‘Headed in the right direction’

The weird saga of the Town of Slave Lake vs. Lesser Slave Lake MLA Pat Rehn continued last week. Mayor Tyler Warman referred to it as a “circus,” but sounded optimistic.
Rehn, meanwhile, confining his announcements to social media, had some good news about public housing and an admission of errors in his expense claims last year.

Bad news on Boreal Centre

As reported earlier, the Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation in Lesser Slave Lake is closed to the public for six months, as of Oct. 1. What wasn’t reported earlier is that the province had apparently changed its mind about the closure (and minimal cost-saving), after a furious lobby effort by local municipalities and others.

New man at the top at the Town of Slave Lake

Here’s a question: Why swap Cranbrook B.C. for Slave Lake Alberta? For David Kim, the new Town of Slave Lake Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), the answer was a desire to return to Alberta.
“I feel at home here,” he says.
That’s despite Slave Lake being further from the family home base in Calgary than Cranbrook is. Not to mention being quite different than Cowtown.
