Pelletier’s grace the Marysburg stage By Becky Zimmer Journal Editor Fingers were flying in Marysburg on Oct. 16 with Freddie and Sheila Pelletier picking their guitar stings on Oct. 16 at the Assumption Church. Jokes were also the order of the day with Freddie mentioning how he always wanted to be a guitar player in the worst way and then he did. The musical couple have been playing music together for 20 years but played music long before getting together. Freddie been playing the guitar since 1969, says their website, and “played guitar for Ferlin Husky and toured extensively with singer-songwriter, Ian Tyson.” The Pelletier Guitar and Music Camp just outside of Birch Hills was a joint project between Freddie and Sheila and one of their highlights to their career. The camps have given Freddie and Sheila great memories and have also made them known in the Humboldt area. “We have some folks that came to our music camps that we know are going to be at the show.”

Along with past shows in the Humboldt area, Sheila is excited for her Humboldt fans to be given this was opportunity to take in their show on Sunday. The Pellitier’s bring a wide range of music to the stage playing everything from classic country to rock

n’ roll. Those attending can also expect some comedy along with the music. “It’s just a lot of fun and we have some laughs and play some tunes that people will remember.” Freddie and Sheila have also spent the last 15 years playing as a migratory band. Tours during the winter months include trips in their motor home down south to play for the snowbird crowd in resorts in Texas, Arizona, and California. Sheila says they always get love from the snowbirds. “They have more time to view that kind of stuff and they’re looking for things to do. So they hear that someone from home is playing in Mesa, Arizona and so they’re very supportive and we appreciate that.” Just like the snowbirds, Sheila says the tour gives them the opportunity to get away from the cold, Canadian winters. The Pelletier’s, and their motor home, will be following the snowbirds down south with their next show being in Alamo, Texas.

Ottawa gets message that local news matters By Peter Kvarnstrom Guest Contributor Does local journalism matter? You bet it does. Community newspapers employ thousands of journalists, in every corner, across our community and across our great country. They work tirelessly, within our local communities, to bring you stories that matter to you. Their stories about local news, community happenings, births and deaths, civic and regional politics and so much more would otherwise often go untold. Our content is truly unique and is under significant pressure. I had the opportunity to give a 10-minute presentation to the standing committee on Canadian heritage on behalf of Glacier Media. The committee is studying the state of the Canadian media. After decades of watching an industry as it tries to reinvent itself in a digital age, our federal government is sitting up and taking notice. After the Kamloops Daily News, Nanaimo Daily News and the Guelph Mercury closed their doors over the past few years, it seems all levels of government are paying attention. In most cases, we are the only source of local news and information in our communities. There are many sources of regional, national and international news and information, but our industry is the only one to employ journalists in the more than 1,000 communities we serve.

Our work is the only way to hold private and public institutions to account. We believe local journalism and the work we do is vital to ensuring a thriving democracy and civil society. We are not suffering an audience problem. The most recent research tells us that 87 per cent of Canadians are engaging with our content, our stories, weekly. Whether you love us or hate us, most of you are certainly reading us. What can government do to ensure the survival of local newspapers? Firstly, we are not looking for a bailout. What we are looking for is government support as we transition from an industrial business to a knowledge-based one. Federal government advertising has declined by 96 per cent in newspapers over the past decade. Provincial government advertising has followed suit. They choose to spend our tax dollars with U.S.-based behemoths Google and Facebook that do not pay significant taxes in Canada, do not employ significant numbers of taxpaying Canadians, and rely on content that they are taking directly from Canadian creators. Local governments continue to rely on community papers, because they work. They connect with their constituents like nothing else. So do local MPs and MLAs. Government should remember it is paid advertising that makes our journalism and its distribution possible. Next up: copyright laws. “Fair dealing” with-

in our copyright act is a significant detriment to journalism in Canada. Our creators and publishers pay to create content that many other news aggregators, including CBC, republish, copy, broadcast and sell advertising around without compensating the creator or copyright holder. The government should also look making subscription and newsstand sales of newspapers a tax-deductible expense, and stop allowing advertising bought from foreign owned and operated media companies to be written off as a tax-deductible expense. Why should money spent with Google be tax deductible for advertisers? As publishers of community newspapers, we feel the obligation to serve. In many cases it is no longer about the money we once earned, but rather the obligation to serve the communities where we live. We do not want to abandon small towns, or any communities for that matter. However, we need government to accept some of the responsibility and obligation to ensure we can continue to serve Canadians with critically important local journalism for many, many years to come. Peter Kvarnstrom is publisher of the North Shore News and president of Glacier Media’s community newspaper group, which includes dailies and weeklies across Western Canada. He is a 50-year North Shore resident, West Vancouver Chamber of Commerce director and past chairman of the Canadian Newspaper Association.

Matthews has a debut to remember

By Bruce Penton Sports Columnist Boy, Auston Matthews sure knows how to do a debut! Not content to open his National Hockey League career with a two-goal game or even a hat trick, the No. 1 overall selection by the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2016 exploded onto the NHL scene with four goals in his first regular-season game. The 19-year-old, who played professionally in Switzerland’s best league last year under the coaching guidance of former NHL bench boss Marc Crawford (currently an associate coach with Ottawa),

entered the NHL with Connor McDavid-like acclaim, but finished his first game with the Leafs in fans’ eyes as a hybrid of Wayne Gretzky, Gordie Howe and Marlin the Magician. To the average Leafs’ fan, who has been waiting since 1967 for another Stanley Cup, Matthews’ debut was like Christmas morning and winning Lotto 649, all bundled into one magical night. Not shockingly, perhaps, the Leafs still lost their opener, 5-4 in overtime to the hometown Senators, proving that no single player can transform a bad team into a power overnight. But Matthews will try, as will McDavid, who had six points in his first two games as the Edmonton Oilers swept the Calgary Flames to open the 2016-17 season. McDavid didn’t come close to scoring four goals in his first NHL game. McDavid, in fact, told that “I think in my first

game I touched the puck four times.” It was the first fourgoal game by a player in his first game in the modern era of the NHL. Judging by the way he handled the puck and worked with fellow youngsters William Nylander and Mitch Marner, it certainly won’t be the last. That trio, along with third-year defenceman Morgan Rielly, form a strong base on which the Leafs can build a contending team. Toronto is still a light year or two away from challenging for a Stanley Cup, but for 82 games until mid-April, they’re going to be a fun team to watch. Problem is, Matthews was on a 328goal season pace after Game 1, and on a 164goal pace after he went scoreless in Toronto’s second game. and he’s going to fall far short of those numbers after 82 games have been played. But can we at least award him the Rookie-of-the-Month for October? • Headline at “49ers kneel to protest Blaine Gabbert continuing to play.” • Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times: NHL Central Division matchup of the year: Blackhawks defenceman Niklas “Hammer” Hjalmarsson vs. Blues right-winger Nail Yakupov.” • Mike Bianchi of the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel, on NBA preseason games: “As useless as a white crayon.” • Toronto fan’s sign, during the Blue Jays-Rangers playoff series: “I would rather get punched in May than knocked out in October.” • RJ Currie of, on the glut of armchair sports offerings — football, baseball, basketball, hockey — this month: “Last October my wife hid the TV remote where I couldn’t find it: under the vacuum.” • Cris Cyborg, to Fox Sports 1, taunting MMA rival Ronda Rousey: “I watched her shadowbox, and the

shadow won.” • Janice Hough of leftcoastsportsbabe. com, on Twitter: “Unlike (Buck) Showalter, (Giants manager Bruce) Bochy won’t face questions about not using star reliever. SFGiants don’t have one.” • Greg Cote of the Miami Herald: “A poll by Public Policy Polling found 62 per cent of those surveyed thought the No. 2-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes could beat the winless Cleveland Browns. An unrelated poll found that 62 per cent of people are idiots.” • Brad Dickson of the Omaha World-Herald: “Taunting penalties in the NFL are up 220 per cent. I blame bad habits picked up from watching presidential debates.” • RJ Currie again: “The Edmonton Oilers hung updates of their 20 total NHL division, conference and Cup banners at Rogers Place. Not to be outdone, the Winnipeg Jets installed new Plexiglas.” • Seth Myers of

NBC Late Night: “The Cleveland Indians yesterday completed their sweep of the Boston Red Sox and will move on in the ALCS. ‘I hate the Indians,’ said Donald Trump, who wasn’t talking about baseball.” • Janice Hough again: “Cleveland Cavaliers are champions.. Indians looking good. But God telling Browns fans – “‘Sorry, above my pay grade.’” • Steve Simmons of Postmedia: “First fib of the hockey season. ‘I’m not worried about our goaltending,” said the Leafs’ Mike Babcock, who is worried about his goaltending.” • Another one from Dwight Perry, with a football quiz: “The toughest quarterbacking job in the NFL this year is: a) Starting as a rookie in Dallas or Philadelphia; b) Staying vertical behind the Browns’ offensive line; c) Colin Kaepernick getting all his hair into his helmet.” Care to comment?

