EDITORIAL

Protecting

consumers

Brenda Schimke

ECA Review

For those who believe in the efficiencies

of markets and the need to

eliminate government overreach, the

recent decision by the Competition

Bureau to deny Rogers

Communications Inc. their takeover

bid of Shaw Communications Inc.

would certainly be another example of

the federal government ‘gone rogue’.

Premier Jason Kenney agrees and

has announced his government will

intervene in the courts to support

Rogers’ takeover of Shaw.

As does University of Ottawa

Professor Jennifer Quaid. Four days

after the nationwide,

day-long


Rogers’ outage,

the Canadian

Press reported

her saying,

“There is now a

bigger opportunity

for

regulators to

take a closer

look at cost savings

from the

proposed deal

and whether

those savings would come from eliminating

redundancy and reducing

technical staff.”

Yet for the millions of Rogers’ customers

and all those businesses that

lost network services on Friday, July 8,

they’re more likely thinking the exact

opposite.

The Competition Bureau, after a

15-month review, has not seen any

proof that the economic benefits that

Rogers is promising would be sufficient

to outweigh the hit to

competition.

The Competition Bureau forecasts

the deal would result in higher prices,

poorer services and fewer choices for

consumers, and in turn increase

profits for shareholders including the

ultra-rich members of the family ownership

groups and non-Canadian

investors.

From a customer’s point of view, it

would seem more logical to build in

additional redundancy for corporations

that provide essential services,

not less.

Although a much shorter outage

than on July 8, an upgrade by Rogers

eight months prior also caused a

system-wide failure for several hours.

Many Rogers’ customers could rightfully

argue that Rogers actually needs

more technical staff, not less.

Professor Quaid’s comments seem

out of touch with the modern world

where reliable connectivity is an

essential service, not a nice-to-have

feature.

The price tag on the July 8 outage

has yet to be calculated, but it will be

high for businesses. To be sure,

Rogers’ battery of lawyers will fight

hard to deny any culpability.

Rogers, for those who missed last

year’s family dust up, is controlled by a

family trust that owns virtually all the

Class A voting shares, and a court

decision in 2021 found that one person,

Edward Rogers, has absolute control

over the family trust board of directors—ergo,

the

entire public

company.

non-voting Class

B shares in these

companies and

have no ability to

hold either family trust accountable.

You don’t have to use much imagination

to believe this is just a cozy deal

between two billionaire families.

The Competition Bureau is often the

last roadblock to protect consumers.

Although the pressure has been great

from industry and the Alberta government,

the bureau is still holding firm

on their pronouncement that this

merger is a bad deal for consumers.

With the highest mobile phone costs

in the world when ranked against comparable

countries, it’s not hard to

understand moving from four competitors

to three isn’t a great idea.

The Competition Bureau’s decision

to stop the $26-billion takeover of Shaw

isn’t enough. Governments must

become more involved in legislating

mandates, setting regulations and

undertaking regular audits on industries

that provide essential services,

especially those where capital costs

are too prohibitive for true competition

to exist.

The July 8 outage and the deal

between the Shaw and Rogers family

trusts should be a wakeup call for all

consumers to re-consider the mantra

that ‘free markets are king’ and ‘government

institutions are a waste of

money’.

Morrin council sewer

decision challenged

Dear Editor,

I am writing in sympathy to Howard

and Lynn Helton’s plight to have their

sewer repaired. How can the Village of

Morrin council, the Chief

Administrative Officer (CAO) Annette

Plachner and the village foreman all

agree ‘that Helton’s sewer is just fine’

even though it has what is called in

plumbing terms, a 20 ft. belly that is

always full of

sewage?


Do we have to go

back to full flush toilets

to keep our

laterals free

flowing?

Has council taken

the time to look at

the video of

the other four lateral

lines on

Helton’s street that

were repaired to see

how the decision

was made to avoid repairing the lateral

leading to Helton’s property?

It is my belief that the Helton’s lateral

is as bad, if not worse, than the

others that were repaired.

I went through this same issue on

my property and for years I had to take

precautions to avoid sewer back up

including a lengthy legal battle before

my sewer was finally repaired. The

daily stress of having to constantly

watch for sewer backup and to tell

your visitors that we have a sewer

backup problem is very wearing.

The advice from TKNT Plumbing is

discouraging to say the least, and the

comment made that a lot of the village

sewers have this lateral line issue, is

not very comforting.

So what are residents to do when you

want to sell your property and you

have a legal obligation to disclose any

knowledge that you have concerning

known problems?

Do you think that being forthright

with a potential buyer will help sell

your home when you say you have a 20

long as you

have someone

council won’t

venture a guess that you would either

value.

Mr. Helton has requested he be able

to make a presentation to council so

they would understand the issue he

and Lynn deal with daily, but his

request to make a presentation was

flatly refused by CAO Annette

Plachner.

It would be better for the Helton’s

and for the Village of Morrin’s public

image if this matter was dealt with

soon before another sewer backup has

DELIA COUNCIL

Council hears of ‘safe house’ intent

Daniel Gonzalez

ECA Review

Benjamin Miskuski appeared

before the council on July 13

regular council meeting to

announce his intent to turn the

hotel in Delia into a safe house

for women and children who

are victims of domestic abuse.

