New Canadians celebrate journeys at citizenship ceremony Matthew Gourlie

47 individuals from nine countries now living across southern Saskatchewan were sworn in as Canadian citizens at a Citizenship Ceremony co-hosted by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada and the Institute for Canadian Citizenship on March 19th. Everyone’s story is unique in their journey to Canada, but their overall message is the same – their gratefulness for the great country of Canada and the ability to now become a Canadian citizen. Adapting to a new country and often a new language and climate is difficult. That was true for 19-year-old Alexia Gardoque, but she was just happy to be able to see her mother every day. That hadn’t been the case as her mother left the Philippines not long after she was born. “The first seven years of my life she was overseas. First, she was in Hong Kong for two years and then she was finally able to move here to Canada and she lived in Carrot River,” said Gardoque who took the oath of citizenship with her brother, father and mother. “It was hard, especially for me growing up. When I was in the Philippines, I was waiting for her every year to come and attend my year-end school events. It was really nice to finally be reunited.”

He said he moved to Canada because there was more opportunity for him and his family. “I had a decent job there, but it was not enough to provide for them,” said Vasallo who said his family encouraged him to emigrate. Vasallo said the spirit of volunteerism in Canada and everyone taking care of each other really struck him. He was beaming during the ceremony but said the journey hasn’t always been easy. “It was a big change. It’s a culture shock,

actually,” Vasallo said. “When I first came, I was excited. When I arrived in Regina at the airport, it was actually November. It’s really cold that month. We went to Swift and my employer was the one driving and we encountered a blizzard already. So, yeah that was a bit of a shock.” Moose Jaw Mayor Fraser Tolmie told his own immigration story of his grandparents leaving Glasgow during the Second World War and seeking a better life. “I want to welcome you to our country, to our province and to our city because today the city is better because of who you are and because of what you have done today,” Tolmie said. The ceremony opened with Aaron Tootoosis from the Guns of Poundmaker drum group singing a song written by Chief Piapot on the occasion of the signing of Treaty 4 in 1874. Ha’Keen Maneso, a Grade 11 student from Vanier whose mother is a fourth-generation Saskatchewan resident and whose father is an Ethiopian immigrant, sang O Canada in both official languages. “The future of Canada — our freedom, our democracy, our peaceful society, equality under the law, prosperity — the future of all of these things now depends on you,” said citizenship officer Akuokor Ninepence addressing the new Canadians.

“Do you rent a house or apartment?

If so, your landlord may have insurance on the building, but you should also have Tenant Insurance to protect your personal property and liability. If there’s a fire and everything you own is lost, could you afford to replace those things? And if you cause a fire by leaving a pot on the stove, you could have a lot more to lose. You can be legally liable for damage caused to your suite, the building and other people’s property. Call or stop in to find out how to protect yourself.”

Open Letter About Carbon Tax

Lucid “Lu” Knight Howdy Mister Trudeau, I walk and coffee in Moose Jaw with old friends – and I mean OLD. Some told me that even though Saskatchewan ain’t gonna have a Carbon Tax the Saskatchewan Government is going to collect one anyway and then hold the money for all of us. That’s pretty good of them. My Mom did that for me when I worked harvest for the neighbour. My experiences with governments is they ain’t like my Mom. They don’t give your money back. I don’t like the Carbon Tax. I don’t farm no more so that ain’t a problem. I’m not against saving the planet. I am for

tax equality for all Canadians. The Carbon Tax ain’t an equal tax. Some of us have to pay more. Since I moved into town I heat the house with natural gas. Natural Gas is lots better than the old wood stove or the old oil heater. That oil heater – Whew – it made everyone smell like they’d been driving a diesel tractor all day. Not sure Mr. Trudeau if you know what that smell is because you’re a city guy. Maybe Ralph does – but then, I’m not sure. He’s city too. Here’s the equal or equality part I’m talking about. I hate taxes but peoples should pay the same rate. Like the Mulroney GST – another brilliant idea from a Quebec politician – everyone pays the same GST rate. You could live in Corner Brook or Comox. The GST rate is the same. Same with Federal Income Tax. Everyone pays the same rate based on their income. This ain’t the case with the Carbon Tax. I gotta pay it on the Natural Gas I use to heat the house. Now the rate is the same for everyone but I live in Saskatchewan. Winter here is really cold. I use a lot of natural gas just to keep me, the cat and the Misses from freezing to the floor. You grew up on the West Coast. Them folks don’t use

nearly as much natural gas for heating as us in Saskatchewan. So they will pay less in accumulated carbon taxes on their heating bill. That ain’t fair or equal or equitable. Think about Robin Hood and King John. Old King John wanted people in one part of Sherwood Forest to pay more taxes than folks in another part of the forest. I don’t know why – maybe they had better turnips. The thing is, his taxes weren’t fair and people got upset. In comes the Sherriff and Robin Hood – well, you gets the picture. King John had to sign a sheet of paper saying everyone would be treated equal. So in the winter, me, my seniors’ friends at YARA and even Ralph Goodale over near Regina, all gotta pay higher taxes in our part of the forest – Saskatchewan, than them people in Comox. Paul Romer’s idea of a carbon tax is stupid. Pollution is terrible. True! Look at Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver – all them big cities – because of vehicle exhaust. Deal with that and let me stay warm through another Saskatchewan winter at a fair and equitable rate. Lucid ‘Lu’ Knight, Fern Valley, via the Mossbank Post Office, Saskatchewan.

Agricultural Producers Assoc. of Sask. (APAS) offers members disability insurance AGRIMART

Saskatchewan farmers are 3X EXPRESS more likely to lose time due to injuries compared to any other industry in the province. APAS and the Co-operators and The Edge Benefits are partnering together to offer APAS members income protection and business overhead expense coverage in the event of an injury. “Even though we encourage producers to take every safety precaution, accidents do still happen, and we want to make sure that our members are protected,” says Todd Lewis, APAS president. The Canadian Agricultural Safety Association calls farming a ‘dangerous occupation’ and estimates that ag-

riculture is the fourth most hazardous industry in Canada. “People typically think of insurance as a way of protecting their physical assets like equipment,” says Scott Moffatt, Chief Business Development Officer of The Edge Benefits, “but don’t always consider insuring their most important asset – the people, or in this case, themselves and their farm hands.” APAS members now have exclusive access to a Basic Disability Package that is completely customizable to their needs and costs as little as $2/day. APAS members also have the option to add Business Overhead Coverage for Injuries at a special rate. This extra protection provides monthly reimbursement for fixed operating expenses such as lease payments, interest on debt, utilities,

equipment rental, employee salaries, and more – including the ability to hire a replacement farmer – to ensure the farm continues to thrive during unexpected absences. “Every year there’s a story about a farmer who gets injured and his neighbours rally together to help,” says Jamie Bohach, Director of Member and Key Client Relations for The Co-operators. “While farmers are part of a strong network, not everyone has the same access to the network and every farmer should consider alternatives to keep their farm operation going in the event of an accident or injury.” For more information and to purchase coverage, APAS members can contact The Edge Benefits at 1-877-531EDGE (3343) or, or reach out to a local Co-operators Financial Advisor.

New citizen is proud to be able to pursue her dreams in Canada free from discrimination Matthew Gourlie

Minutes after taking the oath to becoming a Canadian citizen at the recent Citizenship Ceremony held in Moose Jaw on March 19th, Mary Jane Bagui said that one of the things that make her proudest is that she is free to pursue her dreams without discrimination. Bagui has first-hand experience in both pursuing her dreams and helping people pursue theirs in her jobin Human Relations at the Thunder Creek Pork Plant. “It’s really nice to be able to live here without discrimination and without biases and favouritism,” Bagui said. “From an HR perspective, it’s really mind-blowing that we don’t put this in a resume because we don’t do recruitment based on if they have this background or that background. Everybody is equal and not judged by their colour or where they are from…I want to be part of that country where they exercise freedom and rights. “For me being a Canadian and giving back is exercisMary Jane Bagui poses after receiving her Canadian ing my right to vote.” citizenship.

Benefits for both Holy Trinity & Prairie South in new school to be built on South Hill Holy Trinity and Catholic School Division and Prairie South School Division are thrilled with the announcement by the provincial government to build a new school in Moose Jaw that will be jointly used by both divisions. For many years, decaying infrastructure has been a concern for Holy Trinity, as well as for Prairie South as they identified a need several years ago to replace aging facilities on South Hill. Tim McLeod, Board Chair at Prairie South said that the collaboration between the two school divisions is a great example of the community coming together to support something that will have many benefits for the City of

Moose Jaw. Holy Trinity Director Sean Chase added, “While there is lots of work still to be done, the finished school will be something that will serve the needs of children in Moose Jaw for generations.” Holy Trinity and Prairie South School Divisions are hosting a question and answer session at Riverview Collegiate on Thursday, March 28 th at 7:00 pm. For additional information, please contact Director of Education Tony Baldwin at (306)694-1200 (Prairie South) or Director of Education Sean Chase at (306)694-5333 (Holy Trinity).

herself — was one of 47 people from across southern Saskatchewan who was sworn in as a Canadian citizen as part of the citizenship ceremony that was co-hosted by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada and the Institute for Canadian Citizenship. Bagui earned her Bachelor of Science in Psychology in the Philippines but wasn’t able to put her degree to use. Instead, when she arrived in 2013, she began life in Canada by working at Subway and Dairy Queen. She returned to school at Saskatchewan Polytechnic and completed her studies in human resources. “I had to start from scratch. I think I had less than a thousand bucks in my account. I had no car. I moved here because my brother and his family were in Humboldt. I literally had nobody here, no relatives. It was hard,” Bagui said. “I started in the service industry, but after a year I decided I wanted to go back to school and upgrade what I have. The reality is that my education from the Philippines is not equivalent here. It is what it is.”

Moose Jaw Police will be accepting unwanted guns By Larissa Kurz

The Moose Jaw Police Service will be part of a provincial gun amnesty program starting Mar. 25, which offers the public the option to turn over unwanted firearms with no legal repercussions for offenses related to the unlawful possession of such firearms. The program will continue until Apr. 19, and those interested in handing in firearms are asked to call the MJPS at (306) 694-7605 to arrange collection — and not to bring firearms to the police service without calling. Anyone wishing to remove unwanted firearms from their homes safely are welcome to take part.

Although we probably aren’t out of the snowy woods yet, a lot of melting has taken much of the snow away in the last couple of weeks. Every green thumb on the prairies is itching to scratch in the dirt and get spring blossoms blooming and their flower beds and gardens planned and ready for the planting season. Gardening is not for the faint of heart; there may be some Joan Ritchie physical labour involved into EDITOR getting the soil prepared and ready for planting. A person would be foolish is they thought they could just go out and throw some seed in a plot of hard soil and reap results. Not that easy my friend…ask anyone at the farmer’s market how much preparation and work it takes to produce and reap abundant crops. You need to till the soil, and possibly more than once. Is it fertile soil, and the kind you need to plant the seeds you are planning? Some seeds need better drainage, while others can survive and thrive in a heavier mixture. Individuals who you can see have a proven track record in producing excellent crops are a great resource for the lowdown on how to do it. Just ask them; most are willing to share their abundance of information because they take great pleasure and pride in what they produce. You can spot these over-producers in the garden patch by their beaming faces and exuberance when engaging on the subject. Other great resources for information are the internet and books on the subject. Of course, there’s also the school of hard knocks where people learn from experience and make the appropriate changes to get optimal results. That is, if they are quick learners! And as we all know, we can have the best intentions, put in all the prep work required and still may not get the results we were expecting due to forces beyond our control… scorching heat that burns the plants, too much rain, unexpected frost that could stunt growth, insects that consume the plants both above and below ground, not enough or too much fertilizer or maybe not the right kind for what you are producing…and here’s hoping that you use organic products that won’t kill you, stunt your growth or cause some… And then, as many green-thumbers know, planting by the moon is a necessary compliance. The older set believe in this phenomenon and strictly adhere to it, and for one that considers themselves an in-betweener, I have seen from others and my own experience, it works. And if you haven’t heard yet, there are multiple health benefits to gardening, not to mention the abundance of nutrient rich garden vegetables you have to consume. A study done a few years ago noted that gardening could reduce the risk of dementia by 36%. This makes me wonder why more senior health care facilities don’t have garden plots for their dementia patrons to putter in? There is also exercise involved in gardening; that is a good thing for the blood pressure and body, and who doesn’t enjoy a happier countenance? It’s a mood booster. Did I mention, it is noted that a substantial percent of the population gets more pleasure out of gardening that from sex?

