2019 PRISM Awards highlight influential women at annual gala By Larissa Kurz

The 6th annual PRISM Awards, presented by Business Women of Moose Jaw (BWMJ), spent the evening of Mar. 2 celebrating the influence of 21 local women, highlighting their accomplishments and contributions to the community. The event took place at the Macoun Lounge at Saskatchewan Polytechnic, and presented awards to seven women in the categories of Perseverance, Role Model, Influential, Successful, Mentor, Youth Achievement, and Lifetime Achievement. Each nominee was carefully chosen based on personal and community achievements, as well as their tremendous influence in the community. This year’s theme was Strength and Sparkle, which BWMJ President Sharleen Froats says is fitting to describe this year’s nominees, and also perfectly describes the exclusively-designed necklaces from Fifth Avenue Collections presented as this year’s awards. Award winners for each category are as follows: Emmy Barr, Perseverance; Nicole Radfelder, Role Model; Crystal Froese, Influential; Kyra Klassen, Successful; Bonnie Nelson, Mentor; Kaia Isenor, Youth Achievement; Betty Butler, Lifetime Achievement. This year’s guest speaker was Christine Boyczuk, the recipient

The spring legislative session began earlier this week. I look forward to the challenges of keeping Saskatchewan growing and the opportunity to present Moose Jaw interests at the provincial level. At this time of the year, the daily trips to and from the legislature can be a challenge in itself with little sign of winter coming to an end. While the first snowfall of the season is always the hardest to adjust to, significant snowfall and colder than average temperatures this past month have presented challenges of their own, reminding us to stay up to date with conditions and drive with extra care and attention. My 15-year-old grandson with his learners’ licence is a positive reminder of safety on the roads. While new drivers have a lot to learn, they conscientiously practice to follow every rule of the road. Stop signs mean coming to a complete stop, not just slowing down. They make a complete stop before turning right on a red light; signal and shoulder checked before changing lanes. This is all pretty basic driving knowledge that many of us may overlook in our busy lives. Making a habit of being a conscientious driver in good road conditions will decrease the chance of vehicle damage, time loss, or worse yet, injury, when road conditions are less than ideal. SGI offers some important winter driving tips. - Clear snow from your vehicle, including headlights and taillights, and be sure your windows are completely defrosted before you drive.

Sometimes, when venturing out in wintry conditions, we have a false sense of security just because we have a cellphone. Even if we’re travelling on a major highway, there can be delays because of weather conditions or a collision. Having a full tank of gas, a safety kit, snacks, water, and warm clothing or blankets is very important when heading out. If you are stranded, always stay with your vehicle. At any age, keeping up good driving habits requires a deliberate effort. SGI has published a booklet, “The Mature Driver”. This booklet is available at motor license issuers or online at The Saskatchewan Safety Council offers refresher courses for older drivers and defensive driving courses. The SGI Safe Driver Recognition Program rewards safe drivers with a discount on their vehicle insurance. Depending on how long drivers have been incident-free, they can earn a safety rating point giving them from two to twenty-five percent off their vehicle insurance. On the other hand, the program also ensures drivers who demonstrate risky behaviours pay their share in financial penalties, helping offset the costs of the discount for safe drivers. The number of points lost varies based on the driving incident. Penalties are applied to even common infractions like speeding, changing lanes at an unsafe time, or failing to stop at a stop sign. Thank you to our highway crews, our city crews, our tow truck drivers and all First Responders who do their best to prevent tragedy in our winter weather. The rest of us can do our part to keep ourselves and others safe.

Canada updates animal handling codes By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express

About $4.6 million has been spent EXPRESS updating codes of animal welfare in Canada. The Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada funding is intended to improve the care and handling of farm animals. Updating included transportation codes of practice for all animals, dairy codes that account for industry changes and consumer demands, goat handling codes, with development of a new code for farmed fish to respond to consumer concerns. The new codes were developed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) in consultation with stakeholders.


The objective is ensuring animals are properly prepared for transport, arrive at a destination safely, are suitably fed and watered. The CFIA notes that 98 per cent of shipments are in compliance with the new regulations. The new regulations, effective in February 2020, will allow the industry one year to comply before fully enforced. The Health of Animals Act regulation development involved 51,000 comments from 11,000 stakeholders in the industry from producers, veterinarians, processors, lawyers to animal rights organizations. The agriculture industry provides $25 billion a year income to the country. Ron Walter can be reached at

By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

Was a Saskatchewan premier responsible for east/west political discord? From current political outrage in the three Prairie provinces arises a matter pursued seemingly by a few on the fringe of reality – separation of the West into one country. That thought gains credibility when Brad Wall, the former premier of Saskatchewan, acts as a ranting mouthpiece for an Alberta-based political action committee called the Buffalo Project. Another former Saskatchewan resident, multi-millionaire philanthropist Brett Wilson, has taken to ranting about the matter, pointing out the potential for separatist sentiment. Wilson’s net worth declined from $1.5 billion in 2012 to $300 million. Is there a poor house for billionaires? His financial decline is never mentioned by media airing his rants. The name Buffalo Project leads observers to wonder if the underlying goal is separation from Canada. Before Saskatchewan and Alberta became provinces in 1905, the territorial governor recommended one province called Buffalo. Prime Minister John A. MacDonald told him out of fear that one day Buffalo’s growth would outweigh Ontario and Quebec clout in the federation. Over 114 years later, that clout still can’t outweigh the eastern power. Combined Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba have 18 per cent of the nation’s population and 19

per cent of income. On paper, a split by these three provinces seems viable. The new country, according to 2017 data, would rank 47th in the world for GDP, (national income) behind Hong Kong and ahead of Chile. That supposes the new country’s national income would remain at that level. No guarantee there. Buffalo, or whatever it would be named, would need to export about one-third of its production to maintain prosperity. In a landlocked new country, that can’t get approval from a neighbouring province, B.C. for a pipeline, how will it export goods? Outside of a seasonal port at Churchill, there is no way to move goods unless the United States helps — for a price. Taxes would increase to renegotiate trade agreements, develop foreign diplomatic posts, police and military presence as well as a central bank and new currency. The new currency would be even more subject to oil price fluctuations than the loonie. A new Buffalo country could be viable once a generation of residents has sacrificed personally and financially — unless American influence dominated, and prosperity reigned. In any such provincial union, Saskatchewan and Manitoba are destined to be poor country cousins, subject to the whims of Albertans. Saskatchewan has 18 per

c e n t of the population, 16 per cent of GDP. Manitoba is no better off. Next time time-ranters suggest separating the West into one country, let them know the reality. Rapid population growth is the only way for the West to remove political grievances with the East. A western prime minister, Stephen Harper, was unable to change western clout. He had to cater to Eastern voters. Population growth outstripping the East would require massive immigration – not a situation lots of westerners desire. The West is destined to political deadlock unless significant numbers of voters join ranks with the dominating political party as in the1940 election when the West sent 33 Liberals out of 60 MPs to Ottawa. Eleven Liberals were elected from 62 MPs in 2016. The West has been ticked off at Ottawa, and at the Liberals, ever since federal equalization payments were formally discussed in 1957. Ironically, a Saskatchewan premier James Gardiner started the struggle for this shared cash to bail out his near-bankrupt province in the 1930s. Ron Walter can be reached at

The political leadership of this country continues to wade knee deep in the bureaucratic bs associated with the SNC Lavalin scandal; and it’s getting piled higher every day. Even for those of us who aren’t really interested in the political arena, we can see the writing on the wall Joan Ritchie for Trudeau. He continEDITOR ues to do everything he can to cover his butt; the latest being...switching around his cabinet so that his closest allies in the camp are protecting him. It reminds me of someone who tells a lie and then continues to lie until all hell breaks loose. And to top it all off, he continues to spend Canadians money like a drunken sailor. To add injury to insult, the Huawei affair is now gaining momentum as Canada prepares to extradite their CFO Meng Wanzhou, and rightly so... they should have done it long time ago and avoided getting caught up in this political battle. But now, China is pressing charges because Canada has “violated her rights according to the charter of rights?” I don’t know if I have it right but I’m wondering why she, an executive from another country that may own a house here in Canada, has rights under Canada’s charter of rights? Now lets look across Canada’s southern border where the democrats are on a witch hunt. The whole reason for their investigation was to find out if there was Russian collusion. Instead, those blood hungry hounds during the court case of Michael Cohen were listening with itching ears for every last piece of dirt on their president and all of it had nothing to do with Russian collusion; I’m not saying he is spotless and without fault in his life’s affairs but this is a bonified witchhunt if I’ve ever seen one. I really don’t know how he can take all of the negative attacks on him and his family; there must be a bigger internal drive that keeps him facing forward and upward. That is one of the biggest negatives I can see for people to run in politics, whether it is federal, provincial or local...your life is not your own and whether you are right or wrong, you are damned if you do and damned if you don’t. I think people need to realize that all leaders have an opportunity to conduct themselves with integrity and prove they are worthy of their office. Some do and some don’t.

Pig spleen weather prognosticator calling reprieve from cold Matthew Gourlie

If you are looking for some good news as a brutally cold February drew to a close in Saskatchewan, Jeff Woodward is predicting a warm start to March. Mind you, Woodward uses pig spleens for his weather prognostication. Woodward’s unusual method of predicting the weather goes back generations to his ancestors in Sweden. When they would butcher a hog at the start of the winter, they would notice that the amount of fat deposits on the spleen would differ, indicating the nature of the winter the hog was preparing for. “It’s an old tradition that has been passed down from my ancestors from Scandinavia. I think it was probably fairly common several hundred years ago when they were preparing for the winter, that they would slaughter a pig or an animal and then they would observe things on the animal that they would interpret as indicating what the weather would be like,” Woodward said. “You look at the fat content and see how much reserve was being put away for the winter, meaning it might be colder than normal… that kind of thing.” It might have held more significance in Sweden hundreds of years ago, but Woodward said that his ancestors car- Jeff Woodward, the pig spleen weather prognosticaried on the tradition when they settled in southwest Sas- tor, analyzes the fat content of a pig’s spleen to annually predict the weather.

