Doors Open & Heritage Festival Weekend

Anna Kroupina photo

Albertans have observed Heritage Day since 1974, a celebration on the first Monday in August of the diverse people, culture and history found in towns and communities all over the province. And Crowsnest Pass certainly knowns how to celebrate our heritage with grandeur! The 13th Annual Crowsnest Pass Doors Open & Heritage Festival kicked off on Thursday, August 2 with the Crowsnest Community Market and broke the ice for another four full days of events. The official launch was a performance called “History to Die For” by the Heritage Youth Theatre Company on August 3. The three vignettes, aptly following the theme of “Ghosts, Myths & Legends” of this year’s Doors Open Festival, were directed by Rebecca Dewey and with all 200 seats occupied, was very well-attended. Pictured above are (left to right) two-year-old Morgan and five-year-old Talia and Kaleigh fishin’ at the Crowsnest Museum’s Teddy Bears' Picnic on August 4. For more photos from some of the events during the Doors Open & Heritage Festival, see page 16.

Crowsnest Pass Fire/Rescue responded to and contributed to the successful eradication of a fire in Bushtown just off of York Creek Road on the evening of Wednesday, August 1, 2018. According to FortisAlberta, the fire was caused by a crow that “came in contact with the utility company’s electrical facilities.” "It caused a spark and the crow caught on fire

and dropped to the ground and that caused a small grass fire," says FortisAlberta spokeswoman Jennifer MacGowan. The fire took approximately one hour to be deemed “under control” and totaled approximately 0.2 hectares in size. The fire did not threaten any structures or homes. A resident called the fire into 9-1-1 dispatch at approximately 8 p.m. on Wednesday, August 1. Vance Maclean, Deputy Fire Chief and incident commander of the fire, was the first responder on site. In total, 25 emergency responders were on scene, comprising 18 members from Crowsnest Pass Fire/Rescue, five from Alberta Wildfire and two RCMP officers. Nine fire apparatuses were on scene. The team worked to mop up and soak the hot spots and stop the forward progress of the fire. Maclean and Josh Hoddinott, a Wildfire Ranger with Alberta Agriculture

and Forestry, formed a unified command to combat the fire. "Instead of having two separate organizations working together but in a different command structure, I kind of married both of us so everybody fell under both of us. Once we unified our command, we quickly got it under control," says Maclean. "It was a great job and a combined effort between Crowsnest Pass Fire/Rescue and Forestry." At approximately 10:30 p.m., Maclean relieved all Crowsnest Pass Fire/Rescue crew and turned the scene over completely to Forestry to monitor. Maclean credits the rapid response by Crowsnest Pass Fire/Rescue for such a successful extinguishing of the fire. "The wind was starting to pick up and it was hot and dry, as we all know. So it was totally due to the quick response of the men and women of Crowsnest Pass Fire/Res-

cue that stopped it from progressing into what could have been a larger incident,” he says. According to Maclean, this was the first larger fire incident in Crowsnest Pass this year. “There were a couple of smaller incidents in Hillcrest in June and early July, but they were mostly confined to the railroad tracks and immediate surroundings,” he says. A fire advisory is currently in effect for The Municipality of Crowsnest Pass. This means that all active fire permits are cancelled, and no new fire permits will be issued until further notice. However, campfires and propane fire pits are allowed. With dry conditions persisting in Crowsnest Pass, Maclean advises the public to be cautious about cigarette butt disposal and to call in if any unusual or alarming smoke is spotted. The Report a Wildfire toll free phone number is 310-FIRE (3473).

The Simple Raven’s Post by Avner Perl

Who am I? I began to question “who am I?” at a very early age. We didn’t go to church often, and I never went to Sunday school. My mother, God bless her soul, taught me some very deep basics concepts of the faith and told me that the faith of the other kids was not the one that we belong to. My dad viewed religion as a way for people to discriminate against others. It was not until my late teen years that I discovered that not all Christians were the same. I found out that I belonged to one stream of Christianity, that was the way to heaven, and that the “others” had a big problem. Later, when I embarked on finding out more about the different faiths, I discovered that all of them had the same idea. Even those who were not Christian believe deeply that they are closer to God than the rest. They and we are on a lifelong quest to “save” others by evangelizing each other. During the turmoil in my mind that led me to investigate a number of religions, a new brand of human beliefs was brewing. It affected all the religions. A large portion of the population turned against any belief in God and more yet declared that they are “spiritual” but not “religious.” As I was maturing, the nonreligious grew into a majority mostly replacing religion with science. There was no way to prove to them that there is a God and they could not prove that there isn’t. Churches were turned into museums and restaurants. Pews that were shined by generations of people sitting in them were now empty even while the world’s population doubled. I paid attention to how this new movement affected the general well being of humanity. It seemed obvious that places where religion is strong are lagging behind those who abandoned religions, or place religions on the back burner. It may have nothing to do with religion, but it may be a major contributor. Another possibility entered my mind. Sex is a major item in most religions. They tend to want to regulate human behavior by restricting and regulating human mating issues, mostly by controlling women. Are religions in decline because they give men superiority over women who are rebelling? Is it necessary for women to be controlled in order to have a religion or even be spiritual? I decided to remove myself from that argument. I think that women are men’s equals and do not need direction or instructions about how they should live their lives. I am active in my religion, by volunteering and donating, but I refuse to tell women how they should live their lives. The women I know are open to suggestions, but not to domination.

