To save it or to shave it…that is the question

Submitted

Teddy Brinkman, alumni and

former kindergarten teacher at Delia

School, has offered up his luscious

locks as the latest fundraiser for the

Delia School Enhancement Society.

Brinkman, who is currently

teaching grades 5 & 6 in Cessford, Ab.,

is excited to be back at his old

stomping grounds in Delia on April 6

as a part of the entertainment lined up

for the DSES “Boots & Bow Ties Gala”.

In his spare time when he is not

busy working with his students in

Cessford, Brinkman rocks the bass

and keys as a part of the “Suit Jacket

Society”, a band he formed with his

classmates while attending school in

Delia.

In support of the new Delia School

and Community Hub project, Teddy

has offered up all 30 inches of his hair

to the highest bidder.

DELIA SCHOOL

“I would not offer to cut my hair normally,

but in a case like this it is for a

great cause,” said Brinkman.

“Having the lusciously perfect hair I

do, it is a responsibility to show it off

and make people envious. Now it is

time to commit to a good cause and

help support the building of the new

school and community building in

Delia. The destiny of my hair is now in

the hands of the people who I am sure,

deep down, do not want to see it go, I

hope.”

For the #SaveIt vs. #ShaveIt fundraiser,

the team that raises the most

money as of April 6 will decide the fate

of Teddy’s famous hair.

If Team #ShaveIt raises the most

money, every $250 raised will mean

five inches of hair being cut, with a full

shave coming to $10,000.

The results will be announced the

night of the Gala, April 6 and will be

live streamed on the DSES Facebook

page.

DSES is ready to go for the Gala fundraiser

“Boots & Bow Ties”.

Featuring the Elton Lammie Band

and home-grown talent the Suit Jacket

Society, the DSES Gala team is excited

about what is looking like an amazing

night.

With only a few tickets still available

for the evening, this event is expected

to raise over $30,000 towards the new

Delia Community Hub project.

More information will be posted to

the DSES Facebook site ahead of the

Gala, but bidding will only be available

to those at the Gala.

To see the latest news and to find out

more about the Boots & Bow Ties Gala

the night, check out the DSES

Reflecting on two decades

Cont’d from Pg 1

Reflecting on his nearly two decades

in public office, Sorenson stressed the

importance of his Christian faith

saying, “Politicians are pulled in all

different directions, but my faith, and

the hope that it offers, has been at the

heart of staying principled, serving

with respect and working hard every

day.”

Sorenson also reflected on his first

speech in the House of Commons,

made on February 1, 2001, saying the

sentiments expressed on that surreal

day so long ago, still hold true today.

“Mr. Speaker, I rise today with

honour and a great sense of pride in

representing – in this magnificent

House – the people of Crowfoot. It is a

privilege to stand here today and

address the members of this House in

my maiden speech. Mr. Speaker, may I

begin by sincerely thanking the

numerous volunteers who selflessly

and diligently assisted with my campaign.

It was, undoubtedly, the

collective effort of all those involved

that resulted in my victory and a victory

for the Canadian Alliance in a

very difficult and in some respects

emotional campaign in Crowfoot. I

would like to thank God for allowing

me the privilege of serving the people

of Crowfoot and Him – here in

Parliament. I would also like to pay

special tribute to my family, my parents

and in-laws.

“To my wife Darlene and our children,

Kristen and Ryan, who are here

with me today – as they are everyday –

thank you – I would not be standing in

this honourable House if it was not for

your love and support!

“And, finally Mr. Speaker, to all the

Kevin Sorenson

people of Crowfoot – thank you for

bestowing your faith in me. I promise

to respectfully and truthfully represent

your views and concerns here in

Ottawa. And, I pledge to work hard

with the same diligence as the

majority of you demonstrate daily in

your careers and occupations in our

predominantly rural riding.”

Sorenson thanked and commended

his former and current staff for their

outstanding work and support in running

his Ottawa and Camrose offices.

“Without them I could not have provided

the first-class assistance my

constituents deserve.”

He thanked former Prime Minister,

Stephen Harper, “for the faith he had

in me to be Minister of State for

Finance. A position I served with

honour and to the best of my ability.”

Most importantly, he stated, “Words

are just not enough to express the deep

appreciation and love I have for my

wife and family. Darlene, my partner,

my sounding board, and the one who

has supported and loved me through

this journey, I couldn’t have done it

without her.”

Sorenson concluded by saying that

while he may not be running again, he

absolutely believes “The winds of

change are blowing in Canada and

that Andrew Scheer will be our

nation’s next Prime Minister.”

He also pledged to do everything he

can to make the case to Canadians

that we need to elect a strong Andrew

Scheer led Conservative Government

in the upcoming Fall Election.

Ray Reckseidler

ECA Review

Village of Delburne councillors

learned from the provincial government

that the equalized assessment

rate for residential property has

dropped 0.11 per cent from the previous

fiscal year at their regular

council meeting on Marh 26, 2019.

The assessment rate for commercial

property has increased 9.9 per cent.

Administration reported that given

these rates, the estimated total tax revenue

would be $964,975.

Chief Administrative Officer CAO)

Karen Fegan indicated this amount

would bring the village an additional

$24,000 over last year’s total revenue.

Council was also told that the tax

rates for the School Requisition levy

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB ApRIL 4'19 3


BIG VALLEY COUNCIL

Modular home request denied


Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Due to safety concerns and

maintaining a relatively cohesive

community, council chose

to turn down a request to allow

for modular homes that are

10-years-old and over within the

village.

A Big Valley resident recently

requested the land use bylaw be

amended to allow for these older

style modular homes to be

allowed.

At their council meeting held

on Thurs. March 28, council felt

that safety was the number one

concern as older homes are

more likely to cause problems

down the road.

A written complaint was also

received, warning of the dangers

of allowing an older home

into the village as it could possibly

‘open a pandora’s box if

allowed’.

Former Chief Administrative

Officer (CAO) Michelle White

spoke with a building inspector

to determine if there was any

significance between a 10-yearold

home and a 12 or 15-year-old

home.

The inspector indicated he

was not in favour of relaxing

the bylaw because of energy and

fire codes which change fairly

often.

By having a fixed age, a

municipality is ensuring the

unit is not excessively outdated

for compliance with all areas of

the safety code.

Neighbouring municipalities

are also within the eight to 10

New sergeant in town

Killarney Scheffield

ECA Review

Coronation town council had

their first official meet and

greet with new Sgt. Jason Smith

at their regular meeting held on

Mon. March 25.

Sgt. Smith came to

Coronation with extensive experience

in a number of areas,

serving in Drumheller,

Hobbema and Maythorpe

detachments.

He is also currently overseeing

the Consort detachment

until a replacement arrives in

May.

