Take a Kayak for KidSport an easy way to test the waters paycation. Larissa Kurz

Don’t pay for 3 months. Ask about our payment plans.


Maybe you’ve paddled before, or maybe you’re a first-timer interested in learning the secrets of kayaking — either way, Kayak for KidSport welcomes you to join the fun and support local kids in their sporting dreams. On July 14, down at the pier by the Kiwanis Pavilion in Wakamow Valley, KidSport Moose Jaw has planned a top-notch morning of canoeing and kayaking for all ages. For $20 per adult or $30 per family, participants are invited to a free breakfast before they take to the lake from 9:30 until 11am. All the necessary equipment will be provided — boats, paddles, and life preservers. Participants are welcome to bring their own gear down as well, as the event is open to paddlers of all experience levels. Bryan VanTassal, from Boh’s Cycle and Sporting Goods, will be providing his expertise and guiding kayakers through the ins and outs of the sport before they hit the lake on their own. For those who want to take a shot at winning some great prizes — like a kayak, mountain bike, paddle board and gear, among others — there will be an easy obstacle course set up to try out those water skills. Whoever brings back the most markers from the course has a

chance to take home one of the prizes, generously donated by Boh’s Cycle and Sporting Goods. John Eberl, chair at Moose Jaw KidSport, wanted the inaugural event to offer something new and different for families to try out. Kayak for KidSport has also planned a corporate challenge from 11am to 12:30pm, inviting local businesses, companies, or groups of friends to compete for the #K4K Trophy and bragging rights. A $250 donation to KidSport is the entry fee, and the winners will take home the trophy, some memorable t-shirts, and have a $500 donation to the charity of their choice, in their name. Alongside that donation will be another $500 donation, in their names, to KidSport. All of the proceeds from the event will go directly back into KidSport Moose Jaw, to help put local kids into sports programs. Registration isn’t required, but Eberl encourages families and companies to sign up and offer their support for the KidSport program through the link on their Facebook page. For more information about the event, contact John Eberl at KidsSport at or by calling (306) 540-4153.

Fitness equipment for seniors coming to Crescent Park Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Instead of sitting and watching their grandchildren play at the Crescent Park spray pad, seniors will soon have the option to use fitness equipment to stay active as well. At least four pieces of equipment — a stationary bike, pull-up bars, an arm bike, and a set of stairs for step-ups — could be installed adjacent to the spray pad as early as next spring, after the committee for the 2018 Saskatchewan Senior Fitness Association 55-plus Provincial Summer Games presented a cheque worth $8,819.86 to the City of Moose Jaw’s parks and recreation department on June 20. This proposed equipment is similar to the gear installed along the Spring Creek pathway between Ninth Avenue Northwest and Thatcher Drive West. One aspect of the provincial senior summer games is to leave behind a legacy project, explained Crystal Froese, committee chairwoman. The project is meant to inspire seniors to continue to be more active.

While searching for a legacy project, the committee thought Crescent Park would be a good location since there are more than a dozen seniors’ apartments surrounding the park, she continued. Committee members also though it would be positive to provide outdoor equipment for this age demographic. “Seniors can come and bring their grandkids, and as they’re playing on all the fun equipment here, can also do a little bit of (exercising),” said Froese. “Or even seniors who are taking their daily walk through the park can stop here and utilize this equipment and be outside and enjoy the fresh air.” The money the committee presented to the parks and recreation department came from participants’ entry fees and funding from sponsors, less the expenses from organizing the event. The parks and rec department is pursuing other grant funding as it relates to seniors, which could double the value of the cheque the summer games committee donated.

Carbon tax, lost canola markets could cause farm crisis By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express The federal carbon tax is EXPRESS confusing to farmers trying to determine how it will impact their costs, says a Moose Jaw farmer. “It’s hard to get a handle on what it’s costing us,” Vaughan Crone told the Farming for Profit conference in Moose Jaw. He has asked fertilizer and chemical dealers if the tax will be separate on invoices. “They haven’t been told. It might be another hidden tax.” Fortunately, the Agricultural Producers of Saskatchewan (APAS) has tried to determine an average cost, but costs vary between farmers depending on location and such matters, On fuel he figures the increased cost will be $2 an acre going to $4 an acre in 2022. APAS data indicates the carbon tax will cost inputs an extra $10 an acre, increasing to $19 an acre by 2022 when it is phased in at $50 a tonne of emissions. Between carbon tax and loss of grain markets over diplomatic disputes, he predicted a potential farm crisis in coming years. “I sometimes think our government doesn’t understand that” and that government doesn’t understand how to deal with the situation where seven countries with diplomatic disputes have reduced imports of grain. While canola prices have recovered some from the lows since China refused shipments, the price is still $30 to $50 a tonne below the high of $500 to $550 a tonne. Given the poor grain crops this year even with the recent rains “canola is the savior crop for many of us. It will pay the bills.” He advocated more financial assistance to growers as the Western Wheat Growers Association has suggested. New markets are being sought “but the reality is that takes time.” On Coffee Row, Crone says, some farmers wonder why the federal cabinet shuffle appointed a female agriculture minister when “unfortunately the culture in some of the countries we deal with is that leaders won’t listen to a female.”

The committee for the 2018 Saskatchewan Senior Fitness Association 55-plus Provincial Summer Games presented a cheque worth $8,819.86 to the City of Moose Jaw’s parks and recreation department on June 20. The money will go to installing fitness equipment for seniors in Crescent Park adjacent to the spray pad.

Farm commodity prices may swing up from drought, excessive rainfall By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express



EXPRESS Drought-like conditions on the Canadian Prairies may decrease crop yields this fall but farmers who manage to grow a crop, or have grain in the bins, may see some pretty decent prices. Weather conditions in a number of agricultural regions around the globe could put upward pressure on commodity prices. The United States experienced record rainfall averaging 37.68 inches in the last 12 months. Eighteen states in the midwestern and eastern farm belt have around 124 per cent of normal rainfall. The rain has delayed seeding with soggy fields and flash flooding. Key farm states impacted include Iowa, Indiana, Ohio, Kansas, Michigan, and Nebraska while drought still affects parts of Texas, California and the east coast near Florida. These conditions will affect yields and which crops are planted. In Australia, a major competitor of Canada for Asian grain markets, severe drought has forced the country to import wheat for the first time in 67 years. Two back-to-back years of drought are

blamed for that purchase from Canada. Farmers down under grow about three per cent of world wheat crop, exporting almost one-third of their harvest. Small shifts in production can change prices sharply. Crop conditions appear good in most of Europe, Northern Africa, Russia and former Soviet Union countries of Ukraine and Kazakhstan, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. India, a significant market for Canadian lentils, peas and chickpeas until it imposed import tariffs, is a different story. The monsoon season has not delivered usual amounts of rain for crops with pre-monsoon rains dropped one-quarter less than usual. While the India Meteorological Service predicts 96 per cent of normal monsoon rains, one-third of the country is experiencing abnormal to severe drought. South American crop conditions are good but wet weather has delayed harvest of summer grains and oilseeds in Argentina. Drought impacted rice crops in the Philippines while China has good growing conditions. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Youth Apprenticeship scholarships awarded to local students Larissa Kurz

The Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Commission (SATCC) awarded over 100 graduating students with a Saskatchewan Youth Apprenticeship Industry Scholarship this year, and three of those lucky students were right here in Moose Jaw. Central Collegiate students Aman Ahmed and Mohamed Rizvi each received a scholarship towards their interest in automotive service, and Vanier Collegiate Institute student Danton Hartman received a scholarship for his future career as an electrician. Each recipient must participate and complete the SYA program and indicate their intent to pursue a career in the skilled trades. For Hartman, the SYA program was a way to preview the different trades available, and to get a feeling for what it would be like working in his trade of interest. “The program was really awesome for me actually; I really enjoyed the training I got. I was still in high school

but still got a feeling for the trades and what I can expect after high school,� said Hartman. “I really think it’s just a great opportunity for anyone that is even remotely considering trades, because even if half-

way through, you find out that the trades aren’t for you, then you didn’t really waste anything,� Hartman added. “You just have to learn more about what you could be interested in after school.� Participating in the program helped Hartman decide to pursue training as an electrician. Over 3,300 students were enrolled in the SYA program in 2018-19, and those who go on to register as an apprentice within 5 years of graduation are granted 300 trade time hours as well as their registration fee and Level 1 training tuition waived. Hartman is set to begin as an electrician at the beginning of July, and he’s grateful for not only the scholarship but the aforementioned benefits. “Obviously the scholarship is great, it helps with schooling,� said Hartman. “[The hours and waived fees] are both really great opportunities, really. It really gets your foot in the door.�

Gravelbourg festival celebrates cuisine from 11 countries By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

Every year the Friday night before the Gravelbourg Summer Solstice Festival, the community celebrates its many cultures with an international food fest. Visitors can try an array of foods from different countries in the region. “We try to have something Band different every year,� said Paul Boisvert, publisher of the Gravelbourg Tribune. The community of just over 1,100 people had food representative of 11 countries. While farmers munched on food samples, they discussed the two inches of fresh rain that brought hope for parched crops. From Asia came Philippine pancit noodles and pork in steamed rice buns and samosa rolls from East India. From Africa came Tunisian fried chicken and a cool ginger drink. Holland’s booth ran out of crepes. European countries included Ireland, Irish stew; France, Tourtiere meat pies; Hungary, cabbage rolls; Germany, sauerkraut and wieners; Ukraine, desserts; and Italy, pizza. A Mexican booth served tacos and a delicious chocolate cake. Ron Walter can be reached at

Aging is a fact of life and retirement is just another stepping-stone in the process. I’m not there yet but I often think of when and what it will be like. There are a large number of individuals that continue to work into their golden years. It seems many are rethinking retirement. Humans are living longer than in the past, and Joan Ritchie the mindset seems to be that EDITOR through a good number of the senior years, people are continuing to be active and productive. I often think about the individuals who have a bucket list to get to someday when they have the time, and that time is usually set in the future when there are no longer commitments to a career or job…otherwise retirement. The sad thing is, most of us have heard of some sad stories of what happens when these people get to the goal of retirement and the start of a whole new phase in their life; either aging has taken a toll on the body and they are no longer able to travel or fulfill their bucket-list desires or sudden death often occurs. I want to be the kind of person that lives life to the optimum all along the journey and stops to smell the flowers along the way. A good principle of life I learnt many years ago is to take time along the journey throughout the working years to enjoy the fruits of my labour. It’s the carrot dangling in front of the horse that keeps them enjoying the steady plodding along…and enjoying a carrot now and then only makes the thought of another one that much sweeter. Therefore, if you reward yourself with something now and then, whether it is a holiday, getaway, a piece of clothing or whatever, then the effort you put towards making the money to get the reward won’t be as bad as you thought. I also think that an individual’s job should not be just a job but linked to their passions in life, fulfilling internal desires that make a working life happy and fruitful. To be able to enjoy one’s work and the rewards it brings is just as much a blessing as retirement and the rewards it brings I think of individuals that I know that basically have fallen off the radar of life after they retire; they become reclusive and even depressed because the social stimulation and regular schedule are no longer there to give structure to their lives. In light of the retirement years somewhere in the future, individuals can do a lot to prepare for them: • Plan financially throughout the working years to be able to live the lifestyle you want • Maintain friendships and avoid isolation • Maintain your fitness, physically, socially, and intellectually. And to those that are now enjoying retirement, keep on living a vibrant life doing all the things you have wanted to do! Carpe diem!

NDP health critics hearing cries for accessibility in health-care services Larissa Kurz

NDP critics Vicki Mowat and Danielle Chartier made a stop in Moose Jaw for a “health check-up” with the citizens in the community, one of the many public forums aimed at hearing the concerns residents have regarding health care in the province. Mowat, health critic, and Chartier, mental health and addictions and seniors critic, stopped at the Moose Jaw Express prior to the town hall meeting to outline the key issues they have been hearing from other communities across Saskatchewan. Topics in the spotlight included mental health care, addictions support, and, overall, the recurring issue of accessibility to services — which popped up in talks about ambulance fees, ER backlogs, and overflowing addictions programs. The NDP caucus is calling for more concrete action regarding health care issues, including a more solid stance of agreement for universal Pharmacare and a recognition of lacking resources for successful addictions treatment. Ambulance accessibility oncerns about the cost of ambulance rides have been in discussion since 2017, as Saskatchewan is tagged as one of the most expensive provinces to take an ambulance. Currently, there is no cap on the cost of ambulance services, and patients are charged for inter-facility transfers. Instances of people refusing care and driving themselves to the hospital, in order to avoid ambulance bills, are coming to light too often, said Mowat. “Under a system of Medicare, this is the last type of arrangement we would expect to see,” said Mowat. “[The provincial government] has tried to work to standardize contracts across the province but it’s not addressing a lot of the very significant concerns.” Burgeoning wait-times Opposition critics are also hearing complaints about ER wait times, and the long lists of patients waiting to get into specialists for treatments. Mowat criticized the provincial government for what she calls “backtracking” on the initiatives to reduce wait times in emergency rooms, from reducing waits entirely to seeing “some reduction.” “We need to see targeted initiatives toward reduction of wait times,” said Mowat. “This government hasn’t been



RE: Council’s investment decisions The article in the Moose Jaw Express June 19th edition (Page A23), I thought was well-written and informative. I hope all M.J. residents read it and are concerned. The fact that this city has a 100-million-dollar surplus on the books blows my mind! Where did this money come from and what is Moose Jaw doing with it? Why are we facing numerous tax increases to pay for things like infrastructure upgrades, the new hospital, new water lines and other things. These are major upgrades and funding them at least partly should be taken from the 100 million in taxes we have already paid, if not, why not? The Bank of Canada reports a “basket” of goods and services that cost $100 million in the year 2000 would cost $143 million in 2019; this is regular inflation and as accurate a number as we can find. Now numerous articles are

successful in doing that, and we need to be able to call them on that publicly and really work toward how we’re going to reduce those waits in the future.” Chartier noted the addictions programs are also seeing wait times of several weeks for both detox programs and rehabilitation spots — which is not ideal for a province in the midst of a crystal meth and opioids crisis, said Chartier. Care facilities dealing in mental health and addictions are seeing patients forced into shorter stays due to waitlists and a shortage of beds, which often results in repeat visits. “Yes, they’ve added new beds this year, but there were fewer addictions beds prior to this budget than there were five years ago, and we’re in the middle of an addiction crisis,” said Chartier. Facilities are reporting an increase of patients admitted for crystal meth use, from 3 percent to 30 percent, and Chartier is calling for more investment into resources to address the issue. She notes that there is less than $10 million in the new budget specifically for new mental health service. “This is a government who is days late and dollars short,” said Chartier. “[We’re] glad to have some money spent in mental health and addictions, but it isn’t enough and we are playing catch-up now.” Maintaining supports for seniors Chartier also asserts that there is a place for the government to step up in light of the struggles of the two seniors organizations in Moose Jaw, who are floundering under financial strain. “[These associations] keep people out of the hospital. It keeps them at home, engaged and connected in their community,” said Chartier. “I think that the provincial government has a role to play in helping support seniors.” The issue of struggling seniors associations is one that both Mowat and Chartier expected to hear from Moose Jaw residents. The health check-ups will continue across the province through the summer, and the opposition critics will be using what they hear to inform policy decisions and future legislative sessions.

out there speaking of how fast construction costs, particularly on road construction, are escalating. The mention is made of double that of inflation…possibly even triple. We could have done all the infrastructure upgrades over the years making much better use of these funds and saving the taxpayers of this city a lot of money. I think Dawn Luhning is a fine councillor, hard working and dedicated but her attitude regards questioning by taxpayers is concerning.

