Remembrance Day community service in Lamont Lamont Fire Department gave an historical overview of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. which began at 5:30 a.m. on April 9, 1917. The battle lasted four days and resulted in 7,004 casualties and 3,598 deaths, “almost the entire population of Lamont County”. The victory came swiftly,” and had a profound effect on the outcome of World War 1 and soldiers utilized technical and tactical innovations. Meticulous planning and extensive training also played a key role in its success. He thanked those soldiers who were responsible for the victory and for changing the course of military history. “We will remember them.” Madison Widmer sang a couple of songs, Anastazia Engman recited the poem In Flanders Fields, and Debbie Brill led in A Prayer of Remembrance, followed by the official Cenotaph Service.

Parliamentarian of the Year: Shannon Stubbs voted best MP who represents constituents Michelle Pinon Editor
Maclean’s magazine announced its 2017 Parliamentarians of the Year on Tuesday, November 7 in Ottawa. While it came as a surprise to Shannon Stubbs, it probably will not come as a surprise to the people of Lakeland that she was named MP Who Best Represents Constituents. “I’m very honoured and grateful to receive the honour,” said Stubbs who was away at an international energy conference in Paris when the award was handed out. This is the 10th year running that Macleans has presented the awards. MP’s from both sides of the house vote on a number of categories including: Parliamentarian of the
year, MP who best represents constituents, best civic outreach, most collegial, best orator, hardest working, best mentor, rising star, most knowledgeable, and lifetime achievement. Stubbs said she didn’t realize her award is not usually given to relatively new MP’s and expressed her appreciation. Her number one focus has been a voice for the people of Lakeland since taking office in 2015. While flattered to receive the award, Stubbs said its the opinions of constituents who matter most. Passionate and relentless, she is a champion for all of her 100,000 plus constituents, and tries to spend as much time in the riding during breaks and summer holidays, attending as many community events as
humanly possible. She also makes a deliberate effort to mention the committees, issues and priorities to the people she represents. The constituency offices also play a key role, and says, “it’s a total team effort” to gather information, respond to questions, concerns, aspirations, and recommendations of constituents. Whether she’s in her home territory or Parliament Hill, Stubbs is an advocate for the people of Lakeland, and is thankful for the trust and confidence that has been placed in her. Stubbs has also been grateful for all of the support of former Conservative leader Rona Ambrose, and current leader Andrew Scheer. She was recently named shadow minister of natural resources, and is advocating for energy
companies throughout the country. “We need to champion Canadian energy.” One of the major hurdles she’s facing is the Liberal government, which she says has created uncertainty in the pipeline and oil and gas industry. With numerous regulatory reviews, there has been no clarity, security or predictability when it comes to applications, causing investors to flee to the United States or other foreign countries that will welcome their investment. “They (the Liberals) are talking out of both sides of their mouth and sending a signal to the world that we’re not open for business.” She also pointed out the Alberta government has been vague on emissions, that there are also
Lakeland MP Shannon Stubbs is a strong advocate for the energy industry and will continue to push hard for the best interests of constituents. environmental impacts to wind and solar energy which is only able to supply one per cent of the current demand. Stubbs added that the demand for oil in the world has not decreased and said we need to be proud of the work which is already being done in regard to environmental performance and emission standards by Canadian companies
which are among the best in the world. Stubbs says voters, not only in Lakeland, but throughout the country will decide what they want and who they want in power. It appears as if she’s got the next election in mind, and will be pushing hard for the oil and gas industry and the economy in the months and years ahead.

