Operation Christmas Child:

Pack a shoebox to help children across the world Sasha-Gay Lobban

Samaritan’s Purse, the Christian relief and development organization will be having their National Collection Week on November 12-18 where they will be collecting shoeboxes filled with treasures to donate all over the world through their Operation Christmas Child program (OCC). Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on project that brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoeboxes packed by Canadians. Samaritan’s Purse says this is one way to remind children suffering because of war, poverty, famine, disease, and disaster that they are loved and not forgotten. Each year, millions of shoeboxes are packed with gifts by people in Canada and nine other “sending” countries and given to children in more than 100 “receiving” countries. Last year, Moose Jaw packed over 1800 shoeboxes to donate to children in some of these countries. Operation Christmas Child volunteers in Moose Jaw are hoping to collect and pack hundreds of shoeboxes again this year. Connect OCC volunteer Mary Ellen Willis says volunteers work all year to promote this program and collect shoeboxes. Willis hopes to pack as many boxes as possible because each one will make

Some items that can pack a shoebox. an impact and bring hope. “We packed about 1800 boxes and shipped to Calgary last year. Canada-wide, over 700,000 were packed and sent to different countries; Ukraine, Central and Latin America, parts of Africa, Philippines, Haiti and more. I’ve been to Costa Rica and Ecuador to distribute shoeboxes and the reception has been awe-inspiring and I hope to visit even more countries on this initiative. Every box is important.” What can be in a shoebox? Some of the items that can be packed in a shoebox box are: A “wow” item: you can start with a medium or large item that will capture a child’s attention when he or she opens it. This can be a doll, soccer ball, stuffed animals etc.; toys; school supplies: pencils, sharpeners, crayons, markers, notebooks, coloring and picture books; non-liquid hygiene items like toothbrushes, bar soap, combs and washcloths; accessories like t-shirts, socks, hats, sunglasses, hair clips, jewelry, watches, flashlights with extra batteries and more; crafts: you can make your own items like friendship bracelets. You can also add a personal note and a photo of yourself, family or group and you can also make a donation of $10. DO NOT INCLUDE:

Candy; toothpaste; used or damaged items; war-related items such as toy guns, knives, or military figures; chocolate or food; fruit rolls or other fruit snacks; drink mixes (powdered or liquid); liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers; aerosol cans. OCC shoeboxes can be purchased at the church (Victory Church), Walmart, Dollar Store, Superstore. Shoeboxes can be dropped off at Moose Jaw Alliance Church at 9th Avenue & Thatcher Drive NW or Moose Jaw Victory Church at 637 Main St N. Persons can also phone to have their boxes picked up by Mary Allen Willis at 306.693.4861. Packing day will be on Friday, November 2 (come and go) at 5pm10pm at the Moose Jaw Victory Church.

Standing up for Saskatchewan

MLAs Column

Standing up for Saskatchewan is the commitment made in the Throne Speech to open the Fall Sitting of the Legislature. Last Wednesday, Lieutenant Governor W. Thomas Molloy delivWarren Michelson, MLA ered the speech which referenced both growth and challenges in our province. I was pleased that several Moose Jaw North constituents were able to attend the ceremony. Our economy and our provincial finances are showing signs of improvement. However, many challenges remain, coming from international jurisdictions, and even from our own federal government. The Saskatchewan Party government will continue to meet these challenges by working to protect and grow our economy, and by carefully managing taxpayers’ dollars while delivering important programs and services needed by the people of our province. We will stand up for Saskatchewan against the carbon tax that Prime Minister Trudeau is imposing on us. We will reduce our environmental impact with our Prairie Resilience Strategy. We will stand up for our people and our province. We will stand up against higher costs for families to get to work and to heat their homes. We will stand up against higher costs for municipalities, schools and hospitals. We will move ahead with the constitutional reference case to challenge the federal government’s ability to impose a carbon tax on our province. We will continue to stand up

for our industries. Safety, health and education, important to everyone in our province, were all addressed in the Throne Speech. There will be increased funding to improve highway intersection safety throughout the province. Changes will be made to improve commercial driver training. By the spring, cellular service in 50 rural communities will be improved as part of a plan to increase 4G LTE coverage in 100 Saskatchewan communities. We will introduce legislation on trespassing laws to better address the balance between members of the public and the rights of rural land owners. The Throne Speech reaffirmed our commitment to reduce emergency room wait times. Improving access to mental health services continues, as crisis teams pairing a police officer with a mental health professional will be fully operational this winter here in Moose Jaw, as well as in North Battleford and Prince Albert. Our education system must continually adapt to prepare our students for a fast-changing workforce and personal life. New curricula will be piloted in 2019 to improve students’ understanding and skills in financial literacy. Opportunities in coding and robotics will be incorporated into middle years and high school classrooms to help prepare our students for careers in science, technology, engineering and math. Lieutenant Governor Molloy reflected in the Throne Speech that “strength is built as challenges are faced head on”. Locally, our businesses on High Street faced a significant challenge for several months in 2017 and 2018. In facing the challenge, these businesses and the Moose Jaw Chamber of Commerce have banded together to celebrate the re-opening of High Street with a BBQ Party, this Saturday, October 27, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. There will be free food, music, and entertainment for the kids. Please come down and join the fun. I hope to see you there.

Throne speech sets tone for upcoming Sask. election campaign By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

A wide-ranging pre-election year Throne speech outlining the Saskatchewan Party program for the current legislative session was delivered by Lt.-Gov. W. Thomas Molloy. Key measures in the 24-page document promised a balanced budget, enhanced rural policing and safety measures plus a continued fight against a federal carbon tax while pursuing a Saskatchewan climate change policy. Reiterating the court challenge to the tax to “stand up for the people,” the speech claimed “this tax is an ineffective policy that will not significantly reduce emissions. It will harm our economy and make life less affordable for Saskatchewan people.” The speech noted research from the University of Regina confirms a carbon tax would reduce Saskatchewan GDP by $16 billion by 2030 but the federal plan would only reduce emissions by one per cent. The Prairie Resilience Climate Change Strategy includes commitments to reduce annual emissions by almost 12 million tonnes by 2030, cut emissions from electrical generation by 40 per cent, and decrease


methane emissions from oil and gas production by 40 per cent. On safety, the speech outlined successes of the Protective Response Team in addressing rural crime and tougher impaired driving laws. New laws will allow municipalities with less than 500 population to enter regional police services and make seizure of property obtained by crime easier. Trespassing laws will “better address” the balance between rural land owner rights and the public. Domestic violence legislation will make Saskatchewan the first Canadian province to allow police to disclose information about a violent past to intimate partners. Two new hospitals will be completed along with 14 long-term care facilities and two new schools. A single procurement agency for $2 billion worth of goods and services purchases is expected to save millions. The commitment to reducing hospital wait times continues with three more team-based accountable care units. Mental health services will be enhanced

with police crisis officers including in Moose Jaw. Multi-disciplinary community recovery teams will be added in eight communities. Education funding will increase by $30 million allowing 400 more teachers. The Saskatchewan Employment Act will be amended to expand parental leave from 37 weeks to 63 weeks and add an additional week of maternity leave. The low-income tax credit seniors’ benefit will triple taking 112,000 people off the provincial income tax rolls. The province will apologize to First Nations for the Sixties Scoop when Indigenous children were adopted by white parents. The earned income threshold for earnings by income assistance clients may be increased. Commercial driver training will be reviewed. All Canadian veterans will get free hunting and fishing licenses.

To purchase tickets, call or visit us online:


REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Concert ticket deals sting secret code buyers The sale of concert/event tickets is a challenging task, one not for the faintof-heart nor for agencies that don’t quite know what they’re about. Nor is it always fun for the buyer of those tickets. When major concert announcements are made, there is usually a secondJoyce Walter ary detail that is almost as important as the name For Moose Jaw Express of the performer/group — and that is when tickets will be available for the buying public. In years gone by, two methods were available to buyers: a phone-in option or going in person to stand in line for hours to get the best seats in the house. With the major venue located outside Moose Jaw, the option was limited to having a fast dial-up finger, or even slower, ordering via mail and hoping there would be tickets in stock by the time the letter reached its destination. Technology has changed the buying options, with online sales being the most efficient choice — as long as internet servers don’t crash because of intense buying interest or horrors, power failures affecting Wi-Fi op-


erations. While some buyers might not like it, the pre-sale of tickets for loyal listeners, season ticket holders for hockey teams in the venue or for fan club members of the featured group, is a bit of a reward for those people who fit into these categories. There’s always a “secret” code provided to those individuals, so interlopers aren’t able to take advantage of the early bird opportunity. Ticket sellers are naive if they think the “secret” code is being kept a secret. Friends share with friends who aren’t in the select circle and those friends share with even more friends, so that when tickets go on sale to the general public, the seat choice has been thoroughly picked over and picked up. I admit to taking full advantage of the pre-sale opportunity for several concerts in Moose Jaw and elsewhere. But even with the code in hand, it is sometimes difficult to get the preferred seats by the time I scroll through all the required fields necessary to prove who I am and that I am entitled to buy two seats a few rows from the stage (hoping no one is rude enough to stand up in front of us.) When I heard one of my favourite groups was returning to Moose Jaw, I was right there on pre-sale day, computer ready for me to hit “buy” and complete my transaction. By the time I managed all the steps, the best seats on the floor were 10 rows back, but two aisle





seats were available. Lucky me to get them and it was only five minutes after pre-sale began. The tickets were quickly printed and stashed away in my safe place to wait nearly seven months for the concert date. Then one day on the same week as the show, the venue offers a deal for the very concert for which I and hundreds of others paid full price. Buy three and get the fourth ticket free is the enticement — almost like buy three tires and get the fourth one free. Only there’s never a rush to buy tires and no lineups or secret codes for winter tires. And unlike buying a dress or shirt, there is no return policy for concert tickets. If it were a dress I could return it for a full refund and then turn around and buy it at the sale price — tacky maybe but I know it is done. Friends in retail have told me so and therefore I know it happens. No such luck at the concert box office. The early birds got the worm, but the worm suddenly isn’t all that tasty. So instead of enjoying the concert to the fullest extent, I will glance at the folks in neighbouring seats and wonder if they are among the stung early birds or johnny-come-lately buyers who got the four-for-three deal. Venue operators: is that any way to treat your loyal buyers? Just business, you say? Pity. Joyce Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

Buffalo Treatment Plant to see major upgrades Sasha-Gay Lobban

After almost 30 years, the Buffalo Water Treatment Plant will be receiving well needed upgrades. The Government of Saskatchewan recently announced more than $20 million in federal-provincial funding to upgrade electrical systems at the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant. The remainder of the estimated $32.1 million project will be funded by the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Corporation, which is owned by the cities of Regina and Moose Jaw. Work involves replacing the plant’s aging electrical substation, improving the power supply and upgrading the raw water pumps to prevent future electrical failures. Once complete, this work will ensure the plant has a reliable and sustainable source of back-up power to minimize service interruptions and prevent drinking water advisories for the approximately 260,000 residents it serves. “These vital upgrades to the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant will ensure residents of Regina and Moose Jaw have an uninterrupted supply of high-quality drinking water for years to come,â€? said Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, on behalf of François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, and Government Relations Minister Warren Kaeding. “Canada’s investment in this project underlines our commitment to protecting public health and our quality of life, all while bolstering economic growth and a strong middle class.â€? Ryan Johnson, Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Corporation says the upgrade is welcomed because the fa-

cility hasn’t been upgraded in 30 years. “The treatment plant is owned by the Cities of Regina and Moose Jaw. It is run under an independent Board of Directors as a non-profit corporation. The water treatment plant itself was commissioned back in 1955 and the last major work was done was 1989 when they expanded the plant. The treatment plant produces potable water for the Cities of Regina and Moose Jaw and we supply water to approximately 260,000 people in the region. So, for the most part, we’re the sole source of water for those communities that are on the system,� said Johnson. “Typically, a water treatment plant will undergo renovations every 20 or so years and we’re pretty much approaching the 30 year mark since the last time we’ve done major upgrades. We are near the end of life with our assets that can cause frequency in breaks. Over the last 5 years, we’ve seen an increase in maintenance and things we had to do to keep functioning. � Johnson said a business case was developed which identified what areas of the plant that need to be addressed immediately. “We started a business case in 2016, completed in 2017 and we found that we really needed to look at doing major work at the plant. We have done about 30 research projects on things at the plant that we know needs to be dealt with. What we don’t know is other things that haven’t failed yet or could fail soon because we haven’t looked at every aspect of the facility. With the business case, we looked at the problems that we know about. It identified that we needed to start doing something now and over the next 5 years.�

