Old time harvest experience at Sukanen threshing bee By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

Fifty continuous years of threshing bees will be celebrated at the annual Sukanen Ship Museum bee on Sept. 7 and Sept. 8. Half a century ago someone donated a threshing machine to the then small village to preserve the heritage of stand alone threshing. The museum needed funds to operate and decided on a threshing bee fundraiser. The response to see how pioneers brought in the harvest was so overwhelming the event became annual over two days. Added attractions still held every year involve reaping, ploughing, hand threshing, stationary baling, quilting, blacksmithing, square dancing, an antique tractor pull and two vehicle parades. Tractors are paraded in the mornings with cars and trucks just after lunch. Each morning starts with a hearty pancake breakfast from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Threshing has two machines, one powered by a steam-driven tractor, one by a vintage tractor. Two special dedications are on the plate this year.

The grand opening of the replica International Harvester dealership building is at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 7. Accessories for the traditional I-beam style structure came from a northern Alberta dealership that closed. The equipment belongs to members of the IHC chapter 38 Club. The 50th anniversary of the threshing bee will be recognized with remarks at the grandstand at 12:30 p.m. Sunday. Representatives from Tourism Saskatchewan will bring greetings. Activities for young folks are Sid the clown, people mover and barrel train rides and the playground with an old car to crawl around on. An old time dance and jam session entertains Saturday night. On Sunday morning at 11 a.m. a church service will take place in the heritage church. The museum, located 10 minutes drive south of Moose Jaw on Highway Two, will have all buildings open during the threshing bee. Ron Walter can be reached at

First-time students conquer that yellow bus with annual safety program Larissa Kurz

There was an excited group testing to be sure the wheels on the bus do, in fact, go around on Aug. 21 at Lindale Elementary School — and spoiler alert, they sure do. The First Rider program invited first-time students and their parents to give riding the school bus a test run prior to the first day of school. It’s meant to ease anxieties in both parents and kids, as well as give the new bus rider’s the run-down on bus rules and safety. Prairie South School Division has been operating the program for a number of years, but this year they joined with the Holy Trinity Catholic School Division, as well as the Moose Jaw Police Service and the City of Moose Jaw to promote the event. “[We’re all here] to help families realize we’re all working together on behalf of their children, and that’s what today’s all about,” said Sean Chase, director of Holy Trinity Catholic School Division. “If we can lower any fears they have about being on the bus, we hope for a much smoother experience for them for the first day.” The program is usually well-attended, according to PSSD director Tony Baldwin, and this year was no exception between the four sessions hosted over Aug. 20 and 21. “It’s really exciting to do it with some of our partners who are just as worried about kids and families as we are,” said Baldwin. “It’s a chance for [us at the school division] to make some connections with moms and dads and let them see we care about their kids. It’s not about caring about two hundred kids, it’s about caring for one kid two hundred times.” The nervous group of new students was taught the rules of the bus and what to do while getting on or off, as well as how to behave while waiting for the bus to arrive.

“We’re always interested in working with our schools to enhance student safety and public safety,” said Bourassa. “It’s good to see people engaged in all of us as a community working to keep people safe.” With the joint-use school in Moose Jaw’s future, and the integrated transportation schedule that the two school divisions have agreed upon, all parties involved are looking ahead to continued collaboration between school divisions. “[Prairie South and Holy Trinity] are doing something awesome and I appreciate that, and I look forward to more initiatives like this,” said Tolmie. “I can only endorse this and say that it’s going to be successful, and hats off to both school boards for coming together and making this happen.”

Livi Langston rode the bus without her mom, and did great — remembering to watch her step on the way down. Two buses loaded up parents and kids alike and bounced over to St. Michael Elementary School, where kids got to see how the bus will drop them off, before loading back up to return to Lindale School. The return trip challenged the kids to pick a seat without their parent, and practice riding solo — to help with the child’s confidence and the parent’s anxieties. MJPS Chief Rick Bourassa was happy to see so many attentive faces learning about being safe around schools.

The group learned the three most important rules before getting on the buses: stay seated, keep your hands to yourself, and no food or drinks.

Terry Fox Run keeps on rolling after nearly four decades Moose Jaw Express Staff

Terry Fox managed to run halfway across Canada before he died of cancer at age 22, but the movement he started has jogged on longer than the years he lived. The timeless Terry Fox Run hits the pavement in Moose Jaw on Sunday, Sept. 15 for its 39th year of raising funds for the Terry Fox Foundation and its single mission of innovative cancer research. Moose Javians are invited to join thousands of other Canadians in remembering Fox’s audacious effort by participating in the run. The run takes place in Moose Jaw at Elks Field at 1600 Caribou Street West. Registration starts at 10:30 a.m. while the run begins at 11:30 a.m. There is a post-run barbecue — free for participants — at 12:30 p.m. There will also be bouncy castles and games for families. There are two pre-event fundraiser barbecues planned to help cover the costs of the event barbecue and entertainment. The barbecues are scheduled for Friday, Aug. 30 and Friday, Sept. 13 at the Co-op grocery store in downtown Moose Jaw. Each event runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Anyone interested in joining the Terry Fox Run in Moose Jaw can register at and start taking pledges. For more information you can email or call community organizer Craig Hemingway at 306-513-8980. To date, the Terry Fox Foundation has raised $750 million and funded 1,314 cancer research projects. The foundation has contributed more than $5.6 million to childhood cancer research projects during the last five years. The five-year survival rate for T:4.85” childhood cancer is 83 per cent, up nearly 20 per cent from 1980.

Making Education a Top Priority MLA’s Column

Warren Michelson

Moose Jaw North Warren Michelson, MLA

School doors will open next week, and almost 6,000 Moose Jaw students will find teachers and school staff have already been hard at work to prepare for another year of learning. On the occasions when I am privileged to visit our schools, I am always impressed by the dedication of our educational staff and the many creative ways they engage students in learning. Thank you for all you do to create a brighter future for the students and for our world. Nelson Mandela once said; “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.� Education is the key to reducing poverty, to eliminating gender inequality, to creating a sustainable planet, to preventing unnecessary deaths and illness, and to inspire peace. Education has been shown to increase economic growth and stability on both personal and societal levels. Our provincial budget reflects the priority placed on education in our province. Twenty-two percent of the expense budget is invested in education, second only to health. Our Government has increased K-12 operating funding by 34 per cent since 2007 compared to an enrolment growth of 13 per cent. We have added more than 1100 teachers and support staff, and added 46 brand-new or replacement schools. The months ahead will be exciting for our local school divisions as planning continues for a new joint-use school to replace Empire, Westmount, St. Mary and Sacred Heart Schools. Prairie South and Holy Trinity School Divisions have been collaborating on the project, and

were very pleased when the new school was announced in the last budget. Public consultation began days after the announcement, and input regarding the location was gathered from community members last June. I was pleased to hear that significant progress has been made over the summer. Selection of a project manager to oversee the construction from design to completion should be made before the end of this month. KPMG Consulting are in the process of doing a site study. Using the information gathered from community meetings, they will recommend a preferred site for the school. Once the school divisions review their recommendation, a site will be selected and a design for the school can begin. Our school divisions are committed to continue updating and consulting with our community through all the phases of building. They encourage everyone to check the school division websites to see the latest updates on the new schools. Student safety is of utmost importance to all involved in education. Directors of Education from both Divisions took time from a busy day to provide information about the new school. Tony Baldwin and Sean Chase were taking part in “First Rider�, a new safety program to introduce Kindergarten Students and their families to school bus safety. The Kindergarten students had an opportunity to practice riding the bus before their first day of school. Returning students will be excited to meet with their friends as they go to school that first week. Please be extra cautious in school zones that have been quiet for the past two months. On our rural roads, attention is needed for the school bus “do not pass� flashing red lights, as well as the “slow vehicle� signs on harvesting equipment. We want everyone to stay safe. To all students and staff, I wish you a successful year of learning.

Not long ago, I was enjoying the early evening hours out on the deck and watched hundreds of blackbirds congregating and heading south; I presume for the winter. It seems our backyard birds of a feather have also flocked together and headed elsewhere. And on our way back from Calgary a couple weeks ago, seagulls by the hundreds were foraging in a field, preparing for Joan Ritchie their migration. EDITOR I can’t believe we are on the doorstep of fall; where did our short summer go? Another sure sign of the season will be the soonin-session school year. Families are on the hunt for schools supplies and possibly some new duds to start the year off. Mom and dad, now’s the time to wean the kids’ off late nights and sleep-in mornings. It’s a busy season for harvesting this year’s bounty, both in garden and field. It looks like in many areas locally, the crops rebounded beautifully despite the earlier draught forecast. During last-week’s ground-breaking ceremony of Golden South Wind Energy Facility in Assiniboia, the location in the middle of a golden wheat crop was an absolutely breathtaking picture of fall on the prairies and hopefully a fruitful sign of this year’s harvest and the potential of the Potentia Renewables project. As well, the 50th annual threshing bee at Sukanen Village will be held on September 7th and 8th. This is a fundraiser and a way to appreciate how the prairie pioneers brought in the harvest long ago. It’s a family friendly weekend to enjoy old-time fun. Although my garden seed-sowing was done much later this year than some other years, it seems the yield looks above average to date. Hopefully, the Mosaic Community Food Farm harvest will be bountiful also. On September 20th the vegetables will be harvested and distributed throughout many of Moose Jaw’s charity organizations such as the MJ & District Food Bank, Hunger in Moose Jaw, Souls Harbour Rescue Mission (Riverside Mission) and the Moose Jaw Multicultural Council so those less fortunate can eat the good of the land. Individuals are welcome to come and help out; just bring water, gloves, a spade and bugspray. The Moose Jaw Museum and Art Gallery Noon Hour Slides are just on the horizon, starting in October, featuring the travels of local presenters. Thru the eyes of others this year you will be able to experience trips to Spain, Portugal and Morocco, a cruise over the Atlantic to Europe, San Francisco, Antarctica, and a cruise on the Rhine River. Seniors are the focus this September at the Western Development Museum with programs directed to Grandparents’ Day and the Senior’s Week Tea. And gearing up for the winter season, Moose Jaw’s beloved Warriors will soon be on the ice with their first regular season in-town game on September 21st. Better get your season tickets now!

Have tech questions? Public library offers courses on iPhones, iPads Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Residents who have an iPhone, iPad, tablet or other device and are unsure of how to use it now have support thanks to the library. The Palliser Regional Library and Moose Jaw Public Library have teamed up to offer iPhone and iPad courses to people — particularly seniors — who may have received a device as a gift, or have owned a device for a while but need more direction on some of its hidden features. The regional library recently received $191,000 from the federal government to run programs that teach digital skills to Canadians and ensure no one is left behind in the digital economy. Led by employees from the regional library, the public library hosted a two-day training course during the first week of August. About a dozen people brought their iPhones, tablets and iPads, along with dozens of questions about how their device worked. The first course focused on getting to know the basics of the iPhone and iPad, such as learning where the power button is, manipulating the screen, adjusting the volume, locking the screen, and understanding other status bar icons. The second part of the course focused on using the device, such as taking photos, using Facetime, accessing the app store, or adjusting settings for privacy and safety. Darlene Norman attended both sessions that the regional library offered. She brought her iPhone and iPad on the first day, but came back with just her iPhone on the second day since she had more questions. Norman thought the first class was helpful; she has owned both devices for two years and didn’t even realize what some of the apps or features on the device were. “It’s great that they can put this on and offer help to people because, otherwise, unless you have your grandkids show you how to work it — forget it,” she laughed. Since most smartphones are universal in function and since there is so much that can be done with them, Norman knows she still has much to learn about them and their capabilities. Her biggest challenge is finding the best source of knowledge about how to use her phone. Specifically, Norman wants to learn about the security and privacy features on her iPhone, while she also wants to know more about the apps on the phone. She believes until she is shown, she won’t know what to do or how to

Rosabelle Holzer learns about some of the features on her iPad, such as the front-facing camera. Photo by Jason G. Antonio use it. It’s great that the library offers these programs, she added, especially since many people like her are also moving from a Windows 10 laptop to a Google Chromebook. Learning how to use computers and tablets was what drew Doreen Pigeon to the course. She brought her tablet since she received it recently and didn’t know how to operate it too well. She bought the device since her kids and grandchildren pressured her to buy one to stay in touch. Pigeon has never owned an iPhone or iPad before, although she owns a simple cellphone that she keeps in the car for travelling. The only device she owned previously was an early computer that was too complicated to understand. She bought a new one afterward and never liked that, even though her daughter encouraged her to use it for something to do. “Yeah, I do (need it), for entertainment, if nothing else,” she added. Anyone interested in getting started on a new tablet or phone can schedule a meeting at the Moose Jaw Public Library with one of its technicians by calling 306-6922787. Or, you can visit the information desk to book the appointment.

60th anniversary of nursing class brings up history Larissa Kurz

The General Hospital School of Nursing and the Providence Hospital School of Nursing collectively trained 1,716 nurses while they were open. One class, who trained at the Regina College before coming to work in Moose Jaw, returned to the city this week to celebrate the 60th anniversary of their graduation. The class of September 1959 arrived on Aug. 20 from all over Canada, including as far as Calgary and B.C. They began their training with 29 classmates, and eleven made to the reunion this year. They enjoyed a week of catching up before meeting at the Moose Jaw Museum and Art The nursing class of September 1959, at their 60th reunion. Gallery for a group photo in front of a new display of nursing memorabilia, some of which they themselves donated. The display features many interesting pieces, such as graduation pins from as far back as 1907 and a nursing student’s uniform from the1929 to 1940 era. A display case featuring dolls dressed in uniform show the evolution of nursing uniforms from 1906 to 1970. The cabinet was previously featured in the Moose Jaw Union Hospital until it’s closure in 2015. Now, it makes its home in the MJMAG. These former nurses took four months of training in the Centralized Lecture Program at the Regina College, which was introduced in 1953, and also worked their training shifts at the same time — which paid $6 per month in the first year of the program, $8 per month in the second, and $10 per month in the third. This particular class of nurses have kept in touch, reuniting for reunions very regularly over the years following their graduation. They were present at the cabinet’s unveiling The new nursing display at the MJMAG features memorabilia from the many years Moose Jaw was home to two nursing train- in 1997, and are pleased to see it once again displayed as a part of Moose Jaw’s history. ing hospitals.