Canada at least have wolves to manage

Calvin Daniels By Calvin Daniels Agriculture Columnist It’s an old story that is again beginning to play out with a new chapter in Saskatchewan. The story is about predatory animals and farmers. The two simply have never gotten along. Predators are generally smart, at least among animals. They have to be to survive by tracking prey. And

that inherent ability has meant predators, cougars and wolves, even smaller ones such as foxes and coyotes, come rather quickly to realize domestic livestock is easy to catch, and that makes farms pretty much a corner diner for lunch. This is not new. It’s a situation which has led to many predatory species being eradicated completely from huge areas. Wolves, for example, were hunted to extinction in Britain, by sometime in the 1800s, the year is a bit fuzzy based on reported single sightings apparently. Thankfully here in Canada we never got to the point of hunting our predators to extinction, although foxes and coyotes still

harry farmyard chickens on occasion, although that is less an issue as few farmers keep a flock for their own eggs these days. Wolves however, can still pose a problem. They have always been the biggest problem in terms of wild animals and farming, or at least it seems that way. When wolves kill a calf or a ewe, the results are obvious, the loss immediate, and quite quantifiable. One suspects the loss to deer eating crops in summer and hay stored in winter actually cause a higher loss in terms of real cash value, not to mention far more deer are hit and killed on highways than wolves, and such

accidents have a cost in terms of vehicle damage too. And let’s not forget the damage from migratory waterfowl as they eat themselves fat on the farmers grain as they head south for the winter. But in Canada at least, and on the Prairies in particular, deer and geese have far better public relations going for them, as they are something we have traditionally hunted for food. Hunting is still very much a part of our culture, not the extent it was even a quarter of a century ago, but still practised by many. Those many hunters also spend considerable dollars in the pursuit and those ripple through the

economy and that is a factor in the good PR of hunt species too. So the recent announcement the Ministry of Environment is again offering a wolf hunting season for wildlife management zones along the provincial forest fringe as a method for helping to reduce wolf-livestock conflicts, hasn’t caused much of a ripple here. Such an announcement would have caused at least some uproar from groups such as the Sierra Club, because the wolf is among the more notable species to be pushed to the brink and beyond across most of North America. It is those, a near testament to wolf management here that

their population is such that they have again become a problem in some areas. “Livestock predation by wolves is an ongoing problem for producers in areas near the provincial forest,” Environment Minister, Scott Moe, said in the release regarding the hunt. “Allowing a hunting season in these areas will remove some wolves and cause others to be more wary of moving into open areas where livestock are present.” The situation is as old as man domesticating the first goat or sheep I’m sure, but at least here we still have a wolf population to find balance with, which is ultimately a good thing in my books.

Your election candidates for the RM of Humboldt It’s challenging, particularly in these wet years, for councillors to get all the work done in their Division. There is always a limited amount of revenue and time. I believe decisions on larger, more expensive projects are best reached when there is a good mix of councillors from throughout the RM. That’s why I have concerns when family members from the same division want to be on Council at the same time. I respectfully ask the ratepayers of Division 3 to vote for fair and balanced representation. Reeve:

Division 3 Councilor Leon Lueke I am Leon Lueke and, with my wife Debra, farm north of Dixon. We crop about 2000 acres and run a 90 cow calf operation. I would like to improve on the services supplied by the RM over all. I will work on bringing the issues concerning rate payer in division three and the RM to the RM council. The R.M. has seen challenges over the last few years. We need to address the issues facing the RM in a timely and cost effective manner. Having served on several organisations, like the First Westminister Boy Scouts, the Humboldt Coop, on SPI and SaskPork and nationally on the Canadian Pork Council in Ottawa, I can bring a new perspective to working on the issues facing the RM

Reg Schidlowsky I feel my previous experience as General Manager of REACT and my years on RM Council benefit the RM, especially with municipal budgeting. One of my early initiatives lobbied Council to purchase a gravel truck and loader rather than continue contracting the work out. After the first year, including repairs and depreciation, we beat our contracted gravelling cost by $50,000.

I took a greater role in the management of our family farm which now includes my brother and parents. I am interested in local politics and was encouraged by friends and neighbours to run for Reeve in the R.M. of Humboldt. Although I have limited political experience I am confident I can contribute to public office in a positive manner. I will pursue: - Representation of all ratepayers - Responsible spending of tax dollars - Stewardship of municipal assets - Honesty, fairness and integrity I humbly ask for your support on Oct. 26.

Town of Watrous election candidates

Neil McDonald I retired from the credit union system in 2001 after a 30 year career as the manager of lending. Since then I have worked as a consultant assisting Credit Union Deposit Guarantee with regulatory controls and then moving to SaskCentral assisting credit unions with the internal audit function. Each candidate has his/her own strengths. I believe I add value to our council using my finance

background. Council needs to be proactive ensuring adequate finances and controls are in place to ensure infrastructure and facilities are maintained. Having a community that is appealing to tourism is also very important with Manitou Beach being our neighbour. I have had 17 years involvement in municipal politics to date and decided to let my name stand for another term. I feel I will have more time in the future to deal with municipal and rate-payer concerns as I am winding down my professional career. I have been a resident for 28 years and feel we have a community everyone should be proud of. I’d be honored to represent our community as an alderman for the Town of Watrous. Patricia Isherwood Thomas I am running for re-election as Councillor for the Town of Watrous. I have been on council for 10 years and in that time period we have completed a number of major projects that benefit the citizens of Watrous. Some of the projects completed in the last 10 years include: a major renovation to our Civic Centre; installation of a Reverse Osmosis Water system; renovations to our Arena, two new housing sub-divisions just to name a few. All of this while still keeping our tax increases to a minimum. We continue to keep our mil rate in line with other Towns our size and we also have one the lowest water rates around.

Please vote for me on October 26, 2016 and I will continue to keep our tax increases low while still providing all of the amenities of a larger centre but without the crime.

Profiles and photos were given voluntarily by the candidates and was their responsibility. We have published all the profiles we have received before a specified deadline and are not responsible for any missing election profiles.

Playoffs near in high school football action By Christopher Lee Journal Reporter With the snow hitting the ground at the beginning of October the Saskatchewan High School Athletic Association football schedule was altered with teams looking to get back on schedule last week. 1A 6-man Conference 1 The Viscount Vikings played just a single game last week as they returned to the field for the first time since their 103 point outburst when they traveled to Hudson Bay on Oct. 14 to take on the Riders. The Vikings offense was held to their lowest point total of the season as they struggled to fire on all cylinders but was lifted up by an air tight defense that shut out the Riders en route to an easy 24-0 victory. With the win the Vikings improve to 3-2 on the season, moving themselves into a tie for third place with the Porcupine Plain Bears. The Vikings wrap up their regular season with a busy week of football action as they hosted the Lanigan Lazers on Oct. 17 before traveling to Aberdeen on Oct. 20 for their final regular season contest against the last place Crusaders. The Lazers meanwhile hosted the Crusaders on Oct. 14 at their Friday Night Lights homegame in a contest between the bottom two teams in conference one. The game was a high scoring affair as both teams set a season high in points scored but they could not manage to outscore their opponent as they two teams went back and forth in a 42-42 tie. With the tie the Lazers record sits at 1-3-1 on the season, good enough for three points, five back of the third place Vikings and Bears. The Lazers were back in action on Oct. 17 when they traveled to Viscount to take on the Vikings before

they wrapped up their regular season on the road in Porcupine Plain to take on the Bears. 2A 6-man Conference 1 The first place Wynyard Bears wrapped up their regular season with a pair of contests as they traveled to Preeceville on Oct. 6 to take on the Panthers before wrapping up their regular season on Oct. 14 when they hosted the Watrous Wildcats. The Bears enjoyed a great deal of success in both games as their offense continued rolling along scoring a combined 105 points, while allowing just 59 en route to wins of 62-26 over Preeceville and 43-32 over Watrous. With the pair of wins the Bears wrapped up a perfect 6-0 regular season giving them sole possession of first place. The Bears now enjoy some rest before they return to the field for the provincial quarterfinals against the second place finisher from conference 5, which includes Churchill, Sandy Bay, and Charlebois. The Wildcats finished the season with a 3-2 record after their Oct. 6 contest with the Watson Raiders did not happen. Despite finishing with a 3-2 record and finishing second in their conference the Wildcats also move on to the provincial playoffs. The Wildcats kick off their provincial playoffs in the quarterfinal round when they take on the first place finisher in conference five, which also includes Beauval. The Raiders meanwhile wrapped up another difficult season on Oct. 14 when they hosted the Preeceville Panthers. The game did not go well for the Raiders but they did manage to have their closest game of the season

as they dropped a 36-20 loss to the Panthers. With the loss the Raiders finished the season 0-6 and missed out on the provincial playoffs. 2A 6-man Conference 4 The Birch Hills Marauders continued their 2016 season on Oct. 13 when they returned to the field for a matchup with the Shellbrook Aardvarks in Shellbrook. The Marauders offense picked up where it left off in its last game as it piled up another 66 points en route to an easy 66-34 win over the Aardvarks. With the win the Marauders record improves to 3-1 on the season moving them into a tie with the Wakaw Warriors for second in the conference. The Marauders wrapped up their regular season on Oct. 17 when they traveled to Big River to take on the Rebels. With three teams separated by just two points the Marauders needed a win or a Warriors loss to guarantee themselves of a spot in the provincial playoffs. The Warriors meanwhile continued their season on Oct. 13 at home against the Rebels. Needing a win to keep pace for a playoff spot the Warriors offense came out flying as they scored 50 points, to absolutely dominate the Rebels 50-19. With the win the Warriors moved to 3-1 on the season and gave themselves a chance at a playoff spot with one week to go in the regular season. The Warriors wrapped up their regular season on Oct. 17 when they traveled to Rosthern to take on the league leading and undefeated Huskies. The Warriors needed a win and a Marauders loss to assure themselves a spot in the playoffs. To find out more about the playoff matchups check out next week’s East Central Trader.

