    RCMP calling for witnesses in

    toddler death

    BY TODD HAMILTON PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    Prince Rupert RCMP are now seeking wit-nesses of an incident involving a cyclist and a pedestrian pulling two children in a wagon that may be linked to the death of a 23-month-old infant.

    The incident took place on the evening of April 15 between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. near the intersec-tion of 7th Ave. East and Frederick Street. Police are also looking for a driver who stopped their vehicle to assist at the scene.

    Prince Rupert RCMP Const. Matt Ericson said identifying the cyclist or the Good Samari-tan could lead to more clarity on what caused the death of the child.

    Council struggling with budget red inkCity tossing around idea of two per cent tax increase and massive cuts

    BY MARTINA PERRY PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    The budget shortfall facing the City now sits at $675,000, and council is looking at a two per cent tax increase to close the gap.

    If the tax rate were to stay the same as last year, there will be $179,064 less in tax revenue to the City compared to 2012. A large portion of that reduction comes from a new tax regime for port lands, with port grants-in-lieu

    decreasing by $153,694 because of non-market change. However, the City will be getting $30,147 in new tax money due to the expansion at Ridley Terminals.

    Residential taxes are down

    $10,829, while business and other has decreased by $78,121 because of issues such as the closure of J.S McMillan Fish Plant.

    Last year, the City could only pass the budget after increasing

    taxes by 1.5 per cent. To keep even with last years tax revenue, the City would be looking at a 1.7 per cent tax increase.

    However, Councillor Gina Garon said she doesnt agree with a tax increase for residents in the community.

    People are fed up with taxation at this point in time. They dont see that theyre getting a big bang for their buck, she said.

    People are fed up... they dont see that theyre getting a big bang for their buck...

    - Councillor Gina Garon

    It is far too early to speculate...

    - Const. Matt Ericson

    Initial reports by family members said the toddler was struck by a cyclist while being towed by his stepfather in a wagon that night. The next morning, April 16, at approximately 10:55 a.m. police were called because the toddler was unre-sponsive. The child was transported to Prince Ru-pert Regional Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

    As we are in the onset of this investigation, it is far too early to speculate as to the circumstanc-es that led to the death of this child, he said.

    The family is really upset, the family member

    said. Theyve sent [the child] out for an autopsy to find out why he died whether it was internal or his head.

    The boy would have turned two in June.While initially, RCMP did not make a plea to

    the public for assistance locating either the Good Samaritan who stopped their vehicle to help or for the cyclist, they did make a call for witnesses two days later, late Thursday.

    Anyone that may have information regarding this incident to contact the Prince Rupert RCMP Detachment at 250-627-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

    Given the reduction, Mayor Jack Mussallem suggested a new way of making up the shortfall in the form of reducing community enhancement grants by 10 per cent, or $140,000.

    Thats money we give to groups with the expectation that well have the money. Clearly we dont have it, Mussallem said.

    Prince Ruperts Wes Baker said he would like to see the Port put more money into the community, and the revenues coming into the community arent what he believes they should be.

    I dont think wed be in this quandary if the revenues we received from the Port and economic enterprises were at a fair rate, he said.

    Councillor Joy Thorkelson suggested the City should sit down with the Port and inquire if they would be willing to make a donation to offset the $153,000 shortfall in taxes, or cover the 10 per cent cut to community groups.

    Council decided not to pursue closing City Hall an extra day following a presentation by city employee Michelle Montemurro.

    Goods and services in Prince Rupert already cost enough, and to

    propose a reduction in wages, my wages in particular, would not only affect me but many of my co-workers in this building. It would most certainly affect my personal budget which is already tight like many people, she said to council.

    However, council didnt completely exempt city staff, and will be looking at the implications of a five per cent reduction to each department.

    It always seems that were targeting one particular area, even with the suggestion of cutting time at City Hall, said Councillor Anna Ashley.

    Thorkelson agreed, saying City Hall employees losing a days pay a week is a larger sacrifice for those individuals than a slight tax increase for all Rupertites.

    Wages remain the highest operating expense for the City. Between 2009 and 2012, wages climbed from $9.79 million to $10.88 million while benefits increased from $2.1 million to $2.49 million. At the same time, the Citys general operating fund increased from $21.18 million to $23.08 million.

    Other options being looked at to balance the budget are taking $275,000 from the operating surplus and reducing the paving budget by $175,000.

  • BY SHAUN THOMAS PORT EDWARD / The Northern View

    Premier Christy Clark brought her campaign to the North Coast on Friday, including a stop at the Port Edward Community School.

    After being toured around by students Nevaeh Rhyno-Boulet and Jonathon Sanderson-McKay and taking in a presentation by students on the use of the classroom Smart Boards, Clark turned her attention to provincial politics and the development proposed for the region. In particular, Clark spoke of the need to develop LNG export facilities.

    LNG isnt only going to lead to growth in this community, it is going to create growth throughout the province, she said.

    This place is going to really start to shine.... This place, Port Edward, doesnt only have a future, this place is the future.

    Clark said exporting LNG to Asia is needed because the U.S. is the only market being served by B.C., and with only one market there is only one price offered for the product. And, she said, this election will play a huge role in determining the future of the industry and the province as a whole.

    [The LNG industry] will be a pipe dream if the NDP get elected because they will tax it out of existence or put a moratorium on even getting the resource out of the ground, she said, pointing to the school as a sign of prosperity associated with LNG development.

    These projects will need thousands of workers. When those thousands of workers come, families will come. When those families come, this school will fill... This is exactly what a strong economy can do to secure our future. It is also an example of what is at risk if the NDP is elected.

    Currently, though, the Gitgaat and Gitxaala have expressed concerns about LNG projects being rushed through and leaving them out of the process. Clark said that she is committed to including all nations.

    The reason First Nations need to

    be included is because, yes it is a legal obligation, but also it is the right moral thing to do, she said.

    This isnt just an opportunity for non-Aboriginals, this is an opportunity for all British Columbians and we need to ensure everyone is a part of it.

    After Port Edward, Clark carried

    on to Prince Rupert to help open the campaign office of North Coast Liberal candidate Judy Fraser.

    This is the epicentre of what will be driving our economy... This region has the possibility to change the future for generations to come, she said at the gathering.

    What a difference an election campaign makes.Not too long ago, city councillor Jennifer Rice and her bevy of environmentalist supporters would have you believe gas pipelines become oil pipelines. A vociferous vocal opponent to the Enbridge Northern Gateway oil pipeline, Rice has always raged against oil coming to the North Coast.

    If you believe what she was selling then, you have to believe now, she seems to be backing away from that stance, or at least selling out to win an election.

    I have never opposed LNG, but I am always going to stick to my values that it needs to be done responsibly and respectfully. That includes paying attention to the needs and desires of First Nations that are impacted. I also believe we have to be careful. There are now nine or 10 proposals between here and Kitimat and I dont think that is realistic, she said at a kinda-all-candidates meeting earlier this month, adding that the market will decide how many happen.

    The BC NDP believes we have room for LNG on the North Coast, but it needs to be done responsibly. We have agreed though, should we be elected, we will immediately look at the upstream effects of fracking and examine the potential

    impacts from that.Translation: Lets tell em what they want to

    hear now... we can delay the hell out of LNG later.What seems to be clear, Rice has now opened

    her NDP: Winning an election for dummies textbook.

    Lesson No. 1: Overtly oppose LNG in the North the economic lynchpin to any future prosperity and no matter how screwed up the B.C. Liberals are, you could lose this riding.

    But true to form, Rice has tossed in either a little scaremongering or just plain inaccuracy.

    There are not nine or 10 proposals. There are five with an expression of interest in a sixth Grassy Point. And for those keeping score:

    Kitimat LNG, Douglas Channel Energy, LNG Canada in Kitimat, and the B.G. Group in Prince Rupert, Pacific Northwest in Port Edward and now, one maybe in Grassy Point.

    Well, she was half right, good for a D grade.It will be interesting over the campaign to see

    environmentalist Rice hopefully learn the difference between radical opposition and responsible governance.

    Or, as her federal party-goers have determined, if they want win, if they want to govern, they have to learn how to move to the middle.

    As more and more people turn to our web portal at thenorthernview.com and facebook.com/thenorthernview to share their thoughts on the news of the North Coast, it is interesting to see the different perspectives people have on the future of Prince Rupert.

    A prime example of the divide that exists in the community can be found on the $30-million

    multi-use building proposed for the old Elizabeth Apartments site. Shortly after we broke the story of the 2G Groups massive project, the comment section lit-up with Rupertites wanting to weigh in on this new development.

    The comments were a fair balance of those excited about the pending construction and the impact it

    will have on attracting professionals to the community, and those who say the development is unneeded in a community where many are struggling to make ends meet. The latter argue that affordable housing should come before high-end housing for the financially well off.

    While there is no argument that affordable housing would benefit many in the community, the solution to lifting people out of poverty and reducing the need for affordable housing will only come through investments and projects like this one.