He explained the next steps going forward. “What we’re doing now is going out in the market to find designing and construction teams to do work at the facility. We’ll choose up to three teams or groups of companies to shortlist to do some design work and we will choose the best design at a certain stage. Subsequently, we’ll decide if we’ll proceed with that design. We hope to select the teams by the end of this year and design will start in January. In late 2019, we’ll pick one of those teams to continue with the process. We should start seeing some construction in 2020. The whole process won’t be complete until about 2023. That’s our goal.� The City of Moose Jaw welcomed the recent announcement. “This is tremendous news for Moose Jaw residents and all Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant customers,� Mayor Fraser Tolmie said. “The importance of a safe water supply can’t be over-stated, and we are grateful to the federal and provincial governments for their significant partnership stake in these crucial plant upgrades.� “The Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Corporation is extremely pleased with this funding announcement of financial support by the Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan for the Electrical Capital Upgrades Project,� Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Corporation Board Chair Dale Schoffer said. “These funds will be used to replace electrical infrastructure that has reached the end of its life and increases the reliability of the supply of potable water to the Cities of Regina and Moose Jaw and the Region we serve.�

Post-secondary/Career Day at Vanier Collegiate provides options for students Sasha-Gay Lobban

Students and members of the community got an opportunity to receive some important information at Vanier Collegiate’s Post Secondary and Career Day, held on Monday, October 22 Over 22 organizations including universities, local businesses, financial institutions and the Canadian Armed Forces spread out across the school with booths and presentations related to post-secondary options and other opportunities available for students following high school. The school hosted two sessions during the day, giving grades 9-12 students an opportunity to network and seek out information according to their interests. Organizations also held information sessions for grade 11 and 12 students which also included one-on-one sessions for students interested in finding out more information about their field of choice. Teacher and organizer, Christa Lapointe said it was important to bring this information to students and the community. “We had over 22 organizations to present and share information with students about their programs, courses to our students. During the afternoon, we had a display area where booths were set up and grades 9-12 were able to go out, mingle and ask questions. This allowed them to get exposed to some of the options available after high school. Our school finds value in making sure that our students know that there are a variety of options after high school that they can start exploring,” Lapointe said. “Also, every single grade 11 and 12 student got an opportunity to pick two sessions that they attended where some organizations made presentations. We made it an all-day even; in the evening, the community, parents and anyone from

where I’m really interested in pursuing my post-secondary education.” The Canadian Armed Forces who were also on site; they were able to spread the word on all the things they offer. Sgt. Steven Cox with the Saskatchewan Dragoons said they were happy to provide information for the community to let people know that many options are available. “This was a very successful event for us. Our main goal was to show that part-time and full-time jobs are available in the Canadian Armed Forces. And if they so choose to pick a part-time or full-time job with us, they have tons of options to pay for education, as well as have employment over the summer. the public could attend to also seek information on options available, whether it is for their children or someone considering going back to school. This is a really big step for many students and so, we try to provide as much information as possible to make the transition easier,” she added. The students also welcomed this opportunity stating that the information they received will make it easier for them to transition after high school. Grade 12 student, Keegan Hall, felt the same. “I got to speak with representatives from Lakeland College for firefighting because that’s something I want to do. I got to have a one-on-one which added a personal touch to it and they were able to tell me about their programs and all the information I needed to pursue firefighting, so it was great. I think it’s a really great thing that the school puts on because it is really important that we get to learn about these universities which opens up a lot of options for us. It makes life post-secondary easier.”

Bethany Bauck, a grade 11 student said she loved the hands-on experience she received. “It’s been really fun at the career day activities. I got to do hands-on stuff like learning how to do an ‘up do’ on my friend’s hair with Elite Hairstyling.” And Jenna Meili, another grade 12 student said Career Day career day opened her eyes to all the different options that Saskatchewan has to offer and where she could go to school in Canada. “I’m really interested in Arts & Sciences and I got to see how many programs offer that, like the University of Regina,

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) conference raises awareness and breaks down stigmas Sasha-Gay Lobban

The Moose Jaw South Central FASD Committee, in partnership with the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute hosted the very first Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) conference in Moose Jaw on Friday, October 19 to raise awareness surrounding what they call an “invisible disability.” The conference titled: Building Capacity and Connections saw several speakers providing pertinent information to the community surrounding FASD and how people can provide support. Organizers for the conference say that the main purpose of the conference is to raise awareness and normalize conversations about FASD. Shannon Gray, one of the organizers of the FASD conference said it was important to bring this information to the community. “From this conference, we’re hoping to build our community capacity and raise awareness around FASD, reduce stigma and what we can do to support persons living with FASD by working together. This is the first conference of this type in Moose Jaw and it has been a success and we hope to host more events in the future

However, only about 1 out of 10 people with FASD have distinctive facial features. So, it is important for people to recognize that this is an invisible disability; there are physical aspects, developmental aspects and cognitive aspects,” she emphasized. She continued, “But we want people to understand that if someone is acting differently or behaves a certain way, it may be based on a brain-based disability that can’t be seen. We have to look pass the behaviour and figure out what may be causing such behaviour and subsequently provide support.

Some alternate thoughts to plans for rebranding Moose Jaw’s image The folks at city hall are upset at the comment in an Oct. 13 Trading Thoughts column that said the cost of rebranding the city is $60,000. City council has not decided how much it will spend on the program to rebrand the by Ron Walter city. We are told the money will come out of the existing budget. Yours Truly was sure he heard the cost would be $60,000. My apologies if anyone was misled by that column. The point of that column was to show money spent on a rebranding of the city isn’t the most prudent use of tax money, be it $6,000, $60,000 or $160,000. Plans to rebrand the downtown or tourist sector are fine. Both should have enough like-interested enthusiasts to make it work. Given the city’s diverse interests – union and nonunion as one example — a city rebranding does not make sense. The chamber of commerce on Facebook threw its weight behind rebranding to get more business and industry

What’s a Podiatrist and Should I See One? Dr. Ata Stationwala

Dr. Ata Stationwala is a podiatrist in Moose Jaw and will be contributing a monthly column on the subject. In today’s world, we tend to see various health care professionals for a variety of different health conditions. That said, your feet tend to be forgotten. Foot pain can have a significant impact on both physical and mental health. Loss of mobility can significantly impact a person’s wellbeing. We see a dentist regularly because we know the importance of good oral health. We see an optometrist because we know without good vision our life will be impacted in a very significant way. Your feet should get no less attention. Most people don’t realize how valuable healthy feet are until they develop pain or a limitation in

Business locates on a simple formula: are the resources needed to offer the product or service there? Are there enough skilled workers? Will costs be low enough to make a profit? Occasionally, community amenities – schools, recreation – are a factor. If the city really wants to attract investment and industry, it needs to develop a business development program to sell the city to investors. You don’t attract business by sitting in an office answering e-mails and phone calls. You attract more sales, more business by knocking on doors and promoting yourself in the face of competition. We do compete with thousands of other communities for business. No Moose Jaw council, in my 52 years here, has ever done more than pay lip-service to business and industrial development. Budgets are enough to hire a qualified person but not to support the promotion needed to be more effective. Everyone on council wants the development but nobody is willing to spend on what will likely be longterm returns – and returns are not guaranteed. A new business strategy should have a two-pronged effort. In the short term, most of our new jobs and invest-

Podiatrists are medically trained foot and ankle specialists. On a daily basis, podiatrist treat a wide range of conditions including arthritis pain, bunions, calluses and corns, ingrown toenails, sports injuries and more. They are trained to diagnose infections of the foot and toenails. They treat patients with foot and ankle complications related to obesity, diabetes, and peripheral arterial disease. Anyone reading this article who has been impacted by foot problems can attest to the impact it has had on their lives. Over the next several months, I will be writing articles covering a variety of topics related to foot and ankle health. From the basics, such as what to look for in the person caring for your feet, to more complicated conditions such as heel pain. Over 20 years of practice I have treated many conditions that could have been prevented with some valuable information. I encourage you to read the articles that are coming.


ment comes from local business and investors. Talk to them, see what they need to help expand and act accordingly. The second prong should be attracting new business and industry from outside. Target the business sectors most likely to locate here: users of grain and livestock and related commerce. The enterprise regions, established by the Brad Wall government in 2009, worked that way. The local region sowed the seeds in 2009 for municipal airport expansion. It took seven years for the report to have impact. And that is why councils and many taxpayers are reluctant to spend on attracting business. The payoff takes so long. The provincial enterprise region model was scrapped in 2012. Too many of the regions were still squabbling over issues like location of the office. The Moose Jaw group was told it was one of the most effective in Saskatchewan. Yours Truly is proud to have been on that board. Perhaps the time has come for the province to develop another enterprise region model and assist municipal councils with this vital matter.

The Interwwweb Killed It

A lot of my stories begin from conversations I have with some buddies down at our local coffee shop, Jim Norton’s. This one is no different. For some reason we were talking/ discussing/arguing about whether or not the Olympic torch had been to the by Dale “bushy” Bush top of Mount Everest (it was in 2008) and it only took a few seconds before the interwwweb and a buddy’s smart phone had confirmed what I knew to be fact. That effectively ended that part of a brilliant conversation and we all remembered the good old days when after a spirited-discussion we would hurry home to check our particulars by digging out the encyclopedia and seeing the facts in black and white and maybe a photo. When someone jokingly said, “What’s an encyclopedia?” the conversation topic quickly became the interwwweb and what it has eliminated. There was a time when a night at the movies was exactly that. You went to the theatre and ate candy that you would only eat at the movies, sat/slept through the movie, then went home. Then they invented the video machine. Instead of standing in line at the theatre, you could rent a movie of your

choice and watch or sleep through a movie in the comfort of your own home. When the interwwweb came along, it wasn’t long before the video stores were as obsolete as the encyclopedia. Instead of watching a movie on video you could now “stream” a movie or video to be played on your I-thingy anywhere in the world, including the top of Mount Everest when they had the Olympic Torch there. The interwwweb killed the video store. Many years ago, musicians and recording artists would pay their dues by performing for years before they recorded a single note in the studio. Then they would release an album and sell as many LPs as possible by touring and promoting that record. These days, the interwwweb and computers have changed how music is made, played, viewed and sold, with very little emphasis put on true talent. Computer and interwwweb gadgets, gizmos and googahs (called “Apps”) can now make a tone-deaf, tin-eared, timing-challenged and talentless ukulele strummer into a interwwweb superstar overnight. And if you are a cute 3year old, you may have it made! The interwwweb killed record albums…and musicians paying their dues. The interwwweb is slowly killing the printed word. Sadly, that includes some newspapers, maps, books and maybe most notably telephone books, which now are printed with microscopic type and seem to be a formality. If you have an I-thingy, you have

no need for a map because not only will your smartI-thingy tell you where to go (politely), turn by turn, it will even show photos of landmarks and road signs making it almost impossible to get lost. I will admit, there are folks who have been saved from being hopelessly lost by this interwwweb feature, but I know there are cases where they become hopelessly lost because of this feature. Getting lost with a map, you can usually only blame yourself…or your wife… if you dare! The interwwweb has killed something in me that is very difficult to measure, called patience. I now get testy and irritable when I have to wait a few seconds for Ol’ Betsy (my laptop) to boot up. If I get a “searching” message, my fingers and toes start tapping and it isn’t because of a song in my head. The interwwweb has very easily killed my patience. Like it or hate it, we are all affected by the interwwweb. We just need to be tolerant of those changes and hope those changes are positive.

Switching dependence from U.S. export markets no easy task AGRIMART

EXPRESS In the wake of the new trade agreement with the United States and Mexico, some observers say Canada needs to shift exports away from the southern neighbours. That shift of trade would reduce dependence on United States’ goodwill to accept Canadian products. In landlocked Saskatchewan, our easiest export markets to penetrate have been the United States; being next door reduces freight costs and makes for a natural customer.

City Hall Council Notes

Council welcomes back Eby; operating budgets presented

Your dream home awaits ...

