LCol Joe Mullins, left, Associate Minister of National Defence Julian Fantino and WCWO Bob Viel stand in front of some heavy
equipment at 4 Wing last Wednesday. More construction is on the horizon following Fantino’s announcement of $45.7 million in
infrastructure upgrades.
Jeff Gaye
Associate
Minister
of
National
Defence
Julian
Fantino was in Cold Lake
last week to announce $45.7
million in upgrades to 4 Wing
infrastructure. Acting Wing
Commander LCol Joe Mullins
and Cold Lake mayor Craig
Copeland were enthusiastic
about the news.
The
Department
of
National Defence will build
a new health services centre,
repair airfield infrastructure
and
upgrade
Residential
Housing Units (RHUs).
The
health
services
centre will be built near the
intersection
of
Kingsway
and Queensway, and will
combine medical, dental and
physiotherapy clinics under
one roof. It is expected to be
completed in 2017, at a cost of
nearly $14 million.
Airfield
upgrades,
including runway resurfacing,
are expected to cost $15.8
million, and RHU upgrades
will be worth $16 million.
The RHU recapitalization
will
include
repairs
to
exterior
finishes
and
replacement of materials with
longer-lasting materials.
LCol Mullins described
the news as “three big
announcements,
three
big wins for 4 Wing.” He
said
the
projects
will
enhance the wing’s operational
ability.
“This base is 60 years old,”
he said. While the airfield
upgrades have a direct
effect on operations, the
other issues are also tied
in. “Housing is a concern for
our members. This will make
the RHUs more efficient
and more comfortable. And a
new clinic is one of the Wing
Commander’s top priorities.”
He said there may be a
future role for the existing
medical clinic building as a
civilian clinic.
“When you support the
family, you support the
member,” he said.
Copeland said the federal
investment is “fantastic news.”
He said upgrades to the
airfield, including addressing
existing drainage issues, will
help the city’s efforts to attract
a commercial carrier to Cold
Lake.
He said the city or Alberta
Health Services “might be
interested in taking a look
at” the existing medical clinic
at the Canex mall to see if
a community medical clinic
could make good use of the
site.
The housing upgrades
are the best news for military
members, and could also be a
boost for contractors in Cold
Lake, he said.
Fantino compared wing
infrastructure to a CF-18
fighter. “It requires continual
maintenance, diligent upkeep
and leading-edge materiel to
keep it running at operational
speed and an optimum level of
deployment,” he said.
The
infrastructure
investments are part of a $452
million project to repair and
upgrade Canadian Armed
Forces facilities.

The Courier News & Publishing
In Memoriam
Prime
Minister
Stephen Harper issued
the following statement
on the tragic death of a
Canadian Armed Forces
member in Iraq:
“It is with deep
sadness that I learned
that Sergeant Andrew
Joseph Doiron was killed
in a friendly fire incident
while
advising
and
assisting Iraqi Kurdish
forces in Iraq on March
6, 2015.
“On behalf of all
Canadians,
Laureen
and I offer our deepest
condolences to the family,
friends and colleagues
of Sergeant Doiron. We
also offer our prayers for
the speedy recovery of
the other three injured
members of the Canadian
Armed Forces.
“Canadians
are
rightly proud of the men
and women who serve in
our Armed Forces. We
support their families,
and we honour all those
who make the sacrifices
necessary to safeguard
our country and our
highest values.
“This tragic incident
reminds us of the very real
risks that our brave men
and women in uniform
assume on our behalf to
defend the freedoms that
we cherish.
“Almost daily we
see new evidence of the
violent threat posed
by the Islamic State of
Iraq and the Levant.
More than ever, it is
imperative that we, along
with the more than sixty
countries in the coalition,
continue the campaign
to halt ISIL’s spread and
reduce its capacity to
carry out terrorist attacks
abroad and here in
Canada.
“Our
Government
and the Canadian Armed
Forces take the duty
to protect Canadians
seriously. Part of that
duty requires us to stand
tall and shoulder our
Tuesday, March 10, 2015

All Work, No Play?
share of the burden in
the fight against ISIL.
We are proud to do our
part, and grateful to the
men and women to whom
it falls to carry out our
commitment to peace
and security.
“Sergeant
Doiron
lost his life in the line of
duty. We will honour and
remember his service to
Canada.”
My brother just
finished a long career as
a Winnipeg firefighter.
He’s a good guy with a
good sense of humour.
But don’t try to
joke with him about
firefighters
playing
checkers while waiting
for the alarm to sound,
or about being paid to
sleep on night shift.
“You’re not paying
us to sleep,” he will tell
you gently (but firmly).
“You’re paying us to
wake up. You’re paying
us to rush into your
burning house and save
you, your family, your
pets and your stuff,
while everyone else is
sleeping.”
The same principle
applies to the military.
Your job is to be ready,
though you don’t always
know
what
you’re
readying
yourselves
for.
Floods,
forest
fires, other disasters?
Security
operations?
Peacekeeping? War?
Morale is at least
half of the readiness
equation.
Morale
includes
unity
of
purpose and group
discipline, and that
involves
camaraderie
and a sense of belonging.
And goodness knows a
little fun doesn’t hurt:
in October RCAF CWO
Patrick Young challenged
the Air Force’s WCWOs
to put some fun back
into military life. 4 Wing’s
WCWO Bob Viel couldn’t
agree more.
“Serving together
should be fun,” he said,
“and somehow we’ve
overlooked that.”
I hope everybody has
a great time at Snow Fest
this week. Let’s enjoy the
daytime activities and
the evening events and
treat ourselves to some
good old-fashioned fun.

