By Leslie DeGagne
November, trees stripped of their dressings, tall sentinels on the horizon against a gray cloudy sky, never
wavering always watching as the final days of autumn
play out. November, the month we pay homage to our
past brethren, those who have come before us, those
who have fallen in battle, and those who defined our
country. November, the month we can reflect on what
has past and what will be. November, make it a time to
remember.
Remembrance Day, November 11, is the one important day of the month. I think about how we take the
time to gather and pay homage to those who fought
in the great wars and wonder if they would like what
they see. These men defined Canada as a nation and
gained us the reputation we have in the world today.
There are not many of these people left and younger
fresher faces have taken their place as veterans of war.

When World War II ended, the hope was that the world
would learn from the battle and never again would we
see the hatred and carnage that occurred happen again.
The world we live in is moving toward the unthinkable
and conversations need to begin. Our veterans gained
independence for Canada, it is something we cherish,
and we must take the time to turn off our phones, ignore the emails and truly give a moment of our day to
pay tribute to the deeds of our fallen veterans.
I have spent some time thinking about the month of
November and how important it is to our society. The
month starts out with All Saints Day, then moves on
to Remembrance Day and finishes with the American
Thanksgiving. It is a month where football leagues finish in Canada and begin in earnest in the States. Winter
sports become a reality and the skies pray for snow in
the mountains. Transition is the key word.
Look out for the annual TGWL craft fair coming to the
community November 14 and 15. This is the best craft
fair in the city for its size and it is a great way to kick
off your Christmas shopping season and visit with
friends at the same time. Thank you goes this month
to the Booster club for helping us update our lighting
outside the building. Energy saving and safety minded
at the same time users of the building will appreciate
the upgrade as the darkest days of the year descend
upon us. I would also like to thank Doug MacLean for
overseeing our election of directors last month and, on
behalf of the membership, thank those who stepped up
to become directors at large for the upcoming year. The
community appreciates your dedication and time and
I hope we have a good year moving forward. We see
some challenges ahead but having communication and
conversation will help to do what is best for the community as a whole.

When winter hits,
we’re ready.
You can count on city employees
to keep our neighbourhoods safe
and clear — in any weather.
Big storms often don’t give you much
warning. A city like Calgary needs a
team in place that can hit the streets
with a few hours notice.
Fortunately, that’s just what we have.
When the snow flew early this year,
Calgary’s city employees were prepared:
plowing streets and sidewalks, clearing
downed branches, trees and other debris,
salting and sanding.
We’re your reliable, dedicated team.
So when some politicians talk about
replacing experienced public employees
with for-profit contractors, know that it
comes at a price.
When your family’s safety is on the line,
cutting corners isn’t worth it.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have given their
lives for Peace as well as those who continue to work towards
peace. We will be celebrating Remembrance Day in our school
liturgy on November 7.
October was a busy month with our students participating in the
Student Learner Assessment for grade three and grade six. Our
grade three and grade four students completed their swimming
lessons in late September. The Grade One students and Kindergarten students also enjoyed their fieldtrip to Fish Creek Park.
Our academic focus continues to be Success for all Students
with our spiritual focus this year Love Kindness.
With this in mind we are working as a school community to
build resiliency and to demonstrate Love Kindness by our ac-

Public service
report
Drop In Centre:
At the time of writing, the application for assisted living
for the hotel at Mcknight and Edmonton Trail is still in
the city permit application process. The provincial government has continued to be firm that they want grant
money for the project returned due to contract noncompliance by the Drop In Centre (CDIC). Conditions
not meant include but are not limited to the number,
and configuration of housing units and lack of community consultation. The CDIC has maintained that they
are in compliance and/or that they will proceed regardless of the provincial grant money. It’s important to
understand that city development permit process and
the provincial grant are two different issues/processes.
TGCA will continue to work with the CDIC if possible and
take the matter to the Subdivision Development Appeal
Board if necessary. Please see our Facebook page for
more detailed TGCA position statements and for more
up to date information.
Skateboard Park:
The long awaited and hard fought for Skate Park which
was to be constructed in August has been delayed until
next year. City Parks were to construct four parks this fall
including the one by the Thornhill Library but tenders
submitted were all above budget. The intention is to
wait until 2015 with the approval of several more parks
and attempt to use a single contractor with a better
overall price tag.
LRT on Centre:
The North Central routing has favoured Centre Street
over Edmonton Trail. Recommendations are expected
to go to committee in December. TGCA hopes to submit our position at that time. This is still a very long way
away and many, many details need to be worked out
yet.
Playground:
I had an email from a resident last month about the tired
and aged state of the playground near the community
hall. I’d like to hear from any and all who have an interest
in seeing this revitalized.
Highland Park Golf Course Redevelopment:
10
The developer is still at the exploration stage within the
city departments. One of the major stumbling blocks is
storm water management in the valley. Now over a year
into this and really we are only beginning the process.