    In this case, construction workers, hotel staff, restaurant staff and custodial positions will all need filling, creating more opportunities in the city. Indirectly, a high-end development like this one will attract professionals accustomed to a certain level of housing who are part of other major projects that will create jobs for people in Prince Rupert.

    When it comes to helping economically challenged people, it could be argued a development of this nature helps more than affordable housing by creating more jobs and flowing more money into the community.

    But thats just one persons view. Make sure to log on to thenorthernview.com or facebook.com/thenorthernview to share your thoughts and read what your neighbours think.

    CASSIDY KAWAGECHI DAVE SIMMONS LEIGHANNE BROWN TINA RYAN

    It depends if you want to be part of a group like the

    Friendship House.

    Yes, young people can go to the swimming pool or

    downtown.

    There could be more things for kids to do, but for

    the size of Prince Rupert there are some things.

    Yes, I like going to the park, swimming pool and

    Letters to the editor

    Projects important to B.C.

    Editor:Re: Refinery financing questioned, April 17

    Northern ViewFinally a clear, to the point analysis of the

    value of oil and gas projects in the province. Jim Shepard is no ones puppet.

    His business and personal reputation and acumen is without peer, taking Finning to one of the largest Cat dealers in the world.

    He has a firm grasp of project values to First Nations, knowing of the Syncrude system, the most comprehensive in the world.

    The naysayers only focus on one thing, with no alternative except cancellation. This is not a solution.

    Currently project management people are being solicited for Kitimat work with an employment term of 36 months. This would also apply to infrastructure workers and

    trades. The more B.C. residents who are employed

    on projects such as the refinery, the more it ensures that project and government requirements are met with no impact to the environment.

    Terry Brenan, Aldergrove

    Get out and vote on May 14Editor:The B.C. election is underway. Soon,

    amidst the clamour of speeches and promises, a springtime eruption of colourful lawn signs and energetic people campaigning through our neighbourhoods, around the edges we will hear that old refrain: Im just one person. My vote doesnt matter. Why bother?

    But whose vote counts more? If you dont vote, everyone who does speaks volumes to your silence; if you do, then no vote counts more. Its really that simple.

    Your vote doesnt just count when youve voted for the winning side or because its the first one or the last one counted. Every vote counts the same. It takes one to become two, and two to become three, and who knows where it will all end? What matters is casting that vote in the first place, according to what you think is the right choice, according to your values and your understanding of issues, candidates, leaders and events.

    Vote for whomever you want to win, according to what you want to happen, not according to whomever you think will

    win. Give it your best shot and walk away proud.

    When all those single votes that dont matter are cast, we find a serious force to be reckoned with, a loud, strong, voice that matters a great deal.

    Voting in free and fair elections is a celebration of our democracy; it is how we all help make it work and how we can, each and every one of us, stand up to all those repressive regimes around the world where its not so.

    Make it so, here.Ron McKinnon, Port Coquitlam

    Opinion

    NavAids light the way for safer shippingOn a sunny day last October, members of the Canadian Coast Guard were hard at work with support from Wainwright Marine. They were enhancing one of the most critical pieces of marine safety infrastructure in Prince Ruperts harbour.

    For responsible mariners, some of the most important tools for safe travel are navigational aids. Often called NavAids, the term encompasses all devices and systems that help mariners determine their position and course, warn of dangers and obstructions, and mark preferred routes.

    These include visual aids like buoys and beacons, aural aids like bells and whistles that are triggered in low-visibility conditions, and electronic aids that include radar beacons and the Differential Global Positioning System.

    The most familiar of these are the floating port hand (green) and starboard hand (red) buoys, known as lateral buoys, that mark the sides of a safe navigation channel. There are in fact over a dozen unique floating NavAids used in Canadas bouyage system, each with their own identifying features that professional mariners must be able to recognize and distinguish.

    Also visible in Prince Ruperts harbour are illuminated fixed aids, structures equipped with lights and located at prominent sites to assist mariners in fixing their position.

    John Green has 32 years of marine experience in Prince Rupert, and is the Canadian Coast Guards Aids to Navigation Foreman at the Seal Cove base. Last year, John and his local CCG colleagues made improvements to visual NavAids in Porpoise Channel as part of a coast-wide rebuild. This project began in 2004 with a survey of all navigational sites along Canadas Pacific coast, and resulted in a scheme used to assess which aids will be replaced first. The plan examines the level of service required for each aid and also requests input from user groups.

    Coast Guard members then design a structure and install the equipment to each sites specifications. For example, portions of existing fixed aids constructed from wood were replaced with aluminum. The structures now include more reflective surfaces and stable towers, enhancing safety.

    In addition to deterioration, there were also upgrades to the visibility of the lighted NavAids located at Parizeau Point, Barrett Point and McIntosh Rock. The sites now all have brighter lights to help ships navigate in and out of the harbour, which required new technology.

    Throughout his career, John has seen the technology change dramatically. Once upon a time we used acetylene gas to light NavAids. Then we moved to dry pack batteries, and now weve gone to solar-based systems with battery support. A major advantage now is that instead of servicing these aids each and every year to replace batteries, weve managed to reduce our maintenance trips to once every four years for servicing.

    Marine user groups like the Prince Rupert Port Authority occasionally identify a need for a new beacon or marker to improve harbour safety, and work with CCG to select an appropriate location. Once a site is selected, the user group provides funding to CCG, who in turn will design, build and service the new NavAid. A private-public partnership such as this is currently underway for a new shore marker at Philips Point, which will be useful for all vessels traveling in and out of Prince Ruperts inner harbour.

  • BY SHAUN THOMAS KITKATLA / The Northern View

    There is a new face leading the Gitxaala Nation.

    Conrad Lewis is the new chief councillor for Kitkatla after defeating incumbent Elmer

    Moody by a narrow margin in the April 15 general election. Lewis, who currently lives in Prince Rupert, said he will be shifting his attention to Kitkatla.

    The question was posed to me where I would stay, and Ive always said I will be where I perceive I am needed the most, he

    said, Right now that is Kitkatla, so I will be

    spending the majority of my time there. However, if there are meetings that are important to the Gitxalaa here in Prince Rupert I will be here.

    Lewis said congratulations from the community and those outside of Kitkatla have been flowing in since the election results were announced, including congratulations from the Hartley Bay council, Skidegate council and councillors from Lax Kwalaams.

    After the announcement was made I was on the phone until three in the morning with people congratulating me. The next morning people in the village were shaking my hand and when I got back into Prince Rupert, Gitxalaa members I saw were all congratulating me, he said.

    The atmosphere is so positive and we have to enhance that feeling and move toward positive change.

    Lewis will be joining familiar faces around the band offices, as all of the incumbent councillors were re-elected, and the new chief councillor is looking forward to getting started.

    There is a 14-day transition period and the swearing-in is scheduled for May 1. After that we will get down to business, he said.

    An NDP government would cancel a four-per-cent increase in BC Ferries fares scheduled for next spring, freezing fares for two years as they conduct an audit to determine the future of coastal ferry service.

    NDP transportation critic Maurine Karagianis said an NDP government would provide an additional $20 million in each of the next two years to make up for the fare revenue lost by cancelling the increase, which was ordered last year by B.C. Ferry Commissioner Gord Macatee.

    The two-year freeze proposal is a repeat of the NDPs 2009 election platform, which also promised a full review of the ferry rate structure.

    Karagianis wouldnt rule out further reductions in low-ridership sailings. She said the ferry commissioner would continue to operate, but certainly the ferry corporation doesnt always take every recommendation the ferry commissioner makes.

    Macatee, appointed last year to the independent ferry commissioner role, has just completed a review of ferry operations designed to find $26 million in savings. The B.C. Liberal government launched the review in May 2012, after adding an additional $79.5 million to the coastal ferry services annual subsidy over four years, bringing it to about $180 million a year.

    Transportation Minister Mary Polak has emphasized that little-used ferry sailings cannot continue indefinitely, as overall ferry ridership has declined in recent years and BC Ferries has lost money even with increased subsidies.

    Freezing fares

    Downtown Prince Rupert could soon be home to a $30 million multi-use building.

    The 2G Group announced on April 17 its plans to build an integrated office, hotel, apartment and restaurant complex at the site of the old Elizabeth Apartments. The project, done in partnership with the Blended Capital Group and Stuart Olson Dominion, is expected to be open next summer, but 2G Group CEO Geoff Greenwell said response has already been strong.

    We have a couple of major corporations interested in taking a significant portion of the building, he said, noting the idea is a very new one.

    A lot of this is based on feedback from people leading up to this conference... At this point it is basically tell us what you want and we will build it.

    Much of the steel frame building will be built in a modular manner off the site and brought into Prince

    Rupert. Greenwell envisions a high end five or six story building, depending on how the process with city council proceeds.

    All of the companies expressed the need for high end executive residences, but also office space. They said, if were coming here, where are we going to put our managers and executives?, he said.

