DELBURNE COUNCIL

Property owner’s plea to reinstate water service

Brenda Schimke

ECA Review

Ken and Margaret

Minifie-Cloutier presented

their case to the Delburne

village council on July 19

seeking permission to continue

using village water

when visiting their property

in Delburne.

Although the property

has sewer and water

hookups, a house has yet to

be built and instead, they

park their RV on the property

while visiting.

Recently they received a

letter from the village

stating that water would no

longer be provided as this

type of hookup could possibly

contaminate the

village water.

They said they have

always kept the property

maintained, paid all the fees

required, including a $50

monthly consumption fee in

lieu of a meter, and would be

more than willing to pay

any additional fees.

They, however, couldn’t

understand how their setup

affected the health and

safety of the village’s water

system any more than

campground hookups or

outside hoses on homes.

“The change of policy”,


said Coun. Andy Folks, “was

so that everybody that has

services to their property,

even those that don’t utilize

it, need to share in the cost

of funding the future (services).

Sometimes it leads to

this.”

“Council had made a

change on how the village

handles turning water on

for the summer and shutting

it off for the winter and our

policy choice inadvertently

caught you,” said Mayor

Tim Wilson.

Councillor unanimously

passed a motion to reinstate

water service to the Minifie-

Cloutier property.

They will be required to

pay all fees and install a

backflow preventer. These

conditions would cease upon

the sale of the property.

Fees increase

Changes to the Fees &

Charge Bylaw No. 1182/2022

included adjustments to fees

that were too low to cover

the actual costs of the

services.

The base fee for the village

to clean up a private

property has been increased

to $200. It is hoped this

increase will discourage

property owners from

counting on village staff to

KNEEHILL COUNCIL

look after their snow, weeds

and grass.

The application fee under

the land use bylaw will

move from $150 to $300. The

fee has been the same since

1997, yet costs, such as

advertising, have continued

to rise.

The recycling fees

increased to $4.91 for curbside

pick up per the contract

and a $1.50 yard compost fee

has been added.

Popularity of village

newsletter

Because of the village

newsletter’s popularity, too

much demand has been

placed on its space and on

the staff.

A policy was proposed

and unanimously approved

setting out content submission

guidelines and

confirming that village

staff could no longer offer

design services.

“We’ll accept the policy

and then wait for feedback

to see if any changes need to

be made,” said Coun.Jeff

Bourne.

ECA Review

Kneehill County council

unanimously approved rezoning

a parcel of land to

light industrial (LI) to

reflect how that property

was already being used. The

re-zoning bylaw passed

second and third reading

after a public hearing July

19.

The public hearing to consider

a re-zoning application

was opened by Deputy Reeve

Ken King, with the application

presented by staffer

Brandi Hay-Morgan.

The application was based

around Bylaw #1857 which

proposed re-zoning a portion

of SE-22-30-25-W4 plan

011 2534 block A lot 1 from

agriculture to light industrial

zoning.

The application in question

already passed first

reading at the June 14

council meeting.

Hay Morgan described the

application: “Ext Capital

Inc. is the current landowner

of the SE 22-30-25 W4

and have recently purchased

this property in

February of 2022,” she

stated.

“The parcel was purchased

by the new owners

with the impression that the

lands were already zoned

commercial or industrial

use.”

Hay-Morgan explained

that upon further investigation

it was revealed that

although the property was

being used for LI purposes it

was still zoned agriculture.

“The proposed site is

located approximately 2.5

miles southeast of the

Village of Linden as the

crow flies,” stated the

meeting agenda memo.

The site is accessed via

Range Road 252 and is five

miles south of TWP Rd 304.

The applicants currently

store their business products

(concrete forms) in one

bay and are looking to lease

the other three bays to other

businesses for warehousing

purposes.

It was noted that all current

or proposed uses are

allowed under the LI zoning.

Hay-Morgan noted the

county did not receive any

public feedback, either in

support or opposed, for the

application and no one came

forward that the hearing.

Deputy Reeve King noted

the applicant was present for

the public hearing and gave

Ext Capital Inc. a chance to

speak but the company representative

declined.

Later in the meeting councillors

considered the

application.

It was noted at a previous

meeting that the location in

question has been in operation

for a number of years

and isn’t new.

Councillors unanimously

approved all

readings of the

re-zoning bylaw

to bring it into

effect.

Karen Fegan has contacted

Chris George of MPE

Engineering Ltd. to get a

second opinion on the letter

from the Environment &

Parks

Department dated March

30.

It was not clear what the

department was actually

asking the village to do in

regards to further environmental

testing on the bistro

site.

The company that does

the testing, ParklandGEO

Ltd., reviewed the letter and

said we may need to do

another phase 2, which

would be very costly.

No decision was made.

New businesses

Two new business

licences were issued for

Delburne Liquor and

Delburne Foods (previously

Supervalu) and a third

for Dodong’s Foods which

will offer ready-to-cook

Philipino products.

