to refuse to work in the facility. “I myself had to leave the site twice due to respiratory problems,” says Flaten The Prince Rupert Northern View asked Ridley Terminals to confirm Flaten’s story, but they have not responded. The solution was to give workers a fully enclosed helmet with a hose for attaching to a dedicated air supply. Flaten brought one of these helmets into city hall to show the council to illustrate is point on how harmful the dust is; which he describes as a being so fine it takes two days to wash it off equipment. “You’re going to get sunny days in Prince Rupert when people want to walk along that waterfront and you’re going to have dust being blown inland...That dust is going to be all over the facility and the tracks so anyone walking is going to disturb it,” said Flaten. Pinnacle Renewable Energy Group has maintained that technology such as the slow moving, covered conveyers it plans to use in the small terminal will make it almost dustless and very quiet. The company’s president, Leroy Reitsma didn’t want to discuss the specifics of the design

Port Edward paying to help promote cannery By Shaun Thomas The Northern View The District of Port Edward will be spending $5,200 to help better promote North Pacific Cannery as part of a larger marketing plan by the Port Edward Historical Society. The society is applying for a $15,000 grant from the Coast Sustainability Trust, which when coupled with a $9,800 grant from BC Tourism and the money from the District provides $30,000 to add more billboard signs and upgrade the cannery website. “We’ve gotten good mileage out of the highway sign installed out by Burns Lake and the sign in town by the ferry terminal...We would like to get two to three new ones put up. One would be in Port Hardy as people get on the ferry to make them aware of

the cannery, one outside Smithers and maybe one just outside Terrace to peak people’s interest as they get closer,” said Chief Administrative Officer Ron Bedard, noting that the signs currently up cost around $20,000. “I’m not sure we’ll get all three signs to be honest. It depends on how big we want to make them and what the components are, but we definitely can get two.” Council unanimously passed the spending, with acting mayor Dan Franzen noting what a good idea it was to have signs installed around Port Hardy before people make their way up the Inside Passage. The District’s portion of the money is coming from a $35,000 economic development grant from the Northern Development Trust.

Ridley Terminals has reached another long term agreement with a coal company that could result in significantly more volume being moved through Prince Rupert. The agreement with Summit Coal Inc. is for a 10year term that begins on January 1, 2015, with the option to renew for two additional years. In terms of volume, the agreement contemplates Summit Coal shipping up to 750,000 tonnes of metallurgical coal from its Mines 14 project in 2015 and up 900,000 tonnes per year through to the end of the agreement in 2024. “RTI now has signed contracts that approach our full rated capacity. We will not likely see more new contracts in 2011, but we expect to have contract(s) ready for Board approval sometime in the first quarter of 2012,” said RTI board chair Bud Smith. “This year Ridley has had a significant number of proposals for capacity. Some with new customers. Others with existing customers wanting to grow their existing business. Each one requires a due diligence process to complete, from both RTI perspective and the customer.” With the contracts signed recently bringing the terminal close to full rated capacity, Smith said the company is eyeing the future and planning for increased demand.

“The terminal is beginning to undertake a high level planning exercise examining potential to grow the next phase of our expansion,” said Smith. “Any future expansion will depend upon obtaining contracts for new capacity, because our shareholder requires us to operate in a commercial manner, which quite frankly means RTI no longer builds first then seek contracts second.” Summit Coal, a subsidiary of Maxim Power Corp.

PRINCE RUPERT TO MASSET

Representatives of the Prince Rupert Airport Authority came to the city council meeting last week to address a concern about safety at the airport that was raised during the municipal election. At the all-candidates forum, one audience member’s question pointed about that the airport has no on-site paramedics or fire department service, meaning help would have to come from across the water in Prince Rupert. More candidates admitted to not being aware that this concern existed than had a solution for it. Now with the election over, the new city council had the Airport Authority come in to explain what they would do if someone needed medical help at the airport or if there was a fire. The airport representatives addressed the issue of emergency medical help first. “All of our staff are required to have first aid certificates, as are the airline staff. There are no other airports other than Vancouver International Airport that have a paramedic based there. For safety we do have an automatic defibrillator on site and we do have a emergency response plan with paramedics and the RCMP,” says the Airport Authority’s vice president Shane Dienstadt. Dienstadt points out that the airport has not had a fire fighter over there since the City acquired the airport in the 90’s. He also said that only airports who have 180,000 passengers a year are required by government regulations to have fire fighting equipment on-site; Prince Rupert

