The Moose Jaw & District Chamber of Commerce announced the 2018 Citizen and Group of the Year at its annual awards ceremony at the Heritage Inn on Thursday, January 24. The 2018 Citizen of the Year went to Cory Olafson, while 15 Wing Fellowship received 2018 Group of the Year. 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 awards increase public awareness of these contributions and give well deserved tributes.

“Getting awards is not why we do as much as we do in the community, but it is indeed humbling to be recognized.” -Citizen of the Year, Cory Olafson

In accepting his award for Citizen of the Year, Cory Olafson said he is humbled by the recognition. “Getting awards is not why we do as much as we do in the community, but it is indeed humbling to be recognized. I’d like to congratulate and recognize all the other nominees for all the work they do for our community. A lot of people know me from the Kinsmen Club, an organization I’ve been with for over 20 years. A lot of things I’ve done, I’ve done with a lot of great people who have helped me to get the work done. It’s definitely team work. I’ve got a family that is extremely supportive and understanding of all the things I do to give back to the community. I’d also like to thank my mom and dad for instilling in me the importance of giving back and

I hope to pass that on to my children so they can also be involved.” The other nominees for the 2018 Citizen of the Year were Joe Gunnis and Lloyd and Lynann Pethick. They were also recognized and given a special award for their outstanding contributions to the community. Aaron Ruston, president of 15 Wing Fellowship accepted the Group of the Year award on behalf of the organization. He said the work wouldn’t have been possible without the team of people who all contribute to help 15 Wing give back to the community in tremendous ways. “We’ve got a whole group of incredible people that work very hard to make this happen. They say, ‘it takes a village,’ well…it’s never been more real than this case here. Since 2010, 15 Wing has been in existence to really create a tie between 15 Wing and the community and to bring both together. It has certainly morphed over the years and it’s a wonderful feeling to give back.” The other group nominees were Born2Dance, Dance Fitness with Kyra, Moose Jaw & District Sports Hall of Fame, Moose Jaw Families for Change and Sets 4 Supper. They also received recognition and a special award for their work in the community. This year’s awards ceremony was sponsored by CAE Inc. and 800 CHAB/Country 100/Mix 103.9.

2018 Heritage Award Winners Sasha-Gay Lobban

The Heritage Advisory Committee announced the 2018 winners of the Heritage Awards at the Moose Jaw & District Chamber of Commerce’s annual Citizen and Group of the Year awards ceremony. Scott Hellings, Chair of the city’s Heritage Advisory Committee said the “annual awards honour the individuals, groups and organizations who have worked to promote and preserve our city’s rich heritage.” Five (5) awards were handed out in four (4) different categories. The first category is for heritage craftspeople or tradespeople. This award was given to three individuals who volunteered their time to work on the city’s clock towers. The recipients are Brandon Cochrane, Murray Rimmer, and John Trodd. The second category is for heritage advocacy and education. Gord Johnson was one of the recipients for this award. He has spent many years promoting Moose Jaw and tourism, with a particular focus on the city’s beautiful heritage buildings. The second recipient for this award is Kayleigh Olson.

Heritage Craftspeople/Tradespeople: Brandon Cochrane, Murray Rimmer, and John Trodd.

Olson has compiled an impressive archive of materials related to the history of First Nations in Moose Jaw. She has also been a vital part of the committee that is currently trying to get the former Wild Animal Park land renamed to reflect the Indigenous peoples who originally inhabited the land. The third category is for long-term stewardship of a heritage building. The recipient for this award is Scotiabank. The Heritage Committee says Scotia has done a great job of preserving their beautiful downtown building. Earlier this year, they refurbished their cornice and brick. They are the only bank in Moose Jaw still fully operating out of a heritage building. The final award is for restoration. The award went to Ron Papandrea who is currently living in Michigan. Heritage Committee Chair, Scott Hellings and Councillor Crystal Froese accepted the award on his behalf. The Committee says on a tour of the Moose Jaw cemetery on the east side in September, they noticed that the headstone of Tasnisakawin Brule was missing. The wife of Black Bull, she is the only First Nations person buried in the cemetery. The Committee was concerned that the headstone had

been vandalized. The Committee took a decision to replace the tombstone but upon return, the stone was back on the grave, fully refurbished. It was later established that Ron Papandrea took it upon himself to repair the headstone. Papandrea is the author of a book titled They Never Surrendered: the Lakota Sioux Band That Stayed in Canada. The Heritage Committee thanked Papandrea for taking this initiative.

Legion honours Remembrance Day creativity from area students Matthew Gourlie

Wearing a poppy, attending a Remembrance Day ceremony, and learning about the contributions of veterans is an annual part of the school year for students. For many area students, so too is marking November 11th with a poem, an essay or a poster as part of the Royal Canadian Legion’s Remembrance Campaign. Wednesday, the Royal Canadian Legion Moose Jaw Branch No. 59 honoured the winners who had the best Remembrance school displays, plus the poster and literary awards. “It’s been an event since we were younger and we’ve always grown up with it,” said Anessa Stevens who first entered when she was in kindergarten. “So I thought I might as well do it while I still can since it’s been a tradition that we’ve always done.” Stevens, a Grade 10 student from Avonlea, won first prize for her poem in the senior age category and also was second in the colour poster contest. Stevens won for an essay she wrote in Grade 6. The entries are generally class assignments, but she said that students at her school enjoy the chance to enter and earn monetary prizes for the best entries. “The teachers make us do it, but the kids are all excited knowing we get to write a poem or an essay or draw something,” Stevens said. “I’m really excited

Whiplash Season Has Arrived by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor It took a while to get our first taste of real winter this season, but it is finally here. The farmers may be happy to see the potential moisture in the recent snowfall, but the storm has brought on slippery streets and the potential for fender benders, sideswipes and “driving with undue care and attention”. Whiplash season has arrived. I had my first whiplash (that I know of) at 15 years of age after our car was hit broadside. Both vehicles were totalled and thankfully the injuries were limited to sprains, strains and whiplash. I received no formal treatment after that accident and it was thought

that I had “recovered” from the injuries within just a few weeks. Forty years ago, if there were no broken bones, and if you were not visibly bleeding, you were “fine”. Decades later, however, research is telling us that maybe I wasn’t so fine, so soon, after all. In our office, we ask that our patients fill out special forms if they have been in a motor vehicle accident. One form asks about their symptoms that they have been experiencing since their injury. When talking about whiplash type of injuries, most would automatically consider neck pain and stiffness and headaches to be the more common symptoms. What we tend to see, even in the mildest of whiplash cases, are symptoms that most would not relate to whiplash injuries. Dizziness, fatigue, irritability, nausea, depression, anxiety, sleep disturbance, insomnia, lack of concentration, poor memory, blurred or double vision, restlessness and light sensitivity are all symptoms that have been reported in whiplash sufferers. Interestingly, all these symptoms are commonly seen in post-concussive situations, as well. For a number of years now, research is telling us that many whip-

lash injuries are likely causing traumatic brain injuries and not just neck and back strains and sprains. Caregivers often tell their whiplash patients that they should expect to recover from their injuries within 8 to 12 weeks, depending on the severity of the accident. While this may be true for the soft-tissue component of the injury, it is possible those injured may have long-term chronic problems due to Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS), which for some may last many months or even years, especially if not recognized in the early stages. Concussion protocols have included rest from physical and cognitive activities that aggravate symptoms; protocols that are well known to doctors and athletic therapists who deal with direct head trauma. However, when these symptoms arise following whiplash injuries, they are too often dismissed and not treated with concussion protocol. Traumatic brain injuries can occur with minor car accidents. If you’ve been in an accident, do not hesitate to mention to your caregiver if you experience symptoms beyond headache, back or neck pain.

Speaking for many Canadians and especially those living in the prairie provinces, “Don’t mess with our “Sacred Cow” love of beef! As the Canada Food Guide now focuses more on plantbased proteins such as tofu and chickpeas, there is some worry in the agricultural community as to how this will affect the beef and dairy industry. Personally, when Joan Ritchie considering tofu for dinner, I EDITOR may as well be eating rubber. It has no taste on its own but takes on the flavour applied to it. Been there; done that! According to a nutrition consultant with the Canadian Food Council, Mary-Anne Binnie said it was a misinterpretation, denying that the guide recommends eating less meat. “They’re encouraging the plant-based protein, but not at the expense of meat,” she said. As for me and my house, I think red meat is getting a bad rap. It has always been part of the stubble-jumper’s diet. Maybe individuals eat more beef than they should, but it is part of our geographical demographic that determines what we produce here on the prairies, just like chickpeas are the major staple of the Middle East. Bill Huber, Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association president says repercussions may not be immediate but possibly in a few years down the road. He adds, reducing red meat consumptions could put some Canadians at risk of iron, zinc, and vitamin B12 deficiencies and inadequate protein intake. Beef provides several essential nutrients including high-quality, complete protein, all essential amino acids, readily available iron and zinc, and others such as riboflavin, niacin, selenium and vitamins B6 and B12. And on another related vein, while I heartily applaud new business coming to Moose Jaw, I am not sure that I think a three-year tax-abatement on a property for the hope and dream of a distillery providing jobs and a product worthy of recognition should be a concession for a 3-year tax exemption. Councillor McMann stated at the City Council meeting last week, “It’s as if the city is investing in this property and I don’t know how we can say no to any future requests.” If you have a protocol as to dealing with new businesses coming to the city, concessions for one should be available for all forthcoming. And what about those businesses that have been established over the years in Moose Jaw that are expanding and hiring new employees? Where is their city tax break? Shouldn’t it be expected from and for all? It looks like the City of Moose Jaw is opening up a can of worms here. Apparently, it seems that the city’s taxpayers, somehow, someway, will have to dig deeper in their pockets to bridge the tax-base gap because of a new business that has a 3-year tax exemption and won’t be adding to the tax base in Moose Jaw for three years. The money has got to come from somewhere?

Editor: For too long, the working people of Saskatchewan’s resource towns like Moose Jaw haven’t had a real voice in the political decisions directly effecting their lives, and livelihoods – about pipeline projects, new mines, forestry tenures. That’s not only a tragedy for Moose Jaw, it’s a travesty for resource development across Canada. Last spring, we launched Suits and Boots to change that. Founded by six people in April, we have since grown to more than 3,200 people across Canada – Suits in offices and Boots out in the field alike doing the important work that makes Canada such a prosperous nation. We have held rallies and flown banners over Parliament. We have written Senators asking them to kill the current version of Bill C-69 and send back to the House of Commons so this flawed attempt at re-working Canada’s environmental assessment regulations can be re-done. We have sat down with politicians in our capital to call for change. We have been invited to the Prime Minister’s Office to hear our side of the story.

We have been constructive, offering solutions and ensuring the perspectives of resource sector working Canadians finally gain a voice. We have an impact. Because you now have a voice. We have only been successful because 3,200 Canadians have signed on to get involved – writing letters to Senators and MPs, showing up at events, and lending their support. Bill C-69 will soon be going before the Senate environment and natural resources committee. The fate of Canada’s resource sector hangs in the balance. Now is the time we need our voice. Now is the time for Moose Jaw and other resource towns across Canada stand up, be counted, and speak up. We can help you do that.

