JASPER WEED DEBATE EXAMINES MEANING OF ‘PUBLIC PLACE’

CRAIG GILBERT PUBLISHER@FITZHUGH.CA What is a public place?

Jasper town councillors spent most of Tuesday morning discussing cannabis consumption rules. After hours of backand-forth Sept. 11, they agreed to break out the definition of a public place from the rest of the bylaw they’re trying to draft ahead of the Oct. 17 legalization of recreational marijuana. The plan now is to vote until they’ve settled on what definition will be inserted into the bylaw, then to vote on the bylaw itself in two separate debates at their Sept. 18 meeting. Mayor Richard Ireland said the province “ducked accountability” when it left setting consumption regulations to local government. He doesn’t want to do the same thing to Jasperites, and argued leaving cannabis consumption rules wide open would have the same effect. “I think it was wrong to treat us that way,” he said. “I think it would be wrong for us to treat our residents that way.” Councillors Scott Wilson, Paul Butler and Helen Kelleher-Empey said they favour a total ban on consumption in public spaces in the townsite. This is described by the third and most restrictive of three options most recently presented to councillors.

Where will Jasper’s impending cannabis bylaw allow pot smoking? Will bylaw officers have the time and resources to enforce it? Should the town be setting rules that apply to private leaseholds and residential areas? Will you be able to walk down the sidewalk in Cabin Creek and toke away? How about the downtown core? These and other questions remain up in the air as town councillors work through what restrictions to set within the townsite. | C. Gilbert photo

Wilson said he brings his young family on the town trail every week and said he doesn’t want cannabis users to have more liberties than drinkers. Kelleher-Empey said she favours a complete ban with the caveat that bylaw officers be directed to “hold back” on enforcement unless the weed smoking is “really intrusive.” Coun. Rico Damota, however, takes issue with telling officers to use discretion as they’re handed a new bylaw to enforce.

“A law is a law,” he said. “What type of message are you sending to the people enforcing it?” Coun. Jenna McGrath remains concerned about how smoking rules will apply to multi-residential buildings and complexes. This is one of the areas where the definition of a public place will come into play. “I don’t agree with coming up with a bylaw just for the sake of it that’s so restrictive and so one-sided.”

She also remains in favour of a total smoking ban in the downtown core. “That’s why I’m drawn to what Camrose did,” expanding the no-smoking buffer around doors and windows to 10 metres. In Jasper, that would effectively outlaw smoking cigarettes in the core. She said there are thousands of carcinogens in the smoke wafting into her Connaught Drive business. “It would be good for the health of all of our residents, visitors and children.”

CRAIG GILBERT PUBLISHER@FITZHUGH.CA At long last, Cinnamon Bear has arrived. The children’s book Cinnamon Bear Comes to Town, penned by Liz Olsen and illustrated by artist Rico, both of Jasper, is now for sale. Proceeds support Jasper’s Child and Youth Participation Fund, which outreach workers use to “remove small, but significant barriers that prevent local children and youth from participating in extracurricular activities.” The book is inspired by a real cinnamon bear that came through the Jasper townsite last September “when the berries and apples were ripe on the trees,” according to Olsen. “In the book, the reader follows the Cinnamon Bear as he passes by six different Jasper locales, each unmistakably depicted by Rico’s art.” A map to each location, along with simple and fun activities that parents can easily engage in with their children as they visit, is included. This is to say Jasper’s mysterious faerie tree, and even the witch tree, have been immortalized by Rico’s one-line drawing method. Child and Family Services director Kathleen Waxer whispers “all witches fly at night” and the interview proceeds without incident. “It’s thrilling every time I look at it,” Olsen said Tuesday. “The artwork is so beautiful and engaging. The cover draws

you in. It’s fun to see Rico’s art paired with a little story I made.” Olsen wrote the story “for fun” one night. She said it’s “exciting” also to see the reaction of many of the retailers selling the book. They include the “Friends” gift shop in the Visitor Information Centre, Elysion Florals, the Jasper Artists Guild

gallery in the library building, Bearfoot in the Park and Tekarra Color. Most of the initial print run of 1,000 is on shelves now; Waxer expects to order a second run “sooner than later.” The book was produced by the town’s CFS department, following discussions at Early Childhood Collaborative Action Team (CAT) meetings about

