When police located him in Evansburg around 5:15 p.m. Thursday, an attempt to stop the vehicle he was driving was unsuccessful, leading to a chase involving RCMP members from Evansburg, Stony Plain, Spruce Grove, Edson, and Drayton Valley.The man led police back and forth multiple times on Highway 16 between Evansburg and Entwistle, RCMP said.The driver managed to avoid multiple spike belts deployed by RCMP but police successfully deflated the fleeing vehicle’s tires near Nojack as it was travelling east.The vehicle rolled eastbound for a time before it came to a stop on Highway 16 near Highway 22.At that point gunfire was exchanged, killing the driver, police said. He was the lone occupant of the vehicle.Investigators were still at the scene Friday, although no further details of Thursday’s events have been released.The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team, the province’s independent police watchdog that investigates police-related shootings and deaths, has also been called in to investigate.The El-Dib family expressed their appreciation to the Calgary Police Service and the community.“We just know that we’re going to be at peace and we’re going to move on from this,” Racha El-Dib said.A GoFundMe campaign created in Nadia’s name has raised $34,00o in two days, exceeding the $30,000 goal.

Grieving mother joins residents asking for improvements to highway west of Edmonton - Globalnews.ca

Edmonton.If you travel down Whitemud Drive west out of Edmonton, it turns into Hwy. 628, intersecting with Highway 60 and connecting the city to Spruce Grove and Stony Plain.But Kirsten doesn’t travel down that road anymore, at least since since her son died on it in July.“It was the most horrific moment of my entire life,” she said, recalling how RCMP officers came to her door on a sunny July evening to tell her about her son’s death.Luke MacNeil was the youngest of three siblings, a football player who was going to school to become a plumber.“He was amazing. He was so loved. And he was funny and smart and caring and protective.”Story continues belowLuke was driving from Edmonton to his mom’s home outside Spruce Grove when his SUV suddenly left the road and rolled, hitting a fence, a horse and a tree. The impact broke his neck and back, causing internal bleeding and he died.“He had his whole life ahead of him. There were 800 people at his funeral. That’s how many lives he touched,” Kirsten said.“I’m absolutely shattered. My life just shattered. I’m gutted.”She believes the dust, soft shoulders and narrowness on Hwy. 628 contributed to Luke’s death.“I want to see that road paved, widened, safe. It’s a major commuting secondary road,” she said. “If I can prevent one family from going throug...

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...
