Acts THE SOUTHEAST JOURNAL Dominion City News By Shirley Berrington We were blessed with another gorgeous couple of days this weekend and the above normal temperatures that continued this week were a real gift. The days have become really short, as mornings are quite dark now. The time changes November 2nd, so it will be a little brighter in the morning for a little while. Hopefully, the nice weather can hold out for Halloween, when the little trick-or-treaters come knocking. Our country was shaken by the horrific shooting of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo at the National Wa r M e m o r i a l i n Ottawa on Wednesday. Our Prime Minister Harper called this an act of terror, as our country is no longer immune to these terrorist attacks. Tw o s o l d i e r s w e r e purposely run down in Quebec on Monday, by a man tied to Jihad, with one soldier being injured fatally. Our sympathy goes out to all the friends and family of these slain army personnel. We will recover as we stand united against terror but our country has surely lost its innocence. Wednesday, October 22, was Election Day in Manitoba. Congratulations go Riverside Rosenort News October 25, 2014 Pg.2 out to Brian Bowman for his outstanding win for the Mayor of Winnipeg, garnishing 47.5% of the vote.

That’s why our Conservative Government originally introduced the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit (CFTC). This important measure helps make it more affordable for Canadian families to register their kids in fitness activities. Now our Government is happy to announce that we are doubling the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit amount to $1,000, and we’re making it refundable— making this tax credit more beneficial to lowincome families. These proposed enhancements, which fulfill a commitment made by the Government in 2011, will provide tax relief for Canadian families of about $25 million in fiscal year 2014-2015, and $35 million annually thereafter. The CFTC currently provides tax relief to 1.4 million families who enrol their children in eligible fitness activities. When fully implemented, these enhancements will deliver additional tax relief to about 850,000 families. The following example illustrates how doubling the credit will benefit a family. A couple with one child has $950 in eligible expenses in 2014 – including $300 for the child’s fall football program plus $650 for the child’s winter hockey program. Under the current Children’s Fitness Tax Credit, the couple’s tax liability is reduced by $75 (15 per cent of the maximum credit amount of $500). Under the proposed doubling of the credit, their tax liability would be reduced by about $142 (15 per cent of $950). Our Government proposes to make the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit refundable, effective for the 2015 tax year and subsequent tax years. Making the credit refundable will increase benefits to low-income families claiming the credit. The example below illustrates how making the credit refundable will benefit a family. A couple has two children in a soccer program at a cost of $240 per child in 2015. The family’s income is too low and the credit, as it currently stands, is of no benefit to them. By making the credit refundable as proposed, the couple will be better off by $72 ($36 per child based on 15 per cent of $240). The family’s tax refund would include this $72. Since coming into office, we’ve been committed to helping make life easier for families. That’s why we introduced choice in child care with the Universal Child Care Benefit, slashed the GST twice, introduced the Tax-Free Savings Account and the Children’s Art Tax Credit, and implemented many other important initiatives. In total, our G o v e r n m e n t ’s l o w tax plan is saving the average family of four $3,400 per year. And, once the Budget is balanced, we will deliver even more tax relief that helps hardworking families keep more of their hard earned money in their pockets. By doubling the CFTC and making it refundable, our Conservative Government is helping make life more affordable for hardworking Canadian families.

Harper illustrates the shallowness of his own thinking in his latest empty gesture. Does he really think that the WWII vets are so shallow in their thinking that they will persuade all of their friends and relatives to vote for Mr. Harper and his lackeys because he gave them a pretty piece of paper and a lapel pin? These veterans receive all of the recognition they want or need on Nov 11th, when millions of Canadians buy poppies and attend the Remembrance Day ceremonies. Previous governments rewarded them very generously w i t h t h e Ve t e r a n ’s Land Act, Housing program and education October 25, 2014 Pg. 4 program. They don’t need any more recognition. What the veterans need is some action, on the part of Mr. Harper’s government to relieve the suffering of those young men and women coming back from Kosovo, Afghanistan etc, with PTSD. This was not a problem in WWII because it was a clean war. We knew who the enemy was and we knew that he was evil. When our troops were not eye-ball to eye-ball with the enemy they could relax among friends. In Afghanistan they were surrounded by the enemy at all times and they had no idea who they were. That young man smiling and giving a friendly wave was quite likely waiting for you to go a few more yards down the road and step on one of the EIDs which he had set out last night. Very few people are able to withstand the stress of being under constant siege for months on end. They need a lot of help and they are not getting it. Bill Rolls Emerson.