Opinion Remember Remember, Remember Lest we forget Our loved ones Our dear ones Who fought in the wars They fought for our freedom They fought for our land The fought for our peace They fought for all man In Flanders Fields The poppies blow Between the crosses Row on row That mark our place And in the sky The larks still bravely singing fly Scarce heard amidst the guns below Remember, Remember Lest we forget Our loved ones Our dear ones Who fought in the wars They fought for our freedom They fought for our land The fought for our peace They fought for all man We are the dead Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow Loved and were loved And now we lie In Flanders Fields
Letter to the Editor
Does it pay to give it all? I worked for the local Co-op just shy of 39 years, managing the operation for the past 16 years. During that time, I ran a very tight ship while doing my best to provide top notch customer service and satisfaction. During this time dividends were paid back to the members, matched by no other Northern Alberta operation. Member rebates of up to 14 cents/litre on all fuel was unheard of. Since 2001 nearly $30 million was given to member equity and nearly $25 million was paid back in cash to the members. One could say that is fair performance with sales doubling within five years. Managers of other stores in the Federated Co-op system would receive yearly bonuses
depending on their performance. I did NOT. When one of our employees got sick and I did not know if he could return, being kind and compassionate, I wanted to make sure there was a position to return to, thus not hiring anyone for over a year. I took on their role solely, thus thousands of dollars in wages were not paid by the operation. I spent many nights working till 11 p.m. in the store with quite a few nights past midnight. When I retired I asked for a long term service and performance award but of what was granted, nothing. At least bonuses for the past year would have been something. I spoke with the director from a nearby operation and asked if their manager received bonuses, he said “Yes Absolutely!”
They paid their manager a performance bonus every single year. He was very surprised I received nothing knowing the monumental success of our operation. The director also went on to say when their manager retires that he would be getting additional bonuses and suggested I ask the board again. I followed the advice and asked again and was told “You left voluntarily”, and that no compensation would be paid. I wasn’t asking for severance pay but rather at least some kind of performance award. In the past three years I had three days off, two in 2014, one in 2015 and ZERO days off in 2016. Being a dedicated, honest, loyal and hard-working manager asking for some appreciation and gratitude, didn’t seem
unreasonable. I worked well past the age of 65 and provided ample notice of retirement for a smooth transition. I poured my heart and soul into the business for nearly 40 Years and was burnt out, so retiring seemed logical. I guess if I would have screwed up like many of these big corporate CEOs; like Target for example, and been fired at least I would have gotten severance. Unimaginable that qualities of character, unparalleled work ethic and monumental success don’t count for anything these days! What type of society have we become when literally Giving It Your All Doesn’t Pay? Ken Patrie
Remember, Remember Lest we forget Our loved ones Our dear ones Who fought in the wars They fought for our freedom They fought for our land The fought for our peace They fought for all man Take up your quarrel with the foe To you, from failing hands, we throw The torch be yours to hold it high If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders Fields Oh God in whom we trust Guide all the men and women who serve And so will you bless And keep them from Flanders Fields Song written and composed by Dave Stahl

From Where I Sit: Gotta Love It could make anyone understand anything. Unfortunately, it ain’t so. Some can’t understand; others don’t want to understand. So for someone who loves words and is fascinated by politics, today offers a perfect storm. Not only is there a bizarro world unfolding daily south of the 49th, By Hazel Anaka It’s no secret I love words. I know they can be used to inform or mislead, to uplift or destroy, to amuse or annoy, to clarify or obfuscate. A hundred years ago when I was an elected official, I believed that if I chose the right words, tried different ways of saying something, spoke at the level of the listener, I
there has been action in Alberta and Canada: the merger of the Wildrose and PC parties, leadership races in the provincial UCP and federal NDP parties, provincewide municipal elections on October 16th. The games have begun. Effective speakers are warned not to use jargon or acronyms because it distances the speaker from listeners who aren’t
in on it. Communications pros and spin-doctors protecting politicians and others under attack have turned speaking without saying anything into an art form. So naturally, I started a list. A list of the most clichéd, offensive, condescending, muddying phrases, or outright alternative facts that are so insidious and common, we no longer recognize them for what they are: bullshit. Here are a few weasel word doozies, with context, where possible: o “Let me be clear” (actually, anything but) o “We are bending the spending curve” (is that like saving money?) o “A lot of work is still to be done” (well, duh) o “We’re smoothing out
