ECA Review

Forestburg council members

reviewed and accepted the 2020

to 2024 Capital Plan at their regular

meeting on Thurs. June 6.

Proposed capital projects for

2020 include replacing the computer

server for $25,000 with

funding to come from the contingency


The new subdivision road at 58

Avenue west will be reconditioned

for a cost of $58,500 from

the provincial Municipal

Sustainability Initiative (MSI).

The outdoor swimming pool

requires a new pool liner and

will be replaced for $160,000 with

funds from the pool reserve/

operating funds, donations and

the Federal Gas Tax Fund

(FGTF). The street (57 St. W.)

from Hwy 53 to 46 Ave. West will

also be reconstructed in the next

year for $300,000 with funding

from the MSI.

The five-year plan is not

binding and can be amended if

council determines that priorities

need to change due to

emerging issues in the future.

Operating Plan approved

Council approved the

Operating Plan with the most

significant change related to fire

services as the Village of

Forestburg will become a

member of the Flagstaff

Regional Emergency Services

Society next year.

An annual requisition will be

paid to this organization and

administration has determined

that the fairest way to charge for

fire costs is through utility bills.

It is expected that taxes from

2019-2020 will be reduced as the

burden of fire costs will be covered

by utility bills rather than

property taxes.

A fire utility will cost will be

created to ensure that large

facilities such as Big Knife Villa

and the public school are still

contributing to the cost of fire

services even though they do not

pay property taxes.

It is anticipated that property

taxes and utility rates will be

affected by the projected operating


In 2020, the residential tax rate

is expected to decrease by 4.8 per

cent from 2019. Based on a residential

property assessment of

$100,000, this means that a

yearly tax of $1,304 this year,

would be $1,255 in 2020.

The Special Culture and

Recreation Tax of $210 per property

will continue to be added to

the municipal tax notice.

New public works trucks

Five trucks were stolen from

the public works yard in

Forestburg from May 9 to May

12 and though all the trucks

were recovered, they also sustained

some level of damage.

The village is now in need of

replacing two trucks that

received extensive damage.

Council approved the purchase

of two new trucks to

replace the two that were damaged

at a cost of $49,161.

Avenue utility bill

request defeated

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Last month, Alix resident Louie

Humbke came to council asking for

utility bill forgiveness for the months

of March and April.

Frozen water lines forced the resident

to leave for that time period to his

other property.

Council ultimately defeated the

motion to waive $192.35 in utility bills

at their regular meeting on Wed. June


According to the village’s utility

bylaw, any utility charges are applied

to all premises within the village

regardless of whether it is occupied or


Following the last meeting, Humbke

was advised to pay his outstanding

bills to avoid any further penalties and

if council were to give the waive, he

would have been returned a credit to

his account.

As many village bylaws outline, any

pipework that is under private property

is the responsibility of the owner

while anything underneath public

property is the village’s responsibility.

In this case, it was under village

Interest from

potential businesses

Delburne council heard at their May

businesses were looking at

Delburne. One of these potential businesses

would be a fuel station. Since

the U.F.A. ceased operations in 2017,

the community has experienced difficulty

purchasing farm fuel and

lubricant products locally.

continues to draw interest by


Council approved the amendment to

two bylaws. The monthly payment of

Property Taxes and the Fees and

Charges bylaw change requested is to

allow taxpayers in arrears to pay in

instalments. This option was not provided

for in the previous bylaw.

Council also delegated the authority

to the chief adminstrative officer to

enter into any T.I.P.P. (tax instalment

payment plan) agreement with the taxpayers

Chief Administrative Officer, Karen

Fegan brought to Council’s attention

that a vacant property with outdated

improvements had been turned over to

the village in a tax sale auction in 2018.

However, before the building can be

removed from said property, the

asbestos in the building would have to

be removed.

Council agreed unanimously to

accept the bid of $3,570 to remove the

asbestos only.

Council learned at their regular

May 13 meeting that under the

Municipal Development Plan between

Red Deer County and the Village of

Electricity contract extended to 2023

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Through a program endorsed by the

Rural Municipality Association

(RMA), the County of Paintearth

retained Unified Energy 8760 to review

its electricity distribution and transmission

costs to ATCO to see about

saving some costs.

In a report from last month, they

recommended one site that could be an

opportunity: the Crowfoot Reservoir


They found the county could save

$8,000 per year until they reach $50,000

by changing the building rate and setting

a 13 KW minimum rate contract

which council agreed to continue with.

One snag was an upfront one-time

fee of $20,935 to ATCO Electric to keep

them whole on their investment in the

service of the site.

