    Nathan Cullen said Canadas Minister for Fisheries and Oceans is as absent as this years sockeye salmon run causes closures around B.C.

    The Skeena-Bulkey Valley MP slammed Minister Gail Shea for not being involved during a crisis of record-low sockeye salmon numbers in the Skeena River this year.

    We cant seem to get their attention at all on what we think is a significant crisis in the fishery, the absence of such an important fish, Cullen said.

    Just getting some basic response from her office is incredibly difficult. This is no time for her to take vacation. This is a fishery that needs

    support. Certainly if this was happening on the east coast she would be all over it, but because its happening out here it doesnt seem to be as important. Thats a shame because shes the federal fisheries minister, not just for one region.

    Cullen said the ministers absence is all too familiar.

    Weve seen this rodeo when she was [the

    Minister of Fisheries and Oceans] before. It took almost a year to get her to visit the North Coast, and then she showed up without any understanding, he said.

    The minister ... is doing just as good as a job as she did last time, which is to say terrible.

    The Skeena-Bulkey Valley MP said Canadians on the west coast have justifiably began to feel like second class citizens.

    My hope was she learned ... heres her first test. Were weeks into this thing and shes as missing as the salmon, he said.

    Shea was unavailable for comment, however Sophie Doucet, the ministers spokesperson, said the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans has been working to address the issue.


    The loan to the Prince Rupert Airport Authority approved by city council to refurbish the terminal, runway and access road is not yet a done deal.

    Although the bylaw has been passed, the agreement signed and the paperwork for the $7 million loan has been forwarded off to the Municipal Finance Authority (MFA) for approval, under the Community Charter, a municipality borrowing money to loan to another public authority must seek out the approval of the electorate.

    Once the City of Prince Rupert receives approval of the MFA, the borrowing will need to either be approved via referendum or through an alternate approval process, under which a referendum would be sparked with 10 per cent of registered voters signing a petition against the borrowing.

    Larry Golden, who attended the Aug. 19 council meeting, is also questioning why the airport deal was passed during an in-camera session a session that did not have the airport matter on the agenda. According to the agenda for the in-camera meeting, council was to discuss honouring an individual, Watson Island and the annual municipal report.

    Acting mayor Gina Garon did not immediately respond to repeated requests for comment from the Northern View.

    Our government recognizes the importance of salmon to British Columbia, which is why in Budget 2013 we announced $10 million to support local groups working to improve fisheries habitat. We have also dedicated all funds collected through the sale of Salmon Conservation Stamps to the Pacific Salmon Foundation and its many partner organizations for the funding of conservation projects in B.C., Doucet said.

    The ministers spokesperson lashed back at Cullen for his comments.

    I hope Mr. Cullen will explain to his constituents why he voted against millions of dollars to improve the fisheries habitat. It seems as if he may be more interested in playing politics than actually helping the fishery, Doucet said.

    Cullen said he would like to see the federal government put resources into finding out what happened to the fish, meet with fishermen and First Nations on the west coast and respond to what was heard to be more supportive of the fishing community.

    The Prince Rupert School District is ensuring students know when and where to be at their schools on Sept. 3, to prevent the I didnt know excuse from being used.

    All our schools are up and running ... its business as usual, Sandy Jones, superintendent of the Prince Ruperts School District, said.

    Its really important students come on that first day and get ready to go.

    Parents of kindergarten students will be notified of their childrens starting time on Sept. 3 by their school.

    Grade 1 to 5 students from elementary schools around the district should be at their school at 10 a.m., with the first day back ending at noon.

    New students entering Grade 6 at Prince Rupert Middle School will have to be at the school from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Sept. 3, at which time they will go to their first-term classes.

    All other PRMS students should be at the school at 10:30 a.m., and are expected to be done with their first day back to school by noon.

    The school district wants Charles Hays Secondary School (CHSS) students to know the importance of high school students attending the

    first day of school to ensure they have a seat in classes they need.

    High school students in Grade 9 and 10 must be at CHSS at 9:45 a.m. on Sept. 3, with Grade 11 and 12 students starting their first day at 1 p.m.

    Pacific Coast School students should be ready to start their first day of the school year at 10 a.m., with students expected to be released at noon.

    Any young people new to the Prince Rupert School District are

    now able to register for the upcoming school year. Parents or students who know which school they should be registering at are able to sign up until Aug. 30. Anyone unsure can contact the board office to find out. This includes students registering for kindergarten.

    On the first day of school, buses and ferries schedules to transfer students will line up with the special start times.

    The return to school also means the return of school zone speed laws.

    Shaun Thomas / The Northern ViewStudents will be heading back to schools across the city next week, including Pineridge Elementary.

    By Shaun ThomaS PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    Prince Rupert council isnt a fan of the idea of banning longboards from city streets but, following a presentation by Const. Maury Tyre, they will take steps to regulate the popular sport more closely.

    Tyre came to the Aug. 19 meeting at the request of council, and spoke about the dangers associated with longboarding.

    There is a really good chance someone is going to end up dead when they are hit by a vehicle while riding a longboard ... there have been deaths related to the use of longboards, but more so to do with the attitude than the equipment, he said.

    It is an issue. We see a lot of it because we drive around at night a lot, and that is when we receive most of the complaints.

    Other municipalities have taken a variety of steps to address the issue. Victoria, for instance, banned longboards while North Vancouver treats the boards more like bikes but with different rules, including the need for helmets, reflective gear and a spotter at intersections before making a turn. Other municipalities, said Tyre, have put in place similar rules but have also taken the step of banning longboards from certain streets.

    Currently, the City of Prince Rupert has a bylaw in place that prohibits rollerblades, skateboards, skis and sleds from the streets, but it is rarely enforced and comes with only a $25 fine.

    Councillors said a fine simply wasnt enough and directed staff to review the bylaw.

    Possible recommendations include to ban the boards entirely on 2nd Ave. West and McBride Street, increase fines and regulate the hours of operation.

    With longboards, Im not sure there is enough area to put the necessary reflective tape on to let people know they are there. Im not sure it shouldnt be OK during the day but not at night, said Coun. Anna Ashley, who found support in Coun. Judy Carlick-Pearson.

