Council approves three-year tax exemption for new business



New distillery to brew high-end scotch beginning this year


The City of Moose Jaw will soon be Specialized in Energy Efficient Furnaces home to a fine scotch whiskey distillery after council voted for a three-year tax exCustom Sheet Metal Work emption toward the construction of a new We Service ALL Makes and Models business owned by India-based Imperial Distillery. The distillery will be located on properties at 1121 and 1127 Ominica Street East and is expected to see $3 million in investment and retrofitting, a total of 15 new jobs and new property taxes once the three-year exemption has passed, in addition to taxes that will be paid through employee housing ownership. Interestingly enough, the group has been working its way west looking for a positive situation in which to build their business and have contacts in Saskatoon, while also considering building in Regina. “We caught wind of this and have been very encouraging to them when it comes to conversations with the City of Moose Jaw,” said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. “It’s an opportunity to build bridges to India and to other southeast Asian partners... This is TRANSMISSION another win for the city of Moose Jaw in & AUTOMOTIVE our opinion.” Imperial expects to be up and running in BRAKES 2019, with their product reaching market SHOCKS three years after they begin operations – the kind of scotch being produced reSTRUTS quires at least three years of aging, hence TRANSFER CASES the delay. “Even if it’s outside of our normal policy, DIFERENTIALS (the exemption) carries an understanding that their profits and income wouldn’t be right away, so we want to provide an economic environment to provide for that,” Tolmie said.

job creation and waves additional taxes that might be levied from that capital investment,” McMann said. “This doesn’t do that, this is just a three-year tax abatement and we’re hoping they will invest the money even if we’re not insisting on it. We don’t know that the jobs are going to be created.” While all for new business, the slippery slope was more of a concern for McMann. “It’s as if the city is investing in this property and I don’t know how we could say no to any future requests,” he said. “We have a program that’s in place, and yeah I’d like to see a fine scotch generated in the city, but it doesn’t have to be on taxpayers’ dollars. So, I really have a concern that we’re going down a path that we shouldn’t be going.” That didn’t fit with what Tolmie looks at as an outstanding opportunity to grow business in the city, to the point that such major tax breaks come with the territory. “I think this is a significant change in the way we’ve done business before because we haven’t seen growth,” he said. “When

I go around and visit businesses, they want to see more businesses come because they see the potential for growth and good paying jobs. They want to see businesses that have a tourism component like this, where people would be coming to the city of Moose Jaw for scotch tasting... we’ve seen very little growth, and this is taking a property that’s empty right now and creating jobs and creating investment.” Coun. Crystal Froese felt much the same way, especially when it comes to attracting new businesses to what is essentially a stagnant situation. “This city has been in rut for a long time,” she said matter-of-factly. “We haven’t seen growth, we haven’t seen population change and we have an opportunity here... and I’m pretty sure Al Capone would be happy with it as well. So, I completely support this and I think our citizens will support this as well.” Mayor Tolmie called for a recorded vote, and the motion passed 5-2, with Coun. Brian Swanson and McMann voting against. Mix 103 & Ghostfinger Productions presents:

Maintaining a strong economy is paramount in providing a better quality of life for all citizens. A vital element in economic development is reducing the amount of onerous red tape that may have a negative impact on growth and investment. Our Government implemented the Red Tape Committee to review all legislation and make changes to reduce redundant and unnecessary policies that hinder progress. As a long attending member of this committee, I have seen how reducing red tape makes a difference to business and industry; in savings for the government and the people of Saskatchewan. Red tape costs businesses, residents, and the government $300 million and thousands of hours in lost time every year. The Government of Saskatchewan along with the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB), has proclaimed the week of January 21-25 as Red Tape Awareness Week in the province. This is the 10th year the CFIB is shining a light on the negative impact excessive regulations have on Canadians. The proclamation provides an opportunity to highlight the importance of regulatory modernization and the provincial government’s ongoing effort to reduce red tape for Saskatchewan businesses and consumers. As part of Red Tape Awareness Week here in Saskatchewan, a new “Help Cut Red Tape� web page has been launched, allowing us to report red tape

concerns we may encounter. This makes it easier to report red tape to government, while providing valuable perspective on how the province may offer services more effectively. Each submission received from the public will be referred to the appropriate Government of Saskatchewan ministry, agency or Crown Corporation for effective follow up. The ‘Help Cut Red Tape’ web page is a continuation of the Government of Saskatchewan’s efforts to modernize regulations in the province. Other initiatives include an ongoing commitment to a multi-year review of all business-related regulations for their impact and costs. In 2017-18, regulatory modernization efforts across Saskatchewan were forecast to achieve $132.9 million in savings over the next 10 years—across government and Crown corporations. For more information on how to Help Saskatchewan Cut Red Tape, visit the new web page at: The launch of a new web page, and our other efforts to modernize regulations and reduce red tape, are reasons why Saskatchewan has received the CFIB’s highest ‘A’ grade this year and strengthen our resolve to continue to support the residents and businesses we serve. It is my hope that all businesses can be more successful because our government has made it a priority to reduce red tape. We have many good examples of local businesses that are outstanding in a variety of ways. Some of our most successful businesses will be recognized with the Moose Jaw Business Excellence Awards April 10th. We can support the hardworking individuals who make these businesses succeed. Nominations in twelve different categories are open until January 31. Forms are available on the Moose Jaw Chamber of Commerce website: www.mjchamber. com.

YaraCentre to offer concession during large weekend events The City of Moose Jaw is pleased to announce that a food concession will be open to YaraCentre patrons during large weekend events. Beginning the weekend of January 19-20 with Saskatchewan Selects football, Compass Group will be set up on the main floor, just inside the YaraCentre front doors.

I am weighing in on the expected new and improved version of the Canada Food Guide that is supposed to be unveiled on Tuesday. At first, I couldn’t understand why they would change a basic guide that has sustained the population since it was first released in 1942, but after reading up on some of its history, it seems like the know-it-all food gurus think there are fairly good reasons Joan Ritchie for a new and improved verEDITOR sion. Apparently, over the years, there have been a few upgrades to the initial guide. The Canada Food Guide made its debut in 1942, mostly to address the nutritional deficiencies that individuals experienced with food rationings during the war. It provided a guideline, at that time, for people to follow outlining the minimal amounts of foods that were necessary to address nutritional deficiencies and to maintain good health. The initial concept still seems relevant, but they say the need to address Canadians’ eating habits is inevitable. The health gurus seem to think that the guide is out-of-date in respect to oils and fats, and vitamin D and sodium. The new and improved version is supposedly to address these concerns, as well as addressing the fact that Canadian culture and the socio-economic status of the country has changed with a larger and more diverse population and different environments wherein to make food choices. The new Food Guide will be based around three guiding principles, including foods and beverages to include, foods and beverages to avoid, and the knowledge and skills it takes to implement planning, cooking and preparation of the said substances. We all know that the general population doesn’t eat basic food anymore, prepared simply. By this I mean, raw vegetables, fruits, a variety of real lean meats, healthy oils, whole grains and real dairy products. Many choose to eat fast food laced with calories, sugar-laden beverages, processed foods high in sodium and food product and snacks with zero to no nutritional value that could otherwise be any one of the following: a derivative of cardboard, plastic, some other synthetic product or from something with a name that can hardly be pronounced, let alone guess what it might be. Another thing to consider is the diverse menu of a growing cultural population. Many ethnic people come to Canada and want to eat foods they are familiar with, not realizing these foods may not be available here, therefore substituting food product they don’t know or understand, and quantities that might be unreasonable. Lastly, purchasing healthy food costs money. Eating fresh vegetables and meat, and all the other healthy stuff may be only a dream for those that can’t afford it. And as I recently heard on a Monday morning tv program, the government may have to subsidize individuals to meet their need of a healthy diet. I’m just wondering where they think the money is going to come from to do this?

Abuse of Older Adults What is elder abuse? Abuse of older adults is any action by someone in a relationship of trust that results in harm or distress to an older person. Neglect is a lack of action by that person in a relationship of trust with the same result. Commonly recognized types of elder abuse include physical, psychological and financial. Often, more than one type of abuse occurs at the same time. Abuse can be a single incident or a repeated pattern of behaviour. Financial abuse is the most commonly reported type of abuse of older adults. Why does abuse of older adults happen? Elder abuse often occurs because of the abuser's power and control over an older person. In some situations, the abuse may also result from addiction issues (drugs, alcohol or gambling), mental health problems, a cycle of family violence or ageism (stereotypes about old age and aging). Abuse can happen when the aggressor wants to intimidate, isolate, dominate or control another person. Who abuses seniors? Older adults affected by abuse often know and trust the

person mistreating them. Elder abuse can be caused by a family member, a friend, someone who provides assistance with basic needs or services, or health care providers in institutional settings. In many situations of abuse, the abuser is dependent on the older adult for money, food or shelter. What are indicators of abuse and neglect of older adults? Abuse and neglect of older adults can be very difficult to detect. The following signs and symptoms may indicate that an older adult is being victimized or neglected: • fear, anxiety, depression or passiveness in relation to a family member, friend or care provider; • unexplained physical injuries; • dehydration, poor nutrition or poor hygiene; • improper use of medication; • confusion about new legal documents, such as a new will or a new mortgage; • sudden drop in cash flow or financial holdings If you believe you or someone else is being abused contact your local police.

District community struggles to keep community hall going By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

There aren’t as many people living in the district northwest of Moose Jaw as once, but those left are determined to keep their community hall. Folks in the Rowletta district, 30 miles northwest of Moose Jaw, are working to redo the maple floors on the Rowletta Civic Centre. “Over the years the sub floor rotted and the floor has weaves and bumps,” said spokesperson Bonnie Clubbe. “It’s unsafe.” No cost estimate for the job will be available “until we get into it. It will be expensive.” Over the years, the community has redone the kitchen and more recently repaired the roof. Part of the repair needs arose from several years when they couldn’t af-

ford to heat the hall, she said. The community, with help from some of the young people moving in, started holding more events – craft days, movie nights — a few years ago. “We think it’s important to keep the hall going. It’s our gathering place. It’s important to keep rural Saskatchewan alive.” Clubbe says she practically grew up in the centre, assisting her mother in the concession kitchen. It’s one of two community halls left in the RM of Marquis. The Rowletta Civic Centre has a long community history as a gathering place from the many curling bonspiels when the rink was used, to dances, spring and fall suppers,

theatre and picnics. And the site was home base for the championship Rowletta Lakers baseball team and ball tournaments. Spring and fall suppers are still held with rentals for social events like weddings and anniversaries. “Our (former) people like to gather there.” To help raise funds for the new floor, a Rib and Caesar Night will be held at the Crushed Can in Moose Jaw on Jan. 31 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. For tickets call Clubbe at 306-6316534.