New wind plant breaks ground as largest wind project in Saskatchewan Larissa Kurz

Following a successful bid to SaskPower for a 25-year contract announced last year, Potentia Renewables has put the first shovel in the dirt on the site of the new wind power plant to be built just outside of Assiniboia. The Golden South Wind Energy Facility is expected to be completed by 2020, taking up 34,000 acres of leased land with the 50 turbines and new substation. The plant is expected to produce 200 megawatt hours of power annually, which is enough power to support approximately

90,000 homes. All of the power generated will be fed directly onto the main grid for the province, purchased at a rate that is the lowest in North America. Construction will begin within the next two weeks, employing around 250 personnel during the build. Once finished, the project will require between 10 and 12 permanent employees to operate. Mike Marsh, CEO of SaskPower, is happy to see the partnership with Potentia Renewables move forward. “We’re very happy to see a facility like this to come in, and this is the first of probably several over the next decade,” said Marsh. SaskPower will be purchasing the wind energy as it is produced on a 25-year contract, at a rate of 3 cents per kilowatt hour — comparable to coal produced energy, which averages about 5 cents per kilowatt hour. “We can build wind in sufficient quantities at a low price now, so wind is actually the easiest and the cheapest [renewable resource],” said Marsh. “We want to take advantage of the competitive market and try to get as much wind energy as we can in the next decade.” SaskPower’s venture into wind power is part of the Prairie Resilience initiative set

Introduce yourself to the Library archives with public sessions Larissa Kurz The Moose Jaw Public Library is looking to trot out the numerous resources housed in its archives — resources that some people may not even know are there. The first session was held on Aug. 20, titled Animals in the Archives. The evening session focused on the Wild Animal Park and its history. The second session, titled Introduction to Archives and Archival Research, is set to follow on Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. and will be a run-through of the many different resources in the archives and how to use them. It’s possible that when people think about the archive’s resources, they think only of newspaper clippings and old photographs, and it is true that they have an extensive catalogue of both. The Library has microfilm of local newspapers dating back to the 1800s, and a sizeable collection of actual paper clippings and photos, but there is also more than that. Things such as old yearbooks from all of the schools in the city, maps, blueprints for familiar buildings, city directories, and historical records from businesses and organizations are all available to the public through the archives. Research technician and archive expert Stephanie Jeanes will be on hand at the session to talk about how the archives work and answer questions, and she will have all of the items that the archives has on the topic out for people to look through. Jeanes is choosing the session topics based on what sounds of most interest to the community, which is why there are two more sessions already planned. On Oct. 17 at 2:30 p.m., the session will

Due to federal regulations, SaskPower must retire two coal-fired stations by 2024, and Marsh indicated that wind energy will supplant that gap in production. Golden South is the largest wind power plant contracted with SaskPower in the province, joining the Blue Hill Wind Energy Project being developed by Algonquin Power Co. south of Herbert.

be entirely about the military history of the area, focusing on Moose Jaw military personnel and battalions in World War II. On Nov. 16 at 2:30 p.m., session attendees will take a look at Moose Jaw’s architecture and the history of the oldest buildings in the city. These sessions are a chance to be familiarized with the archives in a more public setting, and learn about the history of popular local topics. Jeanes usually sees people utilizing the archives for genealogical research, about a relative’s life, or to track down mention of family members in past documents. She hopes that by hosting public information sessions, people will know more about what the archives can offer them. Aside from the free sessions that are scheduled, anyone can access the Library Archives by calling the front desk and making an appointment to visit. It often helps to let the technicians know what you’re looking for as well, as they can pull resources out for you or direct your search. And for those just looking for some lowkey exploration of history, the archives sessions are the place to stop in.

“We can say we have the largest wind farm in the province,” said Himbeault. “We’re very excited and I’m very pleased that Potentia just kept bidding on this project, and that SaskPower rewarded them for their efforts.” SaskPower is expected to begin taking bids on another utility-scale wind project sometime this year. Upon completion of both wind plant projects already in motion, wind energy will comprise of about 4.5 per cent of SaskPower’s total energy capacity.

Conversation with American sheds light on confusing politics south of the border

by Ron Walter

There is an adage: Don’t judge people until you walk a mile in their shoes. Many of us have judged Americans for electing the mercurial president currently holding office. A conversation with a Seattle resident visiting Moose Jaw shed light on why Americans supported this man for president. The American I spoke to was hesitant to reveal his citizenship as he realized his fellow citizens aren’t that popular elsewhere in the world. Our conversation started about Boeing, one of the world’s top two commercial aircraft makers, located in

Seattle. Boeing faces difficulties with customers and aviation authorities over the safety issues on the Max 737 planes. The Seattle man, also called Ron, said the Boeing leadership put profit ahead of safety after the head office moved to Chicago and executives became influenced by New York bankers. “It was just greed,” he said. My immediate thought: here is a socialist from the Democratic state of Washington. Ron is a semi-retired budget consultant to school boards, a job that makes him wince because “there is never enough money.” The school system he outlined appears nearly dysfunctional. Students who need to be in special education classes require parental approval. To get parental approval the schools “bribe” parents with expensive bus service. Students can and do disrupt the classroom, hindering the opportunity to learn as in Canada. Classroom aides to prevent disruption reduce funds for teaching. No traditional discipline is allowed. Not even suspension from school is allowed.

Single mothers on welfare assistance can only increase their payments by having another child. Without a father role model, many of these youngsters grow up being disruptive in school. Charter schools which are essentially private schools where traditional discipline is allowed are popular. Their students have better achievement rates. “But they are taking the cream of the crop.” The school system wasn’t his only complaint. Finding stores and trades that service the things they sell is almost impossible. Yet the big chains, Sears, K-Mart, Nordstrom grew large from their service to customers. Often, he needs to drive 30 or 40 miles to buy what he needs. Instead he orders online from Amazon, avoiding the risks of driving with the perks of free delivery, quick service and usually lower prices. Amazon, he says, is putting small businesses out of business. Some see the solution to these American concerns is taxing the big corporations heavily, but he believes higher taxes will drive big business from America to lower taxed places. He isn’t the only American who has seen his country’s greatness diminish over the years and wishes to restore life to what it once was. The short conversation offered insights into why many Americans support the current president. Not once during the conversation did we mention names of politicians.

Farm Credit Canada turned in $656.7 million net income last year By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS Declining farm incomes and higher input cost loans appear to have increased provisions for loan losses at Farm Credit Canada (FCC). Billing itself as Canada’s largest provider of capital to agriculture, FCC turned in the 26th consecutive year of growth. But the Crown Corporation almost tripled loan loss provisions last year to $103.3 million from $30.9 million. One customer’s losses accounted for the largest portion of the increased loan loss provision. Impaired loans are expected to be $123 million for the current fiscal year ended March 31, 2020. The FCC annual report showed credit impaired loans are still an acceptable 0.5 per cent of the $36.5 billion loan portfolio. Profit for the Crown fell 6.1 per cent to $656.7 million, mainly from the increased loan losses. Interest income was $1,151 billion, up from $1,072 billion. Administration expenses declined seven

per cent to $426.3 million from $456.8 million. FCC’s market share of agriculture related loans slipped to 29.1 per cent from 29.8 per cent. The chartered banks loan market share was up 0.4 per cent to 35.5 per cent while credit unions’ share decreased by 0.1 per cent to 15.6 per cent FCC loans increased 4.5 per cent to $36.017 billion during the year with more than 20,000 customers across Canada. Every sector experienced an increase in loans led by oilseeds and grains – up $714 million to $11.06 billion — and agri-business, which increased $332 million to $3.64 billion. Ontario leads FCC loans with $10.75 billion followed by the West at $10.3 billion, Quebec at $4.7 billion and the Atlantic region at $1.25 billion. During the year FCC gave $4.3 million to communities in initiatives and raised over 9.5 million meals in the campaign against hunger. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Private language school hopes to be ready by September Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

There is still some painting to do and carpet to install, but a private educational institution is hoping to be ready to welcome students for the first day of school. A & L Royal Academy is a private language school that caters to international students and is focused on English as a second language (ESL). The private institution is located at 52 High Street West in the former RBC branch. When the Moose Jaw Express visited on Aug. 22, contractors were still painting. Green masking tape and plastic sheets covered walls, windows and door frames, while several rooms had boxes of ceiling tiles waiting to be installed. The goal is to be open by Sept. 3. “The English-as-a-second language business worldwide is absolutely huge,” explained school principal Jeff Mathieson. There are many schools in foreign countries, but within the past 15 years, students have wanted to study abroad, he continued. So private language schools have opened in many Western countries, but no such institution has opened in Saskatchewan. Places such as the Newcomer Welcome Centre or Saskatchewan Polytechnic work with immigrants and refugees and teach them English. However, the government provides indirect funding to support those groups, Mathieson pointed out. A & L Royal Academy is not in competition with either organization and is completely sponsored and funded through tuition. “The students coming here are recruited by our recruiters,” he said. “We are bringing in our own students. It adds another economic benefit to Moose Jaw and Saskatchewan … Some of our grads may stay in Canada to advance their education. It’s a win-win for everybody.” If students study full-time in Moose Jaw for a year, they could each pump up to $30,000 into the economy through areas such as housing, food, transportation and entertainment. Toronto businessman Wing Lam owns the academy, explained Mathieson. Lam moved to Canada from China 30 years

ago for school and struggled because there were then no language schools. He was put in a class and expected to survive; he did and went on to start an immigrant-focused company. Lam entered the education field because he wanted to offer students something better than his own experiences, while he wanted to help immigrants with their concerns. He has placed international students in schools across Canada for the last few years, including at Sask. Polytechnic. “Saskatchewan is a great place for investment …” Mathieson said. “So he chose Moose Jaw. He’s been here a few times. He fell in love with the city.” Mathieson has more than 30 years of experience in education, including 10 years of experience teaching overseas. As a teacher, he enjoys seeing the progress students make, while he also likes learning about other cultures. “This (position) was right up my alley,” he chuckled. The academy will offer four three-month semesters in a year; there are no summers off. Fifteen students will be recruited for each semester, with 64 students expected to attend after one year. The goal is to have 175 students attend the academy and live in Moose Jaw after two years. The first 12 to 18 months will be all Chinese students, but the goal is to have 50 per cent of all students attending from other countries. “I look forward to the growth of the school,” Mathieson said. “We will start small, but to reach 175 students, that would be a great accomplishment. I look forward to it becoming a fixture in Moose Jaw.” A & L Royal Academy is still looking for homestay families to host students. This would give students extra practice with speaking English. The academy is also looking for books for the library and possibly a ping-pong table. Anyone interested in supporting the school can call Jeff Mathieson at 306-807-8406 or email at

Megan Nash pairs with German band Scotch & Water for Canadian tour Larissa Kurz

Megan Nash will be in Moose Jaw for the second last show of her most recent tour with Bears in Hazenmore, featuring special guests Scotch & Water — who have travelled all the way from Hamburg, Germany to join Nash on their first Canadian tour. Comprised of Samira Christmann, vocals, Hansjakob Wedemeyer, guitar, Max Quentmeier, bass, Lasse Weinbrandt, drums, Scotch & Water boasts a fluid indie sound that floats around to include almost-pop, rock, and folk-inspired melodies. It’s no surprise that they’ve connected with Nash, whose music also delves into a sweet, melancholic feeling that invokes a certain warm nostalgia at times. Scotch & Water also interestingly uses the term “creative collective” to describe themselves, because alongside their four figurehead musicians is a fifth member: Dennis Bajer, who works off the stage mixing the show and writing music. “I think we are very versatile, which I like a lot,” said Christmann, in an email with Moose Jaw Today. “We all have very different backgrounds – Lasse and Max have a jazz background, Hans is into folk and indie mostly, just like Dennis, I also like a lot of foreign music – it’s a good and creative mixture.”

“Our music is an output of all the musical influences that all of us entail. The result is a mixture that even surprises ourselves sometimes,” said Wedemeyer. Their debut EP, Never Enough, Always Too Much, released on Aug. 16 and the band feels it represents their collective musical interests as a group. It’s tough to go through the recording process – there are five people having an opinion and we try to find compromises without letting the songs suffer from this,” said Weinbrandt. “Our EP is very versatile. . . It shows us in different facets.” The band met Nash on her trip through

Germany in 2018, where she played alongside Scotch & Water and Stefan from The Green Apple Seas, and the musicians made fast friends. With a Germany tour under their belts, the group decided that a Canadian tour with Nash seemed appropriate. They began in Hazelet, SK on Aug. 24, and are hitting venues in Alberta and B.C. before returning to Saskatchewan. “We want to present our music and show people how we feel about this or that. To connect with people during a concert is just so intensive – I don’t want to miss that,” said Quentmeier. “We want to have fun on stage but also take our mu-

sic seriously.” The tour is the band’s first venture into international waters, and aside from excitement to play new venues and crowds, there were a few other parts of Canada they were excited to experience — including Tim Hortons, orca sightings in Victoria, and doing some grocery shopping. “Because that’s how you get to know a country!” explained Weinbrandt. Scotch & Water will be joining Megan Nash on stage at the Cultural Centre on Sept. 7, and they are looking forward to seeing the crowd experience their new music. “It is always a great thing when you can see that the audience is totally into the songs and really feels them,” said Wedemeyer. “It’s special when something that was created by a handful of persons keeps growing and reaches more and more listeners who are feeling this particular energy.” Scotch & Water’s EP is available for order through Devil Duck Records’ website[1] , and their single “Moving On” is available to stream on Spotify[2] . Tickets for Scotch & Water are still available either on the Cultural Centre’s website, or through the box office in person or by calling (306) 693-4700.

