Advanced polling stations will be held in Camrose on April 19, 20 and 21 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, 570348 Avenue. Use the front 48 Avenue entrance.

A person can only have one place of ordinary residence.

Voters must be at least 18, a Canadian citizen and have lived in Alberta for at least six months. You can find out where you vote by going to the Where Do I Vote web site, or by calling the Voter Information Centre at 1-877-4228683 (toll-free outside of Edmonton).

Wetaskiwin-Camrose candidates (left to right) Mike Donnelly, Bruce Hinkley, Trevor Miller and Verlyn Olson. By Dan Jensen

Wetaskiwin-Camrose PC candidate Verlyn Olson, Wildrose Alliance candidate Trevor Miller, NDP candidate Bruce Hinkley and EverGreen Party candidate Mike Donnelly had a chance to share their stance on the issues facing Albertans in a well-attended provincial election candidates' forum at the Norsemen Inn April 11. The candidates were given five minutes to make opening remarks, after which they took turns answering questions from the floor. First up was Donnelly, who asked why so many people are seeking health services outside the region. "I would like to find out why we only have a limited choice of local clinics and why doctors who are seeking to open a practice here are unable to obtain hospital privileges. Donnelly noted that if the privatization of health care is allowed, funding for public health care will drop and wait lists will be prioritized in favour of the wealthy. Donnelly said he has recently found that natural remedies are going to be regulated. "How would you like to have to see a doctor to have to be prescribed vitamin C and this vitamin being produced synthetically? We already lack the ability to see a doctor in a timely manner, and taking away the options of natural remedies and tying up doctors even more will just increase those times. We have to look at what is causing an unhealthy environment and address the concerns promptly. Everything from smart metres to water purification." Donnelly also expressed a need to look at the options for long term care and home care for our seniors. "We are seeing, too often, seniors having to be taken away from their spouses or family to have individualized treatments. We need to increase funding for home care with assisted living, independent living and long term care facilities. Personally, I would like to see some form of grants being given to families that wish to take care of their mothers and fathers at home,

allowing those that wish to do so funds to make modifications to their homes." Going to the other end of the age spectrum, Donnelly said there is a need to address the number of things that young people are able to do outside the home. "I have talked to quite a few teenagers in our community and they feel the need to have a local drop-in centre, with most shying away from the religious centres that are available, since they want to have a relaxed atmosphere just to hang out." Donnelly said as a participatory Party, EverGreen would be out in the community asking about the concerns of residents. "Participatory democracy strives to create opportunities for all members of the population to make meaningful contributions to democracy making, and seeks to broaden the range of people who have access to such opportunities. Big government supports large contributors. The function of government is not to govern the people but to carry out the collective intention of the people and accomplish in unity what one or a few members cannot do alone." Donnelly said with increased economic incentives for sustainable technologies, government can localize basic economic activities, create diverse local jobs and help with the development of more socially environmental business practices. "By critically examining what aspects of the business can be modified, business owners can manage climate change risk, save money, attract new employees and customers and raise their profile in the community. Greening the economy could create over 100,000 new jobs in Alberta by 2020." Hinkley said the time has come in Alberta for new leadership, new ideas and new policies. "Albertans are fed up with a government that is characterized by broken promises, outrageous scandals with taxpayer money, mismanagement of that taxpayer money, high electricity prices and a business plan that is broken and needs to be changed. Hinkley said the New Democratics will impose a fair oil roy-

alty system, fight for affordable public health care, and regulate the rates charged by gas and power companies. "The ten-year experiment with de-regulation is over," he said. "It is time that we got fair utility prices." Donnelly said the NDP would reduce small taxes for small businesses by a third. "You can see what is happening in rural Alberta, the loss of businesses, the loss of communities, because there is no economic development plan. Small businesses deserve a break." Donnelly said the New Democrats would stabilize funding for education, create jobs that are sustainable, diversified and green, and assist seniors in all ways. "The New Democrats will fight for the prosperity of everyone, not just the CEOs that are making the millions of dollars in bonus pay." Miller expressed the view that the election will be a turning point for Alberta. "We have had the same government for over 40 years and we are witnessing the effects of having a government go unchallenged so long. The PC government has resorted to muzzling its local representatives, is wasting billions of dollars on misguided priorities and has posted five straight deficit budgets, something that used to be illegal in this province." Miller said the Wildrose Alliance plans to change the culture of entitlement and bring transparency to the process of governance. He added that MLAs would have to answer to their constituents, and could be recalled if they are not doing what they were elected to do. "If I am given the honour to be elected as your MLA the interests of my constituents will come first. I would bring up local issues that matter the most and fight for a community every day." Miller said the Wildrose would get the province's financial house in order and prioritize spending on those things – education, health care and seniors – that matter the most to Albertans. "We will end the government bullying and intimidation that exists in our health care

system, and we will work to improve that system by shortening long waiting times. Also, we want to implement a protection of health care guarantee that commits the government to increasing the number of publicly ensured health care procedures and treatments performed in Alberta until the clinically acceptable wait time benchmarks established by the Canadian Wait Time Alliances are guaranteed. Olson said while there are still plenty of challenges ahead, he considers Alberta to be the best place in the world in which to live. "We have great natural resources that the whole world wants, whether it is agricultural products, oil and gas or lumber. We have a young educated population, we have a stable democracy, we have low taxes, we have very low unemployment." Olson said the rapid growth of the province since 2007 is one of the reasons the Alberta government has been scrambling to catch up with infrastructure and running deficit budgets. "We are averaging the addition of a population the size of the city of Red Deer and all those people who move to Alberta don't come with their hospitals and schools and other infrastructure." Olson said he is happy with the way Alberta has weathered the world-wide recession. "Although things have been kind of tough the last few years we feel very well positioned in Alberta for what is coming next." Olson discarded claims that the Party of which he is part is old and tired and in need of being replaced, noting there were 31 new MLAs elected in the last election, including himself and Premier Redford. "One of the things she (Premier Redford) did with her first cabinet was appoint four ministers, side by side, from this region, which is unprecedented. We have as many ministers in this region as the city of Edmonton has and the city of Calgary has." The forum was sponsored by the Camrose Chamber of Commerce, Alberta Teachers' Association and the Battle River School Division.

Forum moderator Vivianne Grue gives the candidates instructions before they began their presentations. By Dan Jensen

The Wetaskiwin-Camrose candidates shared their thoughts on education during an election forum at the Norsemen Inn April 11. Bruce Hinkley, from the NDP, said he is hearing conflicting messages from the government on how many new schools are going to be built in the province. "The Minister of Education said before the election there were going to be 400 schools built, and I was hey, great. However, just a couple of months ago, it came out that Ms. Redford is going to build only 70 schools. The Minister and the Premier are not on the same page." Hinkley said the fact that small schools are being forced to close raises the question of whether the government believes our kids are important. "The New Democrats are saying that we have to stop school closures. There are three schools in Battle River that are possibly going to be closed because of insufficient funding, and there are three schools that are going to be closed in the County of Wetaskiwin because of insufficient funding." Hinkley said he is prepared to work on a new formula that provides stable funding for education. He feels that school instructional fees should be prohibited, and paid for by the general Alberta taxpayer. Hinkley believes the tuitions of post secondary students should be cut ten per cent and frozen, and that the government should forgive their student loans to the extent of $1,000 per year. He said numbers from the Students' Association of Canada indicate that post secondary students have an average debt of $25,000 because of the present funding system. EverGreen Party's Mike Donnelly said giving students the education they need while they are young will allow them to go on to a university or other postsecondary institution. He also feels the government should give more of the education tax that it collects back to communities. Donnelly said funding for private schools needs to be phased

out and that special needs students should have separate classes. He would like to reduce university tuition rates to year 2000 levels and tie the tuition rates to inflation. Verlyn Olson, from the PC Party, said that contrary to what some are suggesting, municipalities are not being asked to pay for the increased education funding. He added that education is one of the most important things in the government budget. "It is one of the most important things in our government policy. Seventy-five per cent of our budget is going into what we call people programs, which includes health, human services and education." Olson said the PC Party recognizes education as an essential building block for a diversified economy. "A diverse economy is where we all want to get and I think everyone would agree here that we need to reduce our reliance on one or two or three natural resources. We need to have a more complex economy and we achieve that through education." Trevor Miller said the Wildrose Alliance Party is committed to ensuring Alberta's children are ready to be leaders in their global economy. "A strong education system is essential to Alberta's future. There are challenges we face in a growing province but the Wildrose is committed to ensuring Alberta's children are ready to be leaders in their global economy." Miller said Wildrose will ensure that local school boards have the money and authority needed to hire more teachers by providing them (boards) with stable and predictable long term funding, and would grant them the authority to negotiate teacher salaries at the local level. Miller added that the Wildrose would remove politics from any discussion in determining where to build new schools. "Money for new schools will be allocated using an objective funding formula that accounts for community and student growth rates, not based on political clout of politicians that are representing you."

