Honour Wall dedicated at ceremony By Ana Bykhovskaia abykhovskaia@estevanmercury.ca

The Estevan branch of the Royal Canadian Legion held a dedication ceremony at the Royal Heights Veterans Memorial Park Sunday afternoon. A significant project – the Honour Wall with the names of First and Second World Wars and Korean War Estevan veterans – is completed and officially opened. The person behind this project, Lyle Dukart, has been working hard to find information about as many people who served Canada

in combat and peacekeeping missions. “I feel quite relieved after 11 years of doing this,” said Dukart. The project was inspired by a husband and wife who passed on and didn’t have any children to carry on their names and stories. “The only way they were going to be recognized is by our wall,” explained Dukart. And off it went. A lot of work was done during this time. There also were a lot of challenges on the way. “I did what I could, I put it in public eye two or three times. And a lot of phone

calls, a lot of researching.” Dukart said that getting veterans from the right war was one of the most difficult parts. “First World War was my biggest obstacle because there were very little records of it, and the stuff that was kept was all handwritten and it was so hard to read the writings,” explained Dukart. He has spent countless hours looking through archives and talking to people. Second World War veteran Jim Spenst was a great help. And even after all the research Dukart believes that there is a lot more to do.

The Sunday ceremony involved the Estevan RCMP, Royal Canadian Legion members, No. 2901 Estevan (Elks) PPCLI Army Cadet Corps and pipe band. The ceremony started with the march towards the sight, which was followed by an opening speech and a prayer by St. Paul’s United Church pastor Jason Richards. “The whole concept and idea of this Memorial Wall is for the people who came back to give back to the community from which they were from, with all their spirit and experience,” said Richards, noting that thus the com-

During his speech, Dukart also talked about the meaning and importance of the Honour Wall. “This wall was built to recognize the people that came back to Estevan and community. They became builders of the community by being mayors of Estevan, police officers, businessmen, farmers, coal miners. These men and women have put in many volunteer hours and raised money for hospitals, support youth groups such as Legion Track and Field… hockey teams and senior homes,” said Dukart. “This wall is a small tribute to the veterans who came home and built the community.” He also expressed hope that someone will pick up the “torch” and will carry this wall on to recognize peacekeepers, law enforcements and other people defending the community and the country.

Centennial Park will get a splash pad Centennial Park in central Estevan will be home to a new splash park and other amenities. Estevan city council approved the addition of the splash pad during Monday night’s meeting. They awarded the project for $148,102.60 to Western Recreation and Development Inc. of Raymore, which was one of four companies to bid on the project. Once it is complete, Estevan will have three water spray parks.The others are in Padwick Park and the Royal Heights Veterans’ Memorial Park, both of which are in northwest Estevan. Rod March, the manager of parks and facilities for the city, said the process for the splash park will begin later this month by tapping into the underground utilities that are there, and getting the site ready for the contractor. “We expect construction

to begin at the end of July, going into August, with a commissioning into September, and checking it through and making sure everything works properly,” said March. It is expected to be complete around Sept. 30. March doubts that it would be finished in time for use this year, but he is optimistic it would be ready to go at the start of 2020. “We want to get it all ready,” March said. The splash park will be located on the west edge of Centennial Park. The city still needs access for the water tower from Smith Street, and they have utilities on the north side of the curling rink. March pointed all four submissions for the splash park project were very detailed and relatively close in terms of the points awarded in the evaluation process. But he added Western Recreation stood out

for the following reasons: •The proposal by Western Recreation provided a design with a theme to complement the historical context of the area this spray park is intended to go; •Western Recreation listed specific local contractors they are using in the construction of the spray park; •The company’s Nirbo

product is fully compatible with interchangeable parts with the other two spray parks in the city, which simplifies preventive maintenance and service procedures; and •Western Recreation had the least qualifying clauses or limitations within their proposal for the scope of work. Bids were scored on sev-

A splash park will soon be constructed in this section of Centennial Park in central Estevan.

eral different criteria, with a total possible score of 100 points. Vendor capability elements received 40 per cent of the weight, with points for experience with government clients; reference checks; years of experience; project personnel qualifications; and professional memberships, certifications and awards. Work plan elements accounted for half of the score. Completeness accounted for 25 points, quality control and emergency preparedness accounted for 15 points and management of warranty and information were 10 points. Finally, cost elements were worth 10 points. Council members praised the design of the splash park, and they believe it will fit in nicely with the design of Centennial. March said he sees the need for a third splash park in the city. The other two are

used a lot. “I think it would be a great addition right there in that location, and I think it will be beautiful,” said March. A washroom facility, a gazebo and an accessible playground structure are also slated for the park. March hopes the washroom will be finished before the splash park is ready. “They’re tied together,” said March. “We just don’t want too many construction people on site at one time, because for safety reasons, we just want to make sure that everyone is operating safely, so we’ll do one, and then the other.” The accessible play structure would have pour in-place rubber, similar to what Royal Heights has now for its new structure. “It seems to be the best alternative because it doesn’t blow away on us. It doesn’t create little divots. It’s a great way to go.”

Sidewalk along Souris Avenue North is waiting for pedestrian cross light By Ana Bykhovskaia abykhovskaia@estevanmercury.ca

A new sidewalk along Souris Avenue North is almost completed. The pedestrian part of the road has already reached Wellock Road but some more work needs to be done on the Edward Street side of it. City engineer Kiflom Weldeab explained what needs to be accomplished to finalize the project. “We have to install a pushbutton traffic light to give the crossing to the daycare and people walking around,” said Weldeab. These works are scheduled to start sometime this week. Once that’s completed they will finish the installation of the sidewalk. “So right now 90-95 per cent is done and once the traffic light, the pedestrian cross light, is done we’ll finish the concrete and that will be done,” said Weldeab. In the meantime, the construction crews have to backfill the valley side and wait for about a week until the concrete cures.

The sidewalk along Souris Avenue North by the Estevan Regional Nursing Home is supposed to be completed within two weeks. Photo by Anastasiia Bykhovskaia Until then they can’t put too much weight on the sidewalk. “People are walking on it, walking is not going to hurt it (but it might be dangerous for pedestrians). We don’t want people or people on a stroller, or wheelchair to fall in the valley.

So we advise the public not to use the sidewalk as of yet,” said Weldeab. Once backfill is done there will be a 180-metre guardrail put up on the valley side up to Wellock Road. “Basically we have about

two more weeks at least to complete the project,” said Weldeab. The project that started on May 13 was originally slated to be completed by May 31, however, the company, hired to install the pedestrian crossing light,

wasn’t able to come on time to have the project finished by the deadline, thus holding back the completion of the concrete work as well. Besides this delay, there were no other complications. The sidewalk was on the city agenda since last year. Es-

tevan city council awarded the tender for the sidewalk to Turnbull Excavating for $71,490 at the March council meeting. Weldeab noted that backfill, the fence and the pedestrian crossing light were not included in the tender. The total price of the project is not known yet. But Weldeab said the city has enough funds allocated to cover the costs. The expectations are that the sidewalk will provide greater safety for pedestrians. Installation of the pedestrian lights is slated for the second week of June. During that time there will be road barricades and the speed limit will be restricted to 30 kilometres per hour. After this project is finished, the city will proceed with resurfacing Souris Avenue South from Fourth Street down to Perkins Street and further. “We are hoping that will (happen) sometime in JulyAugust,” said Weldeab. The city will also keep working on potholes and do water main repairs. They also will keep upgrading pump stations, changing pumps and panels.