Broken windows On July 28, RCMP received a report that the windows of a building on Main Street in Blairmore were broken. It appears that rocks were thrown at the windows causing damage. Vehicle B&E On July 30, RCMP received a report that documents were stolen from a vehicle parked on 212 Street in Bellevue. The incident occurred some time overnight Outstanding warrants On July 23, a 32-yearold male from British Columbia turned himself into the detachment on outstanding warrants from the Red Deer and Edmonton areas. He was held for a Justice Remand Hearing and later released on documents for Court.

Found items A Vtech phone was found in a mall parking lot in Blairmore. An expedition tent was found in Coleman. Scams Reminder to residents of computer scams, credit cards scams, Grandparent scams, Revenue Canada scams asking for money or cash cards and saying warrants out for arrest. Do not give out personal information to persons you don't know. Do not open emails if you are suspicious of their origin. Anyone with information regarding any crime is urged to contact the Crowsnest Pass RCMP Detachment at 403-562-2867, or Crimestoppers to remain anonymous at 1-800-422TIPS.

I also removed myself from the argument about the nature of God. I think that humans are better off not trying to conjure what God is. I lived with people of many faiths, and they all were just people. Some were nice, and some were suspicious since they were burned before. A few were openly selfish and only cared about themselves and constantly tried to grab more than their share and stuff it quickly in their overflowing pockets. Surprisingly the worst offenders, in my experience, made an effort to portray themselves as pious and religious for some unknown reason. Now I am one with more experience than average simply due to my age. I am familiar with the major faiths and spirituality, and I know how science works. I CHOOSE to be a Christian since it offers the most hope. A Christian doesn’t try to force, coerce or cheat others to give him/her more. He or she takes what is given, shares it by choice and still has more than enough. I believe that there is what we call God, in everything including the person whom I call “I am.” I don’t have a soul. Sorry, I know it sounds horrendous, but I don’t. I have a body, a truck, a house and tons of junk. I am what some people call in English, a soul. In Hebrew, it’s called “Ruach” which translates roughly into “wind.” Invisible and not detectable by human senses. The Bible says that in the beginning there was “Ruach” hovering over everything. It created a body (Adam) from the dirt, and he named all the created things. Part of him was made into his equal, a female that would stay with him to complete him. Those are things that my mother told me. The pioneers like my wife’s family lived on whatever was seasonal here (in Alberta) all their lives and did well. Millions lived on their farms by their own work and each community was autonomous. The state of the country’s economy didn’t affect them much and the community through the church supplied almost all the services now provided by the government. Priest and nuns were indispensable and also provided religious services that formed the values of the communities and their Christian character. Now with all the advances we made, we could use the same methods to have a heaven on earth. All the other faiths had systems similar to the priest and nuns, but some became very prosperous. Stories about TV evangelists owning jets and mansions emerged and people discovered that the major churches often own lots of wealth. I don’t like it since it takes away from the good that religion and spirituality can and should do. I am a simple (Raven) man who has a body and a brain. The one that people call God has been good to me and I think he will continue to do so forever. It's easy to do it. Just take what you need and leave the rest. Do on to others as you would like others to do to you. Forgive as you would wish to be forgiven. Expect His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Having been in the Pass since last December, “Cat” (Christine) Church, owner of the brand new store called “Restored With A Twist”, located just around the corner from Ben Wong's, was born in Boise, Idaho. She has been in Canada some years and loves it, is married with two children, and previously lived in Edmonton. Her 9-year-old daughter dreams of becoming a vet, while her 16-year-old daughter loves dancing. The Church home has enough love left over for three cats and a couple of dogs - one called Sasha - plus a hamster and three fish. Her younger daughter says that there will soon be the addition of a quartet of canaries, two of which will be in the store. The store sells uniquely restored antiques and also teaches patrons how to assemble some of the requisite skills to restore their own. Having pursued an animal science degree at the University of Idaho, Cat had also wanted to be a veterinarian from an early age, but instead, worked as a vet tech. She also worked as an equine massage practitioner, which had required another two years of schooling. And the main reason she did not become a vet was because she says that she is “too tender-hearted” to have ever been a vet. Still, she is enamoured of every type of wildlife down to the tiniest insect, and consequently, was vegetarian for a time. Cat showed horses on the national level in western contexts for a decade, then switched to dressage. She is also a certified personal trainer and snowboard instructor at Castle, and previously at Snow Valley. In her down time, Cat's hobbies include, besides a real passion for snowboarding, biking and being active in the outdoors in general. She is a committed photographer, having had photos in National Geographic, and she has contributed as a writer to some magazines. Church met her husband, Wes, 18 years ago, in Idaho. He was a trucker and so, one summer they went on the road together. He is currently a custom farmer, and the couple once owned a transport company. Travelwise: Cat has been to Rio, and many times to Manhattan. Having basically traversed all of North America, she has yet to do Europe, although she speaks a smattering of French and Spanish. A priority destination on her wishlist is Japan. Antiquewise... Church believes that Philadelphia is no less than an American mecca for antiques. Church's personal favourite antique is a 1912 grammophone. Of course, her latest dream, given the new shop, would be to decorate everybody's home! Instead, she offers workshops at the shop to help people gain confidence in basic skills such as furniture painting so that they can pursue their own decorating projects. Incidentally, Cat also prefers reading to increase her knowledge in practical skills like woodworking. Friends call Cat, above all, “kind, always there for anyone who needs her.” They also admire her sense of humour, as well as her good taste. Christine Church's number one role model is the Dalai Lama. As for her own wish for people the world over, it’s that everyone could be rich, or at least, that everyone would have all that they need.

