The NDP government formally released their latest financial blueprint for the province on March 23. And much like the federal Tory government, it appears to be more than just a one year plan. This time the NDP projects they will run deficit budgets until 2014 (if they?re re-elected whenever the next provincial election is called which could be around October 2011). The provincial Conservatives had a recent favourable showing in an Angus Reid Poll that had the Tories at 44 per cent of potential voters as compared to 37 for the New Democrats. The Liberals trailed well back at 13 per cent. And the Greens were listed ...

In 1962, Rachel Carson galvanized a global environmental movement with her book Silent Spring. Before she wrote about the unexpected consequences of pesticides - including bioaccumulation of toxic molecules up the food chain - scientific innovations such as DDT dazzled us with their promise of greater control over the forces impinging on our lives. Ignorance We often look to technological fixes without acknowledging our ignorance about how the world works, and then we end up trying to correct the unexpected problems that result. When we began to use CFCs in large amounts, scientists had no idea they might affect the ozone layer. Salmon farms seemed like a good idea, but no one anticipated parasitic sea-lice outbreaks that would harm wild salmon. Scientists find clever ways to tease out information y Robert Roach or The Valley Leader We all know that the world s a harsh place. Earthquakes, starving hildren and broken dreams re all too common. Money is tight as we merge from the global r ...

08 The Valley Leader ? Friday, April 02, 2010 Pembina Valley Hawks win AAA championship It took double overtime but the PV Hawks soared to the Manitoba AAA Midget Hockey Championship By Donald McLeod The Valley Leader The Pembina Valley Hawks scored a 4-3 double overtime win over the Eastman Selects Sunday to win the Manitoba AAA Midget Hockey League 2009-10 championship. The Hawks got a goal from Pilot Mound?s Brett Pinkerton eight seconds into the second overtime period to edge the Selects and win the title for just the second time in franchise history and the first since 1997. On the game-winning play, the puck went to Pinkerton, who skated across the blueline and sent what appeared to be a rising shot at the net. It fooled Eastman netminder Isaiah Plett, and the Hawks poured off their bench to mob Pinkerton along the side boards, while the Selects dejectedly went to their bench. Forced OT Morden?s Michael Sofillas sent the game into overtime with his goal in the final minute of reg ...

McCutcheon competes at senior curling championships By Valley Leader Staff Shawn McCutcheon and the rest of Team Manitoba were left out of the playoff round last weekend at the World Financial Group Canadian Senior Men?s Curling Championship at the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club. McCutcheon and teammates (skip) Rob Ramage, Colin David got the first of the game in the first period to give the Selects a 1-0 lead. After Pinkerton?s first goal early in the second, there was no further scoring in that period but lots of good quality chances. It looked as if the next goal might be the winner. That next goal came at 9:10 of the third when Brent Wold got control of the puck along the boards behind the Hawks? net and swung out front and tucked the puck just inside the post low to Peters? stick side. Power play goal The Hawks got a powerplay goal with just under four minutes left in the third, as Mullin pushed in a rebound from a scramble in front of Plett, and again the teams were even. With just ov ...