What the politicians didn’t tell you last time They planned to raise their pay 30% as soon as the election was over. ✓ Wildrose will eliminate committee pay, cut cabinet pay 30% and MLA severance pay 65%. $16 billion in new power lines to export so much electricity it will triple your monthly power bill (again). ✓ Wildrose will save Albertans billions by cancelling unnecessary power lines. A dictatorial health care “superboard”, a bureaucratic monstrosity. ✓ Wildrose will restore local authority and implement a proven European method to eliminate waiting lists. They planned to take away your property rights. ✓ Wildrose will guarantee full, fair and prompt compensation to affected landowners.

So what aren’t they telling you about this time?

Tannas wants to change the Senate's function By Murray Green

Election Day in Alberta will not only decide the next government in this province, but voters may be determining who will be representing them in Ottawa. Scott Tannas, president and CEO of the Western Financial Group that has an office in Camrose, is one of 13 Albertans running for the elected position in the Senate. The Prime Minister has the final say in appointing the Senate positions. "Throughout my travels to rural Alberta, I'm finding about 95 per cent of the people don't know or understand the Senate election," said Scott, during his stop in Camrose on April 13. "That has been consistent all across the province. I'm getting out to about 50 communities to let people know that they can vote for a senator as well. There is nothing worse than receiving a ballot and not knowing anything about it. In the last senate election, in 2004, about 30 per cent of the votes were destroyed. People turned them in blank because they didn't know who to vote for."

Scott started Western Financial Group in one small office and has turned it into a successful company with 20 offices throughout western Canada. "I'm a small town guy, so it is really important for me to connect with the rural communities. I was born and raised in High River and now have a wife and four children. I was lucky to be able to build a company from scratch and they are successful in the smaller rural communities." Scott's business was built from the ground up by listening to the needs of his clients. He wants to do the same in the Senate. "For me, it felt so much more comfortable of the idea of engaging people in rural communities. That has been our strategy. We had a vision and worked hard towards the future. That skill is needed for the Senate. We need the Senate to step up. Today the Canadian Senate is useless. I want to be part of an active Senate that will be able to tackle big issues. I want to focus on problems and study things to come up with solu-

tions on topics such as our role in Afghanistan, Native issues, water and the environment. When the baby boomers retire, we are going to need skilled workers. We need to find the right solutions. I think politicians would be relieved if we took some of those Canadian issues away from them. We have the time to study them and come up with good solutions." Scott is always impressed with Camrose. "I've been here for business with the Camrose office, as well as for hockey tournaments. I've been struck with the beauty of the city. The park-like setting and green space is great. There are very few towns or cities that have a well thought out and nice looking system like Camrose. The other thing I'm struck by is the business activity. It is always busy in Camrose and it is growing," said Scott. The election will be held on April 23 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and the advanced polling stations will be held in Camrose on April 19, 20 and 21 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Camrose branch of the

Pitch In; Pitch Out Mayor Marshall Chalmers has declared that next week, April 23 to 28, National Pitch-In Week will be observed in Camrose. During that week, local residents will be encouraged to pick up rubbish of any kind, wherever we see it, and pitch it into garbage bags, or containers of other kinds, for disposal in appropriate places or reusing or recycling. Our community has an enviable reputation for keeping our yards, boulevards, streets and parks neat and tidy most of the time, thanks to the volunteer cooperation of the vast majority of citizens plus the supportive policies of municipal councils in the area. It is appropriate to mention specifically the help of 4-H clubs everywhere, who, for many, many years have been responsible for highway clean-up throughout the province. The overall benefit has been the fact that this community has been seen by others as a good place to live, which has attracted businesses, institutions and industry causing us to continue to grow with the ability to provide ever more amenities. Residents are also responsible for conditions inside the homes they inhabit and there is not much outside interference unless conditions have negative effects on neighbours – like vermin, odours, noise, safety and the like. We tend to believe that a neat, tidy and well-cared-for exterior and yard is indicative of immaculate housekeeping inside – which is good, very good because it gives one a feeling of well-being to be surrounded by orderliness and beauty. Contributing most to one’s sense of personal wellbeing is the ability to get rid of negative clutter in one’s mind – clutter like hate, anger, envy, jealousy, mistrust, unforgiveness. When such destructive ‘garbage’ is put out of mind, there is space to see and appreciate the good in people and the beauty in the world around us. To pitch out the clutter in one’s mind is easier said than done, however, there are tips that help to make it possible. There are strengths and weaknesses in every individual; look for the good in everyone. Count your blessings; count what you have rather than dwell on what you lack. Anger is not itself bad but it is often badly handled resulting in even more distress; it is possible to learn to handle it well, so do it. Learn to forgive; to be unforgiving is to keep turning a sword in a wound and forever prevent its healing. Let’s make next week, and every week, a time to pick up garbage wherever we see it and pitch it into bags and containers for reuse and recycling; do spring cleaning in our homes and yards, and pitch out of our minds all thoughts destructive to a sense of well-being and peace.

In the Friday, April 6/2012 Edmonton Sun, Lorne Gunter's column was titled, "Alberta's first NDP premier" In his column, Lorne talks about last month when the Tories got their budget passed on the eve of the election call. The Premier stated that they had to get their budget passed before the Election so us Albertans can see what her government was up to. She told us that they wanted to be transparent. Well, that noble commitment to transparency lasted for about 10 days. One day on the election trail, the premier had pledged an extra 2.4 billion dollars for

school construction spending over a period of four years. Well, surprise, surprise. That was not in the last month's budget! This announcement was made after the Wildrose had pledged to return 20% of any surplus to us Albertans in a form of an energy dividend cheque. It is also very interesting to note that not too long ago, the Education minister told Albertans that there is no way the government could afford all the new schools the province needed without creative financing such as the cost of their construction over the new schools useful lives. Now it seems like the government has made a 180 degree turn from what they first said to now offering 50 new schools and 70 renovated ones. The question that I would like to ask is will this promise be fulfilled or is it just another promise the Premier will use to get re-elected. Where will the Premier find the construction crews to complete the 120 new infrastructure projects. We can safely say 260 projects if we include the 140 family health clinics that she promised on another day of promising. I believe that governments should be fair. I believe that

the government should return the tax dollars to the tax payer. However, I believe that in her mind, she and her government will always be the better judges of what should be done with any excess. To me, that sounds a lot like socialism. This is just another example of how our government sits just left of the centre just next to where our NDP party sits. According to Gunter, he has wrote, "If I were the real NDP leader, Brian Mason, I'll be thinking of suing Redford for trademark infringement." I personally agree with him on his view. Will the premier fulfill her promise if Albertans fall for her empty promises. In my opinion, this promise will be shelved along side of the other promises that she flip flopped on after she became premier. I must also ask, why should we vote in a NDP government when we already have one that is painted as blue Conservatives. On election day, it is up to very voter to vote and make sure that we have the right government in place to secure our future. If not, we might just elect Alberta's first NDP premier back into office Lorne Vanderwoude Camrose

Chinook Country receives tourism award

Presenting the Growing Rural Tourism Rural Champion Award to Chinook Country Tourist Association representative Colleen Bridges were: (left to right) Tourism Parks and Recreation Minister Jack Hayden, Travel Alberta Chief Executive Officer Bruce Okabe, CRE General Manager Wynn McLean and Growing Rural Tourism coordinator Jennifer Filip. By Dan Jensen

A cluster development and tourism strategy project that gives tourism operators the means to increase their own profitability by understanding potential customers has earned the Chinook Country Tourist Association the 2012 Growing Rural Tourism Rural Champion Award. Minister of Tourism Parks and Recreation Jack Hayden presented the award to Chinook Country Tourist Association marketing projects specialist Colleen Bridges at the CRE April 3. "This award means a lot coming from the people in the industry," said Bridges. "We have worked really hard on the project and we still have a lot of steps to go."

The cluster development and tourism strategy project was developed by the Chinook Country Tourist Association using a new research-based tool prepared by the Canadian Tourism Commission called the Explorer Quotient, which explains how tourism operators can align marketing efforts to better reach customers. "It brings all our members together and it helps us work in a collaborative environment creating packages that are appealing to certain types of travellers who are interested in what we have in our region in southeast Alberta," said Bridges. "They (members) have been so willing to give up time away from their operations, hotels and businesses to learn about

the research, learn how to market their businesses, learn how to tell stories and learn how to price. "Without the operators this project wouldn't be anything." The tourist association has recently developed a new website housing the online booking engine "We just launched it last month and we had a flurry of sales over the last few weeks," said Bridges. Chinook Country, as a region, borders British Columbia and Montana, and extends north to the Calgary city limits. It follows the Bow River east and includes Writing on Stone Provincial Park.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER April 17, 2012


Keep health public By Dan Jensen

Wetaskiwin-Camrose PC candidate Verlyn Olson doesn't want Albertans too stirred up over the issue of private versus public health care. Olson told voters at the provincial candidates' forum at the Norsemen Inn last week that there is already some health care that is provided by private organizations. "We (the Progressive Conservatives) support publicly funded health care and we support the Canada Health Act, but think of the Bethany Group. I was on the board of the Bethany Group. You would consider that a private organization. The doctors in this province run clinics. They are private and they are providing health care." Wildrose candidate Trevor Miller said the health care system is broken and needs to be fixed if we want to see better results. "Reforming health care will take honest, principled leadership. Currently Alberta spends more money on health care than any other province. It seems the more money we spend the worse the problem becomes." Miller said the Wildrose is committed to public health care that will uphold the principles of the Canada Health Act – a public insurance that is publicly funded and publicly administered, universality, comprehensiveness, affordability and accessibility. Also, he said the Wildrose would allow funding to follow the patient.

