Paradise Shores stop order issued
Concerned with safety at the RV
Sites Canada Paradise Shores development
along Buffalo Lake, the
Municipal Planning Commission
(MPC) has ordered to cease construction
and remove RVs until compliance
The MPC issued a stop order to the
Paradise Shores RV Resort at a special
meeting called by the MPC on Fri. May
On May 2, the County of Stettler conducted
a site inspection at the property
to determine compliance with the
County’s Land Use Bylaw and DP
18001, issued in relation to a recreational
The County had significant concerns
that requirements of the
development permit as issued by the
Subdivision and Development Appeal
Board (SDAB) were not being met.
Both the county and the developer
are both bound by the decision of the
A report from their inspection
showed that “it is clear that the property
is in a significant state of
non-compliance and as such poses an
immediate risk to the health and
safety of occupants/visitors to the site.
The health of the naturalized areas
contained within the NE 20-40-20-
W4M, and the bed and shoreline of
Buffalo Lake are also at risk if the noncompliance
is not corrected.”
Risks like public use of an unapproved
water system and sewage
systems, potential risks associated
with incomplete or insufficient slope
stabilization, particularly in light of
the evidence of slope destabilization
and sloughing present, and the lack of
accessibility for emergency vehicles
According to the press release, the
non-compliance of the property with
the SDAB decision has been brought to
the attention of the applicant several
times during the past few months
before any stop order was issued.
As a result of the applicants refusal
to address the areas of non-compliance,
the MPC came to the decision to
finally issue the stop order.
The owner and developer are now
immediately required to stop developing
or use the land or demolish,
remove, or replace the development or
carry out any other actions required
by the notice so that the development
or use of the land or building complies
with the MGA, the LUB, development
permit or a subdivision approval.
If Paradise Shores’ developers
choose not to comply with this order,
the county may be on the hook for

costs in order to bring the recreation

will be added to the property’s tax roll.
The decision to limit the amount of
lots on the property was made on Nov.
Once all of the conditions to the
development permit are met, this
existing permit would allow the developer
to host a maximum of 168 RV sites
as the SDAB determined in November
On Nov. 30, 2018, Paradise Shores
filed an application for permission to
appeal the SDAB’s decision with the
Court of Appeal of Alberta.
By Jan. 23, the judge reserved their

Town Hall meeting scheduled fall 2019
“Where’s the town hall meeting?”
asked Mayor Howard Helton referring
to his copy of the agenda at the regular
council meeting May 16.
“Oh on mine, it’s here,” pointed out
Coun. M’Liss Edwards. “Oh, it missed
“Is there any more surprises here?”
asked Mayor Helton.
Moving into the report, Helton
noted, “I’ve actually read it [Coun. Bob
Graham’s report], I thought about it
but didn’t see it on the agenda.”
Council approved a motion brought
forward by Coun. Bob Graham in a
2 - 1 recorded vote to hold a town hall
meeting in the fall for the purpose of
sharing with the village what is currently
happening and give residents an
open forum to allow discussion on various
In Coun. Graham’s written proposal,
he stated 15 different issues on hand
including the electric fire pump,
backup generator, Mayor’s office,
paving and patching, moving recycle
bins, green space, the Chief
Administrative Officer’s (CAO) retirement
package, surplus money in
village finances, tennis court repurposing,
drainage, library, Sod House
museum, new business attraction, Sea
Cans and sewer and water lines.
“We’re spending a lot of money
potentially so we should make them
aware of what’s going to be happening
– how much can be covered in our
usual year to year expenses and how
much we will have to dig into savings
to cover those investments.
“We have money in the bank so I
think sometimes it’s good to spend that
money if you’re doing it to make a significant
improvement but it would be
nice to have people sort of say that the
council listened and we’re on the same
page as the community,” said Graham.
Mayor Helton stated he was in
favour of a town hall meeting for
bringing residents “up to speed” on
what council was doing, noting, however,
that this is the purpose of the
website which is still in its infancy.
He went on to say, however, the website
does not give the public a platform
for much input as he would like.
Mayor Helton rebutted several of
Coun. Graham’s points and noted that
the council had removed several
restrictions for discouraging public
input put in place by the previous
council to prevent the public from
Helton concluded his comments
stating, “I would like to see the residents
approach council and use this
venue first because we’ve put an
opportunity in place to approach us or
submit as an individual or organization,
to sit in the gallery to approach
council and bring their ideas.
Council made several motions to poll
the residents of Morrin in their utility
bills on various subjects.
Polling questions are to include how
residents would like to see notifications
reach them; possibility of
allowing Sea Cans in residential areas
and a retirement package for the current