    If parents are willing to let them

    do a sport so high risk, they should be willing to help educate them and pay for unsafe behaviour. I would like to see something like a $45 fine for a first [unsafe behaviour] offence, $75 for a second and confiscation on the third, said Carlick-Pearson.

    Coun. Joy Thorkelson said something needs to be done soon before someone gets seriously hurt.

    Where I live, they go down 6th Ave. East, past Pjs, turn down George Hills Way and then turn on to Dry Dock Road, and every time they do it it makes me sick to my stomach watching, she said.

    I believe there is a difference between a bike and rollerblades or a longboard because bikes have brakes. I feel you have more control on a bike.

    Shaun Thomas / The Northern ViewConst. Maury Tyre discusses longboarding safety as Councillor Anna Ashley looks on.

    City to regulate longboardingNews

    In ShorT on The longBoard

    A longboard is a wider, elongated form of a skateboard.

    Instead of street-style skateboarding using ramps and pipes to do tricks, longboards are generally used for downhill racing or transportation.

    Longboards are heavier than a standard board and are not ideal for doing tricks.

    Longboarding is compared to surfing, such as surfing on land or surfing on concrete. The design of the longboard allows higher speeds and bigger turns

    A longboard is defined not only by its length or width but also by its wheels, which are usually larger and softer than a skateboard.

    Most longboards use trucks (axles) that allows the longboard to be turned at varying angles. This, along with the size of the deck and wheels, gives the longboard an ability to coast for long distances making them more suitable for street cruising than skateboards.

    Mischo Erbane, of Vernon, B.C., broke a Guinness World Record going 129.94 km/h on his longboard on June 18, 2012.

    There are many differences between the traditional skateboard and the longboard.

  • If there were ever any question that city council makes its decisions in-camera before meeting with the public, last Mondays meeting should put those doubts to rest.

    Heading into the meeting, the agenda showed the Prince Rupert Airport Authority would be making its case to council about supporting a $7 million loan for needed improvements to the terminal, runway and access road. During the

    presentation, council kept telling the airport reps they would be voting on the loan later in the meeting, under the bylaws section of the agenda.

    Little did they know, or anyone in the public know, council had already approved the loan during an earlier in-camera meeting, rendering the whole presentation and the vote on the bylaw

    completely moot. And as if to pour a bit of salt in the proverbial

    wounds of open and transparent government, the announcement that council had authorized the city manager to enter into an agreement with the Prince Rupert Airport Authority behind close doors came right before council was to publicly vote on the subject.

    Ouch.Of course council is allowed to meet behind

    closed doors for a number of reasons, as long as they reference the applicable section of the Community Charter on the agenda for the in-camera meeting. In this case, council was to discuss honouring an individual, Watson Island, and the annual municipal report.

    If you can figure out how an agreement approving a $7 million loan for the airport through the Municipal Finance Authority fits within these criteria, you may yet have a job in municipal politics.

    The reality is there was no reason, outlined on the agenda or not, to vote on this in-camera, and to do so before the group needing the money has plead their case to the public is a slap in the face.

    This latest incident gives just another black eye to a council that has been in a fight to gain the trust of the voters. Its one from which they may not be able to bounce back.

    Another black eye for council

    Nathan Cullen got it right.Like a blind carpenter, Cullen was repeatedly swinging away and missing the nail in a mailout to constituents earlier this month.

    But after whack, whack, whack, he finally hammered home the nail with one strong and single stroke.

    The Senate is unelected and unaccountable, it costs Canadian taxpayers $92.5 million per year and most senators only work about 70 days per year. The Senate is less and less about sober second thought and more and more about kickbacks and entitlements which has no place in a 21st Century democracy like Canada, Cullen stated.

    During the late 80s, a Triple-E senate (equal, elected and effective) was the acronym of the day in most of Western Canada.

    Bert Brown was carving EEE into barley fields, Stanley Waters was, yes, actually elected to the senate by the province of Alberta and Preston Manning was even giving a rookie journalist in Vermilion, Alberta plenty of time to ask his questions.

    For a time, it appeared that the affront to the Canadian taxpayer that is the Senate would be fixed.

    But again Liberal and Conservatives continued to, as Cullen states, appoint lackies to feed off the taxpayer teet for one selfish reason or another.

    There is only one reason there has been just one NDP senator Lillian Dyck and why its a safe bet for NDP leader Thomas Mulcair and Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen to call for the abolition of the Senate they never have won an election and unless Jack Layton is reincarnated, its doubtful there will be an Orange Wave big enough any time soon.

    Regardless, they have it right.Even with the recent debacle of former

    journalists Pamela Wallin and Mike Duffy, senate abuse of the taxpayer is systemic and crosses all party lines and governments. Its nothing new and as weve seen right here in Prince Rupert, any chance for a politician to charge something up to the taxpayer, they will do it.

    Government is expensive but necessary.We know that the Senate is expensive, but is it necessary?Aside from the party politics, Cullen hit the nail on the

    head no it is not. It does absolutely nothing to justify its existence.

    Forget a Triple E Senate, how about a Single E Senate? Eliminated.

    Cullen is right, its time for a Single E Senate

    On the street

    Do you agree with the city loaning the airport authority $7 million for repairs?

    With Shaun Thomas


    No, I dont think so. If they need the repairs, then by all means.

    I disagree with it. We cannot afford it.

    I am glad they are doing it. Its about time they do

    something out there.

    Letters to the editor Partnership is the key to safe vessel transitsA paramount role in any world-class port is that of Harbour Master. This is the team that leads the collaborative efforts for ensuring the safety of navigation and the security of operations within the harbour limits.

    The Prince Rupert Port Authoritys Harbour Masters team is working closely with its many partners to coordinate the 450+ vessel calls expected in 2013. In this column weve looked at the roles played by each of those partners. Its time to put it all together to follow a commercial vessel from sea to terminal.

    A full 96 hours prior to arrival in Prince Rupert, Transport Canada requires a report from an inbound ship. This report lists its last ten ports of call, validates its security clearance certificate, and guarantees there are no major mechanical issues or deficiencies with the vessel.

    At the same time, Canadian Coast Guards Marine Communications and Traffic Services (MCTS) begins tracking that vessel, and a ships agent in Prince Rupert is contracted to represent the interests of the vessel while it is in our waters.

