    owners question assessments spikesBy Quinn Bender

    The Northern View

    Following BC Assessments assertion early January that properties would see a modest increase of three to seven per cent this year, some Prince Rupert residents were shocked to discover the actual numbers when they arrived in the mail.

    Ours went up $50,000! wrote Janis Alexander-Gray on The Northern Views Facebook page.

    I thought it was a typo. We could never sell our house

    for what its assessed at, read another post.

    As complaints filed in to social media sites, a number of Prince Rupert residents, who claim their properties underwent no improvements in the past year,

    simply wanted to know why their propertys assessment spiked upward of 25 per cent a dollar figure ranging from $30,000 to $60,000. Prince Rupert Blvd resident France Powell saw her property jump 26 per cent.

    I understand why properties are going up in value and Im happy to pay taxes for things like schools thats my duty and Im happy to pay for community services. But when Im presented with such a steep increase, I would like to know why.

    $5 billion pipeline planned

    By DeLynda PilonBlack Press

    He never doubted Canada would win the gold medal in hockey at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

    In fact, Russ Girling was even happy when the teams tied two-all. It made it more interesting.

    I had no doubt they were going to win. Similarly thats the case for B.C.s development of this resource, he said.

    Girling is the president and CEO of TransCanada Corp. and TransCanada Pipeline Ltd., the company chosen to design, build, own and operate the proposed $5 billion Prince Rupert Gas Transmission project for Progress Energy.

    The line will move natural gas from the North Montney region (near Fort St. John) to the Pacific Northwest LNG plant which will be constructed near Prince Rupert.

    Girling said at TransCanada they have the view that natural gas may be one of the most significant drivers of the economy of Canada.

    These arent just words. We are putting our money where our mouth is, he said.

    GATEWAYperspectives

    Over the last few months, Ive talked about the precautions, the safety measures, and the selection criteria involved in the marine elements of the Gateway project all of them intended to prevent an oil spill on water. Ive also discussed how Gateways marine safety program was examined by an independent risk assessment group, which determined that the chances of a major spill are once in more than 15,000 years.

    Although statistics and reports suggest a marine oil spill is unlikely, you want to know what if one does occur? How will Gateway be prepared? While the chances are slim, we continue to develop a world-class marine response program.

    The Northern Gateway Project includes a spill response capacity thats more than three times the Canadian regulation. And while the Canadian requirement for oil spill response is 72 hours plus travel time, our response time will be a fraction of that number 6 to 12 hours in the marine channels. This is a signifi cant increase to the response capability available to B.C.s north coast. Additionally, for immediate response, our tug escorts will be

    equipped with booms, oil skimmers, and fi refi ghting equipment to provide enhanced initial containment, and they will be available to all marine traffi c in the event of an incident.

    We will store equipment, such as containment and absorbent booms, skimmers, and waste storage, in multiple well-maintained, readily accessible response bases, providing a wider area of coverage in a shorter amount of time. Barges will also be located throughout the marine channels for additional storage and equipment mobilization. We are committed to having staff, contractors, and partners in place to maintain that enhanced state of readiness.

    The Gateway project will likely never see a major marine oil spill. But if it does, well be prepared to protect our coastline.

    Powell says she refurbished her front steps last year, but has done no other home improvements. Comparable homes in Prince Rupert saw similar increases, but on Powells street the only home that sold last year did so for 16 per cent less of its assessed value.

    I have done nothing to the building that would justify this assessment, said Powell.

    But without a formal review of the property BC Assessment said it is unable to offer a satisfactory explanation to homeowners like Powell.

    Our appraisers look at data, said Geoff Radkie, a deputy auditor with BC Assessment.

    They analyze current sales in the area. Some of the newer homes in Prince Rupert were indicating sales of a 25 per cent increase. If there is a similar property in that area its going to reflect that market value assessment.

    That said, we will look at the type of home too. Were not going to value a home built in 1940 the same as a brand new home. Its about the characteristics the age, the quality, the size, the condition,

    what kind of view or the location its in [But] we do mass appraisals, so there are ones that slip through the cracks.

    Radkie added less than two per cent of Rupertites contested their assessments last year. But his department is more than willing to review any property, and if there is a mistake that needs looking at well definitely look at it and make sure its correct.

