A new Community Recovery Team (CRT) in Moose Jaw has received government funding, enabling them to facilitate more intensive supports for people living with complex, persistent mental health challenges. The announcement was made in Moose Jaw on Wednesday, February 13, as the Government of Saskatchewan has dedicated $4.2 million in targeted funding to launch a team in Moose Jaw and seven other communities. “Community Recovery Teams support their clients in a way that is tailored to their individual needs, bringing care to them – out in the community,” said Moose Jaw Wakamow MLA Greg Lawrence. “This is an important step forward in our government’s commitment to improving mental health services.” Community Recovery Teams (CRTs) use a holistic, team-based approach to help clients manage symptoms, avoid hospitalization, achieve their individual goals, and thrive in the community. The 10-person Moose Jaw CRT includes an Assessor Coordinator, two Occupational Therapists, five Community Mental Health Nurses and two Mental Health Therapists. There are also multidisciplinary activities with psychiatrists, an adult psychologist, adult services and counsellors who are part of Mental Health and Addictions Services in Moose Jaw. “This new funding has enabled us to expand the team in Moose Jaw, which was already operating in this capacity. It also allowed us to make these specialized services available to more people in our com-

It also provides community supports that assist clients in managing their recovery in community settings. The Community Recovery Team project will ensure that no matter where in the province, the individuals that are in greatest need will receive similar care,” Gilbert emphasized. CRTs support Saskatchewan’s Mental Health and Addictions Action Plan and are also being launched in Regina, Prince Albert, North Battleford, Swift Current, Weyburn, Yorkton, and Saskatoon. Funding for this comes from the Canada-Saskatchewan Bilateral Funding Agreement announced in January 2017. The federal government is providing Saskatchewan with close to $350 million over 10 years for targeted incremental investments in home and community care, and mental health and addiction services.

Warren Michelson, MLA

The Honourable Gene Makowsky, Minister of Parks, Culture and Sport has declared February 18th - 24th, 2019 as Heritage Week in Saskatchewan. The week aims to celebrate and raise awareness about the province’s unique past, and how that impacts our future as individuals and as a province. Our heritage goes far beyond old buildings, history books and dusty articles from the past. Our heritage is so important that we have a Crown agency, the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation, to foster conservation of heritage resources for the benefit of present and future generations. The Foundation invests in communities across the province through heritage property grant programs. The Heritage Fair program is one of the initiatives of Heritage Saskatchewan, a non-profit organization funded through SaskCulture Inc. Participating as a judge and presenting an award at the annual Moose Jaw Heritage Fair is always a rewarding experience. The Grade 4 to 8 students put a lot of thought, effort and enthusiasm into their projects. They choose their own topic related to history or culture, often with a personal connection, and put together a visual display, written report and oral presentation. These students have grasped the benefit of celebrating heritage. Heritage Saskatchewan sees heritage as a valued and dynamic legacy that contributes to our sense of identity, creates an understanding of our past, is used to build communities in the present, and informs our choices for

the future. Heritage goes beyond past history to being “Living Heritage” which builds an inclusive, cohesive, vibrant and sustainable heritage community. Another important initiative is the Saskatchewan Index of Wellbeing (SIW). This is a resource that expands our understanding of how well our communities and citizens are faring beyond the economic measures of the Gross Domestic Product. The SIW measures eight areas such as time use, democratic engagement, education, and community vitality, that allow us to monitor changes in quality of life and wellbeing for our citizens, and provides community-based organizations, all levels of government, businesses and citizens with the evidence required to inform policies, decisions and actions. Heritage Saskatchewan is excited about the “2019 Heritage Forum” happening this Thursday in Regina, with some very notable speakers. The focus will be on factors impacting wellbeing in Saskatchewan. We see dedicated local organizations and individuals improving our quality of life through heritage initiatives. Our local museums, the Western Development Museum, the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery, and Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village, have found very creative ways to enrich our lives through the preservation of historical artifacts. The Moose Jaw Heritage Advisory Committee provides the City with policy advice and recommendations on matters regarding our heritage properties. We are fortunate to have retained many distinct heritage features in our city. Entities that have become part of the fabric of our community like the Festival of Words, long-serving service groups, the ANAVETS and the Royal Canadian Legion, and even our Moose Jaw and District Sports Hall of Fame provide heritage experiences that add colour to our lives, and influence our future for the good. While we celebrate Heritage Week this week, I would encourage you to mark May 9 on your calendar as you’ll see an inspiring example of the benefits of celebrating heritage if you stop by the Heritage Fair at the Western Development Museum.

Bureaucracy causing headaches for Canadian farmers AGRIMART

According to a Canadian EXPRESS Federation of Independent Business report, confusing forms, bad customer service and excessive government regulations are leaving 69 per cent of Canadian farmers questioning whether their children should take over the farm or start their own business. Excessive bureaucracy is creating a more burdensome concern for farmers with all the government’s requirements to fill out more and more forms. Marilyn Braun-Pollon, CFIB’s vice-president for agri-business said, “With 41 per cent of farmers planning to retire in the next 10 years, we are seeing producers asking the big question – will the next generation want to take on the ever-mounting burden of red tape?” “Red tape can show up in many ways. For example, CFIB recommended, for years, that Statistics Canada should not send out surveys to farmers during peak periods. In fact, 92 per cent of farmers agree that there should be a black-out of surveys during their busiest times. Yet, surveys are still required during spring seeding,” added

Braun-Pollon. “While governments are great at celebrating agriculture and have taken some steps to try to curb the growth of red tape at the farm gate, it is time they make meaningful changes so farmers feel they are being heard instead of unnecessarily over-regulated.” Canada Revenue Agency (59 per cent), the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (46 per cent), environmental regulations (45 per cent) and Statistics Canada (40 per cent) were voted as the most burdensome agencies and regulations by farmers. Given the Government of Saskatchewan’s strong leadership and commitment to reducing unnecessary red tape, Saskatchewan is making headway. The ‘Help Cut Red Tape’ web page, will be an easy way for businesses and residents to submit their red tape headaches directly to the government and have them addressed.” The hope is that farmers will see tangible results following a federal government’s announcement to remove trade barriers within Canada, including barriers to interprovincial trade in agri-food products by reducing duplication of forms, both federal and provincial, especially those related to meat inspection.

Teachers and staff lauded for efforts during Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week Matthew Gourlie

Staff and teachers at local schools go above and beyond the scope of their job descriptions on a regular basis. It was Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week in Saskatchewan last week and it was fitting — albeit unfortunate — that the week started with the school community at King George pitching in Sunday after a flood to make sure that the school was immaculate by the time the students arrived on Monday morning. Several inches of water seeped into the gym, the music room and pre-Kindergarten room. Tony Baldwin, director of education with the Prairie South School Division, said that by time he arrived at lunch on Sunday, there were teachers, maintenance staff, the administrative assistant and many others cleaning up. Baldwin said it was a great example of the commitment that teachers and staff show all year. “Hannah (Tyminski), the pre-Kindergarten teacher, spent all day Saturday working there in the school in her room, just doing what teachers do on the weekends: getting ready for the next week and dealing with whatever was left over from the week before,” Baldwin said. “We had the flood Saturday night and when I was

there at lunch on Sunday, she was back, the principal Jill Tressel was there, the school secretary was there, the caretaker was there. Jill’s husband was there and he doesn’t have anything to do with the school, except he thought we might have to haul some boxes or something. “It’s just normal stuff. Regardless of what the thing is, they just make it happen and kids and families are better for it everywhere. That’s just the kind of family atmosphere that exists in schools in Prairie South and around the province.” While that Sunday’s emergency clean-up was an unusual occurrence, it was just one example of things that teachers and staff do behind the scenes that aren’t always seen. “I know that the majority of people have no idea how much work a teacher does in a day. They have no idea how much our other staff members do in a day,” Baldwin said. “The guy we had driving the Bobcat, chipping ice, Sunday morning, he wasn’t thinking he was going to be spending his weekend away from his kids fighting through minus-30 weather and a foot of ice. “We’re pretty fortunate to have the crew of people that we have, with the world view that they have. ‘Let’s just get busy