Three Canadian projects trying to reduce cost of lab-grown meat



JUSTIN TRUDEAU ATTEMPTING TO COVER-UP SNC-LAVALIN AFFAIR: LUKIWSKI Ottawa ON – Tom Lukiwski, Member of Parliament for Moose Jaw – Lake Centre - Lanigan, today raised concerns over Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s attempts to cover-up the SNC-Lavalin Affair. “It’s clear that Justin Trudeau is attempting to cover-up the SNC-Lavalin Affair and that his Liberal MPs are helping him,” said Lukiwski. “The Prime Minister’s story keeps changing nearly every day. This fact, along with high-profile resignations and anonymously-sourced smear campaigns, suggests this is not your ordinary political scandal.” Media began reporting in early February that the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) pressured Justice Minister and Attorney General, Jody Wilson-Raybould, to intervene in the criminal prosecution of Montreal engineering and construction giant SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. Now we are learning that Justin Trudeau met with Ms. Wilson-Ray-

By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

Three Canadian projects plan to create laboratory grown meat that competes with EXPRESS range grown beef. Called cellular agriculture, the process uses cell cultures taken from animals to grow cultured meat. Advocates of lab meat promote the clean lab meat on the basis of a smaller environmental footprint with no need to kill animals. A group led by Peter Stogios, a senior research associate at the University of Toronto, won a $250,000 grant from Washington-based Good Food Institute to develop lab meat. His was one of 14 lab meat projects awarded funds for cell-based meat research. Stogios told the Canadian Press the biggest hurdle for cultured meat is cost of the building block broth. The broth is made up of expensive minerals, vitamins, and amino acids among other matters. “Can we create those protein molecules, those growth factors better, cheaper and actually make them more potent?” he asked. His four-member team will consider growth factors from other species, such as birds and fish, trying to mix those with cow cells. That phase should take six months. If a growth factor or multiple that works well is discovered, the team will start an engineering phase to make it more potent. This phase could take a year and a half. Vancouver-based biotechnology firm Appleton Meats is working on development of a lab-grown hamburger patty. University of Alberta educated cell biologist Matt Anderson-Baron works with a team at Future Fields to develop lab-cultured meat. Last year, Science Trends estimated cost of growing one pound of lab meat was $2,400 US — down from $300,000 US five years ago. The author estimated a $5 lab grown hamburger cost would be available by 2020.


bould two weeks after the Justice Department had already denied SNC-Lavalin a deferred prosecution agreement, not before as the Prime Minister has suggested. If the decision on the agreement had already been made, it’s difficult not to interpret the Prime Minister’s discussion with Ms. Wilson-Raybould as direct pressure to intervene in the prosecution. “This latest information is the strongest evidence so far that the PMO inappropriately – and potentially illegally – tried to influence this criminal prosecution.” said Lukiwski. “Justin Trudeau made a promise to Canadians that his government would be open and transparent, and he has betrayed that promise.” Conservatives MPs on the Justice Committee will continue to demand a fulsome and thorough investigation into this matter. And Conservatives will continue to explore all legal options to hold Justin Trudeau to account for this cover-up. Tom Lukiwski MP for Moose Jaw – Lake Centre – Lanigan

Milk to fridge, treats to freezer; what is your name?

As a young whipper snapper, I never considered that one day I too would be a senior citizen. Based on my knowledge of being young once, a decade or so ago, most young people have other things on their minds, and getting older isn’t top of mind. But then one morning, seemingly without warning, there it is — the year that one becomes eligible for the youngest age seniors’ discount offered in restaurants and on public transit. And then the first pension cheque shows Joyce Walter up in the bank account and it is official. For Moose Jaw Express I confess I always teased my Mother when she would wander back from another room in the house and look bewildered as to why she had been there in the first place. Then the reason would dawn on her and off she would bustle to complete the errand from her first trip. Of course, with the ego of youth, I suggested she should make notes to herself so she wouldn’t wear out her shoes and the carpet with all those extra steps. She’d reply: “You will be old someday,” and I would laugh, convinced that when I did get “old” my memory cells would never let me down. Fat lot I knew. And so now I’m getting older each day, and perhaps I’m imagining it, but I have the distinct impression I’m putting on unnecessary steps because I forget why I went into the laundry room with the frozen treats or what reason I might have had for looking in the cupboard and complaining that I can’t find the milk carton. I have lovely conversations with folks whose faces are very familiar, but whose names escape me — at least until we get home and the light bulb flicks on. Then I feel badly because I didn’t call that person by name. Housemate says I should

just admit that I can’t remember a name but that would be suggesting to perhaps perfect strangers that my memory is on pause mode. Maybe in 15 years or so. I’ve attended conferences where one of the speakers was a memory expert who had all sorts of tricks to stimulate one’s memory and to keep it sharp. I have those course notes, but for the life of me, I can’t remember where I stored them. Nor can I remember any of his tips. That must mean I wasn’t paying attention at his workshop or that he was a poor teacher. Then recently a newspaper headline attracted my attention, advising that help is available when memory fails. I thought it might be the work of that convention speaker, this time on a new forum, with a new audience. Instead the story was about aids for individuals with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. But as I read more, I think some of those aids might help me as I wander here and there trying to remember some piece of information that I know is important. The kits contain CDs and DVDs to spark memories and help with conversations on such topics as farm days, fashion, pets, games, the 1950s, even birthdays, with suitable accompanying music. If I were to ever need one of the kits, I would like one with polka and two-step music, and maybe some jive tunes, and definitely songs from an accordion — some of my favourite things. In the meantime, I will apologize posthumously to my parents for laughing at them for being forgetful. Now if I could just remember why I thought I needed to go shopping today. Sigh.

Time for fighting for the environment is over: Vincent Leadership, positivity and working with the public key for forestry and wildlife advocates in the future, says longtime logger and forestry professional Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Bruce Vincent’s presentation to the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation during their 90th annual convention at the Heritage Inn didn’t mince words. Pictures of raging forest fires, dead and dying timberlands and even a river on fire painted a picture of an environment that has been fought over and simultaneously ignored for decades. And enough is enough. The time for fighting over the environment is over, said the long-time forestry and logging advocate. Now’s the time for dialogue, education and engagement, all with the focus of showing the public just what forestry means to the environment and how positive progress in those areas can make an immense difference to the future, not only for the industry but the planet itself. That was the message Vincent carried through his keynote address, as he brought his own personal experience and beliefs forged through involvement and contact with the public to the podium. “I was a leader of the movement to get common-sense forestry put in place in the States. I confused fighting with leading and while fighting made the front page of newspapers, it did nothing for forestry and nothing for our culture,” he said shortly after his address and a long line of book signing. “So, we had to back away from that and learn how to lead.” Vincent comes from a position of experience. A third-generation forester and logger, he has spoken at events throughout the United States, Canada and all over the world. He’s testified before Congress on resource issues and has appeared on programs such as ‘60 Minutes’. Vincent’s list of awards and recognitions is long, having been named the National Forest Advocate of the Year, received the Presidential Preserve America Award and named the Timberman of the Year in Montana, just to name a few.

Environmental advocate and third generation forester and logger Bruce Vincent delivers the keynote address at the 90th annual Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation conference on Saturday.

So when he speaks, people tend to listen. And his message is now one of unity, as opposed to antagonism and ridicule. “Leading’s first step is listening,” Vincent explained. “What does the public think is going on, because they are four generations from the farm; they have the Disney Channel; the wolves don’t raise rabbits in real life. So, we have to hear them, then craft solutions with them that they find acceptable and we can make work on the ground. When we do that, actually do lead and own the environmental movement, it’s ours and things change. “Laughing at them and having convoys and rallies, that doesn’t do anything other than antagonize people... there might be a time to fight again, but that’s when leading has been exhausted.” While much of Vincent’s work has focussed on the world of forestry and logging, he feels similar issues are taking place in this part of the world when it comes to managing the prairies. “There’s no difference between proper

forest management and proper prairie management,” he said matter-of-factly. “The question is ‘what do we want?’ What do people in Saskatchewan want this place to look like in 200 years? That’s a starting point, and we have to back up from it. How do we get there?” For that answer, Vincent recommends a bit of reading, specifically the Pulitzer Prize winning book ‘1491’ by New York Times writer Charles Mann. Mann’s exhaustive research into the pre-Columbus years in North America paints a vastly different picture compared to the one taught in history classes. “This area has been managed by humans for 10,000 years,” Vincent said. “It’s a really good look at what was going on here. We don’t get the true story; there was a vibrant existent culture in North and South America, and they managed the forests; they managed the prairies; they managed the wildlife for 10,000 years. It wasn’t this pristine untouched mecca that we were told it was. It was a garden. “So how do we replicate that and understand that humans need stuff?”

Thing is, damage has been done. A lot of it. And nature isn’t happy about it “We can’t pretend that nature, after 150, 200 years of European settlement, will weigh in and be benign,” Vincent said. “So we need to weigh in and talk to the public and straight-up find out what the issues are and then deal with them... society as a whole is starving for hope, that there’s a place for man on this planet and we aren’t going to destroy it and we’re moving incrementally forward.” To that end, Vincent makes a salient point. “The Cuyahoga River is not burning,” he said. “You can fish and swim in the Great Lakes again. Are there issues? Absolutely. They’re global issues we have to deal with. And just locking our environment up because we want to have a playground? That could drive environmental chaos in countries that are still developing and trying to feed themselves. “So we have to be smart about this, engage the public and do the right thing to save and protect the environment.”

Norway arrives for ‘Moose Summit’

Stor-Elvdal deputy mayor visiting Moose Jaw for talks over largest moose controversy Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

All the talk and back-and-forth controversy over the world’s largest moose statue finally came to a head a few moments after Moose Jaw mayor Fraser Tolmie and Stor-Elvdal deputy mayor Linda Otnes Henriksen stepped outside for a photo op with Mac the Moose. Henriksen broke out a cell phone, cued up a tune, and moments later the duo were dancing to the ‘Moose Truce’ song despite the bitterly cold weather on Saturday morning. Such is the turn the great moose debate has taken, as Henriksen arrived in Moose Jaw late Friday to kick off a week-long ‘Moose Summit’ in the Friendly City. After her first-ever breakfast in Canada on Saturday, Henriksen and Tolmie gathered in front of an assembled media horde at the Tourism Moose Jaw building to discuss the ongoing, er, ‘war’ between Moose Jaw and Stor-Elvdal over the largest Alces alces 3D physical reproduction on the planet. Interestingly enough, this was one occasion where it was a good thing that a first impression didn’t stick. “We were coming in from the airport last night, Mayor Tolmie drove us past Mac and my first thought was ‘it’s tiny, it looks so little’, because we were out on the road and the buildings were around,” Henriksen said to laughs from the gathered reporters. “But once I got here today, he’s huge, and he looks really nice. He’s something to be proud of.” The entire moose controversy developed out of a discovery by the social media duo Justin and Greg, who put together a video pointing out that Mac was no longer the largest moose statue in the world, that a silver reproduction outside of a small town in Norway had taken over first place. CJME radio personality John Gormley got wind of the international incident, joined Justin and Greg on his daily morning program to discuss the situation, and a worldwide media storm was born. “When I first got the first message asking if I wanted to do a live interview for a T.V. show in Canada, I just didn’t know what to believe,” Henriksen said. “I was so surprised, and I just said to myself ‘okay, you can do this, you’re not just representing yourself, you’re representing the whole municipality and all of Norway’. So my face has been out there all this time and I felt like I got thrown into the deep end of the pool, just trying to make it as everything happened. “But once you have a couple of interviews, things get easier and better and things have worked out really well.” The back-and-forth has seen duelling songs, political jests and – most importantly – a sense of fun and goodwill

Henriksen was greeted by a host of well-wishers on her first visit to the Mac the Moose statue at the Tourism Moose Jaw building.

