‘I have cried and longed for home long enough’

PAUL JAMES “PJ” MOLLOY It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend on June 29, 2018 after a courageous and dignified battle with cancer. Paul leaves to mourn his son Richard (Jodi) Molloy, Langley, B.C., son in law Terry Lamontagne, Thompson, MB, grandchildren: Brian and Isaiah Lamontagne, Amber, Rachel and Christopher Molloy and great grandchildren Madison and Jaxon Kennedy. He is survived by his sister Elizabeth Boardman. He was predeceased by his parents: Florence and Edward Molloy; wife Elizabeth Molloy and his daughter Christine Lamontagne. Paul was born in St. John’s, Nfld on July 6, 1945, the fourth of five children. He met and married his wife, Elizabeth, on June 3, 1968. Christine came along in 1970 and Richard in 1973. In 1974 the family moved to Thompson where Paul had begun working for Inco, and settled into life in the north, becoming part of a growing community. Paul was very active in the community both on a personal level and for the good of the community. He volunteered tirelessly for the Kidney Foundation. He spent countless years in the rink with minor hockey and the North Stars. Every year when the snow had melted enough to get a round in, you would find Paul at the Golf Club. In his later years he was very active with the Air Port Authority. A celebration of life will held at St. Dominic’s Roman Catholic Church in Neepawa Manitoba. Friday, July 13th at 12:00 PM. Internment will follow at the Neepawa Cemetery. In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made in Paul’s memory to the Neepawa Bird Sanctuary. It was one of Paul’s favorite places to visit. The family would like to thank all the nurses and staff at the Neepawa Health Centre and most of all the nurses and staff at Country Meadow’s Evergreen Wing who always took the best care of Paul.

Cannabis company Delta 9 intends to open store in Thompson by the end of 2018 BY IAN GRAHAM

EDITOR@THOMPSONCITIZEN.NET

One of four cannabis companies conditionally approved by the province to offer retail sales of marijuana in Manitoba following legalization of the drug, expected by Oct. 17, announced plans July 3 to open four stores, including one in Thompson. “I guess someone from outside of the province looking in and looking at Thompson and maybe some of the mills closing down and things like that, it might not seem like an attractive location but as a Manitoba-based company we certainly recognize that Thompson’s a large intake area or trade area, the gateway to the north is what we’ve been calling it,” said Delta 9 Cannabis Inc. CEO John Arbuthnot in a July 6 interview. “For us it was a very strategic location to get into in terms of not only servicing the area in and around Thompson but also the entirety of Northern Manitoba.” Delta 9 will also open two stores in Winnipeg and one in Brandon, and has aims of having the first Winnipeg store open on the first day of legal marijuana sales, with the other locations set to open within a few months afterward. “It’s still a little too early to say when our Thompson store will be open but we are targeting this calendar year,” Arbuthnot

says. “Otherwise, and for those who are not able to make it to the store in Thompson, we will have mail order delivery to every corner of the province. We’ll have an online portal available Oct 17. We operate a full call centre right now on the medical side of our business. We’ll be expanding that out for recreational as well so those who need to get in touch with us for their supply of cannabis will certainly be able to do so.” Delta 9 has not yet revealed where its Thompson store will be. “We haven’t publicly disclosed our location,” Arbuthnot says. “We’ve been working on this for a few months and we’ll be making that disclosure public in the next few weeks but there’s nothing quite more that I can say on that at this point.” Delta 9 has a contract to supply 2.3 million grams of marijuana in Manitoba in the first year of legalization, says Arbuthnot, who started the company with this father in 2013 as a medical marijuana supplier after his family was affected by someone’s illness. “We saw firsthand the benefits that medical cannabis could have in the absence of traditional pharmaceutical drugs working so we certainly knew that medical marijuana was effective,” he said. When they were first seeking

As a result, the plan to slowly

and organically grow the business has also changed. “Over 2017 we really started to kick things into high gear with legalization coming and we raised $34 million over the year and listed our company on the Toronto Ventures Exchange last fall in November so our shares do trade publicly now,” he said. “Really we’re building out … a large production facility here in Winnipeg. We’re investing

Horse named Penny by Westwood Grade 1 class could grow up to join RCMP Musical Ride

