Sask Sisterhood road trip empowers women By Darcie Khounnoraj Waking up in the morning to a day filled with lists and demands but your eyes are still blurry from your slumber, the morning coffee is barely enough to wake those weary eyes. You sip as you process your day ahead, your job duties, all of your to-do lists, but did you forget to book your own time to breathe, to take space in life, to acknowledge feelings and to love yourself first and foremost? Sure, life can get a little hairy at times and we forget about ourselves as we are mission-minded through each day, but are we serving our true mission in life? This was a real question for former Geologist Amanda Perrot, Founder of Grounded Goodness and the face of Sask Sisterhood Road Trip 2018. Serving 15 missions of empowerment to women 4,000 km’s across Saskatchewan on her Sask

Sisterhood 7-week road trip, Amanda is delivering a unique and responsive talk with the women of several communities with the help of location hosts, making headlines alongside her and across the province. Amanda’s mission is loud and clear: “Our aim is to bring women together to talk about our struggles, our successes, our everyday ‘stuff’. By using our voices, our hope is that Saskatchewan women will feel confident to ask for what we want (in everyday life) and accept nothing short of what we deserve.” Now that’s what I call a mission! Imagine feeling empowered as you stride through life because one person cared enough to make a change in your life, to reach out and make you see your true potential. With previous meets in Eatonia, Lucky Lake and Regina, Amanda has met

the beach volleyball winning title. The 30th Annual Beach Volleyball Tournament will be held at the Windthorst Arena on Saturday, August 18th with up to sixteen participating teams. The participating teams

Fifteen women attend the Sask Sisterhood Road trip event to learn about empowerment and spotlighting modern day women at Kenosee Lake. a variety of women that are so unique in their own way but so similar in many others. “We’ve been able to meet up with different

groups of women and the conversations just happen. When we look around, we see that many of us are going through the same things

consist of 8 players with a minimum of two female players. So far, 10 teams have been registered for the event, with hopes that more teams will partake in the fun beach themed sporting event. All players must

be 16 years of age or older to play with their team. The $160/team entry fee includes admission to the evening’s cabaret, otherwise visitors to the cabaret will pay a door fee of $10. Anticipated start time for the beach volleyball tournament is tentatively 11am and all teams are encouraged to arrive early so that the event can begin on time and with ease. This annual event is an influential fundraiser for the Windthorst Arena, helping to raise money for the necessary upgrades and maintenance throughout the year. Although there is no charge for the spectators during the scheduled games, make sure to bring some extra cash for the thirst quenchers at the beer gardens and for treats at the concession.

Music man Matty Gee will be playing a variety of tunes at the evening cabaret, not just keeping the volleyballer’s on their feet

Anytime a connection was made or the group felt empowered together, Amanda delivered high-fives and a quirky “yeah, I love this!” Fifteen women from Kipling, Carlyle, Kenosee Lake, United States and neighboring communities met at the Kenosee Inn with knowledge that they were attending a ‘women empowering women’ hike event but were initially unaware of the bonds that would come out of it. Host Shawna MacDougall planned an afternoon of hiking through Kenosee

Lake’s Youlle Trail and part of Beaver Lake Trail with the group of anxious ladies. Standing in a circle, the ladies introduced themselves, sharing their name and some fun information about themselves. This gave the group an opportunity to make small talk as they entered the trails. The 40-minute trek through the trails helped the women to unwind and feel at ease with their company, many switching walking partners to converse about their lives as they treaded along the beaten path. Returning to the Kenosee Inn, the ladies were in complete comfort as they sat in their sharing circle with a delicious plate of saskatoon crisp and lemon/lime waters to discuss matters at hand for modern day women. The group spoke about raising children and making their continued on page 7

