Alberta Finance Minister “surprised” at lack of consultation on securities regulation Katie Davis

News Reporter A statement issued from Alberta Treasury Board President and Minister of Finance Doug Horner on September 19, 2013 expressed surprise that a new cooperative common securities regulation was not discussed with his person prior to being announced. “I am only learning of this agreement now and will need time to review it before understanding it’s full implications,” Horner said in the email, “I am surprised that all the provinces were not consulted on this proposal before it was announced.”

An announcement by Federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty September 19 in Ottawa stated an agreement between British Columbia, Ontario and Canada to establish a cooperative capital markets regulatory system.

Regulation features An online briefing of the Ottawa announcement on the Department of Finance website notes that the system -which it invites all provinces to participate in - will “better protect investors, enhance Canada’s financial services sector, support efficient capital markets and manage systemic risk.”

Castor Air Cadets not moving Katie Davis

News Reporter In an email received on September 18, 2013 it was noted by a Coronation resident that the Squadron Sponsoring Committee (SSC) was informed that 572 Castor Air Cadets Squadron was being moved to Stettler. The Coronation resident said that this was done without prior discourse with parents and those involved with the Cadets in the area, and that many were very upset with this information. Stan Monkman, Director of Public Relations for the Alberta Provincial Committee of the Air Cadet League of Canada, responded to this information by saying that the news being circulated was a faulty interpretation of information. “The squadron is not moving,” Monkman said in an interview, “the information that was let out the other day was a misinterpretation of facts.” He said the individual who released the information and spoke of the Squadron definitively being moved to Stettler was misapprehending the truth of the matter. “The Squadron is in Castor, and we will maintain it’s viability as best we can,” Monkman said. He said there was talk of moving the Squadron due to the size of Castor relative to the population base of Stettler. He noted that there are about 20 Air Cadets in Castor at present; mostly from outlying communities around the town. “The only problem is that we have... insufficient adult volunteers to run the squadron,” said Monkman. He said that currently there is one ‘Blue Suiter’ or Cadet Instructor Cadre, which denotes a

member of the Canadian Forces that is tasked with the supervision, administration and training of Cadets. Monkman said there is only one Cadet Instructor Cadre in Castor at the moment, “and the Squadron needs a minimum of four, and preferably five, adults to help run the Squadron.” “We are hoping by working with the parent group in Castor to build up those numbers,” Monkman said, “and we have to do that rather quickly. It’s going to be a bit of an uphill battle... to get the qualified people in there.” Monkman said most adults will qualify but that adults with some specialities are needed as well. He said that parents should be actively seeking persons to assist with the squadron, with the intent that “these persons will eventually be signed on to the squadron, and they become either Cadet Instructor Cadre officers, or Civilian Instructors,” also know as CI’s. Monkman noted that CI’s and Military Officers are paid positions by the Department of National Defense. Monkman acknowledged the good work that the Cadets do in the community and how important the institution is to character-building. Monkman said he would not be present at a meeting concerning the Stettler issue slated for Monday, September 23 in Castor, but he noted that the Provincial Chairman and Director of the Central Wing would be in attendance. He said the meeting would establish with the parent group - which he stressed was extremely important to the life of the program - to ensure they have the tools available to them to go out and bring in new instructors.

Stettler Council approved additional $375,000 for storm main completion Brenda Schimke

News Journalist An additional $375,000 will be pulled from Reserves to fund the completion of the storm main in Blair Boulevard from Red Willow Creek to the service road south of Highway 12. Director of Operations for the Town of Stettler Melissa Robbins was in attendance at the September 17, 2013 Council meeting to explain the overage. The project was originally designed and budgeted to add a twin main. During the design phase, however, it was determined that there wasn’t enough room to twin the main and make the pipe large enough to provide enough capacity to handle the storm water. The tenders instead requested replacing the existing corrugated steel pipe with one 1200 x 1800 concrete box culvert. The options facing Council were do nothing, complete the work over two budget years or use reserves. “If we don’t go ahead with the complete project, it will cause prolonged disruption for that community since portions of the roadway are also scheduled for re-surfacing next year,” said Councillor Leona Thorogood Unanimous approval was given to accept the lowest bid from Urban Dirtworks for $902,632 plus taxes, complete the project and work with the

contractor to achieve cost savings. The original budget was $600,000. The 2014 Storm Improvements include installing a new highway crossing and providing a storm main to the existing school area which collects a large volume of storm runoff from the west side of downtown.