Conservative plan to protect environment

Tom Lukiwski Report

MP Moose Jaw-Lake Centre-Lanigan Tom Lukiwski, Member of Parliament for Moose Jaw – Lake Centre - Lanigan, recently announced how a Conservative government, led by Prime Tom Lukiwski Minister AnMP Moose Jaw-Lake drew Scheer, Centre-Lanigan will work to protect our environment. “Time and time again, residents across Saskatchewan have told me there must

be a way to reduce emissions without imposing a carbon tax on hardworking families and small businesses who’re doing all they can just to get by,” said Lukiwski. “I’m proud to say the plan we’re putting forward today will do exactly that.” Conservatives have a proud legacy of protecting Canada’s natural environment while strengthening our economy at the same time. From Canada’s first Prime Minister, Sir John A. Macdonald, who laid the groundwork for Canada’s national parks system, to Prime Minister Mulroney who negotiated the Canada-United States acid rain treaty, to the previous Conservative government, led by Stephen Harper, who achieved a net decline of greenhouse gas emissions between 2005 and 2015, Conservatives have a strong record of delivering for the environment. The next phase in that legacy was announced on June 19th by Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer. A Real Plan to Protect Our Environment is a balanced

approach to reduce our emissions at home, conserve and protect our air, land, water and wildlife, and fight climate change abroad. It’s built on three key principles: Green technology, not taxes: Investing in green technology is the best way to lower our emissions without imposing new taxes on Canadians. A cleaner and greener natural environment: We will work with farmers, hunters and anglers, Indigenous peoples, provinces, and territories to protect our air, land, water and wildlife. Taking the climate change fight global: The current international approach to climate change forces countries to self-impose domestic emissions reductions targets. But emissions do not recognize borders. It’s a global problem that requires a global solution and Canada has a leadership role to play. “Conservatives have a strong legacy of

protecting the environment. But Liberals have always been all talk and no action,” said Lukiwski. “And not surprisingly, we’re getting more of the same under Justin Trudeau.” Justin Trudeau’s so-called environmental policy is not an emissions plan, it’s a revenue plan. In fact, Canadian families and small businesses will pay 92% of Trudeau’s Carbon Tax, while big polluters are only on the hook for 8%. It’s no wonder Canada will miss its emissions reductions targets under the Paris Agreement. “I’m proud of our Conservative plan because it will put Canada where we need to be,” said Lukiwski. “It will balance the need to fight climate change by lowering global emissions with our core promise of leaving more money in Canadians’ pockets and helping them get ahead.” For more information, please visit:

I will be the first to admit that I jumped on the Toronto Raptors’ bandwagon, but I wasn’t alone, I had millions of other Canadians along for the ride. I will also admit that I received an education in B-ball or as regular folks say, basketball from my six game, one series exby Dale “bushyâ€? posure to “bouncy ballâ€? Bush and am now an expert. I am sure the NBA Champions, Toronto Raptors, appreciated my support for their most important series ever and I am convinced it was my support and not Drake’s that was the final piece of the basketball championship puzzle. I was never a fan of basketball, a game I rarely played, and I am sure that for the most part that might be because I am‌well‌a Canadian. There, I said it! As bad as that may sound, it just might be the truth. Like most Canadian kids, I played hockey during the winter and hardly ever played basketball, mostly because the two sports have identical seasons. While there seemed to be a hockey rink at every community center, the floor space for basketball was restricted to gymnasiums during the winter. That is not to say there weren’t any leagues, but instead of bouncing a ball during the winter, I

was getting bounced playing hockey‌and loving it. I played b-ball (poorly) during gym class. You would have thought I might have inherited a few bouncy-ball skills from my mother who was a huge fan of the game. My Mom played basketball as a schoolgirl. Her story might have a familiar ring to it, for other opportunity-challenged female athletes. There was no such thing as girls and lady’s hockey, and ringette wasn’t ringing yet, so if you wanted to participate in a winter “women’s sportâ€? you either figure-skated, which was not exactly a team sport, or you played basketball, which is. Mom was vertically challenged with a height of 5 feet 3 inches. The ten-foot height of the basket must have seemed like it was miles away, but she had some moderate success in high school basketball and had a cherished team photo of “the Galsâ€? with a pretty impressive trophy. Mom went on to organize and coach in a girl’s basketball league in Calgary, which gave my sisters and many other female athletes the chance to play in a winter team sport. It was a lady’s basketball team that put Canada on the world basketball map long before the Raptors had their impressive NBA victory. More than a century ago, there was a girl’s high school basketball team from Edmonton, the Grads, that achieved the most successful winning percentage streak, a mere 95%, for a sports team‌ever! That impressive feat has yet to be beaten, but it did take the Grads almost

twenty-five years of whupping their opponents to have had their success streak ended with the start of WW2. With an estimated win/loss record of 522 wins and 20 losses, the record will probably stand for eons. Most pro teams today would give the world for a modicum of that success. Now that Canada (Toronto) has tasted the champagne of the National Basketball Association’s 2019 championship, there seems to be the likelihood of the sport gaining in popularity and why not? There is little equipment required and with modest athletic skills almost anyone can enjoy the game of bouncy-shooty. It seems that basketball appeals to Canadians from all walks of life and from all heritages. I think my Mom would just be tickled to witness this rise in popularity of “herâ€? game. I predict that all over Canada, vertically-challenged ball-bouncers will be dribbling all over the place‌I hope they clean up after themselves.

Mosquitoes, cankerworms and tent caterpillars Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

A lack of moisture in Moose Jaw up to just recently meant the parks department saw fewer mosquitos so far this year, as well as dealing with fewer cankerworms and tent caterpillars. Saskatchewan experienced one of its driest springs on record, according to the Ministry of Agriculture. As of May 31, the Moose Jaw area was said to be facing extreme drought conditions. More than 200 millimetres of rain is required in southern Saskatchewan to offset this and with the recent rains, things are looking a little more optimistic. The Parks department works with the Saskatchewan Health Authority’s population health branch to capture mosqui-

tos and determine if any carry the West Nile virus. None of the mosquitos captured so far have the virus, Regent said, since those types of carriers arrive later in the summer. “Mosquitos need standing water,� she said. “They can still breed in a couple inches of water.� Residents can prevent the growth of mosquitos by checking for standing water in their yards, Regent explained. This includes dumping out bird baths at least twice a week and ensuring rain barrels are covered. Large numbers of mosquitos have not been seen since 2015. Cankerworms and tent caterpillars

The parks department has seen a few isolated patches of cankerworms so far, but there have been no cases that threaten the trees, said Regent. The insects have been noticed in the northwest and on South Hill, where older trees are close together and their canopies touch. “This year is pretty normal,� she continued. “The last couple of years we’ve had pretty low cankerworm numbers, but we had high tent caterpillars. We’re not seeing really any tent caterpillars this year, so we are noticing the cankerworms quite a bit more.� One way to prevent the growth of these insects is to band trees. This keeps the insect populations low.

Parks staff will continue to monitor the cankerworm population numbers and will create a city-wide spray program if necessary. A spray program would depend on certain factors, explained Regent, that includes the severity of the previous winter, other pests, the history of the trees and whether the trees are stressed due to drought. If the department predicts that 30 per cent to 40 per cent of trees will be defoliated, they will spray. Tent caterpillars can damage trees as well. It can be a problem for the trees if the insects continually eat the leaves off it. Trees will die off if they can’t keep up with the defoliation.

Farm couple turns yard into unique agriculture-inspired campground Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Having hunted big game animals in Africa, the next great adventure for Dennis and Julie Hilling will see them operate a unique campground on their farm east of Moose Jaw. Bin There Campground is expected to be ready for occupants by the end of June, although it is now booking into 2020 and 2021. What makes this campground different is the fact many former farm buildings have been converted to accommodate tenters, RVers and those who like to stay in cabins. Six grain bins have been turned into insulated cabins with air conditioning, heat, and queen-sized beds on two levels. A former seed cleaning plant 90 square metres (1,000 square feet) in size has been turned into a large hall. The building has two attached wings; one wing contains a kitchen with fridges, stoves, deep freezer, sinks and cabinets, plus a washer, dryer, utility sink and bathrooms, while the second wing is an outdoor cooking area with two gas barbecues and six picnic tables. There are 13 RV sites, six grain bin cabins and three sites for tents, all of which can accommodate up to 75 people. Both Hillings say they are excited for this new adventure. “I’m happy we can offer something to (the) Moose Jaw area that was not here before,” said Mrs. Hilling, 67, “because a lot of people were saying, ‘What a great idea. We’ve been thinking of having a family reunion and didn’t have any idea of where we could get a place that would work.’” It’s roughing it in nature even though it isn’t real rough, Mrs. Hilling noted. Since this is Saskatchewan, the campground is also agriculturally minded due to the converted grain bins. “I’m overwhelmed,” Mr. Hilling said about the media at-

Complete strangers have also driven in from hundreds of kilometres away, looked around, and asked when they can use the campground. “I want to see (the campground succeed) … ,” he said. “It’s another adventure, sort of thing.” The Hilling family has owned the farm since 1960, explained Mr. Hilling, who was 12 years old when his family moved there. He later bought the farm in 1978, and over the years, he and his wife added to the property. In 2015 they both retired and sold off most of their machinery; they kept their main farmyard while they rented out their land. However, they couldn’t sell the six grain bins since those were cemented into place, said Mrs. Hilling. No one was willing to chip them out, so they stayed there in the yard. Mrs. Hilling was content in retirement since she liked to garden and manage the books. However, she teased her husband, who was quickly becoming hooked on watching Judge Judy. “This certainly kept us busy,” he remarked. Neither is sure who suggested opening a campground, but the Hillings agree the idea was tossed around during informal conversations in 2016. That idea then took off and they began planning how the campground would

Dennis and Julie Hilling have converted some of their farm yard into a unique campground. Photo by Jason G. Antonio look and began buying materials. It was a challenge to convert the grain bins into cabins. The Hillings found pictures online of converted bins, but were unable to locate building plans. It turned into a bit of trial and error. “We ended up being two-and-a-half times over budget,” said Mrs. Hilling. She pointed out group camping can be a problem, since large groups usually can’t stay together at provincial parks. On their farm, however, groups can remain together and share the same buildings without worrying if strangers will walk through. “We stumbled into a niche,” she added. “There was a need.” Mrs. Hilling is looking after all the bookings and the calls from interested campers and from the media. Mr. Hilling is managing the maintenance of the property.

Former Moose Jaw resident publishes first children’s book Larissa Kurz

Jeannette Briggs, nee Durie, has taken a bold step and self-published a children’s book, titled Brutus Plays on Thin Ice. Brutus, the main character, is based on a very real dog who has only three legs and belongs to her parents’ neighbor. The story follows Brutus and his best friend Harley, as they spend an afternoon playing on a frozen lake — which teaches them an important lesson about winter safety. It isn’t a topic that came out of nowhere; Briggs and her family live in a lake community near Calgary, which has witnessed some tragic deaths of children out on the thin ice. Briggs wanted to be sure her children were aware of the danger. So she created a story about Brutus, because her daughter was extremely curious about the dog after she met him. It became a nightly ritual, and Briggs began crafting more Brutus stories that taught her kids lessons that she wanted them to take to heart. She has now solidified five Brutus stories that she would like to make into

books, and Brutus Plays on Thin Ice is the first to be published. The potential plan, she said, is to partner with a publisher and put out the next four books as well. “My hope is just to bring such awareness to kids in a kind of fun and quirky story, so that they actually learn a valuable life lesson,” said Briggs. Originally, she wrote down the stories and asked her cousin, Breanne Davidson, to illustrate them so she could put together a keepsake just for her kids; but after hearing interest from others, Briggs decided to step out of her comfort zone and publish the story more formally. A large part of her decision was to share these safety lessons with more kids, because it’s important. A larger part was to set an example for her own daughter, who she’s always telling to be more courageous and bold. “The thing that rang true for me was that I’m telling her all these things and I’m not really walking the walk,” said Briggs. “That really stimulated me to want to put it out there, be vulnerable,

and share a creative work, which is a scary feeling.” The book has picked up some traction amongst her friends and family, and Briggs hopes to see more and more people give Brutus Plays on Thin Ice a chance. Currently, the book is available online through Amazon, Indigo, and Barnes and Noble. Briggs is working on getting her book into physical locations as

well, and is hoping to have it available in Moose Jaw in the future. “I’m just really happy and grateful that it’s gotten to fruition,” said Briggs. “If people do check it out, I would love to hear what they think of it.”