Reason not to run for mayor By Becky Zimmer Journal Editor We live in a great city and I see examples of this everyday. After getting stuck in the arena parking lot on Wednesday night, I had four people waved down and very willing to help me out. It did not matter to these people that they were missing the Broncos game. They were willing to help out a stranger in need. To the future mayors of Humboldt, this is the type of mayor we need for this town, someone selfless. Besides some sense of being Humboldt-famous after acquiring the mayor title, being mayor does not mean any type of celebrity status. It is not like being mayor of Toronto or Calgary where the whole country knows your name. For people who do know your name, it is not always going to be for the best of reasons. There will be a balancing act between having a thick skin and listening to other people’s ideas. Any potential mayor cannot have one without the other in a mayoral position since they will have to be prepared to swallow their pride and say they were wrong from time to time.

For that matter, not everyone will understand the job of the mayor. With the title of mayor comes little power. The councillors and the mayors work together to pass law. The mayor will not be able to pass law without consultation. I want to know how many people think otherwise. Humboldt has had the benefit of one mayor for the last 10 years. I was not here for the learning curve that was Eaton coming into office but as he is leaving public office, the last year has been a time when he knew what he was doing. The new mayor, along with new council members coming in, will have that initial learning curve that we, as residents, will have to deal with. And that is okay. They will learn along the way what they need to do within municipal politics. They will learn along the way how much they can commit to this important job. That does not mean we should be all forgiving. As citizens, we need to hold our candidates responsible for what they say and the same goes for when they

are elected. The city got out into the community and communicated with people about what they wanted to see. The channels of communication were open and they also need to stay that way. Eaton, from what I saw as a journalist, also put Humboldt on the map when it came to provincial politics by being involved in many different government and municipal organiza-

tions. For a small city, he brought Humboldt to the forefront of discussions on infrastructure funding, storm water issues, and fighting to keep small towns vibrant and viable. Eaton dedicated a lot of time into keeping Humboldt involved. We still need someone like that to ensure that Humboldt stays with those conversations.

Dale Lung - Council It has been an opportunity for me to serve on the Watson council for one session. During this time I have worked with my fellow councilors under the professional leadership of our mayor Norma Webber. Through this time I was involved in making decisions regarding the improvements at our well site, replacing the water line into town and the start-up of the RO water system. I have also been directly involved in working with other team members to start improving our streets. Due to unforeseen problems we have had to make some uneasy decisions to use some of this money to repair an aging infrastructure. I believe that our decisions that we made were the best for Watson. I look forward to working with the other council members, moving ahead from this

point to keep Watson as a place to live and grow in. Myra Lung - Council As a counselor for Watson I have been given the opportunity to be involved in the needs of the community. Water and sewer have been a big issue these past years. Now it’s time to improve streets and back alleys. One of the great assets to Watson is McNab Regional Park. Working on council has given me the opportunity to serve as chairperson for the park. This has certainly been a challenge as we had many chances in the park that required a balance of finances. I have asked young community people to join our park board, so we can have a comprehensive growth strategy that benefits all aspects of McNab Park in the future.

Heavy rain and snow over the past several days has stalled harvest. Eighty-one per cent of the 2016 crop is combined and 15 per cent is swathed or ready to straight-cut, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s Weekly Crop Report. The five-year (20112015) average for this time of year is 93 per cent combined. The southeast has 89 per cent of the harvest in the bin. Eighty-five per cent of the crop is combined in the southwest, 79 per cent in the east-central region, 73 per cent in the west-central, 78 per cent in the northwest and 80 per cent in the northeast. The most progress was made in combining flax and soybeans. Over the past three weeks, harvest progress has been minimal due to wet conditions. Significant rain and snow were recorded throughout the province during this past week. The weather system started for most regions on October 2 and has continued on with rain, snow and overcast conditions up to the release of this report. Many areas reported that at least 25 mm of rain before 10 to 15 cm of snow started falling. The Glenavon area reported 41 mm of total precipitation, Moose Jaw and Tisdale 103 mm, Lisieux 66 mm, Blumenhof 86 mm, Yorkton 75 mm, Quill Lake 97 mm, Perdue 44 mm, Cando 91 mm, Hafford 62 mm and Pierceland 25 mm. Provincially, cropland topsoil moisture is rated as 55 per cent surplus and 45 per cent adequate. Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as 32 per cent surplus and 68 per cent adequate. Field conditions are very wet, which will make harvest slow once producers get back into the field. Even with the sunny weather that is forecast, producers do not expect to be back in the field for several days. At this time, livestock producers are indicating adequate amounts of hay, straw, greenfeed and feed grain for their winter feeding needs. Rain and snow has lodged standing crops. Bleaching and sprouting are causing grade loss. A complete, printable version of the Crop Report is available online at http:// cfm?p=82565&i=94937.

Protecting your animals during the winter By Becky Zimmer Humboldt Journal Editor

There is no way around it. Part of harsh Canadian winters is making sure we are safe from cold and snow. The same goes for animals, whether they are part of the herd or part of the family. Dr. Kim Hoshizaki with Animal Health Clinic of Humboldt says to think about what you need during winter. That is, exactly what your pets or herd need to stay healthy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tell people, you want, bare minimum, wind shelter and good bedding adequate food and water.â&#x20AC;? When looking at an animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s care, Dr. Hoshizaki goes on the five factors of animal cruelty; they require adequate shelter, food, water, medical care and some species require adequate metal stimulation. In winter, providing those needs can change compared to caring for animals in the summer. One factor of winter care that people seem to misunderstand is their animals need for adequate water. Actual liquid water is much better than snow. Animals need safe access to water, including an area that is free from ice so they do not slip. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They actually require more energy to melt the snow and utilize it as water.â&#x20AC;? With higher energy needs comes more feed intake, says Dr. Hoshizaki. The amount of feed needed during cold weather changes. During the colder months, animals need more feed to produce energy to keep them warm. For cattle, for example, for every 10 degree drop below zero, producers should be looking at a two to four pound increase in barley feed per head per day (depending on quality). Dr. Hoshizaki says that this increase


has been researched in cattle but there is no information on small animals or horses but Dr. Hoshizaki says that feed intake should amount to a minimum 5 per cent of the animals body weight. When it comes to the quality of feed, animal owners get what they pay for, she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cheaper the pet food the more filler it has in it.â&#x20AC;? Cats are strict carnivores, says Dr. Hoshizaki, dogs are not, so strict meat diets are not necessarily good for dogs. Shelter is another concern for proper animal care and for large animals, minimally, farmers could use bedding and wind breaks. However, overhead shelter would be best if clean and dry. For animals, like pigs, they can live outside and just need a lot of bedding and good overhead shelter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen people who fill an entire shed with clean, dry straw and they love it in there!â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Hoshizaki. For animals in the barn, closing the barn down in the winter keeps the heat in, says Dr. Hoshizaki, but the barns do need to be ventilated and cleaned to avoid ammonia gas, which can damage animal and human lungs. When it comes to pigs and chickens in barns, they need an external warming source, like a heat lamp. For smaller animals, they need overhead, indoor shelter, says Dr. Hoshizaki. Some injuries that Dr. Hoshizaki has seen has been heat lamp burns on dogs because the owner has put a heat lamp in a dog house that is too hot or too close to the dogs body. Depending on the coat, keeping the dog in a well insulated dog house where they are out of the wind is enough to keep them warm without additional

heating. For dogs with a thinner coat, keeping them in a barn, heated garage or shop may be enough for them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a husky, certainly those dogs can easily tolerate -20 to -25 celcius versus a rottweiler, anything below -20, even with a dog house, they should be in the garage or the shop with an external heat source.â&#x20AC;? The last two factors that need to be provided for all animals on the farm is proper medical care and mental stimulation. De-worming animals before winter is very important. Horse and cattle almost always are, dogs and cats need that treatment as well, says Dr. Hoshizaki. If there is a problem, it is considered cruel to not have the medical issue addressed, says Dr. Hoshizaki. Mental stimulation is more applicable to zoo animals but can apply to farm animals as well. For horses, Dr. Hoshizaki says, confining them in small areas for prolonged periods of time is not good for their mental health, let alone their physical health. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Horses that are confined in stalls can develop stereotypical behavior; head swinging and bar biting for example.â&#x20AC;? When it comes to what the Animal Health Clinic sees, a lot of animals come

in with exposure based injuries to the ears and tail and starvation. Many times, these are stray animals, says Dr. Hoshizaki, and feeding them is not exactly the best thing for them because all they do is keep on breeding. Communities need to concentrate on population control. Spaying and neutering is critical. With wild strays on the farm, humane euthanasia may be the only option to prevent unwanted offspring and disease as these animals cannot be vaccinated or sterilized. People seem to discount farm cats as not needing food, shelter or proper medical attention but they still need to be taken care of to be good mousers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Animals that are emaciated and starved donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t catch mice.â&#x20AC;? If people have any questions, says Dr. Hoshizaki, they should not hesitate to contact their veterinarian and ask about their animals health.