Heating units replacement tender

The system will feature a “single regulator administering a single set of regulations and be operationally independent and self-funded through a single set of fees,” and will be directed by an independent board of directors with “broad capital markets-related expertise.” Canada’s current system of regulation has been described as a ‘patchwork’ method of oversight, and the nation is the only modern industrialzed power that doesn’t have a National regulatory body at present.

Mixed response While Ontario and British Columbia are on board with the project, Quebec and Alberta have approached the announcement with a less-than-positive response. While Quebec Finance Minster Nicolas Marceau reinforced the Supreme Court ruling that “normal securities activities are of provincial jurisdiction,” Alberta has voiced similar reticence to see itself

as part of this new initiative. In a press conference in Calgary, Premier Alison Redford said that the unique status of Alberta’s oil and gas resources, as well as junior companies, meant that much was to be considered before joining. “The Alberta Securities Commission has been very important to our economic development,” she told reporters in Calgary on Thursday, “we need to be able to see that protected.” Finance Minister Horne expressed similar caution toward joining the system. “Alberta remains committed to an agenda of aggressive economic growth and job creation, which includes an effective and efficient regulatory system that meets the needs of all the provinces and investors,” he said, “but let me be clear – I will continue to protect Alberta’s interests and ensure that decisions affecting our province are made in Alberta.”

Clearview agreed that community consultation and engagement important Brenda Schimke

News Journalist Trustees of the Clearview School District discussed how to continue to providing the best possible educational opportunities for all students at their Board meeting on September 18, 2013. It was agreed that community consultation and engagement is increasingly important. “We learned at the public meetings, our schools and public want to know what we are thinking and what are we going to do,” said Trustee Cheri Neitz. Effective styles of communication were also discussed. It was agreed the Board had to do a better job communicating with their stakeholders. Associate Superintendent, Peter Neale spoke about using different forms and levels of communication - including surveys, conversations online, public meetings and focus groups to reach more people. School programming will continue to be an important focus area as budgets tighten and student populations fall. Specific mention was given to the pilot project at the Stettler Elementary/Middle schools, shared programming between schools and levels of programming in small schools. Chairman Ken Checkel suggested teacher excellence should also be the Board’s focus.

“How do we hire, mentor, train, support and develop teachers to ensure that we have as much teacher excellence as we possibly can?” Checkel asked. “If we want the best teachers in front of our students, we’ve got to find a way to implement progressive discipline and progressive assistance in our schools,” said Yvette Cassidy, “If teachers are not up to standard, the Board needs to support our principals to ensure proper documentation is done at all times.” Trustees Peter Simons and Patty Dittrick continued to advocate for a userfriendly budget process and presentation. “People don’t know how School Boards are funded,” said Cassidy, “it’s a complicated process that needs to be broken down so people will understand.” Associate Superintendent Peter Neale will be looking to include more stakeholders in the budget process that starts in January. There will be more opportunities for the public to better understand how school boards are funded, how the money is allocated between schools, what sitebased budgeting means and a follow-up survey on effectiveness of the process. Karen Holloway spoke in favour of including health and wellness of students and staff as one of the Board’s goals. “Many parents do not choose health and wellness for themselves or their children,” said Holloway. “Research says that health

and wellness, put together with teacher excellence, is one thing that actually increases test scores”. It was discussed that promoting health and wellness among school employees helps retain staff and when teachers choose to care for their wellness it influences students positively. “We’re here to educate kids, how much are we supposed to be responsible for,” asked Cassidy, “We’re in the business of educating, and Alberta Health is in the business of health! The more we do for parents, the less they do for themselves.”

News Reporter Toward the beginning minutes of the Paintearth Council meeting on September 17, local resident Rosa Webber was introduced to Council to speak. “County Administrator, County Reeve, Counsellors,” Webber began, “My husband Don and I are deeply concerned about the excessive dust on the county roads. This poses health issues, safety issues and livelihood issues for your citizens.” Webber continued on to say that people with respiratory issues can feel the dirty air upon stepping outside, that passing large vehicles on the road elicits a brown out that reduces visibility and dust-sick animals reduce the ability to sustain a living. “Why should we, Don and Rosa Webber, or any of our neighbours… living along the gravel road be responsible for [the cost of dust control]” she said, noting that she was informed by Assistant Superintendent of Public Works Bryce Cooke that the County did not cover costs of individual residents homes for this measure. County responded by noting that Crescent Point (Cutpick) vehicles were required to run exclusively using Road 123, a road the energy corporation had paid for usage. Thus, noted

Council, the vehicles travelling down Road 384 were not doing so under the rules outlined in the agreement between the corporation and county. County noted that Crescent Point Energy was to be soon placing new speed signs specifically for their vehicles, with larger dimensions and more visible placement. It was ultimately decided that County would continue to work with oil companies to funnel heavy traffic to haul roads. For contractors not following the outlined guidelines, County would ensure the situation was being monitored.

