A fire broke out in the Sedgewick

Public School on Wed. evening, Aug.

14.

Approximately 30 firefighters from

Sedgewick, Hardisty and Killam

attended the scene as well as EMS and

RCMP.

Killam Fire Chief Joe Knievel

reported that no one was injured

during the blaze and that a cause has

yet to be determined.

Initial knockdown of the fire took

roughly 15 minutes but crews did not

leave the scene until 10:30 p.m.

Fire inspectors, structural engineers,

electrical engineers, air quality

specialists and other people will be

visiting the school to inspect all

aspects of the facility.

“They will help us determine the

extent of damage and the repairs that

are needed. Our preliminary information

indicates that the fire was

contained mostly to the roof of the elementary

wing,” said Klassen.

The interior of the elementary area

has suffered water damage.

The entire school smells like smoke.

“Over the next few days we will support

the investigators in doing their

work and begin to put plans in place

for making the necessary repairs,

based on their findings,” he said.

The safety of students and staff is a

top priority.

He continued, “Right now, our

expectations for the first day of school

on September 3 are: The high school

and junior high sections of the school

should be available for use, as long as

we can ensure the air quality is

acceptable. We will have a plan for elementary

students.”

Timelines for repair should become

clear next week.

“A lot of things can happen in a few

weeks, so our plans will evolve as

classrooms are cleaned and repaired.

We will continue to share updates

through our School Messenger program

and our school website as new

information becomes available,” said

Klassen.

Sarah Fibke-Van Heinen of Consort,

Alta., a newly married junior high

school teacher, came to council to

present on land acknowledgements and

treaties between settlers and aboriginal

peoples.

It was requested at a prior meeting

that council look closer into the topic to

see if they will participate in what

some other municipalities do, a land

acknowledgement, and to be better

informed.

This statement is read before each

meeting as well as large scale events in

urban centres to “acknowledge the

land is an expression of gratitude and

appreciation to those whose territory

we reside on and a way of honouring

the indigenous people who have been

living and working on the land from

time immemorial.”

Fibke-Van Heinen is of settler

descent and teaches Canadian history

in-depth.

She went through a brief but thorough

history of the Indian Act and

what came of it including residential

schools and most recently the creation

of the Truth and Reconciliation

Commission who is tasked with

revealing wrong-doing by a government

in the hopes of resolving issues

left over from the past.

“I believe it’s important to foster a

culture of acceptance, tolerance and

even a love for diversity. I think the

best opportunity we have to embrace

an inclusive culture is knowledge and

understanding of those who are different

than us,” said Fibke-Van Heinen.

This reconciliation is meant to

honour both First Nations and settlers

to the area.

When Fibke-Van Heinen was about

to recite the land acknowledgement,

Coun. Lynn Schultz spoke up and

declined to have it read.

A very good

day, indeed

OPINION

The opinions expressed are not necessarily

the opinions of this newspaper.

B. Schimke

ECA Review

August 14, 2019 was a good day for

Canadians and Canadian democracy

when Ethics Commissioner, Mario

Dion, found Prime Minister Trudeau

used his position of authority over

former Justice Minister Jody Wilson-

Raybould in an effort to convince her

to halt the criminal prosecution of

SNC-Lavalin.

For the Prime Minister’s conflict of

interest to be exposed, it required more

than Dion and Wilson-Raybould. The

other players were Jane Philpott, the

often-maligned free press and former

Prime Minister Paul Martin


We need to be

proud and protective of

the ethical leadership

shown by this select

group of civil servants,

elected officials,

journalists and lawyers

who stood up for the

rule of law.

The Prime Minister’s misdeeds

would never have seen the light of day

if not for one of Canada’s top dailies,

the Globe and Mail. They broke the

story through hard work, verifiable

facts, real informants and a team of

investigative reporters.

Ethics Commissioner, Mario Dion,

simply gave all Canadians a lesson in

ethics, not only by exposing the Prime

Minister, but also by doing his job.

A lesser man may not have had the

moxie to expose the man who just last

year appointed him to the position of

Ethics Commissioner. A lesser man

may have been inclined to soften the

report given that he is a Quebecor

where SNC-Lavalin is an economic

giant.

Yet Dion, a retired lawyer with a

long career in public service, showed

us all that those who serve the people

do have a higher calling than politics

and their political masters.

Former Prime Minister, Paul Martin

is in the story because it was his government

in April 2004 that passed

legislation making the Ethics

Commissioner an independent Officer

of the House of Commons. The importance

of that reporting relationship

change is clearly evidenced today. Pre-

2004, the report would have gone to the

Prime Minister where it could have

been sanitized, redacted or completely

hidden.

