    Re:Build Rupert to tackle

    infrastructure

    BY KEVIN CAMPBELLPRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    The City of Prince Rupert has heard the publics outcry concerning potholes, cracked sidewalks and derelict roads and city council is ready and willing to address every single one in the city.

    Thats the theory and developed plan behind Re:Build Rupert, a new initiative developed by Mayor Lee Brain, council and the engineering d e p a r t m e n t designed to identify, fix, replace or generally improve every asset and piece of infrastructure that the city owns over the next 10 20 years and beyond.

    We have been We have been stagnant for stagnant for

    Contract awarded for Watson Island demolitionBY KEVIN CAMPBELLPRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    Watson Island has found its industrial grim reaper.

    More than a few things may be headed to the mechanical afterlife through the decommissioning of a very large portion of what was once the Watson Island Pulp Mill. Its assets will be removed by NRI Group, an Ontario-based asset management firm familiar with paper mill sites throughout North America.

    We are pleased to be able to move forward with the decommissioning of the pulp mill, which will enable the site to be repurposed so that Watson Island can again contribute to the economy of Prince Rupert, said Mayor Lee Brain last week.

    Currently NRI Group, who earlier signed the demolition contract with the city, is in the planning stages with Stantec, an engineering

    consultant, to determine which portions of Watson Island will be decommissioned as part of a complete two-year process that will begin on the island immediately.

    Right now theyre doing preliminary work on budgets and estimates and that type of thing and what the plan is exactly going to look like, said the mayor.

    To whom the assets may be sold to and what will be retained is also part of the planning process.

    There are some areas that wont be affected by the decommissioning and have been identified as being in good

    standing condition, such as office buildings, but the majority of the site will be decommissioned.

    What the city would like to see happen with that land is still up in the air due to a legal dispute between WatCo, a wholly-owned company of Colonial Coal, and the city regarding who owns the land.

    We still have a certificate of pending litigation (CPL) on the island through our legal claim with WatCo ... Basically until that CPL is removed, we cant really sell the island right now, said Mayor Brain.

    Its a very attractive piece of property. It has huge strategic value for the region. Its got a wharf access, rail access and truck access. If the site were to be cleaned up and flattened and ready for industrial use, we believe that it could really contribute to Prince Ruperts economy, get the tax base expanded again and be a really good compliment to other industries that are trying to settle here.

    20-year plan looks at $288 million deficit

  • A2 Northern View August 12, 2015A2 Northern View August 12, 2015 www.thenorthernview.comNews

    Trade is building stronger communities.The Port of Prince Rupert is growing opportunities and prosperity by

    connecting the communities of northern BC. Last year, port activity was

    directly responsible for the equivalent of 3,060 permanent full-time jobs.

    Watch and share our video tribute to the workers and families of BCs

    gateway industry: youtube.com/rupertport.

    It [looks at] the whole picture of the town in terms of how much it would cost to get the town back to a point where things arent kind of crumbling in nature, said Mayor Brain last week.

    It wont be easy and it wont be cheap.Re:Build Rupert will tackle a $288

    million infrastructure deficit that includes road work, bridge upkeep, water dam and water line upkeep and the biggest single expense of all an estimated $150 million water treatment plant that the city is being mandated to build.

    Right now we have the storm water and waste water in one pipe that goes into the ocean. Wed have to separate every line, so wed have to duo off every line and then youd have a waste water line and a storm water line, like other cities have, said Mayor Brain.

    That would require us to basically replace every pipe in town and twin them off.

    The deficit will be addressed through various funding means as they present themselves in the coming years.

    The city has already tackled the deficit starting this year through an additional $1 million into road infrastructure on top of the existing budget, a $4.4 million upgrade to the water lines through provincial and federal investment announced earlier in

    July and a Fraser Street revamp that fixes crumbling infrastructure beneath the ground that was labelled a high priority project for awhile now, said the mayor.

    Thats about $7 million invested in infrastructure in the community and probably the biggest amount of infrastructure investment in who knows how long now. So were actually being very aggressive in tackling the infrastructure problem that we have over the next 10 to 20 years. Its not going to happen overnight, but were attracting grants, were working well with the province, weve got developments coming on the table that have the potential to help fund a lot of this stuff, so were getting excited. [With Re:Build Rupert], council wanted to say to the community: Look, were being proactive and were ready to rebuild the town, said the mayor.

    The citys engineering department has drafted a 20-year program, identifying priority projects that will be addressed. As each project is funded, it will appear on the citys annual report for that year and within the budget, though the city is hesitant to release the list all at once, should immediate problems delay funding for a project.

    Right now the engineering department has mapped out the community in terms of which years theyre going to try to attach to what ... but in case something changes by accident lets say a water main bursts

    and we have to fix that the funding [falls behind], added Mayor Brain.

    The city will, however, publish a chart where people can track each facet of the deficit that explains how much road replacement will cost, as well as the bridges, water treatment and more.

    Even a branding initiative will accompany Re:Build Rupert where, similar to the federal governments Canadas Economic Action

    Plan signage displayed at major projects all across Canada, the city will display each project as part of Re:Build Rupert.

    I think people in the town want to see the community move forward and weve been very stagnant for the last 15 20 years. This is kind of putting some action to the fact that, yes, we absolutely cannot sit and not watch the town develop. So thats kind of what this program signals, said Brain.

    Clifford White elected

    Gitxaala ChiefBY SHAUN THOMAS KITKATLA / The Northern View

    The Gitxaala Nation has a new Chief Councillor following Wednesdays byelection.

