Request to reconsider minimum property tax of $500

A letter urging council to reconsider

the minimum municipal tax of $500

was denied at the regular Coronation

Town Council meeting on Mon. Aug.


Leanne Watson of Stavely, Ab.,

owner of farm property that falls on

the east side of Albert St. from

Imperial Ave. to York Ave., wrote in

her request to council, “Certainly this

would seem, for lack of a better term, a

‘money grab’ as all of the properties

that are close to or above the minimum

$500 would not be affected.”

Watson’s taxes have increased from

$41.75 to $507.49.

“We did this for a reason,” stated

Coun. Vickey Horkoff. Council unanimously

denied the request.

Riding Arena proposal

Council learned that the proposal by

Darin Eno at a previous council

meeting to construct an enclosed

riding arena at the Coronation Rodeo

Grounds that could potentially be used

for the Bull-a-Rama, riding practice

and competitions, 4-H shows and sales

has the agreement by the Coronation

Ag Society that they will be the managing

partner for the construction of

this facility as well as management

upon its completion.

Council agreed to issue a letter of

support and consent as the Ag Society

will be applying for grants.

Dirt stockpile

Council was asked by administration

to consider future use for the old

BMX track area as a green space/recreation

area for public use and

enjoyment, as well as an area for overflow

camping for ball tournaments in

conjunction with Communities in

Coronation Town Council

Bloom (CiB) plans for an edible


Currently campers are permitted to

park along the northwest corner of

Ball Diamond #4 for tournaments and

pay $20 per night for unserviced

camping fees.

It was agreed to ask the Ag Society to

find an alternate site to store the dirt

stockpiled for the Bull-a-Rama from

year to year so the town could plant

grass, provide picnic tables and garbage

receptacles for this area.

“That means more work for the town

staff,” noted Coun. Shelley Cook.

Lifejacket Loaner Stations

Council received information

regarding a $1,000 grant approval for

the construction of a Lifejacket Loaner

Station in Coronation from Cabela’s

Canada Outdoor Fund to build the station.

The initial supply of lifejackets of

varying sizes will be supplied by

Cabela’s Canada.

The Lifesaving Society will also provide

banners, posters and ‘water

smart’ education materials for the


Sheri Wuzinski proposes that lifejacket

kiosks be developed at both the

Coronation Pool and the Coronation

Dam to ensure that there is sufficient

access to this valuable lifesaving

resource at both public use waterbased

recreation areas.

Council accepted the material for

information and administration will

look into actual costs for construction

of the two kiosks.

Bylaw report

Bylaw Officer Sheri Wuzinski

reported on July activities including

one fine for a trailer unlawfully parked

on the street. Her report also included

three other trailers parked unlawfully

on the street, seven unsightly properties,

four derelict vehicles and three

dog calls.

PEPS donation

Council unanimously passed the

resolution for the Paintearth Regional

Waste Management Ltd. (PRWM) corporation

to provide the annual funding

grant of $100,000 to the Paintearth

Economic Partnership Society (PEPS)

for their operating budget.

Camp kitchen

Council approved clarification on

the partial and full day rates for the

campground kitchen. A partial day is

now defined to be four hours or less

and a full day, more than four hours.

Transitional progress report

Urban Systems, hired to work with

Battle River Economic Opportunites

Committee (BREOC) provided a

written report to council that included

information regarding the two

Economic Transition Centres being set

up to open Oct. 1 tentatively.

One is to be located in the old

Paintearth Gas Co-op building on

main street, Castor and the second

office is on the second floor in the provincial

building in Forestburg with

ongoing renovations to both locations

proceeding. A wheel chair lift will be

necessary for access to the Forestburg

office at a cost of $30,000 to $40,000.

Each centre will have one manager

and one assistant with the positions

lasting 18 months.

Budget shortfall of $145,685 is being

addressed by members of BREOC who

are involved seeking additional

funding as the initial Coal Community

Transition Fund (CCTF) application

for an additional $700,000 was not

approved by the government.

Members include the municipalities

of the counties of Paintearth and

Flagstaff, and communities of

Forestburg, Heisler, Halkirk, Castor

and Coronation.

Canadian Badlands Tourism

Coronation council will apply to

host a one-day session for Canadian

Badlands Tourism guest speaker,

Roger Brooks.

