concerns regarding drivers speeding along 45th Street. ECA Review Reporter The speed bumps are typically installed in the summer A request to reinstall speed bumps on 45th Street in Castor months and removed in the winter for plowing purposes. was addressed by Council at “We are avoiding putting its June 10 meeting. them back in because the The request came from a speed bumps are very hard on concerned citizen, although trucks,” said Jackson. CAO Sandi Jackson said sev“People were driving eral other taxpayers have around the speed bumps, close verbally expressed their

to the ditch, to avoid damaging their vehicles,” added Jackson. Jackson said Council is looking into putting up signs along 45th Street that would warn drivers to slow down. The speed limit along 45th Street is 40 kilometres but it has been reported that some drivers are going up to 60 kilometres or more when they are traveling down that street.

The County of Paintearth passed an unanimous motion June 18, 2013 to send a letter to Alberta Transportation asking it to extend the 80 kilometre speed reduction along Highway 12 half a mile east past Secondary Road 872 by Coronation. “This is a smart idea,” said George Glazier, County of Paintearth reeve. “With new developments along Highway 12, there will be a lot of traffic going through this area.” Council also passed a motion to pay $1,200 to install lights on the County’s regional response unit trailer. These lights would make the trailer visible at night when it is on the road. Currently, the trailer is not visible at night to drivers. Councillor Walter Weber made a motion to take money from the County’s restricted surplus to pay for the costs of installing proper lights. George Glazier noted that the lights should have been installed when the trailers were built and that it was imperative to fix the problem. Councillor Tony Nibourg and Councillor Rocky Dahmer opposed the motion. “Under the new Fire Services Agreement, the County only looks after fire and water trucks,” said Nibourg. “Towns

need to realize they’re getting the cheques for these costs now.” Tarolyn Peach reminded council that the Fire Services Agreement, which involves the County of Paintearth, the Towns of Castor and Coronation and the Village of Halkirk, begins July 1, 2013. “Towns will have to pay for any additional maintenance after July 1,” said Peach. Council carried the motion under the condition that future requests come July 1 be sent to the appropriate place. Council also unanimously passed a motion to grant the Town of Coronation’s request for funding for pool upgrades. The County decided to grant the Town $40,000 in funding from restrictive surpluses. That is close to 1/3 of what the Town is asking for. To date, the total cost for pool upgrades has been $266,000. So far, the Town of Coronation has found $130,000 in funding and is currently seeking funding for the remaining $160,000. This year, the County has $50,000 in available restrictive surplus funds to give to different recreational projects and upgrades. Council decided to save $10,000 from that total amount for other recreational projects and upgrades that might arise in the upcoming fall or winter.

Coronation Town council hears citizen concerns at public hearing On June 24 Coronation Town Council held a public hearing for the purpose of considering an amendment to the Town of Coronation’s Land Use by-law 2009-559. The Town has undertaken a new sub division of approximately 35.86 parcels of land to be used for 15 fully serviced light industrial lots south of Railway Avenue. Alan Shoemaker, owner of the RV Park

and Bunkhouse on the south east side of town, attended the public hearing and asked council to consider omitting the parcel of land behind his property from being rezoned or to keep it as an urban reserve. “We don’t want truck loads coming in at 4 a.m.” said Shoemaker. “If you set a reasonable price, I’ll consider buying it.”

Brownfield CRR Multi Club update Krystalee Huber Brownfield CRR Multi Club has finished for the year. Here are some of the highlights: we hosted public speaking events on February 18, 2013 and March 3, 2013. On February 18, 2013 at club level, Kyleen Wadstein and Krystalee Huber got first place in the junior level presentations. Dustin, Dallen and Jayden Kroeker got second and Cody Wadstein and Kylan Huber placed first in the intermediate presentations. In the senior level for speeches Colton Black got first, Tanner Black got second and Jalycia Huber got third. In intermediate Simon Cole got first place, Michael Black got second and Jeremy Burkinshaw got third. In the junior level Wade Black got first. Most of the members who placed in speeches moved on to semi-districts on March 3, which we also hosted. Simon Cole went on to District. Our club did a highway clean up on May 4, 2013. For our community service, we went to help clean up after the Little League Picnic at Burma Park. On June 11 we had our Achievement Day hosted at the Huber’s, including some fun events such as horse competitions, tool scrambles and dressing up a sheep. We got to wear our new 4-H shirts for the first time at achievement day. For horse the record book winners were Amber Burkinshaw in first place and

Riley Smith in second place. For small engines books Colton black got first place and Tanner Black got second place. Jalycia Huber got first place and Jaydon Huber got second place in the sheep and goat section. All in all it has been great year and we are looking forward to next year.

