Rollover west of Radisson claims life A 26-year-old female died early Sunday evening after the vehicle she was a passenger in lost control and rolled west of Radisson. Warman RCMP said the vehicle, an eastbound BMW SUV, was carrying five occupants at the time of the crash. Investigators believe the SUV veered into the north ditch and rolled numerous times before coming to a stop. The remaining four occupants, two men, a woman and a female youth sustained non life-threatening injuries. Firefighters and EMS from the Battlefords assisted the RCMP at the site of the mishap which was reported at 7:49 p.m. The name of the victim is not being released at the request of the family. An RCMP collision analyst attended the scene to determine the exact cause of the rollover and no charges have been laid. Traffic on Highway 16 was restricted for several hours to allow police to investigate and emergency crews to clean up.

Census shows Saskatchewan getting younger

TUESDAYS

New census data released this week shows that Saskatchewan is bucking the national trend and getting younger. As the Canadian population ages, Saskatchewan is the only province that saw its median age and percentage of seniors get lower between 2006 and 2011. According to results released by Statistics Canada, Saskatchewan was the only province whose median age got younger between 2006 and 2011, dropping from 38.7 to 38.2. Saskatchewan now has the second lowest median age in Canada, behind only Alberta. The Canadian average median age increased from 39.5 to 40.6. The percentage of seniors in the province, 65 and over, dropped from 15.4 per cent of the population in 2006, to 14.9 per cent in 2011. This brought Saskatchewan down from the highest percentage of seniors in 2006 to the fourth lowest percentage in 2011.

Heppner looking forward to new Cabinet role after shuffle By TERRY PUGH

N

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

ancy Heppner is glad to be back in the provincial Cabinet. Heppner was appointed Minister of Central Services on Friday, May 25, as part of a major cabinet shuffle unveiled by Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall. She had previously served as Environment Minister when the government was first elected in 2007. “It feels good to be back,” said Heppner in an interview after being sworn in at a special session in the Legislature. “Two years ago, I had asked for a break from Cabinet and the Premier granted that request. Now I’m honoured he has shown confidence in me and I’m really looking forward to working with this new cabinet group.” Heppner said the portfolio she has been appointed to is a

new one that combines a number of different areas. “It’s a new agency that is in charge of all the things the government owns,” she explained. “That includes all the property, the buildings, the vehicles, that sort of thing. I also have responsibility for the Public Service Commission, which is all the public service employees that work for the provincial government.” Another major government item she has on her plate is the “Lean Initiative” which was formerly under the jurisdiction of June Draude. “The Lean Initiative is all about finding ways to be more efficient and do things better,” said Heppner. “That could involve things like cost savings where possible. But the overall objective is to provide a better outcome for taxpayers.” Continued on Page 5 Please see “HEPPNER”

Clark’s Crossing Road campaign gets rolling By TERRY PUGH

A

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

grassroots fundraising campaign is underway to cover the cost of 8 new road signs designating Township Road 381 as Clark’s Crossing Road. The road signs are being installed by the RM of Corman Park, and are expected to cost about $2,000. The RM is covering the up front expenses to produce the signs, and its public works department personnel will be putting the signs up in the next few weeks. The RM will be reimbursed for the cost of the signs by the Clark’s Crossing History Group (CCHG), a committee of local residents of the historic Clark’s Crossing district north of Saskatoon. According to Margaret Hein-Wiebe, a member of the CCHG and a long-time resident of the district, the group is looking for financial contributions from businesses and

individuals who want to help preserve an important piece of local history. The group got its start last winter, when Hein-Wiebe and her neighbor, Walter Bartsch, sought approval from the RM of Corman Park council to designate Township Road 381 as Clark’s Crossing Road. The council unanimously approved the request. The road will continue to have its numbered designation as well as its new name. The named portion of the road will extend from Highway 12 eastward to Range Road 3052. The signs are a way of acknowledging the historic community of Clark’s Crossing, located just south of where the current Pioneer Grain terminal now stands on the CN rail line. Clark’s Crossing was named for John Fowler Clark, who operated the first ferry on the South Saskatchewan River in the area, beginning in 1881. The Clark’s Crossing siding

had a train station, post office, general store and loading platform which existed from 1902 until the mid-1950s. “We feel it’s very important to preserve the history of this local area, and to honour the contributions of Mr. Clark and the many farm families that developed this district,” said Hein-Wiebe in an interview May 25. “The City of Saskatoon is rapidly expanding northward, and Township Road 381 is now the north boundary of the city’s planning option. If we don’t preserve the name, it will eventually be forgotten.” Hein-Wiebe said a meeting was held May 8 to form the organizing committee for the fundraising campaign. She, Walter Bartsch, and Shayne Grieve were elected to the CCHG steering committee to coordinate the fundraising and educational effort. A bank account to accept financial donations has now been set

up for the CCHG at the BMO in Lawson Heights Mall in Saskatoon. The committee is currently distributing a letter to local businesses in the district, and is confident they can reach their goal by mid-September. The letter invites involvement from local businesses in the flourishing area, noting that donations of $250 or more will be publically acknowledged. The fundraising campaign is also aimed at covering the cost of an historic cairn and plaque, which will be erected on the site of the former Clark’s Crossing siding. Hein-Wiebe said the cost of the cairn is expected to be between $3000 and $3500. “We’re about a year away from erecting the cairn and plaque, because we’re working with the Saskatchewan HeriContinued on Page 5 Please see “CROSSING”

SaskPower transmission line route heads into final stages By TERRY PUGH

T

he route for the 40 meter-wide centerline of a new 230 kilovolt (kV) electrical transmission line connecting switching stations at Aberdeen and Martensville, and a 138-kV line from Martensville to Saskatoon is about 3 months away from being finalized, as consultations with landowners and municipalities are still underway, according to Bernie Bolen with SaskPower. “We’re taking into account all the areas of concern that have been raised so far, and we’re working to mitigate those concerns and find the best compromise,” said Bolen in an interview May 23. “Our options are a bit limited in the area from the river to Martensville, but we’re still doing survey work and trying to address the constraints through discussions with the municipalities and landowners.” Bolen said the Saskatoon North and East Reinforcement project is one of several in the province that are aimed at replacing aging infrastructure that dates back to the 1950s. The upgrades are necessary in order to keep up with the increasing demand for power resulting from residential, commercial and industrial growth in Saskatchewan. Because of the densely-populated area north of Saskatoon, particularly in the fast-growing part of Corman Park near Martensville, conflicts are likely inevitable. But Bolen said even though some people may not be satis-