Yukon singer charms audience on a cold night Matthew Gourlie

The cold weather may have put a damper on the evening’s attendance on Wednesday night at the Mae Wilson Theatre, but Sarah MacDougall’s music was an ideal soundtrack to a cold, dark, blustery night. The singer-songwriter grew up in Malmö, Sweden with a Swedish mother and Canadian father. She moved to Canada after high school and after living in Vancouver moved to Whitehorse. MacDougall cites “the dark beauty of Scandinavia-the vastness of the Yukon” as influences in her music and you can hear it in her songs. MacDougall played 15 songs during two sets that comprised her 95-minute performance. After playing her first four songs solo with her guitar, MacDougall was joined by Christopher Wong for the rest of the evening. Wong played keyboard and drums -- occasionally in the same song -- and offered some atmospheric electronic elements backing MacDougall. A two-time winner of the Western Canadian Music Awards for Roots Solo Album of the Year, MacDougall’s fourth album All The Hours I Have Left To Tell You Anything sees her move in a new direction with hints of dance music and electronica. They opened the second set with an uptempo “Empire”, the first single off of All The Hours I Have Left To Tell You Anything. “Bleeding on the Dancefloor” was another highlight off her new album, as was the first song of the night, the quiet, intricate “Baby, I Know.” MacDougall even sang one song in her native tongue “Malmö i mitt hjärta” an ode about her love-hate rela-

During the concert, MacDougall related that she initially went to the Yukon to play two weeks of shows. At the end of that run, she had an offer from another musician to live

in a cabin rent-free for four months and a part-time job from an employer who wanted to work around her musical career. MacDougall never left. She played “Permafrost”, a song she wrote during her time staying in that remote cabin in Golden Horn, Yukon. After a bear sighting in the area, she stayed confined to the house and only ventured out to use the outhouse during the two hours of daylight between noon and 2 p.m. MacDougall related a story about the time she performed for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge -- Prince William and Kate Middleton -- with a group of local artists in Whitehorse. The Royals were effusive with their praise of the show. When they said it was the best concert they had ever seen, MacDougall recalled thinking “Ever? Really? You need to get out more,” she related with a laugh. The Duchess spoke to MacDougall in a receiving line and complimented her guitar playing. She said someone had just gifted her a guitar and asked MacDougall for tips. MacDougall replied that if she built up the calluses on her fingers, it wouldn’t hurt to play. “She touched the calluses on my fingers and I could see on the look on her face that she would never touch that guitar again,” MacDougall said. MacDougall closed her first set with a song dedicated to her grandmother that had the crowd singing “We’re all going to blow away someday” along with MacDougall. It may have been frigid outside, but MacDougall received a warm reception on her first trip to the city -- a standing ovation after the final song.

Gerry Onyskevitch retires after 42 years with Co-op Longtime Moose Jaw manager responsible for major upgrades at local supermarket Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Gerry Onyskevitch has left an indelible imprint and remarkable legacy on the community of Moose Jaw during his tenure as the general manager of Moose Jaw Co-op. Onyskevitch, 63, will retire as the general manager of the Moose Jaw Co-op at the end of January, leaving behind a history of almost unparalleled repair, growth and success that has the local supermarket standing as one of the top places to shop in the city. He first showed up in 1991, leaving behind a similar story of success in Dauphin, Man. to take over what was, by all accounts, a struggling store facing many difficulties. In the 27 years since, the Co-op building has undergone massive renovations and modernization, some changes that weren’t too popular when they happened but have been embraced since. A large gas bar has been installed at the main location and the business expanded into a massive fuel station in a prime location on South Hill. There’s been growth and positivity

recognized for all his hard work. With that in mind, a large group of friends and well-wishers took part in a special retirement dinner and celebration for Onyskevitch on Jan. 19 at the Heritage Inn, creating an evening filled with memories and plenty of laughs.

“I feel good about it,” said Onyskevitch, about his time with the Co-op. “When I came here, things were in rough shape but once the community support started to come, it almost started to come easy. One thing led to another and people thought it would be good, so people thought the next thing would be good and it just continued on from there. “So it’s been really good. I have no regrets about anything that happened here; it’s been a good time and I’ve rather enjoyed it.” The interesting thing about Onyskevitch’s work is how few missteps there were along the way. As one speaker said in the special memories video shown during the event, everything he touched seemed to turn to gold. “It’s like (operations manager/controller) Jamie (Wright) said, I had a group that was really good, so when we were doing things we made sure that we did look at all the options and potential risks that we would do,” Onyskevitch said. “Make sure that the decisions

were the right decisions to make. Most of them turned out decent; I can’t remember a whole lot that didn’t turn out good, and that’s luck and people helping out and making a difference.” When asked of his greatest accomplishment with the Co-op, Onyskevitch chose to recognize the people he worked with, as opposed to direct personal goals. “It’s probably not one thing, just overall the success we had and the support we received from the community,” he said. “There were so many people who came in and worked with me for awhile, spent time training and went on to become general managers. I have a lot of them out there who trained with me and are now running retail the same size as this and we have good communication. “And even to this day I talk to those guys about ‘what do you think about this’ and ‘how do you think this would work’. That’s the thing about the Coop system, we do have that, and we do talk about things and take the opportunity to recognize someone’s success, and if someone fails or screws up at something, we try to correct it and do something. Overall it’s not just one thing.” While Onyskevitch has no immediate post-retirement plans, spending time with the grandkids and stopping by his old stomping grounds for the occasional coffee is on his list of things to do. “I don’t know; we don’t have a lot of plans,” he said of he and wife Lorna’s upcoming time away from the working world. “I do have a workshop that I built a few years ago in my backyard, I like to do woodworking and it’s all back there but not put together. It needs to all be organized, so that’s what I plan to do for awhile, but no real plans other than that.” What it all comes down to in the end is timing and wrapping up his Co-op story in his own words, even if he’ll miss many of the people he saw from day to day. “I feel I made lots of friendships, not only a work relationship, but we socialized, took a managers trip to Vegas a few different times, and we really got to know people outside of work.” Onyskevitch said. “Those are the kinds of things you enjoy and you hope it continues on. “It’s nice to leave in this situation. There are some people who left because they had to. I’m glad I don’t have to do that; I’m leaving on my own and there’s an appreciation. I can come back and have coffee and enjoy it and hang out and have fun. That’s what I’m looking forward to.”

Moose Jaw officially moves to reclaim title for “World’s Tallest Moose” Sasha-Gay Lobban

It’s official…Mac the Moose is on a journey to reclaim its title as the “World’s Tallest Moose.” The news was made at a press conference with an official statement made on behalf of Mac the Moose, read by Mayor Fraser Tolmie. Mac the Moose, with support from Tourism Moose Jaw and the City of Moose Jaw, has decided that it wants to restore its pride and national dignity by reclaiming its title from rival Norway, who took the title four years ago. In the statement, Mac the Moose said, “The world needs to know – I am not ashamed of my size, nor should anyone else be. But this is not a size issue – it’s a pride issue.” “I bear no grudge against my shiny, Cloven-hoof counterpart Storelgen. But much like my natural enemy the bear, his Norwegian creators stalked me with predatory purpose, horning in on my territory. So I, Mac the Moose, hereby give permission for my Tourism Moose Jaw caretakers to take me to new record-breaking heights… one way or another, I will soon reclaim my status as the “World’s Tallest Moose,” the statement said. Speaking with the media, Mayor Fraser Tolmie said the city will rally together to make Mac the “World’s Tallest Moose” once more. “This is a happy day for the City of Moose Jaw. It is the start of something new. Obviously, we have a challenge in front of us and that is to restore Mac’s pride—the City of Moose Jaw’s, Saskatchewan’s and the nation of Canada’s pride. There’s going to be a lot of hard work in front of us to get Mac back as the world’s tallest moose, but we’ve got a community and a province that is willing to do that, so we’re very encouraged and grateful to all those who are supporting us.” Tolmie said Mac the Moose is a national treasure that needs to reclaim its rightful status. “Mac is a national treasure—we’re humble people but the challenge was laid down with us by the people of Norway and they purposefully built their moose to be bigger than ours and we’re answering the call,” he said. “I don’t see the connection between moose and Norway…but there’s a connection between moose and Canada and I think the rightful crown belongs in the City of Moose Jaw. We’re a polite people but there are things you just don’t do to Canadians,” Tolmie says of the friendly

There is a Go Fund me page and there have been numerous businesses that are stepping up to the plate and we’re grateful to our community for that. The issue regarding tax dollars is a rumour,” he said. “This is not a petty thing…it’s a pride thing and we’re reclaiming our national pride.” And a word to Norway? “We’ve had some communication with Norway. They said that they would also answer the challenge but my words to the people of Norway is, we have the resources and we will bring it,” added Tolmie. Meanwhile, Tourism Director, Jacki L’Heureux-Mason said Tourism Moose Jaw will provide as much support needed to make Mac the Moose, the “World’s Tallest Moose” again. “We are willing to do whatever it takes to put our Mac back on top! We will start with some structural investigation. So, if any engineers would like to help us, please let me know,” she said. “This is more than just a good-natured competition to us. This puts our Mac in the spotlight, putting Moose Jaw on the

radar of millions of potential visitors to our wonderful city. Our organization is a non-profit, and we know that this community will support us in this endeavour. The requests for involvement have been more than we could imagine. We thank everyone for their offers of help.” The friendly rivalry started two weeks

ago when social media lit up with excitement after popular social media personalities Justin and Greg pointed out that Moose Jaw has been dethroned from the title 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 title. The title for the ‘World’s Tallest 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. Since then, Moose Jaw has been in the global spotlight as some dubbed the competition an “International Moose Beef”. To support the initiative to make Mac the Moose, the “World’s Tallest Moose” again, you can donate to the Go Fund Me page at https://www.gofundme. com/f/mac-the-moose which aims to raise $50,000.

Let’s Have a Moose-Off

It was one of those chance occurrences that started out innocently. Before long, I was slightly outraged or at least slightly annoyed, but I was something, maybe slightly irked. It really is not anything more than bragging rights, but the situation is escalating to the by Dale “bushy” point where action is necessary, the sooner the better. Bush Here is my beef…or at least here is my moose! After decades of uncontested greatness Moose Jaw’s giant mascot, Mac the Moose, whose home is the Tourism Center on the outskirts of town has been replaced as the world’s largest moose by a statue of a moose in Oslo Norway by a margin of less than 30 centimeters or for you old school folks, a mere 12 inches. If you type and scroll and point and click on the interwwweb you can see a picture of what the Norwegians are calling Storelgen or The Big Elk; I will admit it is an impressive statue. I always thought Norwegians were from Norwegia, but I digress, their big moose is impressive being made out of highly polished metal. I am sure the guy that runs the sunglasses kiosk will make a fortune. Storelgen is so sparkly and shiny that I wonder if airplanes will

be allowed to fly over the big elk. People from Norwegia may be confused by the difference between a moose and an elk; they are both members of the deer family. You must be a city slicker if you can’t tell the difference. From my experience, moose could care less about people, which makes them easier to hunt and elk are afraid of people, which makes them harder to hunt. Perhaps something was lost in translation. As I discovered, Europeans do call moose “elk” …who knows why? I may be wrong, but the last time I saw Mac (more than a few years ago), there was no question he was a he and he was so much a “he” that a fence was erected around the big guy to keep vandals and pranksters from decorating the jewels of the prairies. The Norwegian artist, Linda Bakke, has given Storelgen a more modern unisex look but the give-away are the bullmoose antlers (palemate) compared to a bull elk’s antlers (dendritic) configuration. By not showing the “he” stuff, the Oslo folks will save a few kroners by not needing a protective fence. Impressive as Storelgen is, he/she just doesn’t seem to be “that” much bigger than my favorite big moose of all time (Mac). I believe that maybe there are ways to get Mac to grow “up” a bit. I am not an artist and would never criticize Mac’s creator, but when I look at Mac I feel his legs are possibly a little stubby. If someone with more than four years of grade eight did the ciphering, figuring and arting,

I am sure we could gain a few leg inches and improve Macs already excellent athletic looks. Size matters! If Mac’s rack of antlers were scaled to his massive size, there might be enough of a margin there to reclaim the World’s Largest Moose crown, which would fit nicely on Mac’s head…if there was a crown. Maybe there should be; it would have to be fairly large and maybe there is a title to be had there, as well. Well, I checked the interwwweb and the world’s largest “crown” is a hotly contested title with a number of claims. But after I checked with Mr. Google again, I was delighted to discover there is no claim to having the “World’s Largest Crown… for a moose”. One way or another, I want Mac the Moose to regain his title…or any title.