Lifting up the
broken, lifts us all
“Our priority is for more manpower
for those we’re afraid of and not the
ones we’re mad at”, said newly
appointed Edmonton Police Chief, Dale
McFee, at his swearing in ceremony.
“We will be equally relentless in
leading solutions to help the vulnerable
within our city that make up the
majority of our calls for service and
where the best path forward might not
be a jail cell.”
For those who work with the homeless,
addicted, mentally ill and those
experiencing domestic violence,
McFee’s comments speak truth to
power. Each year multi-millions of tax
dollars are simply poured down the
drain in the revolving door of policing,
health care, justice and jailing of the
homeless, mentally ill and addicted.
What an economic

Not more than two days later during
a conversation with a 40-year-old successful

mentally ill and addicted and those

This millennial was absolutely right
on one point; homelessness takes an
economic toil on property values, livability

Last year I travelled through many
European cities, but the most impressive

simple reason it has no homelessness.
Not in the downtown core, nor anywhere
else. Simply they have invested

Government leaders need to stop
being mad at our homeless, addicted
and mentally-damaged citizens and
start to see them as human beings who
require our help.
In 2009 Edmonton City Council and
its mayor, Don Iveson, developed
Edmonton’s Plan to End Homelessness.
It focuses on strategies to quickly find
a home for those experiencing homelessness
and then give the supports
they need to keep that home.
Progressive politicians understand
it is cheaper for society to provide
housing and in-house supports for the
newly-liberated homeless than continue
the insanity of police,
doctors, judges and jailers simply
recycling the same victims.
Communities of former homeless
people need on-site visits from psychologists,
doctors, nurses, social
workers, career counsellors and lifeskill
coaches. They need house
mothers, addiction programs, safe
injection sites and social service

I hope the words of Edmonton’s Chief
McFee’s message strikes a chord with
our new provincial government when
planning their next budget.
Maybe a trip to Vienna for Premier

the homeless haters of the value
of spending money on the root causes
of homelessness. Leaving our vulnerable

Hanna Spray Park one
step closer to reality
With a total of four residents present,
it was a stark divide in favour of
breaking ground on a new spray park
in Hanna and two against it.
At the council meeting on Tue. May
14, Diana Boxma and Barb
Burgemeister voiced opposition to the
Burgemeister said the Spray Park
funding “…shouldn’t come out of the
Town budget or our taxes”.
Boxma suggested the Spray Park
Committee should find additional
grants and asked the Council members
to vote no in their decision making.

property owners will see
a decrease in municipal
taxes from their 2018
- CAO NEILL
Those supporting the park included
Ken Hansen who stated “Spray parks
are something well utilized in this era”
while Sammi Jo Lee ended her presentation
by stating “Hanna is worth the
drive. Ensure it is worth the stay”.
The construction of a spray park in
the Town of Hanna has been discussed
in the community for close to six years.
Operating costs are estimated at
$10,000 per year and would cost the
average property in Hanna $5.42/year
to operate the spray park. Coun.
Campion voiced his concern that this
$10,000 estimate seems low.
Five council members including
Coun. Deadlock, Stickel, Jensen, Olsen
and Mayor Warwick voted to approve
the spray park while Coun. Campion
and Coun. Beaudoin voted against the
Council responsibility, in approving
this proposal by the Hanna Spray Park
Committee, entails the Town contributing
$100,000 toward the $400,000
capital cost, contributing land sufficient
to construct the spray park, and
accessory building, and the Town
assuming ownership and operation of
the Spray Park once constructed.
Balanced budget and
decreased tax rate
The vote to accept the 2019 Spring
Budget adjustments passed unanimously.
CAO Neill, during the
discussion on this year’s Spring
Budget adjustments, noted that
“Administration was directed to
increase the residential tax rate by one
per cent and decrease the non-residential
rate by one per cent which will
require a draw from surplus of $33,664
to balance the budget.”
Total expenditures for the Town of
Hanna for 2019 are estimated to be
$10,360,816 while total revenues for the
same period are estimated to be
$10,360,817 which is considered a balanced
Neill continued “with the decrease
in residential assessment and increase
in the municipal tax rate, 75 per cent of
residential property owners will see a
decrease in municipal taxes from their
“The increase in non-residential
assessment and the decrease in the
municipal tax rate will provide approximately
40 per cent of non-residential
property owners with a decrease in
municipal taxes from their 2018
amount,” said CAO Neill.
The Education Tax Requisition and
Acadia Foundation requisition were
not factored into the percentages he
Infrastructure project concerns
CAO Neill stated MPE Engineering
has completed the detailed design portion
of the 2019 infrastructure Project
based on projects identified by the
Town and are ready to go to tender as
soon as possible.
Town Administration recommended
that the project does not
proceed to the tender stage until the
province has approved the 2019 MSI
(Municipal Sustainability Initiative)
Capital Funding, and with the province
not expected to release a budget
until the fall, MSI funding may not be
confirmed until after the construction
season has come to a close.
Therefore, Hanna Administration
has been reviewing the idea of taking
the MSI money allocated to 2018 and
2019 and use it in 2020.
“If there is an earlier confirmation
of MSI finding and the time to complete
the project satisfactorily prior to
winter, administration will get the
project tendered immediately,” stated

