HERCHUK - Ret'd RCMP Staff Sgt. Alex (Al) - Yorkton This Week Thursday, January 12, 2017
Yorkton Regional Health Centre. He was 85 years of age. On September 26, 1931, the last of five children was born to Michael and Lena (nee Wudwud) Herchuk at Vermilion, AB. His family then moved to Vegreville where he was raised and attended school. Alex was a generous soul from a very young age and upon him and his brother discovering a bag of stolen money, proceeded to hand the bills out to any and all people passing by. As a youngster with the dream of joining the RCMP, he would dangle from a "chin-up bar" before bed to ensure he met the height requirement. Following graduation from high school and playing competitive hockey throughout his employment years, Alex attended college for two years, worked as a carpenter in Vegreville and was later employed as a Lineman with Alberta Utilities. He worked in the coal mines in Crowsnest Pass, AB and later in a Yukon gold mine. Not knowing then what we know now, his years of carpentry work with raw asbestos slowly enveloped his system with asbestos lung cancer claiming his life. Always a sports-minded individual and excelling in the game of hockey, he was faced with a career decision in 1955. He left the farm-club of the Detroit Red Wings (six team NHL) when his opportunity to "help people" presented. Alex signed up for what was at the time nine months of training with the Royal Canadian Mounted P...

"This is about more than pipelines," Caron says. "This is about government. This is about all the provinces having different issues. 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 ...