Shareholder thanks Saskatchewan taxpayers for corporate incentive As a shareholder of Gibson Energy I want to thank Premier Scott Moe, his government and Saskatchewan taxpayers for the tax incentive recently announced for the Moose Jaw Refinery expansion. The royalty tax credit, worth about $3 million over three years on this $20 million expansion will help to boost profits and return on investment in Gibson’s plant. Notably, the expansion to refine 22,000 barrels of oil a day from 17,000 barrels will not emit any more greenhouse gas emissions. In fact, the greenhouse gas emissions per barrel will be cut by 20 per cent to 25 per cent. No new jobs were created by the expansion which was completed June 29. Government representatives at the Oil and Gas Processing Investment Incentive announcement patted themselves on the back for this first successful applicant to the program and its impact on building a strong investment climate in Saskatchewan. The program was announced last fall to encourage investment in processing oil and gas in this province. Some voters could be left with the impression this royalty tax credit gave Gibson reason to expand now. Nothing could be further from the truth.

While the Moose Jaw Refinery expansion has been on the burner for at least 10 years, having been postponed about eight years ago over excessive costs, the current expansion has been in the planning for almost two years. The expansion is part of a company restructuring to improve profitability. Sale of the trucking division is part of the restructuring. The point here is that the $3 million loss in royalties was unnecessary to ensure the refinery expanded. The $3 million is like a gift from Saskatchewan taxpayers. Gibson management merely followed the rules to apply for and received the available credit. In many cases these kinds of corporate subsidies are a gift to the company and shareholders. They really can only be justified on the basis that every province has incentives to retain and attract business investment. When the premiers talk about reducing trade barriers — talk that never seems to accomplish much — they never talk about reducing subsidies to attract investment to their respective provinces. That discussion won’t happen simply because politicians want a carrot to dangle in front of investors. Some investments like the Moose Jaw refinery don’t

need the subsidy, making the incentive subsidy a waste of taxpayers’ money. Those investments that need the subsidies to start up are often marginal and unsuccessful – another waste of taxpayers’ money. Saskatchewan’s Oil and Gas Processing Investment Incentive was probably established to land a bigger fish, explaining its $75 million cap on a $500 million investment. The bigger fish would be the 40,000 barrel per day refinery proposed for Stoughton in 2018 by Quantum Energy of Arizona. Quantum also announced five other proposed refineries – two in Montana and three in North Dakota. That would be a catch to crow about, but taxpayers will never know if the incentive was necessary.

LB Autobody receives certification to work on high-tech vehicles Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

With the automotive industry producing more technologically advanced vehicles, Moose Jaw’s LB Beattie Autobody is keeping up with the changes by ensuring it has the right certifications to fix these machines. The autobody shop recently received official certification from Certified Collision Care, a non-profit consumer advocacy organization that promotes the use of right tools, equipment, training and buildings necessary to repair vehicles according to the manufacturers’ specifications. LB Autobody is now capable of the most advanced repair possible and is part of the most efficient collision repair network in the world. Besides Certified Collision Care, the business is also certified by Fiat Chrysler, Nissan Canada, and Kia. “I’m totally excited about it,” owner Terry Beattie told the Moose Jaw Express. “It’s great. Our people are empowered. We’ve put them through a lot of training. We have a good crew here and we’re totally embracing it.” Having this certification is important in collision repair, especially since Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) is developing a plan to have all autobody shops certified so they can work on today’s vehicles, Beattie said. His team would not be able to make repairs to certain vehicles without this designation. Manufacturers have also been pushing to ensure their vehicles are repaired properly, especially since major lawsuits have happened in the United States over vehicles that were not fixed well. The whole industry is receiving an overhaul, he continued. The objective is to ensure customers’ vehicles are safe when being put back on the road and to ensure auto-

How much control do you have over your own health care? by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor I pretty much hated school. From day 1 of kindergarten (yes, I remember it) until the end of my professional education, there was nothing about school that I liked. It goes to wonder then, that if I hated it so much, why did I voluntarily continue to go for so many years after high school? Part of my personality includes not being able to tolerate very well being told what to do. I figured the longer I went to school, the better my chances were to be able to get a job where there was more freedom. Another part of school I didn’t like very much was anything to do with research. While I understood the importance of research, I wanted very little to do with it because of all the statistics involved in research. I realized recently what else I didn’t like about research, and it comes down to the whole “control”

Antonio body shops are confident in the work. “I’ve always liked change,” Beattie said. “It’s the new normal.” To become certified, LB Beattie Autobody passed a rigorous certification process to help ensure a proper and safe repair of a new generation of vehicles, according to a news release. Fewer than five per cent of body shops across Canada can meet the stringent requirements to become officially certified and recognized. The certified network is composed of best-in-class collision repair businesses that have met or exceeded the strict requirements of the certification program.

issue that I have. Too much research appears to be very self-serving, especially in the area of health research. The researchers take full control over the studies and as such results are often too biased in favor of what the research designers are often wanting to see. The public as research subjects, and even as patients, have historically had little control over the direction of their healthcare. But hopefully that is changing. There is some new terminology in health care and research in Canada that shows change may be on the horizon. Patient Oriented Research, Patient Engagement, Patient-Centred Outcome Research and Community-Action Research is the direction that some Canadian health care policy advisors and policy makers are looking to take. This contrasts the traditional doctor-centred and researcher-centred model of health care policy and delivery. The June 2019 Report from the Canadian Pain Task Force stresses the importance of patient engagement and that people living with chronic pain be equal partners in pain research and management.

pain has morphed into a legitimate disease state that affects 20 percent of Canadians. Lack of patient involvement and control may have contributed to the current problems with chronic pain management and possibly have contributed to the opioid epidemic that exists today. A recent review of the effects of patient engagement reveal an improved patient’s experience of care, better patient outcomes and potential health care cost savings. Whether it is chronic pain, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, arthritis or any other affliction, an engaged patient results in a better-informed patient. Health care teams should include the patient at the forefront.

The certification criteria are based on requirements from auto manufacturers, the news release said. These are important to ensure the vehicle is fit, finished, durable and safe following an accident. Newer vehicles are using lightweight, high-strength materials and advanced technology, which means a proper repair based on manufacturer specifications is important. This ensures passengers are safe and the vehicle performs properly. Previously, LB Autobody received its training through the apprenticeship and trade commission, or the best practices laid out by SGI and SaskPolytechnic. It took three years for Beattie to acquire this certification. He pointed out “the writing has been on the wall for a long time” that major changes were coming in the industry. However, he did not know what those changes would look like. He does know SGI will make an announcement in September about changes for autobody shops. “I’m really happy and proud to say that whatever (SGI comes) out with, we’re going to be in that tier 1 … at the top,” he added. Beattie thought it was humbling to be considered one of the best autobody shops in the world and to be part of an exclusive worldwide network. He noted LB Beattie Autobody is one of the few to receive this designation since it has been working to attain it for so long. Yet, most other autobody shops will have to do the same if they want to continue fixing vehicles. “This industry has never had this much of an overhaul,” he added. “It’s exciting times right now. It’s nice, it’s new, it’s fresh.”

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Canines and cyclists don’t belong in Crescent Park Dogs are my favourite pet. That’s a fact. That being said, I believe that dogs have their place and that place is at home or in Joyce Walter a dog park or For Moose Jaw Express a vacant field where they can run and bark and carry on in such a manner as not to bother folks who might not be in love with Lassie or The Littlest Hobo. I realize dogs play a very important role in modern households and I have no argument when Fido is treated as well as or better than some human members of the family. It is none of my business and I will stay out of the dog houses of the nation. On the other hand, I have yet to be convinced that dogs enjoy festivals and music concerts or being on leashes in huge crowds or walking on hot pavement or sidewalks. Dogs of my experience seem to love resting in the shade or running through a water sprinkler or swimming in the pond — or chasing sticks or catching frisbees, again in a field or a backyard away from the confusing crowds. And away from strange dogs that might or might not be barking and sniffing in appreciation. Are those bared teeth and growls really signs of goodwill and the equivalent of a human handshake? All of this preamble brings me to the notice of motion that a city councillor made at a recent council meeting. This councillor wants the signs in Crescent Park to come down — the signs that prohibit dogs and bicycles in the city’s downtown jewel of greenery, flowers, shrubs, cenotaph, walkways, concerts, art functions, festivals and other events designed for human pleasure. He says walking and cycling provide community benefits. Yes, walking does, and so does cycling, but not when the cyclists put walkers in jeopardy. And that already happens in Crescent Park as seniors meander on the walkways and enjoy going to the li-

brary and art museum or to concerts. They must be conscious of instances of illegal cyclists and be nimble enough to get away from collisions. cycling is a healthy pastime, and bravo to all cyclists who get their exercise on bike paths designed especially for them. Leashed dog walking is also a healthy exercise, but it is prohibited by bylaw in school yards, playgrounds and public parks, possibly because of the doggie behaviours that arise in such environs, not to mention the dog fights plus the barking directed at the ducks that live in Crescent Park. At the risk of sounding like a curmudgeon, I reiterate that I love dogs and if Sophia, Sam, Levi, Cleveland or Bentley want to visit us, they are most welcome. But unfamiliar dogs, even on leashes, are just a bit uncertain. One such dog took a bite out of my nephew’s rear end a few years ago and nephew and Housemate spent the evening at the hospital awaiting examination of the bite and resultant shots. And on a recent holiday, as I sat on a ledge with dozens of other people, I was cuddled on both sides by dog owners and their leashed dogs — dogs who took an instant dislike to each other and snarled and growled and strained at their leashes to get in a nip or two. My ice cream was also a subject of interest. The owners were not the least bit concerned at my discomfort and simply told their pets to “quit barking.” Neither canine listened. So, please city council, keep dogs, leashed or otherwise, and cyclists out of Crescent Park. Taxpayers have paid for dog parks and cycling paths for a reason. Enjoy them to the fullest. Ditto for the rest of us in Crescent Park.

Canadian railways moved record volumes of grain this crop year By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS Both of Canada’s railways posted record amounts of grain movement for the crop year ended July 31carrying a combined 54 million tonnes to market CP Rail, serving the southern part of the grain belt, moved 26.8 million tonnes of grain and grain products during the 12 months. That was a 2.8 per cent increase over 2017 CP officials attribute the increased haul to “tight co-ordination across the supply chain” that improved efficiency even during the difficult winter months. The increase was aided by the gradual rollout of the 8,500-foot High Efficiency Product train model that entails only hopper cars, and by nearly 1,500 new high capacity hopper cars. That high capacity hopper car fleet will increase to 1,900 by the end of this year. CNR, the railway serving mostly the northern half off the grain belt, carried a record 27.4 million tonnes of bulk grain during the period, for an increase of eight per cent. The movements beat the previous record in 2016-17 of 26.3 million tonnes. CN attributed the increased movement to the $7.4 billion long-term investment to improve the railway.

Moose Jaw identified as community at high flood risk, said WSA Larissa Kurz A number of Saskatchewan communities have been flagged for their high risk of potential flood damage, as part of a province-wide flood mapping project being funded by the Government of Saskatchewan and the National Disaster Mitigation Program. The Water Security Agency (WSA) is administering the flood-mapping, in an effort to improve the resiliency of these 20 high-risk communities in the face of climate change. Identifying areas that could see potential flooding caused by overflow from nearby rivers or lakes allows communities to be better prepared for such an event, to help mitigate the damage done by such an unpredictable natural disaster.

Local construction work increases 26 perBy Ron cent over last year Walter - For Moose Jaw Express Construction in Moose Jaw had climbed 26 per cent ahead of last season by the end of July. Building permit values from city hall show year-todate values of $12.9 million, up from $10.2 million last season. The increase has been driven by single family housing with 20 houses worth $7.2 million compared with 14 units valued at $4.6 million in the previous period. July permits of $1.9 million increased by $133,000 over last July. The main non-residential permit was $210,000 for an indoor recreational building at 108 Main Street North A condominium on Bradley Street on South Hill is worth $341,000 while an apartment on Maplewood Drive in West Park subdivision is valued at $180,000. Three single family dwellings started are worth $809,000 compared with three last July worth $1.2 million. Six garages averaged $22,600 in value. Ron Walter can be reached at

Moose Jaw has been identified as a high-risk community, alongside cities such as Regina, Saskatoon, Weyburn, Melfort, and Yorkton. Smaller towns, such as Cudworth, Foam Lake, Eastend, Maple Creek, Wadena, Air Ronge, Tisdale, Borden, and more are also on the list. The funding for the flood mapping project totals $1 million and gives the 20 highrisk communities access to flood maps and hydraulic models for their area at no cost, to help them prepare for potential future flooding. Flood mapping is one of the measures of resilience set forward by the Government of Saskatchewan in their Prairie Resilience climate change strategy.

Honouring the leadership of a Moose Javian 75 years later Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw armoury building would likely not be named after David Currie if it weren’t for the former Moose Javian’s heroic exploits during the Second World War. Seventy-five years ago on Aug. 20, 1944, Maj. David Currie won the Victoria Cross — the highest military medal in the British Empire — for leading his troops into battle against overwhelming odds. Currie was in command of a small mixed force of Canadian tanks, infantry and self-propelled anti-tank guns on Aug. 18, 1944 when he was ordered to cut off one of the main routes the German army was using to escape from the Falaise Pocket in France. According to Currie’s Victoria Cross citation, the Canadian force was held up by strong enemy resistance in the village of St. Lambert-sur-Dives, with Germany artillery knocking out two Canadian tanks. Currie entered the village on foot and rescued the tank crews under heavy mortar fire while also checking out enemy defences. The next morning, Currie led an attack

By noon, he had seized and consolidated a position halfway inside the village. During the next 36 hours, the Germans hurled one counterattack after another against the Canadian defences, but Currie had skillfully organized his defensive position and repulsed the attacks. At one point, Currie single-handedly knocked out a massive German Tiger tank, a most feared machine on the battlefield. At dusk on Aug. 20, the Germans launched one final assault on the Canadian positions but were routed. Seven enemy tanks, 12 heavy artillery guns and 40 vehicles were destroyed; 300 Germans were killed, 500 wounded and 2,100 captured. Currie then captured the rest of the village and closed the escape route for the remnants of two German armies. By sealing the exit, Currie brought the Battle of Normandy to an end after three months of fighting. “Throughout three days and nights of fierce fighting, Major Currie’s gallant conduct and contempt for danger set a magnificent example to all ranks of the force under his command,” his citation added.