Kingswood Golf Course is the place to Tee! By Darcie Khounnoraj As the summer months are progressing, golfers are getting into the swing of things with annual golf tournaments and golf-related events at local and nearby gold courses. On Saturday, August 11th, the Kingswood Golf Course will be hosting a Mixed 4-Person Scramble to golf enthusiasts of all ages. The 18-hole tournament playing best ball, each player hitting their own ball throughout the round is a sure-ďŹ re way to create some great memories on the greens. This year’s tournament will be taking the place of the previous annual HoleIn-One tournament, oering golfers of all levels, all genders and all ages to take part and win bragging rights. “We are hoping that by changing it to a mixed scramble, it opens the door to many more golfers who are able to

participate instead of sitting spotting holes for us!â€? explained Maria Stender-Hill, Member of the Kingswood Golf Course Board. “If any team has a preference of another team in which they would like to tee o with, they can specify that when pre-registering their team.â€? A delicious supper provided by the Kingswood Clubhouse is included with the golf tournament fee and cold beverages will be stocked in the clubhouse for golfers to enjoy during the day and well into the evening. To take part in the Mixed 4-Person Scramble, please pre-register your team by calling (306) 736-8220. Registration is at 9am with a Tee O time of 10am. Male golfers will soon have the opportunity to swing into action on the greens during their upcoming Men’s Classic Tourna-

ment on Saturday, August 25th. This 18-hole tournament playing individual score will allow the best golfer not just bragging rights but maybe an extra cold one at the clubhouse following the round. A supper provided by the Kingswood Clubhouse will be sure to satisfy the hungry golfers following their day on the course and is included in the golfing tournament fees. The Kingswood Golf Course Board asks that the Men’s teams pre-register no later than Tuesday, August 21st by calling (306) 736-8220. Registration on Saturday, August 25th will begin at 9am and Tee Off time begins at 10am. Utilizing the greens and golf course area is somewhat of a luxury to those who visit on a regular basis. Sponsors, both near and far, make tournaments like these

possible and the golf course readily available for recreational use. “Kingswood Golf Course is a non-proďŹ t organization, and because of

our generous sponsors along with our supportive golfers, we are able to provide Kipling and surrounding area with a beautiful 9-hole grass

green golf course,� Maria shared. “Without them, the cost, day to day operations to maintain the course would not be possible.�

Editorial Message from Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe Last week, the Angus Reid Institute published a new national public opinion poll indicating that seven out of 10 Canadians believe the Government of Saskatchewan was right to challenge the Trudeau carbon tax in court, while two thirds of Canadians believe it should be the provinces - not Ottawa - that determine the appropriate path to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Two weeks ago, Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced that Ontario would support Saskatchewan’s legal challenge of the Trudeau carbon tax by seeking intervenor status in our government’s reference case at the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal. In declaring his support for Saskatchewan, Premier Ford was unequivocal, stating that Ontario would use every single tool at its disposal to challenge a carbon tax that would make life unaffordable for families and put thousands of jobs at risk. Three weeks ago, Prince Edward Island confirmed it is preparing a climate action plan that does not include a carbon tax or a cap and trade system. PEI Environment Minister Richard Brown said: “If the objective is to reduce carbon in the air, and we have a plan to do that, then why do we need a tax?” No doubt other provinces are asking the same question, as Ottawa’s September 1 deadline for carbon pricing proposals approaches. So this is the situation we find our nation in: Two or perhaps three provinces are in compliance with the federal carbon pricing plan Two provinces are challenging the plan in court And a number of the remaining provinces and territories will not be in compliance come September

The federal government would be well advised to take a step back to reassess and consider the withdrawal of its onesize-fits-all carbon tax and adopt a more collegial approach to addressing climate change. This was the approach Prime Minister Trudeau espoused in March 2016 when he met with Canada’s Premiers in Vancouver to discuss climate change. In Vancouver, the Prime Minister declared a willingness to work with the Premiers “in the spirit of cooperation and collaboration”. Soon afterward, Ottawa unilaterally imposed a carbon tax, in a betrayal of those warm sentiments. It’s time the federal government stepped back and took another look at what the provinces are actually doing to combat climate change. In Saskatchewan, we have released a climate change plan – Prairie Resilience – that will lead to a real reduction in greenhouse gas emissions without a carbon tax that would cost our province’s energy intensive, export-oriented economy $4 billion over five years. In Saskatchewan, we are in the process of doubling our renewable power to 50 per cent of our electrical generating capacity, in part by working with First Nations on innovative projects. We have invested more than a billion dollars in the world’s first commercial power plant with a fully integrated post combustion carbon capture system – the Boundary Dam 3 project (BD3). BD3 has captured more than two million tonnes of carbon dioxide – the equivalent of taking 500,000 cars off the road. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) has been identified as a