Farmers react to carbon pricing Emma Meldrum tisdale recorder reporter Farmers in northeast Saskatchewan are worried â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and some downright unhappy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; about a recent announcement by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that would see every province adopt some kind of carbon pricing scheme by 2018. On Oct. 3, Trudeau told Parliament that a cap-and-trade system or direct price would help Canada cut greenhouse gas emissions to meet the Paris Agreement, a climate deal adopted by 195 countries in Dec. 2015. Passing on the additional cost Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expected that the increased cost of fuel â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and thus the increased cost of shipping and transportation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will affect farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bottom line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unlike any other industry, in agriculture, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pass the costs along if there is an added cost to us because we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set our prices,â&#x20AC;? said Ian Boxall, a farmer north of Tisdale, councillor for the RM of Connaught and director for District 4 with the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some research Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done, carbon tax â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if they put it in place â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll cost the average Saskatchewan producer $10-12,000 a year. Which comes right out of our margin, right?â&#x20AC;? Agriculture exemptions British Columbia, which implemented a carbon tax in 2008, has exempted â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;coloured fuel purchased by a farmer that is delivered to their farm land.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association was quick to start a petition against the carbon tax for farmers and food. Robin Speer, a media spokesperson for the group, said B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agriculture is different from Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, so the effect of a carbon tax will be different. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot different when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re buying massive

amounts of fertilizer and inputs and chemicals and huge grain, oil seed, pulse operations,â&#x20AC;? Speer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a question of these ripple effects on taxing everything through that agriculture supply chain, and obviously itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inevitable that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to hit farmers right up to the grocery store and the kitchen table.â&#x20AC;? Previous improvements Nicolas Ferre, a farmer in Zenon Park, noted that farmers have already taken significant steps in reducing their environmental impact. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m all for doing a better job for protecting the environment,â&#x20AC;? Ferre said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to do our best to conserve and be good stewards of the land. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already done lots of things to be more efficient and burn less diesel and apply the exact amount of fertilizer that we need.â&#x20AC;? Reducing carbon Speer said farmers are already contributing to reducing carbon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sinking carbon in the crops that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re

A K Enns Trucking

growing, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re higher-yielding crops every year, [they have] new cleaner burning engines, modern crop protection products,â&#x20AC;? Speer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What farmers are doing is a really good news story in sinking carbon, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re saying that if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to tax inputs and costs on the front end, farmers canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be sort of perversely punished for in fact achieving that desired outcome of government.â&#x20AC;? Boxall agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Saskatchewan Soil Conservation Association has done lots of research on zero-till and we sequester about eight million additional tonnes of carbon in our soil every year, farmers do. So by 2022, that would be worth $400 million at 50 bucks a tonne. So thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s equal to all the emissions from Saskatchewan agriculture,â&#x20AC;? Boxall said. Provincial response B.C., QuĂŠbec, Ontario and Nova Scotia have already implemented or will soon implement a carbon pricing system: either a direct tax or capand-trade. Premier Brad Wall immediately voiced opposition to the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carbon pricing plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reality is jobs will be lost in oil, mining and agriculture as these industries are hit hard for tax cuts elsewhere,â&#x20AC;? Wall wrote in a statement on social media Oct. 5. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nearly half of Saskatchewan businesses surveyed said they would freeze or cut salaries and delay investment due to the carbon tax.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If neither price nor cap-and-trade is in place by 2018, the government of Canada will implement a price in that jurisdiction,â&#x20AC;? Trudeau told Parliament on Oct. 3.

Harvest hit hard by recent storms By Christopher Lee Humboldt Journal Reporter The weather has not been kind to crop producers this year and the winter storm that rolled through in the first week of October punctuated matters. “It’s not anything needed at this time of year definitely with all the rain and now the snow on top of it,” said Daphne Cruise, Crop Management Specialist, with the Government of Saskatchewan. With the snow still here, Cruise says the next line of action is to hope that the snow melts and the fields dry out enough to send the combines in to complete the harvest, which Cruise says will be at least another ten days to two weeks. “And that’s if we get those two weeks of good weather without any kind of rain fall event before our producers are able to make any kind of significant progress in the field so this kind of a weather system has definitely set things back.” While it is highly unusual to harvest late in the year, Cruise says it has been done before, as recently as 2009, when approximately 20 per cent of the crop came in, in November. “But of course it came in tough and damp and so a lot of that crop then got managed in the bin yard with aeration and grain drying.” A number of options have been discussed to harvest the remainder of the crop, should the weather not improve, says Cruise. “We have talked about in the past waiting for the ground to freeze before heading out there but time will tell if that will happen in time enough before there’s more snow and if that’s the case, there could be possibly some crop that’s

left out over winter if we can’t get back out there.” Cruise notes that if harvest is forced to be pushed back to next year, it will push all of the preparations for next year’s harvest back as well because they will be harvesting the crop instead of focusing on weed control and seeding. “Our seeding dates could be extended further on into May and June and that could potentially just cause repercussions down the line. Of course, everybody knows the weather turns pretty significantly in some cases and it could all work out even if we had a later seeding date next year… but something producers have dealt with in the past and obviously don’t want to but it has been done in the past so nothing new it’s just not preferable most definitely.” Should that happen Cruise says that the producers are going to see yield losses. There are a number of things that can contribute to yield loss, says Cruise, including shattering of the pods and heads on crop that is still standing, but Cruise says quantifying how much loss can be expected is not an easy proposition. “It all depends on how long it sits out there and if it happens to sit out over winter there’ll obviously be more. And then on top of it too some producers are worrying about waterfowl moving into the field.” The biggest problem with the weather besides not being able to harvest the crop is the moisture, says Cruise, who notes that the moisture has caused significant downgrading due to bleaching, staining and sprouting. Downgrading in the seed causes a number of problems, says Cruise, with

To our agriculture producers of our province, you are greatly appreciated by the people of Saskatchewan! Thank You!!!

sprouting causing “issues with the whole seed chemistry process.” “When it comes to things like barley for instance you don’t want sprouted grain because that interferes with the whole malting process and even the feed, the seed basically starts growing again so you get some kind of decreased quality factors with just a seed that’s just essentially trying to grow from a seed again.” Bleaching and staining also cause issues with the seed including the discolouration of the flower. Frost can also play a role in the downgrading of the crop, says Cruise, who notes that if the crop was mature and got hit with frost it could shrink the kernels and cause them to become light. “Definitely not something we want to see this time of year but I’m confident that if our producers can get out there and if the field conditions allow them to they will do whatever they can to push the crop and get it in to the bin.” Disease is also something the producers have had to worry about this year, which will affect the milling quality as well as mold and mildew, which does not affect the milling quality, says Cruise. “It’s more of an appearance thing but typically it’s not usually an issue when it comes to the actual quality but like I said if we did get some sort of kernel shrinkage of course that causes light kernels and some off colouring and some off sizes so that all goes into the grading factor as well.” With this year being so difficult for producers the Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation has announced that producers may apply for an extension of insurance, which will extend the coverage for yield and quality losses past Nov 15. “The harvest has been a real challenge for Saskatchewan producers. Many areas still have crop left out, there’s 20 per cent of the harvest still remaining so that’s

about seven million acres… if producers are unable to finish their harvest we cover for any losses over the winter,” said SCIC President and CEO Shawn Jaques. If a farmer applies for the extension then their final adjustment would occur upon completion of their harvest, no later than June 10, 2017. Jaques said it was important for the SCIC to provide the extension of insurance to producers so that they could be covered over the winter, since so much of the crop is still stuck out there right now. “So let’s say the crop was in pretty good condition in the fall and because of the winter conditions and how things turn out in the spring if the producer losses a lot of that crop due to over wintering they are covered for those losses.” For producers looking to apply for the extension of insurance, the deadline is Nov. 15. “If a producer can’t finish harvest they would call us by Nov. 15 to register the extension of insurance and then next spring when they are able to either, harvest that crop or do something with it, maybe burn it or graze it or whatever the case may be we would finalize the claim next spring and then pay for any losses that happen over the winter.” Jaques says one of the most important things for producers to know is that every situation is different and while he hopes producers are able to complete their harvest this year he understands it might not be possible. “There are probably some people that will have crops stay out over winter and so I would encourage producers who have questions either about extensions or how quality coverage works to call one of our local crop insurance offices and we have staff available that can help them with their questions.”