Moose Jaw is Great! Who doesn’t like hamburgers and fries? It is a favourite food of the young and the old, and it was our favourite too. Little did we know that hamburgers and fries would bring disaster — the oil ignited and we had a fire! The fire department was here in minutes and made sure all people and pets were out of the building and then smothered the flames. Our house was all right but the stove, which was carried outside, was destroyed. The firemen worked so quickly, quietly, and compassionately. The paramedics arrived without us calling them, which was good because we had a baby and pregnant daughter in our home, but everything was all right. The fire chief stayed to the end to check the carbon monoxide levels before he would let us back in the house. There could have been a very different outcome to this situation, but when we moved to Moose Jaw two years ago, we hired Regal Electric to bring everything up to code. Rob Kerr walked the property and the house and was very knowledgeable. All new smoke alarms and CO2 alarms were installed on all three floors and when they go off you can’t help but hear them. So today we say a big thank you to the firemen, the paramedics, and Regal Electric for keeping us safe. PS: Thank you also to our great neighbours who came on Saturday with a truck and took a load, including the burned-out stove, to the landfill. Moose Jaw is truly a great place to live!

Indigenous community says actions must follow Sixties Scoop public apology by Premier Scott Moe Sasha-Gay Lobban

Monday, January 7th marked a historic day for the province after Premier Scott Moe apologized to survivors of the Sixties Scoop in a highly televised/livestreamed event. However, while some saw the apology as an important step, others lamented that the apology means nothing without immediate changes in policies and steps to foster indigenous understanding. One Sixties Scoop survivor, Lori Deets, who is also the chair of the Wakamow Aboriginal Community Association (WACA), Moose Jaw, attended the event at the Legislature in Regina. Deets said the apology was “nice words” but the actions that follow are what truly matter. The Sixties Scoop, which the government acknowledged, failed Indigenous families, separated Indigenous children from their families and placed them in homes that robbed them of their culture. Premier Moe apologized on behalf of the province. “During the Sixties Scoop, not nearly enough consideration was given to the fact that Indigenous children come from communities with their own rich traditions, culture and history,” Premier Moe said. “Some Indigenous children were separated from their families and their communities, and as a result, those children were cut off from their culture and they were cut off from their traditions.”

“It’s not just about children in families but the social workers and ministers in charge having Indigenous understandings.” -Lori Deets, Sixties Scoop survivor

He says after meeting with survivors and hearing their stories, the province is now aware of the vast impact the Sixties Scoop has had on Indigenous families and communities. “The consequences are still being felt by individuals and families to this day. The children impacted by the Sixties Scoop are adults now, and we have heard their stories during the last few months.” Premier Moe emphasized the province’s ‘failure’ and said the ordeal has caused much pain. “We failed the survivors we heard from in the sharing circles, and so many others. We failed their families. We failed their communities…we failed,” Premier Moe acknowledged. “On behalf of the Government of Saskatchewan; on behalf of the people of Saskatchewan, I stand before you today to apologize, to say sorry. We are sorry for the pain and sadness you experienced. We are sorry for the loss of culture and language. To all those who lost contact with their family, we are so sorry. There is nothing we

can offer that will fully restore what you have lost.” Premier Moe then assured that government policies have changed and continues to change to keep families together going forward. “What we can offer is the solemn assurance that government policies have changed, and they continue to change. While there are still too many First Nations and Métis children in care, today we work with 17 First Nations Child and Family services agencies to deliver culturally appropriate child welfare services to vulnerable children in more than 60 First Nations communities. Whenever possible, we keep families together. We have strengthened supports intended to maintain a connection to family and culture.” In responding to the Premier’s apology, Moose Jaw’s Lori Deets, a survivor of the Sixties Scoop, says while she is not discrediting the apology, it means nothing without appropriate actions taken going forward. “I did attend the apology at the Legislature. I was on the fence about it but I felt it was important that I went. Nothing happened out of the ordinary that I didn’t expect. It was a lot of nice words. An apology is nothing but an apology. It’s just words,” she said. “The apology is a first step, but I think where we actually need to go is amendments; now what do we do?” she said. “We really need to see more changes in the area of amendments. I would have felt a lot better if he [outlined] what will be done and how it’s going to be done, without the apology.” She stressed that real change will start with a “complete overhaul of the Foster Care system” where a lot of Indigenous children are still part of. “The changes he mentioned in the speech have been in place but yet thousands of children remain in foster care. It hasn’t changed. They say they are doing it but are they really? I don’t want to discredit that an apology was given. However, I’d really

like to see a complete overhaul of the foster care system; not just a lot of Indigenous families keeping the children, but Indigenous workers and indigenous

people in charge of that process and what it involves. Also, going back to the Indigenous way of doing things. Indigenous people had a functioning society for many years and they have ripped that apart and it really needs to come back to that. It’s not just about children in families but the social workers and ministers in charge having Indigenous understandings.” Meanwhile, Cultural Educator, Barb Frazer shared similar sentiments. “I am not a survivor of the Sixties Scoop, but I had family members who were impacted and devastated by it. They were spirited away from family and that had an impact. The apology is just another apology. At the end of the day, it speaks to the immense healing and connecting work that needs to take place as well as the programming that needs to be delivered to meet that need. Immediate work and dialogue need to follow yet another apology. The public acknowledgment [through the apology] was needed to move forward.”

A small spurt in housing development during December left city building permit values looking not as bad as at midyear, but still the lowest in eight years Five single family dwelling permits worth $1.88 million were issued compared with no new houses in December 2017. Year end building permits were worth $29.93 million, a decline of $10.36 million (25 per cent). In mid-year, values were half the previous year. Annual value of building permits since 2011 is $52.3 million and includes three years of unusual construction when the $110 million hospital was built. The city ended 2018 with 21 new single family residences versus 48 the previous year. Value of single family residences was $7.54 million – a decrease of $9.5 million from 2017. Average cost of a new home in 2018 was $359,000 compared with $354,00 in 2017. Last year’s house-building slump accounted for virtually all of the annual loss in construction value.

research to discover that the actual ginger content is two parts per million which is below the threshold for human taste. And worse, this amount is far lower than any amount that could have health benefits. In addition to removing the claim of real ginger from the product in the United States, the company will offer payments to people who purchased Canada Dry for personal use in the United States since 2013 — capped at $5.20 per household without proof of purchase and at $40 per household with proof of purchase. Canadians like Yours Truly will not be able to claim any sort of payment, either with or without cash register receipts. Only in the United States would someone come up with lawsuits over the ginger in Ginger Ale. Meanwhile in Canada, where I’m still in shock, the Canada Dry Ginger Ale producer will not make any changes to advertising material aimed at Canadian drinkers. We citizens of the Northern part of North America will still be told the beverage is made with real ginger — and thus we will continue to offer a glass of stale beverage to calm the butterflies in our stomachs. This whole ginger ale crisis is a bit ironic: on our last trip to those United States of America, it was nearly impossible to be served any kind of ginger ale in a restaurant unless it was the bar variety that was already stale. And the vending machines we saw were devoid of any form of ginger ale. So what’s the deal with the ginger ale lawsuits in this same country? Odd. Just be careful, makers of Ginger Gravol. If your claim isn’t quite truth in advertising, you too might have to offer a payment of $5.20 per household. I will start hanging on to my receipts just in case. Joyce Walter can be reached at

Moose Jaw Fights Back — City rallies to have #BiggerRackForMac Friendly international rivalry with Norway heats up online Sasha-Gay Lobban

The City of Moose Jaw has been trending online since last week after popular social media personalities from Regina, Justin and Greg, called on Moose Javians to take immediate actions to reclaim their bragging rights for having the ‘World’s Largest Moose’— Mac the Moose. Social media lit up with excitement after the duo pointed out that Moose Jaw has been dethroned from the titled which it held for 31 years, until 2015. The duo argued that Mac the Moose is a national treasure and should be protected as such. As a result, they called out Moose Jaw, imploring the city to fight back and reclaim that titled. The title for the ‘World’s Largest Moose’ went to rivals Norway, after the country built a Storelgen, meaning “the Big Elk,” that stands just over 32 feet tall (10 meters). According to their website, Norway boasted that their moose, “beats out its fiberglass Canadian rival ‘Mac the Moose’ in Moose Jaw by about 12 inches (30 centimeters).” The moose statue towers above the highway between Oslo and Trondheim in Norway. Obviously perplexed by this, stating that Norway’s move was “deliberate,” Justin and Greg started an online campaign, urging Moose Jaw to fight back. They posted a YouTube video on all their social media platforms on January 15 which immediately garnered attention.

“Dear people of Moose Jaw, an egregious offence has been committed against you by the people of Norway,” Justin said. “Four years ago, the people in Oslo, Norway, purposefully created a moose, bigger than Mac the Moose by 30 centimetres to try and stick it to you and steal the World’s largest Moose Statue,” Greg joined in. They said the people of Saskatchewan will not stand for this and will help Moose Jaw reclaim its title. “Now, if you’re a city famous around the world for your glorious name of Moose Jaw and everyone that comes by knows that this should be the World’s Tallest Moose,’ said Justin. “They probably think that the people of Saskatchewan and Moose Jaw are just going to roll over and be polite and say, ‘thanks for the memories.’ Well, I’m here to tell you that we are campaigning to put you back on the top!” said an amped-up Greg. They then called on Mayor Fraser Tolmie to take actions to make Mac the Moose the “World’s Largest Moose” again by adding to its already large stature. “We the people of Saskatchewan, we are friendly, we are kind and we will give you the shirt off our back but when you come after our national treasures, internationally known around the world, we will not abide that,” Justin firmly stated. “We are calling on the Mayor of Moose

For the sake of your arteries, get more sleep by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor This is not the first time (nor will it be the last time) I’ve written about the importance of sleep. It is a topic I will often discuss with patients in my office as I feel it is one of the major factors affecting one’s overall health. Very recently, a study was published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology associating sleep duration and cardiovascular disease, specifically atherosclerosis (unhealthy plaque formation in arteries). In their

Jaw, Fraser Tolmie, to find a way, whether it’s a giant hat, long eyelashes, a huge rack to put 31 centimetres back on Mac and stick it to Oslo or else…rename your city…JAW!” the two concluded. The mayor responded with a video of his own, stating that this is “personal” and joined the campaign. With thousands of views, shares and comments on Justin and Greg’s video, the rivalry has grown, with people across the world responding. As such, a GoFundMe Campaign has been set up by Justin and Greg to raise $50,000 dedicated to making Mac the Moose taller than that of the Norwegian’s Storelgen. “It’s personal for me,” Tolmie responded. “Mac the Moose was named after Les McKenzie, former city councillor which happens to be my wife’s great uncle. So, he’s practically family to me. What are the people of Moose Jaw willing to do to overcome this situation? “Mac the Moose was the tallest moose in

study of almost 4,000 people, those who slept less than six hours each night, and those who experienced fragmented sleep, had significantly higher amounts of plaque formation in their arteries. These plaques were found in multiple places in the body, and not just around the heart. The health consequences of atherosclerosis can be dire, leading to early disability or even death, due to heart attack, stroke and kidney disease. Plaque buildup can affect brain function as well. Chronic poor sleep has also been associated with Alzheimer’s and dementia, possibly due to plaque formation in the brain. For a variety of reasons, too many people do not sleep enough hours, or if they do, the sleep is too fragmented to be considered restorative. Deep sleep is necessary for the body to “reset” for the next day. Stresses of everyday life damage the body. Quality sleep helps to repair the effects of this damage.

the whole world and the people of Norway have taken that from us. Well, I’m not going to stand for it and I need your help,” Tolmie said while addressing the community. “What are we going to do? What are you willing to do? What do you think we should do to make Mac the Moose the tallest moose in the world?” Norway also got wind of the campaign and accepted the challenge. They have started somewhat of a campaign of their own. The campaign has also prompted an international response as various main stream media across the world, are shedding light on the friendly rivalry. Norway’s media outlet Dagbladet calls the clash an “International Moose Beef.” They say this is fun for Norway and Canada to highlight both statues. Dagbladet also took the opportunity to start a poll which called upon those around the world to vote on which moose they like best. People can join in on the campaign and give their suggestions by emailing Also, share your comments on Facebook at the City of Moose Jaw and Tourism Moose Jaw. You can follow the exciting rivalry by also looking out for these hashtags #BiggerRackForMac, #WorldLargestMoose #InternationaMooseBeef #SavetheMoose. You can also donate to Moose Jaw’s campaign to raise $50,000 at

Personally, I admit that I am borderline with my sleep habits. I probably average just over six hours of sleep. It is something I need to improve on. I don’t have a problem sleeping, as I tend to fall asleep within just a few minutes of my head hitting the pillow, however I like to stay up late (even if I am tired) and I like to get up early in the morning. For those who struggle with falling asleep, or experience a disrupted sleep, the best way to combat that is with exercise. Research tells us it may be the best strategy to improving your sleep. Even just 10 minutes of exercise daily is enough to increase quality sleep time. Sacrificing sleep for whatever reason may do serious harm to your health. If there is just one healthful change you are looking to make this time of year, getting more sleep may be the easiest way to make the most out of a resolution.

