Four Thompson city council members calling on city admin to return to committee meetings as investigations into workplace misconduct are underway

A press release signed by half of the Thompson city council is imploring City of Thompson administration to “immediately return to the committee tables, resume direct communication and information sharing with council and the public”.

 

The statement was signed by Councillors Jeff Fountain, Duncan Wong, Les Ellsworth, and Earl Colbourne.

 

The release claims a number of issues have cropped up that have resulted in what’s being described as a “complete breakdown” in communication and cooperation between administration and council, with allegations of harassment and disrespectful conduct directed at some councillors by admin staff.

 

The councillors state they don’t believe disagreements and tough questions constitute harassment or disrespect, and that they shouldn’t be expected to “blindly accept the whims of administration and a few influential council members”.

 

When asked for comment, the city says council is regularly briefed and connected to administration by the city manager, who’s the council’s sole direct employee.

 

It adds committee meetings had been on hold as mayor and council considered a structure change from multiple standing committees to a “committee of the whole” format, and council will provide direction to admin to resume committee meetings.

 

The city says there are currently a number of active workplace misconduct investigations, however HR matters are confidential and can’t be further commented on.

City council approve motion to look into appeals and complaints system for water billing inconsistencies

A special regular meeting of council was held yesterday pertaining to concerns some councillors brought forward to city administration on utilities.

 

Councillors reported that they’ve had residents and business owners reach out to them regarding missing meters, areas not metering, and inconsistencies on water bills.

 

One of the questions addressed in the presentation was whether there was a system in place to appeal billing issues.

 

CAO Anthony McInnis states while there currently isn’t a formal process for appeals as per city bylaws, they can technically be made to council or to the Public Utilities Board.

 

The meeting ended with city council voting in favour of a motion to get the city to look into establishing a complaints and appeals system where people can bring utility billing issues forward.

Manitoba Liberals not running candidate in Thompson by-election, urges PCs to do the same

A statement from the Manitoba Liberals explains the party will be standing down in the upcoming Thompson by-election.

 

Leader Dougald Lamont says Danielle Adams, the former NDP MLA who died in a vehicle collision last month, would have held her seat until the next general election in 2023.

 

Lamont states given the tragic circumstances of Adam’ passing, the party believes this is “the right and honourable thing to do”.

 

He goes on to encourage the Progressive Conservatives to consider doing the same.

 

Thompson is one of two constituencies pending a by-election, the other being Fort Whyte in Winnipeg which was left vacant after former Premier Brian Pallister resigned last year.

 

A date for the by-election has yet to be announced.

Local church collecting donations of medical supplies to take on trip to Cuba in March

The Thompson Pentecostal Assembly is looking to make a second trip down to Cuba to assist locals impacted by food insecurity and lack of medical supplies.

 

Pastor Mel Versluis explains the trip was originally planned for March of 2020, but that was hampered by the COVID-19 shutdowns across the globe.

 

Versluis says the team of five people are looking to help expand on the projects they began working on during their first trip in 2019.

 

That includes building an expansion for a chicken farm and making a concrete pond to begin raising fish.

 

He adds the team will be taking donations of medical supplies with them on the trip such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, vitamins, cold medication, band aids, and first aid ointment.

 

Donations can be dropped off at the church on 126 Goldeye Crescent.

MKO Concerned About Impact of Rising COVID-19 Cases in Northern Manitoba First Nations

Treaty Five Territory, Thompson, MB – Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak (MKO) Inc. is issuing a statement on COVID-19 in Northern Manitoba.

 

“A growing number of MKO First Nations are being impacted by rising rates of COVID-19,” said Grand Chief Garrison Settee. “As we can see from high numbers right across the Province of Manitoba, the new Omicron variant is having a major impact on Manitoba residents. I am concerned about rising COVID cases in Northern Manitoba and will meet with MKO leaders on January 7 to discuss next steps in the ongoing battle against COVID-19.”

 

The response to COVID-19 is evolving rapidly in the province. As of January 5, 2022, the province is shifting to providing Rapid Antigen Tests for Manitoba residents having COVID-19 symptoms who are ages 5 and older.

 

Results from rapid tests are not being reported in updates from the province. Public health officials announced that people who test positive on Rapid Antigen Tests are not required to do a PCR test (lab confirmation). There is a significant backlog in receiving test results from COVID-19 swabs done at testing sites.

 

Indigenous Services Canada has shared it is in the process of shipping 100 kits of rapid tests to each First Nation in Manitoba this week. MKO does not have information of how many rapid tests are being sent to each MKO First Nation.