Henriksen’s visit is about more than Mac vs. Storelgen, as could be expected. The opportunity to foster relations between two cities on opposite sides of the planet is too good to resist, especially when it comes to what can be done with such a positive relationship. “It’s friendship for the first part, then I’d like to see us have a partnership in the future,” Henriksen said. “That way we can lean on each other and maybe do some marketing together and try to show that even though we’ve had this war going on for quite some time now, we’re actually friends and want to market ourselves and our moose the best way we can.” Moose Jaw mayor Fraser Tolmie and Stor-Elvdal deputy mayor Linda Otnes Henriksen do the ‘moose antlers’ in front of Mac the Moose. between two communities that quite frankly knew little of each other prior to things taking off. That’s what brought Henriksen to Moose Jaw for what promises to be a whirlwind of visits all over the city. “It’s been in news articles and T.V. stories in some of the biggest places in the world and it’s been going on so long I thought we should just get together and talk and show the world we’re friends and want to make a positive thing out of this, make some friendships between our towns,” Henriksen said. Mayor Tolmie has been at the forefront of discussions from the very first reveal and couldn’t be happier with how the publicity and general positivity has developed from day one. “Right now, we’ve been floored by the attention we’ve been given,” Tolmie said. “We did talk about branding our community and it really has taken off, it’s gone viral, and people are talking about the city of Moose Jaw. But beyond that, people are learning about Stor-Elvdal, so there’s been some great synergies and we’re very excited.” While a lot of what has happened since Justin and Greg’s discovery has looked purely organic, there has been a planning component to the whole thing, beginning before the controversy even began as the City of Moose Jaw looked to increase promotion of the community. “When they put out their video, we could have ignored it or responded,” Tolmie said. “We responded and look what’s happened. So this is some success from some of the pre-planning we’ve done. You don’t know what it’s going to look like but when it happens you roll with it. We’ve been getting up at five o’clock in the morning to do interviews in different locations, it’s been amazing and we’re looking forward to what happens in the future.” Tolmie was also quick to give credit to the rest of city council as well – in addition to Couns. Heather Eby and Dawn Luhning being on hand to welcome Henriksen at Tourism Moose Jaw, city representatives will be showing their Norwegian guest all the Moose Jaw sites and activities during her stay here. “This has become such a community thing, and I’m really proud to see council stepping up and helping out as much as they have and will over the next week,” Tolmie said. “It’s great to see so many people embracing this with open arms.” To that end, Henriksen’s impression of the city thus far has been nothing but positive. “I think it’s a really pretty town, I love all the old buildings and how the downtown looks,” she said. “I’ve had a really good impression and I’m looking forward to seeing as much of what you guys have to offer as I can. “Not in the least, the people I’ve met so far, they’ve all been so friendly and welcomed me with open arms. So that’s been so much fun.”

What’s next for Mac and Storelgen? When it comes to Mac the Moose and the world’s largest moose statue, the reality is straightforward and simple. Storelgen – Norway’s silver goliath – is the largest statue of its kind in the world by about 30 centimetres. That’s a simple fact and isn’t going to change. For now. That’s because more than $39,000 has been raised so far to restore Mac to his former stature, courtesy of a $25,000 donation by Moosehead Breweries and an ongoing GoFundMe campaign that has brought in over $14,000 of a planned $50,000. All that money will be put to good use when the time comes, says Moose Jaw mayor Fraser Tolmie. “It’s in the very early stages,” he explained. “We’re having an engineer look into Mac and his lifespan and make sure that what we do is feasible and structurally sound. Once we get a report back on that, Jackie L’Heureux and Tourism Moose Jaw are looking after this and it’s in very capable hands… we trust them to make the right decisions and we’ll see what happens.” Given the number and amount of donations, it’s inevitable that something will happen to enable Mac to retain his crown. Whether that means a larger rack of antlers, longer legs or even a new statue altogether if enough funds are raised is yet to be seen. “There could be more stories, we’re waiting for this to continue and it could be going on for a long time, folks, be prepared,” Tolmie said. “And we’re happy for that because it is such a good news story.” For their part, Norway and Stor-Elvdal deputy mayor Linda Otnes Henriksen are essentially resigned to that happening. “Coming from where I’m from, we would like to have the biggest moose, but there’s nothing we can really do with ours since it is a piece of art,” Henriksen said. “So I’m thinking Canada might have the biggest moose in the future and we’re totally fine with that… I’m just so glad that this attention has raised quite a bit of money for Mac and there will be some work done on him. That’s a great thing that’s come out of this whole thing.” But there is one caveat, one that came up during the first day of the Moose Summit – Storelgen is a decidedly beautiful moose sculpture, and that could be hard for Mac to match. “Around the table this morning, we kind of conceded that,” Tolmie said wryly. “It is a nice piece of art, even if we don’t want to take away from Mac. . . I love Mac, he’s very close and near and dear to our hearts, but that is a shiny moose over there. I know I’ve said he looks like a hood ornament, but that’s just jealousy and please forgive me for my comment, that’s a nice moose and even I’d like to get my picture taken with him.”

Chintzy Moose Jaw City Council decisions continue notorious theme The matter of the mayor’s car allowance was an issue at a recent Moose Jaw City Council budget meeting. The mayor receives $100 a month car allowance. The city manager gets $500 a month. Mayor Fraser Tolmie asked for $500 a month by Ron Walter explaining to his council how much he uses his vehicle on city business and for travel to encourage economic development. Apparently, his argument wasn’t convincing. His motion was defeated with one councillor claiming $500 was just too much. By making the motion to raise his own car allowance, the mayor made the request seem self-serving and easy to block. Had the mayor been able to convince another member of council to make the motion, the self-serving perceptions wouldn’t have existed. Why council denied the mayor’s request is a mystery. Several trips to Regina and back would use his $100

monthly allowance. But then, Moose Jaw council is historically notorious for silly nitpicking decisions. Another $4,800 a year won’t break the city. ––––– When this council was elected a little over two years ago, new councillors promised to overhaul the forever controversial snow clearance policy. In the dying months of 2018, a new policy was adopted. So, you ask: what has changed? To be fair, the new policy hasn’t been enacted to my knowledge; the reason being that snowfall amounts haven’t been large enough to trigger the new actions. This winter has seen the city receive from half an inch to two inches of snow at once, never the amount needed. The consequence: driving on many Moose Jaw streets resembles skating on an ice rink. Perhaps we should promote a provincial or interprovincial driving on ice road-eo. Moose Jaw driver experience would give our residents an advantage in this ice road-eo. Winter travellers to other cities notice bare pavement even though the snow pack is nearly as high as the parking meters in Winnipeg, Minot and Bismarck,

N.D. How can they keep the pavement bare with more snow than Moose Jaw? Maybe we need to send the mayor on a fact-finding mission — with expenses paid. The central snow clearance issue in Moose Jaw has always been policies not addressing the numerous small amounts of snowfall. The policy rightly assumes drivers will have no difficulty driving in these small amounts. Driving becomes difficult and dangerous when an accumulation of small snowfalls builds up and becomes icy. The driving experience is then of the skating rink variety. City crews usually take a blade to the ruts and accumulation of snowfall. What happened this winter has occurred in some others. The blading of many streets left them with smoother, icier surface. The city may as well have used discarded rusty razor blades to clear the streets. This type of snow clearance job might cause the road grader blades to last longer but does little for driver apprehension. Ron Walter can be reached at

Hot Pressure Washers!!

Just a Second Eh?



Everyone wants to be a winner; throughout our lives, the competitive spirit is drilled into our tiny brains by parents, teachers, bosses and coaches. To win is what “it” has always been about, by Dale “bushy” Bush but maybe times are changing and just maybe attitudes are as well. I am as competitive as the next guy. I am sure you will find people who will say I would compete against the next guy to out-compete him, but I am beginning to realize that it might be okay to be…er, second. I can’t believe I said that! That must come from years of me rarely winning. Our nation recently has had to settle (temporarily) for having the second tallest moose in the world. While it was hard to accept, it was also inspiring. Canada is one of about 180 countries in the world and we are the 35th most populated country on this planet. That is one category that being first or second in would be a crowded podium, but between you and me I appreciate the elbow room we have in Canada. We have some things that Canada is in second place

for and that is almost like winning. For instance, Ottawa is the second coldest world capital city. The coldest capital city in the world is Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. I get the shivers just trying to imagine a colder place than Parliament in Ottawa. The smartypantsknowitall-scienceguys are blaming global warming for our colder temperatures but when Ottawa is colder than outer Mongolia I blame the politicians. Canada is second in the world with regards to water quality, behind only Finland, and that is something we should not only be proud of but also endeavour to maintain and possibly improve…cheers! We are also the second highest users of fresh water in the world behind the USA, probably because we have so much of it. Wouldn’t it be nice to be number one in water conservation? I’ll drink to that…again cheers! Canada is second to only Australia when it comes to exporting red meat (beef, buffalo and moose?), but when it comes to the other white meat, pork, Denmark kicks us right in the butt roast. With these two second places, it should come as no surprise to be second in the world in water usage and that is a factor in being second to the USA in greenhouse emissions. When it comes to greenhouse gas emissions, could our cow and hog flatulence nearly equal the output of hot air and other strange emissions from the USA and their White House Fella? Just a thought. Canada is a nation of hardworking people and a lot

of Canadians work long hours or have a second job, but when it comes to being workaholics, Canadians take a back seat to the Japanese. Canada takes another back seat to the Japanese when it comes to being a market for the American seafood industry. That came as big surprise to me. I had always thought that Canada was basically self suf-fish-ent, but I knew Japan was hooked. We Canadians have the second highest usage of chewing gum per capita. Once again, behind the USA. I could only hope that we are low on the list of under the table chewing gum depositors. Of course, there is an American company that will remove chewing gum from bar tables (a dry ice and chisel method) and for that they can stay number one, but you have to wonder if they recycle the end product? Canada has the second highest incidences of Breast Cancer in the world but could that be because of detection? Let’s hope so. We should be number one in detection.