Wilson-Raybould, lawyer, former

crown prosecutor and former regional

chief of the Assembly of First Nations

believes in Liberal values, but she

chose to harm her political career and

her political party in the fall election

rather than compromise the law, truth

or her ethics. Sitting by to watch the

soul of the Liberal Party and parliamentary

democracy weaken was not

an option.

Jane Philpott, a former physician, a

profession where ethics is also drilled

into your soul, could not stomach the

cover up nor the treatment dished

out to Wilson-Raybould by the Prime

Minister and fellow Liberal

colleagues.

This story goes further than Prime

Minister Justin Trudeau, however. It

is unfortunately another example of

how much pressure elected politicians

are under to kowtow to Big Corporate.

And we must remind ourselves that

it’s hard for Canadian corporations to

be competitive when deferred prosecution

agreements, which was at the

heart of the cover up and conflict of

interest affair with SNC-Lavalin, are

readily used in the United States,

Great Britain, Singapore and France.

These countries all enable criminallycharged

corporations, such as

SNC-Lavalin, to get-out-of jail via

deferred prosecution agreements.

We need to be proud and protective

of the ethical leadership shown by this

select group of civil servants, elected

officials, journalists and lawyers who

stood up for the rule of law. But we also

need to be mindful that until the voters

become the politician’s bosses again

rather than Big Corporate, this behaviour

will not stop.

Be assured equivalent pressure will

one day be applied by yet another corporation

to yet another Prime Minister

or Premier.

And next time, we may not have a

Jody Wilson-Raybould or a Jane

Philpott willing to take a personal

bullet for the public good or an Ethics

Commissioner, appointed by the Prime

Minister, with the guts to do his job

rather than the Prime Minister’s

bidding.


MAIL BAG

Not in my books!

Dear Editor,

I believe the author of “Stop worrying

about Trump, pg. 2, Aug. 8 issue,

must see the world through “rosecoloured

glasses”.

Why?

According to him, Trump is the

greatest leader in the world.

Amazing statement!

Since Trump has been in office, the

US national debt has increased by over

$2 trillion dollars, and that debt stands

at over $33 trillion dollars.

So much for a man who claimed he

would “drain the swamp” and balance

the budget.

What Trump excels in is bankruptcies

(has had at least four), lying

(Trump University), creating scandals

(more than Warren Harding, Herbert

Hoover, or Richard Nixon), cheating

(on his previous two wives and possibly

on his taxes), a draft dodger (five

times during the Vietnam War).

He also excels in cozying up to the

most vicious tyrants in the world

(North Korea, Russia, and Saudi

Arabia), for causing division within

American society (worse than Richard

Nixon), and for causing trade wars

with numerous countries.

Consequently, Americans are

having to pay more for good and services,

and now American farmers/

ranchers can’t sell their grain, pork

and beef to China.

Yup! A great man, eh?

Not in my books!

Trochu, Alta.

New Fish and Wildlife

officer posted

Eileen Morrill

ECA Review

Levi Neufeld, the new Fish and

Wildlife Officer for east central

Alberta spoke with Hanna Town

Council at the Aug. 13 meeting.

Neufeld was attracted to the position

as he had grown up in the small town

of Pincher Creek, Alta. so he was

delighted with his appointment to

Hanna.

It may be difficult to find Neufeld in

the Hanna office as he usually runs a

computer out of his truck and will be

working both day and night hours,

weekdays and weekends to, among

other things, watch for poachers and

trespassers and illegal use of drugs

and alcohol.

In recent years rules have changed

for Fish and Wildlife Officers in the

Province of Alberta.

They are now fully appointed Peace

Officers with the same power as an

RCMP Officer.

Fish and Wildlife Officers work to

uphold public safety.

One of the modern tools Neufeld

uses to support public safety is a drone.

He also has full access to forensic

labs.

Fish and Wildlife services has

stepped away from loaning traps to

catch small animals and now trap

aggressive animals like coyotes and

bears.

At the Hanna Office, administration

is only available on a part-time basis.

Coun. Gerald Campion welcomed

Neufeld and his family to Hanna and

Mayor Warwick encouraged Neufeld

to contact council if he has any issues

in the future.

Neufeld will manage the territory

from the Red Deer River near Hanna,

to the Blood Indian Reservoir, up to

Coronation over to Drumheller and

back down to the Red Deer River.

Neufeld’s last posting was at

Barrhead, Alta., located north west of

Edmonton.

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB AuguST 22'19 3

Renewable Energy Group moves forward

Eileen Morrill

ECA Review

The Climate Change Task Force, a

group designed to help create prosperous

opportunities for the town of

Hanna was disbanded as of Thurs.

Aug. 20.