    Clifford White was elected as the new Chief among the five candidates seeking office, receiving 120 of the 356 votes cast, equal to 33.7 per cent of the popular vote.

    White received 21 more votes than runner-up Merle Bolton, who finished with 99 votes.

    Coming in third was Conrad Lewis, who was elected Chief Councillor during the last election by 13 votes. However, several challenges to the election result were launched, citing improper handling of the ballots and a ballot featuring the option of a candidate who had withdrawn, and a new election was ordered by the Gitxaala Justice Tribunal. The case had got to federal court, where the justice agreed that the concerns warranted a byelection for the Gitxaala Nation.

    Melvin Tolmie Sr. finished fourth in the byelection with 41 votes and Alexa Gamble rounded out the list of candidates with 28 votes.

    As Banks Island Gold awaits word on whether or not it can resume operations at the mine following a pollution spill, a financial update from the company raises questions about whether or not the company will remain financially viable.

    On July 30 trading of the companys shares was halted at the request of Banks Island Gold and on Aug. 4 the company announced it had suspended all operations at the Yellow Giant Mine effective July 31.

    The company ... will put the mine into care and maintenance until permitting and regulatory issues at the project are resolved and the company has sufficient working capital to re-commence operations, read a statement.

    The Yellow Giant Mine provided direct employment for over 100 people and indirect employment for many more, whose families depend on the mine operating. Further information on suspension of operations will be released when available.

    In that same announcement, Banks

    Island Gold revealed some financial information and warned that more money will be needed if the mine is to continue regardless of regulatory approval.

    As a result of the subsequent events ... resulting production delays, uncertain timelines for successful permit amendments and current working capital deficiency, the company needs to seek immediate financing. Inability to do so at terms acceptable to the company and in a timely manner would cast significant doubt on the companys ability to continue as a going concern, reads a statement from Banks Island Gold.

    Meanwhile, North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice weighed in on the issue, noting she has been following it closely since a mine worker reported concerns to NDP MLA Norm MacDonald on July 4.

    I have contacted the Gitxaala First Nation and have attempted to contact the company to get their views on a truly perplexing story, she said, alluding to earlier reports that the mine was continuing to operate despite the shut down order.

    My primary concern is representing the interests of my constituents, the Gitxaala Nation, the mine workers and those concerned about potential environmental damage. Conflicting media reports have made this a difficult story to assess fully and I will continue to do that work so that the North Coast is effectively represented in Victoria.

    According to stockhouse.com, shares in Banks Island Gold fell from a high of 52 cents on Aug. 18, 2014 to just five cents on July 30, 2015.

    More financing needed to continue

    NWCC launches Academy programBY KEVIN CAMPBELLPRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    Goal-oriented high school students in Prince Rupert will have a chance to achieve those goals sooner than expected with the launch of a new program by Northwest Community College (NWCC).

    The Academy program is a brand new initiative by the Prince Rupert campus designed to give secondary school students the option to take university-level courses.

    The Academy at NWCC is ideal for those high-achieving students looking for a high-quality opportunity to learn in an environment that meets their unique needs, said Dean of

    Instruction, Tanya Rexin.This is the ideal fit for students

    with specialized interests who may wish to register for independent directed studies and receive high school credits for areas they are passionate about, such as fine arts, music and more.

    A large portion of the curriculum for any Grade 11 or 12 student wishing to enrol is online and students receive a laptop as part of their tuition cost.

    A cap for the program is set at 25 and, unlike typical university programs, enrolment for The Academy is allowed at any point during the year, though students are encouraged to apply early if theyre

    interested.The supported learning

    environment provides students with a low student-teacher ratio, giving students significant academic support, said Rexin.

    The program is part of a recent push by NWCC to attract northwest students fresh out of high school and encourage them to attend one or two years of college education closer to home before heading off to a university elsewhere.

    Every course offered within The Academy is taught by qualified B.C. teachers and meets all provincial learning outcomes.

    The program, encompassing many subjects, starts in September.

    Recycling pickup coming to

    Lax Kwalaams

    BY SHAUN THOMAS LAX KWALAAMS / The Northern View

    The Village of Lax Kwalaams will soon have curbside recycling pickup.

    An update to residents posted on the Bands website notes that work has begun on a solid waste transfer station, expected to be complete next April, that will bring recycling to the community and result in the closure of the current garbage dump.

    A new waste transfer station will be constructed to provide interim storage of the garbage from community. The solid waste collected from our community will be transferred by barge at regular frequency to the City of Prince Rupert Landfill for disposal, read the update.

    The project will include a recycling program that will be introduced to the community to divert recyclables to the Skeena Queen Charlotte Regional District recycling facility in Prince Rupert. In addition to the regular garbage pickup, separated recyclables will also be collected weekly at the homes.

    Other projects on the go in Lax Kwalaams include a new effluent pump station to handle sewage that will be complete in the Spring, a new fuel dispensing float that should be complete by the end of the year and the completion of the Academy of Lax Kwalaams in time for the new school year.

    INAUGURAL

  • BY SHAUN THOMASPRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    When Herb Pond arrived in Prince Rupert from Vancouver, the young husband and father had his eyes set on a career path that included much larger cities than the small community on the North Coast.

    I came for a bit of a career move thinking I would be here for a year or two, he said, noting his story is not unlike that of many residents who call Prince Rupert home.

    I was coming for a job with Canadian Airlines. At the time I was a young airline manager and my next stop would have been an international assignment likely in Hong Kong, Tokyo or Amsterdam.

