4 - The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), Tuesday, October 31, 2017

Opinion OP-ED: Is Canada really committed to coal phase out? Is Canada really committed to coal phase out? Canada needs “clean hands” yet it expects others to act! Just what is Canada’s position on coal? Last week Environment and Climate Change Minister, Catherine McKenna was in London announcing an alliance with the United Kingdom that “will champion a global alliance on the transition from unabated coal-fired electricity at next month’s United Nations climate change meetings in Bonn, Germany. From cleaner air to public health, to sustainability, the benefits of moving towards low or nonemitting sources of power are clear.” While she was there

the New York Times reported the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board is trying to buy the coal assets of Rio Tinto – a deal estimated to be worth $2 billion. The money for this deal was collected by the Canadian government from the pay cheques of Canadians and their employers. So what is Canada’s policy on coal? A phaseout or an investment opportunity? Is the federal government committed to ridding the world of coal or just trying to drive down the value of coal assets so the CPPIB and scope them up cheap? Ms. McKenna is correct. Phasing out coalfired electricity around the world will have a

tremendously positive impact on climate, air pollution, and public health. And, the technology is now available and economically viable. Canada, however, derives only 10 percent of Canada’s electricity of generated by burning coal. Ontario has already shut down its coal plants and most the other provinces have made commitments to do the same. So even though we are leaders in getting rid of coal. It has never been the huge challenge that many developed and developing countries face. Leading a global alliance requires Canada to demonstrate a real commitment. How can Canada be taken seriously if Canadian tax pay-

ers’ pension payments are being used to make new investments in coal? At the very least can’t our credibility be called into question. The Rio Tinto deal isn’t unique the CPPIB has holding in at least 35 other coal companies including Duke Energy which was fined $100 million recently for polluting rivers in the United States with coal ash. Isn’t this analogist to the old ‘Clean Hands” debate in the 1980s. How could we ask Ronald Reagon to clean up acid rain if Canada wasn’t willing to clean up its own act? Only after Ontario slapped regulations on INCO did the US act. We had clean hands.

The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board was set up to earn returns for Canadian pensioners at arm’s length to the government. In 1999 it was freed to go global and seek opportunities around the world. Going global may have allowed the CPPIB gain better returns, but whether intentionally or not, it also made it part of Canada’s foreign policy. Its actions have a bearing on the success Canada’s diplomatic objectives. It’s dirty coal holdings and ambitions are seen as Canada’s. In areas other than climate change and health. The CPPIB has recognized this by publicly stating it will not invest in landmines and will

respect human rights. Canadian foreign policy objectives. So why when it comes to climate change Canada’s signature on the Paris Agreement and its championing of a global coal phase-out of coal is the CPPIB trying to buy more coal assets? How will Ms. McKenna explain the actions of the Canada Pension Plan at climate talks in Bonn next month? Where she will “champion” a coal phase-out. More importantly, how can she expect others to act when we don’t have clean hands? John Bennett

Take me out to the ball game It was past midnight Sunday night when I got to be bed. My son and I were watching game five of the World Series between the Houston Astros and the Los Angeles Dodgers. It was another seesaw affair, and with each bat I felt uneasiness, mixed with anticipation. After awhile I’m sure I sounded like a broken record saying, “It ain’t over till it’s over.” That is one of the famous quotes of the late Yogi Berra, famous backstop for the New York Yankees. He was a catcher with the pin strips for his entire career which spanned 19 years. His strategies for playing and his raw talent are still widely admired. In 1972 he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. I also admired Willie Mays, nicknamed “The Say Hey Kid” as well as Jackie Robinson who became the first black man to play in the major leagues. He joined the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947 and was named Rookie of the Year that year, National League MVP in 1949 and World Series champ in 1955. I was so excited to see Robinson’s wife Rachel, along with two of their three

children during the opening ceremonies of game one of the 2017 World Series on Tuesday, October 24. It was also interesting to learn that the World Series MVP Award will be named after Willie Mays, starting with the 2017 classic. Long before the Montreal Expos or the Toronto Blue Jays joined Major League Baseball, I would watch ball games on the television with my mom and dad. I developed a deep interest in the game, and contemplated what life would be like as a baseball broadcaster. It was appealing to think you could get paid to be a commentator, calling the games, interviewing players and coaches, while travelling to many of the big cities in the United States. While I ultimately chose journalism over broadcasting, I love to listen to and learn from the announcers. Even last night’s 13-12 slugfest left them speechless. Now I can hardly wait for game six and the familiar words, “Play Ball!” Michelle Pinon

From Where I Sit: Change in Luck

By Hazel Anaka Through good luck and smart planning I was able to extend my stay at our time-share in Canmore by three days. The plans were nailed down in late January. And maybe that’s a good thing because I surely wouldn’t have had the nerve to do it if I knew that for the second year in a row harvest was delayed. I remember asking the kids if they’d be available to help dad before I RSVP’d a ‘yes’ to an out-of-province late September wedding. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that leaving in late October would become a proverbial guilt trip.