Chief Administrative Officer (CAO)

Kim Neill reported on the disbanding

of the Climate Change Task Force at

the regular Hanna town council

meeting on Aug. 13.

The Task Force solved any outstanding

issues, including

disbursement of the remaining funds

from the Coal Transition Fund Grant.

The Renewable Energy Group of the

task force will continue to spend considerable

time negotiating a transfer of

all or part of the funds awarded

through the Emissions Reduction

Alberta (ERA) Best program for a

large solar project to a potential

Community Generation Project in the

region.

The profits from this project would

go towards an economic development

fund for the region.

They will also be working with CWL

Energy Management on Phase II of the

Municipal Community Generation

Challenge Project.

Hanna is one of 39 municipalities

that was accepted into this challenge

through Phase I and the town has submitted

an Expression of Interest

Application for Phase II of the

program.

“Hanna has been working in partnership

with CWL Energy Group,

SAIT and Special Areas Board (SAB)

on a hydrogen fuel project,” said CAO

Neill. “This project has the potential

to spin off into manufacturing opportunities

for this region.

“They are also working with CWL

Energy Management, Westmoreland

and Special Areas Board (SAB) on the

Community Generation Capacity

Building Project,” replied Neill when

asked about funding dollars by Coun.

Beaudoin.

The Task Force has received grants

to help with economic development

and after the meeting on Aug. 20, a

report on the dispersal of grant

monies received to date will be made

available to Council.

representatives from the

Federal Government

including Minister of

representatives from other

communities affected by

coal generation shutdowns.

Monies earmarked in the

2018-2019 and 2020-2021

Federal budgets for infrastructure

projects for

communities affected by

coal was the topic of

discussions.

Coun. Deadlock reported

that this was an information

gathering meeting with

communities exploring the

possibility of transporting

crops by rail between Oyen

and Hanna, setting up a livestock

hub at Hanna, and the

creation of industrial parks

closer to Edmonton.

Mayor Warwick said that

after the meeting he had

received an email indicating

that they will be contacting

each community in the

future to get more detail

regarding these projects.

CAO Neill reported MPE

Administration has

recommended to construct a

cost of $82,000.

This 12m wide road allowance

would allow semi

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB AuguST 22'19 5

BIG VALLEY COUNCIL

Two Big Valley councillors resign

Cont’d from Pg 1

After the history lesson on the negative

impacts of residential schools on

the indigenous population, Fibke-Van

Heinen recommended visiting the

Truth and Reconciliation Commission

website where multiple video interviews

have been created to further

relay the experiences individuals had.

“But I think what we are hearing is

just the negative side of it,” said Deputy

Mayor Rosella Peterman.

“My cousin and I pastored a native

church for a number of years and we

have spent time on the reserve in

homes when we went back to visit. We

have a number of friends who went to

residential schools who said those were

the happiest years of their lives and we

never hear that side of it.”

She continued, “I don’t for one

minute doubt that there was horrible

things that happened but there was

also a lot of good things so we need to

have a more balanced view of this

rather than just all of the horrible

things.”

“How about I come in and teach a

full lesson?” jokingly replied

Fibke-Van Heinen.

On a more serious note, she said, “I

only had 20 minutes and quite frankly

in regards to land acknowledgements

the good stuff that happened, and

make no doubt, it was much smaller in

comparison to the number of people

who experienced abuse but yes people

had excellent experiences in residential

schools.

“Keep in mind they were also ripped

from their families who were fully

capable of caring for them.”

Peterman replied, “They weren’t

ripped from their families in this case.

They were large families that couldn’t

look after their children who actually

had other people in the community

looking after their children and

weren’t well cared for.

“We get fed one picture all of the

time and that isn’t the only picture,”

said Peterman.

Fibke-Van Heinen felt that the negatives

were often pushed to the side and

glossed over.

After a brief pause for another

agenda item, council launched into a

discussion about the presentation they

had heard.

Chief Administrative Officer (CAO)

Theresa Fuller began by noting there

was a larger

native population

in the Bashaw

area than one

would expect.

“We may think

that off the cuff

there is not many

of them in this

area so why

should we bother

but I am informed

that we do have

some indigenous

families residing

in the area and so

we have the

luxury of being a

prevalently white

council and prevalently

white

operation as well

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Two Big Valley councillors have

resigned from council for various

reasons.

Chief Administrative Officer (CAO)

Priscilla Brown resigned from her

in the town of Bashaw.

“My view is that if we don’t at least

give this a bit more consideration that

we could be skewed as the other side of

the spectrum as non-inclusive,” said

CAO Fuller.

Mayor Penny Shantz mentioned she

had attended a Truth and

Reconciliation committee presentation

in Edmonton where it was “very

insightful and gave a different

perspective.”

