Prince Rupert’s cold snap last week caught many residents off guard, or more accurately, it caught their pipes off-guard. The city’s plumbers are being swamped with calls for burst pipes and other coldrelated problems, all over the city. In Prince Rupert the temperature was sent tumbling last week with temperatures reaching minus -19 degrees Celsius plus a windchill. Other communities might scoff at such a number, but in usually-temperate Prince Rupert these temperatures are almost unheard of. Plumbers the Prince Rupert Northern

It wasn’t just residences that were having to deal with a disagreement between their plumbing and the bone-shattering cold outside. Charles Hayes Secondary School spring a leak above a classroom during the night. According to the school’s vice-principal, Kevin Leach, the leak didn’t cause much of a disruption during the school day since they have plans in place for shuffling classes around if a classroom can’t be used. A number of local businesses also had

their pipes burst, causing water damage and, in some cases, necessitating a closure for a day or more. On Friday morning Northern Savings Credit Union also had a pipe burst, which forced them to close down bank operations for the weekend while cleaning and repair was done. The insurance agency was moved into a temporary location until the credit union re-opened on Monday due in part to the high number of claims caused by the weather. “We will be under construction for awhile, but we are fully functioning and ready to help with any banking or insurance needs you may have,” said Interim CEO, Bill Nicholls

Many Rupertitesline up to get few casual longshore jobs Alan S. Hale photo

By Martina Perry

The scene at Third Avenue as people lined up for hours just to get a chance to apply for a limited number of casual jobs with the ILWU.

The Northern View Hundreds of people braved the winter weather and showed up at the Fishermen’s Hall in Prince Rupert on Thursday, January 19, in hopes of receiving an application to become part of the Local 505 Longshore Division. “Applications are handed out as needed, we’re talking every couple of years,” said Tom MacDonald, who is the Secretary-Treasurer of the division as well as the dispatcher. 225 applications were handed out to hopeful contenders whose names were drawn from a lottery. Accusations have been circulating that individuals received more than one ticket. That is something the union denies. “Everybody got one ticket. If anyone had two it’s because they scammed them from another person,” explained MacDonald, adding that some

PRINCE RUPERT TIDES people may have gotten a family member or friend to stand in line for them to assure they got a ticket. In addition to Thursday’s “lottery” winners, a number of applications were handed out to First Nations and recommended people from the industry. MacDonald assures that although they got applications earlier, it doesn’t guarantee they will be hired. The union will now have to go through each application and give it a score based on education,

experience, training, etc..., and then the applicants with the highest scores will be considered for hire after they take their medical tests. The union did it this way because each applicant must do their medical, and they “didn’t want to bombard the hospital here”. MacDonald said the number of applicants selected for hire depends, giving a rough estimation of about 100 applicants who will receive part time positions in a couple of weeks.

OPINION

MY VIEW…

Guest comment: Talk to your kids... I came across this in one of our sister papers. It tells an important message, and a pertinent one. Ecstasy can kill you. Can that message be driven home any more acutely than it has in communities in B.C. and Alberta? In recent weeks, the popular man-made drug has taken several lives and is responsible for another that hangs in the balance. The drugs were laced with paramethoxymetamphetamine. On November 27, Tyler Miller, 20, took ecstasy. He was a gifted Abbotsford musician and student, with great career plans. It’s all over. He was dead in eight hours. On December 19, 17-year-old Cheryl McCormack of Abbotsford ingested ecstasy with some friends – ostensibly as a weight-loss aid. She became unresponsive and, three days later, she died. She was a bright, fun and athletic teen. On New Year’s Eve, a 24-year-old Abbotsford woman engaged in “recreational” use of ecstasy with three friends. By 6 a.m., she was in critical condition in hospital, where she remains. The grief and suffering of the family and friends of these victims is excruciating. In that context, it is such cruel irony, considering ecstasy is known for inducing euphoria and a sense of well-being. It’s chemical Russian roulette. You can feel good and survive‚ perhaps many times. Or you can end up dead. It doesn’t take prolonged use or abuse of ecstasy to court disaster. Ecstasy, or MDMA, is notorious for being laced

with other drugs, including ketamine, methamphetamine and cocaine. Depending on the circumstances, the physiology of the user and other factors, the mix can be lethal. It seems an insane risk, yet ecstasy is popular among a segment of young people who have so much to lose.

Please – parents, teachers, police – speak with your children, your students, your young contacts. Teens, counsel your peers who may be tempted to use ecstasy or are already using it. Give them the cold facts. Implore them to think, to make good decisions.