The town will be required to provide

a meeting room for 150 people,

morning coffee/tea and lunch and

marketing the event.

Brooks is a tourism destination

development expert hired by Canadian

Badlands Tourism for a learning tour

in four communities across the region.

Land Use bylaw

Council passed third and final

reading of the Land Use bylaw to

include provisions to allow placement

of fabric covered buildings and C-Can

storage units in residential and commercial

districts. Currently they are

only permitted in Industrial districts.


In the cheque listing for approval by

council, it was noted that the town

paid $126,126. prepayment to

Horseshoe Paving for the Community

Centre parking lot paving which the

Community Hall Board has already

reimbursed in full to the town.

Other expenses included lighting for

$27,405 and new flooring upstairs in

the arena for $21,265; and flooring in

the Lion’s Rec Centre for $9,347.

County of Paintearth

Development Plan enters final draft stage

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

The County of Paintearth held an

open house on a new agreement

required by Alberta Municipal Affairs

on Tues. Aug. 14 in the hopes of

receiving feedback about this new

partnership between the County of

Paintearth and the M.D. of Provost.

As of April 1, the Municipal

Government Act (MGA) has mandated

the development and implementation

of an Intermunicipal Development

Plan (IDP) between councils of municipalities

and or villages or towns with

common boundaries.

These IDP’s are meant to create a

standard for communication and decision

making between the two entities.

Regulations are also put in place in

case of disputes or disagreements.

“The benefits will always be

increased communication and information

sharing between two

neighbours. I can’t really see too much

drawbacks from them unless its from

a contentious project and that is going

to be project by project basis anyway.”

Todd Pawsey, County of Paintearth

Development Officer, gave an overview

on how the plan will work once in


Both Counties consider the relationship

in good standing but will allow

for increased communication especially

along the fringe area they share.

“The government a couple years ago

in updating the MGA basically decided

that any municipality that borders

another one has to have these agreements

in place.

“I think in their mind and their

thinking it was mostly designed from

the rural planning around urban

municipalities and they may or may

not have considered the impact of

rural to rural because we have so

many rural to rural borders.

“There is never that much contention

in rural to rural that there used to

be historically between urban to


The fringe area refers to the area

within a mile of the shared border

which means a two mile strip in the

north east stretches approximately 20

miles in length.

Notification letters were sent to

residents and businesses in this fringe

area but only one phone call was


“I can’t see it affecting anybody

because we are not changing as our

land uses are the same,” explained


The M.D of Provost will be holding

their open house next week to discuss

the same draft.

Once that is complete and opinions

are accepted, if any, the document will

be formalized as a bylaw which will

follow normal proceedings.

First reading may come as early as

the end of September.

Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (SDAB) member Blake Chapman, left, prepares some notes while Craig

Community Hall. The next hearing will be held on Tues. Sept. 18.

High attendance at

Paradise Shores hearing

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Over 120 people were in attendance

to witness the continuation of the

Subdivision and Development Appeal

Board (SDAB) meeting involving the

Paradise Shores development on

Buffalo Lake.

The proposed project, a 750 lot RV

resort on the south banks of Buffalo

Lake, has caused major waves in communities

residing nearby.

The SDAB meeting was held in the

Stettler Community Hall on Thurs.

Aug. 16., to go over any procedural

problems and determine future plans.

Eight appellants submitted applications

against the project and one was

received from the developer in favour

of it.

The meeting was chaired by Craig

Teal. Teal, Greggory Jackson and

Blake Chapman made up the appeal

board. An appointed lawyer as well as

Yvette Cassidy filled in as the SDAB


Next door neighbours Rochon Sands

Heights Community Association spoke

up the most during the meeting.

The party was concerned with collusion

involving the Paradise Shores

developer Rick Halpern and Stettler

County’s developer Johan Van


FOIP documents were seized for the

1000 page report outlining each conversation

that may have been

pertinent to this concern.

Developers have the right to make

contact through text or other forms of

communication but interactions must

remain professional, not social in

nature according to Municipal

Government Act (MGA) which was

highlighted in the community association’s

appeal submission.

