    tsunami warning issued after quakeBy Martina Perry

    The Northern View

    A brief tsunami warning for Prince Rupert and much of British Columbias coast was put in place after a magnitude 7.5 earthquake shook southeastern Alaska early Saturday morning.

    Local emergency service and Prince Rupert Port Authority representatives said information was more readily available this time around, following the magnitude 7.7 earthquake that hit in October.

    The earthquake occurred at 12:50 a.m. about 300 kilometres west-northwest of Prince Rupert, with a tsunami warning quickly following. No large waves were generated by the earthquake, with the Alaska Tsunami Warning Centre saying the waves didnt

    pose a threat. Following the tsunami warning, the Prince Rupert Fire Rescue crew and the Prince Rupert RCMP acted quickly, evacuating homes on Water Street and Beach Place and blocking off access to low laying areas around the community.

    We dont rely on the Provincial Emergency Plan to give us our information. Once the warning takes effect We put our emergency plan into operation. We dont sit around and wait for direction like a lot of other communities, Fire Chief Dave McKenzie said.

    The Fire Rescue crew and RCMP also opened an Emergency Operations Centre at City Hall for the warning, which was lifted within a few hours.

    McKenzie said evacuations were easier this time around because there wasnt as much activity or

    traffic in low-lying areas. It went smooth and turned out

    to be a non-event. Its a reminder that people need to be prepared and be able to be self-sufficient for up to 72 hours, McKenzie said.

    The Prince Rupert Port Authority also set up an Emergency Command Centre at their Atlin Terminal office within half an hour of the warning. Personnel at Ridley Terminals were evacuated, and Fairview Terminal employees were moved to a place of refuge until the warning was lifted.

    Michael Gurney, manager of corporate communications for the port, said information was much easier to come by this time around.

    We learned a lot from the last tsunami event and as a result our response on Saturday night was very smooth running, Gurney said.

    home values

    increaseBy Shaun Thomas

    The Northern View

    Homeowners in Prince Rupert and Port Edward can expect a slight increase in the assessed value of their property.

    According to BC Assessment, most homeowners will see a modest increase of three to seven per cent in 2013 compared to 2012. Commercial and industrial property owners will face anywhere from a five per cent decline in assessed value to a five per cent increase, while business owners in Port Edward will have decreases of five per cent to 10 per cent.

    The overall assessment roll for Prince Rupert will be increasing from $1.307 billion last year to $1.316 billion this year, while the assessment roll for Port Edward will jump from $70.6 million to $71.4 million.

    Property owners who feels the assessed value doesnt reflect the true value of their property can call BC Assessment at 1-866-825-8322. If still unsatisfied, an appeal can be filed by Jan. 31 for an independent review.

    hospital welcomes bone mass density scannerBy Shaun Thomas

    The Northern View

    Patients on the North Coast will no longer have to travel to Kitimat for an important medical treatment thanks to years of fundraising by the North Coast Health Improvement Society,

    The volunteer group successfully raised $125,000 to purchase a bone mass density scanner for the Prince Rupert Regional Hospital, which is now fully operational on the second floor. The equipment was delivered in November and, following the training of two technicians on the use of the machine, scans were offered in late December.

    A bone mass density scanner provides medical professionals with an indication of the likelihood of significant fracture due to bone loss by measuring bone mineral density and helps determine whether therapy or continued surveillance is needed. People needing chemotherapy treatment need constant monitoring and testing to ensure the treatment is not depleting bone strength, while those with family history of osteoporosis and those experiencing early menopause are

    recommended to have scans. Prior to the equipment arriving, people

    in Prince Rupert were required to drive over 400 kilometres round-trip to the Kitimat hospital, and those on Haida Gwaii would require a multi-day trip to have the scan done.

    While some will still have to travel due to previous appointments, manager of medical imaging Loretta Robinson said she expects the use of the machine to pick up significantly once the ability to have a bone mass density scan done in Prince Rupert becomes more widely known.

    Jalissa Stanley-Alexcee was born at the Prince Rupert Regional Hospital on Jan. 1 at 9:43 a.m. local time to mom Brenna Alexcee and dad Lyle Stanley of Prince Rupert B.C., weighing in at eight pounds, five ounces.Jalissa is also welcomed to the world by four big brothers and two older sisters.

    Recently, I talked about why we chose Kitimat as the site for Gateways marine terminal. Id like to also discuss the various steps weve taken to prevent an incident on water, and the measures weve put in place to build a comprehensive marine safety plan for Gateway.