Moose Javians may prefer the warmer spring and summer weather, but many are finding ways to embrace and enjoy activities throughout our Saskatchewan winter season. In Saskatchewan, we have a reputation for staying active during the winter months, as there are many recreation options available to us. The City of Moose Jaw Parks and Recreation Guide covers a variety of Community Association programs including free swimming and skating. There are a number of toboggan hills to enjoy. Outdoor rinks are popular places to skate and play hockey, and if you’re feeling adventurous you can even try a new winter sport, “Crokicurl” (curling and crokinole) – check it out at Elgin Park. Wakamow Valley is a winter wonderland where cross country skiers can enjoy groomed trails. Families can look forward to Winterfest coming up on February 16. Buffalo Pound Provincial Park also provides opportunities for cross country skiing and ice-fishing. On those cooler, blustery weather days, I enjoy turf time with my grandchildren at Yara Centre. The Public Library has many free indoor programs from Monday to Saturday for all age groups. The Western Development Museum is a great place to visit anytime. Heritage Day on February 9 is one of their many special programs that happen throughout the year. Moose Jaw takes pride in the many volunteers in our City.

It is with much consideration and mixed emotions that I have decided not to seek nomination leading into the next provincial election, and will be retiring from politics at the end of this term. It is a time of growth in Saskatchewan and I appreciate having been a small part of the progress this province has experienced over the past 11 years. Moose Jaw has seen improvements to our way of life as well, with new facilities and programs. The construction of the Dr. F. H. Wigmore Hospital has been a great advancement in health care for Moose Jaw and area. We have also had significant government investments including public housing, child care facilities, improvements to schools and seven Habitat for Humanity homes. I appreciate the privilege of representing Moose Jaw in the Saskatchewan Legislature. Thank you for that opportunity; and I will continue to work on your behalf until the next provincial election in 2020. Thank you for the encouraging comments, the visits and conversations over the years. Serving you, the constituents of Moose Jaw, has been the honour of my working life. Thank you for your support.

Funding worth $5.5 million by the federal and provincial governments for livestock production research includes the study of garlic as part of a livestock diet. Garlic has been used by some humans to promote better heart health and disease resistance, although some cynics believe the main benefit of garlic ingestion is keeping people with infectious diseases away. Evidence from studying sheep in Asia indicates garlic feed additives have beneficial impacts on digestion, for antimicrobials, as an anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and for immune system stimulation. A Saskatchewan Agriculture trial in 2017, using garlic in cattle minerals, discovered the smelly stuff may control flies. The average fly count fell from 158 to 67 flies on animals with garlic in their summer minerals. Animals with garlic in summer minerals ate more minerals — 145 grams per day compared with 45 grams for animals without garlic in their summer minerals. Evidence also indicates garlic feed additive may reduce methane gas emissions. A $119,000 study at Alberta’s Lakeland College will investigate use of garlic powder effects on mineral intake, fly repelling and cattle performance. A $348,000 study will consider anti-microbial bacteria use to prevent or treat respiratory disease in feedlot cattle. Measuring greenhouse gas emissions from beef cattle urine and dung in pastures seeded with non-bloat legumes will take $140,000. Johne’s Disease of the intestines has two studies — $80,000 to develop rapider

tests and $85,000 to compare and develop testing options. The effects of sulphates in water on beef feed intake and performance got $83,000. A $199,000 grant will study vaccines in swine that trigger immunity in piglets, vaccine to protect against intestinal bacteria Lawsonia intracellularis, and an oral vaccine to stimulate piglet immune systems. Another study for $210,000 tries to develop a next generation vaccine for PED (swine influenza). Bio-security measures to control pathogen growth in antibiotic free pigs takes $135,000 and $125,000 will be spent on infrared technologies to identify pigs at risk of transport stress and death loss, while $177,000 goes to enhance bio-security and welfare of livestock during transport. The potential of hybrid rye as a feed for finishing pigs take $59,000. In poultry, $150,000 will research a vaccine for avian flu and $127,000 will study processing camelina meal to increase Omega 3 content in eggs. Study in honey bees includes $195,000 to monitor and control American Foulbrood — a fatal bacteria. Using pulse proteins and canola oil emulsions in meat products will take $339,000. Development research on permeable biological barriers to remove ammonia and nitrate from run-off water takes $150,000. About $4.4 million of the grants were awarded to the University of Saskatchewan. Five partners put up $320,000 with the Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association highest at $181,000. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Fifty years of service Matthew Gourlie

The Moose Jaw Legion has been a second home for Bruce Hatley for a number of decades. Fifty years, in fact. The local veteran was one of more than 100 local Legion members who were honoured during the Royal Canadian Legion Moose Jaw Branch No. 59 Years of Service Awards on Wednesday. “It’s quite an honour to have that many years here in Moose Jaw at that branch,” said Hatley who was the attendee who had the most years of service that was honoured. Hatley enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War. “It was September of ‘43 when I started and by time I finished all of my training it was March of ‘45 and so I didn’t get overseas,” Hatley said. He spent time at 12 different stations in three years with RCAF before leaving the Forces in 1946. He worked for a decade before rejoining the Air Force in 1955 and served until December of 1975. He transferred to Moose Jaw in June of 1965 and has been in the city ever since. “I was fairly active in the Legion until the last year or so,” Hatley said. “There were a lot of friends I knew that were Legion members and my wife Shirley was very active in the Ladies Auxiliary here. We spent many good evenings here.” Hatley spent 14 years as house chairman in the branch in the 1980s and 1990s and also served in the colour party for 34 years. “The biggest job I had was the house chairman. There was a lot of work to keep this old building going,” he said. As Hatley looked around a full Legion auditorium, the building and the Legion itself felt like it was in good shape. After so many years of dedicated service, Hatley hopes the Royal Canadian Legion has a bright future for the coming generations of veterans. “I hope it survives for a good many more years,” he said. “It’s a place where so many of our veterans come back to join with old friends they had before, plus we have a lot of younger people here now. So hopefully it will be going for many years.”

Michelson not seeking re-election

Long-time Sask. Party MLA to leave office after 13 years representing Moose Jaw North Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

When Warren Michelson left his position as an ad executive at the Moose Jaw Times-Herald to run for the surging Saskatchewan Party in the 2007 election, little did he know it would kick off a decade-plus career as a public servant. Now, 11 years after that election victory and two others following it, Michelson is about to step aside as MLA for Moose Jaw North. Michelson announced Jan. 21 that he wouldn’t be seeking re-election in the 2020 Saskatchewan election, meaning his time representing citizens of Moose Jaw North is about to come to an end. “Just with the time I’ve spent and looking at another four years, it seems like the right time,” Michelson said. “I have so many great memories of being in the community and the people I’ve met; it’s hard to leave that kind of thing behind but I’m sure whoever comes after me will do a great job representing the party and the constituents.” Michelson’s time in office was characterized by a near constant community presence at events all over Moose Jaw,

regardless of whether the times were the most positive for the Sask Party or not. That engagement is something he said he’s going to miss. “Being a part of the community is really important to me, so I don’t think I’ll be stepping back completely,” Michelson said. “There are so many great people and organizations in our city that deserve support, so I’ll still try and get out there and be a part of it.” Moose Jaw in general has seen many changes and improvements in the last 11 years, many of which Michelson and his government played a role in bringing to fruition – Mosaic Place and YaraCentre, investment in public housing, child care facilities and improvements to schools. But the greatest advancement of all sits on the northeast edge of the city: the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Hospital, which opened in 2016. It was something Michelson had campaigned on, and to see it come to fruition was a major moment. “I think when I got the call that the Wigmore hospital was going ahead, that was pretty special,” Michelson said.

“But just being a part of the community, that’s something I’ll always remember and always have enjoyed being a part of.” That kind of government and personal investment paid off for Michelson in subsequent elections after 2007. He increased his margin of victory in both 2011 and 2016, winning what would be his final election by over 60 per cent of the vote. Michelson has served on a variety of committees as an MLA, including vice chair of the Public Accounts committee, co-chairing the Saskatchewan Construction Panel, serving on the Red Tape Reduction Committee, the Committee on the Economy, Chair of the Intergovernmental Affairs and Justice committee, and Legislative Secretary to the Minister of the Economy in regards to Manufacturing in the Province and was the provincial delegate for the Pacific Northwest Economic Region. As could be expected by that list alone, working as an MLA takes up a fair amount of one’s time. So what are the

Warren Michelson

current MLA’s plans once he becomes a former MLA? “I have a car I’ve been meaning to work on and there are some home improvements I’d like to get to, like putting up a new fence, so I’ll be busy,” Michelson said with a laugh. “Then there are the grandkids, I’ll be able to spend more time with them... but I’ll still be in the community, too, so I imagine there will always be something to do.”

McLeod seeking Sask. Party nomination in Moose Jaw North Matthew Gourlie

Tim McLeod felt the time was right to step out from behind the scenes with the Saskatchewan Party. The Moose Jaw lawyer announced Thursday he is seeking the Saskatchewan Party nomination for the constituency of Moose Jaw North for the 2020 provincial election. McLeod pursued the nomination after incumbent MLA Warren Michelson announced he wasn’t seeking re-election after first winning the seat in 2007. McLeod, one of the named partners in Chow McLeod Barristers & Solicitors along with David Chow, has been a trustee on the Prairie South School Board since 2012 and currently serves as Chair.

Leod has served on the Moose Jaw North Saskatchewan Party constituency board of directors, including three years as president. He has also represented the Constituency Board on the Provincial Council, where he provides input into policy and decision-making for the Saskatchewan Party. “As my career has slowly developed and grown, I have been slowly getting more and more involved in politics,” McLeod said. “Being a school board trustee was my first taste of elected politics and I enjoyed my time on the Prairie South School Board very much. I’ve been on Warren Michelson’s Board of Directors for Moose Jaw North for the last 10 years and I’ve very much enjoyed my time there. “I’ve had enough exposure now to the political arena that I recognize that my career choice pairs well with politics and I think I would be a suitable candidate if the people of Moose Jaw North will have me.” McLeod’s behind-the-scenes work should leave him wellversed in policy matters, McLeod said that he learned a lot over the years working closely with Michelson. “I have a ton of respect for Warren and how hard he works,” McLeod said. “He’s certainly a man on the ground who isn’t afraid to go door-to-door and hear from the people. I’ve admired his passion for the position that he’s held. He’s given me a lot of great tools to put in the tool box, if I were to ever be blessed with the opportunity

Tim McLeod is a local lawyer with experience as a school board trustee, as well as the Sask. Party’s constituency president. (submitted photograph) to sit in the same seat.” In order to try to secure the nomination and be approved by the party membership as the candidate, McLeod is hoping to get out in the community as much as possible and to meet the constituents of Moose Jaw North. “I try to be an open book,” McLeod said. “I want people to know about me.

