Spring takes flight!

A sure sign of spring in the northern parts is the return of a variety of waterfowl to our lakes, creeks, rivers and ponds. Hearing the familiar honking or quacking, seeing “V” shaped formations overhead or spotting a flock of playful fowl brings back a bounce to our steps and joy to our hearts with the thought that warm temperatures, green grass and budding trees are just around the corner.

Inside... A variety of merchandise and services, including: Farm equipment and supplies, auctions, vehicles, election, realty, building supplies, spring cleaning supplies, home décor, banking and more!

Programs to improve skills By Lori Larsen

For 30 years, the Camrose Adult Learning Council (CALC) has been assisting adults and families with programs and services to meet learning and employable needs of adults and provide family literacy options in Camrose and area. Funded by a grant through Alberta Advanced Education, CALC is continually trying to improve upon the mandate of advanced education to meet current needs of adult learners. Camrose Adult Learning Council director, Diane McLaren explained, “The possibilities within our mandate have changed a little bit and we have some new programs coming up that are exciting.” McLaren further explained that the mandate of learning councils has always been literacy and learning, with a focus on trying to bridge that gap from high school to secondary education. “We are here for people who didn’t finish high school and adults who are now thinking they would like to take some training or go to college or tech school but need their GED or specific courses or need to boost some specific skills such as math, reading or writing.” She indicated that a few years ago, a lot of people came in from jobs related to the oil field with up to and more than 20 years of experience and were suddenly required to have their diploma from high school. “One of our mandates is to provide that bridge for people, or if people want to acquire a better or different job. It is a matter of improving your skills or taking a couple courses.” CALC also provides services for career evaluation and planning, practical writing and reading skills for life and work, trades entrance exams preparation, resume preparation and working on job search skills. Essential skills

WOMEN’S DAY

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Camrose Adult Learning Council hosted a day of painting for the soul in honour of International Women’s Day held on March 8. Attendee and budding artist Aline Wenig puts some finishing touches on her masterpiece.

Along with providing programming for adults to succeed in the workforce and tend to post secondary education, learning councils are also charged with providing services and programs that ensure people have essential skills in order to be successful in life. Approximately 15 years ago the government identified nine essential skills necessary to succeed not only in the workplace but in life, including: reading, document use, writing skills, numeracy (math calculations), thinking skills, oral communication, working with others, digital technology and continuous learning.

“Literacy organizations are a perfect fit for that,” said McLaren. “People need them every day and in their work.” CALC is offering an Essential Skills training program on April 16 to June 6, Tuesday to Thursday 9 a.m. until noon (week of May 6 to 10 will run 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.) “This is a brand new course we will be piloting; it is going to have some literacy skills, basic math, reading, document use and writing and also a bunch of essential work skills and some career related skill training.” The course is being funded through Alberta Works and is free. All participants need to do is a telephone intake assessment interview. Offerings

McLaren went on to say that a basic knowledge of technology is vital for all people today. “Everywhere you go you have to use technology. “We are going to be hiring a new tech specialist position and offering some courses on basic keyboarding, computer skills and word processing.” The new tech specialist will also be offering courses on how to understand and navigate devices for people who came into technology later in life (aged 55 years plus). “A lot of people (55 plus) didn’t necessarily have to use computers in their work, so now when they want to be able to use their devices, they lack skill in that area and if you don’t know anything about it, it can be very daunting.” Another area CALC is exploring is finding fun and engaging ways for people to learn basic math skills used in everyday life. “One of the courses we are looking at is related to cooking. There is a lot of math used in cooking. “I think it is going to be a really fun and interesting way to learn how to cook, and not just regular meals but baking, bread making, preserving. As well, it will include planning and organizing skills around cooking which has a lot to do with how well people eat.” McLaren indicated that CALC will be working on courses that offer people simple and effective ways to organize their homes, personal property and their lives. “A lot of things related to finance planning and organizing tend to be complicated and seem like a lot of work, so we are trying to make those things for people simpler and easier so they are more likely to do them.” Continued on page 17

JACKIE LOVELY Your local United Conservative Candidate Campaign Office: 1040, 6708 48 Avenue, Camrose

Phone: 780-782-4047 Leadership to revitalize our rural economy With a wealth of experience in business and strong rural roots, Jackie Lovely knows what it takes to revitalize the economy in our region and across Alberta. As a successful small business owner who went on to earn her Master’s in Business Administration, Jackie has what it takes to work long hours and be accountable. She also gives back to the community, volunteering with Rotary as well as her local Chamber of Commerce, and hosts dozens of international students, providing ESL classes to those who seek to improve their language skills. Let’s put her experience to use for our families and communities, and

Can we count on your support? Get involved by contacting us

Jackie Lovely, UCP 1. Bill 1 of a UCP government will be the carbon tax repeal act. Every dime currently being collected through the carbon tax comes from Alberta families and employers. It’s your money, not the government’s. Eliminating the Notley carbon tax means government will collect about $1.4 billion less of your money. The carbon tax takes money away from the important charities, hospitals, churches and schools. Scrapping the carbon tax is one part of our plan to reignite the economy and get Alberta back to work. Other steps include: the job creation tax cut, estimated to create 55,000 jobs, red tape cutting by one-third, sending a signal that Alberta is “open for business” again. 2. A UCP government will maintain or increase health spending and will maintain a universally acceptable, publicly funded health care system. 3. Should the United Conservatives form government, Albertans will know that no, the government of Alberta will no longer refer to its own province as the “embarrassing cousins no one wants to talk about.” A UCP government will not allow for provinces like BC and Quebec to prevent pipelines, while reaping the benefits of equalization. A UCP government will not allow Justin Trudeau to “phase out the oil sands.” 4. It’s time Alberta had a government that will proudly stand up for us citizens, for its workers and for his livelihood. It’s time we had a government that will stand up for Alberta! There is an oil boom currently happening in Texas, Colorado and Montana.