Pretty yellow flowered weed control funded by government By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS A pretty yellow flowered noxious weed called leafy spurge created a passionate conversation at a workshop by the Saskatchewan Goat Breeder’s Association. Agri-environment specialist Victoria Nameth, with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture, was outlining program funding for targeted grazing and biological control of some noxious weeds when one of the goat farmers raised the subject. “You should tell more people about these programs,” said the Grenfell district farmer. “The public doesn’t understand.” Under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) programs, funding up to of $50,000 a year for five years is available for control of certain weed species. Most CAP funding for programs is limited to $50,000 maximum for five years. The Grenfell farmer said the leafy spurge was on the boundary of his farm a few years ago. “Now it’s 360 (degrees) around me. The genie is out of the bottle.” The weed has invaded nearby crops and adjacent trees and shrubs, but grain farmers owning that land “don’t know about these programs or don’t care.”

Jaycee Peutert Nameth said the CAP program covers up to 50 per cent of the cost of spraying or pays for contracted grazing by goats or sheep to control the weed. “You’ll never get rid of it,” she said. “You can control it so you can live with it.” One farmer said he annually sprayed a large patch of leafy spurge and now has a patch about the size of a half-ton truck “with the odd one here and there.” Nameth said leafy spurge roots go 35 feet deep and spread out more than that. The best time to control the weed by cutting, spraying, or grazing by goats or sheep is when the flowers are yellow but

not yet forming seeds. “At that stage the plant has to start all over again.” A second grazing or spraying is usually needed when a second growth develops. For targeted grazing, the leafy spurge is most palatable in the early flowering stage. Sheep and goats digest the seeds where other livestock pass them through the feces. Nameth said control requires a long-term management plan. She added there is a shortage of contractor/herders with goats or sheep to graze/ control the weeds. Program specialist Jaycee Peutert said the problem is compounded by some people picking the flowers. “I’ve heard of Alberta trucks parked beside the road picking the pretty yellow flowers.” Peutert said an eligibility change in gross farm income from $50,000 to $15,000 under CAP risk assurance was a big win

for the sector. Farmers interested in the CAP programs should go on the web to Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Question: do we pay our political leaders enough money? Two conflicting ideas come into play whenever pay is discussed for politicians elected to office. One, based on commerby Ron Walter cial common sense, suggests compensation be competitive with equal positions of power and influence in business. The considerations are grounded in a belief that good pay will make politics more accessible to candidates of all ages, with young families and from all income levels. And this notion suggests good pay attracts the best, hardest-working people as in the commercial world. Canadian politicians at all levels of government never receive top pay, simply because of voter jealousy. Many voters don’t see need for big paycheques to elected leaders, which leads into the second idea on pay for politicians. The no-need-for-pay notion is rooted in an old belief, still held by many voters today: politicians should be doing the job out of service only and should not benefit financially. This concept is as outdated as the horse and buggy mode of transportation. Just ask anybody trying to recruit volunteers or trying to recruit staff for low-paying occasional jobs like election clerks or enumerators. In today’s world, pretty well everything is based on money and getting more of it. Few people run for office, especially for municipal office, solely to get the pay involved: although the City of Moose Jaw has, from time to time, elected council

members who used the money to supplement pensions or as a bridge after retirement. Their motives seemed suspicious. At least one elected mayor, who had many short-term jobs, found the mayor’s job the best paying of his career. Across Canada this year, elected politicians were faced with lower take-home pay as the federal government removed a rule that made one-third of politicians’ pay exempt from income tax. Elected politicians struggled with giving themselves a raise to offset the higher taxes. Average voters can’t give themselves a raise when taxes increase, making the matter controversial. If we want politicians who do a good job, who are accountable, they ought to be well-paid. There should be no shame in this increase, especially in cases where pay is linked to MLA pay or some such standard. ---------------------Some people in Moose Jaw are finding that renewals of medical prescriptions from doctors are done automatically by their pharmacy. Four different cases from two pharmacies are among the complaining buyers. In these cases, the patient had recently renewed the prescription and it was not in need of re-filling, but they had the doctor extend the prescription. The pharmacist’s position, doing the job right away, is understandable. But this practice leads to sudden unnecessary spending for young families and seniors on tight budgets. The issue could be resolved with a box on the digital prescription form saying: Do not fill until requested. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Government seeks input on public libraries

The Saskatchewan government has completed a report on the province’s public libraries and are now seeking public input. The review process of the provincial library system involved engagement sessions that began in Saskatoon on Oct. 10 and concluded Dec. 10 in Regina. This process fulfills the commitment made by the Government of Saskatchewan in the spring of 2017 in the wake of library funding being cut in half before then being reinstated. This process involved meeting with representatives from the 11 public library systems in the province, including board members, staff, and municipal representatives. Other stakeholders were also consulted, including Saskatchewan Library Trustees Association, Saskatchewan Library Association, Multitype Library Board, Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA), and Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM). Jan Smith, Director of the Palliser Regional Library, is asking for the public’s support. She says that public support during the budget crisis of 2017 helped ensure the government reversed its decision to “cut the regional support infrastructure out from underneath the public library system.” “The more people from the general public who respond, the more seriously the government will take their voices. The government has heard from the libraries and their boards and now they need to hear from the general pub-

lic,” said Smith. “We need your help to secure sustainable funding so that the libraries can continue to support your communities. Your support will help reinforce the need for a greater understanding of the value of public libraries within the provincial government. “When the regional systems struggle, it puts strain on the ‘One Card, One Province’ service which makes Saskatchewan the most successful Canadian library system.” The survey asks questions related to eight different themes: funding structure and predictability; provincial public library strategic plan; the one card, one province system — which relates to the ability to use your library card at any library branch in the province; communication with Provincial Library; governance training; Indigenization; the value of public libraries; and legislation. Your response matters because feedback from the survey will be compiled for consideration by the Minister of Education. You can complete the survey by visiting the Palliser Regional Library’s website ( Click on the “about us” link on the top right of the navigation bar and then select “public libraries engagement.” You could also navigate directly to There you will find a copy of the report completed by the government, as well as the one submitted by Palliser Regional Library as part of the engagement process. The survey will remain open until January 25.

Five gold stocks may cash in on possible gold price increase this year

According to an increasing number of analysts, 2019 is the year when the price of gold will break out of its longterm trading range. Even a few analysts who pooh-pooh the value of gold suggest holding some gold stocks as insurance. The optimism about gold is based on three variables: falling value of the U.S. dollar, which increases the price of gold; global uncertainty about trade in Asia and Europe; and an impending federal debt crunch in the United States Bizworld summarizes the investing case for five gold mining stocks from mines under construction to existing mines to advanced exploration. Ascot Resources, $1.04, is developing a mine in the Gold Triangle region in northwestern B.C. near the former Premier mine. The higher grade underground works have outlined, indicated and inferred resources of 2.1 million ounces of gold and almost eight million ounces of silver, still needing more exploration to get to mining standards. Legendary mining investor Eric Sprott has pumped over $20 million into Ascot. Ascot has $9 million cash to keep exploring before selling more shares to fund work. Equinox Resources, $1.06, owns the open pit Mesquite mine in California producing 145,000 ounces of gold this year adding 85,000 from a new mine in Brazil later this year. In 2020, with a new open pit mine in California, Equinox will produce 330,000 ounces. Lundin Gold, $4.60, is building the low cost Fruita del Norta mine in Ecuador with mining to start later this year. The underground mine will put out 330,000 ounces in a full year. The Lundin family of Sweden are mine builders with a

Midas touch. Major investors in Lundin include Orion Mine Finance, Newcrest Trust and Kinross Gold. Premier Gold, $1.58, like Equinox seems a good longterm hold for gold. Premier has a 40 per cent interest in a Nevada mine with Barrick, giving it 15,000 ounces a year. An Arizona mine will produce 75,000 ounces while development near Thunder Bay, Ontario in an old underground mining camp, has outlined one million ounces of measured resources and 2.6 million indicated and inferred. Pretium Gold, $8.97, operates the Brucejack mine in the Golden Triangle of northwestern B.C. with room for expanded discoveries. The Brucejack mine produced 367,000 ounces last year with 400,000 ounces possible in 2019. Pretium has had issues with inconsistent gold grades and has missed production estimates. The northwestern B.C. region tends to have varied gold values with high and lower grade veins interspersed. Pretium has been rumoured as a takeover candidate by Barrick, but grade consistency issues make that unlikely. These five companies offer varying degrees of development and production cost range. Several include geopolitical risk. They present opportunity in a world of stable gold prices and even more if the gold price breaks out as predicted. CAUTION: Remember when investing, consult your adviser and do your homework before buying any security. Bizworld does not recommend investments. Ron Walter can be reached at

City Hall Council Notes Council approves capital project tenders Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw city council approved a host of call-for-tenders for a wide variety of capital projects during their most recent meeting Jan. 14. But those decisions didn’t come without a fair share of conversation, mostly surrounding the ongoing water main replacement program. Council passed a motion to issue a tender for WW-17 water main replacement in the amount of $6.5 million, an amount that Coun. Brian Swanson felt was neither enough, nor was the scope of the project nearly as large as it needs to be. Swanson’s largest issue is the speed with which the replacement is taking place – in order to reach the project’s goal of 80 kilometres of cast iron watermain replacement over 20 years, around 4,000 metres of pipeline needs to be replaced annually. This past year, around 2,700 metres were replaced. “You can’t have a 20-year program for 80,000 metres and average less that 3,000 metres per year,” Swanson said. “The point I make all the time is we need to increase the scope of this program significantly, there is a payback to

the community in that the number of breaks decreases... We’re kind of living a sham when we talk about a 20year program when we’re funding it like a 50 to 60-year program.” Coun. Chris Warren pointed out that as the project continues, further efficiencies will be found, resulting in more and more distance being covered every year. “We’re very early in the process and we’ve had three different contractors in the four different years, so it’s a new process in the great scheme of things,” he explained. “As we move through the project year-after-year, as we upgrade our systems and our records and new technology becomes available, there would be opportunities to do more than the four kilometres in a year.” Coun. Heather Eby offered a proposal that could help with the issue: multi-year tendering. While such a move would require council approval on a case-by-case basis, it was one Swanson and other councillors agreed with, given how such a process could attract larger companies with heavier equipment and more sizable operations. “And along with that you hope to achieve lower per unit

rates,” Swanson said. “They can do it in such a way that, because they have more than one year, you lower the per-metre amount you have to pay. I’m in favour of that.” What Swanson wasn’t in favour of was the amount of money committed to the project and the immediate plan going forward. “We should be looking at three-year contracts for $10 million a year and we would get at the situation in a significant way,” Swanson said. “Right now, we’re not doing it as we’re telling people we’re doing it, that is a 20-year-program.” In the end, council passed all five tender requests as well as the multi-year tender motion: -- TR-1 Paved Roadways for $2,450,000; -- WW-17 Water Main Replacement for $6,500,000; -- TR-2 Sidewalk, Curb and Gutter repair and replacement for $488,300; -- S-1 Sewer Lining and Manhole Restoration for 789,000; -- WW-9 Feeder Main Replacement for $2,000,000.