    Property owners who feel their assessed value doesnt reflect the actual value can request an assessment review by calling 1-866-825-8322 or stop by the BC Assessment office at 4545 Lazelle Ave. in Terrace.

    Last year, 6th Avenue West homeowner Tristan Higginson requested a review of his $123,000 assessment, resulting in a $24,000 reduction. He said the two key reasons for the reassessment was comparable listings on his block and then-unfinished home renovations.

    I showed her similar listings and she agreed with my rational, said Higginson.

    Theres a big difference between a finished house and an unfinished one.

    The point now is building transportation to get the product to off-shore markets.

    Participating in new markets is nothing new to TransCanada.

    It was pivotal in bringing natural gas from the west to markets in the east. In the 1950s it took natural gas to California, and other U.S. markets.

    Today its one of the largest pipeline companies in North

    America, he said. We move about 20 per cent

    of the supply in North America. We are the third largest base of operations in North America. It is this long-term experience we are going to bring to B.C.

    Girling spoke about the importance of safety to TransCanada as well as social licence.

    We do recognize maintaining our social licence is based on

    trust, he said.Girling said they have a lot

    of community engagement, including Aboriginal groups, adding they have engaged with more than 150 communities within 50 kilometresm of the pipeline system.

    He added they have the single largest gathering system in North America.

    Girling said the descriptions, which start the environmental

    process, one provincial and one federal, were both filed in April. In 2013, the company will be gathering data for an advanced engineer design.

    The Pacific northwest LNG project should be in service by 2018.

    We are pleased to be partners with Progress on this project, Girling said.

    The project will extend Nova

    Gas further into B.C., interconnect with Prince Rupert and travel further north to connect with additional reserves.

    He added 20 Aboriginal communities have already been contacted with the news. More will follow as the engagement process begins.

    Approximately 2,500 people will be involved in the construction process, and there will be numerous spin-off benefits.

    The upper level of the Rupert Square Mall was packed on the evening of Jan. 11 as protesters came out for another Idle No More rally.

    Speakers voiced their frustration with the actions of the Federal Government, and in particular Prime Minister Stephen Harper, in relation to Aboriginal rights and the omnibus budget bill that makes changes to the environmental assessment process.

    They are trying to take away our land and our water... We are still here and we are telling you it is not for sale. Harper can have

    his oil, but we will still have our land, said Stan Dennis Sr.

    On behalf of the Tsimshian people of the North Coast: You are breaking our laws, added Murray Smith.

    Gerald Stewart called for Aboriginal people across the country to stand up and send a message to the government.

    It takes all of us to come together to preserve our rights and our self-esteem... They have been waiting a long time until they think we are weak, and maybe we are. They are ignoring us and we need to stand together, he said.

    My hope is for the future of my children and their children so that there is something here for

    them... We have nowhere else to go, so we must make a stand.

    Three mall security and two RCMP officers were on the scene and when one of the constables asked organizers to take the rally outside the group performed a prayer song in memory of Kevin Brian from Lax Kwalaams before drumming out of the mall.

    We are a peaceful nation, we are not here to wreck anything or disturb anyone. We just want our voices heard, said Smith, who repeatedly stressed the importance or protesting in a respectful way.

    Once outside, Smith and Dennis led the procession through downtown Prince Rupert.

    NOTICE OF POWER INTERRUPTION IN KITKATLA AND OONA RIVER

    By Shaun ThomasThe Northern View

    Crews are on the site of the old King Edward School in Prince Rupert, as work to demolish the building gets underway.

    The school, which borders the 400 block of 7th and 8th Avenue East, shut its doors in 2001 and has been boarded up since. After years of sitting empty, the province sold the school to the Metlakatla First Nation. According to Metlakatla Chief Harold Leighton, initial plans for the site did not call for the building to be torn down.

    The previous plans we had

    were based on using the existing facility. The plans were for a training centre and an elders centre, he explained.

    We did a study of the building and the life of it and that brought us to the pilings holding the structure up. It is held up by many pilings, so we tested the pilings to see if we could get an extended life out of them, but unfortunately the pilings were deteriorated to a point where it didnt make sense to try to salvage any of them, he said.

