Weeks before he killed his wife, they were a happy couple, Sukhchain Brar testified here Wednesday during his first degree murder trial.

About a dozen photos were entered as exhibits in the trial Wednesday, showing the couple during a recent trip to India. They were photographed with relatives at historic sites in India and outside Brar home in India.

can see from the pictures how happy she was, Brar said through a Punjabi interpreter.

Brar, 52, already admitted hitting his wife with a hammer and deliberately setting fire to the transport truck as the couple headed toward Sarnia on Highway 402. on Jan. 31, 2016.

They were married in 1999 in India in an arrangement between their families. Brar said, calling testimony from a previous witness that he been paid to marry her a lie. There was no reason to get paid, Brar said, as his family was well off and even paid for the banquet hall at the couple wedding.

The couple had three children and enjoyed family life, but after the birth of their third child,

his wife became depressed. A medical problem had been found, and Brar testified his wife uterus was removed, causing hormonal complications.

She become angry and then be laughing, testified Brar, describing how a doctor advised him to treat her like a child.

Brar testimony is scheduled to continue Thursday in Superior Court. The Crown finished presenting its evidence Monday.

Brar was the last of three witnesses expected to be called by defence lawyer Brennan Smart. The first two were the couple teenage son and a man who admitted having a sexual affair with the victim.

During his testimony Wednesday, the teenage son said fuel containers at the family home were not taken on transport truck trips. The son testified he had used fuel from a red plastic container in the gas powered lawnmower at the family home.

The lawn mower didn work, and his father told him the fuel was diesel, the son testified.

Melted red plastic fuel containers found in the debris along with the body of Gurpreet Brar tested positive for the presence of diesel and gasoline. There were no gas powered appliances in the diesel powered truck in which the couple was travelling.

Both were licensed truck drivers and had driven as a team on previous long hauls. They were heading for Arkansas on Jan. 31.

The son also testified he had seen his mother grab his father neck during an argument about his father brother living in their Brampton home.

Earlier Wednesday, Harjinder Brar, a 39 year old man from the same village in India as Sukhchain Brar, testified he had a sexual relationship with Gurpreet. He identified a photo of a tattoo as being one Gurpreet had on her upper chest. In a red heart was her first initial and the first initial of the nickname she called him.

Sukhchain Brar attempted to plead guilty to manslaughter as the trial opened, but the Crown rejected his plea to the lesser offence.

timberland split rock Couple Seeking to Adopt Native American Child Balks at Indian Child Welfare Law

timberland sandals for men Couple Seeking to Adopt Native American Child Balks at Indian Child Welfare Law

That why Jason and Danielle Clifford signed up. The couple said they heard Hennepin County social services call for help at their church, in which the agency said it needed more foster families urgently.

The Cliffords said they fell in the love with the little girl who came to live with them a year and a half ago, whom KSTP is identifying as “P” at their request. The foster care system privacy policies protect the identities of children in the system.

The Cliffords said the county had given them reason to believe their adoption of the child would be approved. But 11 months ago, the White Earth Ojibwe tribe intervened, invoking the spirit of the ICWA that attempts to prevent Native American children from being separated from family or extended family.

The Cliffords said they couldn understand why, because the county had said the child is not eligible for membership in any Indian tribe and the Indian Child Welfare Act doesn apply.

The Cliffords said the White Earth Tribe wanted the maternal grandmother to adopt.

A county lawyer told a family court judge that P biological grandmother, Robyn Bradshaw, didn qualify as a foster parent because of her criminal history. But Bradshaw lawyer Ron Walters said his client record had been expunged. Bradshaw would not speak on camera, but Walters sent this statement:

“Ms. Bradshaw appreciates the difficult situation the foster parents are facing in this matter. Ms. Bradshaw also believes, however, that her granddaughter long term best interests are best served by a permanent placement that preserves her connection to her family and her tribe.”

P is Native American and African American. “We were told she been neglected severely. We were told she had witnessed a lot of violence,” Danielle Clifford said.

Documents show Hennepin County terminated the rights of the child biological parents because of criminal incarcerations and her mother drug addiction. The Cliffords said the county told them they would be the best parents for the little girl, and that they be able to adopt her.

Pictures of the young child are all over the Cliffords home. Jason Clifford said his foster daughter helped him put up Christmas lights inside the house. The third stocking on their fireplace represents the answer to the prayer for the gift they always wanted.

They remember when they first met P.

