    Ice carnIval...

    Prince Rupert Middle School students construct an inflateable ice castle as part of Carnival dhiver on Feb 1. This is the first year the school honoured the Fracophone event, where children chose two of 10 activies held at the school throughout the afternoon. In place of actual ice, teacher Wil Barrow offered students this engineering challenge with duct tape and celophoane.

    Proposal made to ship oil from rupertBy Shaun Thomas

    The Northern View

    Prince Rupert could one day be exporting oil if a proposal by Nexen Energy proceeds.

    The Calgary-based company, which is in the midst of a $15.1-billion takeover by China National Offshore Oil Corporation, has spent over a year working on a plan to move oil by rail to an export terminal on Ridley Island. Nexen has been in discussion with the Prince Rupert Port Authority since late 2011 and the Globe and Mail reports a piece of land on Ridley Island has been selected for a potential export terminal.

    Prince Rupert Port Authority manager of corporate communications Michael Gurney said not much is known about the proposal.

    We are approached all the time by many different companies to

    move many different commodities through Prince Rupert. We have had discussions with Nexen, but they have been very, very preliminary, he said, noting there would need to be a thorough environmental assessment done before this project moved ahead.

    Gurney also said he could not confirm the location of any potential oil export terminal on the North Coast.

    I cant give a lot of specific information because this is not yet a project, it is a concept.

    For its part CN said it will not rule out the movement of oil along its track to Prince Rupert.

    city opposing rTI sale

    By Martina PerryThe Northern View

    The City of Prince Rupert doesnt want to see Ridley Terminals Inc. (RTI) sold into the private sector.

    Council decided to express opposition to the sale at the Jan. 28 city council meeting, more than a month after the Federal Government announced its plan to sell Ridley Terminals.

    Selling Ridley into the private market caused confusion for councillors because of the success the operation has seen over the past few years. Previously, the Federal Government had to subsidize RTI to keep it running, with government support deteriorating from $4.5 million a year to zero. Additionally, operating profits at Ridley grew from zero to $33.5 million annually since 2005.

    Furthermore, RTI is expected to make even more profits due to undergoing expansions that will see the terminals annual shipping capacity increase from 12-to 24- million tonnes by the end of 2014.

    The most vocal member of council against the sale was councillor Joy Thorkelson.

    rice considering optionsBy Quinn Bender

    The Northern View

    Jennifer Rice will remain on City Council during her run for North Coast MLA, but whether she steps down in the event of a victory is a decision shell make then.

    Its too early to decide, she said. Its something Ill have to evaluate after the election.

    There are no laws prohibiting Rice from holding two seats of public office simultaneously in either the BC Community Charter or Elections BC rules.

    Rice said there are many options to consider, but admits holding the two positions is probably not recommended. Rice may also allow her council seat to simply expire if she won the MLA seat, and let the two positions to overlap in the 13 months between Mays municipal elections and the September sitting of Legislature.

    I really want to talk to my council about that, said Rice. Its a collective decision.

    Rice was nominated as the BC NDP candidate for North Coast Jan. 26 at Fishermans Hall in Prince Rupert. She has held her seat on City Council since 2011.

    Jury members listened to the Queen of the Norths emergency radio broadcast in a Vancouver courtroom Jan 31. The recording offered a moment-by-moment account of the disaster that is believed to have claimed two lives, after the ship ran aground on Gill Island and sunk soon after. The recording reveals the BC Ferries crews confusion over their exact location and chronicles the ships evacuation and rapid assistance from fishing vessels in the area.

    At 12:22 a.m. a distressed crew member radioed the Prince Rupert Coast Guard saying the ship had run aground and required assistance.

    And confirm you are not taking on water, says a Coast Guard dispatcher.

    We are taking on water, replies a ships crew member. He informs the Coast Guard 101 people are on board. The coordinates are relayed but shortly after the Coast Guard tells the Queen of the North that position is incorrect for Sainty Point. Before a precise position can be relayed, a crew member says the ships list is increasing and they are in need of immediate assistance.

    The Coast Guard issues a call for help to which a shrimp vessel responds. After coordinates are again relayed by BC Ferries crew, the next broadcast is dispatched from an officer in the life rafts.

    The Queen of the North has been abandoned and its listing, he says. Maybe tell people to stay clear of it.

    Roger, and its confirmed theres no one left on board? asks the Coast Guard.

    Were attempting to confirm that right now.

    The operator of a private vessel then joins the broadcast, saying he is circling the Queen of the North looking for any stranded passengers, but none can be seen.

    Survivors were brought aboard fishing and rescue vessels then ferried to safety in Hartley Bay or the Coast Guard ship Sir Wilfrid Laurier. But controversy arose after crews gave inconsistent information on how many people were on board and how many made it off alive.

    Passangers Gerald Foisy and Shirley Rosette were never seen again and presumed drowned.

    Karl-Heinz Lilgert, the fourth officer aboard the Queen of the North when it sank, is facing two counts of criminal negligence causing death.

    While CN is not moving crude oil to Canadas west coast ports for export purposes today there is no infrastructure in place at those ports to unload crude oil from rail cars to vessels the Company cannot preclude the possibility of such traffic in future if the infrastructure is built. CN has common carrier obligations under law requiring it to move traffic when its tendered to the railway, explained CN director of communications and public affairs Mark Hallman.

    CN supports the development of Canadas natural resources and seeks to give industries effective access to markets. CNs commitment is to provide efficient transportation services for all goods, including crude oil, in the safest and most environmentally responsible manner. This commitment extends to all of our customers and the communities through which we operate.

    Skeena Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen, who has been vocal in his opposition to the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline, said although talks between Nexen and the Prince Rupert Port Authority were

    very preliminary, he will be taking a thorough look at the proposal.

    Oil by rail has been dismissed by energy companies not just because of the risks but because of the cost. I would have to look at the numbers, but regardless I believe they are talking about thousands of rail cars carrying oil moving through our communities on a thin track that has a history of accidents... [Nexen] is now a Chinese government initiative, and Im not sure they have Canadas best interests in mind, he said.

    Im going to apply the same test I applied to the proposed pipelines, which is the potential costs versus the potential benefits, and will consult with people in the northwest about it. I dont know that my opinion would change just because the oil is now moving on rail... I

    dont know if were just jumping from the frying pan and into the fire with this.

    The prospect of oil on rail caught the attention of 16 environmental groups who banded together to warn CN about pursuing the idea.

    Should CN decide to try to move forward with its proposal, it would face major opposition and risks to the company. We urge you to stop any forward movement with shipping tar sands oil by rail through British Columbia, reads the letter, signed by groups such as Greenpeace Canada, Friends of Wild Salmon, the Living Oceans Society and the T.Buck Suzuki Foundation.

    Transporting tar sands to the port of either Kitimat or Prince Rupert is unprecedented and would result in the introduction of oil tanker traffic to Canadas North Pacific coast. The risks to coastal fisheries and tourism jobs, as well as to cultures and communities who reside there, are too great.

    Cullen raised concerns about the safety record of rail, something CN said is solid.

    Railways have a solid record in transporting hazardous material traffic. According

    to Association of American Railroads, 99.9 per cent of hazardous material carloads moved by railroads are accident-release free. CN has improved its safety record. In 2012 CN had the lowest Transportation Safety Board of Canada Main-

    Track Accident Ratio on record. And none of CNs 2012 main track accidents caused the leak of dangerous commodities, said Hallman.

