While SaskPower consulted with the public about their proposed natural gas power plant, the City of Moose Jaw and Associated Engineering in Saskatoon sought feedback on the concept plan of the Southeast Industrial Park. “It’s been an excellent turnout which is really good to see. Overall people are very excited about the potential,” said Jim Dixon, manager of economic development for the City of Moose Jaw. “Moose Jaw hasn’t really seen an industrial park development like this. The concept plan is coming to the final stages and then the design work will happen. “The fact that we have a major project here with SaskPower, it’s an amazing opportunity for our city and really our region.” The proposed industrial park will be located south of the Moose Jaw River and east of the No. 2 Highway.

Three new Aboriginal languages being offered in high schools next fall Moose Jaw Express Staff

High school students in Saskatchewan will have the opportunity to learn more First Nations languages beginning next fall. Courses in Dene, Nakawe and Michif at the 10, 20 and 30 level will expand learning opportunities for students beginning in the 2019-20 school year. These new languages are in addition to the Cree course already being offered. The three new languages were previously available through locally developed courses to meet the needs of students. This initiative aligns with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission calls to action and supports the province’s joint task force recommendations. These recommendations identified the importance of Aboriginal languages and the role they play in preserving cultural traditions, knowledge and history. “Reconciliation is about recognizing past wrongs, mak-

Horse industry churns out millions in Sask. By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express


EXPRESS The annual impact of the horse industry in Saskatchewan amounts to $723 million, according to a study by Equestrian Canada. “That’s a good reminder while horse industry and horse sport may not have the footprint grain production or beef production does, significant dollars are still being spent in the province,� said Audrey Price, executive-director of the Saskatchewan Horse Federation (SHF). “We need to not lose sight of that,� she sold the Moose Jaw Exhibition Company

With 115,000 horses, supporting 600 full-time jobs, and the equivalent of 9,700 unpaid jobs, the industry spends $426 million annually on things like veterinary care, feed, bedding, grooming and equipment. Another $297 million is spent on travel and accommodation to shows. “The horse federation’s role is to make sure that kind of contribution can continue.� In Canada, the study showed 250,000 owners had 950,000 horses supporting 200,000 jobs with 2.8 million people attending horse events. While the SHF is recognized by Sask.

Local paramedic seeing musical tribute have impact in unexpected ways Matthew Gourlie

Nicholas Hennink was trying to support his fellow first responders and find an outlet for his own recovery when he began writing and recording songs with Jared Robinson. When he asked if he could have imagined what it has grown into, the Moose Jaw and District EMS advanced care paramedic said: “not this.� “We just wanted to support the first responders with the music that we’re doing,� Hennink said. “We wanted to do something different. It’s just a platform out there reaching out to them. A lot has come from it and a lot more than we expected, so I’m blessed.� On March 23 and 24, Hennink’s song “Warriors� was performed by the United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own�. The song opened two performances at ‘We Stand Ready: A Tribute to the Modern American Soldier’, a musical tribute to the post-9/11 American soldier. The lyrics to the chorus were changed with Hennink’s permission and the song was sung twice at Conmy Hall just outside Arlington National Cemetery. Shortly thereafter, Hennink was interviewed and featured in CCM Magazine which is devoted to contemporary Christian music based out of Nashville. Along with Jared Robinson from Nebulus Entertainment, Hennink recorded a cover of “You Say� by Lauren Daigle with permission from the artist. “We put it online because it just means a lot to us. It’s on YouTube and everything else, but we sent it out randomly to a bunch of companies to see if anybody would grab onto it,� Hennink said. “(CCM Magazine) contacted me and said that they get a lot of submissions all of the time, but this one really stood out for them and they were really excited about it. “It was really such a privilege because it’s rare that that

Nicholas Hennink is a Moose Jaw and District EMS advanced care paramedic who has been touched and surprised by the response to his music. (submitted photograph) happens to somebody who is not even on a label.� Hennink has been a paramedic for 16 years, spending the past six in Moose Jaw. He created the project We Are Warriors out of his own struggles dealing with the stresses of the job as a first responder. “I suffered with PTSD and addiction and landed in rehab for a month,� Hennink said. “When I got out, I was going through my own recovery and I wanted to do something different. I wanted to reach out in my own way and tell them it was OK to come forward. I used to write music in South Africa and I played in some bands in Canada and I decided I would reach out to Jared Robinson and see if he would work with me. It’s been going great.� Hennink now travels the province to promote awareness about the realities of being a first responder and to also

fundraise for the campaign. He poses with a We Are Warriors banner with first responders and other health care employees and then posts the photos on social media. “Every time I go‌ there is usually one or two people that will come up to me and tell me that they have struggled. I never realized how huge this issue was until I really started this campaign,â€? Hennink said. “I feel like it allows people to come forward. If my music - which is not such a big deal - if my music helps people come forward then that’s awesome.â€? When he got out of rehab in August of 2017, he began writing. Not only have the songs been a way to begin a dialogue with other first responders, but it has also aided his own recovery. “It’s an outlet,â€? he said. “The way I describe it to people is that you have this void. I used to fill it with alcohol – just like a lot of emergency services or first responders do. You fill it with something. When I came out of rehab, I needed something. I needed an outlet, I needed something positive to fill my life with to help me through the dark times. Music was something I was passionate about anyways, so we went down that road. It’s amazing because now writing a song is such a release. I can put in on paper and record it and people can hear it.â€? To date, Hennink has released four songs and they have plans to release a full album before the end of the year. He has played on his own at some events, but he and Robinson are hoping to get a full band together to play charity events and shows in the fall after the album is released. “We’re releasing one more video that we’re pretty stoked about on the 1st of September,â€? said Hennink who added that the video was animated overseas and has a superhero theme.

Low unemployment rate posted in this region By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

The Swift Current/Moose Jaw labour region had the second lowest unemployment rate of the province’s six regions in the first quarter of the year. Unemployment in the region was 5.5 per cent, just a touch behind 5.2 per cent in Yorkton/Melville, according to the Statistics Canada Labour Survey. Last year at March 30, this region had a 4.6 per cent rate of unemployment. When April Fool’s day arrived, this region had 64,900 people working, up from 63,800 a year previous.

The total work force of 80,800 was 1,500 persons less than a year ago, indicating those people either left the region or quit looking for work. Every one of the six labour regions in Saskatchewan had more people employed at March 31 with a lower unemployment rate. Saskatchewan had 602,000 workers, an increase of 4,800 year over year with an unemployment rate of 5.6 per cent. The Saskatchewan unemployment rate was third lowest in Canada behind Manitoba and British Columbia.

Times have sure changed over the years. I remember the days when religious holidays based on Canadian Christian tradition were respected…days off from work to spend time with the family and maybe even have a minute or two to contemplate what the holiday means. We went to Saskatoon for Joan Ritchie the weekend to spend EasEDITOR ter with family, enjoy time together and to celebrate our faith as believers. On Good Friday and Easter Sunday, the parking lots of the malls and shopping centres were bursting with shoppers. Don’t people get enough of shopping every other day of the year? I have a solution: If tradition went back to stores closed during holidays, people wouldn’t go shopping and would have to think ahead to get what they need a day or two in advance. What a novel idea! Other religious adherers demand respect for their religions here in our country but there’s no respect for the faith our country was founded upon? And then, sad to say, there were hundreds of deaths of worshippers in Sri Lanka this Easter by terrorists. It’s a sign of the times we are living in. ********* Wow! In the political arena, there are now two comedians in power…our Prime Minister Trudeau and now Ukraine has a comedian, too, Volodymyr Zelensky is president after scoring a landslide victory. It will be interesting to see if he becomes the laughing stock of his country as our PM has proven to be. ********* Spring is calling and the earth is answering. What a difference a few days makes! Many trees alongside roadways have already burst forth with pussy willows and some are even turning pale shades of green, leafing out! And of course, weeds springing forth are a sure sign that spring has sprung! As a young girl growing up in the country, I will never forget the signs of spring that many probably have never had the chance to experience and enjoy…random crocuses everywhere, speckling fields with their majestic shades of purple. Not to mention the arrival of crows and robins and the air of expectancy that permeates the atmosphere. Spring seeding is on the horizon…farmers are praying for rain; the ground is really dry, they say! Rain would do us all good, wash away the gray, lush up the lawns in the city and give us all hope for an abundant season of harvest to come. If it’s a good year for farmers, it will be a good year for all! Green thumbs are also itching to get into the garden and plant their flower pots. Me, too!

Pilot program outlines ways Sask. fire departments can reduce cancer risks Matthew Gourlie

Being a firefighter is a dangerous business. The health risks associated with the job only begin after a fire is put out. That was the message that Jim Burneka Jr. gave to the attendees at the Saskatchewan Association of Fire Chiefs conference in Moose Jaw. Burneka is the founder of Firefighter Cancer Consultants and he offered some sobering numbers about the prevalence of cancer amongst firefighters. “I want to tell you what our current reality is,” Burneka said. “Last year in Colorado Springs at the IAFF (International Association of Fire Fighters) Memorial 271 names were added to the wall, 211 of those were from cancer. Nineteen of those were from 9/11 cancers. “The reality is, a lot of the time, we’re dying with our boots off.” A University of Cincinnati firefighter cancer study found that firefighters are twice as likely to develop testicular cancer and have a more than 50 per cent greater rate of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Multiple Myeloma than the rest of the population. The factors that contribute to this are numerous. Not only is it repetitive exposure to carcinogens, but it’s the breadth of toxins that firefighters are exposed to. To top it all off, a study found that the toxins are absorbed 400 per cent more for every five degrees your body temperature is raised. In 2018, firefighter cancer was the second leading cause of occupational disease-related fatalities in Saskatchewan. Thirty per cent of workplace deaths in 2018 were from firefighter cancer. The positive news is that Burneka travelled from his home in Dayton, Ohio to visit 15 fire halls in eight different fire departments in Saskatchewan in February to do a detailed audit as part of a pilot program done with the Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board. As a result of that program, Burneka has a good sense of what departments are doing well and where they can improve to reduce the risks. “What I came in to do was to show this is where we stand and with at least a sampling of Saskatchewan show where we are right now and where we need to go,” Burneka said. “I called out the problems, but part of the solution is trying to figure out a way to help these departments get the funding and get the resources they need and also the education to where they can ultimately try to prevent this. “We’re going to get exposed at a fire, regardless. We’re going to take stuff home with us. But anything we can do to reduce our risk will hopefully add up and we’ll be able to enjoy our career and then enjoy life after retirement.” He wanted to share best practices and a list of “The 25” a self-analysis checklist of 25 ways fire departments can reduce the cancer risk for their staff. As a part of the project, Burneka created an acronym list of 12 highlights to keep in mind to reduce the risk which were expected to be distributed to halls across the province. “I’m hoping they realize just how significant a problem this truly is,” Burneka said. “Then they also realize with that, they need to start doing something. They need to start enacting these policies and these best-practices in order to do everything they can to reduce their risk.” Burneka typically does his audits on an individual station basis and said that Saskatchewan’s halls are on par with what he sees in the U.S. and Canada. “It was very comparable. The same issues that were here

Jim Burneka Jr., founder of Firefighter Cancer Consultants, addressed the attendees at the Saskatchewan Association of Fire Chiefs conference in Moose Jaw Saturday. (Matthew Gourlie photograph) are the same issues that I see in the U.S.,” Burneka said. “I had to go to Sweden – all the way over there – to find somebody who was actually doing everything really the right way.” While some of The 25 tips were very specific, many came down to minimizing risk by wearing a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA, which has a full oxygen tank) and their full personal protective equipment (PPE), especially a particulate-blocking hood, at all calls and – crucially – when doing an overhaul and cleaning up the scene. Burneka said he knows that it’s annoying, heavy and tiring to be in full gear at all scenes, but he tried to stress the importance of doing it any time there are still carcinogens in the air. Burneka also noted that being hyper-vigilant when it comes to cleaning the gear and cleaning yourself the right way after a fire can go a long way to removing many of the carcinogens from the skin, gear and equipment. It was no shock that for many of the categories in the audit that the big city fire halls and the small city fire halls had higher scores because they had more resources than some of their smaller counterparts. “A lot of the stuff is just procedural and also a lot of it is just changing the mindset and realizing just how significant the threat this occupational cancer is and knowing that we can do something about it,” Burneka said. “The rural, volunteer departments definitely needed the resources. They can be doing everything else right, but they don’t have the money for the diesel exhaust system, for a second set of fire gear, to have a gear extractor and properly clean their gear. Those departments that don’t have a lot of money need help to get that stuff.” “They know it’s a priority, by they just don’t have the means to get it quite yet.” Burneka offered the sobering that firefighters are generally healthier than the general population, but also have a 14 per cent higher risk of dying from cancer than the U.S. population as a whole. As part of reducing their risk, Burneka recommends a healthy diet and exercise, limiting sun exposure and refraining from smoking. The other thing that he stressed to a great deal is early detection. If the odds of a firefighter getting cancer are that much higher, catching it early and having an annual wellness exam – including firefighter-specific testing – can save lives even with a cancer diagnosis.

Social Services offices moving to the mall Matthew Gourlie

The Town‘n’Country Mall’s newest tenants will be looking to offer services, not sell them. In a departure from the retail stores that have traditionally occupied the mall space, the offices of the province’s Ministry of Social Services will be relocating into a portion of the former location of Zellers in the north end of the mall. “The Town‘n’Country Mall site was selected through a Request for Proposal process initiated by the Ministry of Central Services. This leased space will allow us to consolidate all Ministry of Social Services staff in the Moose Jaw area into one office. No specific date has yet been identified for the move, but we anticipate it will be later this year,” said the Ministry of Social Services in a statement. Social Services has been located at 36 Athabasca St. W. since their 14,663 sq. ft. office building was completed in 1991. The building is currently listed as being for sale with an asking price of $2,950,000.

