Prodrome Health Centre doors officially open Larissa Kurz





The official grand opening of the new Prodrome Health Centre took place on May 29, with founder Dr. Dayan Goodenowe cutting the red ribbon alongside his dedicated team. This is the first outreach centre from Prodrome Sciences, Dr. Goodenowe’s first motion into public community health. The centre’s purpose is to offer a preventative outlook on health, and welcome people into a like-minded community and give them the information necessary to better both their short-term and longterm health. Prodrome Health is spearheading the offering of an advanced type of blood-test, called the ProdromeScan blood test, which analyzes biochemical markers in one’s blood that could indicate the development of a disease before it actually comes to fruition. Early detection offers a chance to address and change lifestyle conditions that could help prevent or delay certain ailments. This is the purpose of preventative medicine, and this opening day has been a long time in the making. “People have worked with Dayan for almost 20 years on this, building the science and technology to a point where we can introduce it into a preventative health model like this. So, it’s very, very thrilling,” said Erika Shklanka, vice-president of operations. “Our whole vision is supporting people, building community,” she added. “We don’t have all the answers. We have researchers, we have partners around the world, and we want to find the answers and work with the community.” Prodrome Sciences Inc. hopes that the establishment of the centre will continue to grow and offer its services to the entire province. “It’s great to just start in one community, and the goal and the

dream is other communities in Saskatchewan,” said Shklanka. “We’re starting with one town at a time, one community at a time.” Moose Jaw was chosen as the initial starting point both because of its central location within the province, and also maybe with a bit of insider knowledge: as a farm boy born and raised in the area, Dr. Goodenowe knows a little bit about how it connects with the rest of Saskatchewan. “Ultimately, we’re interested in changing the overall health of this entire province,” said Dr. Goodenowe. Questions about the centre and the supports it offers can be directed to Prodrome Sciences Inc., by email at or by calling their toll-free number at (877) 280-5880.

The new health centre is located at 1350 Lakeview Road.

Moose Jaw MS Walk raises $16,000 to combat disease Organizers impressed with support from community Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Saskatchewan Blue Cross MS Walk has quickly evolved into one of the top fundraisers for fighting multiple sclerosis in the province – and Moose Jaw is no exception. A total of 70 participants and 40 volunteers took part in the walk on Saturday morning at Sunningdale School, braving the cool conditions to be part of an event that has become near and dear to many in the Friendly City. Walkers take the course at the beginning of the Moose Jaw MS Walk. Megan Strube speaks about her experiences with multiple sclerosis as MS Walk organizer Amy Bosche and Moose Jaw mayor Fraser Tolmie look on.

Members of Team Megan – in honour of Moose Jaw MS Walk supporter Megan Strube – take to the course on Saturday morning.

“It’s fantastic,� MS Society community coordinator Amy Bosche said of the turnout and support. “It’s such a prevalent disease in Saskatchewan, over 3,700 people live with this disease and on top of that we have family and friends and caretakers who are affected. So it’s definitely needed that we’re raising awareness and raising the funds for research... we always say ‘somebody knows somebody with MS’.� The event included greetings from Moose Jaw mayor Fraser Tolmie and featured a pre-walk presentation from Megan Strube – who has lived with MS for five

years and has been a major contributor to the walk ever since, with Team Megan bringing in around $25,000 the last four years and hitting $5,085 this year. In total, local supporters raised around $16,000, led individually by long-time supporter Lindsay Newsham with $1,960, Linda Smallwood at $1,700 and Gwen Failler at $1,515. “That’s amazing,� Bosche said. “We always say Moose Jaw is such a close knit community and they really do come together to support a cause. Family and friends always open up their wallets and raise that money, and we’re always really appreciative of that support. “Across the province we expect to raise $480,000 and I actually think we’re going to beat that this year, so that’s awesome.�

Private talks prevented YMCA board from fully answering members’ questions, says chair Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw YMCA’s board of directors was unwilling to answer some questions during a public meeting because of the confidential discussions held around the shut-down process. Before the board made the decision to shut down the entire organization, it had to undertake a thorough look at financials, explained board chair Christine Boyczuk. It had to talk to the Regina YMCA first to determine if it would take over any programs from Moose Jaw. Directors faced a short deadline to get things done. They hired Diana Deakin-Thomas, as interim CEO, in April to focus on preliminary work of shutting down the organization, Boyczuk continued. This prevented the board from telling members or employees about what was happening. Members and employees were officially told about the shutdown of the YMCA in Moose Jaw on May 28, during a meeting at the Cosmo Senior Centre. More than 200 people expressed their disappointment during the meeting and what the future held for some of the organization’s programs and services, especially child-

care. About 40 employees at the two YMCA locations will lose their jobs. The board had planned to meet with staff — the day before the public meeting — to tell them directly about what was happening, but a leak of confidential documents to social media interrupted that plan, said Boyczuk. “So that was where it really hurt the staff,� she remarked. Members and staff knew there was “consideration� of the Fairford Street building being sold, but were unaware of the Athabasca Street location also being put up for sale, Boyczuk explained. Since the lease was up on the buildings, the board had to determine what to do next and how long it could keep the organization solvent. There were also “a lot of moving parts� in this process, such as employees had to be told before the business could be sold; employees couldn’t be told until members were informed; and buildings couldn’t be put up for sale. “Right now we’re losing $50,000 a month, is what we have to come up with, so that’s $600,000 a year,� Boyczuk continued.

Boyczuk estimated that it would cost $3.2 million to refurbish the Fairford Street location. The board made the decision to close down the organization at its March meeting, she continued. Once that happened, directors stopped reaching out to community organizations and donors looking for support. Talks about amalgamation between the Moose Jaw and Regina organizations began several years ago, although there was much resistance to that proposal, Boyczuk explained. However, she is thrilled that Regina stepped in to take over the child-care services and praised the Regina YMCA CEO for his efforts. The child-care services are operated at five different locations in the community and employ 40 people. Those 250 spaces will remain at those places. “We hope to keep as many services as we can and we’re sorry this had to happen,� Boyczuk said, adding she feels bad for shutting down an organization that is 114 years old.

Tiny teachers making big impressions on local classrooms Larissa Kurz

They’re likely the youngest educators in the province — the babies who appear in classrooms as part of the Roots of Empathy learning program. They’re almost certainly the most adorable. Roots of Empathy is a learning program that has parents and their young babies volunteer to spend time in classrooms, ranging from kindergarten to grade 8, to teach kids about empathy and emotional development. And although there is a parent and a trained instructor also present, it really is the baby that does the teaching. It’s a program that has been running since 2013 and is now celebrating its fifth year of success — they were put on hold in 2017-18, due to the whooping cough outbreak in the city. Trish Smith first got involved in the program about four years ago with her son, Nathan, and now this year has returned with her daughter, Kayla. For her, the way that the kids in the classroom develop a connection with the baby is such an interesting thing to witness, as a parent. “It’s really neat to see how each of the kids in the classes connect with the babies and

Daycee Richardson, the community advocate for the program, describes the experience as emotional literacy. By seeing emotions on a much smaller, more expressive face, kids learn to recognize those feelings in both themselves and other people. It also creates a conversation about emotions and gives kids the words to describe them. “It helps them have that language to ex-

press their own feelings, which we know through research that it lowers levels of aggression,� said Richardson. By learning these things about themselves, Richardson finds that it helps with the short-term issue of aggression and bullying, as well as the long-term generational cycle of violence and neglect in families. This year, four schools in Moose Jaw are hosting a tiny teacher, and Richardson says that there is no lack of interest in the program. There’s always a waiting list to

Smith recommends getting involved, as the experience really is one of a kind. “It’s definitely something to capitalize on and get involved in. It’s really neat, as a mom, to watch the relationships between the children and the babies,� said Smith. Interest in being involved in the program is always welcome, and Richardson encourages people to contact her directly at if they’d like to know more about being a partner family or a volunteer instructor.

Living in the big city can be quite a challenge for seniors; I think that’s why many of the province’s rural folk decide to move to smaller cities like Moose Jaw or even to small town Saskatchewan. It’s not uncommon to see many seniors on any givJoan Ritchie EDITOR en day making their way with their walkers or electric wheelchairs down the streets of Moose Jaw into the heart of the city. Living here gives them a chance for a little more independence. You very seldom would see this in other larger cities. Isolation is not a friend of the senior; camaraderie, social outings and a little personal independence should be an integral part of everyday life for the aging and can benefit their quality of life. Seems smaller communities are a little more forgiving with having seniors milling around in the midst of the fold on their own accord. Greater freedom and independence is a good thing for their self-confidence, too. That’s why I find it so disheartening to hear that our seniors’ organizations are in dire financial straights unable to meet their financial obligations to keep the associations going. It’s a sad state of the times we are living in. I personally don’t feel that society takes as good care of them as should be. They have been the backbone and heartbeat of our province and in their old age, it seems that we are abandoning them. These organizations provide a healthy and safe environment for seniors to get together with others of like kind: prairie people with prairie backgrounds and like interests. Coffee time and conversation, card games and learning opportunities, dances and fun activities allow for a break away from the elderly cares of life and can help keep seniors’ bodies and minds healthier and sharper. I am hoping that a resolution will present itself very soon to allow for the organizations to continue. As far as I’m concerned, Senior organizations are as vital to a healthy community as daycares are.

Sask. museums have important role to play in reconciliation process By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

Reconciliation over past mistreatment and disrespect of Indigenous people and their culture in Canada goes beyond formal government apologies and monetary compensation. The Museums Association of Saskatchewan (MAS) is playing a role in reconciliation by working with member museums to respectfully present Indigenous artifacts and remove stereotypical information. “Museums relate to everybody,” says Michelle Brownridge, MAS community engagement co-ordinator. She describes museums as “essentially colonial institutions” with collections developed under European eyes. “It’s really important to start the conversation with Saskatchewan museums about the treaty reconciliation commission and rights of Indigenous people.” Reconciliation “recognizes the harms and mistakes of the past.” A MAS committee is consulting with Indigenous peoples of Saskatchewan. “Museums are seen as educational institutions and often when you go into a museum you’re investing a great deal of trust in that accurate information.” School children visit museums, often developing their impression of the past. “When the content doesn’t represent all viewpoints of society that can really start to perpetuate harmful, stereotypes and become single-minded.” Many Saskatchewan museums are based on the pioneer era, have value and are meaningful. “What we need to understand is there is a whole other story that isn’t necessarily being told when we are speaking about the pioneer era. It doesn’t talk about dispossession

and displacement of Indigenous people.” The Western Development Museums have adopted plans to remedy lack of the Indigenous story in collections with a goal of putting in an Indigenous voice “where everyone belongs and all histories matter.” History doesn’t have to be rewritten. Brownridge pointed to changes in a United States diorama of the pilgrims as an example. The diorama depicted Indigenous women as subservient when they were society leaders. Instead of removing the diorama, the museum built a series of panels explaining that Indigenous women were knowledge keepers and decision makers, leaders in their culture and pointing out how complex colonization was. Museums with Indigenous artifacts should consult with First Nations on the “appropriate handling and display, as some of these like head dresses are sacred and ceremonial and should not be displayed. “Knowledge keepers in appropriate communities are the ultimate authorities for display and interpretation of artifacts.” The Ancient Echoes Centre near Herschel consulted with nearby First Nations on its extensive collection and the Clayton McLean Museum at Cutknife consulted local First Nations about handling of its huge Indigenous collection. Brownridge’s remarks were made at the 49x110 Tourism Conference in Swift Current. Ron Walter can be reached at

Decoration Day honours Canadian military veterans Representatives from various military and civilian organizations take part in grave decorating, Crescent Park ceremony Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

What started as a protest over the lack of government recognition for soldiers who fought in the Battle of Ridgeway in 1866 has become an annual tradition honouring those who have fought in the defence of Canada. The 2019 Decoration Day ceremonies took place at cemeteries throughout Moose Jaw and during a memorial service at the Crescent Park cenotaph on Sunday afternoon, involving members of the military, Legion and ANAVETS from throughout the area. Leading the troops and cadets as they marched into the park was, as always, the Royal Canadian Legion colour party, featuring veterans carrying the Canadian flag and other banners representing the province and various organizations. They’re a ubiquitous presence at military memorials throughout the area and take pride in being part of such events. “I served in the military for 30 years so it’s near to my heart, especially being with the Legion for 25 years and being on this colour party for that whole time,” said colour party commander Steve Richardson of being a part of Decoration Day. “It’s important because it’s a chance to honour those who have served in the Canadian military over the years and to remember their sacrifice.” On its surface, Decoration Day holds a unique place for the Canadian military, as it originally honoured those who fought in Ridgeway during the Fenian Raids and eventually grew to encompass the Northwest Rebellion, Second Boer War and First World War. Since then it’s become a counterpart to Remembrance Day, which focusses on the First World War and beyond. “Decoration Day started with the very

So to recognize those people we started doing these parades and it’s continued ever since.” A solid contingent of civilian supporters braved the hot sunshine to take part in the weekend, something Richardson said is always a nice thing to see at such events. “The Legion does more than just sit at Legion Hall, and to be out here and let them see us helps everyone understand that. “We’re proud to be a part of things like Decoration Day and Remembrance Day and remembering all those who served.”