    Repeated calls and e-mails to Nexen communication officials went unanswered.

    why is the government getting rid of the cash cow? It seems to me to be inane. It was okay for the government to have it when it was [putting] $4.5 million into it a year. Now it makes $33 million a year and were going to sell it? she said.

    Thorkelson said she worries if there were a contraction in the coal mining industry and the new terminal operator decided to close it down,

    there would be little the City could do to stop it.

    If private enterprises decide to close it in the future because of a loss, we will have no recourse. Its too much part of our community to allow that to happen, she said.

    Thorkelson moved the City communicate to both the federal and provincial governments that the City of Prince Rupert objects to the sale of Ridley Island Terminals and believes the government should maintain operations at RTI.

    Then, Thorkelson moved to suggest the government provide revenue sharing on operations going through Prince Rupert as a new way of raising income.

    If the Canadian budget is so wealthy, they can turn over that $33.5 million over to the City of Prince Rupert every year, Thorkelson said.

    This is the second time

    the Federal Government has attempted to sell RTI in the past decade, first putting the operation up for bidding in 2005. Back then Fortune Minerals was identified as the preferred buyer, bidding $20 million to be paid over 40 years.

    However, the Federal Government cancelled the sale in 2006 after receiving resistance from the Provincial Government, the North Central Local Governments Association (NCLGA) and the user groups at Ridley.

    Concerns raised from the previous sale process made the Federal Government commit to protecting the interest of the users by promising RTI will continue to operate in an open access manner. The government stated thats non-negotiable and if no such bids are made RTI wont necessarily be sold.

    Another condition of the sale is that controlling interests in the company will not be sold to state-owned companies outside of the country.

    The west end of town is quieter now that a project by the Prince Rupert Port Authority and CN rail has eliminated the needs for trains to whistle at water-front crossings.

    The projects crossings are located at the entrance to Fairview Harbour and the BC Ferries crossing. As opposed to simple signage before, the new signals flash bright red lights and emit a bell-ringing sound when a train is within one quarter mile of the crossing to stop vehicles and pedestrians. Because of the additional safety measures, trains are no longer required to whistle as they make their way to the CN lands downtown.

    We have heard from Prince Rupert residents that they wanted us to find a better way a quieter way to ensure safety on our waterfront, and thanks to this cost-sharing project with our partner CN, we have been successful in assem-bling the proper infrastructure to do just that. This project is another example of the emphasis we place on maintaining sustainable growth with input from our community members, said Gary Paul-son, vice president of operations for the

    Prince Rupert Port Authority.The addition of these new signals

    and fencing to Prince Ruperts busiest crossings will enhance public safety and enable CN to reduce whistling noise in the community as CN strives to meet the fast-growing needs of Prince Ru-perts Fairview Terminal, said CN gen-eral manager Doug Ryhorchuk.

    However, engineers will still sound their whistle if they see a person, vehicle or object on the tracks.

    The safety of our employees and the residents in the communities through which we operate is the highest priority for CN, said Ryhorchuk.

    Fencing along 800 metres of the track between the two crossing has been installed to prevent people from passing outside of the designated areas.

    minister to discuss LNg

    By Rod Link Black Press

    The province is sending up a cabinet minister to speak with northwestern communities about how they can benefit from potential liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities in the region.

    As many as five natural gas pipeline construction or expansion projects and an accompanying number of LNG plants at both Kitimat and Prince Rupert are in the works, carrying a price tag in the tens of billions of dollars.

    We are committed to working with the local municipalities to ensure they are prepared for this growth and have a say in how the benefits are realized, said Premier Christy Clark on Feb. 1 in announcing that community development minister Bill Bennett is headed north.

    The City of Terrace has already taken the lead on developing a framework so that municipalities are in line for revenue sharing from proposed industrial developments. Its arguing that while development takes place outside of municipal taxation boundaries, municipalities are often hard-pressed to provide services needed as populations and economic activity increases.

    A magnitude 6.0 tremor last week near Craig, AK, was just one of tens-of-thousands of aftershocks that researchers are monitoring as part of a new scientific study to better assess the likelihood of where the next earthquake will strike, and with what force.

    Dr. John Cassidy, an expert in earthquake seismology with Natural Resources Canada, has zeroed in on the rare research opportunity to study two powerful temblors that struck just 70 days and 300 kilometres aparta 7.7-magnitude earthquake near Haida Gwaii last October, and the 7.5-magnitude earthquake Jan. 4 off the coast of Alaska. One of

    the research goals is to determine whether these two events are somehow related.

    You dont know if it will be some amazing new discovery, said Cassidy, or some run of the mill thing. Thats just the nature of research.

    Additional instruments have been installed on Haida Gwaii to measure surface movements from the smaller aftershocks to get an accurate picture of the seismic fault and how it slipped. For the past month newly-placed instruments on the sea floor have also been collecting data, which will help determine whether the quakes have added pressure to the fault.

    The goal of the monitoring and the research is to understand where

    earthquakes are more likely to occur in the future, how the ground will shake and for how long you can expect it to shake, he said.

    Cassidy confirmed there has been more seismic activity than usual in the region, but its mostly attributable to aftershocks rather than new earthquakes.

    The 6.0 aftershock last week occurred at almost the precise location as the 7.5 quake in January.

    It struck shortly before 1 a.m. Jan. 31, roughly 100 kilometres west of Craig, AK, and 10 kilometres beneath the surface. There were no reports of damage and the United States Geological Survey stated there was no danger of a tsunami. Cassidy said aftershocks like this are finally subsiding and should cease within four weeks.

    Haida Gwaii has seen almost non-stop shaking for months. A lot of those wouldnt be felt, but there have been a number of four- and five-magnitude aftershocks for the first few weeks or month that people would have felt every few days. Very, very frightening for the people there.

    And now after the 7.5 earthquake in Alaska, many of

    those aftershocks have been felt on Northern Haida GwaiiMasset. so theyre now feeling aftershocks from the South and the North.

    Since Octobers earthquake, Haida Gwaii has experienced more than 40,000 aftershocks.

    All of that information will help us be able to better model tsunamis and predict tsunami effects, to what controls earthquakes and where we can expect them in the future, Cassidy said.

    What we learn from Haida Gwaii will help us better calibrate our models so we can be better prepared.

    Following a peer review from seismologists around the world, Cassidy hopes to publish the results of his research in the next few months.

    The Prince Rupert area will receive funding for one of 45 new nurse practitioners positions approved by the province last week.

    The money will be used to continue the work of a practitioner already in the area, working with First Nations for primary care services and chronic disease management in Hartley Bay, Kitkatla and Lax Kwalaams. Until

    the Ministry of Health announced the funding, Northern Health would have needed to find other financial options to keep the valuable service in tact.

    The work she does is huge, said Gayle Anton, Northern Healths regional director for primary health care.

    The folks in those areas dont have access to primary health care, and she brings that to them. Its a big deal to have someone going out there

    and building those relationships.A nurse practitioner allows

    patients with high needs to access consistent primary health care through an interdisciplinary health care team, including general practitioners, diabetic educators, physiotherapy and liaison with the local hospital.

    My hope is that more British Columbians will find out how nurse practitioners can help them better access the health-care

    services they need, said Rosemary Graham, president of the British Columbia Nurse Practitioner Association.