the costs” (Ontario minister trying to fix hydro bill costs) o “I am unable to comment” (US Attorney General Jeff Sessions during his confirmation hearings) o “We’re working very hard to resolve insert crisis here. Let the committee, commission, board do its work.” (usually Liberals justifying yet another study or consultation process) o “We’re getting into the weeds” (usually US political news hosts) o “Speak truth to power” (Can’t those damn Republicans rein Trump in?) o “We’re going to invest in the things necessary.” (provincial treasurer Joe Ceci before budget) o “Green shoots” (ahhh look, signs of something
new and oh, so good) o “This government thinks it can tax its way to prosperity.” (Opposition parties everywhere) o “At the end of the day” (maddening in its frequency) o “Binary choice” (decision between two alternatives) o “We’re creating jobs, good jobs” (every government all the time) o “We want to change the narrative” (no kidding) o “Fundignation” (used by columnist Graham Thomas meaning increasing the level of indignation also increases the fun, usually by opposition members) o “Re-litigate” (favourite phrase of US political hosts and pundits as they regurgitate whatev-
er the topic at hand, ie: number of people at the inauguration, how many illegal voters there were, etc) o “We need to chart a way forward” (in an Athabasca University report) o “They are trying to thread the needle” (maneuvering a dicey political situation) Words like contemporaneous (former FBI director Jim Comey made these kinds of notes), emolument (Trump’s personal enrichment by virtue of his office as president), memorialize (Comey documenting the substance of meetings right after they happened) drove me to the dictionary. Gotta love it, from where I sit.
Popular author visits Lamont Elementary School By Violet Stahn and Mrs. Wisselink On Monday, November 6, Kevin Miller led writing workshops for Grades 4- 6 students at Lamont Elementary School. Kevin Miller grew up in Saskatchewan and now lives in British Columbia. He has worked as a film editor, screen writer and book
editor. He has also written non-fiction books and has now begun writing a series of novels for young readers called the Milligan Creek Series. The stories are based in Saskatchewan and follow the escapades of four friends as they paddle a creek during the spring runoff in Up the Creek and then as they hijack a local radio signal in his new book,

Unlimited. He is working on a third book in the series called The Water War. “Stories,” explained Kevin Miller, “come from ideas as small as a germ. Just a word could inspire a book.” He went on to describe where to find story ideas for example people with unique hobbies, interesting locations, strange objects, or unusual
events. “Once you have your germ or idea, then you need to ask, “What if?” and imagine all the possibilities. You could write a comedy, science fiction, or love story.” Kevin Miller encouraged students to come up with story ideas based on different pictures he showed. He then he had students begin to write a possible scene for a story.

Elk Island Public Schools trustees embrace the learning curve By Trina Boymook EIPS board chair With the election behind us, Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) trustees are wasting no time diving into their roles. We kick-started the term with a two-day orientation session detailing critical information needed to fully understand the responsibility of a trustee within EIPS and Alberta Education. The knowledge gained is invaluable and offers foresight as we embark on one of our most demanding months of
Trina Boymook the year. T h r o u g h o u t November, trustees are participating in the Division’s annual Results Review, which is a forum for schools and departments to share
with the Board their results, annual plans, budgets, successes and challenges. Through the Results Review, trustees are able to interact directly with schools and departments, and in turn, gain a holistic understanding of what’s taking place throughout EIPS. We’re also finalizing the Annual Education Results Report—a document outlining how the Division’s developing students to achieve the best possible outcomes. Collectively, these help the Board set the future
direction and inform decision-making around resource allocations. Additionally, the Board’s finalizing the Division’s financials and long-term capital plans. With the official student enrollment counts now in, we’re fine-tuning EIPS’ 2017-18 budget. We’re also meeting with our external auditor, MNP, to complete the 2016-17 audited financial statements. As well, school boards are required to develop a 10year capital plan on an annual basis—detailing the Division’s immediate
and long-term needs. Before approved, the board considers EIPS’ expanding communities, how to grow with those communities and the condition of its facilities. The goal: To provide quality-learning spaces to all our students. The three reports are slated for approval at the November Board meeting. Finally, trustees are attending the Alberta School Boards Association Fall General Meeting on November 20. Together, Alberta’s 61 school boards will
debate the issue resolutions for the upcoming year. For new trustees it’s an opportunity to see how school boards share information, best practices and common issues. So, while November is one of our busiest months, it serves as a perfect orientation for new trustees—one that expedites growth, enhances understanding around the role and responsibility and ultimately facilitates learning.