Law of Shitty Harvests that shouldn’t take more than one service call, two breakdowns, and three days of hard slogging fits and starts between showers and/or frosty mornings. So it’s hard not to feel guilty that I’m missing all that shared misery. A few days ago Hilary came out to the farm to help Roy. In no particular order she’s ended up helping him remove and replace a bent pickup header shaft, combining until 1 or 1:30 AM, spending the night, doing her job from the farm, then heading into Edmonton for some

can’t-miss work meetings. Bless her heart. I owe her big-time. Greg too has been out several times to help but travel to Denver and a family make it harder for him to be there when the conditions are (sarcastic air quotes) ideal. So I’m one lucky woman. Not everyone has the chance to do an annual solo getaway. And frankly many would rather have oral surgery than do something like that even if they had the chance. So, again I’m lucky both that I can and that I want nay need to. Over the years in this

space I’ve said a lot about balancing the ageold need to ‘have something to show for it’ and the more forgiving approach of just mindfully being. So in a year that I chose kindness as my one perfect word, I’m trying to have my cake and eat it too. Have an intention but be open to going with the flow. Pack those things that support my intention to write: laptop, notebooks, prompts, project binder. But also make a loose list of things I want to do: visit Café Books to browse and have a tea and biscuit, scope out the public library and art

gallery at Elevation Place, wash the car in the hotel’s parkade, prowl through the thrift shop for books, walk, eat Vietnamese at Indochine, read, journal, write, cook, binge watch some movies. From this mountain getaway I pray that

everybody finishes their harvest soon, manages to keep the grain from heating, finds a market for it, and escapes with their solvency and mental health intact. Cuz frankly we need a change in luck from where I sit.

Franchise fee proposal nixed by Bruderheim town council Michelle Pinon Editor

Instead of zapping taxpayers with electrical franchise fees, Bruderheim town council moved rapidly to quash the idea during its first regular meeting since the municipal election on Wednesday, October 25. During a presentation from Vince Campbell, Stakeholder Relations Manager with Fortis

Alberta, Mayor Karl Hauch was quick to voice his opinion on the matter, stating that having a franchise fee would be like tagging on another expense to taxpayers which he felt would be “onerous” on residents. “Most communities have franchise agreements,” countered Campbell. Those franchise agreements would result in a separate monthly utility charge. Campbell said the fee

could range from one per cent all the way up to 20 per cent. What the company was proposing for the Town of Bruderheim would be a five per cent franchise fee. For example, a five per cent franchise fee would work out to a monthly charge of $3.11 per residential ratepayer. Collectively, that would amount to annual revenue of $36,471. That money would be put into the

town’s revenue stream. Campbell explained that Fortis collects the franchise fees and gives it back to the community. “Fortis doesn’t benefit by it.” He estimated that between only five to 10 communities in the entire province don’t have franchise fee agreements with Fortis Alberta. Councillor Pat Lee asked if the town would be approached yearly to see if it would like to

implement or renew its franchise fee agreement with the company. Coun. Lee also asked Campbell to verify the deadline date of November 1 in order for the town to participate, and Campbell said yes. Councillor Len Falardeau said that if the town could get taxes lower, that a franchise fee agreement “would be a great opportunity to raise money for projects in the future. Campbell pointing out that some of the neighbouring communities charge a seven per cent franchise fee. The fee would be capped at 20 per cent, he added. Even if council decided not to

enter into a franchise fee agreement at this time, Campbell said the door would still be left open in the future. Mayor Hauch suggested the town could even use no franchise fees as a marketing concept to attract residents. “We should let folks know we don’t charge a franchise fee,” noted Hauch, and use the idea as a selling feature to prospective residents and developers. Chief Administrative Officer Patty Podoborozny said that if council does not support the idea that no motion would be required at this time.