They devised the game involving answering Ridgeville related questions based on clues found on route which, this year, took them from Ridgeville to “new bridge” to Stuartburn down the #14 and back to the Ridge along the 2 mile. 10 teams participated in the day long adventure which ended back at The Club where they partook in a tasty buffet of soup & subs. The winners were team “To beat”, Mike and Lesley Froom, followed by team “Aint easy”, Kyle, Misty, Lori and Koop, in 2nd place. Cribbage News. Last Monday 9 teams met at The Club. Patty and Duaine took the big prize followed by Sonya and Diane. This week 8 teams played. Sonya and Dianne came in second while Patty and Duaine took first place. It’s almost time to don your costumes and come to The Club for Halloween frivolities on the evening of Oct 31. See you there! What a beautiful Autumn we are having. It’s been a long time since I’ve so much colour, lasting so long. I was really struck, on my journey to Edmonton, how beautiful the prairie landscape can be. Now that yard cleanup is almost done I am eager to get at my easel and paints, to try to capture some of those shapes and colour under that amazing prairie sky. y Ridgeville News By Janis Nickel 14104gg02 Advertise in the Journal Reaching: RM of Franklin RM of Montcalm RM of Morris Town of Morris Town of Emerson THE SOUTHEAST JOURNAL October 25, 2014 Pg 7 Palliative Care Team Members Say Goodbye Submitted By Holly Rafferty represent more than thirty years of service to the program which aims to support clients who are facing end-ofMembers of the Red t o s a y f a r e w e l l t o and Pr.

Red River Palliative Care Committee September Recap from Southern Manitoba October 16, 2014 Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada Border Services Agency The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is pleased to share a sample of September 2014 highlights from the border crossings in southern Manitoba. This sampling underscores the CBSA’s commitment to keeping communities safe and ensuring our laws are respected. On September 2, CBSA officers in Sprague seized a restricted semiautomatic rifle, a 15-round over-capacity magazine, and a trailer with a homemade compartment built into the bottom. The 46-yearold male foreign national was issued a $1500 a penalty. The investigation is ongoing. Officers in Winkler seized a can of pepper spray on September 4, in a Minnesota man’s vehicle. The man was issued a penalty of $500 and was allowed to enter Canada. On September 10, Emerson officers seized a shipment of 20 prohibited semiautomatic firearm parts as not only did the importer not have the proper import permits, but he also was not licenced to import these prohibited firearm devices. The entire shipment was refused entry. The seized parts would allow a semiautomatic rifle to fire at a very rapid rate of fire. The investigation is ongoing. Also on September 10, CBSA officers at the port of Lena arrested a 33-year-old North Dakota man found hiding under a blanket in the rear of a vehicle in an attempt to avoid examination. The man was charged under the Customs Act for failing to present himself to an officer upon arrival to Canada. He was sentenced to 60 days in jail. Emerson officers seized a prohibited 9mm handgun and 10 overcapacity magazines from a 22-year-old North Carolina man on September 25. The CBSA charged the man with six offences under the Customs Act. He was sentenced to 21 days jail time and a $4,000 fine. On September 26, a 32-year-old commercial driver from Minnesota was denied entry at Emerson for numerous drug-related convictions, and he returned to the U.S. On September 30, two family members from the Bahamas sought entry into Canada to visit for six months. However, further examination revealed they were actually intending to work and stay in Canada permanently without authorization. They were denied entry at Emerson and both returned to the U.S. Quick Facts • There were 156,708 travellers and 113,328 cars in southern Manitoba. • There were 21,221 commercial trucks and 58,936 shipments. • Officers completed 53 permanent resident landings, and issued 143 work permits and 46 study permits. • Fifteen people were arrested for Franklin from Page 5 2.

