Project dollars and cents not adding up

Joyce Webster

ECA Review

Dollar amounts for several projects

were estimated at Morrin’s special

budget meeting as quotes requested by

motions as far back as January were

not available.

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)

Annette Plachner.

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

the agenda.

“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,”

stated Plachner.

“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,”

replied Helton.

“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.

Is the budget set in stone?

Cont’d from Pg 1

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,”

answered Plachner.

A back and forth conversation highlighted

the miscommunication

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,”

said Plachner.

“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

the mayor.

“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.

Paving project

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

pavement patching.

“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

paving project.

“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

CAO Plachner,

“Paving repairs is the big one, how

are we doing the budget [without

these quotes]. How much is that

[paving repairs]?”

“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

discussion ensuing.

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

Daryl DeMille.

“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

Dennis Schoonderbeek.

“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.

Plachner package

and CAO assistant

Council motioned to hire an assistant

CAO and budgeted $40,000 for the


“So again these projects, including

the CAO package and an estimate for

an assistant CAO to be hired would

then, in this budget, have to come out of

that Unrestricted [Surplus],” asked


“No, where are we getting with this

other CAO? I’m not clear on that

either,” said Plachner,

“Well, we are going to hire an assistant

CAO for the transition,” said


“Why is that?” asked Plachner,

“You’ve more than indicated that you

are retiring,” said Helton, “Somebody

has to be ready. We have to hire

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

this person can come out of operating.”

“That’s what this meeting is all

about,” said Helton. “We needed a prebudget

meeting to get these things

worked out.”

“We want to make sure we have

enough money in operating budget to

do that,” added Coun. Edwards.

“I’m thinking $40,000 would be

enough, give or take,” said CAO

Hanna Farmers Market rental subsidy

Peggy Rehill, a member of the

Hanna Farmers Market

Committee appealed to Hanna

town council for a subsidized

rental agreement for their

weekly market at the Hanna

Curling Rink.

At the regular Hanna council

meeting on Tues. June 11,

council granted them a rate of

$271.35 plus tax per week compared

to $405 plus tax for the

market in May.

“The Hanna Farmers Market

have originally been located at

the Round Up Centre but have

parted ways with the owners,”

said Chief Administrative

Officer (CAO) Kim Neill.

“While there are not a ton of

alternative locations in Hanna

for a farmers market, the town

The Community Standards Bylaw

was passed in the second and final

readings by a vote of 4 - 1 at the regular

council meeting on Mon. June 10.

Coun. Vickey Horkoff voted against

the motion.

This change was in response to a

concern that had been raised

regarding who is responsible for the

maintenance for boulevards and

maintenance standards.

The new bylaw states that the boulevard

adjacent to the land owner or

occupant must keep any grass cut and

remove accumulation of fallen leaves

and other debris.

Fines are $50 for first offence, $100

for second offence within the same

year, and $200 in third and subsequent

offences within one year.

Grade 6 class visit

class attended the council meeting as

They came armed with questions

and ideas for council.

One issue raised was the unsafe

Chief Administrative Officer (CAO)

Sandra Kulyk explained to the class

regarding costs involved in removing

these buildings.

An example she gave was the large

house on the corner Norfolk Avenue

and Arthur Street in Coronation

where the attic caved in spreading

asbestos throughout the entire house.

“We had a company come in and

give us an estimate,” said CAO Kulyk.

“Every bit [of powdered asbestos] has

to be gathered up, bagged, hauled

away, then they have to vacuum, bag

that up and haul it away and then they

have to put glue on any surface of

wood or hard surface and then they

can tear it down.

“They were talking over $100,000 to

do that,” she concluded.

“Trust me,” said Mayor Mark

Stannard, “if we could take all of them

down, we would,” added Mayor


Other issues discussed included

making the dock at the Coronation

dam more stable and bigger so more

people could be on them at one time;

an off leash two-part pet park for not

only dogs, but cats too; having a bigger

GaGa pit as classrooms use the one

located near the swimming pool and it

would be nicer to have a

bigger one so lots of kids

could play and a second one

on grass so that knuckles

don’t get scraped.

“That one was $600 and it

was donated to the town

from the FCSS,” said Mayor


Coun. Horkoff found that

bigger ones are available.

She questioned the class if

it would be better to have

A Picture of You

I only have a picture now,

A frozen piece of time,

To remind me of how it was,

When you were here, and mine.

I see your smiling eyes,

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.

Clawing for leftovers

ECA Review

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.

Corporations have

no obligation to keep

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

middle class.

Alberta got rich when Premier Peter

Lougheed was elected in 1971 and significantly

increased royalty rates

(taxation) on oil and gas. His priority

was to get Albertans to not only be the

owners, but act like owners of their

natural resources.

Yet after 50 years of intensive development

in the oil sands and billions of

dollars of cash generation, we’ve never

had enough money in the public coffers

to complete a four-lane highway to

Alberta’s cash cow—Fort McMurray.

Inconceivably, Alberta during the

boom years didn’t have enough money

to build schools and hire teachers to

accommodate the bulging population

growth. Alberta did not have enough

money to build medical capacity for a


growing population but instead normalized

long, protracted wait lists for

necessary surgeries.

Alberta didn’t even have enough

money to keep municipalities whole. It

wasn’t that many years ago when

many bridges had reached critical

failure rates in much of rural Alberta.

