White Bear man creates a touching tribute By David Willberg Paul Twietmeyer was looking for a way to create a tribute to frontline workers who have remained at their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic, despite the potential risk. The White Bear resident has created a mural that now hangs on the outside wall of the Carlyle Memorial Hall. Its message is simple: ”Thank You Frontline Workers,” with the face of a person wearing a mask. In an email to the Observer, Twietmeyer said he decided to work on the mural because he was reading some of the rather misleading and selfish posts people often see on the internet, and some biased news reports. The various comments made him angry. Far too many people were criticizing medical professionals and governments for asking the public to wear masks or get vaccinated, he said. “How many of these

people actually stop to think about all the nurses, teachers, store and shop workers, all aspects of medical assistance staff that willingly risk their own health to serve all of us daily?” he asks. He thought that one small way he could draw attention to the lack of respect and appreciation is to offer that message of thanks he believes we should all have. “I know most people feel this way but maybe a wake-up call for those who don’t, can be expressed in my artwork,” he said. Twietmeyer said the mural looks good on the building, because it draws people’s attention without being obtrusive. “That was the whole idea, was just to be a little bit thankful, instead of complaining all the time,” said Twietmeyer. It wasn’t a time-consuming project, either, as it likely took five or six hours. The people who have discussed the mural with him have provided very positive feedback.

Paul Twietmeyer of White Bear has created this tribute to frontline workers that is now located on the Carlyle Memorial Hall. Photo submitted He’s surprised with the response the mural has generated. “I wasn’t doing it to be a hero, it’s just something that was always on my mind, and I finally got around to making the mural just to express my feelings,” said Twietmeyer. Twietmeyer has painted lots of murals

over the years. With the Cornerstone Theatre Group, he’s been involved with painting backdrops and other scenery for those plays. He doesn’t have a degree in fine arts, but art does go with his work as a draftsman. “I’ve been an artist my whole life. Ever since I was a little, I’ve been

painting sceneries and pictures. I’ve been doing a lot of landscape painting,” he said. His sister-in-law is a retired nurse, and he has a lot of friends who are nurses, teachers and other front-line workers. “Teachers often get left out of the picture. Their job is extremely important,” said Twiet-


meyer. There are so many people who have to be at work and offering their services, and taking more risks than the rest of us. “We need as many people to be positive as possible about all of the workers that are involved in this,” said Twietmeyer.

New owner takes over Norm’s Place By Laura Kish After 27 years, four months and two days, it’s time for Norm and Karen Jones to move on. New owner Andrew Farnham of Regina has purchased the establishment and took over on April 1. “We were in Moose Jaw for 13 years and moved to Regina just last year and deciding what we were going to do next,” explains Farnham of his plans. “I bought this place because I don’t want to be in the city,” said Farnham “I love to be in a small community. I looked at several places before I settled on this one. I like the feel of it.” “It had good numbers,” says Farnham “It’s a good business and it’ll do well.” “Norm’s Place is an excel- Andrew Farnham, Karen and Norm Jones.

They are thankful to have had such good customer support and good staff over the years. They say they’ll miss the people and some of the special events such as Name that Tune and the golf tournaments. They were a lot of work but also a lot of fun. “I shed more than a few tears,” says Norm Jones. “I can’t lie.”

Friends indeed for Moose Mountain Lodge By Deb Andrew Did you know about a small but mighty group of people who not only care about what happens to the residents of Moose Mountain Lodge, but truly make time to help them in many ways? This group not only exists but is open to new members wanting to join their team. Friends of Moose Mountain Lodge came together in 2014 with the mission statement “to enhance the everyday lives of the residents.” Enhancing a person’s life can be a tall order, but for the 42

residents of the lodge it is all the little things that count. The group bought fruit twice a month, purchased flowers to welcome new residents, held family barbecues and even did some upgrades to the back patio of the facility, adding to various decorations to make it feel homier. Something the residents have genuinely enjoyed throughout the cold winter months is towel warmers the group purchased for the tub rooms. What a special touch! Even a simple Christmas tree for each resident on Christmas morning brings joy

and good cheer. “We have had generous donations from many groups. Some are our local Lions club, our local legion and donations from families in memory of residents. We really appreciate these funds to keep our projects going,” Bertha Isleifson shared. Keeping residents safe from COVID 19 was a main focus as the team struggled to do a few things, but staying within the guidelines set out by the Saskatchewan Health Authority has helped them figure out some things that will really brighten the long days of the residents.