Harvest’s unwelcome visitor Emma Meldrum tisdale recorder reporter “Every day it snows, it gets a little harder to look out the window,” Landen Larson said on Oct. 7, in the midst of some unusual mid-harvest weather. Starting Oct. 4, the Northeast was hit with a series of snowy days that stalled harvest operations and left farmers watching the forecast anxiously. Larson, who farms in the Aylsham area, had harvested two-thirds of his crops before the wintery weather hit. Now, canola, faba beans and some barley are left waiting for drier days. “The hardest part about the snow is, it’s no different than getting rain,” he said. “You need the snow to melt and if it’s canola, you need the swaths to dry and the seed to get dry. You know, it’s been so wet in our areas, we’re going to be fighting the ground to dry up as well.” Larson was mildly optimistic that fields would dry up before the snow settled in for the winter. “Mother Nature usually gives us enough days to get the crop off. We haven’t gotten that many yet this year. I’m thinking she might still have something in store for us yet.” Nicolas Ferre, a councillor for the RM of Connaught who farms in Zenon Park, predicted that the weather would slowly turn in farmers’ favour.

Review Photo/Emma Meldrum Four combines wait in a snowy field for harvest to resume. Freezing temperatures and inches of snowfall at the beginning of October led to a halt of harvest operations. “It’s hard to stay optimistic, but looking at the forecast, it should turn around,” he said on Oct. 7. “It’ll be about a week, ten days, before we’re back in the fields, I think.” Ferre had only swathed canola left in the fields when the snow started to fall. “We combined about two days straight to get off as much as we could before,” he said. “We saw the forecast, so we were pushing to take off all our cereals before,

because we knew that would be the worst affected.” Ian Boxall is a councillor in the RM of Connaught and director for District 4 with the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan. He also farms north of Tisdale. “My dad’s birthday was yesterday,” he said on Oct. 7. “He’s 74 [and only] once has snow fallen and stayed in October – where they haven’t got the crop off. In 74 years – that’s a good sign.” Boxall had 1,900 acres of faba beans, canary seed and canola left at the time of the interview. He said he’s combined in December – “it’s not ideal, but we have done it” – but he’s hoping that sunshine and high single-digit weather will avert winter harvesting. “The fields are going to be wet, no matter what,” he said. “But hopefully it dries up enough that we can get the equipment out there and get the crop off.” The worst-case scenario What happens if the temperature doesn’t rise, the snow doesn’t melt and the fields don’t dry? “It stays out there until the spring,” said Larson. “A lot of the stuff doesn’t survive the winter very well. I know some processors, they’re sometimes a little reluctant to buy spring thresh canola.” Ferre hoped for fields to dry just enough to drive over. “We’ve got a dryer, so as long as it’ll go through the combine and come out, we’ll take it off.”

Harvest hit hard by recent storms continued from page 4 As of Oct. 10, only 80 per cent of the crop had been harvested, with 15 per cent swathed or ready to be straight cut, which is down significantly from the five year average from 2011-2015, which sat at 93 per cent, which was caused by rain which was relatively consistent starting in June, says Cruise. “We would get a good four or five day run and then have a rain event… and then we’d be shut down for three or four days and then you go again. Where typically in most normal years… you get a good two or three week run of fairly good harvest conditions that you can get the majority of the crop in the bin. And usually October cooperates… but this year definitely the first two weeks in October haven’t cooperated for our producers which is very unfortunate,” says Cruise.

There are two examples of coverage provided in the press release on the SCIC website. Example #1 (below coverage) The producer seeded 1,000 acres of lentils with a Crop Insurance guarantee of 20,000 bushels. The producer is able to harvest 500 acres and the yield is 10 bushels per acre, making the current production at 5,000 bushels. Crop Insurance will appraise the remaining unharvested 500 acres. The appraisal is five bushels per acre for an additional production of 2,500 bushels. Crop Insurance would provide compensation for the difference between the 20,000 bushel guarantee and the current harvested and appraised production. In this example the payment would be made for 12,500 bushels of lentils. Example #2 (above coverage)

The producer seeded 1,000 acres of lentils with a Crop Insurance guarantee of 20,000 bushels. The producer is able to harvest 500 acres and the yield is 25 bushels per acre making the current production at 12,500 bushels. Crop Insurance will appraise the remaining unharvested 500 acres. The appraisal is 20 bushels per acre for an additional production of 10,000 bushels. Crop Insurance would not provide a claim payment right now as the harvested and appraised production is above the producer’s guarantee; however, the claim would not be settled until the producer completes harvest. If further losses occur to the crop bringing the actual production below the guarantee a payment would be generated. extension-of-insurance/

Bare fields make for increases in soil erosion

Star City farmer tests new varieties of soybean Devan C. Tasa tisdale recorder editor Along Highway 3, at the turnoff towards Star City, a sign declared the northwest corner as a NorthStar Genetics demonstration site. The 20-acre site, owned by Shawn Mooney, tested out five new varieties of soybeans: NSC Leroy, NSC Watson, NSC Moosomin, NSC Reston and NSC Tilston. “We like to name them after towns where we think they’ll grow well,” said Sheila Heide, a district sales manager for NorthStar Genetics. “Leroy and Watson are closer to Tisdale and further north and both of those varieties, especially the Watson, did very well in the trial.” In the spring, Mooney talked to Hans van Burck, a seed grower that sells NorthStar Genetics seed, about growing soybean. This was the first year Mooney has grown the crop. Events progressed in such a way that Mooney was soon talking to NorthStar Genetics. “I actually offered a site if they wanted to do some trials along the highway and they accepted,” he said. NorthStar Genetics provided the seed and signage, while Mooney did the seeding, cultivating, harvesting and everything else. Mooney also planted some Moosomin off of the demonstration site. The farmer was pleased with the test varieties. “I was ecstatic with it, honestly,” he said. “It exceeded my wildest dreams.”

Heide said the yields were between 53 and 63.6 bushels an acre. “Those are exceptional yields,” she said. “With the price of soybeans now and those yields, it’s starting to look very profitable for growers of soybeans.” One thing Mooney said he had to do was to have the combine header close to the ground to gather all of the soybean. Mooney said he was pleased with three varieties. The Leroy matured the earliest, the Watson matured a week or so later and had the highest yields and the Moosomin were good, but matured later than the Leroy and had a smaller yield than the Watson. The famer said he was planning to use some of the varieties next year. “I’m going to have a field of Leroy and a field of Watson,” he said. “We’ll see how it goes; I may have a field of Moosomin, too. I’m still early in the planning stage.” Heide said all of the varieties are available for growers to purchase for 2017. “Leroy is brand new for 2017, Watson was new for 2016,” she said. “Those are the two varieties I would prefer to see grown in that area.” With the new varieties of soybeans, farmers in more northern latitudes like the Northeast have more options, Heide said. “It’s an another alternative crop for growers to grow because the more crops you can get in a rotation, the better it is in the long run for the soil health and all of the crops involved.”

By Becky Zimmer Humboldt Journal Editor With Saskatchewan winters come wind. Leaving fields bare does not help reduce the destruction those winds can cause. Angela Bedard-Haughn, Associate Professor in the Department of Soil Science at the University of Saskatchewan says leaving fields bare is the biggest cause of soil erosion as stubble, vegetation, and snow cover keep the soil protected from high winds. “If you don’t have enough snow cover or if you don’t have any type of vegetation cover, then the wind, which is inevitable will take it and blow it all over the place.” Dirty snow is a striking visual representation of winter soil erosion, says Bedard-Haughn. To stop erosion, the best thing to do is leave some sort of stubble or chaff on the field after taking down the crop. Proper tilling can also reduce the risk of losing valuable top soil in the winter winds. “Ideally they’re doing conservation tillage or zero till and leaving some stubble there. With all the extra moisture there is less of that in the Humboldt area that’s been a big issue. I know folks are a little more reluctant to do that.” Relying on snow cover does not always do the trick with some winters producing little to no snow coverage. If that is not possible, snow fences

keep snow cover on the field as well as reducing the amount soil blown off the field. Shelter belts is something that Bedard-Haughn says people are doing less of than before but they also keep soil on the field, even if it is blown from one side to the other, says Bedard-Haughn. “There is some known carbon benefits to keeping shelter belts in the fields,” says Bedard-Haughn. Come spring, producers will also have to deal with winter run off and the soil erosion that it can cause. Bedard-Haughn says the principle is the same, slowing down the water can help slow down how much it takes with it and also allows more time for it to be soaked up by the ground. “So whether that is some sort of landscaping; cross slope type of tillage or some sort of berms, like if you have an area that you know is prone to that.” Having tillage that cuts across the slope will slow the speed of the water as it runs down the slope, which will take away that erosive power. Again, having leftover vegetation in the field will keep water from running too quickly across the field, especially in highly proned areas. Some producers are putting this into practice in high drainage areas themselves. “One of the things they’ll do in drainage ditches to mitigate erosion within those ditches is having standing vegetative ditches.”