    At 48 hours prior to arrival, the Port Authority adds another layer of safety and security. It begins to track the approaching vessel through the Port Security Operations Centre (PSOC). PSOC monitors the vessel using the electronic Automatic Identification System (AIS), supplemented by cameras that visually track ship movements within harbour limits. The security administered by PSOC is conducted in collaboration with Canada Border Services Agency and the RCMP, and is manned 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

    When the commercial ship reaches the marine pilot station at Triple Island, it is boarded by a BC Coast Pilot. The pilot meets with the ships captain on the bridge, completes a team briefing with the bridge staff and assumes navigational control. If the vessel is going to anchor in the harbour to await loading at a terminal, the Harbour Masters team will assign and communicate which of the 30 anchorage positions the ship will use.

    If the vessel is going directly to a terminal berth, support from the tugs of SMIT Marine will be mobilizing around this time. This tug service is ordered by the ships agent, but the number and type of tugs required for safe navigation and docking can be improved at the discretion of the BC Coast Pilot and the captain of the ship, as they consider factors that include wind, tide, current and ship specifications.

    Tugs typically join inbound ships in the vicinity of the Kinahan Islands. Vessels proceeding to the outer harbour berths at Ridley Island are escorted by tugs and under the Pilots control are maneuvered to berth. Container ships inbound for the inner harbour have a tug tethered to the stern of the ship. When a tug is tethered, it attaches itself by a line or steel wire rope and is able to provide direct control, keeping the big vessel safe and on course.

    Once the ship is approaching a terminal berth, a smaller tug will join in and assist in docking by pushing against the bow of the ship. From the time the first tug joins, the tug operators and the BC Coast Pilot are in constant communication to coordinate the speed, timing and force used to gently bring the ship safely alongside the terminal. The successful transit of commercial vessels in and out of the Port of Prince Rupert happens every day. Its the result of teamwork by many dedicated, professional port partners and stakeholders.

    Photo courtesy Prince Rupert Port AuthorityMANY HANDS MAKE SAFE WORK: Each of the commercial vessels calling on the Port of Prince Rupert is supported by a team of partners including the Harbour Master. All vessel movements involve a BC Coast Pilot aboard the ship and tug support when docking or departing berths.

    RE:PORTRE:PORTRE:PORTHamilton owes an apology

    Editor: Re: Move over Pamela, here comes Jennifer,

    Aug. 21, 2013Mr. Hamiltons unfair attack on North Coast

    MLA Jennifer Rice demonstrates a clear lack of understanding of the cost involved in serving constituents in rural and remote communities and the circumstances Ms. Rice faced this July.

    As a new MLA sworn in just a couple of weeks before the rare summer session, Ms. Rice found herself going to Victoria for a month with no time to consider any options other than representing the people of North Coast. My guess is the circumstance was exactly the same for all the new Liberal members, but we dont know that as they have not released their expenses.

    Anyone who flies to Victoria from anywhere on the North Coast knows it is more expensive then getting to Toronto from Vancouver. Ms. Rice made the return trip every week for a month so she could work in her constituency on weekends.

    While Ms. Rices expenses were higher than her Northern colleagues bills, as a new MLA she had to stay in hotels as, unlike them, she didnt have access to previously arranged housing. It takes time to find housing in the

    capital, and time was in short supply during the hastily called summer session.

    Finally, Mr. Hamilton comparing Ms. Rice to Senator Pamela Wallin is comparing a hard working elected official with legitimate expenses to an unelected senator under investigation for fraudulent behaviour. His comments are irresponsible and I would hope after reconsideration Mr. Hamilton will apologize to Jennifer Rice for his over-the-top rhetoric.

    Jennifer Rice is a smart, hard-working young MLA who is committed to the representing the people of the North Coast. I fully expect her to do an outstanding job for many years to come and the communities who elected her in 2013 will continue to get great value from her service.

    Shane Simpson, Chair, New Democrat caucus

    I would hope ... Mr. Hamilton will apologize to Jennifer Rice for his over-the-top rhetoric.

    - Shane Simpson

    Get over it, ToddEditor: Get over it, Todd. Jennifer Rice has been elected by the voters of

    the North Coast riding. Your constant whining about her makes you lose any credibility you may have left. Comparing her with Pam Wallin is nonsense. Yes, most of us agree our MPs, Senators and MLAs getting generously compensated, but I do not see any party rolling back the pay and

    expenses. To single out Jennifer is just a poor political stunt and does not help to bring good discussion about the whole issue of expense payment and salary for our elected officials.

    Some balanced editorials would be more appreciated, than your cat calls from the sideline.

    Lutz BuddeOona River

    Is LNG worth it?Editor: I am a Vancouver guy who just came up the

    coast, cruising from Bella Bella to Rupert. I believe this is the only part of the province that lives up to the billing Best Place on Earth.

    I fished these beautiful waters and experienced the coast teeming with life. There are not many places like this in this world anymore. Drove from Rupert to Terrace, most beautiful drive I have done in my life. Ive only to learn that the Skeena is being

    treated with such disrespect by a multinational oil and gas company, whose proposed development threaten rivers very future. I am sure the locals are all over this seeing that the LNG plan is going to be in very important juvenile salmon habitat.

    Ill keep coming up there every summer for the rest of my life it I can, but if it all goes to [expletive deleted], nobody will. Tourism vs. LNG who is going to give you more jobs and at what cost?

    Thorkelson is wrong about longboards

    Editor:I am writing you because of

    the comment Councillor Joy Thorkelson said regarding bikes vs. longboards: I believe there is a difference between a bike and rollerblades or a longboard because bikes have brakes. I feel you have more control on a bike.

    This is actually a false statement.

    Im sure she is unaware, for she has never been on a downhill skateboard. But those who have taken the time to learn control throughout the many high speed situations of downhill skateboarding/longboarding can actually maneuver themselves with more control than that of a cyclist. It has been proven that a longboard can slide to a stop in the same amount of distance a road cyclist can, if both were going the same speeds.

    Say a guy on a road bike was going down a mountain pass, coasting around 40 mph creeping up toward 45 mph. A car appears in the upcoming blind right sweeper. By time the cyclist squeezes his brakes to a complete stop, a longboarder would have already came to a hault, but from a choice of several methods.