    With the building itself no longer being left on the site, Leighton said the Band is in the

    midst of determining the best use for the lot.

    Because of the cost of the demolition, we need to look at something more viable that may recover the costs over time. Were looking at different options, residential or commercial, but we will still move forward with the original plans for it if it is feasible, he said.

    But once you remove the pilings you have to replace them with something, so the cost is going to be pretty high to develop that property. Weve invested a fair amount in it already, so it is still worth pursuing the development.

    A new officer-in-charge has been assigned to the Prince Rupert RCMP detachment, but at press time both City hall and the police force are

    not releasing a name. Prince Rupert Mayor Jack Mussallem said he and council were active in the RCMPs selection process. They chose a candidate with a background in municipalities similar to Prince Rupert, which serves as a hub

    to outlying communities. Most importantly, said Mussallem, he and council sought someone experienced in dealing with an influx of workforce personnel due to municipal growth.

    We will experience that as

    more and more port facilities develop, said Mussallem. When you have that kind of growth there are considerations you have to make for policing services, for health services, for fire and rescue services. There are a variety of

    considerations.Outgoing Inspector Bob

    Killbery retires this month. No official start date has been set for the new officer-in-charge. Mussallem will release the officers name once he or she arrives in the city.

    Without you our event would not have been the success it was. Please forgive us if we have inadvertently forgot

    to list your name.

    THANK YOU The PRINCE RUPERT LIONS CLUB

    would like to say

    to the participants and sponsors of our Press Release

    The Prince Rupert Community Enrichment Society is proud to announce that the society has once again achieved a 4 year accreditation through Council on Accreditation.

    COA accreditation is an objective, independent, and reliable validation of an agencys performance. The COA accreditation process involves a detailed review and analysis of an organizations administration, management, and service delivery functions against international standards of best practice. The standards driving accreditation ensure that services are well-coordinated, culturally competent, evidence-based, outcomes-oriented, and provided by a skilled and supported workforce. COA accreditation demonstrates accountability in the management of resources, sets standardized best practice thresholds for service and administration, and increases organizational capacity and accountability by creating a framework for ongoing quality improvement.

    To achieve COA accreditation, the Prince Rupert Community Enrichment Society first provided written evidence of compliance with the COA Standards. Thereafter, a group of specially trained volunteer Peer Reviewers confirmed adherence to these standards during a series of on-site interviews with trustees, staff and clients.

    Based on their findings, COAs volunteer-based Accreditation Commission voted that the Prince Rupert Community Enrichment Society had successfully met the criteria for accreditation.Thank you to all who participated in this process.

    More than $7 million of property was sold in Prince Rupert in 2012 than in 2011.

    A total of 160 properties worth $26.8 million were sold in 2012 compared to 116 properties worth $19.3 million in 2011 a difference of 44 properties and $7.5 million.

    Of those properties, 127 were single family homes and the average selling price was $183,896. The numbers for 2012 are the highest in three years, as in 2011 there were 96 homes sold for an average of $175,217 and in 2010 there were 97 homes sold for an average of $179,090. In addition to the single family homes, there were five half-duplexes and 10 parcels of vacant

    land sold during the year. I think these sales can be

    attributed to incoming investment and jobs in Prince Rupert. People are no longer leaving Prince Rupert to find work, and in fact the opposite is true and we have people coming to Prince Rupert for work, said Keith Lambourne of Royal LePage Prince Rupert.

    Weve left the buyers market behind, in my opinion. There have been multiple offers on a number of properties, and I think that is only going to continue in 2013.

    Another success story, said Lambourne, is the turnaround in commercial property sales in the community.

    For the first time in five years we are seeing significant activity in the commercial real estate sector, driven by incoming

    investment and the high paying jobs coming with port activity, he said.

    Charles Hays dream may have taken over 100 years to come true, but I think that is where we are going in the years ahead.

    However, Prince Rupert still has the lowest number of properties sold in the northwest. Neighbouring Terrace had 318 properties worth $65.9 million sell in 2012, Kitimat had 239 properties worth $41.3 million sell and Smithers had 235 properties worth $59.1 million sell.

    The average selling price of homes in Prince Rupert was lower than in Smithers and Terrace, at $258,808 and $215,778 respectively, and was slightly higher than Kitimats $181,074.

