Merrifield announced more than $133,000 in funding for Rotary Park. The funding comes from the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund (CIIF) and will go towards the extension of the park's paved trail system, which runs behind Rotary Park and will go close to the Whitecourt Golf and Country Club. "It's actually a really scenic route and we'll probably have to put a couple of little bridges in there, but it's a part of the river that most people don't see because most people don't go back there and it's really beautiful," Mayor Trevor Thain said. Merrifield said Rotary Park has been a great benefit for the community. "It's great to see Rotary Park be developed," Merrifield said, mentioning the unique aspect of the park and that bet ...

20 The Whitecourt Star * Wednesday, April 17, 2013 20 The Whitecourt Star * Wednesday, April 17, 2013 Letter to the Editor MP Rob Merrifield is becoming quite a jokester. His report about "Connecting Canadians with available jobs" takes the side of business, as usual. When there is a labour surplus, it is OK for businesses to reduce wages and benefits.

As more Canadian companies are being bought up by foreigners, Canadian workers are seeing their wages and benefits cut, especially when the new owners are United States corporations. He also "announced that the First Nations Financial Transparency Act has received Royal Ass ...
