CRA Hoaxers are still at it – Read this republished article from two years ago!

It’s around two years ago that I published the article below. It tells of my horror when I first received a hoax call claiming to be from the CRA. I am re-publishing it! Why?

So why did North Valley Credit Union decide to go solar?

Being in the financial service industry North Valley Credit Union is hardly a big user of electrical power. But, we learned of the benefits of installing a solar array from Broadview Co-op and began our own investigations. Approximately 34% of the mega-watts generated in Saskatchewan come from the burning of coal. We know that burning coal to generate electricity results in some pretty toxic chemicals being released into the atmosphere. Many forms of electrical generation are far less damaging to the environment such as hydro-electric, wind and solar. Two main considerations went into our decision to go down the road of generating our own electricity via a solar panel system. The first was…

No matter how many years you have behind you or ahead of you, you only ever experience life one moment at a time. But it’s so easy to forget this isn’t it? As human beings we seem to have the tendency to…

A bigger vision for world-class healthcare in the Esterhazy District

By Kenneth James Kerr

On September 11, 2017, the 17th Annual Esterhazy & District Charity Golf Classic will take place at the Esterhazy golf course. The event is the major fundraiser for new healthcare facilities in the area, and its continuation each year is due to both the determination of a dedicated group of people who organize it, and the incredible support of the many companies, local authorities, and individuals who donate or pledge towards the building of a new hospital in Esterhazy.

For those visionaries who keep the dream alive, the journey has been characterized by both victories and disappointments. Every successful fundraising event is a victory, as is every positive meeting with a government representative. However….