Coronation Town Council Katie Davis

News Reporter Recreation director Barry Brigley presented the Recreation Report at Coronation Council on September 23 with the good news that the pool has been winterized, the golf club made it’s final payment to the Town on the loan to purchase a new top dresser and minor hockey registration is complete with teams in all age groups. He also noted that he has begun seeking donations for a new Zamboni, and with enough cash donations he can then apply for a Community Initiatives Program matching grant.

Public Works Public works director Allan Smith said Lamontagne’s gravel pit loaned Public Works a gravel separator, and with that he was able to grind a good-sized pile of gravel from larger chunks of stone and asphalt from uptown. “We should have a couple of years of stockpile gravel to do our alleys and [other projects],” said Smith, “So that’ll be not such a cost for buying gravel now.” He also noted that the lights on the Crown at the entrance to Coronation were starting to burn out, so discussion ensued as to whether to replace them or eliminate them, with no resolution at this time.

Advanced vote Discussed by Council was the Advanced Vote for the General Municipal Election, which Mayor Dawna Elliot approached by asking if it could be held before the long weekend, as some individuals had already begun asking on the advanced vote time frame. This would move advanced polling to the week of the 7 - 11 of October, as opposed to the 17 - 21, which was brought up as a lengthly timeframe for voting. Advertising was a concern brought up by Deputy Mayor Bonnie Danylyshen, who questioned what local publication it would have to be advertised in. “Does it have to be the ECA Review, or can it be something else?” she asked, citing that the problem with having a weekly paper was that advertising had to be planned in advance of the polling date. “In the city they’ve got dailies and they can [advertise] whenever the [heck] they want. And I think it’s a rip off that we have to put it in the paper, period.” It was established that dates have to be advertised for one week in advance, and motion was carried to hold an Advanced Vote on October 10 and an Institutional Vote on October 21 at the Coronation Hospital and Care Centre.

Councillor Brigley made a motion that the Town of Coronation withdraw membership in CAEP effective immediately, and this motion was carried. It was noted that membership can be renewed anytime.

Economic partnership membership It was discussed at some length whether or not Council wished to discontinue membership with the Central Alberta Economic Partnership Ltd. (CAEP). It was noted that at the September 18 meeting with PEPS - who pay for the CAEP membership - member municipalities discussed CAEP membership, and at that time the board agreed they were not seeing direct benefit of participation. Each municipal Council was then obliged to pass individual resolutions on the matter. It was discussed that as the last CAEP invoice had not been paid at the present time, that Coronation was not obligated to remain for the remainder of the membership term, ending March 31, 2014.


Waste management donation Paintearth Waste Management Unanimous Consent for Donation was brought to the table. Background on the subject noted that at the Paintearth Waste Management meeting on September 18 the annual donation to PEPS was discussed and a motion to make a donation of $100,000 to PEPS was approved by the Board. The Membership Agreement terms note that “such financial assistance must be authorized by a resolution of not less than 80 per cent of members.” “Personally, and for the sake of our community I am not really in favour of the direction of waste management to donating this money to PEPS, for a lot of reasons” Deputy Mayor Danylyshen said, “We have to look after taxpayers money, and not a lot of people know how this works, even I’m not sure sometimes how it works.” She said that of the $100,000 that goes to PEPS, ultimately about $50,000 dollars was being contributed by the Town. She stated that in good conscience she could not agree to this, and this was her motion put forward. CAO Sandra Kulyk then added that as a point of clarification, unanimous consent resolution is a resolution for a donation by Paintearth Waste Management, and that the $100,000 came from royalty credits received from the operation of the waste facility. “To presume that by not approving this resolution, that $25,000 would come to us would probably be to presume incorrectly,” Kulyk said, “this would prevent PEPS from receiving the $100,000; it would oblige PEPS to find some other way of funding their operations, and these funds would just remain in the bank of Paintearth Waste Management.” Turn to Coronation Mayor, Pg 8

Tourism project Canadian Badlands Tourism Visioning Project was given a warm reception from Council. It was discussed that as a regional initiative, it was being promoted well in breaking down areas into rational working groups for projects with neighbouring communities to promote tourism. It was discussed that it was an agreeable partnership, as the Town of Castor was offering to be project lead, and the Badlands were taking on the bulk of the ‘legwork’ in getting they project together. Motion to agree by the terms of the project grant was carried.

