TRANSCRIPT

  • By Shaun Thomas The Northern View

    David Black - the owner and chair of Black Press which owns newspapers throughout BC including the Prince Rupert Northern View - announced Friday morning plans to construct a $13 billion oil refinery in the Kitimat area that could create thousands of jobs in the region if it moves forward.

    Black incorporated a company called Kitimat Clean Ltd., with plans to build a refinery 25 kilometres south of Terrace large enough to process all of the capacity from the Northern Gateway pipeline before it is shipped out. The plant would process up to 550,000 barrels per day of diluted bitumen to be shipped back to Edmonton, 240,000 barrels per day of diesel, 100,000 barrels per day of gasoline and 50,000 barrels per day of kerosene. The product would then be piped to a marine terminal site in Kitimat that is currently planned to be used for the Enbridge crude oil shipping terminal.

    According to Black, processing the oil before it is shipped out will remove the threat of offshore pollution from heavy crude due to the evaporative properties of kerosene, gasoline and diesel.

    The refinery will eliminate any chance of a crude oil spill from shipping through Kitimat. Gasoline, kerosene and diesel, which are the products from the refinery all float and are all evaporative, explained Black during a news conference in Vancouver.

    We want it to be the cleanest and the greenest operating refinery in the world.

    Construction plans call for ground-breaking in 2014, with the facility complete in 2020 pending a number of conditions. During the five year construction period, an estimated 6,000 workers would be needed, while another 3,000 permanent jobs would be created during operation, with half of those being provided through private contractors.

    Prior to the submission of the environmental assessment application early Friday morning, Kitimat Clean Ltd. has spoken to

    the different levels of government about the project, have reviewed the project with investment bankers and been told the revenues and profits are enough to enable equity and debt financing, have discussed the plans with Enbridge and other oil sands producers and brought on-board a refinery consultant.

    However, the $13 billion for the construction of the project has not been confirmed.

    The money for the environmental assessment has been put up. It will take about two years for the assessment, and while were doing that well be talking to industry and customers in Asia and getting the rest of the financing in place, said Black, noting that not all of the partners in the Northern Gateway project are in favour of a refinery as opposed to shipping the oil.

    If there is no Enbridge pipeline there is no refinery. And if we dont believe the pipeline can be built in a way that ensures any leaks will be immaterial then it shouldnt be built.

    However serious discussions with the Haisla and the Kitselas, on whose traditional territories the terminal and refinery would be located respectively, have not taken place. Art Sterritt of the Coastal First Nations, however, says more work needs to be done

    with other groups along the shipping line.

    The air pollution and impact from this refinery will have the same impact on the area, and removing the problem for the Skeena and the Nass is not solving half of the problem...Youre going to be polluting that area even more so, said Sterritt, who was at the announcement.

    If youre serious about doing business in the north, you need to be out there talking to First Nations in the region.

    Hockey, skating put on hold as ice not expected to be in place until November

    By Shaun Thomas The Northern View

    Some winter sports may be on hold early this season as the City of Prince Rupert doesnt expect to have ice in the arena until early November.

    We had a mechanical failure with the chiller, which is what makes the ice. There is a brine that goes through some pipes, and those pipes are surrounded by ammonia, but

    the pipes have rusted out and the ammonia is seeping into the brine, explained acting city manager Bill Horne, noting that early November is the date theyre hoping for although it may be sooner.

    It needs to be replaced. It was scheduled to be replaced in the next two years and Civic Centre staff had started getting information from suppliers on the cost and type of machine, but this chiller went before we

    could get a new one.

    One of the many organizations including Prince Rupert Minor Hockey and the Prince Rupert Figure Skating Club - that would be impacted by the delay is the Prince Rupert

    Rampage hockey team of the Central Interior Hockey League. What the delay means for them is fans shouldnt expect to see the team until November.

    As of now the league schedule isnt out, so I have

    asked the league not to schedule any home games until November 3, since we always try to have a game during the old-timers tournament...Basically our ice time will be when we travel to Terrace for the Challenge Cup. Other than that we will be focussing

    on dry-land training, said Rampage president Ron German, noting that potential players should be coming out for training Wednesday at seven p.m. at the Prince Rupert Middle School field or in the gym if the weather is poor.