fied with the final outcome, he is hopeful that people will feel the process was fair. “We have made every effort to talk to everyone and provided ample opportunities for feedback,” he said. “We try to design and engineer into the project as many of those considerations as we possibly can. We have public open houses, we have ongoing consultations, we invite letters, we have a place for feedback on our website, our project team people hand out their business cards with phone numbers and e-mail addresses to people, and we have a toll free number for the project (1800-667-4749). Bolen said there are some parts of the overall project where the choice of route for the new line is relatively straightforward. “For example, on the east side of the river, the section of the 230 kV line that connects up with the Wolverine switching station will pretty much follow the route of the existing line that it replaces,” he said. “We’ve had good conversations with landowners and there is almost unanimous agreement on that section.” For other areas, where no existing line exists, it’s more complicated. Bolen said each project is unique. There is no statutory requirement for SaskPower to have three route options, he said. “The number of route options varies from project to project. On some projects we can have as many as 7 different options. With the stretch from Aberdeen to Martensville, the river crossing was problematic. It took a fair

bit of work to find a suitable place to cross the river, and that dictated where we were coming further west. But even with all the congestion in the area, we were able to maintain the full width of the mile-wide corridor, and that gives some room to maneuver when we locate the actual powerline within that corridor.” He said some landowners have suggested burying the power cable underground, but he said that option still requires easement agreements that place restrictions on landowners. In addition, it adds other potential difficulties. “Burying the cable might solve some problems, but it creates others,” he said. “It comes down to finding a balance. There is a significantly increased cost, for one thing, even on a shorter stretch through the most congested and densely-populated section.” But the biggest factor is reliability added Bolen. “It’s not as good as overhead lines,” he stated. “When a line serves tens of thousands of people, if there is a fault in an underground cable, and that does happen because those specialized, oilfilled cables don’t last forever, we get into a situation where it is more difficult to find the source of the fault. “It is also much more expensive and time-consuming and labour intensive to excavate the affected area and fix the problem. In winter, when the ground is frozen, and the time factor is a major concern, there is a significant risk involved.”

Paramedics’ role enhances community health care By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

P

aramedics are taking on an ever-expanding role, and that’s improving the health care system in communities across the country, according to Michael Nolan, President of the Emergency Medical Service Chiefs of Canada (EMSCC). “Community paramedicine is really about paramedics working in more of a primary health model,” explained Nolan in a recent interview. “In many instances paramedics have become ‘physician-extenders’ by providing outreach into the community for things like helping people manage chronic diseases and helping prevent diseases through education. It’s all about improving access to primary health care for everyone.” Nolan said there are some health regions in Canada that promote an “inter-professional model” to make the best use of available resources. Nurse practitioners and paramedics are mandated to perform tasks which they are qualified for in the absence of physicians. “The inter-professional model is really central to the concept of community paramedicine,” said Nolan. “We’re not suggesting this is the answer for everybody, but in many cases it is a good solution.” He pointed to communities in Nova Scotia where paramedics are currently staffing emergency departments during the overnight hours, enabling the local family physician to be available at the clinic or hospital during the day. This allows the community’s hospital emergency department to stay open around the clock despite having a limited number of physicians. He also said paramedics in Ontario are supporting seniors living at home. This re-

tage Association to ensure the accuracy of the information that will be on the plaque,” said Hein-Wiebe. “We’re still going through the local history archives in Saskatoon, and the historical papers from the Penner School, to make sure we have as much accurate information as possible.” Anyone interested in helping with the campaign or in making a financial donation to the project can contact Margaret Hein-Wiebe at 934-6975, Walter Bartsch at 934-6851 or Shayne Grieve at 933-1042.

Troy Davies of MD Ambulance shows school children an oxygen mask used by paramedics duces the cost of long-term care, and also cuts down on the use of 911 and hospital admissions by almost 50 per cent. Nolan said the Saskatoon Health Region’s “Health Bus” is another excellent example of bringing health care facilities into the community. “The health bus reaches into the community where people might not otherwise access primary health care as early as they should,” he said. “The health bus also allows for follow-up care on a regular basis.” Nolan said timely access to health care saves money in the long run. “We know that when somebody waits too long to access services, the recuperation time and treatment required is significantly higher than if the problem is corrected early.” Nolan said health-care systems should be measured by how well they respond to the needs of patients. “We know there are successful models, whether they’re publicly or privately delivered, “ he said. “As long as the services are delivered with the patients’ needs in mind first, that’s what counts.” Trevor Dutchak of MD

ics are recognized as professionals now, and are embracing the new role of community paramedicine. Last week, as part of EMS Week, an open house was held at the MD Ambulance office for 150 elementary school students. Davies said the day-long session was aimed at familiarizing kids with what paramedics do, and helping them overcome any fears they might have of ambulances and hospitals. MD Ambulance has several specialized ambulances including a children’s ambulance that was put in service in 2009. It has been used to transport about 200 sick kids over that time, he stated.

HEPPNER

Continued from Page 3

The broad portfolio will be challenging, but Heppner is eager to take up the task. “It’s going to involve a lot of coordination with other ministries,” she said. “The Lean Initiative is geared toward making government more efficient and using those tax dollars wisely. I think our government has a good record in that regard, as we have put forward the only balanced budget in Canada, and we want to maintain that status. So that means we have to continue to find efficiencies and be wise in our decision making.” Heppner said being appointed to the Cabinet the second time around feels different than her initial experience. “I think I’ll enjoy it more,” she explained. “Back in 2007, we were all new MLAs and a new government, and the whole experience was very unfamiliar. We didn’t really understand how everything worked. Now we know the process and procedures and we have several years of experience. So it will be much easier going into the Minister’s role. There will still be stress that comes from learning a new portfolio, but I’m glad to have the opportunity and I believe I’ll enjoy it more.” Heppner said she’s still committed to representing her constituents. “As far as I’m concerned that’s the biggest part of my job,” she said. “I represent the people who elected me. The downside of being in Cabinet is that you’re away from home even more, but I have a very capable constuency assistant and I will continue to work hard to stay in touch with my constituents.” Several top-level bureaucrats were also shuffled by the Premier, including Ron Dedman (Deputy Minister), Cam Swan (Chair of the Public Service Commission), Robert Guillume (Associate Deputy Minister responsible for Information Technology), and Don Wincherauk (Deputy Minister for Central Services).