Student film series highlights fracking issues Katie Davis

News Reporter After a summer of investigative videography, University of Alberta students Hans Asfeldt and Alison Bortolon are releasing a multi-part series of short films on the subject of fracking in Alberta. Through the AlbertaVoices project, the duo focused on the often-contested, polarizing subject of hydraulic fracturing - the rupture of rock using pressurized liquid often mixed with sand and chemicals. As a primary part of the series, Asfeldt and Bortolon sought out Alberta landowners - including farmers, retirees and operators - to gather perspectives of individuals affected by hydraulic fracturing practices across the Province and how their accounts often differ from the rhetoric of industry and

government. Alison Bortolon says the intent of the films were to help create a dialogue between industry and landowners, and also to give voice to people who may not otherwise have a forum to speak to their experience. “I saw the value in being able to share a human experience,” Bortolon says, “You can’t shut down people’s experiences; people’s stories.” Bortolon says the medium of film seemed the perfect forum to represent a myriad of perspectives. “[Films] are fun to make but they’re also interactive; people enjoy watching them,” she says. As a takeaway from the film series, Bortolon says she hopes people are more aware of the issues going on within Alberta. Alberta Voices website - - will release a new

movie from the series every Tuesday, for the next six weeks. This will

Policy 17 Student transportation was discussed at length at the meeting. It was brought to the table by Ed Brinkman, Chairperson of the Board, who said after much thought on decisions made regarding the policy at last PLRD meeting, he felt the policy needed some looking at. “One of the first [Prairieland Division] sessions I was at, it said ‘the Board should do what the policy says, or they should update the policy,’” Brinkman said, “So I would like to look at this in light of the decisions we’ve made, and see if we don’t need to update our policy.” Ultimately the Board reviewed all policies and administrative procedures with much discourse, and decided to update these policies so that policy and practice are in conformity with one-another.

I have always loved food, so much so that food was in control. I lived to eat – everything in my life centred around food. With hypnosis, I am now in control and food is no longer the focus of my life. I now eat to live. I eat like a thin person – much smaller portions of good, healthy food.

Provost Diabetes Health Fair

Although assistance with weight loss was my primary reason for hypnosis, the secondary benefits have become just as important and significant. During the week following my first session, I noticed numerous times that I would be smiling for no apparent reason. I felt lighter, but not only with respect to weight. I was finding myself stressed far less frequently, and when stress did creep in, I was able to easily relax and become calm. My sleeping has improved and I am less tired each day.

Eat like a thin person! At 64 years old, and 319 pounds, my life was looking bleaker and bleaker. It was a struggle to get out of a chair, out of bed, up the stairs, let alone not being able to get in and out of the bath tub for quite some time. I have been overweight most of my life, but with age the combined effects were life altering. To quote Garth Brooks, “I’m much too young to feel this damn old”.

Viking resident to compete in Special Olympics Katie Davis News Reporter Viking resident Chris Sutter will be competing with Team Alberta in the 2014

Special Olympics Canada Summer Games in Vancouver, where he will represent for Team Camrose in Five Pin Bowling. Sutter says he began bowling with Camrose last year, after moving from

Calgary. “I like bowling ‘cause you are with friends,” says Sutter, “and you can compete with them and your own score.” Sutter began bowling when acquaintances told him how much fun it was, and he equates his competitive spirit to watching family members play sports. “I watched my dad, brother and uncles all play or coach hockey,” he says, “I like to win and so do they.” Sutter has received gold medals in both floor hockey and bowling in Calgary, and also enjoys playing golf and participating in rodeo. He says he is looking forward to the competition in the summer. “I like I like going with the team, it is fun,” says Sutter, “I sometimes get nervous but the coaches help.” The Special Olympics Canada games will take place from July 7 - 13, 2014 in Vancouver.

