BIG VALLEY COUNCIL

29 to 31, 2022 but apparently has been

rescheduled.

“The Hivernant Métis Cultural

Society has extended an invitation to

Mayor (Dan) Houle to attend its first

Hivernant Rendezvous since the

COVID pandemic forced the postponement

of this annual celebration of

Métis history and culture,” stated the

society’s letter dated June 13, 2022.

“The society is very pleased to be

able to bring back this event which it

had presented for 16 years.

“I’m writing to ask if you could

request that your staff arrange for

Canadian

constitutional

monarchy,

several things that the village has

done in the past to facilitate the

rendezvous.

The requests included a $500 grant

from FCSS funds, use of Memorial

Park for a teepee and tents and use of

an area near the ball diamonds for

camping and tenting.

Macdonald clarified the event was

postponed from its original July 29 to

31 dates and the Hivernant Society

hasn’t provided the new dates.

Mayor Dan Houle suggested council

table the requests until a new date was

selected.

STETTLER

403-742-3740

1-800-371-3055

Macdonald noted that the

Hivernant Society should meet the

cultural criteria of the FCSS grant

guidelines.

Coun. Amber Hoogenberg wasn’t

sure council was allowed to grant the

FCSS funds if all details of an event

aren’t provided, but added she didn’t

see any problems with the society’s

other requests.

It was noted the request for

camping space probably should be

forwarded to the Ag Society.

Councillors decided to approve the

resolution to permit the Hivernant

Society to use Memorial Park

between Sept. 8 and Nov. 8.

They also passed a resolution to

table the request for FCSS funds until

the society can provide a date for the

event.

Street dance denial

Councillors unanimously denied a

request for FCSS funding for an

annual street dance after they agreed

the event didn’t fall under funding

criteria.

Macdonald presented a letter from

organizers of the annual Big Valley

street dance which requested $5,000

in FCSS funds to help cover expenses

for the event.

“There is $2,019 in a holding

account the village has which houses

donations people/companies have

made to various entities within the

village that is earmarked for the

street dance,” stated Macdonald in

her report to council.

The CAO provided FCSS funding

criteria to councillors and Mayor

Houle stated he wasn’t sure where the

street dance would fall in the criteria.

Macdonald stated it seemed the

street dance didn’t fall into the criteria

at all because FCSS funds aren’t

allowed to be spent on entertainment

or recreation activities. It was noted

the street dance was held in August.

Councillors decided to deny the

request.

STETTLER COUNTY COUNCIL

Feeder, gate must be removed from road allowance

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative reporter

ECA Review

The County of Stettler will instruct a

property owner to remove a feeder and

a gate from a public road allowance

after a neighbour complained he can’t

get his farm equipment down that

route. The decision was made at the

Sept. 14 regular meeting of council.

Allen Hennel appeared as a delegation

to council and said he farms south

of the Town of Stettler and requested

the council’s help with a road allowance

problem he’s facing.

Hennel stated he’s got a dispute with

a neighbour who is pasturing cattle on

a road allowance that Hennel also uses

to access his property. He described

the property in question as the west

half of 35-37-19.

KNEEHILL COUNTY COUNCIL

Equipment reserve used for ‘supply chain’ costs

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative reporter

ECA Review

Kneehill County council approved

drawing $55,000 from the capital equipment

reserve after quotes for two

trailers came in tens of thousands of

dollars higher than budgeted.

The decision was made at the Sept.

13 regular meeting of council.

Councillors heard a report from

Mike Ziehr, director of infrastructure,

who stated that two brand new trailers

the municipality was interested in are

priced much higher than anticipated.

“Kneehill County council had

approved the replacement purchase of

one end dump trailer and the new purchase

of a ‘Super B’ gravel trailer in

the 2022 capital equipment plan

budget,” stated Ziehr in his report to

council.

“Quotes have been received that

exceed the original amount budgeted.

“The end dump trailer was budgeted

for $79,000 and the ‘Super B’ trailer was

budgeted for $125,000.

“The quoted prices came in at $95,418

for the end dump trailer and $161,530


RCMP

for the ‘Super B’ trailer.

“The unstable nature of the current

vehicle and equipment purchasing

environment has led to increased

pricing on all aspects of the operations

department, including the replacement

of equipment and materials. Pricing

increases of this magnitude were not

expected and as such, not budgeted for.

“The additional funds required will

be allocated from the capital equipment

plan reserve. There are sufficient

funds in this reserve to cover this additional

$55,000 expenditure, which is

slightly increased to ensure any

unforeseen add ons are funded.”

During discussion Ziehr stated that

original prices included in the budget

were estimates.

He warned councillors it doesn’t

appear the “supply chain” cost

increases will be gone any time soon.

“It’s kind of a trend we’re seeing this

year...with increases in steel pricing,”

said Ziehr. “We truthfully don’t see

much of a decline in the future

coming.”