    Safety starts with a tanker acceptance program thats as stringent as any in existence and includes an independent review of all tankers, weeks ahead of their scheduled arrival. Tankers mooring at the terminal will be double-hulled and no more than 20 years old, and will be required by independent third parties, before they enter Gateways shipping channels to show a sound maintenance and operational history. As they approach Kitimat, all vessels will be boarded and guided by B.C. Coast Pilots with expert knowledge of our coastal waters.

    Simulations conducted in varying weather conditions have shown that the largest tankers can be safely navigated without the help of tugboats. Still, Gateway is adding a tug-escort system as an additional safety measure. The Douglas Channel is already one of the deepest and widest inland waterways on North Americas west coast, and Gateways tug-escort

    system, according to risk assessment data, would reduce the already unlikely chance of a grounding incident by a further 80 to 90 per cent.

    As another Gateway marine safety initiative, were introducing land-based radar to B.C.s North Coast for the fi rst time. This radar system will be bolstered by extra navigational aids such as lights and channel markers. These enhancements arent just for Gateway they are for all vessels on B.C.s North Coast.

    Groups who oppose this project use fear tactics. Theyd have you believe an oil tanker spill is inevitable. It isnt. But dont take my word for it visit our website and read for yourself about all the work that has gone into making Gateways marine operation one of the safest in the world. Then, decide for yourself whats true.

    Following a record year in business, Terraces General Motors dealership is welcoming two new partners as its owners expand to a new location in Prince Rupert.

    MacCarthy Motors closed a purchase deal Jan. 2 on the two-property former Sherman GM dealership located just off of HWY 16 on the way into Prince Rupert BC, giving the company one of the largest geographic service areas in Canada, says its long-time owner Gary MacCarthy.

    Along with the purchase of 1001 Chamberlin Avenue and MacCarthy Motors overall business expansion, Joey Prevost and John Cooper became official partners this December, with Prevost specializing in sales and Cooper service operations.

    Well all chip in and all work together at the different departments so well all kind of manage both stores, said MacCarthy, adding he has been planning to expand for roughly one year now.

    Terrace and Kitimat are on the edge of more growth so we thought its an opportune time to grab it, he said, also pointing to

    port expansion in Prince Rupert as a pre-purchase confidence booster.

    We had a record year at this store in Terrace in 2012... Were sure business is going to continue to grow, he said.

    Of that growth, most can be seen in truck sales, he said, adding trucks sales accounted for about 70 per cent of the business last year.

    Truck sales are way up for the whole north, he said.

    Everybodys working, people are confident We went a long time here without

    that.This year, the Terrace GM

    location sold just under 800 vehicles and MacCarthy has set a 1050 goal between both stores for next year.

    And in the spirit of northern confidence, MacCarthy plans to renovate the 16,000 square foot main building of his new dealership in Prince Rupert starting this May and plans to tear down a small sales and office building currently located across the street to be turned into a parking lot to accommodate customer growth.

    For the majority of students Jan. 7 marked back-to-school, but for students in Port Edward Monday marked not a return but a new beginning.

    Instead of going to the building on Sunset Drive, students reported for the first time to the community school attached to the municipal offices on Pacific Ave. And instead of simply walking to class, the students were greeted at the door by B.C. Minister of Education Don McRae and Port Edward mayor Dave MacDonald.

    After attendance students were led into the gym by RCMP officers in red serge, while the crowd applauded their entrance, before speeches got underway.

    First up was Minister McRae, who thanked the District of Port Edward and the Prince Rupert School District for their efforts.

    Schools are important to large communities, no doubt, but they are so much

    more important to smaller communities, he said.

    A community isnt a community without small children living there, and parents want to know that there is a place for their children to learn in town...Your community is a better place because of the hard work of all of you.

    After thanking all involved, an emotional Mayor MacDonald talked about the importance of the new school.

    This is all about the boys and girls in our school, and it just makes me so happy, he said.

    It was a lot of meetings and a lot of angry parents at times, but it was so important we got this done.

    Following other speeches, including superintendent Lynn Hauptman and board chair Tina Last, adults got a tour of the school while the kinds enjoyed cake.

    A total of 14 teams took to the courts of the Russell Gamble Gymnasium over the holidays for the 22nd annual Festive C Son Challenge.