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB July 28'22 3


MORRIN COUNCIL

Council unsure about owning

contaminated property

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative reporter

ECA Review

Morrin village council sounded

unsure about whether or not to acquire

a contaminated property with an

unpaid tax bill. The discussion was

held at the July 20 council meeting.

The council meeting agenda package

contained some information about the

former Gas Plus property which is

located on Main Street Morrin; at previous

council meetings councillors

have discussed the fact an unpaid tax

bill is connected to the property along

with an underground contamination

which apparently was linked to the

property’s past use as a service station.

The documentation was correspondence

between the village and Alberta

Environment and some of it was dated

2021.

Village Chief Administrative Officer

(CAO) Annette Plachner stated that the

Municipal Government Act (MGA)

may contain a clause that makes the

village responsible for the contamination

clean-up if the municipality takes

ownership of that property.

Mayor Chris Hall stated he wondered

if in 45 years the contamination

may have lessened; he also wondered

how serious the contamination was.

Councillors discussed having the property

tested, and noted that they were

not sure how to do that.

Coun. Lorraine MacArthur stated

she was hesitant to take the property if

the village faced a large clean-up bill.

During discussion it was noted that

the property in question sometimes

has a smell associated with it.

School details

Council held a public hearing for a

re-zoning application, then dealt with

that application and a subsequent subdivision

request all for the property

the new school is being built on.

During the public hearing Palliser

Regional Planning Services staffer

Garry Wilson presented to councillors

the re-zoning application from the

former Starland School Division, now

called Prairie Land School Division, to

re-zone the new school property from

commercial to community services.

Wilson noted years ago it was likely

thought the property in question might

someday be used for new businesses.

For the school to be located there it

needed to be re-zoned.

No concerns were aired about the

application and after the public

hearing was closed councillors unanimously

approved second and third

readings of the re-zoning bylaw.

Then Wilson presented the subdivision

application.

The school division requested a subdivision

for the old gymnasium to sit

on its own parcel so that it can be sold

to another group.

Councillors unanimously approved

the subdivision request.

Drumheller seniors6

Coun. M’Liss Edwards presented a

request via email from the Drumheller

and District Seniors Foundation that

Morrin council approve extending the

foundation’s loan by between $2 million

to $3 million which would allow

the foundation to expand a facility.

Edwards noted without the loan

extension the addition cannot be built.

Edwards stated as far as she knew

the loan extension would not affect the

village’s requisition.

The CAO responded she thought an

increased loan must affect Morrin’s

requisition. Edwards responded she

knew that the foundation wants to

borrow an additional $2 million for the

addition.

Coun. MacArthur stated she felt the

foundation should have sent a formal

letter for this request and Plachner

agreed.

“Why can’t people do that?” asked

MacArthur.

Edwards responded the foundation

doesn’t expect the loan to be as much

as $3 million.

“They don’t expect it to be that

much,” said Edwards.

MacArthur asked how other

member municipalities were contacted

and Edwards responded some members

have already approved extending

the loan.

“They’ve already approved it” said

Edwards. “Drumheller’s approved it,

Delia’s approved it.”

MacArthur responded she would not

approve it until she saw a letter from

the foundation explaining how big the

loan would be and whether it affects

Morrin’s requisition.

Councillors agreed to request such a

letter from the foundation.

Service station

During council reports Mayor Hall

noted he’s had discussions with UFA

managers from the Calgary office

about getting a service station built in

Morrin.

“He said Morrin is on the list,” said

Hall, referring to communities where

a UFA service station has apparently

been considered.

Mayor Hall stated UFA plans to send

staff out in the fall to investigate the

feasibility of developing a service station

in Morrin.

Councillors discussed available

property in the village.

Lions Club

Council received a response from

the local Lions Club regarding several

requests the village council made at a

previous meeting all related to the

Main Street park. Previously councillors

asked if the club would be

interested in painting the gazebo and

adding lights.

The Lions Club declined, noting

they liked the way the gazebo looks

as-is and lights could be set up temporarily

as needed. They also asked if

the sign could be moved.

Council agreed the sign can be

moved as the club requested.

REAL ESTATE/HOMES

Voices support for RCMP’s ‘call to action’

at the Stettler location is September 11 from 11am-3pm

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism

Initiative reporter

ECA Review

Big Valley village council will

support the RCMP’s bargaining

unit’s efforts to remain

Alberta’s primary provincial

police force. The decision to support

a “call to action” was made

at the July 14 regular meeting of

council.

Village Chief Administrative

Officer (CAO) Elaine

Macdonald presented councillors

with a document somewhat

similar to one they’d already

read at a previous council

meeting on a request from

Mayor Dan Houle.