Alberta has dropped from 14th to 44th best place to invest in energy. Justin Trudeau has promised to “phase out the oil sands;” Notley has said nothing to condemn these remarks. The UCP will shut off the taps to BC if they continue to prevent pipelines. 5. A UCP government will pass an Open For Business Act to combat the job crisis in Alberta today. With more than 189,000 unemployed Albertans, and 48,000 job losses in the last four months alone. It’s more clear than ever that a new plan is needed to get Alberta back to work! We will retain the general $15 minimum wage, introduce a youth job creation wage of $13 for workers who are under 17 years of age or younger, in order to incentivize the creation of first time jobs for unemployed dependent teenagers. 6. We will return to the holiday pay qualifying period. The Open for Business Act would restore workplace democracy and bring balance back to labour legislation by providing legal support all union workers in order to better understand and exercise their rights. 7. Unemployment has risen in six of the eight last months, how do you plan to get people back to work full time, or better paying jobs? Successfully fighting to have our pipeline approved and built will jump start our economy and get Albertans back to work again. 8. Our goal is to form government and turn our economy around. There is no better way to guarantee our future than by investing in education.

9. The UCP has a 13 point education plan. Maintain or increase education funding, while seeking greater efficiency by reducing administrative overhead and pushing resources to front line teachers. Check Lovely’s campaign for more points. 10. We will reduce red tape and get people working again.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster United Conservative Party Camrose candidate Jackie Lovely, centre, and her supporters opened an office on March 22.

Wes Caldwell, Freedom Party 1. I am not in favour of the carbon tax, for several reasons. The first is that carbon dioxide is not pollution-it is a natural part of the environment and necessary for our survival. Secondly, the carbon tax unfairly penalizes the energy industry and ignores other serious threats to our environment, such as mineral mining and manufacturing that can release serious contaminants such as heavy metals into our air and water. Thirdly, it unfairly penalizes the poor who are less capable of absorbing the added costs to their heating, lighting, transportation and

food costs. I do not believe that the carbon tax is fit for purpose, so I would remove it and not replace it. However, the federal government has coercively applied carbon pricing to other provinces that adamantly abstained, so that may play a role in the reconsideration of our place in confederation. 2. I am a strong believer in a blended system of health care delivery, where private and public systems operate side-by-side and both must meet stringent standards. A blended system maintains universal access to health care for small communities while allowing healthy com-

petition to incentivize innovation where larger markets can sustain it. Frontline workers are best situated to assess and optimize delivery options, if given the freedom to do so, and market forces will reward providers that align their health care services to the needs and priorities of users. Allowing Albertans to choose the providers that suit individual priorities would improve service delivery without additional government management, help take the strain off our existing system, and shorten wait times. This would benefit all of us. Continued on page 10


The SPRING SUPER BOOSTER, April 9, 2019 – Page 8

Kevin Smook, Alberta Party 1. An Alberta Party Government will cancel the NDP carbon tax for families and businesses and instead establish a more effective carbon pricing regime requiring large emitters to take responsibility. Alberta families will no longer pay the carbon tax on home heating, or gasoline and propane used in vehicles and heating. We don’t have a choice on whether to heat our homes in the winter and it’s unfair to punish Albertans for driving our cars when we are geographically spread out. We will encourage the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by large emitters, those who emit more than 100,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas. Revenues from large emitters will continue to flow to Energy Efficiency Alberta, to support individuals and small businesses to make positive changes in energy efficiency and reduce their carbon footprints. In addition, the existing NDP carbon tax will be eliminated for non-profits and municipal governments. 2. The Alberta Party supports publicly funded, publicly delivered health care. We will create a wellness strategy focused on mental health, long term care and chronic conditions like dementia that will help keep people healthier and allow them to live ful-

filling lives in their community for as long as possible. The Alberta Party will also empower frontline health care professionals to make changes that enhance service delivery, improve patient outcomes and reduce costs. And we will conduct a review to eliminate duplication and redundancies between AHS and Alberta Health. 3. I don’t see oil and gas as a fading industry, as the world needs our oil and oil derived products. However, for too long, we have relied on the United States as the major consumer of our products. The Alberta Party will take bold actions to energize the development of more refining and petrochemical processing in Alberta and generate greater value from Alberta’s oil and gas resources. This includes an investment in CanaPux (bitumen pucks), which could revolutionize the oil sands by being exported by rail or other methods. As the MLA for Camrose, I will encourage providing tax credits for renewable energy companies for a determined length of time to be able to further develop the renewable energy industry. This will come from Energy Efficiency Alberta through the carbon pricing on large emitters. 4. The Alberta Party will continue to push Otta-

