>> Campfires and open burns to be restricted in Northwest

SMITHERS - Effective at noon on Friday, Aug. 19, 2016, campfires and other types of open burning will be prohibited in some areas of the Northwest Fire Centre to help prevent human-caused wildfires and protect public safety.

Anyone conducting an open burn in the affected areas must extinguish any such fire by noon on Aug. 19, 2016. This prohibition will remain in effect until Sept. 30, 2016, or until the public is otherwise notified.

Category 2 and Category 3 open burning prohibitions:

A map of the areas where Category 2 and Category 3 open burning will be prohibited is available online here.

In these areas, there is also a prohibition on the use of some fire-related equipment, including:

* fireworks, including firecrackers
* burning barrels
* sky lanterns
* air curtain burners
* exploding binary targets

Campfire bans: A map of the areas where campfires will be prohibited is available online here. In these areas, there is also a prohibition on additional fire-related equipment, including:

* tiki torches (and similar kinds of torches)
* stoves and campfire apparatuses that are not CSA or ULC approved

This fire equipment prohibition does not apply to a cooking stove that uses gas, propane or briquettes, or to a portable campfire apparatus with a CSA or ULC rating that uses briquettes, liquid fuel or gaseous fuel, so long as the height of the flame is less than 15 centimetres.

These prohibitions cover all BC Parks, Crown lands and private lands, but do not apply within the boundaries of a local government that has forest-fire prevention bylaws in place and is serviced by a fire department. Before lighting any fire, people should check with local authorities to see if any other burning restrictions are in place.

To learn more about open burning categories, fire bans and fire restrictions, please visit: http://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/safety/wildfire-status/fire-bans-and-restrictions

Anyone found in contravention of an open burning prohibition may be issued a violation ticket for $1,150, required to pay an administrative penalty of $10,000 or, if convicted in court, fined up to $100,000 and/or sentenced to one year in jail.

If the contravention causes or contributes to a wildfire, the person responsible may be ordered to pay all firefighting and associated costs.

To report a wildfire or open burning violation, call 1 800 663-5555 toll-free or *5555 on a cellphone.

>> Kitsumkalum Solid Waste Changes - Communtiy Meeting Reminder for
August 24, 2016 with Richard Inskter

Date posted: August 18, 2016

>> Skeena-Nass moves to Level 3 drought rating

Water conservation is everyone's responsibility. Skeena-Nass moves to Level 3 drought rating

Water conservation tips at home:
- Limit outdoor watering.
- Don’t water during the heat of the day or when it’s windy.
- Consider planting drought-tolerant vegetation.
- Take shorter showers.
- Don’t leave the tap running.
- Install water-efficient showerheads and toilets.

As a result of prolonged dry conditions along the coast, the Province is urging water users in the Skeena and Nass regions to voluntary reduce water use by 30%. The area is currently experiencing Level 3 hydrological drought conditions, which call for voluntary water-use reductions of 30% from all surface-water and groundwater users, including municipal, agricultural and industrial users.

>> Theft is not Petty Crime

North District RCMP have made theft a priority for 2016.

Theft is considered by some people to be petty crime, that perception is wrong! Theft costs all of us. Stores have to raise their prices to cover losses by theft. Communities have to take funding away from needed programs to replace stolen items. As individuals, we all work hard for our possessions, and no one has the right to steal them from us.

The Criminal Code breaks theft down into two categories, items valued over $5000 and items valued under $5000. Both categories are Criminal Code offences. An individual convicted of theft will have a criminal record. A theft conviction will show up on criminal record checks when applying for jobs. Individuals with criminal records may be refused entry into other countries, limiting travel options. Those are not petty consequences.

We need to encourage our youth not to commit theft, property damage, drug possession and other crimes which are considered by some to be victimless. We all want the next generation to have every opportunity possible, and not be hindered by the limitations of being in and out of the courts.

Thank you,
Cst. Josh MCNUTT, Regimental # 60328 First Nations Community Policing Terrace RCMP

KITSUMKALUM VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS' FIRETRUCK FOUND

We want to thank all the volunteers from Kitsumkalum and Terrace and surrounding area, especially the Terrace ATV & SXS Society for the recovery of Kitsumkalum’s stolen Volunteer Firefighters’ Firetruck.
We appreciate all the community support and all of those who went out of their way to look for our stolen firetruck. This firetruck means a great deal to our community of Kitsumkalum, as it has a rich history of community spirit and fire protection for community first responders.