Riversdale Survey For the next few weeks, we’re conducting a survey to help us better understand how this community is sourcing information about Claire Rogers Riversdale, what your thoughts are about the project to date and how we can better our community engagement. We will be asking folks to participate in the survey at our Crowsnest Community Market booth over the next few weeks and have asked for assistance from numerous parties in pushing out the link via email as well. At the end of the survey we ask participants if they have any further questions, concerns or comments they’d like answered. Here are a few of these: What is the timeline for construction once approval [mine permit] has been given? Assuming we receive a permit to operate the mine, we anticipate construction will take 23 months. This takes into consideration the rail loadout and all the facilities on the mine site. When do you expect that all the regulatory requirements will be met? A final regulatory decision on whether to grant Riversdale Resources a mine permit will indicate whether the requirements have been met. On 9 July 2018, the Alberta Government passed an Order in Council approving the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) entering into an agreement with the Federal Minister of Environment, Canada for the establishment of a Joint Review Panel (JRP) for the Grassy Mountain Coal Project. The signed Order in Council includes the Joint Review Panel Agreement and Terms of Reference, under which the Grassy Mountain Coal Project will be assessed for approval.  Once established, the JRP will have 14 months to review the EIA report (including supplemental information), conduct a public hearing and prepare a report for the Federal Minister of the Environment. According to the terms of reference, the 14 months does not include time taken by Riversdale to respond to supplemental information requests. Once this review process is complete, a regulatory decision will be announced. Claire will be writing a bi-weekly column talking about what’s ‘on the go’ with Riversdale and answering FAQs. Have a question?

Editorial and Opinions Letters to the Editor

BAcK to thE GrinD Well, we are back from holidays and as much as I love my job, it was hard to open the doors. I spent one whole week hanging out with my boys, camping, visiting and laughing. It’s been a long time since I have laughed and to tell you all the truth, it was wonderful. I had to pop in one day during my holiday to make a cheque deposit to Servus Credit Union in Coleman. It was the Thursday of the long weekend and guess what... I got stuck in the paving line between Blairmore and Coleman, probably like many people trying to navigate between our communities. I have to ask you this fundamental question, “Who the heck decides to pave what I would say one of the busiest roads in Alberta on the Thursday of a long weekend and who the heck was the person in charge of moving the traffic?” I seriously waited over 15 minutes to just get onto the highway from the stop light intersection. Once I got to the bank, I waited over 30 minutes to get back onto the highway. If this is any indication of how busy our route is, we better get that highway rerouting done. I wish the traffic counters or government officials were stuck in the line to see how badly we need a safe, efficient highway throughout the valley. But seriously though... Please, the powers in charge of paving Highway 3 through the Pass, do a little bit of calendar work and figure out a better time. Rant over... So I’m back at work on the Monday of a long weekend, wondering why I always seem to work a holiday and wondering why my one week off in the summer always seems to go so fast. I think I figured it out though - it’s because those of us in the newspaper industry seem to live our lives a week in advance, always planning for the next deadline. I hope you all had the same wonderful break that we did and are gearing towards the fall. My boys are heading back to school and one is heading to university. I am excited and yet sad that my family will never be the same again. My kids are no longer little, so this break was important for so many reasons. Thanks for allowing us to take a break and we look forward to another year of success for ourselves and for this wonderful valley we live in. At least that’s the way I see it. Ls