 

At least 10 MKO First Nations have put travel restrictions and/or lock downs in place, as follows:

  • Barren Lands First Nation (Brochet)
  • Bunibonibee Cree Nation (Oxford House)
  • God’s Lake First Nation (God’s Lake Narrows)
  • Northlands First Nation (Lac Brochet)
  • Manto Sipi Cree Nation (God's River)
  • Marcel Colomb First Nation (Lynn Lake)
  • Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation (Nelson House)
  • Pimicikamak Cree Nation (Cross Lake)
  • Sayisi Dene Denesuline Nation (Tadoule Lake)
  • Tataskweyak Cree Nation (Split Lake)

 

Several MKO First Nations have also declared a state of emergency for their communities as case numbers rise.

 

“The Omicron variant has been making its way through Manitoba in an unprecedented way,” shared Grand Chief Settee. “Our leaders are working tirelessly to contain the spread of COVID-19 and ensure essential services are available to community members. I urge MKO citizens to continue to do their part to stop the transmission of COVID-19 by limiting contacts, reducing non-essential travel, and by getting vaccinated. I especially encourage MKO citizens to join me in getting their COVID-19 booster when they are eligible to receive it. Data shows that if you get the virus, you will face less severe outcomes if you have received your third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.”

 

MKO is concerned about the impact of COVID-19 on Manitoba’s health care system, including a reduction of health services, backlog in surgeries and diagnostic services, and the closures of health care facilities such as the recent closures in Leaf Rapids and Gillam.

 

“As First Nations see a surge in COVID-19 cases, MKO continues to advocate for surge support,” said Grand Chief Settee. “We know surge supports are not as robust as they were in earlier waves. It is important for MKO to ensure our communities have access to supports, however, we understand this may be a significant challenge with an overwhelmed health care system.”

 

MKO has been working with other First Nation organizations along with provincial and federal partners to ensure communities have access to necessary resources.

 

Protocols are changing fast. MKO First Nations are working to adapt. Many First Nations have implemented measures that go beyond public health orders, by implementing curfews, reducing business hours, and moving to remote work to contain the spread of COVID-19.

 

Some First Nations have also received the Monoclonal Antibody treatment to administer to people who are over the age of 18 and have not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This is a treatment option for individuals who have underlying health conditions.

TCN declares state of emergency due to "alarming rapid increase" of COVID-19 cases

A northern First Nation has called a state of emergency as cases of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 continues to spike across the province.

 

Tataskweyak Cree Nation Chief Doreen Spence explains in a press release the “alarming rapid increase” of new positive COVID-19 cases in the community leaves them unprepared, as they lack adequate supplies, facilities, and staff to address the situation.

 

Spence says they’re requesting help in food security, perimeter security, and funding for staff.

 

She noted a recent fire in TCN ravaged what remained of their stock of PPE and cleaning supplies.

 

Spence states a request for rapid surge capacity support has also been put in.

Paint Lake Volunteer Fire Department receive $10, 000 grant for new communication gear

An electronics company has awarded the Paint Lake Volunteer Fire Department with ten thousand dollars in communications products.

UCN extends winter break, classes to resume Jan. 10 due to spread of Omicron variant

University College of the North announced in a press release that classes have been delayed until Jan. 10.

 

The institiution states it will also adopt remote delivery of most courses. UCN adds while some courses that demand face-to-face learning will continue with in-person classes, many others will be done remotely.

 

The decision was made due to the spike in Omicrom variant cases of COVID-19.

Local Relay for Life committee looking for volunteers to make upcoming event possible

The Canadian Cancer Society is hoping to secure enough volunteers so that the Relay for Life event can go ahead.

 

In a letter to media, spokesperson Jill McClurg says the local committee is in desperate need for the 2022 campaign, as they’ve been experiencing challenges with recruitment efforts and aren’t seeing much uptake.

 

McClurg adds they’re at risk of the event not going forward if they don’t have enough volunteers.

 

Numerous positions are vacant including leadership and event logistics, community outreach and communications, as well as registration and finance.

 

Those interested in learning more can email relay@cancer.ca or call committee member Jeff Lindstrom at 204-778-5380.

NRHA announce health care facilities in Leaf Rapids and Gillam are temporarily closed due to ongoing staffing issues

With both the Leaf Rapids Health Centre and Gillam Hospital closed temporarily until next month, MP Niki Ashton is urging the federal government to provide emergency medical services in the community in the mean time.