The texts recovered said things like

“Thank you for lunch. Great to meet

your family. The food was great. I just

sent over that drawing. Have a great

evening.” and “This will all still be

here on Monday morning.

Please go enjoy your family

for the weekend. Have a

great weekend. That’s as a

friend not a developer.”

The SDAB members were

also prior Stettler County

council members.

“Do any of the board

members feel that the previous

professional or

personal relations with the

development authority of the

County of Stettler influence

your ability to provide a fair

and unbiased hearing?”

asked Julie Ruttan, Rochon

Sands Community

Association representative.

The board decided that

these interactions and past

connections were not

enough to change board

members and ruled that

they were ‘satisfied that

they do not have a bias’

ECA Review

As white nationalism and anti-

Semitic acts of violence rise worldwide,

on a recent European trip, I was interested

to hear and feel local sentiments.

Stops included the heart and soul of

Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany—

Nuremberg and Munich.

Tour guides in Germany did not

fudge the facts about Nazi Germany

nor justify the complacency of their

ancestors towards Hitler.

Seems in the early 1970s, the government

became concerned that their

younger generations were forgetting

the frightful history of six million

Jews exterminated by Germans. To

stop the growing ignorance, a visit by

all 15 year-old students to a concentration

camp became mandatory.

As one interpretative guide

explained, there were three reasons

why the Jews were persecuted in

Germany. First, even as early as the

1100s, evidence was uncovered

showing the church historically persecuted

Jews for not accepting the


Second, Adolf Hitler hated Jews and

they were his perfect scape goat to

dehumanize and solidify fear and

hatred towards a common enemy.

And lastly, the Jews were persecuted

because of envy.

After World War I, anyone who

wanted to join a guild had to swear on

the Bible, which a practicing Jew

would never have done. At the same

time, Bible-believing Christians

understood it to be wrong to loan

money with interest or go into debt.

Without an opportunity to take up a

trade, industrious Jews started banks

and used debt to fund new mercantile

activities, getting rich in the process.

Austrian interpretative guides mentioned

its country’s torrid past with

Nana’s Blog

Hitler, but the passion and fervour

shown by German interpreters didn’t

seem as evident. In fact, Austria has

elected a far-right wing government

and its first action was to close the

border to refugees.

At the wedding of Austria’s Foreign

Affairs Minister’s daughter, invited

guest President Vladimir Putin of

Russia seemed to have a very warm

and cozy relationship with this highranking

Austrian politician.

Austria was a willing subject to

Adolf Hitler during World War II and

Austria’s flirting with Russia and their

ardent stance against refugees leads

one to ponder their memories of


Hungary is doing their race-purity

policy by refusing refugees and

enacting strong anti-immigration

laws. They offer married couples who

commit to having three children in 10

years, a 32,000 euro cheque to purchase

a home.

Hungarians average income per

year is 800 euro. The hope behind the

three-child policy—one replaces mom,

one replaces dad and one grows the

population and expands the economy

without immigration.

Attacks against Jews and other religious

minorities are on the rise

throughout Western countries, and

that includes Germany and Canada.

One German interpreter told a

recent story where thousands of Nazi

followers gathered for a rally in the

centre square of Bamberg. It was

thwarted when the local Priest rang

the church bells for hours making it

impossible for speakers to be heard.

Ironically, the Priest was charged

and found guilty under German law of

obstructing freedom of speech, but

who said democracies weren’t messy.

But, alas, the future can be more

than messy when we forget the past.

Pickle recipe lives for

another generation

by Lois Perepelitz

On one of the hottest days of the year

I was chopping up four litres of yellow

beans to make pickles. My place has

some nice shade trees so it usually

stays cool during the day, but by the

time I had the beans cooking and the

brine boiling it was getting very warm

in here.

It made me wonder how they did it in

the old days.

With all the heat we have been

having I have been watching the

weather reports to see if we have been

breaking any records.

I was surprised to see that we did not

break very many at all. I noticed that

most of the records were set in the

1930’s .

In the 1930’s the women would have

been cooking on the good ole wood

stove. They would have needed to get

that fire going pretty hot to get things

boiling on the top of that stove.

Having that kind of heat in a room

on a plus 30 Celsius day must have

been horrible.