She was “sweet, obviously smart, who has been through a lot and needs someone to give her consistency and love her,” Danielle Clifford said.

The Cliffords said that in the last year and a half, P went from a shy, disconnected little girl to a happy, social child who has lots of friends, is exceeding her reading level, is a Girl Scout and in ballet class.

“We were on the fast track to adopt her,” the Cliffords said. Now, they are hoping a court decides in their favor.

The Cliffords said the Guardian Ad Litem, P official advocate in court, believes that P should stay with the Cliffords and have contact with her biological family.

timberland safety boots sale couple finish Appalachian Trail

LANCASTER Four million steps, a mountain rescue for a broken hip, breast cancer and a broken fibula later, Ernie and Lois Hess have realized their dream to hike the famed Appalachian Trail by the time they were 75.

The 17 year itch began inconspicuously enough in the summer of 1965 when the pair from West Lampeter Township honeymooned at Camp Hebron, a church camp north of Harrisburg.

“We were fascinated by how long this trail was,” recalls Ernie, a retired teacher, guidance counselor and administrator from Lancaster Mennonite School. Then there was the allure of getting away and escaping into wilderness.

A seed was planted, and they began dreaming of hiking more of the nearly 2,190 mile trail.

But the seed was slow to germinate. It was not until 2001 and a church conference in Tennessee that they began taking hiking forays of three to 18 days on sections of the trail.

They’d do a lot of the hikes during summers when Ernie was off and Lois could take vacations from her job as a caregiver for seniors.

The routine usually involved parking their car at a destination trailhead, then having a local resident shuttle them to a starting trailhead. Progressing from south to north, they’d begin each hiking season where the last summer’s ended.

The couple were not through hikers on the trail, but they’d stay in trail shelters and learn trail gossip and meet others immersed in the unique culture of the trail.

Ernie’s trail name was Morning Song, a sign of appreciation for each new day dawning with good health. Lois chose Towhee, in recognition of the bird’s almost daily call from the forest around them.

They experienced the “trail magic” that cloaks the experience. They found coolers of cold drinks beside the path left by anonymous “trail angels.” Strangers invited them to stay in their homes.

Twice they nearly stepped on rattlesnakes and a copperhead. One night in Vermont a bear shuffled under a picnic table just outside the shelter where they slept.

Family got involved in the slowly unfolding journey. Their daughter, Audrey Hess, son in law and their two children, only 2 and 3 years old, would journey from their Gettysburg home to hike sections of the trail and camp with them in Virginia and Pennsylvania. They did this over 10 seasons.

Like all long quests, there were tribulations.

Lois was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005. In 2011, Ernie suffered vertebral compression fractures from a fall not on the trail which ended the hiking season.

And age was catching up. In 2013, they skipped north to tackle the rugged White Mountains of New Hampshire. At noon one day, while hiking up Mount Hayes, the last of the peaks in the Presidential Range, Ernie slipped on a rock and landed hard on his hip. He couldn’t even roll over without excruciating pain.

Their dangerous predicament set into motion a large scale rescue effort in the valley below. It took 20 people to reach Ernie and carry him off the mountain. He was hospitalized for eight days with a severely fractured hip.

“Strangers turned angels appeared to serve us in our calamity,” Ernie says.

Back home, some friends suggested the time had come to end the quixotic journey and avoid further injuries. But when Ernie’s doctors and therapists urged him to remain active, you can guess the result.

The next summer, in 2015, with about 500 miles still to experience, the couple was back on the trail, this time to hike the daunting 100 Mile Wilderness in Maine. But extreme heat forced them to end the attempt early.

The following summer they were back, finished the section and summited Mount Katahdin, the celebrated northern end of the trail.

They then returned to Mount Hayes where Ernie was felled in 2013. They completed that, but near the top of Mahoosuc Arm, Lois stepped into a leaf covered hole and snapped her fibula. She wrapped it up and walked more than 5 miles out the next day on her own.

The beginning of 2017 the year they both would turn 75 found them with 322 miles remaining. They redoubled their efforts.

They knocked out Maine and much of Vermont in June and August. Lois turned 75 on June 6, Ernie later in the year.

With just two days of hiking left, they were surprised by their daughter and son, Phil Hess, who had traveled from his home in Montana. Together, the family hiked and camped together for the final two days, on Sept. 16 crossing the Connecticut River, ascending a hill and hugging a huge tree, known as the Hiker’s Elm, on the green on the edge of Dartmouth College.