    But for the self-professed Air Force brat who was born in France but whose youth included stops in Ottawa, Washington DC and Winnipeg Prince Rupert grew from a stopover point to a home for the family in the course of that year. Arriving with four young children and his wife Sandy, Herbs high school sweetheart who he married in 1978, the North Coast offered many benefits that could never have been experienced in major urban areas.

    One was the ability to get to and from places in minutes. When I first moved to Prince Rupert that is one of the things that really stood out. I could not believe that if I left my office at 4:30 I was home by 4:32 and I could go home every day for lunch. If the kids had something going on for school I could see it and I didnt disappear early in the morning and come home late in the evening totally exhausted. My kids also knew where I worked and could drop by any time they wanted, he recalls.

    Another one of the things that we saw immediately when we moved to Prince Rupert is that it is so small people dont get segregated. In Vancouver people come together by ethnic communities while in Prince Rupert our children were going to school with students of every ethnic and economic background. I just feel like it was a place that equipped them socially.

    Almost from the start, Herb began receiving invitations to get involved with service clubs such as the Rotary Club of Prince Rupert, with business groups such as the Chamber of Commerce, with city entities such as the Economic Development Commission and with several other organizations around town. Like many before him, Herb recalls, he jumped in headfirst to contribute to the community he calls home.

    I have a chance from time-to-time to talk to youth about why they should volunteer. Its a great chance

    to serve, no question, but you get just as much back. People bring you into an organization and tell you to go wild with whatever your skills are. You have ideas and people let you try them, he said of his involvement in the community.

    Part of it as well is the people you get to work with. You get to build friendships and relationships and it can be as much fun to get together on a project as it is to get together socially. There is a lot of camaraderie that comes from working together to get something done.

    While still working with the airline, Herb had many conversations with the manager of Quadra Travel, the business next door. At the time the manager of Quadra Travel was none other than long-time Mayor Peter Lester, who suggested Herb become involved in municipal politics. Little did the people of Prince Rupert know the role Herb would play in the future of Prince Rupert governance, serving one term as councillor, unsuccessfully seeking the office of the mayor once and then serving back-to-back terms as the citys leader.

    It will probably be some of the best working experience of my life. It was a very challenging time and I knew I was jumping in at the darkest of the dark days. It was a lot of dealing with families who were facing real challenges and doing everything we could to promote and attract opportunities to Prince Rupert, recalls Herb, noting that it was during that time that he experienced the highlight of his time in Prince Rupert being on stage to open Fairview Terminal on the day of his 50th birthday.

    It was an absolutely amazing time and I am absolutely grateful to the people of Prince Rupert for allowing me to be their mayor during that time ... I dont ever expect, in my life, to top that experience, but I knew when it was done it was done. I actually had to go through a bit of mourning when I stepped down after six years, but I knew it was time.

    While Herb may not have been in the mayors chair, he continued to be involved in the community, including lending his distinct voice to the Prince Rupert Rampage as the announcer for many of the teams home games.

    Then, a few years ago, Herb was approached by a new company looking to the North Coast for a multi-

    billion dollar development. After doing some research, Herb became the community relations adviser for BG Canada.

    Its a continuation of all the other things I had been doing ... we were both basically putting our reputations in each others hands. I told them I plan to live in Prince Rupert for the long haul and wouldnt be involved with a project I didnt think was for the community and they were saying they thought they knew who I was but were trusting me with their brand. They have all been what they represented themselves to be and more, he said.

    Now a proud member of the Eagle Clan after being given a name by Chief Campbell and with his children grown up and living around the province, Herb said he and Sandy continue to love life on the North Coast and have no intention of living elsewhere.

    I am always open to possibilities because it was those possibilities that brought me to Prince Rupert, but Sandy and I have no plan to leave Prince Rupert. She is actively engaged in the high school and education system and I love what I get to do and where we both get to do it, said Herb.

    At this point in time, our future lies in Prince Rupert.

  • Like many others around the country on Thursday night I decided to take in the federal leaders debate. What I saw and heard was two hours of

    people who want to be the Prime Minister of Canada bickering back and forth about who did what and how or who would do any number of terrible things if they were elected. There were a lot of unnecessary interjections,

    a lot of accusation about being dishonest and a lot of references to past government actions, both provincial and federal for as much sense as that makes.

    What I didnt hear was a lot of passion, monotone delivery would be a more than accurate description, or firm commitments and promises about what the different parties

    would bring to Parliament or prioritize for the next four years.

    Pundits and people across the country were trying to pick a winner - good luck with that. Nobody stood out, nobody hit a home run and the whole thing was fairly uninspired.

    Fortunately for the party leaders, this first debate means absolutely nothing. For all intents and purposes it could have been a question period in the House of Commons for all the good it did.

    That may sound harsh, but the reality is that people will have completely forgotten about all of the accusations and all of the barbs exchanged during Thursday nights debate by the time they head to the polls. After all, when this paper comes out there will be more than 60 days between now and the Oct. 19 vote.

    Between now and then more important things will grab the nations attention before attention is brought back to the campaign trail.

    Make no mistake about it, this is going to be a long and extremely tedious election campaign.

    Hopefully this will be something future leaders can learn from and a 70-plus day campaign will never be seen again.

    A6 August 12, 2015A6 August 12, 2015

    Who won? Who cares?

    The first, and perhaps the only complete English-language debate in this long federal election campaign has helped define the issues, and the non-issues.

    Im not going to try to tell you who won or came out swinging, because this is not a sporting event. If youre paying attention in August, bless you, and you probably have a favourite already.