She asked council to put more

thought into their possible decision.

“I don’t really care what people

think if I’m racist. I’m not.” began

Coun. Lynn Schultz.

“I worked with native people where I

was before. I have hired native people

and I got along very well with them.

“One of the people I worked with ran

to be chief of the Blood Indian Reserve.

What I have a problem with is [that]

they have their land and we have ours

and residential schools and everything

I realize were in lots of cases not good

but we are always looking back.

“Let’s look forward and see what we

can do to make this better. And I don’t

think recognizing that this was once

aboriginal ground is a way to move forward,”

said Schultz.

Coun. Darren Pierson did not

comment.

Deputy Mayor Peterman as well as

Coun. Rob McDonald voiced neutral

opinions.

“I’m really okay either way. I don’t

think it has a lot of meaning if we come

into council and say that because we

are just saying it to each other. We are

not saying it to anybody or really

acknowledging it to anybody. On the

other hand, doesn’t really matter to me

one way or the other,” said Peterman.

Schultz was skeptical of the contents

of the treaty and how biased the story

or residential school experiences are.

“I think lots of times too there is a lot

of things in the treaty, a lot of things

that I don’t know and we only hear the

one side of the story. We never hear

about what else is in the treaty,” said

Schultz.

“I think Sarah told us a lot of what

else is in the treaty today,” said administrator

Andrea Benoit.

“Look into the treaty and see,” said

Schultz.

“I have,” said Benoit. “A lot.”

“There is a lot more in there than we

position, leaving a vacancy in staff.

Mayor Sandra Schell applied for the

position and got the job but in the process

was also required to resign as

mayor to do so.

“I had to transition and resign from

my position on council to become the

CAO,” said Schell. “It just kind of happened

all at once.”

Coun. Dwayne Grover resigned “due

to personal reasons” according to

Schell.

Remaining is Coun. Harry Nibourg.

A date for the by-election has yet to

be determined.

Restrictions loosen on fireworks

have heard and what we do hear. I’m

not getting into an argument in

council,” concluded Schultz.

Council, at the request of Coun.

McDonald, went into an in-camera session

without a defined section under

the Municipal Government Act (MGA).

No motions came from the meeting

but it did last 22 minutes in total.

The MGA specifically notes contentious

issues must be in the public eye

and never in a closed session.

“It wasn’t in alignment with the due

process of the MGA,” said CAO Fuller

in a post-meeting interview with the

ECA Review.

Procedural information will be

given at the next meeting for council

review.The conversation has been

tabled to a future meeting.

Fireworks bylaw

Administration came to council with

a few changes in the fireworks bylaw,

one of which loosens restrictions when

it comes to buying, selling, and storing

fireworks within Bashaw.

They proposed removing this section

to give businesses the ability to sell and

carry fireworks.

Discharging fireworks within town

limits would still be prohibited.

Businesses, if interested in selling,

will need to supply proof of compliance

from the Canadian National Fireworks

Association to ensure education has

been absorbed before selling.

The town would have the ability to

check in on businesses on a request

basis as well.

“Basically it means we can work it in

conjunction with the Canadian

National Fireworks Association where

we can obligate the seller to ensure

they store things the proper way and

also have some educational components

for firework sales.”

Administration

will provide a copy

of the bylaw to

interested businesses

who

request it.

They would in

turn call the

national association

to make sure

their space is

appropriate for

selling and

storing.

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB AuguST 22'19 7

Central Alberta Business Centre opens in Stettler

Stettler’s first co-working space

opened as a new business centre on

Mon. Aug. 19.

Owner Wendy Rairdan moved to

Stettler with her husband Bryan and

son, Asa, just a year ago.

Her husband Bryan grew up in

Stettler and when they had the chance

to “come home” they jumped at the

opportunity to be part of the

community.

Wendy has been a Web Designer and

supporter of small business since 2011

and it didn’t take her long to realize

that Stettler was in a unique position

to be a hub for business happenings in

central Alberta.

“We have home-based businesses,

small and large local businesses, as

well as mobile workers travelling

through Stettler, and they need a place

to meet, collaborate and work.

“We have a wonderful community

but we needed a place to build a business

community,” Rairdan said.

Rairdan met with Dan Sych of Hay

Lakes, Alta. in January to discuss his

professional building on 44th Avenue.

“Dan had this beautiful professional

building with no business in it and I

had a business plan and no building.

We hit it off and started working

together,” she continued.

Sych bought the building in 2013 as

an investment.

“When I met with Wendy I liked her

idea and felt like she had a good plan,”

began Sych.

