Project dollars and cents not adding up
Dollar amounts for several projects
were estimated at Morrin’s special
budget meeting as quotes requested by
motions as far back as January were
Prior to the start of the meeting held
on Tues. June 11, Mayor Howard
Helton asked “So do we have new
copies of the budget?”
“I never made any, no,” replied
Chief Administrative Officer (CAO)
Mayor Helton then passed out to residents
present in the gallery, copies of
the budget he had previously received
from the CAO that also included his
questions and remarks.
Mayor Helton again explained
according the Municipal Affairs Act
(MGA), why two items from the
agenda, setting the by-election
returning officer and election date at
the start of the meeting could not be
dealt with at the Special Meeting.
“We have to do that today,” said CAO
Plachner referring to those additions to
“We only have so much time to do
the by-election. You’re putting it
The by-election is a result of Coun.
Bob Graham resigning.
“I’m not putting anything behind.
That is the regulation set by the MGA.
I think we went over this a while ago.”
“But I sent this to you last week,”
“No, you didn’t send anything to do
with the agenda. I sent the agenda in,
in my capacity, for a special meeting
which I complied with the MGA,”
“When I got your email [setting the
special meeting], I sent it to you,” said
“That wasn’t the agenda, that was a
memo. I sent the agenda last
Thursday,” said Helton.
The MGA regulation states that all
items dealt with at a Special Meeting
must be on the agenda at the time the
Special Meeting is called.

discussion, Mayor Helton asked of
CAO Plachner, “In your opinion, are
we to expect that [budget] is the budget
set in stone, that we are to approve?”
“I would like you to, if you don’t
want taxes to be raised very high,”
A back and forth conversation highlighted
between Mayor Helton and CAO
Plachner as information and budget
amounts were missing or changed,
stalling the overall budget process.
“What happened to the fact that we
had no input in the budget despite special
meetings we had prior to this,
considering the projects that we made
resolutions for that we were going to
address, like the paving?” questioned
“We asked you to get quotes for the
paving, we asked you get quotes, in
particular the green space and in particular
the public works yard.”
“The green space quotes did not
“no, where are we
getting with this other
CAO? I’m not clear on that
either,” said Plachner.
come in, the paving quotes did not
come in,” said Plachner. “You can’t go
and drag people here to give them
quotes. They were phoned and asked to
come many times and they haven’t
“Well, I guess you have to phone the
right people that will come,” said
Helton in response. “This was started
two months ago and it’s taken two
months to coordinate some contractors
to get us quotes on these projects we’ve
outlined some months ago”.
“What would your suggestion be to
address those now because we want to
proceed with these projects?” asked
“Those are capital projects. They
would have to come out of Capital
[Budget], not the Operating,” stated
“How do we determine the future
now that nobody has gotten council a
quote?” stated Helton in frustration.
“You have quotes on the fencing,”
“I have no quotes on fencing,” said
The gallery had received the quote
in the package they picked up at the
beginning of the meeting.
“Where is it for me to review?” asked
“I sent them to you,” responded
“These magical things... It’s like the
agenda today and last meeting I don’t
have it until I get here. I got a different
agenda from what I sent. Last month I
had a different agenda than when I got
here, you told me you sent it to me.
What is going on?”
“I emailed them to you. Have you got
them M’Liss?” asked Plachner.
“Seems everybody else has?” said
Helton. “I wouldn’t be asking for a
quote if I had a quote. This is serious
“Yes, it is,” said Plachner.
“Indeed it is, and paving is a major
thing too,” said Helton.
Council had approved a motion on
April 17 to have MPE survey the levels
along the west side of the village to
determine how to improve the
drainage issue at the west entrance to
town where water pooling causes
potholes to pound out, before doing any
“There was a lot of misunderstanding
with MPE regarding the
lower end of main street,” said Mayor
“I don’t think they understand what
we were looking for,” said CAO
“Is there some way to contact them
and get more clarity so it could work in
with our plan to fix up that piece down
there [entrance to the village]?” queried
CAO Plachner promised to get that
to them by Wednesday and recommended
budgeting $75,000 for the
“The quote for the green space –
What kind of figure did we get for
levelling that, grassing it, putting in a
little fence and a couple items in
there?” asked Helton.
“Haven’t got that yet,” responded
“Paving repairs is the big one, how
are we doing the budget [without
these quotes]. How much is that
“I don’t know,” replied Plachner,
“It’s critical,” stated Helton.
“Well, if you want to leave it
[budget] till next Wednesday we can
pass it on Wednesday if I have this
for you, at least an idea,” said
“We can do the final passage on
Wednesday,” chimed in Coun. M’Liss
“Well, we have to because we have to
get the taxes done. It’s getting late,”
said CAO Plachner.
Recycle bins relocation
Council estimated $30,075 for the
public works space although they did
not have the drawings showing the
dimensions that was requested in a
motion by council at the April 17
Plachner indicated that Dave Benci,
public works manager, took the concept
drawing done by Mayor Helton
and paced it out as to how you wanted
that fence to go rather than doing up a
formal dimensional drawing to scale
that had been requested by motion in
the April 17 regular council meeting.
Mayor Helton opened up the meeting
for comments from the gallery
regarding the recycling bins and
public works space with a great deal of
Council had planned for the relocation
of the bins to be the southeast
corner on town property.
The majority felt it would be better
located east of the unused tennis
courts although there is no developed
“Cheaper to build a road over there
than to put up a $40,000 fence,” stated
“Do we want them to be the focal
point of your village, people coming
into town and they look over the display
coming into town, over the ball
diamonds then we come to the public
works yard?” asked Helton.
“You are not going to offend any taxpayers
by putting it over there [next to
the unused tennis court],” said Wanda
“The aesthetics was to have a fence
and slats and trees so it doesn’t look
obtrusive,” said Helton.
“It was a dumping ground [before]
and they are afraid it will become a
dumping ground again,” said
Only concern that I kind of have is
about the road portion of it. It’s by the
ball diamonds and if there’s traffic
going by and there’s kids running all
over the place, back and forth to the
park, that’s my major concern,” said
“It’s a catch 22,” said DeMille.
The consensus of the gallery reached
was to put the recycle bins on the east
side of the old tennis court.
“To keep peace in the town, the
tennis court isn’t going to offend
anyone. Like Daryl said, plant some
trees”, said Wanda Hampton.
The green space was also discussed.

