After five days of advanced
polling about 696,000 people
voted, creating a new record.
For the first time, Elections
Alberta provided a ‘vote anywhere’
service, whereby electors
can receive the ballot for their

2 April 25'19 HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB. ECA REVIEW
The opinions expressed are not necessarily
the opinions of this newspaper.
And the winner is—anger
The election campaign is over and
with Jason Kenney as Premier we can
now pray the anger will disperse and
Albertans can get back to civility.
This election loss will also hopefully
allow Rachel Notley to regain
peace and normality in her life. The
Edmonton Journal should now find it
unnecessary to routinely print cartoons
depicting injury to Rachel
Notley. We can pray that the death
threats against Notley will also stop
and the angry tweets, signs and protests
will be a thing of the past.
With the ‘old boys club’ back in
power all should be well.
The fear, of course, is Kenney can’t
deliver what he has promised – “make
Vancouver carbon free by 2020”!
When Kenny’s government “stops
the flow of oil to British Columbia”
when they enact Bill 12, ‘Preserving
Canada’s Economic Prosperity Act’ on
April 30, it will trigger a B.C. court
challenge, start an economic war
between provincial neighbours and
push the pipeline even further down
Of course, Kenney could decide not
to enact Bill 12 on April 30, but would
he risk being a blatant liar one day
Bill 1 for Kenney’s new government
will be the Carbon Tax Repeal Act
which will not reduce prices at the
pumps as many Albertans mistakenly
believe. Instead, it will immediately
trigger Ottawa’s carbon tax and
Kenney’s success at selling anger
and hatred towards Notley and
Trudeau during the election campaign
gave him boldness to also go after
Stumping around Alberta, Kenney
portrayed Quebecers as the most
ungrateful and hypocritical freeloaders
in Canada. By election night,
he switched to French hoping that
Quebecers, with a few words of flattery,
would now work with Alberta to
deliver a pipeline east.
Kenney also left Ottawa with no
options. The federal government originally
approved the Trans Mountain
pipeline based on Alberta’s robust climate
strategy. When Kenney throws
that out the window, Ottawa simply
won’t be able to approve the Trans
Mountain pipeline and meet their
international climate commitments.
Even politically, why would they
with 17 Liberal seats to retain in B.C.
and only four, already lost, in Alberta.
Unfortunately, Kenney has offended
all allies and has over-promised what
he can deliver on the pipeline. He has
also completely exaggerated reality
when he said repealing the carbon tax
will create 6,000 jobs.
People who voted UCP have high
hopes for these promises, yet I predict
Kenney will break his first big
promise as early as April 30, 2019.
Unrealistic election promises and
broken promises lead to the necessity
for an ongoing enemy.
Bill 1 isn’t intended to reduce prices
at the pump for ordinary Albertans. It
was always intended to shift the hate
campaign from Notley to Trudeau and
keep people angry for the federal
Kenney is betting the farm on
Andrew Scheer winning the next federal
election which may be possible.
But he is also banking on the courts to
overturn legal precedents with regard
to interprovincial trade, federal/provincial
jurisdiction, First Nations
rights and environmental protection
and that is a long shot, indeed, since
much of it is constitutional law.
Rachel Notley knew the value of
building goodwill and respect with the
rest of the country as did former
Premier Peter Lougheed.
During her term in office, the reason
for conversation rather than threats
was obvious—pipeline construction to
coastal waters is completely outside of
Alberta’s control—and all the bombast
by Kenney is not going to change this
fact, but it will keep Albertans angry.