Miskuski wanted to clear up

any allegations and rumours

about the space being a safe

injection site or halfway house.

He assures the community and

council that it is definitely not

the case.

“There won’t be metal tables

and it won’t be a safe injection

site.” says Miskuski. “...It’s more

of a sanctuary. More like a

human centre than anything

else.”

With over 17 years of experience

doing social work,

Miskuski plans to create safe

space for residents of rural

Alberta in Delia.

He has plans to transform the

hotel into an area that has

social programming with the

former bar area of the hotel

offering first aid and babysitting

courses with the inclusion

of a greenhouse and communal

garden located behind the hotel.

Miskuski plans to have locals

to staff the safe house and does


not plan to bring in workers

who are not residents of Delia.

The building will be staffed 24

hours a day, have security cameras

and reinforced doors in the

event an abuser travels to the

site.

The safe house will accept

women, children and pets.

Miskuski does not want any

barriers that would prevent

people from accessing their

services.

It will hold a maximum of 15

people who can stay for as long

as their circumstances require.

He will offer social programming

and employment skills to

assist victims.

It will serve people in Red

Deer and the surrounding area.

According to Miskuski, there

are currently no services available

in the area that offer

overnight shelter and

accommodations.

Miskuski spoke with the

RCMP and has been told that

with this shelter is a space

where residents of Drumheller

can be sent in cases of domestic

abuse.

Chief Administrative Officer

(CAO) Bill Wulff noted that in

cases of domestic abuse in rural

Alberta, RCMP can only refer

residents to services in Calgary

but they have to travel there

CORONATION COUNCIL

themselves.

Like the previous welfare

establishments that Miskuski

has worked with, he intends to

make sure that the area and

building is in good condition

and will integrate well with the

community.

“I’ve seen some shelters run

very poorly, and I know how bad

they can get very quickly,” says

Miskuski. “That’s not going to

happen in this community in

any way, shape or form,” he

assured council.

In the event the shelter spirals

out of control, he noted his

intent to cancel the lease. He

will also work with the community

to ensure that this will not

happen.

Over 90 per cent of domestic

abuse cases go unreported.

Miskuski hopes that this establishment

brings more

awareness to the issue.

Although the safe house has

no name, Miskuski hopes the

community will come up with a

name for the establishment.

Business incubator proposal

Daniel Gonzalez

ECA Review

Chief Administrative Officer

(CAO) Quinton Flint presented

information from the June 29

Battle River Economic

Opportunities Committee board

meeting about how to spend

Canada Coal Transition

Initiative Funding (CCT-IF) at

the July 11 regular meeting of

council.

After being approved for

$775,000 in funding, CAO Flint

met with representatives from

Castor to discuss ideas that can

better serve both communities.

The first two ideas involved

creating industrial development

sites or the Willow Tree

Research Facility and Sites.

Problems from these ideas

stemmed from how the CCT-IF

cannot be spent to buy land,

time constraints involving the

development process and

logistic issues.

The final idea, which garnered

high interest, involved

the development of a business

incubator in Coronation.

A business incubator would

offer a dedicated office space or

retail storefront to help jumpstart

local businesses in

Coronation.

With the funding provided,

Coronation would have the

opportunity to renovate a

building to create dedicated

office or retail space for businesses.

In addition, the town

could also purchase equipment

for these spaces and lease them

to the business owners

According to guidelines with

the CCT-IF they are unable to

sell the newly renovated property

and must lease it for a set

amount of years which is dependent

on the term agreement.

Although this stipulation is in

place, council discussed the possibility

of a rent-to-purchase

agreement for business owners.

More discussion and information

is needed in regards to

what types of business spaces

are required for Coronation.

CAO Flint believes that

Coronation would benefit from

more storefront business

spaces.

Additionally, CAO Flint has

already reached out to the

Battle River Alliance for

Economic Development and

other consultants for

information.

Council accepted all the concepts

provided as information.

Bylaw report

The officer bylaw report was

presented to council.

A total of three violations in

regards to trailers were

reported. Compared to last year,

CAO Flint noted that it is significantly

less than compared to

last year. He speculates that it

could be due to the increase of

gas prices which caused people

to travel less.

Correspondence for pets has

also been down when compared

to last year with only five calls

made for dogs and none for cats.

12 reports of lawn cutting

have been reported, but CAO

Flint assured council that only

four have not been dealt with.

CAO flint mentioned that property

owners, town workers and

summer students have all been

working together to have these

problems resolved in a timely

and organized manner.

Coun. Mark Stannard

brought forward a vehicle

located on Victoria Ave. that is

sitting on logs and jack stands.

CAO Flint mentioned that the

owner was approached and

expected him to resolve the

problem in the week.

Public auction

Information regarding the

terms and conditions for the

2022 public auction were discussed

by council.

As per the Municipal

Government Act (MGA),

council is required to establish

a reserve selling price that is

reasonably close to the market

value of each parcel being

offered to sale alongside any

terms and conditions for each

sale.

Additionally, advertisements

for the auction must be posted

in at least one issue of the

Alberta Gazette in no less than

40 days and no more than 90.

The auction will take place on

Sept. 27, 2022. An auctioneer has

been hired for the event and

will be paid $500.

