Minister Kent Hehr’s April


The Honourable Kent Hehr, MP

w. kenthehrmp.ca p. 403-244-1880

It has been over 100 days since I was appointed Minister of

Veterans Affairs and Associate Minister of National Defence.

Each and every day I am honoured and proud to serve those

who wear—or who have worn—our nation’s uniform.

The opportunity to work with my caucus colleagues from across

Canada is rewarding, and being a strong voice for Calgary and

Alberta at the cabinet table is a tremendous privilege and

responsibility that I do not take lightly.

The Prime Minister has given me an aggressive mandate, one

that I plan to fulfill through stronger relationships with veterans

and the organizations that represent them.

During my first days, I participated in a number of Veterans’

Week activities, including Remembrance Day ceremonies in

Ottawa. This special day was humbling and concluded a week

of learning and listening. It reconfirmed my commitment to

ensuring that we get Veterans the care they need, when and

where they need it.

Within the first month, I travelled across the country to engage

with Veterans and Veterans’ organizations, and held my first

Veterans’ Stakeholder Summit in Ottawa in December. Next, I

travelled to Poland and Ukraine to meet our Canadian Armed

Forces troops during the holidays and to thank them for their

service on behalf of all Canadians.

Veterans will once again be able to access services in offices

closed in recent years. And, we have already re-hired more than

175 front-line staff to provide more support to Veterans across


I know that times are tough for Alberta and Canada. In the first

100 days as a government, we have quickly begun work on key

campaign promises that I believe will make a real difference in

the lives of Canadians.

We have already reduced taxes to the middle class. This will put

more money in to 9 out of every 10 Canadian pockets.

We have implemented a consultation process for pipeline

projects that allows for industry, communities, first nations

and people who are concerned about the environment to take

part. I truly believe we are on a path to build public trust in our

approach so that we can move forward in a thoughtful manner

that will see success for our industry in the long run.

The Prime Minister confirmed that $700 million in Infrastructure

funds would start flowing to Alberta in the weeks ahead. Those

investments in projects identified by our Provincial partners

and their municipal partners will create thousands of jobs and

generate economic benefits for our great province.

My first 100 days have been exciting and I look forward to

achieving much more in the future. My door, and my mind,

will always remain open to the input and ideas of Canadians.

We were elected on a mandate of real change, and part of that

real change is a commitment to evidence based decisions and

consultation with all of you.

President’s Report

By Sara Poldaas

Plans are well underway to replace the playground at the ICA

Community Hall. The Playground Committee has been working

with both Parks Services and the Parks Foundation to secure additional

funding and compile our wish-list. We expect to release

a Request for Proposals by the end of March and have a preferred

design chosen by mid-April. Installing the new playground

using volunteer labour means more money to spend on equipment,

so if you’re able to help us install, please let us know!

Project Managers for both the 12 Street Bridge and Zoo Flood

Mitigation Projects attended our General Meeting on March 7

to listen to concerns and answer questions about the impact of

both initiatives on our community. If you weren’t able to attend,

you can read the (draft) minutes from that meeting on the ICA

website, here: http://www.icacalgary.com/meeting-minutes/

We’d like to express our sincere thanks to Katherine Hikita and

Vivin Thomas for their continued willingness to meet with us as

these projects progress.

Finally, a focused effort to get the cob oven in working order in

accordance with fire, health and safety guidelines has resulted in

plans to fire it up for community-sponsored events this spring. A

huge thanks goes to Shayne Dube, our ICA VP, Angie Lovegrove,

ICA Hall Manager and Mieka West, Cob Oven volunteer, who

have been driving this project in the last stages!

As always, if you have any questions, comments or would like

more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us at

Parking Update

Submitted by David Thomas, ICA B oard


Here’s an update on parking issues at present. As was reported

at the general meeting of the ICA, the City and the Calgary

Parking Authority (CPA) are proceeding with “angled parking”

pilot projects. These will be implemented on 11th St between 8th

Avenue and 11th Avenue (to where it joins 12th St). Additionally

there will be pilots on 13th Street and 14th Street, between 9th

and 8th Avenues. Some final details are still being worked out,

and these will soon be discussed with us.