The Cultural Centre has tracked down the King and invited him to put on a show — well, actually it is Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Dean Z, which is really as close as you can get to Elvis himself. “One Night With You,” starring Dean Z is a show meant to honour the legacy of the King of Rock n’ Roll; the tour will be stopping here on Apr. 6 to bring a piece of Las Vegas to the prairies. Dean Zeligman, stage name Dean Z, has never been to Saskatchewan to perform and is excited to be bringing his tour to Moose Jaw for the first time. His love of Elvis started when he was just a kid, and he remains infatuated with performing and bringing the magic of Elvis to audiences across the world. “Being on stage is a feeling I don’t know how to replicate off stage. It’s a special sort of feeling you can only get when you’re entertaining people,” said Dean. “Because of Elvis, I was opened up to a whole world of music — music that, frankly, wouldn’t even exist if it wasn’t for Elvis breaking down the barriers that he did.” Dean’s show will include some of Elvis’s best from the The show is completely live, with a 12-piece band, live 50’s and 60’s.

Northern Fallout set to release debut album Scott Hellings

It has been a long road to get to this point, but local band Northern Fallout will soon release their debut album with a CD release party at Chillers on Saturday, March 30. The band started in 2014. They were originally known as Perpetua but discovered there was a similar band in Scotland with the same name. A change was needed and they eventually settled on Northern Fallout. They are excited to finally have an album to share with others. “It is basically all of the songs we have written over the last five years as a band. It took us a year and a half to record it and get the final product. We are really proud of it. It is 10 songs that really express our different influences,” said vocalist Dan Hayward.

“Expect your ears to be ringing. It is a loud, fast paced, and an aggressive experience,” -vocalist Dan Hayward.

“That is one thing that excites me about finally releasing this product — it won’t just be a local thing, we will have something that can push out further,” said Hunter. “Except for our couple of singles, nobody has really heard us, aside from the people in southern Saskatchewan where we travel and do our shows. Everything we have worked for is now going to become a product that we can market.” Getting to this point has taken a lot of hard work. Hayward spent 15 years as a solo acoustic artist. As

you might expect, it is a much different experience transitioning to a metal band. “Writing the songs, the first couple came quite easily, but I couldn’t perform them properly. I was using everything from pudding or anything thick to coat my throat so I could scream. But I wasn’t doing it properly and it would show, because we would go through three songs and my voice would be shot for two days after that,” said Hayward. “Eventually, something just kind of clicked.” The show will prove to be a crowd pleaser. “Expect your ears to be ringing. It is a loud, fast paced, and an aggressive experience,” said Hayward. “We practice as much as we can to be good live. I’ve always been really

disappointed when you go see a band live and they just suck live because they did too much on the album production wise. We really wanted to steer clear of that. We feel the album should sound like the performance.” The album will be available on all major streaming platforms, as well as iTunes. Physical copies will be available at the show while supplies last. The show will also feature SaintVicious and Sing the Body Electric. The doors open at 8 and the show will start at 9 p.m. There is a $10 admission, which includes a free Northern Fallout t-shirt while supplies lasts. Visit ReverbNation for more information on Northern Fallout, or follow the band on Facebook.

St. Mary students learn about energy efficiency Scott Hellings

Gr. 7 students at St. Mary School had the opportunity to learn about energy efficient buildings on March 13 at the Western Development Museum. The exhibit is presented by the Saskatchewan Environmental Society (SES). Karla Rasmussen, education and public programs coordinator with

This station highlighted building materials.


the Western Development Museum says they have a great partnership with the SES. “Sometimes it seems like an abstract thought to have science in a history museum, but there are ways we can tie that in,” said Rasmussen. “This part with the workshops is very specific about net zero homes and how to retrofit homes that are already in existence. The second part of this is the students will go into the museum itself and they will look at some of the building replicas, as well as the museum facility itself. They will ask if energy is escaping out the museum door. They will ask what kind of insulation would have been used in the mechanic’s shop back in the 1900s, that sort of thing.” The students moved from station to sta-

The Low-Down on 2019-20 Saskatchewan Budget

The 2019-20 Budget is balanced, with a projected surplus of $34.4 million. Higher surpluses of $49 million, $72 million, and $84 million are projected for the three fiscal years that follow. The government’s operational debt will not increase in 2019-20. Revenue is forecast at $15.03 billion, up about $782 million, or 5.5 per cent, compared to last year’s budget. Expense of $14.99 billion is projected, up from the previous year’s budget by $382 million, or 2.6 per cent. Investing in Health Total investment in health in 2019-20 is projected to be $5.89 billion, an increase of $123 million, or 2.1 per cent, compared to last year’s budget. The budget increases operating funding to the Saskatchewan Health Authority to $3.6 billion, up more than $113 million, or 3.2 per cent, compared to last year. Funding for targeted mental health and addictions initiatives is increasing by nearly $30 million in this budget to a total of nearly $402 million. The 2019-20 Budget also provides a $700,000 increase for the Autism Individualized Funding benefit, increasing the benefit from $4,000 to $6,000 per year for children under age six.

Provincial Budget 2019-20 - The Right Balance MLAs Column

Warren Michelson Moose Jaw North

The Saskatchewan Provincial Budget was presented last Wednesday by Finance Minister Donna Harpauer. This Warren Michelson, MLA is a balanced budget, and the right balance for Saskatchewan citizens, with a projected surplus of $34.4 million. Revenue is forecast at $15.03 billion, up about $782 million, compared to last year’s budget. Expense of $14.99 billion is projected, up from the previous year’s budget by $382 million. This budget strikes the right balance to strengthen our economy, provide needed services, manage spending and keep taxes low. Of considerable interest to Moose Jaw is the announcement of planning and design funding for a joint-use school that will consolidate and replace Sacred Heart and St. Mary, as well as Empire and Westmount Schools. The Prairie South and Holy Trinity school divisions also received a boost in funding in this year’s budget. Province-wide there is $1.9 billion in operating funding for the school divisions, an increase of more than $26 million over last year while Education Property Tax rates remain unchanged. Infrastructure investment, including Crowns, is $2.7 billion. This will include the completion of the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital in Saskatoon, completion of the Regina Bypass, and improvements to 1,000 kilometres of highway. The budget invests in construction of a new long-term care facility in Meadow Lake as well as provides funding for preconstruction design of a new Victoria Hospital in Prince Albert and the planning and design of a new hospital in Weyburn. Infrastructure improvements also include 41 new SaskTel cellular sites to improve wireless service. This is part of a two-year initiative to add 100 new cellular sites, connecting the farm to the city, in smaller communities across Saskatchewan. Municipal infrastructure funding exceeds $229 million in this budget, an 11 per cent increase from last year. The 2019-20 Budget includes a strong focus on mental health. Funding for targeted mental health and addictions initiatives is increasing by nearly $30 million in this budget to a total of nearly $402 million. This represents the largest commitment ever to mental health services in Saskatchewan, and it includes funding for more than 140 new beds for mental health and addictions treatment, funding to recruit and train more health care professionals to treat crystal meth and opioid addictions and funding for 18 new mental health walk-in counselling clinics. The Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability (SAID) program will receive a $6.3 million increase, increased funding for private service homes and third-party agencies that provide services for persons with intellectual disabilities, $3.5 million to transition youth with intellectual disabilities to adult disability services, and $2.6 million to provide residential and day programming services to high-needs adults who urgently require services. New funding of $500,000 will continue to improve access to respite supports for families caring for adult children with intellectual disabilities. Our government is committed to improving care for seniors by investing in the replacement of 13 long-term care facilities for seniors across the province, along with increases to home care support. The 2019-20 Budget will also provide $1.1 million—an increase of more than $660,000—to the Alzheimer Society for the First Link program. This budget is good news for the people of Moose Jaw and the people of our province. It will help our economy grow so we can continue to provide the services needed, like health, education and social supports. The 2019-20 Budget is The Right Balance for our Province.

Local Environment Ministry field office closing to the public permanently Moose Jaw Express Staff

The Moose Jaw and Assiniboia field offices in the Ministry of the Environment will be closed to the public starting on May 14. The Saskatchewan Ministry of the Environment announced that 19 of their field offices will no longer have counter service available to the public. Conservation officers will remain working out of those offices, but they will no longer be open to the public. The closures will result in the loss of 16 part-time and three full-time staff positions. Hunting and angling licences can be purchased through private vendors in Moose Jaw, but the nearest field office that will

open to the public will be in Regina. The Ministry of the Environment Clients formerly served in these locations will be encouraged to use electronic self-serve options such as the online Hunting, Angling and Trapping Licence (HAL) system. According to the Ministry of the Environment, in 2018, there were more than 409,000 hunting and angling licenses sold in the province. The 19 impacted offices accounted for approximately only two per cent of all provincial license sales. The ministry expects the closures to save $600,000 per year.

Biting the Tin Sandwich

I was recently re-introduced to an old friend, a very old friend and a very musical old friend and I wondered how I could lose track…but it happens. I was digging through some old boxes of musical stuff that haven’t been opened in at least a decade and by Dale “bushy” was thrilled to find about a dozen of my old harmonBush icas. Collected over the decades, some of the old tin sandwiches (cowboy lingo for harmonica) were definitely showing their age. Surprisingly, most of them have held their tune. I couldn’t resist the temptation when I found them and wailed away at the top of my lungs, immediately discovering another couple of things: The cat was sleeping nearby and didn’t appreciate my harmonica “music” but the dog next door did appreciate harmonica “music” and joined me in some mournful wailing as he howled his mournful harmonies. I began playing a harmonica when I was about 8 or nine when my grandmother gave me a Hohner Marine Band harmonica. Some folks say it is the best and after all this time, I still have that harp in my case. Grandma said that as long as I had a pocket,

I could carry a symphony with me. Portability is one of the reasons I harp about harmonicas; there’s always room in the backpack or a jacket for an instrument that can be campfire-corny or smoke-filled bar-room bluesy. As a matter of fact, the jacket I wear the most these days seemed to have a pocket made with harmonica storage in mind. You would think that having an instrument that is 60 years old would make it old, but the original harmonicas or reed instruments called “Sheng” (sublime voice) were made by the Chinese about 4000 years ago. These early reed instruments have changed a lot since then, but all reed instruments use vibrations to produce sound. In the late 1700’s, someone joined a grouping of different pitch pipes and the harmonica began to take shape, although these pipes would only make sound by blowing. It took about 50 years before improvements began to resemble the modern harmonica. Advances in design and manufacturing, along with a relatively low cost, has made the harmonica a favorite of many genres and styles of music. When Bob Dylan burst onto the folk music scene playing guitar and harmonica at the same time, harmonica sales soared higher than Dylan’s nasal-tone. I was one of those people who thought that if Bob Dylan could sell records with an almost irritating voice (and his definitely irritating wheezing on a harmonica), then why not give it a go. I never took

into consideration that he wrote some of the most beautiful poetry and music in mankind’s history. Not only did sales of harmonicas set records, sales of the neck-brace harmonica-holder that Bob Dylan used increased as well. If my personal experience with those harp holders is any indication, there may have been an increase in emergency room self-induced harmonica-holder strangulations. Let’s just say, I no longer try to play guitar and harmonica together and I say the scars from the experience are from hockey. Inspired by the rediscovery of my harmonicas, I have not only replaced my old rusty jacket harp with a new version but have been playing my heart (and lungs) out at some of the local Blues Jamms. Replacing these old harmonicas will not happen overnight because the good ones are expensive. It will take some budgeting, but if there is a few dollars to spare in my BCRF (Beer Can Retirement Fund), I am going to blow it on a tin sandwich.