Sgt. Smith approached

council to hear any concerns

they might have and spoke

about his commitment to tackling

elderly fraud within the

community.

Council suggested more

RCMP presence in and around

the school and recreation facilities

would be an area of interest.

Coronation Library

The annual Coronation

library report was delivered by

Chelsey Peacock, the new manager

as of the end of July 2018.

The library has seen a growth

in membership by 92 card

holders since 2016, as well as a

63 per cent increase in library

use, 26 per cent website interaction

and 11 per cent increase in

year range.

“I’m not inclined to change

the bylaw,” said Mayor Sandra

Schell. “I’m inclined to leave it

as the 10 years due to safety

codes, due to the discussion

from the building spector with

what he has put forward, and

the fact that we are not that out

of line with any other municipality

in doing what we do.”

Pump Track Park

With youth engagement

at the forefront of the last

municipal election, council

has found a pump track

park to be an excellent way

of achieving these requests

from youth in the area.

A pump track park is a

circuit of hills and banked

turns which can be used by

a wide variety of skill

levels.

It was originally created by

the professional biker scene but

these parks are known to be

cheaper than average and are

wheel chair, skateboard and

scooter accessible.

CAO Priscilla Brown asked

council how they wanted to

pursue this potential idea as

more clarification on direction

was needed.

Council felt it was important

that an outside group take the

lead on the project but would

support by way of finances,

grant help and possibly materials

and work.

Having a group that is not

attached to the village was said

to be beneficial as there are

grants the village can not apply

CORONATION COUNCIL

library materials accessed.

An addition of 32 more programs

in 2018, such as the

mobile library, summer reading

program, crafts and movie

nights has been well received by

the public.

Fundraising saw an additional

$3,606 and donations

made $5,681 available for program

use and development.

As well, 634 new books and

materials were purchased with

a focus on tween and teen

interaction.

Chief Administrative Officer

(CAO) Sandra Kulyk reviewed

the 2018/2019 library budget and

found all to be in order.

Coun. Jackie Brigley brought

up some concerns regarding the

community standards bylaws

for Coronation.

One of the issues being discussed

is the allotment of two

derelict vehicle enforcement

issues.

Keeping the town clean and

preserving land values is an

ongoing concern and more discussion

is expected to be

brought back up at the next

meeting to address the matter.

Free system

George Glazier attended the

council meeting to make a presentation

on the Alberta

Tourism Information System

(ATIS) to encourage more use of

for but another organization

can.

“The government wants more

collaboration for even getting

your grant,” said Deputy Mayor

Harry Nibourg. “So in order to

get your grant, you’ve got to

show that you are collaborating

with other entities just to make

it more viable.


The cost to construct

a park like this has a

potential price tag

between $125,000

and $150,000.

“They don’t want to be giving

individual grants to everybody.

They would rather give more to

a bigger group,” he concluded.

Council agreed that the partnership

should entail their

contributions of finding the

land and maintenance on top of

the previously mentioned duties

but the fundraising itself would

fall under the other organization

or multiple organizations.

The cost to construct a park

like this has a potential price

tag between $125,000 and

$150,000.

Under the direction of

council, village staff will

approach a number of local

groups with this idea of fundraising

and how the village

the system as it is free and

would benefit the town’s

tourism sector.

It was discussed that more

events rather than just the

rodeo and fair should be added

on a regular basis to help make

tourists and other communities

aware of what is happening in

Coronation year round,

including the library programs

and other local events.

Aerial photo

A new aerial photo showcasing

town growth was

discussed as the last one was

completed in 2013. Council

decided to wait until 2020 for a

new image.

Summer labor was also on

the agenda, specifically the

need for a third position.

The Summer Temporary

Employment Program (STEP)

covers up to $4,000 worth of

wages currently for two

summer student positions to

help maintain parks, walking

trails and street fronts.

Council agreed to hire a third

student to meet the town’s needs

in this area at the cost of

approximately $7,000.

The water pooling issue at

Thornton Park was another

concern addressed with possible

solutions to the problem to

be brought back to the next

meeting.


would like take on this

project.

Water credit discovered

In an attempt for the new

CAO to understand the

Shirley McClellan Regional

Water Services Commission

(SMRWSC) and Big Valley’s

financial relation to it,

Brown found $20,000 in

credit to the village.

Numerous conversations

between her and

the staff team led to the

discovery as “conversation

and some of the

reports that are produced

monthly just

didn’t seem to add up to

me,” said Brown in her

report to council.

Brown spoke with

County of Stettler CAO

Yvette Cassidy with her

theory. She put Brown in

touch with a member of

their water management

team and found the credit.

Since inception, water has

been incorrectly metered at

the SMRWSC reservoir and

billed to Big Valley but they

found it should be billed in

Big Valley.

The meter reading is

expected to be fixed in time

for the next cycle.

“There are still discrepancies

that I feel are out there

but we are working with the

people up in Stettler to

figure out if it’s a Big Valley

issue or if it’s a them issue,”

said CAO Brown.

All of council felt the discovery

was exceptional.

“That’s a great find – like

huge. Well done,” said

Mayor Schell.

Brown mentioned there

had been a couple of cases in

which a resident came to the

office and verbally abused

her and other staff

members.

She drew a line in the

sand and asked the individuals

to leave in order to get

their bearings and calm

down before coming back

inside.

A zero tolerance harassment

policy notice has been

placed on the door as

warning.

Typically, a resident

would fill out a one page

bylaw complaint form but

CAO Brown has found that

many residents do not wish

to have their name on the

form.

Mayor Schell assured her

that this was not the case

and all that information was

kept private from the public

including councillors other

than if it reaches court.

“We’ve said it 100 times if

not a million times that yes,

they have to sign their name

to that form but that is not

public knowledge.

“That is straight up yours

and it does not go any further

unless it goes to court.

Honestly, I think in like 30 -

40 years here, there has only

ever been one case that has

ever gone to court.”

Mayor Schell had called

Municipal Affairs about the

CAO’s responsibilities and it

was determined when she

was sworn in, she was

immediately granted bylaw

officer under the Municipal

Government Act.

Council made a resolution

that reinforces the power of

bylaw officer to the CAO

which is either complaint

driven or under her

discretion.

BASHAW COUNCIL

Water Tower

value reviewed

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Council learned at their meeting

held on Thurs. March 21, currently, the

local water tower is insured at $200,000

after council made the decision in 2017.

They felt this was a sufficient

amount of insurance as it may present

challenges for removal.

Their insurance provider has asked

council to start reviewing this on an

annual basis and to provide feedback.

The value of the water tower has

been reduced to $610,000 although previously

valued at $1.2 million.