    With games running from the afternoon of Dec. 27 to the evening of Dec. 30, there was plenty of free basketball action for fans to take in. The finals of the 12-team mens tournament saw the undefeated Friendship House Cubs take on the Crest High Ballerz, the second time the two had met after the Cubs won 69-54 in the semi-final earlier in the day. The High Ballerz earned their

    spot in the final with an 82-74 win over the Friendship House Chiefs in the b-bracket final and made the most of the opportunity by winning the tournament with an 83-69 victory.

    The Most Sportsmanlike Team award went to the Night Sailors, and the Most Sportsmanlike Player was Glen Blandov of the Friendship House Cubs.

    There were just two teams playing each other in the 15 and under division, with Lax Kwalaams winning both games against the Friendship House by scores of 65-58 and 71-67. John Tait of Lax Kwalaams was named the Most Sportsmanlike Player for that division.

    The Prince Rupert Rampage faced off against the Terrace River Kings on Dec. 29 in a losing effort that included plenty of hard hitting action for the packed crowd.

    The hits came early and often in the first period as the two rivals picked up right where they left off after their last game. With 10:38 to go after play had been whistled down, the Rampages Travis Helland provided some fireworks for the fans as he put down two River Kings players with a single punch before punching down and getting on the back of River Kings captain Steve Cullis at centre ice. After a lengthy delay to sort out the penalties, Helland was assessed 14 minutes total and ejected from the game and, when the rest of the penalties were assessed, the result was a River Kings powerplay. But it would be Prince Rupert that struck first as Jordan Weir sniped a wristshot by Patrick Leal with 4:28 to go, giving Prince Rupert a 1-0 lead through 20 minutes.

    In the second Prince Rupert found themselves on the powerplay midway through, but it would be the River Kings Craig Vinneau who put one past Keano Wilson from in close for the tying, shorthanded goal with 12:09 to play. Just over four minutes later Nathan Soucie fired one on Wilson that he thought he had but that trickled through to give the River Kings the lead. While Prince Rupert had a lot of

    good chances late in the second, including a great pad save by Leal from right in front, the River Kings would keep that lead heading into the third.

    And late in the third the River Kings would put the proverbial nail in the coffin as Derick Jurista finished off a 3-on-1 rush and Soucie capitalized on a fall by Wilson that left him with a wide-open net to shoot on with 4:09 to go. In the end the River King took the 4-1 win.

    When the two teams met again in Terrace on Jan. 4, it was a different story, though it looked like the River Kings were on their way to sweeping the series.

    Terrace captain Steve Cullis opened the scoring just over halfway through the first, while Chris Kirby made it 2-0 with just 49 seconds left in the first.

    In the second the Rampage responded as Bryan Tates pulled the team to within one less than three minutes in, only for Cullis to extend the Terrace lead less than a minute later. But the rest of the game would be all Rampage. With just under 13 minutes to go captain Jared Meers lessened the gap to one and with 2:41 to go Devin Palmer tied things up at three going into the final frame.

    In the third period, Kory Movold scored just 16 seconds in to put the Rampage up 4-3, and that would be all the scoring in the game.

    The Rampage will host the league-leading Smithers steelheads on Saturday and face the Houston Luckies on Sunday.

  • Ive always been a firm believer of avoiding unnecessary panic. Sometimes it really is better not to know.

    City councillor Joy Thorkelson and I are on the same page, at least when it comes to tsunami warning sirens.

    At a recent council meeting, Thorkelson argued having sirens designed to go off in low lying areas during a tsunami warning could cause unnecessary panic for people who arent in low lying areas. At first her concern didnt make sense to me; why would you not take every measure possible to be safe in an emergency? However, following Saturdays tsunami warning, I realize how valid Thorkelsons point was.

    Many criticized the City of Prince Rupert for not having a siren after the October tsunami warning, but if the City had been fast acting in installing a siren many would have been needlessly frightened into thinking the big one was coming early Saturday morning. To me, having sirens wake up families into a panicked state for a non-event seems like more harm than help, especially when many woken up by the sirens would not even be in low lying areas and would already be out of the way of a potential wave.

    In Prince Rupert we have quick-acting and reliable emergency service crews who, in both of the recent tsunami warnings, have gotten people who need to evacuate out of low lying areas out. Like they say, if something aint broke, dont fix it! Additionally, when Dave McKenzie, local fire chief, made a presentation to council at the already mentioned meeting, to me it didnt seem like he did put any urgency on having a siren installed, and hes one of many responsible for getting people out of low lying areas.

    And Im sure many residents living near Beach Place and Water Street, or Rupertites who live near any of the low lying areas, are completely fine that they slept peacefully through the warning instead of fearing for their lives.

    I know I did.