Service that is personal, honest and professional

City rebranding plan also part of council deliberations Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Heather Eby might be the City of Moose Jaw’s newest city councillor, but she’s not a raw rookie. Eby emerged victorious from the recent by-election to fill the spot vacated by Don Mitchell’s resignation, claiming 41.13 per cent of the 3,161 votes. As a result, Eby finds herself in a familiar position after serving two terms with council beginning in 2009. “I certainly wasn’t expecting there to be a by-election, but I always had hope that I would have a chance at another election and when this came open in the spring I was excited about it,” Eby said. “I really had to think it through because my family wasn’t completely on board right out of the gate, but it’s great to be able to serve the citizens of Moose Jaw again.” Eby’s prior experience came into play quickly – she was named the new chair of the personnel committee during her first meeting on Oct. 22 and had little difficulty settling into the ‘new’ position. “I hadn’t been away that long and it just felt really natural to be a part of it all and get back into it,” Eby said, adding that prior to her first visit with mayor Fraser Tolmie and city manager Jim Puffalt she was asked if she was there for her orientation. “I was ‘nope, not really’,” Eby said with a laugh. “I just went and found the things I knew I needed and talked to the people I knew I needed to talk to and settled in a bit. There are some files and materials that I’m not aware of so I’m reading a lot and catching up a bit with those things, but as far as procedures and processes I’m pretty comfortable with it.” So, now it’s down to business – and once Eby is back up to speed, it’ll be time to once again face the decisions that affect the City of Moose Jaw, both large and small. “There’s always something to work on, things that come up and need to be dealt with and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to have a chance to do all that again,” Eby said. **** Coun. Crystal Froese introduced a motion that “the city manager direct staff to create a formal policy framework that outlines governance requirements for third-party boards that hold agreements and/or contracts to steward property and/ or land owned by the City of Moose Jaw.” The motion came on the heels of the recent Downtown Field House and Facility controversy that saw three councilliors – Froese, Scott McMann and Brian Swanson – all receive varying level of sanctions for their actions while working on the DFFH board of directors. Tolmie supported the motion, saying the overall objective is to address governance issues that could occur on boards with city council involvement and ways to ensure clear and concise reporting when it comes to board meetings. The motion was referred to city administration, with a report expected early in the new year. **** Council continued the process of updating the city’s strategic plan, using a report from the day-long ‘13 Ways to Kill Your Community’ discussion session with Doug Griffiths on June 7 as a base for the

Heather Eby is sworn in as the newest member of Moose Jaw City Council after winning the recent byelection improvement and revisions. City manager Jim Puffalt said putting operation plans and objectives into place going forward was going to be a key component for the process in coming months, with budgetary effects potentially revealing themselves by year’s end. “If there’s something that has a budgetary impact and we don’t quite have the stepsby-steps done, we’ll address council at that time,” Puffalt said, adding that an action plan is expected to be put together in the new year. Mayor Fraser Tolmie supported the motion to move forward. “I think the community as a whole is happy with this and most councillors are happy with the presentation that happened,” Tolmie said. “A lot of the things since then we’ve been working on and putting into place just naturally, but I think we need to strike while the iron is hot and not lose momentum on this.” **** Council received the operating budget proposal for the Moose Jaw Police Service, which is seeking a funding total of $9,809,647, up 3.35 per cent from last year’s $9,491,247. The additional funds cover the wide variety of current programs, in addition to a host of new initiatives that include requirements surrounding cannabis legalization and increased focus on traffic safety and the MJPS’ ongoing participation in the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls inquiry. **** Moose Jaw Public Library head librarian Gwen Fisher addressed council with regards to operating budget estimates for 2019. Their current estimate net requisition from the city is $1,199,591, an essentially status quo budget featuring an increase of $38,275 to continue to current level of programming service.

Gaining confidence and skills from Toastmasters Matthew Gourlie -- Moose Jaw Express

Lynn Halstead made a confident pitch to new people to join Toastmasters. At a public information meeting at the Moose Jaw Public Library, Halstead made compelling points about the organization and what it did for her. Still, hearing her speak was a solid argument on its own. By her own admission, Halstead is not a comfortable public speaker, but that doesn’t mean she can’t confidently deliver a speech in public. “To stand up in front of a group has always petrified me,� Halstead told the group. “I was having panic attacks coming tonight, even though I have been at Toastmaster for three years.

It’s quick, but they do the speeches; they’re timed. They do the evaluations. It’s pretty amazing to watch some of the kids and then eight weeks later your mind is blown: ‘wow, look at the confidence!’ They can stand up and say a speech instead of standing behind a lectern being so quiet you can’t even hear them. To see them mature and grow in such a short amount of time is pretty amazing.� In addition to making speeches at Toastmasters, members also evaluate the speeches of their peers. Toastmasters also offers the pathways educational program to help members in their professional development. They also have speech competitions in categories such as: humorous, evaluation, tall tales, table topics and international speech contests. Halstead stressed that members can go at their own pace and get what they want out of the organization. Halstead will chair the Toastmasters regional spring conference in Moose Jaw next May. The conference will draw approximately 150 Toastmasters from across southern Saskatchewan and southern Alberta.

Locals express views on legalization of cannabis Sasha-Gay Lobban

The legalization of cannabis officially took effect on October 17 and the news has been a talking point for many conversations, particularly, because Moose Jaw is one of the cities in the province that will have two stores providing the well talked about product. The Express caught up with some locals, who expressed their views on the legalization of cannabis across Canada. While many persons (some of whom did not want to be named) say they do not have a problem with this move, some urged people to be cautious, as with other products such as alcohol. Here are some of the views expressed by some locals: “I’m not against it at all. I think there is way too much hype around it right now because there are major corporations investing and they don’t know how much they’ll get out of it. I think after a while, the hype around it will die down. I don’t see a problem with it even though I think it wasn’t rolled out properly. ”—Dan “I’m not against it. I am all for it for medicinal reasons if it’s going to help people with pain management. Once it’s helpful, I don’t see any reasons why not.”—Anonymous “Personally, I have no problem with the legalization of cannabis. If people are going to use it, they might as well be able to get it legally. I know that the cannabis that is available today is far more potent than it used to be years ago. When I smoked pot in the 70s, we just got the regular strengths and it was enjoyable but now people who want the hybrid strengths, I hear they are very potent so for first-time users, it wouldn’t be a good idea for them to try it. Personally, I’m not smoking it today because of religious reasons and it’s something that I prefer not to be involved with as a result. But, I don’t have a problem with it becoming legal.”—Linda

“I think it’s a good thing. I think it’s going to keep it out of the underground so that people who are not supposed to profit it from it won’t. I think it’s a good idea because there are lots of people who use it for medicinal reasons like pain management and different skin conditions. There are all sorts of benefits that can come from it based on good research. I know people who’ve got medical license to use it because it does help them, so I think it’s a good idea and I hope this will keep it out of the hands of those who shouldn’t have it. There is lots more hurtful stuff out there than marijuana.”—Anonymous On the other hand, some persons are concerned about the effects it may have on some people. Some expressed caution especially for some groups like youth and pregnant women. “It is legal, but it doesn’t mean that it is ok to do in certain situations like pregnancy. Zero amount is a safe amount so now that it is acceptable, doesn’t mean that everyone is supposed to use it, especially for those at risk. Persons should exercise some amount of caution and be aware.”—Sandra “The Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists across Canada, CanFASD Research Network and Canadian Association of Substance Abuse and the Prevention Institute, all recommend that cannabis must not be used in pregnancy. There is no proven safe amount for an unborn baby and it is healthier for mom and baby to not be using this substance during pregnancy. There are resources that persons can access for more information and guidelines as this change takes place for provinces. One of them is the Center for Addictions and Mental Health’s ‘Guide to cannabis legalization’ which was recently published. You can find more information at www.cmha.ca ”—Marlene Dray, Saskatchewan Prevention Institute.

Cannabis: Be Informed Rules in Saskatchewan LEGAL AGE: 19 You must be at least 19 years old to purchase or consume cannabis in Saskatchewan.

POSSESSION LIMIT The limit is 30 grams per adult in a public space. Minors are prohibited from possessing any amount of cannabis, and possession of more than five grams can result in a criminal prosecution for minors.

WHERE IT’S SOLD Cannabis can only be sold through online and private stores and is regulated by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority. It is only legal to purchase cannabis from a licensed retailer. Selling or buying illicit cannabis is still illegal.

CANNABIS AND DRIVING In Saskatchewan there is zero tolerance for drugimpaired driving. In addition, consumption by a driver or passenger in a vehicle is prohibited.

PUBLIC CONSUMPTION Consuming cannabis in public places is prohibited to protect public health.

TRAVELING WITH CANNABIS OUTSIDE CANADA It is illegal to take cannabis across the Canadian border. This applies to all countries, whether cannabis is legal there or not. INSIDE CANADA Provinces and territories have different rules about cannabis use and age limits. Do your research before leaving Saskatchewan. Visit saskatchewan.ca/cannabis for more information, including resources to help answer your health-related questions about cannabis.


Police reminds locals to be responsible as pot stores open in Moose Jaw One of the two licensed cannabis retail stores in Moose Jaw is now open for business. New Leaf Emporium made its debut last week as it opened its doors to lines of people looking to purchase their cannabis products. New Leaf, located at 602 Main St N, is locally operated and is happy to open for business in Moose Jaw, a historic move for the community as cannabis becomes legal in Canada. The store is open daily, 12pm-8:00pm. You can find New Leaf on Facebook where the store posts daily updates. In order to enter the store, you have to produce your government issued ID. Meanwhile, the other store SPIRITLEAF, located at 6-10, 1251 Main St N, is not yet open but says they will be operating soon. SPIRITLEAF is a family owned business. They say they are looking forward to operating in Moose Jaw. The family who is from Saskatoon has now relocated to Moose Jaw for this exciting new business venture. The franchise owners, who spoke exclusively to the Express, Darcy Fisher and his children Mandy, Chelsea and Dylan said they are happy to be in Moose Jaw. “Construction is almost complete, and we are awaiting some shipments to make sure we are fully prepared, and our staff are fully trained. We’ll have a wide range of cannabis strains. We’ll also have some specialized accessories. We love being here in Moose Jaw, two of us will be here

SPIRITLEAF franchise owners Darcy. Mandy, Chelsea and Dylan

Sasha-Gay Lobban fulltime. This is a great opportunity and part of history in the making for us,” said the Fishers. Anyone with a government issued ID over the age of 19 can purchase cannabis (or related products). SPIRITLEAF will open from 10am-10pm, Monday to Saturday and 12noon-8pm on Sundays. The store’s official opening date will be announced soon. In the meantime, the Moose Jaw Police Service says it has been a smooth transition since legislation for the legalization of cannabis came into effect recently. They are however reminding locals to be responsible in the consumption of the product. Chief of the Moose Jaw Police Service, Rick Bourassa says the team is prepared to deal with enforcement matters that may arise from this move. He says the team has been properly trained and made aware of federal and provincial aspects of the legislation. “We in the Police Service had been working with the different government agencies on being informed of the process as the policies were developed to ensure that they were policies we could implement and use operationally. So, we had very good experiences with that and as we move forward, we had to ensure that all our members were trained and made aware of the upcoming legislation. We had training provided at the federal level and provincially to all our members. This was important to us; our people had to know what was happening and conduct the enforcement side of that which had to do with sale and the distribution aspect.” He also noted that like driving under the use of alcohol, members will also be in place to identify and detect driving under the influence of substances such as cannabis. “The second part has to do with impaired driving in the federal and provincial legislation that came out. This is not something new for us in terms of policing across the country. We had been dealing with drug impairment for a long time. We’ve had some things in place like training for our members in relation to Standardize Field Sobriety Testing which is a test of behaviors when we suspect someone may be under the influence of the drug,” he explained. “There’s a next level of that which is Drug Expert Level Training which is very specific training for team members—a three-week period for the course that

New Leaf Emporium detects and identifies impairment by drugs. We’ve had that in place for some time and now with cannabis being a decriminalized substance, we don’t know what to expect in terms of the number of people that may be driving under the influence but we have people in place that can do and provide the proper testing so that we can proceed in the right manner. We’re prepared as much as we can be.” He added that new devices will also come into place to enhance detection. “We will soon be working with a roadside screening device for cannabis detection, much like the road-side test we can give for alcohol impairment. We have a member who is trained on its use and once that comes, we’ll test that. We have also been working very closely with our partners in The Saskatchewan Gaming Authority on the production, distribution and retail network that is in place, so we can address any issues that may come up from legalized sales whether through store front or retail ordering.” Chief Bourassa is reminding locals to be responsible in the consumption of the substance. “We haven’t had an issue so far since the legislation took effect. We’ve not had any complaints or calls around the use of cannabis that has been serious. It has been a relatively smooth transition so far. We encourage everybody to ensure that if they are using these substances, use it in a responsible manner and make sure they aren’t in any way putting anyone at risk, such as behaviour while driving under the influence. We want to also remind people that both alcohol and the consumption of cannabis are prohibited in public spaces.”

Newsies is Cornerstone’s largest production to date Matthew Gourlie

Cornerstone Christian School’s production of Disney’s Newsies: The Broadway Musical is the largest in the school’s history and more than a year in the making. “The planning probably began about 18 months ago,” said Tanya Johnson who is directing Newsies and is the vice-principal at Cornerstone Christian School. “Everything snowballed from there. We did auditions with our kids at the end of May and the beginning of June and we cast the show before school was out for the year. Once school started again, we started rehearsing the second week of September.”