Moose Jaw armoury The Saskatchewan Dragoons’ Sgt. Steve Cox, a media spokesman at the Lt.-Col. D.V. Currie VC Armoury, thought it was neat how Currie’s exploits were being remembered 75 years later. “It’s incredible,” Cox said, especially since Currie had a smaller force. “He took on damn near two squadrons of Germans. The thought that he could organize all that chaos and hold onto that town is (also) incredible. It shows true calmness in all that action and true leadership. “Every member of the Saskatchewan Dragoons is proud to have his name on the building.” The Dragoons did not have any event planned on Aug. 20 to commemorate Currie’s Victoria Cross accomplishment. However, when the unit gets back together on Sept. 4 after the summer break, the commanding officer will likely talk about how Currie won the medal 75 years ago. Currie was born on July 8, 1912 in Sutherland, Saskatoon — now a neighbourhood, but considered a separate community back then — and was the son of a Canadian Pacific Railway engineer. His family moved to Moose Jaw in 1913, where he completed high school.

A picture of Maj. David Currie, a replica of his Victoria Cross and an explanation of why he won the medal are in a frame in the Sergeants’ and Officers’ Mess room upstairs at the armoury. Photo by Jason G. Antonio The armoury building was named in Currie’s honour in 1986 during a dedication ceremony. He died on June 20, 1986. Upstairs in the Sergeants’ and Officers’ Mess Room, a frame hangs on the wall honouring three soldiers — including Currie —from the First and Second World wars who won the Victoria Cross. Not only does the frame boost morale, Cox said, but it also shows officers the potential of what can be done on the battlefield. “Training, when applied correctly, can save the day,” he added. “Although we’re very far from a world war, it shows good leadership qualities, combined with knowledge and training, can turn any situation in your favour.”

Seniors the focus of WDM’s September programs Moose Jaw Express Staff

Seniors are the focus of the Western Development Museum’s next two programs in September. The first program is a new mini-event called Grandparents’ Day, which occurs on Sunday, Sept. 8. Visitors can pick up a special activity booklet to complete with their family as they tour the museum. They can collect stories and photos that fill them with nostalgia. This is a great way for visitors to compare and contrast what life was like in an earlier time with someone who lived during that time. Grandparents’ Day takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and regular admission applies. The second program is the museum’s annual Seniors’ Week Tea on Saturday, Sept. 28 starting at 2 p.m., which kicks off Seniors’ Week in Saskatchewan. This event includes an informal presentation featuring hands-on artifacts around several Saskatchewan themes. Reminisce with a program featuring photos and artifacts and take a look back at leisure time, school, transportation, farming and more. Light refreshments will be provided. You can also learn more about the museum’s new monthly WDM Coffee Club. Regular admission applies to get into the museum, but it will cost $5 per person if visitors only want to attend the tea.

Firefighters association receives retroactive 15.25-per-cent increase in pay, pension Moose Jaw Express Staff

An interest arbitration award was recently awarded to the Moose Jaw Firefighters Association, but it will likely return to the bargaining table soon since the award technically expired in 2018. The City of Moose Jaw and the association were without a collective agreement since Dec. 31, 2014, and during collective bargaining, the parties reached an impasse and referred the matter to arbitration, according to a City of Moose Jaw news release. Arbitration hearings were held in Moose Jaw from May 29 to 31, 2018, with Robson Garden chairing the meeting. On April 26, 2019, Garden awarded the firefighters association retroactive increases for the years to 2015 to

2018 totalling 14.75 per cent in wages and 0.5 per cent in pension contributions. The allocations are as follows: • Jan. 1, 2015: two per cent • July 1, 2015: 1.75 per cent • Jan. 1, 2016: two per cent • July 1, 2016: 2.5 per cent • Jan. 1, 2017: 2.5 per cent • Jan. 1, 2018: three per cent As Fire Chief Rod Montgomery told city council during its recent meeting, total retroactive back pay was $1,841,811.05, while pension retroactive back pay was $135,345.75. This means a first-class firefighter now

makes $99,252, up from $85,764 five years ago. Included in the 15.25 per cent was a further imposed 1.5-per-cent “out of line” adjustment to wages and pension that took effect on April 26, 2019, said the news release. This would address the perceived disparity of the fire association in increases awarded following the 2014 interest arbitration. The arbitration award is binding. The municipality and the association signed the collective agreement on June 26. Since the award was effective through Dec. 31, 2018, the two sides are without a current contract and anticipate negotiations to begin later this year.

Elks hands out $3,000 in scholarships to high school grads Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Five Moose Jaw high school graduates have received financial support from the Elks Lodge No. 7 that will go toward their future education or career aspirations. The 106-year-old Moose Jaw Elks organization provided the scholarships to the students during their graduation ceremonies last June, but the organization made the announcement recently about who received the scholarships, along with the prestigious Trudie Temple Scholarship. Josh Reidy from Central Collegiate Institute and Myriam Levesque from Vanier Collegiate Institute each received $750. At A.E. Peacock Collegiate, students Megan McDonald and Kassandra Loucks tied for the highest mark in their graduating class and split the $750 scholarship. Avery Garner from Central Collegiate received the Trudie Temple Scholarship and $750. In total, the Elks handed out $3,000 in scholarships. Due to the success of the Elks’ fundraising this past year, the scholarships were increased to $750 from $500. “We thought (giving out the scholarships) would be a good thing to do to support the youths in the community,” said Harold Claffey, the Elks’ publicity director. “We’ve been doing it for (more than 40 years).” It’s important to give out scholarships since the club likes to be community-minded and enjoys giving students a boost financially, Claffey continued. While a university education is important, Claffey noted the recipients can use the money however they wish: for university, college, or to enter the workforce.

Being able to give more money is encouraging since it

The Moose Jaw Elks give back to the community in many ways, including by participating in the Santa Claus parade and giving out scholarships to high school grads. File photo

shows the Elks’ fundraising efforts have been successful, he said. The group is providing service to the community while also giving back in a meaningful way. For example, the Elks held a variety of events this past year to raise funds. This included catering barbecues, a chili challenge, weekly meat draws from September to June in the Legion lounge, and raffles. The Elks also operated two large concession stands this summer, including one day at ParkArt on July 1 and two days during the air show. Across the three days, the club

sold 1,080 bottles of water, 1,900 hamburgers, and plenty of hot dogs, pop, corn on the cob, and popcorn. Besides scholarships, money raised also supports initiatives at the community, provincial and national level, including the Elks and Royal Purple National Fund for Children, which provides cochlear hearing implants. Last year the Moose Jaw Elks gave out more than $20,000 in donations. “It’s nice to be able to up the scholarships,” Claffey said, “because the amount doesn’t go as far as it used to. Inflation keeps on apace and to be able to increase the scholarships makes it more meaningful and gives a better boost to the students.” The Moose Jaw Elks club is currently thriving and doing well, and while it has many members, it could always use more help, said Claffey. The club regularly donates to community organizations such as Hunger in Moose Jaw and Transition House. It also enters a low-end tree into the Festival of Trees every year so people and businesses don’t have to spend thousands of dollars bidding on it. Residents should join the Elks so they can give back to the community, have something to do, make friends and help with various health projects including children’s hearing initiatives, he added. The club also hosts several sports tournaments every year, including bowling, golf and darts, plus a walkathon for children’s hearing. The public is always welcome to participate.

First aid is for all ages with Moose Jaw EMS course Larissa Kurz

This is the third first aid course for kids offered by the Moose Jaw EMS and the Red Cross, and the largest group of participants yet. Course administrator Braelyn Hofland is on the third session of the First Aid & CPR course aimed for ages 9 to 13, and the interest in the course has been encouraging to see. Organized through the Red Cross, the new course tailored for kids covers all of the important topics regarding first aid: how to identify if someone needs help and whether it is safe to get involved, and what to do in the event of a medical emergency. Hofland, an advanced care paramedic with Moose Jaw Emergency Medical Services and Blasia Cain, a primary care paramedic with Moose Jaw EMS, spoke to a group of ten participants on Aug. 22,

The group went through a full minute of chest compressions and rescue breaths to finish up the course.

fland. “If they’re home alone with their siblings they should know what to do, and having this course will help them be able to manage that a little bit better, and prepare them for that [situation].” Both adults and children should always know what to do in a medical emergency, said Hofland, and she is seeing that this particular age group can be effective at administering CPR despite their smaller stature. “We actually have a mannequin that shows how efficient they’re doing their chest compressions and with this age group, they’re actually able to circulate

the blood with the chest compressions,” said Hofland. The Moose Jaw EMS is planning to continue offering the course every few months, to continue educating the next generation of first responders. Parents are encouraged to keep an eye out for more dates to be announced, and to consider enrolling their kids. “Getting everyone trained in first aid and CPR is always beneficial,” said Hofland. “Don’t be scared of putting your kids in the course and giving them that experience they need to help prepare for those situations.”

testing their knowledge of first response tactics. Topics for the morning included what’s in a first aid kit and how to use it, what to do if someone is in need of help, and what to tell 911 dispatchers when you call with an emergency.

“Don’t be scared of putting your kids in the course and giving them that experience they need to help prepare for those situations.” -Course administrator Braelyn Hofland Hofland and Cain also emphasized the importance of keeping yourself safe when helping with an emergency, from wearing gloves to identifying hazards in a situation that could be harmful. The afternoon focused on recognizing signs of heart attack and stroke, administering CPR and how to handle choking, with some hands on training for the group. Pairs of participants practiced administering CPR and how to use an AED, before touring through an ambulance to wrap things up. Hofland has seen interest increase since the first course offered earlier this year, and she feels this knowledge can only be beneficial, even at this age. “I think it is really important for them to be prepared for anything that could happen, any accidents, injuries,” said Ho-

15 Wing Moose Jaw Cobra Flight Remembers Captain (Retired) Jeff Bird On Wednesday 31 July 2019, four instructor pilots from 2 Canadian Forces Flying Training School (2 CFFTS- nicknamed “The Big 2”) flew to Calgary’s Springbank Airport to present a memorial lithograph to Mount Royal University Aviation to honour the memory of Captain(Capt) (Retired) Jeff Bird. All four pilots were former colleagues and/or students of Capt Bird from his time with Cobra Flight at The Big 2. Capt Jeff Bird was a Royal Canadian Air Force CT-156 Harvard II flight instructor at the Big 2 based in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Prior to joining the Big 2, Capt Bird served as a tactical helicopter pilot with Edmonton’s 408 Squadron and deployed to Afghanistan in 2011. After his tour, Capt Bird was posted to be a flight instructor at the Big 2 in Moose Jaw, where he was able to mentor and inspire hundreds of aspiring RCAF pilots. Capt Bird had recently retired after over a decade of service to the Canadian Armed Forces to take up a civilian flight instructor job at Calgary’s Mount Royal University when he tragically lost his life doing what he loved in February of 2017. The Big 2 pilots presented the memorial lithograph, on behalf of 2 CFFTS and CAE, to Mount Royal University’s (MRU) faculty of Aviation to display in the hangar at the Springbank Airport Campus. It will serve as a daily reminder to MRU staff and students alike of Jeff Bird’s passion for aviation, as well as a reminder of his selfless service and contribution to the Royal Canadian Air Force and to Canada.

Healthcare research project seeking diverse voices Larissa Kurz

Lindsey Boechler, research chair at Sask Polytech in the School of Health Sciences, is reaching out to the multicultural community to give their voices and experiences in the health-care system a platform. In an open forum on Aug. 29, from 7-8 p.m. upstairs at the Public Library, Boechler hopes to hear both concerns and positive experiences from the many diverse cultural perspectives in the community about medical care. “Patients’ opinions, their values and preferences, they do matter. . . and when we can take that into account and include cultural competency or safety in our care, research does show that it will enhance health outcomes,” said Boechler. Boechler plans to use this feedback to formulate a research initiative that will broaden the cultural inclusivity of health care practices. Her goal is to engage different newcomer communities with their own health

care to better fit their cultural and religious needs. “Across Canada we’re getting more and more diverse population, so there’s a lot more people moving here that have different cultural backgrounds,” said Boechler. “I worked here as a paramedic and I know I had a patient and just due to some religious beliefs, the family wanted certain things done in the truck. . . “[so I want to know] how can we account for the diverse religious beliefs or cultural beliefs while we’re providing care as practitioners?” To begin, Boechler needs to know what types of needs aren’t currently being addressed, as well as what health care professionals are doing well. From that feedback, she will conduct a research project to identify what solutions can be found through changes in policy. From there, Boechler will work with the health region to implement changes to health-care practices, policies, and even training curriculums as soon as one to

three years from now. “The end goal of this project is to find a way to provide equity in the care that we provide across all people,” said Boechler.” I know everyone gets really turned off by the word research, but I love this type because it’s being out in the community and seeing the change before your eyes as you’re doing it.” Before she can get started, however, she needs to hear from the community. Alongside the public discussion on Aug. 29, people who are unable to attend but would like to talk can also reach out to Boechler at Lindsey. or at 1 (306) 531-6514. “I’m just trying to gain perspective from the diverse experiences of individuals across our community,” said Boechler. “I feel very privileged that people are willing to come out and tell me their feelings and kind of the barriers they face, and I really hope that I can make a difference with it.”