Diverse list of finalists for Chamber’s Citizen & Group of the Year Matthew Gourlie

The finalists for the Moose Jaw & District Chamber of Commerce’s Citizen and Group of the Year Awards are a well-rounded group, but they all have one thing in common: they all go above and beyond their work lives to give back to the community. “As I looked at all of the nominees for both Citizen and Group of the Year, they’re all doing it outside of their every day work and they’re doing it for the love of it,” said Rob Clark, CEO of the Moose Jaw & District Chamber of Commerce. “Most of them say that they do it just because they want to do it and they don’t want any recognition, but they deserve it.” The three finalists for the Citizen of the Year Award are Joe Gunnis, Lloyd and Lynann Pethick and Cory Olafson. The finalists for Group of the Year are the 15 Wing Fellowship, Born2Dance, Dance Fitness by Kyra, the Moose Jaw & District Sports Hall of Fame, Moose Jaw Families For Change and Sets4Supper. The winners will be announced at the Group of the Year and Citizen of the Year Awards will be held at the Heritage Inn at 11:45 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 24. Tickets

are $30 and are available at the Chamber office (88 Saskatchewan St. E.). “The quantity was down a little bit this year, but the quality was way up,” Clark said. “Sets 4 Supper was something amazing and the Sports Hall of Fame has been around for a few years, but it’s their first nomination and it’s well-deserved for recognizing the history of sports in the community. “15 Wing Fellowship has been nominated before and Born2Dance were nominated before, but other than that we have some new ones.” The Citizen and Group of the Year Awards recognize significant contributions to Moose Jaw’s quality of life, both social and economic, made by private citizens. The 15 Wing Fellowship is a not-for-profit group that began in 2010 as an extension of the Wing Commander’s office to connect the base and the community. They have raised more than $200,000 over the past five years for local groups through their Highway to Heroes car show and Musical Swing concert. Born2Dance is a faith-based dance group that began in 2012 with 25 students work-

ing under teacher Kyleigh Coad and has grown to 300 students and five teachers. Born2Dance offers a wide variety of programs to help achieve their goal of creating an opportunity for all children to take part in dance regardless of their family’s financial situation. Dance Fitness With Kyra have donated more than 1,500 classes in 2018 to groups and individuals who can’t afford them. They have also volunteered at and donated money to 38 different local organizations. The Moose Jaw & District Sports Hall of Fame began in 2015 as a non-profit, volunteer group that looked to honour the area’s local sports history. To date they have inducted 24 athletes, builders and teams from 14 different sports. Moose Jaw Families For Change is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2000 to support individuals of varying abilities. This year they expanded to add a supportive independent living program and added the Kinsmen Inclusion Centre. Sets4Supper was created by Vanier senior Jenna Meili. Along with students Aimee Dumlao, Allison Grajczyk-Jelinski and Madison DeCorby, they put on two chari-

Canadians trending to lower meat consumption By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express



Canadian meat producers need to increase exports to offset declines

in consumption. Last year Canadians consumed 207 million pounds less meat than the year before, according to the Food Price Outlook published by Dalhousie University. Meat-eating trends and a new Canada Food Guide could accelerate that trend. Eight per cent of Canadians fully intend to reduce meat consumption while 24 per cent expect they will probably cut down on eating meat. Adding fuel to the less meat trend will be the new Canada Food Guide. The authoritative food guide, used in schools and institutions across Canada, will likely emphasize consumption of plant-based foods at the expense of meat and dairy proteins. Meat prices are expected to fall between one and three per cent across the country, according to the Food Price Outlook. Meat and seafood, down two per cent in price, are the only food

categories losing price power. This is the first price decline for meat and seafood in nine years since the annual report started. Vegetable prices will rise between four and six per cent with bakery and fruit categories up one to three per cent. Dairy and grocery sector prices will range from stable to two per cent increases. Restaurant price increases will range from two to four per cent. In all, food will cost the average household $411 more in 2019. After a year of lower than average food price increases, Saskatchewan is expected to experience above average price increases along with Alberta, Ontario and B.C. Quebec and Manitoba will see average food price increases, while the Maritime provinces will see lower than average price increases. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel. net

Mortgage Free! Crestview Housing Co-operative celebrates payment of mortgage in full with ‘mortgage burning’ ceremony Sasha-Gay Lobban

Crestview Housing Co-operative celebrated a major milestone on Tuesday, January 15 as they hosted a mortgage burning ceremony. The group marked the completion of their mortgage payments—paid in full at a cost of $2,330,471.00. The Hosing Co-operative, which is home to just over 60 residents, came together, along with some invited guests, to ‘burn’ their mortgage, marking a 35-year end and fulfillment of their agreement with the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation. Several dignitaries also joined in for the celebration with Crestview Housing. MLA for Moose Jaw North Warren Michelson, Gwen Beitel on behalf of MP for Moose Jaw Lake Centre, Tom Lukiwski and Mayor Fraser Tolmie were all in attendance and brought congratulatory remarks. In his remarks, MLA Michelson said Crestview Housing Co-operative is an exemplary organization that has shown how a vision can come together through hard work, planning and dedication. “The decision to construct Crestview Housing was a big decision and huge undertaking at the time, but I applaud Crestview for taking that initiative. For more than three decades, Crestview has provided quality, affordable housing for seniors. Today’s mortgage burning marks the fulfillment of Crestview’s agreement with the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation,� Michelson said. “However, it is much more than that. It is the celebration of a vision and a plan and job well done for all the work and fulfilment of that commitment. There were twists and turns along the way, but you overcame that, and this event reminds us of how important it is to think positive and to plan for the future. Crestview will be remembered for the planning on its part, so on behalf of the Government of Saskatchewan, I want to congratulate you for this milestone achievement.� Tolmie also congratulated the group. “This would not be possible without the vision and great partnerships of people

Retired fire chief (1984) Mike Barton geared up to monitor the burning of Crestview’s mortgage. who came before. I also want to commend the hard work and dedication of the organization and the residents who live here. I am happy to be a part of this and I congratulate you on your special day,� said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. So, what’s next for the Housing Co-operative now that they are mortgage free? Irene Young, Vice-president for Crestview Housing Co-op expressed her delight for this major achievement for the group. She says, however, there is still much work to be done. “I am very pleased to see that we’ve finally been able to pay off our mortgage. What happens from here is a challenge for us because now we’re mortgage free; we have that money now that is not going to mortgage anymore. So, the question now is, ‘how do we manage that money?’ That’s the challenge for us going forward because not only do we have to continue daily operations, but we have to think about how we are going to do renovating and major projects coming up. However, we are very pleased to now be mortgage free.� Young commended Co-operative Housing saying, “It’s a wonderful place to be.

I certainly support co-op housing. I’ve been here for 22 years and I’ve never looked back. The community and family we’ve developed here is a great way to be able to live. Also, the property is amazing, the security and all the concept that comes with co-op housing is great and I fully support this type of living.� Some of the residents also shared their excitement with the Express. Elizabeth Cyr who was one of the residents impacted by the fire at Crestview just over a year ago, says she is happy to be back and to witness the completion of the mortgage payment. She had been living there since 2002, before being misplaced by the fire on December 10, 2017. She returned in September 2018 following repairs. “I am so excited about this mortgage burning today. I’m also delighted to be back. I’ve always loved it here. My suite was one of the ones that was burnt, so I am elated to be back with this amazing community of people at Crestview. It’s been wonderful and I’m looking forward to continuing to be here. We have a great organization here and we’re thankful that we’ve come this far.�

Lorne Lindquist, a new resident who has been living at Crestview for six months says he is happy to join such a wonderful community. He commended the organization for completing the mortgage and looks forward to being part of the family. “It’s been great so far. We came from Central Butte where we sold our house and came to Moose Jaw and we couldn’t have found a better community of people to be living among. Crestview is a great facility to live.� Crestview Housing Co-operative stemmed from a core committee to plan and build a Housing Co-operative for superannuated teachers. In 1982, the site was selected and plans underway. In 1984, the building was completed and occupied. In 2017, the building was damaged by a major fire in the west wing. The building was, however, quickly refurbished and those residents who were misplaced by the fire returned home in September 2018. Today, the group is happy to report that its mortgage has been paid in full.