    However to the outsider, everything on a skateboard appears dangerous, unsafe, juvenile, crazy, illegal, especially at speeds of 40, 50, and 60-plus mph. But in all reality, those riders are the ones with all the focus. During those brief moments of life, the only thoughts in your mind have to do with what is in front of you.

    The foundation of the downhill experience is to ultimately figure out how to operate in the present; to intimately co-exist with gravity. Thoughts of worry, stress, everyday things of life do not matter anymore.

    For some, it is a life and death experience. For others, its therapy. And for the veterans, it is the only source of adrenaline that can quench their thirst.

    Airborne dust complaints in Prince Rupert arent the citys responsibility.

    Council and city staff said they are receiving complaints about higher levels of dust from the waterfront road owned by CN.

    The dust issue was raised at the Aug. 19 city council meeting. Council was told the increased levels of dust is due to construction of the Pinnacle Renewable Energy pellet terminal.

    Coun. Joy Thorkelson asked what the city could do about dust, and if there were tools to deal with concerns. Council was told if the city feels the responsible agencies are not doing enough to address concerns, it can turn to a nuisance bylaw or other regulations the city has in respect to industrial behaviours.

    But it is not the citys responsibility

    to ensure the dust problem is dealt with.

    While the Westview Terminal is situated on Prince Rupert Port Authority land, the roadway itself belongs to CN.

    Emily Hamer, from CNs public and government affairs section, said CN has only received one complaint, and the company is reviewing the situation with our customer on the road where some construction is being done.

    Hamer did not immediately respond to requests for further comment by The Northern View.

    Michael Gurney, manager of corporate communications for the Prince Rupert Port Authority, said the port doesnt have a record of any complaints made directly to them about increased dust in the air because of construction of the pellet

    terminal, nor has the city forwarded any complaints to the port.

    Gurney said if people have dust complaints they would like to bring forward, they are encouraged to call the ports community information line.

    We will address the issue with Pinnacle Renewable Energy group and or with CN as the situation demands, he said.

    Leroy Reitsma, president and chief operating officer of Pinnacle Renewable Energy, said the port has warned the company and all other groups that use the road to be careful with speed of vehicles.

    Its not a Pinnacle issue per se, its more one that were aware of and weve been making sure that the contractors were utilizing to construct the facility have an increased enforcement level there, he said.

    Dust complaints misdirected

    On Aug. 19, at approximately 12:30 p.m, members the Prince Rupert RCMP responded to a complaint of the theft of a boat from Seasport, located at 295 1st Ave. East. The complainant advised the boat had been locked up at the front of the business, and that the theft had occurred sometime during the previous night. The boat is described as a 12-foot aluminum Princecraft Ungava which is blue and silver in colour. RCMP is asking anyone with information about this theft to contact the Prince Rupert RCMP Detachment at 250-627-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).


    Traffic light welcomed


    Despite pessimism by Prince Ruperts school district and city council, the request to have a traffic light installed on the 9th Avenue and McBride Street intersection will be acted upon by the Ministry of Transportation.

    The ministry confirmed it will be installing a pedestrian-activated signal with a stop light for traffic on McBride Street at the intersection this fall to ensure Prince Rupert Middle School students are safer when crossing Highway 16. A ministry spokesperson said an exact start date for the project hasnt been determined.

    Tina Last, chair of Prince Ruperts school board, said she was thrilled to hear the news.

    I think it will be great for the students, and will provide more safety for them as they cross a very busy street, she said.

    Ken Minette, principal of PRMS, was also pleased to hear the announcement.

    This has historically been a concern of mine, even when I was working at Charles Hays. I would pass that crosswalk and think some poor child is going to get injured, he said.

    What Ive noticed is drivers dont seem to regard that crosswalk like they do others. Theres a tendency for kids to have to wait quite awhile while drivers sweep by them.

    Minette said the new pedestrian-activated signal will also keep drivers safer, as more parents have been dropping their children off at PRMS since it was converted into a middle school. The increase in traffic has created congestion on 9th Avenue during the morning and after school.

    A ministry spokesperson said the budget for materials and installation is $156,000 and will be installed this fall.

    Though 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 neighboring 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.

    Despite the name, many Canadians dont labor 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 3rd of September 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.

    Because Labour Day is a recognized holiday, bank and government offices will be closed. Some stores or restaurants may be working on holiday hours, as will public transportation. Knowing this in advance can help you plan accordingly.

    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 captain 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.

    Labour Day is a time to relax and enjoy the end of summer. Plan ahead so it can be a fun time for all.

    Be safe this Labour Day

    The stars of the Vancouver Canucks are coming to the North Coast early next month, giving fans a chance to see some of their sports heroes up close and personal.

    The Canucks will be in Prince Rupert on Sept. 7 at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre and on Sept. 10 in Old Massett.

    It is only going to be people who have played games for us, so Dan Hamhuis, Kevin Bieksa, David Booth, Alex Burrows, Roberto Luongo, Alex Edler, the Sedins, Jannik Hansen, Zack Kassian, Jason Garrison, Ryan Kesler, Chirs Higgins, Dale Weise, Andrew Alberts, those are the guys that are going to be there, said Canucks general manager Mike Gillis.

    I think guys are really exited about it. Im really excited about it. We have such tremendous support throughout the province of British Columbia and due to the hectic schedule year-to-year we dont have a lot of opportunities to get out into some of the more remote communities and interact with people. I would certainly like to do more of it going forward ... as an organization we think it is vitally important that we try and connect the best we can with our fans.

    Along with meeting fans, the team will be doing some fishing off Haida Gwaii, something Gillis said is part of getting ready for the season.

    We had been talking about doing a team-building orientation weekend somewhere removed the players dont have a whole lot of access to and we decided we were going to go on a team-building and fishing trip up north. In conjunction with that, we were going to visit a couple of communities and have different native bands that are there come and visit us because they dont have access to the players very often, he said.

    It is an opportunity to try and give something back to people that dont have the ability to have a lot of access to the team and participate in their cultural events. It gives us a chance to meet some people who we know are big fans and always support the team. It is a unique way to combine a couple of things ... our schedule is limited by the ability to fly into places. Training camp begins on Sept. 11, so it is going to be a really compressed couple of days.