“You can’t be around her and not be

excited about the business centre. She

has worked very hard to bring this

project forward to the community. The

mix of long term professional offices

Stettler’s first co-working space held a

grand opening of their new business

centre on Mon. Aug. 19.

surrounding a co-work space makes

for a great synergy and offers something

for all professionals.”

Central Alberta Business Centre

boasts the first co-working space in

Stettler.

“You just buy a day pass, weekly

pass or monthly pass, sit down with

your laptop and get to work,” says

Rairdan.

“You have access to all the office

equipment you need, high speed wifi

and the coffee is always on. There is no

overhead or long-term commitments.

The space is seen as a perfect hub for

workers of all kinds.

“It gets home-based businesses off

their dining tables, gives consultants a

place to land when going through

town, provides overflow workspace to

larger companies and offers numerous

supports to start-ups.”

“The Central Alberta Business

Centre will be a great resource in our

community as entrepreneurs and

small businesses look to expand their

operations.”

Stacey Benjamin of the Stettler

Board of Trade said, “The co-working

space and shared administrative support

allows individuals an opportunity

to get a bit of help and network while

moving their business to the next

stage.”

support services you could need

are in-house.

“If someone needs help with their

computer, requires web design, bookkeeping

is pop in my office across the hall,”

said Rairdan.

OBITUARY

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB AuguST 22'19 9

Enjoyed working so much he retired three times

Albert Hawkins was born in

Bracken, Sask. on Feb. 17, 1930 to

Susan and James Hawkins.

He was the sixth child of 10 in the

family.

Albert is survived by sister

Hazel Tillman, daughter

Bonnie (Tom) McCrindle,

son Brian (Dixie) Hawkins,

grandchildren: Jenn

McCrindle (Dave Normore),

Leah (Mike) Ullyot, Tomi

(Jesse) Turnbull, Chris

Hawkins, Garrett McCrindle

(Desyane Yanuar), Janine

Hawkins (Clay Wolbert). Hawkins

He is also survived by

great-grandchildren: Hailey Imeson,

Lukas Klatt, Leila and Van Turnbull

and Erik Normore; and his chosen

companion Jean Anderson and her

children: Wanda Turner, Julie

Paschke, Lorna (Ron) Petersen, Wes

(Vicki) Anderson and Brad (Elaine)

Anderson and their families;

Albert is also survived by his sisters-in-law:

Helen Hawkins, Sharon

Hawkins, Maureen (Rudy) Storek,

Linda (Gordon) Nielsen, Carol

Cameron, Lorraine (Eric) Anderson

and Helen Ambury; numerous nieces,

nephews and other family and friends.

Albert was predeceased by his wife

Louise Hawkins, parents Susan and

James Hawkins, his siblings: Barney

Hawkins, Gertie (Claude) Grayling,

Jean (Vic) Willard, Paddy Hawkins,

Clarence (Dorothy) Hawkins,

Margaret (Sam) Finkbeiner, Harold

(Merle) Hawkins and Kenny Hawkins,

brother-in-law Larry Ambury and

sister-in-law Barb (Russell) Lafrentz.

When Albert was very young, the

family moved to the Rolling Hills district

to farm where they homesteaded.

Albert was about 12-years-old when

his father passed away, resulting in

his mother having to raise 10 kids on

her own in addition to all of the

farming.

Times were tough but they pulled

together and became a very close-knit

family.

The older boys found jobs and sent

money home to help the family out.

Albert quit school and got his first

job when he was only 14-years-old.

As luck would have it, he got to

operate heavy equipment.

Operating equipment was the purpose

of his life.

Albert was doing road construction

in the Marble Canyon area when he

met a young lady.

Her name was Louise Ambury.

They were married on Sept. 6, 1958

and settled in Calgary.

Bonnie was born in 1959 to round

out their joy.

Brian joined the family in 1961.

At this time, Albert took his family

with him to live in camps while he

continued to build roads.

Albert was a pioneer in road construction

and helped to build the

Alberta infrastructure when there

was nothing from Jasper to Rainbow

Lake to Fort McMurray.

During road construction season,

the whole family lived in camp and in

the winter they would live on the farm

with his brother, Paddy.

Bonnie and Brian remember lots of

happy memories from this time when

they were surrounded by family.

Eventually, they had to put the kids

in school, so Louise moved to Alix,

Alta. and then Stettler while Albert

worked on the Highway 12 construction

by Stettler.

This was the start of Louise raising

the kids and Albert living on the road

during the week and living with the

family on the weekend.

Albert then started running a Cat,

building oilfield leases in the

Coronation area.

Even though Albert was away from

his family a lot to provide for them,

family was very important to him.

A few times a year, Albert

and the whole family would

pack up the car, go on the

road and visit relatives.