Coun. Lynn Schultz asked about the

premium attached to this with council

having a consensus of approximately

10 to 15 per cent of the value. They felt

this price would help them make a

decision.

CAO Fuller did some digging and

found the premium to be a whopping

$12.30.

“That was so worth finding,”

laughed CAO Fuller.

A motion was made to keep the

water tower insured at $200,000.

Durksen family reunites in light of bravery award

ECA Review

Yvonne Thulien

The family of John Peter

Durksen gathered Sat. Mar.

30 at Points West Living in

Stettler, Ab. to celebrate and

honour his memory and

legacy.

In June of 1935, Durksen

selflessly gave his life in an

attempt to save two of his

neighbours in the tiny

hamlet of Sedalia, Ab., south

of Consort, Ab.

Through the efforts of

granddaughter Brenda

(Durksen) Reesor and her

husband Dale, the Royal

Canadian Humane

Association (RCHA) graciously

bestowed on

Durksen the Silver Medal

for Bravery posthumously.

According to the bylaws of

RCHA, the incident in question

should not exceed past

18 months.

Never having had such a

request made concerning an

event so long ago, the board

had to meet to discuss the

events of June, 1935.

Moved by the sincerity of

the request, the bravery of

Durksen, and the impact on

the community at the time,

the decision to grant the

medal was made.

When you look at the certificate

it says King George

V bestowed the honour, for it

was he who reigned in June

1935.

There were 34 family

members on hand with all

four of his children’s families

being represented.

On hand were his two surviving

children, Anne

(Thulien) and Walter

Durksen, with their families,

along with the families

of Helen (Wiltse) and Vernon

Durksen.

Also present was

Durksen’s nephew, Bill

Kroker, who grew up on the

farm where the accident

occurred.

Dale Reesor, married to

John’s grand-daughter and

Walter’s daughter, Brenda,

gave a speech regarding the

heroic act Durksen did but

also the sadness of not

knowing how life would

have been with their father,

grandfather, and

great-grandfather.

“Today we gather to

reflect on and celebrate a

life of a father, grandfather,

great-grandfather most of us

have never met. So we too

imagine. We imagine a life

so well-lived but a life lived

so short, a life that concluded

its journey on the

afternoon of Fri. June 28,

1935 at Sedalia.

“We imagine a man

named John Peter

Durksen,” said Reesor.

Durksen arrived in

Canada in 1925 with his

young wife, and a few other

family members as they

landed in Quebec City, like

many Mennonites who left

Europe at that time.

They settled a half mile

north of Sedalia, a hamlet

that was likely much like

the Mennonite enclave of

Marienthal in the

Molotschna Colony of south

central Ukraine.

Durksen and his wife,

Helen, had four children;

Helen, Anne, Walter, and

Vernon.

From the time of arriving

in Canada to his death 10

years later, Durksen became

the successful proprietor of

the local garage and was a

well-respected member of

the community.

On that fateful day in late

June, Durksen heard cries

for help from a couple of

neighbours who were

attempting to repair a frost

plug line in a septic well.

John Dahl, 66, went in

first before having effects

from carbon monoxide

which occupied the space.

His son, Norris Dahl, 22, followed

him in to help him out

before also being distressed

by the noxious gas.

Durksen heard them and

quickly came to their aid.

A doctor from a nearby

community came to the

scene to resuscitate them

but it was too late. Death

certificates state the cause

of death as carbon monoxide

poisoning.

No Greater Love

The theme of

the gathering

was “No Greater

Love” which was

displayed on the

cake the family

shared.

Reesor concluded

his

speech with,

“Years ago a

radio announcer

used to tell stories

and after a

brief interlude,

he would return

with the finish to

the tale told.

Paul Harvey’s

monologue concluded

with him

saying, “and now

the rest of the

story. It was a

punctuation

mark at the end

of his telling.”

“Today, after

almost 85 year’s,

ECA Review

We only need consider how Rick

Strankman was treated to ask ourselves

is Jason Kenney really the

leader we want for Alberta?

Nothing against Nate Horner, but

Kenney and his insiders have manipulated

the United Conservative Party

(UCP) party to clearly sideline former

Wildrose party members.

Released emails between the

Kenney and Jeff Callaway’s UCP leadership

campaigns and audio

recordings from the Callaway insider

club are telling.

Kenney and Callaway concocted a

scheme to ensure former Wildrose

Leader, Brian Jean could not win the

leadership of the UCP.


Wrong answer

Kenny, it’s your personal

responsibility if you

choose to help your mom,

not our tax dollars.

It’s clear Callaway went into the

leadership race to criticize and attack

Jean, then as pre-arranged with

Kenney operatives, drop out of the race

and throw his support behind Kenney

when enough damage had been

inflicted on Jean.

Now Callaway, his wife and other

closely connected people have gone to

court to stop the investigation into

their possible donation violations.

Brian Jean is honourable and

honest—a conservative with principles

who was defeated by the

backroom political maneuvering of the

Kenney/Calloway team. It’s becoming

obvious Alberta has its own dirty little

‘House of Cards’ script of cynical

politics.

Kenney is not a conservative. He’s a

libertarian, neo-liberal and a sadopopulist,

whose policies are designed

to help the richest of the rich, hurt the



MAIL BAG

most vulnerable in society and gain

support through divisive politics.

The Callaway/Kenney campaigns

lied about Jean’s Christian values, his

position on certain pieces of legislation

and accused him of cheating during

the leadership race. Now being challenged

with hard facts, Kenney is

using the Trump standard for sleazy

politics—lie, deny and deflect.

Kenney has a history of shadiness,

including cheating the taxpayer of

$17,000 between 2012 and 2016 when he

claimed as his primary residence the

basement of his mother’s bungalow in

a Calgary retirement community.

Before that he claimed a room in his

parent’s house.

The rules are clear; a primary residence

is where the member spends

weekends and most of his time when

the House is not sitting. The evidence

collected against Kenney was the low

number of airline tickets purchased

to and from Calgary.

When challenged, Kenney used

Trumpian techniques—attack the

lawyer who had the facts and play the

good son card, “I was just helping my

mom”.

Wrong answer Kenney. It is your

personal responsibility if you choose

to help your mom, not our tax dollars.

Kenney is Alberta’s very own Mike

Duffy. Remember, Mike, the man who

smelled up the Conservative Party to

high heaven when caught claiming his

cabin on P.E.I. as his principal

residence.

Breaking election donation rules

wasn’t beyond Kenney either. In 2016

while claiming Alberta as his primary

residence, he donated to the

Ontario Conservatives. Kenney has

been in politics far too long to not

know that a non-resident donating to

political campaigns is illegal.