    We want to get this up and going this year because it is a beautiful site with an amazing view.

    Prince Rupert Mayor Jack Mussallem said the building will fill a gap in the communitys housing inventory.

    I have noted that people I have talked to on an individual basis about getting older have said they want a view, they dont want maintenance like lawn mowing and they want to come and go as they please... The demand for that type of accommodation is there, he said, noting that it bodes well for Prince Ruperts future.

    It speaks to the optimism and opportunity in Prince Rupert and the surrounding area that is driven by port development.

    A $30 million multi-use building is being proposed for downtown Prince Rupert at the location of the former Elizabeth Apartments.

  • April 24, 2013 Northern View A9www.thenorthernview.com Special Report

    BY MARTINA PERRY PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    Twenty-one-year-old Justin Brooks was a new father, a son, the eldest brother of his family, a nephew and a cousin.

    But since Justin mysteriously lost his life on the chilly early morning of March 4, his family has been left to mourn the loss without any answers as to why it happened.

    Justin was found deceased in the Prince Rupert harbour by the Rotary Waterfront Park early that Monday morning. A month later Justins family was informed the coroners service determined there were no serious injuries that would contribute to his death, and foul play was ruled out.

    RCMP did tell the family there was a group of people who admitted to assaulting Justin that night, but said they left him alive by the old CN station.

    Cheryl Ryan, Justins mother, said when she was told all the witnesses stories lined up by RCMP, she told them she wished they could take Justins statement. Because RCMP cannot, his family has vowed to talk for him.

    We are Justins voice. We have to speak up for him because hes no longer here to give his side of the story, Sheri Latimer, Justins aunt, said.

    I know it wasnt an accident. He didnt know how to swim, and he wouldnt go near the water, Ryan said.

    The family said RCMP wont release the names of those who allegedly assaulted Justin. Theyre more upset that the individuals who attacked Justin havent been charged with anything.

    How could they beat someone and not get any charges? You could see the lumps on his head from what they did to him when we viewed him at the Ferguson Funeral Home, Ryan said.

    Theyre walking around and thinking they got away with it. Im not going to stop until justice is done.

    The last family member to speak with Justin was his father, with Justin telling him he was going to meet up with co-workers.

    Justin worked at Chances for approximately one year, but did not attend work the next morning on March 4.

    Ryan said she had invited her son Justin to come to their new place in Lax Kwalaams the weekend of his passing, but he declined because he had to work on Monday.

    If he just came... Thats what I keep thinking, and it hurts, Ryan said.

    Justin was raised in a tight-knit, large family and while they acknowledge they can never have him back, they hope they can at least get closure. Latimer said they dont want Justins eight-month-old baby boy, Lucas, growing up without knowing what happened to his father.

    He sees his dads picture and reaches for him because his dad always packed him. He gets excited when he sees his dads picture... My son will never be able to hold his baby again, an emotional Ryan said.

    Justin will be missing out on a lot, like his first birthday and all those first things dads take part in, Sheri added.

    Justins family doesnt buy into the idea that Justin went onto the rocks on the waterfront, and slipped into the ocean. His family said if he had slipped, he wouldnt have ended up in the water.

    Peter Wesley, Justins stepfather, looked into what the tides were that night, and said low tide was approximately 11 p.m., and high tide was approximately 5 a.m.

    [RCMP] said this happened at about one or 2:30 a.m., and thats a few hour difference before high tide, Wesley said.

    Wesley went down to the waterfront to investigate on a day with a very similar tide.

    I was down there to see the two-and-a-half and three hour difference, snapping pictures... Even if he slipped and fell these rocks wouldve stopped

    him and the water didnt go up that high, Wesley said.

    The family also said Justin wasnt suicidal, experiencing two focal points of his life in the last year, the first being the birth of his son.

    A few weeks after, one of Justins lifelong dreams came true. He and family members got to see Metallica, his all-time favourite band, perform live in Vancouver.

    That was one of the big highlights for all our lives, especially Justin, Latimer said.

    His mother remembers Justin as being a cheerful and caring young man who volunteered at the Friendship House, helping out with the elders.

    He was happy... He was always smiling, Ryan said.

    Since the family was told foul play has been ruled out they have decided to seek answers for themselves, planning a number of fund and awareness raising events to put toward hiring a private investigator and a cash reward for anyone giving vital information as to what happened to Justin that early March morning.

    Justins family will be holding a candlelight ceremony at the Rotary Waterfront Park, close to where Justin was discovered, on May 4 at 8 p.m. The family of 16-year-old Emmalee Rose Mclean, who was found partially submerged in the waterfront along George Hills Way in 2010, and the family of 13-year old Kayla Rose McKay, who was found deceased along the waterfront in 2004, have been invited to take part in the ceremony.

    All of our stories are similar. They havent gotten justice either, Ryan said.

    Justins relatives are hoping to find a dance group that will do a blanket dance at the ceremony.

    On top of the candlelight ceremony, the family has started organizing a 50/50 and Loonie Auction and are currently calling out for prize donations, and are taking orders for Justice for Justin T-shirts. Anyone interested helping out in anyway or purchasing items from the fundraisers are asked to contact Sheri Latimer at 250-622-2989.

    Additionally, an account has been set up at Scotia Bank in Prince Rupert for donations.

    In the meantime, Justins family is pleading with anyone involved to come forward.

    We want to know why we had to bury him... We shouldnt have had to do that, Ryan said.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact the local RCMP detachment, or Crime Stoppers.

    The Prince Rupert RCMP declined comment for this story.

    RCMP decision not to press charges infuriates family

    Cheryl Ryan, left, said she doesnt believe her son Justin Brooks, who was found dead in the Prince Rupert Harbour in March, voluntarily entered the water as he couldnt swim. And if he did go near the water, he always wore a lifejacket. He felt safe with a lifejacket on. He took it like a man, Ryan said.

    Family pleads: Justice for Justin

    We want to know why we had to bury him.-Cheryl Ryan

    One day at a time

    April 24, 2013 Northern View A11www.thenorthernview.com

    Red: Oral Cancer. There is no single cause for oral cancer but some factors increase the risk of developing it: smoking or chewing tobacco or using snuff, especially if you also drink alcohol heavily, chewing betel nut and sun exposure to lips.

    Gold: Childhood Cancer. Cancer in children is rare. Most Canadian children who develop it will survive their disease. The most common cancers diagnosed in children (aged 0-19) are leukemia, brain and spinal tumors, and lymphomas (Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas)

    Lime Green:Lymphoma. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma can cause many symptoms including: swollen, painless lymph nodes in the neck, armpits or groin, unexplained weight loss, fever, soaking night sweats, coughing, trouble breathing, or chest pain, weakness and tiredness that wont go away.

    Black: Melanoma. Check for anything new: a new mole (That looks abnormal) a change in the size shape, colour, or texture of a mole, a sore that does not heal. Check yourself from head to toe.

    Teal: Ovarian Cancer. Early ovarian cancer may not cause obvious symptoms. But, as the cancer grows, symptoms may include: pressure or pain in the abdomen, pelvis, back or legs, a swollen or bloated abdomen, nausea, indigestion, gas, constipation, or diarrhea

    Light Blue: Prostate Cancer. A man with prostate cancer may not have any symptoms. For men who do have symptoms, the common symptoms include: urinary problems, not being able to pass urine, having a hard time starting or stopping urine flow and needing to urinate often, especially at night.

    Kelly Green: Kidney Cancer. Common symptoms of kidney cancer include: blood in the urine, pain in the side that does not go away, a lump or mass in the side or abdomen, weight loss, fever, feeling very tired or having a general feeling of poor health.

    Purple: Pancreatic Cancer. Sometimes called the silent disease because early stages often do not cause symptoms. But, as the cancer grows, symptoms may include: pain in the upper abdomen or upper back, yellow skin and eyes, and dark urine from jaundice, weakness, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, and weight loss.

    Grey: Brain Cancer. Family history: It is rare for brain tumours to run in a family. Only a very small number of families have several members with brain tumors.

    Yellow: Bladder Cancer. Men are two to three times more likely than women to get bladder cancer. Smoking is the most common risk factor. The tars and chemicals in the smoke pass quickly from the lungs into the bloodstream and then into the urine, which collects in the bladder.

    Orchid: Testicular Cancer. The most common signs of testicular cancer include: painless lump on testicle, swelling of a testicle or change in the way it feels, pain or discomfort in a testicle or in the scrotum, feeling of heaviness or aching in the lower abdomen (stomach area) or scrotum.

    Pink: Breast Cancer. Doctors recomentd that women have regular clinical breast exams and mammograms to find breast cancer early. Treatment is more likely to work well when breast caner is detected early.

    Working for a cure: April is Cancer Awareness Month

    Red: Oral Cancer. There is no single cause for oral cancer but some factors increase the risk of developing it: smoking or chewing tobacco or using snuff, especially if you also drink alcohol heavily, chewing betel nut and sun exposure to lips.