Measles in Sask. a low risk, according to Ministry of Health By Larissa Kurz




A recent outbreak of measles in B.C. has Saskatchewan talking about the relevance of vaccinations once again, despite there being no confirmed cases of the virus within the province since 2014. Dr. Saqib Shahab, Chief Medical Officer at the Ministry of Health, addressed concerns surrounding the measles possibility in Saskatchewan, assuring the public that an outbreak is very unlikely due to the province’s current high rate of immunization among school-aged children paired with the high effectiveness of the MMR vaccine itself. “Measles vaccine is very effective, so two doses are 99% effective. What we’ve seen is that, for the most part, severe measles infection only happens in unvaccinated children. Sometimes vaccination can rarely get a mild illness, but it’s not contagious,” said Shahab. “We hardly ever see full-blown measles in a vaccinated child.” The efficiency of the vaccine remains partially contingent on what Shahab described as “community immunity,” a topic on which the Angus Reid Institute recently polled Canadians for their opinion. According to the poll, 92% of Canadians agree that vaccinations effectively protect the community from illness, and 83% of Canadians would vaccinate their children without reservation. “What we have heard from physicians, public health nurses and pharmacists is the following: less than 1% of people actually refuse immunizations due to personal beliefs,” said Shahab. He also noted that of those few who refuse vaccination, many do so due to underlying conditions such as anaphylactic reactions or immune deficiencies. The larger portion of individuals who question immunization do so because they have questions about the topic — one in five Canadians believe there is a risk of serious side effects, and

one-quarter of Canadians find the science behind vaccinations to be unclear. Dr. Shahab’s advice to those with questions about vaccines is to do research using credible sources and to talk to a professional about the topic. “We have seen people have that discussion with a public health nurse or a public health officer, and 9 times out of 10, they have decided to get vaccinated,” said Shahab. The Angus Reid poll found that the overwhelming majority of respondents agreed that those campaigning against vaccination were irresponsible and were largely supportive of vaccination in children. In fact, 70% of Canadians claim they would be comfortable if vaccines were mandatory for children upon entering school, while 24% say vaccination should be the parent’s choice. This opinion seems to be the feeling prevalent in Saskatchewan, as the Ministry of Health is estimating the MMR vaccination rate of school-age children in the province to be at approximately 90%. Ideally, according to Shahab, that rate would be at 95% or higher, and he recommends parents take community immunity into consideration when deciding on vaccination. “I think it’s really important to understand that when we choose to get our child vaccinated, we obviously protect our children, but we also protect others around them,” said Shahab. “It doesn’t matter if your child is pre-school or is in school, or is a young adult who for some reason didn’t get vaccinated, make that call [to Public Health] to get vaccinated.” Questions about vaccinations can be directed towards local public health professionals, and more information about measles and immunization is available through the HealthLine at 811, or on the Ministry of Health website.

Heartland Hospice to host ‘An Evening of Love, Hope, Faith & Resilience’ fundraising event Sasha-Gay Lobban

Heartland Hospice, Moose Jaw will be hosting an inspirational fundraising event at the Mae Wilson Theatre on Thursday, March 28. The event, “An Evening of Love, Hope, Faith & Resilience” fundraiser will start at 6:30 pm. Heartland Hospice Chairperson Lena Hartman says the fundraiser is aimed at raising funds for a new project the hospice will be undertaking soon. The project will be the creation of a beautiful garden outside of the hospice room to provide serenity for clients and families who use the room. “We’re hoping to raise as much as we can to support our room at Memory Lane, at Pioneer Lodge. For our upcoming project, we’re hoping to do a garden to promote serenity for the people and families that are using the room. This would be built in the outside space next to the hospice.

Bluegrass quartet rambling into town at Mae Wilson Matthew Gourlie

Bluegrass was born in Appalachia shortly after the Second World War. Now, the traditional roots genre is finally having its own cultural moment. Regina’s The Dead South recently passed 100 million views on YouTube for their single “In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company.” They and other artists in the bluegrass genre are seeing their fanbase grow rapidly. Toronto’s Slocan Ramblers have been fixtures on the bluegrass scene for eight years and will be in Moose Jaw at the Mae Wilson Theatre on Thursday, Mar. 7 at 7:30 p.m. “It seems to have kind of taken off in the last five years and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down,” said bassist Alastair Whitehead from the Slocan Ramblers. “It seems to be getting a pretty wide appeal. When we travel, particularly certain places in the States where we go to festivals, it’s all young kids. It definitely seems to be gaining in popularity and there are a lot of bands that are getting mainstream success. I think it is having a bit of a moment.” In addition to Whitehead, the Slocan Ramblers are an acoustic four-piece that also feature Frank Evans (banjo), Adrian Gross (mandolin) and Darryl Poulsen (guitar). Whitehead, who is from Newfoundland, Gross and Poulsen met at Humber College in Toronto where they were studying jazz. Whitehead and Evans worked together at a bike shop when Whitehead discovered Evans played the

At that point in time it was centered around a weekly gig at the Silver Dollar Room with a band called Crazy Strings. It was a late gig, but it was a lot of fun with a really, really great band that played every Wednesday. A lot of us used to go there and we noticed that we were becoming regulars there and got

to talking and that led to jamming. We got a weekly gig and it snowballed from there.” Now, the Slocans tour most of the year – they were in the UK and Ireland for 20 dates in the late fall and will play 28 shows on their Western Canadian tour – and are seeing the changing popularity of bluegrass first-hand. “It depends where you go. Some regions we play, it tends to be an older crowd that have been around the music for a long time,” Whitehead said. “Other places we

go, there has been a whole movement of younger people who seem to have really taken to the music and are super-enthusiastic about it and coming out and discovering it for the first time. It’s cool to see it have this resurgence.” It has been a good year for the Slocan Ramblers. They released Queen City Jubilee in the spring and earned a Juno Award nomination for Traditional Roots Album of the Year for the album. “I don’t know if any of us really expected it. It was a really nice surprise,” Whitehead said. “When you tour so much and make your living playing music there’s a tendency to put your head down and with touring and playing shows there’s a lot to do. It’s nice to reflect on that. It’s a great little nod and a little bit of encouragement.” The band is between albums and working on writing new songs. Whitehead said their sound continues to evolve, but they are still rooted in the traditional sound and style that drew them to bluegrass music in the first place. “Over the years, I think we’ve shifted; we’ve all started to write more of our own music. We’ve gotten a little more comfortable bringing elements of other music that we listen to into our music,” Whitehead said. “A lot of people seem to think the band blends a lot of the old school traditional stuff with some more modern elements, while still staying true to that raw energy of the older recordings.”

Gov’t launching innovation challenge to address changes to trespassing act Matthew Gourlie

The Sask Party is set to announce an innovation challenge to address how hunters and other members of the public can navigate the province’s proposed changes to the trespassing act. The Saskatchewan government has tabled legislation to change the province’s trespassing act, requiring those who wish to hunt or snowmobile on rural property to seek permission from the owner before entering the land. During the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation’s (SWF) 90th annual convention, provincial Minister of the Environment Dustin Duncan announced that Innovation Saskatchewan will be holding an innovation challenge. The goal of that challenge will be to find creative ways for the public to get land owner’s consent to access their land should the changes to the trespassing act pass in the legislature in the spring session. “As a government, we would like to tap into the ingenuity of the Saskatchewan people to come up with a technological way to make it easier, faster and more convenient to get land owners consent,” Duncan said. “The government will, in the coming weeks, pose a question to the Saskatchewan public calling on our province’s entrepreneurs, innovators, students, technology experts and researchers to submit their best technology ideas to tackle this challenge on how to make it easier to get consent.” The winner of the innovation challenge will receive a $10,000 prize and a 16week residency within government, or its partners, to develop a prototype of the technology. Details of the challenge and a deadline for submissions will be announced in the coming weeks. “We’ve done two of these through Inno-

We’ve done this on rural crime in the past. “People have identified a concern of how they’re going to contact or find the contact information for the land owner, to be able to get that consent. We think that there might be an applicable technology solution to help that out.” As the act stands now, consent is presumed to have been given unless a land owner posts a sign on their land explicitly stating that they either do not want anybody accessing their land or that permission is needed to be gained. “We’re just reversing that onus to say that regardless of whether a land owner

posts their land, the hunter -- the person who is wanting to access the land -- it’s their obligation to now go out and ensure they consented with the land owner before they’re on the land,” Duncan said. “Which is really best practice. Even the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation encourages their members to get consent, even if it is unposted land, they should still do the right thing and be a good neighbour and a good hunter and seek the access to the land.” Attending the convention and as a member of the SWF, Saskatchewan New Democratic Party MLA Trent Wotherspoon, said he has hunted and fished his entire life. He feels that the majority of hunters and people that access lands are good stewards and the proposed legislation doesn’t address the real issues.

“The people in this room -- hunters and fishers across the province -- have always worked to maintain relationships and permission wherever possible in this province,” Wotherspoon said. “The changes brought forward by the Sask Party simply doesn’t make sense. “Certainly, it’s very important that a land owner has the right to control access to the land and to be able to post that land, but the current legislation that has been brought forward by the Sask Party would be devastating to this heritage industry in the province. It’s not enforceable and not a fix to the real problems that exist around rural crime and clubroot.” The proposed changes cover three separate acts — The Trespass to Property Act, The Snowmobile Act and The Wildlife Act — and those changes are still a bill before the assembly. The legislation still has to pass before the house. Before it does that, it may have to withstand a legal challenge from the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations who believe the legislation infringes on existing treaty rights. Wotherspoon is hoping to see the changes amended to merely require permission for vehicles to access private land. “There is very reasonable consideration that could be given to ensuring permission for any vehicle to access land,” Wotherspoon said. “That would respond directly to concerns about rural crime and respond directly to clubroot concerns. That would include trucks and cars, but also snowmobiles and ATVs. I think it’s fair that permission be required to take a vehicle on, but I think hunting on foot could be an important amendment to this legislation.”