Prairie Artist and Sculptor Joe Fafard leaves a lasting impression Moose Jaw Express Staff

Saskatchewan renowned artist and sculptor Joe Fafard passed away on March 16th, 2019, at the age of 76 years. Currently residing on an acreage by Lumsden, Sk, the distinguished artist was celebrated throughout the country and worldwide, having exhibitions that exemplified his influences from Saskatchewan surroundings. Born in Sainte_Marthe, Saskatchewan in 1942, Fafard received a B.S.A. from the University of Manitoba in 1966 and a M.F.A. from Pennsylvania State University. From 1968 to 1974, he taught sculpture at the Regina University Campus and was a visiting lecturer at the University of California from 198081. As a recognizable influence in the arts scene

in Canada, Fafard was named an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1981 and was awarded the Architectural Institute of Canada Allied Arts Award in 1987. He also received an Honorary Degree from the U of R in 1989. As a sculptor, he used plaster and ceramic to create his sculptures, until he switched to bronze as his primary medium in the 1980s. Fafard opened the Julienne Atelier foundry in Pense, Sk in 1985. Another of Fafard’s accomplishments was the privilege of having his work featured on a series of postage stamps issued by Canada Post in 2012. Also noteworthy was the installation of his vivid sculpture Running Horses (2007) in 2011 adjacent to the Sussex Drive entrance of the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. Joe Fafard

I have grounds for arguing the health benefits of coffee‌ by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor While it does not happen very often, I like it when I discover research that shows that something I really enjoy is actually good for me. I have yet to find scientific evidence showing potato chips are a superfood and I was disappointed to find Ferrero Rocher chocolates were not included in the recently revised Canada’s Food Guide. However, with a jittery smile on my face, I’ve been learning more about the positive health benefits of one of my favourite beverages, coffee! I recently read an odd coffee-related study looking at how coffee intake may affect the mortality rate of persons di-

agnosed with colorectal cancer. The research, published in the March 2018 edition of the journal Gastroenterology, found an association between coffee intake (both caffeinated and de-caffeinated) after diagnosis of colorectal cancer, and reduced mortality. In other words, the coffee drinkers lived longer than non-coffee drinkers. Research associating coffee with other health benefits has also been documented in recent years. Coffee may protect the liver, as coffee drinkers have a lower risk of liver cancer. There is also evidence showing coffee may protect us from Type 2 Diabetes. Coffee may be considered heart-healthy as it may help reduce calcium deposits in our arteries. Coffee drinkers may also have healthier nerves and brains. Improved mood, less mental fatigue and improved visual information processing were also noted among coffee drinkers, more so in those who ingested caffeinated over de-caffeinated coffee. Coffee has also been shown to have a positive effect on Parkinson’s patients and it may also reduce the risk of contracting Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

There is always a “however�, and here is the “however� when it comes to drinking coffee. While coffee maybe beneficial in some ways, too much of a good thing can be harmful. Coffee may make some more alert, but coffee drinkers often report being more “jittery� as well. Coffee may aggravate those who suffer from gastric reflux and also those who have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Moderation is the key here and knowing how and when your body reacts negatively to too much is important in limiting the potential negative side effects of coffee. Scientists are beginning to understand that there is more to coffee than the caffeine. Positive health effects are seen in both regular and decaf forms. Improved mood, alertness and focus may not be due to caffeine at all, but to a group of compounds called chlorogenic acids (CGAs) found in both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee. CGA’s themselves have anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, anti-obesity and anti-carcinogenic effects, all leading to improved health outcomes. Until conflicting research comes out.... coffee is my friend.

Never buy hay/silage from Australia By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express


The loss of chemical weed controls to herbicide-resistant weeds scares him. Globally, herbicide-resistant weeds exist in 70 countries with 225 species. Pre-harvest control methods in Australia include tank mix chemicals, diverse rotation, high seeding rates, narrow row spac-

EXPRESS A Saskatchewan farmer with Australian roots says harvest time is best to control herbicide-resistant weeds. “Australian farmers are adopting harvest weed seed control like crazy,� Josh Lade of Osler told a Sask. Wheat workshop in Moose Jaw. “Forty per cent of Australian farmers adopt some form of harvest weed control� with 80 per cent adoption expected in five years. “To do nothing with them is a mistake,� said the Australian-born farmer. “You’re just going to spread them next year. Doing something is better than nothing. “Any weed seeds present at harvest time have got through anything we did.� Harvest time control is no silver bullet but drives seed numbers down. Methods vary from a spray bar on swathers to cleaning the combine with high air pressure, chaff liners and chaff carts to collect and burn seeds to bale direct systems on harvest equipment.

concerns. A more expensive control involves installing a hammer mill that pulverizes weed seeds. The Weed Terminator, invented by his cousin, costs $100,000 with $10,000 annual maintenance costs but can pay for itself in five years, said Lade. Control methods “can buy up to 10 years� if up to 50 per cent of seeds are eliminated at harvest. “I don’t believe anything we can do is going to beat this problem. Let’s try and adopt as many of these techniques now before we are forced to.�

Aircraft leasing potential seen for high flying investor gains The aviation industry is one of the strongest growth sectors globally but the puzzle for investors is how to cash in on the stock market. Over the long run, airlines have shown they are not consistent profit growth flyers. Aircraft manufacturers have been great but the Boeing 737 Max 6 situation shows the kind of risks involved for investors. Aircraft leasing companies could solve the puzzle. The leasing companies are essentially financiers and distributors of airplanes. The advantages of leasing range from avoiding the need for up front capital to buy to convenience. Placing an order with a manufacturer means a two or three year wait. The leasing companies have a steady flow of purchases they can lease right away as needed. And they can return leased aircraft. The global aircraft fleet was 14.7 per cent

leased in 1990, is now 40.7 per cent on lease. Demand for new aircraft to 2030 will double the global fleet to 48,500 not counting replacement units. The big risk with leasing companies are sudden jumps in interest rates that make leasing unattractive – an unlikely occurrence – and companies that hand back aircraft. Usually, they are re-leased within months. Planes coming off 20-year leases are usually re-sold at a nice profit. Today Bizworld will briefly summarize four aircraft leasing operations. Irish-based Aercap Holdings, priced around $44.58 US, is the world’s largest aircraft leasing company with $43.2 billion assets. This operator has 363 aircraft from AirBus and Boeing with a few from Embraer. The fast-growing Asian market makes up 35 per cent of business. Debt ratio of 3.3 times equity is higher

than most competitors. Los Angeles-based Air Lease Corporation, priced around $34.17 US, has $18.5 billion assets with 336 aircraft. The company has commitments to buy $25.7 billion in aircraft on the books with Asia making up 45 per cent of its current fleet. Debt is 2.4 times equity. Another Irish-based operator Fly Leasing Company Limited, priced around $13.46 US, has assets of $3.7 billion with 113 aircraft flying. Asian leases are 33 per cent of business. Debt is a high four times investor equity. The only Canadian company in this group is Chorus Aviation, priced around, $7.23 has assets of $2.3 billion. Debt is 2.9 times equity. Nova Scotia-based Chorus is a hybrid — operating airlines and leasing aircraft. The company flies the Jazz and Voyageur Airlines under contract to Air Canada. The contract was just extended but Cho-

rus gave up some margin to get the longterm deal. Aircraft leasing operations are only three years old for the company with 34 planes on lease – all of them from Canada’s Bombardier. Canada’s big successful long-term investor Prem Watsa has poured $200 million into Chorus to expand leasing. And Air Canada took a $112 million stake in the company. The Chorus dividend yields 6.6 per cent. Air Lease Corporation dividend yields 1.5 per cent. The others pay no dividend, preferring to plough all cash into growth. CAUTION: Remember when investing, consult your adviser and do your homework before buying any security. Bizworld does not recommend investments. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Small dog park field currently unusable By Larissa Kurz

Tim & the Glory Boys bringing their bluegrass to Moose Jaw

“Our shows are just big ‘ole parties, lots of fist-slinging, sing-along type stuff, and just fun; lots of blue collar comedy,” promises Tim Neufeld. By Larissa Kurz

Moose Jaw is only one stop on the prairie-wide party that Tim Neufeld & the Glory Boys are calling The Buffalo Roadshow tour, which is promoting their third studio album and bracketing the 2019 JUNO Awards — which Tim & the Glory Boys have been nominated for, actually. The boys are a bluegrass country band, featuring all the classic hillbilly instruments: an upright bass, banjo, dobro, fiddle, and of course, foot-stomping. “We’re always super ambitious with our production; some would say over-ambitious, but we stuff our trailer as much as we can with production: lights, and set pieces, and stuff,” said Neufeld. “It’s a bit of a gong show, honestly, but it’s a fun one.” The group visited Moose Jaw on their last tour and had only good things to say about the city. Neufeld said he had driven by so many times and was glad to finally have a chance to stop in. They’re looking forward to returning to the Friendly City, and had a few things on the agenda that they’re hoping to do. “Well, we hope to go to the Boston Pizza; I hear its the best Boston Pizza in the country,” said Neufeld first, adding, “We kind of fell in love with Moose Jaw last time we were there.” The nature of their music lends itself to a real connection with small towns and cities like Moose Jaw, one that Neufeld appreciates. “We just have a special connection with any little prairie town, whether it’s Moose Jaw or like the place we’re from, Winnipeg,” said Neufeld. “We dig the

plains, and always look forward to getting back to places like Moose Jaw.” The group’s most recent album, The Buffalo Roadshow, has been nominated for Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year at this year’s JUNO Awards, the group’s fourth nomination in that category and Neufeld’s ninth nomination overall. Neufeld is grateful to be nominated and recognized by fans and the industry, in such a way. “It’s always an honor to get nominated,

PH 306-691-0080

and it feels extra great because it’s your peers in the industry who are behind the nomination,” said Neufeld. “It’s a massive confidence booster too, when you can win something like a Juno and know that there’s at least some people that are into what you’re doing, and you should keep on keeping on.” Currently, they will be attending the awards on Mar. 17, and they’re excited to be a part of the non-stop events planned. “For four guys who really probably

should be swinging hammers and fixing faucets or whatever other blue-collar thing that we would be doing, it’s like this dream that just keeps on going, and we get to do it together, and we’re so grateful for the opportunities,” said Neufeld. The tour, of course, will go on after the JUNO interlude, and Tim & the Glory Boys will be performing at the Hillcrest Apostolic Church in Moose Jaw on Apr. 4. Tickets for the event can be purchased through the tour’s website, and it sounds as though the group hopes to spend some time in the city while they’re able — so, if you see them or their beards wandering downtown, stop and say hi. In the end, Neufeld just hopes that their music can convey to its audience a kind of perspective on their lives, one rooted in the benefits of gratitude. “Gratitude is the secret sauce to really enjoying life. And enjoying life is pretty much everybody’s pursuit, and whether it’s the album or the live show, it’s just a bunch of songs that are about taking stock of the little things in life, the little blessings, and knowing where they’re coming from and from that place of gratitude, just living your life,” said Neufeld. “And then whether it’s good or bad, or you’re going through trials or your living your best life, gratitude still works, and that’s what we hope they take from [the album].” The Buffalo Roadshow is available to stream on Apple Music and Spotify, and will be on tour across the prairies until early May, ending off in Ontario.