Council also decided to extend

their contract by two years to 2023 as

an industry professional felt this

would be the wisest decision as they

were unsure of what the electricity

market will be by the time their original

contract is up for renewal.

“They are recommending that we

would sign up on the variable rate and

at any time we can switch to fixed.

They are just not sure what the

capacity market and what the prices

are going to look like,” said Lana Roth,

director of corporate services at the

regular meeting on Tues. June 4.

“We think it would be advantageous

to give us the flexibility because they

are not confining us in some locked in

rate over time but their suggestion is

rather than locking in because they

think the market is still standing to go


It would be better to stay now at a

floating rate than locking in at a

higher one and losing that flexibility,”

added Chief Administrative Officer

(CAO) Michael Simpson.

“The intention of the strategy is to

give you maximum flexibility moving

forward in managing electricity costs

as the dust settles on the capacity

market,” said Roth.

This contract solely focuses on the

price of power and does not include


The corporate services director

spoke highly of their new electric


“We’ve been happy with 8760. It is

nice having someone who you can just

email if you have questions about your

contract or billing changes. They are a

lot easier to deal with than who we

were dealing with before,” said Roth.

Draft policy

fire protection service charges

A policy to outline who will receive

fire protection charges was approved.

As per council’s request at a prior

meeting, a draft policy was created to

give council a set of criteria they could

use when determining who will be

receiving charges for fire department

services and who will not if someone

were to appeal the bill they received.

“It’s nice to have that criteria I

Butterwick has had a long lasting

career in both calf roping and steer


Starting out by entering amateur

rodeos in 1965, Dale turned pro in 1969

winning the Hi Point Permit that year.

Competing for 21 years, Dale was

known to have pushed as many steers

and calves as he had run himself.

He was always around to give a

helping hand or teach a lesson or two.

After Dale was finished competing,

he judged pro rodeos including the

Canadian Finals Rodeo and the

Calgary Stampede, in order to give

back to the community that helped

him along the way.

In 1998, he took the position of rodeo

coach at Olds College and enjoyed

helping students get started in their

own rodeo careers.

Dale was well known for his fairness

in both of these positions and an excellent

coach to all.

Along with an outstanding rodeo

career, Dale has held a love for

ranching and training horses.

Taking pride and patience into

account; the work and effort Dale put

forth has resulted in some of these

Jason’s “War Room”

Brenda Schimke

It was late 2015 when four oil sands

and Exxon Mobil also gave their

They were open to working with the

Alberta Government to effect change

and move forward. But given an

opening, the election of Jason

Kenney, they greedily jumped back off

the green wagon for another chance at

short-term riches.

Two majors in the

energy sector stand

world order.

Albertans voted for Jason Kenney

because he was business-friendly. But

his announcement that he was establishing

especially an industry with monopoly

power and huge market control.

a good climate for investment but

understands their most important role

is adjudicator, balancing the greed of

corporations against the wellbeing of

all their citizens.

By becoming the propaganda arm of

one industry, Premier Kenney is

clearly in the camp of short-term

thinkers, rather than long-term visionaries.

We were outraged, and rightfully so,

when Prime Minister Trudeau kowtowed

to the executives at

SNC-Lavalin, yet Premier Kenney is

showing the same deference to oil and

gas oligarchs.

Two majors in the energy sector

stand outside Kenney’s old world order.

On May 27, Canadian Utilities Ltd, a

subsidiary of ATCO, sold their entire

Canadian fossil fuel-based electricity

generation portfolio. Then on April 2,

Shell, a subsidiary of Royal Dutch

Shell, urged Canada’s oil lobby group,

Canadian Association of Petroleum

Producers (CAPP), to support a carbon

tax. They have not left CAPP, but have

stepped down their involvement

because of CAPP’s stance on climate


Through all these examples, we’re

starting to see a clear delineation

between female and male leadership.

We now have four recent examples

where women are showing ethical and

visionary leadership in governance,

whereas male politicians continue to

display lapdog servitude to corporate


It was two women in Trudeau’s cabinet,

Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane

Philpott who sacrificed their positions

rather than cover up CEOs behaving

badly. Nancy Southern is the

chairman of ATCO and that company’s

recent decision puts it as one of the few

Alberta entities positioning themselves

for the future reality. And then,

lest we forget, former Premier Rachel

Notley successfully garnered industry’s

blessing and support for her

forward-thinking Climate Leadership


Ironically, Kenney’s decision to taxpayer

fund a communications “war

would be equivalent to Trudeau

having used tax dollars to open a $30

million communications “war room”

in Montreal to help out poor corporate

giant, SNC-Lavalin.

