St. Albert Library Petition
Borrowing Bylaw #24/2017


I have attached a
Petitioner’s Signature Form for the subject petition. We need to collect 6500 signatures before May 14th, just over two weeks - a daunting task but not impossible. We certainly will fail if we do not pursue it … that’s an absolute guarantee. However, let us work to get this accomplished. Get your friends and neighbours to join in with their signatures and to participate in getting their friends and neighbours to sign also.

If you can, go door-to-door in your neighbourhood. As a coordinated logistical plan, let me know what streets you will be canvassing.

Please note: Also attached is an ‘Affidavit of Execution’ to be completed by the witness of the signatories. The witness would best be the same person for all the signatories per ‘Petition Signature Form’.
Download and print the forms here.

Only residents of St. Albert who are Canadian citizens and are over 18 years old are eligible to sign the petition.

Let me know when and where I can collect your completed forms.

Check ‘St. Albert Library Petition’ Facebook for updates and more details.

Let’s get cracking and win this battle for the good of all residents of St. Albert.

Best Regards,

Steve Stone
St. Albert

A Sunday Sermon

A Sunday Sermon
One Sunday morning as Pastor Smith is about to deliver his sermon, he asks the congregation how many of them managed to read Mark Chapter 17 as he'd asked them to the previous Sunday.

Almost all hands in the church went up.

"Very well," Pastor Smith continued.

"By the way, Mark only has 16 chapters, and the topic of today's sermon shall be lying."

The Addiction That’s ‘Worse Than Alcohol Or Drug Abuse’

The Addiction That’s
If you can’t seem to resist a scroll through your Facebook or Instagram feed during working hours, or if you feel anxious when you can’t check your smartphone or have no signal, you might need a digital intervention.

In the last few years, social media users who find it impossible to stay off their devices when they would like to resist them are seeking treatment via professionals. And they’re responding. Therapists are offering counselling, mindfulness coaches are hosting detox retreats, and corporate-wellness startups are all vying to help you get through the day without constant, compulsive scrolling.