Surely personal character and

integrity should matter when

choosing a leader. If it were not for the

Kenney/Calloway attack on the democratic

process during the election of

the leader of the UCP, today our choice

could have been between four honourable

politicians, Brian Jean, Rachel

Notley, Stephen Mandel and David

Khan, and our decision would have

been based on policy platforms, rather

than character.

PRAIRIEVIEW

Following the herd

by Herman Schwenk

Jason Kenney has been adamant

since becoming the leader of the

United Conservative Party (UCP) that

his first legislative act if he became

premier would be to repeal the carbon

tax.

So far so good!

Now we find that other than axing

the tax, he really doesn’t disagree that

much with Notley’s “Climate Change

Plan.”


The caucus member

is not given the option to

voice the concerns of their

constituents in the

legislature or

parliament.

According to the Globe and Mail, he

has stated that he believes in humancaused

climate change and will find a

different way to decrease carbon

emissions.

It would appear that he completely

disregards the science of real climate

scientists, that report their findings

based on evidence and not consensus

like environmental scientists.

For example, the temperature on

Mars and the Earth exactly parallel to

each other and Mars does not have

carbon emissions.

Kenney should listen to scientists

like Freeman Dyson, who is one of the

world’s most important thinkers, and

Patrick Moore.

Kenney does not have the courage to

JOYCE WEBSTER

Publisher/Editor

publisher@ECAreview.com

BONNY WILLIAMS

Circulation Manager

stand apart from the mainstream

media or other political leaders when

it comes to the issue of climate change.

He is taking the easy way out and

just following the herd. He should be

condemning Notley’s entire “ Climate

Leadership Plan”

Kenney is going along with the “old”

Progressive Conservative (PC) system

of top-down policy development.

This included allowing the PC political

establishment to orchestrate

dishonest candidate nominating contests

like the one in the Drumheller

Stettler constituency.

This board was totally biased in

favour of one candidate and did everything

it could to prevent members

from voting for another candidate.

They also found a questionable

excuse to disqualify a third candidate

from competing.

There have been numerous UCP

contests that have been controversial

with some candidates being disqualified

and others have given

preferential treatment to the parties

“preferred” candidate was allowed to

win.

What has been obvious ever since

the UCP’s founding meeting is that

operatives from the legacy PC party

have been purging people from the

legacy Wildrose Party.

They do not want grassroots ideas

and influence in this party. Real

democracy is not in their DNA.

You only use democracy when it

works to your advantage.

As has been pointed out in articles

and columns from other writers the

‘party system’ has a systemic

weakness.

The leader decides how everyone in

the caucus will vote on almost every

issue. Turn to Form, Pg 7

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB ApRIL 4'19 7


Change available at the polls

Dear Editor,

It is fine to talk on about

“property rights”, PrairieView,

Mar. 21, 2019, titled, Has happened

before, however keep

talking about property rights

for all Alberta if you are concerned

about provincial and

government control and

regulations.

The same regulations apply to

all title land in Alberta.

As far as the “smear campaign”;

it has been brought into

reality by Rick Strankman and

is totally self-inflicted.

His actions, through words

from the verbatim exchange

between Municipal Affairs

Minister Shayne Anderson on

April 12, 2016 in a Legislative

Committee, are recorded in

Hansard of Alberta.

Cont’d from Pg 6

The caucus member is not given the

option to voice the concerns of their

constituents in the legislature or

parliament.

Independent members of the legislature

do not have that constraint. They

can freely represent the concerns of

constituents in that public form.

What you really have with the party

system is a different form of herd mentality.

The herd follows the leader.

In my opinion, if the UCP had real

leadership it would be staying true to

the grassroots philosophy established

at the founding convention in Red Deer

on May 4 - 5, 2018.

The delegates there did not visualize

that the UCP leadership would

Strankman, in my opinion,

obviously shows no respect for

or acknowledgement that our

democratically-elected Special

Areas councillors and elected

board members even exists, as

he presses the Minister with

comments and questions.

After reading those transcripts,

it can be concluded, in

my opinion, that MLA

Strankman is working against

the Special Areas

Administration by attempting

to undermine it. That undermining

of the Special Areas by

the MLA, in my opinion, must

stop.

Furthermore, it is the people

of the Special Areas, working

with their elected council and

board members, who decide

how the affairs of the Special

Form of dictatorship

condone cheating to have candidates

elected that were the choice of the

party hierarchy rather than members.

The grassroots members of the party

should have been free to nominate candidates

that would represent their

interests.

It seems to me what we will have

now in the UCP is a form of dictatorship

that represents the aspirations of

the leader rather than party members.

For example, getting back to the climate

change issue, caucus members

would have to support the leader’s

position on the issue.

An independent MLA would be free

to expose the fraud that is currently

being perpetrated on humanity.

Wouldn’t that be a change!

Governments have diminished property rights

Dear Editor,

On any given day, we can

read news articles and information

on bullying and its

devastating effects.

My personal experience

started when I was in grade

school.

It was quietly excused as the

“pecking order”.

It was not until I started

standing up for myself that

things changed.

From school yards to politicians,

domestic and global, the

abuse takes many forms from

the obvious to the subtle.

Subtle is defined as, “quietly

making use of clever direct and

indirect methods to achieve

something”.

Past and present Alberta governments

have slowly over time

diminished property rights.

Areas are handled.

Similarly, I do not meddle in

the affairs of Paintearth or

Stettler County affairs because

I don’t live there.

Conversely, I would politely

ask people not to meddle in

Special Areas affairs if they do

not live here.

If an MLA cannot and will

not work with and support all

municipal forms of government

that the present and acceptable

to the people of that Riding,

then that non-supportive MLA

will not be a satisfactory representative

for the Riding.

This is our situation in

Stettler-Drumheller.

We need a change. The

change is available at the election

polls. Doug Fawcett

Consort, Ab.

Punished for their initiative

Cont’d from Pg 6

And without home ownership

– and we don’t mean the overpriced

and over-mortgaged sort

– you are really just a serf which

wordlessly works at the whims

of others.

So with lots of anticipation

and a little desperation, large

numbers of Canadians and

people from around the world

have made Alberta home.

In fact, Alberta’s population

grew much faster than Canada’s

total population from 2001 to

2016.

More than a million people

decided to become Albertans.

That is more people than the

total populations of either New

Brunswick, Prince Edward

Island, Nova Scotia or

Newfoundland, or even a couple

of those provinces combined.

Wow!

Put another way, Canada,

without Alberta, grew by 11 per

cent while Alberta grew three

times faster at 33 per cent.

And so again Alberta claims

the title of the “last best west ”

as it had in the early 1900s.

Why? Back then it was ‘free’

farmland.

Not really free, one still had

to risk and work for it. But

today it is worthwhile work.

If you can’t find that work

elsewhere, Alberta has been the

place to be most of the time.