CAO Sandra Kulyk told Shoemaker to put his offer in writing and she would present it to council. Council said the parcel of land on the south east side of town could potentially be used for a new RCMP detachment. Council said this spot would be ideal because it would give the RCMP immediate access to Highway 12 and continued access to town. Kulyk said plans for a new RCMP detachment are in their preliminary stages and nothing is happening just yet. Council did not make any decisions during the hearing. Council approved Techmation Electric’s

application to construct a 60’ by 90’ office and warehouse in the new industrial subdivision. The proposed construction met all required minimum setbacks and size and height restrictions for construction. Techmation Electric estimated it will begin construction on July 2, 2013 and will be completed on November 1, 2013. CAO Sandra Kulyk said in her report to council that the Physician Recruitment and Retention Committee had three potential candidates. The physicians have been interviewed over the phone and site visits have been arranged for July and August.

In the summer of 1990, Sue Hendrickson found the fossilized bones of a T. rex when she was a fossil hunter for the Black Hills Institute of Geological Research in Hill City, South Dakota. The dinosaur she found is now named Sue, too! “I was pretty lucky,” says Sue. “But it does take more than just luck,” she admits. Sue knew the right kind of rock to explore because she understood about strata.

Highway 861 collapsed a depression wall now over two feet high and be thrown over the collapsed guard rail,” said Blumhagen. Blumhagen said that deterioration to the road began four years ago. A worker from Carillion also told Blumhagen the Alberta government was responsible for sourcing funds to fix the road. “This is a blatant disregard and insult to the life and wellbeing of constituents,” said Blumhagen. Vehicles and trucks carrying heavier loads now have to travel five miles east to the next river crossing on Highway 36.

A portion of Highway 861, less than one kilometre south of the Battle River Bridge, has collapsed. Alberta Transportation has contracted Carillion Canada to fix the problem. In an attempt to alleviate the situation, Carillion has put up two barricade signs around the collapsed portion of the road. Speed limits have also been reduced to 30 kilometres per hour for downhill traffic and 20 kilometres per hour for uphill.

Town of Castor sets fines for break and enters There was a recent break-in to Castor’s swimming pool. The RCMP, with the help of video surveillance, have identified the person who committed the offense. At the June 24 meeting, council set a fine of $200 for first time offenders who break into town property and $500 for second time offenders.

Jackson said the money from the fines will go into a ‘rewards fund’. Anyone who has tips regarding vandalism or thefts will be compensated for their help with money from the rewards fund. At the June 24 council meeting Castor councillors discussed a tax complaint they received from a citizen saying they didn’t

feel they should have to pay the standard $450 in property taxes each year because they felt their property was too small. CAO Sandi Jackson said she would write a letter in response to the person who complained saying that council decided every piece of residential property is worth at least $450 and that they will

continue to bill residents that amount each year. Also at this meeting, council decided on the appropriate signs to be erected on the south side of 45th Avenue to caution drivers to slow down. The sign will be similar to a children-crossing sign, but slightly larger.

Brady Smith remembered with tributes, an eulogy and obituary Brady James Smith was born in Coronation on December 10, 1993 and lived his whole life in Coronation. Brady attended kindergarten to grade 12 graduating from Coronation High School June, 2012. September 2012 Brady attended NAIT enrolled in Petroleum Engineer Tech program. After the school year he returned in May to Coronation and was employed with Husky as a summer student. While growing up in Coronation Brady loved his sports especially hockey. Brady and his Dad would watch the Oilers games and together analyze the plays. Brady began his own hockey Smith career at age five and played minor hockey up to his 18th birthday. He played Rec hockey and played a couple of months with the Stettler Lightening then returning back to Coronation Rec Hockey. In the summer he played ball and soccer and loved to golf with his Dad and this year he was finally able to attend men’s night. Many of Brady’s friendships began in kindergarten and are still cherished today. This circle grew with friendships developed with young people from other towns especially the Castor area. Mourning Brady’s sudden passing is his Dad and Mom, Jim and Beryl Smith; Sisters Tairsa (Blair) Glasier, Haley Smith (Brandon O’Connor); Nieces Jaidyn and Colbie Glasier; Grandmother Sonja Smith; Brady’s love Emily Breum, her parents Gord (Michelle) Breum and her sister Tess Breum; Grandpa and Grandma Filipenko, Grandpa and Grandma Olsted; numerous uncles, aunts, cousins, great uncles, great aunts and all his many friends. Brady was predeceased by his cousin Travis Glazier; his maternal Grandma Mabel Glazier, his uncle Danny Smith, his paternal Grandpa Marcus Smith and his maternal Grandpa Johnny Glazier. The memorial service to pay tribute to Brady James Smith was held on Saturday, June 22, 2013 at 2 p.m. at the Coronation Community Centre, Coronation, AB, with Reverend Sue Hertell officiating. The eulogy was given by Brady’s brother-in-law Blair Glasier. Sue Hertell read a poem, “When Tomorrow Starts Without Me”. Other tributes were by Brady’s sister, Haley Smith, his girlfriend, Emily Breum, and Brady’s close friends, Koby Sieger, Easton Cox, Dylan Usselman and Bradan McLean. Special recorded music was also played during the service. A touching letter from Brady’s Mom and Dad was read by Sue Hertell. A video tribute was played during the service which was prepared by Haley, Emily and many friends. Urn Bearers were Emily’s parents and sister, Gord, Michelle and Tess Breum. Honourary pallbearers were “All Brady’s Family and Friends” and “Everyone who shared in Brady’s life”. The interment will be at a later date. Following the service lunch was served and prepared by the Sunshine Club.