Wall standing up for Sask. when it counts most

C O M M E N T A R Y

Local watchdogs needed too

To be a good Premier, you have understand that a Premier’s job is to represent what is best for the majority of the people in your province and execute that responsibility. It sounds simple enough, but you would be surprised how many things get in the way. For instance, self-interest/political interest always gets in the way as Premier Brad Wall found out this spring. This is pretty much why we wound up with three more MLAs in the legislature and a film industry that will likely shoot movies and TV series in Manitoba instead of places like Rouleau, Gravelbourg and Kipling. One can argue that occasionally doing the bidding of allies in the federal government instead of your people is another example of a Premier losing sight of his job. This spring, it became a lot harder for immigrants to sponsor relatives, not necessarily because that’s best for Saskatchewan but because it’s what Ottawa wanted. But while Wall has clearly had a few bad missteps this spring, he also showed he still has a pretty good grasp on what it means to be a good Premier when it matters most. Or at least, this is what a couple important national issues seem to indicate. The first example is his ongoing battle with federal NDP leader Thomas Mulcair over whether a high dollar driven by oil production is killing Canadian manufacturing. Mulcair and the NDP have been quick to criticize Wall for doing the bidding for Prime Minister Stephen Harper,

By the Canadian Taxpayers Association

As the provincial government reduced school tax bills across the province over the past few years, it seems someone has been stealing part of those savings from taxpayers – municipal governments. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation has been hearing more and more from taxpayers in various municipalities in Sask. that their local governments seem to view the drop in school tax rates as an opportunity for municipalities to swoop in and increase property taxes. So the question is – what are you going to do about it? As a non-profit organization with limited resources and a handful of staff, we do the best we can to watchdog provincial and federal issues – after all, those governments impact taxpayers province and nationwide. Sure the larger ones are easier to keep an eye on as they service large volumes of people and we’re often asked for our opinions on their questionable expenditures. The City of Toronto’s decision to audit the amount of shade in city parks is a classic example. However, it’s equally important for taxpayers in all communities to be vigilant and active. To assist people with starting up active, local taxpayer watchdog groups, the CTF came up with three documents. The first is called a Municipal Ratepayers Guide and includes information on how people can set up a local taxpayers group, and details on how to effectively push for change. The document also includes information on how to get information from the government (known as “freedom of information” requests) and details on strategies for communicating your message to local media, politicians and fellow taxpayers through tools like Facebook & Twitter. The second document is called the “Beggar’s Checklist” and it includes numerous ideas on how municipalities can reduce costs and raise revenue legitimately rather than simply hiking property taxes. Local taxpayers can go through the checklist and see if each initiative is happening in their own municipality. If all the heavy lifting hasn’t been done, their politicians shouldn’t be off begging other levels of government for more funding or hiking municipal property taxes. The document highlights initiatives such as whether or not there is unused municipal land that could be sold and developed. There are details on how municipal governments can often deliver services for less by hiring a private business to do the work rather than having someone do it in-house. Another example is the need to look at the pay gap that often exists between gov’t employees and similar positions in the private sector. The third document is called “A Property Tax Cap” and it explores recommendations on capping municipal taxing powers. The goal is to ensure that municipalities can’t simply go off and increase taxes at a rate that’s higher than what taxpayers can afford. The report also discusses reasonable user fees and the role of gov’t in general. The aforementioned documents can help you select taxpayer-friendly candidates and hold them accountable, rather those than those who are more interested in taking the easy way out and eating up your school tax savings.

MURRAY MANDRYK

Provincial Politics

something that Wall seemed to be doing on the immigration file and even the Canadian Wheat Board file. And in fairness to the NDP leader, one can certainly make a case that a high Canadian dollar isn’t helpful to the export manufacturing sector (although what seems lost in the debate is that a high dollar doesn’t help the oil sector and that a strong resource sector has been the saving grace for the entire Canadian economy). But this is one debate where there isn’t much gray area especially if you’re from Western Canada and are being asked to swallow the Mulcair implication that we’d all somehow be better off if we just shut off the Western oil taps. It’s not right to suggest that Wall is only doing Harper’s bidding when his position best suits all of us in Saskatchewan. Even if Wall wasn’t being true to his own political beliefs (and it’s interesting how New Democrats here aren’t exactly criticizing Wall’s position or even completely agreeing with Mulcair) he would still be doing what a Saskatchewan Premier should do. He is defending our key economic engine. However, a better example may be the more challenging file involving Glencore International’s takeover of Viterra Inc. While Wall might philo-

sophically believe that governments shouldn’t meddle in free-market affairs, it’s become crystal clear that the nature of this particular deal will take its toll on Viterra head office jobs in Regina. Even more significantly, there could be huge negative repercussions on the cost of fertilizers and other farm inputs stemming from a decrease in competition. Fortunately, though, these are precisely the points that Wall has been making on Viterra deal, exactly the concerns raised in the Sask. Party government’s independent report. Interestingly, that study

didn’t go into the questionable business dealings of Glencore and its former owner that included years of sanctions over illegal trading and current questions about its human rights and environmental record in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. But as disconcerting as these issues may be, a provincial Premier needs to stick to the issues specific to his jurisdiction. Wall has clearly done that, demonstrating a pretty good grasp of understanding what his responsibilities are. On these important files, he has stepped up for Saskatchewan.

Reader Opinions

Mulcair misunderstands Canada

Dear Editor: A week ago, NDP leader Thomas Mulcair started getting into hot water with ill-informed remarks about resource developments in western Canada. I thought by now he would have the sense to try to extricate himself. But not so. Instead, he’s repeating the poisonous notion that resource projects in the West – and only the West – are a “disease” doing damage to the national economy. He depicts himself as a “victim”, being “bullied” by western Premiers. And he insults Premiers Wall, Redford and Clark as “messengers” for another bully, Stephen Harper. This is astounding behaviour. It’s clearly calculated to be hurtful. Different economists have

Gazette

different views about the interaction between resource developments and the manufacturing sector. Most opinion suggests any negative impact on manufacturing is minor, and largely offset by the positive effects of resource projects on overall economic growth. But whatever economic debate there might be, there is no doubt about the political implications of what many westerners are now calling the “Mulcair disease”. Can you imagine Mr. Mulcair attacking Ontario in such a demeaning fashion? Would he ever dismiss the Premier of Quebec as he has the western Premiers? The point is clear. This man doesn’t understand the subtleties and sensitivities of Canadian nation-building.