Staff who are part of the Valley View Centre transition will also be housed at the mall location. “The Ministry of Social Services currently has staff working out of four different locations in Moose Jaw – Valley View Centre, the office building on Athabasca Street West and two ministry-operated, residential-based programs in the community,” the Ministry of Social Services said in a statement. “As the community is aware, in 2012 we announced the planned closure of Valley View Centre. Over the last number of years, we have been transitioning Valley View residents to inclusive living options in the communities of their choice. As of last week, we have 24 residents at Valley View Centre who are awaiting the completion of their new homes in various communities across the province. Since the 2012 announcement, we have been working with staff as the total number of positions assigned to the centre have been reducing to reflect the needs of fewer residents.

The closure of Valley View Centre is scheduled to be completed by December of this year. “With this planned closure, we need to ensure we have space for the programs and staff that currently provide outreach and prevention services, crisis support, and therapy and assessment out of Valley View Centre as these services will be continuing after the closure. The new office space in the Town‘n’Country Mall will allow us to co-locate these continuing services from Valley View Centre with the staff providing programs and services currently supported at the Athabasca Street West location. The two ministry-operated, residential-based programs and staff complement will be remaining at their current locations, and will not be impacted by the move.” The Town‘n’Country Mall currently has 29 spaces available for lease, including five “development opportunities” that range from 10,000 to 30,000 sq. ft. in size.

Tourism Moose Jaw’s trolley to return after undergoing major repairs By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

The familiar sound of a trolley bell will ring throughout the downtown earlier than usual this year, after Tourism Moose Jaw repaired the vehicle and enhanced its capabilities. The organization is finalizing all safety inspections on the machine — including licensing and plating — and intends to spruce it up in the coming days, said Jacki L’Heureux-Mason, executive director of Tourism Moose Jaw. The vehicle was expected back by April 22. Volunteers will then be trained to operate it, with the first tour tentatively scheduled for Saturday, April 27. Also new this year is the ability to book trolley tours online through the Tourism Moose Jaw website. The organization had planned to take the trolley out of operation last September so the machine could be placed on a diesel chassis, explained L’Heureux-Mason. However, an unexpected brake malfunction occurred that took the machine off the road earlier than anticipated. “When they looked to find parts for it, because it was so old, they couldn’t find anything,” said L’Heureux-Mason recently. All mechanics could do was order a part that provided no guarantees it would even work, she continued. They would also have to spend at least $10,000 on an unreliable braking system. That amount of money for brakes, plus the safety of future passengers, didn’t sit well with L’Heureux-Mason. So, Tourism Moose Jaw “had to make the extremely

To have the machine back in service means a great deal to the organization, L’Heureux-Mason said. The trolley has “a massive impact” on the organization’s bottom line. Having the machine also ensures the business can run all of its summer programs and hire enough summer students.

“On a much grander scheme, it is a huge morale booster for us,” L’Heureux-Mason continued. “It’s one of our favourite things to do in the summer.” Between 300 and 400 tourists per day visit the Tourism Moose Jaw office, with many

of them wanting to ride the trolley. Not only is the machine a conversation starter — it generates economic spinoff throughout the community — but it makes L’Heureux-Mason glad when she hears the bell or sees the trolley while downtown. The complete overhaul of the trolley cost $15,000. Tourism Moose Jaw placed the vehicle on a diesel chassis — essentially turning it into a school bus — which makes it easier to repair, she explained. Instead of using a propane-powered trolley, a diesel vehicle allows the business to operate trolley for longer periods during the day and the year. For example, last year the propane-powered trolley refused to co-operate if it was under 10 degrees Celsius or more than 35 degrees Celsius. L’Heureux-Mason now believes they could run the trolley until Halloween. The trolley ensures Tourism Moose Jaw can offer more tours, including the popular school tours, she said. If the upgraded trolley can run longer during the day, three additional tours could also be given. There would also be fewer problems if a group booked an evening trip.

CORNER If you were to meet me for the first time you would immediately be impressed with my incredibly “rugged” good looks, my amazing intellect (4 years of grade 8), my well-groomed beard and probably most of all… my beautiful and athletic legs. I have been blessed with a pair of by Dale “bushy” fine-looking man legs. To Bush be honest, I should wear a kilt year-round but out of respect for my bride I keep my gams covered during most of the winter which keeps the leg stalkers at bay…for a while. During the rest of the year I enjoy wearing shorts and I have learned to accept wolf whistles from my admiring public (men and women) as part of the leg blessing. The first pair of short pants I can remember proudly wearing was when my Mom took a pair of pinking shears from her sewing basket and cut the legs off my favorite pair of jeans just below the back pockets. No muss, no fuss, and although I had asked her to patch the hole in the knee, I now had a pair of cutoffs that were in style. In a decade or two, this style of shorts would become hugely popular when Dai-

A Shorts Story sy Duke from the TV show, The Dukes of Hazzard, would wear her cut-offs while washing the General Lee, the car star of the show… Lucky General Lee. I recall having to wear gym shorts in school, which was okay because they did enhance my athletic performance. Even at that young age, they showed off my well-developed legs, but(t) they were on the skimpy side and barely covered my tighty-whiteys, never-mind my behind. There were times when I prayed that those tighty-whiteys stayed tight so they kept everything in place…whew! I have usually been able to wear shorts in most of my jobs and that produced some unusual leg suntan lines, with my calves becoming beautifully bronzed and suntanned while my thighs remained their natural white pasty alabaster colour. Having two-toned legs with bronzed calves and a white glow from the dark thighs is not a big problem until we go to the beach and I wear my speedo or my thong. That is when folks will ask me to take the batteries out of my legs to make them less blindingly bright. At least I don’t have a trucker’s tan anymore, with the left forearm and the left side of my face tanned, It’s hard to then suntan in a way that evens out the entire body in one shade. When shorts season arrives, usually on the first sunshiny day of spring, I go through the annual ritual of discovering how much my belly has matured and

grown. This is when some of my wardrobe will get dropped from the line-up and given to the thrift store for recycling. This also is an opportunity to add to my wardrobe from the thrift store. Lately, I have a favorite style of shorts that are described as “Cargo Shorts”. The main feature of theses shorts are the many pockets on the front, back and both sides. With good planning, a guy can carry as much in his pockets as his wife can carry in her purse. I call things as they are, calling my cargo shorts “purse shorts.” I’m waiting for the day when someone invents the “cooler shorts” that will keep a few cans of beer ice cold… and convenient. I can dream can’t I? It has been a few spring days of wearing shorts while getting the gardens and yard in shape. Already my legs are gaining colour, mostly from cuts, bruises and scrapes and I couldn’t be happier. Happy Shorts Season!

Businesses Making Moose Jaw A Better Place It is always awe-inspiring to attend the Moose Jaw Business Excellence Awards (MJ-BEX), once again this year. Over 60 businesses were finalists in 15 categories. Particularly encouraging is the number of new businesses that have been started and are being run by young entrepreneurs. Trades and construction businesses were well-represented, which points to growth in our city. Mike Walz was honoured in memoriam as the Business Leader of the Year. Mike exemplifies the leadership and contributions that our business leaders offer. He was outstanding for what he gave to the community as well as in his business

success. In accepting the award, his son, Russ, spoke of lessons he learned from his father. Mike Walz imparted the wisdom that “respect is given and trust is earned”, and that “you need to be willing to work hard; you need to work smart, and you need to be involved”. The nominees at the MJ-BEX have demonstrated that they are following that wisdom. The value of businesses for our local economy and in contributing to the needs in our community, needs to be fully appreciated. They help construct the added benefits that make Moose Jaw a friendly, thriving community. The finalists in this year’s Business Excellence Awards over-



whelmingly fit into the category of a small business, with fewer than 50 employees. Small businesses account for over 98.8% of the more than 150,000 business enterprises in the province. In 2017, small businesses employed 31.2% of Saskatchewan workers, and paid out over $6.3 billion in wages and salaries. Twenty-seven per cent of Saskatchewan’s gross domestic product was attributed to small business. Nearly 10,000 new jobs were created in Saskatchewan in the past year, thanks in large part to small business. Just from our office on High Street, I see the huge impact of businesses on employment, which is the foundation for a thriving community. We say hello every morning to the folks at Cross Canada Flooring. I look across the street to Speedy Glass, Grand Valley Press, Murray’s Signs, and Fit 4 Life. There are literally dozens of families that benefit because these business operators have the vision and wisdom to continue a successful venture. The impact of our major employers like Gibson, CP Rail, Thunder Creek Pork, trucking companies, JGL Group, our agriculture services, Mosaic, Yara and K+S,

Our local businesses respond generously when approached to assist with community events, both financially and with a good contingent of volunteers willing to give of their time. Many times, business operators are the ones leading initiatives to make our city a better place. In the coming weeks, we will see the names of some of our businesses on the backs of the shirts of young ball and soccer players. Businesses also get involved in programs like Hunger in Moose Jaw’s “I Bought A Lunch” campaign. Sincere congratulations to all of the Moose Jaw Business Excellence Awards nominees.

Local construction values increase 37 per cent By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

A $2.3 million office building project on Thatcher Drive East propelled city building permits by 37 per cent to March 30. City Hall issued 38 permits valued at $6.6 million during the first three months of 2019. Last year building permits in the three months amounted to $1.6 million. To date, 11 residential house permits worth $3.7 million have been issued compared with five

worth $1.7 million last year. One residential house permit was issued in March, same as in March 2018. Other main permits in March were two each worth $100,000 for a retail outlet building at 30 Thatcher Drive East, and an office building at 32 Manitoba Street West, and $70,000 for alterations at 15 Thatcher Drive East.

SaskPower consults public regarding proposed natural gas facility Matthew Gourlie

The expected first tenant of Moose Jaw’s new Southeast Industrial Park met the public last Wednesday. SaskPower, along with the City of Moose Jaw and Associated Engineering, held an open house to discuss the new industrial park and SaskPower’s planned natural gas facility that will be housed at the site. A number of representatives from SaskPower were on hand to discuss the plans for the new facility that will be located south of the Moose Jaw River and east of the No. 2 Highway. “We want to make sure we engage the public early and often in the process,� said SaskPower spokesperson Joel Cherry. “We invited the public here today both to provide a lot of information about what it is that we’re planning, but also to get important feedback from the people who live here. Ultimately they know what the concerns are better than anyone else.� The new Moose Jaw power station will be an important cornerstone of SaskPower’s move to drastically reduce its carbon emissions. “Our commitment is that we’re going to get our carbon footprint, our total emissions, down to 40 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030,� Cherry said. “2030 is our benchmark and we want to have significant carbon reductions by then. That will be done, in large part, through shifting to cleaner options such as natural gas for our baseload power and also through increasing renewables. What we’re looking at here for Moose Jaw is going to provide that baseload power going forward.� SaskPower bought 110 acres of land from

Members of the public talk to representatives from SaskPower at the Southeast Industrial Concept Plan Open House. Matthew Gourlie photograph the City for $615,000 though Cherry notes that the footprint of the actual plant will be significantly smaller than that. Given that there are still in the consultation stage, a hard date for construction has yet to been set, but the project is expected to begin construction in the second half of 2020 at the earliest, with 2024 the target for the opening of the power station. While SaskPower is adding more new sources of energy like solar and wind power to lower emissions, they are sources of intermittent power, while natural gas provides baseload power. “Basically, as long as the plant is on, you’re producing power. And that will support that intermittent power. Natural gas has a lower carbon footprint than con-

vention coal does,� Cherry said. The new Moose Jaw power station will produce 350 megawatts of power, the same as the Chinook Power Station in Swift Current which is still under construction but nearing completion. “Between the two that’s 700 megawatts of power and at the moment the max capacity of SaskPower’s grid – and that includes energy that we import from Manitoba,

Maple syrup export valueBy Ron exceeds flax exports Walter - For Agri-Mart Express AGRIMART

EXPRESS Canadian exports of maple sugar and syrup amounted to $405 million last year, about twice the expected flax exports for this year. Maple sugar production has increased 250 per cent since 1987 while the number of tree taps has tripled in 30 years to 44.4 million, according to Statistics Canada. About two-thirds of the eight million gallons in annual exports go to the United States with 20 per cent taken by four

countries — Germany, United Kingdom, Japan and Australia. Ninety per cent of the 9.8 million gallons of maple syrup produced in Canada comes from Quebec with five per cent from Ontario. New Brunswick and Nova Scotia produce the rest. The northeastern United States are producing more maple syrup with 3.3 million gallons in 2018 from Vermont, New York and Maine out of 4.1 million in the U.S. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

and that includes independent producers that we buy from – is about 4,500 MW,� Cherry said. “So that gives you an idea of what these two plants are going to bring to the table.� There has been no estimate of a cost for the construction, but Cherry noted that it is expected to be in the same ballpark as the Chinook Power Station in Swift Current that is due to be completed by year’s end at a cost of $680 million. Cherry said that according to SaskPower’s calculations, at the peak of construction there will be more than 500 people working at the site and that over the three years of construction the facility will employ an average of 230 people per year. SaskPower estimates that the construction will generate $140 million for Saskatchewan businesses. “So that is going to bring a lot of money into the area because people are going to be staying here,� Cherry said. “We haven’t determined how the procurement is going to work yet, but there is major potential for economic spinoff here. That’s something we have seen in Swift Current already with the building of Chinook.� When the power station is completed, it will employ 20 people.

