Liberal leadership candidate Justin Trudeau stops in Vegreville during his tour of Alberta

MICHELLE PINON PHOTOS

Liberal leadership candidate Justin Trudeau spent 45 minutes with supporters at the Vegreville Train Station late Saturday afternoon. He delivered a few remarks before addressing the media and posing for pictures and chatting with folks in attendance before departing for Bonnyville. Pictured on the right is Vegreville-Wainwright Constituency Association President Edward Wieclaw. Edward Wieclaw remembers the original “Trudeau mania.” He was a student at the University of Manitoba. The year was 1968. Fast forward to 2013. Wieclaw, President of the Vegreville-Wainwright Liberal Constituency Association, is among the crowd of about 75 people waiting inside the local train station to greet Liberal leadership candidate Justin Trudeau. The eldest son of the late former Prime Minister steps into the foyer of the station at 3:45 p.m. His broad smile speaks volume as he shakes hands before making his way towards the podium.

show their support, while others raise their cameras and phones, and put their hands to welcome Trudeau who is on the first of a three day whirlwind tour of Alberta. He has just come off an appearance in Edmonton, where he was greeted by around 400 people. Trudeau says it’s nice to be back in Vegreville, where he stopped in several years ago before heading to Camp Wainwright for an appearance. Unconventional? Maybe a little, but so is the idea of opening up the process of selecting the right leader to all Canadians, adds Trudeau. He says visiting small

towns and cities during the campaign is what it’s all about, and reconnecting with people, and

politicians are about service. Building interest as well as a better, more prosperous country, is

encouraging them to get actively involved in politics. Trudeau says a lot of people don’t believe

what he wants for all Canadians. As a father himself, Trudeau says parents are worried, “and for good

reason,” that they won’t be able to provide a better future and quality of life than what they’ve enjoyed. Canadians from coast to coast share strong values, and he’s hoping to tap into evidence based solutions that will serve the country as a whole. “We can’t allow portions of society to be stuck in survival mode.” Trudeau says everyone has a deep need to feel they matter to the people around them, and they need to be supported. “They need to be valued.” He feels there needs to be more emphasis placed on education, retraining, and employment programs in order for citizens to feel like they are making a differ-

ence, contributing to their community, and the world in general. “That’s what we need to restore our extraordinary rich country.” Trudeau said Canadians elect people to serve them. Many do not feel that is the case, but he is hoping to restore their faith and confidence in the system, as national leader of the Liberal Party. “You need someone telling of your strengths, values and challenges.” He’s hoping to be that voice, and time will be the telling tale when votes are cast this spring.

Family Literacy Day abounds with activities for all ages at the Lamont Public Library Jazmine Inkster Student Reporter Children and parents had no lack of activities at this weekends family literacy day event held at the Lamont Public Library.

The event was put on by the Community Adult Learning Council, and the Lamont County Library Board in an effort to help promote all types of literacy and learning to those in our community.

Perhaps one of the most exciting parts of the afternoon was a performance by Ernestine Hatpin and her partner Angus, also know as Sheila and Tim Gibbs. The energetic duo provided entertainment to

Jazmine Inkster Photo

Children were able to exercise with Ernestine and Angus through many of their sing and dance routines during the 45 minute show, keeping the children and adults alike entertained

both the children and the adults through singing, dancing, and telling stories about eating healthy, farms, and the wonder of libraries. The Gibbs’ have been performing as Ernestine and Angus for two years, doing a library tour last summer. It was at that tour that Denise Dorland (Chairperson of the Lamont County Library board) had seen their show first hand and decided that she wanted them to play at the Family Literacy Day event. The Gibbs’ describe their work as being a lot of fun, and i something they really enjoy doing. “Even playing for small groups is great, They get right into it!” explains Sheila. In total, there were 16 children who had come to the event, and with plenty of activities to

help keep their minds active, the goal of helping children and parents understand literacy was easily met. The children were able to listen to stories, play games, do crafts and put together floor puzzles

Among the activities available to the attendee’s were games, colouring activities, and puzzles which were highly enjoyed by Hannah and Jennifer Melnick and their mother Jillian (above).