GLOBAL HEADQUARTERS

It’s always a delicate work-inprogress. You can’t take our national cohesion for granted. And you never pit regionagainst-region, or sectoragainst-sector. This is not Mr. Mulcair’s first offence. Remember, he’s also against the Clarity Act. In any future referendum on separatism – it’s OK with him to let this country go on some fuzzy ballot-question with a margin of only 50-percentplus-one. Western elder-statesmen like Roy Romanow and the late Allan Blakeney understood how wrong this would be for Canada. They also had a long history of defending western Canada’s natural resources. Mr. Mulcair doesn’t get it. Ralph Goodale, MP Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada

Clearing the air on F18s

Dear Editor, I was disturbed to read a misleading and inaccurate letter from a Liberal MP regarding our government’s plan to replace our Canadian Armed Forces’ aging CF-18s. The assertions made by this individual in your paper are, of course, incorrect. In fact, our government has not purchased an aircraft to replace our CF-18 fleet. We are establishing a new Secretariat that will play the lead coordinating role as the government moves to make this important decision. We have been clear that we have set a budget, and we will work within that budget. Prior to signing any contracts for the purchase of any aircraft, the Treasury Board Secretariat will commission an independent re-

view of the government’s estimates - which will be made public. I was also confused that this Liberal Member of Parliament would call our investment in replacing Canada’s fighter fleet “the most expensive military procurement ever”. He knows full well that the largest military procurement in our country’s history is our commitment to renewing our Royal Canadian Navy’s vessels through the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy. These investments not only strengthen the equipment of our Canadian Armed Forces after the Liberal “decade of darkness”, but support our economy through the creation of jobs across our country. We are

committed to providing our brave men and women with the equipment in a way that is open, transparent and ensures best value for taxpayers dollars. And, ultimately, our government will provide the Canadian Armed Forces with the aircraft they need to do the jobs asked of them. Maurice Vellacott, MP Saskatoon-Wanuskewin

Amen! Old-time religion strikes a chord Gospel music festival set to raise the roof in Warman’s vintage arena By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

N

ine years ago, Frank and Liz Guenther of Warman took part in “Operation Amigo” - a Christian missions trip to Juarez, Mexico. They had signed up with the Edmonton-based organization to help build houses for people in one of the most poverty-stricken parts of northern Mexico, just across the border from New Mexico, USA. It was an experience that changed their lives. “We went that one time and we never quit,” said Frank Guenther in an interview last week. “We’ve gone back every winter since then. For the first few years we went with the group from Edmonton. Then a pastor in Mexico approached us and said ‘why not come on your own?’ So we took up the challenge.”

MISSIONS TO MEXICO The Guenthers’ organization, Christlike Ministries, has been raising funds and building homes in partnership with the Mexican people in Juarez ever since. “We take teams of people with us and our mission is to help feed the hungry and build houses in poor neighbourhoods,” said Guenther, whose regular job is Director of Public Works for the Town of Warman. “The extent of the poverty down there is just unbelievable. It’s a border region, so there area lot of transients, a lot of drugs and alcohol, and it is a dangerous place.” But there’s another, unexpected, side to it as well. “The one thing that really stood out for us is that families really do take care of their own down there,” said Guenther. “In one sense, they have to, because there really is not much in the way of social programs. There

are no old folks homes, and there is only a bare minimum of assistance for those who can’t work. Families have to take care of families, so the sense of family values is very widespread.” Guenther said people in the Juarez district, particularly in the isolated, rural areas where his group does the majority of its work, appreciate a roof over their heads and a square meal. Church-based organizations that work in the area are generally well-received. “Churches are very wellattended,” he said. “There are dangers because of the drug trade and the corruption, but I really believe things are getting better. It’s a gradual improvement. You won’t see things change on a grand scale right away, but small improvements over time will make a difference.” He said over the years, he and his wife have made many good friends in Mexico, and their commitment to their cause grows stronger every year.

FUNDRAISING CONCERT To keep the positive changes in Mexico happening, Guenther said funds need to be raised back home in Canada. “It takes a fair bit of money to go down there and build these houses, even with volunteer labour,” said Guenther. And that’s where the second annual Valley Gospel Celebration comes in. Scheduled for the Warman Diamond Arena, the three-day gospel music festival runs the weekend of June 15-17 and features some of the top performers from across Canada and the United States. Guenther said the idea for the first festival, held in 2011, came to him in the middle of the night. “I had been thinking about it all day, and was

Tickets for the event are available by calling 933-2834 or 931-9760. The first festival last year raised $18,000 after expenses. Of that, $9000 went to the Christlike Ministry’s mission work in Mexico, and $9000 went to help the Freedom Singers’ mission work in Romania. Guenther says he is hoping this year’s festival will match or exceed last year’s totals.

TOP TALENT BOOKED In addition to the Freedom Singers, the talent lineup includes several family bands: the Link Family, the Amundruds, and Double Portion.

I think they were expecting to hear the same kind of sound they get at a hockey game. But it was absolutely amazing.” He added the event is topped off with a seeminglyendless supply of good traditional Mennonite food. “People love the atmosphere,” he said. “It’s a great time for everyone, and it’s all for a great cause.” Tickets for the event can be purchased by calling Frank Guenther at 933-2834 or 931-9760.

Borden trail-blazers take friendship a step further New walking trail in John Diefenbaker’s boyhood hometown adds a touch of charm to the community, encourages fitness and helps bridge the generation gap By FERNE HEBIG

T

hebig@sasktel.net

ravellers on the busy Yellowhead Highway northwest of Saskatoon often blast past Borden without ever taking much notice of the village with a population of about 250 people. But Borden is now more visible, active and vibrant than ever, thanks to local volunteer-run organizations, local business owners, and the village council. From building the new Reverse-Osmosis water plant, to designating the local hotel a heritage property; from revitalizing the sports grounds and installing a brand new walking trail to the new houses under construction, the Village of Borden has been busy these last two years.