City Hall Council Notes Students attempt to convince council to move away from plastic bags usage By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

A.E. Peacock Collegiate originally planned to collect 5,000 plastic bags from the community to recycle, but after receiving more than 35,000, the school adjusted its goal to collect as many as possible. Science teacher Stephen Lys and environmental science students Rylan Downey and Brittney Anderson spoke to city council during its April 11 executive committee meeting. They discussed their school’s effort to collect plastic grocery bags as part of the national Plastic Grab Bag Challenge. The trio also put forward a strategy the municipality could adopt to eliminate single-use plastics in Moose Jaw. Residents bring in 1,000 and 3,000 plastic bags per day for disposal, while businesses have also been collecting for them, Lys told council. There are now more than 39 large black garbage bags holding 600 cubic metres of plastic in his classroom. Plastic is made of petroleum and contributes to carbon dioxide, said Anderson. It takes centuries to break down and can’t be easily recycled. About 200,000 bags is equal to 4,000 cubic feet of landfill space per week. Dirty plastic eventually becomes unrecoverable, she continued. China is no longer accepting foreign recycling, while fees for plastic grocery bags only benefit the company and not the environment. There are positive aspects to banning plastic bags, said Downey. The landfill’s lifespan would increase since there would be more room. Furthermore, plastic bags can be easily replaced with sustainable alternatives such as cloth. Moose Jaw can also position itself to be a leader provincially and nationally in moving away from single-use plastics.

Seven cities in North America have already banned single-used plastics. San Francisco was the first, in 2007; Montreal and Victoria followed suit last year. Halifax, N.S., the province of Newfoundland and New York State are also moving in that direction. The vision Lys and his students have for Moose Jaw includes developing solar and geothermal projects, along with installing solar panels on the roof of every school, eliminating plastic bags and giving free parking for electric cars. At the end of the presentation, Lys and his students presented council with information packages about how Victoria eliminated the use of plastic bags and how its council informed the public about this process.

Council considers banning single-use plastic bags By Jason G. Antonio Moose Jaw Express Reporter As of April 12, A.E. Peacock had collected 44,500 single-use plastic bags. The bags will be sent to the Trex Company to be turned into composite decking and furniture. After the presentation, council voted 6-1 on a recommendation to have city administration bring a report to the next executive committee meeting about possibly banning plastic bags in Moose Jaw. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Coun. Dawn Luhning then introduced a recommendation to have administration bring forward a report looking at banning plastic bags in Moose Jaw. Creating new habits among residents will be important, said Tolmie. “The crux of this is, either do it or don’t do it. There is no halfway with this.� Luhning believes council needs to take the necessary steps to protect the environment.

Girl Guides selling cookies until end of April Matthew Gourlie

It’s as sure a sign of spring as potholes and playoff hockey: local Girl Guides are out in the community selling cookies to raise funds for Guide activities throughout the year. Sales last until the end of April. “If you know a girl that is in guiding you can contact them, or contact any of us leaders and also on our Facebook. If you message us on our Facebook page, someone will come out and sell cookies to you,� said Debbie Zumstein, co-commissioner and leader for the Salton District Girl Guides. Anyone interested in buying cookies can also contact Zumstein at 306-631-9342.

The local Girl Guides numbers are continuing to grow in recent years. There are 78 girls registered locally this year. They have their district camp coming up in June at Lumsden Beach. “Our district camp includes Craik, Riverhurst and Gravelbourg. We’ll have lots of girls at that. It’s all the way from our Sparks (ages 5-6) up to our Rangers (ages 15-17),� Zumstein said. The Guides also had some unexpected visitors at their last meeting when they ended up calling 911 and had a visit from the Moose Jaw Fire Department. “We had a little excitement at our meeting. They smelled rotten eggs in the building,

so they had to call 911 because they suspected a gas leak,� Zumstein said. “It was all cleared. There was nothing.� First aid and emergency response is part of the Guide program, so it was good for the Guides to see the Fire Department’s response. The regional district is named after Reverend Dr. G.F. Salton who began the local Guides chapter at Zion Church in 1910. That gives it the distinction of being the oldest Guide group in the country, though St. Catherine’s, Ont.’s guides registered their group with the headquarters in England first to officially be the first Canadian Guide Company.

City Hall Council Notes

Independent panel to determine pay of future city councils By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

The current city council will not have a hand in determining what its future pay will be, and instead, will leave the decision in the hands of an arms-length panel. The creation of such a panel is in response to the federal government eliminating the tax exemption on one-third of all remuneration for elected officials. This move has resulted in a net pay cut for all mayors and councillors; mayors have been affected the most since that position is usually full-time. During its recent executive committee meeting, Moose Jaw council voted 6-1 on a recommendation to appoint a three-member panel to make recommendations on council’s remuneration and expenses. These recommendations would go into effect for members elected during the November 2020 municipal election. The three-member panel would consist of the city clerk/ solicitor as chair, a representative as nominated by the Moose Jaw and District Chamber of Commerce, and a representative nominated by the Moose Jaw and District Labour Council. Formal appointment of the two recommended members would be made by June. The panel would seek public input through written submissions and a public hearing. Any new remuneration and expense structure would go into effect Jan. 1, 2021. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed to the recommendation. The recommendation only becomes official when passed

during the April 22 regular council meeting. Background In response to the federal government’s decision, many large cities in Saskatchewan adjusted their 2019 remuneration rates so their elected officials continued to receive about the same net pay, explained a city administration report. Before adjusting their rates, the pay formula for the mayor of Saskatoon was 85 per cent of a provincial cabinet minister; 77.3 per cent for Regina’s mayor; 50 per cent for Prince Albert’s mayor; and 47 per cent for Moose Jaw’s mayor. The remuneration of councillors, considered part-time, was generally set at 35 per cent of what a mayor makes. A provincial cabinet minister’s annual indemnity and allowance is $145,152. As of 2018, the salary of Moose Jaw’s mayor was $68,221, while the salary of a city councilor was $22,740. With the removal of the tax exemption, the mayor now receives $53,475 while councillors receive $20,819. If Moose Jaw city council had increased its pay, as per a recommendation during the 2019 budget discussions, then the mayor would have received $79,108 before taxes and councillors would have received $24,918 before taxes. The amendments that Saskatchewan cities have made in 2019 to retain net incomes have now distorted the rela-

tionship to the cabinet minister benchmark, the administrative report said. Saskatoon and Regina have set their mayor’s salary to that of a minister. Lloyminster, which has about the same population as Moose Jaw, set its mayoral salary at $15,000 above Moose Jaw’s. Yorkton, with half the population of The Friendly City and whose mayor is part-time, now pays its mayor more than Moose Jaw. To handle council remuneration and expenses of elected officials, administration recommended that a panel be created due to the “given self-interest of members currently in elected positions, as well as their general reluctance to setting their own pay.”

An independent panel will determine how much pay future Moose Jaw city councils will receive, to help offset a federal decision that eliminated a tax exemption. Photo courtesy

Community could adopt benches along Main Street through proposed program By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

Sixteen (16) sidewalk benches along a seven-block stretch of Main Street could be transformed to infuse colour, culture and community spirit into the downtown. These seats — located between Oxford Street and Manitoba Street — would be part of a proposed Main Street Adopt-aBench Program. During the recent executive committee meeting, city council approved a recommendation 6-1 to adopt the program and send it to the April 22 regular council meeting for official approval. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. This program would address some recommendations from a report presented to council in June 2018, according to a city administration document. These benches would address: • Aesthetics and charm: More colour would be added to the downtown, from colourful park benches to flowers and planters on streetscapes • Profile and celebration of culture: Cultures would be celebrated and appreciated, not just behind museum walls, but in streets and public spaces • Core amenities and services: These benches would be painted, while sidewalks would also be pressure washed and street lights cleaned • People and culture: This program would encourage citizen engagement and ownership Transit benches and plastic benches along Main Street would not be included in the

Owner of Cranberry Rose set to retire end of April Larissa Kurz

The first time Cranberry Rose opened its doors, it was located on Langdon Crescent in the Slade House, as Liz Craigen fondly remembers. Now, the ladieswear boutique is at home located on Main Street, a couple of stores up from the corner of Fairford W. As of April 30th, the loving owner is retiring after more than 20 years in business. Craigen first opened her doors in partnership with Yvette Moore, with home decor, giftware, a ladieswear boutique and a tea room on the deck. Shortly after, Moore moved on to open the Yvette Moore Gallery, and Craigen stayed on Langdon Crescent for another ten years. The old house, as Craigen affectionately calls it, was famous for its ivy deck and homemade scones; the tea room was the primary focus of the little boutique, and the location made it a popular summertime spot. “We called it the ivy deck because the roof of it was all ivy’s growing across it. So that became a very popular spot for summer for tea and lunches,” said Craigen. “We made everything homemade. One of the favorites was our scones with the Devonshire cream and lemon butter or strawberry butter.” After a decade in the food service business, Craigen saw an opportunity to move her boutique to its current location on Main Street, which took some convincing but eventually came to fruition — she has now been in that space for over ten years. Cranberry Rose was borne of a combination of Craigen’s desire for more creativity in her life and the joy she has gotten

Owner Liz Craigen, who began Cranberry Rose out of a passion for shopping and antiques.

from shopping, made possible by dedication and determination. “I just sort of had the desire to do more than just sit at a desk. I wanted to be more creative,” said Craigen. “When the opportunity came up for the house on Langdon Crescent, I was very excited because I could go shopping and display it and make a living off it, and buy clothes that people loved.” After tearing up 8 layers of carpet and linoleum, Craigen and her husband revealed the hardwood floors in the shop, vaulted the ceiling, and settled in. She said her space on Main Street is the best


spot downtown to be and is pleased with the continued support from her customers. “Moose Jaw is a really good place to be in business because you know most of your customers already and they’re friends,” said Craigen. “I am so fortunate that I had so much support from the community and surrounding areas; that really made the business. Without customers, you can’t do anything. So I’m thanking all our customers for the many, many years, from the old house on Langdon to here, they’ve followed us and supported us for forever.”

She also credits her staff for her success and their continued loyalty that made her business special. “I’ve had fantastic staff,” said Craigen. “And so I can’t say enough about the staff I’ve had; they’ve just made my life so much easier. . . I couldn’t have done it without you.” Craigen’s choice to retire will leave her free to visit her children and grandchildren, who live in various places across Canada and give her a chance to travel. She is sad to leave her business in the hands of another but excited to move forward and experience some new places. As of Apr. 30, Cranberry Rose will be in the hands of the new owner Christine Keck, who will be shadowing Craigen in the last few weeks of April before officially taking charge. On Apr. 26, the shop will be hosting a celebration party for both Craigen and Keck, from 4 - 6pm at the shop with refreshments and prizes.

New owner of Cranberry Rose excited to get her foot in the door Larissa Kurz

Cranberry Rose, located a few shops down from the corner of Fairford Street and Main, has been a part of Moose Jaw’s shopping scene for over 20 years — and hopefully for many more with its new owner, Christine Keck. Current owner Liz Craigen is retiring, and now that she’s found someone to take over her business, there’s a feeling of nostalgia about the change. “It’s going to be different, not being here every day, said Craigen. “I’m going to miss the place, but I am ready to retire.” Craigen sold Cranberry Rose to Keck, who has moved from Calgary to Moose Jaw for her venture into the retail business and will be shadowing Craigen for the remainder of April until she formally takes over at the end of the month. Keck said she had been looking to get into retail for some time, as well as looking to move back to Saskatchewan, and thought this was a great fit for her and her husband. “I saw Cranberry Rose online, and we went to check it out in January, and I

met Liz and everything and kind of fell in love with the store,” said Keck. “We were just looking for a smaller center [in Saskatchewan] and Moose Jaw just seems like such a great city, and we have some family there, close by.”

Keck made the decision to buy Cranberry Rose in February and has been preparing for her new entrepreneurial role since. “[Christine] has already gone to a market and we’ve met her there; she loved

it, so she’s done a few markets on her own now,” said Craigen. “And you know, she’ll have her own ideas, so I’m excited to see the changes and help her through the transition.” The future of Cranberry Rose doesn’t seem to have any turbulence on the horizon, as Keck appreciates the work Craigen has already done to build her business — although she does want to put her own flair into it as well. “I don’t want to change it too much. I think [Liz] has a really great thing going on there and she’s been in business for 25 years, so I don’t want to just come in and bulldoze or anything,” said Keck. “But yeah, definitely I have some plans to put my own spin on things, in the near future for sure.” Cranberry Rose will be hosting a joint retirement and welcome event for Craigen and Keck on Apr. 26, from 4 - 6pm at the store, featuring cupcakes, cranberry punch — naturally — and a chance to meet the new owner and celebrate Craigen’s accomplishments.