    First, lets deal with Prime Minister Stephen Harpers diabolical scheme to extend the length of the formal election period. This, according to national pundits, is an extension of his evil plot to attract more financial supporters than the other parties, and spend the money. In other words, its a non-issue and any opponent who dwells on it looks like a whiner.

    This is the first election in modern Canadian history to follow a four-year schedule. National pundits spent months telling us Harper was going to use a loophole in his own election law to call a spring vote before the economy tanked. Didnt happen, and now the Conservatives are rightly under scrutiny about their economic management. Incumbent manipulation of election timing is over, and thats good.

    Scheduled elections by their nature create longer campaigns, as demonstrated in B.C. and the United States. So they should be conducted under formal campaign rules, which limit the noise of public sector unions and other special interests.

    Another non-issue is the non-existent deficit and

    recession that supposedly grips Canada. On actual results, there is a slim surplus, and if a big if Saudi Arabia continues to depress world oil prices, there may be a modest deficit by next spring.

    The Bank of Canadas recent move to devalue the dollar has already produced a rebound in exports and tourism, which any government would appreciate. Have you tried to find parking at the mall lately?

    Of particular interest to B.C. voters is the contest between NDP leader Thomas Mulcair and Green

    Party leader Elizabeth May. May used what may be her only national debate appearance to press Mulcair to oppose the TransMountain pipeline expansion project before hearings are complete.

    Mindful of Adrian Dixs disastrous 2013 decision to do the same in B.C., Mulcair insisted he would wait for the federal review, even though he considers it to be inadequate.

    Harper was forced to admit that his long effort to persuade U.S. President Barack Obama to approve the Keystone XL pipeline has failed, and the project will have to wait until Obama leaves office next year.

    Trudeau set the stage for the contest in Quebec, which B.C. voters can only watch from afar to see if it once again decides the shape of their federal government. Trudeau pushed Mulcair on his cynical bid to court the separatist voters who suddenly swung to Jack Laytons NDP in 2011.

    Like petroleum prices, its beyond our control.

    Port access a plus for lumber industrySituated halfway be-tween the Port of Prince Rupert and Prince George, the town of Smithers is the hub of the Bulkley Valley region.

    Since the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway reached the north coast more than 100 years ago, Smithers has remained a logistically important com-munity to the railroad industry. The Canadian National Railway Sta-tion in Smithers is recognized as one of Canadas Historic Places. Asthe oldest building in the community it signifies the economic impact of railway development in Canada. Today, the communitys forestry indus-try relies on rail to bring increasing volumes of local lumber to the Port of Prince Rupert and on to Asian markets.

    OJ Egan is a quality control supervisor at West Frasers Pacific In-land Resources, a sawmill that has been one of the largest employers in the community for decades. Born and raised in Smithers, OJ and his brother Bill are both second-generation mill workers who enjoyed many years of work alongside their father before he retired several years ago.

    OJs formal career with West Fraser began more than 20 years ago after completing high school, starting out at a base job rate and working his way through the production line.

    The opportunity to build a long-term career starting from an en-try-level position is still there for todays workforce. Currently more than 40 of Pacific Inland Resources 240 staff are over the age of 55, which means that dozens of positions will open up as employees look to retire in the next few years.

    You can build a great career here, and with the aging workforce the younger guys and girls coming in have a real opportunity, said OJ. Were even busier now than five years ago, and you can see how West Fraser is really adapting to changes in the industry. And one of the ben-efits of being close to Prince Rupert and the port is that we were able to take advantage of the Chinese market in the American downturn.

    Roughly 30% of the mills production now moves through Prince Ru-perts Fairview Container Terminal and on to the markets of Asia. That figure is poised to increase as softwood exports to China grow to record volumes and the country begins to embrace the use of higher-grade lumber for wood-frame construction and interior finishing.

    In addition to the opportunities created by a rebounding forest sec-tor, with new development at the Port of Prince Rupert the next gen-eration of Smithereens will also have the ability to pursue rewarding careers in areas such as resource extraction and transportation and lo-gistics without leaving home.

    Like their father before them, OJ Egans kids show an interest in his work, and his oldest son is currently taking advantage of West Frasers weekend clean-up program for high school students.

    This industry has given me the opportunity to raise four kids quitecomfortably, says OJ. I live in a place where 20 minutes from my back door is everything you could possibly want to do. I know Ive been for-tunate to have a great run over the last 20 years, and with everything thats happening right now between here and Prince Rupert, Im hope-ful my kids will too.

    We need to think globallyEditor:Im considering the question - what does the

    proposed and imminent Petronas LNG exporting terminal mean for Prince Rupert?

    The part of the plant that compresses and cools the gas before it is loaded on the container ship will require in the design several gas-fired electrical generating units each producing in the 100 megawatt range.

    When a one kilowatt tea kettle operates for one hour and the power is supplied from a gas fired generating plant, 1.22 lbs of CO2 is emitted to produce the power used (US Energy Administration tables).

    One megawatt is 1,000 times more - 100 megawatt 100,000 times greater.

    Doing the math A 100 megawatt gas-fired plant emits 1.22 X 100,000 = 122,000 pounds of CO2 in one hour.

    The Petronas Terminal will be using 200 megawatts to up to 500 megawatts depending on the volume of gas being cooled and compressed.

    Five times 122,000 = 610,000 pounds in one

    hour. In 24 hours thats 14,640,000 lbs.Over 14 million pounds of greenhouse gases

    also containing a percentage of nitrite oxides and sulfur dioxide will be spewed into the air column every day. With a southeast wind, this enormous volume of pollution will sweep up the channel, over Dodge Cove and into Prince Rupert causing public health to deteriorate.

