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

Hallowe’en is Here
It’s time for Hallowe’en,
A day for trick or treat.
When the kids dress up in costume
And walk proudly down the street.
They ring a lot of doorbells,
And collect a lot of candy too,
And if they happen to see a ghost,
They will be greeted with a Boo.
Pumpkins light up the windows
And decorations adorn the front yard.
So be careful when you come in,
Because the skeleton will be on guard.
So go have a lot of fun,
And don’t have any fears,
Because it will soon be over,
And you’ll have to wait till next year.
Happy Hallowe’en – till next time – take care.

Supporting Families
Regular exercise is
essential to a child’s
successful development
and gets them started
on a lifetime of healthy,
active living.
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
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
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
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

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

don’t need any more
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

Art Club Holds Another Successful
Show By Ann Decima
On Saturday, October
18, the Morris Art Club
held their 2014 Annual
Show on the Mezzanine
Floor of the Morris
Multiplex Building.
A total of 83 items
were displayed using
acrylic, water colour
and graphite. Janine
Rivard, one of the art
club members, also
creates pottery and
displayed a number
of pieces. She also
provided her potter’s
wheel to demonstrate
the technique of using
the wheel.
The Art club has
held a Silent Auction
in conjunction with the
show for the past several
years with the proceeds
used to hire qualified
instructors to provide art
lessons to the members.
T h e “ P e o p l e ’s
Choice” also garners
a lot of interest. Each
member provides one
piece of art and each
visitor to the show
gets a chance to vote
on his or her favourite
painting. No, no one
wins the painting but
the artist whose picture
receives the most votes
can proudly say “I won
the People’s Choice this
The Art Club meets
every Tuesday evening
at 7 p.m. in the Art
Room of the Morris
School. New members
are always welcome.

I hope you all had a
great Thanksgiving. I
spent the week-end in
Edmonton with my son
Mike. I took advantage
of the long drive to
stop and visit friends
in Milita, Outlook, SK,
Smoky Lake, AB, and
Regina. It was a really
nice holiday but it is
good to be back home.
Club Events:
Last Saturday was
the occasion of The
Club’s annual car rally.
The weather was very
cooperative and some
40 people showed up
for the challenge. This
year’s organizers were
Marinus Hop, Erin
Arbuckle and Josh
Kerda. 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.

September Recap from Southern
Manitoba October 16, 2014 Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada Border Services
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
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.

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
“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
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!”

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

for planted U.S. winter wheat crops
appear to be the best in the past three
years as well as the aforementioned
cheaper sources.
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.

“To the Point”
By Jeremy Bradley
Merry Election Day!
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.

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

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