Eulogy by Blair Glasier I remember telling Brady that there would only be two reasons I would ever be in an Oilers jersey. First one was if they drafted me, which was not likely. Second, was if I was freezing. As it turns out there is a third. Brady James Smith was born in the Coronation Hospital December 10, 1993 to proud parents Jim and Beryl, and two delightful sisters; Tairsa 15 years his

senior and Haley 15 months his senior. I don’t think Haley remembers a day that Brady wasn’t in her life. Both Tairsa and Haley always wanted to help from bath time to helping feed him his food. Beryl didn’t mind, she knew she would get to rock and cuddle him later for as long as she wanted. Brady loved hanging out with his dad. They could be found going on drives to the farm, stopping at the Tasty Mill, or just hanging out in the back yard. Brady completed all his schooling in Coronation, kindergarten to grade 12 graduating in 2012. He and his girlfriend, Emily, moved to Edmonton in August. Brady completed his first year of Petroleum Engineering Tech. He had decided he would like to be close to home this summer and took a job with Husky as a summer student. He enjoyed the work and his co-workers. Brady had worked for M&N Construction for four summers. This he enjoyed, as he was able to spend the whole summer camping with his dad. He met a lot of great people and had a lot of fun. In the spring after school he worked at the golf course. He also volunteered along side his dad in projects at the golf course. Brady enjoyed sports! Winter meant hockey, which he loved. Many a cold and stormy day Brady and his mom would get in the car and head out to a game. Beryl would get a break when Jim was home to do the driving. The years that teams combined he would play with the Castor kids. This was a chance to make more friends for Brady and his parents. Brady was a smart player, which could be contributed to his seasons of watching hockey on TV. Oiler games were never missed. When Edmonton scored Jim and Brady would jump off the couch and give each other high fives. Just after the lockout, while Brady was living in Edmonton, he got tickets to three or four Oilers games from M&N. Then he didn’t get a call for a couple of weeks. He phoned Jim concerned that maybe Archie had lost his number. He played soccer and minor ball up to Bantam level, but with summer jobs found that golfing worked better with his schedule. Golfing was great because he could golf with his Dad. They would make bets on every hole. He was so excited when he turned 18 and was able to golf at men’s night. For two years in a row Jim and Brady have gone to Invermere on a father/son golf trip in May. Just two weekends ago he golfed in the 4-person best ball tournament with Easton, Bradley, and Cousin Daniel. Brady said he had the best time ever. They bought themselves in the Calcutta and won 2nd in the C event, winning $1500. I have since heard that even with their winnings they were still in the hole at the end of the weekend. Brady enjoyed his nieces Jaidyn and Colbie, and he and Emily would spend weekends at our house visiting and spoiling them. Even though, I trained Jaidyn to call him Auntie Brady. Brady was great with my girls but refused to change dirty diapers. He and Emily took Jaidyn to Breum’s farm at Easter to decorate eggs, see the chickens and horses. I am not sure if Jaidyn, Emily, or Brady had more fun. He enjoyed family vacations, especially the tropical ones, including Mexico and Cuba. He was able to experience Disneyland, fishing at Lac De Isles and camping in the mountains with the Breum’s. He could always count on Brandon to go hunting, fishing, or skiing. Brandon recalls two Christmas’s ago they entered in a coyote derby. The night before they sat up strategizing and conspiring how to win the derby. They woke up before sunrise and headed to Veteran Colony. They wanted to beat Daniel to his favourite spot. Their planning was a

