Anderson (family)

Dr. Winfred George Anderson was born in Ontario, on January 4, 1881. He graduated from Western University in London, Ontario in 1903, and served as House Surgeon for St. Joseph's Hospital until moving west to Alberta in 1904. There he took up the practice of medicine in partnership with two other young Doctors in a town called Leavings, known today as Granum. In addition, the threesome opened a drug store to better serve their patients. While in Granum, Dr. Anderson met and married Agnes Ovens. They had 3 children: Bob, Jack and Lee. Since his health was not holding up to the strain of general practice, Dr. Anderson purchased some land north of the Red Deer River in the Wardlow district, to try the homesteading lifestyle. The early years on the ranch were very busy but Dr. Anderson always found time to help those in need of his medical services. Aside from his wonderful sense of humor, Dr. Anderson's talents included building and writing. He built a very large ranch house on the family homestead and in 1935, wrote a classic speech addressed to the Brooks Board of Trade. Later, in 1964, he wrote a series of articles for The Brooks Bulletin on his friend "Happy Jack" Jackson. While sheep, cattle and fox farming, Dr. Anderson also kept informed of changes in the medical field. He served as Council Representative and later, President of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta, and served on the Council of the Canadian Medical Association from 1937 to 1940. He and his wife retired to Medicine Hat in the early 1950's. During his retirement he worked hard to persuade the Department of Lands and Mines of the Dominion government to set aside the vast "Bad Lands" as a national park. Today, as a result, we have what is known as Dinosaur Park. Dr. Anderson died on February 4, 1966 at age 85. Jack Anderson was born in Wardlow, Alberta. He came to Medicine Hat in 1945, as District Agriculturist. He started the 4-H movement in Medicine Hat, and was very active in many other organizations.

Alberta. Municipal Affairs

Date of Founding and/or Dissolution:;The Provincial Planning Board was established in 1929 and dissolved in 1995. Functional Responsibility:;The Provincial Planning Board was initially established as the Town and Rural Advisory Planning in the Town Planning Act (S.A. Chapter 49, 1929). The Board was created to assist the Minister charged with the Act. At this time the act provided that towns, on a voluntary basis could prepare a land-use plan. This plan then had to be approved by the Minister with these functions. In 1953, a new Town and Rural Planning Act (S.A. Chapter 113, 1953) clearly defined the functions of the Provincial Planning Advisory Board. Under this statute the Board would administer surveys and conduct studies; hear and decide upon appeals arising out of local authority planning decisions; provide consultive services to Alberta local authorities; make grants to local authorities for planning purposes and provide a supervisory role in relation to District Planning Commissions. Predecessor and Successor Bodies:;The function of land-use planning began in 1913 with the enactment of the Town Planning Act (S.A. Chapter 18, 1913). With the proclamation of the Municipal Government Act (S.A. Chapter M-26, 1994), the Alberta Assessment Appeal Board, Alberta Planning Board and the Local Authorities Board were combined to become the Municipal Government Board. Administrative Relationships:;In 1934 legislation transferred jurisdiction of the Act and the Board from the Minister of Municipal Affairs to the Minister of Public Works. The Act was transferred back to the jurisdiction of the Minister of Municipal Affairs in 1948 through and amendment to the statute. Administrative Structure:;In 1953 the Provincial Planning Advisory Board consisted of representatives of Department of the Provincial Government concerned with any aspects of urban and rural development within Alberta. The Lieutenant Governor in Council appointed the members. The Lieutenant Governor in Council also appointed a Director of Town and Rural Planning who was the Executive Member of the Board. In the Planning Act (S.A. Chapter 43, 1963), The Provincial Planning Board consisted of the Provincial Planning Director, a chairman and other members. The Lieutenant Governor in Council appointed all the member of other than the Director. The Director was appointed in accordance with The Public Service Act. At this point in time, Minister of the Crown in the right of the Province of Alberta could not be appointed to the Board. Names of the Corporate bodies:;The Town and Rural Planning Advisory Board became the Provincial Planning Advisory Board in an amendment to the Town Planning Act (S.A. Chapter 71, 1950). The Provincial Planning Advisory Board became the Provincial Planning Board in the 1963 statute. The Provincial Planning Board would later be referred to as Alberta Planning Board in annual reports for the Department of Municipal Affairs.
