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
Count on Us
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
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.

information becomes available,” said

Fibke-Van Heinen is of settler
descent and teaches Canadian history
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
The opinions expressed are not necessarily
the opinions of this newspaper.
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
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,
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Not in my books!
I believe the author of “Stop worrying

must see the world through “rosecoloured
According to him, Trump is the
greatest leader in the world.
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
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!

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
“How about I come in and teach a
full lesson?” jokingly replied
On a more serious note, she said, “I

make no doubt, it was much smaller in
comparison to the number of people
who experienced abuse but yes people

“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

Position Statement of Council
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
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
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.
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
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
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.