Construction ongoing for North Portal project It’s been more than a year since construction started on an expansion at the North Portal border crossing, and while a lot of progress has been made, there is still a lot of work remaining. Luke Reimer, a communications officer with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), said the project started with temporary primary inspection line (PIL) booths for both travellers and commercial traffic a year ago. “This was necessary as part of phasing to allow for roadwork and building construction. Permanent new PIL booths are expected to be installed by the end of fall 2019,” Reimer told the Mercury in an email. The old canopy for the main CBSA office has been removed, and beams and framing for the new canopy have been erected. The expanded commercial warehouse and new drive-through examination bay are almost completely enclosed, with glass installed

and mechanical/electrical, insulation, and roofing work now underway. “Travellers will notice the aluminum framework for the solar panel wall on the southwest wall of the commercial warehouse,” said Reimer. Once completed, the panels are expected to generate 37 kilowatts at peak output, powering approximately 10 to 15 per cent of the commercial building load. Part of the upcoming work includes replacing sidewalks and the parking pavement area adjacent to the main CBSA office. Therefore, temporary parking will be put in place further from the building. Additionally, the front entrance on the north side of the main CBSA office will be inaccessible due to concrete work. Instead, there will be a temporary walkway with signage directing travellers to an entrance on the south side of the building. “Travellers have been ver y co-operative while

construction is ongoing,” said Reimer. “Border wait times for travellers have been minimal and within service standards. Border wait times for commercial traffic are consistent with those occurring previously and fluctuate depending on daily volumes. From April 1 to Sept. 30, dimensional restrictions of six metres in width and 50 metres in length are in effect for oversized loads entering/ leaving Canada at North Portal. Operators of larger loads have been encouraged to use other crossings, with the nearest being Regway in south-central Saskatchewan. Once the project is complete, it will increase the capacity of the port of entry by adding a third processing lane. A new and taller canopy will be constructed and three bi-level primary inspection line booths will be added to streamline traffic flow.

Construction is underway on an expanded commercial warehouse and new drivethrough examination bay at the North Portal border crossing. The commercial warehouse, where semi-trucks and commercial vehicles come through, will be renovated

for more efficient processing. There will also be a drive-thru into unloading bays, and an increase in the

POLL

parking area to accommodate 12 semi-trucks at one time. This is expected to be an 18-30-month project.

Newcomer services planning variety of activities that will appeal to their clients and the community By David Willberg dwillberg@estevanmercury.ca

Southeast Newcomer Services (SNS) is planning a variety of events for people in the community during the summer months. The first will be a night at the races with the Estevan Motor Speedway on June 15. Track president Byron Fichter reached out to SNS to invite some newcomers to attend the event. So not only will it be kids night, with free admission for local youths, but SNS program co-ordinator Stephanie Kane Davis said there will be a healthy contingent of newcomers at the program. “We’re really excited that they reached out to us and are inviting newcomers to come experience a little bit more of Estevan and all of the community events we have here,” said Kane Davis. SNS has also partnered with Local 5430 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees for a National Aboriginal Day celebration on June 21 at Centennial Park. There will be

The women’s cultural night will be making its return with dancing July 13 at the Western Star Hotel. File photo dancers, fiddlers and guitarists to go with other activities, such as a possible reading corner. Dawn Marie SloanBeahm will be bringing her Metis display so that she can share it with people from the community.

A free lunch will also be served. The third annual Women’s Cultural Dance and Art Night will be July 13 at the Western Star Hotel at 6 p.m. The event will be a showcase of dance, food and art from

around the world. A new attraction this year is that Anna St. Onge, an Estevan resident who is originally from Vietnam, is going to demonstrate Vietnamese dancing. “I’m excited to see what she has, because she has demonstrated some of her dancing, and it’s going to be spectacular.” Kane Davis expects there will be a tree of life sculpture with metal work, beads and stones. Women will be encouraged to dress in their cultural attire, and to come and experience a great night. One of the most popular programs at SNS, the International Kitchen, is slated to resume in the summer months. The sessions will be held on a biweekly basis at the Nicholson Centre. Kane Davis hopes that food from such areas as Pakistan, India and Greece could be offered this year. “I wanted a Greek night last year, but was unable to fulfill it, but maybe this year I can

get some Greek cultural food for International Kitchen,” said Kane Davis. She believes it’s a good program to have during the summer months because people can cool off indoors for a while. And it is held at the Nicholson Centre because she believes it’s a great site for the initiative, and Lions club member Ron Senchuk has been very good to SNS. Each time they have offered the International Kitchen, it has sold out. They can accommodate up to 20 people, although they usually prepare enough food for a few additional visitors. A couple information sessions are also in the works that information services advisor Ben Idoko is spearheading. The first is on volunteering for the Canadian Red Cross on June 19 at 6 p.m. Megan Russell, an outreach co-ordinator and disaster management worker for the southeast and east central regions, will speak at the event. “We feel that it’s impor-

tant if there’s a crisis or something disastrous that happens, that we are prepared and ready, and we have volunteers willing to just know what they’re supposed to do,” said Kane Davis. The other will be on employment standards on Aug. 3 at 10:30 a.m. at the SNS office. A representative from Employment Standards Saskatchewan will come with information for newcomers who possibly don’t know their rights as employees. A few other events and activities are also included in the works for the next few months. A berry picking day is held each year, and she expects the SNS members will head to Taylor Farms near Glen Ewen in August. “I get a van ordered and ready, and we always sell out within a day for spots in the van to go get strawberries,” said Kane Davis. They will also enjoy a tour of the farm, helping the newcomers learn more about how a berry farm operates.

Humane society reminds public about pet safety The Estevan Humane Society is reminding the public not to leave their dogs in vehicles now that the Estevan area has experienced some warmer temperatures. Jodi Kallis, who is the supervisor for the humane society’s shelter, said people should not leave their pets in their vehicles unless it is absolutely necessary. “If you’re going somewhere that you can’t take your pet inside with you, I would just leave them at home. It’s

not safe for them to be in the car, even for a short period of time and even with the windows down. It can get really hot in there quickly.” Pets can’t sweat like humans, so they rely on panting to cool off. Even when they’re panting, they can’t cool down fast enough in a hot vehicle on a typical late spring or summer day, and so they become susceptible to heat stroke or another health issue. If people do have to

bring their pets with them, the best bet would be to find a way to tie them up outside. They shouldn’t leave the vehicle running with the pet inside, either, she said, because if something happens to the air conditioning, it creates a problem for the pet. The exception is if someone is in the vehicle with the animal. Kallis has seen situations in Estevan in which pets have been left in vehicles, but she doesn’t believe it’s a common

occurrence. Most pet owners are very responsible. “ Pe o p l e t h i n k t h a t they’re just running into the store for a few minutes, and they think it will be fine, but sometimes you get distracted in the store, and you forget that your pet is in the vehicle,” said Kallis. If people do see an animal in a car on a hot day, they should contact the EPS or the animal control officer. “We don’t recommend you breaking the window

yourself or injuring yourself, so definitely call someone if you can’t locate anyone,” she said. The Estevan Police Service reported a couple of times last week that it had been notified of pets being left in vehicles with the windows rolled up. On days in which the temperature clears 30 C, which happened a couple of times in Estevan last week, an animal can suffer heat exhaustion within a few min-

utes. And if it’s a hot day outdoors, it will be even hotter inside a vehicle. If an animal is suffering from heat exhaustion, Kallis recommends they reduce the animal’s temperature with cool water rather than ice, which she said won’t to help. “You would like to put them in the shade, cool them down as quickly as possible. Get them into a cooler area.” They should also take the animal to a veterinarian as quickly as possible.