Kipling Rec Report Submitted by Susan Hengen, Recreation Programmer How active are your kids this summer? The ParticipACTION Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth states the “Canadian kids need to move more to boost their brain health”. Kids need to drop the phones, turn away from the screens, get off the couch and break a sweat. It’s time for them to get moving more – for the sake of their brains. There are important connections between the health of the body and of the brain, connections that must be fostered in order for kids to reach their mental, emotional and intellectual potential. Kids’ bodies have to move to get the wheels in their brains turning. They need to be active. Their brain health depends on it. A growing body of evidence indicates that physical activity in childhood is essential for a healthy brain, leading to improved thinking and learning, emotional regulation and self-control, problem-solving ability, memory, brain plasticity (the growth of new brain tissue), stress management, ability to cope with anxiety and depressive symptoms, self-esteem and self-worth, and attention and focus. Adding more physical activity to kids’ routines could be the missing part of the equation to support their success in the classroom, on the field, and with their friends. Increased physical activity during the school day can help children’s attention, classroom behavior, and achievement test scores. Meanwhile, the decline of play is closely linked to ADHD; behavioral problems; and stunted social, cognitive, and creative development. Darell Hammond Join us on Wednesday, August 15 for an Inline Skating Party at the Kipling Arena, from 4:00-9:00 p.m. Hot dogs, hamburgers and drinks will be provided by System III Supply Ltd and will be included in the $3.00 admission fee. The Inline Skating Party is open to everyone – there is no age limit! Bring your rollerblades (or good old roller skates if you have them), and join us!

Summer Slam Volleyball Skills Camp will run August 21-23 for the 10th consecutive season at the Kipling School Gym. The camp is a developmental camp for boys and girls, ages 11-14 years; as well as a high level experience for males and females 15 years and up. Athletes will have the opportunity to develop and/or refine all the technical skills of the game, learn new fitness and nutrition tips and participate in game play and strategy. Athletes are primarily grouped according to age, with both groups receiving 5 skills sessions, followed by a session of “wrap-up” play on the final day of the camp. Instructors again for 2018 are Braden McLean and Bryan Fraser, both playing professionally in Europe and Israel in their 2017/18 seasons. Brochures are available at the Rec Office and Kipling & District Swimming Pool – stop in for one or call to have one emailed (306) 736-8440. Summer Slam is filling up fast, so get your registrations in now! Kipling & District Swimming Pool is the place to be to beat the heat! Join us for Public Swimming from 1:005:00 p.m. and 6:30-8:30 p.m. weekdays, as well as from 1:00-5:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Lane Swim is scheduled from 7:00-8:00 a.m. and 5:00-5:30 p.m. on weekdays, as well as 12:00-1:00 p.m. on Saturdays. Aquafit will run Tuesdays-Fridays from 5:30-6:30 p.m., as well as through the noon hour on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our final session of Red Cross Swim Lessons begin on Monday, August 13, running for one week (lessons twice a day, Mon-Thurs. and once on Fri.). Kipling Campground has sites available this season – if you are looking for a space, give the Rec Office a call (306) 736-8440. Also, please be reminded that the firewood in the RV Park is only for patrons camping in the campground. Use of the dumpster in the Kipling Campground is also limited to patrons.