    Gold: Childhood Cancer. Cancer in children is rare. Most Canadian children who develop it will survive their disease. The most common cancers diagnosed in children (aged 0-19) are leukemia, brain and spinal tumors, and lymphomas (Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas)

    Lime Green:Lymphoma. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma can cause many symptoms including: swollen, painless lymph nodes in the neck, armpits or groin, unexplained weight loss, fever, soaking night sweats, coughing, trouble breathing, or chest pain, weakness and tiredness that wont go away.

    Black: Melanoma. Check for anything new: a new mole (That looks abnormal) a change in the size shape, colour, or texture of a mole, a sore that does not heal. Check yourself from head to toe.

    Teal: Ovarian Cancer. Early ovarian cancer may not cause obvious symptoms. But, as the cancer grows, symptoms may include: pressure or pain in the abdomen, pelvis, back or legs, a swollen or bloated abdomen, nausea, indigestion, gas, constipation, or diarrhea

    Light Blue: Prostate Cancer. A man with prostate cancer may not have any symptoms. For men who do have symptoms, the common symptoms include: urinary problems, not being able to pass urine, having a hard time starting or stopping urine flow and needing to urinate often, especially at night.

    Kelly Green: Kidney Cancer. Common symptoms of kidney cancer include: blood in the urine, pain in the side that does not go away, a lump or mass in the side or abdomen, weight loss, fever, feeling very tired or having a general feeling of poor health.

    Purple: Pancreatic Cancer. Sometimes called the silent disease because early stages often do not cause symptoms. But, as the cancer grows, symptoms may include: pain in the upper abdomen or upper back, yellow skin and eyes, and dark urine from jaundice, weakness, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, and weight loss.

    Grey: Brain Cancer. Family history: It is rare for brain tumours to run in a family. Only a very small number of families have several members with brain tumors.

    Yellow: Bladder Cancer. Men are two to three times more likely than women to get bladder cancer. Smoking is the most common risk factor. The tars and chemicals in the smoke pass quickly from the lungs into the bloodstream and then into the urine, which collects in the bladder.

    Orchid: Testicular Cancer. The most common signs of testicular cancer include: painless lump on testicle, swelling of a testicle or change in the way it feels, pain or discomfort in a testicle or in the scrotum, feeling of heaviness or aching in the lower abdomen (stomach area) or scrotum.

    Pink: Breast Cancer. Doctors recomentd that women have regular clinical breast exams and mammograms to find breast cancer early. Treatment is more likely to work well when breast caner is detected early.

    BY MARTINA PERRY PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    Like many who are put in the situation, Prince Ruperts Cathy Quane discovered a close family member had been diagnosed with a life-altering disease and didnt know what she could do to help.

    While Quane knew when Barb, her sister-in-law, was diagnosed with glioblastoma there wasnt anything she could physically do to assist with the recovery of the disease, she discovered there was a way she could help others battling cancer and hopefully prevent others from being diagnosed.

    In 2006 Quane got a team of people together to participate in Prince Ruperts Relay for Life event, and has returned to the track every year since.

    That first year Quanes team, Barb.Coms Army, worked together to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society they even had a friendly competition going with another team to see which team could raise the most. Quane remembers her team only being slightly behind in their fundraising total. A dedicated Quane decided she would put her hair on the line in hopes of getting a boost in donations.

    I said if I got $1,000 in an hour, I would shave my head. Well, I got $1,800 in half an hour, she said.

    Newly bald, Quane was questioned by people if she had cancer, and said she got to feel what those living with the disease face.

    You dont really know what happens to someone until youve walked a mile in their shoes, she said.

    The name Barb.Coms Army was choosen because Quanes sister-in-law absolutely hated computers, and because a lot of peole are needed to assist with those diagnosed with cancer.

    When someone has a battle it takes a whole army of people doctors, nurses, family and friends. Its takes more than one person when youre sick. I think the bigger army you have, the more support you have, Quane said.

    Quanes sister-in-law lost her battle with cancer five years ago, but she has continued to participate in the relay.

    I miss her everyday. I think cancer might have kicked her butt, but she gave it a run for the money. She had strength and determination and that made us feel better, Quane said.

    Quane continued to rally up team members following her relatives passing and was the chair for Prince

    Ruperts Relay for Life for a few years to do her part to end the disease once and for all.

    Everybodys been touched by cancer personally, either a co-worker, friend or a family member. This is how you give back, because the Cancer Society does good work... I have a lot of friends who have lost the battle, but many are winning their battles. This is how I show them support, she said.

    When you hear those words from the doctor, You have cancer, I think those are very terrible, gut wrenching words to hear, Quane said.

    Cancer is there and we have to accept it, but we dont have to take it laying down, Quane said.

    Quane estimates her team has raised close to $60,000 in the years theyve been participating in Prince Ruperts Relay for Life without any large-scale fundraising events.

    If five people give you $20 thats

    $100, which pays for a kid battling cancer to go to camp for one day, she said.

    While Quane has lowered her involvement with organizing the 2013 event, she will still be helping by volunteering and participating as a team.

    Barb.Coms Army is aiming to raise $5,000 this year and is one of 14 teams registered at this point.

    Like this years organizers, Quane hopes more teams come out to participate in the fundraising event that honours those who lost their lives to cancer, supports those battling the disease and fights back against cancer by raising money for research.

    Although Prince Ruperts event has consistently raised an impressive amount of money, Terrace raised more than double what Prince Ruperts event did last year, with Quane saying they are able to do it because of their

    larger group of dedicated organizers. While Prince Rupert still raises tens of thousands of dollars each year, there has only been approximately six people doing all of the organizing over the past few years.

    You can only do so much when youre one of six, she said.

    Quane said while donations for the event are always welcomed with open arms, organizers also encourage people to help in any way they can.

    Prince Rupert is a giving community, and I know theres only so many dollars... Give us your time. Time is just as valuable if not more so, she said.

    Quane said theres lots of ways to get involved with the event, from entering as part of a team to helping out with the behind the scenes stuff, like baking, put up and take down, kids activities and more.

    Quane said anyone interested in entering a team for this years Relay for Life is encouraged to contact her at 250-624-9566, or register online at www.relaybc.ca.

    Additionally, people interested in volunteering for the event in other ways are also asked to contact Cathy.

    The 2013 relay will take place at the Prince Rupert Middle School track on Saturday, June 1.

    STRIKINGSwimmers excel in PG

    BY CHRIS STREETSpecial to The Northern View

    The Prince Rupert Amateur Swim Club (PRASC) sent 23 swimmers to Prince George for the annual Dental Moose Meet.

    The event brought together 260 swimmers from across Northern B.C. Prince Rupert joined with Terrace, Kitimat and Smithers to compete together as Points North, and upset the hometown Barracudas 1810-1583.

    Leading the way from Prince Rupert was Trey Kish (13) who won the silver aggregate in the 13-14 boys age group. He won the 50 backstroke and 100 freestyle, came second in the 50 freestyle and 100 and 200 backstrokes and third in the 50 butterfly and 200 free. His time of 28.01 in the 50 freestyle was good for a new AAA Provincial Qualifying time.

    Also winning a silver aggregate was Liam McChesney (11). Liam won the 50, 100 and 200 backstrokes as well as the 50 butterfly. He also came second in the 50 breaststroke and 100 freestyle, and third in the 50 freestyle and 200 IM. Liam made a new AAA time in the 200 IM and a new Far Western Qualifying time in the 50 backstroke.

    Avery Movold (13) was the clubs other aggregate winner. Days after her 13th birthday Avery won the bronze aggregate in the 13-14 girls age group. She won the 100 butterfly, 50 freestyle

    and 50 backstroke. She came second in the 100 backstroke and the 100 and 200 freestyles. She also grabbed a third in the 200 backstroke. Her 100 butterfly time of 1:14.41 was good for a new AAA time.

    There were many other notable PRASC performances, including Warren Barton (10) coming third in the 200 IM and both the 50 and 100 butterfly. Zachary Dolan (11) came second in the 50 fly and the 100 and 200 breaststrokes. He also came third in the 50 breaststroke and both the 50 and 200 backstroke. Brandan Hagen (15) came second in the 50 breaststroke and third in the 100 breaststroke. Rya Kish (10) won the 50 and 100 breaststroke and made both her first AA and Far Western qualifying times with a 1:41.64 100 breaststroke. Amy Leighton (11) came second in the 50 breaststroke and third in the 100 and 200 breaststrokes. Kai Leighton (10) came third in the 50 breaststroke, the 50 and 100 backstrokes and the 50 and 100 freestyles. He made his first ever AA time with a 35.89 50 freestyle. Sarah McChesney (16) came second in the 50 backstroke and 50 freestyle and third in the 100 backstroke and 100 freestyle. Cyrus Sobredo (16) came third in the 50 breaststroke.