Coun. Wade Christie asked if this

would be the third ‘B’ train trailer

Ziehr’s department would have.

Hennel stated when the property

was first bought it had a fence on the

neighbour’s side but because the neighbour

doesn’t do any fencing the fence

in question fell down and wasn’t

replaced. Hennel stated the neighbour’s

cattle are on the road allowance

and the neighbour relies on Hennel’s

fence to keep them in, along with a new

gate the neighbour built to seal off the

road allowance.

Hennel stated the gate is too small to

fit his swather through so he’s cut off

from his land and he feels that

shouldn’t be allowed in the first place.

“To me it’s just not right,” said

Hennel.

A second issue is that the road allowance

has some banks and the

neighbour has placed a feeder on the

road allowance so there isn’t a clear

route through anyway.

Coronation RCMP

charge suspects with

property related offences

Submitted

Coronation RCMP received a report

of a break and enter in progress in

Halkirk, in the County of Paintearth

on Sept. 10. The suspects gained entry

by cutting the fence to the property

and three suspects were observed on

video stealing tools and equipment.

There was a getaway vehicle located

with a driver a kilometre away from

the site. Coronation, Consort and

Stettler RCMP officers attended and

set up containment.

With the assistance of the Red Deer

Police Dog Service officers they were

able to track and arrest two of the

three suspects observed on video and

the getaway driver in her vehicle. The

other suspect is still at large.

Coronation RCMP have charged

Donna-Lea Sharon Cameron (33) a resident

of Red Deer with break and enter,

mischief over $5,000 and theft over

$5,000.

Brandy Christine Carl (45) and

Daryl Springer (43) both a resident of

Red Deer were both charged with

break and enter, mischief over $5,000

and theft over $5,000; failing to comply

with a release order, and failing to

comply with probation.

Cameron was released on an undertaking,

Carl and Springer were

remanded into custody with the next

court appearance for all three set for

Oct. 14, 2022, at 11 a.m. in Coronation

Provincial Court;

With the assistance of the community

the RCMP were able to locate the

suspects who were observed on video

stealing tools and equipment.

Members of the public who want to

report suspect suspicious activity or

property related crime in their community

can call local police, or contact

Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS

(8477). Crime Stoppers is always

anonymous.

Ziehr responded yes, but the department

still has five end dumps while the

department is also looking to replace

all belly dump trailers.

He added that this will hopefully

reduce gravel stockpiles.

Coun. Christie said larger loads of

gravel are a good idea. “Every time you

dump and load gravel it costs money,”

said Christie.

Ziehr noted Kneehill County did perform

a cost analysis around the idea of

increasing gravel load sizes.

Reeve Jerry Wittstock asked if

second hand equipment being sold by

Kneehill County is also increasing in

value just as quotes for brand new

equipment are.

Ziehr responded Kneehill County

did sell some equipment at auction this

spring and he feels the county got some

very good dollar value for that

equipment.

Ziehr added that used equipment

prices are definitely higher than in

years past.

He further explained the municipality

uses multiple auction houses to

sell different equipment all in an effort

to get the best return.

Hennel feels the neighbour should

have a proper fence in place and stop

blocking the road allowance.

“He should fix his fence just like

everybody does,” said Hennel, adding a

new fence would run the full half mile.

County staff confirmed during the

meeting the road allowance in question

is registered as such and is public

property.

Coun. Dave Grover, who represents

the area in question, said the road

allowance should be open for Hennel to

move his equipment and bales down.

Coun. James Nibourg asked Hennel

if he’s tried to contact his neighbour

about this problem, and Hennel said

he’s tried but none of his calls were

ever returned, that’s why he contacted

Coun. Grover.

Grover added he brought it to council

because “nothing’s happening.”

Nibourg stated he had a similar situation

happen in his ward and an

approach that garnered results was

informing the property owner they

had to remove gates and equipment

from public property which would

require a new fence because otherwise

the cattle could be wandering at large.

Reeve Larry Clarke noted the feeder

Reeve Wittstock observed that even

though the county is paying more for

new equipment, that’s somewhat offset

as Kneehill is getting more for the

older equipment it sells.

Ziehr told council that he’s expecting

a spring or summer 2023 delivery for

the new equipment and the old equipment

will remain in use until then.

Coun. Ken King asked how staff are

taking into account supply chain problems

and inflation when looking into

the future, as this is the second time

this year council has approved dipping

into reserves because of unexpectedly

high prices.

Staff noted they’re in the process of

re-evaluating the capital equipment

plan and looking at contributions to

reserves with a likely recommendation

coming that reserve contributions be

increased for long term sustainability.

Councillors unanimously passed a

resolution allowing staff to draw

$55,000 from the capital equipment

replacement reserve to fund capital

equipment plan purchases for which

the quotes were higher than originally

budgeted.

is sitting on public property.

County Chief Administrative Officer

(CAO) Yvette Cassidy asked if the

neighbour is an absentee landowner.