    We have a great opportunity this year, with a young team with lots of speed and some veterans talking about coming out.

    COMMERCIAL LISTING

    By Shaun Thomas The Northern View

    Skeena - Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen says he would be very, very surprised to see plans by David Black to construct an oil refinery in the Kitimat-Terrace area come to fruition.

    Its another chapter in a story that is increasingly becoming more and more ridiculous. This wasnt in Enbridges plans, its not in Chinas plans, its not in the Prime Ministers plans so I dont know where it came from...Hes making an announcement with no money, no local support and no support from First Nations so it is very hard to take seriously, he said.

    Black said he will use his own money to finance the proposal through the B.C. environmental assessment, which he expects to cost several million dollars. After that, he said investors would be needed to complete it, assuming both the refinery and the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline receive approval.

    There is a reason nobody is backing this...For a newspaper baron to say how the oil industry should be running when nobody in the oil industry is doing this themselves is ridiculous, added Cullen.

    Despite taking crude oil out of the marine environment on the north coast, North Coast MLA Gary Coons says he is also doubtful anything will come from the announcement.

    I think it is a pie in the sky concept. Theres no partners, no money, no meaningful consultation with the Kitselas or the Haisla...You would think he would have learned from the Enbridge fiasco and had the Ts crossed and the Is dotted with at least the two key First Nations before announcing the project, said Coons.

    We havent seen a refinery built in Canada since the 1980s, so at this time I dont think it is a feasible concept that Mr. Black is proposing.

    Kitimat mayor Joanne Monaghan, who was the only elected official on the phone line during the announcement, said she was excited to hear about the plan.

    This project will probably, if it goes ahead and we are hopeful it does, will probably change the face of the northwest forever, she said.

    I think this is a great day in history.

    Terrace mayor Dave Pernarowski said he too was glad to hear of the proposal, but was waiting to hear more about it before taking a position.

    The City of Terrace is always open to new business and job creation opportunities. Mr. Black is a highly respected and successful businessman in B.C. and, as the owner of one of our key media outlets, the Terrace Standard, he is a valued member of our growing business community, he said in an e-mail to Black Press.

    At this time, we dont know enough about the project to comment one way or another about it, but we look forward to working with Mr. Black in the future and engaging with our citizens regarding any major investments that could create jobs and help grow our amazing city.

    Kitamaat chief councillor Ellis Ross says he hasnt met with David Black, but that they have spoke over the phone.

    My initial thought was that this still doesnt answer the concerns about bitumen entering Haisla territory, though I see now it does as the refinery is on the outskirts, he said.

    There is nothing formal in place and there have been no negotiations. I was waiting to the formal referral to come to council, and that would come from the crown, not from David Black...There are still too many unanswered questions at this point.

    Kitselas chief councillor Judy Gerow said the band would be taking a wait-and-see approach on a project that would be located on their territory.

    We dont want to make any kind of statement of endorsement. We are still conducting the independent study so I think it would be too soon, she said, noting the Black did meet with her prior to the announcement.

    We didnt talk about partnership...We dont want to go there now.

    The tourism season in Prince Rupert is about half way through and, so far, most businesses that rely on this time of year are either doing about the same as last year or worse.

    While none of the businesses the Prince Rupert Northern View talked to are being crippled financially, the fact remains that the first part of this tourist season has been slower than in previous years.

    There a number of factors business owners believe are the cause of this, some of the most concerning are the lack of a weekly

    cruise ship for the first time and a sharp decline in traffic coming off of the ferries.

    As you might expect the fact that Prince Rupert has only had four cruise ships this summer has been a big hit to the shops in Cow Bay. The Icehouse Gallery says that theyve seen a noticeable drop in business this summer because of the fewer cruise passengers, but at the same time theyve seen more locals and tourists from out of town coming in.

    Other Cow Bay stores like Seahorse Trading Company and Homework have also been stung by the cruise situation, but say that their business is remaining steady. According to management,

    Seahorse is helped by the fact that they have a popular caf and also partly by the fact that they are one of the only toy stores in town.

    One interesting change has been that the cruise ship passengers who did come into the Cow Bay businesses are said to have been much friendlier than in past years. Whether or not this is because of the extra effort put into welcoming them at the waterfront is anyones guess.

