City, Nolan Crouse File
Statements Of Defence

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 6.46.46 PM
A lawsuit filed against the city of St. Albert and Nolan Crouse last month by former civic council candidate Ted Durham, has resulted in statements of defence being filed by both parties and are now available to the public. (Download and read the statements by the city of St. Albert and Nolan Crouse.)

As well,
Durham has filed an amended statement of claim. We are publishing links to all three documents for reader access to them.

Revealed: Nolan Crouse Filed One Of The Complaints Against Election Candidates

The one thing that the defence statements do reveal is that it was Nolan Crouse who filed one of those complaints with the city against six candidates in the last civic election. The city had refused to identify the complainers prior to this statement. The city then sent letters to all six candidates questioning their filing of election expenses.

There was much speculation in our forum at the time of the complaints, that Crouse was involved. The identity of the second person who filed the other complaint about the same candidates was not revealed in the documents.

Readers are welcome to draw their own conclusions as to why Nolan Crouse chose to lay complaints with city administration’s own returning officer after reading the documents.

This whole situation has the potential to get ugly folks. Stay tuned.

How Often Do You Change Your Pajamas?

How Often Do You
Hardly anyone would dream of wearing a set of work clothes for three days in a row, but, as it turns out, most of us wouldn’t bat an eye at the thought of wearing the same pair of pajamas for weeks at a time.

And it’s a habit that could affect our health.

According to a new poll conducted by Ergoflex, a mattress company, the average man changes his pajamas every 13 days.

The average woman waits a whopping 17 days before she pulls out a new pair and throws the old ones in the laundry.