Mayor Houle asked that councillors

reconsider a “Call to

Action” request from the

RCMP’s bargaining unit, the

National Police Federation

(NFP), that the village voice

support for the RCMP amidst

the provincial government’s

quest for a provincial police

force.

Houle explained the village

originally did not support the

letter because councillors

thought it came from the provincial

government.


Houle stated he supported the

RCMP and wondered, with

changes to community peace

officers and sheriffs, if Alberta

actually needs another police

force.

CAO Macdonald noted the

RCMP will still have to remain

in Alberta anyway for certain

federal investigations.

Councillors unanimously

approved putting their support

behind the RCMP.

Electronic bylaw

The village held a public

hearing for Bylaw 869

Electronic Transmission of

Documents, which was called to

order at 6:30 p.m. by Mayor

Houle. The CAO noted there

were no members of the public

present for the public hearing,

so it was closed.

Material included in the

agenda package showed the

bylaw allows residents to

receive certain information

through electronic means such

as email, and also included an

email authorization form that it

appears residents would be

required to fill out.

Later in the meeting councillors

approved all readings of the

bylaw to bring it into effect.

BIG VALLEY COUNCIL

Emergency management

Councillors examined and

approved two documents

related to emergency management,

Bylaw 870 Regional

Emergency Management and

the Stettler Regional

Emergency Management

Partnership Agreement.

CAO Macdonald noted the

bylaw is mandatory under the

MGA, and defines how such

actions as the declaration of a

state of local emergency will be

conducted.

Mayor Houle asked how such

things are handled if village

councillors are out of town or

otherwise unable to respond.

Macdonald noted the bylaw

states the declaration has to be

made by a specific committee of

the mayor with one councillor

or two councillors so that

should cover the problem.

Councillors then looked at the

agreement; they discussed

requirements such as liability

insurance.

Houle noted that so much

insurance is needed now that it

seems nobody wants to have fun

anymore.

Councillors discussed tabling

the agreement to see if any

other partners had concerns

Planning requirement cancelled

Daniel Gonzalez

ECA Review

The cancellation of a deferred

reserve dedication, established by the

Red Deer Regional Planning

Commission in 1977, was brought to

council at the July 19 regular meeting.

According to the Director of

Community Services, Todd Pawsey,

the planning requirement outlined

that subdivisions reserve 10 per cent of

land for the municipality.

A lease expansion application for

NE20-35-9-W inquired about the location

of the deferred reserve.

According to the planning requirement,

15.9 acres of the 159-acre area

would act as the deferred reserve.

Administration noted that there is

no defined area, and the county

should not have exercised that option

PAINTEARTH COUNCIL

45 years ago.

The county could take the land at

any time by giving notice to the landowner

for school or municipal

purposes.

Discussions with the Subdivision

Planner at the Palliser Regional

Municipal Services (PRMS), Gary

Wilson, noted that the PRMS can

remove the deferred reserve caveat at

any time.

Council moved to have the caveat of

a deferred reserve from the land title.

Administration will communicate

with the landowner to receive a letter

of acknowledgement.

STETTLER TOWN COUNCIL

Town of Stettler awards reservoir

job, saves thousands on tender

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism initiative reporter

ECA Review

The Town of Stettler awarded its

water reservoir painting tender to a

Calgary company, and it turns out the

town will save some money on the

project after all.

The decision to award the tender was

made at the July 19 regular meeting of

council.

Director of Operations Melissa

Robbins presented councillors with the

results of a request for proposal (RFP)

for painting of the large concrete water

reservoir located adjacent to the fire

department headquarters on 47th Ave.

It appeared issuing a new RFP after

some challenges with a previous contractor

paid off for the town.

Town council previously awarded

painting of the water reservoir to a

company called AlumaSafway, which

bid just over $41,000 for the job. As they

were not able to do the work in the fall

of 2021, the job was bumped to 2022.

However, Robbins reported at a previous

meeting AlumaSafway

approached the town with concerns


about inflation, which Robbins stated

wasn’t unusual in the current

economy but the company and the

town were unable to come to an agreement

on how much more Stettler

should pay for the job.

As out turned out AlumaSafway told

the town it would need between $98,000

to $105,000 to do the work, and Robbins

noted she wasn’t able to negotiate a

better deal with the company.

Town council eventually withdrew

the offer to AlumaSafway and

instructed Robbins to re-list the job.

Two bids were received and the low

one was actually lower than what

AlumaSafway originally asked for.

Robbin’s report noted a Calgary

company called AG Creations bid

$37,000 to paint the water reservoir,

while another company, United

Supreme Group Inc., bid $447,442,

which Robbins noted during her presentation

illustrated “extreme

differences” between the two bids.

It seemed, stated Robbins, the much

higher bid from United Supreme Group

Inc. included repairs to the concrete

structure.

She stated she did reference checks

STARLAND COUNCIL

Levy on sand and gravel

Daniel Gonzalez

ECA Review

Starland County will introduce a

levy on sand and gravel pits through a

new bylaw presented at the July 20 regular

meeting.