crucial technology to reduce emissions by the United Nations, the International Energy Agency and a number of environmental groups. Saskatchewan is a world leader in advancing this important technology. This should be recognized by the federal government. We are devising an offset system that will recognize our province as a carbon sink and a research leader in agriculture. Carbon intensity in agriculture has been reduced in part because of research undertaken in our province, in genetics, agronomy, and in zero till technology that sequesters carbon in the soil. In Saskatchewan, we manufacture air drills and export them to Russia, Kazakhstan, throughout Europe, the United States and Australia. These Saskatchewan-made air drills are reducing greenhouse gas emissions around the world. At home, more than 70 per cent of our land is cultivated using zero till technology. Meanwhile, the production of pulse crops in Saskatchewan has soared, from 400,000 acres in 1990 to six million acres today. We are one of the world’s leading exporters of lentils, peas and chickpeas, crops that fix nitrogen, use less fertilizer, and therefore have a lower carbon footprint. Saskatchewan’s agricultural soils are an enormous carbon sink, sequestering millions of tonnes of CO2 every year. This, too, should be recognized by the federal government. As should the millions of tonnes of emissions offset by Saskatchewan uranium used to produce nuclear power in the United States and Asia. Saskatchewan industries – Canadian industries – are more environmentally responsible and operate more sustainably than many of their competitors around the world. If we really want to lower emissions, we should encourage Canadians to purchase sustainably-produced Canadian products. And we should give the provinces the freedom to develop climate change polices that actually work, without a federal carbon tax.

Water Security Agency urges Sask residents to be cautious of doorstep “water testing” kits The Water Security Agency (WSA) wishes to draw public attention to the business practices of private companies leaving “water testing kits” on people’s doorsteps. Recently, some residents across the province have been receiving these kits, which include a bottle and instructions for water testing. The instructions for taking a water sample are incorrect and the bottle provided does not appear to be sterilized. Residents should be cautious if they are encouraged to purchase water purification

kits at the doorstep. Public confidence in Saskatchewan’s drinking water systems is a core priority for WSA. WSA partners with municipalities across Saskatchewan to ensure drinking water is safe, in accordance with national drinking water standards. Rigorous and ongoing testing requirements are a condition of WSA’s permits of water systems. The public can see testing information for all WSA regulated waterworks at MyDrinkingWater.asp.

Recently the Government of Saskatchewan announced that a new early learning pilot program for preschool-aged children who are deaf and hard of hearing, or connected to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities, will open in Regina and Saskatoon this fall. The program will be delivered through a partnership with the Saskatchewan Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services and Regina Public Schools. One half-day program will operate in both Regina and Saskatoon, with up to 16 three and four-year-old children in each program. Parents or guardians of program-eligible children who are deaf and hard of hearing are encouraged to apply by contacting Regina Public Schools or Saskatchewan Deaf and Hard of Hearing Association directly. Additionally, siblings, cousins or family friends of a similar age, as well as children or family members of deaf and hard of hearing individuals are encouraged to apply in order to build communication and social skills and encourage ongoing learning and interaction. “I know how important it is to make sure our

youngest learners have every opportunity to succeed,� Deputy Premier and Minister of Education Gordon Wyant said. “Thanks to these new partnerships, I am pleased that children who need to access these supports can readily do so.� “We know how important it is for children to have a good start in life so that they can succeed,� Federal Minister of Families, Children and Social Development Jean-Yves Duclos said. “I am pleased to see that funding from the Canada-Saskatchewan Early Learning and Child Care Agreement will be used to support this inclusive early learning pilot for preschoolaged children who are deaf and hard of hearing. This opportunity will help them reach their full potential.� “This investment creates greater equity in the education sector by improving the quality of early learning for preschool-aged children who are deaf and hard of hearing and allows every child to have a fair chance at success� Federal Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Ralph Goodale added. The Children Communicating, Connecting and in