“It’s a big dance show. There’s suspense and fight scenes and lots of action. There’s really something for everyone in this show.” -Tanya Johnson, Director Newsies will run from November 7-10 at the Mae Wilson Theatre with performances starting at 7 p.m. Tickets sales have been brisk and Johnson cautioned that anyone hoping to attend should purchase advance tickets from the Cultural Centre box office or online at www.moosejawculture.ca. “We really want people to go get their tickets early. Our Friday and Saturday night performances are selling really strongly. We don’t want people to put it off and be disappointed,” Johnson said. Newsies has proven to be a big success on Broadway. The original run

Cornerstone Christian School’s production of Disney’s Newsies will be the largest in the school’s history. Newsies runs from November 7-10 at the Mae Wilson Theatre.

featured more than 1,000 shows on Broadway and a North American tour of the show featured 784 more performances and a filmed version of the production that was released to movie theatres. “I think people just really need to come see the show,” Johnson said. “It’s an incredible story. We had guest choreographers come in to help us with some of the huge dance numbers. It’s a big dance show. There’s suspense and fight scenes and lots of action. There’s really something for everyone in this show.” Mounting a production of Newsies was a unique proposition. Music Theatre International, a New York-based the-

atre licensing agency, hadn’t released the rights for the show in Canada. When they hinted it might be available for schools to produce outside of the U.S. and started a countdown clock, Cornerstone started to look into it. “There was a long wait for the production rights to be available for this particular show,” Johnson said. “It is such a great show and it’s always exciting to do new material. They had built it up spectacularly. We kind of caught the bug and joined the bandwagon for that.” Since the rights were made available, the play had been put on by a regional theatre company in Alberta and another that just closed in Brandon, Man.

“From what we can tell, we’re the first school to mount the show in Canada,” Johnson said. “We’re pretty thrilled about that.” Disney produced the musical film Newsies in 1992 based on the true story of the newsboys strike of 1899. A new Broadway production of the play was mounted in 2011 and earned eight Tony Award nominations. Alan Menken and Jack Feldman won the Tony Award for their original score. “They’ve added some different twists and turns in the plot. There’s a few more things that happen and if people are familiar with the movie they will be surprised when they come to see the Broadway version,” Johnson said. “The music is fantastic. It’s the same writers who did the music for Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid. The score is beautiful in the show.” The cast and crew are comprised of 104 Cornerstone students and this is the biggest production that the K-12 school has ever done. “We have students from Grade 2 all the way to Grade 12 in the show,” Johnson said. “We even have one of our alumni coming back to play a key role in the show, Liam McPaul. We’re thrilled to have him back. He played the beast when Cornerstone produced Beauty and the Beast a number of years ago.” McPaul is 23 and Johnson felt having an adult cast member made sense given the material. “We don’t normally do that, but we had one role where we felt it would be important to bring an adult in to show the importance of the story,” Johnson said. “It’s a real David-versus-Goliath-type story because these kids are taking on big business to get better working conditions and things like that.”

Moose Jaw Community Players presents:

The Moose Jaw Community Players (MJCP) is inviting the community to their annual Dinner Theatre where they will be performing the comedy, Gladys in Wonderland by Rosemary Frisino Toohey. The annual Dinner Theatre will see two nights of performance at the Cosmo Senior Center located at 235 3rd Ave NE on November 23-24. Doors will open at 6pm, followed by dinner and theatre. About Gladys in Wonderland: 87-year-old Gladys’ days of munching donuts and scouring the obituaries seem numbered when Death himself comes knocking on her door one morning.

It will be a great production with lots of laughter.” Crystal Milburn, who is playing Gladys, says the community can look forward to a ‘high-quality’ production. Over the years, the MJCP has won several awards for Moose Jaw. “Last year, we brought home four awards from Theatre Fest: two for performance, one for set and one for best production. So, when people come to our dinner theatre, they are getting a high-quality performance.” Tickets for the Dinner Theatre are $45 each which includes dinner and the show. There will also be a cash bar. You can get tickets at the Cosmo Senior Center 306-692-6072.

Local family creating ministry to help rebuild Rwanda Matthew Gourlie

Cherrie and Peter Jacques went to Rwanda for three weeks hoping to devote some time and energy to help the country rebuild. When they returned home to Moose Jaw, they felt that there was so much more that they could do in a country that is seeing so much need. With that, the couple and their three youngest children have created the Victory for Rwanda mission and plan to return to the African nation for an extended period of time. “My husband and I went to visit Rwanda in May for three weeks and we came back and talked to some friends, talked to our church and we talked with lots of people Cherrie and Peter Jacques went to Rwanda in May and are looking to establish in Rwanda after we got back.

Those were the two areas they see as most desperate for their country.” The Jacques’ house is on the market and once it sells they will begin the process of making the move. They plan to work with a village just southwest of the capital city of Kigali, in the Southern province. As members of the city’s Victory Church, the name of their mission was a natural fit. Their ministry has a logo designed by their 13-year-old son. They have created a ‘Victory for Rwanda’ facebook page to keep people informed of the work they are doing. To support them, a run, ride, walk fundraiser was held recently and there was a bake sale at Victory Church the same day. They are always looking for funding, but Jacques said just as crucial as that, they are also looking for partners. “We need people that have the same heart that want to come along with us,” Jacques said. “Maybe they can’t come to Rwanda, but they can add their skills, or maybe finances, or maybe they could come for a term and teach English, for example. There are so many things that we’re going to need.”

University hearing study seeks participants.

Peacock Jazz Band Fundraising and Performing Moose Jaw is used to hosting school bands during the month of May for the annual Moose Jaw Band and Choral Festival, but this year Peacock Jazz Band has taken on performing at the Vic Lewis Festival in Canmore, AB in early November. “It is really difficult to get the band ready to play this early in the year” says Cameron Church director of the band. “Often in jazz band students are not only exploring music in a new style, but often are playing a second instrument, dealing with the intricacies that come with that. Students are challenged to not just read the music, but also create their own as they improvise in solo sections. A big band requires fewer people on a part which helps each student to gain greater independence and confidence in their own playing abilities, but that also increases the pressure to have your own part learned.” The band is comprised of 15 students in grade 9-12 in the music program. Through the last few years the band has had a chance to perform with Kelly Jefferson, RCAF Jet Stream and will perform this year with the Saskatoon Jazz Orchestra at the Mae Wilson Theatre. “A festival opportunity like Vic Lewis is unique for our students because they will have not just a performance opportunity and full band clinic, but they will have instrument specific clinicians working alongside of them on top of that. We also get to hear a couple of concerts featuring the clinicians at the festival. You never know what experience or musical sound will inspire a student.” Students have been fundraising through bottle drives, pizza sales and other fundraisers. If you would like to hear the band perform, they will be featured on a December 14th concert at the Mae Wilson Theatre along with the Saskatoon Jazz Orchestra. Tickets for that event can be purchased through the Mae Wilson box office.

Connect Hearing, with hearing researcher Professor Kathy Pichora-Fuller at the University of Toronto, seeks participants who are over 50 years of age and have never worn hearing aids for a hearing study investigating factors that can influence better hearing. All participants will have a hearing test provided at no charge and if appropriate, the clinician may discuss hearing rehabilitation options including hearing aids. Qualifying participants may also receive a demo of the latest hearing technology. The data collected from this study will be used to further our understanding of hearing loss and improve life-changing hearing healthcare across Canada. Why participate in the hearing study? Hearing problems typically result from damage to the ear and researchers have spent decades trying to understand the biology behind hearing loss. More importantly, researchers now realize the need to better understand how hearing

loss affects your everyday life*. In this new hearing study, Professor Pichora-Fuller and her team are trying to find out how people learn to live with hearing loss and how new solutions could help these people take action sooner and live life more fully. It is estimated that 46% of people aged 45 to 87 have some degree of hearing loss1, but most do not seek treatment right away. In fact, the average person with hearing loss will wait ten years before seeking help2. This is because at the beginning stages of hearing loss people often find they can “get by” without help, however as the problem worsens this becomes increasingly harder to do. For some people this loss of clarity is only a problem at noisy restaurants or in the car, but for others it makes listening a struggle throughout the entire day. By studying people who have difficulty hearing in noise or with television, we hope to identify key factors impacting these difficulties and further understand their influence on the treatment process.

If you are over 50 years of age and have never worn hearing aids, you can register to be a part of this new hearing study† by calling: 1.888.242.4892 or visiting connecthearing.ca/hearing-study.

Festival of Words Wine fundraiser will help bring authors to schools Matthew Gourlie

The Saskatchewan Festival of Words’ Writers In Schools program has been a big success. As they prepare to bring another Canadian author into local schools, the demand for the program is growing by leaps and bounds. To help the program continue to grow with the demand, the Saskatchewan Festival of Words will be hosting the Surprisingly Unexpected: A Wine, Culinary and Music Experience. Their third annual wine night fundraiser will be held on Friday, Nov. 16, starting at 7 p.m. at Saskatchewan Polytechnic. “This year we had about 30 schools contact us about participating in the program,” said Amanda Farnel, operations coordinator for the Saskatchewan Festival of Words. “That’s, by far, more than we had last year. So, it is a quickly-growing program. “We bring in a professional author into as many schools as possible in a week,” Farnel added. “We get the students encouraged about writing and reading. We do partnerships with the Holy Trinity Catholic School Division and the Prairie South School Division. This year we’re doing a partnership with a home-schooling group, which is exciting.”

Surprisingly Unexpected: A Wine, Culinary, and Music Experience Third Annual Wine Night Fundraiser with silent auction and raffle

Friday, November 16 7 - 10 PM At SaskPolytech All proceeds will help fund the Festival's Writers in Schools Program

Tickets are $60 and come with a $30 Charitable Tax Receipt Corporate Tables (Tables of 6) available for $330 Buy Tickets in person at the Festival of Words office (217 Main St. W) or visit the website: www.festivalofwords.com

Author Penny Draper from Victoria will be the author that comes into local schools this year. She has experience as an oral storyteller and has done a lot of work visiting classrooms. Draper writes largely for and about young people and tries to tell the “story behind the story,” during her book talks at schools to teach students more about the writing process

and what an author’s life is like. Draper will be making her school stops in the last week of November. “There are a lot of costs built in with bringing an author in,” Farnel explained. “We usually bring someone in from out of province. So, we have flights and costs for accommodations and then travel to all of these places.

This year we’re going to be heading down to Coronach and Shaunavon. It adds up.” The program could extend further afield in the province if they were able to bring in more funding and another author during the year. The Festival is hoping that their wine night fundraiser will help bring that goal closer to fruition. “We’ve been talking about wanting to try to have a second week going for a long time now because we have so much interest that we can’t fit all of the classes in that we would like to go to,” Farnel said. “Right now, we’re doing about 20 presentations during the week that we’re here and usually it’s about 2,000 kids a year that we reach.” This year’s wine night will feature a five-course meal with a wine pairing with each course. The Matt Kaip Jazz Duo will be the featured musical guests. The event will also feature a silent auction and a raffle. Tickets for the event are $60 and come with a $30 charitable tax receipt. Corporate tables of six are available for $330. Tickets are available at the Festival of Words office at the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre or online at www.festivalofwords.com.

What is really behind four province opposition to the federal carbon tax policy? Both sides have drawn a line in the sand on the carbon tax issue debate. Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe stands on one side vowing to fight this tax to the bitter end in the Supreme Court and in the court of public opinion in the next provincial election. On the other side of this line in the sand, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau vows to levy a carbon tax on the four provinces refusing to set their own tax or use a cap and trade system. The Trudeau tax offers families a rebate of carbon taxes based on their use. In Saskatchewan the average rebate is estimated at $596 a family, less than the $403 average amount the tax will cost a family. Premier Moe describes the rebate as a vote-buying gimmick. Moe had the opportunity to levy his own carbon tax and distribute the money as he sees fit. He could have given his political base — farmers — a better break than Trudeau offers. He could have cut corporate taxes to make business more competitive or assisted the oil industry that Moe and his MLAs say will become so uncompetitive. The Saskatchewan premier chose not to dish out funds from his own carbon tax. Why? Politics explains one reason for opposing the tax

instead of negotiating carbon tax credits for good farming practices or negotiating credit for SaskPower’s carbon capture technology. Ever since Confederation in 1867 provincial premiers have found tilting swords at the Ottawa bogeyman rewarding at election time. Scott Moe is no exception. The Saskatchewan Party has taken credit for the increased population and growth under its government. The party won’t want to take credit for the current economy headed for the crapper, or for signs that Saskatchewan residents are resuming the old trend to move to Alberta for work. Fighting an election on the carbon tax distracts voters from the real issues and boxes the carbon tax supporting NDP in a corner. At least that is the conventional thought among some observers. Perhaps the real reason for Moe’s battling the carbon tax runs deeper with philosophical differences. Right wing politicians and supporters believe any money made by an individual should stay with that person/corporation — minus the least possible amount of taxes. Centre/left politicians and supporters are more compassionate, believing everyone should pay their “fair

share” of taxes, whatever that means. They believe in using tax money to prop up key industries and to help those with lower incomes. The centre/left believes in regulations to prevent unacceptable excesses. The right wingers distrust government and regulations that inhibit their personal progress. The carbon tax will have the effect of redistributing income from large polluters and high-income individuals to less wealthy residents. Redistributing income from the earners to lower income families is a no-no in right wing policy. To just oppose redistributing income would make Moe and his team appear cold and callous; thus, their opposition to carbon tax masked by a court battle. From the numerous analyses Yours Truly has seen, the provincial court cases against this tax are unlikely to succeed — leaving four premiers with egg on their faces and the option of using the notwithstanding clause in the constitution. Use of the notwithstanding clause can last only five years and would threaten to break up Canada. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

Snowbirds team performs final show of the season By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

The Snowbirds aerial demonstration team performed the final air show of the 2018 season at home base 15 Wing Moose Jaw before an audience of family, friends, base personnel and invited guests. Gov.-Gen. Julie Payette was a guest while on her visit to Saskatchewan. Lt.-Col. Mike French, on his second Snowbirds posting, is the 431 Squadron commander, Flying approximately 30 different formations with precision almost wing-to-wing, the team of specially selected pilots and ground crew flew 32 shows across Canada with five in the United States and a special Battle of Britain commemoration show in Ottawa.