success; Daniel was not impressed. Brady and Brandon then got stuck and had to resort to Daniel for help, but Daniel’s condition was that he receive one of their coyotes for pulling them out. This was not considered a fair trade, Brady and Daniel started wrestling over one of the coyotes. By the time they were done; there was nothing left of the one coyote. Needless to say Brandon and Brady won the derby with nine coyotes compared to Daniel’s three. Brady and I would discuss careers and finance. I always found it ironic that he would ask financial advice from a tradesman, when his mother is an Account Manager at the TD and his sister was a Financial Advisor. He had a special kind of charisma and an endearing personality. He was comfortable talking to everyone. It didn’t matter if you were 90 or nine, he could have a conversation with you. He was not always an angel. His mom and dad have the grey hairs to prove it. Although he did make them frustrated and sometimes downright angry we all loved each other and got over their disagreements. He had a temper and could throw some wicked fits but he matured into a responsible young man. Brady loved many things but most of all he loved life, his girlfriend Emily, his mom, dad, Tairsa, myself, Jaidyn, Colbie, Haley, Brandon, Gord, Michelle and little sister Tess. We know he was also loved in return by many friends, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Although Brady’s life was short he enjoyed everyday and his beautiful smile was proof of this.

Brady you will always be on our mind and in our heart.

Like a brother by Koby Sieger Brady was like a brother to me! It began as Haley and I being very good friends which eventually turned into Brady and I being best friends. Brady and I began to do everything together. Brady was my partner in golf, hunting, and he was my line mate on the ice. Turn to Pg 7

OPINION

Left behind Brenda Schimke

ECA Review Journalist How many times have landowners heard the mantra, “there’s no proven evidence to suggest that fracking affects well water formations.” “There’s no proven evidence that abandoned gas wells and pipelines adversely affect livestock herds.” It’s a hard balance in Alberta. The seduction of oil and gas money has created a love-hate relationship between landowners and oil companies. The newly acclaimed Responsible Energy Development Act puts an inordinate amount of power in a single Regulator leaving landowners with a sense of forebearing about the future. Guest speaker Anthony Swift at the Alberta Surface Rights Federation special meeting in Camrose on June 17, 2013, encouraged the crowd to not give up the fight. He argues the most powerful player in the debate is the public, when they become engaged. Given the number and extent of recent pipeline spills, he believes the public can apply pressure to make The public can a better system of regulatory standards and apply pressure to make enforcement. Swift argued that the system a better system of will not change until the industry-friendly reguregulatory standards lators and governments are pushed. and enforcement. Social media has been one of the most effective ways for people to come together against powerful people and governments. We need look no farther than Egypt, Turkey, Libya to know that people banded together have power. And it’s not just landowners who have concerns. Many young urban Albertans are starting to wonder what the future will hold for them if the high pace of development and disregard for environment continues. A group of students from the University of Alberta, Augustana Campus in Camrose, have started a website albertavoices.ca. Raj Rathnavalu and Hans Asfeldt attended the Surface Rights meeting to talk about how their web page tells ordinary stories from ordinary Albertans about situations they have faced in interacting with the arrogance of the energy industry in Alberta. Currently on the site there are eight such stories. The more stories that are complied with pictures, the more powerful landowner’s will become. The Alberta Surface Rights Federation has also been an effective body disseminating information to landowners and representing a collective voice to government. The federal and provincial governments and the oil industry ignored Greenpeace and the International community at their peril. Alberta is now fighting an uphill battle to sell and transport its oil sand production. It will also be at their peril if they continue to ignore its citizen’s concerns about balancing economic growth with environmental and property rights. The majority of Albertans want to co-exist with the energy industry. They know the importance of energy development for their economic well-being. But they are also wise enough to realize that once industry has scooped up all the resources, they will be gone and Albertans will be left. Planning for tomorrow, today, let’s be assured that there will be something good left for all those grandchildren and great-grandchildren coming behind.

ECA REVIEW

Cont’d from Pg 5 We played Minor Hockey and Rec Hockey with the Hounds since we began playing. We also liked to have our fair share of Bud Lites together. Beryl and Jim’s home was always open for me. Brady would make me a bed on the couch beside his bedroom all the time. Brady loved to hunt! We spent countless numbers of days in the Black Chevy; cruising fields and shooting guns. This year we managed to grab our last mule together. It was hard to get any serious hunting done, we were either busy partying or hauling furniture in the mornings for Beryl. As soon as we were awake Beryl would ask us to help her out. Brady even asked if we could not stay at his house anymore to avoid Beryl putting us to work. We decided we would start staying at our farm. That didn’t work out either as we got put to work hauling couches at our house too. Brady couldn’t believe we got put to work, he would roll his eyes and shake his head but he did it with his gigantic smile and said “You have got to be kidding me!” Jim came home for a couple days and we told him we wanted to go out with him in the morning to find some deer. Sure enough Brady and I stayed out until the break of dawn partying and then decided we should head home to get a little shuteye. Jim heard us come in the house and was sure that we wouldn’t get up to go hunting. This probably didn’t bother him too much as it was minus 40 outside. Brady and I got a 45 minute power nap and then Jim came downstairs to wake us up, in search of some big deer. We got out the 202’s and headed out to look for our deer. Just when we thought we were getting to an area that may have deer Brady made us stop the truck so that he could get out of the truck. Brady had to puke so this probably managed to scare