We asked the CPA what the duration of the project will be, and

how it will be assessed, and have been told that “We’re thinking

that the duration of the project will be until the end of Q2 2017,

that should give us enough time to collect several seasons worth

of data to determine how the changes are working. With that

being said, if there’s something that clearly isn’t working we’re

not hesitant to remove it right away. We won’t need to wait until

the end of the project to remove anything that isn’t agreeable.”

Our CPA contact person also noted that they are “still ironing out

a few of the final details for assessment of the pilot, but we’ll

be looking at occupancy data and doing visual inspections of the

Mike Heltay


traffic and the parking throughout the period to determine the

impacts.” She also added, and this is important, that “As well

we’d really appreciate it if you keep the lines of communication

open with us and let us know how it is living with the changes

and what you’re hearing from residents.”

In terms of other parking issues, the future of the Rouge

parking lot is still being discussed within the larger context

of bridge and road construction. There have been concerns

expressed about the parking change process that led to the

changes on 10th by the Lantern Church, and we are trying to

makes sure that any future proposed changes are sent to the

ICA Board for information. This process is run by the City and

the residents who live on the affected street/avenue, but there

may be occasions when the Board can ask a key question, or

point out something that may have been overlooked, and it

simply will keep the Board up to date. The contact person at

the City who initiates and supervises parking rule changes of

this type is Minh Huynh (Minh.Huynh@Calgary.ca;). His office

handles requests for changes in the rules being applied and the

signage needed if things are changed.

Last but not least, we continue to be aware of the impact of

new buildings and the parking needs of their residents and

tenants on the community. LJ Robertson and her committee

are wrestling with this on a monthly basis, and we are trying

to ensure that we work closely with the City, the CPA, and the

BRZ, on a coordinated approach.

By Aditya Banerjee, IDI Chair, idi@icacalgary.com

The IDI met with City planners on March 1 to begin a dialogue

around a land use plan for the Inglewood/Ramsay Green Line

station. We brought up five main themes that the community

has identified as priorities to discuss in further depth:

Parks and open space, including recreation and natural areas.

Urban design and heritage preservation, to ensure new

development is sensitive to existing heritage structures.

A 9th Avenue urban design strategy and further information

on streetscaping, traffic and parking strategies.

Policy support, to help the IDI know about all of the policy

documents and tools available for planning.

Input into an amendment to the Area Redevelopment Plan

and the enforcement of planning standards.

We also discussed financial tools that may be used to

fund future growth and public improvements such as Tax

Increment Financing, Density Bonusing, and Off-site Levies.

These options are being currently reviewed by The City’s

growth strategies group for all established neighbourhoods

in Calgary.

The Green Line team recognizes that the community has been

“over-engaged” in recent years on a number of projects and

will look to test some of these ideas with the general public

at a future open house. A first draft of the station land use

plan will be completed by June, followed by an opportunity to

provide feedback before the final draft that will be completed

by December.

On other matters, the IDI conveyed our feedback on the

preliminary design of the 12th Street SE Bridge to the Mayor

and Councillors’ offices, along with our concerns about the

omission of design and commemorative recommendations

the community voiced through The City’s consultation

Turning a Goal into a New


by Geoff Starling , Geoff@GrizzlyPT.com

The concept of exercise serving as an effective method to

treat a wide variety of medical conditions is not a new one.

For decades studies have linked regular physical activity to

improvements in heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes.

Regular activity can also reduce the risk of falling, prevent

injury, speed recovery time after surgery and heighten

immune function. We all know that we should be more

active but unfortunately, that’s typically not enough to make

it happen. The missing component is often the ‘how’ more

so than the ‘why’, especially when you are dealing with

injuries or chronic disease.