Kevin Smook

wa for the approval of pipelines to move our product to market. But instead of putting all our eggs in one basket, we will come up with other programs such as the CanaPux proposal, moving bitumen pucks by rail or other methods. In addition, Leader Stephen Mandel has announced an Alberta Party government would take bold steps to secure long-term coastal access for Alberta products, by bypassing BC and securing the right-of-way and approvals for an Alberta-to-Alaska railway and pipeline corridor. 5. Over the past three years, the Alberta Party is the only party to provide a shadow budget showing Albertans our financial path. We believe in living within our means. We will get control of spending, downsize via attrition, develop a thoughtful financial plan, work to eliminate debt servicing and balance the budget sooner rather than later.

6./7. The Alberta Party will establish a Jobs First Plan to expand the provincial economy by $16 billion and generate 65,000 jobs for Albertans. We are going to make it easier for Albertans to provide for their families again. Alberta’s fiscal framework will be adjusted to attract private investment and stimulate job creation. The Alberta general corporate tax rate will be reduced from 12 to 10 per cent to restore Alberta’s place as the most competitive jurisdiction in Canada on corporate tax rates. The Alberta small business deduction will double from $500,000 to $1,000,000 rising by $125,000 over each of four years. The capital cost allowance in Alberta will be adjusted over a four year period to 100 per cent for all new investment. An Alberta Party government will also establish the Business Certainty Guarantee, giving businesses and investors confidence that the overall costs of doing business in Alberta will either stay the same or go down during the four year term of the government. 8. The Alberta Party has proven in the past that we can work with other parties to move the province forward. A good idea is a good idea and should be considered regardless of where it came from. 9. An Alberta Party government will double the number of educational

assistants with a $230 million boost to help improve learning for all children. Current annual funding for inclusive education will be increased to $690 million per year and will be earmarked to school boards so that it is only used for inclusive education. Improvements will include the creation of a new independent learning assessment agency under the Ministry of Early Childhood, performing comprehensive testing of students who are identified with potential learning challenges. An additional funding date of January 15th will be established to provide school boards with additional funding for any students who have arrived from outside Canada after the school year has already begun. These measures will be in addition to ongoing efforts to reduce class sizes and build more schools. 10. The Alberta Party will govern much differently than that NDP has. The tone will be set at the top. Stephen Mandel is the only leader of the three major parties with a business background. While he maintains his entrepreneurial roots, Mandel also has a solid social track record. The former Mayor of Edmonton knows what it means to serve the public, knows how to develop and implement policy and how to use tax dollars wisely.

Morgan Bamford, NDP

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Camrose riding NDP candidate Morgan Bamford addressed about 100 people when his office opened on March 30.

1. I am in favour of our made-in-Alberta Climate Leadership Plan, including the carbon levy, because I know we need to take leading action on climate change and grow the economy at the same time. As a result of the plan, we are attracting billions of dollars of investment in renewable energy in Alberta and those investments will only continue to grow. 100 per cent of the revenues taken in are being recycled into the economy with direct benefits to Alber-

tans – that includes carbon levy rebates to middle, and lower income Albertans, with about 60 per cent of households receiving full or partial rebates. In Camrose, our government has invested in solar panels on our recreation centre, significantly reducing energy usage, as well as established the Camrose Connector bus service to Edmonton with the City of Camrose and Red Arrow. These are examples of how we are investing in renewable energy and transit in

the spirit of the Climate Leadership Plan. 2. In Alberta, everyone should have access to the care they need, whether they wear a fur coat, or no coat at all. My mom was a registered nurse, and in the early 1990s I attended rallies with her against Ralph Klein’s reckless cuts to public health care which hurt families. My wife is a graduating RN working in Killam and together we know the importance of public health care. As part of Rachel Notley’s team, I’m

running to protect publiclyfunded, publicly-delivered, universal health care. We’ve committed to not bringing in health care premiums like the conservatives proposed in the last election; and we’re standing up against risky experiments like bringing two-tier, American-style health care to Alberta. 3. Alberta is still a world leader in energy, which is why Rachel Notley is fighting to get our product to tidewater with a pipeline as well as by rail. We’re also working to diversify the economy with incentives by doubling the incentives for petrochemical and upgrading projects. Notley’s plan for more economic diversification will create 70,000 new jobs over the next decade and ensure we get the full value and full potential out of our oil and gas resources. Thanks to the Climate Leadership plan, Alberta is a leader in renewable energy as well. 4. Notley is leading the fight to build pipelines. Despite setbacks, Rachel’s tough but thoughtful approach has brought us closer than ever to securing market access and a better price for the resources we all own. Our work to build support across the country, like

the Keep Canada Working campaign, has built majority support for the TMX pipeline across the country, including in BC. 5. Rachel is fighting for good jobs and an economy that works for everyone. That’s why she cut taxes for small businesses, while ensuring the super wealthy started to pay their fair share. It’s why she invested in targeted incentives for job creators, while raising the minimum wage to help working Albertans share in our province’s prosperity. We will protect the things that matter to families, like health care and education, and balance the budget by 2023-24, without making reckless, hurtful cuts. 6. Notley’s plan for our economic recovery is working, and thanks to a focus on jobs and diversification, 80,000 jobs have been created in the past two years. We know there’s more work to do to ensure that recovery reaches every kitchen table, which is why we are continuing to invest in diversifying our economy, while maintaining Alberta as the lowest-taxed jurisdiction in the country.