    Prince Rupert RCMP executed a search warrant at a residence in

    the early morning of Jan. 5 and seized several ounces of illegal drugs.

    RCMP told the Prince Rupert Northern View a traffic stop

    led to the seizure of cocaine on an individual. Further investigation led to the execution of a search warrant on Heron Road where investigators seized

    approximately three ounces of cocaine and five ounces of marijuana, as well as items used in the trafficking of the drugs.

    The investigation is ongoing,

    and no charges have been laid at this time.

    RCMP asking anyone that may have information regarding this incident to call 250-627-0700.

  • British Colum-bias educa-tion system is changing, so it only makes sense to modify the current standardized testing model of the Foun-dation Skills Assess-ment Test.

    The British C o l u m b i a n government wants to modernize the education system by making it more flexible and responsive to students

    I do agree a test to helps determine what area schools and teachers need to work on is a good idea, however the current model isnt working. Its widely known that students who come from wealthy families tend to do better in school than those who come from less fortunate families.

    A report done by Moneysense magazine stated Prince Ruperts unemployment rate was the second worst in Canada in the spring, which leads me to believe many of our school districts children fall under the likely-to-not-do-as-well-as-wealthy-students umbrella.

    Example of this? The Fraser Institute uses results to rank schools

    in British Columbia, with private schools nearly always performing better than public.

    Another problem with FSA testing is theres little motivation for students to want to put all their efforts into the test. I remember being in Grade 7 and thinking if the test didnt count as part of my final grade, why even bother?

    Its hard to motivate a child to care about performing at their greatest abilities on a test that doesnt even count as part of their grade, but just a way for the government to see what areas schools need to work on.

    One thing I keep hearing is oh, of course teachers dont like the current model, it shows when theyre not doing their job.

    How could the results reflect teachers abilities when there are so many other factors contributing to how students perform on the tests?

    Pulling up to the Rupert Square Mall on Friday night, one couldnt help but notice the two police cruis-ers parked outside the upper entrance.

    Of course, the reason for those of cruisers became evident when the throngs of people standing in the entry way came into sight.

    The Idle No More movement once again took to the mall to send a message about their frustration with the Conservative governments handling of Aboriginal issues. Unlike last time, however, there were two RCMP constables standing in the crowd, in addition to the three mall security guards standing beside mall owner Tom Cheng.

    And when organizers took the megaphone and announced that the constables had requested the

    rally move outside, there was an audible groan and a few shouts of unfairness due to the cold temperature and the elders present.

    It was a situation that could have gone badly really quickly, given the numbers that were there, but it didnt. Instead, the group played a prayer song in remembrance of the young Lax Kwalaams man who was killed in an accident on the highway last week before drumming those in attendance outside to continue the rally.

    The constables and the mall security let them finish and move on peacefully to drum through downtown.

    In this case, everyone

    involved is to be commended, but in particularly elder Murray Smith.

    W h i l e everyone else was trying to figure out how to react to the request to leave the mall, Smith took the m e g a p h o n e and stressed the importance of respect of the

    government respecting First Nations and of those in the mall respecting the wishes of the owners. As Smith said, the Idle No More movement needs to be done in a respectful manner.

    Idle No More is a movement that has garnered national attention and gained significant momentum, bolstered in

    large part by the hunger strike staged by Attawapiskat chief Theresa Spence in Ottawa. While other rallies in other parts of the country have blocked highways and railways, here on the north coast the rallies have been peaceful, with one at the courthouse and two in the mall.

    These types of rallies may not garner the same national attention as those designed to create conflict, but they send a message that things need to change.

    And showing the impact of peaceful protests of this nature across the country, Fridays rally came on the same day as the Assembly of First Nations met with Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Governor General David Johnston to discuss their concerns in a respectful manner.

    As Smith said, it is all about respect.

    Prince Ruperts Idle No More all about respect

  • Editor:As the joint review panel

    hearings wrapped up this week in Victoria, I feel grateful to have been one of a select few able to voice their opinion directly to the three-member panel.

    With only 10 minutes to speak and two Enbridge representatives present (while the public was banned), I provided all the research and data I have found. In my opinion, the proposed tanker route is too dangerous for safe navigation.