    In a northwest or westerly wind the pollution will push up the Skeena valley to Terrace and beyond. It will elevate acidity in the land and water, further impacting plant and aquatic life.

    Is this what we want for Prince Rupert and the surrounding area ?

    In this time when the effects of global warming are more and more apparent?

    When fish stocks and other species are declining at an alarming rate?

    When global conditions may require local areas to rely on producing their own food?

    We have to stop this madness.Charlie Bland

    Taxpayers pay for green B.C.Editor:Ever since Gordon Campbell neutered the

    B.C. NDP stance on all things green by subjecting taxpayers to the Carbon Tax in 2005, the B.C. Liberals have claimed the high ground in the war on carbon dioxide.

    Buried in the details on the carbon tax is the reality that B.C. pays more out in industry carve outs and subsidies than the tax generates in revenue. What was an act of electoral genius on the part of Campbell has become a fiscal albatross around the neck of Premier Clark.

    B.C. generates all of its electricity by hydro, and provincial CO2 emissions are a rounding error in total naturally occurring atmospheric CO2. Clark is nonetheless forging ahead with a more confiscatory scheme to tax us to prosperity in the name of Gaia.

    B.C.s Climate Leadership Plan is the B.C. Liberals new method to tax us more, under the guise of planet saving. Despite average global temperatures remaining unchanged for 19 years, as overall CO2 concentrations rise, B.C.s Liberals see CO2 pricing as a politically risk free revenue source.

    To launch B.C. into a leadership role when it comes to cooling the earth, Clark has assembled a team to provide the Liberals cover for the massive

    energy rate increases that are sure to follow.The team reads like a whos who from a

    pipeline protest, with Matt Horne from the leftist Pembina Institute and Tzeporah Berman, a long time Greenpeace activist and Broadbent Institute fellow and eco hero.

    The fix is in. Like it or not B.C. is on its way to becoming a climate change leader and the taxpayers of B.C. are lucky enough to pay for this distinction.

    For the honour of leading on climate, B.C. taxpayers will pay even more at the pump, more to heat and light their homes, more to institutional entrepreneurs in big wind, solar and bio-mass and more to fund questionable carbon trading schemes like the Pacific Carbon Trust.

    No student from B.C.s high school class of 2015 has experienced any global warming in their lifetime. Both the arctic and antarctic ice caps are at record extents and thickness. Polar bears are thriving around the arctic. One need not wear his galoshes in downtown Vancouver despite Al Gores sea level rise predictions. None of the catastrophic climate change models have been proven correct. Yet B.C. is doomed lead on climate.

    Right on the heels of a joint venture partnership with Securiguard, Coast Tsimshian Enterprises has entered into another agreement with an electrical services company.

    Coast Tsimshian Enterprises, comprised of the Metlakatla and Lax Kwalaams Bands, and Tarpon Energy Services Ltd. announced the partnership on Aug. 4 to create CT Tarpon Electrical Services. With the agreement signed, the company said it will be pursuing electrical, instrumentation, construction

    and fabrication work related to port operations, mining and oil and gas development in the Northwest.

    CT Tarpon Electrical Services is strategically positioned in an area of tremendous potential economic growth. It is also an excellent complement to The Electrician, who was involved in

    the construction of the original port at Prince Rupert, said Tarpon Energy Services Ltd president Rick Wickland.

    Through our new partnership with CTE, we can enjoy a good and beneficial relationship well into the future that will continue to support the local economies and the communities of Metlakatla and Lax Kwalaams.

    For Metlakatla Chief Harold Leighton and Lax Kwalaams Mayor Garry Reece, this partnership provides further opportunities for band members.

    I appreciate the opportunity that our partnership with Tarpon Energy Services represents. I look forward to many successful years of moving the bar ever higher in our mutual goals to improve our economic circumstances, said Leighton.

    What is So Special about Flora Bank

    Coastal ecology instructor Pouyan Mahboubi asked experts to mark amap to show the important areas rich with many different kinds of marine life. Everyone marked the spots with red on a map of the coast, from below Hartley Bay to above Lax Kwalaams. The final map has a glowing red blob spilling over and covering Flora Bank.

    When PNW LNG (Petronas) said theywanted to build on that very spot, people told the rest of us how special it is.

    Many gillnet fishermen explained that rich salmon runs funnel in alongside it. Smiles, stories of fishing friends and picnics on Kitson Island were shared along with the fact;

    adult salmon often come in the same way they go out. Small salmon, smolts, use that area for feeding when they first come out of the Skeena River.

    We heard about the many other species there; harbour porpoises, halibut andsmelt Smelt are small

    feed fish like the herring and eulochan.

    Several worried biologists gave estimates of how many millions (up to 300 million) small hungry salmon arrive at that special spot each spring. Flora Bank eelgrass (sea grass) beds use nutrients from the Skeena and sunlight from the sky to feed them all.

    Each blade of eelgrass is a small food factory-Dept. of Ecology WA. Diatoms, bacteria, and detritus (decaying plant and animal matter) gather on eelgrass leaves. This detritus provides food for many invertebrates Billions of tiny little shrimp and others feed on these. The late Heber Clifton warned over a decade ago: If we hurt the sea grass there wont be shrimp to feed the sockeye.

    Flora Bank is so special- It not only has a very large eelgrass bed - It is in the perfect location to feed millions of hungry Skeena salmon smolts.

    With a decline in the global coal market due to an oversupply of product, financial figures released by Ridley Terminals Inc. show what impact the drop is having for the North Coast terminal.