EDITORIAL

Here’s hoping for a little competition One of the really disappointing trends that we’ve seen locally in provincial and federal elections has been the lopsided nature of the campaigns. It’s not a knock against the people who have been elected for the federal Conservative Party since 2006, or the provincial Saskatchewan Party since 2007. But these are elections that have been marked by decisive victories. And it becomes tough for the other parties to find credible candidates. Why would a candidate want to put in a legitimate amount of work, only to finish second with 15 per cent of the vote? Not only that, but if they have serious political aspirations for the future, these decisive results will be online forever. That’s not to say we haven’t had a few credible, hard-working candidates in recent votes. Vicky O’Dell was an excellent candidate for the New Democratic Party (NDP) in the 2015 election, and it was a shame she barely finished ahead of the phantom candidate the Liberals threw at us. Paul Carroll did a great job as the Progressive Conservative candidate in the 2016 provincial election, and nearly finished second, which would have been the best result for the PCs in an election in a long time. (Cameron Robock was working hard as the candidate for the NDP in 2016, but he was unfortunately turfed by the party as their

candidate at the start of the campaign, and didn’t garner much support as an independent). But generally, the pickings have been slim for local voters who aren’t backers of the Tories federally or the Sask. Party provincially. This brings us to the 2019 federal election. Robert Kitchen won Souris-Moose Mountain in a landslide four years ago. It was said before the election that he went through a tougher fight to win the Tories nomination a year earlier. It went to a fifth and final ballot before Kitchen emerged victorious in a six-candidate race. One of those candidates for the 2014 Tory nomination was Phil Zajac, who announced last week that he will be the Souris-Moose Mountain hopeful for the People’s Party of Canada, the recently-formed right-of-centre party with former Conservative leadership hopeful Maxime Bernier as its leader. Zajac has already set about showing he’s serious. He was at the Saskatchewan Oil and Gas Show in Weyburn last week, introducing himself to exhibitors and voicing his support for the energy sector. And he’s been seen at other events in the riding. It’s an encouraging sign to see at least somebody trying. And in Zajac’s case, he’s going to have to work tirelessly in the next four months if he expects to win. Kitchen was nominated for the 2019 federal election more than 18 months ago.

And he has the incumbent’s advantage. People recognize his name. He’s been on the ballot for a federal election before. And he’s the guy for the established right-of-centre party. When you consider that the People’s Party of Canada is a fledgling party that has been around for less than a year, it’s particularly important to have a slate of hard-working candidates who can articulate their platform. It’s not a time to have phantom candidates. This editorial is not an endorsement of Kitchen, Zajac or their respective parties, or any other party for that matter. But it is encouraging to see someone has shown a willingness to work hard, to challenge not only the governing Liberals on some issues, but the Tories on some others. Hopefully, the federal Liberals, New Democratic Party and the Green Party can also give us candidates worth supporting. It would be nice to see them field local candidates, not parachutes from Regina or Saskatoon. It would be nice to see them give us people willing to work, rather than phantoms who are merely token candidates. (It would be a bonus to hear them all go to bat for the industries that make this constituency what it is, but a couple of parties don’t seem intent on doing so). The people of Souris-Moose Mountain deserve to have people worth voting for, instead of people who will just be fodder for the Tories.

The oilpatch, and Alberta, saved Newfoundland This year, the Saskatchewan Oil and Gas Show (also referred to as the Weyburn Oil Show) went all out in getting guest speakers, and they surely did not disappoint. In the movie about the Watergate scandal, All the President’s Men, the secret source, Deep Throat, implores the intrepid journalists to “follow the money.” That is a notion Vivian Krause has done at great length over many years, and finally, in the last seven months or so, people have finally stood up and taken notice. Krause has exposed the deep ties behind funding of various campaigns to landlock Canadian oil. She should be a rock star in the oilpatch, and I think she’s gaining a bit of that fame. She had very good attendance during her presentation, much better than most of the speakers I’ve seen over the last decade. But it was the acerbic Rex Murphy, formerly of CBC and who does not appear to miss his former employer, who truly enraptured his audience on June 6. Indeed, he wore his disdain for the Mother Corp, as it is known, quite clearly on his sleeve, especially their fawning for “Bishop Suzuki.” To be clear, Rex Murphy is a Newfoundlander. He was not born a Canadian. He was born a Newfoundlander, when the Rock was still its own dominion, a sovereign state. He only became a Canadian at the age of 2, when the nearly destitute nation was absorbed into Canada as its 10th province. But you wouldn’t know that from his speech. Indeed, he is a Canadian through and through, and he spoke about unity. It was destitution that was very much a theme of his riveting speech. He spoke of how Newfoundland, and its people, were laid low by the cod fishing moratorium of 1992. With no work at home, in desperation, he estimated

From the Top of the Pile BRIAN ZINCHUK over 30,000 Newfoundlanders went west to find jobs. Many stayed in the order of a decade. “Employment is not just a damn paycheque. It is the spine of most people’s existence,” Murphy said. I should note that usually at these events, the speaker has to speak above the crowd. This time, you could hear a pin drop. And that crowd was easily twice as large as what one usually expects for one of these luncheon speakers. “Outside of family life itself, and mortality, I don’t think there’s anything more savage to the human personality than someone who wishes to work and has been working, and works no more. And then they have to face the humiliations of either borrowing, begging, or going on some government program. Most people guard their dignity by their own self-reliance,” he said. Murphy’s message was that when things were at their most bleak, those people came west. And we, in the west, with our oil and gas, had jobs. And paycheques. And as a result, these people were able to maintain, or reclaim, their dignity. “It was one of the great moments of confederation that all people from all over Canada were summoned to the western provinces. And people from provinces who had never intermingled before, were working on the same project, or allied projects,” Murphy said. And he’s right. I’ve worked on pipelines with Newfoundlanders. The commanding officer of the air cadet unit I was a part of in North

Battleford called Fortune, Newfoundland, home. She was part of this great diaspora, and her sister and parents came, too. They came to the west, where there was work to be had. She spent many years as a grain buyer, if you can believe. But I digress. Murphy took expected potshots against Neil Young, Leonardo DiCaprio and Catherine McKenna. He spoke to the crowd about the absurdities of the movement against oil. Where were the protests against Russian oil? Or Nigerian? Why the “jihad against pipelines?” He noted, “I cannot figure out. I do not know what processes are going on, in what strange minds, that has turned almost the entire energy of the country, especially at government level, and especially at various NGOs (non governmental organizations) and self-appointed monitors of the earth’s doom, that has made the oil industry the number one villain of the entire world.” Rex Murphy has had the courage to tell Canadians for many years the truths many don’t want to acknowledge. Fundamentally, he told the audience of the Saskatchewan Oil and Gas Show, rightly, that they were good people, doing good work, and providing good jobs. That was a message they needed to hear. We, as Canadians need to hear it. In my own, much less impressive way, I gave a similar speech in tone and message a year ago. We, in the oilpatch, are not Darth Vader. We are not the devil. This is what we need to stand up and say. And I am so glad I got to sit in the front row to hear it. Brian Zinchuk is editor of Pipeline News. He can be reached at brian.zinchuk@sasktel.net.