Who is really to blame for the Canadian pipeline building mess? Finally, the federal Liberal cabinet made the decision to proceed with construction of the Trans-Mountain Pipeline, twinned with an existing line from Alberta through B.C. to the West Coast. Nobody is happy about the decision. Environmentalists opposed to the line and oil production are ticked off. The oil companies are ticked off because they believe environmentalists’ court action will hold up construction for years. Politicians on all sides are pointing fingers at each other. Meanwhile thousands of jobs have been lost in the oil patch and related industry simply because we can only export oil to the United States. Governments have lost billions in royalty revenue. Before oil companies and supporters throw too may rocks at the current government for not getting things built, they should look at their own history of mistakes.

When the first Canadian pipelines were built in the 1950s and 1960s, commercial progress, not the environment, was the main driver. Even so, regulators feared issues and demanded strict monitoring of the underground transport. Over decades of operation without incidents and with better technology, regulators relented, allowed less monitoring and lower costs for the pipeline companies. As the 21st Century arrived, aging, less monitored pipelines started bursting; major rivers, the Yellowstone and the Kalamazoo, were impacted as were residential neighbourhoods. Environmentalists and anti-oil interests who previously had no reason to doubt the safety of pipelines suddenly had ammunition to convince sympathetic courts, politicians and an uninformed fearful public that pipelines aren’t safe. Meanwhile oil companies, following the example of Noah, invested billions of their shareholders’ money in oil developments on the mere hope Canada could build a pipeline by the time the oil flowed in five years or so. When it appeared, their odds were long on their multi-billion dollar bets, the secretive federal Harper Conservative government changed the building pro-

cess, fast tracking it and shutting some anti-pipeline advocates out of the process. Whatever little trust environmentalists and the public had in the pipeline-building approval process was lost by this bullying procedure. Trudeau was elected largely by supporters of science that tells us climate change is a real and immediate danger. Yet his government approved the pipeline only to have the courts insist on more consultation. Trudeau also approved a bill that, according to the oil industry, makes any new pipeline project nearly impossible. Likely he went overboard to compensate for Harper’s perceived gutting of the rules. While he deserves criticism for his handling of the pipeline file, Trudeau is not alone in taking blame. Blame needs to be shared among greedy oil captains, lax regulators and the Harper government. Ironically, some oil industry players and politicians and investors imply Trudeau should damn the torpedoes and just build it regardless of new court challenges, yet these people advocate and pursue provincial legal action against the Trudeau carbon tax What a double standard!

SGI introduces robot as ambassador for seatbelt safety Larissa Kurz SGI has announced the newest member of their Safety Squad: Bucklebot, a remote-controlled robot will teach kids about seatbelt safety. Bucklebot stands just under a metre tall and is operated by a human assistant, who will be wearing a headset to help the informative robot answer any questions the kids may have about seatbelt or general traffic safety. Seatbelt safety continues to be an area that SGI is concerned about, as last year’s Traffic Safety Spotlight recorded over 4,700 seatbelt or car seat infractions. Wearing a seatbelt, says SGI, could reduce your risk of injury in a collision by 50 per cent — and since on average, seatbelt use is a factor in around 19 deaths and 158 injuries per year, the issue continues to be pertinent. SGI is introducing Bucklebot to teach kids about seatbelt safety and help them develop good seatbelt habits at a young age, to keep them safe throughout their lifetime. Bucklebot will be traveling around the province, appearing at car seat clinics, school and community events, and safety days. To request a visit from Bucklebot and the Safety Squad at your event, SGI asks you contact Traffic Safety Community Outreach online.

There is a right and a wrong way to stretch by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor

I suspect one of the biggest worries for a newbie at the gym, or a reason for why some never even go to a gym, is the fear that you may look like you don’t know what you are doing. Seasoned exercisers make the gym look like it’s their second home. Looking like you know what you’re doing begins even before you lift your first weight. The most important part of your gym experience happened between the time you put on your lululemon’s and your first set at the squat rack. How you warm up and stretch prior to your workout will affect the quality of your workout and will really show others that you know a thing or two about exercising.

Hopefully when you are at the gym, you are not seen doing any of these: Stretching your pectoral muscles (chest) against a wall before performing a bench press, Stretching your quad muscle (front of your thigh) by bringing your heel to your butt before you do a squat, or Pulling your arm across your chest to stretch your deltoid muscle before doing a shoulder set. These types of activities are called “static stretches” and were once considered to be the gold standard of a pre-weight training ritual. Research has been telling us for a number of years now that this is the wrong way to prepare for weight training exercises. Static stretching has been defined as holding a muscle in a lengthened position that creates an uncomfortable “stretching sensation”, for a prescribed period of time (often 10 to 15 seconds). For the last 15 years, research has been recommending against this type of pre-workout warmup. Stretching in this fashion has been shown to decrease blood flow and limit oxygen availability to the muscle. This can weaken the muscle and make it more suscepti-

ble to injury when performing the exercise immediately after the stretch. There is some research identifying that muscle damage can occur from the stretch itself. If you are looking to achieve “PB’s” (personal bests), static stretching will not get you there. This type of stretching is not recommended prior to running either as it negatively effects the speed of muscle contractions. What is the correct way to stretch before a workout? Well, think about what is the opposite of “static”? it is “dynamic”. Dynamic stretching is a thing and it is what seasoned gym people do prior to hitting the weights. Instead of staying still during a stretch, dynamic stretching means you stay mobile while pushing the limits of your range of motion. The goals of warming up is to increase blood flow to the muscle group you are about to use, improve nerve input to muscle fibres and create a healthy biochemical environment for muscle contraction. Dynamic stretching allows for all this to happen. For all of those looking to make a good first impression at the gym, learning how to warm up would be a good start.

Working Together to Improve Lives

MLAs Column

Warren Michelson

Moose Jaw North Warren Michelson, MLA

Several community-based organizations in Moose Jaw held their Annual General Meeting in June and reported details on the caring work they do at their respective organizations. I was pleased to attend many of these meetings including the Military Family Resource Centre, Moose Jaw Family Services, Hunger Moose Jaw and the South-Central Early Childhood Intervention Program. Each organization reported on the tremendous work being done by dedicated staff to help fill the needs of our community and improve the lives of individuals and families. These are among many organizations that quietly go about providing support in a variety of ways; including housing, learning and development, life enhancement, family and mental health supports. The boards of directors, managers, workers, support staff and volunteers of each organization dedicate their work to making life better for others. Their efforts and devotion to our community are greatly appreciated. Our government depends on partnerships with community-based organizations to provide services and

expertise needed in communities across our province. Contracts with these organizations are an integral part of the social supports available to the people of Saskatchewan. The 2019-20 Budget made a $1.23 billion investment in Social Services, an increase of $55.5 million, or 4.7 per cent, compared to last year. The budget provided an increase of more than $27.7 million to support atrisk children and families. Community-based organizations and those who deliver services to children and families, and provide support for people with intellectual disabilities will receive an additional $5.9 million in 2019-20. The budget also provides a $6.6 million increase in funding for adults with intellectual disabilities. Since 2007-08, government funding for income assistance programs has increased by $275 million, or 89 per cent. We continue to look for better ways moving forward to improve delivery of social support services. Earlier in June, the Government of Saskatchewan appointed members to the new Income Assistance Advisory Group to help Social Services improve income assistance programs and services to best meet the needs of vulnerable Saskatchewan people. Members include representatives from community-based organizations and individuals who have experienced living with a disability. Most provincial income assistance programs had not been updated in our province for more than 50 years.

However, beginning July 15, access to income support will be simpler, transparent, client-friendly and have new features that will help transition clients to greater independence and a better quality of life. Saskatchewan Income Support (SIS) will replace the Saskatchewan Assistance Program (SAP) and the Transitional Employment Allowance. The Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability (SAID) program, introduced in 2009, will remain in place and continue to run alongside the new program. The new Saskatchewan Income Support Program will allow increased monthly earned income exemptions for clients to keep more of the money they make as they move into the workforce. Applying for assistance will be easier and quicker with the new online application process. A simpler benefit will allow staff to spend more meaningful time with clients, helping them address their challenges, instead of filling out paperwork. The new program will be a valuable asset in assisting people to move toward meaningful employment with personal support available to them. It is very rewarding to see the positive results of the people of our province working together with organizations and the government to improve lives. Thank you to all community-based organizations for the great work you have done and continue to do, to support and strengthen individuals and families in Moose Jaw.

June was declared Brain Injury Awareness Month by the Saskatchewan Brain Injury Association, and although the month has come to a close, it’s a topic that the local SBIA chapter wants people to think about all the time. Glenda James, executive director of the Moose Jaw SBIA chapter, emphasized the theme of this year’s campaign: “Anytime.” “It really is an epidemic. It really can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime,” said James. Around 1.5 million Canadians live with a brain injury, according to Brain Injury Canada. Over half of all brain injuries occur due to accidents involving vehicles — cars, motorbikes, snowmobiles, ATVs, and such — and half of all brain injuries involve alcohol. Brain injury is the number one cause of death and disability in people under the age of 45 worldwide, according to the SBIA, and the annual instance of brain injuries is larger than the combined cases of Multiple Sclerosis, spinal cord injury, HIV/AIDS and breast cancer combined. James shared one more concerning statistic: all over the world, every second that passes sees two people acquire a brain injury. There is no cure for brain injury, only treatment to help improve a patient’s quality of life. This is why James, and the SBIA, finds awareness to be so important; prevention is the only way to reduce the number of brain injuries that occur. Each injury is different, but many share some symptoms — memory loss, balance problems, dizziness. Some people lose the ability to walk, talk, see, or to look after themselves. Often, in recovering from an accident, some people lose touch with family or friends and find themselves isolated. To support their many programs, the SBIA organizes their annual fundraiser, the Brain Boogie. The charity walk happens in 5 cities in Saskatchewan, and all of the proceeds stay in the province to support SBIA programming. This year, the Moose Jaw Brain Boogie will be on Aug. 25, and more details will be announced later. The bottom line that James emphasized is for people to be safe and smart about protecting their brains; she recommends wearing a helmet in any situation that calls for one and obeying every safety rule.

Chainsaw and grinder turn old tree into new artistic creation Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

An eagle, an owl and a bear usually aren’t the best of friends, but on this particular day, all three animals co-exist peacefully while hanging out in a tree. They have been carved into an ash tree located behind a house on High Street East. Besides the animals, the face of an ash tree god and a fairy house have also been carved into the trunk. The stump of the tree is designed to tell a story, wood carver Doug Lingelbach explained on June 18. “Ashes to ashes with a brand-new stump, where all nature co-exists,” he said. “The

bear is trying to get away from the eagle. The bear was curious about the baby owls and the mother owl was awoken to see what is really going on. It’s a battle but they co-exist. “The moral of the story is ‘it’s just one moment in time.’” Lingelbach carved the tree — taking him 55 hours — because the owner of the property wanted the 120-year-old ash tree repurposed instead of being cut down. Furthermore, she wanted the tree preserved since the adjacent house is a heritage building that dates to the early 1900s. The carver noted black ash is similar to oak: it has longevity and can draw nearly 227 litres of water per day. Lingelbach is perhaps better known as one of two carvers who carved burrowing owls and a train into trees near the library to help celebrate Canada 150. He has appeared on the TV show “Carver Kings,” and is a professional power carver, has 29 years of experience, and is an arbourist by trade. The Regina-born, Saskatoon-based carver is also the reigning Saskatchewan chainsaw-carving champion. He’ll be competing at Manitou Lake on the August long weekend against other competitors, including “heavy hitters” from the United States. Lingelbach is in the top 10 in Canada among wood carvers, while he is in the top 50 in the world. He enjoys repurposing existing trees and A spin wheel is used to sand the wings putting smiles on people’s faces with his of an eagle to give it more contrast and carvings.

Before he begins carving, Lingelbach looks at images to get a sense of realism. However, once he starts working, his images take on a more stylized tone. The

realism is there, he remarked, but it’s nowhere near where it should be. After finishing the tree on High Street, Lingelbach’s next project will be in northern Saskatchewan, where he is to carve a seven-foot-long bear inside a giant tree trunk. “I do it,” he added, “because I love it.”

EXPRESS Saskatchewan Stock Growers want the government of Saskatchewan to pick up the funding slack left when Alberta stops funding the Saskatchewan vet college. A resolution approved at the annual Saskatchewan Stock Growers’ Association convention in Moose Jaw calls on the province to fully fund the 20 student seats lost by Alberta pulling out. The Stock Growers noted there is still a shortage of small and large animal vets in

rural Saskatchewan and loss of 20 grads a year will only make the shortage worse. The Government of Alberta announced in 2017 that it was pulling out of the 54-yearold partnership with Saskatchewan to fund the Saskatchewan Veterinary Medical College. Alberta ends its $8 million a year contribution at the end of the 2019-20 academic year. The funding switch will allow the University of Calgary vet program to increase students by 30 seats from the current 130. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Local scuba club event diving for golf balls

Larissa Kurz The annual Drive & Dive out at Lovering Lake took place on June 23, luckily falling into the best weather of the weekend with good visibility out in the lake. The even puts a twist on the usual expectations from golfers: rather than avoiding driving the golf ball into the water, the Drive & Dive encourages you to sink that ball right into the lake. Later, once everyone has teed off all the balls they want, divers are tasked with submerging and collecting the golf balls — and whoever brings up the most takes a prize. This year, there were only three divers, and it was Dwight Watson who gathered the most golf ball treasure from the bottom of the lake; honorable mentions go to Greg Bathgate and Kelly Charpentier, who dove as well. There were prizes for all the participants, drivers and divers alike. A BBQ lunch followed the conclusion of the event. Drive & Dive is hosted by the Moose Jaw Barracudas Club and serves as a fun way to gather together and spend an afternoon by the lake.

