Published

Written by Joe Whitbread

Despite a pandemic & economic uncertainty, (and even health issues) Jo Phillips and I are pretty proud to have successfully opened a whole new business, alongside what we’ve already accomplished at Joe Social Media Inc. and even created Summer jobs while we’re at it.
  
Have you heard of Jo(e) Youth Creative yet? You will.
Every adult knows or has some amazing, creative kids, that love to perform, create, draw, dance, produce, direct or play. These kids are using their devices, cameras and social channels to share cool content, to watch creators around the world, to learn and to communicate positively with their friends.
Kids are generating remarkable online channels and content but most adults keep them at arms length, based on fear or lack of knowledge. This is leaving good kids, who see obvious digital opportunities and fun, right in front of them, without permission to explore or achieve. These misconceived notions from parents, of what kids are actually doing online, is creating untrust and misunderstandings, because the internet and almost all media you see, tells us kids are doing terrible things online.
Joe Youth Creative is a first-of-its-kind, safe mentorship and learning space for kids! But it’s also for you!
Adults, seniors and kids have got to get on the same page when it comes to digital learning.
We’re running Summer camps and clubs in TikTok, YouTube, Instagram and many other unique social media opportunities for kids. (Space is very limited, due to Covid restrictions & we practice ALL health and safety guidelines).
We also have social media training and learning for adults and seniors.
Jo(e) isn’t about adding more screen time for your family, it’s about mentoring safe use, developing confident kids, fostering creativity, empowering youngsters to openly talk about the digital things they love at home, and even creating entrepreneurship opportunities, on amazing platforms, that have never been exposed or explored before, due to the negativity that surrounds every breath about social media in our world.
Jo and I have done our research, by touring in schools and speaking with 10’s of thousands of kids, parents, teachers, educators and experts.
We’re trusted, across the province, in our field.
We know there are plenty of good kids, doing great things online and we are desperately trying to support them, in what they’re doing, instead of banning and forbidding them from places adults admittedly know little about.
Please like our pages and check out our clubs, camps and courses. I’m wide open to any and all of your questions.

Alberta welcomes federal approval of gas pipeline expansion while criticizing delay

Published on

CALGARY — The Alberta government is welcoming news that Ottawa has approved an expansion of the Nova Gas Transmission Ltd. gathering system in Alberta — while condemning federal delays that it says cost this summer’s construction season.

Federal Natural Resources Minister Seamus O’Regan says the $2.3-billion expansion was approved by the government as part of a “commitment to moving forward with good projects.”

In a release, he says the federal government strengthened five conditions proposed by the Canada Energy Regulator and added one new condition, with the changes aimed at better addressing Indigenous rights and mitigating construction impacts on caribou habitat.

He says the pipeline division owned by Calgary-based TC Energy Corp. will now be required to restore 3,840 hectares of caribou habitat, an area 30 times the size of the habitat impacted by the project, and an Indigenous working group is to be formed to assist with the restoration and monitoring plan.

The project is expected to create up to 2,920 direct jobs during construction, the federal release said, while adding 344 kilometres of new pipeline to the existing Nova system from west of Red Deer in central Alberta to near Grande Prairie in the northwestern part of the province. 

Alberta Energy Minister Sonya Savage says the expansion is a “key infrastructure project” for the province’s natural gas industry.

“Despite months of delay, we are pleased the federal government has approved this key infrastructure project, which will create significant economic benefits and good jobs for Albertans, at a time they are needed the most,” she said.

“The project was expected to be under construction this summer but, as a result of delays by Ottawa, the bulk of construction is not expected to get underway until 2021.”

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Oct. 20, 2020.

TEAM LEADER INSTRUCTION SHEET

Thank you for putting together a team(s) for The Lending Cupboard’s Survivor fundraiser. The more teams that we have, the larger the prize AND the more money The Lending Cupboard (TLC) receives to further support our community!

The following is a list of the things that are required of you as the Team Captain in your group of six people:

  • You and your members should pick a fun name for your team. Put this name in the designated spot on the registration form, along with your name as Team Captain.
  • Make sure you have correct email addresses for all team members as this is the way that you will communicate.
  • Please collect $40 from each team member.
  • The $240 total team entrance fee can be paid via cash, debit, Visa or MasterCard or cheque made payable to The Lending Cupboard.
  • If paying by debit, Visa or MasterCard – it might be easier for you as team captain to have your members pay you, than you could pay TLC via your desired card.