The SPRING SUPER BOOSTER, April 9, 2019 – Page 9

Sandra Kim, Alberta Advantage Party 1. Great question. I am not in favor of a carbon tax/ levy, for the simple reason that they do not work. Since BC imposed their carbon tax five out of six years, the CO2 levels went up. I truly believe that there are much better ways to fight Global CO2 levels that are not in the form of taxation, but in the form of diversifying our technologies to developing countries that are the biggest contributors to Global emissions. 2. The reality now is that we already have some privately delivered health care in this province. Think of physiotherapy, elective surgeries and if you want a knee replacement; people are already getting them privately in other countries. So, it is happening whether we like

Bonnie Tanton

1. I am in favour of keeping our carbon tax dollars in Alberta, where we can allocate that money in the best interests of Albertans. If we repeal Alberta’s carbon tax, then we’re subject to a federal carbon tax. Under a federal system we won’t have the same ability to direct funds. That said, I believe we should weigh the idea of a reduction in carbon pricing for individual Albertans against maintaining (and gradually increasing) the price and offering rebates to some, but certainly not all, Albertans. I would like to discuss the carbon tax and its impact in detail with the people of this riding to determine what would best serve them. Even though Alberta is not one of the biggest carbon producers in the world, we still need to do our part for the environment - recycling, combining errands into one trip, shopping locally instead of driving to the city, as well as holding large emitters accountable. 2. Publicly funded health care is a cornerstone of Alberta. Our citizens never have to worry about choosing between buying groceries and going to the doc-

it or not. AAP wants to find where our own system is failing and inefficient and fix it. It could be a process issue and not necessarily a funding issue. 3. I will make a bet that the car you drove 10 years ago was way more inefficient than the one you would drive now. Technologies are already organically improving our consumer market for more efficient products. There will come a time when oil specifically, will be in less of a demand, but not in my lifetime. Not as long as China, India and Africa are expanding. On a side note: most of India literally uses dried cow manure to heat homes and cook with, leaving a massive carbon footprint. Providing them with natural gas will be a better technol-

ogy and will improve emissions greatly. 4. It is the job of the provincial government to lobby the federal government for the benefit of our province. I truly believe that the short term pain of reducing or restricting the flow of Alberta oil and natural gas either East or West, would effectively demonstrate the importance of Alberta resources for the country as a whole. 5. No MLA who is not in government (not opposi-

tor. We need to be able to ensure a standard of care for Albertans and we don’t want to be in a situation where profit is more important than quality care. Jason Kenney staged a photo op in a laundromat a few weeks ago to promise to renege on the government decision to upgrade AHS laundry services rather than contract that service out to save money. Privatizing this service to save $200 million sounds good, but how will this impact rural and small centre medical facilities? Linens and other washables are high-use items in hospitals. If that service is contracted out, where will the laundry go? How will the contractor ensure that there is always an adequate supply of clean laundry? How will they guard against contamination in transport? How many trucks will have to be mobilized to pick up and drop off laundry? How many people currently employed in laundry service will lose their jobs? We need to be aware of the potential real consequences of cutting or privatizing health services, particularly in rural Alberta. 3. Oil and gas is still very much a necessary industry. We aren’t ready or able to fully transition away from oil and gas now and won’t be for some time. That said, we should be actively working toward making alternative energy options available and affordable. Reviving our oil and gas industry and finding ways to get our product to tidewater would bring in the financial resources

we need to help diversify our energy sector. 4. We need to find ways to build these pipelines. As a government, we should approach the private contractors who were previously on board with the Energy East pipeline to determine what we can do to reignite that project. We need to offer the support of our government to instill confidence in investors and help resolve any regulatory issues. 5. We need to be judicious about our spending as a government while still providing services to Albertans. Diversifying our industry will bring new revenue streams into our province and help us to avoid the boom/bust economy Alberta has lived by for so long. This would enable us to maintain a relatively steady economy and give us the ability to fund services as well as pay down our debt. 6. It may be more efficient to try to attract new business to Alberta, rather than try to woo back companies that have left; although open discourse with those who have left would tell us what it would take for them to return. What we do know is that socially regressive policies tend to repel investment, as happened in North Carolina in 2016, when government there passed a discriminatory transgender bathroom bill, which directly resulted in nearly $4 billion in lost revenue. 7. Instead of funding “war rooms” to promote oil and gas, I propose that money be spent to accelerate our orphan well recla-