Hennel stated the neighbour’s property

was originally owned by Clifford

Strandquist and when he passed away

ownership transferred to his son Brad

Strandquist who lives in Saskatchewan

and he rents the land out to someone

else.

During discussion county staff

stated a 72 hour warning could be

given to the neighbour to remove the

feeder and a warning that the gate isn’t

supposed to be there either.

Coun. Les Stulberg noted he doesn’t

have a problem in a case where

someone is grazing a road allowance

and it has no effect on anybody else but

nobody’s access should ever be cut off.

Councillors approved by resolution

that Stettler County contact both the

property owner and the renter and

inform them the gate and feeder must

be removed while pointing out the

neighbour will have to either build a

new fence or stop grazing the road

allowance because animal control services

would have to get involved if

cattle are wandering at large.

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB September 22'22 3


DELBURNE COUNCIL

Village helps fund medical clinic to keep it open

Brenda Schimke

ECA Review

Councillors confirmed they had

received positive feedback for their

decision to approve a $75,000 grant to

the Delburne Medical Centre during

the roundtable discussions at the regular

meeting of the Delburne village

council on Sept. 13, 2022,.

The monies came from the

restricted surplus community

enhancement account and can only be

used for medical expenses directly tied

to the on-going operation of the medical

clinic.

Although worried about this

unprecedented decision, Deputy

Mayor Jeff Bourne said, “It appears

most citizens are equally concerned

about the ongoing medical crisis”.

Dr. Kauchali, who also works out of

Sylvan Lake, and council members are

continuing discussions with Innisfail-

Sylvan Lake MLA Devin Dreeshen,

Red Deer County staff and others to

address long-term sustainability of the

clinic.

Snowflake Saturday

Amy Ritchie, manager of this year’s

Snowflake Saturday Market on Dec. 10

gave council an update. She will

arrange for photos with Santa and said

she would assist with the Parade of

Lights if needed. She requested

council waive the $300 rental fee for

the community hall on Dec. 9 to enable

early set up.

Council will consider her request.

Council is seeking quotes for fireworks.

The Red Deer company used in

the past has gone out of business.

There is still $2,800 in grant money

ear-marked for fireworks.

Unsightly properties

The author of an unsigned letter

said that the untidy condition of properties

along main street were a

disgrace.

Public Works Foreman, Gary

Rusaw, acknowledged that weeds do

grow up through the cracks and they

don’t have enough staff to keep on top

of this work. He is proposing adding a

fourth summer student next summer

to just do weed whacking.

The three students hired this

summer mowed seven hours per day,

five days a week just to keep up with

grass cutting.

Again, there was discussion on how

limited council’s powers were, even

with a bylaw, to force private owners

to maintain their properties on a

timely basis. Rusaw did confirm 99 per

cent of people who receive a notice to

clean up their properties did immediately

act on the request.

He noted, however, “they may not do

it to our standards, but what is

unsightly is an individual’s

perception.”

The writer of the letter is welcome to

come in and discuss their concerns

directly with the council.

Grass and weeds

A letter was received complaining

about the grass and weeds that are

half way up the chain link fences in

the dog park area and the park by the

golf course.

Rusaw believes the hiring of a

fourth student next year should

resolve this situation. Now that lawn

mowing has slowed down, weed

whacking has begun.

Safety at intersection

A letter from two residents

expressed continued concern about

the safety at the corner of 20 St. and 23

Ave. and the installation of a four-way

stop. Council said no decision had been

made to install a four-way stop.

The owner of Oops Fresh Market

has been working closely with the village

to make changes that hopefully

will improve parking behaviour in

those spots that impede road and

pedestrian safety.

It is only if these measures are ineffective,

that the council will have to

consider other options.

“Our responsibility is for the

common good. Our intent is to make it

safer for everyone,” said Coun. Ray

Reckseidler.

Utility billing

A property owner wrote to complain

about ongoing charges for water, garbage

pickup and recycling when the

services aren’t being used in the

winter. A letter will be sent to the complainant

explaining why the charges

continue and where the money goes.

The recycling and garbage fees are

charged per household, not per pickup,

so whether the services are used or

not, the village gets billed.

There is no water consumption fee

when water is turned off, but in the

case of both water and sewer, the basic

fees go into restricted surplus and are

then available for system maintenance

and replacement, both very costly

items for the village.

Park noise

Coun. Kathy Faulk said she had

received a number of verbal complaints

about the music in the park

being too loud. Users will be made

aware of the concern and will be asked

to be more respectful of the neighbours.

Music can be played in the park

from 7 am to 10 pm.

Victim Services volunteers

concerned

A copy of a letter from the Town of

Tofield to the Minister of Justice and

Solicitor General Tyler Shandro

regarding substantive changes to

Victim Services, sparked discussion.

The government has chosen to

replace local victim services with four

regional superboards. In November, it

will hire an additional 32 new

employees to support this organizational

change.