October 25, 2014 Pg 8 THE SOUTHEAST JOURNAL It Occurs to Me Things That Go Bump in the Night By Joanne Graydon When my daughter was little she often came to me in the night with tears in her eyes. There was something frightening her. After answering a few questions it turned out snakes were crawling under her bed. The same fears returned night after night and finally a lack of sleep forced me to find a way to ease her worries. I found an old spray bottle, filled it with water and carefully printed a label that read, “Snake Away”. I told her I’d gone to the store and found a special spray that would get rid of those nasty snakes. With both hands she gripped the handle and squeezed the trigger a few times- dousing her fears. “It Occurs to Me” my fears can be real or imaginary. Most of my fears rise from thoughts of what might happen and if I let my imagination wander, fear can create all kinds of anxieties. Other fears follow an actual event like getting lost in a parking lot or being confined in a small space. But my childhood fears are the toughest ones to overcome. They linger for years deep down inside waiting for the right circumstances to surface -forcing me to relive a fear-filled moment from the past. All Hallow’s Eve is right around the corner. Visions of witches flying on broomsticks, ghosts floating overhead and ghastly figures creeping through the night raise my heartbeat and send chills down my spine. Rubber masks with long crooked noses and a mouthful of sharp decaying teeth still frighten me while I imagine vampires, werewolves and Draculas appearing out of the dark -bloodthirsty for an unsuspecting victim. I cringe at the sight of sharpened axes, swords and machetes hanging off the belts of villainous characters and heightened superstitions darken my reality. Just thinking about the horrors created for one night of revelry nearly sends me running to hide under the bed. Whatever happened to the not so scary Halloween? Princesses, policemen and scarecrows used to be 14104qq00 popular disguises that never terrorized the neighbourhood. Trick or Treating was about more treats than tricks and no one had to worry about sorting through a pillowcase filled with possible dangers. I remember walking through a haunted house where the most frightening thing was a dangling rubber spider. Nowadays chainsaws hacking away at various body parts is the norm. Or a gruesome graveyard littered with decomposed bodies infested with maggots. I envy people who have no fear of the horrendous boogie man or the clackity clack of skeleton bones hanging from a noose. I admire the courage of anyone who can laugh at the sight of black widow spiders and slithery snakes. And I’m jealous of movie goers who can sit in a darkened theatre waiting to be chilled and thrilled at the sounds of helpless tortured victims. I guess you could call me a “scaredy-cat” or a wimp or just plain silly but the things that raise my fears threaten to return at this time of year. My senses are on alert for a tap tap tapping sound at the back door or for a bloodcurdling scream echoing from the muddy waters edging the creek. Am I ready to face the fear of strange sorcerers lurking around the corner or the bone-chilling growls of a black cat sharpening her claws before an attack? Maybe this year I’ll be able to ignore the decaying corpses rising from their graves to walk the earth once more. And if I’m lucky, I will avoid dropping mirrors, walking under ladders and spilling salt! I’ve been told to “face my fears” many times and perhaps this year I’ll take my own advice and fill a spray bottle with some water and print a label guaranteeing to cure my fear of “Things that go bump in the night!” R.M. of Montcalm Minutes These minutes have been editted.

CARRIED October 25, 2014 Pg 9 THE SOUTHEAST JOURNAL Down The Road We Go by Brennan Turner, President, FarmLead.com Grains started to trek higher as we headed towards the end of the month, mostly due to international market prices picking up pace. This is primarily due to a poor start to the crops getting planted (South America & winter cereals in Europe) and a delayed harvest in the north hemisphere (mostly just North America now) leading to quality concerns. Case in point, the Ukraine Ag Ministry says that while wheat production increased 6.3 per cent year-over-year to 23.7 million tonnes, the percentage that met milling spec is down to 54 per cent from 75 per cent last year. On that note, with the U.S. Dollar appreciating against other major wheat exporting nations has made these other nations more attractive to source from (i.e. Russia, Ukraine, Australia, and even here in Canada). Thus, even though they said they wouldn’t get back into the market for a while, Egypt bought 180,000 tonnes of Russian, Romanian, & French wheat at an average delivered price of $255.50 per metric tonne, four per cent higher than their last purchase on October 10th. With depreciated currencies to source from, it’s hard for Egypt to NOT turn the engine back on & drive down the road, purchasing boatloads of product along the way. Wheat prices have started to see a bit of a tick up in price recently (this does not include durum because it’s on another planet right now) but the overall picture continues to be neutralbearish. The main forces driving the bull argument is drier weather in Australia dropping the production from the current expectation of 24-25 million tonnes and up to one million tonnes of production potentially lost in Brazil because of disease. This may open the door for more North American exports to Brazil (as was seen this past year) but with wheat acres increasing Argentina, the Brazilians will likely choose to source next door instead. Another bullish indicator could be the slowdeveloping winter crop planted in the Black Sea as dry conditions has led to “stalled wheat germination”. With winter temperatures coming as early as this weekend in some areas, it may be difficult for the crops to survive the winter without big losses. On the bearish side, the soil moisture profile Southeast Journal Business Directory Join our Business Directory-$50 per month Your gift to the MEAHF will benefit our communities for generations to come.