Ana Bykhovskaia Twenty Lines About…

What is to be an ally? I have a girlfriend. We were close friends at some point, but later our life paths took us different directions. We tried to stay in touch, chatted every so often and checked on each other. Not that long ago we were exchanging the news when she told me that she has found out that she is gay. Turned out that she understood that part of her identity a few years ago. I don’t think I had much of a reaction. I was definitely happy that she found herself and it seemed that she was quite happy. And I was grateful that she shared it with me. But I also had a few inner thoughts and questions in my head. First, this situation once again reminded me that, on the one hand, our sexuality is not as static as we often tend to believe. Unless we educate ourselves and feel safe enough to question our identity, we may not be fully aware of what is going on inside. And when we prefer to remain blindsided and not see the other sides, we may not know all the different nuances of who we are and probably would try to suppress any doubts. On the other hand, the topic of sexual and gender diversity has been closeted for so long, that when the conversation finally starts happening it feels that it’s some 20th century invention. As if the diversity in our world and in our species haven’t existed throughout the times. People have been identifying themselves in countless ways. Diversity has always been here. The safety wasn’t. These thoughts have brought me back to the situation with my friend. I started wondering what made her feel unsafe with me so she didn’t talk about her discovery for a few years. I never called myself an ally. (A person of one identity group who stands up and supports another group. Usually, ally is a member of a dominant or privileged group who supports those who belong to the oppressed group, discriminated against or treated unjustly). And I’ve never owned an A-pin (maybe because I belong to different groups depending on the situation). But I tried to act as an ally when I could. Or I thought that I tried. I guess I failed to a point with my friend, but it made me do more research, try to understand the concept deeper and become more conscious of what I say and what I do. So what it means at all to be an ally? Well, I guess the briefest description of being an ally is to be able to shut up and to speak up. Might be a bit frustrating, but that’s what it is. Let’s break it up. Being an ally means to catch the moment when you stop talking and listen, trying to hear people’s perspective when they are talking about how you or others hurt them (even if it was not an intention). Being an ally means understanding your privilege (a multilayered word that often causes a lot of irritation and is hard to deal with, especially when your own life isn’t quite milk and honey. But that probably will be the topic for a different column). Being an ally means watching the language you use and not only jokes you tell, but jokes you laugh at. To be an ally one needs to understand the history and how and why the system of oppression was built. And as a result to understand how you benefit from the system at the expense of others. So if you feel that you are trying to justify the situation in which someone else is hurting, just try to keep quiet for a moment and try to see that oppressive colonial monster. And when you see and understand that system, you need to speak up. It doesn’t mean to report back. Don’t tell a person sharing with you about your friends telling homophobic jokes, that’s reporting back. To speak up doesn’t mean to speak over and use your authority, it means to use your voice as an avenue. It means to use the knowledge you received while listening to help others see and understand why inequality hurts everyone. When someone says something racist, culturally inappropriate or homophobic, you question that person where it comes from. Just open the discussion. That will help all of us move forward. Being an ally is not only about the LGBTQ2S community. It’s about any inequality. Once you understand the system of oppression, you see how ugly it is and how life can be more beneficial for everybody without it. And it’s everybody’s job to educate, question, talk… I don’t identify myself with political parties or streams. And even though such terms as oppression, privilege, ally and others received a lot of political connotation (since they are quite popular in political discourse, especially when we talk liberals or progressive), but in reality, they are not about politics. They are about us being humans, making mistakes, realizing mistakes, sharing, caring and moving forward. They are about people learning again how to be and to build an inclusive community, a safe space where everyone matters and people support each other. So to be an ally is to act, be conscious and create change.

EAR HEALTH TIPS S BROUGHT TO YOU BY PAHC

Two people arrested for trying to evade police The Estevan Police Service (EPS) made a couple of arrests on June 5 for attempting to evade officers. During a patrol, officers spotted three motorcycles travelling on King Street at a very high rate of speed. One of them was found to be going about 85 kilometres per hour (km/h). The motorcyclists turned onto Bannatyne Avenue, and one of them abandoned their bike around George Street. The EPS called the K9 unit to track the suspect, but

officers were able to determine who the owner of the motorcycle was based on the registered owner information. The subject, a 22-yearold man, was located a short time later at his residence, and was taken into custody. He was held in cells pending an investigation. During the investigation, another subject arrived at the scene and tried to talk to police and convince them that he was piloting the bike. Members sorted out the story and realize he was not being truthful, and was

trying to mislead the police to prevent them from being able to determine who the actual driver was. “When things like that happen, of course, you’re looking at public mischief because it’s against the law to mislead the police, especially during the course of an investigation,” said Deputy Police Chief Murray Cowan. The 53-year-old man could have been charged for obstruction of justice, but police ultimately decided to charge him for misleading a police officer and mischief.

Marion Ellson jury trial begins in Estevan Jury selection took place Monday in Estevan for the trial of Marion Verna Ellson. She was arraigned on four charges in Estevan Court of Queen’s Bench, pleading not guilty to all of them. Those charges included possession of carfentanil for the purpose of trafficking,

possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a firearm without a licence, and unlawful storage of a firearm in a careless manner. The weapon is question was a Mossberg .22 rifle. The charges stem from Oct. 7, 2017, at Frobisher.

The initial jury pool of 95 completely filled the upper floor courtroom in the Estevan Court House. The Mercury counted 11 noshows as the row call was taken. Potential jurors were excused due to age, not being a Canadian citizen, being hard of hearing, and other

“He was obviously aware that the incident had occurred and he approached the members to try to mislead them to make them believe that it was someone else who was operating that bike,” said Cowan. Once the stories didn’t match, officers had enough grounds to make the arrest. An investigation is ongoing, and the EPS is looking for other people who were involved in the incident. “ They do have some leads in regards to the other bikes,” said Cowan.

Stan Milford discusses the Saskatchewan Morgan Horse Show and the beautiful animals

By Ana Bykhovskaia abykhovskaia@estevanmercury.ca

Over 40 horses were entered to participate in 95 classes during the 16th annual Saskatchewan Morgan Horse Open Show in Estevan. Horse riders and drivers from all over Saskatchewan met at the Exhibition Grounds to compete and socialize. The cold weather Estevan experienced on Saturday forced some classes to move inside, yet in general, the entire event went as planned. The Mercury talked to the Saskatchewan Morgan

Horse Club’s first vice-president Stan Milford. Not only was he personally involved in the show last weekend, but his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren also participated in it. Milford talked about how he became a member of the Saskatchewan Morgan Horse Club. “I was very much involved in pony chuckwagons, and as I started getting a little older, I got into (Saskatchewan) Morgan Horse (Club) as a kind of a retirement type of thing. And I started showing.”

Milford doesn’t show on horseback, preferring to compete in driving classes. Besides participating in the show, he and his family also have been breeding horses for quite a few years. As a result, there were a lot of horses involved in the show this year, which came from his farm. “We raised quite a few Morgans trying to populate the country. There is still not very many around,” said Milford. Through his years of involvement with horses Milford participated in countless events and at some point was

Due to cold weather some classes were happening indoors. Photo by Anastasiia Bykhovskaia even invited to the Queen City to show the Royal Family around. “Fortunately, at one time I got to go to Regina and haul the government people around. Never the Queen, but Princess Anne and Governor General and a few of them. It was a great thing,” remembered Milford. He brought his horses over to haul the carriage that belongs to the government. He also owns a similar beautiful carriage, but they only use it for weddings and parades. Milford’s family was at

the show with five carts and a wagon, but there wasn’t much competition in their classes to make participation more challenging. Some classes were better represented than others, but in most cases, there were at least a few competitors in each class to motivate participants to do their best. “Some of our classes are down,” said Milford. “I guess

the weather isn’t really 100 per cent, but at the same time people are just maybe having a hard time getting out with everything that’s going on.” Milford also noted that their classes were the strongest and there was a little more interest towards the show throughout the province off the start, back in the 2000s.

Rain or Shine, T&T Rods a great car gathering By Ana Bykhovskaia abykhovskaia@estevanmercury.ca

T&T Rods Show and Shine was another exciting and fun day for the Estevan community. Over 100 collectables of all sorts took their spots on the grounds about 13 kilometres north of the Energy City. Talented local youth rock band CøldStare was entertaining the crowd. And a bunch of cute dogs were welcoming participants and guests of the 17th annual big car show held by Gervais family. The traditional motor blow up and tire burns outs were a lot of fun. Outram/ Madigan Beef 4H Club made sure that nobody was hungry supplying hotdogs and burgers and doing some fundraising. The St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation joined the event with sweet treats for sale, and the Royal Canadian Legion brought their contest truck over. Altogether there were 118 participants. On this colder day the numbers went down a little bit in comparison to the last year, yet guests weren’t less excited. People came from all over Saskatchewan. Some were flying down the road, revitalizing powerful motors that were sitting in their garages most of the year, others were slowly and carefully driving their beautiful retro cars to assure no chips or scratches on the paint. The show started at 10 a.m. and the first wave of local participants came earlier, while the second crowd driving from Regina and other distant areas started arriving around noon. Passionate about their vehicles, drivers were hanging around their cars and trucks, open to tell the stories behind these beautiful beasts. The Gervais family also opened their yard to visitors, so people sharing Gervais’ passion for all kind of rides could walk through the decades of history of the vehicle industry and enjoy the variety of shapes, styles and sets. For pictures and a video see www.estevanmercury.ca.