Albert enjoyed working so

much that he had to retire

three times until he finally

was able to quit at 75.

However, that made him

available to help Tom out on

the farm.

As with all families, they

start growing with the addition

of grandchildren and spouses.

Albert would do anything for his

grandkids.

He was very proud of all of his

grandchildren and the fact that he took

most of them for a ride in “Grandpa’s

Cat.”

He was even prouder to be a

great-grandpa.

Sale conducted by:

Louise passed away in 1999.

Albert had spent a lot of his life alone

on the road, and now he was even more

alone than he had ever expected.

He ended up in the apartment across

the hall from a lovely lady that would

become his friend and companion,

Jean Anderson.

Jean filled a void in Albert’s life that

no one else could.

They would get to spend their senior

years together for the next 15 years.

Their last day together was when

Albert passed away.

The family wishes to thank Points

West Living staff for their excellent

care, dignity and compassion given to

Albert.

Funeral services were held on Mon.,

Aug. 19, 2019 at Stettler Funeral Home

with Albert’s friend Keith Worth as

emcee.

Joan Rushton and LeeAnn

Kinderwater presented their gifts of

music and son-in-law Tom McCrindle

gave a loving tribute to all those in

Position Statement of Council

Background

In early 2019, Alberta Electric System Operators (AESO) provided notification

to County of Paintearth Council of future plans to expand the transmission infrastructure

within the county in response to an identified need to expand capacity

to meet future energy needs. The proposed project is identified as Central East

Transfer Out (CETO) Project. It is understood by the County that a submission

will be made to the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) in late 2019 with a

proposed route connecting infrastructure in Paintearth County to infrastructure

further west within the province.

AESO delivered a presentation to County Council in March of 2019, and as part

of a dialogue with local ratepayers, the County directed written correspondence

be sent to AESO for further information in May.

Council of the County of Paintearth has taken an active role in becoming informed

of the CETO project, and has participated in open houses hosted by

ATCO and AESO.

Council has received responses from all parties, and as indicated, has exercised

its right to provide input on the project as an impacted stakeholder.

In light of the County’s Municipal Development Plan (MDP), Council has requested

consideration of how the project may or may not have impacts on the

environment, public safety, and natural qualities of the areas potentially involved.

Council takes its position after having carefully reviewed information from project

engineers, environmental biologists, land use planners, local business owners,

area residents, and contracted fire protection providers.

Council Position Statement

It is the position of the County of Paintearth that greater preference be given to

the northernmost routes proposed for the Central East Transfer Out Project, however

the Council recognizes that the final decision on route selection will rest with

ATCO, derivative of their motives to provide a safe, efficient and cost-effective

project that will deliver increased capacity in the energy market for the province’s

electrical needs.

In taking this position, Council undertook the following considerations:

Public Safety Considerations

Residents have written to Council outlining a concern for public safety and the

risk of fire due to infrastructure design. Council inquired as to what safety considerations

were given to AESO and ATCO in a written letter on behalf of residents.

A reply from ATCO was received dated July 23, 2019.

Based on information provided by ATCO, the Council is of the understanding

that transmission infrastructure is designed by professional engineers to meet Alberta

Safety Codes and CSA standards, both of which take fire safety into consideration,

particularly with respect to clearance distances in which case CAN/CSA

C22.3 No. 1-10 “Overhead Systems” and AEUC 4th Edition (2013) guidelines

are followed.

Further, Council is of the understanding that ATCO crews routinely respond to

scenes of fire involving energized sites in order to make the scene safe for fire

crews to combat fires, as well as serving as advisors on technical aspects of their

infrastructure when larger-scale emergency incidents are taking place.

With respect to expansion of Tinchebray substation, an existing piece of infrastructure

within the County, Council has been informed that an expansion of the

gravel pad surrounding the site is part of project discussions, and Council is supportive

of any plans that reduce risk to the public.

Claims by members of the public have been made that firefighters “do not fight

fires in the coulee” and as a result, the County engaged with their contracted fire

service providers for a frank and open discussion about how wildfires in the

Paintearth coulee are handled. The County is pleased to confirm in speaking to

officers from both Castor and Coronation fire departments that firefighting tactics

do not preclude firefighters from fighting wildfires in the coulee, but rather fire

Proposed routes for CETO are shown in pink. Council for the County of Paintearth, having considered submissions from impacted parties, endorses the practise of selecting routes that provide the most

accessibility for emergency crews, make best use of existing utility corridors and minimize impacts to the environment. Council also endorses routes that have the least social and economic impact to local

businesses and the community. (Public maps accessed online at https://www.atco.com/en-ca/projects/central-east-transfer-out-transmission-project.html Image used with permission)


ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB AuguST 22'19 11

Regarding AESO CETO Project

crews and their commanding officers observe the typical tactical guidelines and

protocols followed by volunteer departments across the province, which are:

• Firefighter safety (Priority 1)

• Resident life safety (Priority 2)

• Preservation of property and natural flora thereafter (Priority 3)

Support arrangements are in place between fire departments with Westmoreland

Mine’s fire crew to provide resources if required to assist in fire suppression.