Teachers and staff from St. Mary School enjoy some treats sent to the school by the board members of the Holy Trinity Catholic School Division during Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week in Saskatchewan. and get this stuff done.’” Those things that need to get done around a school community go well-beyond the classroom and it is only expanding as the years go on with technology and social media changing some of the traditional roles and concerns of teachers and staff. “Nothing that we do really equates to all of the extras that go on with our staff,” said Sean Chase, director of education

New song puts focus on proposed moose truce Scott Hellings

The fight for the largest moose between Moose Jaw and Norway has gained international attention. Recently, there was speculation that a potential “moose-truce” was in the works. On the heels of this proposal, Stor-Elvdal vice-mayor Linda Otnes Henriksen posted a song about the truce on Twitter. The catchy electronic pop song, appropriately named “Moose Truce” is by Ganic and Vimarida. It is available to stream on Spotify or for purchase on iTunes. The song highlights the rivalry between the two nations and suggests that we should work together with lyrics like “What’s the difference if we win or lose? All we need is somebody to step up and be the bigger moose.” What does the city think about the song? Craig Hemingway, communications manager with the City of Moose Jaw, praised the Norwegians for continuing to keep the story relevant. He says they are always happy to get more exposure for Mac the Moose and the city. “It’s fantastic the response that our friends in Norway have continued to provide and to make this story as big as it has gotten. It continues to stay relevant, and certainly that is in no small part due to their efforts and their participation in this fun back and forth between themselves and Mayor Tolmie and the City of Moose Jaw. This song is another great example of that,” said Hemingway. As for a potential truce, Hemingway says the city needs to consider the wishes of Mac’s supporters. “The mayor has stated a couple of times that (a truce) is fantastic, but lots of people have donated a lot of money to the cause to make Mac the biggest in the world again. We have to stay true to that because that is why this was started. We can’t show bad faith; people want Mac to be bigger and we need to respect the wishes of the people who have been donating.” He also noted that Henriksen may soon be visiting Moose Jaw. Details are still being finalized. Meanwhile, Tolmie and Henriksen were scheduled to discuss the moose issue on BBC television this past Friday morning.

It’s never enough to really, truly encapsulate all of the great things that they are doing for our students and families.” Chase said their respective School Community Councils treat their teachers and staff well during this annual week to recognize the contributions of their staff. “Our school community councils are essential to the work that we do,” Chase said. “Those parents who volunteer their time are really close and recognize all of the extra efforts from our staff at the school. Our SCC typically plan some type of event or a variety of events over the course of the week.” Baldwin said a lot of recognition for their staff and teachers are done at the school level as well. “Kids and school community councils are really good at coming up with neat ways of celebrating that with the staff that are closest to them,” Baldwin said.

Low spring run-off predicted by water agency By Ron Walter | For Moose Jaw Express

While all of Saskatchewan was EXPRESS shivering in minus 40 Celsius temperatures, the Saskatchewan Water Security Agency reported on expected spring run-off. The preliminary assessment in February is not good news for many farmers and livestock operators. Near normal run-off is predicted in the southwest for an area angling southeast from Swift Current to Coronach. Already dry last fall, this area has received between 80 per cent and 115 per cent of normal winter snowfall. Below normal run-off is predicted for much of the Moose Jaw region south to the U.S. border and east from Regina to the Manitoba border. Most of this area was dry last fall, receiving between 40 per cent and 85 per cent of normal winter snowfall. The area north of Maple Creek and Swift Current to Kindersley, east to Outlook and south to Assiniboia will have below normal run-off. Most of that land had between 80 per cent and 85 per cent of normal winter snowfall. An area from Outlook to Marquis, bounded by the Yel-

AGRIMART

lowhead Highway on the north and the Trans-Canada Highway on the south to Manitoba should experience well below normal run-off. This territory was partly dry to dry last fall with most if it receiving between 40 per cent and 65 per cent of normal winter snowfall. The outlook for snowfall to compensate before spring is poor. The agency report says it would take well-above average precipitation in February, March and April to produce an above-average spring run-off. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

City Hall Council Notes Major infrastructure projects move forward after council decisions Tender, ROP set for water main replacement consulting, roadway paving; Mac the Moose on trial? Randy Palmer | Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw city council dealt with a pair of major infrastructure tenders as part of their capital project awards during their most recent meeting on Feb. 11. Council approved a $455,000 request for proposal for consulting services for the Phase IV Water Main replacement as well as a $2,450,000 tender for roadway paving, with that tender set to close on Feb, 14. The two projects were moved forward before final budget approval due to the timeliness of their delivery, accommodating for design and allowing contractors time to plan their season. Delays in the awarding of tenders for projects of that scope have been found to have a large impact on the ability to deliver in the past, hence the decision to move forward as quickly as possible in the new year.

**** The removal of the word ‘direct’ from a trio of residential subdivision proposals received a touch of discussion, with Coun. Brian Swanson seeking to simplify the wording of reports to the provincial government. At question was the line ‘The City of Moose Jaw will not provide direct water or sewer service for this development.’ with the word ‘direct’ potentially adding confusion to the wording. As it stands, the city will provide water and sewer services up to city limits, with the rural municipality water co-op dealing with hook-ups from there. The concern with providing such services is that since the new subdivisions would be outside city boundaries, they would benefit from the services but not pay taxes.

He expected things to be ready for council review by mid-March. **** Moose Jaw citizen Clayton Finnell offered a unique proposal to council with regards to the current situation surrounding Mac the Moose – a trial to decide whether Mac should remain the same size, be raised to the same size as the Norway moose or made larger. The trial would feature for and against arguments from both sides and would be decided on by school students voting alongside council members for a final decision. Finnell’s added that out of kindness, Mac should be left the same or at the very most built to the same height. His comments were received and filed.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS

To share or not to share heart-wrenching photos

Their photos are pathetic and heart-wrenching. The photographic subjects are either elderly, grime-covered, or just a bit ugly on a scale of one to 10 with one being ugly and 10 being the top scale of ugly. They admit they are not Joyce Walter the most loveable looking, For Moose Jaw Express sometimes suggesting they are not the smartest puck on the ice, that perhaps they have outlived their usefulness. And then the clincher: “I bet I don’t get one share.” As one not entirely sure how Facebook works, or even why I want to be on there except to keep track of our younger family members, it is a mystery to me how and why some items are posted for all the world to see. It is a great place to share recipes, some that work and others that don’t but one has to take a chance that the recipe doesn’t really have eggs as one would think. Facebook’s groups are also interesting, keeping us informed of coming events, reminding us via photos of days gone by, showing who has what for

sale, and engaging interested parties in the news and gossip of the day. Facebook has a mechanism that reminds friends to wish other friends Happy Birthday — it is indeed pleasant to receive that type of greeting. Facebook also has the ability to provide year-end reminders of what each member did during the past 12 months and conjures up photos as reminders. Scary, freaky, maybe, but still an amazing achievement of someone who knows considerably more than the average person. Some of the Facebook friends I follow make a habit of posting giggles of the day, jokes that make us laugh at ourselves and with others of like mind. And they post self-help quotations and thought-provoking messages of hope and inspiration. Unfortunately, Facebook is also a forum for political discussions among people who really aren’t that well-informed — some of whom have a very limited vocabulary and start and end most of their sentences with a four-letter word starting with the sixth letter of the alphabet. Maybe they missed most of their English and grammar lessons in school or were absent for classes on words of more than one syllable. Those are the postings I zip over, figuring what is being discussed with such profane thought is defi-

nitely not a conversation in which my participation would be welcome. And I don’t share any of those conversations. Nor will I share those heart-wrenching photos mentioned earlier — photos not of humans but of dogs, canines that have wandered into camera range of someone who insists on posting those photos in an attempt to shame and guilt Facebook users into sharing such photos. I love dogs just as much as the next person, having had several dogs while growing up and wanting a pup in our marriage home. That pup eluded me for several practical reasons but the yearning for a dog at our address has not and will not entice me to share the photos of every pitiful looking animal posted on Facebook. Did the dogs give their permission to be exploited this way? And if their photos are shared, how will they know and how will they react? Will they suddenly look less mournful, less pitiful, less grimy? Unlikely. Perhaps it is time to read more books rather than trying to keep up with friends, family and strange dogs in this mystifying manner. Joyce Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