and on social media.
“Posts on behalf of the film company
looking for vehicles and people continue
to be popular,” said Armstrong.
A scene for a dance was filmed at the
Hanna Legion on May 18.
Armstrong estimated the production
team has spent $200,000 in the region
for hotels and catering.
While the production crew is really
happy with daytime food services, the
biggest challenge they face is no restaurants
in Hanna are open after
10 p.m. when the company wraps up
work for the day.
Are unwanted computers, printers, TVs, leftover paint and containers,
and household hazardous waste taking up room in your house?

Michelle White gave a highlighted
report of the 2019 operating budget.
Council was pleased with the
results as it has been “a step in the
“We’ve come a long ways in a
short time,” said Mayor Rob Fehr.
They passed the multi-year capital
budget with one amendment to include
$50,000 for road and sidewalk work as
well as some other adjustments.
Since Alberta’s economy has taken a
downturn, this has been reflected in
assessments so tax bills for Alix residents
will be lower.
The mill rate has stayed relatively
the same but assessments are down by
$35,371 which will be seen on tax bills
as a decrease in taxes.
The Alberta School Requisition
amount is based on prior years as the
provincial budget will not be released
in the fall due to the election.
Water has been a contentious issue
for some time after a large leak was
found a couple of years ago, draining
the village’s water budget
Since then, they have been billing
for less water.
Before their last meeting, there were
three water main breaks within the
village, losing roughly 1,900 cubic
metres of water.
Public Works has been diligent in
keeping an eye out for damp spots if
they arise as they could mean a potential
They are comparing the last three
months of last year to the first three
months of this year and “we are seeing
up on our water lass by almost
double,” said CAO White.
Their bulk water supply has been
successful so CAO White expects more
revenue from this source.
Water insurance has risen from
$3,000 to $5,000 while sewer insurance
also rose $200 from $2,400 to $2,600.
All of the village’s water metres
are no longer under warranty so more
have been ordered as replacements.
“We only have a couple on the shelf
so we’ve got to order some
more water meters in case
we need to do a sudden
change out,” said CAO
A significant drop from
an estimated $40,000 in revenue

“We’ve found that they
are fluctuating very much.
We had $63,000 in revenue
one year and $12,000 revenue
the next year so it all depends on
the billable incidents that our fire
department responds to and we have
no control over what those numbers
are so I didn’t want to artificially
inflate it,” said CAO White.
The arena insurance was also
noticeably down by $3,000 from the
year before, prompting the CAO to
double and triple check that the information
This was confirmed from the
insurance company, giving the village
an extra $3,000 to work with rather

Statement on alternative proteins
The effort to stop food producers
from labelling vegetarian-based products
as meat in Canada is part of
international movement towards
achieving a common nomenclature for
meat derived from animal-based proteins.
The drive for improved clarity
and consistency for consumers in
labelling alternative protein products
started in France and Italy and regions
in the United States have since acted to
disallow plant-based meats items to be
labelled and marketed as ‘meat’ or use
terms such as ‘beef.’ Canada has its
own regulatory requirements in this
area, and they should be respected.
The Canadian Cattlemen’s
Association (CCA) is working with its
U.S. counterpart, the National
Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA),
on the need for a consistent approach
to, and predictable rules for, the labelling
of meat products with
international bodies like the
International Meat Secretariat,
International Beef Alliance and Codex
The CCA’s view is that for a product
to be labelled or marketed as meat it
must meet the legal definition of
“meat” or “meat by-product” as
defined in the Food and Drug
The Food and Drug Regulation
•“Meat” as the edible part of a carcass
that is the muscle associated with
the skeleton, tongue, diaphragm,
heart, gizzard or mammalian oesophagus,
with or without accompanying
and overlying fat, together with those
parts of the bones, skin, sinews,
nerves, blood vessels and other tissues
that normally accompany the muscle
and are not ordinarily removed in
dressing a carcass, but does not include
the muscle associated with the lips,
snout, scalp or ears. (B.14.002 [S])
•“Meat by-product” as any edible
part of an animal, other than meat,
that has been derived from one or more
animals that were healthy at the time
of slaughter. (B.14.003 [S])
Custom Meat Processing
Located south of Coronation, AB
Canada’s rules and regulations
governing labels for
products include the Food
and Drugs Act (FDA), the
Food and Drug Regulations
(FDR), the Safe Food for
Canadians Act (SFCA) and
the Safe Food for Canadians