Christmas 2020 saw the Bits and Pieces Quilt Club join with the Friends of Moose Mountain and the lodge staff to make 42 quilts, one for each resident. Barb Weber added her talent to the mix donating a quilt as well. “We are waiting for the day that we can do more things for the residents, and if anyone would like to join our little group or make a donation it would be greatly appreciated,” Isleifson said. “And a special thank you to Christy Jarvis for all the work she has done for our group, you will be missed.”

Emergency services in Arcola resume Emergency services at the Arcola Health Centre have resumed. After a review by a structural engineer, it has been determined the damage in the entrance area of the emergency department of the health centre does not present a safety concern. Lab, x-ray, inpatient and ambulatory care services were not affected by this disruption. The Saskatchewan Health Authority an-

nounced Monday that there would be a temporary disruption to emergency services at the health centre over concerns about the structural integrity of the emergency room entrance. The temporary disruption happened after an ambulance collided with a support structure at the entrance area of the emergency department at the Arcola Health Centre.


Many of you don't know that our company can look after all of your electrical and plumbing needs.

Quote of the Week... “Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.” - Eleanor Roosevelt

Government must rise to challenges By Murray Mandryk If you are continually losing battles in politics, maybe you are picking the wrong fights. Or at least, maybe you are picking the wrong approach. Those of you who follow Saskatchewan politics will recognize how this has done in the New Democratic Party (NDP). For decades, the NDP (and its forerunner, the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation) was the natural governing party in this province for three basic reasons. First, coming out of the Great Depression and the Second World War, a destitute rural-based Saskatchewan was more inclined to accept its social democratic philosophy, bolstered by the co-operative movement. Second, NDP governments did find ways to, in later years, adjust philosophies just enough to maintain a big tent that could accommodate the more freeenterprise-minded. And, third, Liberals and the Progressive Conservatives in this province usually split the right-of-centre vote at election time. Then along came the merger of the provincial Liberals and Progressive Conservatives in the late 1990s into the new Saskatchewan Party – a home for business and rural people that long felt abandoned by the NDP. Rather than change and evolve, the NDP has maintained its philosophies. In fact, under the leadership of current leader Ryan Meili, they seem even more firmly entrenched in a left-wing perspective that rural, and the much of the rest of Saskatchewan, has long-ago abandoned. This is a cautionary tale for any political movement … perhaps even the Saskatchewan Party. Let us be clear that it’s unlikely the same fate awaits the Sask. Party juggernaut, at least not any time soon. However, there was a time not so very long ago when many assumed this could never happen to the NDP, either. But the NDP slowly began losing some battles, even when it seemed to be on the right side of some issues like the fight over the National Energy Program. That scenario might sound a bit familiar today as Premier Scott Moe’s government is also now losing battles with the federal government. Of course, losing the carbon tax fight before the Supreme Court of Canada isn’t exactly hurting the Sask. Party government’s popularity. The tax is rightly seen for what it is — something unlikely to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It just hasn’t proven to be effective policy. What Moe offered as an alternative — at-thepump rebates similar modelled after New Brunswick — was something the Sask. Party said was unworkable when it was introduced in that province more than a year ago. What shouldn’t be lost in this conversation is that the reason Saskatchewan lost in the courts (it also lost at the local federal Court of Appeal level) is the courts’ recognition that manmade global warning is a reality. To not offer something — to not compromise at least at little until legally forced to do — is to be too rigid. And being too rigid in its beliefs and approach Is become a familiar Sask. Party government pattern. When the Grant Devine PCs came to power in 1982 with the biggest majority in the province’s history, many thought it would last forever. In less than a decade, the PC government became massively unpopular because of its daily handling of issues and its rigid approach to things like privatization. Governments can only afford to lose so many fights.

