St. Paul Journal, Tuesday, May 3, 2011 - 11 Court order evicts

Sun Country residents


Journal staff

Residents at Sun

Country Trailer Park were

devastated on Easter

Monday to find eviction

notices tacked to their

doors that threaten to

demolish their homes in

one month.

“This is your 30-day

notice to vacate the premises.

You are required to

move all of your possessions,

including trailer on

or before May 25, 2011 at

12 noon hour. Any property

that remains on site after

such date will be disposed

of, and restitution for the

cost of disposal will be

invoiced,” states the notice

signed by Tim Latimer and

printed on 806219 Alberta

Ltd. letterhead.

A court order, filed

March 17, 2011, effectively

grants ownership of Sun

Country Trailer Park, located

south of St. Paul on

Highway 881, to 806219

Alberta Ltd.

“The company foreclosed

on that property

because they lost a lot of

money on it and the mortgage

wasn’t being paid by

the previous land owner,

that’s why the judge has

given the order to change

the title over,” said Latimer,

in an interview with the

Journal on Sunday.

Latimer indicated that

he is not interested in continuing

to run a trailer park

on the site but didn’t say

what the company wants to

develop there.

“This company needs to

clean that property up to

start complying with the

health order,” Latimer said.

“After the losses that have

been sustained, I don’t

think anyone is interested

in continuing with the trailer

park there.”

A corporate search of

806219 Alberta Ltd. lists

Sharon Latimer as director,

and 1086825 Alberta Ltd as

100 per cent voting shareholder.

A corporate search

of 1086825 Alberta Ltd

indicates the Latimer

Family Trust of Edmonton

is 100 per cent voting

shareholder of the company.

One of three directors

of that company is Sharon


The trailer park has been

in the news since last fall

when concerns arose over

the condition of some of the

mobile homes. Inspectors

were sent out from Alberta

Health and the County of

St. Paul hired an independent

building inspection

company to look at the

trailers on the site. Some of

the trailers were deemed

unfit for human inhabitation.

However, several families

that live in the trailer

park own their

trailers and take pride in

having made repairs and


“It simply can’t be legal

to come in and take someone’s

home away and

demolish it,” Charissa

Miller, who along with her common-law

husband Ken and two children

own a trailer at Sun


It is impossible for the

families that live at Sun

Country Trailer Park to

move their homes in the

given time frame, said

Miller. Moving a trailer

requires a permit from the

County of St. Paul which in

turn requires an inspection

to be sure they are road

worthy. Even if the trailers

were in excellent condition

and they had the money to

pay for the move, the

Millers-Foys believe that it

would be impossible to get

the paperwork done in one


According to the Mobile

Home Tenancy Act,

depending on the circumstances,

tenants in a mobile

home park are normally

given six months to a year

to move their trailers, said

Mike Berezowsky,

spokesperson with Service


He added that the property

owner is also expected

to provide a reason.

However, he clarified that

if there is a court order, that

may overrule the Mobile

Home Tenancy Act.

Most of the people who

live at Sun Country are on

Assured Income for

Severely Handicapped

(AISH) or a fixed income

and lack the funds to be

able to move on short


“I don’t have seven dollars

left over at the end of

the month. Everything we

get goes to raising the girls.

How am I supposed to pay

for permits, inspections and

a moving truck?” questioned

Miller who is on

AISH because of a back

injury sustained in a fall.

The Millers, Richard

Benson, a single dad with

three children, and several

other residents of Sun

Country Trailer Park are

proud to own their homes

and have made numerous

improvements to their trailers

and to the trailer park. If

the water pump breaks

down, Miller said, her husband

and Benson are the

ones that fix it. “If one of

the trailers is in need of

repairs, it’s Richard or Ken

they call,” said Miller.

“It’s like a step back in

time to the 1950s,”

explained Charissa.

“Everybody pulls together

to help each other and

nobody expects to be paid

any money, because

nobody has any money.

You do it because you are

neighbours and you care

about people.”

Many of the residents

have built additions and

improvements onto their

trailers, expecting that they

would be there for a long


The Millers, for example,

have built a large deck

onto the east side of their

trailer where the sunrise

shines in on a room full of

toys for the girls. The yard

is fenced to keep the girls

safe when they play outside

with their puppies.

Benson, made numerous

upgrades and improvements

to his trailer after the

health department and

building inspectors hired by

the County gave him a list

of improvements needed to

bring his trailer up to code.

He moved to Sun Country

Trailer Park after a fire

burnt down a house he was

renting in the Town of St.


Kitty Flanders, age 67,

is living on an old age pension,

and said she maintains

her home and herself on

$750 per month.

She said she was in tears

when she received the

notice because she underwent

full hip replacement

on her right hip last May

and is preparing to have the

left hip replaced in about

three weeks.

“When you come out of

a major surgery, you are not

bending down and packing

things,” said Flanders. She

said it took her about seven

weeks to recover from the

previous surgery.

“I will likely be in the

hospital recovering from

surgery while they are out

here bulldozing my home

and everything I own.”

The community is not

going down without a fight.

Ken visited Legal

Aid last week and said residents

will file complaints

with Service Alberta.
