Quotes

Irene White says it's a great way to raise money for a worthy cause, "We have a saddle donated every year and for every $25 that the riders bring in in pledges they get a ticket in the draw for the saddle, so the more pledges they bring in the more chances they have at the saddle and the young lady who won the saddle, I believe the second year we had the ride, she was from Medicine Hat and she offered to put a ride on for us in that area and she ended up in the Cypress Hills at the historic Ressor Ranch."
"They were saying about 500 pages worth of stuff that those guys have to read. You're dealing with a city of 1.2 million people though. But with the state of High River, a lot of our agendas, a normal agenda is usually around 130 to 150 pages. Some have been well over 200 just because of what we're dealing with on flood issues."
"We're certainly promoting it with our members. I think we're going to start seeing to see that system get some traction in the next couple of years. It's going to take some time, but I think it's got some real potential. That is a really good voluntary strategy for employers to help their workers save for their own retirement."
"We are getting support from the town, and that's what bothers me. When you hear people complaining, the business owners complaining, I see the support from the town. I am not seeing the support from the business owners when it comes to Olde Town Okotoks and what we can do."