But today, regular, hardworking

Albertans are being

punished for their initiative

through so-called transfer payments

worth hundreds of

billions of dollars.

And look, the term ‘infrastructure

deficit’, which some

think was caused by paying

down Albertans’ debt, is just a

convenient way to blame and

bully Albertans.

Remember, that while the

Canadian government was

over-taxing Albertans, we

Albertans were absorbing large

numbers of newcomers and still

paying off our public debt.

And to this end, every

Canadian government since

Alberta’s creation in 1905 has

‘exported’ political divisions

like conservative, liberal, and

NDP parties.

From the very start their aim

has been to divide and conquer

Albertans.

We can solve this by realizing

that we are now Albertans and

the Canadians we left behind

have only ever had their very

own interests at heart no matter

how much they wrap themselves

in a Canadian flag.

A flag that now barely covers

our attractive Albertan arses.

Our first Alberta premier,

Alexander Rutherford, once

said, much to the chagrin of his

Canadian liberal party bosses,

“I appeal to you not as liberals

or conservatives, but as

Albertans. The province must

stand before the party.”

But today, for Albertans to

survive and thrive, Alberta

must always stand before

Canada.

This gives government

and corporations immense

power to push through a

wide array of projects,

including oil and gas, seismograph

and electrical

(transmission lines, renewable

energy sources).

Allow me to get on my

soapbox for a minute or two

to address our coming

election.

Once Alberta voters get

past the fear mongering

from the NDP, we will have

a conservative government.

I personally do not want a

return to total dominance

by one party.

This is what got us to

where we are today.

We need conservative

independent thinkers in our

legislature to hold government

accountable.

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB ApRIL 4'19 17


Happy, friendly and outgoing

Ricky Dane Chapman was born at

the Stettler Hospital on Dec. 12, 1977, at

7:55 p.m.

His brother Ryan and cousin Sean

could hardly wait for him to come

home.

Ricky was a very pretty baby and Dr.

Karia said he should have been a girl

and teased Ricky about it for years.

Ricky just laughed.

Ricky was a happy

active baby who grew into

a happy active boy.

Ricky, Ryan and Sean

ran around the farm

always together and when

Damian came along and

got big enough, he went

with them too.

They were all as close

as brothers ever could be.

Ricky could not wait to

start school.

Interment in Wetaskiwin

ANNAS, John Peter

May 5, 1931- March 25, 2019

It is with great sadness the

family announce the sudden

passing of John Annas at the

age of 87, at the Wetaskiwin

Hospital.

He is survived by his

daughters, Geraldine (Barry)

Johnson, Karen (Forrest)

Wright, Shelley (Doug)

Klinger; son, Douglas

(Michelle) Annas; grandchildren,

Heather, Michael

(Samantha), Kyla

(Jeff), Kristyn,

Stuart (Shawna),

Christopher

(Nicole) and

Caitlyn (Zack).

He is also survived

by six great

grandchildren;

sister, Martha

(Emerson)

Robinson;

brother, Charlie

(Frenchy) Annas;

as well as

numerous nieces

and nephews.

He was predeceased

by his

wife, Edna; parents,

John and

Pauline Annas;

and brothers,

Rudy, Nelson and

Gus.

A Celebration

of Life will be

held at Baker

Funeral Chapel

Chapman

When he did finally get there, that’s

when he started his lifelong love of

girls.

Ricky loved sports and started

playing hockey at 6-years-old right

through high school.

He also played other sports

including soccer and ball. He played

football for the Wildcats in Grade 10.

By then he had met his best friend

Stace who was like a brother.

Ricky also held Stace’s parents Gwen

and Terry Stenberg in very high

regards.

Ricky and Stace had many, many

good times together. Ricky remained

happy, friendly and outgoing and had

many friends.

Prior to graduation, Ricky decided to

go and try his hand at pipelining and

Annas

OBITUARIES

flew to the north to work with Dorn

Stewart.

A couple of months later, he

returned to graduate and then went

back to the north with M & N Pipeline

out of Coronation.

Ricky returned many times to work

for his best friend’s dad, Terry at

Stenberg Oilfield.

As with all oilfield work, things

slowed and Ricky went to work

at Sonny’s Welding with his dad

and cousin.

Ricky stayed with Sonny, other

than periodical stints with SK

Welding, Doug Plett-Ram

Welding and Delta Cats and

again with Stenberg Oilfield

until due to health reasons,

Sonny retired.

Ricky, cousin Sean and the

rest of the flock headed to

Watson’s Welding, where Ricky

operated equipment and welded until

2012.

He decided to try something different

and went to work with Foremost

Welding, building hydro vac trucks for

six years.

It was at this time, he met Tabetha

Shaffer and her son Ethan who were a

huge part of his life.

Ricky went to work for WTS

Manufacturing–Wayne Tebbe, where

he worked until his passing.

When Ricky wasn’t pipelining or

welding you could find him at the farm

helping his Dad with the fencing,

working cattle or whatever the day

brought, or in town helping his Mom.

Ricky is survived by his loving

family: girlfriend Tabetha Shaffer

Klaus (In Memory) of Stettler; mother

Double the fundraising for Community Cancer Centre: Silversmith Cattle held their annual

cattle sale in March where they sold tickets on a barbecue. Through generous support of

their bull sale customers, they were able to raise $5,640 with all proceeds given to the

to the Cancer Centre where they will be conducting a raffle to make the dollar figure that

much larger.

allegations on social media of

the “48-hour challenge,” which

dares youth to go “missing” for

48 hours to earn points based on

the number of times they are

mentioned during their

disappearance.

Every report of a missing

person is taken seriously and

investigated with all available

resources. Investigations on

current and recent missing

youth have not revealed any

link to the “48-hour-challenge.”

“We don’t want youth putting

themselves in danger to keep up

with online trends,” says Sgt.

Raymond Tardif of the “K”

Division Missing Persons Unit.

“We remind parents to be

aware of their children’s online

activities and remind them that

fake reports divert resources

from legitimate emergencies

and investigations.”

Here are some tips for

keeping your kids safe while

using the Internet: Set rules for

RCMP

what your kids can and can’t do

online; Teach your kids to check

with you before downloading

anything; Set the expectation

that you will monitor children’s

use of devices; Use parental controls;

Discuss what children are

allowed to share online; Keep

open lines of communication;

Encourage kids to talk to you if

something makes them feel

uncomfortable.

RCMP charge

Federal Institution

staff member

Drumheller RCMP attended

the Drumheller Federal

Institution on March 10, 2019 to

investigate after a female

civilian staff member had been

detained by security for

bringing in drugs and additional

contraband items.