    New-look Rampage ready for CIHL seasonPrince Rupert to host Northern Challenge Cup


    The ice is in, the skates are sharp and the Prince Rupert Rampage are busy getting ready for the 2013/2014 CIHL season.

    The Rampage spent last week in the arena with Lou Lamire Hockey School in preparation for the not only the season, but the 2013 Northern Challenge Cup that will take place in Prince Rupert from Sept. 20-22.

    Lou Lamire has done a really good job with this camp, everybody is getting in shape and its just the start of the season so its going good, said returning team captain Jared Meers, noting what a difference it is to have the ice in the arena before the fall season.

    We didnt have the ice for the first

    part of the season last year and that made not too many people show up. This year, that is a little bit better.

    The season kicks off against the Quesnel Kangaroos on Oct. 5, and Meers said the team is looking to improve over last year when the Rampage finished last in the league with 10 points and a 4-12-2 record.

    The focus for this season is to try

    and get more wins and get out there and get more team chemistry than last year, he said, noting there will be plenty of action on the ice for fans to enjoy.

    There are going to be a lot of tough games against Kitimat, Terrace and Smithers, but weve got a good team this year too. We have a lot of veterans, a lot of young guys and everyone is growing up as a team so it should be a good year.

    The last time the Rampage hosted the Northern Challenge Cup a preseason tournament that pits the Rampage against the Kitimat Ice Demons, the Terrace River Kings and the Smithers Steelheads in pre-season games they took the tournament title.

    It should be some good preseason action here in Prince Rupert, said Meers.

    We have a lot of veterans, a lot of young guys and everyone is

    growing up as a team.

    Minor basketball gets new sponsor for seasonBY SHAUN THOMASPRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    Prince Rupert Minor Basketball received a significant financial boost last week from a $10,000 donation by Prince Rupert Constructors (PRC).

    The money will be used to keep registration costs low for the expected 200 players that will take to the courts beginning on Sept. 16.

    PUBLIC NOTICEKitsault Mine Project Public Comments Invited

    August 23, 2013 The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is conducting a comprehensive study type environmental assessment for the Kitsault Mine Project located in British Columbia. The public is invited to comment on the Comprehensive Study Report for this project.

    The Comprehensive Study Report includes the Agencys conclusions and recommenda-tions regarding the implementation of mitigation measures and whether or not the project is likely to cause signicant adverse environmental eects.

    The Comprehensive Study Report and more information on this project are available on the Agencys website at (registry reference number 57958). All comments received will be considered public.

    Copies of the Comprehensive Study Report are also available for viewing at the following locations:

    Written comments must be sent by September 22, 2013 to:

    Kitsault Mine Project Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency410-701 West Georgia StreetVancouver, BC V7Y 1C6Telephone: 604-666-2431Fax:

    This is the nal public comment period on the environmental assessment of the project. After this public comment period, the federal Minister of the Environment will take into consideration the Comprehensive Study Report along with comments received from the public and Aboriginal groups and issue an environmental assessment decision statement.

    This project is being assessed using a science-based approach under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. The project is also subject to requirements under the Nisgaa Final Agreement (NFA), a modern treaty signed by the governments of Canada, British Columbia, and the Nisgaa Nation. Canada is committed to fullling its obligations under the NFA before any nal decisions on the project are made.

    The Proposed ProjectAvanti Kitsault Mine Ltd. is proposing the construction and operation of an open-pit molybdenum mine, located approximately 140 kilometres north of Prince Rupert, British Columbia, and south of the head of Alice Arm, British Columbia. The proposed annual ore production rate would be 40 000 to 50 000 tonnes per day over approximately a 15-year operation period.

    The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) is extending the public comment period for the Pacific NorthWest LNG terminal on Lelu Island following concerns raised by environmental groups.

    As outlined in last weeks issue of the Northern View, the Tbuck Suzuki Foundation and West Coast Environmental Law sent a letter calling upon the agency to reopen the public comment period due to the Skeena River missing from the map originally submitted by the company due to scaling issues. In response to the letter and recognizing the potential confusion as a result of this technical issue, the CEAA will further consider additional funding under the Participant Funding Program and extent the public comment period for the project until Sept. 20, 2013.

    The agency strives to ensure that the

    information provided on its website is accurate and corrected the information as soon as the new map was provided, said CEAA spokesperson Karen Fish.

    The agency makes every effort to review and ensure quality control on the material provided by proponents. The agency appreciates comments and counts on feedback from stakeholders as part of its goal to continuously improve.

    For its part, Pacific NorthWest LNG said it had no problem with the extension.

    Pacific NorthWest LNG welcomes any opportunity for public comment on the project in fact we have been in the community for over a year actively seeking out comment from the public on the project. We take those comments back to our engineering team to look for mitigations, said Spencer Sproule, senior advisor of corporate affairs.

    We hope to be in the Port Edward-Prince Rupert area for decades so we want our project to incorporate feedback from the residents in

    northwest B.C.Both groups involved in the initial

    complaint welcomed the news, but said this matter raises more questions.

    The case of the missing Skeena may be resolved, but the broader question of whether the Canadian Environmental Assessment process will deliver for British Columbians remains

    outstanding, said Jessica Clogg, executive director and senior counsel, West Coast Environmental Law.

    We need to move beyond a piece-meal approach and ensure that we are taking a comprehensive, strategic look at the cumulative impacts of all of these proposed LNG projects on the things British Columbians value.

    Missing Skeena River cited as reason

    The Northern View archivesThe Skeena River has been added to the map in Paci c NorthWest LNGs project description, but its initial absence due to scaling has prompted the CEAA to extend deadlines.

    The Wheelhouse Brewing Company has hit some snags, and have had to push back the opening date.

    Wheelhouse partners James Witzke, Kent Orton and Craig Outhet hoped to be making their first beer sales this spring, and have the business doors open this summer. But Witzke said the brewery isnt likely to be open for at least two more months.

    The Wheelhouse partners are almost done renovations to the brewing space, but are waiting to get their final gas certification on the system.