A Childhood Crush


With any cut done by Shayleen Get a Free Style

Not only have I always been very good looking and reasonably smart, but I am usually a kind, caring and most importantly a loving human being. This compassionate personality trait probably began when I was a young good-looking pre-schooler. I was a faithful viewer of a televiby Dale “bushyâ€? sion program called Romper Bush Room. Romper Room was important in my pre-school life because of one reason and one reason only‌Miss Anne. Miss Anne was the hostess of the Canadian version of Romper Room and I had a huge crush on her. Miss Anne began my day by looking in her magic mirror and asking if I had been a good boy. I was positive I was the only good boy in television land. She “hadâ€? me the day she looked in her magic mirror and “sawâ€? me and said my name on television. My infatuation lasted until the day when Miss Anne disappeared from the airwaves and was unceremoniously replaced with some bimbo named Miss “Whateverâ€?. I checked the National news, the newspaper and expected Miss Whatever to fill me in on

the disappearance of Miss Anne, who I was sure had been kidnapped. No longer a fan of Romper Room, I moved on to the world of movies, and quickly forgot Miss Anne because I saw a Doris Day movie and a new crush developed. Doris Day passed away a few weeks ago. While I have acknowledged a lifelong fondness for Doris Mary Kapplehoff (her real name), I never realized how much her passing meant to me; I honestly thought about wearing a black armband. I was thinking about my “Doris Day� moments and could not remember a specific movie scene that highlighted her comedic or dramatic acting abilities, but when it came to her singing I had quite a list. With over 650 recordings, her voice was instantly recognizable, and her smooth easy phrasing has been wisely compared to another of my lifelong crushes, Ella Fitzgerald. The two great singers have sung many of the same tunes. In fact, one of Ella’s greatest hits was one of Doris Day’s hits two years earlier. Sentimental Journey was Doris Day’s first hit in 1945 when she was the singer for Les Brown and his orchestra; Ella duplicated the success in 1947 making it one of my favorite songs of all time. Another hit for Doris Day was What Ever Will Be (Que Sera Sera). Looking back, I think it may have been my personal motto for acceptance and perhaps tolerance. Whatever will be will be, has covered a lot of ground for me. When

Doris Day passed away at the age of 97 my honest first reaction was total sadness but then I thought “que sera sera� and it did ease the loss. I am of an age now when my childhood heroes and idols are passing away with alarming regularity. For the past decade or so there have been many erroneous reports of these folks dying. Doris Day was in an elite group of personalities that have “died� many times in error. It was only a few years ago that there was a three-way tie for times dying in a single year; Doris Day joining Betty White and Willie Nelson at a whopping four times in a single year. After retiring from entertaining, my childhood crush, Doris Day, gave me yet another reason for continuing my crush-itude by supporting and advocating animal rights. In her later years, this activism may have been her legacy over and above her entertainment I STILL CRUSH achievements. So, how ON DORIS DAY does a good looking and reasonably intelligent fan of Doris Day pay tribute to his lifelong crush? By continuing to support the SPCA and other animal rescue organizations. Que sera sera. BY SUPPORTING THE S.P.C.A.

Popular farm chemical future clouded by lawsuits

By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express The widely-used farm chemical Roundup has AGRIMART come under a cloud in the last few years. EXPRESS Several studies have linked the long-term use of glyphosate, the generic name for Roundup, as causing cancer. The World Health Organization cancer research agency in 2017 declared glyphosate a cancer-causing chemical amid much controversy. Just weeks ago, a California jury ordered a $2 billion award from Bayer, the owner of Roundup, to a couple suffering from cancer. The couple claimed successfully that three decades of exposure to glyphosate in their residential, landscaping business caused their cancer. This award, the highest ever in the United States, comes on top of two other California awards totalling $159 million. Bayer is appealing the size of the $2 billion award. Monsanto, the Bayer subsidiary that developed and grew wealthy on Roundup, faces 13,400 similar lawsuits in the United States. One lawyer at the California trial said Monsanto never cared about the safety of Roundup. In Saskatchewan, Moose Jaw farmer Gary Gadd is represented by well-known Tony Merchant in a class action lawsuit claiming that over 20 years of using the chemical caused Hodgkins lymphoma cancer. The Bayer shareholder meeting in April was described as raucous. Since Bayer acquired Monsanto the share price has dropped 40 per cent. Shareholders believe the American-based Monsanto took Bayer for a ride with the $60 billion sale. Some called for a plan to settle the Roundup lawsuits. The larger Bayer was supposed to be an unassailable giant in farm chemicals and seeds. Now it may be vulnerable to a take-over. The 150-year-old Bayer has lost $40 billion market value since acquiring Monsanto. Critics are calling for a separation of the chemical/seed division from the pharmaceutical, consumer health products and animal health divisions. No matter what the outcome of the Bayer issue, the use of glyphosate for farming is under a cloud. Public pressure on lawmakers will restrict, if not outright ban, this farm chemical. Restrictions, or a ban, would be devastating as there is no other easy alternative for farmers. Another important aspect of the Roundup matter is the subsequent break down in public trust on three levels. Trust in corporations is reduced; trust in the regulators who allowed Roundup and other farm chemicals to be used is missing. And trust in farmers who continue using glyphosate will be eroded.

A heart-warming reunion: cardiac arrest survivors meet, celebrate with paramedics Larissa Kurz

For both Gary Downton and Don Dreger, the chance to reunite with the paramedics who helped save their lives was a moment they are grateful to have happened. Just this February, Downton and Dreger each suffered a cardiac arrest, within a week of one another; both were given CPR by a bystander on the scene before being attended to by paramedics and airlifted to Regina by STARS. An incredible chain of help made their stories ones of success: Downton is currently in the cardiac rehabilitation program at Yara Centre, and Dreger recently celebrated his birthday. Both men were lucky enough to have a bystander jump into action, performing CPR until an ambulance from Moose Jaw & District EMS arrived, and in Dreger’s case, having access to an automated external defibrillator (AED). Not all cardiac emergencies end this way; the majority of cardiac arrests end in much more somber circumstances, but statistics show that bystander CPR and on-site AEDs can double the chances of survival. This is the reason why Moose Jaw & District EMS Chief Kyle Sereda has been encouraging businesses to invest in AED units and register them with 911 services — as emergency dispatchers can locate registered AEDs in times of crisis, which can save a life. The availability of an AED device at the scene of Dreger’s cardiac arrest played an important role in his survival, and Sereda wants to see more successes and reunion celebrations like this one in the future. “Having a defibrillator in public buildings

For Downton, every bit of support he has received — from the day of the incident to his ongoing recovery — is important to him. Having a stranger with CPR knowledge present made a huge difference to him. “I don’t know how he feels about the whole thing either. He probably just helped me and that’s it,” said Downton. “For me, it was a pretty good thing.” Because of public preparedness, both of these men can continue on with their lives — something that all paramedics hope to see when they respond to any call. “I’ve got quite a few [surviving patients] out there that I’ve been able to shake their hands and talk to them after,” said Madden. “So that’s — you like it, that’s the reason you keep doing it.”

Chief of EMS Kyle Sereda spoke about the importance of bystander CPR and on-site AEDs.

Celebrating Moose Jaw’s “Notorious” Tourism Industry

MLAs Column

Warren Michelson

Moose Jaw North Warren Michelson, MLA

The Government of Saskatchewan recently celebrated Saskatchewan Tourism Week, bringing attention to the impact of the province’s tourism sector and the economic opportunities available through travel and tourism. Tourism brings many economic benefits to our province and our city, but also adds colour and quality of life to our residents. Welcoming new people visiting Moose Jaw and Saskatchewan can result in lifelong friendships. The most popular leisure and tourist activities in our province are camping, visiting parks and going to the beach. Sport and cultural events also contribute to attracting tourists and making our province a great place to visit and to live. We might give fans from our neighbouring provinces some good natured teasing when they come to watch their teams play against the Saskatchewan Roughriders, but the dollars they spend on food and accommodation when they’re here add to our provincial economy. The

same happens in Moose Jaw when fans come to watch rival baseball or hockey teams play the Millers or the Warriors. For a city the size of Moose Jaw, we certainly are “Notorious” for having great attractions and events. Our top-notch attractions like Mosaic Place, Temple Gardens Mineral Spa, the Mae Wilson Theatre, the Casino and our museums bring large numbers of tourists to our city. These are also great places for local residents to visit. We see visitors, and locals as well, enjoying our historic buildings, unique shops, parks and eating establishments or just stopping to see our world famous ‘Mac the Moose”. There’s a lot going on in Moose Jaw this summer, starting with the Moose Jaw Home Town Fair, June 21-23. Great events follow one after the other. ParkArt will add to the Canada Day festivities. Sidewalk Days will still be going on as we begin to enjoy two days of a full-fledged Air Show for the first time in 14 years. The following weekend the best of our international cultures will be on display at Motif. Many who love literature will arrive to participate in the Saskatchewan Festival of Word, one of Canada’s most recognized author and book festivals. The Western Development Museum will host Brickspo, for kids, and all the young at heart who love Lego and Lego construction. Tourism statistics for Moose Jaw are nothing short of im-

pressive. More than 430,000 tourists come to visit Moose Jaw annually, spending about 75 million dollars – and the numbers keep growing. Visitors during this past month of May were up 30 percent compared to May of 2018. Provincially, the industry contributes significantly to the Saskatchewan economy: Annually, tourism generates more than $2.37 billion in travel expenditures. • More than 13.6 million visits are made to and within the province each year. • There are 63,800 Saskatchewan residents employed in tourism or tourism-related jobs. • Saskatchewan’s tourism sector is 95 per cent small- or medium-sized businesses, and many are independently owned or operated. Our government supports the tourism industry through Tourism Saskatchewan, a crown corporation with the goal of connecting people with quality Saskatchewan experiences and advancing the development of successful tourism operations. Together with businesses and the dedicated employees and volunteers who attract tourists to our province, we will continue to see the tourism industry benefitting Moose Jaw and Saskatchewan in many ways. In the days and months ahead, keep in mind the value of tourism and be sure to welcome those tourists to our Notorious Friendly City.

Both representatives detailed the current proposals about the 9th Ave and Highway 1 intersection, currently under review with the Ministry of Highways and the City of Moose Jaw, as something that will be brought to the table in future legislative sessions. Lawrence noted the ongoing efforts of the provincial government on federal issues, such as the carbon tax and the trade discussions with China, will continue; Michelson noted that he hopes to see a continued push for the federal government to protect Saskatchewan interests. But mostly, both Lawrence and Michelson plan to spend their summer continuing to talk with their constituents, seeking feedback to take to the table with them when session resumes in the fall.

Hot Pressure Washers!! New Chez Nous gazebo honours memory of Cecelia and Bill Hackel Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Recently, Lloyd Hackel, his family and a crew of volunteers officially donated a brand new gazebo with four gliding rocking chairs to Chez Nous, although it has been stationed there since last fall for the outdoor enjoyment of the tenants. The idea was close to Hackel’s heart, considering the family’s close connection to the building – both as a senior’s residence and as St. Louis College in year’s past. The story goes back many, many years as Hackel’s mother, Cecelia, taught at the college back in the early 1960s before both his parents resided at the residence in their later years. “It started out as taking an opportunity to give back to Chez Nous, on behalf of both my father and mother, since they both stayed here,â€? Hackel explained. ‘Everyone in the family was for it, because every family or every person has something in their life that has a significant meaning to them. The connection of this building’s former life as St. Louis College and as a residence for my parents, that was it for us and it made sense.â€? The idea to honour the couple started out simply, with an A-frame swing the original plan. But, as Hackel related during his dedication speech, he remembered an elderly couple sitting on a swing and one of them wanting to swing, the other not. Conflict ensued so Hackel went with the next plan. “We wanted to give them something everyone could enjoy; there was no use giving a picture that hung on the wall because after you’ve seen it a million times you just keep walking by‌ (after the swing idea) it evolved further because we wanted something that people could sit outside and enjoy even if it was raining. Some of those perfect days, we all sit out on a hot summer day and then you have the afternoon shower and there’s nothing nicer than that smell.