Chief Administrative Officer (CAO)

Karen Fegan, who sits on the soon-tobe

disbanded local Victim Services

board said, “the new system is not

going to help the people, local people

are doing the job now and know many

of those they assist.” Fegan gave an

example of one of their volunteers who

has worked for 27 years as a volunteer.

When queried about writing a letter

of concern to the government, it was

agreed one could, but it wouldn’t help

as the decision had already been made.

It was noted that local municipalities

had no input into the review.

Franchise fees

Councillors unanimously agreed

there would be no increases to the

franchise fees the municipality

charges ATCO for natural gas and

electricity.

The electricity franchise fee will

remain at 1.5 per cent, whereas the

current provincial cap is 20 per cent.

The franchise fee for natural gas will

remain at $21.6 per cent. The cap is 35

per cent.

Under the Municipal Government

Act, municipalities can charge utility

companies a franchise fee, calculated

as a percentage of the company’s

actual total revenue, for allowing them

exclusive rights to provide services

within their boundaries.

The franchise fees become a revenue

source for municipalities, but it does

not become an operating cost for the

utility company, but another line

charge for residents on their utility

bills. The councillors unanimously

agreed these franchise fees should be

kept as low as possible.

Administration report

It was agreed that the village office

would not be closed on Sept. 19 in

remembrance of Queen Elizabeth II

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB September 22'22 5


BASHAW COUNCIL

Council not sure how to handle loud noise complaints

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative reporter

ECA Review

Bashaw town council will reexamine

their land use bylaw (LUB) after

a resident complained about a noisy

business. The issue was discussed at

the Sept. 14 regular meeting of council.

Town Chief Administrative Officer

(CAO) Theresa Fuller provided councillors

with a letter of complaint from

resident N.D. Bamber dated Aug. 26. In

the letter Bamber stated, “Our home...

is 550 feet from the noise source. There

is the railway property, a row of trees

and shrubs, house and garages

blocking the noise. Even so on our deck

the sound level is peaking at 91.6 decibels

(Db) during unloading. The level

in the middle of Railway Ave. is at 93.4

Db.

Occupational Health & Safety (OHS)

limit for continual exposure is 85 Db

without hearing protection,” stated

Bamber.

Bamber stated he’s complained more

than once about this business’ noise

and added his research suggests the

Town of Bashaw doesn’t have the

proper bylaws in place to address

industrial-level noise that’s this close

to homes.

Fuller noted in her report the business

in question complies with the

public disturbance bylaw.

“Benchmark Commodities has been

operational for several years,” stated

Fuller’s report, noting the business

previously used sledge hammers and

now uses a skid steer vehicle.

“Several residents have placed complaints,

the area bylaw officer has

addressed them. However, based on

the Public Disturbance Bylaw 767-2015

they look at the operational hours and

compare them to quiet hours from the

bylaw (10 p.m. to 7 a.m.) and

Benchmark is compliant.”

Fuller then noted the general prohibition

part of the bylaw prohibits

“unreasonably loud” noise which “...

annoys, disturbs” residents, but added

a further section of the bylaw for

industrial purposes seems to contradict

the earlier section “...by providing

permission to industrial operations as

approved within the LUB.”

Fuller stated she’s been in regular

contact with Benchmark Commodities

which notified her they should be completed

their noisy work by the end of

August. To middle of September however,

as of the meeting, it seemed that

work was ongoing.

“Possible solutions (include) reduce

timeframes for operations or require

installation of sound barriers in order

to continue their processing operations,”

she added in her report.

Benchmark Commodities, according

to their website, is a commercial transport

business headquartered in

Ponoka, Alta. but with a rail operation

in Bashaw.

Fuller suggested changing the

public disturbance bylaw to better

mesh with the LUB’s rules about noise.

“In the interim it may be advisable

to add additional features to our public

disturbances bylaw,” she stated.

“Examples could be reference to the

LUB regarding objectionable conditions

and conditions around noise

volume or compliance with other legislation,”

added her report.

When asked if the business owner

had any suggestions, Fuller responded

the business stated they are

approaching the end of the noisy work

with the general manager estimating

the end of September for a target date.

When asked what other avenues the

town has to solve the problem if

mitigation doesn’t work, Fuller

answered there are enforcement

options including a stop order and the

CAO noted stop orders involve the

court system.

Coun. Kyle McIntosh noted he was

in the area when the work was going

on. “It’s loud,” said McIntosh.

Coun. Bryan Gust stated he was in

favour of revising the disturbances

bylaw to address issues like this one.

Fuller responded that some parts of

the disturbances bylaw could be

removed and the town could rely

entirely on the LUB rules on industrial

noise but also noted Db levels

didn’t need to be included because provincial

law covers those issues.

Mayor Rob McDonald stated industrial

operators should have less impact

on their neighbours but also realized

the town needed to work with their

industrial residents too.