Thompson Citizen photo courtesy of Thompson RCMP Monique Rindall’s Grade 1 class at Westwood School received a photo and a certificate from Thompson RCMP detachment officer-in-charge Insp. Kevin Lewis, left, and Staff Sgt. Colby Argue, right, after their suggested name of Penny was one of 12 from across Canada chosen for this year’s new foals at the police force’s breeding farm in Ontario. Monique Rindall’s Grade 1 class at Westwood School whose suggested name of Penny was chosen by the RCMP for one of 12 new foals born at the police force’s breeding farm in Pakenham, Ontario received a horseshoe and a framed photo of their horse on June 27. The photo and horseshoe, as well as a certificate signed by the RCMP commissioner, were presented to the class by Thompson RCMP detachment officer-in-charge Insp. Kevin Lewis and Staff Sgt. Colby Argue, who also provided some history about the RCMP Musical Ride, the horses and answered questions about the RCMP in general. The class’s winning entry was the only one of the 12 submitted on behalf of an entire class. The other winning names this year, submitted by youth aged 14 and under from Alberta, B.C., New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Saskatchewan and Yukon – all beginning with the letter P – were Poppy, Partner, Pixie, Pax, Pace, Pride, Pascal, Phantom, Prince, Patriot and Puck. Some of the foals may grow up to become performing horses in the Musical Ride. In addition to the photo and certificate, all winners received 2018 Musical Ride trading cards and a horseand-rider pin. “Every year we look forward to the Name the Foal contest as it connects children to the Musical Ride,” says Supt. Mike Côté, officer in charge of the Musical Ride and Heritage Branch. “We’re already looking forward to next year’s contest, where the names will start with the letter R.”

Negotiations on proposed sale of Hudson Bay Railway have broken down, owner says Canadian Transportation Agency files repair order in Federal court to make it enforceable as a court order BY IAN GRAHAM

EDITOR@THOMPSONCITIZEN.NET

An agreement in principle for a Northern Manitoba ownership group to take over OmniTrax’s Hudson Bay Railway (HBR) from The Pas to Churchill, the northern section of which has been unusable for more than a year, has fallen apart and receiving another piece of bad news is disheartening Churchill residents, their Member of Parliament says. “Over the past several months we have been working with the consortium to finalize the sale of the HBR,” said a July 3 statement from the railway company. “Despite our best efforts to find common ground on certain key issues, it now appears that this transaction has fallen apart and that a sale of the HBR to this group may not be possible. We would like to thank Fairfax Financial [one of the proposed ownership group members] and [Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs] Grand Chief [Arlen] Dumas for their good faith efforts to get a deal done. This outcome is unexpected and very unfortunate. We offer our apologies to all those who

depend on the line. We will continue to pursue any and all opportunities to sell the HBR and related assets, and we will look to do so as expeditiously as possible.” Churchill-Keewatinook Aski NDP MP Niki Ashton, who was in Churchill the day news of negotiations falling apart broke, said July 4 that residents were devastated by the latest development. “What I heard from people in Churchill was unmitigated anger, frustration, deep disappointment. People in Churchill have had enough. They’ve had enough of OmniTrax’s games. They’ve had enough of feeling as though they’re being held hostage and that was a word that I kept hearing repeatedly yesterday. They’re sick of seeing the federal government share empty words of rhetoric, words that they feel are empty when there is no action.” Ashton said most of the blame lies with the railway’s owner, which also owns the Port of Churchill, where grain-shipping operations have been suspended since 2016. “I want to call out Pat Broe, a two-bit Donald Trump

wannabe I would say, somebody who has shown not just disrespect but even disdain for Churchill,” she said. But she also said the federal government bears some responsibility for allowing the town to be without a land transportation link for more than a year since OmniTrax announced last June that flooding had rendered parts of the HBR between Gillam and Churchill inoperable. “What we want to see is the federal government … stand up for the people of Churchill, the people of our north and the people of Canada and that’s why I’m saying, based on what I heard yesterday, is that we need … decisive and immediate action when it comes to dealing with the port, dealing with the railway,” Ashton said. “We share the concerns of the citizens of Churchill, and Northern Manitoba,” said a spokesperson for Natural Resources Canada, whose minister Jim Carr was in Churchill when OmniTrax revealed that talks had broken down. “This situation has had significant impacts to the town of Churchill and the communities along the line.

The people of Churchill and all Manitobans can be sure that our government is here to defend their interests. We understand the importance of this rail line to the people of Northern Manitoba. The government of Canada has always been ready and willing to be a major partner in this project and we will find a way forward that will deliver a solution. We encourage all parties to achieve a reasonable deal in the best interests of the people of Manitoba.” Churchill’s mayor and council said in a July 4 statement that efforts to transfer the railway, port and OmniTrax’s tank farm in Churchill to northern ownership were continuing. “Our efforts are being supported by the government of Canada,” said the statement. “This process has not been easy and has not been timely. We share your frustration. But our buying group is united. We remain at the table and we fully support the efforts to conclude a reasonable deal. Priority number one remains finding a solution to repair the rail line as soon as possible.” A complaint filed by the Manitoba NDP caucus regarding the railway owners refusing to perform repairs needed to restore rail service to Churchill resulted in the Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) ordering the company to begin fixing the line by July 3. HBR said it is prepared to proceed with those repairs, though it is also appealing the CTA’s order. “We initiated the repair process last week by issuing an RFP [request for propos-