Smoke trails


Inducted to the long list of honorary Snowbirds this year was former bomber pilot 96-year-old Reg (Crash) Harrison. The induction at the show was a surprise. Harrison earned the nickname Crash from having survived four airplane crashes during dangerous missions in the Second World War. Nearly half the 120,000 airmen on these missions lost their lives. Of seven commanders in his squadron, two were killed and one was taken prisoner.

Giving Can Be a Win-Win Situation

by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor

The season of giving is right around the corner, and while giving is good, some of you may be doing it for selfish reasons without even knowing. Giving is good for others but did you know that by giving you are also helping yourself too? Most of us feel good when we give, but the good feeling isn’t necessarily short term. There are many positive health outcomes for the giver and research shows that giving may actually lead to a longer life as well. When we give, we feel happier. Serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin are some of the “feel good” hormones that rise in our brains when we give. These chemicals have the ability to not only make us feel good, but to also mediate our moods and make us feel bonded to one another. The stress relieving benefits of these alone are significant enough to improve our health, short and long term. Giving has been shown to have positive physical effects like reduced blood pressure and psychological effects such reduced depression, anxiety and increased

self-esteem. Giving can come in a variety of forms. Donating money, food and clothing are some of the more common ways of giving. If you cannot afford to donate time or household items, giving your time in the form of volunteerism is just as good. Sometimes just lending an ear to a friend in need can stimulate the positive effects of giving. While giving should be year-round, it really ramps up in the months leading up to Christmas. Apparently, there is an official day of giving, “GivingTuesday” (November 27th of this year). This “global movement for giving and volunteering” occurs after one of the most materialistic times of the year, Black Friday. Maybe it’s time to be selfish and start giving more. Find a cause, clean out the closet or just say yes to adding 2 dollars to your grocery bill at the checkout line. Giving does not have to break the bank, as even a little benevolence can go a long way to improving your own health.

Chills and thrills at Sukanen’s annual Carnivale Matthew Gourlie

There were plenty of chills at Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village & Museum on Saturday, Oct. 13. The goosebumps weren’t just from the freezing temperatures either. Sukanen hosted their annual haunted village tour -- Carnivale Grotesque -- a guided tour of the grounds at night that features 13 scares for guests. The event has been going on for more than 11 years and drew 384 guests this year. While that is a little lower than usual, organizers were pleased given the unseasonably below-zero weather that night. “It was a cold night, but well-attended,” said Frank Lloyd, one of the co-ordinators of the event from Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village & Museum. “The weather was our biggest issue, but other than that it was good. We had some good reviews.” The event took a group of 40-50 volunteers two or three weekends to set up and another weekend to tear down. The volunteers and organizers put a lot of pride into creating new scares every year to give their loyal attendees something new. “One of our known attributes... is that we change routes and the scares all of the time,” Lloyd said. “They’re like little vignettes, some mechanical, some are psychological, some are visual, some are sounds... this is just a good old-fashioned ‘boo!’ to make you jump.” Lloyd said there have been years where guests have been so scared they lost their keys or other things from their pockets as they jumped.

Farm dugout inspection equals assured supply By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express

The many farms depending on dugouts to water livestock should do regular inspections to make sure the water supply remains viable. Before winter sets in is a good time for inspection, according to water specialist Dan Benson of Alberta Agriculture and Forestry. Inspection needs to consider the land/area filling the dugout with water and the intake area with culvert gates. He suggests the area around the dugout be cleared of debris that can flow into the water and this area should be mowed to free it of weeds. Graded, grassed and mowed areas can cut down the turbidity and nutrients from going into water and improve quality for livestock.

Doing this deters muskrats from lurking around the dugout. Trees should be removed from the runway to reduce leaves from polluting water. Recommended distance for leaf-bearing trees is 165 feet, or 50 metres away. Water inlet gates require inspection to ensure adequate control of water flow. He said an aeration system introducing water to the stagnant dugout needs inspection, especially water lines. Year-round aeration with a diffuser at the bottom offers the best quality water. Make sure pumps are working Farmers wanting more information should call their local agrologist. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

Abdou trying to start a conversation about minor hockey in new book Matthew Gourlie

“What are we doing here?� This was the question Angie Abdou asked after driving three-and-a-half hours one way for her nine-year-old to play hockey. She asked it again when two grown men got into a firstfight at one of those Atom hockey games. It was the question that hung in the air as she and her husband Marty struggled through the most difficult year of their marriage, as the strains of their children’s hectic schedule took their toll. That question and a desire to find a better way are at the core of Abdou’s new book Home Ice: Reflections of a Reluctant Hockey Mom. The Moose Jaw-born author held a book launch at Mitsu Sweet Cafe on Monday, Oct. 22. “I feel like I’m just trying to start a conversation,� Abdou said. “People have noted that there is ambivalence and contradictions in the book because I’m still figuring things out. What I want is to immerse the reader in a compelling story, give them access to the research I’ve done, give them space to look at their own lives and all of us to say, ‘can we do a bit better for our kids?’ I think we can do a bit better for our kids.� In response, she wrote a book of creative non-fiction that resulted in a highly personal memoir, but also involved a lot of research into the state of minor hockey in Canada -- and elsewhere. “I felt like I wasn’t doing something right,� Abdou said. “I felt like this can’t be the way it’s supposed to be. I don’t know why we’re doing what we’re doing. I don’t know why we’re stretched so thin. I don’t know why we’re not as happy as we need to be. I don’t know why relationships are suffering so we can maintain this schedule that we have our kids on. “I wanted to do research about youth sports and hockey and weave it in and take a good close look at our life. Writing this memoir was a way of pressing ‘slow down’ on the life button and have a look at it as it was going by.� She knew asking questions and shaking up the established order -- especially in the hockey world -- wouldn’t make her popular. She was surprised when Jeff Turner, a board member with the Ontario Hockey Federation, asked to hear her perspective. She was not surprised when the first person yelled at her about her book. “He told me to shut up and that I didn’t know anything about the sport,� Abdou said. That man was one of her son’s coaches during that season. Abdou admitted that her first response was that maybe she didn’t know anything about the sport and maybe she wasn’t the right person to be advocating for change. “Then, I thought, my son has been in the sport for six years, I come from a family with a huge experience in sport; I spent a year researching the leading experts in the world on hockey culture. Surely, I have a right to have a voice in the conversation as much as anyone,� she said Still, in response to the backlash, Abdou contacted Turner before they were scheduled to meet. “I said ‘you know, maybe I’m not the person you want to talk to. I’m just a mom and I wrote this kind of personal, immersive memoir that women like to read. It’s probably not what you think it is, so you probably don’t want to talk to me and that’s OK,’� Abdou recalled. “That’s how badly I cowered in response to that ‘shut up’. (Turner) wrote back and said ‘no, you are a hockey parent who has thought deeply about this. You’ve actually gone and done the research. I’m absolutely interested in hearing your point of view. Of course, you have a right in the conversation.’� They spoke for 90 minutes and Abdou left the conversation optimistic. Turner said that change is so hard in hockey because hockey is so ingrained in the national consciousness and the rewards for the best players are so large. He said, “No one wants their kid to be the Guinea pig, because what if their kid is the ‘Great One’ and what if messing up the way things have always have been done messes up their chance to be the ‘Great One’? Abdou relayed. “But when a sport is in crisis that’s a time when you can change things and the declining enrollment is very alarming. He said things are going to have to be done differently.� Abdou appreciated the irony that no one in Fernie want-

-- HALF HALF GOES GOES TO TO YOUR YOUR CHARITY! CHARITY! Includes Steak Sandwich with Baked Potato or Caesar Salad

For More Details Call Amber: Angie Abdou launched her book Home Ice: Reflections of a Reluctant Hockey Mom during a writer’s talk at Mitsu Sweet Cafe on Monday, Oct. 22. ed to hear her ideas, but a board member for the regulatory body that oversees 250,000 hockey players on the other side of the country was all ears. Abdou’s son is in his second year of Pee Wee hockey. Her daughter does downhill ski racing in the winter and Abdou reported that skiing and swimming are just as expensive as hockey is. Though she added: “Where hockey gets expensive is when people think you have to go away to a tournament every weekend. Hotels are expensive, gas is expensive, restaurant meals are expensive.� She would like to see a greater emphasis on fitness and fun. She noted that in Scandinavia, there is no tier hockey until after puberty. She added that in Sweden, no players are cut from a team until they’re in their final year of high school. Still, Sweden manages to produce more NHL players per capita than any other country. Abdou understands elite athletics. Her parents were both athletes and her brother Justin was an Olympian. She said her parents were very supportive of the book, even though it was both personal and at times critical. “I kind of make my dad the villain for the first half, a little bit,� Abdou said. “He stands in as a representative for hardcore, elite sports. Which may or may not be accurate. Part way through the book I have an epiphany and see my own parenting through him and I change my mind... a lot.� Angie Abdou said that once she pulled back from being immersed in the hockey culture she started to see some things with a different perspective. Justin Abdou wrestled at the 2000 Sydney Games. Another member of that Olympic delegation, mountain biker Roland Green, had a son on the same team as Abdou’s son. “The two people who emerged as model sporting parents surprised me: my brother, Justin Abdou, and Roland Green,� Abdou said. “What I like about how they parent their athletes is that they just stand back and watch. They don’t get overly emotional. They don’t get mad when the child makes a mistake. They don’t get overly-excited when the child does something really exciting. They don’t push their kids. They seem to find it entertaining, but they don’t really care if their kids get to an elite level or not. That’s their children’s decision. “I think the reason that is, is one: they’ve had that sporting success, so they don’t have to live vicariously through their children; two: they know what it takes, so they know that no matter how badly they did want it for their kid, they can’t make their child do that. That has to come from inside the child; and three: having been there, do you even want that for your child? You know how being an athlete is a very unbalanced life in a lot of ways.� Home Ice: Reflections of a Reluctant Hockey Mom is Abdou’s seventh book.

Hall of Fame Induction an Honour for Former NHLer Smail Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

When Doug Smail was first breaking into the National Hockey League with the Winnipeg Jets during the 1980-81 season, hockey was in a very different place compared to what it was later in that decade and what we see today. Rough-and-tumble fight-filled intimidating hockey was the order of the day. So when the Moose Jaw product first took to the ice – 5-foot-9 and 175 pounds – well, things were as tough as could be expected. But the times were changing. The game evolved suddenly and rapidly and Smail’s style of play fit right in. The end result was a 13-year NHL career – 11 of those seasons with the Winnipeg Jets – that ended with 210 goals and 459 points in 845 games. So it came as little surprise when it was announced that Smail was one of six inductees into the Moose Jaw and District Sports Hall of Fame for 2018. He was enshrined on the Wall of Fame – located on the Mosaic Place second floor concourse – during their annual induction banquet on Oct. 20. “It’s a tremendous honour; it’s something I never really thought about or

considered but I’m very, very privileged,” Smail said prior to the event. “I want to thank all the people who were responsible for that and there are so many people who I think deserve to be on this wall in my opinion. So, this is a terribly big honour.”

“I was a kid from the prairies; ...It was close to my family and it was on the prairies, so I wanted to play there.” - Former NHL player Doug Smail

McDonald's makes huge donation to minor hockey New jerseys, socks donated to teams in Atom division Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

Youngsters just getting into the sport of hockey in Moose Jaw will have a chance to take-to-the-ice, wearing brand new uniforms, thanks to Doug and Marilyn Dooley and their McDonald's restaurants in the city.

The local entrepreneurs worked alongside McDonald's AtoMc program to purchase full sets of jerseys for eight teams in the Atom division and two girls' minor hockey teams for the coming season, an ongoing program that has seen new jerseys and socks come Moose Jaw Minor Hockey Association’s (MJMHA) way the last six years.

a night like this. It's a real win-win for minor hockey and the hockey clubs.” An interesting aspect of the donation is that youngsters get to keep their jerseys at the end of the season, with some going so far as to have their teammates sign the sweaters as a life-long keepsake. “We would love to see this continue on in the future,” Flanagan said. “Without the support and sponsorship of Doug and Marylin, minor hockey would have to spend a lot more buying jerseys and things like that, so this is awesome.”