This research may blow your socks off by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor As a family, we were blessed to have been able to go on a beach vacation this past winter. There are a few things in life that give me that feeling of “being able to exhale�. Standing on the beach, listening to the waves hitting the shore, is one of those things that brings me to near perfect calm. Recently I was doing some yard work in the backyard

Lloyd Hackel offers the story behind the new Chez Nous gazebo to family members and well-wishers. “So after humming and hawing and figuring out what we wanted, in the end we came forward with this idea and the gliding chairs. If you don’t want to move you don’t have to, you can just relax and enjoy the nice summer days.� There was no urgency to the project, which took a few months to complete through the efforts of Hackel, Jim Thorn – himself a former St. Louis College student – and Roger Martynook. “We’d start and then we’d stop and say ‘we’d better get going again’,� Hackel said. “But we got it done and brought it in last fall and people have had a chance to use it.�

It didn’t take long for that to happen. “One couple basically used it right up until the snow started to fly,� Hackel said with a chuckle. “These types of things are important for the elderly. They don’t have the bodies or the ability to around the block for a walk, so to get out and enjoy and be a part of nature is important to them and this will let them enjoy the summer days.�

and afterwards I took off my shoes and walked barefoot in the grass for a few minutes. While there was no sand between my toes, no ocean air to smell or waves to hear (nor beverage in my hand), I had a similar feeling of calm. Is this what it means to feel grounded? Grounding means being in direct contact with the, well‌ground. Whether it be grass, dirt, sand, water, snow, ice, etc., if you have nothing between your feet and the ground, you are grounded. While this may sound kind of flaky to some, research is telling us that being grounded has many real health benefits. One study performed on massage therapists revealed the ones that did their work while being grounded experienced less anxiety and depression, improved sleep and they felt more relaxed. Other studies show that grounding improves heart rate variability (an indication the body responds well to stress), reduces acute and chronic inflammation and pain, improves healing and strength-

ens the structure of the body’s individual cells. Apparently, the type of ground you are in contact with will affect the quality of the grounding. Grass is thought to be the best, especially when there is dew on it, as the higher humidity improves the contact with the ground, and the apparent transfer of electrons between foot and ground. Some “grounding experts� recommend up to 2 hours of grounding each day. For those who work indoors or live in concrete jungles, never experiencing grass, earth or sand, there are special grounding mats that can mimic foot-to-earth contact. I don’t think we were meant to don footwear as much as we do. Maybe it’s one factor adding to the chronic health problems that plague our society. While it may not be socially acceptable (nor safe) to go barefoot at work, we should try to spend more of our free time in direct contact with the earth.

Upcoming Auctions Funding pays ranchers to protect wildlife habitat By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express


Funding has been arranged to compensate ranchers in EXPRESS the southwest for improving critical habitat of endangered species. Contributing over $250,000US to the conservation plan is the U.S.-based National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF). The funding was matched by the Canadian Federal government’s Habitat Stewardship Program. The program is a results-based acreage payment, paid only if the rancher meets targets. Targets are set annually during the program. For three years, ranchers from two grazing corporations leasing former provincial community pastures – Val Marie and Beaver Creek – will take action on 25,000 acres to protect habitat for the endangered greater sage grouse. The 160,000 acres of native grasslands managed by the two grazing corporations include habitat for other endangered and at-risk species – Sprague’s pipit, swift fox and Mormon meadowlark The program is managed by the South of the Divide Conservation Action Program (SODCAP) in conjunction with the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association.


“The whole idea behind these agreements is that we’re not being prescriptive in our management. We’re letting the producers do the decision-making” that supports species-at-risk habitat, said SODCAP Executive-Director Tom Harrison. Results from actions are expected to improve critical wildlife habitat and beef forage production. Started in the fall of 2014, SODCAP partners with stakeholders, government and other interests to encourage ranchers protect habitat for wildlife, especially endangered, at risk or threatened species. Projects under SODCAP have developed action plans for protection of 15 species from the black-footed ferret, burrowing owl, ferruginous hawk to the long-billed curlew. To protect habitat the program has imported leafy spurge beetles and goats to reduce the invasive weed’s destruction. SODCAP funding became available after years of rancher requests at Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association conferences for compensation to protect wildlife habitat. The SODCAP boundaries run at an erratic angle from near Maple Creek to Wood Mountain. Ron Walter can be reached at

Are tax arrears really as unimportant as mayor claimed in outburst?

by Ron Walter

Being mayor of any city can be frustrating; being mayor of Moose Jaw is no exception. Frustration, apparently, caused Mayor Fraser Tolmie to give Councillor Brian Swanson a tongue-lashing at a recent city council meeting. Swanson was the lone member of council holding back his vote of approval on the record $7.8 million sale of the new industrial park to a pri-

vate company. His stated objection was wording of the sale contract clause that allowed a transfer of the park to another owner with city council consent. Swanson lost his motion to remove “without unreasonable delay” from the contract. He feared no one knows what constitutes unreasonable delay. The mayor tied into Swanson, asserting the councillor wants to oppress Moose Jaw development. Tolmie may have a point. Swanson has over the years been opposed to so many programs that the label AEFO

(against everything, for nothing) has been attached to his name. While it seems petty to object to a record land deal over three words, that oversight could come back to haunt the city and council. The mayor’s overriding frustration became evident when he attacked Swanson for raising concerns over growing tax arrears. Tax arrears have consistently grown from $1.765 million in 2017 to a recent $2.447 million – or 38 per cent. Swanson claimed growing property tax arrears would lead to a day of reckoning. The mayor blasted Swanson for perpetuating the tax arrears statistic and seemed to be upset Swanson would raise the issue on the day the record land sale was approved. Tolmie adopted a mayor-knows-best attitude in his attack. You can be sure he would conspire to vote Swanson off the island, were it possible. To some observers, the Tolmie tirade was justified, based on Swanson’s long-standing opposition to so many things. To other observers, the mayor was picking on the one councillor who consistently makes the public aware of

thorny issues raised behind closed doors, matters the taxpayers would never hear about. Rightly or wrongly, he is seen by some voters as their hero fighting for the little guy. Using the tax arrears matter to challenge Swanson’s attitude fails to recognize the importance of keeping a close eye on these arrears. Anyone with a crumb of business experience knows when collections of accounts slow down something is wrong: either customers are short of cash from economic conditions or they are ticked off at the product/service being offered. Growing tax arrears in Moose Jaw is no different. Continually increasing tax arrears are an elementary sign of tough times in the economy. It is the duty of council members to raise concerns over issues like tax arrears. The mayor picked the wrong matter on which to lecture Swanson. The mayor’s comments suggest he believes nothing is amiss with growing arrears. Hopefully the new industrial park owners will help boost tax assessment and take some burden off existing taxpayers.

Exciting kids programs returning to Public Library this summer Larissa Kurz The Public Library once again has a great line-up of kids programming to keep both parents and children busy while school is out. Children’s Librarian Tina Dolcetti is excited about the return of some classic favorites and some new additions to the programs. Storytime in Crescent Park is returning, as Dolcetti found last year that this particular event had a lot of interest. Taking place on Wednesday mornings in July and August, at 10:30 am, kids and parents are welcome to drop-in for a story and outdoor activities — weather permitting. “We’ve got like these little target practice games that we’re going to set up outside. We’ve got sidewalk chalk, we got Hula hoops, we’ve got plenty of fun little things to play with outside,” said Dolcetti. “And we have these huge books that we love reading to kids.” Design Lab workshops will begin on Tuesday afternoons, from 2-4pm in July and August, where kids are taken through an afternoon of learning about a new topic each week. The DIY Kids program will also be back, where each week has a theme and a fun craft to encourage kids interests — which sounds much like Design Lab but the difference is that DIY Kids projects are far more flexible. “You come in and you don’t have to stay; if you’re in a

Books relating to the theme of the week will be on display for kids who want to learn more about their crafts. rush, you can pick up the crafts and take them to go for a weekend at the lake,” said Dolcetti. “Or if you wanted to stay, you can spend three hours working on crafts as much as you want, so (DIY Kids) allows for a lot of flexibility.” And it’s not just crafting that these theme weeks are providing; books of related topics will be on display for kids who want to learn more about the subjects at home.

The goal, said Dolcetti, is to keep kids engaging with reading while school is out, to maintain those literacy skills. She recommends aiming for 15 minutes a day, at least. Another program that’s got Dolcetti excited is the Behind the Scenes tours; for any kid who’s ever wondered “how does that work?” when wandering through places like the Western Development Museum, or City Hall, these tours are a chance to answer those questions. So far, there are tours through the WDM, Rainbow Retro, Mae Wilson Theatre, and City Hall scheduled, and spots are going to be limited so Dolcetti recommends that parents sign up sooner rather than later. The main point Dolcetti hopes parents know is that all children’s programs from the Public Library are entirely public; having a library card isn’t required, each drop-in program is completely free to take part in, and parents are more than welcome to stay and join in. Registration for all programs that require it will be done through the Library website, and more information is available either on the website or by calling the Children’s Department at (306) 692-2787. Parents are asked to be present for drop-off and pick-up from programs and to provide contact information.

Police search for men who rammed vehicle into South Hill Shoppers, stole merchandise Moose Jaw Express Staff

The Moose Jaw Police Service is on the hunt for two men who used their vehicle to smash through the front door of Shoppers Drug Mart to steal merchandise.

Rebranding advice straight from guru Gair Maxwell Larissa Kurz

After 20 years in the business, branding coach Gair Maxwell had a few nuggets of advice to offer Moose Jaw business owners at his keynote presentation. Titled “Big Little Legends,” the two-day seminar detailed the ways in which businesses can build themselves what Maxwell calls “an irresistible brand.”

“Without the metaphorical, without the meaningful, without the emotional, you become very one dimensional,” -Branding Coach Gair Maxwell Those businesses’ brands —the ones with a magnetic pull he likens to Apple, Nike, or Ferrari — are built using great stories as a foundation point. “Basically, what’s at the heart of this is: do you have a story? And does your

story separate you, in terms of differentiation from the rest of the crowd or whatever space you compete in?” said Maxwell. “Because being different beats being better.” He then pairs this idea of choosing a story with understanding of where the majority of the audience lies: online. “This is the first year where spending on advertising on digital platforms, is exceeding that of television,” said Maxwell.

He recommends business owners follow the trends: in the past decade, the rise of social media platforms and content creators has created an online space focused on connectivity. In terms of branding, it’s a mecca of possibility. Adapting to change is extremely important, said Maxwell, but he also noted that there are some things that are unchangeable and still very important as well. People will always gravitate towards other people and their stories.

The trick, according to Maxwell, is combining the language of branding, which is metaphorical and emotional in nature, with the language of business, which is logical and literal. “Without the metaphorical, without the meaningful, without the emotional, you become very one dimensional,” said Maxwell. “Business leaders in the 21st century have to learn to speak both languages.” The recent rebranding of Moose Jaw as Canada’s Most Notorious City is one example that Maxwell is proud of: he finds that the change is fresh, flexible, and exactly the kind of story-telling platform set up to produce success. “The ‘Notorious’ thing is universal and it can be applied to anything. It’s one of those words that Moose Jaw, only Moose Jaw, can own and they can own it forever,” said Maxwell. “And this is the equivalent, for Moose Jaw, of what Nike did with ‘Just do it.’” Future success, he said, will depend on business owners embracing the word and living the story, to get the public to also live the story.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Basketball bandwagon might have new passenger Please don’t misunderstand: I am not a fickle fan, one who only jumps on the bandwagon when victory has been recorded or is expected. I have never denied that I am a hockey and curling fan. I don’t mind sitting in the stands to watch a softball or fastball Joyce Walter game; a few minutes of a footFor Moose Jaw Express ball game gives me my fill for the season; and golf is definitely not on my TV radar. Despite my youthful interest in the basketball court, I do not follow that sport, other than to watch highlight reels in between hockey periods or curling ends. Until now, that is. It seems nearly everyone is now watching and listening with rapt interest to everything the Toronto Raptors team is doing. To clear up any confusion, the Raptors team plays basketball in the National Basketball Association and recently won the eastern conference title — not to be confused with the other raptors, the birds of prey that take their opponents by force. At a pre-meeting discussion earlier this month, the chaps

were in rapture over the buzzer-beating basket scored by someone called Kawhi Leonard. That game-winning shot immediately seemed to take him to hero status in the sports world and since then there’s been a growing buzz about him, and about some other of his teammates. In fact, fans have been taking an active role in encouraging him to remain in Toronto/Canada next season. I haven’t been to a basketball game since the 1970s when the Harlem Globetrotters played an exhibition game at STI (SIAST, or now Sask. Polytechnic) and we got complimentary tickets. The action was swift and humorous — until one of the players grabbed my purse and dribbled his way across the court. He eventually returned my valuable belongings without even adding a souvenir item or some cash. That spelled the start of the end of any attraction to the game. In fact, even before then I felt my interest waning, possibly because I could never master the game in high school. By the time I got my short legs pumping hard enough to make it to the opposition end, the action was going the other way. And as hard as I tried, I could never execute the proper layup to the basket, nor could I throw accurately enough to get the ball even close to the hoop. The only scoring I ever managed was an underhanded throw during a pen-

alty shot. Finally, in desperation, the coach declared I would be a referee, thus automatically increasing his team’s winning percentage. I knew how to call travelling and I blew a forceful whistle, plus I could wear long pants rather than basketball shorts that did absolutely nothing for my vertically-challenged legs. Basketball was also the cause of a broken finger when the ball hit my pointer-finger on my right hand and left my finger in a metal spoon-like affair for a month. I learned to scribble with my left hand but never did manage to tie my own laces with only one hand. The coach was amazed at the injury, thinking out loud that he didn’t think I got close enough to the ball to hurt myself. All of those memories resurfaced when Housemate mentioned all the attention being paid to the Raptors (not the birds). I confess to reading a story about the Eastern Conference playoffs and noting how rabid the fans have become. Maybe next year I will supplement watching hockey games and curling with a game or two of basketball — just to see if I remember enough rules to come out of retirement as a referee.