    Marlee McDonald (10) and Emma Movold (9) were the only PRASC swimmers to record new personal best times in all of their races.

    Points North upset home team

    Rupert teams place second in Kitamaat tourneyBY CAMERON ORR KITAMAAT / The Northern Sentinel

    With ten minutes still remaining on the clock, the Haisla Senior Womens basketball team were intent on closing their 10 point gap against their rivals, the Prince Rupert Thunder, in the final of the Kitamaat Basketball Tournament.

    For the entire Womens Division final game the Haisla kept pace, but couldnt squeeze the points gap as the seconds wound down.

    But as the team persevered the Prince Rupert leader grew narrower, and victory at last appeared possible.

    When the final buzzer sounded,

    the Haisla girls stood victorious, squeaking out a narrow one point, 56-55 win.

    Womens coach Mike Ridsdale said the team had a good mix of leadership and youthful energy, which combined to make for a good rotation of their bench, he said.

    In the final game, [Prince] Rupert started by shooting a high percentage, he said through e-mail to Black Press.

    Our game plan was to push the tempo, knowing with their short bench they would tire.

    On the mens side, the Van City Untouchables placed first with an 82-72 point win against the Prince Rupert Lights Out.

    Port partners look to bright futureCapacity at RTI, Pinnacle sold out

    BY SHAUN THOMASPRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    Four port partners were looking to the future on the first day of the National Aboriginal Business Conference in Prince Rupert, and all agreed the future looked bright.

    Frans Tjangilli of Smit Marine spoke first and said his company has seen the ups and downs in business mirroring the economy on the North Coast, but the company is cautiously optimistic going forward.

    We see a lot of promise, but hope that it is steady growth because that is how we can keep up, he said.

    Were very confident about our future because there is a lot of promise, but were also cautious because first we need to see things get done.

    Pinnacle Renewable Energy president Leroy Reitsma spoke next, outlining plans for up to seven pellet export silos at Westview Terminal. According to Reitsma, there is no shortage of demand when it comes to rationalizing expansion.

    We are not in an in-and-out commodity company, we have stable five year commitments with customers... We are sold out through to 2019, so if someone was to ask for more product, I would say help us build a new mill and then we can talk, he said.

    We are very excited and are

    anticipating the completion of the Prince Rupert facility. Once its done, all product from along Highway 16 will be coming to Prince Rupert.

    While expansion is underway on the site, Matt La Fiandre of Ridley Terminals Inc. said all of the additional capacity the project will create is already sold out and future expansion talks are underway.

    We have applied for approval to purchase a fourth stacker/reclaimer. We hope to get that approval from the government, but there is no update on that at the moment, he said.

    Right now we are at five incoming rail lines and four outgoing, which is up from three incoming and two outgoing that were on the site.

    Derek Taylor of CN Rail pointed to $1.9 billion in planned work in western Canada that will improve access to Asian markets for Canadian goods.

    Increasingly we see ourselves as the backbone of the economy, he said.

    If you were to put a dollar value on everything we move, in 2012 it would have been over $200 billion. That is something we take seriously and reflect on often.

    CityWest hours changing

    BY SHAUN THOMAS PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    Come May, CityWest customers will have fewer hours in which to pay their bill or make services changes at the Third Ave. location.

    On May 6 the hours at the storefront will be changing to 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m from the current hours of 9:30 a.m. to five p.m., a reduction of one hour. However, company officials say the reduced hours come as a result of listening to their customers.

    The majority of customers surveyed, when asked if they would prefer to call us or come in, said they would prefer to call. As a result we implemented a new telephone system to handle calls and reduce wait time, explained CityWest human resources and customer service director Sean Carberry.

    Since then, we have experienced a decrease in traffic at the storefront location between the hours of nine a.m. and 10 a.m. and from 4:30 p.m. to five p.m. This change also brings us in line with other storefronts in the region that have the same hours.

    International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 337 shop steward Lucy Zroback said the reduction in operating hours will not impact the hours of CityWest employees as the call centre will remain open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Along with the change in hours, Carberry said the company is looking at new ways to engage customers.

    Right now you can e-mail one of our representatives from the website, and we are looking at chat functionality in the future, he said.

    Technical support will continue to be offered to Internet customers 24 hours per day.

    Business Resource Centre opening in June

    BY SHAUN THOMASPRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    Major changes are coming to the building currently occupied by TriCorp.

    Effective June 1, the facility will be re-christened the Coastal Business Resource Centre and will fall under the management and operation of the 2G Group, organizers of the National Aboriginal Business Opportunities Conference. The vision for the centre will be a shared office building that will house 11 offices and six smaller cubicle spaces to serve as a one-stop shop for existing and proposed resource businesses in the region.

    With all the growth in the region, there is a distinct lack of support service in a number of key areas, things like environmental engineering, urban planning, Aboriginal consultation and more, said 2G Group CEO Geoff

    Greenwell. All of the businesses that have

    been invited into the space offer strategic services that are going to be needed moving forward.

    Already seven of the 11 office spaces and three of the six cubicle spaces have been leased. Company specialties range from land negotiation and First Nations engagement to economic development to communication services to capital lending. Greenwell expects more companies to come on board as the June 1 opening draws near.

    There is huge demand to get into this building, he said.

    TriCorp will be moving to a new building constructed out at Grassy Bay being constructed by the Metlakatla Development Corporation. That building is expected to be complete mid-June with TriCorp resuming operations at the new site in early July.

    Update on Rupert LNG projectsBY SHAUN THOMAS PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    As LNG jumps to the forefront of North Coast development, four of the biggest players in the industry spoke about their plans for Prince Rupert.

    The LNG panel of the National Aboriginal Business Opportunities Conference consisted of BG Group Canada acting president Steve Swaffield, whose company is proposing a terminal on Ridley Island, Pacific Northwest LNG head of stakeholder management Tessa Gill, whose company is developing the terminal on Lelu Island, Spectra Energy manager of Aboriginal relations and permitting Evan Saugstad, whose companys pipeline would supply gas to Lelu Island and Coastal GasLink Pipeline vice-president of Aboriginal and stakeholder relations Robert Kendel, whose company would be building the pipeline for the BG terminal.

    Gill told delegates the future of the $9 billion to $11 billion project in Port Edward should be known within the next 24 months.

    We hope to make our formal submission to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency at the end of this year. With a one year process for review, we would expect a business decision to come at the end of 2014, she said, noting that up to 300 operational jobs would come with the opening of the terminal.

    The earliest we could deliver LNG to customers is 2018, but it is more likely that we would begin operations in early 2019.

    Swaffield said he didnt expect a decision on the BG Terminal to come until a year later, in 2015, but said the company will be increasing its presence in the region as the project develops.

    We are planning to open an office in Prince Rupert later this year, and we expect to have a project submission available in the next few weeks, he said, noting up to 3,800 jobs would be created during terminal construction.

    Preference will be given to hiring locally, but we will need to bring in outside experts for certain positions.

    Spectra Energy is still examining the route for its 850-kilometre pipeline, with consultation continuing with communities and First Nations along the route ahead of expected approval in 2015, but Saugstad said the company sees accessing the coast as a necessity for the province.

    The U.S., the traditional market for Canadian LNG, has as much if not more gas than we do and are expected to become self-sufficient in the coming years. So we are looking for new markets and will need new markets just to maintain the jobs we have in the industry now, he said.

    Kendal said consultations have just begun on the 750 kilometre pipeline from Fort St. John to Prince Rupert.

    We are really motivated to expand our footprint moving forward as this really is a game changer... Were committed to making long-term commitments to the communities we work with and to B.C. as a whole, he said.

    The beautification of Prince Rupert will be in full swing this summer, Paint Prince Rupert advocate Glen Saunders told the Chamber of Commerce on April 17.

    The first mural of the season will replace the existing whale mural along McBride Street between 8th and 9th Avenue East. The image will depict wolves in a night forest scene, and is being done at the request of City Hall.

    We wanted to move away from the marine theme and move more to wildlife we have here on the North Coast, and we certainly have wolves, said Saunders, adding that plans are underway for another three or four murals.

    Weve done a proposal for CityWest, but havent heard back. We also have artwork done up for Canfisco, which is quite intricate... Galaxy Gardens has had a mock-up done and the Rupert Square Mall is looking at a mural inside.

    But this year Saunders has his eyes on more than just paint.

    We have great resources in our community in the form of amazing totem poles, but it is dark a lot of the year. So I have started fundraising for lights for the totem poles that will highlight the existing inventory we have, he said, adding something also needs to be done with the sign by the ferry terminals.

    It is embarrassing that people from Via Rail, BC Ferries and Alaska Ferries are greeted like that... Its one of our week links.

    More murals coming

    Youth centre seen as top priority

    By Shaun ThomaS PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    There is nothing for young people to do in Prince Rupert.

    That was the message from 25 students who met with service providers at a conference earlier this month designed to find out the wants and needs of young people on the North Coast.