Fact checking needed

Dear Editor,

The author claims that Dr. Tim Ball

the environment in the article titled

Carbon tax – split decision, May 9, 2019,

Dr. Ball was a professor of geography

at the University of Winnipeg,

not a professor of climatology nor a

professor on the environment.

He (Dr. Ball) claims “that almost

everything that we hear on radio and

on television is propaganda and fake


Yes, we should be careful about what

we see, hear, or read in the news, in

social media (emails, Facebook,

Folks should do some research/fact

Genocide? Misses the mark

by Herman Schwenk

The government released its final

report on “The National Inquiry into

Murdered and Missing Indigenous

Women and Girls [MMIW] on June 3,


According to Edmonton Sun columnist,

Lorne Gunter, they

have made it much

harder to reconcile

Indigenous and non-

Indigenous Canadians

by insisting on using

the politically charged

term “genocide” not

once but numerous

times in its final report.

I totally agree with



There was no attempt

to deliberately exterminate

Indigenous women.

To me, genocide is when one group of

people set out to completely exterminate

another group of people like Hitler

was doing with the Jews.

In many ways, this report is a whitewash.

It does not really reflect what

went on.

Because of how our previous governments

have treated and managed these

people ever since Canada became a

nation, they have been treated as

second class citizens by our society.

For this reason, the Indigenous

people have never received the respect

they were entitled to by the rest of our


There seems to be an attitude that

they are expendable.

By repeatedly using the term genocide

in the report, it leaves you with the

impression that the harm was all

caused by the rest of our society when

nothing could be farther from the


According to the information I have

Indigenous men were the cause of 70 to

80 per cent of the murdered and

missing Indigenous women.

I have not actually read the report,

but I watched many reports about the

various hearings that were held across

the country.

Not once did they report that

Indigenous men were responsible for

many of these deaths.

That would not have fit with the narrative

that this government wanted to

communicate to the rest of us.

You can be sure that the report from

these hearings was intended to make

the Liberals look like the great saviours

of the Indigenous people in

this country.

While this issue is a national

tragedy calling the issue of the

MMIW genocide will not solve the

problem especially since the

report does not acknowledge that

their own people were directly

responsible for much the violence

suffered by these women.

As well the RCMP were complicit

in not treating these women

the same as other women in


The Harper government had many

requests to authorize an inquiry into

the issue of murdered and missing

Indigenous women.

Stephen Harper refused to do it

because he knew that it would not

achieve what it was supposed to


The government already knows

what the real problem is, but successive

governments have been unable to

solve the problem.

In spite of the 200 or so recommendations

in this report, it will not really

remedy the basic issue.

When the Europeans discovered

North America, they just moved in and

occupied the land.

Importance of committing to their own successes

by Wyatt Laing

Hughenden Public School’s (HPS)

Grade 9 students and parents attended

a meeting about what to expect in high

school next year on May 29.

After the hour long meeting, there

was an opportunity for students and

parents to get some more personalized

advice from teachers.

The evening was well attended, as

most of the Grade 9s brought at least

one parent to hear the information and

ask any questions they had.

Senior high teachers each spoke

about the importance of committing to

their own success and of credit


“If this group stays focused in the

beginning of the year they will do

great in high school,” said Mrs. Hoyt,

high school English Language Arts

teacher at HPS.

The school holds this meeting each

year to address frequently asked questions

that students or parents usually

have about the transition from junior

high to high school.

by K. Smawley and R. Ries

The Theresetta junior high travelled

west on May 29 to start their annual

Kootenay Plains camping trip at the

Kootenay Plains Ecological Reserve

west of Nordegg, Alta.

The trip is a fun-filled four days of

hiking, camping, sightseeing and


Throughout the second semester, the

Grades 7 - 9 classes have been in an

Outdoor Education class and have

been working towards, and preparing

for, this trip for the last four months.

The group who travelled included 28

junior high students, two teachers and

eight parents. Together, the trip is a

tradition at Theresetta dating back to

the 1980’s and continues to be a treasured

trip for the junior high classes to

this day.

On the six plus hour bus ride on May

29 to the Cavalcade Group Camp, they

bus stopped at Nordegg so the students

could learn about the history of the

community and Crescent Falls, along

the Big Horn River, for a quick walk

and breathtaking sights.

The group hiked, after setting up

camp, up to nearby First Nation’s

sweat lodges before returning to camp

for some games and time around the

Out of sight, out of mind

Cont’d from Pg 6

There was no formal negotiation or

agreement with the native people at

that time as a right to control or govern

the territory.