Dean Pylypuk joins southeast Saskatchewan legends Note: Long-time Estevan based regulator Dean Pylypuk was honoured as a Southeast Saskatchewan Legend on June 5 at the Saskatchewan Oil and Gas Show in Weyburn. Pylypuk’s biography was read by Minister of Energy and Resources Bronwyn Eyre. A more detailed version will appear in the August edition of Pipeline News. Before he became the regional manager for Area 4 (southeast Saskatchewan) with the Ministry of Energy and Resources, Dean Pylypuk worked his way up on the drilling rigs, working in western Canada, the Artic Islands and overseas. Pylypuk grew up in Raymore, where his father was a general contractor and his mother owned and operated a hair dressing salon. Graduating in 1972, he went pipelining for Moosominbased Shamrock Construction, doing main line rural gasification. That winter he went drilling in the Mackenzie delta, where he was introduced to the oilpatch. He worked with Regent Drilling, and the following summer he drove lowbed truck for United Pipeline. The Arctic islands were his next destination, working on a drilling rig with Gustavson Artic Drilling on Cameron and Melville Islands for Panarctic Oils. There he worked in the Bent Horn Field. There were 10 to 12 rigs working there in the

high arctic, drilling onshore and offshore. In 1975 Pylypuk married Laura Anderson of Serath, Sask. She was an elementary teacher until they moved overseas. The Arctic work lasted from 1975 to 1979. From there Pylypuk went to Northern Ireland as a toolpush on a land rig. They weren’t drilling for oil, rather, it was a geothermal energy project. It was the deepest well in Ireland at the time, looking for a hot reservoir at 8,000 feet. Cornwall, England, was the next stop, another geothermal project for the Cameron School of Mines. His last overseas work was in in Holland, managing a rig drilling natural gas wells for Petroland, the Dutch subsidiary of Elf Oil out of France. Pylypuk joined the Petroleum Development Branch of the then Department of Energy and Mines in June 1984, a career that allowed him to be home with his family. He has worked continuously as a provincial regulator out of the Estevan office and in 2004, he was appointed regional manager. The job of regulator has been fundamentally the same, no matter who is in government. Pylypuk’s lengthy experience lends to a wider perspective. While some might consider 30 rigs working in the area to be a low number now,

he remembers when the same number of rigs was considered boom times. “Things go up, they go down,” he learned. “You have to be drilling to stay in the game, and it cycles up and down.” During the following 35 years, Pylypuk saw oil go down to $8 a barrel and up to $147 a barrel. The spike in oil prices coincided with the Bakken boom in southeast Saskatchewan, with a billion dollars in land sales in that region in 2008. They were extremely busy, especially as this was before the implementation of online business processes. It made for some long days. One week saw 105 drilling rigs working in Area 4, southeast Saskatchewan. On the regulatory standpoint, Pylypuk has found Saskatchewan has become

much more environmentally conscious, an example being the elimination of flare pits in 2001. One thing that has changed has been the incredible increase in drilling rig efficiency, especially with bit technology and solids control. Wells that took 14 days are now done in five. He saw this himself back when he was drilling in England, when his rig completed a 16-month drilling program in nine months. A graduate of the University of Regina Extension Program, Pylypuk has two certificates in administration and has been a member of the Saskatchewan Applied Science Technologists and Technicians since 1987. Pylypuk and Laura have three children and three grandchildren.

Dean Pylypuk was among the legends honoured at this year’s Saskatchewan Oil and Gas Show.

Preparing the lobster Mike LaCoste was among the volunteers who prepared the lobster during the Rotary Club of Estevan’s annual lobsterfest on Friday night at Affinity Place. A fresh, whole Atlantic lobster was served to more than 750 people at the event. Proceeds will be donated to Rotary’s projects in the community and around the world.

Grass and dumpster fires kept firefighters busy at the end of last week Two fires happened in Estevan last week. The first one was a grass fire in south Estevan that occurred in the evening of June 6. It was likely caused by a discarded cigarette butt. Rick Davies, the deputy fire chief with the Estevan Fire Rescue Service (EFRS), said firefighters were called to the scene along the Highway 47 South service road at about 6:30 p.m. Once on scene, they found a small grass fire happening, which they quickly extinguished. “It was just the ditch in

between the service road and the (highway), so there were no structures threatened, nothing like that. It was a very small fire,” explained Davies. They spent about 15 minutes at the scene. Highway 47 in the vicinity was briefly closed off because the smoke generated by the fire caused reduced visibility. Davies said the initial investigation showed a cigarette was likely the cause. The second fire occurred on June 7 at about 7 p.m. Fire

crews were called to a business in the southeast part of the city. “We found a fully involved dumpster fire. Crews responded with our engine and our tanker and extinguished the fire,” said Davies. Earlier on June 7, at about 4:30 p.m., the crews were dispatched to the commercial fire alarm on the east side of Estevan. “Crews responded. It turned to be false of nature. Nothing was found,” said Davies. In addition, fire crews

continued with their regular training. “Tuesday evening, June 4, we carried on, we did another module for the 1001 (the National Fire Protection Association standard) training. And it was all related to portable fire extinguishers,” said Davies. On top of that, through-

out the week volunteer firefighters attended the station to do some annual hose testing. And on June 7 in the afternoon, the EFRS sent a fire truck over to Pleasantdale School for a community event. “After the track and field day we set up the hose line and sprayed the kids off for the day,”

said Davies. Davies said there still isn’t a risk of fire bans coming into effect and as of the end of the week, Estevan was at the moderate fire danger level. The area has been hovering in and out of the extreme fire risk range, but there is enough moisture to avoid a fire ban.

There’s already produce growing at the Estevan Community Garden If somebody passes by the Estevan Community Garden, they will see that some fruits and vegetables are already starting to appear. The community garden has 18 raised garden beds on its property on Lynd Crescent. Hanna Keating, who is a member of the community garden’s board, said the garden is in good shape, and they have received some precipitation in the past week, which has been welcomed by the gardeners. But a lack of water was not an issue for the members even before last week.They used to have a watering system in place with three smaller storage tanks, but thanks to the efforts of Jim and Chantelle Harris, arrangements were made for one giant water tank, which is a new addition to the garden. “We have hoses and it’s a matter of just turning the tap and dragging the hose down to your bed, and then we can water as much as we need to,” Keating said. They recommend to not water in the heat of the day. Early mornings and evenings are the best time. The water is purchased from Steam Est, who Keating said will fill the water tank on short notice. Keating has seen members planting a little bit of everything this year, including lots of tomatoes, strawberries, potatoes, beans, peas, radishes, squash, pumpkins and herbs. “People put everything in there, and if you name it, you’ll find it growing in somebody’s bed,” said Keating with a laugh. Some eager green thumbs had their seeds planted before the Victoria Day long weekend, so they have a head start on the rest. Other members only planted in late May or early June. “We’re going to have all stages of produce happening there in the garden this summer,” she said. This year also marks a milestone for the community garden. It was formed in 2014, and so they will have a fiveyear anniversary open house celebration on July 13. “We’re going to invite the public and some special guests, and we’re going to have some

Some fruits and vegetables are already starting to appear. refreshments and some goodies, and maybe digging in the big sand pile for treasures for any children that are there,” said Keating. “There are going to be some fun kids’ activities.” A short program will also be part of the event. By the middle of July, the community garden expects everything to be growing, so it should be a fun time. Keating has a hard time believing the community garden has been open for five years. “It seems like yesterday we started,” she said. “Now we have five years under our belt, and we’re still going strong and everything is really good.” Keating is among those who have been part of the community garden since the outset, and while some people have been there from Day 1, the garden has also gone through some changes in terms of its board, the people who use the

raised garden beds and the size of the garden itself. The community garden offers a place for people to have a garden who normally wouldn’t have the opportunity. “ There was a family

there the other night, and they moved here from Regina and they’re living in an apartment. They came from a house with a big yard and a big garden, and they’re thrilled to be able to have a community garden spot.”