Walk for Dog Guides walks for charity Larissa Kurz

While the morning of May 26 was a chilly one, half the walkers at this year’s Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides were lucky enough to have four legs and a fur coat to keep them warm. The human half had to improvise to keep warm, but the cause was certainly worth the chilly fingers. This was the second year that Laurie Ewen and her team of volunteers have organized the fundraiser walk in Moose Jaw, and just over $2,000 was raised this year — surpassing last year’s total.

Ewen was extremely pleased to see some new walkers come out, as the support means a lot to her and her family. “I’m amazed at these people that I’ve never met before, coming out and supporting us,� said Ewen. “They don’t know us and they still want to do this, that’s just Canadians helping Canadians, and it’s amazing.� Ewen’s son Stephen found a companion in autism assistance dog Bingo, and he has really benefited from the support that both Bingo and the Lions Foundation have



given. The walk saw some local businesses lend support again this year. Family Pizza donated a hot pizza lunch for walkers to enjoy after they returned, as well as Marvelous Mutts, who donated some time and funds to the event. The Burger Cabin in Wakamow Valley, MLA Warren Michelson, and Delights by D provided some goodies for grab bags. All of the funds raised by walkers are going directly to the cost of a guide dog — which can cost up to $25,000 for the Lions Foundation to train and place with an applicant. Pet Valu was once again the title sponsor and covered all administrative costs for the event. Ewen is already looking forward to next year’s walk, which she says will be on the last Sunday of May. She’s always welcoming interest from businesses wanting to be a sponsor and volunteers wanting to get involved. The event’s email, mjwalkfordogguides@, is always open for those interested in lending a hand.

Gate & Ride


The Nadeau Clan, who raised $670, were the top team fundraisers.

Lauren Walcer, with Laurie Ewen (L) and Pet Valu Manager Michelle Erdahl (R), brought in the highest amount as an individual walker, and also started off the walk this year.

Fern Valley News: Agriculture Exports and China Lucid “Lu” Knight Arnold visited and told me the young Adrian from Secretan had another birthday. He’s old! Most folks know but need a reminder – it’s the time to get your chicks for the season. Not many people sell chick any more. Used to come in a 100 chick flat, with a couple extras thrown in. When Stubbleweather’s Store in Fern Valley sold chicks the loud chirping was called the Sound of Spring Time. Stubbleweather’s don’t carry them no more so check in Moose Jaw. On the topic of chicks, Arnold said that in the old days in Moose Jaw, when he was in school there; said he got part-time work at the old Cluck and Pluck Plant out by Caron. I never heard a more descriptive name for a business. Late Monday the boy was by the house on the way home from the Bank. We talked farming and how difficult it is to decide what to plant this year. India put import tariffs on pulse crops in 2017 wrecking that market. Canadian exports to India dropped 83%. China gave some relief for Yellow Peas. They increased imports of Yellow Peas from Canada by 84% in 2018. They use them to make vermicelli noodles, very popular in China. Now in 2019 the Chinese cut way back on Yellow Peas and

the market dried up. With no good markets in India or China no sense growing Yellow Peas even if they are easy to grow and store. And the pet food market for Yellow Peas is also gone. Too many folks selling. And the Chinese ain’t buying Canola. The boy’s putting in more Wheat. They say problems in agricultural sales come from the arrest of Mrs. Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver. She’s the boss of Huawei. She wasn’t arrested for crimes in Canada. She was arrested because the Americans want her. Seen her on TV and she seems like a nice lady. Coffee drinking philosophers and most farmers don’t know why Canada keeps her arrested. Mrs. Meng Wanzhou ain’t hurting for money. She lives in a house in Vancouver worth 13 million dollars. That kind of money buys you 31 houses in the Sunnyingdale neighbourhood of Moose Jaw. The whole agriculture business, so important to Saskatchewan, has gone totally crazy. Who knows what’s gonna happen with future agriculture sales. And now the Chinese, who love pork, are gonna cut back on that. Don’t matter that the Chinese have to go without Canadian pork – the Chinese politicians is cutting back. Since we done what the U.S. wanted with Mrs. Meng Wanzhou, I wonder if the United States will give Saskatchewan farmers money to get through the coming winter? Yah! Right.

Alongside Macdiarmid and her staff, Seida-Dodd is also welcoming lash technician Brigitte Wyatt to the salon.

Prairie folk art connections explored in new MAG exhibit Larissa Kurz

The Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery has collected together an exhibit focusing on prairie-influenced folk art, from both traditional and contemporary artists, as their summer show. ‘A Prairie Vernacular’ highlights artists from Saskatchewan, Alberta, and Manitoba, and contrasts contemporary artists’ work alongside the folk artists, or vernacular artists, who inspired them. Jennifer McRorie, director and curator at the MAG, curated the collection alongside Joanne Marion from the Esplanade Art Gallery in Medicine Hat. They began with first deciding what folk art entails, exactly, and then looking at how folk artists have influenced their later contemporaries. “[We’re] sort of looking at the history of that, as well, and looking at real relationships that existed between artists and even perceived relationships, where you see sort of aesthetic connections or conceptual connections between work,� said McRorie. The exhibit includes work from many

The front of the exhibit features a sculpture by Joe Fafard, of artist Harvey McInnes — who’s paintings are displayed just behind the sculpture’s stand. familiar names — like Joe Fafard, Lawrence Peterson, Graeme Patterson, Amalie Atkins, Victor Cicansky, Allen Sapp, and so on — and ranges across all different kind of mediums: paintings, prints, sculptures, toy-working, even videos. “There’s a lot of eye candy and a lot of pieces that I think will intrigue people,� said McRorie.

To truly highlight the connections the exhibit is built upon, many pieces are grouped together purposefully to build upon a narrative; a sculpture that inspired a painting, for example, will be displayed next to each other. The variety of themes that folk art includes means that there will be a colorful collection of artwork on display, all

of which is grouped together by theme. Many pieces deal with memory, politics, religion, life on the prairies; style types like prairie gothic, surrealism, and even funk art will be displayed together. A Prairie Vernacular will be on display through to Aug. 31. The True Colors exhibit opened on May 31st as well. It is a collection of work from artists in the local LGBTQ+ community. The MAG has partnered with Moose Jaw Pride to put together the exhibit, which will be set up in the temporary exhibit space, as a featured event for Pride Week. True Colors will be on display until July 1. For the sixth summer, the MAG will once again have its Global Warning display in the lobby. The concept of the display is an environmental statement: local community members, elementary and high school students collect garbage and then recycle the materials into artwork. The Museum & Art Gallery’s website has more information about the exhibits, along with a schedule of their programs.

And we have everything here from dogs and cats to reptiles, toads, snakes even a rat rescue‌ a lot of different animals.â€? Those who took in the event were welcome to bring their own dogs and cats and check out the many items that were also on sale for their pets as well. “It’s a pretty steady stream of people and people are connecting, which is what we like to see‌ so it’s just amazing stuff and we’re really happy with what we’ve seen today,â€?

SaskPoly’s Instrumentation Program celebrates 50 years of training students By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

Past and current students and instructors of Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Instrumentation Engineering Technology program gathered at the Moose Jaw campus recently to celebrate the program’s 50th anniversary. About 125 people from Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan were expected to attend the two-day celebration, which featured a social mixer on May 30 and golf tournament on May 31. “We wanted to celebrate 50 years of being a program in Saskatchewan,” said committee chairman Jared Mathieson. He thought it was impressive that the instrumentation program had developed and grown through three versions of the school. It began in September 1968 at the Saskatchewan Technical Institute (STI) in Moose Jaw. It started as a two-semester program but expanded to three semesters in the 1970s. That format carried on until 1988, when STI became part of the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST). The program then expanded to four semesters, or two years. By 1997, the Instrumentation Program became certified as Instrumentation Engineering Technology. About 800 program graduates and 200 journeymen have completed their training at SaskPolytechnic in Moose

Another big change was when the program converted to Co-op education, where students went on work terms and then came back to finish the course.

Tourism Moose Jaw’s trolley is back on the streets for another year. To celebrate the vehicle’s 20th season of taking tourists around the city, the organization held a special birthday event on May 23, where residents could ride the trolley before the tourism season officially kicks into high gear. The trolley is important to Tourism Moose Jaw because the organization is non-profit, explained Krista McDonald, head of visitor services. The trolley is the largest source of income for the organization and it helps keep the doors open. Starting Saturday, June 1, the trolley — which can accommodate 34 people — will be available for daytime tours seven days a week. There will be three pick-ups per day from the Tourism Moose Jaw office, while there will be

These tours give visitors a sense of the history of the municipality before they actually go into the community to show and browse, she continued.

She kept working until emergency personnel arrived; however, the man died in hospital. Commissionaire Kayla Gottselig and Constables Murray Rice and Evan Schwabe received this award for responding to the medical needs of a high-risk prisoner — he had harmed himself — in custody on Jan. 9, 2019. Their efforts saved the prisoner’s life. Constables Melonie Ziffle and Rod Zeorb were given this award for responding to a call about a woman who jumped from a bridge and onto the CPR main yard on March 1, 2018.

Child predators should have no rights at all, says victims’ advocate Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Predators who victimize children and youths should have all their rights taken away and should never be given second chances, says an advocate for victims and survivors. Whitewood native Zachary Miller was a guest speaker at a luncheon held at the Heritage Inn on May 29 to acknowledge Victims and Survivors of Crime Week. The goal of the week is to raise awareness about the issues facing victims and survivors of crime and about the services, assistance and laws in place to help them and their families. The theme of the week was “The Power of Collaboration.” Miller, now 23, was 10 years old when convicted pedophile Peter Whitmore kidnapped him and another boy on July 29, 2006 from Whitewood and drove them to Kipling. There, Whitmore repeatedly sexually assaulted them during a two-day period, before police rescued the boys and arrested Whitmore. It was learned recently that Whitmore has an online profile on a pen-pal website for inmates. While speaking during the luncheon, Miller paced back and forth on the stage, his thoughts unbridled and his words flowing freely. He called the abuse of kids a “bloody epidemic.” “There is a loophole in the system,” said Miller, who sleeps three hours a night and has post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Whitmore is supposed to be serving a life sentence in jail, yet, he has been in jail eight times previously for similar offences. “What do we do? If (predators) victimize someone, there is no coming back. They can’t change. Once a preda-

tor, always a predator,” continued Miller. “We have to take away those rights” to communicate with the outside world. Court documents filed as part of Whitmore’s past cases show how prison psychologists have characterized him as a manipulative liar, unwilling to admit he had ever harmed anyone. Miller told the crowd he is glad this situation happened to him since he won’t quit speaking out about it now. “It’s time to take the rights of the victims back,” he stated.