Peacock students hone their skills at provincial competition The 21st installment of the provincial Skills Canada competition welcomed over 400 competitors to Saskatoon and Regina on Apr. 12 to showcase their skills in various trades; nine of those students were from A.E. Peacock Collegiate. Joel Robinson, one of the teachers who accompanied the group, said the students chosen each demonstrated ex-

Larissa Kurz ceptional skill in their category. While only one student placed, Desiree Rader with a bronze medal in Fashion Technology, the experience was rewarding for all of the competitors who traveled to the event. Only one representative from each school is permitted to enter the provincial level competition, but there isn’t room for a student from every school to attend, which makes it slightly difficult to make the cut. “It’s quite narrow to get students in on the competitions. And then to also have a student that’s prepared and ready to go is often a bit of a task, but Peacock always has good representation at it,” said Robinson. The Skills Canada competition seeks to encourage students to view their skills in a new light, focusing on the future and the opportunities available in the trades. This mandate falls nicely in line with the programs that Peacock offers, said Robinson. “At Peacock, we promote trades and skills quite heavily here because of the facility that we have and the programs that we offer students. We encourage students to try and strive for quality in all their work,” said Robinson. “Working towards something like the Skills Canada competitions demands that students keep themselves at a high standard and work towards quality, complete projects.” “There’s a lot of room for error in a curricular class at a high school because students are brand new to it. This competition demands that students are experienced and have quality in their work,” said Robinson. “[And the time constraints] add additional pressure to students, which isn’t a bad thing as it gives them a bit more of a genuine feeling as to what working in the industry is like,

Meanwhile, in Regina, Landon Schire and Jaxton Kurz competed in Auto Body Painting, and Josh Werner in Auto Body Repair. The experience of the competition is meant to really expose students to the trades in a more realistic setting than a classroom. “It helps students kind of push themselves and try to work out of the box and think on their own,” said Robinson. “[During competition], I’m not allowed to coach my students through difficult situations. It’s all on their own.”

Newcomer Centre Hosting Spring Kick-Off Dance Party Larissa Kurz

The Spring Dance Party invites newcomer women and girls to stop at the Newcomer Centre on Apr. 24 at 7pm for some Dance Fit and snacks, and to talk about the upcoming recreational programming for this year. The event is open to anyone interested in dropping in and is free to attend. The Newcomer Centre runs a Newcomer Healthy Women’s Living Project, through the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women in Sport and Physical Activity. Twice a month, the Newcomer Centre runs an activity for newcomer women and girls, with the goal of promoting healthy living and integration into the community. In the past, those events have included yoga classes, swimming, and even canoeing and kayaking with the Moose Jaw River and Adventure Tours. Upcoming events for this year are being

Danett VanTassel, Information Advisor at the Newcomer Centre, finds events

like these to be useful, as the focus is to help build a supportive community for women new to the city. “We find when newcomers get involved in community activities in the city, they get to meet more people in the community, and build confidence living in Canada, and practice their English,” said VanTassel. “It can be kind of isolating and lonely when you move to a new country, so it’s important to take care of yourself physically as well as mentally.” VanTassel encourages women in the city to come to the dance party, to meet other women in the community and to give some input on the kinds of activities they’d like to see happen this year. Those interested in volunteering at the Newcomer Centre are also welcome to stop in, or give the centre a call at (306) 692-6892 for more information on how to get involved.

Masquerade Ball plans magical night Larissa Kurz

For the fourth year in a row, masked strangers will be taking over the ballroom at the Heritage Inn for the Masquerade Ball on May 11. The annual fundraiser supports the Canadian Mental Health Association and organizer Roxanne Shandera hopes that it brings the importance of mental health to the front of everyone’s minds. Having struggled with her own mental health in the past, Shandera felt that the topic was in need of some recognition and began organizing an event that would serve as a platform for the discussion. She felt that the masquerade was an apt metaphor to build from. “I know that everybody wears masks and sometimes we wear more than one mask,” said Shandera. “But a lot of times people are going through their own little struggles and they don’t know how to talk about it or they are thinking they shouldn’t talk about it. . . and I just think that’s not how it should be.” The Masquerade Ball welcomes attendees to dress up and wear a mask for the night — the event even has masks available to purchase at the door, as well as a makeup artist to paint on something elaborate for those who would rather do that. This year’s theme is “magical,” with guest entertainer

Many of the attendees make their own masks and are excited to do so each year; Shandera remains impressed by the craftsmanship. “There’s bird masks, there’s masks with horns and rings in the nose. And there’s checkered masks, there’s flower masks, there’s just no end to all the different masks; it’s very cool,” said Shandera. “And for outfits, I mean, we had some incredible, beautiful, thoughtful costumes that are handmade and they’re spectacular.” The event aims to bring people together in a fun atmosphere, to remind them that although mental health is a prevalent issue, discussing it doesn’t have to be a sombre affair. Creating a light and supportive atmosphere to acknowledge the presence of mental health was Shandera’s goal. “I wanted to be able to just get the word out, to be able to make it an easier conversation and just get more information out there,” said Shandera. “I really wanted to do something in my own community.” Tickets for the ball are still available and can be purchased either at Wrapture Spa or by calling Roxanne directly at (306) 631-1199. Information about the event is kept up to date through the Masquerade Ball’s Facebook page.

Why Quebec gets the lion’s share of equalization from Ottawa Alberta premier-elect Jason Kenney plans a referendum on whether Albertans want to continue with the federal/provincial equalization payment plan. Albertans generally are upset because, as Kenney says, they pay way more into the plan than they receive from the federal government. The way Kenney and others talk equalization is a pot of money that wealthier provinces pay into and less wealthy provinces withdraw for their needs.

Nothing could be further from the truth. There is no equalization pot of money. The money distributed by the federal government comes out of tax revenues collected across Canada. Alberta can complain its taxpayers pay more federal taxes than their share. But the average per capita income in Alberta during 2017 was $78,213, some 33 per cent above the national average. That was a year of relative recession with the oil patch reeling from low prices.

Saskatchewan average per capita income in 2017 was $69,095 – second highest in Canada and 18 per cent above the national average. The equalization formula developed by negotiations in the 1950s calculates payments from the feds based on the difference between per capita need and per capita revenue-generating ability. The issue that angers leaders in Alberta, and to a lesser extent Saskatchewan and Newfoundland and Labrador, is use of resource revenues to calculate equalization payments, without including resources taxpayers from these three provinces would send much less tax revenue to Ottawa. In this instance, the argument against equalization appears to be one of greed, not unfair sharing. The family of Canadian provinces keeps squabbling over distribution of tax revenues. One of the main concerns by Western taxpayers that politicians have picked up on relates to the huge amounts of money Quebec receives under equalization. Opponents of equalization claim they subsidize poorer provinces like a welfare recipient, allowing Quebec, for example, to fund low university tuition and generous day care. La Belle Province will receive almost 66 per cent of the $19.6 billion equalization in 2019-20. The payments amount to 17

per cent of the Quebec budget. Other provinces on the receiving end since 2016 have been Manitoba, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Ontario. Once Ontario qualified for equalization some years ago, Alberta’s complaints grew as the equalization load shifted west. Ontario does not qualify this year. Quebec gets the lion’s share of equalization payments because the payments from Ottawa are based on per capita needs. Quebec with 8.45 million people has 72 per cent of the population among the receiving provinces, therefore that province isn’t getting more than its share. Some Saskatchewan taxpayers and politicians forget this province is only 13 years from having received these payments. Payments have accounted for eight to 10 per cent of budget revenues. Equalization payments come in handy for the boom and bust resource economy like this province has. In fact, original demands for some kind of equalization payments came from Saskatchewan Premier James Gardiner during the 1930s Great Depression. The family of Canadian provinces will continue to quarrel over equalization payments until all are equally poor, or equally wealthy. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

City Hall Council Notes

Extra $2.1 million in federal funding going toward infrastructure and sportsplex By Jason G. Antonio - Express Reporter

An extra $2.1 million in federal Gas Tax funding will go toward Moose Jaw’s east feeder water mains project, cast iron pipe replacement program and enhancements to the Kinsmen Sportsplex. Broken down, the east feeder water mains project will receive $1.175 million, the cast iron replacement program will get $500,000 and the Kinsmen Sportsplex will receive $425,000. City council gave approval to split the funding three ways during its April 8th regular meeting. The east feeder mains project and cast-iron replacement program received unanimous support, while Coun. Dawn Luhning was opposed to directing funding to the sportsplex. Luhning added that it would be less expensive to finish the cast iron replacement project quickly, instead of dragging it out 20 to 25 years. There are 30 kilometres of underground water feeder mains throughout the city,

Antonio 60-year-old line ranges in size from 400 millimetres to 500 millimetres in diameter. The steel portions have seen more than 20 breaks in the last five years. This pipe has had more breaks than any other feeder in the city, which makes it a top priority for replacement, he pointed out. Puffalt added that the last phase of the east feeder mains project — valued at $3 mil-

lion before the Gas Tax funding — would see roughly 850 metres of 500-millimetre diameter water pipeline installed using open cut and trenchless methods. Some of the proposed renovations at the Kinsmen Sportsplex would focus on installing a new system to make ice at the arena; upgrade the pool’s mechanical systems; replace part of the HVAC system; replace the dry line fire suppression piping; have separate fire and domestic cross connection protections; update the heat exchanger to a tankless system; exterior renovations and roof repairs; and interior renovations to areas such as the change rooms. Puffalt noted completing all of those renovations would have reduced the capital requirements for the sportsplex during the next 20 years. The building would have become more energy efficient, while there would been less pressure on property taxes.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Some hair today but no toss curls

For someone whose birth records in her baby book indicate she was born as bald as a bowling ball, hair on the head is to be cherished. In fact, hair in my personal case was such an important incident that the parent kept a reddish-coloured curl preJoyce Walter served in my personal growth For Moose Jaw Express records. That curl took several years to produce so it was an extra special artifact. The brother teased that the parent clipped it from the family dog because Mom was so upset that she had brought home a bald baby. Eventually my curls grew and prospered and required periodic trims which unfortunately, photos show, were not especially stylish — but there was never any bangs obscuring my eyesight. School photos catalogued the progress of my head of hair, going from bowl-like to a pony tail to wavy, straight as a

ruler to curly and oddly-shaped. I do recall the argument I made to have a neighbour lady cut my hair instead of putting the parent to all the trouble of cutting and styling. That hair cut was done with a razor blade instead of the kitchen shears and an old-fashioned set of clippers. And suddenly I thought I was in style to match the hairdos of my friends. My first professional hair cut came at the hands of a stylist at Peggy’s Beauty Parlour on Main Street in Moose Jaw. What a feeling to be shampooed, cut and then curled while my Mother watched with a critical eye. I proudly handed over the money I had saved for such an occasion. I vowed never to wash away my new style, but the parent’s fear of cooties put an end to that water-saving idea. Being a kid still made me vulnerable to the hairdressing skills of the parent who had a large collection of metal rollers that pulled going on and again coming off. A frizz ball resulted when the curls were brushed out. Finally, some control of my hair came to me when I received some rubber rollers and others with brushes inside. I’d curl, sleep on my elbow and then my friend

would backcomb my curls and set them in place with a hurricane of hairspray. As my hair grew longer, my rollers got larger and my style was flat on top, long and straight, with a slight upcurl on the ends. In my independent years my stylists gave me a pageboy, toss curls, a shag, a pixie and toss curls for special occasions. And when it was popular, I had a short Afro, causing family members to joke about regression to baby years when I had no hair. All of this attention to hair and various styles was prompted by some browsing on my favourite Internet sites where it was revealed that April 30 is hairstyle appreciation day. On that day I will be appreciative that even though my hair is thinner, I still have more than when I was born. It should be noted that April 30 is also national honesty day which means there will be much laughter when my baby/childhood photo albums show off how my hair grew — or didn’t.

Volunteer Fair to feature Moose Jaw’s non-profits Larissa Kurz The Western Development Museum is hosting their first Volunteer Fair on May 4, from 1-4pm, and they’re hoping to see an enthusiastic turnout from both organizations and potential volunteers. Karla Rasmussen, programs coordinator at the museum, wants to see the fair bring together all of the Friendly City’s various non-profit organizations in one convenient place for people to get involved in volunteering around the community. “The fair would offer a sort of one-stop shop for local residents to find organizations that are in need of volunteers or members, and that will help make our city a better place,” said Rasmussen. “It’s always better when everyone’s involved.” Volunteering is a good opportunity to build a resume and make a difference in one’s community, said Rasmussen, adding that the fair is meant to make that a much easier task to tackle for new volunteers. “Volunteering is a great way to grow those marketable

skills,” said Rasmussen. “Those sorts of networking opportunities, where you can meet other people from other organizations, they can definitely do better and bigger things down the road too.” The focus is not only on the volunteer force, however; the fair wants to help out organizations at the same time. “It’s a great opportunity to hopefully meet a lot of new people and network and see who might be available to help out your organization,” said Rasmussen. “I think every organization kind of goes through those cycles where they maybe are getting a little bit low on their volunteer force and they’re needing to bolster those numbers up.” Also supporting the event is the Moose Jaw Multicultural Council, the City of Moose Jaw, and the Canadian Council on Rehabilitation and Work; the mutual agreement is that volunteers are necessary for everyone in the community. “We are hoping this [event] will be a good size and that

Margaret French, a volunteer at the WDM, demonstrates old-fashioned toys at a recent event.

Two prime ministers show indecisiveness becomes leadership flaw

by Ron Walter

The sight of crowds booing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has a parallel from nearly 60 years ago when Prime Minister John Diefenbaker from Saskatchewan governed Canada. Diefenbaker ended 23 years of Liberal government with a minority win in 1957, a year later winning the largest majority in Canadian history —

208 of 265 seats. That election marked the Conservative conversion of the West. Only two opposition MPs came from the west – CCF socialist Hazen Argue of Saskatchewan and James Sinclair of Vancouver, who became Justin Trudeau’s grandfather. The West has remained a Conservative bastion since. Diefenbaker had the misfortune of taking over when a recession was brewing. Unemployment reached record highs, up by 22 per cent. As usual, the blame went to government and Diefenbaker. In the nickel mining city of Sudbury angry crowds surrounded and rocked his car on a visit. The other similarity with Trudeau was indecision.