Survivors come to Moose Jaw to discuss the history of Canada’s LGBT purge Matthew Gourlie

When Michelle Douglas was fired from her job in the Canadian Armed Forces because of her sexual orientation, she never expected that she should be welcomed back on a military base with open arms. However, that is what happened Saturday at 15 Wing Moose Jaw as Douglas and Wayne Davis visited the city to raise awareness about the LGBT purge from the civil service during the Cold War and screen a documentary by Sarah Fodey called The Fruit Machine about that era of Canadian history. “I can tell you directly that there is very high-level support from the Canadian Armed Forces for the work that we’re doing here in Moose Jaw,” Douglas said. “Rear-Admiral Jennifer Bennett has been personally involved in supporting an enhanced outreach initiative including this trip to Saskatchewan. That’s why we’re particularly honoured to be greeted by the Wing Commander (Col. Denis O’Reilly) and the Base Chief Warrant Officer (John Hall). It’s the kind of warm welcome that, frankly, I didn’t expect that we would have, but I’m delighted that they’re going to be there and it says a lot.” A class action lawsuit was launched by members of the RCMP, Military and public service who experienced, to one degree or another, discrimination between 1955 and 1996. The survivors of the LGBT purge reached a settlement with the federal government in June 2018 with

up to $110 million set aside for the payment of damages to LGBT purge victims. Douglas and Davis are both board members for the non-profit LGBT Purge Fund and came to Saskatchewan to raise awareness about the fund which is nearing its April 25, 2019 deadline for people to apply for compensation. “We thought it was important to make a trip here to do as much as we could to encourage people to be aware of this class action settlement and to consider applying for it,” Douglas said. “Saskatchewan is our first stop and one of the reasons we’ve come here quite deliberately is because our information is such that those applying for compensation to this fund 19035NP0 19035NP1

from Saskatchewan is quite low.” Davis and Douglas were both victims of the LGBT Purge. Davis joined the RCMP in 1967 and attained the rank of Staff-Sergeant in his 18-year career before he was forced out. Douglas joined the Canadian Forces in 1986 and worked in the Military Police branch. She said that “the family business is public service.” Her father, who is originally from Gull Lake, spent 35 years in the federal public service. “I was always compelled by the idea of service and serving my country,” Douglas said. “I loved my service in the Canadian Armed Forces. It was what I was looking for. I was very good at it and I worked very hard to be an excellent officer. I learned a great deal. I felt empowered and very motivated by the work I was doing, but that all came crashing down and it was just so unfortunate. I was the top candidate in every military course I took. I was on a track to be advancing well in my career, but it just didn’t matter to them. It was only my sexual orientation that mattered to them. They fired me for being ‘not advantageously employable due to homosexuality.’” In response, she mounted a landmark legal challenge and in doing so the policy that led to her dismissal formally ended in the Armed Forces in October 1992 as the government settled the case. “It’s been a long journey for me. I now have the role of being a leader as part of this effort that’s trying to reach out to all Canadians to tell them about this period in time, to reflect on some of my own journey and to be a support and to encourage those who experienced the purge,” said Douglas who was the founding president of the Foundation for Equal Families and is the chair of the Canadian board of directors for WE Charity. “I’m also working with a team of people who are calling on the leadership of the military, RCMP and public service to really put solid practices in place around training to give meaning to the words diversi-

ty and inclusion. Not just notions of those concepts, but practically take a leadership role there.” Douglas said that she has seen tremendous progress in the work environment for the military, RCMP and public service since she was fired back in 1989. “The progress that we’ve made actually puts Canada at the front of most countries in the world in this regard,” she said. “People are treated with dignity, respect and their identity, their gender expression and identity is respected, so I’ve seen tremendous change.” That said, it’s still important to know the history of the past. She is proud to have been part of The Fruit Machine documentary and to be able to bring it to 15 Wing. The title comes from the name of the test devised by the Canadian government to determine a person’s sexuality by analyzing the dilation of the pupils of the subject when they were shown pornographic images of people of the same sex. “This is an important documentary that has been produced,” Douglas said. “As a cast member in the documentary and knowing so many of the others who are in the movie so well now, we’re deeply honoured to be in it. We feel the film really captures the history, the emotion and the scars that emerged from this period. It’s quite profound and at times funny, but often sad film that we hope as many people can see as possible. It’s an incredible educational tool.” Anyone who has been affected by the LGBT purge can still apply for compensation by visiting LGBTpurgesettlement. com. “In many cases, the possible levels of settlement are quite significant,” Douglas said. “If family members of those who are no longer with us wish to apply, they may also be eligible — while not for financial compensation — but for other measures like letters of apology or things of that nature.”

Pruning elm trees in Saskatchewan is illegal from April 1st to August 31st To dispose of any elm wood at the Moose Jaw City Landfill, individuals need to get a permit that is free of charge from the Parks and Recreation Department. Elm bark beetles, which play a critical role in the transmission of Dutch Elm Disease (DED), are attracted to pruning wounds during the ban period. The beetle is the main carrier of the fungus responsible for DED and travels from infected trees, where they deposit their eggs, to healthy trees to feed. By flying from tree to tree, these beetles deliver spores of the fungus in a very effective manner. “In 2018, the City of Moose Jaw had 18 positive cases of Dutch Elm Disease,” stated Sarah Regent, Parks Gardener for the City of Moose Jaw. “Elms are some of the most valuable trees in our city and you can help protect our elm tree population by pruning out deadwood before the pruning ban takes effect and promptly disposing of all elm wood.” For additional information and help identifying elm trees please contact the City of Moose Jaw Parks and Recreation Department or use the Parks & Recreation links at

Thanks to the Federal Carbon Tax, SaskPower and SaskEnergy Bill Increases Expected Saskatchewan residents will have to be digging deeper into their pockets to pay more on all bills received by SaskPower and SaskEnergy because of the imposition of the federal carbon tax, thanks to our Federal Government. A monthly increase of about $2 for power and $9 for natural gas is expected for this year. “In Prairie Resilience, our government has a Saskatchewan-based solution to lower greenhouse gas emissions without a tax,� Minister Responsible for SaskPower Dustin Duncan said. “SaskPower worked hard to ensure there would be no rate increase this year. The federal government is imposing a carbon tax that will take more than $52 million this year and $546 million through 2022 from SaskPower customers.� “Our government is currently reviewing a request by SaskEnergy to reduce natural gas commodity rates to

their lowest level in 20 years, effective April 1,� Minister Responsible for SaskEnergy Bronwyn Eyre said. “These savings would be wiped out by the Federal Liberals’ carbon tax, resulting in higher natural gas bills for homes and businesses. SaskEnergy serves 114,000 more homes and businesses, compared to three decades ago, and yet this larger customer base uses the same amount of natural gas as the smaller customer base did in 1988. This change happened through information, dedication and education—not unnecessary legislation.� While the Government of Saskatchewan is challenging the carbon tax in court, it still applies during the legal process and is expected to increase annually. The charge will be applied to SaskPower bills related to electricity produced by power-generating sources like coal and natural gas. This charge will equal an aver-

age 2.7 per cent rate increase for 2019, which reflects the estimated additional cost to generate power from these sources. For the average residential customer, it means an increase of $18 over the course of the year, rising to $63 in 2022. On average, individual industrial customers will be paying an additional $164,600 this year, rising to $617,500 in 2022. SaskEnergy customers will be paying about $70 million more the first year because of the Federal Carbon Tax. Customers can expect an additional charge of $1/Gigajoule or about $109 more this year for the average residential customer. There will be additional increases of about $54 per year through 2022.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Is it brain confusion or schadenfreude?

A school friend was notoriously prone to accidents, such as while wearing rubber boots to walk over ice and snow. When she inevitably fell down, a second friend laughed out loud and had trouble getting her mirth Joyce Walter under control. For Moose Jaw Express This was not an isolated incident of laughter. Similar laughter was expected from her in all cases such as the one involving rubber boots on ice or when a toboggan was steered into a pole and riders experienced pain as a result. Eventually, we all laughed with her, this laughter being contagious and not meant in a hurtful manner. These scenes came back to me the other day as a friend of my mature years texted her laughter at me while I was suffering from a blockage of the throat by a large pill taken to help keep my legs free from pain. Swallowing what are often referred to as “horse pills� because of their size has been a growing problem for me and on this particular day, the mouthful of water did not flush it down properly and problems ensued.

the Heimlich manoeuvre but I declined because I was still able to speak and breathe and I suspected some rib crush or other damage might result from his wellmeant gesture. After gagging and burping and being otherwise unmannerly, the pill was still there, blocking all attempts to push it down or bring it up. So off we travelled to the hospital where with embarrassment I explained what had happened. No one laughed at my circumstance, for which I was grateful. While waiting for the prescribed Ginger Ale and dry food to work, I killed time by texting my mature friend, telling her of my condition, the gagging, the burping, the pain — expecting some sympathy, or at least one of those unhappy-faced emoji symbols. Instead I got digital laughter and the comment: “I just had a mental picture. I shouldn’t laugh but can’t help it‌Lol.â€? Later that evening, after I had eaten a meal of slippery Kraft Dinner, she texted to ask about my condition, then ruined the moment by telling me she had to quit laughing because she got a headache. Poor thing. If I had laughed at her headache, it would have given me “Schadenfreudeâ€? — a feeling of joy some people

get while seeing the pain or misfortune of others. Another source I studied about this situation came up with the diagnosis of “brain confusion� to describe why laughter is involved with others’ pain, perhaps subscribing to the old saying of “I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.� And a third explanation is that laughter is a natural painkiller. I don’t understand how her laughter could have cured the pain in my throat. Instead, I will credit the doctor for helping me get rid of my throat obstruction. Will I forgive the laughter at my expense? Perhaps. Right now my brain is confused and I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. And thank you for asking — my throat is still tender. The horse pills have been set aside for now and so far there is no pain in the leg or elsewhere. Joyce Walter can be reached at

who had occupied the Netherlands for five years. Following a nine-month campaign with many lives lost on the battlefield, the Germans capitulated. The darkness of those years is related by Brian Stewart, “Under German occupation from 1940 to ‘45, the Dutch suffered more deaths per capita than any other Western European ally. The vast majority of its Jews, 106,000, were deported and murdered; thousands of other Dutch were dragged into slave labour, while all suffered as Nazis looted the land and even blew the dikes in the terrible winter of 1944-45 to try and block the Allied advance. The ensuing flooding contributed to a famine that killed 18,000.... After forcing the German surrender, Canadian soldiers joined in the celebrations, then quietly began delivering food and volunteered to work restoring the devastated farms and towns.” As David Common states, “Around 14,000 Canadians came ashore at Normandy in 1944 — those who survived those battles and the many decades since are few in number.” “The ‘Canadian War Cemetery Holten’ on the Holterberg is one of the most impressive reminders of the Second World War.

Seed Royalties The federal government is once again trying to handcuff farmers with new proposals around seed that will affect the industry for decades to come. The fundamental blocks of our food system, seeds, are now to be controlled by a shrinking number of large corporations. What an insult to our province and its proud agricultural heritage. The new proposals mean farmers would not be able to save the seed they have grown in previous years without paying royalties. Hundreds of millions of dollars would be taken from the pockets of farming families and end up in the coffers of companies that often don’t reinvest in our rural communities. The new regulations would apply to all newly-registered plant material: wheat grown by you, seeds from your apple trees, or potatoes grown in your garden… The list goes on. To add insult to injury, seed companies that register new varieties would have exclusive rights to dictate how you grow, clean, treat, sell or store the plant material. This cuts to the heart of what it means to be a farmer. The Canadian government need not interfere with a proud, time-honoured tradition of innovation here in Saskatchewan. For many years, most plant breeding -- and associated seed creation -- has been funded by the public or farmers themselves, allowing easy access to new, better varieties of crop. Farmers should have the final word, and agriculture must be attractive to our youngest farmers. Proposals like these undermine the pride and independence they have in their work. Regardless of our political stripes, we must collectively take a stand for the future of farming and our rural communities, before it’s too late. Jared Clarke Edenwold, SK

Rural crime activity information plan set up By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS With financial assistance from the province, the RCMP has started a program to get information on criminal activity out to southern Saskatchewan rural residents faster. RCMP detachment commanders will send information via texts, e-mails or phone call messages to rural residents. Residents can sign up and choose which of the three message forms they would like. “When an RCMP detachment becomes aware of an incident or crime, they can issue an advisory via the system and local residents who have signed up for the program will become aware of what happened,” Saskatchewan RCMP Commanding Officer Assistant Commissioner Mark Fisher said. “Equipped with this in-

formation, citizens will be in a better position to provide tips and information to their local RCMP.” The program, using the Saskatchewan Crime Watch Advisory Network, and funded by $50,000 from the province will be evaluated later with possible extension to other regions of the province. “This mass notification system adds to the basket of tools and peace of mind for our members,” said Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities President Ray Orb. Residents can sign up by going online to or Increased rural crime has been an issue since oil prices declined in 2014 but declined three per cent last year.

