Pigeons are a troublesome bird that are common
not only in Calgary, but cities around the world.
They produce an easily identified cooing sound.
Since pigeons are not a migratory species, they
cause year round conflict with humans when they
breed and roost in groups around urban dwellings.
Calgarians must often contend with high levels of
noise and unwanted accumulation of feces. Due
to strong instincts to nest in close proximity to
their site of birth, pigeons can be very difficult to
remove, especially if the basic necessities of food
and shelter are being met.
Preventing pigeons
Here are some steps you can take to keep pigeons
• Remove potential roosting areas by sealing
elevated openings and entrances. Install
appropriate-sized bird netting to take away
access to ledges and balconies.
• Install posts and wire on window ledges and
ridges to prevent pigeons from gaining a foot
• To prevent perching, apply gel to ledges
using a caulking gun. The gel makes the
surface unpleasant and unstable under the
bird’s feet.
• Eliminate all outdoor sources of food and
• Make sure garbage is stored in containers or
• Destroy nests and eggs.
If extermination is desired, enlist the services of a
pest control company.
The problem with pigeons
Pigeons aren’t just annoying – they can cause
costly damages as well. Storm gutters can be
blocked from the feathers, nesting materials and
droppings of pigeons, which may result in structural water damage. Additionally, metal and stone on
buildings may become damaged over the long run
from the corrosive uric acid component found in
pigeon droppings. The accumulation of droppings
may pose a safety risk, making ladders and ground
cover slippery. There is also a health risk associated with pigeons as they may contaminate food,
or transmit fungi, bacteria or ectoparasites in the

A Message from your Councillor Druh Farrell
Council Approves
Pedestrian Strategy
in the 1980s.
Unfortunately, the
to reduce speed
limits on residential
streets in Calgary
was not supported
by Council at this
On average, one pedestrian is injured in a collision
each day in Calgary. Many more injuries occur in
parking lots and often go unreported. The financial
cost to society from pedestrian deaths and injuries,
estimated at $120 million per year for Calgary
alone, is staggering. The impact to individuals and
families left to cope with the recovery, and sometimes a lifetime of disabilities, is immeasurable.
Every Calgarian is a
pedestrian. A pedestrian
is someone walking
(or rolling in a wheelchair) to school, from one
business meeting to another, to catch the train
or bus, or for an evening stroll. Ward 7 boasts a
higher proportion of people who walk than most
other areas of Calgary, partly due to its nearness
to downtown, but also because of its walkable
neighbourhoods, shopping streets, river pathways,
and access to schools and transit. The importance
of walking to Ward 7 residents is one of the many
reasons that I championed STEP FORWARD, as
well as other initiatives that support active travel.
As we implement this plan over the next decade,
you will see Calgary become a safer, more walkable, and more enjoyable city.
These financial, social, and emotional costs were
driving factors behind City Council’s decision to
unanimously support STEP FORWARD, our new
pedestrian strategy and safety action plan. I have
been striving to make Calgary a better place to
walk for many years and I am extremely proud of
this work. The strategy also goes beyond safety to
encourage more Calgarians to walk more often by
making it easy, accessible, and enjoyable.
We focused the plan into four areas with a list
of 50 actions for short, medium, and long term
• Safety - reduce collisions and increase the
feeling of personal safety.
• Plan and Design - remove barriers to
walking by improving connections and the
walking experience for people of all ages and

• Educate and Encourage - remind citizens
about shared responsibilities for road safety
and encourage walking for improved health,
recreation, and commuting.
Speed is a crucial factor in the severity and survival
rate of any collision, especially ones involving those
walking and cycling. Lower speeds save lives.
From Toronto to Boston to Edinburgh, cities around
the world are reducing speed limits on residential
streets for the sake of safety. Closer to home,

