    MLA DeLong wishes to inform you about an upcoming Brain Health Symposium that will provide information to Albertans about maintaining their brain health throughout their lifetime. The symposium is being offered to all interested Albertans free of charge.

     

    This symposium is part of the Office of the Public Guardian’s Promoting Brain Health Initiative, which helps Albertans adopt a lifelong proactive approach to maintaining their self-determination and autonomy. Current research shows that it is possible for people to improve their brain health and thereby postpone cognitive decline and, in certain circumstances, recover from brain ailments or brain injury.

     

    The keynote speakers presenting at the symposium are two leading Canadian experts: Dr. Bryan Kolb, one of Canada's most prominent neuropsychologists, a professor at the University of Lethbridge, and co-author of the 1980 book that is said to have defined the field of neuropsychology: Fundamentals of Human Neuropsychology; and Dr. Max Cynader, Director of the Brain Research Centre at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Canada Research Chair in Brain Development at UBC, and professor of ophthalmology.  Also presenting at the symposium will be local experts Dr. Lee Coyne, on Lifestyle Choices – the importance of nutrition and exercise; and Mr. Brian Lee, on Personal Wellness for a Lifetime. The Brain Health Symposium is presented by the Government of Alberta through the Office of the Public Guardian. The symposium is free, but attendees are asked to RSVP.

    Water is one of Alberta’s most valuable resources. It touches every aspect of our lives, where we live, work, and play.

     

    Albertans are passionate about water and want to know that it’s being managed and protected, now and for the future.

     

    That’s why I want to talk about water. Beginning February 19th the government will hold facilitated workshops in 20 communities across the province. These three hour workshops are an opportunity for government and Albertans to come together to explore ideas about water issues and priorities.

    I’m inviting my constituents to share their thoughts and provide feedback on four broad topics – topics that Albertans have told us are important to them:

    • Healthy lakes;
    • Hydraulic fracturing;
    • Drinking water and wastewater; and
    • Water management.

    Although the focus of the water conversation is on these four topics, we want to hear all sides of the water conversation; participants are welcome to raise any water-related concern they may have during the conversation. We will be clear however, that Alberta’s water is not for sale and will never be for sale to other jurisdictions.

     

    I encourage all Albertans to share their thoughts about water by:

    • Attending a community session;
    • Completing a survey online, available February 11 to 29; or
    • Providing feedback to me either by phoning me, sending me an email or letter.

    Alberta’s water belongs to all Albertans – how it’s managed for the future is vitally important to us all. Please join the conversation about Alberta’s water resources by visiting www.waterconversation.alberta.com.

    CALGARY undefined It’s hallowed ground for pro-wrestling fans and heritage buffs alike, the Hart mansion in southwest Calgary undefined but soon estate homes will be erected on the surrounding lawn.

     

    After several larger development schemes failed in recent years, on Monday council approved nine homes with basement suites on the site of the Patterson Heights house, where Stu Hart famously trained his sons and other wrestling stars.

     

    Neighbours had raised protests over past proposals that would have put 14 to 22 homes on the nearly one-hectare property.

     

    This proposal won some support from others on Patina Place S.W. However, they protested the move to allow secondary suites.

     

    “I think what we have is a situation where the community has sort of begrudgingly agreed undefined but agreed undefined to some development around this site to help defray the costs of renovating the Hart house itself,” Mayor Naheed Nenshi said.

     

    The 1905 home has been designated a municipal heritage site, which preserves the home rather than the entire property. It had been put on the market for $5 million by Teatro restaurant owner Dario Berloni in 2010, but he still owns it.

     

    Before the Hart wresting clan owned the property, the mansion was owned by Judge Henry Patterson. It was originally built more than a century ago by Edward Crandell, a prominent businessman and city alderman.

    On October 8, 2012 the Sirocco bus terminal will close and some bus routes in the area will be re-routed to 69 Street S.W.  The closure will allow the Sirocco Park and Ride to be restored and expanded in preparation for the opening of the West LRT. 

    During this time, limited parking will still be available at Sirocco Park and Ride.  Limited parking will also be available at the 69 Street Park and Ride.  Transit customers are encouraged to walk, bike or take a bus to the 69 Street bus terminal.

     

    The bus routes that will be affected include routes 301, 401, 439, 453 and 456. 

    There will be no changes to routes 2, 53, 67 and 438.  New route maps are available on calgarytransit.com/westlrt

     

    Rider’s Guide brochures are also available that contain all of the route changes and parking maps.  The Rider’s Guides will be available on the local buses, handed out at Sirocco Park and Ride and available on the Calgary Transit website.   I have attached an electronic version.

     

    These new bus routes will be in effect until the West LRT opens.