Sandra Kim

tion) will really know what our books look like until we can change the government. We (The AAP) believe that before spending increases dramatically, there should be an examination of processes first. There may be ways to greatly reduce spending by just re-evaluating how things are done. The next step is to do a “Wants vs Needs” evaluation. This has huge potential to find money that will be put to debt reduction. 6. Removing the carbon levy/tax and rejecting the Federal Carbon Pricing would help investors feel more confident in Alberta. Businesses look for strong policy makers that can stabilize an economy. No government can manage world pricing, but the responses they make to it can create chaos or provide stability. 7. Reducing corporate taxes helps. The truth is that it will not happen

overnight. No party has a magic wand. By reducing regulatory red tape and easing taxation, private business will be able to manage, stabilize and then grow. It will take time. 8. Since the AAP allows for independent voting of our MLA’s, they are not bound by party politics. This gives greater freedom to work with all members of the House and have direct representation of the people of our ridings. 9. Education is key to the future. Right now, our students need to be solid in education fundamentals of literacy, numeracy, critical thinking and basic skills. This is not necessarily requiring more money, as a change in education delivery. A child that can read and write, can do anything. Our students right now are failing in basic academics, that is a scary future if it continues. 10. Reduce it!

Bonnie Tanton, Independent mation program and put our experienced oilfield workers back on job sites. Orphan well reclamation is important for our environment and we have a lot of people in this province who would like to get back to work. As a career and academic advisor, I’m also in favour of retraining incentives and helping Albertans determine alternative career options that are actually available to them. 8. As an Independent candidate, I won’t form government, but I will do everything I can to be informed and to collaborate with the other parties. As an Independent, I will be able to choose which policies to support based on how they impact Camrose constituents, regardless of party origin. 9. I believe that we are under-utilizing the capabilities of the Internet in terms of delivering course material in our education system. In rural and small high schools, courses such as Math 31, 30-level sciences, and French 30 may only be offered once in a student’s high school career; if they aren’t prepared to take that course at that time, they can take it as an accelerated summer course (usually involves travel), by module (independent learning), or miss out. I propose that realtime virtual classrooms, with k nowledgeable teachers, be introduced so that students from

around the province could have the opportunity to take these courses in a collaborative learning environment in the same time-frame and with the same amount of teacher instruction as an inschool Alberta Education course. If the objective is quality learning and retention as opposed to simply achieving a passing grade, then we need to offer this kind of creative strategy to encourage student success. This virtual classroom standard could also be used to reduce lost instructional time due to cold/snow days etc., by allowing teachers to connect with their classes and keep lessons on schedule even if the school is closed. 10. I’m in favour of examining existing regulations for outdated or unnecessary policies, as there is no doubt that a review is needed. However, any cutting of red tape would require careful consideration in order to preserve the safety of Albertans, our food, our water supply, etc. Streamlining regulations would likely remove roadblocks to corporate investment in our province, but we need to be careful not to inadvertently hurt Albertans with sweeping regulatory changes.

3. The energy industry is not fading anywhere in the world except in Alberta, where it has been actively discouraged. In fact, I believe that the industry is expanding in other jurisdictions and old oilfields are once again reaching record production. If we can restore rationality to the conversation then the antagonism against Alberta industry will fade and it will, once again, prove to be a benefit to the provincial economy and a support to local communities. In the future I believe that our central location on the continent and the plentiful energy available to us will enable the diversification of our economy into other industries, such as the value added processing of raw resources and the manufacturing of consumer goods for export. 4. Alberta has tried several strategies to get pipelines approved, from instituting some of the

toughest environmental regulations, to public relations programs supporting the image of our energy industry. Most recently we submitted to paying a sin tax on the energy we produce (the Carbon Tax), which was accepted on the basis that it would build the necessary goodwill for our energy projects to be approved. This strategy has also failed and we seem to be no closer to having our oil shipped today than we were four years ago. I believe the last option we have left is the hardest; it may be necessary for us to reconsider our place in confederation. Contrary to the spirit of our existence as a nation, barriers have been put in place that oppose our interests and our only leverage to mitigate the situation may be to withhold our financial contributions from the rest of Canada. This would not be an easy challenge, but it would reward us with a greater say in our own

Wes Caldwell

prosperity and, maybe, the respect of the rest of the nation. 5. I do not believe that a government should run a long-term debt since the cost of debt servicing diverts funds away from the services we value. The Freedom Conservative Party tabled an Alternative Budget for 2018-19 which detailed a path to balancing the budget within one year without cuts to frontline services such as doctors, nurses, police, fire protection or teachers. I recommend that you download a copy of the Alternative Budget (a link to it can be found

on my website) and see if you agree with me that it is both aggressive and fair. 6. To enable business growth, we will make it easier for them to profit in Alberta. We will cut large business tax to 10% and completely eliminate the small business tax. We will also cut the regulatory burden on business and shorten project approval times. I believe that once business knows that it can profit within Alberta, it will once again begin to grow here. I believe that lower operating costs will make it possible for businesses to flourish in the smaller communities throughout the Camrose riding, which will diversify their economies and increase services in rural areas. 7. The Freedom Conservative Party is dedicated to developing Alberta specific solutions to unemployment. For example, we will take the administration of Employment Insurance from the Federal Government and create a flexible Alberta Workers’

Alberta Party leader, Stephen Mandel, promised an Alberta Party government will bring in new standards to protect taxpayers and provide more open democracy for Albertans. “This vindictive legislation has created a huge mess and needlessly tied up the court system. Candidates were forced to fight overreaching legislation and unreasonable penalties in court, while the Notley government slashed funding for opposition parties and used AHS facilities to campaign at the taxpayer’s expense. An Alberta Party government will bring in new standards to protect democracy, to stop politicians from weaponizing the government for political purposes,” said Mandel. “I truly believe the Alberta Party is the right choice to lead Alberta into the future and I am working hard to meet and hear the concerns of the residents of the Camrose Constituency in my quest to become the MLA. It’s time to set aside divisive politics, and instead choose a party that will lead the province in a positive way,” said Kevin Smook, Alberta Party candidate for the Camrose Riding.