    The brewers were also planning to build a tasting room on the front of the buildings exterior, but are still waiting for the citys approval.

    Because of some city issues, and some soil issues on the front, were not going to be able to build just yet, Witzke

    said. The soil outside is contaminated. Its been

    contaminated for years and years ... for 60, 70 or 80 years that spot has been a dumping ground. Theres lots of heavy metal contamination.

    The city has done the initial inspection on the soil to see how badly contaminated it is. Witzke said some spots are in bad shape.

    The city has to develop a remediation plan to determine what the best steps are to take care of the soil. Unfortunately its a timely process that also costs money, Witzke said.

    We know where the city is financially, so its not something thats happening overnight.

    The entrepreneurs have been waiting for more than a year for approval already, and have decided to build a temporary tasting area inside the brewery.

    We had hoped we would have a little bit more support

    from the city to get us up and running. The tasting room is going to be the feature of our entire system. This is just a brewery where we make it. But where we sell it and draw people in is going to be the tasting area, Witzke said.

    A website meant to connect workers with skilled jobs expected from industrial development in the coming years is now active. has its roots in a committee set up several years ago by BC Hydro to consider the number of direct and indirect jobs that could come from its Northwest Transmission Line now under construction.

    That committee then added other potential industrial developments, including the prospect of liquefied natural gas plants, to its list and a commissioned a report indicating there was a gap between job skills of northwest residents and those that would be needed to work on the projects.

    British Columbia has tremendous opportunities for economic prosperity over the next 10 years, and we need to ensure that skills training is aligned with the jobs on the ground in sectors and regions across this province, said provincial jobs minister Shirley Bond in explaining the committees work and websites purpose.

    There are provisions on the website for companies to post jobs, for people to learn more about overall job opportunities and the money available to take training programs.

    One key element is making sure there are trained people on hand to meet the requirements of large industrial concerns.

    With an expected creation of 6,000 (approx.) jobs between 2011-2021 in the region, now is the right time for you to integrate with this prospering economy and reap the long-term benefits, reads one information item on the website.

    Money for the website and other work comes from a $550,000 federal/provincial grant, the second such grant provided to what is now formally called the Northwest Labour Market Partnership.

    The Terrace-based Skeena-Nass Centre for Innovation in Resource Economics (SNCIRE) has the contract to manage the website and pursue other programs to connect people with employment. Although primarily meant for northwestern residents, Bond said the website will interest others as well.

    The current $550,000 budget runs out the end of November although the website is intended to last a lot longer than that through renewed government support.

    The trio believes they will have hiccups with the brewing system smoothed out this week, and will be able to hook the system up. But that doesnt mean they can begin selling beer just yet.

    Witzke explained while it takes eight hours to brew beer, it takes three weeks to a month to ferment it.

    It doesnt matter from Day 1 that we brew, its going to take a month to be able to sell our first product. So unfortunately were still realistically at least two months away [from opening], he said.

    In the meantime, the Wheelhouse trio is continuing to perfect their beer, tweaking recipes as they prepare to open. There will be two mainstay beers that will

    always be available for purchase in 340 ml bottles, the first being a golden ale.

    Its going to be a smooth, crisp, easy-drinking ale thats going to be great on a hot day, Witzke said.

    The second mainstay beer is a west coast pale ale.

    Its going to be a [more hop-flavoured] beer, thats a little bit more robust, and snappy, Witzke said.

    There will also be seasonal beers available in 650 ml bottles, which Witzke said will be more playful and complex.

    Witkze said Outhet is the brewmaster, who comes up with the recipes and perfects them with Witzke and Orton.

    Were still not 100 per cent on our recipes yet. Were close, but not there yet,

    Witzke said. While the brewery is still a couple

    months away from being open, Witkze encourages people to stop by the brewery for a taste.

    Were down here working most evenings ... folks are always welcome to come down here and try a glass, Witzke said.

It is something that we constantly remind ourselves of and we actually begin all of our meetings with a safety moment to help us keep this topic top of mind. As you and your families wind down the summer, we wanted to take a moment to put safety top of mind for you also.

    Safety reminder:

    Are you a Do as I say,

    not as I do aggressive


    A recent AAA study revealed that many drivers have adopted a Do as I say, not as I do attitude about driving safely. Here are a few highlights of the study, but be warned, the information might hit home.

    People believe aggressive driving is one of the most serious traffic safety problems.

    In a 2008 AAA survey, 78 percent of survey respondents rated aggressive drivers as a serious or extremely serious traffic safety problem, yet nearly half of these same people

    reported exceeding the speed limit by 15 mph on major highways in the past 30 days.

    Substantial numbers also admitted accelerating to try to beat traffic lights, honking at other drivers, tailgating and pressuring other drivers to speed up.

    Driving in excess of the speed limit or too fast for conditions is a major contributor to aggressive driving, and is a contributing factor in nearly one of every three fatal crashes.

    As many as 56 percent of deadly crashes involve one or more unsafe driving behaviors typically associated with aggressive driving.

    It is very important for drivers to honestly assess their own driving practices.

    The Prince Rupert British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (BCSPCA) has lofty goals for the 2013 Paws for a Cause.

    Prince Rupert BCSPCA branch manager Anna Terebka said the Prince Rupert 2012 Paws for a Cause walk raised $1,200, but this year the group is aiming for $5,000.

    Because we always run at a huge deficit, we dont have the capability to do those above-and-beyond special projects. Once we break even, any [additional money] we raise can go toward other projects, Terebka said.

    Funds raised at the Sunday, Sept. 8 event goes toward the shelters basic operating costs, such as medical costs for the animals, and keeping the building operating.

    The BCSPCA doesnt receive any provincial or federal government funding, and is reliant on donations to operate.

    BC SPCA branches across the province respond to cruelty calls, and provide shelter and medical attention to neglected and stray animals while trying to find them a loving home.

    Medical costs can be expensive. Terebka said many of the cats and kittens entering the shelter have upper respiratory disease, and require treatment right away. Many also come in with fleas and parasites.

    There are also the uncommon medical problems Prince Ruperts branch must

    address.Recently, a kitten, now eight weeks

    old named Rio, was found at the garbage dump with a seriously injured eye.