There’s an argument being made that the increasing number of call options being bought in the corn market since it hit its 2014 low of $3.20 at the end of September, is indicating that the market is expecting prices to rebound in the short-term. While long-term sentiment seems to be neutral-bearish, notable signs for a correction include livestock prices remaining near record highs and U.S. ethanol production picking up steam in the Q4 in three of the last four years. Further, thanks to its current $70 per metric tonne discount to soft red wheat in the export market, corn may take a larger portion of U.S. grain in international feed markets. Ultimately, with more than two-thirds of the U.S. corn crop still left to come off, there will definitely be some pressure in the cash markets (especially considering individual storage capacity), but there is a glimmer of light a few miles (er, months) down the road.

Many of us in the news biz consider election nights like Christmas. Aside from a massive breaking news story it can be the busiest day of the year. Several Manitoba communities are wrapping up a political campaign. I can’t help but reflect on the trash talking and mudslinging that is an election. And remember, we are less than one year away from a federal election. Yo u h a v e t h e promises, the broken promises, the tax hikes, the tax hikes (did I write that one already?), the he-said-she-said, the tax hikes (oops, there we go again). But all in all it’s a whole lot of nothing -- at least that’s how voters see it. Candidates are asked a simple question, we get a five-minute response that often includes one of the other candidate’s names and what he or she has or hasn’t done, and are not always given a direct answer. Many SEJ readers k n o w me f r o m my Winnipeg Cheapskate column in the Free Press and in early September we shot a video where I asked candidates how they would save m e m o n e y. T h e y were allowed a twosentence reply (and no mudslinging). And holy cripes, I had never seen such overly worded runon sentences in my life. So as several Manitoba communities brace for a change (or not, depending on the cynics you ask), the drama leading up to an election nearly overshadows the act of casting a ballot. And once the polls close on election day it is almost like the weeks of championing is all done. The results aren’t often as entertaining as the lead up. What do us newsy folks look forward to during an election? The accusations, the finger pointing, the drama -- and then of course when the first runner-up admits defeat and has to graciously congratulate the winner (and you know it is said with true insincerity). That’s my point. What’s yours? Tell me at www.speakfreewithjb. com.

THE SOUTHEAST JOURNAL Shine A Light On Pancreatic Cancer Purple Lights Campaign launched during National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month OTTAWA (October 21, 2014) In the next 10 - 15 years pancreatic cancer will be the 2nd leading cause of cancer death. Currently 4700 Canadians are diagnosed every year and 75% of them will die within the first year of diagnosis – most within the first 3-6 months. The survival rate – 6% – for pancreatic cancer hasn’t budged in the past four decades, while the survival rates for all other cancers have improved in the same time period, some dramatically. These devastating statistics become even more disturbing when you learn that pancreatic cancer is the least funded cancer, receiving less than one per cent (1%) of all private and government funding for research. So, know that Pancreatic Cancer Canada will launch its Purple Lights Campaign on November 1, 2014 to raise awareness of this ‘silent killer’ in the lives of Canadians. Cities across Canada have agreed to light up their iconic buildings in purple light in support of the cause. Businesses in cities and towns are doing the same and individuals are lighting up their homes to shine a light on pancreatic cancer in the lives of Canadians across the country.