O B I T UA RY some of the deer away. I just started hunting three years ago and I am thankful that Brady and Jim took me in and taught me the ropes. I am very glad that I got to shoot my first deer with Brady and Jim! I bagged a real nice White Tail! Unfortunately it was the last deer we got together but I will cherish the time we spent and the fun we had. With the countless hours of playing hockey with Brady he became a great hockey player! We had many winning seasons and a couple years of provincials which Brady was a very strong part of our team. He had many good moves which he learnt from watching his favourite hockey, the Edmonton Oilers. He loved to do the big-toe drag that amazed me. It still worked on people after years of him doing it. Brady wouldn’t miss a game for anything; he lived for the dream of being an Oiler himself one day. The many Oilers games I got to attend with him were unbelievable! He made them such a blast that I always went home with a smile on my face; regardless if the Oilers won or not. Lately that was more often a loss but he remained true to the Oilers. Brady and I also attended a couple of World Juniors games in Edmonton. He would call me up and say that M & N had one extra ticket and would ask if I wanted to come. We were lucky enough to go to the New Year’s Eve Canada/USA game. We had first row seats right at the red line behind the penalty boxes. When we headed down to our seats we noticed a good looking girl sitting in one of the seats right beside ours. We ended up having a little bit of a pushing match trying to be the one that got to sit by the good looking girl. As we all know Brady was a smooth talker! He always had something smart to say and he said exactly what was on his mind. He believed in what he spoke, he had a strong will and didn’t take anything

from anyone! He would argue for hours with you if it were what he believed in. A lot of the time you could see that smirk come out in his face and he would just be arguing to get you going. I had the opportunity to see this many times over the years between him and Haley. He would work hard at pushing her buttons. Even though he liked to do this, if someone ever pushed her buttons besides himself, he was ready to scrap. Over the years we heard many funny things come out of Brady’s mouth. It was always followed by his wild laugh. I will always remember the story of Brady coming home one day and Beryl asked him if he had been drinking. Brady answered with a big smile and said “No Mom I am sober as a bird….tweet, tweet.” Another one of his favourite lines was used when he had invited the boys over to stay at his house after a long night. We would ask if we could come sleep over and Brady always answered sure Beryl is all right with that. We always knew that he hadn’t really asked his Mom. Now I have one more short story that I would like to share of Brady’s clever thinking. Back in middle school Brady and Bradley both asked Taylor to a school dance. Taylor had trouble deciding who she should go with. Brady sat down with Taylor and Bradley and explained to her; “Now lets put it this way Taylor, you can either have steak and pointed to himself or you can have roast beef and pointed to Bradley!| Years later in high school Brady began to bring Emily around. He was so happy with the way things were with them. He was ecstatic that he had found someone that would put up with our crazy late nights. Oh and let me tell you Emily did have to learn to put up with that. Brady once told her to go lay in bed and start a movie and that he’d be back in five minutes because

he was going to drop me off at the bar. Well five minutes turned into hours and we returned home at 6:30 in the morning. Let me tell you it was a good night. We came back to Smith’s and we woke Emily up. Brady told her it was 7:30 and that she was going to be late for work. She jumped up, got dressed and didn’t even bother to look at the clock. If she would have, she would have known she was being pranked. She still could have slept for another hour if she would have checked. I am sure there were many nights where she thought about hurting us. Brady had such a deep love for Emily that you would constantly be hearing things about her and her family. Brady’s favourite joke he’d tell us and especially Em was that he needed to stay close to Gord and Michelle that way when Tess turned 18 they wouldn’t be surprised when he traded Emily in. Jokes aside… Em the way that he looked at you was a tremendous feeling. We all knew how much he loved you! You were his way of life and that got him through everything. Brady You were a Great Man, and you were such a great friend to all of us. We shared an unconditional friendship that can never be replaced. You will be remembered by that amazing smile and the energy you brought to everyone. Good- bye my friend; Until another day!

My shadow by Haley Smith Brady was born exactly 15 months after me on December 10th of 1993 and I on September 10th of ’92. Mom brought him home and she said I didn’t have a jealous bone in my body. I was so happy to have a baby brother to play with. I was happy to share moms’ knee with my beautiful brother. Turn to Pg 8

Cont’d from Pg 9 We got together many times for suppers, drinks and hockey games with many of our friends. Before and after supper anytime, that we got together, we would have a few Cuban cigars on the deck and it didn’t matter how cold it was outside. We’d bundle up with coats and a couple blankets and each wear one of Emily’s wool mitts and have our meeting. We’d sit out there while Emily watched from the nice warm house, thinking we were crazy. There’s no doubt in my mind that the reason why my grades were in the shape they were this year is because Brady and I took our night lives more seriously than school or work. I was late a few classes or missed a few classes all together, but I wouldn’t want it any other way and am honoured to be able to have these memories spent with Brady. Brady, you gave everyone a reason to smile without even trying, we love you and miss you, and I’ll be seeing you again to pick up where we left off with a Ceasar and a Cuban cigar.