    Ironically, one report I found was completed for Northern Gateway Pipelines LP, (available on the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency website). It revealed that during simulated

    tanker runs, pilots often gave the simulations a safety rating of two or three out of a possible five.

    The report also revealed that these large vessels will travel through areas such as Principe Channel, which is just 1.4 kilometres wide.

    Such vessels have a full turn radius of 1.8 km and can take up to 3.75 km to come to a full stop while running astern at 10 knots.

    We have to keep in mind, that each of these vessels is carrying 1.5 million litres in fuel oil alone. Plus, coastal currents can reach up to 16 nautical miles per hour.

    Winter storms frequently bring gale force and hurricane

    force winds, and we cannot ignore the risk posed from earthquakes, such as the 7.8-magnitude event off the coast of Haida Gwaii a mere four months ago.

    The risks are too great, and this is just a small portion of the concerning information I found.

    While many were unable to voice their own opinions to the panel, I sincerely encourage all British Columbians to continue to investigate and question the proposed project, in order to protect our beautiful, unique and sensitive coastal ecosystems.

    Editor: Re: Will LNG become the

    enviro-villain of 2013, Jan. 2 Prince Rupert Northern View.

    At first reading of reporter Tom Fletchers confused missive sent to us from the smoggy confines of downtown Victoria, published in The Northern View under an attention grabber header, I felt angry but probably not for the reasons for which Mr.Fletcher was fishing.

    He casts about taking shots at First Nations for wanting to develop sustainable industries that will benefit coastal communities and then from out of the wild blue yonder, misaligns the Yellowstone to Yukon conservation initiative over in the Rockies. The following terrifying mission statement from their website has Mr. Fletcher quaking in his slippers, People working together to maintain and restore the unique heritage of the Yellowstone to Yukon region.

    Then he gets up on his high horse and condemns Canadian organizations who accept money from American outfits to help

    fund a broader discussion into the activities of American and the other foreign investors who are lined up at our door ready to pour in billions of dollars, so that presumably they will take out of the country billions and billions of dollars in profit by reselling our resources. One gets the impression that Mr. Fletcher thinks foreign companies invest billions out of the goodness of the heart and that those who might have a question or two about these massive projects are suspect and in his words eco-propagandists.

    British Columbians, as stewards of our lands and waters are currently writing the history of how we manage our resources. We are deciding how much foreign investment is appropriate, what type of

    projects are environmentally sound or not, where the risks are or not, what our benefits will be or not? I have no problem with an in depth discussion around these critical and far reaching questions and it does not frighten nor upset me if outsiders, proponent or otherwise fund our discussions about our resources. So they should as long as there is disclosure and its all taxable income. That said we need to be aware that foreign ideological battles follow their money.

    Mr. Fletchers lazy journalism, if you can call it journalism, is easy enough to sort out, also that he writes like a shill. But I do take exception to his cynical and high-handed attitude where he belittles local peoples interests and to his methods, which are to manipulate emotions and peddle mischief. We need intelligent and considered journalism so that good decision-making is supported, not this petty nonsense.

    Ridley Island Corridor Project LaunchedThis week marks the official start of the Ridley Island Road, Rail Utility Corridor proj-ect in Prince Rupert, and with it comes some significant changes to the indus-trial site that is currently home to Prince Rupert Grain and Ridley Terminals Inc.

    The Road, Rail and Utility Corridor (RRUC) is a $90 million project that will create shared infrastructure for future terminal developments on Ridley Island, 17 kilometres from downtown Prince Rupert. The industrial site is administered by the Prince Rupert Port Authority.

    The face of Ridley Island began to change over one year ago when Ridley Terminals Inc. began its Capacity Realization Project. 44 acres of new lands were cleared for expansion. A third stacker/reclaimer machine arrived late in 2012.

    Now the pace of change has picked up. Surveyors for the RRUC arrived onsite this week, and construction crews are scheduled to break ground February 1st. They will begin work that could involve up to 90 workers by the end of March.

    Given the scope of these projects, the entirety of Ridley Island is now classified as an active construction zone. Even stricter safety protocols for workers and visitors are expected to take effect before the end of January.