J A S P ER , A B

ways to encourage parents to engage in activities with their children. It was guided by research on early childhood development and focuses on five key areas (physical health and wellbeing; social competence; emotional maturity; language and thinking skills; communication and general knowledge) that have been shown to improve lifelong health, learning, relationships and wellbeing. “With society’s ever-increasing concern about nature deficit disorder, we also wanted to showcase a few special places in Jasper that provide parents with pleasurable opportunities to spend time outdoors, in nature, with their children,” Olsen said. “(We) hope that the uniquely Jasper story and artwork not only will delight children with the adventures of the cinnamon bear, but also will appeal to parents for the adventures they can have with their children as they follow the bear’s route.” The book also includes wildlife safety messaging from Parks Canada in the back. Waxer said they took steps to make sure the bear is always separated from the people in the illustrations, even adding a fence between him and a family enjoying a picnic nearby after the first draft of page seven. Fun fact: the family is a future version of Rico’s, with her brand new baby appearing as a toddler. A book launch party will be held Sept. 17 at the Jasper library. It runs from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., with readings at 5, 6 and 7 p.m.

NEW JASPER REC FAIR HELPED GROUPS LINK WITH LOCALS

CRAIG GILBERT PUBLISHER@FITZHUGH.CA

Last week Jasper tried out something new to help Jasperites try something new. The first-ever Jasper Rec and Resource Fair held on the soon-to-be a lot more slippery curling rink floor on Sept. 6 featured 50 community groups offering everything from help with getting a job to help with tuning your bike. Jasper Freeride coach Nic Bazin said his group takes part in similar events in Hinton. “It is really helpful for a small organization to show what your club has to provide to the community,” he said. “So, having one of these in Jasper helped quite a bit.” Community and Family Services is now collecting feedback on the fair to determine whether it would be something the community would benefit from on an annual basis, according to Lisa Riddell at Community and Family Services. Input can be sent to lriddell@town. jasper.ab.ca. In order to ensure that Jasperites can find out about activities in the community all year, Community and Family Services is also collecting contact information to create a Recreation Directory. If you are part of a group or team and would like to be listed in the recreation directory, please fill out the short survey at www.jasper-alberta. com/2500/Rec-Resource-Fair.

What a heat score Mounties in Jasper took 21 pounds of weed off the street after responding to a routine noise complaint last week. Officers were called to the Athabasca Hotel Sept. 6 to deal with a man “yelling and causing a disturbance.” When they arrived, the 26-year-old Edmonton man was leaving in a silver car, which they pulled over. They found marijuana on his person, so they searched the vehicle and found 21 pounds of cannabis. He’s charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking and is due in Jasper court on Oct. 25.

HISTORY AT A GL ANCE

JASPER by James Simpkins

LET TER TO THE EDITOR

Liberals plan to ‘deep-six’ the NEB Editor’s note: Stuart Taylor is running for the United Conservative Party nomination in West Yellowhead. Dear editor,

QUESTION OF THE WEEK Should Jasper designate a cannabis smoking/ vaping zone on the east side of Connaught Drive (across the street from the stores)?

Yes/No

Is Justin Trudeau grinding the energy industry into the ground? This summer, a number of Canadians have observed that it seems the only way we can get a pipeline built is if it is nationalized—taken over by the government. For those who have reached such a conclusion, they’ll likely be even more alarmed when they learn about Justin Trudeau’s new plans for approving energy projects. Many analysts, including senior executives in the energy industry, say Trudeau’s new regulatory provisions will grind the oil and gas industry into the ground. The National Energy Board was born in the late 1950s on the heels of one of the most raucous debates ever in the House of Commons. It was a time when goings-on in the House were described as “absolute pandemonium.” It was one of the most spectacular confrontations in Canadian political history, and one that led to the fall of the Liberal government of the day. It was as a result of that situation that the NEB was created, its purpose being to separate the regulatory approval of pipelines from the whims and influences of politicians. The NEB thus became a professional quasi-judicial entity that was independent, with competent professionals making decisions in the national interest. The NEB became a respected institution and regulatory mechanism that was highlyregarded the world over—except by the Liberal Party of Justin Trudeau when he was Opposition Leader, and now that he is Prime Minister. Earlier this year, the Trudeau government introduced Bill C–69 which is the Liberal’s new Canadian Energy Regulator Act intended to replace the NEB Act in its entirety. This action ignores the exceptional work and competence that the NEB has demonstrated in

