v Cree to English Translaton: Welcome, it is good that you have arrived here in Regina. Note: oskana is the Cree word that means “bones”, or more literally “his or her bones” but it’s used generically as well. The full name of Regina is oskana kâ-asastêki “where the bones are piled”, but the word oskana is what the English spelled as “Wascana”, and the English pronunciation took over shifting the stress from the first to the second syllable. oskana [OOS kun nuh] became Wascana [waas CAN nuh]. tawâw: “welcome, there is room” miywâsin: “it is good” Note: this is the word from which the Meewasin Valley in Saskatoon takes its name. ê-pê-takohtêyan: “that you have arrived here” oskana kâ-asastêki: “Regina; where the bones are piled, Pile-o-Bones”

Cette ville, située au milieu des Prairies canadiennes, offre un éventail d’occasions de vivre en français à des milliers de francophones et francophiles qui y habitent. Plusieurs agences gouvernementales et organismes communautaires embauchent du personnel bilingue pour répondre aux besoins d’une communauté francophone très diversifiée. Le français est soutenu par une série de services communautaires, par les écoles et par les médias de communication. Regina possède une paroisse catholique francophone (la paroisse Saint-JeanBaptiste) une pouponnière et un service de garde francophone (le Centre éducatif Gard’amis), une école fransaskoise (l’École Mgr de Laval- le pavillon primaire

et le pavillon secondaire (Pavillon des quatre vents) ainsi que plusieurs écoles d’immersion française dans les systèmes scolaires catholique et public.

Le centre de service en français du gouvernement de la Saskatchewan permet aux citoyens de la province de communiquer avec la province dans leur langue.

Ce service met aussi à la disposition du public un bon nombre de documents en français. Les associations fransaskoises sont bien représentées dans la capitale et offre une programmation qui enrichit la vie culturelle, éducative et sociale en français. La Saskatchewan est en pleine croissance économique et elle attire beaucoup de personnes venues du reste du Canada et de partout ailleurs au monde. Pour faire face à une vague de nouveaux arrivants francophones qui viennent s’installer dans la capitale Saskatchewannaise, les organismes fransaskois se sont mis ensemble pour former un Réseau de la communauté d’accueil de Regina (RCA-Regina) afin d’offrir un meilleur accueil et accompagnement de ces nouveaux arrivants. C’est au sein d’une communauté dynamique, épanouie et tournée vers l’avenir que les fransaskoises et fransaskois de Regina célèbrent l’année 2012.

Biggest Party Ever

coming Fall of 2013 Photo courtesy Guy D Photography.

I

f history repeats itself, Regina will once again host the biggest party ever on November 24, 2013. The 101st Grey Cup game, being played at Mosaic Stadium, decides the 2013 CFL (Canadian Football League) champions.

The Legacy Project, the first phase of renovations, is already complete, adding 7,000 seats, 27 new corporate suites and a fabulous 60 foot LED screen. Unique to Saskatchewan is a second display screen in the shape of the province.

A new Regina stadium has received all levels of approvals, but is not scheduled for completion until 2017. Mosaic Stadium will receive a face-lift for the 2013 Grey Cup with much of the $14 million renovation already underway.

Phase two renovations will add more temporary seating, bringing the capacity up to 50,000 for the 2013 Grey Cup. This will be the third time Regina has hosted this prestigious event. The first was in 1995, the second in 2003. Both events were huge successes and 2013 is anticipated to be even better, with a week of fun festivities leading up to the big game. The weather could be chilly on November 24, but football fans will be warm from the Saskatchewan Roughrider’s home town hospitality. Go to riderville.com/2013greycup for more exciting information.

folds in the flag were also humidified to reduce crease-lines, although after 100 years of being folded up in a tight space some of the creases remain. The contents of the time capsule were on display to the public this past summer at the Legislative Building.

I

 n 1909, Governor General  Earl Grey and Premier Walter Scott placed a time capsule into the cornerstone at a public ceremony celebrating the construction of the building. Thousands of eager citizens traveled from communities across the young province of Saskatchewan to attend the once in a lifetime event. That feeling of excitement was alive and well on December 15, 2011 when Lieutenant Governor Dr. Gordon L. Barnhart and Premier Brad Wall removed the very same time capsule after more than a century, sealed away at the Saskatchewan Legislative Building. A number of photographs, reports, newspapers, maps, currency and coins were found within

the time capsule which were quickly itemized, surveyed for condition, and photographed. A lot can happen in one hundred years. Fortunately, conditions within the capsule stayed dry, so none of the contents were damaged, and the metal box did not corrode. However, many of the paper items, as well as a flag, had been folded and packed very tightly, leading to crushing and severe creases. Every item was then given a gentle surface cleaning to remove any dust or debris that would contribute to acidity and cause abrasions. The paper documents were then gently humidified so that they could then be unfolded and flattened. The deepest

Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall were among the first to examine the contents of the time capsule during their visit to Regina in May. The Royal Couple then presented a Diamond Jubilee Flag and pin to the Premier for inclusion in the time capsule. The flag was the first item placed into the new time capsule that was installed at the Legislative Building on October 11 at the public anniversary celebration. The removal of the time capsule was just one of many events and programs scheduled throughout the year in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Saskatchewan Legislative Building. For more information on the time capsule or any of the events planned for the Saskatchewan Legislative Building’s 100th anniversary visit, opcc.gov.sk.ca/leg100.