In the event that the Town of

Coronation is interested in any

of the listed properties, council

appointed CAO Flint to bid on

behalf of Coronation.

Although the CAO Flint will

be able to bid on properties for

Coronation, he must have full

resolution with the council on

properties beforehand and the

maximum bid value cannot

exceed more than two per cent

of the reserved selling price set

by council.

Council moved to approve the

terms and conditions, the

reserve bids for properties

being offered for sale being

established as presented and

appointed CAO Flint to acquire

properties if required by

council for the 2022 auction.

Balks at ‘highway

sign’ advertising

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism

Initiative reporter

ECA Review

Alix village council pondered

an idea from local

residents to further promote

local enterprise but ultimately

decided the idea was

too expensive. The discussion

was held at the July 6

regular meeting of council.

Village Chief

Administrative Officer

(CAO) White presented a

report to councillors

regarding highway sign

advertising; Alix is located

at the intersection of Hwy. #

12 and Sec. Hwy. #601, a

busy traffic spot.

“Mayor (Rob) Fehr mentioned

he had been

approached by a couple of

business owners regarding

advertising on the Alberta

Transportation highway

signs,” stated White in her

report.

“He asked administration

to look into this and report

back.” White noted she contacted

the Tourism Highway

Sign Program.

Program representative

responded, “Businesses

located with the community

limits of Alix can have their

business name placed on a

sign on Hwy. #12 just after

the existing green and blue

Alix community sign.”

Interested businesses

would need to submit the

online logo application form

with a $35 application fee.

The sign panel fee for a five

year term is $2,250 per

direction so if they want east

and westbound direction on

Hwy. 12 then it will be

$4,500.

As White presented the

financial implications of the

idea, she noted that “...there

will likely be an expense to

During discussion the

CAO clarified the sign in

community, it notifies

motorists of shopping

options available to them in

White stated she wasn’t

sure that this signage

would be very affordable

for Alix businesses, and

seemed like it might be

more suitable for larger

communities with franchises

or big box stores.

Mayor Fehr pointed out

the idea had been suggested

to him and he felt it had

enough merit to discuss at

the meeting.

Coun. Tim Besuijen

stated this idea might be

something the Alix

Discussion eventually

wound around to a business

the directory sign they

noted it belongs to the

BIG VALLEY COUNCIL

Big Valley Whistle newsletter needs second look

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism initiative reporter

ECA Review

The Big Valley village council

decided at their July 14 regular

meeting their recent tinkering with

the popular community newsletter

needed a second look.

At previous meetings village council

discussed tweaking how the Big Valley

Whistle is made available to the community

as they felt post office delivery

was too expensive; they previously

decided having a box of newsletters

available to the public near the post

office was the way to go.

However, Mayor Dan Houle asked

that the subject be placed on the

agenda for more discussion.

Houle stated he felt council needed to

take a deeper look at the issue of

mailing the newsletter versus not

mailing it. Houle stated that recent

interactions with Big Valley residents

suggests people don’t know what’s

going on in the community and the fact

The Whistle is no longer mailed to residents

has played a role in that problem.

Houle suggested putting The Whistle

delivery back to the way it was,

inserted by Canada Post into mailboxes,

and try to find savings in other

village departments instead.

The mayor added that relying on

social media isn’t solving the problem,

“...because not everybody is on facebook,”

he said.

Coun. Gail Knudson wondered if

people will pick up the newsletter if it’s

in a public box. She also wondered if

the box would be vulnerable to vandalism,

for example.

Houle stated he was confident people

would pick it up but also repeated he

felt that not having the newsletter in

mailboxes was negatively affecting the

community.

Knudson noted she’d also heard negative

feedback in the community

regarding changes to The Whistle

delivery and added that it was done in

the spirit of cost savings.

Coun. Amber Hoogenberg suggested

trying the pick-up box for a while and

see if the community embraces it;

Hoogenberg added it would be pretty

easy to tell if people liked the idea

Council cuts their own pay

Stu Salkeld

Local journalism initiative reporter

ECA Review

Big Valley village council essentially

cut their own wages after a

debate on how they are paid to attend

meetings. The decision was made at

the July 14 regular meeting of council.

Mayor Dan Houle requested councillors

discuss their remuneration for

attending meetings, specifically, the

flat rate they’re paid for the first fours

hours of said meeting.

Houle pointed out Big Valley council

was paid $60 for the first four hours or

part thereof; therefore, if a meeting is

one hour or three and a half hours,

they get paid $60 to attend regardless.

Houle suggested cutting that down

to $30 for up to two hours, followed by

$15 for every hour thereafter. The

mayor noted it still works out to the

same pay for longer meetings, but

could save the taxpayers about $2,100 a

year for shorter ones. Houle stated

every efficiency helps ensure the

future viability of the village.

Looking at a report on the subject

prepared by Chief Administrative

Officer (CAO) Elaine Macdonald,

Coun. Gail Knudson noted Big Valley

councillors were already the lowest

paid on a list of those polled by the

CAO. Knudson stated a councillor does

a lot of work behind the scenes such as

preparing for meetings and talking

with residents and hesitated to cut the

meeting rate.

Knudson added that councillors

have to take time off from employment

for council work and some people don’t

run for council seats because the pay

is too low.