    It was so apparent that every youth in there was thinking the same thing: They just want something to do, something constructive for the weekends and evenings so theyre not going out partying or going on the streets, said Const. Matt Ericson, one of the organizers of the conference.

    At the end of the session, based on feedback and ranking of ideas, Ericson had a Top 15 list of what the students wanted. Topping the list was to re-open the bowling alley as a youth centre, something Ericson said he would love to see.

    When it comes to the bowling alley and youth centre, I would love to approach community groups and say this is what young people want, lets make it happen, he said.

    Everyone is in agreement that we need something for youth, so why not work together on this?

    The second top request was a community

    council owned and run by youth to give young people a greater say in what happens in town, which was followed by the creation of a shelter for troubled youth.

    There is no emergency shelter for kids in town, so how do we help them and where do we send them, asked Ericson.

    Along with planning a second similar conference in the fall, Ericson said his hope is that the different service providers who work with youth will come together to enhance

    service in the region. I sit on so many different panels and

    all have to do with youth, so why are we reinventing the wheel? With all the crossing of work that is going on, why not get everyone together, he asked, noting that all groups involved recognized something was missing before the conference was held.

    What we forget to do is ask the youth what they want, and asking that is so pivotal to giving youth what they need.

    Shaun Thomas / The Northern ViewRe-opening the Totem Lanes Bowling Alley as a youth centre was the top idea for 25 young North Coast residents during a forum earlier this month.

    Young people just want something to do

    Folk duo performing tomorrow night

    By Martina Perry PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    Folk music band Madison Violet, consisting of Canadian singer-songwriter duo Brenly MacEachern and Lisa MacIsaac, will be taking the stage in Prince Rupert tomorrow night.

    Crystal Lorette, general manager of the Lester Centre, encourages music-lovers to take in the duo she describes as young, beautiful and talented.

    By fusing melodies over harmonies, youre immediately captivated. Madison Violet will snap you out of the cold April showers and rekindle your passion for the warmth of live music, Lorette said.

    Madison Violets newest album The Good in Goodbye follows the success the pair found from their breakthrough album, No Fool for Trying, which was nominated for a Juno Award in 2010 in the Roots and Traditional Album of the Year category.

    The duo has been nominated

    for a number of East Coast and Canadian Folk Music Awards. They have also toured with Stuart McLeans Vinyl Cafe and shared the stage with artists such as Chantal Kreviazuk, Ron Sexsmith and The Indigo Girls.

    Madison Violet became the only Canadians to win The John Lennon Songwriting Contest in 2009 in the Maxell Song of the Year Award category for The Ransom, which also won the Folk/Singer-Songwriter Song of the Year in the 2011 Independent Music Awards.

    Madison Violets concert will be taking place at the Lester Centre of the Arts in Prince Rupert on April 25 as part of a northern tour the group is doing this month. The duo planned to do the tour in November, but because of bad road conditions had to postpone it.

    Tickets for the performance in Prince Rupert can be purchased at Cooks Jewellers or the Lester Centre. The concert will begin at eight p.m.

    Madison Violet bring a unique sound to the stage.

    The Prince Rupert business community is partnering up with the North Coast Health Improvement Society to benefit residents of Acropolis Manor.

    When the Chamber of Commerce holds its annual auction on May 11, the event will include an auction of art work to benefit the work of the society.

    Right now residents at Acropolis Manor sit in a regular chair with a lamp overhead for dental work. Were going to be getting a proper dental chair up there for the residents as well as proper lighting for dental care. It is going to take approximately $30,000 to do, said North Coast Health Improvement Society president Rick McChesney, adding the partnership is a win-win for both groups.

    In the past we have done art auctions and have been successful, but one of the keys to a successful art auction is having the right people in the audience at the right time who are able to spend money for art... What were hoping to bring to the table for the Chamber of Commerce auction is some of the medical community who want to support the art

    auction. The Chamber only recently moved

    the auction from the fall to the spring to create some separation between it and the Rotary Auction in November, and Chamber president Jason Scherr said he is hoping for a successful fundraising event for both of the organizations.

    I am hoping there will be about 200 people at the auction and I think it is going to be a great event, he said.

    Hopefully well get the right people there for the art auction as well.

    Cannery gets $10,000BY MARTINA PERRY PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    CN Rail has donated $10,000 to the North Pacific Cannery to help with restoration work at the historic site in Port Edward.

    This year North Pacific Cannery is celebrating its 125th anniversary, with the facility being established in 1889 and remaining operating until 1980.

    While its too early to say what the funds will be spent on, there are prioritized areas that are in need of stabilization work including the working dock, fish oil tanks and several of the old buildings.

    [The funding] means the ability to move forward and get foundations built that are essential

    to getting our capacities to be a better national historic site that can host more visitors and be more sustainable, said Steve Milum, manager of operations and conservation at North Pacific Cannery.

    Larry Keene, who is on the Port Edward Historic Site board of directors, said getting funding is difficult, so receiving $10,000 from CN is hugely appreciated.

    Its an ongoing process to get the facility back to a situation where we dont have to worry about it falling and losing it forever, he said.

    Approximately $2 million been spent to restore the cannery, with Keene estimating several million dollars more needed.

  • BY SHAUN THOMAS HAIDA GWAII / The Northern View

    Organizer of the controversial ocean fertilization project that took place last summer are accusing the Canadian Government of unconstitutional search and seizure.

    The Haida Salmon Restoration Corp. (HSRC) said Environment Canada officials conducted a 23-hour search of their Vancouver offices on March 23, in breach of the terms of the search

    warrant. During the search, officials seized the entire collection of scientific measurements and data, scientific and instrument journals, scientific reference collections, intellectual property notes and files, legal files, and corporate documents. Searches were also conducted at other locations, including the office of the company that chartered the ship for the project.

    However, HSRC said the government had no right to search the offices as no laws were broken.

    The crown may only create laws and regulation through Parliament or Orders in Council, and that neither has been done by the government in this context, reads a statement from the company.

    No supporting legislation dealing with ocean pasture replenishment and restoration has been enacted by Canada with regard to the London Convention London protocol 2008/2010.

    Legal counsel for the company, Jay Straith, said this should be a straightforward case.

    For Environment Canada to assert by fiat of a single bureaucrat that words from a non-binding international convention have passed directly into Canadian law is simply not true. In such a case it would be the Crown who was in violation of the law, not the company, he said.

    For its part, Environment Canada was not willing to discuss the court action.

    As this case is currently under investigation we cannot comment further, said an Environment Canada spokesperson.

    Money not driving force of Haida development

    BY SHAUN THOMAS HAIDA GWAII / The Northern View

    Haida Gwaii is open for business, provided its done responsibly.

    That was the message Council of the Haida Nation president Peter Lantin delivered to 290 delegates at the National Aboriginal Business Opportunities Conference in Prince Rupert on April 17.

    People have always thought that the Haida are anti-industry. We have never been anti-industry, but we have never been involved in it and we didnt want to see our resources being exploited, Lantin said, adding that money isnt the driving force behind Haida development.

    In our economy, Haida values have to be front and centre. Sustainability has been a catch phrase, but for us it is everything... Our focus isnt on economics, it is on protecting the land for future generations on Haida Gwaii.

    Haida values have to be front and

    centre.-Peter Lantin

    The Haida Nation, however, has gotten heavily involved in business development with reconciliation with the province largely done. Among those endeavours is Taan Forest Products, ownership of fishing lodges on the coast and the purchase of Tlell River House in order to shut down the black bear hunt. Lantin said there is more business opportunities on the horizon, including eco-tourism and potential bio-energy, but any such growth would need to incorporate land preservation.

    We cant do Haida business by buying a company, putting the Haida label on it and doing the same thing thats always been done, he said, noting the Haida name is becoming a brand on its own when it comes to businesses.

    We have to be proud as Haida to call it a Haida company.

    While the Haida have come a long way in economic development, Lantin said there is still a number of things he would like to see happen. Chief among those is training Haida members for the high level jobs of the future.

    If you look at HaiCo, we dont have a Haida CEO, we dont have a Haida CFO and we dont have expertise at that level. We have to get to the point where Haida people are running our companies, he said.

    Another major stumbling block is the lack of a body that can make decisions for the islands as a whole.

    Haida are not the only people on the island, there are municipal governments and unincorporated townships. Right now there is no mechanism in place to make island-wide decisions, he said.

    In order to do Nation-based economics, we have to have that island governance model.

    At the very fringe of British Columbia, at the farthest corner of the country, sits Tlell on Haida Gwaii where the annual Edge of the World Music Festival attracts people from all over to enjoy good music, good people and a good time.

    Were out there, and remote, but its also an edgy place to be, Janet Rigg, Edge of the World festival director, said.

    The unique music festival will once again be taking place at the Tlell Fall Fairgrounds on August 9, 10 and 11 this year.

    While the festival has been around in different forms for almost 30 years, it moved to Tlell in 1999, with half a dozen island music lovers investing their own money in the festival to keep it alive.