    Now that the New Year is underway, I thought it a good time to come up with a wish list for the people of the North Coast in 2013.

    These are things that, while I would like to see them happen, arent necessarily going to come to fruition as a number of them are out of the hands of us in Prince Rupert. But a guy can hope, cant he?

    First and foremost, a Conservation Office or at least a conservation officer posted in Prince Rupert. Theres a reason so many wildlife issues go unresolved or unreported, and that is simply because the nearest CO is 140 kilometres away. If you spot a bear or a wolf in the neighbourhood and report it, by the time the CO gets geared up and arrives (if he/she leaves at all) about two hours have passed and the animal you saw could be halfway

    to Timbuktu. It really defeats the purpose. Given that the front page of the past three weeks have had to do with shootings related to wolfs, coupled with this summers bear scare in Port Edward, I think the rational for this is self explanatory.

    Second on the list, the shovels hitting the ground on the Phase II expansion. Given that Don Krusel has stated that he expects new capacity to come online in 2015, this could easily be a reality this year. With the expansion comes not only hundreds of construction jobs, but more permanent high paying jobs Prince Rupert needs right now. Lets face

    it, the town is turning the corner but were still not there yet.

    Next up, a clear direction on Watson Island and the emergency services building. These two things have been looming like a cloud over the tax payers of Prince Rupert for a number of years and the uncertainty

    associated with each has become tiring. Will the province build a new detachment and bill the City? Will Watson Island be developed and will the City have to pay restitution to Sun Wave Forest Products? Hopefully 2013 will see a final resolution to these issues so the people of Prince Rupert can get these monkeys off our back.

    I hope more people realize the importance of shopping local and that you dont need to go to Terrace to shop. If you can buy something here then do it - your supporting the community and providing jobs to your neighbours.

    Finally, and this may be coming from left field, but the northern B.C. as a whole really needs a passport office somewhere in the region. This came to light recently due to the need for an expedited passport. Anyone from Prince George south could make a quick day trip to Vancouver to have the passport done in 24 hours - here in the northwest people are looking at either a three week wait or a $650 flight to the Lower Mainland and back.

    By Bruce WishartThe Northern View

    Around this time each year I like to review the background and mandate of Tourism Prince Rupert. Our organization has deep roots in the community, and we work to strengthen an industry that is as old as the city itself.

    Tourism Prince Rupert was first established as a Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) in the 1930s - it is one of the oldest in the province - although marketing Prince Rupert to visitors stretches back to the days of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway.

    We are one of the original seven grandfathered two per cent communities. Whistler was the first municipality to begin collecting the additional hotel tax, in 1988, and Prince Rupert followed in 1990.

    As the 1990s progressed, it became clear that Prince Rupert faced an increasingly competitive global marketplace. Tourism was becoming a more and more complex industry, and gone were the days of simply opening up a visitors bureau and trusting to enthusiasm and luck. In 1998 Tourism Prince Rupert was created as an advisory board that quickly identified that inadequate staffing and budget at the CVB prevented the effective tourism marketing in Prince Rupert, and that we needed to join the growing number of communities with Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs). Tourism Prince Rupert was incorporated as a non-profit society on November 8, 1999, replacing the CVB, to conduct Prince Ruperts tourism marketing and advocacy.

    Tourism Prince Rupert is membership-driven, representing both the community at large and the businesses impacted by the tourism industry. Four of our volunteer directors are elected by the membership, with the remaining five appointed by City Council. There are two full-time staff. I was hired in 2003, having spent almost thirty years in print and broadcast media, to serve as CEO. Monika Clifton, who spent five seasons in the Prince Rupert Visitor Centre before joining Tourism Prince Rupert, has now been Director of Marketing for five years.

    Of course, we have limited resources, particularly when compared to the diverse product that we have here to market. Tourism is so multi-faceted, and with so many different sectors, that there are almost as many opinions about where we should devote these limited resources as there are industry stakeholders.

    Our marketing efforts are driven by the Prince Rupert Tourism Plan. This was created through a Tourism BC program called Community Tourism Foundations (CTF), which provided a skilled facilitator and gathered together a large group of Prince Rupert tourism stakeholders. After conducting a detailed study of tourism here, this group considered available resources and the communitys priorities.

    They decided which community groups would be responsible for each tactic, and built a manageable plan with clear, measurable goals. On the marketing side many of the tactics that were the responsibility of TPR have either been accomplished since the Tourism Plan was implemented in 2008, or have been made impractical by changes in marketing. More importantly the local tourism landscape has changed.