    Prince Ruperts hospitality industry is a little more divided. The larger hotels like the Crest and the Prince Rupert Hotel say that their business is about the same as last year. The Prince Rupert Hotel, for instance, has about half of its

    rooms occupied at any given time. One of the reasons for this is that the Prince Rupert Hotel does a lot of business with tour companies.

    Smaller places like hostels and bed and breakfasts are seeing more of a change in their business this year. The most noticeable difference

    for them is the drop off in ferry traffic. According to BC Ferries, the number of passengers coming to Prince Rupert in June was down almost 13 per cent from last year and seven per cent in July.

    Many of the owners of these businesses pointed the finger at ticket prices for driving passengers away.

    The effect this has had differs from business to business. The Tides B&B says that in previous years theyve had rooms booked months in advance, while this year more of their business has been people calling looking for a place to stay at the last minute.

    The hostels, meanwhile, have seen the number of backpackers coming through Prince Rupert evaporate. This has been particularly noticeable at the Pioneer Hostel, which markets itself specifically to backpackers. This hasnt hurt the hostel as much as you might think, as theyve seen their business made up for by slightly older, more family oriented tourists.

    Tourist attractions are still doing fairly well. Prince Rupert Adventure Tours say that their business is doing well even without the cruise ship passengers because of the regular tourists coming.

    The North Pacific Cannery has seen a slightly slower year as well. The cannery found getting cruise passengers to go out there was a challenge. This year theyve invested more marketing to road-trip tourists and bus charters, which they believe has paid off.

    So while it has been a slower tourism season so far in many sectors of the tourism industry, the season is not been terrible as some online commentators have suggested. The head of Tourism Prince Rupert, Bruce Wishart, argued in one of his regular columns for this paper that Prince Rupert experiences what he calls invisible tourism. He says that many people dont realize just how many tourists there are about because they blend into the community or are out on excursions.

    TOURISM INDUSTRY

    By Martina Perry The Northern View

    There was a close call in the downtown core

    last week when a motorist hit a small child on a bicycle.

    However due to low speeds involved during the accident no one was injured.

    On August 15 at noon, the Prince Rupert RCMP responded to a report of a vehicle hitting a cyclist near the intersection on McBride St. and 2nd Avenue.

    When RCMP members arrived at the scene they learned that the cyclist, who was under the age of 10, was hit when they were riding their bike on the sidewalk.

    A vehicle was pulling out of a nearby parking lot just as the cyclist was riding across the exit. As a result, both the cyclist and the vehicle collided, explained Constable Matt Erickson of the Prince Rupert RCMP.

    Luckily the speeds of both the cyclist and the vehicle were slow enough at the time of the collision, so there were no injuries or damage done to the vehicle.

    The Prince Rupert RCMP would like to remind bicyclists that when they are riding on the sidewalk they need to be aware of their surroundings, and that all motorists should be extra cautious in summers months, as there tends to be more people walking on streets, and riding bikes, rollerblades, skateboards, etc.

    MPs across the country are making their rounds on the yearly summer barbecue circuit, which is a convenient way for them to meet with constituents before Parliament resumes sitting on September 17.

    Nathan Cullen is no exception to this, and was in Prince Rupert on Saturday to hold a barbecue fundraiser for the Prince Rupert SPCA in Mariners Park.

    Every year since I was elected weve helped a community group raise some money, rather than do the usual political-flipping-burgers-thing. And this years recipient gets to choose next years, said Cullen.

    This years recipient was the Prince Rupert SPCA, an organization that has seen its financial support from places such as the City of Prince Rupert cut back sharply in recent years. So the SPCA needs all the funding it can get. All of the money from the barbecue will go towards their operating expenses.

    They chose us as this years beneficiary. The barbecue is all by donation and it all goes to us. Its pretty awesome, said the manager of the Prince Rupert SPCA, Anna Terebka

    The SPCA is on the front lines of trying to deal with Prince Rupert and Port Edwards out of control cat population. Terebka says that they are applying to the City for a grant to help set up a spay and neuter program.

    In an attempt to have more of the adult cats at the shelter adopted, the BC SPCA is holding a Cat Adoption Week from August 23 to the 25 where people can take home a cat over six months old for whatever price theyre willing to pay.