Earning public trust important for producers Devan C. Tasa tisdale editor recorder

Producers need to gain the trust of the public or risk losing the ability to use certain practices and technologies on the farm. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Shelley Jones with the Government of Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ag Awareness Unit said producers need to earn social licence to operate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the public trusts us, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when they grant us a social licence,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a piece of paper; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their licence to allow us to continue to do what we do, allow us to operate, allow us to make decisions that impact our personal farming and ranching operations.â&#x20AC;? The agriculture ministry defines social licence as the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acceptance of modern food production. In this case, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;modernâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; means using up-to-date techniques and technology. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t focus on one type like organic farming. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to ensure that producers ensure that the public trusts what we do in agriculture and how we do it,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trust in what we do and how we do it, then we could be denied access to some of those tools and

technologies and practices that we use and employ as producers.â&#x20AC;? An example of where social licence is important is genetically modified organisms. Some producers rely on GMO crops like canola to earn a living. If the public doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grant social licence to that technology, they could pressure the government to further regulate or ban the crops. Earning a social licence means having conversations about such technologies to allay fears the public has about them, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because of bad communication from those that create the technology or because of misrepresentation by groups that oppose them, Jones said. It means inviting questions from the public about what producers do and why they do it, and answering them honestly. Jones suggested that when approaching such discussions, the conversation should focus less on the technical science and more about how farming practices help achieve shared values like sustainability, affordability and producing safe, nutritious food to eat. Producers should examine their practices through a social licence lens, trying to understand what a con-

sumer who knows nothing about the industry would think about farming practices if they saw it from the window of their car. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have good support from the public in our industry, but there are always threats. The threats and risks are real,â&#x20AC;? Jones said, adding that social licence has been lost in some jurisdictions that are further removed from agriculture than Saskatchewan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes one hidden video from a barn demonstrating abuse of an animal. One video is very impactful these days,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has far and rapid reach, and if the public begins to interpret those isolated incidents as the norm, then they will demand more pressure of regulators and legislators to tighten up the rules, to have us comply with more regulations, to have us audited, those types of things.â&#x20AC;? Jones said the industry is rigorously regulated based on sound science. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want our industry to change based on the perception of what is the right way to do something, we want to operate knowing we are doing the right thing based on research that comes from scientists and specialists that understand our industry better than anyone else does.â&#x20AC;?

With the flick of three wrists, agriculture month was declared in the Northeast. Ian Allan, the RM of Tisdaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reeve; Francis Chabot, the RM of Connaughtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reeve; and Al Jellicoe, Tisdaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mayor, each signed declarations at a ceremony held at the RM of Tisdaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office Oct. 13. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully this proclamation will help raise awareness of the importance of agriculture locally and in our province,â&#x20AC;? said Alicia Sopatyk, the livestock specialist at the Ministry of Agricultureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tisdale regional office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot to be proud of in Saskatchewan.

Home for Harvest: Tluchak brothers reunited Emma Meldrum

The Tluchak brothers were reunited for harvest this fall. From left, Bob (Bakersfield, Calif.), Tim (Beaumont, Alta.), Marty (Gronlid), Murray (Lloydminster, Alta.) and Dennis (Gronlid) worked together during harvest for the first time in years.

This year â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s harvest was extra special for one Gronlid family. All five Tluchak brothers were home for harvest for the first time since they were kids. Dennis and Marty, who farm in the Northeast, welcomed home Bob from Bakersfield, Calif., Tim from Beaumont, Alta., and Murray from Lloydminster, Alta. The brief return to the farm was a little bittersweet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All three of the non-farming brothers are working in the oil fields, but because of the downturn, there really wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any work, so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been off,â&#x20AC;? said Marty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just so happens that it always seems weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re short of labour, and they were available,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been fantastic. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even realize how intelligent they were in different areas like mechanical and electrical, things like that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a huge bonus to have them here in the yard.â&#x20AC;? The brothers and their staff worked hard, but took time to enjoy the reunion as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a lot more fun than I would have ever thought,â&#x20AC;? said Marty. He noted that four out of five brothers were able to enjoy


Thanksgiving together as well. With cooler weather and snow slowing down harvest activities, the Tluchaks are focusing on drying grain. Tim, who works as an engineer, has left Gronlid. Murray and Bob remain, with Bob returning to California at the end of the month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got on, on a job thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be doing ten wells, so heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking forward to that, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a long time since anythingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happened down there.â&#x20AC;? With 2,900 acres left in the field, there is still plenty of work to do. Marty expects to be drying grain for most of the winter. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unlikely that all five brothers will be reunited again for a future harvest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love it. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably ever going to happen, you never know,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something they enjoy, so if they could be here, they would be here.â&#x20AC;? In the meantime, Dennis and Martyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular staff will see them through. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people that we have working for us are high-end and we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it without them,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get along really well together and try to have a little bit of fun even when times get a little tough.â&#x20AC;?

Lake Lenore makes it six straight at districts and five straight at provincials By Christopher Lee Journal Reporter After an early October snow-storm hit the area and forced the Horizon Central Athletic Association District Cross-Country Championship to be postponed, the meet finally took place on Oct. 11 in snowy, cold conditions at Rowanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ravine in Strasbourg. The Lake Lenore Lancers continued their excellent run of success in cross-country during the meet as they followed up their pre-district team victory with a district team victory for the sixth straight year, edging out Strasbourg by two points, and Middle Lake and Muenster by five points. The team competition sees the top five finishers from each school receive the same number of points as their finishing position, with the team with the fewest points being the winner. The Lancers captured the team competition thanks to a pair of first place finishes, in the midget boys and midgets girls races and a trio of second place finishes in the junior boys, senior boys and senior girls races. In total 15 Lancers runners moved on to provincials this year. With only runners who compete in midget, junior and senior races being eligible to compete at provincials the Lancers qualified two midget girls, two midget boys, two junior girls, two junior boys, three senior girls and four senior boys. Overall the Lancers sent 23 runners to the district championship with two finishing first, six finishing in the top three and 17 finishing in the top ten. The Middle Lake Avengers enjoyed a solid cross-country meet of their own as they finished in a tie for third place with the Muenster Cougars. The Avengers finished with 13 points after finishes of first, in peewee girls, second in midget girls, third in peewee and wee pee girls and fourth in bantam girls, midget girls, and junior boys, with only one of the fourth place finishes counting towards their point total. In total nine Avengers runners qualified to compete at the provincial championship, including three in midget girls, four in junior girls, one in junior boys and one in senior girls. The Avengers sent a total of 17 runners to the district championship finishing with one first, four top threeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and 13 top ten finishes. The Cougars meanwhile finished with 13 points of their own thanks to second place finishes in peewee girls, bantam girls and midget boys, a third place finish in bantam boys and a fourth place finish in peewee boys. After a successful district championship, five Cougars runners finished in the top ten of their individual races and as such moved

on the provincial championship including two midget girls runners, one midget boys runner, one junior boys runner and one senior girls runner. In total the Cougars sent 15 runners to the district championships finishing with four top threeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and 13 top tenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Among other schools from around the area Wynyard Composite qualified eight runners for the provincial championships including one senior girl, two senior boys, two junior boys, and three midget boys, Annaheim qualified three runners with two in senior girls and one in midget girls, Watrous High qualified four runners with one each in senior girls, junior boys, junior girls and midget boys. Rounding out the field of local talent heading to the provincial cross-country meet are two runners from St. Brieux (senior boys and midget boys), two from Englefeld (junior boys and junior girls) and one from Bruno (junior boys). The qualifying runners had little time to rest before the provincial championship as they traveled to Delisle on Oct. 15. The Lancers captured their fifth consecutive 1A Team Provincial Championship Gold Medal and their sixth consecutive provincial team medal as they finished with 42 points, 32 clear of second place. The provincial championship team competition works a little differently from the district team competition as the top four runners from each team instead of the top five runners count towards the team points race. The Lancers finished as the top team thanks to four top 20 finishes as they finished with a bronze medal in the midget girls race, fifth in the midget boys race, sixteenth in the junior boys race and eighteenth in the senior boys race. The Lancers sent 15 runners to the provincial championship with two placing in the top five, six in the top 20 and ten in the top 30. Just missing the podium after back-to-back provincial medals were the Avengers who finished fourth with 107 points, 15 points behind the bronze medalists. The Avengers did not finish with any top ten runners but enjoyed a number of very consistent results as they finished 19 and 29 in the midget girls race and 29 and 30 in the junior girls race. In total the Avengers sent nine runners to the provincial championship with one finishing in the top 20, four finishing in the top 30 and seven finishing in the top 40. Finishing just behind the Avengers were the Wynyard Bears, who finished fifth, eight points

