More than 70 people were on hand to hear Shelley Napier lay out the facts again about what happened when the Emergency Pandemic Plan written by herself and her staff ended up on the Manitoba Municipal Association website with the logo of this municipality and the name of our CAO as the author.
Her story moved some of the audience to tears and ended with apologies from several ratepayers in the audience who were upset at how the much respected emergency services consultant had been treated by the council and administration of this municipality.
The group of concerned citizens who organized the event also touched on the roles and responsibilities of council as well as answered a number of pertinent questions regarding procedural rules of order in municipal government.

The Russell Ag Society unveiled their new ground’s sign in preparation for the celebration of 141 years.
Russell Ag Society is very excited to see the arena grounds being utilized more as the next generation of parents and youth are growing and becoming more involved.
Membership continues to grow, as the Ag Society actively has around 40 members or 17 different families. The Ag Society is coming alive again.
They were very excited for the weekend of festivities planned and all the excitement that comes with full grounds. The arena remains to be used by many Ag Members for practice as well as the many events that are starting to come back to the Ag Arena. With the growing interest and the revival of rodeo in our community also comes many benefits and opportunities.
The Ag Society grounds extend from the north side of Russell Swimming Pool and encompass the ball diamonds all the way to the back alley of Mather Street.