North Central LRT
Project Update
nel, with two driving lanes in each direction on the surface (requires 20 metre width).
What we heard
There was a preference for the Centre Street alignment
with a tunnel in the southernmost segment connecting
to downtown and the wide road layout throughout the
route.
The North Central LRT is the north leg of the Greenline,
the next new LRT line in Calgary’s rapid transit network.
As outlined in RouteAhead, a 30-year strategic plan for
transit in Calgary, the Greenline will eventually run from
North Pointe in north central Calgary to Seton in the
southeast, with future extensions to the north possible
in the longer term.
Public Engagement
Three public engagement events were held in April, to
identify the public’s preferences relating to the two remaining route options (Centre Street North and Edmonton Trail Northeast).
During the three events, over 575 people actively participated in group discussions about route preferences,
pedestrian access, traffic impacts, community/land acquisitions impacts and relative costs of the various options.
Information was also provided for the road layout after
construction of the LRT. Three options were provided:
1.Wide: LRT and two driving lanes in each direction (requires 30 metre width).
2.Wide with parking: LRT, one driving lane, and one
parking lane in each direction (requires 28 metre
width).
3.Narrow: LRT and one driving lane in each direction
(requires 20 metre width).
•Tunnel: – provided as an option only for the southern
segment into downtown: LRT is underground in a tun18
The project’s Community Advisory Group comprised
of residents and business owners preferred the narrow
option south of McKnight Boulevard to minimize disruption to land owners, tenants, and businesses. The
project Steering Committee (directors and managers
with The City) also endorsed the narrow option south
of McKnight Boulevard to support The City’s long-term
land use and transportation goals.
The narrow option maintains one traffic lane in each direction with the LRT running in the middle. The addition
of the LRT will mostly occur within the existing width
of Centre Street. This approach will still require some
property purchases, but not to the extent that would be
needed if the road was widened, reducing disruption
to Calgarians who live and make a living along Centre
Street. The wide option can be implemented north of
McKnight Boulevard, where the road is wide enough to
carry the LRT and two lanes of traffic.
Next Steps
We will be taking a closer look at the route on Centre
Street and determining how the LRT will be incorporated into the urban fabric of existing communities, defining how it will connect with downtown and refining the
construction cost estimates for the project.
We will be meeting with surrounding communities and
stakeholders this fall to discuss the Centre Street route.
We will also have open houses in mid-October to share
our findings with Calgarians before presenting recommendations to the committee on Transportation and
Transit in December, and City Council in January. Visit
www.calgarytransit.com/nclrt for updates.

at a free meeting of the Friends of Nose Hill,
on Wednesday, November 12, at Triwood
Community Centre, 7 p.m.
Coyotes were once called song dogs in First
Nations myth. The urban coyote now lives
in nature surrounded by urban development. Citizens report seeing coyotes and a
few have negative interactions with them.
But does that mean you need to be afraid
of coyotes? She will explore how coyotes
live in the city, what challenges they face,
and how we can co-exist without fear.
the Friends
of Nose Hill
by Anne Burke
Shelley Alexander at the U. of C.
Geography department handraised coyote pups while researching pack behaviour and
non-lethal deterrents. She will
be the guest speaker (and answer questions from the public)
Alexander led a guided walk around
Nose Hill, which supports a small group
of coyotes in an urban green space. She
describes what type of habitat (in parks
like Nose Hill) is important to coyotes and
answers whether coyotes were living in
these places before the city was built. Or,
are coyotes “invading” cities, like you hear
in the media?
Next to spring denning, another critical
conflict time is fall for the “dispersal season”,
when coyotes reaching maturity leave the
pack to fend for themselves. This is a period
of stress for coyotes, and when hungry, they
will sometimes roam residential areas looking for food.
This summer there were concerns over wild
animal trapping in the city, as well as how
we manage the encroachment of bears
and cougars. Or are we in their space? Urban wildlife is a reality, and experts from
the Calgary Zoo as well as Alberta Fish and
Wildlife will bring forward an Urban Wildlife Strategy.
The city can be a better custodian of good
animal welfare practice. Animal and Bylaw
Services already plans to meet with other
agencies. Be pro-active to avoid conflict
with animals like beavers, by planting trees
along the river, placing wire around tree
trunks, and providing under-dam drains to
control water levels.
A cougar found prowling at the South Calgary Health Campus delayed many police
officers who waited for the Alberta Fish
and Wildlife officials to arrive. Of course we
need to respect the potential for harm to
the public. The Minister of Justice & Solicitor
General announced a review of the Provincial Government’s response in this situation.

