RIMBEY REVIEW 3

Ponoka County reeve speaks out against Bill 6 BY TREENA MIELKE A controversial bill that could cause major changes to the lifestyle of approximately 45,000 farms across the province is gaining the NDPs notoriety and not in a good way. Despite vehement opposition, Bill 6 could go through, leaving upset and angry rural Albertans in the aftermath. Bill 6, The Enhanced Protection for Farm and Ranch Workers Act, introduces changes to the occupational health and safety act, workers’ compensation act, employment standards and labour relations codes. Proposed amendments to the bill has made little difference to angry rural Albertans who have staged rallies in Red Deer and Edmonton demanding Notley hold off on passing Bill 6 until farmers have had a chance to have their say. Proposed amendments to the Bill clarify that WCB coverage would be required only for paid employees, with an option for farmers to extend coverage to unpaid workers like family members, neighbours and friends. The amendment also clarifies that occupational health and safety standards apply when a farm employs one or more paid employee at any time of year. Oneil Carlier, Minister of Agriculture and Forestry said Bill 6 brings Alberta farm and ranch safety standards in line with other provinces. “We appreciate the concerns farmers and ranchers have raised. To be clear, Bill 6 is not, in any way, going to

Leaky roof at Peter Lougheed Community Centre causes concern BY TREENA MIELKE

RECYCLE

YOUR PAPER!

A leaky roof at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre could end up costing town council big bucks, but the issue will not go away by itself. Director of community services, Cindy Bowie said the section of roof built over the curling rink lounge has been leaking. “There has been wet tiles and the carpet has been damp,� she said. Cooper Roofing were contacted, but cannot proceed with damage control immediately as the roof is wet. Bowie met with council at a special meeting Dec. 2 to discuss the issue and was told to refer the matter to the town’s en-

affect children doing their chores, participating in 4-H, or learning the family business. it does not prevent neighbours, relatives and friends from helping each other out during busy times. it does not apply to recreational activities such as riding horses or hunting on farmland,� he said. Ponoka County Reeve Paul McLauchlin, opposed to the Bill from the onset, has not softened his stance despite the amendments. “It really needs to go to committee,� he said. “There is so many unknowns. And what is the motive of ramming it through so quickly?� Speaking on behalf of Ponoka County council, McLauchlin went on to say the Bill has been developed without proper consultation with the individuals whom will be impacts the most, the family farmers. “The family farm is the backbone of Ponoka County and I, for one, have to emphasize that every family farm in Alberta is hard working, safe and wants to keep our families and workers safe.� McLauchlin, who was in Edmonton last week, said there was a huge rally in front of the legislature comprised of hundreds of angry farmers and ranchers. “I’ve never seen anything like this before.� He said he believes Wildrose opposition to the bill may be wearing down the NDPs. “Farmers are the most passionate about keeping their farms safe but they want to be consulted before they see their livelihoods change in a dramatic way,� Wildrose Shadow Agriculture minister Rick Strankman said. “No one cares more about safety on farms than the families

gineers, Tagish Engineers from Red Deer. Bowie said she is hoping to meet with Tagish before Christmas and wants to get an estimate on replacing the entire roof as well as the section that is leaking. “We need to discuss what we can do and what is the best possible solution,� she said. She noted the community centre is around 30 years old and renovations to the roof are definitely needed.

who run them, they are the experts, they should be in the driver’s seat. Instead, bureaucrats and ministers, who have clearly lost the trust of farmers, continue to treat them as second-class citizens.� In a letter to Lori Sigurdson, minister of jobs, skills, training and labour, Al Kemmere, president of the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts & Counties asks that more time be given to the consultation process. In order to tailor regulations to the nuances of the agriculture industry and ensure that farmers are not unfairly burdened by a one-size fits all legislation, a slower process in which all voices are heard and all opinions considered is necessary so that other unintended consequences’ can be addressed, he said. He added that the AAMDC and agriculture services board would be would be willing to work with the government to help draft regulations.

