    The District of Port Edward and Pacific NorthWest LNG will begin discussions this week about property taxation on the Lelu Island terminal to determine what rate would be fair to both the company and the municipality.

    Chief administrative officer Ron Bedard said using the districts current taxation rate for industry could present an unnecessary burden on the company.

    The feeling is that the normal tax route is not the way to go. For example, if it is a $10 billion project it would mean our community would get $27 million per year in taxes. While I assured Pacific NorthWest LNG we could easily spend it, it seems a bit much ... its tough

    to argue for $27 million per year when the whole budget is around $2 million, he told council, noting a letter received from the province supporting the discussion was the last step to discussions beginning.

    My hands have always been tied because it is the province that sets the regime of how we can tax properties ... the province is now willing to work with the proponent and ourselves to potentially would out a taxing regime that is more favourable.

    Pacific NorthWest LNG said the discussions scheduled to take place are among the many that are taking place as the company works toward a final investment decision later this year.

    These discussions build upon the work being undertaken with local, regional and provincial governments to ensure that the tremendous benefits stemming from our project are realized, said Pacific NorthWest LNG senior corporate affairs advisor Spencer Sproule.

    Although the province has given their approval, the legislative power of the government and its determination to see LNG developed is also one of the catalysts for the two parties to work out an agreement that benefits them both.

    Whether or not North Coast students and others across the province will return to school on time remains unclear as negotiations have yet to provide certainty to parents and students in B.C.

    As of Aug. 25, a deal between the British Columbia Teachers Federation (BCTF) and B.C. Public School Employers A s s o c i a t i o n (BCPSEA) had not been reached.

    Sandra Jones, superintendent of School District 52 (SD52), said the district remains hopeful that school will start on time, with preparation for openings taking place as usual.

    If the council of the day digs in their heels and says, no, were keeping what we have, then the province would likely come in and legislate something we may not like ... they could say, OK, the mill rate for LNG will be $5 per $1,000 of assessed value, Bedard explained.

    This way we have a kick at the can of getting something more favourable to us than something legislated.

    While the City of Prince Rupert will not be involved in the discussions as the terminal falls within Port Edwards taxing jurisdiction, Bedard noted discussions will likely take place later to ensure both communities benefit should the company make a positive final investment decision.

    At this point, we do not know for certain when school will commence, but we continue to prepare for school to begin as scheduled on Sept. 2, reads a letter signed by Jones on the SD52 website.

    In the event developments occur in which school resumes, be assured schools will be ready for students immediately.

    A joint statement put out by the BCTF and BCPSEA on Aug. 14 stated that mediator Vince Ready was monitoring the dispute and would resume exploratory talks or launch full mediation when he believes it will be productive.

    During the BCTFs Summer Leadership Conference in Kamloops over the weekend, president Jim Iker urged government to enter negotiations to end the strike. During a speech to the hundreds of teachers in attendance, Iker said negotiations are at a stand-still because of the governments unwillingness to enter full-scale mediation and compromise.

    Teachers do want to be back at school on Sept. 2. Were hoping that the government comes to the table and accepts the mediation so that we can do that, said Kathy Murphy, president of

    the Prince Rupert and District Teachers Union (PRDTU), who attended the conference.

    B.C. teachers started a full strike on June 17 after three weeks of rotating strikes, seeking improvements in class size and composition and higher wages.

    The B.C. government has stated teachers wages have to be in line with other public-sector workers for a settlement to be reached.

    If schools arent open on time, B.C.s Finance Minister announced the government will give parents or guardians $40 a day for child care for each kid under the age of 13.

    Why would the government pay $12 million a day to keep kids out of school? questioned Murphy.

    The Prince Rupert School District is asking parents and guardians to check the SD52 website for updates at www.sd52.bc.ca.

    Martina Perry / The Northern ViewAccess to the Sixth Avenue bridge is expected to resume early next month.

    Sixth Avenue bridge nearly finishedBY MARTINA PERRY PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    Regular users of the Sixth Avenue East bridge may soon be able to take their usual route, with repairs expected to wrap up in the beginning of September.

    We are hoping to have the bridge open for the first week of September, however there may be issues with asphalt availability near the end of the month, said Richard Pucci, engineering coordinator for the City of Prince Rupert.

    The City of Prince Rupert allocated $300,000 in its annual budget toward the repairs, which Pucci said were necessary for the bridge to continue to perform at the same level of service

    to the community. The repair job is replacing the bridge deck

    support structure by upgrading all of the tensioning rods and adding replacement sleeves so maintenance will be easier in the future. The project will also involve a new asphalt driving structure and sidewalk timber repairs.

    So far, the former asphalt has been cut and the new tension rods and sleeves have been installed. The contractor is currently in the process of grouting in the sleeves and tensioning the rods.

    After this work has been complete, the engineering department crew will be able to grind off the old asphalt surface and replace it with fresh asphalt.

  • It is Monday morning, just over a week before school is scheduled to begin, and there is no word of any pending deal between the B.C. Teachers Federation (BCTF) and the provincial government.

    The last time there was word from the two parties, they seemed so far apart that a resolution seemed unlikely. Aside from class size and composition, the two sides seemed far apart on

    wages and a signing bonus. While I may be wrong, anyone holding their breath for a return to the classroom on Tuesday monring may want to exhale.

    This years seemingly bi-annual teacher job action has had a polarizing effect on the people of B.C. some point the finger of blame squarely at the government while others

    point the finger of blame squarely at the BCTF. But the truth of the matter is that, in this case, it takes two parties to make negotiations work and it takes two parties to make negotiations fail.

    Aside from the last few weeks, both the government and the teachers have turned this round into a public-relations war, with each side having its own unique ammunition. For the government, they are using your tax dollars in the battle of popular opinion. The teachers, meanwhile, are using the students and youth of the province as fodder to win support.

    In both cases, the arguments are seemingly filled with half-truths and innuendo.

    The province says it doesnt have the money to pay teachers more or put additional resources into the classroom. Maybe the government would if they pulled their heads out of the vote-rich Lower Mainland and looked at the province as a whole. Instead of putting money into new bridges and improved stadiums, put it into the classroom.

    For the teachers, to say what you are doing is all for the children is tough to believe when the BCTF is asking for a larger signing bonus for all of its members. A signing bonus in no way, shape or form helps students and it is money that could go back into the classroom.

    Even if a settlement is reached before months end, neither the province nor the BCTF should be given a free pass on this latest debacle.

    It takes two to tango

    There was an uproar in the B.C. legislature this spring when Transportation Minister Todd Stone went ahead with $19 million in cuts to low-usage coastal ferry routes.

    The plan had been laid out in detail before last years election. It targeted sailings where ridership was in the low teens or even single digits. On some sailings the Transport Canada-mandated crew outnumbered the passengers.

    Despite the cries of doom, most of the sailing reductions have been managed with one glaring exception. The Discovery Coast Circle Tour route saw its ferry from Port Hardy to Bella Coola replaced, using the smallest vessel in the BC Ferries fleet, the open-decked Nimpkish.

    This move wasnt a direct response to low usage, a chronic issue with some of the minor route sailings along the coast. It was to avoid ordering a replacement for the Queen of Chilliwack, which sailed directly between Port Hardy and Bella Coola.

    This summer the first leg was consolidated with the Northern Expedition, the vessel that replaced the doomed Queen of the North on the Inside Passage run up to Prince Rupert. At Bella Bella, after a layover of a couple of hours, the Nimpkish took over with space for 16 standard vehicles on its deck and a midnight arrival time in Bella Coola.

    The direct route had been mainly used by European tourists, who sailed from the Lower Mainland to Victoria, drove the length of the island, ferried to Bella Coola and drove through the rugged Chilcotin to Williams Lake and back down south to complete the circle tour.