Tactics will vary depending on the severity of fire, wind and temperature conditions,

and availability of resources in the area for any responding department.

Furthermore, in regard to concerns that fires may occur in areas not easily accessible

by emergency response crews, Council draws attention to the aspect that

the northernmost route proposed runs within a pre-existing utility corridor along

Township Road 400, which is a designated major arterial road, meaning priority

is given to keeping this roadway clear and accessible for all types of traffic.

Environmental Considerations

In the County’s initial letter to AESO on what consideration was being given to

the County’s Municipal Development Plan, approved in 2004, a reference was

made to MDP Vol 1., Fig. 4.0 Environmentally Sensitive Areas map as indicating

a possible overlap of infrastructure within an ESA. ATCO has provided up to

date information which reflects that Tinchebray infrastructure will not fall within

an ESA, based on the 2014 provincial map data outlining boundaries for environmentally

sensitive areas.

The County Municipal Development Plan encourages the avoidance of creating

new utility right-of-ways where possible. It is evident from mapping information

provided by ATCO that the most northerly route will make efficient use

of existing utility corridors to minimize impacts to native pasture and arable land.

The County makes note of the fact that all proposed routes, use of existing rightof-ways

is also utilized wherever possible, offering minimal intrusion wherever

possible, and is supportive of this practice as it is consistent with values and

policies outlined in the County’s Municipal Development Plan. ATCO has confirmed

that they are mindful of the County MDP in their recent correspondence

back to the County and that proposed routes “integrate with existing linear disturbances

(roads, transmission lines, distribution lines)…”

In consultation with ATCO representatives at open houses, Council has come

to understand that ATCO’s field biologists are engaged in site assessments for

routes this summer with private landowners. ATCO has stated that private landowners

are encouraged to meet with ATCO representatives on their land, and to

provide access for biologists to make accurate assessments of areas the landowner

might deem sensitive to intrusion, either from a wildlife or natural ecosystem

perspective. The Council is supportive of this practise, as it provides clear and

accurate data for ATCO’s planning team to make determinations of any environmental

impacts that may require mitigation strategies. Open dialogue between

landowners and ATCO personnel is greatly encouraged by Council.

ATCO has indicated the results of environmental site assessments will be publicly

available once they have been communicated to Alberta Environment and

Parks in ATCO’s submission package to the Alberta Utilities Commission, and

Council is supportive of ATCO’s practice of sharing information in the spirit of

transparency and public accountability with regard to this project.

Economic and Social Considerations

Council has heard from a business, specifically a not-for-profit youth camp, which

has expressed the southerly route may have an impact on enrollment levels due to

a negative impact on the natural characteristics of the area, which serve to provide

a natural setting for the youth camp’s trail rides, one of the cornerstone programs

offered at the camp.

Council is appreciative of the presentation on the potential impacts to this organization,

made July 16, 2019 at a Regular Council Meeting, and felt that the dialogue

Paired transmission lines running along Highway 36 are shown within the County. Council is supportive

of pairing infrastructure with existing utility corridors to minimize environmental impacts.

between the delegates and Council provided clarity to the matter at hand. Council

feels that the impact to youth programming in the area, on equal par with the economic

importance of maintaining a thriving business within the local economy, are

important aspects of a sustainable community. The preference of the northerly routes

avoids a visual disturbance to the area purported to be in use by the local business, in

accordance with their wishes.

Public Interpretation of

County Municipal Development Plan

Statements by members of the public have been made about the County’s Municipal

Development Plan in their advocacy efforts surrounding CETO, treating interpretation

of the MDP as a regulatory instrument, to which the County reminds the

general public is not how this document is to be applied.

The MDP is a planning tool used to guide discussions around how future development

should take place, and as such the various components must be seen not as

an enforcement mechanism used to preclude one development or another for being

inconsistent with the plan, but rather as part of a benchmark for the greater discussion

on how development can adhere to as many aspects of the region’s planning values

and policies to achieve balance.

The Council of the County of Paintearth also wishes to remind the public that when

consultations begin on the Municipal Development Plan update, scheduled in Council’s

Strategic Plan for late 2019 or early 2020, that input from residents in the area

will once again serve as a critical component to guide the document as it seeks to

define current planning policies and principles based on best practices, and public

values.