"The reason is because under the current system when a patient shows up to a health care facility they are seen as a cost to our existing budget. If the funding follows the patient they will be seen as a customer and they will receive better care." NDP candidate Bruce Hinkley said opening the door to private health care will create problems like those in the United States, where 700,000 families had to declare bankruptcy last year because they couldn't pay their medical costs. "Why would we even want that? I am so glad that all the parties are agreeing to no privatization. Do not let anybody convince you that opening the door a little bit is a good thing because once they have the foot in the door it is going to go and then you are going to be paying full tilt. Public health care is the only way to go. The hospitals are for all Albertans, not just the rich." EverGreen candidate Mike Donnelly said Albertans can expect higher taxes if private health care is allowed. "The government is going to be putting money into the private health care system and taking it out of the public health care system. We are going to suffer from longer wait times in hospitals and you are going to see our doctors less available for us and for our own needs. We have to take care of the average person who can't afford things like private health care insurance and aren't going to be subsidized for it."

Olson disturbed by what he says is fear mongering By Dan Jensen

Wetaskiwin-Camrose PC candidate Verlyn Olson is disturbed with what he feels is fear mongering when it comes to analyzing Alberta's property rights legislation. Olson voiced the view at a candidates' forum last week that Bills 36, 19, 50 are all about planning so that the province can be developed in an orderly way. He added that Bill 6 guarantees Albertans consultation, access to the courts, compensation and access to a property rights advocate. "There is lots of protection for Albertans and their property rights." Wildrose Alliance candidate Trevor Miller said the legislation attacks the rights of Albertans. "With these bills in place the government can freeze large tracts of land without compensating landowners. That is Bill 19. They can stick taxpayers with liabilities for carbon capture and storage deposits in Alberta. That is Bill 24. They can extinguish all existing permits, which is licences and land titles. That is Bill 36. And they can build big megaprojects using taxpayer dollars and seize land. That is Bill 50. Miller said a Wildrose government would reverse every property rights violation the government has committed, strengthen property rights, and legislate them to the fullest extent possible. "By repealing these bills and examining legislation dealing

with property rights the Wildrose government will erase the power grabs and restore the rights of Albertans." NDP candidate Bruce Hinkley said the fact that the government has received such a backlash over the legislation shows that it failed to do proper planning. "It was not clear and transparent, and only after it appeared that the voters were going to be very upset did these other policies come into place." Hinkley said the New Democrats have always stood by people, and property rights are a peoples' right. "They should not be stepped on and transgressed." EverGreen party candidate Mike Donnelly said the government shouldn't have a say in where they store the carbon that they are keeping. "If they are going to do it right under your properties, under your nose, and destroy your earth, what good are the farms and everything." Donnelly also raised concerns over the practice of fracking in Alberta. "I don't know if a lot of us have heard about fracking, but it has been destroying water resources in the province. I think we have to follow suit with what Quebec did. They have put a cease to the fracking period until there can be an investigation done on what harm it is causing. I think we have to step in that direction as well."

Golf Days come to O’Shea’s

By Dan Jensen

Camrose City Council gave first reading to a bylaw April 9 that would impose a local improvement tax on the residents living along 48b Avenue between the cul de sac turnaround at Lakeside Village (57 Street and 58 Street). The tax would generate $33,560 for the gravel base reconstruction and asphalt paving of the road (built in the late 1950s) in front of their properties. The total cost of the project is estimated to be $105,000. Under the City's local improvement policy, property owners are responsible for 33 per cent of roadway reconstruction projects. Residents will have 30 days to petition against the project, after which the bylaw will be presented to council for second and third readings. An open house will be held in the training room of the Camrose Fire Hall from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. April 24. Residents petitioned the City against the local improvement bylaw in 1992.

Shoestring Actors' Guild to present "Night Mother" From the Shoestring Actors’ Guild, Camrose

The scene is the living room and kitchen of an isolated rural house, which is shared by Jessie and her mother, Thelma. Jessie's father is dead; her loveless marriage ended in divorce; her son is absent, she can’t keep a job, and life has beaten her down. As the play begins Jessie calmly says, “Tonight I’m going to kill myself, Mama.” Night, Mother is an extraordinary play which explores the complex relationship between a mother and daughter as they share secrets and truths that have shaped their lives. Yvonne Smith is Mama and Cordelia Tindall is Jessie. These experienced actresses bring incredible depth and heartfelt emotion to their roles and the audience has a chance to truly understand the thoughts and feelings of Mama and Jessie. Cordelia Tindall has worked as an actor, director, and playwright for over 16 years. Her

Bauberger unveils 100 Dresses By Jane Cherry-Lemire City of Camrose Arts Director

Chuck MacLean Arts Centre is presenting the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program. Nicole Bauberger's 100 Dresses for Alberta include little paintings and their names tell a story from the three Alberta places. Drawn from the details of the place and season, there’s bound to be at least one painting that speaks to anyone looking at the show. Nicole sets up on site to paint in encaustic, a form of painting in beeswax. She then paints 100 small encaustic paintings of dresses in about 10 days, each inspired by some small thing she notices about being in that particular time and place. She welcomes stories and suggestions from the general public as she paints, so that she can try to capture the worries, dreams, flavours and materials of that particular human landscape. This show is selected from her three Albertan 100 Dresses projects: Grande Prairie, in November of 2008; Calgary, in March of 2009; and St. Albert in October of 2009. Nicole is asked why dresses? Her response is “dresses are fun, lots of dresses in one place, it's got to be a party.” She uses the dress as an actor to do things in the paintings or look at the world as material for a dress. It’s a way of painting a landscape capturing the vernacular of the area including the human element. This exhibition consists of 18 panels, six panels for each of the three communities. Each panel consisting of five to six small bees wax encaustic paintings representing the uniqueness of each of the communities. The show will be featured until April 26.

Bruce Hinkley a man of action By Dan Jensen

NDP candidate Bruce Hinkley

Wetaskiwin-Camrose NDP candidate Bruce Hinkley isn't content to just talk about how the province is being run. He wants to do something about it. "I've decided that by running I can have a say in the issues rather than just talk about them," he said. Hinkley describes himself as a social democrat who believes in the principles of social justice and the greatest good for the greatest number. He feels the New Democrats offer strong leadership, excellent policies and better government.


4965 Main Street, Camrose – 780-672-3622 Mon. to Fri., 9:00 am to 5:30 pm; Sat., 10:00 am to 5:00 pm

Hinkley believes the Conservative government's economic plan is broken. "I suppose the biggest evidence is the fact that the party has split into Conservative One and Conservative Two, namely the PC and the Wildrose," he said. "Even people who are former Conservatives are leaving the Party in droves. That isn't just happening because Danielle Smith is a pretty woman. It is happening because the Conservatives' plan is broken. Hinkley sees an underpriced oil royalty rate as one of the reasons the government has a debt and deficit. "When Premier Lougheed was the premier of this province in the 1970s Alberta had a royalty rate of 40 per cent, a number that has been chiselled down to nine per cent today," he said. "The New Democrats would collect a fair share. We would pay off our debt, balance our budgets and properly finance health care and education." Hinkley points to Norway as a country that is managing its Heritage Trust Fund in the proper way. "Norway, which has the same population as Alberta – maybe a little bit more – has a $1 trillion heritage fund that generates about $40 billion a year in interest at four per cent. Alberta's expenditures in the budget released about a month ago were $41 billion. If we had followed the example of Norway and we had a huge prin-

cipal, the interest on the fund, not even the principal, would pay for the running of the entire province." Hinkley said the fact that more and more small communities are losing their schools is evidence that the Conservatives have abandoned farm families and has no economic plan for the province's rural areas. "There are no programs in place that would make it desirable for young families to move into these rural areas. The parents of children attending rural schools would like to see the schools stay open for the vitality of the community." Hinkley believes that in addition to the financial deficit, the Conservative government is dealing with a moral and ethical deficit. "We have people taking money for non-sitting committees and people taking huge adjustments, or the golden handshake with money that comes from the taxpayers, and nothing is being disclosed in the budget," he said. "The Canadian Taxpayers' Association has had to dig for the information and go through FOIP. The coverups are wrong and they are unethical." Hinkley said he opposes any type of plan to privatize health care. "The New Democrats are the only party standing for public universal health care." Hinkley plans to attend candidates' forums throughout the Wetaskiwin-Camrose constitu-