Home decor business empowers female Vanier students Matthew Gourlie

When Vanier’s Entrepreneurship 30 students named their company Reclaimed Love Co. they did so because they were using reclaimed wood for their pallet art. In the end, the business -- which was run by six female students -- ended up reclaiming space for women in the industrial arts shop and left the group feeling empowered by what they learned and what they achieved. The six students logged 223 hours in the shop working with power tools to create their production line of wood ladders, hanging shelves, rope art, leash hooks, candle holders and signs. They sold 69 products and had total sales of $2,858.50. “A lot of people were really impressed that we were a female-run company and we were the ones doing woodworking,” said Alysa Beattie, co-president for Reclaimed Love Co. “That was really empowering for us, and our mentors were all female too, so that was really cool. “It was something that set us apart.” Reclaimed Love Co. was one of three Entrepreneurship 30 businesses that were created by Vanier students this year. They were the first Entrepreneurship 30 business to create and sell home decor. They attended eight craft and trade show events to sell their wares and they raised some eyebrows, particularly during one shift next to their classmates from Be The Change, a penny jewelry company that was made up of both boys and girls. “We were at William Grayson and it was Brooke (Buchko) and I that were working and we were beside Be The Change;

and at that time it was just Ben (Peterson) and Carter (Benallick) and there were some comments that it was funny that the girls were doing the carpentry and the boys were selling jewelry,” said Dessa Mohr, VP of production/environmental health and safety for Reclaimed Love Co. “It was all positive feedback.” The students had three hours of safety training before using the power tools in the Vanier shop and were supervised by teacher Karen Jordan while they were working in the shop. Beattie called Entrepreneurship 30 teacher Christa Lapointe and Jordan “amazing mentors” for the group. “Karen Jordan is one of the fiercest ladies you will ever meet,” said Kassidy Johnson, VP of information technologies for Reclaimed Love Co. When it was suggested by a panelist that woodwork was a non-traditional realm for women, the students said that having such strong mentors made them feel confident in working outside of their comfort zones. “We had a lot of influence from Mrs. Jordan. She is so, as you said, ‘non traditional’, but it’s amazing. We learned so much from her,” said Brooke Buchko, VP of finance for Reclaimed Love Co. Reclaimed Love Co. was one of three businesses, along with Be the Change and the 6th Annual Christmas Craft and Trade Show, that formed out Vanier’s Entrepreneurship class this year. Mon-

day, they liquidated their businesses and presented their final shareholder’s reports -- which ranged in length from 36-42 pages -- during their Board of Directors meeting at the school. The students presented to Lapointe and an eight-person panel of outside guests from the community and Junior Achievement. “As I’ve gone around and listened to a lot of these presentations around the province, every one of your companies would be a strong contender for Company of the Year,” said Katherine Gagne, vice president program development for Junior Achievement Saskatchewan, in addressing the students. “Your reports are exceptional. It’s a little bit of a testament to the strength of your teacher; she is exceptional.” Each company nominated students for Junior Achievement awards that will be announced towards the end of the school year. The 6th Annual Christmas Craft and Trade Show drew more than 900 people through the door for the one-day event that featured 64 vendors. They made a profit of $3,279.54. Be The Change’s line of necklaces, bracelets and key chains using discarded pennies earned them $1,470.16 of net income after they sold 65 bracelets and 177 items in total. Both of the start-ups had big ambitions in terms of sales, range of products and

in Reclaimed Love Co.’s case customization. Both companies found that as they got deeper into the process they had to be more realistic, but all three companies managed to sell a lot of products and make a sizable charitable donation. “I had an amazing group of students who really took on this challenge and ran with it. They were very supportive of each other and they were willing to learn and willing to put in the extra work. In each group, they were willing to help outside of their role and outside of their comfort zone too,” said Lapointe. “It wasn’t just about their success, it was about the success of the company. They all wanted to present well in the community and give back to the community. It was a neat group of students who were really self-motivated.” The Christmas Craft and Trade Show was able to donate $2,200 to the Riverside Mission, which is the most that has been donated by the students in the past four years. Their silver plate collection at the door raised $1,586.40. The rest of the donation came from their concession sales and $100 from the students. Reclaimed Love Co. donated 20 per cent of their net income, $347.65, and one of their ladders to Habitat for Humanity. Be The Change donated 20 per cent of their profit, $311.53, to the Elder Hope Foundation which raises money for water and solar power generators in Ethiopian communities. They were also able to send some of their pendants to Ethiopia as well.

Old magazine advertisements highlight changes in American lifestyle

by Ron Walter

Some time ago, a friend dropped off a bag of old newspapers and magazines which Yours Truly just looked over. One of the items was the December 1963 issue of Life Magazine, an American weekly publication known for great photos. Life ended its weekly run in 1978 as consumers saw less need for photos in a colour television

world. This edition was mostly devoted to the funeral of assassinated President John F. Kennedy, which rekindled memories of hope and despair. Why it took two months to cover the funeral reflects the pace of life before fax machines and computers. A striking aspect of this edition was the advertisements and how they show changes in lifestyle. Singer Sewing Centres had a two-page ad touting eight portable sewing machine models ranging from $59.50 to $329. The new electric portable models were an improvement on the foot-operated. Sewing machines were common household appliances

55 years ago, with Singer selling three million a year at peak. The ranks of stay-at-home moms had not yet been thinned by job opportunities and a shrinking standard of living that forced women into the work force. Jobs for women were still mostly restricted to waitress, housekeeping, retail clerk, secretary, nurse or teacher. In today’s busy world, few households have a sewing machine and little time to use one. The Singer ad indicated company plans to diversify from sewing with a pitch for a manual typewriter, another dinosaur appliance. A friend who teaches journalism in Alberta brings a typewriter to class once a year. Many of his journalism students don’t know what it is. A two-page spread for Columbia Records featuring numerous 33 rpm records came from a different era. Remember the Columbia Record Club? Buy one for 99 cents and have one sent to you every month helped build thousands of record collections. The revival of 33 rpm records, half a century later for their sound quality, proves a quality product never dies out. Foreshadowing the demise of 33 rpm records was a 3M pitch for a self-changing music tape system. The 33 successor is no longer in production. Among the car ads, a GMC body by Fisher promotion depicted a beautiful woman, white of course, wrapped in

a mink stole seated in the back of a luxury car. Wow, what images were supposed to be aroused in male buyers? Studebaker, if you remember that company, advertised the 1964 sedan, appearing much like the ordinary box like designs of today. GM introduced the 1964 Chevelle, a smaller model that became one of the most successful. Pontiac’s ad was a Grand Prix, a third year for the luxury model. Two ads out-of-place today feature cigarettes and a line of Zippo cigarette lighters from $3.50 to $175 for Christmas gifts. General Electric pushed electric appliances, while a competing ad promoted dishwashers along with electric washers and dryers. Wringer washers and clotheslines for drying were still common 55 years ago. A two-page Rexall ad pitching new Christmas ideas showed a $5.95 popcorn popper, a now outdated electric alarm clock, and 98 cent Winter Wonderland spray for Christmas trees. Several ads touted wristwatches, now made obsolete by smart phones. One featured the new battery-operated toothbrush. How our lifestyle has changed over 55 years! Ron Walter can be reached at

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Rochester man started “No Politics Day�

Bob Matthews of Rochester, New York had an excellent idea, one that would relieve citizens of the United States from all political activity for an entire 24hour period. He suggested that Feb. 1 be designated “No Politics Day� in light of the political rancor that has been present in daily Joyce Walter lives since certain Americans were elected to lead the United For Moose Jaw Express States. His idea for Feb. 1 stays away from mentioning names, but we all know the person he has identified as the source of all the political bad-mouthing that has taken over social and mainstream media. It does not stop in the normally accepted sleeping time, that period from midnight to 8 a.m. where it is expected most people, politicians included, let their brains and bodies rest for eight wonderful hours. Now two years later, Matthews is still advocating a politics-free day and it seems the gatherers of such odd-ball days have added No Politics Day to the list of abnormal

celebrations in February. I wonder if Canadians would embrace an NPD (No Politics Day) as easily as it has been accepted in the United States? We have Earned Days Off or EDOs on certain Fridays at many workplaces, some companies offer Dress Down Fridays where staff members pay into a charity fund to be able to dress in non-business-like attire for a day — so why wouldn’t we give a thumbs up to No Politics Day? This is not a personal slam against the politicians themselves, but more of a generic complaint about the topics they trumpet over and over, beating each to painful deaths and then use resuscitation to start all over again. So, let us join our friends down south and celebrate No Politics Day here in Canada on Feb 1. That means for a 24-hour period we won’t have to hear federal politicians talking endlessly about carbon tax, oil pipelines, Liberals versus Conservatives or NDP, the country’s deficit, immigration policies, east against west, retaliatory tariffs on our products and cannabis sales, legal or otherwise. In Saskatchewan, it will be a great day not having to hear all the pros and cons about the value of the Global Transportation Hub near Regina, the problems with wait

times in the health care system, excuses for why some Saskatchewan highways are not being repaired as quickly as residents would hope, and political pros and cons regarding rural trespassing laws. Here in Moose Jaw No Politics Day will mean we won’t have to listen to local politicians sniping at each other about city council decorum. Charges for sewer and water won’t be discussed nor will the long-term plans for infrastructure repair and whether a levy will be levied on the tax bill. No one will be listening if politicians dare individual self-congratulation for everything good coming to the city. And finally, perhaps for one day, poor old Mac will be left alone to graze without political interference in his daily routine — greeting tourists who don’t really care that there’s a moose in Norway that is larger and has a shiny coat. If Feb. 1 makes it through without any politics, it is somewhat ironic that the next day, Feb. 2, is dedicated to groundhogs who make predictions that are as intangible as some political promises.

Co-op accepting applications for community funding Going into its fifth year, the Co-Op Community Spaces Program is expecting to fund up to $2 million in capital projects in communities across Western Canada. Since the program was launched, there have been 88 community-led projects funded, $6.5 million to help protect, beautify and improve public spaces, such as parks, greenhouses and sports fields

“There’s no end to the great things that are being done across Western Canada to keep communities vibrant and growing,� said Vic Huard, Executive Vice-President of Strategy at Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL). “Co-op Community Spaces is another way for Co-ops to encourage this growth, give back and invest in places that bring us all together.�

Capital funding between $25,000 and $150,000 is available per project. Co-op invites registered nonprofit organizations, registered charities or community service co-operatives to apply online between Feb. 1 and March 1, 2019. Program funding categories include recreation, environmental conservation and urban agriculture.

