Success for first annual Tree of Remembrance - Vermilion Standard

Thursday, January 12, 2017

Though a rewarding experience, Shimko said it took a lot more work than anticipated to pull of the ceremony, and added it wouldn’t have been possible without the generous donation from a family in Lloydminster, as they donated the tree. The installation of the tree came from the support of Lloyd's Limb Service Inc. “We found some people in Lloyd that had to get rid of a tree because it was encroaching on their home, and they were willing to donate it to us. Then we had Derwin Selte drill the hole and help us set it up. Then we decorated it.” Following the outdoor service, attendees were invited into the funeral chapel for refreshments. “It was very well received and we are happy with how it turned out. For some people, it is a sign a remembrance for their loved one, whether it was 10 or 30 years ago. We had really good feedback from it, people were pleased about it, and now we are going to make it an annual thing.” thermiston@postmedia.com @StandardTay  @VStandard1909 Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Khan set to join PC race - St. Albert Gazette

Friday, November 4, 2016

MLA Donna Kennedy-Glans, Calgary lawyer Byron Nelson, MLA Sandra Jansen and MLA Richard Starke. So far, four of the announced candidates are from the Calgary region. Starke is from the Lloydminster-Vermilion region. Khan will be the first candidate from the capital region. Former St. Albert mayor and current PC party member Richard Plain thinks any candidate out of the capital region may have an advantage in the race. “I just think that there is a natural inclination to say what part of the province do they come from, not only what their background is. It is a longstanding rivalry between the south and north, which is the Edmonton region and the Calgary region,” Plain said. So far, a major issue has been the question of whether to unite the right wing parties in Alberta. Jason Kenney was the first to enter the race and proposed to merge the Wildrose and Progressive Conservative parties as one new party. No other candidate has shown support for uniting with the Wildrose. The final decision won't be made until March, when the party will host a delegated convention. This selection process hasn't been used by the PCs to elect a leader since 1985 and is rare in Canadian politics. The one-member, one-vote process has been criticized for allowing “two-minute Tories” to dictate the outcome of the leadership race. Candidates were able to temporarily drum up support by selling memberships and win without the support of the party rank and file. Party members from each of the 87 constituencies will select 15 delegates to choose the next leader. Five of the delegate spots from each constituency are set aside for local party officials. A total of 265 delegate spots are reserved for youth between the ages of 16 and 26. All candidates will compete until March 18, 2017 when the selected delegates will cast their votes for the party leader. Khan was attending the Jim Prentice funeral Friday and could not be reached for comment by press time. Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Walking Through Grief Society benefits from community barbecue - Vermilion Standard

Friday, October 28, 2016

Walking Through Grief offers a safe, supportive, and loving environment for individuals to reconcile with life’s losses. The service is offered in Vermilion, Kitscoty, Lloydminster, Wainwright, and other surrounding communities. The barbecue also acted as an open door to the employees of Lakeland Funeral Home, to eliminate the reminders of losses, and say thank you to the community. “This is us giving back and saying thank you to the community as a whole. It is a great thing for us to let the community know we are thankful for their support of our business, and the community spirit that they give out. This is a great gathering place for everyone,” Anderson said. The barbecue welcomed residents, who had the opportunity to participate in a prize table, live music from local artists Sharlie Donily, Phillip Willis, and Ray Blackmore. An additional fundraising effort came from Nathan James, co-owner of Icicle Bicycle, who donated 50 cents per frozen treat sold. The other reason for the barbecue is allowing the community to see the employees of Lakeland Funeral Home is a different light, as they are around at someone’s most difficult time. “Usually, when people are here, families are going through a difficult time, and it's hard for them to see us sometimes; because it reminds them of their loss. It is a small town, we run into each other at the grocery store or the post office, so it is nice for them to see us in this manner,” she said. Anderson brought the idea for the barbecue from her previous employment in Lethbridge, Alta., and highlighted how great it was to see families they had helped through their grieving process. “To see them in a different light, where we can be a little bit more relaxed with them, and interact with them in a different mannerism was really nice. When I moved here I wa...