As always, the County encourages all parties engaged in dialogue to remain respectful,

courteous to their neighbours, and to keep an open mind to all points of view.

Respectfully,

Stan Schulmeister

ECA Review

Multiple farming and ranching

operations across Alberta opened their

doors to the public for an educational

weekend known as Open Farm Days.

Every kind of variety under the

spectrum of agriculture was present

including microbreweries, grain, beef,

poultry, honey, fisheries, wineries,

gardens and even retail pottery.

Toblane Farms, a mixed operation

consisting of broiler chickens and

grain, is nestled just north of the village

of Rosalind, Alta.

The family-run farm had the doors

open wide for anyone to come and see

what exactly happens in the Canadian

poultry industry.

“I decided to get involved with

Alberta Open Farm Days because it’s

my way of doing my little part to advocate

for the chicken industry and it’s a

pretty simple avenue to do that,” said

Adrian Tobler, co-owner and operator

of Toblane Farms.

“It’s well advertised. I don’t have to

do much, I just have to open the doors

and let people in and basically answer

questions.”

Alberta Chicken Producers was

excited about the event as well.

They provided the Toblers with an

open enclosure for easy access to

interact with chicks as well as recipes

and other take-home goodies for visitors

to enjoy.

The Toblers raise 60,000

chickens for approximately 37 to

38 days when they reach

maturity.

This eight-week cycle is done

six-and-a-half times a year in

two barns they currently have

to house them.

Grain farming

is done on the side

to balance the

chicken

production.

“Not all of our

wheat is fed but

we feed our own

wheat on farm so

it kind of compliments

each

other,” said

Tobler.

The farm is run

by Tobler and his

father, Peter with

his mother, Doris

at the helm as

bookkeeper and

administrator.

Tobler has

found many benefits

to being his

own boss.

“Being able to

wake up and have

your work at your

doorstep. There

are pros and cons

to it but just

working for yourself,

seeing the

finished product.

Being able to

raise healthy

Alberta chicken

for Albertans and

Canadians sustainably

and

make a profit at it

at the end of the

day.”

He continued,

“It’s a good living.

It’s a good way to

raise kids, a good

way to live in my

opinion. You have

no boss telling

you what to do,

you just do it.

That’s the best

part of it. I just

like seeing things

grow whether its

animals or

plants.”

The Tobler’s

originate from

Switzerland,

which can be

traced back to

1591 on the very

same farm in the

neutral country.

They moved to

Ontario in 1987

where they ran a

dairy farm before

moving to Alberta

in 2002 and getting

into poultry

and grain farming.

Alberta Open Farm Days is a

collaborative, province-wide,

two-day event that allows

Albertans an opportunity to

experience the farm and understand

where their food comes

from.

Kendal Pierson of Cessford placed in a number of

ECA Review

Prairie Land Regional School

Division (PRLD) had two shining stars

take home big titles after the Canadian

High School Rodeo Finals.

Dixon Tattrie of Youngstown and

Kendal Pierson of Cessford made their

way to Merritt, B.C. from July 26 to

July 28.

Tattrie won first place out of all bull

riders in Canada after coming in as an

underdog.

Both him and Pierson qualified for

the provincial finals under one of

three districts.

The top five from the province head

to the national finals and at first that

did not include Tattrie as he never

placed in the top five.

Since Manitoba didn’t provide riders

simply because of the travelling distance,

Tattrie along with others were

able to attend as wildcards to fill spots.

“It was quite exciting because I

hadn’t been riding the greatest going

into finals so it was a nice turn around

to go from not riding very well to going

three for three and winning it all. It

was elating and kind of relieving to

finally hit that

stride,” said

Tattrie.

Many aspects

keep the sport of

bull riding alive

for Tattrie.

“It’s very

exciting. That’s

all there is to it

like there is all

the travelling and

you get to hang

out with friends

and you’re doing it pretty much all

year round even if you’re not doing

anything you are training for it.

“There’s the adrenaline rush after

you get off and there is all the excitement

of if you make a good ride, the

excitement of the crowd and friends

are cheering for you and you know you

just did something great,” he said.

As for Pierson, she went to the finals

with a few events to participate in.

She placed second in the breakaway

roping, fourth in both the goat tying

and barrel racing and won Girls All

Round Reserve.

“For my first year of high school, it

was really good for sure,” said Pierson.

“It’s pretty cool considering how tiny

our school is and being able to go out

there and do all of that for such a small

town.

Pierson started moving towards a

life of rodeo by the time she was fiveyears-old

through roping clinics and

began to enter rodeos once she hit

Grade 5.

Tattrie is entering his final year of

high school while Pierson is headed

into Grade 10.
