Public Utilities Board approves recovery of Thompson water utility deficits from 2014 and 2015 BY IAN GRAHAM

EDITOR@THOMPSONCITIZEN.NET

The Public Utilities Board of Manitoba (PUB) approved applications from the City of Thompson June 14 to recover water and wastewater utility operating deficits from 2014 and 2015. The city applied in 2015 for approval of a deficit of

OBITUARY RODNEY PHILLIP PENNELL We would sadly like to announce the early passing of Rodney Phillip Pennell with family by his side. Rodney passed away on the early morning of Tuesday, July 10, 2018 at Thompson General Hospital. Rodney was born September 29, 1975 in Thompson. He is survived by his Mother, Lenorah Fitzpatrick (Nick), his brothers Neil Pennell (Tracy) and Robert Pennell (Katherine), his Grandmothers, Rose Pennell and Gladys Price and his beloved nieces and nephews.

and released. The rail line in that area was cleared and repaired in less than a week, but service remained suspended because of heavy rains near Wabowden, about 100 kilometres south of Thompson, that closed the Hudson Bay Railway Thicket Subdivision, which forced the cancellation of northbound passenger train 693 between

$181,396 for 2014, which it proposed to recover from the utility’s accumulated surplus. The city said the 2014 deficit was due to the amount of public works resources required to repair a large number of water line breaks and for repairs to the wastewater treatment plant when the outfall for the sewage collapsed, resulting in flooding. The city said that it had reallocated a surplus of over $300,000 from the public works labour budget to cover the utility deficit. In December 2016 the city submitted an application to recover the 2015 deficit of $295,187 from the utility’s accumulated surplus. That

year’s deficit, the city said, was due to actual water consumption totalling only 1,314,926 cubic metres, about 20 per cent below the projected consumption of 1,624,625 cubic metres. The PUB issued a board order in 2009 that said utilities should maintain a working capital surplus equal to 20 per cent of annual expenses. In 2014, the city’s working capital surplus was about $450,000, well below the recommended amount of $746,000 based on that year’s working expenses. In 2015, there was no working capital surplus when it should have been about $728,000.

Management reorganization will see Alistair Ross oversee mining operations in Thompson, Sudbury and Voisey’s Bay Continued from Page 1 pending closure of the smelter and refinery. Despite these difficulties, at the same time Mark has led to Thompson team to significantly improve safety, reduce unit costs and achieve positive production results. I want to thank Mark for his ongoing commitment and wish him well in future endeavours.” Scott, who began his career with Inco in the human resources department in Ontario in 2001, replaced Lovro Paulic as vice-president of Manitoba Operations in February 2016 after Paulic left Thompson to become the director of operations at PT Vale Indonesia. Prior to becoming vice-president, Scott was the manager of mining and milling for Vale Manitoba Operations. Grimbeek said there was still work to be done on the management structure of individual organizations and that more information would be coming in the weeks and months ahead. “The structure for the Manitoba Operations is still being finalized and we will share more information in the coming weeks,” said Ryan Land, Vale Manitoba Operations corporate affairs

and organizational development manager, in an email. Warren Luky, president of United Steelworkers Local 6166, which represents about 800 hourly workers in Vale Manitoba Operations, said there’s still a lot of uncertainty about exactly what the management structure of the division will look like. “What I understand is we’ll be run as a satellite mine out of Sudbury such as Voisey’s Bay will so it‘s still not clear how that’s all going to work,” he said, noting that the union had fostered a good relationship with local management over the years. “We’ve got a lot of work done together and it’s taken a lot of work on that relationship and now the change is that we’ll be under Sudbury in some format. We don’t know all the details yet.” Luky said Manitoba Operations currently have just over 1,100 employees, including nearly 300 staff, though he expects that number to change very soon and says that the company wants to reduce the number of hourly workers to about 600 and that some staff could be receiving layoff notices or buyout offers next month. According to Land, Vale Manitoba Operations won’t

