Scottish dancing group continues the social tradition Larissa Kurz

Social dancing used to be the peak way to spend an evening out of the house, and though new technology beckons folks to stay in these days, the Moose Jaw Scottish Country Dancing group is still meeting once a week for that sweet social time. The group has been operating in Moose Jaw since 1978 and began again on Sept. 12 with their weekly meetups. Every Thursday at 7 p.m., dancers gather at the Moose Jaw Public Library to spend the evening dancing together. The Scottish country dance is very similar in structure to square dancing — in that dancers take a handful of universal steps and dance together as a group in a pattern. The difference between the two is that square dancers take oral cues from a caller, directing them on-the-go. Scottish country dancers have no caller and instead learn precise patterns that are unique to the Scottish style. Scottish country dancing can accommo-

Dancers don’t need to bring a partner and while Blanchard recommends wearing soft-soled shoes or slippers, there is no dress code. There is also no experience required — the group is happy to teach the core steps to beginners.

Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Saskatchewan Flag MLAs Column

Warren Michelson Moose Jaw North

Warren Michelson, MLA

This coming Sunday marks the 50th anniversary of the time our Saskatchewan flag was raised for the very first time. Our office will be celebrating this commemorative day on Friday, September 20 between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. I encourage you to stop in. Our Saskatchewan Flag has a very unique history as Saskatchewan had existed as a province for 64 years before it had an official flag. A special flag had been designed to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Saskatchewan, and the use of it was extended for Canada’s Centennial in 1967. Some expected that it would be adopted as the provincial flag, but instead there was a public contest to design a new provincial flag, which drew over 4,000 entries. Thanks to Gail Hapanowicz of Hodgeville, the story of T:4.85” our Saskatchewan flag has been made known in a much

greater way. She and her husband purchased the former school in Hodgeville to renovate as a Bed and Breakfast. There she came across information about the flag’s designer, Anthony Drake. Anthony, who had come from England, was a teacher in Hodgeville from 1967 to 1969 and had submitted 13 designs for the Saskatchewan flag contest. Anthony and his wife, Joan, had returned to England before actually seeing the flag fly over Saskatchewan. Gail contacted Anthony and he came to visit Saskatchewan in 2016 where he experienced the touching moment of seeing, for the first time, the flag he designed being raised. Anthony and his wife returned again this past summer in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Saskatchewan Flag. During his visit Anthony was able to meet Percy Schmeiser from Bruno, Sask., the only surviving member of the committee that selected the flag design. It is an interesting story on how the committee narrowed the 4,025 entries down to one. The entries were put into groups; ones with flowers, ones with grain elevators, ones with wheat, etc. From there they received input from the public. Most people chose the symbol of wheat. With that, the committee brought it from 4,025 down to ten. Anthony actually had two of his designs in the top ten. The flag is a symbol of pride and respect for the ideals

that are a representation of our province. Watching a Saskatchewan Roughrider fan wave a Rider flag demonstrates a very enthusiastic example of Rider pride. In a quieter way, I am often stirred as I see the Saskatchewan flag fly above the Legislative building, thinking of how it represents who we are as the people of Saskatchewan. The simple design of the southern prairies (yellow) and the northern forests (green) with the Saskatchewan coat of arms and the provincial flower emblem of the Western Red Lily encapsulates our province in its simplest, yet absolute detail. The representation of the fields and the forests speaks indeed of the hardworking, innovative and generous people of Saskatchewan, an identity we can be all proud of. Thank you to Gail for bringing the history of our Saskatchewan flag to life. On this 50th anniversary, let’s celebrate our flag and the people it represents with pride. In honour of the 50th anniversary, we invite you to stop at our office this Friday (September 20th) 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. to commemorate this special event.

Being dropped off in the wilderness and told to raise more than $50,000 to get home might seem daunting, but for Tereen Mowrey, she accomplished that objective — and more. Mowrey was one of five Saskatchewanians to participate in STARS (Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society) Air Ambulance’s fourth annual Rescue on the Prairies fundraiser on Sept. 5. All five participants were supposed to be dropped off by a STARS helicopter in the middle of the wilderness, with only a cellphone and STARS employee for help. They then had to phone friends, family and business associates to raise at least $50,000, although some had higher goals. However, due to fog in the area — the location was northeast of Saskatoon — the participants were instead trucked in. The five competitors were dropped off around 9 a.m. and picked up around 4:30 p.m. “It was amazing,” exclaimed Mowrey, who worked with STARS pilot Ian Bonnell. “As a group, we raised over $352,000 … . A lot of lives will be saved because of that.” Mowrey was “voluntold” to participate in the fundraiser, she chuckled. She had attended the event’s after-party supper the year before and was signed up to participate. The night before this year’s event, Mowrey and some of the participants gathered to strategize about how they would acquire the money. Three of the participants all had a mutual contact in the agriculture industry, so they made one call to that particular supporter during the day. Mowrey raised more than $53,000 but pointed out it is still possible to donate. Donations can be made at https:// She noted it wouldn’t have been possible to acquire the funds without the support of family, friends, the residents of Moose Jaw and the business community. This includes her employer Henderson Insurance, where she works as an account executive of corporate services. Her co-workers gave payroll deduction donations, while the company matched those. Mowrey thought the support was amazing. “It was nerve-wracking (to raise the funds) … ,” she said. “I was beyond thrilled to have met the goal and raised such a strong amount of money for the cause.” Mowrey and the others had to wear flight suits throughout the day, similar to STARS employees, which were hot to wear while operating on the prairies. The five business leaders also took part in several medical challenges. For example, they had to administer

Another challenge saw them respond to a simulated emergency where a dummy had fallen from a tree while cutting a branch and had severed a limb, broken its pelvis and had cuts to the head. They had to prepare the dummy for rescue by helicopter. “It really gave us more of an insight as to what they do and how they help people every day,” she said. “It was a lot of fun … and very rewarding.” Mowrey understands how important STARS is to Saskatchewan, especially to rural communities that don’t have easy access to hospitals. She pointed out the provincial government covers only 50 per cent of the organization’s costs, so it must fundraise the rest itself. The Moose Javian attends as many STARS events as she can. She has heard the stories of several Very Important Patients (VIPs) over the years, which makes her want to do more for the organization. Mowrey was asked during the after-party supper whether she would participate again and said she would but probably not for another five years.

It seems politics doesn’t always bring out the best in people; people and their ideas are as diverse as the fish in the sea. It brings factions together that are of the same mindset, but it does cause a little controversy in comparison. Why does everyone think politics is a popularity contest? That’s why individuals need to Joan Ritchie take the time to be informed and EDITOR to weigh the candidates/political parties out so that they can make a knowledgeable decision as to how they want this country to run. This also speaks to local politics. It seems most politicians are charismatic in their own right; that is probably a positive, considering their position, but you can’t run a marathon if you don’t have what it takes behind the scenes to get you there. There’s got to be some substance and conditioning required to make it happen; good looks and a smile won’t get you to the finish line. When it comes to stroking egos, I would rather side with the regular joes than be pretentious. It’s not the mayor’s city or the council’s city, it is corporately the people’s city…those that are taxpayers pave the way for the mayor, council and management to have a job. The powersthat-be here are answerable to the people of Moose Jaw and don’t let them tell you otherwise. They are supposed to represent you and me in their decisions, but are they? A little history…before becoming mayor, Fraser Tolmie was an employee of this very own media Moose Jaw Express and he seemed happy to get a paycheque from us. After he acquired his position and in light of his position as mayor, we offered him an opportunity for a regular column to speak about what the city was doing. As it turned out, the columns came in sporadically and it seemed he could very seldom follow through with his commitment to be a regular contributor. I guess there wasn’t much good to report? And as a media, we are a voice for the community… whether it is through a column, editorial or the people. There’s no doubt there are a lot of unhappy people voicing their concerns about decisions being made at City Hall and we are an avenue for them to state their concerns. Let me reiterate, in respect to politics, local politics should not be a popularity contest either. It is of my opinion that many who work in decision-making positions at City Hall may have good intentions but it is the back-door dealings and those that are done behind closed doors in secret that make them questionable. Therefore, everyone making decisions is under scrutiny. *** The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the position of this publication.

Larissa Kurz Every 40 seconds, one more life is lost to suicide, amounting to 800,000 people each year. Such startling statistics can put into perspective how so many Canadians are affected by suicide, and why suicide prevention is at the forefront of so many minds. Sept. 10 is known as World Suicide Prevention Day, which is meant to create international awareness about the issue and to spur more commitment for the prevention movement. The goal is to create a conversation about suicide. Suicide is one of the top ten leading causes of death in Canada for people of all ages, and although statistics often consider a number of factors — age, gender, marital status or mental health, to name a few — there is no single determinant cause. The World Health Organization is one of the organizations standing behind World Suicide Prevention Day, and they strongly advocate for an open and accessible approach to the topic. Supports that help individuals cope with feelings of helplessness or pain are paramount to addressing some of the largest risk factors of suicide. Mental illness is also an area of focus for suicide prevention movements, as often the two are linked with depression being a leading factor correlating with suicide. Moose Jaw’s local awareness group, Journey to Hope, works endlessly to provide to community with courses and training focused on suicide prevention. They believe that awareness and communication will foster hope in the community and give someone the support they may need, in whatever way they may be struggling with suicide. The group operates as a community chapter and a youth chapter. Across the world on Sept. 10, people lit a candle and placed it near a window, in remembrance of all those lost to suicide and all those affected. If you or someone you know is struggling with thoughts of suicide, please call the 24/7 Canada Suicide Prevention Service hotline at 1 (833) 456-4566 or text TALK to 686868.

Heavy-foot motorist drove 76 km/h in school zone in May, data shows Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The highest speed recorded in a Moose Jaw school zone this year occurred in May when a motorist zipped through a 40 kilometre-per-hour zone at 76 kilometres per hour. Furthermore, the highest speed recorded on Highway 1 — near the intersection of Highway 1 and Ninth Avenue Northwest, which is an 80 kilometre-per-hour zone — was 153 km/h in both January and June. The data is part of an information report from Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI), with the report looking at the results from the Crown corporation’s photo speed enforcement program from January to July of this year. There are speed enforcement cameras on the Ring An automated speed enforcement camera Road in Regina, on Circle Drive in Saskatoon, and on Highway 1 in operates in the school zone on Caribou Moose Jaw, while there are similar cameras in selected school zones Street near William Grayson School. Such in those communities. cameras are also located near Palliser In Moose Jaw, the speed enforcement cameras are located near WilHeights Elementary School and on High- liam Grayson School and Palliser Heights Elementary School. SGI indicates a violation occurs when a vehicle is speeding above way 1. Photo by Jason G. Antonio the threshold amount as determined by law enforcement. However, a violation may or may not result in the issuance of a ticket. During those seven months, there were 17,961 traffic violations on Highway 1 in the speed enforcement camera zone, the data shows. However, police issued 7,703 tickets to some of those heavy-footed motorists. There were 1,905 traffic violations in the two school zones in Moose Jaw from January to July, with police handing out 878 tickets to motorists who failed to obey the 40-km/h speed limit. All of these traffic tickets have translated into a pretty penny for the coffers of the City of Moose Jaw. City administration indicated in a second-quarter report recently that revenue from fines and penalties is up compared to the same point last year. Furthermore, this revenue item is on track to come in close to budget. The total budget for this area this year is pegged at $1.675 million. During the first six months of this year — from January to June — city hall received $815,698 in revenue from fines and penalties. However, due to the provincial government changing the funding formula with speed enforcement cameras, the City of Moose Jaw is likely to keep about $250,000 of that money. The photo speed enforcement program began as a pilot project in December 2014, after it was recommended by the all-party Special Committee on Traffic Safety. The program became permanent in September 2018.