    The new route incorporated stops in remote outposts Ocean Falls and Shearwater, making it even longer. Warnings came

    early.Thats where 90 per cent of the [BC Ferries] money

    is being lost, on the milk runs, and thats the part they are keeping, Petrus Rykes, a tourism operator at Anahim Lake for 40 years, said in March. The part theyve cancelled was at 70 per cent capacity, the second highest of all the fleet routes.

    Reports of a bad slump have come to pass. The changes meant bookings couldnt be made until April, too late for most international travelers.

    A survey by Bella Coola Valley Tourism in mid-summer found most operators losing business, from 10 to 90 per cent. A bus tour of Canadian seniors heading west from Williams Lake was terminated after 14 years. One tourism operator on Highway 20 is considering closing down.

    Stone and his family took the new route themselves in early August, with the minister offering sunny reports on his blog.

    Stone summed up his experience this way:At the end of the day, my assessment is that the Nimpkish

    is a good tourism product if tourists are made fully aware as to the type of service it provides. If correct expectations are set, I believe the Nimpkish can be marketed as a valuable tourism component of the Discovery Coast Circle Tour.

    The decision to do this rests squarely on the shoulders of the tourism industry and tourism operators who need to decide whether or not they want this service to work, to grow and to be viable in order to capture a share of the thousands of international tourists looking for exactly the kind of adventure the Nimpkish provides.

    Got that, Discovery Coast tourism folks? If this milk run doesnt work next year, it will be your fault.

    Program monitors for alien invasionsIn 2012, the Port Au-thority began a part-nership with North-west Community College (NWCC) and the Invasive Tunicate Networks Plate Watch program to launch one of the only aquatic invasive species monitoring programs on the British Columbia coastline.

    With support from Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the local program reports its findings to the coast-wide collection of experts and contrib-utes to an early detection system for invasive species not previously present in the Northwest Pacific.

    The Plate Watch program is a collective of researchers and volun-teers from various marine science groups that stretch from California to Alaska, some of whom have been collecting data since 1994.

    Since its formal launch in 2007, Plate Watch has created an online network has been established to share information across the broad network of participating sites.

    The program utilizes the simple device of a clean, flat PVC plate tied to a brick, which is then deployed from a pier or floating dock.

    The plate is secured approximately one metre underwater where the largest percentage of target species can be found, and allowed to collect samples for up to four months before they are pulled up and investigated.

    Together with NWCCs Applied Coastal Ecology program, PRPA monitors a total of 20 to 30 plates at three different waterfront sites.

    There are a number of species of specific interest to the waters sur-rounding Prince Rupert, including Didemnum vexillum (known as rock vomit) which spreads rapidly to overgrow many other species including shellfish.

    For other species, like the European green crab (a potentially harm-ful invasive only recently introduced to the west coast), trapsinstead of platesare used to detect their presence.

    Through this unique early-detection program, the Port Authority is working collaboratively with partners in Prince Rupert and across the west coast of North America to better understand how we can col-lectively keep our coastline healthy and free from potentially harmful organisms.

    This commitment to invasive species monitoring is a key compo-nent of the Port Authoritys 2020 Environmental Sustainability Plan, which also defines new initiatives and partnerships in the community that will carry even further beyond mandated requirements and regu-lations.

    Through its aquatic invasive species monitoring program, the Prince Rupert Port Authority is measuring and monitoring the state of our harbour in order to respond effectively to any changesas they occur. Together with like-minded community organizations and port partners, the Prince Rupert Port Authority is introducing best prac-tices to reduce the environmental impact of existing operations and future developments.

    Keep health care publicEditor: Beginning on Sept. 8, the biggest

    challenge to date to Canadas Medicare will be heard in British Columbias Supreme Court.

    If successful, our public health-care system will crumble across the country.

    The constitutional challenge is being led by Dr. Brian Day who operates the private for-profit Cambie Street Clinic in Vancouver. Dr. Day believes that the defining principle of Medicareaccess to health care should be based on need, not the patients ability to payis unconstitutional.

    If he succeeds in court, Dr. Day would further open the way to an American user pay style of health care in Canada. We must not let this happen.

    The impact would be felt in many ways: doctors would be able to set any price they wish on their services; expensive private insurance would become necessary. In the U.S., the average cost of insurance for a family of four is $23,215 per year.

    Families would be subjected to greater financial instability. In the U.S., three out of five personal bankruptcies are health care related and 69 per cent of those declaring bankruptcy were insured at the time.

    Wait times in the public system will increase as more and more doctors are siphoned off into the more lucrative for-profit system.

    Clarifying Westview dustEditor: On behalf of the Prince Rupert Port

    Authority, I would like to clarify information contained in the Aug. 20 article regarding dust at Westview Terminal.

    The PRPA actively monitors noise and dust in several ways, including electronic air quality equipment, passive dustfall collection, audio recording devices, 24-hour visual surveillance, and resident feedback and observation about specific nuisances.

    The primary measurement for airborne dust is a real-time air quality monitor located between the terminal and the neighbourhood that measures the particles suspended in the air (i.e., the dust that can potentially impact peoples health). These measurements have consistently been, and continue to be, far below provincial air quality objectives.

    The dust samples referred to in the article were from a monthly collection program that measures the dust deposited onto the ground on the terminal property. The report correctly notes that some of the June dustfall samples at these locations were abnormally high and exceeded provincial objectives.

    We understand that there is a nuisance associated with dust, regardless of the source. The samples are being tested to identify the contributing sources of dust (e.g., wood pieces, road dust, insect parts, pine pollen, other industrial activities). This will allow us to continue to encourage those sources to find ways of reducing dust output where possible.

    It is important for us to emphasize that there was no corresponding increase in measurement of the airborne particles that could impact human health.

  • BY KEVIN CAMPBELLPRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    Obtaining a black belt in the martial art of Taekwondo is hard enough, but when Paul Bozman took his promotion test to attain his the circumstances were almost cruel.

    It was 1985 and Paul had just travelled to South Korea, partly through his masters suggestion but more as part of a backpacking excursion that took him through the exotic east; featuring Nepal, China and Korea.

    Awaiting him was the toughest trial hed ever face as a martial artist and it took the form of a Korean military soldier in his mid-to-late twenties and trained extensively in Taekwondo.

    I was 33, Paul said.He was the Seoul City Champion

    and he was helping out at the school I was training at ... it was difficult in the sense that I could speak two words in Korean and the instructor could probably speak two words of English so I had to watch him and copy.

    Eventually Paul sparred with the impressive soldier and earned his black belt (called the first dan or first-degree black belt), but not without some repercussions.

    I remember the bruises, Paul recalled.

    [I remember] licking my wounds in the hotel room afterwards, asking myself, is this worth it?

    He must have found his answer there in his ice bath, because in the almost 30 years since Bozman has become one of the most respected and revered masters of Taekwondo on the West Coast.

    Born in England in the mid-1950s, Paul came to Canada in 1965.

    In 1973, he saw his first formal Taekwondo demonstration in Vancouver from the founder of the Korean art (known loosely as the way of the foot and the hand).

    It would be almost 10 years later that he would take up his first lesson in Kitimat in 1982.

    I was never a sports kind of guy in school; it just didnt appeal to me. But I always had an interest in the martial arts, he said.

    Originally through Karate and Aikido (the Japanese martial art known as the way of unifying with

    life energy), and later through Taekwondo, Paul said the martial arts have given him a sense of confidence and the mindset to achieve what hes wanted with the proper gumption.

    [I trained with] a Canadian guy, Darryl Douglas [in Kitimat], but I only trained with him for a year and a half, then I moved to Edmonton to train with Grandmaster Jay Park, said Paul.

    It was through Park that Paul really found his footing with the art and it was Park that suggested he try his hand at obtaining his black belt in Korea, the homeland of Taekwondo.