    Early this year Tourism BC will be conducting a CTF revisit in Prince Rupert, gathering a working group under the same facilitator as before to create a new multi-year Tourism Plan that reflects todays realities. Were looking forward to having the fresh direction from the community.

    We dont have the money or manpower to do everything, but through working together within the community we can continue to make ourselves better able to compete with each passing year.

    Talking tourism: TPr mandate Eyes on the harbour a boon in emergenciesEarly Saturday morn-ing, for the sec-ond time in three months, Prince Rupert was shaken by a sizable earthquake.

    The 7.5-magnitude quake triggered a tsunami warning. City residents were encouraged to stay away from low-lying areas of the waterfront.

    The Port of Prince Rupert responded immediately by establishing its Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) at the Prince Rupert Port Authority offices on the central waterfront. The City of Prince Rupert established a similar base of operations at City Hall; the District of Port Edward did the same at its municipal complex.

    The quick and coordinated response was similar to that of October 27th when a 7.7 magnitude quake occurred off Haida Gwaii. Port Authority personnel established and maintained communication with local agencies and stakeholdersincluding the Canadian Coast Guard, the City of Prince Rupert, RCMP and Fire Department, as well as local and regional media to provide updated information.

    However, unlike the earthquake in October, the tsunami warning was canceled less than three hours after the initial warning. Operations at port terminals were able to continue without major interruption.

    What is the Prince Rupert Port Authoritys role in emergency situations or natural disasters? It works to ensure the safety of the port communityboth people and equipment. As priorities go, it ranks at the very top.

    The Port Security Operations Centre (PSOC) plays a vital role in the coordination of emergency response. The PSOC is staffed round-the-clock, seven days a week. Through the use of dozens of high-definition cameras, Commissionaires monitor activity at all Port properties and in Prince Ruperts harbour from one secure, central location. Vessels broadcasting AIS (automatic identification system) signals are tracked in real time on a map of the inner and outer harbours.

    Our state-of-the-art digital security network is on the leading edge, said Dave Fisher, Manager of Security for the Prince Rupert Port Authority. It does more than make it possible to monitor port properties for security risks. In emergency situations, it allows us to anticipate and stay ahead of breaking issues.

    By investing millions of dollars into the infrastructure of this centre and its constant staffing, the Port Authority can not only respond to urgent issues but provide support and information to local emergency service providers and security agencies.

    A workstation in the PSOC is reserved for use by the RCMP and other organizations like the Canadian Border Services Agency.

    Responding to events like earthquakes and their corresponding tsunami warnings is not a duty anyone relishesbut it is possible to do it calmly, thoroughly, and professionally. The Port Authoritys high-tech tools enable a fast and well-coordinated response.

    Its important for all citizens to be prepared in case of an unexpected emergency, whether it takes place during the working dayor in the early-morning hours of a winter weekend.

    HUDSON, MATILDAJanuary 25, 1920 ~December 21, 2012

    Passed away peacefully on December 21 at her home in her 92nd year. Matilda was the loyal widow of Floyd Percival (Percy) Hudson and is lovingly remembered by daughters Rose-Marie and Lenore, son Vernon, granddaughters Tamara and Darcie Lu, grand-sons Jorin and Mitchell, and great grandsons Soren, Drae and Marcus. Born on Lewis Island, BC and raised in Prince Rupert, BC, Matilda served her country over-seas in England and Hol-land during WWII as a CWAC. Throughout her life Matilda opened her home and heart to many children, working as a mothers helper and serv-ing as a foster mother for many years. In Prince Rupert, she is known to many as Tawny Owl for the 2nd Prince Rupert Pack and Miller Bay.... We knew you had to leave us but you did not go alone, for part of us went with you the day God took you home. A private family gather-ing was held.

    Prince Ruperts wide-ranging talent will be showcased during the second annual Prince Ruperts Got Talent competition in February, but first auditions for the performance must take place.

    We have a very talented community We have a beautiful

    theatre for people to perform in and for some it will be their first time on stage, Crystal Lorette, general manager of the Lester Centre, said.

    The competition is open to people from all mediums including dancers, singers, musicians, comedians, contortionists, soloists and more, with competitors being ranked by a panel of

    judges. People must be 25 and under

    to compete, with the top winner taking home a cash prize of $1,000.

    Auditions for the showcase will be happening on Jan. 10 to Jan. 12. Anyone interested in auditioning is encourage to e-mail CrystalL@lestercentre.ca or call the theatre at 250-627-8888.