Hot Pressure Washers!! Local charity raising funds for African AIDS support Larissa Kurz

The local chapter of the Grandmothers to Grandmothers charity group continues to call on the community’s support to raise funds for struggling children in Africa. All of the funds raised by the group are sent to the Stephen Lewis Foundation, who in turn passes on 90 per cent of every dollar directly to the numerous community-run programs and initiatives that the Foundation works on overseas. The Foundation has over 1,700 initiatives in 15 different African countries that work to support families struggling in the aftermath of AIDS. The goal of the organization is to help families who have been decimated with AIDS-related deaths, leaving grandparents raising sometimes several children while dealing with their own health problems. Alongside the counseling and health-related supports, the Foundation also works to ensure that women and girls

can stay in school, have access to food banks and medicine, and have support regarding sexual violence. The Grandmothers campaign is the fundraising branch of the Stephen Lewis Foundation, with over 200 groups in Canada who have raised over $33 million since 2003. The Moose Jaw chapter began in 2006, and has collected over $34,000 over the years. There is a handful of upcoming events set out for this year, including the recent steak supper that took place on Sept. 14. Member Marilyn Cropp Wall hopes to see them all go well. The group has got a raffle going on, with tickets priced at $2 and prizes like a queen-sized quilt, gift certificates, and a certificate for free car washes available to win. Bake sales, craft sales, and even holiday-themed events are on the group’s to-do list throughout the year. The Moose Jaw Grandmothers branch is

P & H acquires western elevators from Louis Dreyfus By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

Parrish and Heimbecker added 10 grain handling to the company’s 40 outlets with a purchase EXPRESS plants from Louis Dreyfus. Price wasn’t disclosed. Of the 10 locations, four are in Saskatchewan —Tisdale, Aberdeen, Wilkie and Kegworth — three in Alberta – Joffre, Lyalta and Rycroft — two in Manitoba at Virden and Rathwell, with one at Dawson Creek, B.C. “This is a win-win for farmers seeking a more competitive grain and crop inputs offering as well as for the stakeholders within P&H,” John Heimbecker, P&H CEO said in a news release. “Providing farmers with increased variety and more powerful combinations of crop input solutions is more important than ever. “Acquiring geographically strategic assets from a global leader like LDC makes us better and stronger…” The acquisition will make P&H Canada’s third largest grain handler. Dreyfus will keep the Port Cartier oilseed and grain facility and the $65 million Yorkton canola crushing plant. The 110-year-old Parrish and Heimbecker has 1,500 employees and does business in 15 countries. P & H already has a 52,000 tonne plant at Tisdale. The acquisition adds a 41,000 tonne plant there. The company operates the former Robin Hood Four Mill in Moose Jaw to buy grain. P&H operates grain elevators, feed mills, flour mills and port terminals.

Wall said the group has a personal goal to raise $5,000 this year, a task that could use some support from the community. “That would be a wonderful goal for us to strive for because we’re a small group. Small groups can make a difference,” said Wall. “We would love to have more people involved.” The group meets once a month at St. Aiden’s Church at 1:30 p.m. and the door is always open to new faces, said Wall.

Alberta interior building firm founder leaving puts shares in tatters Just three months ago Bizworld reviewed DIRTT Environmental Solutions Ltd. — DIRTT stands for Do It Right This Time — as a potential winner. Around the same time, DIRTT was trying to hide a degrading split from the public. The Calgary-based prefab manufacturer of building interiors saw a change at the top when one of three founders, Mogan Smed, left the company under clouded circumstances. Smed, aged 71, has a history of building great companies, starting in 1974 with Scandinavian Wood Industries, and later Smed International, sold for $300 million in 2002. The U.S. buyer later shut down Calgary operations. The company has filed a lawsuit for $17 million damages against Smed, who heads up a new startup Falkbuilt that also does custom interior building. About 40 DIRTT employees left with him. Smed claims he was ousted. The company claims he took business secrets and con-

fidential information with him. The lawsuit has yet to determine who did what to whom. Meanwhile shareholders have seen their stock value plummet from $9.23 to $5.90 since the May high — a 36 per cent decline. A public company that looked like a winner with super-efficient technology and patents, has suddenly turned into a loser. DIRTT employees jokingly call themselves dirtbags. Shareholders may want to call the management/directors by the same name. DIRTT counts all sorts of commercial and institutional sectors among clients including 188 Fortune 500 companies. Timing is critical. DIRTT sights are set on the $500 billion U.S. non-residential market with a three-year plan to expand. Part of that plan requires broader awareness and shareholder base with a U.S. stock exchange listing as well as the Toronto Stock Exchange.

All of that may be history now that the leading founder has left and is embroiled in a lawsuit with the company. Lawsuits of this nature tend to shy investors away, even hurt business. In early September DIRTT updated the fiscal 2019 outlook. Part of it reads: “Several factors have impacted revenue outlook for the second half of 2019, including revised timing of various projects from 2019 into 2020 and the loss of certain expected projects. These factors reinforce management’s belief that sales in 2019 have been affected more than previously thought by an immature go-to-market approach and an inadequately supported sales force working on a long sales cycle.” With revenue expected comparable to 2018, the company believes earnings for 2019 will be lower. “Adjusted gross profit percentage is expected to be lower than 2018 adjusted gross profit as a combined result of costs

associated with the now resolved tile warping issue and labour additions made in the second half of 2018.” No mention was made of the lawsuit or the break with Smed. Nor was any mention of the split made in January when a series of executive changes were announced. United States law requires mention of lawsuits in financial reports. Maybe we need a similar law in Canada. CAUTION: Remember when investing, consult your adviser and do your homework before buying any security. Bizworld does not recommend investments.

Library lecture gives tips on life after a job loss Larissa Kurz

As the first in a new series of financial literacy sessions at the Public Library, chartered professional accountant Juanita Pandya presented a strategy and some advice for those trying to bounce back after a loss of employment. The Library has partnered with CPA Canada to host these informational sessions, which means all of the advice offered comes straight from certified accountants. Pandya began her presentation by offering what she feels is the most important thing to remember following a job loss. “Losing your job is an emotional thing,” said Pandya. “It’s a harsh time in your life, but you can make it the most exciting time in your life by looking at your skills, looking at who you are as a person and what you want to do and accomplish for your future.” The first step following a job loss is to come to terms with being unemployed. Next, in order to make it through the next few months, begin constructing a budget. It’s important to know exactly how much expenses are each month, in order to make a plan to cover those expenses until another source of income is secured. Determine your fixed expenses — things like car payments, rent or mortgage payments, utility bills, taxes, and loans. Fixed expenses are things that are necessary for you to cover, creating the base for your budget. Then, spend

some time considering variable expenses, like unexpected medical needs, weekly groceries, or car repairs. Once you have a budget outlined, it’s time to begin looking at your debts and assets. The first step is to find out how much you will receive from Employment Insurance, and then to consider how you can supplement that amount to cover your budget. EI will offer benefits depending on the period of your last employment and other ongoing conditions. They can supplement up to 55 per cent of your insurable weekly earnings, up to a maximum of $562 per week. Pandya also suggested looking into pulling out RRSPs or tax-free savings accounts, digging into emergency savings, or even borrowing money on a life insurance policy if you’ve had it long enough. She also noted that while creating a budget is a good idea, it only helps if you are able to actually follow through with it. About 70 per cent of Canadians admit they have a budget in their head, and only 37 per cent follow that budget. The next step is to deal with any debt you have incurred. Talking to a debt counselor is the best course of action, and many even do free consultations to discuss your options. Debt is normal, with nearly 80 per cent of Canadians living with credit card debt that is unmanageable.

She also dispelled a common myth about bankruptcy as well, saying that declaring bankruptcy will not result in losing your house or car, as those are considered necessities. While you are doing all of this, you should also be thinking about finding a new source of income. For some, that means preparing a resume and cover letter and beginning the search. For others, it could mean some career considerations, such as whether you should seek more education or whether you should consider contracting your skills as a small business. Pandya suggested seeking career counseling if you have more questions than answers. Pandya also suggested that people should look into preparing for this situation as well, for the future. Having emergency supports that would last about six months is a good idea because when sudden unemployment happens, it is a tough time to navigate. “You don’t have a plan, and emotionally, you don’t have time to think about a plan,” said Pandya. “[The key is] to just ask for help. There’s nothing wrong with that.” Those looking for more resources can check the job loss section of the Government of Canada website or the CPA Canada website.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Council decision cheered; dogs will be happy at home

It is time again to share some opinions on a variety of topics: Thank you to the four members of city council who decided to retain Crescent Park as an ornamental and passive park, rather than as a speedway for pooches and cyclists. Coun. Chris Warren argued Joyce Walter passionately for leashed dogs For Moose Jaw Express and cyclists to roam through the park, based on the argument that parks in other cities allow such activities without major incidents. He also spoke about the idea of increased use of the park and the promotion of health and wellness, getting exercise while cycling and walking the dogs. However, even more eloquent was Coun. Heather Eby who pulled no punches in speaking against dogs in the park, suggesting she wouldn’t want to picnic where a dog had recently peed on the grass. Nor did she buy the argument that dog owners always scoop the poop left behind by their animals. She said there is evidence all over town that not all dog owners are conscientious about scooping, and even in

the dog parks, the poop goes uncollected. And so dogs lost, and so did cyclists. They are welcome elsewhere in the city but not in Crescent Park. While some will say Moose Jaw residents are too entrenched in the olden days, most people I’ve talked to are satisfied that council made the correct decision. ••• The Moose Jaw Cultural Centre was rocking recently with the return of Megan Nash to the local stage — bringing with her Scotch & Water — not at the bar, but on stage. Scotch & Water is a band she met on a tour of Germany and through conversations a tour of Canada was arranged. Of course Moose Jaw was on the schedule and the audience in the Mae Wilson theatre was energetic and appreciative of the many musical influences represented on stage. The highlight of the evening was hearing Nash perform her new and her familiar songs, as well as some cover music during the 2 1/2 hour show. Over the years she has grown as a performer and is at ease on stage, keeping the audience laughing and nodding in approval at her stories and her music. After the concert, one could only hope she will be back soon, perhaps with another band she’s met along the path of her musical tours.

••• Does Canada need a 40-day federal election campaign? I suppose it could go on for years at a time as it does in the United States, but I am sure others join me in already being tired of the political baffle gab that was under way even before the prime minister and governor general met for tea. Some will suggest Canada is such a vast country that it takes 40 days and 40 nights to crisscross the land to spread the message — and that long for one or more of the leaders to get caught with foot-in-mouth disease. This is, however, possibly the first time an election campaign had a shot gun start even before the campaign started. I should conclude by saying: “may the best party win” but the best party for whom? One can only hope that some of us will be happy when we arise on Oct. 22.

Old landmark LutheranByChurch features elaborate stained glass Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express When Swedish settlers homesteaded in eastern Saskatchewan during the 1800s, locating a church site was one of the first community projects. The site, south of the village of New Stockholm, which was named for the largest city in Sweden, saw the first church service in 1889. Growth in the community led to building one of the most elaborate rural churches of the time in 1919. The Stockholm Lutheran Church opened in 1921. Bricks for the building were hauled from Stockholm, six kilometers north. Now a municipal heritage property, the landmark church architecture features a typical Lutheran style with a central bell tower and eight-sided spire. The roof has been redone but the tower is still the old shingles. Not typical for Lutheran churches of the time, this structure has a cruciform layout and small rose windows in the bell tower. Two large stained-glass windows – Jesus Knocking at the Door and The Good Shepherd — are believed to have been made in the United States. Stained glass windows decorate the inside and are outside features. Stained glass Church services are still held every Sunday at 10 a.m. Ron Walter can be reached at

Classes and exhibits toLarissa fillKurz this fall at the MJMAG The Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery recently held their fall open house, to preview the many classes, collections, and events coming to the gallery in the next few months. The list of available classes this year includes a number of different mediums to be explored with some familiar local names. Edie Marshall will offer a class on basic color mixing with acrylic paints on Oct. 5, returning for a class on acrylic landscape painting on Nov. 16-17. Charles Buchanan will offer a few classes on drawing the human form, the first a week-long experience from Oct. 6-20, followed by a threepart class on Nov. 24 and Dec. 1 and 8. Christy Schweiger will teach a clay platter and bowl-making session on Nov. 27 and Dec. 4, and Sheri Chamberlain will explore the art of macramé on Nov. 30. Geri Ann Siwek has an all-day class working with acrylic mediums and mixed-media

processes on Nov. 23. Each class has a differing cost, and details on how to register can be found on the MJMAG’s website, alongside a full calendar of available classes. To begin the fall, the MJMAG has organized a tour of Joe Fafard’s Julienne Atelier Foundry in Pense on Sept. 21, as a fundraiser to purchase and display the 7-foot tall sculpture Peggy as a permanent piece in the MJMAG’s collection. The annual Moostletoe Artists Studio

Tour will be returning again this year on Oct. 19, to preface Moose Jaw’s famous Christmas in October celebration with guided tours through ten different studios of artists around the community. With summer coming to a close, the MJMAG’s current exhibit — A Prairie Vernacular — will make its way to Medicine Hat, and the gallery will be filled with works from three new exhibitions beginning Oct. 10. Russel Mang, a Moose Jaw artist, will

feature his collection titled Time, Presence, Place which explores the familiar landscape of Wakamow and the Moose Jaw area with paintings that interact with the medium of drawing. Riverhurst artist Edie Marshall will join Mang’s collection with her own exploration of space in her collection titled Terrain, which features one thousand small oil portraits of scenery she captured originally in a digital medium. Field Portraits of Contemporary Western Culture is a photography exhibit that focuses on the subject of rural lifestyle and cowboy culture. The collection has been curated by Wayne Baerwaldt, and features work from photographers from Saskatchewan to the United States. All three exhibits will be on display until Jan. 5, with an opening reception for Terrain and Time, Presence, Place on Oct. 10 and an opening reception for Field Portraits on Oct. 18.