Calgary, the headquarters of this

booming industry, never had the

resources to invest in an adequate

transportation system leaving its citizens

in gridlock.

The corporate tax race to the bottom

allowed the multi-nationals to amass

the lion’s share of the profits from our

oil sands. It wasn’t their responsibility

to build roads, bridges, schools and

hospitals or fund police, doctors and


Corporations have no obligation to

keep their oversized financial gains

earned in Alberta here nor to reinvest

and create and sustain jobs

during a bust cycle.

Therein lays the problem with the

voodoo economics of low corporate


Scandinavian countries have

always held that a prosperous country

requires a high level of public investment

in education, infrastructure,

basic research, technology, health and

protection. In fact, investments by our

governments in these areas during

the golden age of the middle class (1950

- 1980) also helped support private

investment and equitably grow the


The wrong of globalization was to

enable multi-national corporations and

the wealthy to move their earnings to

low-tax regimes away from the countries

where the actual wealth was


Some $300 billion of Canadian

wealth is today hoarded in offshore tax

havens and the two richest Canadians

their cash re-circulating in their own


Lougheed was the first and last

Premier to treat Albertans as owners

of their natural resources. As we were

under the Social Credit government in

the 1950s and 60s, we are again slaves

to the oil industry – blaming Ottawa

and clawing for leftovers as the

majority of our wealth flees outside

our borders.

It’s like giving a pig access to the

whole crib of corn and expecting some

to be leftover for tomorrow . . . and the

next day . . . and the next day.

Defending credentials

Dear Editor,

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

geography department.

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.

Enjoyed spending time with family

My mother Dorothy Yeats was born

on Jan. 27, 1927 on the farm near

Palmer, Sask.

Her parents Harry and Lilian Shave

were both originally from England.

Out of this marriage came seven children,

with Dorothy being the second

oldest child.

She attended Palmer

School up to Grade 12 then

completed 13 by


She continued her education

at St. Elizabeth’s

Hospital in Humboldt, Sask.

where they covered her

room and board, including a

monthly allowance of $6,

ultimately completing her Yeats

degree as a Registered


She worked one year at Mossbank

Hospital in Saskatchewan, then moved

to Coronation, Alta. to work at the hospital


My mother and father met at a dance

that took place at Whittaker School.

They were married on Oct. 27, 1952

and shortly after moved into the house

my dad built outside Coronation,

where he farmed.

I was the first born of three boys on

May 27, 1954, then came Alan on Mar.

14, 1964 and Donald on Oct. 21, 1966.

After many years of working at the

Coronation Hospital, my mom eventually

became the matron of the nursing

home until she retired.

She enjoyed spending time with her

grandchildren, Travis, Corey and


She had many different hobbies

including gardening, photography,

crafts and travelling whenever the

opportunity presented itself.

As time progressed, home care came

to the house with meals and to check

on her. Then one morning, when going

outside, her hip broke. Luckily Sanna

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

done fixing her hip, if he

wouldn’t mind fixing her

back. He took her hand and

said, “Dear, when you are reborn, we

will catch that on the second go


After her hip healed, we talked her

into going into the nursing home. It

was a struggle for a while until she got

to know people and made friends.

After a while, she needed more care

and attention so she went to Long-

Term Care where she has remained

until June 10, 2019.

Randy was born in Bonnyville, Alta.

on Nov. 20, 1960 and lived there for four

years before moving to a farm near

Forestburg, Alta.

Aside from finding mischievous

splendour, time well spent was often

found in farm-related chores and 4-H

activities, in which Randy was

involved for several years.

Randy was not noted to be a fan of

school and in Grade 11 he dropped out

halfway through the year and began a

lifelong journey working for a living.

Not afraid of hard work or trying

new things, Randy experienced many


different jobs in different places, from

road construction work in Bonnyville,

grain elevator work in Hanna, Alta., to

gravel crushing in Edmonton and

truck driving.

In July of 1978, Randy met his true

love, Wendy MacKay and

one year later was married

to his sweetheart on Aug. 3,

June 8 ribbon cutting for a CNR portable bunkhouse. The bunkhouse,

used in the Sunnyslope–Linden area from the 1930s to 1970s, was

donated to the Three Hills Museum by the late Jim Berry. With the help

of a $4,228 Kneehill County community grant to non-profit organizations

and ongoing restoration assistance from volunteers, the bunkhouse now

plays an active role in presenting county history. In addition to the ribbon

cutting, the museum welcomed many visitors to its annual pioneer times

demonstration day featuring rope making, printmaking, typesetting, and a

point-arrowhead display.

ECA Review

With 2019/2020 season fast

approaching, the Three Hills

Thrashers requested and received a

one year leave of absence from the

Heritage Junior Hockey League.

The decision was not made lightly

but the Thrasher board members felt

that by taking a year off from icing a

team, it would give them the opportunity

and time needed to build a

stronger board, build a more competitive

team and become a bigger part of

the community going forward.

The last few seasons have been difficult

for the team as a whole from

attracting players, attracting board

members and

being involved in

the community.

These are very

important elements

of having a

successful Jr. B


The board is

hopeful that this

will not be the

end of the

Thrashers, but a

new beginning as

they work hard

for the following

season to recruit

board members

and strengthen

the team.