The proposed bylaw titled the

Community Aggregate Payment Levy

would apply to all sand and gravel

businesses that operate in Starland

County.

The revenues from the levy rate of

$0.40 per tonne of sand and gravel will

pay for infrastructure and other costs

in the municipality. The new policy

will outline procedures to be followed

and ensure bylaw enforcement.

According to Chief Administrative

Officer (CAO) Shirley Bremer, the

county will provide forms to monitor

the levy.

Businesses must complete the forms

within 30 days at the end of March,

June, September and December.

Penalties for late payments will be

imposed, with failure to report shipments

costing $2,500 with an

additional $5,000 penalty within 12

months.

Council and staff will report known

sites to public works administration to

notify owners and operators of the

requirements and provide them with

report forms.

CAO Bremer noted that although

administration and peace officers will

enforce the bylaw, it will also rely on

the honour system.

Council moved to read and approve

the bylaw.

Streamlining fee

A new bylaw will streamline the fee

process for municipal services in

Starland County.

The Municipal Services Fee bylaw

will repeal two bylaws from 2000 and

2005, which will list all rates and fees

for the various services, permits and

licences offered by Starland County.

CAO Bremer outlines that this will

be more efficient for ratepayers as they

can find a majority of costs for the different

services in one location.

Prices and services listed under the

new bylaw include administration and

finance, Ag Service Board, cemeteries,

operations, parks and recreation, planning

and development, protective

services and utilities.

All fees in each category have been

reviewed, updated, added or removed

due to lack of applicability or

relevance.

Due to the price of services offered in

Starland County changing, council

will review the bylaw annually to

ensure consistency or adjust prices

accordingly.

Council unanimously moved to

approve the implementation of the new

bylaw that will take effect Jan. 1, 2023..

Kish property

An update on the clean-up for the

Kish property located on 2975AH,

Rumsey, Alta. was presented to

council.

The property, described as a “hoarder’s

house,” contained several

computers, four loads of tires, four

loads of metals and 6 barrels of

cooking oil as items listed on the

cleanup.

With cleanup on the property and

yard complete, it has been boarded up

and fenced off for the time being.

A sea-can on the property contained

equipment and machinery. Council

intends to bring the sea-can back to

Starland County.

Although it is a tax sale property

with an interested buyer, there was a

discussion about demolishing the

property.

Council decided it would not be costeffective

as it would require a $20,000

assessment to check for asbestos in the

house with another estimated $10,000

to move it.

The property will continue to be

maintained and sealed off. No decision

was made on what will happen to the

sea-can or its contents.

Council moved to accept the report

as information.

A fool’s errand

Brenda Schimke

ECA Review

Once again, the Canadian

Constitution takes a bite out of Dr.

Brian Day’s 11-year pursuit to overturn

Canada’s public health care

system. A private-health care advocate

and investor, Dr. Day had his latest

appeal dismissed by the B.C. Court of

Appeal. His failed argument, people

have the constitutional right to privately

purchase health care when the

public system takes too long.

It’s a lesson that supporters of Pierre

Poilievre, Danielle Smith and Brian

Jean should consider.

Dr. Day’s lawyer’s argument focused

on Section 7 of the charter, which

reads, “Everyone has the right to life,

liberty and security of the person and

right not to be deprived thereof except

in accordance with the principles of

fundamental

justice.”


His argument

failed, yet again,

to meet the conditions

under

Section 1, which

puts limitations

around individual

rights and

freedoms. Dr.

Day was unsuccessful

in

proving private

health care

delivery wouldn’t

negatively impact

the public

system.

Throughout

the Canadian

constitution, there is an overriding

theme of a society that values fairness

and needs based over individual

rights. The equalization program and

public health care are two such

examples.

Another example was when the

courts found that COVID vaccination

restrictions in public areas, airplanes

and workplaces during a pandemic

were not unconstitutional. Everyone

had the right not to be vaccinated but

everyone didn’t have the right to put

others in danger.

The same argument applied to the

Ottawa occupation and border blockades—they

became illegal, not because

people don’t have the freedom to protest—but

they don’t have the right to

take away the livelihood or the

peaceful existence of others.

The Constitution also got in the way

of former Premier William Aberhart’s

legislation to assert Alberta’s independence

over currency, Preston

Manning’s elected Senate push, and

Stephen Harper’s move to change the

rules for judicial appointments to the

Supreme Court.

In 2014, Prime Minister Stephen

Harper appointed Marc Nadon to the

Supreme Court even though unqualified.

In a pre-emptive move, Harper

included a provision in the 2013 budget

bill that would change the appointment

eligibility to match Naden’s

qualifications.

In a 6 - 1 decision, a majority of justices

on the top court ruled that Nadon

didn’t qualify to join them in the court.