One of the things Donna Bowyer enjoyed while working in the mental health field in Moose Jaw was interacting with clients and watching them grow after witnessing their early struggles. “I’m so proud of them and so happy when I see them, because instead of when they first start struggling with an illness they don’t see the hope of recovery,” Bowyer said, “once they’re in recovery, they can’t imagine every going back to what it was like before.” Seeing those accomplishments is another reason why Bowyer worked so long in the field. However, after 28-and-a-half years as Moose Jaw’s branch director for the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), she decided it was time to step down, so on June 20, she did. Bowyer thought now was the best time to retire and hand over the reins to another; in this case, to Nema Atsu. Spending more time with her grandchildren, as well as pursuing several projects are on her to-do list. Bowyer wants to work on more crafts, while she also wants to travel more, particularly to Africa. Her husband is from Ghana, while they also have a house there. As the branch director in Moose Jaw, she looked after the peer-support program, designed for people who have mental illness and are in recovery or are just beginning their recovery. “When you have mental illness, it’s nice to talk with somebody who really

More recognition is also required that recovery happens in the community, she added. People go to hospitals when they’re in crisis, but followup support is found in the community. Friends and family can provide aid in the recovery process. “Medication is important, but the other part is just as important,” Bowyer said. However, Bowyer won’t fully step away from the CMHA. She will continue to serve as the director of training and education for the CMHA’s Saskatchewan Division, on a part-time basis. She has held this role for 15 years. She is also excited about a program being developed called recovery college or wellness centres. Based on models operating throughout Canada, these programs will teach people to learn coping skills for recovery and to stay healthy. Bowyer had high praise for Atsu taking over as branch director. Atsu volunteered with the branch in high school. She recently returned from Calgary after working for several years in the mental health field. Bowyer is looking forward to the new ideas and energy Atsu will bring. “I’m excited in the direction the branch is going,” Bowyer added.

She noticed that people who in- ers. teracted with those with mental health challenges accepted them more and acknowledged them as people. “When I started, people with mental illness were almost cocooned,” she Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express continued. They were isolated and protected from being hurt again. Now, Nema Atsu is the new branch director for the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) — Moose Jaw chapter and is looking forward to serving the community in new ways. Atsu is replacing Donna Bowyer, who served in the position for 28-and-a-half years. Bowyer stepped down to focus on family and other projects. She will continue to serve as the director of training and education for the CMHA’s Saskatchewan Division. Atsu grew up in Moose Jaw and volunteered with the CMHA in high school. Atsu attended university in Calgary and convocated with a degree in psychology and a diploma in social work. She has worked in the mental health field throughout Western Canada during the last few years. She also supervised a peer-support program, so the branch director position seemed liked a good fit. Located at 350 Langdon Crescent, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 6W9 She went into this field since she knew friends and family who were affected by T: 306-693-6176 I F:306-693-1515 mental illness and didn’t know how to help them. She decided to pursue education in university that would teach her how to help people recover. The Law firm of Grayson & Company is pleased to Welcome Darcy Dumont and The CMHA is close to her heart because of how inspiring the members are and Jeff Galbraith to our firm and to Moose Jaw and surrounding area. because she grew up around them and volunteered with them, Atsu explained. She loves the mental health field and enjoys watching people “blossom into who they’re meant to be.” Having moved back to Moose Jaw, Atsu — going into her third week on the job — acknowledged the work Bowyer did during her three decades as branch director. “They are very big shoes to fill,” Atsu laughed. “But she has been a very good mentor, so I’m hoping I can take what she’s taught me and what I’ve learned working in other provinces to live up to what she’s done.” Atsu wants to find new ways to make the branch’s peer-support program grow and to serve more people in the community. She would also like to promote the CMHA’s name more and all the services it offers. Jeff's Practice includes the areas of Darcy's practice includes the Reducing stigma and dispelling misconceptions around mental illness is another Real Estate, Estate Law, Incorporaareas of civil litigation, municiobjective Atsu wants to pursue.

One in five people will be affected by a mental illness this year, said Bowyer. Meanwhile, one in two people will be affected by a mental illness in their lifetime. However, people are afraid to reach out for help. Grayson & Company was founded in 1883 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan by William Grayson and has been providing legal services continually since that “When we think about stigma, we think about two parts,” Bowyer said. “There’s the date. Today, Grayson & Company has two law offices located in Moose Jaw and prejudice, which is those mistaken beliefs. And then there are the actions.” Central Butte.

Use of word genocide in national report found disturbing by some Canadians One word in the final report by the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women raised eyebrows and hackles among some people. Use of the word genocide to describe the white dominated society’s treatment of Indigenous peoples was viewed by some as an insult, an affront, to white people. Particularly upset are some folks who are so proud of their ancestors for enduring hardships while converting the wilderness into productive farms, communities by Ron Walter and provinces. One of them asked over coffee where the Indians would be if the white man had never come to the Americas. The implication was that whites brought “civilization” to the Indian peoples. If the white man had stayed in Europe, the Indigenous peoples in the Americas would be just fine. They had their own culture, their own religion, their own economy based on hunting the game on the land, and health care from native plants. In this region they had built their own meat packing operation trading bison meat to other tribes for stone tools and materials. Yes, the white man brought the technology used by Indigenous peoples today and the way to convert what whites thought was useless land into agricultural land and showed how to exploit resources. The whites also brought smallpox disease that wiped out whole tribes, brought whiskey to which most Indigenous peoples have low tolerance, creating endless social concerns. The white man encouraged, virtually forced the Indians onto reserves on the

worst farmland and instructed them to learn agriculture. When some bands became too good at farming the Indian agents refused to let them sell their products outside the reserve. When the white leaders signed treaties with the Indians, they promised to look after them forever in the sincere belief that their superior Christian religion and values would be quickly adopted by the pagan Indians. That did not happen, leaving governments with a huge financial burden and laws that treat Indigenous people like children. Along the way the white man took some lands from bands without compensation, forced children away from their families into residential schools where they were punished for speaking their language and often abused. They did learn to read and write but that in no way justifies taking them away from their families and intentionally trying to destroy their culture. The Sixties Scoop was another blow to Indigenous people’s culture with children removed to so-called better homes. Under white man’s law, police were allowed to look the other way when an Indian went missing or immediately suspected them of wrong doing. Judges often had harsher sentences for Indians than whites doing the same offence. It was as if Indians didn’t matter. To judge another person or group of persons one ought to try and put yourself in their shoes. From that perspective it is easy to understand why the word genocide was used to describe treatment of Indigenous people. Ron Walter can be reached at

Grass is greener in the southwestern Saskatchewan plains By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

We were on the road again feeling like gypsies. It was a long weekend with a destination of Lloydminster, supposedly to check out to the new Gold Horse Casino, really an excuse to travel. Up Highway 42 past Elbow and through Outlook we drove, noting the progress of seeding operations. Lunch was at Rosetown; our mouths watering at the thought of the food and home-made pie at that little cafe next to the Esso. Sadly, the cafe is no longer open. We had to settle for A&W, but none of that tasteless beyond meat stuff. To the north of Rosetown, the Bear Hills seemed higher in the distance. Our path led west to Kindersley and north through Kerrobert. The car radio was on CJWW, listening to country classics. Hits from 1973 were featured, bringing back memories of youth-

The church

ful days. Later when they played Galveston sung by Glenn Campbell, my partner recalled the baton judge from Galveston at the Kinsmen Band Festival that year and how she was teased that Campbell wrote the song for her. We drove by a neat small heritage village at Kerrobert: mental note to visit some day. Lots of oil wells in the country up to Lloydminster. Some 40-acre fields have five or six wells. The inconvenience of farming around them is less hassle at $5,000 a pop per well annual surface rights rental. Most of the oil is heavy oil supplying upgraders at Lloydminster, Regina and the asphalt refinery in Moose Jaw. We came across a large lake called Muddy Lake, likely because of the dark brown colour. Overlooking the lake is a cool eyebrow ring of hills and exposed bluffs. Lloydminster has sure grown. Our hotel is on the south end of town. My partner chose it for the multiple stay discount, asking if the seniors’ or motor club discount was also available. “Nice try,” said the desk clerk. “You never know until you ask,” countered my partner of almost 50 years. The Gold Horse Casino is spacious. Yours Truly takes his $20 and heads for the unoccupied one of four penny slots. Two plays and an $80 win comes up. Yours Truly notices the unoccupied of four penny slots is actually a $1 machine. I take my money and run to a nickel machine. By the time we go for delicious pickerel and lake trout supper at the grille we won enough to more than pay for our two-day

White bear trip. Next morning, we went south on a highway hugging the Saskatchewan border viewing the picturesque hills. A neat just restored white church drew our attention. In Kerrobert, I stop for a bathroom break, spying what appeared to be the orange vanilla Coke my partner wants to try. I should have read labels closer. It was dreadful vanilla Zero Coke. The Journey slows when we see a rotting old wooden silo next to an old barn with a pulley out front for the sling to move loose hay into the loft. We take a different route through Plato, Elrose and White Bear. My partner asks why. “You’ve wanted to see a bear all trip, now you will,” I reply. Down through Saskatchewan Landing to Swift Current we drive, noticing how much greener the grass is in the south.

That late snow sure helped the grass get greener. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@


REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Handshake could be measurement of health

The large gentleman, one of the wrestlers hired to entertain a local crowd, held out his hand and smiled. Gingerly I offered my own much smaller hand and inwardly cringed, thinking my bones would be crushed in my attempt to be mannerly Joyce Walter and return his friendly gesFor Moose Jaw Express ture. What a shock to receive one of those “dead fish” handshakes from him, dead fish meaning limp-wristed and lacking even a tiny bit of pressure. But later that evening he had no trouble appearing to smack his opponent around the ring. Nothing dead fish about the contact of those hands. Maybe I was lucky not to be gripped in his large paw. On the other hand, there was the elderly gentleman who ventured into the office one day looking for a story about his Bible crusade. After a satisfactory interview, he held out his hand in farewell and left me gasping furtively and thinking “oh my gosh, that hurt.” There

was nothing limp about his shake and I remembered and felt it for quite awhile afterwards. I’ve since learned that limp handshakes might mean the person is shy, introverted or simply suffers from anxiety when his hand must touch the hand of a stranger. For after all, who knows what germs are on that hand or where it has been most recently. Or to give that person the benefit of the doubt, perhaps he had arthritis and a firm handshake would have had painful consequences for him. I know all too well how painful it is for my arthritic hand to be grasped too firmly — I would never allow Donald Trump to grip onto my hand the way he’s been known to shake the hands of others. While the dead fish shake is unpleasant, those aggressive shakes might happen because the person wants to exert authority over the other, that being boss means gripping while the other person is not grinning so much as grimacing. But there is another matter regarding handshakes. It seems, according to preliminary research, that folks with firm handshakes are expected to live longer, having muscle mass to help fight off diseases such as

various types of cancer, cardiovascular disease and obstructive pulmonary disease, among some of them. There’s considerable research going on into handshakes as they relate to one’s health. That research has come up with the theory that someone with a less-firm handshake will be susceptible to the aforementioned illnesses. There’s more testing of those theories to take place by scientists in Scotland before there’s any definitive announcement. So, in the meantime, I will self-medicate by giving as firm a handshake as I can manage without crying out in arthritic pain. I will also feel some measure of sympathy for individuals who barely touch a hand to mine, let alone show any firmness. To recap: dead fish belong in the frying pan, not attached to one’s wrist. Hopefully my wrestling friend will modify his behaviour so as to live a longer, healthier life. Joyce Walter can be reached at

25th anniversary Saturday for Eyebrow Fair For Moose Jaw Express

All roads will lead to Eyebrow on Saturday, July 6 in celebration of the silver anniversary of the Eyebrow Fair. Twenty-five years ago, the plan was hatched to hold a community fair at the Eyebrow Sports Grounds. And now 25 years later, the fair is in celebration mode with organizers looking forward to another successful daylong program. Activities will begin with a pancake breakfast from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., sponsored by the Eyebrow and District Fire Protection Society. Eyebrow is one of the few fairs that has maintained a long-time, fair-related competition — a household arts division that showcases the best baking, sewing, photography, woodworking and other crafts. Household arts entries are to be delivered to the arena by 8:30 a.m. and judging will begin at 9 a.m. The dis-

play, including a penny parade, will open to the public at 1 p.m. Baked items are retained and entered in a silent auction where bidding is sometimes fierce for the pies and cookies. Horse exhibitors will take to the ring at 9 a.m. with classes continuing throughout the day and numerous high point awards offered in various age groups. Bouncy castles for the children will be set up at 10 a.m. The slow pitch tournament also begins at 10 a.m. and continues during the day. The concession stand will open at 10:30 a.m. and the seniors’ pie booth opens at 11 a.m. with homemade pies served while supplies last. Sour cream raisin is always one of the popular flavours. Children’s chuckwagon races begin at noon. The refreshment gardens open at 12:30 p.m. The household arts dis-

plays, penny parade and silent auction tables will close at 4 p.m. Children will be able to participate in a candy-in-thestraw activity from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Fair-goers are invited to show off their musical talents at a karaoke session from 3 to 7 p.m. on the main stage with DJ Rod Willier. A full-course supper will be served at 5 p.m. with tickets available for purchase on-site. The band, Magnum, will begin music at 8 p.m. and a fireworks display is scheduled at dark to conclude this year’s fair. Copies of the Eyebrow prize and events program are available by calling 306-631-8317 or 306-690-2852.

Tons of summer activities at Buffalo Pound Larissa Kurz

Although the pool at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park will be closed this summer, there will still be lots of different things to do in the park — all of which are free for anyone and everyone. The busy summer kicked-off with some Canada Day festivities at Maple Vale Beach. Every Friday, the Survival Series program will run a session on a new topic related to wilderness survival. Beginning with the basics on July 5 and returning each week with fire-starting techniques and advice on wild animal encounters, among other topics. Beginning on July 3, Crafty Campers will feature a nature-themed craft every Wednesday through the summer. On Thursdays, Discovery Table will teach nature-themed knowledge, like how to identify animal scat and tracks, or what to do if you’re lost in the woods.