If you ask your family doctor for advice they might deliver you

a copy of the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines. The body

behind these guidelines, the Canadian Society for Exercise

Physiology, has recently updated their forms from a single

poster to a broader guidebook (www.csep.ca/en/guidelines)

which provides examples of appropriate activities for a

variety of age groups. The Alberta Primary Care Network

has also created Prescription To Get Active which can be

issued by any physician associated with the network (www.

calgaryareadocs.com). This slip provides access to most City

of Calgary recreational facilities and an increasing number

of other gyms around the city where eager staff are ready to

get you on your way to greater health.

Other resources for exercise advice include physiotherapists,

personal trainers and other qualified fitness professionals.

As with finding a family doctor who you trust with your

life, finding a trainer who you are confident will lead you

to better health can take some research. Quiz your social

network for recommendations then contact the facilities

close to your home and workplace, or the ones that lay

along your commute between the two. Most should offer an

initial consultation without any charge where you can get a

feel for their personality and approach before you commit to

any kind of ongoing relationship.

The health benefits of engaging in regular physical activity

are undeniable. Investing some time putting together a

team of qualified professionals and sound advice to guide

you through the process can lead to even greater success.

Find what works for you and stick at it, the results will soon

Gian-Carlo Carra, Ward 9 Alderman

If you’ve heard me speak you’ve heard my ‘Great

Neighbourhoods’ platform, the five-point plan that guides the

work I do at City Hall and in our communities every day:

1. Transforming Planning to increase vibrancy in our

3. Transforming City Hall to make The City more

responsive to neighbourhood needs

4. Taking Control of our Future by establishing a Big City


5. Building a City That Pays for Itself

With the change in our City’s economy, my efforts have been

more heavily weighted towards lessening the blow for our

citizens by working to build a city that pays for itself. I have

long advocated that connecting revenue with expenses and

transforming taxation are essential. Here’s an update on some

of what I am working on, and what I have supported within the

last six months:

Supporting and voting for the Off-Site building levy. This

important vote affects future and current Calgarians, as

taxpayers will now recoup 100% of the cost to build new

communities - no longer subsidizing developers.

Supporting the 2016 budget adjustments. This lowered taxes

and provided more funding for infrastructure projects, putting

people to work and stimulating our local economy.

Diversifying our economy and supporting established and new

businesses. I am working to remove provincial and municipal

red tape, encouraging an environment that will create jobs

through commercial and residential development, and within

the service sector. I am doing this through Notice of Motions

regarding the Airport Vicinity Protection Area, commercial and

residential development along the LRT Red Line and Green Line,

and introducing zoning changes to increase opportunities for

businesses that deliver, or choose to deliver, child care services.

Reviewing the property tax assessment process. I’ve heard

primarily from flood-affected homeowners on the Elbow River

about their repeated successful appeals to the Assessment

Review Board since the 2013 flood. I am working to ensure

that the assessment process is fair and uses the best methods

to meet provincial law, while reflecting the realities faced by

property owners.

Through your calls, emails, tweets, and attendance at community

events, your voices are being heard, and I promise to keep acting

on them. Please continue to connect with me and share your

ideas on how we can emerge from this downturn even stronger.

Yours truly,

City of Calgary: Project updates - 12 Street SE Bridge replacement and Zoo Flood Mitigation

Zoo Road and pathway closures starting March 7, 2016

In order to begin construction on the Zoo Flood Mitigation Project

and the 12 Street S.E. Bridge replacement project, Zoo Road will

be closed from the west parking lot opposite the Zoo’s south

entrance to the Baines Bridge. Please see the Zoo Flood Mitigation

Project web page at calgary.ca/zoofloodproject for information on

Zoo Road and pathway closures and detour routes. Zoo Road and

pathway closures will continue until late 2017.