Insurance (AWI) program. The AWI would be tied to each worker and would accrue to them throughout their employment in Alberta. It will include allowances for retraining when needed and, upon retirement, the balance of the fund would be applied to a worker’s pension. Please see my website for further details on our plan to Get Alberta Back to Work. 8. The Freedom Conservative Party believes in free votes and candidates are encouraged to support any policies or programs that are in the interests of their constituency. I will cooperate with any elected government, treating each motion on the merits of its benefit to the Camrose Constituency. 9. The Freedom Conservative Party is confident that there are significant savings that can be found by reducing redundancy in the civil service and minor pay cuts (including a five per cent reduction in MLA pay).

9. We believe that those savings will be sufficient for the full funding of our front line services including the education system without increasing the load on teachers. To encourage innovation

within the education system we would allow local school boards to develop their own curriculums and ensure the parents have choice and control over their children’s schooling. We respect the right of schools to observe their own religious and cultural beliefs without discrimination and would provide equal funding for all students in public, private and separate schools, along

with guaranteed funding for those who choose to homeschool. 10. I have worked in industry as an environmental professional for over a decade and I have become exasperated by the increasing bureaucracy of the Alberta government.

where project approval times have become completely unpredictable. Business, and especially small businesses in the natural resources sector, cannot afford to navigate the regulatory nightmare that they now face and it is hurting our local economies. To fix this I propose a transfer of responsibility for project assessment away from civil service and place it onto professionals

in the private sector (such as Professional Engineers and Professional Biologists). I believe that we are already on a regulatory path that would allow this and that the professional organizations, with their legislated responsibility for ethics and accountability, would continue to protect the public interest while dropping approval wait times to a matter of weeks.

6. I’m also very excited about some of the new supports we’ll be making available to small businesses if re-elected. This includes the creation of a new Small Business Investment office to streamline regulation and support new business growth. 7. Job loss is an extremely stressful experience

that no one deserves to go through. These job numbers fluctuate month-to-month. While our economic growth is leading the country, and that growth is fuelled by private-sector jobs, we know that there’s more work to do.

Alberta Political Accountability Hub offers easy access By Lori Larsen

On April 3, members of the Camrose and District Chamber of Commerce and guests heard a presentation about the Alberta Political Accountability Hub by founder, Wyatt Tanton. Tanton created APAH, an online service, to assist Albertans in holding the Alberta government accountable by providing information to educate users. Tanton, originally from Camrose, most recently attended the University of Montreal where he studied political science, taking the past semester off to develop the APAH. “The purpose of the APAH is to have a non-partisan perspective on selected categories, get people interested in politics and give them a level of access that we don’t have today. “APAH is broken down into five categories that

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Wyatt Tanton presents information on the Alberta Political Accountability Hub to members of Camrose and District Chamber of Commerce and guests on April 3.

include: MLS’s (representatives), legislation, parties, committees and elections,” explained Tanton. “The first section on representatives contains information on each individual MLA.” There are both written and video accounts, details on the member themselves, what they have done previously and how you can contact them including all forms of social media. The section on legislation is designed to inform Albertans specific facts on the legislation being passed, without commentary or opinion. “People don’t want to read legislation because it is written in a very particular, legal style and is very hard to read if you are not well versed. APAH makes it easy to read in plain English.” The Parties section

provides information on the histories of all parties. “Every party has the same type of explanation no matter how long they have been around,” noted Tanton. “If you want to learn how they stand on policies and stack up against one another, we have that information lined up too.” The section for committees provides information on when the committees are meeting, who the committee members are, what each specific committee does and what committees in general do. The final section, Elections, allows users to search by riding or by party to find out who they chose to support in the 2019 election.

Let me play out this scenario for you…

You get into an accident. Your insurance company says, “Take your vehicle to so and so.” But you say, “I want to take it to The Auto Shoppe – I know Jackie Rae is the celebrity apprentice there, and she wouldn’t lead me astray!” All joking aside, where you take your vehicle after an accident is the most important decision you can make. Two reasons:

to haul your grain

Number 1: You need to take it to a shop certified by the world’s leading auto manufacturers.

Too busy? Lack of equipment or manpower? We offer two dependable trucks with highly experienced staff. Over 58 years of experience moving grain from field or bin. You can trust and rely on us.

Number 2: You need someone you can trust, and that’s The Auto Shoppe in Camrose.

Mandy Richter Photography Young Camrosian Janaya Iverson proudly wears the Miss Teenage Alberta sash, as she moves forward to compete in the Miss Teenage Canada pageant.