In a separate opinion, they ruled

Supreme Court provisions in the

budget bill are void because the legislative

branch does not have the power to

make amendments to the constitution

unilaterally. Constitutional amendments

also require the approval of

seven provinces representing 50 per

cent of the

population.

Have ‘these

per cent population conundrum that

has tripped up all those before?

How do ‘these three’ plan to get

around a Canadian justice system

which has a reputation for being one of

the strongest independent judiciaries

in the world?

Dr. Day’s persistence in bringing his

privatization argument before multiple

courts year after year and getting the

same decision—‘unconstitution’al—

could be labelled a fool’s errand.

The previous attempts by right-wing

leaders to change the constitution

through legislation has ended the

same way—‘unconstitutional’.

For ‘these three’ to promise the ‘all

but impossible’, is not only a fool’s

errand, but it shows complete disregard

for their supporters who, today,

absolutely believe these promises are a

‘done deal’ once their candidate is

elected.

No one is safe

in America

Dear Editor,

America is a divided country: blue

states (progressives/liberals) versus

red states (conservative).

On the conservative side, 27 states

have enacted voter suppression laws to

restrict or prevent minorities from

having political equality with white

folks.

They have enacted anti-abortion

laws that will now come into effect

since the US Supreme Court overturned

Rove vs. Wade, the landmark

court decision which legalized abortion

in America. Those laws will deny

women the right to choose their own

destinies.

The same “red states” have passed

or are passing laws that will prevent

teachers from discussing the problems

of racism and bigotry in America.

We’re seeing the same states banning

books in schools and in public

libraries.

Those same “red states” reject any

kind of meaningful legislation concerning

gun violence in America.

Why? Answer: The gun lobby, the

National Rifle Association (NRA) and

the Grand Old Party (GOP), often used

interchangeably with the word

Republican, have sold many

Americans the idea that ownership of

semi-automatic weapons and military

grade weapons (AR-15s and AK-47s, for

example) will protect Americans from

“the bad guys”.

Is America safer than Canada or any

other democracy because it allows

civilians to buy such weapons or to

participate in unregulated armed

militias?

Hmm? Right now, the U.S. experiences

1.5 mass shootings (four or more

people killed and or wounded per incident)

per day. In 2021, 45, 030

Americans lost their lives to gun

violence.

So far this year (2022) 23,701

Americans have died from gun violence

(source: Gun Violence Archive).

Of those, 176 children (birth - 11 years

of age) have died, 651 teenagers have

died and 32 police officers have died.

Consequently, no one is safe in

America. Not in churches. Not in

schools. Not in shopping malls. Not at

concerts. Not on the highways. Not at

social events and not even when

attending funerals or weddings.

So, why do the conservatives and the

gun lobby push their gun agenda?

Bottom line: To sell fear and to sell

guns.

The gun industry is big business.

Consequently, Americans own more

guns than any other people on this

planet, and, as a result, suffer more

deaths and wounded than any other

people except for those involved in

wars (the war in the Ukraine, the

proxy wars in the Middle East, or the

sectarian/religious wars in Africa).

The individual who wrote the article

“Should terrify any thinking person”

is an example of a person selling fear

and misinformation.

In my opinion, he wants to see

Canadians have the same access to

deadly guns as the Americans.

The writer fails, like the GOP and

the gun lobby, to tell the people that

they can still purchase pistols, rifles

and shotguns. No one is suggesting

otherwise, but the gun lobby continues

to push the ‘fear factor’.

PARLIAMENT

The Liberals’ ego-driven firearms policy

by Damien C. Kurek, M.P.

(Battle River—Crowfoot)

Violent and

serious crime

has intensified

since the

Liberals took

office in 2015.

Driven by a

failed, doublepronged

approach of

being soft-oncrime

while

simultaneously

stomping on the rights

of law-abiding Canadians,

the Liberals have managed

to jeopardize the safety of

Canadians more than ever

before.

In the past few weeks,

reports of political interference

in the senseless killing

of 22 people by a deranged

gunman have inundated

headlines across the nation.

The written notes of Nova

Scotia RCMP Supt. Darren

Campbell, which was

released as part of the Mass

Casualty Commission

probe, shows that in the

early stages of the investigation,

RCMP Commissioner,

Brenda Lucki, pressured the

RCMP referencing promises

she made to the Minister

and the Prime Minister.

It is alarming to see once

again just how low the

Liberals will sink to push

their agenda.

Many of the firearms

used by gangs to terrorize

our communities

and to conduct

numerous types of

illegal activity are

smuggled from the

United States or from

other points of entry.

Illegal gun trafficking

is a major issue

that is largely overlooked

in the context of

the Liberals’ public safety

policy. Preventing criminals

from attaining weapons

before they can commit violence

should be the

objective.

The circumstances surrounding

Bill C-21 are

further proof of the Liberals’

commitment to ignoring evidence

on their political

crusade to ban firearms.