    Were really full right now, weve got a ton of cats. Its kitten season right now and all the older cats get overlooked, said Terebka.

    While the barbecue was focused on the SPCA and the animals (many people came out with their dogs to the event), there was a fair share of politicking going on. Cullen was posing for pictures and talking with constituents while volunteers and North Coast MLA Gary Coons, manned the grills.

    [Weve been talking about] everything under the sun: immigration, Enbridge, whats been going on with the port, anything that happens in town. Its what the barbecue accomplishes, its a much more relaxed atmosphere than having to book a meeting, said Cullen.

    Sometimes I meet with dozens and dozens of people in just a few hours. I dont get to flip many burgers, but then again Im not the best burger flipper.

    OPINIONNorth Coast

    David Blacks proposal to build an oil refinery in the Kitimat Valley is an interesting one, and one that has clearly gotten people across western Canada talking.

    Its far from a perfect proposal - theres no backers, no money for construction, no agreements in place for the use of the oil from the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline and no agreements or expressed interest from Asian companies to purchase the refined product. One could say its more of an idea at this point than a project, though it will be interesting to see how everything plays out in the years ahead.

    But there are a number of important things that Fridays announcement did and did well.

    The first is addressing concerns from environmental groups, First Nations and residents in relation to raw oil being transported up and down the north coast. While there is still concern about the pipeline that would lead to the refinery, the marine shipping and possible spills of crude oil would be off the table should the refinery move ahead.

    Secondly, it provided a glimmer of value to BC that was otherwise missing from Enbridges pipeline proposal. A few jobs and some royalties from the land the pipeline is built on is nowhere near enough of an economic incentive for BC to want the pipeline; 6,000 temporary and 3,000 permanent jobs as part of a $13-billion development sweetens the pot quite a bit.

    The third, and perhaps more important thing, that Fridays announcement did was to get people really thinking about the way Canada and BC handle our raw resources. What Black

    was essentially saying is, Why ship out raw resources to be processed overseas when we can process them here in BC and here in Canada and ship out a finished product?.

    To me thats the (pardon the pun) $13-billion question. The number of jobs and economic impact created in the province through shipping raw oil or raw logs - which is currently

    done from the Prince Rupert harbour - pale in comparison to the jobs and money that would be seen by processing the resources here.

    As Ive said, I dont see this pipeline happening. But its good to see this announcement spurring on the discussion about raw resource exports in Canada.

    MY VIEW

    A look at refinery announcement...

    Whenever travel writers, tour operators, or other industry partners come to Prince Rupert, we start by giving them a driving tour.

    Its not a scripted tour. We adapt our presentation based on the particular interests of the visitor.

    We drive Cow Bay and the waterfront, chatting about the fishing industry, the old network of coastal steamships, and the history of the Port. At Atlin Terminal we talk about the Halibut Capital of the World. Downtown we discuss the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway and the establishment of the City, and in Section Two we tell the story of the Soldiers Settlement Act and how the immigrants who built the boom city created a Canadian community after the First World War.

    Visitors see the wildlife in the urban landscape, the deer and the eagles. From the viewpoints by the hospital we have an overview of the harbour, and Metlakatla Pass National Historic Site. This, with the crest

    poles sprinkled throughout the community, helps us tell story of the Tsimshian and the surrounding nations.

    We point out new port development. We talk about the ethnic diversity of the community. At Seal Cove, a separate community in the very beginning, we talk about the sawmill that fuelled the first construction boom, the seaplanes that link the outlying communities, the emergency services that highlight the reality of coastal living.

    Ruperts story is complex. Very few of these people would listen to us deliver a lecture on Prince Rupert history and culture; and, if they did, they would absorb very little of it. But even years later weve had writers contact us to refresh their memory of some little detail from a driving tour.

    This is because when we conduct the

    driving tours we treat the city as an exhibit. One often hears people say that they learn best if they have visuals, if they can actually experience what they are hearing, and that is exactly how we do it. So as one example, the Second World War is a critical part of the Prince Rupert story. The Canadian government started to fortify the harbour and build up defences in the late 1930s, and by 1942, following the Pearl Harbor attack, the

    population had mushroomed from about 6,500 people to about 25,000. Driving out to Seal Cove, through rows of wartime housing that has been adapted due to changing needs over the ensuing years, we can provide a vivid demonstration of this rapid population growth.