    Nurse practitioners were introduced to B.C. in 2005 to assist in improving access to primary health-care services. Currently, 252 nurse practitioners are registered with the College of Registered Nurses of B.C. The Province has the ability to educate up to 45 nurse practitioners per year.

    In October 2012, the ministry announced new regulations to allow nurse practitioners to admit and discharge patients from health-care facilities, working in collaboration with physicians and other health-care providers.

    A total of five nurse practitioners were appointed to areas under the Northern Health Authority: Prince George, Nakazdli and Tlazten, Old Masset and the OminecaLakes District.

    Prince rupert to receive a new nurse practitioneru healTh care

  • In 2001 George W. Bush became the President of the United States, Gordon Campbells BC Liberals defeated the NDP led by Ujjal Dosan-jh, and a terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre killed thousands and launched a years-long war in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    In the years since, the world has changed to such an extent that it makes your head spin. New laws have been put in place regarding air travel, Saddam Husseins reign in Iraq came to an end, the Reform Party and Progressive Conservative Party united to hold the balance of power in Parlia-ment and the boom of the oil industry in Alberta has forever shaped Canadas economy and divided much of the country in the debate around economy vs. environment.

    These things are something that every student should know about, as they have shaped not only the lives of the people in Canada but changed the face of international relations forever. This is particularly true of students taking a senior-level social studies class.

    But dont look for any of this information in the textbooks handed out to students in Social Studies 11 at Charles Hays Secondary School. The text-book to be used this semester is copyright 2001, a full 12 years ago.

    To put that into perspective, most of the students taking the class would have been four or five when that book came out, and it hasnt changed since.

    Thats right, the information contained in the book includes results from the 2000 election, the Prime Minister-ship of Jean Chretien and the Lib-eral Party and a small snippet about the war on Napstera file sharing application that shut down in July, 2001 and declared bankruptcy in May, 2002.

    One certainly hopes that the students will learn about all of the above post-2001 changes, likely in that same class from the teachers. But they wont be learning it from the textbook handed out at the start of the year. The textbooks are still great for historical subjects, and include a comprehensive look at World War II, but aside from that they seem fairly useless.

    Its hard to find blame for the textbook debacle. The teachers have to work with what is given to them and the school board has to work with the minimal financial resources that are given to them by the province.

    If ever there were a demonstration of the need to move from textbooks into the digital era, this book may well be it. Whether setting up computers for the students to use or moving to easily-updat-able digital textbooks, the time for this change has long since passed.

    In fact, all of the information in this editorial about what happened in 2001 came from the In-ternet.

    This Sunday begins one of my favourite times of the year - All Native time. There is just something

    about the All Native Basketball Tournament that hooks you in. I know people, myself includ-ed, who would never watch a basketball game in an arena or on TV but will take in games at the All Native whenever the opportunity arises. Unlike the NBA, these are everyday peo-ple taking to the court for the love of the game and the pride that comes with winning, not for an over-inflated paycheque and celebrity status. These peo-ple take time off work to come to Prince Rupert and, when the tournament is done, go back home and return to work.

    That is commitment. Just as important as the

    players on the court, are the fans off the court. If you want to experience a unique atmo-sphere, head to a game be-tween two north coast Nations.

    Whereas sports fans in an arena are generally very vocal in support of the home team, at the All Native there is no home team. Duelling chants break out in the stands, drums beat as the lead changes and any acts perceived to be unsportsman-like are met with a unanimous show-er of boos from everyone in the stands.

    The atmosphere in the divi-sion finals of the tournament really have to be seen to be believed. It is pretty indescrib-able.

    But the All Native is about a lot more than just basket-ball, it truly has evolved into a cultural and social gathering that is beyond compare in the northwest. The opening cere-

    monies are always a sight to behold (get your tickets early for the event at 8 p.m. on Sun-day), artisans and vendors put tra-ditional First Na-tions crafts and food on sale in the auditorium (try the fried bread) and the hallways of the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre are packed wall-to-wall with people of all ages

    reconnecting with friends and family from throughout the province.

    For some families, this is their annual vacation and it comes at a great cost when you take into account food, hotels and tickets for a full week.

    That brings us to a point that simply cannot be understated: Prince Rupert is very fortunate to host the All Native Basket-

    ball Tournament year-in and year-out.

    For a full week thousands of people flood the streets and stores of Prince Rupert, mak-ing the town bustle with activ-ity. The hotels are filled, the restaurants are packed and the stores are much busier than normal.

    There is nothing definitive to say how much the tourna-ment brings in, but past esti-mates put the figure at between $3-million and $4-million each year. Thats a huge economic boom for the community and something not to be taken for granted.

    Terrace and Kitimat have both tried to lure the tourna-ment away, and I shudder to think what effect that would have in Prince Rupert.

    So next week go and check out a game or two. At least go check out the happenings at the civic centre. Youll be glad you did.

    Its All Native Tournament time!

    New anchorage trial makes room to grow One of the Port of Prince Ruperts greatest strategic advantages is the deep, nat-ural harbour that welcomes ships of all sizes. At any moment there may be a dozen ships at anchor in the inner and outer harbours waiting to load or unload goods at the Ridley Island or Fairview terminals.

    The Prince Rupert Port Authority is always pursuing opportunities to improve existing practices and procedures for both on-shore and marine operations.

    With the recent increases in cargo volume moving through the Port comes an increase in ship traffic. As well, proposed future projects have the potential to see more diversity in the types of cargo vessels calling on the Port of Prince Rupert.

    With the potential for fast-paced growth in mind, the Port Authority recently began exploring changes to the location and number of anchorages in Prince Ruperts harbour.

    Beginning December 10th, 2012, the Prince Rupert Port Authority launched a twelve-month trial for newly-created number designations and anchorage positions.

    This trial was the result of a formal Anchorage Review, which showed a need to shift and expand several existing sites. It also warranted the creation of additional anchorages to handle additional marine traffic in the Prince Rupert area.

    Participants in the review included the Pacific Pilotage Authority, the BC Coast Pilots and the BC Chamber of Shipping, who have all agreed to test the new anchorages throughout 2013. The Port Authority will also be consulting First Nations, fishermen and other local user groups early this year to gather feedback about the trial anchorages.

    Regardless of the type of vessel, its size or the cargo it is carrying, it is our duty to ensure that all commercial marine traffic visiting the Port of Prince Rupert is safe and secure while in our waters, said Gary Paulson, Vice President of Operations and Harbour Master for the Prince Rupert Port Authority.

    The Anchorage Review is a valuable collaborative exercise in identifying the locations that serve us well, and those that can be altered, added or eliminated altogether. Through consultation with knowledgeable stakeholders, we believe making changes to our assigned anchorages will improve the safety and efficiency of daily port operations.

    The total number of available anchorages has increased from 19 to 30. Inner harbour anchorages are now assigned by numbers instead of letters. All six inner harbour anchorages have been shifted north toward Tuck Inlet and resized to accommodate grain, log and other smaller ships. The old Anchorage A has been eliminated in anticipation of the future expansion of Fairview Terminal and to provide more sea room for the turning basin of container ships. Also eliminated in the trial are three outer harbour anchorages in Marcus Passage which posed a potential risk of fouling underwater cables in the event of anchor dragging during strong weather and tides.