Charges have been laid on

Sarah Kathleen Blanke (40) of

Drumheller, Ab. for one count of

trafficking in methamphetamine

and one count of

trafficking cannabis ‘shatter’

under the Controlled Drugs and

Substances Act, as well as a

charge under the Corrections

Conditional Release Act for

introducing contraband to a

penitentiary.

She has been released from

custody to appear in court on

April 12, 2019.

Bomb threat hoax

Drumheller RCMP received a

complaint that a bomb threat

had been received at the

McDonalds restaurant on Sat.

March 23, 2019, at around 8 p.m.

The restaurant was closed

and the area blocked off by

marked police vehicles.

The RCMP Explosives unit

was consulted and following an

investigation, it was determined

the threat was a hoax and there

was no danger to the public.

Police are continuing the

investigation into the source of

the phone call and the suspect

who initiated the calls to the

restaurant.

If anyone has any information

they want to share with

police they can call the nonemergency

Just like any other fire

department, the Strome Fire

Department came together on

march 21 to restock their trucks

and check their gear for the

next emergency.

The difference was that this

was the first time the local team

had been in their station since

June 13 after a random lightning

strike caused the building

to begin burning.

It severely damaged the structure,

approximately $193,000 in

total according to Flagstaff

County regional emergency services

coordinator, Kim Cannady.

Over the past eight months,

neighbouring community fire

departments including Killam

and Daysland stepped up to lend

a hand while money was raised

and the building was

reconstructed.

Strome members were not

dispatched to any calls during

this time out.

Hansen case explained further

Dear Editor,

Property rights is the fundamental

basis of any free society.

I commend the United

Conservatives for showing the

fortitude to make this a key

campaign plank. This is an

issue that has been at the heart

of the political culture of our

constituency for 81 years.

Folks may remember the

infamous PC land bills, highlighted

by Bill 36 – the Land

Stewardship Act.

Routes not written in stone

Cont’d from Pg 7

“If elected, this spring, our United

Conservative government will bring a

series of specific measures to establish

Alberta as a world leader in the production

of property rights.”

Repeal of the clause would ensure

property rights are restored to ensure

corporations involved in projects,

engage in meaningful dialogue while

respecting land owners’ rights.

Briefly on the ATCO/Altalink transmission

line.

I want to address the issue of proposed

project routes.

These are only proposed project

routes.

The routes presented in your information

package are

very likely subject to

change.

You may not now

be on a proposed

project route, but a

second round of

open houses, by

ATCO/Altalink in

June will present

more defined proposed

project routes.

This will include

the type of structure,

so I am told.

You may remember Section

11, which gave the government

the authority to ‘extinguish’

property rights in the pursuit of

whatever the sitting government

deems to be in the “public

interest.”

We’ve seen the devastation of

what the ‘green left’ ideology

can do to the economy. Without

property rights, the government

can do whatever they

choose to do with your land,

and you have no right or

Be aware, at this time you may be on

the route or closer than you are now.

I bring this up in my conversations

with landowners and there seems to be

a misconception that these current

routes are somehow ‘the routes’,

written in stone.

The routes presented in June will

have been tweaked to address concerns

and comments gathered during

the first round.

Once again, form groups, voice your

concern, stand up for change.

Strength in opposition. Strength in

numbers.

Brett Penosky

Stettler, Ab.

recourse to stop them.

The United Conservatives are

right to stand up for these

rights. One of the cases referenced

in their announcement

was the case of David and Linda

Hansen, a couple residing in the

Special Areas.

The Hansen’s purchased

property in the Special Areas in

the 1980s, and shortly after

were embroiled in a battle with

the government over a dam that

was on their land.

Split the vote, no chance

Dear Editor,

I would like to correct some

misinformation that has been

floating about in the

Drumheller-Stettler

Constituency during the current

Provincial election contest.

Full disclosure, I have a bias

as I have worked in Mr.

Strankman’s Stettler office for

the past seven years.

Firstly, a narrative is being

promoted that Mr. Strankman,

as an independent conservative,

is going to split the vote and

allow the NDP to run up the

middle. There is absolutely no

chance of that happening. It is

simply fearmongering.

In the 2015 Provincial election

Mr. Strankman under the

Wildrose Party garnered 7,570

votes or 47.66 per cent, Mr.

Hayden under the PC’s took

5,388 or 33.92 per cent and the

NDP candidate had 2,927 votes

or 18.43 per cent.

In the 2012 election the NDP

had 408 votes for 2.7 per cent.

So anyone with a room temperature

IQ can crunch the

numbers and see that a split is

not remotely possible.

Mark Nikota is a credible

candidate with the Alberta

Party and may make some

gains in the Constituency but

Drumheller-Stettler’s history

Squeeze

suggests a Conservative

outcome.

Secondly, Mr. Strankman has

been accused of trying to take

land away from landowners in

the Special Areas, that being

Crown leases or tax recovery

land.

Again totally untrue. He has

talked about making revisions

to the Special Areas Act that

has been in force since 1938.

Furthermore, he has suggested

reverting to Municipal

governance may be a better

vehicle to promote economic

development in the Special

Areas.

Currently the Minister of

Municipal Affairs has total control

of Special Areas.

Certain parties are happy

with the status quo as they benefit

greatly from revenue

accruing from oil/gas leases on

the aforementioned Crown

leases.

This has been an ongoing

debate for decades and could

easily be resolved through

referenda.

When I first met Mr.

Strankman he made a statement

to an audience, “There is

never a wrong time to do the

right thing”.

I have never seen him deviate

from that pronouncement. He

has treated all his constituents

with dignity and respect, no

matter what political stripe.

There is no doubt in my mind

that Jason Kenney and the UCP

will form the next Government

of Alberta but who will hold his

feet to the fire, “to do the right

thing”.

He has already cast off “the

grassroots guarantee” that propelled

him into leadership of the

UCP.

He has also watered down his

promise to eliminate the offensive

carbon tax and will keep it

in place for large emitters. And

you know who these so called

large emitters will pass that

expense along to.

The Kenney/Callaway alliance

in the leadership race

should also be troubling if one

believes in ethics.

For those of you who supported

the Wildrose Party in

past elections you may want to

check your hiney for tread

marks.

Mr. Strankman has proven to

me that he is an honest and

decent person, a rare commodity

in politics.

I will be voting for principle

and integrity on April 16. I hope

you will do the same.

G.A. (Gary) Wilyman

Stettler, Ab.

In his letter to the editor,

Cessford native Colin

McNiven (who, coincidently

and unsurprisingly, is also

neighbour to United

Conservative candidate

Nathan Horner) says that

the Public Lands Act sets

policy for the entire

province.

This is simply not true.