Councillors unanimously passed a

resolution that town staff revise the

EDITORIAL

Canadian constitutional monarchy, best of the best

Brenda Schimke

ECA Review

For over 70 years Queen Elizabeth II

had committed her life to the service of

all peoples of the United Kingdom, the

Commonwealth and her realm which

includes Canada. She was, and now

King Charles III is, our Head of State

and Head of our Armed Forces.

Although primarily symbolic, the

Crown is exceptionally valuable. It

gives continuity, unity and cohesion in

the best of times and in the worst of

times. As head of state, our monarch

doesn’t have to play politics—and with

the current state of pettiness and divisiveness

amongst elected

politicians—it’s a relief to have a head

of state whose job is to serve all the

people and protect our constitutional

democracy.

What a contrast to republics where

the head of state, head of the armed

forces and head of government are one

and the same.

Power is so

much more

easily abused.

The evils of

colonialism—

slavery and the

exploitation of

indigenous peoples

and

resources in

countries

throughout the

Americas,

Africa and

Asia—is a stain

on the monarchy.

If white,

our forefathers

are equally guilty.

The monarchy, nor those of us who

have benefited from colonialism, can

take away the generational harms put

upon our indigenous peoples, but the

late Queen was an ally to all indigenous

peoples in her realm. She and

King Charles prioritized visiting and

listening to our indigenous, Métis and


A wise monarch

provides the stability of

government and

protects our constitution

and values—they are the

fail safe for our

democracy.

Inuit peoples. King Charles also shares

a common belief about the importance

of respecting and guarding our natural

environment.

The late Queen was always

respectful and supportive of French

culture in Quebec and Canadian bilingualism.

She furthered that

commitment to bilingualism in the

United Kingdom by insisting those

who hold the title of Prince of Wales

speak fluent Welsh as does King

Charles.

The Queen stepped across the street

into the Catholic side of Belfast, and

one handshake with former IRA commander

Martin McGuinness on June

27, 2012 helped jump start the peace

process between the protestants and

Catholics in Northern Ireland.

Her few words were powerful, “one’s

tradition does not diminish by

reaching out to show respect to

another.” Something elected politicians

are unable to do as they govern

for their base, not their country.

The Northern Ireland situation is far

from resolved, and unfortunately it

has taken a severe blow because of the

political decisions surrounding Brexit,

as has the rise in the Scottish independence

movement.

The Queen supported India,

Pakistan, Nigeria and many other

former colonies as they moved to

become republics. She did not take it

personally knowing that it was the will

of the people who mattered. Instead,

she opened her hand of welcome for

those who wanted to voluntarily

remain in an alliance of

Commonwealth countries—most of

whom accepted that invitation.

Her power came from a servant’s

heart, humility, small gestures, grace,

steadfastness, sincerity and decorum.

Her wisdom came from listening,

reading, learning, thinking, pondering

and meeting with everyone from the

world’s worst despots to religious

leaders of all

faiths, from a

multiplicity of

cultures to those

of varying social

and economic

status, from the

young to the old.

As the Queen

said in an

address, “not all

of us can do great

things, but we

can all do small

things with great

love”. Another

favourite quote

from one of her

Christmas messages,

“whatever life throws at us our

individual responses will be all the

stronger if we’re working together and

sharing that load.”

The grandeur and mysticism of our

royal family also plays an important

role. As humans we all crave ‘bigger

than life’ personalities to look up to or

gossip about. For many its athletes,

movie actors, entertainers, on-line

influencers or presidents and first

ladies. For us, it’s the royal family who

do mystic and grandeur like no one

else.

The significant point, however, is

that the pageantry of the royal family

is separated from the governing

branch of government. This separation

and continuity are strengths of our

constitutional monarchy versus a

republic. The head of state takes on the

role of grandeur while the elected officials

do the work of government. We

all remember how offended Canadians

were when the Justin Trudeau family

tried to play the grandeur card while

on a state visit to India in his first term

of office, or Mila Mulroney trying to

play ‘first lady’ of Canada.

A wise monarch provides the stability

of government and protects our

constitution and values—they are the

fail safe for our democracy. We need

look no further than what has

primarily as a ceremonial head as does

our King and Governor General. The

final country, Switzerland, the only

republic in the top 10, is unique in its

own right, offering a form of direct

democracy seen nowhere else in the

world, but it is also the world’s premiere

protector of dirty money and

dirty assets.

Queen Elizabeth II was a great sovereign

committing 70 years of service

to her people and to the protection of

constitutional democracies. King

Charles III seems as thoughtful and

aware of his role as sovereign and, too,

will be a steady hand in this season of

turmoil within democracies.

No system of government is perfect,

but the Canadian constitutional monarchy

and eight other parliamentary

democracies are the best of the best. So

why would we ever consider becoming

a lesser democracy by changing to a

republic?

Long live the King.

King Charles III was officially proclaimed the new British monarch on Sat. Sept. 10, 2022 at the

swearing in ceremony during the meeting of the Accession Council inside St. James’s Palace

in London to proclaim Charles as the new King following the death of Her Majesty Queen

Elizabeth II on Thurs. Sept. 8. Long Live the King.