FCL administers the giving program on behalf of more than 170 independent local co-ops across Western Canada that form the Co-operative Retailing System. To learn more about Co-op Community Spaces or apply for funding, visit

New branding campaign looks to draw on city’s “notorious� past From a reference on the Simpsons to being leveled in a Marvel comic to making international news with Mac the Moose of late, Moose Jaw has a knack for drawing attention. During the days of prohibition -- thanks to the link to Al Capone and some of the illicit activities that took place -- the city was notorious. A new marketing slogan “Moose Jaw is Canada’s most notorious city� was shared with the local business community last week with an eye towards launching a mar-

Matthew Gourlie keting campaign based around the slogan later in the spring. The campaign came about after a dozen local stakeholders got together to discuss rebranding. The campaign was all privately financed and won’t cost taxpayers a dime. As Jacki L’Heureux-Mason, executive director of Tourism Moose Jaw noted: “We’re always going to be The Friendly City, that never changes, I did a little google search, 150-plus places in North America use ‘The Friendly City’ as their slogan. While it’s not untrue, it’s not unique. We need to talk about what makes us Moose Jaw. What is it that sets us apart and calls to people.� When they set out for an idea, the group looked for something that would be a little edgy to spark a reaction. L’Heureux-Mason said they wanted to “create the con-

versation� about the city and what makes it interesting or appealing. She noted that the worldwide attention that Mac the Moose has received recently began by creating a conversation. The city’s previous rebranding of “Surprisingly Unexpected� in 2009 wasn’t warmly received and they know that “Notorious� won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but they are hoping that it’s a campaign that the public and business community can embrace and have fun with. While the ‘notorious’ theme draws on the prohibition era of Moose Jaw’s past and evokes images of Tommy Guns, flapper girls and gangsters, it also can have less elicit connotations. L’Heureux-Mason suggested that the city was also “notoriously friendly� and has notorious festivals and attractions.

New Saskatchewanderer wants to showcase the diversity of the province Matthew Gourlie

Once Zane Buchanan left Saskatchewan he grew to appreciate it even more. After graduating from high school in Balgonie, Buchanan left the province to pursue his dreams and further his education. Now, the 26 year old is returning home as the Saskatchewanderer for 2019 and is looking to showcase his home province with fresh eyes. “I don’t take anything for granted. The sunset I see every day, you don’t see anywhere else,â€? Buchanan said. “I don’t think I could do this job anywhere else. I don’t have that sense of pride for B.C. or Ontario or anywhere else. I loved living there, but it’s not really home.â€? Buchanan earned the Saskatchewanderer job and returned home before it was announced. He is excited about the job and the chance to return home and tell the stories of its people. “I missed the people,â€? he said. “Even when I worked in the service industry (in other cities) people would call me out ‘you’re not from here, you’re too nice.’ It was always weird, when I came home for Christmas people would be smiling and waving and I was wondering ‘do they know that I have this job? It’s supposed to be a secret.’ Then I realized that they’re just nice people who smile and wave to you. It’s something that I wasn’t used to again.â€? Buchanan moved to Victoria to study theatre and earned his diploma. He then moved to southern Ontario to get a bachelors degree in music theatre performance, but changed his mind before completing his degree. He lived in Toronto before moving to Vancouver to study broadcasting and communications and then accepted a job in that field back in Toronto. Living in big cities, he ran into a lot of preconceived notions of what Saskatchewan is from people who have never been here. “Having lived far away, my big thing is addressing stigmas that exist about our province -- particularly the fact that we’re not overly diverse or that we’re very staunchly conservative and redneck,â€? Buchanan said. “There are all these untrue stereotypes that exist about our province. I kind of want to address that and show the opposite. I want to challenge that and I want to do a lot of stuff about diversity.â€? During his application video, Buchanan said he was of a MĂŠtis background and he wants to try to tell stories that have maybe slipped between the cracks with previous Saskatchewanderers. “I already have a lot of indigenous immersion activities on the go that are planned and I want to shine a light on

that because it hasn’t been overly addressed by prior Wanderers. I really want to go further in depth with that and also I want to pioneer the exposure of LGBTQ and two-spirited communities because they are growing in Saskatchewan, even since I left,� Buchanan said. “I am a member of that community and I was not open about it until I left because I was kind of afraid, I guess. It’s kind of my mission to show that there’s nothing to be afraid about, the people here are very open-minded and welcoming to all kinds of people. That’s kind of my mission in this job, while promoting tourism, of course.� Buchanan wants to make it clear that he’s not pushing an agenda, but believes instead on reflecting the true diversity of the province. “I’m not pushing any liberal agenda here, that’s what I’m trying to say,� said Buchanan who noted that he’s trying to honour and reflect the complexion of the province with his content as it was

shown in the last provincial census. That hasn’t stopped some people online from engaging with him in the days following the announcement that he was the new Saskatchewanderer and his application video was uploaded. “I’ve gotten a couple of negative messages, but the thing that has really surprised me is that everyone that has messaged me, I’ve messaged back and it’s almost always resolved the issue,� Buchanan said. “They’ve been very responsive to my answers and said ‘I never saw it that way.’ And my friends from Ontario and B.C. are looking at these ‘online battles’ and they’re like ‘this is the most wholesome and kind exchange I’ve ever seen online as far as an online battle goes.’ That’s Saskatchewan for you. At the end of it we’re shaking hands and if we agree to disagree that’s cool.� Buchanan grew up on an acreage outside of White City and wants to provide a broad range of content that will appeal to the nearly 90,000 Saskatchewanderer so-

cial media followers, but he also knows he can’t please everyone. “I got one message from one person who said that they don’t choose to follow LBGTQ/two-spirited things and he said ‘all the best, I’m not going to follow you any more.’ That’s fine. I would love to change that human, but that’s not my job. My job isn’t to do that. My job is to showcase Saskatchewan, not my social or political agenda,� he said. “I’m not the focus. Saskatchewan is the focus. I’m just the voice.� The Saskatchewanderer program was created in 2011 as an inter-ministerial partnership that involves Tourism Saskatchewan and the Ministries of Agriculture, Trade and Export Development and Parks, Culture and Sport. Buchanan has been training with Kevin Dunn, the 2018 Wanderer, as he settles into the role. He has had a busy few weeks of meetings and has a couple of stories in the works and is going to hit the road to the end of the month with his dog Stedman in tow. “The freedom I’ve been given is out of this world. I can’t believe it,� he said. “I keep waiting for someone to say ‘Zane you can’t do that.’ But, so far, everyone has been really supportive about what I’ve been doing.� Buchanan is still organizing trips and planning his adventures, but he is planning a trip to Castle Butte before the end of January. You can follow Buchanan’s adventures by visiting www.saskatchewanderer. ca or by following him on Facebook at, Twitter @skwanderer, Instagram @saskatchewanderer or YouTube at com/user/skwandererofficial.

Aircraft leasing business appears to be high-flying growth opportunity The aircraft leasing business offers lucrative opportunities for investors in what is essentially a finance business where the operator buys and leases planes. Leasing aircraft takes less cash up front, less financing hassle, allows easier fleet expansion, earlier acquisition than placing orders and full ownership when the 10-year lease expires. Sudden higher interest rates might change the leasing outlook. This week Bizworld looks briefly at four aircraft leasing companies offering investors a chance to share in global air travel growth. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) estimates 42,000 new commercial aircraft will be needed by 2037. Five per cent will be regional jets, 73 per cent will be single aisle with 19 per cent wide bodied. Highest rate of growth will be in Asia, China, Middle East and Africa. Another ICAO statistic: forty per cent of the 29,000-commercial aircrafts in-use are leased. Aircraft life is 20 years before maintenance costs and new design makes them outdated. Irish-based Aercap Holdings has been around 40 years with 1,058 aircraft worth $42 billion US. New orders total 434 with Europe’s Airbus and Boeing models.

Business is 36 per cent from Asia/Pacific/Russia with 30 per cent from Europe, 14 per cent America and 10 per cent Africa/Middle East. Debt is a low three times equity. Smaller Fly Leasing of Ireland, 30 years old, has 112 Boeing and Airbus craft in the fleet worth $3.5 billion with $2 billion new deliveries on option. Fly leases 73 per cent of its fleet in Asia and China, with India the best customer at 17 per cent. Debt is leveraged to four times equity and 82 per cent of market value. Los Angeles-based Air Lease Corporation with 268 aircraft worth $7 billion has scheduled 90 deliveries in 2019 to build the fleet by 34 per cent. Air Lease craft are split between Airbus, Boeing and regional jet Embraer. Eighteen per cent of aircraft are in China with 25 per cent in the rest of Asia, 30 per cent in Europe. Debt is a more reasonable 2.5 times equity. Canadian aircraft company Chorus Aviation entered the aircraft leasing business in 2017, quickly building the fleet of Bombardier narrow-bodied jet and turboprop to 117 craft. With equity/debt injections by billionaire Canadian investor Prem Watsa and a recent $97 million from Air Canada, Chorus plans growth of leasing from

current 10 per cent of revenues. Ninety-per cent of Chorus revenues come from the airline flying and maintenance business. The company has a contract with Air Canada to operate connecting regional feeder routes through Voyageur Air and operates contracted and charter flights with Jazz Air. Debt is 4.7 times equity and 4.7 times cash flow. The dividend yields seven per cent. The only other dividend payer is Air Lease with a 1.4 per cent yield. All four – Chorus, $6.80; Air Lease, $37.51US; Aercap, $46.64US; and Fly Leasing, $10.99US – are well off their high price of the last year. Substantial prices drops came with the stock market pain from September to year end, although Chorus stock has been drifting down since last March.

Hadwin misses second career victory by single stroke Long wins PGA Desert Classic, Hadwin tied with Mickelson for second. Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

You can’t come much closer to winning a golf tournament than Adam Hadwin did at the PGA Desert Classic last weekend. The Moose Jaw-born competitor ended up taking home second place at the event, which took place at the PGA West Stadium Course in Palm Spring, Calif. Hadwin had a three stroke lead heading onto the back nine of the final round, finishing a single shot behind winner Adam Long and tied for second with Phil Mickelson at 24-under-par an earning of $637,200 in winnings. “It’s golf,” Hadwin told the Associated Press. “I made a bunch of putts all week and then honestly I was kind of battling it a little bit swing-wise, didn’t quite have it like I did the first three days… It just kind of flat-lined on me there in the last few.” Hadwin played consistently well all week, with rounds of 65 sandwiching a second-round 66 to send the Abbots-

birdie on 11, Hadwin bogeyed the par-3 13th and closed out the round with five straight pars for a 65. That was enough of an opening for Long, whose four birdies on the back – including a clutch three on the par-four 18th – were enough to overhaul Hadwin and Mickelson for the win. He picked up $1,062,000 for his efforts. The second-place showing was Hadwin’s fourth straight top-six finish in the event. He was second in 2017 after a third-round 59 at La Quinta Country Club and tied for third last year.