    The driving tour provides a framework for the experience that follows. Because of it our visitors are already engaged and interested

    when we introduce them to the Museum of Northern BC, where their knowledge and interest is taken to the next level. As we move on to more specific activities visiting Pike Island or North Pacific Cannery, going wildlife watching, or whatever weve planned, each new experience can be slotted into the framework of knowledge. This approach allows us to translate the whole Prince Rupert story in the shortest possible amount of time.

    Prince Ruperts heritage resources provide the basis for our presentation of the community. We dont try to tell the story chronologically. We just chat as we see the physical reminders of each aspect of our story.

    A communitys heritage resources are its character-defining elements. Their educational value to tourism is incidental it is more important that our heritage defines us and helps in building community identity and pride. And as always, a good place to live makes a good place to visit.

    It is somewhat interesting to think about our learning curve with wines and traditions today.

    The screw-cap wine has become so common place in the last few years that many of us who at times might have argued against the tradition of corks and ceremony of service are now intrigued and convenienced by the simple service style and almost perfect storage of a once taboo product.

    The screw cap phenomenon has really caught on and is on nearly 50 per cent of the wines we find on our store shelves today. Screw top closures are especially wonderful during the summer months now when we are enjoying wines on

    a boat deck or camping; the ease of r e s e a l i n g the bottle makes them convenient and keep a c c i d e n t a l spills from spoiling the whole bottle.

    The seal also works a little better to keep oxygen out and will preserve the quality of unfinished wine longer in the fridge.

    The screw top wines dont have any potential for allowing your wine to age, so when you see a wine with this type of closure it means that it is ready to go. Most wines wont benefit much by being aged, they just dont have the complexity and structure to mellow out over time, we call these drink now wines. A screw top closure is perfect in this case because it

    gives the wine the maximum protection against oxidation,

    and isnt preventing any necessary aging.

    Here are a couple of lovely wines that have screw top closures and are ready to go just snap, twist and enjoy!

    Wines of the week

    Full Press Vineyards Chardonnay

    The nose has several layers, with warm fresh smells of lemon meringue, orange zest and field hay. A nice palate of flavours that show a good balance between sweetness and acidity. Showcasing

    nice pineapple and citrus. Easy to drink alone or to match with coastal seafood dishes especially scallops.

    Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2009 1[Australia]

    A flinty fresh scent of pineapple and grass. A nice amount of acidity on the tongue that almost feels like your sipping a sparkling. The flavours are gentle and not too overwhelming, a bit of apple and sweet orange. Great for grilled vegetables and lightly dressed salads.

    Screw capped wines are great for summer months OPINION

    Not cyclist friendlyEditor:Nobody in Prince Rupert wants to hear that we

    are an unfriendly city, we have always been proud of being the friendly city from the beautiful North Coast but we fall short on friendliness when it comes to sharing our streets and roads with cyclists.

    I started to ride a bicycle after 40 years and was introduced to a very unfriendly experience with cars, trucks, transport trucks, delivery vans and taxi cabs. After the first few trips downtown, I came home and told my wife I almost got ran over several times. Vehicles came so close to me I could read part numbers and bumper stickers as they flew by inches from my arms. I made my views known to other cyclists, enthusiasts and exercisers and the comments were unanimous: They said we do not ride our bicycles in town as it is just too dangerous. I also spoke to cyclists who ride out on Highway 16 and that can also be a hair raising experience. As a community we need to change the way we think of cycling and cyclists.

    Cycling is good for everyone who does it, good for their health and well-being. Encouraging people to exercise and ride a bike is good. Parking the gas guzzler for a few hours is also good.

    Please, please share the streets and give the cyclist a small brake and less black smoke in the face.

    Thank you in advanceKen Cote

    We asked:

    Do you feel the City should look at cutting costs on City

    expenses, and if so where should they cut?

    Yes the city should look at cutting costs starting with the fi re dept and RCMP. [That would be] a good start, over $2 million more than Terrace...Airport ferry next, push to have a road from Port Simpson to Metlakatla and our airport dock is right in the middle of the run. BC ferries or high-ways would have to take over this run, saving us about a million dollars!