The 12 Street S.E. Bridge will remain open to the Zoo’s

Administration Building during construction. Please see calgary.

ca/12stbridge for updates on the 12 Street S.E. Bridge Replacement


Pathways on the north and south side of the river will be closed

during construction of the bridge and the Zoo Flood Mitigation

Project. The primary intention of the pathway closures is to

maintain safety for everyone. There will be construction in the

areas of the closures and large equipment moving in and around

these spaces.

The City also needs to make sure that any impacted pathways

have appropriate detour routes in accordance with City policy and

procedures. The City’s procedure is to detour existing pedestrians

along an adjacent sidewalk and an alternate road for cyclists. The

City cannot detour pathway users along a back lane or across

grass. Pathways are multi-use facilities and the detours must be

appropriate and safe for everyone to use.

Tree Removals - north and south side of river

On the south side of the Bow River and on St. George’s Island,

trees have been removed from City land in order to construct

the bridge in its new alignment and to install the Zoo flood


The City has minimized the number of tree removals. The

Inglewood Community Association also provided input to

further reduce the number of trees to be removed.

As is the case in all tree removal situations on City land, the

project is required to provide compensation for any trees


A dollar value is placed on the removed trees and this amount is

allocated to tree planting in the city. Trees may not be replaced

in the exact same location because the bridge and other

infrastructure will be occupying that space. Tree re-planting is

part of the landscape planning for implementation after the

bridge is complete.

There is also an extensive restoration plan for St. George’s Island,

which will be implemented when both projects are complete.

The City of Calgary is taking cuttings from the poplars removed

during reconstruction and will re-plant them.

The removed trees will be used in flood recovery projects, such

as for fish habitat and for projects in City parks.

Heritage Committee Update: So Long

to the St. George’s Island Bridge

By Manfred Baum

All the recent activity around the St, George’s Island Bridge (also

called the 12th St or Zoo Bridge) is bringing the stark reality that

our beloved historic bridge will soon be removed and replaced by

a modernistic one.

The bridge’s history is intertwined with three islands in the Bow

River (St. George’s, St. Andrew’s and St. Patrick’s), and Inglewood.

Between 1888 and 1895, the islands were leased to the City by

the federal government. Various attempts were made to connect

them to land by boat or ferry without much success. In 1895, on

the suggestion of William Pearce, the islands were donated to

the City for park use on a condition. The condition was to build

a bridge to connect the islands to land. This condition was met in

1908 when the St. George’s Island Bridge was completed.

The bridge is a Parker Camelback through-truss bridge which is

one of four in the City. The steel apparently came from an easternbased

Canadian company, Algoma Steel Bridge Company. In fact,

the Algoma sign was on the bridge until recently. However, new

research has discovered that some of the steel may have come

from an American company. The bridge is a single truss. Similar to

the current bridge, there was a long approach but it was primarily

made of wood. Looking at the Bow River now, one wonders

why the bridge was a single truss with a very long approach. The

simple reason was that the single truss covered the water at the

time. Land covered the area from the bank to the steel bridge.

With the development of the bridge, the islands became a popular

leisure site. One of the first major structures on St. George’s

Island was a bandstand from 1912-1949. A collection of animals

started to be kept on the island resulting in the Calgary Zoological

Society in 1929 bringing even more people over the bridge.

Changes were done over time to make the bridge better for

the increased traffic and age. In 1972/1973, the Bow River was

widened on the south bank for flood mitigation. This resulted in

the current concrete approach. About a decade ago, the bridge

was upgraded for the last time. After the 2013 flood, the historic

bridge was deemed unsafe and the City decided that it along

with the Ninth Avenue Bridge should be replaced.

The bridge will remain open for local island traffic for some of

the time while the new one is being built. By the end of December

next year, the new bridge will be open and the old one

will be removed. Sadly, none of the historic elements of the old

bridge will be added to the new one, either real or faux. There is

a continuing discussion between the community and the City on

these concerns. Hopefully, some elements will be added and the

new bridge will have a great gateway into Inglewood. I will definitely

miss the old bridge that I walked across for many years.