Collision near Lamont high school Jazmine Inkster Student Reporter

Fort Saskatchewan RCMP were called out to a vehicle accident at approximately 10:25 a.m. January 24. The accident occurred on 49 St. and 50 Ave. in Lamont. There were two vehicles involved in the collision, and no reported injuries. According to RCMP, the first vehicle was stopped at the southbound stop sign, when the vehicle proceeded through the stop signit collided with a westbound vehicle traveling on 50 Ave. The driver of the vehicle then lost control and stopped on the side of 49 St. Although there was blowing snow, neither visibility or icy conditions were believed to be a factor in the collision. RCMP say the female driver was charged with leaving the stop sign when it was unsafe to do so.

Hats Off! This week it was Robyn Butler’s turn to be a lifesaver. Every couple of years or so I forget my notebook and/or camera at an event. Such was the case Saturday evening at the Lamont Fish & Game Wild Game Dinner & Trophy Night. Maybe I overindulged in too much in the smoked bear ham, elk pepperoni, or moose meatballs? Even so, it’s no excuse for losing my..er, mind. This was the second time I have attended the event, and I am so impressed with the appetizers, supper, raffles, silent and live auctions, and even the funny cartoon placemats. I can’t imagine the time and effort that’s involved with organizing the event from start to finish. Seriously, I would like to thank Robyn, and fellow members of the association who are always so friendly and accommodating, and willing to serve others and their community.

Idle no more urges Liberal MLA These origins in themselves are remarkable since some of the First Nation chiefs endorsed the Omnibus Bill and thse courageous citizens are challenging their own leadership at the same time as the federal government. The uprising may appear unfocused but in my view it focuses on three issues which all conscientious Canadians should support: 1) The rejection of the Omnibus process (Omnibus bills hide unpopular changes in order to pass them along with important changes such as the federal budget, in this case); 2) The rejection of a

weakening of environmental oversight, particularly related to fresh water (navigable rivers); 3) The lack of consultation and accommodation in changes to the Indian Act which could benefit some on reserves but further disadvantage the most disadvantaged. The prompt action and growing movement has captured the imagination of many citizens in and outside of Canada and from many cultural backgrounds. It is uniting many citizens who previously lost faith in the willingness or ability of elected officials at all levels to act in the long term public interest. Undoubtedly, some prac-

tical and efficient changes are made in parts of Bill C-45 and C38 but, even environmental law experts are unclear as to how Bill 38 amendments square with the new amendments in C-45. This also raises serious questions about what environmental monitoring will be offloaded to the provincial governments, Alberta included. The Idle-No-More movement presents an important opportunity for us all to engage in our democratic rights and responsibilities, and press for the changes in our public processes and institutions to get reform. One key area

Kerry Anderson Publisher

needing reform is public access to information and strict accountability for politicians that serve themselves or do not serve the interest of all people and future generations. This movement is also an opportunity to recover a sense of solidarity with First Nations, and stop the ‘blame game’ that serves neither the First Nations or other Canadians. The truth is that we are all responsible for the conditions of our society, including First Nations, and we all pay dearly when any group or individual is marginalized and wounded. Together, we must find a new way for-

ward and expand the healing circles of our lives. Each one of us has the ability to listen, to reflect and walk with others in their journey to healing. The divisions and wounds across our society will never be solved by governmentr policies, or programs or more money alone. As the truth and Reconciliation Commission is finding, a new approach is needed to engage each other as brothers and sisters seeking community. Far from dismissing or disrespecting Idle-NoMore, all Canadians should take the opportunity to meet First Nations, learn about

their lives and contributions, learn from them and be part of healing the most important social, economic and environmental challenges of our time. A majority of Canadians see that our democracy is not functioning well, and sadly, many of us have given up. First Nations are reminding us that we have a country and people (including our children) that are too valuable to give up on. It is time for each of us to resolve to be idle no more.

Lamont students place third Jazmine Inkster Student Reporter

Lamont high school students were able to claim two titles over the PetroChallenge event held on December 18 and 19. The seven students from Lamont High School were the first from Elk Island Public Schools to ever attend the event, as well as one of the teams of three students were able to come home in third place out of the 37 teams who had participated. In total there were seven students who had attended from Lamont High School’s Oil Patch 101 class, with students Jarred Marshal, Josh Taylor, and Tristan Bartz placing third in the competition. “The amount of student engagement was awesome. This was a valuable opportunity for students to collaborate