    CESchool district and Port Edward agree on new leases

    By Martina PerryThe Northern View

    Despite the fact that its summer, School District 52s Board of Education met last Wednesday to hold a special open meeting where they approved funding and lease agreements for Port Edwards new school.

    The first aspect the board went over and approved was the capital Project Bylaw, which means that the Ministry of Education will provide $500,000 of funding to the School District to be provided to Port Edward to help construct the new school.

    [Port Edward already has] some funding from their own borrowing towards that project and needs additional funding to ensure they could complete it. This capital bylaw will have the Ministry of Education provide funding to the district, which we will then provide to Port Edward as part of the cost of completing that school, explained School District 52 secretary-treasurer Cam McIntyre.

    The board then moved on to the lease portion of the meeting, starting off by entering into a 20-year lease with the District of Port Edward that will begin on

    September 1, 2012 and will end on August 31, 2032, for the new school.

    The new school, which is currently being constructed on to the existing Community Centre by Maloney Contracting of Kelowna, will include three classrooms, a library and additional bathrooms. The Community Centre already has a gymnasium, which students will use in the day and the community can continue to use in the evenings. Additionally, the public will be able to use the library after school hours.

    The School District will be officially closing Port Edwards

    old school building located on 633 Sunset Drive on August 31. Port Edward has entered into a one-year lease with the School District for this property that will begin on September 1, 2012, and end on August 31, 2013. Port Edward did this because they want to maintain control of the old building once the school district stops using it.

    What we would like to do over time is go through the process to actually enable the building to be transferred to the District [of Port Edward]. That process is working in the background, so in the

    mean time we had the short term lead-in we knew we had to deal with so we entered into the one-year lease to ensure that short term lead was met while we continue to work at transferring, clarified McIntyre.

    But because the building addition that will house the new school in Port Edward will not be complete by September 1, the District of Port Edward has offered to let the school district use the previous building until the new location is ready to open. This means that the school district had to enter into a sublease that will begin on September 1, and will end whenever students move over

    to the new building.Our expectation is that it will

    be done prior to Christmas and that we would likely move in over the Christmas [break] and come January, students would be coming to the new school, said McIntyre.

    If Port Edwards student population were to increase, there is some room for growth at the new school. After all, there are three full classrooms being built at the new location, with only two of the rooms expected to be used this upcoming school year.

    It could house well over 60 students, and well probably be under 40, commented McIntyre.

    Since opening to the public on June 13, the Prince Rupert Port Authoritys Interpretive Centre in Prince Rupert has had visitors from all over the world, with the Port of Prince Rupert recognizing the 2,500th visitor late last week.

    [The port] had few expectations about what type of response the Port Interpretive Centre would earn from the community. We are of course delighted at the fantastic response, both from the community and from visitors outside of Prince Rupert and Canada, said Michael Gurney, Manager of Corporate Communications for the port authority.

    Six-year old Prince Rupert resident Cassidy Kawaguchi was recognized as the 2,500th visitor when her and her family were touring the centre last week, with summer student Caitlin Tates guiding them through the many visual displays and interactive exhibits. Cassidy had already been through the centre once before on a year-end class trip with her fellow grade one classmates from Roosevelt Park Community School.

    When I went on the tour with my school, they thought it was pretty cool. I really like the big screen video, and seeing the trains dumping all the coal. And I got to learn about the places that lots of people we know work, said Cassidy, who was given a gift

    bag from the Port Authority for the milestone visit.

    Cassidys mother, Emily, was equally as thrilled by the recognition and with the centre.

    My daughter came home very excited from her visit earlier this summer, and after seeing today what the Port Interpretive Centre has to offer I would recommend it to everyone in Prince Rupert who hasnt been here yet. Theres a lot about the history of the port and how important its became to Canada that I didnt know, and its a fascinating place for kids and adults, she said.

    The centre will be staying open year round, with the port currently searching for a community outreach coordinator, who will oversee the operations of the centre. Since opening its door, the centre has employed two full-time and two part-time summer student workers, however come September the students will be returning to their schools.

    Admission to the centre is free, with up-to-date hours of operation being posted online at www.rupertport.com/centre.

    GUESTS FROM ALL OVER