Instead of cutting off discordant/disloyal cabinet ministers quickly when issues arose, Trudeau dithered and prolonged scandal news by trying to talk his way out of the matter. No other Canadian Prime Minister since Diefenbaker, except for the diplomat Lester Pearson, would have let this issue simmer and burn so long in the public eye. The minister in question would have been fired and that would have stopped the unending news cycle. Perhaps Trudeau dithered because he knew firing a woman minister and an Indigenous minister at that would have severe repercussions on his feminist and Indigenous policy themes. Whatever the reason, no one could have positioned themselves better to take on Trudeau for the Liberal leadership than Jody Wilson-Raybould’s damning testimony and the honest image that resulted with the public. That may explain why she insisted on remaining a Liberal MP. Diefenbaker was also known for indecisiveness. The recession, an unpopular devaluation of the dollar, and cancellation of the Avro-Arrow fighter aircraft led to squandering his record majority by losing 92 seats in 1962. He won a minority only because of Western support. Once the effective Avro-Arrow fighter aircraft project was cancelled and 14,000 skilled jobs were lost

overnight, the United States wanted to place Bomarc missiles with nuclear warheads on Canadian soil. Diefenbaker delayed and delayed the decision. The delay caused a split in cabinet. Three cabinet ministers — Defence Minister Doug Harkness, his replacement Pierre Sevigny, Trade and Commerce Minister George Hees— resigned within days of each other, citing the Bomarc missile issue as their reason. Sevigny had other issues. His fling with a German prostitute who had Communist spy connections was exposed leading to headlines about life under the Conservatives. The lesson drawn from these two parallel situations is simple. Indecision is never a desirable trait for political leaders when the leader doesn’t get complete loyalty. In Diefenbaker’s case, indecision was a major factor in his government’s defeat. Political leadership requires going for the jugular when disputes threaten the future. There is no place for sunny ways when loyalty concerns arise. If Lester Pearson had had a more impressive presence in 1962, he would have put Diefenbaker in Opposition a year sooner. Some observers see Andrew Scheer’s lacklustre presence as similar to the Pearson experience. Ron Walter can be reached at

Local poet shortlisted for Sask Book Awards Larissa Kurz Robert Currie’s most recent publication, One-Way Ticket, has been shortlisted for the poetry award at this year’s Saskatchewan Book Awards, and he’s pleased to have made the exclusive list. “It feels exciting. There are a lot of good poetry books published in Saskatchewan this year, so it’s very nice to be shortlisted; I was happy,” said Currie. The collection is Currie’s longest book of poetry and features several sections, each with its own theme of sorts. Ranging from personal poems to those inspired by others, to some approaching the topic of life’s end, Currie’s book encompasses a range of topics. One section, called “Inspiration Everywhere,” is a collection of poems inspired by paintings and lines from other poems. “A few years ago, Gerry Hill was poet laureate in Saskatchewan, and he had this Poetry Month project where he would put on the website a line from another Saskatchewan poet and see if that prompted people to write poems,” said Currie. “And I think I did a half-a-dozen poems from that.” The poetry that Currie writes is meant for anyone to en-

I’m really interested in writing poetry that the general public will like if they read it, rather than just other poets. And I’ve really had some good feedback on it,” said Currie.

Currie’s published career started back when he was a kid, as he fondly remembers having a story of his published in the United Church magazine and all of his Sunday school peers excited to read something by someone they know. The influence that really drew him to poetry was Canadian poet Raymond Souster, who Currie discovered in university. “I discovered a little chapbook of his called When We Are Young. And the poems really spoke to me and I thought, ‘oh, I should try doing, that.’ So he was one real inspiration for writing poetry,” said Currie. Currie has been shortlisted for the Sask Book Awards several times but has never won, and is looking forward to attending the event on Apr. 27. “It’s fun to be there and it’s exciting to see who’s going to win the different awards,” said Currie. “Because most writers in Saskatchewan know maybe not all the other writers, but a lot of them, usually you’re seeing your friends go up there and collect their awards.” One-Way Ticket is available for purchase from Post Horizons Bookstore, on High St. W, or from online sellers such as Amazon.

South Hill Comm. Assoc. organizing park clean-up and annual South of the Bridge Scavenger Hunt The South Hill Community Association wants residents to come to beautify the southern part of the city and also discover some of its hidden gems at a pair of events later this summer. At their AGM, the association announced the annual South of the Bridge scavenger hunt will take place on June 8 and a community clean-up for Tatawaw Park – the recently re-named Wild Animal Park – on May 19 from 10 a.m. until noon.

Community Clean-up for Tatawaw Park – May 19th

“We’re asking anybody from all over the city who wants to come to help us start picking up litter and garbage,” said Crystal Froese from the South Hill Community Association. “We’re going to meet at the bottom of Seventh Avenue Southwest, just in front of the bridge. We’re going to supply gloves and garbage bags and have some refreshments there as well.” Froese is hoping that they can gather enough volunteers to clean the area from the bridge to the entrance of the old Wild Animal Park. The SHCA was part of the drive to re-name the park and they are

Matthew Gourlie hoping that now that Tatawaw Park has a name it can be a source of pride for South Hill and Moose Jaw as a whole. “That park hasn’t had any attention, but now that it has an official name, we can draw attention to it in multiple ways. One of them is to have community pride rally around it and clean things up,” Froese said. “The South Hill Community Association really wants to look at doing a ‘carry out what you carry in’ campaign for all At their AGM, the association anof the park.

– June 8th

The annual South of the Bridge scavenger hunt scheduled for June 8th will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot next to South Hill Fine Foods. The scavenger hunt is for any level of accessibility. There is a shorter hunt that is catered to smaller children who are in strollers and then there is an intermediate

course for kids and adults can walk or explore on bicycles that covers all of South Hill. “We had well over 100 kids last year, which was wonderful, kids biking and walking all over South Hill looking for the clues and having a great time that afternoon,” Froese said. “We’re a third of

the population over here on South Hill. There’s a lot of history here and there are a lot of really unique areas and cool little things in each of the little neighbourhoods that we have. There are a lot of people who don’t know that but they always come back and say ‘I didn’t know we had that over here.’” There will also be a heritage trolley tour of South Hill available for a donation and the Friendly City Optimist Club will be on hand to do a hot dog sale. There will also be music and a clown on hand. “We highlight the heritage of this side of the city with the trolley tours and then the scavenger hunt is to take people around different neighbourhoods and different fun, little landmarks that people may not know of,” Froese said. “There are lots of prizes and we’ll have different vendors there from South Hill, some businesses, some community organizations there as well to interact with people.” The Moose Jaw Police Service, the Moose Jaw Fire Department and Moose Jaw and District EMS will all be on hand as well to show off their vehicles to the kids.

Minor car problems which are not addressed tend to become major ones at the most inopportune time.  It isn’t hard to believe that most Canadians report not budgeting for vehicle repairs, so these surprise car troubles put them at risk of being stuck with a larger than necessary repair bill that they can’t afford. Avoid getting caught off guard – invest a little in a thorough inspection and basic maintenance now to avoid major damage, prepare finan-

cially for any upcoming maintenance, and ensure your vehicles safety and dependability. To help you remember to give your car a little extra TLC come spring time, Be Car Care Aware created  Car Care Month. Throughout the month of May, they use their website, blog, and social media channels to raise awareness about the importance of regular preventative maintenance  and encourage Canadians to take good care of their vehicles.  At Panda Tire and Auto we get involved by performing our exclusive CAA approved 75-point inspection to give you a great snapshot of your vehicles current condition and upcoming maintenance needs. We share this information by prioritizing maintenance and repairs and providing you with an electronic inspection including pictures, video and educational materials. Having your vehicle needs priori-

tized allows you to make informed and intelligent decisions. You have a choice between Brand Name or Economy parts depending on your budget and the warranty desired. About Be Car Care Aware The Be Car Care Aware  (BCCA) program was launched in Canada in 2004 by the Automotive  Industries Association of Canada, with the support of its sister program in the U.S. operated by the Car Care Council. This program promotes the benefits of regular vehicle maintenance and repairs by providing information, tools and resources to both the public and the automotive service and repair  industry.

From The Kitchen

Notice is hereby given that the assessment roll for the R.M. of Caron No. 162 for the year 2019 has been prepared and is open to inspection in the office of the assessor during office hours from 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon and from 1:00 p.m. to 4 p.m. on the following days: Monday to Friday, April 26, 2019 to May 27, 2019.

In the words of Fannie Farmer “it is the duty of every housekeeper to learn the art of soup making. “How may a hearty dinner be better begun than with a thin soup? The hot liquid, taken into an empty stomach, is easily assimilated, acts as a stimulant rather than as a nutrient (as is the popular opinion) and prepares the way for the meal which is to follow. “The cream soups and purees are so nutritious that, with bread and butter, they furnish a satisfactory meal,” Farmer taught in her 1896 cook book. This week’s recipes are for some of Fannie’s soups. ••• Brown Soup Stock 6 lb. shin of beef 3 quarts cold water 1/2 tsp. peppercorns 6 cloves 1/2 bay leaf 3 sprigs thyme 1 sprig majoram 2 sprigs parsley 1/2 cup turnip, diced 1/2 cup onion, diced 1/2 cup celery, diced 1 tbsp. salt Wipe beef and cut the lean meat in inch cubes. Brown 1/3 of the meat in a hot frying pan in marrow from a marrow bone. Put remaining 2/3 with bone and fat in soup kettle, add water and let stand for thirty minutes. Place on back of range, add browned meat and heat gradually to boiling point. As scum rises it should be removed. Cover and cook slowly for six hours, keeping below boiling point. Add vegetables and seasonings, cook 1 1/2 hours, strain and cool if not using immediately as soup. •••

A bylaw pursuant to Section 214 of The Municipalities Act has been passed and the assessment notices have been sent as required.

Inaugural tabletop gaming convention excited for next year Larissa Kurz

The first annual Level Up tabletop gaming convention was a rousing success, according to organizer Janice Lamb, and the team is already looking into the future for next year’s event. Around 30 students showed up for the day filled with role-playing games, card games, and even a virtual reality rig. The Dungeons & Dragons tables were among the most popular, as well as the Magic the Gathering tournaments and the facilitated board games stations. Lamb said the convention was pretty much at capacity in terms of what the facilitators could handle, and she was glad to see students from five high schools attend — although, for next year, she hopes to expand their reach and really get the other high schools in Moose Jaw involved. Also on the table is discussion of broadening the event; Lamb says there is talk about adding a video game component to next year’s convention, possibly with the help of the Moose Jaw Gamer’s Association. “We’re maybe looking into including some video games, expanding into there, and we’ve got the Moose Jaw Gamer’s Association has really been helpful with that, with helping us out,” said Lamb. “So I know that through them, we’ll be able to get some more support to make that happen.”

have their own days.” She also mentioned plans for more smaller events throughout the year, for playing tabletop games on a more casual basis, and to keep checking the website for updates. The success of this year’s Level Up has bolstered Lamb’s excitement to keep engaging the tabletop community. “We had lots of really great enthusiasm, everyone who was there had a fantastic time, including the volunteers,” said Lamb. “I had a great day and we’re looking forward to doing it again and just making it bigger and better.” Cosplayers at Level Up 2019! (supplied) Although no plans to lengthen the event into a whole weekend are in the future, there is interest in planning a second convention next year, this time for a younger age bracket. “The one day [format] I think worked really well. What we’d like to do in the future is we’d like to make another separate day and have like the middle school age,” said Lamb. “[We would] bring the enrollment [age] down to like the middle school and include them, but just on a separate day because the high school students like to

Tim McLeod named Sask Party candidate for Moose Jaw North Local lawyer, school board trustee to succeed longtime MLA Warren Michelson Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Saskatchewan Party’s candidate Tim McLeod was named the nominee for Moose Jaw North by acclamation during their nomination meeting Monday at the Heritage Inn. The meeting was all but a formality, as McLeod had declared his intent to seek the position late last year and no other candidates stepped forward to take on the challenge. “It’s nice that I didn’t have to run a campaign for the nomination and I’m honoured to be the candidate that people in Moose Jaw North selected,” McLeod said shortly after officially accepting the honour. “Right now, I just want to get out on people’s doorsteps and introduce myself and hear from them, what their interests are and what their concerns are.” McLeod – a partner at the local law firm Chow & McLeod Barristers and Solicitors – will succeed long-time Moose Jaw North MLA Warren Michelson and brings with him a wealth of public experience not only working with Michelson’s executive but also as a trustee with the Prairie South School Division, most recently as the board chair. “I think my profession naturally lends itself well to representing people, and I’ve spent 10 years on Warren’s Moose Jaw North Sask. Party constituency board, so just watching the work that transpires and representing people, it seemed like a nat-

the school board… I don’t think I could have hand-picked a better candidate and I’m very pleased that he’s running.” With the election more than a year and a half away on Nov. 2, 2020, there’s plenty of time to put plans in motion and develop a platform – but McLeod is keenly aware of the work that’s going to involve given his time with Michelson’s campaign in the past. “I’m certainly not taking anything for granted at this point,” McLeod said. “We’re going to have to run a campaign, there’s a lot of doors to knock and a lot of people to meet, but if I’m fortunate enough to be elected I certainly am excited to be in the Legislature and work hard for Premier Moe.”

ural fit,” McLeod said. It certainly doesn’t hurt that he’s taking over from an MLA with a wealth of experience and a track record of impressive success representing his constituents. “I think Warren did a fantastic job of building a profile for the Sask Party in Moose Jaw North and I’m anxious and excited to have the opportunity to try and carry the torch and build on what he’s worked so hard to establish,” McLeod said. Michelson himself is more than happy to see such a strong candidate take over as his successor. He’s retiring from politics

Knowing the Gap That Affects Your Health by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor Bed rest and neck braces. I am still amazed that there are some back-pain sufferers who attempt these out-dated treatments for uncomplicated spinal pain. I am even more surprised to find out that their doctor has recommended these interventions that were deemed inappropriate more than 2 decades ago. Sometimes, even when the knowledge is there, actions are not taken, and old habits stay at the forefront. This is referred to as the “know-do gap”. In health care, the know-do gap exists in full force. Studies tell us that it takes 17 years, on average, for 14 percent of research to translate into practice. Seventeen years!!!

after his term ends next year. “Tim was very gracious about it, he came to me about a year ago and said ‘Warren, I’m interested and if you’re running again, I’m not. But when you’re ready let me know,’” Michelson said. “So we had a good conversation and it seemed that for me, in the back of my mind, this would be my final term… It’s been a great run; I appreciate it and the support I’ve had, and it’s a good feeling to pass it over to someone like Tim who has very in-depth interest in it. “He has a high profile in the community; he’s very knowledgeable, the president of

In my corner of the health care world, where spinal pain is the predominant complaint of most chiropractic patients, the idea of manual therapy and exercise as treatment tends to be the final choice for patients after medications have failed. The know-do gap is wide, and continues to grow, as patients often leave their doctors’ offices with a prescription rather than a referral for manual therapy or a list of exercise recommendations. Clinical practice guidelines are recommendations that optimize patient care. They are (or they should be) based on the most recent and available evidence. Unfortunately, as the know-do gap is showing, implementing what we know into practice is slow, and sometimes never gets done at all. Did you know that more and more research is telling us that it may be wrong to put ice on new muscle strains and joint sprains, and that the application of heat may be more beneficial? For decades, if not longer, every single health care worker learned about RICE for acute injuries. Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation-RICE. Research is beginning to tell us that this may not be the best intervention. Changing this habit may take generations, if it even happens at all.