FRIENDSHIP TRAIL The Borden Friendship Club, a seniors group, received a grant last year to build a new walking trail in Borden called the Friendship Trail. It was built in association with the Borden Parks & Recreation Board, who added some matching funds to the grant money to complete and extend the trail. Past President Glenn Sutherland, and myself (Ferne Hebig) were the members on the Parks & Rec Board designated to work with Rita Smith, Eileen Petrun and Lottie Petriew of the Friendship Club on the trail project’s management committee. “The walking trail project is a wonderful example of a community of volunteers working together on a common goal,” explained Rita Smith, the Friendship Club member who wrote the grant application. “It was truly an intergenerational project with everyone contributing. Even the elementary school students helped by planting tulip bulbs and we really appreciated the high school students’ work in putting the mulch around the trees.” The new walking trail is approximately six feet wide and lined with crusher dust, and when completed will combine with the existing Tiger Lily Trail to make almost 3 kilometers of walking trail. Borden Mayor Dave Buckingham is a big fan of the work being done. “Being that recreation is becoming more important every day,” he says. “I think it is a wonderful addition to any community. To think that a small community like ours would have such a wonderful trail and park system it is a testament to the volunteers of the community.” There are multiple solar lamp posts and garbage cans placed along the trail as well as new trees, concrete benches and concrete picnic tables. With a few twists and turns, the abundant nature and wildlife along the new trail offers a beautiful experience. Jamie Brandrick, the newly elected President of the Parks & Recreation Board and member of Village Council, uses the new trail on a regular basis. “I think that the

Friendship Trail in Borden will be officially opened at a ceremony on Saturday, June 16. The new park that the trail runs through will be officially named during the community’s Diefenbaker Days event on Saturday, June 2. (Photos submitted by Ferne Hebig) trail is a wonderful addition to the Village,” he stated. “I have seen many residents using the trail, and I use the trail to walk our dogs. The way it zig zags around the creek is wonderful. My favourite part of the trail is walking through the trees on the south side of the creek. It’s like a little escape from the prairies.”

NAME THE PARK CONTEST Damage to the trail caused by ATVs, horses, and some pet defecation prompted the Parks and Rec Board to put up signs stating the rules of the park. Volunteers are working to rebuild the entire sports grounds and park, and signs are needed to protect the work done so far. Wanting the signage to reflect the true nature of the area, a “Name the Park” contest was held. The winning name was added to the new park signs and these will be unveiled by the Parks & Rec Board and the contest winner during Borden’s annual Diefenbaker Days event on Saturday, June 2, right after the parade, which starts at 11:00 a.m.. Diefenbaker Days, named after Borden’s most famous son, John G. Diefenbaker, is a fun community event with a slo-pitch tournament, steak supper, beer gardens, live entertainment, canteen, parade, cow patty bingo, and kidZone HOMECOMING EVENT During Diefenbaker Days, the population of the village booms as people return home for the event. “It’s a chance to renew old acquaintances,” remarks the Mayor, Dave Buckingham. “People don’t see what goes on behind the scenes to make a big event like this happen. As far as communities go, Borden has one if the highest per capita levels of volunteerism.” Councillor Jamie Brandrick has an added perspective because of his involvement with the Parks & Recreation Board. “The best part of the weekend is making new friends, seeing some old ones, and seeing the whole community get involved and kicking back, relaxing and having fun,” he said. “The Parks & Rec Board starts planning in February, and focuses on making it better every year. We need everyone in the community to help out with something at Dief-

enbaker Days. We have volunteers who run the canteen, beer gardens, ball tournament, kids activities and even umping the ball games. Our volunteer base is high. When there us a call for help everyone is ready to pitch in.”

SENSE OF PERMANENCE The new name for the park and the signs going up during Diefenbaker Days also add an air of permanence to the park “The Village of Borden has committed an area which will always be park land,” says Mayor Dave Buckingham proudly. “We recognize the importance of parks and recreation. It adds to the quality of life.” Jamie Brandrick is also a big promoter of the long term vision. “It will mean there will always be a place for everyone in the village to have access to recreation,” he states, “whether it be to go for a skate in the rink, play a game of ball, go for a walk or run or whatever their heart desires.” TRAIL EXPANSION While the portion of the trail paid for by the Friendship Club’s grant is complete, work continues on expanding the trail. There will be a grand opening event just for the Friendship Trail itself on June 16, including a ribbon cutting ceremony at the trail entrance on Baltimore Street at 11:30 a.m. Participants will then stroll along a portion of the trail up to the canteen and sports grounds where they can partake in some hot dogs and ice cream. “Seniors have a wealth of skills and are generous with their time,” commented Eileen Petrun, president of the Borden Friendship Club, a group of true trail blazers. “The Friendship Club embarked on the Friendship Trail project because we wanted to partner with other volunteers in Borden to build a lasting resource that the whole community could use and enjoy. If you haven’t yet walked on the new trail, I encourage you to come out to the grand opening and see how beautiful it is. It is an asset to Borden to be enjoyed by all.” BORDEN OPEN HOUSE On June 16, visitors can also attend the Borden ComContinued on Page 19 Please see “BORDEN TRAIL”

Cabinet shuffle reflects growth agenda Premier Brad Wall announced a major re-organization on Friday, May 25 of cabinet and government ministries. According to a news release from the Premier’s office, the cabinet shuffle is de-

signed to better reflect the government’s growth agenda. “We want to ensure the economic growth in Saskatchewan continues and that our government is meeting both the challenges and the opportunities of a growing province,” Wall said.

SUMA looks forward to working with new Minister

MININSTRY OF ECONOMY The biggest change is the creation of a new Ministry of the Economy which brings together a number of economic functions of the government, including Enterprise Saskatchewan, Innovation Saskatchewan, Tourism Saskatchewan, employment, immigration, trade, energy and resources. Bill Boyd becomes the new Minister of the Economy and Minister responsible for SaskPower. Boyd remains Minister responsible for the Global Transportation Hub. SHUFFLING PORTFOLIOS Tim McMillan becomes Minister responsible for Energy and Resources, Tourism Saskatchewan and Trade within the Economy ministry. McMillan also becomes Minister responsible for SaskEnergy. After four and a half years as Minister of Health, Don McMorris becomes the new Minister of Highways and Infrastructure and Minister responsible for SaskTel, Saskatchewan Transportation Corporation, Saskatchewan Gaming Corporation and Information Services Corporation. McMorris will also be the Minister responsible for SaskBuilds, a new government agency that will lead the planning, design, funding and implementation of significant infrastructure projects for the government and for government-funded third-party projects like schools and hospitals. “We have made record investments in our highways system but this area remains a top priority for our government,” Wall said. “Don McMorris has been one of the most effective and innovative Health Ministers in the country and I am asking him to bring that same commitment and innovation to improving Saskatchewan’s highways.” RETAINING POSITIONS Only two Ministers retain their current responsibilities in the new cabinet.