The CAO responded the monthly stipend

is intended to cover things like

meeting with residents.

Houle’s change to remuneration was

approved by a 2 to 1 vote, Houle and

Coun. Amber Hoogenberg in favour,

Knudson opposed.

Employee training policy

Councillors approved the Education

and Professional Development Cost

Reimbursement policy, which the CAO

explained in her report protects the

taxpayers when paying for advanced

employee training.

“The goal of this policy is to ensure

the village isn’t paying for professional

development opportunities and losing

the employee immediately after

attaining their certificates or

diplomas,” stated Macdonald’s memo.

The policy included rules for trained

staff paying back their training costs

to the village if they leave the village’s

employment within four years. She

noted it’s prudent to have something

like this in place and she’s had personal

experience with policies like this

as well.

It was noted that some courses for

municipal staff can cost $800 to $900

each, and up to 12 courses could be

involved, so it could be a substantial

investment of taxpayer money.

Coun. Knudson stated she was

unsure about forcing people to pay

back training money.

“I personally find it a little harsh,”

said Knudson.

During discussion it was stated the

village has paid for advanced training

in the past only to see an employee

leave for a different job soon after.

Knudson stated she felt it was too

harsh to ask employees to agree to the

policy if the employee was perhaps

unsure they liked the job or not.

Macdonad responded it was important

that the village explains this policy to

staff very clearly when hired.

The policy was passed by a 2 to 1

vote Houle and Hoogenberg in favour,

Knudson opposed.

because the newsletters would be gone.

Village Chief Administrative Officer

(CAO) Elaine Macdonad noted the village

can’t place the newsletter box on

Canada Post property, but other

options were available nearby.

Hoogenberg added that if the village

was getting that many complaints

about changes to The Whistle, then

something has got to be done.

Councillors unanimously decided to

try the public box for the rest of

summer to see if it’s popular and discuss

the issue again at the September

council meeting.

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB July 21'22 5


STETTLER COUNTY COUNCIL

Tax request denied, owner preferred farmland rate

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative reporter

ECA Reporter

Stettler County council denied a

property owner’s request to waive part

or all of their over $700 tax bill after

the property owners balked at their

market value assessment. The decision

was made at the July 13 regular

meeting of council.

Councillors heard the tax relief

request as presented by Tax Clerk

Sharon Larsen from owners of tax roll

636601, which was described as being

located south of the Hamlet of Erskine.

“The ratepayers purchased a 10-acre

parcel of land in April of 2021, which is

presently used for their fifth wheel

trailer and camping,” stated Larsen’s

report, who explained later in the discussion

the property owners live in the

city and come out to camp on the property

over the summer.

“They are aware, through a discussion

with an assessor, about the change

in the land status from farmland to

market land. The change in land status

caused a tax assessment change;

causing taxes to increase from the $50

minimum tax levy to $738.36 (1,368 per

cent) in a single year. The ratepayer is

requesting council consider forgiveness

of a portion of the 2022 tax levy.”

Larsen’s report included a letter

from the property owners, who were

unidentified as their names were

redacted from the agenda package.

“Our assumption was that as long as

we did not build or add services to the

property our tax assessment would not

increase, (subject to inflation).” stated

the anonymous letter.

“We have enjoyed using our fifth

wheel camping trailer on the property...being

back to nature and a

simpler way of life.”

“We spoke to the assessor and

learned that the increase is due to the

fact that the assessment has taken a

couple of years to get caught up to the

proper market value and zoning.”

The letter closed by asking councillors

to reduce the tax bill in question,

which the councillors have the

authority to do under the Municipal

Government Act (MGA).

During discussion Coun. Ernie

Gendre asked if the property was previously

used for farming. Larsen

answered to the best of her knowledge

the previous owner leased the property

out.

County Chief Administrative Officer

(CAO) Yvette Cassidy stated the property

is being used as an acreage and

not for farming; there’s been a pad

placed on the property to accommodate

a camper.

When asked if the camper has a

Stettler County permit, Cassidy

answered that it does and the property

owners remove the camper in the fall.

Nibourg responded that the situation

includes a development permit on

developed land so it gets no forgiveness

in his books.

Coun. Justin Stevens stated he

Request for cheaper water hook-up denied

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative reporter

ECA Review

Stettler county council turned down

a hamlet resident’s request for a

cheaper water hook-up at their regular

meeting July 13, noting as they did so

other residents in the same community

paid the full price.

County Chief Administrative Officer

(CAO) Yvette Cassidy presented a

memo from staff member Michelle

Hoover which described a request

from an anonymous County of Stettler

resident who’ve had a problem with

their water well in the Hamlet of

Erskine and wanted to be part of a

lower cost water system hook-up program

that expired about two years ago.

“I am writing to you to inquire about

being hooked up to town water,” stated

the anonymous letter. The writer’s

name had been redacted from the

agenda package.

“We moved to Erskine in July of 2020

and the house we moved into has its

own well which is now starting to go

bad. After having the water tested we

have found it has many different minerals

in it as well as arsenic, making

the water not safe to drink.

“In light of these things we have

decided it is necessary to get hooked up

to town water. However, for a young

couple with a newborn this is a big

expense.