Fish set to compete at World Single Distance championships

Moose Jaw skater to take ice in 5,000 and 10,000 metre races Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

An already impressive speedskating season for Moose Jaw’s Graeme Fish is about to get more interesting. Fish, 21, will represent Canada in the 5,000 metres at the World Cup 5 series of races in Hamar, Norway from Feb. 1-5. This will be just a warm-up for the big show the following weekend – the World Single Distance Championships, taking place from Feb. 7-10 in Inzell, Germany. There, Fish will take the ice in both the 5,000 and 10,000m, with a goal of putting together the best showing possible, while gaining all the experience he can. “The World Single Distance races are pretty much the Olympics in a non-Olympic year, so this is pretty exciting,” Fish said prior to taking the ice for a practice session at the Oval in Calgary. “The best of the best in the world will be there and it’s going to be great to be able to face that kind of competition and see what I can do at that level.” Fish qualified for worlds with an impressive showing at the Canada Cup #2 qualifying race during the Jan. 4-7 weekend in Calgary. He finished second to Olympic silver medalist Ted-Jan Bloeman in the 5,000m before picking up a result that left him a bit surprised – a win in the 10,000m in a time of 13:14.68, which mean he would be skating for Canada in two distances. “I was really happy with how things went, especially in the 10,000 and it’s great to have a chance to skate that at worlds,” Fish said. “The goal is to keep improving and getting better and hopefully I can do the same there.” Fish has put together solid races in the 10,000m in the past. He finished third at World Cup 3 earlier this season, putting down a time of 13:20.56. He also finished 15th in the 5,000m at World Cup 4 the following week, crossing the line in 6:23.91. The key going forward for Fish is rather simple: continue the hard work – which includes two on-ice sessions a day, plus a myriad of other training in between – while continuing to find the consistency so important for distance speedskating. Based on his third-place showing, the latter is coming along rather well. Fish’s lap times varied less than a sec-

Now it’s a matter of getting a bit quicker and seeing what happens, with a rather huge goal in the near future. “The goal has always been to skate in the Olympics and that’s what I’m hoping to have a chance to do in three years,” Fish said. “I’m still young, so if it doesn’t happen this time I’ll have another chance, but the goal is to be there next time, for sure.”

Road Warriors make a statement in B.C. Matthew Gourlie

The Moose Jaw Warriors spent a dozen days on the road making a statement. The Warriors picked up 13 out of a possible 14 points during their seven-game road swing to the west coast and back. That run constitutes the best west coast trip in franchise history. The only blemish on the Warriors journey was a 2-1 overtime loss to the B.C. Division-leading Vancouver Giants. Impressive as it was, the Warriors run on the coast shouldn’t have been a shock. They’ve been exceptional away from home all season and their 18-32-0 road record is second only the juggernaut Prince Albert Raiders in the Western Hockey League. The Warriors concluded the trip with a 3-1 win over the Medicine Hat Tigers Saturday. Justin Almeida had two goals and an assist in the win, while Brayden Tracey had a goal and

an assist. Baxter Anderson replied for the Tigers. Brodan Salmond made 26 saves in goal for Moose Jaw. Friday, the Warriors beat the Edmonton Oil Kings 5-2 as Almeida and Tristin Langan each had a goal and an assist. Langan now has 38 goals and 79 points on the year. He is second in the league in both categories behind Portland’s Joachim Blichfeld. Tracey scored the game-winning goal as the Warriors scored three straight in the second period to erase a 1-0 deficit. Luke Ormsby and Daniil Stepanov also scored for Moose Jaw. Josh Williams and Conner McDonald scored for the Oil Kings. Adam Evanoff made 27 saves in the win. Tuesday the Warriors came back from a 2-0 deficit to beat the the Prince George Cougars 3-2 in overtime. Almeida, a former Cougar, scored 30 seconds into overtime to complete the

comeback. Almeida had 11 goals in 35 games heading into the trip, but was red hot on the West Coast scoring seven goals in the seven games. Jett Woo scored his 10th goal of the season to extend his point steak to

four games. Langan also scored and Josh Brook had a pair of assists. Ilijah Colina and Vladislav Mikhalchuk staked the Cougars to the lead. Evanoff made 23 saves. The trip was even more impressive given that they were without defenceman Daemon Hunt for the duration. Hunt is still listed as week-to-week with an upper-body injury. Veteran forward Tate Popple also remains out of the lineup after picking up a lower-body injury on New Year’s Eve. The Warriors (27-11-6-2) return to Mosaic Place Friday when they will host Medicine Hat.

Newkirk, Tracey ranked by NHL Central Scouting in midterm rankings Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw Minor Hockey product Reece Newkirk will likely get his shot at playing in the National Hockey League. Newkirk, currently a forward with the Portland Winterhawks in the Western Hockey League’s U.S. Division, is ranked 66th overall in the NHL Central Scouting Bureau’s midterm rankings of North America-based skaters. Considering how things Moose Jaw minor hockey product and Portland Winwent for 65th-ranked Cole terhawks forward Reece Newkirk is ranked 66th overFonstad of the Prince Al- all in the NHL Central Scouting midterm rankings. bert Raiders last season, that could translate into a fifth or sixth round selection when it comes to the 2019 NHL Entry Draft, which will take place June 21-22 in Vancouver. Fonstad was drafted in the fifth round, 128th overall by the Montreal Canadiens – one spot ahead of the Moose Jaw Warriors’ Justin Almeida, who was selected by the Pittsburgh Penguins. Newkirk is having an outstanding sophomore season with the Winterhawks, having scored 18 goals and 45 points in 45 games this season. He scored the first goal of the game and added an assist in Portland’s 6-0 win over Moose Jaw on Jan. 5. Forward Brayden Tracey is the lone Moose Jaw Warrior ranked by the CSB, sitting in 73rd spot. Tracey is currently the top-scoring rookie and 40th-ranked scorer overall in the WHL, with 17 goals and 43 points in 43 games. A former first-round pick in the WHL Draft, Tracey had a middling start to the season but took off at the beginning of November, putting together a 13-game point streak that saw him score six goals and 20 points while picking up at least a point in every game that month. He had the first hat trick of his career on Dec. 31 against the Brandon Wheat Kings. Former Warriors forward and current Wheat Kings scoring leader Luka Burzan is ranked 122nd in North America as a second-year draft eligible player. Burzan – who played a season and a half in Moose Jaw and put up 20 goals and 46 points in 108 games – was part of the deadline deal last season that brought standout defenceman Kale Clague to the Tribe. With Brandon this season, Burzan has 26 goals and 51 points in 43 games and is 17th in WHL scoring.

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

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

Roughriders look internally, hire Craig Dickenson as new head coach By Ryan McKenna THE CANADIAN PRESS





REGINA _ Jeremy O’Day didn’t have to look far to find a new head coach for the Saskatchewan Roughriders and ensure an easy transition with free agency starting in just over two weeks. The Riders hired special teams co-ordinator Craig Dickenson to a three-year deal as head coach on Friday. Dickenson said he told O’Day, the club’s new GM and vice-president of football operations, the opportunity came at the right time. Dickenson becomes the 47th head coach in the club’s history. He replaces Chris Jones, who resigned as Saskatchewan’s head coach/GM to join the NFL’s Cleveland Browns earlier this month. Due to a league-mandated football operations salary cap, Saskatchewan was handcuffed in retaining 80 per cent of its staff who are on one-year deals. O’Day said having most of his coaches under contract didn’t affect any candidates wanting to be the team’s head coach. Dickenson, 47, is a veteran CFL coach, having spent time with Calgary (twice), Montreal, Saskatchewan (twice), Winnipeg and Edmonton. The 2019 season will mark Dickenson’s 17th campaign in the CFL. He will also remain as the special teams co-ordinator, but will have to look for a new defensive co-ordinator to replace Jones. Dickenson said he can take his time on hiring a defensive co-ordinator and feels as though the Roughriders already have a good core group of coaches. O’Day said there was a lot of interest in the position and he looked both inside and outside the CFL for candidates. Dickenson, a first-time CFL head coach, takes over a team that went 12-6 in the regular season last year before being knocked out in the West Division semifinal by Winnipeg. He will potentially be seeking a new quarterback as starter Zach Collaros and backup Brandon Bridge are scheduled to become free agents. Edmonton’s Mike Reilly, Calgary’s Bo Levi Mitchell and Ottawa’s Trevor Harris top the list of big-name quarterbacks who could become CFL free agents. Dickenson said not inheriting a quarterback didn’t impact his decision to take the head coaching role as many other teams are in the same situation. Dickenson said being a head coach was never a career goal of his, but is a role he evolved into over the years. He will enter his fourth season of his second go-round with the Roughriders after spending the last three years as the special teams co-ordinator. He also worked with the Riders special teams during the 2011 and 2012 seasons. Being special teams co-ordinator prepared him well for the head coach opening, Dickenson said, as he deals with the entire team on a daily basis in both roles. He thinks it will make for an easy transition. Dickenson’s brother, Dave, is head coach with the Grey Cup-champion Calgary Stampeders. He said it’s going to be fun facing his brother, who he said was supportive during the Riders’ hiring process. © 2019 The Canadian Press

Main Event closes its door and looking for permanent home for unique Heritage Mural Sasha-Gay Lobban

Main Event, located at 33 High Street W. has closed its door for good but is looking for a home to place its one-ofa-kind, Heritage Mural.

chapter. They said however that they want to find a great home to place the Heritage Mural that is a prominent part of Moose Jaw’s history. Hauser says the mural has been an important part of the shop as it attracted many onlookers who were pleased to see a mural of its kind that was still in existence. “We are looking for a buyer for our Heritage Mural. It was commis-

sioned by Grant McLaughlin in 2010 and its an original piece of art. With the loss of the River Street Red Mural in 2014, it’s the only mural showing the very influential fashion trends of the roaring twenties.” “This is the only mural left that depicts the fashions of the 1920s. We’re hoping to find another business or private collector to re-home this beautiful piece. It

is a big part of our history as it reflects what people would’ve have been wearing at the time and the latest trends and styles in the fashion industry. It also depicts the many great seamstresses who were in Moose Jaw at the time. The tailors and seamstresses were the ones who were instrumental in bringing Moose Jaw to its feet in those times and this mural tells those stories. It is a custom-made, large and beautiful piece that I think should be seen by tourists and lots more people,” Hauser added. “We want to see it go somewhere that it can really be enjoyed.” Main Event thanks the community for its unwavering support since it was established. “Moose Jaw has treated us very well and we appreciate all the support we’ve received over the past nine (9) years,” Hauser said.

City’s handling of High Street given dishonourable national award Matthew Gourlie

The City of Moose Jaw won an award last week, but it's one they would rather not accept. The City of Moose Jaw’s "brutal customer service" earned them one of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business' annual Paperweight 'Awards' as part of their 10th Red Tape Awareness Week. The dishonours shine a light on the worst examples of red tape headaches for business owners across the country. Moose Jaw was cited for their lack of communication and response during the lengthy water main replacement on High Street in 2018. High Street was also the winner of CAA's Worst Roads Campaign for 2018. “Given that High Street West was voted the worst road in Saskatchewan in 2018, it’s not surprising the City of Moose Jaw is receiving a CFIB Paperweight Award for creating one of the worst red tape headaches for business owners with its extremely delayed water main replacement,” said Jennifer Henshaw, CFIB’s senior policy analyst for the Prairie region. “The city’s water main replacement project on High Street West was supposed to take three weeks, but mismanagement dragged it on for almost 10 months.” Curtis Temple from Scuba Guys Dive Shop believed that the roadwork took an irreversible toll on his business which closed on Jan. 19. He was far from the only business on High Street West that suffered. “It’s a shame that we are getting this award due to the City of Moose Jaw’s mismanagement and the lack of communication during the delayed water main replacement on High Street West. I wish [the City] was getting a better award instead of a Paperweight. As a small business owner, what the City did absolutely crippled our store. I hope they learn from this award and realize that their actions affect business owners, their livelihood and the community,” said Don McKenzie, owner of Water Vision Services, a High Street West

business that was impacted. Phase 2 of the project on High Street was supposed to be done before the end of 2017 per their contract with the contractor they hired, but the work dragged on through the winter. The City took over the project from the contractor in May and completed it three months later, but the damage had been done at that point. “The City’s lack of communication with the businesses located on High Street West left them completely frustrated,” Henshaw said. “Some business owners had their water shut off for weeks on-end without notice, and no notification was provided on when it would be turned back on. To add insult to injury, one business owner had his water and sewer lines disconnected for almost four months and yet continued to receive water bills.” The City said that they learned from the experience and starting in the spring of 2018, they worked with their Engineering consultants and contractors to take a more proactive approach to communication with property owners during the construction season. “We appreciate the issues faced by High Street property owners and at our first opportunity in May of 2018 the City of Moose Jaw took over the project from the initial contractors. We ensured project completion while executing frequent, consistent communication to area property owners and residents regarding the construction timeline," said Mayor Fraser Tolmie in a statement. "While the CFIB focuses time and effort on looking back, the City of Moose Jaw is focused on further refining our construction and communication practices as we continue to address repairing and replacing our City’s long-ignored infrastructure.” The CFIB is Canada’s largest association of small and medium-sized businesses with 110,000 members, including 5,250 in Saskatchewan, across every industry and region. Other "winners" included: the Town

of Smithers, B.C. for a third year running; British Columbia’s Community Benefits Agreement; The City of Toronto; Quebec’s Liquor, Racing and Gaming Authority; Nova Scotia’s Occupational Health and Safety Division; The Government of Canada for its user-un-friendly websites; Health Canada for its lack of clarity on the cannabis

rules and Quebec’s Cannabis Regulation Act, which prohibited one craft brewer from using the word “cannabis” on the labels of his previously legal cannabis-flavoured beer. At the same time Quebec’s liquor board said that the brewer they must put “cannabis” on their labels.

