DISTINGUISHED & EMERGING ARTIST AWARDS JUNE 2022

Published

1 minute read

Lac La Biche County and Portage College have been making plans for a community celebration to honour three new 2021 Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Distinguished Artists. Given the ongoing COVID-19 related challenges of convening in person, Portage College, Lac La Biche County, and the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Awards Foundation have moved the celebration to June 11, 2022.

This change has provided a new opportunity: for the first time in the Awards’ history, the host community of Lac La Biche County will celebrate both the 2021 Distinguished Artists and up to 10 new 2022 Emerging Artists.

Her Honour Salma Lakhani, Lieutenant Governor of Alberta, says she is looking forward to honouring the Distinguished and Emerging Artists next summer in Lac La Biche.

“I appreciate the tremendous work that the community has already invested into this special celebration, and I know that the 2022 awards will be well worth the wait. In the meantime, I offer my heartfelt thanks to all of the artists, administrators and patrons across Alberta for everything that you are doing to keep the arts a vibrant part of our lives and our communities during this extraordinary time.”

The organizers look forward to hosting this prestigious event and showcasing Alberta’s diverse arts scene. Their June 2022 plans include opportunities to chat with artists, outdoor community celebrations featuring an Art Walk and Market, art classes and demonstrations, an artist retreat, and a celebratory awards gala.

China lifts restrictions on Canadian canola: Ottawa announces

Published on

OTTAWA — The federal government says China has lifted its restrictions on Canadian canola after a three-year trade dispute.

Ottawa says it has been advised that China has reinstated market access for two Canadian canola companies.

In March 2019, the Chinese government blocked canola shipments from Richardson International Ltd. and Viterra Inc. by suspending their licences.

The move followed the arrest of Chinese tech giant Huawei’s chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver a few months earlier.

Canada requested World Trade Organization consultations with China in September 2019 over the issue. A WTO panel was composed in November 2021.

Before the trade tensions, the Chinese market made up 40 per cent of Canada’s canola exports.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published May 18, 2022.