Each holiday season, employees from the TD Bank in Prince Rupert have taken it upon themselves to help those living in need in the community by holding both a food drive and winter accessories collection. This holiday will be employee Phat Tran’s third annual food drive, collecting over 800 items to be donated to the Salvation Army this year alone. Employees Cynthia Rosario and Lucy Ferreira started the mitten tree five years ago now, a Christmas tree that people whom wish to donate mittens, toques or scarves can put the items on to. These items are then brought to elementary schools around town, and are given to children in need. This year approximately 60 items will be divided and donated to Lax Kxeen and Roosevelt. Pictured above are Tran, Rosario and Captain Gary Sheils from the Salvation Army posing in front of the food items collected, and the mitten tree.

sees about 60,000 passengers a year. The airport holds a yearly exercise with the fire department as well. “I’ve never experienced any problem in my 12 years with not having fire fighting or paramedics on-site, we adhere to all Transport Canada regulations, and are inspected annually,” says Dienstadt. Councillor Nelson Kinney got right to the heart of the matter by asking, “ what happens if there is a fire?” “Well, if there’s fire in the building and it can’t be put out by our fire extinguishers, we’re going to collect the insurance I

would guess. If there’s an aircraft fire, the chances it would be anywhere that we could get a fire truck at it would be slimto-none. 98 per cent of airport accidents happen well off the runway,” explained Dienstadt. Dienstadt says the reality is that it would simply cost too much to have a staffed fire station on-site at the airport. “Its not just a matter of cost, its a matter of practicality. If you were to have an airport fire truck and staff there it would cost over a million dollars a year,” says Dienstadt.

Superintendent’s achievement report shows progress don’t meet the target, they still are quite an improvement compared to the beginning of the year when only 38 per cent of all learners met expectations. At the high school level there has been an improvement in blended final marks in a number of courses such as grade 10 English and Math, and grade 12 Communications which saw a 100 per cent completion rate last year - Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Francais Langue - which also saw a 100 per cent completion rate - French, Geography and History with more students passing these courses with higher grades. “We have seen an improvement in our six-year completion rate,” said Haputman. “We have seen some remarkable successes with our Aboriginal students.” Although the amount of students with a six-year completion rate has increased in the district, it is still below the 70 per cent target. In 2009/2010 58 per cent of all learners and 35 per cent of Aboriginal learners completed their schooling, with 2010/2011 seeing an increase of six per cent for all learners, and nine per cent of Aboriginal learners. “In a population this small that’s a fairly significant increase,” commented Hauptman.

By Martina Perry The Northern View Each year, the Superintendent of each school district in the province must provide the British Columbia Ministry of Education with an annual report on student achievement and Superintendent Lynn Hauptman of School District 52 presented her report to the local Board of Education last Tuesday, which showed a number of improvements in different areas. The report stated that basic skills at kindergarten entry has continued to grow year by year, with 72 per cent of students meeting expectations last school year compared to 52 per cent in 2009 and 30 per cent in 2008. This can be credited to the many early learning programs and interventions the district offers to its students. Kindergarten students have been making large gains by the end of the kindergarten year. Spring testing results have shown that 82 per cent of all learners are exceeding expectation in basic skills, with 83 per cent of Aboriginal students exceeding expectations in basic skills.