We want to see action on

violent crime by all sides,

but the Liberals and their

Public Safety Minister need

to put egos and partisanship

aside for the sake of

Canadians. While this is

clear, the Liberals continue

to take firearms away from

those who follow the law and

are also amending the criminal

code to reduce penalties

for serious crimes.

Ironically, this includes

UCP contestant

Smook explains

rural platform

Advertorial

Kevin Smook has outlined

his priorities for growing

and sustaining rural communities.

Included are

commitments to help rural

municipalities and landowners

collect unpaid

oil-and-gas taxes and lease

payments; combat rural

crime; improve medical

transportation; and

support agricultural

societies.

Smook notes the

frustration rural

municipalities are

facing in collecting

unpaid oil-and-gas

taxes and plans to

push the Minister to

give counties more

powers if education on

their existing powers

is deemed insufficient.

To combat rural crime,

Smook is pledging to support

pressuring the federal

government to fill federal

justice vacancies (2017

vacancies took until 2020 to

be filled), reform early

release from court-imposed

sentences to discretionary

parole for repeat offenders,

and implement stronger

penalties for property

crimes.

On the health file, Smook

wants the province to sit

down with stakeholders to

create a plan to combat

ambulance and paramedic

shortages. He’s also pledged

to advance an audit that

could see more local services

provided instead of

transporting residents to

other care centres and

explore a plan to help

municipalities innovate in

assisting with medical

transport.

With increased costs to

heat large facilities

and power

as well as continued

decreased revenue

from

rentals for

societies,

This builds on his earlier

commitments to seek support

through suspension of the

small business tax, support

for families by seeking a ‘reindexing’

of the

non-rebatable tax amount,

and an exploration of

funding independent practices

It begs the question why?

Dear Editor,

It begs the question why?,

regarding why no Alberta leadership

candidate wants the

RCMP instead of a provincial

police force.

In my opinion, the answer is

obvious to anyone who looks

beyond the RCMP union propaganda,

has followed the Nova

Scotia mass murder investigation,

the SNC Lavalin affair,

and the Aga Khan, Trudeau

cosy-up.

The RCMP brass and bureaucracy

follow Prime Minister

Trudeau’s wishes.

In responding why they didn’t

charge Prime Minister Trudeau

for his illegal activity in the Aga

Khan vacation; the response

was “that it would have undermined

confidence in the

government.”

admitted that she interfered in

OBITUARY

Motherhood was her great labour of love

Celia Ruth Elizabeth Richardson

was born June 3, 1942, in Lisnaskea, N.

Ireland and passed away July 7, 2022 .

Her father: Ernest Walter Patterson

was born Enniskillen, Northern

Ireland and her mother: Martha Elliott

Patterson (neé Graham) was born

Dysart, Scotland.

Her sisters: Pamela Redmond, Judith

(Ron) Krebs.

Husband: Wayne Irwin Richardson.

Daughters: Karen (Alain) Desgagné,

Astri (Zvjezdan) Patz, Inga

Richardson, and Susan (Kevin)

Packer.

Grandsons: Domenic and Gabriel

Desgagné, Alexander and Jason Patz ,

Karsten, Koen and Leo Packer.

Granddaughters: Ida, Thalia and

Katarina Packer.

Susan was predeceased by her parents

and brother-in-law Howard

Redmond.

Celia was born into a farming family

in Northern Ireland. Her early life was

marred by the death of her father from

cancer two months after her twin sisters’

birth in 1946.

Her mother moved

her girls to

Edinburgh, Scotland

where she had more

support from her

sister and her

friends.

There, Celia

became very close to

her Aunt Betty and

Uncle George. Their

boys were older and

her uncle became a

surrogate father to


Celia was a

playful and energetic

grandmother who

adored her

grandchildren, doted

on them, and was

in turn adored

by them.

her. He enjoyed singing baritone arias

and took Celia to concerts, instilling in

her a love of classical music. He also

took her on long hikes in the Pentland

Hills, exposing her to the joys of the

countryside.

Her aunt was a bookstore manager,

so ensured that Celia was well-read.

Celia’s love of animals probably

began on regular outings to the

Edinburgh Zoo. She was delighted by

the daily penguin parade and proximity

to the zoo also allowed her to

indulge in many elephant rides.

At home, she cared for and trained

her family’s pet Boxer dog (named

Bracken after a fern native to Scotland

– this was the first of two dogs to carry

that name).

Her first job was in a pet store

feeding various animals and birds.

They occasionally escaped from their

cages on Celia’s watch.

As a girl, summer holidays meant

returning to an uncle’s farm in

Northern Ireland. She had fond memories

of him squirting milk into her

mouth directly from the cow, of being

chased by a gander (not so fond a

memory) and of exploring the farm

environment with Mitchell, an older

cousin.

The rest of summer was spent at

home in Scotland, at the seaside or on

the promenade, enjoying gelato, licorice

and curry. And rain.