From The Kitchen Tu r k e y n e c k s d e s e r ve m o re re sp e c t By Joyce Walter For Moose Jaw Express

While the thought of eating meat from turkey necks sends some people screaming from the room, there are others who will gladly place a turkey neck on their plate. The necks might be difficult to find so when they are available in local stores, it is wise to stock up for future use. They freeze well and become a treat whenever the appetite craves a neck or two. •••

Turkey Neck Soup 6 turkey necks 2-3 medium potatoes 2-3 medium carrots 1 medium turnip 1 large parsnip 1 small onion 1 celery rib 1 1/2 cups rice 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. pepper 1 cup flour

In a large pot, cover necks with water and boil for 2 hours, replenishing water as necessary to retain cover. Meanwhile peel and chop vegetables. After two hours, remove necks from water and stir in flour until no lumps remain. Add vegetables and salt and pepper. When neck are cool enough to handle, remove meat from bones and return to pot with vegetables. Cook for 45 minutes on simmer until vegetables are tender. Add rice and cook 15 minutes. Makes about 8 cups of soup. •••

Brown Stew Turkey Necks 1 lb. turkey necks, cut into 1-inch pieces 4 tbsps. jerk sauce or 2 tbsps. brown-

ing sauce 2 tbsps. spicy barbecue rub 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. ground ginger 1 green onion, chopped 1 clove garlic, chopped 1 medium yellow onion, sliced 1/2 green pepper, sliced 1/2 orange pepper, sliced 8 oz. amber beer

Wash necks and cover with rub and sauce and a splash of vinegar. Cover and marinate 2-3 hours in refrigerator. Place necks and marinade in a saucepan and simmer on low for 45 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and simmer an additional 45 minutes. Remove cover and simmer 30 minutes or until stew reaches desired thickness. Let stand 10 minutes. Serve with rice. •••

Necks and Rice 3-4 turkey necks salt and pepper to taste water to cover necks 1 1/2 cups Minute rice

Place necks in a small roasting pan, add salt and pepper and cover with water. Cover roaster then place in oven at 350 degrees F. Cook until necks are soft and meat begins to fall off.

Vital Community Conversation opens to citizens

The chance to give some community input in regard to programs offered by the Parks and Recreation Department is now. By Larissa Kurz

The conversation about the future of programs delivered through the Parks and Recreation department was opened to the public in a Vital Community Conversation, organized through the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation’s project. Moose Jaw was chosen as one of 50 communities to host their own forum, which took place the evening of Mar. 21, and the goal was to engage the public on what matters most to the city in terms of parks and recreation opportunities in the future. One of the things brought to the event was the need for more specific programming for both disabled persons and youth in the city. “One of the ones that we came across was for persons with disability; more programming, more access to Parks and Rec and just in the community itself,” said Steven Hall from Parks and Recreation at the city. Sarah Wiens, a member of the Youth Advisory Committee, agreed with the sentiment when asked what she thought was important to have in Moose Jaw. “I think we need to provide a little bit more for the youth in the community, different options to get them involved, to be able to speak up about what they feel is important,” said Wiens. “There needs to be more opportunities for the youth to be able to express their opinion on what needs to be going on in the city.” Another point made was the need for more accessibility options for programs and centers, specifically for youth

forward to the opportunity to hear from the community directly. “Anytime we have the opportunity to get feedback from the community and from the residents who use the services, it’s very important and something we take seriously. I think the opportunity provided through this program is really going to benefit us,” said Blais. “I’d like to see where the community is at in regards to infrastructure, in regards to programs, in regards to our service delivery, what areas of Parks and Recreation need to be improved and what’s going really well right now. I’m really looking forward to that.” The South-Central Regional Partnership (SCRIP) and the YMCA of Moose Jaw have also been chosen to host similar community conversations, with the event from the YMCA taking place on Mar. 31 at 1pm at the YMCA Centre. Recreation Services City Manager Scott Osmachenko noted that if more people would like to provide feedback, it’s not too late. “If anyone still wants to participate by visiting the Moose Jaw website, they can find the link and still give their input on the 8 questions, which is what we’re kind of discussing tonight,” said Osmachenki. “It’s really informal; whatever individuals basically want to talk about is important. What community means to you is what we’re looking for, so there’s no right or wrong answer so it can be very short or very elaborate.”

Lecture on dementia highlights risk and symptoms Dementia is a progressive degenerative brain disorder with no cure, and the Alzheimer’s Society urges people to be aware of the symptoms. By Larissa Kurz

The ABCs of Dementia lecture at Chez Nous Senior Citizens Home presented a detailed list of warning signs and treatment options for individuals with a dementia-related disease. Donna Wilkinson, a representative from the Alzheimer’s Society of Saskatchewan, delivered the lecture and welcomed any questions about dementia and the finer details of dealing with the infliction. Approximately 19,000 people in Saskatchewan have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or other related dementia, said Wilkinson, and she guessed that three out of four people know someone suffering or affected by the disease. The main points of the lecture focused on the types of dementia and how to understand their symptoms, and subsequently be prepared to treat them. Wilkinson noted that the first step in diagnosing what seems to be dementia symptoms is by testing for other things, as there are things that mimic early symptoms of dementia that are easily treated — such as a B12 deficiency, a urinary tract infection, or complications with medications. Wilkinson noted that the most pertinent risk factor of dementia remains age, but there are other factors that play a large role in the possibility of developing a dementia disease. Women are more likely to develop dementia, which could be due to

Other brain related complications — such as repeated brain injuries, medical complications such as stroke, and down syndrome — can also increase the risk of developing dementia. Wilkinson’s point was to be aware of emerging symptoms and be diligent in

seeking professional help; this is where the ABCs come into play. “Be aware of the ABCs — so what are the changes in people’s abilities, behaviors, and communication — and look at those ten warning signs, of what’s there, and go to your doctor, because there are things that are treatable rather than not treatable,” said Wilkinson. A seeming loss in recent memories and inability to perform familiar tasks, a loss of language or disorientation with time

and space are all common red flags that should be taken note of to help determine when to begin looking for the onset of dementia. Wilkinson encourages those affected by dementia, patients or caregivers, to educate themselves and seek support. “Support groups are a nice place to go because there are people who are going through the same things, are on the same journey; [the group] may be able to provide other suggestions of things that work for them, that might help you depending on where you are in that journey. It’s also a place to know that you are not alone,” said Wilkinson. She also noted that dementia is a disease that presents itself differently in every person. “A big thing with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia is that if you’ve seen one person with Alzheimer’s or dementia, you’ve seen one person; if all of us in this room were to get this disease, it would affect each one of us differently,” said Wilkinson. More information about dementia can be found at the Alzheimer Society website, and Dementia Hotline, which can be reached at 1-800-263-3367, is always available for anyone with questions about the disease.

Not a baaaa-d way to relax Moose Jaw Express Staff

In addition to traditional yoga poses like ‘downward dog’ and ‘dead bug’, the Kinsmen Inclusion Centre saw a new yoga pose last Tuesday: petting goat. The Moose Jaw Families for Change in collaboration with Wilson Farms and Abundant Health Solutions hosted their first goat yoga night at the Inclusion Centre. Fourteen people came to the Inclusion Centre for a yoga class that featured a lot of bleating but adorable goats who jumped, scurried and played around the humans as they stretched. The first goat yoga hosted by Moose Jaw Families was a fundraiser for the Kinsmen Inclusion Centre and the funds will be put towards a new vehicle for transportation to community events and programs. Future goat yoga events will take place at 7 p.m. on March 26, April 2 and April 9 at the Kinsmen Inclusion Centre (335 4th Ave SW). The cost of each class is $20, or $70 for all. Pre-registration is required, and can be done by emailing The event is open to people of all ages and abilities.

Vaping informational tour exposing risks for teens By Larissa Kurz

Consider the Consequences: students at A.E. Peacock Collegiate were asked to do exactly that during an interactive display about the realities and long-term health risks of vaping. The display is currently on tour across Canada, stopping at high schools from coast to coast, to educate teens about the risks and consequences of vaping. The use of e-cigarettes and other vaping devices is on the rise in North America. Statistically, 23% of students in grades 7-12 have tried an e-cigarette, according to a recent survey by Health Canada. The program is meant to address the concerns about vaping with teens; it features a maze display with interactive questions about vaping and the dangers of inhaling chemicals such as the ones in vape liquid. The Consider the Consequences display addresses the Vaping can lead to nicotine addiction, which in teens unknown dangers of vaping and the long-term health can alter brain development. Vice-principal Tana Arnott risks that are possible. says the topic is one that she felt needed to be addressed. “[Vaping] has been a growing thing happening in our to know that everyone from grade 9 girls to grade 12 building and on our school grounds. So I wanted to make boys, everyone in between, they’re all vaping and trying sure that we have all the information that we could, and it and experimenting,” said Arnott. “I really wanted to that we could share it with parents, because parents need make sure we could find a way to educate the students

on that.” The response from students so far has been positive, according to both Arnott and the presenters running the display. “They’re just trying to educate as many youth as possible, because it is on the incline here, and it’s huge in all high schools — not just in Moose Jaw — so it’s a great thing for people to know, that it’s not just here,” said Arnott. Current legislation prohibits the use of flavour additives in cigarettes, which has now been extended to include certain flavours of vape liquid that may be appealing to youth. While the government addresses this potential attraction of vaping to teens, Arnott says there can be other factors that interest teens too. “I’ve heard kids say all the cool kids do it, but in their world, it’s better than smoking. It’s not necessarily cheaper than smoking, but it is a little bit more affordable, in that sense. It’s definitely taken off very, very quickly,” said Arnott. Health Canada encourages teens and parents to educate themselves about vaping, offering information and resources on their website.

Camp-Easy at Buffalo Pound this summer

No set-up or take-down with new, low maintenance campsites at various provincial parks in Saskatchewan. By Larissa Kurz

The Camp-Easy program is expanding this summer to offer convenient camping to more people across the province, and there will be two tents now available at Buffalo Pound for campers to rent. At $65 a night, Camp-Easy sites are a low-effort option for campers who want minimal preparation and minimal clean-up but still want to spend time in the provincial parks. Tent sites, like the ones coming to Buffalo Pound, sleep six people and provide cots, a camp stove, chairs, lanterns and wash bins — campers are responsible for their food, bedding, and cooking supplies. Buffalo Pound is one of eight parks receiving tent spots from the program, including Blackstrap, Good Spirit Lake, Crooked Lake, Echo Valley, and Saskatchewan Landing, among others.

The Camp-Easy program was piloted in 2018 in three provincial parks and a variety of new locations are springing up throughout the province to offer this option. Echo Valley, Good Spirit Lake, Narrow Hills and Meadow Lake will also be offering yurts, an upgraded experience from the tents, and they feature a queen-sized bed, two double futons, table and chairs, and electricity — which means a small fridge, electric heater, outlets, and battery powered lamps, along with all the equipment available at tent sites. More information on the sites can be found at saskparks. com, and reservation of Camp-Easy sites can be done online or through the call centre at 1-855-737-7275 starting April 18.