behind the Avengers one year after capturing the 2A Provincial Championship. The Bears finished without a top 20 runners but still managed a number of consistent results as they finished 24 and 35 in the midget boys race and 27 and 29 in the junior boys race. Overall the Bears sent eight runners to the provincial championship and finished with three top 30â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, four top 40â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and six top 50â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Further down the overall standings were the Cougars who finished in ninth place with 151 points. The Cougars saw some up and down results at the provincial championship, which contributed to their high point total as they managed a top 20 finish in the midget boys race (16), but fell to 41 in senior girls, 43 in junior boys and 51 in midget girls. Overall the Cougars sent five runners to the meet finishing with a top 20, three top 50â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and five top 60â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Finishing a few spots behind the Cougars were the Watrous Wildcats who finished in a tie for eleventh with 180 points. With only four runners at provincials each of the four runners for the Wildcats counted towards their point total as they finished 13th in the senior girls race, 42nd in the junior girls race, 57th in the junior boys race and 68th in the midget boys race. Among other notable finishes the Bruno Bears captured a silver medal in the junior boys race and the Annaheim Rebels collected a tenth place finish in the senior girls race. Thanks to a number of spectacular results from runners from all schools, Horizon Central finished in the top four in each of the six categories in the district competition including second in the midget boys, third in the junior boys, senior boys and senior girls and fourth in the midget girls and junior girls.

I never knew how much Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d grieve When it was time for you to leave Or just how much my heart would ache From that one fragment you would take. God lets this tender hole remain Reminding me weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll meet again And one day all the pain will cease When He restores this missing piece. For Jesus heals each tiny part That holds your memory in my heart. This tearful heart reminds me of When Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll unite us in His love.

They lived on the farm in the LeRoy district until retiring to the town of LeRoy in 1971.

In the winter she had hobbies such as crocheting, drawing and cutting out/painting lawn ornaments. She enjoyed bus tours to various casinos and playing bingo. Spending time with her friends at the LeRoy Senior Center bowling, playing bingo or having a good competitive game of cards was always entertaining and much fun. Linda lived in her own home until a year ago. At which time it was necessary for her to take up residence at St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Villa Humboldt where she passed away at the age of 93.

KRENTZ: Terry June 4, 1966 - Oct 6, 2016 It is with very broken hearts that the family announce the sudden and unexpected death of Mr. Terry Krentz 50 years, of Bruno on Thursday, October 6, 2016 near Bruno. Terry was born on June 4, 1966 in Humboldt the youngest of four sons to Dennis and Rosalie (nee-Turner) Krentz. Growing up in the area, Terry went to school in Bruno, SK. As a young and adventurous man, he enjoyed riding his snow mobile, dirt bike and racing his Trans Am car down the streets of Bruno and Humboldt. Terry was always modifying his toys to get the highest performance, which sparked his gifted ability with mechanics. Following school Terry began working with his dad doing carpentry. Shortly after, Terry began doing long haul trucking, a job that brought him much satisfaction. He enjoyed travelling across the country and seeing the beauty in many of our provinces. Along the way Terry met many great people and gained many lifelong friendships. When not on the road, Terry would always find a project from painting to flooring or a total make-over. Terry was always ready and willing to help anyone out from an oil change to some advice. Terry was a fun loving person who enjoyed visiting and loved to have a good laugh. He kept everyone on their toes with his jokes and pranks. Music gave him a sweet smile, especially a collection of the 80’s genre and Merle Haggard to name a few of his favourites. Terry also was at master chef at the grill on a beautiful day cooking up tasty dishes to share with his family and friends. He also learnt that he had to have the brand of “Kraft” for his speciality dish. Terry worked hard at keeping their yard looking like a park and was very meticulous in having it perfectly manicured. He was very proud of his beautiful waterfall that he constructed to complete the beauty of his yard. Terry also enjoyed caring for his house plants; he definitely had a green thumb and was able to have beautiful plants accenting their home. He also had two special fur buddies Bella and Maddie that he took very good care of and treated them like royalty. Family was always number one, he loved, his parents, siblings and especially his children very, very much and would do anything for them. Four years ago Terry was ecstatic with happiness when his life became complete after he met and married the love of his life Heather Sudderdean on April 21, 2012. Unfortunately this reunion was shortened due to his passing and he will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by: his wife Heather Krentz; his three children Kyle Krentz (Becki Karasiuk) and her daughter Addison, Taylor Krentz and Samantha Krentz; his step children Christopher Hilker (Danielle Maier) and Shannon Hilker (Mitch Strutt); his three brothers and their families: Doug (Denise) Krentz and daughters Kimberly (Derrick) Ottenbreit and their children Hannah and Courtney and Kendel (Steven) Bodnarchuk and children Cassidy and Emily; Jim (Claude Paradis) Krentz; and Dennis (Danita) Krentz Jr.; father-in-law Paul Sudderdean; brothers-in-law: Tracy (Cathy) Sudderdean and family Candis (Wade) Keough and son Parker, Ashley (Neil) Sudderdean-Keough and children Camryn and Gabrielle; and Nigel (Annette) Sudderdean and family Kendra (Steven) Clements and Jenna (Mitch) Ellsworth. Terry was predeceased by his maternal grandparents Frederick (Sophie) Turner; paternal grandparents Peter (Catherine) Krentz; parents Dennis (June 20, 2015) and Rosalie (April 17, 1999) Krentz and mother-in-law Wendy Sudderdean (Sept 9, 2015); and by many good friends. A Celebration of Life was held on Tuesday, October 11, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. from Malinoski & Danyluik Funeral Home Humboldt led by Fran Gasmo-Bremner. Memorial donations in Terry’s memory may be directed to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Saskatchewan or Humboldt & District SPCA. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to MALINOSKI & DANYLUIK FUNERAL HOME Humboldt, SK.

WINKEL: Frank June 16, 1942 - Oct 6, 2016 It is with broken hearts that the family of Frank Winkel of Middle Lake, SK, announces his passing on Thursday, October 6, 2016, at his residence surrounded by family. He was 74 years of age. Frank was born on Tuesday, June 16, 1942, to Leo and Catherine (nee Ilg) Winkel at Bruno, SK. He was raised on the Winkel homestead near Pilger. Frank grew up through hard times and learned the value of hard work, determination and integrity early in his life. He graduated from high school in 1960 and moved off the farm into Saskatoon to further his education. That is where he met the love of his life, Carol Milner. They were married on August 15, 1964, at St. Francis R.C. Church in Saskatoon, and began their life together in Humboldt. Frank started his teaching career in Muenster, and in 1967 they moved to Middle Lake where he continued his teaching career until he retired in 1995. They were blessed with 2 daughters: Tammy on July 4, 1967 and Pamela on March 17, 1970. While living in Middle Lake, Frank enjoyed being an active member of the community. He taught the Hunting and Firearm Safety course, was president of the Middle Lake Rec Board and president and secretary of the Middle Lake Curling Club. He was also the secretary for the Lucien Lake Fish and Game League, and a Church board member of the Canadian Martyrs Roman Catholic Church. Frank loved sports and spent many enjoyable hours with the local fastball team, either as a player or coach. After his retirement from teaching, he tutored many adult students who asked for his help in completing their grade 12. Frank was an outdoor enthusiast and appreciated the beauty and peacefulness of nature. He loved farming the homestead with his brothers until 2012. Some of his favorite moments included spending time with friends and family, as well as hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, playing cards, curling, bowling, reading, and writing. He was an amazing husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. Frank will be lovingly remembered by his two children: Tammy Winkel and Pamela Winkel (Heath Beaudry); three grandchildren: Brian (Shelene) Hoffman, Chris Hoffman, and Rebecca Kupchinski; five great-grandchildren: Dakota Hoffman, Savannah Hoffman, Ryder Hoffman, Eric Hoffman, Leo Hoffman, and baby Hoffman (on the way); one sister and two brothers: Madeline Schmitz, James (Mary Ellen) Winkel and Leon (Lois) Winkel; good friend, Eileen Kaun; and by numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his wife, Carol (nee Milner) Winkel (May 10, 2015); great-granddaughter, Cheyenne Hoffman; parents, Leo and Catherine (nee Ilg) Winkel; brotherin-law, Bernard Schmitz; and sister-in-law, Bernadine Winkel. The Funeral Mass was offered at Canadian Martyrs R.C. Church, Middle Lake, on Tuesday, October 11, 2016, at 10:30 a.m., celebrated by Fr. Colin Roy. Others taking part were: Ryder and Eric Hoffman, crossbearers; Madeline Schmitz and Tanya Malinoski, scripture readers; Cathy Jurgens and Adrienne Potter, intentions; Shelene Hoffman and Heath Beaudry, giftbearers; James Winkel, eulogist; Savannah Hoffman, memorial table attendant.