From The Kitchen B a n a n a s st i l l p o p u l a r c h o i c e f o r sp e c i a l t r e a t s By Joyce Walter For Moose Jaw Express

In winter days gone by shoppers were forced to be content with apples, oranges or bananas for their cold weather fruits. Those days are gone but still the popularity of the banana remains high and homemakers seem happy to use the banana in a variety of desserts and salads. This week’s recipes featuring the banana have been shared by friends who vouch for quality and taste. ••• Banana Brownies 1 1/2 cups sugar 1 cup sour cream 1/2 cup soft butter 2 eggs 3-4 ripe bananas, mashed 2 tsps. vanilla extract 2 cups all purpose flour 1 tsp. baking soda 3/4 tsp. salt Frosting: 1/2 cup butter 4 cups icing sugar 1 1/2 tsps. vanilla 3 tbsps. milk

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease and flour a 13x9 inch cake pan. Beat sugar, sour cream and eggs until creamy. Blend in vanilla and mashed bananas. Add dry ingredients and blend for one minute. Spread batter into pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, prepare frosting by heating butter over medium heat until boiling. Let turn a delicate brown and then remove from heat. Add icing sugar, vanilla and milk and whisk until smooth. Frosting should be thicker than a glaze but thinner than icing. Remove brownies from pan, cool slightly, but while still warm, spread frosting over the batter. Cool completely before slicing. Store in refrigerator. ••• Filled Banana Bread 1 large egg 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup white sugar 1/4 cup vegetable or coconut oil 1/4 cup sour cream 2 tsps. vanilla

My Hockey Smile

There have always been obvious physical ways to determine which sport or hobby someone has an interest in and that can also determine to which level they are interested. Someone who has an interest in body building will have the muscles on every inch of their body to show how dedicated they are in the gym and a cyclist will by Dale “bushyâ€? Bush have a well developed lower body with huge legs. Swimmers often have powerful shoulders and upper body and if a swimmer is really dedicated they will grow gills and have webbed fingers. You can always tell if someone is of a certain age and is or was a dedicated hockey player. They will have a hockey smile, or a smile that is clearly missing some teeth due to the nature of the game. I am of a certain age, when we wore helmets but no masks or visors (still do) and I am a dedicated hockey player, meaning I have lost a few teeth in my smile to pucks (2), elbows (2), sticks (1) and, believe it or not, microphones (another story). It seems like I have always worn a denture to mask the loss of teeth to a sport I love. I lost my first hockey tooth when I was 11 from an errant puck. Knocked cleanly out of my head, I picked it up to save it as a souvenir but it was very painfully reinserted and wired/cemented into place by a sadistic poopy-pants dentist the next morning. This episode in a dentist’s chair of torture may explain my lifelong dentophobia, or fear of dentists. It was knocked out again a few days later and that was when I was fitted for a removable smile‌er, a partial denture, which only made sense. I could remove it for hockey and still have a smile that the chicks liked. A few decades and a few additions later, my removable smile finally wore out and needed replacing so, it was time to buck up and pay the piper or at least pay the dentist. Fearing a trip to the torture chamber of horrors (the dentist’s office), I jokingly began a search for a set of good used dentures on the interwwweb and was astonished to discover that it was no joke. There were ads saying that with a Dremel tool and a relining kit “your smile could be good as new.â€? What was most alarming was the volume of private sales, so I tried to find an extra-large denture to fit my big mouth. Just kidding, but at a cost of about $200, it did make me consider sticking someone else’s plate in my yapper, which reminds me of a story. I played in an old-timers tournament a few years ago and while we were out on the ice our wives sneaked into the dressing room and swapped everyone’s false teeth around the room. After the game during the ritual beer drinking session, players began to put their teeth in and it was only a moment before we were all gagging from the thought of a buddy’s pearly whites in our mouths. What a great prank! Other than being on the wrong end of it, I often tell the funny story. As I was nervously sitting in the dentist chair and met him for the first time, I may have mentioned that my last three assault charges were against dentists. I truly believe that all my painless sessions were a result of his not being sure if I was joking nor not. After a month or two of dental vi$it$ and fitting$, I now have a smile that I can cautiously leave in the dressing room for the hockey game‌in a secret place of course.

Mitacs funding sparks student innovation

Pilot project advances applied research for industry partners Five Saskatchewan Polytechnic students are tackling bullying and creating augmented reality systems with innovative new applications they’ve developed through applied research projects. The students, enrolled in the Computer Systems Technology diploma program, are the first polytechnic recipients of Mitacs funding in Canada, thanks to a new pilot project recently opened to Canadian colleges and polytechnics. Mitacs is a national, not-forprofit organization that has designed and delivered research and training programs in Canada for 19 years. Working with polytechnics, colleges, universities, 4,000 companies, and both federal and provincial governments, Mitacs builds partnerships that support industrial and social innovation by funding student research internships. “This was a trial to find out how well polytechnics and colleges could take advantage of this program, and the results turned out to be a win-win for both the students and their industry partners” says Dr. Terry Peckham, research chair with the Digital Integration Centre of Excellence. Students Chris Nguyen, Draden Sawkey and Rafael De Luna partnered with the Restorative Action Program (RAP), a non-profit group that works with Saskatoon’s public and Catholic high school divisions. RAP provides local high schools with facilitators who offer students counselling, conflict resolution and leadership skills training. Peckham says RAP needed a new system to measure the effectiveness of their program. “Until our students became involved all RAP could do

was use anecdotal evidence, so we’ve started the process of building a system to track and quantifying some of those results.” He adds that no one in the field has addressed this challenge. As a result, “within a few years they will probably become the leading research base for this type of interaction with high school students throughout the world.” “We were very impressed with the entire process,” says Winston Blake, RAP’s executive director. He says RAP originally approached Sask Polytech with the idea of digitizing their current system, but the students explained why a complete overhaul with real-time, quantifiable data would better serve their needs. “The students were able to educate us about how technology can work within the context of our program,” says Blake. “They helped us understand the availability of current technology to actually meet our needs.” The other Mitacs grant supported a partnership project with Glacier

FarmMedia (GFM). The students, Corey Janzen, Luke MacNeil and Rafael De Luna, were tasked with creating an augmented reality application for GFM’s Ag in Motion outdoor farm expo, held annually near Langham. With a three-day show that has over 450 exhibitors and 30,000 visitors, Ag in Motion had a very specialized need for a custom app. By downloading the app onto their cellphones, expo attendees gained access to wayfinding information, event

details and schedules, bonus information about crop varieties, the inner workings of farm machinery and much more. In return, GFM’s exhibitors (and GFM themselves) gained crucial insight into the attendees’ interests and behaviour, such as how many attendees walked by each booth, how many stopped and for how long. “There are all sorts of wonderful types of tracking information that the exhibitors get, and Ag in Motion needs,” says Peckham. Ag in Motion plans to continue development of the app, with enhancements coming forward each year. The impact of these applied research internships is mutually beneficial for students and industry partners. Industry partners gain access to cutting-edge technologies that lead to measurable outcomes, while the students gain knowledge that is very difficult to obtain in a classroom setting. “The skill sets the students learn are incredibly valuable,” says Peckham. “Our students were able to impress the clients enough that they’re coming back for more work, and the companies get to move their applied research projects forward that they weren’t able to move forward before.”

Key services and scholarship provide life-changing support From the time Caitlin Chometa began her journey with Saskatchewan Polytechnic it’s put her on a positive path. “It’s changing my life,” she said. Caitlin was taking a year off after high school with plans to begin her post-secondary education when the sudden loss of the father figure in her life altered her direction. “I was very close to him and when he passed away it made me think of what I really wanted to do with my life.” Caitlin began researching options and arrived at Sask Polytech where Student Services introduced her to a wide array of possibilities. “Sask Polytech has amazing programs,” she said. “They told me about programs that I didn’t even know existed.” Student Services assisted her in making the decision to enroll in the twoyear Library and Information Technology diploma program, making sure the program was the right fit for her. Student Services also assisted Caitlin in filling out forms, accessing grants and

getting settled into student life. Caitlin is hearing impaired and contacted Accessibility Services for support. Accessibility Services is committed to ensuring that equal access for students with disabilities is provided

at Sask Polytech. Accessibility Services assisted Caitlin with accessing grant funding for technology that aids in her learning. She has also been impressed by the mental health supports provided to students. The passion and

enthusiasm of her instructors also impresses Caitlin. “Everyone I’ve encountered is so happy and positive about their jobs,” she commented. “It makes me excited to be here and it makes me want to work harder.” Caitlin was this year’s recipient of the Viterra scholarship. This award is for a registered Sask Polytech student with a permanent disability. She shared her Sask Polytech experiences at the Saskatoon Business & Industry Dinner. “I didn’t know how I was going to be able to pay for school. This scholarship has made the world of difference to me,” she said. In addition to the funding aspect, the award has been a big boost to Caitlin in intangible ways. “It has given me more confidence and reassures me that I’m going in the right direction.” Caitlin can’t say enough about Student Services and the support she has been given. “They really have gone above and beyond to help me.”

Wheat genome blueprint accelerates innovation Written by Sarath Peiris

Breakthrough research in creating a comprehensive blueprint of the wheat genome will bring disruptive innovation to wheat breeding, predicts University of Saskatchewan crop scientist Curtis Pozniak, whose team played a key role in the successful international wheat genomics project. “The wheat blueprint will enable us to decipher the genetic basis of important traits in wheat, such as genes responsible for resistance to fungal diseases and pests. That is the disruptive part. What took years to do before can now be done in a matter of a few weeks,” said Pozniak, a wheat breeder at the Crop Development Centre (CDC) in USask’s College of Agriculture and Bioresources.

“We are very excited about this project. The idea is not use just one genome sequence, but make a comparative analysis of many sequences simultaneously,” -Curtis Pozniak, University of Saskatchewan crop scientist New knowledge generated by the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium over the past 13 years is expected to have a huge impact on global food security, with the planet’s population projected to reach 9.6 billion within three decades. “From a breeding perspective, the blueprint will enable us to develop

University of Saskatchewan crop scientist Curtis Pozniak

DNA markers for breeding. These markers will allow us to improve the efficiency of selecting important traits, which will ultimately help produce better wheat varieties over the long term,” Pozniak said. The next step for the USask team will be to lead the 10+ Wheat Genome Project—a larger-scale international initiative to sequence more than 10 cultivated wheat varieties from the main growing areas across the globe. “We are very excited about this project. The idea is not use just one genome sequence, but make a comparative analysis of many sequences simultaneously,” Pozniak said. “To understand what genes do in wheat plants, you need multiple sequences so you can start comparing to really appreciate all of the differences. You can then associate these differences with important traits we select in breeding programs.” Andrew Sharpe, director of genomics and bioinformatics at USask’s Global Institute for Food Security and co-lead with Pozniak on the wheat genomics

research, is also excited that the new project will yield a lot of data on genomic variation that will help the agriculture industry respond to environmental changes. “We’re hoping to work out all the different gene variations that could have an impact on traits,” Sharpe said.

“Basically, we will end up with a catalogue of variation and how it impacts a crop in the field.” Because the CDC has been involved from the beginning of the wheat genome project, researchers here have the benefit of a two- to three-year early access to the information, he said. “You will see that reflected in the new varieties that ultimately come out of the breeding pipeline,” Sharpe said. “By helping with selecting the most optimal plants in a breeding cycle, you end up with better performing cultivars being generated quicker than they were. That’s important, particularly in a changing climate,” said Sharpe. Kirby Nilsen, a recent USask PhD graduate and now an assistant plant breeder at CDC, is among the first researchers worldwide to use the blueprint to develop pest-resistant wheat crops. He used the genome sequence to identify genes responsible for solid wheat stems, which act as a barrier to sawfly damage.