City Hall Council Notes

Plenty of discussion prior to budget passing

Discussions cover wide variety of items; council also passes pipeline funding request, new garbage truck purchase Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

As Moose Jaw city council worked toward passing the 2019 budget during city council’s most recent meeting, there were plenty of re-votes called for by Coun. Brian Swanson, each touching on an issue that has been contentious over the last few months of council meetings. An area that received plenty of conversation was council remuneration and the elimination of the one-third tax exemption previously given to elected officials through the federal Income Tax Act. Swanson took exception to the cost to the city’s tax base and the appearance that the mayor and councillors didn’t feel they were getting paid enough. Coun. Dawn Luhning agreed to that end, saying she felt uncomfortable voting for what could be seen as a raise for herself and her fellow councillors. The issue came into being when a onethird tax exemption previously applied to elected officials in Canada was eliminated by the federal government. Municipalities all over the country have dealt with the issue since. The motion called for the mayor’s salary to be set at $79,801 and councillor salaries at $24,918. In defending the change, Mayor Fraser Tolmie pointed out that a one-third reduction would mean a major impact in monthly compensation, and that with the city looking to encourage civic service and individuals running for council, such a reduction sends the wrong message. Coun. Heather Eby pointed to the time taken away from work at her business as another reason the 1/3rd should be accounted for: time working on council issues and meetings means lost wages in her case and would be a concern for any self-employed individual. In earlier budget meetings, Coun. Chris Warren moved to have the remuneration replacement funded by a reduction to the

travel and convention budget; that motion was rescinded Feb. 19 and not included in the revote. Coun. Swanson suggested following an earlier consultation report that tied remuneration to compensation for members of the provincial legislature – when they receive a raise, council and mayor receives a raise. The motion passed a second time 4-3, with Couns. Swanson, Warren and Luhning opposed. **** A presentation by Moose Jaw citizen Michel Labonte with regards to the planned Healthy Living program offering city workers free access to city-owned athletic and recreation facilities was met with further discussion as part of a re-vote, with Swanson calling the idea that there would be no cost to the city for such a program ‘baloney’. Swanson echoed Labonte’s comments, saying that the use of water for showers and flushing combined with other incidental costs would all add up over the long run and make such a plan more expensive than realized. Luhning expressed concern for private sector facilities that would take a hit when city workers who had previously been using their gyms decided to instead go with the free option. Warren took the opposite approach, pointing out that such a program is not unusual for other communities and would provide benefits while promoting active living. Eby felt much the same way adding that city employees often feel theirs is a thankless job and offering such a program is a way to show staff appreciation. City manager Jim Puffalt weighed in that the impact of the Healthy Living program would have the added benefit of fewer sick days for employees and make a difference when it comes to productivity.

Moose Jaw city councillor Brian Swanson discusses the 2019 budget during the most recent meeting of city council. The motion passed 5-2, with Swanson and Luhning opposed. **** The original vote to pass the capital budget also drew Swanson’s attention as he felt the massive future-looking budget component carried the wrong focus in too many areas. One major source of concern was the underfunding of the cast-iron watermain replacement program, for which he has long said the numbers don’t bear out as a 20year plan given the replacement distance covered year-to-year. Several councillors were joined by Mayor Tolmie in pointing out that the capital budget deals with the long term from the perspective of the 2019 budget and that changes could be made down the road in future years, enabling work to be accomplished methodically and strategically. As a result, changes could be made with regards to major issues such as the watermain replacement in future budgets. **** Outside of final budget discussions, city council also approved a major change-order to the Buffalo Pound Water Supply Transmission Line Phase 1 replacement project to deal with costs for completing a 127-metre trenchless bore auger crossing of the Spectra Energy and Trans Canada

Now this is where I get a little political. What is a private, for-profit hospital doing in Canada, the land of publicly funded medicare? How come this place is legally allowed to even exist? In some provinces, certain privately funded hospitals were able to stay open after the birth of medicare in the 1960’s, surviving the Private Hospitals Act of 1973 (Ontario) and the passing of the Canada Health Act in 1984, which ensured universality and public administration of health care in Canada. While many may be surprised that such a place is allowed, and others may be appalled by the fact that private services for health care even exists for those willing to pay, the fact remains that privatization of many health services exist within our borders, and it is my opinion that we should be thankful that it exists at all. “For-profit health care� already exists in home care, lab services, pharmacies, nursing homes and diagnostics.

Pipelines. The work was completed on July 18, 2018 but saw a host of difficulties, with contractor Hamm Construction Ltd. pointing to challenging geological conditions – including cobbles, boulders and stiff soil/mudstone – as a major cause for an increase in construction time from three weeks to 11 weeks total. Council approved the additional costs at a total of $380,000, bringing the current total of change orders to $889,045.01, or 4.94 per cent of the total contract value. The new costs fell under the current construction contingency and contract variation, meaning no new funds were required. **** Council approved the purchase of three new garbage trucks at a total cost of $1,179,331.62 A request for proposals saw Superior’s submissions chosen at a cost of $329,074 per Labrie/Peterbilt cab-over truck. **** Two notices of motion for the next meeting of city council were brought forward. Coun. Swanson moved that organizations that have receive municipal project tax status by way of council resolution have that designation removed if in the most recent calendar year the organization has received less that $1,000 in donations via the municipal tax status. Coun. Luhning moved that a report be prepared to reevaluate the issuance of business licences for areas of the city where mixed use in a commercial district and others could be an issue for neighbouring properties. **** Coun. Eby was named deputy mayor for the upcoming two-term span, while Warren was named the executive committee chair and Luhning chair of the personnel committee.

Most of us know of people that have paid privately for an MRI both within and outside our own province. Private surgical hospitals, like the hernia repair facility I attended, are slowing popping up across the country. “When it comes to health care, everyone should be equal under the law!� Lack of timely access to health care is one of the more common complaints Canadians have with our current system. Waiting to see family doctors, waiting in the emergency room, waiting to get a call from a specialist, waiting to see the specialist, and if surgery is required, there is a wait for that too. In my opinion, much of the wait is unacceptable and, in some cases, access can be improved if more privatization was allowed. In my own office, I have had many patients leave the country for medical procedures (knee and hip replacements as well as cancer care). It was estimated that in 2013, 440 million dollars was spent by Canadians for medical procedures outside of the country. That is a lot of money that should have stayed in Canada. It should be noted, and I believe most Canadians may be surprised to hear, that Canada has numerous medical specialists who are unemployed. There are recent reports of nearly 200 unemployed orthopaedic surgical graduates in Canada. This makes no sense when there are wait times of over a year for some orthopedic procedures. While the manpower is there, the public money to pay them is not. The common-sense part of me thinks we should have more private clinics and hospitals providing a place for these surgeons to practice. Keeping well trained surgeons in Canada (many of whom were trained in part with our tax dollars) should be a priority. When it comes to taxing higher earners the masses often yell, “Make them pay! Make them pay!�. When it comes to private health care, maybe we should be yelling, “LET them pay! LET them pay!�

City Hall Council Notes

City Council Approves Budget After a final stretch of debate and discussion, Moose Jaw city council officially passed their 2019 operating, capital and equipment reserve budgets during Monday’s regular meeting. The budget marked the first year for the city’s new priority-based budgeting system, which saw city administration and the various departments put themselves under close scrutiny in order to find the most cost-effective systems and savings possible. The end result is a 3.01 per cent mill rate increase, which will generate an additional $857,500 for the city’s operating and capital budgets. That’s down from the 3.82 per cent tax increase that the preliminary ‘status quo’ budget brought forth in early December. “We’ve had to navigate some very difficult waters and that’s just the reality of where we’re at, that’s not trying to shy away from the job we’re elected to do,” said Moose Jaw Mayor Fraser Tolmie in a passionate defence of the budget just prior to its final passing “I see within this budget that we’re bringing to the community something that is stable and positive, we need a steady hand and we need to know what we’re capable of… this budget is not perfect, but is correcting this ship called the City of Moose Jaw and we’re all part of it. We’re trying to help our local businesses. There are lots of positives, this city is a great city and we have lots of opportunities to capitalize on, and I think this is a good budget.” Coun. Brian Swanson brought forth numerous revotes on capital and operating budget items, ranging from municipal airport financing to council remuneration to the healthy living program for city employees, most of which remained as originally voted on. His final assessment of the operating budget alone saw

Randy Palmer much room for improvement. “This is the third operating budget of this council, there’s one left and I think the template has been set with the ‘status quo plus three per cent, higher taxes and more city hall employees’,” Swanson said. “I feel we’ve failed to address the needs of the community with respect to our budget; we’re disregarding the economic realities of Moose Jaw.” Swanson pointed to the city’s lack of population growth and vacant commercial properties as a sign of how the situation isn’t a positive one. Add in the 58 per cent increase in tax arrears and how 7.7 per cent of tax levies are uncollected and things don’t improve in that regard, he said. “We have significant expenditures in core infrastructure needs and rather than raise taxes, I feel it’s incumbent on us to redirect existing funding,” Swanson said. “I believe our budget disregards the fiscal pattern our city has seen for years and this isn’t changing what city hall is doing. . . I would suggest we have it backwards, instead of city hall serving the community, we have a community that serves city hall.” This rankled Tolmie, who pointed to his own work as mayor as an example of how to try and make things better. “We’re not some big monster sucking the life out of the community,” he said. “You want economic growth and you want to see people in the stores and out shopping? You don’t stand here and say ‘it’s doom and gloom in this community’, you get active.” Tolmie pointed to his discussions with Sask Polytech and recent job losses there as one way to turn a potential negative into a positive. “I’m actively talking to them to find programs so we can attract other students,” Tolmie said. “We have the

highest number of foreign students right here in Moose Jaw. We have new programs that are going to be kind to this community. We need to change the attitude of this city and not look at what we don’t have but what we can go after.” Coun. Heather Eby – who returned to council this fall after a by-election – pointed to her experiences in the past as a councillor and how some of the tough decisions that had to be made at budget time back then had her in a positive frame of mind with regards to council’s decisions for 2019. “Over the years of being here, I’ve had to support tax increases that weren’t easy to be a part of or support, but they were necessary to get things moving and I’ve never apologized for doing so,” Eby said. “But tonight to vote in favour of a 3.01 per cent budget actually feels pretty good. The work that was done to pare down the preliminary budget by nearly a full percentage point wasn’t easy, she said, and even involved herself and Coun. Chris Warren reviewing individual line items in addition to city administration bringing forth a report that proposed an eight per cent reduction and exceptionally severe cuts in many areas. “We didn’t feel it was good, we were able to at least have a look at those things and we appreciated city administration for putting that together and giving us options,” Eby said. “There were a lot of people who put a lot of effort into making this the best budget possible, and while nobody likes to see a tax increase, I think this is going to make things run more efficiently and I really look forward to next year when we can look back and see the positive things that came out of this.” Be sure to check and the Moose Jaw Express for more on the budget in the near future!