Both Lois and Ernie cried tears of joy.

Hiking the trail had taken 48 different hiking trips over 17 years.

Both consider the experience a gift.

“There was something almost sacred about the beauty and serenity of an entire natural setting,” Ernie says.

timberland suede boots Couple Chock and Bates hunting second national title

There have been silver and bronze medals aplenty for Madison Chock and Evan Bates in the past few years. National Figure Skating Championships in San Jose, California (Jan 3 7).

“I think [winning the national title in this Olympic year] would be a huge deal for us,” Bates said in a media teleconference. “It’s something that we’ve been chasing for a few years now since we won in 2015. I would be lying if I didn’t say there had been some trying moments over the last few seasons.”

After winning the national ice dance title in 2015, they went on to capture silver at the subsequent Four Continents Championships and world championships. The next season, they earned a silver at the Grand Prix Final and silver at 2016 nationals. Then, silver at Four Continents and bronze at 2016 Worlds to close out that season.

In the pre Olympic season, grabbed four straight silver medals (Nebelhorn Trophy, Nepela Memorial, Skate Canada, and Rostelecom Cup) before qualifying for the Grand Prix Final and finishing sixth in that field. Then, another silver at the 2017 nationals. They earned a bronze at Four Continents held in 2017 inside the PyeongChang Olympic venue but finished seventh at the world championships.

Through this fall, they picked up two more silvers on the Grand Prix circuit (Cup of China and Internationaux de France). Then, they placed fifth at the Grand Prix Final.

“If everything had been going swimmingly over the past few seasons, with gold medals galore, I think, through it all, the difficult times created a really beautiful relationship that we now share. Who knows? Maybe it would’ve never happened if everything was going great,” Bates added.

They revealed they started dating about a year ago, admitting it after some ribbing from the reporters.

“Are you asking us if we’re dating?” Chock laughed.

“Are you following us on Instagram?” Bates joked, before confirming they’re together off the ice. According to the ice dance couple, it’s had a positive effect on their on ice relationship, too.

“I’ve always had great chemistry with [Bates],” Chock said. “We’ve always gotten along so well. Skating together is something that we love doing, and we love doing it together. Now, we’re together on and off the ice and it makes it even more powerful. It feels completely genuine and real. It makes training so much more fun and it brings us closer together every day. We’re working together, working towards the same things. When you’re doing that with someone that you love, it really is so much more meaningful.”

timberlands kids couple charged with abuse for starving

say that a husband and wife are in custody after allegedly chaining their children to beds in filthy conditions.

One of the children, a 17 year old girl, escaped from the house in Perris, Calif. on Sunday and dialed 911 on a cellphone she grabbed from the home, according to Perris police. When investigating officers arrived, the girl looked much younger because of her level of emaciation, police said.

Officers went inside the house and found “several children shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks in dark and foul smelling surroundings,” a police the statement said. The youngest was 2 years old.

David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, were charged Sunday with torture and child endangerment, the Sheriff’s Department said.

The parents were being held in jail in lieu of $9 million bail on child abuse charges.

The six children including the 17 year old who escaped are being treated at Riverside University Health System Medical Center in Moreno Valley.

State Department of Education records show the family home has the same address as Sandcastle Day School, where David Turpin is listed as principal. In the 2016 17 school year it had an enrollment of six with one student in each of the fifth, sixth, eighth, ninth, 10th and 12th grades.

Neighbors said they were stunned by the arrests. Andrew Santillan, who lives around the corner, heard about the case from a friend.

had no idea this was going on, he told the Press Enterprise of Riverside. didn know there were kids in the house. neighbors described the family as intensely private.

A few years ago, Robert Perkins said he and his mother saw a few family members constructing a Nativity scene in the Turpins front yard. Perkins said he complimented them on it.

didn say a word, he said.

The Turpins filed for bankruptcy in 2011, stating in court documents they owed between $100,000 and $500,000, The New York Times reported. At that time, Turpin worked as an engineer at Northrop Grumman and earned $140,000 annually and his wife was a homemaker, records showed.

Their bankruptcy lawyer, Ivan Trahan, told the Times he never met the children but the couple about them highly. remember them as a very nice couple, Trahan said, adding that Louise Turpin told him the family loved Disneyland and visited often.

timberland earthkeepers chukka Couple charged after 13 children held captive inside California home

(CBS News) married couple near Los Angeles is accused ofholding their 13 children captive in their homeand are facing charges of torture and child endangerment. Police say they were tipped off by a teenage daughter after she escaped from her parents, David and Louise Turpin, who are in jail being held on $9 million bail each.