Albertans face austerity, labour disputes if premier adopts McKinnon report Since the Leduc oil strike of 1949, Alberta’s wealth has grown, wealth that allowed politicians to spend like drunken sailors until the oil price crash five years ago. The spending hasn’t stopped, even as the oil royalties wilted like a summer rose on a day. by Ron Walter 40-degree Faced with a need to justify financial austerity Alberta Premier Jason Kenney appointed a blue-ribbon panel to study the issue. The panel, headed by fiscally conservative former Saskatchewan NDP finance minister Janice McKinnon, recently reported with 25 recommendations. If Kenney adopts only the main recommendations, life for Albertans, accustomed to lots of government spending, will become relatively harsh. The panel, backed up by KPMG studies, found the Alberta government spends more per capita than comparable governments in B.C., Ontario and Quebec with often poorer outcomes. If Alberta per capita spending equaled the average of the three comparable provinces Alberta would save $10.4 billion a year. In hospital care, Alberta spends $5,132 per capita — one third more than the next highest province of B.C. Health outcomes are no better than in the other three provinces. Alberta has lowest life expectancy, highest infant mortality rates, highest death rate from cardiovascular disease, highest rates of suicide and longest wait for treatment. Alberta doctors and nurses get paid more than elsewhere, with growth in physician spending averaging 7.6 per cent since 2009. In education, Alberta spends $11,121 per student, onesixth more than the next highest B.C. Alberta universities are the most reliant on provincial grants at 54 per cent of revenues. In social services annual 2.9 per cent growth in spending is comparable to the other three provinces. At this rate the annual Alberta government deficit, now 3.59 per cent of the budget, will almost double in four years to an amount that could hire 30,000 teachers or fund 35,000 long-term care beds. Something has to give in the absence of new revenue sources or higher oil prices. Slow global oil demand and growing use of alternate energy put a crimp on higher oil

prices. The panel recommends “decisive action.” That action includes reducing the education portion of the budget by almost one-third to match the 17 per cent of the budget in neighboring B.C. A $600 million expense reduction for four years amounts to 1.2 per cent but suggested reductions in capital grants and investment would hit hard. For 25 years, says the panel report, growth in Alberta government spending has exceeded the other 10 provinces. It is doubtful that Kenney can accomplish these reductions and stay popular by next election in 2023. The deficit could be obliterated with two measures — a sales tax and addressing the lowest personal and corpo-

rate income tax rates in Canada. Kenney just cut corporate income taxes. Doing either of these measures is political suicide. Not having a sales tax is a matter of extreme pride for Albertans. Deep cuts to health care and education salaries and capital projects are in store if Kenney pushes forward with plans to balance the budget by next election. Labour turmoil, parental complaints and health care disputes will become the norm in what was once Canada’s wealthiest province.

New outdoor classroom coming to William Grayson School Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Students at William Grayson School will soon have a new classroom in which to learn about the natural world and much of what nature has to offer. An outdoor classroom is being built on the west side of the building, located on Caribou Street West. Cornell Design and Landscaping began digging the shallow hole on Sept. 4, with the intention of installing two circular rock benches on which students can sit. School officials hope the classroom is completed either this weekend or early next week. “We are looking forward to it and we’re excited to get using it,” said vice-principal Robin Heshka. School administration wants students to experience and explore the outdoors more often, she explained. Being able to

use nature to teach students can be the best learning tool. For example, in science class students could learn about the seasons, or rocks and minerals. “To be able to go outside and have hands-on experiences and hands-on exploring, you can’t get better than that,” Heshka said. “We also want it for simple things. Right now the weather is beautiful. Who wants to be stuck inside a classroom all day when you can be learning outside? (We want to) take advantage of the weather we do have.” The outdoor classroom is being shaped in a circle so the school can tie in its Circle of Courage program, which is about youth development and ensuring emotionally healthy youths have a sense of

belonging, mastery, independence and generosity. The teacher would also be able to join the students in a “circle family” formation. The school and its school community council have been raising funds for the outdoor classroom for more than seven

years, Heshka said. There have been many fundraising activities, such as hot lunches and movie nights. She was unsure how much the project cost — Heshka has been at the school for two years — but pointed out the Prairie South School Division matched all the money the school raised.

Local Search and Rescue group welcoming volunteers for fall Larissa Kurz

Moose Jaw Search and Rescue team member Fern Paulhus finds that being a part of the volunteer rescue force has a great impact on the community, and he hopes that more of Moose Jaw will consider joining. “The more members we have to come out on an actual lost individual, [the better the chance of success],” said Paulhus. “If we’ve only got five or six people and it’s a big area to search, verses if we’ve got two hundred people, you’re guaranteed we’re going to bring them home alive.” The local SAR team is made up entirely of community volunteers, who are open to taking the mandatory training that certifies them to be part of the emergency resources available to the Moose Jaw Police Service, RCMP, and Emergency Measures Organization. This team is largely a force equipped for a ground search, although Paulhus said a few members are certified for dive searches if the local or provincial authorities are in need of assistance. Each fall, the SAR hosts an information session to present the details of what they do to interested potential members. This year, they will be meeting on Oct. 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the South Hill Fire Hall. The SAR usually has about 30 people on the roster each year and during an average year, answers anywhere between

three to five calls to action throughout the year. The worst year, Paulhus recalled, saw seventeen calls. The SAR can only be dispatched at the request of the police force or EMO, and because of that, Paulhus can’t quite pin down the exact amount of hours required to be a part of the group. “We usually try and tell people to give us what you can,” said Paulhus. Mandatory training sessions and exercises do take place throughout the year, along with non-mandatory events. The SAR does most of its work in an educational capacity, through community outreach. “We do a lot of what we call preventative search and rescue, which is going out into the community and preparing them for in-case this or that happens, and how they can best help themselves out,” said Paulhus. Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to stop in at the informational session and learn about the SAR. The group asks for a one-time $60 joining fee and a criminal record check prior to acceptance, but by participating in the group’s fundraisers throughout the year, all mandatory training required will be covered. “Come out, have a listen, see what it’s all about. We’ll talk about what kind of commitment it is,” said Paulhus.

Robotics classes available to schools across Sask., including Moose Jaw Larissa Kurz

Students in school divisions across Saskatchewan could be able to take a Robotics and Automation class, announced the Ministry of Education last Thursday. The robotics class has been cleared for implementation after piloting in 18 school divisions last year and will now be offered to school divisions for students in grades 7-12. Robotics and Automation is part of the roster of Practical and Applied Arts electives. Content from the Robotics curricula can be included in PAA courses for students at the grade 7-9 level, and high school students can take the 10-, 20-, or 30-level Robotics and Automation course to fulfill their PAA elective requirements. Prairie South School Division piloted the course as a part of their Virtual School last year, with a test class of five students, and will be continuing to offer Robotics as an online distance education course this year with a limit of 10 students. By offering the course online, Prairie

South finds that even a handful of students interested in a class can have it available to them. Vanier Collegiate also piloted the course last year, at a grade 10 level, and have expanded this year to offer both a 10- and 20-level physical class with a capacity of 20 students.

I find myself living in a snow globe by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor The floaters in my eyes are causing me heartburn. Just over a year ago I started getting these very bright flashes in one of my eyes whenever I shifted my eyes in any direction. After about 2 weeks of this I made an appointment with my optometrist, who then made an appointment to see an ophthalmologist. Long story short, I was diagnosed with Posterior Vitreous Detachment (PVD). While using the word “detachment” and “eye” in the same sentence may be unsettling and, in many cases, emergent, I was assured that this is something that is not usually dangerous, would not cause permanent blindness and was a relatively common occurrence at my age ( I really hate anything that is “normal for my age”).

While the detachment involved my retina to some extent, it was not the retina that was detaching. That of course would be an emergency situation with surgery done lickety-split. This was concerning the vitreous, the gel-like substance that fills the inside of the eye. At the back of the eye, this vitreous attaches to the retina, or at least it is supposed to. Some studies report that PVD can affect nearly one in four persons in their 50’s. Lucky me. For many, these PVD’s occur without any symptoms and for others the symptoms are mild. Flashes and floaters, floaters and flashes. When my flashes subsided after a few weeks, the floaters showed up. And boy did they ever. Floaters are a common occurrence after a PVD, and for most (85%), the floaters are mild and subside in the first 3 months, or the brain just starts to ignore them. For me however, lucky me, I feel like I am living in a snow globe. What has made things even worse is that my other eye decided to get in on this PVD party as well. Double snow globes. Merry Christmas. So, what does all this have to do with heartburn? I began researching (aka as Googling) treatment for PVD. Laser treatment, while exists in a few private

“We’ve had a robotics club that’s been building robots for a while, about four years, and from that, we’ve had the interest [in offering a class],” said Vanier instructor Daniel Atkins. Vanier has plans to expand the course next year to offer a 30-level curriculum, and Atkins would like to see high school

robotics grow enough to host a battle-bot tournament to show off the student’s creativity and skill. “We’re trying to build not just kits, but robots that can hopefully do what we want them to do, if we’ve got it right, so it’s challenging,” said Atkins. The class includes skills like coding and electrical work and offers students an educational opportunity that is relevant in the current science and technology climate. The offered curriculum was developed in partnership with a number of experts and organizations in the province, including Saskatchewan Polytechnic — who offers many programs that relate to robotics, including the Electronic Systems Engineering Technology course — and SaskCode. The decision on whether to offer a Robotics and Automation course is determined by the board of education within each school division.

clinics across North America, is not a proven fix for floaters. It may zap the floaters into smaller floaters, but I didn’t want to let someone play an expensive game of Asteroids in my eyes. The floaters can be sucked out with the entire vitreous, but this comes with an even higher risk that may outweigh the benefit. So now I am looking at the pineapple for salvation. I came across a study that was published this year in the Journal of American Science that found that subjects who ingested pineapples daily for 3 months reported fewer floaters related to posterior vitreous detachment. It is thought that the enzymes in pineapples (specifically Bromelain) many react positively with the fibrous-structured floaters. Bromelain is available in capsule form, extracted from pineapples, in most health food stores. While taken daily with meals, this enzyme has led to some moderate burning in my belly, but I am willing to give it a try. And so, my little case study begins.

Parkinson SuperWalk a success once again

Fourth annual event builds on more than $40,000 raised over last three years Randy Palmer- Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw fourth edition of the Parkinson SuperWalk has quickly evolved into one of the top fundraisers in the city. This year the annual event took place on Saturday, Sept. 7 in Wellesley Park in Wakamow Valley, drawing close to 100 walkers and supporters looking to build on the more than $42,000 raised through the first three years of the charity walk. “We’re really happy with that,” said SuperWalk organizer Sandra Luchia. “And we have a really good, strong support group in town that sees their family and friends come out and support them. So that’s the basis for today, doing what we can to raise awareness while raising a bit of money at the same time.” Each Walk features a Local Hero, with Richard Molde chosen as the local representative due to his fundraising efforts and longtime support, in spite of his own battle with Parkinson’s Disease. The Molde family annually holds a Pedal for Parkinson’s event at their summer cottage, with the fundraiser having brought in thousands of dollars to the SuperWalk over the years. “We really wish he could have been here, they’ve done so much for us and their family has been so supportive,” Luchia said. While the final fundraising total for this year was unavailable as of press time, Luchia was certain it would be just as impressive as in years past – and ideally, will

The Moose Jaw Parkinson Canada support group meets the fourth Monday of the month from September to June at 1:30 p.m. at the Hillcrest Apostolic Church, offering another avenue for education and assistance with the

disease. “Anyone out there who knows a loved one who has been diagnosed or yourself having been diagnosed, I’d encourage you to join the support group,” Luchia said. “We don’t just sit around and mope, it’s all about being positive, we watch videos and things like that, do what we can to educate people and help them cope with Parkinson’s.” For more information on Parkinson’s Disease, check out and for more information on the local support group, contact Kelly Pierson at 306-5454400 or at

Vanier Valhalla a celebration of welcome week at local high school Seniors take starring role in welcoming new Grade 9s to Vanier Collegiate Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

When the second Valhalla was held at Vanier Collegiate four years ago, the young Grade 9s taking part in their first week of high school were undoubtedly wide-eyed and excited for the new adventures ahead of them. Those Grade 9s are today’s Grade 12s, and they took their turn at leading the annual welcome week celebration at Vanier last Thursday morning. Participants were sorted into one of four groupings, named after the houses from the Harry Potter series of books – Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Raven- Vanier seniors perform a dance to kick off the Valclaw. From there, it was all about fun competition and halla welcome week event. games, ranging from chants and dancing to a massive rock-paper-scissors competition. The event included a GymBlast filled with activities in the afternoon before moving out to Wakamow Valley on Friday morning for an Amazing Race Adventure.

