EMPLOYMENT JUMPS BY 9,000: MARCH SEES NEW RECORD With a year-over-year employment increase of 9,000 people, Saskatchewan's March employment total of 520,000 is a record high for that month. It's also the largest year-over-year employment increase since last July - another sign the economic recovery is now in full swing in Saskatchewan. March also marks the 10th consecutive month that Saskatchewan has had the lowest unemployment rate in Canada. Saskatchewan's March unemployment rate of 5.1 per cent (seasonally adjusted) sits well below the national rate of 8.2 per cent. "Saskatchewan workers are finding increasing numbers of opportunities," Advanced Education, Employment and Labour Minister Rob Norris said. "Looking ahead, recent forecasts suggest that trend will continue in the coming months. This is especially good news as students start looking for summer jobs in the weeks ahead. We are encouraged that over the last month we have seen

youth employment increase by 3,000 jobs." On a year-over-year basis, Saskatchewan saw increases in full-time employment (12,100), employment for women (3,800) and employment for men (5,200). Part-time employment decreased by 3,100. Among major Canadian cities, Saskatoon (4.3 per cent) and Regina (5.3 per cent) continue to fare well, with the lowest and third lowest unemployment rates in Canada. (Quebec City tied with Saskatoon with a rate of 4.3 per cent). Saskatoon saw an increase of 3,300 jobs over last year. Norris also pointed to as a key hub for all Saskatchewan job seekers and employers. " has maintained its momentum from last month, when the site saw more than 10,000 opportunities posted," Norris said. "With more than 6,200 jobs posted today, including 384 summer jobs, SaskJobs is the place to go for Saskatchewan workers and employers."

SASKATCHEWAN MARKS THE END OF AN ERA A national commemorative ceremony was held today to mark the end of an era and honour all First World War service men and women at the National War Memorial & Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Ottawa, Ontario. This ceremony occurs after the passing of John "Jack" Babcock, the last living Canadian First World War veteran. Organized by the Government of Canada, the ceremony marks not only the passing of all veterans of this era, but also the end of Canada's living link with the First World War as well. "The heroic efforts of our soldiers at Vimy Ridge and other First World War battlefields marked a coming of age for Canada as a nation," Premier Brad Wall said. "The brave Canadians who served in the First World War deserve our constant remembrance and gratitude." On Monday, April 12, a provincial ceremony will be held at the Saskatchewan War Memorial, west of the Legislative Building. Members of the public are invited to attend the ceremony, which begins at 12:30 p.m. and will last approximately 30 minutes. Flags at the Saskatchewan War Memorial and Legislative Building will be flown at half-staff on April 12 and a Book of Reflection will be available to the public for signing in the Legislative Building until April 23. Following this time, it will be given to Veterans Affairs, along with books from other provinces and territories, in order to serve as a reminder for all Canadians of the significance of the end of this era.

Tips for Dieting without Hunger The program started January 4, 2010 and ended April 1, 2010, a total of 12 weeks. There was a total of 18 people who had participated with each paying a $20.00 entry fee. 100% payout of 360.00. In the beginning of the program I tried to make an incentive for people to come out and exercise by giving out a $50.00 prize to the person who participated by coming to the gym every day from January 11-27. Two people qualified for the draw and the winner was Evelyn Aubichon. Seven (7) people came for the final weigh in April 1, 2010 and the winner was Yvonne Kimbley, She lost a total of 10.5 % weight loss and 8.5cm around the waist and she won the 300.00 gift certificate from Wal-Mart along with $10.00 cash. The total weight loss amount from the 7 people who came to the final weigh was 80 lbs and the around the waist was. 33.1cm. I also gave t- shirts to people who participated in the walking program and the ones who registered. So if you did not receive your shirt give me a call at 288-4807 or come see me at the Health Centre. I have received suggestions for the next Weight Loss Challenge which will start on April 12th with a $20.00 registration fee. The prizes will be based on how many entries received with a 100% payout on three prizes. The more entries equal the more money to be won. For example: if there are 50 people entered the total payout would be $1000.00 split three ways. Come to Valley View School Gym on Monday, April 12th to register from 6 to 7 pm. Challenge will run for 6 weeks. Deborah Laliberte Community Education/Outreach Worker

Hunger is a major barrier when you’re trying to drop a few pounds; about 80 percent of women believe they need to feel satisfied in order to succeed at weight loss, according to WeightWatchers research. Follow these six easy tips so you can diet without feeling hungry. Stock Up on Veggies Eat plenty of leafy greens, lettuce, tomatoes, green beans, squash and onions. Don’t like the taste? Stash them in stews, soups, pasta sauces, pizza or meatloaf. They’re high-volume, highsatisfaction, low-calorie superstars. Limit Dry Foods Avoid pretzels, crackers and chips. Dry foods lack water and can pack a lot of calories into a small portion. Water Works Aim for half of your total fluid intake to come from plain water. If you want to make things more interesting, try soda and sparkling mineral waters, diet soft drinks or herbal teas. Remember, too, that fresh fruit and veggies contain lots of water – another reason to stock up on them. Say Yes to Starters Sensible entrées plough into your appetite, so should lower the energy density of your main meal. Choose vegetable soups or a garden salad with low-fat dressing. Load Up on Protein There’s plenty to choose from in this food group, including lean red meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy, beans, soy and grains. Protein makes you feel full for longer, having a limiting effect on the amount of other foods you eat. Wholegrain Goodness Check that at least half the breads and cereals you eat contain whole grains.

The revised draft Environment Impact Statement was submitted on February 26th. It is now undergoing a review of AREVA’s response to comments previously received by the Federal and Provincial technical reviewers as well as the public. During the Environmental Assessment process for the Midwest Mining Project, the site remains in a care and maintenance mode. The McClean Lake sit employees continue to be responsible for conducting the care and maintenance activities.

will occur in the summer of 2010. We currently estimate that about 120 McClean Lake employees and 20 Saskatoon employees will be affected. These numbers have not been finalized and are estimates as we continue to assess future staffing requirements during this time of decreased activity. Due to the shut down of the mine, much of the large mine equipment such as 100-ton trucks and loaders were transported to AREVA’s mines in Niger, Africa. All monthly production targets are above target so far this year. All areas of the mill continue to run well. There have been no spills since the last issue.

Routine maintenance and environmental monitoring activities continue at Cluff Lake. Due to the recent warm weather and snow melt, water began flowing through the tailing management area cobble dam in mid-March. The flow has since slowed down. The Island Fen drilling project was completed on March 25th, 2010.

We are pleased to have been able to help the following organizations in the month of February.

The application to renew the Cluff Lake Approval to Operate a Pollutant Control Facility has been submitted to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment and we are awaiting the licensing decision. The previous approval expired August 31, 2009, but was extended to improve the review and provide an opportunity to meet with the public. There has been no reportable spill at Cluff Lake since September 28, 2004. Maintenance and reclamation activities continue at the mine area. AREVA Resources will suspend production at the McClean Lake mill and place it in a care and maintenance mode by mid summer. The mill will continue to operate until July 2010, processing stockpiled ore to achieve an estimated 2010 production of 1,860,000 pounds U3o8. Unfortunately, the decision to suspend activities at the mill translates in a number of lay-offs which