Violence Threat Risk Assessment Protocol adopted Elk Island Public Schools board chair Trina Boymook officially signed the newly created Elk Island Violence Threat Risk Assisement Protocol on October 23. Over the last year, EIPS, EICS and New Horizons have worked in partnership with a number of community partners throughout the Elk Island region to develop a violence threat risk assessment (VTRA) protocol. The protocol is meant to help prevent violence in schools and communities by outlining ways to identify threats, a common language and understanding around threat assessment, a multidisciplinary approach to violence prevention, and how to make use of the expertise of community partners. By signing the protocol, all partners – school boards, the RCMP, government agencies and community agen-
cies – are agreeing to be accountable to the protocol’s purpose and share the obligation to actively take steps to prevent traumatic events in schools and neighbourhoods. “Violence prevention is a community responsibility, where all community partners work together to promote and maintain safety,” says Trina Boymook, the board chair of EIPS. “The signatures on the protocol represent a vast partnership charged with creating and maintaining school environments where students, staff, parents and others feel safe.” The Elk Island Violence Threat Risk Assessment Protocol is based on the Canadian Centre for Threat Assessment and Trauma Response model of VTRA, where VTRA teams are put in place to collaborate for the common goal of reducing violence and promot-
ing individual, school and community safety. All of Elk Island’s multidisciplinary VTRA teams are trained in the theory and practice of child and youth violence threat risk assessment and tasked with following a multi-step process that includes immediate response, data collection, initial assessment, comprehensive risk assessment, intervention by a multidisciplinary team, long-term treatment planning and followup support. “The continued safety of students and staff is the No. 1 priority in all we do at our schools,” says Justine Wright, the board chair of EICS. “The signed protocol reaffirms this commitment and ensures all partner organizations commit to responding to any form of violence or threat of violence that impacts the quality of life for children and youth.”
Partners involved in the Elk Island Violence Threat Risk Assessment Protocol are as follows: Alberta Health Services: Children, Youth and Families, Addiction and Mental Health Alberta, Heartland Primary Care Network, A Safe Place: A Shelter for Abused Women and their Children, Canadian Centre for Threat Assessment and Trauma
Response, Eastern Edge Regional Collaborative Service Delivery, Elk Island Catholic Schools, Elk Island Public Schools, Family and Community Support Services, Lamont County Region Family and Community Support Services, Vegreville and District Fort Saskatchewan Family and Community Support Services, Fort Saskatchewan RCMP

Amazing additions to Haunted Halloween crew SUBMITTED ARTICLE In 2013, nine people (ages 6-38) came together just to do a home haunt. In 2016 we had three amazing crew members nominated by the complete group. These three people have showed us that they can be a leader on and off the set and age doesn’t matter. Andrew volunteers Gavin, Brooke and Devon Hamaliuk have now become very important team leaders to the crew. Gavin and Brooke help lead the low scare haunt, this involves designing, planning, building and helping others join the haunt and work their own personal obstacle. In 2017 there were 13 children and youth on this team that they lead. Devon has became an extremely important part of the high scare haunt, he too in in charge of the same things as his siblings but also so much more, being on the high scare and over the

age of 13 also entails, learning how to safely use power tools and help the low scare haunter to better themselves with the tools. He was on the crew to build the walls of the set this set stand over eight feet in height and covers a yard 40’ X 50’, and another yard approx. 50’ X 50’ cemetery, with hand built tombstone. They were amazing additions to our crew. Throughout the last few years we have seen that our crew could give back in so many ways. We raise money for Alberta Cancer and clothing, and household items for a charity of the crews choice, this changes yearly. In 2016 our crew became a finalist in the Canadian Haunters association’s “Rookie haunt awards” making us one of the top 5 in Canada. A very exciting achievement, especially when over 75% of our crew is under the age of 20. Our set is built 80% by the members of our crew. Each and every one of us takes pride in putting our little touch in to the final haunt design and show. We bring this haunt to you always the last weekend of October and on Halloween night. We have a team of originals that are voted on by another original. To become a original it take a lot of hard work. From showing you can be a great role model, having self respect and respect of others, to keeping grades up in school and attendance at work. When thinking of this people think an adult only can be this due to being responsible for others, in our eyes this is not true we have some very responsible children. We feel youth and teens on our crew are almost if not better role models than a lot of adults. Adults come with person struggles and issues of our own. Children do not they come with the will to learn and help more than anything else.