Friend Friend want to write you a song Matthew Gourlie

Dustan Hlady and his band Friend Friend have a lot on their plates these days. However, the Moose Jaw band found time to write and record a five-song EP “Not Particularly Dignified or Newsworthy� and they’re willing to write a song for you -- and about you -- if you enter their colouring contest. “We started a colouring contest on our Facebook and our Instagram. You can print off the picture and colour it. Then tag us on Instagram or put it on our Facebook wall and we’ll write a song about you based on your social media profile,� said Hlady. “That’s part of our promotion. We’ve had a couple of people so far.� The Moose Jaw four-piece are known for some creative marketing ideas and the new initiative is no different. The band features Dustan Hlady, Brian Capstick, Carrie Hlady and Matt Froese and are closing in on a decade together. Friend Friend will have an album release show with Riviere and Drake Mark on Feb. 23 at Chysalis at 7 p.m. While Friend Friend are not pressing physical copies of the album, it will be available that day. Riviere, Froese’s solo project, will also be releasing his album “Trees� the same night. “The album will be available anywhere you get music: it will be on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube. Any way that a person listens to music, it will be there. We’re not doing physical copies, but we’re doing a little zine that has the song lyrics and explains the stories behind the songs and stuff,� Hlady said. “Drake Mark is opening for us and he’s really fun.

Friend Friend -- Brian Capstick, back left, Carrie Hlady, Dustan Hlady, front left, and Matt Froese -will release “Not Particularly Dignified or Newsworthy� on Feb. 23 with a show at Chysalis.

He’s got some new music too.� They had plans on a much more elaborate event -including making a mockumentary to go along with it -- but decided to scrap that plan for the time being. “We’re sponsoring a refugee family and I’m trying to finish this movie I made, plus there’s work and family and stuff,� Hlady said. “I just had to say no to something.� He said the feature-length film he is working on is about 80 per cent completed principal photography and he is hoping to have it edited and completed in

June in time to send it off to festivals. Hlady and his wife Carrie are also helping two newcomer families settle in the city. “They arrived about a week before Christmas,� Hlady said. “We’re trying to help them out with schools and find them a church to go to because they go to church, helping them get checked out at the clinic, things like that.� Family life and home were two of the things that inspired Hlady during the writing of “Not Particularly Dignified or Newsworthy�. “It’s about personal stuff and like I think all five songs are rooted in being prairie-ish. There’s a story song called Prairie Girl. There’s a song about when I lived in New York and really missed the prairies,� Hlady explained. “There’s a song that I wrote about having our first son. Things were touch-and-go and I was at the hospital for days and days. I was sleep-deprived and fell asleep in a chair and I had a dream that I was singing this song to my son.� When he woke up Hlady got the melody and the words to the chorus from his dream down and that became the chorus for “We’ll All Stick Together.� Froese produced the album and Hlady was enthusiastic in his praise for the job he does working on their songs. “He’s a perfectionist. He has a good ear and he has a really good sense of different styles of music,� Hlady said. “He’s really educated and he’ll say ‘oh this is what you’re going for’, even if you don’t really know what you’re going for.�

Moose Jaw’s Partners against Violence Committee brings together a number of local service agencies, as well as local RCMP and Moose Jaw Police to work towards building a safer community for all.

Little Eyes are Watching‌ Each year, millions of children in Canada are exposed to violence in their homes, their schools, their neighbourhoods, and through the media. (TV shows, movies, video games, music videos and lyrics, etc.) This exposure to violence refers to seeing, hearing, being told about, or even just being aware of the violence occurring. Depending on the age of a child, exposure to violence can have different effects. Some facts to consider are: • Children are present during at least 80% of spousal abuse; • Violent behaviour is learned. As a result, children who witness violence may be more likely to become   Tenders are hereby invited for cash lease of the following land: NE 34-15-25 W2 Ext. 15, S/P #166169717 (consisting of 145.68 acres as shown on land titles records) 1.

Agency: Deadly California fire caused by homeowner equipment SACRAMENTO, Calif. _ In a long-awaited report, state investigators said Thursday that a 2017 wildfire that killed 22 people in Northern California wine country was caused by a private electrical system, not equipment of embattled Pacific Gas & Electric Co. The state’s firefighting agency concluded that the fire started next to a residence. The agency did not find any violations of state law. ``During my investigation, I eliminated all other causes for the Tubbs Fire, with the exception of an electrical caused fire originating from an unknown

By Don Thompson | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS event affecting privately owned conductor or equipment,’’wrote CalFire Battalion Chief John Martinez. Details about the property were blacked out in the report. The fire was one of more than 170 that torched the state in October 2017. It destroyed more than 5,600 structures over more than 57 square miles (148 sq. kilometres) in Sonoma and Napa counties. The cause came as a relief to PG&E, which plans to file for bankruptcy protection next week, citing billions of dollars in potential damages and lawsuits

it faces from other deadly wildfires for which it has been determined to be at fault. One witness reported seeing a transformer explode. Another reported seeing the fire approach a PG& E power pole. One witness, Charlie Brown Jr. of Calistoga, said the electrical wiring leading from the property where investigators concluded the fire started had not been used in years. © 2019 The Canadian Press


Man says emotional support alligator helps his depression YORK HAVEN, Pa. _ A Pennsylvania man says his emotional support alligator helps him deal with his depression. Joie Henney, 65, said his registered emotional support animal named Wally likes to snuggle and give hugs, despite being a 5-foot-long alligator. The York Haven man said he received approval from his doctor to use Wally as his emotional support animal after not wanting to go on medication for depression, he told .

``I had Wally, and when I came home and was around him, it was all OK,’’ he said. ``My doctor knew about Wally and figured it works, so why not?’’ Wally was rescued from outside Orlando at 14 months old and is still growing; Henney said Wally could be 16 feet long one day. Henney says Wally eats chicken wings and shares an indoor plastic pond with a smaller rescue alligator named Scrappy. Wally, who turns 4 this year, is a big teddy bear, in Henney’s words. The

cold-blooded reptile likes to rest his snout on Henney’s, and ``he likes to give hugs,’’ he said. The alligator has never bitten anyone and is even afraid of cats, according to Henney. Henney acknowledged that Wally is still a dangerous wild animal and could probably tear his arm off, but says he’s never been afraid of him. Henney’s background also indicates a comfort with creatures like Wally. He hosted a show called ``Joie Henney’s

Outdoors’’ on ESPN Outdoors from 1989 to 2000, according to the York Daily Record . Henney frequently takes Wally out for meet-and-greets at places like senior centres and minor-league baseball games. ``He’s just like a dog,’’ Henney told a woman at a recent outing to a senior centre. ``He wants to be loved and petted.’’ © 2019 The Canadian Press


Prince Charles’ charity stops accepting Huawei donations LONDON _ A charity founded by Britain’s Prince Charles said Thursday it’s not accepting any more donations from Huawei, the latest setback for the Chinese telecom giant as it battles allegations it’s a cybersecurity risk. Huawei, the world’s biggest producer of telecom network gear, is facing increasing scrutiny in Europe over concerns about its technology. Huawei has been expected to play a key role in the development of next-generation mobile networks in Europe, the company’s biggest market outside China,

but some countries are starting to rethink its involvement. ``At present, we are not accepting new donations from Huawei in light of public concerns,’’ the Prince’s Trust said in a statement. The trust, which was established in 1976 to help disadvantaged young people, said any future donations will be reviewed by its ethical fundraising committee. Huawei is listed as one of the trust’s ``patrons’’ and a technology sector partner on its website. The trust said it received 490,000 pounds ($638,000) from the company since

2007. Huawei said it was disappointed. ``We regret that decisions of this sort are being taken as a result of ill-informed and unfounded discourse about Huawei,’’ it said. Tensions between China and the U.S. and its Western allies spiked last month after Canada arrested Huawei’s chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, on a U.S. extradition request alleging she lied to banks about trade with Iran. Polish authorities arrested a Huawei sales director along with a Polish

cybersecurity expert this month on charges of spying for China, fueling espionage concerns. Last week, Oxford University said it was suspending research grants and donations from Huawei. Britain’s defence secretary and intelligence chief have both voiced concerns about the company’s involvement in 5G networks. © 2019 The Canadian Press


Banff’s Sunshine ski resort accepts site guidelines despite grave concerns BANFF, Alta. _ An internationally known ski resort in Banff National Park has signed a new lease that includes a plan for future growth _ despite having grave concerns with it. The new site guidelines for Sunshine Village provide a framework for future use, growth and development at the resort until 2060. A letter from Michael Nadler, Parks Canada’s acting chief executive, had informed the resort it could either accept the guidelines or lose its lease to operate. Sunshine Village was the last ski area in the mountain parks without the guidelines that allow for managed growth while protecting the environment. The guidelines, which were released online by Sunshine, would establish permanent limits to growth. They would allow the resort to have up to 8,500 visitors at a time _ up from 6,500 _ and build an additional 3,650 square metres of commercial space, add up to eight new ski lifts and develop up to 80

hectares of new ski terrain. The guidelines remove 61 hectares with high ecological value from the lease. Parks Canada rejected Sunshine’s parking proposal, which included a 750-space satellite parking lot along the resort’s access road, but the guidelines allow for more transportation and parking through a combination of transit and a parking structure of ``no pre-determined size’’ at the base of the resort. Officials with Parks Canada said in a statement Thursday that they are still finalizing the guidelines and will release them publicly in the near future. ``Parks Canada continues to be committed to downhill skiing within the national parks,’’ said the email. ``The Sunshine Village Ski area site guidelines will provide long-term predictability for the operator, while ensuring that ecological integrity, including the protection of wildlife, is the first priority for decision-making.’’