als] through our engineering firm AECOM,” HBR said July 3. “However, we want to make clear that this development may jeopardize the opening of the rail line this season. As we have previously stated, we are not in a position to fund the entirety of the repairs to the HBR in the absence of a sale agreement.” A CTA spokesperson told the Thompson Citizen July 6 that, in response to concerns expressed that HBR might not be complying with the federal order, “as per s. 33 of the Canada Transportation Act the CTA has filed the order with the Federal Court today, which makes it enforceable as an order of the court. CTA staff continue to monitor the situation and will take action as required to ensure compliance with the order.” Ashton also said that Churchill residents were frustrated with the provincial government, especially in light of the fact that propane supplies are running low with further fuel shipments not scheduled immediately. “Premier [Brian] Pallister is the premier of Manitoba,” she said. “Churchill is a gem for us in this province. It’s renowned across our country and across the world and I would expect the premier to stand up for the community. People yesterday felt abandoned by the provincial government, very scared about the propane situation as well and repeatedly saying, ‘Where is our provincial government?’ I have no doubt that things would move faster in the right direction if we had a premier that actually cared

about Churchill.” The premier told the Citizen that the Manitoba government appreciates the federal government’s efforts to restore rail service to the Hudson Bay port town. “This resolve within areas of federal responsibility is critical to overcoming the obstacles that appear to have arisen in closing the transaction,” said a written statement from Pallister. “In the meantime, the government of Manitoba will continue to directly support the people of Churchill and Northern Manitoba, by making provision for the supply of fuel and essential supplies, and by delivering on its 10-year $500M commitment to support the community in areas of provincial jurisdiction.” Service on the railway from Winnipeg to The Pas that links up with the HBR and provides passenger trains from Winnipeg to Gillam – as well as Churchill up to June 2017 – is currently suspended after a train derailed 37 kilometres north of Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan around 3:05 a.m. July 5 while en route to The Pas. Sixteen passengers and five crew on board the nine-car, two-locomotive train at the time were taken to health care facilities in Hudson Bay for assessment and treatment and have now been released, said Via Rail, which operates passenger train service between Winnipeg and The Pas as well as on the HBR. Via Rail services between Winnipeg and Gillam are suspended until further notice, the company said.

PESTICIDE CONTROL PROGRAM Public Notice Canadian Kraft Paper Industries Ltd. intends to undertake a pesticide application program as part of its Forest Management Annual Harvest and Renewal Plan. This is an annual occurrence. As a follow up to renewal activities such as tree-planting, the application of the herbicide Visionmax (glyphosate) is used to control hardwood and broadleaf shrubs to allow for the re-establishment of boreal softwood forest stands. One of our obligations is to ensure that harvested softwood dominated forest stands re-establish as softwood dominated stands. Maintaining previous forest conditions provides for the sustainability of plant and wildlife species in the Forest Management License Area. Portions of some plantations near the following locations will have herbicide activities take place: Three Finger Road, Sherridon Road, Naosap Road, Wabishkok Road, Kississing Road, Hobbit Road, Duval Road, PTH 10 (south of Flin Flon, north of Beach Ridge Road junction, north of PR 282, and south of PTH 60 junction), Payuk Winter Road, Egg Lake Road, Atik Road, Long Lake Road, Halfway Road, Lesko Road, Beach Ridge Road, PR 287, PR 384, Crossing Bay Road, Okaw Road, Talbot Road, Baril Road, Springwater Road, Dolomite Road, PTH 39 (at PR 373 juction), Buzz Lake Winter Road, South Jonas, Bruneau Road, Buckingham Lake Road, PTH 6 (between the South Jonas and North Jonas junctions), Wintering Peninsula Road, Lucky Bay Road. Any person may, within 15 days of publication of this notice, send written submissions regarding the control program, or register their written objection to the use of pesticide next to their property, to the department below. This program will take place during the period of August 15th to September 30th of 2018.

The gold medal game was a rematch with Lake Manitoba, this time with a drastically different outcome. The offensive hustle started early with Gurniak and Monias scoring within the first 50 seconds to

give their team an early 2–0 lead. The score would stay that way until halfway through the second period with Spence and Rempel both adding goals to give their team a 4–0 lead going into the final period.