    Paul arrived back in North America at the Los Angeles airport in the Fall of 1985.

    I landed at the airport with two dollars in my pocket just enough to call my brother in Edmonton to pick me up. I was flat broke, he said.

    The master moved to Prince Rupert in 1987 for work.

    I worked here in construction in the early 80s on Ridley Island and then after that I got married. My wife was in China and expecting a baby and I thought I may need to stop construction and get a steady job so I got a job at the grain elevator and then my wife came about a month later from China, said Paul.

    He started teaching Taekwondo at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre as a public program, and did so for 21 years before he found he had outgrown some of its limitations.

    There were some issues with the civic centre management back then and it was just getting harder to teach such a broad spectrum of kids in one class. I thought maybe I should start looking for a designated facility, he said.

    In 2008, Paul opened his own facility.

    Not having to share the place with basketball players and big events; its a lot better. You can teach more effectively, he said.

    Pauls son, Nigel, 26, helps with the training of the popular Prince Rupert Taekwondo and Martial Arts Centre on Second Ave. West and the instructor has found that theres always been something about Taekwondo that resonates with the people of the city

    that has made it so popular.It seems to have more high kicking

    [elements] and the kids seem to like it. Its a little more dynamic than other martial arts, he said.

    Now, Paul has seen a multitude of his students go on to become extremely successful both in B.C. and internationally.

    Kendall-Leigh Beal, a Prince Rupert student until she moved to Osooyos, has started her own club, Outlast Taekwondo Ltd., and two of Bozmans former students earned bronze medals in the 2008 Commonwealth Games. Another is a Rhodes scholar.

    [One of the most fulfilling things as an instructor] is seeing the skill level [my students] attain. [The scholar] wrote a letter to me thanking me for teaching him Taekwondo when he was young, Paul said.

    [Taekwondo has helped] all of them purse their goals.

    Soon there will be flexibility for North Coast residents who recycle, with the completion of a 24/7 recycling transfer station allowing them to drop off material whenever is convenient.

    Were expecting [the 24/7 recycling transfer station] to be open in the latter part of September, said Tim Deschamp, Skeena-Queen Charlotte Regional District superintendent of waste management.

    While originally scheduled to open by Augusts end, work is now in full-gear by contractor Eby and Son Construction.

    The round-the-clock facility will be located at the Skeena-Queen Charlotte Regional Recycling Depot site on Kaien Road and will include a number of large bins so residents can drop off fibre, plastic, metal and Styrofoam products whenever they please. The new transfer station will have enough space to accommodate multiple vehicles and provide protection from the elements.

    For safety reasons, the facility

    will be well lit and under video surveillance.

    The projects price tag is $123,000, with gas tax funds covering $65,500 of the costs, Coast Sustainability Trust contributing $29,500 through a grant, the Prince Rupert Port Authority donating $18,000 through its Community Investment Fund, and the City of Prince Rupert making a $10,000 in-kind donation.

    The depot is currently open during

    business hours Monday through Friday, along with a few hours on Saturdays. The limited hours have made it hard for many residents to return materials, with the Skeena Queen Charlotte Regional District wanting to increase access so working professionals and families can utilize the facility at their convenience.

    The idea was brought about through a collaboration with the City of Prince Ruperts engineering department.

    The B.C. government has launched a new website to prepare parents for a possible continuation of the teacher strike after Labour Day.

    The website, bcparentinfo.ca, promises the latest bargaining updates on B.C.s festering teacher dispute, and will act as a portal for parents registering to collect $40 a day for each child under 13 if the strike drags on. It also offers links to online learning resources from school districts.

    Negotiations have continued under a media blackout since mediator Vince Ready met the two sides last week.

    Mr. Ready agreed to monitor the situation, and to resume exploratory talks or commence full mediation when he believes it will be productive, the B.C. Teachers Federation and B.C. Public School Employers Association said in a brief statement.

    Negotiations broke off and a full-scale strike and lockout ended the school year in June. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Kelleher met both sides earlier but declined to attempt mediation, after finding too large a gap between the two sides.

    Education Minister Peter Fassbender and BCPSEA chief negotiator Peter Cameron have maintained that the BCTFs benefit demands remain far beyond those of other public sector unions that have settled contracts. Also at issue is class size and special needs support, with BCPSEAs latest offer rejected by the union and a series of court actions scheduled this fall.

    Northern Health announced that the pertussis or whooping cough is over in Prince Rupert and Haida Gwaii.

    Since the beginning of the year there have been 229 reported cases of pertussis in the Northern Health region including 166 in Prince Rupert and Haida Gwaii combined.

    Even though the outbreak is officially over, it is important people take the necessary steps to protect themselves against pertussis. Getting immunized is the best protection against pertussis, and it also protects your loved ones that fit into the more vulnerable populations, said Dr. Sandra Allison, chief medical health officer of Northern Health.

    A severe infection of the airways caused by pertussis bacteria, whooping cough starts like a

    cold with symptoms like runny nose, sneezing, mild fever and a moderate cough. However, the coughing will become more serious over the following weeks, leading to forceful, repeated coughing spells that will often end with a whooping sound before the next breath is taken.

    The pertussis vaccine is part of the regular childhood vaccinations, also being given to teens. Adults can protect themselves by getting the vaccination, with Northern B.C. residents being encouraged to contact their local health units or health care provider to ensure they and their families are immunized.

    Port Ed examines hourly busesBY SHAUN THOMAS PORT EDWARD / The Northern View

    Below are notes from the Aug. 20 meeting of Port Edward council.

    Bus boostAs residents of the North Coast await word

    on the final investment decision of Pacific NorthWest LNG, the District of Port Edward has already begun investigating increased access to the community.

    As per a request from council, BC Transit provided details on service increases that would see hourly trips between Port Edward and Prince Rupert between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m on weekdays and Saturdays as well as expanded Sunday service. The total cost for the service would be approximately $214,000 per year, but chief administrative officer Ron Bedard noted some of the larger businesses looking to locate in Port Edward have committed to helping pay for the service.

    But given the required notice and approval

    from BC Transit management, Bedard said people shouldnt expect any immediate changes.

    We are a long ways away from this, he said.

    Rezone completeThe land has been cleared and on Aug. 20 the

    District of Port Edward took another step toward realizing a temporary worker accommodation facility within its borders.

    Following a public hearing earlier in the evening, council gave third reading to two bylaws that move the development forward. The first was to amend the Official Community Plan to reflect that the District of Port Edward encourages the development of temporary construction camps in support of liquefied natural gas development on a site-specific basis withing the Canoxy land for industrial uses while the second rezones a parcel of land just before the entrance to Watson Island to Lodging, temporary.

    Before the rezoning bylaw is given its final reading it must receive approval from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.

    Prince Rupert residents are accustomed to living in rainy conditions, but it didnt make a drenching, excruciating journey any less uncomfortable for this group.

    All but one member from Team Prince Rupert met up with the Northern View last week to talk about their 2014 Ride To Conquer Cancer experience.

    Starting in Vancouver on June 14, the 2014 Ride to Conquer Cancer had 2,104 participants cycle 200 kilometres to Seattle, with a heavy downpour layering the riders throughout the journey.

    But for Team Prince Rupert it acted as a reminder that things can always be worse. A sentiment echoed by all in attendance last week was that the horrendous weather was incomparable to what individuals battling cancer have to withstand.

    The amount of effort we put into [the ride] is nothing compared to what families and people go through ... the roller coaster ride theyre on when cancer grabs them, said Steve Weir, a first-time Ride To Conquer participant. Two days on a bike is nothing.

    What a lot of them have gone through is a lot worse than a little rain, said Team Prince Rupert captain Francis Wolfe, a cancer survivor who has taken part in the event each year since it started in 2009, alongside teammate Gordon Simonds, who also overcame the disease.