City Hall Council Notes Get even more local news online at:

Record number of water main breaks could happen this year Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

This year Moose Jaw could experience the highest number of water main breaks it has ever seen, eclipsing the number of breaks it saw two years ago. There were 22 water main breaks during the second quarter of this year, which is the same number experienced at this time last year, according to the engineering department. Meanwhile, there were 58 breaks during the first half of this year, compared to 47 during the same time last year. The update from the department of engineering was part of an overall report presented to city council during its Aug. 12 regular meeting, which looked at all

the activities of every department at city hall during the second quarter of this year. Council voted 6-1 to receive and accept the report. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Since there are 11 more breaks this year compared to last year, this would put the municipality on track to experience the highest number of water main breaks on record, said Swanson. That would be a fair statement, agreed Josh Mickleborough, the director of engineering. According to the City of Moose Jaw’s website, cast iron water mains have av-

eraged 40 to 50 breaks per year in the municipality. There were 116 breaks in 2017 and 97 in 2018. Over the last few years, the municipality has spent about $2 million annually on cast iron repairs. Moose Jaw has received an additional $500,000 in federal funding to address water main breaks, said city manager Jim Puffalt. City hall has kept an eye on how the breaks have been progressing, and while the breaks are problematic, administration is looking at a variety of factors around this issue. For example, city hall monitors the number of breaks per block. During the last four years, that number has been

slowly decreasing. There were about 13 breaks per block, but that number has decreased to eight per block. “It’s a positive trend,” Puffalt said. Administration looks at the failures as a whole, he added. The water infrastructure components are big, but there can also be problems with the sewer mains and the catch basins. City administration believes it will be five to seven years “to turn the corner” before it can stem the flow of these infrastructure failures.

Possible landfill project could generate revenue by capturing methane Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express A possible landfill project could capture methane and turn it into a revenue-generating source for the municipality while also contributing to the federal government’s goal of reducing greenhouse gases. During its Aug. 12 regular meeting, city council voted 5-2 to proceed with a landfill gas evaluation for $50,000. Councillors Brian Swanson and Scott McMann were opposed. Methane — a harmful greenhouse gas — is produced at a landfill from decomposing waste, according to the engineering department. There are several passive wells installed to vent the gas and ensure it does not build up and explode. Landfills account for 20 per cent of all methane releases in Canada. It is possible to capture this gas and convert it into electricity, the report continued. SaskPower would purchase this electricity and distribute into the electrical grid. There is the potential to generate $100,000 to $250,000 based on similar systems in Regina and

Saskatoon. This motion was part of a package of motions — but voted on separately — that dealt with enhancing solid waste management. Council voted unanimously on three other motions to: • Proceed with the design for remediation of a leachate leak on the landfill’s east face for $50,000. The engineering department will have an analysis completed to determine the scope and recommend repair methods. City administration does not believe the leak has migrated, but is concerned it could happen • Purchase 10 portable wind fences for litter control for $90,000. There are already six such fences to capture windblown litter and prevent it from leaving the site. The fences can be used elsewhere if necessary • Install one additional groundwater monitoring well for $17,500. There are 15 active monitoring wells already in and around the landfill that monitor for the migration of heavy metals and other hazardous materials, plus the metals’ proximity to, and potential to pollute, existing water systems. All four motions will be funded from the solid waste reserve. The total cost for all four projects is $207,500. Background Five budget enhancements specific to the solid waste utility were brought forward during the 2019 budget discussions, with the city manager supportive of four of them, explained Josh Mickleborough, director of engineering. However, during discussions council eliminated $40 million in capital spending across the

board, which resulted in these enhancements being missed and excluded from the capital programs. What’s important to note is the three main projects are regulatory requirements and are not optional, he added. Therefore they had to be brought back for approval. Council discussion There is no final date for when these three enhancements need to be made, but city administration is looking at a followup inspection, said Mickleborough. These items can then be “escalated from there” once the followup happens. The provincial regulator wants to see compliance more than anything. These items were lost in the shuffle during the budget discussions, Mickleborough told Swanson. City administration realized more than a month ago that the three enhancements were not approved after it attempted to move on them. “It happens sometimes,” said city manager Jim Puffalt. “It was inadvertent. When we found the error, we wanted to get it back in front of council. … We obviously made a mistake. We’re not going to go out and buy something without approval from council.” The proposed methane project is not a requirement but simply an add-on, said Swanson. While it could generate revenue, he thought too much money would be spent attempting to capture this gas to convert it into electricity. Swanson could live with the other three motions since they are regulatory requirements but thought council should let Regina and Saskatoon pursue this methane-capture initiative and study how that goes before leaping into this without knowing the cost.

City Hall Council Notes No ‘passing of the buck’ in how council handled complaints, says mayor Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

There was no “passing of the buck” in how city council handled concerns from some property owners affected by phase 1 of the cast iron water main replacement project, says the mayor. During its Aug. 12 executive committee meeting, council vote 5-2 on a recommendation to receive and file a report that the administrative review officer submitted after investigating the residents’ complaints. Councillors Brian Swanson and Scott McMann were opposed. The recommendation must be approved during the Aug. 26 regular council meeting to become official. Report recommendation As part of his recommendation, administrative review officer David Foley suggested the seven affected property owners be offered a goodwill discount of 10 per cent on the original bill. This would be a final settlement of the dispute. Without the discount, the affected property owners would have to pay $154,850.75. With the discount, they would pay $139,365.68. However, since council voted to receive and file Foley’s report, his recommendation was essentially voided. Council discussion Several councillors received emails from the affected property owners saying they did not feel adequately consulted during the review, said Coun. Chris Warren. He thought Foley would review every available document

and speak with all affected residents, but that obviously didn’t happen. Mayor Fraser Tolmie agreed that it was a confusing situation, especially with so many conflicting documents to go over. However, the review was supposed to be independent and was to provide a recommendation of who was at fault. He thought this was all a misunderstanding and no one was at fault. The engineering department sent letters to the affected property owners saying council would discuss this on Aug. 12, explained assistant city clerk Tracy Wittke. However, Foley’s report was not released since it was initially discussed behind closed doors. That letter was sent on July 26, said Warren. While the affected residents could have looked for the report on the city’s website, he thought city hall could have announced that it was available on Aug. 9 with the entire council package. This would have enhanced communications instead of forcing property owners to attend the council meeting. “I’m trying to be as diplomatic as possible. There has been quite a bit of breakdown with the property owners,” he added. This issue has been hanging around since 2016, said Swanson. However, he continued, it has revolved around the cost of phase 1 to the affected property owners. Did they know in advance how much they would pay? That’s

an important question and, obviously, Swanson thought the answer was no. Swanson added that he thought council should have handled this instead of “passing the buck” to the ARO. This is a good example of council needing to make a decision and either not having enough information or passing the buck to someone else to decide, agreed Coun. Dawn Luhning. The problem Luhning had — and the conundrum she believed council faced — was the majority of affected property owners in phase 1 paid their invoices. She thought it would be unfair to give a discount to the seven residents when the other 26 had paid. Foley was convinced the municipality provided enough information to the affected property owners about how much they would pay, argued Warren. As for the idea of “passing the buck,” Warren didn’t believe that was true. Just as the province has an investigative ombudsman, the administrative review officer did the same thing for council. “Passing the buck is avoiding the tough decisions. This council has not avoided making tough decisions … ,” said Tolmie, noting the ARO was asked to help clarify the situation. “So I am somewhat disturbed to hear the ‘passing of the buck’ comments, especially when the majority of this council made the decision with regards to (fixing) High Street.”

No compensation for residents affected by cast iron project, council decides Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Seven property owners will likely not be compensated for a dispute with the municipality over its cast iron water main replacement project, bringing an end to a three-year struggle for compensation. The property owners’ complaints stemmed from being billed under phase 1 of the replacement program in 2016. Seven property owners out of 33 in the affected area disputed their invoiced amounts. At the time, city council referred the matter to the administrative review officer (ARO) for investigation and recommendation. This is a different process since normally a citizen would complain to the ARO directly. David Foley, the administrative review officer, provided his final report and recommendations on May 1, 2019 to city council; council later discussed the report behind closed doors during a subsequent executive committee meeting. Foley appeared during council’s Aug. 12 executive committee meeting to discuss his report and answer questions. City council voted 5-2 on a recommendation to receive and file the report. Councillors Brian Swanson and Scott McMann were opposed. The recommendation must be approved during the Aug. 26 regular council meeting to become official. As part of his recommendation, Foley suggested the seven affected property owners be offered a goodwill discount of 10 per cent on the original bill. This would be a full and final settlement of the dispute. Without the discount, the affected property owners would pay $154,850.75. With the discount, they would pay $139,365.68. However, since council voted to receive and file the overall report, Foley’s recom-

mendation was essentially voided. Findings and conclusions Foley reviewed “a wealth of documents” that city administration provided him as background to the complaint, he said. Besides information about phase 1 of the cast iron replacement program, he also looked at advertising and information related to the local improvement program (LIP) model, plus samples of all documents provided to the 33 affected property owners. After the 2016 municipal election, the new city council changed the LIP model, which meant Foley had to review additional materials and documents. There are currently more questions than answers about some of what transpired, what was said to whom, and what verbal transactions may have taken place outside the written record, he said. “However, I am convinced that the information provided by the city to the affected property owners, read in its entirety, makes clear the obligations of the property owners as it relates to the costs being billed,” he continued. This observation is supported by the fact 26 of the affected property owners — or 80 per cent — accepted their invoices and agreed to pay them. Foley pointed out the property owners would have to pay much more if they were required to pay under the terms and conditions in place today. He determined property owners would pay 17-per-cent more than they were originally billed. The municipality made efforts to clarify and explain any confusion the seven property owners might have experienced, Foley said. It has also held, in abeyance, the payment of the invoices while the matter was under review. Since this matter is


three years old, Foley thought both sides might have to make concessions to bring the matter to a satisfactory conclusion. “I have found no evidence to suggest that there should be any assignment of blame

to anyone. All staff I have had cause to contact have been co-operative, professional and respectful … ,” he added. “I do feel confident that this recommendation I have made is fair, equitable and just.”

City Hall Council Notes Some residents bothered by bylaw officers enforcing parking standards Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Some residents have been complaining about being targeted by the bylaw enforcement officers for how far they park from meters and would like some leniency instead. Coun. Crystal Froese raised the issue during city council’s Aug. 12 regular meeting. She informed city administration that some residents have come to her saying the zeal of the bylaw officers is bothering them. Froese wondered if parking staff have the ability to issue warnings instead, or whether tickets are the only option. “They follow the bylaw, so it’s at their discretion,” replied Michelle Sanson, director of planning and development services. “They do measure if it’s too far away, from what I understand … especially if it’s really far away from the curb.” City administration also provided an answer to an ear-

lier inquiry from Coun. Brian Swanson, who wanted to know why the 1100 block of Fourth Avenue Northeast wasn’t widened when it was paved. Council considered the matter of narrow roads at the April 17 executive committee meeting, Josh Mickleborough, director of engineering services, explained in a letter. A trial area for one-sided parking was implemented in the north-central area near Saskatchewan Polytechnic. The width used to establish one-sided parking was nine metres, he continued. The narrow roads are a trial in the north-central area so there is no existing policy to apply. Meanwhile, the approach in the trial was to implement one-sided parking. It appears that the width of Fourth Avenue Northeast would not meet the criteria for nine

metres. In response, Swanson told council that that street is a main thoroughfare and becomes a bottleneck when it reaches the 1100 block. He wondered whether widening the street was even considered since only one side would need to have been adjusted. “We spent a lot of money redoing that street. I don’t understand why we wouldn’t have widened it four feet,” Swanson said. “We hear a lot of the term ‘best practice’ when it comes to asking requests for money from us. “Would it not have been best practice to look at widening that street, given that two previous blocks on that thoroughfare have been widened? That street is going to be there for the next 20 years.”

City hall, councillor differ on length of time to replace all cast iron pipes Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

City administration and Coun. Brian Swanson have differing views on how long it will take to replace all the cast iron water pipes in Moose Jaw, with administration saying 20 years and Swanson saying 35 years. City administration presented the second-quarter report to city council during its Aug. 12 regular meeting. The report provided a summary of the activities of each department from April to June. Council voted 6-1 to receive the report; Swanson was opposed. In the report from the engineering department, a summary was provided of how much money had been spent on phase 4 of the water main replacement and relining programs. The annual budget for the cast iron water main replacement and relining program is $6.5 million, engineering manager Josh Mickleborough told Coun. Heather Eby. Not all of that will be spent this year. About $300,000 will be carried over to

next year due to tenders for the relining program coming in under budget. If that $300,000 had been spent this year, between 120 metres and 150 metres would have been replaced. The report indicates that at the end of the second quarter more than $4.6 million had been spent on phase 4, while $633,890 had been spent on relining, for a total of $5.28 million. This means 1,840 metres of cast iron pipes have been replaced and 420 metres of water mains had been relined, or 2,260 metres in total. Swanson was concerned that only 2,200 metres of pipe would be replaced or relined this year considering the full budget was not being spent. “And it continues to be reported in all our documents that we have a 20-year program to replace 80,000 metres of cast iron water line,” he continued. “The math’s pretty simple: that requires 4,000 metres a year. We haven’t come close to (that) yet … . Realistically we’re looking at a 35-

iron replacement program. There will be an additional $8 million in federal funding coming next year that could be redirected to water infrastructure projects, but administration will have to determine how much replacement can be realistically achieved, he continued. “We are making some progress. We will bring on an additional construction crew. There is a lot of work to do on that one, but we are much closer to that required number,” he added. “We want to ensure that we are meeting it in 20 years. Hopefully next year … we’ll be able to make a lot more progress.” Initial budgetary documents indicated it would cost about $1,850 per linear metre to replace four kilometres of cast iron pipes, said Mickleborough. However, that number is expected to increase. Administration is monitoring inflationary pressures on the budget and has not seen them yet but believes it could happen soon.

year program.” The amount of money spent this year means it costs about $2,000/metre to replace these pipes, said Swanson. The last time he raised this issue, it had cost $1,800 a metre. This means, in four years the municipality will have replaced 10,000 metres of cast iron pipes instead of 16,000 metres, leaving 70,000 metres left to be replaced at $168 million, he continued. This itself has increased by $42 million from when the project started. “Strategic plans and all that: phooey as far as I’m concerned … ,” added Swanson. “We have got to get our priorities better fixed.” The federal and provincial governments have provided funding recently for water projects, said city manager Jim Puffalt. Moose Jaw received additional funding through the federal Gas Tax Fund, so it spent $1.17 million on the east feeder mains project and $500,000 on the cast

Full payment for purchase of industrial park property still not made but expected Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Carpere Canada might have become the main developer of the Southeast Industrial Park by buying all the available land there, but it has not yet paid in full for that purchase. Carpere Canada — a private investment and management company that focuses on agricultural opportunities — and the City of Moose Jaw signed an agreement in May that saw Carpere purchase 312 hectares (780 acres) of land at the industrial park for $7.8 million, making it the largest land deal in the history of Moose Jaw. Both parties then signed a purchasing agreement, master development agreement and servicing agreement in July that allowed Carpere to proceed with the next phases in the development of the area. The developmental levy fee on the 780 acres, at $49,000 per acre, could generate $38,688,000 for the municipality if Carpere develops the land in the next 10 years. The private investment company put down a non-refund-

able deposit of $780,000 to secure the land. As part of the purchase agreement, the company signed a contract with a defined due diligence period and a defined closing date deadline. This means full payment is not due until the closing date. Coun. Brian Swanson raised the issue of Carpere not paying the full amount of $7.8 million during city council’s Aug. 12 regular meeting. City administration confirmed that this was true. “To me, purchase means we would have received the money. And when we only have a non-refundable deposit of ($780,000), wording becomes important. This becomes a record of the city,” Swanson said. “As I used to be told by a former member of council, ‘Many a slip between the cup and the lip.’ “I don’t think the wording is justified in the circumstances. The purchase is complete when the money is paid.” The agreement with Carpere is an agreement to purchase, confirmed city manager Jim Puffalt. The company should begin performing its due diligence on this project by the end of October. Everything else seems to be going well so far.