 

The Northern Health Region announced both facilities are closed due to ongoing, persistent staffing issues. During the closure, all the other clinical care or support will be given through Thompson or Lynn Lake.

 

In a letter the Indigenous Services Minister, Ashton says the facilities in the towns provide medical services to people from neighbouring communities, including many Indigenous patients.

 

She states all options must be considered, including bringing in medical personnel from the Canadian Armed Forces.

 

The Gillam Hospital is slated to reopen January 5th, while Leaf Rapids Health Centre is expected to reopen on January 10th.

RCMP reminds motorists to drive sober over the holidays

With Christmas right around the corner, the Manitoba RCMP is urging motorists to plan ahead and avoid driving while impaired this holiday season.

 

Mounties state in the first eleven months of this year, 73 people lost their lives in 63 vehicle collisions on Manitoba roadways under RCMP jurisdiction. A press release adds alcohol is suspected to be a factor in 21 of the collisions.

 

Aside from fatalities and injuries, Thompson RCMP Constable Sandy Deibert explains the repercussions of driving while under the influence of alcohol and drugs include a criminal code investigation where the the driver's licence would be suspended, their vehicle impounded, and they would have to pay a large fine.

 

Deibert urges people to have rides lined up before they go to parties and celebrations, avoid alcohol and drugs if you're a designated driver, and make sure others don't leave a party impaired without a ride.

NRHA reminds northerners to do what they can to reduce the spread of COVID-19 over the holidays

A medical officer of health with the Northern Health Region shared an update on how the COVID-19 pediatric vaccine campaign has been going in the north.

 

Doctor William Libich has the details.

 

“So far, interest in the vaccine has been very strong as parents and caregivers realize how important it is to get their children immunized and uptake of the vaccine is increasing quickly. Throughout the province, over 42% of children between 5 and 11 had received the first dose and a few have even received the second dose. In the North, our numbers are a little lower than the provincial average. Not by much, we’re about 40%. Winnipeg’s rate is about 48% but numbers all across Manitoba and Canada are rising fast.”

 

Libich reassures parents and caregivers unsure about getting their children vaccinated that there is a significant amount of real-world experience that the pediatric shot is safe.

 

He adds it’s important that everyone eligible to get the shot and booster do so as we head into Christmas and the New Year.

Vale donates $250, 000 for public safety initiatives

Vale Canada recently made a donation of 250, 000 dollars to the Community Wellness and Public Safety Advisory Committee.

 

The funding will be used to set up a second Shelter-In-Place Program, or SHIPP, to provide a more pandemic-friendly space to vulnerable and homeless residents in the community while reducing density at facilities like the Thompson Homeless Shelter.

 

The new SHIPP campus will be located at the Polaris 5 building on Princeton Drive, where the Thompson Sobering Centre will be.

 

The city says the new shelter space is a quick way to use the Polaris building in a meaningful way as the committee works towards a more complete sobering centre.

 

The first campus was launched in April 2020 at the local YWCA, which housed 25 of Thompson’s most at-risk houseless residents to protect vulnerable people and help control the spread of COVID-19 among those living outdoors.

MKO reaches goal of helping First Nations citizens apply for status cards

MKO is looking to continue to help First Nations citizens apply for secure status cards in the New Year.

 

This comes as the organization announced in a news release that it has reached its goal of helping 25 hundred northern residents apply for identification in 2021.

 

The service, which launched in late January, is offered in partnership with Indigenous Services Canada as a way to ensure northerners have improved access in obtaining their Treaty status if they don’t have the means to travel to Winnipeg to get an appointment.

 

In addition to taking appointments at MKO’s office in Thompson, Senior Intake Clerk Gina Spence says their team has travelled to Norway House, Tataskweyak Cree Nation, and Winnipeg to hold pop-up clinics.

 

Spence adds they also held an event specifically for youth in Thompson.

 

MKO says there’s no cost to access this service, and those interested in booking an appointment can do so by calling 204-677-1700 or toll-free at 1-800-442-0488.

Community Christmas Dinner returns this year with COVID-friendly twist

Terri-Lynn Turton, one of the organizers of the dinner, explains the significance of this staple event in the community.

 

“It’s important to have these dinners because it does bring the community together. Unfortunately we still can’t all be together but at least we can have full bellies and spread some holiday cheer. This year, we can at least eat in the homes with other people so come grab a few dinners and eat with your friends.”

 

Organizers are accepting both food and monetary donations, and they can be dropped off at A1 Financing and Loans by Thursday.