    Upon successful completion of this trial, the Prince Rupert Port Authoritys Practices and Procedures will be updated with the new anchorage positions and made available for public comment in accordance with the Marine Act.

    Re:port is a collaborative promotional venture by the Prince Rupert Port Authority and The Northern View.

    earthquake notice is neededEditor: The Jan. 9 Prince Rupert

    Northern View contained references to the most recent earthquake and northcoast tsunami warning.

    Having slept through it all, I object to the lack of public communication. The deafening silence was a failure on the part of our public leaders: the situation so easily fixable.

    Citizens were left without a choice, as to whether or not we would implement our own family or neighbourhood plan that night. Had an emergency staffer laid on their vehicle horn as they rushed downtown we would have been grateful. There are other ways to wake sleeping Prince Rupert without the sirens we opted out of maintaining. Vehicle horns, air horns, marine flares, church bells,ship horns. Is there a siren at our coast guard base which might be utilized? Hearing suspicious noises, we might have called someone, or

    checked the internet, radio or television, then taken action of our own choosing, our own planning.

    Information dissipates panic. Our CityWest telephone book (pages 37 and 38) contain instructions. Nowhere does it say that blissful ignorance is an effective response to a public emergency. First responders properly evacuated low lying areas. Exactly how many feet above sea level is that? Our Provincial Emergency Programme (PEP) says 20 metres or 60 feet. Yet Craig, Alaska evacuates to 125 feet and some places in Japan had water to 100 feet, including

    flooding in sheltered harbours. The Civic Centre and Prince Rupert Middle School are low-lying too given they are both beside a creek bed.

    Frequently people say we will be protected from a tsunami or surge by all of our outlying islands. But, unless we have a deal with Nature itself that no earthquake will

    cause a landslide above or below waters nearby, then we still have concerns. Apparently on April 27, 1975 a slide on the northeast slope of Kitimat Arm caused an eight-metre wave damaging a Northland Navigation dock.

    Just as our firefighters did not rely on the PEP for a warning before taking action, so too are many citizens ready without needing a knock on the door. If there is a crisis, we must know.

    Social media doesnt cut it either. Lets make community communication happen.

    Sincerely, K. Palm

    The deafening silence was a failure on the part of our public leaders. -K. PalmPipeline debate needs contextEditor:In response to the numerous

    letters protesting the oil and gas activity in B.C. and the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline, please consider the following:

    Total B.C. government revenue collected from oil and gas royalties, sales of gas rights, fees and rentals is more than $2.1 billion per year.

    Oil and gas industry investment is about $6 billion per year in B.C., with a healthy percentage of this as labour which end up as income for many B.C. families.

    The continued employment of many B.C. residents and other Canadians will be maintained

    by the product transported in the pipelines.

    There is currently more than 55,000 kilometres of pipelines in B.C. In 2010 the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission investigated a total of 41 pipeline incidents involving leaks, spills or ruptures, of which six were water.

    Agreed, no hydrocarbon release is acceptable. However, todays engineering standards, material specifications and installation techniques within Canada are world-leading and therefore reduce the risk of failure significantly.

    Further, I feel the protests are being driven by people with no

    real familiarity or experience within the industry and only have four words in their vocabulary, B.C. not for sale.

    In closing, B.C. residents should support projects of this nature as western Canada needs to be able to market our products to the world nations in order to sustain the quality of life in which we all have become accustom and enjoy. Our children and grandchildren deserve the opportunity to obtain sustainable employment in order to meet the ever-raising costs of living and prosper as we have.

    Editor: I am writing in response to a

    recent article in The Northern Connector.

    I see that the RCMPs reason for shooting the wolves was that it was based on peoples [fears] instead of actually getting evidence that there really is cause for concern of wolves being near any children or near peoples pets. I dont think that they have the authority or even the right to kill those wolves. I am enraged that those poor wolves got killed for nothing.

    People are going out there and crying wolf and for what? Do the RCMP have a right to go and kill them? I thought there was someone else that is supposed to come around and gather the wolves and shoot them with those guns that have tranquilizers? Not kill them.

    On another note I dont think that wolves are harmful. Last year my son and I saw one... and all he did was clap his hand loud and the wolf ran down the hill really fast and onto a trail that goes down to the pond, near Morsby Park.

    I think people shouldnt be feeding the wolves or even crying wolf when they see one. Its common sense and education.

    If you cause harm to them, yes they will attack to protect themselves. I dont see any reason for wolves to be shot. I think something needs to be done about this. An animal is a animal.

    Those wolves are only doing what they can do to survive. And having those deer all over our city coming into City limits is the reason why the wolves are coming into city limits.

    Editor:I recently read two articles in

    your paper about a proposal to remove trout and char retention opportunities throughout the entire Skeena region.

    Such a proposal and the manner in which it was brought forward should be of concern to all residents, not just in the Skeena region. It aims to ban every man, woman or child from being able to catch and keep a trout or char on all Skeena streams.

    The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations propose allowing catch and release only, effectively excluding those who traditionally fish for food as well as the ability of father and son to take home the odd trout or char.

    What you may not know is

    that some commercial angling guides and elite-minded anglers continuously lobby the ministry to strip common residents of their heritage fishing rights based on false conservation concerns.

    They are quick to accolade the ministry for doing the right thing all under the flag of conservation as long as it does not hinder them.

    Yet meanwhile back on the water these same individuals are sinking their barbless hooks deep and unabated into the very same fish they claim need protection.

    Catch and release is by no means an effective conservation answer, and to say that fish are not harmed in a catch and release only fishery is clearly false and misleading. A large number of fish that get hooked and played succumb to their injuries.

    Annually thousands of fish are mortally wounded being released belly up as a result of catch and release, regardless of angling method used. What a shameful waste!

    Unfortunately, to the elitists and guide companies who continuously lobby government to exclude resident rights, its all about numbers not conservation.

    Trout and char within the Skeena region are defined by the ministry as being within a routine management zone. By definition this means that these stocks are not of conservation concern as some wrongfully tout. As such, removing conservative size and retention limits already in place only serves to segregate and discriminate against the traditional resident angler.

    Sensibly and ethically, if scientific

    research data is sufficient to support such a heavy handed direction to address a conservation concern, then catch and release needs to be banned as well. If a fishery is deemed unable to provide a retention opportunity as a result of a conservation concern, then it too cant support mortalities resulting from catch and release. For the ministry to ban any retention opportunity under the guise of conservation or precautionary approach, and not catch and release mortalities should be considered as a prejudice and hypocritical action.

    The mandate of fisheries is to manage fish stocks based on sound scientific knowledge.

    A complete trout and char retention ban arrived at from biased anecdotal evidence and self serving hearsay is clearly a failure of this

    mandate. Our fisheries should be managed to provide sustainable access to this public resource for generations to enjoy.

    The new direction of the fisheries branch is to base decisions on biased anecdotal claims to serve non-resident and minority angling interests, not conservation. As a public taxpayer of a generations old coastal angling family, Ive today lost confidence in how the ministrys regional office manages our fisheries and public angling opportunities.

    I cant help but feel segregated and discriminated against by the very ministry entrusted to represent the best interest of public and their opportunities revolving around this common property resource.

    Mike Langegger, Kitimat, B.C.

    ministrys fish ban proposal is just an elitist ploy

    A brief ceremony was held at the Prince Rupert Ferry Terminal Jan. 29 to mark the 50th anniversary of Alaska Marine Highway Systems service to its only Canadian port of call.