Miller has worked with the Canadian Centre for Child Protection (CCCP) for four years as a spokesman on victimization and child abuse. He pointed out the statistics around child kidnappings are alarming. About 75 per cent of kids abducted never come home. Of the 25 per cent that do, they are dead within 10 years due to suicide or overdoses. Five per cent of abductees survive but become like the people who abducted them. “I can now read people and understand what they have gone through,” he said. “Now I am on the side of the RCMP (and police) and what they go through (mentally). It’s time to start doing something about this. Any kid who is victimized needs help.” Miller’s kidnapping and sexual assault broke his family. He was forced back into school two weeks after he was found and was immediately bullied. Even his teachers made fun of him and treated him differently. It didn’t help that most people in Whitewood turned on the Millers, either. When Miller was 14, he was helping his mother sell produce at a farmers’ market. A woman came up to their table, recognized him, and said to his mom, “So you’re the mother of the boy who caused all the trouble in Whitewood.” Since 2015, Miller has worked in schools and communicated with students about safety. He can come down to their level and explain what he’s gone through. He also works with children who have been rescued from abuse. “It’s time to do something,” he added. “Not just with victimized kids, but at-risk teens … (and) suicidal kids. … We have to deal with it.”

Sculpting trash into art: students discuss global warning with exhibit Larissa Kurz The Global Warning exhibit has opened at the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery, and it provides a powerful statement about the state of garbage collection in current society. Each piece in the collection was constructed using just garbage, gathered by the students and repurposed into material, and its impressive the things they were able to procure for the project. One piece uses a broken Smartboard as a base for a collage of garbage materials. A patio umbrella serves as the structure in another piece. Another thoughtful piece uses discarded electronics — an old TV, a computer monitor, discarded charging cables, and so on — to depict how technology dependence is creating waste. This is the sixth year the exhibit has been featured, as a collaborative project organized by the AXIS Committee and the Youth Advisory Committee here in the city. “It’s all about collaborative efforts and really showing how if we come together, we can change things . . . and create amazing things out of something that’s not so good,” said Lucas Dyck, a student from Central Collegiate on the Youth Advisory Committee. It’s a fun experience for the students as well, added Nikola Orescanin, who is a student at Peacock Collegiate and a member of the Youth Advisory Committee.

“Turtle” by École St. Margaret, which includes a ton of different types of common trash.

Members of the Youth Advisory Committee, students from Caronport Elementary, and Cst. Kyle Cunningham pose in front of Caronport’s artwork, titled “The ‘Clawrageous’ Cougar. “It’s a really good thing, them getting to see that their work is appreciated,” said Orescanin. “[Taking part in this,] it’s kind of putting the idea of really good disposal of garbage in their heads. It helps for the future.” Several awards were handed out, including the Youth Advisory Committee Award, given to Caronport Elementary; the Junior Best Overall, given to École St. Margaret; Senior Best Overall, given to Riverview Collegiate. This is the first year that Caronport has participated, and they took home the trophy for Most Garbage Collected — an exciting moment for the kids involved. Both Dyck and Orescanin hope to see the annual exhibit continue, and maybe even expand to include more of the community. “We’re really impressed, and we’re really humbled by our community. A lot of ef-

fort does go in to create these pieces and it’s not like it takes a day; it takes a long time,” said Dyck. “So we really hope over the next few years it’s going to just keep going, keep growing.” “We don’t want the garbage on our streets.

“ISS” by École Ducharme is a replica of the International Space Station made from tinfoil and cardboard, to remind people that Earth is the only livable planet we have.

We want it to be disposed of in a proper way,” said Dyck. “And to create something out of that, using people’s creative abilities, I think it really has a lot of potential to become a community spread, widespread event people can take part in.” The Global Warning exhibit will remain in the lobby of the MJMAG from now until June 20.

“Enslaved by Technology” by Vanier Collegiate, a commentary on society’s technological dependence. 19062SC0

“Garbage of Eden” by Riverview Collegiate, with a patio umbrella substituting the structure of a tree.

Students from Sacred Heart School constructed an entire tree and nesting birds out of cardboard, a plastic tablecloth and to go coffee cups, titled “Supernatural.”

City Hall Council Notes Seniors’ groups ask council for financial support or they could shut down Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

It was standing room only at city hall as more than 85 residents jammed into council chambers to support Moose Jaw’s two struggling seniors’ organizations and their request for financial support. Representatives from the Cosmo Senior Citizens’ Centre (CSCC) and the Moose Jaw and District Seniors Association (MJDSA) spoke to city council on May 26, explaining their financial struggles and how they could dissolve in months. The association operates the Timothy Eaton’s Building on Main Street, while Cosmo operates a building on Third Avenue Northeast. In the end, council unanimously approved a motion to have administration convene a meeting within two weeks with the executives of both groups, members of city administration, and councillors, to explore options around the long-term viability of the two seniors’ centres in Moose Jaw, with a report to come back to council about what could be done. Cosmo centre The Cosmo Senior Citizens’ Centre was established in 1960 as a place for people to socialize and participate in recreational activities such as card games and shuffleboard, explained organization president Bill Smith. The Cosmo Centre also provides a hall where residents can hold weddings, fu-

Lori Friars, a spokeswoman for Moose Jaw and District Seniors Association, tells council the organization has only six months before it shuts down since it needs sustainable funding for the long-term. Photo by Jason G. Antonio nerals, dances, meetings and other activities. Some of these events attract people from across Canada, who stay in Moose Jaw and contribute to the economy, he continued. While Cosmo does some fundraising, it has had difficulty keeping up with increasing expenses, such as utilities, while it has also depleted half its reserves during the last few years, Smith said. These reserves are for emergency situations, such as fixing aging furnaces. Smith pointed out the municipality subsidizes other city-owned buildings, such as Mosaic Place and the library. All Cosmo wants is to be given the same consideration financially.

According to Cosmo’s financial statement for 2018, it had excess revenue of $8,836 at the end of last year. In comparison, it had a deficit of $44,291 in 2017. Seniors association The Moose Jaw and District Seniors Association has $40,000 left in savings, which would keep the doors open for another six months, said spokeswoman Lori Friars. It has been running a deficit of $40,000 every year ever since the provincial government cut funding to seniors’ organizations in 1994. It had built up a contingency fund of $177,000 through fundraisers, but has dipped into those savings to offset the deficits.

Its lease with the municipality expired in 2010 and has remained on a year-to-year tenancy at the same terms, she continued. Despite several attempts, the association has been unable to negotiate a new lease with the municipality or Moose Jaw Housing Authority. Parking is also a problem since there is very little near the Eaton’s Building, said Friars. The municipality promised in 1989 to give the organization an adjacent parking lot, but turned it into a public lot instead. Since parking costs have risen regularly, there has been a decrease in participation for events such as pickleball and dances. “Seniors are vulnerable to isolation and poor nutrition,” Friars said. “The centre offers a solution to both situations. We offer 24 programs every week, with 300 users. We (also) have a café that offers low cost breakfasts and lunches … “The loss of the centre would be a loss to the people of the city.” Financial statements from the seniors’ association show it had a balance of $755 in 2018, compared to $13,338 the year before. However, it used savings both years to wipe out those deficits. Membership at the seniors’ centre is 344, while Cosmo’s membership is 156. The next regular council meeting is Monday, June 10.

Struggling seniors’ groups might have to amalgamate to receive council support Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Two of Moose Jaw’s struggling seniors’ organizations may have to amalgamate if they are to survive or receive any type of financial support from the municipality. That was one idea floated during city council’s May 26 regular meeting, as council discussed ways it could support the Cosmo Senior Citizens’ Centre (CSCC) and the Moose Jaw and District Seniors Association (MJDSA). Council discussion Neither organization has said how much money it would need from council, said Coun. Scott McMann. Residents have also come to him suggesting the seniors’ groups amalgamate and combine operations. He noted both organizations run similar programs, so council needs to know whether they have made an effort to work together. “Amalgamation has been discussed, but that is as far as it’s gone,” said Bill Smith, president of Cosmo. He thought Cosmo needed $10,000 per year to survive. The seniors centre would need $60,000 every year going forward, said Lori Friars, spokeswoman for the seniors’ association. As far as combining both groups, both organizations “are quite far apart.” “We certainly do things differently and it would be a real big difficulty at this point to amalgamate,” she added. “But down the road, it could change.” Past decisions

Coun. Brian Swanson recalled that he was on city council 30 years ago when it was asked to fund the Eaton’s Centre building. He noted there was no desire between the seniors’ organizations even then to work together. “I realize it is still a sensitive issue. I do feel there is a role for the city, but I think somehow there has to be some way that there can be synthesis of the organizations, especially where we can show it would save money,” Swanson said. Cosmo’s utility costs last year were $$14,269, compared to $13,365 the year before. The association’s utilities last year were $55,476, compared to $49,244 the year before. Last year the seniors’ association received $20,065.30 in municipal funding, while Cosmo received $6,420.90. Swanson pointed out the municipality provides yearly grants to several organizations, such as: · $393,000 to the art museum · $376,000 to the cultural centre · $1.2 million to the library · $373,000 to the sports grounds · $108,000 to playgrounds · $566,000 to Mosaic Place · $91,000 to Tourism Moose Jaw · $323,000 to Wakamow Valley Authority Co-operation possible It is possible for both seniors’ organizations to work to-

gether since they are both advocating on an issue important to them, said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. Council provides funding to the library and other organizations because they are open to everyone, regardless of age. “There is some work to be done,” he continued. “I feel we live in a community (where) we have to honour those who have gone before us, and to live in a respectful community, where everyone, young and old, has a part to play in this city.” The seniors’ association’s agreement is complex, said Coun. Crystal Froese. She thought the way through this problem was for a new agreement to be signed between the association and municipality. “I think both of these (groups) are incredibly vital,” she added. “It is not about pitting one against another. It is about strengthening the relationship through both of these.” Council does not have much time to address this concern, said Coun. Dawn Luhning. She worried that this issue would become caught up in bureaucratic red tape; summer is also coming, while the organizations could shut down in a few months. Therefore, council needs to make a decision soon. “My concern right now is how long is it going to take? We need to start talking about this yesterday,” she added. The next regular council meeting is Monday, June 10.

City Hall Council Notes Proposed Traffic Bylaw changes focus on free parking permits, mandatory bike helmets Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Residents with a valid special needs vehicle sign or valid veterans’ licence plate could park for free at all metered areas for a maximum of three hours, if amendments to the Traffic Bylaw are approved. Those are some of the changes proposed to update the Traffic Bylaw. City council discussed the amendments during a recent executive committee meeting. Council is now looking for public feedback on the proposed amendments and could officially approve them in June. Feedback can be sent to, or by visiting Bylaw background

Council enacted the current Traffic Bylaw on June 11, 2018. With the bylaw in place and used efficiently for almost a year, the Transportation Services Advisory Committee (TSAC) suggested several amendments to ensure the bylaw continued functioning well. Although it took some time, city administration and the transportation committee recognized the parking challenges that residents with special needs have, along with the service that veterans have given to the community, said Coun. Chris Warren. Free parking permits

Free parking permits for metered parking could be issued to city council members, while the mayor could issue such permits to select groups. These groups include: MPs, MLAs, visiting dignitaries, Victim Services volunteer workers, non-profit health-care and continuous care groups, eligible city employees, and day-long passes to anyone the mayor deems fit. Bike helmets A voluntary fine option could be offered to people who violate the bicycle helmet provision. Under the bylaw, helmets are mandatory for everyone older than age 16. The voluntary fine would start at $20

and increase to a maximum of $50 if the fine has not been paid in a timely manner. Extra parking TSAC discussed opening up the parking lot on River Street behind the TD Bank for monthly parking permits. This would alleviate parking pressures, especially when there are events at Mosaic Place. However, the committee decided not to suggest this change since it was one business owner who had concerns, which stemmed from the 2015 Scotties curling tournament. The next executive committee meeting is Monday, June 10.

