Alberta will seek more municipal input on ambulance services ... | all things magrath | Scoop.it
Senior officials from various municipalities will be part of working groups to address issues with the province's consolidation of ambulance dispatch services.
Roger Davies's insight:

this would be refreshing .. we have never been asked before! In Magrath the EMS service was excellently and professionally run by local volunteers .. until AHS swooped in last year to take it over and start discussions on shutting it down. Meanwhile, the dedicated volunteers keep serving Magrath (I would have been tempted to walk away or go on strike). Meanwhile .. don't hold your breath. You might pass out and fall down and we are unsure if the ambulance will be available ...

Alberta floods push federal deficit to $3.8B
CBC.ca
The gap between how much the federal government spends versus how much it takes in went further into the red in September, in part because of costs related to the devastating Alberta floods.
Roger Davies's insight:

except the deficit was already on its way to gigantic well before the flood and much of the funding that will be required is in future budget periods .. hmmm .. but let's blame it on the flood for now.

Saying Lord's Prayer at school to continue for now in SE Alberta
CBC.ca
The practice of reciting the Lord's Prayer will continue for now at some schools in southeastern Alberta.
Roger Davies's insight:

I don't really know the Lord's Prayer from memory, but the premise that we HAVE to separate church and state in every institution is just wrong thinking (and not really possible). We vote politicians into office BECAUSE they have great qualities and values. We WANT excellent and trustworthy teachers teaching our children. When will we come to understand that people are good BECAUSE of their religious upbringing? The whispered lie that church must be removed is just wrong. Why not take what is good from all around us and improve on that? It is this diversity that makes us strong. Come on people, we are not Quebec here, after all :> .. http://aphilosopherstake.com/2013/11/19/quebec-charter-of-values-separating-our-state-from-your-religion/