The federal department of Veterans Affairs Canada
states that November 11 is a day of “remembrance
for the men and women who have served, and
continue to serve our country during times of war,
conflict and peace”; specifically, the First and Second
World Wars, the Korean War, and all conflicts since then in which members of
the Canadian Forces have participated. The department runs a program called
Canada Remembers with the mission of helping young and new Canadians,
most of whom have never known war, “come to understand and appreciate
what those who have served Canada in times of war, armed conflict and peace
stand for and what they have sacrificed for their country”.

Huntington Hills school
Huntington Hills School is located in the northwest community of Huntington Hills. We are a small school with an
enrollment of approximately 225 students from Kindergarten through Grade 6. Our opening this year was exciting
and energizing and we were pleased to make connections
with our supportive and friendly community. Our students
were excited to see the new naturalization area in both our
front and back areas. This project has been a three-year endeavour for our school and we want to thank our devoted
parents for the many hours to make our vision a reality, including watering and maintaining our new trees, bushes,
and grass the entire summer. From 64th Avenue, you should
be able to view our handmade concrete mounds with a dry
creek bed, amphitheatre, learning pods, and a willow-tunnel feature. It is an exceptional learning space for our students to develop stewardship, relaxing and private places
for our students, and to develop ecological understanding.
Our next step in this legacy will be to connect with the Calgary Zoo program Grounds for Change through staff, parent
and student activities to deepen our understanding of how
to utilize a naturalization area. As well, we would like to recognize Kris Mann and his company Artisan Scapes for all of
their creative work as this project is truly an image of nature.
As a Calgary Board of Education school, we always want our
community to feel welcome and connected to us. We are a
Calgary Reads school which brings together reading tutors
for students Kindergarten through Grade 2 learning to read
and build a life-long love of literacy. If you are interested in
the possibility of becoming a tutor, please contact Calgary
Reads at www.calgaryreads.com.
Our students are always experiencing new places and spaces! Our Grade 5 and 6 students explored the Bennett Science
Centre and visited the Alberta Legislature in Edmonton during a three-day field trip. As well, our entire school has been
taking part in a tennis residency with First Serve Tennis which
included a few visits to the Huntington Hills Tennis Courts.
We also want to thank the Alberta Foundation for the Arts
for accepting our grant proposal to work with artists Carole
Bondaroff and Stan Phelps from Heart Studies. Our entire
school population will be learning about print-making as
well as how to develop graphic novel skills to develop our
ability to express ourselves through art.

Simons Valley

neighborhood pharmacy of choice.
Formerly known as Simons Valley Drug Mart
we have recently undergone a rebranding, but we are
still the same friendly neighborhood pharmacy that you have known for years!
Our commitment as a company is to exceed your expectations by providing value added support services which
go far beyond dispensing drugs. Whatever your needs, you can depend on our knowledgeable health care staff

public and are authorized by the Alberta College of Pharmacists and Alberta Health Services to access and
administer the provincially provided vaccines?*
Canada’s National Advisory Committee on Immunization recommends that everyone 6 months old or older
should get a flu vaccine. Getting the flu vaccine, either as a shot or as a spray that you breathe through the
nose, every fall just before the start of the flu season can help prevent you from getting the flu.
YOU CANNOT GET THE FLU FROM THE FLU VACCINE! Protect yourself against the flu, get immunized every
year. Make it part of your fall routine!.
Stop by and see Anamaria or Hubert, YOUR Sandstone Pharmacists, TODAY to book your appointment to get
your flu vaccine!