It should be noted that the

government department the

Hansen’s were embroiled

with was not the Ministry of

Environment and Parks

(which oversees the Public

Lands Act) but the Ministry

of Municipal Affairs (which

oversees the Special Areas

Act).

Notably, there is a clause

in the Special Areas Act –

Section 27 – which states “If

any conflict between this

Act and any other Act, this

Act prevails.”

Under the Special Areas

Act, specifically Section 7,

landowners within their

borders do not have any

legal property rights.

The Act grants authority

to the Special Areas Board,

who are under the administration

of the Minister of

Municipal Affairs.

The Hansen’s never had

any legal right to their land

under the Special Areas Act.

An interesting tidbit about

that case: Abner Grover

was, at the time, chairman

of the Special Areas Board

while his brother, Archie,

was the Deputy Minister of

Municipal Affairs.

They were both within

their legal right to expropriate

the land. And the

Hanson’s had no protection

against a government arm

that was bent on imposing

their will, no matter the

cost.

The United Conservatives

under Jason Kenney took

clear aim at the Special

Areas Act in their

announcement.

This is where things get

interesting:

The Special Areas Board,

through use of fear tactics,

has engineered a hostile

takeover of the United

Conservative Party in

Drumheller-Stettler.

The influence of the

Special Areas is present:

countless campaign officials

and Constituency

Association board members

have direct ties to the

Special Areas Board itself.

However, without such

stringent controls over landowners,

their ability to rule

as land-barons – as the act

entitles them – fades away.

What is ironic is that they

took over the riding to try

and save the Special Areas.

This policy announcement

by the United

Conservatives all but ends

it.

It’s nice to see Mr.

McNiven standing up so

boldly for his neighbours in

the process. Even when he’s

caught spreading ‘untruths’

in the process.

Cracks appearing in the mask

Dear Editor,

Most of us remember from our

school days the word hypocrite stemming

from a first century Greek word

meaning a mask.

masks in order to appear to be

someone other than themselves, the

word ultimately came to mean an

actor or a stage player.

Freedom or servitude

Dear Editor

Alberta, Strong and Free, has a nice

ring to it. Jason Kenney is now trying

to convince us that this Conservative

government will at last grant us real

property rights, when 45 years of

Conservative rule failed to do so.

While property rights should be

basic to a free society, Albertans

cannot say with certainty that their

property rights are secure.

This is particularly true of our

farmers and ranchers in Special Areas

2, 3, and 4, which sound a bit like the

Russian zemstra of the 1860s.

After generations of serfdom, the

Tsar had “freed” the peasants and

allowed them to own land. He established

zemstra in each district to

resolve local economic issues.

These boards were composed of a

few noblemen and delegates from the

urban and peasant classes, but the

noblemen carried 74 per cent of the

weight in decision making.

However, a Governor had final veto

power over any

decision made.

Not exactly

with a “one size fills all” mentality.

Board members may be well

Furthermore, leasing land does not

encourage the sense of stewardship

that private ownership does.

The Longman (1953) and Hanson

(1961) Commissions recommended a

return to municipal district status, but

a Mr. Clyde Stauffer discouraged its

implementation due to a fear of

drought – so Special Areas 2, 3, and 4

remain (The Special Areas – Canada

Institute of Resources Law).

Perhaps it is at last time to take

courage and phase out the Special

Areas Boards, replacing them with

municipal governments as was successfully

done in Cypress, Newell,

Forty Mile and Taber.

Think of Taber corn; imagine the

benefits of adding some irrigation to

Special Areas 2, 3, and 4!

Canada, he wore the mask of a game

changer, a man committed to the welfare

of all Canadians, promising to

solve the murdered and missing indigenous

women problem, improve the

care and benefits of veterans, as well

as introduce electoral reform.

He pranced, smiled and posed, all

the while keeping his acting mask in

place, never revealing the “real”

Justin.

Once in a while the mask would slip

and he would momentarily give way to

anger, profanity and impatience but

we, as easy going, all forgiving and

polite Canadians gave him a by and

hoped for improvement as time went

on.

We gathered together in various

coffee shops to discuss the matter and

in the end always agreed, although he

was young with very little experience,

he did have nice hair.

As days, months and now years have

gone by, we began to realize even that

attribute was growing thin.

When the ethics commissioner chastised

him and others in his

government for questionable behaviour,

the actor only smiled, stuttered

and stammered his excuses then

combed his hair in preparation for the

next round of selfies.

His roles have been varied as he

toured India, Europe and other foreign

countries but he has kept to the script,

difference.

Thank you to those who care enough

for their neighbours, communities and

families by standing up and saying

“No More”.

Respect and trust are earned, not a

given.

Thank you to those who earn it.

Proud to be Albertan

Perhaps some Special Area farmers

and ranchers are comfortable with

their surface rights income without

actual property rights and freedom to

determine land use themselves.

However, to others it must appear

that their surface rights income is

almost like blackmail in that their particular

land use can be withdrawn at

any time by the Minister or if someone

“reports” them to the Board.

Now is the time to move on this – to

employ our out-of-work energy sector

workers on a serious irrigation system

in the Drumheller-Stettler riding.

Now is the time to elect an

Independent with Legislative experience

who can pressure the

Conservatives to actually follow

through on their years of promises.

Now is the time for Special Areas

farmers and ranchers to accept the

challenges of freedom.

never deviating from the memorized

rhetoric.

In the last few months, critics who

judge the actor’s performance have

noticed cracks appearing in the mask.

The real Justin is beginning to come

into focus.

It is obvious he cares little about

women or veterans or indigenous

peoples.

It has only been a part he has sought

to play in order to be a “Star” on the

world stage.

There is an old saying that fame is

fleeting and probably fickle as well.

Actors come and go and are remembered

no more.

Are the spotlights fading and the

stage growing dim?

Is the production almost over and

will we, the audience, the Canadian

people, give a collective sigh of relief

when we see those longed for words

appear on the screen, “The End”?

Then and only then is there any

hope at all for the return of true

“sunny days.”

24 A pril 4'19 HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB. ECA REVIEW

Oyen local pursuing rap music career

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

With a passion for influential sound,

Shane Kimber, also known as OGR-

Scintilla on stage, has decided to follow

his heart by pursuing a career in the

music industry.

Kimber comes from the unique area

of Oyen, Sedalia and Youngstown as he

grew up on a ranch near these centres.

He attributes much of his work ethic

and down to earth

nature to growing

up on the prairies.

“More than anything

by far,

growing up here

has taught me the

type of work ethic

that I think is

needed because

like I just don’t

take time off,”

Kimber began.

“My personal time

is work and that’s

why being on the

farm is nice

because I go out in

the morning and I

work until there is

a moment I can

slip away and then

I go work on music

until I fall asleep.