ges in the business, it remains a relatively dynamic process.” Luky went on to say that the union is also uncertain about what will happen to the Birchtree Mine, which went on care and mainten-

ance last October. “I’ve understood unofficially from Mark Scott his desire was that they do some drilling to define what they have there and see if they can make it a mine or if there’s anything they can go after that’s viable as an ore body,” Luky said. “They’re paying $3 million a year just to keep it on care and maintenance right now but we really don’t know what’s going to happen to Birchtree. I suspect with the current nickel price, which isn’t fantastic right now, it would be difficult to make a business case to go back at it.” The uncertainty is leading some employees, who don’t know if they will be laid off or if there will be any opportunity for them to return if they are, to resign and either move out of Thompson or on to a new career. “A lot of them still want to work here, still want to be miners here or work in the mill and that’s the troubling part,” Luky said. “What do you tell these guys without a hard number from HR on how many people are going to get laid off? It’s an uncertain future and all we can hope for is that the nickel market will float us out of this.”

Mayor and council should reject executive staff wage increase

To the editor: With a shrinking population and tax base in Thompson due Vale’s downsizing and the ripple effect still to come, it’s time for financial austerity and a serious look at all of the City of Thompson’s operations and where productivity and return on investment is best placed. As the City has asked the public for input on these matters and has already cut back on youth programs for the summer, which is a

penny wise - pound foolish approach, this is NOT the time to raise executive management salaries as recommended by the city manager’s memo of June 26. It may only be $25,000 a year, but over the next four years that $100,000 could be used for youth summer programs that would be much better spent. Regardless whether “salary increases have mirrored increases union employees received” or not, that policy needs to

be reviewed immediately. It’s time for our community leaders and city management to show some fiduciary responsibility and be accountable to the taxpayer. Salary increases are not acceptable during Thompson’s economic plight and only months before municipal elections. Council can defer any increase in spending until after the election, let the public have their say, and let a new council make that decision. That would be the responsible approach

to take.  Nelson Mandela, former President of South Africa and admired by the world, once said his job as leader was “to serve my people”. Council needs to show some true leadership and make decisions that serve and benefit the community at large and not just executive staff. If this gets approved by council, there should be a public outcry!  Sincerely,    Volker Beckmann

When the gloves are off To the editor: Having tactfully avoided criticism of the city council, for my own reasons, I feel it’s time to break with precedence for a second time. I know it’s summer, and who the hell wants to listen to my mumbling or read city council minutes

for that matter? But two items put on the agenda at council meeting were sort of bizarre. The pathetic attempt to reduce council by two councillors was a little conspicuous. The issue died thankfully, when it was learned that Mr. Fenske can’t wave a magic wand and change provincial legislation per-

taining to our city. The second item, that seems to be coming up all too frequently, are the “character assassinations” of both Mr. Matechuk and Mr. Wong. Most people, especially with Thompson’s downturn, appreciate any council member who scrutinizes the spending of our

Greyhound will cease its passenger and freight services in provinces west of Ontario in the fall, leaving those without vehicles in northern Manitoba and Saskatchewan with few options. Creighton and Denare Beach residents were dealt a similar blow in May 2017 when the Saskatchewan Transportation Company ceased service, but come Oct. 31, there could be absolutely no road-travel connection from our area to other areas of Manitoba or Saskatchewan. News spread quickly across the western provinces about the plan to end service, and it seems to be the average person from small town Canada who will suffer once the closure hits. The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs released a statement regarding the end of the service, noting it will have a negative impact on First Nations in

the affected provinces. Grand Chief Arlen Dumas spoke about how many First Nations communities in Manitoba do not have adequate medical services, and residents of those communities rely on bus service, sometimes travelling up to 14 hours to larger centres for medical appointments. Without a bus service, the looming question is how residents of these communities are supposed to be able to access adequate health care. Residents of Flin Flon who have relied on the bus to get to appointments in Winnipeg are surely asking similar questions. And while some people have relied on bus service only for medical reasons, it has served as a link to other areas in the province for many community members. For some post-secondary students, it’s their way home to visit family during the holidays. For others, it’s a way to connect for business. For those without a vehicle,