in a row. But, that moisture comes with a hefty potential cost: a high pathogen load in the soil and stubble going into the 2013 season. This, combined with today’s increasingly tight rotations, means this year could prove a troublesome season for disease. “Especially over the last five years, we’ve seen a dramatic shift to a canola, cereal, canola rotation. While it is probably pretty profitable in the short term, what it brings with it is a much greater risk of disease. Add wet years like we’ve had and the risk just goes up even more,” says, an Agriculture and Agri-food Canada research scientist in Lacombe. “If we have another wet year this year, producers will need to be extremely careful about disease management.” Pathogens that cause the majority of diseases can easily survive two or more years in soil or stubble. As such, if you plant according to a two year rotation, look to the disease pressures you had in 2011 to give a good indication of some

Leaf diseases continue to cost growers the most in lost yield. Given that the best way to stay ahead of scald and blotch is rotation, practice a three to four year crop and / or variety rotation. Consult

Be extra vigilant in scouting for key diseases that are on the move. Stripe rust was newly found in multiple areas around Edmonton and as far north as Barrhead, which is not surprising given

reported across central Alberta, and damaging levels are occurring in irrigated parts of southern Alberta. Finally, blackleg, which is all over the province, appears to be breaking through the resistance of some canola varieties. To give yourself a fighting chance against disease, prepare your fungicide plans early. A dense crop canopy, while excellent for yield, will hold in moisture and foster disease development. Therefore, if you have a strong, vigorously growing young crop, protect your yield potential by applying fungicide at the earliest stage recommended on the product label. “A wait and see approach doesn’t work for some diseases. If you’ve got a disease like sclerotinia, once you see the symptoms of the disease in the crop, it’s already too late to spray,” says Turkington.

Time to raise the bar on regulatory standards Brenda Schimke

ECA Review Reporter Anthony Swift was the guest speaker at the Special meeting of the Alberta Surface Rights Federation in Camrose on June 17. Swift, an attorney with the International Program at the Natural Resources Defense Council in Washington, D.C., is a fourth generation oil-family Texan. He knows first-hand small towns in Texas that no longer have a water source. Swift’s expertise and passion is in fossil fuel subsidies, energy markets and pipeline safety.

Pipeline failures “There is an increasing number of pipeline failures occurring”, said Swift and “it’s time to raise the bar on regulatory standards and enforcement.” There have been 30,000 spills in Alberta over the last 37 years and they are growing in frequency and severity. “It’s logical for more leaks to occur in older pipelines, but the number of relatively new pipelines with catastrophic failures is alarmingly high,” said Swift. Swift highlighted two recent events. The two-year old TransCanada pipeline between Cushing, OK and Houston, TX is

currently having 70 sections dug up to replace faulty pipes and redo shoddy welding. In its first year of operation, it had 14 spills and had to be shut down. It’s been known for some time in the industry that off-shore steel manufacturers often do not meet standards, yet the price is cheap. In the case of this TransCanada pipeline, steel had been purchased from Russian and Indian suppliers. Heavier types of crude, with a molasseslike consistency, create a lot more friction as it moves through the pipeline. This resultant increase in temperature causes quicker corrosion which directly relates to more frequent pipeline failures. Alberta pipelines are year over year moving a larger percentage of higher temperature bitumen from the oilsands. When queried as to how our pipeline system rates with the United States, Swift said, “The Alberta pipeline system compares to the United States in that they both average a similar frequency of spills per mile.” “However, those figures hide the fact that the U.S. pipeline system is twice as old as the Alberta system,” said Swift.

Economics “Alberta’s economy and the wealth of its

people are predicated on moving bitumen to markets at a competitive price,” said an audience member. “We can’t put so many regulations in place that it makes our oil industry unprofitable.” Swift agreed. “The ability to build a spill-proof pipeline is not feasible, but other countries are using available technologies to detect leaks and are doing better,” responded Swift. “For example, Germany’s regulations require three overlapping systems to detect leaks. It’s a combination of external cables, acoustic sound monitors and chemical sensors. None of these are cost prohibitive, but the different sensors provide better coverage for identifying different types of leaks. In sharp contrast, Canada and the United States use dated technology including watching pressure changes and comparing in and out volumes, aerial discoveries or individuals on the ground stumbling across a leak. The recent spillage of 9.5 million litres of wastewater from an Apache pipeline near Zama City in northwestern Alberta was detected by air. It wasn’t reported to ERCB for six days and it was the public, not ERCB, who broke the news 12 days after the massive leak was first

discovered. In 2011, the Plains Midstream Canada Rainbow pipeline crossing the Woodland Cree Reserve leaked sweet crude for eight hours and the pipeline was shut on and off three times, even as alarms kept ringing. After the spill was identified it took seven hours for the company to advise ERCB. Less than a year later, Plains Midstream Canada had another major spill when a pipeline under the Red Deer River, polluted the river and Little Buffalo Lake.

