Introducing the 2019 ACMA™ Hall of Fame Inductee
Industry Builder Ivan Daines

We are pleased to acknowledge the work of one of our key industry builders of Alberta country music history, Ivan Daines.  Help us celebrate the contributions and career of Ivan and his Alberta Country Music Hall of Fame induction Ceremony at the 2019 ACMA™ Awards on January 26, 2020 ~ Presented by Stingray Music.
Ivan Daines will be the 2019 inductee for the Association of Country Music in Alberta (ACMA) Hall of Fame at the ACMA Awards show on January 26, 2020.  Ivan has made many contributions to the western way of life, to rodeo and to country music. He is a cowboy, an artist and a promotor. By far his biggest contribution to country music has been with his Daines Country Pick-nic.  For 42 years he has given artists a platform to showcase their talent. Headliners like Russell DeCarle, Bobby Bare, Dan Seals, George Fox, Michelle Wright, Johner Brothers, Patricia Conroy, Duane Steele, Gord Bamford and many more have played his stage, but he has always had space for young up and coming Alberta artists since the beginning.  Congratulations and thank you Ivan for your decades of support”.
~ Bill Hanson, ACMA President

Calgary man who killed girlfriend to receive verdict in her daughter's death

Published on

CALGARY — A Calgary man who admitted to murdering his former girlfriend but denied killing her daughter is scheduled to receive a verdict in the case today.

Robert Leeming, who is 36, pleaded guilty on the first day of his trial to the second-degree murder of Jasmine Lovett in 2019 but not guilty in the death of 22-month-old Aliyah Sanderson.

His lawyer said during closing arguments in November that there’s no evidence to prove Leeming was responsible for the girl’s death.

Leeming testified he was looking after Aliyah when she fell down some stairs, then he found her limp and unresponsive when he checked on her later.

He said he snapped when Lovett accused him of doing something to her child and struck her several times with a hammer before coming back with a rifle and shooting her in the head.

The bodies of the mother and child were found buried in a shallow grave in Kananaskis Country, west of Calgary, in May 2019 after they went missing weeks earlier.