Seeding case

APAS president happy with court challenge hearing on carbon tax Ron Walter | For Moose Jaw Express

Pretty much satisfied is how Todd Lewis, president of the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan (APAS) described the first day in court on the carbon tax case. APAS has intervention status in the lawsuit between the Government of Saskatchewan and the Government of Canada. The federal government has imposed what it calls carbon pricing on any Canadian province deemed to not have a suitable carbon pricing plan. The province claims the federal government doesn’t have the jurisdiction to levy the carbon tax unless it is uniform to all provinces. Lewis said lawyers spent a lot of time talking about a judicial precedent on which Crown Zellerbach challenged federal jurisdiction over environmental regulations. The federal government won. “But that was salt water, not fresh water. The feds have clear rights over marine water.” The five Saskatchewan judges hearing the case asked “questions to get information. There was nothing political in the questions.” Arguments opposing the tax by the Gov-

ernment of Saskatchewan, other intervenors, the governments of Ontario, and New Brunswick “made common sense.” The APAS legal submission was based on the unconstitutionality of the carbon tax, said Lewis. “We made the point that the Government of Saskatchewan is suited best to regulate this. They understand Saskatchewan better than the federal government.” He said APAS is also concerned that even with an exemption for agriculture, farmers will still be paying the tax as suppliers of inputs and machinery will pass on the tax to customers by higher prices. In talking with the APAS lawyers after the hearing Lewis said he was pretty happy with the hearing and looked forward to the next day when the Government of Canada made its case. This hearing is not the end of the lawsuit. “With something this political it’s going to the Supreme Court (of Canada), whichever side wins.” Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

executive chef of Canoe in Toronto, and attempts to close the gap in perception between the urban consumer and the agriculture industry in Canada. “(Horne) designs a plate to serve at the restaurant, and it has 10 ingredients. He traces each ingredient back to the farm to show where it’s coming from, how it’s produced and then how it ends up on your plate at the restaurant,” said Jaycee Peutert, farm management extension specialist with the Agriculture Knowledge Centre in the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture. “(Producer Dylan Sher) grew up in Ontario and he thought he knew about agriculture. He went to the University of Guelph to take Ag Business and realized he really didn’t know anything about agriculture. He was totally out of his element and realized that it was totally different from the city perspective. He met up with a film student (director Sagi Kahane-Rapport) and it evolved from there and they made this really cool documentary.” Before the Plate follows young farmers and industry experts in order to show the general population what a modern Canadian farm operation looks like, and answer the most pressing questions consumers have about their food and food safety. “It’s safe. Farmer feed their food to their families,” Peutert said. “They want to produce good, affordable, safe food for consumers. We find that disconnect from the farm is creating a gap in knowledge. Consumers want to know what’s in their food and where it’s coming from. Which is a totally valid question. And farmers want that to be available. The Canadian Centre for Food Integrity found that most Canadians are disconnected from the farm, with 93 per cent surveyed saying that they know little-to-nothing about farming. While that percentage would surely be a little lower in Saskatchewan, Peutert said the problem is prevalent.

Members of the public and the agriculture industry gathered for coffee, donuts and conversation during the open house at the Agriculture Knowledge Centre in Moose Jaw Tuesday morning. (Matthew Gourlie photograph) “I feel that even in Saskatchewan it is a problem,” Peutert said. “A lot of people in the Ag world aren’t totally aware of how bad it is. It is something that years ago somebody — maybe it was their grandpa or their grandma — had a farm and so they were going out there. There’s fewer farms. There’re still family farms, but there are less of them. So, we are finding that people don’t have that direct link any more, even in Saskatchewan.” That loss of a direct link has also taken the face away from the family farm in some regards. “Just because it’s maybe produced on a bigger scale doesn’t mean that it isn’t just as safe or that the farmer doesn’t care as much, because they do,” Peutert said. “People hear about ‘the factory farm’ and they think modern agriculture has turned into factory farming. It’s 97 per cent of farms that are family-owned. It’s just for tax planning reasons that they incorporate, but the shareholders are mom and dad or dad and son. It’s still that family farm at the root of it, which I think gets lost on people.” In addition to the film screening, the Agriculture Knowledge Centre in Moose Jaw hosted an open house Tuesday morning. “We all get really busy, but it’s just a day to take some time to celebrate Ag Day,” Peutert said. “We all love agriculture. Everybody loves it for a different reason and a lot of them are common values, I find. We are trying to share our joy and appreciation for ag and bridge that gap a little bit to connect the farmers and the consumers.”

ing experience. “As a nursing professional, you want these people to have the best care that they can. They are so incredibly grateful for the care that we give them,” said Wilson. “It is very rewarding when you see patients leaving with hope again that they will feel better and that they have a chance for good health, now that they have had proper treatment. It kind of reminds us all why we got into health care in the first place.” Follow the group on Facebook to get updates on the trip and to stay connected with the group and their fundraising efforts throughout the year.

BIZWORLD

By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

“Blue Nose” gold miner shows great prospects for long term The scandal in Ottawa over how much pressure someone in the Prime Minister’s office put on former Justice Minister Judy Wilson-Raybould to allow SNC-Lavalin to avoid prosecution in the courts will continue unfolding for months. Things sure look fishy. In 2015, federal prosecutors charged SNC-Lavalin for breaching federal laws that don’t allow Canadians to pay bribes in return for contracts. SNC and executives who are no longer employed there were accused of massive payoffs to Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi’s son to secure contracts. The records show SNC lobbyists met with federal government officials about the matter, especially after 2018 when the Liberal Government passed a new deferred prosecution law allowing companies to avoid court trials. SNC had already been nailed for $200,000 illegal donations to the Liberal Party. Now came accusations that pressure was placed on Wilson-Raybould to use this law instead of a court trial, that she refused, which is why she was demoted in cabinet. Things sure do look fishy. This deferred prosecution law, similar to an American law that repeatedly allows law-breaking corporations to pay fines and avoid trials, could have let SNC off the

hook with a huge fine. A court conviction of SNC would bankrupt the company. Under the law, companies convicted of making bribes are not allowed to bid on government contracts for 10 years. Not only would SNC have been shut out of government contracts in Canada, imagine the loss of credibility and contract opportunities in the rest of the world. A global leader in the engineering and consulting business, SNC has revenues of $9.3 billion, up from $500 million 10 years ago with 50,000 employees, 15,000 in North America. Most of that would be lost after a court conviction. Three company divisions — oil and gas, infrastructure, power — account for 71 per cent of revenues. A court conviction and subsequent loss of SNC would cost Canada thousands of jobs, loss of a global giant in business, and worse, leave most of the world with a bad impression of this country. A large fine under the new law, and soon all would be forgotten on the global scene. The SNC case raises another international affairs issue — an elephant in the room, if you will. Laws forbidding payment of corporate bribes in other countries were approved under pressure from voters who desired squeaky clean corporate dealings by Canadians

doing business elsewhere. Reality flies in the face of this no-bribe law. More than half of the world’s population lives in places where bribery, while terribly wrong, is common. Is it hypocritical to ask our businesses to create wealth and jobs but deny them use of the tools to compete with other countries? The Liberal law exempting court trials allows voters to feel good about catching bribery and corruption and penalizing it yet allows business to remain competitive. It was supposed to be a compromise between international practice and Canadian values until the fan was hit. This case raises another issue. Should corporations and their employees be bankrupted by legal convictions when the leaders allowing the wrongdoing are really responsible? People are outraged when bombing injures and kills civilian casualties. What about innocent casualties of the court room? If only the feds leaned harder on someone to build a pipeline, Westerners might be more understanding. Hopefully this column provides readers some food for thought.