The women of that time would not

just be making one or two small

batches of their favourite pickles, they

would have been canning the winter

supply of veggies and fruits.

Rights should be sacred

with cannabis laws

Dear Editor,

Cannabis becomes legal in Canada

in October, and it continues, to be a

contentious issue. Presently municipalities

are amending their bylaws to

comply with the legislation.

Under the Alberta Gaming and

Liquor Act, citizens of a municipality

may, by plebiscite, opt out of retail

liquor sales. The citizens of Cardston,

Ab. following a plebiscite, have not had

retail liquor sales, for many years.

Unfortunately, our provincially

elected officials in Alberta, in enacting

the Alberta Cannabis Act, did not

include a similar opting out clause, as

did the provinces of Saskatchewan and


Perhaps our Alberta government,

does not respect the rights of

Albertans to make that decision on

their own ?

Albertans, through a democratic

vote, in a plebiscite under proper election

rules, should be able to decide

whether they may opt out of cannabis

retail sales.

I believe the non- inclusion of this

clause is a direct infringement of citizens’

rights under Section 7 of the

Charter Rights and Freedoms.

Section 7, which states “Everyone

has the right to life, liberty and security

of the person and the right not to

be deprived thereof except in accordance

with the principles of

fundamental justice” was specifically

JoYCe Webster


BoNNY WilliAMs

Circulation Manager

included in the Charter so the rights of

citizens, be protected and not trampled,

by Governments.

Citizens of a municipality should

have the right to decide whether to opt

out. I question whether the Alberta

Government is forcing an agenda upon

their citizens, and removing Albertans

democratic right to decide.

Is the Government of Alberta, in

pushing the cannabis agenda and not

including an opting out clause, hoping

municipalities for financial reasons

and a possible long battle in the

courts, hoping they will simple opt out

of the fight for their democratic rights?

On August 15, the Village of Alix

council voted unanimously to have a

public vote under proper election rules

on the cannabis issue, so our citizens

may have the democratic right to

decide if they want a retail cannabis

store in their community.

The citizens of Alix, both pro and

con, on this issue, are being afforded

the right to decide and not have the federal

and provincial governments,

make the decision for them.

I urge all Albertans to contact their

members of the Legislative Assembly

and members of Parliament and make

their feelings known.

Do not allow, your democratic right

to be infringed by the federal and provincial

ECA Review

Castor’s own Tiara van Zandbergen

has made a big indent in the world of

music these past few months.

She and 10 others had their top

piano pieces chosen to be published in

a book titled ‘Fingerprints’ by the

editor of the Keyboard Camp in

Biggar, Saskatchewan.

Many from the camp requested

their work get in but were turned


The camp, which took place on

Wednesday, August 8 and Thursday,

August 9, offered students ages seven

to 21 the opportunity to develop their

skills through techniques and other

trained qualities.

It was made possible through the

Canadian National Conservatory of


At the camp, attendees were split up

amongst different age groups and skill

levels, each team with a leader who

was typically one of Canada’s top

piano composers.

“So they come and we all compose

like one big group song together and

then we performed it the very last

day,” said van Zandbergen.

Mini sessions were created so each

age group can interact with more composers

than just their assigned leader.

“We learn stuff like cording and

Days of cooking and canning

winter supplies in the heat

Cont’d from Pg 6

This would mean days of cooking

and canning in the heat.

Some farms would have a small

building beside the main house that

would have an extra stove in it and

that would be used as the summer


This would keep the house cool but

the women still had to cook in the

heat. Those veggies needed to be

canned and those berries needed to be

made into jam when they were ripe no

matter what the weather was.

It is easy to understand why women

were so willing to give up their canning

when the canned goods started to

be available in grocery stores.

I just feel sad that so many recipes

that had been passed down through

the generations are now getting lost

because no one is using them.

With air conditioning and modern

appliances heat is not the big problem

it was, now the problem is time and

not having enough of that.

I look at my small batch of yellow

bean mustard pickles and wonder if I

will be the last to use this recipe that

was handed down from my mother

since my daughter and granddaughters

do not seem interested in making

their own pickles.

A few days later I got a phone call

from my niece. She was just thinking

of me because she had just made a

batch of yellow bean mustard pickles

from my recipe.