Record volume of water treated last year at Buffalo Pound water plant Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant (BPWTP) treated a record volume of water last year and exceeded the record set in 2017, according to the plant’s general manager. The plant produced 37,693.76 megalitres last year for Moose Jaw, Regina and SaskWater, explained Ryan Johnson. Broken down, Regina consumed 31,954.62 megalitres, Moose Jaw consumed 5,522.26 megalitres, and SaskWater consumed 216.88 megalitres. One megalitre is equivalent to one million litres. An Olympic-sized swimming pool holds 2.5 million litres. Regina consumed 2.7-per-cent more water last year than in 2017, while Moose Jaw consumed 2.7-per-cent less water in 2018 than the prior year, Johnson told city council during its May 27 regular meeting. The reason is demand was greater in Regina, while drought conditions also contributed to consumption levels. Due to the record amount of water produced and sold, revenues from this area for 2018 were $13.6 million, while expenses were $11.5 million, resulting in a surplus of $2.1 million. The overall company surplus for the year was more than $20 million. Buffalo Pound Lake is 2,900 hectares (116 acres) in size and can hold 90 million cubic metres of water. There were few problems during 2018 that affected the plant’s operations, aside from power outages in December caused by the buildup of rime frost on power lines, said Johnson. Meanwhile, water quality at Buffalo Pound Lake continued to improve, but the plant had

to draw more water from Diefenbaker Lake because of how dry conditions were. The Water Security Agency (WSA) mandates how high water levels have to be in the lake, Johnson told Coun. Chris Warren. As the lake draws down, water releases into the channel and then onto Buffalo Pound. The WSA identified issues at the plant from its inspections, Johnson said. One problem was the plant did not have an updated quality assurance control policy. A second issue was access hatches did not meet standards. Another issue was the process waste lagoons no longer met the permit to operate since solid waste was too high and was overloading the system. “This is all to do with undersized lagoons in the ’80s,” he added. Coun. Brian Swanson was concerned about the projected cost increases in water supply from the water treatment plant. The plant’s annual report indicates it charged $124 per megalitre in 2017, but that increased to $188 per megalitre last year and is anticipated to increase to $375 per megalitre by 2024, which would fund the corporation at a sustainable level. “There is a breaking point for those things. I believe we have to reallocate existing spending, as opposed to just adding onto people’s water bills and hope that things work out for us,” he said. Swanson added that it is about priorities and where to spend money. Since the municipality doesn’t have un-

City Hall Council Notes

Council approves changes to bylaws around property tax, sewer and water (May 24, 2019) Changes to the 2019 property tax bylaw, an amendment to the city administration bylaw, and an amendment to the sewer and water utility bylaw are now official. City council authorized all three bylaws during its most recent regular meeting after giving each three readings. Council voted 6-1 to approve the property tax bylaw and unanimously approved the amendment to the city administration bylaw, while it voted 6-1 on the sewer and water utility bylaw. Property tax bylaw The 2019 property tax bylaw: • Establishes the municipal rates of taxation for 2019 • Defines the classes and subclasses to be used for taxation purposes • Enumerates the mill rate factors to be applied to each subclass • Exclude assessments that generate less than $100 in municipal tax revenue from the supplemental roll for 2019 • Sets a uniform base tax for the purposes of contributing to the hospital fund reserve • Indicates the taxation rates for the school divisions as

Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express determined by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council The mill rate factor for some classes includes: • Residential, multi-unit residential, and condominium properties: 0.7636 • Commercial and industrial: 1.4435 • Golf courses: 0.4882 • Other agricultural land and improvements: 0.2782 City administration bylaw amendment The amendments in the revised City of Moose Jaw purchasing policy for administration include: • Change orders: These have been defined and authority limits have been established • Tender and bid disclosure: The successful bidder and bid value will be disclosed for tenders and request for proposals (RFPs) • Awarding of contracts: Some minor wording changes were made to this section to clarify the authority levels of department heads and the city manager • Trade agreement names: Several international trade agreements have changed their names, while the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade

Agreement (CETA) is new Sewer and water utility bylaw amendment The purpose of the amendments is to reflect the changes in the waterworks utility rate schedule and the sanitary sewer utility rate schedule made during the 2019 budget committee meeting on Feb. 25, says a city administration report. The rate increases have been applied only to the water supplied and not to the fixed monthly service fee, as was past practice. Changes include: • For external water users, such as co-ops and SaskWater, their rates will increase by 50 per cent to 2.25. This is the in-city rate and recognizes the contribution from the operating fund covered by the citizens of Moose Jaw. • Revenue from the rate increase will be directed to water infrastructure upgrades effective June • An agreement with 15 Wing will be drafted to reflect a 50-per-cent increase for out-of-city water rates, at 1.5 times the city rate, effective June 1.

Warriors development camp an exciting time for team, players Total of 23 players, families in Moose Jaw for special team orientation event Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

When Denton Mateychyuk was chosen by the Moose Jaw Warriors with the 11th overall pick of the 2019 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft, the waiting game and the anticipation officially began. The first date circled on his calendar? The Warriors annual development camp, taking place this past weekend at venues throughout the city.

First up, the team’s camp reception was a highly anticipated event where players chosen in the draft and listed by the team the previous year have a chance to meet team personnel and receive their first team jersey, along with other swag. Mateychuk was among those and as the first round pick, the final player to step on the stage.

“It feels awesome and I’m very honoured,” he said shortly after the photo ops and live interview with director of communications James Gallo. “I’ve been excited to get here, I’ve been counting down the days until this came and now it’s finally here and I’m going to enjoy it… it’s a beautiful place. The hotel we’re in is really nice; it’s a beautiful rink. It’s great to be here.” The entire weekend points in one direction – having a bit of fun and getting an idea of what the Warriors are all about. That includes touring various pertinent parts of the city, a couple of ice sessions at Barkman Arena in Caronport and even a Miller Express baseball game. Warriors 2018 first round pick Eric Alarie has seen it all before, having taken part in the camp last year, and was also looking forward to another kick at the can this time around. “I know the staff a bit more, so I feel a bit more comfortable around them and with the team this year,” Alarie said when asked about the difference. “And I’m a veteran this year so I’ll try and show some leadership there.” Alarie has other advantage over his compatriots – he’s already scored his first

Western Hockey League goal, that coming during the playoff series with the Saskatoon Blades back in March. “It was good to have a chance to play in the WHL, my line mates really helped me there,” Alarie said. “I was able to see the pace of the game and get familiar with the guys on the team.” The goal this time around? “I just want to go out there and have fun, work my (butt) off every single time and be a leader out there,” Alarie said. That’s what Warriors general manager Alan Millar is hoping to see, along with a whole bunch of other positive interactions between the team, coaches, staff and players in the community. “That’s what the weekend is all about,” Millar said. “Between video sessions and on-ice fitness training, nutrition, cooking… we want to get these young guys entrenched in our environment and understanding what it takes to play at this level. We want to give them some of those tools to take back home and learn and get better. “It’s great for them to get to know the community and our club and start the process of growing and having an opportunity to play in the Western Hockey League.”

Spartans pick up pair of Premier Prairie Classic wins Local squad wins U13 and U17 boys titles, Ballers reach U15 boys final Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw was a hotbed for club basketball in the province during May 25th weekend, as a total of 57 teams from throughout Saskatchewan took part in the Premier Prairie Classic Club Basketball Tournament at gyms throughout the city. That included no less than 16 Moose Jaw teams from the host Spartans, Ballers and Jam programs – and in no way were they simply there to fill out the draw. The Spartans ended up taking tournament victories in the Under-17 and U13 boys divisions, to go along with second place-finishes for the U11 boys, U13 girls and U15 girls. The Ballers, meanwhile, posted a series of wins of their own, including a second place showing in the U15 boys division. For the U17 boys Spartans – a squad composed mostly of players from the Central Cyclones provincial champions – it was a continuation of their success from high school. They defeated the Swift Current Surge 92-86 before downing the Ballers in the semifinals and battling through a war with the Queen City Hornets before taking an 83-79 win in the final.

Things got a bit physical in the U15 girls round robin game between the Moose Jaw Spartans and Moose Jaw Ballers.

The Moose Jaw Ballers took on the Regina Hornets in the U15 boys gold medal game and ended up taking second place in the tournament. “It was awesome, we played those guys earlier in the year and they beat us so this was good,” said Spartans coach Ryan Boughen. “We thought it would be a real-

ly good basketball game and it was; we’re getting better and the kids played really well. We had some good stops when we needed it, it was fun and great to see the guys come away with the win.” Queen City led much of the way through but a late push by the Spartans combined with the Hornets shooting going cold in the waning moments enabled Moose Jaw to pull away. For the U13 Spartans, it was a matter of keeping their solid weekend going in the

title game: they opened with a 91-21 win over the Prince Albert Lakers and defeated the Ballers 78-27 in the semifinals. They expected a tough contest in the final and got exactly that, eventually holding on for a 73-64 win over the Hornets. “That Queen City team was clobbering people and our kids were a little nervous,” Boughen said. “So we said ‘just go play’ and we look up and we’re in the game, and then we’re up by a couple and we kept playing hard. .. Some of those little guys haven’t had that experience where it’s THAT competitive, they’re tight and there’s a few tears, but they kept playing through it and it worked out.” All in all, the weekend was an impressive success despite the logistical nightmare of bringing together so many teams across so many divisions, a feat accomplished and then some by organizer Rhona Davey Johnson. “This is an awesome tournament, Rhona does a fantastic job organizing it,” Boughen said. “There were a lot of kids here playing basketball this weekend and that’s great to see.”

Miller Express close out impressive opening week with win Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Six runs in the second, seven runs in the third and that was about all the Moose Jaw Miller Express needed on the afternoon of June 2 against the Yorkton Cardinals. The Express pounded out 14 hits and built a 13-4 lead through three innings on their way to a 16-8 win over the Cardinals in Western Canadian Major Baseball League action at Ross Wells Park. Moose Jaw improved to 5-1 on the season with the win, but even more impressive has been the offence – the most recent victory marked the third game this season where they’ve scored 10 or more runs and marked backto-back nights of double digits. The Miller Express opened their season on Monday, May 29 and took a heart-stopping 6-5 win over the Melville Millionaires that featured a run-down tag-out at third to end the game. They then split a two-game set with the Swift Current 57’s, winning 10-2 on the road May 30 and following with an 8-7 loss in the rematch at Ross Well one night later. The Yorkton Cardinals were up next, and the big bats returned – with a 12-2 win on June 29 and Sunday’s impressive win to close out the week. “I think we’re just trying to get guys on, move ‘em over and get them in,” said Express veteran Blake Gallagher, whose second-inning home run kickstarted the most recent outburst. “Everyone is hitting really well right now so we’re going to try and keep this rolling as long as we can.” The damage is being done throughout the line-up, too. Seven-hitter Dougie DelaCruz was one of the team’s top offensive performers against Yorkton on Sunday, going 3-for-3 with two runs and three RBIs and boosting his average to .385 on the season. And that’s not taking into account the team’s overall power, as Tucker Zdunich became the fourth Express hitter – Michael Borst with three, Geordie McDougall and Gallagher -with a home run through the first six games after his seventh-inning round-tripper.

are also a touch high, with two games seeing eight opponent runs cross the plate, one of which resulted in their only loss this season. “Guys are just kind of getting back into the swing of things pitching and throwing so once we get a couple of games under our belt I’m sure we’ll be fine,” said Gallagher. The Express are back in action Tuesday, June 4 when they host Melville, kicking off a stretch of five games in five nights, three on the road– Wednesday, June 5 in Swift Current, Thursday, June 6 in Yorkton, Friday, June 7 in Regina – before returning home Saturday, June 8 to face the Red Sox. Game time is 7 p.m. at Ross Wells Park. Blake Gallagher delivers a pitch during first inning of the season opener against Melville.

“It’s one-through-nine, everyone can do it, so we’re just trying to get baserunners on so when we do hit those bombs there are a couple of RBIs there,” Gallagher said. If there is one concern, it’s that the team’s runs against

Junior golf tournament a chance to tee-off season Larissa Kurz The weather on May 28 was sunny and beautiful, and the perfect day for golf — a happy coincidence since Lynbrook Golf Club was buzzing with high school golfers from around the province for the annual Moose Jaw Invitational golf tournament. Organized through the Moose Jaw High School Athletics Association, this particular tournament functions as a fun, non-competitive way to get the golf season rolling. Tournament commissioner Vern Schafer has been organizing the invitational for a few years, but the tournament itself has been bringing golfers together from within the city and surrounding area for 18 years.

Ethan Fizell, from Swift Current.

The Lynbrook Golf Course welcomed around 50 high school golfers for the day. This year, around 50 high schoolers from Estevan, Swift Current, Notre Dame, Whitewood, Kipling, Assiniboia, and Moose Jaw dedicated a day to running the full course at Lynbrook. Schafer frames the tournament as a nostress chance to enjoy the sport, or to even give it a try for the first time. “There’s some that are just starting golfing, some have been golfing for years,” said Schafer. It’s also a chance to create connections, using an enjoyment of golf to create a community for the future. “Some kids are kind of looking forward to it. . . they’re so excited to see these kids that maybe they’ve seen before or somewhere else,” said Schafer. “It’s kind

But most of all, Schafer hopes that the Invitational gives golfers a chance to enjoy the game. “[Golf is] something that you can do for the rest of your life,” said Schafer. “It’s just a nice, relaxing kind of a game, where it’s just you against the course.