    Dignitaries and community leaders attended the early morning event to acknowledge the impact the ferry service has made on cross-border relations and both the tourism and trade industries.

    It is the only Canadian port, which makes us an international ferry system, said Murray Sheppard, Prince Rupert Terminals manager for the AMHS.

    Its good for the Alaskans because it gives them an outlet to the lower 48 [states]. But also for Prince Rupert, its really good for tourismgood for all of British Columbia.

    In 2011, 18,270 passengers and 7,031 vehicles passed through the

    Prince Rupert Terminal.Prince Rupert mayor Jack

    Mussallem used the event to underscore the Citys excellent relationship with Ketchikan, AK, and the burgeoning business opportunities that exist now with the Citys port facilities. A Ketchikan delegation will be visiting sometime this year for what theyre calling the 2013 Prince Rupert Trade Mission.

    We have a strong relationship with them, Mussallem said.

    We visit each other back and forth and even go up there for their Fourth of July celebrations. Were in their parade weve always been interested in trade and commerce, and some of the issues they face are very similar to us.

    The 1963 inclusion of Prince Rupert in the ferrys toure was seen as a testament to the citys link and similarities to its north-coast American neighbours.

    In the spirit of what Mussallem called a friendship thats

    developed over the years, Captain Nick Collars of the MV Taku, which was in port during the ceremony, was presented with a box of Nanaimo bars after the official exchange of handshakes and plaque presentations. When docking in Prince Rupert the American captain, who has worked the route from Ketchikan to Prince Rupert since 1998, is known to race into Cow Bay for coffee and a square of the rich, Canadian west-coast treat.

    That was really nice of them, he said with a laugh.

    This really is the best job Ive ever had.

    The Alaskan state-owned ferry service is an extension of the public highway infrastructure. It operates 11 vessels in the North Coast waters, providing a vital link between 33 communities for trade, transport and essential services. It covers 3,500 miles from Bellingham, WA, to Dutch Harbour in the Aleutian Islands.

    A council of six universities are warning that by 2016 the province wont be able to supply enough workers to fill in huge growth in demand.

    The Research Universities Council of BC (RUCBC) say that based on the provincial governments own numbers and other statistics, by 2020 18,800 jobs will go unfilled in B.C., because of the lack of necessary education and training.

    The president of the University of Northern B.C., a member of the university council, said in the north were already entering into skills

    shortages.For many of us, for example

    in Kitimat and other very active fronts, this has already arrived, said President George Iwama.

    He said a problem facing college and university campuses everywhere is the grade 12 graduation rate is declining. Additionally, many people are choosing to move to urban areas rather than staying rural.

    When you combine the two [factors] for Northern B.C., our enrolments are declining, he said.

    By 2020, out of the 18,8000 jobs needed, 8,400 will be those requiring a university degree, 8,100 a college credential and 2,300 need trades training. The year 2016 will

    be what Iwama calls the tipping point where jobs start to outnumber available workers.

    Iwama said the skills deficit will be exacerbated in the north because of numbers in the BC Labour Market Outlook which anticipates two of the top three regions with the fastest rate of employment growth will be in the north.

    The university council, in

    response to the skills shortage, put together an Opportunity Agenda for B.C., which boils down to three goals.

    First is to have a space for every qualified student, and add 11,000 student spaces in universities, colleges and trades training over the next four years.

    Second, have a guarantee for students in need, by investing in more grants and scholarships, and making improvements to student loans.

    Finally, they want a commitment to innovation and jobs by establishing an Innovate BC initiative. That would bring together government, business and post-secondary institutions together

    to drive economic growth, they say.Iwama said the Opportunities

    Agenda is in a way related to a recently completed Regional Training Plan, which was assembled by the Northwest Workforce Table.

    That document set out a number of recommendations to get people trained for upcoming opportunities and pushed for more training opportunities.

    That underscores a very important aspect of what the research universities are trying to say; that companies are telling us yes, we need equipment operators, we need the welders, we need the plumbers, but we also need people with university training., said Iwama.

  • Theres no mistaking the importance of Kitimat, B.C., to the Gateway project. Its where the pipeline ends, and its where marine operations begin.

    Id like to set the record straight on why we chose Kitimat, at the head of the Douglas Channel, as the site for Gateways marine terminal. The answer took thousands of hours of research, planning, engineering, environmental science, oceanography consultation, weather monitoring, and simulation. But the simple reason is . . . safety, all the way.

    The Douglas Channel is one of the widest and deepest inland waterways on North Americas west coast. Government research had already determined Kitimat to be among the safest ports in B.C., and about 1,500 tankers carrying petrochemicals have docked safely at Kitimat over the past quarter-century.

    Strategically speaking, Kitimat provides the lowest environmental risk for all aspects of Gateway operations. It offers a safer endpoint for the pipeline route, from a geotechnical perspective. The marine terminal at Kitimat also provides safe approaches for tanker traffi c with a suitable turning basin in Kitimat Arm, and natural deep-water berths that are sheltered from open-water wave conditions.

    At its very narrowest, the Douglas Channel is 1.4 kilometres wide three times wider than Transport Canadas recommended width for two-way tanker traffi c. Water depths in the marine channels are up to several hundred metres.

    As an added measure, full simulations of vessel traffi c in the Douglas Channel were carried out at a world-leading facility in Denmark. It tested the largest proposed vessels in environmental conditions that tankers would experience in the marine channels. The result was a thumbs-up on the shipping route, endorsed by both government departments and the British Columbia Coast Pilots.

    Why Kitimat? Why the Douglas Channel? Its the safe option for Gateway.

    Trades employment program seeking unemployed

    By Quinn Bender The Northern View

    The British Columbia Construction Association celebrated the one-year anniversary of a successful employment program in Prince Rupert last week, but not without urging more unemployed to seek their assistance.

    The Skilled Trades Employment Program (STEP) helps applicants explore their trades options then connects them with employment opportunities. Funding for Industry Training Authority (ITA) recognized trades is also available.

    Trish Lazar, a trades employment specialist with the BCCA encourages women and First Nations to apply for the program, as there is a little more funding available due to demand.

    In a small community like Prince Rupert, youve got a lot of women settling to be a cashier, because they dont realize they can be out in the trades. They can go in and be welders, and pipe fitters and millwrights. We

    get excellent feedback about our women in trades programs and we really go out of our way to promote them.

    Previously the STEP program was offered out of Terrace, but with the expected growth in Prince Rupert, namely the port expansion, the BCCA opened an office for the STEP program in the city last year. It was originally launched in 2006 to assist foreign-trained skilled workers obtain employment where there was a lack of available workers. Since then, the STEP network has grown to include employment programs through 90 ITA recognized trades, which are listed at

    STEP held a small open house at their 3rd Ave West location to mark the anniversary.

    Because the program is financed through the Federal Government, the program is open only to those who are not eligible for Employment Insurance, and have not collected it in the last three years.

    young entrepreneur strikes the right cord By Martina Perry

    The Northern View

    Prince Ruperts Lucas Statham, a grade 12 student at Charles Hays Secondary School (CHSS), has been gaining recognition in the business community for his creation of a para cord bracelet.