Kenney to launch Alberta campaign Wednesday - Calgary Sun

Thursday, August 18, 2016

Jansen is among a handful of MLAs who are contemplating running for the leadership, with the list also including McIver and Vermilion-Lloydminster MLA Richard Starke, as well as Edmonton city councillor Michael Oshry. Kenney paid tribute to both McIver and Wildrose Leader Brian Jean, and said he would take Jean at his word on his comments that Wildrose would be interested in unity if there was a "willing dance partner." Jean had recently shelved any notion of uniting the parties and said he would instead work to expand Wildrose's appeal, possibly under a new name. Kenney pointed to the federal Conservative party as his model, noting that it was the result of a merger between the PCs and the Canadian Alliance, the successor of the Reform party. He said Alberta's "free-enterprise voters," while divided provincially, are joined together in supporting the federal Conservatives. Among the crowd were current Conservative MPs Michelle Rempel, Ron Liepert, Pat Kelly, Tom Kmiec, John Barlow and Deepak Obhrai, as well as former MPs Joan Crockatt, Devinder Shory, Diane Ablonczy and Rob Anders. Interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose, another Alberta MP, issued a statement wishing Kenney "nothing but the best in the days ahead" and encouraging conservatives "to work together to forge a united path to victory." After his announcement, Kenney was heading to Grande Prairie, where he was to make a speech Wednesday night. He will hold a press conference in Edmonton on Thursday. -- with files from Emma Graney, Postmedia jwood@postmedia.com Let's block ads! (Why?)...

A reflective Father Bob Haggarty looks back on his time in Lillooet - Bridge River Lillooet News

Thursday, April 12, 2018

I said to the seniors, ‘If you can’t get along with the Catholics, you’re free to leave!’” It should be noted the seniors have not gone anywhere. Originally from Alberta, Father Bob was ordained in 1971 as a priest in the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI). The Order was founded in 1816 and has had a presence in British Columbia since 1858. The apostolic Oblates focused on outreach to remote and/or wilderness areas, which B.C. was at the time of the Gold Rush. “The Oblates were there, right at the beginning of the colonization of B.C.,” adds Father Bob, who says those early priests were so young that they were described as altar boys. He can quote the early history of the Oblates in B.C. chapter and verse, but is also fascinated by Canadian military history. He says that’s related to one of his mother’s brothers, who went overseas with the RCAF during the Second World War and was killed in action. “My mother had all these letters and pictures but had no time to organize them. But I thought, ‘If we don’t value his contributions, who’s going to?’ He sacrificed his life for this country, so I felt I owed him that and so I took every photo and every scrap of paper and put them in order.” After he began living here, Father Bob became intrigued by the history of local veterans, particularly the “Boys of Lillooet” whose names are inscribed on the cenotaph on the lawn outside the District Office. “I said to myself, ‘Who are you? Who are you?’” He then spent years researching their lives and eventually produced two volumes (World War One and World War Two) of priceless biographical material - old black and white and sepia photos, precious personal letters written from the front lines, military records and his own conversations with their siblings and other family members - that preserves the memory of the “Boys of Lillooet” for posterity. “Those fellows grew up here, lived within a five or 10-mile radius of downtown Lillooet and they never came back,” he says softly. “I thought they should be remembered and we should be proud of them.” Father Bob believes “history is made up of local people. It’s more than what Prince Charles has done. It’s people who are walking down the street. There’s history there, too.” He continues, “And it’s a good story if you go back and find out what happened. I remember hearing an interview with Mark Forsythe on the CBC and he was coming to Lytton for a public forum on the Gold Rush. It was also about the opening up of the Lillooet area and it was an eye-opener, too. I believe in history and I like to know history. I think the history of Lillooet makes you appreciate the place where you live. And for visitors, so much of B.C.’s history took place within a half mile of here.” He says, “Sometimes I’ll go down to Seton Lake and just sit there and I’ll ask people who are visiting for the day if they know where they are and what happened here. It makes it more interesting for them if they know some of the local history.” Father Bob acknowledges he’s “dealing with the reality of being a senior” and some health challenges involving his eyesight, but hopes to continue living here. “Why would I want to leave Lillooet?” he asks. “The environment here...

Conservation group says Alberta grizzly, Bear 148, shot dead in BC - CTV News

Thursday, April 12, 2018

PM EDT EDMONTON -- Conservationists are mourning the death of a female grizzly bear that had been moved from a popular area west of Calgary this summer to a remote park in northwest Alberta. Stephen Legault of the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative said Bear 148 was shot by a hunter on Sunday after wandering into British Columbia from its new home. Legault said the bear was just becoming old enough to have cubs. "What is really sad is that we have lost the potential that this grizzly bear represented for the further recovery of the threatened species in Alberta," he said Wednesday. He noted that grizzly bears are often killed after being struck on highways and by trains. "The fact that this bear was killed by a hunter illustrates the fact that there are many threats to these animals." The B.C. government plans to ban the killing of grizzly bears for trophy, but not until after this hunting season. Parks Canada and the Alberta government later confirmed the death of Bear 148. "This outcome underlines the need for more collaboration across jurisdictions to co-ordinate wildlife and people management at a landscape level," Parks Canada said in an email. Bear 148 was moved in July from its range near Banff and Canmore, Alta., to Kakwa Wildland Park. The bear never hurt anyone but had gotten too close to people dozens of times since it was born in the Banff National Park a...