Miss Teenage Alberta By Lori Larsen

Being on stage taking part in the highly competitive world of pageants, not only takes time and dedication, but also a great degree of self confidence and lot of mental preparation. Local pageant contestant Janaya Iverson, 14-year-old, Charlie Killam School Grade 8 student, is making her mark on the stage and throughout the community as a young lady who not only takes pride in her participation in pageants, but uses the opportunity to create awareness about her platform on Muscular Dystrophy and encourage other young people to follow their dreams. On Feb. 23 and 24, Janaya competed and was successful in winning the title Miss Teenage Alberta held in Calgary. As a result of that competition Janaya has won the right, along with 17 other Alberta girls selected, to move forward in nationals. “There will be approximately 10 girls from each province to represent in Nationals at the Miss Teenage Canada that will be held in Toronto(Ont) on July 9 to 15,” said Janaya. “All pageant title holders have to have a platform around health or social issues,” she further explained. Janaya chose Muscular Dystrophy, a disorder that affects the movement of muscles. “I chose this platform because my older sister has Muscular Dystrophy.” As Miss Teenage Alberta, Janaya will use her title in a positive way to not only promote her platform but also help people with disabilities. Janaya said that many people are blind sided by the perception of pageants often portrayed on television. “From previous pageants I have won, I have been inspired by the people who have crowned me and the winners above me. I believe this is important because we are the next generation and we need to make it better and keep building from what we have already, and inspiring generations below us and keep a positive environment.” She smiled when she said that younger girls in her own school now approach her and talk to her about her experiences. In a manner, perhaps beyond her years, Janaya remarked that she does not allow any negative connotations or feedback from others about pageants affect her. She is happy to denounce any myths bout pageants and, in fact, is quick to explain all the positive aspects of competing. “I get to meet lots of friends from all over Can-

ada and when I attend the pageant in Toronto I will be rooming with another girl, possibly from Toronto, or somewhere else in Canada.” The actual pageants include competition in the areas of public speaking, interviews, modeling, swimsuit and evening gown. “When I go to Toronto there will be a photoshoot portion where I will be judged on how photogenic I am, and they also judge contestants on how responsible we are and how we conduct ourselves.” The contestants social media communication is also scrutinized by pageant officials and judges. In describing the characteristics of title holders Janaya said. “They are looking for pageant title holders who can be responsible, are humble about their title, passionate about it and can be a real role model for teens all across Canada. “I believe a good role model is someone who can inspire others, of all ages, and somebody who people can look up to, someone who is a good person who spreads kindness and positivity.” On Sunday March 3, family, friends and community members joined Janaya at a meet and greet event promoting her ongoing success. “It is amazing the support I get from this community,” said Janaya. “I have many sponsors who have helped me throughout and now the community support is huge.” As well, organizations throughout Camrose and area are beginning to request her presence at upcoming events. Keeping busy is an understatement for this young lady. She attends school and maintains good grades, dances 32 hours a week, all the while attending events and fundraisers as Miss Teenage Alberta to help promote her campaign and platform initiative. If successful in acquiring the title of Miss Teenage Canada in July, Janaya would reign all over Canada for a year, then attend other pageants including some international ones, in preparation for her goal of the title Miss Universe Canada. On a final note and spoken like a true teenager, Janaya said she is just an everyday teenager when she attends school in her jeans and t-shirt, but when she is representing her title she looks and acts the part. “I am very honoured to represent my title, and I am very proud of it. Every morning I wake up and I just can’t believe it, but then I get even more inspired to do other things.”

Spring Special

March 22

Due in part to the excellent information provided by the concerned rural resident, investigators located a vehicle stuck in the snow with footprints leaving from the area of the vehicle. Queries revealed that the license plate had been reported stolen out of Lacombe County, Sylvan Lake area. Wetaskiwin police dog services and investigators from the neighboring detachments of Camrose, Ponoka and Maskwacis responded to assist. The dog team apprehended one male while the second male was located by assisting members. “This is another excellent example of collaborative efforts by vigilant rural residents, several detachment’s investigators and Police Dog Services that resulted in the apprehension of individuals engaged in rural property crime,” said Sergeant Bruce Holliday, Bashaw Detachment Commander.

Soccer player gives it her all By Lori Larsen

Entering her second year securing a position to play soccer for Team Alberta North, hometown girl Julia Makoloski was once again selected to the U14 Alberta North Provincial Soccer Team, coming up against the top players from Edmonton and surrounding area. At the young age of three, Julia began her, thus far, pretty amazing soccer career in Camrose. When she was eight, she decided to play for Sherwood Park Phoenix and she excelled there for four years. She now plays for St. Albert Impact and along with team members garnered an undefeated past season playing as an underage team in the U15 Tier 1 division.

Julia Makoloski

When asked how she maintains such a high level of play, all the while being a well rounded young person, Julia said, “Hard work, determination, and many sacrifices have been faced. But the fun doesn’t stop here. Alongside playing for my club, my next goal is to make the Regional Excellence training program (REX) in Edmonton come the 2019-20 winter season.” The tenacious young soccer player will be returning to Vancouver later to compete in the 2019 Whitecaps FC Academy scouting combine. This program provides the opportunity to compete with top teams from across Canada at a high level of soccer and to influence and identify high potential players at the U14 age group within the Whitecaps Football Club and MLS Academy Centres. One might say Julia, no doubt, has her eye on the ball when it comes to setting and achieving her goals.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Author Chris Hedges, left, discusses his views with Ian Wilson, director of the Chester Ronning Centre and the audience at the Lougheed Centre.