Snow: enjoy it while it lasts!
The Snow Fest Committee is thrilled to present this year’s edition of 4 Wing’s

plenty of fun and games leading into another beautiful Cold Lake weekend.
4 Wing, the Snow Fest Committee and the event sponsors – Canadian Natural
Resources and the Keystone Cup – invite you to celebrate the theme of “Make 4

And just maybe, once we’ve had a great time playing in the snow, it will all go
away.

Grappling with The Grist of Suicide
Will Hubbard,
Padre
Joseph said to his
love, “I can’t tell you how
to be free, Mathilde. I can’t
design your path for you
because then it would no
longer be your path.” (Irvin
Yalom, When Nietzsche
Wept)
In the last three
months I have been
trying to contemplate why
people kill themselves. It
is the most destructive
thing that we can do to
the self.
I have a friend
who killed himself last
November. I will not
tell you how, but I can
tell you that it is grim
and that he died alone.
In this life we know
of someone who has
contemplated this step.
We know them because
we are aware of the
famous personalities like
Robin Williams who died
in December.
How do we help? I
have no pat answer. I
could choose to blame
myself for not being there
for my friend. However,
in the light of day, I
cannot control his choice.
He made his own path. I
believe that his path was
not an easy one. It is not
rational and it is probably
dark and sad.
I could give you a

HOROSCOPES
Capricorn - December 22 - January 19
Watch it, Capricorn. Not everything is on the up and up. Join
in only if you are sure the cause is legitimate. A financial snafu
tests patience at work.
Aquarius - January 20 - February 18
Alarms sounding in your head, Aquarius? Listen to them. You’re
a generous soul, but some people cannot be helped. Step away.
A challenge is met.
Pisces - February 19 - March 20
Relax, Pisces. Yes, your to-do list is long, but if you are willing
to delegate, everything will get done one way or another. A book
answers a question.
Aries - March 21 - April 19
Hush, Aries. You’ve had your say. Time to let others have theirs.
Only then will you be able to make an informed decision. A
visitor drops by with a gift.
Taurus - April 20 - May 20
Amazing, Taurus. There is no other word to describe your
tactics recently. You’ve got the goods, and the right people are
noticing.
Gemini - May 21 - June 21
Youngsters strive to make a difference. Help them out, Gemini.
Your boss makes you an offer. Don’t take them up on it unless
you are certain it is what you want.
Cancer - June 22 - July 22
Feeling blue, Cancer? So are others. Put two and two heads
together and find something fun to do to boost your spirits. A
report receives rave reviews.
Leo - July 23 - August 22
Your opinion matters, Leo. Speak up. You have so much to
offer. A confrontation at home ruffles feathers but settles an
issue once and for all.
Virgo - August 23 - September 22
Your self-worth takes a real beating this week, Virgo, but not to
worry. That special someone will find a way to help you rebound
and recharge.
Libra - September 23 - October 22
Hesitate too long, Libra, and you will most certainly lose out.
Make up your mind now. A frank discussion among friends turns
ugly. Intervene!
Scorpio - October 23 - November 21
O, Scorpio, O Scorpio. You’ve loved and lost, but this time, it will
be different. Let go of your reservations and give that special
someone a chance.
Sagittarius - November 22 - December 21
Adventure is calling. Surely you hear it, don’t you, Sagittarius?

4 Wing Women
Win VB Silver,
Men Shut Out
The Courier
Cold Lake’s Women’s
volleyball team took
second place at the Prairie
Region championships
in Shilo last week, while
the men finished the
tournament without a
win.
Winnipeg took three
sets to one over Cold Lake
in the women’s final.
E d m o n t o n ,
meanwhile,
cruised
to gold in the men’s
tournament,
beating
Shilo three sets to none
in the final.
The 4 Wing men’s
team played some strong
sets but didn’t win
a match. Their coach,
Capt Will Hubbard, said
they lost some players
to 4 Wing’s ops tempo,
“but the players we had
did very well. We weren’t
losing by much, so
that tells us we were
competitive.”
Capt Jill Bristow
coached the 4 Wing
women’s
squad.
She
singled out Cpl Jan
O’Toole, who served
a six-point run in a
clutch situation and Pte
Tabitha Borisenko, whose
defensive play helped
keep the team in the
game.
Capt Bristow said the
team is disappointed not
to be going to Nationals,
but they give full marks
to Winnipeg for the win.
“Our team did really
well. We worked really
hard all year,” she said.

March is Nutrition
Month, and the focus is
on healthy eating at work.
Are there some easy
ways to help people eat
healthier at work?
Three little changes
may help get you on the
track to healthy eating in
the workplace.
Research showed one
way to promote healthy
eating at work is to have
fruit in the break room.
If the fruit was one of
the first things people
saw, they tended to select
it as a snack. If it was in
a nice bowl in a well-lit
place, even better! Even
in the cafeteria, the first
thing you should put
on your plate is a piece
of fruit. Brian Wansink
found that when people
were given a piece of
fruit at the beginning of
their lunch-line journey,
they continued to make
healthier food choices.
In contrast, if they
received a cookie as their
first item, they tended to
choose less healthy foods
for their whole meal.
Simply having a healthy
option at the beginning
of the line helped people
eat better.
Research also shows
that people eat healthier
when they have no candy
in or on their desk.
People with candies on
their desk weighed up to
fifteen pounds more than
those without. People
who had a clear candy
dish on their desk ate on
average nine candies, but
if the dish was on a table
six feet away they only ate
four pieces. If they had
the candy tucked away in of sleep per night can get
their drawer they tended your hormones working
to eat only three pieces for you rather than
of candy per day. A small causing you to be overly
change at work can make hungry the next day.

a big difference. Move the
and Food Services are
candy out of your office!
A
seemingly collaborating to offer you
unrelated action can two great opportunities
also help you eat better to learn more about
eating.