The yellow bean mustard pickle

lives for another generation.

how to learn a pop song in like 10 minutes

and stuff like that,” she said.

Van Zandbergen’s piece titled “This

Is Just the Beginning” originally

began in November of last year.

“I realized like ‘Oh, I am going to

university next year and it’s a new

change in my life’ so it’s basically from

me now going into university and

starting what I want to do for the rest

of my life.”

Van Zandbergen had the special

honour of performing her song in front

of not only young musicians but some

of Canada’s top composers.

A mini recital was also held for

musicians that were featured in


The young composer began her love

for piano at a young age as she was

always curious to try but didn’t have

access to one for a long time.

Eventually, her step-father had a

piano at home so she was able to start

lessons which sparked major interest.

Two years ago, her piano instructor

told her about a camp that takes place

in Yorkton, Saskatchewan.

“After that camp meeting a bunch

more Canadian composers, I decided I

was going to write a song so I did that

but it didn’t get published. I ended up

going to provincials with it,” she said.

The camp rotates as to where it will

be so last year it was in Ontario before

coming back to Western Canada.

“I went to the camp this year and it

just turned out that my second composition

that I wrote got into the book,”

explained van Zandbergen.

A composer she met at another

camp was the main reason behind her

inspiration to keep writing music.

“My favourite part would probably

being able to meet actual composers of

people who I performed songs at the

music festivals and it was just really

nice seeing them and how they teach

and like to compose. It was a lot of


She attributes her success to support

and inspirational backing from family

and her piano teacher.

The 18-year-old just graduated highschool

and hopes to pursue a 5-year

Bachelor of Science Combined

Education Degree at the University of

Lethbridge which she will use to

become a university professor.

Alix Council

Ballot vote over cannabis retail sales

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Council has already made an

amendment to the Land Use Bylaw

which adds definitions relating to


The next step they must determine is

what types of regulations council

wants to put in place.

After much talk around the table,

council agreed to let the people have a

chance to voice their concerns or support

in a constructive and civil

manner by holding a referendum by

ballot regarding retail sales of the

plant based drug.

Both sides of the argument were

concerned about ridicule from the

other so this option of a referendum

was a reasonable way to express their

opinion without being concerned for


“Like I said, I have talked to people

on both sides and the only thing that

was in agreement was ‘We want a referendum,

we want to be able to vote on

this’,” said Coun. Ed Cole.

The results of this ballot will be used

to give council an indication as to what

direction they should lean towards

when deciding on cannabis regulations

within the village and what level

of compliance they wish to follow with

upcoming legalization on October 17.

Residents that wish to have a voice

will ‘vote on a question by ballot under

proper election rules on a question of

cannabis retail sales in our community’

as the motion outlined.

“I just like the idea, that for me

anyway, that the people can at least say

they had a voice in it and it’s not your

garden variety type of bylaw – this is a

hot button issue that people are very

passionate about on both sides,” said

Mayor Rob Fehr.

No date has been set for the vote at

press time.

ATCO Franchise Agreement

What many refer to as a ‘hidden tax

grab’, Alix’s Franchise Fee Agreement

with ATCO has come to council for

decision making.

ATCO’s franchise fee for Alix is

solely based on natural gas use and

associated delivery rates for the


Two rate changes were made earlier

this year in March and April which in

turn decreased the overall delivery

rates that the community is paying for.

The ATCO Gas franchise fee is currently

at 20 per cent and property taxes

are included in the amount collected.

They must be taken out of the payments

prior to the property tax due


Council had the option to continue to

collect franchise fees and property

taxes or to collect property taxes separate

from franchise fees.

Administration recommended the

latter option as it provides residents

with a more transparent look at their

electric bill as many may not be aware

that approximately 4.5 per cent of the

franchise fee amount on their bill goes

toward ATCO’s annual tax bill payable

to the village.

Council tabled the agreement to

budget time deliberations as it is not a

pressing issue for administration to

tackle. A full review of these percentages

will be conducted to make an

informed decision.

Land Use Bylaw Amendment

Alix council allowed for a public

hearing on Wed. Aug. 15 prior to the

regular council meeting to discuss

amendments to proposed Land Use

Bylaw 435/18.