Treena Mielke On The Other Side It was about 33 below and the young man’s fingers were icy cold inside his threadbare gloves, but still he kept looking. The perfect Christmas tree. There had to be one somewhere on this snowy Christmas tree lot in downtown Edmonton.

tree, the nicest one we’ve ever had.” And they would smile and mutter under their breath to each other, “that’s what mom always says.” “And so it must be true,” I would finish for them. And so the children came and the children left and still Christmas remained, undeniable, regular, like clockwork, a red letter calendar day in a sometimes bleak and dreary month. Then one year the unthinkable happened. We bought an artificial tree. This year, I lugged the artificial tree upstairs from its secret hiding place under the stairs and two of my grandsons helped me put it together. And as I pulled out the decorations, gently holding each sacred ornament in my hand like it was a

raw egg with a vulnerable and fragile shell, I explained to the boys what each one represented. “Here is the cloth ball your mom made me. Look how carefully she put it all together,” I said, reverently. “And this, this is the ball your Auntie Darcie made when she was younger than you. Look at that, it still has her name on it, sort of.” And this; Uncle Devin made this when he was only five-years-old. I hold up his paper cow proudly.” The boys look blankly at my treasures. Somehow, I could tell they were not even a tiny bit impressed. Finally, I hold up wooden mitts their mom and I had crafted together years ago. The mitts have tiny bells attached. “Do the bells work?” they ask, hopefully. “No,” I said, the bells do not work.

That’s not the point.” “Grandma, can we have more juice?” they ask, finally. I laugh and hug their precious little selves to me and obligingly pour them more juice; the bubbly kind that goes with tree decorating along with caramel popcorn. And as they hang most of the balls on one branch because that is the one they can reach and I notice that the garland goes only as high as two little boys can reach and the Christmas angel, perched grandly at the top, is slightly off kilter, I feel all ridiculously happy and proud. And I know, without a doubt, that once again I can claim ownership of the perfect Christmas tree. I am truly blessed. It happens every year, just like magic. Just like Christmas!

Political dysphoria triggered by controversial Bill 6

tree for their inspection. Finally, he held one up and it turned out it was not just a tree. It was the perfect tree. His wife smiled and nodded. “That’s it,” she mouthed. “You got it.” And so it came to be that they brought the perfect tree home to their tiny one-bedroom apartment where they lived in a jumble of school books, diapers, baby bottles, and wild and crazy aspirations about what they were going to be when they all grew up. First baby, first Christmas, second year NAIT student! In honour of that very first Christmas tree, I said, in a tone belonging to someone young and naïve, that we would always have a real tree, and it would always be perfect. And so, the years passed and the children became very used to hearing me say every Christmas, “this is the perfect Christmas

Alberta is in this weird place right now. We have a New Democratic provincial government, a Liberal federal government, moreover, Albertans voted in the past federal election to keep Conservative MPs in office. There is political disparity within our province. I’m barely a columnist and will never consider myself as a po-

litical scientist, but I certainly can hold an opinion on Alberta’s political dysphoria. It is political unrest, like the clutter Alberta finds itself within now, that makes the media fun to follow when proposed bills for legislation enter the public boxing arena. Bill 6, or bill six six six as I’ve heard it called, is producing a lot of energy in rural Alberta. It would be curious to suggest that maybe the heat that bill six is generating is a projection of the political dissatisfaction Alberta’s citizens may be experiencing. We could just be superficially looking for something to be mad at rather than addressing the source of our actual frustrations. Regardless, I don’t believe anyone (politicians

or lawmakers) are out to maliciously attack the rural lifestyle owned by many proud Albertans. If harm to a worker or family member can be prevented with the implementation of training or updated equipment— how can that be a bad thing? We all want to reap the benefits of a successful year of agriculture without having to suffer any losses. Three young girls died in an accident on a farm in Alberta earlier this year. No amount of bureaucratic paper work is going to bring those children back to their families. And no amount of bureaucratic paper work is going to shield farm hands or family members from sustaining injuries while working on a farm. But Bill 6 can protect the fi-

nancial needs of the families of the injured farm hands. If dad has a broken leg and can’t work in Mr. Farmer’s field, then dad can’t support his family— unless I’m missing something or over simplifying. The political friction that Bill 6 is generating is the democratic system in process. This is a good thing. Our government has no choice but to listen to our voices; we have the power and the means to see that any new piece of legislation is meeting our needs as citizens of Alberta. I’m not suggesting Bill 6 literature needs to be painted on the sides of farmyard barns; and I’m not suggesting that the paperwork Bill 6 is printed on gets sent for shredding in the rotary thresher of a combine. Let’s figure out Bill 6 and

maybe consider some adjustments to a lifestyle that can protect the children growing up on a farm (or the farmhands working the land). I worked as a mechanic for a lot of years. In some ways choosing to work as a mechanic is very much a lifestyle choice. At the end of the day I had oil stains on my clothing, grit under my finger nails, busted knuckles, and a desire to go back tomorrow and twist wrenches all over again. In the midst of my career my arm started to hurt and I could barely clutch a wrench. I went to a therapist and got treated for tendentious. I didn’t want a payoff, I just wanted my arm fixed—WCB got me back on the tools and my chosen lifestyle wasn’t threatened.