OPINION

MY VIEW…

A Christmas list for the North Coast The year has absolutely flown by and Christmas is just four days away! It’s pretty crazy how fast the year is gone and as I write this we here in the editorial department at the Prince Rupert Northern View are busy working on our year-in-review edition(s) to take a look back at the year that was. But 2011 isn’t in the history books yet, and if Santa has a bit of extra room left in his sleigh as he jets around the world, here’s a few things he could bring to the North Coast to propel us into the new year. First and foremost, word that Canpotex is moving forward with its environmental assessment. I know this one is a pipe dream given that the environmental assessment is underway and the current comment period won’t be over until midJanuary - a comment period that will only set up another public comment period - but seriously, this goes back to the mention of a possible terminal in June of 2008 and a public meeting that September. For three years people have been chomping at the bit to see the green light on this project, and that’s a long time to wait. Next up, in the spirit of Peace on Earth, a little peace on Watson Island would go a long way. Right now there are two separate legal issues surrounding the development of the property to get it back on the tax roll, which is also costing taxpayers the cost of lawyer bills, and this is another area that has been hanging over the people of the region since Sun Wave bought the property over five years ago. Next up, a reduction in ferry fees. Another one unlikely

to happen, but if the new CEO finds some Christmas spirit it would sure go a long way to helping tourism in both Prince Rupert and Haida Gwaii, as well as residents who have to travel to and from the island for business or personal matters. An expansion of the port would be nice, although I would

expect it to have one of those pesky “Do not open until 2013” stickers on it. Of course this editorial was a bit of fun with the holidays, but in all seriousness I would like to wish everyone out there and your families a safe and happy holiday season. All the best to you and yours.

The things that weren’t David Hahn’s fault at BC Ferries As his tenure draws to a close the press keeps calling David Hahn a “lightning rod” for public discontent with BC Ferries. “I think the screaming started the day I was hired,” he said in an interview last week. In defending fare increases during the same interview he shifted blame to the province. As much as I dislike his constant and arrogant deflection of criticism, there’s an ounce of truth here. He was cornered by public policy from the outset. Political decisions had created a political fiasco for BC Ferries. Building the fast cats sounded like a progressive move for BC. If it worked it would have been good for BC Ferries and good for BC shipbuilding. But it was bungled so badly that it ended in wasted millions and unused ships. Taxpayer wrath over the issue helped sweep Gordon Campbell to power in May 2001. Team Campbell, understandably, was anxious to distance themselves. With BC Ferries it became a simple decision. Removing BC Ferries from the direct control of

into a business meant the rules of business would be applied; that services would be advertised, and through competitive pricing the product would be sold. Instead Mr. Hahn cut marketing almost completely, and in the face of dwindling sales raised prices. There’s no satisfaction in having been proven correct on this front. Applying Hahn’s business model, I couldn’t keep a corner store in business for a week (without an endless pot of provincial capital). And here we stand today. There are new ships in the fleet – the second set of new ships, one might add – though these burn more fuel than the ones they replaced. Contracting out routes failed. Fares skyrocketed. Ridership is in freefall. The only attempt at marketing is a bizarre sales blitz in Vancouver. But Hahn played the hand he was dealt, for better or worse, and the province was the dealer. BC Ferries is categorically in worse shape than it was at the time of privatization, but I don’t point my finger at only David Hahn. There’s plenty of blame to go around.

◆ ON THE HILL

Port Authority donates $50,000 to My Mountain Co-op By Alan S. Hale The Northern View Just in time for Christmas, corporate donations are flowing into the coffers of the My Mountain Cooperative that bought Shames Mountain, which opened for its first season under new management last Friday. The Prince Rupert Port Authority announced on opening day at the Shames Mountain lodge that it will be donating $50,000 to the non-profit cooperative owning the ski hill. “My Mountain Co-op has accomplished an extraordinary task in taking over the ownership and operations of the ski area to the benefit of the entire region,” said the Port Authority’s director of Government Affairs and Economic Partnerships, Ken Veldmen.

“My Mountain Co-op has invested in its mountain, and now the Prince Rupert Port Authority is doing its part to invest in our community.” The Port Authority says the money going to the cooperative is from its Community Investment Fund which is a portion of their profits set aside for funding community improvement projects. “Shames Mountain is an invaluable asset for a widespread community, contributing significantly to the region’s livability,” said Veldmen. According to My Mountain Co-op, the money from the Port Authority will go towards buying a new snow grooming machine for maintaining the downhill runs. Another company from Terrace, Cambria Gordon Ltd. Also made a sizeable donation of $10,250.