The rock-paper-scissors competition got plenty intense as the semifinalists and finalists were determined… House Gryffindor members break out their chant.

Historical war-related art exhibit began in Moose Jaw Larissa Kurz

The Keepsakes of Conflict: Trench Art and Other Canadian War-related Craft exhibit is just finishing its appearance at the University of Calgary’s Founder’s Gallery, but the historical exhibit was originally conceptualized at the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery before embarking on its multi-year tour. Guest curated by former MJMAG curator Heather Smith in 2016, the exhibit began taking shape as an examination of war-related craft for the 100th anniversary of the First World War. The term “trench art” denotes an admittedly limited perception of the types of work that Smith included in the final collection, as many of the pieces were not created in the trenches specifically. Rather, the term is a catch-all phrase used to indicate any craft or artwork created by soldiers, civilians, prisoners of war that is related to an armed conflict or its consequences. Many pieces feature materials one would expect from the trenches — spent bullet casings, for instance or used socks discarded by soldiers. Many other pieces are more intricate, such as the ship inside a light bulb crafted by a prisoner of war during their time held by enemy forces. Artwork from Canadian prisoners of war is far less common than artwork from German prisoners of war, as German prison camps were tighter with resources especially near the end of the war. Some pieces were made as souvenirs for soldiers to bring home for loved ones. Others are carved statues done as a rehabilitation therapy for veterans or the wounded. One of the feature pieces in the Calgary leg of the tour

The exhibit was curated at the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery and debuted here in 2016 as a fall exhibit. is a painted cowhide story robe telling the story of Corporal Mike Mountain Horse during the First World War. The story robe is the original, on loan from the Esplanade Arts and Heritage Centre in Medicine Hat, AB. The difference between trench art and works by official war artists is that while the artists were attempting to make their audience feel the experience of war, from a removed standpoint, items considered trench art are instead made out of the personal experience of war — with no deeper, psychological intent. “It’s a fascinating exhibition because it brings together artifacts from all over the country, from coast to coast,”

said Jennifer McRorie, curator at the MJMAG. “It gives a real, personalized view of how those soldiers were processing the experience they went through, and you get the feeling that they were really yearning for home.” Smith was intrigued by that concept and thus built the collection because she wanted to showcase the story of war through a different lens: less historic and more personal, emotional, practical. “Heather was a curator that liked to create shows around little-known histories, and there hasn’t been a lot written, especially in Canada, about trench art,” said McRorie. “She always wants to find untold stories.” The traveling collection debuted at the MJMAG in 2016, before moving on to feature in Red Deer, AB and Fort St. John, B.C. in 2017, and then in Medicine Hat, AB, Thunder Bay, ON, and Swift Current in 2018. The exhibit was supposed to finish after its time in Swift Current, but continued requests prompted the MJMAG to extend its tour. “I think people found that show really fascinating, and it’s great that it’s traveled for as long as it has,” said McRorie. “The Founder’s Gallery in Calgary [told] us they had great responses, a lot of interest from their audiences, so it’s good to hear that people are connecting to it in the communities it’s gone to.” The MJMAG website features detailed information about the exhibit, with more background on the pillars of trench art featured. The Keepsakes of Conflict show will continue on its extended tour to the Fort la Reine Museum in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba.

Icelandic festival celebrates 130-year-old “New Iceland” heritage By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

Imagine having to leave your homeland because of volcano ash that covered the land and destroyed crops. That’s what happened to Iceland in the 1870s. Needing to immigrate they chose Canada. After living briefly in Ontario they settled in Manitoba, securing an exclusive 36 mile shoreline along the west bank of Lake Winnipeg. In 1875, a Hudson Bay Company freight-

er brought the first group, 200 Icelandic settlers, up the lake from Winnipeg. The lake was so stormy the barge with settlers and their possessions was cut loose to drift ashore. Unprepared for winter with little livestock or anything else, the settlers lived in tents borrowed from the Hudson Bay Company. About 50 died of scurvy and exposure that winter. The next year a smallpox epidemic took 100 lives and almost wiped out neighbouring First Nations. Helped by the First Nations, the new settlers learned to make home-made nets to fish. The farmers struggled but prospered along the lake from Gimli (the Icelandic name for paradise) north to Riverton and Arborg. Building a school was their first community project. Icelanders believed strongly in education. An early historian observed just about every one of the pioneers had a library of 40 or more books. The “free state” ended in 1881 when they joined Manitoba. In 1897 the federal gov-

ernment ended the exclusive Icelandic settlement. Manitoba’s Icelandic population of 20,000 is the largest outside Iceland. The ethnic group’s influence on the province resulted in a university department of Icelandic Language and Literature. Some settlers moved after a religious controversy between two branches of the Lutheran Church with settlements in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska and North Dakota. One two-year-old moving to North Dakota was Vihjalmur Stefansson, later a famous Arctic explorer. One North Dakota group returned to settle in Saskatchewan in the Quill Lakes area – Wadena, Elfros, Foam Lake, Kandahar and Kuroki. About 10,000 Saskatchewan residents are of Icelandic heritage. Every year Canadians of Icelandic heritage gather at Gimli (paradise) for a celebration of their culture and language. The 130-year-old festival has transformed into a four-day festival with many non-Icelandic events in this resort town. One senior of Icelandic descent said only the last two days were really about Icelan-

dic culture. Attractions, besides the museum, include murals on the concrete sea walls protecting the harbour from stormy waters, Icelandic food, music and crafts. A Viking village depicted ancient weaving, cooking, armoury skills and wooden bowls being carved on a wood lathe. Mock Viking wars left scars on the combatants. Two armies of about 12 men each charged each other. Improve the helmets, take away the spears and shields and you have a version of North American football. Tourism, farming and fishing aren’t the only industries. A gigantic Diageo distillery produces 97 million bottles of whisky a year, mostly Crown Royal. The RCAF training base, closed in 1971, remains an airport and is an industrial park anchored by a glider school, marine operation, and school division. The base residential section has become a condominium corporation. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

50 years of Sukanen Ship Museum activities celebrated at threshing bee By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

What started out as a dream the year Saskatchewan got its flag and the year Woodstock changed the music world was celebrated when the Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village and Museum observed 50 years of operation. The Moose Jaw Antique Auto Club sought a place to restore and perhaps display their collections, Evan Davis told the dedication ceremony. After unsuccessful negotiations with the city, the club bought a place 13 km south of Moose Jaw. They built the first building, now the museum office, “never imagining it would expand the way it has.” Members have always been made up of some “interesting characters” who didn’t always get along but managed to get the job done. The late Dick Meacher was a central figure and became known as the contact for the museum. “He was an excellent scrounger. He could repair or fix anything.” That first-year donations to the museum included a W-12 tractor and a threshing machine. The club decided to have a

threshing bee for a fundraiser and has had one every year since. The museum grew as local people looked for a place to preserve their buildings Another of the “interesting characters” Moon Mullin heard about a ship lying on the Prairie near Macrorie and was given $500 to investigate. With that money Mullin was able to bring the ship to the museum. Another expert scrounger, Mullin “could talk anybody into anything.” And he brought the body of ship builder Tom Sukanen from the North Battleford cemetery to lie beside the ship.

In 1977, the restored ship was dedicated, and the museum name changed from Prairie Pioneer Antique Auto Club to the Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village and Museum. The women’s auxiliary, Bonnets and Dusters, ran the concessions and made enough money to keep things going. And they built the tradition of home-made pies at threshing bees. Fifty years of museum growth came from hard work and dedication by the volunteers with a collection of 100,000 artifacts, over 40 buildings and over 200 vehicles and machines.

Jonathon Potts, Tourism Saskatchewan marketing director, said this museum has become a significant provincial tourist attraction outside of the two big cities. The museum development shows “the small-town community spirit of Saskatchewan.” Potts remembers visiting the museum often as a child growing up in Swift Current. “As far as I was concerned it was always there.” Museum president Gord Ross said the all-volunteer museum has built a village — a village that should be put on the provincial map. Fifty-year membership plaques were presented to Elsie Meacher, wife of the late Dick Meacher, Garry Davis, Bob Jones, Charlie Meacher and Andy Sentes. Threshing bee demonstrations ranged from quilting, rope making blacksmithing, square dancing to reaping, binding, ploughing, hand threshing to threshing with three sets of machines.

International Harvester dealership building opens at Sukanen Museum By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

A replica dealership from one of America’s top farm machinery makers recalls the heyday of the International Harvester Company (IHC) at the Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village and Museum. “We’re proud to have this building,” museum president Gord Ross told the dealership grand opening. When the IHC Collectors Chapter 38 approached the museum with the project “we jumped at the opportunity.” Third generation International Harvester farmer Darald Marin of Chapter 38 noted the dealership plan began years ago after the Algott family of Derwent, Alberta offered the complete array from the IHC dealership they closed in 1985 if someone put up a suitable building. “Hopefully here in Moose Jaw it will be preserved in perpetuity. “They had an International dealership since the 1920s. There were three generations when they closed out in 1985 when Case amalgamated with International.” Displays aren’t complete and will be changed regularly from the “reserve of stuff we have.” The family had a good dealership until closed out by sale of IHC to a competitor. Marin explained why International Harvester is such an industry icon and why the company failed. Born from the merger in 1902 of the McCormick Harvesting Company, Deering Harvester Company and a few smaller companies, IHC became the world leader in farm machinery manufacturing. “From about 19 teens until the end of the ’40s was the heyday for International Harvester. They couldn’t do anything wrong.” “International did some terrific things” from the 1923

Darald Marin FarmAll row crop tractor that could turn on a field without backing up, to the first hydrostatic drives on swathers and combines. The IHC diesel tractor in 1936 was the first by any major farm machine maker. “It took the competition 13 years to catch up,” Marin said. Three pivotal management mistakes led to a forced sale in 1984. After the Second World War Harvester decided to build the biggest crawler tractor in the world but the sales-oriented board was too hot to sell the new TD-24. “They failed miserably. International had to go out and hand re-build all these TD-24s. They lost lots of customer support.” Through the 1950s all farm machine companies were just tweaking models from the 1940s until John Deere introduced a six-cylinder tractor. “International in haste to provide a competitive machine — 560s, 460s —introduced them without adequate re-

search and development again. They sold a humungous number. They were good looking, did the job. They failed miserably after they had a few hours on them.” IHC again lost cash when it hand-rebuilt these tractors. “In 1959 IHC lost first place position in ag sales, a position they never regained.” The third straw for IHC was a lengthy strike in 1960. The board saw this as an opportunity to sell excess inventory during the strike. Once the strike was over the farm economy had gained strength but IHC had no cash to keep up and started selling subsidiaries like the truck division. Now the IHC logo has been removed from equipment, replaced by Case New Holland logos. Ron Walter can be reached at


Sukanen family members visit Sukanen Ship museum threshing bee By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

Six members of the Sukanen family visited the Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village and museum during the threshing bee. “This is my third time here. I was here 25 years ago,” said Clyde Sukanen, who bears a physical resemblance to photos of Tom Sukanen. This time he brought his wife, brother, two sisters, and brother-in-law with him. “We came for the big threshing bee and the activities. They’d never been here. I talked to them a lot about it. I said: ‘You got to see it.’” His brother Carl was impressed with restoration of the ship that Finnish settler Tom Sukanen built on the Prairie near Macrorie with the intent to sail back home via the Saskatchewan River/Churchill River network to Hudson Bay. “It’s really well done,” said Carl. “From a

June Sukanen, Bob Meredith, Carl Sukanen, Shirley Meredith, Clyde Sukanen, Sheila Sukanen distance it looks small but when you get inside here it’s big.” Also impressed, Clyde said it was nice the ship was preserved. “It shows how unselfish Tom was that he saw this free land here and he wanted to build a ship

to sail over there and bring people back.” The group is uncertain what relation they are to Tom Sukanen. “We don’t really know,” said Clyde. “(Tom) came through Ironwood, Michigan and that’s where my dad was born

in 1894. Sukanens were over there and from there they moved to Marengo (Wis.) where we lived on the farm. Tom went to Minnesota. “Our father was 52 when I was born in 1956. He still had 13 kids. We grew up in a family of 13 kids but three died. There was 10 of us – five boys five girls. “My dad didn’t want us to become farmers. Seven of us ended up being teachers.” The Sukanen family recently had a family reunion with 124 of 144 members from various states attending. “There is so much to see here” in the one day they had in Moose Jaw.