    Of course, the flow of goods through Prince Rupert Grain and RTI needs to continue unimpeded. Ridley Island users will be meeting regularly to discuss how regular operations can be streamlined in the midst of the major project. They will consider improved safety measures such as a reduction in the speed limit for the Ridley Island road from 50 km/hr to 30 km/hr.

    The safety of everyone on Ridley Island is a priority for us and the terminal operators, says Kerry Northcott, Health and Safety Officer for the RRUC project. With that in mind, well be discussing ways to maintain the high safety standards that already exist and discuss the potential of new policies that will have the least amount of impact to operations.

    The initial work on the RRUC will take place on the eastern side of Ridley Island along Porpoise Harbour. Construction crews will be working during daylight hours, taking into consideration the residents of Port Edward that may be affected by noise from the work sites across the harbour.

    The RRUC Site Office was established on the island late in 2012. The project team is now stationed there for the duration of work.

    The RRUC project team includes Project Accountant Joanne Donohoe, Field Superintendent Carlito Guzman, Health and Safety Officer Kerry Northcott, and Project Manager Roger Morin, with an Administrative Assistant to join later this month.

    Were a small team, but were very energetic, says Morin. Weve already been working together for several months to bring the project to this point, so its exciting for us to now have construction about to proceed.

    The Prince Rupert Port Authority will be launching a public webcam through its website that will give Prince Rupert residentsand the rest of the worlda birds-eye-view of the Ridley Island Road, Rail and Utility Corridor project in action.

    The new feature will be available online at www.rupertport.com following the groundbreaking in February.

    Documents obtained by the Prince Rupert Northern View show Northern Health and the IUOE are still far apart when it comes to remedies stemming from an Oct. 31 Labour Relations Board (LRB) ruling.

    A Dec. 21 letter to the B.C. Labour Relations Board from Moore, Edgar, Lyster, the lawyers representing the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE), lists eight remedies being sought. These include reinstating the power engineers to the positions they held previously; compensating three of the five for monetary losses; an order

    prohibiting the employer from engaging in acts that would achieve the same objective as this situation; continuing the power engineer positions; not changing those positions except under certain positions; posting future maintenance positions as IUOE jobs, and reimbursing the IUOE be for legal fees and other fees associated with the dispute. The union is further asking that former manager of facilities and support services Michael Curnes, health services administrator Sheila Gordon-Payne, northwest region human resources manager Fred Alaggia, director of strategic labour relations Fred Cummings and former Northern Health COO Marina Ellison, have no further involvement in future

    decisions affecting the power engineers. They have all participated in a deceitful

    anti-union scheme. They should not be permitted to engage in any further discussions or decisions about these jobs and their unions. Their conduct, both in engaging in this initiative and in the boards proceedings, make this clear, Richard Edgar of Moore, Edgar, Lyster states in the letter to the LRB.

    An earlier letter from Harris and Company, the lawyers representing Northern Health, states that remediation to the union should be minimal, if at all, based on the fact that the IUOE is on record as not objecting to the change in technology that saw the old steam boilers replaced with new electrical boilers.

    The effect of the IUOE not objecting to technological change is that it is not now in a position to claim any remedy that is based or founded on the pre-technological change situation at Prince Rupert Regional Hospital, Peter Csiszar of Harris and Company states.

    Northern Health contends there is no need for the engineers to be reinstated because the IUOE positions were changed due to the move to electrical boilers.

    There can be no legal basis for this employer to have power engineer positions which are not required with the technology that the IUOE accepts as having been appropriate for the employer to implement, Csiszar stated.

    My Mountain Co-op announced on Jan. 11 the formal completion of the deal that gives them ownership of the Shames Mountain Ski Area.

    On Dec. 21, 2012 the provincial governments forests, lands and natural resources ministry transferred the operating agreement for the ski facility from the ski corporation to the co-op.

    That move followed the payment by the ski corporation to the province of $125,000 to close the books on an unpaid tourism development loan that dates back years.

    Paying the $125,000 to wind up the loan was a condition of the operating agreement being assigned to the co-op.

    The payment was part of an agreement released in November 2012 which cleared the way for the non profit co-op to purchase the ski facility. The province wrote off the remaining part of the tourism loan, which is approximately $400,000, in return for the $125,000 payment from the ski corporation.