Block breaks district shot put record, just misses mark in discus Cornerstone Christian School midget girls competitor a medal favourite at provincials after season filled with record-setting performances Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Cornerstone Christian School throws specialist Aliyah Block had her eye on a pair of records at the South Central district track and field championships. One, the midget girls shot put, was almost a given: when you’ve been almost two metres better than the competition all season and nearly the same amount over the existing record, it seems to be more a matter of just showing up. Sure enough, the 15-year-old Grade 9 competitor cleared 11.62 metres to finish first by nearly 2.34 metres and broke the record of 10.38 metres set by Tessa Neufeld in 2017. Block didn’t have as much luck in the discus, as a tough headwind played havoc with the field and saw her hit 30.50 metres – a mere 65 centimetres behind the mark set by Megan Folk back in 2006. “It was good, I was very tired since it was really sunny and warm, so that affected it a little bit, but I’m pretty happy with how I threw because the last meet I only threw 25, which isn’t the best for me,” Block said of just missing the new mark. “Sometimes you’re on or just off, and I just didn’t quite get it today.” Block was definitely on when it came to the shot earlier in the day – and while her number compared to the record was aided by the recent shift from three kilogram to four kilogram balls by the SHSAA, that

She hit 30.50 metres in discus, missing the record by a metre. didn’t change her season-long total dominance in the event. While her goal was to rewrite both marks, Block is more than aware that success in the sport can be a day-to-day thing. “I was really hoping to break the records, because I have broken the records in practice, but a lot of it is just certain times you throw better than others; there’s not

much you can do about it and it just winds up better,” she said. “It’s kind of muscle memory since there’s not a lot you can control and there’s a lot of stuff to do, so you just have to kind of get used to it.” Block works extensively with her father, Cornerstone teacher and former strongman standout Al Block, and fellow coach Chris Pickering, a former Riverview shot

put specialist who currently holds the district senior boys record and competed in the CIS for the University of Regina. While Pickering’s tutelage helped her fine tune her approach and reach the level she has today in the shot, her dad has focused on helping her with the discus, ironically the lesser of his two throws back in the day. “He threw shot put but really sucked at discus as a kid,’ Aliyah said with a giggle. “It’s funny now because he coaches me in discus a lot and doesn’t know as much about shot put. He gives me a lot of critiques about discus since you can’t always tell what you’re doing wrong, where in shot put, I can usually tell if something isn’t right. “But he has a huge impact; it keeps me passionate about it and to keep working at it.” The key now will be to see how things go at provincials during the June 7-8 weekend at Gutheridge Field. “It all depends on the day, but I think I have a pretty good chance,” Block said. “I really like new experiences, so when it’s something fresh and new, I get more excited about it and unconsciously throw better. It’s adrenaline, kind of, and hopefully that’s what’ll happen and I’ll get pumped up and throw even better.”

Sorenson looking forward to first WCBL campaign with Miller Express New coach settling in to role with squad as busy summer of baseball kicks off Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

To forfeit the extreme heat and humidity in Florida or the Central Valley of California during summer months to coach one of the premier collegiate baseball leagues in the country here in Moose Jaw was the reasoning behind new head coach Rich Sorenson joining the Moose Jaw Miller Express for the Western Canadian Baseball League season, which kicked off their slate of 56 games this past week. The whole situation came out of the Express needing a coach quickly after original hire Tanner Spencer ended up taking a full time job with Minot State University. Millers general manager Cory Olafson placed a call to Fresno State assistant Eric Solberg to see if he had any ideas for a replacement, and Sorenson’s name quickly came up. “I had a previous commitment to Flori-

da, and (Solberg) came up to me and said ‘hey, by the way there’s this guy up in Canada who said he needs a coach’,’ Sorensen said, “and he said it would be a great experience and Cory is a great guy and we have a great relationship with him. “So Cory and I talked on the phone about 45 minutes and it was like we’d been friends for 15 years; it was that kind of communication and rapport we had, everything just clicked… It was kind of out of the blue, but Eric had a lot of good things to say and I trust him, so it seemed like a great fit.” Sorenson’s previous experience with summer ball certainly didn’t hurt, when as a youngster himself he played a season in Alaska and enjoyed his time in the far north. “So I’ve told guys that it’s such a bless-

Moose Jaw’s Filteau killed in plane crash Football, judo standout remembered for ‘zest for life’ by mom Nancy Rob Drinkwater - The Canadian Press

A small plane that crashed after taking off from Medicine Hat, Alta., was returning to Saskatchewan following a party to celebrate an upcoming wedding, says the mother of one of the three people who died. Nancy Filteau confirms her son, Justin Filteau, 26, a Saskatchewan football player and judo competitor, died when the plane went down on its way to Moose Jaw late Saturday. “The last picture I got of him was he was in the airplane – the private plane – and he had the headset and everything on, and he said, ‘This is cool. Maybe I have to become a pilot, too, now!’” “He had a zest for life and he filled every wakJustin Filteau/Facebook photo ing moment with everything and anything he could do.” The Transportation Safety Board said it was deploying a team of investigators to the crash site to determine what happened to the plane, which the board said was an American Aviation AA-5B. RCMP spokesman Curtis Peters said the plane took off around 10:15 p.m. from Medicine Hat Regional Airport en route to Moose Jaw, Sask. Peters said the flight was scheduled to be about 90 minutes long, but when it did not arrive, a search for the aircraft began. He said the plane was found Sunday morning in Irvine, Alta., about 30 kilometres east of Medicine Hat. All three people aboard were pronounced dead. Filteau said the other two crash victims were friends of her family’s. Justin Filteau played football for his high school, and later for the Saskatoon Hilltops and the University of Saskatchewan Huskies, winning numerous championships. A machinist by trade who lived in Saskatoon, his mother said Filteau believed in giving back to the sport, and coached the Valkyries, a women’s football team in the Western Women’s Canadian Football League. He also competed in judo like his mother, a former member of Canada’s Olympic judo team at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. The Valkyries posted on Facebook that they learned the news of their coach’s death shortly after arriving in Regina on Sunday morning, where they said Filteau was supposed to meet them. “His spirited, rambunctious and passionate heart is what drove us to the win today. We love you and miss you more than we will ever be able to express. This game and this season are dedicated to you,” the team’s post said. Nancy Filteau said her son was bullied as a young child. He later became involved with Football Saskatchewan’s Be More Than A Bystander program, which educates youth to speak up about violence and abuse against women. “He believed in the underdog. He believed in setting goals high and he pushed really hard. He was only 5’ 8” and he played against all the big linebackers,” she said. “I think the most important thing is to be strong. We have to work hard and push through because there’s nothing we can do to bring him back.”

ing and a privilege to play in a league like this, and when the opportunity came I jumped at it,” Sorenson said. That’s how, after a couple months of planning and preparing, the coach – who joins the team with nearly 30 years of experience from Little League to four-year colleges – utility player Nick Portillo and shortstop Andres Garza packed into a vehicle and made the four-day trek through the Rockies and western U.S. plains up to Moose Jaw. “We took it easy and it was a great trip,” Sorenson said. “Those guys hadn’t been outside of California much, so when they saw Idaho and the mountains and such they were like ‘wow, this is incredible’.” Since then, it’s been all about learning about the city and people and, oh yeah, baseball. The Express played their first game on Monday, taking a 6-5 victory over the Melville Millionaires, a contest that came after a quick turnaround from most of the players arriving in the city Monday. The key now will be learning what his troops are capable of and where they best fit the team. “It’s 56 games, that’s a long season, it’s

New head coach Rich Sorenson not like they’re not going to be playing or sitting all summer, they’ll all be playing quite a bit,” he added. With game one out of the way and a win in the books, there’s a ton of baseball ahead in the next two months. “I’m looking forward to it,” Sorenson said “Getting to know the guys, that’s what this is, the camaraderie these guys build and the relationships you have. Five, 10 years down the road you’ll run into them and they’ll still call you coach. And seeing them progress and seeing what we can do with this team, it’s going to be a lot of fun and we’re looking forward to a great season.”

South Central track and field team set for provincials Handful of records fall at district meet; SHSAA championships here June 7-8 Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

A warm, sunny and slightly windy day might seem like the perfect conditions to see all sorts of track and field records fall, but it proved a difficult task at the South Central district track and field meet at Gutheridge Field on Wednesday, May 29th. Only two records were broken and two tied in the day-long run of action, two of

Olivia Mowchenko of Peacock flies through a senior girls triple jump attempt on her way to winning the event, clearing 10.20 metres.

Briercrest Christian Academy’s Tessa Neufeld put together an impressive day of throws to win the senior girls shot put, with a 9.71 metre effort claiming gold.

those in the bantam division. Gravelbourg’s Olivia Brisebois set a new record in the bantam girls javelin, clearing 24.77 metres to edge Holly Knudsen’s mark of 24.69 set in 2013. Shaina Gee from Assiniboia Elementary came within a hair’s breadth of a new mark in the bantam girls 80 metre hurdles, recording a time of 14.1 seconds to tie the record set by Bailee Switzer in 2001. Cornerstone’s Aliyah Block set a new record in the midget girls shot put (see related story) while Maurissa Metz of Vanier also settled for a tie in the midget girls 80 metre hurdles, with her time of 12.7 seconds putting her in the books alongside Kristin Peter and J. Ellertson, who both ran the same time way back in 1989.

Like close races? The junior boys 200 metres final was as tight a finish as could be, with Central’s Kaleb Schanowski (far left) winning in 24.9, the same time as Gravelbourg’s Tristen Boire (far right). The difference between first and fourth? 0.1 seconds.

Team Moose Jaw was all alone and then some at the final handoff as Vanier’s Ryann Handley sent Peacock’s Alexis Thibodeau away with a substantial lead in the senior girls 4x100 metres.

Bengough’s Jasmine Lewis clears the bar at 1.46 metres on her way to winning the midget girls high jump.

Three athletes swept all four of their events and will represent South Central in their disciplines: Vanier’s Zidane Closs in midget boys (200 metres, 400 metres, long jump, high jump), Mossbank’s Payton Miller in junior boys (100 metre hurdles, long jump, triple jump and javelin) and Peacock’s Alexis Thibodeau in senior girls (100 metres, 200 metres, 80 metre hurdles and high jump). The Saskatchewan High School Athletic Association provincial championships run Friday, June 7 and Saturday, June 8 at Gutheridge Field. Check out for a full list of winners in all divisions as well as a rundown of the South Central district track and field team.

Central’s Crozier Holmes hands off to teammate Kienan Kleisinger as the Moose Jaw senior boys 4x100 metre team posted a commanding win.

Peacock’s Brooklyn Roney had a lonely run down the final lap backstretch on her way to winning the 1,500 metres in a time of 5:56.7.

Crozier Holmes leads the field down the stretch in the senior boys 200 metres and would win in 23.0 seconds.

Central distance specialist Kal McGillis (right) would go on to win the senior boys 1,500 metres in a time of 4:32.6, just ahead of Morgan Kilgour (left) in third and second place finisher Sam Moyse of Vanier.