Community pilot aims to provide quality early learning environments, including professionals who work to reduce communication barriers by facilitating language development and communication skills for children who are deaf and hard of hearing. Families are encouraged to be active participants in their child’s learning. “Success in school and in life begins with access to education,â€? Regina Board of Education Chair Katherine Gagne said. “We are grateful to the Government of Canada, and the Government of Saskatchewan for helping Regina Public Schools, and Saskatchewan Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services oer this pilot that will beneďŹ t children from the Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities. This pilot project will provide more support for preschool-aged children and will help build a solid foundation for our youngest learners.â€? “In order to flourish, Deaf and Hard of Hearing students need a language rich learning environment that fosters a sense of belonging,â€? Saskatchewan Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services Executive Director Nairn

Gillies said. “All children need an environment that is welcoming and is designed to meet the needs of the students. I am so proud to be able to partner with the community to create accessible preschool programming, with a strong focus on parent engagement.� This pilot program is funded through the CanadaSaskatchewan Early Learning and Child Care Agreement, found at

and-media/2018/march/16/ early-learning-and-child-care, which runs until 2020. This agreement provides nearly $41 million in funding to Saskatchewan toward accessibility, inclusivity and quality in early learning and child care. To apply in Regina, visit To apply in Saskatoon, visit

It can also cause paranoia, drowsiness, distorted perception and a sense of disorientation – all of which could cause you to lose control at the wheel. Mixing drugs and alcohol increases impairment even more. If you think police won’t be able to tell if you’re driving while high, think again. Weaving within a lane, following a vehicle too closely, making unsafe turns – these can all be indications that a driver is high. Marijuana can also be detected by odor and by the driver’s physical appearance – including dilated pupils, poor balance and coordination. If the police suspect that a driver is impaired by a drug or alcohol or a combination of both, they can make a demand that the driver take a standardized ďŹ eld sobriety test at roadside. If the oďŹƒcer has reasonable grounds to believe that a driver is impaired by a drug, they can make a demand that the driver submit

to an evaluation conducted by a Drug Recognition Evaluator (DRE). “Drug Recognition Evaluators undergo extensive training and use a rigorous, scientiďŹ c 12-step procedure in performing the evaluation,â€? said Cpl. Brian Ferguson, Provincial DRE Training Coordinator. “The evaluation must show impairment, signs and symptoms consistent with one or more drug categories, and the evaluator’s ďŹ ndings must be supported by the toxicology.â€? More and more police in Saskatchewan are being trained to recognize signs of impairment from drugs. There are currently 74 DREcertiďŹ ed oďŹƒcers in the province, with 20 to 40 new ofďŹ cers trained each year. But will these tests hold up in court? Absolutely. Drug recognition evaluations have been accepted by Canadian courts as legally binding evidence in impaired driving cases for many years. So, don’t drive high. It’s not worth it and you’re going to get caught. Impaired

drivers in Saskatchewan face some of the toughest administrative sanctions in the country, with immediate licence suspensions and vehicle seizures at roadside. Upon conviction, further penalties imposed by the courts may include ďŹ nes, jail time and long-term driving restrictions. Follow these tips to keep you and yours safe: Be a Good Wingman – don’t let impaired friends drive. Don’t drive high – weed increases your chances of getting into a collision and when combined with alcohol, impairment increases signiďŹ cantly. Plan a safe ride home – impaired driving is 100% preventable. Remember – it is illegal to operate any kind of motor vehicle while impaired by any substance. Police are trained to check for and recognize drug impairment. Hashtag alert! A ticket you’ll WANT to get While police will be looking for impaired drivers

throughout August, some will also be handing out “positive tickets� to drivers who aren’t impaired. Any driver who receives one can post a picture of it on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and use the hashtag #CareAboutImpaired to be eligible to win one of 25 $150 Visa gift cards. This is one of five new impaired driving initiatives being piloted in Saskatchewan this month. #HowAreYouGettingHome Our friends at MADD Canada are partnering with a number of organizations to raise awareness over the August long weekend on the dangers of impaired driving. You can be a part of the conversation by following @Sask0804 on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and using the hashtag #HowAreYouGettingHome.