it may be the only practical, cost-effective service that lets them head out of town. And then there’s the issue of mail. Packages are often shipped to Flin Flon, Creighton and Denare Beach via bus freight service, ordered by both local businesses as well as those who do some of their shopping online (shopping local is so important, but there are times when a search through town leaves a shopper empty-handed). Without the service, there’s little known about if and how those packages will still arrive on northern doorsteps. Business decisions are rarely personal – they’re about the bottom line, and Greyhound has said the northern and rural routes in the western provinces were simply no longer sustainable. Be that as it may, the end of bus service to Flin Flon and northern Manitoba will certainly be felt on a personal level.

Stella Locker reflects on a lifetime in Thompson BY KYLE DARBYSON

KYLE@THOMPSONCITIZEN.NET

For her 85th birthday, former city council member Stella Locker was treated to a surprise luncheon at the Mystery Lake Hotel, which featured appearances from old friends and colleagues. One of the lead organizers of this July 10 get together was current city council member Judy Kolada, who wanted to recognize Locker for all the work she’s put into the local government from 1989 to 2014. “Stella’s municipal service spans over six terms on council and she’s served under three mayors,” said Kolada, who worked alongside Locker for a good chunk of that time. “Her motto was always ‘tell it like it is’ and she’s someone who keeps people on their toes when their were on council.” But Locker’s legacy in the Hub of the North extends beyond that quarter century she spent in those council chambers. In fact, Locker is one of the foundational members of the community, having arrived in 1963, six years after Thompson was established as a “planned community” thanks to an agreement between the provincial government

and Inco Limited. While Locker initially moved to Thompson to continue her career in nursing, she encountered a pretty significant roadblock in this pursuit and turned to real estate instead. “My husband had his broker’s license and he was also an insurance broker,” Locker said in a follow-up conversation with the Thompson Citizen. “I came in in the afternoon just sort of doing clerical work. That wasn’t good enough for me, so I got my broker’s license a year later.” From there, Locker did her best to integrate into the broader community, becoming a member of charitable groups like the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire and helping found one of Thompson’s oldest annual traditions. “We used to have, in Flin Flon, a music festival that I really thought was great,” she said. “I talked them into getting all the information from Flin Flon and we started the Festival of the Arts here and then I ended up being the president of that.” When Thompson was officially incorporated as a town in 1967, Locker started to get more involved in local politics as a citizen and became the chairperson of

the city planning commission, a position she would hold until 1972. On top of her volunteer work and growing reputation as a skilled real estate broker, Locker would continue to explore the ins and outs of government service during the 1980s. Not only did she serve on the province’s University Grants Commission and become a chairperson for the city’s industrial commission from 1982 to 1984, but she would later run for a council seat in 1989, despite harbouring some reservations about her own ability. “When I went on council at that time they had engineers, geologists, lawyers, doctors, people that I had something to gain from,” said Locker. “And I thought ‘what am I bringing there?’ other than ‘ok, I know what’s happening in the community.’” Throughout her 25 years on the council, Locker would eventually find her place and established herself as “the outspoken one,” especially whenever the topic of “land issues” came up. “Whenever land issues were on the agenda the old boys took turns turfing Stella out of chambers, citing ‘conflict of interest’ because of Stella’s involvement with real estate,” said Kolada, who was first elected to city

From that time forth she was able to offer her expert advice.” Besides this kind of political theatre, Locker was a very active member of the council, serving as deputy major and undertaking a lot of lobbying work for

the Manitoba Association of Urban Municipalities (the precursor to the Association of Manitoba Municipalities). Even after she stepped away from council in 2014, Locker hasn’t lost any of her work ethic and continues to put in long hours at Locker’s Real Estate Brokers in The Plaza mall. And while she won’t be involved in the city’s

upcoming municipal election in the fall, Locker said any prospective candidate for city council should be friendly, community oriented and willing to learn. “Everything was really a good learning experience,” she said. “I think if you want to really grow in a community you really have to get involved and do things. You can’t just get the profits from somebody else.”