    One of those artists was Elizabeth Inkster, who passed away in December 2012 after a short battle with colon cancer.

    She was a longtime contributor to the festival, and a singer and performer on the island as well, Rigg said.

    This years Edge of the World Music Festival will be dedicated to Inksters honour, with the theme of Voice.

    Some voices will echo for all time, as they are so unique among all others. One such voice is that of Elizabeth Inkster, Riggs wrote on the festivals website.

    Each year the festival features a mixture of local talents and off-island musicians, but also has fringe performers, a childrens activity area, and food and merchandise vendors.

    In past years some artists would perform more than once to fill up the time, however this

    year organizers are expecting the festival will extend its hours to ensure theres stage time for everybody.

    It just keeps getting bigger... Its the same festival, its just morphing and evolving, Rigg said.

    Roeland Denooij, artist director of the festival, agrees.

    The festival has a strong reputation in the artist community of being good hosts, and the uniqueness of performing on Haida Gwaii is a big draw, he said.

    Some headlining artists at this years Edge of the World includes Shred Kelly, a five piece folk-funk band known for their clawhammer banjo riffs, Vancouvers T. Nile, an electro-folk artist who has blended traditional folk with vintage and modern electronics and six-piece group The Boom Booms, a Vancouver-based band that Roeland describes as reggae-funk band.

    Additionally, New Zealand artist Mihirangi, dubbed The Queen of Loops, will be also headlining, and TaKaiya Blaney, who Denooij describes as a 12-year-old wonder-child will also be a keynote speaker.

    Denooij expects there to be double the number of artists compared to last year, stating confirmed acts will be announced on the Edge of the World website as they are secured to perform.

    There is some onsite camping, however space and amenities are limited. Festival attendees have other options for camping, including the Misty Meadows Campground across the road, and a number of B and Bs on the island that are listed on the festivals website, at www.edgefestival.com.

    Tickets prices and passes for the whole weekend, or daily admission can be found on the Edge of the World website.

  • The process of buying a home can be intimidating, especially for those men and women who have never before owned their own homes. Nowadays, more homeowners are choosing to get preapproved for mortgages before they begin searching for a home in an effort to make the home-buying process go more smoothly when they find the home for them.

    One of the first things buyers must do when seeking preapproval is find the right mortgage lender. There are many different ways to find a mortgage lender who will fund your home loan. Prospective homeowners would be wise to familiarize themselves with mortgage lenders before beginning the preapproval process.

    The following are a few terms prospective home buyers should know before they begin the process of buying a home.

    * Retail lender: These are lenders who will reach out directly to prospective home buyers. Retail lenders include banks with loan officers in local branches, though many banks are also wholesale lenders.

    * Wholesale lender: A wholesale lender is one who funds a mortgage acquired through a mortgage broker. A

    wholesale lender will buy the mortgage from the broker after the broker has found the customer and processed the loan.

    * Mortgage broker: Mortgage brokers are essentially matchmakers. A mortgage broker will examine a prospective buyers finances and then work to find the buyer a lender who can provide him or her with the best rate and terms. The broker may charge buyers a fee, but the broker will earn the bulk of his or her

    money when the buyer is matched with a lender.

    * Mortgage banker: A mortgage banker will fund the loan initially. But mortgage bankers often sell the loan to secondary lenders. A mortgage banker will borrow money from the bank to fund the initial loan, then repay that bank if and when the loan is sold to a secondary lender.

    * Portfolio lender: A portfolio lender is typically a credit union or community

    bank that uses deposits from its customers to fund loans that it will keep in its portfolios.

    * Loan officer: Loan officers can be very helpful to buyers, helping them through the loan application process and offering advice on finding a mortgage that best meets a customers needs. A loan officer may be referred to as a mortgage consultant or a home loan consultant, and many will earn a commission on the loan once it is finalized.

    BOOK YOUR LAWN MAINTENANCE & THATCHING

    NOW!

    Selling a house is seldom easy, and homeowners are often willing to do whatever it takes to make their home more attractive to prospective buyers. One of the areas sellers typically focus on is the homes landscaping. A well-maintained lawn and garden increases a propertys curb appeal considerably, increasing the chances a buyer will have a strong first impression of the home.

    But homeowners dont need to have a green thumb to ensure their lawn improves curb appeal. The following are a few tricks of the trade savvy sellers can employ to make their home an instant hit when buyers pull up to the curb.

    * Color the landscape. The plants outside a home shouldnt stick out like a sore thumb, but a few splashes of color can make a home more appealing. For the cost of some annuals, which are typically inexpensive, homeowners can turn a drab flower bed into a colorful spot bound to catch a buyers eye.

    * Lay down new layers of mulch. Mulch is not only good for plants, helping them to retain moisture while inhibiting weed germination and growth, but a fresh layer of mulch also adds to a yards aesthetic appeal. Mulch made of wood or bark chips is also slow to decay, so apply a new batch right

    before the For Sale sign is erected and you might not have to apply another batch before selling the home.

    * Prune trees and shrubs. Pruning trees and shrubs is one of the easiest and most effective ways to improve a landscape. Dead branches in shrubs and trees might suggest to buyers that the homeowners werent terribly preoccupied with maintenance, and this might cause them to think twice about making an offer. Stay on top of pruning regardless of what season it is, and be sure to remove any fallen branches from the yard on a regular basis.

    * Clean bird baths and other water features. Water features create a peaceful atmosphere around a property if theyre well maintained. If not, buyers wont see the yard as a sanctuary but rather a place where mosquitoes congregate and odors emanate from algae-filled water. Remove any debris from water features, including leaves and algae, and clean the filters so water is always clear.

    * Invest in a power washer. Buying a power washer might be a tad over the top, but homeowners whose yards are filled with grimy surfaces might find a power washer can work wonders at restoring a homes external appeal. If plants are in pots that are covered in years-old dirt and grime, a power washer

    can restore the pots luster in a matter of minutes. Spray down walkways and even home siding that has fallen victim to dirt and grime over the years.

    * If planting trees, dont go too big. Especially large trees are not always attractive to prospective buyers, who likely wont want sight lines obstructed or wont want to worry about a tree falling and destroying their home during a storm.

    * Address issues with weeds. A prevalent problem with weeds around the property is another situation that some buyers might feel is indicative of neglect.

    Weeds are a pretty simple problem to remedy, so buyers might be correct to assume weeds around the property are there because the homeowner was not concerned with maintenance. Lay mulch around flower beds and gardens to reduce weed growth, and pull any weeds from sidewalks and the driveway. Once weeds are pulled, spray areas that were infested with a weed-treatment product to ensure weeds dont grow back.

    A well-maintained landscape is a great way for men and women hoping to sell their homes to make a strong first impression.

    One chance to make a first impression

    Cleaning water features around the property is one way for homeowners to increase the curb appeal of their home.

    Inside & Out We Have All Your Home Building Needs

    Come See us at the May 4 2013 Home Buyer Trade Show

    The dream of home ownership is one that lives on in Northwest B.C.

    And despite economic struggles of the past, Prince Rupert and area are entering an era of unprecedented growth and prosperity, spurring many into trading up or buying their first home.

    Over the last several years, the real estate market has been turned upside down, and many prospective buyers had begun to question some of the conventional wisdom associated with buying a home. While such skepticism

    might be a healthy attitude, prospective buyers particularly those who have never purchased a home before should avoid the following mistakes that buyers make regardless of whether the market is up or down.

    * Failure to get qualified beforehand. Mortgage qualification is essential when buying a home, as it gives buyers pre-approval for a loan before they make any offers. Making an offer on a home before you know what the bank is willing to lend you is a waste of time for everyone

    involved, including you, the seller and the real estate agents involved. Some agents will not show a home if you dont have a pre-approval. Once pre-approved for a loan, dont take any steps that might put that approval in jeopardy. This includes anything that might drastically alter your credit score.

    * Being blindsided by additional costs. First-time homebuyers, once they have moved into their home, often experience some sticker shock when the additional expenses associated with home ownership arise. These additional expenses include property tax and insurance costs and can be substantial. Even those buying a condominium or co-op should expect monthly maintenance fees even if their new place is brand new and needs no maintenance.

    * Shooting for the moon. The ongoing recession in the U.S. is in part the result of predatory lending that saw banks grant excessive loans to applicants who, in hindsight, could not actually afford all that they were approved to borrow. The result was many people buying homes they could not afford, and then suffering some steep consequences, including foreclosure, when the first mortgage payment came due or the interest rate rose. First-time and even veteran buyers must avoid shooting for the moon when it comes to buying a home, and instead only buy one they know they can afford. What the banks says you can afford isnt

    always the same as what you know you can afford. Only buy a home you know you can afford, regardless of whether the bank has approved you for a larger loan.