Provincial Physician Recruitment Agency moving to Saskatchewan Health Authority Saskatchewan is taking steps to ensure that access to physician services continues to be a high priority, particularly in rural and remote communities. The Physician Recruitment Agency of Saskatchewan transitioned to the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) on July 23. The agency focuses on recruitment and retention of physicians and health care professionals in Saskatchewan and uses the saskdocs and HealthCareersinSask websites as tools to connect them with current opportunities in the province. This transition will build on saskdocs’ good work, helping align recruitment

eorts with the SHA’s physician resource planning and ensure that physicians are practising in communities where they are most needed. To facilitate continuity and ongoing connections with key partners, a number of current board members will have the opportunity to continue serving in an advisory capacity following the transfer - a further example of the province’s commitment to recruitment and retention eorts. “People in rural, northern, and urban communities throughout the province continue to have better access to physician care,â€? Rural and Remote Health Minister Greg Ottenbreit said.

“The efforts of saskdocs, along with other recruitment and retention initiatives introduced by our government, have resulted in 900 more licensed doctors and 3,700 more nurses in Saskatchewan than in 2007.�

There will also be a continued focus on retention and recruitment of other valued health professionals. The transfer will include Health Careers in Saskatchewan, which focuses on recruitment of other health profes-

sionals and is also operated by the agency. Future doctors and health professionals will continue to see the saskdocs and Health Careers in Saskatchewan names, as they ďŹ nd employment in the province. The strength of saskdocs has been its member organizations, including: - Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association; - Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities; - College of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan; - Saskatchewan Health Authority; - Saskatchewan Medical Association; - medical residents and students;

- Ministry of Immigration and Career Training; and - Ministry of Health. “We are pleased to welcome these sta into our organization to ensure a more consistent, co-ordinated approach to recruitment,â€? SHA Chief Executive OfďŹ cer Scott Livingstone said. “With this move, the SHA will be better positioned to ensure the people we serve receive high-quality and timely care regardless of where they live.â€? The transfer follows a review of the agency, which was recommended by the Advisory Panel on Health System Structure in 2016.

Sask Sisterhood road trip empowers women

continued from page 2 house a home, respectively getting the advice of mothers who have successfully raised their children. They spoke of feeling inadequate and the importance to take the time to honour oneself with guilt free time, that having a bath in the middle of the afternoon should be guilt free for a hardworking woman. “We all have four common traits, we want to be wanted, we need to be needed, we need to be loved and we want to feel important!� Shawna expressed. “We all

have that in common!â€? The women of various ages shared some of their daily struggles, the art of communication and even how to protect yourself from feeling invalid. It’s fair to mention that a lot of the talk was ďŹ lled with laughter and jokes as the group got more comfortable with each other, including a hilarious speedo reference that left the remaining ladies in stitches, as they say, ending the event just right. “A group of fascinating ladies showed up, hiked,

shared space, shared stories, supported each other in sisterhood in a matter of knowing each other for only a few hours,â€? Shawna expressed. “(This) was a great hike and while we adventured o and didn’t complete Beaver Trail, it only means we shall reconnect to hike Beaver Trail another time! Thank you to Amanda and her GG team for her genuine, honest, committed, kindness to holding space for women empowerment!â€? Making her way to Yorkton, Tisdale, Carrot River, Nipawin, Lloydminster, Sas-

katoon and Humboldt communities, Amanda will touch on different topics as each event takes place. Asking questions, sharing knowledge and targeting the areas that women struggle with in life are what will make this road trip a success and an event that will be the start of events to come by like-minded women. “I am thrilled by the turnout of our Kenosee Lake hiking event! Shawna MacDougall hosted a beautiful afternoon for women to walk, chat and connect. I

truly felt at home here, with every woman welcoming me with a hug or smile; my cheeks were sore from laughing within the first hour,� Amanda gleamed. “The women here are so open, generous, kind and’s the best combo! Their willingness to show up and have honest conversations is admirable. A big thank you to Shawna, and each woman that attended!� To learn how you can take part in spreading goodness in the world or just within your community or to purchase