Chris Hedges will tell you outright that the United States has lost its way for several decades. He held a Chester Ronning 2019 distinguished lecture on Religion and Diplomacy on March 26 in the Lougheed Performing Arts Centre. “The issue before us is death. Not only our individual death, but our collective death. We have begun the great mass extinction driven by our 150-year binge on fossil fuels. The gluttony of grim statistics are not unfamiliar to anyone. We are pouring greenhouse gases into the atmosphere at 10 times the rate of the mass extinction known as the Great Dying, which occurred 250 million years ago,” he explained. “The glaciers in Alaska alone are losing an estimated 75 billion tons of ice every year. The oceans, which absorb 90 per cent of the excess heat trapped by greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are warming and acidifying, melting the polar ice caps and resulting in rising sea levels and oxygen starved ocean dead cells.” Chris is a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist. He was a foreign correspondent for the New York Times for 15 years, has authored 11 books and serves as a visiting lecturer at Princeton University. His Princeton course is held at a state prison in New Jersey and brings together inmates and Princeton students. In 2014, he was ordained as a Presbyterian minister for his prison work. “Some 150 to 200 species of plants, insects, birds and mammals are going

extinct every 24 hours, 1,000 times the natural or background rate. This pace of extinction is greater than anything the world has experienced, since the disappearance of the dinosaur five million years ago. Ultimately, the speed will exhilarate the rate of devastation and there will be nothing we can do to withhold the obliteration. Past extinction were categorized as abrupt warming between six and seven degrees Celsius. We are barrelling towards those numbers. Initially, they predict a 70 per cent die off of the human species leading to total death.” Then he went on to talk about doom and gloom. “The corporate forces that have commodified the world for profit have also commodified human beings. We are as expendable to global corporations as the barrier reef. These corporations and elites, which have orchestrated the largest amount of wealth and power in human history with the globes richest one per cent owning half of the world’s wealth, which forces us to kneel before the dictators of the global market place. They have seized control of our governments, extinguishing democracy, corrupting law and building alliances with neo-fascist authoritarians.” His most recent book America, the Farewell Tour talks about the death of the United States. “If unchecked, (the wealthy) will create more human misery and evil of both Nazism and Stalinism combined,” he added.

Hedges asks us to fight for rights Continued from page 23

Chris spent nearly two decades reporting as a journalist in Central America, the Middle East, Africa and the Balkans, and worked 15 years with the New York Times. “Capitalism rewards those of whom relationships are casual and temporary. Relationships under capitalism are mercenary. They are part of the scheme of personal advancement and part of the oily manipulation of others. To advance it is necessary to build and discard a series of hollow relationships. You don’t want this belief system to dominate society. It leads to con artists,” he continued. Until people address the diseases of despair that plague American society, Chris said, there is no way to blunt the self-destructive pathologies that made a Trump presidency possible. “Once a capitalist society takes complete control, like it has in the United States, it dismantles the structure that make social bonds possible. The more concentrated the wealth becomes, the more damage it inflicts on society. It sends overseas jobs to sweatshops leaving those left at home underemployed or unemployed.” He writes a weekly column for the online magazine Truthdig. He avoids all forms of broadcast media that is self presentation and a sick culture of narcissism. “If we don’t heal these wounds, which are present in Canada, if we do not restore the social bonds when the next financial crisis arrives, this collective anatomy will explode,” he said. “It is western nothingness that is anti-God and anti-human. Religion is a good thing for good people and a bad thing for bad people. Donald Trump as President of the United States is anti-religious, one that is of self-worship.” Chris called Trump a symptom of a diseased society. He partly blames churches for not denouncing these heretics. “Jesus did not come to make us rich and did not bless the white race as above other races,” Chris said. “Jesus was a person of colour, it was the Romans that were white. “We will only endure by inverting the world’s values to resist radical evil. We must find the moral and intellectual courage. If there is any hope left to thwart the extinction of the human species. We must build alternative communities and

Life is better in the Quick Lane.TM organizations dedicated to resistance of power against power. We must, wave after wave, carry out non-violent acts of civil disobediences to shut down the capital cities of the major industrial countries, crippling commerce and transportation until the ruling elitists publicly state the truth. If we do not, we will face mass death. We can no longer remain silent. On April 15, people are asked to be involved in non-violent protests against extinction. I don’t know if this will succeed, but I do know it is the only mechanism left to force the ruling elites, those who have mocked global warming even though we have known it for decades, have refused to carry out the measures

needed to protect the planet and the human species. These elite are illegitimate and must be replaced. Resistance is more than about winning, it is a about a life of meaning. It is a message to the elite that you do not own us. Courage is contagious. Resistance is the only option to stop extinction. The goal is to hold the capitalism system for ransom until the elites tell the truth about climate prices and get carbon emissions to zero by 2025. This is an emergency, we have less than a decade.” When asked about Alberta or Canadian politics, all Chris would say was “Tommy Douglas got it right.”