“This is the first time we're hosting an event like this; we had the idea this summer and put the pieces together and felt it would be great to let the kids have some fun and show what Doug and Marilyn do for our association.” said Chris Flanagan, Atom director for Moose Jaw Minor Hockey. “They've been very supportive of minor hockey and the kids themselves over the year, so we're really excited for the new season.” For Dooley, it's all about just having a chance to do his part for minor hockey in the city. “The community has been really good to me and that's why I want to give back to the community,” Dooley said, prior to the festivities on Oct. 24. “This is really fun and we're really proud to be able to have a chance to donate the jerseys and have

The jersey donation isn't a one-time deal, either – in addition to making a similar donation for the last six years, Dooley and McDonald's are also the major sponsor of the annual Moose Jaw Atom tournament, set to take place this year at the beginning of January, featuring 26 teams from all over the province. “We're excited about that, too,” Dooley said. “It's always a fun weekend and it brings a lot of people into Moose Jaw and helps out the hotels and things like that, and we're hoping for more of the same this year.”

Yorkton wins high school football league championship Raiders down Central to claim second-straight title Randy Palmer- Moose Jaw Express

As the Moose Jaw High School Football League season progressed, there was a sense of inevitability that the Yorkton Raiders might have a repeat as to being league champion. Their buzzsaw offence, led by standout quarterback Jordan Rusnak, racked up point totals unheard of in previous seasons and did so with the kind of offensive balance that made them especially difficult to defend. When it came to the league championship final on Saturday at Gutheridge Field, there was a sense of a coronation more than a competition. Make no mistake, the Central Cyclones came to play, and at halftime had things looking like they might be interesting. But two quick-strike touchdowns in the third quarter put the writing on the wall and in then end, Yorkton came away with the 46-17 win and their second-straight MJHSFL championship. “It feels unreal, even better than last year, because we’ve been rivals all year and then we come into their hometown and get a pretty decisive win, especially in the second half,” Rusnak said. “It feels pretty good.” Rusnak finished the game with touchdown runs of 22 yards, 30 yards and 10 yards as part of his 24 carries for 100 yards total. He was also 7-for-10 passing for 157 yards, including a 57-yard TD pass to Carson Sveinbjornson only 38 seconds into the third quarter and a seven-yard major to Tyler Harasymuk two minutes later. Harasymuk also had Yorkton’s momentum-building 15-yard touchdown run with 1:22 left before half.

The Yorkton Raiders celebrate with the Moose Jaw High School Football League championship trophy. For Rusnak, it was as impressive performance. “It was nice to have a game like that, but I have to give credit to my teammates, too, the o-line gave me holes to run through or time to get passes off to my teammates and that’s always huge,” he said. On the other side of the field, Cyclones quarterback Ethan Johnson did everything he could to fight through the windy conditions and keep his team in the game. He ended up 26-for-39 passing for 248 yards, including a 28yard pass to Riley Seaborn with 7:21 remaining in the third quarter that saw Central close the score to 11-8 at that point in the game. “I’m really proud of all my teammates, I thought we

played like champions all game,” Johnson said. “We were (right in it) at halftime and these guys haven’t had a close game all year, so I was really proud of what we did today. “This is the best team I’ve ever played with by far; it’s the most fun I’ve had playing this sport in my entire life and I’m going to miss it so much.” Central coach Colin Belsher echoed the pride in his players for keeping things close in the early going. “It was like the first couple rounds of a boxing match, it was going both ways and we were there.,” he said. “I don’t know if we ran out gas, but Yorkton started making the plays and we weren’t making the plays... I asked them to leave it all on the line and they did that and we just fell short on the scoreboard.” The Raiders will now face Saskatoon city champion Bishop Mahoney in the provincial 3A semi-final Nov. 3 in Yorkton.

Central wins silver at boys, girls soccer provincials

Moose Jaw Express Staff The Central Cyclones came away with a pair of silver medals from the Saskatchewan High School Athletics Association boys and girls provincial soccer championships this past weekend. At the boys’ tournament in North Battleford, the Cyclones opened with a 6-2 win over See See Wa Hum before defeating Regina Riffel 3-2 in the provincial semifinal. It was another close game in the championship contest, with Yorkton Sacred Heart edging the Cyclones 3-2. The Peacock Tornadoes were also in action and fell 5-1 to Sacred Heart in their opener and 5-3 to Poundmaker/Little Pine in the consolation semifinal. Things went similarly well for Central at the girls’ championship in Regina as they won their first game 2-1 over Regina Luther and advanced to the final with a 1-0 victory over Moose Jaw league rival Vanier. The title game saw Saskatoon Marion Graham take a 6-0 win, capping a run where they scored at least six goals every game. The Vanier Spirits won their first game 6-0 over Humboldt and lost in the bronze medal game 2-0 to Warman.

Scotties Tournament of Heart returning to Moose Jaw Mosaic Place to host 2020 women’s national curling championship Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

The Scotties Tournament of Hearts is coming back to Moose Jaw Only four years after last hosting the national women’s curling championship in 2015, the Canadian Curling Association announced on Thursday, Oct. 25th that the 2020 edition of the tournament will be taking place at Mosaic Place, running Feb. 14 to 23. “This is so exciting, I could hardly sleep last night waiting to share the news with everyone,” said CurlSask executive director Ashley Howard. “I know that feeling will go across the province to many other athletes, ‘just how cool would that be to be the home team for Team Saskatchewan at a Scotties in 2020’. It’s going to be pretty neat for those four girls in 2020.” A host of curling dignitaries from throughout the country were on hand for the announcement at the Great Western Lounge in Mosaic Place on Thursday morning, and the sense of excitement was palpable. “I’ve known for about a month since (Curling Canada CEO) Katherine (Henderson) called me and it’s been a whirlwind, with so much to do,” said bid co-chairperson Kevin deDelley, who worked alongside Joe Gunnis in putting the successful package together. “We’re looking forward to it, we’re going to have a great team of volunteers here; we’ve touched base with a lot of them already and they’re quite willing. This is going to be great for our city.” There’s little question the success of the Scotties in 2015 played a large part in the quick turnaround and return of the tournament. That event drew over 70,000 fans and proved to be a universal money-maker, bringing in an estimated $6 million dollars to the community. “You go where you know it’s going to work,” said Resby Coutts, past chairman of board of governors of Curling Canada. “And while there are always more remarkable bids, you have to choose between very good bids and more and more

Gene Makowsky, Saskatchewan Minister of Sport, offers congratulations to the City of Moose Jaw during the 2020 Scotties Tournament of Hearts announcement. we’re focusing on the business model and proven by previous success; it’s just the right thing to do.” Mosaic Place is also a major reason. Having the curling facility and lounge directly attached to the hockey arena carries the added benefit of keeping the main curling and, um, ‘ancillary’ activities all centralized under one roof. “It’s just such a great asset,” Coutts said. “The opportunity to be indoors, you have this wonderful curling facility that has to be the envy of communities across the country; this lounge we’re in right now is attached to a spectacular arena... not to have to go outside even if you’re going to the hospitality facility (Heartstop Lounge). Other communities do a great job with a five-minute bus ride. But when you don’t have to go outside, you might have an inclination to say and completely enjoy the event.” All in all, Moose Jaw itself – the city as a whole – was the final selling point. “I think what set Moose Jaw apart was the great facility, first of all, and the people here and the support of the people behind it shows that it can be really successful, based on past history,” Howard said. “Moose Jaw did everything right. They had a memorable facility, great support from the community and sponsors and

Volunteers needed If the 2020 Scotties Tournament of Hearts is going to succeed in Moose Jaw once again, a small army of volunteers is going to be needed. Around 400 people worked the event in 2015, a number that was almost spot-on to what Curling Canada deemed necessary to host the tournament properly. “I think one of the many things that are appealing about many cities of this size,” said Resby Coutts, past chairman of board of governors of Curling Canada, “is that it becomes, for that short period of time, the biggest game in town; the focus of the entire community. Folks who maybe aren’t regular curlers, maybe not even particularly interested in the sport, become involved in it. The business community becomes involved. People want to help and they do anything they can to be a part of it.” And not just from the host city, either. “That last time, we had people from Hamilton, from Salmon Arm, B.C., Kingston, Calgary,” Moose Jaw bid co-chairperson Kevin deDelley said. “The volunteers come to support us and I’m sure it’ll be the same this time around.” Even before the official announcement had been made, people were contacting bid committee members and the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre in order to offer their services. “We’re already getting volunteers, people from last time who have knowledge of what they need to do,” deDelley said. “They’ve come to me, I haven’t had to go to them. So we’ll work through it and I’m sure it’ll be as good as it has been in the past.” Anyone looking to volunteer or for more information can contact the Curling Centre at 306-624-2040.

really put on a show for our athletes and our fans.” Moose Jaw deputy mayor Dawn Luhning was part of the unanimous city council decision to support the project when it first came forward on June 25, but even she was surprised to see things work out so well so fast. “We knew it had to be put together pretty quickly, which is why we met quickly to discuss it, but when I saw the announce-

ment I was like ‘oh, it’s already happening’ and I’m just excited to see that we got it for 2020,” Luhning said. “We did it in 2015 and it was received very well, we had lots of people come through here and enjoy the city and I’m thinking that set us apart.” The financial benefits of hosting a Scotties can be exceptional for a community – the estimated $6 million brought in to Moose Jaw in 2015 could swell to $12 million this time around. “Curling is a huge sport all over the country and when you get the Scotties, you see all those people coming to Moose Jaw,” Luhning said. “So, our hotels and restaurants are going to benefit, obviously, our stores and local retail shops. It’s a huge economic spinoff.” And it’s an event where planning has already started, even though it’s well over a year away. “It’s just an amazing event to be involved in and when you see the effort people put into it, we have our work cut out for us... but everyone has pitched in because they know how great and how important this event is going to be,” DeDelley said.

Warriors snap mini-skid with huge comeback

Tribe score three in third to stun Tigers; lose close contests to P.A., Everett Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Warriors have found a way to make things interesting through the first month of the season – it’s never a good idea to count them out of a game no matter who their opponent might be. They showed that during Saturday’s game against the Tigers in Medicine Hat, as they scored three goals in the third period – including the game-tying goal from Brayden Tracey with 19 seconds remaining in regulation – to overcome a 3-0 deficit and go on to win 4-3 in a shootout. That win came on the heels of a 2-1 overtime loss to the Everett Silvertips on Friday at Mosaic Place and a 4-2 loss at home to the Prince Albert Raiders Wednesday. The Warriors are now 6-4-3 on the season and sit in eighth place in the Eastern Conference, two points back of Brandon in sixth. Warriors 4, Tigers 3 Tristin Langan scored the lone goal of the shootout to cap the impressive comeback in Medicine Hat. Tate Popple and Josh Brook also

Prince Albert 4, Warriors 2 The top team in the Canadian Hockey League once again faced a severe test from the Warriors, as Langan’s power play goal 1:43 into the third saw Moose Jaw trailing by one much of the final frame before WHL leading scorer Brett Leason scored an empty netter with 1:27 remaining. Keenan Taphorn scored his first goal as a Warrior in the second period. Adam Evanoff turned aside 33 shots in the loss. The Warriors are back in action when they host Saskatoon on Friday, Nov. 2 and Kootenay on Saturday, Nov. 3. Both games at 7 p.m. at Mosaic Place.

Warriors Hall of Famer Lyle Helland passes away The Moose Jaw Warriors said goodbye to one of their key builders prior to Friday’s contest with the Everett Silvertips. Lyle Helland, a member of the Warriors and Legends Hall Fame, passed away earlier in the week after a short illness. He was 84. Helland’s dedication to the Tribe was crucial to their existence – his work included physically transporting team infrastructure during the move from Winnipeg in 1954, financial support that included mortgaging his home for the team, years of time on the board of directors and a season-ticket holder for more than 30 years. He was also a prominent member of the Moose Jaw fastball community, acting as caretaker at Memorial Field for decades. He was inducted into the Sports Hall of Fame alongside Lyle Odelein and Darryl Laplante in 2013. The Warriors held a special pre-game on-ice tribute to Helland on Friday night, honouring him for his dedication to the team and community over the years.