Judge threatens to throw offender in jail for poor behaviour Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

After learning he faced more than one charge in court, Kevin Wesley Goudy became so irate that the judge threatened to throw him in jail. Goudy, 55, appeared in Moose Jaw provincial court on Aug. 19, where he faced charges of impaired driving and refusing to comply with a police officer’s demand for a breath sample from an incident on Aug. 1 in Moose Jaw. Upon hearing he had two charges — he thought he only faced a charge of impaired driving — Goudy interrupted Judge Daryl Rayner and pointed out there should be only one offence. “I have no record of a second charge. I only have this,â€? he said, holding up a piece of paper. Rayner then explained that police laid two charges against him, and while he might have an appearance notice with one charge, there were now two against him. Goudy replied that he didn’t refuse to blow; he couldn’t since he has poor health. Although Goudy might disagree with the charges, Rayner still wanted to know if he understood them, especially since this was his first appearance in court. “I don’t know why there’s two charges; it’s not right ‌ ,â€? replied Goudy. “I only want the one charge and that’s it because I was not refusing the breathalyzer.â€? Goudy refused to accept the sheet from the Crown prosecutor with the new information, saying irritatedly that he would accept only the one charge. “I even requested that they take me for a blood test,â€? he continued, talking over Rayner. “They refused to do that. I was not intoxicated. I’m fed up with the police putting on extra harassment on me. It’s been going on for 30 years. This is enough. I’ve had it. I have never drunken drive and I don’t need that on my record.â€?

When Rayner asked if Goudy planned to get a lawyer, he replied that a lawyer would probably tell him to plead guilty and he was not going to do that. Instead, he would handle this himself. He also demanded his licence back. Rayner told him that there were two allegations, but Goudy replied, “That’s your allegations again. As I said, they’re making up more charges and I don’t agree with it.� The judge then entered two not guilty pleas into the court record for Goudy, adding he would adjourn the charges for case management since that happens when people want to represent themselves without a lawyer. He attempted to discuss case management further, but Goudy interrupted him again. “I want somebody who’s going to make sure those police are charged for lying under oath,� Goudy said. “Because of two charges I never received. I only received the one. I’m here on the one and that is it. So the police have to be charged. And every time I’ve called in with complaints, they’ve charged me with mischief. And I’m fed up with that too. “So give me my court date and I’ll talk to that case management person, but I expect that person to do the job.� “Mr. Goudy, I’m being very tolerant with you, sir,� Judge Rayner said calmly before a hard edge entered his voice. “But you’re pushing it. I want you to understand: you continue with this type of behaviour and you’re going to be ending up there� — using his right thumb to point at the prisoner’s box — “Do you understand that sir?� “I do,� replied Goudy. Rayner then set Sept. 6 as the date for Goudy’s case management meeting.

Stealing bike from the library leads to probation for offender Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

After parking his bike at the Moose Jaw Public Library, William Danny Donnie Michaels spotted a red bike also parked in the rack and decided he liked that one better. Surveillance cameras spotted Michaels, 23, hop onto the $200 bike and ride off, leaving his behind and for the owner to call police to report the theft. In Moose Jaw provincial court on Aug. 19, Michaels pleaded guilty to theft under $5,000 and received a suspended sentence, which means he won’t serve jail time. As part of a joint submission, he will spend the next 12 months on probation, have to keep the peace and be of good behaviour, report to a probation officer and take counselling. Police identified Michaels after viewing the surveillance footage and arrested him quickly, said Crown prosecutor Stephen Yusuff. The Crown took into consideration Michaels’ personal circumstances — he suffers from mental illness — when putting together the sentence recommendation. “He has fairly significant mental health and cognitive difficulties,� echoed legal aid lawyer Suzanne Jeanson. Michaels was experiencing instability at the time he committed the offence and was not doing well in life, she continued. Since then, however, he has been taking new medication that is slowly starting to work. It’s early, but Jeanson noted Michaels is now more stable. “We thought support and counselling would be beneficial for him,� she said. Michaels is open to working with the probation officer, whom he has interacted with previously. Jeanson informed Judge Daryl Rayner that the bike had not been recovered. Rayner accepted the joint submission, saying he would normally make Michaels pay restitution for the bike, but didn’t think he would be able to given his unique circumstances.

Hot dogs sizzle as CIBC fundraises for breast cancer Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

CIBC staff and volunteers were all smiles as they served up hot dogs and lemonade during a lunchtime fundraiser for breast cancer. CIBC’s Run for the Cure began in 1992 and has raised $16 million since then. This year’s run takes place on Sunday, Oct. 6 in Regina. To contribute to this event, the CIBC branch in Moose Jaw served up lunch in its parking lot on Aug. 16. “CIBC is a big sponsor of the run every year,” explained Vrinda Srikant, community general manager. “All branches make the best effort to help cure cancer.” Breast cancer is the main focus since many women in the organization have experienced this disease themselves or know someone who do, Srikant continued. Therefore, CIBC is passionate about pitching in where it can to fundraise for breast cancer awareness, whether it’s raising money or purchasing equipment.

Although the hot dog sale had only begun, Srikant pointed out the branch had already raised more than $1,500 for the run through previous fundraisers during Sidewalk Days and its in-house book sale. Since this project is a team effort, branch employees usually decide what to do every year as a fundraiser, said Srikant. This year it was selling hot dogs, while in previous years it was bake sales. “The Moose Jaw community has been very supportive,” she said, adding several businesses contributed to the lunch fundraiser. “The purpose of this is to get out into the community … Moose Jaw, no doubt, is a great community where people always help.” More information about the CIBC Run for the Cure can be found at

Local unions hosting community barbecue for Labour Day Larissa Kurz

Members of Moose Jaw’s many labour unions are inviting Moose Jaw down to the Union Centre on Sept. 2 for a free barbeque to celebrate labour workers and everything they do for this community. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., union members will be serving up hot dogs, hamburgers, and popcorn to anyone who wants to come down and mingle. They have also planned some entertainment for the

kids, including face painting, a bouncy castle, and a clown. Stacey Landin, president of the CUPE Local 9, noted that around ten of the local unions have come together to take part in the 5th annual barbeque on Labour Day, including the SEIU, SUN, Unifor, UFCW, and others. The barbeque is meant to interact with the community and show some appreciation for both current working citizens

and those of the past as well. “People who are union members are community members…so we want to show people the services they provide and how we appreciate the community we live in and provide services for,” said Landin. Everyone is welcome to stop in, with the majority of the festivities being held in the park behind the Union Centre,at 1402 Caribou Street W. If the weather is

poor, things will move inside the Union Centre. “We’re always pleased to present it and we’re very honoured with the number of people who have come to show up and join us, rain or shine,” said Landin. “We hope everyone takes some time to celebrate the working people of our community with us.”

Friends, family celebrateJason launch of Moose Jaw author’s third book G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Surrounded by friends, family and shiny jewelry, Moose Jaw author Carla O’Reilly launched her third self-help book, which focuses on overcoming mental illness. Fifth Avenue Collection played host to the book launch on Aug. 15, where O’Reilly unveiled T.U.R.N. O.N. T.H.E. S.W.I.T.C.H. The book deals with postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis, which she suffered following the birth of her son. The book features 15 wellness tools that are universally applicable to mental illness and self-confidence. More than two-dozen women popped into the jewelry business during the two-hour celebration to congratulate O’Reilly and receive an autographed copy of the book. A large glass table was set up in the front foyer with copies of O’Reilly’s new book, along with copies of her second book, The Smiling Mask. Sitting at the table, O’Reilly signed copies of her book and excitedly hugged everyone who stepped through the front door. “It’s so nice to have all my friends (here),” she said. “I am super excited to see the support. That’s really exciting.” The turnout for the book launch was awesome, O’Reilly continued. Those people

Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Callie Barbour has been barrel racing for the past 12 years and enjoys the environment, the people, and most especially, the horses. “I love working with the horses and getting them as competitive as possible and seeing their full potential,” said Barbour, adding it is an adrenaline rush racing around the barrels. The Estevan resident followed in her sister’s footsteps and jumped into the sport when she was in Grade 2. Barbour eventually competed in high school rodeos, before moving to Glen Dive, Montana a few years ago on a rodeo scholarship. Barbour was in Moose Jaw from Aug. 14 to 16 to compete in the 2019 Saskatchewan Barrel Racing Association (SBRA) provincials, along with more than 500 other competitors from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. There were 695 runs scheduled during the three days, while more than 1,200 visitors were expected to attend. There were 46 kids in the peewee category, 128 youths in the youth category and 390 adults in the open category. Organiz-

Antonio ers say this is the biggest year for entries they’ve seen in a while; there were about 150 more competitors this year than last year. Barbour and her horse, Mack, ran into some bad luck during the first day of competing, but had a clean run during the second day, she said, which left her in the middle of the pack. “I’m happy with that,” she said, adding she didn’t make the final round but her sister did. This was the first time Callie Andersen, 10, competed at provincials after becoming a racer seven years ago. The Pangman girl and her horse, Otis, had two clean runs during the first two days, so they were placed at the bottom of the standings and will likely compete in the finals. “It’s very fun. I get to go fast,” Anders-

en added. “I get to hang out with all my friends (as well).” The SBRA provincials returned to Moose Jaw after a 10-year absence, explained president Shasta Hanna. The finals were brought back to The Friendly City due to the extra space at the Exhibition Grounds — including grass fields for the horses — along with the fact Moose Jaw is in central Saskatchewan. “We’ve just been growing our membership. We need a lot of parking for trucks and rigs,” said Hanna, who has competed in barrel racing for more than 20 years. The SBRA provincials are the largest equestrian event in Saskatchewan, while the SBRA itself is one of the largest — if not the largest — horse groups in the province, with 1,000 members, she continued.

“It’s exciting to watch and do,” Hanna remarked. While 90 per cent of the membership is composed of women, barrel racing is for everyone. “People want to do it and it’s awesome. It’s an adrenaline rush.” Racing comes down to milliseconds and who can manoeuvre their horse around the barrels the most efficiently. Hanna pointed out riders can practise all year long, but when they’re competing, threeone-hundredths of a second can affect where riders finish in the standings. “Every little bobble of the horse makes a difference,” she said. Riders have to think of everything, from ground conditions to the health of the horse to the health of the jockey, Hanna continued. Riders usually treat their horses better than themselves, almost like their children. The equines receive therapy with infrared lights and even exercise on treadmills in the water. “I enjoy how competitive it is. I’m a pretty competitive person and I enjoy the thrill of (how) every little thing counts,” she added. “And it’s always growing. You always have to be getting better.”

Williams, McDougall claim Women’s Rosebowl title

Katepwa Beach duo card 28-under-par to claim title; Lynbrook’s Sharon Knittel, Deb Higgins top Moose Jaw performers Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Some competitors posted some impressive net scores during the 49th annual Golf Sask Women’s Rosebowl tournament at the Lynbrook Golf and Country Club. Fort Qu’Appelle’s Sandra Williams and Lebret’s Kathi McDougall – both members at Katepwa Beach Golf Club – ended up carding a 28-under-par 118 through the twoday event, opening with a 15-under 58 on Wednesday before carding a 13-under 60 in windy conditions Thursday to claim their first Rosebowl title. “We had no expectations whatsoever, it was our first time, there were 12 of us from Katepwa and they convinced us to come out and play,” Williams said of the win. “They’ve been after us for awhile to come out so we thought we’d give it a try and have fun. “The course is really nice, and it was windy, it started out cold in the morning but turned into a really comfortable day. It was a nice tournament,” McDougall added. “Katepwa is hosting it next year, too, so I thought it would be a good thing to at least experience it before we actually played in it on our own course.” The tournament format uses a two-ball better-ball format that includes handicaps in scoring. Both McDougall and Williams carried a handicap in the 23 range heading into the event, but through each day reeled off enough solid shots to drive their score into PGA-record territory. As an example, their opening round included 10 birdies and three eagles. In fact, had it not been for a double bogey on 15, their score could have fallen into the mid-50s.

Fort Qu’Appelle’s Sandra Williams and Lebret’s Kathi McDougall look on during action from the 13th hole on Thursday. Not bad for a couple of rookies. “It’s the first time we used our handicaps and it’s a great format,” Williams said. “It’s a lot of fun playing as a team; it takes some pressure off you if you have a bad shot.” Cheryl Lawrence and Linda Sokul of Wynyard were tied for the opening-day lead but a second-round 63 saw them finish three shots back at -25. Clubmates Marie Wachno and Sheila Popowich were third, following an open-

The Lynbrook team of Sharon Knittel and Deb Higgins had the top Moose Jaw finish, shooting back-to-back rounds of 32 to finish 12th overall.

