We’re in essence being pushed to the sideline, and this is our stance indicating, ‘we necessarily mean small business!’. It’s the exact same with the coal mines, we never want this here.”


Estes suggests they are worn out of not receiving any solutions from any one, such as neighborhood politicians with Foothills County or from the Town of High River.

“Nothing, genuinely. I get very little from them now. I’ve emailed all the councillors. I was acquiring anything from some of the councillors but nothing at all now. They do not reply, they don’t response… I consider they’ve got mud on their encounter.