On Tuesdays, the weekly Movie Nights will return beginning July 2. A new shelter was built by Lakeside Foods, which will be perfect for drive-in style movies and in case of rainy weather. Buffalo Pound is once again hosting the Virtual Bioblitz on July 8, where people can download the iNaturalist app and log all the different kinds of bugs, animals, and plants they see around the park. The app will keep track of which provincial park has the most variety of nature. Learn to Canoe classes will be returning to Maple Vale Beach, on July 6 and 27, or Aug. 3 and 17. Participants will learn canoeing basics and safety and prepare them to get out on the lake themselves. Jason Matity will once again be teaching Learn to Fish on July 14, on the new fishing platform at Maple Vale Beach. Equipment will be provided, and Tim Yates will also be there to demonstrate net fishing

techniques. Terrence Littletent will be stopping in on July 13 and Aug. 24, to perform a hop-dancing demonstration as part of his park-wide tour. On July 20, lovers of hiking and ghost stories are in luck; the Haunted Hike will tell some spooky tales as you walk down to the Nicholle Homestead, with a milder tour at 8pm and a scarier tour at 10pm. The Campfire Cooking event, which was a hit last year, will be returning on July 21. Campfire Idol will showcase local talent with a warm campfire setting on July 26. The sign-up sheet for the show will be available soon at Lakeside Foods. On Aug. 5, a traditional Homestead Picnic on the Nicholle Homestead will take over the Nicholle Flats Nature Area. There will be horse-drawn wagon rides around the property, good food, and historic activi-

ties to honor the great parties the Nicholle family used to throw on their property. There is no shortage of activities in Buffalo Pound this summer, and the park hopes to see people out and enjoying what they have planned. Buffalo Pound is also launching their Collect and Win Series for the summer: those who stop in at any of the activities this summer will get a stamp card, and the more stamps you collect on your card by attending events in the park, the more prizes you can win. There are no fees for any of the events, and no registration required — although some events require parents to stay with children age 12 and under. A full list of programming, as well as times and details about the activities, can be found on the Buffalo Pound page of Tourism Saskatchewan’s website.

Safety tips for being in the water this summer Larissa Kurz

It’s nearly July long weekend and if the weather permits, many will be heading out to the lake to enjoy their extra days off with boating, fishing, and general lake-bound fun. To keep everyone as safe as possible on the water, the Canadian Red Cross has a few tips to make sure everyone is being smart about their weekend fun. Water safety is all about making the smart choice, according to the Red Cross. Boating sober, taking a properly-fitted lifejacket with you, and paying attention to young children in and around the water can make a huge difference. According to recent statistics, over half of Canada’s water-related fatalities happen during the summer months. The most at-risk demographics are males aged 15 and up, and children under the age of 5. About 80% of all deaths by drowning were male, and 64% of those male deaths involved alcohol. About 35% of drowning victims were alone at the time of the inci-

dent, and lack of adult supervision is a factor in 75% of water-related deaths of children under the age of 10. These statistics are relevant to all types of water situations, whether out on the lake or at home in a backyard pool. The Red Cross strongly encourages parents to provide constant supervision of children where water is involved and to avoid alcohol when taking on a role of responsibility. Every year, around 525 Canadians die from unintentional water-related accidents, and a few easy steps could prevent it from happening. Things as simple as wearing a life jacket, rotating who’s watching the kids swim, and taking a few swimming lessons can make a huge difference. Some base knowledge about water safety would definitely be an asset as well. It’s very important to know that in a situation where someone is potentially drowning, the best course of action is to try and throw them something buoyant and call 911 — avoid getting in the water yourself at all costs.

People in distress can be very strong; it’s safer to keep some distance between them and yourself and throw them a life-saving device that you can reel them in to safety. The Red Cross also reminds lake-goers that even in the summertime, the majority of Canadian lakes are still considered cold-water bodies — so if you’re planning on spending a lot of time in the water, make sure to take a break and warm up regularly to avoid negative effects. Sun safety is always necessary as well; it can be easy to succumb to dehydration or sunstroke when out in the heat for too long. Apply sunscreen, drink lots of water, and cover up if you feel overheated. The most important advice is to be smart, and have fun, and keep everyone safe on the water this summer — because a Saskatchewan summer on the lake can be a great way to spend time in the outdoors.

Annual PEO supper returns to support women’s education Larissa Kurz

The Moose Jaw Chapter of the Philanthropic Educational Organization (PEO) is once again hosting their fall Roast Beef Fundraiser on Oct. 17, and tickets are already available to purchase. PEO member Crystal Froese is looking forward to the event, as each year the banquet features a great meal and an impeccable silent auction of items donated by local businesses. “It’s one of those kinds of events that have just gone on for years because of the close connections with the people,” said Froese. The supper is where the Moose Jaw PEO raises the majority of funds for their initiatives, which provide grants and scholarships to women pursuing any post-secondary education. Froese admits that she feels not many people know about the PEO here in Moose Jaw, despite the fact that the chapter has been active for over 70 years. Their volunteers do most of their work out of the spotlight, collaborating with schools and individuals to put together scholarship applications and organizing fundraisers each year. But she would love for more people in the community to understand what Moose Jaw’s PEO is doing to help

The silent auction is always a hit, and organizers are always welcoming businesses to donate items to support the event. (supplied) women of all ages pursue their educational aspirations. “We have been very, very successful in having, I would say probably 99% of our applications accepted, out of the ones that we actually put forward,” said Froese.

PEO offers several different scholarships for both new high school graduates, women pursuing continuing education, and those pursuing additional education. Some of the funding options offer up to $15,000 in scholarship money. “That’s what the financial support that we provide goes towards, is helping those women move forward and into whatever career that they’re looking for, through education,” said Froese. The supper fundraiser is an annual event, hosted every year at the Heritage Inn, and always sells out reliably. Tickets are $35 and attendees can reserve a table for the evening, and enjoy the event knowing that all proceeds will stay in Moose Jaw to help local women. “If there’s people out there who really feel strongly about supporting an initiative like this, they should certainly come and get tickets and have fun with us,” said Froese. Tickets can be purchased from any PEO member of the local chapter, or by contacting Crystal Froese at (306) 631-2995. There is also a Facebook event set up, which people can use to request tickets as well.

Provincial Court

Accused tobacco smugglers could have cases resolved in July Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Five people accused of smuggling $115,000 worth of tobacco and loose cigarettes had their court cases adjourned for a possible resolution. Eugene Rivard, 74, Elizabeth Rivard, 69, Paula Rivard, 48, Douglas Ahenakew, 54, and Samuel Peter Crook, 58, are all accused of transporting 618,000 illegal cigarettes and about 31 kilograms (68 pounds) of loose tobacco, after officers with the Moose Jaw Police Service conducted a

traffic stop and executed a search warrant on March 19. None of the five were present in court; their defence lawyer appeared on their behalf by phone. Judge Brian Henderickson agreed to hold all bench warrants originally issued for the five individuals. He also agreed to adjourn their cases to Monday, July 22 for either a resolution or so further discussions could occur between the Crown and defence.

Henderickson agreed to lift a no-contact clause between Paula, and Eugene and Elizabeth. In a previous news release, the Moose Jaw Police Service pointed out it is illegal to possess or use unstamped tobacco. The illegal tobacco trade is unregulated and supports organized

crime. This tobacco also gives people – especially young people – easier access to cigarettes. It also takes away millions of tax dollars from public services such as education and health care. The next data Moose Jaw provincial court meets is Wednesday, July 3.

Trek to buy cigarettes leads to impaired motorist hitting bicyclist Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

A trek to buy cigarettes did not go as planned for Dustin Fredrick Usher, as a bicyclist ended up on the hood of his vehicle and police were called to investigate. When police arrived at the scene, they smelled alcohol coming from Usher; two breath tests revealed his blood alcohol content (BAC) level was .10, or just above the legal limit of .08.

Appearing in Moose Jaw provincial court recently, Usher pleaded guilty to having a BAC level over the legal limit within two hours of ceasing to operate a conveyance. He received a one-year driving ban, had his licence revoked, and received a fine of $1,200 with four months to pay. The Crown stayed a charge of operating a vehicle while impaired.

City Hall Council Notes

Moose Jaw poorly funded by provincial road program, says Swanson Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The provincial Urban Highway Connector Program (UHCP) has poorly served Moose Jaw over the years due to, among other things, underfunding of the program, says one city councillor. Moose Jaw was the last municipality to sign up for this program and it has not benefitted as it should, said Coun. Brian Swanson. The provincial government has funded the program poorly, while the municipality has taken on maintenance of more provincial roads within its boundaries. Last year Moose Jaw received $93,000 from the program. A resident called Swanson recently with concerns about Main Street North, particularly with the apparent lack of maintenance, he said during council’s June 24 regular while discussing the recent provincial mayors’ caucus meeting in Estevan. Swanson wondered if city administration tracks how much money it spends on municipal roads and provin-

cial roads that run through the community. “We’ve started to track it that way this year,” said city manager Jim Puffalt, although compared to what the municipality spends on sealing cracks, for example, the amount from the UCHP is small. When the UHCP agreements first came in, he explained, a rate was established for maintenance of roadways per kilometre, “which was a far cry from before when there was nothing. They at least (give) us something back (now) for maintenance.” “We have a substantial budget for pothole repair, maintenance and crack repairs (for Main Street),” Puffalt added. “If the area needs to be addressed, we can take a look and see what can be done.” Besides the UHCP, the use of speed enforcement cameras, strategies to combat gang violence, and acquiring taxes from cannabis sales were other issues Sas-

katchewan’s mayors discussed during their yearly meeting. Mayor Fraser Tolmie told city council that the mayors approved a recommendation to have the organization ask the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA) to create a policy for speed enforcement cameras. This would look at installation and prosecution, while also potentially considering broader revenue redistribution among municipalities. “I shared my point of view — and a lot of mayors understand — that this was a pilot project. If it worked in our community, it can work in other communities,” Tolmie said, adding he also told other mayors that the original pilot project communities of Moose Jaw, Regina and Saskatoon are now forced to give up funding from those cameras due to a decision by the provincial government. Moose Jaw’s position around money generated by those speed cameras is now

compromised, Swanson said, particularly since city council recently accepted the new redistribution formula that the provincial government developed. It was important to highlight the speed enforcement camera agreement that council agreed to sign with the province for another three years, Tolmie said. Council did not originally have a plan to deal with the intersection of Highway 1 and Ninth Avenue North, he continued. The four cameras installed throughout the community have served their purpose helping reduce accidents. While supporting that agreement means some revenue will be generated for municipal coffers, Tolmie was also disappointed that most of the funding will now leave the community. He added that council has three years to determine whether it wants to sign another contract with the province.

Three outdoor ice surfaces to be decommissioned by this winter Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

There will be three fewer outdoor ice surfaces for residents to use this winter, after a review by the parks and recreation department recommended that they be decommissioned. City council authorized the department in February to conduct an assessment of rinks and make recommendations on ones that could be maintained as ice surfaces, ones that could be converted for other uses such as basketball or pickleball, and rinks that could be removed. Based on the findings, the skating pad at Fourth Avenue and Oxford Street is being decommissioned, while the boarded rinks at Hillcrest and VLA (Veterans Landing Association) will be repurposed for pickleball or other activities. The parks and rec department presented its outdoor rink master plan to city council during the June 24 regular meeting. Council voted 6-1 to accept the report; Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Thirteen ice surfaces will be available for 2019-20, with a maintenance priority system implemented for each site. Priority 1 rinks include East End, Sunningdale, Moose Square, West End, Smith, Regal, and the Wakamow Oval. Priority 2 rinks include Kinfield, Clark Gillies, Westheath, and Woodlily. Priority 3 skating pads include Elgin and Henleaze. The crokicurl surface will be moved to the Kinsmen

Sportsplex from Elgin Park for daily maintenance. This move will increase programming and availability while mitigating damage, Osmachenko said. The parks and rec department has also identified Elgin Park as a possible site for a skating trail to support the skating pad. The Parkhill shack will be moved to Regal Heights to create a permanent shack that would increase year-round participation for the outdoor rink, playground programs and soccer. Westheath will be operated until the property has been subdivided and the outdoor rink has been decommissioned. Outdoor recreational amenities will be included in the Westheath subdivision park development based on the concept plan. The department will also speak with the Wakamow Valley Authority about maintenance responsibilities for the cross-country ski trail. Osmachenko noted the depart-

ment has usually been responsible for the maintenance of these trails. The budget for this year’s outdoor ice surface program is $92,241. By implementing the maintenance priority system, all residents will be able to participate in outdoor ice surfaces in their neighbourhoods, Osmachenko added. The goal is for all residents to be within a 1,000-metre radius of an ice rink. This radius was chosen as the designated walking distance since it mirrors Prairie South School Division’s transportation policies. The outdoor rink master plan also lists the capital projects planned for each site during the next 10 years, with projects ranging in price from $5,000 for park benches and other infrastructure at several locations, to $120,000 for new playgrounds at Moose Square and Ross WellsClark Gillies.

City Hall Council Notes Bloggers are not legitimate news outlets, say some city councillors Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Who should be considered a journalist and what media outlets are legitimate? Should bloggers be given the same access as professionally trained reporters? Those were some questions city council wrestled with during its June 24 executive committee meeting, while reviewing a proposed communications policy for the City of Moose Jaw. Communications manager Craig Hemingway produced the draft policy since the municipality does not have an all-encompassing plan. The proposed document includes guidelines that focus on media relations, public engagement strategies, social media usage, announcements about construction projects, emergencies, city council meetings, and internal communications. It was the section on media relations and policies to handle news outlets that riled some councillors. Specifically, some councillors did not like that two blogs in Moose Jaw were listed in the document. Some councillors also did not like a policy clause that read, “The City reserves the right to stop accommodating requests in cases where the respective media outlet continues to have false information, bias or a specific slant within their stories.” In the end, council voted 5-2 in favour of removing the names of the blogs from the document; Councillors Crystal Froese and Brian Swanson were opposed.