Highway 3 Options – Sentinel to Pincher Station Frank and Bellevue/Hillcrest Dear Editor; Having attended the Highway 3 open houses in Crowsnest Pass and having submitted my previous comments to the consultants, I have more recently focused on the proposal through the community of Frank and have developed some major concerns with the proposals presented. I am not a resident of Frank but I do recognize it as an integral part of our community and a vital access for everyone. Of the three proposals, my preferred option would be Ultimate Option – F3. However, all three proposals present one major concern. That concern is the complete elimination of the frontage businesses,

homes, a church and the art gallery. These homes, businesses, places of culture and worship likely have an assessed value of $10 million to $20 million. The social disruption to the community of Frank is however much greater losing all commercial amenities, plus the homes of 15 families. Frank is a very small community as is, and the proposal to wipe out the front half block and create a major local collector on 21 Avenue virtually decimates the community. In itself, 21 Avenue is not sufficiently wide to accommodate any more than minor residential traffic. In addition, several very successful businesses that accommodate highway traffic will be

eliminated. Given the high cost of purchasing the frontage properties in addition to the total disruption of the community, it would appear to make economic and practical sense to examine the cost of relocating the railway up to a hundred metres to the south of the existing railbed through the north edge of the Frank Industrial Park. There is presently very minor development adjacent to the existing railway right of way. Relocation of the railway would require the construction of a new railway bridge and some addition rock cuts, but would allow for a much more practical highway route through the community. In total, I would

expect such a relocation to be cost effective given the overall benefits to the community and the free flow of local and highway traffic. This option could potentially reduce the impact on the Frank Slide Restricted Development Area and should better facilitate the construction of a diamond interchange to access the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre and the Industrial Park as proposed in Ultimate Option – F1. Surely there is room to explore a further option to preserve this historic community. The three options presently proposed are all simply unacceptable. Ken Allred

Party time! Halloween in August at Pass Community Pool Don a different kind of suit on August 18... a halloween costume you don’t mind getting wet AnnA KroupinA Pass Herald Reporter

The Pass Community Pool is inviting swimmers to don a different kind of suit on August 18... A Halloween costume! The pool is hosting the first ever Halloween party during open swim on August 18 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. where kids are welcome to dress up and participate in a costume contest. There will also be candy, games and prizes, and the pool will be aptly decorated to create a spooky ambiance. “It’s just to get younger kids into the

everyone. Perhaps most importantly, beyond just being a fun facility for swimmers, the Pass Community Pool promotes a strong mandate of building confidence and skills in swimmers, and with the majority of their staff being certified instructors, the swimming lessons have been a popular option. The pool offers both private lessons for $25 per half-hour and semiprivate lessons for $18 per half-hour per participant. And for those looking to take their swimming technique to

idea of swimming. It gives them something to do instead of coming and being scared. They can come dressed up and have some fun that way and maybe get more comfortable in the pool setting,” says Morgan Cook, assistant manager at the pool. “It’s just fun for the community, mostly.” The pool has hosted several themed swims over the summer, like a shark, Hawaiian and an 80s theme. With a variety of classes, events and swimming opportunities built into the schedule, the pool offers something for

The Pass Community Pool has had a stellar season so far that has already topped last year’s very successful grand reopening. According to Joey O’Brien, Manager of Community Services, total pool sales for the 2016 season were approximately $44,000, while 2017 sales jumped to $64,000. To date, this year’s sales are at $70,000 and there is still almost a month to go until the end of the season. As a municipally-subsidized facility, the increase in usership and revenue means that less

the next level, the Masters class puts swimmers through different drills and focuses on technical swimming. The Aquafit classes, offered in the evening and morning five times per week, are a great activity for those with limited mobility or joint problems. “It’s not necessarily for elderly people, but it is more attended by them," says Cook. “It's a slow-paced class in the water that gets you moving. It takes the pressure off and makes it easier to move if you have arthritis or bad knees."

municipal funds are required to operate the pool. “The most important item I would like to point out is the projected municipal contribution for the pool is forecasted to be about $90,000 this year. A year ago, it was forecasted to be $170,000. The difference is a robust business plan for the facility and great leadership delivering this plan by Jared and his team,” says O’Brien, referring to pool manager Jared Koentges.

Crowsnest Museum’s micro-rebrand focuses on functionality, not flash AnnA KroupinA Pass Herald Reporter

This year’s Crowsnest Pass Doors Open and Heritage Festival may have come to end last weekend, but the Crowsnest Museum & Archives continues to celebrate our cultural history each and every day. With the grand opening of the APP Barracks last summer, 2018 was largely focused on the new building and exhibit, making certain administrative and organizational tasks to fall to the wayside. Now, with the successful APP project behind them, the Board of Directors for the Crowsnest Historical Society are taking a

look inwards with a microrebrand. Their work may not be manifested in the flash and flare of a brandnew exhibit, but the often unseen behind-the-scenes work is equally as valuable. “The APP Barracks were a fantastic large project for us and was such a success, but when you have a large project like that and opening a whole new building and a brandnew exhibit, things get pushed to the wayside,” says executive director of the Crowsnest Historical Society Board Chris Matthews. “We're doing a very targeted rebranding to get a refresh going. The

major work is on governance aspects, policies and procedures that doesn't come out in our displays or events, but it really does help our organization get healthier and stronger.” One of the targets is increasing awareness of their membership options and creating more intimate links with their members. “We want to be member-driven, build relationships with our membership and increase our membership. We want to make it fun. We want to have more events and more interaction with the community and our members. We want people to proudly display that