Plenty of medals for local athletes at Western Canada Summer Games Johns, Lin lead way in pool, Branning on track, softball and basketball also find podium Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Cadence Johns, the Moose Jaw Kinsmen Flying Fins standout emerged as Team Saskatchewan’s top performer through the first half of the Games in Swift Current held the week of August 9th to 18th, tearing up the Aquatic Centre pool to come home with five gold medals, two silver, a bronze and at the very minimum a top-six finish in every race she swam. Johns topped the podium in the 100-metre backstroke and butterfly, 200m back and breaststroke and 400m individual medley. The 15-year-old competitor’s silver came in the 200m IM and bronze in the 4x100m freestyle. Johns was also fourth in the 4x200m free relay, sixth in the 4x200m mixed free relay and sixth in the 3,000m open water swim. Austin Lin also picked up gold for Team Sask, topping the podium in the 100m free and adding a host of medals in the relays, including silver in the 4x100m mixed free, 4x100m men’s free and 4x200 men’s free along with a bronze in the 4x200m mixed free. Chloe Johns, 13, had a solid meet in her own right, winning silver in the 4x100m medley relay while putting together sixth-or-better finishes in the 50m breast, 200m breast and 4x200m IM relay. Reese Koch, 15, finished fifth in the 4x200m free, seventh in the 50m back, 4x100m free and 4x100m medley as well as eighth in the 100m back and ninth in the 200m back. **** Alexis Bradish continued her rapid ascension to the top of the wrestling ranks, winning gold in her 65-kilogram women’s division. Bradish qualified directly for the final in her weight class after posting a 4-1 record. Interestingly enough, Bradish’s opponent in the single’s championship match, Judith Russell of Yukon Territory, was her only loss in the duals. Bradish needed only 2:17 to record the fall and take first place. Payton Kell also put together a 4-1 record in his 39-to42-kg division but was unable to get his own measure of revenge, as he lost by technical fall to Manitoba’s Ebraheim Aldrar in the gold medal match. Kyle Yamniuk’s bad luck in the duals saw him finish with a 3-2 record after a pair of close decision loss-

There, Yamniuk picked up a similar result to his victory over Critch in the duals, winning by pinfall in 1:42 to secure his medal. **** Dylan Boughen and the Saskatchewan men’s basketball team capped the event with a silver medal, falling 90-70 to Alberta in the gold medal game. Boughen had five points in the title game.

The Moose Jaw Bantam Ice standout didn’t play in the opening 6-3 win over Alberta but subbed in midway through each of their other contests, which included a 3-2 loss to Manitoba in what would be their final round robingame. Rain cancelled the final two preliminary contests, with Saskatchewan defeating Alberta 4-3 in the bronze medal semifinal before dropping an 8-1 decision to Manitoba in the gold medal contest. **** University of Regina Cougars sprinter Jonah Branning picked up a pair of medals in track and field during the second half of the Games. Banning won silver in the 200m in 21.97 seconds and followed with a second-place finish with Team Sask in the 4x100m relay. He also picked up a sixth-place finish in the 100m, running a time of 10.99 in the final. Peacock grad Camryn Gillies took the track for a pair of top-10 finishes, taking eighth in the 800m in 2:33.30 and ninth in the 400m in 1:03.24. **** Austin Lin was back in action during the second half of the Games, this time on the tennis court. He joined with Saskatoon’s William Preciado to go 3-1 in the team competition and win silver, before defeating NWT’s NWT Ethan Carr and Nikhilesh Gohil 6-1, 6-0 in the semifinal and falling 6-3, 6-3 to Alberta’s Arshot Bhatti and Aiden Rypien-Nazar in the firstplace match. Harry Lin saw action in men’s singles and also went 3-1 in team matches. He then lost his quarter-final contest 4-6, 6-1, 10-1 to Manitoba’s Stefan Barre before rebounding to claim fifth overall with a 6-0, 6-0 win over Manitoba’s Daksith Premathilaka.

Another successful showing for Femsport competitors Close to 80 athletes take part in event on Cordova Street

Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

When the Femsport women’s strength and fitness event made its first appearance in Moose Jaw two years ago, a total of 50 competitors took part in what was still a fledgling competition on the western Canadian sports scene. Since then, it’s been nothing but bigger and better. Saturday’s showing on Cordova Street next to Grant Hall offered the latest example, as close to 80 athletes from throughout Saskatchewan took part in the various events designed to push competitors to their limits and beyond. “It’s really good; it’s been a long day but these women are pretty amazing,” said Femsport Moose Jaw organizer Aubrey Shpaiuk of Main Street Fitness and Conditioning. “We’ve got women of all different fitness levels and all different

shapes and skill levels. That’s what’s really nice about this competition, it’s for anybody. You don’t have to be an elite athlete, as long as you finish, that’s all that matters.” The format is similar to what one would see in a crossfit or strongman competition – athletes are put through their paces in a variety of events to test their strength and cardio abilities as much as possible. All events are timed, with the Moose Jaw slate including 50 box jumps, six tractor tire flips, 15 sandbag burpees, Linda Thauberger of the Moose Jaw a 23-metre tire pull, five kettlebell carMain Sweets battles through the tire ry-and-lifts and the traditional obstacle drag. course.

Competitors were broken into three divisions, including a Masters class for veteran competitors, Novice for first timers and the Open division for those looking for top finishes. Results ranged from sub-minute times across the board for the top Open performers and some who gave it their all but just fell short in the end. And when it comes down to it, that’s what Femsport is all about. “We have so many of them putting out maximum effort today,” Shpaiuk said. “A lot of them train for at least 12 weeks before they even come here, so it’s a lot of blood, sweat and tears before they even do the first event. It means a lot to

them and that’s why they go as hard as they do.” There was also a charity component to the 2019 edition, as members of the Rat Pack team, led by breast cancer survivor Sherry Robart, used the competition to raise funds for the Moose Jaw Health Foundation’s Mammography Matters campaign. In total, seven local competitors took part, part of a growing group of athletes from all over the province who have circled the Moose Jaw Femsport stop on their calendars. “It’s becoming a pretty popular event, each year the event seems to be growing as the awareness increases more and more,” Shpaiul said. “We’re getting more and more people all the time, maybe we’ll even hit 100 next year.”

Twin Lakes Ranch holds Fun Youth Rodeo

More than 30 youngsters take part in event designed to introduce kids to rodeo while having plenty of fun at the same time Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

A total of 32 kids ranging from pre-schoolers to young teenagers took part in the annual Fun Youth Rodeo at the local Twin Lakes Ranch just outside of Moose Jaw, trying their hand at a wide variety of rodeo events designed to give youngsters a taste of what it’s all about. “The cowboy world has always been in my life and we just really like to help these kids get into a way of life that brings enjoyment while learning about rodeo and stuff about horses,” said Ron Silvester of Twin Lakes Ranch Ministries, shortly after presenting each of the participants with a prize package donated by an impressive list of sponsors for the event. “I feel they don’t have as many opportunities to do so these days so we’re happy to help them with that and make sure they have a good time, too.” Kids could take part with or without their own horses – non-riders eightand-under ran the cloverleaf in a stick horse barrel race, boot scramble and goat ribbon pulling while ages 9-to-13 tried their hand at the latter event along with mounted water-gun shooting and goat-roping on foot. Younger riders took a shot at barrel racing, ribbon pulling and pole bending, while mounted water gun shooting, barrel racing and goat roping were the purvey of the oldest riders. “It went really good, all the kids really enjoyed trying to learn new things and some rodeo events as well,” Silvester said. “It’s so much fun to have these kids out here and it’s great to see them enjoy themselves.” Riders aged 11 to 17 years will have a chance to further their skills in the next rodeo-related event at Twin Lakes Ranch Ministries, with a Weekend Youth Horse Camp taking place Sept. 6-8. Mounted shooting and barrel racing competitor Raylene Prieb will act as the arena instructor, with the camp covering a gamut of riding skills including basics and patterns, general horsemanship, trail riding, cattle sorting, and a wide variety of other events. The fee is $150 including a $50 deposit and the first 20 riders and horses will be accepted. For more information contact twinlakesranch@ or visit

Plenty of positives coming out of Warriors camp Coach Hunter impressed with performances through weekend Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

They’re through training camp. Now things really start to pick up for the Moose Jaw Warriors. The Western Hockey League squad wrapped up their 2019 team try-out with the Black/White Intrasquad game at Mosaic Place the afternoon of Sunday, Aug. 25 (see story), marking the first time this season the Warriors veterans took to the ice alongside the team’s up-and-coming rookies in a full game. And based on what head coach Tim Hunter has seen through the early going, things are looking pretty good. The annual grind of physical testing saw a host of impressive results, something that Hunter felt was a sign of the team’s veterans and prospects alike taking things very, very seriously when it comes to hitting camp in the best shape possible. “We had some great scores in our beep tests and some of our other tests, which goes to the culture we’re building here with an elite, fit group,” Hunter said before adding that some players were even beyond the pale in that regard. “We did a speed test this year, 28 metres, the fastest guy was Luke Ormsby and

Shots from the Warriors scrimmages throughout the weekend. right behind him was Daemon Hunt, so the second fastest guy on our team is a defenceman, which is something you’d never really have thought of. But he’s worked on his power and strength and has really come along.” Testing led straight into rookie camp



through Thursday afternoon and all day Friday, with 14 players moving on to main camp – including Moose Jaw Minor Hockey products Kirk Mullen and Atley Calvert. The first main camp scrimmage took place on Saturday morning and brought the exact kind of performances Hunter and the Warriors’ management staff were looking to see. “It was really competitive and a great game,” Hunter said. “There were some nice goals and real good finesse hockey out there, and we saw that we have a really good group of young defenceman back there to watch, so we’re really excited about this group of players.” Besides a highlight-reel goal from 2019 Bantam Draft pick Jagger Firkus – which Hunter described as a model of patience with an impressive top-shelf finish – few players have stood out. And that’s a good thing in the head coach’s eyes. “Usually there are guys you don’t even notice out there because they aren’t doing their job, but everyone stands out and it’s exciting to see,” Hunter said. That includes the team’s veteran corps, led by the Warriors’ lone 20-year-old in Ormsby. “Tate Popple looks good, Kjell Kjemhus, the Taphorn twins ((Keenan and Kaedan) look really good out there. (defenceman) Matt Benson, he’s taken a step and has looked good as well,” Hunter said. “Then Luke Ormsby has been a leader out there; he’s driving the engine in the fitness testing and other things. So it’s all good; there are a lot of positives to take away from what we’ve seen so far.” One player not on the ice this weekend is their de facto offensive leader in Brayden Tracey. The 18-year-old winger isn’t around for a very good reason – he’s currently in Anaheim skating with the Ducks veterans after being selected in the first round of the NHL Entry Draft this summer. Carson Denomie was also back on the ice during Saturday’s second session after an impressive showing through early prac-

tices, leading to Hunter predicting big things for the 19-year-old Regina product. “He looked really good on the ice when training camp started, so we’re hoping for 25, 30 goals from him this year,” Hunter said. As far as the team’s personnel, the Warriors have two overage and one import spot currently open, but the news is good on that front in the long term – it’s expected there will be plenty of 20-year-olds on the market once cutdowns are finalized, with, as an example, the Medicine Hat Tigers having as many as six heading into training camp and the Prince Albert Raiders seven, including the majority of their defensive corps. “We’ll get through camp and see what we have,” Hunter said. “A lot of teams will have guys at NHL camps and will have holes, too, so once all the NHL camps send their players back, things start to unfold and guys become available. “No one is going to trade too many 20-year-olds right now because players are at camps, some guys might earn some spots and they’re going to have to change the path they go down. So I’m not really concerned about that, (general manager) Al (Millar) and (assistant gm) Jason (Ripplinger) will find us some good players; they always do. But right now, we’ll work with what we have, we’re excited about this group and we’re looking forward to seeing how things turn out.” The Warriors were back on the ice Tuesday, Aug. 27 in an all-rookie game against the Regina Pats. Next action for the local squad is during the Pats pre-season tournament when they take on Swift Current on Friday, Aug. 30 and Saskatoon on Saturday, Aug. 31. Both games are at the Brandt Centre in Regina.

Soap Box Derby races a summer tradition

Plenty of close races and tons of fun as annual event gives drivers a taste of speed Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

For a youngster taking part in only his second event, Josh Overby had a pretty good showing during the recent Moose Jaw Soap Box Derby races. The annual event drew a total of 23 racers – 11 in the senior division, 12 in the juniors – with Overby, 8, coming away with the Rookie of the Year honour in the junior class. And even though his trips down Alder Avenue hill were among his first ever in a soap box derby car, the strategy of it all was something he quickly caught on to. “When you’re racing in junior you never want to be laying back, you want to be as far forward as possible, then you get more speed,” Overby said of his strategy throughout the day of races. “Then it’s only a three-quarter of an inch steering, and since the road bends in the middle and is lower down on the sides, you have to turn to the inside or you’ll hit people or go off course… they’re not hard to drive but they’re a lot of fun.” That’s the whole idea of the day, said long-time Derby organizer Heather Carle – getting the kids out and having a great time while learning a bit about racing at the same time. “It was really good; we had 23 racers and everything went really well. There were no accidents and the whole day ran pretty smoothly,” Carle said. “There were some really good races, too, which always makes things fun.” The sole issue of the day came with the timing system

Facebook photo. and those close races: organizers ended up using video to determine the winner of the closest battles, and sometimes even that wasn’t enough. “When you have some races where the difference can be .05 of a second, that’s pretty tough to decide,” Carle said. “So, we had to re-run a few races but that just meant everyone had more fun.” An interesting highlight came from the Moose Jaw Police Service being on site with a radar gun to check out just how fast the cars were actually travelling. The final verdict? Junior cars topped out at around 41 kilometres per hour at the finish line, with the sleeker and heavier senior cars hitting the 48 km/h mark.