    * Pigeonholing yourself into an inadequate living situation. Just like buyers shouldnt go overboard, they also must avoid compromising on the things that are most important to them. For example, many of todays buyers, fully aware of the rash of foreclosures and all the housing horror stories of the last several years, are reticent to commit to a home, and might compromise with a condo or co-op. But if a home is what you really want, and another living situation that mirrors apartment life is going to make you miserable, dont settle for that situation for the sake of security. Doing so could cost you financially, especially when you realize the situation isnt what youd hoped for and look to sell earlier than is ideal.

    * Skimping on the cost of an inspector. An inspector is your last chance to find out if a home is your dream home or a money pit. Even if a house appears to be everything you want, dont close on the sale until the house has been thoroughly inspected.

    The old adage that advises against judging a book by its cover certainly applies to buying a home, and prospective buyers should enlist the services of a qualified inspector before closing on the sale of a home.

    How to finance that home renovation, new or oldAfter years of funny financing

    and few limitations on loans, banks and other lenders have tightened up their lending policies. As a result, homeowners considering a home improvement project might need to look elsewhere to secure financing.

    There are no certainties in the real estate markets. Though statistics suggest marked improvement in home sales over just a few months ago, many homeowners remain weary about selling their home to try to

    move up to something bigger and better. The National Association of Home Builders says many people are choosing to stay put in their homes and remodel or make renovations to transform the house into something more comfortable.

    While there are many worthwhile home renovation projects, the NAHB recommends projects that bring your home up to par with the neighbors. It doesnt pay to transform your home into the most expensive on the street -- unless you plan to live there

    for the rest of your life. Real estate experts recommend that a remodeling investment increases the value of your house by no more than 10 to 15 percent above the median sales price in your neighborhood.

    When it comes time to finance a remodel or renovation, you may not know where to start. Credit restrictions on home mortgages that have troubled many would-be buyers have also plagued individuals looking to finance home improvements. However, homeowners hoping to

    finance a project do have options, and not all of them require stellar credit ratings.

    * Borrow against a retirement plan. Many retirement plans allow plan members to take out a portion of the savings to put toward a home loan. This does not mean you are taking money out of the account permanently. Rather, you are borrowing against yourself, with repayment necessary in a certain time frame.

    Home Buyers Guide

    Because these loans often offer very low interest rates, and essentially the interest is being paid back to you, they might be a good option for men and women who cannot secure a traditional loan.

    However, if you have been laid off, there may be a shorter repayment period. Also, the interest on these loans is not tax-deductible.

    * Borrow against other investments. CDs, bonds or mutual funds can provide the collateral you need and earn you a lower interest rate. Fixed-income investments are more stable options to borrow against, as their value wont have a chance to decline.

    * Apply for a home equity loan. Many people have heard of a home equity loan, and it is usually the first choice when borrowing funds for renovations.

    Essentially a home equity loan is taking out a second mortgage on your home to pay for the work you want to have done, which is based on the equity, or the difference between the homes fair market value and the outstanding balance of all liens on the property. The interest on these loans is tax-deductible, which can make this

    financing option quite popular.* Secure a home equity line of

    credit. A home equity line of credit, or HELOC, is another type of home equity loan.

    Instead of receiving a lump sum to use toward renovations like you would with a traditional home equity loan, a HELOC is sort of a credit card type scenario based on the equity in your home. You are given a line of credit, against which you can buy items. This is good for intermittent needs, when one large sum is not needed. HELOCs have a draw period, during which the borrower can use the credit, and a repayment period, during which it must be repaid. HELOCs generally have lower mortgage fees at the start and are generally subject to the same tax incentives as regular home equity loans.

    * Consider refinancing. Interest rates on mortgages are at historic lows. You may qualify to do a cash-out refinance, where you borrow against the value of your home and create an entirely new mortgage at the lower rate. Although you will start your mortgage all over from day 1 and have to pay closing fees, this type of refinancing can be more advantageous to homeowners with significant equity

    in their homes.* Apply for a government-

    sponsored loan. The government may offer programs aimed at helping individuals who are underwater on

    their home loans borrow money to make necessary improvements. While the funding cannot be used to purchase luxury items, such as a swimming pool, it can be used for necessities.

    Home Buyers Guide

    Find an agent, then the houseBuying a home is often a difficult

    thing to do. The stress of making such a big financial commitment is a struggle for many home buyers, whether they have purchased a home in the past or are doing so for the first time.

    One way to make the process a lot less anxiety-ridden is to work with a real estate agent you can trust. Those who have previously purchased a home might already have a strong relationship with a real estate agent. But for those moving out of their current location or buying for the first time, finding the right real estate agent requires some effort. Those in the market for an agent to help navigate the home buying process should consider the following tips.

    * Find a buyers agent. Real estate agents are often affiliated with sellers instead of buyers. This means their primary goal is to help the seller and not the buyer. When shopping around for a real estate agent, ask companies about their buyers agents. Buyers should always have someone with their interests in mind, and not the interests of the sellers.

    * Find an agent first, then a property. Many times homes remain listed online or in home for sale brochures even if they are under contract or sold. These homes are often luxurious and appealing

    to a wide array of prospective buyers, and some agencies use them to attract customers. While this isnt a typical bait and switch, it is a way real estate agencies get customers in the door. It is important to find a real estate agent before looking through home listings. This allows the buyer to choose their agent based on merit and not due to the potentially glitzy houses he or she may have listed previously.

    * Find someone with a track record. Real estate can be an exciting and financially rewarding industry in which to work. As a result, lots of people want to be real estate agents, even though few succeed and last a long time. When interviewing real estate agents, inquire about their history in the business. A more experienced agent will make things far less stressful and easier, and a long career indicates they are good at what they do.

    A real estate agent with a long history in the business will likely be a full-time agent as well. Prospective buyers should look for a full-time agent, which is not as common as some buyers might think. Many agents work part-time, and buyers could receive less attention as a result.

    * Dont place too much emphasis on agency size. Real estate agencies come in all shapes and sizes. When it comes to

    ability, the size of the agency should not factor in. A smaller independent agency can be just as qualified and reliable as one of the major franchise agencies. Buyers who find someone they trust should go with that person, regardless of how big or small their agency is.

    * Get a referral. Friends and family members who have been through the buying process before might be great

    resources. Buyers looking in Town X who have friends or family already living there should consult those friends or family and ask for any agent referrals. Those relocating because of work should ask their company to refer an agent. Chances are companies have relocated employees in the past and might have a strong relationship with an agency in town.

    The key to making the home-buying experience much less stressful is finding an agent you can trust.

    Buying a home can be one of the most rewarding experiences in a persons life. It also can be one of the most stressful.

    New homeowners are faced with many expenses after buying a home, and the holiday season is a great time to help them out with a thoughtful gift for the place they now call home. The following are some great gift ideas for the new homeowner on your holiday shopping list.

    * Furniture: Ask the homeowner what room needs furnishing and offer to purchase one or more pieces for the space.

    * How-to books: Owning a home presents many opportunities for repairs and renovations. Oftentimes, this is a homeowners initial foray into do-it-yourself projects, so consider giving a library of instructional books that walk homeowners through some basics, like plumbing, electrical work or basic construction.

    * Personalized key chains: A new home means a new set of keys to the front door. Have key chains monogrammed and gift with a bottle of champagne to toast the new residence.

    * Welcome mat: Welcome mats can be customized with the owners last name, and some customizing services also can print an image on a door mat or a quirky saying.

    * Door knocker: Although door bells have replaced door knockers for practical use, a nice metal door knocker still makes a decorative statement on the front door. Have the door knocker engraved with the family name.

    * Gift certificate: A new home means new projects large and small. Homeowners will be making frequent trips to the home improvement center, and such trips can get costly. A gift card will help lessen that financial burden.

    * Home warranty: Third-party companies sell home warranties that can cover the costs of repairs on major home systems. To new homeowners, the peace of mind of knowing the HVAC system or a major appliance can be repaired or replaced at minimal cost could make this gift invaluable.

    * Portrait: Give the gift of memories by setting up a photo session with a photographer that enables the new homeowners to have a print made that can be hung up and enjoyed.

    * Tool gift basket: Homeowners can always use nails, screws, hammers, picture-hanging kits, painters tape, and the other odds and ends that go into making repairs.

    * Linens: Guests might be stopping by to see the new house, so a gift of sheets for the guest room or hand towels will ensure the place is stocked for anyone who drops by.

    * Dining out certificates: People who have just moved into a home may be so busy with projects that they dont have time to make sit-down meals. Therefore, a gift card to a favorite restaurant can provide a welcome respite from takeout.

    * Security system: Homeowners who want to protect their new asset may appreciate a home security system.

    * Money: Buying a home is an expensive endeavor, and new homeowners may be feeling the pinch of an overextended budget. Sometimes cash makes the most thoughtful gift.

    New homeowners are faced with many situations that can be both exciting and stressful as they move into new homes. Many gifts can make the process of settling in that much easier.

    Furniture or linens make a great gift for the new homeowner.