Family Activities at Agrim Centre in Rimbey Just seven months after openings its doors, the Agrim Centre in Rimbey has become a hub of community activity. A prime example of that takes place December 11 and 12, with a double header of farm and rodeo fun and education. On December 11, hundreds of local elementary students will visit the Agrim Centre for the first Ag for Life Rural and Farm Safety Day. “We’ve had this in the works for months,” explains Rimbey Ag Society President Tim Edge. “We want to support families in agriculture, and show what this building can do for the community.” Partnering with the Alberta based Ag for Life organization, the Rural and Farm Safety Day will provide education with an interactive line-up of simulators, activities and demonstrations for students. The participants will learn about topics like animal, ATV, water, powerline, grain and large equipment safety. Ag for Life Founders, safety experts, local businesses and volunteers will also lend a hand. “We’re excited to partner with the Rimbey Community to deliver this rural and farm safety day. Ag for Life delivers rural and farm safety days across the province to educate children and youth on how to stay safe,” marketing and communications coordinator for Ag for Life, Kaley Sebgoer said. “We feel it’s critical to have these youngsters develop and practice the skills to keep themselves and their families safe and healthy on their farms,” added Edge. Then on December 12, the popular Ultimate Cowboy event brings a brand new qualifying rodeo to the Agrim Centre. “The Ultimate Cowboy concept has grown so much that we have more people who want to compete in our New Year’s Eve event than we have room,” says Ultimate Cowboy founder Scott Wyzykoski. “So we’re introducing the Rimbey UC5 Qualifier this year, to let some of the younger competitors have a shot at being part of our showcase event.” The Ultimate Cowboy is into its fifth year of searching for true versatile cowboy talent, by having contestants compete in all the rodeo disciplines. “They have to go outside their comfort zones, but you’ll be amazed to see how well many of these cowboys do at events they don’t regularly compete in. Although it does take a little cowboy courage and grit, ” Wyzykoski adds. The Rimbey roster includes such competitors as Canada’s newly crowned All-Around Champion Josh Harden of Big Valley. Local favorites like Branden Dillman of Rocky will be hunting for a qualifying spot, but so will Montana’s LeRoy Eash, who’s a bronc riding champion with the World Class Bucking Horse Association. As well, Austin Stewart is coming up from North Carolina to throw his hat in the ring. He’s a fifth generation cowboy, entertainer and trick roper. The competition will be keen for the four qualifying spots available for the Ultimate Cowboy V, to be held December 31st in Calgary. The rodeo action begins at 7 pm December 12, and tickets are available at the door. “Our building is so versatile and this weekend’s lineup really demonstrates that,” noted Edge. “We’ve also just added 65 heated box stalls to the Agrim Centre. So we’re excited about new visitors, from farm kids to rodeo fans, visiting our facility.” For more information: Tim Edge 403-354-6730 or www.agrim.ca Scott Wyzykoski 403-597-7459 or www.ultimatecowboy.ca (updates also on Facebook and Twitter)

Spartans bring home silver from provincials BY TREENA MIELKE Rimbey High School Spartans Football team has ended its season with a silver medal. Coach Bill Bramfield said he is very pleased and proud of the team and believes they have continued to improve throughout the year. The Rimbey team suffered a 46-28 loss at the hands of St. Joseph Collegiate from Brooks in Edmonton during the provincials last weekend. “That’s the way it goes,” said Bramfield. “It wasn’t our best game and Brooks is a strong team.”

However, the coach is quick to point out his Rimbey team was a strong contender throughout the season and a force to be reckoned with. “From the beginning to the end of the season, they did better each week. As the year went on, they just got stronger and stronger.” Bramfield said the second place finish is something to be proud of. “We shouldn’t be disappointed with a second place finish,” he said. “We did well and we need to remember the other teams show up to win, as well. “And”, he added, optimistically, “there’s always next year.”