Change in clinical practice may take years to implement when the change may dramatically affect current health care stakeholders. Back pain is the second most common reason for a visit to the doctor, yet research tells us manual therapy and exercise is the best medicine. Nurse practitioners are proving to be of increasing value in delivering primary care. Even pharmacists are taking over some duties traditionally dedicated to primary care physicians. Health care policy change cannot not occur quickly when manpower is not there for the demand. It would take years, if not decades, to train enough nurse practitioners and pharmacists for effective primary care management. If all back-pain sufferers immediately adopted research recommendations, wait times would dramatically increase for chiropractors, massage therapists, physiotherapists and acupuncturists. The manpower, and government funds, are just not there at the moment. Effective health care depends greatly on implementing what we know to be right, even when there is conflict with tradition and philosophical ideas. Now, if I can just close the know-do gap with my relationship with potato chips.

Provincial Court

Bail hearing set for man accused of stealing truck Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

A bail hearing has been set for Darren Blair McNabb, who is accused of stealing a truck and failing to stop while being pursued by police. McNabb, 22, appeared in Moose Jaw provincial court by video from Regina on April 17. The Crown was opposed to his release and he was remanded back into custody.

McNabb’s charges stem from an incident on Feb. 14 in Moose Jaw, said Judge Brian Hendrickson while recounting the offences. McNabb is accused of stealing a 2004 F-150 truck with a value of less than $5,000; possessing property obtained by crime; and operating a motor vehicle and failing to stop for police while being pursued.

Elks seek chefs for chili challenge

St. Margaret’s Dinner Theatre expands this year

Larissa Kurz Once again, the Father Lawless Knights of Columbus and St. Margaret School are hosting their fifth annual dinner theatre, and due to so much interest from students to get involved, the evening will see two smaller plays performed rather than one. The theme this year seems to be mystery and murder, although there’s no mystery about the hard work those involved have been putting into the show. With two directors, stage managers, and crewmembers, the show has seen a number of hands in- Theatre curtains: (Shutterstock) volved. The first play, directed by Colette Curtis, is called Mystery on 13th Street and tells the story of a group of kids spooked by mysterious disappearances, leaving them wondering if the rumors about the mad scientist who turns kids into cats might actually be true. Murder at the Maltshop, directed by Cheryl Gagnon, is slightly darker — when a local with a number of enemies is found dead after a short blackout at Sprout’s Malt Shop, it becomes the sheriff’s job to determine who might have been responsible out of a cast of zany characters. The backdrops for this year’s shows, as always, were built by members of the Knights, and the shows will be taking place on May 10, with supper beginning at 6pm and the show at 7pm. Tickets are $25, available by calling St. Joseph’s Church at (306) 694-1944.

A legal aid lawyer from Regina is handling McNabb’s charges, said Crown prosecutor Rob Parker. His office gave disclosure to the Regina lawyer on April 12. Hendrickson then agreed to set McNabb’s bail hearing for Wednesday, April 24, to determine if he will be released from custody. McNabb will appear by video from Regina.

Three Moose Jaw Junior Level Athletes headed to Cheerleading Championships in Florida For the first time ever, local athletes from Saskatchewan will be going to The Summit All Star Cheerleading Championships in Orlando, Florida. Three Moose Jaw female athletes on a Junior Level 3 team from Rebels Cheerleading Athletics in Regina just won an opportunity of a lifetime. After 2 days of competing, the team walked away with an all-time season high score of 96.1 and 6th place of 6 teams in their division. All athletes, coaches, and parents celebrated an amazing wrap up to the season. So they

thought... Coaches Tiffany, Cameo, and club owner/ coach Eric soon found out the girls achieved way more. The team placed in the top 20 of over 120 teams therefore receiving 1 of 6 bid invitations given out. The coaches and parents did a team reveal at the next Thursday practice. At first there was mass confusion, but it shortly turned into pure joy cries of excitement, hugs, and yelling… “We’re going to Summit!” and “We’re going to Disney World!” Adison Morhart “absolutely loves cheer” and has been in cheer 2 years. Kendall Robinson says “it’s her all time favorite sport and is looking forward to cheer being in the Olympics” and has been in cheer 6 years. Tia Cathcart said, “Cheer is a great way to make friends and it gives me confidence” and has been in cheer 7 years. Moose Jaw, Regina, and Saskatchewan will be represented skillfully by these 3 young girls and their team. Showdown on May 4th 2019 and televised by ESPN.

Homan, Sheets to headline Optimist All-Star Night Fundraising event May 25 supporting local charity Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Friendly City Optimist Club of Moose Jaw will be hosting a pair of high-profile sports luminaries from the present and past for a special fundraising event. Perennial Scotties Tournament of Heart competitor and Canadian Olympian Rachel Homan will be joined by former Saskatchewan Roughriders running back and Grey Cup 2013 hero Kory Sheets for the Optimist All-Star Night on Saturday, May 25 at the Cosmo Seniors Centre. “It’ll be a star-studded affair, there are going to be lots of opportunities for silent auction items and of course a great meal and drinks if you so choose,” said event organizer Joe Gunnis with EMJ Marketing. “Basically, it’ll be Kory Sheets’ first night back up in Saskatchewan for a sports dinner, so the Optimists are excited for that and Rachel will be here, with the 2020 Scotties coming up, it’s a way for people to see her and all the accomplishments she’s had in her career.” Homan’s appearance could almost be considered a scouting trip at this point, given her level of success and the women’s national curling championship taking place at Mosaic Place next spring. It’s a rare opportunity to meet a Canadian Olympian, said Gunnis, especially given her playing and training schedule

“With players like her, the short window of the season keeps them pretty busy and not able to travel as much to these events,” he added. “It’s really great for her to be able to come out and talk to everybody, she has great stories to tell and obviously she’s been all over the world curling and the other side of the non-curling

things, what she’s up to when she’s not the ice.” Sheets needs no introduction to Roughrider fans, as his 197-yard rushing performance in the 2013 Grey Cup propelled Saskatchewan to their fourth CFL championship. “Obviously everybody remembers him from the Grey Cup and his dominant performance in that game,” Gunnis said. “And there are many other stories throughout his career and community things that he did when he was up here, so he’s looking forward to coming back and being able to reconnect with everyone in Saskatchewan.” The All-Star Night will also feature a silent auction with a wide variety of memorabilia and items up for bid, including a Scotties ticket package. “The biggest thing is all proceeds from the event are staying in Moose Jaw and going to the Optimist Club for projects throughout the city,” Gunnis said. Tickets are $75 each or $600 for a table of eight. Cocktails are 6 p.m., supper at 7 p.m. and the program begins at 8 p.m. To purchase tickets or for more information contact Gord Currie at 306-631-9835 or purchase online at

Warriors Tracey vaults up NHL Central Scouting rankings Tribe rookie ranked 21st overall, Moose Jaw product Newkirk at 81st Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Tearing up the Western Hockey League as a rookie and finishing the regular season nearly 20 points ahead of the nearest rival in first-year scoring attracted attention from

National Hockey League scouts. Moose Jaw Warriors forward Brayden Tracey is now listed 21st overall among North American skaters in the NHL Central Scouting final rankings released last week. It marked a dramatic jump in the rankings for the soonto-turn 18 product of Calgary, who vaulted 52 spots from 73rd after scoring 36 goals and 81 points while playing on the highest scoring line in the Canadian Hockey League alongside Tristin Langan and Justin Almeida. What that translates into during the Draft June 21-22 in Vancouver is yet to be seen, but precedent indicates an early second round pick – the 21st ranked skater in 2018, Mattias Samuelsson, ended up going to the Buffalo Sabres as the first pick in the second round, 32nd overall.

Tracey isn’t the only player of interest to Moose Jaw hockey fans listed, as Reece Newkirk of the Portland Winterhawks came in at 81st overall. The 18-year-old Moose Jaw Minor Hockey product scored 23 goals and 59 points in 68 games this season, his second with the Winterhawks. While the 81st ranked player in the 2018 Draft, Vladislav Kotkov, went undrafted, the 80th overall, Riley Sutter, was selected in the third round 93rd overall and the 82nd ranked player, Semyon Der-Arguchintsev, vaulted up to third round 76th overall. Former Warrior and current Brandon Wheat King standout Luka Burzan returned to the Central Scouting rankings at 126th overall.

Midget Mustangs take first place in Swift Current tournament Defending South Sask league champions off to solid start in new campaign Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Midget Mustangs couldn’t have scripted a better start to their season. The defending South Saskatchewan Lacrosse League champions might have a bit of a different line-up from their 2018 squad, but the results were still the same as they won three straight games on their way to a tournament championship in Swift Current over the weekend of April 13th. The Mustangs opened the event with a 5-1 win over the Swift Current Rampage before downing the Estevan Voltz 5-1 in their second round robin game. That put them through to the semifinal, where the Weyburn Thrashers opted to forfeit, leading to the championship game where Moose Jaw rolled to a 9-4 win over the Voltz to take first place. Mustangs 5, Swift Current 1 The Mustangs spread out their scoring in their first game while showing off their defensive chops at the same time.

The Moose Jaw Midget Mustangs returned to the floor in style with a tournament win in Swift Current. Caelan Fitzpatrick, Brydon Bell, Kirk Mullen, Ethan Johnson and Blake Butler all had single markers. Moose Jaw led 2-1 after the first and 3-1 through two. Bryden Kerr was in goal throughout the

weekend. Mustangs 5, Estevan 1 Kael Nichols scored twice as the Mustangs finished first in their pool and advanced to the title game.

Kayde Shymko, Jake Williams and Max Coulson scored their other goals, with the Mustangs holding a 2-0 edge after the first and leading 3-1 through two. Mustangs 9, Estevan 4 The first-place game was much higher scoring than the previous contests, but the end result was the same.

The Mustangs led 3-2 after the first before expanding their lead to 6-2 through two.

Invitational Dance Carnival caps off another successful show

Close to 900 dancers from all over province take part in 35th annual Dance Images by B.J., Denee School of Dance event Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Four days. Close to 900 dancers. More talent than you would expect and everyone doing their absolute best to be their best. The 35th annual Invitational Dance Carnival – hosted by Dance Images by B.J. and Denee School of Dance – wrapped up on April 14th with their final slate of performances, capping off a busy week of action that saw plenty of young dancers showing off their skills in front of the judges. “It absolutely is a lot of hard work, but it’s absolutely worth it to give this opportunity to all the dancers,” said Barb Jackman, the ‘B.J.’ in Dance Images by B.J. “There are lots of competitions around in this area this weekend, so really, we’re always grateful that people support the carnival and come on out. There’s a lot of camaraderie and support and I think that’s what makes our competition also desirable for others.”

Dancers from Pilot Butte’s Dance Sensations by Desire school perform their ‘The Diner’ routine in the Novice Small Tap Group age 9-11 years division. A total of 14 studios from all corners of the province took part in the show, which featured dancers in a wide range of disciplines, from ballet to hip hop, tap to contemporary and everything in between. Competitors took to the Peacock Collegiate stage in solos, trios and full group dance numbers, each the culmination of hours of practice and dedication designed to put their best foot forward when the time came. “It was great,” Jackman said when asked about the calibre of competition she saw on the weekend. “Children are allowed to compete at their own level, so if you’re a younger dancer just starting, you wouldn’t have to compete against those older kids who have been dancing all along. So it gives everybody an opportunity to be successful and show what they know. “Then there’s a lot of camaraderie between the teachers, the audience, every-

one is very supportive so everyone can do their very best job.” Adjudicators for the show were Irene Booth, a certified Ballet and Modern dance examiner from Nanaimo, B.C., who worked alongside Professional Adjudication Alliance-certified Nola Antony from

Planning for the Carnival began essentially when the 34th annual show ended, with work in earnest starting in the fall. “We run with almost 100 volunteers, they come from the two host studios, Dance Images by BJ and the Denee School of Dance, and it takes a pretty big team,” Jackman said. “It is day four, though, so we’re happy. We lived to tell about it,” she added with a laugh before admitting that work on year 36 is already underway. “It’s already starting to be planned; you have to be way ahead in the dance world to be on top of everything.” Be sure to check back often for a rundown of award winners from the event.