There was a rebate being offered to

anyone in town who wanted to hook-up

to town water in the past.

“Because this offer ended before we

moved to town we were wondering if it

would be possible for us to receive the

same rebate that was previously

offered or if there are any other options

that lower the price of water hook-up?

The hook-up fee for residential water

service in Erskine is $5,000.

Coun. Justin Stevens asked what the

estimated cost to the county taxpayers

would be if the request was granted.

Cassidy pointed out the water line

stub is already at the property line and

the resident is responsible for hook-up

costs, while the staff memo stated the

meter alone costs about $600.

Staff also noted several other

Erskine residents have hooked-up to

the hamlet water system since the

rebate program ended and have paid

the full $5,000.

Coun. James Nibourg stated he

struggled with the request but noted

the county water system likely adds

value to their property and that maybe

the owners should have had the water

tested before they bought the property.

He also estimated a new water well

to cost from $15,000 to $18,000 compared

to the $5,000 water hook-up cost.

Staff pointed out a new water well is

not an option and that property

owners also have to have Alberta

Environment decommission the old

well.

Coun. Stevens stated it was his

understanding that Stettler County

was able to offer the $350 incentive

during construction as it was a cost

effective option at the time, plus the

project was supported by government

grants; Stevens stated none of those

factors are at play anymore.

Cassidy pointed out the county

allows Erskine residents to pay the

$5,000 over five years, and they pay the

same “very good” interest rate the

municipality pays.

Councillors unanimously declined

to grant the request.

recently took subdivision development

appeal board training and noted it

seems every time something like this

has come to court, it’s been defeated;

the actual use of the land is the primary

consideration, and cited

industrial users storing materials on

agricultural land and asking that it

still be taxed as farmland.

“I think the courts kind of decided

this one for us,” said Stevens.

Nibourg asked his peers what the

nightly cost of local campgrounds is,

which Gendre responded $30 to $50 a

night. Nibourg then noted a monthly

stay would be over $700, compared to

these property owner’s annual tax bill

of about the same amount.

“This is pretty cheap camping,” said

Nibourg.

Councillors unanimously denied the

request to reduce the tax bill in

question.

ELNORA COUNCIL

Support requested for grounds repair


Daniel Gonzalez

ECA Review

Leah Nelson of the Elnora Brahma

Rama committee requested repair support

for the agricultural grounds site

in preparation for the 22nd Elnora

Brahma Rama.

According to the letter sent to

council, the event has been postponed

Finished the course, kept the faith

Luella Kowalsky passed away in

Sundre, Alta. on Thurs. June 23, 2022

at the age of 97 years.

Luella Augusta Kurpjuweit was

born Sept. 29, 1924, kid number five of

six to Rudolph and Lydia Kurpjuweit

(nee Germolus) on the Great Hope

Ranch in southern Alberta, south of

Medicine Hat.

A robust child she was

not — quote: “In fact, when

I was tiny, my mother said

there was four times when

she was holding me in her

arms that she thought I

had died.”

One illness in grade

school had her being

rushed to Medicine Hat in

a Bennett buggy, pulled by Kowlawsky

a team of horses so fast

that a guy at the livery offered her dad

an exorbitant amount of money for the

team.

She loved her horses, and her

beloved pony Pete was her transportation

to and from her early school.

When she came to the limits of the

country school education, she switched

to today’s equivalent of “on-line

learning” and took most of her high

school by correspondence. She

wanted to have a sense of a “real

school” and so moved to Medicine Hat

to take her Grade 12 in a ‘real’ classroom

with ‘real’ teachers.

and the grounds have been left in a

state of disrepair.

Nelson requested that the Village of

Elnora Public Works assist by steam

cleaning the stands to lighten the

workload of the committee as they prepare

for the event on Aug. 13.

The Brahma Rama attracts between

2000 and 2500 visitors annually.

Council motion to have Public Works

staff to wash the bleachers.

OBITUARY

Her next step was at a Normal

School in Calgary where she did an

eight-month program to train teachers

for war-time education. She then took

some teaching positions in rural

Albert before heading off to Bible

School in Medicine Hat where she met

the dashing and talented gentleman

Edward Kowalsky who went by

the name of ‘Bud’.

A marriage followed logically

in due course, and five children.

Their early married years

were spent trying to get to the

mission field, but higher powers

had other plans and Luella was

directed to teach. And so teach

she did. For many years she

wished to “be papered” and

kept taking university courses

to get her degree. Every time

she came close, they moved the goal

posts. A two-year requirement

became three, then four. She was

nearing retirement when she let that

dream go. She never did get her

degree.

Luella and Bud lived and worked in

several small towns in Alberta and

Saskatchewan before moving to Castor

in 1977.

In Castor, when Bud took the pastorship

of the Evangelical United

Brethren Church, Luella did Welcome

Wagon and substitute teaching, eventually

getting a full-time teaching

Signage

A resident requested council change

the traffic signage located on Princess

Street and 5th Avenue at the July 11

regular meeting of council.

The corner currently has a stop sign,

but the resident noted that during the

winter time it is difficult to move after

stopping due to the ice on the streets

and an incline on the corner.

Princess Street is reported to get

position in Coronation which took her

to retirement in 1990.