Gearing up to power the North with renewables Written by Sarath Peiris

Canada has committed to an electricity system by 2030 that will be 90 per cent carbon non-emitting, a move that requires transitioning to renewable energy such as wind, solar and biomass. But the current impact assessment (IA) process used by public regulatory bodies for evaluating these projects can be expensive and time consuming because project proponents often have to address issues that repeatedly have been raised and answered in reviews elsewhere, says University of Saskatchewan researcher Bram Noble. “We want to make the process more efficient without losing the effectiveness of the impact assessment process in moving projects forward,” he said. Noble, a professor in the geography and planning department of USask’s College of Arts and Science, has been awarded an Insight grant of $92,000 by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) to develop an efficient IA process for renewable energy projects. By 2020, his team will analyze the environmental, social and economic impacts typically associated with wind energy projects across Canada, and identify mitigation strategies and solutions to reduce adverse impacts. For instance, bird strikes on windmills are regularly raised as a concern, even though existing miti19014UU0 19014UU1

Bram Noble, a professor in the geography and planning department of USask’s College of Arts and Science

gation measures are effective. His goal is to develop an open-access online IA toolkit to help project proponents, consultants, governments and communities plan better for wind energy projects. The process developed for wind energy can be applied broadly to other renewable energy projects such as solar and biomass. “We are interested in identifying impacts

people can expect from a proposed renewable energy project—the most controversial areas and those that lack certainty in effectively managing impacts on physical and social environments,” said Noble. This project lays the foundation for a more comprehensive project his team will be proposing to SSHRC on renewable energy transition for northern Indig-

enous communities. Team members are: Greg Poelzer, a political scientist in USask’s School of Environment and Sustainability; Kevin Hanna, a resource management expert at the University of British Columbia; and industry participant Ranjith Narayansamy, a senior business adviser for SaskPower. The project is the second step of research that began with a SSHRC Connection initiative led by Poelzer to build a network of energy research. Noble and Poelzer plan to seek SSHRC Partnership funding to research how to transition northern communities to renewable energy in ways that add local social, cultural and economic value, while managing the environmental impacts. The project involves researchers from across Canada, Alaska, Norway and Sweden. The research fit well with the USask priority of advancing reconciliation, Noble said. “We are approaching this as one pathway toward energy security and self-sufficiency for northerners, and it opens the door to other opportunities,” he said. “We are trying to primarily add value to the North. If we get scholarly output that’s great, but it’s secondary.”

January is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month:

Alzheimer’s Society campaign aims to make province more dementia friendly Sasha-Gay Lobban

The Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan is on a mission to make our communities more dementia friendly by increasing awareness and reducing stigma. January is marked Alzheimer’s Awareness Month - a national initiative by the Alzheimer Society of Canada to better inform and educate Canadians about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. As part of that effort, Alzheimer Societies across Canada are continuing a social awareness campaign profiling individual stories from Canadians affected by dementia. The campaign, “I live with dementia...Let me help you understand” is about changing the attitudes and understanding of Canadians about dementia and the people affected by it. The Alzheimer’s Society says, “The hallmark of the campaign is Canadians affected by dementia telling their own stories.” The stories and many more are featured on a dedicated website, where visitors will find tips on how to be more dementia-friendly, activities to test their knowledge and other resources to take action against stigma, and be better informed about a disease that has the potential to impact everyone. The Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan is bringing this awareness across the province and imploring others to join in making Saskatchewan communities more dementia friendly. Communications & Marketing Manager, at the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan, Leslie Quennell says even though January is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, awareness is spread throughout the year through their educational programs and initiatives. “January is our national awareness month,

Saskatchewan’s Gordon Grant is featured on where he shares his story and helps others understand. (Photo provided by Alzheimer’s Society of Saskatchewan). but we bring awareness throughout the year through our programs. Our campaign this year is called, “I live with dementia...Let me help you understand.” Across the country, we are profiling people who have a lived experience with dementia and getting their voice and lived experience out—basically sharing their stories,” noted Quennell. “Our website tell those important stories. Someone from Saskatchewan is also featured in that campaign where they get to tell their story about living with dementia,” Quennell pointed out. He noted that it was important that those stories were brought to light by people directly impacted. “From our perspective, it is really important that those people who are directly impacted have a voice and are

able to articulate the issues and what the challenges are for them. It is very much about reducing stigma; trying to get people to have a better understanding about dementia and how to engage in a meaningful way for those affected, as well as make our communities more dementia friendly.” He added that awareness, reducing stigma and making the province more dementia friendly, however, are not only done in January. “We do that right throughout the year. We aim to increase understanding for all Canadians on what dementia is and how it impacts individuals, families and communities.” There are some events happening this month throughout the province that the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan says people can be part of. One of such events

19 Lucky things for Pigs

The word you will say in the morning of the first day of The Chinese Lunar New Year. It has a meaning of cheers, wishing people luck & have a wonderful future. In Hong Kong and other Cantonese speaking regions, Kung Hei Fat Choy is the New Year Greeting. Happy New Year in Chinese is “xin Nian kai le” and in Mandarin Chinese, it’s “gong xi fa cai” meaning “congratulations on the fortune.”

• Colors: yellow, gray, brown • Numbers: 2, 5, 8 • Mineral: agate • Directions of auspiciousness: southeast, east • Directions of wealth: northeast • Directions of love: north

Unlucky things • Colors: blue, green • Numbers: 1, 7, 9

The Year of the Pig The Pig is the twelfth of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Pig was late because he overslept. Another story says that a wolf destroyed his house. He had to rebuild his home before he could set off. When he arrived, he was the last one and could only take twelfth place. In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth and they have a very pleasant personality. Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune as well. Recent years of the Pig are: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019

Personality and characteristics

Pigs might not stand out in a crowd but they are doers and very realistic, getting the job at hand done. Though not wasteful spenders, they will let themselves enjoy life. They love entertainment and will occasionally treat themselves. Because they are a little materialistic, this is motivation for them to work harder for what they want. They like the security of seeing and handling what they have bought. They are energetic and are always enthusiastic, even for boring jobs. If given the chance, they will take positions of power and status. They believe that those with power and status have the right to speak, and that’s what they want.

have good fortune with wealth and because of their ambition, their efforts are rewarded. Their hard work will keep money flowing in. They are highly organized at home and if a room is messy, they’d stay up the entire night to clean it. These women love children too. Playing with children is one of the things that bring them the greatest joy.

Pigs in the Year of the Pig (2019)

The year of one’s zodiac sign is traditionally the most unlucky year for them. Pigs may find luck in some areas of their life, but others will require hard work to avoid potential pitfalls. Pigs will most likely experience many emotional ups and downs, making them feel frustrated and sad at times. This will not be a transitional year for Pigs, so it is advised for them to ride out most situations if possible. They should become aware of possible oversights and improve upon them so they don’t dance around the same problem over and over again. Attend happy events throughout the year and avoid negative places like hospitals and graveyards.

Careers fit for Pigs

Men born in the Year of the Pig are optimistic and gentle. They are very focused. Once they decide on a goal, they’ll put everything into it. They are not the best with money. Though cool-headed, they are also gullible. They trust others easily and are often scammed, possibly causing them to lose a fortune. These men are also quiet and love learning but don’t really know how to put their knowledge into words. They’re not conversationalists, but treat everyone warmly. Because of this, they are loved by most and have many friends. During difficult times, there’s always someone to help them out.

Pigs are a gentle breed and very rarely lose their temper. Even when they do, it’s never a dramatic commotion. They’ll always try to compromise and settle things quickly. Their goal in life is for everyone to live peaceably and in harmony, so they are suited to careers related to charitable organizations and fundraisers. They are also very tolerant and understanding, and willing to assist others in smoothing things over in bad situations. They are patient and want the best for everyone, making them great teachers and coaches. Pigs need to be more assertive in business, taking the occasional risks in investment but not too often. Real estate is a good option for Pigs. Changing careers this year should be avoided and be wary of conflict. Pigs should face their problems with patience and practicality. Luckiest Months are April 8th – July 20th; Unluckiest Months areSeptember 12th – December 2nd.

Women born in the Pig year are exuberant and love social outings, attending as often as possible. Their genuineness and easygoing personality helps them gain everyone’s trust, although sometimes their over-friendly personality can be misconstrued as over-bearing. They

Pigs take pride that they are naturally healthy, with a great build and resilient body. They are always spirited and seem to never run out of energy, although their overconfidence causes them to overlook some minor symptoms. If neglected too long, even the smallest things can




become issues. Pigs lead very busy lives so they don’t always acknowledge their need for rest, and during seasonal changes, they are more at risk of getting respiratory diseases. As well, unhealthy diets can lead to high cholesterol, heart problems or diabetes. Although their tenacity is a positive in the workplace, it can be a detriment if their health is overlooked. Regular checkups are advised. Pigs should not overlook small health issues this year. It is advised that if feeling ill, go to a physician. Maintain a consistent exercise regiment and a healthy diet with unprocessed foods and more fruits and vegetables. Do not neglect your mental health and if need be, rely on friends and family to get you through hard times. Seek the help of a licensed professional such as a therapist if necessary.


For Pigs, investing in education this year will position them to take better advantage of future opportunities. Their charm will help in the classroom, giving them favour with their professors.


The love forecast for Pigs is pretty uneventful for 2019 but there should be plenty of enjoyable moments and new prospects during this year. Be observant, as these opportunities are meant to teach you a lesson about what is and isn’t important in a suitor. Because of a lack of relationship drama, Pigs should focus more on making new friends and connections, possibly impacting future network opportunities. For Pigs in a committed relationship, it is important to communicate your desires to your mate. Actively listen to your partner and don’t be afraid to tell them how you feel or you may find yourself harboring some resentment.


Pigs will have a difficult year and must practice patience and discipline. Don’t be short sighted and instead of focusing on the current, focus on the future, setting up long term opportunities.

Chinese New Year is celebrated by more than 20% of the world and is the most important holiday in China and to the Chinese people all over the world. Some things you may not know about Chinese New Year: Chinese New Year is the Spring Festival; the holiday marks the end of the coldest days and welcome spring, planting and harvests - new beginnings and fresh starts. In the Gregorian calendar, Chinese New Year ranges anywhere from January 21 to February 20th. In 2019, it occurs on February 5th. Originally, the Spring Festival was a ceremonial day to pray to gods for a good planting and harvest season. People also prayed to their ancestors, as they were treated as gods. It was also a time for fighting off monsters; the myth of Nian is the favourite and would happen every New Year’s Eve. Most people would hide at home but one brave boy tried to fight him off with firecrackers. The following day, people celebrated their survival by setting off more firecrackers and that is how firecrackers became a crucial part of the Spring Festival. The most fireworks are set off in the world at midnight that night; in the morning they are used again to welcome the new year and good luck. The same night, families burn fake paper money and printed gold bars in honour of their deceased loved ones. They believe the offerings will bring fortune and good luck to their ancestors in the afterlife. The Spring Festival lasts technically about 15 days and because the celebrations start on New year’s Eve, it is actually 16 days. During the holiday, Chinese people spend twice as much on shopping and eating out than Americans spend on Thanksgiving. It is a time to spend with family so during the previous month, people stock up on cooking supplies, snacks, gifts, new clothes and more. It is the biggest family reunion and everyone tries to return home for the New Year’s Eve dinner. Some singles hire fake boyfriends/girlfriends to come home with them because carrying on the family name is very important. Showering isn’t allowed New Year’s Day. Sweeping and throwing out garbage isn’t allowed before the 5th. This is to make sure you don’t wash away the good luck! On the other hand, there’s a day before the Spring Festival dedicated to cleaning. This day is to sweep the bad luck away and make room for the good. Other things that are taboo during Chinese New Year are: • Hair cutting (before February 2) • Using scissors, knives and other sharp things • Arguing, swearing • Saying unlucky words (such as “death” and “sickness”) • Breaking things Instead of receiving gifts for the holiday, Chinese children receive red envelopes with money. This money is supposed to help transfer fortune from the elders to the kids. Dumplings are supposed to be eaten for every meal every day but it can be too much of a good thing so dumplings are eaten during the New Year’s Dinner or for the first breakfast. Wine is specifically a libation for the Spring Festival, as it is for every ceremony in China. With such a rich wine culture there are many rules to follow. When you’re eating with someone older than you, you need to follow strict toasting etiquette rules. They in loud the order of toasts, seating, how you hold the wine glass and much more. The Chinese decorate everything with red; it is an invaluable weapon against evil spirits. There are 12 Chinese zodiacs, with an animal but the animal is for the entire year. Unfortunately, your zodiac year is bad luck and the unluckiest for you. This ‘benming’ year is your rebirth year. During this year, the colour red is your weapon of defence for protection and fortune. Many people will also wear red underwear every day of the year. On Spring Festival, you grow one year older. In China, you have a real age and a fake nominal age. The real age is the one we all know; the nominal age increases with the Spring Festival.