Kidsport continuing support of local athletes

Sports charity organization give youngsters a chance to be active regardless of financial situation Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

It’s an unfortunate fact that many youngsters in Moose Jaw and throughout Saskatchewan simply don’t have an opportunity to play sports in spite of their love of the game or desire to because of their family financial situation. Kidsport gives that opportunity, as the Canada-wide children’s charity helps those with financial difficulties participate in community sport. Their motto? So all kids can play. “Everything we do is local and we strongly believe that what we do is important; we’re helping kids get enrolled in organized sports in Moose Jaw where they or their family might not be able to afford it,” said Moose Jaw Kidsport committee chair John Eberl. “So it’s important not just for kids and their family, it’s important for sporting organizations too.” That’s a factor that sometimes might get missed – sports organizations in the city are always looking for new players to fill their rosters, and Kidsport has helped immensely in that regard over the years. “Back when I was involved in Little League and coaching my son, we’d try to get players as much playing time as possible, so we’d have 10 or 11 players on the house teams,” Eberl explained. “Well, without Kidsport putting some of those kids in there, you’re going to have a lot fewer teams and a lot less opportunities. So, it’s important in that sense too.” Kidsport Moose Jaw annually has around 250 applicants and has the capacity to serve around 200. In 2018, the organization served 193 kids, spending $43,186 on registration fees to help them play their chosen game. “With single parents, some of the new families who don’t have a cash flow situation going properly yet, if they can’t enroll their kids in soccer they’d just be sitting around on their phones or whatever if it wasn’t for Kidsport in a lot of cases,” Eberl said. “So this gives them a chance to be active,

be with their friends and enjoy themselves. “It can be a one week swimming lesson for $60 or some of the soccer programs are as low as $99 for a 12-week program and that’s pretty reasonable where we’re happy to help as much as we can.” As could be expected, sending that kind of money out into the community doesn’t come without plenty of fundraising. Kidsport Saskatchewan provides a substantial amount towards the local organization, with everything above and beyond coming from donations. “We rely on the Kidsport Saskatchewan allocation, but we raise an equal amount locally through groups like the Kinsmen who have been on board for $5,000 every year for the past seven years. That’s huge for us,” Eberl said. Helping matters is the fact the organization works with little overhead, with donations from local businesses and the occasional roll of stamps essentially their entire costs. “We want the money to go into Kidsport and that’s the most important thing,” Eberl said. Anyone looking for more information or to apply for support can check out moose-jaw/ for application for assistance and donation links as well as other info about the local organization.

A new Kidsport-related event is on the horizon. The local children’s charity organization is currently in the early stages of putting together the first Kayak for Kidsport, set to take place Sunday, July 14 at the Kiwanis Pavillion and Boat Launch. The event is aimed at exposing as many people as possible to the sports of canoeing and kayaking, all with the aim of getting exercise, having fun on the water and supporting the local KidSport committee at the same time. A free breakfast will be held for all registered participants, with prizes to be won just for taking part and a corporate challenge event also planned. A registration fee of around $20 is planned, with all proceeds going back to Kidsport. All levels of skill are welcome, with a safety and correct paddling technique demonstration taking place before the event. The committee will have a wide selection of canoes and kayaks available for low to no cost. All proceeds from Kayak for Kidsport will go to the local organization.

Nimegeers, Team Draft Day close out World Selects Invitational appearance Under-14 all-star girls hockey team falls in quarter-final in Chamonix, France tourney Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw Mavericks standout Brooklyn Nimegeers had the experience of a lifetime at the World Selects Invitational. Taking the ice in Chamonix, France with Team Draft Day North America in the Under-14 girls tournament, Nimegeers and her teammates won their final round robin game Friday 3-2 over Germany before dropping a 3-0 decision to the East Coast Selects in their quarter-final playoff contest. Against Germany, Nimegeers – who scored 49 goals and 63 points in only 10 games this past season with the Mavericks – found herself in a rare situation: actually trailing a game after the first

period. There on Draft Day, they were down 2-0 after the first and needing a major turnaround to get back into the game. After being outshot 12-8 in the first period, North America turned up the pressure in the second, outshooting Germany 19-4 and rallying with three goals to record the comeback. Nimegeers had an impact, too, as she and Mississauga’s Mackenzie Alexander scored 39 seconds apart early in the second to tie the game, with Nimegeers’ marker knotting the score at 2-2 4:33 into the frame. That set the stage for Leaside, Ont.’s Hilary Whiddon a little over two minutes later

Prairie Pedals offering unique mountain biking experience for women

Ladies-only group all about fun, encouragement and confidence while riding trails of Wakamow Valley Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

What started as an idea at a Saskatchewan Cycling Association meeting and led to informal rides last summer has turned into a unique women’s-only mountain biking group in Moose Jaw. The Prairie Pedals – part of the Moose Jaw Pavers cycling club – held their first official group ride a week ago, and according to one of the group’s founders, Laurie Ewen, things are already a surprising success. “We had six people out last week, that was very surprising since we didn’t know how this would go,” Ewen said. “We’re out there on Monday at 9:15 a.m., after the kids are off to school. So we’re kind of focussed right now on those moms with school kids and we’re hoping to expand more to include other women at other stages in their lives. “Everyone is welcome, we have a grandma there, people who are working shift work and can make it out, anyone who wants to ride the trails in Wakamow.” The genesis of the group was an SCA meeting where conversation turned to how few women were involved in the sport in the province, Moose Jaw included. That let to Ewen putting together a plan with another Pavers rider, Jenn Gauthier, and the Prairie Pedals came to fruition. “We looked at the psychological side of what was stopping women from cycling

Riders in the Moose Jaw Pavers Prairie Pedals all-women riding group pause for a photo on the Wakamow Valley trails. Facebook photo and a lot of it was confidence and that nurturing side of it, where we’re always there for the kids but we’re worried too much what everyone else is doing but not enough about ourselves,” Ewen said. “So this was a something to fix that and get people out doing something fun and enjoyable.” The rides are completely low pressure, with the focus on fun and enjoyment more than putting down times and any kind of racing. In fact, the whole idea is to stick together as a group for maximum encouragement. “We have a lot of fun with it,” Ewen said.

“It’s a no-drop ride, Jenn is generally the leader and I’m the sweeper, so if someone is going a bit slower or there’s a problem with their bike, they don’t have to worry if the group is going to get a little bit ahead. Plus there’s a bike check at the start to make sure everything is safe and in order.” Gauthier’s knowledge of Wakamow trails was a key part of the first ride, as she was able to offer advice to the less experienced cyclists with regards to upcoming hills and more technical challenges, what gear the rider’s bike should be in and whatever other information she could pass along

through the ride, which will generally take around 60 to 90 minutes. “We’re always chatting and it’s very social and at the end of the ride you can see the confidence in that ‘I did that’,” Ewen said. “It’s just so important to build that confidence; they can take that the rest of the day or the rest of the week and just go with it. So it’s not just the physical health, it’s the mental health.” While the Prairie Pedals are focussed on the beginner rider, all levels of skill and ability are welcome and the ride will be shortened or lengthened to accommodate levels of fitness. All ride participants must wear a helmet and bring water, snacks and have a bike in good working order. The Pavers recommend a mountain bike, but the level of riding will be suitable for a hybrid cycle. Because the event is directly affiliated with the Pavers club, insurance requires the majority of participants to be club members, although non-members are welcome to try out three club rides per year. They simply have to fill out a non-member waiver and they’re good to go. Riders meet every Monday at 9:15 a.m. at the bottom of 7th Avenue in Wakamow Valley.

Forward Brayden Tracey and defenceman Daemon Hunt are in action for Team Canada at the 12-team event, while Yegor Buyalski is taking the ice for Team Belarus. Both squads got their tournaments off to solid starts, as Canada won their first three round robin games 5-3 over Finland, 7-4 over Switzerland and 11-1 over Belarus, while Belarus surprised the Czech Republic and Finland with a pair of 4-3 wins before their loss to Canada. Tracey played a key role in Canada’s first two games, scoring the game-winning goal in each of the contests. Against Finland – the defending gold medalists at the event – Tracey capped off a Canada comeback from a 3-0 deficit with the game-tying goal 3:57 into the third period before adding the game-winner with 5:29 remaining in the game. The Eastern Conference rookie-of-the-year nominee was back at it the next night against the Swiss as Canada found themselves on the other side of a comeback, this time losing a 3-0 first period lead. Tracey had a goal and an assist in the opening frame and would break a 3-3 tie with the eventual game-winner 5:38 into the third.

Provincial Court

Community service given to resident for breaching court order By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

Tenyka Jade McBride will have to complete 20 hours of community service and obey her probation orders after pleading guilty to disobeying previous court instructions. McBride, 21, appeared in Moose Jaw provincial court on April 22. She pleaded guilty to breaching an undertaking without lawful excuse by contacting her partner when she was prohibited from doing so. Judge Brian Hendrickson informed McBride there would be no trial since she was pleading guilty. This also meant she would receive her sentence that day. He pointed out pleading guilty could lead to her having a criminal record, which might make it difficult for her to travel outside

of Canada. McBride said she understood. She also acknowledged that she was pleading guilty voluntarily and making this decision of her own free will. McBride was placed on an undertaking on March 10, 2018, with conditions that included having no contact with her partner or being near his house, explained Crown prosecutor Robbie Parker. He could not say why this condition had been given since he did not have information about her previous offence on hand. Moose Jaw police were called to a residence on Feb. 25, 2019 at 4:45 p.m. for a report of a domestic dispute, he continued. The investigation revealed McBride and her partner had become physically vi-

olent toward each other. While an assault charge was laid, the Crown later stayed that offence. “The Crown came to the determination that it was more likely … a consensual physical altercation as opposed to assault,” Parker said. Parker recommended that McBride be given a conditional discharge with three months of probation. She would have to keep the peace and be of good behaviour, report to a probation officer, live at an approved residence and complete 20 hours of community service in three months. A conditional discharge means a person’s record is kept on file up to three years. It can then be automatically removed after one or three years, based on the type of

discharge. Judge Hendrickson wondered if an absolute discharge would be more appropriate. Parker replied that that was not possible, since the Crown believed this breach was a violation of a court order. A conditional discharge would send an appropriate message. Hendrickson accepted McBride’s guilty plea and the Crown’s recommendation. He acknowledged that while it’s important to not have a criminal record, a punishment was needed to ensure there was “some sting with non-compliance with a court order.” “This recommendation … is an appropriate disposition,” he added.

Klassen appears in court to address noise-related charges Larissa Kurz Kyra Klassen, owner of Dance Fitness with Kyra and the subject of a media storm over noise bylaws, appeared in court this morning to face seven noise-related charges. Counsel agreed to a joint submission, withdrawing six of the tickets and entering only one noise infraction, to which Klassen pleaded guilty. Judge Brian Hendrickson charged Klassen with a $200 fine, as mandated by legislation guidelines, and gave her 60 days to pay the full amount. Representative of the defendant Talon Regent said the withdrawals were made as a compromise for both his client and the city; the cost to both parties to run seven trials seemed unnecessary in terms of money and time, and this result allows both parties to move forward. “I’m glad that it’s over and I’m able to move forward. I’m happy a compromise was able to come about for both parties,” said Klassen. “I’m thankful to be able

to put a new foot forward, start fresh, and get back to doing what I love doing.” The tickets are the result of public complaints from Canadian musician Burton Cummings, which Klassen, despite attempts to soundproof her walls and

keep the volume down, was unable to resolve. Cummings even took the issue to city council, prompting the City to agree to look into altering bylaws regarding the activity in mixed-use commercial and residential zones, but has made no public statement regarding the dispute. The fitness studio is currently located in a joint commercial and residential location, on High Street West, and due to the conflict, Klassen is moving her business at the end of April to a new location at 244 River Street. The new studio will be larger and is neighboured by industrial buildings. Klassen hopes the move will leave this controversy behind her, concluding the very public issue and allowing her to continue with her business. “I’m just thankful for the support of the community, and I’m very much looking forward to getting back to serving them,” said Klassen.