The federal government must conduct a thorough economic impact assessment before taking steps to implement a national single-use plastics ban, according to the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB).

Estevan Comprehensive School track and field athletes impress at provincial meet By David Willberg dwillberg@estevanmercury.ca

Twenty-two members of the Estevan Comprehensive School’s track and field team competed at the Saskatchewan High School Athletics Association’s provincial championships in Moose Jaw on Friday and Saturday. Hunter Wallster, a Grade 11 student at the school, won a gold medal in the discus with a distance of 46.46 metres, which was more than five metres better than the silver medallist, Nicholas Bertoia of North Battleford. He also won silver in the shot put with a distance of 13.21 metres. Coach Kelly Phillipchuk said Wallster is a fantastic athlete. “He threw really well. He will compete as a senior again next year,” said Phillipchuk, who noted that Wallster has been competing at events across the country. Numerous other students had top 10 results. In midget boys, Adullahl Dairo was fifth in the 200 metres with a time of 24.29 seconds, seventh in the hurdles at 14.76 seconds and eighth in the 100 metres at 12.05 seconds; while Sam Meek was seventh in the shot put at 12.16 metres. Phillipchuk was particularly imparessed with Dairo’s efforts, and pointed out that if not for an dropped exchange in the relay event, Dairo might have won a medal. “He’s one to watch for

Parker Lavoie, left, and Hunter Wallster competed in the shot put event at track and field provincials. Photo submitted next year,” said Phillipchuk. Jaslyn McNabb was seventh in the midget girls high jump at 1.40 metres. In junior boys events, Aden Haywood was eighth in the 3,000 metres with a time of 10 minutes and 11.01 seconds, and 10th in the 1,500 metres with a time of 4:39.37. Hunter Eagles finished fifth in the junior boys quadathlon, which is a fourdiscipline event that includes the 100 metres, 800 metres, shot put and long jump. In senior girls, Sarah

Dacuycuy was fifth in the triple jump at 10.46 metres and Nicole Kistanov was sixth in the long jump at 4.94 metres. Parker Lavoie was eighth in the senior boys shot put with a distance of 12.69 metres. Other ECS athletes who competed were Khenan Colbow, Clark Cabiluna, Mason Kukura and Alec Waldegger (midget boy s); Hannah Hjortland, Tiana Seeman and Lauren Kobitz (midget girls); Curtis Phillipchuk and Hunter Eagles (junior boys);

Chelsea McLenehan and Sydney McKenzie (junior girls); and Shanelle Rioux and Taylor Haux (senior girls). Kelly Phillipchuk said they had a really good year, and the kids put in a lot of work to be ready for provincials. The midget division is comprised of Grade 9s and a few Grade 10s, juniors is for the remaining Grade 10s and some Grade 11s, while the senior division is Grade 12s and some Grade 11s. Phillipchuk said the experience should pay off down the line for the Grade 9s. “They get to see everyone warming up. They get to see elite athletes competing. They get to see events like the pole vault that they’ve never seen before and relay races at the end.” Some of the athletes were competing in more than one sporting event during the weekend. Some had baseball in Moose Jaw at a facility close to where track and field provincials as well. The tournament was also good weather-wise. They have had years in which there has been hail or stifling heat. And they avoided rain that other areas received. While it the best showing ECS has had at provincials, Phillipchuck is still pleased with how the team performed. “In terms of the quality of our team, we’re sending good athletes there every year now,” he said. “We’re enjoying practices, the kids are working hard and the results are really

good. We’ve set the bar high, and yearly we’re trying to send a great bunch of athletes.” The team members have been practising four days a week for the past two months, and sometimes on weekends. Many of them had personal bests on the weekend. “When you get to go to that stage, and everyone else is running hard, then you run

harder,” he said. The Panteluk Athletic Field and Chamney Family Running Track, which was constructed for the 2016 Saskatchewan Summer Games, has made a huge difference for the team. “To have the track, to have the pits, to have the equipment has been a huge for us,” said Phillipchuk.

Young football players display talents at combine For the first time, Penta Completions Estevan Minor Football (EMF) held a talent combine in conjunction with its registration weekend. Young people showcased their abilities in several different facets of the sport on Saturday and Sunday at Woodlawn Athletic Park’s Dana Quewezance Field. Minor football board member Kevin Mortenson said they wanted to try something different this year during registration. “It’s a little fun and games for the kids to get them football ready,” said Mortenson. “We know they’re going to be getting out of school here soon.” Many of them are still playing soccer or baseball, but it doesn’t hurt to have them thinking about the upcoming football season. Youths went through such drills as the broad jump, the shuttle run, the 40-yard dash and a three-cone drill. While it wasn’t a competitive situation, the coaches still took notes on the kids’ results, because it will help the EMF

determine positions. “If the kid ran the 40 in a good time, we’ll probably want him as a wide receiver,” said Mortenson. “We want to

do some evaluation and get to know the kids as well.” About 40 kids were there each day. Some participated in the combine both days, while

others were out just once. President Paul Duncan said they have a lot of fresh faces this season, especially in the atom division, and

the combine gives the EMF a chance to see where the youngsters are at and the skill sets they have. “We want to make sure

Participants in the skills combine hosted by Penta Completions Estevan Minor Football go for a run.

that we’re giving all kids an equal opportunity to showcase their skillsets that they have, and make sure that as we grow as a program, we’re going to start taking data in to make sure we can help kids in that way and see how they’ve grown,” said Duncan. About 60 kids registered for minor football this weekend. It’s not too late to sign up for the upcoming season, either. They will take kids for the bantam program by Aug. 1, and if they don’t have enough kids for 12-player football, they can compete in the nine-player league. The peewees and atoms will accept players until just before the start of the season. Mortenson expects the combine will become an annual event for minor football. “We had a good turnout, the kids are happy. They had a lot of fun yesterday. The rain kind of put a damper on today, and there was 30 seconds of hail.” Still, though, it helped minor football gain a sense of what they have for the upcoming season.

Elecs football team prepares for 2019 season The Estevan Comprehensive School (ECS) Elecs football team had a long look at the future of the program during their annual spring camp. Practices were held from June 4-7, and a scrimmage happened June 10. All activities were held at the practice field south of the school. “We’ve been really impressed with the turnout. We have more than 40 players that have the equipment and have attended at least a portion of the camp, so that’s really encouraging for next year,” said head coach Mark Schott. The players have been very coachable and eager to learn. “There are a lot of young players, and that’s exciting, because those young players are the future of our program,” said Schott. A large number of young

Offensive co-ordinator Ryan Jutras speaks to players during spring camp. players should be expected, thanks to rule changes from Football Canada which

require high school-aged football players to play at that level. They no longer

have bantam football as an option. The Elecs also had returning players on the field, even though many had scheduling conflicts with the provincial track and field championships and other events. It allowed veteran players to mix in with the potential rookies. “Our veteran players are really emerging as some excellent leaders, and have been quite welcoming of our new players,” said Schott. Graduating player Kolby Janssen has been helping out with coaching and guid-

ing defensive drills. The practices allowed players to work on fundamentals of their positions and build on their skills. “It’s also important that our players get a sense of what it’s like to tackle and to be tackled, and so that’s been an emphasis for us,” said Schott. They also taught the players some basic offensive and defensive plays so they could run those plays in the scrimmage. The coaches will encourage players to attend a football camp that is avail-

able during the summer months. Some have attended camps south of the border in the past, while others have gone to camps elsewhere in Saskatchewan. They also encouraged players to continue with the training during the summer months, so that they’re ready for the start of high school football season in September. If players want to play high school football but were unable to attend the camp, then Schott said it’s not too late for them to register to play in the fall.