    During the first quarter of 2015, ending March 31, Ridley Terminals experienced a net operating loss of $2.979 million compared to a net operating profit of $4.84 million in the first quarter of 2014. The $7.819 million change comes on the heels of a 49.23 per cent drop in rail unloading volumes and a 43.07 per cent drop in ship-loading volumes.

    Revenue for the terminal fell by $8.11 million compared to the first quarter of 2014, with throughput revenue dropping by $8.5 million to sit at $9.962 million. The number of ships loaded at the terminal during the first quarter of 2015 was 14 compared to 20 in the first quarter of 2015 while the average vessel cargo volumes dropped 19,000 tonnes to 83,000 tonnes.

    At the same time, the company

    reduced its operating costs by $291,000, from $14.267 million in the first three months of 2014 to $13.976 million during the same time period in 2015. While salaries, professional services, equipment operations and maintenance and utility costs created savings of $868,000, the lease payment made to the Prince Rupert Port Authority increased by $440,000. The Prince Rupert Port Authority collects payment based on coal volumes, but when that amount collected through shipping volumes falls under the minimum payment guaranteed by the agreement RTI must top up the payment.

    According to management, the

    outlook for the terminal continues to be one of challenges.

    In 2014, oversupply in the overseas market for coal resulted in greater cost pressure on North American producers. This trend has continued to strengthen in 2015, with no return to previously experienced market conditions forecasted for North America in the short term, read the report, noting the far-term picture could be brighter.

    Despite this outlook for producers, RTI remains well positioned to capture future growth as it is one of only a few Pacific west coast terminals providing terminal bulk services for the export coal market.

    The Northern View archivesRidley Terminals lost almost $3 million in the fi rst three months of 2015.

    You cant win em all,A seriously depleted Prince Rupert Football Club

    United (PRFC) team made the trek to Terrace in early August for the citys annual Riverboat Days festival and Vernon Baker summarized the squads weekend with a short, but apt, conclusion.

    Approximately five regular PRFC members took to the pitch against Smithers, Kitsegas and the Terrace Young Guns and picked up the remaining stragglers from the side of the pitch to fill out the remaining holes in their roster.

    Barker was joined by forward Matt Anderson, goalkeeper Simon Ruperto and a few more Rupertites who, despite their lack of numbers due to regulars having to work, attend funerals or be at other engagements, performed quite admirably against some of the tournaments top opponents.

    We were missing some starters and we were basically trying to hold off until Sunday [Day 3] when everybody was finished their work, said Barker.

    PRFC never made it to the third day after being eliminated in an unlucky draw that saw the team play two straight games on Aug. 1 the only team having to do so.

    We werent equipped to knock out three straight teams, so we were out early, said the defenceman.

    Winning their first game on July 31 against Smithers 3-1, the team then prepared to face the Kitsegas Providers, a second team from Hazelton behind the strong Hazelton Strikers side.

    We had that game in hand. We were winning. We basically had two goals in hand ... It was 4-4 when we went to a shooutout [and later lost 5-4], Barker said.

    We went from one field right to the other and played that [third] game against the Terrace Young Guns. They beat us 3-0. Matt Anderson got injured, Peter Riley got

    injured, so right there we were down and we had no subs to begin with. It was just bad luck for us.

    Barker and the crew were eliminated after the loss to Terrace and never made it to Sunday, but saw the Smithers squad go far.

    That Smithers team we beat was the strongest team in the tournament. They ended up coming in third because they ran out of steam by the semifinal, he said.

    A team from Saskatchewan won the overall tourney and the Terrace Selects came in second.

    [Our goalkeeper] Simon was awesome. He was spectacular. We had a really strong offensive team and Simon kept us in the game that we shouldnt have even been in ... We were happy, but you cant win em all, said the defenceman.

    The next action for PRFC will take place during Labour Day weekend in Gitanyow and then theyll head to the Battle of the Skeena shortly after.

    For the Kaien Island Slo-pitch League (KISL), three teams travelled to Terrace from Rupert to take part in the Second Annual MacCarthy Motors Slo-Pitch Tournament, hosted by Terrace Slo-Pitch.

    The Kekambas finished the highest out of all North Coast squads. They had two wins and a tie in round robin action, placed first in their division, but lost their first game in the championship round to the Grinders from Haida Gwaii in extra innings.

    The Kekambas then beat the Tommy Guns from Kitimat and CK from Terrace, but lost to Smithers Prestige.

    Grassy Bay had to forfeit a few games and finished near the bottom of the pack and the Rupert Zookeepers finished fourth in consolation.

    The Terrace Grim Reapers won through the mercy rule in beating Prestige in a lopsided victory.

    Hot August Nites was rained out at the Northwest Regional Airport, but the Terrace Drags Association was able to fit in a few street legal races on the Friday night preceding Sunday and Mondays points races.

    Rupert reps Riverboat DaysRupert reps Riverboat Days

  • BY KEVIN CAMPBELL PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    Hockey is back in Prince Rupert.With the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre receiving its fresh

    sheet of ice this week, puck players across the North Coast are beginning to turn their attention from the golf greens and workout facilities back to the confines of the plexiglass and dressing rooms.

    And with the first full week of the new ice surface comes the Lou Lemire Summer Hockey Skills Camp.

    The program is in its eighth year in Prince Rupert and is returning after a successful 2014 iteration that had minor hockey, adult and Prince Rupert Rampage players all lacing em up and developing their on-ice swagger.

    Lemire is an athletic director at a Summerland middle school and is bringing his camp to Rupert, Summerland, Castlegar and Port McNeill this year.