“Why is that?” asked Plachner,

someone to come in and work with you.
It’s obvious since last November, the
back and forth, we’re all familiar with
that, that you’re wanting to retire,
sooner than later, so that’s why we are
going to go ahead and hire an assistant.
“Okay, fine,” said Plachner. “Paying

“That’s what this meeting is all
about,” said Helton. “We needed a prebudget

“We want to make sure we have

“I’m thinking $40,000 would be

I only have a picture now,
A frozen piece of time,
To remind me of how it was,
When you were here, and mine.

Each morning when I wake,
I talk to you, and place a kiss,
Upon your lovely face.
How much I miss you being here,
I really cannot say,
The ache is deep inside my heart,
And never goes away.
I hear it mentioned often,
That time will heal the pain,
But if I’m being honest,
I hope it will remain.
I need to feel you constantly,
To get me through the day,
I loved you so very much,
Why did you go away?
The angels came and took you,
That really wasn’t fair,
They took my one and only Son,
My future life. My heir.
If only they had asked me,
If I would take your place,
I would have done so willingly,
Leaving you this world to grace.
You should have had so many years,
To watch your life unfold,
And in the mist of this,
Watch us all grow old!
I hope you’re watching from above,
At the daily tasks I do,
And let there be no doubt at all,
I really do love you.

It may come as a surprise to many of
my regular readers that I was once an
advocate for no corporate taxes. Upon
graduation with a Commerce degree
from the University of Alberta and
having studied all economic theories, I
favoured the supply-side, neo-liberal
economic model that corporate taxation
was a job killer.
In the academic world, it sounded
plausible that corporations without
taxes would use excess money to invest
and create more jobs.

their oversized financial
gains earned in Alberta
here nor to re-invest and
create and sustain jobs
during a bust cycle.
I could still argue that income taxes
for corporations whose entire operations
are located in Canada should
have relatively low corporate tax rates
as the vast sum of their earnings and
profits are recycling within
Canada. But with globalization and
the subsequent market power of multinational
corporations, low corporate
tax rate cuts have caused the rise of
inequality and the decline of the

In response to a letter titled, Fact
checking needed, June 13, pg. 6, that
criticized and disputed Dr. Tim Ball’s
academic credentials and claimed that
people need to check their facts – let me
set the record straight.
I am respectfully speculating that
the author has gone to Wikipedia and
or the infamous horribly biased
DesmogBlog for his information.
So to clarify, yes, it is true that Dr.
Ball was a professor of geography at
the University of Winnipeg, but the
author ignored the fact that his Ph.D.
was in historical climatology and he
indeed is qualified to speak as an
“expert” on climatology and the
Here is an excerpt from an article
Dr. Ball wrote in 2011 called “Ad
hominem” from his own website: “I am
accused of being a geographer as if
that is a sin and somehow belittles my
“When I got my degree in climatology
in 1982 from Queen Mary
College at the University of London,
there were very few climate research
centres in the world. Two of the top
ones were Hubert Lamb’s Climatic
Research Unit (CRU) at East Anglia
and Reid Bryson’s Climate Centre in
“Logically, the only department at
the University of Winnipeg in which to
place a climatologist was geography,
since climatology was then a half of
what was called physical geography.
“There was a climate lab and office
complex separate from the geography
department (two floors higher).
“Professor Bill Bell, who became
State Climatologist in Georgia, occupied
it first; and when he left, I moved
into the complex and ran the climate
So there was, in fact, a separate
entity and facility related to climate.”
So the Wikipedia article on Dr. Ball
is guilty of omission, not commission.
It does not lie when it says he was a
professor of geography at the
University of Winnipeg, but it does
omit the fact that his doctorate was in
climatology and that his career was
spent teaching and researching in the
field of climatology from within the
I would encourage people to read the
whole article called “Ad Hominem” at
In addition to defending his academic
credentials, he has some
interesting information about the
people behind the Desmogblog, namely
their connections to the federal Liberal
Party and the David Suzuki
It took me less than five minutes to
find this and related information by
searching the words “Dr. Tim Ball academic
credentials” (not on Google,
though; but that is another issue!).
I do not wish to be too critical.
It is very easy to be influenced by
biased information on the internet that
only tells half the story and I commend
him for making the effort to investigate
the climate change issue and
write a letter about it.

Olson found her and called the ambulance,
so off to Red Deer we go.
Mom pretty well went directly into
surgery, so I was with her just
outside the operating room
where the nurses were prepping
the patients. Out of a
room came a surgeon who
walked over to mom and
talked to her about what was
going to happen.
After he was done, she
asked him if when he was

After her hip healed, we talked her
into going into the nursing home. It
was a struggle for a while until she got

until June 10, 2019.