Tintamarre 2019 raised a ruckus

The Francophone community paraded loud and proud through downtown Moose Jaw in celebration, dancing along to French music, noisemakers, and cheering ecstatically. Larissa Kurz

An impressive group decked out in color marched down Main Street, making noise and celebrating Tintamarre with the Association Communautaire Fransaskoise de Moose Jaw (ACF Moose Jaw). The parade started off in the Crescent Park amphitheater, before making its way down Main Street towards the police station, where the ceremonial raising of the Fransaskoise flag took place. Tintamarre is an Acadian tradition; the event is meant to demonstrate the life and solidarity of the francophone and bilingual community. Marching in bright colors and making noise lets everyone know that the francophone community is thriving, and gives francophones and bilingual speakers a chance to see each other as a whole community. Students from École Ducharme, Central Collegiate, St. Margaret’s Elementary and Palliser Heights marched with the group, an inclusion that Chantal Amstead, di-

Mayor assures residents procedures being followed in noise complaint issue City administration working on report regarding mixed-use commercial and residential districts and potential issues for neighbouring properties Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

The ongoing controversy surrounding a dispute between a business owner and surrounding residents has reached the point that Moose Jaw Mayor Fraser Tolmie has weighed into assure citizens the proper procedures are being followed. The issue comes out of a noise complaint directed toward a local establishment, where residents allege a constant stream of loud music and pounding bass has made their lives unpleasant. Coun. Dawn Luhning brought forward a notice of motion during the Mar. 11 meeting of city council “that City Administration prepare a report to Executive

Committee to re-evaluate the issuance of a Business License for areas of the City where mixed use in the Commercial District and others could be an issue for neighbouring properties.” Tolmie pointed out in a press release that the matter is currently going through the legal system, but has exposed the fact “that we do not have a current bylaw that addresses activity in mixed use (business/ residential) buildings”. With the city’s 2017 Downtown Local Area Plan bringing the potential for more residential development in the commercial district, Tolmie said the need for a

bylaw to address such issues is more pertinent than ever. “For our City to grow, and for business owners and residents to co-exist comfortably and with peace of mind, it’s our job to ensure we have clearly defined guidelines in place,” Tolmie said. “We look forward to City Administration’s report on the proper way to move forward in the best interests of the City of Moose Jaw.” The report and any potential action will be brought forward to an executive meeting in the near future, with council to finalize any decisions made shortly after.

Hollywood Gala in Moose Jaw had Sequins to Rival the Oscars By Larissa Kurz

Skaters of all ages took to the ice with their most impressive skills at Mosaic Place on Mar. 17 and proved their talents true. The theme was Hollywood Gala, and the glitz and glitter transformed the ice into an awards show to honor the hard work and dedication of the skaters. Each category brought catchy popular tunes that celebrated the history and future of film and, paired with awards handed out to the club’s skaters, also celebrated the past year the Moose Jaw Skating Club has had leading up to the showcase. The awards given out to skaters highlighted special acknowledgements in the club, including Epic Fall to Justene Aitken, Breakthrough Year to Brecon Swalm, Star Skater of the Year to Shayden Manz, the Rising Star Award to Lily Gilroy, and CanSkater of the Year to Bryar Molde.

Moose Jaw’s Emily Rowe has proved she might have a future in horse riding. She and her mount R Taxes Wrong are coming off a stellar season, both provincially and nationally, after winning numerous honours at the Saskatchewan Horse Federation provincial awards ceremony to go along with an amazing series of performances at the Canadian National Appaloosa Show that saw her come home with a host of top finishes. Not bad for a 13-year-old rider working with a soon-to-be 10-year-old horse, and a solid reward for the hours spent working with Taxi leading up to the events. “We’re never really expecting anything because a lot of the kids have expensive horses, where she just got one when he was young and she just kind of did the work herself,” said Emily’s mom Melissa Rowe. “It’s kind of cool to see her picking up her dreams and doing what she wants. She’s pretty focussed, and it’s fun to see her and Taxi doing so well.” At the recent Sask. Horse Federation awards, Rowe won the provincial Western riding junior award to go along with the All-Around champion for the junior division. That was only the capper on what was a breakthrough performance in Western riding at the CNAS nationals – Rowe and Taxi landed in first place in the Youth Western

Moose Jaw’s Emily Rowe put together an impressive year in recent horse riding competitions. Riding 18-and-under class to go along with top spot in the Youth Western Showmanship 13-and-under division, in addition to being named the reserve national champion in Open Ranch Trail. That’s on top of numerous top three finishes in other events ranging from Hunter and Trail

riding to barrel racing. Rowe only recently took up Western riding, having spent about a year working with Taxi to prepare for competition. The results have even shown themselves on the world stage, as Rowe is tied for fourth in the world-wide Western rankings based on her point totals from last summer. “It’s one of the more difficult classes because you’re asking horses to do flying lead changes and things like that,” Rowe said. “It’s a pretty intense class, so it’s great to see they’ve been able to pick up on it so quickly.” The key now will be to prepare for another season and ideally have a shot at travelling to the world championships in Texas in the future. To that end, sponsors would be more than welcome to help out with the myriad of expenses in the competition. “She just wants to keep working towards saving money for worlds, especially when she’s at the top of her age group,” Rowe said. “Vantage Trailer in Alberta took her on as an ambassador last year, but it was only a single year program, so any new sponsors would definitely be a help.” The competition schedule gets underway in earnest in March and runs through early October.

Several Warriors receive league awards and honours Scott Hellings

Several Moose Jaw Warriors have had excellent seasons on the ice, and these individual efforts have not gone unnoticed.

Three members of the team picked up individual awards: • Josh Brook, who has been selected as the Eastern Conference’s Top Defenceman. • Brayden Tracey has been named Eastern Conference Rookie of the Year. He earned an impressive 36 goals and 45 assists for 81 points in 66 games this season. • Justin Almeida was named the Eastern Conference’s Most Sportsmanlike Player. He had 33 goals and 78 assists for 111 points in 64 games, while picking up just 14 minutes in penalties.

WHL Conference Awards are voted upon by all WHL general managers and head coaches. All individual WHL Conference Award winners will be eligible for the overall WHL Awards at the 2019 WHL Awards luncheon in Red Deer, Alta., on Wednesday, May 1. The Western Hockey League has also announced the Eastern and Western Conference All-Star teams for the 2018-19 season. Three Warriors have been honoured. On the Eastern Conference First All-Star

team is defenceman Josh Brook and forward Tristin Langan. Brook scored 16 goals and 59 assists for 75 points in 59 games. Langan led the team with 53 goals and 60 assists for 113 points in 67 games. Defenceman Jett Woo was named to the Second All-Star team. Woo netted 12 goals and 54 assists for 66 points in 62 games. The WHL Conference All-Stars are voted upon by WHL General Managers.

Cyclones win Hoopla championship

Central dominates from start to finish in final against Weyburn to claim first gold medal since 2001 Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Central Cyclones not only had one of the best high school boys basketball seasons in the city’s history, they came into the Hoopla 4A boys tournament playing some of their best games of the season. That showed in the semifinal, a commanding 88-62 victory over North Battleford John Paul II. And it showed in the championship final against the Weyburn Eagles. The Cyclones roared out to a 20-point lead before the second quarter was even half over, led 47-31 at halftime and never looked back on their way to a 98-59 victory at Centennial Collegiate in Saskatoon. “It’s just awesome,” said Central head coach Ryan Boughen. “Our kids played so well and we’re so excited for them; it’s just a fitting way for it to end. It’s super exciting. “It was a good game at the start; we felt we had an advantage inside with Jaxson Brownell so we tried to get the ball in to him and that went well for us. Then we were able to get some stops and it just kept on going the way we wanted it to.” That meant when Brownell wasn’t dominating the paint, the outside shooters were bringing the rain. Combine that with their hyper-aggressive defensive game and a slew of stops in the early going, the writing was on the wall.

The Central Cyclones are the 2019 4A boys provincial high school basketball champions.

“As a coach, you’re always searching for a perfect game, and we thought the game before we could have played a little better in the second half.” Boughen said. “But today I couldn’t be happier with the way it ended and how the guys played from start to finish. If that’s the definition of perfect, then for sure, that’s a perfect game.” Brownell led all scorers with 20 points. His presence was the perfect augmentation to Central’s outside game all season, led by the likes of free-shooting Grade 12 guards Kyle Boughen and Riley Seaborn. Fellow seniors Fharis Ebet, Ethan

Johnson, Hardil Khubber and Crozier Holmes all had standout games of their own at different times. “They’re incredible,” Boughen said of his Grade 12 core. “Some of these kids on different teams are the star of that team and score 30 points a game. With our team, they’re scoring 15 points, and there’s a whole bunch of them scoring 15 points. All year we played like that and I think that was the big difference for us. “There’s seven of them graduating and they’re seven hard kids to replace because they are such good players. But they’ve really set the tone and tempo

for the next kids coming up and what it means to be a teammate, to be unselfish and share the ball.” The championship is the first for the Cyclones boys team since 2001, when a similar hot-shooting squad led by future university standout Kyle Grant and the inside presence of Chad Leugner won the title at home in Moose Jaw. “That year was probably one of the best teams I’ve every coached and that year, those kids beat Knoll and Knoll went on to win the 5A championship,” Boughen said. “This year, I said to these guys, ‘you’re better, but you have to win this game’. This year we beat both Leboldus and Holy Cross, who are playing in the 5A final, so this was a pretty legit squad….They’re just a great group of kids and they played so well, I couldn’t be prouder.” **** The Peacock Toilers might not have been playing for gold in the 4A girls division, but they’re coming home with a medal just the same. Grade 12 guard Piper Ingalls made sure that would be the case. In her final contest as the Toilers’ offensive leader, Ingalls put up 38 points as Peacock defeated Notre Dame 70-53 in the bronze medal game. The Toilers led 31-21 at half.

Pee Wee Mavericks win South Division

Moose Jaw takes 4-1 and 8-1 wins over Weyburn to advance to provincial final Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

After going through an epic battle in their Sask. Female Hockey League Pee Wee South Division semifinals with the Southwest Cyclones, the Moose Jaw Mavericks apparently wanted no part of close games with a championship on the line. The Mavericks wasted little time in their South Division final against the Weyburn Angels over the weekend, rolling to a 4-1 victory in Game 1 on Saturday in Weyburn night followed by an 8-1 win in Game 2 Sunday morning at Red Knight Arena. The back-to-back wins gave Moose Jaw a 2-0 victory in the best-of-three series. They’ll now advance to the SFHL provincial final against either the Western Prairie Stars or Northwest, with that series being played next weekend.

nal, the Mavericks turned the deciding contest of the series into a rout early in the game. Jesse Mielke scored two goals two minutes apart midway through the first

period and added two more markers in the final 1:55 of the second as the Mavericks built a 7-0 lead on their way to the commanding win. Brooklyn Nimegeers added three goals

for Moose Jaw, whose quick-strike offence also picked up power play goals only 11 seconds apart in the second period, courtesy of Ashley Breitkreuz at 5:06 and Nimegeers at 4:55. Weyburn scored their lone goal with 29 seconds left in the game. Schay Camphaug went the distance in net. Mavericks 4, Weyburn 1 Mielke scored the game-winning goal a minute into the second period and added an insurance marker in the final minute as the Mavericks overcame an early deficit to win Game 1 in Weyburn. Nimegeers and Brooklyn Hrynkiw also scored for Moose Jaw, who found themselves tied 1-1 after the first and leading 3-1 through two. Nimegeers and Breitkreuz added two assists each. Camphaug was the winning netminder.