Their children range in age from two to 29 and officials say some of them were found chained to their beds. The parents of the male suspect have expressed shock at the news and reportedly said the family was deeply religious and the parents felt called by God to have so many children.

Perris is a community of about 75,000 people roughly 60 miles southeast of Los Angeles, reports CBS News David Begnaud. The houses are well kept and neighbors tell us they look out for each other which is why for them, what alleged to have happened behind the walls of one of the houses there is all the more shocking.

can believe this. I can believe this. It so sad, said neighbor Jennifer Luna.

People living near the home of the Turpin say they had no idea what was allegedly happening behind closed doors. Many were even unaware the couple had 13 children living there seven of them adults over the age of 18.

older kids, I thought they were, like, 12, because they looked so malnourished, so pale, Kimberly Milligan said. Police say they initially thought all 13 were minors, but were shocked to discover seven of them were adults, with the oldest being 29. The six minors were admitted to Riverside University Hospital and the adults are being treated at Corona Regional Medical Center.

all in very stable condition and they all doing very well considering the magnitude of what been described, said Mark Uffer, CEO of Corona Regional Medical Center.

The children were homeschooled with the father listed in state records as the principal of Sandcastle Day School,

located at the home address.

just crazy to think something like that could happen, next door, Robert Gomez, Jr.

Gomez has been a neighbor of the Turpin for three years. From his perspective, the Turpin home was unkempt but quiet.

never knew that there were any kids living in that house. Especially not 13, he said.

The Turpins renewed their wedding vows at least three times in recent years at the Elvis Chapel in Las Vegas. The last time was in October 2015 and all 13 children attended that ceremony. The chapel Elvis impersonator, Kent Ripley, remembers the family and told CBS News the parents genuinely appeared to care for the family wellbeing.

way the kids looked physically? Thin, but not excessively thin. I thought they were very active as a family didn think that they didn eat or there was punishment or anything like that, Ripley said. were just well behaved. They smiled a lot. hard to believe that the people that I performed for and entertained and sat and talked before and after entertaining them that this could happen.

timberland sandals mens Couple adds Faraday cage to reduce electromagnetic fields

timberland chocorua trail Couple adds Faraday cage to reduce electromagnetic fields