Bud died in 2009 and Luella moved

up to the Lodge where she thrived

until her mid-90’s when mobility issues

mandated a move to Sundre Assisted

Living to be closer to Glenn and Laura,

both having retired and able to spend

more time with her.

They were both at her side when the

angels came for her in the early

morning hours of June 23, 2022.

OBITUARIES

Complete sense of security, comfort, love

Janet James passed away on Mon.

June 27, 2022 in Edmonton, Alta. at the

age of 94 years.

Janet Eileen James was

born on the farm at

Lauderdale, Alta. on Dec 13,

1927. Her Aunt Marion was

there to help her into the

world. They placed her into a

basket and put her by the

heater on that cold December

night.

Her dad is remembered to

have declared her to be the

smartest of the bunch because James

she could lift her head while in

that basket.

She grew up on the farm with eight

siblings and attended Lauderdale

school until high school. She then

attended school in Castor and boarded

at the dorm there with her good friend

and cousin, Evelyn Marshall.

After high school Janet went to

Calgary to study at secretarial school

and then returned to Castor and

worked in the bank.

She met Des in high school

and would attend the

Saturday night dances with

him. They married Oct 28,

1948. They moved to their

farm a year later and spent

many, many, too many years

(according to mom) renovating

the old farmhouse.

Karen was born a year

and a half later and Ken two

years after that, Trudy 1.5

years after Ken, four years

later was Joan and Pam two years

later. Yes, she was a very busy farmer

and homemaker with her five kids,

immaculate home and garden and her

community involvement.

Janet put many volunteer hours into

various women’s organizations

including UCW, Royal Purple and

Bulwark Friendship Club as well as

leading the CGIT youth group.

She always had a huge garden from

which she had to can or freeze so much

of the extra. (There have been many

arguments amongst the grandchildren

over the years about who gets the last

of the canned peaches.)

She worked on the machinery at the

farm when needed, especially driving

the grain truck. On top of that Des

would often give her a day’s notice of a

trip to Victoria or some such place.

Janet would miraculously pack up the

family of seven, and make it happen.

Janet’s skill as a baker was well

known. Her baking was valuable on

the school lunch trade, her chocolate

chip cookies could bring in a big haul.

Her apple pie was renowned in the

community not to mention her

Always looked for a new challenge

Charles Thomas Bagshaw, 75, of

Stettler, Alta. passed away on June 23,

2022 at the Stettler Hospital and Care

Center after a long journey with heart

disease.

Charlie was born on Feb. 19, 1947 in

Calgary to William and Matilda

(Walker) Bagshaw and grew

up on an acreage just west of

Stettler.

As a child he and his siblings

enjoyed summers at the

lake, catching critters, and

had many tea towel wars

running circles in the house.

It was a big deal in the

household when Charlie was

old enough to go hunting

with his dad, and fishing Bagshaw

with his dad from a young

age became a lifelong

passion.

As a teen, he was quite the athletic

fella taking part in all the sports

“except football and hockey because

they took place during volleyball.”

He had a knack for anything

mechanical and electrical and also

enjoyed anything speedy, stating “if it

went fast, I raced it!”

Curling was one of his favourites

and developed into another lifelong

passion and in later years the curling

highlight of the year was attending the

Brier with his daughters.

Working with his father, Charlie

became a journeyman electrician. He

obtained his Master Electrician certification,

at the time, the youngest in

Alberta to do so.

In Carstairs, Alta. he worked with

Home Oil as gas plant electrician

before operating his own business in

Crossfield, Alta. for several years

where he met the love of his life, Beth.

Charlie, being Charlie, always

looking for a new challenge, tried his

hand at farming in Saskatchewan and

trucking all over Canada and USA,

then back to his roots as an oilfield

electrician in Grande Prairie, Alta.

In 1987, Charlie, Beth and family

headed back to Stettler to take over his

father’s electrical contracting business

and they have been running it ever

since.

Community was so important to

Charlie, and you would see him supporting

many organizations by helping

to keep them up and running;

attending events and fundraisers in

person, as a sponsor, or by donating

the time and equipment to power up

the whole event!

When he wasn’t out fixing the countryside,

masterminding new

innovations, or having coffee and

yakking with friends and colleagues,

he was spending time with his family

also yakking, fishing, woodworking,

watching curling, playing crib and

enjoying a good time telling some good

(bad?) jokes, and filling our heads with

wisdom and hilarity.

Charlie will be forever

missed by surviving family :

wife Beth; children,

Bernedette Bagshaw and her

children Matthew and

Allyssa, Virginia Bagshaw,

Henry Martin Hennel, 1935 - 2022

Henry passed away at Heritage

House in Stettler, Alta. on July 10, 2022

at the age of 87 years. He was born on

the farm June 4, 1935. His birth certificate

said he was born at Warden

Junction as it was the closest post

office in 1935.

Henry attended school in Fenn, Wall

Lake and graduated from Stettler High

School.

When Henry’s dad died in 1954,

Henry helped his mother carry on the

farm. Times were hard, money was

scarce; so, Henry got his steam ticket

and worked as a boiler man on the

rigs.

In 1956 Henry married Elaine

Kenney and they made their

home on the farm, raising cattle

and farming. As they farmed

more land, Henry and Harvey

decided they needed more horsepower.