New composting service picks up kitchen scraps By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

A pot of compost rested on one vendor’s table at the Cosmo Seniors spring trade show. The table from Mich’d Greens (pronounced Mixed Greens) promoted a recently-opened business by full-time Prince Arthur School teacher Michael Lewchuk. Lewchuk’s service supplies small plastic or stainless-steel compost bins for customers to save their organic scraps. He picks up the material once a week. “I’ve been going since July,” he said. “It’s slow but steady.” He has been composting for about five years. “I want to do anything I can to make the planet better.” The composting process saves landfill space and “I hear our landfill is in some trouble.” Composting provides top notch soil conditioner for plant and garden growth that helps retain soil moisture, breaks down heavy clay and binds sandy soils. The collected dark and green organic material is placed in bins and mixed to decompose into the end product. “I use heat-treated pallets for the bins so I can re-use materials.” The Mich’d Greens brand of compost is a “hot compost.” To get maximum benefit from the compost Lewchuk turns material in the bins regularly so the micro-organisms breaking down the green nitrogen and dark carbon matter work more efficiently building better nutrient compost. That Composter builds up heat as the matter breaks down. “It reaches a temperature of between 125 degrees Fahrenheit and 175 Fahrenheit.” The composting process takes about a year to complete before he can sell the compost in bags or pots. Lewchuk estimates compost volume is about 70 per cent of the volume originally placed in the bins. The spring trade show exhibits spotlighted a range of interests from personal care products to baking, clothes, jewelry and woodwork. The concession menu included awesome lemon meringue pie and apple pie. Ron Walter can be reached at

Temporary roof for Paris cathedral to cost hundreds of millions, says expert By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

Damage at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is mercifully less than expected, but it will still cost millions of dollars for even a temporary roof repair, says a heritage expert. A fire ripped through the 850-year-old Gothic cathedral on April 15, destroying the wooden roof and towering spire, while damaging the historic artifacts inside. Renovation work on the UNESCO World Heritage Site monument is suspected to have caused the blaze. “It is not as bad as (we) might have feared,” said Rod Stutt, president of the Architectural Heritage Society of Saskatchewan and program head of the architectural program at Saskatchewan Polytechnic. There are two roofs on the cathedral. The outside roof is made of wood and is what was destroyed. Inside is a secondary roof made of stone. That stone vault remained intact and protected many of the artifacts and furniture below. Furthermore, stone does not burn when engulfed in fire, but it does crack, said Stutt. The shell of the building will have to be checked for damage. Yet, the fact firefighters extinguished the blaze before it reached the two stone towers means the cathedral’s shell could exist for another couple of centuries. In the short-term, there will be smoke and water damage to the artifacts. It will take at least 40 years and millions of dollars to restore paintings and other items. However, Stutt says the roofs should be the easiest parts to rebuild. “It is a building that is important to the French identity and European identity,” he said. “It drew people together when they realized what was being lost. It brought a

(Photo: shared sense of national mourning and national purpose. “That’s positive.” What disappoints Stutt is seeing a heritage building crumble due to neglect or people not understanding its worth. However, he thinks it’s great to see the world rallying around the cathedral; the fact C$1 billion was raised in less than two days shows people care about Notre Dame. The cathedral’s shell was built of stone because that’s how churches were built nearly 1,000 years ago, ex-


plained Stutt. Fires used to ravage wood structures, so the builders constructed Notre Dame using stone so it would survive something like this. Architects will probably use a metal frame to re-build the roof, while other modern features such as sprinklers will also be installed, he said. The roof will look the same on the outside, while visitors will still see the stone vault ceiling inside. “They could easily substitute new materials and few people would know the difference,” he added. The estimation that it will cost billions of Euros to repair the entire building sounds right, Stutt said. But a temporary roof that takes five years to build and lasts 10 years could cost hundreds of millions of dollars and be a better solution. Notre Dame — along with other European cathedrals — has survived much worse, Stutt pointed out. The monument survived the French Revolution, the Napoleonic Wars and two World Wars. The cathedral in Cologne, Germany, for example, was destroyed during the Second World War. However, nearly 80 years later, it has been rebuilt. Many of the items inside Notre Dame that were destroyed — including the wooden spire on the roof — date back to only the 1840s, when the cathedral was undergoing restoration, Stutt added. There are artifacts from that time period that could be used to replicate similar pieces from inside. Parisian authorities are still investigating the fire.

Animal sanctuary holding fundraiser to help buy supplies for animals By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter Free To Be Me Animal Sanctuary is holding a garage sale on April 27 to help raise funds after a colder than usual winter depleted many of its supplies. Running from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the animal sanctuary farm, the garage sale is selling just about everything, along with big ticket items such as a Roomba, explained owner Louanne Shopshire. Many of the items are high quality, including office furniture, crafts, needlework, picture frames, vases, small televisions, a boot rack, children’s toys, a mini trampoline, beverage dispenser, a block heater and books. There will also be a lemonade stand on site, plus cupcakes and cookies for sale. There will not be any guided tours of the farm, but for a small donation visitors can view the animals from the fence. Shropshire’s daughter, Melissa Pearce, is co-ordinating the garage sale. “We’re busy trying to clean up and get things ready,” Shropshire said. Donations can still be submitted for the garage sale, she continued, but the items must work and be in a good, gently used condition. This is the first time Free To Be Me Animal Sanctuary has held such a garage sale, but it could turn into an annual event depending upon how it goes, said Shropshire. All of the funds raised go directly to supporting the an-

This past winter depleted much of Free To Be Me’s feed supplies, so those need to be topped up. Furthermore, the organization recently received two new calves that have to be fed with milk replacer. The two animals must be fed with this food source for at least four months. “We are not using any of this money for ourselves,” Shropshire added.

Long-time pro-life volunteer optimistic about the movement’s future By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

As Cathy Marr retires as a volunteer with Moose Jaw Right to Life after 45 years, she believes people — especially youths — are more aware of the need to protect life. “I think there are a lot of younger people who have really grasped this and are just so sincere in doing something about (ending abortion). I am really impressed with the younger people,” said Marr, 87, who decided to retire since she thought the time was right. About 20 supporters and board members of Moose Jaw Right to Life honoured Marr by holding a celebratory supper on April 11. The organization will miss Marr greatly, said Ron Hardy, board vice-president. Marr has been a mainstay and pillar for many years. Her faithfulness in attending every pro-life event stands out. Marr is an inspiration and is rarely discouraged, added board president Jean Landry. It’s easy to become dissuaded as a volunteer organization, especially since fewer people volunteer today. However, Marr brought optimism and hope to her work. Marr believes in the cause of protecting unborn life, she explained. She believes in the ethic of life beginning at conception and ending at natural death. While her Christian faith is a factor in this outlook, she also thinks she would still hold the same views even if she wasn’t a Christian. “I would still believe that abortion is killing a future citizen of the world, (one) with great potential and a right to believe in being born … ,” she Cathy Marr has retired as volunteer said. “I oftentimes think, when people can’t reason that way, it boggles with Moose Jaw Right to Life after 45 years with the organization.

Many people can’t believe that an unborn child growing in its mother’s uterus is another human being. “They think it is a blob of tissue, and it isn’t,” she added. Marr was “greatly, greatly disappointed” to hear that 81 per cent of Saskatchewan residents supposedly believe abortion is acceptable, according to a recent story in daily newspaper. However, she thinks pro-life people should never give up and should pray that hearts and minds 60 Athabasca Street East would one day believe in the beautiful gift of life. 306-692-0533 Minister: Rev. 277 Jim Iroquois TenfordSt W To hear the birds singing, to see green grass growing Music Director: Karen and to enjoy the arrival of spring are activities only peoMoosePurdy Jaw, SK ple alive can experience, Marr said.

St. Andrew’s United Church

On the Front Porch by Wanda Smith

At a conference a few years ago, I went up for prayer at the end of one of the services. I remember how I was feeling; sad and hopeless in a situation I was in at the time. I expected the speaker to speak encouragement into my heart and tell me to keep my chin up. I found myself hearing words something like this: “Wanda, there are promises pouring all over you right now but it’s like you are holding an umbrella over you and those promises are falling to the wayside”. I left feeling somewhat hurt and disappointed because I didn’t really get what I had gone for... encouragement and maybe even empathy. I’ve thought of that word from time to time through challenges I’ve faced since then. I don’t think there is any harm in desiring to be encouraged when going through the valleys, yet the temptation may be to wish for someone to join our pity party or even more, the temptation to fall to the comfort of men rather than going straight to God with our feelings. The writer of the Psalms, David, was possibly struggling with the same emotions I have from time to time. As he spent hours with the sheep, there was no one there except God to lean on. He had to even fight a bear and a lion all by himself. What about when he became king? He faced even more struggle as he led a nation in spite of his own personal struggles. The temptation may have been to have a pity party in the valleys he walked yet he learned to pick himself up. Psalm 42:11 “Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why the unease within me? Put your hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him, my Savior and my God.” On one occasion, David’s family had been taken captive, the city had been burned and all the people in the city were captured. Then his own people spoke of stoning him because they were all deeply grieved. You can read the account in 1 Samuel 30. Verse 4 says, “David and the people who were with him lifted up their voices and wept, until they had no more power to weep.” They had cried until they had no tears left. Verse 6 says, “David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and daughters. BUT David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.” David made a choice to rise out of the ashes and seek the Lord for the next step. “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them? And He (the Lord) answered him, ‘Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.’” We see in a few verses later, “So David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away... and nothing of theirs was lacking, either small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything which they had taken from them; David recovered all.” If David had lain down and wallowed in debilitating grief, he would’ve never recovered what had been stolen from him and his people. On the hillsides, he had learned the power of praise and worship. He had learned how to encourage himself while in the depths of despair. He recounted the promises of God and took courage from them. As we walk through the valleys in life, we can do as David did! We can recover all! Put your hope in God, dear friends.

CARL Winkler

Adolph Paul Kwasney It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Adolph Kwasney at his home in Moose Jaw on April 8, 2019. Adolph was born on July 9, 1950 in Porcupine Plain, SK. He was predeceased by his beloved wife Joan Ellen Kwasney (Jewell), his parents Annie and Steve Kwasney and his sister Irene Porter. He is survived by his stepson Jeffery, sisters; Hazel Lazurka, Helen Kwasney, Doris Kwasney and by his brothers Freddy Kwasney and Thomas Kwasney. He will be fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. In his younger years, Adolph travelled the country and had worked in almost every region in Canada. Wherever he was, he developed great friendships, those that he was there for, and to those that were there for him. Today, these many friends are missing him dearly. He married Joan Jewell in 1981 and settled on the farm south of Porcupine Plain for several years. While being a farmer was alright with Adolph, he had greater ambitions. He also loved to do mechanical work, so they moved to Stony Mountain, MB, where he was hired to work as a diesel mechanic with CP Rail. He worked with CP for many years in Stony Mountain where they had acquired many good friendships but later on relocated to Moose Jaw where they could both be closer to family. While in Moose Jaw, he again made many friends and became a familiar face at the Eagles Club. At Adolph’s request, cremation has taken place. A Celebration of his Life will be held at the Eagles Club, 561 Home St. West, Moose Jaw, on May 18, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. A Graveside Service will be held at the Watrous Cemetery at a date to be announced. A further graveside service will also be held at the High Tor Cemetery (15 kms south of Porcupine Plain) also at a later date. All are welcome. In living memory of Adolph, a memorial tree planting will be made by Jones-Parkview Funeral Services. Please see our online book of condolences at and www. (Obituaries). Blair Scott Funeral Director

Carl Winkler of Moose Jaw passed away on April 15, 2019 at the age of 85. Carl was born in the Parkbeg District. Carl overcame many obstacles from an early age to become a proud and dedicated farmer for 57 years. He was active in the community where he was a hockey referee, a ball umpire, a member of the RM Counsel, a long-term member with the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool as well as selling hail insurance for many years. He loved curling, fishing, hunting, camping, travelling and visiting with family, friends and people in general. In 2009 Carl and Grace retired from the farm and moved to Moose Jaw. Carl is predeceased by his father Walter and mother Annie; sister Elaine Blanchard; sister-inlaw Mary Barber; special Uncle and Aunt John and Alice Winkler. Carl will be sadly missed by his wife of 62 years Grace; children Teresa Donley, Angela Burton (Darryl), Michael (Lucy); grandchildren Derek, Christy, Melanie, Kevin, Bret, Adam, Jenna and Megan; great grandchildren Ethan, Nicholas, Ella, Saige, Huxley, Hudson and Ember; sister Marilyn Dumonceau; sister-in-law Merle (Bill) Oldhaver; brother-in-law Bob (Mary) Jackson; special Aunt Gertrude Lambert as well as numerous cousins, nephews, nieces and many friends. The family would like to express their appreciation to the ICU and ER staff at the Dr. F. H. Wigmore Hospital for their care and compassion. As Carl’s request there will be no formal service. A family interment will take place at a later date. For those wishing memorial donations may be made to the Providence Place McGuire Centre, 100 2nd Ave NE., Moose Jaw, SK S6H 1B8.

Palestinians gather to perform Friday prayers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound in Jerusalem. The mosque caught fire at the same time as Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Photo courtesy Getty Images

Muslim mosque burns at same time as Paris cathedral Moose Jaw Express Staff Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque, one of the top three holy sites in Islam and constructed almost 1,300 years ago, was hit by fire at the same time as Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on April 15. The fire is said to have started in the Al-Marwani Prayer Hall — also known as Solomon’s Stables — which is part of the same compound as the Al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock, according to architecture website Arch Daily. “The fire broke out in the guard’s room outside the roof of the Marwani Prayer Hall,” reported the Jerusalem Post. The Marwani Prayer Hall is located at the base of the corner of the Temple Mount where the southern and eastern walls meet, near the stairs up to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Post added. The fire occurred above the prayer hall, in an open area on the Temple Mount itself. Firemen of the Islamic Waqf department in Jerusalem were able to control the fire before any harm was done to the worshippers or the other prayer halls, Arch Daily reported. While the cause remains unknown, sources claim children near the prayer hall may have accidentally started the fire. The Dome of the Rock, built in the late seventh century, was the third shrine of Islam, after the Kaaba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia and Prophet Mohammad’s Mosque in Medina, Saudi Arabia, the website continued. Structurally, the shrine is of high importance as it was the first to ever use a dome in Islamic architecture, while it also includes intricate geometric use of piers, columns, and arcades. The architecture’s double-enclosed octagonal structure covers a monumental rock that represented the summit of Mount Moriah, a site from which Muslim teachings explain the prophet ascended to heaven. As for the structure’s notable golden dome, it was originally made out of wood — also in a double-layered approach — and then ornamented with marble and gold-coloured aluminum encasement. The mosque is said to have escaped the fire relatively unscathed, with a single mobile guard booth the only structure to sustain damage. MOOSE JAW