Jim Reiter. “The cabinet shuffle represents an opportunity for SUMA to work with a new group of ministers on priorities that are important to urban governments,” said Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA) President Allan Earle. Saskatchewan’s urban governments have a vested interest in a wide range of issues that concern the portfolios of several ministers. As the voice of urban governments, SUMA will work with ministers to focus on items like infrastructure, land use planning, environmental regulations, emergency services, housing, health care and economic development. “Saskatchewan is growing, and urban Saskatchewan is where that growth is happening,” said President Earle, who is also Mayor of Dalmeny. “We provide the services and infrastructure necessary for economic investment, employment opportunities and an excellent standard of living.” “We need to ensure that each minister understands our priorities and challenges,” Earle added, “so they understand the potential impact their decisions as members of cabinet can have on our cities, towns and villages.” SUMA extends congratulations to Minister Reiter on his appointment as the Minister of Government Relations. SUMA looks forward to continuing to work with him on urban issues.

Fitness Tips with Valerie Kirk Prevention Tips for Rotator Cuff Injuries and Shoulder Tendonitis What Causes Rotator Cuff Injury?

There are two major causes of shoulder injuries. The first one is degeneration, or wear and tear. Unfortunately, the shoulder is a tendinous area that does not receive a lot of blood supply. The tendons of the rotator cuff muscles receive very little oxygen and nutrients from the blood, and as a result are especially vulnerable to degeneration as we age. That is why shoulder problems in the elderly is very common. This lack of blood supply is also the reason why a shoulder injury can take quite a long time to heal. The second cause of most shoulder injuries is due to excessive force, or putting too much strain n the tendons of the shoulder muscles. This usually occurs when you try to lift something that is too heavy or when a force is applies to the arm while it’s in an unusual or awkward position.

Symptions of Rotator Cuff Injury

There are two common symptoms of a shoulder injury, pain and weakness. Pain is not alway felt when a shoulder injury occurs, however, what most people will report is the pain is very vague and it can be hard to pinpoint. Weakness, seems to be the most reliable symptom of a shoulder injury. Common complaints are inability to raise the arm above their head or to extend their arm directly to the side or font. Most cases, the larger the tear or damagae, the harder it is to move their arm.

SKILL SHOWCASE

Kaelan Wall (pictured) of Hepburn was one of over 40 players who attended the Saskatoon Blades spring camp over the weekend at Scroh Arena. In addition to running drills on the ice the players were subjected to fitness testing and had the opportunity to tour Marion M. Graham Collegiate. Wall, a 6’1”, 179 lb. defenceman,played Midget AA in Martensville last season.

Rotator Cuff Injury Treatment

The earlier a shoulder injury is treated, the better. The first 48 - 72 hours are crucial to complete a speedy recovery. The first and most important course of action is the R.I.C.E.R regime (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation and Referral). After the injury has been treated with R.I.C.E.R for at least 48 - 72 hours it’s time to move onto the next stage of treatment. As mentioned the joint receives very little blood supply. So, in order to increase blood supply, apply heat. Heat is extremely good for increasing blood flow to a particular area. Heat lamps work the best, while heat creams are a distant second choice. Secondly, massage! Massage is one of the best way to increase blood flow to an injured area, and of course oxygen and nutrients that go with it. The other benefit of massage is that it helps to reduce the amount of scar tissue which is associated with all muscle and tendon, strains and tears. Finally, please don’t stop moving. Some doctors will often tell their patients to keep the injured area still. This may not always be the best advice. Gentle movement helps to keep the blood flowing and of course, if pain is present, limit the amount of moving, but don’t stop.

Sask sets retail sales record Saskatchewan has set another economic record with $1.4 billion in retail sales in March which is the province’s highest total ever for that month, according to Statistics Canada. Retail sales in March 2012 grew by 5.9 per cent when compared to March 2011. “Saskatchewan cash registers were busier than ever before in the month of March,” Enterprise Minister Jeremy Harrison said. “People in Saskatchewan feel confident about their jobs and the province’s economy and we see the results with a recordsetting retail sector.” The 5.9 per cent retail sales growth during March 2012 over the previous year outpaces the Canadian average of 4.1 per cent. Saskatchewan’s retail sales growth of 0.7 per cent from February to March nearly doubled the nation’s overall retail sales growth of 0.4 per cent. “Balanced budgets, competitive taxes and key infrastructure investments are all cre-

Horoscopes CAPRICORN Not everyone believes as you do, Capricorn. Keep that in mind when conflict bubbles. Listen and make allowances as needed. You just might learn a thing or two. AQUARIUS You’re a realist, Aquarius, and see things as they are. While that works well for you most of the time, you need to give in and let the dreamer in you come out this week. PISCES A loved one grows distant. Don’t take it personally, Pisces. They are dealing with something and will return to their sunny self in no time. ARIES Want to get noticed? Don’t make a spectacle of yourself, Aries. Go for something a little less subtle and more commendable. An act of kindness goes a long way. TAURUS You don’t always have to explain yourself, Taurus. Proceed as usual and leave the explaining to others. A relative needs a favor fast; help them. GEMINI Someone has got you twisted around their finger, but that doesn’t mean you have to succumb to their every wish. Learn to say no and protect yourself, Gemini. CANCER Someone new comes into your inner circle. They may be different, but that doesn’t entitle you to dismiss them, Cancer. Embrace their uniqueness. LEO You tend to be very private, but if you want to get anywhere with a certain person, you are going to have to be more revealing. Open up, Leo. VIRGO Up for some fun? Then have some, Virgo, and don’t let others make your feel guilty for doing so. You deserve time to do the things you enjoy. LIBRA An incident at work revives your joy for life. Get out there, Libra, and meet new people and try new things. The world is your oyster. A friend returns a favor. SCORPIO You’ve got a barrel of issues to deal with at home. Confront them one at a time, Scorpio, and use reason rather than emotion to resolve them. SAGITTARIUS You’re on top of the world this week, Sagittarius. Everything goes your way, but be careful you don’t go overboard. You do have limitations.