East Village Seniors Drama Club Does It Again
Those of us who enjoyed the plays put
on by seniors in the
former Golden Age
Club will regret not
being in the foyer at
City Hall last week.
Members of the
East Village Seniors
Drama Club, pictured
above, staged a
play at noon hour.
As has been the
case with previous
plays staged by
East Village seniors,
everybody who saw
it was delighted and
called for more.
(from left to right, Parin Pardhan, Leslie McFarland, Jean Woodhouse, Joan Ramsey, Mayor
Nenshi, Tony Mifsud in front, Cherie Ratte from Carya)
The East Village Seniors Drama Club told one of the
member’s stories. After all, what is drama, but a
medium for telling our stories? This drama had its
origins at a recent meeting of the members of the
Drama Club. At this meeting some of the seniors
of the East Village Seniors Drama Club told stories
from their past. The group chose one of these
stories, put it in the form of a play and staged it at
City Hall. The particular story told on this occasion
involved a group of young people who wanted a
wrestling facility. When appeals to the elders failed
to elicit a positive response, the young people built
their own. These young people enjoyed building
the facility almost as much as they enjoyed using
it. Unfortunately their enjoyment was short lived.
Someone was hurt and the same adults, who
were deaf to their requests for a facility, closed the
facility that the young people had worked so hard
to build. Sounds mundane? Not in the hands of
these seniors. The response of the audience was

Disaster Financial Assistance Arrangements
Last month, the nation looked on as wildfires raged
throughout northern Alberta. As events continued
to unfold, we watched the city of Fort McMurray
declared a state of emergency and evacuate all
residents. Our hearts went out to the community
as they left entire lives behind at a moment’s
notice, and touching stories of loss and heroism
trickled in through media reports.

Our government was quick to respond to the crisis.
We assured Albertans in the very early days that
we would stand with them during this difficult
time, and would support their efforts to rebuild. I
was in the airport heading back to Alberta when
I received the call from the Prime Minister asking
me to chair the federal government’s Ad Hoc Committee on Northern Alberta Wildfires. My cabinet
colleagues and I will coordinate across departments and take a whole of government approach
to recovery and rebuilding efforts in the weeks and
months ahead.
MEET, make friends and play euchre!
Since convening this committee, we have met to
discuss strategy, resources and the coordination
at all levels of government to assist our friends,
families, and neighbours to the north. We committed air support, military, and have matched the
generous donations of Canadians to the Red Cross.

you. But some foods can help the process, and
lemon is one of them. It stimulates the secretion of
bile, which helps remove waste from the body, and
triggers liver enzymes that help with the organ’s
cleansing process.
Some tips to make the morning beverage as healthy as possible:
1. Drink the water at room temperature.
Ice cold water might be more refreshing
(it even burns calories because your body
expends energy heating it up), but there are
some drawbacks: The extreme cold shocks
your stomach, making it slightly more difficult to absorb nutrients. If you’re concerned
about absorbing all the lemon’s vitamins and
phytochemicals, enjoy your water warm or at
room temperature.
Drinking water in the morning is important
because we tend to get dehydrated overnight.
Getting a good dose of water when you wake
helps get your body back on track, because a lot of
bodily functions don’t work properly when you’re
dehydrated. When it comes to beverages, water
is always the best choice, because it’s hydrating
and calorie-free. And adding a little lemon juice
only makes it better. The fresh flavour comes with
basically no calories or sugar, and a healthy hit of
vitamin C, folate, potassium and special flavonoids
with anti-cancer properties. Many people also
report clearer, brighter skin when they start their
day with lemon water.
2. Drink it through a straw.
The citric acid from the lemon juice can
soften enamel, damaging your teeth.
Drinking through a straw limits the exposure
to your teeth.
3. Add a few sprigs of mint.
Mint leaves give the drink a little boost of
refreshing flavour, and they help promote
healthy digestion.

Here are some very interesting historical facts you may,
or may not have known about
the Calgary Stampede
6. Guy Weadick, the main driving force behind
the show in its early years, led the Stampede's operations for 20 years.
7. He couldn't have done it without A.E. Cross,
A.J. MacLean, Pat Burns and George Lane,
the "Big Four" businessmen who contributed
$100,000 to the first show. Without it, it may
not have gone on.
Did You Know?
1. The very first show took place in September
of 1912 and lasted only six days.
8. The very first show generated approximately
$120,000 in economic benefit, making it a
great success!
2. Over 100,000 people attended the first
3. The first rodeo awarded $20,000 to competitors. According to Dave Manuel's inflation
calculator, that's worth $487,804.88 in 2014.
9. In 1923, the first free Stampede breakfast
was held at a campsite just outside the
Canadian Pacific Railway station close to
downtown Calgary. Jack Morton, a chuck
wagon driver, invited his loved ones and
visitors to enjoy free pancakes at the camp,
creating a tradition that still exists today!
4. In 1912, more than 2000 aboriginal peoples led the Calgary Stampede parade fully
clothed in ceremonial attire.
5. Women were allowed to compete in fancy
roping, bronco riding and trick riding in the
first Stampede. Today they can only compete
in barrel racing.
10.The same year (1923) was the first year
where chuck wagons were used in the
Calgary Stampede parade.
11. The greatest outdoor show on Earth
didn't become an annual event until 1923.
12. The Stampede has its own Queen and
princesses. In 1946, Patsy Rodgers became
the first Calgary Stampede Princess. In
modern time’s one queen, two princesses
and one aboriginal princess are appointed
to represent the show at various events
around the city.
13. By 1950 seven movie productions had
filmed scenes at the Calgary Stampede.
14. In 1959 the Big Four Building, named
after the "Big Four" businessmen who
helped fund the Stampede in its early
stages, officially opened.
Join us for Calgary’s biggest
Canada Day party! Free
family activities, live music
& lots more from 9 am – 4
pm. Easy access to lots of
other great events including
the East Village Street Fair!
15. The daily Grandstand Show began in
1964 that included the Calgary Kidettes,
a group of young performers who would
evolve into well-known and talented Young
Canadians of the Calgary Stampede. The
group still performs till this day at the
Grandstand Show.