    Shames Mountain Ski Corporation president Gerry Martin said the $125,000 was part of the purchase price paid by My Mountain Co-op in late 2011 to the corporation.

    It was being held in trust so that we could

    pay the government, said Martin.The transfer of the operating agreement

    is about the last of the official transactions between the co-op and the ski corporation, he added.

    Although the ski corporation dropped its original asking price drastically so that the co-op could make the purchase, Martin said the purchase to the co-op was the best solution to keeping the mountain open and in local hands.

    The co-op has had good support from people, from businesses and local governments. Its had a good response from the public because they feel a part of the ownership, Martin continued.

    Its good for all of the communities in the area.

    Martin said good snow conditions last year and this year have helped the co-op establish itself.

    Also owed the province was $130,000 in unpaid royalties and interest, an amount that was reduced to $88,579 when $46,767 in interest was written off by the province. The co-op agreed to take on the $88,579 debt and will repay it with interest over the next 10 years.

    The co-op had paid the ski corporation $360,000 in 2011 to buy the ski facility and has been operating it under a lease pending a resolution of the money owed the province.

    Francophone entertainers, film and food will all be part of the third annual Sugar Shack Festival LAssociation des Francophones et Francophiles du Nord-Ouest (AFFNO) is currently preparing for.

    The Sugar Shack Festival celebrates francophone culture and in some cases introduces people to it One of AFFNOs goals is to get people more interested in the language, Patrick Witwicki, executive director of AFFNO, said.

    The festival will start with a kick-off social at Cowpuccinos on Wednesday, Jan. 23, starting at 7 p.m.

    The following evening the Prince Rupert Community Arts Council will play a francophone film at the Prince Rupert Cinema starting at 7 p.m.

    For this years festival, a francophone artist will be travelling to Prince Rupert to entertain Sugar Shack attendees and to also educate local students on the French culture. Angela Roy of the musical group LExpression Collective will be holding workshops at both Roosevelt Ecole and Prince Rupert Middle School throughout the week, and then will be joined by her bandmates for a performance at the Tom Rooney Playhouse at 8 p.m. on Jan. 25, where they will show off their folk/reggae sound to an adult-only crowd.

    The festival will wrap up with the main event, the Sugar Shack Brunch, which will take place on Jan. 26 starting at 11 a.m. in the Dick St. Louis auditorium at the civic centre. The traditional brunch will include tortires and sugar pie, as well as the children-favourite, maple toffee served on snow.

    LExpression Collective will also be providing entertainment at the brunch, with more family oriented music than their Tom Rooney performance.

    Tickets for LExpression Collective performance at the Tom Rooney can be purchased at Teddys or at the door. Tickets for the brunch can be purchased at Cooks Jewellers or through the AFFNO office at 250-627-1313.

    calmer, cleaner madchild still rocks stageSwollen Members frontman targets Prince Rupert for solo performance

    Shane Bunting (MadChild) solo album, Dope Sick, a collection of tracks largely inspired by his recovery from drug addiction.

    By Quinn BenderThe Northern View

    When a course-voiced and groggy Shane Bunting answers the phone for our 1 p.m. interview, he apologetically asks for 10 more minutes. He and Swollen Members bandmate Rob the Viking were massaging some new studio tracks until early in the morning and he needs some time to wake up.

    Its a new side to Bunting (or Madchild as hes known to fans). Not the long nights, of course, but how the Vancouver-based hip-hop star is spending those hours. Two years ago he pulled the plug on a notorious drug addiction and has focused ever since on personal well being. That includes a level of honesty and commitment to his recording career, but also to those around

    him whomever it may be: a relative, an audience or a reporter 1,500 kilometres away.

    I give him 20 minutes and hes noticeably more alert and articulate.

    Im sorry, he said. I push myself

    extremely hard, but Im mature enough and wise enough to know if I need a break in the middle of the day or need to sleep in, I need to give myself permission for that.

