MP John Barlow attended Wintervention’s silent auction, dinner and dance at Elks Hall Saturday night and met the Crowsnest CanDo working team
He spoke about coming Sesquicentennial celebrations in 2017, which will mark 150 years since confederation, and what promises to be the largest give away of funds ever in Canadian history towards cultural and recreational facilities and projects.
This could be good news for the Crowsnest Can Do Cultural and Recreation Society, which has been lobbying for the construction of a recreation centre in the Pass since the early 1990s and could use the federal funds.

“[Barlow] has committed to helping us work on our grant application,” explained Crowsnest Culture and Recreation Society President Tim Juhlin.
The recreation complex would include an aquatic centre, indoor track, racquet ball courts, weight room, gymnasium, dance studio and live theatre facility.
Juhlin said the facility could be built in Coleman between Crowsnest Consolidated High School (CCHS) and the Coleman Sports Complex to take advantage of the high school gym and the arena.
The venture would be pricey – Juhlin estimates it would cost around $27 million.