From The Kitchen

Li fe i n 1943 c o n f i r m e d w i t h b o o k’s re c i p e s In 1943 homemakers wore house dresses and aprons with which to keep their clothes free from flour and other kitchen spills. Kitchens were spotless and meals were prepared for sitdown family enjoyment of the food prepared. And while the man of the house reclined with the newspaper or listened to the radio, other family members might be called on to help the woman of the house with the dishes. A cookbook, Food For the Body, For the Soul, published in 1943, documents that “home is not just a place where we eat and sleep but is the endeared dwelling place where domestic love, rest, peace and shelter from evil are known and enjoyed.” This week’s recipes come from this 1943 cookbook. ••• Russian Soup (Borscht) 1 bunch beets 1 cup tomatoes, fresh or canned 4 cups water 1 small onion 1/2 lb. breast of beef 1 tbsp. lemon juice 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 tsp. salt 4 eggs

Opinion/Commentary: Closed Doors and Emails by Robert Thomas

On Tuesday May 15, 2018 Moose Jaw City Council held a special Executive Committee Meeting. According to the agenda, the meeting was held in-camera exempted from being held public under Section 94 (2) of the Cities Act as content protected under Part III of the Local Authority Freedom Of Information And Protection Of Privacy Act. It is just one of dozens of in-camera and behind closed doors meetings held since the October 2016 civic election where the majority of Council members promised to reduce or eliminate the number of secret meetings. Too much secrecy at City Hall was a major campaign issue in October 2016. It forced former Mayor Deb Higgins to pledge to open more Council business to the public and media. Ironically the number of Strategic Planning Sessions, where no agenda, no minutes and nobody is allowed to reveal publicly the discussion - since Mayor Fraser Tolmie’s election, exceeds that of the Higgins’ administration. In my opinion, how the May 15, 2018 special Executive Committee meeting was held and steps taken to protect its privacy should be setting off alarms when it comes to transparency and accountability. Through a Freedom Of Information (FOI) request what I see is a concerted attempt to hide details from the public. Details which do not fit the exemption listed and backed up by a months long review by the Province’s Freedom of Information and Privacy Commissioner’s Office. In a May 13, 2018 email, obtained by an FOI, city clerk/solicitor Myron Gulka-Teichko advised precautions to keep the meeting’s topic secret. “Also, in terms of locations, the City must provide public notice for all of its meetings. That notice would also include location of the meeting. We would expect the meeting to be held in-camera i.e. behind closed doors are allowed to do with discussions with a third party. However, if the meeting location is the Cultural Centre, it would effectively make the meeting public,” Gulka-Teichko wrote. Now this is not a column about what really happened at the Cultural Centre and how a volunteer board in many

ways found themselves victims of dirty Downtown backroom politics. It is about the machinations of what is happening at City Hall when it comes to in-camera, behind closed doors or secret meetings. It is an example of how one occurred, and the justification City Hall try to use to hold it. It is a justification in the end the Privacy Commissioner’s Office told the City they were wrong. The City was not justified in keeping the details secret and to release documents. The documents released in this FOI led to a second FOI where I felt things were being withheld – including financials – and as a result I requested a review by the Freedom of Information office where I provided sufficient evidence to back up my concerns. In his final report (219 – 2018) June 17, 2019 Saskatchewan Privacy Commissioner Ronald J. Kruzeniski found my request for review justified. Please note the final report can be found in regards to the Privacy Commissioner’s decision at The summation read “The Commissioner found that the exemptions did not apply and recommended release of the records. He also reviewed the search efforts of the City and recommended that additional records be released. Finally, the Commissioner recommended that the City develop and implement a policy to discourage the use of personal email accounts for official business, to ensure information is appropriately safeguarded and records are retained.” As a result of this report, almost a year later when I initially started asking questions, Council decided to release the records as well as adopt a policy disallowing Council to use personal email accounts for City business. It was done for transparency and accountability reasons. For myself personally, it leaves me wondering…is this an isolated incident? Or given the number of in-camera meetings being held, how many if challenged would actually force out more details because they do not warrant an exemption? How many of these meetings should be

If you listen very closely to Council and how many times do you hear ‘we already discussed this’ or ‘we already decided this’? Is there at least one of these issues – especially policy issues – which should be discussed in public so the public can enter the debate and provide feedback if they so chose? To this date, if you go to the City’s website and take a look at the agenda of the special Executive Committee meeting held on May 15, 2018 the real details released by an FOI remain hidden. Se-

Test your trivia knowledge for Heartland Hospice Larissa Kurz

Trivia buffs should start sharpening their skills because Heartland Hospice is diving into the realm of games with its first trivia night fundraiser on Sept. 20, and director Trish Gottselig is more than excited for the event. “It’s something that seems to really gear towards all ages and all kinds of personalities, so it seemed inclusive,” said Gottselig. “I’m getting a great deal of interest so far, and so if it’s super successful, I’d like to do it every year.” The topics are yet to be determined, said Gottselig, but she is sure that the evening will be interesting for both teens and adults. Things will be run by trivia

master Kevin Toth, and trivia hopefuls of all ages are welcome to try their hand at winning any of the prizes available. Teams of up to ten people are allowed to join, and admission will be $5 at the door on the night of the event — no need for tickets. Things kick off at 7 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Parish Hall basement, with snacks and beverages available for sale throughout the night. All proceeds will go right back to Heartland Hospice, as the prizes and snacks have all been donated. Fundraisers like this one are helping Heartland Hospice get one step closer to their ultimate goal of

opening a hospice care facility here in Moose Jaw. “Heartland Hospice is working hard to raise funds, and all of our fundraising events are to promote our continued mission to support the provision of compassionate holistic care to those nearing the end of their physical life,” said Gottselig. Heartland Hospice currently has one hospice room at the Pioneer Lodge, which became available in the spring of this year. Questions about the event can be emailed to

City Hall Council Notes

CITY in the Dark…. The way the city communicates with its citizens is stunningly questionable. They have every opportunity to communicate their city plans/press releases, etc. early enough to let media get the word out, but it seems that they would rather keep Moose Javians in the dark by giving spur of the moment notice, either that or perhaps they can’t seem to think or plan ‘past the seat of their pants’.

New cleanup program encourages residents to care for community Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Get out those reflective vests, work boots and gloves, the City of Moose Jaw wants you to help keep the community clean and experience satisfaction in a job well done. Guidelines around the municipality’s Community Cleanup Program were unanimously approved during city council’s Sept. 9 regular meeting. The program encourages community groups to adopt specific areas of the municipality and clean up litter. As part of the program, 100 safety vests at $6.90 each will be purchased for $690, while 100 pairs of gloves at $1.35 each will be purchased for $135, paid for out of the city manager’s special projects ac-

count. Landfill tipping fees of $69 per tonne of garbage will be waived as part of the program. Garbage bags will also be provided. Highlights of the program include: • The program will be in effect for one week in the spring and fall • Interested groups should submit their applications to the engineering department • The municipality will advertise the program and request participation in advance of each designated cleanup week • Groups and individuals are encouraged to pick litter all year, however, if a group cleans up outside of the designated week, they should notify the engineering depart-

ment. The first community cleanup week is from Monday, Sept. 30 to Sunday, Oct. 6. A full list of locations available to be adopted for cleanup can be found at www. Council discussion City hall wants to take a main role in this program, Puffalt said. City administration wants to have as many municipal employees help with the cleanup program as a way to lead by example. If more than one group wants to clean the same area, city administration will see if both groups will work together or if one would take another location. Whether it’s

a community organization or a group of family and friends, city administration wants residents to work safely and ensure they have their paperwork submitted for safety reasons. “Our intent was to see how it goes the first year, and if we’re able to get a number of groups that take specific areas, we would probably leave that until somebody said, ‘I don’t want to do it anymore,’” Puffalt added. The mayor resounded that if city hall leads in this area and has community partners join, residents would see the enthusiasm for cleanliness being displayed, which could spread to other areas of Moose Jaw.

Insurance company receives heritage grant to spruce up building Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Seaborn Insurance Limited will receive a $5,000 heritage grant from the municipality to enhance the façade of its office building, which was constructed in 1906. The building is located at 463 Main Street and was constructed at the beginning of the 20th century as a residential property. It was converted into an office in the 1950s after Seaborn bought the building. The insurance company then constructed an addition to the building in 1997. The original façade has not been substantially altered since its original construction, according to a report from the department of planning and development services. The outside of the building still resembles a typical residential façade. The applicant proposed in its Downtown Façade Improvement Grant application to make extensive renovations to present a more modern commercial front-

age. City council voted 6-1 on a motion during its Sept. 9 regular meeting to provide the $5,000 matching grant to the insurance company. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. The original recommendation came from the municipal heritage advisory committee. The grant will be awarded upon completion of the work and upon confirmation that the requirements of the grant program have been met. Some of the proposed improvements Seaborn Insurance intends to make include the complete reconstruction of the façade, the replacement of building materials, windows, doors, lights and signage. Cornice lines would be constructed in place of the existing sloped roof, while multiple parapets would be added to increase the look of the building.

“The proposed renovations will showcase a modern design that utilizes heritage-inspired materials,” the report to council said. “The result will be a contrast between the existing heritage resources of downtown and newer buildings.” The estimated cost of the proposed renovations are $111,420.69. The grant policy indicates the maximum matching municipal contribution to one application is $5,000. This could be easily reached by contributing to the cost of the brick work, which itself is expected to cost $27,483.60, the report added. The heritage design guidelines mention brick as a preferred material choice for downtown buildings to keep with the aesthetic look of the area.

Councillor wants to see meetings better scheduled Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Coun. Heather Eby would like to see city council handle its committee meetings more efficiently to ensure everyone’s attention is focused on the issues being discussed. Eby was particularly concerned about how council schedules some of its meetings back to back, she told city council during its Sept. 9 regular meeting. She pointed to the Aug. 12 personnel committee meeting, which began at 4:01 p.m. and had about an hour to finish as much business as possible before the regular council meeting began at 5:30 p.m. The personnel committee recessed at 5:09 p.m. for the council meeting, but did not reconvene that evening since the in-camera — or private — portion of council’s executive committee meeting went until 10:05 p.m., she continued. Councillors and city hall staff were becoming tired after those five hours, while some municipal staff had been there for six hours.

“I feel after that many hours, we don’t give our best attention on all the agenda items,” Eby said. “I feel any item on the agenda is worth our sharpness.” Personnel committee members gathered to finish their meeting on Sept. 3; that meeting last 96 minutes. A report is expected to come forward soon that could address this issue, Eby added. She looked forward to discussing that report since she didn’t think the way council stacked its meetings was the best it could do. Council then voted 6-1 to adopt the minutes of the personnel committee meeting. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. The next regular council meeting is Sept. 23.