Report from the Legislature

Lyle Stewart MLA Lumsden-Morse Your Saskatchewan Party government starts the Lyle Stewart spring sitting MLA, of the legisLumsden-Morse lature with a commitment to stand up for Saskatchewan and move forward with plans to build a stronger economy, all while managing spending and keeping taxes low. Standing up for Saskatchewan means protecting the people and jobs that keep our province moving forward. This means a focus on the three Ts – trade, transport and taxes. The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) is a step in the right direction, but we need to keep working with our American counterparts and be mindful of the deep integration of our economies. From steel to manufacturing, to agriculture, we should keep working to improve the flow of goods back and forth across our borders and maximize our competitiveness. Growing and improving the Canada-U.S. relationship by reducing trade barriers was the focus of a recent trip to Washington. Premier Moe joined New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs and Ontario Premier Doug Ford as part of a Canadian delegation to build relationships and engage with U.S. governors on the importance of trade with our largest trading partner. We value the relationship we have with the United States, and it is one we must continue to improve. Importantly, we need the ability to trans-

port our products to port. The recent ruling by the National Energy Board on Trans Mountain confirms what we already know about the project: it’s in our national interest, and it needs to be built. Now we need the federal government to keep moving ahead to ensure it gets done. This reinforces the need for Canada to have a regulatory framework that gives private investors enough certainty to proceed with projects that are beneficial to our economy and create wealth for everyone in Canada. Bill C-69 most certainly is not that framework, and will only see the current trend of global energy sector investment leaving Canada accelerate. We also need a fair tax and regulatory environment so we are competitive with other people who are producing products around the world. Saskatchewan and its supporters recently put forward strong and compelling arguments in court, supporting the position that the Trudeau carbon tax is fundamentally unconstitutional. The Trudeau carbon tax is just that, a tax – not a regulatory charge – and it violates the principles of federalism which underwrite our great country. This spring, your Saskatchewan Party government will continue to stand up for Saskatchewan while delivering on our 3-year plan to balance budget while maintaining a competitive tax & business environment, and focusing on important government programs and services for the long-term. I look forward to the spring sitting and the opportunity to keep standing up for Saskatchewan’s interests in the Legislative Assembly.

RCMP program informs students about risks of underage cannabis use Matthew Gourlie

The legalization of cannabis has changed the conversation, though not necessarily the consequences, for young people in Canada. Mylaine Gauvreau and Ashton Bennett from the RCMP National Youth Service made presentations at three area schools recently about the affects of cannabis use on young people and the legal consequences for minors. “With the new legislation coming out and wanting young people to know the risks, both legally and then health-wise, we felt this would be a good presentation,” said Sgt. Tim Schwartz, Moose Jaw RCMP Detachment Commander. “It is presented by younger adults. They’re not police officers; they’re public servants. Sometimes the messages that come across from police are like getting the same message from your parents.” Presentations were made to the younger grades at Peacock and to all years at Vanier. Gauvreau and Bennett also spoke to Caronport High School students, with Grades 7 and 8 also sitting in. All told, approximately 600 students attended presentations. “I think some of the kids were somewhat surprised by some of the affects and may-

(submitted photograph) be the legality part,” Schwartz said. “The biggest message we want to get across is when it comes to your health you can make a choice. Using drugs — that being marijuana or alcohol — are both illegal under the age of 19 and we’re just asking them to make the right decisions. “I think it was fairly well-received.” While the RCMP National Youth Services members discussed issues related to health and legality, they also emphasized the

dangers of driving under the influence of marijuana in addition to alcohol and other drugs. “I’m glad we’re talking about this in a non-taboo kind of way,” said Vanier principal Brad Moser. “This is their reality now and it’s good to talk to them now about the fact that this is their reality when they turn 19. They need to understand that driving impaired under cannabis is the same as drinking and driving. It affects

you the same way and driving impaired is still driving impaired.” While cannabis has been decriminalized there are serious punishments for possession for minors. “I don’t know if the students understand all of the legal consequences in Saskatchewan,” Moser said. “If you get caught with cannabis on school property the fine is more than $1,000. And I think if you’re underage that’s another fine and that’s another $300 I think. There are huge consequences that students need to understand.” RCMP National Youth Services has a variety of outreach and engagement programs and Schwartz said he tries to make those resources available to school districts as much as possible. “Any youth that can be educated within the city of Moose Jaw or within the RCMP jurisdiction, I think it’s important,” Schwartz said. “We always make it available to principals at the beginning of the school year. We make it clear to administrators that we do have presentations along the lines of addictions, bullying and things as basic as meeting with kids in Kindergarten or Grade 1 about Halloween safety. We try to get into the schools as much as we can.” 19031DS2

Regina symphony debuting orchestral work Riel: Heart of the North by Larissa Kurz

On Mar. 9, the Regina Symphony Orchestra will premiere an original dramatic musical based on Louis Riel’s life and his love for his homeland, the heart of the north, and his quest to establish this area as a homeland for the Métis people. Riel: Heart of the North is part of the Regina Symphony Orchestra Masterworks series and is an orchestral and vocal work composed by Neil Weisensel, with vocals written by librettist and Métis poet Dr. Suzanne Steele. The show has been a sizable undertaking for the organization, but music director Gordon Gerrard is confident that it has come together. “It is a big spectacle, as I said, the forces are quite large: full orchestra, a large choir, five soloists, a fiddler, a narrator,” said Gerrard. “It’s a big work, lots of moving parts, and it’s a very celebratory look at the work and the life of Louis Riel, a figure that I think we’re still sort of trying to unpack his place in the development of what we now know as this place, Saskatchewan.” Steele and Weisensel began consulting Métis communities on the project nearly two years ago, and Weisensel spent many months researching Métis fiddlers and fiddle tunes to inform his composition.

“[Steele and Weisensel] did a lot of that work before they even started writing anything, and that was a big part of the project,” said Gerrard. “So it’s a big milestone for [Regina Symphony Orchestra] as an organization, and also I think a big milestone in our season, and we’re excited that it’s almost here.” Riel: Heart of the North incorporates the Métis people’s past, present and future and displays it through a framework of reconciliation and truth. The work will be presented in English, French and Michif, an inclusive homage to prairie history, and will be performed by some Métis and First Nations talent. Melody Courage, soprano, is an artist passionate about her Métis heritage, much like Métis-Canadian Rebecca Cuddy, mezzo-soprano. Marion Newman — who identifies herself as partially Kwagiulth and Stó:lo First Nations — will be joining Courage and Cuddy as a mezzo-soprano, as well as James McLennan, tenor, and James Westman, baritone. Playing alongside the soloists will be Jordan Daniels, a Saskatchewan fiddle prodigy from the Mistawasis First Nation, as Heart of the North features a traditional Métis fiddle tune that is at times the prominent voice in the orchestra, and at other times a foundation upon which the music is built. Heart of the North will be performed alongside Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, a choice Gerrard describes as

interesting due to the nature of the two works. “The reason that these two pieces go together is that Beethoven’s symphony is all about the land, and nature, and our place in it, and it felt like this question of examining what homeland means for all of us, even in 2019,” said Gerrard. The idea of feeling at home is an important concept in the work and ties into the reason Heart of the North is being debuted in Regina, in Treaty 4 Territory. “I think that, obviously, this part of Canada has a lot of direct ties to Louis Riel and the Métis people and that part of our history, which I think few of us really understand in great detail,” said Gerrard. “So it seemed to me that if anyone was going to help tell the story and bring it to the stage, it should be us, in this part of the country.” “I thought this was a great fit for us, to help examine our community, and our history and our shared past, and how we got here,” said Gerrard. “It seems that these are the questions that we need to continue to ask, especially as we try and sort out what our own individual roles are in this notion of reconciliation.” More information about the event can be found at the Regina Symphony Orchestra’s website. Tickets can be purchased online at, by calling the Box Office at 586-9555 during the week, or at the door one hour prior to the concert.

Langan hits 100 points as Warriors cap off week with win over Prince Albert Three-point night makes Tribe overage fourth Tribe player in last four years to break century mark Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

There was a time where a Moose Jaw Warrior scoring 100 points in a season was a rarity. Now it’s just another day, usually in early March. Warriors forward Tristin Langan was the most recent member of the Tribe to crack the century mark as he scored a pair of third period goals – his 46th and 47th of the season – as the Warriors took a 4-2 victory over the Prince Albert Raiders on Saturday night at Mosaic Place. In contests from earlier in the week, the Warriors lost 7-3 to the Red Deer Rebels on Feb. 26 and 5-0 to the Lethbridge Hurricanes on Mar. 1 Langan now has 47 goals and 100 points as his wildly impressive overage campaign continues. “It’s definitely special, especially to do it at home in front of our fans,” Langan said shortly before joining his teammates signing jerseys as part of Snowbirds Night. “I definitely couldn’t have done it without my teammates and especially my linemates, that’s a special couple of guys on my wing and I couldn’t have done it without them.” Those linemates – Justin Almeida and Brayden Tracey -- have had incredible seasons of their own. Almeida is next on the 100-point watch as after his goal and three assists Saturday he now has 26 goals and 93 points. Tracey, the reigning Western Hockey League player of the month, has 32 goals and 75 points to lead all WHL rookies. The trio are the top scoring line in the Canadian Hockey League. Langan had shown signs of brilliance in past campaigns, specifically just before Christmas last season when he went on a scoring tear while playing on the top line. As it turns out, that was just a sign of things to come. “It’s just about working hard both on the ice and in the off season and not getting down on yourself,” Langan said. “I was down on the third line and fourth line a couple years back, but you just have to stay positive and keep working… I’m glad they gave me a chance to stick around as a 20-year-old and that I was able to have the kind of season I’ve had.”