Council then voted 6-1 in favour of removing the offending policy clause; Coun. Dawn Luhning was opposed. Council then voted 6-1 on a recommendation to adopt the policy; Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Fake news and slanted news “I am concerned about that (policy) statement,” said Coun. Chris Warren. He explained that while false information is one thing, council can’t control if an outlet slants the news. He preferred to see that line “refined” so it doesn’t appear as if city hall doesn’t want to communicate with the media if outlets take a negative view of the municipality. The same policy clause also bothered Froese, who pointed out editors have a right to their opinions. They take those positions to sell more newspapers or bring more eyeballs to their websites. Froese’s background is in communications, so she has dealt with many media outlets in her career. She noted the old standard was to ask for a correction, an apology or even a retraction if something was incorrect. However, she did not think council should tell people whether they are legitimate. The online world is changing quickly, Froese said, and more people acquire their information from places such as Buzzfeed and Huffington Post. “It is more important that our communications strategy is strong,” she added. Culture change in news consumption The beginning of that clause says the municipality will monitor media cover-

age “and with discretion, may seek corrections if we deem the content to be incorrect, one-sided or a misrepresentation,” said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. City hall dealt with that problem in the past by speaking to the editors of the traditional news outlets — the Times-Herald or Discover Moose Jaw — if something was inaccurate. However, he continued, there has been a “cultural change” with online news outlets. This dilemma was raised during a meeting at the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA), which discussed what authentic news is and if blogging is legitimate. “Bloggers don’t have editors. How do you hold bloggers accountable for what they’re relaying to community?” said Tolmie. Council has an obligation to its citizens to communicate what is happening in Moose Jaw and to get the facts right, he continued. If it doesn’t, the media is there to keep it accountable. Tolmie accepted that there will be a news slant, but said there could be problems if a blog publishes something and is unwilling to correct it. Are bloggers reporters? This is why traditional media reporters have credentials, Tolmie said. They have been given something to indicate they can have access to the information. The reporters who work at such places as Discover Moose Jaw or the Moose Jaw Express are also held accountable based on their capabilities and by their editors.


Proposed policy would see budget finished before new year begins


The Council of the City of Moose Jaw intends to consider a bylaw pursuant to The Planning and Development Act, 2007 to amend the City of Moose Jaw’s Zoning Bylaw No. 5346, and Planning Fee Bylaw No. 5510.

Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Coun. Dawn Luhning appreciates how a proposed budgeting policy for Moose Jaw could see the budget finished before a new calendar year begins. There were times when she attended Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA) conferences in December and other delegates asked her how Moose Jaw’s budget looked. Her reply was the municipality hadn’t even started talking about it; meanwhile, other communities had already finished putting together their finances. During its June 24 executive committee meeting, city council voted 6-1 on a recommendation to approve a draft budgeting policy and have it inserted into the City Administration Bylaw so it can return to council for final approval. Background The municipality annually prepares operating, capital and equipment budgets,

with the process usually starting in September and budgets delivered to council by late December, explained Brian Acker, director of financial services. Council discussions then begin in January, with approvals ranging from February to April.

A detailed budget document provides information on the operating and capital plan and is summarized in about 125 pages, compared to previous budget packages of 494 pages, he continued. By having the budget in place before the start of

the fiscal year, city administration can monitor the actual performance of the budget from the beginning of the fiscal year, Acker added. This gives more opportunity to correct budget deviations.

Dated this 3rd day of July 2019 . Carol Bellefeuille, Administrator

The purpose of the amendments is to update the Zoning Bylaw text for re-formatting, to correct conflicting information and errors, and provide clarification. Updates to land uses and development standards are also proposed for consistency and to reflect current trends and practice. Amendments are proposed for the following Zoning Bylaw sections: Section 2 – Definition, Section 3 – Administration, Section 4 – General Regulations, Section 5 – Required Parking and Loading, Sections 6-10 Zoning Districts, Section 11 – Signs. Amendments to the Planning Fee Bylaw are also proposed to move Sign Permit fees from Sign Bylaw No. 4220 to the Planning Fee Bylaw. The proposed fees have been adjusted to more accurately represent the administrative costs for Sign Permit reviews.


Description of Property

Reporting that consistently has a slant or bias would raise a red flag more than an outlet that does it once, said Hemingway. “I would like to treat this on a caseby-base basis,” he said, adding he did not want to stop accommodating media requests. Hemingway remarked that anyone can sit in the council gallery and tweet out what’s happening using quotes from councillors. He thought it was important to operate in good faith and be fair. “Is a blogger a reporter?” asked Tolmie. If someone is reporting on what’s happening, then in his mind yes, that blogger is a reporter, said Hemingway, giving the example of some sports bloggers being more successful than traditional news outlets. Luhning did not dispute that anyone can sit in the gallery and post stories online from council meetings. However, she did believe there was a difference between a professionally trained journalist and a blogger, saying journalists are accountable to a news organization and have editors. “I am not confident that we should have be naming bloggers in the policy. I like see those taken out and the sentence generalized,” said Luhning. “I think (the policy) is timely and I do think we have a right, as elected officials and administration, to make sure the story gets out properly.” The next executive committee meeting is Monday, July 8.

Youth committee wants BioBags to replace plastic bags Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Single-use plastic bags are detrimental to the environment and take more than 500 years to decompose, which is why city council’s youth advisory committee wants the municipality to adopt BioBags. BioBags are a compostable alternative to plastic bags and are nearly identical in function, but break down more easily in the soil, members of the committee told city council on June 24 during the regular council meeting. BioBags are constructed of MaterBi, a resin made from plants, compostable polymers and vegetable oils. They take 45 days to decompose when in soil or sunlight. “After using a BioBag, you have two options,” explained Meagan Barclay, a student at Cornerstone Christian School. “You can put it in your compost bin, where it will break down into nutrient-rich fertilizer, or (you can)

toss it in your garbage can, where it will be taken to a landfill and break down there. “Either way, the bag leaves behind helpful soil instead of dangerous toxins.” The main manufacturer of BioBags resides in San Leandro, Calif., although the bags are also manufactured in countries such as Estonia and Thailand. Between 500 billion and one trillion plastic bags are consumed each year worldwide, which means one million are used every minute of the day, said Jordan Boulton of Central Collegiate. Only one out of every 200 plastic bags — or about five per cent — are recycled. Furthermore, the average grocery store in Canada sells 200 bags per hour, while Environment and Climate Change Canada says Canadians throw away more than

34 million plastic bags every day, Boulton continued. Most plastic bags end up in the landfill and can take centuries to decompose. The federal government has said it intends to ban single-use plastics by 2021. Municipalities that have adopted BioBags and that have had success with them include Bethal, Ala.; Norwalk, Conn.; Lynn, Mass.; Santa Fe, New Mexico; New York, N.Y.; Portland, Ore.; and San Francisco, Calif. Administration will take the youth committee’s presentation and the information within it and investigate if the committee’s suggestions are possible. The next regular council meeting is Monday, July 8.

Biodegradable, compostable and degradable important environmental concepts to know Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express A group of youths believes it is important to know the difference among the terms biodegradable, compostable and degradable, since those expressions can have an effect on the environment. Biodegradable is a term used when describing organic materials that break down in a specific environment, explained Jenna Meili, a member of the municipality’s youth advisory committee and a student at Vanier Collegiate. This term is often misused in marketing and advertising of products and materials that are not actually environmentally

friendly. “Many companies market products as biodegradable because it will break down, but they do not specify how long it will take, which could be thousands of years to fully decompose,” Meili told city council on June 24 during the regular council meeting. Compostable is the process of breaking down organic waste by microbial digestion to create compost, she continued. The main goal of composting is to recycle organic waste so it can eventually be reused. Natural products such as

BioBags are compostable. During the presentation, the youth advisory committee urged city council to ban single-use plastic bags and adopt BioBags as a suitable replacement, which would be less harmful to the environment. Degradable plastic products, Meili explained, do not fully break down. Instead, they break apart into microscopic pieces that take nearly a millennium to decompose. However, a BioBag takes three to six months to break down into organic material and causes no lasting

harm to the environment. The committee understands it would be inconvenient to eliminate plastic bags without providing a solution, he continued. Therefore, the youths’ alternative is to switch to BioBags. People are creatures of habit, so taking away plastic bags would be a difficult adjustment for some residents to make, said Ha’Keena Maneso of Vanier Collegiate. By integrating BioBags into the community, it will seem as if the plastic bags never left and the transition will be easier for everyone.

Some municipal committees could be combined, eliminated based on review results Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

A review of the viability of all municipal boards, committees and commissions shouldn’t diminish city hall’s future communications with residents, but will likely enhance it instead, says a city councillor. “I sit on several committees and … know that we sometimes struggle to get quorum, which makes you wonder if citizens are really engaged and are really interested in the topics that are on the certain committees,” said Coun. Crystal Froese. “But also there is an overlapping purpose with some of these committees as well, so merging a couple of them (would) strengthen their purpose.” During its June 24 executive committee meeting, council voted 6-1 to have city administration engage in a

Councilor Division 3 will be received by the undersigned at the Municipal Office at 203 Main Street during regular business hours until 4:00pm on Wednesday the 7th day of August, 2019. Nomination forms may be obtained from the Municipal Office at 203 Main Street. Dated this 11th day of July, 2019.

review of every municipal board, committee and commission structure and appointment with the goal of “rationalization.” This means possibly eliminating duplication with other community groups doing similar work; eliminating any municipal bodies that may have lost a clear need; or combining committees so they function in a way that best uses resources and members’ time. Furthermore, the review would look at which committees need to retain elected member representation, as well as whether additional reporting mechanisms could strengthen the monitoring of third-party boards receiving municipal funding. The review would include addressing different means of engaging the public and

seeking feedback on topics and/or the creation of single-purpose ad hoc committees with a limited mandate. City administration is expected to provide a report of its finding to executive committee by the end of this October. Before that, municipal officials will approach all members on boards, committees or commissions whose terms expire this August and ask if they would serve until Dec. 31. The City of Moose Jaw has used committees, commissions and boards to acquire public input and advice, explained city clerk Myron Gulka-Tiechko. A review of these structures will determine if these bodies continue to meet the municipality’s needs.

Public meeting reveals proposed sites for joint-use school Input sought on four potential sites for new school on South Hill Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The new joint-use school on South Hill is another small step closer to fruition. The Prairie South and Holy Trinity Catholic School Divisions recently held a second public input meeting for the construction of the new 1,000-plus student facility, this time seeking suggestions on which of four sites was most preferable. All four areas – located at Westmount School, Smith Park, Coteau Street/Wellington Drive and Currie Heights South – were revealed during the meeting, with the goal of drawing comments with regards to pros and cons of each area. Holy Trinity director of education Sean Chase said the two divisions worked with the City of Moose Jaw and the Ministry of Education to identify multiple sites before narrowing down to the four presented at the meeting. “There were many items to consider as we tried to present there, the size of land being one of them, the accessibility of the land as well as safety considerations were top of mind for us,’ Chase said. “We had already heard that, but the people at the Ministry of Education know what they’re doing; they were very good at helping us vet even down to where we are tonight.” The meeting drew around 100 people, with organizers tasking each table of four or five individuals with what they thought was best and what was least attractive about each site, an opportunity that drew plenty of constructive discussions. “It absolutely affirmed what we heard March 28 from many families that came out that evening,” Chase said. “People are excited about the announcement; they’re celebrating the announcement and they want to make sure this is a legacy project. . . This is the first new school in Moose Jaw in over three decades by the time it’s built, so we want to make sure we get it right and leave a lasting legacy that meets as many of the check-boxes as we can.” Prior to the meeting, members of both divisions visited other joint use schools in the province – specifically in Regina and Swift Current – with the goal of evaluating how they’re used and what ideas could be transferred to Moose Jaw. That led to the selection of possible sites and the needs and amenities of each. The Westmount site is centrally located to the four schools being consolidated and is situated on a large parcel of land. But building the school there would take out several ball diamonds, which would affect City programming as well as landscape infrastructure that would need replacement. The Smith Field site is located adjacent to Sacred Heart School and also features over 13 acres of land to build on, but would remove a heavily used soccer facility as well as require a phased construction approach to build while Sacred Heart remains in operation. The Coteau South West site is a completely open 16-acre tract of land that is ready for utility service, but is on the edge of the

Currie Heights South is the largest and most open of all the sites, as it’s located in a current farm field. But the site fall out of the city boundaries, has no city services and would require annexation from the rural municipality. Chase and his fellow committee members were impressed with what they heard from those who took part. “I heard lots of engagement from families who have done a lot of consideration before even arriving tonight, which is positive from our side,” he said. “Many had done their homework in advance and thought through some of these things, lots spoke already of having walked the streets and said, ‘this is a narrow street, this could be a concern’. That level of engagement was exactly what we were hoping to hear tonight because obviously we’ve taken our own steps and have some

thoughts we’ve created and we wanted to hear matching thoughts from our stakeholders.” The committee plans to look at the comments on each site closely and make a

decision with other parties. When the decision will officially be made is up in the air, as a deliberate approach has been the plan since day one of the project. As such, site selection will be carefully performed, as will each step of the project going forward, which makes selecting a concrete date for each step difficult. “There’s excitement and there’s also need,” Chase said. “One of the things we discussed at the steering committee level is getting through the site selection, establishing a firm opening date in consultation with the project manager we’ve selected. “What that enables us to do as administration and boards of education is say ‘here are the pressing needs for infrastructure in our four existing schools lets address those so they’re safe and viable schools until the opening of the new one and then move forward’… we believe it’s better to keep some of those schools open and viable (for the time being) rather than rush this decision knowing how many tax dollars go into it and how it’s going to last us multiple generations.”

Participants in the second joint-use school meeting listen to the beginning of the presentation.