When patients leave family physician Rohini Kanniganti’s office in Boulder, they receive a high five. The invisible fields occur naturally as the result of the Earth’s magnetic pull, and are created in abundance from electric devices and pathways. But Michael Dubson, a senior instructor in the CU physics department says, “(Low frequency electromagnetic radiation) is harmless unless the intensity is so high that you begin to start heating. But there’s no chance that kind of radiation can cause cancer. There’s no evidence of that.”Cancer wasn’t Kanniganti and Plinke’s concern, though.”For us it was just a quality of sleep issue,” says Plinke, an environmental engineer. “I didn’t want to inundate our sleep with a lot of electromagnetic fields because it would just energize the brain. At least that made sense to me.”The Faraday cage was discovered by 19th century Michael Faraday. A Faraday cage essentially blocks external electrical fields from an enclosed space. It’s the same principle that keeps passengers safe from lightning strikes when they are in an automobile. The wire mesh was laid in the cement like flooring material, too. Most of the house is a cell phone dead zone. It’s not a bad thing, Plinke discovered, at least according to friends with chatty children.”A lot of parents have said, ‘Just for that purpose alone, it’s worth doing this,'” Plinke says. “‘If my daughter wasn’t locking herself in her room and talking to her friends forever (on a cell phone), I would pay any money.’ I just had to laugh.”Visitors to the home a warm, inviting dwelling with rounded walls, painted with earth tones and bathed in light have called it a quiet space, Plinke says. It’s not without noise the couple’s two children, Sitha, 6, and Roan, 4, often fill the home with laughter and loud noises children make. A plaque bearing the words “Ahimsa Platz” adorns the entryway. “Whenever I come back and sleep here, I wake up in the morning and think, ‘That was a good night’s sleep.'”But I’m a scientist, too. It’s anecdotal evidence. Who knows what is real and what is not real? It’s real to me anyway.”Kanniganti, too, says it’s difficult to test how vastly reduced electromagnetic fields in their home may or may not affect the family. At some point, though,
timberland sandals mens Couple adds Faraday cage to reduce electromagnetic fields
it’s not about empirical evidence; it’s about enjoying the experiment.”You have to take an evidence based approach, but even in the lack of evidence, you go for the quality of life,” she says. Archived commentsBut wait, there’s more!FCC regulations prohibit interference with radio signals.6/5/2009 6:52:15 AMOooh, Nice to have enough money to spend on Voodoo science. Who knows what is real and what is not real? It’s real to me anyway.”6/2/2009 9:39:47 AMIt’s not Voodoo science. Just because you can’t see, smell, or hear it, doesn’t mean that it’s not capable of causing harm. 100 years ago, no one understood the harmful effects of radon gas but now we mitigate our homes against it regularly. When you sleep, your body produces melatonin, a hormone that your body uses to fight cancer. If you are regularly exposed to a high EMF (electro magnetic field) while asleep, your body will produce diminished amounts of melatonin and you are more susceptible to cancer as a result. This is particularly true for children. I believe that lowering EMF in the home will become more and more common in the future. Personally, I don’t believe that our bodies were designed to be exposed to high levels of EMF for long periods of time. While life without electricity would be next to impossible, there are steps that people can take to lower their home EMF if they are educated. The big power companies do not want people to know about this because it would cause them to have to spend millions of dollars moving power lines away from peoples’ homes. Let’s see what the science journals say in a few more years. In the meantime, I am happy that I have already taken steps to lower my home’s EMF as much as possible.6/2/2009 11:00:39 AMNo shielding for neutrons, cosmic rays, gravity pulses? I can’t believe this man is willing to live in such a death trap.6/2/2009 11:07:57 AM Thanks for the classic “But 100 years we did not know.”What we do know today, is that life expectancy is higher than ever. Except in third world places which have fewer cell phones, m’wave ovens etc. I was under the impression that EMFs attenuate at the square or cube of the distance from the source, so basically any EMF source more than a few feet away has to be high tension line powerful to have any effect. A nightly trip to the circuit breaker box to flip off the switch to their bedroom would do that far more effectively than a Faraday cage, assuming their heads aren’t adjacent to a wall of another room that has live wiring on another circuit. (I suspect the bulk of the relaxation effect they’re feeling is a result of the great sound and vibration insulation they now have, with double drywall everywhere, but I’m well known as a skeptical crank.) It’s interesting, and perhaps telling, that the only paragraph that describes electromagnetic /radiation/, rather than electromagnetic fields,
timberland sandals mens Couple adds Faraday cage to reduce electromagnetic fields
is the one that quotes the CU physics instructor. The two phrases describe the identical physical thing.

During summer’s dog days, some Williamsburg police officers are patrolling armed with a special weapon: 7 Eleven coupons.

The department’s administrative secretary Deby Middlebrook makes sure officers don’t leave the office without the Slurpee coupons and coolers full of water bottles. Both tools can be used to keep officers and community members hydrated during the particularly hot days the Historic Triangle typically experiences in July.

“You can kind of gauge if someone looks a little dehydrated, they’re sweating profusely or they’re a little out of breath. And as simple as offering them water they’re shocked that we’re carrying around water,” Williamsburg Police Officer John Heilman said. “I’ll try to hit up local neighborhoods and apartment complexes I know have a lot of children, because a lot of the children, they will play through dehydration.”

Public bus stops also make for a good place to pass out water, police Maj. Don Janderup said.

“Picture, all throughout the city, some of these bus stops where you sit and the sun is just beating down on you and you’re waiting for this bus, and then officers come up, ‘Hey, do you need a water or something like that?'” Janderup said. “We’ve had a lot of good responses on that.”

Historic Triangle temperatures risen higher than 95 degrees on eight of the past 14 days, according to The Weather Channel. That heat can take a toll on city and county employees required to work outside.

Preparing for the heat

Although the departments handle the threat of overheating with unique strategies, one common necessity they cited for working outside is hydration.

Jim Hill, the solid waste superintendent of the Jolly Pond Convenience Center, said he encourages staff to stay hydrated and use the center’s ice machine often. The amount of time they spend outside in a day is determined by how many people come by the center to drop off refuse.

He said the heat definitely affects the smell of the garbage.

“It’s a very hard job, but they do a good job,” Hill said.

Heilman insists on getting a jump on the hot weather, if he can help it.