Council unanimously approved a
motion to move ahead with landscaping
the three 30’ lots and have
public works and the CAO obtain a
quote from local landscapers with a
view to planting grass.
Council approved the expenditure
for street sweeping for $1620 plus tax in
a 2 - 1 vote.
Mayor Helton was not in favour of
the expense due to the work that was
needed to be done with the sewer,
water lines and pavement patching.
Council approved a motion to repair
the 1996 town truck at an estimated
cost of $435 as a scan showed the transmission

Greenwood, great passion for driving
Hugh William Greenwood
1939 - 2019
Hugh William Greenwood was born
March 16, 1939 on the family farm east
of Lousana, Ab. and passed away April
16, 2019 in the Innisfail Health Center

Hugh and Marilyn purchased two
trucks and the Lousana Garage and
went into business on their own.
J.O. Smith and Sons of Wimborne,
Ab. gave Hugh his opportunity to haul
purebred cattle all over North
It was during this time that Hugh’s
great passion for driving all started.
Trucking was his career path until
1979 when Hugh decided to stay closer
to home when he purchased the UFA
bulk fuel station in Delburne, Ab.
Hugh and Marilyn served the farming
community for 10 years.
In 1989, Hugh traded his work boots
for dress shoes and a tie and entered

So many memories were made and
lifelong friendships began.
When Hugh was 40, he hung up his
saddle and laced up his skates to coach
hockey and enjoy the sports he loved.
Many years of senior men’s hockey
with the Trochu Arena’s gave Hugh the
skills he needed to mentor young athletes
in the community.
He was Governor of the Central
Alberta Hockey Association for years.
Umping ball was also a great service
Hugh gave the community. Many years
were spent behind the plate umping
Curling rinks all over Alberta Hugh

The hobby to top all others over the
years was golf. Nothing made Hugh
happier than hitting the course. Some

were on the golf course.
Hugh’s happiest of days were days he

Delburne council begins enhanced internet service trial
Council instructed administration
to begin a ‘trial period’ for an
enhanced internet service through
Telus at their April 8 regular council
meeting following a lively discussion.
Administration is to advise council
as to the degree of satisfaction for the
service to the village over that trial
Council also agreed to renew the
contract with Wild Rose Assessments.
The contract is for 10 years and will
cost the village the same rate for the
first three years with slight annual
increases through year’s four to 10.
Building a stronger relationship
with the businesses serving Delburne
was discussed by council. One idea
suggested would be to host a Business
Owner’s Appreciation event in the fall
Coun. Tim Wilson told council that

Annette (Schmidt) Barnes was born
on Oct. 20, 1938 at Coronation, Ab. and
was the youngest child of Henry and
Nettie Schmidt. She was welcomed
home by four older siblings: Henry,
Jean, Wilma and Pete.
She spent her childhood
on the farm by Talbot, Ab.
and often spoke of riding on
the horse behind her big
brother Henry to attend the
Talbot School. She later
rode the school bus to attend
high school at Brownfield.
Annette was a member of
the Brownfield Beef Club
and Talbot Garden Club for Barnes
years. She was very proud
when she won grand champion with
her prized Black Angus steer in 1957.
This didn’t sit all that well with her
new father-in-law as he was a confirmed
Annette married Ron Barnes on
Aug. 15, 1956 and moved to the farm
north of Brownfield, Ab. which she
called home for 50
To this union,
were born: Keith,

Quite often the
family would all
load up in the
truck and head
down to the river
pasture to check
Busy with farm and
pleasure in scaring Mom driving on
side hills and ‘going with a truck
where most people wouldn’t even ride
Annette enjoyed being outdoors and
spent hours working in the
yard; between raising children,
chickens and having a
large garden, she was a busy
She was determined to have
a weeping birch tree and after
fighting with the weather, pigs
and bulls that escaped once in
a while, she finally succeeded.
She also made countless
road trips taking one or all of