Overby will, in fact, be making the jump to the quicker cars next year, something he’s looking forward to. “It’s a lot different, I haven’t tried a senior car yet, but they’re pretty fast and they look like they’ll be a lot of fun,” he said. The junior division was won by Easton Perrault, with Kaleb Snyder finishing second and Sophia Laverdiere third. The Sportsmanship award was won by Juli Finlay, with Zayden Dussalt claiming the Grease Monkey award, Emmitt Meyer the Hard Luck award and Overby his rookie of the year honour. Joshua Laverdiere finished first in the senior class, just ahead of Aiden Jahnke in second and Serenity Laverdiere in third. Hayden Perrault won the Sportsmanship award, Jacob Dickson the Grease Monkey award and Cailey Nagy the Hard Luck award.

Warriors close camp with Black/White Intrasquad Game Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw Warriors veterans Tate Popple and Daemon Hunt gave it their all throughout training camp and in the intrasquad game, and now that the ‘making the team’ thing is officially out of the way, it’s time to really get down to business. Popple scored once and was a threat on offence every shift as his Team Black took a 7-4 victory over Hunt and Team White to close out training camp Sunday afternoon at Mosaic Place. “It never gets old; it’s always tough and competitive and even when you’re on the team you’re still fighting for a spot,” said Popple, one of the team’s few 19-year-old forwards. “We had that chat the other day, nobody is in the clear, everyone is fighting for ice time and just to get on the team, I might be a veteran but I still had to play hard. It’s good, it’s fun and it was a good weekend.” Popple battled injuries much of last season and finished with 11 goals and 19 points in 42 games. Now with a healthy summer behind him and a season loaded with potential in front, the third-year Tribe veteran is looking forward to the new campaign. “With the guys who have left, someone else has to step up, and I want to be one of the guys who puts points on the board,” he said. “But if you let that get into your head it’s bad for everybody, it’s a team game and I’m just a part of it… It’s going to be fun to see how things go and I’m really looking forward to it.” The stakes are especially high for Hunt – the 17-year-old rearguard is coming off an appearance earlier this month with Team Canada at the Hlinka Gretzky tournament and is currently ranked in the top-60 prospects for the 2020 National Hockey League draft. He’s apparently taken that all to heart. Not only has Hunt come into camp bigger and stronger, his test results have pegged him among the fittest and fastest players on the team. Now it’s time to put all that work to good use. “It’s been great, it’s always great to be out

Action from the Moose Jaw Warriors’ Black White Intrasquad game on Sunday afternoon at Mosaic Place. there with all the young prospects competing for a spot on the team and I’m really happy with everything,” said Hunt, who scored seven goals and 20 points while going plus-21 as a 16-year-old rookie defenceman. “My game specifically has been really good, it’s been a busy summer, but I think I’m grown a lot as a player as well so I’m looking forward to it.” While he was held off the scoresheet on Sunday, having the chance to hit the ice in a fully competitive game was most certainly a positive. “It was awesome,” he said. “There was a really good compete level, all the guys are going all out to make the roster spots and I love seeing that. I remember being in their shoes and being pretty nervous and just trying to compete against everyone, so this year I wanted to come in and show that I’ve come in stronger and can compete even harder.” Kaedan Taphorn led the Team Black offence with a goal and two assists, while Cameron Sterling, Braden Miller, Luke Ormsby, Ryan Hofer and Alek Sukunda all had single markers. Matthew Sanders picked up a pair of assists for Black, who led 2-1 after the first and 5-2 through two. Moose Jaw minor hockey product and Prairie Hockey Academy standout Kirk Mullen continued his impressive training camp with a goal and an assist for Team White. Daniil Stepanov, Kade Runke and Dakota MacIntosh all had single markers. Kyle Kelsey got the start in goal for Team Black and stopped seven shots in his peri-

od and half of work before giving way to Brett Mirwald, who made 10 stops the rest of the way. Hunter Lolacher made 10 stops in 31 minutes for Team White; Jackson Berry stopped 16. The Warriors had a practice day Monday before taking the ice in an all-rookie game with the Regina Pats on Tuesday night. Game time is 7 p.m. at Mosaic Place. Overtime… former Notre Dame Hounds

and Clarkson University standout Olivia Howe served as a guest coach for Team White, with Moose Jaw AAA Warriors head coach Trevor Weisgerber lending a hand on the Team Black bench… admission to the Intrasquad Game was by donation, with all proceeds going to the Canadian Mental Health Association in memory of Ethan Williams. The game against Regina will have the same admission in place.

Bereavement support groups healing the entire community Larissa Kurz

Della Ferguson of Jones-Parkview Funeral Services has been running bereavement support groups in Moose Jaw since 1999, and she finds that they offer an indisputable comfort to those who attend. Grief can be a difficult journey and finding people in similar circumstances can sometimes ease the burden, said Ferguson. That is why she runs several bereavement support groups each month, to provide advice, support, and even reading materials to help navigate one’s grief. The four different groups that Ferguson moderates focus on healing through experiencing those feelings of grief and expressing them in a supportive environment full of people who truly understand. Common Ground invites those who have lost their spouse to weekly meetings over five weeks, offered in the spring and fall of each year. The group focuses on adjusting to life without that loved one. “That aloneness of being without their partner is so profound that they need to have that safe space and connecting with others who really get it,� said Ferguson. “All of these groups are all about being with others who really get it. . . We want to offer people that opportunity of a safe space to share, to speak their grief, to release and process it.� The Hope group, which meets on the second Wednesday of each month, welcomes those who have experienced loss of any kind, while the Bereaved Parents group that meets on the third Wednesday of each month focuses on those who have lost a child. The Survivors of Suicide group meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month and addresses the feelings that come from being affected by suicide. The group has even branched out to create a separate group, Journey to Hope, which plans a charity run each year to raise money for suicide prevention awareness. The youth chapter, Journey 2 Hope, also just formed this past winter and are including youth voices in the public discussion about suicide. Bereavement is a struggle that Ferguson feels deserves attention, as it affects almost everyone in some way. Fer-

Policies and Promptings

guson and the Jones-Parkview Funeral group feel that bereavement support is vital for the community and has seen these support groups create lasting connections between people. “By bringing people together, there’s just this sense of, ‘wow, you get it. I am not alone,’� said Ferguson. “Often it gives them friends to journey with, because they’ve networked.� Each of these groups meets at Jones-Parkview Funeral Services, at 474 Hochelaga St. W, with attendance free and non-committal. The groups are entirely confidential, to encourage the feeling of a safe space. Jones-Parkview also hosts a Christmas gathering, the Mourning Star Service on Dec. 5, in recognition that times like the holidays can be difficult following a loss. They also participate in the world-wide candle lighting for bereaved parents on Dec. 8, at 7 p.m. For more information about bereavement support, check, or give them a call at 1 (306) 693-4644. “We want to support people in healing, healthy strategies,� said Ferguson.

A couple weeks ago, I touched on the importance of ensuring that you are covered in terms of insurance regarding your personal belongings as well as life/accident insurance. I also mentioned the eternal value of making Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life which brings a deep peace to your heart and soul that cannot be filled with anything else. As we’ve covered some of the basics such as physical, health and your spiritual life, let’s touch on something more tangible in our day-to-day lives that will help eliminate stress and bring order to our minds. I was in a meeting not too long ago when I heard a teaching that really struck a chord with me. Steve Atkins talked about the importance of developing policies within a family, challenging us to “make God’s principles your policy.� He mentioned how this simple procedure would benefit our mental health, simplify life and eliminate the decision-making process most of the time when difficult situations arise. Can you see how this would benefit your life? Let’s explore some of the ways I have implemented policies based on God’s principles in my life. Maybe this can jumpstart you in establishing some policies in your life and family. Without realizing what I was doing, I had already made several choices in my teen years that would essentially be life policies I’ve followed. Right off the top, I made a conscious decision to not drink, smoke or do drugs. This decision has made it so easy in situations that have arisen when it has been easily accessible. I can’t begin to mention how much stress was been eliminated in my life just by making that one decision. I don’t ever have to wonder if I should have a drink or not. Another policy I have made is to not lie. I choose to tell the truth no matter how hard it is. Again, this eliminates all temptation to cheat on my taxes, fudge the truth or have to backpedal and cover up a story I’ve told. In my marriage, I have chosen to not mention the word “divorce� or meditate on anything of that nature, especially when we are going through a rocky season. I choose to choose my husband over every other man, thinking pure thoughts. My policy is to be committed to my husband for life. These policies, based on God’s way of doing things, keep me looking straight ahead and bring peace to my mind because it is settled once and for all in my mind. This way, I will not have to revisit my decision each time I am faced with it. What about the times that the situations before us are so not black and white and we are posed with a difficult decision that isn’t covered specifically in scripture such as buying/selling land or a house, what job to take, where to live or who to marry? This is when you follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit. “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.� (Psalm 32:8) The writer of Isaiah (30:21) also offers encouragement: “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’� We will never go wrong when we heed His voice. Set aside time this week to meditate on the policies you wish to implement in your life and follow Holy Spirit as He leads you on your journey through life.

Highway 1 to receive federal-provincial funding for upgrades

MEALING, Clare David On Saturday, July 13th, 2019, Clare Mealing, loving husband and father of two, passed away at 82 after a courageous battle with cancer. Born April 7th, 1937 in Kelliher, SK to Eric and Florence Mealing. At age eleven, his family relocated to Moose Jaw, SK where Clare enjoyed his teens and made many lifelong friends. At 19, Clare joined the RCMP. His first posting, to Prince George, BC, proved to be his most important as there he met the love of his life, Shyrlee Ongman. Other postings included Red Deer, AB, Regina, SK and then to Manitoba in Dauphin, Amaranth and finally retired as a Sgt. in Minnedosa. In 1978, the family moved to Penticton, BC where they bought an orchard. Clare farmed and built the family home. Clare then began another career with Weyerhaeuser Canada and also continued farming. In 2003, he retired a second time, downsized and sold the farm. Clare was best known for his sense of humor, extreme kindness, “Clarisms” and “Mealing Modifications”. He is remembered fondly by everyone who had the pleasure of his friendship. He was a true gentleman and his family enjoyed his infinite love and loyalty. Clare will be deeply missed by his loving wife of 61 years, Shyrlee, his children Greg (wife Sandra Josland) and Lauralynn (husband Carl Shearer). He was “Grandad” to Garrett, Breton, Ayden and Hallee and “Great-Grandad” to Everett, Vaida and Griffin. He was predeceased by brothers; Ed, Ken, Glen and sister Pat. A local reception for family and friends will be held at the Moose Jaw Legion from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, September 14th. Flowers and cards gratefully declined. If you wish to make a donation in lieu, please direct them to the Canadian Cancer Society. “While we couldn’t love him long enough, we could not have loved him more.”

The federal and provincial governments are investing $75 million in highway enhancement projects throughout Saskatchewan, including investments to help rehabilitate Highway 1 in and around Moose Jaw. Both levels of government are providing $22.8 million to upgrade about 43 kilometres of Highway 1 and 37 kilometres of Highway 7, which encompasses Moose Jaw and the towns of Grenfell and Delisle. The federal government is contributing $7.83 million and the provincial government is contributing $15.4 million to this project. Total federal contributions to all highway improvement projects in Saskatchewan are $32.7 million; the provincial government is contributing $42.7 million. These investment contributions to well-planned infrastructure projects will make it easier to move people and products across the country, while supporting sustained economic growth and productivity for years to come, explained a joint federal-provincial news release. Investing in modern transportation infrastructure is critical to connecting communities, moving commercial goods to market and people safely and efficiently to their destinations, and building a strong economic future for all Canadians. The projects involve building four sets of passing lanes on Highway 4 and repaving about 220 kilometres of highways 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 14, 20, 21, 55 and 102. Once complete, these improvements will not only increase the safety and efficiency of Saskatchewan’s highways, but also help facilitate trade and support economic growth for years to come, said the news release. The Government of Canada is contributing $32.7 million to these projects through the New Building Canada Fund, Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component — National and Regional Projects while the province of Saskatchewan is providing $42.6 million. Through the Investing in Canada infrastructure plan, the Government of Canada has said they will be investing more than $180 billion over 12 years in public transit projects, green infrastructure, social infrastructure, trade and transportation routes, and Canada’s rural and northern communities. Of this funding, $26.9 billion is supporting green infrastructure projects, including $5 billion available for investment through the Canada Infrastructure Bank. More information about Canada’s long-term infrastructure plan can be found at www.infrastructure.gc. ca/plan/icp-publication-pic-eng.html.

intoconsumers your life! American maintain trends in meat buying practices By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express

Convenience and health interests AGRIMART continue to underEXPRESS pin trends in the American retail meat industry, according to the annual Power of Meat trends study. Meal kits introduce consumers to new meat cuts and kinds of meat with 40 per cent having purchased meal kits in the past year. Quality of the meat matters a lot in the decision to buy again. Seventy-one per cent agree that meal kits encourage them to try new meat and poultry items. Convenience-focused meat and poultry saw robust growth in 2018, including value added, 5.1 per cent growth; fully cooked, 2.5 per cent; and frozen, 2.2 per cent. Plant-based meat alternatives are a small but fast-growing market with higher interest in blended plant/meat items. Three-quarters of meat eaters integrate plant-based meat alternatives into their dinner line-up. This segment rings up $878 million in annual sales, up 19 per cent, with sales driven by Generation Z and millennials. Blended plant/meat items, such as mushroom burgers, have a higher and greater cross-population appeal, and can be a bridge to the attributes consumers look for, while keeping meat on the plate. Online grocery shopping grows but online meat purchases lag behind. Thirty-nine per cent of grocery shoppers supplement store visits with online buys with 45 per cent of online shoppers expecting to buy more online. One per cent of shoppers use online as their primary

source of groceries. Only 21 per cent have purchased meat or poultry online. Two-thirds of shoppers look for healthy options in their meat and poultry. Traits they seek include lean cuts and protein variety. Three of every 10 shoppers look for claims about the animal and the planet with younger buyers taking keener interest in these claims.