    When she came in her eye looked like it was popped. We booked her for surgery to have her eye removed, but the vet decided it would be better to take the third eyelid and fold it over ... to try and save her eye, Terebka said.

    While the method was more cost-effective, it is possible Rios eye will have to be removed anyway.

    Additionally, every animal sheltered at Prince Ruperts SPCA are vaccinated for a number of medical issues, and are spayed or neutered.

    Prince Ruperts SPCA branch has been an advocate of a spay or neuter program, which Terebka said would resolve the shelters capacity issues, meaning it would have to turn away less animals in need.

    If everybody spayed and neutered their animals, we wouldnt be in this mess. Once theyre born you have to take care of them, she said.

    We watch the suffering, and know spaying and neutering is the No. 1 solution.

    The most common problem the branch

    is contacted about is about abandoned or stray cats and kittens. Terebka estimates the branch receives a call a day and hates not being able to save them all.

    I fall asleep at night, and have these cat and kitten faces scroll past my face, she said.

    Other projects Terebka would like to start are kids summer camps and other educational programs to help inform people on animal advocacy, and the importance of spaying and neutering pets.

    Terebka said she would also like to see a low income fund for caring people struggling to take care of their animals.

    While these projects arent currently financially possible, Terebka hopes in time Prince Ruperts branch will be able

    to initiate them. In the meantime, Terebka hopes the

    2013 Prince Rupert Paws for a Cause walk can help raise some much-needed money.

    On the day of the event, participants will gather at Mariners Park, where some games will be taking place. Registration will begin at 11 a.m., with the walk starting at noon. Participants will walk from Mariners park down to Rushbrooke and back. After the walk there will be pizza for participants.

    People can register online at Youth can register for free, with adults being able to register for $25. The fee includes free pizza, a T-shirt and entry into three games. Pet owners are encouraged to pre-register by Sept. 5.

    BY JANE WILSON PRINCE RUPERT / Special to The Northern View

    Seventeen-year-old Stefan Robinson was one of six youth from Kitkatla attending the Enhanced Training Session (ETS) held by the Junior Canadian Rangers (JCR) in Vernon Aug. 8-19.

    Stefan said it was his fifth time attending the summer program and his first time attending as a mentor for the younger Junior Rangers.

    Going to ETS is always the best part of my summer, said Stefan, and being a mentor was an amazing experience.

    The mentors act as first level supervisors for the JCR attending Basic ETS, said Captain Scott Macdonald, Officer Commanding of the JCR programme, which is an initiative of the Canadian Armed Forces providing a structured youth programme promoting outdoor and traditional skills in remote and isolated

    communities across Canada. In doing so, the team of two JCR Mentors in

    each section act as the role models, manage the daily routine, supervise training activities, and get to know the 13 JCRs in their section. Throughout the ETS, the JCR Mentor gets to know their section members very well, thereby understanding their needs and being able to assist when they are having difficulties, said Capt. Macdonald.

    As a mentor, Stefan joined the younger JCRs in repelling, mountain biking, canoeing, and stand-up paddle boarding, he said, but what he enjoyed most was getting to know the other JCRs, the best part was getting to know everyone else, making new friends, people who comfort you when youre far away from home.

    Among the other activities the youth participated in was the Pay It Forward campaign, which has the young JCRs performing tasks for not-for-profit

    organizations that could use their help.

    The Pay it Forward program is our way achieving a few different aims, said Capt. Macdonald, who said the program is geared to both instill an interest in community volunteerism in the youth, as well as, to say thank you to the community of Vernon for hosting the JCRs for three weeks.

    The youth volunteered in a number of capacities for local organizations, including several outdoor projects and a mission in support of the homeless. Capt. Macdonald said he was particularly excited to have the youth working with the North Okanogan Gleaners, an organization which takes extra vegetables from the communities of southern B.C. and processes it into dried soup mix for distribution to the Third World.

    During the event last year

    the JCRs volunteered at the Armstrong Spallumcheen Museum and Art Gallery, helping with painting projects and moving a pump organ up several flights of stairs, said museum administrator Sherrie MacFarlane,

    They really did a lot of stuff we wouldnt have been able to do otherwise. When we found out they were coming back, we were elated, said MacFarlane

    Stefans group helped out at the Allan Brooks Nature Centre in Vernon, helping with weeding invasive plant species for the non-profit habitat protection and education organization. He said he enjoyed the work and thinks its great that the kids are learning about the value of volunteering.

    I cant wait to come back and be a mentor again next year, he said.

    Haida Gwaii

    Biofuel industry pitched as island alternative


    As communities on Haida Gwaii seek alternatives to diesel generation for power, a report to the Village of Port Clements suggests biofuel could be the key to moving forward.

    The 11-page report, prepared by Reg Renner of Atticus Financial Ltd. and Jim Abbott of Haida Gwaii Forest Products, indicates there is more than enough fuel readily available to meet the needs of the island.

    Counting local sawmill waste from Haida Gwaii Forest Products, there are approximately 20,000 bone dry tons (BDT) of fuel per year within a 25 kilometre radius of Port Clements. This represents almost 384,000 Gigajoules (GJ) of readily available thermal energy each year. By comparison, estimated current thermal heating energy use on Haida Gwaii ... [is] approximately 31,000 GJ/year, read the report, submitted to Port Clements council on Aug. 19.

    The report does not suggest replacing the entire fossil fuel infrastructure of the community with woody biomass, but there is a time and place and leadership has a responsibility to start looking ahead to how we might replace fossil fuels with local, sustainable and renewable energy crops ... with proper management, the prevalence and availability of this material has the potential to transfer the burden of supplying heat to the community from fossil fuels to local renewable biomass.

    Haida Gwaii currently has no facilities capable of producing pellets and imports them

    from Prince Rupert, essentially cancelling out any benefits.

    Haida Gwaii communities have sufficient waste wood fibre to start a biomass thermal energy business that could benefit the communities in multiple ways. Some of these benefits would be lower heating costs, reduction of slash pile burning, improved fire hazard abatement, restored ecosystems, additional employment and sustainable, non-imported thermal energy, read the report.

    Therefore, it is our recommendation that if wood pellets are considered to be suitable thermal fuel for Haida Gwaii, and if local consumption is sufficient to justify the economics of value-added compressed fuels, then a plan should be established for the building of a local wood densification plant.