Cenovus Thanks & Giving supper draws appreciative crowd Michelle Pinon Editor

Even before the second annual Cenovus Thanks & Giving turkey dinner was over on Thursday, October 19 John Hogue was telling guests at the Bruderheim Seniors Centre that he would see them next year. The Senior Health & Safety Advisor at Cenovus’ Bruderheim Energy Terminal joked that he’d start cooking the feast tomorrow. His warm smile and sense of humour was a hit, along

with the hospitality of six of his colleagues, during the appreciation event which drew a crowd of 70 people. Bruderheim Seniors Centre President Lorna Lawrence welcomed everyone, and thanked Cenovus for hosting the meal, and for local caterer Elk Island Catering for preparing and cooking the turkey and all the trimmings. Bruderheim Seniors Centre Vice President Pat Lee commented on how nice it was to see everyone, and hoped they’d enjoy the thanksgiving

dinner. “It’s great to see the support of the community. You guys are a fantastic group here.” She also thanked Cenovus for the company’s generosity. Mayor Karl Hauch, commended Cenovus, “our great corporate neighbours” and thanked them as well for putting on such a great event. Cenovus has been involved in several other community initiatives since the company purchased the crude oil trans-loading facility in 2015. Some of these ini-

tiatives have included: in-kind furniture donations to the Town of Bruderheim, donations towards the Bruderheim School library and the school’s hot breakfast, lunch and milk program, an investment in the Metro Kalyn Community Library to celebrate Canada 150, donations to the Lamont County Food Bank, the Town of Bruderheim Christmas Hamper Program as well as to the Lamont County Emergency Services for the Regional Training Facilty.

All creatures great and small: Mundare students explore the world of animals SUBMITTED ARTICLE In largely rural communities, it’s not unusual for children to grow up around animals of all sizes. Not surprisingly, when Mundare School polled its students about developing new junior high option programming last year, many expressed an interest in learning more about livestock and pets. The school responded by launching a new option course called animal husbandry. “We have a lot of rural students and every year, they express a huge interest in animals,” says Jason Lafrance, the teacher who developed and instructs the new course. “We’re able to

tap into that enthusiasm and provide them not only with important information about animal biology and welfare, but also hands-on experience in animal care and safety.” Currently, 39 students in grades 7 and 8 are studying horses and discussing equine behavioural attributes, basic needs, training, transportation and safety of both the handler and the animal. To complement what students are learning, horses are brought to the school so students can put what they’ve learned into action while under close supervision. “I’m really excited about this class,” says Rian Theroux, a Grade 8 student at Mundare School. “We’re getting a

chance to learn about horses, dogs, cattle, small pets and birds. I like that we get to actually work with the animals and practice what we’re being taught.” In addition to Lafrance, a practicing veterinarian helps guide the curriculum that’s taught throughout the course. Other topics students will learn about include nutrition, basic health, disease identification, treatment and prevention. “Combined with the experience that a lot of these students already gained by growing up in a rural area, we’re able to run a program that will positively impact them, whether that’s by raising livestock, choosing a

career in animal care or by becoming responsible

pet owners,” says Lafrance. “This is the

kind of class that reaches kids on several levels.”

Lamont Figure Skating Club offers fun for everyone Michelle Pinon Editor

Heading up to the stands in the Lamont Arena I could see several familiar and friendly faces. Then Gennine Bilodeau waved to say hello. The President of the Lamont Figure Skating Club (LFSC) looked totally relaxed late Tuesday afternoon during practice. Other parents and children looked equally at ease whether they were watching the skaters, doing homework, texting on their phones, or talking to each other. The atmosphere was so laid back, and it was a joy to see the young skaters smile and wave at their

parents or grandparents sitting in the bleachers. Then it was time to get a few action photos of the skaters, who range in age from three to teenagers. Bilodeau says they have 35 skaters to date, but they can accept new participants up until Christmas time. The various groups consist of: KidSkate, three to six year olds; CanSkate, five to 11-year-olds, Junior StarSkate, eight to 10year-olds. The club also offers additional lessons for girls and boys who chose to skate competitively. Some of the older skaters are polishing up their programs for upcoming competitions, while the younger

skaters are focused on learning some of the basic skills like stopping, hopping, getting up, falling down, learning edges, etc. “Its not too late to come on board,” says Bilodeau, who says skating is a great past-time chalked full of fun while getting physical exercise and enjoying social interaction. So if you’re looking at something funfilled and affordable for the kids to do this winter, why not give skating a whirl?

Program assistant Billie Bilodeau leads the group of skaters while fellow assistant James Harding keeps a watchful eye during a recent practice.

The Chipman 4-H Beef and Multi-Club is looking for alumni 4-Her’s and leaders to help with our 75th year anniversary; even if it is still a year away, planning takes time.

Have you or a loved one ever had difficulty taking or tolerating certain medications? Youʼre not alone. Many people experience issues such as the following: • Stomach upset when taking certain oral medication.

• Eczema, Psoriasis, and other skin disorders. • Reluctance to take the medication due to its taste. • Requiring a different dose of medication than that which is available from a manufacturer. A compounding pharmacist may be able to provide solutions for challenges such as these. Working closely with the patient and the prescriber, compounding gives the pharmacist the means to customize medication to meet the individual needs of each patient.

WE NOW HAVE A “PRESCRIBING PHARMACIST” Who can help prescribe something in case you need an urgent care before your family doc becomes available and/or what the Pharmacist may conceive as useful for patients.