$12 million crop research projects include new markets, disease control By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS Joint federal/provincial announcement of $12 million for 44 projects in crop research has focused on adding value to crops and disease protection. Among canola projects, $360,000 funds research into molecular basis for resistance to sclerotinia, while $247,000 will research extraction of vitamins and bio-actives from canola crush byproduct. A $357,000 project will work on a gene editing program to improve canola resistance to club root. And $519,000 goes to developing practical oilseed products including canola sugar, canola ethanol and hull fuel. Under cereals, one $99,000 project will try to develop a triticale variety with wheat-like baking qualities. A $373,000 project will work on novel technologies for controlling herbicide resistant wild oats in wheat, while $269,000 will go to develop a line of spring wheat carrying a hairy glaume trait for midge resistance.

TRINITY UNITED CHURCH 277 Iroquois St W Moose Jaw, SK Next Service: February 3, 10:30am Fred Mathieson

The breeding of milling oat varieties with better quality and disease resistance will cost $1.25 million. Chickpea research involves $360,000 to work on emulsifier functions to standardize the process and develop new food products. A $433,000 project seeks to use wild chickpea traits to improve yield of cultivated chickpeas. A $115,000 project seeks to increase value of wrinkled peas by extracting proteins and starches while a $275,000 plan seeks genetic improvement of protein and seed quality in peas. A $2.4 million project on yellow peas will work on a three per cent increase in protein content to 26 per cent, improved amino acid profile and more rapid genomic tools to help speed use of these benefits. Considering hemp protein and oil powders for functional food use will take $200,000, while value added processing of protein and starch from canary seed gets $200,000. And $570,000 funds a broad defence protecting crops that have no genetic or chemical resistance against aschochyta blight and aphanomyces root rot. Federal and provincial funds were augmented with $3.6 million from seven partners that included Western Grains Foundation, $1.75 million; Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission, $604,000; and the Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission, $550,000. Most of the funds stay in Saskatchewan, with $8.4 million to the University of Saskatchewan alone and $2.1 million to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada researchers. Of the $12 million, pulse crops received $5.7 million with $2.9 million for oilseeds and $2 million for cereals. Ron Walter can be reached at

On the Front Porch

by Wanda Smith

Open Door Policy Of all the lessons I’ve learned from my mom, I would say “hospitality” would be the most impactful in my life. I saw her open her door to many people; friends, family, acquaintances, neighbors and strangers. She would always offer a hot or cold drink and often had some kind of sweet to serve; whether she felt like it or not. Hundreds of cinnamon buns were enjoyed in our home. Not only did Mom offer food and a beverage, she also had many overnight guests that enjoyed a clean room with fresh sheets and towels. Our home was by no means a castle; there were many dated features including the old tub that had lost its shine and the outdated turquoise tiles on the walls. Mom did her best with what she had but I have no doubt she desired something more up to date at times. I can say one thing though: my mom did her best to keep her home clean and tidy. This was a strength that came in handy many times when she had unexpected guests. As I sat in the hairdresser’s chair the other day, we were commenting on how hospitality has waned so much in our lifetime. Sad to say, it has become a lost “art”, if you will. I think it’s time to resurrect this gift to the world around us. I’m reminded of the scripture Matthew 10:42, “And if you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of my followers, you will surely be rewarded.” I like what Bailey Suzio, blogger at the, says: “Entertaining makes me feel proud as I show off my accomplishments. Hospitality humbly opens the door and invites others into my life, warts and all. Entertaining is about me. Hospitality is about showing them the love of God.” Hospitality is not about having the latest decor, the newest home or the best food. Hospitality is not about perfection. Hospitality is about inviting someone to sit around your (rickety) table or on your (worn out) leather couch. Hospitality is about listening to others; caring about their needs and their lives. Hospitality is about extending yourself to selflessly serving others. It’s about adding a little water to the soup or making a simple cup of tea. Hospitality is just that; extending ourselves beyond when we feel like it or when our cupboards aren’t full. Dr. Caroline Leaf, cognitive neuroscientist, suggests “Our brain structures and brain circuitry are specifically geared to relating with each other, feeling empathy, sharing. In fact, interconnections and interrelatedness are fundamental laws of brain function.” So much hinges on our relationships or lack thereof. Julie Sanders suggests: “A life of welcome has nothing to do with riches or comfort. People today are starved for the ministry of hospitality.” Some of my fondest memories as a child would be when we’d show up unannounced at my parents’ friends where Jim and Sylvia would give a big “hi” and a hug and get the popcorn popping on the stove... or when we’d be invited over to the “castle” after church where Norm and Teena would treat us like we were royalty. Norm would tease Sis and me while Teena showed by example how to serve up delicious food with love and grace. These examples are part of my rich heritage; and I find myself desiring to leave this legacy with my kids. Serving others makes a truly fulfilling life. Let’s be intentional to extend ourselves to those around us. “Be hospitable to one another without grumbling.” 1 Peter 4:9

BARRY Calvin Douglas Barry, aged 91 years of Moose Jaw, SK passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 17th, 2019. Calvin was born in Tuxford, SK on July 15th, 1927. He was a successful entrepreneur in the farming industry, and a man who never took no for an answer. He lied about his age to enlist in World War II but luckily for his wife, he did not go to the front lines. Calvin married Audrey Allison in October 1949. To diversify, he crop dusted and flew a little yellow plane over the Saskatchewan fields, and raised thousands of turkeys. He never complained, not ever. His favourite pastimes were hunting, fishing, and spending time in Arizona. Before solving a problem, his grandkids would say WWCBD “what would Cal Barry do?”. The man was a legend. May we all take a note from Cal’s book. Ask for what you want, don’t take crumbs, and appreciate life. Cal had a special bond with his sons-in-law and the joke was they were the sons Audrey could not give him. Calvin is survived by his wife, Audrey; daughters, Deb and Patti and their families – 4 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren; brother Wray; sister-in-law, Helen; as well as many nieces and nephews, cousins and friends. In keeping with Calvin’s wishes, a Private Family Service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Calvin’s name may be made to the WaWa Patient Travel Fund, 2065 Hamilton St, Regina, SK S4P 2E1. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Calvin Gammel, Funeral Director 306-693-4550



Charles Millar Hackney passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 20th, 2019 at Regency Manor care home in Central Butte, SK. He was the youngest of eight children and was predeceased by his 4 sisters: Margaret, Helen, Jean, and Millicent; and 3 brothers: Mac, George and Doug. Millar leaves to mourn his loving wife of 57 years, Marian Hackney; and his sons, Darrell (Diane) Hackney and Ken Hackney. He will also be missed by his grandchildren: Curtis (Charla), Lisa and Adam; great-grandchildren: Keaton, Alisha and Dylan; as well as several nieces, nephews and other family members. Millar was born in Brownlee, SK in 1935 and as the son of a Presbyterian minister, lived in several towns throughout Saskatchewan including Togo and Pennant. His family eventually moved to Riverhurst, SK in 1950 where Millar continued to live for the rest of life. Millar attended Riverhurst High School where he met his future wife Marian. After completing high school, he worked at a variety of jobs including transport driver, elevator agent and mechanic. He also worked for many years as a heavy machinery operator with Pomeroy Construction. Millar and Marian were married in 1961 and started farming the same year. Millar remained on the farm until 2008, when he retired and moved to Riverhurst. He was always an active member of the Riverhurst community and was heavily involved in the local Lion’s Club, Rec. Board, Park Board, School Board and minor sports. He was particularly proud of his involvement in the approval and construction of the Rusty’s Coulee Marina at Palliser Park. In recognition of his years of volunteerism, Millar was awarded the Diamond Jubilee Medal for distinguished service to his community in 2012. Millar was an avid golfer and also enjoyed hunting, fishing and travelling. He will be fondly remembered for his friendly, fun-loving personality and willingness to help out when needed. A Celebration of Millar’s Life will be held on Friday, February 22nd, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. in the Riverhurst Community Hall. As an expression of sympathy, donations in Millar’s name may be made to Regency Manor Auxiliary, P.O. Box 40, Central Butte, SK SOH OTO. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Calvin Gammel, Funeral Director 306693-4550

Red meat marketsBy could sizzle for Canada this year Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express Canadian beef and pork proEXPRESS ducers could be looking at a very profitable year in 2019, according to Farm Credit Canada economists. Last year’s strong demand appears to continue, with trade and disease issues possibly presenting opportunity. After a period of stable beef prices, Canada and the United States entered the year with substantial beef supplies. Record volumes are being exported without the CPTPP Trans-Pacific trade deal in effect. That trade deal opens


the market for Canadian red meat into the lucrative Japanese market. as well as several other Asian countries. Canada could triple beef exports to Japan from $100 million to $300 million, as tariffs of 50 per cent and 38.5 per cent on frozen and fresh beef come down. According to Saskatchewan Agriculture, average feeder steer prices for the week ended Jan. 9 were down four per cent year over year. Hog producers, also facing strong North American supplies, are poised to benefit temporarily from the African swine fever epidemic in China. Loss of one per cent of the hog herd in China to this

fever would require a 33 per cent increase in pork meat imports — or 80 million pounds. Canada exported four million pounds of pork, offal and fat to China in 2017 out of 243 million pounds imported. China has been building hog production towards the goal of self-sufficiency so this market opportunity should be temporary until the swine fever is controlled. Average Saskatchewan hog prices for the week ended Jan. 9 were $1.307 a pound, down from $1.525 a year ago. Ron Walter can be reached at

Food agency expands recall of noodle dishes over undeclared egg ingredient OTTAWA _ The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is expanding a recall of noodle dishes that may contain egg and could cause life-threatening allergic reactions. It says a warning issued on Jan. 11 for certain Ottogi brand noodle products has been updated because of egg not listed on the label.


brushes designed and printed by Moose Jaw Express

It warns that people with egg sensitivities should not eat the products, which include several instant ramen and noodle dishes under the Ottogi name. The recall comes after a food safety investigation by the CFIA, which says it is making sure that industry removes the recalled products from the marketplace.

It says they were sold in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Quebec, but may have been distributed in other provinces and territories. There haven’t been any reported reactions linked to the products. © 2019 The Canadian Press

Moose Jaw pharmacist found guilty of professional misconduct A Moose Jaw pharmacist has been found guilty of professional misconduct after receiving over $700,000 in gifts from a generic drug manufacturer. Former Co-op manager Niklas Voelk pleaded guilty to professional misconduct and has been ordered to pay a $5,000 fine and $14,000 in investigation and hearing costs to his licensing body, Saskatchewan College of Pharmacy Professionals (SCPP) for accepting gifts from generic drug manufacturers, Pharmascience. Between 2005 and 2013, while he was the pharmacy manager of the Moose Jaw Co-op Pharmacy, Voelk accepted and received prepaid Visa cards, retail gift cards and American Express certificates. SCPP says these gifts and monies were significantly large and exceeded any nominal items.

Voelk did not report or account the gifts to Moose Jaw Co-op until September 2015. The issue came to light when Moose Jaw Co-op received a letter on Aug. 31, 2015, from Canada Revenue Agency. The letter was part of an investigation conducted by Canada Revenue Agency regarding gift cards, travel vouchers and other incentives provided by generic drug manufacturers to pharmacists. On Sept. 25, 2015, Voelk and his accountant, met with the Moose Jaw Co-op manager. Subsequently, Voelk admitted that he had been accepting the substantial gifts from Pharmascience. His employment was terminated a month later. Voelk has until December 1 to pay the fine and fees or risks having his license to practice suspended.