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB September 22'22 7


VIEWPOINT

No reason given for declining application

Dear Editor,

I write this op-ed as a victim of

rogue administration, the ‘City

Planning Department’ for Bashaw.

The Town of Bashaw falls in the

‘City’ of Central Alberta, which it is

regulated by the

zoning bylaws


enacted by the City

of Calgary! The

‘City’ has enacted a

number of property

regulations that

require compliance

in order to have a

property in good

legal standing with

the municipality.

These bylaws contain

numerous rules

for residential properties

which are

against encroachment

by property owners’ structures,

including fences or other dividers that

exist between adjoining lands or city

properties.

Bylaw Number 9M2020 is one of the

enacted bylaws of the City of Calgary

and Alberta regarding encroachments

into city-owned land, streets and

easements.

It is common knowledge that fences

frequently encroach into city property

either into the rear lane, or across the

front of the property. These bylaws

therefore require that, a fence

encroaching from 0-0.34m will require

a consent letter which usually costs

$50.00.

However, if the encroachment is over

0.34, it will require an encroachment

agreement of a significantly higher

price. This connotes that 0.3m is therefore

the cutoff line for fences that

encroach onto City roads.

Where the encroachment is less than

the aforementioned, the City Planning

Department is supposed to simply

issue an encroachment Advisory

Stamp along with the Certificate of

Compliance without any waiting

period.

The Town of Bashaw has subsequently

enacted two bylaws with

regard to construction policies. This is

the Land Use Bylaw Number 780-2018

and the Bylaw to Regulate the

Development and Use of Land and

Buildings

Number 675-

2004. They

I believe that they provide that

no sign,

building, or

parking stall

may encroach

over or onto a

road unless

the person

responsible

for the

encroaching

object has

signed an

encroachment

agreement with the municipality,

and where required by the municipality,

maintains liability insurance of

at least $1 million and naming the

municipality as co-insured.

The bylaw further states that the

section aforementioned shall however

not apply to fascia signs encroaching

less than 30 cm over a road.

The Bylaws further provide that no

fence shall be constructed that is

located on public property unless for

internal lots, no higher than 2.0 m for

the portion of the fence that does not

extend beyond the foremost portion of

the principal building on the site and

1.0m for that portion of the fence that

does extend beyond the foremost portion

of the principal building on the lot.

The bylaws subsequently provides

for development that do not require a

development permit as the erection,

construction, or maintenance,

improvement or alteration of gates or

fences or other means of enclosure less

than 1.0 metres in height in front yards

or in side yards abutting a road, and

less than 2.0 metres in rear yards or in

other side yards, and the maintenance,

improvement and other alterations of

[council] acted either in

furtherance of selfinterest

or

discriminatory sense

against my rights.


any gates, fences or walls or other

means of enclosure.

The bylaw has however not been followed

in the Town Office in Bashaw

when it comes to my application for

encroachment.

Following the unappealing shape of

the fence of our new house, I requested

the town foreman, Patrick Taylor, if I

could build new fence and encroach a

little bit on city property, an encroachment

within the length acceptable

under the bylaws. Patrick saw I

flagged where I was going to erect the

new fence and assured me of getting

permission from the town manager

(Chief Admintrative Officer,“CAO”)

Theresa Fuller.

He later informed me that he had

secured the permission and gave me a

go ahead with building of the fence,

which I did.

For purposes of legal documentation,

I requested for a consent letter by the

‘City’ Manager in accordance with

Part II section 5(1). However, the same

was not delivered. After waiting for

two weeks, I decided to visit the office

to inquire on the same.

On arrival, I got contradictory information

to the one I had been assured

and acting upon by Patrick Taylor and

Fuller. They averred that I had not

been given anything in writing confirming

the encroachment application

and that permission can only be given

by town council.

Parent worried boy not learning at Hughenden

School but being promoted anyway

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative reporter

ECA Review

A mom who sends her 15-year-old

son to Hughenden Public School is concerned

he’s being promoted to a new

grade that he cannot handle, with the

school principal and the school board

either intimidating her or being

uncooperative.

Tiffany Nickerson, who along with

her boyfriend of a year and a half Jeff

Duperron, have been working to help

her son who a psychologist labelled as

attention deficit hyperactivity disorder

(ADHD) but who Nickerson and

Duperron said only needs rules and

structure focus on school work .

Nickerson stated in an interview

Sept. 13 that her son had trouble in

school for years and when he was in

Grade 4 a psychologist told her the boy

was ADHD.

“I thought it was bogus from the

very get-go because they were trying to

get me to put him on medication since

he was nine years old,” said Nickerson

by phone.

She said once ADHD was mentioned

she had to meet with teachers to discuss

what they called a “positive

behaviour plan” which would address

situations such as the boy suddenly

leaving the classroom.