Lamont Elementary School to host cyber world internet safety workshop for caregivers Michelle Pinon Editor
Lamont Elementary School will be hosting a special cyber world workshop for parents, caregiver and professionals on Thursday, November 30 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Titled: “A Caregiver’s Guide To Raising Healthy Digital Citizens” is an adult only presentation that will cover a variety of topics including: privacy settings, parental controls, cyber-bullying, red flags, safe practices and social media. Julie Parr, Public Education Co-ordinator with the Saffron Centre says: “Parents need to increase their awareness of what their kids can access online and increase boundaries on tech use to protect their kids physical safety; but more importantly, to help protect their emotional well being and character.” Each year the organization speaks to about 25,000 adults and students on internet safety. Presenters cover privacy settings, location settings, how to manage friends and followers to protect personal information, cyber-bullying, sexting, respect for self and one’s future as well as healthy boundaries. Parr points that, “All kids playing Minecraft and Roblox who use the chat feature have been called names, sworn at and mistreated. All eight-year-olds who use Instagram have seen naked images that others post on the platform, (This would be considered their first exposure to pornography). All children and teens can freely access pornography and it is leading to increased sexual violence in teen relationships and hookups. Even with the use of privacy settings any one can request to chat with a child or teen) this applies to all social media and online games.”
She went on to say, “Children and teens spending two or more hours per day online have increased rates of depression and anxiety. Most high school students do not consider what they do online to be real or have any impact on their emotional well being or character development nor have any impact on anyone
else. Chat groups are often used to bully friends because they are completely unsupervised. Many teens feel it’s ok to send a naked picture of themselves to someone else so long as they think they can trust the person. Their definition of trust is extremely short sighted. They are unaware of Canada’s Child Pornography laws
that make it illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to take a naked picture, send it, or keep it on their device. They are unaware how their reactions to the pictures that are shared virally impact the person in the picture. Emotional ramifications are rampant.”

New Canadian citizens welcomed in Mundare ceremony Michelle Pinon Editor
Eleanor Homeniuk was one of several well wishers who came specifically to support Milene Rozmahel during the Canadian Citizenship Ceremony at the Mundare Recreation Centre on Tuesday, November 7. Eleanor was seated next to Marlene Roth, and Marie Wispinski, all members of the Vegreville Hospital Auxilary. Only a couple of rows of seats ahead were half a dozen residents and staff from Mary Immaculate Care Centre in Mundare. Milene is also a member of the Vegreville Hospital Auxiliary and worked for several decades in that community before transferring to the Mundare long term care facility two years ago. Fellow volunteers, residents and staff describe the mother of five and grandmother of one as a warm, loving and caring person, and look forward to seeing the recreational therapy assistant every time she comes to work. It was Milene, who actually asked if the department would hold a citizenship ceremony at the centre. She said she had tried to be a good caregiver to all seniors. She wrote: “I have learned so much through these wonderful people. These seniors have taught me to value this country, to work hard for it, by keeping peace, harmony and forgiveness. I have listened to their stories about being part of the war, of just becoming new immigrants, of raising children and paying back to the country that welcomed their grandparents, parents and them. They have so much respect and love for Canada.” Her letter went on to say, “Beside my own family, these seniors mean the world to me, and I feel that it would be so meaningful to them, and to me, if by any chance at all, my citizenship ceremony could be hosted at the Mary Immaculate Care Centre in Mundare. Most of the residents are over 90years-old, there are three