    Itll be the same camp [as last year] thats six to 15-year-olds and were running an adult camp. Weve got a conditioning camp for midgets and juniors and we also do a practice for the Rampage as well, Lemire told the Northern View.

    With instructors having previous junior and university-level hockey and dryland training experience, the playing field will be full of kids and adults of all ages.

    The camp splits the participants into age and skill level and while skill and fundamentals often clash with traditional hockey schools, Lemire said they both work in concert together at the Hockey Skills Camp.

    We do small, skill-based games with the kids because we prefer to give them a lot more touches. In two-on-two or three-on-three, the kids get to touch the puck a lot and with a full-on scrimmage, they dont touch the puck as much, but they still enjoy scrimmaging, so we do allow them to

    have scrimmage time as well, said Lemire.What we do is we teach the kids how to perform the

    proper technique for power-skating, passing and shooting and then we reinforce what we taught with drills. Then we finish off with some type of game. Well play dodgeball or asteroids or tag or something. We just want to make sure the kids are having fun as well.

    The focus for adult recreational participants from next Monday to Wednesday will be power skating and individual skills with a focus on shooting, stick-handling and passing and Thursday to Friday featuring team play and instructional scrimmages. A total of 75 minutes of daily instruction is guaranteed for the adults. The kids will take part during the day.

    The camp also boasts a low instructor to player ratio

    and optional T-shirts and hats. This year, Terrace River Kings player Derek Jurista is part of the coaching staff.

    The Rampage senior mens team will additionally be benefitting from Lemires expertise as theyll take to the ice each night after the adult segment has concluded. Theyll focus on conditioning to get their bodies ready for another season in the CIHL.

    The feedback has been great. The kids really enjoy the camp and weve kept growing the program. Weve got over 40 kids this year so its been very positive, said Lemire.

    I keep telling everybody the support we get from minor hockey and the community makes it worthwhile coming and putting on a camp for Rupert. We get treated really well and we look forward to coming back every year.

    Sometimes in the world of journalism, the story that can make or break your career is right under your nose and you dont even know it.

    That is the case for Chester (David Smook) and Alister (Chris Armstrong), two very different reporters at different points in their careers at the Prince Rupert Daily View Chronicle. The two are told by their eccentric editor (Michael Gurney) to find a story worthy of the front page for the newspapers 100th anniversary edition, but newbie Chester is too busy trying to impress while the experienced and battle-tested Alister could seem to care less.

    As the day progresses, chlorinated water shoots out of the office refrigerator

    while the swimming pool and the water taps seems to be devoid of water. But that must just be coincidence.

    The editor who has already given a very mixed up sports analogy dresses as a doctor to tell the two the publishers dying words were to fire whoever didnt produce the story and that ignites a fierce race for a story. A mad race to the fax machine results in a ripped press release containing the words pip and eline. Which, the two decide, is just nonsense.

    After more hijinks and hilarious performances, including the drugging of Chesters coffee and a visit from the supernatural editor who threatens to print the Internet, it all comes together.

    How could they not see the City was piping its drinking water supply to California in exchange for three tickets to Disneyland for members of council?

    Udderfest 2015 in reviewDeadline

    Shaun Thomas / The Northern ViewChester (David Smook) and Alister (Chris Armstrong) fi ght over who gets to take a call to the newsroom.

    Nobody wins when neighbours go to war particularly the mighty cedar hedge that separates the two housesholds.

    Well, nobody but a profiteering businessman who helps feed the frenzy to make a sale.

    That was the case in Hedges, a short play about the Smith and Jones family. When the Jones dog Fifi starts doing her business on the wrong side of the hedge, the Smiths retaliate in a dispute that quickly escalates to include the Smiths new hole-digging dog named Rex, Lime powder, a chainsaw, kerosene, off-key opera and,

    perhaps worst of all, Justin Bieber. As the relationship between the two

    families gets worse and worse, the profits of hardware store owner Widget get bigger and bigger leading the unscrupulous business man to put fuel on the proverbial fire.

    But, as a man with his own household and business to support, is what Widget did wrong? Would business owners in town do anything different?

    Those are the questions the audience was left to ponder as the lights dimmed on this showcase of talented young Charles Hays Secondary School actors.

    After all, guns dont kill people, the individuals pulling the trigger do.

    Hedges

    Shaun Thomas / The Northern ViewThe hedge recounts the events that led to its current predicament.

    What starts as a second chance for freedom for inmate Boon turns into a comical test of integrity in Interrogation.

    After being handed her parole due to an overcrowded, underfunded prison system, Boon (Heath MacRae) makes her way to the halfway house owned by an eccentric and untrusting Irish woman (Treena Decker). After being given the fifth degree, Boon is settling into her surroundings when she meets mentally unstable Keith (Chrystopher Thompson).

    Seeking a change in his life, Keith keeps hounding Boon until she reluctantly agrees to give him some tips about how he can rob the home of a friendly senior citizen down the street. But when Keith

    unexpectedly carries out the robbery, he may or may not have murdered the man with a baseball bat.

    Not wanting to end up behind bars again, Boon and Keith call upon Billy Mays (Martina Perry) for expert body removal. Mays, however, is anything but professional and the body removal involves a corpse being brought to the common area of the halfway house, wrapped in a clown blanket and thrown out the window onto a busy street.

    While it looks like Boon is heading back to the slammer, it turns out the whole murder was an elaborate ruse to see if she was reformed and willing to take responsibility both parole office Keith and Constable Billy thought the plan would not only be a great way to test Boon but to put their love of theatre into practice at the same time.

    It all leaves Boon wondering when exactly the entire world went crazy while she was serving her sentence.