7 Tips to Ease your Low Back Pain TODAY

(without relying on medications, frequent trips to your doctor, or surgery)

Did you know?? • Experts estimate that up to 80% of the population will experience back pain at some time in their lives. • Back pain can affect people of all ages, from adolescents to the elderly. • Back pain is the third most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office. • Most cases of back pain are mechanical-meaning they are not caused by serious conditions, such as inflammatory arthritis, infection, fracture or cancer.

Here are 3 of the 7 Tips to Ease your low back pain TODAY. (Watch for next week ‘s newspaper, where you will learn the last 4 Tips): 1. Rest is not Best! One of the worst things you can do to treat your low back pain is to rest. Laying or sitting for extended periods of time actually does the opposite, prolonging low back pain and stiffness. Going for a daily 20 minute walk keeps you mobile, your joints lubricated, and muscles functioning optimally. 2. Ice or Heat? Ice and heat may provide you with short-term pain relief. Use an ice pack or frozen bag of peas. Place inside of a pillow case or towel and put on your low back for 10-20 minutes or until the area goes numb. Heat can be provided by a hot bath, shower, or hot pack and is great to loosen up tight muscles, especially in the low back. When using a hot pack, place on the area of your low back pain but do not lay on it. This results in too much heat conducting onto your skin and may result in a burn. You can also alternate between ice and heat. Find out what works the best for you!

3. Maintain Good Posture It’s not all about sitting up straight. Your spine has natural curves that must be maintained to achieve good alignment. If any of the curves are compromised, it results in poor posture. Make sure your chair is high enough that your hips are

If you are short and your feet do not touch the floor, then use a footrest to achieve the same alignment. You should be sitting on your ‘sit bones’, not your tailbone. Your low back should have a slight curve inwards, mid back outwards, and your chin should not be ‘poking’ forwards.

Estevan Pride Week celebrated diversity

Over 20 people gathered by the City Hall in Estevan on Friday afternoon for the Pride flag raising and dedication ceremony. It was among the 2019 Estevan Pride Week’s final events. Education co-ordinator with Saskatchewan Pride Network Laura Budd talked about what else was happening in Estevan that week. “The week has been really good. We’ve had events at the … Estevan Comprehensive School as well as at the (Estevan Art Gallery and) Museum and just discussions going on around the community all week,”said Budd. The Pride Week Paint Party at the EAGM took place on Tuesday night. “They kicked off their community space and give space for LGBTQ people to come in and do painting evening and display their artwork,” said Budd. ECS had a flag raising on Wednesday at noon. People

from Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) and other speakers talked about what it means to have a gay-straight alliance and about Pride Week in the community. Budd noted that after four years of having annual events in Estevan they can see the progress. “It’s pretty good. People are starting to get comfortable with having a conversation. We’ve always known that there are LGBTQ2S plus people in Estevan and area, but now it’s a little more open,” said Budd. During her opening speech at Friday’s ceremony, Budd also talked about Pride Week’s mission of starting a conversation, creating safe space and raising awareness. She noted that being a part of the LGBTQ2S community is still illegal in 72 countries around the world. “LGBTQ2S is still a crime in many of these countries… Just Saturday, May 18, 2019, Muhlaysia Booker was found shot to death in Dallas, Texas, just for being a trans woman of colour. She has committed no other crime but being visible enough,” recalled Budd.

She explained that rainbow flags, pride crosswalks, parades and “pretty” cakes are important because the diversity they symbolize is not yet fully welcome in many communities. “Let us celebrate that this week is the Pride Week in the City of Estevan. We celebrate diversity, we welcome it, we honour all people of difference,” said Budd. The opening speech was followed by greetings and speeches by Karly Garnier, education and outreach program co-ordinator with the EAGM, who said the art gallery is proud to be a safe and inclusive place for all people in Estevan. “We are here for you even if you just need a place to come with friends,” said Garnier. Estevan Police Deputy Chief Murray Cowan was speaking on behalf of the city police and the City of Estevan and Mayor Roy Ludwig, who couldn’t make it on Friday since he had to attend meetings in Regina. Cowan said that Estevan very much supports diversity,

and the topic is very important. “That’s something that’s still growing in our community and we all still need to learn,” said Cowan. Police Chief Paul Ladouceur said that supporting these kinds of events and educating people about diversity is the only way to move forward. And this process is still far from being accomplished. “The deputy said, everyone supports it (Pride Week). We all know that’s not true. We need to get people educated... And events like this certainly do that,” said Ladouceur. He also promised to push for the rainbow crosswalk next year in Estevan, which was met with applause. “You can talk diversity, you can comment on diversity, but it’s actions, not words that truly make a community diverse,” said Ladouceur. Venerable Wilma Woods of St. Giles Anglican Church and St. Paul’s United Church pastor Jason Richards also talked about their perspective on diversity and inclusiveness. And Emily Gillies of Four Pillars said that the new retreat centre is an open to anyone safe space, which she hopes may help to unite diverse community members. The ceremony was followed by a social part of the event sweetened by a special occasion cake. The Estevan Pride 2019 cake, made by the Southern Plains Co-op, had a pink stripe added to the rainbow. Budd explained the meaning behind this colour. “Blue, pink and white are the colours of the trans community, and the pink was added in to welcome both the two-spirit and trans com-

munity as the overall Pride community.” Besides Pride Week, there are events happening throughout the year with GSA and other Saskatchewan Pride Network community partners. But the Pride Week is the biggest event for the Estevan and area LGBTQ2S community. “This is our bigger week to try to promote things within the whole community of Estevan, to raise the flag at the City Hall and just to show the colours that show that visibility for those that need our support and need to know that they are welcome and loved here,” said Budd. People who have ques-

tions, need help or just want to stay connected can always contact the Saskatchewan Pride Network through their website and social media, and call Budd personally. “We do a lot of peersupport and counselling both by phone and email. And when we are in the community (we just come and talk to people),” said Budd. She noted that trans and gender-diverse community is now having a really hard time because of a lot of pushback for gender diversity and serious lack of understanding and education on the topic, so events like Pride Week are very important.

Principal Pat Jeannot will be the MC for the evening, and he will give a brief address to the grads. The diplomas will be handed out to the graduates by Jeannot and vice-principals Nathan Johnson and Brian Wright. “We’re trying to shorten things up so people don’t have to sit so long, and they can get onto the grand march,” said Meyer. Once the ceremony is finished, a light snack will be served to those in attendance. The grand march will begin an hour after the ceremony is finished, likely around 9 p.m. The chem free after grad will run from 10 p.m.-2 a.m. Students will play games of chance using play money that can be used to purchase prizes at the end of the night. The pieces are falling into place for grad, Meyer said. The kids are excited for the big day, but they are also nervous. Meyer believes grad is not only a great night for the school, but it’s a chance for the community to celebrate the graduates’ accomplishments. “We are very proud of our young men and women entering the next phase of their lives,” said Meyer.

The ceremony will start at 6:30 p.m. and is expected to wrap up at 8 p.m. Lori Meyer, who is the ECS spokesperson for this year’s ceremony, said it will start an hour later than previous years. “They’re trying to ensure that people eat before they come,” said Meyer. “We just found it was tough for people to get from work to Affinity if we started at 5:30 or even 6 p.m., so that’s why we moved it to 6:30.” The ceremony will feature several speeches. Tyler Knibbs and Shaun Montebon will give a speech as the class representatives. They were selected by their peers. Also delivering a tribute to the teachers will be Levi Stepp and Nathan Littlefield, who were the co-presidents of the student representative council.