Coronation Mayor suggested council needed to scrutinize the decision to donate Cont’d from Pg 4 She also said that it was “a gamble” to assume that the funds would be divvied up equally amongst the municipalities involved. It was discussed that, according to the agreement, the Town is entitled to around $24,000 in royalties, which will sit in trust for Coronation. Danylyshen added that council needed to scrutinize the decision to donate. “[Not donating] is not a popular move but how popular is it to be giving money to something that’s not doing anything for our community,” Brigley said, “We had that discussion at the last PEPS meeting about CAEP, [that] CAEP was not doing anything for us, well I guess you have to look at PEPS; what’s PEPS doing for us?” Following was some discussion as to what PEPS was doing for the Town. Councillor Jackie Brigley noted that if Council was not happy with PEPS, “I don’t think not passing this resolution is the proper way to address that issue,” she said. Some discussion as to the nature of the reaction by PEPS if the resolution was not passed was discussed. Ultimately Brigley asked for the vote to be recorded. The final tally for the motion that the Town of Coronation not grant it’s

Old-time haying fundraiser Trucks, ,Trucks s Katie Davis

News Reporter

Every August long weekend an event occurs in Mallaig area that summons back to a time of subsistence living and rustic sensibility, drawing forth methods of farming and daily life that knew no influence from modern technological devices of industry or interaction. Haying in the 30’s combines both history and community fellowship each year, providing a showcase of pastoral farming life while inspiring goodwill by financially assisting cancer victims on a donation-only basis. Cindy Jackson of Castor can attest to the assistance the event provides for cancer patients. “I was diagnosed with breast cancer back in May of this year,” Jackson said, noting that ill-health left her unable to work. Jackson found out about the fund through a relative and decided to apply. She said the process of application was relatively straightforward and easy to navigate. “All you have to do is go into their website and get the application form, and you also need a doctors note along with the application,” Jackson says. Jackson said she received $2000 of donation-based funds this year, which has helped her immensely with treatment and associated costs. “Of course I’m not working right now so every little bit helps,” she said. The Haying in the 30’s Cancer Support Society has been operative since 1999, assisting over 3500 individuals diagnosed with cancer within and outside of the Mallaig area. The event, held annually on the August long weekend, offers food, camping and admission free of charge for people in attendance. All expenses for the two-day event are funded by sponsors and volunteers alone. Lorne Buryn, member of the Haying in the 30’s Executive Committee, acknowledges the costs incurred through the process of treatment can be increasingly high. “We raise funds for people that need money for treatment, for travel, meals, hotel expenses,” he says, “if they have to go travel to Calgary or Edmonton for treatment.” Buryn says the foundations of the event are based on volunteers - over 200 of them - and donations from attendees and vendors alike. “Everything is free,” Buryn says, “We have free food, free camping, free demonstrations... the only thing we ask for people to do is make a donation at the booth, which helps all the other people

who have cancer and need the extra funds.” The idea for Haying in the Thirties was inspired by founder Edgar Corbiere, who’s son had a unique strain of cancer that had to be treated in Vancouver. The community of Mallaig came together to donate money to him so he could weather the costs of travel and related expenses. “Then one day [Edgar Corbiere] was driving along and there was a bunch of guys travelling with horses and buggies and wagons,” says Buryn, “and he said ‘You know what we should do, we should start something where we can raise some funds and help people [who have cancer]’.” So the first year they began with the inaugural event, raising $3500. “This past August long weekend,” says Buryn, “we took in over $215,000 in donations.” Buryn says the hope is to expand in their location and activities as the event moves forward, and that more donations will keep coming in throughout the year and during the weekend itself to help more people in need.

Road improvements in the County of Stettler AUCTION SALE Coronation, Ab • 403-578-2412 403-575-1106 (cell)

Residents and officials gathered Friday, September 20 in the County of Stettler to recognize improvements to an important local road that will bring long-lasting benefits to the community. “Upgrades to routes like Fenn Road make our transportation network more efficient and reliable,” said Earl Dreeshen, Member of Parliament for Red Deer. “The upgrades to Fenn Road mean that producers and industry will benefit from greater and safer access to resources and markets. In fact, since the road connects with two provincial highways, access is improved for all area residents,” said Minister of Alberta Transportation Ric McIver. “Fenn Road is used by farmers, business owners and oilfield workers to extract resources from our land and export them to markets around the province,” said Wayne Nixon, Reeve of the County of Stettler. “Not only is the Fenn Road upgrade good for our economy, but it greatly improves the longevity of the road, making it a transportation route that we can rely on far into the future.” Fenn Road is critical to the local transportation network, providing access to multiple gravel mines in the area. It is also used by oilfield service vehicles and local farmers for the transportation of goods and services, as well as school busses and local commuters. The County of Stettler used $581,376 of

its federal Gas Tax Fund allocation toward the road improvements as well as $2,838,758 in municipal funds. The Government of Alberta contributed $3,460,800 for a total project cost of $6,880,934. The federal Gas Tax Fund transfer provides long-term funding to municipalities across the country to build and revitalize their local infrastructure. This year the government will invest $1.4 billion in Alberta’s highway network.