Mayor Colleen Smook cautions community about rising COVID-19 cases

Mayor Colleen Smook is cautioning Thompsonites to be vigilant this holiday season as COVID-19 cases continue to rise across the country.

 

Smook says it’s especially important that people follow the public health orders in place when travelling and gathering over the next few weeks as the Omicron variant surges through the country.

 

This comes as Manitoba’s top doctor released preliminary modelling, which indicates the province could see one-thousand COVID cases per day by early January if people aren’t careful.

 

The province is urging people to get vaccinated against the virus before widespread community transmission occurs.

 

As of yesterday, there are 353 active COVID cases in the Northern Health Region, however there is only one in the Thompson/Mystery Lake District.

NRHA encourages residents to be kind to themselves this holiday season

While the holiday season can be a joyous time for many, it can also be stressful and overwhelming.

 

That’s why the Northern Health Region is reminding residents to be kind to themselves and focus on their wellbeing at this time of year.

 

Shellie Verville, the mental health promotions coordinator with the organization explains.

 

“We’re kind of in the season of the winter blues so we are already going into the holiday season possibly feeling a little bit tired or maybe even a little sad. There are also financial pressures that we experience since the holidays can be really expensive buying gifts for friends and family. It can leave families in a bit of debt even after the holidays. We also have times when we are with people that we might have strained relationships with. We might not see eye to eye with different family members so that can be an issue over the holidays. During this time with COVID-19 going on, we may not be with the people that we love during the holiday season like we have in the past.”

 

Verville says some ways people can reduce their stress during the holidays include getting enough sleep, eating healthy, getting exercise, thinking positive, and not being afraid to ask for or accept help.

School Divisions to take part in program to add Indigenous Education to Provincial Curriculum

The School District of Mystery Lake, the Flin Flon School Division, and the Frontier School Division are among the 33 school divisions taking part in a pilot program revolving around Indigenous education.

 

The provincial government says the pilot will support engagement with Elders and knowledge keepers to promote Indigenous history, culture, traditional values, contemporary lifestyles, and traditional knowledge in the provincial curriculum.

 

Dana Rudy, the Deputy Minister of Education, explains Thompson was among the communities chosen to take part in the pilot due to the large presence of land-based education and Elder and knowledge keepers in the district.

 

Rudy adds the pilot would further build upon the strengths of what’s already offered in the pilot schools and would allow the province to learn more about how to deliver authentic Indigenous education in other communities in Manitoba.

 

Three schools in the School District of Mystery Lake will take part in the pilot: Wapanohk Community School, Ecole Riverside, and Rd Parker Collegiate.

 

The pilot will begin on January 17th and will wrap up March 30th

Additional seats being added for UCN'S Diploma in Practical Nursing Program

The provincial government is investing in 37 additional nurse training seats for University College of the North’s three campuses.

 

The funding is for UCN’s Diploma in Practical Nursing program, which is offered in Thompson, Flin Flon, and Swan River.

 

The president and vice-chancellor of the institution Doug Lauvstad states this means that intake will double at the Thompson campus, meaning they can take 20 students into the program every year instead of every two years.

 

He adds the announcement helps address the staffing issues facing the northern health care system.

 

“The North is challenged in terms of recruitment and retention of professionals, particularly health professionals. We all know that if you teach people in the North with an institution that’s in the North for jobs in the North, they will stay in the North.”

 

The investment is worth up to 4.3 million dollars.

NDP Caucus acknowledges Danielle Adams' dedication to her Constituency

It is with a heavy heart we write this article. On December 9, Thompson MLA Danielle Adams passed away in a car accident. She leaves behind her loving husband Bill and two children, her family and friends. We share in the sorrow of this tragedy.  

Danielle was a dedicated MLA for all her constituents. She was a fierce advocate for many causes and always made northern Manitobans her priority. She was a caring mother and partner, and she wore her heart on her sleeve.

Her passing is heartbreaking.

Elected in 2019, Danielle served as the NDP Critic for Child Care, Housing, Disability and Poverty Matters. Prior to entering politics, she served on the board of Thompson Children’s World Daycare which helped inform her commitment to advocating on behalf of early childcare educators, parents and families in the Legislature. She continuously pushed for quality childcare that was affordable and accessible across the province.

Danielle called things like she saw them. She fought hard for parents and against increasing nursery fees, frozen funding for centres or increased privatization. She worked hard to hold government accountable. Danielle wasn’t afraid to think big, and she worked with her colleagues to imagine and plan for an accessible childcare system that worked for many thousands of Manitobans that have been left behind.

