Not Guilty of Attempted murder, violent youth given light sentence Victim has 92 screws holding her facial bones together, brain damage after nearly deadly Youth Ranch assault MAUREEN SULLIVAN On March 7, 2018, a conviction of Aggrivated Assault was handed down at the Youth Criminal Justice Court in Edmonton, to the second teen attacker involved in the assault at Elk Island

The judge said he considered imposing a longer sentence in custody but noted BJN's significant mental challenges.

Youth Ranch last February. Sixteen year old identified only as BJN due to his age, a ward of the province, will spend three more months behind bars for the aggrivated assault of youth worker Heather Vanderzee. After he is released he will be closely supervised at a group home

in Calgary for another eight months before being placed on probation for another year. His real name is protected by a publication ban under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. The teen has been in custody for the past 13 months after being arrested and charged with robbery and the attempted murder of Vanderzee on February 4, 2017. A second teen involved in the incident has already pleaded guilty to robbery and was sentenced to 303 days. On February 4, 2017, BJN was in a treatment program at the Elk Island Youth Ranch. He and another boy decided they wanted to steal a vehicle and go into the city. Heather Vanderzee had the keys to the office where the vehicle keys were stored. At the trial the other teen testified BJN asked Vanderzee for a hug and when she complied he put her in a chokehold. When the teen returned with the keys he testified that Vanderzee was on the ground and BJN was "stomping Heather's face." Heather Vanderzee is per-

manently brain damaged and is being treated for depression and anxiety. After the attack she had to undergo facial reconstructive surgery and now has 92 titanium screws in her face. In a victim impact statement read by prosecutor Marissa Tordoff on behalf of Heather she writes, 'I am in constant pain. I will never be able to work again. My confidence has been taken away from me." In his ruling Judge Geoffrey Ho agreed with the sentencing recommendations made by the Crown and the defence. The judge said he considered imposing a longer sentence in custody but noted BJN's significant mental challenges. According to a neuro-psychological assessment, the teen functions at a grade two level with a very low IQ. He has a number of psychological disorders and very poor impulse control. "BJN is not capable of making decisions in any capacity, or understanding the complex issues of independent living. Based on his history, it is quite likely that he will be returning to the justice system." So wrote Dr.

See Editorial Page 4

Don Massey in his report presented to the court. The judge found BJN did not form the intent to kill Vanderzee and convicted him on a charge of aggravated assault. The teen already has a lengthy crimi-

Badly beaten Heather Vanderzee

nal record that includes convictions for eight violent offences, including attacks on other staff members at the Elk Island Youth Ranch. He was already on probation when he assaulted Vanderzee.

3 Mundare air cadets compete to win placement in summer camps MAUREEN SULLIVAN On February 17, three cadets from 341 Mundare Royal Air Cadets competed against more than 200 fellow cadets in Innisfail, Alberta for the opportunity to attend specialized training camps this summer.

Sgt. Ryan Moffat, FCPL Ben Jamison and FCPL Kierstyn Buck attended the scholarship review boards. The cadet applications include a review of personal narrative, school grades and a personal panel interview. The training courses that fall under

the scholarship categories include: Advanced Aerospace Course; Glider Pilot; Power Pilot; Aviation Technology Airport Operations; Aircraft Maintenance and the International Air Cadet Exchange. The Department of National Defence

Air Cadets Continued from Front

FCPL Ben Jamison, Sgt Ryan Moffat and FCPL Kierstyn Buck at the Alberta Provincial Committe at Innisfail.

The selection boards were developed to provide a consistent and fair method of selecting cadets and to develop a scoring system to reduce or eliminate inconsistencies. The cadets are scored by a three panel judge on 6 specific criteria; attitude, motivation, knowledge and interest in the air cadets, education and grades, general knowledge, dress, deportment and self expression, qualifying exam, attitude, motivation, knowledge and interest in the subject matter. Cadets are encouraged to become active, responsible members of their communities. More than 20,000 cadets attend camp each summer. Former cadets from 341 Mundare RCAC are Matthew Kutryk, a fighter pilot who was chosen to fly the Canada 150 CF 18 Hornet and Joshua Kutryk, Canada's newest astronaut.