Generals drop pair of games in league action Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Generals have a great work ethic but aren’t getting the kind of results they were hoping for. Instead of commanding wins, the team has found themselves enduring some bad and unusual luck at the most inconvenient times, resulting in a win-loss record a bit less impressive than they were hoping for at this point in the season. Take Sunday’s contest against the Notre Dame Hounds for example: the Generals outshot Notre Dame 40-35 and used their speed and skill to create plenty of chances. In doing so they drew a slew of penalties. But instead of making the Hounds pay for their actions, Moose Jaw ended up going a stunning 0-for-8 on the power play and eventually lost 4-2 with an empty net goal. That defeat came on the heels of a 4-3 overtime loss on Friday in Swift Current where the team found themselves exceptionally shorthanded due to injury and illness, only to lose forward Ben Wourms-Rowe to a check-from-behind penalty early and having to move defenceman Jake Grasdal up as a forward to take his place. So even though the Generals aren’t where they’d like to be record-wise – they sat at 6-5-0-1 as of Oct. 28 – the potential for good things is still there. “I was really, really happy with the effort and not so much

Moose Jaw Generals’ Walter Somers looks to lay the body on a Notre Dame Hounds attacker during action Sunday afternoon. the outcome,” Generals coach Ray Wareham said after the Notre Dame loss. “I thought we did a lot of encouraging things today and positioning-wise we were starting

to simplify our game a bit. There were lots of positives; we should let the loss hurt and sting a bit, but if we keep playing like that and staying positive we’ll be fine.” Against Notre Dame, Cody Davis and Evan Sare each had a goal and an assist as the Generals trailed 1-0 and 3-1 by period. Reece Hodson made 32 saves. In Swift Current against the Legionnaires, the Generals led 2-1 through two periods on goals from Sare and Davis. Jake Palmer added a power play marker midway through the third to put Moose Jaw up 3-2, but the Legionnaires tied the game with 4:01 remaining. There the score remained until Boston Bird scored the overtime winner 2:23 in. “Our message has to be ‘we’ve gotta work; we’ve gotta work’ and that’s what the kids have been doing,” Wareham said. “But even Friday night in Swift Current, we lost a tough one in overtime but we were right there even though we were shorthanded. If can if we can continue to keep working like that we’ll be just fine.” The Generals are back in action Oct. 31 when they travel to Saskatoon to face the Blazers. Next home action is Nov. 3 at Mosaic Place against the Hounds and Nov. 4 at home against the Blazers. Both weekend games are 1:30 p.m.

National / International News ENVIRONMENT

Five top questions about federal carbon tax and how it affects you OTTAWA _ Five things you need to know about how the national price on carbon affects you. 1. What provinces are affected? Only people living in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and New Brunswick will be subject to the federal carbon tax and resultant rebate system. People who live in Yukon and Nunavut will also be subjected to the federal tax but the revenue from it will go to the territorial governments, which asked to use the federal program and will thus be allowed to decide how to spend it. 2. How much am I going to pay in a carbon tax? The amount you pay depends on how much energy you use. Someone who has an electric furnace in a province where power is generated by coal will have higher carbon taxes than someone who uses a natural gas furnace or someone who has an electric furnace in a province where most power is generated by hydro dams. The amount will also depend on how much businesses pass on to consum-

ers to offset their extra costs for transporting goods and powering their businesses. If you live in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Yukon or Nunavut, as of April 1, 2019, fossil fuels consumed for vehicles, home heating, and electricity will be assessed a $20 charge for every tonne of emissions they are known to emit. That will add about 4.42 cents to every litre of gasoline purchased, or almost $1.77 to fill a 40-litre tank. A cubic metre of natural gas will cost 3.91 cents more, or about $8 more per month for the average household. Ottawa estimates that the annual carbon tax cost to families in Ontario in 2019 will be $244, in Manitoba, $232, in New Brunswick $202 and in Saskatchewan $403. 3. How much will my rebate be? The rebate depends on the province you live in and the size of your family. It does not depend on your income. Only residents in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and New Brunswick will receive federal rebates. Residents in oth-

er provinces, which have instituted their own carbon pricing plans, will be compensated according to the policies of their provincial government. The average payments will be $248 in New Brunswick, $300 in Ontario, $336 in Manitoba and $598 in Saskatchewan. 4. How much is Ottawa making off the carbon tax? The government has promised ``every penny’’ raised by the carbon tax will be returned to individuals and businesses in the province where the revenue was collected. The Climate Action Initiative intends to return 90 per cent of the revenues raised to individuals via rebates. The other 10 per cent will be returned to small and medium-sized businesses, schools, hospitals, universities and other such organizations to offset costs that cannot be passed on to individuals. Ottawa intends to audit and publicly report on the revenues raised and rebates paid each year. In 2019-20, officials said the carbon levy is expected to raise $1.77 billion in On-

tario, $90 million in New Brunswick, $190 million in Manitoba and $310 million in Saskatchewan. 5. What about big industrial emitters? Are they paying anything? In provinces using the federal carbon system, any company that emits more than 50,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases per year will pay the carbon tax on a portion of those emissions. The amount they’ll pay varies by industry, with the government setting a cap of 80-90 per cent of the average emissions in each sector. The tax will apply to emissions above the cap. There will be some opportunity for companies whose emissions are below the cap to sell credits to those above the cap. Companies have to start tracking and reporting their emissions on Jan. 1, but the actual payments won’t be assessed until mid-2020, once those reports are in and the trading of credits is completed. © 2018 The Canadian Press


Angelina Jolie seeks support for Venezuelan refugees LIMA, Peru _ Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie says the exodus of millions of Venezuelans from their country has led to a ``shocking’’ migrant crisis in South America that was ``predictable and preventable.’’ Jolie is ending a three-day visit to Peru a special envoy for the United Nations refugee agency. During her visit Jolie met Venezuelan refugees who live at a shelter in the capital city and also went to a border crossing in the north of the country. On Tuesday, Jolie met with Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra to discuss po-



Indoor and outdoor advertising, vehicle graphics, banners, posters and displays, labels, decals and apparel heat transfers.


tential solutions to the migrant crisis and ways of securing international support. More than 1.9 million people have left Venezuela since 2015 and some 400,000 have moved to Peru. The UNHCR has described it as the largest population movement in Latin America’s recent history. © 2018 The Canadian Press

On the Front Porch

by Wanda Smith

Hockey Fan I came by it honestly... being the hockey fan I am. My dad was a big “Hockey Night in Canada” supporter; sitting comfortably with a container of yogurt and a big spoon, he’d settle in for the night. The Oilers were the team to beat in those days. I spent many hours talking hockey with my dad and analyzing the game until I had to head to bed. Since my bedroom was just off of the living room, I’d be lulled to sleep with the rise and fall of the broadcaster’s voice. The Saturday night tradition soon turned into a father/ daughter team at the rink many Friday nights or Saturdays. Although my dad didn’t have the chance to grow up playing hockey, he joined the senior team in our home town. He also did a significant amount of officiating each winter; sometimes upwards of sixty games. I thoroughly enjoyed going to watch hockey so it was easy to move into manning the penalty box/time keeping. We had a good thing going. Since I knew my dad and he knew me, we were able to communicate well and could work efficiently together as officials. About the time I was in my mid-teens, our family became friends with one of the Moose Jaw Warriors’ forwards and his family. We spent many hours in the Crushed Can, the land now home to a brand new mall. The late 80’s, early 90’s boasted some strong WHL hockey and I enjoyed keeping scrapbooks and stats, listening to Bryn Griffiths and Rob Carney as they kept us connected through the radio waves. I even recorded games on cassettes on my ghetto blaster! I was known around my school as being a huge Warrior fan. Marriage to a non-sports fan and motherhood took me away from the sports scene; I became involved in doing what was of interest to Hubby and our sweet peas. However, recently I’ve had opportunity to see a few games in person and periodically listen to the radio to stay up to date with how the boys are doing. Thankfully, Big Sweet Pea has developed a love of the game, too so we catch a few games together from time to time. I like the game for many reasons; in fact, in the past, I would’ve said that I loved the game for many reasons. But truly, we are to only love God and love people (ourselves included). “...’you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Luke 10:27) It is interesting how many times “love” has become a part of our everyday language... I love coffee. I love summer. I love hockey. I love... (fill in the blanks). We’ve cheapened love and use the term loosely without giving it any thought. Love is not a term to be thrown around lightly. Love is an act of one’s will, a choice if you will, to love without conditions... to love without expectations... to selflessly love (not selfishly love)... to love when our child, spouse, neighbor or stranger is unlovely towards us or others. No matter how much we greatly admire or value something, nothing should be more valuable to us than God or people. “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” (1 Peter 4:8) Besides giving me an appreciation for hockey, Dad also taught me the importance of loving God and people. Watch your words and share the love. Let love be your motivation this week.

June 6th, 1919 — October 17th, 2018

Esther Elenora Wilhelmina Brodie (née Henning) of Moose Jaw and formerly of Radville and Weyburn, SK peacefully passed away on Wednesday, October 17th, 2018 at Extendicare, with family by her side. The last surviving child of Swedish pioneer parents, Ingrid and Charlie Henning, Esther was born and grew up on the family farm south of Cedoux, SK and attended Cedoux School. Life on the farm, plus living her informative years during the Depression, shaped the woman, wife, and mother she became. A strong work ethic, common sense, frugality, and creativity tempered by ambition and “inventiveness” helped Esther solve life’s obstacles in her 99 years. After completing her Grade 12, Esther worked near Weyburn and Brooking. Here, she met and married Neil Brodie of Brooking/Radville in 1941; together, they formed a loving and successful life and farming partnership in the Abbott district. Ellen and Brenda completed the family. Unable to pursue her dream of becoming a teacher, Esther succeeded in her dreams of having her daughters attend university and graduate with degrees in Nursing and Education. Neil and Esther retired from farming to Weyburn in 1969. After Neil’s death, Esther lived independently in her own home until 2014 when she moved to Moose Jaw (The Bentley) to be closer to Brenda. Esther loved to be active: physically, mentally, and creatively. Esther danced (square, ballroom, round, pattern), gardened, landscaped her lawn and yard, shovelled and blew snow into her early 90’s. A self-taught seamstress, she designed and sewed her own and her daughters’ wardrobes. She also knit, crocheted, did needlepoint/petit point, quilted, made rugs, played cards and darts, and dabbled in oil painting. Esther was involved in the community through volunteer work and membership in the Weyburn Hospital Auxiliary, UCW (Radville and Weyburn), Rebekah Lodge, and Order of Eastern Star. Predeceased by her husband Neil (1973); her parents, Charlie (Ingrid) Henning; her siblings: Alma (Ed) Olson, Anna (Louis) Gartz, Hilda (Henry) Tranberg, Mary (in infancy), Adolphe Henning, Charlie (Holly) Henning, Doris (Vern) Jackson; in-laws, Dan (Martha) Brodie and Donna (Bruce) Cameron; and niece, Doris (Ron) Jacobson; Esther is survived by daughters, Ellen (Denis) Atkinson and Brenda Brodie; grandchildren, Kyla Atkinson and Eric (Grace) Atkinson; as well as many nieces and nephews and their families. The family thanks the medical team of Dr. Ramadan and nurses at Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital for their kind and loving care during Esther’s time there. Also a warm and grateful thanks to the staff at Extendicare who made her comfortable during her last days. Cremation has taken place and interment of her cremains at Green Acres Memorial Gardens, Weyburn will be held on Saturday, November 3rd, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation in Esther’s name may be made to Alzheimer Association of Saskatchewan, 2550 12th Avenue, Regina SK S4P 3X1 or Weyburn and District Hospital Foundation, Box 1416, Weyburn, SK S4H 3J9. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. James Murdock, Funeral Director 306-693-4550 www.moosejawfuneralhome.com