However, there were native people

living all over the continent, and they

could not be ignored, so after Canada

became a formal country, something

had to be done.

So what was done under the auspices

of the British Crown was to negotiate

treaties with the Indigenous people

and they were allotted parcels of land

called reservations for them to live.

kilometres hike to the summit of

Coliseum Mountain near Nordegg.

The group lucked out and had beautiful

weather, which made the

challenging hike more enjoyable. The

entire group made it to the summit and

although there was some smoke

obscuring the views, they enjoyed

some time on the summit before

making their way back down and back

to camp for the evening.

The second last day of the trip

included a morning hike across the

North Saskatchewan River by way of a

suspension bridge and a journey along

the Siffleur River before arriving at

Siffleur Falls for a lunch break.

In the afternoon, they travelled into

Jasper National Park to visit the

Columbia Icefields. The group completed

both; a hike to the base of the

Athabasca Glacier where they

observed how much the glacier has

receded in recent decades, and a visit

to the interpretive center.

The last day of the field trip, June

1st, was a full day of breaking camp

and the long road back to Castor.

The group was very fortunate to

have great weather throughout the trip

and the students were able to share

multiple favourite moments with the

younger students upon their return to

school on June 3.

This hopefully would put them out of

sight and out of mind.

The reservations were a communal

system where everyone owns everything,

and no one owns anything

except their own personal chattels.

This made them second class citizens

on their own land and until there

is a major change wherein they have

the same property and participation

rights as everyone else in Canada,

many of them will continue to live in

poverty and will still be vulnerable to

the exploitation that has gone on for

Vermilion on Thurs. May 30.

Grade 9 student Loren Mitchell was

pleased with the Provost meet. “It was

a very hot day but the breeze was

nice,” he said.

Mitchell placed first in javelin that

day, and he went on to achieve a gold

medal finish in javelin at the finals

competition the following week.

Hayden McQuaid, also in Grade 9,

achieved gold in Provost in the 800m


“It took a lot of work to get first, but

there was a lot of good competition,

and it was fun to hang with friends

from other schools,” said McQuaid.

Wild and crazy hairdos

by K. Smawley

With nine-tenths of the year complete,

the Grade 5 math class is

studying fractions and decimals right

now. The staff and students at

Theresetta are feeling the annual

“crunch time” pressure but also

enjoying the warmer weather and

looking forward to all the usual year

end activities.

Swimming lessons during gym

classes started after the May long

weekend. Students are enjoying

walking to the pool and splashing

around two times a week while

learning some new strokes and skills.

The Cosmetology class, a junior high

option class this term, hosted their

mothers or grandmothers on May 10

for some mother-daughter manicures.

The group had a great time showing

off their newly learned cosmo skills to

their relative in appreciation for what

they do.

May 10 was also the date of the

second and last Jr. High Dance hosted

by the Theresetta Students Union.

Terry Howe provided the DJ music.

Crazy Hair Day took place on May

14. The Spirit Day was a fun day for

students and teachers to express a

more unruly side of themselves. There

were wild and crazy hairdos that

included backwards ponytails,

extremely messy buns, and even some

brightly coloured dos.

Spirit Days are always a fun way to

turn just a regular school day into a

special day.

The Kindergarten class cooked up

some scrumptious hot dogs for their

Massive fishing derby turnout

by Debbie Laughlin

The Youngstown Fishing Derby was

well attended with 204 participants

registered to fish during the day.

It was a beautiful day, but those

fishing claimed that the fish were not

biting that well.

After a slow start to the day, some

fish were finally being brought in.

In total, only 30 fish were brought in

to be weighed in the competition.

The overall winner with the largest

rainbow trout was Russell Saunders

bringing in a 2.55 pound fish.

Saunders chose a generator as his

prize from a large assortment of prizes.

The top three winners in the adult

category were: John Murray with a

2.45 lb. fish in first place; 2nd to Clive

Scott with a 2.40 lb. fish; and 3rd to

John Molzan with a 2.10 lb. fish.

In the junior division, the top three

winners were: Colby Scott with a 1.40

lb. fish; 2nd to Leach Elle with a 0.90 lb.

fish; and 3rd to Harlow Fraser with a

0.75 lb. fish.

A total of 21 prizes were available to

be won. The winner of the $100 cash

prize for the most Carp caught was

Jason Hall with a total catch of 23.

Clive Scott, being a winner from last

year, generously donated an additional

$150 towards next year’s Carp prize.

From all reports, it was a successful

and enjoyable day and we hope to see

you at next year’s Derby!

Coronation Minor Ball held their Sports Day on Sat. June 8 in Coronation. Seth Thies went up
