I had a good day on the river yesterday. After we cleared the trees on the safty bout line we went for a ride up the river. It's really changed since the last time I was there. Alot more shallow areas and a lot more deadheads. I guess the reservoir for the dam is filling in. The scenery was excellent but I noticed a sad thing. The trees are changing to autumn colors. Winter will be here all too soon.

Buck the dog has added a new source of protein to his diet. Yesterday on our strut his main interest was grasshoppers and crickets. The dog was catching the grasshoppers in the air as well as on the ground. He sure has a strange taste in food as he leaves his kibble to a last resort.

By: plapman, 1:06 PM GMT on August 17, 2007

Today will be sunny with a high of 21 expected.
Tonight will bring a few clouds and another single digit low of 8.
The long range forecast for the weekend sounds promising for the Potato Festival as well as the stopover of the Hudson Empress.
The Hudson will be pulling passenger cars with passengers from Brandon who boarded in Winnipeg making thier way home. When it stopped here before Portagers had a chance to ride from Winnipeg. It would be a great experience behind the chugging locomotive.

My GGGG Grandfather

Falcon, Pierre (1793-1876) Metis poet and songwriter. He was born near present day Swan River in Manitoba to a North West Company father and a (possibly) Cree mother. He was educated and grew up in Lower Canada and returned to the west, marrying into the family of the famous Cuthbert Grant. He was a farmer and, later, a magistrate, and on the side he turned local current events into song, often accompanied by the violin, including one particular piece about The Battle of Seven Oaks. He became known as Pierre the Rhymer. Falcon Lake is evidently named after Pierre Falcon. He died in St. Francois Xavier, just west of Winnipeg.

Cooler but Sunny on the Prairie

By: plapman, 1:06 PM GMT on August 16, 2007

Today will be sunny with cloudy periods with a northwesterly flow at 20 km/h. A high of 20 is expected.
Tonight will remain clear with an overnight low of 8 forecast.

A cool walk to work this morning with a temp of 8. I guess autumn is just around the corner here on the prairie.



The Hudson Empress is scheduled to make a stop in Portage this Sunday. She's a restored steam locomotive owned by the Canadian Pacific Railway. The last stopover here was on July 1st 2003.
The resurrected CPR Empress locomotive 2816 re-entered active service in 2001 as a roving ambassador for Canadian Pacific Railway. The CPR Empress is now a significant component of the company's program. CPR's 2816 is a class H1b Hudson-type locomotive built by Montreal Locomotive Works in December 1930. CPR Empress is now the only surviving H1b Hudson and is one of only a handful of preserved and operating CPR steam locomotives in North America.

Initially the locomotive ran westward out of Winnipeg to Calgary and eastward to Fort William, Ontario (now part of Thunder Bay). Locomotive 2816 then moved into service on the Windsor-to-Quebec City corridor. Its last assignment was at the front of a Montreal-Rigaud commuter train, making its final revenue run on May 26, 1960. Having logged more than two million miles in active service, 2816's fires were extinguished. After a complete three-year rebuild, 2816 is restored to the original specifications with external details from the 1930/40s.

Named after the Hudson River, the Canadian Pacific Hudson-type locomotives were first built by Montreal Locomotive Works in 1929. They came with larger fire boxes than earlier locomotives and produced more steam at higher pressure than their predecessors. The 2816 worked with the top passenger trains of the 1930s between Winnipeg and Calgary. It was built as a high-powered, fast passenger locomotive. According to CPR steam table calculations, the 2816 was good for 4,700 horsepower at 55 miles per hour. The 2816 regularly operated at speeds in excess of 70 miles an hour. Today about 75 miles an hour is as fast as anything will go for CPR. The 2816 is from a group of Hudsons (2800 to 2819) that came into service in 1929 and 1930. It is the only survivor of the original 20

We had a small rain last night. I got up to let Buck the dog out at around 3 am and it was raining heavily. It couldn't ahve lasted long though as there aren't any puddles around.
This weekend brings the Potato Festival. There'll be activities for the kids, a battle of the local bands and the band Streetheart on the main stage in the evening. The event is held on our Island Park this year due to the bypass closure being still in effect. It should be a good days entertainment and best of all is't all free. McCain's and Simplot, 2 fry plants, are corporate supporters as well as many local businesses.

