Rocky Mountain House RCMP Search for Missing Hiker

The Rocky Mountain House RCMP are currently searching for a missing hiker who was last seen Saturday morning.

At 11am on December 12th, 45 year old Keith Morris told his parents that he was going for a hike or a cross country ski west of Nordegg and that he would return by 3pm. Keith did not return and has not been heard from since his departure. Morris and his family are not from the area and were staying at a cabin in Nordegg.

Morris was last seen leaving the cabin in a silver 2007 Toyota Corolla with an Alberta licence plate of BYW161. He was wearing winter clothing including a black puffy jacket and a black and grey toque. He is described as caucasian, 5’10” tall, slender build with brown hair.

A coordinated search between Rocky Mountain House RCMP, neighbouring RCMP detachments and Search and Rescue is underway.

Given the extreme cold temperatures last night and today the RCMP is very concerned about Keith Morris’s wellbeing. If you have any information that could assist the RCMP in locating Morris please contact the Rocky Mountain RCMP at 403-845-2881.

Edmonton mother found guilty of manslaughter in death of five-year-old girl

Published on

EDMONTON — A judge has found an Edmonton woman guilty of manslaughter in the death of her five-year-old daughter.

Court heard that the girl died of blunt-force trauma and prosecutors alleged her mother beat her with a belt and a spatula.

The woman, who is in her 30s, had been charged with failing to provide the necessaries of life, assault with a weapon and second-degree murder.

Justice Avril Inglis says there was not enough evidence to convict the woman beyond a reasonable doubt on those charges.

But Inglis convicted the woman of manslaughter because evidence showed that the girl’s severe brain injuries were caused by an assault and the only person in the home capable of inflicting them was her mother.

The woman is expected to be sentenced in the fall.

TC Energy reports $1.1-billion net loss after $2.2-billion writedown on Keystone XL

Published on

CALGARY — TC Energy Corp. is reporting a first-quarter net loss of $1.1 billion after taking a $2.2-billion after-tax asset impairment charge on its cancelled Keystone XL export oil pipeline.

It says the impairment charge doesn’t yet include the government of Alberta’s investment and guarantees for the project, which are expected to eventually reduce the company’s net exposure to about $1 billion. 

Keystone XL was suspended after newly elected U.S. President Joe Biden fulfilled a campaign promise to cancel its presidential permit in January.

Since then, shippers including Cenovus Energy Inc., Suncor Energy Inc. and Imperial Oil Ltd. have reported non-cash writedowns on earnings related to their commitments to it.

In its quarterly report, TC Energy said comparable earnings without the charge were $1.108 billion or $1.16 per share, down from $1.109 billion or $1.18 per share in the year-earlier period.

It says revenue was $3.38 billion, down from $3.42 billion in the first quarter of 2020.

“While we were very disappointed by the revocation of the presidential permit for Keystone XL and the resulting after-tax impairment charge, we are well positioned to deliver sustainable, high-quality growth in the years ahead,” said CEO Francois Poirier in a news release.

 “We are advancing a $20-billion secured capital program and working on a substantive portfolio of other similarly high-quality opportunities under development.”