Relying on private sector to provide transportation puts people at risk, opposition parties contend Opposition politicians are calling upon both the federal and provincial governments to step in and ensure that transportation services are available to Canadians outside of major urban centres now that Greyhound is planning to stop running buses in Western Canada come Halloween. Federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh sent a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau July 11, asking his government to develop a funding plan to stop the cancellation of crucial bus routes in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. “This federal funding plan must ensure there is no interruption or reduction in bus service, so no community is left stranded,” wrote Singh. “I urge you to immediately partner with the premiers of affected provinces and leaders of affected municipalities to discuss that plan, starting by making this a priority item at the upcoming meeting of the Council of the Federation in St. Andrews, New Brunswick.” Singh said that having

bus service in remote areas was a safety matter and said that a statement given to the media by Transport Canada, which said “there are no federal government funding programs that would provide an operational subsidy for private intercity bus carriers,” was an instance of the federal government abdicating its responsibility for interprovincial transportation. In Manitoba, the Liberals and the Green Party followed in the footsteps of the NDP in criticizing the Progressive Conservative government’s response to the impending shutdown, which was similarly dismissive of the possibility of subsidizing bus companies, something the previous NDP provincial government did for a few years after Greyhound said in 2009 that it would be ceasing service in Manitoba in 30 days, a move that didn’t actually take place. “The federal and provincial governments provide public support for transit inside the perimeter,” said Liberal leader Dougald Lamont in a July 12 press

release. “As a matter of fairness and equality, we must be willing to invest so Manitobans outside the perimeter can afford to travel as well.” Keewatinook Liberal MLA Judy Klassen said there were entrepreneurs ready to provide the service if there were supports to help them do so profitably. “I’ve heard from a local northern bus operator who is willing to take over some of the cancelled routes, but if a large company like Greyhound can’t afford to service the routes, how would smaller operators survive?” said Klassen. “That’s why we need support from both levels of government. The government has a role to play.” Manitoba Green Party leader James Beddome wrote a letter to Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler saying that merely hoping for private companies to step in to fill the gap was not an adequate response. “We do not rely on the private sector to build, maintain, and develop our road network and likewise

some public co-ordination and public investment in intercity transportation is likely required,” Beddome wrote. “Merely hoping that someone in the private sector will step up to the plate is not the kind of leadership Manitobans need. “ Flin Flon NDP MLA Tom Lindsey said July 10 that because many health care services are not available in rural and Northern Manitoba, access to transportation was an essential service. “The province needs to show leadership and make sure our rural and northern communities have access to transportation in the near and short term−we can’t leave our communities cut off,” Lindsey said. Although Ontario-based bus company Kasper Transportation has said it will step in to take over some of Greyhound’s routes in Manitoba, including the one from Winnipeg to Thompson, an organization opposed to provincial government cuts in Saskatchewan warns that relying on other companies to step in when one bows out is not reliable,

When the Crown corporation Saskatchewan Transportation Corporation shut down in 2017, 10 companies stepped up to take over some of their routes but only two of those companies remain a year later, says a Saskatchewan organization opposed to provincial budget cuts. pointing to the example of what happened when the Saskatchewan Transportation Corporation, a Crown corporation, was shut down in 2017. “Encouraged by the SaskParty government’s rhetoric about the capacity of the market to provide necessary services once the publicly subsidized Crown corporation was out of the way, 10 companies vied for the former STC routes,” said a media release from

the Saskatchewan-based Stop the Cuts. “One year later, only two of those companies remain and most of the routes have no common carrier passenger service.” “If the federal, provincial and municipal governments of Canada want to truly develop a model to replace Greyhound maybe it’s time for a national, subsidized transportation system that unites the country” said Stop The Cuts.