    Statham says a friend inspired him to create a bracelet woven out of para cord. The special cord is used by the military to string parachutes, and can hold up to 550 pounds before breaking. Each para cord bracelet is made of 10 feet of continuous rope that can be unwoven if needed. All para cord bracelets are hand woven and made in the customers choice of colour.

    Statham says the bracelet is perfect for anyone who participates in backwood activities.

    If youre out in the woods it can be used in any situation where you need rope, Statham explained.

    Statham introduced his company, Omnicord Products, in October while he was enrolled in the Aboriginal Youth Entrepreneurship Program at CHSS. The course is part of Paul Martins Aboriginal Education Initiative that teaches students how to create a business, from the business concept, to planning it, down to the production and marketing of company products.

    According to Statham, the most important thing the Aboriginal Entrepreneurship Program taught him is if his company grows the products quality should always stay

    at the same standard so customers continue to come back.

    Stathams efforts were recognized by his entrepreneur class teacher, who suggested him for the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce Rising Star Program that started in the fall. The Rising Stars program is a mentorship project that pairs students from Northwest Community College with members of the local business community, with Statham being the first high school student to take part in the program.

    It was a great feeling to have my teacher Ms. Murray recognize that I had the initiative and would be able to participate with college students, he said.

    Statham was partnered up with Michael Gurney from the Prince Rupert Port Authority, who also enjoys spending time in the outdoors and was naturally intrigued by the bracelet.

    Theres other places around the world you can buy bracelets made of para cord, but Luc identified a local need for such a product The way hes marketing it is unique. Its not just a good looking bracelet, its a bracelet that could save your life, he said.

    Entrepreneurship and initiative are two of the defining characteristics of the business community here in Prince Rupert. Its exciting to see young people like Luc step up to the plate, seize the opportunity, then be recognized for it, Gurney said.

    Gurney says hes also pleased hes gotten to know someone with such outstanding character.

    I think strength of character undergirds successful business He is destined for a long and successful career in entrepreneurship, he said.

    Although Stathams invention had already gained interest in Prince Rupert through word of mouth, Statham was able to launch his own website for Omnicord Products,, with the help of his mentor. People can order the bracelet by contacting Statham through the e-mail

    address listed on the site.While being excited for all the opportunities he has

    been able to take advantage of, Statham also believes his fellow Youth Entrepreneurship classmates deserve recognition.

    Theres going to be quite a few new small businesses in Prince Rupert, which will be exciting to see, he said.

    Celebrate BCs first Family Day Monday Feb 11

    Eat togethern Family Day is the ideal time to bring your

    family back to the table.

    Given the increasingly busy schedule of every

    member of the family, eating together has been a

    casualty of our hectic days. Whether youre together

    in your home, on a mini-vacation or enjoying a local

    restaurant, there are numerous benefits to eating


    Sharing a table means sharing your day, sharing

    your undivided attention and sharing conversation. It

    is a chance to give extra attention to your children and

    teens. Family meals foster warmth, security and love, as

    well as a sense of belonging.

    Using family meals as a way to sample new menus

    can be both fun and a great learning experience. By

    giving family members input and the opportunity to

    choose the menu, it becomes an ideal way to expand

    their horizons on a wider range of foods and cultures. It

    also can lead to healthier choices as well as developing

    an open mind for experiencing new things.

    A way to get more out of a family meal is to engage

    the family in menu selection, shopping and preparation.

    You can begin this at a very young age giving children

    age-appropriate tasks like stirring ingredients, washing

    vegetables, tearing lettuce and setting the table. As your

    children grow they can take on more key responsibilities

    and the pride that comes with preparing a special family

    meal. This teaches your children cooking skills, nutrition

    and appreciation for the effort of meal preparation. It

    can also provide a great source of accomplishment and

    sense of self-sufficiency.

    n There is no better province to explore than British Columbia and no better family bonding experience than

    sharing the thrill of a new discovery or experience. Day

    trips can create remarkable family memories. They offer

    a wonderful way to spend time together and learn more

    about where you live.

    The variety of experiences available to families is

    different in each region of this spectacular province -

    you might decide to explore close to home or venture

    to one of the other regions in B.C. over the Family Day


    Whether going for a drive, taking a walk, going for

    a hike or hopping a flight, there are many ways to invest

    in a day of discovery. Travel is just one aspect. To

    maximize the experience families should involve

    everyone in the planning.

    By planning ahead you and your

    whole family can experience a

    worthwhile outing and make

    every aspect fun. Create a

    list of activities or venues

    and assign a rough budget

    for each. Allow family

    members to weigh in

    on their preferences and

    discuss what they would

    like to see, do or learn at


    You might decide to stay in a hotel and be a tourist

    in your own hometown. Kids or youth can map out the

    sites and activities, creating a family agenda including

    selecting the points of interest, lunch and shopping as

    well as enjoying the amenities your hotel might offer.

    Its the perfect way to free up everyone from everyday

    tasks and roles.

    Be sure to capture your family time by taking

    photos, saving literature or purchasing a memento.

    This can lead to great family discussions about what

    each individual enjoyed or learned and

    starts you planning for future family

  • Share togethern Bringing together your extended family can

    create a highly memorable and valuable life event.

    They say it takes a village to raise a child

    and many would agree especially in todays world

    of working parents and latch-key kids. The support,

    experience and interest of your extended family can have a

    significant impact on your immediate family. Regardless

    of your definition of extended family, bringing

    together those with whom you share history with can

    have lasting benefits not just for you and your children

    but for those you invite to share your day.

    It is common in todays world to have older children in

    nuclear families reach their teens before meeting extended

    family members. Geographical isolation is common for middle-

    class families who move based on occupational opportunities

    while family branches retain their independence.

    Family Day is the ideal occasion to hold family reunions to re-establish and integrate a

    stronger family connection. This allows your children to connect with extended family members

    and to share a better sense of their heritage and belonging.

    Dont forget to include senior members of your family. Family reunions and relationships

    inspire seniors to stay active and pursue their well-being. Studies have found seniors feel revitalized

    when they spend time with families. Your children will benefit from hearing their oral history and

    thats an inspiring experience that wont always be available to them.

    Another way to celebrate Family Day is to gather your extended family and friends around

    something you care about. It might be a shore clean-up, a family walk or a garage sale. You might

    volunteer at a foodbank. Food is often central to gatherings and with everyone contributing to a

    family meal afterwards, it becomes a great way to share B.C.s first Family Day.

    Create togethern One of my favourite memories was

    creating an enormous piata in preparation

    for a multi-family holiday. We blew up a huge

    bouncy ball and covered it with papier mache.

    Our children and those of our friends were

    young so after my young sons painted the ball

    white, I drew a score of cartoon characters,

    shapes and funny animals all around it.

    Filled with age-appropriate,

    small toys, puzzles and treats,

    the big white ball became a

    major activity for everyone in

    our three-family group. Every

    age took turns colouring in

    the shapes through-out the

    day, knowing when it was

    completed the ball would be

    strung up. The anticipation and

    excitement was heightened

    because the reward came with activity and

    was not immediate.

    Creating something as a family can mark

    an important time in your family history. It

    captures the age and ability of your children,

    your interests and a point in time.

    By working together on a project your

    family can develop new skills, collaborate on

    something truly memorable and enjoy what

    each family member brings to the endeavor.