    Riding a bike for 200 kilometres is a

    piece of cake compared to what we went through, Simonds said.

    Wolfe was previously diagnosed with both bladder and prostate cancer, with the disease returning in his bladder this past February. He had to have a tumour removed shortly before this years event, and despite not being able to train as much as he wouldve liked, Wolfe decided to participate anyway.

    Wolfes bladder is still being monitored, but he said so far, so good.

    Simonds was more fortunate in his recovery, being an esophageal cancer-survivor. While battling the illness, Simonds signed up for the 2009 event and completed it despite undergoing a major surgery only a few months prior.

    I decided since research saved my life, Id put some money back, he explained.

    Simonds daughter Christa was so moved by her fathers decision that she decided to ride alongside him in a few years rides, including once with her sister. She said she is hugely inspired by her dads dedication to help find a cure.

    It makes me very proud [that my dad continues to ride each year], she said.

    Sandy Giordano joined the team two years ago, reaching out to Simonds after beating non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2007. A stem cell transplant from his sister saved his life, and he wanted to give back to a cause that kept him here today.

    Although Giordano was unable to ride this year, discovering he had bladder cancer a few months ago that required surgery, he

    still lent a hand in the teams fundraising efforts.

    While Tina Cann was no newcomer to the cancer-fighting ride, this was the first year she fundraised and registered as part of Team Prince Rupert. Cann was a member of the Rupert Peddle Pushers in 2013, who rode alongside Team Prince Rupert, but as a separate team.

    Weir wasnt the only Team Prince Rupert novice, with Chris Last also coming aboard for this years event.

    I had a good experience throughout the whole ride, despite the weather, he said, adding he was touched by all the people who came out to show their support of the cyclists, and also by the amount of riders bearing yellow flags, a marking that shows who the cancer survivors are.

    So after it was all done with, what did Team Prince Rupert do? The men shared a

    laugh as they admitted they went for a beer before even showering, signing up for the 2015 event at the same time.

    But when it came to expressing their appreciation to all who supported them this year, and past years, the joking demeanour of Team Prince Rupert members switched to serious and sincere. The guys all reiterated how supportive and willing to help the community has been each year, expressing their appreciation to all the individuals, businesses and groups that have aided them in assisting with a cause so important to them.

    There isnt anybody whose life hasnt been touched by cancer, said Weir.

    Team Prince Rupert raised more than $2,100 through a number of fundraising events, and through financial assistance from more than a dozen Prince Rupert sponsors.

    The Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) is calling for Rupertites interested in or concerned with its various activities to join the Community Information Forum.

    The forum provides individuals and organizations in Prince Rupert with the opportunity to learn about port-related activities and provide their input.

    The community information forum was formed to provide an interface between the community and the PRPA, and to increase the transparency of the port authority and its initiatives, said Michael Gurney, the Prince Rupert Port Authoritys manager of corporate communications.

    The Community Information Forum isnt a decision-making body, but helps the PRPA understand the publics thoughts on various aspect of its activities.

    The Community Information Forum is member-driven, with agenda topics coming from the individuals it consists of. The group is given the ability to invite guests or presenters to the table for specific agenda topics.

    Its a forum for community members to ask questions of

    anybody at the port authority and for the port authority to make periodic presentations to its members, said Gurney.

    As an example, theyve had presentations and discussions focused on environmental assessments, as well port property tax and the Westview Terminal noise and air quality monitoring systems.

    The Prince Rupert Port Authority

    is seeking half a dozen new memberships from individuals who are interested in port activities and are committed to attending the voluntary monthly meetings.

    It could be a personal interest, or an interest motivated through the organizations with which theyre affiliated, either professionally or as a volunteer. The current membership includes people in all of the above categories, said Gurney.

    To apply to become a member of the Community Information Forum, contact PRPA manager of community relations Maynard Angus at mangus@rupertport.com.

    CityWest to charge for billsBY SHAUN THOMASPRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    As of Oct. 1, anyone wishing to continue receiving CityWest bills in the mail will need to pay a little more.

    The company is implementing a $2 fee for all printed statements while also encouraging customers to switch to paperless billing.

    With recent significant increases in postal charges from Canada Post for mailing these statements to customers, we have been forced to look for ways to reduce these costs to the company. Our choices on this matter were to either pass on the cost of printing and mailing a statement to just the customers who choose a paper statement or increasing the costs of services to all customers. The first option gives customers choice rather than a blanket increase to all customers, explained Donovan Dias, director of sales and marketing for CityWest, noting a fee for paper bills is nothing new.

    CityWest is one of the last few Telcos (telephone companies) to implement this charge. For example, Telus, Bell, Fido, Rogers, etc. have been doing this since 2010, with some others implementing such a charge even earlier. There are also several companies in other industries, such as banks, that have implemented a similar charge for paper statements. Some companies are charging up to $4/month for this service, while Citywest is charging $2.

    With the youth of Prince Rupert learning new hockey skills all week at the Lou Lemire Hockey Camp, the Prince Rupert Rampage senior mens team thought theyd get in on some conditioning action.

    Its all about ... getting the legs back, getting the hands back, said team captain Jared Meers.

    Getting back on the ice, touching pucks, getting the plays down. Its great.Lou does a lot of fast-paced drills. Everythings always go-go-go. You dont stop for too much.

    A handful of Rampage players from last year and some new faces made their skating debuts on the fresh sheet of ice at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre last week.While formal practices dont start until the first week of September, the focus was on being more comfortable at home, especially with a new paint and finish job at the old barn.

    The home games are definitely going to be pretty key in the season, said the captain.

    With two fewer games in the 2014-15 season compared to last year, with one being lost at home, the Rampage must try to claim one of two playoff spots between themselves, Kitimat, Terrace and Smithers in 16 regular season games.

    Lots of people show up. Theres great fans, a great crowd. Its always a

    good time here, added Meers.The team will try and improve on their

    7-10-1 record from last season and with recent powerhouse squads like Smithers in their division, the group cant afford to take a night off. They went 5-3-1 at home during those games.

    Usually when we play Smithers, its a lot of a grind game. Theyre very skilled ... but were looking forward to the

    challenge, said Meers.As for players who have departed the

    team from last season, team manager Ron German said Brock Ward will be moving on. Some new faces at the LouLemire camp conditioning drills included Jared Hildebrandt (G), Tyler Bates (F), and Ian McFadden (F).

    Were going to be starting [practices] in the next couple weeks here and if

    theres anyone new to town [theyre welcome to come try out] ... I imagine theres more guys out there with everyone moving around town, said German.

    Those interested can contact the manager through the Rupert Rampage website at www.rupertrampage.com.

    The season opener for the team is on Saturday, Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. when the Kitimat Ice Demons come to town.

    Civic centre to host gymnastics organizationBY KEVIN CAMPBELLPRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    The Prince Rupert Gymnastics (PRG) Association has found their two new board members, as well as their initial location.

    The Jim Ciccone Civic Centre has been chosen as the start-up spot for the organization and with their five-member board consisting of Will Spat, Kate Toye, Jackie Touchet and new members Aurora Martin and Ralph Weick the group is ready to apply for official provincial status as a not-for-profit association with the Canada Revenue Agency. With the designation, PRG can

    start fundraising for operational costs in order to get the sessions underway.

    The next hurdle for the organization is finding paid coaches who can dedicate a good portion of their time to regularly-scheduled practice times.

    CANGYM is the national gymnastics agency which oversees the ranking system for badges earned by participating athletes, and PRG plans to use its systems.

    Utilizing the CANGYM badge program allows participants, coaches and parents to monitor progress in addition to being a motivational tool for athletes, reads the website description.

    A couple obstacles the association must address while hosting the club

    at the recreation centre is the issue of equipment set-up and take-down. As outlined in the newsletter sent to interested gymnastics participants, Spat describes the procedures that need to be completed while sharing a floor that also gets used for basketball, badminton, floor hockey and other activities.