Camrose Association For Community Living (CAFCL) offers two scholarships each year. The Norris Bowen Scholarship was established by Muriel Rieger and is administered by CAFCL. The $300 scholarship will be awarded to an individual with a developmental disability participating in further education of any type. The second scholarship is The Camrose Association For Community Living Disabilities Studies Scholarship. This is a $1,000 scholarship that is awarded to a student in the disabilities field or a field of related study. Vanessa Tellier was the recipient of the Disabilities Studies Scholarship for the 2011-2012 academic year. Vanessa is a mother of four studying at the University of Alberta Augustana Campus. She is currently finishing her last semester of schooling and will have a Sociology Major and a Minor in Psychology. Vanessa has volunteered with the Camrose Association for Community Living’s Teaching Independence Parenting Skills Program (TIPS), DARE Program, and CAFCL’s charity auction. She received an award for volunteering over 2,000 hours during her teenage years. Vanessa’s goal is to make a positive difference in the lives of others. If you or someone you know would benefit from either of these scholarships please contact Cherilyn Sharkey at 780-6720257 or by email at csharkey@ Deadline for submitting scholarship applications is Friday, May 11.

ency to explain his views, and is meeting with different groups and organizations every day. He was, he admitted, "cautiously optimistic" after talking to Grade 12 students at Wetaskiwin High School. "I was thinking if we had the election in that room after our discussion and question and answer, the New Democrats would win the constituency," he said. "It has been a tough road here for sure, but all the Wild Rose and the Conservatives are doing in their attack ads against each other is providing that the other Party is not capable of running the government. If they split then the New Democrats, with our strong leadership and excellent policies, have a chance of making it a three-way race." Hinkley is a semi-retired Wetaskiwin resident who does contract work for Muskwachees College in Hobbema and the Aspen View School district and is a student in the University of Alberta's Spanish language certificate program. He was a school principal at Smoky Lake for 14 years, and has served as volunteer on several community organizations, including the Boys and Girls Club, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, and Wetaskiwin's Tiger Athletic Association. He was a candidate for the NDP in the provincial election of 1993 and a candidate for the Forum Party in the provincial election of 1994.

Transform your body challenge at Fitness Centre By Dan Jensen

Want to increase your metabolism and make your body an efficient, calorie-burning machine? If so the body transformation and training class at Augustana Fitness Centre May 2 to June 27 may be just the solution. The class will focus on increasing body mass through a combination of resistance training and body weight exercises. "A lot of people come into the gym with the goal of losing weight and go right away to the cardio equipment," said fitness supervisor Deanna Roper. "They don't realize that if they don't gain muscle mass they are just going to go back to the same circle of getting big and small, big and small. Increasing muscle mass will help people maintain their weight because it increases metabolism." The class will be led by Jessica Suzanski, who was featured in a fitness magazine, Fitness Makeover, after she transformed her body by losing 100 pounds. The AFCLA certified group fitness instructor will give participants a program they can follow and show them how they can properly use the weights to achieve maximum benefit. "The cardio machines are a lot easier for people to figure out how to use, so people just feel safer on them," said Suzanski. "They don't know what to do with free weights and body weight exercises, or they don't know if they are doing it right and are afraid of hurting themselves. "We want to give them a good program to help them with their journey." The body transformation and training class will run in conjunction with transformation challenge, the winner of which will be able to pocket half of the cumulative registration fees and donate the other half to a local charity of his or her choice. "The challenge is to help people transform their bodies as much as they can over an eight-week period by improving their health, fitness and nutrition," explained Roper. "The winner will be chosen by a panel of staff within the Edgeworth Centre. Transformation challenge participants will receive a free resource package with fitness and nutrition tips. The deadline to register for both the transformation challenge and the body transformation and training class is April 30. More information is available from the Augustana Fitness Centre front desk.

Trevor Miller By Dan Jensen

Wildrose Alliance candidate Trevor Miller is committed to working for the betterment of everyone in the riding of Wetaskiwin-Camrose. "I have enjoyed getting involved and helping people address their issues as a member of Camrose County council," said Miller, "and I am sure I would enjoy doing the same as the area's MLA. "I would be very happy to represent Wetaskiwin-Camrose in the legislature. Miller chose to run for the Wildrose last summer after being impressed with the Party's stance on personal freedoms, free enterprise and what he sees as too much government. "The Party really spoke to my own personal values. I learned that as an MLA I would be able to freely represent the people who live and work in the constituency." Miller has heard many concerns in his door to door campaign about the high cost of health care. "The main message I am getting from people is that the health care system is too cumbersome and that the waiting times are longer than they have ever been before," he said. "I've been told that we need to decentralize the health care super board and decentralize decision making, so that patients have more choice, and more decisions could be made at the local level." He's also getting the message that there needs to be more attention paid to education. "I have been receiving positive feedback about the Wildrose Alliance's plan to help families with children in school by providing tax rebates and credits and eliminating school fees," he said. "The Party believes that it is vital to have a strongly supported education system if we want to continue to thrive and grow a province. "Everything has to be about the kids." Miller said the Wildrose Party would work to reduce government spending by reducing the government manager ratio from the current four to one to about 10 or 12 to one. "We don't want to decimate the government force but we would like to bring the wages more in line with that of private industry. We would also reduce the size of government and focus on the primary services, like teachers and nurses." Continued on page 27

Donnelly would be a watchdog By Dan Jensen

Wetaskiwin-Camrose EverGreen Party candidate Mike Donnelly would stand up for Albertans if elected April 23. "I would be a watchdog for the average Canadian whose voice does not seem to be heard," said the 43-year-old Camrose resident. "My position would always be to listen and address the concerns of my constituents and all Canadians. We need MLAs that are out there in the communities listening to the concerns of the public and bringing them back to the legislature without the fear of retribution from their respective leaders." Donnelly would look at all the options that are available for changing the current health care situation in the Camrose area. "One issue I see that we have is numerous people have been seeking medical treatment outside the city," he said. "We have a limited number of clinics and I would like to find the reason why." Donnelly does not agree with the Keystone Pipeline either economically or environmentally. "I feel that the options of upgrading in Alberta, environmentally friendly of course, should be looked at," he said. "This would create more employment as well as lower the impact the pipeline would have running into the U.S." Donnelly feels larger corporations need to be held more responsible for the harm they are causing the environment, and would like to see policies imposed that would force companies that are destroying the environment to restore it at their cost, without a burden to the taxpayers or consumers. "We could possibly look back at a carbon tax which would force them (the companies) to lower emissions or pay the fees and

have us restore environmental damages ourselves," he said. "The money could be put toward exploring renewable energy sources." Donnelly would also like to see the use of more renewable resources such as wind, solar and geo thermal. "It has been suggested in the past that a feed-in tariff be implemented for those that want to sell renewable energy to the grid," he said. "They would be given a guaranteed price set by the government, and a guarantee they will have access to that grid. We do have the space in the province to harness this energy and it should be put to use. Farmers which have poor seasons can at least rely on a bit of backup with selling to this grid." Donnelly feels there is a need in this election campaign to focus more on those who choose not to go to the polls because of a 'my vote won't make a difference' attitude. "I want to draw those people in and have them start realizing that this is our province and our voice should be heard," he said. "I am running with the slogan of Your Alberta Your Voice, which pertains mostly to a participatory government."

Donnelly feels that the EverGreen Party, which sprung up following the deregistration of the Alberta Greens after the last election, holds a lot of the same values as himself. The Party acknowledges that human beings are part of the natural world, respects the specific values of all forms of life, asserts that the key to social justice is the equitable distribution of resources to ensure that all have full opportunities for personal and social development, and strives for a democracy in which all citizens have the right to express their views, and are able to directly participate in the environmental, economic, social and political decisions which affect their lives. It feels that power and responsibility must be concentrated in local and regional communities, and devolved only where essential to higher tiers of governance, and recognizes the need to maintain biodiversity through the sustainable use of renewable resources. "I have been following the Green Party of Canada for a number of years and believe we need to change the direction we are going in to have a sustainable economy and environment for our grandchildren's children," said Donnelly. "The Party focuses on restoration of the environment, creating a sustainable economy, restoration of community and the renewal of democracy." Born in Ontario, Donnelly relocated to Alberta in 1999 and has been living in Camrose for the past seven years. He is presently employed as a printing press operator, an occupation in which he has 25 years of experience, as well as a part-time automotive parts and service advisor. He enjoys camping in the less developed areas of Alberta and appreciates the province's natural surroundings.

Trevor Miller Continued from page 26

Miller said the Wildrose Alliance, although a Conservative party, is very different from the provincial PCs, in that it is more grass roots and likes to take its mandate formed by Albertans. He feels that Albertans have long needed another choice for a governing party and that the Wildrose Alliance is fully equipped to deliver. "You need to get people to the polls and give them the chance to vote for the party they feel best fits their values." Miller, who grew up on a farm at Westlock, is employed as an agronomy manager for Cargill (central Alberta) who has both an undergraduate and post graduate degree in plant science. He and his wife, Lora, are the proud parents of three children.