Beef producers lucky to have multi-country trade pacts By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

AGRIMART

EXPRESS North America is producing a record amount of protein and selling it says Ryder Lee, CEO of the Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association. Canada is lucky to have two big trades deals in the last few years — the CETA deal with Europe and the (TPTP) Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership, he told

a livestock producers’ workshop. “Trade agreements don’t come along very often, especially multi-country agreements.” The TPTP agreement opens the market to Japan, one of the largest high value markets in the world that had a 38.5 per cent tariff on beef. “And we have a preferred access into Japan versus the United States. A little tariff advantage like Japan is well worth it.” Being one of the first signers of the deal

gives an advantage when other countries sign the pact and “it keeps us on an even playing field with Australia and New Zealand” beef. Not having to lower prices for tariffs will affect value chains. He encouraged producers to get involved in programs like verified beef for value chains. “That takes a little work on your behalf on the paperwork on your farm but there’s some opportunity there to capture a very high value market. “Verified beef production plus can help your records, probably just recording what you are already doing” and might help market access to Europe and China. Avoiding risk from political events like the current China diplomacy issue is important, and he suggested using pro-

grams in the Canada Agriculture Partnership “to avoid a wreck.” Expansion of irrigation in Saskatchewan would help grow the beef herd but convincing the federal and provincial governments to “invest north of a billon dollars is difficult.” Farmers also need access to skilled farm labour from South Africa “to do the work Canadians won’t do, come to work on time and stick to it.” Lee said the industry is trying to convince grain farmers to grow feed grain so beef feeders just don’t get lower grade leftovers.

Managing the weed seed bank account critical By Ron Walter | For Agri-Mart Express

AGRIMART

EXPRESS One bank farmers don’t want to draw on is the weed seed bank on their land. Lurking beneath the surface, the weed seed bank can chew into profits if not managed. The weed seeds of perennial and annual varieties, both new and old, can sit for years before sprouting and pushing through the soil. Few of the many seeds in the soil will ever germinate, says Harry Brook, Alberta Agriculture crop specialist. Some die, some decompose with predatory crickets and beetles reducing weeds by up to 15 per cent. “Keeping the soil in permanent cover increases predation on weed seeds,” he says. Some seeds die when buried too deep while others swing between dormancy and growth depending on conditions.

End of winter breaks dormancy of summer annuals while winter annual weeds require summer heat to break dormancy. Changes in cropping systems, says Books, can alter the seed bank contents, with some like kochia and dandelion not more than a year or two. But wild oats and red root pigweed can last for decades buried in the field. Perennial forages in the crop rotation are most effective in depleting the seed bank account especially with kochia, wild oats, foxtail and grassy like weeds. Another tactic to reduce the weed seed count is chaff collection during harvest and preventing 90 per cent of new seeds from hitting the dirt. Cultivation leaves the vast majority of weed seeds in the top four inches of the soil, and subject to wet and dry cycles that develop growth. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

TRADING THOUGHTS

Fate of Kootenay Ice team highlights small market fragility The relocation of the Kootenay Ice WHL team to Winnipeg serves notice on hockey fans to never take the Warriors in Moose Jaw for granted. Small hockey markets such as Swift Current, Moose Jaw, Prince Albert and Brandon remain vulnerable to relocation. The only things keeping small market teams from moving to another large city market are continuing fan support to put bums in arena seats and community fundraising. by Ron Walter The Kootenay market isn’t that different from Moose Jaw. The Ice home, Cranbrook, is smaller with about 30,000 people in town and the immediate district but draws on a 100,000-trading area compared with 56,000 in the Moose Jaw trading area. Both have resource-based economies: grain, livestock and potash for Moose Jaw; coal mining, forestry and lead mining for Cranbrook. Resource-based industries work with up and down cycles. The expansion of coal mining near Cranbrook has come to a halt with job losses. Forestry is no better, The century old Sullivan lead mine in the trading area has downsized jobs for years from new technology and lower reserves. When the Kootenay Ice came to Cranbrook 22 years ago to play for two years in a 1,750-seat arena until a new 4,400 seat arena was built, some observers thought the move from Edmonton, where fan support wasn’t sufficient, a silly attempt. At first Cranbrook proved them wrong with great community support. Attendance in the first three years averaged more than 3,500 a game as the team performed well.

In more recent years with a slower economy and a less winning team, attendance has skidded to average 2,121 for the last five years. When Winnipeg businessmen bought the Ice in 2018, the handwriting was on the wall. A spate of trades for players with Manitoba-birth connections was more evidence. Community ownership makes no difference, as Moose Jaw learned about 12 years ago when the league demanded a new arena or the Warriors would be moved to a larger city. The WHL has become big business. Team ownership is no longer a write-off of an expensive boy-toy. Today’s team ownership involves a return on investment and funding large enough budgets to compete with large urban team support. Attracting a new younger fan base is a must. Most of the Warriors fans sport grey hair. When younger fans attend, they often spend much of the game on their smart phones. Future distractions from local hockey attendance range from Netflix competition to those black Android boxes that allow owners to view “free” sports from anywhere in North America any time. The rink built at Mosaic Place doesn’t ensure the Warriors will stay. Ensuring that requires ongoing support and work. Game and season ticket revenues require fundraising through advertising support, sponsorship and 50-50 draws. Small market fans can’t support high prices as can be seen from some single game prices. Kootenay charges $28.25 versus $22 in Moose Jaw. Kamloops charges $25 while Vancouver prices range from $23.25 to $38.50 and Seattle ranges between $28 and $45.

Ice Ice Baby

All winter I have been humbly bragging to my Saskatchewan friends about the weather on Liars Mountain, mostly about the lack of minus double-digit nights. This means it is by Dale “bushy” Bush difficult for a smart good-looking fella like me to build a skating rink in his back yard. I blame global warming for the lack of ice-producing nights and the surplus of ice-melting days which, to some folks, might say sounds like the perfect winter. In our case, it is except for the skating thing. Mild winters was one of the main reasons we chose Liarton as our retirement locality because we wanted four distinct seasons. We are as active in the winter as we are in summer and strangely, we would miss the snow and ice had we moved farther west to the coast or the island. However, those sissies on the coast do enjoy a 3-season year, Springish (3 months), Summer (6 months) and Fall-ish (3 months). There are folks who would argue that folks on the prairies enjoy 3 seasons as well, Spring-ish (3

months), Fall-ish (3 months) and Winter (6 months). This warm year is unusual. As a result, there are fewer outdoor skating rinks in the vicinity. Last year we had our choice of 5 rinks within our area and any thought of the lake freezing over just hasn’t seemed plausible for years. Of course, this was the year I had leveled a 25 foot by 40-foot space, preparing for our back yard skating experience. It is sad to see my “rink” out in the yard, snow covered but unhappy and possibly forlorn. Our favorite rink down at the Community hall is a slushy mess but kudos to the crew for attempting the impossible. Our best bet for an afternoon of skating this year seemed to be across the lake and up in elevation on Sebastion Mountain near the village of Arista. We had never skated there before, but have heard about it for years. To say we were pleasantly surprised is an understatement. We were totally amazed! Twice the size of Liarton’s rink, this huge ice surface was easily the size of two Olympic sized hockey rinks, but without the boards. To be honest, the boards are not a needed requirement for skating. There were two hockey nets at each end of the rink with plywood backstops donated by the local hardware store. When we arrived at 1pm, the rink had been flooded earlier that morning and was nearly perfect. There was a small heated shack to de-boot and skate-up, which is always nice, and in the shack there

were 40-50 pairs of skates for exchange or loan, a dozen or so helmets of different sizes. And just outside the door was an assortment of all sizes of hockey sticks for loan. How cool is that? Inside the shack was a land line telephone, for emergencies and ordering pizza(?) and a connection for the stereo PA system that will play music from a I-phone thingy. Outdoors there was a beautiful fire pit with split firewood and picnic tables made of logs, along with an impressive array of floodlights for night skating (just turn the lights off when you leave). Wow! That level of organization is impressive. Photos on one wall of the shack showed who was responsible for this great community effort: The service club, the Volunteer Fire Department, the Hardware Store. The many volunteers who help in so many ways area all a part of this success. I did not recognize any of the people in those pictures but I am sure hundreds of skating shacks across Canada have similar photos. Ain’t Canada great?