AFFNO planning for 2012 Sugar Shack Festival d’Hiver By Shaun Thomas The Northern View After a successful first event in Prince Rupert in 2011, L’Association des Francophones et Francophiles du NordOuest (AFFNO) is getting ready to host the second annual Sugar Shack Festival d’Hiver in late January. As with last year the major event of the festival, which runs from January 25-28, will be the Sugar Shack brunch at the Dick St. Louis Auditorium. The brunch includes traditional food, maple syrup on snow, a children’s station, music and more. “Last year most of the tickets were sold in the last week, but we ended up with only 28 out of 300 tickets not sold... Everyone who attended still tells of the food that was available at the Sugar Shack brunch. The food is obviously

the selling point, but there is lots of stuff for the kids to do and we’ll have Bonhomme de Carnivale there again,” said AFFNO executive director Patrick Witwicki. “Now it’s one year later, AFFNO is on the map and people are familiar with the Sugar Shack Festival. We have every intention of making this annual event as fun as it can be.” The festival will kick off on Wednesday night with Le Carnaval at Roosevelt Elementary in the morning that File photo features a private concert by bilingual recording artists Searson and a kick-off social at Cowpuccino’s that night. Volunteers serve brunch at the 2011 Sugar Shack festival.

â—† MAKING A STATEMENT

City releases draft submission to Enbridge Joint Review Panel By Alan S. Hale The Northern View

of just trying to figure out if a project’s economic benefit outweighs the environmental risk. This approach is meant to give a better idea of how a project will effect quality of life in a region. The city says that the triple bottom line approach is the basis for the Prince Rupert’s Quality of Life Official Community Plan. The result has been, according to the City, that development in Prince Rupert has gone ahead while keeping in mind how much residents value their environment. “Even with growth, Prince Rupert has retained its natural and pristine look and feel. Development has been balanced as a result of the retention of natural landscapes, harbour views and mountain views and focusing higher densities and larger buildings downtown,� reads the submission. With environmental conservation being an important factor for the survival of existing industries and for preserving Prince Rupert’s quality of life for its residents, the City concludes that: “Any negative effect on the physical environment severely handicaps the community to exist as it desires.� The written submission will not be the only participation in the Enbridge hearings that the City is planning. The City of Prince Rupert has also registered as an intervenor, which means that it will be allowed to submit questions and present evidence at the hearings when they get underway.

◆ WESTERN PREMIERS MEETING

Clark touts oil sands, but not pipeline By Tom Fletcher Black Press The premiers of B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan are preparing a “Canadian energy strategy” to present to Ottawa by this spring, while avoiding endorsing a proposed oil pipeline from Edmonton to B.C.’s north coast. B.C. Premier Christy Clark, Alberta Premier Alison Redford and Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall met in Edmonton Tuesday to work out a common position on a variety of common issues, including infrastructure. But with Enbridge’s controversial pipeline set to begin federal environmental hearings in Kitimat on Jan. 10, Clark and Redford both avoided expressing an opinion directly. The twin pipelines would carry lighter petroleum to Alberta and diluted oil sands crude back to a new deep-water port at Kitimat, where it would be loaded on tankers for export. The project has been targeted by aboriginal groups, backed up by Canadian and U.S. environmental organizations. “Certainly in British Columbia we recognize the big contribution that the oil sands make to Canada and to our national economy,” Clark told a news conference in Edmonton after the meeting. “And we’re watching this environmental review process very carefully because that’s what’s going to get the facts out on the table for us.” After more than 4,000 people registered to speak at the pipeline hearings, the federal panel has extended its deadline for deciding on the project by a year. It now expects to have a decision by the fall of

2013. The premiers were enthusiastic about the general idea of energy infrastructure, however, and dropped several hints about how they really view the pipeline. “British Columbia’s coast does not just belong to British Columbia,” Clark said.