Celia’s first job as a young adult was

as a clerkess for the Scottish government,

which she kept until she

emigrated to Canada at age 21.

Her mother had been encouraged to

emigrate to Edmonton by friends who

had done so a few years before. Celia

was not keen but acquiesced when her

mother and sisters said they would not

go if she was not with them.

As a child, family and friends called

her by her second name, Ruth, and like

Ruth from the Bible, she moved when

those she loved moved.

Celia soon found herself happy in

her new country. She obtained employment

with the Alberta Department of

Health and Welfare.

She discovered that the sun was

more dependable in Alberta than in

Scotland, and much more enjoyable

than the rain. She enjoyed countless

hours soaking it up, often to the detriment

of her comfort for a few days.

Celia also found the neighbours

quite friendly – one in particular. She

married Wayne on Oct. 1, 1966. Three

months later, Wayne was transferred

to a CIL office in New Toronto and the

couple relocated to Bramalea, Ont.

There Celia took an accounts payable

position with Carter Carburetor

which she held until the arrival of their

first daughter in 1970.

All her time in Bramalea was then

devoted to raising her family. Celia was

kind-hearted and caring and had considered

taking nursing training. So,

although she was initially uncertain

whether motherhood was right for her,

she took to it immediately. Three more

daughters arrived.

She was a generous and loving

mother who always made delicious

meals for her little girls, clothed them

with many dresses she

made, and took them

to and from activities.

She didn’t omit

essential training in

the finer things in life

– regular mother and

daughter walks were

taken to the local Sara

Lee cheesecake

factory.

She grew abundant

tomatoes, peppers and

some Concord grapes,

enjoyed knitting and

embroidering scenes of flowers and

birds, cared for the family dog and

took drawing classes at a local college.

Somehow, she also managed to keep

a spotless home, and look flawlessly

elegant while doing it.

In 1980, Wayne and Celia moved

back to the family farm in Brownfield.

She had lived most of her life in large

cities and the transition to country life

was not easy for her– acres of garden,

gravel roads and tiny motorhome

kitchens on family vacations.

Here, not as much sewing – dresses

were not everyday school clothes – but

other things emerged to fill her time.

Hungry teenagers meant lots of time in

the kitchen and perfecting the charcoal

barbecue.

She had a knack for finding the best

recipes but many meals were delivered

with an apology – her standard was

perfection.

She cultivated many houseplants,

but (cacti aside), they tended not to

thrive, to her chagrin.

A driver’s license became a necessity

but learning to drive as an adult was

approached with some trepidation.

However, the pickup soon became the

family taxi and she was a busy driver.

In Alberta, Celia’s love of animals

translated into more dogs (all rescues),

a love affair with horses (not reciprocated),

painstakingly handfeeding

rejected newborn kittens and endlessly

removing quills from her last Boxer

(until she decided he needed a porcupine-free

city environment).

One day later in life, Celia opened

the front door to find a new black ‘cat’.

It had white stripes. She calmly

reached down and stroked its lovely

soft tail a few times without incident.

Celia was a very private person but

Wayne and her daughters remember

her creativity and flair for the dramatic.

Celia had natural artistic

ability. She could also quote

Shakespeare and Kipling, and her

spontaneous composition of rap lyrics

amused the few who were lucky

enough to hear them.

She loved to laugh -- Herman comics


and Ken Davis comedy sketches left

her almost breathless.

Celia loved music her entire life (for

years she had the C&W radio station

on much of the day) and delighted

attending musical and theatrical performances

in Alliance, Coronation,

Castor and Rosebud with family. Her

musical tastes covered the gamut of

genres, although she preferred

rhythmic toe-tapping pieces.

Her very keen ears also gave

her the ability to automatically,

and mostly

unconsciously, adopt the

accent of the person she was

speaking to, and sound

Canadian, apart from occasional

use of a British phrase.

This was on display in Celia’s

sole theatrical endeavour

(playing the role of a German

spy in a Brownfield performance).

Celia put her own spin on what

it looked like to be a farmer’s wife.

When the nest was empty, Celia had

time for more hikes in the countryside.

She caught Wayne’s rock collecting

habit (and gave him a fossil collecting

one), expanded her use of nature’s artistry

to decorate the house, and happily

accompanied Wayne to local fairs and

craft markets. She also attended and

enjoyed many AAMDC conventions

and Agricultural Service Board tours

with Wayne.

She loved to watch movies with him,

read for hours with a dictionary by her

side and enjoyed many games of

Scrabble. And she eagerly anticipated

trips to the cities to visit her sisters and

her daughters’ families.

When Celia enjoyed something, she

allowed herself to enjoy it fully. This

meant occasional tummy aches from

too many Spanish peanuts

Richardson

(“Scrumpdiddlyumptious!”) or too

much homemade ice cream (often the

couple made and polished off a litre or

two late at night after the girls were in

bed – at least until they grew wise to

the routine).