Chinese New Year and Food Chinese take great pride in food and there is lots of thought and preparation to the menu. The dishes are created to give blessings for the next year; the names and looks are symbols of wishes for prosperity, happiness and auspiciousness. Although every region has different customs, there are some dishes that are common in most households. Spring is the season to plant new seeds so the Spring Festival is the best time to finish all the vegetables stored and preserved from the winter. A dish of all sorts of vegetables put together can always be seen on the table during New Years. Some symbolic vegetables are: • Seaweed: symbolize wealth and fortune • Lotus seeds: a blessing for many children and a healthy family • Bamboo shoots: represent longevity, as well as going onward and up • Muskmelon and grapefruit: symbolize family and hope. In addition, grapefruit symbolizes wealth and prosperity • Osmanthus flower petals: in Chinese, osmanthus (桂—guì) is a homophone 贵, which means noble and precious • Leek/chives: leek (韭—jiǔ) sounds similar to 久, meaning long and everlasting • Poria mushrooms: another play on words, this mushroom (茯苓—fú líng) sounds similar to 福禄 (fú lù), or blessings and fortune.

Sets4Supper donates over $8,000 to Riverside Mission Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

From a mere idea to raising over $8,000 for Riverside Mission in only a few months. It’s safe to say the first-ever Sets4Supper charity volleyball matches were a resounding success, with the brainchild of four Vanier Collegiate students turning into the kind of fundraiser that could be a hot mark on the calendar in the future. But first there’s the aftermath of the inaugural Sets4Supper, which presented a cheque for $8,315.26 to Riverside Mission interim director Rachel Mullens on Jan. 14 at Vanier. “It for sure exceeded all of our expectations,” said organizer Jenna Meili, who worked alongside fellow Vanier students Madison DeCorby, Aimee Dumlao and Allison Grajczyk-Jelinski to bring Sets4 Supper to life. “We were just hoping to get $2,000 but to make more than $8,000, that’s crazy.” The event was simple in its design: a celebrity charity volleyball match and a high school all-star game with a silver donation at the door. But it morphed into the good kind of monster very quickly – the celebrity game ended up featuring members of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, the Snowbirds and even luminaries

The buzz started and come game day the Ned Andreoni gymnasium was packed with fans, who turned out to be exceptionally generous with the silver collection, penny parade and silent auction as well – the latter two featuring a wide variety of prizes and gifts gathered through simple hard work by the Sets organizers. “We didn’t expect the response from the

community we got, and we didn’t think we’d have as many people coming out to support it as we did,” DeCorby said. “People were very, very kind with the silver donation. We expected loonies and toonies and some people were dropping in 20s.” Add in a pair of entertaining and close games and talk has already started about what an expanded Sets4Supper might look like next year.

“I think this one set the stage this year and will lead the way for future Sets4Supper, we hope,” Grajczyk-Jelinski said. “This year we were kind of able to figure everything out so it should a lot easier next year.” “It’s always hard to know where to start and where to end so we had a lot of support from (EMJ Marketing specialist and Central Cyclones coach) Joe Gunnis and the teachers and staff at our school,” added Dumlao. “Just figuring out which job goes with which, prioritizing was very important for the whole process.” As could be expected Riverside Mission themselves were exceptionally happy to see the donation, with Mullens nearly moved to tears when the cheque was presented. “It was a very pleasant surprise to get that amount of money, especially for a first time thing,” she said. “They did really well, the whole Sets4Supper was well organized, they had great celebrities and to earn over $8,000 on their first time out is just amazing. Especially since it’s a group of high school students who put it all together.”

Kinsmen Sports Celebrity Banquet to once again feature star-studded line-up Popular annual event quickly taking shape as showtime nears Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

The 27th annual Kinsmen Sports Celebrity Banquet, which will be held Sat., Feb. 2 at the Heritage Inn, is quickly shaping up to be another entertaining night of stories, laughter and – most importantly – raising plenty of cash for the wide variety of programs sponsored by the local service organization. With well over a million dollars raised through previous incarnations of the wildly popular event, Banquet chairman John Bye is hoping to see another successful evening with their slate of celebrity guests. Former Toronto Maple Leafs standout Darryl Sittler will be joined former Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons and race car driver Amber Balcaen as special guests, with Sportsnet Central anchor Jamie Campbell will return as the master of ceremonies for the fourth straight year. “We’re really happy with the line-up this year, we have a good mix of celebrities and we’re expecting it’ll be a really fun and entertaining evening,” said banquet chairman John Bye. The event will follow much the same format it has the last couple of years – Sittler will act as the keynote speaker, with a pair of hot stove sessions giving patrons the chance to ask questions of the celebrities.

NHL legend Lanny McDonald (centre) and Roughriders standout Chris Best listen in to one of Blue Jays pitcher Joe Biagini’s many entertaining stories during the 2018 Kinsmen Sports Celebrity Banquet.

The format has proven popular in the past. “It seems to work out really well, you get a good mix of stories from everyone and there’s always some good laughs out of it, too,” he said. A Hockey Hall of Fame and Canadian Walk of Fame member, Sittler played in the NHL from 1970 to 1986, with the first 12 of those seasons as member of the Maple Leafs. The first Leaf to score 100 points in a single season, Sit-

tler is most famous for the greatest single-game offensive output in NHL history – his six-goal, 10-point effort against the Boston Bruins on Feb. 7, 1976 continues to stand as an NHL record. Sittler was named to the Hall of Fame in 1989 and in 2017 was named one of the Top 100 Greatest NHL Players. Gibbons was the head coach of the Toronto Blue Jays from 2004 to 2009 and again from 2012 to 2018, reaching the American League Championship Series

in 2015 and 2016. He retired at the end of the 2018 season and was celebrated with John Gibbons Day in Toronto on Sept. 26. Balcaen is a third-generation driver from Winnipeg and is the first Canadian female to win a NASCAR sanctioned race in the U.S. The rookie of the year on the 2014 Sprint Car circuit, Balcaen is now president of her namesake racing company and will compete on the NASCAR K&N Pro Series in 2019. The banquet will also feature the live and silent auctions, with a wide variety of items up bidding including a signed Sidney Crosby jersey, a signed Gibbons ALCS Blue Jays jersey, a signed print of the Toronto Maple Leafs captains, signed Connor McDavid and Mario Lemieux jerseys, and a guitar signed by the bands who played the One Horse Town concert. All proceeds from that auction item will go to the Special Olympics. The banquet’s annual awards will also be presented, including the CHAB Sports Team of the Year, Moose Jaw Express Sports Builder Award, and the Kinsmen Sports Achievement Award. Tickets are currently available for the banquet at $150 each or a corporate table of eight for $1,200. For more information or reservations contact Cory at 306-631-8893 or John at 306-690-4555.

Generals pick up win over league-leading Tisdale Local squad remaining positive as last-ditch effort for playoff push begins Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Generals know their road to the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League playoffs is going to be a tough one, but that isn’t keeping them from giving it their best shot anyway. The Generals dropped a 5-0 decision the Swift Current Legionnaires on Jan. 17 but rebounded in style three days later as they defeated the first-place Tisdale Trojans 5-2 at Mosaic Place. The win sees Moose Jaw now holding an 11-19-2-1 record, nine points back of the Beardy’s Blackhawks for the eighth and final playoff spot with 11 games remaining in the regular season. “We can compete with that kind of team if we come with that kind of effort all the time,” said Generals coach Ray Wareham. “Against Swifty we just didn’t seem to have any energy, but today they responded and played like they’re capable of. We had some last-minute scratches due to sickness and a bunch of guys who were sick still played and they still came out and had a great game.” The Generals wasted little time getting things going against Tisdale, as Jake Palmer scored 2:20 into the game and then added a power play marker with 2:42 remaining in the first for a 2-0 Moose Jaw lead. Brendan Kemp made the score 3-0 with another goal on the man advantage at the 12:57 mark as the Generals would come out of the second period with a 3-1 edge. Kemp added his second of the game and Jaxon Georget scored an empty netter to put things away. Jaxson Taupert made 23 saves for the win, the Generals

tonight since we just beat the first place team.” While the Generals have a major mountain to climb in order to catch eighth place over the next month of action, Wareham has no intention of letting his charges give up in any way, shape or form. “We told the guys ‘don’t quit here’,” Wareham said. “We have our work cut out for us and we need some help, but we can control our effort and if we play like we did here today and get some more wins, we’ll see what happens at the end of the season.” The Generals are back in action Jan. 26 when they travel to Wilcox to face the Notre Dame Hounds. Next home action is Feb. 2 against the Yorkton Maulers (1:30 p.m., Mosaic Place).

The Generals’ Steven Kesslering lays a hit on Tisdale’s Davis Chorney.

We might not have been the best team most nights, but we showed we’re capable

Wright returning to Team Canada for 2019 World Championships Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

Marie Wright still has some unfinished business on the curling ice. The veteran national team player and 2018 Paralympic Games bronze medalist will have another crack at a world championship gold medal as she was recently named one of five players who will compete at wheelchair curling worlds in Stirling, Scotland beginning Mar. 3. “It nice to be back because the players are getting closer and closer, so you have to work that much harder to make the team,” Wright said shortly after Team Canada made the official announcement. “We’re aiming to bring the gold back to Canada — it’s time. We know we can do it, we just have to go out there and play our game... it just feels like we’re really strong this year and we’re ready for it.” Wright — who skipped Team Canada to the Paralympic medal — will be joined by a pair of her teammates from last year in Mark Ideson of London, Ont. and Ina Forrest of Armstrong, B.C., while Collinda Joseph of Stittsville, Ont. and Jon Thurston of Dunsford, Ont. will make

Being able to avoid the last-chance camp was a positive for Wright, as it showed her game is still at an elite level. “Nobody is really assured to make the team, it comes down to the tryout and the stats they keep,” Wright said. “They keep the stats for the tryouts and for the games and that’s what it pretty much

comes down to... It pushes you to try harder, you cant’ just say ‘ho hum, this is easy, I’ll make it no matter what.’ you have to work hard and focus a lot harder to make sure you make the team.” Ideson will act as skip this time around, with the remaining positions decided through a four-game series with the United States Feb. 1-2 in Winnipeg. The 2019 Worlds will mark the third international assignment for Wright, after playing in the 2017 Worlds — where Canada finished fifth — and the aforementioned 2018 Paralympics. Her most recent selection comes with the added bonus of taking place in a venue she always wanted to visit. “I’ve always wanted to go to Scotland, that’s where my family’s roots are from and I’ve always wanted to see it,” she said with a laugh. “So that’ll be a fun part of it all, too.”