Snow removal policy now in effect BY TREENA MIELKE The above average temperatures experienced this winter has kept problems with snow removal to a minimum, however, town officials are at the ready should a snowfall occur. Rick Schmidt, director of

public works said a snow removal policy is now in effect. The terms of the policy state it is the responsibility of the property owner to remove snow from adjacent sidewalks unless the snow was left there by snow removal crews. The snow is to

be shoveled to the curb edge of the sidewalk and will be removed by the town. Snow is not to be pushed onto roadways or town property. About half a block of sidewalk by the swimming pool where a town’s storm swale is located will, however, be cleaned by town crews as

it is used extensively by school students. The first priority of public works after a snowfall will be to ensure routes are cleared so emergency vehicles can access adjacent neighbourhoods through the shortest routes possible. Snow will be removed off 50 Ave. between 47th and 53rd streets and the windrow will go in the middle of the road to be hauled away during the evening when less traffic will be experienced. Residential routes are to be cleaned within 120 hours of the end of a snowfall of 15 centimetres or more. Back alleys will be cleaned when rutting or drifting occurs or when they have become impassable due to accumulated snowfall. On roadways with boulevards on both sides and no sidewalks on either side, snow windrows shall be plowed and stored on either or both boulevards. As road conditions become slippery, abrasive and/or melting agents may be applied to dangerous areas such as hills, curves and intersections. Contractors hired by individuals for snow removal will have access to the town’s snow storage site to be used at their own risk. There will be no charge. However, contractors must phone ahead to make arrangements and must have commercial equipment and carry the proper insurance.

BY JUNE NORVILA There were 28 teams, with many who enter year after year, entered in the fourevent Bentley Farmer’s Bonspiel, the first ‘spiel of the season hosted by Bentley. It all started off on the evening of Monday, November 23. A huge snowstorm and bad roads made it challenging for some teams to get to their first game, but melting conditions on Saturday, November 28 meant all could enjoy the

banquet and dance in the Bentley Ag Centre. All games were eight ends and prizes were pick-a -prize purchased by the club. Coming out undefeated in the ‘A’ event was the Ponoka Fertilizer team of skip Dan Lea, third Eric Bloomquist, second Rick Massing, and lead Tammy Jones. They defeated the John Stol team easily after seven ends. The Allen Sanford team placed third and Kevin Woolsey fourth. Continued on A13

RHS girls team make it to semi-finals in provincials BY TREENA MIELKE The Rimbey High School Spartans senior girls volleyball team finished fourth at provincials, after losing to F. P. Walshe from Fort Macleod in the third game of a best of three semi final challenge held at Vauxhall last weekend. Coach Tom Shukin is proud of the girls. “We were hoping to finish in the top six and we finished in the top four,” he said. “That’s pretty great for us.” Prior to going to provincials the vol-

leyball team hosted the 2A Central Zone play-downs, defeating St. Dominic School from Rocky Mountain House in the zone final. The win marked the girls’ first banner win since 1987. “Our goal was to get to provincials and we did that,” said Shukin. Finishing in fourth place was pretty great.” He noted there are 110 2A schools in the province with volleyball teams and to finish fourth is truly impressive. “It’s quite an accomplishment,” he said.

BY TREENA MIELKE With Christmas just around the corner, volunteers at the Rimbey Food Bank are stepping up their efforts to ensure everyone enjoys a special holiday season. FCSS executive director Peggy Makofka said the public is being most generous and donations are plentiful, but, on the downside of the equation, the need is greater this year. Makofka noted that 87 families were helped through the food bank this year, and of those families 47 were new clients. Last year 45 hampers were prepared and sent out and this year FCSS, along with a group of volunteers, are looking at preparing 75. As of Dec. 1, applications were accepted at the FCSS office and as of Dec. 2, 12 had already been submitted. Makofka is determined to meet the challenge that more applications presents and will combine her efforts with those of staff and volunteers to ensure no one in need will be left out. “We will use some of our savings if necessary,” she said. “We have such a small window of time to pull it off, but we will do our best.” Hampers may have to be rationed, but Makofka is hopeful donations will continue to pour in, so that measure won’t be necessary. She notes that 80 per cent of the donations for the food bank come during November and December and is expecting the public to continue to be generous. Foods containing protein, canned meats, beans, canned prepared meals, peanut butter and cheese whiz as well as staples such as flour and sugar are always welcome, she said. Donations may be made at some businesses around town and at the FCSS office located in the provincial building which is south of the Peter Lougheed Community Centre. Hampers which go out at Christmas contain food including turkey and all the trimmings suitable for a Christmas meal as well as enough food to last for about a week. The hampers also include toys and treats for the children.