Duperron, who said he’s very

involved in the boy’s life and cares

about him very much, stated in his

opinion the boy is not ADHD, doesn’t

need medication but does need discipline

and structure.

Nickerson stated he’s now in Grade 9

and spends most of his days walking

the hallways, which drives her nuts.

Duperron stated he and Nickerson

started to hold the boy much more

accountable at home, adding that there

were consequences

for

things like skipping

homework.

After these consequences

were

applied Duperron

stated he saw

changes in the

boy’s behaviour

and attitude.

However,

Nickerson and

Duperron noted

they ran into a

problem with the

principal of Hughenden Public School.

They stated that while it initially

seemed the principal agreed with their

approach at home, that approach

wasn’t being followed at school.

For example, if the boy didn’t follow

through on school responsibilities, the

principal didn’t enforce consequences.

Duperron stated that through the

previous school year, Grade 8, he and

Nickerson told the boy if his school

Duperron stated he

was under the impression

work wasn’t acceptable he would have

to repeat Grade 8. Nickerson stated the

boy’s Grade 8 year did not go very well

and amidst the problems she said they

told the principal that if things didn’t

improve they were committed to

holding the boy back to repeat Grade 8

with the principal apparently agreeing.

Last school year the boy failed all of

his final exams in June.

Nickerson

stated it was

clear they would

have to hold him

back in Grade 8,

but she said the

day before school

started this fall

she was called to

meet with the

Hughenden

Public School

principal and the

Grade 9 teacher

where she was

told her son had

been promoted to Grade 9, which he

would start the next day.

“They threw him into Grade 9,” said

Nickerson.

Duperron stated he was under the

impression it’s the parent’s decision

about holding a student back, but the

principal told them it’s the principal’s

decision.

The ECA Review newspaper

requested an interview with


Hughenden Public School Principal

Ryan Duffet Tues., Sept. 13 but by

Mon., Sept. 19 no response was

received.

The ECA Review newspaper

requested an interview with James

Trodden, assistant superintendent of

schools with Buffalo Trail Public

Schools Tues., Sept. 13 but by Mon.,

Sept. 19 no response was received.

“There’s nothing we can do about it,”

said Nickerson, who added it’s been

suggested to them to move the boy to a

new school or move to another community

as their only options.

Both Nickerson and Duperron stated

that virtually everyone they’ve spoken

to about the situation agreed it should

be the parent’s decision.

Duperron noted that the principal

and school board worked with him

well, but after a certain point the principal

and Buffalo Trail School Board

stated they didn’t want Duperron

involved in this situation anymore

because he was not the boy’s legal

guardian. However, Nickerson stated

she filled out all necessary paperwork

to permit Duperron to be involved with

her son at school and her son wants

Duperron involved in his life.

Both Nickerson and Duperron stated

they spoke with a school board trustee

who seemed sympathetic, but not long

after the trustee stopped responding to

them.

the fence until such permission is

given. This was unfortunate as I had

already built most of the fence and my

supplies were already bought.

One of the council members, Brian

Gus’ behaviour towards me was

uncalled for as he was disrespectful

during my whole presentation and the

meeting was conducted in a very

unprofessional way.

In the second meeting, chaired by

Brian Gus, the council denied me audience

and the right to be heard. He

purported that I had asked to encroach

and he even got denied in the past. The

mayor, Rob McDonald, even averred

no one has ever been issued with an

encroachment permit before.

It is imperative to consider the

bylaws of this ‘City’ regarding denial

of encroachment permit.

Under Part V of the Bylaws an

Encroachment application may be

denied by the Manager and can issue

rejection letter if, in their opinion, the

proposed or existing encroachment

interferes with the safety of the public,

the City or a utility provider, City’s

ability to access, maintain and operate

services on the City property or

interest, a utility provider’s ability to

access, maintain and operate its utility

infrastructure on a City property or

interest, the public’s ability to access

City-owned land intended for public

use, for its use and enjoyment; or is not

in the best interests of the City or the

citizens of Calgary.

In this case, however, none of the

reasons placed under the law has been

mentioned for the said rejection. They

merely stated that no one has ever

been allowed to encroach in the past. I

believe that they acted either in furtherance

of self-interest or

discriminatory sense against my

rights.

Additionally, the by-law requires

that upon denial of an application, The

Management must issue a letter indicating

the reasons for declining the

application. It is obvious none of this

was done.

This denial, in my opinion, is simply

malicious since the town will never

develop the section encroached. It is

also clear that the town does not know

where the town property lines are and

are getting them through the backs of

its residents and as a result of the

uncertainty; they requested for a Real

Property Report (RPR) in order to

ascertain the boundaries given by a

surveyor.

The application has been denied

despite the fact that it is within the

legally acceptable encroachment

parameters of 0.34 m and after payment

of requisite fee, it should have

been accepted. In my opinion, the town

is marred by rapid cases of corruption

and manipulations by a clique of

unethical individuals.