It’s because I love

to work and see a

job get done well

and without that there is absolutely no

way I would even see the relatively

small amount of success that I have

seen now.

“I’m really just thankful for how I

was raised and where I was raised

because I feel like it has given me the

character that I need to succeed.

“Knowing that I have that and the

support of my family and community, I

just know that it doesn’t matter if I

wanted to be a musician or a doctor or

professional athlete. I just know that

those things have me set up so well to

go out and accomplish what I want to

accomplish.

50,000 digital streams

OGR-Scintilla has racked up over

50,000 digital streams since he started

releasing music last summer.

His Youtube videos have also produced

approximately 40,000 views.

OGR-Scintilla stands for Overgrowth

Renaissance which was a label he

began with some friends while

Scintilla is another word for small

sparks. Many from Oyen thought the

‘OGR’ stood for Oyen’s Greatest

Rapper.

The country kid-turned-rapper takes

a vastly different approach to his line

of work.

He starts by composing his lyrics the

same way he would with country

music and aims to be positive compared

to the majority of hip-hop songs

in this day and age.

“It’s funny because people don’t

think of that right away but I like to

point out to people that when you look

at how I write my songs, a lot of them

are very much written as though they

are a country song or a folk song and I

definitely don’t get inspiration from the

content of hip hop.

“It’s an interesting thing I like to

take pride in my songwriting.”

Kimber is often known in Oyen as

the swimming instructor after

teaching lessons over the past five

years as well as being a student and

playing sports.

His passion for music became prevalent

when he was a 13-year-old student

in Youngstown School. During his time

there in Junior High, he took guitar

lessons.

He spent some time playing around

with different lyrics and chords before

diving into computer work to learn

more about musical production.

Last year, Kimber graduated from

the University of Alberta with a science

degree in Kinesiology and played

on the volleyball team at the

Augustana Campus in Camrose.

“As I moved off to university, I was

exposed to new music. Some of the

musicians and stuff a lot of people were

listening to were

rappers and I was

interested in how

much emphasis is

put on the lyrics

and song writing

in rap. That’s what

drew me in that

direction,” he said.

He was not

totally infatuated

with old school hip

hop but more so

with the artists of

today like Tyler

the Creator and

Childish Gambino

as he views them

as ‘different ducks’

which is something

he identifies

with. He also looks

up to Willie

Nelson, Frank

Sinatra, and Jim

Croce.

“I guess they

are just different ducks and they’re not

afraid to be themselves. To me, I am a

unique person and I have unique interests

and I really like that so I would say

I really enjoy hip hop, R&B, rap, all

sorts of genres sort of thing and I try to

incorporate all that stuff into my

music.”

Since that time, he has been back at

the ranch helping his father as well as

continually working on his music.

The new musician does all the

instrumentation for his work for himself

and others on top of singing and

rapping.

“I’m stubborn in the way that I like

to do things myself and that definitely

comes from the farm,” said Kimber. “I

just feel like I can do this better myself.

When you’re a farmer you have to be

good at everything right? You’re a

mechanic and a biologist and a doctor

and all of these things combined. I

guess that transferred into how I want

to do music.”

The 23-year-old has taken a moment

to analyze his goals to align with his

core values of happiness, peace, and

high energy.

One way he has been doing so is by

understanding how he can raise people’s

moods.

Strikes a balance

between happy and sad

“I’ve shifted my goals from what can

I do for myself and how many followers

I can get and stuff like that to – now

that some people are paying attention –

how can I put as much goodness out

into the world as possible basically,”

said Kimber.

This route did not always come from

a happy place in the beginning.

Much of his inspiration derives from

less than pleasurable experiences

which originally acted as a coping

mechanism but slowly became a way to

share positive sound to others.

During his year at Medicine Hat

College, he felt it was not a good year as

he continually struggled with anxiety

and other mental health issues.

Although he was playing for the volleyball

team there, the team was often

cliquey.

“I’m kind of an out there guy like I

don’t mind being a little goofy and

weird. They all wanted to be really

cool and they stuck into a pack. I would

say that music definitely brought me

through that time and in the past I

would say that I did not make happy

music.”

Kimber used music as an outlet to

get himself through those difficult

times.

“I would write sad songs about the

way I was feeling and it helped me

rationalize my thoughts and it helped

me get it all out there so I didn’t have to

just let it eat up inside of me.”

Throughout this process, he has felt

the call to helping others after how

much music helped him through dark

times.

There are songs that Kimber has

tucked away but he mentioned there

will be a time when some may be

released.

“It’s just basically me discovering

who I am as a person and all of those

songs were very much written for me

and now I feel like I’ve found who I am.

Now I am writing songs for other

Stark Choices for Voters:

#1 - Power to the Grassroots

or #2 - Pander to a Party?

Rick Strankman takes Oath of Office.

#1. For the Next 4 Years,

If You Want An MLA ...

• Who knows the people who vote and

live here are the collective BOSS

• Who takes direction from, and reports

to, the BOSS

• Who has lived through big parties

trampling members’ rights and enabling

their leaders to cascade tyranny from

the top

• Who has a lifetime of activism and

initiatives in pursuit of fairness,

justice and equality for Albertans and

Canadians

• Who is a direct democracy and

consensus government advocate willing

to put this Better Way Forward

under a bright Alberta spotlight

• Who understands the people who live

here have more and better ideas--and

are collectively smarter--than any level

of government

Then Vote

people because music has had such a

powerful impact on my life. Now I

almost feel like I need to give back and

give songs to people so that they can

relate and can get through what they

are going though.”

He strikes a balance between happy

and sad with his songs so many can

relate to the words. He hopes to help

others realize that depression and anxiety

are apart of your life’s journey.

“I would go as far as to say that

music saved my life. It gave me a purpose

in life.”

The sky’s the limit when it comes to

making it big in the business.

“I don’t really have a ceiling. I would

like to focus on becoming a solo artist

for awhile. I was doing more mixing

and production stuff but I want to be

big. I want to be massive and I want to

collect a following and get a voice that I

can then use to push some positive

messages out into the world because

you don’t see that very much. You see a

lot of people succeeding with very negative

messages and I don’t like that.”

#2. Or, if you

prefer this . . .

• An MLA who wants your vote every four

years but in between is fearful of retribution

for stepping outside of Party priorities or

contradicting a vindictive leader

• An MLA who thinks the Party leader is

the boss

• Inheriting another political party which

believes it is smarter than the real

BOSS—you and everyone who lives

here . . .

• An MLA’s Party whose idea of effective

public input depends on how many public

complaints they receive on a given issue

• An MLA’s Party which believes effective

grassroots engagement means five days a

month in constituency offices

• A Party which protects numerous

specimens of archaic status quo which

should have been improved and

modernized decades ago

the other “Party” folks