Elmer will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his boys: Gary (Brenda) of Bluffton; Bill (Starla) of Breton; Larry (Jeanie) of Bluffton; and Glen (Colleen) also of Bluffton; as well as many treasured grandchildren and great grandchildren. He will also be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his sister, Lorene Johnson; and his brother, Marvin (Jean) Thebeau, all of Rimbey; in addition to numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and many cherished friends. Elmer was predeceased by his parents, Elie and Edna; his three brothers: Leonard, Ronald, and Donald; and two sisters, Leona and Lorna.

God looked around His garden and He found an empty place. He then looked down upon the Earth, and saw your tired face. He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, He knew that you were in pain. He knew that you would never get well on Earth again. He saw the road, was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb So He closed your weary eyelids, and whispered “Peace be Thine” It broke my heart to lose you, but you didn’t go alone For part of me went with you, the day God called you home. Always remembered by your loving wife, Ruth

The weather was unseasonably warm and Santa and the Grinch were kept busy with a good crowd that attended Santa Night held at Pas Ka Poo Park last Friday. Morriah Rudnik Photo

Holiday giving expected to hit $5 billion This holiday season about 60 per cent of Canadian adults are expected to donate approximately $5 billion between now and the end of the year, according to Imagine Canada. This annual tide of generosity is essential to thousands of charities and the communities they serve. According to Statistics Canada, Canadians give just under $13 billion annually to charities and nonprofits, meaning that approximately 40% of all donations take place in the last six weeks of the year. Statistics Canada identifies “compassion for those in need” as the top reason Canadians donate (89%), followed by “personally believe in a cause” (85 per cent) and “contribute

to our communities” (79 per cent). Six-in-ten (61 per cent) are motivated by being personally affected by the cause. These motivations underscore the holiday season’s importance as an opportunity for caring individuals to strengthen their communities in ways that are important to them. “Holiday giving is crucial to strengthening our social fabric,” says Bruce MacDonald, president and CEO of Imagine Canada. “By taking a more strategic approach to giving, people can make their gift more meaningful and enhance the satisfaction that comes from making a highly personalized contribution to helping others and transforming communities.” Here are Imagine

Canada’s top five suggested strategies for holiday giving: 1. Align your gift with your passion: When making a donation, consider the sort of world you want to build. Ally yourself with charitable organizations that reflect your ideals and invest in the future you want to see unfold. Charities welcome dialogue, so connect and communicate. Even better, volunteer. 2. Model giving for your children, peers: nothing builds a child or teenager’s character like helping people in need. By engaging your children and even peers in your philanthropic activities and priorities, you pay forward the spirit of giving and generate long-term momentum for support of

charities. Research shows clearly that many people give because philanthropy was modelled for them by their parents. Inspiring young people to give back is fundamental to building strong, caring communities. 3. Focus on impact, not overhead: Evaluating or ranking a charity solely on how much it spends on overhead can be misleading. The bottom line on effectiveness is what the organization accomplishes, not necessarily what it spends on infrastructure or fundraising. Wise spending and being accountable and transparent are important criteria, but we need to remember that without investment, services would be impossible to deliver – real impact requires real investment.

4. Be flexible about donation amounts: Research shows that donations have been generally flat for the past five years. This is a serious challenge because costs facing charities continue to grow. People begin supporting charities in their youth even if they don’t have a lot of resources, but their giving often does not to grow along with their income. Part of a sound giving strategy is being flexible about the size of your gift and basing the amount on what you can afford. 5. Leadership matters: A charity’s success is always linked to how well it is led and managed. Strong leadership, efficient administration and good governance are key qualities to look for when evaluating a charity. One important

sign of sound management is accreditation by a third party. Some are eligible for accreditation for a specific type of work, such as health care, but all charities can be accredited through Imagine Canada’s Standards Program. This initiative involves rigorous peer review of board governance, financial accountability and transparency, fundraising, staff management and volunteer involvement. Although the program is relatively new, 160 charities display this program’s Trustmark and many more are going through the process. Visit imaginecanada.ca for a complete listing of accredited charities along with a comprehensive Guide to Giving to help with charitable decision making.