Getting Married? Insurance Considerations Before & After Your Wedding Summer always seems to be wedding season in the Crowsnest Pass. With all the hustle and bustle of wedding plans, to the excitement of the wedding day, to becoming newlyweds and making a new home together, insurance concerns sometimes can fall through the cracks. Cartwright Newlyweds have much to consider when it comes to proper insur- Megan Insurance Broker ance coverage. Even before you reach married life, there’s wedding insurance to consider, which can protect you from unforeseen outof-pocket costs should your day not go quite as planned, to travel insurance, because no one wants to get stuck with costly medical bills on their honeymoon.

they're a member of the museum and how important it is to them and their community,” says Matthews. Membership subscriptions undoubtedly help historical records become richer and more complete, and are one of the museum’s primary sources of funding, along with government grants. "We want to build up a better sense of community and cooperation with our membership. If we had half the community of Crowsnest Pass and just 100 businesses be members, that would almost cover half of our budget on an annual basis. That's huge for us,” says Matthews. “It really goes a long way to helping our bottom line it makes it so our fundraising doesn’t have to be as often or our grant applications can go a lot further. We can use that money for matching grants.” Members receive free general admission to the Crowsnest Museum, a discount on items in the gift shop, exclusive museum newsletters, invitations to special members nights and a discount for guests. “There’s perks to it but really, it's about supporting

your local community in preserving the history of the place, and it's not just the museum. We're at all the heritage events and all the heritage outreach, so it does go outside of the museum and the APP walls,” says Matthews. While the micro-rebrand involves more behind-the-scenes work, museum-goers can always appreciate the more visible work that is in constant development at the Crowsnest Museum: their constant additions of artifacts and displays of new mementos of our past. In their upcoming displays, for example, there’s the Boer war regiment fiddle coming from the Royal Tyrrell Museum that is tied to the union labour movement of the Crowsnest Pass, an assortment of donated masonic items, an old school desk from a local school and old maps of area mines transferred from the Revelstoke Museum & Archives. During last weekend’s Crowsnest Pass Doors Open and Heritage Festival at the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre, you might have seen a certain special item on display... "We just got the Sam Jones pocket watch, which

was part of the train robbery in the Bellevue ShootOut that helped lead to Auloff’s arrest,” says Matthews, referring to the 1920 train robbery that eventually resulted in three killed officers. “It was in the Medicine Hat [Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre] in their collection because that's where the Jones family retired and passed away.” If you missed seeing this striking piece of Crowsnest Pass history, the pocket watch will be on display at the APP Barracks. “We're working hard here because we think it's important and we feel the privilege of protecting the Crowsnest Pass history and we take that very seriously. We appreciate the support that we get from the community in coming out to events, volunteering, donating, buying a membership... All those avenues of support have to come together in one big piece that keeps this place alive and well,” says Matthews. To purchase a membership or receive additional information, visit www.crowsnestmuseum.c a or stop by the Crowsnest Museum.

Then there are decisions about coverage for property, insuring wedding rings, getting life insurance, and potentially combining car insurance policies. Whether you rent right now or are planning on buying a new home together, you both are likely bringing valuable assets into the marriage that will need to have proper coverage and you will also need to properly protect the space you are living in. Your local A-WIN Insurance broker, Megan Cartwright, can help you develop strategies for updating your personal inventory, as well as point out additional ways to save such as combining your policies with the same insurance company to see if you are eligible for multi-policy discounts. Megan will carefully consider the amount of coverage you need to have on your policy and make sure that you are neither over or under insured. The conversation with her may not be as tasty as picking out your cake flavour (although she is very entertaining company) but the knowledge and potential savings you gain will far outlive the butter-cream frosting. Your local A-WIN Insurance brokers, Megan Cartwright is happy to serve the insurance needs of the Crowsnest Pass. Please stop by the office at 12931 20th Ave. in Blairmore, call us at 403-526-2191 or email megan.c@awinins.ca.

As part of their micro-rebrand, the Crowsnest Museum unveiled a brand new logo at a Chamber After Hours on May 24. Pictured are executive director Chris Matthews (left) displaying a placard with the new logos for the donor program and Pat Rypien, president of the Crowsnest Historical Society, holding the new logo for the Crowsnest Museum & Archives. “The old logo was great, but it represented more the national historic site of Coleman, less the Crowsnest Museum,” says Matthews. “The approach was really to highlight the Crowsnest Museum and we felt that the building itself was the best representation of that.”

Letters to the Editor A crash course in Highway 3 planning Dear Editor; Highway engineers appear to have become so preoccupied with their vision to create a high-speed, twinned superhighway that spans Alberta that they’ve embraced a solution that serves the landscape to the east, applied it to the entire equation and, in the process, ignored a mountain. The Crowsnest River valley’s tight, rock-walled serpentine course, paired with the adjacent expanses of tortured topography, would make a high-speed proposal on this headwaters landscape problematic even if the river, a community, an existing highway, and a railway weren’t already part of the complex logistical equation. Today, incredibly, and absurdly, the highway-