with others and network with stakeholders in the industry,” explains Oil Patch 101 teacher, Lindsay O’Neill. “The skills emphasized by the PetroChallenge allow the students to see how the concepts they have learned in their Oil Patch 101 Course are applied in the real world using a unique computer simulation,” During the simulation, students were able to discover petroleum reserves, as well as market their company and establish deals with other teams. The winners from this event will go on to represent Canada at the I n t e r n a t i o n a l PetroChallenge held in London England on January 26, 2013. O’Neill plans to have her students return to next years PetroChallenge, with the return of the oil patch course in September to help the

students prepare for the event. She hopes to have even more students able to represent Lamont High school in the PetroChallenge 2013. “I have students asking if they can take the course again so they can attend the Challenge next December. It is a really valuable opportunity and students can utilize the background information they learn in the [in school] course to be successful in the challenge.” The program covers many different aspects of the oil and gas industry in our province, including oil recovery, drilling, transportation, and community support projects. Students were also able to speak to and learn from workers at Shell Scotford regarding the aspects of different jobs in the industry.

Shell Scotford donates $65,000 for warning light system at Bruderheim Regional Fire Hall Submitted by the Town of Bruderheim Shell Scotford’s recent $65,000 donation to the Town of Bruderheim has funded much need warning lights for the town’s new regional Fire Hall. “When the fire department is responding to a call, the fire trucks exit onto Queen Street, the main street of our downtown area,� says fire chief Bob Cote. “It’s a high traffic area and the flashing lights will alert drivers and pedestrians that emergency vehicles are on their way out.� Mayor Karl Hauch adds, “The safety of our residents is top priority. The risk of fire trucks being delayed or encountering on-coming traffic or pedestrains is now mitigated thanks to our partnership with Shell Scotford.� The support for Shell’s investment came through the company’s Community Safety Program, established in 2011 to commemorate the start up of the

Athabasca Oil Sands Project (AOSP) expansion. The AOSP is a joint venture among Shell (60

per cent), Chevron Canada (20 per cent) and Marathon Oil Corp (20 per cent), and

includes the mining/extraction facilities near Fort McMurray (called Shell Albian

Sands), and the Scotford Upgrader near Fort Saskatchewan. Shell is the operator of both facil-

ities. “The Community Safety Program provides support for community initiatives that help improve safety and prevent injuries,� says Tanya Ristoff, upstream communications advisor for Shell Scotford. “The Bruderheim Fire Hall warning lights will make emergency vehicles highly visible when exiting the fire hall, which is important for the safety of passing pedestrians and motorists in the community. Road safety is a global safety focus for Shell, so this investment was a natural fit with our business.� Hauch says, “The Town of Bruderheim is grateful to have responsible and supportive corporate neighbours like Shell Scotford. Generous donations like their contribute so much to our community.� Drivers and pedestrians in the Fire Hall area are reminded to use caution. When lights are flashing, please stop and proceed only when the trucks have left the hall.

see FNA act as a key sourcing agent for CWB contracts. According to a CWB news release, “FNA staff will communicate CWB pool information to farmers and sign up their contracts. Farmers will then be able to deliver their grain to any elevator or producer car loading site, as CWB has agreements with all prairie grain handlers.� Ian White, president and chief executive officer with the CWB, said: “CWB programs are similar to FNA’s other services in that they help put more money in farmer’s pockets. We are extremely happy to have the opportunity work with FNA to help serve their thousands of members across Western Canada and other farmers by strengthening their bottom lines.�

As for other benefits, White stated that: “With CWB pools, farmers receive all the profits earned from selling their grain through the pooling period, less a fixed management fee. CWB also has a world class sales team with access to a global customer network developed over decades.� Bill Martin, FNA grain marketing spokesman, said the agreement marks a key advance for farmers in ensuring a competitive environment in the grain marketing sector. “We believe in competition, and we are working to ensure that CWB, with 75 years of focusing on farmers, remains a competitive player and valuable option for farmers.�

Wild Game Dinner & Trophy Night

Abby Kotyk, (blue hoodie), was admiring the displays, while other youngsters eyed up the silent auction items and trophies during the Lamont Fish & Game Association’s Wild Game Dinner & Trophy Night Jan. 26th. Around 350 people attended the annual gala evening and fundraiser in support of the local organization.

Pioneer Wisdom Wilson Zukiwski, a resident of Andrew, gave a PowerPoint presentation Jan. 14th of his many photographs of first and second generation Ukrainian structures within Lamont County, Shandro, Willingdon, and area around Smoky Lake. Some of the structures no longer are standing as new owners of the land have tore them down, while others remain standing, and help illustrate the ingenuity and resiliance of the early settlers.