There was often a Majesty magazine

on the kitchen table beside the empty

peanuts bag when the girls returned

home from school; she

always made a point of

keeping up with news about

Britain’s royal family.

As grandchildren began

to arrive, it meant occasional

(happy) exhaustion

from agreeing one too many

times to a child’s request for

“One more game, PLEASE

Nana!” Celia was a playful

and energetic grandmother

who adored her grandchildren,

doted on them, and

was in turn adored by them.

Celia was sensitive and compassionate,

noticing and caring for anyone

who seemed to be overlooked, particularly

the elderly.

She hand-wrote newsy letters and

cards to friends and family, in particular

her beloved sisters (Pamela and

Judith), cousins (Mitchell and his wife

Jessie, Joan and her husband Wesley,

Fletcher and his wife Evelyn, and

Allan) and childhood friends (Marjorie

and Eleanor).

But motherhood was her great

labour of love; she loved her daughters

sacrificially, was their biggest cheerleader

and gave them the great

blessing of a peaceful and happy

childhood.

We miss you so much Celia, Mum,

Nana. You were the star of our show.

Rest in peace with your Saviour.

STETTLER COUNTY

Council votes

down electric car

The County of Stettler won’t be

joining the ranks of electric vehicle

owners quite yet, as council voted

down a proposal to purchase such a

vehicle for delivery jobs.

The 3 to 4 vote was held at the July 13

regular meeting of council.

County Chief Administrative Officer

(CAO) Yvette Cassidy presented a

report to councillors about an opportunity

for Stettler County to purchase a

plug-in hybrid electric vehicle for the

Public Works department’s use.

Cassidy stated the county has been

looking into the idea of an electric

vehicle for a few years and it’s now

made easier by a provincial government

grant program.

She said staff have been working on

purchasing an SUV type vehicle for

the parts department to run parts to

staff in the field.

However, one hurdle to confirming

the grant money was to get a vehicle

confirmed for delivery within 12

months. It appears the Public Works

department was able to leap this

hurdle.

In a report to council by Director of

operations Rick Green councillors

heard a Stettler dealership was able to

find a vehicle.

“Public Works received a sole source

quote... as other local brands do not

have current availability of similarsized

plug-in hybrid electric vehicles,”

stated Green’s memo.

“The county has been arranging

participation in available grants

through the Municipal Climate

Change Action Centre Electric

Vehicles for Municipalities Grant

(EVM).

The grant

should provide a

minimum of

$7,000 against the

purchase price.

“This purchase

was not budgeted

in 2022 but we are

looking at fairly

long delivery

dates and are

looking for direction

to order now

and attribute

costs to the 2023

budget.

Acceptance of

grant funding will

be confirmed

prior to any order

confirmations.”

The CAO stated

that even if the

grant fell through,

the Public Works

department had

room in its 2023

budget to purchase

the hybrid

vehicle.

Green added that

if something bigger

needed to be delivered,

such as barrels

for example, a larger

vehicle was also

within the county

fleet for those jobs.

He explained that

the vehicle would be

plugged in right in

the Public Works

shop and kept ready

to go all the time

and that the vehicle shouldn’t be any

problem.

However, it needed to be pre-ordered

now to include in the 2023 budget.

Coun. Les Stulberg stated he was

opposed to an electric vehicle and

would vote against its purchase

because two thirds of the county’s

property taxes are paid by the oil and

gas industry while power plants pay

zero taxes to the county. He likened the

vehicle’s purchase to Stettler County

buying beef from foreign countries for

municipal events.

Coun. Justin Stevens asked about

the price of a recent pick-up truck purchase

Stettler County made. Green

answered the pick-up was a half-ton

truck with a V6 engine and was over

$50,000.

Coun. Dave Grover asked if the

Public Works building would have to

be expanded to accommodate the electric

vehicle. Cassidy answered no, no

expansion was necessary.

Coun. Ernie Gendre stated he would

support the vehicle’s purchase as times

change and he didn’t mind

experimenting.

During discussion quite a few jokes

were made about the ribbing county

staff may receive if they drove around

in an electric vehicle.

A motion to approve the purchase a

2022 plug-in electric hybrid at a purchase

price of $44,233 plus $2,211.65

taxes and $6.26 Amvic fee for a total

$46,4450.91 was defeated by 3 to 4 vote

with Coun. James Nibourg, Stevens

and Gendre in favour, Reeve Larry

Clark and Coun. Stulberg, Grover and

Mackay opposed.

After the vote it was stated the staff

would investigate purchasing a van as

a delivery vehicle which would be

included in the 2023 budget.

Charlotte (nee Castillo) and Trevor Usselman were married

on July 9, 2022 in Vacaville, Calif. U.S. The happy couple are

residing in Lethbridge, Alta.