Truth about healthy food Albertans can create healthier home and workplace environments by recognizing common myths and misinformation about nutrition, according to Alberta Health Services (AHS). “When it comes to choosing how to eat healthy, there’s a lot of conflicting information out there. We often hear it when we’re talking with clients, families and friends,” says AHS dietitian Jillyan Jay. “AHS dietitians are regularly debunking these common myths with evidence-based information to help Albertans get their nutrition facts straight once and for all.” March, which was National Nutrition Month, AHS addressed the following myths through Twitter, at AHS – BeHealthy, and on its web site, Myth #1: Avoid carbs if you want to lose weight. Jay says carbohydrates contain important nutrients such as B vitamins, fibre, folic acid and iron. “The best weight-loss plan is one you can make a part of your lifestyle. Low carbohydrate diets often don’t work because they are tough to stick with long term,” she says. Myth #2: The % Daily Value on a product’s Nutrition Facts table is not very useful. “The per cent Daily Value provides a quick overview of the nutrient profile of a food and is actually a very effective tool to help you make healthier food choices,” says Jay. Some nutrients should be consumed sparingly (saturated fat, trans fat and sodium) so look for products that have five per cent or less of the daily recommended allowance of those nutrients per serving. Conversely, look for foods that have 15 per cent or more of the daily recommended allowance per serving of nutrients such as fibre, vitamins, calcium or iron. Myth #3: Eating seven to 10 servings of vegetables and fruit, as recommended in Canada’s Food Guide, is too difficult. Jay says planning can make it easy for adults to get the recommended servings. “Plan to have two or more servings at each meal and snack. Or pack vegetables and fruit for lunch. You can also fill half

your dinner plate with vegetables and fruit,” she says Myth #4: Multigrain is the same as whole grain. Multigrain products include different grains but they may not be whole, says Jay. Whole grains contain the entire grain seed or “kernel” and are higher in fibre and other nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and plant compounds (like sterols) that benefit health. “You will get the greatest health benefit from eating whole grains so make at least half your grain products whole grain each day,” she says. Myth #5: You’ll gain weight if

you follow Canada’s Food Guide. It recommends too much food. Canada's Food Guide describes the average amount or number of servings of food most people need in a day. Some people need more or less food than others. It depends on age, gender, body size and activity level. It can also change if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. “The portion, or amount, you eat may be more or less than one Food Guide serving,” says Jay. “It’s important to know how many servings are in your portions. Also, limit foods and beverages that are not part of Canada’s Food Guide, especially those high in calories, fat, sugar and salt.

“Enjoy a variety of healthy choices from each food group in the amount that is right for your age, sex and activity level, and you should not gain weight.” Myth #6: Drinking energy drinks is the best way to get energized. The best way to get energized, says Jay, is to eat well, be active, stay hydrated, and get enough sleep. “Energy drinks usually contain lots of sugar and have caffeine. While they might make you feel a short burst of energy, it does not last,” she says. Jay recommends choosing healthy drinks such as water, lowfat milk, fortified soy beverage, and 100 per cent vegetable or fruit juice.

Limit juice to a half a cup per day, she adds. AHS – BeHealthy is where Twitter users can find information for healthy living with topics ranging from active living and nutrition, to public health, clinic resources and mental health services. Alberta Health Services is the provincial health authority responsible for planning and delivering health supports and services for more than 3.7 million adults and children living in Alberta. Its mission is to provide a patientfocused, quality health system that is accessible and sustainable for all Albertans.

Having the information can save your life Submitted by Colleen Lindholm,

Camrose Primary Care Network If you have a medical emergency which requires an ambulance to come to your home, often the EMS staff have no knowledge of your medical history or the medications you are on. Having this information can be vital in the approach they take with your immediate medical care. Camrose Primary Care Network is pleased to re-new our partnership with Alberta Health Services Camrose Emergency Medical Services (EMS) in bringing you the “Tube of Life” program, a community project focusing on helping you maintain an up-to-date medical history and medication list in case of a medical emergency. The ‘Tube of Life’ is an initiative which gives EMS staff the information they need. It’s a compact, plastic cylinder holding a document that you fill in with the details of your medication information and other important directions in the case of an emergency. Also contained in the Tube is a fridge magnet that acts as an indicator to EMS personnel that you have a Tube of Life in your home, in which case, EMS would immediately know to review the details it contains. Your Tube of Life is stored in the refrigerator on the top right side which makes it simple for EMS to quickly retrieve your information. “The Tube of Life was one of the first Camrose PCN initiatives undertaken. It has set the tone for what the PCN is about with respect to establishing and maintaining key community partnerships,” said PCN executive director Stacey Strilchuk. “There have been a number of personal testimonials shared with the PCN whereby the Tube of Life has played a significant and positive role in an individual’s care by EMS and St. Mary’s Hospital.” “The more information we have about our patients, such as what medications they are taking and even a brief medical history, the better,” said Andy Potsma, EMS manager, central zone. For more information, visit or call 780608-4927.

Constituency Weeks in the Crowfoot riding Kevin Sorenson, M.P., Crowfoot

As your federally-elected representative, I have some reservations about writing a news column while our province is immersed in a provincial election. Voters will want to be careful not to ‘mix’ federal issues with provincial ones while deciding which way to cast their ballot. We can congratulate and thank all the candidates for agreeing to stand for election. That is not an easy decision for anyone, and everyone who puts his or her name forward should be commended. As well, I encourage all of the citizens of our great province to cast your vote! It is our democratic duty to exercise

this political freedom for which previous generations of Canadians fought and died. Canadian citizens are privileged to have rights that are not available in too many nations around the world. The weeks of April 8 and 15 are Constituency Office weeks in the Parliamentary calendar and the House of Commons is not sitting. As your Member of Parliament, I will be meeting with many of you in our Constituency office and in Satellite Offices throughout our large geographic riding, including: Three Hills (Tuesday, April 10), Oyen (Thursday, April 12), Strathmore and Chestermere (Tuesday, April 17); and Stettler (April 18).

So far, Budget 2012, Canada’s Economic Action Plan unveiled in Ottawa last week seems to be receiving favourable reviews. For the most part, I am hearing that we understand the austerity measures our government is taking to equip our nation to pursue opportunities and remain prosperous now and for the long term. We are keeping taxes low and cutting government spending. In the continuing uncertain global economy we are focused on keeping Canadians working, creating jobs, and growing the Canadian economy. Budget 2012 provides a $1.1 billion ‘tool box’ of measures to stimulate and encourage entrepreneurship,

innovation, and research. We want federal funding to be aimed at industrial research that will lead to the promotion of commercial innovation and thereby be more capable of growing Canada’s economy. I hope everyone will visit to read about these efforts. The best news that Budget 2012 brings for Alberta is the improvement to the conditions for businesses with investments in responsible resource development. These firms and their workers will now have a streamlined ‘one project, one review’ system. While we all want the responsible development of our province’s natural resource wealth, we want

these reviews to be fair and based on scientific evidence. The time-frame for reviews of these projects will be shortened to facilitate making decisions earlier so as to accelerate development. More projects can be considered if the failed ones can be dispensed with more quickly. Some of these reviews will be up to the provinces themselves to conduct and this is good news for Alberta. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this or previous columns you may write me at 4945-50 Street, Camrose, Alberta, T4V 1P9, call 780-6084600, toll-free 1-800-665-4358, fax 780-608-4603 or e-mail

Canada Day plans are starting to heat up Even though spring has just begun, the planning and fundraising for this year’s Canada Day celebrations has been heating up for a while. “This year we commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the War of 1812 and as such we will be incorporating these themes into the celebrations. Organizing this event is fun, but is a huge undertaking and we truly appreciate all the assistance that we receive from the community,” said Jane CherryLemire, committee chair. "It will be fun to add a few new things this year to celebrate this year’s theme.” Joining, Cherry-Lemire in the planning of this event are Buffy da Silva, Corinna Nilson, Camrose District Museum, Tanya Fox, Fox TaeKwon-Do, Kjeryn Davis, Investors Group and Debra Hannaford. Sponsorship packages have gone out to approximately 100 local businesses and service clubs. There are different levels of sponsorship available: gold, silver, bronze, friends, volunteer and for items to be used in the barrel raffle. Each level of sponsorship has a different level of

recognition, from photographs in the paper, tax receipts and at the site the day of the event. Cherry-Lemire said, “Each year we look to the community for help and support and each year we are always amazed at the support that we receive.” The committee has also started planning a fundraising barbecue at M & M Meats for May 26, as well another exciting special event in partnership with the Canadian Brewhouse, and Richardson’s Jewellers, which has been named Diamonds and Sparks. “We are always looking for ways to raise the money that is needed to put together a funfilled event, so it is always exciting to come up with new ways of inviting the community to get involved,” said Cherry-Lemire. “As our plans are finalized, we will have more details to share.” As the event gets closer, everyone can follow our progress on the City web site at, as well as the Tourism Camrose web site. For further information regarding donations or volunteering, contact Jane Cherry-Lemire at 672-9949.