Marion Elizabeth Tolley (nee Affleck) passed away peacefully at Providence Place on the morning of Friday, October 19, 2018. She enjoyed a remarkable life for 95 years. Marion was born in Regina on June 16, 1923 to Lillie Campbell Affleck (nee Ferguson) and Allan Alexander Affleck. Her parents were Scottish immigrants who met in Nova Scotia, married, and moved west to farm near Regina. The Great Depression forced the Afflecks to move to Moose Jaw where Marion’s father, Allan, found employment with the Co-op Creamery as a milkman; a move that was to have a lifelong impact on Marion. Marion was predeceased by her parents, her siblings and their spouses: older brother Alan (Muriel), and younger sisters, Gladys (James Morton) and Elsie (Phillip Rayner). Marion attended Alexandra Elementary School and graduated from Central Collegiate in 1941. Although she had aspirations to be a scientist or politician, the circumstances of WWII led her to attend Davidson Business College where she trained to work as a stenographer. Her skill set qualified her to be a Secretary and Treasurer for many community organizations over the coming years and assisted her in working for Land Titles once all the children were grown. Marion met her husband, George (Tony) Tolley, in her family home as they hosted Royal Air Force soldiers, posted to the NATO Flight Training Centre in Moose Jaw, for Sunday dinners during the war. Tony and Marion fell in love and eloped to be married in Regina on January 23, 1943. Tony passed away in 2003. Marion and Tony raised seven children in Moose Jaw. Their children and their descendants are left to celebrate her life: children Anthony “Tony Jr.” (Leslie), Nancy (Allen), Clive (Muriel), Marjory (Kelly), Lindsay (Dawn), Allan (Marilou), Roger (Barb), grandchildren Angela (Don) and Julie (Mike), Iden (Victoria), Afton (Jonathan), Natasha (Naheed), Nigel, Justyce, Nika, Jorja; Jaedyn, Alayna, great-grandchildren Jacob, Mica, as well as numerous other family members in Canada and in the U.K. In addition to raising her own seven children, “Mrs. Tolley” was motherly to many children in the neighbourhood. She was often ahead of the curve on so many things. For that we are so grateful. She fought racism, and promoted the preservation of heritage buildings. Marion practiced recycling and reusing long before the community bins were provided. She believed in shopping locally at the Moose Jaw Co-op and the smaller family operated stores. Among Marion’s many accomplishments was being elected to Moose Jaw City Council in 1979 where she worked tirelessly to have Heritage Canada set up a Moose Jaw Main Street Heritage Program. She stood in front of a bulldozer and tried to prevent the demolition of Victoria School, the first school in the North West Territories. In 2014 Marion was presented with the Festival of Words Honours Award. We are so proud that her plaque is displayed at the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre. Mum had great hair and received many compliments up until the end of her life. The Tolley family would like to thank all of the wonderful hairdressers that helped to maintain Marion’s crowning glory through the years. Marion maintained her dignity to the end, always honest, acting with integrity, showing kindness and respect for others, being a good neighbour and sharing a strong sense of community. Mum walked to every community event she could get to; if you wanted to know what was going on in Moose Jaw, “just ask Marion”. Thank you to all that gave her a ride home from these events. The family would also like to thank the caring staff at Providence Place, the medical teams at the Dr. FH Wigmore Regional Hospital and Drs. AJ & GB Van Heerden for their respectful and kind care of our mother. A Celebration of Marion’s Life will be held Saturday, October 27 at 1:30PM at St. Andrews United Church, 60 Athabasca St. E., Moose Jaw. Rev. Jim Tenford will officiate. A tea will follow in the St. Andrews Social Hall. As Marion was a Scot, a Canadian, a Moose Javian and a Saskatchewanian, please wear your tartan or maple leaf, moose shirt or provincial emblem as a show of support for Marion and her family. Interment will take place at a later date so please come prepared to spend the afternoon visiting and reminiscing with the family at St. Andrews. Those so wishing may make a donation in Marion’s name to the Moose Jaw Health Foundation c/o Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital, 55 Diefenbaker Dr., Moose Jaw, SK S6J 0C2 or a Charity of one’s choice. Flowers are gratefully declined. In living memory of Marion, a memorial planting will be made by Jones- Parkview Funeral Services. Please sign the memorial register at website: www.wjjonesandson. com (Obituaries). Dayna Chamberlain - Funeral Director


CHASE, William “Bill” Everett With great sadness we announce the passing of William “Bill” Everett Chase on Friday, October 19th, 2018 at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital in Moose Jaw, SK due to complications after a brief illness. He was predeceased by his father, Alvin “Acel”; mother, Alma; son, Darren; siblings: Ilene, Florence, Orin “Bud”, and Frances; half-siblings: Evelyn, Harland, and Wilfred; and step-daughter-inlaw, Barb. Bill will be forever missed by his loving wife of 30 years, Marlene; children: Kevyn (Zoe), Heather (Daniel) and (Cheryl); step-children, Jim and Karen (Ken); siblings, Gladys and Ernie (Susan); grandchildren: Jean-Paul (Renée), Alyssa (Craig), Alexis (Jeff), and Thea; step-grandchildren, Tom (Muriel) and Jenna (Dennis); great-grandchildren, Emily and Ziyah; and step-great-grandchildren: Noah, Isaac and Erin. Bill is also survived by the mother of his children, Marlyn; and many extended family members and friends. Born in Assiniboia, Saskatchewan in August 1933, and raised on the family homestead in Crane Valley, Saskatchewan, Bill was one of seven children. He was a prairie boy and loved his home in Saskatchewan. Known by those he worked with for his fair approach and good sense of humour, Bill worked as a Dispatcher for CP Rail. He then took on a position at 15 Wing Moose Jaw where he became the head of the department of Roads and Grounds until his retirement. Bill loved art, music and being creative. He carved award-winning walking sticks, worked in his garden, and took meticulous care of his prized yard and swimming pool. He loved making wine, owning and caring for horses, fixing cars, doing home renovations and making things with his hands. Most of all, he loved spending time with his family and friends. Bill and Marlene travelled across North America and abroad, and wintered for many years in Parksville, British Columbia. Bill was known for his quick wit, his infectious smile, and his kind and compassionate spirit. He was a resilient man and a loving person. He will be missed dearly. A Celebration of Bill’s Life was held on Monday, October 29th, 2018 at 1:30 p.m. in the Harvey Room at Moose Jaw Funeral Home. All those who knew and loved him are welcome. In lieu of flowers, donations in Bill’s name may be made to The Moose Jaw Humane Society, Box 1658 Station Main, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 7K7. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Michelle Surtees Funeral Director 306-693-4550 www.moosejawfuneralhome.com

Will there be enough cars to haul grain to port in 10 years?

EXPRESS Almost 50 years ago, the federal government got into the railway business buying 13,500 grain hopper cars to move grain. According to the railways, statutory freight rates were too low to make grain car investment by railways worthwhile. The railways conned or convinced the feds into buying the large cars. Over the years, the government-owned fleet grew to around 20,000. The Canadian Wheat Board acquired 4,000 cars and the Alberta and Saskatchewan governments each acquired 1,000 cars. The federal cars now number around 7,800, down from 8,400 two years ago. G3, the grain company rising out of the wheat board ashes, owns 3,200 left from that fleet. Saskatchewan sold its cars to three shortline railways. Alberta is assessing its policy on the future of the 900-car fleet. CN and CP Rail have announced investment in 1,000 grain hopper cars. Under the Maximum Revenue Entitlement grain freight rate program, investment by railways in grain cars offers a positive return. The question is: will there be sufficient hopper cars to haul the grain by 2027 when more than 3,000 federal cars will be phased out of action? Steve Pratte, a policy analyst with the Canadian Canola Growers Association, recently told a farm conference that action is needed. He said the industry needs to make sure enough cars are on hand to meet future needs as volume of grain production continues to increase.

He outlined several possible options and their likelihood to restore and ensure adequate grain hopper car supply. Government is not going to restore fleet numbers; individual grain companies might do some investment. Shippers are unlikely to renew the fleet, although many major freight shippers in other industries do own or lease a fleet of rail cars. Most likely solution, he said, is a pool of hopper cars available to all grain companies. The cars would be owned by pension funds and leased to shippers. The U.S. grain industry uses that model. Pratte said the hopper car fleet doesn’t need to be as large as 40 years ago. Since the 1990s, turnaround time to port and back has been cut from 14 days to six days, requiring fewer cars. The federal grain hopper car fleet shrunk recently with sale of 440 cars manufactured before 1975. The refurbished cars were sold to the railways for just under $6,000 each. Scrap value of cars sold in 2017 was about $15,000. Transport Canada told The Western Producer the price to railways reflected the railway investment in refurbishment.

Tips on how to start tracing your roots Matthew Gourlie -- Moose Jaw Express

Diane Milton Smith concluded her remarks with a warning: “Be prepared to get addicted.” Marge Cleave quickly added: “... And to spend a lot of time in cemeteries.” The two local members of the Moose Jaw Branch of the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society can certainly speak from experience. Both have spent a number of years tracing their family roots and offered tips from their areas of expertise to help beginners at a presentation at the Moose Jaw Public Library. “There are so many sources of information, it can be hard to know where to start,” said Milton Smith, who is the vice-president of the Moose Jaw Branch. While there are numerous web sites and databases available, Milton Smith offered some practical, old fashioned advice: start with your living relatives -- parents and grandparents -- and see how much they can tell you. Milton Smith has been tracing her family roots for more than 20 years and has found relatives going back to the 1700s. “You always want to find out more and see how far back you can go,” she said. The first meeting of the Moose Jaw Branch was in 1970, but in the digital age it seems that more people than ever are searching their family histories. “I think commercially, it’s been advertised more,” Milton Smith said when asked about genealogy’s increasing popularity. “Before that, there wasn’t so much online. So, you had to go to the record offices and make copies of things.” While commercial sites like ancestry.ca have a lot of information, there are also plenty of free resources available as well. World War 1 records are online at Library and Archives Canada and the World War II records are being digitized. British birth, marriage and death records are available at ‘findbmd.com’ while Information Service Corporation (ISC) has a number of Saskatchewan records online. The local branch has photos of gravestones archived and has digitized all local 21st century obituaries and are adding obituaries from 1970-98 every week on its web site (http://moosejawgenealogy.com). Milton Smith, Cleave and Diane Clarke all showed some of their own research using the census, marriage, birth and death records during their presentations. “There are times when you think you aren’t making any progress and you look back to where you were five years earlier and think ‘I learned a lot,’” said Clarke.

In their presentation, they cautioned to be skeptical of what you find out -- the census is not infallible. It was collected by humans, who are capable of making mistakes and could be incomplete. Marriage certificates can also be inaccurate. Milton Smith said that some note that the bride was “full age” which is to mean 21, but that doesn’t always mean that was their actual age. They also said to keep track of all of your sources, some less obvious sources can provide a wealth of information. Cleave mentioned Dr. Barnardo’s Homes charity that housed many orphaned children in Britain. She sent away and received extensive records of her husband’s grandmother including her entire file from Barnardo’s including her picture. Newspapers, school yearbooks and even wills -- if they can be tracked down -- can add valuable information. “If you can find a will, you see who they left money to and you may have a whole other family you don’t even know,” Milton Smith said. While Milton Smith cautioned immediately not to expect to find you are a descendant of royalty, increasingly long-buried family secrets -- like illegitimate children -are being unearthed as DNA testing becomes available to the masses. Milton Smith said she found some distant relatives on one side of her family based on DNA testing and was able to contact them. “The DNA is still there. That’s what is fascinating. There’s still a blood link even though you don’t know these people at all,” she said. Much like digital records did 20 years ago, DNA databases are likely to aid genealogical research as they grow. “I think it might be really helpful for adoptees if they find a match,” Milton Smith said. “They may not find out exactly who their parents were, but they may find some cousins or other relatives that they can match-up with.” Far beyond a list of dates and names, the joy of the research is in the details that you learn about your ancestors and the details that may resonate in your own life. It can bring the past to life in unexpected ways. “My one set of grandparents came from this little village in England and my sister has gone to live there now. I was working in the garden and the church clock chimed and I thought ‘they heard that, the exact same sound,’” Milton Smith said. “It gives you a funny feeling. It can be very emotional.”

I am not fond of creepy crawlers, evil entities and Halloween. I can’t believe a good chunk of the population embraces evil and celebrates Halloween. And most of all, spends more money decorating and whatever for this so-called ‘witches’ holiday’, more than for Christmas… the celebration of love and giving and God’s gift to the world. That just shows you were the heart of this world is headed. It Joan Ritchie just couldn’t be more black and EDITOR white to me than that: Evil vs Good. Halloween is like a gift wrapped up in beautiful paper with a big expensive bow; it looks good on the outside but when you open it up, out pops the devil in disguise. Young innocent children are caught in the so-called harmless trap of Halloween. They love free candy and playing dressup and why shouldn’t they? It all seems fun and harmless... but is it? “The origin of Halloween can be traced back to the ancient Celts who ruled over Ireland, Britain and Northern France before being conquered by the Romans. The Celts were pagans and the beginning of November marks the festival Samhain for the Celts. Halloween has its roots in the pagan traditions of the Celts, on Samhain they believed that this night marked the night that the door between this world and the next was open and spirits could pass through, distinctions between the living and the dead became blurred. The presence of these spirits made it easier for the Druids – Celtic priests – to make a prediction about the future. On Samhain, the Celts would burn animals or crops on the bonfire as a sacrifice to the Celtic gods. The Celts would wear animal heads and skins as costumes and tell each other’s fortunes on Samhain.” (https://metro.co.uk/2017/10/31/what-is-halloween-the-origins-and-meaning-behind-all-hallows-eve7040966/?ito=cbshare) On another ‘evil’ vein…Has anyone else noticed the previews of movies coming out these days? As I can see, they are evil to the core…in fact, one recently coming out is said to instill such fear in people that they are fainting and throwing-up during the show. I just don’t understand why anyone would subject themselves to this, embracing fear and the feeling of terror? Is this normal behaviour? Personally, I think fear causes lasting effects. And to finish my rant on the subject, I would just like to make mention of the candy that may come into your children’s possession. If you have watched the news recently, a young child in the states was given a candy that was laced with marijuana. His mother found out what it was before the child consumed it. Not sure what would have happened but the kid himself said that he probably would have eaten it if he didn’t know what it was. The mother did not want to press charges against the individual but rather went to the media as a public learning experience. This is just my take on the subject, take it or leave it, but here’s hoping that parents do what they can to protect their kids from unforeseen evil, even in the form of candy or guile.