Newcomers benefit from police information session Sasha-Gay Lobban

During an information session presented by the Moose Jaw Police Service, several people who are part of the newcomers’ community got an opportunity to receive invaluable information about policing and laws that govern the province. The Moose Jaw Newcomer Welcome Center hosted the event on Thursday, January 31 where Cst. Kyle Cunningham from the Moose Jaw Police Service provided an interactive presentation that answered any questions newcomers had. Cst. Cunningham spoke about: Who’s the police? What they do; How to respond in an emergency; Laws of Canada and the police’s role in enforcement; Driving in Saskatchewan— impaired driving and penalties; Domestic violence and more. Cst. Cunningham said he was happy to provide this information and answer questions so that newcomers can feel more comfortable and safe in the community. “I think it’s great to have that relationship with our Moose Jaw Multicultural Council and the Newcomers Welcome Centre whereby we’re able to get information to them. To be new here, they may have received information through friends or

family members, but it’s really important to pass on the correct information to help them make decisions, help them feel safe in our community and to feel a part of it. They have a role to play in community safety as well.” Cst. Cunningham said the feedback from attendees was good, as some very important questions were answered in the session that will help newcomers adjust better in their new home. “The feedback from the newcomers was great because they had some important questions. Of course, policing in Moose Jaw and by extension, Canada is very different from a lot of the countries they’re from, so we want to show that policing here is done differently but we want to make them feel comfortable. Providing this information is part of the process to help them adjust and be better abled to make the right decisions, especially when it comes to laws in Canada,” he noted. “It is just really great to have this partnership with the Multicultural Council and the Newcomers Center. This helps to continue building our bonds in the community,” Cunningham reiterated.

Cst. Kyle Cunningham Eric Akoto, who was one of the members at the information session, said he is grateful for the information that was provided. “The information session was indeed great for me because I had a lot of questions answered. I got to learn so much more about laws in regard to the City of Moose Jaw and the province on a whole. There was a lot I wasn’t aware of before and I’m happy I got the opportunity to come here tonight because now I’ll

be able to make better informed decisions. I’m grateful for the knowledge I gained from this session tonight.” Melissa Mitchell, Newcomer Welcome Center Program Manager, said as the community becomes more diverse, there is a need to provide this type of information on a consistent basis. She said the sessions serve the clients well. “We’ve had the Moose Jaw Police come to do presentations on many different topics and we thought it was great to bring this information about policing in the community to educate newcomers on what to expect and how to respond to certain situations. As the population becomes more diverse and changes happen over time in our province and city, we love to keep newcomers as informed as possible, whether it’s about new laws or just important changes to legislation that they need to know. For example, marijuana being legalized; we wanted to make sure that we not only provide this information to our clients but assist them in understanding it. So, the Moose Jaw Police [Service] is a great partnership we have that assists us in this area.”

Winter GAX draws a lot of new attendees Matthew Gourlie

The first weekend of February offered perfect conditions to stay inside and play some games. Unfortunately, it wasn’t great weather to travel to Moose Jaw to take in a gaming expo. Despite the cold and a heavy snowfall in the forecast, 83 people attended the Winter GAX hosted by the Moose Jaw Gamer’s Association. “We didn’t break our record, but we were right up there, so we’re pretty happy,” said Kristian Sjoberg from the Moose Jaw Gamer’s Association. “We probably had about 25 of our regulars who didn’t show up this year. We could have broken the 100 mark this year if this weather hadn’t happened. “There were a lot of new people, which was awesome.” The Winter GAX typically is the bigger of the two and last year’s Winter GAX drew a record of 87 people. The event also acts as a fundraiser; Winter GAX is donating $500 to both the Prairie South School Division and the Holy Trinity School Division. Those donations are matched by the SaskTel Pioneers, meaning that the Pioneers are donating $1,000 to each school division so they will each receive a total of $1,500 from the event to put towards their literacy programs. “Essentially we’ve facilitated $3,000 worth of donations this year,” Sjoberg said. “It was a fantastic weekend.” The MJGA hosts a biannual gamer’s expo that features both internet-connected LAN (local area network) games or board games. Once again, St. Joseph’s Church was a hub of activity. “It was really eventful,” Sjoberg said. “Saturday, we had

two tournaments that happened. We had a tournament for the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which is the new one that just came out on Nintendo Switch. We had guys come down from Regina and Saskatoon for that one. Then we had a Mario Kart 64 tournament that happened as well. So that was kind of fun.” The event continues to branch out and had a cosplay panel for the first time. Cosplay -- a portmanteau of costume play -- features people dressing up in costume and acting in character of their favourite cartoons, comic book characters, super heroes, video game characters, anime, etc. Cosplay is common at fan expos the world over. “They answered questions and showed people their costumes,” Sjoberg said. “There are a couple of people in Moose Jaw who are master cosplayers, so that means that they’ve competed in competitions and got basically certified at the highest level of cosplay.” While they are hoping to have cosplay increasing in presence at their GAX events, they are also hoping to have a standalone event. “We’re hoping to have a large cosplay event at the Mae Wilson in the fall. Normally, most cosplay events will draw a couple of hundred people,” Sjoberg said. They want to draw some of the people from around the

area who travel to cosplay at comic-cons and who are working towards attaining their master level cosplay, but also be open to anyone who wants to wear a costume down to small kids wearing their Spider-Man costumes. The MJGA are also hoping to have a cosplay element at Sidewalk Days, as well. The Summer GAX, which is typically the smaller of the two, will be held from July 12-14 with a new location -- moving it to the Mae Wilson in the conference rooms in the back.

SCRAPS and MJFFC team up for first Cat Café in Moose Jaw Sasha-Gay Lobban | Photos submitted by SCRAPS

Band City Stray Cat Rescue and Protection Society Inc. (SCRAPS) and the Moose Jaw Families For Change (MJFFC) have teamed up to bring to the community for the first time, a pop-up Cat Café. The pop-up Cat Café will serve as a fundraiser for SCRAPS while offering a place for community members to come and interact with the cats. This is the first time that SCRAPS and MJFFC are partnering to bring this initiative to the community which they say will be beneficial to both organizations and the wider Moose Jaw community. Ann Marciszyn, volunteer at SCRAPS said people in the community have been requesting a Cat Café in Moose Jaw for some time and the opportunity was perfect when they were contacted by MJFFC to implement this initiative. “Moose Jaw Families For Change approached us about partnering with them for this event that they thought we’d really like it. We loved it because we’ve

had a call for a Cat Café from a lot of people in Moose Jaw where they can come and spend time with the cats. So, a lot of our followers were excited when we announced this partnership to do a Cat Café. The response so far has been tremendous because our upcoming session is sold out already. However, people will get an opportunity to register for others as this will be ongoing for some time.” The organizations hosted a soft launch of the Cat Café recently and received remarkable feedback. “Our first Cat Café was very successful so we’re inviting the community to come out and be part of this premier partnership right here in Moose Jaw,” added Marciszyn. SCRAPS will announce the next Cat Café on its Facebook page. Katie Statler, Community Coordinator at Moose Jaw Families for Change said, interaction with animals has been a great experience for MJFFC clients. As a result, Families for Change wanted to make this open for the

community to attend. “We are a local non-profit organization that supports people with varying abilities, and we acknowledge that some of the folks we support gain great experiences when they interact with animals. We’ve had interactions with dogs, goats and other farm animals but we realized that they enjoy time with cats,” she explained. “We decided that we’d do a partnership with SCRAPS for a Cat Café which will facilitate this, not only for the folks at our center but also for people in the community.” Statler says she is happy to bring this initiative to Moose Jaw because Cat Cafes have been a growing trend. “Cat Cafes have been a popular trend currently, but Moose Jaw doesn’t have one. So, we thought that if this would be mutually beneficial for us and SCRAPS, then we would initiate that partnership. All the proceeds from the Cat Café will go towards SCRAPS to assist with their programs. We’re hoping to continue this for a while because there has been a great response so far.” Both SCRAPS and the Moose Jaw Families for Change said the Cat Café has several benefits for people who would like to attend. They said it is also beneficial for the cats in SCRAPS’ adoption program. “It’s important to note that not only is this a fundraiser but it is highly beneficial for those who attend,” said Marciszyn. “SCRAPS does pet therapy and we’re looking at this as a form of pet therapy for individuals. There are lots of studies that show how beneficial pets are to people; they relieve stress, reduce blood pressure and heart rate and they make people feel good. They are also beneficial to our cats because they are looking for homes and we’re hoping that through the contacts they make, there’s a chance they’ll find a home.” The Cat Café is accommodated at the Kinsmen Inclusion Center at 335 4th Ave. SW. You can register to attend an upcoming Cat Café at communication@mjffc. com The cost to attend the Cat Café is $5. This includes a 45-minute session to engage with the cats, coffee or tea and a treat. The Cat Café facilitates two sessions which can see up to 20 persons attending. Watch SCRAPS and MJFFC’s Facebook pages to for details on the next Cat Café.

