  • RED DEER, March 12, 2018 – Adèle Poratto, a local businesswomen and French educator, has announced she will be running for the nomination race of the United Conservative Party of Alberta for the constituency of Red Deer-South.

    “I am running to bring the voice of the people in my riding to the provincial legislature,” says Poratto, “I am committed to helping Alberta reach its potential through transparent political leadership with a servant heart.”

    Poratto has a strong lineage of political involvement, from working  with her Italian father who was president of the Progressive Party in Ontario to getting involved in her community for 22 years serving on numerous boards in Red Deer and Central Alberta.

    Fluent in both official languages, Poratto has a strong sense of patriotism and service. She has filled vital roles in many professional boards and volunteer organizations, such as the District and local Rotary Clubs, the 2019 Canada Winter Games Bid Committee, Community Housing Advisory Board and Cabinet for the United Way. Poratto was recently named Chair of the Black Tie Bingo Committee for Rotary Club of Red Deer 2018.

    “Much of the frustration of Albertans in the current government comes from a lack of transparency and legislation that contradicts the clear desires of the people,” says Poratto, “I am eager to embark on the hard road to real change, drafting legislation that benefits the lives of every Albertan and seeing it through to passing.”

    Poratto believes the function and role of government is bringing together all people, regardless of race, gender or creed. She seeks to make a deep impact for current and future generations by building community through partnership, commitment and community service.

  • Red Deer, Alberta, June 15, 2018: The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is thrilled to announce that the next phase in planning for its new Centre of Excellence on Red Deer College’s main campus is now underway.

    On Thursday, June 14, RDC’s Board of Governors approved a resolution to move forward to request Government of Alberta approval through an Order in Council to lease a portion of land on the RDC campus to the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre. This request builds on the memorandum of understanding that CACAC and RDC entered into earlier this year, and it represents the partners’ commitment to work together to explore options that will meet the needs of Central Albertans.

    Mark Jones, Chief Executive Officer of the CACAC, together with the centre’s staff and service partners, couldn’t be more pleased with this announcement. “Supporters of the centre have worked tirelessly since the formation of the coalition group who were determined to help with the desperate need for child advocacy in Central Alberta. We are collectively changing the way Central Alberta responds to child abuse. We opened in our temporary facility November 2017, and the statistics have been staggering of how many cases have been processed. The need for our planned Centre of Excellence is proven, and we are going to be working hard to raise the funds to bring it to fruition. These children need us, the community needs us, and the future of our society depends on it.”

    The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is a not for profit organization, governed by a board of directors that works in an integrative partnership with the Central Region Child and Family Services, Alberta Health Services, Alberta Justice, Alberta Education, the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre, and the RCMP to better service children, youth and families impacted by sexual abuse and the most serious/complex cases of physical abuse and neglect.

    The centre has professionals onsite dealing with the criminal, child protection, medical and psychological needs of child victims and their families. Onsite professionals include police officers, physicians, nurses, social workers, psychologists, and crown prosecutors with the common goals of: improved timeliness in the coordinated assessment and investigation of child abuse cases; increased access to support and therapeutic resources for the child and their family; enhanced collaboration among partners; more efficient and effective use of resources; increased knowledge and awareness of child abuse in the community.

    Working collaboratively, we achieve greater results than any partner could on their own. It blends investigation, treatment, prevention, education and research with expertise to provide an integrated practice approach: wrapping around children and always “working in the best interests of the child”.

  • Banff Detachment RCMP members suffer assaults while responding to disturbance

    Banff, Alberta – On June 8, three RCMP officers suffered injuries while trying to effect the arrest of a 34-year-old Banff resident.  The officers are recovering and the male is facing charges.

    At 5:38 p.m., the RCMP responded to a call for assistance at an apartment residence where a male was believed to be very intoxicated, combative and residents were requesting his removal.  While trying to effect the arrest of this male, he assaulted the three responding members.  The male jumped off a balcony, fled a short distance and was apprehended promptly after two more RCMP members arrived to assist. EMS provided assistance on scene as well.

    The male was taken to a hospital where he was treated and released.  The initial responding RCMP members also went to the hospital where all have been released. One member remains off duty while the other two have returned to duty.

    A judicial interim release hearing was held.  Robin Jeremy Tatham was released on a Recognizance and is scheduled to appear in court on June 20 in Canmore.  He is charged with six criminal code charges; disarming a police officer, assault police officer with a weapon (x2) and assault a police officer (x3).

    “The efforts put forth by the attending officers to maintain control of this situation in the face of their injuries is to be commended” says Staff Sergeant Michael Buxton-Carr, Banff Detachment Commander.  “An incident like this demonstrates the risks we face and overcome on a daily basis.”