Opinion A Clockwork Orange 2018 In February 2017 a 15-year-old boy who can't be identified because he is under-age (we'll call him "Alex"), who was living at the Elk Island Child and Youth Ranch east of Lamont, brutally attacked and beat 63year-old worker Heather Vanderzee to within an inch of her life. "Alex" and his caregiver Vanderzee knew each other and reportedly had a good relationship when "Alex" went in for a hug. Instead he put her in a choke-hold, tossed her to the floor, and began stomping on her face and head. At the sight of her blood "Alex" admitted that he began giggling. Vanderzee was eventually released from hospital with permanent brain damage and ongoing facial injuries including 92 titanium screws holding her facial bones together. Last week "Alex" was acquitted of attempted murder and given 24 months, including credit for 13 months already served. He will now serve three more months, then eight supervised in the community. His under-age associate in crime (we'll call him a "Droog"), received 303 days for robbery but never admitted hurting Vanderzee. A psychological report filed in court, said "Alex" would not benefit from mental health therapy as he can not properly process information. Court heard the vicious teen has "organic brain issues" and functions at the level of a seven-year-old, therefore he would not benefit from counselling. But lawyers agreed that in only three months, when "Alex" is back in society, the now 17-year-old will be a risk to re-offend. This whole "horrorshow" reminds me of the book A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, and the movie by Stanley Kubrick, in which the main character (Alex) commits a number of violent acts before he eventually murders someone and is given 14 years in prison as a minor. In the storyline of A Clockwork Orange, after a brief two years of good behaviour Alex was deemed a perfect candidate for the Ludovico Technique, an experimental treatment designed to eliminate criminal impulses. In the book/movie the main character is forced to watch violent images while being injected with nausia-inducing drugs. Eventually Alex loses his choice to be violent and begins disassociating with violent thoughts. Now becoming ill at the thought of violence, Alex is cast from prison back into the cruel world which begins retaliating and the perpetrator becomes the victim. At the end of the movie, the youth is treated to reverse the effects of the Ludovico Technique, and he is sent back into the world again as his "ultra-violent" self. The disappointing conclusion of A Clockwork Orange is that attempts to rehabilitate the violent youth ultimately failed. The encouraging part is that at least society endeavored to do so. Obviously a work of fiction. Kerry Anderson

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Like father, like son There are many things to say about the Liberal’s most recent Budget 2018 and few of them are good. During the years of Trudeau the Elder, deficits were justified by the Liberals for the same reasons they are being justified today—that rising economic fortune justifies increasing deficits. Today Trudeau the Younger is picking up where his father left off. During Election 2015, he promised to run modest deficits to stimulate economic growth. This would be followed by fiscal tightening and a balanced budget by 2019. This promise he has officially broken as of the Government’s most recent budget, which includes no plan to bring our budget into balance. History is repeating itself: the Liberals are content to run a permanent deficit. Despite record high commodity prices, a near doubling of oil prices and a rapidly growing United States economy, the Liberals are refusing to take fiscal responsibility and lay out a clear plan for balanced budgets. Economists call this a “structural deficit,” meaning that

even if the economy operates at full capacity and efficiency the Government will still run a deficit. The Liberals are governing like a person who takes a loan out on their house and buys risky stocks at the top of the market. As long as interest rates remain low and stocks keep rising, the policy appears sound. We all know, however, how quickly stock markets can fall, and how what once appeared as prudent, can quickly unravel. As the Conservative MP for Sturgeon River-Parkland, I want to offer a clear alternative to Trudeau’s economic mismanagement. This alternative involves using the economic strength of the global economy to bring Canada’s budget back to balance. It involves finding efficiencies in Government to bring back the investment we need to grow. I don’t want Canada to run austerity budgets; but when Liberals blow the bank during good economic times, they will leave Canadians of the (near) future with no choice but to be austere. Dane Lloyd, MP Sturgeon River-Parkland

