I could not locate the actual article but I do recollect reading in one of the Edmonton or Calgary newspapers that the original "Peter" or is it "Pieter" was calling it quits.
Going strictly from memory I thought someone other than "family" purchased the place and was going to keep the same menu with the former owner on for awhile as a "consultant".
Had a spell of bad publicity last year with a number ecolli complaints...contaminated marshmallow topping in the milkshakes as I recollect.

I have easy access to a news clipping service, so I just did a search. I found a Dec. article in the Herald and the Journal that said there was a young couple taking over for Pieter, but that he would still be involved, and that the food and service wouldn't change.
And the E-coli thing was last spring for one day, due to a sick worker who contaminated the milkshakes.