To colour or not to colour

Shelley Luedtke Year after year I was determined to make it happen for my daughters. Boil the eggs. Cover the table in plastic. Fill bowls with water and vinegar. Set out an array of spoons and tongs. Get the food coloring ready. Wrap the kids in aprons and begin the fun. Colouring Easter eggs is one of those activities that, for me, was considerably less fun than people made it out to be. It’s like S’mores. In theory I should really enjoy them. What’s not to love about chocolate and marshmallows sandwiched between graham wafers? But for whatever reason, somewhere between idea and execution it just falls flat for me. But each year we undertook the task of colouring eggs because…well…that’s what we’re supposed to do. We helped our girls Group Publisher Gordon Brewerton Administration Dolores Young Regional Editor David Willberg

as they created their colorful eggs to be nestled in the plastic grass in the basket that held their handiwork. They had fun, and that’s what mattered. To be honest, for me it was like gingerbread houses or carving pumpkins—something I felt I had to do to fulfill the requirements of the season, much more so than something I looked forward to actually doing. So one year I decided to approach it a bit differently. Since I was of little joy in colouring eggs, I let daddy handle that task solo while I put my effort into something else. I created treasure hunts using Bible verses that led our daughters to their baskets on Easter Sunday. Each year he helped with the eggs and I would put new hunts together. They loved it. So did I. The result can be pretty great when the right person fills the right role. The time spent thinking we need to live up to other’s expectations is time taken away from doing what we actually like, or are good at. One analyst said pleasing others is like chasing a moving target. If we are trying to live up to other’s expectations, we are essentially living someone else’s life. It follows then, that frustration is what fills the gap between what you think people expect

you to do and what you actually want to do. Who needs that? Sarah was a new student at the high school where my husband and I worked, and she was curious about the musical we were directing. She asked what sort of behind-the-scenes things she could help with, but it seemed there was something else she wanted to talk about so I encouraged her to come out and audition. We had all students sing for us, even if they weren’t pursuing a role, because we had often been able to encourage reluctant students to take on small roles or be in the chorus. They just needed to be supported to dip their toe in the pool. Sarah had experienced discouragement about singing and was told not to waste her time. She was pulled in other directions and felt obligated to live up to other people’s hopes. She tried other things again and again because she didn’t want to disappoint, but you could tell it took its toll on her. Sarah stood in front of us, took and deep breath and launched into an audition that gave me goosebumps. Within a few bars I knew we had one of our leading ladies. Not having sung in public or shown interest in the

school’s music program, it was a revelation that someone could have kept such talent under the radar. But she did, until she was ready to defy the expectations others had placed on her. Sarah was fantastic. She wowed the audience and went on to win the Most Promising Novice Award. She told me later she felt she found her place and thanked us for letting her pursue what she’d been nervous to because it didn’t fit what people expected of her. We felt fortunate she was willing to push past all of that because she was an important piece of the show. The result can be pretty great when the right person surprises in the right role. The doors that others may want us to walk through will feel like we’re pushing against concrete if it’s not tapping into our talents, but they’ll more easily swing open if we let our abilities lead the way. The key is not letting anyone else dictate what we should be doing. So sing, lead, train, run, paint, write, study or take a pass on all of it, including coloring eggs, in favor of a better fit. Wonderful things happen when we give ourselves the freedom to fill the right role. That’s my outlook.

Oxbow’s school shifted to remote learning Students at the Oxbow Prairie Horizons School spent the final week before spring break learning remotely. In an email, the South East Cornerstone Public School Division said the school, one of the largest in the division, would shift to remote learning from March 30 to April 1. In-person learning is scheduled to return on April 12, following spring break. March 29 was a transition day, as staff prepared to move to online delivery. Synchronous learning schedules were

shared with families and students on Monday as well. There are no scheduled classes for the prekindergarten children. The Grade 6 class, already on remote learning, had classes online Monday as they had their transition day earlier. There have been four people in the school while infectious, said director of education Lynn Little. Extensive contact tracing has occurred with those four cases. The Saskatchewan Health Authority has declared an outbreak at the

school. There needs to be at least two cases for an outbreak to be declared. The situation at the school is part of a recent increase in COVID-19 cases in the area. Oxbow Mayor Dale Pierce said everyone is taking the situation in the town seriously due to the increase in cases, possibly more seriously than at any point in the pandemic. “Now that it is in Oxbow, in multiple numbers, I think everybody’s realized just how fast it can spread and how important it is to follow the

guidelines,” said Pierce. The town hasn’t been supplied with any details about the first case, including the exact date of diagnosis. Nor have they been told how many cases have been diagnosed in the town. The town office and the RM of Enniskillen office have been closed to the public until further notice. Pierce said they will remain closed until the town’s caseload is under control. All public