With a heart for business, Tina Couzens put her office education and 30 years of work experience to the test.

Mickey continues to live independently in her own home, golfing and curling regularly.

Philanthropic Pilots Patchwork for Charity Student Pilots from the 2 CFFTS at 15 Wing Moose Jaw have expanded their skill to help Quilts of Valour produce two quilts for Canadian ill and injured soldiers. Phase II course 1804 and 1808 found time during their busy schedules to make quilts at the base chapel. Although quilting can be labourious and time consuming, both courses managed to finish their quilts in

only a few hours. Wing Chaplain Capt Eric Davis noted that many of the students were initially nervous but in the end they surprised themselves by how they enjoyed the day’s activity. Cheryl Dvernichuk from Quilts of Valour was impressed how quickly the pilots took to sewing and how well they performed, especially since this was the first time some of them have ever

sewn before. The idea to support Quilts of Valour by making quilts was proposed by the Wing Chaplain after participating in a presentation to a member located at 15 Wing in 2016. In total, 7 quilts have been made at 15 Wing for Quilts of Valour in the last two years which included the volunteer help of the MFRC, the Protestant Church group Thimble Thursday, spouses, pilots courses, and others on the wing who have volunteered their time to help make

squares in order to assemble them into a larger quilt. 15 Wing is committed to keep contributing quilts to QOV who supports our ill/injured members or veterans through their generous gifts of handmade love. As of 2018, over 12,000 quilts have been presented with a goal of presenting 20,000 by 2020. To become more familiar with Quilts of Valour, who qualifies for a quilt, and how to apply please visit www. quiltsofvalour.ca.

From The Kitchen N a m e s o n re c i p e c a rds b r i n g u p f a c e s By Joyce Walter For Moose Jaw Express

The cookbooks in the cupboard are the backup to the real treasures — recipe cards that bear the names of friends and family members who have shared their favourite recipes. Some of the names bring instant recognition and memories of sharing special meals around a full table. But there are also names on recipes, names that don’t immediately bring up a face in the memory bank —someone named Jeremy gave me his jiffy pudding recipe but I’m unable to remember where I met him. Sorry Jeremy. And similar regrets to Gertrude whose recipe for Chili Con Carne is stashed in one of my recipe boxes. One of these days I will try those recipes with the hope the end result might jog my memory. ••• Marlene’s Stew Melby 2 lbs. round steak 4 carrots 2 potatoes 1 onion 2-3 celery stalks salt and pepper to taste

Cyclones win consolation at Harry Ainlay tournament Impressive victory continues stellar season for Central boys basketball team Randy Palmer | Moose Jaw Express

The Central Cyclones have put together one of the best high school boys basketball seasons in recent memory, and their success at the Harry Ainlay Tri-Province Basketball Tournament in Edmonton this past weekend was just the latest example of their winning ways. The Cyclones lost their opening game but won their next two contests to claim the consolation side championship at the prestigious high-level event. The tournament features some of the best teams from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. Central opened with a 98-66 loss to the host Harry Ainlay Titans, who would go on to win the tournament. It was clear sailing from there, though, as they downed Winnipeg Oak Park 90-79 and took an 88-72 win over Edmonton Christian Academy, the topranked 4A team in Alberta.

The Cyclones’ season-long focus on solid team defence paid off in their first consolation-side game, as they racked up 13 steals and 32 defensive rebounds in their win over Winnipeg. Fharis Ebet led the Central with 19 points, Riley Seaborn added 16 and Dylan Boughen 15. Jaxson Brownell pulled down 12 rebounds. Central 88, Edmonton Christian 72 Hardil Khubber continued his impressive senior season with 30 points in the consolation final, with his overall performance through the weekend landing him a spot on the tournament The Central Cyclones won the Consolation side of the prestigious Harry Ainlay all-star team.

Solid showings for Moose Jaw high school at South Sask. Wrestling tournament Four golds, six silver, one bronze for wrestlers from local high schools at event Randy Palmer | Moose Jaw Express

It was another solid tournament for Moose Jaw high school wrestlers – and this time they had a chance to win their medals in front of their own friends and family. More than 200 wrestlers from throughout the province took part in the South Sask. high school championship tournament, with competitors from Peacock, Central and Vanier winning four gold, six silver and one bronze. One of those golds came from Liam Vargo in the Elite Male 56 kilogram division as he swept his three matches, winning all three by technical fall. Not a bad result for a Grade 9 competitor from Peacock in his first year of high school wrestling. “I think the transition to high school wrestling has been phenomenal,” Vargo said. “I’m doing great, my performances have been good and I’m happy with where I’m going. I’ve seen a lot of improvement in the last couple of years and I’m really looking forward to provincials. It’ll be neat to have a chance to be a four-year provincial champ.” Fellow Peacock standout Dylan Yamniuk found himself in a war in his first match against Regina’s

Winston Knoll’s Trenton Wilhelm in the Elite Male 69 kg division, eventually taking a 14-12 decision. It was clear sailing from there as he won by pinfall and technical fall his next two bouts before taking 11 seconds to win the gold medal match. “It was a pretty good tournament, I did well,” Yamniuk said. “The first match was tough but I pulled through and the rest of the tournament fell in place so I was able to get first. It was really good.” Also winning gold were Vanier’s Ryann Handley in the Novice Female 59-60 kg division and Central’s Alexis Bradish in the Novice Female 61-63 kg class. Finishing second were five Peacock competitiors in Justin Wiens (Elite Male 59 kg), Kyle Yamniuk (Elite Male 62 kg), Ethan La Rose (Elite Male 73 kg), Sydnee Christmann (Novice Female 65-68 kg), Jody Bourage (Novice Male 102-103 kg) and Central’s Tanner Stelwagen (Novice Male 68-70 kg). Central’s Samuel Eros (Novice Male 66-69 kg) picked up the lone bronze medal. Next up for Moose Jaw high school wrestlers will be the regional championships during the Mar. 2 weekend in Weyburn.

Moose Jaw’s Liam Vargo took first place at the recent South Saskatchewan high school wrestling tournament.

Warriors fall to Edmonton in return from road swing Randy Palmer | Moose Jaw Express

Former Moose Jaw Warriors forward Vince Loschiavo scored a pair of goals – including the game winner with 6:22 remaining in the game – as the Edmonton Oil Kings took a 3-2 victory at Mosaic Place in Western Hockey League action on Thursday. A tight-checking, back-and-forth game broke open in the third period, with the two teams combining for four goals. Josh Brook scored the Warriors’ lone marker of

the period, while Andrew Fyten scored Edmonton’s other goal. Quinn Benjafield and Trey Fix-Wolansky each had two assists for the Oil Kings. “It wasn’t our best effort in the game tonight; our line gave up kind of a weak one there for the game winner, so we have to be better,” said Warriors forward Tristan Langan. “And we had a lot of penalties tonight, we need to stay out of the box and capitalize on our power play chances.” Carson Denomie scored Moose Jaw’s first goal 7:05 into the second period. The contest continued a recent trend of the Tribe surrendering nearly 40 shots a game, with the Oil Kings finishing the contest with 39 total. That made for another busy night for Warriors goaltender Adam Evanoff, as he made 36 saves, including a penalty shot stop on Loschiavo in the second period. The Warriors had 33 shots on Edmonton netminder Todd Scott. Moose Jaw finished 1-for-5 on the power play, Edmonton was 0-for-3. The contest was only the Warriors second at home since Jan. 15, as 12 of their last 13 games have been on the road. “It’s always exciting to come home after a trip like

We have to get going here for the final stretch.” The Warriors fell to 30-15-6-2 on the season with the loss and are now 10 points back of Saskatoon for second in the East Division as well as seven points up on Red Deer in the Eastern Conference Wild Card standings.