    We are working with the rec centre to schedule in such a way that set up and tear down is minimized, said Spat in the notice.

    A high ceiling, proper ventilation and knowledgeable staff contributed to the clubs decision to hold their inaugural sessions at the civic centre.

    Originally, the organization was

    having difficulty finding a location that met the requirements of ceiling height, with proper bus route accessibility and building rental affordability.

    PRG also hopes to introduce KinderGym as a program for tots younger than five years-old looking to get involved with gymnastics at a young age.

    Gymnastics has been an area sorely lacking in the citys recreational offerings and Spat and the board of directors hope to address the need as soon as they can.

    Those interested in getting involved with PRG can email portgym@gmail.com to volunteer or reserve a spot with the organization.

    The North Pacific Cannery Road Race is primed and ready to hold its annual marathon on Saturday, Sept. 13.

    Chief organizer Leslie Peloquin has received quite a few entries, but in typical Prince Rupert fashion, most of the participants have held off on registering for the marathon until they know the weather situation a little better.

    In order for [the participants] to have a shirt, we would like registrations in by Sept. 1, said Peloquin.

    The race includes a 10 kilometre walk and a half marathon, which begins at 11 a.m. from the cannery. A one kilometre fun run for kids has also been set up at 11:30 a.m. where the young ones can run 500 metres down the road and come back, accompanied by an adult if they wish. The fun run is free, but the kids must still be registered.

    The five kilometre and ten kilometre run commence at 12 p.m. along with a five kilometre walk.

    A barbecue is planned for 1 p.m. for runners and non-runners can pay $7 to attend.

    Aero Trading donates all the fish for the barbecue and then we have burgers and more, said Peloquin.

    Many sponsors have contributed draw prizes, including a gift certificate from Farwest Sport and Cycle

    All of our sponsors are fabulous and we have all kinds of little goodies for people, added Peloquin.

    The race typically attracts participants from Prince Rupert, Terrace and Kitimat, said the organizer.

    Last year we had 92 adults sign up and 46 kids, Peloquin said.Parking attendants will be on hand to help facilitate traffic along the small

    road.Its still a bus route and so we have to allow the city transit to pass

    through there, said Peloquin.[For the route of the race] you run from the North Pacific Cannery, and

    the half marathon would go just before Highway 16 and then turn around and come back in. The 10 kilometres race; they go from the cannery to just around Aero Trading and they have a turnaround there, she said.

    Registration forms and cheque submission information can be found at www.rupertrunners.com.

    PRFC member Scott Allen will defend home turf when the United take on the Northwest this weekend.

    PRFC host Labour Day clashBY KEVIN CAMPBELLPRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    The Prince Rupert Football Club (PRFC) wont have to load themselves into carpools like they have all summer to attend their last soccer meet in August.

    For the first time in three years, the PRFC United will host their own northwest soccer tournament from Aug. 30 Sept. 1, and they have commitments from five teams so far while they wait to hear back from another group of willing participants.

    Were hoping for eight [teams], said PRFC manager James Brown.

    Three Prince Rupert teams have already signed on, as well as Gitanyow and the Uniteds arch-nemesis, the Hazelton Strikers.

    Were hoping to draw in Kitwanga, Kispiox, the Nisgaa United team and Terrace, added Brown.

    A second team, led by Kendall Wing has entered the competition along with Fabio Pomponios Prince Rupert masters division team. Pomponios squad played in their first tournament in Terrace for Riverboat Days.

    The Charles Hays Secondary School field will host the games for the first annual Labour Day Weekend Soccer Tournament and PRFC has won two championships and come in second-place twice in four tournaments. Brown and the squad wanted to attend fewer

    tournaments this summer after last season brought some wear and tear to their bodies.

    Last year we learned our lesson [of attending] too many and we got burned out. By the time Labour Day came around, we just couldnt swing it, said Brown.

    The manager is currently looking for volunteers, judges, tents, tables, coolers and canopies to help with a barbecue and a 50/50 draw during the weekend.

    With eight or more teams, the prize money pot will reach $4,000 and the team may even contribute some of its winnings from this past season to top up the pot as an incentive to woo more teams to join.

    For most teams, its quite expensive [to get here] so you have to have a real nice pot of prize money, he added.

    The team coming in second-place would earn $2,000 with third-place taking home $1,000. Brown has lined up Frazer Dodd to help referee the event and Kaien Environmental and Cope Designs has helped sponsor the trophies to be handed out.

    And for the citys first mens open tourney in three years, Brown suspects his team can help make a push to re-popularize the game of soccer on the North Coast.

    I think its coming around. The talent base is there. Weve got a lot of soccer players out there and they see exposure like this and they see everyones having fun [so it will help], said Brown.

    BY MARTINA PERRY PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    A grassroots campaign says a small percentage of the population holding a majority of the countrys wealth will be detrimental to Canadian communities.

    The All Together Now Fairness Express National Bus Tour, launched by the National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) in association with the B.C. Government and Service Employees Union (BCGEU) and the Health Sciences Association of B.C. (HSA BC), was designed to initiate discussions on the growing income inequality in British Columbia and Canada.

    The provincial tour started on Aug. 15, with the Fairness Express bus making a stop at the Rupert Square Mall parking lot on Thursday, Aug. 21.

    Mike Nuyens, executive vice-president of the BCGEU, said the purpose of the tour is to start dialogues in communities on the growing income inequality, raise awareness on the subject and provide literature and tools to individuals to help spread the word in their communities.

    Most people, when we go through and have discussions with them, have been very warmly welcoming. They want to know what were going to do (to resolve the issue), said Nuyens, noting it is up to all Canadians to reduce income inequality.

    In Prince Rupert, Nuyens said an issue that was repeated by those spoken to is the number of good paying jobs in the community.

    A core group of people are doing the tour, and local activists have jumped on in each community to help spread the word, such as Prince Rupert BCGEU member Lara Stroud.

    I really believe in the movement, she said.

    Everybody stopping by says the

    same thing. They agree that there are inequalities going on and they want to make changes.

    The NUPGE states the key components in reducing income inequality is tax fairness, quality public services, a modern industry strategy and respect for labour rights.

    If income inequality keeps growing well see increases in poverty, unemployment and an increase in lack of public services, said Jonny Sopotiuk, BCGEU staff representative.

    The ultimate goal of the campaign is to inspire British Columbians to carry the call for more progressive policies to their communities and workplaces.

    Long WeekendLong Weekend

    Labour Days rich historyThough many Canadians now see Labour

    Day as little more than a summer holiday, its origins trace back to a significant time in Canadian history.

    By the second half of the 19th century, Canadian cities were experiencing an influx of immigrants that caused populations to grow considerably. This coincided with a changing workplace that was relying more and more on machines, putting workers in an unenviable position. Workers once-special skills were now being handled by machines, leaving the working class with little leverage and no recourse to protest low wages, long hours or poor working conditions. Workers who made such protestations were easily replaced, so many simply accepted what their employers had to offer, regardless of how poor that offer was.

    Such was the reality in Toronto in 1872, when the Toronto Printers Union began to lobby its employers for a shorter work week. When their demands were ignored, workers went on strike in late March. The strike proved a blow to Torontos publishing industry, which had to sit by and watch as a group of 2,000 workers marched through the streets of Toronto in mid-April. As the protesters marched, they garnered more and

    more support, and eventually the crowd of marchers had expanded to 10,000, or 10 percent of the citys population.

    Though the published industry might have been dealt a significant blow, the response from industry leaders, including Toronto Globe founder George Brown, was less than pleasant. Legal action was taken against the leaders of the strike, and replacement workers from neighbouring towns were brought in. But Prime Minister John A. Macdonald, a political adversary of Browns, supported the workers, eventually passing the Trade Union Act that decriminalized unions and led to the strike leaders release from jail.