BRCF grant supports Special Olympics By Dan Jensen

The Battle River Community Foundation has granted $1,000 to Special Olympics Camrose. Special Olympics Camrose is a local chapter of Special Olympics Alberta, which was founded in 1980. The mission is to enrich the lives of Albertans with an intellectual disability through sport. Through the participation of sport, athletes adopt a greater active lifestyle and have a better quality of life. Colin Atkinson, chair, Special Olympics Camrose, talks about the local organization: "The Camrose chapter has been in existence for nearly 20 years and consists of approximately 60 to 70 athletes ranging in age from early teens to mid/late '50s. Our athletes are all from either Camrose or the surrounding districts. We have eight board members with the majority also involved in coaching our offered sports. Our volunteer coaches total eight, with at least that many support volunteers." Atkinson describes their programs: "We currently run bowling, softball, swimming and have run curling in prior years but were forced to drop that due to our inability to find coaches. Our three remaining programs pretty well run locally with all sports travelling provincially to attend tournaments, as well as provincial tryouts. The bowling program has the most participants (close to 40), and our ball program (24 participants) has grown significantly over the past year or so, to the point we run with two teams at a time." Atkinson goes on to say, "Our project or program for 2012 will be the inclusion/participation of the Jean Conrad Ball held annually in St. Paul, Alberta. This venture is our biggest financial

need as with transportation, accommodations and meals, the cost runs between $5,000 and $7,000. We have applied to McDonald's to partner hosting the 2012 McHappy Day as part of our fundraising. Fundraising is one of our biggest challenges in order to run these programs." The grant is funded by generous donors who contribute to the Battle River Community Foundation's Community Fund. It is also made possible by Gordon French and Arie and Leny Vanderjagt, who have created endowment funds with the Foundation. Arie and Leny have asked that income earned from their endowment fund be used to support children with special needs. Their passion was for these children. Arie contributed many hours to his adopted community by being a Beaver leader, helping start the local minor soccer program, volunteering to Habitat for Humanity and the Messiah Lutheran Church. He was a committed Centra Cam board member and a Rotarian. The Gordon French fund was established by his brother, Arthur, in support of the physically handicapped. Income from this fund is to assist individuals with programs and/or services which may advance or enhance the prospects of employability and the supporting needs and challenges of the physically handicapped. The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support projects in East Central Alberta which benefit local communities and have a positive impact on the future. Contributions to the Battle River Community Foundation are permanently invested in endowment funds currently valued in excess of $6.4 million.

You are invited to be a displayer at… Wednesday, September 5, 2012 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. The purpose of the event is to showcase clubs, organizations and businesses which offer a learning course or recreational activity, want to recruit volunteers, and/or want to sign up participants. Last year over 600 people strolled through the 63 displayer tables and learned about the wide range of opportunities Camrose has to offer. Displayer tables and demonstration opportunities are available on a first-come, first-served basis so act quickly to book your space. Deadline for registration is June 13, 2012 or when we are full to capacity. Registration details and forms are available at or email

Chev Sonic Serious competitor with fun spirit

Graeme Davidson McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet By Dan Jensen

The all-new Chevrolet Sonic at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC blends small car practicality with a passion for driving. "Its combination of great design, fun driving experience and the latest connectivity features create a serious competitor with a fun spirit," said McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC dealer principal Will McClellan. The Sonic is offered in two body styles: a stylish four-door sedan and a sporty five-door, each of which delivers class-leading rear-seat roominess and cargo space. "From every angle, Sonic sedan and five-door models convey strength, stability and refinement," said McClellan. At firstglance, the five-door model looks like a three-door hatch because the rear door handles are directly located in the "C" pillar area. The rear of the five-door continues with unconventional details, including exposed, motorcycle-inspired rear headlamps. Details that reinforce Sonic's quality and attention to detail include chrome grille surrounds and matte black honeycomb grille inserts on all models. A wide, planted stance with wheels at the corners proportions conveys performance, while progressive raked body lines suggest movement, even when the car is stationary. A range of large wheel sizes, including 17-inch alloy wheels, reinforces the sporty demeanor. Inspired interior Sonic's cabin complements the motorcycleinspired exterior with a detailed instrument cluster featuring a large, round analog tachometer set within an asymmetrical LCD readout, with large digital speedometer display. The mid-instrument panel surface is available in two colours (dark titanium and brick) and flows

seamlessly into the upper doors with premium lowglass finishes. The automatic shift knob has a "cobra head" design, while the manual shifter has a chromefinished knob. Tubular outboard climate controls protrude from the instrument panel surface. The interior includes storage compartment in the centre stacks and doors. The rear seats fold flat for carrying larger items. Front bucket seats are standard and heated front seats are available. Powertrains Chevrolet Sonic models are powered by efficient, power-dense small-displacement engines, including the Ecotec 1.4 litre turbo and the Ecotec 1.8 lite – the same engines used in the new Chevrolet Cruze. Three transmissions are available: a five-speed manual and six-speed automatic with the 1.8 litre, and a six-speed manual with the 1.4 litre turbo. The Ecotec 1.4 litre turbo's power ratings are estimated at 138 horsepower (103 kW) and 148 lb.-ft. of torque (200 Nm) between 1,850 and 4,900 rpm. The wide rpm range for the maximum torque – a specific trait of turbocharged engines – helps the engine deliver a better driving experience and performance. Premium design elements give the engine world-class smoothness and durability. The turbocharger is integrated within the exhaust manifold for reduced weight and greater packaging flexibility in small vehicles. A reinforced crankshaft and stronger connecting rods deliver additional strength to support the engine's pressurized power and torque over a wide rpm band. The naturally aspirated Ecotec 1.8 litre engine has many of the same features of the Ecotec 1.4 litre turbo. It is a compact and durable four-cylinder

engine designed for low maintenance, low emissions, and fuel efficiency. Its two-stage variable intake manifold allows approximately 90 per cent of peak torque to be available from 2,400 to 6,500 rpm. It is estimated at 135 horsepower (101 kW), along with 123 lb.-ft. of torque (167 Nm) at 3,800 rpm. Athletic ride The Sonic brings agility and a fun-to-drive feel that is rare in the segment. Engineers who also work on the Corvette tuned the Son's confident ride and handling, giving it a more direct and athletic feel, while balancing the vehicle for the broad range of driving conditions in North America. All models feature a MacPherson strut front suspension with coil springs and a stabilizer bar, and a semi-independent, torsion beam axle-mount compound link-type rear suspension – featuring a robust, tubular V-shape beam – with gas-charged shocks. The front and rear tracks are identical at 59.4 inches (1,509 mm), for well-planted stability and excellent balance. Electronic power steering is standard and features a wear compensator that continually adjusts the system interaction with the steering gear to ensure precise steering action over the life of the system. Sonic's body structure is designed to be one of the stiffest in the segment. Its rigidity enabled engineers to tune the ride and handling more precisely. Sonic's unique "flat top frame" cradle, for example, assures optimal stiffness in the front chassis portion of the vehicle. The rear axle is essentially a straight axle without contour for packaging retstraints and reduced noise, vibration and harshness. A comprehensive safety package adds peace of mind with standard Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS), the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system, and up to 10 available airbags.

City adds clean week

Mayor Marshall Chalmers and City council are encouraging Camrose residents to show their concern for the environment and their communities by participating in Pitch-In Canada Week. Pitch-In Canada is a national, community-based organization comprised of eco-action and community volunteers that encourage voluntary action to: keep communities clean and beautiful and restore and maintain a healthy environment. The City of Camrose has participated in the Pitch-In Canada campaign for several years, and this year will be no different. During Pitch-In Canada Week, local schools, along with City councillors and volunteers will be tidying up school yards and parks throughout the city. A dozen staff from Cargill's Camrose location already helped the City get a head start on spring cleanup. More Power. Less Fuel.