“If today was cool, but you knew tomorrow was going to get in the 100s, you should be pounding water today, because that’s what’s going to help you the next day,” said Heilman. “Once you get dehydrated, and then you start drinking water, it’s too late at that point.”

Heilman said officers typically wear a polyester uniform with a short sleeve shirt and long pants, boots, a protective vest, body camera and utility belt on their 12 hour minimum summer shifts. Heilman and Janderup said the extra equipment weighs about 25 pounds.

“When I got home after working a hot day, when you take that vest off, it’s like a furnace,” Janderup said. Heilman said he has to wring out his undershirt after days outside, and many officers experience skin irritation from sweat crystallizing under their vests.

Heilman said officers spend at least a third of their shifts outside, even if they can periodically get back into their cars between patrols, traffic accidents or emergency situations.

For fires, firefighters will work in quick bursts and then switch out with people who have been on break, and for EMS calls, supervisors will try to give teams a break after a few hours by assigning new employees to that duty.

Fire Chief William “Pat” Dent said the equipment that protects first responders from fires weighs about 45 pounds. He said the station is fortunate to have two sets of protective equipment for each firefighter, so they can have clean, dry gear when they need it and that the modern liner allows for more air flow than the heavy jackets and pants used to.

Fire Capt. Bradley Beam, who coordinates EMS responses, said wearing the gear is still like walking outside in full winter clothing, and then taking that into a superheated building.

“Obviously there’s a fine line, where we don’t want them so protected that they get in dangerous situations, because you may get too far in a building because you’re able to withstand more heat,” Dent said. “We still want them to feel some heat because they have to use their experience on when it’s time for us to retreat or keep going forward.”

Cutting the amount of time firefighters work in that heat in a single stretch means the station calls for additional trucks to every fire, so they can rotate out who goes into the blaze. Coming out of the burning building in this heat doesn’t provide much relief, though, so they can also choose to bring their cooling truck, which has misting fans and special vests that run cold water through rubber tubes to lower a person’s core temperature.

Beam said more than 70 percent of their calls this time of year are for medical assistance to people who are overheated. Firefighters don’t wear their full equipment when they answer those calls, but Beam said each call still meant about an hour and a half outside for the responders.

The fire and police departments do their best not just to keep their own employees cool, but to help the community avoid overheating. In addition to the free waters and Slurpee coupons, Dent suggested that people who don’t have air conditioning seek out public buildings that can provide refuge from the heat.

womens timberland shoes County council questions Hinkley about NDP plans

Wetaskiwin Camrose MLA Bruce Hinkley was invited to attend the June 9 meeting of the county council, and he and the councillors engaged in a brief question and answer session around several issues.

Sewage systems for hamlets

eight years ago, 10 years ago, there used to be a program for small hamlets to be able to participate in installing sewage systems and all of a sudden that program disappeared, he said.

sewage still needs to be installed. That program would help us an awful lot if it were reinstated, when we inherit villages that decide to become hamlets, Lyseng continued, adding that the cost is a large one of the county to carry.

Hinkley asked if that would be part of a larger infrastructure issue, saying, it not just this item, Infrastructure totally has support. Infrastructure needs to get up, caught up with what happening, and that it would be something he would note and take back to the legislature with him.

Minimum wage

Coun. Trevor Miller brought forward the question of minimum wage and how it was going to be approached.

It going to come in gradually. also shared the story of Minnesota senator Mark Dayton, who increased the minimum wage in the state, which yielded positive results in areas such as unemployment rates, the state deficit, small businesses and education over his four years in office.

He said that the NDP is going keep an eye on it that going to impact society because Rachel Notley, in her campaign promises was the job creation plan. We know the reliance on the oil, petroleum, is going to decrease, and that support should shift over to small businesses, which between 60 per cent and 70 per cent of the jobs. So we should be supporting small businesses. funding

Reeve Don Gregorwich questioned Hinkley regarding the municipal sustainability initiative (MSI) funding, which the county has designating for infrastructure.

of our concerns is that we like to know if we still going to receive what was promised, he said.

Hinkley answered that the NDP has currently requested an audit and, to give you excuses, but the financial picture is not clear.

can I give you a definitive answer on your MSI? I can It is one of those areas that I know is under deliberation, Hinkley said, adding that he wasn sure county would want the previous agreement, which saw cuts to the budget and timeline after counties and municipalities had already started planning.

percentage and years that we settle at has to be committed to. Those deliberations are going on right now, so exactly what those will be at this point I cannot tell you.