reat Plains College will be saying congratulations and farewell to 98 students at the Swift Current Campus graduation tonight, including the first cohort of Wind Turbine Maintenance Technician graduates anywhere in Saskatchewan. The 10-month certificate program launched at Great Plains in September 2011, in affiliation with Northern Lights College. The 12 graduates from this year’s class also had the opportunity to attain credit in the electrician and industrial mechanic trades, as well as BZEE international certification in the wind energy trade. “This is a historic day for Great Plains College and our students,” said Swift Current Region manager Karen Richmond. “As the first class of its kind in Saskatchewan, these graduates have positioned themselves well for successful careers on the cutting edge of an emerging industry.” Tonight’s graduates also include 11 Adult Basic Education, six Business, seven Electrician, 17 Office Administration (including three from Maple Creek and one from Gravelbourg program centres), 11 Fourth Class and eight Third Class Power Engineering, 12 Practical Nursing, three Bachelor of Social Work, and 11 Welding students. The college awarded more than $168,000 in scholarships this year, as GPC easily surpassed the $500,000 five-year target set for the Growing the Future campaign when it launched in 2007. “Earning a post-secondary certificate, diploma or degree is a remarkable achievement,” said Director of Programs Michelle MacDonald. “Today is a true milestone for each and every one of our graduates, the first of many as they begin to build their careers, families, and communities.”

munity Open House and Tradeshow at the Borden Community Centre. Mayor Buckingham has been a big part of arranging the event. “One of my responsibilities as mayor,” he says, “is to provide a clear and bright future for the Village of Borden. One of the cornerstones of a promising future is sustainability. The Borden Community Open House and Tradeshow will provide us with a new opportunity in attracting businesses, individuals and families to move here. A wide variety of business, community clubs and attractions will be present at the show and people and businesses are continuing to call daily to be included in our event.” Councillor Brandrick adds his view of their purpose. “To let people know that we are here and not to stop at the river and come a few more miles to live in a great community. To let people know that it’s only a short drive to get to work in the city, for me it’s a short thirty-five minute drive. When I lived in the city it took me twenty minutes to get to work. At this event you will see what Borden has to offer what an amazing number of services there are.”

JOHN COWAN Saskatoon “I really appreciate what STARS did for me when I was working in Alberta. STARS airlifted me after a car accident in the summer of 2008. It’s very exciting to know this service will be available in Saskatchewan now. STARS is going to make a big difference in Saskatchewan, especially in rural and smaller centres.”

LARRY HUNT Moose Jaw “It is a great asset for us to have STARS in Saskatchewan and we really need the service here. I was airlifted by STARS nine years ago after my wife and I were in a car accident in Alberta. I’ve been working to help STARS ever since. We’re ecstatic about having the program in Saskatchewan now. I wouldn’t be around if it wasn’t for STARS. We are so thankful for STARS.”

Art show set for Delisle Hall An art show featuring three unique area artists is scheduled for the Delisle Town Hall next week. Nancy Durham, Kim McFarlane and Betty Aasen are pooling their talents on Tuesday, June 5 and Wednesday, June 6 in a combined show and sale. Nancy Durham is a jewellery artist who has been creating oneof-a-kind pieces for 26 years in her studio on a farm near Delisle. The jewellery is made of semi-precious stones, crys-

tal, metal, glass, ceramic, shell and wood. Kim McFarlane is an artist and sign painter whose enamel-on-wood creations are all lovingly hand-done. The subjects range from re-creations of vintage advertisements to portraits, landscapes and wildlife. Betty Aasen is a selftaught artist who specializes in creating stunning pieces using plaster and metallic paints on hardboard. What makes her art unique is that

she also uses real wheat stems and heads in the paintings. Aasen, who lives on an acreage between Saskatoon and Pike Lake, draws inspiration from her rural upbringing. All the artwork is for sale at reasonable prices, and the public is invited to drop by and view the show. The Delisle Town Hall is located across from the community arena, at the corner of 3rd Street and 3rd Avenue. The hours are 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. both days.

STEPPING UP TO A HIGHER LEVEL

The Dalmeny Martial Arts club held their first belt promotion ceremony on April 25. A total of 29 students trained twice a week for the past 7 months, testing their skills the entire time. Club Senseis Rob Gonda, Shawn Fisher and Zach Erber proudly presented the students with their next level belt, along with a certificate. The club practices Shotokan style karate, as well as kick boxing and grappling, with a strong focus on the spiritual aspect of karate. Community involvement is a must, according to the club leaders. Dalmeny Martial Arts trains Mondays and Wednesday nights, with two classes; one under 13 and the second 13 and over. The new season will start in mid September. (Photo submitted by Shawn Fisher

Camping out on street could be costly Bylaw enforcement issues annual warning to RV owners in Warman By TERRY PUGH tpugh@ccgazette.ca

Victoria Day Weekend generally spells the beThe ginning of camping season. But don’t

plan to park your camper trailer or RV for an extended period of time on the streets of Warman. A municipal bylaw in Warman prohibits parking of vehicles, including RVs, camper trailers, utility trailers and boat trailers, for longer than 48 consecutive hours. This applies to trailers that are attached to vehicles or left unattached. Wade Eberle, Bylaw Enforcement Officer for the Town of Warman, says the Traffic Bylaw is aimed at preventing congestion along streets in residential and commercial areas. “This is the time of year when we start to see a lot more recreational units coming out of storage as people are getting ready for summer,” said Eberle in an interview on Wednesday, May 23. “If everyone leaves their camper and boat trailer parked on the street, it really clutters things up pretty quickly, especially in areas where parking is limited to begin with.” Eberle said the bylaw was implemented to ensure streets are not obstructed. The aim is to allow all vehicles, including emergency vehicles, to travel freely. Section 34 of the Warman Traffic Bylaw regulates parking of Recreational Vehicles. It states: “1) An owner or operator of a recreational vehicle shall not park the recreational vehicle on a highway in the Town of Warman for more than forty-eight (48) consecutive hours following which the owner or operator shall move the recreational vehicle to an off-street location for a period of not less than forty-eight (48) consecutive hours before the recreational vehicle may be parked again on a highway. (2) No owner or operator of a recreational vehicle shall park the recreational vehicle on any highway pursuant to this Subsection in such a manner as to constitute a hazard to other persons using the street. (3) No owner or operator of a recreational vehicle shall park the recreational vehicle on a boulevard or an

A motorist stops briefly on Central Street in Warman to attach a license plate to his trailer before heading out for the weekend area set aside for a boulevard. (4) Any recreational vehicle parked on a highway pursuant to this section shall display a current license plate.” Eberle noted that the bylaw also states that the 48-hour parking limit applies to all vehicles. The bylaw specifies that no semi-tractor trailer units are allowed to be parked on Warman streets. Eberle said some owners of camper trailer units park their trailers facing the wrong way on residential streets, and then open up their slideouts so they hang over the sidewalk. This is not permitted under the bylaw, he noted. He said there is a certain amount of flexibility in the bylaw, and if there are extenuating circumstances, people should contact the Warman Town Office or the Bylaw Enforcement Officer to explain why they need an extension of the parking time limit. “If there is an issue, a courtesy phone call is appreciated,” said Eberle. “We can usually accommodate those requests.” There is also leeway under the bylaw for utility trailers that are used by tradespeople for their businesses on a regular basis. “If the trailer