Haiti still needs support to rebuild after earthquake By Murray Green

Chester Ronning School students had a lunch of only bread and water as they went Hungry for Haiti to help save an orphanage in the third world country. The bland lunch created awareness of the country's continued struggle to rebuild after an earthquake three years ago. Members of the community were encouraged to donate the cost of lunch on April 12 to help save the God’s Little Angels orphanage in Haiti. "Haiti still needs our help. We want to instill a very tiny sense of how daily life is for the Haitians and an awareness of how fortunate we are to rarely feel hunger," said teacher Miss Marie Olson and a member of the Chester Ronning School's Go Hungry for Haiti Committee. Three years ago, a devastating earthquake destroyed much of Haiti. Many children were left homeless and often without parents. Today much of Haiti looks the same, as rubble is still piled in the streets, tents are still being used as homes and orphanages are in even greater need. "God’s Little Angels is the orphanage Chester Ronning School will directly support through our donations," said Marie. Following the assembly, students return to their rooms, while waiting for “aid workers” to bring their lunch of bread and water. "We will gather on the floor with the heat turned down and create cards

for the children of Haiti. Guests are welcome to join any class to share this time," added Marie. "We hope to instill in our students and ourselves a very tiny sense of how it is for the Haitians and an awareness of how fortunate we are to rarely feel hunger." The school raised $3,000 in the first year, and that was matched by the government. The 7.0 earthquake changed the lives of people in the country in just 30 seconds. Miss Olson further explained the situation. "Empathy means walking in another person's shoes. Try to understand a hurt, heartache and loss in another child, person, family and country. We can never truly know how anyone else feels about something, but we can make the attempt." Cornerstone School staff member Steve Ioanieis recently returned from Haiti. "The roads are very bumpy and are made from the rocks from the mountain. The houses are not the same as we have here. Some are made from cardboard, tin or are tents," said Steve, to the Grade 3 class. "Most of the houses have brick walls around them to protect them from other people stealing from them. They often put barb wire along the top of the fence. After the earthquake, people were so hungry that they were stealing food." Steve explained that the country has a lot of cars, but not very many rules of the road. "They like to beep their horns at each other.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Former Haiti resident Grace Hurlburt met with Chester Ronning School Grade 3 students Jordyn Rasmussen, Nalyn Tindall and Isabell Vert for a lunch of bread and water to create awareness that the country is still trying to recover from an earthquake three years ago.

Most people like to sell goods along the street or side of the road. One big difference between Canada and Haiti is the amount of the garbage. They have so much garbage and it is everywhere." Steve explained to the students that the country is so poor because they have had bad governments in the past. "The government didn't look after the people. They took the money for themselves. They have a new government now, and little by little, it is changing for the better." The orphanage has two buildings. "One is for babies from newborn to two years old. They have

between 30 and 40 babies," said Steve. "They have another house down the road a bit called the toddler house. There were 30 or more children as well. We spent most of the time playing with the babies." The children have toys that have been donated. "Some of them don't work like they do here. Batteries are very scarce," said Steve, who volunteered for a week in Haiti. Each of the volunteers was required to raise money for the trip. "We raised about $27,000 in total and it went for the expenses to get the team over there. We also filled a couple of hockey bags with donated

clothes and took them over. The Battle River School Division donated a laptop and we also had three desk top computers that we delivered. In the end, we will be donating more money from the expense money we had left over." Donations can be dropped off at Chester Ronning School or to a staff member. The God's Littlest Angels orphanage is running short of the funds it needs to pay for food, diapers and medical supplies. The orphanage helps children who have lost their parents. The school will be collecting funds until Thursday, April 19.

CAFCL relies on many dedicated volunteers By Cherilyn Sharkey

Did you know that the Camrose Association for Community Living (CAFCL) has over 71 volunteers every year? And did you know that together they volunteered over 2,011 hours last year? CAFCL relies on volunteers in a number of ways. Each year we partner with different organizations in the community like Augustana and CLBI. This past fall we were lucky enough to work with Canada World Youth and had two volunteers that really made the experience a complete success.

We look forward to future partnerships with them. We also have community members who volunteer their time to work with individuals who have the same interests. Wayne Sampson has been volunteering with CAFCL for three years and spends every second Thursday doing woodworking with an individual in service. They both get something out of the experience and Wayne is helping make a difference. If you have a special talent or passion, we might have someone that would

fit with you and you, too, can help make a difference. Our major fundraiser – our annual Charity Auction is held each October. This event is organized mostly by volunteers. The volunteers help plan the event, canvas local businesses and help with execution of the event. We look for volunteers each year that might want to have fun putting together something that generates not only funds for our programs but also education and awareness. CAFCL also relies on our volunteer board of directors. Ten

community members volunteer to govern our organization. They determine our vision, mission, values and goals. They monitor the organization, our results and our finances. The staff at CAFCL also volunteer. Sometimes it is at an event like a casino or an Oilers 50/50, sometimes it is with a specific individual, and sometimes it may be on a number of different boards and committees in the community. To the 71 people who volunteered for CAFCL last year, you

are the best. Know that you are valued and we salute you. We are always in need of volunteers, so if you are interested, please check us on Facebook/ Camrose Association For Community Living, our website, www., or give us a call 780-6720257. We assist people with disabilities, people with acquired brain injury, and families at risk to live and participate in the community. With a staff of over 110, CAFCL serves people across East Central Alberta.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER April 17, 2012

City, County partnering for prayer A unique and inspiring partnership is being formed between Camrose County and the City of Camrose. Mayor Marshall Chalmers and Reeve Don Gregorwich will co-host the City and County prayer breakfast on Wednesday, May 23, at the Norsemen Inn, Camrose. This year's prayer breakfast will feature music presented by Seismic, a children's choir from the Camrose Church of God, a talk by Ron and Vivianne Grue, and a time of prayer for the communities and civic leaders within Camrose county and the city. The Grues have been involved in numerous projects in developing countries, mission trips with their church, and have sought to live out their faith and prayer lives in a practical way, locally and abroad. While the first of its kind as a county and city prayer breakfast partnership, this will be the second annual community prayer breakfast event. Last year's inaugural event was hosted by His Worship Mayor Chalmers. However, upon invitation, Reeve Gregorwich and County council members enthusiastically endorsed the idea of partnering for the 2012 version of the breakfast. Also involved in the program will be representation of local, provincial and federal governments bringing greetings from their respective constituencies. Various members of the Ministerial Association and community will give leadership to this part of the program. Planning committee chairperson Brian Krushel encourages community participation in the prayer breakfast. "We changed the day of the prayer breakfast from Saturday last year to Wednesday this year. By starting the event at 7:30 a.m. and concluding just before 9:00 a.m., our hope is to accommodate members of the business and professional community." The local prayer breakfast is patterned after the national prayer breakfast movement that began approximately 30 years ago. Civic leaders, business persons and citizens of the general population in many communities in North America gather each year for a time of quiet reflection, prayer, and nurture of the spiritual core of their work. The Camrose and District Ministerial Association is in the final stages of planning the details, and members are very pleased to see the event going forward. Association president Rev. Dean Rostad states, "We live in an amazing community, don't you agree? Camrose and Camrose County are a blessed land. I am excited about this upcoming prayer breakfast as an opportunity to give thanks for where we live and to pray for its leaders." Tickets for the Camrose City and County prayer breakfast are now available at the City and County offices, Wisemen's Way Bookstore, as well as churches in the Camrose area. More information about the Camrose City and County prayer breakfast can be obtained by calling 780-672-3461. 4716-38 Street, Camrose Phone 780-672-2452

Roth to be installed as top Mason By Murray Green

On June 16, at its annual celebration in Red Deer, the Grand Lodge of Alberta will install David Roth, a member of Camrose Lodge, as the Grand Master for the following year. "The Grand Master oversees 125 lodges in the province," said David. "There are about 7,000 Masons in the province. You have to be elected three years in advance to be the Grand Master and work your way up. It is like being a second vice-president and then the first vice-president before receiving the top role. In our case, it is junior grand warden, senior grand warden, deputy grand master and then grand master." David was born and raised in Camrose, and graduated from Camrose Composite High School in 1964. After graduating with honours from NAIT in Architectural Technology, he attended the University of Oregon where he met and married Teresa. Both of them graduated with professional degrees in architecture and moved to Montreal in 1972 where they lived and worked for nine years. In 1981 the family, including their sons Jonathan and Andrew, moved to Edmonton where David practiced Architecture and Teresa was an instructor in Interior Design Technology at NAIT. After working for several years on his own, David joined Mickie Holland to form the partnership of Holland Roth Architects. David enjoyed working on historic restoration projects, which eventually brought him to Camrose to work on the Bailey Theatre and the Camrose Main Street Project. David and Teresa moved to Camrose in 2007 and David retired from the practice of architecture in 2011. David started his Masonic service in 1985 when he joined Commercial Lodge in Edmonton. He was Worshipful Master of Commercial Lodge in 1997 and District Deputy Grand Master of Beaverhills District in 2001-02. He joined several other Masonic organizations along the way including the Royal Arch Masons, Knights Templar and the Shriners. He is also a member of the Royal Order of Scotland and the Red Cross of Constantine. In 2010, David was coroneted a 33 degree Honorary Inspector General of the Supreme Council of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry of Canada. He is a member of Camrose Lodge and Mt. Olivet Chapter of Royal Arch Masons in Camrose, as well as the Battle River Shrine Club. He also rides his motorcycle with the Widows Sons Masonic Riding Association. David is a third generation Mason. His father became a Mason in Radisson, Saskatchewan, was a member of Camrose Lodge and Worshipful Master of Orion Lodge in Penticton, B.C. David’s grandfather was a Past District Deputy Grand Master in Saskatchewan and was a member of the Wawa Shrine Temple in Saskatchewan with John Diefenbaker.

