A private proposal to bring a four-season resort to Ingonish, N.S., has received a financial boost from Ottawa. Private partners working to redevelop the Cape Smokey ski hill received a $2.5-million loan Tuesday to be used in the construction of a gondola and a seven-storey observation tower known as a tree walk. "Our project is moving forward despite all these immense obstacles that COVID-19 is creating for us," said Joseph Balaz, president of Cape Smokey Holding Ltd. Balaz said the provincial lockdown in Nova Scotia means some key personnel are currently tied up at the New Brunswick border, which has meant delays and rising costs. The summer opening of the tree walk is postponed, as they've been unable to get construction materials to Ingonish on time. However, Balaz said the hill has about 70 per cent of the equipment and other components needed for the towers to shuttle what's described as Atlantic Canada's first gondola. "We are building towers for the gondola and we are absolutely excited about the project," he said.

But he said the funding is a meaningful show of support for the project. "It is very, very important — even for psychological sort of reasons," he said. "Imagine when you have a group of investors from far, far, far away. They need to sort of sense that the ... project is welcome by the province, by the local community." Property purchased in 2019 Balaz is among a group of Czech businessmen who purchased the property from the province for $370,000 in 2019. The construction of the tree walk is the crowning jewel of their proposal. "We discovered that in Europe there's several of these tree walk facilities ... that creates this year-round opportunity for activities, for employment, for tourists and especially for local communities," said Balaz. Balaz said the first phase of the project includes the gondola, tree walk and some hill improvements expected to cost $26 million. A brewery at the property is slated to open in 2022. Balaz said $20 million has been invested so far by project partners. They are holding out hope the gondola will be operational later this summer. Work underway Patrick Austin, Cape Smokey operations manager, said the hill will be offering a gift shop, bar and restaurant to tourists this summer. Construction is underway on a depot to store the gondola's lift baskets and the facility's parking lot is also being reconfigured. The construction phase of the project will add 85 jobs to the area, said Jaime Battiste, the MP for Sydney-Victoria. Battiste said the government investment ensures Cape Breton Island will be ready to welcome back tourists when leisure travel resumes in Canada. When asked about providing money to established tourism operators in Ingonish that have struggled throughout the pandemic, Battiste said Destination Cape Smokey will create economic spinoffs that will benefit them, as well. "A lot of small businesses in Cape Breton ... are just so excited about what this project is about and what it means to their small business to have more tourists coming," he said. MORE TOP STORIES

Brian Lannon, a 53-year-old Kamloops firefighter, is presumed drowned in Okanagan Lake after a weekend diving accident. Lannon was in Kelowna on May 15 for recreational scuba diving. According to a statement from Lannon's family, he had a dive in the morning that went smoothly. During the second dive of the day, Lannon became separated from his diving partner and the team lost contact with him. The team searched for Lannon with the help of nearby boaters, and called 911. The search for Lannon, led by Kelowna RCMP, has been ongoing since May 15 and is now considered a recovery effort. Jamie Chase, fellow Kamloops Fire Rescue member and close friend of Lannon, said Lannon was passionate about scuba diving. "It gives me some peace knowing that, you know, he was doing something that he truly loved and was trying to get the most out of life," Chase told CBC's Jenifer Norwell. Chase said Kamloops firefighters have been going to Kelowna on their days off to assist with the search and provide support for Lannon's wife and family. "We're all pretty close knit," Chase said. "When we lose someone like this, it's hard on everyone." He described Lannon as a "big-hearted guy" who took his work very seriously. "He demanded the best out of his crew and he'd do anything for you if you were willing to dedicate yourself as much as he was," Chase said.

Linda Neilson had waited a long time to get her second COVID-19 vaccination — and thanks to the generosity of the Blackfeet Tribe in Montana, the Alberta woman's wait ended at the Canada-United States border on Tuesday. Neilson, who is from nearby Cardston, Alta., was in one of hundreds of vehicles lined up at the Carway crossing in southern Alberta to go for a free COVID-19 vaccination at a mobile clinic set up on the U.S. side of the border. The Blackfeet Tribe, based in Montana just 150 kilometres south of Lethbridge, Alta., had an abundance of vaccine and decided last month to share it with Canadians rather than let it go to waste. Initially it was just open to First Nations, but the tribe soon decided to offer it to everybody. "I'm going to be all done, finally. It feels great. It's been a bit of a wait, but it's worth it," said Neilson, who received her first shot of Moderna in March. "I was amazed and grateful because it's too slow getting it any other way. We're just glad they were able to help us." Sherry Cross Child, who lives in Stand Off, Alta., gets her shot on Tuesday at the mobile clinic offered by the Blackfeet Tribe in Montana. The clinic vaccinated more than 450 of Canadian at its first clinic in late April and hundreds more lined up when it offered the clinic again on Tuesday. (Iris Samuels/The Associated Press) It initially took about a week to get approval from the tribal administration and both the Canadian and United States governments to set up the mobile clinic. Albertans who attend the clinic are given exemptions from having to quarantine for 14 days. They line up in their cars, drive through a loop that takes them just across the border, receive their shots through the window, are monitored for 15 minutes and return home. Health workers from the Blackfeet Tribe and members of the Montana National Guard administer the vaccine. The Blackfeet Tribe offered an initial two-day clinic in late April, vaccinating more than 450 people. Sleeping in cars, driving hundreds of kilometres Tuesday marked the second offering of shots. The lineup was more than a kilometre long by 9 a.m. Some people slept in their cars on the highway and on road allowances to ensure they got a turn before supply ran out.

(Iris Samuels/The Associated Press) That's what happened to Ken Sawatzky when he made the 620-kilometre round trip from Calgary a couple of weeks ago. He wanted to get his booster shot because his wife is a cancer patient. He made the same long road trip on Tuesday. "She's fully inoculated. This will make sure we're both safe, because I'm her caregiver, too. I think it's a great thing," said Sawatzky. "I'm looking forward to getting this done. I'll sleep better." 'I had a hard time believing it was that hard to get a shot in Canada' Bonnie Healy, health director for the Blackfoot Confederacy, helped co-ordinate the vaccination clinic. She said the response has been overwhelming. "I had a hard time believing it was that hard to get a shot in Canada. A lot of people are coming for a second dose," Healy said.

(Iris Samuels/The Associated Press) One man flew in from Toronto the last time around, drove to the site, got his shot and flew home, she said. "We had a car full of 18-year-old girls and another car full of 18-year-old boys," Healy said. "They were all coming to get their first vaccination. They were all celebrating it." Catherine Bechard, regional Indigenous Affairs adviser for the Canada Border Services Agency, said she jumped at a chance to help out at the clinic. "It's just an amazing thing what they're doing and a gift they're giving to Canadians," Bechard said. Dave and Cathy Goodbrand also drove the 260 kilometres from Calgary to get their second shots.

It's a relief. Four months is too long to wait in between vaccines," said Cathy Goodbrand. "It's absolutely beautiful. The Blackfoot Indians are just coming through (for us)." Alberta reaches vaccine milestone amid battle against highest case rate On Tuesday, Alberta reported 877 new cases of COVID-19 and 20,013 active cases. The total cases have been dropping gradually since the United Conservative Party government imposed stricter public-health restrictions after total active cases surged to a new high earlier in the month. Alberta has had the highest active-case rate per 100,000 people of all provinces and territories in Canada for weeks. However, the province said Tuesday it has reached a milestone, with more than half of Albertans aged 12 and over now vaccinated with at least one dose.