THE WARMAN BYLAW YOU NEED TO KNOW 34.1 Parking of Recreational Vehicles (1) An owner or operator of a recreational vehicle shall not park the recreational vehicle on a highway in the Town of Warman for more than forty-eight (48) consecutive hours following which the owner or operator shall move the recreational vehicle to an off-street location for a period of not less than forty-eight (48) consecutive hours before the recreational vehicle may be parked again on a highway. (2) No owner or operator of a recreational vehicle shall park the recreational vehicle on any highway pursuant to this Subsection in such a manner as to constitute a hazard to other persons using the street. (3) No owner or operator of a recreational vehicle shall park the recreational vehicle on a boulevard or an area set aside for a boulevard. (4) Any recreational vehicle parked on a highway pursuant to this section shall display a current license plate. 35. Parking of Unlicensed Vehicles No vehicle shall be parked on a public highway unless it is displaying license plates for the current year. 36. Parking Area In parking areas set aside for the parking of vehicles by resolution of Council, no person shall: (1) park a vehicle for more than twenty-four (24) hours at any one time; (2) park a vehicle so as to block the exit of any vehicle already

parked therein or in such a manner as to obstruct or interfere with the use of any remaining space therein by others for parking purposes; (3) enter or leave such parking area in any other manner than as indicated by signs posted in the said area not park a vehicle otherwise that as indicated on signs erected in the said parking area. 37. Maximum Parking – 48 Hours Notwithstanding any other provisions in Sections 34 and 34.1, any vehicle parked for an uninterrupted period of time in excess of forty-eight (48) hours on any street or boulevard may be seized, removed and impounded at the expense of the owner thereof. 37.1 Chalk Marks (a) In order to determine the time which a vehicle or recreational vehicle has been parked in a location where parking is restricted to a specific time, any person authorized to enforce this Bylaw may place an erasable chalk mark on the tread base of the tire of the parked or stopped vehicle or recreational vehicle without such person or the City incurring any liability for doing so. (b) No person shall remove an erasable chalk mark placed under Subsection a) while the vehicle or recreational vehicle remains parked in the location where it was marked. 38. Parking Vehicles Exceeding 7 Meters in Length Subject to Section 34 and 34.1, no person driving a vehicle, combination of vehicles, or other vehicles in excess or 7 meters shall park on any highway in the Town of Warman.

there is a strong likelihood they will be ticketed or towed at the owner’s expense.”

New website for City of Martensville offers exciting incentives to residents The City of Martensville recently announced a new website that can be logged on at www. martensville.ca Martensville City Manager Scott Blevins said in a news release that many people still have bookmarked the old Martensville website, and he urged them to update their bookmarks. “If you see the old website on your screen, it is important to refresh your link and change your bookmark,” Blevins stated. “This new website has modern capabilities which the City will be modifying, enhancing and using over time.” Blevins pointed out that Martensville City Council would like more information and updates to get to the residents on a regular basis, and the website is the quickest and most costefficient method. “One part of this strategy is to get as many residents as possible to sign up for the “Notify Me” on the City’s website.,” he said. “By signing up you can subscribe to one or all of the items listed. Items consist of bid opportunities, employment opportunities, news items and events in the community.” Blevins said the new website offers a great way to stay informed and up-to-date with the community. He added the city is also offering incentives to encourage residents to log on regularly. “In order to generate interest the City will, from time to time, draw for door prizes from the “Notify Me” subscribers. Door prize items may include Aquatic passes, clothing, promotional material, and other items,” he concluded.

Warman sets up organic waste depot for grass, leaves, branches The Town of Warman has once again make available to residents an “Organics” waste depot, effective May 2012. This depot is for the collection of organics – grass clippings, leafs and small tree trimmings and will be located on the south side of North Railway Street East [the same location as the old recycling bins]. As this new green bin is for organics only, no plastic bags will be allowed in the bin. A separate red bin will be on site for the disposal of your plastic bags after emptying them into the green bin. The Warman Town Office advises that the bins are not for garbage, and requests that people refrain from dropping any food waste or other waste into this bin. Food waste will attract flies and cause foul odours. Misuse of this depot will result in fines to offenders and the removal of this service.

All of this will take place in Kinsmen Park and will run all three days of the weekend. Come out and support your locals as they compete to win the Buster Days Slo-Pitch Championship.

Wrestlers from Gold Dragon Wrestling will be performing on Friday, June 1st from 7:30-9:30pm at the North Ridge Hall. Cost is $15 per person and we will have beverages and snack items for sale.

hristine Ginter faces a long road ahead of her, both figuratively and literally, but she’s happy to take on the challenge. The Martensville woman is going to be walking from Regina to Saskatoon next month to raise money for a charitable foundation aimed at helping youth at risk. She’s also hoping to encourage people to donate athletic shoes and other used sports equipment for inner-city children through the Saskatoon Sports Council. A shoe collection bin has been set up at Warman High School for the purpose, and another has been established at the Mall at Lawson Heights. “If we can help troubled youth and children achieve a better, healthier life, then it’s worth every step along the way,” said Ginter in an interview May 23. She and her husband Ryan Ginter are directors of a new foundation called “Inspiring Youth 4 Success”. Ginter, who grew up in Saskatoon, is a substitute teacher with the Saskatoon Public School Division and the Greater Saskatoon Catholic School Division. She received her Bachelor of Education Honours degree in 2010 through SUNTEP and in addition to classroom teaching, she also teaches music in her church. She says her own childhood and adolescent years were “pretty rough” and adds she had to overcome drugs and alcohol to achieve her goals. Going through those experiences gave her a first-hand perspective on the barriers many young people face, and she says she wants to do what she can to give youth a hand. “I have a story to share,” she said. “There are a lot of kids that turn to drugs and alcohol and contemplate suicide. It’s a very high ratio, and many kids get discouraged and think they can’t do anything. Our desire through this foundation is to offer scholarships and bursaries to help kids reach their dreams. We partner with different community groups to do what we can.” Ginter and her brother will be starting their walk from Regina on Monday, June 4, and are planning to average about 50 kilometers per day until they reach Saskatoon. Her husband Ryan, who manages the Floor It store, will driving a van and supplying them with their food, water and fresh clothing as required.