Former Premier Stelmach honoured guest at Bruderheim Mayor’s Dinner MAUREEN SULLIVAN Former Premier Ed Stelmach was the guest speaker at the Mayor’s Dinner in Bruderheim on Friday, March 9. Other honoured guests included; MP Shannon Stubbs, MLA Jessica Littlewood, Jeremy Nolais (Issues Director, Office of the Premier), and Vegreville Town Councillor Tina Warwa. Also at the head table were; Mayor Karl Hauch, Deputy Mayor Pat Lee, Councillor George Campbell and wife Norrie, Councillor Judy Scheuler, Councillor Patrick Crawford, esteemed guests Vern and Ruth Bartz, and MC Jana Semeniuk and husband Chris. The event was filled with council members from Lamont County and the towns and vil-

lages within it plus community organizations and business members who work with the Town of Bruderheim. MP Shannon Stubbs spoke about Mayor Karl Hauch's leadership in helping Bruderheim grow when other small rural towns are diminishing due to his ability to build regional relationships. She thanked Ed Stelmach for his continued leadership and compassion for the disadvantaged. MP Stubbs then presented Mayor Hauch with a cheque for $22,500 from the Enabling Accessibilty Grant. This grant from the Federal Government will cover the capital cost of building and retrofitting buildings for accessibility such as installing automatic

doors in public buildings. MLA Jessica Littlewood spoke about the new Hotel 6 in Bruderheim that was made from containers, and how that is now being looked at as a template for affordable hous-

ing. She also spoke about the importance of funding Agricultural Societies as they are keeping rural communities thriving. Mr. Stelmach started his speech to a standing ovation and joked, “It’s great to get a standing ovation before a speech.�

He spoke to the courage of Alberta’s female pioneers who helped to create our health care system. He called them compassionate and resilient women, most from various faith based organizations, who shaped the province

with their faith, courage and astute leadership. Before there was a province of Alberta these women pioneers were providing health care that met the needs of the community, said the former Premier. Continued on Page 8

We announce with great sadness the passing of Dr. Bireswar Bose in Edmonton on March 3, 2018 while surrounded by his loving care givers, niece and friends at the age of 87. Dr. Bose was born in Calcutta and graduated in Medicine from the R. G. Kar Medical College, University of Calcutta. After a year of internship, he went to Vellore Medical College in South India for nine months to obtain further training. He then left for England where he spent eight years to obtain surgical training and become a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Edinburgh. He married Dr. Anita Roy, who was his medical college sweetheart and two years junior in school. She joined him in England and obtained advanced training as an anesthesiologist.

He settled in the town of Barrhead, Alberta to carry on his surgical practice. In 1974, he became a Fellow of Royal College of Surgeons (Canada). He was appointed as a consultant surgeon to the breast unit at Cross Cancer Institute where he was involved in both clinical and research work. Greatly dedicated to his profession, he was much liked and respected by his patients and colleagues. He published 29 scientific articles and made many presentations in international surgical meetings in many countries. His significant contributions include developing a technique for excision of nailfold for in-growing toe nails (1971), and he used amniotic membrane to treat burn wound (1979). Both processes are still relevant today.

In 2002, he retired from active practice to take care of his wife Dr. Anita Bose who became ill. She passed away in April of 2017. He and his wife were popularly known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Biru-daâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anitadiâ&#x20AC;? in the Bengali community. They both played a major role for many years in the affairs of Edmonton Bengali Association and both were loved and respected by the community. Their contributions will be remembered fondly for a long time. A celebration of Dr Boseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life will be held Saturday, March 17, 2018 at 1:00 pm at Hainstockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Funeral Home and Crematorium, 9810 34 Avenue NW, Edmonton T6E 6L1 followed by cremation.

Mayor Continued from 7 “They were the force behind many of the community hospitals throughout Alberta while being built. "They left a legacy that we must be mindful of as we move forward. One,

that they treated the whole person, body mind and soul. Two, collaboration, they worked with and within their community to get things accomplished. Three, advocacy, they met the needs of the people one by one, championing those who are not seen. “It doesn’t matter what

we do, whether we are political, charitable or in the private sector. It is a call to serve,” stated the former premier as he ended his speech. Mayor Karl Hauch ended the evening with some highlights of 2017 and finished with his humourous top 10 reasons to visit Bruderheim.

EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY TOP YIELD FERTILIZERS LTD. is now taking applications for the following seasonal positions: Mae Adamyk and MP Shannon Stubbs share a laugh at the podium.

Over $25,000 raised for Haying in the 30's MAUREEN SULLIVAN St. Michael exceeded the past 13 years of fundraising for cancer patients with a record breaking $25,719, with donations still rolling in. The dinner and auction was held Saturday March 10, and all 300 tickets were sold. The St. Michael Community and District Agricultural Society raises funds every year to assist cancer patients with travelling costs while undergoing treatments. CFCW morning host Stella Stevens stated that she has been a supporter for many years. "It is an important cause. The money helps people directly when their lives are falling apart. Everyone has someone touched by cancer," she stated, "friends, family members but there is always hope." MP Shannon Stubbs said a few words about the importance of the event and asked everyone to be generous. Lamont Councillor Dave Didyk presented the organization with a $500 donation from Lamont County and $500 from the Andrews Lion

Club. Among the many generous donations was $2,500 from Directional Drilling, 4 Oilers tickets from KG Enterprises and a load of gravel from MJ Trucking worth $1,250. The generosity of the community's donations for the auction and silent auction are too numerous to mention. Mae Adamyk said, "the community's generosity is very touching. St Michael volunteers put a lot effort into this event, and the response from the community is overwhelming." Also at the event was Riel Corberiere from Maillag. Haying in the 30's started off as a fund raiser for the Maillag Agriculture Society showing off the equipment that was used to hay back in the 1930's. Hence the name, however it turned into a fundraiser for cancer support when Riel had cancer as a little boy. He was one of the auctioneers on Saturday night. You can still support the cause by contacting the St. Michael Community and District Agricultural Society.

FROM WHERE I SIT: Show Up for the Excitement

By Hazel Anaka This winter we’ve made a greater effort to watch Grady play hockey more often. That’s meant making a special trip to regular games in the Strathcona County area or a tournament in St. Paul. Other times, it’s meant squeezing in errands around game times. Depending on everyone’s plans, sometimes we head out to eat after the game. Other times, we visit in the arena lobby and leave in separate directions. It’s like déjà vu all over again. So many memories from Greg’s hockey days come flooding back. The heavy, heavy hockey bags that bend a kid over when he’s finally strong enough to carry it himself. Each kid on this team has his own garment bag. I guess it beats scrunching it up in the bottom of the bag under the stinky protective gear.

Perhaps fan behaviour has improved. Many leagues or perhaps the provincial governing board have strict rules about acceptable behaviour by parents and fans. When those rules are broken, it usually ends up on the six o’clock news. If you can measure fan enthusiasm by volume, the game we attended on Saturday was off the charts. Can’t say I really enjoyed the cowbells, moose call, chunks of two by four wooden clackers that marked every goal. But we remember how caught up parents get. The rivalry might have been higher than normal because it was a playoff game against another Sherwood Park team. I still feel empathy for the referees and linesmen, some of whom aren’t much older/taller than the kids they’re officiating. The year Greg sat out because of a broken collarbone, he took ref training, got the striped sweater and stayed in skating shape by reffing. Like many things in life, it looks easier than it actually is. I cringe a little inside when coaches question calls. You can see the kid’s body language shrink before your eyes. This year Grady hap-

pens to be one of the older kids and typically scores two or three times per game as well as assisting on others. As thrilling as that is for all of us, it also comes with incredible pressure. It’s not easy for adults to manage the expectations we have of our own behaviour, so imagine an eight year old’s emotions when he feels he could have, should have done better. Where exactly is the delicate balance between encouraging

real effort, constant improvement and just being happy with whatever the kid does? I’ve always worried about goalies and their parents especially. It’s nerve wracking when a skater is bearing down on you, one-on-one and the crowd is holding its collective breath. You’re either a hero or a zero. Kid brother Kade doesn’t care a whit about the game. He plays with a little girl, eats and squirms.

Very soon, it’s over in a loss, and so is the season. Our blood pressures return to normal. And maybe, just maybe we’re glad our days of driving to weekly practices and
