Convoy evokes Canadian pride in North Bay - Vermilion Standard

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

It's about getting back the political process."The United We Roll Convoy for Canada, a caravan of transports, work vehicles and personal automobiles, left Red Deer, Alta., last Thursday bound for Ottawa and a protest on Parliament Hill Tuesday."The media and the government have divided the provinces," Caron says. "We want to fight for our freedoms and our rights. We want fair government.""We are watching Justin Trudeau slowly strip away every right we had," Sarah Zaldinger, of Timmins, said as about two dozen supporters waited for the convoy to arrive, sharing updates on when the parade would roll into town."He is stripping the future of my children and their children and their children," Zaldinger said. "They are being set up for failure. Their rights, their future, will all be destroyed if we don't stand up now."Although she was not part of the convoy to North Bay, Zaldinger was going to join it Tuesday morning for the rally in Ottawa as part of her own objective of "direct democracy."And direct democracy is possible, she said.Zaldinger pointed to a recent Amber Alert sent to cellphone users across the province when a little girl was reported missing, saying the same system could be used to make sure everyone gets a voice."We could all be given a choice. It could be done," she said. "But it is not being done.""We are going to take our country back," Glen Carritt, the lead organizer of the convoy, told the crowd of locals and convoy participants after the convoy stopped for a short rally. About 100 vehicles, from big rigs to small cars, pull into the Motion Canada parking lot on Gormanville Road, Monday. The convoy was to stop in Arnprior Monday night before heading to Parlliament Hill in Ottawa Tuesday.PJ Wilson/The Nugget Air horns blasted, flags and placards waved as the convoy pulled into the parking lot. Many of the messages were pro-pipeli...

Feature film shoots scenes at Blackjacks Roadhouse - Leduc Representative

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Link to the Past Productions, features several cast and crew members from Alberta. Including Edmonton-based director Gilbert Allen and several actors from Edmonton, Calgary and Red Deer.No Apology follows five friends who reunite at a funeral of one of their sisters who has recently died from suicide. As the film progresses the woman's death starts to become more suspicious and one of the five friends begins to look guilty of murder.The production has used a variety of places in Leduc County over the month of February to bring the film to life."We've shot it pretty much all in the Royal Oaks neighbourhood, we used a local park for green space, we used some exteriors in Beaumont. Blackjacks was the closest thing to a casino we could find," Allen said.Blackjack's Roadhouse was chosen for its similarity in look to a small casino. Allen said owner Clarence Shields was incredibly accommodating."We needed something that looked like one of the smaller Las Vegas casinos and so we just found a gaming room that could pass for a Las Vegas casino and it was Blackjacks. Clarence is a big supporter of the arts community, he knew what we were trying to do and he just jumped in with both feet and said I'll make it happen."The film is currently in post-production and will likely be released in a few months' time.lberg@postmedia.com Let's block ads!

Wedding dress from 1965 - Medicine Hat News

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

By Submitted Article on March 26, 2019. Barbara Hughson and Dave Clarke grew up near Milk River in Masinasin and near Red Deer in Castor respectively, but they met as young school teachers in Carstairs in 1964. They got engaged and were married at Southminster United Church in Lethbridge on Aug. 21, 1965. Barb and Dave didn’t consider it important to have an elaborate wedding, as they were busy. Dave was moving his parents’ house and Barb was going to summer school. But Barb was the youngest in her family and the only girl, and her parents were not to be denied, “No, we’re going to have a wedding.” Barb told them, “I guess if you want a wedding, we’ll talk by phone, [and] you’ll have to make all of the arrangements.” And they did, for between 100-125 guests. Barb’s sister-in-law, Joan Hughson, was an extremely good seamstress and made Barb her “going away” outfit. The wedding ceremony was at Southminster United Church, the reception was at the El Rancho, and an open house and dance were held for the couple near Milk River at the...