Paws and Claws raised money for the Estevan Humane Society By Ana Bykhovskaia abykhovskaia@estevanmercury.ca

The Paws and Claws vendor market offered a variety of goods to the Estevan community on Saturday, all while raising money for the Estevan Humane Society. The market, which took place at the Elks Club, was organized by Jody Wilson, who also was one of the 21 vendors participating. “The president Angela Prette asked me if I would oversee one (market) for her, and so I just went with it and here we are… Hopefully, it is a success,” said Wilson. The admission was $2, and the raffle table offered a variety of goods provided by vendors and local businesses. Fired up Grill donated taco in a bag for concession and hot dogs were donated by McGillicky Oilfield Construction Ltd. The hall was donated by the Command Fishing & Pipe Recovery Ltd. “ Ever y thing that is

made from the vendor rentals (from vendors renting tables), the concession, admissions and the raffle table, all that money goes towards Humane Society. The vendors take home what they make from their tables, but everything else goes towards Humane Society,” said Wilson. This was the first time Wilson hosted such an event for the Estevan animal shelter and the first time she had to put together a vendor market. “I know a lot of these people from other markets and reached out to them right away and filled up the tables in a hurry,” said Wilson. Despite a busy day in the community, there was a lot of people coming to the market throughout the day. The visitors could find anything from picture printing to outdoor signs, from plastic containers to books, from cookies and bakery to cosmetics and jewellery and many more.

ECS Concrete Jungle were selling their creations along with other vendors at the Paws and Claws market. Photo by Anastasiia Bykhovskaia The market was open to any vendors willing to attend. The ECS business class Concrete Jungle project also joined the event bringing out their succulents and fancy concrete pots over. And the Usborne Books had the longest commute, as the vendor

was coming from Meyronne, special service area west of Assiniboia. “I had a certain amount of tables and my goal was to fill all of them. And I filled every one of them,” said Wilson. Humane Society volun-

teers had their own table at the entrance selling souvenirs, while Jacqueline Cyr and Lisa Walliser were volunteering for the market, selling food at the concession, and Bonnie Gyorfi and Tia Spackman were selling raffle and entrance

tickets at the door. The money raised that day will help the Estevan’s Humane Society, one of the only three non-kill animal shelters in the province, with the daily expenses and will go towards upkeeping the facility.

Mermaids support Salvation Army From left, Nevaeh Wakely and Aivry Culy of the Estevan Mermaids synchronized swim club, Major Wilfred Harbin of the Estevan Salvation Army, and Emily Greening and Sarah Greening of the Mermaids participated in a recent cheque presentation. The Mermaids held their annual water show in April, and had a silver collection at the door. They raised $133.85 for the Salvation Armyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food bank.

EAGM to host two receptions The Estevan Art Gallery & Museum (EAGM) is inviting the public to attend a reception for the two upcoming exhibits. The first exhibit will be Mapping Narratives by Maria Michails, and the other will be EAGM Makerspace â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Community Art Studio. According to a press release for the EAGM, Mapping Narratives is a series of installations that tell the story of two cross-border communities connected by a railway line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The motif of the train is seen throughout as one travels from room to room, experiencing images mapped on surfaces and audio-recorded oral histories embedded in objects,â&#x20AC;? states the news release. The transporting of crude oil from one location in Estevan to the other in Albany, N.Y., is not the only product connecting these two very different communities. From the rural, sparsely populated canola fields of Saskatchewan to the industrial zones of the poor neighborhoods of south end Albany, the air poses chal-

lenges to the well-being of residents in both places. Working co-creatively with the artist, multi-generational participants in Estevan and Albany, lend their stories and their creativity to this exhibit, inviting the visitor to reflect and join the dialogue about the issues of fossil fuels and the multi-layered benefits and consequences. The EAGM Makerspace exhibit is an opportunity for citizens to come to the EAGM, experiment with various art mediums and materials, and create their own piece of art to hang in the gallery. Created works wil l be hung salon-style in the EAGMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gallery II space for the duration of the summer. The show will also feature pieces created in workshops with local schools and residents of senior care homes. The EAGM invites the public to pop into the gallery this summer to make, explore and create in their makerspace. The exhibits will open on June 25, and will continue until Sept. 6.

Police continue impaired driving crackdown The Estevan Police Service (EPS) took another alleged impaired driver off the streets last week. A 32-year-old Regina man was arrested downtown after he left a residence in the 900-block of Fourth Street. He was charged for impaired driving and driving while over .08 after samples 1 1/2 times the legal limit were obtained. In other recent police news, members attended a central Estevan residence on June 2 regarding a female refusing to leave. She left after some discussion. Later in the day, she returned and started causing a disturbance before damaging a vehicle that was parked outside on the street. The 24-year-old Estevan woman was arrested and transported to the police station where she was lodged in cells. She was held until the following morning, at which time she appeared in Estevan Provincial Court to face a charge of mischief under the Criminal Code. Members were dispatched to a central Estevan residence June 3 due to a domestic disturbance in progress. Police spoke

to all involved upon arrival, at which time the matter was resolved without further incident. A 21-year-old Estevan man was arrested and charged June 4 in connection with an incident in which inappropriate images were shared with another individual. He was also charged with breaching the conditions of his undertaking. He was remanded into custody and made his first appearance in Estevan Provincial Court on June 6. Officers were called to the Petterson Point apartments after a theft was reported. Unknown person(s) entered the secured lower parking garage and a number of items were stolen. The matter remains under investigation. During the evening hours, members attended to an eastcentral Estevan residence as a result of a domestic dispute. During the dispute, the windshield of a car was damaged. Police assisted by keeping the peace while alternate living arrangements were made. The matter remains under investigation. Police were called to

northeast Estevan on a report of a male in distress. The 38-year-old Estevan man was transported to St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital where he was assessed and admitted for the night. Police attended to a residence in the downtown core June 5 for a well-being check. As a result, a male was transported to St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital for assessment by medical professionals. Officers are investigating a complaint of a female criminally harassing a male, by repeatedly messaging and driving by his residence. Members arrested and charged a 53-year-old Estevan man June 6 with assault with a weapon and theft under $5,000, after a complaint was received. The male was released on conditions and will appear in Estevan Provincial Court in July to answer to the charges. Police are investigating damage to a mailbox in the 900-block of Fourth Street. Members were called to a local business on a report of a possible impaired driver on June 7. Police were able to locate the vehicle and performed

a standardized field sobriety test on the driver, who passed the test and was sent on their way. Police were then called to a person trespassing on property. Officers attended and spoke to all the people involved and learned there was a property dispute. Police were able to diffuse the situation and an agreement was made in regards to the property. Members then separated the individuals and no further involvement was required. Officers responded to a complaint of a young child who was left in a vehicle at a business on Kensington Avenue. The child was located safe and her parent returned to the car a short time later. The file will be referred to Social Services. Members stopped a motorcycle on Souris Avenue for speeding. A 70-year-old driver was subsequently issued a 72-hour suspension and the motorcycle was impounded after he blew a warning on an approved screening device. Officers impounded a vehicle for 30 days after a traffic stop on Souris Avenue South

and Sixth Street. The driver was found to have had no valid driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licence for five years. A 24-year-old Estevan man was charged with assault after a complaint at a local establishment. He was released with conditions for court in July. Police were notified of a scam on April 8. A caller claimed to be with the Publishers Clearing House, and then requested personal information. Police remind the public not to give out personal information to people who say you won money or prizes. Officers also received a call about an intoxicated person having trouble walking on a street. Police located the

person, who was charged for having open alcohol in public. The individual was then given a ride home and turned over to a sober person. No further action was required. Members arrested a 36-year-old Moose Jaw female on outstanding warrants. She was released for court in July. The EPS reported on June 9 they have received a large number of calls about animals running at large within the city. Police would like to remind pet owners that having their animal running at large and not on a leash could cost them a $100 fine. If their animal bites another animal or person the fine could be $250 plus vet or medical expenses.
