Alberta’s newest multi-millionaire wishes she’d won her big lottery prize a couple of decades back, when she would have had more time left to enjoy it. Lois Olsen thinks 80 is a bit old for this $50 million business. “For my family, it’s going to help them out a lot,” she said Wednesday after picking up a cheque that was enormous in every sense of the word. “For me, I’m too old for this. I would have liked to have won this 20 or 30 years ago.” Olsen said she plans to spend at least some of her windfall on her kids, grandkids and great-grandkids.
The Alberta government announced it has approved 26 new school projects, as it promised in last week’s 2017 budget. Premier Rachel Notley and Education Minister David Eggen were at Woodhaven Middle School in Spruce Grove Tuesday to announce the projects, which included funding for eight new schools, nine replacements for older schools and seven modernizations. The Irma school replacement, Irma (Buffalo Trail Public Schools Regional Division) was one of the nine school replacements approved.