buildings, including the Memorial Hall and the Oxbow Public Library, are also closed. The library will still be available for curbside pick-up services. The town’s museum and friendship centre are closed, as are some facilities not operated by the town, such as a fitness centre and the Expressway Family Centre. The Memorial Hall includes a few businesses and a dance studio that

rent space in there, and it’s a meeting place for the air cadets, the archery club and two karate clubs. “It has affected quite a few people,” said Pierce. Outdoor parks are open, but the town encourages extra caution and ongoing sanitization of hands. Public Health held a mobile COVID testing clinic at the Memorial Hall on March 26.

Oil Kings online auction raises over $10,000 By Laura Kish It’s this time of year that the Kipling-Windthorst Oil Kings usually hold their annual Sportsman Dinner and Auction and Awards Night. Sure it’s a fundraiser, but it’s also a night out and a time for visiting friends, and people are missing out on some of that community spirit lately. For the second year in a row, the Oil Kings had to cancel this event due to COVID-19 restrictions. In place of the Sportsman’s Dinner this year, fundraising for the club came in the form of an online auction which was organized by Oil Kings president Geoff Hewson and Makyla Stender. The auction ran from Friday to Monday, giving bidders enough time and many chances at all items up for bid. “The auction went really well,” commented Hewson. “We are very happy with how it went.” Most of the auction items that were donated went for their full value or close to it, raising more than $10,000. “We would like to thank the many companies who donated 24 items in total to our online auction,” comments Hewson. “It’s great to see the community support this event as well as they did!” comments Hewson.

This is always one of the major fundraisers for the year, besides the Oil Kings ‘Wheelbarrow of Christmas Cheer’ leading up to Christmas. Plans for the money that was raised is going towards a number of things. “First off is to put some towards league fees and assorted team expenses to help us get through this year where we went without any real revenue,” explains Hewson. The Big Six Hockey League lost a major sponsor this year which upped the league fees quite a bit, and some of the money will go towards insurance, equipment and things of that nature. “We don’t want our players to spend a whole lot of money to play senior hockey,” says Hewson. “It’s already a time commitment and a bit of a physical risk every time they step on the ice.” Hockey fans and players alike are looking forward to the opportunity to resume play this upcoming season.

Manor School students have been busy The students at Manor School have been busy recently, enjoying a number of different activities. On March 30, the students in Grades 1-6 enjoyed a virtual presentation from the Earth Rangers. Vermillion Energy sponsored the presentation for the students.

The Earth Rangers is the kids conservation organization, committed to instilling environmental knowledge, positivity and the confidence to take action among every child in Canada. Programs show children that it’s not too late to help the planet and the things they do today

will matter in the future. Students have also been studying the robotics and automation modules of the practical and applied arts course. As part of this course, students learn the basics of coding and experiment with block coding using digital software.

Information-technology consultant Grant Taylor was approached to see what technologies he could bring into the classroom to allow the students an opportunity to try them out first-hand. On his first visit, the students had an opportunity to explore with Microbits and

learn about Ozobots. Using the Microbits, the students built their own interactive devices. Spheros are programmable robots that allow students to create using coding. The students enjoyed programming their Spheros to navigate a racecourse.

Alida news - the winter storm has passed Submitted by Edel Cowan The Alida community extends condolences to the families of the Ball family on the death of their Uncle Donald Curtis, late of Reston, Man., who passed away on March 21 at the age of 96 years. He was predeceased by his wife Jennetta (Ball), son Morley and brother Ross. He is survived by his daughter Beth and two grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews. A private graveside service will be held at Reston Cemetery. The Alida community extends sincere sympathy to Ray Kyle and family on the death of his wife Donelda (nee Brown) on March 24 at the age of 69 years. She is survived by her husband Ray, sons Sheldon (Ella), Lyndon (Karmen) and four grandchildren, as well as her siblings,