    Think about all the things a family could

    create together a family album complete

    with stories, mementos and funny or poignant

    memories. Your family might be old enough

    to handle something more ambitious like

    preparing a garden, building a dog house or

    designing and painting a family recreation

    area in your home.

    Technology puts an amazing array of tools

    in the hands of todays families.

    You can plan, write, film and

    edit a movie with your everyday

    computer and smartphone

    technology and software. Even

    more fun is sharing your family

    creation with friends around the


    You might even suggest a

    film festival by inviting families

    to create their own film and have

    a popcorn premiere to show them all.

    Searching online will uncover an

    astounding number of crafts and projects you

    could tackle as a family. It can be as simple as

    building and flying a kite. Or you may look

    for something you can recycle or re-purpose

    into a creative new item whether a work

    of art or function. Its bound to make your

    family members proud environment stewards

    as well as treasuring your time and project as

    a family.

    n There is nothing like the fun and innocence of childhood. Whether its a game

    of kick-the-can with the neighbourhood

    children or building a tree fort

    in the backyard, some of our

    best memories are playful.

    Board games are a great

    indoor activity, and Family

    Day is a great time to dig out

    some of your old favourites

    like Monopoly and Clue, and

    maybe try out a few new ones that are geared

    towards family fun. Your local toy store will

    h a v e a wide range of options,

    along with other family-

    friendly entertainment

    such as

    puzzles and books. Set up a card table, get

    your favourite puzzle out and spend hours

    putting together the pieces. Finishing a

    complicated puzzle will also

    give your kids a sense of


    If youre looking for

    something a bit more high-

    tech, your game console or

    computer is a good place to

    start. Video games have come

    a long way from the classic Super Mario

    and Donkey Kong, and you may discover

    that your kids have a much larger technical

    knowledge than you do. They might beat

    you at Wii Sports but it will make for a great


    Getting outside for a game of tag or

    basketball will check off two things on your

    list: play and exercise. Taking a trip to a local

    playground or field will give you hours of

    entertainment for a low cost.

    This year, Family Day is a time to make

    memories, spend time together and

    maybe learn a thing or two. Whatever the

    weather is like outside, you have plenty

    of options for having fun at all ages.

    Family Day 2013

    Play togethern If you ask any adult about some of their favourite memories of childhood, you

    will invariably hear something related to

    food. Whether its baking with Grandma

    or grilling hamburgers for a cookout with

    Dad, cooking is always an important part of

    growing up.

    Family Day is a great time to dig out

    those family cookbooks and try a

    recipe handed down by the older

    generation. Your moms famous

    meatloaf or your uncles recipe

    for spinach dip are great

    things to try with family members of all ages.

    Maybe youre looking to make something

    youve never made before, or perhaps you

    want to try out a new cuisine. Hitting the web

    will give you ideas for new recipes, whether

    its trying to duplicate your favourite takeout

    pizza or make an authentic spicy Indian dish.

    Let each member of the family choose a

    recipe that they want to try, whether its for

    breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack. That way

    everyone gets involved and has their say in

    what the family eats. Maybe youll find a

    new favourite food or discover that your child

    is aiming to become the next Mario Batali or

    Julia Child.

    Your local grocery store is sure to have

    a wide selection of ingredients that you may

    never have tasted before. Wandering the

    aisles may even spark your imagination.

    Learning about what goes into a dish

    will set your family on the road to healthy

    eating. Taking a few minutes to read the

    labels on a food item will demonstrate

    how to make healthy choices and help

    your children in the future. Finding

    healthy alternatives to not-so-

    healthy foods can be a fun

    experiment, and may end

    up being tastier than the

    original food.

    Province resumes questions at JrP hearings in Prince rupert

    Staff Writer The Northern View

    The BC government began its part in the cross-examination of Enbridge/Northern Gateway representatives at the Joint Review Panel (JRP) hearings in Prince Rupert Monday, concentrating on key issues around marine spills.

    Questions from the Provinces legal counsel will focus on the Northern Gateway Projects (NGP) maritime spill prevention and response capabilities and follow up on the last round of questioning regarding land-based spill response asked in Prince George last October.

    The BC government wants NGP representatives to explain how they will achieve one of the Provinces five minimum requirements for heavy oil pipelines set out in July 2012 world-leading marine oil spill prevention, response and recovery systems for B.C.s coastline and ocean to manage

    and mitigate the risks and costs of heavy oil pipelines and shipments.

    Our government is committed to defending British Columbians interests, which is why I will be attending initial testimony in Prince Rupert, said minister of environment Terry Lake. While marine spill response is primarily a federal issue, it is important that our government ensure British Columbians are protected from financial and environmental risk. B.C. will continue to work with the federal government on a

    world-leading marine-based spill response model and are encouraged by their plans to introduce legislation around the polluter-pay model.

    Among the list of topics the Province is looking to get more details on are spill response standards and availability of response resources as well as how the challenges of northern B.C.s geography and climate could impact a spill response. The company also will be questioned on the extent of its responsibility, accountability and relationships with the

    marine carriers once tankers leave the Prince Rupert terminal.

    In late February, and again in March, the Province will return to Prince Rupert to ask questions of two additional NGP witness panels - one dealing with issues related to the environmental risk assessment for pipeline spills as submitted by NGP and the other dealing with shipping and navigation. Once questioning in Prince Rupert is complete, the Joint Review Panel will release a schedule for intervenors to deliver final arguments regarding the project.

    While the primary regulatory responsibility for marine spills is federal, B.C. does have a significant role to play and would become the lead agency if and when the oil comes ashore. The B.C. government said its committed to working with the federal government to ensure the Province has a world-class spill response model for marine transport.

    eagle eye archers benefit from port donationBy Martina Perry

    The Northern View

    The Prince Rupert Port Authority took aim at the Prince Rupert Eagle Eye Archery Club as the final beneficiary of the 2012 Community Investment Fund.

    Having a dedicated club like Eagle Eye Archers with the equipment, expertise and funds to operate year-round is a privilege that residents of all ages can enjoy, Don Krusel, president and CEO of the Prince Rupert Port Authority, said about last weeks announcement.

    The port donated $9,895 to the Eagle Eye Archery Club to purchase new equipment and along with $9,445 the club raised through fundraising initiatives, Eagle Eye was able to purchase 18 Genesis Bows, 120 Genesis-rated arrows, a new bow press, training from a BC Archery Association instructor for 14 members and a 28-foot covered cargo trailer.

    Youth as young as five years old and seniors well into their golden years now have the pleasure of shooting the same caliber bow and arrows. We are also now able to accommodate the maximum number of 16 archers on the shooting line at the same

    time in our facility and have the capacity to tow all our equipment to any archery function in the Pacific Northwest, Fred Hutchings, president of Eagle Eye, said.

    Currently the club has a membership of 53 families and more than 90 archers, with Hutchings saying the ports donation will allow the club to meet demands of its growing membership and will increase the quality and quantity of the clubs equipment and instructional capacity.

    Its a growing, year-round sport that fits well in Prince Rupert. We love that its a grassroots, growing sport that provides a new option to the community This club has a super active membership and volunteers that want to make a difference. To be able to support local citizens in doing that is exactly where the funds should be invested in, Ken Veldman, director of public affairs for the port, said.