Canada’s Andreescu joins tennis elite

By Bruce Penton Virtually out of nowhere, Canada has a new sports sensation. Only a few people outside of her Romanian family and close friends had heard of tennis player Bianca Andreescu before she made it to the final of the Auckland Open in New Zealand in January, showing up on the sports world’s radar with wins over Venus Williams and Caroline Wozniacki along the way. Two months later, the 18-year-old from Mississauga

was thrust into a mini spotlight in the world of pro tennis and given a berth in the main draw at the BNP Paribas championship in the Palm Springs community of Indian Wells, the closest thing to a major that’s not a major as there is in professional tennis. It was a true Cinderella story. Win after win after win put her into the final against the seventh-seeded and world No. 4 Angelique Kerber of Germany, a three-time Grand-Slam winner and overwhelming favourite. But the clock didn’t strike midnight before Andreescu scored a 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 win over Kerber, who has $28.1 million in career earnings, for the first Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) victory ever by a Canadian. She wore the proverbial gown right into the post-match press conference, where she caused a bit of a scene by asking if she could use “the F word” before being told no, of course not, and proceeding to tell the world that it was “crazy,” but she was the “effing champion of Indian Wells.” OK, so the prudes in the crowd may not

Making the final in Auckland and winning at Indian Wells has led to a lofty world ranking of 24th. She is one of a strong group of Canadians, including Denis Shapovalov, Félix Auger-Aliassime, Vasek Pospisil and Eugenie Bouchard who are turning Canada into a world minipower in the sport.

Warriors lose first two games of playoff series with Blades Tribe fall 3-2 in overtime in Game 1, drop 3-1 decision in Game 2 in Saskatoon Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Warriors might be down two games in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference quarter-final series with the Saskatoon Blades, but that’s not to say their confidence is shaken in any way, shape or form. The Tribe is looking forward to getting things on home ice and seeing what they can do. The Warriors dropped a 3-2 decision in overtime in Game 1 in Saskatoon on Friday and followed with a 3-1 loss in Game 2 Saturday, meaning the Tribe will need to take at least four of the remaining five games in the series if they’re to advance beyond the first round of the playoffs. “We’re close, it’s just a matter of us not having played our game to the best of our abilities yet,” said Warriors head coach Tim Hunter. “We’ve had good goaltending and we gave up too many chances after allowing their first power play goal in Game 1. We didn’t play our game; we stood around and watched a lot… they’ve earned one goal so far where they’ve really dug in and competed; everything else they’ve had has been fortuitous or somewhat lucky goals. So we’re confident once we play our game and the way we can we’ll come out on top.” Blades 3, Warriors 1 The Blades took advantage of a pair of Warriors miscues and bad breaks to pick up a pair of goals on their way to winning Game 2 of the series. After a scoreless first period, the Warriors had their share of chances in the early moments of the second, first when Josh Brook had a glorious shot from in close on Blades goaltender Nolan Maier and seconds later when Luke Ormsby broke in on the wing and had an open

shot but was also stopped. Those and other missed opportunities would prove to be costly, as the Blades would make the most of two of theirs. Max Gerlach gave the Blades a 1-0 lead midway through the second period; the Warriors were caught on a line-change, resulting in a jailbreak that saw three Blades go in all alone on Adam Evanoff. Gerlach took the shot and beat Evanoff to the glove side. Carson Denomie got that one back for the Warriors five minutes into the third, taking a feed in the slot from Tristin Langan on the power play and rifling a shot high over Maier’s glove. Gerlach then gave the Blades back the lead on another unlucky turn of events, as a shot wide of the net went off the boards and straight to the Saskatoon sniper at the side of the net, giving him

an easy tap in. The Warriors were 1-for-3 on the power play, the Blades 0-for-2. Evanoff made 28 saves in goal for the Warriors, Maier stopped 22 for Saskatoon. Blades 3, Warriors 2 Chase Wouters scored at 3:23 of overtime to cap a two-goal comeback by the Blades as they took a heart-stopping win in Game 1. It was a bad break that did the Warriors in: Wouters’ game-winning goal appeared to be a hard-angle shot that was going to be an easy and harmless stop for goaltender Brodan Salmond. Instead, it slipped between Salmond and the short-side post, dropping into the net for the overtime winner. Kaeden Taphorn opened scoring at the

3:03 mark when he picked up a rebound off a shot by Luke Ormsby in front of the net and fired a quick shot home under the outstretched pad of Nolan Maier. The Warriors were without standout rookie Brayden Tracey, who was a game-time decision and took warm-ups before deciding to sit Game 1 out. Eric Alarie, the Warriors first-round pick in the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft, took Tracey’s place in the line-up. Alarie filled the role, scoring his first WHL goal just over four minutes into the second period, giving the Warriors their 2-0 lead. It was an extension of his season with Rink Hockey Academy out of Winnipeg, where he scored 17 goals and 49 points in 27 games. Max Gerlach got the Blades on the board with a power play goal at the 7:50 mark of the second period, teeing up a shot from the left faceoff dot that beat a screened Brodan Salmond. The Warriors picked up their only power play of the game with 6:45 remaining in the first period and managed to hit a pair of goalposts but were unable to score. Moose Jaw’s penalty kill ended up far busier from the second period on, as the Tribe killed three straight Blades man advantages while battling to stay in the game. The edge wouldn’t last. Riley McKay scored at 11:48 during a scramble at the side of the net, tying things up at 2-2 and setting the stage for Wouters in OT. Salmond made 35 saves in taking the loss while Maier was far less busy, stopping 23 shots including only two in the third period. Games 3 and 4 of the series are Mar. 26 and 27 at Mosaic Place. Game times are 7 p.m.

Langan named Warriors’ Player of the Year

Ormsby wins Mark MacKay Hustle Award, Salmond and Evanoff named Cody Smuk Unsung Heroes during Yara Awards Night Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

When the Moose Jaw Warriors held their annual Yara Awards night prior to their final game of the regular season, Tristin Langan almost wore a permanent path on the ice, skating a number of times from the bench to the awards presentation area. The Tribe overager and league scoring title contender picked up four major awards during the ceremony, including the most coveted of all, as the Warriors’ Player of the Year. “It’s a special feeling to get Player of the Year, especially with all the great guys on the team who could have won it, but I couldn’t have done it without my linemates and teammates,” Langan said shortly after his three-point night gave him 53 goals and 113 points on the season, briefly moving him into a tie for the Western Hockey League scoring lead. “They’re a great bunch of guys and they work hard as a team, and especially my linemates Justin Almeida and Brayden Tracey; I’ve played with them all year and I couldn’t have done it without them.” Given how close Langan and Almeida were in the scoring race – Almeida would finish with 33 goals and 111 points – the duo shared the Top Scorer Award, while Langan also picked up the Three-Stars Award and won the Fan’s Choice Award. Almeida picked up a second honour, being named the

Rookie defenceman Daemon Hunt’s hard work in the classroom at Vanier Collegiate saw him pick up the team’s

Scholastic Player of the Year award, and the 16-year-old rearguard was also honoured for his work on the ice as the teams Most Improved Player. Luke Ormsby received one of the teams’ most prestigious honours, picking up the Mark MacKay Hustle Award for his night-to-night, shift-to-shift effort on the ice. The goaltending duo of Brodan Salmond and Adam Evanoff won the Cody Smuk Unsung Hero Award after their effort in the crease game in and game out gave the Tribe a chance to win every night. Warriors second-year forward Tate Popple was honoured for his work off the ice with various charitable organizations with the team’s Humanitarian Award. When it came to the Top Defenceman and Top Rookie awards, neither carried much controversy. Montreal Canadiens top prospect and team captain Josh Brook was the team’s top rearguard, scoring 16 goals and 75 points with a plus-24 rating to lead all defencemen in scoring after catching Saskatoon’s Dawson Davidson on the final weekend of the season. High scoring forward Brayden Tracey claimed Rookie of the Year honours after racking up 36 goals and 81 points to lead all first-year players in WHL scoring. The totals, for the best for the Warriors, date back to the 1998-99 season when Jamie Lundmark put up 40 goals and 91 points.

Moose Jaw powerlifters set national records at Canadian championship Gold medals abound for members of Unparalleled Performance at CPU nationals Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw athletes with Unparalleled Performance put together a host of record-breaking performances at the Canadian Powerlifting Union national championships in Ottawa recently. With those records came a near-equal number of gold medals. Perennial world championship competitor Rhaea Stinn broke a national record in her 84-kilogram equipped division with a lift of 185 kg in the bench press and, combined with her 235-kg squat and 210-kg deadlift, set a new Canadian record for overall total at 630.0 kg. Stinn, in the unequipped bench press only competition, competing in the 72-kg class against five other lifters put together a press of 120.5 kg to win by 18 kilograms and set a new national mark. Her performance in the equipped bench press was even more dominant, with her lift of 190.0

Mava Brydges

kg setting a new national record and winning by more than 62 kilograms. Kaylee Maruska showed she has a bright future in the sport after setting a slew of records in her sub-junior 72-kg weight class. Maruska set a new mark of 93 kg in the bench and 162.5 kg in the deadlift to go along with a national record of 415.5 kg in the total. In the unequipped division, Maruska set a national bench press record of 73.0 kg, setting the mark on her final lift. She also claimed gold in the class with a 328-kg total. Moose Jaw powerlifting coach and longtime national standout Ryan Stinn put on a show in the 120-plus kilogram equipped class, clearing 385 kg in the squat, 275 kg in bench press and 325 kg in the deadlift for a 985.0 total and the gold medal. His total was the third highest for the entire meet.

Ryan Stinn Stinn also competed in the open equipped bench press competition and finished second behind a familiar face – former training partner and longtime Moose Jaw standout Ryan Fowler, who now lives in Weyburn. He won gold with a lift of 250 kg. Stinn attempted and made only one lift of 150 kg and settled for silver. Aaron Ziffle put together a second-place finish in the open equipped 93-kg class, squatting 315 kg, benching 227.5 kg and deadlifting 260.0 kg for an 802.5-kg total. He missed gold by a mere 20 kilograms. Competing in Master 1 equipped division, Shantelle Szuch set a national record in her 63-kg weight class with a 180.5-kg squat. She went on to bench 97.5 kg and deadlift 172.5 kg for a 450.5-kg total, also a new Canadian mark and good enough for the gold medal. Mava Brydges competed in the Master 3 unequipped class and like her teammates

put together a record-breaking showing, setting a new bench press Canadian record of 63.0 kg. That combined with her 97.5-kg squat and 112.5-kg deadlift was good enough for a 273-kg total and the gold medal. Provincial records were also set with the six local competitors breaking a total of 23 Saskatchewan marks during the weekend.

Nobody dancing for appearance of orange blossom wheat midge By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express

Called the most serious insect pest on wheat in Western Canada, the orange blossom wheat midge costs Saskatchewan farmers $130 million a year. Forty years of research into control of the spreading pest has not found better control than midge-tolerant varieties and/or chemicals but a federal researcher says careful spraying can reduce costs and kill midge populations. Realizing these benefits requires knowing the midge life cycle, Dr. Tyler Wist, chief entomologist at the Saskatoon federal research centre, told a Sask. Wheat session in Moose Jaw. The adult insect crawls out of the ground in early July and up the plants at wheat blossom time, laying eggs that damage kernels. When August rainstorms arrive, the hatched pupae fall to the ground, crawl

Tyler Wist

in, build a cocoon and winterover. “They are like a ticking time bomb that can stay in the field 12 to 13 years if conditions to emerge aren’t right,� Wist said. Natural parasites can control the wheat

midge. If producers spray for midge “spray as early as you can to preserve the field heroes.� The parasitoids — little wasps — will keep wheat midge populations down if not killed by chemicals. The tiny wasps lay eggs in the midge eggs. “Don’t spray late. They come out four to five days after midge come out.� The parasitoids can kill 30 per cent to 40 per cent of the midge population in the following year and saved over $200 million in the 1990s, said Wist. Last year’s wheat crop will probably be canola this year and he cautioned timing of spray application can kill the wasps in canola. Late spraying can also kill four varieties of ground beetles that eat midge larvae.

