Brandon Sun (Newspaper) - June 29, 2002, Brandon, Manitoba Dry soil helps by soaking up rain CONTINUED FROM Al Flying club GM hasn’t given up CONTINUED FROM Al Neither the University of Manitoba nor University of Winnipeg has submitted a proposal for an aviation degree program, according to Gordon. John Rice, a BU physics professor who has been heavily involved in the effort to bring an aviation program to Brandon, said if demand for pilots has dropped, training requirements should be on the increase. “I don’t know what COPSE is thinking of in suggesting that if the demand for pilots declines, that you would expect the ... requirements in terms of their training would also decline. That seems rather a peculiar thought.” There’s some concern in the local aviation community that COPSE wants to see the program in Winnipeg, he said. “I think we are dealing with this Winnipeg phenomenon. Why would a little place like Brandon want to do anything?” he said. “I think there’s kind of the feeling that, ‘well, if you propose doing something which we wouldn’t want to do or that we don’t see as very significant, that’ll be fine. Go ahead. “But if you’re proposing doing something that we wish we had thought of earlier, then we aren’t very happy with it.’” Rice said community support will play a large role in determining whether or not the idea moves forward. The proposal called for Brandon University to offer the academic portion of the program with the Brandon Flying Club involved in hands-on training. Corey Ahum, general manager of the flying club, still holds out hope it can happen. “We’re not finished yet. I’m not going to give up. Let’s put it that way.” Environmental science is also a program that’s been tossed around for a number of years, said Williams, but the current proposal headed to COPSE is stronger than ever. He said the four-year degree program presents a stronger basic science component than other program of its kind in Canada. If    approved    by COPSE, it would likely    not    be    offered until the fall of 2003. Williams said he’s pessimistic about the potential for an aviation degree program at Brandon. '7 think there's kind of the feeling that, ‘well, if you propose doing something which we wouldn't want to do or that we don't see as very significant, that'll be fine. Go ahead. But if you're proposing doing something that we wish we had thought of earlier, then we aren't very happy with it."' BU PHYSICS PROFESSOR JOHN RICE Hot weather, especially if the area receives more rainfall, could become a recipe for a rebirth, he says. So far, however, dry soil has soaked up most moisture. Algae, which blooms soon in water around the city, will also keep the mosquito population in fine. Mosquito eggs are lying dormant across Westman, waiting for standing water to hatch them. Homeowners can discourage mosquitoes by keeping grass trim, frequently emptying rain barrels and removing items like discarded tires, which can collect water, Bailey says. Backyard fish ponds usually aren’t a problem because fish eat mosquito larva, he says. A fountain or anything moving the water can also help. Students and the city are using global positioning technology to try reducing the mosquito population further in the future. It allows them to map the city on a computer, identify low spots and eliminate them as places for water to collect.

Currently, the province pays the bills of maintaining the grounds. Once the city takes possession, the province has promised to grant it $533,000 for each of the next two years plus $2 million toward redevelopment. Atkinson is still optimistic Bova will develop the site. “If it ends up ACC goes there, I think he’d be in the bidding very quickly. It’s a big job.” Bova isn’t saying directly whom he blames for the hold-up. “The land is under total control of the province. It is up to them to hold onto it or dispense of it.” Doer says the province continues to work at whittling costs of moving the college to the grounds “There are some real urban advantages of proceeding with a campus but we’ve got to get the numbers right... We certainly haven’t said no to it and we’re doing a lot of work on it.” College president Brent Mills says ACC is currently focusing on a programming plan for a new campus, instead of the cost. A national company visited the site several times, planning to turn one of the buildings into assisted-living suites for seniors. It’s since moved on to other projects, Bova says. “That kind of money doesn’t wait around.” Premier Gary Doer says the province has done what it can to re-start the project. “We’ve certainly cleared the brush to offer it to the city. We offered it to them and didn’t get the follow-through. At one point it was urgent to get it and at another point it got stalled.” But Mayor Reg Atkinson says the city has never refused to close the deal. However, he’s not anxious to take over the land unless the college gains approval to move there. “From the city perspective, we’re better off to wait... I just don’t want to do anything to jeopardize ACC.” That’s the only way to save the Parkland Building, which is the grounds’ largest building, he says.
