OBITUARY KENNETH WILLIAM FEDAK Following an accident at his home in Creston, Kenneth William Fedak passed away peacefully in Kelowna on July 24, 2018, surrounded by his family. Ken spent his early years in Glenella, MB. He learned to skate on the outdoor rink there, and soon became the goalie for their hockey team. That skill gave him much fun and not a few bruises over the years, as he tended goal in the Inco (now Vale) shift league many times once he’d discovered mining in Thompson, MB in 1969. Ken worked in mining most of his adult life. The work interested him, and he enjoyed and cared about the good people who make the mining family. After working underground for years, Ken convinced Inco to sponsor him as a co-op student. With study and perseverance he turned his GED into a diploma in Mine Technology in 1984. Education opened new doors for him. Ken worked in engineering for awhile before taking on supervisory roles in Inco’s underground operations at the Birchtree mine. He retired as Section Coordinator there after 32 years of service. Ken and Alta retired to Creston, but he wasn’t done with minerals yet. Work with contractors and mining companies led to time with a diamond mine, then back to nickel again, then tungsten, gold, and finally to silver. Ken was a mine manager for Alexco Resources in the Yukon where he was busy planning for the next project at the time of his death. Ken was a confident capable man who thrived on hard work and was always searching for something new to do. He could fix just about anything, using his creativity, patience and whatever could be found to get that car, computer or whatever it was working as it should again. He was always trying to make things better, at work and at home. If that meant he’d have to learn to skim coat a ceiling, well, he’d do that, and wouldn’t be satisfied until that ceiling was perfectly smooth. Ken set a high standard for himself so that those around him couldn’t help but try a little harder too. Ken was a kind father who supported his children’s curiosity and ability to solve problems and to do the things they wanted to do. The cabin at Setting Lake gave him a chance to make adventures with them: a rink shovelled out on lake ice every winter, a real log cabin play house to construct together, swimming on a wilderness beach or camping on an island. And yes, of course, snowmen at the cabin do need bunny ears. Ken will be deeply missed by his wife of 45 years Alta (Belcher), son Christopher (Amina Stemmler) of Seattle, WA, daughters Shari (Matthew Falk) of Baltimore MD, and Erin of Whitehorse YT. He is survived by his brothers Donald (Doreen) of Neepawa MB, Gerald, Dennis and David of Edmonton AB; sisters Caroline (Larry) Harding and Denise (Ron) Peterson; sister-in-law Louise and brother-in-law Ken Quinn of Neepawa; nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews who cared about him greatly too. Ken was predeceased by his parents James and Catherine (Puhach); brothers Jimmy, Barry and Carey; sister Lorraine Guinn and sister-in-law Page g 10 Kelly.

Yogifoodipreneur Ken will be remembered by his coworkers, family and friends as that

An additional $6 million is also being delivered to municipalities held over from previous commitments. “Investing in municipal infrastructure ensures our communities can sustain continued, long-term growth,” said Wharton. “Maintaining our municipal roads helps to increase economic activity, extend

asset life, improve public safety and community development. Our roads are pipelines for the flow of both goods and services, and improvements ensure that our province will continue to see increased economic activity.” Association of Manitoba Municipalities president Chris Goertzen said the AMM worked with the government to help it select the approved projects. “Infrastructure remains a top priority for municipal-

ities and we will continue to advocate for building strong communities through streamlined cost-shared infrastructure funding programs with other orders of government,” Goertzen said. The provincial government held consultations in September 2016 to transition from traditional capital infrastructure programs to a more flexible program delivery that gives municipalities more of a say, Wharton says.

The Gift of Art one of three Indigenous Tourism Award finalists BY IAN GRAHAM

EDITOR@THOMPSONCITIZEN.NET

Jasyn Lucas’s studio/ art gallery/tattoo parlour The Gift of Art is one of 31 finalists for the 2018 Manitoba Tourism Awards, Travel Manitoba announced last week. The Thompson artist’s shop is one of three finalists in the Indigenous Tourism Award category, where he is up against the Manitoba Ahbee Festival and Traditional Trails, both in Winnipeg. Lucas is one of only two Northern Manitobans chosen as a finalist for an award, along with Mike Reimer of Churchill, who is up for an individual award of distinction. The Gift of Art opened in 2015 and Lucas was nominated for the award by Community Futures North Central Development (CFNCD), which helped him launch his business.

“We wanted to nominate Jasyn because we send for all our visitors there,” CFNCD development officer Charlene Kissick said in a July news release announcing his nomination. “People want the opportunity to purchase locally made products and this is truly the authentic experience they’re looking for.”  “He is setting an example for youth and the business community on how you can truly create a career out of your passion,” said CFNCD chairperson Darlene Beck at that time. “That’s pretty sweet to be recognized like that,” said Lucas of the nomination, crediting CFNCD with helping him to make a dream into a reality. “They were always there for support.” Lucas says he doesn’t view The Gift of Art, which

he runs with his partner Nikki Brightnose, as simply a place to sell art and do tattoos but as a welcoming space for anybody interested in art. “Often we’ll get people who come in in here and they really love to have a visit and talk and learn about the area but don’t necessarily have the funds to invest in art,” Lucas says. “We don’t just serve as a retail service. We’re also kind of ambassadors for the city.” The Indigenous tourism category recognizes excellence in the delivery of culturally based experiences that are respectful of the cultural and economic integrity of the local community and surrounding area. All Manitoba Tourism Award finalists will be honoured at the annual award celebration Sept. 13 in Winnipeg.