Warriors open road swing with three straight wins

Tribe take victories over Kamloops, Kelowna, Victoria before falling in overtime to Calgary Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Warriors couldn’t have asked for a better start to their road swing through the B.C. Division. Playing four games in five nights to kick off the Western Hockey League trip, the Warriors won their first three games before falling 2-1 in overtime to the Vancouver Giants on Jan. 19. Prior to that loss, the Tribe defeated the Kamloops Blazers 5-2 on Jan. 15 and took a 5-1 victory over the Kelowna Rockets on Jan. 16. They then traveled to Victoria on Jan. 18 and took a 4-0 win over the Royals. The impressive showing sees the Tribe improve to 24-11-6-2 on the season, 12 points clear of Brandon for third place in the East Division and six points back of Saskatoon for second place. Moose Jaw has four games in hand on the Blades. Vancouver 2, Warriors 1 The loss in Vancouver was a hard-fought, back-and-forth contest that saw all the scoring in regulation happen in a span of just over two minutes in the first period: Jett Woo scored 7:08 into the game to put the Warriors ahead 1-0 before Bowen Byram tied the game for the Giants at the 9:36 mark. There the score would stay until overtime when Davis Koch scored 2:58 into the extra frame to give Vancouver the win. Both goaltender turned in solid performances, with Brodan Salmond taking second star honours with his 25-save showing and Trent Miner stopping 26 shots for the Giants. Warriors 4, Victoria 0 After a close call the night before saw Salmond lose his shutout bid with only three minutes left in the game, the Tribe were able to get the job done in front of Adam Evanoff, helping the Warriors goaltender to his first shutout of the season. Tristan Langan had long before made sure the result wasn’t in doubt, as he scored a natural hat trick in the second period – Justin Almeida assisted on all three goals – to put Moose Jaw ahead 3-0 heading into the final frame. Keenan Taphorn added their other marker.

Evanoff stopped 28 shots to pick up the clean sheet; the Warriors fired 29 at Victoria’s Griffen Outhouse. Warriors 5, Kelowna 1 The Warriors broke out their scoring depth in the second game of the trip, as five different players hit the scoresheet: Carson Denomie in the first, Almeida and Woo in the second, Drae Gardiner – with his first of the season – and Daniil Stepanov in the third. Josh Brook and Yegor Buyalski finished the game with two assists each. That was more than enough for Salmond to get the win, as he made 18 saves before Kyle Topping scored for the Rockets in the game’s dying moments. Warriors 5, Kamloops 2 The Warriors opened the trip with a backand-forth contest that saw Justin Almeida and Dalton Hamaliuk score in the third period just over two minutes apart to put the game away. Almeida finished with two goals and four points as the Warriors led 3-1 after the first and 3-2 through two. Langan had a goal and an assist and now sits third in WHL scoring with 36 goals and 74 points, two back of Edmonton’s Trey Fix-Wolansky. Almeida’s solid week saw him move to 10th in league scoring with 14 goals and 59 points. Evanoff made 34 saves for the win while his teammates fired 32 at Kamloops’ Dylan Ferguson. The Warriors’ trip continued in Prince George on Jan. 22, with their next contests against Edmonton on Jan. 25 and Medicine Hat on Jan. 26. Next home action is Feb. 1 against the Tigers.

All Are Welcome!

On the Front Porch

by Wanda Smith

Surprisingly Unexpected I admit I’ve never been one for surprises. It has been my feeling that anticipating a birthday party or a purchase of something is much more fun for me as I plan and look forward; I would rather prepare for something than be caught unaware or unprepared. Hubby knows full well not to plan a surprise birthday party for me that’s for sure! However, in the last few months, God has been correcting me and showing me to stop saying “I don’t like surprises.” There are several reasons why a person doesn’t like to be surprised; we may feel the need to be in control, the need to have a planned reaction, or we may not be at our peak such as feeling too tired or not wearing appropriate clothing, etc. These would all be legitimate reasons to not relish in the thought of being surprised. Interestingly, this past summer as I was listening to Dr. Jerry Savelle’s teaching, I realized I need to be open to surprises. He taught on how God is a “God of surprises” and that we need to be open to surprises. Job 5:8 says, “If I were in your shoes, I’d go straight to God, I’d throw myself on the mercy of God. After all, he’s famous for great and unexpected acts; there’s no end to his surprises.” As I’ve given some thought to this, I can see where God has actually surprised me (blessed me) with some situations that were very favourable for me. I can think of several situations that I hadn’t predicted or planned ahead for that have come to pass for us including nicer vehicles, renovations in our home, and better jobs that were all surprises which turned into blessings. Job 9:10 says, “We’ll never comprehend all the great things he does; his miracle-surprises can’t be counted.” We mustn’t limit God to the way He’s done things in the past. He is the God of marvels, wonders and extraordinary manifestations of greatness! This year, 2019, is to be a year filled with these marvels, wonders and manifestations. It is the year of abundant harvest in which God will pour out on those who’ve sown in faith and will reap in faith. We need to be expectant and looking for God moving on our behalf... if we aren’t, we aren’t walking by faith. I like to think of Moose Jaw’s slogan, “Surprisingly Unexpected,” as a faith-filled declaration over this great city, my hometown. God has His hand on this city... He is setting it up for unexpected surprises that are going to move it into greatness in the seven mountains of culture: religion, family, education, government, media, arts & entertainment and business. Don’t put God in a box. He’s got a lot up His sleeve. Our job is to believe it and sow into this with faith-filled words, finances (where God shows us to give) and patience (being consistent and unchanging despite the circumstances). “We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.” Find those in your community who are full of faith and patience and have a heart for God to manifest Himself through marvels, wonders and extraordinary manifestations and then get involved with these people. We can build a community who desires to see God move in awesome ways to bring transformation to the region. We can and will be pleasantly surprised by God if we are open to it! Read Psalm 112: 6 & 7

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved father and dear friend. Carl passed away suddenly on Monday, January 14th, 2019 at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital in Moose Jaw, SK. Carl was predeceased by his wife, Anne; son, Brian; parents, Frederick and Elsie; and sisters, Alma Timbers and Irene Bacon. Carl will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed by his sons: Dale (Laurie) and their daughters Allison and Nicole; Evan (Corinne) and their son Landon; Terry (Cathy) and their daughters Caitlyn and Meghan; granddaughter, Risa (Derrick); great-grandchildren, Blayke and Cooper; grandson, Jeremy (Kerry); as well as his loving caregivers, Lita Genilazo and Marivic Alfonso. He will also be greatly missed by his brother, Ken; sister-in-law, Mary McCready; many nieces and nephews; plus many, many friends. Carl migrated west from Stouffville, Ontario as a teenager along with six friends. In 1954 he married the love of his life, Anne Skarpinsky in Moose Jaw. Anne and Carl made their home in Moose Jaw, Pangman, Assiniboia, and finally back in Moose Jaw. Where ever they lived, they made great friends, had many good times, and lasting memories. Carl was involved in numerous business ventures over the years, many of them very successful. From construction laborer to entrepreneur, no matter what the venture was, he always saw a way to achieve beyond what others thought was possible. Some of his businesses include – Inland Construction, Leeville Construction, Frontier Construction, Cardinal Construction, Dura Structures, and Home Hardware. In addition to his business ventures, he had multiple real estate developments and holdings throughout western Canada. From hospitals to schools, his companies had a hand in constructing many of the legacy buildings in southern Saskatchewan and Alberta. Above all, he valued most his business partners who became life-long friends. Carl was passionate about giving back to the community. He served in civic politics for 25 years, of which 16 years were as Mayor of Assiniboia. He served as both Kinsmen District Deputy Governor and President of the Kinsmen Club in Assiniboia. He served on a number of corporate boards as well as community boards, primarily in the health service sector. In 1992, his achievements were recognized by the government of Canada when he was awarded with a Commemorative Medal in recognition of significant contribution to compatriots, community and to Canada. Carl loved to entertain, so much so that he built a patio and garage designed around his barbecue. The Pilkey door was always open and all were welcomed. Carl was an avid Roughrider fan, a 47 year season ticket holder, and attended several Grey Cups with family and friends. Carl loved to fish, both for the sport and maybe more so, for the camaraderie. He went west coast deep-sea fishing annually, and more frequently to his favorite Saskatchewan fishing holes, Waskesiu and Dore Lake. He loved to travel and live life to the fullest. His love for travel was evident as he frequently traveled throughout Canada, the US, and the world. Right up to his last day he was planning his travel itinerary for the upcoming year. A Celebration of Carl’s Life was held on Monday, January 21st, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. at the Hillcrest Church, 1550 Main St N, Moose Jaw, SK. Pastor Barry Taylor officiated and interment has taken place at Rosedale Cemetery. A Visitation for Family and Friends was held on Sunday, January 20th, 2019 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Moose Jaw Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations in Carl’s name may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Sask, 2360-2nd Ave, Regina, SK S4R 1A6, or STARS Air Ambulance, 1441 Aviation Park NE, Box 570, Calgary, AB T2E 8M7 https:// Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane.

Keyin Jory Robbins They said there was a reason, They said that time will heal, But neither time nor reason, Will change the way we feel, Just tell us you are happy In that land way up above You’re snuggled in an angel’s wings All wrapped up in our love. We want to tell you something, So there won’t be any doubt, You’re so wonderful to think of, But so hard to be without.

Loved forever & always, Mommy,Daddy,Cody,Kadin & Kasia

World Economic Forum warns of impact of global tensions By Pan Pylas THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LONDON _ Tensions in international relations and nationalist politics have the potential to further weigh on the global economy this year, organizers of next week’s gathering of business and political leaders in the Swiss ski resort of Davos warned Wednesday. In its annual Global Risks Report, the World Economic Forum said a ``darkening’’ economic outlook, in part fostered by geopolitical tensions between the United States and China, ``looks set to further reduce the potential for international co-operation in 2019.’’ In 2018, the global economy slowed more than most forecasters had been predicting and stock markets around the world posted their worst year in a decade. Some of that has been blamed on the standoff between the U.S. and China over trade that has led to both sides imposing tariffs on hundreds of billions worth of goods. The report, which is based on the views of around 1,000 experts and decision-makers from around the world, found that 88 per cent of respondents expect a ``further erosion’’ of global trading rules and agreements that will further hold back growth. The world is evolving into ``a period of

divergence following a period of globalization,’’ the WEF said. One of the most exposed countries is Britain, which is due to leave the European Union on March 29. It is unclear whether the country will actually leave on that date and under what terms it might eventually exit the bloc after British lawmakers on Tuesday voted against the Brexit deal that Prime Minister Theresa May had negotiated with the EU. The 2016 vote to leave the EU had been driven in large part by a belief that Brexit would restore decision-making powers to Britain. U.S. President Donald Trump has used similar justifications to employ his ``America First’’ policies on a range of international issues, such as climate change. ``The energy now expended on consolidating or recovering national control risks weakening collective responses to emerging global challenges,’’ the WEF said. ``We are drifting deeper into global problems from which we will struggle to extricate ourselves,’’ it added. © 2019 The Canadian Press