    Despite support from the Prime Minister, many workers still lost their jobs, and the goal of a shorter work week was not immediately achieved. But the strike was a significant moment in Canadian history, showing workers they were not powerless. In addition, an annual parade was held in honor of the workers who went on strike, and this celebration soon spread to cities throughout Canada.

    By 1894, these parades were officially recognized when then-Prime Minister Sir John Thompson declared Labour Day a national holiday.

    Labour a critical part of North Coast life

    BY SHAUN THOMAS PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    The labour movement in Prince Rupert has a long and storied history.

    If there were any question about how linked to labour Prince Rupert is, consider this: The City of Prince Rupert celebrated its 100th birthday in 2010, and later that same year the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) celebrated its 100th year in Prince Rupert.

    Indeed, since Prince Rupert has been here the labour movement has been here. And though 100 years may have come and gone, the role of labour in the lives or North Coast residents has remained strong.

    When ships come in to call on Prince Rupert, they are loaded and unloaded by members of the ILWU and the Grain Workers Union. Prince Ruperts position and future as a reliable and accessible international gateway relies on the work of the ILWU and its union

    members. Our future is further linked to labour

    through our children. While in school, members of the Prince Rupert and District Teachers Union (PRDTU) stand at the head of the classroom while members of the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) and members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) ensure smooth operations.

    When those we love fall ill and need to go to the hospital, chances are they will be cared for by members of the B.C. Nurses Union and attended to by members of the B.C. Government Employees Union (BCGEU).

    These are but a few of the services that depend on those on the labour movement. From fishermen and plant workers to postal carriers and carpenters; from electricians and carpenters to hotel workers and airline workers, the importance of the labour movement cannot be understated in Prince Rupert.

    The Northern View archivesWhen a vessel arrives at any one of Prince Ruperts terminals, it is union members who unload the cargo and make sure it departs Prince Rupert en-route to its fi nal destination.

    BY STEPHANIE SMITH VANCOUVER / BCGEU

    This spring, I had the honour of being elected to lead BCs most diverse union.

    The over 67,000 women and men of the BC Government and Service Employees Union (BCGEU) work in all areas of the province, in a wide variety of roles, making a real difference in their communities.

    From childcare to child protection; preventative health care to palliative care; social work to corrections; and so much more - what our members share is a dedication to working together for the benefit of all British Columbians.

    As the union that represents these remarkable workers, we owe it to them to not only protect the vital public services they provide, but to continuously work for positive social change. BCGEU members want to belong to a movement that can make progressive new policies that BC needs, such as $10 a day childcare, a reality.

    Thats why this Labour Day - my first as BCGEU president as we celebrate thehard-fought gains the union movement

    has made for BC and Canada,Id like to also look forward and talk about what we still have left to do.

    Our province and country are faced with growing income inequality - including a gender wage gap of 26 per cent that is frankly, embarrassing. Our young people have the distinction of being the first generation that will be worse off economically than the one that came before.

    But the labour movement is in a unique position to change all of that. Hundreds of British Columbians lift themselves out of poverty each year by joining theBCGEU or other unions to achieve collective bargaining rights at their workplace.

    The wage increases they gain by working together go right back into their local economies invigorating communities across the province. The increased tax revenues provide funding for the public services that we all rely on.

    Just think of the exciting things we could do if we all worked together to ensure that everyone, in all regions of the provinces - regardless of race, gender or socioeconomic status - had access to a job

    where they were paid a living wage and treated with respect.

    This is what the labour movement has to offer British Columbians: strong, united and dynamic communities full of people who care for one another.

    When we all band together to demand

    that vital services be publicly available to everyone - not just those who can afford them - well have a whole new set of victories to celebrate each year at the end of August.

    Stephanie Smith was elected president of the BC Government and Service Employees Union (BCGEU) in May 2014.

    BCGEU president Stephanie Smith is making a solution to income inequality a priority.

    LABOUR DAY & EVERY DAY

    Speaking up for safe, quality, public health care

    Labour Day 2014

    Despite the name, many Canadians dont labour much on Labour Day.

    Rather, the federal holiday pays homage to working men and women, and has done so since 1894. Most people associate Labour Day with a chance to gather with family and friends for one last summer hurrah. This year Labour Day falls on Monday, the Sept. 2 and will mark the unofficial end to the summer season for Canadians in the 10 provinces and 3 territories, as well as their American neighbors to the south.

    The last big travel weekend of the summer, Labour Day weekend witnesses many Canadians taking to the roads in search of their final adventure before school begins anew or business returns to normal hours after the relaxed summer season. Rural destinations typically notice a spike in tourism come Labour Day weekend. Savvy travelers know to plan ahead before embarking on a Labour Day weekend getaway.

    Although many people like to get a jump-start on travel plans by leaving early, this practice has grown more commonplace, so leaving early no longer guarantees less traffic. One way to beat

    traffic is to do the majority of your driving in the evening. And because the scores of vacationers will be rushing back for work and school in time for Tuesday morning, you may want to consider leaving very early Labour Day morning or the night prior to beat the traffic home. Doing so means planning the majority of your festivities for the weekend instead of Labour Day itself.

    If yours is a long trip, be sure to bring adequate refreshments with you. This will reduce the need to stop at rest stops and pay premium prices for food. Take-along-snacks are also more healthy because they allow drivers to choose healthy snacks as opposed to roadside fare, which is typically fast food. Be sure to also pack activities for children to keep them occupied.

    Labour Day is also a holiday when people take to the water. Seasides are often filled, backyard pools become oases and traffic on lakes and waterways is bustling with boats and water sports equipment. It is vital to brush up on water safety to avoid injury. Here are some tips to avoid water-related accidents or injuries.

    * Do not drink alcohol and operate a

    boat.* By law, boats are required to have

    enough life jackets/personal flotation devices on board for everyone. They also should be properly sized for the passengers on board. Life jackets need to be approved by Transport Canada, the Canadian Coast Guard, or Fisheries and

    Oceans Canada.* An infant and small children may

    drown in less than two inches of water. Never leave a child alone around water.

    * Constant supervision is needed when children are around water. Adults need supervision, too. Always swim with a buddy.

    Make sure you have a life jacket if youre heading out on the water this Labour Day weekend.

    Black Press purchases

    the Observer

    BY SHAUN THOMAS HAIDA GWAII / The Northern View

    Black Press, owner of the Northern View, announced on Thursday an agreement to purchase the Haida Gwaii Observer from Jeff King.

    Jeff and his wife Dianne have produced the Observer for the past 29 years and when they made the hard decision that it was time to retire their first call was to Black Press.

    When Jeff called us, he said he obviously wanted to make sure the paper he had guided for nearly three decades was left in good hands. And to his mind, Black Press was the perfect fit, said Black Press B.C. North president Lorie Williston.

    And we did too.Todd Hamilton, publisher of the Prince

    Rupert-based Northern View and N2K, is adding the Observer to the list of his responsibilities.

    Jeff and Dianne have done such a wonderful job with the Observer for all these years. Were excited and grateful to have Jeff and Diannes staff join us in Black Press to continue their legacy and service to Haida Gwaii. Hamilton said.

    The Haida Gwaii Observer is a once-a-week paid publication covering the beautiful and culturally-rich Haida Gwaii region. They are also well-known for their production of the high-quality Haida Gwaii Tourism Guide.

    The deal to purchase the Haida Gwaii Observer will close on Sept. 1, 2014.

    Deal closes Sept. 1BY SHAUN THOMAS PORT CLEMENTS / The Northern View

    Haida Gwaii lost one of its champions last week as Port Clements Mayor Wally Cheer passed away on Aug. 20.

    Cheer was first elected to Port Clements council in 2006, serving two terms as councillor before being elected mayor in the 2011 election. After being medevac-ed to Vancouver following a heart attack on Aug. 11, Cheer passed away on-island in the community he loved and called home.