With the large number of products sold for acne
it can be difficult to choose a product. Using
mild soap or “soapless” washes that are labeled
“non-comedogenic” (will not cause acne) are good
choices. Typically, acne face washes with salicylic
acid or benzoyl peroxide are used for mild cases of
acne, while gels and creams with benzoyl peroxide
are good options for mild to moderate acne.
• Aveeno Positively Radiant CC Cream Broad

Since, benzoyl peroxide can dry the skin, it is
important to use a moisturizer that is “oil-free”
or “noncomedogenic” to avoid breakouts. Using
a sunscreen or foundation with SPF 30 is also
recommended when using benzoyl-peroxide as it
can cause a sun sensitivity reaction.

Service Alberta – Registration
Expiry Month Chart
Albertans will no longer receive a letter in
the mail reminding them to renew their driver’s
license or vehicle registration. Beginning in April
2016, the province will begin sending out electronic reminders via email for registration, licence and
identification card renewals.
The province said the mailing of government
reminders is a dated practice and an unnecessary
expense in a digital age. The move is expected to
save taxpayers $3 million a year. “During these
tough economic times, it’s particularly important
for government to find smart ways to save taxpayers’ money,” Danielle Larivee, acting minister of
Service Alberta said in a news release.
The building design should address safety and
security within and outside. Units should respect
privacy, this includes sound proofing between
units. However, social interaction is important both
through programming & through providing places
for residents to gather.
Albertans with disabilities will continue to receive
reminders in the mail. Seniors over the age of 70
will continue to receive mailed reminders until April
1, 2017.

are in. However if we want to build trusting relationships that can lead to a stronger community
we must have an open heart to learning.
Learning. All of us have different thoughts and
feelings when we think about the topic of learning.
What are we learning about? In what setting is the
learning taking place? How long will it take? Who
will be involved? Why am I learning and what will
it do to help me to grow in life as a person? These
are just a few questions we may ask ourselves
when it comes to learning.
Please do not misunderstand me. We are not
simply consuming knowledge so that we can
morph into what we think we need to look like
or so that we can use the information to benefit
ourselves. We look to use our learning to better understand people and who they are as individuals as
well as a community. We have a “learners heart”
in our jobs, our relationships, as well as our faith.
We feel consistently having an open heart to learning doesn't necessarily mean we are constantly
learning and not engaging. It also helps to prevent
a judging heart that pushes people away and uses
the knowledge to help grow not only ourselves but
others around us.
For those of you who are students, you may currently have the mindset of getting as far away from
learning as possible and never have to think about
it again. For those of you in the professional world,
you may look at learning as a necessity to growing
in your profession no matter what it may be. For
those of you who live in a new area, you may look
at learning as a way of getting settled into your
new home and a necessity for survival in your new

are preconceived ideas and stereotypes about the

We find ourselves having similar preconceived
ideas about the community we are living in.

For my wife and I, we have come to Canada with
a “learners heart”. This is a phrase we adopted and clung on to as we not only move to a
different country, but also as we transition into
different stages of life. We have all experienced
many changes in life that involve opportunities for
learning. If Hanna and I come into this new stage
of life only using our previous knowledge and
preconceived ideas we will quickly find ourselves
unable to build relationships and grow in our new
community. It will also create a feeling of distrust
between us and the people of the community we