Midge tolerant wheat was developed from a wheat gene that causes the first stage of larvae to die. Tolerant wheat is a blend of 90 per cent tolerant and 10 per cent susceptible wheat varieties to starve virulent midge. But saving seed more than two years loses the susceptible blend. “If the resistance trait is lost, there is no Plan B.� One-third of Prairie wheat in 2015 was midge tolerant. Ongoing investigations into midge control include blowing in a deterrent smell, a plant variety that attacks eggs and hairy wheat which keeps midge away. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Simplified payment structure for foster families With the announcement of this year’s Saskatchewan budget on March 20th, foster families receive basic maintenance payments (varying from $689.99 to $1051.00 and a skill development fee of $125.00-per child, per month) after completing required training and one year of service. The new payment structure that will take effect in the Fall of 2019 will replace those two fees so that Foster families will receive basic maintenance payments as before, plus $500.00 per month, per child once they complete the required training. Information sessions will be held in communities across the province and foster families are encouraged to attend. Most foster families will see an increase in their monthly payments under the new structure said Executive Director of the SFFA Deb Davies. This new system is expected to be more consistent and recognizes the additional skills and training many foster parents undertake to ensure they can deliver the best

care possible for children. “It will also result in a larger pool of foster parents with specialized training in FASD, trauma, First Aid and CPR,� said Davies. “We will also continue to work closely with the Ministry to review compensation for homes that provide specialized care; families who care for children with complex medical needs and the social workers who work with them, have some significant administrative challenges and we are working to simplify that process.�

Improved farm land drainage gets $5 million By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express AGRIMART


The Saskatchewan Government has put $5 million into improved land

drainage in the province. The money goes to the Saskatchewan Conservation and Development Association (SCDA) to assist with the provincial water management strategy. The province has promised to crack down on illegal drainage and has taken a district approach to the issue with local conservation districts or water boards forming their own plan for approval after consulting with proper-

ty owners. The 96 conservation districts and 13 water association boards control 4.5 million acres of land — less than half the total farmed land. So far in the 2018-19 year the new approach has brought 130,000 acres into compliance with regulations – an increase five times the 2014-15 year. The funding was announced at the mid-term convention

Unfavourable wheat price outlook presented to producers

By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express Farmers won’t offset losses AGRIMART from reduced canola prices EXPRESS by planting wheat. That was the inference from grain trader Marlena Boersch’s wheat market outlook to a Sask. Wheat workshop in Moose Jaw The math is simple. Global wheat production is estimated to increase by three per cent while consumption will only increase one per cent, she said. The good news: global wheat stocks fell nine million tonnes, or three per cent, last year with carryover in top exporting countries falling by 14 million tonnes. Wheat price outlook will be impacted by any bad weather conditions and the current U.S./China trade talks. “We would hold new crop sales for now because we don’t know what is happening to China and the U.S.,� said the Winnipeg-based analyst. She has concerns that lower global growth will reduce the ability to purchase wheat in developing countries. “Consumers in those countries spend a big chunk of their income on food. Slow growth cuts into purchasing power.� Over the long-term, Boersch suggested Canadian wheat faces stiffer competition from Russia and the Ukraine and improved infrastructure. “In 1976 Canada was one of the lowest cost producers of wheat. Land prices were low. That is no longer the case.� Canada is now a high cost wheat producer. Lower costs in Russia, Kazakhstan and Ukraine allow them to play with margins when selling wheat. During the last 15 years, Russia increased export capacity nine-fold and plans to add more capacity. Brazil is talking with four grain companies to let them take over the main grain route to port. China has invested $42 billion on railway transport through Kazakhstan for the Silk Road from Shanghai to Dusseldorf, Germany. “They are designing cheap infrastructure. We can’t even build a pipeline.� Our wheat buyers, Iran and Pakistan, are talking with Russia about co-operation on exports, she said. Increased Canadian port capacity will help but “what is always missing is the railways to feed them. We have to get a handle on that. “We’ve got to be able to get our grain to the market when the market is there. “The world around us is changing so much more rapidly than it has in the last 35 years.� Five years ago, Saudi Arabia bought 440,000 tonnes of Canadian wheat. This year: none due to a human rights issue tweet by External Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland “I like Chrystia Freeland but I think you shouldn’t over tweet.� Ron Walter can be reached at

Tricia Lot Williford says: “The only way to conquer youth entitlement is one house at a time . . . and perhaps one mom at a time.� Parenting isn’t for the faint of heart. It is, in my opinion, the hardest job in the world; however, it is also the most rewarding knowing that we have great influence in the generations to come. As parents, we have a responsibility to our children, to raise them up to contribute to society, to be a living example of empathy for the betterment of their community, all the while building on a solid work ethic and a sense of personal responsibility for themselves, their family and beyond. Taking responsibility first as a parent is a challenge in itself; but I’ve also realized, from my own experience, that it is also fulfilling and satisfying to take that vested interest and follow through with my commitments. Teaching responsibility is challenging and it requires responsibility on our part to live it before our children! Enforcing consequences when not followed through is also a tough job but you will see growth and reward if you do not give up. Find someone, whether it is a spouse or a friend, who will support you as you make these changes. Delayed gratification is another great life lesson to learn. Teaching our children that it’s okay to wait; it’s okay not to have something immediately when they want it is good. Anticipation for something that has been saved for is a gift. Teaching our children that they do not need to have the latest and greatest of toys, clothes, electronics or what have you helps not only with training them to be more grateful for things but is easier on your check book as well. Avoid excess. This leads to unrealistic expectations. Give them two gifts: First, let them learn to problem solve; Second, let them contribute to the family chores. These are closely related. As tempting as it is to swoop in and do things for your kids, doing so puts them on the fast track to learned helplessness. This coupled with not having to contribute to family chores translates into something ugly: The very real belief that they are entitled to people doing things for them in childhood and adulthood. And that is not cute at any age. Do less for your kids. Both of our girls started doing their own laundry in Grade 6. Hubby has taught Big Sweet Pea how to change oil and tires, detail vehicles, simple vehicle maintenance such as changing brakes or burned out headlights/taillights. Our girls have both learned how to use a hammer, an electric drill, apply drywall mud, paint, vacuum, and even drive a horse. Don’t hesitate to train your children in adult jobs. Yes, they will make mistakes. Yes, it will take time and consistency on our part but the rewards of seeing your children empowered to accomplish challenging tasks are really worth it. American writer Robert Heinlein suggests, “Don’t handicap your children by making their lives easy.� The reality is kids aren’t born feeling entitled or spoiled. They learn it from well-intentioned parents who don’t realize they’re teaching it by giving in to demands. As we take inventory of our lives, we can begin to make the necessary changes for success in our own lives, homes and beyond. Our children can grow up to be appreciative, knowledgeable, respectful, honest, and compassionate contributors in their homes and society. Let’s change the world one child at a time.

Rev. Douglas Ward Hallman It is with great sadness that the family of Rev. Douglas Ward Hallman announce his passing on February 23, 2019 at the age of 70 years, in Tisdale, Saskatchewan. A funeral service was held in his honor on March 4, 2019 in St. Paul’s United Church, Tisdale, Saskatchewan. It is at this time that we, the family, would like to express our sincerest gratitude to everyone who lent a helpful hand, including giving and serving food, sending flowers, arranging the front of the church, and providing truly wonderful music. As well, thanks for each kind gesture - a word in Doug’s honour, a hug, a card, an email, a phone call, or a listening ear. Your kindness was very much appreciated and will never be forgotten.

Dance for Hunger brings in close to a ton of food for Moose Jaw and District Food Bank

Annual Dance Images by B.J. event once again fills shelves for local charitable organization Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw and District Food Bank will find their shelves about a ton fuller – literally -- after the most recent edition of the Dance for Hunger show at Peacock on Sunday night. The annual event, which also acts as a season kick-off for Dance Images by B.J., is one of the major spring donation events for the local charity and once again saw an impressive display of non-perishable food items donated by dancers and their families as well as patrons of the event. “We’re so amazed at all the support we receive and it’s such an important way of giving back to the community,” said event organizer and Dance Images coach Performers with Dance Images by BJ show off their massive haul of donations headed for the Moose Jaw and District Food Bank.

Senior tap competitor Emily Pippus brought her fast feet to the Dance for Hunger stage.

Shauna Bzdel. “All of our families are fortunate that we have disposable income and are able to provide our dancers with a dance education, where families that are in need of the food bank are families that don’t have those opportunities available to them. “So it’s always amazing when we have support of our studio families and are able to give back to such an important organization in the community.” The premise for Dance for Hunger isn’t

complicated but it is remarkable how much they bring in every year. As dancers arrive for group rehearsals on Saturday and Sunday, they bring donations for the food bank and have their names entered for prizes from the studio. On the night of the show, patrons also bring food items, further stocking the massive table of goods nearly to the breaking point. And for good reason – the total donation amount has annually neared the 2,000-pound plus mark. A literal ton of

food. “There is a lot; it’s really exciting,” Bzdel said. “We always try to aim high, so we’re hoping we near that mark again and will be able to give back to lots of families who need it.” Of course, there’s also dancing involved. Members of the various groups take to the stage throughout the evening to show off their hard work during the off-season, some of them for the first time. “This is an opportunity for all of our solos, duos and trio dancers, as well as our Acro to perform on the stage because in just a couple of weeks we’re going into our competition season,” Bzdel said. “You can tell everybody is ready to hit the stage and head into our season with lots of confidence and excitement.”

Butterfly Quilt to be a centre-piece of Evening of Love, Hope, Faith and Resilience fundraiser Massive undertaking involving hours upon hours of work, quilt to be donated to Heartland Hospice Moose Jaw Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

A quilt more than 100 inches long and 70 inches wide is going to take a lot of time and hands to bring together. But when it’s a labour of love directed toward Heartland Hospice Moose Jaw, all the time and dedication to the project is more than worth it. The butterfly-emblazoned quilt – known simply as the Butterfly Quilt – will be a centerpiece donation during the Evening of Love, Hope, Faith and Resilience evening taking place Mar. 28 at the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre. The project was designed and overseen by local quilt-maker Colleen Oshowy, who was quick to point out that many people put plenty of hours into making the massive covering come to fruition. “Oh gosh, that would be hard to say,” she said when asked about the overall time commitment. “The butterflies are a lot of small pieces and a lot of time went into picking the fabrics and co-ordinating it all, so it was a winter project, a lot of work, hours and hours. And I think it’s all worth it when you know where it’s going.” Among the many workers who dedicated their time were Shelly Wicks of Half Yard Quilting Studio, who helped with the fabric choices for the quilt, while Jeanne Large worked with Oshowy on designing the background for the butterflies and worked on stitching the binding. Wendy Findlay of Long Arm Custom Quilting also received special mention for what Oshowy called her ‘stunning’ work on the stitching of the quilt itself, performing most of the work in free motion without a quilting machine. Then there was Lana Lalonde of Vibe Graphics, who designed a special label for the back of the quilt detailing the work that went into the venture. Della Ferguson, Heartland Hospice board member and one of the evening’s organizers, also put many hours into various aspects of the quilt. The entire project is a labour of love for Oshowy for a very good reason – she’s dedicating the quilt in the name

Working on the back of the Butterfly Quilt is almost as time consuming as working on the front… of her sister, Cindy Coutts, who passed away in palliative care in the hospital before she could arrive at hospice. Her brother in law, Gary Nordal, spend the final weeks of his life in hospice before also passing due to cancer. “My sister was only 54 and my brother in law was 64, so this is really near and dear to my heart and I feel strongly that everyone deserves a proper covering and proper draping for their final journey,” Oshowy said. That’s where the quilt’s practical use comes into play: after an individual dies, Heartland Hospice will use the Butterfly Quilt to drape over the person as they’re transported to the waiting funeral car. “It’s a way of showing respect and dignity for their last journey,” Oshowy said. Tickets are currently available for the Evening of Love, Hope, Faith and Resilience fundraiser, with close to 100 already sold at $25 each. The event, which will take place in the Mae Wilson Theatre, will feature special guests Greg and Leone Ottenbreit, who will offer their inspiring tale of profound love, undying hope and deep faith that enabled them to find the resilience to deal with some of