She always wanted to recognize the important work being done by community members and organizations in Thompson and surrounding communities. She cared about their work, from the Boys and Girls Club, to the YWCA and Nanatowiho Wikamik. Danielle looked to build others up, especially those who worked so hard with people who need our help the most. Danielle understood that everyone mattered. She fought hard for a more equal society.

She advocated for Mystery Lake School Division support staff and for the government to address nursing vacancies in Thompson and across the north. And during the pandemic she fought for the north to have equitable access to vaccines and testing capacity as well as paid sick leave to keep people safe.

Danielle was a lifelong New Democrat who worked tirelessly for equal access to quality health care, education and good jobs in Manitoba’s northern communities. Before and after her election, Danielle was a trustworthy listener and community advocate for those in Thompson and beyond.

Our movement and Danielle’s colleagues will miss her deeply. Our NDP team, along with other members of the legislature, held a ceremony in her honour at the Manitoba Legislature on December 13 where a Manitoba flag, flowers and her photo was place on her seat. We will honour her life and legacy by continuing to fight for the things Danielle stood for.

Our thoughts are with her husband Bill, her two sons, her family and the entire community of Thompson constituency during this difficult time.

With Danielle’s passing, the Thompson Constituency office will be closed. If you or someone in the community need any assistance please reach out to our NDP Caucus office at (204) 945-3710 or email at info@yourmanitoba.ca. We are here to provide support and assistance.

Ice Thickness Advisory

With both Manitoba Public Insurance and Lifesaving Society Manitoba putting out an ice thickness advisory earlier this month, the society’s water safety coordinator spoke to Arctic Radio about it.

 

Doctor Christopher Love stressed the importance of checking ice thickness before heading out onto a frozen body of water, as dozens of vehicles break through thin ice around this time of year.

 

Love says while no ice is without some risk, there are optimal ice conditions people should look out for.

 

"We would love to see what is considered a calm, multi day, consistent freeze in order to give you good ice to go out on. So that usually means two or three days, consistently cold temperatures below minus ten with no breeze or snow. Those give you great ice formation conditions. Once that’s occurred, you’ve got what we would call new, clear, hard ice. It’s frozen solid, there aren’t many air bubbles and it’s very good for bearing weight."

 

Love adds people going out on frozen waterways should have a floatation device on them, never go out alone, and make sure to let someone know where you’re going and when you plan to be back.

Thompson MLA Danielle Adams dead following car crash

WINNIPEG - The NDP member of the Manitoba legislature for Thompson has died.

The party says in a release that Danielle Adams died Thursday in a car accident near the city. The Manitoba RCMP stated in a news release that a two-vehicle collision occurred on Highway 6 roughly 50 kilometres south of Ponton.

Wabowden RCMP say the initial investigation determines Adams' SUV heading southbound hit a semi-truck travelling north.

The semi-truck driver, a 54-year-old man from the RM of Alexander, was not physically injured.

The RCMP state road conditions were poor at the time. Additionally, speed and alcohol don't appear to be factors in the collision.

NDP Leader Wab Kinew says her death is heartbreaking and she will be remembered as a young, caring mother who wore her heart on her sleeve.

Adams was first elected in 2019 and served as the party's critic for child care, housing, disability and poverty matters.

The party says she was particularly committed to advocating on behalf of the child-care sector and parents, pushing for child-care that was affordable, accessible and reliable across the province.

Adams is survived by her two young boys and her husband. She was 39-years-old.

ParticipACTION gives Canadian adults low grades on their year-end physical activity report card

With ParticipACTION’s report card revealing sedentary behaviours remain high among Canadian adults, a researcher involved in the report spoke to Arctic Radio to share how people can increase their physical activity.

 

Doctor Leigh Vanderloo explains while the country overall got an F on sedentary behaviours and active transportation, low levels of physical activity tend to increase in eastern Canada when compared to the west, with Manitoba in the middle of the spectrum.

 

Vanderloo adds the COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t helped with increasing physical activity, with remote work leaving many without an active commute along with closures of fitness centres and recreational activities.

 

She states those who have fallen off from regular physical activity can slowing reintroduce it back into their routines by doing activities that have a low barrier to entry such as walking, jogging, and running. Vanderloo explains increasing the time, distance, and intensity as time goes on can be beneficial in people continuously challenging themselves without having to buy additional equipment.

 

Hear the full interview with Vanderloo on Thompson Today at 12:40 and 5:10 for more information.