    Bunting, on tour for his solo album Dope Sick, which debuted last August on the Canadian Billboard chart at No. 3, is slated to perform at the Surf Club Jan. 18 and 19. The solo album is almost entirely dedicated to Buntings experience with drug addiction (by which he lost millions roughly $500,000 to the OxyContin habit itself and millions more to neglected business investments.) Critics have applauded the clean and sober album for capturing a talented lyricist at the top of his game.

    Dope Sick has some dark songs, but it also has songs of celebration, of coming out into the light and climbing that mountain.

    Without question, this album has a message Bunting hopes people will hear. But he says its the last time hell reflect so deeply on his past drug addiction.

    This album is a cap on that part of my life, says Bunting.

    Its time to move forward and stop living in the past. Yeah, I have platinum records, but those are from nine years ago.

    For a person like me, and a lot of people out there, you have to keep striving for success and keep striving to be your best.

    For five years I was down for the count. When I got sober again and was myself again, it was very important for me that this journey not be over.

    I truly believe now that you have to keep making yourself happyit might be showing your skills, it might be starting a family, it might be getting that promotion or loosing 30 pounds and getting healthywhatever. The point is, what are you doing now? What are you doing to feel good about yourself today?

    Dope Sick might be laced with messages, but Bunting insists hes not a preacher and his show is not a pulpit.

    Lets not forget, the main thing is to have fun. If you come to my show its not going to be a lecture. I dont drink or do drugs anymore, but I still rock out and have a blast. The great thing is I remember it the next day.

    Swollen Members bandmate, Rob the Viking, will be appearing to help with some of the bands hits.

    The Prince Rupert Rampage knocked off the CIHL leading Smither Steelheads to start a double-header weekend

    On Saturday night the team hosted the league-leading Steelheads, who were coming off their first loss of the past two seasons, and the powerful Smithers offence struck early when Adam Devries beat Keano Wilson less than two minutes into the first. But after some back and forth play the Rampage tied things up on a wrist-shot by Ryan Stace-Smith just over halfway through the first, and Brian Tates would give Prince Rupert the lead with 3:42 to play. Prince Rupert took a 2-1 lead into the second frame.

    The two teams would prove an equal match for much of the second, until a late powerplay saw Lane Perry beat Wilson with just 12 seconds left to tie things up and set the stage for an exciting finish in front of the packed crowd.

    In the third, Wilson came up with some big saves to shut the door on the Steelheads early. Just over halfway through the period Prince Rupert found themselves on the powerplay and, with the crowd cheering on the home team, Kory Movold capitalized to put the Rampage up late in the game. While Smithers kept up the pressure, the Rampage kept shutting the door to take a 3-2 win and hand the Steelheads their second straight loss.

    On Sunday, the Houston Luckies were in town following a 6-2 loss to the Kitimat Ice Demons the previous night. Much like Saturday nights game, it was the visitors who struck first and early as

    Houstons Jaden Janzen put the puck home just 29 seconds in from a scramble in front. Prince Rupert responded though, as captain Jared Meers tipped in a Kory Movold slapshot right in front to tie things at one. With 5:58 to play there was a scrum after the whistle that saw Greg Shephard and Cole Hasell drop the gloves, and the result was a four-minute Houston powerplay that the Rampage were able to kill off. While there were plenty of great opportunities late in the period, the teams went into the second tied at one.

    In the second Houston again struck early, when a weak shot from just inside the line by Kurt Strimbold went five-hole with 17:21 to go. Prince Rupert was able to tie things up against just 69 seconds later when Movold finished off a great powerplay passing play at the side of the net. Eight minutes later it appeared as though the Rampage took the lead, but the goal was called back due to a player being in the crease, and that would prove to be a costly call as Houstons Skylar Hasell put one past Wilson right off the faceoff with 1:40 to go to give the Luckies the 3-2 lead heading into the third.

    The Rampage actually started the final frame with a two-minute powerplay, but it was Houstons Derek Dinelle fired a slapshot over the glove of Wilson just 12 seconds in to put the Luckies up by two. Movold lessened the gap with 17:23 to play with a slapshot from right in front. But a goal by Janzen with 4:09 to go put Rupert down 5-3, and with 2:28 to play coach Frank Pyde pulled the goalie only for Janzen to complete the hat trick with an empty netter to give the Luckies the 6-3 victory.

    The Rampage host the Omenica Ice on Saturday.