Moose Jaw’s Kaeden Taphorn gets off a pass against a Raiders defender. Langan joins an elite group of recent Warriors centurions – Jayden Halbgewachs (70-59-129) and Brayden Burke (32-81-113) hit the mark last season, Halbgewachs (50-51-101) in 2016-17 and Dryden Hunt (5858-116) in 2015-16. Langan’s output had an impact on the game as well – his two goals in the final period were key to the Warriors’ win over the WHL-leading Raiders. “Against Red Deer and Lethbridge we didn’t play as well as was wanted and we knew P.A. was going to come in and play hard so it was great to respond and come out with the win,” Langan said. Almeida scored the Warriors’ first goal in the first period, Tracey scored their final marker with 6:24 left in the game. Dante Hannoun and Justin Nachbaur scored for Prince Albert.

Brodan Salmond had an outstanding game in goal, turning aside 27 shots, many from in close and of the exceptional variety. Ian Scott got the start for the Raiders and made 25 saves before giving way to Boston Bilous for the final six minutes of the game. Against Red Deer, Jett Woo, Luke Ormsby and Carson Denomie had the Warriors’ goals while Adam Evanoff made 26 saves in goal. Brodan Salmond made 15 saves and Adam Evanoff 10 in the loss to Lethbridge. The Warriors improved to 35-18-6-2 with the win over P.A. and remain in third place in the East Division, 10 points back of Saskatoon and 12 up on Brandon with seven games remaining in the regular season. The Warriors were back in action Tuesday when they hosted the Saskatoon Blades, with scores from that contest unavailable as of press time. On tap for the Tribe is a home-and-home set with the Regina Pats this weekend, with the Warriors in Regina Friday and hosting the Pats Saturday (7 p.m., Mosaic Place).

Wareham handing over Midget AAA reigns

Longtime Generals coach stepping aside after local squad closes out campaign with win Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Generals will see a few changes behind the bench next season. The local Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League squad closed out their campaign in impressive fashion with an 8-3 win over the Beardy’s Blackhawks recently, but that was almost secondary to word filtering out that longtime head coach Ray Wareham would be handing off the coaching reigns for the 2019-2020 campaign. If everything goes according to plan, there won’t be any wholesale changes – Wareham is hoping to promote from within, with an announcement ideally coming later this month once things have been cleared with Moose Jaw Minor Hockey. “I’m stepping back from the coaching side of it, I’ll still be a part of the managerial side of it,” said Wareham, who has spent the last 17 winters behind the Generals’ bench. “It’s been long enough; it’s time for a new voice and I have some other things in the works. So we’ll see what happens, but I’m sure whoever takes over will do a great job.” The revelation came on the heels of one

The win, combined with their performance throughout the final weeks of the season as they put together a lastditch playoff push, had the local squad wondering what could have been, espe-

cially if not for a 13-game losing streak that lasted throughout the month of November. “That was the story of our year, the consistency,” said Wareham. “I think after Christmas, I thought we played some pretty good hockey. We were around 9-6,

and even the start of the year we were playing pretty good hockey, it was the middle portion when we went on that slide and couldn’t find our way out of it. We had some chances to win hockey games that we found a way to lose, it was tough sledding there for a little bit. “But to the guys’ credit, they went home and refreshed themselves at the Christmas break and gave themselves a chance in the second half.” While Moose Jaw’s final record of 17-242-1 was far from what they had hoped for and expected, there was a major positive: Wareham saw a ton of improvement from his players, to a man. And as a developmental league, that’s what it’s all about. “It was frustrating to have a losing season, but every one of our guys is leaving here a better player than when they came and we’re proud of that,” Wareham said. “Don’t get me wrong, I like to win, but we want to get them to where they want to get and that’s playing junior. So we’re happy with the progress of the guys as individual, it just didn’t come together as a group and that’s a little disappointing.”

Big crowd and big names attend local arm-wrestling event Matthew Gourlie

When Kayne Hemsing envisioned the Fit II Fight Armsports League, he wanted to bring the best arm wrestlers in Western Canada together. The league began with The Duke Invitational in 2018 and the second version of the Duke on Feb. 2 saw some big names and strong competition competing at Bugsy’s as the event drew a strong field from across the prairie provinces. “With a lot of tournaments, you don’t see that kind of travelling, but now the league is into our second year and we’ve built a good name,” said Kayne Hemsing from the Fit II Fight Armsports League. “We’ve got some good sponsors behind us. It’s very well run. We use first-class refs and we have first-class awards. We probably had more than $3,000 in payouts from our super matches and our Fit II Fight belt matches. “That’s what we’re trying to promote, a professional arm wrestling league, where some of the best in Western Canada can come and compete against each other.” The event drew close to 60 total entries in all of the classes and featured three super matches. The headline super match featured threetime world champion Ryan Espey from Portage la Prairie, Man. and Jeff “Popeye” Dabe from Minnesota who has 19inch forearms and entered the Guinness Book of World Records as having the biggest ring size for his massive hands. “Ryan took this match very seriously. They both prepared. They had both wanted to pull each other for a long

time,” Hemsing said. “Jeff being a big dude with some of the biggest arms and hands in the world and Ryan being in the top three in the world in the left and weighing in around 360 pounds. He wants to be No. 1 in the world again. He’s been there twice before. “He came in well-prepared and didn’t take Jeff lightly.” Espey won the left-hand main event with three straight victories. He had won two world titles in 2002 and 2003 and then won the title in the Masters category in 2018. Hemsing said Espey is “on a mission” and he was ecstatic to beat Dabe in the main event. “He hit him hard. He took his hand away from him. He grabbed him down low and used straight power and a straight hook and didn’t let Jeff use his big hand and top roll him,” Hemsing said. The two huge men were the main attraction and Hemsing said it was great to bring them in for the event. “They were both really great ambassadors to have in Moose Jaw for this tournament,” he said. “Any time you can get people who are in the top-10 in the world to come to our little city and compete, it’s great. We had 10 or 20 people who came in from all over just to see that match. They weren’t even competing, they just wanted to see the match and meet those guys and get their picture taken.” Hemsing won his best-of-five left arm

co-main event super match 3-1 over Sean McCallum of Grande Prairie, Alta. “He’s been bugging to pull me in a super match for years,” Hemsing said. “He beat me in the first match, so I pulled up my big boy pants and won the next three. I had to out-think him and outsmart and use a little old school technique and I was able to beat him 3-1.” The first super match lived up to its expectations as Moose Jaw’s Brandon Olafson met Stan Scott from Winnipeg. They had met twice before and each had one once in their right-arm clash. “This was a grudge match,” Hemsing said. Olfason won the first two matches, but Scott came back to win the next two of the best-of-five. “Brandon was able to pull it out for the big win and you could not hear. It was so loud in there,” Hemsing said. “Their matches were two minutes long. They’re such equal pullers. You won’t find two guys who are so equal. They were just grudge matches, back-and-forth. “That was a great co-main event. We knew it would be and it got the place rocking.” After three events in 2018, the Duke was the fourth event that the Fit II Fight league has put on. Hemsing was pleased to see between 10-12 competitors in each class. “I’ve been arm wrestling 18 years now and I always had this idea that we want-

ed a professional arm wrestling league in Western Canada,” Hemsing said. “There’s so many good pullers in Saskatchewan and across Western Canada, but we have nowhere to go.” Hemsing said there will be a third annual The Duke Invitational in 2020 and there is a lot of interest in hosting their next league stop. The event also raised $1,500 for the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation to cap a great night. “Everybody won a little bit of money. Everybody had an incredible time. Everybody got to pull people that they had never pulled before. A lot of people made new friends and at the end of the day we got to help sick children,” Hemsing said. “And you got to do something that you love.

Fit II Fight donates $1,500 to Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation Matthew Gourlie

In only its second year, The Duke’s Invitational was a resounding success. The fourth event in the Fit II Fight Armsports League held an arm-wrestling event at Bugsy’s early in February and raised $1,500 for the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation. “For a small little tournament with a bunch of guys coming together to arm wrestle, we’re pretty happy with that,” said Kayne Hemsing from the Fit II Fight Armsports League. “We raised some money through the 50-50s and some raffles that we had donated. We even had a couple of guys donate their winnings back.” Garett Teriann, owner of Rockport Carrier Co. Ltd, and title sponsor of the Fit II Fight Armsport League, along with Hemsing were pleased that they were able to do something that would benefit sick children in the province. Hemsing was ice fishing with Teriann when they decided to partner to create the league. Rockport

Carrier came on as the title sponsor and helped pay for the championship belts for the kickoff of The Duke Invitational in Moose Jaw a year ago. “If it wasn’t for Garett coming on board with me, we wouldn’t be able to do nice stuff like this,” Hemsing said. The Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital location is on the University of Saskatchewan campus and will facilitate the 176-bed facility to provide specialized care to Saskatchewan children, so they don’t have to leave the province for treatment. “This donation is fantastic,” said Stacie Lawson, manager, development & engagement for the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation. “It’s the first time that we’ve been associated with something like this and it’s opening year, so it’s a great time to be involved.” Lawson reports that the Children’s Hospital is 87 per cent complete with a target date of doors opening in October or November.

Kinsmen Speed Skaters represent Moose Jaw at provincial and world events Submitted by John Morris

The Kinsmen Speed Skating Club sent skaters near and far this past month representing Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan and Canadian teams. At a recent meet in Melville, Jesse Cline finished 5th while Tye Nicolson and Kharma Cletheroe took sixth place in their respective divisions while getting a number of personal best times. Seth Allen won a bronze while Avery Seman took a silver. Seman said’, “I’ve always liked the Melville meet. It was a great to race one more short track before the end of the year and getting a silver medal is a fantastic way to end the season.” Moose Jaw speed skater Morgan Capili recently joined Team Saskatchewan at the Canadian Age Class Long Track Competition in Winnipeg. In her first national competition, Capili finished 16th. Capili said, “It was my first Canadian meet and my goal was to get personal bests and to

gain experience. I was really proud of all my races, especially the 300m because I got a second personal best.” February also saw another national competition with the Canada Winter Games being held in Red Deer, Alberta. The Moose Jaw club sent skaters Kali Ann Friesen and Marc André Doyon to the long track competition. Doyon finished 11th in the mass start race and 12th in the 500 m and will be joining the Olympic oval training program next year. Doyon said, “The CWG gave me a high level of competition…showed me how to stay focused and dedicated while still enjoying my time at Red Deer. My highlight was our team pursuit race. We worked like an amazing team together and ended up performing better because of how we worked as a team. This showed me that working as a team will get you somewhere faster and better than any other way.” Doyon’s Saskatchewan pursuit team put on a great performance just missing the podium with a 4th place finish. Two other local skaters were off to world competitions this past month. Graeme Fish who is now on the men’s national team posted a personal best ever World Cup finish with a 7th place showing in Inzell, Germany with a time of 13:07 in the 10,000 m. Gabrielle Sanson a junior aged local skater who trains at the Olympic Oval in Calgary made Team Canada for the recent World Junior Long Track Championships held in Basegla de Piné, Italy.