The King Miners never let up in the third period, with Hale, Locke and Horning all scoring to make it a 7–0 final for the King Miners. Skylar Szocs would record his third shutout of the tournament and received

the game star. The last time the midget AA King Miners won provincial gold was in 2016 in Gimli, where the team bested the Peguis Midgets in the fi nals by a fi nal score of 8–3.

Hayley Jenkins reflects on four years of activism and academic achievement

Thompson Citizen photo by Kyle Darbyson R.D. Parker Collegiate principal Rob Fisher and graduate Hayley Jenkins at the school’s June 27 graduation ceremony at the C.A. Nesbitt Arena. BY KYLE DARBYSON

KYLE@THOMPSONCITIZEN.NET

Thompson Citizen photo by Ian Graham Mike Haggith was the first performer in the summer Friday noon-hour concert series at MacLean Park July 6. There is no concert this week because of King Miner Day but the stage by City Hall will feature live music once again on July 20 from noon to 1 p.m.

Even though R.D. Parker Collegiate’s June 27 graduation ceremony highlighted a lot of worthy academics, one student stood apart from the rest. Just as Hayley Jenkins was about to accept her high school diploma, principal Rob Fisher asked her to take a seat in the middle of the stage at the C.A. Nesbitt Arena, so the event’s announcer would have enough time to read out all of the many scholarships she received in her graduating year. Jenkins ended up sitting there for almost 30 seconds as the announcer highlighted her overall academic performance and various other achievements through extracurricular activities. Altogether, these various scholarships added up to around $25,000, which is a testament to Jenkins’s

hard work in the classroom and out in the community as a whole. “I really enjoy school and I really love working with the humane society and with the social justice group [Hands, Heart and Hope] H3,” she said. “So it’s not hard to do the things you love. It did get stressful at times, but I just learnt how to manage my time well.” The biggest piece of this grand total came from the BMO Financial Group Leader of Tomorrow Scholarship, which is worth $16,000 over four years and is only given out to a handful of prospective University of Manitoba students. Jenkins described the process of applying for this scholarship as “pretty intense,” since she had to maintain an academic average of 90 per cent and highlight her leadership

qualities during a series of interviews with the university’s staff. Thankfully, Jenkins had plenty of material to pull from this school year alone. Not only did she take part in countless philanthropic pursuits, like organizing a new RDPC lunch program and collecting over $1,800 worth of groceries for the local food bank, but she also helped spearhead events of international relevance, like the northernmost March For Our Lives event in Canada. This doesn’t even take into account the various other projects she’s been involved with throughout the last four years, which eventually netted her a Young Humanitarian Award from the Manitoba Teachers’ Society back in April. While Jenkins currently has her sights set on obtaining

a bachelor of science and agriculture degree at the U of M, she told the Thompson Citizen that she isn’t going to leave her activist roots in the rear view mirror during her drive down south. “I feel like it shaped me as a person and when I leave and go to Winnipeg I truly want to join a social justice group and keep helping,” she said. “That’s probably one of my favourite things that I did all throughout high school.” In terms of advice she would give to fellow RDPC students who have their eye on achieving a similar level of success, Jenkins said anything is possible as long as they are willing to put in the work. “Just work hard and if you have a goal, even if it’s difficult, don’t give up,” she said. “That’s really all. Don’t give up ... and I did find throughout my high school career that asking for help tends to make things easier.”

full of university students from North Dakota off Highway 6 in June 2016 will spend three months in jail after having been TOTAL PRICE for dangerous convicted driving causing bodily harm, the Winnipeg Free Press has reported. Ezra Mulu, a Toronto resident who had a temporary teaching post in Snow Lake, said he was rushing to get to Thompson to buy a cell phone to call his daughter when he forced a van carrying eight people off the

road, seriously injuring the driver’s 11-year-old son, who was airlifted to a Winnipeg hospital for surgery to repair broken pieces of his skull. Mulu had closely passed two vehicles when he decided to pass another two by crossing a double yellow line, though he said that he could not get back into his own lane in time because the vehicle he was passing sped up. The van driver swerved to avoid Mulu’s oncoming car but the vehicle

rolled after going off the road. Provincial court Judge Tim Killeen found Mulu guilty of dangerous driving causing bodily harm rather than the original and more serious charge of criminal negligence after a trial in Thompson. Mulu, who was born in Nigeria and has been in Canada for 18 years, had no criminal record or driving offences prior to the accident but the judge said incarceration was necessary in cases when people disregarded

the rules of the road and cause accidents and injuries. He is also suspended from driving for a year. The Grand Forks Herald reported at the time of the crash that two vans were carrying students from the University of Jamestown who had been on an educational biology trip to Northern Manitoba when a vehicle came towards them driving in the wrong lane while attempting to pass another northbound vehicle and forced one of the vehicles off the road.