City Hall Council Notes

Vanier grad receives city scholarship for academics, community activities Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Vanier Collegiate graduate Jenna Meili is the recipient of this year’s Dubinsky Family Scholarship. The City of Moose Jaw’s scholarship selection committee chose Meili from “another stellar field of candidates� from Moose Jaw-area schools, Lori Meyer, co-ordinator of Prairie South School Division’s Bursary Fund program, explained in a letter to city council. Meili graduated from Vanier with an average of 96.3 per cent; she has now begun studying at the University of Regina. Besides Meili’s academics, she was also involved in her community and school, Meyer continued. For example, Meili was active in five school sports, music programs, and youth leadership. In the community, she was a volunteer at Riverside Mission, Sets4Supper, the

City of Moose Jaw Youth Council, and the Duke of Edinburgh Awards Program that encourages youths to volunteer in their community and be an example to others. “Jenna is definitely an excellent example of a hard-working student who is able to balance outstanding school and community involvement with outstanding academic achievement,� added Meyer. Meyer sent a letter to city council announcing Meili as the winner of the scholarship. City council unanimously received and filed the report during its Sept. 9 regular meeting. Mayor Fraser Tolmie presented the scholarship cheque of $2,385.02 to Meili at the start of the meeting. In 1982, the City of Moose Jaw entered into a trust agreement with Boris Dubinsky and Administrative Consultants

Limited. The purpose was to establish an endowment that the municipality would hold, with interest from the main endowment awarded annually as part of a scholarship to a Moose Jaw high school student pursuing university or college. The amount of the scholarship is supposed to be equivalent to the amount of income the trust fund earned in the preceding 12-month period. The fund’s trustee is not allowed to use the capital of the fund — or any portion thereof — for any purpose other than for earning income for scholarship awards. The directors of education from Prairie South and Holy Trinity Catholic school divisions determine which nominated graduate should receive the scholarship. The next regular council meeting is Sept. 23.

Dogs and bikes still prohibited from using ‘jewel’ Crescent Park Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Crescent Park — a jewel in the heart of Moose Jaw — will continue to remain free of dogs and bicyclists for the foreseeable future. The health and safety of children and seniors, the tranquility of the park, and some negative emails from residents all factored into city council’s discussion during the Sept. 9 regular meeting about removing signage that prohibited dogs and bikes from Crescent Park. Coun. Chris Warren — who proposed the motion — made a plea to open the park to dogs and bikes, but in the end, council voted 4-3 against allowing leashed pets in the park. Mayor Fraser Tolmie and councillors Scott McMann, Heather Eby and Brian Swanson were opposed, while councillors Crystal Froese, Dawn Luhning and Warren were in favour. Council also voted 5-2 against removing the signage

so bicyclists could use the park. Warren and Luhning were in favour, while everyone else was opposed. Council discussion Many people emailed Warren saying dogs and bikes should be allowed in the park, he said. Those in favour said most major cities encourage leashed pets and cyclists to use green spaces. They also said parks should be family-friendly and allow pets, plus children on bikes. “We need to be a progressive community,� he said. Warren looked at seven other cities and found they allow dogs and bikes in their parks. Meanwhile, he found that Wakamow Valley also allows leashed dogs and bikes, with very few issues there either. City hall has received 10 complaints about dogs in parks since 2017 and only two complaints about bike/ pedestrian issues, he continued. The municipality also has an Official Community Plan that encourages alternative forms of transportation, such as biking, walking and public transit. “The recreational objectives in section 13 are to provide an open space to meet the needs of Moose Jaw residents (and) that aids in attraction and retention of young families,� Warren said. “Allowing dogs and bikes in Crescent Park will promote cycling and help families.� In one email received and included in the council package, a resident wondered if Warren had ever visited the 28-acre Crescent Park. With a chuckle, he said he had been there recently with his kids for a picnic. He no-

Park underused Crescent Park is underused and opening it up could draw more people, said Luhning. It would beneficial if there were doggy pickup bags at all entrances and inside so pet owners knew they had to clean up after their dogs. “Maybe there is the possibility that because Crescent Park is the jewel of the city that if somebody gets caught,â€? she laughed, “that the fine is that much more expensive in Crescent Park.â€? Eby walks everywhere in Moose Jaw and sees dog poop regularly, she said. The bylaw around picking up after animals is obviously not being enforced and she wondered who could possibly enforce it successfully. She wanted to take her grandchildren to Crescent Park without them stepping in feces. Moose Jaw is fortunate to have a great trail system with many paths that cyclists and dog walkers can use, she continued. She pointed out residents begged council to build an off-leash dog park years ago, with the promise that dog poop would be picked up. “I have been told that you can’t walk through there without walking through dog poop ‌ ,â€? she said. “Crescent Park is a jewel and I want it to stay a jewel.â€? Having lived near the Sunningdale neighbourhood, McMann pointed out he too saw dog owners not pick up after their pets. While some residents support this, he didn’ think there was a large enough demand to change the rules.

City Hall Council Notes Appeals board grants more project approvals despite conflict with zoning bylaw Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The Development Appeals Board continues to give property owners permission to construct projects that conflict with the City of Moose Jaw’s zoning bylaw. The board met on Aug. 28 to hear appeals from property owners Sam Shaw, Patricia Watling and Jay Fellinger, each of whom made applications for variances under the zoning bylaw. It then presented a report with its decisions to city council during the Sept. 9 regular meeting. Council unanimously voted to receive and file the report. Shaw — on behalf of property owner Sammual Morrison — wanted to construct a large garage on a double-wide lot at 459 Lillooet Street West and Five Avenue Southwest that has a floor space of 179 square metres (1,927 square feet), contrary to the 83.6 square metres (900 square feet) in the zoning bylaw. The garage would allow Morrison to store his vintage and collector/restored vehicles. The appeals board received two letters from adjacent neighbours, who said they had no problem with the proposed garage. In reviewing the evidence, the board decided to grant

the requested variance relaxation since the size of the property is larger than average; the building would not cause visual obstructions or concerns for the health, safety and general welfare of residents; and neighbouring properties would not be “injuriously affected.” Morrison had a similar application rejected in 2017, pointed out Coun. Scott McMann. At that time the property owner wanted to build a structure that was 24 feet by 70 feet in size; now he wants to build a structure that is 24 feet by 68 feet. The councillor wondered why this new application was approved. It is the appeals board that makes the decision, not city administration, explained Michelle Sanson, director of planning and development services. City administration simply gives the board the facts of each case; it can appeal the decision if it doesn’t like the outcome. That has been done in the past. Watling wanted to construct a new front porch at 1122 Seventh Avenue Northwest and replace the existing front porch that was built in 1949. The front yard setback would be 4.57 metres (15 feet), which is contrary

to the minimum required setback of 7.5 metres (24.6 feet) in the zoning bylaw. The appeals board granted the requested variance relaxation since the new porch would be the same size as the old porch and would be in the same location; the neighbourhood aesthetics would continue to be preserved and even improved with a new porch; and granting the variance “will not injuriously affect the neighbouring properties.” Fellinger wanted to construct a detached garage at 1110 Simcoe Street, which would have a height from grade to peak of 5.73 metres (18.8 feet), contrary to the maximum height of 4.5 metres (14.76 feet) in the zoning bylaw. In reviewing the evidence, the board granted the requested variance relaxation since the proposed development would not negatively affect the comfort and aesthetics of the neighbourhood; would fit into the neighbourhood and not result in excessive shadowing or cause visual disturbances; and would not “injuriously affect the neighbouring properties.” The next regular council meeting is Sept. 23.

Council wants debt limit kept at $95 million

The City of Moose Jaw plans to maintain its debt limit at $95 million, an amount that city administration hopes it doesn’t reach anytime soon — at least, in the short-term. During its Sept. 9 regular meeting, city council voted 6-1 to ask the Saskatchewan Municipal Board to maintain the municipality’s debt limit at that amount. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Background The board established the municipality’s debt limit on Nov. 6, 2017, for a two-year period ending Dec. 31, 2019, according to a council report. The board will review the debt limit after that date, but should maintain the limit based on this request. City administration expects the $95 million to meet future borrowing needs until the end of 2021. The municipality’s debt as of June 30, 2019 was $61,573,745, the report continued. The majority of this is composed of borrowing for the sanitary sewer utility, the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant Corporation (BPWTC), and water infrastructure for the cast iron project, plus the multiplex. In 2020, city administration expects to borrow $20 million for waterworks infrastructure funding and $5 million for an automated water meter infrastructure project. This would push up the debt level to $78 million, after other debt re-

There was also a “referendum” during the 2016 municipal election when 80 per cent of voters supported an infrastructure levy, he continued, while council recently received the ability to direct $9 million in federal transit funding to the cast iron water project. Tolmie later clarified that by “referendum” he meant residents and council candidates discussed an infrastructure

Chris Warren. While debt may have increased since 2007 from zero, during recent budget discussions council learned there has been “an exponential increase” in capital spending for infrastructure upgrades, particularly waterworks upgrades. “The recognition is there that we historically have not maintained our infrastructure in the last decade and change,” he added. “That has changed and we have turned a corner. We have put a priority around that and the work’s being done.” The next regular council meeting is Sept. 23.

Central tops Vanier in high school football action Cyclones improve to 2-0 as Vikings drop to 0-2 in first home game of season

Facing a team both small in numbers and light on experience, the Central Cyclones could have been expected to take a blowout victory over the Vanier Vikings in the first game of the Moose Jaw High School Football League season at Gutheridge Field. Given the recent history between the teams and how close games have been in recent seasons, no one was taking anything for granted. In the end, the gulf between the two teams was just too deep to see a close finish. The Cyclones built a 17-0 lead at half and rolled on to a 34-0 victory to improve to 2-0 on the campaign. Vanier dropped to 0-2. “It’s always a tough game when we play them and we knew they’d be up for it and we’d be up for it, too,” said Central coach Colin Belsher. “We had a battle with them at the end of the year last year in the playoff game and I understand that there are a lot of things that go on, but I’m proud of the guys. We have a lot of young guys playing right now with the guys we had graduate from last year, we had a lot of penalties and mental mistakes and I think that comes with the territory when you

Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express have younger players. If we can clean that up, we’ll be a lot better off.” As Belsher mentioned, the contest was rife with penalties, even if the game wasn’t exceptionally unsportsmanlike. That saw many a promising drive for both teams come to a scoreless end, adding an element of frustration to the proceedings. “I think the number of penalties put a sour taste in my mouth because a lot of them were mental, blocks in the back and late hits and things like that,” Belsher said. “So we need to be mentally stronger than that, if we can clean those things up we’ll be a lot better off and if we can clean those up I’ll be a lot happier.” Kaleb Schanoski led the Cyclones offence, including a 55-punt return for a Central’s Dylan Boughen hauls in a catch in the endzone as Vanier’s Julian touchdown in the third quarter. “We still have a lot to work on, a win is Allen just misses tipping the pass. a win and we had a lot of penalties and there’s a lot to improve on,” Schanoski practice and games, all with the goal of said. “But going out there and beating seeing things improve down the road. one of our rivals, it was great team win. “We’re in a position where skill posiEven with all the penalties we went out tion-wise we’re very inexperienced, we and played a great game.” have a kid trying to learn how to play For Vikings head coach Ryan Gottselig, quarterback for the first time in his life it’s been a matter of teaching on the go as and in his second game ever,” Gottselig Vanier looks to build experience through said. “He’s trying and we’re trying to ex-

It’s one or two things on every play it seems, we gotta get it cleaned up soon.” Similarly, the Vikings found themselves off to a slow start last season before steady improvement saw them nearly pull off an upset in the playoffs – Central defeated Vanier 2-0 in the quarter-final. “Our o-line is more veteran than it was last year, so hopefully we can lean on them a little more, but it starts for us with getting traction in the run game and the passing comes off of that,” Gottselig said of what they need to do to get back to a similar level of play. “We’re not in a position where we can throw it 20, 30 times a game, so we have to get traction in our run game for sure.” Further scoring information and stats were unavailable as of this writing. League action continues Friday, Sept. 20 as Central takes on Peacock (4 p.m., Gutheridge Field) followed by Vanier travelling to Weyburn and Swift Current making the trip to Yorkton on Saturday, Sept. 21.

Disc golf course on par at Wakamow Valley Larissa Kurz

It’s a game that the entire family can get into because anyone can master the skills of disc golf. And now, disc golf hopefuls and enthusiasts alike can work on their throwing arm at the newly installed course in Wakamow Valley. The 9-hole course begins in Paashkwow Park East, located in the Churchill area. There is parking available on Wellesley St., which leaves a short walk over to where the course begins. The maintenance crews keep the trails between the holes groomed and easy to follow, and those looking for a full map can find it on the UDisc app — a GPS-based disc golf directory that keeps players on the right path and can even keep the score during a game. Anyone can grab their frisbee and take the course for a run but Trish German, the event coordinator at Wakamow Valley, recommends using a disc golf set for the true experience of the game. A set includes several weighted discs, which are used in the same manner as golf clubs — a putter, a fairway, a driver. Disc golf sets are available in some stores, but people can also borrow one of the three sets available at

It’s pretty hot right now, and people have been inquiring quite a bit,” said German. “If we have them available, they can come grab them for the night or the weekend.” This is the first disc golf course in Moose Jaw, and players seem to be excited. Already the Wakamow Valley

Authority has seen lots of players out and enjoying the course. “It’s definitely a positive [addition] for the Valley,” said German. “I had no idea disc golf was this popular until we had this course installed.” The disc golf course is a project that Wakamow has been looking into for about 2 years, and they are happy to see it finally come to fruition. The entire installation of the course was taken up by the Wakamow Valley Authority, who will be holding Dinner for Disc Golf, a steak night fundraiser on Sept. 27 to supplement the cost of installation. Tickets are available for $20 by contacting the Wakamow Valley Authority office at 1 (306) 692-2717 or at, or dropping by during business hours. Tickets will also be available at the door the night of the event.