Tree of Memory dedication ceremony held in Crescent Park Special event celebrates the deceased and their families served by Jones-Parkview Funeral Home Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

For nearly two decades, the Tree of Memory ceremony has taken place in parks in and around Moose Jaw, offering a chance for those who have lost loved ones to create a special memory. One that will last for all time. The 19th annual dedication took place Sunday, May 26 in Crescent Park, the Parkview Funeral Services. Close to 100 people took part in the event, taking advantage of the outstanding weather to watch, listen and participate in the tree-planting project designed to give patrons a memory and legacy that will last generations. “It was beautiful,� said organizer Della Ferguson, the longtime grief support worker and funeral celebrant at Jones Funeral Home. “The weather played into our hands today, making it accessible for people to attend and there’s something about seeing these families come together and seeing they’re not alone in their loss, and coming together for a positive reason that is looking at growing forward and using a tree to symbolize that. each face I look at is as a story of a loved one they’re carrying with them and it’s a meaningful experience.� The dedication was part of a full program ron Pritchard in memory of her son Jason Pritchard; a performance of ‘Make Me a Channel of Your Peace’ by Stella Salido-Porter in memory of her father, Dr. Domingo Salido and a reading of the hon-

The event closed with the planting of the tree – a Northern Pin Oak -- which included the mixing of special messages written to the deceased by their loved one into the planter and tree transplant hole. That way the roots of the tree will spread through the messages for eternity. “It’s rooted in love,� Ferguson said. “There’s just something about expressing ourselves, we encourage that in so many ways and so that message of love is a way of giving that expression and connecting themselves to that tree.� The tree was planted near the Moose Jaw Lawn Bowling Club on the east side of Crescent Park. It will grow to a height of around 26 feet in the next 10 years and

eventually reach as high as 72 feet at its tallest, with a spread in the 50-foot range. The Tree of Memory project started at the turn of the century when Don Jones was the general manager of Jones Funer-

On the Front Porch by Wanda Smith

YMCA BASP Concerned Parents speak their concerns Submitted

Identity Crisis Just recently, I completed an assignment that required writing my identity statement. “Game Changers,” a leadership course I took several years ago has been a life message that I am working to incorporate in my daily journey. I have collected prophetic words, inheritance scriptures, songs and meaningful notes or words that have been given to me as well as recognized my strongest passions. I then spent some time, with the guidance of Holy Spirit, and compiled an identity statement. This statement is written with the knowledge of this is how heaven knows me. This is how God sees me. It has given me greater confidence to just be me, the real me. Did you know that God doesn’t look at our shortcomings or failures? Did you know that He looks at us through Jesus, so what He sees is actually Jesus in us? When we’ve made Jesus Lord of our life, He sees all the good... the fulfilled words over us... living in right standing with God (righteous as though we’ve never sinned). He only sees what He’s created us to be. When we get a true revelation of that, we will never have an identity crisis! We can fully live out our life’s purpose with confidence because all of heaven is cheering us on to fulfill that calling. We don’t have to have society’s approval. We don’t have to have our partner’s approval. We don’t even need to look for God’s approval... because it’s already been given to us! The identity message is being taught throughout the world right now. You may like to check out Graham Cooke’s teaching on the web or YouTube for a deeper understanding of what I’m sharing. Graham teaches us that “our true identity is made up of who we are on earth and how we are known in heaven.” There is no negative word that has been spoken against you that can have a hold on you. There is no negative experience that you can’t be free of. That’s because all of that negativity was taken to the Cross and in exchange, you received the very life of God. It does not matter how other people see you. It matters how you see yourself. Romans 6:6 reiterates that when we are born again, our old man dies. “...knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin.” Friends, our old man is dead. We have all of heaven rooting for us and all of earth waiting for us to emerge into our full identity. Don’t give your past anymore thought. Just start where you are at and begin practicing the real you... the one that heaven knows. This is going to take some faith... and some thought... some research on becoming an overcomer and some revelation from Holy Spirit. Your first step is to gather your inheritance words or verses or songs that have been spoken over you. If you don’t have any, spend time with Jesus and ask Him for some. Ask a friend to pray over you. “Father, I ask that you will open up revelation knowledge in these dear readers60 to know how theyStreet are known by You. Take them on Athabasca East a journey 306-692-0533 of Your love. Reveal how You see them and Minister: Rev. Jim to Tenford then give them the tools fulfill their destiny on this Music Director: Karen Purdy earth.” Amen. Friend, you were created for such a time as this! It’s time to arise shine and live out the real , 2017 Sunday, May 14thand Worship Service 10:30am you. Be blessed! & Sunday School

A few questions and concerns from BASP parents based on news articles and conversations from all medias. -The board voted at the end of March yet didn’t try to get help or inform the employees & parents. They should have had a plan in place for the before and after school program (BASP) if it was that many months ago instead of leaving it until after the announcement was made. -The YMCA made 2.3 million from daycare and 900 k from membership last year. How can operating expenses be that high? -What about our fees and costs if a new location for the BASP is found? Small Moose Jaw is a lot different than Regina, the capital of the province. We have different needs and budgets. -Had to vote to close the YMCA or the board members could be personally sued if it went to bankruptcy. -The board members were told that the BASP was ok and they had a plan in place. -City owns the Fairford building so they should fix it instead of it coming out of the YMCA’S budget like a lot of the articles say. -Didn’t give some staff proper notice or severance packages. -Leak about the closure to before telling staff, members and parents. -Jeff Fox had a plan in place a year ago but no one listened and now we lose a huge part of the community. -Need to know what the plan is before end of June in order to get the school buses lined up or it will take 2-4 weeks to get the kids on the bus in September. That also means the 50+ families need to find reliable daycare in that time too which is not easy in this town. -What about the summer day camps? Will there be any next year? Numerous home daycares close over the summer so lots of families depend on those camps. -No longer transporting the kids to and from school even if they are attending the licensed facility. So, drop them off at daycare then go back to take them to school, go back to work and then do it again after school? Employers will not allow that. Besides the licensed facilities are rumoured to all be full for school age spots. What are the numbers? How many of these 50+ kids will be accepted? Doesn’t that also mean hiring more staff to accommodate more kids? -Said no childcare will be affected and no jobs lost. 50+ won’t have care and a bunch of people lost their jobs. -If they want to have the program continue and are looking at options, why lay off the program director? Wouldn’t they want to keep her on to help with the set up and transition? -The kids and parents adore the workers and especially Jenna. They are the heart and soul of the program yet they were tossed aside. If you find a space, why wouldn’t the laid off staff get their jobs back? Instead they were told they would have to apply? Many of the school age leaders at the BASP have been working there for years, working through school providing caring and quality programs. How are these workers not considered for their own jobs first? Will Regina staff have seniority over Moose Jaw locals? Our children trust and love the workers they have now. It’s not just about having a random place for them to go. It’s a family there. -The Regina YMCA now owns the daycare spots here and they can take them away any time they decide that they need them in Regina. -In one breath we were told you are looking at alternative places for our program and in the next you said you’ll be there to transition us to daycares throughout Moose Jaw. Which is it daycares or a new building location? How do our kids get to school from the daycare? Kids need stability...not the unknown of where they will be and who will be taking care of them. -Summer camp information was released SO late and we’re only getting information about the buses now.

All Are Welcome!

We are told there is no transportation after June 28th so how are our kids getting to excursions? What if there are storms? Our weather is unpredictable. What if a strong storm wasn’t predicted and comes in at 2pm? Parents can’t leave work to drive them to a different/ unknown location. -If the BASP at St Mary’s is staying open, where will the kids go all day on non-school days? What about weeks off school? If you open new spots in different school locations, the same question remains. We brought our kids here because they accommodate real life. Real working parents. We need to have somewhere for our kids on random days off as well as the school breaks in December, February and April/May. Update- as of 10:00am May 31, 2019: The licensed YMCA daycares are full and do NOT have any available spots to accommodate the 50+ kids that need care. We were told that this would be an option for us.

Teresa Kindrat JULY 4, 1960 - MAY 25, 2019

After a long and courageous battle with cancer, Teresa passed away peacefully at the Wigmore Hospital May 25th. Teresa leaves to mourn her daughter Jennifer Kindrat, granddaughter Jade Kindrat (Dawson), Mother Genevieve Larson, Sister Kathy Bennett (Lyle), Brother Lyle Kindrat, Brother Michael Kindrat, Sister Christine Kerber (Don), numerous nephews and nieces, great nephews and nieces and special friends. The greatest love in Teresa’s life was her daughter and granddaughter. Her happiest moments came from time spent with them. Born and raised in Moose Jaw, Teresa was a proud member of the Eagles and Royal Purple over the years. Teresa was a fiesty little woman with a contagious smile. Stubborn to the end, her body conceded to cancer long before her mind did. She was a fighter and a true inspiration with the spirit and strength she showed battling this disease. She will be missed. Thank you to Dr. Janzen as well as Dr. Heatherington and all the nurses at the surgical ward for the excellent end of life care. Also thank you to Teresa’s neighbours who were there to help her when family count be. As per Teresa’s wishes there will be no funeral.

Thank You! The family of the late

MOORE It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of Phyllis Mary Moore of Regina, SK on Saturday, May 25th, 2019. Phyllis was born to Louis and Lottie Wagner (Faulkner) in Markinch, SK on February 13th, 1925. The family moved to Tugaske, SK where Phyllis completed her grade 12. Following the completion of her schooling, she worked in Wiggins Store and the Royal Bank. In 1943 Phyllis married Ralph Moore, and they were married for 73 years. Phyllis loved music, starting to take piano lessons at an early age. She played in Jim Losie’s orchestra in the mid 40’s. She also gave music lessons to many Tugaske children over the years. She was active in the United Church as an organist for more than 40 years, as choir leader, as Sunday School teacher, and as a mid-group leader. She was a member of the Eastern Star and served on the executive of the Hospital Auxiliary, as well as Donors’ Choice. Phyllis enjoyed bridge, square dancing, gardening, and spending special time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband, Ralph; as well as her parents, and her siblings Gordon (Ivy) Wagner, Bernice (Albert) Sexsmith, and Carl (Tess) Wagner. Phyllis will be greatly missed by her sister-in-law, Dorothy Nicholson; daughters, Patricia (Gordon) Kosloski and Judy Moore (Erna Wiebe); and son, Garth (Beverly). She will be remembered by her grandchildren: Doug (Judy) Kosloski, Dawn Kosloski (Drew Smith), Monique Moore, Quentin (Andrea) Moore, and Preston Moore; and great-grandchildren: Tayler and Brennan Kosloski, Parker, Lleyton and Benson Moore. The family thanks the Staff of College Park II for their kindness and special care given to Phyllis during her stay there, especially during her final days. A Graveside Service will be held at a later date with a tea to follow at the Tugaske Community Hall. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane.

James Ritchie (Jim), aged 79 years of Moose Jaw, SK., passed away peacefully at Pioneer Lodge Moose Jaw, on Thursday, May 30th, 2019. Jim immigrated to Canada in April 1956 with his Mum and three siblings to join their dad who had set up the family home in Moose Jaw. Jim graduated from Peacock Technical School. In 1959 he began his training as a Psychiatric Nurse (RPN) at the Saskatchewan Training School (Valley View Center), obtained his Registration as a Psychiatric Nurse in 1961. He retired in 1995. His nursing skills and dedication speak for themselves as shown by cards and notes received from loved ones of those he cared for, and voiced by past students, who are grateful to him for the mentoring they received. He was a talented individual, teaching himself to play the guitar, his choice of music was most eclectic. He was an avid sky diver, a member of the Moose Jaw Sky Diving Team, (breaking several records as they soared over the Saskatchewan landscape); a member of the Saskatchewan Gun Club; the Moose Jaw Pipe Band, (playing the pipes over the phone to Mum as she proudly followed his growing repertoire); a member of the Royal Canadian Legion, a member of the colour party and the annual poppy drive. He loved golfing, fishing and camping. Exercise was a key part of his daily regimen, walking 5 Km every morning, winter and summer. He was always the big brother to his two siblings, offering a helping hand when needed. He described himself as a simple man, a “home body” who enjoyed the simple things in life. His thoroughness in investigating to understand all that he undertook was truly amazing. Jim is predeceased by his parents and younger brother, Peter (Scotty). He is survived by his twin sister, Jean and his brother, David; nephews, Arleigh and Lawson and niece, Debbie and their families will greatly miss him, but will carry him in our hearts always. The family wish to thank the Pioneer Lodge staff, for their compassion and caring of Jim, the local hospital ICU surgical staff and medical team, the FHHR home care support staff and all the auxiliary staff (paramedics, pharmacists, receptionists, laboratory personnel). We would also like to thank the managers at Chez Nous, Crescent Park Villa, Marcie’s Private Care Home and the GM and support staff at West Park Crossing; great neighbours, Lorne and Jan and best friends, Brian and Jeanie. A Celebration of James’s Life will be held on Thursday, June 13th, 2019 from 2:00 – 4:00 PM at the Moose Jaw Legion Hall, 268 High St W, Moose Jaw SK. Legion Rites will be conducted by Moose Jaw Legion Branch #59.

It was in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan where Pat was born, that she met and married the Reverend Tom Allen whose life and ministry she shared at Saint Michael and All Angels in Prince George, British Columbia, and then at Holy Trinity Cathedral in New Westminster. Following his early death in 1990, Pat chose to remain in New Westminster and to exercise a life of service amongst the people who were now her friends. For over thirty years Pat quietly bore witness to a Gospel of love by simple acts of kindness and a deep awareness of others in the world about her. Pat is survived by her sisters, Marg Ciona, Betty Speers and Wilma Taylor. Predeceased by her parents Bill and Lila Harrison, sisters, Nellie Moore and Dorothy Arnett. Her funeral took place on Friday, May 10, at 11:00 a.m. at Holy Trinity Cathedral, 514 Carnarvon Street, New Westminster. Her remains will rest in the Cathedral Memorial Garden near Tom’s.