Thompson Citizen file photo The Gift of Art, a studio/art gallery/tattoo parlour run by Jasyn Lucas and Nikki Brightnose, is one of three finalists in the Indigenous tourism category for the 2018 Manitoba Tourism Awards, which will be handed out in September.

Violent crime severity increases among Manitoba youth BY CYNTHIA BIGRIGG

FLIN FLON REMINDER

Crime statistics are down in Flin Flon, but a report from Statistics Canada shows the severity of crime and violent crime has increased over the last year in Manitoba. Reports from Statistics Canada show the severity of youth violent crime showed the highest increase

out of all types of crime, coming in at an increase of 39.84 per cent. The percent change in severity of violent crime committed overall in the province increased by 4.51 per cent. The severity of non-violent crime committed by youth decreased in Manitoba by 6.87 per cent in 2017, while the severity of non-violent crime commit-

ted overall increased by 1.7 per cent in the same year. In Flin Flon, the severity of violent crime increased by 3.31 per cent in 2017, however overall crime severity decreased by 15.38 per cent. The Crime Severity Index measures changes in the level of severity of crime. All crimes in the in-

dex are assigned a weight based on their seriousness, which is determined by court sentences handed down by courts in all provinces and territories. More serious crimes are assigned higher weights, which means they have a greater impact on the changes in the index. Statistics Canada reports that the overall crime

rate in Flin Flon decreased by 9.46 per cent in 2017. Adults were charged with the most crimes reported in Flin Flon in 2017 – 165 adults were charged, while 32 youth were charged. More youth were charged in 2017 than in any of the previous three years. In terms of communities with similar populations to Flin Flon, Statistics Can-

RCMP seeking man who may be near Snow Lake La Ronge RCMP in Saskatchewan are seeking the public’s help in locating a Manitoba man who may be in Saskatchewan or Manitoba. Cory Mitchell McLaughlin, 45, of McCreary, Manitoba may be in Saskatchewan between La Ronge and the Manitoba boundary or in Manitoba between the Saskatchewan boundary and Snow Lake. McLaughlin is 5’8” tall and about 200 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes and has not been in contact with anyone since July 31 around 4:30 p.m. He may be driving a red/maroon 2005 Ford F150 with a Manitoba licence plate EJZ 932. There are concerns for McLaughlin’s well-being and anyone with information about him can contact La Ronge RCMP at 306-425-6730 or leave an anonymous tip via Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC Thompson General Hospital Access Change EFFECTIVE Wednesday, August 8th a construction zone will be set up near the Thompson General Hospital main entrance to allow some upgrade work to be done. This will result in the main entrance to the hospital being closed from August 8th to September 19th. During this time, the public must use the Emergency Department entrance when needing to attend the hospital. Please note the handicap parking spots located along the hemodialysis building will be temporarily moved to the public parking row closest to the Emergency Department door. All other public parking remains the same.

Cory McLaughlin has not been heard from since around 4:30 p.m. July 31. RCMP photo

The Northern Health Region asks the public to use caution when they enter the public parking area and observe the signs that will be in place to direct incoming traffic.

Government soliciting proposals for air services The Manitoba government announced July 26 that it had issued a request for proposals (RFP) to provide air services to the government to see if these services can be provided more cost effectively or with a higher level of service. “Our government’s top priority is ensuring that safety and service standards remain high, and that these vital services are always available when Manitobans need them. If the RFP does not result in an outcome that is at least as safe and efficient as the current delivery model, we will not proceed,” said Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler in a news release, noting that virtually all of Manitoba’s air ambulance services and more than half of its overall air service needs are provided privately already. “None of those private services were ever tendered, nor do we do have binding service contracts. There is no guarantee of available aircraft, no service standards and insufficient safety requirements. That’s why it is often a challenge to provide air ambulance service to communities who need it most.” Recently elected St. Boniface MLA and Manitoba Liberal party leader Dougald Lamont said providing air ambulance services privately would prevent jets from flying into some northern communities because their airports have gravel runways. “The Pallister government’s plan to privatize air ambulances means the best planes for the job can’t even land in 23 of the communities they are supposed to serve,” said Lamont. “This is reckless, ill-considered and if Minister Schuler is true to his word in saying they will not proceed with the RFP if it is less safe, it should be abandoned immediately.”  Using propeller planes instead could be the difference between life and death, said Liberal health critic Dr. Jon Gerrard. “In medical emergencies, like heart attack, strokes, or

traumatic accidents, an extra hour of travel can make the difference between life and death,” he said. Liberal Keewatinook MLA Judy Klassen, who represents some of those remote communities with gravel-runway airports, said the government is moving in the wrong direction. “The province of Manitoba already has gaps in emergency services that need improving, but instead we are being put at greater risk,”

Klassen said. “We need improved health care, not lower, slower care and response for northerners.” The government said it would retain ownership of all its forest fire water bombers and that they would remain under the direction of Manitoba’s wildfire program regarding when and where they were deployed. They could still be deployed outside of the province as part of mutual assistance agreement with other provinces, but

not without the provincial government’s assent. Most Canadian provinces supplement publicly operated forest firefighting planes with privately operated services, the provincial government says. “Our decision-making is always guided by what’s best for Manitobans,” Schuler said. “This RFP process will be driven by evidence, not by ideology. We will only proceed if the result will be a better level of service than is currently provided.”