Clean-Up Since pipelines move a variety of different products that behave differently, spilled products also behave differently when they migrate to a water source. Natural gas evaporates, light crude stays on the surface making it easier to contain and scoop up, heavy crude or bitumen sinks to the bottom. The 825,000 gallons of bitumen spilled into the Kalamazoo River has been the most expensive on-shore pipeline spill in history, costing TransCanada upwards of $1 billion, and giving opponents to the Keystone Pipeline much ammunition. Although the river looks pristine today, the recovery is incomplete as most of the bitumen immediately sunk to the bottom, co-mingled with the river base and continues to migrate. It is predicted that 42 miles of the river will be lost as an ecosystem.

Regulations & Enforcement Swift argues that “significant spills happen that should never happen.” An Enbridge pipeline in the NWT that leaked 66,000 barrels of oil from a pinhole crack could have been caught much earlier if a high-tech detection system were in place,” said Swift. Another example was the Rainbow pipeline spill. The National Energy Board (NEB) had identified problems some years before at that location, but because it fell under the jurisdiction of the ERCB, nothing was done to force Plains Midstream Canada to take preventative measures. Canada doesn’t publish spill records, the United States does. But the American record is far from stellar, as their pipeline companies’ detection systems miss 19 out of 20 leaks, or four or five leaks that consist of 160,000 barrels and over,” said Swift. In Alberta you can find out about spill records for $8 a record. With 30,000 spills, it would cost a mere $240,000 to get the same information that is provided for free in the United States. Canada’s regulations require that a company must detect a leak that amounts to five-per cent of its total capacity in one hour, two per cent in one week, and one per cent in a month. “Depending on the size of the pipeline, 100,500 barrels of crude can leak into the environment over a month and does not have to be detected, or 5,000 barrels can go missing a day, and the government is okay with that,” said Swift. “Any time you create a system with less public oversight rather than more, it should be concerning,” concluded Swift.

ALLIANCE

Have you got your float ready for July 1st parade? I had an interesting week last week and tried to send the news in but it seemed to get lost in cyberspace. Peter and I were in Charlottetown, PEI for a meeting of the Federated Women’s Institutes of Canada. I had the meetings, Peter had the tour. I think that I am holding my own with these dynamic ladies but it sure is a steep learning curve. We will be initiating some changes to improve communication within our organization and doing some health information workshops. After the meeting we had a chance to get together with pen pals that I have had for a few years. Kaye Larken had dinner with us at the Dunes where we enjoyed the fabulous garden afterward. Annie McPhail joined us for breakfast the next morning and had set aside her whole day for us including the ride to the airport. Annie lives at Argyle Shores on a farm. Their farm goes right down to the water. She took us there to her 150 year old house where we picked up husband Ewan to continue touring. There is a halibut farm near them and also a facility where fish are vaccinated for disease. The third pen pal, Aletha Mullally joined us for lunch at the Irish pub where she took me four years ago. What a wonderful day we had. It was the first time that Peter had met these people. It is a small world. On the plane from Toronto to Charlottetown, I sat beside, Ronald MacLellan a mechanic from

Whitehorse. Of course, I had to ask him if he knew Clint Carpenter, Doug Solonick Wendy Phillips and he did. He asked me if I knew Dave Haight and Penny who moved to a little town like Galahad. I do, they are the neighbours to the west of us. Small world. Have you got your float ready for July 1st parade? That is coming up fast. It is going to be a busy weekend in Alliance with the usual Canada Day celebrations, sports, and the 100th anniversary of the Women’s Institute. The Friends of the Battle River Railway are excited to have the passenger car available for a trip to Heisler after the anniversary celebrations. On June 30, the Argyle branch of Women’s Institutes will celebrate 100 years of service in the community of Alliance. There will be a program open to the public with cake and coffee/tea/juice served after. Come along and hear of some of the things we have accomplished. It was market this week. Sheila Bateman of Veteran and friend from Castor were to the market for the first time. If you haven’t played Bunnock or Croquet, come on out July 1 and join in the fun in the arena. There will be a market in the arena too. Vendors are excited to come and market their wares to a different crowd on Canada Day. There will also be face painting, balloon art, car show after the parade which is after the pancake breakfast.