    Interrogation

    Shaun Thomas / The Northern ViewKeith (Chrystopher Thompson) asks Boon (Heather MacRae) to help him plan a robbery.

    The youth program returned once again to Udderfest and this time, the kids were whisked off to the magic and wonder of Hogwarts where witches, wizards and mythical creatures all attempted to coexist in harmony.

    In Spellbound: The Secrets of the Bonsai Forest, big kids Treena, Nivan and Dane helped lead the cast of peculiar and fantastical witches and wizards, who were cast away from Hogwarts due to planting a rat in their headmistress drawer and sent to find the Book of Spells hidden outside.

    Upon arriving at the Bonsai Forest, the magicians (featuring Harry, Hermione, a Cheez Whizard and others) navigated the depths of the dark and mysterious woodlands.

    There, they met Sonic the Hedgehog, a fairy princess, the Minion Bob, unicorns and more.

    After a brief Kung-Fu fighting episode, the creatures and wizards decided that working together and being friends was a much better use of their time than fighting and sneaking around.

    Hook, Line and Snicker entrench themselves deeper as the premier off the cuff, rag-tag group of misfits in the city, whose improv had audiences in stitches on Saturday night.

    mob movie review, a viking-kings kinky advances to his pen-pal Erica the Red, a simultaneously over-exuberant, but tired and washed-up city council and a paring down of a performance of Hansel and Gretel from 90 seconds into three.

    As The Adventures of Lyle McNish began promptly with two characters nestling into their airplane seats, audiences knew right from the bat this was going to be an entertaining spotlight and exploration on the awkward, hilarious and bizarre.

    Lyle McNish, playing himself as the straight man (in this play, quite literally), meets three off-the-wall seatmates, played by Rudy Kelly, as is every character in this play not named Lyle McNish.

    An agitated flyer, an exaggerated sinner and Herb Pond join McNish on his flight the latter opening his

    eyes to the wonders of LNG, making the case that if one were against LNG, one might also hate puppies.

    Later, a friend who becomes a tad too friendly makes McNish believe that he is being hit on by another guy, only to discover that his advances were merely body-focused descriptions and articulate compliments in this brave, new age of male to male admiration. McNish becomes quite befuddled and doesnt exactly know what to do a theme that persists when he picks up a woman from Hazelton while hitchhiking, who decides to go to Rupert on a whim.

    McNishs elephant puppet prankster buddy tops the play off with the best sketch of them all, when he goads the star to make a buffoon of himself through mockery and then films it on his phone.

    Kevin Campbell / The Northern ViewLyle McNish, right, gives a ride to a Hazelton hitchhiker, one of several characters protrayed by Rudy Kelly.

    The Adventures of Lyle McNish

    War of Wits

    While Prime Minister Stephen Harper was busy taking on challengers looking to take his seat this October in a televised debate last week, six Prince Rupert raconteurs were busy formulating arguments of their own, designed to win War of Wits.

    The production, hosted by Chris Armstrong, Ted Keehn and Lyle McNish, was a game show-styled debate competition where three team members would match up against each other and attempt to dissuade the other using often outlandish, but surprisingly logical arguments.

    Thursdays show featured the musings of David Smook, Tiffany Riley, Michael Gurney, Jeff Bill, Chrys Thompson and Treena Decker.

    Among the debate topics the six orators had to convince audiences the pros and cons of was the merits of paving or not paving the waterfront. Smooks sensual hot kiss of asphalt and angled parking spots won out over Deckers displaced Third Avenue critters and street performers.

    Then, Riley convinced audiences that having every crosswalk should be a rainbow crosswalk in Rupert, reducing seasonal affective disorder (SAD) contrasted to Bills argument that the four billion people of the world who are colour-blind (his math checks out) wont be able to enjoy the rainbow of colours that Ruperts crosswalks offer.

    Gurney took on Thompson when the latter argued that releasing mountain lions on top of Mount Hays would be an effective way to deal with annoying animals, pets and children throughout town, while Gurney made the case that the feral cat release of 1983 was enough and rather we should release African lions, so that Simba may lead the Seafest parade.

    In the end, Bill and Gurney talked their way to a tie in the finals of War of Wits, which delighted audiences with allusions of familiar Rupert peculiarities and a more than healthy dose of Kitimat bashing.

    Rotary supports DARE, but more funds neededBY SHAUN THOMAS PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    The Prince Rupert Rotary Club has come forward to donate $1,000 in support of the Drug and Alcohol Resistance Education (DARE) program in the Prince Rupert School District, but organizers say more community participation is needed for the coming year.

    We are very grateful for their generous donations which cover the cost of learning materials for 83 students who took the program during the 2014-2015 school year, said DARE BC Society president Colin Grant.

    In total the group estimates $2,600 will need to be raised in order to provide DAREs new Keeping It Real (KiR) course to 220 students across the district.

    The new D.A.R.E. KiR Program encourages youth to be exemplary citizens and to help others in need. The program also covers topics such as peer pressure, stress, communications, bullying, and the Decision Making Model, explained staff sergeant

    Anthony Choy, the provincial coordinator of the Drug and Organized Crime Awareness Service, which oversees the DARE program.

    Community donations ensure our children will be equipped with the critical thinking and life skills necessary to choose a drug-free life and fund the $12 cost of learning materials per student, added Grant.

    With the target not yet being met, DARE is appeaing to the community the raise the rest the money needed to bring the program to school in the district. Anyone willing to help support the program is asked to call Chantal Broughton at 778-290-2029 or by email at dare@darebc.com.