residents that are 100 and over. The residents would feel such honour and be happy to be part of it. It would be so difficult for them to be at the ceremony in Edmonton.” Milene said she knows of many groups in Mundare and Vegreville that would be happy to host the event, and asked for consideration. Her request was granted, and the citizenship candidates, seniors, and other attendees were excited and delighted to be a part of the once in a lifetime opportunity. Mundare resident Norm Shewchuk considers Milene a good friend, and said: “She lights up the place when she walks in the door.” Often times, when she arrives the residents declare: “It’s a Melanie day!” Also sharing in her special day was her husband of 34 years, Norm, her five children: Claire, Michael, Will, Remy and Charlie along with her first grandchild Izabella. Even though Milene had lived in Canada for 34 years, the time was never quite right to become a Canadian citizen. Norm said they started the process several time, but “life happened” and she didn’t seize the opportunity again until a year ago when she began the application process. Milene said the residents helped her prepare for the test, and they all wanted to learn more about the citizenship ceremony as none of them had ever attended one before. Milene described the experience as “profound” and praised the residents, staff, the host group, (Mary Immaculate Auxiliary), and all of the people who had supported her on her journey. Milene said she felt overwhelmed, but was extremely excited and grateful, and gave hugs to everyone who came to attend the ceremony in person. Auxilary President Sharon Dembicki, welcomed everyone. She thanked the various volunteer groups, town and school for its participation in the event. And she thanked the candidates for the gift of renewed appreciation four our country.

Remembrance Day Service features singer-songwriter Michelle Pinon Editor
Students, staff, special guests, families and community members gathered in the Bruderheim School gymnasium Thursday, November 9 for its Remembrance Day Ceremony. â€œThis gathering is unlike all of our assemblies this year, and for good reason. Our moods are calm, we are thoughtful and our hearts may even bit a bit heavy, and that is okay,â€? stated Principal Paul McKay. â€œFor many of us war is something that we have only seen on tv or in the movies. Our closest experience may be from a museum or Principal Paul McKay items passed on to us from older family members. For those of us born in peacetime, war seems far removed from our lives at school.â€? He went on to say, â€œIn war times the brave men and women believed that the life they were living, the life of freedom was being threatened and needed to be protected, they truly believed that without freedom there can be no enduring peace and without peace, no enduring freedom. These brave soldiers acted on the belief that their
actions in the present would make a significant different for the future. Now it is up to us to ensure that their dream of peace is realized and the sacrifices they made are honoured. That is why we gather here this morning.â€? Also, among the people gathered was Bruderheim Mayor Karl Hauch who touched on a few key parts of Remembrance Day, including the ceremony and the unknown soldier. The Remembrance Day Ceremony has played a major role since 1931. â€œEvery year, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we gather in memorial parks, community halls, workplaces, schools and homes to stand in honour of all who have fallen. Together, we observe a moment of silence to mark the sacrifice of the many who have fallen in the service of their country, and to acknowledge the courage of those who still serve.â€? In May of 2000 Canada repatriated the remains of an Unknown Soldier from France and laid them to rest at the National War Memorial in Ottawa, added Hauch, and the idea was originally a millennium project of the Royal Canadian Legion and coordinated through the government by Veterans Affairs Canada. â€œA single set of remains was selected from a m o n g
RCMP offer winter driving trips SUBMITTED ARTICLE With winter upon us, Fort Saskatchewan RCMP would like to encourage the public to follow some simple driving practices to help remain safe this driving season. The first step occurs before even getting into the vehicle. Take the time to clear all snow and ice from all of the windows, side mirrors, headlights and tail lights. A violation ticket for $155 may be issued if someone is driving with an obscured view. Before heading out on the road, check to see what the current road conditions are and what type of weather you should expect. Motorists are also advised to make sure someone is aware of their travel plans, especially during times of inclement weather. On snow and ice cov-
ered roads, it is also important that people drive according to road conditions. If the roads are slippery it will take more time and distance to stop. It is also important to leave a safe amount of distance between vehicles, especially on the highway. As always, it is important that your vehicle is well maintained and ready for winter driving. Good winter tires are recommended as they are specially designed for cold conditions and are designed to grip the road better. Also, ensure your windshield wiper fluid is a winter variety that will not freeze and that your gas tank is kept topped up. Fort Saskatchewan RCMP continue to be committed to keeping the roads safe for you and your families during this winter driving season.