EIPS board elects chair and vice-chair Sherwood Park, AB. At the October 26 organizational board meeting, the Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) Board of Trustees formally elected by acclamation Trina Boymook as Board Chair. Additionally, Heather Wall was elected Vice-Chair. These individuals will lead the Board of Trustees for the 2017-18 school year. Board Chair Boymook was first elected in October 2013, representing Sherwood Park and this is her fifth term as Board Chair. Boymook worked in several leadership roles including as president of the Alberta School Councils’ Association (ASCA), chair of EIPS’ Committee of School Councils and a representative on various Alberta Education stakeholder advisory committees. Boymook is a vocal advocate for education and has worked diligently for years to ensure children and parent concerns are heard in the classroom, in schools and in the boardroom. “It has been my privilege to serve on the Board for the past five years,” says Boymook. “I look forward to working with my fellow EIPS

trustees. Over the coming year, we’ll continue enhancing public education and student working environments, with a focus on promoting growth and success for all EIPS students.” Vice-Chair Wall was first elected to the Board in October 2013, representing Fort Saskatchewan. It is her first term as Board ViceChair. Her background includes several leadership roles and 25 plus years working as a registered nurse. Wall believes strongly, literacy is the building block of all education and is necessary for children to achieve their individual level of excellence. “I consider it a great privilege to be elected as Vice-Chair,” says Wall. “I look forward to the coming year as we continue to focus on maintaining the high-quality education our students receive.” At the meeting, the Board of Trustees also approved its regular board meeting schedule, which is now available. EIPS has a nine-member Board representing approximately 17,150 students and their families in Sherwood Park,

This was part of the U of A Senate’s USchool program, which sees over 30 schools from communities under-represented at the university participate to inspire an interest in post-secondary education. Andrew’s students connected their project on the Metis burial ground south of Andrew with their studies at the university for the week. This is the second group of students to attend USchool from Andrew, which we hope to make a continuing tradition as we pursue our school goal of developing lifelong learners.

Private meeting upsets and disappoints newly appointed Lamont County councillors Michelle Pinon Editor

The organizational meeting of Lamont County council went as planned on Tuesday, October 24, that was until rookie councillor Neil Woitas began asking questions. The newly elected councillor for division five requested permission to ask a couple of questions, and was told now was as a good a time as any, and to fire away. His initial question was asking why he was not informed of a meeting on Friday, October 20. A meeting, he asserted, was held behind closed doors. Reeve Wayne Woldanski said the meet-

Division Five Councillor Neil Woitas ing was of an “emergent nature” and “confidential” and that Chief Administrative Officer Robyn Singleton could bring him up to date. But Woitas interjected by saying that that meeting was not in accordance with the MGA (Municipal Government Act). Singleton told Woitas that he was absolutely correct, there was a meeting, and that the meeting was held because of issues arising from the development agreement. “I’d be happy to brief you,” offered Singleton. But Woitas said that council did not have authority to do so, so until after all members of council were officially sworn in. Grasping papers in his hand, Woitas said he had received information from an advisor with

Municipal Affairs who indicated that as of 12 Noon on Friday, October 20, election results were official and no other county business should have been discussed until after the organizational meeting because there were officially two new county councillors elected. Again Singleton offered to meet with Woitas as soon as he had time to speak with him. “All I’m getting at is there better not be any more secret meetings,” stated Woitas. He also reiterated that the old council was dissolved at the time of that meeting according to the MGA. “I’d be happy to follow up with that at the Nov. 14 meeting,” stated Singleton. He also pointed out there were a number of pieces of information discussed they were not bound by under the confidentiality agreement. Reeve Woldanski said, “It was a time sensitive issue that had to be dealt with.” Dave Diduck, the newly elected councillor for division three said that while he could appreciate the reeve may have to sign cheques, but as a council member he was “extremely disap-

pointed” if council business was being discussed. Diduck said that maybe they (he and Woitas) should have signed the confidentiality agreement so they could partake in the discussion. Diduck said that in the future he would want to be apprised of any meetings. Singleton said that once he and Woitas had been briefed he would realize the reason why he and Woitas

brief you,” offered Singleton. Woitas asked Diduck if that would be acceptable, and shortly after the reorganizational meeting was adjourned the two men left council chambers to meet with the CAO. When asked to com-

ment following that meeting with the CAO Coun. Woitas said the CAO explained what the meeting and the discussions were about, and had nothing further to say. Coun. Diduck did not have any follow up comment regarding the

meeting with the CAO. Coun. Woitas agreed with Coun. Diduck’s earlier comment stating,, “If we all work together then we can work as a team.” Coun. Woitas said a ratepayer informed him about the Oct. 20 meeting.
