Aboriginal community scotdesco turns saltbush to create jobs and wealth by Chris White September 24, 2012 [Native Advertisement] The City of Edmonton is moving forward with a new resource-rich water-use management facility in the community of Scotiabank. But the Scotiabank-owned land where the project will be built is on the Aboriginal land of residents living in the area, according to Indigenous Affairs and Northern Development Minister Gordon Dirks. “The land has been identified by the city as an appropriate place for an investment in a new water-use management facility. The community in question is living and working and has access to their own water and wastewater systems.” 바카라The city has received approval to expand the Scotiabank-funded and owned water-use management facility by 10,000 square feet to cover an area of about 800 acres. The expansion includes 12 new homes, plus more than 25 parking spaces, says city spokesperson Peter Fitzpatrick. “The amount of water that’s coming from the well is being piped directly to these residential facilities to give them an opportunity to use it instead of the existing water,” says city spokesperson Catherine Russell. “We think that will contribute significantly to water-supply in the area,” she says. Fitzpatrick said in the statement issued Wednesday that city staff would be meeting in January with the Indian community바카라. The Scotiabank water-use management facility is part of a larger proposal to replace the existing Water-Shine program, a program originally created in the 1960s to provide a supply of clean, stable, and safe water to low-income residents in low-income communities. The program served 100,000 Albertans in 2014. While the money for this project, from the federal, provincial, and commercial sectors, is still being negotiated, the Scotiabank announcement comes a year after the province announced plans to save $3.6 billion in the next four years by eliminating the Water-Shine program and using $9 billion in federal funds to purchase natural-gas as an alternate water source, instead of paying to acquire water from private sources. The Calgary Herald’s coverage of the announcement was headlined: Water-Shine, Water-Coup, and the future of Alberta’s most vital public infrastructure project.