Being innovative they

rigged two Deutz tractors together

which was pretty amazing. Later

Hennel brothers would purchase

the Belarus.

Ever the entrepreneur, Henry had a

thriving post business. Later he

started oilfield spraying of leases.

These last years Henry kept busy with

Hennel Oil Sales and salvage and was

well known at the auction sales.

Henry was a member of the Elks for

over 55 years and involved with the

Linda Hall community. A big event

that Henry, Harvey and Raymond

planned were the threshing bees.

Despite so much responsibility at a

young age, and a lot of tough times,

there were good times too. Henry and

Elaine enjoyed trips to Europe,

California, Hawaii and Elk conventions

across Canada.

Henry is survived by his son Marty

(Carol Kwong), his daughter Shelley

(Ray Skeleton), grandchildren Shaye

Skeleton, Misty (Chris) Ventnor, great

grandchildren Liam, Braxton and

Blake, honorary grandchildren Nikki

Hilker and Kent Hennel, sisters Sylvia

(John) Walters and Marion (Glen)

Collin, his helpers Max and Donny and

many relatives and friends.

Henry was predeceased by his wife

of 63 years Elaine, his infant daughter

Beth, his son-in-law Murray Jones, his

parents Martin and Erna Hennel, his

brothers: Harvey,

Norman and Raymond

Hennel, his nephews

Fred and Steven Hennel

and Cameron Collin.

The family would like

to thank the staff at

Royal Oak Manor in

Lacombe, Dr. Lockhat,

Stettler Hospital and

Heritage House for their

care.

If friends desire,

memorial tributes in Henry’s memory

may be made to the Purple Cross Fund

or a charity of one’s choice.

A celebration of Henry’s life was

held on Wed. July 20, 2022 at the

Stettler Funeral Home. Henry was

laid to rest beside his beloved wife

Elaine at Lake View Cemetery, Stettler,

Alta. To send condolences to the

family, please visit www.stettlerfuneralhome.com.

Stettler Funeral Home &

Crematorium were entrusted with the

care and funeral arrangements,

403-742-3422.

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB July 21'22 9


Transition to natural gas complete

Daniel Gonzalez

ECA Review

A memento signifying the end of

coal burning at the Battle River and

Sheerness Generating Stations from

Heartland Generation Ltd. was sent to

council at the July 12 regular council

meeting.

Ellison Krismer, the Manager of

Maintenance and Engineering for the

Sheerness Generating Station, presented

the memento to Mayor Danny

Povaschuk.

Krismer announced that the shift to

natural gas has been completed at the

Sheerness generating station. The

transition was made to adapt to the

current energy market.

According to Krismer, it was a bittersweet

transition, but it has brought a

new life into the station and provided

new opportunities for their workers.

Heartland invested $85 million in

completing the transition over the past

two years with an additional $150 million

on coal-supply termination and

remediation.

July 26, 2021 and Oct. 28, 2021 were

the final days that coal was burned at

the Sheerness and Battle River

Generating Stations.

The transition to natural gas was

nearly a decade ahead of regulatory

deadlines and is expected to reduce

greenhouse gas emissions by 45 to 50

per cent.

The Town of Hanna has been a

major stakeholder though Heartland’s

transition to natural gas and council

thanked Krismer and Heartland for

the gift.

Quarterly update

Hanna Fire Department Chief David

Mohl, gave an update on quarterly statistics

to council regarding fire

department activities.

This quarter, the department

responded to 37 incidents. Although

the average number of incidents per

quarter is 22, it was still less when

compared to the same quarter of last

year.

Although the department is

expected to have a full 30 member

capacity with the inclusion of new and

returning members, one member is

expected to leave in fall.

They also applied for a grant of

$290,920 to pay for half of the completion

of a new

training site and

props valued at

$581,854.

By-election

A by-election to

find a new

council member

who will take the

position of the

late Coun. Gerald

“Brass” Campion

will take place

Sept. 26, 2022.

Bin Anchors

Don’t Let The Winds Bother You!

Whenever a seat on council is

vacant, council is legislated to hold a

by-election within 120 days of when it

was opened.

Signage

Council has approved the signage

plan presented by 818 Studio Ltd. and

have authorized Chief Administrative

Officer, Kim Neill, to proceed with the

tender for the project.

Council reviewed design concepts at

the May 25, 2022 council information

meeting and preliminary cost estimates

at the June 29, 2022 information

meeting.

Plans for the project include three

entrance signs for about $180,000, two

gateways signs for around $24,000 and

17 wayfinding signs with additional

signage for buildings and parks for

$6,000 each.The Town of Hanna and

the Village of Youngstown will create a

joint-tender package as the combined

project will be more cost effective.

Although council approved to proceed

with the plan, tender acceptance

will be brought back to council for

approval and it is subject to a funding

commitment from Western Economic

Diversification.

Shacker Crescent Alley

A resident has approached council

and town administration in regards to

the installation of temporary speed

bumps in the southern portion of

Shacker Crescent alley.

Ashley Maetche requested that

council place temporary speed bumps

from May to October, annually to deter

drivers from speeding through the

alley.

Maetche owns property located on

the south side of the alley and notices

that a significant number of children

cross the alley when they head to and

from school.

