    Alberta RCMP Traffic Services score significant drug seizure in Banff

    On Saturday, Jan. 26, 2019, Alberta RCMP Traffic Services made a significant drug seizure near Banff.

    A traffic stop led the RCMP member to form grounds that the lone occupant of the vehicle was in possession of cannabis for the purpose of distribution. A subsequent search of the vehicle resulted in the seizure of approximately 326 lb. of cannabis, 10 lb. of psilocybin mushrooms, 4.5 lb. of cannabis resin (shatter), 2 lb. of THC edibles and $11,000 in Canadian currency.

    The cannabis seized in the stop would be enough to make over 440,000 average-sized joints.  The mushrooms seized would roughly equate to 9,000 average doses.

    “We remind Albertans that cannabis trafficking is illegal. The recent legalization of cannabis means that there are legal avenues to obtain and consume cannabis,” says Cpl. Kyle Maetche, Alberta RCMP Traffic Services. “I am very proud of the great team work and determination that our members display across the province to keep Albertans safe.”

    Alberta RCMP Traffic Services go beyond promoting road safety through enforcement activities. The RCMP will continue to work very closely with our law enforcement and safety partners to keep traveling criminals off Alberta roads and to further reduce crime in Alberta.

    As Hair Massacure Returns for Another Year, Here’s A Moving Look at How it Began

  • On February 22, 2019, thousands of heads will be shaved in honour of the journey of sick children losing their hair due to chemotherapy.

    People will gather once again at the Toyota Mayfield Ice Palace at West Edmonton Mall to collectively shave their heads, raising money in support of Albertans facing cancer.

    The Hair Massacure is founded, supported and organized by The MacDonald Family, in honour of their daughter Kali, a childhood cancer survivor.

    The MacDonald family partners once again with the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada and supports Terry Fox Profyle, a Pediatric cancer research project.

    With the support of their partners, the family plans to scale Hair Massacure to the national level with the support of the Children’s Wish Foundation, continuing to raise funding for pediatric cancer research and for children with life threatening illnesses.

    Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada

    Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is a 100% Canadian charity that grants the single-most heartfelt wishes of Canadian children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Every wish is as unique as the child making it.  In Alberta and the NWT, we grant a Wish every three days and approve around 180 new Wishes each year. Wish referrals can be made by anyone who has a child in their lives between the ages of 3-17 and meets the medical criteria. Become a supporter of the largest Wish granting organization in Canada today!

    Terry Fox Profyle

    For the first time in Canadian history, more than 30 pediatric cancer research and funding organizations have joined forces through Terry Fox PROFYLE, a pan-Canadian project to give children, adolescents and young adults who are out of conventional treatment options another chance to beat their cancer. Short for PRecision Oncology For Young peopLE, the Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI) and these research and funding partners are working and fundraising together under a unique partnership that to date is providing a total of $16.4 million to molecularly profile the tumours of these patients, no matter where they live in Canada. For example, if Terry Fox had been diagnosed with cancer today, he would have been eligible for PROFYLE when the tumour returned and spread to his lungs. A $5-million investment by TFRI is the catalyst bringing together top scientists and clinicians, research centres, cancer charities and foundations at children’s hospitals across the country to create new hope for young people who need it the most.

    Coronation RCMP respond to rear-end collision involving two semi-tractor trailer units 

    On February 11, 2019 at 4:13 a.m., Coronation RCMP, Coronation EMS and the Coronation and Castor Fire Departments responded to a complaint involving a two vehicle collision at the intersection of Highway 12 and Range Road 110 near the town of Coronation. Two semi-tractor trailer units were travelling eastbound on Highway 12. The leading tractor-trailer attempted to make a northbound turn onto Range Road 110 from Highway 12 when a rear-end collision occurred between the two tractor trailers.

    Coronation Semi Collision

    The adult male driver and lone occupant of the rear tractor-trailer was transported to the Castor hospital to treat his injuries.

    The driver and lone occupant of the lead tractor trailer was not injured.

    Poor road conditions due to recent snow fall was a leading factor in the collision.

    Coronation RCMP would like to take this time to remind the public to drive with particular due care and attention this time of year. Winter brings low visibility and treacherous roads which can result in various road hazards.  Paying close attention to the weather, road conditions and the speed and distance created between your vehicle and other motorists can significantly decrease the risk of a motor vehicle collision.
