Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, December 27, 1974 Close co-operation helps preserve economy, population at Duck Lak By GARRY FAIRBAIRN, Canadian Press Writer DUCK LAKE, Sask History could well have left this northern Saskatchewan town with a legacy of inter- racial bitterness To the southeast lies the battlefield of Batoche, where the forces of English Canada crushed the short-lived Metis nation of Louis Kiel To the west is a cairn mark- ing the place where the first shots were fired in the rebellion of 1885, leaving 12 dead from a police-volunteer force and five dead from a Metis Indian force The town itself was almost completely burned to the ground by the rebels Yet today the community of 600 is slowly but steadily building up its economy and population on the foundation of close co-operation among French, English, Indians and Metis While elsewhere in Sas- katchewan coolness has devel- oped between Indian reserves and the adjacent commu nities Mayor Alex Banbeau savs relations between Duck Lake and the 800 nearby resi- dents of Beardy's and Oke- masis Indian Reserve "are very good There's no problem there at all In fact, we built a new arena here two years ago and that was a project They joined in with us with certain grants that were available to them and turned them over to us to make this possible Co-operate The co-operation between the overlapping racial and linguistic groups takes many forms, one being the museum and handicraft store The three-storey museum, started by long-time resident Fred Anderson and assisted bv the board of trade, drew about visitors last sum- mer with its displays of uni- forms, ceremonial Indian dress documents photo- graphs weapons, tools and other artifacts More major boosts to local business have tome from the annual payroll of an alfalfa-dehydrating plant and the cow-calf oper- ation started on the reserve Such local initiative and co- operation, says town adminis- trator L C Ferret, is a basic reason why the town has not suffered the decline of other rural communities "Unless you get off your fanny and get something done about it, you'd be among those who are going down also Population Instead, the town's popu- lation has risen by 50 in the last two years, despite the at- tractions of the cities of Prince Albert and Saskatoon, 41 miles north and 49 miles south respectively Last summer, 20 new homes were built and another 20 are expected in 1975 Much of the growth is at- tributed to transportation changes, the same factor that ended the town's role as a re- gional centre in the early years of the century Mr Anderson, who was born here in 1886, recalls when the town was the supply centre for much of northern Saskatchewan, before the rail- ways were extended north- wards, cutting off market areas all around Now, Mr Ferret says, the Saskatoon-Prince Albert nigh- way is bringing in people from the cities who are seeking the small-town life "There is a certain per- centage of people who do not want to live in the city They're looking for a small town with the facilities They don't want to live in the city but they still want the facil- ities like sewer and water and natural gas, schools Government aid He is ready to give full marks to the federal and pro- vincial governments for pro- grams that have given the community the means to take VISITORS STROLL THROUGH RECONSTRUCTED DUCK LAKE VILLAGE CAREER OPPORTUNITIES THE NEW BRUNSWICK ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION Requires the following: I Civil