planning process on this landscape, like a runaway boulder, is crushing everything in its path. How did it acquire this false momentum? The process gives the appearance of being more important than the planned product, more influential and substantial than the health of the populace. The planning procedure needs to readdressed, and the people of Alberta need to be directly—not superficially—involved. Hundreds of millions of dollars—as well as health and safety issues—are hanging in the wind. Anyone looking at the big-picture today—well, perhaps anyone other than a project-lusting engineer—can see there are physical constraints that

overwhelm the available space and scream for a solution that favors human health and wellbeing, a slower pace, and safety. Not needed is a twinned, trans-community speedway that degrades and consumes the community of Crowsnest Pass and ends at its western edge, the AB/BC border. The winning solution needs to embrace—not overwhelm and destroy— Crowsnest Pass’s relaxed lifestyle, its wealth of wildlife, its scenic splendor, and its abundance of rich and alluring cultural resources and historic sites. Why do unleashed highway planners attempt to pour concrete over all measures of social value other than a warp-speed vision for fast-paced travel and its complex, engineered spaghetti-way of connecting roads? Why would a thinking society allow this to happen in the headwaters of the Crowsnest River valley, where it doesn’t make sense? And there’s this: How could—or why did?— Crowsnest Pass’s elected council roll over, play dead, and endorse the proposed plan to construct a screaming, Deerfoot Traillike expressway through the heart and soul of an iconically picturesque community nestled within a stunningly beautiful valley sandwiched between gorgeous mountain ranges? How could this same council lend its voice to a plan to destroy the existing Frank Slide viewscape in an apparent attempt to smash the site’s 1977 designation as a Provincial Historic Resource and, with this designation, the formal protection, for posterity, of its cultural and geological features? Wow! Could this happen anywhere else in Canada? The Frank Slide, North America’s most deadly rockslide, is this community’s most visible and widely known historical site. It’s a haunting cemetery, a sea of fractured tombstones. Do the people of Alberta wish to destroy the historical and cultural value of this worldrenowned asset in order to, perhaps, drive a little faster? Why would anyone opt to do this in order to create, at colossal expense, a slightly quicker exit route for truckers and other motorists wishing to leave Alberta? As society works to create a better tomorrow, it’s imperative to plan for a future that serves, em-

braces, and gives strength to a network of vibrant communities and the people who live within them. By supporting quality-oflife issues and putting sanity and safety ahead of speed, Albertans can sustain a paradise that already exists by simply ensuring that Crowsnest Pass’s foundation for future worth is not needlessly sacrificed. There is no value in spending hundreds of millions of dollars to transform one of Canada’s most scenery-rich communities and a revered, world-class, Crown of the Continent landscape into a highspeed exit ramp into British Columbia. This is not the way to impress— and attract—world travelers. The Crowsnest valley, long known as Disaster Alley, remains exposed to threats of colossal proportion. At the fore is a rockslide predicted to cascade into the Crowsnest River valley from the fractured, destabilized face of Turtle Mountain. Wildfires constitute a second looming threat. Flooding, too, is a perennial concern. Since society’s well aware of the preceding, is it not foolish to permit continued development within floodplains and highly flammable fuel-rich forests? Is it not more foolish to request development within the mapped and well-known path of a projected rockslide, a landscape scientists have told planners and community leaders to avoid due to the risk to human life?  Any heavy construction occurring in close proximity to the projected rockslide might be seen to be particularly dangerous and ill-advised due to its potential to trigger the feared event. Blasting associated with road building or nearby mining activity can be expected to elevate the danger of the forecast rock avalanche, increasing its likelihood. Underground miners in days-of-old said this: “You’re only as safe as the stupidest man in the mine.” The saying, today, might be dragged from the dark and dangerous depths of yesterday’s mines, exposed to the light of day, and used as a foundation for selecting members of a sound, futuristic planning team. Whatever happens on the greater Crowsnest Pass landscape, society, led by insurance companies and followed by lawyers, is sure to be watching.

Vignette of the pass from the past Joseph L. Lothian I recently returned from an annual obligation to visit and clean family graves in the Coleman Union Cemetery. I was accompanied by my son Rob and his wife Lorna. Of particular concern were the graves of my mother’s youngest brother, my uncle Arthur Lardinois and of my father, George Lothian. They are buried side by side within a fenced metal enclosure and the graves are subjected to an infusion of leaves and other debris carried by the constant Crowsnest wind. I have other family members laid to rest in that hallowed ground but the graves are not fenced and that same wind effectively keeps them scoured clear of debris. For many years my maternal grandmother, Augustine Lardinois, visited her son and son-in-laws gravesite to clean and place flowers. We have inherited that obligation. My grandparents Joe and Augustine Lardinois had a ranch adjacent to the cemetery and the three houses and various outbuildings were within visual sight. My parents, my Ancelet cousins and my grandparents occupied the three houses. It was a communal arrangement and they maintained the large gardens, raised mild cows and the men worked in the local mines to meet the monetary needs. I was born on September 1, 1928 and on September 3 as my mother lay in a home birthing bed, the men of the family were busy gathering hay from what was known as the Big Field to provide winter fodder for the milk cows. When the gatherers had loaded the hay racks, my Uncle Arthur at 16 years of age elected to deliver the load to the storage barns. The road from the field was on a fairly steep downward track and for some unknown reason the young team, Dolly and Prince, were spooked, bolted and began to run away. Uncle Arthur, attempting to control the team lost his balance and fell behind the horse’s heels and in front of the wagon wheels and was fatally injured. My paternal grandparents, George and Grace Lothian together with my father’s sister from Lethbridge were visiting at this time to bear witness to the birth of their newest grandson and nephew, joining his older brother George. Joe Lardinois, grieving at the untimely death of his son was prepared to shoot both horses