Talking Prince Rupert Tourism with the Opposition Critic Spencer Chandra Herbert is MLA, Vancouver - West End, and Opposition Critic for Tourism, Culture and the Arts. He spent a day in Prince Rupert last week, visiting with business people in the company of Tourism Prince Rupert, to learn more about the town and our local tourism industry. We also were joined by MLA Gary Coons, Opposition Critic for Ferries and Coastal Communities. At TPR we conduct a wide variety of these familiarization tours on an annual basis. I often write about the travel media and tour operators that we bring to Prince Rupert, but we also bring many industry partners. This includes staff from the various departments of Tourism BC, marketing staff from corporate partners (particularly transportation partners), and of course elected officials and government staff. Obviously this isn’t restricted to officials from the party in power. The most effective advocate depends upon the issue, but clearly the Opposition Critic is well placed to influence virtually any provincial tourism

So the opportunity to have Talking tourism it comes from the front line, from Spencer visit one-on-one with people invested in the industry. individual members of Tourism However, in addition to the issue Prince Rupert was invaluable. of gaming revenue, we had two Some of the concerns raised major points of concern to stress by our members last week were with Spencer. major.

Also, and this is obviously familiar ground For the most part we allowed our members for Gary, we see BC Ferries northern routes to voice their concerns directly to Spencer. It as vital marine highways. Skyrocketing

fares are seriously harming local tourism businesses, and are reducing the ability of residents to use this provincial highway. The province must ensure a return to reasonable rates. In addition to these things we also made sure that Spencer was familiar with two issues that fall mostly under the federal government but are valuable for a concerned MLA to be made aware of from a local perspective. The first of these is of course the cruise industry, and Spencer was provided an overview by the Port Authority. The second is the issue of halibut allocation, and the need for a solution to this for the well being of our sport fishing operators in 2012. I’d like to thank the TPR members, Board of Directors, and Mayor and Council for coming out to meet Spencer. I’d also like to thank the Chamber of Commerce for their hospitality during the visit. But more than anything I’d like to thank Spencer, and Gary Coons, for devoting the time to a discussion about Prince Rupert tourism.

Family Literacy Day this Friday The 2011 2012 Sugar Shack Festival d’Hiver By Martina Perry The Northern View

Coinciding with Family Literacy Day across Canada, the Prince Rupert Public Library will be hosting a number of events this week, mainly on Friday, January 27, including story telling, displays, activities and prizes. Already happening all this week, library visitors can enter a draw for a prize when they borrow a book. Prizewinners will be announced and notified on Friday. On Thursday, a majority of the events will be taking place, with an e-book demonstration happening on Thursday at 7 p.m., as well as Family Story Hour with special guests Carolina de Ryk of CBC Daybreak North and Prince Rupert City Councillor Jennifer Rice as the story readers also happening at 7 p.m. until 8. Starting on Thursday evening from 5 to 9 p.m., and all day Friday the Library will be giving out free replacements of lost library cards. Taking place Friday in the Library’s multipurpose room will be an afternoon of storytelling, games, refreshments, and prizes for children of all ages put on by Northwest Community College between 3 and 5 p.m. Although Family Literacy Day happens only once a year, ABC Life Literacy Canada, a nonprofit organization that aims to inspire Canadians to increase their literacy, offers many fun and easy ways to make literacy part of every family’s daily life at home. These include starting to read to your children when they are babies, find comfortable places to read in your home and encourage everyone in the house to read each day, going for walks with your children and talk about what you see and read along the way, sharing family stories, take

part in cultural activities as a family as this helps your children learn important cultural values and history, research something new that your family is interested in, researching skills are important and help with reading and comprehension, singing and reading rhymes and poems with your children, playing with the sound of words is fun and helps your children learn about how to hear the sounds in words, listening to your children and talk with them about important things in their lives, or reading recipes and cook together.

L’Association des Francophones et Francophiles du Nord-Ouest (AFFNO) invites everyone to experience a taste of Quebec January 28 at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre. Francophone culture, food, and family fun in a festival you’ll never forget!

Learn to Run By Alan S. Hale

S chool Program Registration Information 2012-13 School Year

The Northern View A lot of people make a New Year’s resolution to get off the couch and exercise more, but not many people keep with it. According to Statistics Canada, 61 per cent of Canadian adults are either overweight or obese, and the same goes for 26 per cent of Canadian children. Many people when trying to start exercising regularly find the prospect of actually finding a place to start to be overwhelming. In the beginning it hurts, it’s unpleasant and when you do it by yourself sometimes you’re not even sure if you’re doing it right. Running is a great form of exercise and for those who want to pick it up – even if you haven’t run for exercise before in your life – the Prince Rupert Runner’s Club is starting its “Learn to Run” program at the Charles Hays Secondary School track on February 7. The club will be meeting three times a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:15 p.m. and on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. “For the first four to six weeks, we run on the track and we do the training program there, and then we go out onto the road,” said Charlene Hamilton from Rupert Runners. The program starts off slow with new runners starting off slow only running for a couple minutes then walking to rest then running again. Very gradually the running time gets longer and the rests less frequent until the new joggers find themselves running for kilometres at a time without stopping. This isn’t the first year that Rupert Runners has held the program. Last year the program attracted 84 people looking to run, but according to Hamilton this year the group will have to be limited to just 60. The club scheduled two information sessions for those who are interested at Cowpuccinos, the fist was on Tuesday of this week, but the next one is this Saturday at 9:30 a.m. With only 60 spots available registration is on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you can’t make it to the information sessions visit www.rupertrunners.com for more info.