Warriors add overage goaltender Brkin Newest Tribe netminder coming off stellar season with Spokane Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

After the kind of season he put together for the Spokane Chiefs in 2018-19, it seemed like it was only a matter of time before the 20-year-old goaltender Bailey Brkin landed somewhere in the Western Hockey League for his overage season. It turns out, the Moose Jaw Warriors is that place. The Warriors announced Thursday that they had added the Sherwood Park, Alta. native to their roster with the goal of shoring up their youthful goaltending corps, as the first games of the regular season approach. “I can’t even begin to describe how I’m feeling right now,” Brkin said on “I’m so thankful I have an opportunity to play again in the league, I was waiting at home (staying ready) so I’m just looking forward to showcasing that I’ve gotten better over the summer.” Brkin put together impressive numbers for Spokane last season, finishing the campaign with a 2.75 goals against average and .914 save percentage while going 27-11-1-2 in 45 games. He was even more effective in the playoffs, posting a 2.55 GAA and .922 SP as the Chiefs battled their way to the Western Conference final. “First and foremost, we know Bailey somewhat from

Bailey Brkin in action with the Spokane Chiefs last season. his time in Swift Current and you look at this past year, he had an outstanding year in Spokane, both in the regular season and in the playoffs, he looks like he’s really matured into a good veteran goaltender,” said Warriors general manager Alan Millar. The situation prior to the trade was kind of pressing – Evanoff is continuing to recover from off-season hip surgery and isn’t expected back in the line-up until December at the earliest. That left Jackson Berry, 17, and

Brett Mirwald, 16 as the only netminders in Warriors camp, with neither having more than a handful of WHL games under their belt. “With the Evanoff injury, we were looking to add some experience to start the season here and Brkin was a guy who had 27 wins last year in the regular season, he had a really good goals against average and save percentage,” Millar said. “He was a big part of Spokane getting to the Western Conference final and he was a key player in the upset over Everett in the second-round last year… We think he comes in here and solidifies a young group as we get ready for Regina and the start of the season.” The Warriors re-assigned Mirwald to the Saskatoon Blazers after the deal was finalized. Brkin is looking forward to the opportunity to return to the ice with his new team. The plan was for he and Berry to split the two exhibition games against the Brandon Wheat Kings this past weekend. “I’m just gong to go out there, stop the puck and do my job (play my game) and be a leader,” Brkin said. “I’m a veteran going into the league now, it seems crazy to say it, so I’m going to try and be a leader and bring character into the room and try and be a leader on and off the ice.”

AAA Warriors pick up pair of pre-season wins Warriors take 3-2 win over Notre Dame, hold off Regina for 5-4 victory Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw AAA Warriors are showing off some impressive late-game chops through the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League pre-season. The Warriors picked up a pair of wins over the weekend, with goals in the final 10 minutes of both contests securing the victories – 3-2 over the Notre Dame Hounds on Saturday and 5-4 in overtime over the Regina Pat Canadians on Sunday. Moose Jaw improved to a league-best 4-0 in the pre-season standings and will close out their exhibition games on Thursday, Sept. 19 when they host the Pat Cs (7 p.m., Mosaic Place). “It was a good weekend for the guys, but it’s still early,” said Warriors coach Trevor Weisgerber. “It’s exhibition so we’re putting guys in different scenarios and it’s just little things like blocking shots at the end of the games that we have to get better at. We need to sacrifice in order to win those games, especially when we get into the regular season. “But we’re happy with how the guys are playing. We have a good group of kids here who work hard and that’s all we can ask. As long as we’re in every game and we’re competing, doing what we need to do to win some hockey games, we’re

happy with it.” Warriors 3, Notre Dame 2 The Warriors scored three goals in the final 2:42 of the game – including the game-winner with 45 seconds remaining – as they took a 3-2 victory over the Hounds in Wilcox. Notre Dame took a 1-0 lead out of the first period off a goal from Avery Kirkup before extending their edge to 2-0 when John Greenough scored 3:32 into the final frame. Connor McGrath got the Warriors on the board with 2:42 remaining in the contest and added his second marker on the power play only 21 seconds later to knot things up 2-2. That set the stage for Atley Calvert to score the game winner with 45 seconds remaining, as Davis Fry and Sam Boldt drew assists. Chase Coward turned aside 24 shots to earn the win, Ian Lee made 45 saves in the Notre Dame goal. Warriors 5, Regina 4 It was the opposition’s turn to stage a massive comeback in Sunday’s contest, as the Warriors took a 3-0 lead into the final frame only to see Regina score three times to tie the game with 6:52 remaining. Parker Jasper would score his second of the game with 5:42 remaining, though, and it looked as if his marker would hold as the game-winner until Noah Kuntz scored with nine seconds left to send things into overtime. There, Lucius Schmidt would score 2:39 into the extra frame to give the Warriors the win. Ben Peterson finished with a goal and an assist for Moose Jaw while Schmidt added a pair of assists to his overtime winner. Chase Coward got the start in goal and

stopped all 15 shots he faced, while Jayden Watterson faced eight shots through the third period and overtime. Noah Kuntz had a goal and two assists for Regina, while Carson Whyte scored twice and Brayden Barnett added a goal

and an assist. Jackson Taupert got the start for the Pat Canadians and stopped 14 shots, Joshua McCloughlin gave up two goals on four shots in a period and half as his replacement.

Warriors close out pre-season with win in Brandon Alarie, Hayes score as Tribe take 2-1 victory over Wheaties, regular season starts next weekend Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Warriors are taking note of their opponents and winning in pre-season, beating out the Brandon Wheat Kings this past weekend. Eric Alarie and Cade Hayes each scored goals and Bailey Brkin made 26 saves in his first start in a Warriors uniform as the Tribe picked up a 2-1 victory in Brandon.

“...That’s our goal, to improve this team and make sure that we’re technically sound and defensively sound...”

-Warriors head coach Tim Hunter The win saw the Warriors close out their pre-season schedule with a 2-5 record, while the Wheat Kings finished 2-2 in their four exhibition games. “It’s part of the process and how guys go about playing the game and showing that they’re capable of playing,” said Warriors head coach Tim Hunter. “I thought Sunday in Brandon we had a much better effort than we did in Moose Jaw; there were a lot of technical things we did wrong in the first game and we had gone over all those things, so it was kind of disappointing to have that happen. But we corrected all those. The effort was great in Brandon, right from the goaltender on out to the young 02-03 group to the veteran guys.”

Warriors forward Carson Denomie chases the puck down in the Brandon zone.

Seeing the team put improvements and corrections into practice quickly is something that’s going to be key going forward for a team that will be loaded with youth when the regular season begins next weekend. “They’re young guys and not all of them come from really structured backgrounds, the difference in Midget hockey is eight to 10 feet, the difference in junior hockey is about two feet. So there’s lots of learning to do, and lots of teaching to do,” Hunter said. “But we’re willing to put the patience in because

we know these guys will be good hockey players one day and they’re going to get better every day. That’s our goal, to improve this team and make sure that we’re technically sound and defensively sound and we’ll score by committee.” It was especially positive to see Brkin step in and play as well as he did despite having yet to see game action this season. Added by the Warriors a little over a week ago after emerging as the odd man out in the Spokane Chiefs goaltending situation, the overage netminder will be looked to as a stabilizing influence as

Adam Evanoff recovers from off-season hip surgery. “He played real well,” Hunter said. “He’s really calming and confident in the net and really good with the puck, he had to make a couple of big saves and he did. It wasn’t a lot of work for him, but for a guy who hadn’t skated before we got him 10 days ago, he looked pretty good. He’s a 20-year-old, so he’s a pro and he knows how to prepare himself and that’s what we expected.” The next week will be all about preparation for the Warriors, as they kick off their season Friday, Sept. 20 in Regina against the Pats before hosting their home opener Saturday, Sept. 21 against Regina. Game time is 7 p.m. at Mosaic Place. “We’re still building, we added (overager) Jadon Joseph and he’ll bring some hard hockey and skill and leadership to our group, and then just getting everyone kind of settled and trying to find some chemistry and line combinations together,” Hunter said. “Obviously a lot will be determined by if and when we get Brayden Tracey back (from Anaheim Ducks camp), but some of the guys have separated themselves a bit and have played pretty consistent and pretty well, as well come guys have been a little bit up and down, which is to be expected. “So we’ll let them all fall into place with where they’ve performed, let things fall into place and get ready to compete against Regina on Friday night.”

Warriors add Joseph from Giants to fill final overage spot High scoring 20-year-old was key part of Vancouver run to WHL Final last season Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Warriors have filled the final overage spot on their roster – and the player they’ve added comes with a host of offensive upside. The Warriors announced Saturday that they’d acquired Jadon Joseph from the Vancouver Giants in exchange for a third-round WHL Bantam Draft pick in 2020 and a conditional fifth-round pick in 2022. Joseph, 6-foot-1 and 180lbs, played in 68 games last season, scoring 22 goals and 53 points while suiting up for the Lethbridge Hurricanes, Regina Pats and Vancou-

ver Giants. It was with the Giants that he had his greatest impact, putting up 10 goals and 28 points in the final 32 games of the regular season before adding another seven goals and 12 points in 22 games as the Giants won the WHL Western Conference championship. “We are very pleased to add Jadon Joseph to our hockey club,” said Warriors general manager Alan Millar in a press release. “Jadon is a strong, hard, two-way player who can also contribute offensively. He has a relentless work ethic and brings very strong character to our team. He will compliment our young group very well.” The Sherwood Park, Alta. native has an interesting stat MOOSE JAW TIER 1 HOCKEY INC. (Moose Jaw Warriors Hockey Club)

Swift Current claims first Soccerfest championship

Powerhouse Ardens go undefeated to take first place in high school girls soccer tournament Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

With all their seasons filled with success in the Moose Jaw high school girls soccer league and all the teams they’ve had contend for provincial championships over the years, one thing has always escaped the Swift Current Ardens…a Moose Jaw Soccerfest championship, until now. The Ardens picked off four straight wins on their way to winning the early-season soccer showcase, taking a comfortable 5-0 victory over Prince Albert St. Mary in the tournament final. “For the team, this is a big victory,” said Ardens head coach Steve Mah. “This is a somewhat young team and a lot of them haven’t played together, so we’re pretty excited to get four wins. This has never been an easy tournament to win for any team here, so we’re pretty excited about this one.” Swift Current comes into the new soccer campaign as the 11-time defending Moose Jaw league champions and architects of countless winning seasons over the years. Knowing the quality of teams the Ardens have had in that span of time, it seems strange they’d never won Soccerfest prior to 2019. “We’ve had a lot of close calls over the years, some games we should have won in the final and just didn’t get a bounce or a call or whatever,” Mah said. “It’s always a tough tournament to win because you have a lot of good teams here and it’s a grind, you pick up injuries, you fin-

over Yorkton Sacred Heart, 3-0 over the Peacock Tornadoes and 4-1 over the Estevan Elecs in the consolation side final. The Central Cyclones won their opener 4-0 over Regina Luther but were unable to keep the momentum going as they dropped a 7-2 decision to St. Mary in the quarter-final before rebounding with a 1-0 victory over Yorkton Regional to advance to the fourth-place game. LeBoldus won that contest 4-0 to see the Cyclones finished fifth. Things were all the more heartening for the rebuilding Tornadoes as they picked up their first win of the season 2-1 over Luther to open consolation bracket play. Peacock lost their opener 7-0 to St. Mary and dropped their final game 4-1 to Notre Dame.