HETZEL: Martin Joseph July 28, 1935 - Oct 10, 2016 The death of Martin Hetzel of Humboldt SK occurred at Humboldt District Hospital on Monday, October 10, 2016. He was 81 years of age. Martin was born to Rupert and Katherina (nee Wockerbauer) Hetzel on July 28, 1935 at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Humboldt SK. He was the youngest of three children. He grew up on the family farm four miles west of Lake Lenore and attended Bright Valley School, after which he started farming with his Dad. Farming was his life, he loved it and always had a dog at his side. He met and married Carol Pfeiffer on October 15, 1957. Together they raised four children, eventually taking over the mixed farming operation, working first with his Dad and eventually his brother-in-law and then his son. Martin was always interested in mechanics and repaired his own machinery. He restored three antique tractors, scowering the countryside for the “right parts”. They are now on display at the Humboldt Antique Club. He restored an old 1929 “Model A” Ford Car with a rumble seat and drove it around the country and later sold it. From young on Martin enjoyed hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, curling, bowling, softball and “slow pitch”. He enjoyed watching hockey and all his grandchildren’s sports. Martin and Carol loved travelling, going on trips to B.C., Hawaii, Mexico, and many parts of the U.S.A. In 1989 they moved to Humboldt, but spring and fall found him back on the farm to help his son and in later years just to ride a few rounds on the combine. Martin and Carol became “hostesses” on Reggie’s Bus Tours, meeting many people, a lot of them becoming very good friends. In October of 2015 he made his final move with Carol to a condo at Gabriela Estates where he made many more friends. Martin will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 59 years, Carol (nee Pfeiffer) Hetzel and their four children, eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren: Laurel (Rod) MacLeod of Sherwood Park, AB and family Amanda (Sheldon) Perris and Rebecca MacLeod; Eric (Corie) Hetzel of Lake Lenore, SK and family Chanda Hetzel (Jason Williams) and Cameron Hetzel; Sandra (John) Vercammen of Saskatoon, SK and family Natalie (Pat) Guigon and their children Kira and Orin, Patrick (Natasha) Vercammen and their daughter Violet; Kathleen (Robert) Bunko of Humboldt, SK and their family Matthew (Meagan) Bunko and their daughters Jazlynn and Paisley, and Megan (Nathan) Hollingshead and their children Stayden and Bay; one sister Mary Kolbeck of Middle Lake, SK and numerous relatives of the Hetzel and Pfeiffer families. Martin was predeceased by his parents Rupert and Katherina (nee Wockerbauer) Hetzel; his sister Rose Weiland; brothers-in-law Louis Kolbeck and George Weiland. The Funeral Mass for Martin was offered at St. Augustine Roman Catholic Church in Humboldt, SK on Thursday, October 13, 2016 at 10:30 a.m. celebrated by Fr. Greg Smith-Windsor. Others taking part were: Patrick Vercammen, crossbearer; Corie Hetzel and Rod MacLeod, scripture readers; Natalie Guigon and Chanda Hetzel, intentions; Megan Hollingshead, Cameron Hetzel and Rebecca MacLeod, giftbearers; Barb Heidt and Myrna Lung, memorial table attendants. Music ministry was provided by Loretta Schugmann as director with organist Marie Aubin and members of the St. Augustine Parish Choir. An honour guard was formed by members of the Lake Lenore Knights of Columbus. Honorary pallbearers were “All those who shared in Martin’s life”. Urnbearer was Matthew Bunko. Interment followed at St. Augustine Roman Catholic Cemetery Humboldt, SK. Memorial donations may be directed to the Humboldt and District SPCA.

The Oct. 14 game in Wynyard may have been the Golden Bears versus the Watrous Wildcats but the winner was the Wynyard and District Food Bank. Food came from everywhere to support the third Sofina Tackle Hunger drive and second annual Friday Night Lights football game against the Watrous Wildcats on Oct. 14 with students from both teams canvassing their classmates for tackle hunger support, says coach, Morris Sokul. This included students like Michael Shewchuk and Alexei Bashutsky (pictured) of the Golden Bears. Sofina Foods employees volunteered to collect the 843.5 lbs of food from students and spectators who brought items to the game. A whopping total of $1041 was also raised from gate admission and donated by WCHS staff. Marsha Barteski-Hoberg with WCHS Comfort for a Cause says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;thank you Sofina employees for modelling the importance of community volunteerism and providing our students first hand knowledge of how important it is for all citizens including high school students to support community initiatives.â&#x20AC;? photo courtesy of Morris Sokul

Birch Hills shines as part of the hometown tours By Becky Zimmer Journal Editor

It was beautiful Sept. 26 when CTV Saskatoon Hometown Tours pulled into Birch Hills. Birch Hills Mayor, Shirley Ulvild, says that they were a little short on notice but it was such a good experience for the town. “We were so pleased to have them come.” The Town of Birch Hills was proud to show off the multiuse facility that will be repurposed from the old Co-op to house the library, Lions Club clubhouse, and a seniors space, and do a little line dancing, have lunch at Birch Tree cafe, watching little dancers at the dance studio, as well as touring the school, museum, and other Birch Hills attractions. “Anytime you can promote your town, that’s just a bonus.” Ulvild was happy about the enthusiasm the CTV team showed as they toured the town and received many compliments about Birch Hills after the segment aired. Even her granddaughters out in Alberta had a chance to see the segment and were impressed.

Jeff Rogstad was on the road again for the hometown tour, this time with fellow CTV personality Stephanie Massicotte. Rogstad himself is from Watson so he knows the struggle of moving a small Saskatchewan town forward. That is what they look for when choosing towns to show off, says Rogstad. “When you see towns that are forward thinking and they are trying to do things to ensure the prosperity of the towns, we know Saskatchewan is facing a lot of challenges. What is exciting for me, for someone who is from a small town, is to be in communities where locals are doing things and not just wanting to sit back and say, ‘when will the good times return.’ They are making things happen.” What impressed him in Birch Hills is how they embrace their proximity to Prince Albert but still work to retain their own identity by building on that and providing their own programs. “Part of that quality of life is the programming they offer for families, for older citizens. But this whole notion of we have things to offer you and a different lifestyle than you’d

have in city and yet being so close to Prince Albert, it’s not as if you’re so far away from those things that you won’t be able to take advantage of them.” Going to small Saskatchewan towns and telling their story goes beyond which town has which giant mascot outside of town, says Rogstad, it is finding out the stories behind the town. “Grumpy’s cafe as an example, these are the things that stick out. Yes, every small town has a convenience store and not all of them have a great backstory. This one did.” Rogstad says that you have to take the time to look for these types of story and they have found plenty all over Saskatchewan. The similarities are there, says Rogstad, but these communities do distinguish themselves. “The way those communities distinguish themselves from each other happen to be the stories themselves. Even though they have certain facilities that are similar on the surface.” Rogstad always appreciates the hospitality he receives when travelling around Saskatchewan for the hometown tours.

Why sell the golden egg? By Devan C. Tasa Tisdale Recorder Parkland Review Editor If you had a golden egg that magically made your food bill cheaper, would you sell it for a quick payday? That’s what it would be like for the residents of Saskatchewan if they sold off SaskTel. Cell phone prices are dirt cheap in this province. In Saskatchewan, I pay $66.68 for five gigabytes of data and unlimited nationwide calling and texting. In B.C., I’d have to pay $15 to $20 more to get a similar plan with only two gigabytes of data. I’ll add I don’t have a SaskTel phone right now. So what’s the difference between those two places? SaskTel. Just merely having the company in the province forces the other telecoms to lower their prices to more reasonable levels, instead of giving customers a song and dance about how the large prices and small population makes it more expensive to build the infrastructure needed to support their services.

OUR PROGRAMS INCLUDE: Humboldt and Area Supported Employment Program (HASEP) is designed to support individuals with barriers to Įnd employment in their community. Community Inclusion Support Services (CISS) provides integraƟve case management services to families, respite registry, social clubs, parent educaƟon & support group, and a summer recreaƟon program. HILDA Home provides residenƟal services for individuals with challenges. • 682-1455

SaskTel is a tool the province can use to keep prices low. If it’s sold off, it will have a hard time having an effect on the market, as telecommunication regulation is mostly a federal responsibility. SaskTel even makes the province money – taxpayers aren’t losing anything by keeping it in provincial hands. Premier Brad Wall has asked the people of the province to consider the idea that if a good price was offered for the company and it was sold off, the money could be used to reduce the province’s debt. Then, with fewer interest payments, the province could spend more money on other services or reduce taxes. The question for me is: would that benefit taxpayers more than low cell phone rates? Don’t forget – some form of phone is a necessity for living in today’s society. So let’s keep that golden egg that keeps our cell phone rate cheap – I’m not sure if any company will be able to offer a deal that outweighs what benefits we currently get.