If the management’s final decision

after production of RPR is rejection,

then they should have issued me with a

notice of removal requiring me to

remove the encroachment.

However, the current position is that

they have breached the agreement and

assurance given to me by Patrick

Taylor, in his discharge of official duty,

which had given me the permission to

erect the fence, which I had already

acquired the material and commenced

on the construction.

At the very least, I am faced with

irreparable damage if this decision is

not rescinded. Further, they have also

moved to cut down two mature trees

on my property line under the pretext

that they were on their line. This

damage cannot be compensated

monetarily.

The ‘City’ Planning department,

under the stewardship of these rogue

officials has subjected me to mockery,

humiliation and mental anguish. I suspect

that I am not the only victim of

their harassment and threats. We need

to confront this emboldened clique at

all costs.

I reported the matter to the RCMP in

regards to threats giving to me by ‘city’

employees, who have taken it up. This

is just the beginning of pursuing

OBITUARIES

Passion for playing ball, giving sleigh rides

Kendall LeRoy Bignell was born in

Stettler, Alta. to Chester and Gertie

Bignell on April 7, 1937. He was the

eldest of seven children. At the time

Chester farmed with his brothers in

the area northeast of Stettler.

Kendall began his school years

attending the Bignell School. In 1946

Chester moved his family to the

Buffalo Lake area (SE 8 40 20

W4th) where the current farm

exists today.

Milking cows, feeding pigs and

chickens and farming with

horses was a daily part of

Kendall’s life. He attended the

Scales and Liberal schools in the

area where he completed Grade

nine. His only transportation to

school was a horse from a young

age no matter the weather.

In the following years he helped

Chester with the harvest and began to

work for a local farmer in the area,

Murray Rairdan. For several years he

worked for the Rairdan family which

began a lifelong association and

friendship.

Kendall also worked in Stettler at

Redhead Services, Plunkett & Savage

and planting trees for the county.

Kendall met Shirley Larose who was

a high school friend of his sister Myra

and they were married in 1960. They

lived in the Stettler area raising their

four children, always helping Chester

and maintaining a connection with the

farm.

Kendall had a passion for ball and

playing with the Liberal ball team was

something he always talked about over

the years. Many lifelong friends came

from those days.

Bignell

Kendall always owned a horse or

two and Shorthorn cattle which he was

heard saying many times over the

years “nothing prettier than a roan

herd”.

He began his career at the Stettler

Auction Mart working in the yard and

driving truck where he forged many

friendships with the auction

mart staff and

farmers he hauled for.

After leaving the auction

mart he and his

brother Jerry began a

mobile feed mill business

which took him to more

farmer’s yards.

In 1974 Kendall accomplished

a long time goal

and he and Shirley took

over the farm from

Chester and moved a house and their

family to the farm. Kendall grain

farmed and a dairy barn was built in

1976. They milked cows raised some

pigs and even had a short term venture

in the sheep business.

The dairy cows were dispersed in

the 80’s and grain farming continued

along with an increase in the

Shorthorn cattle herd.

In 1997 a purebred Charolais herd

was started along with his son Lyle

and for 25 years bulls were sold.

Kendall delivered bulls in the spring of

every year. This was a job he loved and

he knew where everyone lived so there

was never a need for a map.

Kendall always had a team of horses

for sleigh rides with the grandkids.

Anyone else who visited especially

during Christmas and New Year was

offered a ride.

G3 is moving Alberta

farmers’ grain to

market faster than ever

Alberta farmer Craig Mills started

delivering grain to G3’s Morinville elevator

as soon as it opened in 2020.

He liked what he saw right away.

“A bright, clean modern facility, nice

and clean and fresh,” he says.

Since then, he says he’s appreciated

that the facility has maintained its

speed and efficiency even as more and

more producers choose to haul their

grain there, getting trucks in and out

quickly.

General Manager Ryan Dechief is

accustomed to the positive reviews.

“Our customers appreciate the speed

of our unloads and the calibre of

people they meet at G3 on the driveway

and in the office,” he says.

“They’re surprised at how quickly

and consistently we ship grain out of

our plant and happy to see that efficiency

reflected in the prices we offer.”

G3 Morinville features the same

loop-track design as the Winnipegbased

company’s other high efficiency

grain elevators across the Prairies.

It allows the facility to bring an

entire 150-car grain train onto the

property and load it in continuous

motion as it moves around the track.

The train delivers the grain to G3

Terminal Vancouver and within a few

days is back at the prairie elevator for

another load.

“Grain movement is all about operational

efficiency. Our model integrates

the most modern and novel engineering

designs at all points in the

supply chain. This reduces operational

costs while increasing the speed at

which we can move grain from farm to

boat,” says Dechief.

That means more delivery opportunities

and more competitive prices for

Canadian farmers marketing their

grain.

It’s part of a system that features

high efficiency top to bottom, says

Dechief.

G3 has more than 600 employees at

facilities across Canada.