Bantam Mustangs win South Sask Lacrosse League championship Midget Mustangs reach final, fall in deciding game of SSLL double knockout tourney Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Mustangs turned a season of success into a South Saskatchewan Lacrosse League Bantam division champion on the weekend of June 22nd in Estevan. The Mustangs needed an overtime win in the semifinal and a one-goal victory in the gold medal game to claim the title after posting a 10-0 record through the regular season – a testament to the annual ritual of things getting very interesting during the SSLL playoff tournaments. Their counterparts in the Midget division also finished 10-0 on the season, but lost Saturday afternoon before winning a pair of games Sunday to force a 10-minute mini-game for all the marbles, a contest they lost 2-0 to settle for silver. Bantam Mustangs 9, Swift Current TT 4 The Bantam Mustangs opened their weekend with a commanding win in the quarter-final, taking a 5-1 lead out of the first period and never looking back. Liam Fitzpatrick scored twice and added an assist for Moose Jaw, while Rowan Calvert picked up four goals and a helper of his own. Eric Woodley, Colton Ebbett and Davin Williams all had single mark-

ers. Bantam Mustangs 3, Swift Current MW 2 OT Things were far closer in the semifinal against the second Swift Current entry before the Mustangs prevailed in overtime. Josh Johnson scoring with 3:39 remaining to tie the game before Calvert scored his second of the contest 4:42 into the extra frame to send Moose Jaw into the gold medal game. Bantam Mustangs 2, Swift Current MW 1 Overtime wasn’t needed to decide a league champion, but it was just as close all the same. Fitzpatrick scored the game’s first goal 4:27 into the second period and saw his lead last until the midway point of the third when Swift Current tied things 1-1. That set the stage for Eric Woodley, who scored the game-winning goal with 4:24 remaining to give the Mustangs their second gold medal in as many years. Walker Williams was in net throughout the weekend and turned in a trio of stellar performance on their way to the win.

The Moose Jaw Midget Mustangs took a tough loss in the South Sask Lacrosse League championship final.

The Moose Jaw Mustangs gather for a team photo with the championship trophy after repeating as the South Sask Lacrosse League Bantam division champions. Midget Mustangs 12, Regina Snipers 4 The Midget Mustangs kicked off the defence of their league title in impressive fashion, using a big first period to take a 5-2 lead and adding five more goals in the second. Atley Calvert – who was later in the day was named Elite 15 team MVP at the Prairie Hockey Academy awards banquet – scored four times and added three assists to lead the offence. Bryden Bell scored twice, while Rhett Chute, Caelan Fitzpatrick, Brennan Watterson, Kael Nichols, Kayde Shymko and Brennan Blatz all had single goals as Moose Jaw showed off their balanced attack. Midget Mustangs 9, Regina Attack 4 While scoring information was unavailable for the Mustangs’ second game, the aforementioned team balance took a serious hit as six of their top players were unavailable to due to prior commitments. The end result saw the Mustangs lose their first game in league play this season and drop down to the ‘B’ side of the double knockout tournament.

Midget Mustangs 8, Regina Attack 6 After defeating the Regina Snipers 6-5 in the ‘B’ final in the second 8 a.m. meeting between the two teams, the Mustangs had far better luck in their rematch with the Attack and a full line-up at their disposal. Blatz, Nichols, Calvert and Ethan Peters all scored first period goals as the Mustangs built a 4-2 lead and never looked back. Peters finished with two goals alongside a pair of markers from Fitzpatrick. Bell added their other marker. Attack 2, Mustangs 0 The Mustangs win over the Attack forced a second game in the double knock-out, this one a 10 minute mini-contest to determine the gold medal winners. Riley Smith scored at the 2:16 mark and Brett Thakack added an insurance marker with 5:23 remaining as Regina took the 2-0 win and the league title. Mac Simpson was in goal throughout the tournament for Moose Jaw.

Mustangs honour departing Michaluk

Long time local coach and player moving to Swift Current this summer after decades of service to MJLAX Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Steve Michaluk knew something was up prior to the Moose Jaw Bantam Mustangs playoff game, thinking the planned pre-game presentation was all about honouring long-time local lacrosse president Bobbi Ingalls with the inaugural builder award. That was just part of the ceremony, but Michaluk, is nearing the end of his time with the Mustangs and after more than two decades as a player, coach, mentor and everything possible in the sport of lacrosse in the city, he and his family are moving to Swift Current. Michaluk will be advancing his career as a teacher. So the last local game for the team Michaluk currently coaches, the aforementioned Bantam Mustangs, was the perfect opportunity to honour him who has given so much to so many. Members of the board of directors and longtime fellow lacrosse supporters were on hand for the presentation, which included a set of framed jerseys from his

time as a player as well as one from his son Carter, a current player with the Bantams. Included in the ceremony were heart-

felt speeches from board member Derek Burns, who played for Michaluk back in the day, as well as MJLAX president Cody Nidesh.

“With every door that closes there’s a new opportunity,” said Nidesh, “and it’s unfortunate to lose a guy like that but he’s been such a good mentor to many of us. “The coaching development has been huge and the player development, too. He’s coached so many kids that now they’re coming back as coaches, and it’s amazing to see the programs he put in place continue to develop both players and coaches today.” It’s all a labour of love for Michaluk, especially given his lifelong dedication to the sport – one that has drawn the respect of the sports community as a whole, as he was inducted into the Moose Jaw and District Sports Hall of Fame in 2017. One door closes, another opens Further collaboration between the two organizations in Moose Jaw and Swift Current is a certainty, a plan Nidesh and his fellow MJLAX counterparts are looking forward to seeing develop.

Warriors well-represented at upcoming Hockey Canada selection camps Hunt, Korczak to Under-18 camp, prospect Ceulemans take part in Under-17 camp Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw Warriors defenceman Daemon Hunt, 17, was one of the three players from the Warriors to receive invites to training and development camps for upcoming international tournaments, as he’ll take the ice alongside Ryder Korczak as Canada prepares for the Hlinka Gretzky Under-18 Championship, while prospect Corson Ceulemans will suit up at the National Under-17 Development camp for the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge. Hunt has been a regular on Team Canada’s radar ever since his impressive break-out season as a first-year Bantam in 2015-16. The Brandon product played for Canada Black at the U17 World Hockey Challenge last fall, picking up a pair of assists, and was then named to Team Canada for the World Under-18 Championship in the spring, picking up a single assist as Canada fell to the U.S. in the bronze medal game. In his first full season with the Warriors, Hunt scored seven times and added 13 assists for 20 points in 57 games. Korczak is entering his 17-year-old season, having joined the Warriors from Calgary as part of the trade that sent Jett Woo to the Hitmen. The Yorkton product had eight goals and 15 points in 50 games for Calgary in 2018-19 and will have his second crack at a Hockey Canada team – he played for Team Saskatchewan at the

WHL Cup Under-16 tournament and was held without a point in five games. Korczak had eight goals and 15 points while seeing action in 50 games with the Hitmen last season. Ceulemans turned 16 this spring and was the Warriors’ fifth pick, 100th overall in the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft. He scored 13 goals and 29 points while playing with OHA Edmonton in the Canadian Sport School Hockey League Midget Prep division. He played for the Western Canada Selects in the World Selects Invitational Under-15 tournament in 2018, picking up a goal and an assist in eight games, and took the ice with Team Alberta at the 2018-19 Canada Winter Games, where he had a goal and five points in six games. The Under-18 selection camp runs from July 26-30 at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary, with the Hlinka Gretzky tournament running from Aug. 5-10 in Breclav, Czech Republic and Piestany, Slovakia. Warriors general manager Alan Millar is part of the Hockey Canada management group for the tournament, while assistant coach Mark O’Leary is a guest coach. The Under-17 development camp runs from July 19-26 in Calgary, with 66 players named to one of three Team Canada squads playing in the tournament Nov 2-9 in Medicine Hat and Swift Current.

Daemon Hunt will have a crack a playing for Canada at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup after being named to the under-18 selection camp recently.

WHL releases 2019-20 schedule

Before you know it, it will be time to head back to the rink. The Western Hockey League released the schedule for the 2019-20 season on June 26. The Moose Jaw Warriors will open their season on the road against their rivals the Regina Pats on Friday, Sept. 20. That will be followed by the home opener, which will serve as the second half of a homeand-home with the Pats on Saturday, Sept. 21. The Warriors will play 11 of their first 17

games on home ice. The month of February, however, will be spent largely on the road. Of course, that is partly due to the 2020 Scotties, which will be held from Feb. 15 to 23 at Mosaic Place. As a result, Moose Jaw will host Saskatoon on Feb. 8 as the first part of a homeand-home series but won’t play again at Mosaic Place until Feb. 28. During that break they will play seven road games, which includes a trip to the United States to take on Spokane, Tri Cities, Seattle,

Portland, and Everett. The Warriors will play the Winnipeg Ice — formerly the Kootenay Ice — for the first time on Friday, Nov. 8 at Mosaic Place. Moose Jaw’s first game in Winnipeg will be on Sunday, Jan. 26. The Warriors will finish their season with a home-and-home series against the Pats; their last game of the season will be at Mosaic Place on Saturday, March 21. The WHL playoffs will begin on Friday, March 27. In a press release, the league says it is

trying to include fewer weekday games. In 2019-20, the Warriors will play eight games on Wednesdays and eight on Tuesdays. The team will not have any Monday or Thursday games this season; all other games will be played on the weekends, with just eight Sunday games in total. For the second year in a row, WHL teams will play 68 games during the regular season. Prior to the 2018-19 season, clubs played 72 games.

After their win at Ross Wells Park on Sunday, the Millionaires’ celebration rubbed the Miller Express the wrong way and led to a minor post-game confrontation. Turns out, the baseball gods weren’t all that impressed either, leading to one of the most lopsided wins the Express have put together this season. Moose Jaw rolled out to a 7-0 lead through four innings, tacked on another seven runs in the seventh and added three more in the ninth for good measure to take their commanding victory.

Warriors select Sweden’s Wallstedt with import draft pick. Highly touted netminder projected to be a high pick in 2021 NHL Draft

The answer was simple: go with the best player available and let the chips fall where they may – after making your pitch, of course. And with that, the Warriors selected highly touted Swedish goaltender Jesper Wallstedt from Lulea HF J20 in the SuperElit League. “With (Vladislav) Yeryomenko being a 20-year-old, we tried to take the highest 2002-born player we had on the board, whether they were coming or not, and try and add an impact player,” explained Warriors general manager Alan Millar. “His resume is full of international experience, two World Under-18s as an underage player. He’s a 6-foot-3 goaltender that people in the game and NHL project as a potential first-round pick in 2021. So we felt he’d be a good addition to our club.” Wallstedt’s resume is impressive, to say the least. The 16-year-old Vasteras product has represented Sweden internationally on a regular basis since 2016-17, including the two World Under-18 championship appearances. Most recently, he suited up for the gold-medal winning Swedes in the World U18 tournament this past spring, taking the ice in a pair of games and posting a 1.50 goals against average and .936 save percentage in a pair of games. With Lulea in SuperElit, Wallstedt played 21 games with

In order to make room for their potential pick, the Warriors had earlier released Belorussian forward Yegor Buyalski. Two factors complicating matters are Wallstedt’s commitment to the Warriors and where Yeryomenko will land after training camp with the Nashville Predators this fall. First, Wallstedt. There’s some question as to whether

or not he’ll play in Canada this winter, with Millar and Warriors head coach Tim Hunter set to meet with the player and his father in Vancouver in July. With Yeryomenko, Millar’s understanding is the Predators want him to play another season in the Western Hockey League – but as often the case with import players and especially overagers, a lot can change in the coming months. “Any time a 20-year-old goes to an NHL camp they could earn an NHL contract and end up playing in the American Hockey League,” Millar said. “So there are some variables that could impact what we have for import players, and that’s a process that will play out this off-season and certainly into the early parts of the season.” If things work out perfectly and both players end up in Moose Jaw for the coming season, decisions will have to be made in that regard as well – the Tribe would have to decide on their two imports between Wallstedt, Yeryomenko and the returning Daniil Stepanov, who scored 18 goals and 19 points in 68 games as a rookie last season. “I think we want competition at our camp from top to bottom,” Millar said. “This will create competition in the crease and competition with our import players, but at the same time I think there’s a process to be fair to everybody and make sure that everybody gets a chance to play. We have to do what’s in the best interest in our club and we have to go through the process with Yeryomenko in Nashville to see if he’s even back. “So there are lots of variables and we have to wait and see how things play out.”

From The Kitchen P i o n e e r h o m e m a k e r s’ r e c i p e s s t a n d t e st o f t i m e By Joyce Walter For Moose Jaw Express

Stuffed into a box of clippings was a heritage-style book of recipes that might have been used by pioneer homemakers. The pages were yellowed, the cover was missing but it appears the recipes were related to years gone by when eating outside the home was only done at community gatherings where dishes were prepared to share with friends. Three cake recipes were of particular interest for this week’s column. •••

Chocolate Buttermilk Cake 1/2 cup butter 1 1/2 cups white sugar 1 tsp. vanilla 2 eggs 2 sqs. unsweetened chocolate, melted 1 1/2 tsps. soda 1/2 tsp. salt 2 cups sifted flour

1 1/2 cups buttermilk

Cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Mix in eggs and chocolate. Sift soda, salt and flour and add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Bake in a greased and floured 9x13 inch pan at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. •••

Boiled Raisin Cake 2 cups raisins 2 1/2 cups water 1 cup butter or oil 2 cups brown sugar 2 eggs 1 tsp. vanilla 2 1/2 cups sifted flour 2 tsps. baking soda 1 tsp. baking powder 2 tsps. cinnamon

2 tsps. nutmeg 1 tsp. salt Icing: 1/3 cup butter 1 cup brown sugar 5 tbsps. milk 1 1/2-2 cups sifted icing sugar


For the cake, simmer the raisins and water until raisins puff. Cool. Mix butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Add the raisin juice. Sift dry ingredients together and add to butter mixture. Fold in raisins. Pour into a greased and floured 9x13 inch pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes. Cool. For the icing, melt the butter and add the brown sugar. Boil over low heat for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in 5 tbsps. milk and heat until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and cool to lukewarm. Then stir in icing sugar and beat until thick enough to spread. Ice cake, let icing set and then serve.