    Before any project moves forward, the authors recommend public forums be held to gauge support and complete preliminary engineering work.

    Once public forums and basic engineering reports have been completed, then the next step would be to go to public tender and make a formal request for proposal, the authors recommend.

    Leadership has a responsibility to start looking ahead to how we might replace fossil fuels.

    - Reg Renner and Jim Abbott

    Despite rising fares and looming service cuts, top executives at BC Ferries still collected big performance bonuses this year.

    President and CEO Michael Corrigan got a $64,421 incentive payment on top of a base salary that was up eight per cent to $364,000 for a total of $563,000 in overall remuneration the maximum allowed after a cap on payouts was put in place last year.

    BC Ferries executive compensation disclosure says Corrigans bonus reflects his exemplary leadership that was borne out by the corporation beating its financial target for the 2012-13 fiscal year.

    Chief financial officer Robert Clark got more than $133,000 in incentive pay and executive vice-president Glen Schwartz got an extra $127,000 based on performance.

    Both of their bonuses were almost twice as high as a year earlier and the two collected close to $500,000 overall.

    None of the payouts are anywhere near as high as the more than $1 million that

    former CEO David Hahn received in some past years until he left the corporation and the government eliminated additional long-term bonuses and imposed the compensation cap.

    Managers were eligible for their full incentive pay this year because of the $15-million surplus BC Ferries posted for last year.

    In the previous two years, they got only half as much incentive pay because the corporation missed its financial targets.

    But NDP critic Nicholas Simons said the new surplus is a fiction because of the $21.5 million in additional subsidies the province injected.

    The only reason they got their full bonuses was because the government provided that increased service fee, Simons said.

    Transportation Minister Todd Stone wasnt available for an interview but issued a statement saying the executive payouts send the wrong message at a time when BC Ferries is struggling to reduce its expenses.

    He said he will speak to the BC Ferries board to outline the provinces

    expectations for all executives at Crown corporations.

    While BC Ferries isnt a Crown corporation, they do receive provincial government funding and we would expect them to follow suit, Stone said.

    Government is tightening its belt, along with many British Columbians, and I believe that BC Ferries should take the same approach.

    Simons, however, said the BC Liberals have had plenty of time to act.

    Four ministers in a row have been

    saying how disappointed or disturbed or shocked they are when they see this exorbitant compensation, Simons said. The reality is theyve done nothing about it.

    The Powell-River Sunshine Coast MLA said his constituents are apoplectic because theyre ferry-dependent and have seen fares rise on average 75 per cent over the last 10 years.

    BC Ferries has reduced its executive by almost half and cut their overall salaries by more than 50 per cent, Stone noted.

    Rice outspends

    FraserBy Shaun ThomaSPRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

    North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice spent more than twice that of opponent Judy Fraser during Mays provincial election, though she was given much more money from the party to campaign on than Fraser.

    Rices total income came in at $67,194 for the campaign, a figure that included $18,208 in private contributions and $48,736 from the NDP. Rice accepted no donations more than $100 from companies on the North Coast, but accepted a $12,000 donation from the United Food and Commercial Workers Union and $300 from the United Fishermen and Allied Workers Union and an additional $150 from other trade unions. Individual contributions for Rices campaign accounted for $5,467.

    Total expenses for the campaign totalled $75,551 including $49,898 for election expenses during the campaign and $19,260 transferred to the Jennifer Rice Campaign. The balance in the campaign account as of May 14 was $9,190.

    Elections BC said election financials are under review, but part of the reason Rices expenses may have been more than her income are due to election laws that may count one donation as two expenses. For example, the organization cited law whereby a donation of signs used during the pre-election and election periods would count as two expenses.

    Fraser, meanwhile, had an income of $46,545.88 that included a transfer of $27,425.88 from the BC Liberal Party a full $21,311 less than the NDP gave Rice. Included in the $18,870 collected outside the party was $13,150 from businesses and commercial organizations and $5,720 from individuals.

    Frasers expenses totalled $36,911.31, a full $38,640 less than Rice, with $33,399 spent on expenses during the campaign period. As of May 14, the campaign account balance was $13,751.02.

    The BC Liberal Party provided Fraser with far less than her counterpart in the Skeena riding. Carol Leclerc, running under the BC Liberal banner, was given $72,625 from the party, a difference of $44,800.

    Green Party candidate Hondo Arendts income was just $96, and his only listed expense was the $250 candidate registration fee.

    The City of Prince Rupert will examine a number of options to regionalize the airport, but no decision will be made until council meets for a workshop on the subject later this year.

    In a report to council, staff outlined the savings that could be realized if the city changed the way the airport is run.

    Over the past five years, the average is an approximately $800,000 per year subsidy coming from the tax base ... to cover that we would have to add a $14 per passenger user fee on top of what the airport collects, explained acting chief financial officer Corrine Bomben.

    Considering the communities served and benefiting from this airport extends beyond the taxpayers of Prince Rupert, a cost sharing model should be considered that reflects the regional service that access to the airport encompasses, she wrote in a report to council.

    Council was given four options to help offset the cost to taxpayers, each with various advantages.

    The first was to implement the $14 per person user fee previously discussed, which would increase one way travel for a family of four by $56. However, staff noted this would likely deter people from using the airport at all, causing them to choose the Northwest Regional

    Airport in Terrace, or to not fly at all.The second option would be to

    approach the Skeena Queen Charlotte Regional District about including a fee on the taxes they collect from the surrounding areas and have that amount provided to the City of Prince Rupert as a grant of sorts to recognize the regional nature of the airport.

    The third option would be to come to a cost sharing agreement with communities that either directly or

    indirectly benefit from the airport based on the most recent Stats Canada population information. Staff noted this would split the costs between a much larger population.

    The fourth option, listed as an alternative to all of the above, would be for the regional district to completely take over the airport, Digby Island ferry, the docks and the road to the airport to establish the airport as being regional infrastructure with regional benefit.

    Shaun Thomas / The Northern ViewThe City of Prince Rupert is hoping to regionalize the Prince Rupert airport to offset an annual taxpayer subsidy of approximately $800,000.