The changes to this bylaw were put

in motion by recent changes to the

Municipal Government Act (MGA) and

primarily dealt with how a development

permit is handled and what

timeframes are set for processing such


Other changes were made to the subdivision

application process again to

handle timeframes and processing.

Any time there is an amendment to a

land use bylaw, the MGA requires a

public hearing.

In the end, no written or verbal submissions

were received.

Council later passed second and

third readings of the bylaw during the

regular council meeting.

Alix Rodeo entered its fourth year on Aug. 18 - 19. Different age groups were categorized

for some events. Bull Riding, Team Roping, Bareback, Saddle Bronc, Barrel Racing and

Junior Steer Riding were on the list of competitions but Ladies Cow Riding became a big

hit with the crowd overall. Katy Praught of Stony Plain makes a hard landing after her cow

ride. She had no score as she did not surpass eight seconds. ECA Review/T.Huxley

Ottawa’s contradictory climate

policy just wastes money

Billions of dollars in spending announcements allow politicians to burnish their green credentials.

But they don’t get the job done.

Troy Media

by Matthew Lau, Contributor

“Around the world, businesses, governments

and experts agree that

carbon pricing is the cheapest and

most efficient way to cut carbon pollution,”

Catherine McKenna, Canada’s

environment and climate change minister,

recently tweeted.

If what she says is true, it means all

other anti-carbon strategies - including

regulations and subsidies - are unnecessarily

expensive and inefficient.

Yet just a few months earlier, when

McKenna announced $100 million in

green subsidies to Ontario households

and businesses, she said that the

spending “pays for itself by saving

money, reducing carbon pollution and

making our homes and businesses

more comfortable and affordable.”

Has her position changed or does she

still believe Ottawa’s subsidy programs

and corporate welfare remain an efficient

use of tax dollars that will

somehow pay for itself?

McKenna’s $100 million supported

the previous Ontario government’s climate

spending program.

However, the evidence shows us that

the billions the Ontario Liberals had

slated for climate spending was a massive


A recent essay by University of

Calgary economist Trevor Tombe estimated

that money spent to “improve

energy efficiency in multi-tenant residential

buildings” was 29 times more

expensive, per tonne of emissions

reduced, than cap and trade.

And “support to household adoption

of low-carbon technology” was about

15 times more expensive.

It turns out that just as the budget

doesn’t balance itself, the government’s

green spending doesn’t pay for

itself either.

While Conservative Premier Doug

Ford is sensibly axing Ontario’s climate-spending

fund in an effort to

drag public finances back in the right

direction, the federal Liberal government

is forging ahead with handouts

to rent-seekers.

In just the past few months, federal

taxpayer dollars have been torched on

everything from corporate welfare for

farms in P.E.I., to enlarging the

Alberta Indigenous Solar Program, to

homeowners’ windows in New

Brunswick, to making Ontario’s postsecondary

campuses more energy


Why does the federal government

continue to waste billions of dollars of

your money this way when - by

McKenna’s admission - experts agree

that a carbon tax is preferable?

The answer lies in what Liberals

view to be a problematic feature of a

carbon tax as compared to a government

command-and-control climate


Economists prefer taxation over

subsidies and regulations because a

carbon tax, for example pegged at $20

per tonne, gives people incentive to

reduce emissions when, and only

when, the cost of doing so is below $20

per tonne.

This means the private market has

the flexibility to find the cheapest

ways to reduce emissions, rather than

have the government decide.

But allowing more flexibility for the

private sector isn’t something Liberal

politicians can go along with.

If households and businesses are

allowed to make decisions for themselves,

the collective wisdom and

brilliance of those politicians goes


That’s why a heavy government

spend-and-regulate regime is in place.

Just as importantly, billions of dollars

in spending announcements

allow politicians to hold press conferences

to burnish their green

credentials and repeat tired slogans

about how government spending

improves both the economy and the


Such slogans ignore that the fastest

increases in prosperity and cleanliness

in human history were supported

by private industry, not corporate welfare

and green subsidies.

The federal Liberals remain big

supporters of the carbon tax, of

course. But that has nothing to do

with taxes being cheaper and more

efficient than regulations and


They just like the carbon tax

because it’s a tax. And they will find

ways to spend it even if the policy evidence

says it’s a costly mistake.
