Golden Hills students returned August 28, while students at St. Anthony’s were back in class on August 27. Back to school is an important time for drivers to be aware of school busses as well as young pedestrian traffic.

Federal election imminent

No matter how you slice it, predictions about a fall election are ringing more true by each dispatch from Ottawa.
Prime Minister Steven Harper has publicly said he wants to go to the polls. Meetings with three opposition party leaders resulted in little common ground to prop up the minority government much longer. It appears little can stop Canadians from heading to the polls for the third time in four years.
“Stephane Dion says his plans are to defeat us as soon as we get back to the House,” said Crowfoot MP Kevin Sorenson. “Knowing the Prime Minister, he may not let Dion have his way.”