The Swift Current Ardens celebrate their Soccerfest tournament victory. ish a game and you have to go right back out and warm up again. So it’s definitely meaningful, especially for the coaches who have been at this for awhile.” Swift Current opened with a 12-0 win over Notre Dame before defeating Regina LeBoldus 4-2 and edging Regina O’Neill 1-0 in the semifinal. Making things all the more interesting is that this isn’t a ‘traditional’ powerhouse Ardens squad – with their youth and inexperience as a full team, it could have been a rare rebuilding year. But as it turns out…

“I think we take a lot of confidence out of this, knowing we can play with some of the best teams in the province,” Mah said. “We’ve already faced Weyburn twice and picked up a couple wins against them, which also gave us some confidence and an idea of where we stand in the league. So we know we have some work to do to get ready to take on Moose Jaw’s best teams later on this season.” The Vanier Spirits put together one of the top local performances, as they opened with a 4-1 loss to Yorkton Regional but followed with three straight wins – 7-0

RBC reports sees need to develop Farm workers, technology in Canada By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

Opportunities and challenges in the Canadian agriculture sector are highlighted in an RBC report on the industry. “We concluded that with the right mix of skills, capital and technology agriculture could add $11 billion to Canada’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product) by 2030,” says the report In 2016, agriculture accounted for $32 billion of GDP. To get there, Canada needs to re-think the approach to education, attract more young people and invest in new technology. Few countries are “positioned as well as Canada” to meet the food demand from 835 million more people by 2030. But Canada could fall behind others and has lost market share of global agriculture exports, falling to 3.9 per cent from 6.3 per cent in 20 years. Three trade agreements with the United States, Asia and European Union provide access to competitive markets. The report suggests Canada can add even more than $11 billion if it follows the lead of the Netherlands or Australia to develop skills and embrace a culture of technology. Skill shortages haunt the industry. About 16,500 jobs remain unfilled after 60,000 foreign workers came here.

By 2029, Canada will have 123,000 unfilled agricultural jobs unless action is taken. Not only farm skills are needed; needs exist for agricultural managers in human resources, integrated systems, finance, engineering and environment. Canadian farmers rely on government for ag tech investment for 89 per cent of the total compared with 27 per cent in the U.S.A. Canada’s share of global ag investment at 3.4 per cent is less than India or Brazil. Both of those countries increased export market share since 2000. The Canadian ag sector is efficient with 7.6 per cent of farms reporting $1 million or more sales compared with two per cent in 2000 and with 2.9 per cent of today’s U.S. farms. Ninety per cent of high-volume farms use GPS and 52 per cent of large oilseed producers use GIS (Geographical Information Systems). Better access to loan capital is a must. Another challenge comes from aging farmers. One-quarter of Canadian farmers will be 65 or over by 2030. Ron Walter can be reached at

Canadianizing your shopping list is getting easier with new website Larissa Kurz

The movement to shop local is gaining traction across the country, and one website is looking to help Canadians discover the producers around them who are making quality Canadian products worth adding to your shopping list. is meant to be an informational hub about Canadian producers who have products that fit the guidelines for a Product of Canada label — that is, they are a product of at least 98 per cent Canadian ingredients, labour, and processing. Listing products that are homegrown and produced here is meant to encourage consumers to not only shop local, but to shop Canadian in an effort to reduce import costs and support the agricultural economy. The website already features 380 small businesses in the Canadian agri-food industry and lists 3,500 products that these companies produce. Over 40 companies from right here in Saskatchewan are on the roster, including local Caron entrepreneurs at Prairie Bee Meadery and their father company, Grandpa’s Garden. Co-owner Vicki Derksen was approached by the founder of CanadianCOOLFoods, Marnie Scott, to be listed on the website, and Derksen was pleased to see the support for local Canadian producers. “Certainly it has been a positive experience, being associated with Canadian COOL Foods,” said Derksen. “[Scott is] really passionate about giving people the opportunity to find local foods, where people are growing

them, making them, and even manufacturing them.” Although a number of the Canadian companies listed on the website are smaller producers like Prairie Bee Meadery, others are not — many products can be found in local grocery stores. It may be a surprise how easy it is to incorporate Canadian food products into daily routine. Derksen advocates strongly for the many benefits of choosing to eat local, which range from economical and environmental effects to the boost to personal health. “I don’t think people realize that the longer that the food takes to get your table from wherever it’s being shipped, the more nutritional value kind of drops off as you go along,” said Derksen. “I really think ultimately that by buying and supporting local foods, you’re improving the quality of your life.” The push towards eating local products has created a market for smaller producers, but it can be tough to be a small fish, said Derksen. Competing with global markets can be difficult, but she feels the benefits of shopping local are worth it and commends CanadianCOOLFoods on their mission. “I think that it’s beneficial not only to us as a company, but to the people here in Saskatchewan, to be able to know and be sure that the food that they’re getting is exactly what they say that it is,” said Derksen. “I think it really legitimizes the industry, as well, to be able to say that.” She urges other local producers to look into including themselves in this project. “I would really encourage other companies who are maybe starting out, orStreet who maybe 60 Athabasca East are not on a website 306-692-0533 like Canadian COOL Foods, to approach them,” said Minister: Tenford Derksen. “TheRev. more Jim people who know about it, I think Music Director: Karen Purdy the stronger the movement will become and will continueSunday, to grow.”May 14th, 2017 Worship Service 10:30am & Sunday School

Traditional Anglican Parish

On the Front Porch by Wanda Smith Clear the Decks “Clear the decks! In other words, get rid of everything that’s slowing you down, tie up loose ends and get things in order. I want you ready and able to engage with what is about to come your way.” This is a word that Rebecca King shared recently and when I read it, it leapt in my spirit. Presently, I have been working on purging and “clearing the decks” in our home. God seems to work in patterns and cycles, and I see a common thread amongst my friends and contacts. The common thread is that we are on a mission to bring order to our homes. We are simplifying our lives, getting rid of what we do not need for the next season. We desire to have a refuge where we can live, heal, rest and be recharged for the days to come. “Clear the decks” came from an old naval warfare term that meant to finish off what the crew was involved in and get ready for something new. Rebecca suggests to “...Take your fingers out of pots that they don’t need to be in. Let go of things that may be a good idea but really are unproductive and not bearing fruit. Step away from the things that are now nothing more than involvements that take up valuable space and time in your life and make sure the lane that you are called to run in is clear and ready. Prepare the way for the Lord - this is a ‘John the Baptist’ type clarion call. Prepare for a new course of action.’” As I ponder what “clear the decks” could mean specifically, there are unfinished projects staring us in the face, cupboards, closets, rooms, garages, sheds and storage buildings that are bulging at the seams and schedules filled to overflowing. Clutter not only takes up space in our homes, but it also takes up space in our minds. Clutter contributes to struggles in mental health, relationship challenges, financial cost, lack of sleep, stress, pressure, distraction, and inability to focus and concentrate. As we tackle clutter one drawer at a time, we will begin to see the fog lift, our homes will become a restful, peaceful place to be and our relationships will become deeper and stronger. Terri Savelle Foy suggests that “our outer world is a reflection of our inner world.” She goes on to state in her book, “Declutter Your Way to Success,” that “psychologists believe that our homes mirror our emotional state. When (our) surroundings are out of order, it causes us to feel less productive and less energetic.” You may feel your life is in a constant case of chaos. You may wonder “where do I begin?” The first step is to acknowledge that you want to clean up the clutter and clear the deck. Begin to desire to address the clutter one step at a time because you want peace and order in your life. You may not even know what that looks like, but I encourage you to ask God to begin to put that desire in you and then allow Him to guide you in your journey to clean up and clear out. This week start the ball rolling and clean out a drawer, your car or a cupboard. Stay tuned next week for practical steps to declutter your way to success. Let’s prepare for a new course of action and clear the decks! 1 Corinthians 14:40 “Let all things be done decently and in order.

WILFRED (BILL) JOSEPH DOMBOWSKY It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Wilfred (Bill) Joseph Dombowsky on September 8th, 2019. He was admitted to the hospital on Monday Sept 2nd and spent the remainder of his life on the medicine unit, surrounded by family, friends, and remarkable medical staff. Bill was born in Kelliher, SK on January 30, 1933. His childhood was spent in various communities in southern Saskatchewan. At 17, Bill joined the Canadian military in 1950 and as part of the Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadians) he participated in United Nations Operations in Korea. Bill continued to serve for 34 years. He travelled the world, during his time in the military and often reflected on his experiences. Of course, his greatest achievement while in the military was meeting the love of his life, Gail Kirkbride. They met while both stationed in Cornwallis and enjoyed many years together. In 1973 Bill was posted to CFB Moose Jaw and returned to Saskatchewan to begin his family with Gail where they welcomed a son, Richard, into the world. These were happy times spent with his wife, son and mother until he suddenly lost both his mother and wife in 1986. Devastated, he persisted on continuing to be a loving and understanding father. In 2002, one of Bill’s greatest sources of joy arrived in his grandson Jacob. Until his final days he had a strong relationship with “Jake” who was always a source of pride for him. Bill was also lucky later in life, to have found a true friend and partner in Mary. They were virtually inseparable and were a constant support to each other in good times and in bad. Bill also welcomed a daughter into his life through his son’s wife, Tracy. He often stated, Tracy was the daughter he never had. Bill was a man who was always surrounded by love and he truly appreciated life’s journey. He will be remembered by his son, Richard (Tracy), his grandson, Jacob, his partner and close friend Mary McCready, his siblings: Mary, Leona, Joan, Dolores, and Rudy, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his wife Gail, his father, Martin, his mother, Mary, his brothers: Martin, August, and Louis, and his sisters, Clara and Florentine. Bill was a kind, fair, charming, witty, smooth, polite, loving, intelligent, and humble man, who never asked for anything. He showed grace until the end. A Come and Go Celebration of Bill’s Life will be held on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at Church of Our Lady (566 Vaughan St, Moose Jaw) starting at 1600 hrs (4:00 pm). In Living memory of Bill a memorial tree planting will be made by JonesParkview Funeral Services. Please see our online book of condolences at and (Obituaries). Kelly Scott, Funeral Director.

She is further survived by grandchildren David (Kim), Williams, Scot (Marilyn) Williams, Robert Towriss, Nelson (Nicole) Towriss, Melissa (Andrew) Christoffersen, Conrad (Jasmine) Smith, Catherine (Warren) Stadnyk and Joshua (Rebecca) Marcil, and by 14 great-grandchildren, 8 great-greatgrandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. Gladys was born on August 13, 1913, and grew up on the family farm in the Wesley district north-west of Moose Jaw. When she finished elementary school, she moved to her Grandma Miller’s in Avonlea to complete Grades IX to XI, then to Moose Jaw to complete Grade XII – graduating from Central Collegiate in 1929, at the age of 16. In 1931-1932 Gladys went to Normal School in Moose Jaw, and over the next 6 years she taught at several one-room schools in southern Saskatchewan. In 1938 Gladys left her teaching career to marry William (Bill) Towriss. They settled into their new home in the Mount Pleasant District east of Moose Jaw, and it was there that Sharon, Bob and Moira were born. In 1949 they moved to a small ranch near Caron, where Rosalie was added to the family. In 1958, after 20 years of being a homemaker, Gladys went back teaching, while at the same time raising a family and taking University classes to upgrade her teaching certification. She taught at several rural and city schools, finally retiring from Lindale School in 1978. Gladys was raised in a family in which Bible reading and prayer were a daily ritual, and her faith sustained her through the ups and downs of life. She was an active member of St. Andrew’s Church in Caron, first as a Sunday School teacher, then as organist for over 30 years. After moving to Moose Jaw, she joined Zion United Church, where she was active in the UCW and Presbytery. In their retirement years Bill and Gladys enjoyed several special holidays, including trips to Florida, Hawaii and B.C. Gladys served on the executive of the Superannuated Teachers of Saskatchewan, Moose Jaw Chapter, and volunteered at the library helping children with reading difficulties. Always physically active, she bowled in the Farmer’s League and enjoyed brisk walks outdoors until age 104. She loved flowers and was known for her “green thumb”. Most of all, she loved being with her family – especially delighting in the little ones. The family wishes to thank the “angels” from Home Care for the compassionate care and emotional support during the last three weeks of Gladys’ life. The Funeral Service will be held at Zion United Church on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 2:00 pm. In recognition of Gladys’ life-long love of reading and learning, memorial donations may be made to CODE, a literacy agency she supported, 321 Chapel St. Ottawa, Ontario K1N 7Z2. In living memory of Gladys, a memorial tree planting will be made by Jones-Parkview Funeral Services. Please see our online book of condolences at and www. (Obituaries).