Warriors fly with the Snowbirds

Langan, Salmond, Almeida and Ormsby have trip of a lifetime with 431 Air Demonstration Squadron Randy Palmer | Moose Jaw Express

Four members of the Moose Jaw Warriors had the experience of a lifetime as they took to the air with 431 Air Demonstration Squadron – better known as the Snowbirds – on Tuesday morning. Tristin Langan, Brodan Salmond, Justin Almeida and Luke Ormsby all took part in the special training flight, an annual event that offers members of the team a chance to experience just what it’s like to be part of and fly with one of the best airshow teams in the world. “It was an incredible experience, right from watching them and their professionalism going over everything and their plans for getting in the air,” Langan said. “Then finally suiting up and getting in there; it’s wild the things they do and how close they are together... you always have to work as a team, you have to trust each other up there because you can’t make a mistake. It’s really cool.” As Langan alluded to, Warriors were able to take part in essentially the full Snowbirds experience, right from their ground preparation to full-on formation flying. And as could be expected, there’s a lot to it. “We didn’t go up with them the first day, but we were able to go through the whole process and learn about getting strapped in and the ejection seat and all that stuff,”

Moose Jaw Warriors Tristin Langan, Justin Almeida, Luke Ormsby and Brodan Salmond flew with the Snowbirds recently. Moose Jaw Warriors photo Salmond said. “That was really cool to see and then we got to go up the next day. That was a pretty surreal moment the whole time we were in the air; we were able to just take it all in.” It isn’t often that one has a chance to fly in a modified jet fighter and with the opportunity came all sorts of nerves leading up to the event. “I think we were all really nervous, but once we got up there and did some formation stuff it was easier to relax more,” Langan said. “The pilots were really cool about telling us what they were going to

do, so once we were going, it was a lot of fun.” Salmond felt much the same way, even if the air isn’t his favourite place to be. “I’m not even good with commercial flights or roller coasters or anything like that,” he said with a laugh. “But once you’re up there, it isn’t too bad.” The pilots naturally put the players through their paces with some of their maneuvers, especially some of the high G-force turns and rolls. “We went three Gs at the start and he asked if I was alright and I said ‘yeah’.

Then all of a sudden, he was pulling five Gs and I was stuck in my seat and couldn’t move, it was awesome,” Langan said, adding that the special G-suit designed to keep pilots conscious in hard rolls and turns took its toll. “My legs were so sore when I got off I couldn’t even walk.” “That was really cool…I don’t know how to describe it; it’s a pretty unique feeling,” added Salmond. “Just a lot of pressure on your body and once you’re upside down in a loop it kind of goes away and you’re floating. It was pretty fun.” Having a chance to see the kind of precision flying the Snowbirds do on a day-today basis was especially impressive. “It definitely opened my eyes to all the stuff... I didn’t even know they flew that close, you look out the window and it’s like you can almost touch the other plane,” Salmond said. “And they said they weren’t even as close as they usually are in their shows, so that was crazy to me.” The entire experience was one Langan couldn’t recommend enough. “If I could go up again it would be awesome. I was telling the younger guys that if you get asked to go up, take the opportunity because it’s really incredible, a once in a lifetime thing,” he said.

Whitehead sets all-time ACAC and CCAA kills record in volleyball Lethbridge College standout sets new national mark with 1,109th kill as Kodiaks continue banner season Randy Palmer | Moose Jaw Express

There’s little question former Central Cyclones standout Dax Whitehead was a heck of a volleyball player back in his high school days – you don’t play for the provincial team unless you have some skills to draw on. But as good as he was then, Whitehead is that much better now. As in record-setting better. Whitehead, in his fifth season with the Lethbridge College Kodiaks of the Alberta Colleges Athletic Association, has steadily set new marks in kills the last two seasons. First, it was the Lethbridge all-time school mark. Then it was 1,000 kills, one of only four players to reach that number in Alberta Colleges Athletic Association history. And finally, on Jan. 27, it was the all-time ACAC and Canadian Colleges Athletic Association kills mark of 1,109.

That’s the kind of career you can definitely hang your hat on. And interestingly enough, it’s all as much an overall surprise for Whitehead as it is an honour. “I thought I was going to be a one- or two-year guy in the program and then I’d start my work and career,” Whitehead said. “I was thinking to myself ‘this is fun, I might as well do it’. Then after the third year there was a legitimate shot at becoming the college’s all time kill leader, and after I got that, I realized I was getting close to 1,000. Then after I hit 1,000 I realized I’m getting close to the all-time and I had to keep going.” Whitehead set the new mark just down the highway from where he grew up – during a 3-0 win over the Briercrest College Clippers. He passed Keyano College player Blazej Pellowski for both the ACAC and CCAA records. It’s all been a learning experience for Whitehead along NOTICE TO CREDITORS Moose Jaw’s Dax Whitehead is joined by his family the way, especially when it came to the transition from after setting the all-time CCAA kills record.

Cody Davis scored the shootout winner as the Moose Jaw Generals stayed alive in their playoff hunt with a 5-4 win over the Notre Dame Argos in Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League action Wednesday. The victory gives the Generals a 15-22-2-1 record as they remain eight points back of the Saskatoon Contacts, now with four games remaining. Two of those are against the Contacts, including Saturday (1:30 p.m., Mosaic Place) and Monday in Saskatoon. The win over the Argos showed the local squad isn’t going to go down without a fight, either – Ben Wourms-Rowe scored with 1:35 remaining in the game and Steven Kesslering then added the tying goal with 20 seconds left to send things into overtime. Casey McDonald gave the Generals a 1-0 lead out of the first period and WourmsRowe made it 2-0 with a power play marker three minutes into the second. The Argos scored four straight goals from that point on, though, setting up the late-game dramatics. Reece Hodson turned aside 34 shots, including all three Notre Dame attempts in the shootout. In addition to Saturday’s game against the Contacts, the Generals are also in action Sunday when they take on the Battlefords Stars (1:30 p.m., Mosaic Place).

Co-op honours four long-standing employees at retirement banquet Matthew Gourlie

In this day and age, not many people spend their whole careers with one company. Tuesday, the Moose Jaw Co-op honoured four employees who spent all or most of their working careers at the Co-op. “It’s becoming a rare thing when you can gather to celebrate 20, 30 or 40 years in a company,” said Greg Karmazenuk, who is retiring after managing the meat department in Moose Jaw for 22 years. “I am both fortunate and proud to have worked for the Co-op for 41 years. It doesn’t happen unless you have the support of your team members and great leadership from the management team as well. I was fortunate enough, in my career, to have both.” Karmazenuk, Rick Cartman, Steve McDougall and Steven Ward were all honoured at a retirement banquet at the Heritage Inn. Recently retired Moose Jaw Co-op general manager Gerry Onyskevitch also spoke at the event. Cartman said he didn’t even really know what the Co-op was when he first started working there as a 15-year-old in 1974 in

Steven Ward, right, Greg Karmazenuk, Steve McDougall and Rick Cartman were honoured by the Moose Jaw Co-op at a retirement banquet Tuesday. Matthew Gourlie photograph his small town. His mom said he should get a job and that the Co-op was hiring. He returned to the company in 1983 in Swift Current and then moved to Tisdale and finally to Moose Jaw, where he has served as the grocery department manager.

He said whether it was a first job or your career, working at the Co-op was a great experience. “I saw a place where sometimes people started out as a student. Sometimes people started mid-career, but there was a good opportunity for a lot of people to

work at the Co-op,” Cartman said. “I’ve been proud of it. Some of my staff have gone on to become teachers, nurses, politicians, pastors, GMs... there’s been a variety or people. “It was a good career for me.” Karmazenuk began working at his local Co-op as a stock clerk in Carman, Man. when he was 17 and worked his way up to running the meat department. Onyskevitch praised Karmazenuk for helping turn around the local meat department when he moved to Moose Jaw 22 years ago and making it profitable by offering the quality that customers expected. McDougall was a stock clerk in the grocery department. He worked at the local Co-op for 39 years and met his wife there. Ward worked as a courtesy clerk in the grocery department. He began working at the Co-op as a work experience placement and became a staple of the store. His co-workers remembered his ever-present smile and said the customers were already missing him.