STOLEN: KITSUMKALUM VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS' FIRETRUCK

Stolen early Sunday morning around 2:30 am August 2, 2015

If you have any information or tips leading to recovering the firetruck, please call RCMP Cst. Joshua McNutt, First Nations Community Policing, Phone 250-635-7400 or Text: 274637

The RCMP asks, if anyone finds the truck, to leave it alone and not to walk up to or touch the truck to protect any evidence on or around the stolen firetruck

VEHICLE INFORMATION: 1986 GMC 2-wheel drive mini-pumper Expired BC Plate No. 316 2MF VIN: 1GDJC34M4GJ505923

Agreement-in-Principle Signed

Kitsumkalum Chief Negotiator Alex Bolton holds the Kitsumkalum Agreement-in-Principle for all to see at the Kitsumkalum Community Hall, Tuesday August 4, 2015 for the official AIP signing ceremony.

Left to right: BC Associate Deputy Minister, Neilane Mayhew, Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation for British Columbia, John Rustad, Sim’oogit Wiidildal, Waap Lagaax, Gisbutwada, Kitsumkalum elected Chief Councillor Don Roberts, and Sim’oogit Hataxgm Lii Midiik, Gisbutwada, Kitsumkalum Chief Negotiator Alex Bolton

Celebrating our Heritage and Culture –Bringing it back to Su-sit’ Aatk

You’ll notice new street banners being installed along the entrance to Kitsumkalum IR1, to help celebrate who we are as Tsimshian and remember back to 1987 Su-sit’ Aatk crest pole raising and potlatch.

The street banners are a blend of the past and present, incorporating original artwork from the modern Su-sit’ Aatk crest pole and the present day robin logo of Kitsumkalum.

The modern crest pole that was carved in 1987 by Kalum carvers lead by Freda Diesing has all the major village crests on it to represent the whole community. Dedicated to the children, this pole signifies the future.

The other pole, a replica of an older pole, displays crests of one of the ancient families of Kitsumkalum.

We are a strong and proud galts’ap (community) and want to celebrate our heritage and culture and remind our future generations and those travelling along our community that we are Tsimshian and we have a rich culture and laxyuup that stems from the Kalum Valley, down the Skeena River to the Coast of Prince Rupert.

“I hope that the younger people will take this as a go-ahead to [encourage] them… to get into other areas of our culture, like our language, and other ways that our people had lived. We can’t go back to the old ways completely, but there are parts of it that we can use along with today’s way of living… I have to say that it’s a very proud moment for our village… Also for all the people in this area- native people and non-native people alike.” – Clifford Bolton, 1987 Interview on Su-sit’ Aatk, Article for Royal Ontario Museum

“In explaining Su-sit’ Aatk to the audience, Chief Cliff Bolton of Kitsumkalum said that Canadian Laws have made it difficult for the Tsimshian to retain their culture. This celebration was his generation’s way of telling the children that the next generation will have to be prepared to fight for the survival of their culture.” – Clifford Bolton, 1987 Interview on Su-sit’ Aatk, Article for Royal Ontario Museum

2017 will mark the 30th anniversary of Su-sit’ Aatk, and planning for a commemorative celebration is already underway to strengthen Kitsumkalum wuwaap (house groups) raise more crest poles, and to continue to accept Clifford Bolton’s challenge of future generations taking the lead in ensuring the survival of our culture.

Street banners flags made possible by the financial contributions by House of Sim-oi-ghets, Kitsumkalum Tempo Gas Bar, Kalum Ventures Ltd., Kalum Rock Quarry and Kitsumkalum Band.

>> Orange Shirt Day – EVERY CHILD MATTERS

Wear orange September 30, 2014

Tuesday September 30 is Orange Shirt Day. This day is designed to acknowledge the 150,000 school aged First Nations, Inuit and Metis children who were forcibly removed from their families and land in order for them to attend residential schools from 1830-1996.

These types of initiatives create the opportunity for meaningful discussion about the effects of residential schools, the legacy they have left behind, and the ways we can build bridges with each other for reconciliation. Orange Shirt Day is a day for survivors to be reaffirmed that they matter, as do all who have been affected, to recognize the harm the residential school system did to First Nations’ children’s self-esteem and well-being, and to affirm a commitment to ensuring that everyone around us matters. Join us in orange, to honour the children who survived, as well as remember those who didn’t.