but my grandfather George interceded and Dolly and Prince were spared to live a long and productive life as a working team. Ranch life in the 1920s was often unforgiving. A short three months later my father George and his mining partner, John Lapdik, were killed by exposure to gas in the International mine. Since I was an infant at the time, I have no knowledge of his accident, but I do have a wealth of family discussions of the tragedy. My father and his partner were engaged in mining coal, and as were the regulations, were checked daily by the fireboss to ensure the work was being conducted safely. Adjacent to the partner’s workplace was a very gassy area and the fireboss would venture into this area to check on the level of gas accumulation. According to my Uncle Jules Ancelet, my father had indicated to him that on a number of occasions when the fireboss was late returning from his inspection, the partners would leave their workplace to ensure safety. In reviewing the accident it appeared that during this shift the fireboss did not return as expected and the partners left their workplace to check on him. To the inquest reviewing the accident it appears that the partners arriving at the gassy place became aware of the fireboss’s lamp shining high up in the room but was unmoving. Both partners exerted themselves rushing up to come to the fireboss’ aid. While the fireboss had moved leisurely through the gas pocket, the partner’s exertion had caused them to be overcome by the gas. Mr. Lapdik had collapsed within the gas pocket. His peril was further heightened in that his lungs had been compromised, owing to being gassed in First World War. Both miners, having been removed from the pas pocket, were pronounced deceased. The fireboss survived after extensive treatment with a Pulmotor, a mechanical device for artificial respiration. Mr. Lapdik left behind a widow and two children. My father left my mother widowed with my older brother George at four years of age and myself an infant. The mines are even more unforgiving. My father was buried next to my Uncle Arthur and a fenced enclosure was erected to house the

graves. My mother had a red granite tombstone over my father’s grave and his wedding picture inserted in the stone. Growing up, I visited the two gravesites often together with both sets of grandparents and other family members. Many years later some miscreant youth probably returning from an unsuccessful rabbit hunt used my father’s picture for target practice. His first shot hit granite but the second shot penetrated the picture. For years, the bullet-holed picture remained intact, but weather finally made its way through the shattered glass and the wind carried both picture and confining frame to the elements. I always felt an obligation to correct that injustice and often wondered if that youth had grown to an adult and still lived in the Pass, or wherever, does not look back on that senseless act with regret. On attending another family funeral in the cemetery I broached the subject of repair with the local undertaker but he offered little encouragement. The problem remained in my conscience and I committed to finding a manner of repair. I did have my father’s wedding picture, which I did not wish to separate. My father had served with the Seaforth Highlanders during the First World War, enlisting at a youthful 16 and spending four years on the Western Front. I did have a picture of my father in the kilt and kit of a Seaforth Highlander. I was able to find a picture size that would fit in the gaping wound of the granite. They would transfer the reduced image to a wooden base, laminate the picture, and seal it with UV ink in a manner that would protect against the elements. With the finished product in hand we ventured to the graveyard to correct that desecration of many years. Unfortunately I had not measured the gaping wound in the granite accurately and it took much filing and scraping to fit the new picture into the granite wound. But it’s done. God willing and with copious applications of Gorilla Glue it will withstand the elements. My remaining hope is that some aspiring nimrod does not come along to practice his marksmanship. It is regretful that if he does, the Highlander will not be able to return fire!