Local home buyer’s market continues

On the Front Porch

By Ron Walter | For Moose Jaw Express

Continuing on a slide, average house prices in Moose Jaw slipped last month below $200,000 for the first time in over five years. The average price of a local home sold on MLS in January dipped 9/10ths of one per cent to $199,600, according to the Association of Regina Realtors monthly report. Price was down 8.3 per cent from $217,600 a year ago. Fewer for sale signs went up. New listings of 50 properties declined from 63 last January. “The bright spots right now might be the amount of choice that buyers have,� commented Rob Rayner, manager of operations for the association. “That could be very positive heading into spring.� He acknowledged this is a buyer’s market.

Blues Buster

The first couple months of the year in our Saskatchewan climate prove to be challenging with lack of sun, cold temperatures, long winter and other situations unique to our area. I think we have all felt a little unmotivated, sad or discouraged in the early parts of the New Year. I admit I have. As I grow “more matureâ€? I realize there are some pretty basic ways to combat the seasonal blues. These are some tips I’ve learned that help me out of my slightly sad state and maybe they will help you get a leg up on winter. First of all, throw open the blinds and curtains and let the sun shine in or at least lighten up the room. With the sun on a lower angle in the winter, it will shine in the windows nicely. Take your daily dose of vitamin D while lying in the sun and have a nap on the couch or on the floor (as my dad used to do). Secondly, purpose to get yourself out of the house and meet someone for coffee or even “people watchâ€? in the mall or restaurant. I’m a fairly independent individual and don’t like to ask for help but I took a leap and messaged a friend a couple weeks back to meet for tea. It helped me to get through a slump I was in. After writing “Unfinished Businessâ€? a couple weeks ago, I actually inspired myself to get a list of projects I’d like to finish and started to tackle them. It took my mind off of the desperate cold and long winter and gave me a goal to work towards with a feeling of fulfillment when I could cross each project off my list. There is something to be said about tackling that to-do list! It was satisfying to see the results of completing the Christmas quilt I’d started for my sister, of painting an armoire that has needed some updating for years and tackling my pile of recipes I’ve collected for a couple decades. If I can get out into the fresh air, this also helps to improve my mood. When Hubby cuts wood, I like to help stack it; there’s something positive about working together in the fresh air and being productive. Take a brisk 277 Iroquois St W walk, even if just around the block or down the lane.

Keeping grains clean will keep access to global markets By Ron Walter | For Agri-Mart Express

WALLER

Mervyn Peter Reader Mervyn Peter Reader passed away on Monday, February 11, 2019 at the Lakeview Pioneer Lodge in Wakaw, SK at the age of 73 years. Mervyn was born December 2, 1945 to Peter and Lily Reider. Mervyn lived in White Fox, SK, until he was 6, when they moved to Prince George, BC. The family moved back to White Fox, SK. 3 years later, where they stayed through his school years. Merv moved to Saskatoon, and while there, began dating Sharon Walker. They married on July 2, 1966. During this time, Merv started working for what would become the Sask Water Dept., spending over 30 years with the company. Merv and his family settled in Moose Jaw, but his work saw him travelling all over the province. Towards the end of his career, he and Sharon moved to the town of Wakaw. After his retirement in 2003, Merv took his love of travelling and turned it into a retirement job, as he began trucking for Yanke. He and Sharon were able to travel all over Canada and the US, visiting family and friends along the way. Merv loved his time spent coaching his sons, and being the “team dad” for countless kids over the years on the ball diamonds, football fields, and basketball courts all over the country. He was even more proud watching his grandchildren perform in games, matches, concerts, and plays. Merv leaves behind many who loved him, including his two sons: Shane (Reanne) and Jamie (Cheri). His grandchildren: Emilie Reider, Sophie Reider, Treyton Reider, and Logan Reider. His siblings: Edwin Reider (Eileen), Walt Reider, and Debbie Starkell, as well as many nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. He was preceded by his parents Peter and Lily Reider, his wife, Sharon, and his son, Shannon. A special thank you the nurses and staff at the Lakeview Pioneer Lodge nursing home for the loving care they have shown him. A graveside service was held at the Garrick Community Cemetery on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 at 11:30 a.m. followed by a luncheon at the Garrick hall. Donations in memory of Merv may be directed to a charity of personal choice. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Marc Blondeau of Kushneryk Funeral Service, Wakaw, SK, 306-2334403.

Beverly Ann Waller, aged 73 years of Drinkwater, SK passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 14th, 2019 after a long fight with Alzheimer’s disease. She was born on August 24th, 1945 to Gordon and Anne Williams. Bev will be sorely missed and is survived by her husband, Ken Waller; children: Kim (Kevin) Gulka, Kris (Wendy) Waller, and Stacey (Aaron) Gamble; grandchildren: Krista, Dayna, Naomi, Morgan, Sydney, and Kaleb; brother, Daryl Williams; sisters: Sandra (Gord) Miller, Karen (Emerson) Koch, Kathy (Jack) Gadd, and Terry (Stu) Gadd; as well as many nieces and nephews. Bev was raised on a farm near Bayard, SK and graduated from Briercrest High School. She married Ken in April 1967 and settled into their forever home on a farm just outside of Drinkwater, SK. She was a busy lady with an active hand in farming, raised 3 great kids, played baseball (coached by her mom Anne Williams), and gardening…using her 3 kids as slave labour. In 1984, Bev started working in the kitchen at St Anthony’s Home and later moved over to Providence Place, retiring in 2008, never to see that place again!! Little did she know as Alzheimer’s took her deeper into confusion, she returned to Providence Place, but as a resident this time, after a knee replacement caused the illness to take a much stronger hold. Special thanks to the wonderful staff at Providence Place where friends and acquaintances continued to care for Bev during her remaining years. The Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, February 23rd, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. in Moose Jaw Funeral Home. Chery Thul officiated and interment will take place in Drinkwater Cemetery at a later date. As an expression, donations in Bev’s name may be made to The Moose Jaw Humane Society, Box 1658 Station Main, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 7K7. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Michelle Surtees Funeral Director 306-693-4550 www. moosejawfuneralhome.com

Crop producers need to do their part in keeping access to international markets

for their grain. Canada needs to maintain its reputation as a safe reliable supplier. That was the message from a panel led by Karen Churchill of Cereals Canada at Cropsphere this year. Access is crucial; 90 per cent of canola, over 80 per cent of wheat and over 80 per cent of pulse crops must be exported. Her presentation noted risks to market access come from different requirements by buying countries. “Canada’s exports must meet the needs of our customers which are not always the same as Canadian regulations,” she said. Exports have been impacted with the entire 2018 durum crop lost to the Italian market from safety concern pressures over glyphosate residues. China turned back canola shipments over blackleg. The European Union in 2011 rejected lentils over glyphosate residues with rejected cargoes and associated costs of product recall reselling the cargoes and demurrage. That was addressed by handling and segregation of crops, development of rapid MRL tests and communications with growers. Importing country markets regulate crop imports to protect plant, animal and human health with complex rules paying close attention to pesticides, pesticide residues, seed technology and biotechnology as well as diseases like fusarium and blackleg. Different standards of maximum pesticide residues (MRLs) come into play in various markets such as the European Union. The industry is meeting the challenges with a “keep it clean” campaign urging growers to prevent rejection of shipments by best practice uses of pesticides, fungicides and insecticides but absolute farmer co-operation is needed. Farmers can inform themselves about best practices and trends on the website www.keepingitclean.ca The website offers tips, lists acceptable chemicals and information on meeting requirements to keep export market access. Grain handlers at port can trace grain back to the farm where it was grown. Farmers should use only acceptable pesticides, always read and follow label instructions, store crops properly, use infection reducing practices and grow disease resistant varieties.