delivering one of the safest and most efficient pipeline systems in the world. This new bill will mandate a greatly expanded scope for assessing not just pipeline projects, but climate change, upstream emissions and even gender equity issues related to pipelines. It eliminates the current standard test for interveners and throws the doors open at proceedings for the unaffected and the malcontent to become part of the approval process. It will make Canadian resource regulation more difficult, even onerous. The new act also establishes ministerial discretions. In other the words, the decision in 1957 which created the NEB and separated regulatory approval from political manipulation and interference, will be reversed. At the same time that the Trudeau government is endeavouring to deep-six the respected NEB, it has announced pending legislation including the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act and the Oil Tanker Moratorium Act and Regulations, both of which are sending ripples through the investment community. The Notley government very much has its fingerprints on these efforts to exasperate the energy sector. Since 2015, it has increased corporate income taxes by 20 per cent, implemented a carbon tax, and introduced a slate of new environmental regulations including what amounts to an effective cap on oil sands production. This Trudeau-Notley tag team has pushed Alberta’s investment climate far below previous years’ levels. Not long ago, Alberta ranked 14th out of 156 jurisdictions. Now we are 33rd of 97 jurisdictions – well behind our competitors. (Texas, Oklahoma, and North Dakota boast the most attractive energy investment climate in the world. Saskatchewan and Newfoundland rate well above Alberta, and are in the top ten worldwide.) Investors can’t help but express caution when they ask where the over-politicization of energy regulation will ultimately lead. Stuart Taylor, Hinton

LET TER TO THE EDITOR

Conservatives left infrastructure deficit Dear editor,

As I read Stuart Taylor’s recent letter to the editor, I was left with more questions than answers. Mostly, I was left wondering about how the UCP, who are quick to criticize our government’s spending to protect public services, would approach managing Albertans’ hardearned money. I was left wondering because I didn’t see a single mention of the UCP’s plan. No mention of recklessly cutting 20 per cent out of the budget. And no mention of a massive tax break for the richest one per cent of Albertans. Mr. Taylor did however point out one thing that I found interesting. He mentioned that we were left with a deficit by the previous Conservative government. He is referring of course to a fiscal deficit, but this is not the only, or even the most troubling, deficit we inherited. We, along with all Albertans, inherited a major infrastructure deficit: crumbling roads, rundown schools and underfunded hospitals. From day one, we have made it clear that we would not let that continue. We want our kids to have good schools and our loved ones to be well cared for. We are working to eliminate conservative waste and control spending, but we are doing so while defending our funding for classrooms and hospitals. We are working hard, and we are on the path to balance by 2023-24. We announced at the end of August that the deficit is down a billion dollars and Alberta’s economic recovery is on pace. Yes, we still have work to do so that our plan reaches all Albertans, but I want to stress that reckless cuts are not the answer. This is something that Jason Kenney does not understand, and that is a danger to the future of our kids’ education, our healthcare and the infrastructure we rely on.

With everything that has been in the news this past week, I think it’s important to add that we are very aware that we need to see the TransMountain Pipeline built to secure Alberta’s long-term fiscal and economic health. That is why Premier Notley has been firm and continues to be firm with the federal government. We have made more progress on getting a new pipeline built than was made when there were Conservatives in charge in Alberta and Ottawa, and we are not going to stop now.

At the end of the day, our government has proven that we care about what matters to Albertans. We understand Albertans’ priorities, and we will continue to protect what matters most while moving forward on the path to balance. We’re on your side. Sincerely, Eric Rosendahl MLA for West Yellowhead

ENJOY GREEN BEEF THIS FALL (NC) Our everyday food choices can play a big role in our community, affecting everything from the economy to the environment.

Take beef for example. Dr. Karen Beauchemin, an internationally recognized expert in beef nutrition and scientist at Agriculture and AgriFood Canada, recently teamed up with Australian

researchers to test a feed supplement that can help reduce methane emissions by up to 50 per cent in cattle while still supporting profitable dairy and beef cattle production. A great win for combatting climate change. It is work like this that has helped Canada’s beef sector reduce its environmental footprint over the past 30 years.

So, if you choose to pop that tasty morsel of meat in your mouth, take a minute to thank a scientist who is working hard to ensure your food is not made at the environment’s expense. Then try this delicious recipe from Canada Beef, which features a zingy lemon dressing and lets you take advantage of those last warm days with the grill.