Elnora celebrates 100 years Brenda Schimke

ECA Review Reporter The welcome arrival of the sun provided a beautiful morning for the parade on Saturday, June 22, 2013 at Elnora’s Founder Days. The parade had 60 entrants and over 120 participants making it one of the largest Elnora parades ever. Organizers were pleased that approximately 800 to 900 people were in attendance over the weekend. In 1906, Dan May homesteaded the present site of Elnora. In 1908, the settlement Elnora was named after Nora Edwards and Elinor Hogg two of the first female pioneers in the area, who cared for the sick and acted as midwives. By 1911, there were homes, small businesses, a school, post office, community hall and the first telephone line into town. In 1913 the Grand Truck Pacific Railway was built through Elnora. Within a few years, the store, creamery, boarding house and rifle range from nearby Lakeview were relocated to Elnora. The reason the weekend was called Founder Days was to celebrate the 100th anniversary since the arrival of the railway in Elnora. The highlight of the weekend for many was the Quilt Cakes. Organizers had asked each founding family to decorate a cake to form a

quilt. Participation was great with 70 families contributing —each using a unique and creative way to display their heritage through icing and decorations. The Official Welcome hosted by Elnora Mayor, Rob Allen, was opened with a Metis ceremonial dance by John Sinclair and his son Jessie. Politicians in attendance were The Hon. Cal Dallas, Red Deer MLA on behalf of Premier Allison Redford, Jim Wood, Mayor of the County of Red Deer, Earl Dreeshen, MP for Red Deer and Kerry Towle, MLA, InnisfailSylvan Lake. Other events included a Show n’ Shine with 65 cars participating, tour of the school, a cemetery tour, Elnora Ag Society supper and fireworks. Entertainment was provided by locals including Ray Duft and Dee Hodgkinson on Friday evening, and Radi Boulton, Off the Rails (Cheek family) and Precious Cargo (Thompson family) on Saturday evening. David Richardson, Alex Hogg’s great-great grandson preached at the Sunday morning interdenominational church service with the Community Choir leading the singing. Alex Hogg had been an original founding member of the Union Presbyterian Church in Elnora. “It was something really great”, said area resident, Ruth Cheek, “to see so many people come home.”

Jim and Donna Kindle’s grandchildren from Red Deer, Ryan and Jessica race for the candy thrown from the Balkwill Pharmacy 100th anniversary Founders parade entry.

• Snipped from Ian Hamilton’s column in the Regina Leader-Post: “Several U.S. senators sent a letter to the Washington Redskins, asking them to change their name. “In a perfect world,” scribbled comedy writer Alex Kaseberg, “the Redskins write back: ‘You’re right, it is an awful and disgraceful name we should be horribly humiliated by and ashamed; it conjures up memories of a truly criminal history. From now on we are the District of Columbia Redskins.’ “ • AP golf writer Doug Ferguson on final day fashion at the U.S. open: “(Billy) Horschel wore pants with octopus prints, and he putted like he had eight arms.“ • Golf writer Dan Jenkins on Twitter, as reported on golfworldmonday.com: “Charl has made three bogeys and a double in his last four holes. In South Africa, that’s known as Schwartzeling your pants.” • Greg Cote of the Miami Herald: “Tim Tebow signed with the Patriots. ‘Belichick owed me a favor,’ explained Jesus.” • The Sports Curmudgeon: “Absent a situation whereby Tom Brady undergoes multiple amputation surgeries, there is no way Tebow is going to ‘compete for’ the starting QB role (with New England).” • Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle: “Pablo Sandoval is too short. His weight of about 270 would be fine if he were seven feet tall. So he needs to grow 13 inches or lose 50 pounds.” • Comedy writer Jim Barach: “Joe Torre’s daughter caught a baby that fell from a second-floor fire escape in Brooklyn. Major League Baseball will issue a statement congratulating her just as soon as she is tested for PEDs.”

• R.J. Currie of sportsdeke. com: “Kobe Bryant of the Lakers isn’t sure he’ll be ready for the start of next season. He’s recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon and a strained coaching relationship.” • Another one from Currie: “Hayley Wickenheiser says the University of Calgary helped her get a degree by planning exams around her hockey schedule. In response, NCAA athletes have said, ‘Exams’?” • Brad Dickson of the Omaha (Neb.) WorldHerald, not impressed with Louisville’s uniforms at the College World Series: “Players look like they came from a garage sale at Lady Gaga’s house.” • Headline at SportsPickle. com: “Tiger Woods back to not being back.” • Blogger TC Chong, on Ottawa’s new CFL team, the RedBlacks: “Their logo will be a checkerboard.” • Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel, on the poor play in the finals by Miami’s Chris Bosh: “Does Bosh actually get a championship ring or just a participatory ribbon?” Care to comment?