    Never one to shy away from service, Cheer was a committed volunteer and served on Port Clements tourism, centennial, barge and parks committee and also represented the village on the Misty Isles Economic Development Society, on the Vancouver Island Regional Library board and as an alternate director at the Skeena Queen Charlotte Regional District. Cheer was also one of the driving forces behind plans for a barge and terminal facility in Port Clements.

    Wally was very community-oriented and really loved Port Clements. He was very dedicated to this community, said Coun. Urs Thomas, who served with Cheer for two terms and will fill the role of acting mayor until the November election.

    We did a lot of work together, attended a lot of meetings and I really liked working with him ... we just have to find a way to carry on as a council.

    Skeena - Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen said news of Cheers passing hit him with a great deal of sadness.

    I really personally always liked him

    a lot. I knew he had been ill but I was shocked to hear he passed. He was a great advocate for his community and for the island in general. He was a great

    person and Im saddened I didnt get to spend more time with him, he said.

    North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice also commended Cheer for his efforts to improve the lives of people in Port Clements.

    Wally stepped up to serve his community and the loss of his leadership will be felt by us all, she said in a statement.

    I am so sorry to hear about Wally Cheers passing and I send my heartfelt condolences to his family, loved ones and the community of Port Clements.

    BY SHAUN THOMAS MASSET / The Northern View

    One man was medevac-ed to Vancouver and one woman was taken into custody following a stabbing in Masset earlier this month.

    Masset RCMP were called to a residence in the 300 block of Eagle Ave. at approximately 1 a.m. on Aug. 9. Upon arrival, members located a man who was suffering from a knife wound to the chest, a wound that was severe enough to require being airlifted to Vancouver for surgery.

    As well as the injured man, RCMP located and arrested a woman inside the home. Fifty-four year-old Valerie Brown of Masset was held in custody for Aggravated Assault and Assault with a Weapon pending her next appearance in Masset Provincial Court.

    At this time the investigation is ongoing and the Masset RCMP continues to work closely with the victim of this incident, stated Const. Matt Ericson, spokesman for the Masset RCMP, while encouraging residents to end the spread of rumours on-island.

    Police have determined the true facts of the case despite rumours that have been circulating through the community and social media. The Masset RCMP are reminding the community that false information or speculation can hinder an investigation and therefore concrete evidence and fact based information are essential for police to conduct a thorough investigation.

    The man made a recovery and was released in the following days. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Masset RCMP Detachment at 250-626-3991 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

    Man stabbed in Masset

    Amanda Bedard has caught the swimming bug not that she ever really lost it.

    After the Old Massett resident achieved a Canadian Top 10 finish in the 50m and 100m breaststroke at the World Masters Championships (FINA) in Montral earlier in August, Bedard is getting a head start on the Masters Canadian Nationals in 2015 and even the World Masters Games in April of 2017 to compete in the 35-39 age division in Auckland, New Zealand.

    However, training to compete in these meets isnt without its challenges.

    When I was a youth, I would practice seven to nine times a week in the pool plus dry land training. For a big meet like worlds, I would prepare with that [schedule] in mind for the entire training season, she said.

    Old Massett has no public

    access pool, so Bedard must cut back on the number of times shes able to train down to a small fraction of what she would like.

    With no pool, Im lucky to practice in a pool seven times every two months, if that. So I rely on dry land training and visualization, she said.

    Compared to the rest of the swimmers competing at worlds, Bedard thinks shes surely one of the few who arent privileged with pool time whenever she would like it.

    Im sure in this regard I was unique in the competition, with most swimmers having the privilege to train regularly, she added.

    What she does share

    with her competition is the responsibilities that go with training while maintaining a job and a family - obstacles that werent present in her younger days when she attended youth nationals in 1992 and 1993.

    Bedard swam to a 19th-place finish in the 100m breaststroke and 21st in the 50m. Her goal is to be in

    the top three for the 100m breaststroke race at Canadian Nationals next year. She also hopes to bring along fellow Masters swimmers Cheryl Paavola of Prince Rupert and Sheena Bartel of Kitimat to compete in a relay race to represent B.C.s northwest region against the countrys best next May.

    Haida Seafood Products is pleased to announce that seven Old Massett dive students have successfully completed the Restricted Surface Supply diver certification course delivered in Old Massett by DiveSafe International.

    The divers celebrated their graduation with family and friends on Aug. 24 at the Old Massett Seniors Hall. DiveSafe Internationals owner Kelly Korol said that he was very impressed with the students commitment and enthusiasm during the course and that they showed a natural ability and eagerness to learn and acquire this particular commercial dive certification that is required for geoduck aquaculture.

    Haida Seafood Products CEO Daniel Rabu stated that this was the first tangible milestone for the company planning to develop sustainable geoduck aquaculture on Haida Gwaii.

    Now that we have trained our first team of divers, the next step for us is to get the Province of British Columbia to grant us a tenure (farm site) and for the Federal Government to issue us a geoduck aquaculture license, which unfortunately has been held up by DFO as they continue to delay a new policy that would allow geoduck aquaculture in the North Coast, he said.

    We have been working with local, provincial and federal governments to facilitate this process but politics and bureaucracy keep slowing the process down ... I am hopeful that we will be breaking through the red tape soon and that we will be successful in putting our divers to work here on Haida Gwaii, close to home while creating some much needed employment. I believe that this will have a beneficial impact on the Islands economy and that one day, geoduck farming will set a new standard for sustainable aquaculture on Haida Gwaii.

    This past week, Haida Seafood Products sent one of its newly certified divers, Shaun Edgars, down to Courtenay on Vancouver Island

    for some dive work on a geoduck farm owned by one of Haida Seafood Products partners.

    Shaun will be getting valuable experience working with some of the best aquaculture divers in the industry. This is an exciting opportunity for him ... However, it is unfortunate that they have to go all the way down to Vancouver Island for work instead of working close to their family and community on Haida Gwaii. Nevertheless, we are grateful to our partner and their divers for the

    opportunity said Rabu. We are starting to see some

    encouraging results stemming from three years of planning and hard work and we look forward to announcing the building start of our shellfish hatchery in Sandspit, he said.

    Once we get the tenure in Haida Gwaii, all of our divers, and more, will start seeding the farm site and Haida Seafood Products will be on its way to sustainably producing some of the highest value seafood there is; geoduck clams!

    Moms taxi now closer to a family limo than a seven-seat vanHow many of todays NHL stars made those very early morning trips to junior practice in a minivan?Of course, we will never know for sure but you can bet the answer is in the 100s, judging by the tens of thousands of kids, enrolled in hockey, soccer and count-less other activities, who have been transported for the past 30 years in these people movers, pioneered Chrysler.Virtually every auto maker has a version though in recent years, with the ex-plosion of sport utility and crossover vehicles there has been a trend away from the vehicle dubbed moms taxi in the popular media. At first, that was an affection-ate moniker but of late, its come to be a disparaging term for these very efficient family carriers now described as multi-purpose vehicles.No, theyre not leading edge in looks for the most part but surely thats not why people still buy them in goodly numbers. Minivans are utilitarian but its also true to say that todays iterations are no longer glorified vans with seats. They come close to driving like sedans and the higher end models are a step away

    from limo status. The loaded 2014 Grand Caravan SXT version I drove recently certainly could lay claims to be much more than moms taxi. Premium cloth seats were inviting and supportive but the rear seating is perhaps the more interesting for those with aforemen-tioned early morning drive duties. The stowngo seats are ingenious, turning the Caravan quickly with the flick of a wrist from a seven-seater into . . . . dare I say . . . a van if