After discussions at the June 29

information meeting, council received

more information regarding public

feedback and traffic in the alley.

A Hanna social media post found no

real consensus from the community

about the speed bump.

Radar speed tests by Sgt. Welsman

of the Hanna RCMP Detachment

yielded reports that there are no signs

of speeding in the alley. Although Sgt.

Welsman found no evidence of

speeding, he indicated that it does not

For All Your Carpentry Needs, You Name It We Do it!

Hanna, AB 403-857-9885

Consider polished concrete

Once used exclusively for

sidewalks, garage floors and

basement walls, concrete is

coming into its own as a

design material.

In fact, polished concrete is

gaining popularity for kitchen

floors and countertops

because it’s durable and

versatile.

Here are three benefits of

this winning material.

1. It’s low maintenance

Unlike granite, concrete

requires little to no maintenance

once it’s sealed and

polished.

You don’t need to reseal it

once a year or apply protective

wax.

All you need to clean polished

concrete countertops

and floors is soapy water.

There’s no need for special,

expensive cleaning products.

2. It’s customizable

You can be infinitely creative

with polished con crete.

This versatile material comes

in various co lours, so you’re not

limited to grey.

You can also make your concrete

resemble tile or wood to fit

the style of your kitchen.

3” wide version 3.75” wide version

3. It’s durable

Polished concrete floors and

countertops last many decades.

One myth about concrete is that

it stains easily. However, the

sealant creates a protective

layer that prevents liquids like

coffee and red wine from penetrating

the surface. Plus, you

don’t have to worry about

peeling or chipping.

Finally, you should have polished

concrete floors and

countertops installed by a qualified

professional con tractor.

Ask a local home renovation

specialist how to incorporate

concrete into your kitchen.

Pet-friendly décor ideas

Home décor can be a challenge

if you don’t want to

compromise your pet’s happiness

and comfort. Here are a

few ways to let your furry

housemate live its best life

while creating a space that’s

easy on the eyes.

Custom-built pet spaces

Build pet spaces into your

home to replace unattractive,

utilitarian store-bought

pieces. For example, you can

build a sleeping nook for your

dog and keep the crate for car

journeys. You could also take

the unsightly cat tree out of

your front window and build

in a window seat or a series of

cute climbing shelves

instead.

Feeding drawers

Keep your pet’s feeding

area tidy and clean by installing

a sideboard with a floor-level

food drawer. The drawer can be

designed with cut-outs to help

hold bowls in place and easily

remove them for cleaning.

Accompanying cup boards will

allow you to keep food, extra

dishes and other pet accessories

within reach.

Pet-loving fabrics

Look for fabrics that are

durable and easy to clean.

Don’t be afraid to use an

attractive outdoor upholstery

in your living room.

Additionally, performance

fabrics are available in an

increasing variety of colours

and textures. Consider taking

a design cue from your pet

and choosing a colour scheme

that complements its fur.

An interior designer can

help you strike the perfect

balance between beauty and

comfort in your home.

Trendy colours in 2022-23

Over the past two years,

the COVID-19 pandemic has

impacted every aspect of

life, and interior decorating

trends haven’t been

immune. The calming

colour palettes in vogue for

residential design reflect a

desire for comfort during

these unprecedented

times.

Here are three

colours that are

leading the way

into 2023.

Natural green. This

is the year of green, with

brash and bold giving way

to calm and subdued.

Natural shades of green

offer a connection to the natural

world and have a

grounding effect. Deep hues

suggest greater intensity,

while light shades convey

serenity.

Sky blue. Alongside

earthy greens, homeowners

are choosing the naturally

inspired energy of sky blue.

This colour works well

on walls and provides

a pleasing alternative

to stark white.

Light brown.

Another increasingly

popular and organically

inspired choice, pale

brown hues are calming and

serve as a back drop for bold

colours and patterns. Use

brown for cabinet accents to

bring a sense of cozy calm to

your room.

Use your imagination and choose a

shade that expres ses your personality.

Ceiling fans save you money

Ceiling fans are known for keeping

your home cool on hot summer days.

However, did you know that fans can

help keep your house comfortable all

year long? They can also help you

reduce your energy bills. Here’s how.

Summer

A switch on your ceiling fan’s central

unit allows you to operate it in a

clock wise or counterclockwise rotation.

Set your ceiling fan to turn

counterclockwise during warm

months to push air downwards and

create a cool breeze.

A standard air conditioning (AC)

unit uses 3,500 watts of power. On the

other hand, a ceiling fan uses just 50. If

you use ceiling fans, there are many

summer days when you don’t need the

AC. Ceiling fans also complement your

air conditioning. Fans keep air

flowing throughout the room and help

maintain a constant temperature, so

your air conditioner won’t operate as

much.

Winter

During winter, change

your fan’s settings to spin

clock wise at a low speed.

The fan will redistribute

rising warm air from your

furnace throughout the

room. You can turn your

thermostat down and still be

comfortable. More over, your

furnace won’t work as hard,

saving you money.

Lastly, ensure your fan

blades are tilted at 12

degrees to provide sufficient

airflow. However, if they’re

an gled at more than 16

degrees, they’ll cause too

much wind causing loose

objects to blow around the

room.