The Oldest Polar Bear in the World
From CBC News
A Winnipeg zoo is home to the world's oldest living polar bear, Guinness World Records says.
Debby, who lives at Winnipeg's Assiniboine Park Zoo, is 40 years old double the life expectancy of most polar bears that live in the wild.
Zookeepers say Debby loves to get her beauty rest.
(CBC) "We like to boast that we're the polar bear capital of the world, with all of the polar bears up at Churchill and along the coast," zoo curator Bob Wrigley said.
Zoo officials believe she was born in Russia in December 1966 and arrived in Winnipeg the following spring.
She spent years living in her enclosure with her former mate Skipper, who died six years ago.
Zoo keepers say the pair would huddle together outside through the night, even in -40 C. temperatures. In the morning, they would wake up completely covered in snow drifts, Wrigley said. Their long relationship was unusual for the usually solitary animals.
At a celebration of her Guinness record later this month, zookeepers plan to feed Debby some of her favourite treats smoked goldeye fish, veggie dogs and a fish frozen inside a block of ice.

The Republic of Manitobah
by Hartwell Bowsfield

Manitoba Pageant, September 1961, Volume 7, Number 1


Very soon after Thomas Spence arrived in the Red River Settlement in 1866, it was realized that he would play a prominent role in political affairs; he was looked upon at once as a politician and it was not surprising for Spence lost no opportunity of presenting himself as such. His political ambitions were high - and he sought to represent his views and plans as the opinions and plans of others who had been in the settlement for many years.

One of the most interesting stories about this man who was determined to lead and to organize concerns what is probably the strangest and wildest political experiment ever made in the Canadian West.

Thomas Spence was very soon in a public office, Although he did not hold this office long or with much success, it can be said that he did become the President of a Republic - at Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. In 1867, Spence moved from the Red River Settlement to Portage la Prairie where he opened a store and became one of the leading spirits of that community. Portage la Prairie, though within the Hudson's Bay territory of Rupert's Land, was then outside the jurisdiction of the government and Council of Assiniboia whose powers extended only fifty miles west of Fort Garry. The community had no courts, no police, no taxation, no government, and no laws except those the people chose to observe. It was an ideal spot for a man of Spence's ambitions to set up a government in the way and for the purposes he wanted.

In June 1867, he gathered about him a group of settlers hoping to set up a government for the community. An address was sent to Queen Victoria asking for recognition, law, and protection. No reply was received. In January 1868, some of the settlers under Spence's direction decided to organize the community as a Republic - first called Caledonia and then the Republic of Manitobah. The boundaries, which extended for hundreds of miles, were very indefinite with the exception of the dividing line between the western limit of the District of Assiniboia and the new Republic. A council was chosen and oaths of allegiance were given to those who would take them. Spence was chosen President of the Republic and Findlay Wray, Secretary.

A government, if it is going to do anything, must have money. Revenue for the Republic to build a council house and jail was to be raised by taxing imports. Notices were served on all traders. When the Hudson's Bay Company officer at Portage refused to pay such a tax the council of the Republic decided that they could do nothing at that time but warned that they would make it hot for the Hudson's Bay man when they had built their jail.

Further trouble developed when a shoemaker by the name of McPherson charged that the money obtained by taxation wasn't being used to build the council house and the jail but was being spent on liquor for the members of the government and the council. This charge the Republic could not overlook without some show of authority. This was to be a test to prove whether it could govern and enforce the law. It failed miserably. McPherson was charged with treason to the Republic, a warrant was issued for his arrest and two constables sent out to bring him back to trial. But the two constables who set out in the performance of their duties were quite drunk when they approached McPherson's home. Having been warned by their noise and their singing, McPherson was sitting in his home cleaning his revolver when the two arrived.

In a fight that followed McPherson escaped hoping to reach the boundary of Assiniboia but the constables on horseback soon over-took him. One attempt to rescue him from his captors on the way to trial failed. This trial, which took place in the log home of one of the constables, turned into a humiliating experience - especially for the Republic and its President - for it soon became a brawl. The lights went out, revolvers were fired and the President was forced to take shelter under a table while McPherson was being rescued by his friends.

Built on a shaky foundation the Republic of Manitobah was almost a comical experiment. Government of some sort was necessary for the community. Spence hoped to establish a government with some authority which would deal with Canada and enter into Confederation. He also expected that when this was done his personal interests would not be overlooked by the Canadian Government.

In February 1868, he had written the Colonial Minister in London announcing the formation of his Republic. He had already been told by the Governor of Rupert's Land that his government had no power. When the Colonial Office replied that the Republic had no force in law, that the people had no authority to create or organize a government, the Republic of Manitobah collapsed.