    desired. Power sliding doors and liftgate complete the convenience package.An area where the Caravan has made giant leaps is right upfront. The one-piece instrument panel is easy on the eye and easy to operate. An optional super centre console builds on the functionality, providing a lot of storage.Stepping outside theres an interesting innovation called the Stow n Place roof rack system, which enables the stowing of the roof bows into the side rails when not in use. There is an obvious cosmetic improvement but that would be a frivolous consideration. The ability

    to stow the roof bows a reduction in aerodynamic drag, wind buffeting and thus better overall efficiency.Under the hood is the truly tried and tested Pentastar 3.6-litre V6, matched to a six-speed automatic transmission. This power combination pumps out 283 horsepower but still remains frugal when it comes to fuel economy 12.2/7.9 L/100 kms.Driving in town with such a large vehicle is not so much of challenge as you might expect. The excellent vision provided by large windows helps when parking in those tight supermarket spots. Stop/go traffic on Highway One was not fun and certainly spoiled the fuel

    economy promise.That said, once rolling on the freeway, the Caravan hits its stride and return to sipping gas rather than gulping.The basic Caravan is anything but basic in its equipment tally and starts at $27,995. The tester was loaded to the gunwales with every bell and whistle and came in at $43,580. Take out the basic for the test drive then start adding the features you want until you run up against budget wall.Moms taxi is going to be around for a while yet and thats good news for sports oriented families and maybe even the National Hockey League.

    Subaru has been on a tear over the last few years, selling more and more vehi-cles to Canadians who the idea of owning a Japanese engineered all wheel drive (AWD) car. AWD is the secret sauce. We live in a country with inclement weather and the trend is to AWD as people experience it and want it in their next vehicle. If a car is offered with front-wheel drive (FWD) or AWD, most people will go for the latter. Subaru provides this as standard equipment on all its cars, except the sporty BRZ that was co-developed with Toyota. Subaru then layers on more power and sporty features into their compact car, the Impreza, to develop the WRX and WRX STI rally-inspired cars. These have been incredibly popular, once again, because they come with AWD and the closest competitors do not.LooksBack in 2011, Subaru introduced the WRX to look like the bolder and more powerful STI version, complete with bulg-ing fender flares, hood scoops and aggressive attitude. This really helped to propel the WRX into another gear in terms of sales. To follow up on this idea, the latest 2015 model too has an edgy design similar to the more powerful STI version. It is the same overall length as the last model but the wheel-base is longer, making bigger doors and the designers were able to slope the front and rear windows and crop the roof a tad, to provide a sleeker profile. The front grille now has a more polished look but the wheel size is only 17-inches, making the car look too big for the size and track of the wheels. The STI only comes with 18-inch wheels that are too small as well. One big advantage is the side mirrors have been moved from the windshield pillar to the door, making the side class much bigger for improved outward visibility.InsideAs wonderful as the last WRX was in terms of handling and power, the interior let it down. It was too bland, especially

    considering the top STI models can cost well over $40,000. This 2015 has been vastly improved but has a few niggly items that could be improved. The dash is covered with soft touch materials, the centre console has a better design, with a three easy to use heat and ventilation controls. The rest of the dash has been cleaned up with a much better looking design and more attention to colours and textures. The radio and accompanying Bluetooth system was horrible to pair with my Android phone and I had to do it several times after the initial pairing procedure to stay connected. The armrest for the driver is far too low to be of any use and the speedo and tach readouts are far too small to read quickly. Plus, the key needs to used to release the trunk, I couldnt find a trunk resale anywhere on the car. What the WRX does have is room for all passengers with big doors and very easy access, with a bigger trunk (once you can get it open) than the last model. DriveWhat the WRX is all about is providing a sporty drive and now it is available to a wider range of buyers thanks to a new automatic transmission. Subaru wants to sell more cars, not less, and by adding an automatic for a generation of buyers who might not know how to drive stick, is a major

    step. This is not your average automatic, it is a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that has one gear but the ratio of the gear is changed. This, along with the standard 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo with 268hp, produces a surprising snap at all speeds. Yes, a 6-speed automatic is still available but this new CVT makes the WRX easy to drive in town and it can fly when it is placed in the sportiest setting. Other than the new automatic, the most notable change is the much stiffer suspension and tighter steering feel. The front springs are 39% stiffer than the last WRX and the rears are 62 percent stiffer. This, along with a more rigid platform and tighter steering makes a very sharp feeling car. It might be too sharp for buyers who live with very bumpy roads.VerdictSubaru has done a good job with the WRX, the STI and the BRZ. Sporty design, powerful engines and AWD help but so too does price. The starting price is $29,995 and the most expensive WRX is $36,795. Compared with the closest competitors, the VW Golf GTI and Ford Focus ST, this car is right on the money but comes with AWD, whereas the others dont. As much fun as this car is, even with the new automatic, the small details need to be improved.

    Escaping the city heat for the cool of the high country

    Curb lane passing

    People who pass in the curb lane rather than take a free left lane are nuts.Theres nothing illegal about their choice on a multi-lane road buts asking for trouble the least being caught behind parked cars. The other danger is people are oriented to checking the left when driving not the right. They should check both before changing lanes but the reality is they dont.

    What drives-u-crazy?

    On a muggy, scorching hot summers day, what better vehicle than the aptly named Highlander for a high-altitude scenic drive to find some cool, crisp mountain air and sink a foot in a glacier.All-new for 2014, Highlander Hybrid is the fuel-efficient and eco-friendlier version of what Toyota describes as its mid-sized SUV, but it sure looks and feels bigger than most in this class, plus it can seat up to seven (or eight). Wider and longer than last year, this Highlander is also lower and, more importantly from a driving perspective, it has a lower centre of gravity.There was a time when Highlander looked like an SUV, with an angular two-box design. Its styling lines have softened with successive redesigns and now if you put Highlander beside its Camry-based wagon sibling, the Venza, you need a second look to tell them apart. Not sure if thats a good thing, but I do like its more car-like driving dynamics.Not far south of the Canadian border, Mount Baker is a gla-cier-covered mountain that rises 3,286 m (10,781 ft) above sea level, which is over 900 m (3,000 ft) higher than Whistler, the best-known mountain in BC. Mount Baker is also regarded as the second most active volcano in the Cascade Mountain Range, after Mount St. Helens, but theres been nary a puff since 1880.The Mount Baker Highway (Hwy. 542) starts in Bellingham (exit #255 off the I-5), winds east through a number of small communities and offers some interesting side tours along the way, before it climbs steeply and ends at Artist Point (1,567 m / 5,140 ft.). This large parking lot, which is about 10 km beyond the ski area, is closed during the winter months and has spectacular panoramic

    views, plus a selection of great hiking trails. The highway crosses the Nooksack River at Nugents Corner and tracks east, alongside the north fork of the river, through old growth areas in the Mount Baker Snoqualmie National Forest. Allow about 1.5 hours of leisurely drive time in each direction. Youll also need a $5 day pass to park, which you get from auto-mated dispensers at the Glacier Public Service Center or at Heather Meadows near the skiing area. The Hybrid Synergy Drive system in Highlander uses a 3.5L Atkin-son Cycle V6 gas engine, a high torque electric motor-generator

    and powerful traction battery. It boasts 10 additional horsepower (280 net horsepower) over the gas-only model, yet uses almost 30 per cent less fuel.Although Toyota has done an admirable job of masking it, High-lander Hybrid is a weighty (2,200 kg) vehicle, and has the usual characteristics of a heavy vehicle. Its more than fine in a straight line and while handling is laudably predictable, it didnt seem to like being tossed around on the twisty sections of the highway. Then again, thats the norm in this class of vehicle.

    You probably will recover that extra investment in this Highlander hybrid while doing your eco-part to save a world that looks pretty good from high up on Mount Baker.Bob McHugh

    If a car is offered with front-wheel drive or AWD, most people will go for the latter.Zack Spencer