Leaking roof at Rupert Moose Lodge “becoming a crisis” By Martina Perry The Northern View It has been nearly 100 years since the Loyal Order of the Moose #1051 started its service in Prince Rupert, helping out with a wide variety of areas over the last century. However, the tables have turned

and now the non-profit organization is in need of assistance from the community it’s served for so long. “The hard thing is that we’ve always done our own fundraising internally, so it’s really hard to reach out to the community and ask for help,” said Dawn Knapton, who is one of the remaining Women of the Moose members.

The club’s facility, the Moose Lodge, has a roof that has been leaking for quite some time causing issues. There are currently a large number of buckets trying to capture the leaking water. However the leaks are causing damages inside the building to the walls and flooring. “We’re trying to keep it as dry as possible, but it’s getting to the point where it’s becoming a crisis,” said Knapton. The Loyal Order of the Moose #1051 have been fundraising for a new roof for around a decade now, currently being shy thousands - Words and music by of dollars. The two largest Jill Jackson and Sy Miller contributors towards the new roof so far have been

The Loyal Order of the Moose #1051 received a check for $5,000 from Ridley Terminals Inc. last week to go towards replacing the Moose Lodge’s old roof.

Ridley Terminals Inc. and Northern Savings Credit Union, who both donated $5,000 apiece. Other donators include Maher Terminals, and individual donations.

By Alan S. hale The Northern View Hecate Strait Employment Development Society has been chosen by the provincial government to administer a new employment program call WorksBC. The program is meant to streamline access to services by people looking for work or interested in new skills training. “It’s taking around 400 contacts from all over the province and we reduce them down to 72. The positive side of it is that if you’re unemployed or on social assistance or just looking for a job, there’s a one-door approach top those services. There’s also specialized clients like immigrants, Francophones, women experiencing abuse, Aboriginals, apprenticeships and they can all come in one door,”

Port Edward Transit

says Hecate Strait’s executive director, Kathy Bedard. Hecate Strait will be in charge of managing the program not just for Prince Rupert but for the north coast, including the Haida Gwaii where Bedard says they are contemplating an expansion of services in partnerships with other community organizations such as Haida Gwaii Community Futures. The program is designed to allow for services to be available in WorkBC employment centres located in each community. The program won’t start until this up coming April. Bedard says that a lot of changes will need to happen at Hecate Strait before they will be ready for their new responsibilities. “Technology needs to change, there’s probably going to be more employment through Hecate Strait here and on the Haida Gwaii,” says Bedard. Bedard says the people who will benefit from the new system most are going to be those on social assistance who are looking for work. They’ll be able to go to one place in their community to get access to everything from skills retraining to wage subsidy programs.

A Letter To Readers

Our carriers work very, very hard every week to deliver the Prince Rupert Northern View and the Northern Connector papers to you. They take their jobs very seriously and do the best they can in all kinds of weather. Many are in school and this is their Àrst job. During the Christmas season, we often get asked “How do I give my carrier a gift to say Thank You for doing a great job when I don’t see them?” If you would like to send him/her a card, tip or gift, you can do it through the Prince Rupert Northern View ofÀce. Simply drop in to the ofÀce, or call Elaine, and we will be sure it gets delivered to the carrier.

Jonnie Aitken put the finishing touch to a heads up play 1.14 seconds later, with Kyle Madsen and Jeff Baker, celebrating his return after a long recovery, both earning assists on the goal. The Rampage pulled the lead to one with a goal by Jared Meers, who was in position in the Demons crease to redirect a nice cross pass from Bryan Tates to give the Rampage some life, but the two goal lead was reinstated by Terry Whelan right off the face-off as Josh Slanina put a neat pass on his stick on a two-on-one and he made no mistake. Steve Venman started the play and earned an assist. That took care of the scoring in the second and the Demons turned a sloppy game into a better passing and opportunity game in the third, with three more goals, the first with just three minutes gone, by Craig Hewitson popping home a forward pass from Justin Bogaert, with an assist to Derek Wakita. Six minutes later the favour was returned as Hewitson dropped a pass from the goal red line back to Wakita coming up the middle and he slammed it behind Kurka. And at 16.22 the pair exchanged passes again with Hewitson getting his second of the night and fourth in two games and Wakita earning his third point of the night.