    Located on Prince Rupert Blvd., the Eagle Eye Archery Club is a non-profit organization that is open for the public to use, only requiring a modest drop-in fee. The club is open to adults on Monday and Tuesday nights from 7-9 p.m., and for families on Thursday night from 7 to 9 p.m.

    and Sunday afternoons from 1 to 3 p.m. People dont have to be skilled and they

    dont need equipment, Hutchings said.The ports Community Investment

    Twelve teams from Prince Rupert and one team from Terrace competed in the annual Mixed Bonspiel held at the Prince Rupert Curling Club from Feb. 1 to Feb. 3.

    Rona-Tyee Building Supplies sponsored the event that saw four Prince Rupert teams earn the top spots in the A, B, C and D events.

    Winning the A event was skip Paul Eisenhauer, far right in photo, and his team consisting of Michelle Bartel, Danny Dawson and Kathy Dann. The team beat the Doug Mullin rink 9-1.

    The top team in the B event was lead by skip Jordan Johnson, far right in photo, who lead his team 7-3 against the Travis Bernhardt rink. Johnson celebrated the win with Sharon Rothwell, Tim Todd and Natasha Lebedick.

    In the C event, skip Al Scott, left in photo, and teammates Linda Scott and Pat Scott beat out the Linda Miller rink team 5-3. Missing from picture is Jamie Scott.

    Coming out on top in the D event was skip Jun Yamamoto, left in photo, and his teammates Shawna Holkestad, Kathy Yamamoto and Jeremy Yamamoto. The team tied with the Al Green rink, having to drawn to the button to determine the winner, with Jun Yamamoto throwing the rock closer.

    The next event the Curling Club will host is the Ladies Bonspiel on Feb. 22 to Feb. 24.

    Love grows babies. Love helps babies feel safe and

    explore their world.By Martina Perry The Northern ViewYoung, gifted Rupertities will take

    the Lester Centre stage this weekend competing in the second annual Prince Ruperts Got Talent show.

    People will be amazed at what these young contestants can do, Crystal Lorette, general manager of the Lester Centre of the Arts, said.

    Auditions for the event were held earlier this month, with 20 contestants ages nine to 21 being selected.

    We have a very diverse range of talent. The contestants sang, danced, strummed, drummed and flexed their way past the panel of judges during the auditions to move to the final stage of the competition, Lorette said.

    Selected acts include soloists, duos and groups.

    Some of them are already comfortable on stage and a few have never been on stage before. Its a confidence booster for the youth contestants, she said.

    Four judges from the north west with ranging artistic backgrounds will select the winner of the competition who will

    earn a $1,000 cash prize to help further them in their field of talent.

    The show is one of the Lester Centres community outreach projects, and will help raise funds to maintain and operate

    the centre. Prince Ruperts Got Talent will take

    place on Saturday, Feb. 9 at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Lester Centre or Cooks Jewellers.

    By Shaun Thomas The Northern View

    When you think of musical instruments that compliment each other, your first thought may not be a violin and a clarinet.

    But this Sunday night at Cowpuccinos Emilyn Stam and John David Williams will show just how well they go together. The duo met in Toronto after Stam moved to the city from Smithers, where she was a member of the Valley Fiddlers, and Stam said they clicked right away.

    It started off with us sitting down and coming up with stuff on the spot and really improvising, she said.

    Its sort of like a conversation, but it also makes us look for different ways to play our instruments because both violin and clarinet are melody instruments.

    Aside from playing together, the duo have diverse musical backgrounds.

    Emilyn is well versed in western folk music, but has also spent time recently in Holland and France performing at dances and festivals. She also plays accordian and piano. In addition to eastern European influences, John plays modern jazz and both have been trained in classical music.

    With such extensive backgrounds, its not surprising that the two vary their music as they play.

    We cover a wide range of music. Some of it is sing-alongs that people will know, some are quite interesting pieces and some are songs people will have never heard before, said

    Stam. This show will be completely

    different from any other show we play because we like to get caught up in the magic of the moment.

    The two are on a short northern B.C. tour with stops in Prince George, Smithers and Prince Rupert.

    John has never been to Prince Rupert and I wanted to show him how beautiful it was between Prince George and Prince Rupert, said Stam.

    The last time I was there was for a hockey tournament when I was a kid, she added with a chuckle.

    The show gets underway at 7 p.m. on Feb. 10.

    Rosemary.We had the opportunity to pass around a DVD

    that was donated to the centre by a member lately. That got me thinkingperhaps we could have a DVD Borrowing Library at the centre like we have with our books. If you are thinking of getting rid of some DVDs that our members may

    enjoy please feel free to drop them at the centre. Thank you.

    Gary Coons, our MLA, dropped off some fluorescent bands that are reusable to put on over your jacket so drivers will see you at night or early morning when walking. They are nifty and they are free

    P.S. Thanks for taking the recycling to the depot for us John and Bob.

    Five years have passed since that sad day.Gone are the days we use to share,Gone is the face we loved so dear.Silent is the voice we loved to hear

    But in our hearts you are always near.

    Today a page in the book of memory silently turns.

    Loving memories we will never forget.Years fly by like autumn leaves,

    But the heartache and tears still remain.For what it meant to lose you

    No one will ever know.

    The gates of memory will never close,We miss you more than anyone knows,

    With tender love and deep regret,We who love you will NEVER FORGET.

    So deeply missed and forever lovedMum, Ray, Tommy, Robin, Raymond

    Friday FEBRUARY 8, 12pm to 7pmSaturday FEBRUARY 9, 10am to 6pmSunday FEBRUARY 10, 10am to 5pm

    By Martina Perry The Northern View

    Gord Howie, Prince Ruperts long-time city manager, was presented with a Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal at the final city council meeting he attended in the community on Jan. 28.

    The commemorative medal was created to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth IIs accession to the Throne. 60,000 Canadians were recognized with the medal in 2012, which serves to honour achievements and contributions made by Canadians.

    Howie received the medal for his contributions to municipal government during his career, which has lasted nearly forty years, part of which he served in Prince Rupert. Howie served as CAO in Prince Rupert from 1980 to 1987 and returned to fill the role again in 2005 until Jan. 31, 2013.

    Howie moved down south to be closer to family, and started his role as Chief Administrative Officer in Sooke on Feb. 1.

    The process of selecting a new city manager will take a considerable amount of time, so Dan Rodin has been appointed as acting city manager, with Robert Grodecki being selected as back up, followed by Bill Horne.

    I give my sincere thanks to Mr. Howie, not only on behalf of Prince Rupert city council, but all the citys employees and residents of Prince Rupert, Jack Mussallem, mayor of Prince Rupert, said at the meeting.

    u cITy manager Family arrested for drug dealing

    The Masset RCMP have put a halt to an alleged local drug trafficking ring operated by a family of four in Masset.

    During the late evening of Jan. 23rd, 2013, Masset RCMP executed a search warrant on a residence in Old Masset which was believed to be associated to drug trafficking. Five persons, who were located at the residence, were

    arrested and taken into custody, one of which was released later that night.

    The subsequent search resulted in the seizure of prepackaged cocaine powder, and crack cocaine, over $6,500 in cash, drug trafficking paraphernalia and an unsecure firearm. The drugs seized have an estimated street value of over $4,200.

    Charged with Possession of

    a Controlled substance for the purpose of Trafficking are 49 year old Robert Davis (Sr), 44 year old Roxanne Davis, 23 year old Adam Davis and 18 year old Robert Davis (Jr).

    All four were remanded in custody until Jan. 25.