Ray’s siblings, and numerous nieces and nephews. A funeral mass will be held April with interment at a later date. I do believe spring has sprung – most of the snow has melted away, and boy is it ever dry. Not much runoff this year and most sloughs have very little water in them or dried up. The wildlife will be short of water too. I have seen some geese flying over, but not sure if they will stick around this spring or not. Before one knows it the green grass, pussy willows, leaves and even the wildflowers will begin to peek out from their homes. It is one of the nicest times of the year. Just noticed the pussy willows are out. We have come to the end of another month and I must say that March seemed to be going out like a lion (according to the weather forecast). Although a

spring storm was predicted to be here for a couple of days, I didn’t really want a storm, but what can we do? However, I guess one really shouldn’t complain about a little snow and wind as we have had a very nice winter. I don’t like that wind and I would have preferred that we receive some

rain, which is very much needed. Hopefully next time the moisture will be in the form of rain. When this comes out in print it will be the first weekend in April – a long weekend, which will turn into spring break for students and staff. Enjoy your holidays everyone. Hopefully no one had an April

Fool’s trick played on them. And a Happy Easter to everyone. Please remember folks to keep me posted whenever you have news – simply contact me anytime. Either call me at 306-443-2496, text 306-485-8561 or e-mail g.cowan@sasktel.net on the happenings that are going on in and around

Alida as well as within your own family circle. I will see that your news gets into a paper. As we keep moving slowly forward do continue to keep a safe distance and wear your mask and stay safe. I do appreciate all your input as it does help keep this column interesting.

Good Friday and the Legend of the Little Barrel By Ken Rolheiser In the French Medieval Tale The Legend of the Little Barrel, we find a character who may resemble us in ways that may make us uneasy. This lord of a great castle was rich and handsome, and he feared no king, prince or royalty. He was also vain, cruel and proud. He feared no God. He observed no fasting or abstinence and attended no mass. He heard no sermons and was ruthless in his financial dealings. Good Friday found him shouting to his cooks to prepare a feast of game hunted the previous day. His knights cautioned him, since it was Good Friday,

that he should abstain from meat and go to confession, so as not to offend God. He declined. “At least accompany us to the hermit-priest’s cave where we will seek penance,” his knights pleaded. He agreed and they made for the hermit’s cave. The Lord stayed outside with the horses while the knights sought confession. The hermit invited the lord to come in so they could converse. Once inside the hermit proceeded boldly: “Sir, consider thyself my prisoner. Kill me if thou wishest, but I shall not freely let thee go from hence before thou hast told me all thy sins.” The Lord refused. The hermit insisted: “Tell me just one sin, and God will help thee confess

the others.” Swearing, the Lord barked, “I will confess. But I shall repent of nothing, absolutely nothing!” With mighty arrogance, he told all the sins of his stormy life at one fell swoop. In order to be forgiven the French lord was assigned a penance, which he refused. The hermit gave him a simpler penance of one good deed he could not refuse. “Take this little barrel to the nearby brook, fill it with water, and return it to me.” The lord went to the brook and dipped the barrel under the water, but not a drop would enter. The hermit explained that even a child could fill the small barrel. It must be because of

his unrepentance. In frustration the Lord set out alone to travel all the world to find water to fill the tiny barrel. Only his guardian angel and God accompanied him. He crossed mountains and valleys and strode through brambles. He suffered cold and hunger, all to no avail. Finally he returned to the hermit on another Good Friday. The lord was hardly recognizable, so gaunt and frail. He was still unrepentant. The hermit began to weep. “O God, look upon this creature Thou hast made and that so madly gambles with his soul. Shouldst Thou have to choose between the two of us, unleash Thy wrath upon me, but save this creature.” The Lord was moved.

“Make me repentant, O God, so that this holy man may have at least the consolation of my contrition. I beg Thee, forgive me for everything of which I am guilty!” His contrition was so deep that his eyes began to fill with tears. A large teardrop spilled from his eye, ran down his face, and fell right into the little barrel that still hung about his neck. Lo, that single tear was enough to fill the barrel to its very brim. It was a sign that God had forgiven him his sins. The lord confessed again all his life’s sins and wept abundantly. He received Holy Communion, and fell into the hermits arms. Light filled the chapel as angels descended to accompany him to heaven.