IRENE MAY STRANDQUIST

Obituary

(Née: Poxton) May 29, 1951 ~ July 25, 2018

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Irene Strandquist on July 25, 2018 at the Crowsnest Pass Continuing Care Centre, Blairmore, AB. She was 67 years of age. Born and raised in the Crowsnest Pass, Irene appreciated the beauty of the area and she took every opportunity to spend time outdoors, whether it be walking, tending her garden, or going camping. She also enjoyed baking, knitting, and going shopping, as well as listening to Elvis music and watching “The Young and the Restless”. Irene was a social butterfly who loved any activity that involved being with people – especially if those people were her family. She treasured time spent with them, and was very proud of each of them. Hearing her say, “I’ll love you nine and two” always made them smile and feel special. Irene gave so much to so many and asked for so little. She will be deeply missed. Left to mourn her passing and celebrate her life are her children, Charlie (Tammy) Strandquist of Coleman, AB, Teresa (Bryan Butala) Strandquist of Lethbridge, AB, Wayne (Rolande) Strandquist of Sparwood, BC, Stephan (Linda) Strandquist of Dawson Creek, BC, Patsy (Jim) Malin of Bellevue, AB, Carol (Fred Horbay) Strandquist of Frank, AB and John Ceh of Hillcrest, AB; her grandchildren, Kyle, John, Matthew, Diane, Paige, Victoria, Clinton, Brad, William, Alex, Ashleigh, Dwayne, Crystal, Eric, Morgan, Robin, Katie, Jason, Kurt, Corey, Grayson and Shamus; her great grandchildren, Aubree, Kayden, Ryan, Nevada, Dameon, Arieanna, Skyler, Serenity, Dakota, Kody, Rylan, Kohl, Kara and Megan; her brothers, Albert (Marion) Poxton of Bellevue, AB and Walter Poxton of Coleman, AB; her sisters, Jean (Tim O’Donnell) Waldner of Hillcrest, AB and Gloria Brown of Edmonton, AB; her special friend, Joe Golab of Coleman, AB; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. She was predeceased by her husband, Arvid Strandquist; her father, Walter Poxton; her mother Jean Gorup; her grandson, Brandon Strandquist; her brother, Roy Poxton; and her sister, Eleanor Petrollini. A Memorial Service was held at Fantin’s Funeral Chapel (13461, 20 Ave., Blairmore, AB) on Saturday, August 4, 2018 at 11:00 am. Memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the Crowsnest Pass Boys and Girls Club (PO Box 1176, Coleman, AB T0K 0M0). Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca. Fantin’s Funeral Chapel entrusted with the arrangements. (403) 562-8555

BARBARA ANNA WHITTLE

Obituary

(Née: Clarke) October 22, 1947 ~ July 18, 2018

Barbara Anna Whittle, beloved mother, grandmother, sister, friend, and nurse, passed away at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre on July 18th, 2018. Barb was born in Renfrew, Ontario on October 22, 1947 to Delia Chevalier Clarke and Joseph Clarke. She is survived by her loving children, Clark and Cheri Whittle and grandchildren, Winter, Sarah, Benjamin and Hailey. She was predeceased by the love of her life, Terry Whittle and her daughter, Rochelle Adel. Barbara added joy to every life she touched both in and out of the healthcare field. She will be forever remembered for the twinkle in her eye and her infectious laugh, her ability to instantly dissolve tension and her delicious apple pie. She will be greatly missed by everyone she blessed with her memory and will live in our hearts forever. As energy flows off the falls And lifts in northern lights I let a little go And so You gain a little flight I have so much gratitude for u And how you helped me grow But there’s still a little girl in me It’s hard to let u go I’m grateful but I’m numb I’m sad and somehow relieved

And not because you’re gone But that you can finally breathe That you’re somehow at peace With dad and finally free You fought so hard for me And one day I hope to see That bit of you in me White butterflies dance Your song of peace And help me try to just release To ground surround with love and peace I love you mom

A Celebration of Life will take place at 1:00pm on Thursday, August 9, 2018 at Fantin’s Funeral Chapel (13461, 20 Ave., Blairmore, AB) with Rev. Renso Castellarin presiding. A Gathering of Family and Friends will immediately follow from 2:00pm until 4:00pm. Memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by Diabetes Canada (#220 – 6223, 2 St. SE, Calgary, AB T2H 1J5, or www.diabetes.ca). Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca). Fantin’s Funeral Chapel entrusted with the arrangements. (403) 562-8555

Horoscopes

LEO – Jul 23/Aug 23 Stay focused on the journey and you will certainly get to the destination in record time, Leo. You have a passionate desire to see things finished through the end.

SAGITTARIUS – Nov 23/Dec 21 It is time to decompress between adventures, Sagittarius. Try sticking closer to home this week and take a breather. There will be plenty of exploration down the road.

TAURUS – Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, asking for assistance is not a sign of weakness. In fact, it is a true test of strength because it means getting help before situations turn worse. Accept help graciously.

VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, this week presents a perfect opportunity to focus on a project you have been meaning to revisit. It’s good to relax, but free time this week may be better spent working.

CAPRICORN – Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, accept constructive criticism, which is a part of many successful endeavors. Take away important lessons and apply them now and in the future.

GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 Express your creativity every chance you get, Gemini. Sooner or later one of your ideas will appeal to another person, and this could just be the catalyst you need.

LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, you’re inclined to focus on others, but it may be time to carve out some time to care for yourself. If you burn out, everyone will pay the price.

AQUARIUS – Jan 21/Feb 18 Sometimes the best way to improve your bank account isn’t by racking up long hours, but by moving into a career you love, Aquarius. Now is a great time to explore your options.

CANCER – Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, sometimes the first step to starting something big is just believing you can do it. Then all you have to do is put all of the other factors in play.

SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 It’s hard to run away from love and romance this week, Scorpio. Prioritize an existing relationship or devote more time to a budding one.

PISCES – Feb 19/Mar 20 You often put other people’s needs before your own, Pisces. Others appreciate this and may attempt to express their gratitude in the coming days.

ARIES – Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, something has been on your mind for awhile, so write down your thoughts and try to act on them. This will take the mystery out of the situation.