Registering firearms eliminated

The Government of Canada has changed the Criminal Code and the Firearms Act to eliminate the requirement to register non-restricted firearms. Until further notice, due to a Court Order issued by the Quebec Superior Court, residents of Quebec are still required to register non-restricted firearms with the RCMP Canadian Firearms Program. Firearms owners are no longer required to obtain a registration certificate for non-restricted firearms from the Canadian Firearms Program (CFP). This does not impact registration requirements for restricted or prohibited firearms. Businesses that use business web services, available from the CFP web site, are advised that the registration and transfer of non-restricted firearms is no longer required or supported.

We provide a safe place to discuss feelings, share experiences, emotions and information, and learn from resource people. The group meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month in the

lower hall of the Camrose United Church. In May, "US" will be having resource people lead us in two workshops and discussion groups. On May 1 there will be a workshop on Caregiver Burnout and Stress, and on May 15 we will discuss the difficult topic of Resentment and Guilt from the perspective


of both the person in care and the caregiver, as well as the mental health issues caregivers and receivers face. We are extending an invitation to caregivers to join with "US" as we learn from professionals and each other as we share information and experiences on May 1 and May 15. The more people who can

attend and share will help to enlighten caregivers as we give understanding and support to each other. Anyone wanting further information is welcome to call Joan at 672-9579 or Doris at 672-6687. We would encourage persons to register with Joan or Doris if possible, but all are welcome.

In loving memory of

Elsie Dolaney who passed away on April 11, 2003 Time speeds on, nine years have passed, Since death it’s gloom, it’s shadows cast Within our home, where all seemed bright, And took from us a shining light. We miss that light and ever will, Her vacant place there’s none to fill Down here we mourn, but not in vain, For up in Heaven we will meet again. Sadly missed by husband Ed, Kari, Billy-Jo, Treyden and Shaylee Topolnicki, Melissa, Marty, Cody and Ty MacGregor Brent, Debbie and Dillon Delaney

The CAMROSE BOOSTER April 17, 2012

Larry Jacob Blatz Mr. Larry Jacob Blatz of Camrose passed away on Tuesday, April 9, 2012 at the age of 64 years. Larry Blatz was the youngest of 16 children born to Jacob and Amelia Blatz. He was born on October 31, 1947 in Camrose, Alberta. Larry loved to explain how his mother didn’t stop bearing children until she had the perfect one – Larry – and that he was her special Halloween treat. Larry grew up on his parents’ farm near Daysland, Alberta. After he started school, he went to live with his eldest brother, Wendy, for two years so he could walk his niece Theresa to school each day – uphill both ways. Barefoot. In the snow. Larry always had a great love of music; everyone remembers him whistling his way into a room or singing a funny song when the moment struck. Larry fondly shared the story of how he bought his very own bicycle with his share of the prize money he and his sister Judy won singing at Camrose Fair. Larry was a gifted athlete with a lifelong love of sport. From midget hockey, high school basketball, curling, and on to the golf course, sports were always an important part of Larry’s life. Ann and Larry met each other through sports, and shared their passion throughout their life together. Larry was instrumental in building the clubhouse, greens and other upgrades to Daysland Golf Course. Larry inspired his children and grandchildren to love sports as much as he did, and he spent many days driving his grandchildren on the golf cart, ensuring that they could find their way around the course. Coming from a large family, including 11 stepbrothers and stepsisters, it’s no surprise that Larry wanted a big family of his own. His wife, however, stopped him at four: Trina, Tim, Kelly and Shawna. Larry always spoke of his children with pride, but never missed an opportunity to keep them humble with a bit of good-natured teasing. While nobody can seem to agree on which son- or daughter-in-law was his favorite, everyone knew that his grandchildren Mackenzie, Hanna, Stephanie, Amelia and Henry all held a very special place in his heart. His only complaint about his grandchildren was that his children never made them fast enough. Some of Larry’s memorable characteristics were his strong work ethic and his entrepreneurial spirit. His construction career began when he apprenticed under his brother Joe in Provost, and continued as foreman for Ron Stang’s company, Rose City Builders. He started a number of businesses over the years including Blatz’s Steakhouse, Daysland Car Wash and L&G Greenhouses. He came back to construction when he started B’s Contracting, where he earned a reputation for fair pricing, high quality work, and an eye for detail and craftsmanship. He was known as a great boss, generous with his time, money and knowledge. No one knows this better than his son, the nephews, and the friends who worked beside him over three decades and who continue his legacy today. Larry’s life was one of faith and service. He was a devout Catholic for his whole life, and lived his faith through his integrity, his fairness and his volunteerism. He served as President of the Lion’s Club, the Golf Club, and the Curling Club in Daysland. He taught his faith by example, attending Mass regularly, and using his skills and resources to help Habitat for Humanity and other charities. Larry was most generous with his free time entertaining his many friends, siblings, in-laws, children and grandchildren. He was a regular feature at Daysland Golf Course, and loved playing all sorts of card games whenever he could fit them into his busy life. His exploits in Texas Hold ’Em Poker earned him the moniker “All-In Larry”, and his dining room table has borne the weight of countless games of Buck. He achieved his dream of playing golf year-round by buying a house in Buckeye, Arizona, close to many of his friends and family. More recently, Larry dipped his toes into the fast-moving waters of the internet, learning to use Facebook, email, video chat and many different online card games. While Larry was taken from us much sooner than anyone hoped, we are blessed to have known him. We have the gift of remembering him at his best; laughing, joking and sharing his love with his friends and family. Larry is remembered by his wife Ann (Sommer); children Trina (Michael Vietri), Tim (Tracy), Kelly Skinner (Alan) and Shawna Hopkins (Jamey); grandchildren Mackenzie and Hanna MacDonald, Stephanie Vietri, Amelia and Henry Skinner; siblings Clara Maki, Joe (Isabelle), Eddie (Anita), Mary Nolin (Tony), Ester Bieganek, Willie (Donna), Pearl Gabourie (Phil), Judy Benson (Curt); in-laws Mary Blatz, Shirley Brown (Ray), Janice Blatz, Janet and Jim Hillaby, Lamont and Sharon Sommer, Colleen and Jack McIntyre, Collette and Gary Mesenchuk, Valerie and Bob Bailey; and numerous stepbrothers and stepsisters, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Larry was predeceased by his parents Jacob and Amelia (nee Prediger); stepfather Adolph Stang; father- and mother-in-law Gordon and Gladys Sommer; and family Wendelin Blatz, Josephine and Tony Gartner, Betty and Owen Clouston, Jim Bieganek, Richard Blatz, Ben Blatz, Elnora and Don Hauser, Rudy Maki, Infant Jacob, Othmar Stang, Rick Hillaby and PJ Bailey. A prayer vigil was held on Thursday, April 12, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. from St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church. A Mass of Christian Burial was held on Friday, April 13, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. from St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church with Rev. Larry Pedersen as celebrant. Interment followed in Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose. If friends so desire, memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to The Rick Hillaby and The P.J. Bailey Funds, c/o Battle River Community Foundation, or the charity of one’s choice. To send condolences, please visit

Carmen Joyce McGray Purdy 1948 – 2012 Carmen Joyce McGray Purdy passed away peacefully after a lengthily illness with her family present at Willow Cottage in Bethany Meadows on Thursday, April 12, 2012. Carmen grew up on Canadian Air Force bases around Canada. She moved to Edmonton in 1965, became a respiratory therapist and met Gordon. They married in 1967, had three children and began working with Christian Literature Crusade. Over the next two decades, Carmen worked with Gordon, living in Ontario, travelling throughout Canada, the US and overseas, sharing the gospel through literature. When they left the ministry, she became a commercial pilot and then started a career working as a realtor in Kingston, ON. Her passion for learning was evident as she continued taking classes in sewing, cooking, painting and card-making. Carmen and Gordon moved to her family home in Nova Scotia in 1993. There they picked up the family tradition of farming with goats and spinning the hair for wool and, as well, supported an aging aunt. She and Gordon moved back to Alberta in 1995 where they enjoyed spending time with their children and grandchildren. Carmen is survived by her husband Gordon; and three children Kimberlee (Todd) of Three Hills, Roxanne (Len) of Camrose and Kirt (Laurie) of Abbotsford. She also leaves behind her father Fred in Halifax, Nova Scotia; and her brother David from Victoria, BC. As well, to cherish her memory are her six grandchildren, one grandsonin-law and one great-grandchild. She was predeceased by her mother, Hope, in 1959. The prayers, kind words, encouragement and support over the course of Carmen’s illness are appreciated and gratefully acknowledged. A special thank you to the staff in Willow at Bethany Meadows for their exceptional care and comfort of Carmen and the family throughout her time there. A public viewing was held at Weber Funeral Home in Camrose on Monday, April 16 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. A memorial service in celebration of Carmen’s life was held on Tuesday, April 17 at Camrose Church of God at 3:00 p.m. If desired, donations may be made in Carmen’s name to World Vision of Canada.