Canadaâ€™s 6,846 unknown soldiers of the First World War for return to Canada and re-internment at the National War Memorial in Ottawa. The Unknown Soldier ultimately came from a cemetary near Vimy Ridge and was flown to lie in state in the Hall of Honour in the Centre Block of Parliament from May 25-28, 2000, where tens of thousands filed past to
pay their respects. The Unknown Soldier was buried on the afternoon of May 28, 2000 in a nationally televised ceremony. The site has become an important focus of commemoration, especially in the national Remembrance Day service at the National War Memorial on Nov. 11.â€? Country music singer-songwriter Jodie Leslie spoke about her grandfather, who was a doctor and a colonel, and the importance of keeping Remembrance Day alive. The Tofield resident sang her song Keep Your Memory Alive that was part of a special project of the Veterans Voices of Canada. â€œItâ€™s very important to keep our Remembrance Day alive,â€? she told the assembly. The Grade 5/6 students sang Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream before the laying of the wreaths and singing of â€œO Canadaâ€? before the flag party departed from the gymnasium.

Conflicts of Interest amendments amendments proposed for agencies SUBMITTED ARTICLE The Government of Alberta has proposed amendments to the Conflicts of Interest Act which are intended to further protect Albertans’ tax dollars and ensure public agencies are governed transparently. Joe Ceci, President of the Treasury Board and Minister of Finance stated on Nov. 8 that, “MLA’s and senior public servants are held to high ethical standards, and extending this to public agencies just makes sense. This is one more way we are making life better for Albertans by ensuring agencies are governed appropriately, ethically and with a high regard for public tax dol-
lars.” The new rules would apply to board members and employees in 136 public agencies that fall under the Alberta Public Agencies Governance Act (APAGA) as well as Covenant Health and three subsidiaries of Alberta Health Services: Calgary Laboratory Services, Capital Care Group and Carewest. If passed, the amendments would require board members and employees to conduct themselves impartially, disclose real and apparent conflicts of interest and place restrictions or limitations on: *acting of self-interest *acceptance of gifts *concurrent employment or other offices
Chief Executive Officers or equivalants would be subject to restrictions on other employment, business undertakings and appointments that constitute a real or apparent conflict of interest. These are similar standards to which MLA’s and senior public officials are held. Additional requirements would be applied to CEO’s of significant agencies, including: *disclosure of financial information to the Ethics Commissioner *restrictions on holding stocks and other securities *a 12 month cooling off period following employment with a public agency to prevent CEO’s from benefitting
from decisions they made Agencies and positions subject to the additional requirements will be identified in early 2018 and designed through Order-in-Council.

Peace officer agreements discussed Michelle Pinon Editor
Mundare town council held its regular council meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 7. One item that it approved was the contract the Town of Mundare has with the Town of Vegreville for peace officer services. Council voted in favour of signing a three year contract with its service provider. The budget for the first year is $17,500. Chief Administrative Officer Colin Zyla said the town received $7,000 in revenue from the fines that were issued last year. The question was raised as to whether the town could implement photo radar, and Zyla said the town would have to get permission from the province in order to administer and collect those fines. The Village of Andrew council also discussed its
Peace Officer Agreement briefly during its meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 8. Deputy Mayor Sheila Lupul made a motion to table the item and discuss it at a future budget and bylaw meeting. Lupul said council would need to look into
the grant the village receives as well as the number of hours of service. “We can’t make an informed decision right now,” stated Lupul. The motion was passed by council.
