PROVINCIAL / FEDERAL POLITICS
Feb 28, 2019 – Today, in response to allegations made by the NDP government, UCP Lesser Slave Lake candidate Pat Rehn released information proving a local business in his riding is paying around $500,000 annually to cover the cost of the NDP carbon tax.
March 9, 2018 – I will start out by saying that I am not anti-gun . If I had been in the possession of one a couple of years ago I would have blown that bear off my porch. I had been woke up by the dogs about 1:20 in the wee hours, they wanted out. So I groggily got up and opened the door to let them out. Then they froze- all three of them. I pushed old Buster with my knee and told him to go but he wouldn’t. I prompted him again and he stubbornly refused to budge.
Mar 6, 2019 – We have sent the premier to argue the case. Our MPs have argued the case. A convoy recently returned to state our case and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wouldn’t even meet with them. Still, the east and Quebec does not listen.
Does anyone think sending one councillor from High Prairie really matters?
I think there is a better way.
May 1, 2018 – There are so many exciting things these days. Outraged folks will picket a shop because they don’t like a sign in the window.
Meanwhile, I’m wondering where the outrage is over one of our favourite country singers, Shania Twain.
She says she was caught off-guard by an interview question a few days ago. The question was asked if she would have voted for American President Donald Trump.
High Prairie & Big Lakes County
April 24, 2019 – Three agricultural producers promoted Big Lakes County at the world’s largest international food trade show to expand markets.
The trio attended the 24th annual Gulfood Food and Beverage Trade Exhibition, Feb. 17-21 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Agricultural Service Board chair Doug Meneice and producers Garrett Zahacy and Tanner Pollack reported on their trip to the ASB and council April 12.
“We believe we put our county on the map in Dubai,” Meneice says.
May 18, 2018 – Can anything be done about High Prairie’s ‘Bridge Crew?’
The short answer, at least as far as police chit-chatting with the High Prairie Chamber of Commerce recently, is, “Not really. Not unless they are doing something against the law.”
Of course, there might be local loitering bylaws that might kick in. Which mostly means, push the problem from one suffering business down the street to another business and make them suffer a bit.
September 4, 2017 – Special cameras are up and operating at two major High Prairie highway intersections to improve traffic flow. Cameras were installed Aug. 23 on Highway Two at the intersections of Secondary Highway 749 and at 50 Street.