Wright set to return to world championship Gold the only goal for Moose Jaw wheelchair curling standout

When it comes to wheelchair curling, Moose Jaw’s Marie Wright has pretty much done it all. But there’s one thing that’s eluded her and her teammates on the international stage -- a gold medal. Wright and Team Canada have been close, finishing fifth at Worlds in 2017 and winning bronze at the 2018 Paralympic Games, but claiming the ultimate prize has proven difficult. So when Wright and teammates Mark Ideson, Collinda Joseph and Jon Thurston took the ice for their first games in Stirling, Scotland on Mar. 3, the goal was as straightforward as possible. Winning, winning and more winning, culminating in a gold medal. “That’s what we’re going for, it’s been long enough and it’s time,” Wright said Monday on the eve of leaving for the championship. “We’ve had a lot of practice and preparation and we’re ready to go, so hopefully things turn out as well as we hope.” Wright was named to Team Canada in January after a long try-out process throughout the fall and into the new year. The time since then has been spent practicing

The results from those games were plenty positive, as Canada went 2-2 against the U.S. during an exhibition series in Winnipeg, despite going through a feeling-out process with two new members of the team in Thurston and Joseph. Against their Canadian compatriots, Team Canada posted a winning record in a series of games at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre. “It’s been really good and I think we’ve really gelled as a team and we’re really prepared,” Wright said. As one of the most experienced members of the rink, it might seem strange that Wright would be playing lead – but in wheelchair curling, that position is even Moose Jaw’s Marie Wright - off to the more important than in the able-bodied game, especially with the newly imple- World Wheelchair Curling Championship in Scotland. mented five-rock rule. “It’s so important to have the ends set up face with his shots.” well that having someone with experience Canada opened the 12-team tournament starting off the end can make a big differwith a 7-6 loss to Latvia on Mar. 3 beence,” Wright said. “You really don’t want fore facing Korea and Norway on Mar. 4. to be leaving your skip a lot of rocks to

The second game Monday was a contest Wright was looking forward to for somewhat different reasons. “I’m bringing some moose figures along to give to them and they’re going to have ‘Mac’ written on them,” she said with a laugh, referring to the ongoing war between Moose Jaw and Norway over the largest moose statues. Assuming a battle didn’t break out, they continued their tournament Mar. 5 against Switzerland and China, Mar. 6 against Slovakia and Russia, Mar. 7 against Germany and the U.S. before closing out the round robin against Estonia and Scotland on Mar. 8. The top six teams advance to the playoffs on Mar. 9, with the medal games on Mar. 10. Wright is once again being accompanied by family members to the event, with the added bonus of her family origins being from Scotland. To that end, she plans to do plenty of sightseeing, including a visit to an ancient castle. “It’s going to be a lot of fun and hopefully we’ll have a gold medal to bring home, too.”

Eberl, Derenisky win silver medal at Canada Winter Games Ackerman just misses playoffs in women’s curling, Handley ninth in figure skating Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The second half of the Canada Winter Games proved to be podium-worthy for Moose Jaw’s Raine Eberl and Novice pairs figure skating partner Caidence Derenisky of Regina. The Team Saskatchewan duo went into the freeskate program on Feb. 28 in third place, just over a point behind the Ontario duo of Owen Brawly and Mackenzie Ripley after the short program on Feb. 26. Eberl and Derenisky would respond and then some, though, skating a 66.87 to not only surpass Brawley and Ripley but nearly take first place in the program -- the gold medal winning team of Quebec’s Gabriel Farand and Jamie Fournier wereless than a point ahead at 67.37. Quebec finished with a combined total of 110.25, Eberl and Derenisky second at 103.58 and Brawley and Ripley at 100.56. **** Moose Jaw’s Ryann Handley skated a score of 51.35 in her free program on Thursday to finish in ninth place

Mavericks win first round series Randy Palmer The Moose Jaw Mavericks closed out their Saskatchewan Female Hockey League Pee Wee division first round playoff series in style on Tuesday night, as they rolled to a 9-3 win over the Swift Current Ice Cats. Brooklyn Nimegeers turned in another dominant game, scoring four times and finishing with seven points as Moose Jaw led 3-1 after the first and 6-3 through two. Dakota Tonge had a pair of goals while Jesse Mielke and Brinnagh McKean scored once and added an assist each. Schay Camphaug went the distance in goal to earn the win. The Mavericks (14-5-2 regular season) now await the winner of the Southwest Cyclones (20-0-1) and Swift Current Fire Cats (7-14-0) in their South Division semifinal series.

Skating in the Novice ladies division, Handley recorded a 31.75 in her short program on Tuesday, giving her an 83.10 total. Alberta’s Kaiya Ruiter skated a 125.91 total to claim gold. **** Moose Jaw’s Skylar Ackerman and her Team Saskatchewan foursome saw their quest for a Canada Games curling medal fall short on Mar. 1 as they dropped a 6-3 decision to Nova Scotia in the quarter-final. Ackerman and her rink of third Madison Johnson, second Chantel Hoag and lead Samantha McLaren had earlier in the day defeated Manitoba’s Hayley Bergman 6-5 to finish the round robin with a 6-4 record, good enough for a tie for fifth place. That contest saw Ackerman build a 5-1 lead through five ends, only to see Manitoba claw their way back into the game with two in the sixth and a steal of two in the seven to tie things 5-5 coming home. Team Sask was up to the task, though, using the hammer to pick up a pair in the final end. The quarter-final against Nova Scotia’s Cassidy Currie didn’t go quite as well in the late going. Ackerman scored three in the fifth end to go into the break tied 3-3 but would be unable to build on that momentum, as Currie picked up one in the sixth and followed with a crucial steal of two the next end. Ackerman got one back in the eight but would fall short in her comeback.

Future of farming includes growing record data base By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express



Years ago when Saskatchewan Agriculture promoted diversity in crops, some area farmers

tried the program. One of them grew organic herbs. Organic farming takes a lot of management – detailed records of crop seeding, tillage, harvest transport and storage. Wanting to learn more, the herb grower took in some farming conferences and returned somewhat dejected. Considering the amount of record keeping speakers predicted in future for all types of agriculture, he wasn’t sure he wanted to stay in the business. A recent Canadian Taxpayers Federation survey showing 69 per cent of farmers wonder if the red tape makes it worthwhile encouraging children to take over the family farm indicates the herb farmer was right. The farm industry is about one generation away from the days when many found a shoe box full of bills, receipts and cancelled cheques was all the records needed for income tax or anything. How that has changed! The first major records need came when the GRIP farm safety net came into play. Farmers needed production data and acreage data.

Over the years, record-keeping became more important for safety net programs, crop insurance, banking, chemical use with GPS. It’s safe to say, today’s farmer has multiplied records and their management many times more than the last generation of farmers. More recently, cattle producers need to ear tag and record all animals, in what was once a voluntary program. In the last year, cattle producers need prescriptions for cattle medicine. Wait until they need to keep detailed records of use. The Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) offers farmers excellent grants to encourage certain best practices and profit increases. Under the invasive plant control and targeted grazing, CAP offers 50 per cent of costs up to $45,000 each year. The permanent forage programs offer up to $10,000 funds.

The livestock stewardship program offers up to $100,000 to relocate livestock facilities away from water drainage or water sources, just to name a few. All these programs have one feature in common — keeping good records. Many have an audit requirement every five years. The point is that keeping records (read red tape) will continue to grow in the agriculture industry. No one is trying to make farming any more difficult by demanding records. The demand by countries buying our food products and their consumers for safe food drives these programs. If consumers aren’t satisfied about food safety, Canadian farmers will lose markets, period. Just as vehicle owners expect the manufacturer to contact all owners at once about a recall, food retailers and consumers expect the same detailed process with the food they eat. Increasing rules and red tape are a hallmark of the future for agriculture and all business. Lucky for farmers, smart phones and computers use make the development of records so much less difficult.

Monkey Bars playcentre opens doors in Town ’n’ Country Mall New business offers massive play structure and host of other activities for local youngsters Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The line-up at the door just before their grand opening showed just how much potential a playcentre like Monkey Bars might have in Moose Jaw. More than a dozen people waited to get inside the children’s play centre in the Town ’n’ Country Mall and the up to about 50 youngsters and their parents milled around the giant play structure and ball pit within an hour of opening, This was particularly heartening for Monkey Bars owner and developer Joey Ferguson. “We’re a little overwhelmed, and I guess that’s a good problem to have,� Ferguson said with a laugh in between fielding enquiries about birthday parties and other special events. “We’re learning our processes and it’s a learning experience for staff; we have to train them and get them used to things without people coming through the door, so now that we have people here, there’s a lot going on. “We’ll try and make sure everyone is playing safe and having a good time and hopefully it stays just as busy as it is and the kids have a great time and great experience.� Monkey Bars is located in the south end of the mall, across from the food court and next door to Galaxy Cinemas. As a new tenant for Town ’n’ Country, mall manager Jennilee Novak hopes the playcentre will draw plenty of folks to the once-busy hub of local shopping.

Leave it to a place with ‘monkey’ in its name to turn into a bit of a zoo, but things were plenty busy on opening day for Monkey Bars.

“We’re really excited to have it in the mall. This mall has been quiet for ages so something like this not only for the mall but for the community is a great addition,â€? Novak said. “So, we’re really, really excited to be here and we’re hoping everyone enjoys themselves.â€? Ferguson came up with the idea for Monkey Bars while living in Calgary, where facilities of its type are common and much appreciated. The project has been four years in the making, with the last two years focussed on the actual infrastructure and building. “As a young parent, I really banked on these types of facilities for children, like if there was a tough day and you really needed a break as a parent‌ It’s about having some time for kids to have fun and parents to sit back and watch and maybe have a coffee MOOSE JAW

and let the kids have a great time,â€? Ferguson said. “So I think it’s a really good concept and a really great product. I’m from Moose Jaw, born and raised, so I just wanted to bring that back here and see the community have that kind of experience, because I think it’s important to give our kids a chance to play.â€? The playcentre also features an extensive cafĂŠ with healthy snack choices, as well as a birthday room and other amenities designed to make every visit as positive as possible. Hours for Monkey Bars vary throughout the week, with fees ranging from $6.95 to $9.95 per child to go along with a host of promotions and bundles.