There is something for everyone in Wascana Centre: W

ascana Centre is a 930 hectare area in the heart of Regina. Made up of six parks, Wascana Centre is often referred to as the jewel of the city. One of Wascana Centre’s mandates is to be devoted to conservation of the environment. Within the Centre’s boundaries is an impressive marsh ecosystem that many species of mammals, birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles, insects and plants call

home. It is an extraordinary place to explore nature without leaving the city. During the winter months, Wascana Centre is a beautiful spot for taking a leisurely walk, cross country skiing or tobogganing on one of the many hills. A skating rink is prepared next to the lake near the marina and the Willow on Wascana Restaurant. This lighted skating area also has access to a

heated change room and washroom. The public is cautioned to stay off Wascana Lake due to thin ice dangers. Trafalgar Overlook is located just west of Wascana Place, and directly across the lake from the Legislative Building. It was designed to provide for a stunning view of Trafalgar Fountain from across the lake. Go to www.wascana.ca for details.


On April 1, 2012, Wascana Centre Authority turned 50 years old and it has been a great year of celebration.

Since 1885, tens of thousands of men and women who have

joined the RCMP have passed the gates at Regina’s ‘Depot’ division. In order to don the iconic red serge, cadets from all over Canada spend months in training on the same grounds as many of their predecessors have for more than 125 years.

The RCMP Heritage Centre is located on ‘Depot’s’ front door step and is dedicated to telling the story of the RCMP. Through interactive exhibits, films and programming, as well as tours and live events at ‘Depot’, visitors can experience the past, present and future of the force.

Imprisoned in a cage and desperate to escape, Red Peter, a former ape, reveals his rise through the ranks of the beasts to become a walking, talking, spitting, smoking, hard-drinking man of the stage. Based

on the short story ‘A Report to an Academy’ by Franz Kafka. More information is available at goldenappletheatre.com.

BLUES FESTIVAL

MARCH 2 2013

The 2013 Mid-Winter Blues Festival swings into action February 28 – March 2, 2013, and promises to warm up even the most frigid winter weekend. Featuring renowned blues artists from across Canada, the U.S., and beyond, the Mid-Winter Blues Festival mixes in the best of local blues talent to create three nights of blistering blues. Past headline performers have included Johnny Winter, Downchild Blues Band, Canned Heat, Sonny Landreth, Kenny Neal, and Savoy Brown. Several Juno winners have graced the festival, and the exciting talent keeps on coming for the 2013 festival. And don’t forget to take in Saturday’s afternoon of free blues showcases. The free showcases feature some of Regina’s finest talent, set in an acoustic or intimate setting. What a great way to spend a winter’s Saturday afternoon. Check www.reginablues.ca for full festival details, including performer lineups, venue locations, and ticket information. The sweet sounds of the Mid-Winter Blues Festival are about to descend.

Primal Roots

Beringer Founders’ Estate Cabernet Sauvignon The Beringer Founders’ Estate Cabernet Sauvignon bursts with lush black fruit and intense cassis flavours that complement the baking spice and vanilla aromas. Structured tannins and a long finish make this a wine that can be enjoyed immediately. Pairs with anything from an elegant duck dish to hearty barbeque pork ribs – delicious.

Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum is crafted from only the finest Caribbean rum and select spices, including rich clove spice, and premium cassia bark. It is finished with double charred blackened oak for a taste as legendary as the Captain himself. Best enjoyed on the rocks or blended with cola.

SLGA REGINA STORES

The true essence of Primal Roots begins with the raw qualities of Merlot, Syrah and Zinfandel which are artfully blended to create a smooth, full-bodied, sensual wine. The fruit is harvested at optimal ripeness when the colour, flavours, acids and tannins are all in balance. Oak aging helps build structure while introducing the underlying vanilla, cream and mocha characteristics.

Wiser’s® Spiced Whisky Wiser’s® Spiced Whisky combines the uncompromising taste of Wiser’s® Whisky with a hint of spice. Aromas and flavours of sweet caramelized toffee and dried fruit rounded off with vanilla. It is a great tasting, versatile whisky, perfect for mixing with cola or ginger ale and also as a shooter.

Wascana Centre Services Washrooms (seasonal) Washrooms (year round) Picnic and Barbecue Areas Parking Food Services Wascana Lake Walk Around Wascana Marsh Walk Around Wascana Lake and Marsh Walk Around

Wascana Centre extends over 810 hectares (2,000 acres) of land and 120 hectares (300 acres) of water — a total of 930 hectares (2,300 acres) in the heart of Regina. The Aboriginals used the area around Wascana Creek to dry buffalo meat, clean and stretch the hides. Because buffalo bones were gathered along the creek, the area came to be known as Oscana, a Cree word meaning “pile of bones”. Our name, Wascana, was derived from this Cree word.

This symbol represents organizations and businesses that are Wascana Centre partners. Watch for the symbol throughout the publication.