Matrimonial Cake 1/2 lb. dates 1 cup flour 1 tsp. soda 1/2 tsp. salt 1 cup butter 1 cup brown sugar 2 cups rolled oats

Cook dates in 1/2 cup water until mushy. Sift flour, soda and salt. Rub in butter and add brown sugar and oats. Spread one-half of the crumbs in a 9x9 inch pan. Cover with date filling and top with remaining brown sugar mixture. Pat smooth. Bake at 325 degrees F for 40 minutes. Joyce Walter can be reached at

Day trip to Lucky Lake marsh for photos wasn’t that lucky By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

With two days of spring left and not having been on a day trip, Yours Truly headed for the Lucky Lake marsh on the north side of the South Saskatchewan River. Decades ago, a Ducks Unlimited project preserved a marsh on the alkaline lake with a road trail across the lake – a road that had been closed after erosion. The drive involved crossing the river on the Riverhurst ferry and a nice chat with the operators. I asked about the bear sightings and was told bear had been seen in Douglas Park and Danielson Park on both sides of the river. What was once a paved road to Birsay, now mostly gravel, took me there. Along the way a neat old square two-storey home was partly hidden by a hill with a large Old house barn on the hill. Neither seems used except by pigeons and mice. Crops looked pretty good, considering the lack of rain. dusty, so dusty I almost missed the turn into the lake. On this blustery day few birds hung around in the lake. All that rain in the next few days would perk them up. The grid road to the north end of Lucky Lake was quite Plenty of ducks and gulls sat in a little bay. A willet shorebird and a few phalaropes dined in the shallows. Some ruddy ducks and grebes bounced among the churning waves like bobbing apples at Halloween. The Lucky Lake marsh was a disappointment, so much so that I didn’t drive around the lake to where there is 800 acres of wetlands - giving an excuse to return on a nicer day. During a late breakfast at the Birsay Kitchen the women at coffee talked about the high costs of groceries and wondered how young people get by. The men at coffee talked about trucks and panning for gold. Phalarope A for sale sign hung in the window of the Birsay Kitchen,

a cafe, confectionery and post office. I thought: another rural community faces possible loss of service. After ordering take-out of two slices of home-made saskatoon pie, back in my green Prius I drove around the little town seeing well-kept homes and the unique United Church. The road home was via Gardiner Dam, where pelicans battled waves, and Elbow. Crops seemed surprisingly good, given the little rainfall to that point. The irrigated crops were really lush.

On the Front Porch by Wanda Smith

New Book about International Bible College By Lyle Esau, M.A.

Bird Issues Growing up, birds were undesirable to me. Chickens pecked. Geese chased. Sparrows swooped. I had several negative experiences with birds, including when one relieved itself on my shoulder. There were times a bird would find its way into the house through the woodstove chimney... and out the damper it would fly; desperate to find its way outside again. I would run to my room and shut the door until I heard the coast was clear. One summer, I had decided to move my bedroom downstairs where it was much cooler. In the meantime, one of our geese had died so its mate would come by the basement window, pecking at its reflection, thinking it was his partner. I’m glad that glass held up. And chickens? They grossed me out. Have you ever butchered them? That just about did me in. And to top it off, Sis and I were in charge of cleaning eggs. Nuff said. Turn the tables, thirty years later and I’m finally coming around. It has taken me some time to come to appreciate fowl. Interestingly, it started with a nondescript little house wren. I had hung a birdhouse, made by my grandpa, in a tree in the garden at Hubby’s and my first home. One day, I noticed that a bird had actually made a nest in the birdhouse, much to my surprise. My mother-in-law mentioned it was a house wren. So in the days that followed, I took a liking to this little wren, especially when I learned that his song was so big and beautiful! After moving to our next home, I decided to put up another birdhouse built by my grandpa, this time straight out from my window at the kitchen sink. Sure enough, a house wren made its nest in it, too. On many days when I was feeling lonely or down, that little wren would sing heavenly songs to me just as though they were straight from heaven. Next came the persistence of Big Sweet Pea to help me work through my chicken issues. Eight years ago, she begged for chickens but that was definitely one thing her father and I agreed on... no chickens! However, if she was willing to pay the price of responsibility, she could have some. To this day, she has kept her word of feeding, watering, gathering eggs and cleaning the coop. However, time marches on and as she’s been in transition, going away to school and work, Lil Sweet Pea, Hubby and I have had to step up to the plate to help with the chicken chores. Since we know Big Sweet Pea won’t be returning home this fall, we’ve had some discussion as to whether or not we will keep the chickens. I’ve gone from not ever stepping foot into the chicken run to taking kindly to those birds, collecting the eggs and feeding them scraps. I’m just not so sure about giving them up now. It does my heart good to hear their cocka-doodle-dos in the morning or to see their curious looks when I shut them in at night. Three white hens sleep in the nesting boxes so when I shut them in for the night; they peer out the boxes in the funniest fashion and cause me to chuckle every time. The Word of God refers to birds. Sparrows remind us 60 Athabasca Street East that God looks after us. Eagles remind us to fly above 306-692-0533 our circumstances doves remind us to be innocent Minister: Rev.and Jim Tenford Music Karen Purdy and pure.Director: God has been trying to teach me life lessons through the birds... they are wonderful teachers. th Sunday, May 14 , 2017 Worship Service 10:30am & Sunday School

St. Andrew’s United Church

A former resident of Moose Jaw, Lyle Esau, has written a history of International Bible College, a Church of God Bible college, which came to Moose Jaw in 1962. In 2012, the college closed, due to student enrollment issues. When Lyle came to IBC in 1986, he needed some research material about the college for a history course he had been assigned to teach. Finding none, he wrote his own book. In 1935, a group of students ventured across the windswept winter prairies to a small school in North Dakota. On their return, they were stranded when their vehicle broke down. The next year, 1936, IBC was founded in the little town of Consul, SK. The following year the college moved to Robsart, not far from Consul. Today Robsart is a ghost town. From there the college moved to a campus in Moose Jaw, then on to an abandoned World War II Air Force training base near Estevan. In 1961, the largest building on that complex, a former aircraft hangar, burned

to the ground. The college moved back to Moose Jaw the following year. For the duration of IBC’s stay in Moose Jaw, students worked in various businesses throughout the city and served as volunteers in places such as Valley View Centre, Chez Nous Senior Citizens Home and Ina Grafton Gage Home for seniors, among others. While IBC’s former students have taken up a great number of occupations

around the world, some still live in Moose Jaw. The book is available for purchase through Signed copies of the book can obtained by texting the author at 587-253-0128. Lyle Esau was a long-term instructor at International Bible College. He holds a Master’s degree from Briercrest Seminary.

Realty Executives hosting charity BBQ as grand re-opening Larissa Kurz

Realty Executives recently underwent some changes, including a move to a new location, Mike Botterill becoming the sole owner of the firm, and a merge with agents from LJ Agencies Ltd. To honor the forward-looking changes, Realty Executives has planned a grand re-opening celebration: a charity BBQ with all proceeds donated to the Canadian Mental Health Association. Taking place on July 5 from 11:30am to 1:30pm, at their office location at 70 Athabasca St. W, there will be a chance to meet the executives on the team and enjoy a hamburger or hot dog for a good cause. Botterill feels good about continuing as a business owner in Moose Jaw, and wants the people of the community to know that the Realty Executives office has moved, settled in, and gotten right back to serving clients. “The location is fantastic. It’s close to everything,” said Botterill. “I’ve got some really good agents here and I think that the economy of Moose Jaw is going to pick up and things are going to happen, so I’m excited about the future.”

July 27th, 1926 - June 24th, 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce that William Lorne (Bill) Smith of Drinkwater, SK passed away at West Park Crossing in Moose Jaw, SK on Monday, June 24th, 2019. He was predeceased by his parents, Bill and Louise Smith; sister, June Woodley; brothers-in-law: Don Woodley, Jim Ellison, and Walter Pritchard; and sons-in-law, Neil Cunningham and Ian Lowe. Bill is survived by his loving wife of 70 years, Greta; his six daughters and their families: Lynn, Tracy (Jason), Alyssa, Brooklyn, Hailey; Trent (Angela), Curtis, Michael, Kaleb, Tyson; Kelly (Trevor), Cooper, Emery; Lorna (David), Jeff (Melissa), Ainsley, Owen; Robyn (Mac), Frances, Sam; Terry (Bill), Leslie (Dan), Nicholas, Burke; Kenda (Roger), Kayce, Marley; Ashley (Jordin), Scarlett, Griffin, Bill’s children; Rita (Kelly), Jayde (Conrad), Berklee; Corey (Larissa); Joan (Ed), Tianna (Cory), Deagan (Michelle), Ed’s children; and Gail (Mike), Joel, Nicole (Jake); sister, Norma (Bob) Watson; sisters-in-law: Marjorie Pritchard, Elizabeth (Earl) Campbell, and Donna Ellison; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Bill was born in Moose Jaw on July 27th, 1926. He married Greta in 1948 and together they built a successful farming operation in the Drinkwater area. He loved the land and took pride in the growing, the fixing, and all other facets of farming. He was a talented mechanic, welder and problem solver. Bill believed in hard work, integrity, honesty and free enterprise. He loved a good joke and lived his life with a twinkle in his eye. Bill believed in helping the community and directed his energies to numerous projects over the years. He was a member of the Drinkwater Community Club, Palliser Wheat Growers, and the Weyburn Inland Terminal. Bill was passionate about fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, and boating. Above all, Bill loved his family. He loved to give knee squeezes, loved teasing and loved supporting their many activities. We thank the staff at West Park Crossing for the heart felt care and compassion shown to Bill and his family through this difficult journey.

Offset credit plans rewardEXPRESS ing Saskatchewan agriculture for farming methods that sequester carbon dioxide are still unclear. The Saskatchewan Environment offset program co-ordinator Adam Gorr told the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association convention that the credits will likely be for maintaining soil practices. He was responding to a rancher who said farming methods have increased the carbon sink since 1990 and wanted to know if agriculture will get offset credits for past practice. Gorr said they are unable to pay credits for previous practice and would not allow perverse practice such as breaking native pasture then receiving credit for

Palliative care room at Pioneer Lodge complete and open Larissa Kurz

According to information released earlier this month, Heartland Hospice announced that their first palliative care room is completed and in use already. Heartland Hospice partnered with the Saskatchewan Health Authority on the project, making the room available through the Five Hills Health Region. The hospice care room takes a holistic approach to end of life care, offering dignity and comfort to the patient and their family. The palliative care room is located at Pioneer Lodge

In Loving Memory of Lillie Voytilla

on Albert Street and is fully furnished thanks to a generous donation from the Early Bird Lions Club earlier this year. Heartland Hospice stated in their press release that they are excited about the announcement, as their vision is “to establish a hospice palliative care facility in our community that provides physical, spiritual, social, and psychological care for individuals and their families.” Those interested in benefiting from the palliative care room are asked to contact the Five Hills Access Centre at 1 (866) 211-5696, or to discuss the idea with a physician.

May 13, 1942 - July 4th, 2014 When I must leave you for a little while, Please do not grieve and shed wild tears And hug your sorrow to you through the years, But start out bravely with a gallant smile; And for my sake and in my name Live on and do all things the same, Feed not your loneliness on empty days, But fill each waking hour in useful ways, Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near; And never, never be afraid to die, For I am waiting for you in the sky!

restoration. The offset credits can be sold or traded. Gorr said the province is exploring trade or sale to other Canadian or American jurisdictions as the demand in Saskatchewan will be low. Gorr and research analyst Dinah Tambalo outlined the province’s Resilience Plan to combat greenhouse gas emissions. The plan is based on 40 commitments in five key areas — natural systems, physical infrastructure such as electricity production, economic sustainability and community preparedness for floods or fires. Targets are set, measured, monitored and reported. Ranchers will qualify for offset credits on grassland but the programs will need verification and annual inspection to ensure standards are met.

The Senate should do its job and respect the nation’s regions Bill C-48 is the kind of extraordinary circumstance that requires the Senate fulfill its role as a regional counterbalance to the House By Elaine McCoy, Senator

The Senate’s fundamental job is to review legislation while respecting its regions. In that sense, it is a unique part of Canadian Parliament. The Senate is a built-in safety valve to protect regional interests against the majoritarian impulses of the elected chamber. It ensures that all parts of this diverse country have a meaningful voice in decisions that affect them. The principle of regional representation is an essential part of our Parliament that holds our Confederation together. Rarely has that principle been tested as much as it has with Bill C-48. The bill promises to ban oil tankers in ports along the central and northern coast of British Columbia. Never mind the fact that a voluntary tanker exclusion zone has been in place since the 1970s or that existing spill risks from hundreds of ferries and tugs, as well as cruise ships and container ships, remain unaddressed. It’s clear that the bill is a backdoor effort to prevent any new pipelines to transport Canadian oil to foreign markets. The message to Western Canadians is clear: there is no future for developing our natural resources.

It’s not surprising then that many senators are now standing up and calling for a halt on the bill. It’s exceedingly rare for the Senate to veto bills that have been passed by the House of Commons, but Bill C-48 is the kind of extraordinary circumstance that requires the Senate to step up and fulfil its role as a regional counterbalance. If you talk to people from Western Canada, you’ll sense immediately how visceral this issue is. Bill C-48 is not just a matter of public policy discussion; it’s an existential threat. It’s true that most elected members of Parliament voted for this bill. Does that make it right? Not when it threatens national unity. No vote in our national Parliament should target a single region so directly and so adversely. Western Canada’s economic future is not on offer. Some say that the Senate has no choice but to vote for the bill because of the Salisbury Convention, a British practice that requires the House of Lords to accept any measures that formed part of the government’s election platform. This attempt to graft on to Canadian parliamentary prac-

tice a British convention from the 1940s is totally out of place in our system. Beyond the fact that the House of Lords doesn’t have a regional representation function, we shouldn’t blindly set aside our unique political evolution to follow British practices. People from Central Canada who dismiss the Senate as an unelected relic fail to understand how essential a regional counterbalance is for those of us from other parts of the country. It is as much the glue holding us together now as it was when Confederation came together more than 150 years ago. That’s why we need to say no to Bill C-48. Passing legislation from the House of Commons should not be a perfunctory practice, carried out even when the evidence shows that lasting damage may be done. The Senate needs to fulfil its role and stand up for the constitutional rights of Canadians. It’s time to stop Bill C-48. Elaine McCoy, QC, has been an independent senator from Alberta since 2005 and was the first senator to hold the position of facilitator (leader) for the Independent Senators Group.