Anntte played ball as well and won a
gold medal playing ladies fastball at

Calvin and Judy Bishell of Veteran, Ab. stand next to their invented feeding system called the ‘Nifty Feed Dispenser’ in their yard at Nifty Livestock Equipment on Wed. April 17. The
couple founded and have been operating the business since 1986.
Nifty Livestock Equipment paving
the way in farm technology
Nifty Livestock Equipment has
been paving the way for east central
Alberta farmers and ranchers equipment
When Calvin and Judy Bishell,
owners of the well-known equipment
supplier, started their business over
30 years ago they never expected to
come up with their own invention.
After many dry years and shortage
of feed, Calvin came up with the idea
of a simple feeding system that
allowed him to be more efficient when
feeding his cattle with grain, pellets,
The Nifty Feed Dispenser was born
out of necessity and has now come to
the aid of many ranchers who have
bought the special piece of equipment.
“We had to improvise and figure out
how we were going to get through the
winter with enough feed to get the
livestock through,” said Calvin.
“We were loading buckets with a
pickup truck trying to figure out how
we could do this easier,” added Judy.
“Calvin would go by himself and
dump pails out by himself and so he
would unroll a bale as slick as could
be and then load all of these buckets in
and around the bale handler and go
out. I could drive the truck and he
could dump the buckets.”
He designed the drum after determining
he could use the bale handler
to do this work.
The simple design features an
opening that can be drawn or opened
by the pull of a lever and when rolled
by the bale handler, it dispenses feed
stored inside every 15 feet for consistent
amounts and space.
It worked so well they took it to
market and received a patent for the
“That opened the doors to a whole
new venture with doing trade shows,
promoting the equipment and advertising,
learning how to market, and of
course Judy picked up the bookkeeping
of that too so we learned as
we went,” said Calvin.
From that point, the business
evolved to offer a wide range of products
to suit individual needs and are
‘ranch proven’ before it is manufactured
They carry cattle handling equipment,
watering systems, feeding
supplies, fencing supplies and ear tags
which have been supplied all over the
At one point, ear tags were shipped
all over Canada but now this part of
the business has been turned over to
daughter-in-law Shanna with Nifty
Tag Sales, not to be confused with
Nifty Livestock Equipment.
Customers began to ask about other
products they had in store so more
products were added to their arsenal
of farm and livestock equipment.
The benefit of being an independent
dealer set them apart from the regular
chains as they could pick and choose
what they feel works the best from
“We are able to test and try this
equipment and if it wasn’t suitable
then it wasn’t on our list of products
“That gave people the confidence
that they needed too, that we had
some quality equipment that we
would stand behind,” said Calvin.
The third generation ranch sits on
3,600 acres of dryland, with a 200 commercial
In the rolling plains of east central
Alberta, the ranch is located east of
Veteran and less than an hour from
the Saskatchewan border.
The couple is now nearing retirement,
however, Nifty Livestock
Equipment will be around for many
years to come with both sons Steve
and Jason and their families carrying
on the family legacy.
“We’ve been there and we’ve done it
and now it’s time for the next generation,”
A dedicated customer support base
from far and wide has always been
appreciated as well as the connections
they have made over the years.
“It has been rewarding and we’ve
met a lot of nice people over the years.
That’s the other thing that’s been
rewarding is a lot of friends we would
have never met if we weren’t doing the
shows and all the places we have
never would have seen,” said Calvin.
“We know where pretty much every
small town in Alberta because I mail
them ear tags,” said Judy.
The pair also volunteer as much
time as they can allow aside from
The local Lions club, 4-H club, East
Central Housing organization and
United Church are all volunteer-based
organizations they play a part in

Relocation of recycle bins
The relocation of the Forestburg
recycling bins was up for debate at
council’s regular meeting on Thurs.
It was proposed they move the bins
from their current location across
from the public works shop to a lot
located at 4306-47 Street, south of the
school bus parking lot at an estimated
cost of $38,600.
The estimate included installing a
culvert, creating an approach, laying
gravel and putting up fencing at the
new location in order for the bins to be
moved; as well as reclaiming the old
These costs would be covered by the
Garbage Reserve fund and Flagstaff
Waste would cover the cost of moving
Coun. Elaine Fossen requested
revised quotes based on a smaller site
plan before moving forward with a
Flagstaff Regional Solid Waste
Management (FRSWM) reported that
the recycling program continues to
have difficulties with contamination.
A recent paper run was 26 per cent
contaminated and required 20 hours
of labour to sort.
FRSWM is hoping to educate the
public on the importance of following
recycling guidelines and putting the
proper items in appropriate bins.