Wawota weekly news - fundraiser was a success Submitted by Myrna Olson Happy belated 90th birthday to Gwen Groves, who is Garry Dickson's sister. She was 90 on March 18. As a special surprise, her family encouraged oth-

er family members and friends to send cards. She received 96 cards (and messages) and still counting. Born to Sheldon and Denise Van Eaton of Maryfield, a daughter on March 20. She weighed seven pounds,

11 ounces, and has been named Alyse Violet. She is a sister for George and Lia, and a granddaughter for Denis and Freda Cuddington and John and Denise Van Eaton. She is also a great-granddaughter for Mabel Van Eaton

Farmers, truckers and vets Several unexpected items inspired this week’s column, specifically, two opportunities to provide tributes for friends and a meaningful post on Facebook. Although Facebook is a dubious way to spend time or energy, an acquaintance here in town shared the following exhortation (wording may not be exact but the meaning is): “If you’re eating, thank a farmer, if there’s food on your table, thank a trucker, and if you’re eating in peace, thank a war veteran.” Both writing welldeserved tributes to friends and mulling over

the exhortation, got me meditating a lot this week. (Just to make the process easier and even more meaningful, I did a lot of that musing down by the beach with a cup of Tim Hortons tea in hand). Again, I hesitated to write on this theme since it’s not a new one for me over this past year but the settings definitely were. Farmers have always epitomized, to me, the meaning of toil and dedication. Long hours, incredibly hard work and now, new expenses, but I won’t comment on that. My father was a long-distance trucker so I

Linda Wegner Words of Worth know about weeks spent away from home. To all those drivers who haul food and other goods across Canada and international borders, your long and lonely hours are appreciated. When it comes to vets, I have no words to express my deep gratitude so I won’t even attempt to do that except to say, “Thank you from the depth of my being.”

Those tributes to friends were difficult only because I couldn’t think of enough kind things to say within a limited time and/or word count. Much of my musing, however, involved deliberately trying to name those “unsung heroes” we too often forget. “Lord, don’t let me forget those who work behind the scenes day after day.” God bless you!

age of 91 years. He was the husband of the late Joan (Birnie) Hambley. The Wawota United Church held their annual Time and Talent fundraiser last week. Due to the virus, it was all online. There was a great selection of donations and the bidding was brisk. Over $4,000 was raised from the sale and monetary donations were $700. The RTR group were busy on the weekend with their pies (pre-ordered) and jam sales. They sold 200 pies. Angie Werner had a successful bake sale online last weekend. She was soon sold out of all contributed baking. The proceeds with go towards expenses incurred

Several residents have been receiving their COVID shots. Some travelled as far as Regina. Several others have had their appointments moved to a later date.

Saskatchewan promotes Line 5 pipeline’s significance

Saskatchewan Energy and Resources Minister Bronwyn Eyre appeared before the House of Commons Special Committee on the Economic Relationship between Canada and the United States on the importance of the Enbridge Line 5 pipeline for Saskatchewan. "Line 5 is a crucial energy lifeline for Saskatchewan and Western Canadian oil and natural gas producers," Eyre said. "Michigan's move to shut it down would have a serious impact on North American energy security and Canada's economic relationship with the United States." Last November, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer revoked the pipeline's 1953 easement through the Straits of Mackinac and ordered it closed by May 12, 2021. A legal challenge by Enbridge

and mediation process are currently underway. Approximately 70 per cent of Saskatchewan’s total oil production is exported through the Enbridge Mainline pipeline system, which runs from Edmonton, through Saskatchewan, to Superior, Wisc. There, it connects to Line 5, which goes through Michigan and crosses the U.S.-Canada border to Sarnia, Ont. Line 5, which moves up to 540,000 barrels per day of light crude oil and natural gas liquids, is a critical piece of energy infrastructure for American states in the Great Lakes region, as well as for Ontario and Quebec. Without it, refineries in those provinces would have to increase reliance on trucking, crude-by-rail and oil imports, which would lead to heavier international tanker traffic, including along

the St. Lawrence Seaway. "A decision to shut down Line 5 would raise energy costs for Canadians and affect everything from home heating rates and propane for barbecues to grain-drying costs and Pearson International Airport's fuel supply," Eyre said. "There would also be a significant impact on heating and transportation costs in Michigan and surrounding states, some of which are against this proposed shut-down." In 2020, Saskatchewan exported $109 million in goods to Michigan and imported $137 million. The cross-partisan House of Commons Special Committee was struck on Feb. 16, 2021, and is expected to deliver an interim report on the importance of the Enbridge Line 5 pipeline no later than April 15.
